When the campaigners reported
nt noon to-day in Chestnut street

between $35,000 and $40,000.
Not Discouraged
"Do not be discouraged bv these
figures," said Spencer C. Gilbert,
chairman of the executive commit

"the monument will be built as cer

The campaigners cheered his re

raise the remainder of the sum.
To Plan Future Work
After the meeting members of the

Claims Charges of
Watson Part of Packers'
Fight to Subvert Justice
By Associated Press.
Washington. Oct. 22.—The Fed
oral Trade Comrfiission, in a formal
statement to-day assorted that the
charges made against the commis
sion by Senator Watson. Republican,
Indiana, and Senator Sherman. Re
publican, Illinois, were "part of the
warfare of the Chicago meat packers
against the Department of Justice
and the Federal Tradf Commission
with the purpose of subverting jus
The commission said the good
faith of Senator Watson's charges
was open to question when it was
remembered that the senator /as a
"lobbyist" in 1909, and it charged
that the senator's "relations with
Ihe Chicago packers" were shown
by correspondence which the com
mission had taken from the flies of
Wilson and Company.
Declaring that the commission
and its employes had long been sub
ject to an attack, "that the public
has never known about," the com
mission's statement said that while
it, was investigating the meat pack
ers the government's representatives
were trailed by detectives and that
the commission's offices were enter
ed "surreptitiously."

City Greatly Damaged and Many Civil
ians Killed; Army of Gen. Yudenitch
in Fierce Battle Within Sight
of Petrograd
By Associated Press.
Copenhagen, Oct. 22.—German artillery at Riga fired on
British warships at the mouth of the harbor on Sunday, accord
ing to a report of the Lettish general staff, and on Monday the
British ships returned the fire, shelling German positions near
the city.
Riga is being bombarded by heavy German artillery, which is
using gas shells. Great damage has been done in the city and many
civilians have been killed or wounded.
Ixuulon, Oct. 22.—Notwithstand
ing General Yudenitch's great suc
cess, his force is in imminent dan
ger from a Bolshevik attack in the
rear, says a Helsingfors dispatch
under date of Monday to the Mall.
Yudeniteh probably has not more
than 12,000 men on the firing line
and little artillery, with long lines
of communication, the correspondent
Trotzky's experts, who include sev
eral well-known Russian generals,
have launched a powerful, offensive
in the direction of Gdoff, threaten
ing Yudenitch's forces from behind,
while the left flank is liable to be
shelled by the "Red" ships at Pe
trograd. The city, says the corre
spondent, contains 10,000 obstinate
communist reserves, who are pre
paring for hard street fighting.
Revolt in Pctrograd
A dispatch to the Central News
from Helsingfors says that Russian
newspapers arriving there report a
state of rebellion in and around Pe
trograd and the discovery of a coun
ter revolutionary movement in the
Bolshevik front lines.
A wireless communication from
Bolshevik sources says that fighting |
is in progress six miles to the north
of Krasnoye Selo, where the Reds
are advancing. There is fierce fight
ting also along the Windau railroad.
The abandonment of Kiev by the
Bolshevik! is admitted, after a se
vere battle, in which the Reds claim
to have taken many prisoners.
Kronstadt has not been attacked
and will not be by the naval forces
now in the Baltic, and if the Bol
sheviki evacuate the fortress before
Petrograd falls it will be a great sur
prise, according to an admiralty
statement given to The Associated
Kxpect Kronstadt to Fall
The admiralty, however, expects
that Kronstadt will surrender soon
after Petrograd is captured, prob
ably to the British fleet in those
waters: Messages received by the
admiralty from Admiral Cowan, the
British commander in the Baltic, do
not mention the white flag incident
at Kronstadt.
Admiralty officers, who have had
experience with the Bolshevik',
would not be surprised if the white
flag really had been run up on the
fortress, as has been done in other
instances, by irresponsible persons in
the Bolshevik ranks. At present the
British fleet of light cruisers is keep
ing at a respectful distance from the
heavy batteries of Kronstadt, un
willing to get within range until
confident that the Bolslieviki mean
to surrender.
Soviet Counterattack
General Yudeniteh, commander of
the Northwestern Russian army,
seems to have been brought to a
virtual standstill by the stubborn
defense of Petrograd, which is al
most within sight of his men. Soviet
forces are even reported to have
taken the offensive north of Kras
noie, Selo, but details of the fight
ing have not yet been fully re
East of Pulkovo. the Yudeniteh
army appears to have encountered
strong Bolshevik columns. Pulkovo
is about three miles from the only
remaining railway line running
south from Petrograd and the im
portance of retaining control of this
road may explain the savage fight
ing in that sector. Date reports
state that heavier artillery is being
brought up by General Yudeniteh.
Kronstadt has not surrendered to
the anti-Bolsheviki, and has not
been attacked, according to a Brit
ish Admiralty statement.
Official reports issued from Soviet
headquarters at Moscow admit the,

Senator Capper Points Out
That $8.37 in Wheat Mounts

By Associated Press.
Washington, Oct. 21.—The farm
ers' side of the high cost of living
question was presented to the Senate
to-day by Senator Capper, Republi
can, of Kansas, who declared that,
while farmers are selling their pro
ducts at a loss in declining markets,
the consumers are paying rising
Faulty distribution was blamed
largely for this "remarkable specta

ber of remedies to increase produc

dustrial strikes and the small rep
resentation given agriculture the
industrial conference.
"In our effort to get rid of the
high cost of living disease," said Mr.
Capper, "I fear we are in great dan
ger of dying of the remedy. As a
result of the cost of food, we have
the remarkable spectacle of a rise
of one per cent, in the cost of liv
ing, coincident with market drops
that are putting livestock raisers out
of business and causing serious loss
es to other producers."

