ure of Celebration
DRILLS AND SHAM BATTLE
Philadelphia's premier position among
the inland ports of America Is being ac
With this recognition come3 an added
triumph In tho dawn of a new era- In the
history of the Philadelphia Navy Yard,
which, with tho launching of tho 10,000-ton
transport Henderson this nfternoon, as a
fenturo of Its Nnvy Day exerclsos, demon
strates tho ability of facilities and skill to
competo successfully with prlvato ship
building enterprise and at great saving of
tlmo and expense.
Not only naval officers and shipwrights,
but nil Philadelphia, joined today In com
memorating tho dual achievement. Loynl
citizens rejoiced In the splendid demon
stration that ushered In for their native
municipality what promises to be n con
dtantly growing exemplification of tho su
premacy of tho port of Philadelphia.
That other find larger vessels nre to bo
built nt tho local yard citizens and navnl of
ficers agreed. The launching of tho Hender
son, Important In Itself It is hoped Is but
the beginning of that recognition for which
Philadelphia, through Its Congrcssmcn,
trades bodies nnd citizenship generally, has
been battling for years to accomplish.
The navy yard Itself was In gala nttlro
for tho occasion and will remain so until
nearly midnight. Tho crew of every war
vessel In the. station had "dressed ship" nt
sunrise, and from every building floated tho
Stars and Stripes.
GREAT SHIP DECORATED.
Tho gigantic transport, as .ft rested on the
ways preparatory td the launching cere
monies, was decorated with (lags from stem
to stern. Bunting was festooned and draped
throughout the yard and genefal holiday was
kept by officers and men. On Navy Day
last year the keel of tho big vesBel was laid.
This Jubilation was shared by tho civilian
visitors. Their participation was inspired
by the realization that the event thoy had
assembled to witness would launch Philadel
phia far to the front as a naval and com
mercial centre, and that the day, big though
It was. yet was merely Introductory of still
greater accomplishment yet to come.
Captain Robert Leo Russell, U. S. N.,
commandant of the navy yard, had over
looked no. detail for the entertainment nnd
Information of his guests. Navy divers were
on hand to show the visitors how that Im
portant branch of undersea work Is per
formed. The sinking of the submarine F-4 nt

Buyers or sellers of the familiar Fourth
of July fire balloon, and even those who
have them In their possession, will pay a
fine of 1200 or spend as much as 60 days
In Jail this year If the police catch them.
The existence of a law that slipped by
without comment when It was passed by
the Pennsylvania Legislature In 1315 was
called Into notice today by orders from
Superintendent of Police Robinson to en
force it. The law was operative after
January, 1916, This Is the first Fourth
that cornea under the law's restriction.
The law is designed to prevent fires.
Aware that It would be hard for police to
trace the source of a fire balloon once It was
In the air, those who framed the act em
bodied a severe penalty. The maximum Is
the 1200 fine, the 60-day term In Jail, or
both. Superintendent Robinson Issued an
order this afternoon, with the approval of

HUNTINGDON. Pa., June 17. Since the
devastating flood of 1889 the Juniata Val
ley has not suffered as much damage as
that caused by tho present widespread
sweep of waters. An Incessant rain of
three days' duration has swollen the Juni
ata River and RaystoWn Branch to sweep
ing proportions. The Juniata River has
risen to a height of-17 feet nnd residents
were forcod to fleo to the hills for safety
and had to convert the property of the
Pennsylvania Railroad Into temporary
abodes of shelter
South Huntingdon Is submerged to a
depth of Beven feet, but It Is not thought
that the State Reformatory, situated In this
section, will suffer.any damage. Many cat
tle have been caught by the rising stream
and drowned. Heavy loss has been suf
fered In the destruction of growing crops,
outbuildings, fences and stock.
Three landslides on the Pennsylvania
Railroad, west of here, were discovered In
time to avert serious train wrecks. The
rivers this morning continue to rise.
Thousands of dollars' damage has been
caused throughout Blair County by the
floods. The Chicago mall train, over the
Pennsylvania lines, ran- Into a landslide
east of tho Spruce Creek Tunnel last night,
derailing the locomotive, but po one was'
Inlured. because of the fact that tne tram

POUGHKEEPSIE, N, Y. June 17 An
unkind fate, In fact a real Jinx, appeared
this morning and slapped Joseph Wright,
Pennsylvania's rowing coachi on both
Cheeks. It came In the shape of wind and
rain, the former prevailing In plte.tof the
vsual contrary situation whlch'the (wo play
with the surface of the Hudson, and It
gives eyery prpmlse of ruining Pennsylva
nia's fpndest hopes of victory In any of
the races this afternoon. For be It known
right now, before alibis are alibis that
Joseph Wright stated to the representative
Of the Eveninq Ledoer no later than at
supper time last night that his crews would
be about out of the races If the water was
rough, simply because they have had no ex
perience n handling their oars on a tur
bulent surface this spring.
There was no alibi meant by this state
ment of Wright's j it was simply a fact that
came out of, the general conversation, but
it comes clearly to the surface this morn
ing and presages gloom for the Quakers,
for tha reason that if the same southeast
wind continues all afternoon tha surface
of tha 'Hudson will be a mass of tossjng
whltecapa apd swells because. a that tme
the tide will be running toward the pcean
and, therefore, bucking the winds.
HOPE FOR DOWNPOUR.
Of course, It the rain continues as pre
dicted, and the showers and drizzles of
the morning turn to a heavy downpour, they
will cast no gloom upon the Quakers, for
heavy downpours act as oil upon troubled
waters nd make them placid and calm.
Therein rests Penn's hopes, and those who
pray for Just this thing will be contributing
