QUICK RELIEF FROM CONSTIPATION Get Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets That is the joyful cry of thousands since Dr. Edwards produced Olive Tab lets, the substitute for calomel. Dr. Edwards, a practicing phvsician for 17 years and calomel's old-time enemy, discovered tlie formula for Olive Tablets while treating patients for chronic constipation and torpid livers I)r. Edwards' Olive Tablets do not contain calomel, but a healing, sooth ing vegetable laxative. No griping is the "keynote" of these little sugar-coated, olive-colored tab lets. They cause the bowels and liver to act normally. They never force them to unnatural action. If you have a "dark brown mquth" now and then—a bad breath—a\iull tired feeling—sick headache—torphi liver and are constipated, you'll find quick, sure and only pleasant results from one or two little Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets at bedtime. Thousands take one or two every night just to keep right. Try them. 10c and 26c per box. All druggists. The Olive Tablet Company, Colum bus, O. SWEEPING CKE URGED FOR "RILL" | Economy and Efficiency Commis j sion Presents Numerous Sug gestions For Government WILL BE MUCH STUDIED Next Legislature Will Get the Re port and Will Decide What to Do About It Governor John K. Tenef will trans mit to the Legislature, which meets a 'week from to-morrow, the report of the State Economy and Efficiency Commission, hut the question of legis lation to carry Into effect the sweep ing changes recommended by the com mission will be left to the Incoming administration. The report of the commission offering a plan for improv ing the business methods of the Penn sylvania State government, modern izing many things, abolishing some de partments, consolidating others and creating new ones, a multitude of sug gestions, was made public by the Gov ernor last night. To carry into effect all of the changes recommended by the commis sion would require a couple of consti tutional amendments, a couple dozens of bills and a general overhauling of the business system, some of which would be highly beneficial. The re port, which is, of course, only sugges tive and does not authorize anything, is the work of the Economy and Effi ciency Commission, named as the re sult of the flurry over dual office hold ing in the last session. It was voted $25,000 to make a study of the whole State governmental system, but the Governor cut down the funds to $lO,- 000. Harry S. McDevitt, former as sistant executive controller and statis tician of the State Board of Public Charities, one of the best posted men on Capitol affairs, was named as chair man. Jacob Soffel, Pittsburgh, and Henry D. Jones, Montrose, ex-cashier of the State Treasury, were named with him, but Mr. Jones resigned be cause of pressure of other work, and W. H- Fisher, Brownsville, succeeded him. The work has been under way for six months or more. Legislature Not Touched The report does not touch the Leg islature or the judiciary, saying that it did not have time to go beyond the legislative branch and that the General Assembly methods can be studied dur ing a session. The Department of Internal Affairs, recommended to be abolished in 1913, and the Insurance Department, just reorganized, the De partment of Labor and Industry, the Fire Marshal's office and some other new offices are also passed by. The Hoard of Publie Charities Is recog nized for its work and recommenda tions for facilitating it are given. What will interest Harrisburg peo ple is the recommendation for civil service on Capitol Hill with a retire ment fund or pension system, the drafting of a whole new system of bookkeeping to be uniform for the whole State government, by the Bank ing Commissioner, Auditor General and State Treasurer; hours of 3 to 5 with 9 to 12 on Saturdays and whole Saturday holidays in July and August and semimonthly pay. Instead of monthly, and to be paid direct by the State Treasurer, who is recommended to be given two new clerks and in creases for some now in office. The commission recommends "thaL the next session of the Legislature , make an appropriation for the imme diate erection of an office building 'within the area known as Capitol Park. The idea on the "Hill" is for extension of the three wings toward the extension area. Aim of the Commission In opening its recommendations the report says: "It is universally understood in the business world that to commend abil ity, thereby bringing into business en terprises efficiency, it is necessary to provide compensation commensurate with the responsibilities and duties imposed. This principle, however, is not to any great extent found in the administration of State governments. Well regulated business enterprises in order to prevent waste and duplication of labor undergo a process of reor ganization at least every decade, eliminating unnecessary divisions and departments and centralizing and con solidating others. Such a system is just as important, if not doubly im portant, in the administration of the affairs of a Commonwealth, the neces sity tor which is emphasized because of the establishment by the General Assembly from time to time of new departments, boards and commissions. With this thought in mind the com mission has recommended the consoli dation of certain branches of the State Government, the elimination of others and the creation of new departments with a view to putting State affairs on a sound businesslike basis." < The Recommendations Arc as Follows Civil service is to secure efficiency through Continued employment. Retirement of State employes on half pay who have served twenty-five years or who are over seventy years of age and have served twenty years or more. There are 5,152 positions on the State payroll and the annual pay ment is given as $3,61 3,409.44, being divided as follows: Eleven hundred and sixty-nine positions created by statute, paying $2,000,560; 2,752 by legislative appropriation, paying sl,*- 152,258.90 and 1,232 created by con tingent funds, paying $4 30,590.54. State Board of Examiners, to take place of all except medical board bureau, to have authority to call in experts and to conduct all examina tions. All positions to be created by legis lative enactment; 9 to 5 office hours for all departments; uniform ac counting and bookkeeping; semi monthly pay; payment through treas ury instead of departments an office building in Capitol Park Extension and a branch post office and central mailing and addressing office in the Capitol. All payments to institutions to be made monthly instead of quarterly, is also suggested.

