"We do not care to criticise the
Supreme Court and have no com
ment to make at this time," was the
only statement forthcoming from A.
W. Slaight, executive member of the
Association Opposed to National
Prohibitions. He added, however,
byway of a "chaser," that his or
ganization was concerned chiefly
with combatting the eighteenth
amendment and had "no drect inter
est" in the war-time act.
But the "wets" had not entirely
lost their optimism. E. It. Huckner,
of the firm of Itoot, Clark, Buckner
and Howland, who have led the legal
forces of the "antis," declared it all
rested with the President and Sen
ate whether Americans were once
more to taste "red liquor." If the
Senate ratifies the Peace Treaty be
fore January 16, when the consti
tutional amendment becomes effec
tive, and the President immediately
issues a proclamation declaring war
and war-time prohibition at an end,
then all will be well, according to
Sir. Buckner.

trucks were all tuned up awuiting
the signal for a dash to the ware

many a printing press. All that was
lacking was inlmunity from the law.
In this connection Assistant Fed
eral District Attorney Matthews, in
charge of prosecution of offenders
against the law in this district, said
there is likely to he an acceleration
of the trials of some 300 offenders
already nrested for Illegal sale of li
quor and a decrease in the number
of arrests of new offenders.
Mr. Matthews said the Federal
courts had been in no haste to pass
upon the 300 cases, owing to the un
certain constitutional status of the
war-time prohibition act.
The sale of surplus Army supplies
from the opening of the government
stores September 25, up to and in

$15,713,572.15. according to a bul

in defense of the policy pursued by
the governmetn in disposing of its
surplus. The report states that the
retail store method was the only
method found practicable, following
attempts to put the food out through
parcels post channels, and stores
conducted by municipalities.

i the Northern

-—MBE in West Chilli
squaque township,
Northumberland county, and appor
tion costs, not including damages,
which will aggregate over $146,000.
Northumberland county also agreed
to reconstruct a county bridge and
to relocate a highway.
This decision, which was given on
a complaint by the State Highway
Department, will make one of the
largest improvement operations in
that section of the State. The share
of the railroad is fixed at $66,002;
Northumberland county, $32,270;
State Highway Department, $32,-
065.40; Public Service Commission,
$15,000, and West Chillisquaque
township: SI,OOO. The county Is to pay
half of the damages and the railroad
and the township to divide the rest.
The State Highway Department
to-day received bids for construction
'of the largest highway program it
has ever submitted. Over 147 miles
are included in the offer. There were
numerous bids and elefiks will be

State farmers' institutes, which
entered upon their third week yes
terday have been very satisfactorily
attended, according to reports which
have been reaching the State De
partment of Agriculture and in a
number of instances special sessions
were held to discuss the lines of
agricultural activity in which the
residents are engaged. The coun
ties where institutes are being held
are Perry, Westmoreland, Tioga and
Huntingdon. The Perry institutes
are in Roseglen, Green Park, Ickes

M. Bower presiding; Huntingdon
having Warrior's Mark and Neff's

The Public Service Commission has
taken the Mount Holly water case
under advisement. Argument wub

Allegheny county wiii receive more
commissions for justices of the peace
and other magistrates from the Gov
ernor's office this month than any
county in the State. Owing to the
fact that it has more boroughs than
any other county and a number of
townships equal to some of the lar
ger counties withal Allegheny has
the largest list of justices and the
bundle of commissions to be sent to
the recorder will be impressive. Most
of its county offices will also be com
missioned by the Governor who is
expected to sign the parchments next
week. A count of notaries public
made recently, showed that Philadel
phia had over 3,000 in commission,
but that Allegheny has over 1,600
who are now in office.
Major General William G. "Price,
commander of the National Guard,
which Is now being organized, is
planning another visit to Pittsburgh
during the coming week. The Gen

units and this week after a visit to
some of the middle sections will be in
Pittsburgh to meet colonels and

Hie Eastern Pennsylvania Rail
ways Company, operating in Schuyl
kill and Carbon counties has been
directed by the Public Service Com
mission to within 10 dayß reduce the
cost of miners' books from $3.50 to
$3, to be at the rate of 6 cents a
ticket, and to make a traffic cheek
particularly in connection with the
zones affecting Summit Hill, Coalport
and Brockton and submit it to the
Commission before February 1. The
decision, written by Commissioners
James S. Benn and Samuel M. Cle
ment, Jr., says that since April last
year there have been wage increases
amounting to 65 per cent with cor
responding increases in fares, which
caused protests from miners' unions.
The decision says that balance sheets
of the company show that the sale
of miners' tickets and operation of
miners' cars is the most unprofitable
item and a monthly deficit results
from the operation of such cars, the
Commission feeling that it should
not order the business to he con
ducted at a loss until next April
when the wage scale of the miners
may change, therefore makes the
ticket rate at 6 cents, which would
about cover the actual cost, effective
until April 1.
Tlie first 1920 automobile license
tags were issued by the State Au

than 100,000 applications have been

new tags are blue and white without

start Wednesday.
Several suggestions for radical
changes in the State government to
be considered by the State Constitu
tional Revision Commission when it
meets here on Wednesday afternoon
have been received at the Capitol,
and along with such others as may
come will be sent to the prop r com
mittees for consideration. Possible
changes in the Constitution have oc
cupied attention of a number of per
sons who have been sending their
views to various departments, the
correspondence on the subject being
decidedly varied. It is probable that
when the Commission reconvenes this
week that it may hear some remarks
by the Governor, but it is understood
that the position he takes is that
the Commission should itself de
termine what to do. Since the Com
mission adjourned Thursday legisla

Some very interesting political de
velopments have been noted in Phil
adelphia the last few days. Mayor-
Elect J. H. Moore has let it be
known that tho same independence
which characterized the selection of
his cabinet appointments will rule
in other appointments. District At
torney 8. P. Rotan, who has been at
odds with the Smith administration
Department of Public Safety for
years, has announced that he will
co-operate with the Moore adminis
tration to the limit. The Moore
councilmeu are getting ready to meet
to outline their plans and the re
formers are demanding that the old
Blankenburg civil service commis
sion be named again. Mayor Smith
is signing numerous ordinances for

If Thin and Nervous
Try Bitro-Phosphate
While excessive thinness might be
attributed to various and subtle
causes in different individuals, it is a
well-known fact that the lack of
phosphorous in the human system is
very largely responsible for this con
It seems to be well established that
this deficiency in phosphorous may
now be met by the use of Bitro-
Phosphate, which can be obtained
from any good druggist in convenient
tablet form.
In many instances the assimilation
of this phosphate by the nerve tissue
soon produces a welcome change—
nerve tension disappears, vigor and
strength replace weakness and lack
of energy and the whole body loses
its ugly hollows and abrupt angles,
becoming enveloped in a glow of per
fect health and beauty and the will
and strength to be up and doing.
CAUTION:—White Bitro-Phosphate
is unsurpassed for the relief of
nervousness, general debility, etc..
those taking it who do not desire to
put on flesh should use extra care in
avoiding fat-producing foods.

"When I was a girl my mother kept Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription in

ance, mother always gave us this medicine, and I never knew it to fail to give I
good results, always building us up in health and strength in a very short !
