He graduated from the Harrisburg High school with the honor of having been president of his class in 1900 and after a four-year engineering course at Cornell took up work in New England. The cause of his death is directly | attributed to a hip injury received while playing football at Cornell.

It j will be private and there will be no ! llowers. Frederick A. Reiley was the son of Mr. and Airs. James McKendrie Reiley formerly of this city, who moved to' Ituffalo. N. Y., several years ago.

' TUESDAY-EVENING, i KABJRISBURG TELEGRAPH MARCH 7, 19X6. SEEN MODELS AT BOWMAN AND CO.? ! Anyway Your Wife'U Tell You All About It Tonight—lt's Some Show / If jour wife Is a wee bit distrait when she greets you this evening, but gradually grows congenial to the point of laughing delightfully at all your oldest jokes, ten to one slio's been putting in a goodly part of the day at the "fashion show" at Bowman & Co.'s store. And when she has finished going into detail to some extent you'll prob ably wonder whether the people who arrange such things at Bowman's might have a grouch against mere man. In of her words, you'll wonder j whr men folks can't see such things. Your wife, however, will tell you very firmly that "men really don't go." (Once in a long while a newspaper ! reporter is assigned to a job that makes him think such positions as advertising man for Bowman & Co. and similar coupon-clipping places among the Morgans and the Schwabs, and so forth, must make a man eter nally happy. One of them, one of the reporters, that is. got such an assignment to-day. This is the story about it.) Fashion shows such as Bowman &- Co. began to-day are calculated to affect in just two ways the average mere man who loves his wlfo and likes to please her by buying her things— he'll probably get heart failure twice. Once when he gets a first glimpse of a new spring gown; again when lie learns in a cooing way the price. Just five models do the showing at Bowman & Co.'s Of course there is an ! orchestra, and pretty flowers and cur | tain effects, ami all that, but—the I models are really—oh, wel, what's the 1 | use? Hair and eyes that match with most ! any delightful color and combination in millinery and seamstress art and shoes and enough glimpses of stock ings to set you guessing as to what the j "ad" writer meant when he referred to "shoes, stockings and accessories," all help out in an ensemble that pro duces SOME show. Of the dainty sport coats, the pretty hats, the dove-colored silks and char | meuse and satins and broadcloths and : | crepe and georgette, whole columns | could readily be written. But the wail ! iof the foreman decrying a lack of] space has been re-echoing through the j offices these many hours. Suffice it to say in conclusion that every model that was worn Is an exclusive gown j which Bowman & Co. sells. GERMANS POUND WAY TO VERDUN [Continued From First Page] lacks on Douaumont by way of Va- i eheauville. If successfully presed, lit would serve to reduce the awkward salient along the bend in the Meuse' | north of Verdun. : Meanwhile the pounding of the 'heavy guns of the Teutons on the French center on the Douaumont plain is continuing with undimlnlsh violence. In the Champagne a surprise attack recovered for the Germans tlie posi tion east of Mai son do Charnpaigne which the French took on Feburary 11. i The attack on Verttun has shifted i to the west and the Germans are now j engaged in pounding their way toward j the fortress from beyond tlie Meuse. j ] advancing along the railroad that' ; parallels the westerly bank, j Last night the German troops as- ( ' saulted and took the town of Forges, f I nine miles northwest of Verdun, but , were prevented by the French from ! debouching against the Cote de l'Oie, j j a height about a mile to the south. ] To-day comes the admission from i Paris that tlie Germans, after a vio- | j lent bombardment, succeeded in fore- | I lug their way through Forges and | ] along the railroad in the vicinity of | j Regnevllle, a village a mile and a half I ' southeast. Take Hill at Heavy Cost j Simultaneously an entire division > violently attacked and captured Hill | No. 2U5, southwest of Regnevllle. I Heavy losses were sustained by the ! Germans in taking this position, Paris ] declares. ] The new drive of the Teutons ap- • i parently is In the nature of a clearing ] I operation, probably indirectly aimed at I j ultimate possession of the dominating I i heights in this region. For days they have been hammering the command- ] j Ing height of Le Alort Homme and | ! other elevations west of their present line of advance, which is bringing their infantry ahead in the same gen eral direction. The present movement, if success ful, also will straighten out the battle line to the northwest of Verdun, which j now curves sharply northward from ! the point, of the bend in the Aleuse, | the territory included within which, lying east of the river, was some time i ago reported clear of French forces. French lines farther west have held j and they are in possession of Bethin- ] court and nearby territory, and still ] occupy Cote de l'Oie.

