BRUMBAUGH'S WELCOME THE great welcome home ac corded Dr. Martin G. Brum baugh by the people of his na tive county of Huntingdon yes terday testifies to the loving regard in which the Governor-elect is held by those who know him best. Following his nomination last Spring, when Huntingdon people of all parties tendered Dr. Brumbaugh a great reception, his political oppo nents were quick to say that the whole thing was a carefully worked up po litical demonstration for the purpose of impressing voters in other parts of the State. That this was as false as all of the other disparaging things said by the unscrupulous job-hunters who opposed the election of Dr. Brumbaugh is shown by the fact that last night, with no possible purpose other than to do honor to an old neighbor who had fared forth into the world and had "made good," Hunt ingdon again observed the home-com ing of the Governor-elect with a cele bration that far outshown its previous effort. CATTLE QUARANTINE WHILE unquestionably the im mediate effect will be an ad vance in the price of beef, the State-wide cattle quarantine established last night by order of the State Livestock Sanitary Board as a stay against the spread of the foot and mouth disease, which has broken out seriously in Pennsylvania, is undoubt edly a wise step and fully warranted under the circumstances. The only known means of fighting this plague, which spreads like wild lire through the herds it attacks, is by absolute isolation of the infected ani mals and thorough disinfection of the premises. Stock showing signs of con tamination ought to be killed without delay, as by this means alone the safety of the other farm animals can be assured. Owners should not rely on their own diagnosis. The State au thorities should be notified the mo ment a suspected case comes to light. The loss from the epldetpic is bound to be tremendous, and coming at a time when feed and meat prices are at the highest in years, will work untold hardship. But there is no gainsaying that tho State-wide quarantine is the best way that can bo found to limit its scope in Pennsylvania, to prevent spreading it from here to other States and to avoid bringing our own cattle into contact with infected herds of neighboring States. The board has been wise also in forbidding tho re moval of stock from one county of Pennsylvania to another without spe cial order. This precaution will tend to prevent the disease being carried from infected districts to others where the malady has not appeared and ought to be as strictly observed as the rule forbidding the importation or ex portation of livestock with regard to the State at large. The only way to stamp out the dis ease is to obey absolutely the orders issued by the State officials acquainted with the situation and conversant with the means of meeting it. WHERE IT CONCERN'S CS WITH something like four-fifths of the world's civilized people engaged in a destructive war fare in Europe, as a city Har risburg must ask with seriousness, "Where does all this concern us? What does It mean to this city?" With all Europe one vulture-luring battlefield, the hallowed places of art, the palace of universal peace, the models of much of our own municipal government and public school systems, the discoveries of many modern fac tors in public service and human wel fare crushed under foot by the mighty armies of the war lords who have breathed a prayer and then gone forth to wage their might despite the right, this war does concern the world at peace as much as that which is at •war. So it concerns us. And how? Financially and com mercially, the effects have been much discussed. Chiefly, however, it con cerns the welfare, the comfort, the happiness, the institutions of good government, of which things Amer. lean cities, together with the cities now engaged, have been the stewards and proteotors. But the European cttles are snarling at each other's throats to tear down all that is good In munici palities and countries. We alone are left to preserve the types of constructive civic life. We nlono must save these types of com munity welfare that the nations of the world, civilized and to be civilized, i may have them. We alone remain WEDNESDAY EVENING, constructive while the others have , become destructive, i Ours is a peace mission. As a city, I Harrisburg may do Its part. The glor ies of peace will be greater because so much of the world is at war. To pre serve the better things of civilization, to keep them intact, to save them not only for ourselves but for the otheir nations in sjdte of themselves, is a duty in which we are concerned not only as a nation but as a city as well. The challenge to us is renewed es pousal of good government and public welfare. NATIONAL DEFENSE THE CHICAGO EVENING POST strikes a popular chord when it says, commenting on the possi bility of preventing war by re ducing the armed forces of the great nations: This newspaper has proposed that, when the war ends, tho United States lead the way to reduce the war-provolcing armaments by vol unteering to reduce its own arma ment if the league of the great powers will do the same. We be lieve that the people of the United States feel this way to-day, and that they can be neither sneered nor stampeded into the militarism that has wrecked Europe. •This is good sense. What could the United States not do in real, construc tive work with the price it pays for new battleships—at least $25,000,000 every year? True it is that if Europe keeps up her armament the United States must do so. We cannot fall be hind in this awful race of preparation, but there is every reason to believe that when tho present war is over Europe will be open to a little reason. We imagine that the nations engaged will be so exhausted and the people so burdened with taxes that they will be willing to listen to a suggestion that would not only lessen their own taxation, but which would do m<jre than any one other thing to make for world-peace. GLENN