WEDNESDAY EVENING, APRIL. 1
PRESIDENT WILSON has won a
"victory" in the lower house of
Congress, but at what frightful
cost to himself and his party.
The Sims bill, repealing the Panama
tolls law whereby American shipping
would go free through the Panama
Canal, has been passed by a majority
of 86 votes, but the heretofore boasted
solidarity of the Democratic party at
Washington has been smashed.
Underwood, who has carried out the
orders of the White House on the floor
of the House, has revolted against the
Speaker Clark, who lield many of
his colleagues to the President's wishes
when unpopular bills were under con
sideration, is estranged.
The Wilson forces arc already plan
ning to unhorso them. A new leader
is scheduled to take Underwood's
place. A new Speaker is in prospect,

jority in tho next Congress—a some
what remote contingency unless all
The Democratic machine is on the
rocks. Underwood and Clark and the
forces they represent in the party the
4RT country over will be opposed to the
renomination of the President. The
President will find them arrayed
against hiin during the remainder of
his term whenever the opportunity
It is quite apparent, regardless of
all their protestations to the contrary,
that neither Underwood nor Clark any
longer trusts the sincerity of the
President whom they previously served
so well. And why should they?
Considerably more than a month
ago Senator Lodge told his colleagues
that he liad been informed by the
White House that the passage of the
Sims bill wns vital to matters of great
import involving foreign relations.
The President himself, addressing
Congress some days later, said:
1 shall not know how to deal
with other matters of even greater
delicacy and nearer consequence, if
you do not grant it to mo in un
White House candidate for the Senate

secrets of state and grave foreign com
plications concerning which the ad

nection with the canal tolls.
Then came the President himself to
blandly deny that there were any such
complications—in effect to retract, and
without any explanation at that, his
own assertion before the House of

