In the note to to the Vienna Foreign office, asking Dr. Dumba's recall. Secretary Lansing referred to the purpose of the ambassador to conspire to cripple le gitimate industries in the United States. Officials were engaged to-day in a study of whether Captain Von Papen and Consul General Von Nuher were not concerned in what the American government has character ized as a conspiracy. Act Not Offensive One official who has been studying the details of the situation said to-day that while the German ambassalor, in sending a communication by a person carrying an American passport, may have technically contributed to an abuse of that document, in the view of the State Department, the nature of the communication he said was so far removed from the others and of such a legitimate character that his act probably would not he regarded as offensive. C»ptain Von Papen's letter, how ever, is said to be decidedly offensive, | as in the nature of Consul General i Von Nuber's connection with the affair | as disclosed by the papers which the British secret service men took from Archibald at Falmouth. Xo ImouHliate Action It was believed in the best informed sources to-day that further steps would not be taken until the addition al documentary evidence comes from London and until Vienna has been heard from on President Wilson's re quest for the recall of Dr. Dumba. In official and diplomatic circles it is ex pected that Austria will recall her am bassador without delay, but that if she resents the action of the United States and stands behind the action of her envoy she not send an other. Washington Not Anxious to Stir Up Diplomatic Issue With Vienna Office By Associated Press Washington, D. C., Sept. 10.—Xews of Austria-Hungary's reception of the American note requesting the recall of Ambassador Dumba eagerly was nwaited here t.o-day in government and diplomatic circles. Officials of the administration appeared optimistic in the belief that the summary action would not result in any international issue, while diplomats close to the Austro-Hungarlan embassy were un derstood to believe that the Vienna government immediately would com ply with the request. Ambassador Penfield, it was be j lieved here, could have effected deliv ery of the note by to-day. When a response would be received and the form it would take was a matter of speculation. It was suggested in some quarters that it would not be neces sary for Austria-Hungary to make a formal reply, but it was assumed that under the circumstances an official re sponse—besides definite action —would he forthcoming. Place lor Zwiedinek Diplotnats In touch with the Vienna embassy here thought to-day there was little doub' that Dr. Dumba im mediately would be recalled. It was suggested that baron von Zwiedinek. counselor of the embassy, would be made charge d'affaires, to remain until the conclusion of the war.

Archibald Declares He Has Been Victimized London. Sept. 10.—A dispatch to the Daily Mail from The Hague quotes James F. J. Archibald as saying in an interview: "I am a victim of an attempt to use me as a carrier of compromising docu ments. I have, therefore, renounced my intention of going to the Austrian front, and yesterday I informed Bar on von Kahlman, the German minister it The Hague, that I no longer re quired his letters of introduction or a German vise on my passport, as I wished to return immediately to Xew York." Mrs. Archibald Says Her Son Did Not Know Contents of Message By Associated Press Cincinnati, Ohio, Sept. 10.—"My son did not know the contents of the let ters that have caused the trouble.

