street and the great throng burst
into cheers and huzzas that roused
the echoes.
Market street looked well despite
the mist. The crowds, the flags,
Belgian and American, intermingled
in the decorations stretched across
the highway and on the business
buildings, gave the scene a holiday
air. The cars swung out Market
street to Front, up Front to Maclay,
out Maclay to Second, down Second
to the heart of town and thence back
to Front street and up State from
Front to the capitol, where the party
left the machines at the main en
trance of the Capitol and proceeded
through the rotunda to the second
Children Wave Flags
All along the line of march pupils
of the public schools waved Belgian
and American flags and cheered and
sang as the party passed. The boys
and girls stood well back toward the
curb arftl conducted themselves most
admirably. More than one of the.
royal party expressed themselves as
highly pleased with this magnificent
In the Capitol the pupils of Misses
Seller school sang the Belgian an
them. They were the same girls
who on the visit of the French Bluo
Devils here, at the beginning of the
war, sang the French anthem and
War songs for them. The King
smiled and appeared to enjoy hear
ing his own language so well render
ed. Miss Lichtenberger, who trained
the girls was highly complimented.
Capitol Inspected
The visitors were conducted into
the Senate Chamber, where they
viewed the Violet Oakley historic
paintings, and commented at length
upon their beauty and significance.
The King was much impressed and
said so. Thence they went througn
the hall of the House and in the
Governor's reception room the King
was introduced to the members of
the reception committee by the Gov
ernor, assisted by E. J. Stackpole,
Mr. McCormick and others. He visit
ed the Governor's office and when he
had gone again into the rotunda was
heard to remark:
"A beautiful building; a wonder
ful building, and worthy of the
dignity of such a great State."
Through the rotunda the royal
party went to a point in front of
the building where preparations had
been made to plant a tree in honor
of the occasion.
Trees Planted
Walking from the main entrance
of the Capitol down the western ap
proach through a lane of thousands
of people. King Albert, Governor
Sproul, Prince Leopold and other of
ficials of the city and members of
the royal party, stepped to the lawn
just such of the General Hartranft
statue where an evergreen tree was
to be planted.
State police kept the crowds back
and opened the narrow passageway
through which the party walked.
Preparations were complete for
turning the earth over the roots of
the tall tree. As King Albert stepped
up to it he grasped a shovel and i
turned two ehovelsfu! of dirt over
the roots. The heir apparent, Bel
gian officers and city officials stood
nearby. Governor Sproul then turn
ed two shovelsful of earth over the
After the planting Governor
Sproul and King Albert wnlked back
to the waiting automobiles just in
front of the Capitol and while
thousands cheered they were off to
the Steelton plant of the Bethlehem
Steel Company. The King apparent
-1 yenjoyed the tree-planting and,
although there was little time in
which to crowd all the events
planned for the reception, word
came from within the Capitol
building that the planting program
was not to be omitted. •
Go to Steelton
Upon their arrival at Steelton, the
party were taken to the train which
was waiting for them, and left at
once for the lower end of the plant,
where the coke ovens, frog and
switch department, and bridge and
construction departments are lo
cated. Tlie train was composed of
two cars, one an open flat car which
was occupied by the party most of
the time, and the second another
flat car covered with a canopy, and
with seats arranged back to back.
Very few of the royal group cared
to occupy this car, but stood
throughout the trip, interestedly ex
amining every department.
The King was taken in charge by
E. F. Entwisle, assistant general
manager, who was present in the
absence of General Manager Frank
L. Bobbins, Jr. The Crown Prince
Leopold was piloted through the
plant by Henry B. Bent. In almost
every department the royal party
expressed their amazement q.nd ad
miration at the wonderful things
they saw. They were rather disap
pointed at their inability to get to
South Bethlehem, but when they
had completed the tour of the Steel
ton works, they were more than
At the conclusion of the tour, the
King told a representative of the
Telegraph that he wished to convey
to the people of Harrisburg through
the press his appreciation for the
wonderful reception given him and
his unbounded admiration for the in
dustries of America typified in the
steel works which he had just in
Asks Many Questions
During the trip through the steel
plant, the King plied Mr. Entwisle
with questions about the work, ex
hibiting an evident knowledge of
steel work: how many men they em
ployed, where their iron, coke, and
coal came from, what their hours of
labor were, and questions of like sort
came constantly from His Majesty's
lips. He wns particularly impressed
with the two mile and a half length
of the plant, and expressed great
regret that he was unable to stay
longer for a more detailed survey.
Prince questioned Harry
Bent about the works with quite as
much interest as his father, and ac
cording to Mr. Bent, showed an oven
greater knowledge of the steel busi
ness that his royal parent.
A Famous General
One of the most Interested of the
party was General Baron Jacques,
"The lunch

