(Br Anoclata4 Ftom.)
Philadelphia, Sept 20. This city
is aroused by murder and riot today
in the Fifth ward known as the
"Bloody Fifth." The murder, that of
i a policeman by a man declared to be
a gunman imported from Jersey City,
I was the outcome of a bitter political
fight between two rival republican
factions for the control of the ward
which skirts the river front.
For weeks the battle has . wasred
culminating today when the primary
election was held for the naminur of
candidates. James A. Carey, holding
a prominent city office, and Isaac
! Deutsch were the opponents for the
nomination for select councilman
from the ward on the republican
ticket Early in the day Carey, while
making the rounds of the ward, was
attacked by a man alleged' to be Jacob
Mascia of Jersey City. ; He was
struck from behind with a sandbag , .
and then blackjacked. At the came:
time J. H. Maurer, an assistant dis
trict attorney, was attacked, i Police
man George A. Eppley went to their
rescue and, it is alleged,- Mascia placed
a revolver against his abdomen and
fired. Eppley died later in a hospi-
tal. On his death bed he identified
Mascia as his assailant , . f
Mascia was afrested and along with'
him John Costello, also of ' Jersey
The police questioned them for an
hour and later announced that botlw
men had confessed they were hired in
New York or Jersey City with nine
teen others and brought here yester
day to vote for Deutsch.
Mascia is charged with murder and
Coste,!lo with being an accessory to
the crime. Mascia denied that he did
the shooting. . ' -
Today's rioting was the culmination
of , trouble which began last night '
when about thirty thugs attacked the
Finletter club, the republican organi
zation headquarters in the Fifth ward,
and shot up the place. Six men were
sent to the hospital.

Price has always been a
fairly accurate index of
quality. But just now, be
cause of the headlonjr ris
ing of material costs, price
is not a true indication of
value. Fifty-one cars
have been forced to ad
vance prices 20 per cent
to 25 per cent. .
The , present supply of
Hudson Super-Sixes is
'built from materials con
tracted last year. Since
then material costs have
almost doubled. When
that supply of materials is
exhausted, then, Hudsons,
tod, must cost more. By
prompt buying you can
save the difference be
tween ,what a Hudson Super-Six'
now costs and
what it must certainly
have to ;f cost when its
price is influenced by the
present material market.
When former cheaper
cars could be bought at
$200 to $300 less than the
Super-Six, no two of them
had 1 sales , equal to those
of the Hudson. That
shows how ' popular the
Super-Six has always been
as compared to other car?.
It is easy to imagine how
much more popular it will
be now that, there is no
such price advantage. The
