DAUPHIN county's township su
pervisor* have been summoned
to meet in the first convention of
the kind ever held in Dauphin
county. The meeting ■will be held In
Harrleburg on March 37 and every
supervisor worthy of the name will
he present. The gathering will be
held under the auspices of the State
Highway Department and the terms
of the township road bureau act will
he explained.
This new law is designed to bring
Rbout hearty and effective co-operation
between the road supervisors of the
several counties and the experts of
the State Highway Department.
Supervisors have been severely cen
sured In the past for the condition of
the roads under their care. Some of
this criticism has been well deserved,
but much of It fell upon the heads of
faithful public servants who were do
ing the best they knew under great
The trouble has been that men have
been elected to the road jobs who did
not know anything about road con
struction beyond the filling tip of mud
holes and the leveling off of high
spots. The first principles of road en
gineering were as Greek to them.
They were, farmers who knew good
ronds when they used them, but who
were, in the very nature of things,
ignorant as to the fundamentals of
highway construction.
The township road bureau has been
• reated to correct this condition. Ex
perts In the employ of the State will
he ready at all times to assist the
nupervisors. They will aid them in
solving their problems, will draw plans
n.nd specifications and when necessary
consult In person with ptuzled officials.
This without cost to the township.
Some counties have for years main
tained organizations of supervisors,
anticipating to some degree the pro
visions of the township bureau act,
hut. Dauphin county supervisors have
Tint been so affiliated. Doubtless the
March convention will result. In some

•provisions are carried out the effect,

ONE of the most Interesting de
velopments of the week Is the
announcement of the United
States Bureau of Education
<'hat it has undertaken the gigantic
lask, in conjunction with the National
Municipal League, of making a com
prehensive study of the whole problem
of civic education. The Bureau of
Education thus hopes to do officially
and systematically what has hereto
fore been attempted by a. number of
organisations working independently.
Msny civic associations throughout the
United States have been agitating In
behalf of education for citizenship.
Valuable results have been obtained
and many communities have made
important experiments in improving
citizenship through the schools and
through other agencies. The bureau
will seek to co-ordinate these hitherto
separate efforts, to bring 00-operation
where Independent action has pre
vailed. to make known everywhere
the results of civic education so far
accomplished and to formulate a con
structive plan for definite work In this
important field.
The bureau thus early finds that one
of the most pressing problems in citi
zenship education is that of properly
equipped teachers. There are few
teachers that have had the requisite
special training. It will be one of the
vital tasks In the new work to find
out what can be done to train men
and women, whether already In the
service or just preparing to teach, for
the definite responsibilities and possi
bilities of direct instruction in citizen
The bureau will inquire as to
whether it is sufficient that children
should know how the President is
elected, or that they should he able to
recite the Constitution; to what extent
modern social and civic questions—
clean streets, pure water, milk supply,
fire protection, means of transporta
tion. co-operat ion, suffrage, divorce,
etc. —are to be considered. These are
the sort of questions to which the new
corps of investigators will have to give
some attention, nnd very properly so.
In addition, an effort will be made to
report the many attempts on the part
of progressive communities to give all
school subjects a more definite civic
value. In Kansas City, for example,
the chemistry course in the high
school Is in effect a course in practical
civics—such things as water and milk
analysis, with their significance In
community life, are emphasized, and
high school students serve In the mu
nicipal laboratories. Cleveland teaches
municipal problems in the biology
course. Indianapolis has a course In
"community arithmetic" "in the ele
mentary schools. Vocational educa
tion and school hygiene both have
civic phases of immense importance.
These and other practical matters in
citizenship training will lie carefully
Commissioner Claxton points out
that in the larger sense all education
Is really education for citizenship; that
not only is citizenship training coex
tensive with effective education in gen
eral. but that "the final justification of
public taxation for public education
lies in the training of young people
for citizenship."
There i? room right here in Harris
burg for the adoption of some of the
practical suggestions herewith out
lined and the new project of the na
tional bureau deserves the earnest
study and co-operation of all our edu

