Here in Harrisburg there is much unfinished work that might be pushed along until late into the winter and so long as weather conditions will en able men to work outdoors. City Com missioner Taylor, for Instance, the head of the Department of Parks and Playgrounds, has a force of men em ployed in the rough grading of the river slope, and, with the further ex cavation for the subway in South Second street and the new union freight station, there will be still greater activity. Hundreds of men, probably, can be given work for a few weeks at least. The materials from these excavations will run into thousands of cubic yards, and inas much as the grading of the river slope from Paxton street northward will re quire many thousands of yards, it is obvious that employment on this work is the part of wisdom by the muni cipal officials. Similar activities can be and doubt less will be employed in the work along the Cameron Parkway, in the completion of the work along Paxton creek, and might even extend to the removal of obstructions along the river wall. This could be done by the use of flats and derricks at the present stage of the river. There is also considerable street grading to be done and we have ho doubt that private contractors and corporations contemplating expansion of any sort will co-operate with the municipal officials in providing work for those who need it. The same policy is being pursued by other cities of the country. We quote from the New York Sun: We take it for granted that the formidable task to be accomplished by humane and sensible men in the relief of the workless and the un fortunate this winter Is understood by all The coincidence of distress in Europe and industrial depres sion here have produced conditions ■ of want and sintering that, if not unprßcedented, are unparalleled in the experience of most of us. They appeal not less to the reason than to the conscience, and it Is incon ceivable that any man not cursed with a miser's heart has withheld his decision to help, to the last ex tremity of his means, in their pal liation. Such being the case, the disposi tion to help being firmly based on a realization of the great need that exists, every counsel of wisdom, prudence and humanity urges that i« those who can assist should as -* sume their privilege of obligation, . not at some future date, not at the last allowable moment, but in the present hour, while the possibility of prevention still exists, and the mere sustenance of demoralization is not the sole practicable end to be attained. Nor should it be over looked that the earlier the habit of giving is established the larger the gifts will be. Once the practice of sharing a surplus with those who have nothing Is indulged in the elasticity of the pecketbook becomes a matter of profound amazement . and sincere gratitude. ■- ' Temporary contraction of the fingers is withholding from the channels of charity to-day a large sum already designated for itß pur poses. Those fingers should be re laxed. and the hands that it is designed eventually to open should be distributing their succor now. Chicago, Philadelphia and other sities throughout tho country are pre paring extensive programs of public work for the winter. Instead of shut > ling down these operations, as is usual at this time of the year, arrange ments are now being made to con tinue the operations as long as the weather will permit. Harrisburg will be well up front in pursuing this wise policy. Public funds cannot be better utilized than in providing employment for honest workingmen thrown into idleness at the opening of winter. At all events the White House has been gracious enough to thank the troops who made the needless sacrifice of duty at Vera Cruz. , THURSDAY EVENING, OFF WITH THEIR HE ADM COLONEL GEORGE HARVEY In his recent analysis of the results of the election Intimated that President Wilson would be justified in recommending to Congress the abolition of the Interstate Com merce Commission. In view of what has transpired during the last year, and by reason of its continued arbi trary and Inconceivable course of ac tion, Colonel Harvey will have plenty of company in his attitude toward this remarkable body. On top of an Administration war tax in time of peace and in further aggravation of repeated offenses, this commission, absolutely irresponsive to public sentiment, persists in its see sawing and delay at the expense of the business of the country. Referring to its latest performances, the Phila delphia Ledger says: What was virtually a direct com mand Issued by the Interstate Com merce Commission has resulted in an increase of passenger fares all 6ver the eastern and central terrl ritory. At the very same time by a strolce of the pen the commis sion suspends an Increase in freight rates in the western district. If this all-powerful body had de liberately set out to. create the greatest possible