THAT Congressman Kreider is
keeping in very close touch with
public affairs In his home dis
trict Is Illustrated by the fact
that he will introduce in Congress a
bill for the further enlargement of the
Harrlsburg Post Office.
Mr. Kreider did not wait for some
body else to And out that the federal
building here will not be adequate for
the city's growing needs even after the
present Improvements are completed.
He looked over the situation himself,
observed conditions ajid then took the
matter up with Postmaster Sites. As
a result he will endeavor to show Con
gress the urgent necessity of an addi
tional appropriation for building pur
When Congressman Olmsted pro
cured an appropriation of $120,000 for
the purpose of enlargement here the
parcel post law had not been passed
and nobody could foresee at that time
its early enactment. The Pogt Office
enlargements as planned would have
been quite sufficient to meet the needs
of the city had not the postal service
in the meantime annexed a largo part
of the business formerly handled by
the express companies. As it stands,
the Post Office as enlarged under the
Olmsted act would be but a makeshift
and the increase of appropriation for
which Mr. Kreider will ask is little
less than a necessity if Harrisburg is !
to have a federal building commen
surate with the amount of government
business transacted here.
IT is not only in road building and
road repairs that the State High
way Department stands ready at
all times to aid the farmer. As a
result of the blizzard of the past week
the department ha* felt called upon to
set aside a sum of SIO,OOO to make
passable highways closed by snow.
As soon as the extent of the blizzard
became known officials of the main
tenance division began preparations to
aid the county superintendents in get
ting the main highways throughout
their territories lit for Immediate use.
Wherever the snowfall was heaviest
or the drifts deepest, additional allot
ments of money were made for road
clearing purposes.
This is service of the highest value
to the rural dweller and the city man
as well. In the older days, before the
creation of tho State Highway Depart
ment, when winter came and the roads
were rendered impassable by drifts,
farmers ceased their trips to town.
Produce accumulated that should have
been on the market; some of it spoiled
and others came eventually, when the
sun melted the snow, in quantities too
large to be readily absorbed and at
prices that rendered the farmer small
profit. Now the State takes over the
duty of digging out the roads and ren
dering them fit at all times for travel.
And both tlje farmer and the city
man profit thereby.
CHINA, for years graft-ridden and
as badly governed as is Russia
of to-day, under its new repub
lican form of government is set
ling us a fine example along soine
lines. For instance, there is President
Tuan Shi Kai, who has Just given the
world a lesson in economy by reducing
the salary voted to him by the cabi
net and administrative council to the
amount of 20 per cent., and at the
same time clipping an Item of $40,000
a year from the fund set aside for his
entertainment of Chinese and foreign
In taking this step, Vuan's friends
assert, he is making no - "play to the
grandstand." He Is a plain and frugal
man, lives modestly and simply, and
devotes most of his income to public
works and charity.
Like many of our own United States
Senators—men unjustly made the vic
tims of scandal-mongerlng muckrak
es—Yuan is, comparatively speaking,
a poor man. Though he has had
great opportunities for amassing
■wealth, it is said to-day that he is no
richer than when he first came into
Evidently Yuan is an exceptional
man. Even in this patriot-blessed
country, with ofllce-seeking nation
savers shrieking their good intentions
from every corner, we have failed to
notice even one humble follower of
the worthy Yuan. All of them promise,
if elected, to work great economies
and to save the people money.—but
not at the expense of their own sal
aries, evidently content to rest under
the Biblical Injunction that the "la
borer Is worthy of his hire," and be
lieving that the higher the "hire" the
better for the officeholder.
THE Wall Street Journal notes as
one of the mechanical triumphs
of the year the fact that during
the blizzard of Sunday and Mon
day, Boston, New York, Philadelphia,
Baltimore and Washington enjoyed
uninterrupted long distance telephone
connection. The Journal contrasts this
condition with that which confronted
the people of the Eastern seaboard
on the occasion of President Taft's
Inauguration only five years ago, when
a devastating sleet and snowstorm for
hours isolated Washington and made
communication of any sort with the
rest of the country impossible.
The change has been accomplished
by placing the telephone wires in the
territory named under ground. It was
this "fall-down" at a time when the
whole nation was striving to get into
touch with the national capital that
prompted Theodore N. Vail to attempt
to solve the problem of burying the
■wires—one not so simple as might be
imagined, for at that time the art of
telephony had not reached a stage
where the running of huge under
ground cables was possible. Thousands
of dollars and years of effort were
necessary for the experimental work
leading up to the triumph of a com
municating service that will defy
storm and flood, wind and weather.
Marvels of scientific and business
accomplishment come so rapidly these
days that we pause scarcely a moment
to think of feats that a half-century
agone would have furnished material
for world-wide discussion in the news
papers and magazines. Service is the
watchword of the day we have
grown so used to having those whom
we employ to render It doing the Im
possible for us that we have come to
accept it all as a matter of course.
Nevertheless, this latest achievement
in the telephone world marks a step
forward of more than ordinary mag
nitude; one, indeed, that indicates the
beginning of. the end of the overhead
wire through towns and across
IN view of the recent investigations
of Dr. Raunick. the Health Board
and the Civic Club in Harrlsburg,
the announcement that a State
housing conference is to be held here
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday,
April 6, 7 and S, is of more than ordi
nary interest.
The object of the organization it is
intended to form at that time will be
the improvement of housing conditions
in Pennsylvania by ascertaining and
giving publicity to existing conditions
and promoting legislation, community
planning and replanning with a view
of obtaining comfortable houses at
low rent for wage-earners and the
greatest efficiency from public utilities
in serving such houses.
Harrisburg has improved wonder
fully in this respect in the past years,
but Dr. Raunlck's reports, recently
published by this newspaper, show
that many of our people still live in
badly constructed, poorly ventilated,
unsanitary buildings. We have much
to learn and much to do along this
But the proposed housing asso
ciation must not overstep. There were
indications of mistaken zeal on the
part of housing experts during the last
session of the Legislature that if sup
ported by the legislation sought would
have invaded the personal liberties of
every housekeeper in Philadelphia.
There is a distinct trend toward better
living conditions and public sentiment
will stand back of any practical effort
in that direction—but it must be prac
tical, not theoretical or so mandatory
as to be unpopular. .
WITHIN the nejft several weeks
Council will change the names
of 150-odd streets in this city.
Nothing but the heartiest
commendation can be given this action.
In many parts of the city names of
thoroughfares have been duplicated.
In others obsolete names are in use.
In still others, particularly in the East
End, many streets between the regu
larly numbered highways are named
halves, as "Twentieth - and -a - Half"
Several times the Telegraph has
suggested that many of the important
thoroughfares might be named for dis
tinguished Governors of the State.
Apropos of the present discussion the
suggestion is repeated.
Doesn't it seem fitting that tlio capi
tal of Pennsylvania name Its streets
after the executives who have lived
and made State history here? Doesn't
it seem better than naming the high
ways after flowers or berries, for in
stance ?

