1 Farmer's Protective Association,
Which is holding its sixth annual
convention in the Chestnut Street
Auditorium. P. M. Spangler, of Co

ed vice-president, succeeding Spang

the inspection of ail such boilers
that it be amended so that such in
spection be made compulsory.
A. b. Allen, assistant director" of
state fund for workmen's compensa
tion, made an address in which he

the threshermen's risks. He de
clared that he was given to believe
that the compensation act may be
amended by the present begislature
so that the amount of. an injured
man's claim shall be 66 2-3 per cent,
of his salary instead of 50 per cent.,
as now, and that there likely will be
a reduction in the length of time that
an injured man must wait before
he can receive compensation. The
present period is fourteen days.

er of the associatibn, submitted his

Ovation For Hcldlcnian
l.leutenant-Oovernor Beldleman re-
I ceived a veritable ovation at the
hands of his neighhois and the vis
itors niike. The applause continued
for a full minute, the whole assem
blage rising to greet him. He re
sponded in a brief but happy speech,
yvelcoming the legislators not as
strangers hut as men who come to
be part and parted of tho community
once every two yeais and who are
looked upon during their stay, more
as neighbors than as guests, lie paid
a high tribute to Governor Sproul,
whom he said had been coming to
iHirrisburg for so many years that
lie needed no introduction. He pro
nounced the Governor "the best ex
ecutive Pennsylvania ever has had"
and predicted a wonderfully con
si motive administration.
Governor Sproul also got a rous
ing reception at the hands of the
guests and members who cliacred
and clapped so that he could not pro
ceed with his speech for a time.
The Governor returned the lAeu
tenant-Governor's complimentary re
marks with interest. Ho said ho had
known him for many years and
counted liim as one of his warmest
friends. "If anything of interest to
Harrisburg ever escaped bis notice
iat. [tie Capitol, I don't remember
I what it was." said Governor Sproul.
"It pleases me grc:\lly to see how
well 'lie is received by his friends
and neighbors and he may feel happy
that it is so. You do well to honor
for him for never had any com
munity a more ardent or faithful
champion in tlie halls of the Capitol
than T.icutenant-Governor Bcidle
The Governor recalled that he had
been coming to Harrisburg for 22
years, having served in the Senate
since 1897, lie looks upon the city
as a second home, he continued, for
his treatment here has been uni
formly kind and courteous, lie said
he saw many changes in the city I
since his first coming. In the old
days, he paid, the legislators got the
idea that Harrisburg people thought •
they were a lot of carpetbaggers,
condemned by their own communi- :
ties to spend several months here j
every four years. The entertain- j
ment and "stabling" provided for
j these visitors were on a par with this )
idea, the Governor continued.
But recently there has been a big 1
"change, he noted, and he felt that |
he voiced the sentiment of the guests ,
i when he said that all of them feel 1
at home here now and they believe
that the people of Harrisburg are
doing their best to make their stay
comfortable. The Governor added
that so far as lie is concerned, ho
means to spend most of his time
i during the next four years. He
referred to the building of the Penn-
Harris hotel as an evidence o£ the
recognition of the community of Its
responsibilities and expressed the
belief* that no building anywhere
fills a more important-use than the
Penn-Harris in Harrisburg.
A Businessman
Governor Sproul said that when
he came out of college he turned
toward politics and entered the Sen
ate, but it soon became apparent to
him that if he wanted to make a
living and raise a family he would
have to go into business as a side
line. So he bought a newspaper, and
then found he had to do a lot more
business in order to make the paper
go. And after he had done that
he bought a farm and since has been
spending nearly all his time making
the farm pay. From which, he said,
it might be judged that business was
not secondary by any manner of
means to. politics in his life and that
he naturally viewed the affairs of
state from a businessman's stand
Big Tilings For City
The Governor said the state is
planning big things for Harrisburg.
Among them he outlined the fol
The spending of some mil
lions of dollars in developing
the Capitol Park extension and
in providing office buildings so
that all of the state depart
ments may be lodged under one
The concentration of all state
offices and state employes in
Harrisburg, now scattered over
the state, as rapidly as this city
provides suitable houses for
The centering of all the great
tljrough arteries of travel of the
state highway system about to
be constructed, running from
north to south and east to west,
in Harrisburg.
These improvements to be
made immediately."
Governor Sproul said that the
good roads will be started imme
diately in order to provide work for
thousands who might otherwise be
unemployed and lie. expressed the
belief that few people of this city
realize how vitally the centering here
of the great road systems will affect
the life of the city. He predicted
that the good roads combined with
the good hotel will bring hundreds
of tourists to Harrisburg and that
thousands of people will shortly
come to this state to enjoy the fine
roads and the matchless scenery of
which Pennsylvanians are so proud.
The Capitol Park developments
are to be made as soon as the Legis
lature Can find the money, he said,
and he thought it would be forth
coming in a short time. Pennsyl
vanians believe their Capitol should
have a proper setting, ho continued,
and believed their capital city should
bo as fine a place as any in the
Commonwealth: a municipality to
which they could point with pride.
The policy of the administration, he
said, would bo to bring all of the now
widely scattered state offices to Har
risburg as rapidly as the city can
provldo'the houses.
What the City Can Do
And here the Governor came down
to what he regards as the duty of
the city toward the state.
"And now what will Harrisburg
do ftfr itself?" he asked, and, reply
ing to his own question, he suggest-

