AS OUR "NATIONAL SIN"
John Gribbel Declares Country Faces
Danger of Paternal Government.
Bankers, brokers and business men areT
aiscussnifT today tho remarks of John
urlbbcl, who denounced extravagance as
our "national sin" In connection with the
Federal Reserve Bank System, In nn ad
dress before 300 members of the Philadel
phia Association of Cicdlt Men at the
Manufacturers' Club last night.
Mr. CJrlbbol, In his speech, mixed humor
anil advice and Urged all to Join In taking
an optimistic view of the future.
"Tnn Federal Beserve Bank System Is
,the greatest trust that over was
launched," Mr. arlbb! said. "It may
help to Improve conditions, nnd I have no
doubt that tho last 60 days have seen the
greatest breakdown of credit that this
World has ever known.
"We are running more and more Into
the danger of a paternal government.
You can legislate ns much as you like,
hut you cannot legislate character. Char
acter, I think, Is one of tho greatest
nsscta In securing credit. I have heard
many successful bankers say that they
would prefer to loan on paper rather than
on rollateral security, for the reason that
the moral obligation Is greater.
"J. Plerpont Morgan was the greatest
Judge nf credit that this nation has ever
seen. Treaties among nations may be con
sidered mere scraps of paper, but I am
thankful to say that commercial paper
Is not considered as such.
"Rxtravaganco Is our national sin. We
find It In every city even Philadelphia
In every town, borough, and I think In
overy household. We aro Just beginning
to loarn our lesson as a nation, nnd I cer
tainly think that tho tlmo Is soon coming

They were Miss Annie Wilson, who re

HOMEOPATH DEPLORES LACK
OF MEDICAL FRANKNESS
Dr. B. A. Patterson Says Physicians
Should Be More Confiding.
Dr. Robert A. Patterson, a member of
tho State Homeopathic Medical Society,
In an IntervJew today criticised phy
sicians for their failure to tako patients
Into their confidence when treating them,
and added that a large percentage of
deaths Is attributable to this cause.
This is especially true, ho said, In the
treatment of cancer. Doctors make the
fatal mistake of not letting the public
know through the various mediums at
their disposal what the first symptoms
of cancer are and Impressing on their
minds that In Its first stages cancer is
purely local. Is not contagious or Infec
tious, and Is amenable to treatmont If
the oaso Is taken In hand at the first In
stance of Its presence.
Premature announcements of so-called
new cures for tho malady, said Dr. Pat
terson, Is also a cause for the high mor
tality from cancer, as It raises the hopes
of those afflicted, only to be disappointed
In a short time when they find that the
new cures are a rauure,
"The X-ray and radium are cases In
point," he said. "Wonderful cures were
claimed for the former agent, but It
was later determined that It not only
did not cure the disease, but actually
"When radium made Its appearance In
the field as a curative power for cancer,
page after page appeared In the various
medical journals throughout the coun
try dwelling at great length on its ad
vantages, and those who were among
the first to praise and welcome it arc
now loud In Its denunciation as a worth
less medium of treatment, and It Is to
be regretted that this too hasty recom
mendation of newly discovered methods'
of treatment has led, among physicians
and laity, to a fatalistic tendency to
delay and a senseless running after
Several methods for bringing the phy
sician and the public Into closer rela
tionship with each other were recom
mended by Doctor Patterson. The most
effective of these, he said, was through
the columns of the dally newspapers.

the thousands of voter who believe in

reiterate his declaration that ho was "un

tangling alliances with any man."
"My nomination was given mo by the

or cllquo of men anywhere and get their
consent to my candidacy I should nover
have run for any office In Pennsylvania.
"I havo no alliances which will entangle
mie with nny man. 1 have made no
pledges except to the voters of the State.
And I have made no pledges to them

nominated mo. It will be the people of
Pennsylvania who will elect me. and my
services will be given to these people and

