    E. Z. GROSS, OUT
Attack by City Cduimissioner j
Is I'nwarrantcd. Savs

Chief Executive
Mayor Keister yesterday re
fused to discuss the political aspect
of the attack or E. Z. Gross. City |
'Commissioner, who Wednesday night
slammed the police department for;
what he alleged to be the failure!
to round up persons who turn in j
fa'se alarms.
Gross is quoted as saying that the j
police department "let the
take its own course, as it does with j
the other things brought to its at- I
Mayor Keister said that the state
ment is unwarranted, and that the
farts in the case show Gross to Jiave ]
spoken without knowing what he j
was talking about. He said the po- j
lice records would show that arrests]
have been made on the charge of! 1
turning in false alarms. The. records ]
show that the last arrest was niade I
October 9. . The Mayor said a few J
•minutes after that arrest was made.! l
another false alarm was turned in j 1
and that his police have been on the j 1
watch ever since to apprehend such ]
disorderly characters. He admitted ;
no one has been arrested on the j
charge since, atid added that it is p
very hard to apprehend such of- .
fepders. |.
The rumor is current among the t
policemen at the Mayor's office, and ] ]
on the streets, the Mayor's friends ,
say, that Gross wants to discredit (
the Mayor so as to give his own
campaign for the Mayoralty a beU 1
ter impetus. The Mayor refused to
comment upon this aspect of tAe I
case, merely reiterating that Gross'
attack was unwarranted in view of
the facts. 4
Gross' Slain
Commissioner Gross when he j
'earned of the Mayor's statement j
that he did not know the .facts about I ]
false alarms, said: "Records of the [
lire department show that since De- !
cember 18 there have been five false:'
alarms. Not one arrest has been j
made. These alarms are turned in.
1 believe, by mischievous youths, I
from fourteen to about twenty years '
of age.
''False alarms do not cost the
so much to operate the fire appa
ratus. but they do endanger the lives
and property of the residents. Every- |
one knows that when a motor-driven
fire truck comes tearing down the ,
street that traffic dangers are great- J
ly increased. Then. too. there is al- ,
wavs the danger of a smashup be- i ]
cause' a few reckless drivers of other ! i
vehicles will get in the way of the
approaching trucks. The firemen are ;
willipg to do their best to save prop- !
crty. hut it is certainly discouraging ,
to run so many risks, be aroused at!

■ Commissioner Gross made no com- j
ment about his candidacy. He has,]
asked his friends for support, how- j i
ever, and privately declared that j
"his hat is in the ring.''
The Official King
Investigation of lire department j
records shows that since December j
18 there have been five false alarms,
as follow: December 18, evening.

and Hanna strets. 12.02 t*'clock; Jan

Fire Chief John C.*Kindler de-1
clared that during the last few j
months two and three false alarms!
have bee nturned in, while a few j
years ago there were seldom more j
than that many in a year. His only j
remark about the situation was i
"Something should be done to stop it. |

Mayor Keister stands firm in his
determination to conduct no investi-:
gation of the alleged irregularities)
of the policemen and officials, as
charged by Theodore A. Magnelli. l
the discharged policemen. He said I
Magnelli's charges were only rtatur-l
al. coming from a policeman who!
was vindictive because of losing his;
Joh. . '
In spite of this stand by the may
or. the opinion persists that the
charges must have a foundation ofj
fact behind tliem, and that a thor-j
ough investigation to prove them or
disprove them, should ve started atl
once. It is generally felt that so!
many rumors of a nasty character
have been prevalentn during the last!
year and a half, that in justice to|
the conscientious members of the
force, they should be proved or dis

department that the three boys who

Charles Plez. director general of the ;
Emergency Fleet Corporation, said j
yesterday. . H .i referied particularly,
the situation at Seattle, where he '

and at San Francisco, where he said !
it was reported workers in two !
trades intended to go out shortly and
tie up all the work in the district, i
Mr. Piez declared most of the
yards needed a breathing spell, that
he did not think the government j J
would continue to furnish work at ;
extremely high wages unless increas- ] ,
ed skill and output iustified it. and !
that in hUs view it was highly un- ) '
wise for shipyard workers in their:
own interests to call strikes at ex- ! '