A dish Afk
commander of the Third Belgian
I Division, who is an old fighter, and
wears a breastful of medals. General
Jacques said upon leaving the Capi
tol that although he had traveled
throughout America, he had never
seen a more beautiful and stately
building. He was particularly im
pressed with the paintings in tho
Senate and House of Representatives.
General Jacques is mentioned by
j Mary Roberts Rinehart, in her book,
"Kings, Queens and Pawns." He is
; one of the most famous of the Bcl
! gian leaders.
| After coming from the train, the
King and his party entered the hos
-1 pital of the Bethlehem Steel Plant,
| which was thoroughly inspected.
McCormick l)o<■orated
j After the hospital had been in-
Jspected and the party were waiting
for the machines to be brought up,
the King decorated Vance C. McCor
mick with the order of a Grand Of
ficer of the Crown for the work he
had done on the War Trades Board;
Mayor Keister with the medal of an
| officer of the Order of Leopold 11,
l and the two chauffeurs who drove
j the cars in which the King and tho
| Crown Prince rode. One of these
was Samuel Klair, driver for David
| Kaufman.
The machines left Steelton at 10.45
I and arrived at the Pennsylvania sta
tion shortly before the train pulled
in at 11 o'clock. The royal party
bade farewell to the Governor and
Mrs. Sproul, expressing appreciation
for their courtesy In receiving them;
the Mayor and Mrs. Keister. Mr. Mc
| Cormick, and the 'others who made
up the reception committee.
The Cigar Gift
One of the Amusing incidents of
the stop occurred when Arthur D.
Bacon stepped up to His Majesty just
before the train pulled out, and
offering him a cigar, said:
"Have a cigarf Your Majesty?"
"Don't care if I do," said the King,
and immediately lighted it, smoking
it until the train pulled out.
General Jacques was very inter
ested in the figures given him by-
Adjutant General Frank D. Beary.
who told him of the number of men
Pennsylvania put into the war. The
General was here in 1918 when the
Belgian Recruiting Mission travel
ed through the country ,and remem-
I bered Harrisburg well.