HOW MR. PALMER
REFUSED A CHANCE
JO BE PRESIDENT
Writer Tells of "Bosses" '
Offer at aBltimore to Give
P e n n s y 1 vanian Wilson's
Place on the Ticket.
An Interesting report, which has hfad
limited circulation since the Democratic
National Convention of 1912, Is repeated
In the guise of an apparently authoritative
statement published in this week's Issue
of Harper's Weekly.
In substance, the article tells of the
offer made to A. Mitchell Palmer of the
Democratic nomination for the Presidency
and of his firm lcfusal of the honor. The
"As everybody rcmembors, there were at
Baltimore two outstanding candidates,
Champ Clark and Woodrow Wilson;
though whether Champ Clark was to be
allowed to receive his votes on the flnat
ballot, is a bootless point to consider now.
There Is good reason to believe that the
private slato of the 'big bosses' had an
other name on It than that of the man
from Missouri with a dog.
"For 10 ballots Clark led, then when
h-8M..J.rJc n.d III,nols ""d-denly ncd up
behind the Missouri banner, Bryan flung
hlj bombshell. Wilson forged ahead In
he otlng, but tho deadlock could not
yet bo broken.
"Tho Wilson leader on tho floor of the
convention was a big-boned Quaker, Just
turned 40, who had In college spouted
about Idealism in politics, and, what Is
more unusual, had continued to speak
'""" lne samo text and work for tho
same objective after he had got Into the
mcleo of practical life. One of the people
of Penn, a birthright reformer, A. Mitchell
Palmer, had risen rapidly to power in
his own State.
LED WILSON CAUSE BRILLIANTLY.
"When It early became apparent, after
n. dozen ballots, that this young champion
of the Wilson cause, whoso voice could
bo heard to tho uttermost reaches of tho
armory's expanse, was really a leader and
a personality to be reckoned with, tho
'big fellows' began to try to dicker with
him. Clearly ho must be taken Into tho
camp, or else overwhelmed. Every news
paper In the land told day after day
how brilliantly Palmer led the Wilson
cause. He went to Baltimore an un
known man; ho left It n national figure.
"The first temptation came early in the
struggle It was a cold-blooded declara
tion from n. Clark leader, that if Palmer
would make, or permit, a break for Clark
In the Pennsylvania delegation, he him-,
self would be straightway nominated for'
the "vice Presidency. Perhaps It did not
take any great self-denial to repudiate
"The real crisis came later. Hour after
hour, day after day, night after night,
thi momentous struggle had waged. Tho
master politicians of the party confessed
themselves unable to find a solution for
"On the afternoon of June 30 thero
gathered In the rooms of Chairman Mack,
of the National Committee, in the Hotel
Belvedere, the floor lenders of all the
cnndldntcs, together with the big men of
the National Organization. 'Among those
present' were Murphy, MncK, justice
Cohnlan. of New York; Taggart. of
Indiana: OUIc James, of Kentucky; Stone
and Francis, of Missouri: Bankhead, of
Alabama: Sullivan, of Illinois; Burleson,
of Texas: Luke Lea. of Tennessee, sfnd
Edwin Wood, of Michigan.
BIG BOSSES' MAKE OFFER.
"For three or four hours the discus
sion raged, and 'compromise' nas the
dominant note. Edwin Wood, of Michi
gan, took the floor and openely proposed
to the conference tho name of A. Mitchell
Talmer as a man upon whom all could

mer was reserved until later. It was In
a smaller early morning conference. In
a private home on Mount Royal avenue.

ing. Tiiat message, significantly, was
telephoned from New York.
"At this hour of physical exhaustion
the 'big bofees' in a group laid down
the facts of the case to the young
Congressman from Pennsylvania, his as
sociate In the Wilson leadership. A. E.
Burleson, now Postmaster General, sit
ting by. After they l.ad given him certain
wise admonitions about being 'practical'
nnd 'reasonable.' they showed him that It
was Impossible for Wilson to win ut
terly, absolutely Impossible. Item by
Item they canvassed the situation to prove
that they were right beyond all per

"But he had tho only key that could
open the deadlock. His Pennsylvania
delegation was the kevstono of the sit

country at large were tired of this re
sultless struggle. Everybody was clamor
ing for a 'dark horse.' The convention
strife had grown too bitter for any of
the old Democratic leaders to win the
nomination. Some fit. forceful figure
must bo found who would appeal to the

proposition: 'You are the man.' Pa
tiently, subtly, the case was expounded:

be a real victory for the Wilson cause;

Mr. Palmer Invaded Northumberland
County yesterday where the liquor Inter
ests are strong and fired hot shot Into the
aspirations of Senator Penrose, whom he
characterized as a man "already rejected
at the primaries."
With Secretary of Labor Wilson, who
is a mombor of his campaign party, Mr.
Palmer spoko at the Shamokln Opera
House. The auditorium waa crowded to
the doors. The candidate repeated the
44th of his GO counts In the Indictment
against Penrose, declaring thero was no
reason for even rigid Republicans to vote
for him slnco the tariff would not be rtn
Issue for the next six years.
In speaking of Penrose's dubious vic
tory at the primaries, Mr. Palmer said
"It will give Mr. Penrose cause for long
nnd serious thought If ho will give a mo
ment's study to the returns of the May
primary. Ho will find that what some
of his Republican organs choose to call a
primary triumph Is nothing more or less
than a repudiation.
"Penrose will go down to a certain and
Ignominious defeat In November, for the
people nre coming to a realization of the
truth that political morality Is a prime
essential to further political effective
ness." He also paid a tribute to J. Benjamin
Dlmmlck, and said:
"No man In Pennsylvania has per
formed a greater service to the people In
recent days than has J. Benjamin Dlm
mlck, whose brief campaign for the Re
publican nomination for Senator, unsup
ported by a single wheel of n powerful
State political machine, gained for him
self nnd tho causo he represented the In
dorsement nnd approval of more than
100,000 of tho honest citizens of Pennsyl
vania." GOOD TIME FOR TEACHERS
