I.ICII.LK LOVE AT THE PALACE
The sixth of the "Lucille" pictures,
Hugo Boiibeuue, international spy, has
stolen certain documents from General
Sumptcr Love—to be used in ruining
the General. To save her father's
honor, Lucille Love, the General's
daughter, undertakes to regain posses
sion of the documents single-handed.
After a series of thrilling chases over
land and sea, and after she has regain
ed the papers, Lucille Is picked up from
one of the South Sea islands by a sail
ing vessel. Little does she realized,
however, that the vessel is owned by I
her enemy, Hugo Loubeque, and that
he is aboard the same boat.
As soon as Louheciuc discovers that
Lucille is aboard the boat with the
coveted documents, he disguises as a
Chinese mandarin to further his plans
in regaining the papers. Lucille is im
pressed by two members of the crew,
the captain, who is not long in showing
her that he has evil designs upon her,
and the first mate, with whom she
makes friends. One night the captain
attacks Lucille, and she is only saved
from his burtallty by the timely inter
ference of Loubeque. Knowing that
the papers must be valuable, the cap
tain steals them from Luci lie's cabin
Again the captain attacks her. This
time the girl draws a revolver, forces
the captain to the deck and shows him
up to the crew as a coward. By this
time there Is a general feeling of un
rest among the members of the crew,
who divide and carry on an armed
mutiny. A few cast their lot with
Lucille and the rest with the raptain.
A tierce battle between contending'
forces is then waged upon the deck of
the ship. At a critical moment
Loubeque comes unexpectedly to the
girl's aid and only for an instant be
cause in the thick of the fray a battle
ship is sighted.
Realizing that the boat Is carrying
contraband arms to China and that cap
ture will mean imprisonment, those of
the crey who were Lucilie's friends turn i
against her and poin the captain. Again
in comand the captain has Loubeque
thrown overboard and Lucille Is placed
in a row boat witli a jug of water and
cast adrift upon the South Seas. When
she has drifted some distance from the
ship, she rescues l-ioubeque. in the
small boat there is but suftleient water
to last a few days. Loubeque, however
shows the greatest consideration for the
helpless girl and when the chill of
night comes on he covers her with his
own coat.
They are alone, adrift upon the South
Seas and neither has the documents,
the quest of which has caused them to
lace so many dangers.—Advertisement.

■HUSH. MISS TO
LEAVE SITE MOTEL
During His Career He Has Served
Some of Country's Greatest
Men
With the retirement this month of
James H. Russ, Senate Hotel proprie
tor, there will pass from the active
life of Harrisburg a man whose name
is known throughout two continents as
a synonym of gastronomic felicity.
During his career as a hotelman In
Harrisburg, Mr. Russ has served some
of the most distinguished statesmen
of this and other countries, and he
has been caterer to many a banquet
where gathered the wits and history
makers of one and two generations
ago.
Mr. Russ will retire soon—Just how
soon depends upon the consumma
tion of a deal that is now pending.
Upon the rumor of this change spread
ing through the city yesterday the
hotel was besieged with inquiries, but
nothing definite has been decided upon
as yet except that Mr. Russ is to re
tire for the second time. Not many
know about his first "retirement,''
which didn't last long, and which was
the only break in a long career in
which he figures ever as the genial
landlord, and, with Mrs. Russ' assist
ance, as purveyor of cookery par ex
cellence. It was shortly after he left
the old Leland Hotel, where he set up
at the instance of his warm personal
friend, Simon Cameron, that he and
Mrs. Russ for a time lived privately,
but the lure of the game was too
strong, and when he was asked to as
sume charge of the Commonwealth
annex he returned to active life.
For forty years James Russ has been
identified with one or another of the
hotels of Harrisburg. In his early
manhood he acquired the old Harris
House and fro mthere removed to a
hotel on the site of the Post Office
when it was in Market street, after
ward the Grand Hotel.
His biggest enterprise was the Com
monwealth Hot6l, which he conducted
until he acquired the Senate property,
which he ran for a time under the
name of the Commonwealth annex,
after the owners of the Commonwealth
Hotel property had refused longer to
allow liquor to be sold on the prem
ises. Later Mr. Russ built the present
Senate Hotel.
For the past two years Mr. Russ has
not been in extremely good health, and
a fall that he sustained a Tew weeks
ago while trying to fix a fan in the
basement, gave him a severe shock
and hastened his decision to retire.
Catholics Vote to
Boycott Great Fair
New York, June B.—At the third
annual reunion and reception of the
Catholic Laymen's League for Retreats
and Social Studies at Mount Manresa,
Fort Wadsworth, S. 1., this afternoon,
a resolution, in which the Catholics
present expressed their intention of
boycotting the Panama-Pacific Expo
sition, was passed unanimously.
J. y. Judge, a vice-president of the
league, said: "Every nation has been
invited to send a representative to the
exposition and Italy has selected as its
representative Ernesto Nathan, who
has become notorious through the
affronts he has offered the holy father,
both in private capacity and as mayor
of Rome. This was done as a direct
insult to the Catholics of America."
L'AXTANG HAS UNUSUALLY
GOOD in: VI)MM: it THIS WEEK
The vaudeville show at Paxtang
Park, this week, offers an unusual
headliner in Palfrey, Barton and
Brown, who present an act entitled
"The Follies of Vaudeville." In their
fifteen-minute offering this trio does
what might be termed a burlesque on
vaudeville, in the course of which they
sing, dance, do trick bicycle riding and
acrobatic stunts. Palfrey, Barton and
Brown are one of the highest salaried
acts that has ever played the park, and
the Indications are that it will be one
of the best. Other acts on the park
bill for the week will be: Addington
and Frank, two younk ladies, who in
troduce the Diana of physical culture
and the street singer; Bounding John
son, the king of tht hounding wire;
Warren and Ardizona, singers of comic
songs, and the Appleby Novelty Musical
Troup, banjo and guitar specialists.
To-night will be ladles' night at the
park, all ladies being admitted to the
theater free.—Advertisement.

