Personal Tribute Paid to Mr. Tener by
Business and Professional Men and
State, County and City Officials, at
A personal tribute was paid to Gov
ernor John Kinley Tener on Saturday
night in the Harrisburg Club when more
than one hundred citizens #f Harrisburg
and vicinity made him the guest of
honor at a dinner given as an evidence
of their admiration aud esteem at the
close of his four years residence in Har
risburg in an official capacity. During
that time Governor Tener, who retires
from office January 19, has been a citi
zen, a neighbor and one who has en
tered into matters concerning municipal
welfare of Harrisburg.
Joining in honoring the retiring Gov
ernor were state, county and city of
ficials, professional, political and mer
cantile leaders, manufacturers, railroad
men, newspapermen and men represent
ing almost every branch of life in the
municipality, it was a most delight
tid occasion, and the auest of honor was
overwhelmed at the evidence of good
will from the people with whom he lias
dwelt for the last four years.
In the large dining room the dec
orator nia le his most artistic endeavor,
the big interior being a mass of Amer
ican Beauty roses, \labama smiiax.
: -aiiiis and American flags, all of which
lent themselves admirably to the de--
ornC.t scheme. At the head of the
taule was a great vase of American
Bcaitv roses which were sen* to Mrs.

Song to "Tipperary" Tune
Little formality was indulged in at
the opening. The committee had pro
vided a song sheet and at the very out
set the "Tipperary" song was chant
ed with a fervor that was inspiriting,
only the "Tiperary" words were
•■hanged so that the chorus was sang
"Here is to you. Johnnie Tener—
And it's to you we sing.
Head and shoulders you stand above us
Aud you're every inch a King;
You must come back. Johnnie Tener,
We unite in that refrain.
There s a warm, warm hope in every
You'll be Governor again."
During the evening, when the speech

the retiring official.

dwelling on the kindnesa and courtesv

NOTE COUCHED IN
But Long Diplomatic Correspondence
Conceding Principles of American
Case Will Not Meet Complaints of
Exports and Shippers
H}i Associated Prrss t
Washington, Jan. 11. —The United
States government, it became known to
day, is not altogether satisfied with the
note of Sir Edward Grey giving Great
Britain's preliminary reply to Presi
dent Wilson's protest concerning the
treatment of American commerce by the
While gratified that «ieiat Britain
admits the justice of practically all the
principles of international law chef
in tile American note, officials reiterated
to day that the chief difficulty had
been England's neglect to make her
actual practice square witlu the pre
viously accepted rules of international
It is realized by officials here that
a long diplomatic correspondence con
ceding the principles of the American
case l>"t not actually carrying them into
practice will not meet the complaints of
American exporters and shippers and
although England's, supplementary an
swer is expecteu to give a more detail
ed s:atcmenl of her position, officials
plan to take up vigorously all individ
ual cases which may meanwhile arise.
Friendly Ton e of British Note
Officials ate keenly appreciative of
the friendly tone of the British note
and of the promises it makes for re
dress in case of unwarranted injury to
American commerce. They point out,
however, that the note in its citation of
statistics had not taken up one of the
J chief points of the American argu
i men t.
The Hi itisii statistics wore brought
| forward !o argue that American com
merce with neutral countries had not
suftered as seriously as had been repre
sentei, but administration officials here
1 contend that one of the chief purposes
! of the American protest was to prevent
I depletion ot American commerce bv
continuation of British practices. The
American note, they said, was framed
| with the very idea of forestalling de
; striiction of American trade.
Figures Cited Misleading
Figures cited in the British note, in
the view of officials here, are mislead
: injr because much of the non-contraband
j goods which ordinarily go direct to Ger
! many and Austria lias really been
j shipped to neutral countries because of
| the scarcity of ships that would dare
j risk passage through mine tiekls of Ger
j man ports.
Similarly, the desire of Germany all < 1
I Austria to us all surplus production has
| deprived contiguous countries of many
| raw materials, which they now are colli
pellcd to import from the United
States. Such increases in total exports
from the United States, officials here
say, would conceal the real injury to
| some American industries because of
their apparent growth in trade with
j individual countries. •
Detaining of Many American Ships
England's statement that out of 773
| ships which proceeded from the United
I States to neutral countries in Europe
| since the outbreak of the war. only 45
j had had cargoes placed in the prize
j courts, while only 8 of the ships them
j selves had gotten into the courts was
| regarded by officials and diplomats here
j as proving that the bulk of American
' i ommerce was of legitimate character
j and had yielded only 45 doubtful cases,
i There is no mention made in the British
j note, on the other hand, of the large
I number of American ships which were
| detained, some of them for two weeks.
: tor extended examination.
In the next communication which the
I United States will send to England as
I a rejoinder the British view that ship?
must be taken into ports for examina
j tion instead of being searched 011 the
I high seas is expected to be vigorously
] disputed. There is some doubt, not in
! frequently expressed here among offl
-1 cials, of whether the practice of the
British fleet practically blockading the
I high seas instead of Herman ports them
! selves is not contrary to the funda
! mental principles of the law.
Inspection of Cargoes
i It is not unlikely that when the
American reply is finally seut, the State
Department will give out statistics
showing when anil where American
] ships have been detained. It is admit
ted at thp State Department that the
action of some American exporters and
ship masters has place'.! the British in
1 possession of a strong argument in fa
! vor of its present position. But with
I the recent arrangements for having out
| going cargoes loaded under the inspec
tion of treasury officials and with the
1 system of licenses which the British
note states has been arranged to insare
rubber and perhaps wool exported from
! America from reaching Germany and
Austria, officials are inclined to be
lieve that the way soon will be open
for a complete satisfactory understand
ing between the two governments in
regard to the treatment of neutral ship
ping, and they are encourage'l in that
belief by the frank and responsive tone
1 of the British note.
Great Britain's Reply
Washington, .lan. 11.—Great Bri
tain's reply to President Wilson's pro
tect against interference with Ameri
-1 can shipping was given out by the
iState Department last night. The main
contentions of Kngland are as fo'lows:
'"The British Government concur in
1 the prin<\ }le enunciated by the United
. States that a belligerent should not in
terfere in trade between neutrals un
| less necessary to protect the belliger-
I eni's safety."
i "Much misconception exists as to
j the extent to which we have interfered
with trade. The adverse effect upon
certain industries is due to diminished
j purchasing |*>wer of France, Germany
land the United Kingdom."
The heavy increase in copper ship

