TMTEMENI UNTIL AUGUST 1 City Tax Collector Says He's Send ing Out Notices as Matter of Courtesy Clerks in the ofTicce of the City! Treasury are working overtime these ■davs handling the rush of citizens who ate eager to take advantage of the 1 per cent, abatement on taxes. Up until two years ago July 1 was the time allowed upon which the 1 per cent, abatement was obtainable on city '■ taxes. Last year and this year, how- j ever, the time had been advanced one month so that any citizen can have the advantage of the abatement if he squares his bill before August 1. How- i ever, a lot of folks still believe the July 1 time limit still holds and usually there is quite a rush to the City Treas urer's office at this time of year. Some peope have complained at not receiving their tax statements in suffi cient time before July 1 to take advan- j tage of the abatement provided the > July 1 date still held. In discussing I this to-day Captain O. M. Copelln, the j City Treasurer, said: "We are not required to send out the city tax statements and we only • do it as a matter of courtesy. It hap- J pened that this year we did not get i out as many as last year and it is j possible that some of the complaints ( were from the folks who didn't get j theirs yet. To date I should say that we have sent out from 2,500 to 3.000 end we're sending them out still just I as fast as we can do so. However, for two weeks we have advertised the fact that the taxes are due. Furthermore, j 3 supposed it was generally known that the 1 per cent, abatement holds j good until August 1." COUNSEL SFFI SHE ILL BE MSED [Continued From First Page] to so confuse the State's witnesses on cross-examination as to force the cor- ' oner to release Mrs. Carman. If he; succeeds, friends of the accused woman believe that the case will never' reach the grand jury, which convenes et Mineola on Tuesday next. But it i Is regarded as scarcely likely that Mr.! Norton, sitting as a justice of the; peace, will turn Mrs. Carman loose ! after hearing the same evidence upon which he. sitting as coroner, ordered | her arrest. Thi- grand jury, which District At-: tornev Smith will ask to indict Mrs. Carman on a charge of murder in the first degree, is made up of farmers,; merchants, buildings contractors, real estate agents and several wealthy | residents of Nassau county.

Mineola, L. 1., July 10. —Mrs. Flor- j «nce Conklin Carman, locked up in , the Nassau county jail here as the assassin of Mrs. Louise Bailey, seemed to have recovered to-day from the nervous collapse she had yester day and sat quietly in her cell read ing books furnished by the warden's wife. She received a letter to-day from her 12-year-old daughter, Eliza beth, who testified at the last session of the inquest in an effort to strengthen an alibi for her mother. The letter read: "Dear Mamma: We all think of you always. I don't quite know why you can't come home. If I don't see you very soon I'll write and ask Mr. Pettit (the sheriff) why you do not come home. "Your loving daughter, "Elizabeth." Both the district attorney and George Levy, counsel for Mrs. Car man. were to-day preparing evidence to be presented in Freeport Monday when Mrs. Carman will be arraigned for examination.

They entered the American | Express Company car and forced the| messenger, J. G. Nicholson .to stand | with his face to the wall while they ! blew both doors from the safe. While this was going ot., a track walker, said to be William Christo pher appeared. The robbers made him prisoner. When the train first stopped at the | command of the bandits. Conductor! Mudd and William Glass, train audi-< tor, got off to learn the trouble. i Greeted by Shots "We were greeted with a fusillade | of shots," said Mudd. "We were told ' to stay in the coaches.

So far as known nothing was j taken except the contests of the ex-i press safe. What this amounted to! is not yet known. Conductor Mudd J said he saw seve al pieces of jewelry valued at SI,OOO on the floor of the express car after the robbery. The bandits are thought to have crossed the Missouri river near the' scene of the robbery and to have start- j ed south. By Associated Press St. Louis. Mo.. July 10. —Nahum j T. Brown, general agent here of the 1 American Express company, said there was no shipment of money the express safe, but that there were a few package? of jewelry, the value j of which he would not estimate. The first news of the robbery was j given by the flagman of the "flyer." j Despite warnings of the bandits, he got off the rear passenger coach and | ran back to Matson. where he notified ! the station agent that the train had i been held up.

He said he was told by the train crew that the bandits ; carried off a sack of silver weighing fifty pounds and a pouch of railroad mall. Commission Rules Regarding Rights of Corporations The petition of the Pennsylvania Utilities company, which sought to prevent the Lehigh Navigation Elec-1 trie company from invading its ter- j ritory in certain parts of Monroe and ; Northampton counties, was dismissed j to-day in an opinion handed down by .the Public Service Commission. The Lehigh Navigation Electric j company was chartered prior to the j passage of the act creating the com- j mission, and the opinion declares that j if an electric light company cannot i enter upon the territory in which it j ; has been granted power by the Leg -1 islature to exercise its franchises and ! privileges, it can do nothing. The opinion says that when a pub- : lie service company, acting within! the rights granted by its charter, un- ! | dertakes to make a contract with a \ j municipality, the subject matter of j i the contract is still within the con- j | trol of the commission. This sub i stantially means that the respondent ; company cannot be prevented from entering the territory to which Its franchises apply and supplying lndl | viduals within that territory, but that , if it undertakes to supply munlcipali ties it will have to obtain the consent j of the commission.

