THURSDAY EVENING, JULY Itt MOTORING AND COMMON SF.NSE DURING the last month automo bile emash-ups have been oc curring In this vicinity with alarming frequency. Early Sun day morning one man was killed and another, perhaps, fatally injured near Annvllle. As a result the driver of one car Is being held by the Lebanon authorities on a charge of man slaughter. This accident and subsequent arrest should be a warning to the numerous "speed fools" who race anil tear on the roads of this and neighboring counties. Few. If any, self-respecting automobile owners will jeopardize themselves and the lives of others merely for the sake of "burning up" the roads, and nearly every motor club in the State frowns upon violations of the speed and traffic laws. Township, city and borough authori ties should double their efforts to pre vent such violations, especially during the summer motoring season, when the roads are crowded with vehicles that are at the mercy of the speed fiends. Getting bark those stolen New Haven millions will be like trying to get spilled milk back Into a pitcher. DR. BRUMBAUGH APPRECIATED IT is an old saying that "a prophet is not without honor save in his own country." Dr. Martin G. Brumbaugh Is an exception to this rule. How greatly his services as head of the school system of Philadelphia are appreciated is shown by the ac tion of the board of education of that city in declining to permit him to re sign following his nomination as Re publican candidate for Governor of the State. Dr. Brumbaugh, as the result of the very recent death of his wife, has gone to a secluded spot in Maine for the summer and he feit that he should retire from active participation in school affairs, since he planned to re main out of the city until the activities of the campaign demand his presence in September. But the school board held that it ought to retain his serv ices even if only in an advisory capac ity to the last possible minute, and the tribute of withholding action on Dr. Brumbaugh's resignation is all the greater when it is considered that the motion to lay the matter on the table was made by no less a personage than John Wanamaker, who was at one time a candidate for United States Senator against Boies Penrose and ■whose independence in politics is well known. But the people of Philadelphia must come to an early understanding of the fact that Dr. Brumbaugh will be able to hold his office as superintendent of schools only a short time longer at best. His election to the governorship Is as certain as anything can be. The primary results themselves plainly in dicate this to all but the wilfully blind, whose painful efforts to make figures He are as silly as they are stupid. An analysis of the Brumbaugh vote was published by the Telegraph some weeks ago. Dr. Brumbaugh carried every county in the State against his three Republican opponents, Cauffiel, Ritter and W r ood. He outran McCor mick in the primaries more than 2 to 1, Ryan nearly 3 to 1, Lewis more than 8 to 1, and Brumm more than 13 to 1. Senator Penrose lost thirteen counties to J. Benjamin Dlmmlck, his single opponent, while Dr. Brum baugh, with three opponents, carried every county that Dimmick carried. Brumbaugh had 6,24 8 votes in Lacka wanna, Dimmick's home county, while Penrose polled 3,055 there. It would seem only fair to add to the 253,788 votes received by Dr. Brumbaugh the 66,308 cast for the other Republican candidates, which would make the total Republican strength 320.097 against the 261,324 received by all the other candidates on all the other tickets. In the last gubernatorial campaign 995,448 votes were cast, of which Tener received 415,614. This year there was a Re publican enrollment of more than 600,000. About 300,000 of that num- THURSDAY EVENING, fiARRISBURG TELEGRAPH JULY 16, 1914 bcr did not vote. If two-thirds of that ( number vote in addition to those who went to the primaries. Dr. Brumbaugh will have a clear majority over all opponents in November and the larg est vote ever polled for Governor. Leaving out of consideration both Philadelphia and- Allegheny counties, Dr. Brumbaugh carried the State as against McCormick's total vote in tho i whole State. Without those two big centers of population Brumbaugh had 119,523 votes while McCormick had only 110,562, including the 12,217 cast for him in Philadelphia and Pitts burgh. Dr. Brumbaugh in Philadelphia re ceived 87,075, as against 46,854 for all the others who were running on all tickets. This gives Dr. Brum baugh a clear majority over all oppo nents of 41,221, which means practi cally that for every vote cast for any one else two were cast for the Repub lican nominee. And in Allegheny, the other big center of population in the State, the situation was equally inter esting. There Dr. Brumbaugh re ceived 47,180 votes, which was 14,- I 117 more than the 33,063 cast for all other candidates in and out of the Republican party. These figures show pretty clearly not only that Dr. Brumbaugh is ap preciated at home but that his worth is well known to the people of the State at large. The road repair money will go Just about one-half as far now as it would have last Spring before the highways got into such bad condition. SANK SI MMER STYLES MEMBERS of the Harrisburg police force should give thanks that they are commanded by a chief of police so sane as Colonel Joseph B. Hutchison has proved himself in allowing the officers to remove their heavy coats and wear shirt waists during the hot summer days. If only convention were half so sane! Then instead of being hot and sticky beneath useless coats, not only the lucky patrolmen, but every one of us could walk out Market street of a Sunday