State Senator Edwin II. Vare glanced

Rumors that George II. Rarlo will bo
asked to straighten out tho widespread
financial tanglo that followed tho failure
of tho First National Bank nt Uniontown
last January were circulated today In
this city. Tho Uniontown bank was di
rected by Joslah V. Thompson, reputed
to be one of the largest owners ot coal
lands In the world, nnd tho coltapso of
tho Institution resulted In numerous other
failures and receiverships.
Tho story that Mr. Karle has been
asked to take hold of tho situation foll
owed tho arrival In this city of a repre
sentative of Mr. Thompson nnd his
associates. This man now Is in tho city,
and it Is understood that ho has been In
consultation with Mr. Barle, or that ho
will be before night.
The main difficulty In the rehabilitation
of the Thompson finances,- it has been
said, has been tho antagonism to him
by tho so-called coal trust. Mr. Thomp
son was the head of n powerful group of
Independent coal land owners, nil of
whom were affected by the falluro of his
It has been estimated that It would re
quire backing ot close to 20,000,000 to re
habilitate the bank and its allied activi
ties. Mr. Earlc, according to the reports,
has been asked to arrange for this either
by becoming receiver for the bank or
otherwise as he may see fit.
When the Thompson bank failed In
January It created a tremendous sensa
tion In financial circles. 'The bank "was"
the (list of the national group to ho put
on the Government's honor roll. It had
been looked upon as ono of the most solid
In the Country.
Various efforts at rehabilitation have
been made. A. Mitchell Palmer was In
Uniontown for a .time making efforts to
straighten things out. ns was Congress
man A. Washington Logiic, of this -city.
Numerous politicians up State are said to
have been hit by tho failure, among them
State .Senator -Crow.
No confirmation of tho rumor that Mr.
Earle had been asked to take hold could
be obtained this attcrnon. Mr. Earle was
not In his office at the Real Estate Trust
Building, but he was expected back later.
An associate of Mr. Earle admitted,
however, that a representative of Mr.
Johnson Is In tho city. He said that a
statement on the matter would be given
dut later in tho afternoon.

THE "WHY" OF BOSS RULE'S EVIL
RESULTS EXPLAINED BY ELIHU ROOT
In one of the most remarkable addreetet aver delivered before a
political body in the United State, Elihu Root, in the fulne of hi
intellectual power and ripened by an unrivaled experience in government,
municipal, State and national, yesterday before the New York Consti
tutional Convention, attacked "invisible government" and urged a return
to the people of the power vetted in them by the bravery and sacrifice
of their ancestors.
Hi word are not only filled with warning to hi own State and to
the nation, but they are of particular importance to Philadelphia at
thi time, when bossism and "invisible government" in their wont form
are engaged in a deiperate effort to recover control of the city and it
Among hi most striking utterance Were the following:
"They call the system don't coin the phrase, I adopt it, because
it carrie it own meaning the system they call 'invisible government.'
For I don't remember how many yean, Mr, Conkling wa the supreme
ruler in this State the Governor did not count, Legitlature did not
count Comptroller and Secretarie of State and what not did not count.
It Wat, what Mr. Conkling said, and in a great outburst of public rage he
Wa pulled, down,
"When Mr, Piatt ruled he State nigh onto twenty year he
ruled it it Wa not the Governor, it Wa not the Legitlature, it wa not
any elected officer, it wa Mr. Piatt. And the Capitol wa not here it
wa at 49 Broadway, where Mr. Piatt and hi lieutenant held forth,
"It make no difference what name you give, whether you call it
fenton or Conkling or Cornell or Arthur or Piatt, or by the name 'of
men now living. The ruler of the State during the greater part of the
forty year of my acquaintance with the State Government ha not been
any man authorized by the Constitution or by the law, and, sir, there it
throughout the length and breadth of the Stale a deep and sullen and long
continued resentment at being governed thu by men not of .the people's
'How i it about the boss? What doe the boss have to do?
"He ha to urge the appointment of a man whoie appointment will
consolidate hi power and preserve the organization. There has been
hardly a day for- the last sixteen year when I have not seen these two
principle come in conflict, , . .
"The invisible government proceed to build up ana maintain it
power by a reversal of the fundamental principle of good government,
which i that men should be selected to perform the duties of the office,
and to substitute the idea that men should be appointed'to office for tho
preservation and enhancement of the power of thi political leader.
"The one, the true one, look upon appointment to office with a
view to the service that can be given to the public. The other, the
false one, look upon appointment to office with view ito what can be
got out of it. ... ,..,..
"While million of men are fighting and dying for their countrie
aero the ocean, while government is become serious, sober, almost
alarming in its effects upon the happiness of all that are dearest to us,
it is our inestimable privilege to do something here in moving our beloved
State along the pathway toward better mnd purer government, a mora
pervasive morality mnd a more elfective exercise of the powers of govern,
ment which preserve the liberty of the psopU."

JOHN H. FOW, LAWYER,
IN CITY ANNALS, DIES
Famous Character of Courts
and Corridors Passes Away.
Known Among His
Friends as "Ducky"
AN EXPERT ON OLD LAWS
John II. Fow, lawyer, politician, histor
ian and one of the unique personages of
tho city, died enrly today at his summer
home, at Spring Lake. N. J. His death
came ns a great shock to his friends In
Two weeks ngo Mr.ow suffered an at
tack of apoplexy, from which it was be
lieved ho had fully recovered. He was
able to mako dally trips to this city from
Spring Lake, but on Friday he becamo
seriously 111 and never rallied.
Ho is survived by his widow nnd three
sons. F. Carroll Fow, who Is in the City
Solicitor's offlce: J. Gordon Fow, In the
Electrical Bureau, and Franklin II, Fow,
who Is In school.
Tho body will bo brought to this city
as soon ns urrangements arwmade. In
terment will bo from his Philadelphia
home, probably on Thursday.
The death of Mr. Fow removes one of
tho city's most notablo characters. His
career wns somewhat stormy. A wldo
knowledge of affairs, legal, historical nnd
otherwise, often brought him into the
limelight, especially In tho courts.
In fact Mr. Fow became such a

Incomplete unless Mr. Fow emerged from
one of the doors.
Hltirulvlce was frequently sought over
odd. points -of Jaw pertaining to charters
arid methods of organization nnd he
always seemed to have an ample supply
of knowledge at his finger tips.
DRAMATIC IN COURT.
Mr. Fqw had a habit of appearing like
a bolt from a clear sky In cases with
which It wns thought he would never
have tho slightest connection. Often,
too, his blustering manner nnd positive
assertions overawed the opposing attor
ney. Practices and systems which were
thought to be highly proper wero often
proved to bo entirely . wrong, unconsti
tutional and out of order by Mr. Fow.
The details of the old blue laws, and
other legal matters which would require
research by many attorneys were Btorcd
up by Mr, Fow, ready for uso at a mo
ment's notice. He seemed to have an
Intimate acquaintance with most Judges,
no matter which party elected them, and
always to have something confidential to
talk about nt the side bar.
Mr. Fow was a great hunter and his
exploits in that sport were usually her
alded, around City Hall. He gained tho
nlcnnamo of "Ducky" because of his
marksmanship In duck shooting. Ho al-
