Supervisor Messner Tells His Plan For
Saving the Money of the County
Forty members to-day attended the;
annual convention of the Dauphin!
County Supervisors' Association which
was held in the Grand Jury room of i
the court house. Half a dozen address-'
es were made during the morning ses-[
sion, all dealing with road and bridge |
building and maintenance.
The officers all were re-elected by'
acclamation as follows: President, K. I
iD. Messner, Upper Paxton township; i
first vice president, .1. K. Zoll, Berry i
township; second vice president, C. F.I
Harman. Wayne township; secretary,
1. F. Bogner, Middle Paxton township;'
treasurer, George Aungst, Lower Pax-;
ton township.
Chairmen Messner, who reminded
ihio fellow supervisors that "I am a
talkative Dutchman," delighted the,
assemblage with chatty talks on his'
experience as a supervisor in the up-)
per end of the county. One way to;
learn whether the roads are bail or!
good, he said, is to accept an invita-1
tion to ride in an automobile owned
and driven by a man "who is always)
ki kin? for better roads." .Mr. Mess
ner had the experience, he said, and !
he had his ups and downs—not pleas j
ant ones —when he went over the j
The chairman said he was elected to J
« six-year term as supervisor by a'
margin of but ten votes and he added: ]
"The next thing I knew everybody:
was asking me about the good roads;
I advocated.''
He added that he jumped into the
work and hustled and refused to let j
contractors make n profit on bridges j
that had to be built in his district,!
*'bv doing the work myself." Three
bridges were constructed for less than j
SI,OOO through that method, he said,
and he declared they would have cost j
much more if a contractor built them. |

One Man Dead and 9230.000 Worth
of Property Destroyed in Blaze
at OirardviUe
Pottsville, Pa., Nov. 19.—Fire
which caused the death of one man
and the loss of $250,000 worth of
property and stock, was finally got un
der control at Oirardville this morning
by the use of dynamite and the inter
vention of a large brick building after
the water supply of that drought-affect
ed section had become exhausted.
In all fourteen buildings, used as
store rooms and residences combined,
were completely destroyed. The tire'
companies from a half dozen surround-1
ing towns sent assistance and water |
was pumped from the black coal dirt J
creek which flows through the town.
One man is believed to have had his
back broken. Several dead may be un
der the ruins, one having thus far been |
recovered burned to a crisp and his
identity not established.

burned until 8, destroying ten busi- j

Isaac Miller Harrisburg Representative
of Great Corporation
The story of the General Accident j
Corporation, is one of a successful en- 1
aagement covering a period of at least;
35 years.
Isaac Miller, with offices at Second
and Walnut streets, fourteen years
ago, became the Harrisburg representa
tive ot" this great corporation. Many
of our residents have been covered
with protection, year after year by its
policies. The local list of patrons in-1
elude the best and most conservative I
risks in Central Pennsylvania.
This corporation and the Harris
burg agency has won continued favor j
from its patrons on account of its fair
ness and promptness in dealings with |
The magnitude of protection given i
in Pennsylvania alone is enormous. !
The numerous letters received by'
Mr. Miller from many of the patrons
to whom during this period he has paid j
indemnity, express assurances of high!
commendation and esteem and are the j
best kind of local endorsement.
Patrick T. Sullivan Again Files Request i
to Move From Park Zone
With his hotel at 727-729 State!
streejt. within the zone soon to be taiken j
over by the State for the new Capitol I
Park, Patrick T. Sullivan to-day filed
wit'h tfhe Prothonotary an application
for the transfer of his re.tail liquor li
cense to ISI9 Noryi Third street, in
Eleventh ward. The Court will pass on
the application on December 8.
Sullivan's proposed new location is
the building to which B. Leslie Potiter,
early in 1913. sought in vain to remove
his hostelry from 528 State street, in
the Eighth ward. Last year Sullivan,
too. made an unsuccessful effort to re
locate his 'hotel, at that time planning
to go to 554 South Cameron street.

