Mitchell Palmer last night assailed Sen
ator Penrose for instigating the Catlln
piobe to.investlguto the city of Phila
delphia, hnd then abruptly shutting oK
the work of the Commission when It
recmed about to e::poso tho Inner work
ing of tho Penrose organization,
Mr. Palmer challenged Senator Penioso
to tell tho people of Pennsylvania Just
why tho Commission had suddenly con
cluded Its work. The election of Rudolph
Blankenbtng as Mayor of Philadelphia,
Mr. Palmer attributed directly to the
unexpected revelations made to the peo
ple of that city by tho Commission be
fore It dropped out of c::l3tcnce.
Tho charge that he would just as leave
sacrifice a lriend as a foe if ftc sacrifice
would accomplish tho ends of his political
knavery was hurled at Senator Penrose.
Referring to the Indictment which he has
made against the Senator, Mr. Palmer
"As I have remarked before. Pentose
talks much about what he lias done for
Pennsylvania, and 1 tell you that you
should stop and think what ho has dono
ti Pennsylvania. I have not made one
statement about Penrose anywhere which
ic not absolutely verified by his record.
Whenever I have cited Instances of his
votos In the Senate I have given the date
md tbo page of thu Congressional Record
on which It may be lound, so thnt any
one may turn to that record himself and
read Penroso's shame "
One of the stops mode by the cam
paigners, prior to reaching Lock Haven,
was at tho State Giango encampment
and fair at Centre Hall. Hero Mr. Palmer
had an opportunity to see the largest
crowd he has mot since ho began his
tour 10 days ago. Fully MM persons were
on the full- grounds, although the number
v hlch wan able to crowd Into Grange
Hall, where the addresses wore made,
was comparatively small.
The candidates spoke In practically all
the towns In Mifflin, Centie and Clinton
Countlen dining tho course of the day.
The automobile tour will be resumed to

City Solicitor Advises Com

Appointments Until He
las Examined Law.
WILMINGTON, Del.. Sept. lT.Koliilng
further will be dono toward qdatlfylng
tho policemen who were appointed on
Tuesday until City Council has coiibM-
Lered the subject this evening and de
cided what Is to be done. The point has
been raised that the resolution adopted
by City Council was Illegal. The law
provides that tho police force shall bo
enlarged from time to time upon the
recommendation of Council, but Councils'
resolution authoilzed Hie Pollco Commis
sion to incicase the forco instead of
lecommending It. The point wus pushed
with such vigor that City Solicitor Daniel
O, Hastings advised the Pollco Commis
sion not to proceed further In the mat
ter until lie could look Into tho law and
go over the matter with the Pollco Com
mission. If Council Bhoiild decide that the reso
lution was Illegally passed und lesclnd
it, the Pollco Commission probably will
drop the mntter and allow the blame for
failure to Increase the police forco to rest
on tho members of Council. Should tho
City Solicitor decide the resolution legal,
the chancos aro that the Police Commis
sion will stand by Its appointments.
The whole subject has stirred up bitter
feeling among the friends of the two
Pollco Commissioners Rid Chief of Po
lice Black on ono .side and tho friends
of tho members of City Council on the
other. Members of Council assert they
nre endeavoring to back General I. Pitssey
Wlckershnm, one of tho members of tho
commission. In his efforts to Improve the
Pollto Depattnlent, wlillo the other side
declares that the Interference of City
Council Is duo to a desire on the part
of some of the members to get even with
tho Chief of Police nnd prevent him hav
ing any choice In the selection of men
for the mounted squad winch Is to be
formed. The assertion Is made that the
Idea of having nn expert to examine the
police force and suggest changes and Im
provements was to get Chief Black out
of ofllce, nnd that after John tt. Taylor,
the Philadelphia expert, had declared that
Black was a good oliicer, but wits
liampcicd, his opponents proceeded to
get after him In some other way.

to meet the voters personally. The main

Mr. Brumbaush attempted no defense
of Penrose or Penrosselsm, but confined
himself to what he, asserted were the

peated his stand on local option, and
said that If he were elected and such a
bill came before hlul it would have his
