I PASSENGER RATES WHILE the railroads in raising their passenger rates are onl> following out the recommen dations of the Interstate Com merce Commission, there is danger that they are proceeding in the wrong direction when they make wholesale advances in suburban fares. The sub urban passengers are largely of two classes, the men or women who live In the small town or country and work in the city and those who maintain sum mer cottages in the country. In either case a serious rise in fares will have the effect in the end of decreasing the total receipts of the company, unless past experience counts for nothing. It has been found invariably to be the case that where suburban street car lines have reduced fares, or what Is in most instances equivalent, have enlarged their transfer privileges, a gain in earnings has immediately fol lowed. The suburban steam line is no different in this respect from the sub urban trolley. Indeed, the steam road has maintained its supremacy in many quarters only for the reason that it has been able to operate at less cost to the passenger than the electric line. A sharp advance In suburban rates ■xvill have several tendencies, none of which promise to be of advantage to •the railroad. If the commuting rates are advanced to any considerable ex tent the effect will be to drive many commuters to residence in the city. lAlso, such a condition will, beyond doubt, deter many from building in the suburbs who would otherwise do so. The margin between living expenses and salary In most families is so small that five of ten cents a day difference In car fare becomes an item of prime Importance in the economy of the household and one that enters largely Into the calculations of even the more prosperous. Suburban life has grown because real estate values and rents are less out of the city than in, but if this advantage is nullified by any cause the trend back to the city will become at once apparent. It is unquestionably true that the prosperity of the railroads and the country at large demands that the re ceipts of the railroads be increased, but it Is doubtful if the Interstate Commerce Commission has taken the proper course. The 5 per cent, ad vance in freight rates asked for by the railroads would have fallen largely on about 90 to 95 per cent, of the entire population in such small proportion as to have been felt by very few. The passenger rate increases must be borne by about 10 per cent, of the people, which constitutes the traveling public, and in many Instances will mean real hardship. STEELTON'S STREETS STEELTON is patterning after Har rlsburg in the matter of street Im provements. The borough has now over seven miles of paved thoroughfares, which places it well up among the leaders of towns of its size In this respect. A peculiar feature of street paving is that communities are induced only after great difficulty to begin, but, once started, and the advantages are realized by the people, there is never a moment of hesitation, and nearly always more work Is done than was (contemplated at the outstart. In these days of motor-driven vehicles and heavy traffic no city or town that thinks anything of itself will long : tolerate dirt streets. Steelton and Har ; rieburg are leaders in this respect, but other places are not far behind, and | we must keep right on Improving if we hope to maintain our places. "BOBS" THE death of Lord Roberts brings forth a note of tribute even from Germany. While General Rob erts was not so great a soldier as Kitchener, he was far more popular and In his way Just as efficient. The two are so different in type that It Is difficult to compare them. In the present war Lord Roberts had been a power for the English arms, not only In the splendid service he had rendered in recruiting and In obtaining large sums of needed money by private contribution, but by reason of his con stant appeal to the government to pre pare for what he fully believed was the Intention of Germany to attack England. These preachments of iye paredness had their effect, although not in the desired measure, to such an extent that Great Britain was able to throw an army into the field much earlier than would otherwise have been the case. "Bobs'" died as he had lived —a sol dier In the active service of his country. ! He woa headed straight for the front ' TUESDAY EVENING, 3 when his laat illness overtook him. This is a younfc man's war. The hard ships and responsibilities are tremen dous even for the sturdiest. Lord Roberts undertook more than his en feebled constitution would permit. But his example will doubtless set a new standard for the men of the United Kingdom who because of years or physical defects have regarded them selves as immune from service. LIFE IN THE TRENCHES WITH rain, snow and a wind of blizzard proportions blowing over the war zone In Belgium and France, life on the battle front must be an awful test of human endurance. Dash and -courage are re quired to lead or face a bayonet charge, but to lie In water to the knees, with temperature near freezing and cold food as diet. Is an Infinitely harder task to perform. Picture the trench scene If you can from a four days' description of it given by a private named Cox, now in the hospital with a wounded leg: Then the rain came. In an hour we were Kitting In puddles of wet 'clay. In three hours the bottoms of the trenches were covered with water. You'd oughta heard us cough at night. It sounded like a toober cure. We barked like a dog show. There was no protection for any of us. There was no way of get ting dry. For the four dayß we lay "in these filthy trenches, soaked to