CITY NEEDS 4,000 MORE HOMES FOR IMMEDIATE USE Building Boom Forecast With Higher Prices For Materials At th® annual fall banquet of the Harrisburg Real Estate Board held Uat evening In the Senate Hotel, G. M. Appleby, of Appleby Brothers & Whlttaker. told the diners that 4.000 homes would be necessary within the next few years if Harrisburg svae to properly take care of hous ing demands. Mr. Appleby said that material markets are very much behind la their deliveries, in some cases two or three months. The high water mark of production may not come for ten years, and Harrisburg real estate men should not be afraid o. building too much, for the need is too great for that. .. , , h . He was of the opinion that the present value of the dollar would Bet alter very materially, but that after several years, possibly, of con fused times, the people would grad ually come to accept the new stand ard- Then, said Mr. Appleby, a greater demand for homes will come. , A Much higher prices, but a greater building boom than this city has ever seen were predicted by E. C. Snyder, an Allison Hill lumect dealer. Mr. Snyder was of the opinion that this building boom would spread all over the country, as the other regions are just as baa ly off for houses as we are here in Central Pennsylvania. The boom would force up the prices of h",a terials on account of the demand, and in addition freight rates, in creased traffic and labor conditions would all have their effects. According to Mr. Snyder, there was much lumber wasted during the war, and with the cutting down of one tree, Its neighbor's value was so much Increased. The demand lor homes more than offset these disad vantages. and they should go right ahead with building all they could. J. E. Gipple presided at the ban quet and told the real estate men that they were deriving a two-fold benefit from the meeting. First, the privilege of listening to two very interesting experts and second, the opportunity of talking things over with their business opponents. The day of the real estate "shark" has past, said Mr. Gipple, as well as the day of antagonism. A. C. Voung reported on the At. lanttc City convention, which a number of local men attended. Greater opportunities than ever be fore for real esate men was the key note of the convention, said Mr. Young. William S. Essick and E. Moes lein, members of the board, gave short talks. The latter epoke for better organization as essential tor securing better laws. Fifty members attended the ban quet. The committee in charge in cluded: Stanley Backenstoes, chair man; A. C.

I TUESDAY EVENING* RAILROAD NEWS READING REPORTS HEAVY TRAFFIC Sunday Rush Brings New Rec ords; Need Cars and Supplies Another new record came last Saturday and Sunday on the Phila delphia and Reading Railway In handling freight traffic. On the Har risburg and Reading divisions a total of 18,000 cars were moved; and on Sunday 17,000. This is an increase of 1,000 over the week ending September 6. On these two. days 2,200 cars loaded with anthracite coal were brought from the mines and scut over the main line. On Sunday the Reading transported 4,700 cars east and west over the Lebanon Valiey branch, and 2,700 on East Penn. There is a great demand for cars in the soft coal regions. Within the past two days 2,700 empty cars have been delivered at Rutherford for distribution. Badly In Need of Material The Reading is badly in need of cars and material. Orders have been issued to use no coal cars for hauling crushed stone until the soft ( coal regions are supplied. Other lines are helping out in this de mand. As to rails and other ma terial there has been considerable difficulty in getting supplies. In an interview with Charles M. Schwab, published in New York, the steel leader is credited with stating that the railroads in their present state are In need of much new equipment. He estimates that of rails alone the roads will have to place orders for fully 5,000,000 tons within the next twelve months. This will bring about a record consumption of rails in any one year, the previous high record oe ing in 1906, when 4,977,877 tons were produced. Rail and equip ment orders on the part of the railroad administration since the beginning of the year have been on a very small scale, and, in fact, this has been so ever since the European war started i" 1914.

