STATE IS SPENDING LESS
Disbursement in Present Fiscal Year
8«,;M9,510 Below Those of 1913
The Auditor General to-day reported
receipts for the year totaling $29,633,-
727.27. For the year 1913, to the
same period, the receipts were $32.-
243.229.91; but last year's figure in
eluded receipts of State personal prop I
ertv tax. The fiscal year is nearly!
enough completed to show that the reve- j
nues for the year ending November,
30, 1914, will exceed $30,000,000.
The receipts from personal property i
tax last year were $5,312,175.11. This'
will show a slight increase of revenue
from sources other thau State personal)
The total payments for the year j
1914 to date have been $30,143, -j
534.53, while for the same period of 1
last year they were $36,483,044.97;'
the pavtnents thus having decreased $6,-
In commenting upon the showing the
Auditor General said that, by extraor
dinary effort in the collection of re
ceipts and by paring payments as much j
as possible, the State had been able to!
get through a very hard year without 1
working any great hardship or showing
an actual deficit at any time, although
payments in a number of instances have J
been delayed beyond dates at which
they bp.-; been made in former vears. !
receipts at the State Treasury,
for the closing day of the week were
$732,451.97. Of that amount the Unit- i
ed Gas Improvement Company paid in \
$348,000 and the Pennsylvania Kail-i
road Company $223,029.96. Other big!
corporations made up the balance. The
fiscal year will end on November 30.

LOAD; OF PENNIES PUT IN
PANS AS j:KE ON STOI'GH
Members of Tabernacle Chorus Donate
7,008 of the Total 8,.126 Coppers
Received in Last Night's Collection
At Instigation of Spooner
There lias been an average of about
3,000 pennies in the collections lifted
at the Stough tabernacle each night,
since the opening of the campaign.
Last night was the record night. There
was a total of 9,526 pennies in the
collection, which in a straight column
would measure just 35 feet.
The reason is not that more persons
are giving pennies, but that persons
are giving more pennies, and it was
sort of a put up job, too. The audience
gave only 2,518 of the pennies, which
is a normal amount at present. The
choir gave the other 7,008 "Indians."
The guilty ones blame Musical Direc
tor Spoover, who, it is alleged, put
them up to it as a little joke on Dr.
The pans go around in the choir be
fore the collection is lifted in the audi
ence. When the offering was taken in
the choir loft last night there was con
siderable giggling and whispering.
Prof. Spooner knew what it was all
ai>out, but he didn't let on. Some of
the young men and young women in
the chorus put into the pans rolls of
twenty-five pennies fresh from the
bank, while others lionatad coppers

to gather together, Jiy having nickels

Bags to Receive Donations All Dis
tributed and the Collection Will
Be Made Tuesday
Distributors of the several thousand
paper bags ia which will be placed the
annual donations of this city and vicin
ity for the Harrisburg Hospital, hav
ing completed their work, they feel as
sured that the gifts to this institution
will be more bountiful this year than
No better idea of the need for these
gifts can be gained than from a mere
cursory glance at the last annual re
port of the staff of the hospital. During
1913 there were 8,456 patients treat
ed. Of this number 5,320 were in the
dispensary and 2,258 in wards or rooms.
Of those who were admitted to the
dispensary 2,34 9 needed surgical treat-
and 1,430 of the other patients
required the services of a surgeon.
While some of the patients were able
to pay in full or in part for their treat
ment a very large number was unable
to meet any financial obligations and it
is for worthy similar cases that the col
lections at Thanksgiving time will be
made next week.
The baps have been sent not only
throughout Harrisburg but into the
surrounding country, in fact to all
towns ami communities from which pa
tients were sent to the hospital.
The collections will be made in Har
risburg next Tuesday while the towns
in this vicinity will b e visited Wed

In Court House circles, it is figured
that this case will have much bearing

along the river front.
Only recently the city decided to
take over the ' buildings and ground
comprising the " llardscrabble'' dis

city passed legislation by which it
hopes to gain possession of all land

Schlitzer lands, on the west side of
Front street, were condemned by tie
city and taken over for the opening

board of viewers decided that the
property owners had been damaged but
that the benefits to be derived by them

pay the assessments the three property
owners appealed and an issue was
framed resulting in tie trial this week.

