Philadelphia's Select and Common
Councils and other officials of the
Quaker City who are accompanying: the

them over Hillside Parkway, Portland

SYSTEM TO BE REVISED
Amendments Affecting Efficiency
Ratings Being Prepared.
The city's efficiency system, which
has been the cause of so much trouble
at the City Hall during the past year,
will be revised. Commissioner Daly,
who once before attempted to have
the system abolished as a failure, is
at work on amendments to change the
procedure. He says it may bo possible
to work out a system which will bo
of some benefit arid will avoid bad fea
tures of the present system.
The changes to be recommended have
not all been worked out yet, but it
is said 'that they will be extensive. Mr.
Daly refuses at present to operate his
department under the system, having
ignored it since his recent attempt at
SPIRIT OF PATRIOTISM
INSPIRES BELL PARTY
Members of Escort Find Enthusiasm Along Route bo Great That Sleep Is
Practically Unknown Since Departure From Philadelphia;
THIS detail of traveling as a mem
ber of the Liberty Bell escort
isn't one continuous pleasant sen
sation after all, as some people seem
to think it Is.
It's pleasant all right, if you don't
care about your sleep. No one gets to
sleep much on the trip, but, outside
of that, everything is just lovely.
People have no respect for time
when it comes to paying respect to the
precious old bell. Regardless of
whether it is day or night, they aro out
in force young and old, big and little,
native Americans and naturalized citi
zens, all moved by the same patriotic
Ho the Philadelphians who are in the
official party have had little chance
for a good, square night's sleep since
they left home nearly two weeks ago.
"I never saw such enthusiasm," Bald
Dr. John H Lock, a member of the
Common Council, who is in the official
"Every station has given the bell a
great reception, no matter what time
of the day. or night we passed through,
and no matter whether we stopped or
"Some of tho most out-of-the-way
stations, with only two or three houses
and a blacksmith shop, have turned
out some of the biggest crowds and
always a band. It's the bands that
keep us from sleeping. By the time
we get to going good at night wo hit
a little unimportant place and are
greeted by a cheering crowd and a
band. Even when the train doesn't
stop the band is on the job. Tou can
imagine about how much sleep we get.
None In Party Complain.
"Yet no one in our party Is com
plaining. We all realize that tho peo
ple want to see the bell dearly, and
that many of them will have little
other opportunity of seeing it. When
we get to San Francisco we may bo
able to get a little sleep."
Further Interruptions to slumber are
promised tonight, when the train is
scheduled to stop for ten minutes at
Medford at 2 o'clock In the morning.
Medford promises to have a big crowd
out. Ashland, too, gets a stop of about
20 minutes at 3 o'clock this morning.
A canopy of electric lights is fixed
over the bell. The lights beam all
night, so people can see the bell
whether the train stops or not.
"I have been on five other of the
seven trips taken by tho Liberty Bell
in recent years, and there Is no doubt
but that more Interest and more
patriotism is being shown on this trip
than ever before," said William H. Fel
ton, secretary of Common Council of
Philadelphia, who was with tho offi
cial party yesterday.
''It might be claimed that the reason
for tho greater display is that the bell
has become better known, or that there
is greater patriotism now on account
of the war, but I believe that the secret
of the whole thing is the Western
Children's Parade Is Praised.
"I went with tho bell to Chicago, to
St. Louis, to Atlanta, to Boston and to