Presents Bouquet
to Queen Elizabeth
One of the incidents which
brought applause and tears, was the
presentation of a bouquet to Queen
Elizabeth at the Pennsylvania Kail
road Station, when the Queen was
enroute to her car. Katherine
Winkleman, the smallest pupil in
the Open Air School made the pre
sentation. Attached to the bouquet
was an envelope with greetings from
the Open Air pupils.
Queen Elizabeth was unable to
visit the school and Miss Marian
C. Willtams, principal of the school,
brought the little girl to the station
where she was given an opportunity
to hand the bouquet to the Queen.
The latter thanked the little' pupii
and also Miss Williams and patting'
the little girl's cheek remarked, "1
will certainly remember you and
your schoolmates, and ant sorry thai
I could not get to Bee you all." Miss
Willlame was requested to convey
the Queen's regrets to the scholars
and extend to them her best wishes.
Katherine Winkleman is a daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Winkle
man, 1111 State street.
Ambassador Whitlock Is
Charmed With liarrisburg
The United States Ambassador to
Belgium, Brand Whitlock, who
made the tour with the president of
the Chamber of Commerce, ex
pressed enthusiastic pleasure over
the beautiful city, its river front and
the old colonial homes immediately
north of Market street, in Front,
which impressed him as a bit of The
Hague. He commented with en
thusiasm on the old Maelay Mansion
at Front and South streets, and said
that ought to be the Governor's
home. He was interested in the
Civic Club as the home of the ac
tivities of the women of Harrisburg
and was likewise impressed with the
wonderful scenic features of the en
tire drive along the river. He said:
"This Susquehanna river is beauti
ful and your people have certainly
realized its possibilities and the
beautiful scenio surroundings of the
city. I, didn't realize, although I
have been through Harrisburg on
the railroad trairtk many times,
what a really beautiful city you
have. 1 have been Impressed since
returning home with our wonderful
country, and King Albert has fre
quently spoken of the atmosphere
which seems to indicate the charac
ter of the American people. He
has been more than delighted with
his visit and with the splendid hos
pitality which has bean shown him
and his party throughout the tour."
As Ambassador Whitlock enter
ed the main entrance to the Capitol
he ugain expressed the greatest
pleasure in the beauty of the build
ing, its wonderful design and the
good taste manifested on every
side. He had heard of the scandal
ous stories of the furnishings, but
declared with emphasis "these
things should be forgotten and we
ought to appreciate and enjoy the
wonderful art and the architectural
beauty of this building." He was
likewise impressed with the grand
stairway, the massed lines of Red
Cross workers and convalescent
soldlerß from the Base Hospital at
Carole, the singing of the Seiler
school In the balcony over the grund
stairway and the general features of
the reception here. He spoke
many times during the tour along
the city of the characteristic Ameri
can features which wero everywhere
manifested here. He was much in
terested also in the wonderful prog
ress of Harrisburg and its develop
ment along esthetic and practical
lines. He wants to return some day
when he may make a more thorough
inspection of the many delightful
things which he saw in a hurried
way. He was interested in the story
of the wonderful development of the
Capitol Park zone, the Memorial
viaduct and the design which has
been provided for the Harrisburg
commemoration of soldiers.
Owing to an injury to one of
bis eyes in New York City, Mr.
Whitlock found it necessary to omit

Decorations Put Up
During the Night
Postmaster Prank C. Sites and the
committee on decoration labored
most of the night completing the
street decorations which were most
attractive and in doing the things
which had been referred to that
committee, after it was finally deter
mined that there would be a street
parade. Joseph Saltzer and his as
sistants were on the job from the
time the button was pressed and
their work has been complimented
throughout the day. Commissioner
Gross had the Mt. Vernon Hook und
Ladder Company sent to aid last
night in the stretching of lines over
the streets and for the display of
the American and Belgian flags.

Lieutenant Roy Williams, aid to
Admiral Long, representative of the
Navy with the King, is a former
classmate at Yale of Colonel Edward
J. Stackpole, Jr., and said that the
reception given the party at Harris
burg surpassed in good taste and in
formal sincerity, any reception that
they have received on the entire
trip. Lieutenant Williams regretted
very much that he was unable to
spend any more time in this city, but
; said that the party must be in New
York this afternoon. Last week

| We Have Decided to Hold Our Special Exhibit and Sale j
| Of Furs J
| Over Saturday - |
Despite the rain the first day of this event, Thursday, was very successful. A great many
of our regular clientele, as well as new patrons, purchased furs here during this occasion.
However, we believe the rain kept away some women who had decided to attend this
exhibit, and therefore, it is advisable that we continue the event until" Saturday night at 6
o'clock when the store closes.
The display is especially notable for the unusually large as
sortment of scarfs and muffs in the popular skunk fur. Ermine
| is also one of the particularly favored furs.
We believe this is the largest showing of Hudson seal coats
that has ever been presented in Harrisburg in a single exhibit
Hudson Seal is especially fashionable now and is always good. A Hudson Seal Coat can
be worn for years and be in good taste. Furthermore, a Hudson Seal Coat gives years of service
and becomes a profitable investment as each year goes by. Some of the Hudson Seal Coats
have collars of Hudson Seal while others are trimmed in contrasting furs.
There Are Many Fur Coats Such As Mole, Marmot
and Squirrel, All of Which Are Very Fashionable
This entire exhibit is much larger than any that has been to Harrisburg and considering
the fact that these furs are priced attractively and are presented in the same light as all Schleis-
H ner high class merchandise it is to your advantage to purchase now.
