PROVIDENCE, n. I., Jan. 6. With
tho Republicans In control, tho General
Assembly convened hero today. On Joint
ballot tho Republicans outnumber tho
Democrats' by a majority of 100 votes.
Governor It. Livingston Beeckman, In
opening the session, urged that the
women of Bhode Island be granted suf
frage at once.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 6.-Senator John
D. Works, of California, denounced the
Public Health Service as ft tool used to
enrry out tho mandates of the American
Medical Association In the benato today.
Ho likened what ho declared to bo an
underhand nttempt by tho Government
to suppress the practice of Christian Sci
ence to the persecution of Christ and the
stoning of Stephen for healing.
Senator Works charged that tho Public
Health Scrvlco was given ovor without
question to the allopathic school of mod
Iclne to tho absolute exclusion of nil
other modes of healing; that the sur
geon general wns "clothed with despotic
and autocratic power not exceeded by
that of tho general of an army In time
of martial law," nna that tho Govern
ment had usurped the constitutional lib
erties of Individuals.
"Christian Scientists havo no monop
oly of divine healing," declared Senator
Works. "Jesus of Nazareth practiced
It centuries ago. In Hla great work of
healing He resorted to neither drugs nor
tho surgeon's knife, neither did Ho rec
ommend or rccognlzo any such remedies.
"Jesus, -who taught and practised this
method of lhcallng, was persecuted, Im
prisoned nnd finally crucified. His dis
ciples, following In HIb footsteps, met ft
like fate. The men nnd women of today
who aro conscientiously trying to carry
out His Injunctions to heal the sick aro
persecuted and Imprisoned as He and His
disciples were persecuted and Imprisoned.
"If they wore hero today doing tho
work of healing as they aid then, they
would bo subject to fine and Imprison
ment under the laws of some of the
States. They would .have been held crim
inals under the laws of still other States
If they had healed the sick without Urst"
procuring a license 'rroni an examining
board of doctors.
"In tho ondcavor to preserve tho pub
lic health wo havo given tho Surgeon
General and his subordinates almost un
limited powers. If contagion Is feared
tho Surgeon General Is clothed with or
assumes despotic and autocratic power.
He represents for tho time being the
enormous and unrestrained police power
of tho Government. We havo given this
vast power over the lives and habits of
our people to ono public official, and the
people are compelled to submit to his
"As it Is now governed tho Public
Health Service Is an auxiliary of the
American Medical Association, and, of
course, Is biased, narrow and unjust Tho
Government Bhould 'see to It that the
service Is removed from any such In
fluence and mado the unbiased and hon
est searcher for the best that can be
found as a means of preventing disease
and preserving tho public health."

Governor nnd the business of tho session
begun with tho newly chosen Stato Execu

BfiUMBAUGH'S POWER COMPLETE.
Governor-elect Brumbaugh's domina
tion of the situation makes tho session
one of tho most important held jn many
years. Legislation such as local option,
workmen's compensation, employers'
liability, child labor, Philadelphia port
development and civil Bervlcc, to all of
which Doctor Brumbaugh pledged him
self during his ct-mpalgn and which fre
quently Blnco his election he has an
nounced his purpose to light for, will bo
considered, and should bo passed. If tho
Republican bosses who have dominated
former Legislatures continue to feel tho
lash ot his whip as they felt it in the
His complete control of tho situation
was demonstrated last night, when, after
every Republican member of tho House
had declared himself for Charles A. Am
bler, of Montgomery County, for Speaker,
the Republican members of the Senate
agreed to hold up ratification of every
one of Governor Tener's recess appoint
ments. Including that of Walter (H.
Galther as a member of the Public Serv
ice Commission, until after he becomes
Senator James P. McNIchol. whose ex
act attitude In regard to the Governor
elect was In doubt until the Republican
Senators met In caucus at 9 o'clock last
night, showed tho extent of Doctor Brum
baugh's power over the Incoming Legis
lature when he fell Into line with the
Vares and Introduced and assisted In
passing In that caucus a resolution which
provided that nothing but matters per
taining to the organization of the new
Senate be considered today. Tener's re
cess appointments were expected to come
before the Senate today for ratification.
' TENER IN POLITICAL ECLIPSE.
Among many of the legislators who
served two years ago, there was a feeling
of sympathy today for the retiring Gov
ernor. He Is considered of so little conse
quence by the leaders who placed him In
the Governor's chair, that they have de
serted him in his last hour appointments,
and he Is retiring without any knowledge
that he will bo granted the last requests
he has made. He has been "thrown
pyer,'.' In other words, for his successor,
Even the talk of the reappointment of
Robert McAfee as Secretary of the Com
monwealth has dwindled to almost
nothing today. When the Allegheny
County delegation met In caucus yester
day It was noticed that McAfee did not
control a solitary vote In the entire del
egation, and tha word quickly went
around that, in view of the failure of the
TJllver-MoAfee faction In the last elec
tion, he could' be ot no use to any of
the Republican1 leaders, including the
present dominating leader, Doctor Brum
baugh. This was given as one reason
for tho failure of Governor Tener to
name him for the vacancy on the Pub
lic Service Commission,
Governor Tenec comment this morning
on the decision of the Senate caucus to
hold up his recent nomination's Indicated
that th'e was disappointed, "I don't cere
what the Senators do," ho said, adding
thAt he had no apologies to give or ex
cuse to make for any of tits appoint,
ments. No Intimation had coma to him,
he declared, that hi selections for the
PuBltj Service -Conrmlselon or for any
other offlca were displeasing to the Re
publican leaders. He mentioned Mr.
Galther hy name, as one Whose fitness
for a place on the commission commended
itself to hi judgment, and aaJ4 It was
not posilbja for any roan named for a re
sponsible position to escavs criticism.

