John J. McCIurc, "wet" leader of Delaware count, had charged Dr. ftoyer's attitude was part of a Vare campaign of reprisal because of the failure of liquor men of that county to support John R. K. Scott for Lieutenant Governor at the spring primary. "There is not the slightest founda tion In fact for the leported statement of McClure," said Vare, "I could not Influence Ur.

In a statement today Dr. Itojer de clined that tire dangnr-of a recurrence of the ep'deinic was the one thing that had led him tn lefucc to lift the ban from Chester He said: "Any man who makes such a state ment Is nn uss. There is absolutely no politics in my action, nnd there has not been from start to finish It is an un justifiable and malicious ehaige and the man who made It knows he is a liar.

They ha'd previously announced they would recpen today In spile of the State regulations. Dr, Iloyer's ultimatum was Issued yesterday when Chester authori ties rescinded the closing order they had.issued October 2. JlcClure's hint of retaliation against Senator Spioul was phrased as follows: "The day is not far distant now," he said, "when the people of Delaware County will have an opportunity to square accounts with Senator Vare and those who aie politically associated with him In his new prohibition combine."

"1 have your husband-here: what do you want me to do with him?" "What do you mean?" demanded Mrs. Mautz,, "What la my husband doing at your place?"

Later she learned her hus band, had died of pneumonia, brought on by epidemic influenza at a French concentration camp.

HAY AT HEAD Message Does Not Indicate if Formet, Leader Was -Promoted or Retired The Iron Division has lost Its "t'nele Charley." Major Oenernl Charles II. Mulr has been replaced ns commander of Penn sylvania's pride, according to a cable gram from Lieutenant Henry Oross to his father, K. 7.. Oross, of Harrlaburg. Major Oenernl William II. Hay, for mer commandant of the endot regiment nt Pennsylvania State College, Is the new leader of the heroic Twenty-eighth Division Xo Intimation of whether Oenernl Mulr has been nromoted or retired Is clven .In the cablegram. Oenernl Mulr Is the hero of two of tho nicjsl thrilling stotles of the Amer ican army tn tne war, ami nn ns ieu the former Xatlnnnl Ounrdsmen from Pennsylvania through all their big vic tories. The iron Division has seen more nctlon thnn any other, except, perhaps, the Rainbow, Attnrk at Bols d'Vpremnnt In tho drive on the Argonne Forest In Sei ember. Oenernl MOV nrrlved at tho front Just as the llrt batch of his boys was prcpnrlf,? to attack Bols d'Apremont, a smnll wood within the big forest. There were mnchlne-gun nests In the dense thicket Just ahead. "Ouess t will command one company," he told the colonel of a regiment. And he did, going over the top with them, through nasty mnchlne-gun fire, with shells falling nil around. When il was over, he was as happy as any youngster In the division. "That took me back to my old days In tho Philippines," he said, The next day, he was out again with his troops nt a village south of Exer- mont. He was standing with officers of his staff when two German airplanes flew overhead. One of them attacked tho party of officers, spattering the ground around them with machlnc-gun bullets. Instead of fleeing to cover, Oeneral Mulr picked up a rifle that had been dropped by n wounded soldier and fired two shots at the aviator who was about a hundred yards up. The aviator fled. Oeneral Mulr took command of the Twenty-eight Division at Cnmp Han cock last December Ju.t before It sailed for France. Rapidly Promoted In Wnr Oenernl Mulr was born In Michigan in 1860. He entered West Point in 1881. He served in both the Philippines and the Canal Zone, rising to the rank of colonel when war was declared. Afterward he was promoted to briga dier general and then, In Xovember, 1917, he was made a major general. Fourteen days later he took command of tho Pennsylvania guardsmen. , Major Oeneral Hny has Just been pro moted from brigadier general. He was born in Florida In U60, the same year Oeneral Mulr was born, nnd he entered West Point In 1882, a year after his pre decessor. He was first assigned to the Third Cavalry ; then to the Tenth Cavalry as first lieutenant; was made a captain In February, 1901, and in March, 1911, was promoted to major, holding that rank Just before the outbreak of the war? Alsace-Lorraine tn Wilson's Truce Terms Continued from Pnse One longer regulate consumption. Her mu nitions were kept under a constant Htrain by the incessant hammering of the Allied commander, and In addition vast numbers of guns nnd vast stores of shells have had to bo left behind In the constant retreat which has been conducted Mnce the middle of July. Total Economic Collapse In other words, the war has this year placed many times the demands upon the industries of all the countries involved that it did in the previous years. It has been a marvel to the world that Germany, cut off as she was, could keep her army supplied lj) 1915, 1910 nnd 1917. It is regarded as impossible that she could 'maintain production at the rate ot sonsutnptlon as it has gone on since March, 1918. This economic collapse of Germany Js one of the factors reckoned upon by those who are confident that Germany must accept the terms now, being made at Versailles, severe as those terms aro certain to be, Austrian Plea to Versailles The President today was misy writ ing his reply to Austria's last note. That reply li almost certain to be a reference'of the request of Austria -to the Versailles conference. The reply will probably be' forwnrded today. Through Colonel House the Presl dent is in constunt touch with 'the' Versailles conference. New Honor for General Debeney Paris, Oct, HO. Oeneral Debeney has been promoted to grand officer of the Legion of Honor, Oeneral Petaln trans mitted the insignia with full military honors.

