"HARDSCRABBLE" PROGRESS
CITY COUNCIL. City Solicitor
Daniel S. Seitz and the Dauphin
County Court have co-operated
admirably in the promotion of
the "Hardscrabble" improvement. The
appointment of viewers last Saturday
whose duty it will be to tlx a value
upon the properties to be taken over
by the city is another lons step
toward the removal of the last ob
struction to a continuance of a river
side park from one end of the city to
the other.
Fortunately, the law is such that
the city need not await the outcome
of possible long-drawn-out legal com
plications over the amount t« be paid
any of these property owners. As
soon as the viewers have completed
the report it will be possible for the
municipal government to assume title
to the land and houses involved, while
«t the same time the interests of both
the city and the property owners will
be conserved.
There are several reasons why no
time should be lost in the acquirement
of the properties in question. In the
first place, since it is a settled fact
that the city is to assume title to them,
it is only just-that the owners be held
in suspense no longer than is abso
lutely necessary. In the second place,
the people who now occupy houses in
the "Hardscrabble" district, which will
be. removed following the transfer of
title, must of necessity tind new resi
dences. The houses to be torn down
must be supplanted by others else- i
where, and the demolition of the old
dwellings and the erection of new ones
to take their places will not only give
work to a large number of men for a
i onsiderable period of time, but will
help to stimulate new buildings at a
time when the building trade is badly
in need of a tonic.
It is. therefore, to be hoped that
the viewers will lose no more time
with their part of the work than
Council and the Court have in getting
the matter under way.

WASHINGTON'S BIRTHDAY.
WE celebrate to-day the birth
day of George Washington,
first President of the United
States and in all truth tlie
father of his country.
Washington was a general of the
first rank. He was a statesman of
rare ability. But these two
foundation stones upon which so many
men have been content to rest their
fame Washington built a structure of
magniilcent manhood. A man of high
ambitions and facing tremendous diffi
culties in nearly every one of the great
undertakings that marked his mar
velous career. Washington neverthe
less placed truth, honesty and upright
ness of character before everything
pise. Even for the furtherance of
those objects which lay next his heart
he consistently declined to employ sub
terfuge or even the semblance of
falsehood.
The lesser characters of his day.
who did not scruple to employ the
weapons which Washington rejected
in an effort to overthrow hisi popu
larity and influence in the affairs of the
nation then in the making, have passed
either into oblivion or have been pic
tured by historians in so unfavorable
a light that no doubt had they a voice
in the matter they would prefer that
their names would have been lost en
tirely to the memory of man.
Washington's life teaches the great
lesson that good citizenship pays: that
in the long run the reward goes to the
brave, the true hearted and the self
sacrificing.

THE STATE AND ITS LABOR
WHILE there may be some oppo

\the suggestion contained in
the report of the Bureau of
Statistics of the State Department of
L&bor and Industry in favor of state
supervision of employment agencies,
labor camps, immigrant lodging houses
and the like, there is no question but
that it is bound to come and the
proposition should ite considered now.

MONDAY EVENING,
' railroads und other employers in ob
taining labor in prosperous times.
Take, for Instance, the boom times of
1900 and the busy years that followed.
Europe was combed 'or labor and em
ployers had to ppend considerable
money to obtain hands.
Hardly a farmer in Pennsylvania
gets through a year without needing
help and with the present campaign
in behalf of greater crops under way
there will be still greater demand for
muscle next summer.
Pennsylvania. leading industrial
State and one of the big agricultural
commonwealths, is going along in re
gard to the supply of labor the way
she was before the Spanish war and
probably there has been little im
provement regarding the certainty of
a supply thun there was in the seven
ties. Here is a department whose men
have studied the labor situation and
who believe that the State can help
employers and employes overcome a
condition that has made both losers.
The best part about it is that the aid
is offered at a time when there is
opportunity to try it out and to pre-1
pare the way for the days when labor
will be at a premium.

