City Marketing Commission
Evolves Plan for Reducing
Stress Caused by Lack of
CHtCAdO, Oct. 7. Co-operatlntr with
various charity orgnnlzntlons, tlio City
OJnrlctlne Commission, which has touch
ed the problem of the unemployed In Its
campaign for municipal markets, has
formulated a program for handling the
labor problem this winter, and has sent
It to the Chamber of Commorco and
leading cmployeis of lubor for ap
proval. Tho marketing commission suggests
that before winter sets In tho city tako
a definite stand against being made tho
dumping ground of thousands of floaters
xvho drift Into Chicago every fall to
spend tho winter. It believes that If the
city and employers alike announce that
residents of Chicago will bo preferred In
tho place of men through tho winter
months, this movement will bo checked.
Big employers aro urged to aid the
workers during tho winter months by
putting employes on half-pay, Instead of
rutting their forces In two, If business
conditions mako any reductions neces
sary. They are further urged to give
preference to married men, or those sup
porting dependents, If lopping names off
tho pay roll becomes necessary.
Department atoies nnd factories em
ploying girls are asked to retain girls
who must support themselves In prefer
ence to those who are seeking work to
earn "pin monpy." The situation among
tho working girls, the commission de
clared, demands particular attention.
As tho first step In carrying out this
programme, the commission suggested
that all big employers subii,,, "jreful es
timates of the number of employes they
believe they must dlschnrgo January 1,
It they are convinced reductions In work
ing forces must bo made. With this data
on hand, tho commission proposes to es
tablish a municipal employment ex
change, and mnkp Immcdl.itc effoits to
secure work for perons who may find
themselves without Jobs during the win
Malces No Answer to Charges of Un
derstanding' With Murphy.
ALBANY, Oct. V. Theodore HooEevolt.
fit a packed meeting In Odd Fellows Hall
last night, finished up a day of speech
making In Hudson River cities, Including
Kingston, Hudson, CatsklU, Chatham and
Troy. With Frederick M. Davenpoit, the
Progiesslve candidate for Governor, ho
arrived at the Albany hall from Troy at
10 o'clock.
Jlr. Roosevelt continued to turn the
brunt of hlo attacks on William Harnes
and Charles S. Whltmnn, but paid little
attention to either Churles F. Murphy
or Governor Glynn.
He mado no attempt to answer the
charge of Republican organization men,
appearing In an Albany afternoon parer.
that theio was a bi-partisan combine
between the Democrats and Progressives
resulting In the selection last winter by
the I-eglslature of Homer D. Call, a Pro
gressive, as State Treasurer. He declared,
however, that Jlr. Ilarnes had played Into
tho hands of tho Democratic party.
"Mr. Barnes," he said, 'calls tho Pro
gressives Democratic aids, but I charge
thut ho hlms-olf is tho greatest asset to
tho Democratic party in tho nation. Ho
savs ho Is shocked at the Progressives,
yet ho has Just nominated Mr. Whitman
fer Governor, who one year ago accepted
tho Murphy nomination for District At
torney of N'mv York nnd thereby became
great Tamany asset.
"Lot Mr. Barnes ponder In sackcloth
rchd ashes on these deeds of his, nnd
then let hlrt retract nnythlng else ho
may have to sny about any other man
as an nld to the Democratic party."
Mr. Roosevelt Mid that the men who
at tho primary voted for Harvey D. Hln
man, In tho Republican party, and John
A Hennessy. in tho Democrats party,
K'ero in sympathy with the Progressive
movement, nnd ho criticised both those
candidates for not continuing the fight
after the primary.
Senator Davenport hailed Roosevelt as
the man elected by former Governor
Hughes to carry on tho fight In this State
that he had begun.
So Characterized by A. Mitchell
Palmer In Speech at Lancaster.
LANCASTER. Pa., Oct. 7.-Senator Pen
rose and William Lorimcr, who was
Jected from his sent In tho United States
Senate, were "shown up" and compared
ns "Heavenly Twins" nnd both declnred
guilty of party "bossism" by tho revcral
speakers at a meeting which crowded the
Lancaster County Courthouse Inst night;
more than 1000 nttended, nnd nmong tho
speakers were Vance C. McCormlck, A.
Mltehell Palmer and Henry C. Nlles.
Mr. Palmer In Ifls nddress charged Sen
ator Penrose with deliberately arrnylng
himself at nil times with dishonest meth
ods In political affairs, and called upon
him to defend, if he could, the vote which
he cast In 1911 to keep Lorlmer In the
Senate. Tho Democratic senatorial can-
uiuuiu a ouHiuini; uenunciuuon came as
n fitting climax to the statement that
Penrose typified the opposite to Repub
licanism. Mr. McCormlck spoke of the extrava
gance at the State Capitol. A feature
of the meeting was the speech delivered
by Henry C. Nlles, of York, long prom
inently Identified with Independent po
litical movement, who declared that ho
would support the Democratic ticket for
the first time. He based his decision
on the fact "that the Wilson Administra
tion has brought about most deslrablo
reforms, which Theodore Roosevelt, the
greatest Independent Republican leader,
had striven for, but which he had failed
to accomplish as leader of tho boss-ridden
Republican party."