A. WARNER IF the report be true that Glenn A. Warner is to leave Carlisle to be come the athletic coach of the Uni versity of Pittsburgh, the Indian school will lose a man who has de veloped its athletic teams from the "prep" school class until they are to day the dread of every university in the land. When Warner went to Carlisle it was no uncommon thing to find high school elevens pitted against the Car lisle football teams. How greatly he has changed that condition is appar ent to anybody conversant with foot ball history. Many of the most noted American gridiron stars have been de veloped at Carlisle and Warner has been wonderful as well in training men for the field and track. The veteran coach is particularly effective when he has strong, husky material from which to draw and the fact that the University of Pittsburgh is noted for its beef and brawn leads to the belief that he will live up to his reputation there and that Pittsburgh may soon loom up as a rival of some of the more pretentious eastern col leges. LET US NOT HALT HARRISBURG is doing nobly in the work of relief for Belgium. Hundreds of homeless little ones will be saved from the hideous death of starvation because Harrisbiurg people have given gener ously of their plenty toward the re lief of those who have been robbed by the cruel war of their little all. Countless mothers will bless the hands that have extended the blessing. Fathers in the field will never forget the response of America to the calls of their loved ones for food. But much as has been done we have only begun the work that must be carried forward with unremitting energy until the need no longer exists. 'Only a small proportion of our people have come forward with contributions. Those who have not given still have opportunity aplenty. Not only one more, but many more ships must cross the ocean if the people of stricken Bel gium are to survive the rigors of the winter that has already begun in that country. The Telegraph yesterday published a picture that well illustrates condi tions there. A mother surrounded by her little ones sleeping in straw by the roadside is no pleasant sight, but it is the common thing in Belgium to-day. Food, clothing and shelter must be provided. We in America alone have the means and the will. Perhaps it may not be too much to regard as pro vidential tho good fortune that has kept our country from the sword that we might use our resources for the benefit of the destitute and helpless of the devastated war zone. TIME TO CALL A HAIJT NEWSPAPER dispatches this morning contains a threat, credit ed to the German government, that unless Belgians at once re turn to their homes and go to work at their usual occupations the Germans will cease to permit food to bo brought into them from America. It is hardly conceivable that the Kaiser has Issued or even seriously considers such an impossible order. Thousands of those who have flock ed to the seacoast towns or have fled to the borders of neighboring States from Belgium have no homes to which they can return. Their harvests have been ruined, their cities left in ruins, their houses looted or burned, their home supporters killed or in the army. What utter nonsense it Is to talk of a woman or a man returning to a home that no longer exists, to take up an occupation that, foi; the time being at least, has been rendered entirely unremunerative, if not actually blot ted out. As we have said, it is not conceiv able that any government should con sider such a measure. But if it is contemplated and the Germans have one particle of regard for the neutral ity of the United States they should consider well before trying to put it into effect. We can think of no surer means of bringing down the •wrath of America on the head of any] European nation than to have Its rulers try to halt our effort* to care for the suffering women and children of any land to which we may direct our efforts of relief. The appearance of the quadrennial report that Adjutant General Thomas J. Stewart will Rive up his arduous duties as executive head of the Na tional Guard of Pennsylvania brings to wind a couple of interesting things about military men in the common wealth's service. The adjutant general has been the head and front of the militia system of the State since the Hastings administration, which went | into office in 1895, and is the man 1 longest in continuous service in one , office on the "Hill" except State Super intendent N. C. Scliaeffer. He has been head of the state and national organizations of national guardsmen , anil one of the War Department's militia board. He has brought the Pennsylvania guard to its present state and is looked to for big things in event of trouble with Mexico. Hence the report may be laid away with Its brothers and sisters. The picking of Brigadier-General WilliamG. Price, Jr., of the First Brigade, to sutfeeed him is entirely gratuitous, just as some folks figured in the event of election of a Democrat that Major-General C. Bow. Dougherty, of Wilkes-Barre, would succeed General Stewart. Dougherty ln the youngest of majors-general and his term runs out in the next Gov ernor's administration. Colonel Chris topher T. O'Neill, of Allentown, who commands the Fou'rth Infantry, is the senior colonel of the Guard. He was formerly superintendent of the State arsenal and has been at the head of the Fourth for a long time. The next in seniority is our own Colonel J. B. Hutchison, commanding the Eighth. Speaking of General Dougherty, it is believed that he will again head the inaugural parade. The general was grand marshal of the Tener inaugural parade by virtue of his position and at that time it was generally accepted that a precedent had been established and that he would be the commander of the next similar parade. The ar rangements for the parade will be made by the legislative committee, but before that committee Is namofl the details will be pretty well thought out by the men who have run the pageants