2,000 Voluntarily Sur

ture Leon and Other
Garrisons Along Line
American Consular Agent Carothers,
With Villa, Reports There Has Been
No Fighting Since Southern Move
ment Began and Predicts None
Hii Associated Press,
Washington, Nov. 19. —Two thou
sand Carranza troops voluntarily sur
rendered to General Villa when he took
Leon and other garrisons all along the
line are changing allegiance to the
Northern chief, as he marches on to
ward Mexico City.
American Consular Agent Carothers,
with Villa, reported there had beeu no
fighting since the southward movement
began and ventured his opinion that
there would be no hostilities becm°e
the rank and file of the Constitution
alist army seemed to favor Villa.
Leon was taken yesterday without
the firing of a shot and other reports
tell of tiie occupation of Irapuato, and
Guanajuato, also without resistance.
No report was received here of the
allege! interruption by Villa of the
telegraphic conferences between Gen
eral Gutierrez and General Gonzales
but it was thought in official quarters
that Villa had ordered ali telegraphic
communication with the troops south
of him to cease so that the enemy
would be unable to learn of the on
coming of his forces.
The general expectation in official
circles to-day was that General Villa
would reach Mexico City without much
difficulty, fighting perhaps one battle as
his troops clashed with those of Obre
gon or Gonzales near the capital.
Mexico City, Nov*. 19. It is report
ed hero that General Carranza has de
clared Onizaba, the new capital of the
new republic. Mexico City despite the
dispatch of troops to the north to meet
the forces of General Villa, is quiet,
but a feeling of tenseness prevails.
No train arrived here from Vera
Cruz last n'rght. It is reported that
railroad traffic has been stopped at
Esperanza hut the reason for it is not
known here.
Laredo, Tex., Nov. 19. — Discovery
of an alleged filibustering plot against
Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, was announced
here to-dav Pour Mexicans were ar
rested here late yesterday and another
was arrested in San Antonio. They
were said to be former Villa men. They
were charged with recruiting on Ameri
can soil.
Continued I'rovu l'ntze.
Some naval officers have urged that the
ci niseis lie withdrawn.
Officials believed, however, that mis
sionary interests for which the cruis
ers were dispatched to Turkish waters
might insist the vessels be retained as
a moral force making for the protection
of the American missions and interests.
Ambassador Morgenthau hail been
directed to inquire i.f ,iie Turkish gov
ernment why laud forces had fired on
the Tennessee's launch as it steamed
from Vourlah to Smyrna to investigate
conditions at the American coysulate
and the commanders of the Tennessee
and her sister ship. North Carolina, in
neartbv waters, had instructions to
make no nnve that might embarrass the
Washington government.
President Wilson was determined
that the I nited States should not. be
come involved in trouble with Turkey
and confidence was expressed that if
the Turkish officers had acted without
authority of their government or the
firing was unjustified by naval proce
dure that the Porte would apologize.
May Have Been Friendly Warning
Secretary Daniels summed up his
view of the incident by declaring he
believed detailed reports would show
that the firing was intended as a
friendly warning to prevent the launch
from entering mined waters.
The Tennessee to-day was at Chios
Protection and friendship for Amer
ican citizens in Turkey frequently have
been pledged by the Porte, but since
that time the United States has as
sumed charge of diplomatic interests of
the allies, with whom Turkey is now at
war, resulting in conditions marked by
delicate responsibility. Activities b'v
some Mohammedan leaders caused ap
prehension on the part of the Ameri
cans, as well as French and British sub
.jects, and that was reported by the
United States Consul at Smyrna to Am
bassador Morgenthau.
When an investigation of conditions
at the consulate was determined upon
the Tennessee stood off at Vourlah and
sent a launch on the way to Smyrna.
Under navy regulations, it was said,
Captain Decker would have been .justi
fied in attempting to enter the harbor
and inquire into affairs at the consulate,
regardless of whether Smyrna port was
closed or not.
Apparently, however, he did .lot con
tinue on his way lo Smyrna, but belief
was expressed that had the consulate
beon in imminent danger the Tennessee
would not have left the vicinity.

Invitations to high school students

the Tabernacle Baptist church, across
the street from the Central High
school building, to students of both
morning and afternoon sessions at, Cen
tral, and in the To.-li auditorium after
the dismissal of school there.
A thousand students, boys and girls,
are expected to turn out to-morrow
night. Those from Central will meet
iu front of their building, and those
from Tech in front of theirs. Prof.
Spooner. in an automobile, will start
both parades. The students will march
to the tabernacle singiug school songs,
uiving school yells, blowing horns and
dying pennants—anything to attract
attention. .
Central will enter on one iflde of the
tabernacle and Tech on the other. Seats
will be reserved for the marchers in the
front of the 'building. After they enter
they will be in charge of the meeting
for a short time, giving their songs
and their yells.

part of two days in a successful search
for the errors. Only after a complete
examination of something like 2,500
accounts, and n't least two revisions of
t'hose same items, did they obtain fig

