ot mora than 600 words on "Silver
Bullets." This contest is open .to

Principals of such schools are re

Starting off with renewed energy, the
second eek of tho campaign to induce
people to lend money to Uncle Sam with
which to carry on the war opened this
morning with subscriptions to Liberty Bonds
,ggrjKatlng more than J2.200.000.
A .subscription of $2,000,000, the third
f this size reported from the Philadel
phia district, was announced from the
Itanklln National Dank. A report from
McKean and Potter Counties showed that
1 the two counties together have subscribed
amounts totaling $100,000. The Quarry
Tillo National Bank, of Quarryvllle, Pa.,
reported that It had taken $71,500 of the
bonds. The Hershey Trust Company, of
Hershey, Pa., reported through the Qlrard
National Bank that It had taken $60,000
worth of the bonds.
The following appeal was Issued by the
Liberty Loan committee of the Third Fed
eral Reserve District:
'In accepting $415,000,000 as Its quota
In the second Llborty Loan! the Third
Federal Reserve District, of which Phila
delphia Is the center, has assumed a tre
mendous task. But as great as the under
taking Is, we cannot and must net think
f failure.
"Philadelphia's tradition for financial
reliability In time of war Is brilliant. Money
has literally flowed from this city whenever
the war cloud has darkened the nation.
Now, when we have become Involved In tho
greatest and most disastrous of all wars,
our city", and tho entire district as well,
must respond as neer before.
"It Is a task In which the rich and tho
yoor have sent their sons to training camps,
and In the course of time these men will
lie fighting In France. If wo send our sons
willingly, certainly we are willing to pro
vide 'money with which to feed and equip
them. Tho poor must not leave the entire
fcurden td the rich, neither must the rich
hold back In the hope that small subscrip
tions will make up the amount that has
been asked of ua. The nation's appeal la
to all classes.
"President Wilson has said tho time of
, supreme test has come. Thla means that
It must be a time of supreme sacrifice.
Consider the sacrl.lces that have been made
by our Allies. Think of devastated Bel-
?h5i ?J hP' England. Bo far, we have
shed no blood at the front and our land
il- .." ft?8 from '"vaolon. Qod grant
ing, these things wilt not come to pass, but
we must assume that they will, as the end
of the war Is not yet In sight. We must
ploture our sons In the thick of the fight
and do all wo can to ameliorate their suf
fering. "Every one must sacrifice to the limit
of endurance. If it means giving up
Pleasures and pastimes, then we must give
them up. We have wondered what the
slacker will say when his children ask him
what ho did In the great war. What will
those outside the fighting age say when
their children ask them what they gave
In the great war?
"Remember you are not asked for contri
butions. Tou are simply asked to put your
money temporarily in Undo Sam's pocket,
tho sateBt depository In tho world."
Tho "Minute Men of 1917" speak for lib.
erty today.

All the Episcopalian ministers of the
city were urged today by Bishop Thomas
J. Garland, in an address before the Epis
copalian Ministerial Association in the
Church House. Twelfth and Walnut streets,
to do thflr utmost to increase the number
of subscriptions to tho Liberty Loan. Char
acterizing the Liberty Loan as ths'basw
nnd chief means of supporting the nation s
war for Justice, Bishop Garland urged the
ministers to work for Its success from their
pulpits and through tho organizations in
their churches.
The Baptist mlntsfers of Philadelphia, at

to Induce all In their churches to buy
The ministers aided the sale of tho first
Liberty Bonds, but had an Imperfect or
ganization. Now they say they will make
a businesslike campaign.
Employes of John Lucas & Co. have been
told In a circular letter signed by Ernest
T. Trigg, general manager of the company,
that the company will flnnnce them In pur
chasing the Liberty Bonds on tho Install
ment plan. "We urge evory employe of this
company to 'go the limit' In the amount of
their subscriptions," says the letter. "Tho
least wo can do for those loyal patriotic
men who have so promptly responded to
the nation's call Is to see that they are
properly supplied with food, clothing and
war munitions in sufficient quantities to do
their duty In tho most efficient manner pos
sible. Remember that white you aro per
forming tho greatest patriotic service pos
sible In furnishing money to our Govern
ment at this time, you arc nevertheless not
giving It, but lending It, and that until it
Is repaid to you the loan draws Interest at
the rate of 4 per cent, payablo twlco a
year, and there la the best security en earth

Tho Boy Scouts aro continuing their help
with unabated vigor. At the top of tho

day, yorung Casanave's sales had totaled
$19,550,000, while those of Garwood were
$20,150,000, but today's reports Indicate
that Wlnthrop has brought In subscriptions
enough to make his total $25,000. The
troop's slogan was "A thousand every day
In October, or bust and wo are going to
get that $30,000 " They have already
passed their goal.
Another Boy Scout has been meeting
with success by offering $50 bonds for
$19 99. offering to contribute a penny out
of his own pocket to make up tho difference
when hla customer seems reluctant. The
ruse has landed many purchasers

Tho thousands nnd thousands of subscrip
tions received last week from small Invest
ors, tho commltteo in charge found Itself
unable to tabulate. These, for all that Is
known to tho contrary, may have amounted
to another $30,000,000.
But even If tho subscriptions have
reached $60,000,000, an average dally sub
scription of $20,000,000 must bo kept up
until October 27, tho last day on which np
plications may bo filed, If tho Philadelphia
district Is to tako tho $415,000,000 worth
of bonds which Uncle Sam offers It.
Nothing but confidenco that this amount
will bo subscribed has been expressed by
tho commltteo In charge of tho campaign,
but they aro sparing no effort to clinch
their belief.
Reichstag Discussion of War
Aims Indicates Waning

LONDON, Oct 8.
London, saw In Berlin reports of n,

held In the Reichstag today anotlicr echo
of Field Marshal Halg's guns blasting
their way to victory on the western front.
The Berlin reports, coming by way of
Amsterdam, Indicated tho Government had
been compelled to this step of debating
war alms by growing boldness of the So

Colonel Marquardt promised that the
matter should be remedied as soon as It was
established that the Incorporated men were