Famous Fighting Keystone
• Division to Be Perpetuated
After War
The wish that the Keystone
Division be reorganized Into the
National Guard of Pennsylvania
has beep expressed often by
members of the now famous alul
battle-scarred unit.
In this manner t lie brilliant |
history of tlc Iron Men inny l>c

Few divisions, America.l or al
lied. made such n splendid record
on the Held of battle as did the
men from Pennsylvania.. It is j
recorded they never gave ground
and never stopped fighting until
every objective had been won.
The bright red Keystone the men
now wear on their arms at the
recommendation of General Per
shing is one of tlic honor murks
of the great War.
"War Department officials are in
favor of the old names and numbers '
of the regiments of the National |
Guard of Pennsylvania luting re- I

Much Rheumatism
local Druggist's No-Cure No-Cay
Offer Attracts Many Sufferers
1 If there are any rheumatic suf
ferers in town who have not availed
themselves of Kennedy's generous]
offer the.v should do so at once. ,
Kennedy's* Drug S'tore states
that if Rheuma. the guaranteed pre-!
scription for rheumatism, does not]
give any purchaser quick and joyful!
relief, Kennedy's Drug Store will
leturn the purchase price without)
anj quibbling or red tape.
Rheumatism is a dangerous dis-.
ease, and anyone who has the slight-'
est taint of it should drive it out of!
1 the system as soon as possible. Head 1
what Rheuma did for this sufferer: ,
'I have been laid up for one year)
with chronic arthritis. I had doctors
galore, also spent four months in;
the sanitarium hofepital at Troy. N.
Y., but had practically no relief. Then
1 started taking Rheuma. I have!
now taken five bottles, and can go]
without crutches or other aid, which!
) I could not do for the, last nine!
i months. 1 highly recommend it. and]
would gladly answer any questions
asked, on receipt of stamp for post
age. This letter may be published as:

tisnt in any form."—Thomas H. :
Eddy, Schuylerville, N. Y.
Good druggists everywhere sell
Rheuma. and a, large bottle is inex-v

the chief of the militia bureau and !
other officers.
"We have all the authority needed
now for reorganization of the Guard
and absorption or the Reserve Mill- 1
tia into the new Guard," continued
the Adjutant General, "if the 2Sth
comes home this spring we will not
ask any legislation to Increase the
Militia because it would be absorb
ed, but if there is uncertainty about
it we will seek the right to add a
couple of regiments until the reor
ganization lakes place."
General Heuvey, chief of the bu
reau of militia affairs, is favorable
to withholding the gradUul increase
of state strength under the national
defense act because it would require
this state to have 30,100 men in
1920. For the present the strength
will be on the scale of 200 men for
each repersentative in Congress. This
would give 7.200 men. The Reserve
Militia contains 3,200 men. The
Guard contained 1,1,000 men In 1916
and 16.500 in 1917.

10th Anniversary and
February Furniture Sale
Double reductions on nearly everything in our
store. A wonderful opportunity for Home Furnish
ers to provide their needs in our lines at extraordi
nary low prices.
Just ten years ago this store was opened in a very modest way and
in rather limited quarters. A fixed policy of square, honest business
methods has built the business up gradually until at the present time it
is one of the largest, if not the largest, and most complete Furniture
and Home Furnishing establishment in Harrisburg, utilizing 19,000
sq. ft. of floor space to show our goods.
This being our 10th Anniversary we felt the necessity of doing
something in the shape of celebrating a successful business. The event
coming at the same time as our Annual February Furniture Sale com
plicated matters somewhat for us. We hardly felt ourselves able to af
ford two reduction sales owing to our unalterable rule of adhering
strictly to every representation made in connection with our business.
We finally decided to apply an extraordinary large reduction on all
our goods during the entire month of February and call it our 10th Anni
versary and February Furniture Sale.
This reduction will place our vast stock of Furniture, Rugs, etc., be
fore the people this month at prices that it is fair to say will not be
equalled in other stores in the city.
It will pay you to anticipate your needs early in the sale.
