JOHNSON PLAN IN 17 COUNTIES Prisoners Working on Farms or Roads to Help Out Dur ing the. War in This State Reports showing that seventeen counties of the state had adopted the plan sponsored by Judge Isaac Johnson, of Media, for employment of prisoners in county jails on coun ty farms or on roads were submitted at the quarterly meeting of the State Hoard of Public Charities by General Agent Bromley Wharton to-day. York and Chester were mentioned as among counties with a fair sized prison population which had not adopted the plan, while many of the smaller counties were reported as not having enough men to make it prac ticable, while the anthracite region counties found prison conditions un suitable in some eases. The counties reported as adopting the plan were Delaware, Lancaster, Montgomery, Bucks, Berks, Lehigh, where men were assigned to help farmers; Schuylkill, Columbia, Blair, Somer set, Northampton, Perry, Dauphin, Lebanon, Cambria, Fayette and Westmoreland. Mr. Wharton reported recommen dations carried out for improvements at Lancaster prison and that a con siderable saving had been affected at Warnersvllle by the trustees handling building operations. • F. J. Torrance, Pittsburgh, was elected president for another term, Louis Wolf, Philadelphia, being elected treasurer, while the office and Held forces were all chosen again. Mrs. William Thaw, Pittsburgh, the first woman to be named to the board assumed her duties to-duy. William H. Bell, Philadelphia, the other new member, was not present. County Firemen Organize; Say Delayed Truck Might Have Saved Woman's Life The firemen of Dauphin county formed a temporary organization at the Washington Chemical house last evening. Colonel H. C. Demming was elected temporary president. Permanent of ficers will Be elected at the next meeting. October 8, at the Washington Company house. C. W. Rank, of the Liberty Fire Company. Wiliamstown; C. R. Baus man, of the Rescue Company. Middle town; J. E. Payse, of the Enliaut Fire Company; George W. Lutz, of the Good Will Company, and W. L. Jauss, of the Washington Company, were ap pointed a committee of five on consti tution and bylaws. Delegates from Steelton, Highspire, Middletown. Enhaut, Williamstown and Lykens were present. The firemen went on record as fa voring the response of tlie truck with the chemical wagon when telephone alarms are received. They also au thorized the purchase of an effective smoke helmet by each company. It was felt that Mrs. Laura Lockhal't, who was suffocated when the resi dence of 11. M. Witman, 2101 North Second street, burned early^yesterday morning, might have been saved had there been a hook and ladder truck and smoke helmet at the tire in the early stages. The firemen also reported that a city detective prevented the foreman of one of the companies from enter ing the house, even though he was wearing the proper equipment.

Boston. Sept. 11.— I The Boston Red Sox and Chicago Cubs hooked up again to-day In the sixth game of the world series be fore several thousand spectators who shivered and shook in the Arc tic blast that reached every corner of the field and stands. Murmurs of another strike over the division of money of the world series con tenders faded out during the morn ing when the clubowners held a conference, for afterward it was given out that the contest would be played and reports had it that the Boston and Chicago owners had met the situation. "We will finish it to-day," said Manager Barrow, of the Red Sox, who lacked one contest to capture the series. "I have both Bush and Mays ready for the box." Umpire Hildebrand .was desig nated to give the decisions at the plate; Klem at first, Owens at sec ond and O'Day at third base.

