TAYLOR HAS PLAN FOR MUNICIPAL BOATHOUSE AT "HARDSCRABBLE" Housing: facilities for the hundreds of canoes, motor and rowhoats on the Susquehanna river basin, should he pro vided for by the municipality in commodious quarters erected on the site of what Is now "Hardscrabble" according to City Commissioner M. Harvey Taylor. Superintendent of Harks and Public Property, to-day. The proposed boathouse is shown by the Telegraph in the accompanying etching." It would be constructed of con crete in such a way as to provide ample room for caring of all the canoes and boats for years to come. A structure of about -'OO by lot) feet with a groat broad roof garden on top comprises the scheme. Attractive lights would be placed around the railing and the "garden" should contain a bandstand and plenty of benches and chair, according to Mr. Tayor, Access to the proposed stand would be readily had either from the bank at Front street or by a flight of steps. The boathouse should open on the river front wall. "Such a municipal boathouse as suggested would certainly till a long felt want." declared Mr. Tavlor. "It is what Harris!) 11 rg needs now to accommodate the hundreds of boatmen and It will be doubly needed when 'Hardscrabble' has been moved. The people of Allison Hill as well as in the upper and lower ends of the city would be benefited as this point is the natural landing place for so many hundreds of canoeists." Residents of "Hardscrabble" enthusiastically endorse the plan and the sketch for the purpose was prepared bv "Mayor" Harry J. Berrier. J TAYLOR CHALLENGES DUNKLE TO DEBATE [Continued Front First Page.] of this question In tlie court house this evening' at 8 o'clock so that the people of Harrisburg may jutlgc who was right. liindl) send your answer to this challenge by the messenger delivering it, so that the proper arrangements can lie made to se cure the use ol' the hall. Yours truly, M. HARVEY TAYLOR. "This challenge is made in perfect good faith Nothinng would please me better than that the people of Harrisburg should have an opportunity of learning all the facts in the case. I would be very much gratified to meet Mr. Dunkle to-night where he or anybody else could ask any ques tions they might desire, and where I could tell them the true story con cerning the letting of the tire appar atus contracts. "I caused this challenge fo be de livered to Dr. Dunkle personally this morning. "The messenger asked for an an swer. "Mr. Dunkle replied, 'there is none.' "When the messenger insisted Mr. Dunkle repeated, 'there is none.' "'Then that is equivalent to no,' said the messenger. " 'That is the equivalent of No,' Mr. Dunkle agreed. "I may say that ,my challenge still holds and that the courthouse is still engaged In case Mr. Dunkle decides to change his mind, which X am in hopes he will do. Dunkle Sub-Lets "Air. Dunkle is president of the Morton Truck and Tractor • company. He makes much of the fact that X recommended the purchase of lire ap paratus manufactured out of town, thereby depriving the Harrisburg workmen of opportunity to labor. Mr. Dunkle is far more guilty of sending contracts out of town than 1 am, for he has sub-let the bulk of all the con tracts let to him for war orders. The Croat hulk of the Morton Company's work is being (lone out of town. In ' deed, if the Morton company had got the contracts, Mr. Dunkle would have ! had the hulk of the machinery made 1 out of the City, lieuausc he was not in , position to manufacture It here. This is proved by the fact that Mr. Bow man, Mr. Lynch and myself waited i for over two months for the Morton i company to give us a demonstration I of what they could give the city, they f never having built a fire tractor or j steam fire engine of any kind. Would ! any business man let a contract for any such large sum as was involved j unless he had been convinced by dem | onstration that he was getting his money's worth? In short Dunkle wanted the city to buy A cat in a bag. "Dunkle is president of the Morton Truck and Tractor company and as • such his statement must be regarded ;in the light of an unsuccessful and [ disgruntled bidder. "It was my desire to get for the city five pieces of fire apparatus for 'the money at my disposal, SIB,OOO, | and this I would not have been able to | do had I accepted the Morton bid. Sold Cheaper Out of Town j "Mr. Dunkle makes a great play at j local patriotism and local economy, | but if he wanted to benefit the city I p TTONDfoV EVENING," TRARRISBURG ftfijiflg TELEGRAPH "JOE" BERRIER