a great "get-together" rally in
Woof's hall, in Forest street, this
evening, and to-morrow evening
there will be a joint meeting of the
city and county committee and the
Republican League in the court
house. At the courthouse meetings
the changes in the election laws will
be explained and final instructions
to workers will be issued. The meet
ing promises to be largely attended.
Alderman Hoverter is getting about
the city and said to-day that he
finds the voters responsive and will
be elected by a majority laif&r than
that accorded any candidate for
mayor in years. A last-minute effort
is being made to stir up interest in
behalf of his opponent, but little
real work is being done. Philip S.
Moyer, who is certain of a big ma
jority throughout the county, has
been getting about the city this
week, also paying his respects to
voters in the upper end, and finds
conditions very favorable every
where. Mr. Woyer is one of the best
known of the younger members of
the bar and has been active in Re
publican circles ever since he came
out of school. He is a self-made
man and admittedly a lawyer of

The Sort of Man
I Wanted—
Quite recently it was my pleasure to spend several very interesting
days in your beautiful City of Harrisburg.
But first, let me introduce myself.
A. Swain Mitchell is my name, of Richmond, Va.
I occupy the position at the head of the Scientific Department of the
Associated Optometrists and Opticians of America, Inc.
And the object of my visit?
I was looking for what I considered the most progressive Optometrist
and Optician in your city.
Like Diogenes, I went gunning for my man with a lantern. But MY
lantern was a complete knowledge of the local Optical situation.
I wanted a man of high character; a man who stood head and shoul
ders above the rank and file of the Optical profession and who in
accuracy and reliability could safely be trusted with your eyes and the
eyes of those near and dear to you.
I was looking for a man to represent in your city, the Association
which I represent —The Associated Optometrists and Opticians of
America, Inc. Did I find him?

Democrats tip in the Air
The Democratic machine bosses,
who have laid down on their job this
time, are ail worked up over the
fact that their failure to support
the ticket nominated In September
has come to public notice. They
are making a last-minute effort to
cover up their failures, but nobody
isvfooled. The rank and file of the
Democrats understand the situation
very fully and realize that were it
not for the activity of the Central
Democratic Club, which will hold
a rally to-morrow night, the cam

been allowed to fall flat. That means
a fight when the bosses try to grab

Mr. Bitker said to-day: "It was

Governor Beidleman made a won

They understand that the vote cast

as possible. That, I think, is the
attitude Republicans in Dauphin

Need of New Armory
Is Felt in City
Incidental to an important conference
between Adjutant General Frank D.
Beary, Major General Price and the
recently appointed colonels of die Na
tional Guard of Pennsylvania to-day
the matter of an adequate armory for
the units to be located in Harrisburg
was considered in an informal way. Of
course, this will be a matter for the
final determination of the general head
quarters at the Capitol but it is en
tirely probable that the nJW arinoty
will not be located at the northeast
corner of Walnut street and the Penn
sylvania railroad as has frequently
been discussed, owing to the plans of
the State regarding the property in the
Capitol Park zone.
Inasmuch as the armory will not be
located on State property ii will be up
to Harrisburg to do as other cities
have done and assist the Stan in pro

threatened strike on the verge of
Discontinuance of the production
of coal would more effectually tic up
the industries of the country than
would a strike of any other body of
workers and in addition such action
would cause untold suffering among
millions of the country's inhabitants.
Despite the efforts of the railroads
to furnish extra cars to the mines
for transportation of what fuel is on
hand at the source, it will bo impos
sible to provide an adequate supply
for even a short period.
Country Would Be Hard Hit
The big industries of the country
would be hard hit by the stoppage
of their coal supplies, and domestic
consumers in every city and many
rural communities would soon feel
the effects of the tie up. In the
larger cities few of the big hotels
and flat buildings have facilities for
storing a supply of fuel and
dealers with whom they have con
tracts would be unable to supply
their demands, or they in turn de
pend upon continuous shipments
from the mines.
Railroads also would be seriously
affected by the strike, for in most
cases the supplies of locomotive fuel
would be early exhausted. This
would mean annulment of trains,
and consequent shortages of many
Right up to the hour of the con
ference this morning, miners' of
ficials reiterated that they were will
ing to negotiate with the operators,
but said that the latter hud shown
no inclination to discuss the de
Possibility of Government oper
ation of the mines has been ad
vanced by some of the delegates who
apparently were receptive to the
idea. On the other hand high of
ficials of the organization scouted the
idea of Government control, adding
that they could not see what power
could be exerted to make men work
when they did not want to work.
Mr. Lewis said that the National
Executive's idea that the need for
wartime prohibition had passed be
cause the emergency had ended, ex
pressed exactly the union's attitude
toward its wartime wage contract.
"There is no further use for war
time prohibition, according to the
President," said Mr. Lewis. "Neither
is there further use for the war
time Washington wage agreement.
We, therefore, resent the imputation
that the strike is illegal."
The suggestion that work be con
tinued pending appointment and re
port of an investigating tribunal was
denominated by Mr. Lewis a meas
ure of delay.
"That would mean months of
waiting while men ignorant of min
ing problems studied and tried to
solve them," he said. "Meanwhile
the miners would be working under
the present intolerable conditions."
Advantage to Operators
Other officials of the union agreed
heartily with this view. In addition
some Of them pointed out that the
operators would take advantage of
the delay to work the mines to ca
pacity, piling up reserve stocks and
placing the union at a big disad
vantage should thp tribunal's efforts
come to naught.
Direct negotatlon with the mine
owners, however, would be wel
comed by the union. Vice-President
Lewis, Secretary Green and such
members of the executive board as
had reached here last night were
unanimous in declaring that they
stood ready "as before, to negotiate
a wage scale without reservations."
They emphasized the last two words
and charged that the employers
would not negotiate except on con
ditions which the union men were
powerless to fulfill.
Washington, Oct. 29.—Govern
ment officials think that John L.
Lewis, president of the United Mine
Workers, who had summoned his
full scale committee to meet to
day, will make immediate announce
ment of the reply of his men to
President Wilson's letter. According
to the view held ly Secretary of
Labor Wilson, however, there may
be no answer until the very last mo
ment. An eleventh-hour decision
to postpone or cancel the strike
would not be surprising, it Was said,
but there was some doubt here
as to whether word could be sent
to the men in time to keep them
at work.
The railroad administration is
putting forth every effort to move
the coal already mined to districts
where present stocks are running
dangerously low. Meantime, govern
ment agents were taking a quick
census and trying to find out how
long the stocks on hand might last.
In the absence of an authoritative
statement, stock reports were con
flicting, but It was said that union
estimates of enough to supply de
mands for thirty days were not far
"The government is ready for the.
worst, but is hoping the worst will
not happen, firm in the belief that
the miners will respond patriotically
to the President's appeal and keep
the miner running while -negotiating
a new wage agreement," was the
summing up of a government of
ficial in touch with the situation.
"Everything depends on what is
done at Indianapolis."

Railroad Shopmen Are
Considering Ultimatum
on Their Wage Demands
By Associated Press
Pittsburgh, Oct. 29.—The conven
tion of delegates representing rail
road shopmen of the country, in ses
sion here, had under consideration
to-day the question of presenting an
ultimatum, relating to their demands
for wage increases for craftsmen and
helpers, to the railway employes' de
partment at Washington. A commit
tee. appointed to draw up the ulti
matum. was expected to report back
to the convention before the end of
the day.
Some delegates huve urged that a
strike be declared, effective December
1, unless the demands are met, while
others have expressed the opinion
that such action would injure the
cause of labor.

Forty thousand union miners, em
