RATTRDW RVFJfING, SEPT. 12 BRUMBAUGH AND f/OOAL OPTION ___ ITH a view to capitalizing the A Y J sentiment for loeal option for yy their own purposes, the Dem ocratic bosses are doing every thing within their power to bring to their support the several organizations and associations which are pledged to the local option proposition. They are finding it extremely difficult, how ever, to convince any considerable number of people that Dr. Martin G. Brumbaugh, the Republican candidate for Governor, should be opposed on this issue. His straightforward and open declaration in favor of local op tion, not only in his recent speeches, but in his original primary platform, has convinced all fair-minded citizens of his sincerity on this question. His Democratic rival, who has been making a play for local option sup port, Is using the silly argument that Dr. Brumbaugh, as Governor, could not be for local option because some alleged liquor interests are supporting him. Mr. McCormick doesn't say one word, however, about the liquor in fluence back of him. He is reach ing out in his desperation for support from any and every source and the rum seller is quite as welcome as the advocate of local option or any other proposition. Mr. McCormick also argues that Dr. Brumbaugh, when he says he will sign the local option bill, knows that with certain leaders in the Senate, no such bill will ever reach his desk to be signed. The Democratic candidate doesn't explain how he would compel the Senate, should he be Governor, to pass a local option measure. Of course, he declared In his primary platform that he would change the whole course of procedure in the legislature and make radical changes in the parlia mentary practice and do a lot more impossible things, but it has not been forgotten by the people that the Bal timore platform, which has frequently been declared by McCormick and oth ers as the most remarkable political document ever put forth by a party, has been repudiated In its most im portant planks by the very men who are now telling Pennsylvania voters what they will do in the event of the people giving them the power. Dr. Brumbaugh Is an able, con scientious and patriotic citizen with a record of achievement second to no other In Pennsylvania. It is therefore absurd for McCormick to pretend that he could do more with a Legislature than any Governor who may be elect ed. The Telegraph believes that the lo cal option proposition should he sub mitted to the people by the next Leg islature and it has no doubt whatever that such a measure will have the prompt approval of the Republican candidate for Governor. The fair minded advocates of local option are not going to be stampeded or confus ed by the tricks of the Democimtic bosses who are now in their despera tion striving to mislead those who fa vor the local option principle. Many cf the more Important Re publican newspapers of the State are supporting local option and they ac cept Dr. Rrumbaugh's manly state ments as they would accept the dec larations of any honest and sincere man. • OPEN PRIMARY IN TIIE DISCARD PERHAPS the most serious pro test against the amalgamation of the Democracy and the Pro gressive party in Pennsylvania comes from those honest voters who believed the Washington party represented a body of principles which were endorsed by thousands of their fellow citizens. These voters urged in convention and party conference the enactment of a law providing for State wide primaries to the end that boss dictation In the nomination of candidates should be eliminated. Re sponsive to this sentiment, the Legis lature enacted into law the provisions of the State-wide primary, and this SATURDAY EVENING, HXRRJSBURG TELEGRAPH SEPTEMBER 12. 1014 > tar il has had full expression In the choice of candidates for the several offices to be tille-d at the November j election. Now come a few self-constituted \ bosses of the two parties in interest land decree that certain of the nomi | nees of the people shall withdraw in j pursuance of a political compact fa- I vorable to the Democratic party. It ! isn't enough that the spirit and pur ] pose of the primary law shall be dis regarded and flouted, but alleged prln | ciples for which these two parties are supposed to stand are likewise dis i carded In fulfillment of a political deal. The Progressive party, which is the Washington party in Pennsylvania, is favorable to the protective tariff sys tem and most of the other national policies for which the Republican party has stood for years. Yet the fusion compact which has been ar ranged by a few bosses would place the voters of the Washington party in alignment with that element of the Democratic party which applauds the Wilson theories of government and which theories in operation have brought widespread disaster and dis tress. Such an incongruous combination has never been known in the history of Pennsylvania politics, and it is