to me. Suddenly he jumped from his
cot, grabbed a piece of broom stick
said: 'l'll beat hell out of you.' "
The warden said the information he
lias about Smith principally is what he
was told by other prison attochos.
Thereupon Judge McCarrell sought to
know from John Fox Weiss, of Smith's
counsel, why witnesses who are better
informed as to Smith's alleged pecu
liarities "are not being called firstt"
"We believe in putting the worst
foot forward first," replied Mr. WeißS.
'' Evidently, t'hen, you do not be
lieve in "The worst is yet to come,' "
added the court.
Tells of Smith's Actions in Jail
A witness who said he did nine
months in prison and as a "runner"
looked after Smith's wants, declared
he had trouble "getting Smith to take'
a bath;" that Smith would not use
cutlery at meal time, preferring to
reach into his soup with his fingers;
that he sat in one position upon the
bunk for hours at a time; that he
would not hold a conversation; took
nothing from the runners unless he
could re-ach it without getting off his
bod and that frequently he stood in
a corner with his face to the wall as
if playing "hide and seek."
Later the witness said: "I frequent
ly asked him what he was in for, and
'he always replied 'for shooting old
(man Bush.' Then I would ask him
whether he did shoot the old man and
his reply would be 'that's for them
to find out.' Once I succeeded in get
ting Smith to the bathroom. He did
not want to leave," the runner added.
"If he started washing his ami he
would keep that up until I told him
to stop or until I would pull his arm
away," ho continued. "The only way
we could attract his attention to any
particular thing or object was to yell
at him just as vo<u would to a dog."

cessful clothing business at 14 North
Third street, and his brother, Ben.
Strouse. The new firm started in a
modest way at 322-324 Market street,
where it has successfully continued
since that time, growing larger year
after year.
As the business increased the store
was enlarged from time to time until
the entire building, four stories high,
extending from Market street to Straw
berry street, was occupied.
On Christmas eve in 1911 the entire
building and contents were destroyed
by fire. With characteristic enterprise
the Messrs. Strouse proceeded at once
to rebuild and in a remarkably short
time a new and much finer building
and a larger and better store took the
place of those destroyed bv the flames.
While tho enterprising members of the
firm were building up a big business
they were just as successful in winning
the confidence and respect of the public.
Both have taken an active part in mat
ters for the betterment of the city.
They have a wide circle of personal
friends and are popular in business and
social circles.
Mr. Ben. Strouse, who is now the
owner and proprietor, is one of the
city's enterprising business men. He is
a member of a number of fraternal and
social organizations among which are
the Chamber of Commerce; Harrisburg
Lodge, No. 629, I\ & A. M.; Harris
burg Consistory; Zembo Temple, A. A.
O. N. M. S.; Perseverance Chapter No.
21, Koyal Arch Mason; Harrisburg
Council, No. 7, B. & 8. M.; Harrisburg
Ixnlge, No. 12, B. P. O. E.; Harrisburg
Camp, No. 5250, M. W. A.; Harrisburg
Council, No. 4 99, Boyal Arcanum, and
Harrisburg Motor Club.
The change in the firm will in no
way affect any of the employes, many
of whom have been connected with the
"Globe" for many years, an<l all of
whom have excellent records. The only
changes contemplated are such as will
improve the store service and benefit
the buying public.
Mr. Ben. Strouse stated this morn
ing that a number of improvements will
be made to the interior of the store and
that he will spare neither pains nor ex
pense in his aim to make the "Globe"
larger and more popular than ever.

So States Melbourne Paper in Referring
to Views Recently Expressed by
Former President Taft
Melbourne, Australia, Dec. 1, Via
London, 1.30 P. M.—The Melbourne

statement that the United States would
not be compelled by the terms of the
doctrine to intervene if Canada should
be attacked by Germany, baa this to
'' If this interpretation represents
the views of the government of the
United States, an event of first rate
importance to the entire civilized world
has taken place. If the Wilson govern
ment shares Mr. Taft's opinion, it is
very clear that Monroeism is a thing
of the past and that the United States
has abdicated the position she has been
jealously guarding for a period extend
ing upwards of 80 years."
In his address at Montclaiir, N. J.,
last Friday nighit, Ex-President Taft
said that while the landing of troops
in Canada by eneanics of Great Britain
would not constitute a violation of the
Monroe Doctrine, any effect to estab

of victory would violate Jftiat policy.
Mr. Taft said: V
"All that the Monroe ~"i)octrine|
would consistently require of lis woul-j
be to insist that when the war is AyeM
if Germany were successful, she
not take over the territory of Canada
and overthrow her government and es
tablish her own there, or take any op
pressive measures whidh would have a
similar effect. But we would not ob
ject to her exacting an indemnity jf
she were the victor."