This was the declaration to-day of Mrs. James Archibald, of Boston, Mass.. mother of the war correspond ent. James F. J. Archibald, whose role as messenger for Dr. Dumba, Austro- Hungarian ambassador to the United States, was believed to be one of the causes for the request by the State Department that the Austro-Hungarian diplomat be recalled. Mrs. Archibald Is visiting at the home of Mrs. D. J. Durrell, at Terrace Park, a suburb of this city. "I know but little of the case as It has been revealed in the newspapers." .continued Mrs. Archibald. "August 10 ' I received a cable from my son that he had landed safely at Rotterdam and 1 have had no word from him since. He is too loyal an American to commit any act that might be construed as a re flection on his country. He is a close personal friend of Ambassador Dumba and the letters that he took from the ambassador addressed to the foreign ofTice were sealed. My son had I not the slightest knowledge of their contents." Lansing Gives Out Note Asking Recall of Dumba Washington, D. C., Sept. 10. —Sec retary Lansing made public last night the text of the note sent to Am bassador Penfleld for presentation to the Austro-Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs. It is as follows: "Mr. Constantin Dumba, the Austro- Hungarian Ambassador at Washing ton, has admitted that he proposed to his Government plans to instigate strtkeg in American manufacturing I plants engaged in the production of munitions of war. The information I reached this Government through a copy of a,letter of the Ambassador to his Government. The bearer was an American citizen named Archibald who was traveling under an American passport. The Ambassador has ad mitted that he employed Archibald lo bear official dispatches from him to "his Government. "By reason of the admitted pur pose and intent of Mr. Dumba to con spire to cripple legitimate Industries of the people of the United States and to interrupt their legitimate trade and by reason of the flagrant violation of diplomatic propriety In employing an American citizen protected by an Am erican passport as a secret bearer of official dispatches through the lines of the enemy of Austria-Hungary, the President directs me to inform your Excellency that Mr. Dumba Is no longer acceptable to the Government of the United States as the Ambassa dor of his imperial Majesty at Wash ington. "Believing that the Imperial and Royal Government will realize that the Government of the United States has no alternative but to request the recall of Mr. Dumba on account of his Improper conduct, the Government of the United States expresses Its deep regret that this course has become necessary, and assures the Imperial and Royal Government that it sincere- I ly desires to continue the cordial and I friendly relations which exist between the United States and Austria-Hun gary." Dr. Dumba's Attaches Cannot Believe News Lenox, Mass.. Sept. 10. —When word of the request for the recall of Doctor Dumba was taken to the summer quar ters of the Embassy here officials ex pressed doubt as to the accuracy of the Washington dispatches regarding the recalf. "It cannot be believed," one of them said, adding that he thought a day or two would prove the unreliabil ity of the report. Information that the announcement was made by Secretary Lansing also was received with apparent incredul ity. In the absence of Doctor Dumba, it was said no statement would be Issued. The Ambassador's secretary, Baron Stephen Henry de Hedri, said that he believed the Ambassador was lr. Xew York.

PRESIDENT STUDIES GERMANY'S NOTE [Continued From First Page.] ordered to destroy no more liners without warning. Text of Note on Arabic Is Sent Out by Berlin Berlin, Sept. 10.—Germany's note on the sinking of the. Arabic on Au gust 19 was communicated to the American ambassador, James W. Ger ard, for transmission to Washington and is as follows: "On August 19 a German submarine stopped the English steamer Punsley about sixteen nautical miles south of K'.nsale and was on the point of sink ing the prize by gunfire after the crew bad left the vessel. At this moment the commander saw a large steamer making directly toward him. This steamer, as developed later, was the Arabic. She was recognized as an enemy vessel, as she did not fly any flag and bore no neutral markings. "When she approached she altered her original course, but then again pointed dlrectl ytoward the submarine. From this the commander became convinced that the steamer had the Intention of attacking and ramming him. , "In order to anticipate this attack he gave orders for the submarine to dive and fired a torpedo at the steamer. After firing he convinced himself that the people on board were being rescued in fifteen boats. "According to his Instructions, the commander was not allowed to attack the Arabic without warning and with out saving the lives unless the ship at tempted to escape or offered resist ance. He was forced, however, to con clude from the attendant circum tances that the Arabic planned a vio lent attack on the submarine. "This conclusion is all the more obvious as he had been fired upon at a great distance In the Irish Sea on August 14—that is, a few days before —by a large passenger steamer appar ently belonging to the British Royal Mall Steam Packet Company which l.e had neither attacked nor stopped. "The German government most deeply regrets that lives were lost through the action of the commander. It particularly expresses this regret to the government of the United States on account of the death of American citizens. "The German government is unable, however, to acknowledge any obli gation to grant Indemnity In the mat ter, even If the commander should have been mistaken as to the aggres sive intentions of the Arabic. "If it should prove to be the case that it is impossible for the German and American governments to reach a harmonious opinion on this point, the Geiman government would be pre pared to submit the difference of opinion, as being a question of inter national law, to The Hague tribunal for arbitration, pursuant to Article 3 8 of The Hague convention for the pa cific settlement of international dis putes. "In so doing It assumes that as a matter of course the arbitral decision shall not be admitted to have the Im portance of a general decision on the permissibility of or the converse under International law of Gerjnan sub marine warfare."