Evangelicals Meet For Important Conference A very important unification meet ing was held yesterday in the Park street United Evangelical church by the Evangelicals of the two adjoin ing conferences. The forenoon session was devoted to prayer. These prayer hours were led by Dr. A. E. Gobble of Albright College and Rev. A. G. Flexer. pas tor of Harris Street United Evan gelical church. A deep interest was shown in the needs of the church and many petitions arose In her be half. The afternoon session was given to the consideration of two import ant topics. The discussions were introduced with addresses by Kov. C. L. Sones who spoke very help fully on the pressing needs of the church during the time of "Our Forward Campaign" and the union with the Evangelical Association by Bishop W. F. Heil in which he set forth the present situation of the proposed union. Interesting discus sions followed each address. The evening session was largely attended by the Evangelicals of Har risburg and vicinity. The general topic was "Our Forward Campaign" under two heads: "The Better Unit ed Evangelical Church in the Mak ing" by Dr. Hunt, president of Al bright College. He said in part that In the coming days through the for ward move we will have better preachers, a church with a broader vision which will take in the im provement of the social order, the recognition of the brotherhood of man. emphasis upon the fundament als as it was In the beginning. Bish op U. F. Swengel spoke on the other phase of the topic "The Church Aft er the Campaign Visualized." He held up a beautiful picture of the improved church after the campaign has transformed It. Large delegations of ministers were present from both of the con ferences.

HAJUEUSBXTRO TELEGRXPBC MACEDONIA IN BITTER NEED People Are Starving With Women in Rags; Money Needed For Relief Stores of the sufferings of men. women and children in Mace donia are being told every day in the newspapers. None have been exaggerated according to Kosta Christoff who was in Harrisburg to day. "The story has not been half told," is the way this young man expressed it this morning. He has with him hip 65-year-old mother. The latter was rescued from this starving country by her son. Christoff left the United States for Macedonia on May 12. His sole purpose was to bring back his mother and see for himself the suf fering of his people. He is a citizen of the United States and is in busi ness at Youngstown, Ohio. On his arrival at the home of his mother in Macedonia he found her weak from lack of food. She had but one i meal in three days. This is the average for these starv ing people, according to this young man. His description was graphic and he told of seeing a priest shot down because he was defending the honor of his daughter who had been attacked. Strong were his praises for the Red Cross which is doing everything possible for these people, but in the opinion of Kosta Christoff there is much more to do. He urges American people to send money, -clothing and food to this starving country. He said the peo ple there work from 3 a. m. to 7 p. m., raising tobacco and receive but 35 _ cents a day. Pictures were brought back showing Macedonians who had been killed or died, and those of others still living. Some of these pictures is the first news of what has happened to many rela tives and friends of Macedonians in Harrisburg and Steelton. Hundreds of letters have never been answered. It was glad news for many, even with the sad stories that came with the photographs. Kosta Christoff spoke' Sunday at the Macedonian church, Steelton, and told a large congregation there, how his people were starving and in rags, and some with scarcely any clothing at all to cover their bodies. He succeeded in raising a fund and to-day plans were started to send to Macedonia several young men who will take with them clothing, food and money. This son with his mother, will leave to-morrow morn ing for Youngstown. 11 | Poems of Optimism TWO poems read by Douglas Malloch at a recent Chamber of Commerce luncheon made | such an impression that the Harris burg Telegraph asked Mr. Malloch for permission to reprint them.

That's what a* rolltop desk is for— To lock your troubles in. Work all the day and ponder o'er Your competition's sin, Work all the day till night, and then, Forgetting fortune's frown. Put all your troubles in again And pull the rolltop down! GIVE THEM THE BEST "YOU HAVE GOT Sure, they will scoff at your schem ing, Sure, they will question your plan, Sure, they will laugh at your dream ing, So ev'ry dreamer began. Ask of the fellows who do things, Ask of the follows who won. What thought the world of the new things, Things that had never been done? Scheme for them, dream for them, labor, Whether they want it or not — Pencil or chisel or saber, Olve them the best you have got. Sure, they will pass it unheeded, This that is soul of your soul, Grudging the word that is needed Helping you on to the goal. "Must I with something pursue them, Begging from door unto door? When what is common will do them, Why should I offer them more?" Why? In achieving is living! Why? Are your visions forgot? Give for the sake of the giving— Give them the best you have got! Though the whole office refuses, Though you are scorned by the host, You are the fellow who 4oses When you do less than the most. Stop not for sulking or sorrow, Keep at the thing you are at, Doing your best, that to-morrow You may do better than that. If to your goal you are going It does not matter a lot.

