PUBLIC LIBRARY
FORMALLY OPENED
[Continued From Page I]
Haly, the famous attorney whose
works on the law are standards of to
day.
The Opening Kxerclses
The western half of the building was
filled when promptly at noon, Mr.
Dull called the meeting to order and
introduced Benjamin M. Mead the first
speaktsr.
Mr. Mead, a former trustee told
how the library building was made
possible by the bequest in the will of
Airs. Haly, and briefly gave a few facts
concerning hor life. The new build
ing. he said will be a "beacon light for
the instruction and enlightenment of
this and future generations in Har
risburg. In closeing he expressed tno
gratitude of the people of the city
for the generosity of the donor.
Governor John K. Tener, the next
speaker, represented the State. He
called attention to the good such an
Institution does in a community and
the fact that Pennsylvania is unusually
happy In the number of Its libraries.
He said Harrisburg Is fortunate In hav
ing such an institution in such a
building, "but it Is not the strength of
the beauty of the building," he said,
"that counts so much as the way in
which It is used. It is a building
that should be treasured by this city
and this State."
The "People's University"
Thomas Lynch Montgomery, the
State Librarian, pointed out the in
creased value of public libraries in the
present day of "social, mental and in
tellectual unrest." Such institutions
as this are needed to help the youth
who starts out for himself at four
teen, the present average age of leav
in school. This is in truth the
'People's University' and the ideal of
those who conduct such an institution
must not be too high if the work of the
library is to be well done. The likes
and dislikes of the average person
must be appreciated and sympathized
with or the library will not be used by
those to whom It means most.
Mayor John K. Royal officially' re
corded the appreciation of the city of
Harrisburg for the bequest that "has
filled a long-felt. want. He said the
people of the city will use the new
library and it will remain through the
ages as a testimonial to the one .whose
generosity has made it possible.
Casper Dull, in Introducing Harry
A. Boyer, president of the School
Board, expressed the appreciation of
the board of trustees of the library
for the help given by the school dis
trict in the maintenance of the in
stitution.
Boyer Points Out Its Value
Mr. Boyer explained as the reason
for the board giving this support the
realization of the great value such a
library would be to the teachers and
pupils of the public schools. "The
amount of use to which this institution
will be put will, of course, depend
altogether on the desire of the people
for self-improvement. A task for us
is to instill In the people of the city a
desire for this self-improvement. We
shall co-operate with the association
in bringing about the greatest pos
sible good from the use of this insti
tution."
Miss Alice R. Eaton, the librarian,
who has spent the past six months in
preparing the new library for the
opening day. read an enlightening pa
per on the history of libraries in this
city since the first one was started by
a group of men in 1790. She told of
the lapse of Interest In public libraries
in the middle of the last century and
the growth of private circulating
libraries; the beginnings of the State
Library, which for years after its
founding was used only by State offi
cials, and the organization of the pres
ent association.
At 12.40 o'clock President Dull for
mally declared the library open to fhc
public.
How Library Was
Given to the People
Harrisburg's new Public Library,
which stands at Front and Walnut
streets, one of the conspicuous cor
ners of the miles of parked river front,
was made possible by the benefactions
of Mrs. SaraJ. Haldeman-Haly, widow
of William Haly, a noted attorney,
and a member of the Haldeman fam
ily which has been so prominent In
affairs of Harrlsburg and vicinity for
over ISO years. Mrs. Italy died in
1896 and bequeathed $50,000 to es
tablish a fund from whose revenue
should be purchased books, periodicals
and other articles necessary for the
conduct of a library and SIO,OOO
toward erection of a new -library
building;. The executors were vested
with certain powers and, knowing
Mrs. Ifaly's great interest in securing
a proper library for the city, added,
on December 27, 1 897, the sum of
SIO,OOO in addition to what was con
veyed by the will of June 11, 1896.
On May 14, 1900, the executors for
mally turned over to the trustees of
the library the lot at Front and Wal
nut streets, which was the garden of
the home of Mrs. Haly, for a librarv
bulldlpg, which should be a memorial
to her. On January 31, 1902, the ex
ecutors donated SIO,OOO additional for
the erection of the building on con
dition that they approve the plans and
that the memorial idea be carried out.
This sum of SBO,OOO was invested in
mortgages and about $4 5,000 was
earned, so that when the building's
construction was begun there was
available about $125,000. Of this
amount $40,000 was to be used for
for building, SIO,OOO for furnishing,
which was required to be of the best
and most permanent character, the in
come on $50,000 for books, etc., and
the income on $2 5,000 for general ex
penses.
How well the i lea of a memorial
building that at the same time will
furnish the people of Harrisburg with
a splendid free library has been car
ried out Is apparent. The plans for
the new building were drawn by E. S.
Child, 29 Broadway. New York, and
the contract awarded to J. A. McKelvy
on May 22. 1912, by the building
committee, Messrs. D. Bailey Brandt,
HaldcnianO'Oonnor and James McCor
mlck. Jr. On May 27 the removal of
old buildings and the garden walls
began and on May 29 tho building
permit was issued by the city. The
cornerstone was laid on July 17, 1912
with simple ceremonies. On April l!
1913, the building committee accepted
the building and the trustees inspected
it In the evening of that day. The first
meeting of the trustees was held in
the hew building on April 15. Since
that time the Installation of the fur
niture and books has gone on, the last
permanent fixture, the marble clock,
being added yesterday.
Splendid Building
of Colonial Design
The library stands on a lot about
52 feet i nFront street by 210 feet,
the buldllng being 40 by 170 feet. The
architecture is from the Colonial pe
riod, of the blue limestone so typical
of building: in this part of Pennsylva
nia. The beautiful main entrance is
taken from the Colonial house at
Homewood, near Baltimore, and the
entrance to the basement, in accord
ance with Colonial custom, Is under
the front piazza. The main cornice of
tho building was taken by Mr. Child
from a design by James Gibb, the
architect of famous St. Michael's
Church lu Charleston, S. C„ while

