Republican Candidate
Tells How He Fought
the Saloons in Hunt
ingdon County
In Big Lancaster Meeting the Demo
cratic Candidate Points to the Sen-1
ator's Vote Against the Ejection
of Lorimer
(Special to the Star-Independents
Chambersburg, Oct. 7. —Dr. Martin
G. Brumbaugh, Republican nominee for
Governor of Pentfsylvania, addressed
1,200 persons in the Orpheum Opera
House last night after a day of cam
paigning through Cumberland, Pulton
and Franklin counties. The doctor met
with an enthusiastic reception every
where he went. Among those who were
at the meeting hero was M. C. Kennedy,
president of the Cumberland Valley
Railroad, a Democrat. A long list of
vice presidents was announced and
their names were ' n print, but it is an
open secret that several declined to
serve because they propose to vote
against Senator Penrose.
For the first time during the pres
ent campaign Dr. Brumbaugh discussed
his own temperance record. He spoke
with apparent feeling as he said:
"When, in 1888, there was pending
in this State an amendment to the Con
stitution prohibiting the sale of liquor
in Pennsylvania 1 was the secretary
of the anti-saloon group in my home
county, and Mr. Simpson, of Hunting
don, who was the president, with my
self went over the county, stumped it
and carried it by 705 majority for the
white map of Pennsylvania.
"There are men in this room who
voted with me on that occasion because
they believed as I did on that prop
osition. Why, those who charge differ
ent are character assassins and defam
ers of men's good names, who would
try to make you believe that I am not
square on that proposition. I defy
them all and appeal to you men of
Pennsylvania whether any man any
where in this State has a record or has
made a declaration more plain and posi
tive than mv own on that question."'
Brumbaugh in Carlisle
In session at Carlisle Dr. Brumbaugh
found tlie annual convention of the Di
rectors of the Poor, representing every
county in the State, and it was to this
body he delivered his address on the
conservation of humanity.
The meeting at Shippensburg had
unusual interest, for George H. Stew
art, one of the State's largest land
owners, banker, president of the Cum
berland Valley State Normal School,
one of Colonel Roosevelt's chief sup
I porters in the State two years ago and
i a brother of Supreme Court Judge
| Stewart, introduced Dr. Brumbaugh,
I and predicted that he would be elected
Governor by one of the largest ma
jorities ever recorded. John Lindner,
at the head of the big shoe factory at
Shippensburg, a former Democratic can
didate for Congress, also announced
that he would support Dr. Bruinabugh.
Raps Penrose's Lorimer Vote
Lancaster, Pa., Oct. 7. —Affirming
that William Lorimer, the Illinois ma
| chine leader who was ejected from his
seat in the United States Senate, stood
I for exactly the same sort of leader
j ship in that State for which Senator
! Penrose stands in Pennsylvania, A.
1 Mitchell Palmer last night called upon
| Senator Penrose to defend, if he could,
j the vote which he cast in 1911 to keep
Lorimer in the Senate.
The Democratic Senatorial candi
| date's denunciation of Penrose's rec
ord regarding the Illinois Senator's
case was delivered in the Lancaster
county court house before an audience
that filled the auditorium.
The meeting was preceded by a
street parade from the Spencer House
to the court house, Mr. F'almer, Vance
C. McCormick, "Farmer" Creasy and
William N. McNair, candidate, for Sec
retary of Internal Affairs, marching at
the head of the procession.
A feature of the meeting was the
speech delivered by Henry C. Niles, of
Yoik, long prominently identified with
independent political movements, who
announced for the first time that he
would support the Democratic ticket.

Williamsport, Oct. 7.—Gifford Pin

his meeting place to hear his remarks
and to shake his hand as he greeted
them from an automobile. Swinging

New Yorkers Dedicated Fine Monu
ment to General Wadsworth
Gettysburg, Pa., Oct. 7. —On the
beautiful ridge overlooking Gettys
burg's historic railroad cut, and the
site of the first day's carnage, veterans
of Uie commands under General James
S. Wadsworth gathered yesterday aft
ernoon to* do honor to his memory and
to witness the dedication of New
York's memorial to the gallant soldier.
All the regiments under his command
were well represented by veterans
from the Empire State.
As an escort or honor, Troops L and
M, of the Fifth United States Cavalry
followed the grand marshal of the dedi
cation parade. General John A. Reyn
olds, of Rochester, prominent at Get
tysburg, was with Battery L», New
York Artillery, which figured in the
first day'jt battle. Following the regu
lar army men came the New York
monument commission, the Citizens'
band, of Gettysburg, and the veterans
of General Wadsworth'a command.
Colonel Ijewis R. Stegau, chairman
of the commissioners, who directed the
erection of the memorial, introduced
Master Jeremiah Wadsworth, great
grandson of the General. The young
man grasped the cord which held the
large American flag over the bronze
statue, and as he pulled it the folds
dropped gracefully, and the heroic fig
ure of Wadsworth stood out beautiful
ly in the light of a faultless autumn
day. The guns boomed forth a major
general's salute, and the oration of the
day by Captain Alfred M. Mill# of
Buford's Cavalry, followed. General
Horatio C, King also made an address
and remarks were made by Major
James W. Wadsworth, son of the Gen
eral and president of the National Sol
diers' Home, and by Jamos W. Wads
worth, Jr., his son. The poem of dedi
cation was read by J. I. C. Clarke.
Dauphin County Director Tells of Con

Carlisle, Pa., Oct. 7.—Cuts of more
than six dollars a day in the cost of
fuel, savings of 60 per cent, in the
clothing bills, system substituted for
chaos, profligacy displaced by sav