of Lebanon, who sat with Judge
McCarrell in the hearing of the case,
concurs in the opinion.
Two actions are decided by the
opinion tiled to-day. In one the Audi
tor General and State Treasurer are
directed to draw warrants and pay a
requisition made by Highway Com
missioner Bigelow on the accumula
tions from automobile licenses, which
when the suits were brought aggre
gated three quarters of a million dol
lars and which now amounts to over a
million Jn the other an action is
brought against the Auditor General
separately. The court overrules mo
tions to quash and permits amendment
by Attorney General of the prayer.
Judge McCarrell tiles a voluminous
decision, inwliirh there are many ci
tations. He says in part: "The act of
July 7, 1913, undoubtedly appropriat
ed the registration and license fees
to the State Highway Department, di
recting that they shall be deposited
in the State Treasury for safe keeping
and shull be paid out upon requisi
tion from time to time of the State
Highway Commissioner" In regard
to the specific appropriation act, ap
proved May 11, 190!). which the fiscal
officers contended prevented payment
of the money without a specific appro
priation by the Legislature, the court
says: "If there be any conflict be
tween this statute and the act of
IJuly 7. 1913, it is sufficient to say that
| the provisions of the later statute
must control"
In closing the court says, "After
'careful consideration we are satisfied
I that the act of July 7, 1913, is valid
legislation, that its tenth section speci
fically appropriates the moneys de
rived from registration and licenses to
the State Highway Department, and
that these moneys have been paid in
to the State Treasury for safe keeping
until required by the State Highway
Commissioner for the use for which
they were thus appropriated."
PI.KADS GUII,TY
C. O. Irwin, formerly an engineer of
the State Highway Department, em
ployed at Hollidaysburg, was arraigned
before Judge McCarrell ,at June Quar
ter Sessions, charged with obtaining
an overcoat and a suitcase by false pre
tense. He gave the Hub Clothing House
worthless checks. Irwin pleaded guilty.
Disposition of his case was laid over
| until Monday.

RIVER DIM Will BE
FINISHED BY OCT. 1
[Continued from First Page.]
tention, as this is one of the costliest
and most dangerous parts of the job.
An Engineering Problem
On the eastern side of the island the
contractors last summer met with a
stretch of river bed in which no rock
foundation could be reached. In some
instances a depth of ten feet was nec
essary, in others a greater depth was
tried out. But in the sixty-foot stretch
the excavations were deeper and an
extra depth of ten feet was attempt
ed with steel rods. No rock was touch
ed however, and the engineers of the
Board of Public Works overnight drew
up a substitute for rock foundation
that marked the most remarkable en
gineering problem of the job The
base was "floated" on a concrete
foundation constructed for the pur
pose on the mud bottom instead of be
ing fastened to the river bed with steel
rods.
Rivermen were dubious as to
whether or not the "floating" base
would withstand the rush of Ice and
water during the winter's high stages;
It not only held as solidly as any oth
er portion of the clam, but as one of
the engineers put it, "it will hold as
long as any other part of the dam."
The River's Height
With the exception of a few hun
dred feet of slab-work the dam will
very likely be completed before the
cold weather sets in, although the gaps
cannot be closed entirely because It
might mean a rise of the water on the
river wall sufficient to interfere with
the work These slabs will likely be
placed by the engineers of the board.
Canoeists, rivermen and others who
have watched the course of the dam's
construction have raised the question
as to whether the height of the wa
ter will be maintained because of the
openings in the breastwork. A sec
tion close to the wall on the east side
will be left open and another section
for a ttshway will be allowed on the
island. At that, however, the water
will be four feet above low water mark
at the dam when the river is at its
lowest known stage, and will gradually
back to normal level at Maclay street.
At the Dlntaman boat landing for In
stance the river stage at low water
will be from twelve to eighteen inches
high. And at that there will be a
thin inch or inch and a half stream
of water passing over the dam all the
way across the river.
Preparations for concreting the
walk on the river wall from Iron alley
north, were made to-day by Stucker
Brothers' Construction Company and
before the end of the week that part
of the job will be well under way. The
"till" over the bank from the Front
street subway will not interfere with
the work. More "fill" is being placed
above the pumping station while ex
cavations for "stringers" are being
built above Oalder street. The frame
forms have been put in position there.
Paxton Creek will be improved, it
is expected, before the end of the
summer. The concreting has been
completed from the creek mouth tol
Sycamore street and from Market
street to a few hundred feet south
of State Excavation from that point
to the concrete work at Reily street U
under way. The city treasurer to-day
paid the creek contractors $2,402.54
ai! an estimate on the job.
Chambersburg Motorists
Will Check in Here
The Chambersburg Motor Club will
make the first tie "run off" to-mor
row. From ten to thirteen cars will
be in the run. One of the checking
controls will be Market Square, Har
risburg. The cars will come in from
Lancaster at approximately 2:66 p. m.
and each other of the cars will fol
low approximately every three min
utes. All cars will be required to stay
in Harrisburg just one hour providing
they cheek in on time. The original
run which was held on May 28, 29
and 30, consisted of twenty-five cars,
the route being over the National pike
