Rome, May 28.—Octoganarians
of both sexes participate every
day in Rome in spirited melees
for fresh butter. The fights oc
cur at 6 o'clock each morning
and 7 each evening.
Butter is so scarce in Rome that
when any is put on sale at a
creamery the place is stormed by
buyers. Aged men and women,
girls, boys, persons of all ages,
engage in a scramble for it.
Women have part of their cloth
ing torn off and scream from pain
in the pressure of the mob. They
emerge with disheveled hair and
raging countenances, tirey mad at
the roughness of the others. If
a woman is successful she re
ceives two ounces of butter for
which she pays thirty cents.

tons of marketable product. It was
explained that the company had dis
covered several new pockets of coal
since then that can be mined.
Mr. Sekol fixed the amount of coal
as yet unmined as 65,000,000 tons.
Of this figured that 60 per cent,
could be taken out and of that of
this 60 per cent, only 75 per cent,
would be placed on the market, leav
ing the final total of 29,000,000 tone
which he gave as his revised figure.
Mr. Sekol has spent two weeks on
[ the coal properties, studying acre
: age and tonnage. He will occupy
the coming week figuring on costs
of production, all factors considered,
and the price which the company
gets on the open market, in an ef
fort to find the actual valuations
of the company's holdings.

delphia, made the motion, which was
not objected to.
Protests Heard
Protests against the progress of
legislation in the General Assembly
and demands for development of a
legislative program to be carried out
as rapidly as possible were voiced in
the House to-day by several mem
bers. The speakers declared that
their hopes of the "short business
session" based on inaugural and oth
er speeches had disappeared, and
charges that bills were being need
lessly held up were made.
Mr. Sliowalter, Union, rising to a
question of personal privilege, said
the Legislature had been "marking
time" for five months. "We have
passed an amount of very minor leg
islation and ench bill has cost the
State about $335. We were told there
would be a short business session.
We have been patiently waiting for
a legislative program. We are not
Informed as to what Is to come," said
The Union county member said that
the Governor and Speaker had both
advocated short sessions and that if
there is a program now is the time
to bring It out. He said that the
members of the House were willing
to work, but were all at sea, without
information when adjournment will
come, anxious to cooperate with the
Senate, but not enjoying the con
dence of the Upper House. "Members
are expressing much dissatisfaction.
Let's Ket down to business. Let the
committees report out the important
legislation and let the rag time bills
die. Let us get down to work and
stop wasting time and funds," he
Mr. Wallace, Lawrence, said he was
a long way from home and believed
the time had come when the Senate
should take the House into its con
fidence. The House, he declared was
being laughed at by citizens, and
while he did not advocate reprisals
"unless necessary," he asserted he
felt that the House should, be sup
ported in its efforts to accomplish
Both Messrs. Showalter and Wal
lace said they appreciated the work
of Speaker Spangler and upheld his
insistence on a business program.
Mr. Dunn. Philadelphia, said less
work had been done than he had
kr.own in years, and feared more de
lay, with June 26 looming up as the
date of final adjournment.
Chairman Ramsey, of the Rules
Committee, said that the House had
kept up with the work outlined for
it and had promptly disposed of busi
ness handed to it. While there had
been hopes for adjournment in the
middle of May, it had been impossi
ble he felt that adjournment could
still be worked out June 19.
Mr. Wallace said that he realized
that important legislation affecting
cities and counties was pending, but
that the time to act upon it is at
hand. The Lawrence member said
that in a short time revenue, appro
priation and Senate bills would have
right of way in the House.

There is a possibility that the drug

Famous Regiment of Liberty
Division on the High
Hundreds of Harrlsburg men are
nearing home port to-day and will
soon go Into demobilization camps to
return home within a short time.
Men of this territory are included on
most of the eight transports that are
scheduled to land to-day and to
morrow at various ports.
The Three Hundred Sixteenth Reg
iment of Infantry, made up almost
altogether of Pennsylvanians, and
Including scores of draftees from this
county is of primary concern to the
people of this section. The unit is
aboard three transports which will
land to-day and to-morrow.
The Texan and the Kroonland,
which are scheduled to land to-day
at Philadelphia and New York, re
spectively, and the Antigone, which
is scheduled to land to-morrow at
Newport News. Va., are carrying men
of the unit.
Many men of this section are in
cluded in the Three Hundred Fourth
Engineers, a great part of which is
aboard the Kroonland.
Transports scheduled to land to
day are the Texan, Shoshone and
Kroonland. Those to land to-morrow
are the Santa Rosa, Aeolus, Raysan
der, Antigone and Minnesotan.
A parade of the men in Philadel
phia is now virtually assured. The
Pennsylvanians are being sent to a
large extent to Camp Dix for demobi
lization, and this is expected to prove
a great aid to those arranging for
the celebration in the Quaker City.
No date has been set for the event,
although it is understood that the pa
rade will not interfere with the dis
charge of the men.
The Seventy-ninth Division, dub
bed the Lorraine Cross Division, con
tains a larger number of men from
this section than any other division,
even than the renowned Keystone
division. It is made up largely of
draftees from Pennsylvania, Dela
ware, Maryland and New Jersey.
There are, however, a large number
of volunteers and specially inducted
men in the unit.