un reasonable to expect that tlio fusion deal will do more than further deci mate the rapidly-thinning ranks of the Washington party, most of whose members have already returned to the Republican fold this year. Another feature of the inconsistent combination is the fact that while the whole fusion propaganda is presum ably alined at Senator Penrose, the candidate «»f the Democratic party for United States Senator persists In remaining In the lield in opposition, not only to Senator Penrose, but also to Gifford Pinchot, the nominee of the Progressive organization for the same office. Nothing more selfish than the attempt to line up Washington party voters for McCormick while his asso ciate, A. Mitchell Palmer, remains a. candidate for United States Senator against Pinchot, the Washington i party nominee, has been developed in this Democratic factional campaign characterized from beginning to end by selfishness and consuming ambi tion. THE FARMER'S WIFE CONGRESSMAN KR EIDER, in his address to-day before the Boys' Agricultural and Girls' Domestic Science clubs at lona, Lebanon county, hit the nail squarely on the head when he took up cudgels In defense of the farmer's wife. Said he; I wish to emphasize the fact that we can not give too great consid eration to the one we have prom ised to love, honor and protect. She who shares our joys and sorrows, she who defends and clings to us, when all others divide and desert us, she who wields that mother's influence over our children and im plants into their hearts all that is kind and pure and lovely. Is it not due to her, that she should have a little time for recreation and en joyment'? Let us never he so busy but that it will be possible to have occasionally an hour, or a day, or a week, for a little drive or an outing. Lot us provide her with as pleasant and convenient a home and surroundings as possible, giv ing her all the comforts we know how; and above all. let us not wait until she has passed to the Great Beyond and then pile her flowers on her coffin, but let us while she lives, strew an occasional flower in her pathway and thereby brighten her life and make her companion ship doubly sweet. Every husband ought to read that paragraph. It applies not only to the mar. on the farm, hut to the city man as well. Too often the hushand for gets that his wife is at home all day while he is out meeting men, that her lot is often lonely and monotonous, while his own, though perhaps quite as arduous, is nevertheless varied in its Incidents and occupations. Too often the husband's plensures are for himself alone, forgetful that his wife should share them with him. Granted that the "woman's place is the home," it cannot be held that she ought to be confined there like a prisoner twenty-four hours out of tho day and seven days out of the week. If you have any money for flowers take Congressman Krelder's advice and spend it on your wife now. She won't mine? if the memorial wreath on the day of the funeral Is a little less in size. AN EXAMPLE IN SUGAR HOW well President Wilson has kept his promise "to do nothing that would injure American business" is Illustrated by an nouncement made in yesterday's issue of the Daily Consular Reports of the government. Says the Report: Widespread sentiment now pre vails In Venezuela in favor of dis carding the antiquated methods of manufacturing sugar and substitut ing modern machinery. The three large stock companies preparing to operate in the region of Lake Mara caigo are the l.a Celba Sugar Co.. Zulla Central Sugar Co., and the Venezuelan Sugar Co. The Venezue lan Sugar Co. purchased a plant in Louisiana which has a capacity of SOO ton-loads of cane per ilay of twenty-four hours, and various of ficers and stockholders of tlio com pany saw the plant in operation continuously for twenty-one days. On one day during the trial It ground #75 ton-loads. Competent engineers have pronounced the plant in perfect condition as to both machinery and the quality of product. This plant, for the • manufacture of sugar in Venezuela, was purchased In Txwisiana because Its owners there had been forced out of business by the Democratic tariff. It was in "per fect. condition." but its owners sold it for what it would bring to a foreign competitor into whose hands the United States government had placed the deadly weapon of unfair advan tage. Yet we do not hear that sugar is going to go down in price. Here we have a fine example of the TTnderwood tariff—an American Indus try ruined. Its innehlnery sold to a foreigner and the public paying higher prices than ever before for sugar. Strong argument for the election of a free-trade Senator and Governor, len't it? f EVENING CHAD Considerable interest Is being manl lested on Capitol Hill in the conven tion of sealers of weights and meas ures of the State, which Is to be held at the Statehouse commencing next ruesday, because it # will bring out .lust what the