placed In Jail early yesterday after
noon and released two hours later by
Judge Sadler. It Is said that the com
mitment was not made out In proper
form and could be construed to mean.
If enforced, that the men had been
sent to Jail for life. p
The hearing in the habeas corpus
proceedings was held at 4.30 o'clock
and councllmen, the chief of police
and other officials say they were not
notified in time to be present. A. M. •
Bowman, borough solicitor, was the
only Camji Hill man in attendance.
To-day, it is understood, •fflclals of '
the water company and Superintend
ent Saunders are in Carlisle prepar
ing papers for a suit against the offi
cials of the borough of Camp Hill,
which, it is expected, will be flled next
week. It is said that the seven coun
cilmen. Chief of Police Charles E. Fox
and Highway Commissioner Isaac
Wolfe will be named in the suit, which j
alleges false arrest.
To Seek Injunction
While the water company is having
papers prepared in "Camp Hill one of
the citizens here Is having papers for
injunction proceedings arranged in
Harrisburg for presentation to the
Cumberland County Court early next
week. The temporary Injunction, if
granted, will restrain the company
from turning off water In Camp Hill
until the present litigation is settled. |
Copies of the ordinance which gave
the company the right to enter the
borough and the ordinance fixing the
rates will be offered to the court.
Important sections of the former,
adopted by Camp Hill council October
22. 1 897, follow:
"Section 4. The rates for water
charged to the citizens of Camp Hill
shall at no time exceed the charges
in the city of Harrisburg at a corre
sponding period anil at no time shall
the rates be in excess of, those in Har
risburg at the present time.
"Section 5. A bond of SI,OOO. with
such sureties as are acceptable to the
said council, shall accompany this or
dinance, and in the event of failure to
carrv out any or all of the provisions
of the ordinance the amount of said
bond shall be forfeited to the said
council and all rights of the said Riv
erton Water Company under this ordi
nance shall cease."
Ordinance No. 59, approved May 7
"Section 1. That the meter charges
for pure mountain water shall at no
time exceed the sum of 20 cents for
100 cubic feet: and all other charges
for pure mountain water shall be the
same amounts as fixed by the ordi- :
nance No. 33. approved the 22d day !
of October. 1897.
"Section 2. At the end of five years

of many officials. That Mr. Gough
could serve as city controller until his
term expires two years hence is gen
erally conceded, and the same salary
as provided for his term could be
drawn. This is $2,000.
The general Impression In municipal
circles has been that the councilmen
have been holding off the election of a
city controller until after the question
is settled as to whether Mr. Gough's
present office of county controller is
supported by a constitutional act. The
problem of constitutionality has been
pending in the Blair county courts for
several months. Should the courts
hold that the act is unconstitutional,
and that therefore Air. Gough cannot
continue to hold his present office,
then, it is pointed out, he could
readily fall back on the city con
The Change of Office
The inauguration of the Clark com
mission form of government for Har
risburg made it incumbent upon the
superintendent of finance and accounts
to take over practically all the work
handled heretofore by the city con
troller. Superintendent W. L. Gorgas
accordingly has been filling this job
since taking his oath. He has been
assisted by Marion Verbeke, former
clerk to Mr. Gough and now filling a
similar position with Mr. Gorgas.
That the office of controller has been
infinitely less arduous In view of the
provision of the Clark act is generally
conceded: the duties, In fact, as has
frequently been pointed out by those
in position to know, may not require
more than a couple of months' work a
year in the future. It will be more
or less a matter of auditing.
Council thus far has made no pro
vision in the 1914 budget for any ex
tensive salary for the city controller

In one address this man will present
his message in classic English in

Deals in Fundamentals
There is no hair-splitting theology
in Dr. Stough's sermons. He preaches
what he shouts in clarion tones is the
only universal religion. He exalts
Jesus of Nazareth, makes much of His
deity and proclaims Him as the Hon of
God and the Saviour of the world. He
lays stress upon the love of God, but in
the same sentence makes sinners gasp
by his description of hell, the existence
of which, he asserts, is proved by the
fact that there was a Calvary.
Dr. Stough draws many of his illus-1
tratlons from the Bible and has a
power of graphic description which
| makes the narrative of Scripture very
real. He is intense from the start, has
a gestiure for every sentence, while his
face pictures the passion of his mes

cepts the whole canon of Scripture
and makes telling use of its passages
and stories of Holy Writ.
