Reports of the HarrSsburg and Dan
ville districts were read this morn
ing at the session of the Central Penn
sylvania conference of the Methodist
Episcopal Church, In Grace Church:
secretaries of the various conference
interest were Introduced, and the
Harrlsburg Ministerial Association was
frlven a reception by the conference
Harrlsburg; Methodism Grows
Moat important from a local view
point of the conference work of to-day
wa» the reading of the report of the
Harrlsburg district by the Rev. A. 8.
Vaaick. of Carlisle, district superin
Among other points brought out in
the report is that Harrlsburg Meth
odism has been moving forward at
such a pace that to-day the district is
alone giving to missions almost as
much as the entire Central Pennsyl
vania Conference was thirty years ago.
Speaking of the Sunday school work
of the district, the Rev. Mr. Fasick
said that this department is better or
ganized and doing more efficient work
than ever in the history of the con
ference. One of the things in which
the Sunday schools are lacking, says
Mr. Fasick, is teacher training work.
Too Little Social Life
Entirely too little is being done in
the development of the social life of
the young people of the church, states |
the superintendent. He says, in part, J
in discussing the Epworth League:
"In this day of questionable and
harmful amusements the league ought
to be doing vastly more in the direc
tion of the social life of the young peo
ple. Moreover, in the rural districts
our Epworth Leagues ought to be so
The report shows that large sums
have been paid on church debts in
this city and its vicinity. The amount I
of money contributed to benevolences I
during the year by the district is also j
shown to be quite large. In the Work i
of conversion reports indicate 1,72 7, !
the largest in many years. Only five
charges report no conversions. The
number of full members now on the
rolls is 15,699, a gain of 484.
Mr. Fasick points out that a great
wave of temperance sentiment is pass
ing over the Harrlsburg district, re
sulting in the reducing of the number
of saloons. He declares:
"THE SALOON IS DOOMED"
The report of the Harrlsburg dis
trict in full is as follows:
"Thirty-eight years ago, in 1876, the
eighth sessions of the Central Penn
sylvania Conference met In Harrlsburg
in Grace Church, Dr. C. A. Holmes,
pastor, being the host. The sessions
were held in the Opera House. Bishop

Steelton Murderer Not Within

I Hall shot and killed W. H. Slater,
| a fellow negro, In Steelton nearly a
; year ago during- a jealous quarrel.
Dess than two months after Hall
committed the crime for which he
must atone on the scaffold, the new
law, which provides that the highest
crime against the State must be paid
'on the electric char, became effective.
This law went into effect July 1, and
it provides that murders committed

One other man now In the Dauphin
county prison comes within the limit.
I This is Martin Fleming, who has been
1 1 convicted, but who baa not yet been
sentenced pending the disposal of his
application for a new trial.
The story of Hall was one of the
murder trials which stirred Steelton
during the latter part of April. 1913.
Both men, it developed, loved the
same woman-—a woman of the city's
underworld. Frequently they quar
reled and one day the two men met
in the streets of Steelton and Slater
fell before Hall's gun.
During his trial the defense attempt
l ed to show that Hall was mentally ir
responsible and that he rather in
j herited the insanity strain from an
j ancestor who had been kicked years
| ago by a horse, in his native home of
i South Carolina.
I The defense in the Hall case, it is
j understood, will place the case before
'the Board of Pardons. The con
demned man's aged mother has fre
quently wrlten his counsel, W. J.
Carter, to intercede with the Governor
in her son's behalf. \
| Governor Tener also fixed the same
date, May 26, for tke execution of Ma
lena Massn, of Schuylkill county.

, Fayette county, were granted respites
'from March 26 to April 23 in order
that their cases may be presented to

Photographs of Missing Boy Sent
Broadcast in Effort to
By Associated Prtss
Philadelphia, March 19. —The mys
tery surrounding the disappearance of
7-year-old Warren McCarrick Is to
day as complete as when the boy was
first missed from his home a week
ago. An almost ceaselessc reach by his
father, assisted by his friends, boy
scouts and the entire police force of
this city and the surrounding coun
try, has failed to reveal a single defi
nite clue as to the missing boy's
whereabouts or to give an inkling as
to his probable fate.
Fifteen of the cleverest detectives
in the local service who have been
detailed on the case were obliged to
confess to-day that they were no
nearer the solution of the problem
than when thfcy were first assigned to
unravel It. Varying theories are ad
vanced to account for the boy's disap
pearance. Those who believe he has
been kidnaped for a ransom point to
the fact that while the child's father
is not wealthy, his grandmother, who
was much attached to him, Is a prop
erty owner. Other investigators are
firm in the belief that the boy met
with an accident and was killed in
such a way that his body cannot be
found. Other theories advanced are
that he was taken away and possibly
killed by h degenerate or that he was
taken captive by gypsies.
Photographs and descriptions of the
missing boy have been sent broadcast
and it Is proposed to utilize the mov
! ing pictures in an effort to secure
some clue. A reward of SI,OOO has
already been offered for his return and
