hat into the ring in the Seventh
New Jersey congressional district
yesterday in a test of his per
sonal popularity and the headpiece
was knocked into an indescribable
cocked hat before the sun went down.
The Republican who succeeds a Dem
ocrat was elected by a majority of
more than live thousand, a majority
larger for Congress than ever given i
in the Paterson district.
President Wilson deliberately in
vited the issue on his policies and In
stead of an endorsement of his ad
ministration, as he had hoped, the
result is a crushing repudiation of
the theoretical combination now in
the saddle at Washington. All the
power of the national administration
was exerted in favor of James J.
O'Bryne. the Democratic candidate,
but he was deluged by a tremendous
vote of protest in a special election.
Dow H. Drukker winning by more
than two to cne.
President Wilson must accept the
result as a definite and emphatic re
pudiation of his policies in his own
State where the people should know
him bet: and in a district whore one
of his supporters, the late Robert G.
Bremner, defeated the- Republicans
heavily in 1911:.
Drukker made his light 011 a plat
form opposed to the legislation
wrought by the Wilson Administra
tion, while Ct'Bryne called upon the
voters of the district to send him to
Congress as a token of their approval
of the President's policies.
Republicans are coming into their
own. It was inevitable.
Naval officers lamenting over the dry
order should remember that the man
who most frequents the punchbowl
most frequently nasn't the punch.
JAMES SWEENEY. chief of the
State Bureau of Standards, has
received a letter from a Pennsyl
vania farmer complaining bitterly
against the order requiring all berry
boxes used by Pennsylvania producers
and dealers to be of full standard
quart size. This farmer says that he
is "Injured" by the new regulation.
Doubtless he is. Such a farmer
ought to be "injured." But has ho
ever thought how he has "injured"
the public by soiling berries in under
sized boxes? Doubtless not.
The Bureau of Standards, acting
under a recent law of the Legislature,
will prosecute any person found sell
iner from boxes that do not hold a full
luart. There can be no hardship in
this. If it be necessary for the man
who hits been selling from under-sized
receptacles to advance his prices
slightly to meet the change, why no
body will be injured and the con
sumer will be benefited by knowing
absolutely just what he is getting for
his money.
There lias been more misrepre
sentation and petty cheating in the
sale of berries than possibly has been
connected with the marketing of any
other like commodity. The boxes have
been gradually dwindling in size until
now some of them hold little more
than a pint. Hereafter a "box" will
mean something more than tbo bland
assertion of the dealer that it is of
"standard size."
Why not give the unemployed men
work in the cleaning up of your prem
ise?, now that Spring is here and the
natural housecleaning microbe is busy?
Democratic leader of the House
at Washington, has just demon
strated In his campaign for the
United States Senate in Alabama,
where he has been elected over Con
gressman Hobson, that the people of
the South are about as much out of
joint over the Wilson attitude on the
Panama Canal tolls proposition as are
those of other sections of the country.
It was inconceivable that the voters
of the United States would approve
the course of the President in this
controversy. No Chief Magistrate of
the United States has ever been able
to win out on a question involving
patriotism and the material interests
of the nation where he allgtied him
self with a foreign government against
hiu own countrymen.
Even United States Senator Theo
dore Burton, of Ohio, has withdrawn
as a candidate for re-election to the
Senate because he believes his views
on the subject of the Panama Canal
tolls are at variance with those of a
large majority of his constituents. He
therefore prefers to drop out of the
fight rather than take the chances of
defeat at this time.
Xor are the voters of Pennsylvania
unmindful of the fact that the Presi
dent is maintaining an un-American
attitude on this question. Political ob
servers during the last week report a
strong undercurrent of sentiment in
this State against the Palmer-McCor
mick faction as a result of Mr. Pal
mer's support of the President and his
declaration that the latter should have
the blln4 allcgience of liis party with
out regard to the effect of his policies
upon the country at large.
Joseph B. Thompson should make
good as the first captain of police. His
record in former administrations justi
fies the selection. There is also con
siucrable public approval of the reap
pointment of a number of officers who
