Parks and Playgrounds Committee
—Beidel in Charge of Health
That the local Municipal League ex
perts to be? a big factor in local public
improvements this year is evident from
the nature of the men who will compose
the various committees through which
the work of the league is carried on.
These committees consist of municipal
affairs, industrial, street improvement,
parks and playgrounds, sanitation and
health, beauty and attraction and mem
The names and membership of the e
committees, to serve in laii, were
made public this morning by H. C.
Wright, president of the league, and a
careful analysis of the constituent parts
of the various committees reveals some
odd combinations, as for instance, the
beauty and health committee will have
tor its chairman a popular barber in
Charles K. Beidel. A financier will head
the municipal affairs committee in Ed
il. Mengle, who holds the responsible
position of cashier for the Pennsylva
nia Steel Company. John B. Malehorn
will likely paint the industrial commit
tee red. or some other color, because he,
a painter, is chairman of that commit
tee. L. B. Xye, assistant principal of
the local High school, will see that his
committee, street improvement, will up
hold its former reputation.
Activity of the parks and play
grounds committee is assured by the se
lection of Charles S. Davis, principal of
the High school, as chairman, who will
be assisted in that body by J. V. W.
iieynders, Robert M. Rutherford and
other prominent members.

IRWIN COBB SAYS WAR IS
OPPOSITE OF GLORIOUS
Tails Large Audience of Misery and
Suffering on European Battle Fields
—Urges Harrisburgers to Aid Home
and War Belief Committee
Summing up his recent experiences
j iu the war zone iu his lectunyst the
Chestnut street auditorium last night,
Irvin S. Cobb. war correspondent ami
rhumorist, asserted that he has been dis
possessed of all illusions he formerly
had that war was noble and grand all • I
glorious. He told instances of awful
' suffering and misery caused by the pres
ent war, and especially emphasized the
I plight of the Belgians.
Drawing a wof.l picture of how can
' noil are fired bv men who cannot see
their enemy and who a.:t on orders
coming by telephone, he pointed out
how mechanically everything is done.
He quotedNa commander of a German
battery who said that since the out
break of the war he had not seen a sin
gle Englishman, Frenchman or Belgian,
and that he did not expect ever to see
the men he was trying to kill.
U. S. Diplomats Praised
The lecturer had words of the high
est , raise t'or American diplomats iu
belligerent countries, who, he said, are
nobly standing by their posts. He said
that although most of the other for
' eiiin diplomats left Brussels during the
"ighting there, the American represent-
I ative "stayed out" and did much to
| relieve suffering.
In answer to a question from the
j audience, .Mr. Cobb averted that his
interview with lxir.l Kitchener was gen -
j uine, saying that while the interview
was o curring he knew who Kltch
! ener was, and Lord Kitchener knew
who he was. He said that prospects for
; universal peace were not promising.
Called upon to explain the difference
between German preparedness and pos
sible prepare ine < in this country, aft
er ho had declared that the United
I Urates should increase its army and
i navv to preserve its peace, he answered
that there is a difference between Ger
| many "s preparedness for war, and this
country's possible preparedness against
Appeal for Home aud War Relief
In closing, Mr. Cobb made un ap
! peal for the people of Harrisburg to

large and representative audience to

Late yesterday afternoon and in the
early evening 20,000 additional Car
ranza troops consisting of three branch
es of arms entered the capital and
marched to the quarters selected for
them by General Obregon. The Zapa
tista troops retreated to the southward.
General \ enustiano Carranza, the first
. chief of the constitutionalists, will, ac
i cording to v era Cruz advices, return
to the eapiuil immediately and it is
probable that he will re-establish his
i government there iu the near future.
Second Time for Carranza Kegirue
This s the second time that Geu
i eral Carranza has been in power in the
j Mexican capital. He first entered the
i place on August 20 last, following the
retirement of General Vietoriano
Huerta, having the entire constitution
j alist force as his support.
For a time pea * reigned and then
an old dispute be A een Carranztf and
General Fran.'isco v'illa was revived.
I Officially it was said the difficulty arose
; from questions of policy but the Car
ranza followers laid it to the alleged
ambition of Villa to assume the reigns
! of government.
General Villa issued an ultimatum
j that Carranza must retire anil a con
] vention of all the revolutionary chiefs
j was called to meet at Aguas Calientes
' on October 10 to decide upou the best
j way in tho establishment of a govern-
I inent. The majority sentiment favored
| Villa and Carranza was asked to resign
: but he refused to give up control of
i the government.
Early in November the convention
I proclaimed General Eulalio Gutierrez
provisional president of the republic
and \ ilia took steps to install him in
j office. Villa begnn a march on the eap-
I ital, hut before he reached there, Car-
I ranza, seeing he was outnumbered, left
| Mexico City, taking iiis forces toward
j Vera Cruz, which he occupied when the
! Americans evacuated the place on No
•Since then Gutierrez himself has tied
owing, it is said, to fear of Villa. Ho
was succeeded bv Koipif (ionzales Garza,
who left the capital January 2" on the
approach of General Obregon and the
Carranza forces, General Villa having
previously marehed to the north with
Villa Planning New Repubic?
General Villa's reasons for abandon
ing the capital are not definitely known.
In some quarters it was said" that he
was not desirous of being cooped up
:n the capital by General Obregon's
troops, who had assumed a formidable
strength, while other reports had it that
Villa was plauniug a new republic with
its seat of government in the north.