Piersol, of Philadelphia, and Mrs. Anna M. Orme, of Wayne, Delaware county, as the leaders.

C„ March 7.—Three i dreadnaughts and four battle cruisers, ! built and authorized, added to the American fleet, would make it. the j equal in fighting strength of the prcs j ent. German fleet. Admiral Fletcher, ! commander of the Atlantic fleet, de | dared yesterday before the House na j val committee. While Germany lias seven battle I cruisers and the Untied States none, 1 the admiral said, the 35-knot craft, proposed by the Navy Department would be so much superior to any thing now afloat that four of them, possibly three, would more than offset , the seven German boats. With the present fleet ol' forty-two ! battleships of all types, three uddi : tional dreadnaughts and seven battle cruisers. Admiral Fletcher thought "we could reasonably expect to make a good defense, although not an abso lute one." of both coasts against unv | combination of two enemy powers that i did not include Great Britain. POU INTRODUCES SPECIAL RULE [Continued From First Page] ! fore the House for debate and a vote without amendment. The adminis tration leaders said there was no i doubt the two previous votes showed 'they could table it by a large ma jority. i At 11 o'clock the House assembled for i the all-day fight of the administration forces to kill the McLemore resolution to warn Americans off armed ships of the European belligerents. Speaker Clark was in the cliair. As soon as the journal had been read Mr. Pou offered the privileged | resolution containing the special rule. I Mr. Pou asked unanimous consent ! for ninety minutes' debate on the rule. i There was no objection and the debate ! began. Mr. Pou took the floor to open the fight. Record Crowd Prospects or a. sensational debate attracted a record crowd to the House long before the doors opened. Men, j women and children canie ready for a long stay. Lunch boxes, milk bottles, opera, glasses and books formed the principal part of their equipment. When the public galleries were thrown open there was a rush and scramble and the galleries were tilled within five minutes. The first outburst of applause from ! the floor came at the outset of Mr. Pouts speech when he said: "All the i imps ol hell never devised a more in famous lie than that which has been made that. President Wilson wants 1 war." Representative Campbell, of Kan sas. Republican member of the rules | committee, announced when Air. Pou concluded that if the motion to close debate on the rule were defeated he ! would offer a substitute for the ! McLemore resolution which would be a direct warning to Americans to keep off armed ships. "If this rule is defeated," declared Representative Harrison, Democrat, of Mississippi, an administration leader, "you will not only send joy to the hearts of people in a foreign capital, 1 hut you stab your own President in ' the back." At the end of debate of an hour and a'halt of the rule a vote on a motion for the "previous question"—a motion to end the debate on the rule itself — was in order. That, under the plan of the leaders, would be the first roll call. Then a vote on the adoption of the rule itself was in order, making a sec | ond roll call. Four Hours' Debate The adoption of the rule meant four hours' debate on the McLemore reso lution itself, with another roll call at the close on a motion tor disposition of the resolution. This generally was expected to be a motion by Chairman Flood, of the foreign affairs commit tee, to table it. The expectation of three roll calls was based on the assumption that the rule would be carried and did not take into consideration any unexpected par liamentary tactics from the opposition. Mr. Pou attacked the McLemore resolution at the outset. "It means, in effect, that if an American disregards a warning that the United States government will fold its hands," said he. "Is there a single red-blooded citizen in this house or country who wants to do that? It Is charged that the President wants war. All the Imps of hell never devised a more infamous charge. No man since Abraham Lincoln has gone through such a test as the President has gone through in the last six months, lie has tried to preserve peace. He would not sacrifice a single life to make him self President for a life time. He has support of both sides of this chamber. He has support on the Democratic side and distinguished support on the other side. Only the other day 1 read a statement of ex-President Taft sup porting him." Applause on both sides of the chamber followed his remarks. Representative Campbell, Repub lican, read a substitute which, he said, he would propose if a motion to end debate on the rule did not carry. It was as follows: "Resolved, That in the opinion of the House of Representatives, citizens of the United States, under existing conditions and irrespective of their legal rights, ought to refrain from taking passage on armed vessels of belligerent nations, except, in case of imperative necessity." America First Representative Harrison, of Missis sippi, Democrat, took up the debate for the administration. "This is not a question for us to divide upon as Democrats or Repub licans," said he. "It is a question of America first. It is a question wheth er you shall rise above narrow par tisanship and stand for the American government. The only safe course for us to pursue is to follow the rights of neutrals under international law. If wc altow one column to be taken from the structure of International law we endanger the whole founda tion of our government. "The question to-day," he conclud ed, "is whether you are with the President or against him. If this rule is defeated you will not only send joy to the hearts of people in a foreign capital, but you stab you own Presi dent in the back." » Representative Chipcrfleld. Repub lican, of Illinois, declared he favored standing by the President. "Rebel" Yell I "I shall vote to table the McLemore resolution In defense of the flag," de clared Representative Farr, Republi can of Pennsylvania, pointing to the | American flag behind the Speaker's I chair. "To vote for the resolution would be to put a yellow streak in that ! flag." Representative Graham, of Penn sylvania, Republican, declared: "To -1 day, I don't want to be pro-German, I pro-American or pro-anythlng, I want Ito be only an American, to stand up and face the world for its right." The "rebel" yell rang out from the [ Democratic side. RAILROAD MUTUAL MEMBERS!'