For a moment yesterday morning, as
the crowd swayed uneasily about the
Liberty Bell, all struggling to get a
close view, the sun burst through a
rift pf clouds and cast a golden halo
about the emblem of freedom.
"Hooray!" shouted the crowd.
And tho sun timidly hid Its face
Lost: One blue and green turban.
In the wake of the crowd that surged
past the Liberty Bell yesterday morn
ing, was left a woman's hat. It was
small, of turban style, with a color
ing of blue and green, and a, black
velvet ribbon trailing behind. Specu
lation was rife as to the reason the
hat was left.
Did the woman lose her headgear in
a mad fight for position near tho Bell?
Or, did she doff her hat. intentionally,
and cast it in front of tho emblem In
Tho last seen of the bedraggled and
dusty little hat it decked tho top of a
flagpole on the car bearing the Bell,
and was traveling fast toward San
Portland's entire police force was
on the job yesterday. Day, first and
second night reliefs were out in force,
with Captains Moore, Inskeep and Cir
cle in charge.
To handle tho throng about the car
upon which tho Liberty Bell was being
displayed, 30 policemen were detailed
to the one block on Fourth street, be
tween Salmon and Main. These were
under the personal directloriof Police
Crowds were orderly and no diffi
culty was experienced In handling
them, though the congestion on Fourth
street was great.
Arrangements were made by the
Portland committee for baths for such
members of the Philadelphia official
party as might want baths during the
Portland stop. It had been anticipated
that possibly three or four of tho party
might want baths. When tho train
arrived It was learned that every
member of the party wanted a bath.
Instead of using bathtubs, the bunch
was taken' direct to the Multnomah
Club for a swim.
At the Union Depot, just before the
Bell train departed, a.little Japanese
girl scrambled onto the Bell platform
and stood for several minutes fondling
the Bell and smiling with enthusiasm.
Mayor Albee got the best souvenir
of the Bell's visit. Early in tho day
he secured a copy of a souvenir book
let being distributed and had every
member of the Philadelphia official
party sign up. Ho got the only sou
venir of this kind:
There was a gap between the mili
tary division of the parade and the
children's part when the procession
reached, tho reviewing stand where
the visting officials ' were stationed.
City Commissioner Baker got a hand
ful of the Liberty Bell badges and the
visitors were entertained by watching
a crowd of children scramble on the
street for the badges.
The clear, tintinnabulations, of a
bell near the tall end of the parade
yesterday morning, causing many peo
ple to think that a miracle had been
wrought, that the old bell of liberty
had been repaired and that its inspir
ing notes once more were proclaiming
freedom as in the days when the Colo
nists were struggling for their inde
pendence from the British.
But tho source of tho sound was only
an attractive rart of the parade it
self a brass, bell borne upon the
shoulders of two members of McElroy's
Charleston five distinct trips and I
know that the celebrations being held
everywhere this time excel anything I
saw on those trips."
"Great!" shouted Louis Hutt, acting
chairman of the committee on the bell
trip of the Philadelphia councils, as
the children's parade passed by the re
viewing stand. "That's great! Look
at those children! Did you ever see
anything to beat that! Look at that
After it was all over, Mr. Hutt de
clared that that was the best demon
stration he has seen. "Thete has been
nothing to equal it anywhere." ho as
Robert Smith, a Councilman of Phila
delphia, says it is wonderful the way
people are turning out to see the bell.
"Towns having a population of 400 or
500 are at tho depot with 1000 or 1308
people," he said. "They come from all
neighboring villages. And then they
say there is a lack of patriotism in our
country. If there is. it surely isn't in
Many Town. Iteqatdi Denied.
"If anybody thinks there Is any lack
of interest in the .Liberty Bell, they
should take a look at the letters and
telegrams we have received from vari
ous cities asking to Bee tho bell." said
Bernard J. McGuigan. "Small towns
send letters and telegrams begging us
to stop for only a few minutes. But
we are at the mercy of the railroads
and wo have to turn them down. We
always go out and wave to the towns
as we pass through, even if we cannot
John If Burton, sunerlntenrient rt
the city shops in the bureau of water
at Philadelphia, is the mechanic in im
mediate charge of the bell.. He in
spects the car every day and maintains
a constant vigilance over the relic it
self to see whether tho crack is ex
tending up Into the rim any farther.
The bell Is carefully suspended from
an elastic frame, and the motion of the
trip, says Mr. Burton, has not en
larged tho historic fissure in its side.
Reverence for Helle Shown.
"I have been touched deeply by the
reverence displayed by the people for
the bell. Souvenir hunters have not
tried to molest it in the least, as some
Philadelphians said they might."
Mr. Burton says that the boys who
struck the bell with a stone as the
train was passing from Pendleton to
Walla Walla, the other day, were not
vandals, but probably some excited and
enthusiastic youngsters who were un
able to see it at one of its regular stops
and who calculated, perhaps, that to
strike it with a stone was tho next
best thing to touching it.
II. Y. Darnall, passenger agent for
tho Pennsylvania Railroad system at
Philadelphia, has charge of the train
and of the details for the trip. Mr.
Darnall has served the railroad on two
similar excursions when the bell was
taken to Boston for the Bunker Hill
celebration in 1903 and when It was
taken to the world's fair at St. Louis

Ten blind persons "saw" the Liberty
Bell yesterday as guests of Mayor
Albee. The 10 who-were invited, with
other blind persons, to feel tho bell
reported at the City Hall at 9 A. M.
and were taken to the relic by Police
Lieutenant Harms and Sergeant Rob

Their husband and father is Major

A big bouquet of roses via dropped
onto tho bell car early In the morning.
To It was attached an envelope, upon
which was Inscribed:
"Grand old Liberty BelL We are
loyal to tho story of 1776 Ellsworth

Inside the envelope was a card which

task was accomplished on time, and
no one was hurt.
