KQHITK OPENS HIS ELECTION CIMPM Elaborate Telegraphic Arrange ments Made For Circulation of Premier's Speech I.adybank, Scotland. April 4.—Pre mier Asquith opened his election cam paign this afternoon in the Masonic Hall of this little village. The hall is a diminutive building with a holding capacity limited to 800. Under these circumstances the speech of the Prime Minister was made to the sixty re porters present rather than to the delegates of the Scottish Liberal As sociation who filled the rest of the hall. The elaborate telegraphic arrange ments for the circulation of the Pre mier's address throughout the United Kingdom testified to the importance attached to the" speech in- political circles. Premier Asquith. as befitted a man who had Just assumed the duties of Secretary of State for War, quickly approached the subject of the army crisis. He said he had felt it to be his duty in the higher interests of both army and state, to assume his new office because "a grave situation had been created both in regard to the discipline of the army and in connec tion with its relation to the civil power." The Premier continued: "There is a certainty that 1f thins* went or. as they had threatened to do •a controversy would have arisen which every patriotic man would have been anxious to avoid until a case of crucial urgency arose." a petition to run for Democratic State committeeman from Pike. Mr. Martin had three petitions, one from Williamstown- and vicinity, signed by 69 persons: 112 from the. lower end, principally Middletown and Londonderry, and 71 from Penbrook and vicinity. MBOR DSVS FIXED oypiCEiMra Governor Tener Urges Conserva tion and Nature Study in Document | Governor Tener to-day Issued his i proclamation formally designating April 17 and April 24 as the Spring j arbor days and recommending not i only the planting of trees but that the rising generation should be taught the value of birds and animals. The proclamation says: "Whereas an awakened public con science has made Pennsylvania the foremost among the States in the en ergetic and practical work of restora tion and preservation of forest lands and the promotion of tree culture, "Now, therefore, inasmuch as the observance' of arbor days has been productive of material public good, I hereby designate Friday, April 17, and Friday, April 24, 1914, as arbor days. "It is earnestly recommended that the people throughout the State take • an active part in the planting of trees along the public hignways and streams, upon the waste lands, in tne schpol grounds and public and private parjts. in . order to provide for the needs of future generations.

COUNT MICHAEL KAROLYI TO TOUR EASTERN STATES By Associated Press New York, April 4. —Count Michael Karolyi, leader of the independent party in the Hungarian Parliament and one of the wealthiest men in Hun gary, arrived here to-day on the steamship Mauretania. He will spend nearly two weeks touring the Eastern section of the United States. Count Karolyi said the object of his visit was to awaken in the minds of Hungarian-Americans a realization of the power which they can exert in shaping the affairs of their mother country along the lines of democrati zation, for which his party is working. DECKS CLEARED FOR FIRST BASEBALL LEGAL BATTLE By Associated Press Grand Rapids, Mich., April 4. Decks were cleared in United States District Court here to-day for the first real legal battle between organized baseball and the Federal League. Wil liam F. Killiffer, the catcher who be gan his baseball career with Michigan teams and worked his way to the ma jors, was the storm-center. The ques tion for the court to decide was whether Killifer is the property of the Chicago team of the Federal League or belongs to the Philadelphia Na tionals. VILLA TIKES CHARGE OF IS TROOPS [■Continued from First Page] of the cities of Saltillo and Monterey, the capitals of the States of Coahuiia and Nuevo Leon. Northward from Saltillo toward Monterey, little difficulty might be en countered by the federal troops and it is not improbable that the fugi tives from Torreon will make an at tempt to join the federal garrison at Monterey. Not a Simple Task The escape of General Velasco and his men from the rebels, however, does not appear to be a simple task. Their retreat toward Durango t > the south west or to the north or east is said bj military men to be impossible unless they cut their way through rebel ter ritory. The railroa-1 which connects Tor reon and Zacatecas to the south has long been out of commission and now serves only to mark the trail ovei which General Velasco and his troop? will have to march. Before reachin- Zacatecas it is thought certain tha General Velasco will encounter the rebel forces under General Panfilo Vatera and will probably suffer from flanking attacks by rebel troops from Durango. Military men not intimately con nected with the federal administrator express the opinion to-day that Gen eral Velasco's retreat will resolve it self into an effort of each man foi himself. They say that the next move of' the rebels will be to start cam paigns against Saltillo and Monterej and possibly subsidiary expedition? against Zacatecas lying directly south of Torreon. At the same time the rebel task of attacking and capturing Tampico on the coast of the gulf . f Mexico con tinues under the direction of General Pablo Gonzales from his headquar ters in the city of Victoria. Another large quantity of small arms and machine guns—although it is not to be compared with the amount j captured at Torreon—was added to the rebel supply this week when a ! federal force under Colonel Emriquez | Perez was cut to pieces northwest of iof San Luis Potosi.

