"Kat good food? and plenty of them.
Dieting. in many oases is almost crim

you must have the proper quantity of

Neutralize that acid and your stom-

Officials expressed keen Interest in
official reports from Berlin that the
mediators had asked European powers

Washington. D. C., April 29.—Criti
cism of the Navy Department's with
drawal of the warships from Tampico
was voiced in the Senate to-day. Sena
tor Fall of New Mexico, presented tele
grams from refugees at Galveston, de
scribing conditions at Tampico. An
effort by Senators Reed and Gore to
prevent the reading of the telegrams
The communications stated that the
American vice consul at Tampico nar
rowly escaped lynching and declared
the State Department was withholding
information as to the situation there
The secretary of the navy was vigor
ously criticised.
"Do I understand," asked Senator
Brandegee, "that American citizens
were forced to take refuge on British
and French warships while our ves
sels were nine miles awav?"
• Yes." replied Senator Fall, "our
vessels were riding at anchor nine
miles away while German ships were
protecting our citizens."
"There would be few refugees in
Galveston to-day except for the inter
vention of the English gunboat," was
contained in a telegram from J. B.
"That statement is so absurd, so
wicked and so contemptible as to de
stroy all value of the telegram," de
clared Senator Stone, chairman of tho
foreign relations committee. He also
referred to the mediation plans and
asked if there could be senators who
desired to put a stumbling block in the
way of mediation. Senator Fall stat
ed he had not noticed the phase ob
jected to by Senator Stone and with
drew the entire telegram from the
Senator Sheppard read a newspaper
editorial quoting Admiral Mayo's offi
cial explanation of the withdrawal of
the American warships.
"No doubt that is true," said Senator
Lodge. "1 went to the Navy Depart

had been withdrawn and they said
that the sight ol American ships there
might inflame the mob."

Templars Elevate M. D. Lichliter
to Eminent Commander;
Junior Makes Address
Outside of a few choice instances
found in the history books, it doesn't
often happen that honors are show
eerd upon father and son all in one
evening, but that occurred last night
ut the installation of Pilgrim Com
mandery. No. 11. Knights Templar,
when Mnrcellus D. Lichliter was ele
vtade to eminent commander and his
son. the Rev. Mcllyar H. Lichliter,
of Beusnt Commandery, No. 8, Balti
more, was attended in an inspiring
discourse by the guests and ladies
present. There were about 300 knights
in the hall when, after a reception to
installing officers, the Rev. Har-y X.
Bassler. prelate, pronounced the invo
cation. The intallution of MarceNus
D. Lichliter by William M. Donaldson,
past grand commander, followed; then
William H. H. Baker inducted John
O. Shumberger as. generalissimo. Clyde
P. Love became captain-general. Owen
11. Copelin officiating: Daniel H.
Heisey installed Howard A. Ruther
ford as treasurer; George A. Gorgas
installed N. Frank Matter as recorder.
Installation of appointed officers was
followed by the charge to the com
mandery. delivered by William M.
Donaldson. Proclamation was deliv
ered by Arthur D. Bacon, marshal,
assisted by Francis C. Neely, herald.
An address by the Rev. Lichliter
proved the feature of the evening.
The Baltimore divine spoke on "The
Quest of a New Knighthood." con
trasting the methods of the Crusaders
with the methods of Templars to-day.
To-day the knights go forth to
make safe the road to Jericho" with
out the sword. Slaking safe the road
to Jericho means the elimination of
charity and charitable organizations in
the time to come when the dispensing
of charity will be unnecessarv, a con
dition which true charity seeks to
bring about, the Rev. Mr. Lichliter
dwelt also on the position that Ma
sonry and Templardom occupies in re
spect to the Church. He averred that
it never was the intention to make
Masonry a substitute for the Church,
but that Masonry was to Christianity
a handmaiden, like as a morning star
to the bright sun. The Rev. Mr. Lich
liter s talk was full of pithy and invig
orating expressions and was greatly
appreciated by the Harrisburg knights.
A luncheon and dancing closed the
evening's festivities.

