Before s o'clock a great crowd stood sliiverinn in the first cool fog of the season awaiting the opening of the doors. Shortly after ten o'clock signs bearing the words "church full" were hung at all the doors except the one reserved for ticket holders. Conspicuous among the crowd hich waited patiently in the gloomy fog until the doors were opened was a large number of wounded soldiers attended by Hed <'ross nurses. The somber clothing of the congregation which packed the great edifice was re lieved here and there by spots of color of the uniforms of soldiers and sailors when military and naval dignitaries took their places.

Fighting may begin to-day, or may | be delayed until some time next week. | That is dependent upon the plans, dis position and condition of Villa's i troops, but the outcome probably will determine whether Sonora shall come under sway of Villa or whether he will be driven as a fugitive across the American border.

REPUBLICANS ARE WELL SATISFIED, WICKERSHAM SAYS Party Methods to Which Many Objected No Longer Exist, Recorder Declares THREE ROUSING RALLIES Progress, Steelton and Oberlin Voters Out; Congressman Kreider Speaks High Points in Big Steelton Rally Oscar (i.

Congressman Kreider urges big Republican majority this year In preparation for presidential cam paign. Mark M iimmn pays tribute to John K. Siiupp, his opponent at primaries, and says lie will support him for office if he comes out again. Frank B. Wickersham also com pliments John F. shtipp on game light he made. Steelton workers turn out at large meeting to pledge support to whole ticket: big majority in sight there for Republicans. Before a crowded hall at Steeltoi last evening Oscar G. Wlckersham county recorder, who was elected on t fusion ticket four years afio. said tha l while Republicans in large number! had been dissatisfied with the part} mnnasenient and party methods of a few years back, there is now perfect harmony in the Republican party in Dauphin county. All of the evils have been corrected, lie said, and the party is lined up as a whole behind as clean a ticket as was ever put in the Held and in preparation for the presiden tial fii?ht next year. This is in exact accord with what the candidates have found in their canvass of the whole county. Pro gressives. Keystoners and all other independent factions are lined up with the Republicans. Frank B. Wickersham presided last evening and-in addition to calling on the county candidates also introduced the .Republicans who are running on the borough ticket. A pleasing fea ture of the evening was the kindly manner In which Mark Mumma, can didate for county treasurer, and Mr. Wickersham both referred to John E. Shupp, who was Mr. Mumma's oppo nent at the primaries. Both said he had made a clean tight and if he came out for office at a future date could count on them for support. Congressman Kreider made one of the telling speeches of the evening. Ho denounced in scathing terms the spineless conduct of the Democratic administration at Washington, going at length into the "watchful waiting" policy In Mexico that cost some 300 American lives and said that if the Mexican situation had not been bungled from the very outstart the German government never would have presumed to commit the Lusitania and other outrages of recent months. He showed how the Democrats had ex pended more than $200,000,000 above the largest sum ever expended by a Republican Congress and that if they had not thrown money away in this extravagant manner the country would not need to be paying a stamp tax to ntake up the deficiency. Mr. Kreider asked the Republicans present to elect the county ticket this year as paving the way for a sweeping Republican victory next, year and the return to power of experienced, constructive statesmen not to be swerved by idle theory and capable of conducting the affairs of the nation in a manner to win the respect of all the world. All of the candidates except William Houser. candidate for register, spoke. Mr. Houser was detained at the bed side o/ an invalid wife. Tin- Republican candidates also spoke at Progress and at Oberlin. f'ongressman Kreider made the prin cipal address at Oberlin. where the rally was held in the engine house. Prospects, party workers reported, were bright for sweeping Republican victories in those districts. 24 Hours of Oratory Is Part of Program By Associated Press New York.
