Land Tax Measure Held Up
A bill extending a graded taxation
on lands to third class cities in Penn
sylvania was held up in the House Com
mittee" on Municipal Corporations yes
terday despite the efforts o. fourteen
third class cities, among them Harris- j
burg, to gt f it out. Instead the com- J
mittee reported a repealer for the pros- ]
ent law on the subject, which relates'
only to second class cities. The bill i
favored by the third class" cities would!
put the burden of taxation ou land and, j
its friends argue, would hasten building i
improvements.

i Enliaut's Firemen Save Dwellings
Which Repeatedly Get Ablaze
While Physician's Bam and Auto
; Are Destroyed
I
| (Special to the Star-Independent.)
Enhaut, Pa., March 2 4.—A new
i Ford touring ear, much valuable build
ing material and some farm crops were
destroyed by Humes which between 1
a,ml 2 o'clock thin morning swept
j away a building serving the double
j purpose ot' a barn and a garage. It wus
i the property of Dr. D. W. Schaffner,
I and situated along the main street in
I the southwest section of this town. It
is believed the blaze was the work of
firebugs.
Three dwellings in the path of the I
wind-driven sparks and embers several
times took fire, small holes being burn
ed in the roofs. These houses were i
saved from more serious diamage or j
j possible destruction through the efforts '
of the Enhaut fire company whose I
j members worked hard with their chem- j
j ical engine.
These houses are owned and ten- !
| anted by John Parthemore, Jacob
; Livingston and Lester Thompson, re- j
i spectively. Flames appeared on the I
; roof of the Parthemore house half a I
i dozen timet) but they quickly were sub- ,
J dued each time.
i Dr. Schaffner's loss is close to $2,- I
j 000. He hiis little or no insurance, i
| Neighbors of the physician discovered I
j the fire only after the entire barn was j
3
a mass of flames and when it was to<
late to remove the automobile or othe
valuables. Much lumber, includinj
doofs and window frames, had beei
stored in the barn preparatory to th<
erection of a new parage to shelte
I the physician's anto.
The barn, which since last summe
| also has served as a garage, was on thi
rear of a building lot on the west sid<
of the town's main thoroughfare am
directly opposite the physician's resi
dence. A metal roof prevented the fly
ing embers from damaging Dr. Scbaff
ner's home.
AiNGEUJS RECITAL A SUCCESS
Skillful Demonstration of Player-Plan
Given by P. Kenneth Van Yorx
That playing the player-piano mean
something more than merely treadin
I the treadles, and really requires a ski
and knowledge of music, was deraoi
strated by P. Kenneth Van Yorx, i
: his Angelas recital held in the aud
torium of Technical High school, las
evening.
The demonstration, arranged by ti
•L H. Troup Music House for i
friends, was remarkable and will t
| much to convince any mind, no matt<
how skeptical, that Angelas music
'personal music, and not ''canned" t
j such music is oftinies classed, as it wi
j almost impossible to distinguish whet
jer the man was actually playing tl
I keys or the levers.
Assisting Mr. Van Yorx was Geor<
I Sutton, baritone aud Hans Kronol
violinuellist, who \tfere accompanied
their numbers by the piano-player, wil
| much harmony and sympathy. The pr
: gram was made up of numbers by M<
delssohn, Giordani, Brueli, Grieg, Go
j nod, Liszt-Verdi, Wagner, Popper ai
original numbers by Mr. Kronold.