annoyance to the country ft could have chosen no better method of accomplishing that result than Is found in Its recent procedures. The Interstate Com merce Commission has stubbornly stood between 100,000,000 people and their only chance of a quickly revived business of all kinds. Instead of bothering with the In dependence of the Filipinos, who are not ready for independence and may involve the United States in Oriental difficulties, the President might better, in his message to Congress next week, urge the prompt repeal of the act cre ating the Interstate Commerce Com mission. When men appointed for cer tain specific duties Involving the public welfare so far forget the real purpose of their appointment as to constitute themselves a supreme power it is about time they should suffer official decapi tation. General DeWet has been captured. Case of another fighter falling to "come back." PARTY UNIFICATION THE little band of Progressives in session at Chicago yesterday represents the pitiful remnant of what in 1912 had all the ap pearance of a formidable political organization. Not even a message from the erstwhile chieftain of Oyster Bay came to cheer the dreary assem blage. And the committeemen in at tendance pretended, at least, to be frightened out of their boots by the shadow of ex-President Taft, cast across the gathering place as a possi ble Republican Presidential candidate in 1916. No harmony with the Republican party is possible with Taft in the field, the Progressives told each other. The truth is that the name of the de feated candidate for a second term was dragged into the conference merely for the purpose of giving the leaders an excuse to declare against unification with the old party, which is rapidly going on through the in strumentality of the rank and file and against the wishes and endeavors of those who still delude themselves with the thought that the Progressive party still possesses the elements of success. .Tohnson, Pinchot, Perkins, Flinn and others have no use for the Re publican party because they realize that to return they must do so as privates in the ranks. Their days of temporary leadership are rapidly drawing to a close in the party of their own making and their generalship has been so fraught with disaster to them selves and their followers that there can be no excuse for Republicans ac cepting them as advisors or lieuten ants. They have been thoroughly dis credited at the polls and it would be flying in the face of popular senthnent for the party which they tried to scuttle to consider at this time any terms for their surrender. With the rank and file of the Pro gressive party it is different. The Re publican organizations, State and na tional, are proceeding along liberal lines. Every effort is being made to reconcile party management and party platforms with the views of that large percentage of voters who regis tered their objections to the old order by temporarily leaving the reservation two years ago. That the rank and file have recognized and approved of what has been going on under the direction of this wise leadership is evident by the wonderful back to the party move ment that swept the country in No vember. The unification of the Republican and Progressive parties is proceeding along natural and effective lines. The Progressive bosses need not trouble themselves to declare for or against It. They may rave against it to their hearts' content, but their cries will be as futile as were those that pre ceded the recent elections. The cantain of the Emden seems to have been as great a Joker as he was a fighter. AS TO THE FORESTER WHILE the friends <Jf the Shade Tree Commission law are somewhat disappointed over a compromise measure of the City Council, creating a forester for Harrlsburg and defining his powers, there would seem to be no occasion for the feverish criticism of the mo tives of those who supported the for ester proposition. Inasmuch as a majority of the City Council determined to try the forester plan as against the commission idea, It Is hardly fair to accuse those who voted for this measure of corporation control and Indifference to the city's Interests. As has been indicated by the Tele graph in previous references to this subject, It Is only fair and Just that the proposed forester, when appoint ed, shall have the support and co operation of the people, and rant and criticism because the City Council did not adopt the Shade Tree Commission law will serve no good purpose at this time. All that the public de mands, and which has been pledged. Is the appointment of a thoroughly competent forester. 