tern, of the Senate, sat with Speaker
Gillett and extended the first greet
ing. Speaker Gillett followed.

of the American Army, Speaker Gil
lett said, turning to General Per

of us who knew you it is refreshing
but not surprising to find that after
all the supreme power, the high sta
tion, the lordly associates and the
unstinted compliments to which you
have been accusVmed, you have de
veloped neither arrogance nor af
fection, but that you have come back
as you went away, modest, straight
forward, unspoiled."
Resolution of Thanks
The form resolution of thanks was
then presented to the General by
ex-Speaker Clark, who said:
"The resolution of thanks is
in these words:
•The thanks of the American
people and of the Congress of
the United States are due and
are hereby tendered, to Gen
eral John J. Pershing for his
highly distinguished services as
commander-in-chief of the
American Expeditionary Forces
in Europe and to the officers and
men under his command for
their duty and valor through
out the war.'"

Failing to Obtain Conference With

Walkout Monday, They Declare
By .dssociatcd Press. '
Pittsburgh, Pa., Sept. 18.—Before
resuming their discussion to-day on
matters in connection with the steel
workers strike, called for next lion
day, the national committee for or

Answer Gary
The statement follows:
"In his letter of September 16 to
the presidents of the subsidiary
companies of the United States Steel
Corporation, Judge Gary avers that
he had two reasons in mind when
he refused to meet with the Amer
ican Federation of Labor committee,
which called upon him recently re

First, he did not believe that the
committee was authorized to speak
for large numbers of the employes.
Second, a conference with the
committee would have been treated
by them as a recognition of the
"closed shop" method of employ
"If these are the real reasons
actuating Judge Gary, surely they
are not sufficient to plunge the in
dustry into a great labor conflict.
Judge Gary presents a false promise
and then declares that he will stand
or fall upon this false ground.
Selected Delegates
"The committee that waited upon
Judge Gary were the selected repre
sentatives of the employes. And
they requested a conference for the
purpose of establishing the principle
of collective bargaining and some
practical method of redressing griev
"Judge Gary denied their author
ity to represent the employes and
refused to meet them in confer
ence. The only way left for the
employes to convince Judge Gary
that the committee does represent
the great body of the employes of
the United States Steel Corporation
is to cease work until the corpora
tion agrees to meet their represen
tatives in conference. This the em
ployes have decided to do on Mon
day morning. September 22.
"It is unfortunate that the em
ployes are compelled to resort to a
strike in order to prove the authority
of their selected representatives to
present their grievances. But as
there is no other way, the proof, in
the form of a strike, will effectually
remove all doubt in Judge Gary's
Closed Shop Bugaboo
"In the second place. Judge Gary
sets up the question of the 'closed
shop' which has absolutely no basis
whatsoever in the present contro
versy. It is simply dragged in here
by Judge Gary as a bugaboo to be
cloud the real issue.
There is one and only one ques
tion at issue and that is the question
of a conference. The employes have
exhausted every avenue of approach
to the corporation for the purpose of
securing a conference and every
avenue has been closed to them.
Their last and only hope is to strike,
and now the employes declare that
they will cease work on next Mon
day morning until such time as the
corporation will meet their repre
sentatives in conference for the pur
pose of establishing humane and
reasonable methods of dealing with
the very vital problems which affect
their lives, their homes and their

Former German Prince
Is Reported to Have
Escaped to Home Soil
By Associated Press.
Paris, Sept. 18.—A rumor has
again reached Paris byway of
Zurich that former Crown
ITinee Frederick William, of
Germany, lias returned to his
native country.
Reports that the former Crown
Prince of Germany had escaped
from Holland became current late
in June, it being rumored he had
managed to reach German soil, but
it was announced officially in a few
days that he was still in Holland.
There were many reports to the ef
fect he did spend at least some time
in Germany at that period, visiting
Potsdam among other places. On
July 9 another report became gen
eral to the effect that he had re
turned to Germany and was pre
paring for a monarchist coup d'etat.
At that time it was said that he
visited his wife, but hastened back
to Holland. This report, however,
was never confirmed.

