    Harrisburg Man Confesses to Killing
LXXXIII— No. 120
Town? and Cities Roundabout
Lavish With Their Enter
Hospitality and Goodfellowship
Mark Journey of Chamber
of Commerce Party
From P. Staff Correspondent
Lancaster, Pa., May £l. Seventy
members of the Harrisburg Chamber
of Commerce went calling: on their
neighbors yesterday and not only
found the latch string: out in York
Haven, York, Wrlghtsvllle, Columbia
and Lancaster, but reception commit
tees on hand to extend the "glad hand"
of welcome. The Harrisburgers left
their cards and were invited to "conio
again." To-day the party will visit
points throughout northern Lancaster
c ounty and will stop at Lebanon for j
lunch and later pay a visit to Hershey:
where the chocolate factory' will be in-1
It has been a delightful and profit
able trip so far—abounding in pleasant
companionship, good fellowship, hos
pitality almost to the point of embar
rassment and nelghborliness of a kind
that ought to be more and more cul
tivated among the cities and towns of
Central Pennsylvania.
Indeed that has been the keynote
n( every speech made during the two
lays' journey and there was more
irator.v developed than many Harris-j
l>urgers might have believed the old i
lown could produce. Friendly rivalry
md neighborly feeling should mark
the relations of York, Lancaster. Leb
inon and Reading, with the smaller
:owns that lie clustered about them,
he speakers one and all decided and
t is likely that the Harrisburg visita
ion will be followed by others of the
■ort in the no distant future.
If anybody nurses the notion that!
ian i&ljurg is not well thought of or j
h*Ti any oi the neighboring towns en
ertain any but the most friendly feel
toward us as a community let him
ake such a little journey as did the
nembers of the Harrisburg Chamber
■esterday. The demonstration was
luite sufficient to warm the hearts of
oval Harrisburgers who believe that
he I'apital City is a good place in
vhich to live and who are jealous of
uir fair reputation In the eyes of the
oiks of neighboring towns.

! One Word in Dispatch Was Misin
terpreted and Sense of Mes
sage Was Reversed
i ! Belief Expressed That Huerta Is
Too Weak to Keep Rebels
From Mexico City
By Associated Press
Niagara Falls, Ont., May 21. i
There is a feeling on the part of the
' principals to the meditation confer- j
ence here that the savage advance of]
the constitutionalist army under Gen- j
eral Villa Inevitably must have a
bearing upon the settlement of the
difficulties between United States and
Huerta's party. When the South j
American meditators withdraw the in- i
vitation they have extended to Gen
eral Carranza to send delegates to the
Niagara Falls conference, because of
i the refusal of the constitutionalist
j leader to agree to an armistice to con
tinue during the sessions, it was stated
that the conference would proceed to
a consideration of questions growing
out of the Tampico incident and sub
sequently causes of irratlon between
the Mexican federal army and the
American military forces. Official re
ports coming yesterday from consti
tutionalist sources reciting the victor
ies of Villa and his army in the Sal
tillo campaign have convicted the
Mexican representatives here that
Huerta's foes cannot be stopped. |
moreover, the execution of a federal
I General and his entire staff of 32 men
by Villa has impressed upon them the
fact that leaders of the federal army
cannot hope for mercy if they fall in
to the hands of the constitutionalists, i
All this has been changed by Villa's |
successes. The federal forces Tuesday
exhibited no love of fight and the lead-
I ers are not expected to offer the stub
; born resistance that marked so many
jof the engagements with the army
j steadily advancing upon the Mexican
capital, as a result Huerta's support
ers fear that he may not await the
outcome of the meditation.
Huerta Is Too Weak
if Villa and his forces are kept out
of Mexico City, according to belief
i here, it will not be because Huerta is
strong enough to deny entrance to his
enemies. Such as advent can be
avoided, it is said, by speedy solution
of the problem confronting the A. B.
C. mediators, and few believe this is
to be possible except through the
prompt and complete capitulation of
Huerta to all the demands of the
Washington government.
Much interest is displayed here in
an explanation circulated to-day re-,
specting he erronous dispatch of'
yesterday saying Huerta would retire, j
As received the dispatch read: "Huerta j
gave out statement saying he author
ized peace delegates to offer resig
nation, if necessary to arrange peace."
Correspondents of "The Associated
Press" in Mexico were immediately
cabled to send Huerta's verbatim
statement whicl. order disclosed after
several hours that the word "denying" i
had been received "saying" and that I
the sense of the dispatch had been re
i versed by this error. As filed the de-
I spatch was a denial by Huerta that he
| had authorised his delegates to agree

Up Tremendous Majorities
in the State
Philadelphia, May 21. Returns
more or less complete of the vote for
Supreme Court judge from 31 out of
67 counties put Judge Kunkel slightly
ahead of Judge Endlich. The vote is:
j Kunkel 56,231; Endlich 55,801.
■ In some counties the returns were
sealed without being computed and It
will be necessary to wait uptil the of
ficial count is completed nefore the
vote for some of the candidates will
be known.
I The returns received include Phila
delphia, Allegheny and the home coun
ties of Kunkel and Endlich.
Much difficulty is being experienced
in obtaining returns in advance of the
official county, the figures secured be
ing incomplete in many instances.
Official counts start to-morrow in
tlie counties of the State and the offi
cial returns will then be filed at the
Capitol where the results will be com
The results of the State-wide pri
maries on Tuesday stand practically as
given yesterday. Boies Penrose's plu
i rality over J. Benjamin Dimniick, of
Scranton, for the Republican nomina
tion for United States Senator will
probably exceed 125,000. Dimniick
carried Lackawanna, Union. Wyoming.
Luzerne, Mifflin and Westmoreland
i counties.
I A. Mitchell Palmer's victory over
Henry Budd for the Democratic nomi- j
nation for United States Senator was
quite as overwhelming. Budd car
ried but two counties, Philadelphia and]
Dr. Martin G. Brumbaugh's lead
over his three opponents for the Re
publican nomination for governor is
tremendous. Th?ir combined vote is
less than half the. total cast for the
popular school official.
Vance C. McCormick s plurality over
City Solicitor Michael J. Ryan, of Phil-i
ndelphla. for the Democratic nomina
tion is roughly estimated at 25,000.
The Harrisburg ex-mayor's friends
claim fifty-two counties for him with
out doubt. Some of the counties which
it appears Ryan probably carried, be
t'des Philadelphia, are Luzerne, Alle
i pheny, Northampton, Lackawanna,
! Bucks, Clinton, Erie and Carbon.
Up to midnight iast night only forty
two counties had reported returns on
the McCormick-Ryan fight. These
showed a total for McCormick of 73,-
689 and for Ryan of 54,553, a major
ity of more than 19,000 for the win
ning candidate. The returns from
Lackawanna, Luzerne and Schuylkill
counties will reduce this, but it is ex
pected that other missing counties will
more than make up the loss.

When tlio Vaterland was headed in
