United Business Office, 203. Editorial Room 585. Job Dept. 201 WEDNESDAY EVENING. OCT. 7 üBRrMBAUGH AND TEMPERANCE UNFAIR, as usual when his own interests are involved, and with characteristic disregard for the truth, the Democratic candi- I date for Governor is going up and | down the State telling the people that ! Dr. Brumbaugh is not sincere in his | local option declarations. Yesterday, 1 at Shippensburg, Dr. Brumbaugh de fended his temperance record in the 'following language: ■ When, in 1888, there was pend ing in this State an amendment to the Constitution prohibitir~ the sale of liquor in Pennsylvania, I was the secretary of the anti saloon group in my home county, and Mr. Simpson, of Huntingdon, who was the president, with my self went over the county, stumped It and carried it by 705 majority for the white map of Pennsylvania. There are men in this room who voted with me on that occasion be cause they believed as I did on that proposition. Why. those who charge differently are character as sassins and defamers of men's good names, who would try to make you believe that I am not square on that proposition. I defy them ail and appeal to you men of Pennsyl vania whether any man anywhere in this State has a record or has made a declaration more plain and positive than my own on that ques tion. Where was McCormick, with his recently discovered local option views, when Brumbaugh was stumping the State for prohibition? Has McCor mick ever sacrificed his own time and : comfort—except in the present cam paign. to gratify his own selfish am bitions —In the cause of temperance? Without a thought other than for •what he sincerely believed was for the good of all the people, Dr. Brum baugh campaigned In years past for temperance even as he is now cam paigning for his own election. His record is clear and his position un mistakably in favor of local option. It Is not merely a campaign argument •with him, hut a firm conviction for which he was willing to stand in years when anti-liquor sentiment was not bo popular as It Is to-day. The voter will recognize in Dr. Brumbaugh a candidate who began his fight for temperance years ago and in McCor mick a nominee who has adopted the local option war cry as a means of getting votes for himself. A decrease in September tonnage of the Pennsylvania Railroad Is probably an Indication of prosperity as inter preted by the Democratic bosses of this State. If any of our readers happen to think of any particular thing that might be taxed that has not already been taxed by the Democratic Congress, they should send thei* suggestions to A. Mitchell Palmer, who prepared the metal schedule that has closed most of the big industries of Pennsylvania. LOCAL CO-OPERATION IT is a gratification to the citizens of Harrisburg, more of whom should be Identified with this important body, that the Chamber of Com merce is not only giving attention to! the needs of the city and its develop ment, but is also looking after the pleasure of the people. At the annual meeting this week reference was made to the dignified Fourth of July cele bration of this year under the auspices of the organization, to Its part in the decoration of the city for the firemen's convention, and at the same session preliminary steps were taken for an Interesting historical p»geant and river carnival next sum. It is this co-operation of the peojle that has made the new Harrisburg and which ae-ures the constant progress of the City. If our own people could hear the many pleasant things said about Har risburg and Its splendid advance of re cent years they, would be repaid for all their effort and trouble. The river carnival and historical pageant now under consideration is certain to pro vide our citizens and thpusands of strangers an opportunity to see for themselves what great changes have been wrought along the front of the city in the permanent treatment of the river slope and low water line. But until and unless the ragged Masses of silt and refuse which have accumulated over a period of years outside the concrete wall a're removed WEDNESDAY EVENING, HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH OCTOBER 7, 1914, there will be a serious defect in an admirable public improvement. It is still the hope of all Interested In this I great work that the municipal authori ties concerned and the contractors will make a real effort before cold weather to eliminate all of these un sightly deposits from Iron alley to Maclay street. It is their duty and it ought to be their pleasure to complete the work and crown their own efforts with the removal of all this rubbish. ! Richard R. Quay Is not the only Bull ; Moose leader who Is disgusted with the Flinn-McCormlck deal. Other honest I followers of Colonel Roosevelt—most of j them In fact—have repudiated the out i rageous sell-out of the third party and : with practical unanimity they are de ' daring for the Republican candidates. POLITICS AND RELIGION IT is not surprising that prominent churchmen and religious and tem perance leaders are protesting against the use of these agencies to promote partisan politics. Church conferences and synods have been led into an atmosphere of partisanship by emissaries of the Democratic candi date for Governor wearing the cloak of the clergy and reform. It is the right of every individual to form his own conclusions respecting the exercise of the voting franchise, but grave consequences are certain to follow any misuse of religious Instru mentalities and temperance propa ganda for a particular candidate. There has never been a campaign in Pennsylvania wherein such brazen in vasion of religious organizations has been encouraged in the interest of one candldato as against others equally entitled to the consideration of Chris tian voters. It is time for the hosts of supporters of Dr. Martin G. Brumbaugh, the Re publican candidate for Governor, to make their