Special DttpateS to Turn Ban. PKiLADtuntA, Mar IS. Pennsylvania M4 Philadelphia to-day paid tribute to the Iron Division (the Twenty-eighth) their own heroes, In the biggest demon stration that ever thrilled the birthplace of liberty. Notables from all parts of the com monwealth were In attendance, even as almost every hamlet was represented In the army of marching men. It was host of more than 2,000,000 Pennsylvania and New Jersey residents who witnessed the demonstration. Tho route of the parade covered more than eight miles, and It took the men an hour and three-quarters to pass a given point. From ten o'clock when Major General Charles H. Mulr gave the order for the advance, the men were onsthe march. The head of the column reached Shlbe Park at 12:30. Every point of vantage was occupied. The crowds were as deep as it waa pos sible for them to be and permit the back, rows to see something of the marchers. Every window that bore on the' street was In the possession of Just as many faces as It would hold. Indus trial establishments permltetd their workers and their families to occupy window space. Tribute Paid to Dead. Almost sixteen and a half miles of humanity welcomed the heroes. Thou sands In the multitudes that lined tho streets and occupied the grandstands on all parts of the parade route, had a personal Interest They had sons, brothers, sweethearts, cousins or other relatives In the line, and many of them were there to pay tribute to dear ones who had made the supreme sacrifice. Governor Sproul estimated that about 800,000 came from up-State to witness the demonstration. New Jersey sent thousands, and Philadelphia turned out fully three quarters of a population which is pushing tho 2,000,000 mark. Up Broad street the solid streams on each sido continued. Many club houses had grandstands In front of them and the windows above the stands were oc cupied also. The Union League's Serv ice Club at Broad and Spruce streets had one of the stands. Another was In front of the City Club in Broad street below Spruce. The balconies of the Broad Street Theatre held interested spectators. All the windows of the Bellevue-Str.atford, the Waltoh and the nita-Carlton were filled'. Crovrd. Surge Into Street. In front of, the Bellevue-Stratford, the private stand at Broad and Locust streets, the Manufacturers Club and the Union League the crowd swelled Into the street. In front of the Union League the spectators were twenty deep, the rear rows making up what they lacked In length of legs' and stretch of neck by ac quiring boxes. Chestnut street presented an unusual picture, and for real enthusiasm there was nothing so Inspiring us the picture of two Bolld walls of spectators reach ing from curb line almost to the house line on each side, with the platoon front, of the soldiers stretched from curb to curb. This condition prevailed virtually the entire length of Chestnut street from Broad to Third, and was repeated In Market street. Around the Independence Hall grandstands there was a surging, cheering mass. In Market street the crowd was so deep In places, particularly at street corners, that it was virtually impossible to pass. Many crushes re sulted, and at times the Jams threatened Injury to those Involved in them. Of chief Interest along Spring Garden street was the delegation of high Bchool girls In front of the Philadelphia High School for Girls, at Seventeenth street. The fresh young students wero attired In prim, white frocks and Red Cross head dresses. DISAGREE IN BARREL MURDER. Jury Attain Falls to Ilench Verdict In Anselmo Case.

