MAHPICIS ARE NOT ASSESSED Upper Enders Wonder Why They Were Missed; Must Reg ister Saturday Republicans of the Tenth and ' Eleventh wards discovered to-day that large numbers of them have not been assessed. One voter who has lived at the same place in the Tenth for five years and another who has voted from the same residence for eight years are not on the books. Almost all of those who have been missed by the assessors in the upper end of the city are Republicans. All voters are urged to see that they are qualified to register on Saturday, the last day, if they are not already registered. To register a voter must have a tax receipt of a not earlier date than November 5, 1912. If not in' possession of such receipt voters should look up their tax collectors and settlement. Registrars will sit Saturday from 8 to 1, from 2 to 6 and from 7 to 10 at the regular voting places. Developments Awaited in Mexican Situation By dissociated Press Washington, D. C\, Sept. 29.—De velopments in the Mexican ( situation «o-day awaited the outcome' of the conference between Carranza and Villa leaders. A feeling of optimism pre • vailed in Administration circles, where olflcials hoped the elimination of both Carranza and Villa as presidential candidates would heal the breach and bring peace. The situation was dis cussed at the Cabinet meeting. The Administration's attitude was still de scribed as one of watchful waiting. Wadsworth Leading Calder in New York New York, Sept. 29. Returns which came in slowly this forenoon showed that James W. Wadsworth, Jr., was leading William M. Calder for the Re publican nomination for the United State Senate from New York by 25,- 000 in 1.371 districts outside of New York. Belated returns front 1,057 election districts outside of New York city increased Frederick M. Daven port's lead over William Sulzer for the Progressive nomination for Gov ernor. At noon Davenport was lead ing Sulzer by 1,169. Although the Progressives cast an extremely light vote, they have an interesting fight on. With approxi mately half of the election districts in the State reported, Davenport is i; leading Sulzer by about l.noo. Late f returns show Davenport is gaining up-State and if he can continue to gain as he has has majority will be about 25,000. Governor Glynn defeated John A. Itennessy for the Democratic nomina tion for Governor with ease. District Attorney Whitman has a I i nnaway race against Harvey D. Hln man and Job Hedges for the Repub lican gubernatorial honors. Ambassador James W. Gerard proved an easy victor over Franklin , D. Roosevelt and James S. McDon gi ough for the Democratic senatorial if nomination. Bainbrldge Colby is the Progressive I candidate for Senator. He was unop ♦ posed, as were all the candidates on !' that ticket except Davenport and S Sulzer. It appears that practically all of the I >iresent, incumbents in Congress who sought renomlnatlons were success ful. DKSKKTS WIPE AND lIAIMKS At H heHVing before Alderman George V.

TUESDAY EVENING, _ BXRRISBURG TELEGRAPH SEPTEMBER 29, 1914. TAKE IT FROM MISS DOWDELL, THEIR TEACHER, EVERY MOTHER'S DAVGHTER CERTAINLY CAN COOK .Miss Jessie Dowdell s|teaking: •'Oil, yes, indeed they can cook. Anyone of tlicm can prepare breakfast or even Itinelieon and do it very well." Miss Dowdell is the instructor of the Reservoir Park summer domestic science kitchens and that's the way she speaks of everyone of the 151 pretty little housekeepers of the fu ture who comprised the largest class that ever attended cooking school at the reservoir. To-day the Telegraph prints a pic ture of most of the frilly capped and aproned student-cooks—all surround ing the teacher. That's teacher in the center, —without the cap. The great group contains the first, sec ond and third year pupils and the girls range from eleven to eighteen years. Officially it is of record in munici-1 pal circles that the girls CAN cook, j Not so long ago the third year class prepared dinner for the City Commis--| sioners of the kind that they'd often I read of but never expected to be lucky I enough to eat.