protest felt in the bodies that have been led Into this Inde fensible attitude by scheming parti sans of an ambitious candidate. The Rev. Dr. Thomas W. McKenty, at a meeting of an association of Methodist preachers in Philadelphia this week, declared that it was im proper to convert a preachers' meet ing into a political meeting, no matter what the virtues of the Issues involved. He stated that such resolutions -as those endorsing particular candidates explained the failure of the association "to exert the influence it once did in this community." Dr. McKenty went further and declared that the reso lution did not represent the sentiments of the Methodist people of Philadel phia. "You are injuring the influence of the ministry because you are trying to mix theology and politics and you are making a mess of it," was his con clusion. Scores and hundreds of clergymen agree with their protesting Philadel phia brother. These realize that in fluences are at work beneath the sur face that are likely to involve a num ber of the religious bodies in endless controversies. Those who have any knowledge of the recent feo-called nonpartisan tem perance conference in this city, which endorsed McCormick for Governor, are quite familiar with the motives and purposes of the individuals who handled that particular affair. These same persons are evidently busy now with the denominational bodies in dif ferent places throughout the State in pushing through similar endorsements. Reaction against the candidate in whose Interest this manipulation of religion and temperance for political purposes has been scandalizing the State is certain to follow. Hundreds of our visitors this week have been pleased to compliment the artistic decoration of the Telegraph Building. Nothing is too attractive for Harrisburg. GARDENING AT HOME THE American Vegetable Grow ers Association now in session is doing a great constructive work In undertaking to teach housewives how to buy and use vege tables and farmers how to grow them cheaply and of quality acceptable to the market. The vegetable growers are men who make the'lr livelihood by producing vegetables to sell, conse quently they say nothing about the home garden, hut if they are consis tent they will add to their program a course in garden truck growing at home. It is unquestionably true that our butcher bills are too high for our in comes and for our own physical weli being as well, but it is just as true that living expenses could be reduced and health improved by a general resump tion of the old-fashioned practice of back yard cultivation. Since the removal of the broken and dead trees in the River Park by the Department of Parks and City Property the necessity for generous tree plant ing this year is more apparent than ever. It is to be hoped the trees that are planted this Fall will be large enough to fill up in a measure the gaps created by the removal of the old trunks. THE WHARTON SCHOOL THE Wharton School branch of the University of Pennsylvania In Harrisburg opened most aus piciously last evening. The fact that almost double the required num ber of students enrolled indicates the need of such an advanced business course in Harrisburg, and the many professional and business men and women present may be taken as proof that interest in the enterprise on the part of employes is not lacking. Every thing points to a successful future for the school. Necessarily the classes must avail themselves of the offer of the school board for the use of the Technical high school as a meeting place. Even tually, however, it is to be hoped that Harrisburg's branch of the university may have a home of Its own, with courses even broader than those now prescribed. That in truth would be "bringing the university to. the stu dent." EVENING CHAT 1 • ——— One of the notable things about the manner In which Harrisburg Is enter taining Its thousands of visitors to the State firemen's convention la the wide spread Interest being taken In It. People have as guests many friends from all parts of the State and the convention is being made a sort of carnival week or celebration by the State Capital, Steelton and the ring of boroughs roundabout. In fact, there were as many people from the nearby towns to see the decora tions last night as there were visitors from more distant places. All Harris burg seemed to be downtown or in town or uptown as the case might be according to residence and the vis itors saw whole families of Harris burgers, some men and women having three and four children out to see the lights and the flags and the crowds and to hear the bands. The whole town seems to be entering into the spirit of the occasion and to be wel coming the State firemen bacli to Harrisburg after an absence of al most a quarter of century. There has been no occasion In recent years in which the general Interest has been so marked. It augurs well for the proposed carnival for next year. This city has no fair and while It has nu merous conventions It does not have anything that enables It to put on Its best clothes and have fun. Motordriven fire apparatus appears to have the call about the city and the men in charge are besteged with re quests to be allowed to ride on the trucks. Firemen gather around them and many take rides to see how It goes. Yesterday a couple of firemen's wives were bantered by their husbands into taking rides. The driver whirled Hjem around the city, taking them by snort cuts around corners and giving bursts of speed. But the ladies were game and they dismounted amid the applause of a crowd In Market Square, a bit flushed with the excitement and with hats somewhat to the side, but thoroughly pleased with their spin In and out of the crowds. The firemen's convention has put war talk out of the running as a con versational topic and some of the politics has a hard time to survive in the general discussion of the big event