afternoon, letting the breezes hit us right on the shirt fronts. Coats in summertime are never worn be cause men want to wear them, but simply because style so decrees. The voting element of this fair city pooh poohs woman for her fear of offending fashion when they really ought to be pooh-poohing themselves. Women may wear slit skirts and peekaboos, but, after all, aren't these things saner, healthier and worlds more comfort able than stiff collars, coats and hats that never let a particle of air to the body or the hair? So, again we say, let the city police force give thanks! A New York physician driving his car through the country was attacked by bumblebees. He may take conso lation from the Tact that he Is not the only automobilist that has been stung. BLEASE AND MOB LAW IN South Carolina has occurred the thing that might have been expect ed under the administration of Gov ernor Blease —a negro woman was lynched by a crowd of men after being arrested on suspicion of having beaten a white child. According to the news dispatches, the woman was hung to a tree after being disrobed and her body was filled with bullets. Hundreds of people stood by and did absolutely nothing to prevent the outrage. But what more could be expected in a State where the Chief Executive has declared he will not interefere with lynchlngs! Under such conditions the mob spirit naturally will be asserted at the least provocation. However, if report be true, the law-abiding ele ment of the State, disgusted with the actions of Blease, will show when the next election is held that they will not tolerate protected crime. A. Mitchell Palmer, the Democratic boss of Pennsylvania, will hesitate be fore he again raises his voice in Con gress against his associates who don't happen to agree with him. "He had better remove the beam from his own eye before he tries to take the mote out of the eyes of others" was the parting shot of Representative Mann, the Re publican leader, who also said some thing about those who live in glass houses. LICENSING ARCHITECTS HARRISBURG architects, along with many others of the State, will urge the State Legislature to pass a law providing for licensed architects. Buildings are planned, say the archi tects, by men who really shouldn't be entrusted with the plans for a hog pen. They say the State requires doc tors, lawyers, dentists, veterinarians and so on to pass rigid examinations before they can begin the practice of their profession, so why not examine the men who plan our sleeping, eating and living rooms? Safety and health n.ay be conserved or endangered by the ability or lack of It with which the architect designs the buildings in which we perforce must spend so much of our time. On the face of it, the demand doesn't seem Illogical. Now that the hands of Highway Com missioner Bigelow have been untied, may we not expect that every impor tant highway leading to the capital city of the Commonwealth will be made first class In every respect. And now comes the army worm! Here's the State Zoologist's opportunity. AX EVENING THOUGHT Oh beautiful for patriots' dream Which sees beyond the years. Thine alabaster cities gleam Undlmmed by human tears. America! America! God shed His grace on thine; And crown thy good with brother hood From sea to shining sea! •—Katharine Lee Bates. 1 1 EVENING CHAT 1 Resumption of maintenance work on the highways of the State after a lapse of more than a year because of a question between fiscal and highway officials over the phraseology of a legislative act means much to Harris burg. The plans of Commissioner Bigelow call for the repair of high ways all over the state and most trav eled highways, which happen to be about the worst in condition in many instances, lead in numerous ways to Harrisburg. It is safe to say that the placing of the roads in proper con dition will bring hundreds, probably thousands, more automobilists to this city to see the Capitol and may attract to the scenic and historic regions of the Keystone State some of the many travelers from western states who go to New England by way of the Empire State because Pennsylvania highways are not rated as high as its industries. Early as is the season for cross-country trips, there has been a noticeable fall ing off of visitors to the city from other states and from other counties to see the Capitol. The much-discussed roads which radiate from Harrisburg like the spokes of a wheel, connecting directly with the main highways of more than half the counties in the central section of the state and ultimately with every other state highway, are in any thing but good condition. Within a week or so the forces of the State High way Department will probably have wrought wonders with the roads and they will be in fair condition for travel, although the lack of attention brought on by the refusal to pay over the auto mobile money has probably had seri ous effect in some regions. Inasmuch as the State is now about to fix up the roads leading to the gates of Harris burg, It behooves the city to do its share by bettering the streets connect ing with the state highways. Derr.v street, beyond Twenty-third, and Greenwood, which is used for several blocks while the paving is under way, are in bad condition. The state of Greenwood street, which Is traveled as a detour, is simply frightful . Auto mobiles have to plough through mud and unless machines have chains they are apt to.slide. Many complaints are heard about it. Incidentally, Susque hanna township might fix up the ends of State and Walnut streets and some attention to Cameron and Herr streets on the part of the city would be worth while. It is probable that before very long