President Musser Sends Letter
Telling Why Organization
Should, Be Formed
Commendation of the proposed
businessmen's organization is being re
cei\ ed from all sides by tho temporary
committee charged with the prelimi
naries incident to the formation of tho
association on Wednesday evening.
A letter received by the committee
from John S. Musser, president of the,
Harrisburg Rotary Club, is in line with
the. comments heard. The letter is as
•'Personally, the writer feels that
Harrisburg would be taking a retro
grade step and a very decided retro
grade step, if it was not represented In
a general and a decided way by such
in organization as is planned. Fully
realizing what advertising of our d|ty
means, having experience through an
other organization of which Harris
nurg has obtained quite a little pub
licity, we firmly believe that Harris
burg should maintain a permanent and
effective organization, under whatever
name may be chosen, and Harrisburg
Itself given every opportunity to real
ize from the benefit of this advertising.
It does not follow that each Individual
will receive direct benefit from an or
ganization of this kind, but we all,
collectively, whether we live in Har
risburg or its immediate vicinity, are
affected very much by whatever move
ment that may attain to Harrisburg
HS a city.
"I sincerely hope to see this organi
zation started with a permanent and
effective party of live-wires who are
willing and able to do something for
Harrisburg and you may count on the
writer doing his share.
"Wishing you all compliments of the
season, I am.
"Very truly yours,
"JOHN S. MUSSER. President."

Here's to You and Me
—the pur© food-drink that meets the desire of young and old for a palatable table beverage
which is wholesome and satisfying.
Postum is made only of clean, hard wheat and a small per cent, of New Orleans molasses.
It tastes much like the higher grades of Java, but is absolutely free from caffeine, the drug in
coffee, which causes so much headache, sleeplessness, indigestion, nervousness and heart
Coffee drinker* can learn something of value by a 10 days' change to Postum.
Then, as the coffee poison is eliminated from the system, the brain works clear, nerves
become steady, and the gradual return of peace and comfort will show plainly.
"There's a Reason" for POSTUM
Postum now comes in two forms:
Regular Posturo must be boiled 15 to 20 minutes.
Instant Postum—is a soluble powder A scant teaspoonful stirred in a cup of hot water
dissolves instantly.
The convenience of Instant Postum is app irent. But, when prepared according to direc
tions. botta kinds are exactly the same. The ost per cup is about equal.
—Grocer# everywhere sell both kinds.

Remarkable Record Shown in Re
port of Chief of Mines
James E. Roderick
Advance sheets of the report of
James E. Roderick, State Chief of
Mines, for the operations of 1912 show
that the production of coal in Pennsyl
vania broke all record in that year.
The aggregate output touched 245,-
257,361 short tons, of which 160,830,-
492 were bituminous and 84,426,869
anthracite. This tonnage, says Mr.
Roderick, is about one-half of the
whole tonnage of the United States
for that year and about one-fourth of
the tonnage of the world. The best
previous record was 235,615,459 tons,
made in 1907. A striking comparison
Is made of the output of 44,538,972
tons in 1880.
The section of the report just made
public deals chiefly with the soft coal.
> Just 280 of the 458 mines in the State
are in the bituminous belt and in the
• year covered by the report Vesta No. 4
mine, of the Vesta Coal Company, led
with 1,555,420 tons. The best anthra
cite mine was Prospect of the
t Valley Coal Company, with 1,152,690
tons, Woodward of the Lackawanna
L being next with 1,012,329 tons. The
, coal output wus worth $300,000,000 at
j the mines and the consumers probably
, paid $700,000,000.
"in the bituminous trade there is
the usual complaint regarding low
■ prices," says the Chief. "Put this is
a condition that is unavoidable as
long as the output is unrestricted and
the present cut-throat methods are
followed. Without some co-operation
between the producers to stop cutting
of prices no improvement in this re
spect can be hoped for, and although
the output may be very large the mon
etary returns are frequently very un
satisfactory. This condition does not
apply to the anthracite region. The
coal produced by the great anthracite
corporations is regulated in quantity
and price, with the result that the
profits are large."
The Chief says car shortage and in
ability to obtain miners and helpers
aided to keep down the output. The
conditions of the two-year bituminous
region contract, with the men will
"probably increase somewhat the cost
of production, but to offset this phase
of the trade there will be two years
of peace in the bituminous and four
In the anthracite refelon."
The Chief notes a big gain in the
export trade and hopes that it will
be permanent. He also says: "The
question of safety of mines and the
I protection of the employes, along with
first aid training, took a prominent
place among the incidents of the
year." Tie declares that Pennsylvania
has taken the lead in the matter of
proposed mining legislation. Inci
dentally he notes that the coke pro
duction for 1912 aggregated 24,682,-
474 short tons and made a record.
Mining institutes and vocational
Rchools are highly commended for tho
work they are doing to promote intel
ligence among miners; the safety lamp
development is praised, and in regard
to accidents it is said: "If the acci
dents resulting from carelessness and
disobedience of rules could bo elimi
nated, the fatalities in the mines would
not. be greater than in many other vo
cations in the cities. * * * So
much has been written regarding the
accidents in the coal mines of the
Inited States that a foreigner might
think we had no mining laws in this
country or that if we had any they
are not being enforced. A compari
son of accidents In Pennsylvania with
thos eof Great Britain, however, dis
closes the fact that we are conducting
our mining operations with as great
care as they are in that country. The
total number of fatalities In this coun
try, while deplorably large, is not as
large as In Great Britain," notwith
standing the fact that we produce
three times as much coal per em

! President Judge of Dauphin County,
George Kunkel. Those of us who re
call the contest In which he was first
1 the bench, well remember
i the attacks made upon his record as a
Republican organization man. We re
member how the people were told that
ho was simply a servant of the "gang"
and that as judge, he would be a pliant
tool in their hands. We all recall with
what feelings we awaited his decisions
n the historic Capitol grafting cases:
, how would he construe the law? Would
.. fo A Ket his politics and rise to the
situation and see that justice was
meted out to the seemingly guilty ones?
Would he permit any "invisible gov
i ernment to dictate to him? The
answer to all this is history, written in
, the court dockets of Dauphin county.
, Now, after ten years of faithful ser
vice on the bench, the people of Dau
phin county have again called him to
preside in that honored position. This
is not In the least surprising, but when
we consider the attacks that were
made upon him by the opposition at
that time, and note the change in the
estimate put upon his work and record
of the past ten years, by the very men
who then so bitterly assailed him, we
may be pardoned for making the state

The Debating Society of Engine
Housip No. 2, resolved that you should
turn pver a new leaf and make a reso- j
lution giving poor Jeff a chance—not
giving him a black eye every night in
the Telegraph-—as we think it no more
than fair to allow little Jeff to get a
jab at Mutt and turn the tables on him.
It has been called to our attention
time and time again that we should
notify you to let up on Little Jeff and
soak Big Mutt good and hard.
We hope you will give this matter
your full consideration.

Acting Secretary.
