Lieut-Governor Beidleman
Before Rotary Club Asks
Transfer of Bridge Fund
Lieutenant - Governor Beidleman
during the course of un address as
guest of honor of thfe Harrisburg Ro
tary Club at noon to-day in the
Penn-Harris, made a strong plea
for the transfer of the $300,000 Wal-.
nut street bridge fund to assist the
state in the building of a -great
memorial viaduct at State street.
Mr. Beidleman said that nobody had
worked harder for the Walnut street
bridge when it was ,rst proposed
than he, but now that the much
greater and generally better pian,
which will give the city at least a
$2,000,000 viaduct and 0110 of. the
most beautiful in the, world, he is
doing what lie can to promote the
transfer of the fund. He asked the
support of tlie club and in return
received an outburst of applause,
showing how the members felt.
Mr. Beidleman spoke of the busi
ness administration of Governor
Sproul and the part the state is
playing in the reconstruction pro
gram. He praises the energy of Mr.
Sadler, the new highway commis
sioner, who has started work in
midwinter putting the streets of
Higlispire, and Camp Hill into shape
and is soon to start 011 Paxtang. Mr.
Beidleman also spoke ill behalf of
the consllodation of the Nursery
Home and the Children's Industrial
Homo on a large farm somewhere
outside the city.
Captain E. J. Staokpole, Jr., was
also a guest and in a. brieg address
outlined the work of the Twenty
eighth Division from the Marne to
the point where he was wounded and
put. out of action, lie received an
ovation at the hands of the Rotar
ians, being his first appearance be
fore them since his return from
abroad. The* club was favored by
several excellent solos.

Ejectment Proceedings
Because of Federal laws prohibit

It lie wife, children or other depend
ents of a man in Government serv
ice. Maynard M. Fulton, agent for
Helen ],. Pulton, leasing the house
at -27 Muench stfeet to Mrs. Al
fretta Peifer, petitioned the court
to hear an action he brought to get!
possession of the premises, alleging
that rent totaling $76.50 was due in
violation of terms in the lease.
Mrs. Peifer, it is stated in the pe
tition, claims to be dependent for
support upon a son in the Army. It'
is said, however, that she has an
other son In the city, who is em

[Continued from First Stage,] : ' o
duced by Representative William PI
Rorke, of Philadelphia, would be un
patriotic, un-Christian, the resolution
scathingly declares. Recalling the
patriotic efforts iput forth by tho
churches during the war, the resolu
tion says that the proposed amend
ment would take from the Church's
altars and pews many who are need
ed to be her pillars in the future. .
The promoters of the measure are
severely arraigned for their efforts
the tffrmations of the clergymen.
They already have every afternoon
and evening of the week days, .the
ministers declare, and it would be en
tirely selfish for them to ask for the
Sabbath in addition.
Plans are now being outlined by
th e body to actively fight the meas
ure. These arrangements will be in
charge of the body's executive com
The resolutions are
"The Harrisburg Ministerial Asso
ciation, consisting of 150 ministers in
good standing in accredited churches
and representing a lay membership
of no less than 60.000 souls, most
earnestly protests against the pas
sage of House Bill No. 94, and bill
legalizing Sunday concerts, moving
pictures, etc., for the following rea
"1 Sunday is necessary to the pre
servation of the home. Such laws
would he a blow at the home life of
the state.
"2. That such laws would be un
patriotic. 'Blessed is t(iut nation
whose GoS is the T.ord.' No Sunday,
no sense of God; no sense of God, no
national blessedness and greatness.
"3. Such laws would be un-Chris
tian. This is a Christian nation. "So
says the Supreme Court of the United
States. • Sunday is necessary to keep
our nation Christian.
"4. Such laws would be a blow at
the Church. The Church easily stands
out as the most potent factor in the
winning of th e world-war. She gave
generals and lier young men by the
millions and her wealth by the bil
lions. She prayed the armies of the
United States and her Allies through
to triumph over a foe that would not
go out except also and prirfclpally by
prayer and fasting. Not one phase
of the war did the United States Gov
ernment seek to promote without fer
vently calling to the Church for her
indispensable assistance. These laws
would take from her altars and her
pews many who are needed to be her
pillars in the future.
"As the laws of the slate protect
the game of our forests and tli e Ash
of our streams, we respectfully ask
that the churches of our state be pro
tected to the extent of at least one
day of the week, in order that they
may do the most Important work In
various interests seeking changes in
human life. The promoters of these
our Sunday laws already have every
afternoon and evening of the week
days. To ask for the Sabbath in ad
dition is entirely selfish.
"It is resolved that the Executive
Committee of this Association repre
sent this body at a hearing on these,

