land county officials are surprise'd at
the heavy registration of men on

Counsel Employed to
Fight Trolley Increase
Camp Hill, -Pa., Sept. 14.—Plans
for an organized fight against the
proposed increase in trolley rates
by the Valley Railways Company
were discussed at a meeting of the
representatives of the various West
Shore boroughs and the West Shore
! Firemen's Union. The meeting was
presided over by H. C. Zacharias, of
| Camp Hill.
, Ex-Congressman Arthur E. Rup
ley will represent the towns of West

marked by any excitement. The
Palmer-McCormick faction was
heavily represented and had as bas
tions Joseph F. Guffey, late candi
date for the gubernatorial honors;
ex-State Treasurer William H. Berry,
John F. Short, the new United States
marshal, and various other federal
| officials.
i The fact that the Bonniwell peo
| pie did not have any fighters of the
j first grade like William J. Brennen,
] Judge John M. Garman and others
I was rather disappointing to the gath
j ering which came primed for a scrap
! that would loom big even in recent
| tempestuous Democratic history.
The meeting was held up because
; some of the leaders wanted to have
I some confabs and to allow National
i Chairman Vance C. McCormick to
I get to the hall.
Candidates Steer Clear
It was away behind the hour when
I the meeting began. It was noticeable
that Democratic congressional and
! legislative candidates gave the hall
j a wide berth. Quite a number of
! postmasters could not get here.
! However they can still contribute to
| campaign funds at any time.
Rupp Conies Late
Lawrence H. Rupp, of Allentown,
j the new Democratic State Chairman,
! assumed his official place when he
] called the meeting to order and
asked for proxies. He was half an
hour late but made a speech of a
, sort.
The new State Chairman thanked
the committee for his election in his
absence and lauded the Democratic
conduct of national affairs, predict
ing that the American flag would be
carried across the Rhine. Demo
cratic National Chairman McCor
mick and other party leaders were
| present.
i Ninety members responded to the
! call, twenty-eight of them proxies.
Parke H. Davis, of Easton, pre
> sented the draft of the platform,
! every reference to President Wilson
t being applauded vigorously. The
! platform was adopted, without com
ment or a dissenting vote.
•Dodges Prohibition
The platforyi recommended by the
platform committee does not contain
any reference to prohibition and
j does not mention Judge Bonniwell
* by name. It calls for support of "can
! didates of the Democratic party in
! the State of Pennsylvania," and aft
er a strong endorsement of the Pres
| ident calls for election of Democratic
j Congressmen to support him. Friends
I of prohibition*are astonished at this
side-stepping of the "dry" plank,
especially as the Palmer-McCormick
objections to Bonniwell have been
chiefly that he is "wet."
| The salient features of the plat
form are:
Endorsement of President Wilson.
Commendation of Congress.
J Democracy's leadership in the war.
Full support of our soldiers and
Democracy's labor record.
Advocate ,of a minimum wage
I' commission.
Commendation of the system of
profit sharing in production by labor.
I Extension of the Pennsylvania
compensation law.
Complete political enfranchise
ment and equality for women.
Establishment of public trade and

