FEB. 13 NO DOL'BT ABOUT HIM THE promptness with which Gov ernor Brumbaugh yesterday met the situation created by application of a tenant of a Slate property for liquor license only clinches the new Governor's stand on the liquor question and ought to satis fy anyone who has had any lingering doubts about what the doctor is going to do. There were some at the beginning of the legislative session who believed that Governor Brumbaugh was going to make a stage light for local option. Those who have noted the calls of members of the House at the Execu tive department lately and have heard of the plain talks between the execu tive and the members, have come to tho conclusion that the Governor is in earnest. The manner in which some lawmakers are commencing to hear from the folks at home is only another indication that the Governor means business. Now it happens that a man who has occupied, under the terms of a cus tomary transfer in Capitol Park ex tension district, a property used as a saloon for many years wants to put Father Penn in the position of land lord of a tavernkeeper at the time the licenses are annually reviewed by the courts. The Governor says he does not approve and that he means to see what the Attorney General can do un der the circumstances to prevent tho sal/ o^'liquor on property of the Com monwealth. The Brumbaugh position appears to be rather firmly taken. RKMUXERATIVE AND EFFICIENT THE summary of the finances of the State's Dairy and Food Di vision for eight years, published to-day, shows that a branch of the State government may not only be efficient and energetic in carrying out the duties required of it, but at the same time be a source of revenue to the Commonwealth. When the present Dairy and Food Commissioner took hold of the office the income it yielded to the public treasury for the licenses it supervised nnd the prosecutions it brought for vio lation of the pure food acts was $20,000 short of what it cost to operate it. At that time the oleomargarine sys tem in the State had a good many loose, ends and farmers were com plaining that tho product was being sold openly for pure dairy butter. In addition, there were some places where the laws did not facilitate thorough inspection. Tho statement for the year just closed shows conclusively that the acts passed in tho last few sessions have mado for public welfare by clearly establishing what may not be done; that the oleomargarine license system is being worked out logically and is now a source of protection to the dairy interests and of income to the State and that the enforcement of the police power of the State can not only be done honestly, but that its adminis tration may be made profitable to tho Commonwealth as well. WISE MH. EDISON Thomas a. Edison, who gave to newspaper reporters a little anniversary interview on the oc casion of his sixty-eighth birth day, laid stress upon a truth that has been apparent to everybody save men who have tho most responsibility in the matter when he said that the past three national administrations have made the mistake of encouraging the passage of too many laws affecting business; "too many laws—and too many visits from the Attorney Gen eral's office," to use his own words. It is a curious fact, and one that will no doubt cause future historians much puzzling thought, that the law making bodies of the country have continued for years to enact legis lation directly in opposition to the views of public opinion. iMembers of Congress and of State legislatures have been tho only persons to believe that more laws for the regulation of busi ness are necessary. Workmen, labor leaders, editors and businessmen al most unanimously have urged that the good of the country and its future progress and prosperity lie not in the making and enforcing of new laws, hut in permitting business to move along with as few restrictions as pos sible. . IjC<l by the President, Congress has been declaring repeatedly that the large majority of th* businessmen of the oountry arc aud hon- SATURDAY EVENING est, and at tho same time have been acting precisely as though they be lieved that every man in business is a thief and a trickster, ready to tako advantago of his neighbor nt every opportunity. The sooner those in con trol of our government affairs make their actions square with their ex pressed opinions the sooner the United States will enjoy a return of that pros perity toward which all of us are look ing. Mr. Edison Is not a politician, but he is a shrewd business man, honest, upright, and with the good of the country at heart, but for all that he will have little weight at Wash ington. There appears to be no stop ping the headlong career of our Demo cratic friends before next inauguration day. FANNY CROSBY DEAD FANNY CROSBY, the well-known hymn composer, died yesterday, aged 95 years, at her home in Bridgeport, Conn., thus ending a | career unique in the history of reli gious song writing. Miss Crosby did for religious music in the United States what Foster and those of his period did for southern negro melodies. Hun dreds of well-known hymns bear Miss Crosby's signature and to-morrow many of those will be sung in churches as widely scattered as the English speaking element of the Christian reli gion. Her