HEART OF BIG

Great Cruisers in

in Defeat
By Associated Hrcss
Ftlinburgli. Nov. 22. Germany,
as a, naval power, has, ceased to
exist. The heart of her mighty
tleet—fourteen ships of the line,
seven light cruisers and fifty destroy
ers yesterday surrendered to an
armandu of British. American and
French vessels, the greatest fighting
force that ever stood out to sea.
Admiral Beatty's historic signal
after the German fleet had been
moored at the appointed place was:
"The German flag is to be hauled
down at 3.57 and is not to be hoisted j
again witnout permission.'
The minutely detailed program
of submission laid down by the com- I
armada of British. American and'
ried out strictly according to plan.
The German warships, strung out in
u single column almost twenty miles
long, appeared at the rendezvous at
the appointed time and were led
into the Firth of Forth between twin
columns of Allied ships which over
lapped the Germans at each end.
I.ast night the enemy craft were an
chored in the Firth, under guard as
prisoners.
A surrender on such a gigantic
scale has no precedent in naval his
tory. The surrender automatically
raised the United States to second
position among the world's naval
powers.
The German ships were sighted
My the Allied columns.at Si.2o o'clock
docilely following their British pilot
the light cruiser Cardiff, which with
destroyers and other small craft,
had ranged ahead of the Allied fleet.
Every vessel steaming out to meet
them flew ensigns and was ready to
annihilate the enemy's forces if their
mission proved to be other than
peaceful.
Five American battleships, the
New York. Texas, Arkansas, Wyom
ing and Florida, were prepared to
fire every gun If the signal was given
by Bear Admiral Rodman.
Weigh Anchor ill Moonlight
The main Allied fleet extending
over a line fourteen miles long in
the Firth of Forth began to weigh
anchbr at 1 o'clock in the morn
ing. It was moonlight. The ships

SKIP STOPS TO
I REMAIN WITH
j COMING OF PEACE
Elimination of Alley Stops
Has Resulted in Quicker
v Service
j It is hardly likely that the old
! schedule of stops will be resumed in
: Harrlsburg, although street car
j companies now are being relieved of
j the 'skip stop',' regulations imposed
j during the war as a fuel conserva
j tion measure, it was learned to-day.
j Willie Felix M. Davis, 'superintend
i ent of transportation of the Harrls
j burg Railways Company, wan not
| prepared to say what the opipfon of
! the directors of the Harrlsburg Rail
' ways Company Is concerning the re
i sumption of the multiple stops, he
did say that the service under the
new system is greatly improved. Pa
trons of the company, he said, would
be annoyed with the resumption of
stops at every half square and the
contingent slowing U,own of the ser
vice.
Service Is Bettered
Mr. Davis said that with the re
duced number of Btops, In addition
to the quicker service for long run
passengers, there is less tying up of
traffic. Cars which formerly were
forced to stop at every half square,
constantly were losing their places
in the schedule, and cofifusing traf
fic, Mr. Davis said. He expressed
it as his opinion that patrons would
sooner walk a half block for a car
! and then secure quicker service, .than
be able to board a car at any corner
; or alley, and then be subjected to the i
annoyance of numerous unnecessary
| stops during one short haul. The :
i skip stop was recommended by the
' experts who last year made the sur
i vey of conditions here.
! It Is likely, however, that a few of
I the stops eliminated during the skip
stop period, will be replaced. This
I would apply only to where the skip
■ stops make the distance between
I stops so long 'as to depreciate the
! service, it was said.

Druggists Who Sell Alcohol
Without Medication Are
Threatened With Arrest
Evidence that so-called non-bev
erage alcohol is being sold in this
city without sufficient compounding
was brought tQ light to-day througli
a statement issued by Collector of
Internal Revenue B. F. Davis, in
which he warns pharmacists against
dispensing such alcohol contrary to
Federal rulings. The government
permits the sale of this article only
between bonded dealers, and it can
not legally be obtained under a phy
sician's prescription unless it is so
compounded or medicated as to ren
der it unfit for u9e as a beverage.
The statement to-day said that in
formation has been received by the
collector that pharmacists are dis
pensing the "non-beverage alcohol"
on physicians' prescriptions without
medication its prescribed by the Bu
reau of Internal Revenue. The Bu
reau prescribes that alcohol can be
furnished in this manner under one
of ten formulae, but unless In the
compounding it is <o medicated as
to-render it useless as a beverage, it
is a clear violation of the law.
The only other way in which such
alcohol can be obtained Is by per
mits obtained through bonding, and
Bale without medication is permitted
only by one bonded dealer to another
bonded dealer. In case of prescrip
tion compounding, the druggist will
be held responsible as to the suffi
ciency of the medication. It Is thought
that/ the warning issued to-day per
tains in particular to such cases
where Insufficient compounding has
not been observed.