Creation of Department of Publicity "for the exploitation of Pennsylvania's greatness," the Idea being to keep the people informed of what the State is doing by "proper and timely informa tion, etc." Creation of a State Tax Commission and taking from Auditor General all duties In connection with collection I of taxes and contlning him to auditing land accounting, the statement being made that it would "bring about bet ter results In the matter of revenues'* and prevent constant changing of of ficials dealing with such matters. Reorganizing the Attorney General's Department into a Department of Justice whereby all departments will obtain legal service from the depart ment and the practice of different de partments having attorneys through out the State be discontinued. Creation of Revenue and Finance Board to take place of sinking fund, public accounts, private bank license and revenue boards as now consti tuted. Extending State printing contracts from four to six years and publica tion of biennial instead of annual re ports. Abolition of office of health officer of Philadelphia and of State Quaran tine Board and vesting such offices in Department of Health.

Two additional troops of State po lice. A sinking fund or insurance fund instead of insurance policies for all State buildings. Abolition of Soldiers' Orphan Schools Commission, Statutes at Large Commission, Underground and Ele vated Railway Board and Board of State Property. Recommendation for a liberal ap propriation program for improvement of waterways in east and west ends of the State and immediate start on work. Discontinuance of reconstruction of bridges destroyed by Hood or fire, such work to be done by counties. Abolition of the farm counsellors or traveling advisor service and estab lishment of experimental farms in st oad. Legislation to give Bunking Com ■ mlssioner authority to close up all de ! funct or insolvent concerns, doing: •uway with receiverships, i Charts showing the relationship of j officials and employes in the depart ! ments are submitted for the first time. In addition to the forty-three rec ommendations the report says in re gard to dual office holding, "We rec ommend that legislation be enacted combining offices wherever duties are compatible and providing one salary for all services." It is held that the system of making subordinates clerks has been in the main an economical one as to provide one clerk to give sole time to each board would be too expensive. It is also stated, "the commission disapproves of the practice of using the contingent fund to increase the compensation of positions created by statute at a fixed salary. If, present salaries are inadequate they should be referred to the General Assembly for readjustment." The report commends a number of the departments, notably the Depart ment of Health, which is commended as conducted on strictly business prin ciples. It is recommended that this department be given the Livestock Sanitary Board, whose inspectors should have powers enlarged so as to be able to inspect retail meatshops, the dairy and food division with an increase of six inspectors and thatUhe inspection of bakeshops and ice cream plants should be transferred to the Department of Health from Labor and Industry. A liberal appropriation to establish the Bureau of Housing, a larger appropriation for the medical inspection of schools: funds to extend the dispensaries from tuberculosis to other communicable diseases and in crease of the sanitoria at Cresson and Hamburg. The plan for the Department of Conservation calls for a commissioner at $7,500 and chief*, of forestry, game and fish at $3,000 each. The reorganization of the Attorney General's Department interested the Capitol to-day, as such a recommen dation had been anticipated. The re port disapproves of the practice of each department having its own coun sel and says all legal work should be in a department of justice as the out side service has cost as much in a year as the whole Attorney General's office. The staff would be under the proposed plan: Attorney General at $12,000; solicitor general at $7,500; five deputies at $5,000 each, five as sistants at $3,000 each, five stenog raphers, three law clerks, one clerk and a messenger. In the Department of tho Secretary of the Common wealth recommendations for increases of salaries for the corporation bureau are recommended because of the char acter of the work. The Adjutant Gen eral is recommended for some more of the clerical force so badly needed. The Taxation Commission to have charge of all settlement and collec tion of taxes is an old idea. The mem bership would be three, the selections to be made by the Attorney General, State Treasurer and Auditor General. The plan is proposed that the nurs ery inspectors be transferred in win ter to the farmers' Institutes bureau and that thejP be used in place of im ported lecturers. The reason for wip ing out tho farm advisors is that the State College is doing some of the same work. Incidentally, the report while recommending liberality In ap propriations to State College, warns It to devote more attention to agricul ' tural work. The new penitentiary and Warden Francies are highly praised. WATCII FOR SUPERINTENDENT Marietta, Pa., Dec. 28. Foreign residents about Chlckies yesterday be gan Che celebration of their Christmas.
