Says Republican Party
Will Give "Every
Wise Legislature Pro
Candidate for Governor Gives Pledge
to Reorganize Departments That l
Are Shown to Require It—Palm«»
Again Hammers Penrose
(Special -to the Star-Independent.)
Bradford, Pa., Oct. Ift.—Backing up
his earlier declarations in favor of
child and women's labor laws, a work
men's compensation and an employer ■>
liability act, Dr. Martin G. Brumbaugh,
nominee for Governor of the Republic
an party, at a mass meeting here Sat
urday night specified in detail the kind
of measures lie will .1 tnand if elected
Governor, and more fervently than lie
has done in the past urged election of
a Legislature that will help him "make t
good" on his platform promises.
"The Republican party," lie de- .
flared, ''chastened for its conservatism.!
must turn, and now does turn, to the !
serious and honorable obligation of giv |
ing to the people of this Commonwealth |
cverv wise and beneficent legislative !
provision for safeguarding ami protect-]
iiig the welfare of rite people. In a|
broad way this is a In ge -.ocia! program •
of legislative reform."
Dr. Brumbaugh's Program
Speaking ui detail of his legislative
program. Dr. Brumbaugh said:
"This program includes a workmen's j
. on.pensation act. which the last Legis- ,
lature should have passed and which '
the incoming Legislature, if 1 am elert-l
ed Governor, will be called upon to |
"The present employers' liability net
I wish to see so amended and advanced j
as to make it equal to the best upon :
the statute books of any State.
"The present law to c-aie for our j
women who labor is not a satisfactory '
one, nu<l I stand unequivocally not i
only for a just but n chivalrous law. j
"I favor an advanced child labor I
law as will secure the highest efficiency j
by retaining our children in school as'
long as possible, bv reducing the hours I
and improving the conditions under
which they shall work, and by p ovid-l
ing a gradual and not sudden transi- j
tion from school to industry, and I s mil ]
insist that no child holding an employ- \
nient certificate shall be permitted j
when not actually en ployed to loaf'
upon the streets."
Besides a pledge to reorganize, sys
tematize and make efti-ieiit the State j
charities, State highways and other ue
partments, Dr. Brumbaugh, reiterating
his pledge on local option, said:
Stands for Local Option
"I cannot too tsrongly emphasize I
that in my primary declaration 1 reit I
erated a lifelong belief in tne local i
option movement. I believe it is the i
duty of the 'legislature and the Execu- j
tive to give to the people of each coua- :
ty the right to decide for themselves ■
whether licenses for the sale of intoxi
rating liquors shall be issued. ! have j
said this frequently and so definitely
that 1 trust the people will not be mis '
led by those who for th. sake of win- '
ning votes wilfully and deliberately
misrepresent otheis, for I will not make
a promise to obtain a vote which I will
not fulfill after the vote is given."
The meeting, held in the Lyceum
theatre and attracting an audience fill
ing every seat, closed for the present i
the campaign in the western counties.
Dr. Brumbaugh left late Saturday night

Palmer Speaks in Altoona
Aitoona, Ha., Oct. 19.—After an i
hour's rest at the home of Arthur B.

gressman-at large, the Democratic nomi
nees launched one of the most enthusi- 1
astic meetings of their fall campaign !

When A. Mitchell Palmer, the candi
date for I nited States Senator, was in- '
Reduced the audience gave him a pro-j
longed reception and the women, of I
whom there were a number, gave hiin
a Chautauqua salute. .Mr. Palmer
launched into his speech immediately,
reiterating his previous statements that
the issue of the campaign was Penrose
Krie. Pa., Oct. 19.—Following one of!
the most strenuous days of the cam
paign. Vance t. McCormick, Democrat
ic candidate for Governor, and William
Draper Lewis, withdrawn Washington
party candidate, arrived in Erie Satur- 1
day evening in time for the reception ,
arranged for them at the Hotel Law
rence, and afterward were the principal '
speakers at a big mass meeting.
McCormick hit liaid at the Republic-|
an regime for the condition of the State
roads. "After over a hundred miles of
mud, I am glad to be present," he said.
"Penroseism is the main issue," ho
continued. "I challenge Brumbaugh to
tell where he stands on that issue. You
listen in vain for an answer. I stand
for local option.
Mr. Lewis prefaced his address with
the words, "I come to ask the voters
of this section to cast their votes for
the bes f man c\er nominated for Gov
ernor of any State " He said Penn
sylvania was paying more for road
buildiug than any other State in the
I'nion, with worse results.
Colonel at Odds With Flinn?
Philadelphia, Oct 19.—1n a state-I
ment issued by the Republican State
Committee yesterday it was declared
lhat Colonel Roosevelt's heart was not
in the Bull Moose fight in this State,
and it was broadly intimated that "in
fide information"' bad been received
j that the former President would con- ]
tinue to hand out only love taps to |
j Penrose during his tour of the State. |
I The statement, which also predicted a
I prospective open break between Flinn
! and the < oloitel in the near future,
stated iu part:
•' A few weeks ago Colonel Roosevelt
| spoke in Philadejpnia, and his address,
| from a Washington party standpoint.
■ was very disappointing. Now he is
billed to make a few days' tour of the
State in compliance with a promise he
made some time ago, but those close to
him admit that his heart is not in the
campaign in Pennsylvania. Flinn's in
sistence that Colonel Roosevelt came
nere for the purposo of reciprocating
what Elinn did for the Progressives in
i a financial way in 1912 has not made
! the Pittsburg l !] contractorJboss any too
| popular in the social circles of Oyster
i Bay. An open break between Flinn
I and Roosevelt would not surprise those
| on the inside.''
i In the same statement it wa< charged
rhat the Bull Moose leaders had ar
I uinged to mail l'rom Oyster Bay a mil
lion post cards containing a iplate of
Colonel Roosevelt 's signature, without
■ his knowledge of this move.

A mi WAY TO
Stop Falling Hair and Itching Scalp—
There is one sure way that has never
! failed to remove dandruff at once, ami
that is to dissolve it, then yon 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.
j Mv 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 yon may have.
You will find all itching and digging
of the scalp will slop 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
destroys 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, ami every
body notices it. Adv.