COMMANDS IRON DIVISION (Above) Major General William H. Hay, according to a cable, is the new commander nf "Pennsylvania's pride," the Iron Division, succeed ing (below) Major General Charles H. Muir, who has commanded the Twenty-eighth Division through its moit glorious campaigns of the war Engineer Declares For Power Dictator Continued from Pace One . power from private bources. The offi cials contend that It would 'cost too much to make tho proper connections. The method they suggest for connec tion Is costly. And 11 Is also the best method. But cheaper methods could be adopted In view of the fact that this is a national emergency. "in justice to the Philadelphia Elec tric Company It must be said their oner- atln gdepartment has performed splcn- niu wont, for tne last fourteen months tho entire plant has bctn running top speed, with no opportunity ofr a shut down for repairs. Yet the service has neen maintained without Interruption. ine company also must bo credited with having warned Oovtrnmcnt offi cials at the start of the. war that a power shortage, would develon unless proper precautions 'were adopted. -mere nas been nn almost fatal slow ness nt Washington, however. The de lay In building the Beach nnd Palmer streets power station Is a case In point. The company began construction soon after the war started, but was forced to cease because It did not obtain expected financial help from the Government. Months of talk and Investigation have passed without result. The matter Is still In the air and no work has been done on the plant for more thnn a year. "Even If financed at once, this station cannot be put In operation now In less than n year." The four men who are supposed to bo directing the allocation of power In this district nie Mr. Stevens himself, for the Federal fuel admlnstratlon ; Mr. Trig, for the war 'industries board; Major McLaren, for the war priorities board, nnd F, W. Ballard, for the Emer gency Fleet Corporation. "Such a state of'affalrs Is manifestly wrong," said Mr. Stevens': "Under the circumstances, 1 have not even attempt ed to do anything." , MrPall Replies to Plea , In reply to the assertion of Mr. Plei that "these corporations will not limit themselves to their Immediate needs but seek to obtain loans, on easy teims nt a low rate of Interest," Mr. McCall said : ' "If Mr. Plez wss correctly quoted In his newspaper interview regarding' the suggested terms for the co-operatldn of tho Federal Oovcrnmcnt with the Phila delphia Electric Company In financing a plan for extensions of the plant to meet extraordinary war conditions, he certainly is not familiar with the facts. In every case nil estimates for power terulrcmciijs were based upon the con clusions of Government engineers after a complete survey and Investigation by them of the conditions. I hnve written Mr. Pies fully informing him ns to whnt has been done by this company to meet the situation, and what ue have been advised we should expect from the Gov ernment, the terms being entirely satis factory to the representatives of both Interests- In our conference, , "The Philadelphia Electric Company tins agreed to take over afttr the War, at a fair appraisal, all property In which Government funds hhall be Invested to meet war conditions, "Any statement or Intimation that this comiiany desires to profit in any vyay by this siuatlon Is absolutely false, In the face of txtraordluary conditions. It has performed its full duty and will continue to do so, "I entirely agree with the statement credited to Mr. Plez, that 'there have been InvtBlgatlons for many months, but thoy have not resulted In any more power, What we need Is power, rather than surveys and Investigations-.'