LIQUOR INTERESTS BEATEN.
After Governor-elect Brumbaugh so
overwhelmingly defeated tho Pcnrose
McNichol faction of tho Republican party
and tho liquor interests In tho speaker
ship fight, by forcing the Republican
caucus to nominate Ambler unanimously
last night, political discussion today cen
tres around the session, which opened at
The liquor interests wero beaten so
badly by Doctor Brumbaugh In their first
skirmish that members and Senators are
almost unanimously agreed that these In
terests will havo the question brought up
at tho earliest possible moment. The
party leaders also wnnt the question dis
posed of ns soon as possible, so that the
principal danger of friction with Gover
nor Brumbaugh can be passed at once.
HARD FIGHT ON LOCAL OPTION,
A hard right over local option Is now
expected to develop In both branches of
the Assembly. The liquor Interests spent
(11,000,000 during tha campaign to elect
their cantlldntes, and will want to get
the best possible return for this money.
The bill wilt most probably be Introduced
In the House, nnd plans arc already be
ing discussed to oppose it bitterly on the
floor of the lower body when It Is re
ported out of committee. The liquor men
aro taking no chances on tho Senate, now
that Senator McNIchol has shown a dis
position to "go along" with the Governor
elect, and want to dispose of the ques
tion nt once.
The real test of strength between Gov
ernor Brumbaugh nnd the Legislature
will come over the local option question.
But whether he wins or loses that 'flght
nnd he has a good chance to win only
harmony Is expected to exist for the rest
of tho session. The Republican leaders
have pledged themselves to put through
adequate workmen's compensation, child
labor nnd employers' liability laws.
CAUCUSES WITHOUT RIPPLE.
The caucuses last night ran as smooth
ly as they ever did before tho revolt
against machine leadership In 1913. The
Houso. Republicans unanimously nomi
nated Charles A. Ambler for Speaker
upon motion of "Dirt Road" Edward E.
Jones, of Susquehanna County. Repre
sentatives Baldwin, of Delaware; Wil
liams, of Tioga; Wilson, of Jefferson, and
Habgood, of McKean, who had withdrawn
In his favor late in tho afternoon after
tho Vares had shown their complete con
trol of tho situation for the Governor
elect, seconded the nomination.
Thomas II, Garvin was nominated for
chief clerk of the House, William 8. Lelb
for resident clerk and Frank Morrison,
of the ltth Ward in Philadelphia, for
assistant chief clerk, Morrison was slated
to succeed Willard S. Black, of Cumber
The Republican Senators In their caucus
did nothing besides sidetrack considera
tion of the Tener, recess appointments,
except formally make nominations that
were already slated. Charles H. Kline,
of Allegheny, was nominated for presi
dent pro tern., W. Harry Baker for sec
retary, Herman Kephart for chief clerk
and Herman Miller for librarian,
Representative Jones, and several of the
other men who spoke In the House
caucus, asked the members to BUpport
Governor Brumbaugh In his entire plat
form. This was the only discussion of
Issues and was conducted In a general
Nearly tho entire Republican strength
In the House attended the- caucus, 180
being present. Representative H. Atlee
Brumbaugh, of Blair, County, a cousin
of the Governor-elect, was among the
four absentees. The entire Philadelphia,
delegation was present. Congressman-at-Large-elect
John R K. 8qott and Jo
eph R. Grundy were In the room whle
the cauous was being held.
The caucus of the Philadelphia deleft
gatlon, which was to have been held, was
called off. The Vares and David H,
Lane, who had planned to Increase their
own and Doctor Brumbaugh's power by
having the delegation pledge itself to all
of the measures advocated by Dootor
Brumbaugh, decided late last night to
let matters rest as they are. This de
cision' was reached after Senator Mc
NIchol arrived here and showed that he
would ''go along."