results of enforcement of the law of 1913 have been. It is said here that, thanks to the acts passed last year, the use of "bottomless" measures and of combination meas ures has been cheeked and that firms which formerly made measures which could be manipulated have stopped shipping them into Pennsylvania be cause there Is no demand for them and they ran risks of getting into trouble. Chief of Standards James feweeney says that the enforcement of the laws by city and county seal ers has saved hundreds of thousands oi dollars to the housekeepers of the .state, as the tons of crooked meas ures and false weights taken illustrate. Some of the measures taken were art fully arranged to deceive, and at tempted destruction when seized showed that the owners knew how to use them. Sealers say that an at tempt to bring about changes in the law to make it less rigorous will be made next session, and they propose to let the State know what has been accomplished in order to prevent it. According to reports which State Zoologist H, A. Surface has been re ceiving at the Capitol, there will he an abundance of chestnut* through out the State. J.<arge areas are re ported t»> be well supplied with burrs and prospects are for an excellent crop. In some parts of the State, where blight was reported as making inroads a few years ago, there will be large yields, infected trees having been cut out. The counties along the Blue Ridge mountains report indica tions of a very heavy crop. Tho big pieces of stone on the lawn of the government building are being put to good use by the squirrels from Capitol Park fhe.se days, and it is said b.v the workmen that stores of nuts for winter use will be uncovered when the time comes to clear up.' Every day squirrels sfcurry over from «'apt'- tol Park with nuts and disappear be neath the stones and timbers and then come out looking innocent. The pea nut. man along Third street appears to he popular with the squirrels, be cause they gather around him and are rewarded by a nut or two. Hartisburg policemen are com mencing to get tirod of the hoys who ride about town in the evening with out having their bicycle lamps lighted, fine cf the corner officers says that he stopped a dozen boys the other even ing and that he intends to "pull in" some of the kids who fail to observe common sense regulations, one in veterate offender was stopped last night and told to light up. He in formed the policeman that he had been unable to get a wick. "That's what you gave me the other night," said the policeman, "llonest. I tried a lot of places but they ain't got my size." The policeman told him to find the right store or get in training for a trip to the police station. When Governor Tener and the members of his staff started for Bal timore to-day to attend the Star Spangled Banner celebration the Gov ernor was attended by the State color-bearer, who carries the blue and gold silk flag. This flag has; done duty for four Governors and is one of the handsomest in Pennsylvania. It has been used at many encamp ments but is so well taken care of that it is as good as new. But com pared to the Mar.valnd State flag it is a very modest affair. One of the many lines affected by the war is the china industry. It may not be widely known, but it is the truth, that the gold used in decorating china is made only in Germany. There is a gold paint made in the United States, but the "real gold" that is used on real china is made only in Germany. Thousands of dollars in gold coin have been destroyed in try ing to find out how the German gold paint is made. Domestic gold fre quently, according to china painters, turns black when the china is fired. The German gold goes through fire and comes out with a brilliant gloss, according to the process used in firing. Old gold effect is secured by slow heating. With the beautifying of Harris burg's river front and the building: of the dam across the river below the city there is an ever-increasing; interest in all kinds of aquatic sports anions Harrisburgers. One of the most pop ular sports, of course, is canoeing, and this form of recreation is gaining more adherents every day. The Harrishurg Chamber of Commerce and lovers of sport have recognized the sport and are doing much to make it more en joyable by blasting many of the dan gerous rocks from the lied of the river. While this work is being done it has been suggested by a number of canoeists that it might be a gnod plan to make a canoe channel across the river to the Conodoguinet. This is one of the best canoeing places hereabouts, but on account of the dangerous rocks and low water is now not accessible from the Harrisburg shore. Whether or not it would be possible to make such a channel the canoeist did not say, but if It is possible there would be no trouble in raising a good-sized fund for the work among canoeists if someone would only make the start. 1 WELL KNOWN PEOPLE 1 —rercy M.