It is aimed to have this ready before the city welcome-home demon stration. I Peril of General Labor Strike Declines, but Boston Takes No Chances Boston, Sept. 16. There were grounds for hope to-day that a gen eral strike in sympathy with the police who quit their post last Tues day be averted. These were found largely In the sentiment which favored recourse to the courts in an effort to have the strikers reinstated. Strike sentiment is known to be strong in certain union quarters and Frank H. McCarthy, New England organizer for the American Feder ation of Labor, and President Michael J. O'Donnell, of the Cen tral Labor Union, in a formal state ment last night, justified the action of the police and attributed to Po lice Commissioner Curtis complete responsibility for lawlessness that ensued. It was repbrted to-day that the Supreme Court might be asked to grant a writ of mandamus com pelling the Police Commissioner to reinstate the strikers. Adjournment yesterday without provision for an other meeting before next Sunday of the Central Labor Union was ac cepted as indicating that a general strike was not imminent. Officers of the Are department will not Join in a sympathetic strike to aid the policemen. This was an nounced to-day after a meeting of the directors of the officers' club which represents fifteen per cent, of the fireflghtlng force of the city. The vote was unanimous. At the same time Fire Commissioner Joiuv R. Murphy announced that he "had reason to believe" that the firemen as a whole would remain loyal to the city. The policemen's union and the trade unions which have already en dorsed the strike appeared to-day io be marking time until the full strength of the sympathetic vote which is being taken among various affiliated locals, could be deter mined. The announcement that Mayor Peters and Commissioner Curtis had agreed on a minimum addition or S3OO to the pay of the police, it was believed, would result in a marked increase in the number of applicants for positions. This Increase would bring the minimum pay of police men to $1,400. While nearly 100 unions were said to have voted on the question of sympathetic action, with several large locals, including the telephone operators' union, expected to ballot to-day, the agitation for a general strike appeared to bo considerably lessened. Final action on the pro posal is not looked for before the regular meeting of the Central Lu bor Union next Sunday. That the military authorities have planned for an indefinite stay of the State Guard troops, who are pa trolling the city, was indicated by the arrangements made for their comfort and the receipt of a large quantity of clothing and supplies to day. Every guardsman was given new shoes, socks, shirts and under wear. Registration Opens For Wharton Extension School The registration for the evening extension course of the University of Pennsylvania opened last night at the rooms of the Chamber of Commerce. Despite the inclement weather quite a number of alumni and prospective students turned out. The unusually large number of in quiries promises well for a record enrollment. Thomas A. Budd, who will direct the work in accounting during ti.e college year, is in charge of the registration, and will be glad to Uio cußß the subject of higher business education with any who may be in terested. Registration will continue every evening, except Saturday, un til the. opening of the term on Oc tober 6. A special effort will be made this year to obtain the enrollment ot women. Many have registered in past years, but it is felt that thus far insufficient effort has been made to bring before them the exceptional opportunity which is offered them. Courses personally taught by Lhe faculty of the University of Penn sylvania will this year be offered in accounting, banking, commercial law, corporation, finance, real eslalo and insurance.