hymns were not great hymns. In a large degree they lack in the essentials of true lyric poetry, but what they do not have in this respect they make up in heart appeal. She sang songs that ring with the hopes and the faith of the common people. Hers was the voice of the period in which she lived. She was as one with the devoted little congregations that sprang up during her long lifetime over the length and breadth of the American continent. And the passing of this pioneer period has left with the evangelistic church of to-day scores of hymns and songs of praise that will have their appeal for Amer ican churchgoers so long as the simple, unaffected form of worship now so popular prevails. THE FIVE CENT IjOAF JUST how the law of 1797, provid ing that all bread shall be sold by the avoirdupois pound, can be made to apply to the present situa tion is difficult to see. "While this sta tute does require the baker to put six teen ounces into each loaf of bread they bake, there is no provision enforc ing upon them a limit prict of five cents a loaf. They may. If they so choose, charge six, seven or ten centa, or even more, just as they see it, and, so far as this law Is concerned, no steps can be taken to prevent. Besides, as has been pointed out, the weight of a loaf of bread is so variable that even the most conscien tious inspector might lie unable to judge fairly as to whether or not it weighed a full pound immediately up on coming out of the oven. There is much moisture in bread and a loaf that weighs sixteen ounces to-day may weigh considerably less to-morrow. THE PRESIDENTS ATTITUDE DEMOCRATS in the senate ought to be able to understand pretty well by this time why Republi cans have Insisted that the Pres ident is merely stubborn rather than wisely determined,jis his l'riends have insisted. After a long and painful process the Democratic leaders in Congress de vised a compromise ship purchase bi!l which promised, if approved at the White House, to bring to an end the long strung out filibuster in the Sen ate. But the President will have none of this measure. The opinions and conclusions of his colleagues in the House and Senate amount to nothing in his eyes. Regardless of the fact that all legis lation is evolved by compromise. Pres ident Wilson will give ear to no voices that do not harmonize absolutely with his own. He is deternjined to go his own selfish way at any cost. He will put through the ship purchase bill in the form he has dictated, or he will cause an extra session of Congress, so he says. How long, we wonder, will independ ent Democrats continue to submit to such absoluto and uncalled for boss ism. The Democrats have been cry ing "down with the bosses" for so many years that one might have ex pected them, once in power, to act every man according to his own per sonal convictions. Instead, we find the President in control of both branches of Congress to such a de gree that lie dictates to them from the White Mouse just what they shall do and shall not do. If they arc to permit matter# to go on indefinitely in this way they might just as well adjourn both branches and deputize the President to act for them. SELFISH GENEROSITY ONE of the handsomely printed little motto cards that are so popular just now for use as advertisements by high-class printing and paper firms bears this- Inscription: T helped a blind man across the crowded street, and Bo! 1 was cleanly across myself as well—His cane had found a mud hole that I did not see. There is a lot of truth and not a little philosophy bound up in thosn few words. The man who gets if invariably the man who gives. Th« International Rotary Clubs have summed the thought up in this way— "He profits most who serves best." "Scatter thy bread upon the waters for thou shalt find it after many days" is no fanciful admonition. It is a truth that any one can prove by practice. Which gives rise to the more or less paradoxical thought that it pays to be generous if for no other than selfish reasons. AN EVENING THOUGHT The fate of the country does not depend on what kind of paper you drop Into the ballot box once a year, but on what, kind of man you drop from your chamber into the street every morning. Thoreau. 1 EVENING CHAT 1 Governor Brumbaugh's announced intention to visit the various depart" ments at the Capitol recalls the "sur prise visits Samuel W. Pennypacker used to pay about the "Hill." The ex governor never announced that ho was going visiting, but would drop into dep: rtmental office at the most unex pected times and got a lot of fun out or it. As far as known no governor had ever gone about the building to see how things • were run before and his first visits, which were made to departments far away from his own suite, caused consternation. No one knew what tho visits were for and all sorts of nonsensical stories spread. But the governor was only going about to get the lay of the land and he en joyed the time he went to one de pal tment and found live clerks sitting iPw"'*. a * de»k which was decorated with feet. Everyone sought his own place with marvelous rapidity. The Joke, howe.ver, was that the visit was after 4 o clock, which is quitting time. When John K. Tener was governor he used to make some visits, but he picked