1 EVENING CHAT I The announcement last night that the Democratic State headquarters would be located in Philadelphia here after and that next week the head quarters would be closed and the flag taken down, the office force dismissed and the key given up marks the pass ing out of Harrisburg as the site of the council fire of the militant Democracy until the next outbreak occurs and the headquarters are taken away from Philadelphia. Harrisburg has been the headquarters of the Democracy since 1892. It was the seat of the party or ganization here years and years ago when the Democrats used to'elect gov ernors and legislators, but went to Philadelphia, occasionally going to Pittsburgh or some other place as the whim of the chairman served. In the eighties the headquarters were located in Philadelphia and James Kerr man aged tho second Pattlson campaign from there. Soon after headquarters came to Harrisburg and the flag was put out in the old Mechanics' Bank building. There John M. Garman, Charles P. Donnellv, William T. Creasy, James K. P. Hall, John 8. Rilling, D. J. Driscoll and others down to Arthur G. Dewalt conducted party afTalrs and even after the Insurrection of 1911 headquarters were maintain ed while the reorganization faction occupied the suite in the Spooner building, which ig. to be given up. The 'Old Guard" closed its headquarters when it was beaten in 1912 and George W. Guthrie reigned as chairman alone and undisputed in the Spooner build ing. At the time much was made of the importance of maintaining the headquarters at the Capital City, the center of the State, where men would not be influenced by large city politi cians and the like. State Chairman Roland S. Morris has always main tained a sort of headquarters at Phil adelphia and now he has had his long desire and the headquarters flag will float from South Broad street and Democrats will no longer stumble up three flights of stairs after the eleva tor has quit running. The city has not even the Washington party headquar ters now and Dr. B. E. P. Prugh, who runs the Prohibition State committee, has the only real headquarters in Har risburg. These are housecleaning days about the legislative chambers and commit tee rooms and things are commencing to assume an ante-session appearance that attracts much attention from the crowds of visitors who are continual ly streaming through the building and desiring to sit in the seat of their sena tor or their home member of the low er house. An Immense amount of work has to be done to prepare for the legislature. All of the rooms have to be cleaned with machinery and the furniture gone over. The latter item is well attended to, the carpenters having been required to repair practi cally every desk in the House after the [Session closed. Now the heavy cur tains have been taken down and are being "scrubbed" by vacuum brushes and floors are being fairly polished by heavy cleaners. All of the furniture Is being rubbed down and the brass work and ornaments are shining like gold. By the time the lawmakers as semble everything will be In splc and span shape. The committee rooms will be moved around a bit and some of the committees will have to double up. the rooms having been taken for branches of the State government. Some of these will be moved into storerooms in the "attic" and others will go into rented offices or into build ings in the Capitol Park extension which have been made available for use until they have to be torn down. Superintendent Sampel B. Rambo has provided tons of supplies for the solons lard things have all been prepared for | a prompt opening of the session and a short period of work. Talking about the legislature, there will be no "committees on commit tees" in the coming session, such as there was last year. In the 1913 ses sion's opening days the members' names were handed to a committee, which was named by the chambers right after the presiding officers were chosen. These committees struggled with the problems for two weeks and the members were anything but pleas ed with what was done. Its back to ways of former days. Among visitors to the city yesterday was Senator-elect Plymouth W. Sny der, of Hollidaysburg. Mr. Snyder was a member of the House for several sessions and took an active part In debates, especially in the local option battles. He will represent the Hunt ingdon-Blair district, having been elected to succeed Senator Enoe A. Jones. An official police docket from the Pittsburgh police department was sent to Harrisburg yesterday. It is in charge of Captain of Police Joseph P. Thompson, and will be used in the trial of Edward Smith charged with murder, now in progress. The police docket shows that Smith, who said he was from Baltimore, was arrested at the Pennsylvania railroad station at Pittsburgh on the morning of Decem ber 21. 1913, at 2 o'clock by Special Officer Joseph Thompson. Smith had in his possession $2,827.15. Smith was subsequently turned over to County Detective James Walters and returned to Harrisburg. Ex-Judge James M. Sliull, of New Bloomfleld, was one of the Juniata ] Valley people In the city yesterday. He was here on business at the Capi tol. 1 WELL KNOWN PEOPLE 1 —Captain W. 11.

