This City Example For Others
in Purchase of Liberty
Bonds, Dr. Rowo Says
"Harrisburg stands at Washing
tion as an example for communi
ties elsewhere throughout the Unit
ed States in the matter of Liberty
Bond subscriptions," said Dr. L. S.
Howe, assistant secretary of the
United States Treasury, speaking
before the noon luncheon of the Har
risburg Chamber of Commerce to
day. "And Washington has no
doubt," he continued, "that Harris
burg will in the Fourth Liberty Loan
take one step in advance' of the
place it established when it over
subscribed the third loan."
. Dr. Rowe was introduced to the ]
Chamber by President Andrew S. |
Patterson, as Secretary AlcAdoo's j
chief assistant at Washington. He j
is an authority on finance and has j
spoken in may parts of the coun- ]
try on behalf of the loan. "When I j
was speaking in the South last
spring," he said, "where only one or |
two per cent, of the people had sub- :
scribed, I wished I had with me the j
statistics of Harrisburg and other '
communnties in which the indivld- j
ual subscribers averaged fifty or j
sixty per cent, of the whole popu- i
Should lie Widespread
"One of the best things you have i
done here." Dr. Rowe continued, "is ;
to see to it that a large number of i
people buy bonds." It is not good
for any community, he added, to !
have ail the bonds bought up by a j
few men.
Germany begins to-day its ninth
j Liberty Loan, Dr. Rowe continued,!
and it will be interesting and im- ;
portant to observe the manner in
which ouf own Liberty Loan goes as
compared with the German loan.
The present loan, he said, will regis
ter the opinion of the American
people as to whether they are really
in earnest about the prosecution of
the war to a successful conclusion.
Its success will be noted In Berlin,
the speaker continued, where affairs
in America are being watched even
more closely than developments
along the battle lilies of France, be
cause Germany realises that Amer
ica is the vital factor in this war
ar*l that upon our determination to
go on to a victorious conclusion, as
registered in our subscriptions to
this loan, 'hangs the fate of the con
flict and the hope or despair of the
German military clique to bring
about la German peace.
Taxes Up to the Limit
Dr. Rowe said that the taxes im
posed by i.hc eight-billion bill now
in Congress have been placed as high
as they can be with safety and that
the financing of the war, without
grave danger of financial and indus
trial depression following it, hangs
upon our ability to meet other war
expenses through the medium of
loans. Failure would discourage out
soldiers and cur allies and would
wonderfully hearten the Kaiser. The
government wants the loun dis
tributed as widely as 'possible, he
said, and payments for bonds to be
made out of the savings of the peo
ple. "Save the price of your bonds
out of your earnings," he advised.
"You help the government most
when you economize to invest in its
He also warned the public against
trading bonds for worthless or
doubtful shares in companies and
urged everybody lo hold liis securi
ties at least until the war is over.
Cnptain Bent Speaks
Captain W. G. Bent, of the Royal
British Field Artillery, who though
ten years beyond age, enlisted as a
private the day the war broke out
and huß been in it ever since, going
to France with the "First Hundred
Thousand," was .the second speaker.
He warned the audience again3t un
fale optimism. Germany is still
strong, he said, and hopes to make
peace before she is utterly cruah
■ v.. •'
cel. "Pon'l underestimate the en
emy," he continued. "We have a I
big job ahead of us and it i notj
nearly over. "They say a snake does!
not die until the sun Roes down, and j
T think it is only about halfpast fourj
for the Kaiser."
P. D. Wagoner, the new president!
of the Elliott-Fisher Company, was;
present at a Chamber of Commerce j
luncheon for the first time and was]
introduced hy Mr. Patterson, re
sponding with a brief appeal for the
success of the loan.
Bretz Asks For New Trial
on Ground That Act of
1878 Is Unconstitutional
Attacking the constitutionality of'
the Act of June i 2, 1878, under]
which Harry M. Bretz, lawyer, was|
convicted on charges of embezzle-1
merit as attorney, O. G. Wicker- 1
sham, as his counsel, to-day filed]
motions for new trials in the four!
cases in which the jury returned I
verdicts of guilty.
Mr. Wickersham, In giving his 1
reqson for asking a retrial states
that under the Act of 1878 the term]
"attorney" is used in referring to HI
lawyer acting as agent Tor a Dank I
or other corporation and not in -pri- ]
vate legal business. He declares that!
for tliis reason it does not apply to!
the indictments under which Bretz!
was tried and that they should have!
been (plashed. The court refused to |
quash the indictments when Bretz j
was called for trial and refused a 1
separate trial in each case. These,
points are raised also as reasons for |
a new trial.
The motion for a new trial may j
he listed for the session of argument;
court to he held next Tuesday.