the State authorities will take some steps to brighten up the paintings now in the State Museum. These paintings, which are little known to the average person on Capitol Hill, let alone the casual visitor, are In the big room in the Museum which formerly housed the battle flags now in the rotunda of the Capitol. Owing to the huge flag cases they were seldom seen to advan tage and some of them are well worth study. The great painting of the breaking of the charge of Pickett's division at Gettysburg by Rothermel is the largest in the collection and can be seen better from the gallery than from the floor. Around the room are paintings of noted generals, battle scenes and the like, some of the paint ings shown at expositions being also there. These paintings are in some cases badly in need of restoration. The Pittsburgh Gazette-Times last week fairly outdid its special editions with one issued in commemoration of the real estate men's convention. It presented facts about Pittsburgh's in dustrial supremacy and its wealth in succinct form and gave Information about real estate in the city and its crown of boroughs that even the busv Plttshurgher did not know. One of the best features was a daily series ot cartoons of active men of the conven tion. with some witticisms about each appended. Dr. Daniel Z. DuNott. the Western Maryland surgeon, who was here the other day for a conference at the Capi tol, is a former Harrishurger, the son of Dr. Thomas C. DuNott, one of the eminent physicians and surgeons of this city thirty years ago. Dr. DuNott now resides in Raltimore and is chief surgeon of the big railroad. Those reports about Southern rail roads where they gave out passes by the bale brings to mind how such fa vors used to be handled In. this city. Harrisburg being the State capital naturally figured a good bit in such matters and the legislative sessions, the conventions and various meetings here always brought many into the city "dead head." One time a Phila delphlan had more passes than he could use and brought them here with him. Next day at least thirty Harrlsburgers made trips to Philadel phia and paid their way home just to use up the passes. What happen ed to the other end of the transpor tation the railroad people were never able to find out. It's rather amusing to watch the way people stream off trains at Union Station for "coolers." A "cooler,," ac cording to the railroad station men, is a soda fountain drink, no matter what flavor, hut just something that cannot be bought on a car. Every through train that hesitates here for five min utes has a flock of men who bounce off and ask the nearest place to get a "cooler" and whether they will have time. The result has been a rush for the soda fountain at the station, and Its proximity has kept a good many from running to hotels. WELL KNOWN PEOPLE —Thomas G. Vincent, the new post master of Danville, is well known to many Harrisburgers. He was formerly prothonotary and a delegate to the Denver convention. —Dr. B. A.

DEMOCRATS HOI U FUSION Morris Finds That Many Do Not Favor the Alliance With the Bull Moosers • | OLD LINERS GETTING MAD York County Democrats Angered Over Post Office—Secretary at the Windmill State Chairman Roland S. Morris' secret conferences with Democratic State committeemen, county chairmen and leaders in hotels anS offices about the city yesterday afternoon and last night developed the fact that senti ment, even among Democrats who bow to the bosses In pretty nearly every thing, is by no means in favor of fusing with the Washington party on the basis of the Bull Moosers accepting McCormick and letting the Progress ives take all the rest. Including Con gressmen-at-large. There is fear of arousing the old line, thick and thin Democrats, who prefer a straight ticket because of Roosevelt's attacks on President Wilson Instead of a donko-moose for the sake of giving McCormick an Improvement in his chances. Several of the men who talked to Morris appeared to have an Idea that there was somebody to elect beside McCormick, and there appeared to be considerable opinion among the lead ers that McCormick with his financial resources could look after his cam paign and that obstacles should not be thrown In the way of congressional and legislative campaigns. Incident ally, it developed that while Palmer might be willing to retire In favor of Pinchot In consideration of a job at Washington, and Creasy might be will ing to avoid a licking for the sake of future support from McCormick, there is doubt whether McNair would re tire, and at least two of the nominees for Congress-at-large will decline to surrender to the Bull Moose to help out McCormick. Despite Palmer's denials, It Is be lieved that he has been In touch with some of the Bull Moosers. Palmer knows he cannot win and wants to help McCormick, who thinks he can. The conferences held yesterday were in secret and so welded have the cogs In the State machine become to the policy of silence in place of the open door Secrecy that Morris declined to the New give the names of the men Policy who were here. 