"Only Remedy For Most Out
rageous Piece of Profiteer
ing," Senator Declares
By Associated Press.
Washington, Aug. 13.— Federal
regulation of coUl storage of food
was urged in the Senate to-day b>
Senator McKellar, Democrat, of
Tennessee, as a certain means of re
ducing the cost of living and as the
only remedy for "the most outrage
ous piece of profiteering that can ho
'"lpeakfng in support of his bill,
first introduced in 1913 and now re
introduced before the Senate llnter
state Commerce subcommittee con
sidering high cost of living recom
mendations of President Wilson.
Senator McKellar said it the b.l.
had been passed in 1913 he felt sure
the present conditions as to exces
sive living cost would not exist.
The meat packers were charged
by the Tennessee Senator with using
cold storage facilities to fix
rr -Tt S is being used by the packers,"
he said, for the purpose of con
trolling prices. As used by the pack
ers, it preserves '" seasons of plent>
and permits them to withhold such
large quantities of foodstuffs from
the market as to make a season of
scarcity at any time thoy see fit. and
thus they increase the puce to
consuming public."
Opposed by Packers
Explaining his bill. Senator Mc-
Kellar said it would limit the time

"SS.. ■v. hKl £;j
to cet any action on this bill,
Mr. McKellar, "but I am
ed to believe that

storage in any way. but it reflates
it so that the people can get tl.e
very best benefits out of it.
Pitinir recent statistics of the

Kellar said they showed Mist in

McKellar. "is making 66 2-3 P*r

possible way in which these Prices
can be manipulated is
medium of cold storage. Put a find

compelled to sell."
Eggs particularly, he asserted, are
monopolized. They are hi the hands
of the most gigantic monopoly
is in the wofld, he said. The P rl " , r
the packers pay and the price at
which they are sold is out of aj.
proportion, and they never will
come down until eggs are stamped
and regulated."
Present cold storage practices aloo
are a menace to public health. Sen
ator McKellar declared, asserting
that meat and poultry often are
held too long in storage. Chickens,
he asserted, are killed and stored
without removal of their heads and
entrails, which conduce to quick
putrefaction after they are taken
from storage.

Ilitter Argument
During the debate, which was in
executive session, it was reported
members bad a bitter argument. Sen
ator Fall, Republican, declaring that
Senator Hitchcock and others had
questioned the motives of the Repub
licans and made unfair reflections on
the committoe's course. Senator Hitch
cock was said to have replied with
equal vigor.
It was said Senator Hitchcock told
the committee there was an increas
ing demand in the Senate and
throughout the country that the
Treaty bo disposed of and that he ex
pressed the belief that virtually
every Senator already had made up
his mind how he would vote.
Senator Lodge is understood to have
replied that he also favored action
as soon us practicable, but that so
far there had been no avoidable de
lay In the Treaty's consideration.
Senator Fall expressed the opinion
that to hasten ratification would bo
unwise, as settlements to which the
Ttnited States would be asked to as
sent still were to be determined in
other treaties not yet in the hands of
the Senate.
il'he discussion in the committee
was interpreted as related to the in
sistance for action by the group of
Republican Senators vho have agreed
on a reservation program which they
believe will have the ultimate assent
of the Democratic, leaders. They also
expect that in their plan they will
have the co-operation also of Chair
man Lodge.
The community sing scheduled for
to-night at Front and Conoy streets
has been postponed unil Monday
evening at 8 o'clock. Mrs. Flor

Doctor Tells How To Strengthen
Eyesight 50 per cent In One
Week's Time In Many Instances

Philadelphia, Pa. Do you wear trias-
Sea? Are you a victim of eye strain or
other eye weaknesses? If so, you will
be glad to know that according to Dr
Lewis there is real hope for you. Many
whose eys were failing say they
have had their eyes restored through
the principle of this wonderful free
prescription. One man says, after
trying it: "I was almost blind; could
not see to read at all. Now X can
read everything without any glasses
and my eyes do not water any more.
At night they would pain dreadfully;
now they feel fine all the time. It was
like a miracle to me." A lady who
used it says; "The atmosphere seem
sd hazy with or without glasses, but
after using this perscription for fif
teen days everything seems clear. I
can even read tine print without
glasses." It is believed that thou
nands who wear glasses can now dis
card them in a reasonable time and
multitudes more will be able to
strengthen their eyes so as to be
spared the trouble and expense of ever
getting glasses. Eye troubles of many
descriptions may be wonder/ully bene
fited by ZollowiuK the simple rule*.

