"The Largest Sale of Any Medicine in the World" NEWS OF STEBLTOIS DETECTIVE DURNBAUGH IN DUEL WITH DESPERADO Subdues Prisoner With Blackjack Aft er Much Quick Sidestepping to Avoid Razor Cuts Which Captor Said Were Made at Him Detective I. M. Durnbaugh had an exuiting time with a recalcitrant pris oner whom he had placed under arrest at the prisoner's home in Harrisburg last night and, according to the de tective's versiot. of the affair, had a narrow escape from being seriously slashed with a keen-edged razor before the handcuffs were fastened to the re sisting one. Earlier in the evening Durnbaugh was given a warrant for the arrest of Ross R. Dickey, Hamilton street, Har risburg, on information made by his wife, Bessie, who charged that lifer hus band had committed an assault on her, showing numerous lacerations of the throat and neck where, she alleged, her husband had choked her on the even ings of May 6 and 7. When the detective reached the Dick ey home the man was found in bed. The warrant was served on the reclining man, who then arose, dressed and fol lowed the detective downstairs. Under pretext of getting some article in the kitchen, Dickey led the way, closely followed by Durnbaugh. In the semi darkness of the room Durnbaugh no ticed the man grab something from a cupboard and turn defiantjy on him. Quickly turning on a flashlight, he found the man had seized a razor, and it was only by quick sidestepping he avoided being cut by the many numer ous thrusts Dickey aimed at him. Pulling his club out, he finally land ed a blow on Dickey's head which sent the razor-wielder to the floor and in a few seconds the steel bracelets were placed on the prisoner's wrists. In ad dition to the charge of Mrs. Dickey, the defendant will have to face charges of felonious assault and battery with intend to kill and resisting an officer which Durnbaugh will present at the hearing to be held before Squire Gard ner next week.

MANY AT HILLIS MEETING Evangelist Discoursed Last Evening on "The Church in Action, or Re vivals"—Splendid Singing The tabernacle was well filled last evening and the splendid singing of the large (Mioir was favorably com mented on. A delegation of more than sixty persons, members of the S. of C. E., from the Highspire United Breth ren church, had a reservation in the tabernacle and by request sang a se lection. Prayer was offered by the Rev. Mr. Rhoad, pastor of the U, B. church, Highspire. Evangelist Hillis pr.eached from Psa 86-6, and Isa 59-1:2. Theme, "The Church in Action or Revivals." He eaid: "The first text is the cry of the people after God; and the second text points out the failure of the church. A genuine revival is the normal state of the church. Those who strike at re vivals, strike at the heart of the church and those who oppose revivals are like the devil who approves their attitude. The business jx-ople believe in a re vival of business, and Christians should believe in a revival of religion. Some object to evangelistic movements be cause it takes monev out of town." He said "church people are bug house. To such people it is all right for a circus to take $30,000 out of town, but all wrong for the churches to spend SSOO on a religious campaign for souls. It is all right for a prize lighter to win SIOO,OOO in a single day, but all wrong for an evangelist to receive a few hundred dollars for six weeks of soul savirog work. In many places they need a back door revival, that is turn useless members out of the church.'' He closed his sermon toy pleading for a revival of Christian responsibility; a revival of Christian work, and for a re vival of the preaching of the old gospel. The Saturday evening meeting will be High school night or young people's service. The theme for this services will be "Elements of Success in Life." SURPRISE FOR MRS.

DUES II Attorney General Says Proposed Compensa tion Law Doesn't Vi olate Italian Treaty HE DEFENDS THE MEASURE Head of Pennsylvania Law Department Takes Issue With the Federal Sec retary of State Who Wrote Letter to Governor Brumbaugh Secretary (Bryan, of the Department of State, Washington, it became known here to-day, addressed a letter to Gov ernor Brumbaugh stating 'tihat " tihe De partment is of opinion that the pro posed compensation act, uow under con sideration of the Legislature, is viola tive of the provisions- of the treaty of February 25, 1913, between the United States and Italy," in that it apparent ly discriminates against alion dependent widows and children not residents of t'he United States as *.-om;ared with residents in the matter of t>lie amount of compensation to bo paid; discrimi nates against alien dependents not res idents of the United States, as com pared wit'h residents, in the matter of computing future installments of compensation,-by providing for the pay ment of such aJien dependents of less amounts tihan are to toe paid to resi dents; and, also, discriminates against alien non-resident widowers, parents, brothers and sisters, as compared to resident relatives of the degrees men tioned." t , ■Governor Brumbaugh referred the letter of Secretary Bryan to Attorney General Brown, who to-day answered Secretary Bryan to the effevt that, aft er careful consideration, "I respectfully beg leave to differ from your conclu sions." After quoting the provisions of the proposed workmen's compensation tew, and the treaty between t'he United States and Italy, Attorney General Brown savs: "The proposed workmen 's compensa tion act is in no sense violative of the lights secured by this treaty. It pro vides that citizens of Italy residing in t'he United States shall be protected in respect of their rigihts, including ('hat form of protection granted by ■State or national law which establishes a civil responsibility for injuries or death caused by 'negligence or fault.' Tho right to recover compensation un der the proposed act is not predicated on 'negligence or fault,' but compensa tion is provided for regardless of the cause or circumstances of the injury, except where the injury is self-inflicted, hence the act does not come within the purview of the treaty. And further, ac ceptantce of the provisions of the act is not compulsory, and any one who does not elect to accept them may sue for fuTl damages in t'he same manner as heretofore for any injuries sus tained." Attorney 'General Brown then dis cusses the various provisions of the act and says they do not violate any of the previsions of the treaty.