of the month or rather of the Fall in Harrisburg. This was illustrated the other afternoon in Market street. Some one said something about the chances of McCormick carrying Har risburg and the man addressed, re plied: "Oh, let it be. Did you see that company from Dußois?" Soon after some people passed up a bul letin board where the latest news passing the censor was shown, but they never stopped. A student of the board turned around and remarked: "Well, they're following a band. A week ago they would have been' elbowing me." One thing that has attracted atten tion in Harrisburg just now is the very general decorating of the city. There are decorations all over Harrisburg. Houses in outlying streets and in nar row backways display flags and there appears to be a general effort to outdo all former occasions. Streets in which no fire company or band will pass are all fixed up and there are por tions of Harrisburg which show where the folks in one block are trying to outdo those in the next. It has been a gala week for the decorators and the city can be proud of their ef forts. Just as an instance of the abundance of apples reported from the counties of Southern Pennsylvania it might be stated that at the markets on Saturday men wert taking orders for apples to be delhercd late this month or late* in the fail. Ordinarily it is more or less difficult to get good brands of apples by such means and a person has to be a pretty good customer of a farmer to make sure of (irst-rate apples being sold through the stall of the city's markets. Incidentally, the way in which orders are being given for applebutter is worth while noting. The other afternoon a couple of men were standing in front of the Court house ccgiimenting upon the fact that it was getting its triennial coat of paint to overcome the ravages of coal dust. "Those Corinthian columns al ways attract my eye. I do not know of a handsomer portico on any public building. It goes back to a time of which we have not many good ex ampjes left," said the Harrisburger. "Yes," fired back the man from often-derided Philadelphia. "From the time when you said that the vear had arrived to put up your city hall." People living in the outlying dis tricts of the city have a new grievance against the motorcycle and they are not a bit backward about making it known. In addition to kicking up clouds of dust and endangering young sters it appears that some careless motorcyclists have been speeding around at night without lights. Thev probably go on the theory that a motorcycle makes enough noise to warn anyone of its coming. On Sat urday evening between Harrisburg and Steelton four lightless cycles were counted in a short time, and it was three hours after nightfall. It's rather unfortunate that some people will store up trouble for others who are careful of the public and cause re strictive measures when there should be no need for them.

BRUMBAUGH IS STEADFAST Prominent Clergyman Refutes Statements by the Overzeal ous Riley M. Little ALTER PRAISES BRUMBAUGH Speaker Says That He Will Carry Allegheny County; Demo crats Losing Heads Dr. Brumbaugh was declared to be steadfast and to be worthy of the sup port of the people for Governor yes terday by one of the most eminent clergymen of Pennsylvania. The Rev. Dr. Rtifus W. Miller, a leading minls- I ter of the Reformed Church, who is ] secretary of the Sunday school board, and of the board of publication of that denomination, yesterday refuted the implication made in a speech by Riley M. Little, a Democratic shouter, published yesterday morning. Dr. Miller makes it clear that while some of the facts stated by Little are true, in his mistaken zeal he has wholly misrepresented Dr. Brum baugh's attitude as an unbossed, un tramineled candidate, owing his alle giance only to the more than a quar ter of a million Qualified voters who indorsed his candidacy in May. Dr. Miller, in an interview, makes it definitely clear that Dr. Brumbaugh has steadfastly held to his attitude throughout the campaign as a candi date for the governorship, asking the support of all right thinking citizens on his own platform, and on his un impeachable record of public service. The Democratic ringmasters in the city are having a hard time to ex plain the big Increase in the regis tration in a number of the wards and the ef forts to make it appear Democrat#! that it means a Demo- Furnishing cratlc vote of great . Aniuscmc.it size are creating much amusement among the thousands of visitors. The truth is I that the Democrats fell down hard, just as they did in Philadelphia and I Pittsburgh, in efforts to roll up a big! registration and In spite of the elabo rate preparations made by the Pal mer-McCormick League the results have been all the other way. In the First and Tenth wards, for Instance, the Republican registration is very large and the Fourth ward, the home of Candidate McCormick will show a very heavy Republican enrollment. It was widely remarked last night that the Democratic State machine hffd proved unable because of its desperate situation to refrain from intruding politics Democratic on the convention j Dofieratlon crowds. The political ■ Shown Vp banners were taken down at the request of the firemen who did not want partisan politics injected I into their annual gathering and to | make some impression the Demo cratic State headquarters violated the whole spirit of the convention gath ering last night by sending dozens of little boys around the streets with banners attacking the Republicans. I For men who are backing a candidate who loudly proclaims his abhorrence of child labor the Democratic bosses certainly put their foot in it. Some of the banner bearers were youngsters of tender age and were in the streets until late at night. George E. Alter, Speaker of the last State House of Representatives, who championed the Unltjd States sena torial candidacy of J. Benjamin