MOST of the Republican news
papers of the State are in line
with the Telegraph in urging
the two wings of the party to
get together against their common
enemy—the Democracy. During the
past week or two there has been a
decided back-to-the-party movement
all over Pennsylvania, and those lead
ers of both factions who still persist,
for their own ambitious purposes, in
fomenting discord and in the refusal
to concede, anything for the sake of
harmony are rapidly losing the con
fidence of the rank and file of both
As illustrating the trend of this sen
timent, the Altoona Tribune calls upon
the Republicans of both camps to cast
aside their differences and unite in the
support of a proper candidate for Con
gress in the Blair district. On this
subject it says:
A Democratic Congressman was
elected from tills district in No
vember, 191 L', because the enemies
of Democratic policies were divided.
The vote, was almost equally di
vided among the three candidates,
the Democrat having a few more
votes than either th° Republican or
the progressive. Hut on the total
vote cast lie was in a minority of
over 10,000.
While we do not think the same
thing is going' to happen in 1914,
yet there is a possibility in that
direction. At the present moment
there seems to be a disposition
among Republican citizens to for
get their differences and get to
gether. a very sensible inclination,
one that ought to he encouraged.
The fact that the voters are priv
ileged to make the nominations as
well as elect the Congressman
ought to do something toward pro
moting union.
The Tribune is inclined to be
lieve that the Republicans of the
Congressional district- —and by Re
publicans we mean the progres
sives as well as the regulars—will
be seriously at fault unless they do
make a sincere effort to unite upon
a candidate for Congress who will
he, aceptable to both factions. *
The Tribune does not have any
particular person in view when It
I makes these remarks. It has no
candidate and will gladly support
any gentleman of fine tlbre and pro
gressive ideas if the rank and file
of the district will simply find such
a man and nominate him. either
as the Republican or the Progres
sive candidate, or. what would be
far better, as the nominee of the
united factions. What sense Is
there in quarreling and perpetuat
ing Democratic dominance when
an overwhelming majority of the
district, the State and the nation
nre agreed upon the substantial
principles of government? Why
perpetuate Republican divisions for
the sake of gratifying personal am
bitions or to the end that the
Democratic party may continue to
mismanage the Government?
In this attitude our esteemed Al
toona contemporary is representing
the better sentiment of both factions
of the Republican party. Most of the
Republican newspapers are losing pa
tience over the stubborn and indiffer
ent. position assumed by the rantank
erous individuals who assume leader
ship in both camps without any re
gard whatever for the welfare of the
party as a whole.
This newspaper believes that there
is ample material of the right sort in
the Republican party for the making
of a ticket which will be entirely ac
ceptable to the great majority of the
voters in both factions. It need not
surprise those who are persisting in
a suicidal political course for their
own ambitious purposes to see the
great body of Republican voters—
stalwarts and progressives—marching
down one road while these leaders
pursue their fatuous course in an op
posite direction. Leaders without fol
lowers do not cut a partipularly Inter
esting figure, and the time has about
come for all Republicans to. forget
their differences and their petty per
sonal feelings in a broad, generous
and sensible movement for the re
habilitation of the party in Pennsyl