J.0,000 ASK INFORMATION Interior Department's Plan Proposes Cooperative Settle ments and Aid for Fighters. Speciat Dttpatek to Tbs Sox. Wasihkoton, May 16. Secretary of the Interior Lane la passing en to Con gress the demands of returned soldiers for farms or publlo lands. Hearing of the Farms for Soldiers Movement, 40,000 of these men have applied to the Interior Department for Information for lands. To each of them the Department has ex plained that development of Its plana rests solely with Congress. The Secretary has recommended legis lation for the recovery and allotment to soldiers of waste lands throughout the country, and action on the project is ex pected early in the coming session. Con gress may not feel kindly toward the Secretary's propaganda, which already is bearing fruit in letters to members from their constituents, but the 40,000 appli cants will doubtless bring heavy pres sure to bear. Members of the Congress are almost a unit In favor of some action and It has been Indorsed by practically every offi cial of the Government who is con cerned. As a result there. Is little doubt that somo plan will be worked out early In the session. It Is certain that a num ber of bills will bep romptly Introduced. The Interior Department has a com prehensive plan. It announces that if legislation is passed It will begin at once in the development of cooperative farm settlements for soldiers and sailors in nearly ail of the States. Land Iteady In All States, In practically every State ' there are large areas of land suitable for this purpose. There la dry land In the West that needs water whfch can be provided by building dams and canals. In the East are large areas of cutover or logged off timber lands from which It will be necessary to blow the stumps and clear off the underbrush. In the South is a large amount' of Cutover land nnd swamp land which must be drained. Many of the soldiers have asked If It will be possible' for them to obtain a Job near their homes by draining, clear Ing, irrigating and improving these lands. That again depends upon the action of Congress In providing the money for construction. The plans pro poso that these settlements be scattered all over the country so that It would be possible for every honorably dis charged soldier or sailor or marine to 'work near his old home. There would be work of all klnd in connection with these seltlemcTi'j. from the highest technical and cjrlcal positions to that of laborer. The plan involves "the new farm Idea" In that there will be built what nro known as community Bettlements, each containing a number of farm homes so that the men will have near neighbors. good roads over which to bring their produco to town and a market for the sale of produce. Efforts will be made to overcome the hnndlcaps'of farm life that are driving the people to the cities the lack of social life In the country, the distance between farm homes, the re moteness from the postoffice and the newspaper, and the desire for better school facilities for the children. Dnlld Up New Vlllafrea. Under tho new way there would .be the farm village, the settlement of farm ers around a ccntro which Is their home, in which can be gathered most of the advantages of the city the good school. tho church, moving pictures, well out fitted stores and these with good roads. rural express, telephone, automobile and the post office will make a life on the farm a thing of far different moaning from the Isolated life it has been. After these service men have con structed." the dams and canals, or cleared the' cutover land of stumps, or bullftho ditches to drain the swamp lands ; after they have helped to erect housjs and barns, built fences, constructed roads and laid out town sites; built creameries, canneries, warehouses, schools; after they have. In fact, reclaimed the land, the Government Intends to allow the men to pick out one of these farms. Th' plan provides that these farms and hemes shall be paid for In email pay ments over a long term of years. It is expected the men will bo nble to pay the first small payment out of the wages re ceived from tho Government in helping to build these settlements. The balance can be paid from the proceeds from the sale nf crops. It Is planned that the Government also will furnish the new farmers with the necessary stock nnd farm Implements, those to be paid for In small payments spread over several years. Instructors for the Men, These farms will contain from forty to eighty acres for general farming pur poses, from eighty to one hundred and sixty acres for live stock purposes, from fifteen to twenty acres for fruit farms and from five to twenty acres for truck farms. Competent Instructors In farm practice will be stationed on each project to teach the men how to make a success of farm ing. This will make it possible for men who know nothing about farming to make a success of theso farms. The plan is to be open to every man who has worn Uncle Sam's uniform In the great war.

DAWSON ADMITS TEN .CITATIONS UNEARNED Patriots' Secretary Will Try to Prove Title to One. Special Despatch to The 8ck, Boston, May 16. The claim of A, Clarence Dawson, secretary of the League of American PAtriots, Inc., to eleven citations for valor as a flier in France, rather aroused the curiosity of Pilot Sherburne Eaton, forifieriy of the Lafayette Escadrille. Eaton did a bit ot investigating, denounced Dawson and the latter quickly dropped ten of the eleven citations he claimed, Dawson in sisted, however, that he 1b entitled to one and has sent to the Burllngame Coun try dub In California for a bag of papers and briefs to back him up. In the meantime the Chamber of Com merce Is conducting an inquiry into the doings of the league and its head, Dr. A. Sydney Matthews. The latter meets sceptical comments on the league and its alms by declaring Bolshevist and I. W. W. agitators, whose avowed purposo It Is to fight, hare entered Into a blackmail plot against It and are trying hard to discredit It and Its ofllcera with the pub lic. Dr. (Matthews Is mum when it comes to teUIng of Dawson's or his own past He says the silence In regard to himself Is to protect his mother and daughter from any possible vengeance by the rad icals he and his organisation ore fight ing.

Rogers, criticized the conduct of Judge Harland B. Howe of Vermont, who presided at the trial. Judge Martin T. Manton dissented. The particular criticism of the ma jority opinion was directed at Judge Howe's attitude toward three persons put on the stand by the Government as hos tile witnesses. They were Mrs. Mabel Campbell.

"What'll you have, you name It," said ho. Many voices shouted "Over There." So to the new Sixty-ninth, which had escorted Secretary Baker from the Penn sylvania station, and to hundreds of the old Sixty-ninth whose tired feet had been lifted on and on along the roads of France by the same strains, the lad who wrote and composed ''Over There" sang his bugle song with his own fixings of gesture and modulation . And then he crooked his back and danced across the stage and ofT while out "in front" they howled with glee long utter he de parted. Tho Veteran Corps of the Sixty-ninth was having a benefit performance to ratso money for monuments in Calvary and Green Wood cemeteries to commemo rate Its dead of every creed and for a fund. to assist veterans or their families In case of need. How much was sub scribed was not announced, but It was a large sum. Francis P. Garvan, Alien Property Custodian and chairman of the evening. headed the list with 15,000. which he paid for two boxes. Justice Aaron J. Levy subscribed J1.O00. Justice Rosnlskv JI50 and there were many others In ad dition to those who bought scats. Justice Mulqueen in introducing Mr. Garvan admitted that the 165th Infan try was not wholly Irish, but explained. "The example and Inspiration of the Irish boys In that regiment made them an irisn." Presenting the flag, while two com panies of tho new Sixty-ninth stood at attention on the stage, Martin Conboy reminded the audience that It was Sec retary Baker who made It possible, by an official order, for the 165th Regiment 10 reiam tne regimental colors of the Sixty-ninth. What the OOth Fla Means. "This flag." Mr. Conboy said, "repre sents wnat tho Secretary s order was de. signed to preserve, tho hlbtory of the regiment which bore It and the con tinuity of its organization. The me orles of nil tho glorious past was thereby entrusted to this regiment. It compelled courage, demanded devotion, spelled sacrifice to tho last letter, and now to the names of the old bands of heroes, Corcoran, Meagher and Kavnnagh there are added the names of the new band, led by Donovan and Duffy and Ander son lLlcut.-Col. Anderson of the 165th who wan in atage boxl and all the others among the living, and McKenna and Joyce Kilmer and 613 more among the aeau. Turning to the Secretary of War Mr. Conboy added: "And among the dead whom the regi ment left In France there was a Cant. Charles 1). Baker, a Corporal Arthur W.