FUSS OVER Mill Relocation of Windmill in Philadel phia Is Not Likely to Meet With Great Approval MORRIS HAS HIS OWN WAY NOW Democratic Congressmen Blaming the Democratic Machine For Their Defeats Some men prominent in the councils of the reorganization faction of the Democratic State committee outside of Philadelphia will likely roar over the abandonment of headquarters in this city and the moving of the machine shop to Philadelphia. It is said that some of thfte Democratic leaders who lined up with the reorganization ele ment have recalled the fact that one of the prime reasons for keeping head quarters here was to get them away from the Philadelphia Influences. They aro now saying that Morris wants to have the State headquarters as an aid in his partisan rows In Philadelphia. Morris last night said that Philadel phia would be the whole works after December 10 and that the headquarters here would be closed up. F. T. Keenan will be resident secretary at Philadel phia. This city has heen Democratic headquarters since 1892 and it means that someone Is tired paying bills for rent. —Democratic leaders are planning to attract some attention during the next legislative session and the pub licity bureau will likely be maintained to sound' clarion calls In behalf of legislation which the leaders will try to say the people demand, notwith standing the fact that they were beaten on their own carefully built platform Inst month and that hoth branches are heavily Republican after a decisive battle. —William Flinn, E. A. Van Valken burg and A. Nevln Detrich are in Chi cago attending the Progressive post mortem. Mr. still maintains that the Washington party will bfc a. factor In State contests hereafter. He is real serious about it. too. —A. C. Stein, of Pittsburgh, plans to bring his boom for Speaker to the eastern counties this month. —A Washington dispatch states that the Democratic congressmen who were defeated in the last election say upon their return that the campaign was mismanaged by the Pennsylvania leaders. Congressman Warren Worth Ballej' is quoted as follows: "I am of the opinion that the party was some what unfortunate in presenting the issues in the late campaign. But there is no disposition to mrike war on the organization merely on what I regard as an error of judgment. None of us is infallible. Some of our leaders banked too heavily on the prohibition sentiment In our State: they were dis posed to lay too much stress on the personality of Senator Penrose: they were possibly overeager to attract in dependent or disgruntled Republicans, while taking too little account of how the rank and file of the Democrats might feel about certain issues in tht raising of which they had not been consulted." —James F. Woodward, re-elected member of the House from the McKeesport district, was hero to-day for a short time and disclaimed hav ing any boom for Speaker. He said he would be glad to be chairman of the appropriations committee, but was silent on the subject of the speaker ship. —Richard J. Baldwin is ardently boomed for the speakership by a friend writing in the Delaware County Record at Media. Mr. Baldwin has been actively pushing his candidacy In the eastern counties. His friends are pointing to his record as a stalwart. —Auditor General Powell Is having some time to get the Philadelphia pri mary bills settled. —Congressman Casey spent $3,000 to be re-elected. sdl BOOKS and rfa M '•The Ex-Seminarian; or, Plain Tales of Plain People," is the title of a book Just issued from the Mission Press, Techny, 111., whose author is Will W. Whalen, of St. Edward's, Shamokln, also the author of the 'Lily of the Coal Fields" and "Twilight Talks to Tired Hearts.' This work is dedicated to the professors of St. Mary's College and Seminary, Emmitsburg, Md., and is a compilation of short stories. Richard G. Badger, publisher, 194 Boylston street, Boston, has Just issued from the Uorham Press, "Mat Good win's Book,' which is an Intimate and permanent history of the American stage for the past forty years by the greatest living actor. It is believed to be the most remarkable autobiography ever written. We can think of no actor better qualified to put in enduring form his memoirs than Nat Goodwin Thre is hardly any actor or actress on the American stage whom Nat Good win has not known personally and of them he talks entertainingly with many an anecdote. His own life has been full of vicissitudes. He has acted comedy and tragedy on the stage and he has seen comedy and tragedy in his own personal career. His marriage relations have been much gossiped about. His financial experiences have been exploited, his personal career has been full of deep interest. Of all'these things he writes—and writes with his own pen—straight from the heart The book has many rare portraits from the collection of Mr. Goodwin. T. R. A PRIVATE CITIZKV , [From the New York Sun.] Armageddon, or what is left of It reconvenes to-day at Chicago. If the great leader of the embattled host Is absent from the gathering, the reason Is well understood by the Bull Moose legions as well as by the rest of the world. Theodore Roosevelt Is not at this time in politics. He Is for the moment a private citizen of the prl vatest sort. We are not disposed to regard this somewhat unusual phe nomenon as evidence of extinction or even of total eclipse; it seems to par take more of the character of efficient preparedness. Our own unsolicited opinion, a private opinion of the prl vatest sort, Is that Colonel Roosevelt's next reappearance will be in the old familiar act of issue-snatching; the victim once more, as so many times be fore, being the unfortunate Mr. W. J, Bryan. We venture the prediction that the next snatched Issue by which Colonel Roosevelt Is to profit politically at the expense of Mr. Bryan will be "the en actment of Prohibition In the funda mental law by means of an amendment of the Federal Constitution. » .

