Many Persons Attend and Traction
Company Cars Are Well Patronized
The cars of the Harrisburg Railways
Company were thronged last night aft
er midnight by the crowds of people
that poured lrom the churches alter
the watch night services. Services were
held in practically ail the churches of
the city aud were featured this year by
motion pictures, hours for social pur- !
peses and refreshment. I u many of the
churches the Stough evangelistic cam- I
paign song books were used. The serv
ices this year seemed more generally I
attended than in other year and every- '
where there seemed to' be a spirit of
hearty religious feeling.
The St. Cetyelia choir at mass this
morning in St. Patrick's cathedral ren- 1
dered the same musical program that;
was rendered Christmas morning. The
choir is composed of some fifty bovs I

Haberdasher Wants Pay From F. P.
Keene for 47 Pairs
New York. Jan. 1. —Foxhali P.
Kecne was sued in the Supreme Court
for $374 by Hatiborovvs, Ltd., of Lon
don, for haberdashery bought between ;
1909 and 1912 for which Mr. Keene 1
has refused to pay.
Among the articles listed in the com
plaint are forty-seven pairs of hose,
ranging from ,25 cents to $4 a pair:
two pairs of silk pajamas, $17.28:
three shirts, $18.61, and one scarlet
polo shirt, $ 1 2.77.
Photoplay To-day
Two good features are scheduled for
the Photoplay to-day. A humorous reel
showing the matrimonial and family
troubles of a wealthy widower and a
thrilling railroad story, "The Black
Diamond Express," are both sail J' to be
above the average of their kind.
There are many laughable incidents
in the widower's plight and his love
making together with those of his
pretty, young daughter give rise to
many ridiculous scenes. The man falls
in love with a fortune hunting woman
and she consent? to marry him only on
condition that Wis daughter marry her
son. He agrees without conferring with
the girl, who is already pledged to an
other youth. The trouble he has be
tween the girl 'a sweetheart an.t the
woman 'g son is the plot of the produc
tion. Ad\\ *
There must be something fishy in the
report that iehthyoi has gone up on ac
count of the war.