the skin. Here and there red, oily streaks on the rain-pitted water in the trench bottom told of a wounded man. I held up my wounded bunkle, shot through the lungs, for four hours before he died. If he had fallen forward he would have drowned in the mud and water. Doubtless the enlisted men of both sides will sit in the freezing: puddles as long as their officers command. Doubt less, too, many of them whom bullets have not touched will never leave these same trenches. Winter will claim as many victims, possibly, as the rifle. But of those who do survive, what? What marks will such an experience leave upon the men who are enduring it? Our own Civil War pension list is the answer. Hundreds of bent and tottering veterans of that conflict would have been straight and sturdy old men to-day had it not been for just such hardships as the soldiery of the German and the allied armies are undergoing now. TECHNICAL EDUCATION THE Harrisburg School Board has undertaken an important work in its plans to make the Tech nical High School equipment available for boys who work in day time but desire to study mechanics in the evening. The rapid growth of the enrollment of the Technical School is an indication of the large need it fills in the community, and it is right that the school should be made to work as many hours a day as it can be of ser vice to the youth of the community. Not sufficient attention has been given in America to manual training. In this whole country, according to the investigations made by the Com mission on National Aid to Vocational Education, there are fewer trade schools than exist in the now unfor tunate little German kingdom of Ba varia, with a population but little greater than that of New York city. Until the outbreak of the European war more workers were being trained at public expense in the city of Munich than in all the larger cities of the United States put together, although these American cities include a popu lation of 12,000,000. In a democratic country the educa tion of Its citizens Is one of the most Important functions of the state. A worker who is not trained to work Is not educated. Neither Is he educated if he is trained only to work. The state alone can give him the broadest training possible in the given time and without secriflelng the training for his job. From every side comes the Insistent demand that this education be given. It comes from the labor unions and from the manufacturers' associations, from the social worker, from the un trained man who wants his son to get a chance he never had, and from the untrained woman who wants her daughter to develop far beyond her self. We in Harrisburg are fortunate in having a model school of the kind and we owe it to the boys who cannot remain at study until graduation to give them its advantages at the only time they are able to avail themselves of them, in the evenings. NO HIGHER TRIBUTE O better tribute could be paid to Nthe memory of the late Maurice C. Eby, former mayor of Har risburg, than the proposed erec tion of a memorlul drinking fountain for horses and dogs. The beasts of burden had no stauncher friend than Mavor Eby. For many years he was connected with the work of the Society for the Pre vention of Cruelty to Animals In this city and by his own personal work he procured the passage of laws com pelling owners to be kind and con siderate of their horses. Ills entire life was one of kindness to the animal world. AS THE LEAVES FALL NOW that the cold blasts of winter are beginning to tax the strength of even the hardiest, scores of the very aged people of the city will fall "as the leaves." So It has al ways been and so It will always be. Having served their day and genera tion there comes that "call home" Just as the foliage of summer Is called back to the bosom of mother earth after the long hot days of summer. Some approach this period of life with Joy; some with dread. And here lies the lesson for the youth of the land, the men and women of middle age, and even those whose hair Is now silver. Those lives which for three score and ten years have veritably breathed the "God-life," which have been at peace w.ith their fellows and them selves; have brightened and gladdened the hearts of those about them by their sweetness, sincerity and purpose —these are the golden leaves. Those lives which consistently have been warp and woof of telflshness; which have scorned God and man; have made the world a darker rather than a brighter place In which to live—these are the seered and crumpled leaves. "Whether your "golden age" be rich and glowing; or whether It be seered and crumpled—depends upon your daily living. I EVENING CHAT I The Engineers' Society of Pennsyl vania, which is co-operating with the State Department of Labor and Indus try in the Industrial Welfare and Effi ciency Conference at the Capitol and which organized the safety exhibition, possesses a record for doing things that is gratifying to its members and to the city as well. The society was organized less than ten years ago and had Its first home in the Kreidler building at Second and Walnut streets, the first thing in whicli Its members had a part being encouragement of municipal Improvement campaigns. Then it moved to the Gilbert building. In Market street, and became so large and influential that it was able through the stimulus given by several notable engineers living here to get the Bailey mansion as its clubhouse. The society was instrumental in having the first exhibition of safety and other devices ever held here, the car barns of the traction company, then Just completed, being the site. It aided in bringing