the offenses of which he had been
convicted. Bretz was taken to jail
shortly before noon in the custody
of a deputy sheriff.
Oscar G. Wickersham, counsel
for Bretz, suggested to Judge Kun
kel that the disbarment of the law
yer had been sufficient punishment
and that sentence should be sus
pended in the embezzlement case.
District Attorney Michael 10.
.'troup, however, declared that he
considered It a worse offense for an
attorney found to be guilty of- em
bezzling money than for a layman. Tn
replying to Mr. Wickersham's plea,
he said:
"The public and fellow members
of this bar require from this court
that this crime should be treated in
a manner commensurate with the of
fense. Her# is a man versed in the
law and thus should walk in the
straight and narrow path. The pub
lic is more shocked when an attorney
is found to have embezzled, when a
preacher commits a moral offense, or
a banker embezzles than when a lay
mtn falls."
Judge Kunkel before imposing sen
tence reminded Bretz that he had mis
represented facts to his clients in
order to hold the money, and in ap
propriating it li e had betrayed a trust
to his client and his allegiance to the
"When >ou became a member of
this bar," Judge Kunkel went on, ad
dressing Bretz, "you took en oath of
faith to this court and to your clients-
You have not only brought disgrace
upon yourself but to a certain extent
suspicion on other members of this
ba# and a reflection on this court, an
act which cannot be overlooked. We
will take into account that yuu hake
been disbarred as that is a very se
ver® punishment, but it Is necessary
that the sentence Imposed must satis
fy the estimate placed on your ac
tions by the court and bar."

were the characteristics of Roose
velt, which Congressman Ellsworth
| and William D. B. Ainey, who acted
jas chairman, emphasized in their
speeches. At the same time, his
human qualities were brought out
by a. story told hv the Congressman.
It is said that after the death of
his son Quentin in France, it was
thought that Colonel Roosevelt had
been too long engrossed in public
life to suffer keenly at the loss. But
the Btory is told that several days
before his death, his wife had occa
sion to visit (he stable back of the
Roosevelt home at Sagamore Hill.
When she pushed open the door, she
found her husband with his arms
clasped about the pony of his dead
son, and with his head buried in the
shaggy neck, the great American
was weeping.
Roosevelt's Principles
Chairman Ainey in his introduc
tory remarks urged that the prin
ciples of Roosevelt be adhered to
by Americans. ITe declared that
should the idea of the League of Na
tions be discarded, this nation must
stand by its principles and its rights,
and in the hour of victory maintain
the high-minded principles for which
it has fought and won.
Above Petty Emotions
That Ih e memory of Roosevelt will
be Severed and held above all petty
emotions was declared by Congress
man Ellworth. He opened his ad
dress by telling how the people of
Concord voted funds to protect the
stone face of "Tile Old Man of the
Mountains," carved out by the ele
ments in the New Hampshire hills.
"Thus . zealously do Americans
guard the things they revere," said
the Congressman, affirming that
once their opinions are builded up,
nothing can tear them down. It is
in such a spirit, he said, that Amer
l ioans have come to love their ex-
President, with a homage that will
outlast the years.
Roosevelt's high-mindedness In
politics was praised by Mr. Ellsworth.
The speaker declared that from the
time of his entrance to the New
York, Roosevelt never sought an
office as a mere office seeker, but for
reforms he could accomplish. He
told many intimate stories illustrat
ing the ex-President's practical de
mocracy, in liis disregard of class,
race and creed.
A Fighting Spirit
Roosevelt was himself an aggres
sive, fighting spirit, the speaker said,
and deplored the liossibilitv of the
nation's becoming over-civilized. He
feared that the people would become
so enamored of luxury that they
would lose their virile fighting spirit.
He was in favor of a nation's, barking
up its principles of right with all its
force, and was not in favor of the
League of Nations plan.
"If all the Aryans, Semites and oth
er peoples of the white race would
band together into a league of na
tions, still in the future a league
of nations would be formed among
1 the Mongolians and it would be nec.v
essary to fight and have another
league," was the way Congressman
Ellsworth summed up Roosevelt's
opinions on the League of Nations
plan. The Congressman closed his
speech with a summary of Roosevelt's
character, calling him the ablest
American since Lincoln.
Great Hall Decorated
The hall was decorated with Amer
ican flags and ferns, and in the cen
ter of the stage was a large oil paint
ing of Roosevelt, draped with Amer
ican flags. Before the addresses, the
Updegrove Orchestra with Harold
Malsh, violinist, rendered a sacred
i concert. The Pine Street Presbyterian
I quartet sang "What Are These that
i Are Arrayed?" by Stainer, and the
I*. R. K. Glee Club sang, "The King
of Love My Shepherd Is."
The Resolutions Committee of
which Rev. George E. llawes is chair
man, drew up a resolution which will
be sent to Mrs. Roosevelt. The com
mitted also directed that Harrisburg
name a committee to take part on
the National Roosevelt Committee,
which will provide a>suitable memo
rial for the ex-Piesident Roosevelt.
The invocation was offered by the
Rev. Henry W, A. Hanson, the bene
| diction by the Rev. W. M. Stanford,
and taps were sounded by Bugler
Claude K. Davis, of the 61st Aero
Squadron, Middletowji.

