IW. H. Shuman problem. Shuman's
appointment as noiice chauffeur is
held up pending Council's action as a
result of the investigation of Mayor
Royal's charges of conduct unbecom
ing an officer. The chances are that
the question will be finally settled next
Tuesday and municipal circles to-day
discussed two rumors as to the out
-1 come.
One report was that Shuman's name
will be withdrawn and the question
settled by the appointment of another
man to fill the place to be vacated by
i Hiram Wagner. The other rumor was
to the effect that Mayor Royal will be
satisfied to withdraw his objections to
Shuman's appointment. Commissioner
Bowman to-morrow will get down to
steady plugging on the ordinance pro.
: viding for a sliding scale of water
; rates for manufacturers. This he
hopes to have ready by Tuesday. The
; introduction yesterday of Comniis
; sioner Lynch's "omnibus" sewer ordi
, nance started general discussion among
the city offices to-day as to the prob
| able meeting of the Sinking Fund
Commission to issue the improvement
; bonds for the year's work.
Will Need Big Sum
Just what amount will be floated is
still undecided, but it Is said that
Mr. Lynch will want at least $50,000
for sewers, probably the $25,000 pro
i vided for the isle of safety, and in all
probability he will expect to use the
| ?2 5,000, or most of it. voted for the
construction of new bridges. It is
; said that the repairing of the Paxton
and possibly the State street bridges
will be necessary and this will be paid
from the bridge loan Item. From
I $15,000 to $20,000 of the $25,000 fire
, item will be used this year, it is ex
; pected, although Commissioner Taylor
I hasn't determined on the amount as
; yet. From $25,000 to $50,000 of the
park loan will also likely be used this
; year. Commissioner Lynch said the
i repair plant problem will hardlv be
| taken up this year, as the city 'con
i tract with Alderman C. P. Walter
| doesn't expire for a year.

As soon as the magnitude of the
blizzard this week, became known,
George H. Biles, maintenance engi
neer of the State Highway Depart
ment, began preparations to aid the
county superintendents in getting the
main thoroughfares throughout their
territories made fit for use. Bucks
county, where, from all accounts, the
snowfall was heaviest and the drifts
were" the deepest, has not been ablo
to dig itself out of the snow far enough
to voice any appeal for a deiinite sum
necessary to make the roads passable.
It is known, however, that conditions
there are far worse than in any of
the other counties and it is likely that
a much larger sum will be necessary
to put the roads in passable condition
than has been apportioned to any of
the other counties.
Reports this morning Indicate that
with the moderating weather the work I
of removing the snow and opening the
highways will be prosecuted rapidly
and it is likely that no further snow
fall will Interfere with the work of

England's Newspapers
Criticise Policy Laid
Down by President
By Associated Press
London, March 4. The Mexican
situation and Sir Edward Grey's pro
nouncement of the views of the British
government in regard to the investi
gation into the death of William S.
Benton, are the subject of much com
ment in to-day's newspapers. The
Pall Mall Gazette says:
"The temperate and restrained lan
guage in which Sir Edward Grey re
ferred to the Mexican murder will
have the approval of all Englishmen.
Its moderation, however, will not dis
guise the depth of their feeling.
"Every reason of moral and inter
national right requires of the United
States that the punishment of Ben-
I ton's murderer shall be undertaken
without delay. At the present moment
civilization stands flouted and Great
Britain outraged. The application of
the Monroe Doctrine Is paralyzed and
Policy Responsible
The Globe says:
"Sir Edward Grey said much to em
phasize the gravity of recent events
and very little to relieve the disqui
etude which those events have inevit
ably provoked. The public opinion of
this country, however, sympathetic to
the United States, will not make con
siderations for the embarrassments of
President Wilson an adequate excuse
for acquiescing in such deeds as those
of which Pancho Villa with the ap
proval of Venustiano Carranza has
been guilty. If President Wilson can
not be held responsible for the be
havior of tlie Mexican insurrectionists,
his policy Is directly responsible for
tlie state of things which has led to
Intolerable excesses. What the United
States has done Is not merely to allow
civil war to persist but to foment It by
allowing arms and ammunition to be
supplied to tlie belligerents."
Wilson Shielded
The Daily Chronicle, in its editorial
comment, says:
"In a sense, the United States has
more responsibility in Benton's mur,-
der than Sir Edward Grey stated. Vil
la. his murderer, obtained practically
all his arms and supplies from across
•the American border because the
United States deliberately raised in
his favor an embargo otherwise im
posed by International peace. He was
able to keep the rebellion on foot
IHirtly for this reason, but chiclly be
cause the United States forbade Euro
pcan lenders to advance Huerta money
to crush him.
"If this jiollcy of the United States
did not exist, Benton probably would
still be alive and if he were not, Eng
land would be in a position to get
redress from the regular Mexican gov
ernment. Thus It is really tlie United
States which stands between England
and redress. Though wo may be philo-
Amerlcan enough not to say so offi
cially, other powers in a like case
might not be. The United States. In
short, can hardly find a resting place.
Her poll< les must either go forward
with the assumption of more responsi
bilities or backward, with the aban
donment of some, if not all. which it
has now assumed.''
The Daily Express says:
"We regret the rather humiliating
confession of impotence and we think
that Sir Edward Grey's language not
too aptly chossn; but the sense of his
statement is in accord with public
sentiment and is, on the whole, satis
factory. Tho next move clearly lies
with President Wilson. He has one
of those opportunities that do not re