two conventions of engineers of the State to this city and was behind a general meeting of technical men here a few years ago which attracted na tional attention. Last year It united to bring about the tlrst welfare and efficiency conference and this year by a happy conincldence its president is also the Commissioner of Labor and Industry, Dr. John Price Jaclistyi. Dr. Jackson, by the way, is the son of a man who was connected with the Pennsylvania Steel Company. He was Josiah Jackson, a noted educator and mathematician. Dr. Jackson went to school at Kennett Square and grad uated twenty-five years ago from State College, where he played football and also made a record us a student. He has numerous degrees and is a mem ber of more learned societies than he can remember, has written bodies, or ganized the famous department of electrical engineering at State College, turned out some cracker jack students and did a lot of other things In addi tion to creating the Department of Labor and Industry. The Governor let him organize it the way he thought best and they say that politics does not go there. One of the Capitol Park squirrels has figured out a visiting place that is good for a series of meals during the day. This squirrel wanders far from the park and has taken to perching on top of one of the peanut stands In the central part of the city. He hops up and sits appealingly and It is mighty seldom that he does not draw custom for the peanut man and something to munch for himself. The passing of the Lochiel rolling mill and the prospective sale of its site and the famous or notorious Lochiel row, as you may choose to designate it according to remembrance, calls to mind that the Lochiel furnace is the only one of the old-time industries left in that region. To the south the great plant of the Elliott-Fisher company and the electric company's station have taken the places of the old mills as industries, but there are a good many who recall the days when I-ochiei was a bustling part of the city and Its fires illumined the skies for miles around. The rolling mill was torn away a few years ago, following the removal of the old store, the familiar mill office and the old "Hob- Nail ' and other boarding houses which were homes of puddlers and iron workers who were noted through the state for their skill. Lochiel furnace dates from 1872 and was operated by the Lochiel Furnace Company, oft and on, until the nineties, when it was sold to the Pennsylvania. Steel Company under whose ownership it has known three periods of activity. Whether it will ever run again is a question. The Lochiel rolling mills have a his tory that is of great interest to the stu dent of the iron trade. The mills were built originally to roll rails and were among the first in the country to make them for the general trade. The Dull family was prominently identified with the management for a time. In the nineties the control passed to the late , Neal ' a member of a family widely known in the iron business, and continued under his ownership until the fires were drawn for the last time. Lochiel mills had a large trade and sold bars for a time to British plants. Whatever might be said about the turbulent character of some of the people who may have lived in Lochiel row at one time or another, the man ner In which they aided the victims of the terrible wreck In May, 1905, liter ally Riving the clothes off their backs and the blankets from their beds, won the commendation of the whole city and more than one person accustomed to refinements had occasion to remem ber the assistance given in those humble homes and the succor which was extended was in many instances never requitted. 1 WELL KNOWN PEOPLE 1 —Congressman A.

AN EVENING THOUGHT A merely fallen enemy may rise again, but the reconciled one 1B truely vanquished.—Schiller. V HARJRISBURG TELEGRAPH FLYNN WILL LEAD iIISEJEMOCRITS Elk Veteran Will Be the Chief of the Minority in the Coming Legislative Session RINGMASTERS GET BUSY Plan to Push a Lot of Legislation That They Want and to Call It the People's Representative John M. Flynn. of Elk county, the senior Democratic member of the House, will be the Democratic nominee for the speaker ship, If he wants It. The member ship of the Democratic line-up In the next House will not have any John T. Matts, E. Lowry Humes or E. R. Bensons to disturb it with reorganiz es' schemes and will probably get more accomplished. Mr. Flynn has served since 1905 and has been a good strong legislator with no time for frills. It will develop upon him to call the caucus. Representative Richard J. Baldwin claims to be making considerable hay in his campaign for the speakership and says that he has strong support in the country and in the two larggs counties. Baldwin Is a hard worker and always optimistic. His friends say that the fact that Thomas H. Garvin, the chief clerk, comes from Delaware, too, will not militate against him because Garvin is a fixture In the House and Is needed to run it right. Up to date the Republicans men tioned for the honor are: Allegheny—J. F. Woodward and A. C. Stein. Delaware—R. J. Bal'dwin. Jefferson—H. I. Wilson. Lackawanna—F. C. Ehrhardt. McKean —R. P. Habgood. Philadelphia—W. H. Wilson and S. J. Gang. Tioga—G. W. Williams. The Washington party strength will consist of one Senator, J. L. Smith, Crawford-Mercer, and one member, T. B. H. Brownlee, Washington. The Socialist strength will be the same as in 1911 and one more than in 1913, consisting of James H. Maurer. A good bit of quiet smiling is going on in the western part of the State over the efforts being made to create the impression