American Standards Must Be
Maintained, Postmasters
Are Told
Secretary of Labor William B.
Wilson, speaking to three hundred
members of the Pennsylvania State
Postmasters Association last even
ing at their banquet.in the Penn-
Harris Hotel, said that an early
solution of labor problems was a
Mr. Wilson said that wo are now
passing through a period of uncer
tainty, but that there was no doubt
of an early change from war to
peace time conditions, just as we
changed so rapidly the other way at
the declaration of hostilities. The
American standard must be main
tained, according to Mr. Wilson, and
the American laborer will see that 1
it is maintained.
The Secretary of Labor went on
to outline the Bolshevist movement
in Russia and its relation to this
country. That the movement in this
country is broken there can be no
doubt, he said. Speaking of the high
cost of living, he predicted that the
government would bring about a
reduction in prices by going after
the profiteer and hoarder.
Mr. Wilson was the only sched
uled speaker who was able to be
present. Vance C. McCormick,
chairman of the War Trade Board,
A. Mitchell Palmer, Attorney Gen
eral. and Postmaster General Burle
son all sent telegrams expressing
their regret at their inability to be
The first speaker of the evening
was Third Assistant Postmaster
General A. M. Dockery, former gov
ernor of Missouri. Mr. Dockery
urged the vital importance of a
speedy ratification of the treaty.
He predicted a period of prosperity
greater than the country has ever
known, after the treaty is ratified.

United States Senator Joseph T.
Robinson, of Arkansas, made the
final address. He assailed the op
ponents of the League of Nations,
and those who were arguing over
the ratification of the treaty. The
President deserves highest com
mendation for the way in which he
put through the treaty, said the
senator from Arkansas. Senator
Robinson has the peculiar distinc
tion of having been within the
period of sixteen days, congress
man, senator and governor of his
Closing hours of the Pennsylvania
Postmasters' convention were given
a decided political coloring by a
speech by James I. Blakslee, fornftr
secretary of the Democratic State
Committee and now fourth Assistant
Postmaster General, who twice took
occasion in the course of his speech
to boost Attorney General A. Mitch
ell Palmer for President. Each time
the convention rose and cheered.
The postmasters adopted resolu
tions praising the President, Post
master General A. S. Burleson, whose
letter of regret at inability to bo
present was read later, and Mr. Pal
mer. First Assistant Postmaster
General John C. Koons warned the
convention that while there might
be an increase in salaries, it would
not be us great as some wanted and
that a 35 per cent increase would
mean one hundred million dollars
additional expense.
Blakslee then spoke on the postal
service as the saviour of the Nation
and urged that the rural free deliv
ery system he used to buy food di
rect from farmers and suggested
that some of the motor vehicles
bought for war uses be provided
for such purposes. He said that ho
felt that the postmasters were ready
to line up next year behind a Penn
sylvanian and when the cheers had
subsided decried attacks upon Pal
mer, whom he said had performed
public services second only to those
of the President. Blakslee also crit
icised the cost per mile of the bids
the State has been receiving for road
construction and said good roads
and adequate compensation were
needed for rural carriers.
Demand German Officers
Swear Allegiance to New
Republican Constitution
by Axuvciattfl Prers.
Berlin, Thursday, Sept. 4.—The So
cinlDemocratie Society of Breslau has
adopted a resolution introduced in the
National Assembly by Vice-President
Loebe, demanding that all army of
ficers Immediately take the oath to
the new republican constitution and
urging that those who refuse be dis
missed from the army.
Another resolution Introduced in
the National Assembly calls upon the
government to get rid of Gustav
N'oske, minister of defense, who, It
is said, "Is evidently unable to stem
the tide of military reaction." The ap
pointment of a "comrade capable of
ending the military counter revolu
tion, Is demanded. There is also a pro
test before the National Assembly
against the retention of the law pro
viding for arrests during a period of
martial law. This is taken as another
indication that Herr Noske's regime
is unpopular with the government and
the Socialists.
Hamburg, Thursday, Sept. 4.—The
editor of the independent Socialist
newspaper Volks Zeitung has been
sentenced to jail for three weeks on a
charge of having "insulted Gustav
Noske, minister of defense," in an
Wilson Seen as Ally
of Universal Training
Washington, Sept. s.—That Presi
dent Wilson favors universal military
training and supports the War De
partment's army reorganization bill
creating a peace time army of 576,000
is the belief of General Payton C.
March, chief of staff. He told the
House military affairs committee,
furthermore, that world unrest, and
steps taken by other lations to main
tain strong military forces make it
necessary for the United States to
keep its relative strength. Ho de
clared that if universal military train
ing is adopted an army of the size

the order from the Board of Pub
lic Grounds and Buildings to go
ahead. The Commonwealth under
an act of Assembly will dedicate for
the uses of the city such foot walks
as may he necessary in the park
along Walnut and Third streets.
Mueh Wofik in Prospect
In addition to the prospective
street work along the Capitol Parit,
Commissioner Lynch is proceeding
rapidly to cover the highway work
outlined for this season. Consider
able paving is necessary in the
vicinity of the new Edison school
building at Eighteenth and Chest
nut streets, and it will also be neces
sary to pave the block in Chestnut,
between Eighteenth and Nineteenth.
The proposed loan for street paving
of $50,000 will provide for other
important street work contemplated
for the 1920 program.
In addition to the item in the
loan ordinance providing for the
transfer of $300,000 for the pro
posed Walnut street bridge to the
Memorial viaduct at State street,
there Is an important loan item of
SIOO,OOO for sewers. This sum will
be utilized in general improvement
of the sewage conditions of the city
and will take care of the large sec
tion embraced in the Thirteenth
ward. It will also provide for the
eventual annexation of Paxtang to
the city. Another item which this
loan will cover is an important main
sewer along Asylum creek, which
will provide a new sewer distribu
tion point at Seventeenth and Cal
der streets and afford an outlet for
the State Police Barracks and other
important buildings in that section.
This loan will also take care of
the big sewer necessary to reclaim
the lowlands In the vicinity of
Italian Park at Shamokln street.
Unless and until this loan Is author
ized no real relief can lie provid-.d
for the big building developments
which are contempated in several
sections of Harrisburg, especially in
the suburban districts.
Another of the paving projects
which is of Interest is the Herr
street section, from Cameron lo
Fourteenth, which will provide an
outlet for the State Arsenal and the
State Police Barracks.
Of all the loans, however, none is
more popular than that proposing
$40,000 In the Kiester ordinance for
bathing facilities. Under a resolu
tion adopted by City Council, Park
Commissioner Gross is directed to
employ an expert who shall deter
mine what Harrisburg should do in
respect to proper bathing accom
modations. It is expected that this
expert will be engaged and make
a study of the matter without de
lay so the whole subject can be
intelligently presented to the people
before election.

Tuesday Is destined to be one of the
most elaborate pageants ever staged
on the streets of Philadelphia. More
than 25.000 Knights will be In line.
The line will be over eleven miles in
length and will take from three and
a half to four and a half hours to
pass the reviewing stand. Some Idea
of its gorgeousness may be formed
when it is stated that the value of
the plumes which will he worn by
the marchers exceeds a half million
dollars. In all probability the total
value of the regalia displayed will
exceed $3,000,000.