past the sixty year mark, but by tM
deeds he wrought, his life was with
out the ending of years.
"He was a college bred man. Th*
best education which he could aca
quire was his. He began liis
equipped with a love for study o<
books, as well as his intense inter
est In men and affairs. Wo trac<
has enreer through the many differ
ent forms, as assemblyman, ranch
man, civil service commissioner, po
lice commissioner, assistant secre
tary of the navy, soldier, governor
vice-president, president, home lover,
traveler, explorer, naturalist, Jour
nalist, author, orator, thinker, states
man and always leader. In each of
these he wrought to the full mea
sure of his energy, and gained a sac
cess which could not gratify a man
of his spirit.
"Being a man of strong personal
ity he excited opposition. The men
who had been leaders In public life
often took exceptions to his ideas
and methods. But he gathered
around him a new group which loy
ally furthered every laudable cause
he espoused. And the people be
lieved in him. He was the idol of
multitudes because they believed
that ho made 'public office a public
trust.' So marked was their faith
that he was made the one exception
of our history, in that ho was made
President by the franchise dt the
Nation after he had rounded out
the term which came to him by the
accident of death of his predecessor.
In office and out, his creek pleased
his fellow men. Human righta
seemed worth more to him than
property rights, whenever these
clashed. He made it his chief aim
to be the servant of the people. His
creed of the "square deal' carried
him, in these recent days, to become
(lie advocate, and exponent of Amer
ica's entrance into the world war.
When the nation did enter he gladly
offered his own services as a soldier
to his country. When this became
impossible the contented himself by
tlnding his Joy in seeing all his sons
enter the conflict. Nothing was too
good, nor too precious, when the
welfare of his beloved people was
.in peril.
"He was a man who possessed the
courage of his convictions. Often
he acted while other men hesitated.
He seemed to get plans almost by
intuition. But no analyses of his
character would be complete without
recognizing him as a God-fearing,
praying man. As truly as that he
was an embodiment ef ideal Amer
icanism, he filled out the lines of
a modern prophet of the Lord.
"We, the citizens of Harrisburg
assembled in a great meeting on the
9th day of February, 1919, desire to
express our great sense of loss in
the passing of this man who was
truly one of America's greatest men
of all history.
/'We desire to offset our tdnderest
sympathy to those who are of the
inner circle of corrowing ones. Way

"We would recommend the ap