The Hunt for :{;{ Cents
In one instance the record differed
from the amount of a voucher bv six
cents; another showed a loss of twenty
five cents and in two other cases the
difference was but one cent.
Other itemß which the auditors re
ferred to as "bungling" were record
charges of one amount while the vouch
er, issued under tiie same date and num
ber, exceeded tiiat amount bv $2.
These errors occurred principally in j
the books of the Department of the
Poor, so an auditor said. While a for
mer clerk to the Poor Board, now dead,
was in office according to the auditor,
the record shows that the vouchers
were not entered either in chronological
or numerical order. In two instances I
vouchers—the largest one calling for
$52.75 —were not entered in the rec
This so-called "slipup," according to
an auditor, not only showed that the
amount of cash in the 'outstanding war
rant fund" differed from that indi
cated by the official records, but caused
the auditors days of worry and work.
In at least four instances —the auditors
say there arc even more—the records
show that relief vouchers for $2 were
granted to individuals by the Directors
of the Poor in 1913 and that the vouch
ers bearing the corresponding numbers
indicated that $4 was allowed.
On the other hand, according to the
auditors, perrons received $2 relief or
ders and the record indicated they
received $4. These were said to be
errors ma le in transcribing.
No Evidence of Fraud
Errors iu recording the numbers and I
amounts of \ouchers also occurred I
while William A. Mcllhenuy was clerk
to the Poor Board, the auditors said.
Mr. Mcllhennj this morning explained
to the auditors that it was due to the
antique system which was in vogue in
1913. lie said the vouchers were
signed by the Boaed and some were
handed out before proper entry was
made in the official record. Notations
were made, he said, and errors were
made in the transcribing.
However, with all the errors, the
auditors' balances, they said, will not
show anything that would cause sits
picion of fraud. They added that, j
while some of the accounts do not ap- j
pear in the proper order, they have I
been discovered and the report should ■
ultimately correspond with the County |
Treasurer's figures.
The auditors now are working on the
dog tax reports, in which discrepancies;
ha\e been discovered.

vania being represented. Many promi
nent labor officials were on hand.
The Welfare Sectiou of the confer
ence held its session in the House cau
cus room this morning, the big room
being crowded to hear Dr. Samuel G.
Dixon. Commissioner of Health, make
an address on "Housing Condition."
This is a subject to which Dr. Dixon
has devoted a great deal of study.
Dr. Dixon said in part: "The term
' Housirg Conditions,' must have been
a broad definition. If our lalbors are to
be thorough we must follow the man,
woman and child throug'h the twenty
four hours of t'he day, where they sleep,
where they eat, where t'hey play, in the
school room, in the church, in the work
room and in tflie hospitals.
All Need Health Education
"I have found little wooden shacks
loosely constructed with plenty of knot,
holes and furnished with large sashes
that have been more sanitary than some
of the large houses. Our people in all
circles of life want to 'be educated in
health measures, lu the last few years
small houses have been muvli improved
in appearance, w'hich has us moral ef
fect, yet, these small dwellings are too
often heated with direct steam or hot
water plants. 'Phe old sharks w'hen kept
clean were often more healthful. Some
of the foreigners who come to this coun
try for a short time with the idea of
saving all they make so that they mav
return home with their little fortunes,
wiJl have to be deprived of the miser
able tenement house accommodations as
tilley are breeders of disease. In some
of' 'these places fhe mattresses never get
cold as one shift flollows close on the
heels of the other. Such housing wiil
have to 'be 'broken up and 'better homes
"In facing this broad ■problem, one
of our greatest aids is education. Peo
ple must ibe taught to use the homes
Which they have to tlhe best possible ad
vautage and they must in turn 'become
missionaries to teach others.
"TJiis is a great work and the efforts
of the State must not be too paternad.
It will not do to say that the people
must build a certain type of house. We
can. however, say that certain things
must be avoided Which would injure the
health of the individual in the com
munity. Individuals, municipalities and
nations must be their 'Brothers' keep
ers.' It is a mistake to discourage
initiative. Permit everyone to 'build
with only the limitation of that which
will directly or indirectly reflect upon
some one efse.
Housing Problems of the Poor
"Our tuberculosis nurses working in
every community in t'he State have be
come familiar with the housing prob
lems and needs of the poor people. The
work of our health officers in tile rural
districts and boroughs lead them to
those places where there is a need for
improvement. Our school inipe tors
have under their supervision t'he struc
tures in which our chidren spend so
large :i portion of their time.
"The work of the Housing Bureau
has dovetailed in with the other work
which is 'being done 'by our little army
of workers throughout the State. Un
der t'his growing system it offers an
economical and effective method of
handling t'he work with practically the
same overhead 'charges and saves du
plication of machinery and the over
lapping of responsibilities."