Tiistin First Speaker Promptly at 3 o'clocic the Pennsyl vania Commission and the speaker of the day entered the gaily decorated platform which had been erected on the south side of the building In front of the Liberty Bell. E. L. Tustln, chairman of the Pennsylvania Com mission, presided and made the in troductory address. He explained that the day was the anniversary of the First Continental Congress which had met at Albany at the suggestion of a Pennsylvanian. He pointed out that Pennsylvania was proud of hav ing been founded amid scenes of peace and equity and that "no bloody sacrifices were offered to the god of war at her creation. "However, when strife and war did break forth within our borders, our people have been brave, strong and courageous and to-day with bowed, but exultant, hearts we remember the brave defenders of Wyoming Valley, the terrible privations and suffering of Valley Forge, and the heroism and self-sacrifice of Gettysburg," he said. Hale Praises Brumbaugh The next speaker was Reuben B. Hale, the First vice-president of the Exposition. During his address of welcome, he praised Governor Brum baugh highly speaking of him as a man of many professions and one of the leaders of the nation. "I know that he has taught Penn sylvania something about politics," said Hale: "his majority shows that. He has shown this, too, in the. fact that he has repealed somi# 900 laws that were so much dead timber on the State's statute books, and he has ve toed something like a third of the new la.ws that came up at the last Legisla ture. "We of California feel grateful to Pennsylvania for many things—for the support she gave San Francisco In Congress, for this splendid building and for this treasured relic, the Liber ty Bell." Governor Plants Red Oak In concluding, he asked Governor Brumbaugh to plant In front of the building a young red oak tree which had been brought from Valley Forge. This he did with the assistance of Lieutenant-Governor McClain and other members "of the commission. Mr. Hale also presented the Governor with a case of jewels similar to those which are on the Tower of Jewels. Governor Brumbaugh then made the principal address of the day and pointing to the silk, Philadelphia made, American flag fluttering over head, said: "We are far from home, and yet we are at home, for wherever free people foregather under the Philadelphla-born flag of the Union is home for Pennsylvanlans. "We have come from the home of nine million good people to this land of wonders, of great achievements, of lofty ideals worthy of true men. Our entire citizenry will turn to-day to the West, and in spirit they are here now joining with us In the prayer, God Bless California, God Bless Penn sylvania, God Bless the Union.' Governor Gives History of State "Here upo nthe shores of the peace ful sea, in the heart of a mighty peo ple at an exposition commemorative of one of the many masterful achieve ments of our people, on a day set apart to do honor to the great State of Pennsylvania in whose first city this nation was born, we gather to renew our faith in a Nation whose people rule because they are free, and to pledge again and again our loyalty, our love, our pride In that Nation whose birth heralded by this mute but once resonant champion of our rights as a free people—the Loberty Bell. "Three definite efforts were made by our colonial forefathers to secure to themselves life, liberty and pros perity. In 1754 at Albany at the sug gestion of a Pennsylvanlan, delegates from the several colonies met to form a federation. The convention was the Initial movement to secure a union of the colonies. Not only was It con ceived by a Pennsylvanlan. but It was carried to a successful issue by a Pennsylvanlan. "From this successful venture in federation sprang the first and second Continental Congresses. It was a union of heads that led to a union of States. To Pennsylvania's Initiative during these years and to her Insight we may justly point with pride, and to her the Nation owes a debt of gratitude equaled by few and sur passed by none. "This anniversary of the First Con tinental Congress we observe here upon these western borders of the Xation whose growth and expansion have no parallel in the annals of men. We are the fortunate possessors of the richest and most varied land In the world. But this gift of God would mean little If our people did not pos sess tho genius, the initiative and the courage to possess It as the land of the free, the home of the newer man of destiny, the man who, sensing things In the large, resolved that quality be fore the law and democracy inllght ened by loyalty should be his and his children's forever. The Xational Pur|M>se "This common understanding of our national purpose is as much the creed of the man of the West as it is that of the man of the East. Whether we have first seen the light ot mother's eyes In the peaceful hamlets of Penn sylvania or under the shadows of the majestic mountains of this wonderful West, we all stand equally committed to the declaration of Washington, Adams and Franklin. "You have, in half a century, under the guiding principle formulated In Philadelphia, wrought like titians, thought like sages, lived like heroes. As a mother loves her child, so we love the Golden West. The spirit of the West has become the spirit of the East, and this solidarity of purpose has made the country what it Is. There are no Western ideals, no Eastern ideals, but national Ideals, that live and grow In the hearts of all of us, whether we live In the sunrise land or the sunset land. The Nation's Goal "When a nation puts its destiny in the care and keeping of its emtre citi zenry, its achievements will be condi tioned by the quality of that people, their courage, their sentiment, their religion, industry and' enlightenment. Whatever promotes these upbuilds the nation. Whoever loses himself in the greater life of the nation will find him self again. Our great men are those who forget themselves, but the nation never. An enlightened citizenry is the nation's hope, the nation's goal. "All our ideals blend into that fine Ideal—Liberty, which is the will of the people expressed In terms of law. Self-imposed law is the guidance of a free people. Never has a great nation possessed so fine, so fitting an expres sion of her dominant ideal as the peo ple of the United States. ] That silent, but eloquent expres sion, the Liberty Bell, Is here to-day. We of Pennsylvania guard it for the Nation; the Nation guards It as the emblem of our freedom." I Chairman Tustln then asked those « Few Days More Sale! Sale!