were dropped in the first flush of the
ripper era of the new commission form
of government.
WHILE Harrisburg is hesitating
about the creation of a shade
tree commission, as provided
by an act of the Legislature
several years ago, other cities are
adopting this regulation so as to save
the shade trees and assure something
like uniformity in their treatment.
Much of the mutilation of tine trees
has resulted from their use by over
head wire companies, but now that
many of the wires are being placed
underground in this city these cor
porations are not so likely to oppose
the shade tree regulation. Just now
the tree butcher is in his glory. He
goes about with his saw and ax and in
a day destroys the work of years. As
suggested by a critic, he knows no
more about trees or how they should
be trimmed, or whether they shoulO
be trimmed at all. than a pig knows
about the Napoleonic wars. He is an
.authorized vandal and the trees he
leaves bleeding and dying in his wake
are silent protests against his ignor
ant policy.
Harrisburg has made such substan
tial progress in every other direction
that there should be no hesitation on
the part .of the authorities in adopting
the shade tree act. Of course, there
will be opposition, as there always is
to every suggestion looking to Im
provement. But many fine shade trees
are now standing mutilated and un
sightly and will always stand as a re
flection upon the tree butcher.
It ought to be apparent to every
thoughtful citizen that the product of
years of growth should be preserved
and protected against the ignorant
cutting and whacking of men who
seem to think that tree-trimming is
simply the removal of the tree.
Real estate values are often fixed
by the number of shade trees, and In
Harrisburg the owners of property
ought- to realize that the planting - of
the right kind of shade trees is going
to enhance beyond measure the actual
market value of their holdings.
It is better to let shade trees alone
than to trim them in a careless or in
different way. If there must be trim
ming, let it be done by some person
who knows how to do it.
Harrisburg is now due for another
elean-up week. A year ago tons and tons
of rubbish and refuse were carted away
from back yards and the premises of
indifferent householders and in view of
what has been uncovered in a suburb
of Pleasant View, it would seem that
the elean-up should extend into ad
jacent districts.
Those noon-day luncheons of the
Chamber of Commerce are proving a
delightful feature of the new business
organization. Guests of the city find in
these luncheons a first-class opportu
nity to loarn more of Harrisburg; and
the more they learn of the city, the
better they like it. .
XGLAXD and other countries of
Europe boast of the low cost of
{P A living there as compared with
America and South America.
Yet in recent years the flood of immi
gration has been persistently from the
old to the new—from free trade coun
tries where the cost of living is com
paratively low to protected America
where the living is high.
Why? Simply because the oppor
tunities here have been greater than
in Europe. The workman much pre
ferred the high wage and the high
living cost to low wages and cheap
prices for the very simple reason that
with wages high he might live as sim
ply as he chose and pocket the saving,
while with wages and prices both low
[ he had little opportunity to save any
thing no matter how poorly he lived.
Strange as it may seem, with a pro
[ tective tariff in force the workman,
with home factories buzzing at top
speed, was able to buy more or save
more in high-priced America than
he was in low-priced Europe—and
that was t(ie reason why he preferred
this country to his own.
The effort to lower prices here by
process of importation has had no
other effect than to cut down tho
output of our own factories and farms.
The new tariff is, therefore, nothing
more or less than a blow at wages. It
is true that the old tariff was too high
in spots. Even its staunchest friends
agreed on that. But the reasonable
remedy was not to discard the system
that made living conditions in this
country better than those in Europe to
an extent that has drawn millions of
Europeans to America.
There is just one way out of our
present trouble —elect men to the next
Congress who will undo as rapidly as
possible the mistakes of those respon
sible for the Underwood bill. We
have had quite enough already of
"Democratic prosperity." Let us seize
the first opportunity of restoring the
industry of the country to its old basis
of prosperity. We are convinced that
there are worse things than high
prices—no wages, for Instance,
The Wilson administration has an
other hope. This time It is that the
wheat crop will be so large that food
prices will be lowered. Evidently it is

