Be - ar'the A .jTST a tVZ IN OF IS! 01 I Hears That Pennsylvania Railroad Is Trying to Abate It COMMITTEE MAKES REPORT Mr. Jennings Says Manufacturers Seek Practical Method of Consumption Prospects are bright for relief in the near future from the smoke evil, which is causing many heartaches for housewives, giving Harrisburg the appearance ot a dingy old town and turning Miss Tenn and the new Capitol black. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company isdoing excellent work in this direction and the many manufacturers throughout the city are showing a desire to bring about better conditions as soon as a practical system has been found. This good news was announced last evening at the September meeting of the Harrisburg Board of Trade by a special committee appointed to ascertain the conditions and suggest a remedy from the smoke evil. The committee has been busy and is going about its work In a manner that assures a complete success. The few members who were in attendance last evening heartily endorsed the work of the smoke committee and added further words of encouragement. The best evidence that the Pennsylvania Railroad Company is doing everything in its power to 'stop the smoke nuisance came from prominent officials and employes of the company who were present last evening. The other business transacted was of a routine character. The committee on membership gave notice that, during October an effort would be made to get the members together in order that everybody may become better acquainted. Manager and Secretary James A. Bell gave an interesting account of his trip to Jamestown and the celebration of Harrisburg day. which was told in The Telegraph last evening. The board of managers in its monthly report gave encouraging news from the local industries and told about the several industries which desire to locate in Harrisburg, one of which is the Hean & Molly Shoe Company, of Altoona. Smoke Report. The report of the smoke committee was presented by Ralph W. Dovinger, who has spent considerable time in securing data. His report was as follows: "Your committee has instituted an inquiry by letter and in person anions the principal producers of smoke in this community. "Your committee found that W. B. McCaleb. superintendent of the Philadelphia division of the Pennsylvania Railroad, is actively engaged In the smoke problem. Mr. McCleb called into the conference C. H. Smith, road foreman of engines, and W. H. Hampton, who directs the instruction of firemen in proper firing. These officials stated that close attention is being given to proper firing so as to produce a minimum of smoke. If necessary, they will employ additional Instructors to see that the firemen observe the rules of correct firing. "Your committee found that James B. Bailey, general manager, and George R. Bentley, superintendent, of the Central, Iron and Steel Company, are testing a smoke - consuming device which so far is not successful. They are also giving closer attention to methods of firing. Two boilers of 250 horsepower are being added so as to relieve their otner Doners mat are now taxed to the utmost. This addition will reduce much of the smoke. J. If. Patton, president, and Wil liam T. Hi'.drup, Jr., treasurer, of the Harrisburg Pipe and Pine Bending Works, are about to add 600 horsepower to their battery of boilers, thereby cutting down the smoke they produce. They are also trying an automatic stoker which assists In keeping the smoke production to a lower point than ordinary firing will permit. They are trying various methods of hand firing In search of relief from smoke. "All of the concerns written to assure us of their hearty support. "Your committee has arranged with Frederick W. Cohen, chairman of the lecture committee of the Engineers' Club of Central Pennsylvania, to get Professor Kent, doan of Syracuse I'niversity, the expert employed by the Anti - Smoke League of New York City, to deliver a lecture in Harrisburg on the causes and remedies for excessive smoke. Other eminent experts will also be secured to lecture. "The executives of the various railroads and mills and the men who do the firing will be invited to these lectures. Besides giving remedies for smoke, thes experts will present figures showing the money that has been saved by careful firing." President William Jennings com pllmented the committee for its good work and said: "It is further evidence that the board is working to bring about a relief from this great evil. The committee is doing things the right way and should be encouraged in tho work. My acquaintance with the various manufactures has Impressed me with their desire to help and they will all be in line when there Is a practical system shown. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company deserves much credit for Its efforts. The abatement of the smoke nuisanre Is a hobby of mine and I believe that smoke In damaging quantities will soon be a thing of the past." Ilnilroad Men Spenk. """" r:. rr": : r. r v - H. Smiin. 01 me 1 - niiaoeipniH umsion j of the Pennsylvania Railroad, said t he could not add much except that: ..t .i, ,i ,, Her iia uitr iic.iu in uie - u 1 ' wnicn some enori mun ne in. me iu stop the Finoke nuisance he was satisfied that tho Pennsylvania Railroad Company Is doing everything possible to bring about better conditions. Assistant Road Foreman of Engines W. R StelumetT!, of the Philadelphia division, whone work is In the local yards, right where the nuisance is most prevalent, and who has had 37 years' experience with firemen, engineers and engines, gave some interesting facts and much encouragement. Mr. Stelnmetz referred to his work, which brought him in contact with the men each day, and he said: "I know that every man who works on an engine is doing his best to prevent unnecessary smoke. Already there has been a decrease and the men are willing to do anything to help stop the nuisaneq. The or der issued recently regarding the work of the firemen and engineers Is being carried out to the letter. 1 am satisfied that since the Pennsylvania Railroad Company has taken a hand there has been a very satisfactory .reduction of smoke, and it will continue, for everybody is working hand in hand along this line." President Jennings took occasion to compliment Mr. Steinmetz on his interesting statement and encourag ing words and added: "I know tho company is doing everything," William Denehey, chief clerk to Superintendent McCaleb, inquired about the various manufacturers and said he knew that extra efforts were being made by the Pennsylvania Company to abate the nuisance. Trying To Koluee Smoke. W. P. Starkey, assistant genera! superintendent of the Harrisburg Pipe and Pipe Bending Company, said: "We're making plenty of smoke at the pipe works, and we know it; we are considering the matter continu ally and are trying to reduce the smoke. We think that we have suc ceeded in great part by using auto matic stokers. Some of our smoke may result from the continual forc ing of our boilers. Six months ago we added COO horsepower to help with the increased work necessary. but that is not sufficient and now we are about to add GOO horsepower ad ditional. We don't like smoke con sumers; were afraid of them; but we like the patent stokers." Mr. Starkey further said that it cannot be told how greatly the auto matic stokers have reduced the smoke, because they are under the same stark with boilers fed in the old way; it is certain, however, that the volume of smoke has been greatly reduced and the company hopes shortly to reduce it to a point where it will be unnoticed. The following were elected to membership: Allan S. Graham, assistant superintendent of the Harrisburg Gas Company; Richard V. Pago, Jr., auditor American Union Telegraph Company. The following were proposed for membership: Dick Olewine. manager New York Life Insurance Company Wolf Freidman and Max Williams, dealers In iron and steel, and Valentine Lome Williams, student.