Pennsy Plans Terminal Tunnel For Philadelphia Tentative plans for a great tunnel terminal system in Philadelphia, to cost $30,000,000, at a rough estimate, are in the mind of the Pennsylvania! Railroad management. The plans have not even been fully considered, but arc being discussed on ! all sides. If carried out within a few! years, a new subterranean station 1 would probably be constructed In the I space between Filbert and Cuthbert 1 streets, and the tunnel terminal sys-1 tern would be equipped for electrical , operation as well as for the steam ! trains. It is believed, too, that the : three stops at North Philadelphia, j, Broad Street and the West Phlladel-1 phi a stations, could be made more , quickly if the terminal system was adopted and built.

Extra crew at) Treat Gall-Stones Without Knife Avoid Dangerous Operation by Thing Lohmann's Gallstona to Free Yourself of Gall-Stones This medicine has been employed successfully for years. Numerous letters from grateful former sufferers attest Its result-getting Qualities. It 1h positively unfair to yourself to un dergo a painful, dangerous and often useless operation until you have found out what Lohmann's Gallstona. can do for you. 4 An operation only removes stones that have already formed. It doesn't correct the conditions that cause them, and therefore another operation may shortly be necesßary. Lohmann's Gallstona Is designed to not only remove the gall-stones (by dissolution), but to correct the kid ney, liver and bowel conditions that cause them. Ilcnce, its remarkabla success. Which wilt you do? Will you risk your life and many dollars for an operation, or will you risk one dollar for a package of Lohmann's Gall stona? Which course is the wiser? Naturally, you will prefer the lat ter so get a package to-day. Pon't put It off until another hideous* nttarlc of sail stone colio grips you. Forsaleand recom mended by George A. Gorga*. Knola.