that there is going to be a battle organized at once against the Penrose leadership. When the Senator was re-elected the last time the center of the campaign to unhorse him was shifted from Philadelphia, where it was virulent about 1900, to Scranton. Now it is supposed to be in Pittsburgh. With Penrose more strongly entrenched than ever and elected by direct vote of the people it does not seem very plausible that men with whom he has been aligned would be apt to start anything, and now, especially. Western Pennsylvania Democrats are commencing to snarl at each other over the appraisership at Pitts burgh. Secretary Bryan has been trying to put over George W. Acklln, one of the faithful ones who did not get any pie. Some of the Democrats are boasting of H. C. Staggers, a Greene county reorganizes while one wing of the Westmoreland Democ racy, which is shot to pieces about as bad as that of any county in the State is yelling for G. W. Deeds, of Ligonier. In spite of the fact that they have less than half a company of members the Democratic State ringmasters committee, which tried to jam through a lot of legislation last year, is going up to demand the adoption of certain bills in the name of the people. This game, which is planned to make capital for 1916, will serve to keep the Democratic machine in the public eye and to furnish some of the disorganized reorganizes' news papers with topics. Just how they are going to demand the legislation in the name of the people in view of the recent vote is hard to see. The Wash ington party, which has two mem bers in the whole General Assembly, will also solemnly introduce some bills for the purpose ol keeping itself alive. Reports that Dr. J. H. Krelder, Washington party nominee for Con gress, has been reappointed to a job in the Auditor General's Department, are untrue. The Philadelphia Record to-day' says: "Close friends of Mr. Palmer de clared that he was in no sense a seeker after a Job from President Wilson, and was particularly disinclined to retire from politics by entering the District of Columbia judiciary. On behalf of Mr. Morris, it was declared that ho was equally unwilling to resign as State chairman, and thus desert his allies in the reorganization movement. While the Palmer-Morris leadership only recently provided fresh sorrow for the Democrats of the State, the reorganizes plan to retain their grasp on the party machinery until 1916 at least, with the intention of controlling the Pennsylvania delegation to the next national convention. It is gen erally expected, however, that they will at the time face the opposition of a Democracy interested in party suc cess Instead of faction triumphs. At the present time the reorganizers are well In control of the State committee, and no serious effort to dislodge either Palmer or Morris is regarded as feasible." I POLITICAL SIDELIGHTS —Reading people have started a boom for Ell M. Rapp, superintendent of Berks schools, for a place In the Department of Public Instruction. —Raymond MacNeille, the new mu nicipal court judge of Philadelphia, was sworn in yesterday. —Friends of Governor-elect Martin O. Brumbaugh are prepnring to give him a dinner in Philadelphia early In January. —Johnstown is to the front again with a new home rule bill which would set aside the Clark third class city commission government bill. —Congressman Carr has not yet opened his contest of the election of his rival. JUST .% FEW REASONS WHY BAN WAS PUT ON HUNTING Special to The Telegraph Mauch Chunk. Pa., Nov. 17. The Lehiuh Coal and Navigation Company is enforcing the trespass law, and there will bo no more hunting on the com pany's extensive property. The com pany was compelled to take this step, as hunters shot the insulators oft some of the towers carrying high tension wires from the big Hauto plant and the towers were alive with electricity. Otner hunters shot the signal boxes down on the trolley, while others threw matches away after lighting clgarots, setting the woods on fire.

BOOKS and HI TREITSCIIItK IN THE ORIGINAL Heinrlch von Treltschke has so far been known to us only at second hand. The historian-philosopher, whose views on world politics and the Teutonic mis sion have gained such wide acceptance among Germans, has been extensively quoted by General Bernhardi and every other writer on the present con ilict, but no English translations of his works have- appeared 011 this side of the Atlantic. As it Is manifestly unfair-and misleading to Judge Pan- Germanism and its foremost disciple from scattering quotations, readers will welcome the announcement of Frederick A. Stokes Company that the cream of Treltschke's important "Lec tures on Politics" will be published be fore the end of November at seventy five cents. GLEASON UNDER FIRE The New York Times of October 26 printed a remarkable war story from the pen of Philip Glbbs In which he refers to "Mr. Gleason, an Amer ican," who has been identified as Ar • thur H. Gleason, Yale, 1901, author of NOVEMBER 17, 1914. "The Spirit of Christmas," "Love, Home and the Inner Life," and a well known magazine writer. Close friends of Mr. Oleason recently heard from his mother that he had gone to Belgium with an English hospital corps in the capacity of stretcher-bearer but nothing of his adventures around Ghent and Antwerp, where, according to Mr. Glbbs, "he has proved himself to be a man of calm and quiet courage at a critical moment, always ready to take great risks in order to bring in a wounded man." Glbbs accompanied Gleason on an expedition Into Dlx mude for wounded while the town was tumbling about their ears from Ger man artillery fire.