When Burkliarut saw tho danger he
and his store were In he telephoned to
the 17th District police- sfatlon. Lieuten
ant Bennett wmvlias heard many com
plaints of rowdyism in the neighborhood,
set out hurriedly for the Btore with Spe

Policemen Jerden, Harrison, Burton and
The gang scattered when tho police tip
Deared nround the corner on Wharton

All aro under 20. They aro Frank pur

Then some tlmo during tho night Burk
hiirtlt and Llcutcnnnt Bennett "agreed to
have tho prisoners' sent to City Hal! this
morning to hnv.q; . their cases heard by
Mnglstrate Renshnw, Instead of allowing
them to nppea'r before Magistrate Brlggs,
Uho. Burkhardt feared, would deal
lightly with them.
PRISONERS ARE FINED.
Magistrate Renshaw, In tho Central
Police Court, nned Frank Cournon 112.60

When Magistrate Brlggs' reached tho
15th street and Snyder nvenuo station
this morning and held court, ho was
told there weren't any cases at, tho 17th
District Station, nnd he needn't go over
there. As a matter of fact there wero
Bevon caees at the 17th District, but It
had been arranged Brlggs should hear
none of them.
No one Interested In tho matter will
tell how the plan wns worked out or who
thought of it. Lieutenant Bennett de
clined to discuss the case. Burkhardt, tho
police say, told them ho wanted the
prisoners taken beforo Magistrate Ren
shaw because he wan suro Justlco could bo
done In Renshaw's court.
BRIGGS HINTS OF REVENGE.
Magistrate Brlggs put on a nonchalant
air when he was asked what he thought
of having missed tho six prisoners. But
mero was inreat against tho 17th DIs
trlst policemen In tho statement he made.
There was only a year more of tho
present administration, he said, and tho
police were shortsighted If they forgot
that some day they would be under an
other director. He said:
"So they're at it again are they? Well,
I'll not lose any sleep about It. So far
as I am concerned, they can go as far
ns they like with It. Thcro aro only 12
moro months of this thing to go through
with, anyhow. If tho 17th District men
feel they can get better treatment nt
Central Station and want to sjnd their
prisoners there, let them. I am through.
It doesn't bother me In the loast whether
I herir their cases or not; In fact, it only
makes my Job easier.
"It gives me a chance to sleep until 0
o'clock, Instead of getting up at 7. I nm
not surprised at anything which may
come from thnt district; they have been
at It for two months now. I don't know
any reason for It. and I don't care any
how. It wouldn't surprise mo If thlB
action were due to nnother fool order
from the nireotor's office. This trouble
had Its origin from the telltales who are
constantly running to Porter, giving him
stories In the dark that would not stand
the light of day.
"When this Administration Is out, as
It will be In a short time, these same fel
lows will bo Just as anxious to kowtow
to the new Director, nnd will be breaking
their nooks to get In right ngaln. They
hro very sliorUIghted. They seem to

Mr. Paisley said that the trouble with

The first to arrive this morning was
Henry Chubb, 1518 N,orth 24th street, a
former ship carpenter, but now one' of
"'Billy' Sunday'B' all' right, take It
from me," he said. '-'Some may consider
him amusing, but you've got to use forco
to flslit .evil these days. I am nearly 70
years old. 1 was born In Boston. With
Doctor Eliot I believe wo need o, new
kind of religion. People worship the
almighty dollar too much these days.
'Billy' Sunday, with' hi forceful, and
von at times sensational, methods can
drive the truth home. He. hits the nail
on the head,"
"I was never much ot.a dreamer," said
n business man, "but I passed the taber
nacle on the car early this morning. I
must say that the building standing mas
sive, simple and white In the morning
mlit. spoke of something almost super
natural or divine. The solitude and quiet
of the park, added, perhaps, to the
picture. To me the eight was Impressive,
I think. It a fair omen for the great work,
ot revival that Is about to begin."
"This Is not a revival of the Attest,"
eold one man as he clutched his crutches
with cold and shivering hands. "I have
been a cripple for some year, but I re
member something about the saying
'God's in His heaven and ail is well.' It
may be' that there Is a form of retribu
tion, for with a)l my misfortunes l sea
the (plrit of God more keenly .than some
others, perhaps, and meetings like these
are a great comfort to me."
