It wns too cold to get up nearly. No. It Is not yet winter. It's not even autumn, but there were many persons who scrutinized the dato line on their newspaper befdro they could be convinced that tho month was still August. The weather was such that n cold plunge re quired much bravado and open trolley windows became annoying. Philadelphia doesn't want to shiver In summer. Tho weather man, erratic prophet though he be, forecast true yesterday Ito predicted that today would be cold. Everybody knows It Is. The thermometer registered CO degrees nt rising time today, and for more than two hours hovered around the same mark, giving no sign of a rise. Then, It began to climb until nt nnn ,- temperature was 68. The prospects for a few additional degrees aro bright, the Weather Bureau said. ' The normal temperature for this dato Is 70 degrees. Today's cold wave, how- ,cver. by no means breaks a record fnr this d-to In other yenrs, for only In 1912 tho mercury sank to 63 degrees. The wcuthcr here Is a result of a cold wave that Is sweeping eastward from tho Mississippi Valley and the Great Lakes. A gentle breeze moving about 13 miles an hour helped bring discomfort to summer clad Phltadelphlans.

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 bank. NEED JM.000,000. 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 treasury. 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 choosing. '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."

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 this city. 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 fnmmar-fUtire-nbotU- Clt-1Inirthat"a trip through any of tho corridors seemed 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.

Aug. 31. Not a body was found today In tho hull of tho United States submarine F-l, raised yesterday, which sunk Inst March off this port with Lieutenant Edo nnd 21 men. Neither did the naval men who raised tho diver find any record left by Lieu tenant Edo concerning the cause of tho submnrlno disaster. Tho submarine was brought to tho Bur faco yesterday. The vessel was placed In dry dock last night. It rested on Us starboard side, and there were great holes In tho bow nnd stern. No traco of a body was discovered, but4 tho side of 'the hull was filled with debris. This Is to bo searched for bodies, but tho holes In tho Undersea boat allowed the entranco of marine monsters, with which I the Honolulu waters abound, and It Is feared that the bodies of the F-4 victims had been devoured by them. Tho work of drydocklng was completed nt 10:45 p. m. and squads of marines were stationed about tho exposed hulk to keep away curious sightseers. A string of electric lights wns erected over the sub marine, and laborers began scraping oft masses ot mud and sand that had ad hered to the sides. Shortly after midnight a great jagged holo was discovered In the bow. Power ful HghtB were played through this aper ture, disclosing thick layers of muck. dead fish and all sorts of wreckago and' debris. Four naval officers -were let down through the hole. With pocket search lights ( they made their way carefully through nil tho vessel's compartments. They wero within tho hull for but a short time, nnd when dragged out said they saw nothing that looked like a human body. One officer hnzarded the guess that corpses of tho submarine's sailors -washed out ot the aperture while tho vessel .vu bclpg-iu-wjighf ta.the flurXaceab.d-Bant, in me uuiium oi reani narDor. 11 was thought possible, however, that several would be found beneath Ihe thlcjt coating of mud and sand Inside tho hull. Examination of the hull was suspended at 2 a. m. and resumed shortly after day break today. A hoist was erected above tho submarlno and the work of cleaning out the debris will begin at once. It Is Ucxpccted that this will consume at least two or three days. MYSTERY IN CONDUCT OF GERMAN STUDENT AT THETNIVERSITY Dr. Carl Jiencke, of Berlin, Visited by Special Agent of U. S.