HARRISBI'RG IS GROWING
THERE is no more certain gauge
of the growth of any community
than the yearly increase of its
school enrollment. That llar
risburg has been going forward even
in these dull times is evidenced by
the fact that with one new school
house only partly completed the Board
of Control linds it necessary to begin
the construction of still another.
It is a peculiar thing that while
there is never any objection raised
to tht 1 erection of new grade buildings
as rapidly as the growth of population
requires, it is next to impossible to
educate public sentiment to the point
of approving a loan for the construc
tion of a new high school. No city in
the State cares for its primary pupils
and those of other grades below the
high school more admirably than does
Ilarrisburg and our Technical High
School is a model of its kind, but the
taxpayers appear to think that hav
ing gone thus far they have done their
entire duty and that the boys and
girls of the Central High School may
be permitted to shift as best they can.
This is discrimination of a very un
fortunate and unfair character.
To provide first-rate grade schools
and at the same time permit a hap
hazard, hit-or-miss high school course
is like building a handsome and well
furnished house and leaving the up
per stories rootless and open to the
wind and rain.
The time is fast approaching when
this high school problem must be
solved. The need is becoming impera
tive and a solution must be found.
The intercollegiate debates are now
coming on and if .they don't pay ex
penses the deficit can be made up out
of the football receipts.
INTENSIVE AGRICULTURE
i agriculture, if prac-
I ticed on American farms, would
A liood the markets with farm
products in such quantities that
the grower would get practically no
returns." said John A. McSparren. of'
Lancaster county, master of the State
Grange, while addressing the students
of the agricultural school of State Col
lege yesterday.
Reduced to its final conclusions, Mr. 1
Mc-Sparren's argument seems to be
that the. less a farmer grows per acre
the greater his profits will be. That
is ridiculous. The opposite fs true.'
The more intensive farming is prac
ticed in this country the greater will be
! the returns to the grower. Too many
of our farmers are wasting their time
und their energy trying to cultivate
two hundred acres when one hundred
acres would be about the limit of their
capacity if their farming were con
ducted along scientific and economical
lines.
There is more wasted effort on the
large farm manned by the small work
ing force than in almost any other line
of industry'.
Every factory owner knows that the
more he is able to produce on a given
amount of capital the greater his
profits will be. If in a plant that cost
him SIOO,OOO. for illustration, by in
tensive efforts he is able to produce as
much as he was formerly able to turn
out in a factory costing $200,000, the
manufacturer can sell his products at
a lower price and still find himself at
the end of the year richer than he was
under the old plan. His invested capi
tal is less, the interest charge on it
correspondingly smaller, his overhead
is no greater and his working force
costs less. His wear and tear is not so
great and the only increased cost is
the marketing of his product, in most
instances an item that takes care of
itself.
The same thing applies to the farm.
For instance, near Harrisburg is a
man who failed utterly to make ends
meet on a farm of one hundred acres.
He is now earning a comfortable liv
ing on ten acres of ground and getting
better prices for his fruits and vege
tables than he ever hoped to receive
while cultivating the larger area. In
tensive farming is bound to come. If
Mr McSparren's opinions are to pre
vail. we might just as well close up the
agricultural department of State Col
lege and let the boys at study there
return to the farms, for the whole
effort of State College and other in
stitutions of the kind has been to make
two blades of grass grow .vhere one
blade grew before. In short, to make
our farms, acre per acre, more and
more productive, which in the final
analysis amounts to little less than in
tensive f^rminfc.
We don't like to appear pessimistic,
but in tlie light of what happened on
a certain Mafrch 1 within our memory,
we would pause in our contemplation
of the new Spring styles to drop this
■vord of advl«t—don't doff those flan
nels until the »hadflies and the bull
frogs set the example. They usually