More than seventy thousand ardent
followers of the game filled to the brim
this latest and greatest of athletic
arenas for the championship contest of
1914. It was a record crowd, bubbling
over with intercollegiate rivalry and
enthusiasm, as well as eagerness for
what was anticipated would prove tho
last word in football strategy.
Harvard was a slight favorite before
the struggle began, although the im
provement in the condition of the field
after Thursday's storm narrowed the
odds to nearly even*money.
The forenoon weather conditions
were entirely favorable for good foot
ball. The sky was clear and a light
northwest breeze was pufling down from
the Connecticut uills. It was snapping
cold and the ground in the bowl was
like asphalt early in the day.

the crowd to New Haven. The gather

far below the speed limit, while motor
vehicles, which dashed into the city toy
the hundreds were shunted off onto the
less crowded thoroughfares.
As curtain raisers, the Yale manage
ment provided for the morning an inter
collegiate cross-country championship
run, with fifteen college teams and a
Harvard and Yale soccor game. These
events were held outside the bowl.
How the Teams Lined Up

! THE SONGS OF
Selected By J. HOWARD WERT
No. 309. «<! Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now"
You have lovod lots of girls in the sweet long ago,
And each one has mennt heaven to yon;
ou have vowed your affection to each one in turn,
And have sworn to them nil you'd be true;
ou have kissed neath the moon, while the world seemed in tune,
Then you've left her to hunt a new game.
Does it ever occur to you later, my boy,
That she's probably doing the same?
I wonder who's kissing lier now, wonder who's teaching her how?
Wonder who's looking into her eyes, breathiug sighs, telling lies?
1 wonder who's buying the wine for lips that 1 used to call mine?
wonder If she ever tells him of me? 1 wonder who's kissing her now?
If you want to foel wretched and lonely and blue.
Just imagine the girl you love best
In the arms of some fellow who's stealing a kiss
From the lips that you once fondly pressed.
But the world moves apace, and the "loves of to-day
Flit away with a smile and a tear;
So you never can tell who is kissing her now.
Or just whom you'll be kissing next year.
"Dirge for a Soldier"
By George H. Boker
George Henry Boker (1823-1890), American poet, was born and died in
Philadelphia. Educated at Princeton, he studied law, but never practiced, lie
was made Minister to Turkey in 1871 and Minister to Russia from 1875 to
1879. He published several volumes of verse anil wrote the tragedies "Fran
cesca da Rimini," "Anne Bolevn" and "Leonore de Guzman." The following
lines were written in memory of General Philip Kearney ( 1815-1862), who was
killed at Chantilly, Va., September 1, 1862.
Close his eyes; his work is done! Fold him in his country's stars,
What to him is friend or foeinan, Roll the drum and tire the volley!
Rise of moon, or set of sun, What to him are all our wars,
Hand of man, or kiss of woman? What but death-bemocking folly?
Lay him low, lay him low. Lay him low, lay him low,
Tn the clover or the snow; In the clover or the snow!
What cares he? he cannot know; What cares he? he cannot know;
Lay hiin low! Lay him low!
As a man may, he fought his fight, Leave him to Ood's watching eve,
Proved his truth by his endeavor; Trust him to the hand that made him;
Let him sleep in silent night, Mortal love weeps idly by.
Sleep forever and forever; God alone has power to aid him.
Lav him low, lay him low. Lay him low, lay him low.
In the clover or the snow! In the clover or the snow!
What cares he? ho cannot know; What cares he? ho cannot know;
Lay him low! Lay him low!
REBATES FOR COMMUTERS?
Service Commission Announces It May
Require "Excess Certificates"
Pending Rate Controversy
The State Public Service Commission
issued the following statement to-day
regarding the proposed increase in rail
road rates for commuters:
"The Public Service (Commission has
no power to suspend the proposed in
crease of passenger rates of the rail
road companies, but tine act creating
the Commission does provide that it
may require the companies to issue to
■their patrons a certificate or other evi
dence of payment made by them, in ex
cess of the prior established rate, of an
increase, of which rate notice shall be
given to the commission and the pub
The probability is that, the Commis
sion wili require the railroad compa
nies to furnish the evidence of in
crease, in order that in the event of
the increase being held by tho Commis
sion to be unreasonable or excessive,
each passenger may be in a position to
establish tho amount of reparation he
is justly entitled to under the repar
ation clause of the statute."
Several more protests from com
muters, objecting to the increase, were
MERCURY DROPS TO 24
Cold Wave Did Not Prove So Strong—
Dissipating faster than expected, the
cold wave clid not give Harrisburg sis
low temperature as forecasted, but it
sent the mercury to 24 degrees last
night, the night proving to be thu
coldest of the present season. A tem
perature one degree higher is expected
for to-night, and further rises arc fore
casted for this city to-morrow.
Last night 's temperature was enough
to fill the river with slush ice and
above the bridges in lower Harrisburg
ice formed to the distance of 200 feet
from the shore. The fact that the
velocity of t.He stream is lessened »u
account of the municipal dam. across
the river at Iron alley is given as a
reason for the forming of so much ice.
The cold wave was central off the
gulf coast this morning, the upper
eastern half of the country being in
the grip of a storm. The frosts in the
south were generally killing. Sunday
will be a nice day' with rising tem

LAW OF 201 YEARS AGO USED
Ancient Ruling Is AppUed to Case in

An old English law enacted in 1713
exactly 201 years ago, played an im

session, which closed this afternoon. It

years ago provides that in slander suits,
only when the amount of the verdict
exceeds 40 Shillings, shall tho costs be

Since the verdict in the Pajrich suit
was but 6 cents, or less than 40 shil