cluded Frederick J. Smith, chairman,

delphia home were conducted by the
Rev. Dr. James Crawford, of Christ
Reformed Church. He made no re
ference to the life of Mr. Baer, conlin
ing himself to the simple funeral ser-
ices of the church. The services oc
cupied a scant half hour.
S|K>oial Train in Waiting
After the family took final leave the
funeral party was formed and pro
ceeded to the Reading Terminal
where a special train was in waiting,
rhe plain hearse without plumes or
frills, conveying the bodv of Mr Baer
stopped on the Market street side of
the big terminal. Traffic and other
activities in the vacinity stopped and
persons hurrying to trains paused as
pallbearers slowly drew the casket
fro mthe hearse and proceeded into
the station.
The carriages containing the mourn
ers drew up at the Terminal in the
Twelfth street side and entered the
building by the side entrance almost
beneath the windows of the office that
had been used by Mr. Baer.
Mrs. Baer, bowed with grief, leaned
on the arm of her widowed daugh
ter. Mrs. Frank Connerd, of Read
ing, as she entered the station.
Bower of Flowers
Dsrpkc tie request of the family
to o.ilii flowers, the Philadelphia
home of the Baers was a bower of
memorial tributes. Noticeable among
the floral offerings was a stand of
American beauty roses almost eight
feet high from the New Jersey Cen
tral railroad. Prom Somerset county,
Pa., where Mr. Baer was born, came
a wreath of flowers, the tribute of the
Bar Association of that county.
During the funeral services at Read
ing all trains on the Reading system
came to a standstill for one minute
at 2 o'clock.
Refugees Tell Pitiful
Tales of Hardships
Washington, D. C., April 29. A late
report from Consul Canada, at Vera
Cruz, says the refugees arriving from
Cordoba told pitiful tales of hardships
inflicted upon them during their Im
prisonment there. After their arrest
they were horded together like cattle
and marched through the public streets
to a small and unsanitary jail. Mean
while angry mobs on all sides threw
fruit, stones and other mis
siles at them and threatened their
lives. Arrived at the jail, they were
crowded into email rooms, forty of the
prisoners belr.g in the same apart

Going Blind, Walked Many
Days at Dizzy Heights
When a stain used to tint plaster
got into his eyes, George, better known
as "Buffalo" Patterson, went nearly
blind, but persisted in keeping on work
ing at bis Job as a hod-carrier. Daily,
with a prayer on his lips, he mounted
wkind-swept scaffolding and walker
across dizzy spaces; liut h<> never slip
ped. Then the eyes got worse, and he
at last had to quit. Patterson lives
with bis wife and mother and four
small kids at 1146 Cumberland street
In humble surroundings. He wants
work now that will enable him tu use
bis strength—and he has a llurculean
frame —and bis knowledge without
having to strain his eyes. The sight of
one eye, it is believed, is irremediably
gone; but he is beginning to see out
of the other. Patterson has been em
ployed bv many contractors through
out the city and is sober and steady and
faithful—and he wants a job.

Rockefeller, Jr., Talks
of Strike Situation
Sfecial to The Telegraph
New York, April 29.—The only point
at issue between the Colorado Fuel
and Iron Company and the miners, so
far as the company is concerned, is
unionizing the miners at the demand
of an outside body, said John D. Rock
efeller, Jr., yesterday in the first state
ment he has made concerning the
Colorado situation.
Mr. Rockefeller said the company
had voluntarily granted all the de
mands of the men long before the
strike was thought of.
When Congressman Foster, chair
man of the House committee on mines
and mining, came to New York Mon
day at the behest of the President to
interview Mr. Rockefeller in the hope
of a solution of the situation, he was
unable to make any suggestion which
did not involve the unionizing of the
mines or the submission of that ques
tion to arbitration. Mr. Rockefeller
will not arbitrate this matter. In his
statement he concludes:
"But there is a final aspect of this
grave matter which deserves more
than all else the attention of the
American public in this crisis: whether
the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company
and the other operators have been
wholly free from blame or not in the
present controversy, the issue now to
be. decided is whether the State, or fail
ing the State, the nation, shall make
good the constitutional guarantee of
law and order."
While playing with some children
at Fifteenth and State streets early
last evening, 23-month-old Edward
Turns, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward
D. Turns, 1419 North street, ran out
into the street in front of an approach
ing trolley and before the car could
be stopped the youngster was picked
up and carried for twenty feet on the
fender. He escaped with no other in
juries than a factured bone In his left
foot and a slight gash on the ankle.

Bury Pet Dog in
Special Steel Casket
In the garden of the residence of
the Misses Wilhelm at Paxtang a
mound is observable to-day. Under
neath the mound is a steel casket.
Within the specially constructed casket
lie the remains of Johnny a beloved
water-spaniel. Johnny died Sunday
and his owners determined to accord
him a substantial resting place. Wish
ing to encase the faithful animal's
body in a suitable casket .they con
sulted with the Harrisburg Manufac
turing and Boiler Company, who sent
a daughtsman to Paxtang. The dead
dog was measured. There were stipu
lations as to the design of the casket.
Yesterday Johnny was put in a casket
of half-inch steel plate measuring
40 by 24 by 12 and weighing 550
pounds, and on the shoulders of stout
carriers was conveyed to the grave
dug in the garden.
Telephones jingled most all day in
the county commissioners' office while
the clerks answered insistent Inquiries

more or less light.
Only two vacancies had to be filled
by the county commissioners. In the