[By, FORMER IVOR, IS DEMI [Continued from First Page] member of Dr. Kremer's church two years ago. Born in Middletown In the death of Maurice C. Eby, Harrlsburg has lost one of Its widest known men. He was burn at Miadle town in May, 1846. His parents were Jacob Rupley Eby and Elizabeth Gross Eby, who moved to Harrisburg in 1847, taking up their residence at 502 Market street Later the Eby home was located at 500 Market street. On an opposite corner was the general store of Eby and Kunkel. ■This firm in later years was known as Jacob R. Eby and Son and Eby broth ers. Later Maurice C. Eby was the proprietor, continuing at the old stand until 1904 when he closed out his business following the opening of the Market street subway. Mr. Eby was educated in the Har risburg schools and at Lafayette col lege, being one of the first to enter that institution as a student of the scientific department. Following his graduation from Lafayette college, Mr. Eby made a three-year tour of the continent The greater part of the time he spent at Geneva, Switzer land and Carlsruhe, Baden. In fol lowing yearß Mr. Eby made other tours, and he told with much interest of his travels, and of old land marks in foreign lands. As proprietor of the general store at Fifth and Market streets in 1871, Mr. Eby became widely known among the farmers of the vicinity. He es tablished one of the first seed stores Harrlsburg ever had and farms for miles around raised crops from seeds sold by the Eby firm. Mr. Eby also did a large wholesale business. Common Councilman Mr. Eby w«s a Democrat in poll tics. In 1889 he represented the Ninth ward In the old common council. Two years before ho had been made the first agent for the Society for the Pre vention of Cruelty to Animals in Har risburg and while in Council he pre- and had passed an ordinance making it a misdemeanor to allow j broken glass, lumber, stones, coal. | etc., to remain in the streets In order to protect the horses. In 1893 he was elected Mayor of the city and he enforced most rigidly the provisions of all ordinances framed with a view to protecting animals. It was he who first Inaugurated the sys tem of caring for "drunks" without sending them to jail and many a man given a chance to sober up avoided jail punishment during the career of Mayor Eby. City's "Big Brother" It was during his twenty years' ad ministration as probation officer that Maurice C. Eby was referred to by Judge Kunkel as the "Big Brother*, of Harrisburg. He was faithful in his duties in bringing juvenile offenders into court, but he always plead for leniency and stood sponsor for many boys. Many a youth to-day Is lead ing a good life because of the Interest shown by Mr. Eby. As probation of ficer Mr. Eby served without any pay. For the past fourteen years Mr. Eby had been living at his home on Cottage Ridge, Third and Maclay streets. When the Sixth ward was di vided and that portion of the ward became a part of the Eleventh, Mr. Eby was elected without opposition as alderman and he served in that capacity until this year when he was succeeded by George D. Herbert. His Country Home Shortly after his first illness, Mr. Eby had a country residence at Grant ham, Cumberland county. For sev eral years the Orantham home was a popular place on July 4. On this day Mr. Eby always provided enter tainment for the residunts of Cumber land county for many miles around. Mr. Eby was a charter member of the old Harrisburg Board of Trade and was its president during the first year the Board of Trade met In the Market street building. Mr. Eby was ulso one of the charter members of the Dauphin County Historical So ciety. Many relics now in the posses sion of the Historical Society were gifts from Mr. Eby. Mr. Eby was identified with the old Harrisburg City Passenger Railway. Company, the Citizens Passenger Rail- ' way Company and subsequent com- | panies now under control of the Har-1 risburg Railways Company. He wag ! a charter member of Robert Burns Lodge, No. 464, F. and A. M.. and was also a member of the Pennsylvania, Oerman Society. As Mayor of H&rrisburg, Mr. Eby originated the Major's Quick Charity Fund as a permanent project. Pre- 1 vious to his administration, the fund was taken up only during the winter. Later Mr. Eby was one of the men who brought about the organization of Associated Charities.
