' Underwood & Underwood SUPPLY OF SUGAR IS EXHAUSTED; MEAT CHEAPER Housewives Feel Shortage in Midst of Canning and Pre serving Period The sugar supply of the city Is becoming exceedingly low. Some merchants report that their supply is entirely exhausted and that they are finding difficulty in re plenishing It. Some others report that their supply is.very short, anfl most have adopted the plan in vogue during the war of supplying only a limited quantity to each customer. The shortage is being felt seriously by housewives who are canning and preserving peaches. Wholesale houses of the city re port similar conditions prevailing with them. None have reported an l entire exhaustion of supply, but m practically every instance they re port that tlietr supply is low. Just now prospects for replenish ing the supplies are not particularly bright, manufacturers, for some rea sons, have been unable to get orders to this and other cities in the quan tities needed. While the supply L nearing the danger line, wholesalers and merchants generally do not look for a famine. Meat Prices Lower The high cost of living is getting somewhat of a Jolt in the meat trade, according to reports from city meat The tendency now, according to the report of officials at one city wholesale house, is to wards lower meat prices. This ten dency, however, is not particularly strong and may ldter prove unre liable. 1 It is somewhat early to tell what may be expected in meat pricej, although the tendency is undoubt edly downwards, according to one wholesaler. It depends altogether, they say, on the price at which they are able to purchase live stock. One city house reports that the prices of various grades of pork have fallen, ranging from two lo four cents per pound. Beef prices, it is said, remain about the same. League Venture in Form Negotiated, One of Peril to Republic 3y Associated Press. Washington, Sept. ll.—Declaring his intention to vote for amendments to the Peace Treaty, Senator Hard ing, Republican, of Ohio, told the Senate to-day that every day of dis cussion, Presidential utterances In cluded, and every hour of study combined to persuade him that the "League of ations venture, in the form in which the Covenant has been negotiated, is one of peril to the Republic." To accept it unaltered, he argued, would be a betrayal of America. "I can never vote to ratify with out safeguards," said the Senator, "and I mean to vote for the amend ments proposed by the committee. If the President is correct in declar ing the proposed reservations will send the Treaty back, then amend ments will not unduly delay. If the world is to start all over again, It ought to start with the square deal The Treaty has not written It, the square deal was reserved for In formal promises." Pointing out that this country had sought no territory. Senator Hard ing said if Europe will barter in territories and peoples we cannot htndqj;., "but we need not approve and surely we need not guarantee." "It Is my deliberate conviction," he said, "that the League of Nations Covenant creates a super-govern ment of the nations which enter It, or it will prove the colossal disap pointment of the ages."

MERCHANTS HEAR FIRST LECTURE Opening of Series of Business Talks Well Attended by C. of C. members Frank Stockdale, retail merchant expert, spoke to about 100 repre sentative Harrisburg merchants last evening in Fahnestock Hall in the firrjf of three meetings which the Chamber of Commerce has arrang ed. This evening Mr. Stockdale will speak on "The Measure of a Mer chant," when he will tell the mer chants of this city some of the things they must be well qualified in if they are to be To-mor row night he will talk on "Sales people of To-day and To-morrow." Both merchants and their sales people are especially invited to this meeting, which will take place in Fahnestock Hall at 7.30 o'clock as will the meeting this evening. Mr. Stockdale last night told his hearers in an informal, conversa tional way, how to meet the compe tition of to-day. Organization is the strength of competition, he said, and to be a success in business to-day the merchant must conduct his af fairs along commonsense lines. The type of store is not the essential thing, but the way you take care of it. Good organization is what brings success, and the chain store is for that reason so successful. One thing which Mr. Stockdale said brought many merchants awav thinking hard. He told them that their window displays were not built right. "Build from the bottom up, and not in depth," said the expert, "for the casual passerby is interested only in what is on a level with his eyes and out where he can see it, not stuck back in the shadow of partitions. Not to have a proper window display loses you men hun dreds of dollars every year." Mr. Stockdale also told the re tailers they should co-operate more and hold get-together meetings. The results of these meetings, he said, would be an increased business for every one of them and a greater efficiency all the way along. The Chamber of Commerce, which is instrumental in getting Mr. Stockdale here and which is financ ing for his appearances, urge every merchant who can possibly do so to be present at the meetings to night and to-morrow. They are miss ing something which they really cannot afford to mißs. and should realize it, say the directors of the Chamber. WOMEN'S GOLE HANDICAP The golf committee of the Har risburg Country Club has arranged a handicap medal play for the wom en, on Saturday afternoon, hoping to thereby encourage them to enter tournaments.

The proposed alliance with the rail road and the transportation workers is modeled upon the lines of the British "triple alliance" of miners, railway men and transport workers which have proven such a powerful factor in the industrial and political life in Great Britain. All three proposals have been recommended in resolutions from local unions in all parts of the country. " Oppose Military Training After a preliminary survey of the hundreds of resolutions before it, the committee has decided to recom mend favorably to the convention declarations against universal mili tary service or any form of "mili tarism" in America and against lynching and mob violence, advo cacy of 100 per cent. Americaniza tion of the United Mine Workers by requiring application for first citi zenship papers as a condition of membership and endorsement of the League of Nations. Proposals to withdraw from the American Fed eration of Labor or to enter upon the formation of the "one big union" embracing all branches of labor, as advocated by local unions, will be adversely reported. Other local resolutions which will be re ported unfavorably were those to remove international headquarters from Indianapolis to Cleveland and on the principle of "one man one lob," to declare owners of more than forty acres of land or proprie tors or an equivalent business in eligible for membership in the miners' organization. On other resolutions before it, the attitude of the committee is not yet evident. BTG ORDER FOR STEKL RAILS The United States Railroad Ad ministration has placed an order for 200.000 tons of steel rails. This has been allocated between various plants of the United States Steel Corporation, the Rethlehem Steel Corporation, and the Lackawanna Steel Company. The proportions ap portioned to each have not been announced. Several of the railroads which are looking forward to a re turn to private ownership before an other year are said to be sending out inquiries as to rolling space for rails for 1920. In the case of one company it is said that space for a considerable tonnage has been re served. Plenty of Coal For Household Use This Winter, Expert Asserts Washington, Sept. 11. —Anthracite coal production this year will ex ceed by 2,000,000 tons the amount mined in 1917, the last normal year, according to the testimony of A. S. Learoyd, assistant to the president of the Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company, before the Senate Inter state Commerce CoAmtttee investi gating the general coal situation. He, as well as several other wit nesses. assured the committee that there was no reason to look for o shortage of anthracite coal this win ter.