Mr. Montgomery is connected with the Montgomery Coal Company. As a young woman in Harrisburg she had taken an active part in many social affairs, and one of the charac teristics and pleasing phases of Mrs. Montgomery's life was her devotion to the interests of the unfortunate, especially the city's poor.

Grant Koons, an instructor and a former sergeant and drill master of the Gov ernor's Troop, to organize a cavalry, artillery and infantry cadet corps in the school. They believe the experi ence would give them a military train ing that would be very valuable. Other instructors at the school are strong for the movement and Mr. Koons believes the school board will give him permission to install the innovations as soon as he gets his plans completed and before them. While Superintendent of School Downes has not seriously considered the matter, it is believed he will favor it. SUPERFLUOUS VOTING One of the editors of the New Tork World recently stopped a dozen people in front of his office and asked each the name of the secretary of state of New York. Not one could tell him. This is no reflection upon popular in telligence.

Front Street // Philadelphia ~f 83 Yuan of Lmadarthip VIEWS OF TUFT Oil SUFFRAGE DISCUSSED Dr. Shaw and Mrs. Horace Brock Comment on Former Presi dent's Story Philadelphia, Pa., Sept. 10,. — Pro fessor William H. Taft's article on wo man suffrage, which appeared in the current issue of the Saturday Eve ning Post, caused no little comment by suffragists and antisuttragists. The Ex-President states in hia article that when he was graduated from the Woodward High school, he delivered an oration espousing equal franchise, but that since then his views on the subject have changed. Ho asserts that in the end, if suffrage is sufficiently delayed to give the women a better chance to prepare for the ex ercise of the franchise, "its advantages will outweigh its probable injurious consequences." Many suffragists were puzzled by Mr. Taft's attitude, while others said he was "on the fence." Still others regarded his enunciations as a distinct suffrage victory. The antlsuffragists also were puzzled, and many refused to venture comments because they said Mr. Taft had not made hi* ideas clear. The Rev. Dr. Anna Howard Shaw, national suffrage president, called the article a "muddle of contradiction" and said Professor Taft had tied him self up In a knot in an endeavor to give both sides of the issue. Mrs. Horace Brock, of Lebanon, president of the Pennsylvania Asso ciation Opposed to Woman Suffrage said: "Both suffragists and antlsuffragists are indebted to Mr. Taft for bringing clearjy before the voters that the ques tion to be decided by them in Novem ber is not whether woman suffrage is a good thing in Finland, Iceland or Australia, or in Pennsylvania, when the millennium comes, but whether it is expedient to grant the suffrage to all the women of the State of Pennsyl vania in the year 1915. Mr. Taft told the people of California the other day that they were trying out various political experiments, and reminded them that they would have to pay for it, He did not specify what experi ments they were trying, but what he has said regarding woman suffrage in the Saturday Evening Post makes it very evident that he regatds woman suffrage as a very serious experiment." Rabbi Freund to Make "A Plea For Sabbath" Continuing his series of sermons In observance of the Jewish New Tear, Rabbi Charles J. Freund will preach in Ohev Sholom synagogue this even ing at 7.45 o'clock on "A Plea for the Sabbath." The general theme of to day's celebration centers around the Sabbath of Return. Preparations are now being made by Jews here for an elaborate observ ance of the Day of Atonement. The Initial service will be held next Friday evening and services Saturday will be entirely devoted to It. The ritual of the day is public and congregational, but Its significance Is personal. One phase of the ritual is the thought, and memory of the dead. An other expresses openness, sympathy and a desire to attain to a moral will. 13