One Charge Covers Accept

Passing Unfit Applicant £7
By dssociattd Prtss.
Washington. Feb. 19. Trial
courtmartial of two naval officers In
| connection with charges of bribery
I and graft in the Third naval district
has been ordered by Secretary Dan- :
iels. ■
It was announced to-day that suf
ficient eldence had been submitted
j this mofning in a preliminary re
port by investigators to warrant
these trials Immediately. Secretary
Daniels said at least two other cases
were developing.
No names were made public, but
it was learned that one case involv
ed the acceptance by a naval medi
cal officer of a bribe of SI,OOO for
passing an applicant who was not
physically qualified for the duties he
sought, and another case involved
a bribe of SSOO to secure a detail
which would permit the applicant to
remain at home indefinitely.
' cd that a joint City Hall and Court-,
house and Improvement of housing
conditions in Harrisburg are prime
essentials to which the people of th®
community ought to turn their at
tention at once. That he had struck
a popular chord was very evident
| from the burst of applause with
which tho members of the Chamber
greeted his recommendations.
The present Courthouse is not in
keeping with the size and impor
tance of the city, he said, nor does
it comport with the dignity and
beauty of the public buildings which
the state is erecting here. He rec
ommended that Harrisburg, city and
county authorities get together at
once for the erection of a Joint
building and intimated that the nec
i Cssary legislation for joint action
' would not be difficult to procUre-
I The big asaemblage went wild over
I the suggestion, which is in keeping •
I with agitation that has been devel
i oping in the city and county for
i some time.
Housing Problems
j As to housing, the Governor
j pointed out that the state cannot
I bring its employes now located else
-1 whore to Harrisburg any more rap
| idly than the city will provide
proper houses for them, and he urged
t the Chamber to take up this matter
| seriously and without delay.
All this public and semi-public
i work ought to be gotten under way
as rapidly as possible, the Governor
concluded, so that Pennsylvania
may set an example in the recon
struction period of finding employ
ment in needed improvements for
all those who otherwise might be
out of work.
Never lias a public address made
a deeper impression upon a Harris
burg audience, and following tho
speech, while the guests and mem
bers were lunching in the big ball
room on the second floor, frequent
mention of it was made as providing
the keynote for immediate activity
in the Chamber of Commerce and
city and county official circles.
There was general approval of all
the Governor said. He struck a
popular chord every time he took up
a new subject and outlined as those
w'ho have been studying them have
found them the vital and pressing
needs of Harrisburg.