"Ben - Hur" has made the greatest triumph ever known In the theatre. From the moment when the curtain rises on the Impressive tableau of the Star of Bethlehem to the final scene when, amid a burst, of triumphal music almost too inspired for the human ear to bear, the drama ends, the action moves with a sweep that reaches its culmination in the great race scene, the most marvelous mechanical invention ever shown on the stage. The play appeals to all classes and all kinds of people. The regular theatre - goer is thrilled by the realism of its storm at sea nnd interested ia the story of love which runs through the play, and the religious are inspired and overpowered by the reverence and wonderment of the subtle influence of Jesus which pervades every line and srene of the drama. Even more this season than ever before Klaw & Erlanger have given the production more care and more splendor and have engaged an excellent cast, some of whom and the parts they portray are: Characters in the Prelude Bal - thasar, the Egyptian, Alfred Hol - lingsworth; Caspar, tho Greek, Chas.

Nellie, the charming heroine, as Mr. Davis portreys her, is a simple, natural creation, who acts and looks hs a real flesh and blood girl would do. The other characters nre drawn with great skill, especially that of Gabriel Farley, the Life Saver, Nellie's devoted, but hopeless lover. His faith In the girl he loves never falters, and It Is in a great measure due to his unselfish devotion that the trials of the hero and heroine are brought to a happy con - summat bn. A. H. Woods, who has this production In charge Is too well known for the excellence of his staging to allow of the slightest doubt as to the accuracy and beauty of the stage pictures he presents. In this Instnnce, he has been at considerable personal effort, as well as great expense, In order to render It perfect In every detnll.

There is nothing sensational about "Tho Lion and the Mouse" the successful drama of American, political and social life which Henry B. Harris will present at the Lyceum Theatre, for a three nights engagement beginning Thursday evening, September 12th, except the tremendous popularity which the play achieved on the night of tho opening performance and which lius since grown in volume until it has reached all parts of this country. The drama was written by Charles Klein, nuthory of The Music Master which has made David Wartleld the leading character of this company. "The Lion and tho .Mouse" was seen in Harrisliurg last season for four performances breaking nil records In the history of the Lyceum Theatre. Indications are that the records will again bo broken this season for thff open sale yesterdny was large and th( demand continued all day. HEX III It, In General Lew Wallace's romance of "Ben - Hur," the seat sale for which opens tomorrow morninjr, the tremendous betting that precedes the famout chariot race nt the Circus at Antiocli between Ben - Hur and his Roman Rival, Messala, seems to be almost Incredibly heavy. The records of ancient limes clearly reveal, however, that such enormous laying of odds and risking of - whole fortunes upon the outcome of a single race was by no means the ex - ceptlon to the rule but almost tho rum itself. The sensational chariot race o. - tween Ben - Hur, the young Jewish prince, his daring, if wicked Roman rival, and the other contestants, presents, indeed, a signal illustration of the excessive extreme to which ih - i Unmans carried their thirst for the fierce pleasures of the race course, with its accompanlng extravagance oi high betting. The production this sen - son is one of surpassing beauty and on an unparalleled scale of scenic grand - , cur. The cast is one of great strength and exec lence. including - Thurston Hull as Ben - Hur; Wilmer L. Walter us Messala; Henry Weaver us Simniiides; William Leyden as Sheik Itdcrim; Alfred llollincsworth as Arrius and Hal - thasnr; Charles Canhebi as Hortator; I Daniel K. Hanhui as Sanbullat; Helen !
