Columbia Pastor Plans
Big Religious Movement
Columbia, Pa., Jan S.—The Rev.
| John C. Bieri, pastor of the First
| Methodist Church in this borough re
cently closed an evangelistic service
'which was the beginning of a series
;of meetings to be inaugurated later in
I the season.
j In order to awaken interest in the
i religious movement in the borough the
: Rev. Rleri has planned a service on
j the last day of the year which will
i continue for eighteen consecutive
| hours, and in which the New Testa
iment will be read through from the
; beginning to the end. The service
will start at 6 o'clock in the morning
and continue until after midnight and
j in that time thirty-four persons who
; have volunteered their services will
I read contlnouslv, each for a half hour
,or longer. The concluding hour of
j the service will be in the nature of
I watch night prayer, and will l.e finallv
closed in the New Year. This depar
ture from the usual routine promises
jto attract hundred of people to the
County Tax Rate For
1914 Likely to Remain
at Present, 4 Per Cent.
If the County Commissioners follow
: their usual custom Mondav at the re.
organization meeting day of the year,
and fix the tax rate for the ensuing
; twelve months it is believed that the
present rate of four mills will bp con
tinued. J- urthermore. it Is doubtful if
jthe talked of reduction of the county's
indebtedness by the redemption of SJO.-
! 000 or $20.000 worth of bonds will be
; made. Tiie county, should bonds be re-
I deemed, would be compelled to tide
itself over a few months during tlie
year perhaps with temporary loans.
Joseph A. Miller, son of Countv Com
missioner S. S. Miller, clerk in tlie com
| missioners' office for two years, and in
jthe county recorder's office for prettv
much the same length of time, resigned
I to-day to accept the secretaryship of
i Eas t Harrisburg Cemetery Associ
ation. Mr. Miller l»aves behind a host
jof friends and wide circle of acquaint
ances and they all wished him good
luck to-day when he departed.
; William A. Mcllhenny, clerk to the
Poor Board, has been spoken of as the
, probable successor to Mr. Miller, al
! though Mcllhenny said that he has had
ino official intimation from the Poor
| Directors that he is to be dismissed.
I Only Director T. H. Manning has asked
j him to continue in service.
Gompers Says Wilson
Would Outlaw Labor
Washington, Jan. 3.—Samuel Gomp
ers, president of the American Federa
tion of Labor, vigorously assails the
| Wilson Administration in an editorial
in the January number of the Amer
ican Kederationist, the official organ
of the organization. Mr. Gompers
charges that as the laws are now inter
' preted by Wilson's appointees, they
seriously menace the labor movement.
Whether or not organized labor is to
jbe outlawed is a question which the
American people must decide without
i further delay, according to Gompers.
j He views with Alarm the indictment of
; officials of the United Mine Workers
; on account of their activities in West
.Virginia and asserts that the very life
of organized labor is at stake.
