Tent Will Seat 800 and Pro
gram Compares With Best
* on the Larger Circuits
Camp Hill, Aug. 11. Camp Hill
is completing preparations for its
first annual Chautauqua to be held
August 26 to August 30.
The announcements are to the
effect that the Chautauqua is a
"League of Neighbors," and that is
just what the coming gathering will
be, for it is being financed and ar
ranged entirely by the people of
Camp Hill, who have undertaken a
program that is far and away in ad
vance of what is ordinarily attempted
| by a town of this size. The Chau
. tauqua tent will seat an audience
of 800 and will be watertight so
, that the program will be carried
out rain or shine. Some of the best
attractions on the Chautauqua cir
cuit have been engaged.
The program will include a series
of lectures by noted speakers, con
certs by the 1919 revue company,
the McKinnie Opera Company,
comic operas, a concert by the
Batting-llahler Company, and a
pageant, "The Wop," presented by
the Junior Chautauqua. Among the
lecturers will lie Peter Mac Queen on
"Peace and Heeonstruction," Dr. A.
IS. Turner, on "From the Ground
Up"; Edward Franklfn Reimer, on
"Mr. Emerson Walks Back Home";
Miss Edith Granger, Captain Leslie
w Vickers, on "The Great Crusade and
Afterwards," and Dr. Andrew
Johnson, on "Eli and Dennis." The
program by days will be announced
this week.
Charged with stealing corn from
a war garden, Victor A. Palmer was
arrested this morning. At the time
of his arrest Palmer had several
bags of corn in his possession, which
he is alleged to have taken from
the garden of J. F. Bowers located
near Third and Division streets.

The Mayor's Explanation
The meeting was presided over by
Lieutenant Colonel Edward H.
Schell. At the opening Mayor
Kcister asked privileges to make a
statement regarding the delay in
buying the foodstuffs from Harris
burg. He referred to the complaints
because of other cities buying and
said in part:
"I want to say to gentlemen of the
committee and others that this is the
first time we have had any business
proposition to consider. Heretofore,
we have had only meat prices to bid
on. No canned goods were offered
us. Prices were given at one time
but withdrawn. We were offered to- 1
matoes at one time at $1.38 per
case when they could be bought for I
$1.07, but no other vegetables were I
mentioned. The prices given to me I
this morning and which will be read
to you are the first received on
vegetables. Wo did not buy because
the committee found the prices were
no attraction. To-day we are in a
position to sell to the people of
Harrisburg canned goods and bacon
at prices below present retail
Plan Second Order
Other members of the committee
quoted prices at retail stores and
after a general discussion Mayor
Kcister was authorized to purchase
a supply at the above prices. These
goods will be purchased on terms ]
made public last week. The city will
get the goods without the necessity
of putting up funds, and will have
thirty days in which to pay for
them. If the first order meets with
the approval of the people of Har
risburg and all goods are disposed
of, a second order will be placed.
Goods purchased from the Gov
ernment must be purchased at an
early date, because of the large ship
ments to go west and south. This
morning Lieutenant J. R. Boyle re
ceived an order from the War De
partment to ship to Atlanta, Ga.,
8,248 pounds of bacon, and to Phil- |
adelphia, 871,000 pounds. With the
big orders made public on Satur
day and those of to-day the Reserve
Depot at New Cumberland will be
cleaned out this week. However, I
Lieutenant Boyle has promised Ma
yor Keister that Harrisburg will be
looked after, and if a second order
is probable it can be filled. For
this reason the local committee
hopes there will he a prompt re
ense when goods are placed on
sale Thursday.
