PLANNED FOR INALGJRAL
Platform Will Be In Same Position aa
That for the Tener Ceremonies—
Little Actual Work Will Be Left
for Committee of Legislature To-day
Preliminary preparations for the
inauguration of Martin G. Brumbaugh
as Governor on January 21 are being
looked after by those interested on
Capitol Hill, and when the Inaugural
Committee is appointed by the Senate
and House on January 5 it is likely
that the committee will have little to
do outsido of sending out invitations
to distinguished persons to be present,
arranging the pa»9de and the order of
exercises, and looking after the com
fort of the incoming Governor. --
Superintendent Rambo to-day got
out his plan of the platform on which
the inaugural exercises will talce place.
It is the same plan on which the Tener
inaugural platform was constructed.
The platform will be at the entrance to
the capitol, extending out over the
plaza, and will have seats for the new
officials, state officials, members and of
ficers of the Senate and House and the
ladies of the official party. Press seats
will be provided as heretofore at the
front on either sjde of the stand whore
the oath of office is administered and
tho inaugural exercises take place.
When the Legislature meets on Jan
uary 5 the Senate and House, aifter or
ganizing, will pass a resolution provid
! ing for the creation of an inaugural
committee. It is always customary to
put the I>auphin Senator,-—in this case
Senator Beidleman,—on the committee
and include the members of the House
from Dauphin. One of the first duties
of the House will be to pass first a
bill providing for the payment of the
inaugural expenses. The Legislature of
1911 appropriat&d $15,000 to pay the
expenses of the inauguration.
In the Senate, directly after the
inauguration of Governor Brumbaugh,
the oath of office wil be administered
to Lieutenant Governor Frank B. Mc-
Clain, and then both legislative bodies
will be ready for the work of the ses
It is thought that both the civic and
military parade will be the finest inau

son Antonio and his wife and three
children are still critically ill from the

lieved the five who are ill will recover.

moved here with the family. It was
not until some time after the family
had ten and too late for ptomaine
poisoning to have shown its effects that
all were taken ill. Nicholas died in a
short time, but the others responded
to medical attention.

TREACHERY COSTS $380,933
Letter Wins Wheat Suit# of Those Who
Balked $12,000,000 Corner
Chicago,. Dec. 15.—Joseph Leiter
need not pay the $350,933 in notes

vator Companies to pay for grain dur
ing Letter's attempt to corner the
wheat mlarket in 1898, according to
the verdict, last night of the .jury
which 'heard the elevator companies
suit to recover.
Leiter's sole defense was that the
late Frank 11. Peavey and the late C.
A. Pillsbury, both of Minneapolis, rep
resenting the elevator companies, ha' 1
agreed with him to withhold their
wheat from the market. Their failure
to keep this adleged agreement prevent
ed Leiter from effecting the corner
and caused him a loss of about $12,-
000,000, according to the testimony.'
Federal Judge Humiphrey in iustruc
tiag the jury, said:
"If you Hud from the evidence that
there was an illegal conspiracy to ob
tain control of the wheat market, then
the notes are void."
Loiter testified he had paid all other
indebtedness following the wheht deal
in 189 S. His faitiher, Levi Z. Leiter,
sold Chicago real estate valued at
$10,000,000 to $15,000,000 after the
wheat failure, in order to keep the
son's record clear, he testified. Leiter
said he had held the Miuneaipolis men
responsible for his loss.