'He in- sisted that the confer ences -were on district campaign affairs only, and denied that fusion was even mentioned or that any proposition was under way, not withstanding widespread publicity in the matter. It is known that post office squabbles were discussed, and that outside of the conferences the Democrats were sounded as to their views on fusion. There were here James I. Blakslee, Fourth Assistant Postmaster General; C. R. Kurtz, sur veyor of the port; John T. Matt, who Is in the revenue service; Arthur Mc- Kean, Beaver boss; C. R. Geesey, of York, who did not get the post office, and others. The Philadelphia Palmer-McCor mick League got into immediate ac tion yesterday. It was not twenty four hours old before Pal mer was around to give it aid and encouragement. It Palmer was stated that the league Boosts would not antagonize the League regular city committee, but the truth is that it is to be an unofficial city committee, that being the machine way of getting around having anything to do with a committee composed of men elected by the peoplp. To make the illusion better the leaguers asked Old Guards men to join knowing they would not. Wilkes-Barre is being strongly boomed for the meeting of the Re publican league of clubs which Is scheduled to take place in the latter part of Wilkes-liarre September. The Lu- Will Get the zerne county peo p1 e Clubs' Meet are urging the claims of the city and It is expected that the exe cutive committee, which will meet in Pittsburgh when the State committee meets will select it. Fred W. Wil lard, of Philadelphia, is president and has been conferring with representa tive Republicans regarding plans for the meeting. The Harrisburg, West End and East End Republican Clubs will send representatives from this city. The State candidates will speak at the club meeting. A dispatch from York regarding Democratic politics ln that erstwhile stronghold of Democracy says: "Ed ward C. Peeling will be York's new postmas- ter. He heads the re- York Again organised Democracy Faction Torn of this county, and Over Jobs his faction gained the upper hand at the re- cent meeting of the county committee when the Peeling candidate for county chairman was elected. The old stand pat faction of the party is headed by Lemon Love and John W. Heller, and they have been making things Inter esting for all the Democrats for some time past. They tried to defeat An drew R. Brodbeck for a renomination as congressman, and although they failed, they threw a good scare into the reorganlzers. Then they sought to capture the county chairmanship and wanted John Throne elected, urging as one of their claims that Brodbeck had not been able to have a postmas ter appointed for York. But here again the Love-Heller men were de feated, but not dismayed." The meeting of the chairmen of the new Fourth division of the Demo cratic State committee which is be ing held at the coun try home of Division All Divisions Boss H. B. McCormick to Be Looked to-day in the first of at by Morris a series to be attended by State Boss Roland S. Morris. Mr. Morris plans to make visits to almost every county and vill attend meetings of the division. The Fourth division is the first of the divisions to hold a meeting since the new arrangement was made by the State committee, and it is composed of Dauphin, Cumber land, Lebanon, Berks and Lehigh. The meeting of the division was attended by a number of prominent Democrats of those counties and plans for active and early campaign work were dis cussed. Vance C. McCormick, the Democratic nominee for governor, is taking things easy now as he plans to begin tours In August. The regular campaign tour will start In September, but during August be has a number of speaking dates. ( OUR DAILY ) V.nally the Ca»e Waj.n l Pop Mean? He Do you .. enjoy the swells?

Pleasant and a lot of other places. The campaign starts soon. —Pinchot and Lewis continue to campaign and spend money despite fusion rumors. —Dean Lewis would make a rather singular sacrificial lamb. —McCormick would not care If the platforms of the Democrats and Pro gressives jarred on the Wilson policies as long as he was endorsed. —Palmer Is kicking about Penrose holding up post office appointments. Pinchot and Lewis are in Colum bia and Montour to-day. —Secrecy ought to have been adopt ed before the $33,000 kampaign kitty came around.

WEATHER SUPERSTITIONS [Philadelphia Public Ledger.] There Is nothing more annoying to science to-day than the tyranny of sayings that come down from an un critical and ignorant past. While chemistry has destroyed the delusions •of alchemy and astronomy has upset the of astrology, it is unfortunate that meteorology has not yet, ln the minds of many people, com pletely routed the rule-of-thumh folk lore on the subject of the weather. The St. Swithln's saying is a case in point: Gif it do rain Selnt Swithin's Day, For forty days ye rain will stay; But gif ther drop nae rain at all For forty days nae rain will fall. There is nothing ln this saying; it has not even the merit of some of the observations of farmers and seafaring men on weather phenomena, which are often correct as to facts observed, but wrong as to the reasons. Indeed, the trouble with the St. Swithln's say ing is that it belongs to that class of proverbs which are absolutely without any basis of experience. The weather on no one given day, cool or hot, wet or dry, indicates or determines the weather for forty days to come or for a season. The only value the weather of any given day has, in the matter of forecasting more than twenty-four hours In advance, Is that It may Indicate a tendency and show that the seasonal weather is ad hering to a certain type. That Is, a rainy day may be part and parcel of a series of rainy days, which, in turn, are indicative of a wet year. Other than this, these sayings are worthy of no credence, and, indeed, obscure what science really knows con cerning weather changes and the causes thereof. MORE PALMER BLUNDERING [Philadelphia Inquirer] The chorus of dissent that went up from the rank and file of the Demo crats In this city over the selections for the chief federal offices in this section of the State is not to be com pared to the cries of anguish that are being emitted over the appointment of W.
