    New Haven News
Writers Strike When
Refused Wage Increase
By Associated Press.
New ITaven, Conn., Sept. 15.
Three afternoon newspapers here,
to-day issued their editions under
unusual conditions, a strike of news
writers having gone into effect on
these publications following a strike
on the Morning Journal-Courier at
last midnight.
Managing editors and editorial
writers who were not members of
the newly-formed News Writers
Equity Association, took up duties of
city editors and copy readers, while
the places of street men were filled
by substitutes. The strike follows
refusal of publishers to increase
wages of street and desk men.
The Equity Association claims that |
practically all staff and street men j
on the four dailies here are mem - •
bers and had endorsed the proposal
to strike in event of the failure of
the publishers to fix a definite scale
of compensation. The evening pa- \
pers are the New Haven Register,
the New Haven Times-Leader, and ;
the New Haven t'nion.
Proofreaders on the papers did
not strike, as they are not regarded
as part of a news writing staff.

the official magazine. D. W. Mur
j phy, of Altoona. was elected secrc
tary and treasurer, and will have
his headquarters in Harrisburg with
those of President Smith. Arthur
| Rupley. of Carlisle, who has offices
, here, was elected national coun
' cilor. The next convention will be
| held in Buffalo. X. Y., in 1921.
Harrisburg Gets Prize
Harrisburg was awarded the first,
prize for having the largesW in
crease in membership in two yeais.
Second prize went to Delmar, Dela
ware; third. Baltimore, and fourth
to Hagerstown. There was a lively
competition among the various
lodges for those prizes which were
arranged for at the convention hold
in Harrisburg two years ago.
Members of this organization arc
from the ranks of the four railroad
brotherhoods. Luther G. Smith, ot e
I of the charter members, has been
1 at the head for some years. During
the past two years he has been
traveling many miles of territory in
his efforts to organize new lodges
and bulid up the membership.
Pennsy Loses Large Sums
on Mail Irregularities
When Pennsy employes fail to
handle L'ncle Sam's mail on sched
! ule time or provide for rush busi
ness it is costly. Here are some
: costs and amounts paid out for i •
regularities during 1918;
! Failure to hold trains until all
mail was loaded or un
loaded 8 2.53b
Failure to load or unload
cars promptly 1,1:16
Failure to furnish cars or
placing cars late 1,258
Baggage masters, porters and
1 station agent failures.... 17,731
Total $22,731
The total amount of penalties lm
l posed during the first six months
j of 1919 was $10,771.57.
Attention is called to the fact
I that baggagemasters, porters and
1 station agents are responsible fir
; the greater part of the fines imposed
I and hope is expressed that such ao
; tion will be taken on their part
that the number of failures will oe
j reduced to a minimum.
Local Engineers Figure
in Good Train Records
During the month of August
three Harrisburg passenger en
gineers were prominent in making
good train records. One made 100
per cent. He was Samuel H. Alex
ander, 1534 North Fifth street. He
is an extra man and made twenty
three trips. On eleven he reached
the terminal on time, and twelve
times he made up lost time.
Jesse S. Reynolds, 622 Muench
; street, and J. S. Kauffman, of Al
toona. lost time on but one trip and
on the whole the percentages weic
high and they received special men
tion from the Middle division offi
cials. Samuel S. Kirk, 2050 Fulton
street, mode the most trips of any
engineer on the division, a total of
fifty-eight. He lost time on but oix
An old darky, who was asked if
,in his experience prayer was ever

"Well, sah, some pra're is ansud

She has been through it so many
times before that she neverliesitates
now. When anyone in the family
comes to her with a spot of eczema
or an itching rash, she gets out the

prompt relief. And a few applica

irritation completely.

