Appreciates His Congratula
tions and Says That He
Would Talk to Him
The Interchange of congratulations
and thanks between Governor-elect
William C. Sproul and Judge Eugene
C. Bonniwell over the election seems
to have been exceedingly cordial.
Under date of November 6, Judge
Bonniwell wrote:
"In the Judgment of a decisive ma
jority of our fellow-citizens, I acqui
esce most cheerfully because of the
fact that the executive position de
volves upon yourself. I am quite
sure that, under all the cross-cUr
ients of the conflict, no other candi
date could have hoped to receive the
ringing endorsement given to you.
"Your commanding abilities as an
executive, your Irresistible charm as
a friend and the tolerance and
breadth with which you have always
met the men who differ with you In
politics or In any other matters, gave
to your candidacy an appeal that not
oven dissent from parts of your plat
form could to any degree Impair.
"Therefore, I congratulate you. I
trust that the victory, with the home
coming of Jack, will soften the sor
row that fell upon your household:
although I regret, and surely you do,
that your other son Is not here to
share your pleasure.
"The people of Pennsylvania are
entitled to the igreater amount of
congratulation. The Impending end
of the war creates at once a multi
tude of gigantic problems that you,
selected by the people of the state
without regard to faction or associa
i tion, can deal with In your own
broad, resolute manner, and restore
to the State of Pennsylvania the lus*
ter that the. old Keystone State so
justly deserves."
Addressing his late opponent as
"my dear Judge," Senator Sproul re
plied as follows:
"The fine letter of congratulations
which I have received from you has
greatly pleased me. I know that it
reflects your true feeling and I ap
preciate It thoroughly. All through
the campaign you have been courte
ous, fair and generous to me, and I
believe my own attitude toward you
has been the same. I feel that we
have conducted a campaign that has
been entirely free from personal at
tacks or party rancor. It has been
clean and decent In every way. This
is surely a satisfaction to both of us
and we have come through it with
our long-time friendship unimpaired,
and our cordial personal relations
really strengthened.
"You and I have similar interests
in many things of a public character,
our views and purposes coincide in
many important lines, and co-opera
tion in dealing with these matters.
I am more than happy to know that
I have your complete goodwill and
am proud to feel that I may com
mand your earnest service.
"With hearty regards and thor
ough appreciation, I am

Another Cent Added to
the Retail Price of Milk
Following the announcement yes
terday that the price of certified milk
in this city will be raised from nine
teen to twentyrfour cents after No
vember 10. comes a similar notifica
tion that ordinary milk will advance
one cent in price next week on both
quarts and pints. Thirteen cents in
stead of twelve for quarts, and seven
cents instead of six for pints are the
new prices fixed. The reason assign
ed for the raise in retail cost lies in
the increased price for milk pro
ducts asked for by wholesalers, who.
in turn. blame their move on the gen
eral aviation of prices and scarcity of
food. The Harrisbu'rg Milk Commis
sion has approved the new rates, as
has the Harrisburg Academy of Medi
cine that of. the certified products.

made me feel much younger.
"I recommend Tonall to every

a wonderful amount of good to suf

This testimony was given August