working hours and on two oc casions found departments where work was very slack. In one he discovered a solitary clerk engaged in work and the man was 'fussed" half to death by ~ \' isitor who sat down and asked all kinds of questions. The other de partment was visited in the middle of the morning and It happened that the force was standing around the head of tho branch of government in .charge and "getting fits" for some careless work. The governor who has Just retired, dropped in on tho attor ney, general one time and as that offi cial was busily engaged in reading up a case he did not look up, but told liis visitor to wait a minute. The gov ernor did and John C. Bell was the most surprised man on the Hill a few minutes later. "There is a fireman squirrel on Capi j a man who takes a big delight in the animal pets of the State. 1 have been in the park a couple of times when alarms have rung and when the bell sounds the squirrel shoots for home. Yesterday afternoon when the Citizen bell rang the alarm I saw the squirrel scamper down a tree and make a bee line for the tree on which his or her box was perched. Another thing, have you ever noticed how the pigeons rise and fly around when an alarm is rung. Just watch them some day." During the last few days the waters of the Susquehanna have receded to such an extent as to practically expose the whole depth of the "front steps of 1 farrlsburg" as the river front wall is frequently called, and the falling of the stream affords a good chance to determine whether or not the engi neers' theory of keeping the steps clean is practicable or not. During the re cent high water the river covered the walk on top of the wall to the depth of several feet. Tons of ice and drift wood were piled upon the wall. "My, oh my, observed many a stroller as he observed the great piles of rub bish, ' tho city will have to go down into its pockets some to clean these steps. J. D. Justin, principal engi neer of the board of public works, held a different view. "The steps are sloped backward from the edge to llic base of each tread to the extent of a quarter of an Inch on the theory that water will roll off readily and so al ways keep the steps washed clear of debris. Harrisburg never need trouble Itself much about keeping those steps clean. How well that theorv is being danionstrated can readily be seen any day now. The falling waters have left the entire stretch of three-mile water front steps as clean as a new pin. Attaches of the State Treasury Depart ment have placed a picture of Anna on the walls of the big department. Anna is a crippled child whom the men connected with Mr. Young's office are keeping in a sanatorium. The child Is but five and thanks to the kindness of the men in the department is being given scientific treatment and the best of care. Harrisburg hotels are unusually crowded at the present time on ac count of the great demand for ac commodations by members of the leg islature and others here on Capitol Mill business; and many complaints are lodged with clerks by transients who are unable to secure comfortable quarters. Last night a man who said he was an extensive traveler applied at a -Market street hotel and waa shown a 75 cent room, the best that was left in the house. He looked at it but refused it saying it was too much, and went off to look for a cheaper room elsewhere. 1 WELL KNOWN PEOPLE "[ 11. A.

They may also add that they will have difficulty in repeating the stocking up process. Ketailers depend for their profit on goods that move. This Is the kind they push their stores are not museums.

They are moving with tlio wishes of their customers when they push newspaper advertised goods. HARRISBURG TELEGRAPH CODES NOME EXAMPLES Of WORK Over 1,000 Acts Art Repealed by the Three Bills Just Sent to the House Over I.DOO acts are repealed by the three codes and the general repealer of obuoiete laws Introduced into the House of Representatives this week. Of this number about 900 are includ ed In the general repealer of laws which have been found lo be in con flict with the constitution, which have been declared invalid on various points and which have been super seded. , The proposed code on taxation re peals 396 acts, the corporation code repeals 354 and the borough code 263. These three codes are the largest acts drawn by the State legislative Refer ence Bureau and were made under au thority conferred by the last legis lature. Except for the school code and the bituminous mine code they are the largest pieces of legislation submitted in years. The corporation code alone comprises 120,000 words and includes all of the "live" laws on the subject, no new matter being add ed; the taxation code includes 96,000 words and the borough code 62,000. The codes were drafted by James McKerdy, the assistant chief of the Legislative Reference Bureau, and have been much commended all over the State. Governor Brumbaugh is receiving the largest mail of any governor since the days of Daniel H. Hastings, who took office on the close of the hist Democratic administration, and addi tional stenographers have been work ing for two weeks to keep up with the tremendous number of letters that huve been pouring into the executive department. Very few of these let ters are of