Governor Will Parole
Mrs. Kersch Soon
uovernor itnycombe will grant a
parole to Carrie Kersh within 30 days,
as recommended at the last meeting of
the parole board. Mrs. Kersh has served
five and a half years for manslaughter.
She- entered the penitentiary April 25,
"I am influenced not only by the
recommendation of the parole board,"
paid the governor, "but especially by
Mrs. Kersh 's action yesterday when her
warning, given at the risk of her life,
thwarted Tunnel's plan to escape Irom
the prison. I have hesitated greatly to
grant leniency in such a case as the one
involved, but it does now seem that Mrs.
Kersh deserves a chance. She has learn
ed n bitter lesson.''
The parole, the governor stated,
would be held -up pending the return
from the enst of Major Jessie Htark, of
the Salvation Army. By mutual reauest
it has been arranged for Mrs. Kersh to
jlive with Major Stark. The conditions
j of her parole will bo made very strict,
u uiui ui uny lime n uer eomiuci is
not entirely satisfactory, she will be re
turned promptly to the prison.
SEASON FOR CAB SHORTAGE I

closing down. ' ; .
The railroads arc run for profit in-,
stead of the public therefore, to in-1
crease already fat profits on watered

an annual toll of decrepit rolling stock
an annual loss in wrecked cars.
According to Railway Age llazette,
the railroads built annually 140,001)
freight can in tho five years from 1910
to 1914, inclusive. This, then, is the
number of new cars required annually
to keep np with trattic conditions.
In 1915 the railroads cut their car
orders nearly one half ordering only
In 1910, thus far, they have only or
dered 00,000 cars. Is it any wonder the
railroads cannot get cars?
That is why there is a shortage of