LUCK IN A BLUNDER
A Story of Frederick the Great and a
During the last evening of my stay
at FrieuTichsruhe Bismarck was at his
| best. He was in excellent spirits,
i After dinner we lit pipes, and well fill
ed tankards of beer were handy. The
prince seated himself in his long artn
! chair, put his feet upon a leg rest, and
j evidently he was settled down for a
j good talk.
He asked me what I should like him
jto relate. I said. "Pray, sir, teil me
i any story that comes into your head.''
! Puffing vigorously at his pipe, the fol-
S lowing story was slowly developed:
"My grandfather served for three
i years under Frederick the Great and
' told me this anecdote: An ensign made
a blunder dufing the maneuvers of
troops at a review. The king, as was
his wont when annoyed', fell into a vio
-1 lent rage and pursued the terrified en
j sign, stick in hand. The young soldier
j ran for very life and jumped a ditch,
j leaving the king upon the other side
; shaking his stick at him in a fury.
"Shortly after the escape of the en
sign the colonel of the regiment came
up to the king and said, 'Your majesty,'
the young man committed a blunder
doubtless. I have just received his res
ignation from your majesty's service,'
placing the document into the king's
hands. ' I am sorry for it, for he was a
good officer, but he can take no other
step under the circumstances.'
'•The king answered, 'Send him to
me.' The ensign was sent for and
came, trembling, lest this time the
stripes should in reality fall upon his
shoulders or, still worse, he might"" be
sent to prison. Without any preface
the king replied, 'Here is your captain
cy, sir, which I endeavored to give you
this morning, but you ran away so
swiftly that niv old legs coulJ not
catch you up.' " —Sir W-. B. Richmond

"The bonus experiment was tried!

ing to build up a force of regular and

to pay $11,374.14 to constables as
back fees due for services rendered be
tween 1901 and 1905, and that to
gether with the fact that the county
may not be reimbursed by the State un
til the fiscal year 1916 for the cost of
holding the next fall primaries—some
thing like $0,350- —makes it imiK>s«ible,
the officials say, to reduce the millage.
The State always has reimbursed the
counties for the cost at' holding pri
mary elections, although payment, as a
rule, is not made until several months
after the election, and the Dauphin
Commissioners consider it inadvisable
to count on getting money for the Sep
tember. 1915, primaries, before the
close of the present, fiscal year.
In calculating tho expenditures for
1915 the Controller has made some
allowance for the growing business of
the county, and, guided by the advice
of the Commissioners, has made reduc- j
tions in other accounts, bast year more
than $24,000 was expended for erect
ing and rebuilding bridges, while this
year less than $17,000 will be spent
for that purpose. A slight cut also has!
been made iu the appropriation for road j
building. However, increases are allow- I
ed for the maintenance of criminals in j
penal institutions and also for the care j
of insane in the State hospitals.

For centuries an independent and powerful state, Poland, unfortunately,
fell a prey to internal dissensions and the disgraceful plottings of rival factions.
The occasion was seized by Russia. Austria and Prussia to divide its territory

Freedom calls you! Quick, be ready,— 'By the souls of patriots gone.
House ye in the name of God, — i Wake, —arise,—your fetters break,
Onward, onward, strong and steady,— Kosciusko bids you on,—

Onward, onward! Freedom cries, ! On, and let the watchword be, •
Rush to arms, —the tyrant flies. j Country, home, and liberty 1 J
