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."

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
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
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
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
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,
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

Activities of Hound Catcher Bring
Many Owners to
Being city dogcatcher isn't merely
or. easy money-making Job of kicking
someone else's dog around; the dog is
also having his day.
And where the dog itself doesn't

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

dogs had been registered.

much of the dogcatcher as a gentle
man and a scholar express themselves
in various ways at police headquar

that all the complaints were without
