Now that love's day Is nearly done. Leap lips I loved and forms I clasped: The frail, fair Daughter of the Sun: Eyes blue and brown, and gay and grave; The creamy throat, the swarthy cheek: The dancing nymph, the languid slave; The soul of flame, the spirit weak. I dream and I forget; they pass Before my thought can count their shames: Mere shadows on a listless glass. Mean memories and empty names. They are the dim. phantasmal sprites, (Stage plays of beauty, laughter, woe) That helped to speed forgotten nights— Because I had and let him go. But Someone Else, another shape, Bemalns forever by me there, Beyond all capture, all escape. For my desire and my despair: Bo them, the Daughters of the Sun, The setting sun has gathered in, And I remember only one: The woman that I did not win. —Reginald Wright KaulTman, in July Smart bet. "KICKED IN DE FACE BY GEMMAN FRIEN'" [Continued From First Pngn] [ sincerity and grasp of tho practical | questions with which he will have to deal as Governor of the Common wealth. Regarding the retirement of Dean Lewis, the third party candi date, Dr. Brumbaugh said: "I notice that my friend. William Draper Lewis, has surrendered to the Democratic party. I am sorry for him. In his primary platform, he ve hemently denounced both the old parties. He decided to live in good company all by himself. He declared that the future welfare of this State demanded that both parties be de feated and his party of hope and promise given office. Strange it is that he has repudiated himself and retired from the contest. It will be Interesting to learn In due time how he was made the victim of sordid and selfish men. "As for the fusion, I welcome it. In the Progressive party are many earnest, honest men who entered this movement conscientiously, and who will now find how basely they have been betrayed. Surely these men will never surrender their sincerity to ,loin in this ignoble and unworthy scheme. I stand here now to welcome them back to the party that they once sup ported. I assure them it will be a privilege and a pleasure to have them join with me in giving to the good people of Pennsylvania as progres sive, clean and capable an administra tion of our affairs as can any party in the world." Perhaps the most serious phase of the fusion scheme and which is turn ing away many voters of the Wash ington party is the fact that It is con trary to the whole spirit of the new primary law which was designed to overcome boss rule in the selection of candidates. It Is believed every where that the plan from beginning to end was financial; McCormlck was to pay the expenses for whatever sup port could be transferred by the Washington par'y bosses. licnis Glad to Quit Much significance is given in polit ical circles to the comment of the Philadelphia Record on the retire ment of Lewis in favor of McCormlck. As the spokesman for the Democrats of Pennsylvania the Record says:— It Is not at all surprising that Dean Lewis. who was nominated by the Bull Moosers for Governor, and who helped to frame a platform viciously denunciatory of the Demo cratic administration and Demo cratic policies, has decided to with draw, and no one has any right to question his desire to support the Democratic candidate for Governor. The effort to keep the Bull Moose alive without the stimulus of run ning Mr. Roosevelt as Its candidate for something has failed in Penn sylvania. as It has in other States, and as. It was bound to fail with out the continued supply of cash so lavishly used here two years ago. Mr. L.ewis has been in many parts of the State In an effort to put the needed life into a machine that needed more oiling than he was able to give it. and. discovering the hopelessness of his candidacy, has quit. The Record intimates that the fol lowers of will not follow him into the Democratic camp. "But re gardless of what the Bull Moosers may do," says the Record, "the Demo crats of Pennsylvania ought to be en couraged by their floundering and the strategy they think they are exercis ing in an effort to make Mr. Roose velt the Republican candidate for president in 1916." General Disgust The Record also says if it .could he proven that there was an under standing between Mr. Palmer or Mr. McCormlck on this action "there would be general disgust over the professions of sincerity of all con cerned." In their primary campaign, it is pointed out, both Palmer and McCormick "represented themselves as the special exponents of the ad ministration of President Wilson, and the bosses of the Roosevelt branch of the Republican party are among the most violent and most unfair of the critics of the Wilson administra tion." The Record broadly hints that Dean Lewis withdrew because he