FUSION BOOSTERS HOW EXPLAINING Loudly Protesting That There is No Deal to Bring About the Mule Ticket PENROSE MAKES CHALLENGE Dares Dean Lewis to Say That He Has No Promise From Mc- Cormick For Any Reward Leaders of the Democratic and Washington parties are already at the denying stage. They are denying that there was any deal whereby Dean Lewis got off the Bull Moose ticket In favor of Vance C. McCormick; deny ing that there will be any further fusion; denying that the Washington party has been given the short end and that the refusal of the Demo crats to give the Bull Moose any places in return for Lewis' retirement is un expected and denying that the Demo crats are going to finance the Wash ington party campaign. •Men in authority in both parties arc commencing to hear from the rank and file in no uncertain terms and the printing of interviews with men who are in politics for revenge or for what jobs they can get does not disguise the fact that away down among the men who vote there is pronounced objection. A. Nevin Detrich, Washington party : State chairman, said yesterday that] there had been no deal. Then he began to say how much stronger was Pinchot than Palmer for senator. It begins fo look as though McCor mick will be on a mule ticket and I tint a lot of machine Democrats will swing in for Pinchot. It will lie in teresting to watch the disparity be tween votes for McCormick on the Democratic ticket and for Palmer. The Philadelphia Evening Bulletin, which was favorable to Berry in 1910, but which does not. see much in the fusion movement this year, in an article lust Fusion Head night made fun of the Get.s Little P a 1 m e r-McCormick Approval tour in the vicinity of Philadelphia, saying that the crowds were so small as not to warrant the ex penditure of gasoline and wear and tear on machines. It also intimated that no one appeared to be much interested and wound uji by calling the party the "Linen Duster squad ron." Pittsburgh papers fail to com mend fusion and the Philadelphia Rec ord, Democratic, plays up the state ments by the boosters of fusion that there was no deal. The Philadelphia Ledger to-day says that Dean Lewis kicked the Washington party in the face and says that the Bull Moose party is a "screaming farce." other independent newspapers voice disgust with the retirement of Lewis and the readiness of McCormick to accept fusion with a party whose chief and whose platforms denounce President Wilson, for whom McCormick says he stands. Senator Boies Penrose added to the dismay in the camps of the Democrats and Bull Moosers yesterday when he reiterated his charge that the fusion move- ment was made in pur- Penrose in suance of a deal, his Challenge statement being more or to Lewis loss ot a direct challenge to Dean Lewis. The sen- ator issued the statement at Philadel phia and it attracted much attention, but was carefully left alone by the mule ticket candidate and the apolo gists for Dean Lewis. In his state ment the senator says: "I see that Mr. Lewis denies with fervor the statement that there was any deal in Ills withdrawal as a candidate tor Governor, particularly any corrupt arrangement as to his appointment as Attorney General. "I would like to ask Mr. Lewis whether the rumor Is correct that he has discovered it absolutely impossible to finance his campaign even for neces sities, because he has been abandoned by William Flinn, who is unwilling to repeat the lavish expenditures made by him in the last campaign in this State, admitted to be over $150,000 from his individual pocket. "The only conclusion that can be reached is that a new paymaster was necessary, and that MeCormick, the Democratic candidate for Governor, was the only one in sight. MeCormick is a young aristocrat and plutocrat, who never has mingled in the public affairs of the Commonwealth, and who will lind to his cost that he lias no relation to the aspirations of the wage-earners and plain people f>f the .State. He had better give his money to charity than to keep on spending it in this cam paign. He has conceived the thought that the election can be purchased. His inexperience leads him to this conclu sion, and lie will awaken on election day to lind how grossly he has been deceived. It will doubtless be consol ing, however, to Mr. Lewis and Ills friends to feel that, while abandoned by l'"linn, they may still tlnd a warm nesting place in the vicinity of Mr. Mc cormick's bank. "1 make the statement deliberately and challenge contradiction that part of this deal Is an arrangement by which Lew is Is to be appointed Attorney Gen