The death In Philadelphia a day or
so ago of August M. Conover, one of
the Philadelphia City Troopers who
guarded the bier of Abraham Lincoln
when the body of the martyr Presi
dent lay In state In Philadelphia, re
calls the fact that there Is living In
Harrlsburg one of the men who guard
ed the body at Baltimore. He Is John
B. Patrick, of the State Department,
who, while a soldier hi the Ninety
seventh Regiment, was detailed as a
guard of honor In Baltimore. Mr.
Patrick is a former commander of
Post 58, commander of the Central
Pennsylvania veterans and a member
of the Meade statue commission with
George F. Baer and John Wanamaker.
The body was guarded in this city
during the period it lay in state in the
Capitol by soldiers detailed by the
United Slates authorities, who came
with the train, and by members of the
Invalid corps, as a body of men en
camped here awaiting recovery from
illness or woundß sufficient to enable
them to return to duty was known.
This corps was encamped where the
silk mill stands and was Used for pro
vost guard and other light duty.
Mayor A. L. Roumfort also had a citi
zens corps, who assisted about the
Capitol and aided in keeping the great
crowds in order, not that there was
any difficulty, because all were sorrow
ing at tlie nation's loss, but so that
the people could get Into the building
in an easy manner and no one be hurt
in the press.
"1 should say that an average of
6 0 per cent, of the peach buds in Penn
sylvania have been killed by the below
zero weather we have in this State
• his winter. In some districts the loss
has been greater and in some lower,
but 50 per cent, is a fair figure," de
clared State Zoologist H. A. Surface
to-day. Dr. Burface has been getting
in reports from his Inspectors and
from owners who have been sending
information for the orchard informa
tion service he is organizing.
"The damage is spotty. In some
districts there are reports of whole
sale killing of trees. When the mer
cury goes down to fifteen degrees be
low zero it means death to peach buds
and seme districts have reported that
minimum," said Dr. Surface. "I'm not
crying that the crop is ruined, but I do
know from reports that damage has
been done. Now I'll venture to say
that the orchards that have been sci
entifically cared lor will stand the
zero weather best. The orchards un
cared for and those cultivated until
late in the summer or Fall will be
found frozen and those on which culti
vation stopped In midsummer will be
found to have stood the test very
well. Many reports of damage come
from 2 districts and orchards where
borers and other tree pests have not
been checked and where we know that
the vitality of the trees has been low

The prospective removal of many
of the houses in the lower Wost Side
of Steelton recalls the fact that this
section of the borough used to bt>
known as Ewington. It took its name
from Joseph B. Ewlng, one of the
most enterprising real estate men the
city ever knew and the man who
turned the large fields between the
canal and the river and north of the
Pennsylvania steel works into one of
the flourishing portions of Steelton.
Ewington became a part of Steelton
on March 25, 1882, and for a long
time was known as Ewington, a name
which is still heard, especially among
the older people of Steelton. Among
the names of those who petitioned for
annexation were C. F. Rheeling, Wil

aayß in part: "They
were so busy trying to straighten tan
gles over who is who in Democratic
circles in Butler county that they had
no time for speechmaking. Postmas
ter Thomas A. Frazier, of Butler, and
C. J. D. Stronecker, a banker, who
have been Palmer's elect in the coun
ty, seem to have lost out to-day. The
Reiber faction, which placed Aaron E.
Ueiber on the Common Pleas bench
with the aid of the 'wets' last Fall,
| demanded as the price of peace with
Palmer the getting rid of Frazier as
dispenser of patronage and the recog
nition of County Chairman J. B. Mc-
Junkin, of the Reiber faction, in the
patronage business. Palmer recently
turned down McJunkin on an appoint