a personal character, prac tically all being on State business. A large proportion are requests for ap pointments, scholarships and favors of various kinds, but many contain suggestions for dealing with work men's compensation and tbe highway problem. Most of these refer to the invitation for ideas made by the gov ernor through the newspapers, but the gubernatorial mail is by no means limited to advice on these two sub jects. the llnances of the common wealth and every kind of legislation being topics on which his correspond ents are writing more or less fluently. It is Uie governor's policy to have all lettenlanswered and this task liafl kept his force at work until late at night. The governor's visitors are also rather larger than has been the rule in the early days of the last three administrations and as nine-tenths of them come to discuss legislation the new executive gets little time to him self and is generally late to his meals. Members of the House appropria tions committee plan to complete all inspections of charitable institutions receiving State aid before April 1 and the committee will be divided into sub committees to make tours of State institutions and us many of Ihe hospi tals and homes that can be conve niently reached next week. Thus far 203 bills calling for $18.r.07,323.54 have been introduced in the House. The framing of the general appropri ation bill will be started within a short time. The governor will dispose of the general deficiency bill next week. It will likely be the first bill to be signed. It carries over 1640.000. —A Reading dispatch says: "Head ing businessmen are dissatisfied with existing conditions in the matter of State provisions for third-class cities and boroughs, and at to-day's meeting of the board of directors of the Cham ber of Commerce initiative steps were taken toward the formulation of a State-wide campaign by commercial organizations to bring about the pass age of a law at. this session of the Legislature creating- a State Bureau of Municipal Affairs. The functions of the proposed bureau, it is suggested, are 1o be purely advisory and could cover a wide area of subjects, includ ing the following: clearing house for the collection and dissemination of in formation regarding boroughs and third-class cities: furnish communi ties with intelligent interpretation of existing legislation; to prevent a mul tiplicity of laws and permit local en actment of ordinances under liberal corporate powers of municipalities; to obtain uniform methods of tax assess ments and tax exemptions; uniform | practice in regard to accounting and budget making; providing information for municipal bond issues and indebt edness: to represent the municipalities in cases pending before the State boards or commissions."

OPTOMETRY BOBS UP 111 LEGISUTURE Big Fight Is Ahead Over Super vision of That Branch of State Service The controversy which began early last year in the courts of Philadelphia as to whether or not the State Bureau of Medical Education and Licensure should have supervision over the prac tice of optometry has been transferred to the legislature and will be fought out during the present session. When the bureau undertook to reg ulate the optometrists by setting up rules for examining and licensing them a number of Philadelphia op tometrists took the matter into the common pleas court and thq latter de cided that the act creating the bureau did not give it authority over the practice of optometry. It was announced that the bureau would appeal the case to the Supreme Court, but meantime an effort has been made to avoid the necessity of such appeal by the introduction of a bill in the House by Representative McNichol, of Philadelphia, providing that, no, one shall practice optometry in Pennsylvania without a licfcnse from the Bureau of Medical Education and Licensure. The optometrists have promptly retorted by introducing, through Senator Daix, of Philadelphia, a bill placing the regulation of their practice under a board of optometric examiners, entirely separate from the medical and surgical examining and licensing body. In other words, they object to coming in under the "one board" examining plan, but wish to have distinct State regulation, such as the osteopaths, dentists and druggists enjoy. The optometrists in their bill define optometry as "the employment of any means other than the use of drugs for the measurement of the powers of vision and the adaptation of lenses for the correction and aid of the vision of human beings." The bureau bill defines it as "the employment of any means other than the use of drugs, medicine or surgery for the measure ment of vision and the adaptation of lenses for the correction of aid thereof, and also the employment of any means except the use of drugs, medicines or surgery for the purpose of detect ting diseased conditions in the human eye." \ OUR DAILY LAUGH "| V A SOMEWHERE. . / Grace: Have ■ | you kept all your ' " New Year's reso- i lutions, Harry? have a copy I WJB 9 locked up In a B 1 drawer some- R " | 'v'v k |^S\\V\ N v JUST AS WD > EXPECTED. v\ V v Uncle George: /( v V I suppose you'r# > v expecting a lot Christmas? \ Freddy: Yas. but I don't expect YOLK YAI.K\TINK I llj Winii Dinger To-morrow is Valentine Day.