discovered the hopelessness of his candidacy, and then proceeds to say: "If he and the other remnants of the Bull Moose fiasco really want to insure the defeat of Penrose * * * why don't they do It by making Mr. IMnchot get out of the race • * * in favor of A. Mitchell Palmer?" Perhaps the most drastic comment on the surrender of Lewis to the Democratic bosses is the following from the independent Philadelphia Public Ledger: Political Vaudeville "The antics of the Washington party would spice the most laughable vaudeville. Dean Lewis now gushes forth with burning words of fulsome praise of the Democratic candidate for Governor, when only a few weeks ago the Dean drew a platform, and. over his signature, alluded to the Democrats as follows: 'The Demo cratic party as an instrument to ac complish either immediate or perma nent results Is impossible. Weakened as it.is by internal dissensions, it can not hope to command the full party strength at the election. The Wash ington party is the only channel through which machine rule can be destroyed.' "This opinion of the Democratic party sixty days ago was reinforced by the doughty champions of Dean Lewis in their State platform, in which' they alluded to Mr. McCormick and his party in the following raucous terms: We condemn the declared policy of the Democratic party—tariff for revenue only. Confessedly the pres ent Democratic tariff Is only the first step in the program of reduc tion. meant eventually to wipe out every vestige of the protection principle from our tariff. This policy we regard as a grave men ace. » • • The Washington party stands for protection. • • • We condemn the Democratic Ad ministration for surrendering the efficiency of civil and diplomatic service to the clamor of Democrats hungry for spoils. ' We particularly condemn the use of the Federal patronage In Penn sylvania to build up the Democratic machine in this State. "It is altogether a screaming farce. Stripped of veneer and insincerity, it reminds one of the old colored wom an who was evading the cross-ques tioning of a Philadelphia doctor seek ing to discover the nature of her in jury. Finally in reply to his question she admitted she had been hit 'wid an object.' 'Was it large?' 'Tol'able large.' 'Was it hard or soft?' 'Tol'- able hard.' 'Was It coming fast or slow?' 'Tol'able fast.' And then, her patience" exhausted, she exclaimed: 'To tell de truf, doctah, ah was just nach'ly kicked in de face by a gem man frien!' "In the end It will dawn upon the few heroic Washlngtonians yet cling ing to the raft that 'dey was just nach'ly kicked in de face by a gem man frlen!' " Gilford Still Circulates As showing how the game is re garded outside Pennsylvania the New York Sun says Palmer and McCor mlck "had to defend themseives at once from the charge or suspicion of an alliance with the Rull Moose rem nant. They had to deny that they had any hand in or. Intention of fusion. HXRRISBURG BSBb TELEGRAPH CTPAI Tr^r\rotDDceTcwrojcnieMPißfi'A OR. ALBRIGHT TELLS OP U. D. GROWTH Middletown Pastor Addresses Big Gathering at Neffsville, Lan caster County The growth of the United Breth ren Church from a little meeting in the barn of n Lancaster county farm er nearly 150 pears ago to its present enrollment of over 315,000 members with its Sunday school enrollment of .'190,000 and owning church property worth more than thirteen million dol lars, was traced by tint Rev. Dr. I. H. Albright, paslor of the First United Brethren Church at Middletown and historical secretary of the Kast Penn sylvania conference, at an address at Neffsville, l.ancaster county, Satur day. The address was delivered at the anmiiil memorial meeting in the barn on tlie old Isaac Long- farm now own ed by Jacob R. l.andis, a descendant. It was in this barn on Whit Sunday in 17*>fi that a .big meeting of mem bers of Lutheran, Reformed, Mcnnon ite and Ornish churches was held un der the leadership of the Rev. Martin Behm, of Lancaster, and the Rev. William Otterbein, of York. The or ganization of the United Brethren Church resulted from the meeting. At the memorial services Saturday hun dreds of churchmen from Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties paid trib ute to the memories of the church founders. The Rev. Dr. Albright said the first regular annual conference of the church was not held until the year 1800, the first class was not regularly organized until some years later, and the first general conference was not held until the year 1815. The church, he said, has grown until to-day forty three annual conferences, 315,000 members. 3,400 churches, 1,118 par sonages. property valued at more than J13,000.000. Sunday schools, 3,380 with an enrollment of 390,000 scholars.