USE OF lIEROIX SPREADS
A FEW weeks ago the dead body
of a young girl was found in a
Harrisburg hotel. For some
days mystery surrounded tho
death. The physicians found that the
cause was an overdose of heroin. Since
that time the State Dairy and Food,
Division, which keeps a pretty con
stant vigil in such matters, reports
that the use of the drug is growing
Commissioner James Foust reports
that the sales of this drug have re
cently increased greatly, particularly
in those States which havo laws pre
venting the indiscriminate sale of
morphine and cocaine. Investigation
of the subject established the fact
that many drug victims who formerly
used morphine and cocaine, and who
under the new laws find it difficult to
obtain these substances, have begun
using heroin, the sale of which is not
as carefully restricted under State
The drug Is said to be fully as dan
gerous as morphine, and by many is
held to be much worse, for the reason
that it occasionally kills the victim
outfight, and its habit is far harder
to overcome than the use of the other
drugs. The department, pending fur
ther action, specially warns al! people
who are unfamiliar with the drug to
avoid all preparations containing the
substance and to take it only on the
prescription of reputable physicians.
Heroin is a derivative of morphine,
the opium alkaloid. It is known in
chemical parlance as diacetyl mor
phine, and it is frequently found as a
constituent of a number of proprie
tary drugs. Its use seems to be espec
ially notable in parts of Pennsylvania.
Numerous deaths due to the use of the
drug have been reported from various
parts of the State.
The substance apparently is far
more dangerous for drug- users than
morphine or cocaine. Drug fiends are
able to consume relatively large quan
tities of the other two drugs, but any
sudden and material increase in the
amount of heroin taken Is very liable
to prove fatal. As indicating the wide
sale of this substance it is known that
one druggist In Pennsylvania whoso
store was located In an undesirable
section of his city has been buying
heroin tablets in 25,000 lots.
According to the experts of *he food
bureau, the word "heroin" on any label
should act as a danger signal, and
users of patent and proprietary medi
cines are warned to closely examine
the labels on bottles or packages to
ascertain whether the medicines con
tain the drug or not.
THE sixth annual dinner of the
West End Republican Club last
evening was remarkable for an
unusually large attendance and
much enthusiasm. The after-dinner
speeches developed into serious dis
cussions of national problems—mat
ters now having the attention of the
public as affecting very seriously the
welfare of the individual and the
ready applause attested the deep in
terest of the diners and their under
standing of the close relationship of
the present administration at Wash
ington to the stagnation of business
now being experienced from one end
of the country to the other.
So long as the Individual purse was
not flattened, so long as work was
plentiful and business fairly remunera
tive, Americans, rich and poor, were
inclined to hearken to ftie voice of
the plausible reformer at Washington,
promising the millenlum at the hands
of a Democratic Congress, but since
the dire effects of the reckless attacks
of that Congress on business have
become apparent they have become
impatient with glittering theories and
ready to listen to reason.
The Republican clubs like that of
the West End are doing a splendid
party work. It is around such organi
zations that the party forces rally and
when they turn out in such numbers
as attended tHe dinner last night—
when the big dining room would not
hold them all —it Is beyond question
indicative of a stirring interest In
national affairs that speaks well for
Republican success at the polls.
SCHOOLS AND FARMS
PENNSYLVANIA might take a
lesson from Oklahoma. If that
State has big crops the coming
summer It will be due in part
to the aid rendered the farmers by
the schools. Throughout the State
th* teachers and pupils have been
systematically testing seeds for the
planters in their respective communi
ties. Every teacher in the «tate has
I received from State Superintendent
Wilson a scoring sheet on which to
record the tests. Seed from last year's
crop is reported to be particularly
unreliable, and agricultural experts
say there is special need this year for
some such direct service as the schools
"No movement has been started In
our State which can result in as much
good with so little cost to the people
generally," declares Mr. Wilson. "It
will not only be a financial benefit to
the farmer by teaching him to plant
none but good seed, but it is of dis
tinct educational value to the chil
dren. it furnishes one of the best
lesson* thai can be taught In botany
: or Hgrit'ijUure. nnci affords the oppor
[tufiity i" come in cloaer contact with
every farmer in tlio community, a
thing which all good teachers are
anxious to do."
If the tests are properly made and
the information followed by the farm
ers, the results should be remarkable.
Tho lessons taught can be applied
year after year and constantly im
proved upon, until the time will come,
as It should come, when seeds of any
kind whatsoever will not be planted
until they have lirst been tested. If
the schools, through their teachers and
pupils, can bring this about, they will
have fulfilled one of the groatest mis
sions for which they are supported by
public funds —that of making bread
Officials of the United States bureau
of education point to Superintendent
Wilson's experiment in Oklahoma as
an important example of what the
schools can do to make tho contact
between education and the real life
of the community in which the school
1 EVENING CHAT 1
It is evident that a good many men
in Harrlsburg and roundabout arc de
sirous of becoming, or being, as the
case may be, known as men con
structed on "modern lines." Some days
ago a leading tailor announced that
the men of this generation were tall,
straight fellows with shoulders wider
than their stomachs and that the
rotund form that was formerly a sign
of success in life is disappearing and
that adipose tissue is no longer ac
cepted as an evidence that things were
going well. Instead, asserted this man
of shears and accumen, the modern
man is one whose stomach is above
the belt, meaning in his subtle way
that chest development is now a bet
ter guerdon than a paunch. What the
above is leading to is a remark that a
good many men are taking to golf and
that the three clubs which maintain
courses here will have plenty of play
ers. The years of education that the
pleasures of the putting green and
the long drive outweigh those of the
board are commencing to tell and in
stead of men spending their days in
chairs looking out of the window
when they have leisure they are plan
ning to spend an hour or two on the
links or even to play tennis and base
ball, or at best those who can afford it
are taking automobile rides. How
ever, golf, which offers more oppor
tunity to get rid of surplus flesh and
to furnish amusement at the same
time without the violence of tennis or
baseball, is attracting more people
than ever in this city.
Practically every club's committee is
looking forward to this Spring with
some misgivings because of the man
ner in which men who want to play
golf are announcing the fact and mak
ing bids for the lesson-giving time of
tho professionals. Half a dozen years
ago golfers were a curiosity and now
the man who can play is envied and
people who used the game as a target
for witticisms are now in danger of
becoming objects of the jeers which
greet the dub. The point is that many
people are turning to golf and a real
lively season is anticipated. The
Country Club of Harrisburg and the
Reservoir Park Golf Club have been
contesting for a couple of years for a
cup offered by the late John Y. Boyd
and Frank Payne and as the deciding
match will be played this year it is
eminently fitting that these two clubs
should unite with the Colonial and
get a city trophy which will afford
means for meets of teams from the
three organizations. Such a contest
would be worth while and would add
immensely to the interest in the game
because there is nothing like the
scramble to get on teams and there is
an abundance of material here. The
Country Club is uniting in a four-club
league with the Country Clubs of
York, Lancaster and Reading with a
trophy to be offered for the country
club championship of Central Penn
sylvania. The details of this league
are now being worked out and each
club will have a game at home and
away with each of its rivals. The last
year Harrisburg and York Country
Clubs played a series of three matches,
the third being jHayed off at Balti
more because each had won on its
home grounds. Harrisburg also played
Lancaster. This year with these club
matches nssured there should certainly
be plenty of room for interclub
matches between tho three organ
All three clubs arc working to put
their courses into fine shape. Tho
Reservoir, which has tho reputation
of maintaining an excellent course,
plans to outdo its splendid greens of
last summer and fall and some
changes will also be made. The Co
lonial course, which is only a couple
of years old. is rounding into fine form
and the summer should see it ready
for all comers. It is the longest of the
three courses and its "long holes" are
worth while. The Reservoir and Co
lonial have secured Stewart McEwan,
the professional, for another year and
the Country Club has secured Walter
Dinan, formerly of the Aronomink
Club of Philadelphia, who took hold
to-day and who will supervise im
provements to the grounds. The Luck
now links aro to be thoroughly gone
over and three greens reconstructed
and a number of betterments made,
but opportunity for playing on tem
porary greens will be afforded. Be
cause of the growth of interest in out
door sports the Country Club is also
adding a new building for baths and
lockers which will contain 125 lockers
and be equipped in up-to-date man
ner. the committee in charge having
worked out a plan which embodies
some of the best ideas in similar de
partments of recently built clubhouses.
This building is to be ready in May.
With all of these things going on
and improvements to clubhouses and
grounds being under way the prospects
are bright for much interest in tho
ancient game in Harrisburg, and, to
return to the opening thought, for re
duction of girth.

He was one of the first to get re

places to hungry Democrats. A Pitts

that State and local leaders of the

PANAMA CANAL TOLLS
To the Editor of The Telegraph:
Would you please use your influ

Surely it would not cost as much as

you seem to think, should furnish
canals for the shipping trust, why not
harness shops for the harnessmakers.
If free tolls will enable them toi
transport cheaper, so will free shops
help us to sell cheaper.

to agree with you.

[Our friend at York Spring* evi

be derived by the coastwise shipping
industry. Me might with equal pro
priety argue that the Canadian Paci

heavy tolls for the right to cross the

wants a real reason for our "way of

should be permitted to stand as an ex

seems to be no reason in law or mor
