RIGHT OF SIX MEN
TO SIT IN DELAWARE
Speaker Holcomb, Secretary
to Senator Saulsbury,
, Among Those Whose
; Eligibility Is Challenged.
STORIES OF ADVENTURE
FROM EUROPEAN WAR ZONE
DOVEIt, Del., Sept. 2S. The ctlRlblllty
f six members of Iho General Assembly,
Including tho Speaker of the House,
Chauncoy P. Holcomb, to sit during the
special session called to act upon a ro
Tlscd codo and executive appointments,
was 4Uestloncd today when tho legisla
tors assembled at noon.
The members who may bo ousted In ad
dition to Speaker Holcomb, who Is secre
tary to United States Senator Saulsbury,
re Dr. T. O. Cooper, of Wilmington, Al
bert I. Swan, Delaware City; Charles J.
Stoeckel, of Sussex County, and Znchary
T. Harris, of New Castlo County. They
are Democrats. Charles II, McDonald, of
Kow Castlo County, Is another. He Is a
If tho members aro ousted tho Re
publicans will tie In tho Senate, whllo
there will bo 18 Democrats and 15 Re
publicans In the House. Tho charges de
claring their Ineligibility wcro prepared
In a concurrent resolution offered by Rep
resentative Grantland, of Wilmington.
The paper requests tho Attorney General
to glvo an opinion.
Doctor Cooper was appointed Inspector
of DrugB ahd Chemicals, attached to the
Philadelphia Custom House. Ho an
nounced this morning that ho had re
signed. Mr. Swan was appointed post
master at Delaware City bV President
Wilson. Theso appointments were made
since tho last session of tho Legislature.
Mr. Holcomb Is secretary of tho Senato
Committee on Coast and Insular Survey
In Washington. In his defense Speaker
Holcomb asserted the Supreme Court
hud given an opinion that secretaries of
Scnnto committees should not bo regard
ed us Federal appointees.
The charge against Representative Mc
Donald is that he has moved from tho
district he represented In 1913. Mr. Mc
Donald says there Is no statutory law
calling for his withdrawal' from this ses
sion. Governor Miller, In his message, tersely
told the object of tho extraordinary ses
sion and requested the legislators not to
be dilatory In considering the codo.
Three new laws are proposed. The first
calls for a uniform fisheries bill so that
Delaware laws may conform with New
Jersey's over ,flshlng In the Delaware
River and bny. Another concerns par
tition of estates.
A light probably will centre over an
act calling for direct election of Senators.
A the law Is now framed It proposes
that tho Governor call a special election
If a vacancy occurs. This measure Is
favored by Democrats, and Republicans
are supporting a proposition to make It
optional with the Governor to order a
spcclnl election or make temporary ap
pointments. A new law written Into the codo re
quires speclalelectlon of Representative
and Senators If a vacancy occurs within
s. month of adjournment.

A visitor to the American Hospital at

"Splendid fellows tho Turcos nrc, most
of them, with their whlto teeth and fiery,
feverish Kastcrn eyes. They amoko In

day. But English cigarettes arc not fiery
enough for their palate. Fortunately! I
had brought with me a number of Eng

most profuxoly Illustrated, t left for the
Turcos' delight. 'They love pictures,'
said the nurse, 'and will He looking at
them for hours at a time.'
"Ono of thciri, a magnificent fellow,

ho came In, for It had been found neces

which had been split In a fierce hand-to-hand

A striking Incident occurred ot the
conclusion of High Mass In St. Patrick's
Church yesterday when the vast congre
gation was astounded to hear the great
organ p'ciil out the tune, "It's a Long,
Long Way to Tlpporary." St. Patrick's
Is tho largest Irish Catholic congregation
In Canada, and thousands of Its members
are In the contingent of 3S.0M Canadian
soldiers how on their way across the
Atlantic to the war.
As the first notes of the now famous
tune were heard tlio whole congregation
stood still, amazed by the unusual non-
church music. The feeling of surprise
was followed Instantly by smiles and
every evidence of enthusiasm ns the whole
congregation fell Into step, and many left
the edifice singing the song.
An exciting story of the war Is printed
todav bv the Petit Parlslen. It concerns
the adventures of Menard Macgraly, a
private In tho Scottish Highlanders, who
whs captured by the Germans near
Eluding his captors, Macgraly plunged
Into the Olso River whllo the German
soldiers shot at him. Although the but
Ms passed all around him. the Scot dlyed
far beneath the surface. When ho bobbed
to tho surface again the German soldiers,
who were sunning along the banks of the
river, opened another fusltlado with rifles
and magazine pistols.
Macgraly again dived and swam as long
as he could under water. Again ho had
to face the volleys when ho rose to the
surface, the bullets spattering the water
over his face.
After being In the water five hours nnd
swimming many miles, Macgratoy finally
found the French llncs and Joined Ills

Burglars who broke into the homes of

were frightened off, leaving the family
silverware they had packed up.
Mr. and Mrs. Wohl returned to their
home after an absence of a few hours and
found everything upset. The silverware
had been wrapped In a tablecloth nnd left
In a rear shed. Contents of bureaus In
the upper floors were scattered about, and
the Jewelry was found thrown Into a cor

In the most correct manner on their