September 24 has been selected as the date of the first annual public reception tjo the new members of Centenary United Brethren Church. This affair, which was originated by the Rev. A. K. Wier, will be held in the auditorium of Centenary Church. During the conference year, which ends September 31,' sixty-six new members have been added to the church enrollment. A committee of eleven members is now arranging a program for the affair. COUNCILMAN KKSItiNS | Joseph Wise has tendered bis resig nation as a member of the Highspire council. He assigned no reason for his action. At the meeting Friday night the Highspire council appro priated SIOO to the Highspire Fire Company and granted the company permission to attend the convention In Harrlsburg. President Ulrich an pninted Councilmen Shelley, Hoover and Leidigh to represent Highspire at the Home Rule League meeting in Harrisburg, September Hi. In fact, 4he Bull Moose situation in Pennsylvania is delightfully comic. The Lewis campaign was hopeless. Ap parently negotiations for Mr. Lewis's abdication were in progress at Saga more Hill some weeks ago, though the fact was denied. Mr. Lewis's plat form was full of jabs at Mr. Wilson's administration and at the Democratic performances and program." * • • "The platform of Mr. MrCormick Is as generous in praise of the adminis tration and Democratic policies as the Progressive platform was in censure. Ttie swift genius of the Colonel has revolved rapidly from pole to pole. "Meanwhile, that beautiful and blameless woodlander, the Hon. Gif ford Pinchot, who is,as likely to be come a Senator as Dean Lewis was to become Governor, is still in circula tion. "In some mysterious way, hidden from common men. the abdication of Lewis is to serve the cause of virtue and injure Mr. Penrose. To the un initiated it looks merely as if the Colonel were still persuaded that he can run against the war." McC<vrniick anil Lewis Deal That it is an impossible fusion is the conclusion of t,he Philadelphia Evening Telegraph, which says:— "The withdrawal of William Draper Lewis as the Washington party candi date for Governor Is chiefly significant as a confession of the, utter hopeless ness of that party's cause. That hope lessness was made evident by the vote of the primaries. "All that he can still control of the fragments of the Washington party in the State have been handed over by ex-Senator Fllnn for the use of the Democrats. He has wearied of the noble and uplifting work of under writing the party, and unloads on the, most convenient murket. The Demo cratic candidate for Governor has' plenty of money, and as his lavish use ' of it in the primaries has shown, is willing to spend it. "This so-called fusion has long been incubating. The Democratic bosses have not given the Washington party bosses any rest on the subject for weeks. The Washington party candi date for Governor and the Democratic ' candidate for Governor 'have con- 1 ferred frequently and have had an understanding,' to quote from a re ported explanation of Dr. Lewis. When Fllnn and McCormick and Lewis were all In town the job was fixed. "This deal is a betrayal of every one who was sincere in his adherence to the Washington party. There were still some such left in spite of the fact that so many of the rank and file dis covered the insincerity of the leaders long ago and returned to the Repub lican ranks. It is a betrayal of the Washington party platform, which condemns the policies of the Demo cratic party." Many other important and influen tial newspapers take the same view of the fusion deal, which is regarded as a flagrant violation of party I pledges. i I MERCHANTS EAT CHICKEN AND WAFFLES Steclton Association Plans Out ing at Linglestown Thursday Elaborate arrangements are be ing made for the first outing of the members of the Steelton Merchants' Association, who With their wives will hold a chicken and waffle supper at Linglestown Thursday evening.

SONG OF THE SEA Great is the Yacht Reporter now, He has much space and lots of pay; He cometh in from' Sandy Hook And serves trial races up this way: "With rail awash she crossed the line I And beat up to the windward fine. With sheets belayed, all snug: and taut She had a gentle list to port. She jockeyed to a starboard tack And then again to port came back. They kept her headed south by north, And, flying through a sea of froth, It could be seen her topmost stays Had buckled in two dlf'rent ways— She pointed up to three degrees. And threw her gaskets to the breeze; The finish was a sight to see, Corrected time, 3—33," The Yacht reporter likes technique, As does the baseball man; |To many, though/ it may be Greek; Tt tickleth the Fan. I THIN KIN* Thinkln' refresh in' thought, like rain In summer time, i W hen ground's been dry for the long est while and suddenly beats the ryhme of the silver, palpitant rain, and the cool wind over it hlows, And that's the loveliest kind of thought that the human intellect . knows. Thinkin' tenderer things to say and to do for the one Who waits all day in the dream of the years as they dance and run Along on their feet of dew, and your own cheek colors like hers Thinkln' of love that way till your whole heart trembles and stirs. Thinkln' cool places of rest away from j the heat and stir Of the streets of the city that buzz with that sleepless, eternal whirr Of spindle and loom and thread, and over you trees and vine's. And the delicate blooms and the grass and the far sea that sings and shines. —Baltimore Sun.

BUSINESS BBOVXXTT. Stagnation la All Countries, Wot Insuring This Security. One of the questions of the day relates to , the extent to which a govern ment should interfere in the af fairs of business. The success ful man has always had to run the risk of attack. Safety from unreasonable Interference by government or attack by others leads the ambitious man *on to his greatest exertions. In somo countries, as in parts of /Asia, government rapacity has'made it dangerous for a man to ac quire anything beyond his bare necessities. In such a society, nothing but poverty and busi ness stagnation can exist. •, ' Governmental intervention in the affairs of business should extend only over such things as are necessary for fair publicity and truthful statements. Under such a government, business se curity Is at its best. Individual ity and Initiative are encour aged; the country Is progressive, and its future prosperity Is well guarded. But as soon as legis lation begins to deprive the pro ducer of a square deal, or wlier* business is "regulated" by peo ple without the experience and necessary training, business se curity will be transformed Into business depression. A govern ment should be limited to Its natural functions of Just and reasonable legislation for the greatest good of the greatest number of people, and should never show favors In order to "catch votes" or to secure cam paign contributions.