and president of the Harrisburg Dis
trict Epwortli League, was elected

leaders, and are the first of the fol
low-up plans of the great Centenary
Movement which has just been so
successfully ended. The speakers at

Plans for t]je annual Kunkel
i Romper Day program to be given
in Reservoir Park August 21 by city
playground boys and girls are being
made now by J. K. Staples, play
ground supervisor. The last week
of the McCormick Island play
grolind camp will open to-morrow
when boys from various city play
lots will start a week's outing.
G. F. Fitting, contractor for John
Y. Mullen secured a building permit
to erect a two-story brick garage
at the rear of 11 Evergreen street,
at a cost of $BOO.
Here is the prescription: Go to any
active drug store and get a bottle of
Bon-Opto tablets. Drop one llon-
Opto tablet in a fourth of a glass of
water and allow to dissolve. With
this liquid bathe the eyes two to four
times daily. You should notice vour
eyes clear up perceptibly right from
the start and inflammation will quick
ly disappear. If your eyes are both
ering you, even a little, take steps to
save them now before it is too late.
Many hopelessly blind might have
been saved if they had cared for
their eyes in time.
Note: Another prominent Physician
to whom the above article was sub
mitted. said: "Hon-Opto is u verv re
markablc remedy. Its constituent in
gredients are well known to eminent
eye specialists and widely prescribed
by them. The manufacturers guaran
tee it to strengthen eyesight 50 per
cent, in one week's time in many in
stances or refund the money. It can
be obtained from any good druggist
and is one of the very few prepara
tions I feel should be kept on hand
for regular use in almost every fam
ily." It is sold in Harrisburg by the
Kennedy, the Croll Keller, J. Nelson
Clark stores and other druggists.

Hotel Plaza to Model Restau
rant After Boat Plans; May
Erect New Building
An Innovation in restaurant serv
ice will be introduced at the Hotel
Plaza, by W. R. and M. It. Graupner,
new proprietors. They have pur
chased the interest of John Scliroth,
former proprietor and have plans
under way to make the Hotel Plaza
one of the most fumous hostelries in
this section of the State. Many
changes are contemplated at the
hotel with special plans for the res
taurant service and probably cul
minating in the erection of an en
tirely new twelve-story hotel on the
present site.
The initial part of the program
planned by the new proprietors calls
for the introduction of the same res
taurant service employed on the
great trans-Atlantic passenger
liners. A chef, formerly in charge
of the service of one of the greatest
ocean-going boats, has been em
ployed and is planning to introduce
this same high-class service.
At the present time the new pro
prietors have in their possession
architect's plans calling for a new
twelve-story structure on the site of
the present Hotel Plaza.
In discussing plans for the new
hotel to-day, William R. Graupner,
one of the new proprietors, stated-'
that no definite time has been set for
work to start on the new hotel.
However, at the present time, some
improvements, incident to the intro
duction of the new steamship res
taurant service, will be made and
as soon as conditions warrant, work
will start on the new hotel.

