CRITICAL STAGE IS REACHED Prtspset of Claib af An herity it Fhil dalpbU Touiy. CONFLICT BETWEEN SHERIFF AND MAYOR City Officials Sweat la Thoaaaad Extra r-llrnesEck Side Claims' Fleetloa by Big Majority. PHILADELPHIA, Nev. 1-The eve of the day toward which Philadelphia has been looking for six months to decide whether the municipal affairs of the city shall con tinue to be conducted as they have been In the past or whether a new order of things shall obtain, finds the situation so tense that no Phlladelphlan will be sur prised tomorrow if the pesos of the city Is seriously disturbed. Matters reached a critical stage today when the mayor of the city and the sheriff of the county, both of whom are" leaders In their respective parties. Issued antagonistic proclamations swearing to uphold the ' law and protect the cltlxens against the illegal ballots of the opposing side. The sheriff In his proclama tion calls upon cltlxens to assist deputies appointed by him to uphold the law and the mayor replied in a strongly worded procla mation In which he says: ' "The peace of the city, the supremacy of the law and the blood-bought lights of honest elections must and shall bo pre served." For the moment the question of majori ties has been lost sight of. Backing up his proclamation the mayor has sworn tn about 1.000 special policemen for election duty. The proclamation of Sheriff James L. Miles, who is the republican leader of the Thirteenth ward and chairman of the city committee, was published broadcast tn Philadelphia today. As soon us Mayor Weaver learned of''lt he consulted with his advisers and this afternoon he Issued the proclamation which was as unusual aa the one drafted by the sheriff. Mayo Weaver's Proclamation. . The mayor in his proclamation says: It has become public knowledge that cer tain conspirators against the public peace and welfare are planning unlawful ucls in connection with the election tomorrow. Of this criminal combination James L. Miles Is the official hend and has, ostensibly In his office as sheriff, by a so-called iroclama lion, announced that he Intends to uppolnt so-called deputies of the sheriff at the poll ing places of this city. I am informed that the sheriff of the county In his capacity of leader of the lawless combination referred to, has been In consultation with lawbreakers and the enemies Of law and order for the purpose of devising some means for the prevention of an honest and free expression of the popular will at the election to be held to morrow. This object they hope to effect by having him, as sheriff, commission so called deputy sheriffs to perform services at the polling places In deflnnue of the ex pressed prohibition Of the law. The mayor, continuing, quotes the law against such an action on the part of the sheriff and urges every cltlsen to resist In every way possible all deputy sheriffs who may in any way interfere with their rot, Ing.' - The proclamation, In concluding says: I hereby warn aYly -perton from attempt In to exercise the functions or powers of deputy sheriffs at the polls, and I partlcu- Iarly and especially Warn Jamea L. Miles, ilgfi sheriff of the eounty of Philadelphia, prostituting his hlsrh ofFce to the crlrnjnal purposes of the organisation of which he Is chelrniBn, aralnst appointing or com missioning any person to act aa deputy sheriff at the polls. As all such persons appointed by him would, under such circumstances, be law breakers, ought to be and will be treated accordingly.- Theesce of the city, the supremaoy of ..the- law and the blood brought rights qC honest "electors must and shall be preserved. '" . Sheriff packs Down." Subsequent to the mayor s proclamation Sheriff Miles Issued 'a statement saying: I will not reply to the -vicious attacks and personal abuse of the mayor, but I will say that no deputies have been appointed by me for the election, that I will appoint none and that I have never seriously con sidered such appointments. He said he did not consider the act pro hibiting the appointment of deputy sheriffs for election purposes as constitutional, and If he thought It proper to do so he would have no hesitancy in appointing deputies. He preferred, he: said,' to place the whole responsibility for the preservation of the peace on the mayor, where It belongs. The headquarters of the various political organisations Kept large forces of clerks at work all day and evening finishing up the work of the campaign. Great efforts are being made' to bring out the stay-at-home electors. Doth Claim Blgr Majorities. The managers of both sides gave out pre dictions today thrtt their candidates would sweep the city. The republican claim their ticket will win by 60,000 majority. The city party asserts that K candidates, who have the Indorsement of the democrats. Inde pendent democrats, prohibitionists and the Lincoln party, wfll carry the city by at least 60,000. t'nlted States Senator Penrose and Chair man Wesley R. Andrews of the republican state committee say they' look for republi can victory In the city and that J. Lee Plummer, republican candidate for state treasurer, will carry Pennsylvania by up wards 'of 100,000. Their prediction la dis puted by Democratic National Committee man James M. Guffey and the Lincoln party managers,' who claim that William H. Berry will defeat Plummer. Berry la the democratic nominee and has the In dorsement of the Llnooln party, independ ent democrats and prohibitionists. Seooad Statement ky Sheriff. Sheriff Mills issued a statement In which he said the peace and order of the county is committed to his keeping by his com mission from the governor. He character ised the statements in the mayor's mani festo as false, and charged that tbe mayor's director of public safety made Incendiary speeches -calculated to create disorder. The sheriff's statement further charges that "hundreds of irresponsible characters have been appointed as special policemen for servloa on election day, calling them professional gamblers and criminals of various degree. The statement concludes by charging the mayor with insincerity ii hla announce ment. ' ALMOST EVERYBODY is coughing. It is the time of year when people are most sus ceptible to celeb.

The president stated that of course he had been watching with the deepest concern the re ports of these massacres; that he had been appealed to within the last few weeks to try to take some action not only on behalf of the Jews In Russia, but In behalf of the Armenians. - Poles and Finns. The result of the president's Inquiries coincide with statements contained in a cablegram from Count Wltte to Jacob H.

All I can do to stop the disorders Is done, but aa the country is in sucn an unsettled state the local authorities are often powerless."
