U. S. Control of Sugar
Is Now Being Urged to
Prevent Feared Famine
Washington, Oct. I.—A virtual
sugar famine, government officials
fear. Is inevitable. The price of
sugar may go as high as SO cents a
pound unless the government as
sumes control of distribution.
Even then, it is likely to go to 15
cents this winter and for several
2,000 to 3,000 delicate parts

months thereafter.
This is the opinion of the sugar
bureau of the Department of Jus
tice, which is trying to stamp out
profiteering in sugar.
The department is urging the
President to establish government
control of distribution, under Which
the supply of sugar for the produc
tion of candy, soft drinks and other
luxuries would be strictly limited,
and the price of sugar to the house
holder regulated. Then, under the
amended food control act, sugar
profiteers would be.prosecuted.
The Senate committee on agricul
ture to-day directed a subcommittee
to investigate Senator New's charges
that the. President failed to adopt
the sugar equalization board's rec
ommendations to extend govern
ment control to the forthcoming
cane and beet sugar crops in order
to conserve the supply and restrict
prices during the next year.
Simultaneous "Lockout"
and "Strike" Closes
Many Printing Plants
New York, Oct. 1. The press
rooms of two hundred and fifty new
York printing plants, employing 10,-
000 men and publishing nearly alj
of the magazines and trade journals
in New York, as wpll as a large per
centage of the books printed here,
were closed to-day by a simpltane
ous "lockout" and "strike."
The lockout, ordered last night
by the printers' league section of the
Association of Employing Printers,
is supported by the International
Printing Pressmen and Assistants'
Union- of North America, the Amer
ican Federation of Labor* body,
which is waging a battle for su
premacy over alleged "outlaw" lo
gal unions.
The local unions Involved are
Pressmen's Union, No. 51; Franklin
Union, No. 23 (feeders); Paper
Handlers' Union, No. 1, and Job
Press Feeders' Un-ion, No. 1.
The men affected by the lockout
order assert that they are on strike,
beginning this morning, and predict
that they will win their demands,
which include a 4 4-hour week and
a $l4 weekly increase in wages.
Pickets were placed before all
The employers have issued orders
that their press rooms are to remain
closed until such time as they can be
reopened with forces composed ex
clusively of members of the Inter
national Union. All other depart
ments will be in operation as long
as there is work to do.
Major George L. Berry, president
of the International, issued a state
ment last nght declaring that the
real issue at stake was "American
ism," and that the Jnternational
would "give no quarter to the ac
knowledged Bolshevists and make
no compromise with those that fol
low the course of anarchy and in
dustrial disruption."
Negro Assailant of
Woman Is Captured
After Night in Swamp
Mt~ Holly, N. J., Oct. 1. Along
the Rancocas Creek, at the edge of
Mount Holly, County Detective
Parker, last night, captured James
Whiting, the negro wanted for an
assault upon Mrs. May Notsey, near
Merchantville, yesterday morning.
He is now in the county jail here.
The news of the capture jvas not
spread, the officials taking that much
precaution against any mob violence
that might develop as an outcome of
the highly excited public, attracted
here by the sensational develop
ments of the case.
Parker got Whiting single-handed
after an all-day search, following
the tracing of the negro to the
swamp between Hainesport and
Lumberton, last night. He offered
no resistance, being so nearly ex
hausted that he was apparently glad
to be relieved from the terrible or
deal he had been under since com
mitting the crime.
His clothes were soaked as a re
sult of his spending last night in the
swamps, and he could hardly walk,
Parker being required to help him
to the auto that took him to the
Berlin, Sept. 30. The great
wooden Von Hlndenburg monument,
which during the war was studded
by the populace with nails, repre
senting so much money, will be de