Cheers arid. Hisses Pass Back and Forward at Conclusion of
Senator Lodge's Attack on League of Nations Covenant
asliington, Aug. 13. . The tra
ditional decorum of Senate proceed
ure was uptet yesterday by an un
usual demonstration of approval
from the galleries following an ad
dress by Senator Lodge, of Massa
■ chusetts, chairman of the Foreign
j Relations Committee, assailing pro
| visions of the' League of Nations
| covenant.
For more than a minute the gal
j lery spectators applauded and checr
led in violation of the Senate rules,
and then when order had been re
, stores they interrupted with howls
a nd hi;ses, a speech by Senator Wil
j liams, Democrat, Mississippi, in re
ply to Mr. Lodge. In spite of sharp
| admonition from the chair thero
were more hisses mingled with ap
plause when Senator Hitchcock, Ne
braska, seconded Senator Williams'
As Senator Lodge concluded his
speech there broke out in the cham
ber a demonstration declared to be
unprecedented In the history of that
legislative body.
Aroused to a high state of patri
otic fever by Senator Lodge, who
closed a carefully prepared attack
011 the League of Nations covenant
with a peroration on Americanism,
the men and women who packed
every gallery to the doors, rose and
gave him three distinct volleys of
applause, in violation of the rules of
the Senate.
Women gave Chautauqua salutes
to the chairman of the Senate For
eign Relations Committee; men
clapped vigorously and several
United States marines, members of
the Second Division, who stopped
the German drive at Chateau-Thierry
and had been reviewed only a few
hours before by President Wilson
on the eve o( their demobilization,
cheered and yelled.
Marsliall Ignores Cheers
Vice-President Marshall, contrary
to his usual custom, made no at
tempt to enforce the rules against
demonstrations of any kind. As one
wave of applause passed over, an
other of even greater volume would
thunder forth, and to on, time and
again. As the third demonstration
died down and Senator Lodge was
surrounded by his colleagues, who
clasped his hand and shook it vigor
ously as they showered him with con
gratulations, the presiding officer
pounded his desk with the ivory
Senator Williams, of Mississippi,
who sat on the Republican side of
the aisle and at the desk directly in
front of Senator Lodge throughout
the Massachusetts member's address
was on his feet demanding recog
nition. On a scrap of paper he had
been making notes industriously on
every point developed by the Re
publican chairman.
"T hesitate," said Senator Williams
when he obtained recognition from
the chair, "to answer the greatest
prepared presentation of American
selfishness ever uttered in this cham
ber.,' These words quieted the gal
leries and the floor of the Senate
which had been in a state of chaos
since _ the conclusion of Senator
Lodge's speech. Men and women
who had risen to go sat down again,
but Senator Lodge retired to the Re
publican cloakroom, followed by a
number of his Senatorial admirers.
"The Senator from Massachu
setts," Senator Williams continued,
"has been cogitating this for three
months with a view of capturing the
Senate and the galleries. This is not
a new manifestation of the Senator
from Massachusetts. He has always
attempted to make a show of him
With the utterance of the last
word, hisses broke out in every gal
lery of the chamber. They were
not isolated demonstrations. They
were general, and they continued
while the Vice-President rapped
vainly for order. Senator Williams,
a fiery Southerner by nature, stood
silently in his place, looking toward
Pittsburgh Trolleymen Turn
Down Award of War
Labor Board
Pittsburgh, Pa., Aug. 13. The
five-cent-an-honr wage increase
awarded 3,000 motormen and con
ductors of the Pittsburgh Railways
Company by the National War Labor
Board yesterday will not be accepted
by the men, according to a statement
issued this afternoon by P. J. Ward,
business agent of Division 85, Am-,
ulgamated Association of Street and i
Electric Railway Employes. The
men demanded an increase of 12
cents an hour during the recent
strike which was called off pending
the War Board's decision.
"It's rotten," declared Mr. Ward
to-day, speaking of the War Board's
award in New York yesterday. "The
men will not stand for it and we are
letting the public know it right
Mr. Ward announced that the trol
leymen would hold a meeting at the
labor temple to-night at which form
al action rejecting the award will be
taken. He said the Pittsburgh
motormen and conductors are un
willing to work for a 53 cent maxi
mum when similar men are getting
