Great War
Chamber of Commerce and
City Council Arc Work
ing Together
City Council yesterday afternoon
unanimously approved a plan sug
gested by Arnold W. Brunner. the
noted architect in charge of the
Capitol Park developments, and rec
ommended by a committee of the
Harrisburg Chamber of Commerce
for a memorial to Harrisburg and
Dauphin county soldiers, sailors and
marines to be erected at the eastern
approach of the proposed memorial
bridge at State and Thirteenth
The memorial plaza and park
treatment will extend from Thir
teenth in State, almost to Fifteenth
street, and will cost a minimum
of $50,000, which the Chamber pro
poses to finance by means of public
subscriptions. The committee has
been at work on suggestions for a
memorial for many months and at
last put the matter up to Mr. Brun
ner, who suggested the type which :
the committee and council have ap
Of Enduring Granite
The base of the memorial will be j
of granite, as being more lasting j
than marble, and will be circular in !
form with a seat running around the
back to accommodate those who
may desire to rest after a trip over
the proposed bridge or to view the j
Capitol Park extension development,
which will lie in panoramic form
before the eye of the observer from j
that altitude. Around the rear of
this seat will be carved the names j
of famous battles in the war with i
Germany in which Pennsylvania
troops participated.
In the center will be a huge
bronze base, of dignified ornamental j
design, on which will be the proper j
inscriptions. This base will be sur- j
mounted by a steel flagpole, sixty
eight feet high, from which will I
constantly fly a huge American flag.
In the rear the present grassplot
will be transformed into a beauti
ful little formal park with stone
benches, attractive shrubbery ar
tistically arranged, ending in a stone
pillar in the rear. This will be near
ly two blocks in length.
Designed by Brunner
The whole idea was developed by
Mr. Brunner and is his suggestion
as the most appropriate way in
which the city can Join with the
State in adding a local memorial in
conjunction with the great memorial
bridge to be erected by the State.
He pointed out that it would be par
ticularly fitting in view of the fact
that the granite shaft to Jhe mem
ory of Civil War veterans is erected
at the western extremity of the' Ca
pitol development in State street, giv
ing the Commonwealth's bridge and
pylons the center and the city and
county World War memorial the
eastern end. The proposed design,
it is also noted by the architect,
will add a finishing touch to the j
Capitol Park improvements and
give the Allison Hill district a de
velopment in keeping with the fine*
residential district developed there.
Governor Approves
Governor Sproul and the members
of the State Board of Public
Grounds and Buildings were first
shown the sketches and details of
the plan and they most heartily ap- I
proved. The Governor intimated I
that he felt it only proper that the !
city and county memo.rial should be |
located near the State memorial and I
in conjunction with the wonderful
Civic Center which the Common
wealth is spending so much to ere- |
ate for Harrisburg.
Members of the City Planning
Commission to whom the plan was
submitted to-day heartily approved
The Chamber's committee in mak-'
ing public the sketches and outlin
ing the plan, desired to make clear
that it has been acting merely as a
clearing house for suggestions and
that the recommendation which it
makes to the city is not its own
thought but the result of careful
study by Mr. Brunner, who is one
of the noted architects of the coun
try. The committee feels that it
has been fortunate in procuring his
services in view of the importance
of making anything the city may do
along the line of beautificat'on to
harmonize with the State's Capitol
Park plans. Paul Johnston, chair
man; David E. Tracy, J. William
Bowman and Spencer C. Gilbert
constituting the Chamber's commit
tee, have held many meetings and
htave considered many plans but be
lieve by far the hest Is that here
with presented. The beauty of the
designed cannot be gathered from
a small picture and in order that the
people of the city may form a fair
and unbiased opinion of what is
proposed a large sketch of the de
sign In water color and detailed
drawnings of the various parts will
be placed on display In a downtown
window within the next few days.

Erected at 13th and State
Four Quarts of Unreplaceablc
Liquors Also Are
Silverware, highly prized and of
considerable value, as well as a
number of other articles, were
taken from the home of H. J. Wil
liams, 1717 State street, by rob
bers last evening, it was reported to
the Harrisburg police department
to-day. The exact value of the arti
cles taken from the Williams resi
dence could not be stated.
Included among the silverware
taken were one-half dozen knives
and forks in a folder; two dozen
tea spoons, one-half dozen large
table spoons, one-half dozen soup
spoons, four dozen bouillon spoons,
one-half dozen forks, four dozeh af
ter-dinner spoons, two dozen odd
spoons, bearing the names of dif
ferent towns and dates together with
one dozen fruit knives. Some of
the spoons bear initials.
A large basket was taken from the
pantry in which the silverware was
found, presumably to carry it and
the other articles taken away. In
addition were four quarte of vari
ous liquors, including sloe gin, port
wine and blackberry brandy, and one
dozen bananas were taken.
Entrance to the Williams resi
dence was gained through an un
locked pantry window on the first
floor. The window is "never lock
ed," it was reported to the police
In practically every robbery in the
long string reported to police offi
cials within the past several weeks,
entrance has been gained through
unlocked windows of the first floor.
Little if any noise is made in this
manner and the intruders are able
to work entirely undisturbed, police
authorities say. Articles of minor
value have been taken by intruders
in the other cases, and this is the
first time that the booty has been
of any considerable value.
Ten dollars in cash, two $5 bills,
were stolen from the rooms of Mrs.
Ella Haupt, 430 South Thirteenth
street, early this morning. En
trance to the rooms of Mrs. Haupt,
located on the second floor, was
gained through an unlocked window
after climbing a pair of steps lead
ing from the rear yard. The money
was in a pocket of one of Mrs.
Haupt's dresses in a clothes closet.
Efforts were made during the
night to batter open the safe of
B. Abrams & Son, Junk dealers, 824
North Seventh street. After break
ing into the warehouse of the es
tablishment, the intruders passed
into the office and broke off the
combination knob" of the safe by
means of a huge sledge hammer.
Nothing was taken.

"They went on making linen by
millions of yards at 40 to 75 cents
a yard. Then they offered the gov

it back. Their price later went up
to about 25 cents a yard, and it was

Washintgon, July 9.—President

after an absence of four months at
the Peace Conference, to find such
a mass of official business that it
probably will he two weeks before
he can start on his tour of the coun

some time mapping out a program
of work. Most pressing of the many
matters before the President were
the annual appropriation bills re
cently passed by Congress. In con
sidering the agricultural bill, the
Executive had before him many
requests that he veto the measure
because of the order repealing the

London, July 9. Mrs. Arthur
Kliot, better known as Mrs. Mabel
Louise Atherton, divorced wife of
I Colonel Thomas Atherton, was
I found shot this morning in her home
in London, according to the Evening
I Standard this afternoon.
Mrs. Eliot, who was a sister ot
| Sir Aubrey Dean-Paul, some years
| ago sued Raron C'hurstone, then
John Reginald Yarde-Buller, for
I breach of promise. The case creat
jed considerable sensation at the
time. Last April she married Cap
tain Arthur Eliot, a dramatist,
grandson of the late Earl of St.
Mrs. Eliot was Mabel Louise, the
third daughter of Sir Edward Dean-
Paul. She was married to Colonel
Thomas Atherton in 1892. Her hus
band divorced her in 1907, naming
John Reginald Yarde-Buller, now
Baron Churstone as co-respondent.
Mrs. Atherton then sued Mr. Yarde-
Buller for breach of promise and
won her case.
In 1909 Mrs. Atherton, who was a
noted beauty in English society, war
one of the four principals in th'i
sensational Stirling divorce case ir

I of Kippendaire, sued his wife, for
j merly Miss Clara E. Taylor, an