YANKS ARE OUT TO WIN QUICKLY [Continued from First Page.] prehensive discussion of all these things. Messages From Front Dr. Bagnell is high in his praise of the American boys, and of the work of the Red Cross and Y. M. C. A. Of the part Harrisbu'rgers and Pennsylvanians are playing ho has learned much, too. "I have a pile of communications t from boys fiom Harrisburg and vicinity to relatives and friends here and as soon as possible I will give their names to the public and com municate with tlie persons whoso ad dresses they have furnished -lie. There are many hundreds of them, the majority communications tell ing the folks that they are well and happy. They, too, have the spirit of every American soldier, to win tho war now. All are anxious to get into service at the war front, officers and men making every effort to get there. In the hospitals, in the camps at the great military headquarters and vari ous bases the same feeling exists. Then there is the homesickness, too. Frequently I spoke to the men and they said, 'France Is all right, >yut good old U S. A. for mine. I want to get this fight over.' Talk of Home "You couldn't talk about America tc those boys but that they appre ciated It. I conducted a service one day at which many songs were sung, the boys selecting them. Finally one of the crowd) called out a num ber. It iv.ts 'Home, Sweet Home.' None of us could sing it." Dr. Bagnell met many Harrisburg ers while in France and in England, but could not get to see them all. Before he left he took the names and military designation of all local bovs as furnished by parents and friends here. As soon as he landed in Franco ho wrote to all these boys, getting answers from practically every one of them. Some he saw later and got personal messages from them also. Meets Harrisburgers In explaining his difficulty in reaching the local boys. Dr. Bagnell said: "As soon as 1 left this country 1 was just as much in military serv ice as any officer or private. 1 had to observe every censorship rule, and for any infringement on the military regulations I was liable Tor court martial. You can readily see that I did everything possible to retain all privileges, in writing to the Harris burg soldiers: I could not tell them where I was unless in Paris, and they could only give me their mili tary unit and head their letters 'Somewhere in France,' the same as When writing home. "While irt one big meeting at which 1 spoke one of the men came forward and told me that there was a captain in his regiment who was from Harrisburg. I investigated and met "Bill" Calder, having a nice talk with him. Praise For Miss Watts "At one of the large American dis tribution points 1 met another en thusiastic war worker from Harris burg. Miss Marian B. C. Watts. The work she and another woman are doing there is remarkable and the boys almost worship the ground those two walk upon. I had a long talk with Miss Watts also. "Later I learned while visiting a large bakery at this same place that Lieutenant Curzon Fager was there. .1 met him. Among those who an swered my letters announcing my arrival were Captain Nicodemus, Lieu tenant Wallower, Captain E. J. Stackpole, Jr., and Ross Jennings." Admiration For Yanks Dr. Bagnell then gave a brief ac count of his trip. During his three month.. tour he .made fifty-live lec tures and addresses, speaking to thousands of soldiers, talking to many hundreds of them personally. He also studied the attitude of the English and French toward the American people and the American troops. "Everywhere there is the greatest of admiration for our boys. Two men the most talked of by these peoples are General I'Jpch anil our own Pres ident Woodrow Wilson. The work of America, too, since it entered the war, is another thing which the British and French never cease talk ing about. The great spirit of our people iiacking the President and the ideals for which we stood in en tering the war have aroused a spirit which 1 have never seen anywhere before. Twice Eluded U-Bonts Ooing over Dr. Bagnell sailed with twenty-four other Y. M. C. A. workers on a troop ship carrying I.IO'O men. It was chased twice by submarines, but escaped both times because of wireless warnings. It carried a military cargo valued at 00.000.000 francs. "I did not go to the front lines on any of the battle fronts while an at tack was on," Dr. Bagnell continued, in speaking of bis visits in the war zone. "I spent some time, however, in the front, line trenches in a quiet sector und at a rest station ut a permanent camp. It would have re quired too much time to go to the scene of battle and my purpose was to see as many men and talk to them In the short time that I hud. Talks to Troops "My reception everywhere by the boys was most enthusiastic. At one place I was scheduled to make an address in the public square of a French village. I did so standing on .a writing table surrounded hy an enormous crowd of troops. In an other village tho Mayor, a well-edu cated man who could speak both English and French, greeted me and was my most attentive listener. "My most favorable lecture was "A House Divided Against Itself," in which I told of the antagonism of democracy and. autocracy. At one place where I gave it to some sailors one of the leaders at the base at which I was to speak the following night was present. After I had fin ished he asked me if I had not shortened the talk slightly. I told him I had and was requested not to do so the next night. I talked to those men for two hours and five minutes. Our Allies Al'e Bravo "The sacrifices of the French and British are wonderful. Few homes are in which the war has not pa d its visit, but the people do not carry their hearts on their sleeves. There is little mourning in England. In France where the people are more emotional nroro of it is seen. "One woman speaking to# mo on the train said the sacrifices of the thousands of families is not talked about. 