IN A HAPPY MOMENT [so much as he informs, T would like him to exiilain why, at the same time he was bidding S 1,000 for combina tion wagons in Harrisburg, he is on record as liu\ing offered exactly the same combination wagons to Williams port at $3,900, with freight paid to that city. In addition he would have been at the expense of sending a dem onstrator to Williamsport and the in cidental expenses would have run down the bid for Williamsport to about $3,700, or S3OO less for the same machine in Williamsport than he wanted to charge his own home town. If this is local patriotism 1 want none of it. "But further than this, Dunkle's manager, Mr. Morton, previous to the submission of bids, assured me in my office in the presence of the assistant fire chief, that his company, having all the plans and preliminaries made, could now sell combination wagons to the city at a profit for $3400 each. Why then does the company ask S4OOO, if its management is imbued with so much total pride and patriot ism? "I wish also to pronounce as an absolute falsehood the assertion that the Morton apparatus now in posses sion of the city has never cost any thing for repairs. On three separate occasions I forced the Morton people to make extensive repairs to the Friendship wagon and members of that company say the apparatus never will be satisfactory to them. Before the machine had been run any length of time new rear springs had to be put in. "And finally, I suspect that Mr. Dun kle's real reason tor opposing me is that he desires the election of E. Z. Gross, who is closely identified with the Morton company, and the other Democratic candidates for council. Shrewd Mr. Dunkle, it occurs to me, would like to have a friend at court when the city begins the expenditure of about $60,000 more for fire appara tus during the next two years. "It is true that the Morton company is a local concern, and I believe in favoring Harrisburg industries where e v er possible, but at the same time 1 am the servant of the city, and in any contracts the city must be considered first. That is the reason I made my recommendations for fire apparatus as I did." FREE LECTURE OX CHRISTIAN 7 SCIENCE Prof. Herman S. Herlng, C. S. 8., of Concord, N.

(WILLIAMS SHOE SHOP SOLE I OLDEST GAME WARDEN IS DEAD Joseph Bcrricr, Survivor of Many a Black Hand Letter, Dies Joseph Berrier, oldest warden in the service of the State Game Commis sion and the survivor of half a hun dred threats from "black handers," game poachers and law violators, died at his home on the River Front in this city last evening. Mr. Berrier was fifty-four years of age and the last fifteen were spent. in the service of the State. For several years Mr. Berrier was a traveling game protector, having been given a rousing commission be cause of the manner in which he had broken up violations in many parts of the State. Always noted for his great strength and fearlessness he had attracted notice of men identified with the State Game Commission soon after it was created in 1895 and when Dr. Joseph Kalbfus became secretary he had Berrier run down some flagrant violations. There were not many fund 3 available for game protection then, but Berrier gave of his time freely and spent many a week chasing game law violators at his own ex pense. He was commissioned February 1, 1900. "Joe worked many a day and many a week for nothing," said Dr. Kalbfus to-day. "He paid his own expenses and did splendid work for the State for which he was never paid. I had the utmost confidence in him and what he did to stop low breaking would fill a book. From the time he was commissioned he was never off the job." Berrier got many threats and kept a collection of Black Hand letters. He never minded them and never got hurt. One man in Sullivan county made a knife out of a file especially to "cut Beeg Joe." Berrier arrested him without a gun. One of his feats was arresting; six men in Mifflin county. He got them two at a time and chain ed them to trees. Then he handcuffed all together and marched them to jail. Often Berrier spent a week or more in the woods, camping; out, waiting for game law violators and caught them red handed. He disarmed hundreds of foreigners who carried arms in de fiance of State law. Funeral services for Mr. Berrier will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at his home, the Rev. E. E. Curtis, pastor of Westminster Presby terian church officiating. Mr. Berrier is survived by his wife and four sons, Joseph, John, James and Theodore.