"Girls" From Carlisle Gave Harris*
burg Women Pointers on the
Latest Things From Paris
Eflis from Carlisle at the Majestic
theater last night offered "George
Brady's Dream," a ragtime operetta
In three acts, that proved without
Question, tho most original and one
of the best amateur productions ever
given in Harrlsburg. A large and ap
preciative audience applauded the l
many interesting features, and voted |
the offering a big success.
Another large audience witnessed
this afternoon's matinee bill. To-night >
the closing perfoi mnee will be given,
the sale of seats indicating another I
crowded house. On Friday night the |
Carlisle Elks will entertain Williams- 1
port Elks and their friends at the'
Lycoming theater in that city. They :
will be accompanied to Wllllamsport i
on their special train by many Har- |
rlsburg Elks.
George Brady is a native of Harris- !
burg, and is as popular here as in |
Carlisle. As a dreamer he is a big
success, especialy whon his dream is
put to music. It tells a story of a
minstrel troup starting at Carlisle,
stranding In the cowboy country, and
; finally being received buck home by
a wealthy woman of Carlisle, after
money is advanced to get the down
and out minstrel company to the Cum
berland Valley college town again.
The dream offers plenty of oppor
tunity for many songs and for rich
costuming and scenery, and there cer
tainly was nothing lacking in this di
rection. The elaborate gowns worn
by the "girls" in the last act, were
of Paris design, and brought much
favorable comment. The tango dances
were gracefully executed, and the
moving picture features, showing the
departure from Carlisle of the min
strel comlany, was quite original.
The entire production is under the
direction of Leo McDonald who wrote
the book and arranged the music tnd
songs. George Brady made a typical
minstrel manager, and had some good
songs, as did "Scotty" Cook, the for
mer Tech High football coach; Buddie
O'Donncll, Ike Mack, "Sass" Harris
and "Bucky" Adams. Real singing
was done by "Jimmy" and "Johnny"
Carroll. Dr. Behney. James Beetem,
"Fat" Coughman, "Archy" Ruggles
and Hugh Miller. The latter as Mrs.
Daisy Deßris, was the one big lilt In
the female Impersonations. Mr. Mil
ler is a Carlisle newspaperman.
There were many encore song num
bers which prolonged the performance
until a late hour. The "Nursery
Rhymes" chorus led by "Johnny"
Carroll was costumed in an attractive
manner. During one of his songs
George Brady was presented with a
large bouquet of roses and carnations.
Director McDonald was also highly
McDonald, who directed tho show
from the orchestra pit, is a member
of the Carlisle lodge of Elks and plays
regulurly In tho Majestic theater or
chestra. His talent for productions
like that of lait night will no doubt
take him some day into that kind of
work along professional lines.

i the risk of life that the Nlblo photo
j graphers were able to secure a pic
ture that would show this custom In a
! manner that would be typical of the

Programs to C'onie
For the remainder of the week, the
programs to be given will include
Egypt, Africa and Ireland. To-morrow
night a picture journey into Egypt will
be the program and this land that is
the niecca for all tourists Is covered in
a most thorough way by the camera.
Cairo, the city ,of the Arabian Nights,
with its oriental charm and splendor,
the pyramids and the Sphynx, the
mystic Mohammedans, their festivals
and ceremonials, the harems of tho
rich and tho hovels of the poor, the
great dam at Asauan, the awful desert
and its strange tribes are only a few
of the features that will bo shown In
the program. On Friday night, Africa
will be the program. In some parts
of Africa slavery still prevails, whore
the women are sold to the highest bid
ders to work as laborers in the fields.
In a motion picture, showing over a
thousand of these women, the story
Is shown is a most vivid manner and it
was by special request that this film
was shown before the Foreign Board
of Missions, ; t their headquarters in
London, to arouse interest In their
campaign to abolish the custom. Sat
urday for the matinee and evening,
Ireland will be given and in Ireland
there is to be found some of the most

Gap of Dunloe, the Road to Glen
gariff, the Giant's Causeway,the side
trips to the country sections as well as
the visits to the cities is faithfully
pictured and shown and in a most at
tractive manner. One picture that al
ways interests is the running of the
famous Punchestown Steeplechase at
Dublin. All that is necessary to make
the Journey at any ono of tho per
formances, is to clip the coupon that
the Telegraph prints on the first pago
and this, with 10 cents, is good for ad
mission and seat.

Because an estate may be
small is all the more reason
why an institution like
this should be named as
Executor or Administrator.

adjustment of
all matters in accord with

Involved, and eliminates
all possibility of unnecessary
expense, so often the case
with the inexperienced
individual executor.