To End Dandruff
There is one sure way that never
fails to remove dnmlrutY completely and
that is to dissolve it. This destroys it
entirely. To do this, just get about
four ounces of plain, ordinary liquid
arvon; apply it at night when retiring;
use enough to moisten the scalp and rub
it in gently with the finger tips.
By morning most, if not all, of your
dandruff will be gone, and three or fout
more applications will completely dis
solve and entirely destroy, every single
sign and trace of it, no matter ho#
much dandruff you may have.
You will find, too, that all itching
and digging of the sculp will stop in
stantly, and your hair will be Huffy,
lustrous, glossy, silky and soft, and
look and feel a hundred times better.
You can get. liquid arvon at any drug
store. It is inexpensive, and four
ounces is all you will need. This simple
remedy has never been known to fail.

England's Debt of Gratitude
London. Jan. 11, 11'.57 P. M.—The
i London afternoon papers commenting
i on the reply of Foreign Secretary Grey
to the American note concerning un
warranted interference with America s
shipping, are unanimous in calling at
tention to Great Britain's debt of grat
titude to the United States and her re
sire to repay it iby interfering with
American trade as little as is necessary
I to secure the safety of this country and
| >her allies.
Tiiie papers take the ground that the
I Foreign Secretary's facts and figures,
unless they can 'be explained or re
butted. prove that enormous supplies
I necessary to the prosecution of the
I war have reached the enemy under cov-
I er of neutral trade. The "Westminster
| Gazette '' says:
"A belligerent is guarding his ov\n
j iuterests. No obligation rests upon a
i neutral to help a belligerent or to pre
i vent the embarkation of contraband.
1 We do not wish to throw the slightest
! responsibility on the United States but
; in dealing with a friendly neutral we
: can in a variety of ways consult his
1 convenience and the people of the I'uii
; ed States may be assured that we wid
I do Whatever possible to mitigate the
state of war to tlicm. ( loser co opera-
I riou between t»he two governments will
i have good results.''
What Every Briton Will Approve
! The "Pall Mail Gazette" says:
■'Foreign Secretary Grey's reply was
I just what every Briton will approve
: who warmly desires the friendship of
j iho United States, but who also is de
j torinined that no legitimate weapon
shall be sheatned which can 'be used
; to bring the war to a speedy anil sue
j cessful conclusion."
The "Globe" expresses the opinion
j rhat Sir Edward Grey's "frank and
I friendly reply goes- in some directions
! even further toward meeting the wishes
j of file United States than some of us
| think. ' The "Globe" suggests that
I the principal trouble over the question
of contraband has arisen through the
change in the American practice and
j the present prohibition of t'he publ>ca
j tion of manifests until thirty •'
( after the vessels have left Amen an
| ports. In this connection the paper
"If the consequent detention is In
convenient anil injurious to American
trade tlhe \ merit an government has t.ia

American Shippers Discuss Beply
London, Jan. 11, 2.12 P. M. The
opinion prevails among American ship
| ping agents in London that Washing
ton will answer the British preliminary
reply to the American shipping note,
because of what they term its cxparte
nature. While Great Britain ma le it
: clearer that no reply was expected tin-
I til she had given her own final answer
which probably will be within a fort
night. American shippers believe there
arc certain phases of the preliminary
i note which require explanation.
"The failure of the British reply to
j explain that copper and other Ameri
can exports to neutral countries prob
ably were forwarded in large quanti
ties to Kussia is looked upon as an im
portant omission. Another point dwelt
upon bv shipping agents is the fart
■ that Great Britain has not taken into
the account the cutting off of the Gcr
| man exports to neutral countries, whi.'h
of necessity must buy from the United
; States goods which cannot b P had from
, Germany or England.
Considerable comment has been
aroused by the fact that both the Amer
ican note an I the British response
touched upon the chief grievance of
I shippers—the great delay in determin
i ing whether cargoes detained are con
traband. Agents of American Arms
whioh have suffered from this condition
| feel that the actual statements of the
i annoyances and delays which shippers
have endured would hasten an aldju't
: ment of differences more effectively
than general statements without de
tails of specific cases.