Politicians Think They May Decide
on Dark Horse for Mayor.
Politicians along tho Itlalto said to
day that they were somewhat mystified
by tho actions of Senator McNIchol and
Senator Vnro. They saw tho two leaders
Jump Into an automobile In front of tho
Lincoln Building nnd start .ostensibly on
a long auto trip.
This action of the two Senators, who,
not tong ago, woro trying to effect each
other's decapitation, started tongues
wagging. But ordinary surprise turned
to amusement when It was learned that
the automobile, after swerving around
City irall, stopped at Broad Street Sta
tion. There tho two nirn lumned out
nnd lan hurriedly up the steps of tho
Market street entrance. It was noticed,
too, that they carried their own grips.
Subsequently It was learned by nn In
quisitive politician that the two leaders
boarded a train for Lexington, Ky.
Those of prophetic turn of mind soy
that while the Senators will see the races
at Lexington nnd may hnvo tho pleasure
of seeing n McNIehol thoroughbred come
first under the wire, tho real object of
their trip Is to pick a dark horso for the
mayoralty nomination. No matter what'
rendezvous thoy selected In the past, even
though It wcro n hundred miles from
Philadelphia, Information always camo
out about their meetings.
So, en a rushing railroad train, with
comfortable surroundings, they enn talk
and plan In peace. Upon their return
tho politicians on tho inside expect to
receive word to get busy,
Bev. R. W. Miller Gives Different
Version of Conference.
The declaration that Doctor Brumbaugh
was in nlllancQ with Penrose and tho
Republican machine before the primaries,
which was mado by R. M. Little In a
speech nt Lebanon on Monday night,
was refuted yestorday by the Rev. Dr.
llufus W. Miller, a leading minister of
tho Reformed Church, nnd secretary of
the Sundny School Board nnd of the Board
of Publication of that denomination.
Doctor Miller was named by Mr. Llttlo
as one of those who attended the con
ference at the Eellevuc-Stratford where
nn effort was made to have Doctor Brum
baugh run on the same ticket with Mr.
Dlmmlck Instead of Senator Penrose.
Doctor Brumbit.gh's refusal to do this
Jlr. Little Interpreted no proof that ho
'wib In alliance with Penrose.
Doctor Miller agrees that pait of what
Mr. Little said was true, but In some of
the statements, he says, Mr. Little be
foggpd the position of Doctor Brumbaugh.
Doctor Miller says thut Doctor Brum
baugh Is unbosscd, anil that In- Is a man
who will stand on his own feet, and that
thrro was nothing brought out at the
conference In the Bcllevuc-Stratfoul to
Indicate that ho was tied to Cenrose.

Calls Penrose an Economic as Well
as Moral Issue.'
WILKEJs-BARRn, Pa., Oct. 7. Glfford
Pinchot. Washington party candidate for
United States Senator, spent last night
here, and today he conferred with J. C.
Harvey, county chairman; William Tomp
kins, a Progressive leader, and David 51.
Rosscr, former county chairman. Ho re
mained here until 10 o'clock this morn
ing, nnd several of the Progressives again
visited him. He left for Scranton.
In a statement issued here, Pinchot
"You can quote me as saying that Pen
rose is an economic as well as a moral
Issue. This is something higher than a
party fight. Penrose, more than any
other political figure, represents that
mngnato system of government which
serves the corporations rather than the
people, both at Harrlsburg and at Wash
ington, which we have been fighting for
years, and Pennsylvania cannot hope to
secure advanced legislation of benefit to
the poople until Penrose Is defeated "
Higardlng the registration In Philadel
phia. Pinchot said-
"The registration figures are one of the
most favorable things that have occurred
us yet In the campaign, because they
show that the antl-Penroa enrolment
Is on the increase, especially In Philadel
phia Again. I think that proportionately
when the registration Is compared with
the vote as shown in former Philadelphia
elections, the machine majority vote in
Philadelphia has been so cut down that
with the admitted majority in other parts
the State I feel certain of winning"

American-German Trade
Will Be Wiped Out Un
less Security Is Provided,
It Adds.
BERLIN. Oct. 7.
Tho newspaper Vosslcho Zeltung In dis
cussing the effect of the war upon Ameri
can commerce calls upon the United
States to provide safeguards for United
States trade with Germany so that It may
not be wiped out. The newspaper says:
"The returns of enmmerco of the Unit
ed Slates for August show how far com
morco Is affected by the war, or better,
ty tho English mothods of warfare. Tho
American Importations amounted to $120.
3!'9.fKKl against $137,631,000 In August, 1013.
The decrease was only $8,000,000, but the
eportatlons fell off from JISO.900,000 to
$nO,33S,000, this decrcaso being $77,500,000 or
40 per cent. Tho balance wns changed
from surplus exportatlons of 150,000,000 In
August, 1013, to the present surplus of
$10,000,000 In Importations The result for
American trado Is dangerous on account
of tho damago to producers. For In
stance, take tho caso of cotton In the
United States. By the stagnation of ex
ports the normal balnnco of trade has
boen upset. America needs a surplus of
exportation, not Importation.
"Germany buys from America goods
worth about $1,500,000,000 every year nnd
would continue to tnko the greater part
of these exportatlons in war time if pri
vate property enjoyed tho suine protection
In nnval warfare It does on land.
"England has resisted such a rule (pro
x Idlng for safe commerce) and constant
ly Is violating tho international laws of
naval warfare. Tho English press Is en
deavoring to sot tho blame for this dam
ago to commerce upon the German Em
peror, the so-called 'War Lord.' In fact
though the Americans enn thank the Brit
ish 'pirates' for tho Injuries suffered. Tho
only remedy for America to preserve tho
greater part of her necessary commerce
wiin ucrmany and to restoro tho balance
of trado is to create security against
tho piratical ways of England."