Pennsylvania Railroad Offi
cials Have an Eye to Fu
ture in Regard to Tracks
New Building Expected to
Come When U. S. Surren
ders Rail Lines
Indications that the Pennsylvania
Railroad authorities are considering
the relation of a proposed Union
station to the new Memorial Bridge
to be erected liy the State and the
city came out to-day at the engin
eering conference on the bridge plans
at the Capitol, the railroad people
asking that piers and other parts
of the bridge be so located that when
a new station is built track changes
can be made without difficulty. No
intimation as to where the new sta
tion may be placed was given, al
though gossip has associated the pro
ject with Walnut and Cowden street,
North and Seventh and the present
location with a front on Market
street. The location of piers and
other matters will be agreed to
within a short time.
The conference was held at the
office of the Department of Public
Grounds and Buildings by George
A. Shreiner, J. E. Greiner and H.
G. Perring for the State; Superin
tendent William Elmer and Corpo
rate Engineer Horace Booz for the
railroad. ft seems to have been
pretty definitely established at the
Capitol that there will be no station
at State street as that would inter
fere with the bridge.
Itailroad property investments
along the south side of Market
street have made many people be
lieve that the new station may be
built over the tracks much as"was
done in Baltimore and other places.
The company, it was pointed out to
day, had very large holding between
Market street and the Mulberry
street bridge and with the Reading
could combine in a gigantic structure
covering all tracks with room for
freight tracks on the east side. Rail
road officials said frankly that the*-
had 110 location in mind, but were
preparing for eventualities, but no
one at the Capitol looks for any
thing to be done while the Gov
ernment runs the railroads.
For several years studies have
been made and it is said that there
have been tentative plans made for
three different locations. State of
ficials would be glad to have some
settlement of the question because
a new station would be an orna~
mental affair and fit in with the com
prehensive plans for the creation of
the civic center.

General satisfaction was expressed
to-day with the outcome of the pri

are talking now of a big victory m
November for the entire ticket. The
small Democratic vote is being dis

organization within the ranks of the
minority party, and with this ad
vantage at the start. Republican
workers declared they will bend
every effort to turn out an over

Close Contests
A study of the returns from the
city nnd county show how com
plete was the victory for the organ
ization candidates over the so
called "Independent" list. The two
closest fights were for city treasurer
and county treasurer. In the former
Harry F. Oves won out by 261
votes, while in the latter Oliver C.
Bishop had a majority of about 1,-
His opponent, Joshua E. Ruther

treasurer, polled the highest num
ber of votes on the Independent
ticket. In the city Mr. Rutherford
carried two wards, taking two of
three precincts in the First and
three of four in the Tenth. In (lie
county Mr. Rutherford carried twen
ty-three of seventy-one districts, in

Arc'hileet Brunner Pleased With Educational Program and
Hopes It Will Lead to Beautiful City
"I am happy to note that the Tele
graph has undertaken a tree planting
campaign in Harrisburg," said Arnold
W. Brunner, architect of the Capitol
Extension and City Memorial to a re
porter of this newspaper to-day.
"Harrisburg has many trees, but
it needs more. However, I would
caution against indiscriminate plant
ing. The whole plan af tree decora
tion should be carefully levised with
an Idea not only of harmony but of
permanency, it would be too bad if
you planted trees on some of the very
narrow streets, where they would
not have a chance of coming to ma
turity. Not every thoroughfare can
be so adorned, much as we might wish
to have it so.
"Anothei; matter that should not be
forgotten is that care and supervis
ion must be exercsied contiually to
preserve and develop the trees already
planted. Some, cities evidently be
lieve that they have performed their
full duty when thf plant a lot of
trees and then let them go, to ll\r or
die, survive or perish."
Mr. Brunner expressed the thought
that tree planting should not bo con
fined merely to the residential local
ities. "I know," he said "that many
merchants do not believe trees should
be planted in business districts, but
1 believe that if they fully understood
that an elm of slender trunk, which
does not throw out branches below
a height of 25 or 30 feet would not
obstruct the vision of pedestrians,
th<4- would change their minds. In
France where the merchants are as
thrifty as any in the world, they
plant trees in front of their stores in
order to make the thoroughfare
shady and cool. I suggest that you
give the idea of a treatment of trees
around the curbline of Market Square
some consideration. I believe it would
add greatly to the beauty of the
down-town district and I know that
the merchants instead of being in
jured. would be materially helped. I
earnestly hope that the Telegraph's
campaign will bear fruit. You are to
be congratulated for your enterprise
in getting it under way and for your
support of the efforts of the local