eral in the event of Mr. McCormick's election. Of course. MeCormick will not be elected, but as the times are hard I suppose the promise is attractive." To Frank B. McClaln, Mayor of Lancaster and Republican 'candidate for Lieutenant-Governor, fell the po litical honors at a Pitts burgh gathering yester- MrClain in day. McClaln's humorous '.Humorous handling of the situation Mood Now of political candidates competing with the war of Europe for the atten tion of the people won him a warm welcome and this grew into a storm when McClain declared: "We should have no fault to find, however, that our eloquence finds no display in printers ink when even Ar mageddon has been forgotten. "William, the War Lord, has taken the place of Theodore the Restless." A new development in the fusion situation in the Democratic and Wash ington parties yesterday presented Itself when it was an nounced that a conven tion of all the antj- Antl-fjiqiior liquor forces in Penn- Convention sylvania would be held Next Week here next Thursday. September 17, for the purpose of concentrating the temper ance vote behind a complete fusion ticket. Concerning this meeting the Phila delphia Public Ledger says to-day: Dr. Lewis having set an example, local option leaders say that the thing to do now is to concentrate anti-liquor strength behind one candidate for United States senator opposed to Sen ator Penrose. The choice will be made between Gilford Pincliot, Wash ington nominee, nod A. Mitchell Pal mer. Democratic nominee. The gov ernorship virtually is settled. It is believed by the leaders that next Thursday's conference will indorse MeCormick. The convention also will consider who should lie its choice of the several candidates for Lieutenant- Governor. Sec retary of Internal Affairs and cnngressman-at-large. The call for the convention was signed by a number of men who have been urging L®wts and MeCormick not active in politics.

BARCELONA SAUDI NFS Loss of Harp Delicacy Might Cause Increase In Demand For Salmon Those who have had the good for tune of partaking of Barcelona sar-1 dines are loud in their praise of that delectable dish.

WOKS OF THE DEMOCRATIC CIjUB [Philadelphia Inquirer.l It seems to be the irony of fate that hard times, due to Democratic legis lation at Washington, should be given as the chief reason of the financial straits of the Democratic Club of this city. The organization is really the outgrowth of the success of the Demo cratic party in the last general election and it was composed, to a large degree, of officeholders or prospective office holders. It represents, in a special manner, the Palmer and McCormick Democracy. The fact that it has been found necessary to virtually declare a moratorium at a time when Mitchell Palmer and Vance McCormick are on the stump assuring the voters of the beneficent results of the Wilson ad ministration is, to say the least, very embarrassing.

THE DISASTROUS RKSUI.TS OK THE UNDKRWOOD TARIFF t From the Phila. Public Ledger] Theer Is bound to be a searching analysis of the President's declaration that the financial situation which con fronts the government was not due to the tariff, lie has asked for special ' war taxes," because there, was a fall ing off in customs revenues of $lO,- 000,000 in August, in comparison with the same month last year, and he has expressed his confidence that the peo ple of the country are ready "to sup port the government with generous self-denial." and that they will be In tolerant only of those who are not frank with them. The President is right. The peopje will be intolerant of those who are not frank. The indications are that the first men to be accused of deception are the advisers of the President, who have been attempting to convince themselves that their own tariff tin kering is not primarily responsible for the predicament in which the Treas ury finds itself. The imports received during the last fiscal year were $102,- 000,000 greater than in the preceding year, but the duties collected on im ports decreased $32,000,000. More than $100,000,000 worth of goods pro duved abroad displaced goods of American production in the home market, and more than $30,000,000 of taxes, the greater part of which the foreigner would have had to pay to enter our markets, have been levied directly on the American citizens to make up the deficit. The tariff was not framed to raise revenue, but to throw open the doors to foreign com petition. The situation at the close j( the fiscal year was "of the making" of the financiers in control in Wash ington, to use the President's phrase.