Activities of the Dauphin County
Historical Society, the Harrisburg Nat
ural History Society and other organ
izations of the city in promoting work
in various tielijf of research, nature
study and iocal history particularly,
have stimulated the attention that is
occasionally given to the life of the
Indian tribes that formerly owned the
lands of the great Susquehanna valley.
No'..' more books are being written,
more searches being made and more
aduresses being delivered on this sub
ject than probably ever known before.
In the last year there have been sev
eral notable novels based upon historic
clashes between Indians and whites in
Pennsylvania; eftorts have been made
by Henry W. Shoemaker and others to
collect and publish the very entertain
ing legends and traditions of the In
dians who roamed in sight of Harris
burg s present location, and the State
lias provided a commission to appro
priately mark the forts which were
rallying places in time of Indian raids,
the study of Indian history possesses
a fascination that is as great a3 hunt
ing for arrowheads or tomahawks and
in which everyone indulges at some
| period of his life. There are few sec
, tions ot tlie State filled with more lore
of the Indians than the portion cov-
I ereil by the Iroquois confederacy
I which dominated New York and part
of our own state. This portion of
I Pennsylvania was long controlled bv
j the Susquehannas. which w ere, allied
with the Deiawares. and later over
come by the Iroquois. Probablv one
of the most interesting talks on this
subject to be heard in Harrisburg this
winter will be that to be given by State
Treasurer Robert K. Young before the
Alricks Association of St. Andrew's
Church on Friday night. He wllj
speak n the Iroquois confederacy,
whose history he has studied us have
few people in the State. General
\ oung comes from Tioga county,
which was a battleground long before
I the white man came and which is
filled with the traditions of the Five
Nations and the great chiefs who
brought the confederacy into being
j and furnished American history with
one of its most remarkable chapters.
Because of the character of the lec
ture the Alricks Association has invited
the two tribes of the Improved Order
of Red Men located on Allison Hill to
attend the meeting next week. Invi
tations were sent to the chiefs of
records of these tribes by Gilbert W.
j Mattson. secretary of the Alricks Asso
i elation, to be read at the council fires.
As the Alricks Association is particu
larly an Allison Hill institution, the
formal invitations were confined to the
j two Hill tribes, although it was at the
same time explained that any Red
Men. or any other men. are entirely
welcome to next week's meeting. One
of the objects of the Improved Order
ol Red Men is to preserve the history
and traditions of the aborigines, and
State Treasurer Young's approaching
lecture has created much interest
among the members of that big fra
ternity.
The Alricks Association, incidentally,
is attracting all kinds of attention not
only on Allison Hill but throughout
the city generally because of Its rapid
growth. A year or so ago men of
St. Andrews Protestant Episcopal
church organized a men s Bible class.
They talked about a men's social club,
too. at the time, but the matter was
postponed until fall. Last October a
preliminary meeting was held to or
ganize the club. Among those present
were a number of men not connected
with either the Bible class or St. An
drew s Church. Outsiders manifested
so much interest from the start that
it was decided just to have a men's
club without any church or other con
nection. The organization was named
tor the late William K. Alricks for two
reasons: he had been senior warden
of St. Andrew's Church and. too. was
known by almost everyone in the city
as one of the most far-sighted buai'-
nessmen of Harrisburg.
The Alricks Association frc*n the
start had no definite end in view ex
cept to m»ct twice a month for "social
and educational" purposes, although
when it sees a chance to do some good
and help along some worthy cause it
gets busy. Every meeting night it
has some lecture or other entertain
ment. Starting with less than twenty
five members last fall, it has added I
anywhere from ten to twenty-live
members every meeting: now" the
membership is 152, only a third of
them being members of St. Andrew's
I Church. The others are members of
other churches of all denominations
or no church at all. Most of the mein
oers live on Allison Hill, but others
reside west of the rairoad and in Pax
tang, Penbrook. Highspire and other
suburbs. The meetings are h<>ld in
st. Andrew's parish house because its
! use is given without charge and be
cause it is the most available place.

