That W. H. Harrington, 211 East
Cross street, Ypsilanti, Mich., whose
badly decomposed body was found
in the Susquehanna river near
Washington street yesterday, com
mitted suicide because he feared ar
rest, is the belief of Harrisburg po
lice officials to-day. The body was
found early yesterday morning and
identified late esterday as that of
Letters addressed to Harrington
from his wife at his Michigan home
indicate that the man had been
contemplating suicide for some time
because he feared arrest on a false
pretense charge. In the letter his
wife begged him not to take his
life, because she believed that
checks passed by him without hav
ing sufficient funds in bank could
be made good.
On April 30 local police officials
received a telegram from Ann Ar
bor, Mich., officials asking that they
place Harrington, who was a travel
ing salesman, under arrest on a
false pretense charge. The tele
gram said that he had been known
to have stopped at a local hotel dur
ing the early part of the month.
Investigation here revealed that
he had left one of the local hotels
on April 13, paying his bill at that
time with a check for $5O, drawn on
the Ypsilanti First National Bank,
which was later returned marked
"no funds." Hotel employes had
not seen him from that time until

I homes just four years from the day
I ! the Lusitania was torpedoed by the
I same Boche which they fought, and
|it is a coincident too that just a.
I year ago to-day these soldiers were
" | on their way to France to meet the
| Germans at that time driving on to
I Paris.
j These boys will never forget the
I rousing farewell given them, when
I with cheers and tears, a countless
II throng saw them off to camp during
e the summer of 1917. There were
more of them then, and the ranks
that are to march over the streets
r late to-day are thinned, for the boys
. from Harrisburg did not shirk their
duty and there are some who paid
the heroic price with their lives.
These men will never be forgotten
s in the momory of the ones at home,
j They gave their lives in the cause of
freedom, and the ones who arc com
f ing back to-day risked their all in
the same battles, saw their com
i rades fall, fell wounded themselves,
i but came through victorious.
Deception to Be Great
That the reception which will be
2 (accorded the men from the city and
5 i vicinity will be the greatest ever held
31 in Harrisburg is a certainty. Less
3 1 than two years ago these heroes
(: were engaged in civilian occupations
iat home, living in peace with their
[ j families.
Then came the ultimatum to
j Germany that the United States
5 1 was to enter in the world war against
' I these autocratic fiends.
Tlie Homecoming
ii The calls for men to support their
-1 flag and country, protect their loved
i j ones, go abroad and fight for victory
.(were answered. Harrisburg's Nation-
I al Guard units, were quickly called to
t! arms, went to a temporary camp at
3 1 Island Park and recruited their
tj ranks to full war strength.

I i 1918, they left for New York to em-
II bark for France. Military regulations
1 j made it necessary to keep definite
-1 news of the departure of the men for

(news came when they reached the
| other side,
i Soon after these same men with
" tile other heroes of the 112 th regi

'■ ing of the war. covering themselves
f with glory because of their heroic
' and untiring fighting.
Now they are coming hack.
Coming HOME.
Mothers Are Anxious
What a home-coming it will be for
those veterans of war-scarred France.
Wives and mothers to greet them with
i open arms and tears of joy. a big re
ception from their many friends in the
city, for every one is a friend to these
| brave men—these are the things which
■ the boys have longed for. waited for,
hoped for. prayed for. as they fought in
| the mud and dense forests in France, as
i they lounged about after the armistice
was signed, and as they steamed across
1 the broad Atlantic, went to Camp Dix.
! and went through the final process of
i demobilization.
With them they will bring a record
I of victorious, heroic deeds and for their
'■ sacrifices they deserve the best that the I
i city can give them. Of course they look
' forward most to the first night with
' their loved ones, but the parade, the
i cheering, applauding throngs will make
them feel convinced that they did not
fight in vain.
Signals Give Warning
Merc words cannot tell the joy of the
return of these men. There will be that
great moment when father and mother
■ will meet son. when a proud wife will
see her husband, when brother anl sis
ter are together .-.gain—and they will all
know that their Months of patient wait-
I ing have not been in vain.

President Wilson's proclamation
calling the extra session follows:
"Whereas public interests re
quire that the Congress of the
United States should he con
vened in extra session at 12
j o'clock noon, on the 19th day
j of May, 1919, to receive such

noon, of which all persons who

To Prepare For Ti-eaty
There was no information at the
White House either as to the prob
able time of the return of the Pres- i
ident from France on the submis
sion of the peace treaty to the Sen
ate, but some administration leaders
believed the President had called the
extra session earlier than had been
anticipated in order that Congress
might perfect its organization and
dispose of the more important appro
priation measures before the treaty
| was ready for consideration.
Soon after the President's procla
mation was made public, Senator
Bodge, of Mass., the Repubhcun lead
er, issued a call for a Republican
I conference to be held May 14 for
j the purpose of perfecting an organi-
I zation in the Senate, and Representa