will make "an enduring memorial"
and one that will porpetuate the
deeds and sacrifices of Pennsylva
nia's sons in the greatest of wars."
The papers have already been pre
pared for signing, and a bond for
25 per cent, of the contract price
will be executed at once and be pre
sented with the contract for the sig
natures of the Governor, Auditor
General and- State Treasurer. Dr.
J. E. Greiner and H. E. Perring, of
Baltimore, are the engineers in
charge, Arnold W. Brunner. of New
York, architect of the Capitol im
provements being the architect. The
bridge will fit in with the compre
hensive Brunner plans, and the City
of Harrisburg will contribute a share,
as well as the Pennsylvania Rail
road, when the cost is apportioned.
The railroad is making its plans and
the State is obtaining options on
land needed for approaches so that
work on clearing the site will be fa
cilitated. Tn all probability the re
moval of the old State street bridge
will take place this fall and some
foundations may be dug.
While this is going on borings are
made for the foundations for the
new Capitol office building, to cost
a million and a quarter, which plans
-are being completed by Mr. Brunner
and on which a contract will be let
this year. Work on other Capitol
improvements including the terrace,
grading and improvement of bound
ary street, will start soon.
The group prices for the bridge
contract represent over 140 items and
are roughly divided as follows:
Preparation of site. $75,586.16.
Bridge proper. $2,841,626.01
Two pylons, $244,647.
Royal terrace approach, $38,018.20.
North side approach. $61,724.68.
Water mains. $132,265.91.
The contract for the bridge was
let by the Board of Public Grounds
and Buildings after considerable dis
cussion of the designs, and the gran
ite structure was preferred to the
reinforced concrete. The pylons
will be entirely of granite, with cen
tral chambers for the names of sol
diers and sailors in the war.
The Board also awarded the con
tract for the Wapaseening creek
bridge to Whitaker & Diehl, Harris
burg, at $37,351, and ordered adver
tisements for the superstructure of
the Laceyville bridge.
Fall Pleads For
Adoption of His 36
Treaty Amendments
Washington, Oct I.—The German
Peace Treaty got a three-hour
speeding up in the Senate yesterday
afternoon, all but thirty minutes of
which was an address by Senator
Fall, Republican, of New Mexico, at
tacking the League of Nations cove
nant and leading for adoption of his
thirty-six amendments which keep
the United States free from repre
sentation on foreign commissions,
created by the pact.
The rest of the Treaty program
was an address by Senator Edge,
Republican, of New Jersey, in which
he urged Republicans and Demo
crats alike to hasten its considera
tion so that Congress might deviate
its time and attention to pressing
problems at home.
Easier in the session the Treaty
and covenant came in for consider
able discussion, however, while the
Senate was debating, at times with
feeling, a resolution requesting the
President to transmit a report of the
landing of American sailors at Trau
after Italian forces had taken pos
session of the fort.
! Norman E. Mack Here
on Way to Buffalo Home;
Visit Merely Incidental
Returning from Atlantic City to
his home in Buffalo, N. Y., by auto
mobile, Norman E. Mack, Democratic
!' National committeeman, spent last
night at the Penn-Harris. He
"checked out" and continued his
.homeward journey about nine o'clock
this morning.
Mr. Mack, a former chairman of
the Democratic National Committee
and a member of that body for
twenty years, was on his way home
after attending the meeting of the
committee in Atlantic City. His
visit to Harrisburg was "merely inci
dental and had no connection with
local politics," Mr. Mack said.
Storage Limit Bill
Is Passed by House
• Washington, Oct. 1. Additional
legislation recommended by Presi
dent Wilson as a means of reducing
living costs was passed by the House
and sent to the Senate.
It would limit the time of holding
1 foodstuffs in cold storage to twelve
months and require that when re
-1 leased such food be plainly marked
with the date it was placed In stor
The vote on the measure was 264
to 4. The regulatory features of the
bill will become effective Immedi
ately on Its passage, but ninety days
for an adjustment of the business
affected is allowed before penalties
will be applicable.
Vast quantities of food now In
storage are expected to be released
as soon as the measure becomes a
law. Cheese is the only commodity
exempted, the time Jimit for storage
to perfect ageing being extended for
a longer period than one year.
Persons convicted of violating the
law would be fined $l,OOO or im
prisoned for one year.
May Establish Council
to Settle Disputes
By Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. L—Proposals
for the establishment of a council
for eettlement of industrial disputes,
replacing the recently dissolved War
Labor Board, probably will be one
of the first subjects brought up for
I discussion at the labor and iudus
; trial conference called by President
I W'lson to meet here Monday, It was
| learned from Department of Labor
officials in close touch with the ar-
I rangemertts for the meeting.
By Associated Press.
I Tien ton, N. J., Oct. I.—The Re-
I publican and Democratic State con
| ventions were held In this city yes
terday and each adopted a platform
I for the campaign in New Jersey.
I The Republicans declared that as
| the prohibition amendment is part
I of the Federal Constitution, it will
I not be necessary for New Jersey to
; ratify it and that in fact it is no
j longer a political issue. This plank
met with the approval of the New
Jersey Anti-Saloon League and an
announcement was made that the
league would not, therefore, put up
an independent candidate. The Re
publicans also recommended that
' the question of New Jersey's ratifi-
I cation of the woman suffrage
1 amendment be put to a referendum
of the State.
Baby Carriages Used
by New York to Help to
Move Into Winter Quarters
By Associated Ifsss.
New York, Oct. 1. —Eight thou
sand moving vans, aided by a motley
procession of limousines, drays, carts
and even baby carriages, to-day at
tacked the "peak" of the herculean
task of getting greater New York
moved into its winter quarters.
With an estimated total of 30,000
families to change abode between
morning and midnight, the movers
faced perhaps the most difficult
I task in the history of their profes
j sion. The process was somewhat
similar to that of trying to shift two
heavy suitcases from hand to hand
without setting either down, for with
virtually every shelter in the city
occupied, it was necessary to move
one tenant out before another qould
be maved on. The tenant about to
be moved out, on the other hand,
couldn't move until his contemplat
ed residence had been vacated.
The vanmen, however, collecting
$lO to $3O an hour "standing or
running" was. reported to be bearing
up well under the strain and to be
exercising exemplary patience when
it was found necessary to "stand."

Court Decides We Have the Rig|ht to Give ||
On Storage Batteries
Ihe recent case against D. J. Moran for alleged false advertise
ment was dismissed promptly by Judge Henry as unjustified and
lacking in any evidence to warrant a case. In fact, it wasn't even nec
essary to present our witnesses.
D. J. Moran proved to the satisfaction of the Court that he had
I taken the instruction course at the Willard factory and been duly auth
orized by the Willard Company to come to Harrisburg and invest his
money in the Willard Service Station, the Court held that Moran was 9k
perfectly within hist rights when hi advertised that he gave service on
Willard batteries or bought and sold them.
We do not try to prevent any one else from giving service on
Willard or any other battery, but we do claim that we are perfectly
qualified to render the best of service on Willard or any other battery.
In fact, we have many satisfied customers who will substantiate the il
statement that we have taken their batteries which were condemned §
by others and put them into first-class working order.
When you have batteries that are condemned consult us before j|
throwing them away. We will givi you expert opinion as to its true
condition without trying to influence you to buy a new battery unless
absolutely necessary.