"And now. Mr. Secretary. I present It to you on belialf of the Veteran "ons of the Sixty-ninth Regiment, on behalf of all the members of the regiment. In cluding that great number whoae silent tents are spread on Fame's eternal camping ground, this replica of the flag which symbolizes the history of the regi ment nnd Ha record of devotion to the United States." The reglmentnl orchestra played "Garryowen"' nnd Mr. Baker made re ply to tho presentation speech. Ho said that America, by reason of Its unified effort In the war, was writing a new date lino in its hlttory; that except In a geographical henso lines had been obJ llterated nnd "North Cnrollne nnd North Dakota have discovered one another " He told ot seeing tho Sixty-ninth nt Camp Mills before tho Rainbow Division went abroad and of seeing It later In France, where, near Baccarat, ho went to the front lino and found the old Slxty ntnth holding it. He had there said to them that for the first time ho hail seen American soldiers "standing guard on tho very frontier of freedom." The Secretary told of tho French Gen eral, Cnstelnau, replying, when the Sec retary expressed a desire to see No Man a Land. 'It used to bo No Man's Land, but when the Forty-second (Rainbow) Di vision arrived It became Yankee Land." Still later, on the Rhino, Mr. Baker saw, ho said, descendants of men who had left Europe to seek liberty back on the Rhino ns American soldiers "with liberty In their hands and freedom for all peoples of the earth." "I do not want to taka a pessimistic view or tne world situation nt this time.' Mr. Baker continued, "but the waters are troubled all over tho faco of the civilized world. All over the world men. women and children nro starving, Traditions have proved unstable ; the ancient forms of low and order have broken down.

LYNCHING REPORT AROUSES HAYWARD Negroes' Leader Intimates n- gratitude to Fighters. "It that report is true all the Huns aro not In Germany by any means, and the quicker we get rid of those here the better oft we will bo," dectarod Col, William Hayward, speaking last night at tho monthly meeting of the 'Repub lican County Committee. The Colonel, who was commanding of ficer of tho negro regiment formerly known as tho Fifteenth In the' National Guard, was roferring to the recent re ports from Durant, Miss., of the lynching of a negro girl charged with sending an Insulting letter to a whlto wcctiap. "The thought occurred to me," he added, "that In view of the sacrifices the negro soldiers made In this war to make the world safe for democracy It might not be a bad idea to make the United States safe for democracy." Col. Hayward had not intended to rair" the negro question, he said, but he considered it one of the most serious In the country. The French, with whom his regiment was brigaded, he declared, thought more of whether a man's heart was whlto or black than they did as to his skin. It was with shame that he was forced to acknowledge it Was not until they reached the French that they found a feeling that a black boy could suffer as much from a wound as a .white soldier. The Colonel Intimated that the true story of the American Expeditionary Force would soon come out. "I will say." he remarked In closing, "that not a thing happened during the last four years, either preceding the war or during mobilization or in France, that did not make me a better Republican every twenty-four hours." Samuel S. Koenlg, president of the committee, said that It was a source of gratification that a Republican Congress was about to assume command In Wash. Inston and that he hoped steps would be taken at once to resume orderly government In this country, an end for the accomplishment' of which the coun try had turned over the control of af fairs to the Republicans. Do You Pay 66 for Sirloin Steak? or 33 Cents? We serve all tastes A recent Government bulletin quoted sirloin steak in different cities at prices ranging from 33 to 66 cents! We buy live cattle, according to quality, all the way from $7.00 to $20.00 per hundred-weight, live weight. Sirloins from these cattle vary greatly in quality. Some retailers sell 33 cent sirloins. These steaks come from cheaper cattle. Customers of other retailers demand choice sirloins at 66 cents. These retailers buy meat from higher-priced cattle. Also, the retailer who carries complete stocks, delivers to your door, and lets you run a charge account, has to get higher prices than the retailer who runs a "cash and carry" store. We sell beef of a given quality at practically the same price all over the country except for slight differences due to freight rates. And our profit hardly affects the price at allonly a fraction of a cent per pound. Swift & Company, U. S. A.

It was the preparation In the American character which mado pos sible this great army under the selec tive draft law so well represented by the Seventy-seventh Division under the com mand of Gen.