The President asked those New Jer
sey Democrats "to pass judgment on
the administration." They did. We

Returns from Illinois indicate that the
women of that State have not become
addicted to the cocktail habit.
Postmaster Frank C. Sites is work
ing out a plan which will in all prob
ability result in the assembling of one
ol' the most unique collections of por
traits in the city. It is his idea to
obtain the likenesses of all of the post
masters of Harrisburg and to group
them together as a part of the records
of this city's post office, which is
rapidly becoming one of the most Im
portant in the State. This plan has
•>ecn in vogue in national and State
governmental offices for generations,
the collections at Washington and on
our own Capitol Hill being not only
interesting but valuable, and recently
-Mayor Royal began a collection of the
portraits of the mayors of Harrisburg.
Mr. Royal has given considerable time
and thought to the work, which neces
sitated far more correspondence and
research than imagined by the man
ivho had never undertaken such a
project. The city's executive found
that relatives of deceased mayors had
moved away and it was only by dint
of persistent work that he was able to
secure likenesses of several mayors of
thirty and forty years ago. City Clerk
.Miller's collection of portraits of the
presidents of Common Council is some
thing unique in the State,' as it is
doubtful if the large cities have a col
lection so complete. Mr. Miller began
the gathering of the portraits when he
became city clerk in the early nineties
and kept at it, overcoming the natural
reluctance of some men to have their
faces appear in public places and
securing others from families of men
who had died. It is Mr. Sites' belief
that he will be able to secure the por
traits of John Wyeth, the early news
paperman and first postmaster of the
city, John Wright, James Peacock,
Isaac G. McKinley, John H. Brandt
and other postmasters of long ago, as
some of their descendants live here
abouts. He has been offered the por
traits of George Bergner and others
of a later generation and before long
this interesting collection will doubt
;ess be complete.
Among visitors to the city yesterday
was Representative M. Clark Watson,
of Indiana county, who camo here to
look after some business and inci
dentally to attend sessions of the hous
ing conference. Mr. Watson was in
charge of the bill to establish the
bureau of housing in the State De
partment of Health and fought the
measure through the Legislature. It
has been commended as one of the
best steps in the direction of bettering
living conditions outside of the larger
cities, which have their own laws. Mr.
Watson is an attorney and one of the
veterans In reform work in the Legis
lature. He will run again.
There is food for thought in the
annual report of the Little Rock Pub
lic Library, just made public. It shows
that during 1913 there were 68,340
books circulated. In this city the cir
culation in three months at the new
Harrisburg Public Library was 32.500
books. Little Rock's library received
a gift of 8.000 books from the library
of one of its prominent men and an
other of 600 medical books. Both
were made special collections in the
library. There were 325 books do
nated. Little Rock is a city of 45,941
Spring is surely here. It could be
told without much effort by noting the
lackadaisical appearance of people in
the streets. Spring garb, flowers and
houseeleaning. But a better sign
than all that of the permanence of
the season of rains and blossoms is
that blackbirds have arrived and are
to be seen flying over the city. The
other evening a flock landed at the
Reservoir, but did not like the fer
tilizer on the grass and moved away.
Another flock was seen in Wildwood.
The city's parks just now furnish
line examples of sowing. Every dav
men can be seen going about with
bags of grass seed, strewing it about
to bring "up the grass in worn places.
The sowing operations attract the no
tice of many youngsters and that has
the effect of keeping away tho birds.
Many bushels of seed are being used
to maintain the grass plots.
The Harrisburg correspondent for a
newspaper in a distant city of tho
State, which journal is not noted for
the undivided support it has given the
Toner administration, got an impor
tant telegram from his paper a few
nights ago which made it imperative
that the correspondent talk with Gov
ernor Tener at the earliest possible
moment. The Executive Mansion was
ignorant of the Governor's where
abouts. Private Secretary Goither was
located, but he couldn't say just where
the Governor was. The Governor
seemed to have dropped out of sight
for the evening. Finally, on toward 11
o'clock, tho anxious newspaper man
got into telephonic communication
with the chief executive.
"Been hunting you everywhere,
Governor," he said. "I've been on the
jump since 8 o'clock."
"I was in my office at the Capitol,"
| replied the Governor.
"Well. I never called there," ad
mitted the correspondent.
"Oh, you fellows get the wrong
point of view." laughed the Governor;
"we work a little bit once in a while,
in spite of what some papers say."

During several years I have given
quite careful study and thought to the
religion of the West, and I cannot see
that It is in conflict at all with our own
philosophy. On the contrary, the
teachings oj Confucius and the doc

alted plane, conceived and promulgate
ed for the betterment of all mankind,
"heathen" and Christion. I know this:
that if my lot were cast in Idngland,
Kranoe. or America 1 should want to
call myself a Christian, for that is the
religion of those countries: and a man
who would order ills life by his tenets
would keep out of troublp' an.l be re-I

According to morning newspapers,
the friends of Michael J. Ryan pro

into which they have thrown the cam
paign of Palmer and McCormick by a
series of tours of the Statu by effective
workers and will have Mr. Ryan visit

has not been settled.

there is a waving of hatchets in places
where the bosses expected things to

been coming over the wires are de
clared by men of the other side to be
written for home consumption. Forty
eight hours after McKean county had
been visted the Ryan people formed
an organization that started work in
every precinct.

Young Nation not being In his usual

what the trouble was. After looking
Young Nation over thoroughly and be

any medicine earned the reputation of

Nation was much tn doubt about this
