Drs, Martin, Posey, Hirst,
Deaver and Ashton Sup
port Nominee for His Work
in Behalf of Public Health.
Five Philadelphia medical men of na
tional reputation have enlisted In the
campaign for the election of Dr. Martin
G. Brumbaugh to the Governorship. They
have sent letters to many hundreds of
ihylclnns and surgeons throughout the
city urging them to support the eminent
The men who have signed the com
munication are Dr. Kdwnrd Martin, pro
feisor of genlto-tlrlnary surgery at the
t'nlverslty of Pennsylvania and n mem
ber of the Board of Education; Dr. Wil
liam Campbell Toscy, famous eyo special
ist; Dr. Barton Cooke Hirst, who occu
pies the chair of obstrctrlcs In the Uni
versity of Pennsylvania! Dr. John II.
Deaver, noted surgeon; Dr. W. E. Ash
ton, specialist In genllo-urlnary diseases
and n member of tho faculty of Medico
Chlrurglcal College.
Doctor Martin, one of the superintend
ent's most earnest supporters In the
rchool board, declared that' ho and his
collcngues took this action in accordanco
with what they considered a profes
sional duty. With no thought of politi
cal nctlvlty they were unanimous In tho
belief thnt Doctor Brumbaugh would en
thusiastically 'support legislation making
for the betterment of public health. His
successful efforts to promote medical In
spection In tho public schools and pro
cure more sanitary conditions In the
classrooms entitled him, ho said, to tho
support of tho medical world.
"As Superintendent of Schools," he con
tinued, "ho co-operated In every posalblo
way with tho medical profession. Instead
of lending passive acquiescence he gave
active and stimulating help. Ho worked
lrtuously to obtain legislation that would
bo of physical benefit to American child
hood. He was ccrtnlnly a moBt potent
factor In Introducing medical Inspection
Into the clnssroom nnd he has always
shown a spirit of-puro patriotism In dis
charging his otllclal duties.
"To his credit. It must bo said, he al
ways remained aloof from political
affairs of any kind. Ho entered freely,
however, Into all movements for the ben
efit of the school children and tho Phila
delphia public at largo."
Doctor Martin refused to mako any di
rect reply to the often-refuted charge of
Vance C. McCormick thnt Doctor Brum
baugh had" not taken part In organized
attempts at public betterment. "I will
stato the facta concerning Doctor Brum
baugh," he said, "but will not discuss
tho situation from a political standpoint."
Beneficiary of Eccentric Millionaire
Again Examined.
When the hearing In tho controversy
over the will of John G. Watmough,
millionaire, who disinherited his rela
tives and left his fortune to domestics
nnd friends, was resumed before Judge
Lamorelle today in tho Orphans' Court,
William Clark Mason, representing tho
contesting kin, called for cross-examination
Ferdinand Keller, dealer In an
tiques, who, with his wife, are bene
ficiaries uf the residue of tho estate.
Following the sensation sprung yes
terday to the offect that Jules Maujcan,
Btar witness for the contestants, con
fessed In letters to tho Kellers that he
had committed perjury at tho Register's
hearing, counsel for the relatives en
deavored to explain the affair to the
The purport of the Buckman testi
mony was that Maujean, who had been
a Janitor for the Kellers for a number
of years, had only consented to testify
for the contestants upon the promise of
K00O or $10,000, to be pnld him provid
ing the will was knocked out.
Ho made his "confession," according
to tho testimony, after he hod become
conscious-stricken, and wrote two letters
to the Kellers repudiating his testimony
before the Register.
Ab a counter accusation, counsel for
the contestants sought to prove that
Jules' remorse and admissions of per
jury were superinduced by the bene
ficiaries or their representatives, nnd
that he was to receive J100O to skip the
Mrs, Eloise Hughes Smith nnd B. W.
Daniel Married.
Philadelphia society was .surprised to
day to learn that Robert W. Daniel and
Mrs. Eloise Hughes Smith, daughter of
Congressman and Mrs. James A. Hughes,
of West Virginia, had been married in
Now York. August 18. Mr. and Mrs.
Daniel are staying at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. L Waring Wilson, at Rosemont,
until their own dwelling In the same
suburb Is ready for occupancy.
Announcement of the marriage was de
layed because Mr. Daniel had to leave
for Europe on August 20 and did not wish
to take his bride Into the war tone. Their
acquaintanceship began on the rescue
ship Carpathla after tho sinking of the
Titanic In 1315. Mrs, Smith was return
ing from her honeymoon with her llrst
husband, Luclan Smith, of Unlontown.
Pa., who lost his life In the disaster. Mr.
Daniel dived oft the Titanic after the ex
plosion and was Anally picked up by i
life boat.
Mr. and Mrs. Daniel were married In
the "Little Church Around the Corner"
In New Tork.
Bwarthmore Debates Whether
"Phoenix" Shall Print Such Matter.
Tobacco advertisements or no tobacco
idvertlsements Jn the Phoenix, the stu
dent newspaper of Swarthmore College,
l a question being debated by the stu
dents and alumni of the Institution. The
business department of the publication,
realizing a profitable Income could be
derived by publishing the advertisements
of the tobacco companies, has advocated
uch matter be admitted to the columns
of the paper after a 14 years' record of
intl-nlcotine policies.
Women of the student body and the
alumni stanchly oppose the proposition,
while the men believe since they use
the tobacco, they should be Informed
through the columns of their "dally" as
to the advisability of smoking partic