Many Candidates Also Are
Seeking Nomination as
County Commissioner
Now Bloomfield, Pa., Sept. 15.
Chief interest in the primaries in
Perry county to-morrow centers in
the fight for tlie president judgeship
I of the forty-first judicial district, in
j eluding Perry and Juniata counties.
which will he settled in the pii
j maries of to-morrow. Two candi
dates are in the field for the nomi
nation, Judge Jeremiah N. Keller, ct
j Mifilintown, the present incumbent, .
and James Macllarnett, of New !
The contest hits been largely a j
"favorite son" contest, Juniata '
backing Keller, tooth and nail, and J
Perry doing the same for Macßar- i
nett. In some instances efforts have j
been made to inject factional poli- j
tics into the nonpartisan contest, but
tlie tight is chiefly a "favorite son* j
one Keller is a Democrat and •
Macßarnett a Republican.
| Efforts have been made in a num- 1
' ber of instances to bring tlie tem-:
peranee issue into the fight, but i
thus far the efforts have not been:
bearing much fruit. It was pointed I
out by some papers of the several
counties that Macßarnett had al- j
| ways been a "wet" man and that it j
was safe only to vote for Keller, a
; pronounced "dry." Papers favoring '
| Macßarnett, some of which fought'
■ him for the nomination in a pre
vious judivial campaign because cf i
; his liquor stand, have pointed out j
that the Jiquor issue is a dead one, j
and that Macßarnett is perfectly j
bafe for "drys" and "wets" alike, I
that he will have no opportunity ioj
j preside at any license court. This
I issue promises to play little part.
| by'.side of the judicial campaign.

Petition For Extra Hour
of Sunshine
MANY person 3 who are anxious to have the present system of
daylight saving continued next year and who may not have
the opportunity of signing the regular petitions urging Council
to take such action as will provide an extra hour of daylight, are
requested to sign the statement below and mail it to this office, care
of the Editorial Department:
"I, the undersigned, do hereby heartily endorse the Harrisburg
Telegraph's movement for the continuation of the Daylight-Saving
system in Harrisburg, and I earnestly petition the members of City
Council and the Mayor to hike such action as will give next year
the extra hour of daylight. I also petition Congress to reconsider
its action in repealing this highly commendable law."
j interest centers chiefly in the fight |
| for the county commissioner-ship j
j nominations. Eleven Republicans j
i are in the field for their two party I
j nominations while six Democrats'
: have announced their candidacies, j
i The Republicans are: J. \V. Kel

Spring township; W. C. Loy, New- !
port; George C. Hoffman. Liverpool; I
■ A. D. Ncidig, Blain, and I. N. Bar-1
[ ner. of Liverpool.
So great has the interest for the i
■ nominations for this office, with its 1
doubled salaries been, that charges j
; have been flying thick and fast. In |
I one instance "slacker" charges are j
| said to have been brought in such
force against one candidate that he
| chose to answer in paid newspaper
i advertisements.
| There will be no contests at the
j polls to-niorrow or at the general
; election for the office of district at
-1 torney, since James W. McKee, of
New Bloomfield, the present incum
bent, is tlie only candidate in the
field for the nomination. The same
i conditions exists in regard to the
office of register and recorder, Wil
j liant F. Swartz, of New Bloomfield,
I being the only candidate in the
j field. For county treasurer, James
j Noel, of Toboyne township, seeks the
i Republican nomination, as does
j Chester E. Burd, of Wheatfield
township, the Democratic nomina
! tion. The latter will be nominated
j by the sticker method, having an
nounced his candidacy too late to get
on the ballot,
i For sheriff Paul R. Flurie, of New
i port, will gain the Republican nonii
| nation without dispute. N. F. Evans,
|of Tyrone township, and C. J.

I For county auditor no Democrats

j The emoluments of the county

Riots Follow Fare
Increase on Car Lines
By Associated Press,
Canulon, N. .T., Sept. 15.—The now
zone fare system on the trolley lines
of New Jersey was responsible to
day for much disorder in this vicin
ity. Ship workers riding to work at
the yards of the New York Ship
building Corporation near here and
the Pusey Jones & Co. at Glouces
ter, two miles below, attacked the
curs and employes, breaking win
dows of thirty cars and otherwise
damaging them. Nearly all of those
who rode refused to pay the in
cteased fares. Many jitneys were In
operation. The trolley cars carried
few passengers.
