GOVERNOR SOUNDS
NOTE OF WARNING
IN PROCLAMATION
ThanksgivingDocumcnt Pleads
For Return to Sound Econ
omic Conditions
DEPLORES THE GREAT WAR
Pennsylvania Should (live
Thanks For Peace, Plenty
and Prosperity Now
Governor Brumbaugh to-day issued
his first Thanksgiving day proclama
tion calling upon the people of Penn
sylvania to observe a day of thanks
for "a year of health, plenty and so
cial advance" and declaring that at the
same time people should take steps to
reach "a sound economic condition."
The proclamation says:
"Let us reverently observe our day
of Thanksgiving, not alone because it
is a custom so to do but because it is
a privilege annually to make public
acknowledgment of gratitude to God
for His manifold mercies and bless
ings. We are a worthy people only as
we are an humble and a devout peo
ple. Not to see the guiding wisdom of
God in the affairs of men is to be ig
norant of the vital controlling force In
the uplift of the race.
"We have had vouchsafed to us a
year of health, plenty and social ad
vance. «lur Commonwealth has been
signally free from calamities. Our
crops have been abundant. Our indus
tries at the beginning of the year were
languishing. They are now increas
ingly prosperous. The deplorable war
in Europe may be the occasion of this
prosperity. It Is regrettable that the
misfortunes of our neighbors should
be a cause of our prosperity. The
sooner we reach a sound economic
condition based upon a normal com
petitive market the better it will be
for us. The present situation is one
that may well cause us to take heed.
The law of love is the only abiding
law of progress.
"In the spirit of solemn gratitude
thai we have been kept from the hor
rors of war and that we have been
blessed of God with material and
spiritual good, let us gather in our
several places of worship to take our
reckoning, to give thanks for boun
teous blessings, and to supplicate our
[Heavenly Father for continuing guid
ance and help.
"To this end and that we may be a
holler and happier people, I, Martin
Grove Brumbaugh, Governor of this
Commonwealth, do designate and set
aside Thursday, November 25, 1915,!
as Thanksgiving Day."
Ah-a-Choo! and Man's
Shoulder Is Dislocated
A good healthy sneeze this morning
sent E. L. Shireman, a machinist re
siding at 1522 Regina street, to the
Harrisburg hospital with a dislocated
right, shoulder. Shireman Is employed
at the Harrisburg Foundry and Ma
chine Works.
The accident happened about 10
o'clock. The machinist was working at
a bench. When he raised his right
arm to get a tool from the shelf, Mr.
Shireman sneezed heartily. A fellow
employe standing nearby heard bones
crack and heard his comrade groan
in pain. It was with difficulty and
much suffering that the machinist's,
arm was lowered.
The ambulance was called and the
Injured man was taken to the hospital
where the dislocation was reduced.
It was at first believed that a rib had
also been fractured, but surgeons say
the soreness in the chest was due to
the injury in the man's shoulder.
Mr. Shireman was able to go to his
home this afternoon.

aboard. One report says that 271 perished when the ship went down and
that 371 were saved.
Officials at Washington are fearing a recurrence of the "Lusltanla

$1,000,000 BLAZE
IN ROPE FACTORY
Company Was Engaged in
Making Materials For
War Purposes
By Associated Press
Trenton, N. J., Nov. 11.—Fire that
started shortly before 2 o'clock this
morning and burned fiercely for more
than two hours completely destroyed
one of the rope shoos of the John A.
Roebling's Sons Con.pany. entailing a
loss estimated at a million dollars.
During the progress of the tire a row
of frame buildings located on Clark
street and running back to the burned
structure caught fire a number of
times and were In danger of dstruc
tlon. The occupants of these houses
were compelled to move out. many of
them wearing only their night cloth
ing.
The rope mill, which had a frontage
on Elmer street of about 100 feet, ran
back a distance of 700 feet parallel
with Clark street in the rear of the
dwellings. The fire originated in the
Elmer street end of the building and
because of its inflammable construc
tion the entire structure soon was in
fiames. The interior of the mill was
open from one end to the other and
the upper floors were of wood and
were saturated with oil from the ma
chinery.
There were rumors here that the
fire was of incendiary origin, due to
the belief that the company was en
gaged in making material for war
purposes. Officials of the concern,
however, do not believe this.
In recent years the Roebling com
pany has sustained heavy fire losses,
the largest of which occurred last
January when its Buckthorn plant, was
completely destroyed with a loss of
$1,500,000.
The building In which it was ru
mored the Roeblings are planning to
make gun barrels for war purposes is
located some three or four blocks from
the scene of this morning's fire.

DOES U. S. FLAG

"WORK OF ART" EXTRA
Attorney Will Ask City Couneil
to Reduce Valuation
Figures
Does the painted presence of Old
Glory on the face of a "s»ilte fence"
enhance or decrease the value of a
property SSOO worth?
| City Council, sitting as a board of
tax revision and appeals, may be called
j upon to consider that problem Fri
, day, November 19. when it hears ob
jections to 1916 triennial assessments.
Scott S. L<etby, counsel for Levi O.
I Balsbaugh. of Melrose, raised the ques-
I tion informally at to-day's session of
[the board's sitting. The Third ward
complaints were heard to-day and Mr.
Lelby said he will investigate the prob
lem with a view to appearing for his
client at hearing of the Thirteenth
ward appeals.
Long Has It Waved
The "Old Glory spite fence" ques
tion has agitated both county and city
legal circles for some years; it all
I grows out of the erection by Mr. Hals
baugli of a twenty-foot-liigli fence on
the western side of his property at
Twenty-sixth and Derry streets. On
the western front of it he painted a
gorgeous waving Hag of the United
States. In the center he painted a
great cross. The flag-painted fence
faced upon the property of A. L. Groff
at Old Orchard. Balsbaugh proudly
called the structure a lovely work of
art. Groff and other neighbors angrily
called It a "spite fence."
That was some years ago, and the
question was threshed out legally on
several occasions, but because the
commonwealth boasts of no anti spite
fence law on Its statute books the
fence remained. Finally a certain
board of assessors placed an increased
value of SSOO on the Balsbaugh prop
erty. Balsbaugh protested that he.
had not been regularly served with the
notice and took his appeal on that
question. The inference at the time
was that the additional SSOO was
placed on the property as a gentle
persuader to the owner to raze the
fence
Worth a 8500 Increase
The present board of assessors let
the SSOO remain.
Mr. lyeiby declares that the "fence"
might well be considered a work of
art, but that the assessors had no legal
right to assess it for more than its
actual value. He said it might be
worth $75.
Mr. Balsbaugh has long since re
moved to Philadelphia. Mr. Groff lias
gone to China.
Tenth Ward's Increase
To-day's hearings were of a more
or less desultory character. The total
assessments of the city have been com
piled up to the Eleventh ward and
already figures show an increase in
valuation of more than a million dol
lars. In nine wards the increase was
something over $500,000; in the Tenth
ward alone the increase will aggregate
$600,000 and $700,000. Among the
owners of properties affected, it is
understood, are the McCormick estate,
Joseph L. Shearer, Jr., Harry Reyn
ders and Commissioner-elect E.. Z.
Gross.
Some of the appeals, it is understood,
may be taken up following next Tues
day's meeting of Council. After the
appeals have all been settled, Council
figuring on the basis of the city's chief
source of income from taxation, will
begin the preparation of the 191 C bud
get. Work on the budget, however
may not be started before the middle
of December.

accounts of some survivors.
The Austrian submarine which had
been pursuing the liner gave a brief

panic among the passengers caused
by the sight of the submarine and to
and fact alleged that the under

fore and aft at the liner as the pas
