GOVERNOR INVITES EXPERTS TO CONFER ON WORKMEN'S BILL Admits There Is Possibility That Compensation Meas ure Will Be Declared Un constitutional. fhom a STrr connrsroNDES'T. HARRISDUnO, Jan. 28. Governor Brumbaugh hai asked men nationally prominent In Inbor affairs nnd In econom ics to como to Hnrrlsbtirg next week to confer with Attorney Genernl Brown, who Ib now engaged In drafting tho workmen's compensation bill which tho Governor will ask the Legislature to enact. John Mitchell, former president of tho United Mine Workers of Amerlcn, Is among thoso who havo been Invited. He Is a member of tho Workmen's Compensa tion Commission of Now York. Others who will attend Includo Wnllaco D. Yaple, of tho Ohio Commission; William E.

Bonner, of Tnmaq.ua, a member of tho miners' union; Frank Feeney, of Phil adelphia, and F. H. Bohlen. of Philadel phia, sccrotary of tho Industrial Accidents Commission of Pennsylvania. Tho Administration leaders ndmlt thero Is gravo clanger of the act being declared unconstitutional. Governor Biumbaugh Is In favor of ex empting farm and domestic labor, but this very featuro of tho proposed act has brought opposition from ecomonlsts. who have declared It to bo class legislation. Tho bill drawn by tho Industrial As cldents Commission, which was defeated In the session of 1013, failed becauso It Included farm and domestic labor In Its provisions. Tho rural districts united In opposition to It, tho fanners declaring they employed few men regularly, whllo at harvest time they employed men for only two or three days at a tlmo. They nrgued that It was unfair to compel them to provldo compensation. Governor Brumbaugh agrees with them In this, but the opposition of tho farm ers two years ngo has paved tho way for opposition to tho now measuro that 13 being drafted. The small employers, the men who own small factories or manu facturing plnnts and employ few men, aio raising the point that if tho farmor Is to bo exempt becauso ho employs few men, and thoso Irregularly, they should be exempt nlso. ' UNIVERSITY PAPER RAISES QUESTION OF FREE SPEECH Editorials in Red nnd Blue Stir Stu dent Body. Free speech at tho University of Penn sylvania becamo an open Issue as tho result of one of two editorial articles In the January Issue of tho Red and Blue, tho student publication. One artlclo criticises the action of the university authorities in Inviting "Billy" Sunday to speak at the institution. Tho other editorial Is entitled Re grets." No university publication has criticised tho administration in years, nnd students aro interested In tho possible out come. Some think It will mean a now era for college Journalism; others that it will mark the end of tho Red and Bluo unless it returns to Its former policy. The "Re grets" editorial follows: "We had hoped to present In this Issue a critical analysis of Pennsylvania undor grnduate life. It was to havo been written by a very nblo member of tho; faculty whoso views upon tho subject nre Just the sort wo ought to hear. But It would hnvo displeased the authorities, ho said, and the article was not written. We regret tho loss of tho article, but more deeply do wo regret that a member of our faculty should think that he la not at liberty to express his views." The editorial referring to Sunday Is a follows: . " 'Th.j man (ho was speaking of Dr. Charles D. Eliot, of Harvard) who denies tho power and justice of God Is n liar. He Is so low down he'd need an airship to get to hell.' Tho Rev. William A. Sunday, in his sermon on Sunday even ing, January 4, 1915. "It Is generally held "that the purpose and aim of this University Is to mnke every student a scholar and a gentleman, that Is, as like Doctor EI(ot ns possible. Is thero not, then, a slight Inconsistency in the University's Invitation to this man who holds scholars and scholarship In such contempt and who so flagrantly violates the rules of common courtesy to como uplift the students?"