The ban on saloons and theatres, en forced during tho Influenza epidemic, was lifted today. , In Camden and Gloucester also the lid was taken off. Reopening of the saloons In Philadelphia was not marked by any unusual Incidents.- At 8 o'clock all barroom doort' were opened quietly, but there was no great rush for drinks. In what is known ns tho thirsty localities the bartenders had a little more to do, than In other places, but In none of the drinking places was there any Indication of a jam. Proprietors were on hand nt all the establishments, realising that the Board of Health would Immediately clamp tho lid down again for any, disorder, and urged pntroas to leave after receiving their drinks. Usual hanger-ons were nbscnt and tn some of the saloons In the central part of the city there were many Intervals during which there were no customers whatever. - Few Arreats Reported A canvass of tho torty-two police dis tricts'1 showed that very few "drunks" were arrested, Several proprietors who had expected a big rush of business added extra bar tenders, but the extra help was dis charged after the noon hour for there was no indication tnat business would be above normal If equal to It. Further Indications that the epidemic Is ranldly waning Is shown by reports of the Board of Health today. There were but eighty-two new cases of the disease, as compared with 125 yesterday. In the iatt twenty-four nours n deaths were reported, while for the pre. vious similar period there were 169. Of th 149 renorted today 101 were due to Influenza and-forty-eight to pneumonia.

Tho article says in part: The Hog Island Investigation report Is being rewritten by the shipping board and tho Attorney General's office In an effort to produce a document that will meet with the approval of both offices. That Is why It has not been published, though six wocks have elapsed since It was first given to the President. At the request of Chairman Hurley, of the shipping board, tho President transmitted to the board the report made by Assistant Attorney General G. Carroll Todd before making it public. Tho bonrd was of tho opinion thnt It would be a mistake to publish the re port as completed by the Investigators, after about six months of unremitting effort, because it did not "do Justice to Hog Island. Thus there results the cu rious situation that tho body which In stigated an outside Investigation ot its own affairs now consldcra and revises the conclusions. The Investigation was precipitated by a communication ' from Mr. Hurley to President Wilson, .in which the former asked for a searching Investigation by the Attorney General's office. Great Waste Alleged "Tho report, as.' originally submitted to the President, thoroughly exonerates the American International Company and ail or us omciais irom mc rcmuicBi. i proach to malversation or criminal of fense of any sort, but it undertakes to make out a case of gross extravagance and waste of public funds by an elab orate argument, in which unit costs nt Hog Island are compared with those of two other Government fabricating planU' the Harrlman yard, nt Bristol, and that of the Submarine Boat Company, at Newark, X, J.. ' '.'In view of the fact that President Wilson's letter of Instruction of Febru ary 14 last to Attorney General Gregory merely directed him to make an investi gation with 'a view to instituting crim inal process If the facts should justify It,' the point has been made that the re port exceeds Its proper scope when It enters the domain of costs nnd financial comparisons, after concluding that there Is no basis for Instituting criminal proc ess. "Officials of the Emergency Fleet Cor poration, who have been In close touch with the colossal work nt Hog Island, took the ground that such a comparison was not fair, as the conditions at the several yards were different. Comparison Called Unfair "These officials consider that the American International Company has done a wonderful work In the face of the most discouraging conditions,, and that It ,1s entitled to recognition rather than reprimand. They aro not satis fled with the exoneration of the com pany from criminal charges', but hold that it Is entitled to a complete vindi cation. From their stand resulted Mr. Hurleys request to .the President to be allowed to review the report of the Investigation. New ninpute started r "Naturally, the Attorney General's of fic? dors not enjoy having the results of six months of unremitting labor din. st-ctcd and discredited by the body vvhjch Invoked Its services to clean up Its Internal affairs. The result Is .that there Is a sort of contest on -between tho two as to what shall MJe written Into tho report, so that both may stand by It, after It Is published. "The shipping board Is undertaking to show Toilil and Mark Hyttinn, his aid, that they aro not 'expert nt figuring costs, and havo already succeeded 111 convincing them that they have erred In their mathematics, Beyond the question of cost account ing methods, nnd the accuracy, uf fig ures, Is tho vaguer question of what constitutes extravagance In vviutiwc, The cry all last year, and still Is, 'ships In plenty, nt any cost necessary In order to get them quickly,' "That was the public view and the "Oejonil the question of cost account no disposition to qulbutj about oasts."

In reply, the attorneys for the dlffertnt subslflla- ties declared that they were fully pro- . tected by the lease of the rapid transit company which, they contended, forced tht P. R. t. to meet all these obliga tions. During his argument, Mr. Ballard, said, "I can assure you with great con fidence that had it ever been contem plated that a tax. which might easily equal upwards of 60 per cent of the. amount of the rental, would have to be paid, the leases would never have been made or would havo ben made on financial conditions very different from those agreed upon, nnd while the Court must now determine that the proper construction Is either to Increase the rental by 60 per cent, or diminish It to the .same extent It cannot be said that In so doing if -s giving effect to anything either party had in contem plation.