'I have one son in France, another in a hospital and a third who gave his life,' she said quietly." Pennsylvania Leads Pennsylvania troops everywhere are leaders, Dr. Bagnell declared, but the great spirit of Americanism that prevails is startling, he said. "The stato nor the race has noth ing to do with it. In every camp that I visited the boys were united in one great purpose and their anxiety to get into the front line attack was expressed many, many times to me. They are hungry, too, for talks on what the great .war means and how it is to be settled. They will not listen to mere twaddle, they want to know the real things. Y. M. C. A. Praised "From my study of conditions there seemed to me that more vital than anything else to the morale of ♦he soldiers is the work of the Red Cross and Y. M. C. A. Their hold and interest in the men is astonish ing, the 'Y' earing for the boys who are well, safeguarding them in cities such as London and Paris, and the Red Cross ministering to the sick and wounded. Every little detail for their convenience and comfort is looked after. The 'Y' at some posts investigates when soldiers do not receive mail from home and makes every effort to straighten out the numerous mail difficulties because of the many changing positions of large numbers of the troops. Poor Mail Service "The mail service is poor at best. The French never had a system as complete as ours. One instance of the service I can furnish from my own experience. A cablegram sent front this city to me in France on July 13, reached Paris on the 29th, was sent through the mail and got to me on August 5. A letter mailed to me with the same information reached me August 2. "This adds to the anxiety of many of the troops. One man in service there since January, told me in July that he had not received word from his wife. Others have similar stories, they are over for months before a letter reaches them." Like West Point Dr. Bagnell while in England vis ited camps there at which American troops are stationed including a big aviation base. In France he spent nipe days at a big school center where there are twenty-one military schools for training soldiers for com missions In all branches except the heavy artillery and aviation. "It was like West Point but great ly multiplied in size," Dr. Bagnell commented. Dr. Bagnell was in Paris just be fore the last big German drive which ended in the Allied counterattack which is now a big drive in itself sending the Huns to the border. Supreme Confidence "Everyone expected the greatest German blow was to come but the confidence of the people was su preme. In fact that last attack did not turn out to be as big as was an ticipated. I frequently heard the rumble of the big guns also while in the war zones. German airplanes came over the lines, also, at times while 1 was in some of the villages." Dr. Bagnell had no time for sight seeing, he continued. "I was very busy always and attempted to crowd into three months time the work of six months. I accomplished almost everything I had planned, too. While in England I only saw from a dis tance such places as Westminster Abbey, the Parliament Houses and other points of interest. Sure Shooting "In France it was the same. I saw the Eiffel tower from a distance and also Napoleon's tomb. One enjoyable part of the tour gave me an oppor tunity to see the Alps and in one French town a party was orgunized to visit an art gallery for an hour. The remainder of my stay in the two countries I spent in active work, either lecturing or visiting soldiers." On the trip home Dr. Bagnell sail ed on an auxiliary cruiser which was not bothered by U-boats as it was fully equipped with guns and the navy's best marksmen. The last week of his stay was spent visiting naval bases he said. Owing to cen sorship rules he could not give the location of any of the army or navy units ho visited. While on the cruiser coming back three icebergs wore sighted. One of these was used for a target by the gunners. It ivns eight miles away. A report from the official observers showed that one large gun made live hits out of five shots, another four of five and a third three of five. Y. M. C. A. Work Dr. Bagnell said that his success in seeing so many liases and military headquarters wus due to the ar rangement of the tour by the Y. M. C. A. The "Y" uniform also proved of much value to him in his visits and together with all necessary let ters of introducton from the Bureau of Public Information opened to him every available place. His observa tion of the Red Cross work was af forded by numerous visits to base hospitals one of which he inspected from top to bottom. He also was on Red Cross trains bringing men from the front and spoke to largo num bers of wounded soldiers. "My reception by the boys and their appreciation of my talks were the most enthusiastic demonstrations I ever saw. I have never had more appreciative listeners than those sol diers. To me It was amazing to note their attitude. The admiration of the people for them also was surprising. In ports where they landed or rail road centers where they were seen, great crowds always turned out to greet them." Among the first lectures which Pr. Bagnell will give here using infor mation which he gathered while overseas, will be "The American Sol dier in France." and "He That Put teth His Hand to- the and Looketh Not Back." . GERMANS ATTACK AMERICAN LINES IN VOSGES AREA Open Heavy Fire on Trenches; Bear Wounded Into Own Zone With the American Troop* In France, Sept. 11. —At 5.50 o'clock yes terday morning the Germans began a heavy artillery action on the Amer ican front lines In the Vosges region, sending over some 200 projectiles from their mine throwers and a thou sand heavy caliber shells. At 6.20 o'clock the enemy opened up a strong Are on the communication trenches. Reports from two observation sta tions were that sixty Germans were observed entering their own lines with wounded, but no reports from the American front lines had been received at this hour. It seems prob able that the raid which was deliv ered after the artillery fire. was | beaten off, with casualties' to the i enemy. Royal Engagement Angers Luxemburg London, Sept. 11.—A dispatch to The Daily Express from Amsterdam says the announcement of the engage ment of tlie sister of the Grand Duchess of Luxemburg to Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria has caused the deepest ill-feeling throughout the country, where the Germans are cordially hated. Political circles are also incensed at the reply received to their representations from a leading court official who described the mutter as purely private and as having nothing to do with politics. Luxemburg people say that the Grand Duchess ought to have forbid den the marriage of her sister An tonia with a man whq is known as "Luxemburg's Hangman," for •It amounts to selling the country to Germany at the moment when it is helpless under military occupation. It is believed the Luxemburg Parlia ment will appeal to the Grand Duch ess to take the eneeessary stops to render the marriage impossible.