Dlmmick in Alter Says the primaries, yester- Brunihaiigli day called at the Will Win headquarters of the Brumbaugh citizens' committee and pre dicted that Dr. Martin G. Brumbaugh, Republican nominee for Governor, would sweep Allegheny county with a large majority. "Not only will 1 say tha£ Dr. Brumbaugh will carry Alle gheny county,'' Mr. Alter said, "but I'll guarantee that my legislative district, which was carried by Dimmick against Penrose in the primaries, will give the 'Schoolmaster' a most grati fying majority. Wherever Dr. Brum baugh goes he makes a tremendous impression. Is his independence ques tioned? Not by a man who has seen and heard him. He is a great cam paigner and will make a greater Gov ernor." The Speaker expressed the thought that the campaign had not yet "warmed up" to its full strength, but that when it did. and it would do that soon, Dr. Brumbaugh would be a pre mier among candidates before the people. Congressman A. Mitchell Palmer yesterday appealed to the Wilson Ad ministration for still more help. Hav ing gotten the Taft econ omy In abolishing a rev enue district upset so that Palmer he could have more jobs to Wants give, ho .now wants to keep Help Scranton men quiet. He yesterday asked Secretary McAdoo to make Scranton, Pa., the headquarters of the new district. He made known his desire in th© follow- 1 ing franlt letter: "Dear Mr. Secretary: The legisla tive, judicial and executive appropria tion bill, recently signed hy the Presi dent. authorises the establishment of sixty-four internal revenue districts in the country, an increase of one dis trict. This change in the law was secured mainly through my efforts, In the desire to have the Twelfth Penn sylvania district restored. You will remember that this district was Joined with the Ninth district by executive order of President Taft, and I have appeared before you several times urgently requesting that it be re-estab lished. In view of the fact that the law now provides for the establish ment of an additional district, I trust you will have an order Issued re establishing the Twelfth Pennsylvania district with the same boundaries as it formerly had, and with headquar ters at Scranton."

The lire records of American cities cause appalled amazement throughout Eu rope. No doubt there has been great Improvement in recent years, but there is still a great opportunity for a national economy. Education Is the thing. Teaching the public, children and adults alike, the habit of care fulness is the llrst necessity. Attention to details of safety by architects, build ers and fitters up of houses Is of first rate Importance. The substitution of uninflammable for dangerous ma terials of all sorts should be urged. The campaign is worthy of all the energy that can be thrown into it.— New York Sun. Of course prayer Is answered: on Peace Sunday the President and Col onel Harvey made up.—Philadelphia Press.

PROTECTION AND PROSPERITY [From the Philadelphia t'ress] President Wilson's frank appeal to his Democratic followers to see to It that the United States Senate is kept Democratic In politics, so that ruin ous Democratic tariff policies and the i rest of the program may bbe main tained, hajs let in the light on the pre tenses of smaller Democratic leaders in this State, who are seeking the de feat of Senator Penrose. The campaign against Mr. Penrose | has been conducted, on the lowest i ground of personal blackguardism.! Issues of the greatest Importance to j the country and In particular to the i welfare of Pennsylvania, have been j rigorously avoided by Mr. Palmer and bis followers, who have contented themselves with appeals to prejudice and personal spleen ,in the hope of bringing about the defeat of the Re publican candidates That the hope Is a vain one Is obvious, and that Mr. Palmer himself believes that he Is al ready beaten beyond hope, Is to be in ferred from the Irritation that he dis plays, as his personal assaults fall of effect. NO STATE DEBT GOOF HOUSE KEEPING [Carlisle Herald] There is only one State In the Union -—Pennsylvania—that is out of debt. While it is true that there are State | bonds outstanding all of said bonds are being liquidated out of the sinking fund Just as soon as they mature.

To- i day there la not an unpuid State hond i that Is now due and payable, and there is continually in the sinking fund more . than sufficient to pay off the bonds as they mature. This is a proud record for any State. In the light of this fact it is very : gratifying to Republicans that their 1 party has been in almost uninterrupt ed control of the State government since 1861. We have had but one Democratic governor, Robert E. Pat tlson, who served two terms, having first been elected in 1882, and again elected in 1890. Since 1861 we have had two Democratic auditors general —Temple and Schell—and three Dem ocratic State treasurers McGrath, Noyes and Berry, and during the in cumbency of these gentlemen the SENTIMENT AND BUSINESS are poor companions when it comes to the matter of having a friend or relative administer the affairs of your estate and attend to the distribution of your prop erty.

HARRISBURG GAS COMPANY Democratic parly had a voice in the executive department of the State government. One who reads in the Democratic journals the bitter denunciation of Republican misrule at Harrlsburg will have difficulty in reconciling these at tacks with the fact that Pennsylvania, almost continuously Republican, is the 1 only State in the Union that is out of debt. There have doubtless been cases of misrule at Harrlsburg tor which the Republican party Is properly charg able, but we submit that this party should, on the other hand, have credit for "good housekeeping" on the part of the executive department of the Staite government, shown by the fact that the expenditures of the State have always been fully and promptly met by the State revenues.