As to Supreme Court
C. E. Gilmore, Williamspgrt, pre
sented a resolution directitg the state
executive committee to uonfer with
Democratic aspirants for the Su
preme Court so that an agreement
can be made whereby one Demo
crat shall become a candidate and
the spirit of minority representation
on the court be maintained. Charles
P. Donnelly, Philadelphia, seconded
the resolution and it was adopted
without any debate.
Chairman Rupp then stated that
he had sent to Judge Bonniwell the
charges made by A. Mitenell Palmer
and the notice to the gubernatorial
candidate to appear at the meeting
to-day. Mr. Davies then offered a
resolution reciting that the commit
tee believed the charges true and that
it pledges Its support to all candi
dates except Bonniwell.
The Resolution
The resolution he said came frcm
the resolutions committee- It was
as follows:
"Whereas, at the last meeting of
this committee specific charges wero
made against the nominee for gover
nor on the Democratic ticket reflect
ing upon the methods employed to
procure his nomination and upon his
integrity us a candidate, and notice
was formally given requesting him to
answer said charges before this com
mittee chosen by the Democratic
voters of the state to represent the
Democratic party, and
"Whereas, the said candidate has
failed to appear before this commit
tee to answer said charges but has
persistently repudiated its authority
and denied its powers, and has mail
ed to each member a statement pur
porting to be an answer to said
charges, and upon careful considera
tion thereof and all the facts this
committee finds that the charges so
made are true, and
"Whereas, this committee believes
that at this critical hour it is of
vital importance to support our Pres
ident by the election of candidates
in sympathy with the administration
and by the presentation to the peo
ple of such party candidates as are
manifestly loyal to the party and its
"Now be it resolved, that this com
mittee pledges itself to the support
of our candidates for lieutenant
governor, for secretary of internal
affairs, for congressmen-at-large. for
Congress, and for other state and lo
cal offices, and to the use of all hon
est and honorable means to procure
their election to office."
William H. Kerry. ex-State Treas
urer and a candtdate for Governor in
1910, spoke on the resolution at
length, making a strong deelaration
on national prohibition. Mr. ierry
praised the President and "William J.
Bryan and asserted that he did not
believe what was said against A.
Mitchell Palmer and Vance C. Mc-
Corntick. He said their conduct of
party affairs was infinitely superior
to what had gone before or was in
Berry Assails Bonniwell
Mr. Berry assailed Judge Bonnl
well and protested against the
gubernatorial candidate's attacks on
party leaders and demand that J.
Washington Logue retire from the
ticket as a candidate for Lieutenant
Governor. He closed by saying
Judge Bonniwell should not he al
lowed to take "a booze bath in the
sanctuary of Democracy."
Mr. Palmer followed Mr. Berry.
The national committeeman said
that Judge Bonniwell devoted two
pages of ui3 answer to the issue and
ten to abuse of McCormick and him
self. What the judge said about
him were lefuted "musty slanders,"
said Mr. Palmer, who remarked in
passing that in spite of them he had
never been defeated. Disclaiming
any political ambitions. Palmer said
all he wanted to do was capture Ger
man property.
Comnvvt knowledge, said Mr. Pal
mer, was that the statements he htd
made about Bonniwell and Sinnot
were true. Sinnet, he said, did not
! deny calling on him.
Mr. Palmer analyzed the charges
and the answer at length and said
Sirinot had gone to two Democrats
beside the judge seeking them to be
a candidate for governor and that
they had "indignantly refused."
The $54,000 estimated to have been
spent on the Bonniwell letters. Mr.
Palmer sail was not accounted for
He went on to say that he was con
vinced that Smnot had told him the
truth. He reiterated charges of the
Penrose influence.
Brewers Pro-German
"The facts will soon appear that
12 or 15 German brewers in associa
tion with the United States Brewers'
Association, furnshed the money
several hundred thousands of dollars
—to buy a big newspaper in one of
the chief cities of the country." eaid
Mr. Palmer, who went on to say that
the machinations had been going on
at Washington. The organized liquor
traffic has been "vicious" and "un
patriotic," he charged, because it has
tostered the associations that labor
ed to keep German immigrants from
becoming Americans.
Palmer closed with a denunciation
of Senator Penrose, accusing him of
being allied with the organized liquor
traffic. When he finished a man
arose in the audience and declared
Palmer was "honest" and that he
should not be criticised for appoint
ments of liquor custodians.
National Chairman McCormick
declared Bonniwell acted while here
as though he was nottrying to lead
the Democratic party, but to tear it
The Bonniwell "Salient"
"We've had a salient driven into
our lines. The salient was driven in
but as sure as Pershing is pinching
off the St. Mihiel salient we'll pinch
this off, too," said McCormick. The
chairman said the proceedings un
der way were "disgraceful" and that
the Democrats should go home and
tell the people what it means. He
closed by a plea for election of
Democratic Congress.
Park H. Davis mado a few re
marks calling on Democrats to
cleanse their ptfrty temple and the
resolution was adopted with only two
Ralph E. Smith, Pittsburgh,
moved that the committee urge that
William H. Berry be voted for by
stickers for Governor, but Chairman
Rupp called his attention to the fact
that all resolutions had to go to the
resolutions committee. Mr. Smith
did not press the motion.
August Wittman, of Erie, de
clared the committeemen should go
home and work for election of Con
gressmen. The chairman then said
that there was nothing before tho
commitee and some one quickly
made a motion to adjourn. The mo
tion carried "and tho meeting closed.

Change System For Handling
Trains on the Middle
Four dispatchers are now handltng | 1
trains on the Middle Division between ' 1
Altoona and Harrisburg. The division j
train wire has been cut into four sec
tions with the divisions at Peters- J
burg. Longfellow and Van Dyke. This j ,
means that every train passing over' j
the Middle Division will be handled .
by four sets of train dispatchers with | :
two sets of chiefs in the background , i
to whom all points in question are
referred for final decision.
These men issue all orders and In- <
structions to trainmen which guides i
them safely over the 132 miles of ,
track from Harrisburg to Altoona and 1
the reverse, and It is some big job.
To the lay mind there is very little 1
necessity in sitting at a Morse or tele- i <
Phone wire directing the movement j I
?: , tri V ns by telegraph or telephone. ,
It looks easy and it is easy after you
get a score or so years of experience. .
Keep Close Records i
These men keep a close record of I
every train as It passes each signal
tower or block station on their terri
tory and this puts them in close touch
with any train at any time. It is
their duty to weave passenger trains
in and out from one track to another '
in order to pass them around freight |
trains with as little delay as pos
sible. The second consideration is to '
get fast freight around slow freight
with like dispatch. Third, they must
get slow freight around locals, bal
last trains, section gangs and other
obstructions without causing them to
come to a stop, as it means something
to start one of those 100-car trains, j
especially on a grade or curve.
This only covers the movement of I
trains on the straight tracks and in
the direction of the current of the |
traffic and in times of congestion, '
wrecks and other obstructions their
duties are doubled. The present
move was made necessary owing to 1
the intensive operation of traffic un
der government ownership and is
money well expended in the interest
of the war and incidentally the peo
ple. Among the recent promotions to
this position are: H. C. Sellers, for
merly of Mlllerstown; S. B. Martz.