Harrisburg School Sketches BY J. HOWARD WERT No. 3. Public schools conducted in tlio German language, the erec tion of the Stevens building. The Harirxburg School Board at length obtains a permanent home. The many uses to which the large hall room of the Stevens building has been applied. In 1874, the teachers at the school building at Chestnut and Dewberry streets were Mrs. Carrie Sees and Miss Jennie E. Dase, both of whom, after years of faithful educational service, are still residents of our city. The third small school building of this vicinity (known as the German building) was more fortunate than the Front street and Chestnut street build ings in becoming a permanent educa tional site. Its location was 123 Chestnut street, being the original German homestead. Harrisburg. in its earlier days, was well supplied with the olden-time breweries, and one of the best known of these was the Ger man brewery located In the rear of the dwelling and facing in Cherry street. When the Harrisburg school board acquired the German property, two schools were located In two rooms of the dwelling house, the teachers in 1874 being Misses Jenny E. Lenny and Lizzie F. Jauss. Miss Jauss is still a teacher in the Stevens building on the very spot where stood the Ger man house, whilst there are hundreds of men and women in Harrisburg,— aye, and widely scattered too through many other communities —willing to bear ready testimony to her devoted services In their earlier days. Schools In the German language But the three small buildings which have been mentioned were not the only isolated schools in that section of Ihe city. Schools were located In rented rooms in the German Lutheran church in South Second street, which has been razed in recent years to make way for Pennsylvania railroad im provements, and also in Odd Fellows' hall. 304 North Second street. The school in the Lutheran church was devoted to the Instruction of pu pils desiring to receive their education in the German language, there being also another German school in the rented Knipe building in Verbeke street. The German schools then con ducted under the auspices of the school board were in deference to the desires of a strong and important Ger man element in the population of Harrisburg. The teachers in the school located In the Lutheran church Frederick W. Liesmann, the well known proprietor and publisher of "The Pennsylvania Staats—Zeitung and Dauphin County Journal,' and Miss Kate A. Troup. The school in Odd Fellows' hall was taught by Miss Kate Stambaugh. This accomplished teacher, now Mrs. Piper, is again connected with Harrisburg's educational work. The Erection of the Stevens Building When the sentiment in Harrisburg In favor of better school buildings and a greater concentration of educational effort had reached flood tide, in the seventies of the last century, the Har risburg board determined to erect an edifice near the center of the city which would accommodate the pupils of the numerous small schools and rented rooms of that section. The German property in Chestnut street was deemed the most available site at its command, but the space being insufficient for the structure contem plated, the Jones Wister Residence ad joining on the west was also pur chased. It also entered Into the plans of j the board to provide In this building for better quarters for its meetings j and a suitable office for the city su- | perintendent of schools. His office had been located at various places. In 1874 it was in an Inadequate room i in College block, as the building with j an entrance at 28 North Third street | was generally called at that time. The following year it was in an equally insufficient room in Market Square. The school board held its meetings as best it could, in the office of the superintendent wherever that might be. The City Institutes The new building in Chestnut street was erected in 1876, the centennial year of American independence, ante dating the new building at Harris Park by one year. Bark of the capacious offices for the superintendent and secretary of the board was a room for board meet ings, whilst above all was a hall pri marily Intended for the semimonthly sessions of the institute held by the city teachers, which had previously been held in the rooms of the boys' high school located in the DeWitt building (or old Lancasterian) in Walnut street. But with a radical readjustment of the arrangement of the schools in 1886 the boys' high school itself w*as transferred to this hall in the Ste vens building with several adjacent rooms in use for recitation purposes. This transfer was effected after a bit ter fight in the school board in what one of the papers of the city termed a "rich and racy meeting." There is quite a bit of history back of this fight, but this is not the place to tell it. The Dacasterian building had been the location of the hoys' high school for the North ward of Harrisburg, from the time that the common school system became sufficiently developed to have a high school. On the con solidation of the North and South ward districts into one school organi zation, it became the site of the boys' high school for the entire city. The transfer to the Stevens build- j SCENES AT CAMP ON M'CORMICK JSLAND ing was made on the evening of May 18, 1886. Here the school remained until the consolidation of the boys' high school and girls' high school into one institution in the new building erected for high srTiool purposes at the corner of Forster and Capital streets. This occurred September 4, 1893. The large hall room of the Stevens i building, after the consolidation of the high schools, was used, for a time, j for the meetings of the board. But I with the greatly reduced number ofi members incident to the adoption ofj the school code now In force, the: members returned to the board's orig-1 Itial location on the first floor. The hall, beautifully fitted up, is now and has been for some years the ornate and comfortable home of the Harrisburg teachers' training school,! Miss Anne U. Wert, principal. The Harrisburg school board hasj generally shown excellent judgment in the selection of names for Its school buildings, and never was there a hap pier choice than when this capacious edifice in Chestnut street was named after the "Great Commoner" Thad deus Stevens, the especial champion of the grand public school system of our Keystone State. Westinghouse Workers Decide to End Strike Special to The Telegraph Pittsburgh, July 10. Four thousand striking employes of the Westinghouse Companies, in a mass meeting at the Tabernacle, last night, voted unani mously to return to work next Monday morning. This practically proclaims the end of the strike, and was directly due to the ultimatum issued bv the companies yesterday, in which they re fused longer to hold open the positions made vacant by the walkout. The strike leaders, in commenting on the decision of the men to return to work, said that it had been deemed ad visable for several days, because the employes would receive more considera tion from the company if they acted as an organization than if they returned as Individuals. The strike, which has lasted more than five weeks, has been one of the most orderly ever conducted by a body of men and women ranging from 8.000 to 12,000. Even though the State troop ers were called to the scene, there has been little for them to do except patrol duty. RAILROAD GOES TO RECEIVER By Associated Press Marietta, 0., July 10.—The Mariet ta.