been killed and the wounded will' be
far In excess of that number. Horrify
ing sights were witnessed on the Amer
ican side before daylight. The wound
ed soldiers with shattered arms, legs
shot off and injuries that later proved
fatal, struggled through the river and
pleaded to the American soldiers for
help. All the physicians and medical
supplies available here were placed at
the service of the disabled federals.
Before daylight more than 200 wound
ed had sought relief on this side. Some
of these were so badly injured that
they begged the American soldiers to
kill them.
From the war-scarred little village
of Ojinaga, back a mile from the river,
there came what appeared to be an
endless tide of wounded. The fight
on the border here had the appear
ance of being the most sanguinary con
flict of the present revolution.
Federal deserters also came to the
river in great numbers, indicating that
the bulk of Huerta's army was dis
posed to give up. All the deserters
who were not wounded, however, were
disarmed on this side and sent back by
Major McNamee, commanding the
United States border patrol. Major
McNamee has more than 300 guns
which he took from deserters. During
the night the groaning of the wounded
| on the battlefield on the opposite side
of the river could be heard by tho
American cavalrymen. The firing In
the darkness seemed to be heavier
than It bad yet been. All women,
children and noncombatants of Ojina
ga came to the river and were taken
to the American side.
The little Bed Cross headquarters on
this side where the federal wounded
are being cared for now is as active
as a Held hospital on a battlefield.

announced his intention of asking the
commission to continue in office if the
members would agree, and at the
meeting last night the board consent
ed to serve.
Admirable Service
"The Health Board kindly agreed
to serve," said Mr. Bowman in speak
ing of the matter this oiarning, "and
I appreciate this very much. The men
have served admirably prior to the
changing of the syste mof government,
returned splendid service to the City
and guarded its interests well. So,
naturally, I wished to retain them pro
vided they would serve."
Mayor Royal, it is understood, had
hoped for the retention' of the board
and the action of Mr. Bowman in ask
ing that it be retained was pleasing
to him.
Commissioner of Streets and Public
Improvements W. H. Lynch to-day
discussed very briefly the reported ac
tion of Mayor Royal as to possible
mandamus proceedings to prevent the
dropping of policemen. "As for the
mandamus end of the matter, that X
know nothing of," said he. "Anyway
I would prefer to leave such a matter
for Mr. Seitz, the City Solicitor, lie is
the legal advisor for the city.
Commissioner Lynch S|>caks
"As for the discussion about my ac
tion in Council last Tuesday relative
to the dismissal of Patrolmen Mitchell
and Haines and the appointment of
Messrs. Murphy and Cope, I can only
say that I think Council is the ap
pointing body, and that certainly one
member may be permitted to make
suggestions for changes in any city de
partment, when he thinks the city's
service would be improved. What
Council decides to do about it will be
for Council to say; every member has
a vo.e.
"As for the significance of the move,
as had been spoken of, why I can say
this: Mayor Royal started this him
self, two weeks ago. if you'll remem
ber, when I asked that John Riley be
dismissed from the Highway Depart
ment for the good of the service. He
objected to and tried to prevent, the re
moval of Mr. Riley, and he really gave
no reason, if there has been anything
started, as the Mayor seems to think,
why the Mayor himself really started
it."

Mr. Lynch only laughed when asked

more policemen dropped. "Why I
know of nothing of the kind," said he.
"T certainly haven't had any such
thing In mind."
The report was mors or lees gen

Lieutenant James P. Thompson, under
Mayors Gross and Meals, is to be ap

All the city and county offices were
closed to-day with the exception of the