REMINDED. One cold winter's day, early in the morning, the gasworks at Leeds caught fire. A horrible explosion was imminent. The terrified crowd watch ed the conflagration from afar. Would the fearful disaster be com municated to every house in the city? At last a messenger came, crying that the peril was over. One man had saved the city. Ho had crept down a red-hot passage. He had reached an iron door, white with the terrific heat. jHe had shut the door and he had perished before he could return. "It reminds us of the Saviour, don't if" I said a rough man in the vast crowd lat the funeral. "He died like you to save us from destruction."—The Christian Herald. MAKING TEX THOUSAND MATCH ES A MINUTE. Simple and insignificant as a match is, its manufacturer is a complicated and elaborate process that can be carried on commercially only by means of a succession of ingenious machines and devices that must work at all times with the utmost preci sion and delicacy. Recent improvements in the pro cess of making square matches make it possible to turn out matches from a single dipping machine at the rate of more than 600,000 an hour, and a green log Is made into matches and packed for shipment In less than two hours. The process is fully described, with numerous illustrations, in the December Popular Mechanics Maga zine. I A FACE AT CHRISTMAS A white face at the glowing window- A face of Failure, weary and ill scarred; Nor can the merry holly shut it out, Nor the bright Tree, flame-dressed and candle-starred. Eyes at our window, hearts! Nor all the light Of all our wicks can touch them into gleam; Deep in their dusk a soul with empty lamp Kneels at the crumbled altar of a Dream. • How can I give the Gifts of cloth and gold ? How give but dress who might glvo paradise? My brother's hurt, laid at my door, is mine— Myself In judgment startles from his eyes. Myself and more! Myself and all men's selves. Bound in that look of his—that weary nod; Though one bruised soul shall don the world's defeat. Yet all souls share It....And the sharing-'s God! A white face at my threshold! Fling the door— A house withholden is a house for sin! Call to the Tramp....Tet hark, what voice replies? What light leaps up, what Shining Guest comes in? —Dana Burnet, in HARPER'S MAGAZINE for December.

Political offenders in parts of Mongolia are punished by lifetime Im molation in cotflnlike boxes stored away in dark dungeons. The horrors of this punishment are graphically portrayed In the cover design of the December Popular Mechanics Maga zine. The boxes are only large enough to contain a man. There Is but one aperture, and that no longer than his head. His hands are manacled, and twice a day attendants bring food and drink, which are placed in the shackled hands outstretched through these round windows, which are his only communication with the world. Many highly educated Chinese, so it is said, are imprisoned here. An electric sawmill at Worcester, Mass., whicl\ applies modern methods to Ice harvesting, Is described, with illustrations, in the December Popular Mechanics Magazine. The plant comprises two gangs of saws with suitable devices for controlling the movement of the ice, as well as for skidding It up the long incline to the ice house. The sawmill is located within a few rods of the ice house and derives its power from a nearby electric power plant. NEWSPAPER DEVELOPMENT [From the Editor and Publisher.] One hundred years ago to-morrow the London Times was printed on a steam power press, the first newspaper to be so printed. John Walter's paper at the time had a circulation of only Shoes For Men at .a Price Men Like to Pay The prices of fine shoes for men are anything from one to , steen dollars —here they are $3 tO to $6, according to the quality of the leather and the amount of workmanship put into them. ▼ |-^ If oue style does not strike your tl Uu« X • Ollvll U fancy there are others that will Q/\r\ A W K + Q*. —there's a shoe here that will *SUU/\ IVIcirKCL ul# fit and please any man. 4,000, every copy of which had previ ously been printed by hand. The new press had a speed of 1,100 copies .an hour. Perhaps the most impressive way of indicating the development of news paper production is to point out the fact that to-day we have presses that will turn out 300,000 copies an hour.