65 cents in Chicago and other cities.
The present wage scale in Pitts
burgh is 43, 46 and 48 cents an
hour. The board's award would in
crease it to 48, 51 and 53 cenls.
In a long statement, issued to
day, accepting the War Board's wage
increase, C. A. Pagan, W. D. George
and S. L. Tone, receivers for the
Pittsburgh Railways Company, de
clared that it probably will be neces
sary to increase street car fares to
meet the increase which they said
would total 51,050,000.
Pittsburgh since the first of Aug
ust have been paying 10 cents cash
fare and seven and a ha'f cents by
tickets. This is the second raise in
a year, the former being from five
to seven cents.
Back Broken in Fall
From Railway Trestle
Palling, to-day, from a trestle in
I the Rutherford yards of the Phila
delphia and Reading Railroad,
Cornelius A. Lonkhart, Brick Church
Road, Enola, is in the Harrlsburg
Hospital, in a serious condition with
a suspected fracture of the back.
Lonkhart, who is 4 8 years old, was
employed as a car repairman in the
Ruthorfordyards. j
the chair, and when the demon
stration of disapproval had been
hushed, the presiding officer said:
"You have violated the rules of
the Senate. You violated the rules
when you applauded the Senator
from Massachusetts, and you have
violated them again now. Anv fur
ther demonstration of approval or
disapproval, will be followed by an
order from me to clear the gallery.
You ought to be ashamed of your
Never Equaled in History
But the precedent-making demon
stration was then a matter of his
tory. Old attaches of the Capitol de
clared that never in their long years
of service had they ever witnessed
anything that approached it. Sena
tors discussed the affair with abso
lute amazement. The most kindly
suggestion made as a possible ex
planation was that the galleries had
been packed with anti-League spec
tators. but in view of the fact that
they were open to the public, this
theory was not generally accepted.
Senato? Williams continued,
nevertheless, on'the same line of
criticism. He asserted that years
ago when the Force bill, intended
to give to the negroes of the South
the right to vote, was before the
Senate, Senator Lodge then, as now,
paid a high tribute to himself as be
ing the only man devoted to Ameri
canism and the United States.
The speech of Senator Williams
closed an eventful day In the Senate.
By a strange coincidence just at the
moment Senator Lodge said, "I have
loved but one llag and I cannot
share that devotion and give affec
tion to the mongrel banner invented
by the league," the light streamed
through the skylight and the cham
ber, which had been in semi-dark
ness, was flooded with mellow gold.
Lodge Pledges Americanism
Just before this spectacular ef
fect, Senator Lodge had declared.
"You may call me selfish, if you
want, conservative or reactionary,
or use any other harsh adjective you
see fit to apply, but an American I
was born, an American I have re
mained in life. I can never be any
thing else but an American, and
I must think of the United States
first, and when I think of the United
States first in an arrangement like
this, I am thinking of what is best
for the world, for if the Unified
States fails the best hopes <jf man
kind fail with it."
Whether he will go to the extent
of advocating rejection of the entire
peace treaty with the League of
Nations covenant, which is carried
as part of it. is not made plain by
the chairman. He docs not make
it plain that, even though all the
reservations suggested were adopt
ed, he still believes that other pro
visions would bind America in a
manner that most of the reserva
tionists are seeking to avoid.
It is known that Senator Lodge
has told some of his Republican col
leagues he has enough votes in his
committee to report the peace treaty
to the Senate with the League of Na
tions covenant eliminated, and some
of the Republicans not members of
his committee are urging that that
action be taken.
But if such a step were taken by
the committee the Senate certainly
would order the treaty recommitted
with instructions to the committee
to report it back with the league
covenant Incorporated. It was dem
onstrated to the satisfaction of all
Senators favoring a separation of
the league covenant from the treaty
that such a plan could not muster
a majority of the votes in the San
Knox Never Forced Vote
Senator Knox, who proposed such
a plan in the committee and ob
tained a favorable report from that
body on his resolution, calling for a
separation, never pressed his reso
lution for a vote because Its defeat
was known to be certain.

