v • Monument of Emperor
Borne, Nov. B.— Trieste dispatches
announce that Italian warships have
entered the port of Zara. The Italian
flag was raised by Captain Deboc
card, who has been appointed mili
tary governor. The monuments of

hoff, former commander-in-chief of

CRCULATION OF
FALSE RUMOR

elated Press dispatches Harrisburg!
was saved the ignominy of holding a
premature peace celebration as the
officials and officers of the Harris
burg Chamber of Commerce recpg
nlzed that accuracy is the first con
sideration of the greatest news gath
ering association in the world.
Thousands Are Victimized
Even late into the evening thou
sands of people could hardly belicfve
they had been victimized because:
Secretary Lansing's statements had;
been hidden or thrown away by the
paper carrying the sensational
stories and the central part of the
city was thronged with crowds await
ing the parade that, of course, never
materialized.
Trolley cars and automobiles were
almost hopelessly jammed in Market
street, the lines at times extending
from the subway to the Square.
Thousands stood for hours waiting |
for later news which was given free
ly over the telephones leading into
the Telegraph editorial rooms. The
Telegraph's Associated Press reports
finally were passed about until the
excitement gradually died down.
Mayor to Give Signal
Many suburban towns were saved
from premature celebrations by get- j
ting the Associated Press reports j
from the Telegraph by long distance
telephone. The Telegraph answered !
scores of calls from points as far j
distant as seventy miles.
The Associated Press will give j
the details of the peace discussions
as the events occur and the service \
will announce authoritatively when
peace terms arc forced upon thp
enemy. When this time arrives Mayor
Keister will announce tluit Harris-1
burg is side in celebrating the glori
ous victory that lias been won by
American and Allied armies on the
field of battle.
Habitually Unreliable
It will be remembered that it was 1
the unreliable McCormick-controlied
newspapers which earlier in thd
week falsely worked the city into a '
fever pitch by a window bulletin on
which it was stated that peace prob
ably had been declared and that
Secretary Lansing was going to an
nounce the at 9 o'clock. The
Associated Press dispatch that night
prevented a parade for which bands
had been engaged by patriotic citi
zens. It will be remembered that it
was the same political organ which
announced the sailing of the Allied
fleets through the Bosphorus, which
feat has yet to occur; it will be re
membered that it was the same
newspaper that announced the fall
of Ghent days before the Allies
reached even the suburbs of that
city; it will be remembered that
it was fhe same newspaper which
announced the fall of Soissons five
days before that Important event
occurred. In each of these instances
the Associated Press carried its usual
correct version of the events of the
day. It has generally been recog
nized for years that this association's
stamp carries the weight of trust
with every story.