Rig Success Enjoyed by Or
pheum Audiences; Sec
ond Visit Here
Complications, vgri-natured and ex
tending over the greater period of the
two acts of "Oh, Boy," highly satis
| tied a ntirthfpl audience at the Or
j pheum last evening. A full house of
I Harrisburgers went home so highly
pleased with the second production
I of this lively comedy in this city, that
a successful visit might again be made
here with the production,
j Opening up a triile slowly, the first
I few numbers on the program (fragged
[ slightly and received scant commen
| dation trom the critical audience.
I But, by the time the fourth musical
selection had been reached the action
was becoming more lively and win
ning over the audience and from that
I until the end, each part was greeted
I with hearty anplause.
' Miss Marie Carroll, playing as 'Lou
Ellen Carter," gained intimate access
, to the hearts of her hearers, quite na
-1 turally and deservedly so, and carried
i away the greatest applause for her- 1
| self, receiving many encores in her
; musical renditions. Especially did the
I hearers like her presentation of "An
I Old-fashioned Wife," and "Words Are
j Not Needed."
But Miss Anna Wheaton. as "Jackie
I Sampson," an actress, gained almost
j as much applause as the leading wo
man. A difficult part to plav. Miss
Wheaton presented it with all its per
; fections. Her wild antics and esca
; pades did very, very much to keep the
j audience smiling.
Charles Compton, as "George Budd "
, the newly wed, finding himself by
I many complications continually in
"hot water," spends much time in
making explanations and his difficul
ties bring quantities of sideache-pro
ducing laughter. "Jim Marvin," his
weU-meaning friend, played by Hfir
°ld Crane, awakened much interest.
Harry Quealy, as "Briggs," the
valet; Stephen Maley, as "Constable
Slmms; "Jack" Raffael. as "Judge

Public Meeting to Be Held in
November by Rotary Club
to Consider Navigation
.'lajor William 15. Gray, who re
cently voiced the opinion that the
deepening and damming of the Sus
quehanna to make it a navigable
stream could be accomplished at
comparatively small coat, will be in
vited by the Harrlsburg notary Club
to address a public meeting on a
date to suit him in November at
which the project will be discussed
at length.
This decision was reached at a
meeting of the club last evening in
the otilces of John lleathcole. man
ager for the Metropolitan Life In
surance Company, in the Telegraph
building. Mr. Henthcote and David
Shotwell, just returned from Y. M.
C. A. war work in Mesopotamia,
were the speakers. Mr. Heathcote
said that his company had .asked
him and his agents in this city to
sell $200,000 worth of War Saving
Stamps this year, and that he was
pleased to announce that he had
already passed that figure by $7,000
and that the company had asked
him to make the total sales for the
year $400,000. "If you find it im
possible to do this and keen up your
growth in business," the order read,
"it must be the business rather than
the sale of the stamps that suffers.
"Hut Mr. Heathcote and his men
have been able to show good busi
ness results in addition to their
Thrift Stamp sales."
Work in Mesopotamia
Mr. Sliotwell told of the difficul
ties of army life in Mesopotamia,
where the soldiers have to remain
under canvass during the heated
hours of the summer days in order
to escape sunstroke, and of the vast
service the Y. M< C. A. has hc(m
there in keeping up the morale of
the soldiers. "But conditions there
are rapidly Improving," he said.
"The British are building railroads,
roads, canals, churches, houses,
schools and arc rapidly transform
ing the country. They are evidently
there to stay."
The matter of inducing all stores
to open at 9 in the morning and
close not later than 5.30 in the even
ing, in order to conserve fuel, was
discussed by P. G. Diener, David
Cottercl, Captain George F. Luml)
and others, and the Public Affairs
Committee was ordered to take the
matter of general observance of the
new regulations up with the Cham
ber of Commerce in an effort to
bring all merchants into line.