Because of the inclement weather
there was no plowing at Bonny

a big impression on the men who
have come from all over Central
Pennsylvania, and many sales are
already reported.
To-day the tractors were to have
been assigned another field in which
to work. Yesterday each tractor ex

In addition to the means of loco
motion furnished by the tractors,
a demonstration was given of the
other work which may be secured
from them. Tied up to threshing
machines, ensilage cutters, cream

the little machines showed that they
could more than triple the effective

After Sleeping in Room Occu
pied by His Grandfather in
1860, Traces Other Steps
By Associated Press.
St. John's, N. F., Aug. 13. —The
shores of Quidividl Lake, two miles
from the city, where a few weeks
ago crowds gathered to watch the
start of the first successful no-stop
trans-Atlantic airplane flight, were
again thronged with enthusiastic
New Foundlanders to-day when the
Prince of Wales, on his official visit
to this colony went to the lake for
the annual regatta.
After a program of events which
kept him up until long after mid
night yesterday, the prince slept at
Government House, in the room oc
cupied in 1860 by his grandfather,
the late King Edward VII when as
Prince of Wales he visited New
Foundland. Early this morning the
prince went aboard the British
cruiser Dragon for breakfast and
at 10 o'clock made his second offi
cial landing in the city. A , crowd
greeted him, repeating the enthu
siastic welcome of yesterday and all
along the route of the lake ho re
ceived an ovation.
In witnessing the regatta, a fea
ture of summer life here, for nearly
seventy years, the prince was once
again following in the footsteps of
his grandfather, who was the guest
of honor at a similar event sixty
years ago.
The racing program occupied the
entire day but the prince was re
stricted to a two-hour visit. After
three were rowed, the royal party
drove back and embarked for St.
John, N. B. The ship sailed at

Holds Situation More Tragic
Than Public Has Any
New York, Aug. 13.— E. H. Soth
ern, beloved of theatergoers
throughout the United States, deep
ly deplores the actors' strike, which,
he fears, will have a disastrous ef
fect upon his chosen profession. Dis
cussing the situation arising from
the controversy between the actors
and managers, he said last night:
"I was a member of the Actors'
Equity Association, but I did not
approve Of their tactics, so I resign
ed. X am not a member of the Man
agers' Producing Association, and,
therefore, am an independent in this
controversy. I have practically re
tired from the stage, as I intend to
give only a few performances next
year. Therefore, I am in this af
fair merely as one who loves his
calling and does not wish to see
anything harmful happen to it.
"I deplore the strike terribly, for
it is much more tragic than the
public has any idea of. They think
j it is amusing to see actors perform
antics in front of the theaters, so
they do not take seriously what is
happening. But what is happening
is that the fourth largest commer
cial institution in the country is
being ruined. The tragedy is that
all this could have been prevented.
Harry A. Reitinger, 53, of Hagers
town, was treated at the Harrisburg
Hospital yesterday for several cuts

was injured when he fell on a pave
"Nature created the fir.-est of
medicines," noted physicians say.
Roots, herbs, barks," berries and
seeds have been famous for 100
| years for their special curative pow
j ers.
To try to improve on Nature's
remedies would be like trying to
whitewash a white rose to make it
more beautiful.
Nothing equals Nature's Dande
lion root to regulate a torpid liver
and increase the flow of purifying
bile, physicians declare, or Gentian
root, to invigorate digestion and
moderately increase the force of
blood circulation: Juniper Berries,
to cleanse kidneys and bladder:
S'arsaparilla root, to purify the
Peruvian Bark, to subdue fever
ish conditions; Rhubarb root, to in
vigorate the bowels; Jamaica Gi*ger
root, to increase the flow of vital
digestive juices and nourish the
stomach blood supply; Linseed, to
relax congestion throughout the di
gestive tract.
Prickly Ash Bark, for a languid,
run-down system; Valerian root, to
tone the nerves; Cascara Bark, to
relieve chronic constipation .
A noted chemist determined to
combine these famous Nature reme
dies so all would act together to
cleanse, purify and invigorate, not
one organ alone, but the entire di
gestive tract—stomach, liver, kid
neys and bowels.
In that way he made Nature's sys
tem purifier, tonic and builder to
create better digestion, purer blood,
real nerve vigor and bodily strength.
He named his Nature medicine
Naton-ex. Now, any man or woman
who is headachy, constipated, bil
ious, suffers with indgestion, is
nervous, weak or run down, can ob
tain Natonex from any good drug
gist. They should begin this Na
• tonex nature treatment at once.
Natonex is inexpensive, and, to
i insure accuracy, is placed in pre
scription powders.
Do not accept any pills, tablets or
liquid instead of this chemist's dis
covery, Insist on Natonex.
i Natonex is specially recommend
i ed in Harrisburg by the Gorgas
i Drug Co., 16 North Third street, and
■ is sold by leading druggists every
where. —Adv.