American's Splendid Singing With
New York Symphony.
There were honors aplenty at the con
cert last night given by Walter Dam
rosch's New York Symphony Orchestra,
at the Academy of Music, but, except for
a very few moments, tho honors all went
to Rlccnrdo Martin for the splendid
Interpretation of his atlas, The orches
tral part of tho evening' entertainment
was wretchedly done for the most part,
conductor and men alike transgressing In
spirit and execution.
It Is n great pity that Mr. Dnmrosch
chose to play the Erolca symphony here
fur his first time. Eventually his orches
tra may rise to Beethoven; nt present
their attempts were almost Insulting, Both
to the master whom they played and to
tho audience which heard them. That
the first movement was Inchoate, failed
utterly of a. unity of Impression, Is per
haps pardonable, but that Mr. Dftmrosch
should have muddled tho funeral march,
nnd, after robbing It of Its splendid
solemnity, should have gone on to mako
the scherzo weak nnd uninspiring, Is little
Bhort of criminal. The scherzo of tho
Erolca Is a mad piece of Impudence,
placed after the sober but fearless death
motive.'' Mr. Damrosch conducted both
bb If they were pieces of music, nothing
In tho last movement, nnd In picking
tho bits of Inspired ragtime hero and there
In the preceding movements, Mr. Dam
rosch was better, but that Is very little
to say. Tho lack of Inspiration, of Judg
ment and of technical excellence must
be overcome, nnd If tho now endowment
of Mr. Damrosch'B orchestra will accom
plish this, It will mako his future vlBlts
to this city a different matter from tho
present one. H should bo Bald, to be
fair, that tho Goldmark overture and
Ernesco's "Roumnnlna Rhapsody," which
opened and closed the program respective
ly, were much better aono, witn noi a
little fire and good cheer, and that In
them Mr. Damrosch's prodigious efforts
In conducting did not seem so ludicrously
Mr. Martin, In the midst of this mud
dle, was a bright stream of Joy. His
voice was cordially rounded, his tones
pure and rich, and his dramatic expres
sion so excellent that It reminded one of
Tltta Ruffo. To say thnt his singing wns
"Intelligent" would not bo adequate. Mr.
Martin's sympathetic Imagination, as
shown last night, was perfect, nnd tho
contrast he could mako between Puccini
nnd Bizet wns full of artistic righteous
ness. For him, nt least, Philadelphia can
be thankful to Mr. Damrosch.

There has been some talk concerning
the establishment of the American
Power Boat Association In this city and
taking It away from New York. But
for the betterment of the racing game
the members of the South Jersey clubs
will try to keep the mother organiza
tion In Now York. One of the reasons
advanced Is thnt tho Long Island Yacht
Racing Association, which Is a big or
ganization, contemplates Joining the A.

Merchants and Manufactur
ers Open Campaign to Give
Industries a Great Push
"Made in Philadelphia!"
These three words, pocked with mean
ing, were the threo best arguments of
tho merchants and manufacturers of the
city yesterday tho first day of tho week
thnt Is to be given over to the business
of convincing the public that Philadel
phia Is one of the real workshops of the
And, Judging from tho display put
forth, they are a challenge calculated to
make the business men of every other
place In the world sit up and take notice.
Much thnt Is fine Is made In Philadel
phia, but In tho opinion of Phlladelpha'a
enterprising men of bUBness, Just know
ing that fact doesn't help the city much.
"It pays to advertise," they say, and
therefore this Is to be advertising week
for nil the city's products.
All hands have Joined in tho movement
to spread the fame of tho Industrial out
put, and the consequence Is that it will
be an unobservant pedestrian Indeed who
can walk half a block In any of the busi
ness districts this week without having
the merits of some Philadelphia-made ar
ticle brought to his attention.
From City Hall down to the smallest
retail shop, the city's colors havo been
fiung out In honor of "Made In Phila
delphia Week." Tho department stores
havo their windows dressed with mer
chandise from local factories, nnd the up-to-the-minute
smartness of the displays
mako the hallowed marks "Made In
Paris" or "Made In London" lose their
cherished significance.
Fifth avenue, the Rue de la Palx and
Bond street "have nothing on" Walnut,
Chestnut and Market streets.
According to those who are back of the
campaign, people do not know how
versatile their home city is, industrially
speaking. They do not know that every
thing from a locomotive to a doll-baby Is
made hero. How then can they expect
the world to know it?
"Mado in Philadelphia Week" is destined
to bring this fact to their notice, but It
is not the Intention of merchants and
manufacturers to let them forget It after
the week is over. Boosting Philadelphia's
Industries, say they, is not to be a tem
porary affair; nor Is it designed to stimu
late home patronage alone.
"Philadelphia goods, not only for Phlla
delphlans, but for the whole world," is
the slogan.

the present campaign In Pennsylvania.
"Penrose has nfllrmed," he said, "that
the vital Issues In this cnmpalgn wero
tho tariff and the Mexican problem. There
Is no longer a Mexican problem, thanks to
our President, and as for the tariff why
the war In Europe hns built ns high a
tariff wall around tho United States as
tho great wall In China. No goods are
Imported and consequently our goods need
no protection. The quarrel about tariff
ratee Is out of date. Any Republican who
wants a prohibitive tariff has one right
now In this war."

"Acid-Mouth" is the teeth's
greatest mischief-maker.
People wonder why it
causes so much decay yet
they can't see it. But you can

to prevent doubtless would
not now disfigure your teeth