I
Penrose Makes Some Comments
Upon His Ideas on Election
Law Amendments
—Democratic leaders and congress
men-elect are venting their wrath
against President Wilson, Postmaster
General Burleson and Congressman A.
Mitchell Palmer over the manner in
which the post offices in Pennsylvania
are being doled out to strengthen the
discredited machine. It is expected
that post office appointments will be
made at the rate of forty a day from
now until Palmer's term ends.
—Apparently Democratic congress
men and congressmen-elect do not in
tend to stand for much more and are
arranging to lay their case before the
President. Postmaster General Burle
son, a former colleague of Palmer, is
being sharply criticised for telling
Congressman-elect M. Llebel, of Erie,
that he did not pay any attention to
congressmen until they began their
terms. Similar statements arc report
ed to have been made to others and
Congressman Casey, of Wilkes-Barre,
has oeen openly flouted.
—The worst break the administra
tion has made was in listening to Pal
mer and forcing through the appoint
ment of A. J. Palm as postmaster at
Meadville. Palm was formerly con
nected with the machine headquarters
and runs a paper at Meadville. Con
gressman Uiebel charged that the had
supported a Bull Jloose for Congress
against the Democratic candidate, but
Burleson did not care.
—Machine dictation forced the nam
ing of these postmasters: A. C. Knepp,
Northeast; Preston L. Peters, Saegers
town, and Thomas McCobb, Cochran
ton: John C. Barclay, Clearfield; Gran
ville S. Rehrig, Lehigh ton; B. C.
Lainberson. IweConnellsburg; Robert
Lesher. Northumberland; Thomas
Wood, Muncy; A. J. Young. Pen Argyl;
John M. Bedker, Stroudsburg; John
Cashman, St. Mary's; T. E. Warner,
New Oxford, and W. J. Johnson, Bris
tol.
—lt is reported that Palmer is go
ing to open an office in Philadelphia
and associate himself with a number
of big lawyers in New York and Phila
delphia in addition to keeping his ottica
at Stroudsburg. However, he will
probably be government counsel in so
many cases during the rest of the Wil
son administration that he will not
have much time for clients.
—The Philadelphia post office ap
pears to be under tire these days and
the Democratic control has not
helped it any.
—Heber Ermentrout has been elect
ed chairman of the Reading Democra
tic committee.
—Judge Orvis at Bellefonte granted
27 licenses and held up six.
—A boom for Judge John M. Gar
man. of the Luzerne county bench, for
Superior Court, was launched at a
county dinner served to the Judge and
a number of his friends at Dallas last
night.
The event was designated as a chick
en and wattle dinner and was not sup
posed to have been a political gather
ing. but before all the chickens and
wattles had disappeared, James H.
Shea, a lawyer and lifetime friend of
Garman, launched the boom.
There were a dozen or more
speeches in which Gartnan was urged
to come before the people. The judge
has not said that he will or will not be
a candidate.
—Senator Penrose made these com
ments on election laws in Philadelphia
yesterday: "I certainly favor a bill to
prevent fusion. The people should not
be compelled again to view such a
spectacle as that which marked the
last campaign when Dr. Lewis with
drew as the Washington party guber
natorial nominee after the voters had
settled the thing for themselves. Per
sonally, 1 feel that a candidate should
go into the primaries under his own
party colors; that then he should re
main on his designated party ticket
and not withdraw in the interests of
some other candidate of some other
, party. The voters of any party have a
I right to decide such matters for them
selves. Candidates should stand by
their nominations; abide by the de
cision of the primaries." With regard
to the Legislature in general, the Sen
ator said mat uecause of his recent ill
ness and the "tense situation at Wash
ington" that he had not been able to
keep in close touch. Me said that re
ports he had received indicated that
everything -was proceeding most har
moniously; that the Legislature and
the Governor would co-operate, and
that finally the pledges of the Republi
can party would be redeemed.
—The Philadelphia Record to-day
says: "Senator Penrose's declaration
on Saturday upholding the Brum
bauglt veto of the padded payroll Items
of the general deficiency bill is ex
pected to end the talk among mem
bers of the Legislature of a movement
to appropriate these contingent funds
in defiance of the Governor. The
action or the Senator in putting down
the threatened revolt against the Gov
ernor is understood to have been vol
untary on his part, as it is stated that
[the two men nave neither met nor
been in communication since the in
auguration. The movement to pass
the vetoed items and thus create a
break between the "Executive and the
Legislature had not proceeded far be
yond the talk stage, but fears were ex
pressed that the legislators might take
advantage or lite absence of Senators
MeXichol, Vare and Crow at the next
meeting on Monday evening, March 1,
to rebuke the Governor for slashing
the patronage. Senator Penrose's op
position to the repeal of the non-par
tisan election of judges is expected to
cause the legislative leaders to go slow
In pushing that measure."

The sheaves of Virginia are gathered

Where troubled Ohio in wilderness

We've perils to conquer and torrents

To traverse before we return.