using the remarks of Mr. Wicker
sham as one of the reasons.
Evans was tried twice before
Judge A. W. Johnson, specially pre
siding, and was convicted of first de
gree murder at both trials. At the
first trial it was claimed the court
erred in the charge to the Jury.
Judge Johnson at that time granted
a motion for a new trial and heard
the case a second time during the
criminal court session last week.
Evan's attorneys claim that when
they closed the defense Mr. Wicker
sham remarked: "I am surprised!
Your Honor will excuse me for a
moment." He struck a table or a
chair with his hand, arose and
strode out of the courtroom to an
other room used by attorneys.
Evans' counsel state the jury may
have been prejudiced by that re
mark which to them sccpied to in

In giving other reasons Mr. Ear

While Harrlsburg's brave soldier
lads are rushing the Hinden'iurg
line, their wives and mothers and
sweethearts back here In Harrisburg
are doing lied Cross work as their
way of lighting the Hun. This is the
evidence presented in the monthly
reports of the Shipping Department
and the Women's Bureau of the Har
risburg Chapter, American Red
Cross, made public this morning
over the signatures of Miss- Anne
McCorntick, director, and Mrs. G. H.
Orth, executive secretary. Accord
ing to the reports, Lady Harris pro
duced 30,692 articles during the past
month. It is a record-breaking pro
duction which Rod Cross oitlclals
view with pride. Forty-eight cases
containing 33,119 articles were sent
on their way to the trenches during
Included in this grand total of
materials shipped are everything
from abdominal bands, cotton pads,
front-line parcels, gauze compresses,
to convalescent robes, operating
gowns, hospital hedshirts, pajamas,
underdrawors, comfort bags, hand
kerchiefs, hot water bag qpvers,
pneumonia jackets and weight bags.
Other articles sent include helmets,
ear tabs, socks and wristlets. The
summary of departmental contribu
tions includes the following totals:
Surgical dressings, 28,737; hos
pital supplies, 1,311; soldiers' ar
ticles, 1,604.
In the report of the Women's
Bureau, which has charge of all pro
duction, there is shown a production
of 610 sweaters, 1,539 socks, 33 hel
mets, 267 wristlets, 34 scarfs, 7 robes
and a wash rag as the product of the
knitting department. A total of 7,-

061 straps and buckles, 3,650 shot
bags, 188 heel rings. For the French
and Belgian refugees, 8 layettes,
272 petticoats and 11 pairs of bed
socks were made.
Behind this work are the busy
women working with the grim reso
lution that the Kaiser must be
downed and downed quickly. As an
illustration ol this officials cite just
one instance. At the beginning of
July they were ordered to furnish
3,000 pairs of socks in three months.
Jt w is looked upon by Harrisburg as
an impossibility, but in the three
months just ended, 4,000 pairs went
on their way to the laddies in khaki.
Among the many large allotments
now confronting the workers are two
which must be produced very quick
ly. Under the chairmanship of Mrs.
Walter A. Dearth, workers are busy
on 1,500 comfort bags, while in the
local workrooms a huge order of
cotton bags is keeping the sewers
busy. There is but one thnig lack
ing in Red Cross work, it was ex
plained by an official. That essen
tial is more volunteers. "We need
them every hour of the day! If they
could realize the helpful influence
of the Red Cross they would surely
help us in every way," said the
Authorities Unable
to Identify Prisoner
City commisisoners upon return
ing from their inspection trip to the
piggery of Hagy Brothers, contract
ors for garbage collections in the
city, expressed dissatisfaction be
cause of th econditions existing
there. Some of the officials who
had been to Wilkes-Barre and had
seen the sanitary methods used
there in handling the garbage and
keeping the pens clean showed dis
appointment when they saw the
frame sheds and muddy runways at
the piggery and the bottles, tin cans,
bones and other rubbish scattered
I was badly ruptured while lifting
a trunk several years ugo. Doctors
said my only hope of cure was an
operation. Trusses did me no good,
finally 1 got hold of something that
quickly and completely cured me.
Years have passed and the rupture
has never returned, although I am
doing hard work as a carpenter.
There was no operation, no lost time,
no trouble. 1 have nothing to sell,
but will give full information about
how you may find a complete cure
without operation, if vou write to me,

Better cut out this notice and show it
to any others who are ruptured—you
I may save a life or at least stop the
misery of rupture and the worry and
aanger of an operation.