It was told here yesterday by Poor
Director Charles L. Boyer at the annual
conference of Dirertors of the Poor and
charity workers.
For Dauphin countians, it. will be
difficult to believe the transformation
at the poor house outside Harrisburg.
Director Boyer told the story bit by
bit and with such evidence that there
was no denying the progress he and
his colleague, Harry Walters, have
made. He showed among other
things, that by economy, $14,000 was
spent in needed improvements out of
the usual appropriation for mainte
Mr.- Boyer paid high tribute to
Steward Barber, without whose co-op

Stop Falling Hair and Itching Scalp
There is one sure way that has never
failed to remove dandruff at once, and
that is to dissolve it, then you destroy
it entirely. To do this, just get about
four ounces of plain, common liquid
arvon from any drug store (this is all
you will need), apply it at night when
retiring, use enough to moisten the
scalp and rub it in gently with the
finger tips.
By morning, most if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or four
more applications will completely dis
solve, and entirely destroy, every single
sign and trace of it, no matter how
much dandruff you may have.
You will find all itching and digging
of the scalp will stop instantly and your
hair will be fluffy, lustrous, glossy, silky
and soft, and look and feel a hundred
times better.
If you value your hair, you should get
rid of dandruff at once, for nothing de
stroys the hair so quickly. It not only
starves the hair and makes it fall out,
but it makes it stringy, straggly, dull,
dry, brittle and lifeless, and everybody
notices it. Adv.

A. Mitchell Palmer Writes to Secre
tary McAdoo on Subjoct
Washington, Oct. 7.—'Representa
tive A. Mitchell Palmer, Democratic,
nominee for the United States Senate
in Pennsylvania, has asked Secretary
of the Treasury McAdoo to restore the
old Twelfth internal revenue district
in Pennsylvania, with headquarters at
Scranton. Secretary McAdoo received
from Mr. Palmer yesterday this letter:
"To the Honorable, the Secretary of
the Treasury.
"Dear Mr. Secretary—The legisla
tive, .judicial and executive appropria
tion bill, recently signed by the Presi
dent, authorizes the establishment of
64 internal revenue districts in the
country, an increase of one district.
This change in the law was secured
mainly through my efforts in the de
sire to have the Twelfth Pennsylvania
district restored. You will remember
that this district was joined with
the Ninth district by executive order
of President Taft, and 1 have appeared
before you several times urgently re
questing that it be re-established. In
view of the fact that the law now
provides for the establishing of an
additional district, I trust you will
have an order issued re-establishing the
Twelfth Pennsylvania district with the
same boundaries as it formerly had
and with headquarters at Scranton.
"Hoping for your early and favor
able consideration, I am, yours very
"A. Mitchell Palmer."
Secretary McAdoo will pass upon
Mr. Palmer's request within a few
days. It is believed here that the dis
trict will be restored.

"The Movie Girl," which is a com

comedy playing at popular prices, gave

no pretense in out-rivalling the expen

affords the audience more to laugh at

"Every Woman
Fresh from long engagements in the
lairgo cities, the dramatic spectacle.
"Every Woman," with all its v»st
scenic, effects and army of people, will
be presented by Henry W. Savage at
thQ Majestic theatre, '.Monday after
noon and evening. Everywhere this
great spectacle has been presented iS
has created a sensation. Generations
of theatregoers have witnessed no more
moving panoramic pageant than
"Every Woman," conceived as it was
by an inspired brain and executed bv
a master craftsman without regard to
monetary outlay. It represents all that,
is great, all that is lofty, in spectacle,
opera and drama. It is really three
great productions merged into one.
At the Orpheum
The good things at the Orpheum
this week are many. Many as there are
attractions, only of course, a few are
better than the rest. The best is Irene
Franklin, who is easily the most clever
artist that has appeared at the Or
pheum, and who is here again in an
entirely new repertoire of songs, equal
ly as as any that she sang here
j before. And her gowns are simply
! elaborate in the numbers, where such
wardrobe is appropriate. Some of her
character numbers, such as her "kid"
songs, are clothed to fit the number,
but in each instance the song is pleas
ing aud "nice." The new songs Miss
Franklin is delighting us with this week
include "The Police Woman," a suf
frage number in which Miss Franklin
does a humorous version of a female
"Oop." For it she dons a white mil
itary suit, a sort of policeman's cap,
and lo and behold, her club has a
powder puff and mirror in the end of
it. You'll want to hear her tell how
the women scoff her, and how lenient
she is with her handsome male prison
ers. In this song like all the others,
Miss Franklin injects all kinds of
facial expressions that are rich as they
are unusual.
And she has a great "kid" song
this time, too. It's cgjied "Nobody's
Baby." "All Wrong," is the title of
a fine comedy number that we haven't
heard before and "Makes Me Sick"
is the wail of the little girl, who must
go to bed when her sister has a beau.
All her songs are tuneful and inter
esting and delivered in Miss Franklin's
inimitable manner. And Frank Milton
and the nifty De I.»ong Sisters are. here
again, doing a new edition of their
screeching "rube" playlet "Twenty
Minutes Layover at Alfalfa Junction."
This trio is one of the most popular
that plays the Orpheum and their new
fun and song and saxophone playing is
proving the usual riot. Mirth, song and
variety are blended into a most deserv
ing offering at the Orpheum this week.
At the Colonial
A clever trio of trillers and funsters
of the first water; a sketch featuring
Eddie Carr and company and a mighty
clever German comedian, are the three
vaudeville acts that are pleasing pa
trons of the Busy Corner immensely
for the first half of the week. But the
Eddie "Carr act is the cream of the bill.
It comprises three players of ability
and they have a splendid comedy ve
hicle, written by Alack and Orth, and
they know how to make the most of
the laughable situations and bright
lines. "East Lynne" in multiple reels
is delighting the admirers of artistic
moving picture features. adv.
