BUY AN WILL SPKAK Washington. June 9.—Secretary of State Bryan left Washington early to day for Penington, N. J., where he will deliver a speech before the Pen nington Seminary. He will return to night. HOW HE DOES ACHE! IFrom the Philadelphia Inquirer.] VANCK C. McCORMICK fairly aches to serve the dear people. He says so himself. If he could only be elected Governor how he would stand up for "human rights:" No "middle of the road methods" for him; no "half way measures" would suffice. Reorganize—yes, that's what he would do—reorganize everything. And such economy he would have! Bless us! there would be no money wasted under him. Mr. McCortnlck—millionaire—deems himself fullv competent to run the State on economical methods. Why. hasn't he Just given us all an object lesson In rigid economy? To be sure he has. He wanted the nom ination at the Democratic primaries. He told the people so. He went before them and talk to them and urged his competency upon them. All that he personally spent out of his ample fortune to induce a goodly attendance of them at the polls was $33.000! That was all, save for a few extra dollars and cents over and above the 133,000. There was economy for you! Why, he could have spent twice as much, but refrained. It was necessary to prove that he can be economi cal when he tries. Of course, he will spend much more than $33,000 at the election. It may be $133,000 or even $233,000. Could he be elected, his salary for the entire four years would he onlv $40,000. Thus he is willing to pay much more than he receives to win the Governorship. Could he give a better proof of how much he desires to teach economy of administration to the public? Could he better demonstrate how dread fully he aches to serve the people? PEACE PLANS QF U. S. ID MEXICO ARE NOW BEING DOVE-TAILED Full Conference of Delegates and Mediators Will Be Called in Few Days CARRANZA ANSWERS NOTE Americans Will Learn Attitude of Rebels While Mediators Recess Pv Associated Press Niagara Falls. Ont., June 9.—The mediators to-day submitted to the Mexican delegates the counter-pro posals of the American government for t'.ie pacification of Mexico. The American plan is, with few modifica tions, the same as that which the mediators and Mexican delegates re cently agreed upon and which Gen eral iluerta approved. It provides the method of transferring the executive power in Mexico City from the present regime to a new provisional govern ment which shall in a few months conduct elections for president, vice president and members of congress. No names have been agreed upon between the Mexican or American delegates for the new provisional president or his cabinet. In fact, neither side has yet made its nomi nations. The program of the proceedings is about as follows: Within a (lay or two the Mexican plan and the American plan will have been dovetailed into one and a full conference of all parties will be called. Final approval is not expected im mediately frdm either party, however, as the mediators then will ask the American delegates to begin to ascer tain the attitude of the Constitution alists. This may proceed through the Washington government or in any manner the delegates choose. The mediators will tuke a brief recess in the meantime.

TO SWITCH ON 16 CLUSTER LIGHTS BY END OF THIS WEEK Standards at Intersections in East and West Ends Now Being Installed AS IN BUSINESS DISTRICT Contract For All Ornamental Il lumination Expires on Same Date By the end of the week the new standard cluster lights at hte Intersec tions of J)erry and 13th, Market and Thirteenth, Third and Verbeke and Sixth and Maclay streets, will bo into service by th" Ilarris burg Light and Power Company. Th • sixteen additional standards were provided through ttie efforts of City Commissioner 11. F. Bowman, su perintendent of public safety. The lighting of the ornamental standards will mean the removal of the over head arcs at these points after tha same plan that was adopted for tha commercial district. Incidentally this will mean deduction of four in tha city's total. The sixteen standards were con tracted for on precisely the same terms which governed the installa tions in the business district. Tha contract for all the ornamental street lights expires at the same time, Sep tember 1, 1922; all the standards were obtained at the same figure. For each standard of five clusters the city iaya SBS per year for service—at the rate of sl7 per year per globe. To this is added C 6 a year for nine years to pay for the installation with under ground connections, the ornamental standard, fixtures, street work inci dent to the installation—in fact all expense and equipment connected witll : the work. Tile Lighting Contract In contracting with the city for the ornamental standard lighting the electric light company offered tha standards and equipment, cost of in stallation, etc., for $54 per pole, the sum to be paid in equal instalments of $6 per year for the life of the nine year contract. The ordinance authorizing the in stallation of the sixteen new lights was passed' by council some months ago. Unlike the arc light section of the city's street lighting contract, no reduction is made for the cluster standards.

Fur thermore they were drop stitch, often termed "open work." That Is why the ten dollar bill was so plainly visible. A slit skirt of the latest style was a factor in the display of the neat ankle adornment. Wintry Blasts and Snowstorms in Paris Special to The Telegraph Paris, June 9.—Two and a half!