FIRST PAYMENT FOR SCHOOL SITE IS AUTHORIZED Board Engages Architect to Change Tech Into Junior High Resolutions authorizing the pay j ment of $5,000 toward the purchase price of the McKee-Graham tract at Sixth and Division streets, and di recting the employment of C. How ard Lloyd, architect, to present pre liminary plans and sketches for alterations to the Technical High School so that it can be used for an intermediate school, were passed at the special meeting of the School Board yesterday afternoon. Both motions caused much dis cussion among the members who spent much time in reviewing the high school situation and realty prices throughout the city. Some of the directors said that the delay in establishing the exact lines of the McKee-Graham tract prevented the Board from taking any action since it decided some weeks ago to make the purchase. The resolution passed yesterday was presented by Director' George A. Werner, and authorizes a temporary loan of $5,000, the money to be paid as part of the price for the Hoffman's Woods site. The resolu tion also gives the Board thirty days after the deed is ready to make the final payment. Director A. Carson Stamm oppos ed any new building at this time be cause it would involve increased taxation and increased taxa tion mean increased rents, and rents are not yet at the peak. He also said: "No further building is necessary now for other than orna mental purposes—except the addi tion of some rooms to the Steele Building—because the Junior schools could meet every legitimate depnand for four years and the two High schools could meet every need for an aqually long period. There was absolutely n necessity to add any thing now, in a time of high prices, to he present tax and rent burdens of the people. " Unless the building program be deferred for at least two years, as it can be without preju dice to anyone, a great and wanton waste of public moneys will result. Taxpayers and rent payers ought to wake up. It's too late to lock the stable when the horse is gone." Dr. C. E. L. Keen spoke of sub mitting the question to the voters to decide whether a high school should be erected on the Hoffman's Woods tract, but no motion was made and a vote of the Board was not taken. Dr. Keen also told of the soaring prices of vacant ground in the Al lison Hill district and warned against any delay in purchasing more ground in that part of the city. Other directors also told of advancing realty prices and their experiences in transfers. The motion to employ Mr. Lloyd to make sketches of plans for the addition to Tech was submitted by Harry A. Boyer, and Mr. Stainm again raised objections to building now. President Robert A. Enders fa vored the passage of Mr. Boyer'a resolution and urged the Board to approve it and plan for the future. He said he did not think the Junior High School plan was an experi ment any longer in Harrisburg and one should be provided in the cen tral part of the city. Work on tho new part of the Technical school could be carried on without inter fering with the use of the present building. Steel Organizers Meet at Pittsburgh to Talk Over Strike By Associated press. Pittsburgh, Sept. 16.—Organizers, fifty or sixty in number, engaged in unionizing steel workers in the Pitts burgh district, met here to-day to consider matters coming within their jurisdiction in connection with the proposed strike called for next Mon day. According to officers at union headquarters the meeting was called to discuss plans for the strike, ex change views and make further re ports of conditions at steel plants, if thev are called for by the national presidents of the unions interested in the steel industry. Members of the national commit tee for organizing iron and steel workers, made up of representatives of 24 unions, began arriving to-day for to-morrow's important meeting. This gathering is expected to decide definitely whether the walkout shall be deferred until after the industrial conference at Washington October 6 as proposed by President Wilson. No opinion was expressed by thase already on the ground as to what action will be taken but it is known that influential members of the com mittee, will urge that the strike be postponed until after the industrial conference, in the hope that it will place the unions in a better position to carry on their campaign for bettering the conditions of the work ers. Samuel Gompers, president of the American Federation of Labor, is a member of the committee and his word is expected to carry great weight. Mr. Gompers is reported to be in favor of a postponment if it does not bring injury to the work ers. There are leaders here, it is said, that will trv to convince the committee that the time for post ponements has passed. Bell Employes Hold First Fall Meeting The Bell Telephone Society of Har risburg, held Its first fall meeting In the auditorium of Fahnestock Hall last evening.

The principal speaker of the eve ning was George S. Reinoehl, who talked on "Some Telephone History." Air. Reinoehl has had twenty-one years of experience in the telephone work and has grown from the ranks entirely through his own efforts and was particularly well qualified to discuss the subject. He talked of the days when the telephone mana ger s job required a man who could sign a contract, collect a bill or fix a telephone. He explained how he had seen the telephone industry grow from a baby to the large com pany it is to-day. He also dwelt upon the differences between "revo lution" and "evolution." Other speakers were D. X. Swenk. of Altoona: C. F. Brtsbin, of Wilkes- Barre; J T. Harris, of Harrisburg and (.narlea E. Booser, of HarriH burg.

Toward the end he plays with double stop ping—on two strings at once; and the effect is that of two violins each playing a separate melody in harmony with the other; but no two violins could sound as Kreis ler's instrument sounds. The tone is clear, incinsive. irresistibly SD pealing. v C. M. Sigler, Inc. Victrola and Victor Records 30 N.