And where the dog itself doesn't exact full satisfaction of the dog catcher via teeth or lens It's a safe bet that master or mistress will help make life miserable for the weary official. Thar Catcher William H. I/ayton Is a very busy young man these days goes without saying; a glance at the rush of business he provoked at the dog license bureau speaks for itself. For instance, yesterday 63 licenses were taken out. the biggest day ever. Up until a late hour this afternoon 360 dogs had been registered. But for Mr. Layton life is just one collarless, vicious, swift-running, growl ing, elusive bedeviling dog after an other. And lest he forget that he Is just a cktcher of Innocent, etc.. dogs, folks whose dogs have been snapped up and who accordingly don't think much of the dogcatcher as a gentle man and a scholar express themselves in various ways at police headquar ters. Colonel Joseph B. Hutchison, chief of police, said to-day, however, that all the complaints were without foundation and that Layton was not only doing his duty but doing it well. Here, however, are a few of the com plaints: The fellow hasn't any heart; he took two unregistered dogs from a couple of children. The fellow is in cahoots with the garbage collector —the latter purposely allowing a gate to swing open after his departure with garbage cans, thus offering the dogcatcher a chance to tease an unsuspecttng dog out Into the I alley, where the hard-hearted official | can pick him up and load him Into his wagon. Not that Mr. Layton is complaining. His day's work yesterday netted him $lB. Thomas to Lay Deal For Players Before President Tener By Associated Press Cincinnati, Ohio, July 10. "I have written President Thomas, of the Chi cago National league Club, that I am willing to leave the controversy over the trade of Players Mollwltz and Wll | Hams for Player Derrick to either President Tener or Secretary Heydler, of the National League, with the un derstanding that whatever decision they shall render will be final," said Presi jdent August Herrmann, of the Cincin nati Club, here to-day. When questioned further as to the probable mode of procedure that the case would likely take In case Mr. Thomas would not consent to an ar rangement of this kind, Mr. Herrmann continued: "Then I shall request President Tener to take the matter before the board of j directors of the league. There is no . question in my mind about the deal being a valid one, and unless I hear I from Mr. Thomas soon, I shall take the icase up to the league directors. 1 have I notified President Tener of my offer to Mr. Thomas and likewise of my inten tions should Mr. Thomas refuse." Ml BOYS DROWNED IN SITRRR CREEK George W. Henning and Harry Wertz, of Lebanon, Meet .% 7 Death Near Jonestown Special to The Telegraph Lebanon. Pa.. July 10.—A double drowning accident happened about 6:30 o'clock this morning In the Swatara creek near Jonestown, when two Lebanon boys lost their lives. George W. Henning, 12 years old, son of \V. Irvln Henning, a well-known contractor of this city, and Harry Wertz, 15 years old. son of John Wertz, a puddle helper, went to Weld man's dam on the Swatara yesterday on a short fishing trip. About 6:30 o'clock this morning, while working along a slippery section of the creek bank, young Henning fell into the deep water and his companion, Wertz, went to his rescue with a long pole. He also slipped Into the wa ter and both were drowned before a number of people on the opposite side of the creek could go to the- rescue. A short time after the drowning John Meek recovered the bodies of the two boys by diving into the deep water, and they were brought to their homes in this city in the automobile of Al fred T. Miller, who was at Jonestown at the time. HAlSßlim C. E. CONVENTION [Continued From First Page] Russia, Syria and Egypt.