Tioga County Man Forges to thej

at Philadelphia
Refuse to Endorse McCormick—
Palmer, Says Democrats Must
Stand by Nominee
According to word received at the |
Capitol to-das - State Treasurer Rob- j
(•ft K. Young is being very strongly i
supported for the Washington party |
nomination for Governor and a de- j
terniined effort to secure iiis endorse
ment will be started to-day at the
meeting in Philadelphia and pushed
ill the conference on a .State ticket to
be held here next week.
English is being used as a com
promise by people who want to elimi
nate both Young and Dean l,ewis.
Lewis is not as strong as he was two
weeks ago and Bull Moosers who
study the signs of the times are turn
ling in for the Tioea man. Young last
night reiterated his statement that he
was not a candidate, but if a strong
movement for him begins there is no
question but what he would accept.
Members of the West End Demo
cratic Club are having a pleasant time
of it these days because of efforts of
friends of Vance C. Mc-
Cormick to have that or-
West End ganlzation follow the lead
Keeps to of the Central and pass a
Its Itules resolution endorsing his
candidacy for the nomi
nation for Governor.. Un
like the internally disturbed Central
the West End club appears to have
some regard for the proprieties and
has thus far declined to allow itself
to be used by any candidate for a
nomination. Even representations that
President Wilson wants McCormick
for Governor have failed to move
some of the members who believe in
keeping party squabbles out of the
club and the doctrine of Jersey inter
ference is not as popular up Third
street as it is in Market Square.
At the Lehigh Washington confer
ence last night Gifford Pinchot was
indorsed for United States Senator.
The following slate was suggested for
the May primary: State Senator,
Robert W. Norgang, J. L. Hoffman;
Congress, Claude T. Ileno, Professor
John L. Stewart; Assembly, H. W.
Bloss, Roy Marshall, Irving Trexler,
W. H. Miller, Charles Reber. C. S.
Spear; State Committee, Fred O.

Those picturesque battles between
the Mutchler and other factions in
Northampton county and in that con

which elder Democrats
recall, bid fair to break Evans Hand
out again over the sue- Arouses the
cession to the seat now Muclilcrites
held in Congress by A.
Mitchell Palmer. Pal
mer and his lieutenants have slated
Pennel C. Evans for the job and the
Mutchler people and the whole anti-
Palmer crowd have 'arranged to run
some one else. Evans is a former
member of the House from Eastoti
and was rather mild when here. Me
was a national delegate in 3 912 and
followed the Wilson banner when
ever he could parade. The chances are
that there will be a diverting time in
that district this year. The last lie
publican elected from that district,
Gustave Schooebeli, went in through a
Democratic split.

nomination did not get very far out

A. R. Rupicy is reported to he en
deavoring to enlist some Democrats
in iiis campaign, hoping that n weak
candidate will be put up and his own
rather wilted hopes will be revived in
the form of a district nomination.

lately, would be a can

lias caused a ripple of in District
interest here where
Grover is well known.
He is ? son of a noted Democratic
leader and possessed of considerable
ability, part of which consists in be

ances. The Hull Moosers have Sam
uel R. Scott, the stormy petrel of the
last House, on their hands as a candi
date for the nomination and the vet
eran Tlobert R. Dearden may be the
[ Republican candidate. The district is
lan uncertain one, and in the present
state of politics there is no telling what
might happen. Dearden's friends say
[lie will win without trouble.

Philadelphia the last few

Brought terday by a strong move
to Front ment in behalf of Sen
ator John O. Sheatz, a
former State Treasurer,
and one of the active independent Re
publicans. Senator Sheatz. who is very
strong throughout the State, was put
to the front yesterday by some of the
leaders and the mention of his name
evoked a response that was surprising.
In this vicinity Sheatz is strong be
cause of his work in the Treasury.
He has been mentioned for Congress
In the West Philadelphia district, but
it now looks as though he would be
selected for a State nomination.
Democrats have been hoping that
Sheatz would not get into the State

he asserts that the

what Palmer says is interesting. Evi
dently, Palmer is as keen on party
regularity as he was in 1910 when he
made speeches for Grim and when
other candidates were working for
Berry. Palmer says: "Every Demo
crat must make his own choice and,
after all have spoken, the choice of
the majority should be supported by
everybody. Honest differences of
opinion within the party are inevit
able, both as to policies and as to can
didates, and there is no better way of
reaching common ground than for
all to submit their cause to the people
in a State-wide primary."

Then there bursts upon your vision two
or three cars in a string,
Stretched out many times a square or
more apart,
Every one will brush right by you, save
the last one, which will stop.
And receive you out of kindness of
Its heart.
O, the Third Street line's a pippin, and
It surely ought to be
A money-bringer to the company's
For I don't see how it costs them any
thing for management,
Seems to me they let it run just as
it will.

of the coffee is entirely preserved.
Toast made with an Electric Toaster
is equally delicious—can be done just

cooking" done with Electric Utensils
is appreciated by the entire family—
and the utensils can be used wherever
there is Electric Light.