Senator Capper said farmers are |

"It takes four and a half bushels
of wheat to make a barrel of flour.
The wheat raiser gets about $8.37
for tlie wheat, the miller $12.70, the

The government, through the
grain corporation. Senator Capper
said, profited $23,000,000 at wthe ex
pense of the farmers last year, the
farmers selling from 20 to 70 cents
less than the guaranteed price.
"The situation of the livestock
farmer is even more deplorable," he
said. "Farmers Are selling their

King Albert and
Sproul Will Plant Trees in
Capitol Park Commemorat-j
ing Visit to City
Short Tour of the City Will Be
Made to Give People Oppor
tunity to See Heroic Figures
and Show City to Visitors
Arrangements for the reception to
King Albert of Belgium and liis
royal parly during their visit to Har
risburg, from 9 until 10.30 o'clock
I Friday morning, are progressing
rapidly under the direction of tne
officials of the Harrisburg Chamber
of Commerce. It is intended to make
the reception one of the most com
plete demonstrations in honor of dis
tinguished visitors that has ever
featured the history of the city.
A reception committee of promin
ent citizens, including the directors
of the Harrisburg Chamber of Com
merce, the Mayor, city and county
officials,' prominent clergymen and
others, is being completed. Vance
C. McCormick, the director of the
Chamber of Commerce, who acted
for the organization in bringing the
royal party to Harrisburg, will be
chairman of the committee.
Route of Parade
Officials of the Chamber of Com
merce with the special committee of
the board of directors, rode over the
proposed route of parade to-day and
determined that the procession would
pass over the following streets:
starting at the Pennsylvania Rail
road station at 9 o'clock, out Market
street, across the Market street
bridge to the West Shore, returning
via. the Walnut street bridge, to
Front street, to Maclay, to Second,
to State street, to- Front street,
circling State street plaza and re
turning on State street to the Capitol
grounds, through the Capitol
grounds, to the front entrance of the
Capitol. After the ceremonies at the
Capitol, the guests and the members
of the reception committee, in auto
mobiles, . will leave the Capitol
grounds and return to the Pennsyl
vania Railroad station via. Fourth
City officials will not permit the
parking of vehicles on any portion
of the route during the parade. It
is understood that the Capitol build
ing will be closed to all except the
visitors and the reception committee
until after the party leaves the
Capitol grounds. This, for the pur
pose of avoiding a rush and also to
avoid delaying the party, whose time
in the city will necessarily be short.
Citizens of Harrisburg have been
requested to begin decorating their
homes and places of, business along
the route at once, "using as many
Belgian flags as possible. They are
assured by the committee that there
will be no change of route, so that
the decorating of the city ought to
be as general as possible in the short
time given for this purpose.
To Plant Two Trees
Representatives of the -Commerce
Chamber waited upon Governor
Sproul before he left for Pittsburgh
at noon to-day, and he approved the
program so far as it affected his own
participation in it and assured the
committee that he would be happy
!to co-operate in every way. Arrange-
Iments were made for the planting
| of two trees in the Capitol Park, one
jby the King and the other by Gov
jernor Sproul. This planting will be
I particularly appropriate, inasmuch as
Friday is the State Arbor Day and
the trees will represent permanent
memorials of the visit of of the King
and Queen. The planting of the
trees will follow the visit of the party
to the Capitol and will conclude the
formal features of the reception, the
visitors leaving immediately thereaf
ter for the train.
Several bands will furnish music
for the occasion. The national airs
of Belgium, America and the Allies
will mingle during the hour and a
half that Harrisburg greets the visit
ing sovereigns.
It was said likely that many busi
ness houses throughout the city will
close for several hours Friday morn
ing, in honor of the royal visitors.
Hundreds of Roy Scouts will aid
in keeping the streets clear during
the parade. The suggestion that busi
nessmen make Friday's reception the
occasion of a short holiday of a
couple of hours, during the visit, was
made by Mayor Keister. The names
and titles of the members of the
Philadelphia is another city
that is linirrg up in favor of the
retention of daylight saving. New
York bMty has already provided
for it through a city ordinance.
Philadelphia Council now has a
proposed ordinance lying before
one of its committees to continue
the plan in the Quaker City.
The ordinance has been intro
duced in Philadelphia Council by
William M. Lewis, a large manu
facturer. Mr. Lewis emphasized
the necessity of Philadelphia and
ither cities following New York's
step, since all the banking lnstl
lutions, stock exchanges and oth
er houses will observe the act In j

Camden, too, is lining up in |
favor of jthe plan. Mayor Charles
Ellis has promised to take the
plan before Council if the people
line up strong enough behind the
movement, and he believes they
r.rc doing so.
All public schools in the city
will be closed Friday morning, so
that the thousands of school chil
dren of the city can join in the
reception to be given in honor of
King Albert, Queen Elizabeth
and Prince Leopold when they
visit the city.