Paradise Slain Warriors'
Lot, Belief of Sengalese,
Idol of the French Troops.
For five days a photographer and myself
have eat In this llttlo town waiting. Wo
nre at the battle front because we stum
bled on It. I did not know that I was
at tho front until Informed by a French
"We'll go back," wo explained. "Wo
don't want to go to the front."
"But you ore nt tho front now," tho
officers explained. "You can't go back
now. You will have to stay hero until the
tactical situation has chnnged."
And here we must stny, pledged not to
reveal the namo of tho town or nny de
tails of the lighting. Day nfter day, hour
after hour, nutomoblles have been passing
the little house where I live, en routo to
ono quarter of tho battlficld or nnother.
Thoy enrry soldiers to tho front and bring
back dead nnd wounded. They transport
supplies, food and ammunition.
And above all, this nolso nnd distraction
tho pitiless, persistent roar of cannon con
tinues, always, without Intermission .
"When the facts aro known nbout this
battle," said nn oinccr to me, "It will go
down In history as tho most terrific and
costly artillery duel that human beings
have over fought."
The scenes about here almost defy de
scription. A priest has Just led four men,
caught pilfering from dead bodies on the
battlefield, to tho place whero they are
to bo shot. A hugo Gorman, a magnifi
cent specimen of manhood, who camo Into
tho French lines as a spy becauso his
olllcers were desperately In need of In
formation as to the position of French
troops, has Just been nrrcsted. How he
ever expected to got his information back
to hfs chiefs I cannot lm.tginc. As I
looked at him I realized how much moro
bravo a spy must be than an ordinary
soldier. I think ho must have resign',
himself to a spy's death before ho left tho
Gorman lines, because, when ho was held
up aro street corner, ho looked over tho
heads of his captora as If ho were only
nn onlooker.
"He'll cuddlo up at the foot of a stono
wall pretty soon," said a soldier.
The Jlttle boys of tho town fight bat
tles themselves, using chestnuts as am
munition. They throw tho big nuts with
all of their stiongth. nnd I have seen
them throw stones In their excitement.
Ono llttlo fellow fought with his scalp
laid open. Tho wnr game has hypnotized
them. Their Idols nro tho black Songa-
leso troops. Thoy know that a Sengalese
would rather dlo In battle than In bed
because ho bollovcs that tho best corner
of heaven Is saved for the men who are
killed In action. Tho French officers
ngreo with the boys In their liking.
"I wish I could believe about heaven
as they do," one said to me.
Stumbling on tho front is really no
fun. It makes every one angry, although
you sco nothing. But tho olllcers tell
you that you are going to run away nnd
tell the Germans what you have seen. I
don't know any Germans at II over
here. The officers told me there was a
military movement nnd I saw troops mov
ing. But If I did get hold of n Ocrman
who would listen to mo all I could tell
him would be that I had see some sol
diers, and I'm sure that tho Germans
know by this time that there aro such
things as French and English soldiers.

Liquor Question the Overshadowing
One in Framing War Revenue Bill.
WASHINGTON, Oct, 7. - Whether
whisky shall be tasted higher and whether
whisky and beer shall bear tho burden
of the "war tax" were tho questions to
day promising tho bitterest contest be
tween tho 8ennto and House on the
emergency revenue legislation.
The "liquor question" overshadowed tho
entire tax bill situation. Strong opposi
tion Is certain in the House to tho In
crease In taxes on beer to $1.75 a barrel
nnd flvo cents a gallon on rectified
spirits, adopted by tno Senate Democrats
In caucus late last nlgnt. wncn inc oiu
was in the House, Democratic leaders,
after a hard fight, succeeded In exempt
ing whisky from further taxation. The
Prohibitionists nro nlso ngalnst the tax.
Meeting nt 10 o'clock today tho Senate
Democratic caucus made haste to com
plete and report the bill today. Elimina
tion of tho House tax of two cents a
gallon on gasoline, extensions of Spanish
war Btamp tnxes to patent medicines and
cosmetics, reduction of tho tax bank cap
ital from J2 to Jt n thousand, and tho beer
and whisky tax changes left tho bill
almost complete by the caucus today.