Burns Alias McNulty Fills Two Important Jobs From the time H. F. Burns, alias McNulty. stepped from the prisoners' cage in No. 1 courtroom until he was escorted back again by deputy sheriffs he filled the shoes and job "of counsel for the defense. And H. F. Burns, alias McNulty, was the defendant. Ten minutes later the Jury that had considered the case of 11. F. Burns, alias McNulty, charged with obtaining S9O from the Rev. Father W. W. Whalen under false pretenses as a detective and efficiency man for the Pennsylvania Steel Company, returned a verdict of guilty as indicted. That closed, so far as the trial of the case was concerned, one of the unique hearings of September criminal court. When Burns was called to the de fendants' table he politely told Dis trict Attorney Stroup that he did not need to bother about selecting a law yer for him, as he would conduct his own defense, with the court's permis sion. For half an hour, then, an in terested courtroom saw and heard a prisoner conduct his own defense with all the sangfroid of a well-trained attorney. Hums questioned certain queries of the district attorney, brow beta the Commonwealth's witnesses, cross-examined with the lowered brows of a real, indignant lawyer, and otherwise handled his cpse in real legal style. The Counsel for the Defense Burns' defense was that he was em ployed as a detective and that he had made no effort to defraud, had made no malicious representations to obtain money, and had arraigned to pay back the loans to Father Whalen. It was when Mr. Stroup had closed the case for the State that Burns sprung his real surprise. Ilising to his feet iinil resting his thumbs nonchalantly on the counsel table, the "counsel for the defense" coolly asked that the indictment he quashed on the grounds that no ma licious intent had been proven. President Judge Kunkel gravely pointed out that the questions at is sue were for the jury to determine and the court refiised the motion to quash. In No. 1 room Curtis Bowers was tried for stealing a purse containing s3l; Harry Barron was acquitted of robbing a Pottsville woman of $205. Other cases disposed of during the day included: Henry Smith, larceny, two months; Charles Washington, assault and bat tery, fine and costs; Howard Brunner, charged with stabbing William Smith In subway; Albert Pennington, acquit ted but pay costs in assault and bat tery case: Hezekiah Warren, Willlard Johnson and John Moon, on trial for larceny and malicious mischief.

OUTER WALL SHOULD i SE RID OE RUBBISH i Now Is the Best Time For Stuckers to Remove Accumulations of Years Unless and until the enormous i quantity of all sorts of rubbish which! has accumulated over a period ot'; years outside the river wall is re- j moved the attractive character of this| important improvement will be in a' measure destroyed. Under the contract the Stucker! Brothers Construction Company is re- 1 quired to remove the silt so that there | shall be at least two feet of water' on the foot wall. The river is now at its, lowest stage, being within seven-] tenths of a foot of the low water mark. But it is almost certain that | this stage of the river will not; continue long and unless the contrac- j tors show unusual energy during the | next two weeks the cleaning up of I the lUver Front will be out of the! question this year. It is probable that! lnpst of this unsightly material will 1 be necessary to complete the filling 1 of the spare between the steps and I bark of the wall, but unless more energy is shown without delay the! | golden opportunity of the low-water I level will be lost. While the construction of the wall j i and steps at the pumping station has: I been rather difficult, it is expected | | this work will be finished during the 1 present week. Foreman Williams, who i ! made a record on the stretch between j i "Hardscrabble" and Maciay street, is j ! in charge of the work now from Herri ! street southward and the operations' ! will doubtless be conducted with his I usual energy. Yesterday a steam shovel was in- ! ■stalled south of (''alder street and the j j cleaning-up process will doubtless bo i ! hustled nlong. I I . . N Son of Emperor William Reported to Be Dead in Hospital in Brussels By Associated Press London, Sept. 29, 3:30 a. m.—The j Ghent correspondent of the Daily ] | News sends with reserve the report j that a Belgian doctor from Brussels] •says that Prince Adelbert, the German; 1 emperor's third son, has died in a i hospital in Brussels, i Dr. Lepage, King Albert's physi- I cian, according to this report, was or- j ] dered to hold an autopsy in the pres- I j ence of two German doctors and it j I was found that the prince had been I ; killed by a German bullet. In other! autopsies on German officers it was j > found they also had died from a sim ) ilar cause. On September 13 an Ostend dis- , patch by way of London reported the, I death in a hospital at Brussels rf | j Crown I'rincc Frederick William, | Prince Adelbert of Prussia and Prince !

