Services in the Churches
Under a mantle ot snow the citv
will go to bed to-i.ight to rest for a
busy day to-morrow. First tiling in
the morning the children will wake up
to see a glittering outlay of presents
handy for before-breakfast examina

meal on Christmas Day and it will be
hurriedly eaten with some impatiehce
by t'hc boys and girls who want to
start a day with the playthings; by
mothers who must stuff the bird for the
Christinas dinner; by big brothers and

gifts to their friends, and by father,

Every possible arrangement for the
happiness of the city's unfortunates ha<

for many years, but through the chari

Associated Charities, all of the needy
cases have been taken .cate of 'bv be

no duplications and every one is to be
Church societies, the Salvation Army,
the American Rescue Workers and the
Harrisburg IjOdge of Elks, among oth
ers, have prepared generous gifts.
One Mail Delivery To-morrow
To day was one of the busiest of the
year in Harris-burg. Streets were
thronged with shoppers and not a few
persons purchased Christmas trees for
Santa Claus to decorate to night. Rail
road stations were crowded as folks
came home for the day. There was
many a hearty reception at the depot
for a son or daughter who has been
away sincr last Christmas. College
boys and girls, too, have come home in
great numbers. Kverybody hurried,
but it was a good-natured throng that
came and went.
The family reunions around grand
pa's table, with grandpa wielding the
carving knife, will play a large part in
the happiness of the morrow. The post
office and branches were as crowded to
day as the department stores and the
railway stations. Many persons were
sending Yuletide grtetings and belated
presents through the parcel post.
The custom of getting a post card to
a loved one in the first delivery Christ
mas morning, to get in early with a
"Merry Christmas," has increased in
late years until it now presents a seri
ous problem at the post office. The
7.13 a. m. delivery will be made from
the postoffice as usual to-morrow. It
will be the only delivery of the day.
The regular collections, however, will
take place during toe evening, starting
at 5.40 o'clock. The t postoffice and
sub-stations will be closed from 10
a. ui. until midnight.
The one business to run the same as
usual will be the amusements. All of
the moving picture shows will be run
ning on schedule. Thers will be two
vaudeville performances at the Or
pheum and a matinee and evening per
formance of "A Pair of Sixes" will be
given at the Majestic theatre.
CITY SCHOOLS DISPOSE OF
65,034 RED CROSS SEALS
While Harrisburg formally closed its
Red Cross Christmas seal campaign for
1911 to-day the Yuletide stamps can
be purchased on up until New Year's
Day according to announcement made'
this morning by John Fox Weiss, chair
man of the general committee.
The Christmas "stickers'' while in
tended primarily for use on Christmas
gifts bear a New Year's greeting as
well and they can easily be used for
post-Christmas gifts and letters. The
various lines along which Harris'.iurg's
campaign had been conducted, —chur< li
es, schools, fraternal organizations,
etc., —ofticially quit business. So did
the booths in the postollice and the de
partment stores. Plenty of seals are
available, however, for atter-Christnius
distribution. Just how many stamps
were sold this year cannot be deter
mined until the various sub-commit
tees make their reports. These ligarei
may not be compiled for a week.
The result of the sales in the city
schools was announced yesterday and
the expectations were more than real
ized. The school children of Harris
burg sold 65,03 4 seals, which means
$650.34, as compared with 51,820
last year. The Cameron building led
this year again in being the building
that sold the most seals, in containing
the room that disposed of the most
seals as a room, and in producing the
individual of the 11,000 odd school
children who sold the most.
At the Cameron building 4,809 seals
were sold. This is a few hundred 1 more
than Central High school which was
credited with 4,369. Technical High
sold very few as the students devoted
their funds and energies to entertain
ing the open-air school kids. Miss
Anna Weitmever's room, the high room
last year, led again with sales totaling
16,591, $165.91. To little Miss Wini
fred VVelconier belongs the honor as the
best Red Cross Christmas seal salesgirl
in Harrisburg. She sold 1,100. And
oddlv enough, last year, her sister,
Katnerine, while in the same room, led
all the other school children of the
Scoutmaster Edward Manser who
handled the ''Merchant Days'' series
of the campaign paid a graceful com
pliment to. the energetic youths who
helped make that end of the crusade a
success. "Without the Boy Scouts we
would have been in a very bad way,"
he said. "They practically made the af
fair a success. »
Seymour Nissley headed the list of
boy salesmen, while Fred Munsey was
a close second and George Hogentogler,
an active third. Paul Bair also got hon
orable mention and particular credit
was given to Jack Froehlich, Seymour
Nissley, George Shreiner, Jr.. and Reese
Lloyd as delivery boys. Following are
the Boy Scouts who participated:
Troop I—Paul Bair and Fred Mur

Edwin M. Abbott, au attorney, of

of Philadelphia, will have to wait until
Dr. Biuin'baugh is made Governor to
present again their charges against the
Public Service Commission that it vio

the first news of its decision in the pas
senger rate case and therefore ought to
be impeached. These charges were re
sented to Governor Tener, and the Gov

Governor Tener, aflar reading care
fully the charges against t)he Public
Service Commission, sent to him by Mr.
Abbott, said he had given each full con
sideration, and added that he had paid
special attention to the allegations of
"neglect of duty," and misconduct
in oliite," but he found nothing in the
charges worthy of consideration. The
Governor late yesterday issued the fol
"I have read the charges and pe
tition received to-day, and tiud nothing
vontained therein to convince mc that
the personnel of the Commission should
bei - hanged. The' Pennsylvania public
service law is admittedly the best in the
I'nite*! States. v and I have every con
fidence in those who have been appoint
ed by me to carry out its provisions
honestly anil fearlessly."
Mr. Abbott, in Philadelphia last
night, said that .just as soon as Dr.
Brumbaugh is inducted into office he
will file the samach arges against the
Commission, and should Governor Brum
baugh decline to take action an effort
will be made to prevent the confirma