for years. A good bit of fuss is being made in Philadelphia about the way rival po litical organizations are going to make demonstrations at the inaugural pa rade to "impress" people, but to folks who have seen inaugural parades for years this is nothing new. When Gov ernor Tener was inaugurated the Vare and McNichol people tried to outdo each other with the number and music of their delegations. When Governor Stuart took office it was the same thing, and back in the time of the Pennypacker inauguration rivals from Philadelphia paraded and had a gor geous time. The rivalry makes a pa rade worth looking at. Men connected with the track main tenance of the Pennsylvania and Head ing systems have given valuable as sistance to the men who have been fighting- fires in the forests lately and in some of the counties in this section tlie trackmen have gone into the woods and beat out fires that appeared to be getting dangerous headway. In many of these cases the lire wardens were not even aware of what was be ing done. The trackmen work in dis tricts where fires are apt to become serious and quick action brings results. John Drew walked into a teachers' institute meeting in the hall of the House of Representatives yesterday afternoon. The actor was taking a stroll through the Capitol, looking at the pictures and the "show apart ments" and suddenly walked into the House, where a lecturer was telling county teachers how to do things. TTt detracted from attention a good bit, but he got away pretty soon. The day that Governor-elect Brum baugh preached his sermon at the Fifth Street Methodist Episcopal Church he was driven back to his hotel along the River Front. "It will be a real pleasure to get up mornings and look out over thl» beautiful water front," said the Doctor when asked what he thought of the city's river improvement scheme. "Do you think that's your fate?" the Doctor was asked. "I don't believe in predestination," smiled Dr. Brumbaugh, "but I shouldn't be surprised. I shouldn't be surprised." Among visitors to the Capitol yes terday were a congressman-elect and one who will retire. The man elected was Daniel F. Lafean, of the York- Adams district, who was elected con gressman-at-largc. The retiring man was Congressman J. N. Langham, of the Indiana- Jefferson - Clarion- Arm. strong district, who will be succeeded by S. Taylor North. Mr. Langham was formerly corporation clerk in the Auditor General's Department. 1 WELL KNOWN PEOPLE 1 —E. W. Patton. senator elect.

Wil liams, Tioga, and Richard J. Baldwin, Delaware, who may be rivals for the speakership of the next House, were at the Capitol to-day, looking around and meeting their friends. Mr. Wil liams has been put forward by many of the men from interior counties and is being Strongly backed. Mr. Bald win, who was one of the active men of the last House, is an out and out candidate and making things lively in his canvass. He enjoys a wide ac quaintance and will be a factor in the caucus. R. P. Habgood, of McKean, who Is also an aspirant for speaker, was ex pected on the "Hill." He has been very busy and has considerable strength. In Philadelphia W. H. Wil son and S. J. Gans are being boosted and Allegheny appears to favor J. F. Woodward for speaker, and if not that, for chairman of the appropria tions committee. Ralph Gibson, who was re-elected in Lycoming county, is an ardent friend of Mr. Williams and has de clared that he would like to see him elected to the speakership. Other northern members are doing quiet work in behalf of the Tioga man. Fred C. Ehrhardt, of Scranton, has not yet declared whether he will be a candidate or not. Ehrhardt is being boomed for chairman of the appro priations committee, of which he was a member in half a dozen sessions. M. M. Garland, of Pittsburgh, elect ed Congressnian-at-large, filed his ex pense account showing that he spent $1,075 in his campaign. Martin Jen nings Caton, Pittsburgh, one of the Democratic candidates for Congress at-large, certified to spending $91.63. According to ofiicial reports reach ing this city to-day W. W. Hindman, Democrat, was elected to the State Senate from the Twenty-eighth dis trict, defeating Josiah Howard, Re publican and a member of the last three Legislatures. Hindman will suc ceed Senator J. K. P. Hall, who rep resented the district for many years and whose health caused him to de cline renominatlon. Dr. Brumbaugh will continue in charge of the Philadelphia schools during December at the request of the Philadelphia Board of Education. His leave of absence expired November 1 and his assistance In getting some matters settled is desired. The doctor had resigned, but the Philadelphia school authorities would not have it that way.

The returns of the Twenty-sfxth Congressional District, where A. Mit chell Palmer was re-elected last time with less than 3,000 plurality, show that the Democratic candidate nominated without Palmer's blessing and consent, polled 15,1X8 votes and beat Hoffman, Republican, by 6,812. According to Atlantic City dis patches in the Philadelphia ledger, rehabilitation of the Republican State organization is under way. The or ganization gave signs that it was in a pretty healthy state last week and just what the reorganization will bring about is not indicated. The Repub lican program will be carried out this year without much attention to the yowling of the people who took them selves so seriously in 1913 that every one thought they amounted to some thing. • In the present political situation in Pennsylvania one has to pause every now and then and think how one George W. Guthrie must smile to him self over in Japan. Mr. Guthrie was the big man of the Democratic reor ganization and became so big in the eyes of the people that certain ambi tious Dembcrats got him out of the road, as will be recalled by readers of the Telegraph. Then they ran for the best offices and—got licked. Mr. Guthrie is tilling a high post and cer tain others are in the depths of defeat.