Kaiser's Son Was Ragged, but Polite Paris, Sept. 29.—A Bed, Cross nurse,] who has been at Rheims since the tirst i shells fell on September 2 says the | Germans behaved in the most correct | manner on their entry into the place j on September 4, when neither civil I nor military authorities remained in | the town. Many of the officers and j men believed they were only fifteen i j miles from Paris. "One day," says this nurse, "a | | young officer whose uniform was tat- I i tered and extremely dirty asked me I politely In the street, after saluting i | me, whether I could receive some j wounded in my hospital. I replied that it was impossible, as the place I was already full and we were unable to feed those who were there. Tho officer thanked me. I saw him then go to a shop, where he made some purchases. He came out of the shop with his hands filled with sausages and other eatables. The ragged young officer was Prince August Wilhelm, the kaiser's fourth son."

IMAYOR ASKS FOR DISMISSAL OF COP OR SEVERAL CHARGES City Council will meet in special ses sion at 4 o'clock Friday afternoon to consider Mayor John K. Royal's reso lution to drop Andrew E. Murphy from !the police force because of insubordi | nation and for conduct prejudicial to jthe force and unbecoming an officer. I The Mayor suggested Jacob Kinley in j his stead. ] The resolution caused a stir of the ; old-time variety and for fifteen or (twenty minutes the Mayor and Com ] mlssioners Lynch ana Taylor had it j out together. I Both Superintendents Lynch and Bowman declared that while they j would uphold the Mayor in dismissing jfrom the force any man whose con jduct was of such as to prejudice the j department, they iielieved any man i should have a iiearing. | The Mayor cited Instances of Mur- I phy's neglect of duty, failure to rc j port on time and of a more serious [character. In eaeh instance he ! said the chief of police bad investi gated and that he himself, as Mayor, 'had inquired fully. Each time | Murphy, the Mayor said, denied the ! charges. j "Have you given him a hearing, Mayor?" asked Mr. Lynch. I "No, not in this particular Instance j—but I've heard him time and again, i and the chief of police has probably I heard him a dozen times." "Well, I always like to give a man a chance," gently remonstrated Mr. J Lynch. "And I think, for one, that i you should give him a hearing." i "Yes, indeed, especially in view of ! what you said here some months ago," 'observed Mr. Taylor. "If you'll re | member you said that no man should |be dismissed without cause and that ihe should at least have a hearing." ! Says Hearing Will Be Useless "Council can hear him if it chooses, I but I'll tell you, gentlemen, 1 will not. II have heard him until I'm tired and another hearing will be useless be i cause—" j "Because," finished Mr. ' Gorgas, "you know the facts to be true." "Yes, and because I know that he'll ideny everything again just as he did I before." | "Well," said Mr. Lynch, "I think a j man under the circumstances ought [to have a show, and I believe in giv- J Ing him a hearing. Let's not act on j this to-day, anyway, Mayor, and let jit go over until Friday at 4 o'clock?" i And a motion to that effect by Mr. ! Lynch was adopted, i After the session the Mayor and j Messrs. Lynch and Taylor had a little set-too during which the Mayor reit jerted a statement made before Council !to the effect "that Murphy had been 'repeatedly warned, had been fined a I month's pay in July and five days of j his vacation, and had ben told that a j rpeition of the offense would not be tolerated. Polities Back of It? j After the session Commissioner ! Tailor declared that he had been told | Murphy says the whole thing is a "put jup Job' and that "politics are at the bottom of it." Murphy is an appointee iof Mayor Royal's. Now ordinances were offered by Mr. 'Bowman, providing for the laying of I water pipes in Twentieth from Market ito Holly; Holly, Yale to Twentieth land-a-half; Chestnut, Nineteenth to | Twentieth, and for placing a 60- | candlepower incandescent at Mary and | River streets. j Council accepted an invitation to I participate in the big parade during ! the firemen's convention, and the com ' missloners will meet nt the Court- I house at 1 o'clock and board an ,auto | mobile for the purpose. !
