sion reports it is believed that close
to 100 does were killed by hunters
of the State during the deer season,
50 arrests having Been already made
by game wardens on charges of
illegal shooting of does and fawns.
In most of these cases heavy fines
were imposed. Carcasses were con
fiscated in some instances.
County officials of Pennsylvania
will be called upon by the State
Department of Agriculture to vigor
ously enforce the dog license code of
1917 during the coming year. All
registration will expire this week
and many thousands of dogs must
be registered. In some sections of
the State complaints have been made
of dogs running at large and destroy
ing sheep and of districts where 'he
license law is not enforced very
strictly. The State will call upon
counties for reports as to the manner
in which the law was carried out.
including the shooting of unlicensed
dogs in rural districts.
Numerous applications for certifi
cates for the operation of jitneys in
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh will be
disposed of by the Public Service
Commission during the coming week
and some will be rejected because
the applicants will not have satisfied
the Commission as to responsibility
in case of accidents or because of
failure to take out citizenship papers
after long residence in this country.
The latter feature has been brought
out at a number of hearings. The
Commission will also insist upon
posting of the scale of charges.
Automobile license tags arc being
sent out by the State Highway De
partment's automobile division at
the rate of over 5,000 a day and ap
plications are coming in almost at
the rate of 10,000. The force will
work day and night this week and
with additioal help it is expected
that the first of the year will find
shipments well advanced. The rush
for automobile licenses is causing
heavy receipts, virtually all of which
is in the form of certified checks.
Thousands of dollars are taken in
every day. The department has re
newed its warning that persons who
display only IS2O tags in advance
of January 1 are liable to arrest as
the 1919 tags must be used until the
end of the year.
The Attorney General's Depart
ment has started proceedings to close
tip the various receiverships of finan
cial, insurance and other concerns
which have been hanging fire for
years and has called up receiver
ships and auditors to file reports.
Some of the receiverships are un
derstood to have run over five years
and the State will likely scale down
fees in certain cases. In event that
action is not taken, it is possible that
rules to show cause why reports
should not be filed will bo asked.
A drive Is being made in Phila

C. Knox appeared ns attorney for
the Henry C. Frick estate to-day in

Bryan Weaving Web
to Make 1920 Issue
"Labor Against Capital"
Washington. Dec. 29.—William Jen
nings Bryan, the radical, the preacher
in politics, a popular figure in Demo
cratic ranks, is to the front seeking
to make the chief issue in 1920 the
war between labor and capital.
Inspired by a desire for vindication
revenge against the Wilson Adminls
| tration, the "Commoner" is working
i for a situation which will give him
' control of the party and make it pos
sible to stampede the convention for
| himself or pick the nominee.
As the politicians and leaders in
public thought scan the horizon for
Presidential candidates and appeal
ing planks for the 1920 platforms, ft
is becoming more evident that the is
sues which will divide the two parties
will be industrial aspects which the
country faces, the fight for supremacy
between capital and labor as evi
denced in the steel and coal strike and
the demands of railroad employes
for increased wages.
Better Times Coming
With Prohibition
The Rev. E. E. Snyder, pastor of
St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, last
evening predicted better times for
the new year with prohibition reign
ing in America. The Rev. Harvey
Klaer, pastor of the Covenant Pres
byterian Church spoke on the Lea
gue of Nations, deploring the play
ing of politics and pleading a gospel
of unselfishness for nations and in
dividuals. The Rev. W. E. Dough
erty, pastor of the First United
Brethren Chusfh, spoke for "New
Year's Resolutions, made in good
faith and kept."
Speaking at the Central Y. M. C.
A., the Rev. Dr. Robert Bagnell, pas
tor of Grace Methodist Church, de
clared that the new year was not the
time for post mortems and alibis,
but the time to pick out the weak
spots of the past year and strengthen
them. He compared life to golf,
saying that if people would only stay
in the fairway, in the straight path,
they would be bound to succeed.
The Rev. Irvin E. Deer, State su
pervisor of the Pennsylvania rural
survey for the Interchurch World
Movement, spoliv last evening at
the Paxton Presbyterian Church. He
declared that not enough young peo
ple were giving themselves to the
church, and that no encouragement
was given in the home for young
men to go into the ministry. As an
example of the way the church deals
with her servants. Dr. Deer said
that in one state every county alms
house has at least one aged preach
er in it.

It is claimed that at present Ger

here on the products for which she
herself can furnish raw materials.
Lack of shipping facilities is said to

low as to kill all competition.
Leading Norwegian businessmen
have been made rather pessimistic
by this condition.

Coal Operators See
Price War in Spring

operators here fear a price-cutting
war next spring, due to the fact that
it is easier to keep the mines oper
ating at cost or even a litle below

operators to establish a sliding sea
sonal scale of coal prices and to ar
range for sliding freight rates with
