"More than once," he said during his speech, '"I have discussed questions with him and I know that he looks upon the government ot Pittsburgh as in effect a great business corporation, and that he would like to see it operated generally as other great business corporations are operated, with the Mayor in place of the president; the City Council in place of the board of directors; and all the citizens of Pittsburgh regarded as stockholders who have a common interest in the "enterprise. "He would have the police force composed of men chosen, not because of their political attachments, but because they will, under his direction, strive to protect life and property and suppress crime. He intends that the whole body of employes shall be limited by the actual requirements of the administration, and shall be chosen for their fitness and efficiency. His constant objective in this great work will.be the economical and progressive operation of the City of Pittsburgh. "In making this proposal I am aware that some men are saying that Mr. Herron would be officially controlled by political dictation; but. knowing him for many years, I know John Herron will recognize no master but his own conscience."

Up to now. the Democrats seldom have been a major threat to Penn sylvania Republicanism. If Mr. Mc- Nair is the Democratic nominee for j Mayor this fall, as many persons expect, he will be in the fight to! wm. No "fill-in" business this year. I While Bill McNair never has won ! a public office, his family has j stepped into governmental posts under imirie circumstances. ; The MeNairs have been a famous j family m Pennsylvania since before ; the American Revolution. Mr. Mc-N air's direct antecedents bought land from William Peim. Once Owned Wilkinsburg; Some of them came West and Wilkirwsburg once was known as McN'airtown. for a1 McNair owned it. The into on which the famous Hershey chocolate mills and the equally famous "company town" of Hershey now are located was sold to the founder of this firm by a i McNair. Alexander McNair went West to ; Missouri and family records lost j trace of him. But he ran against 1 the late Champ Clark's father for j Governor and was elected, the first ; chief executive of Missouri. j Bill McNair and the younger Champ Clark talked about it at a j Democratic convention years ago. ! Born Near Harrisburg Young Bill, son ofAlvin McNair. j a building contractor, and Maria : Swartz McNair, was born in Middle- i town. Pa., just South of Harrisburg. ! 57 year ago next October. i He went to school at Seiler's Academy, now the Harrisburg Academy, then Gettysburg College , and finally the University of Michigan law schooL Young men in those days still were harkening to Horace Greeley's advice about going West. The youthful lawyer wanted to go West, but he also wanted to stay in Pennsylvania. So he came to Pittsburgh, as far West as he could get and not leave the state. He entered the law office of Samuel J. Graham, later a deputy attorney-general under Woodrow Wilson. Since leaving that office, he has been "on his own." Brother Is Burgess Mr. McNair 's father always had been In Middletown politics and was a consistent Democrat. Harold V. McNair, a brother, now ,is burgess of the borough and recently created a local sensation by vetoing the entire borough budget for 1933. Veto of the budget relieved the i Middletown property-owners of all taxes for the year. Due to the shut- down of Middletown industry, the Crafton Heights Children Refused City Street Shower Pleas of children and their parents were denied today when the Bureau of Recreation refused to install a water sprinkler in their neighborhood. Twenty-six mothers, representing 62 boys and girls of the Twenty-eighth Ward, signed a petition to Mr. Fix-it of The Press asking for the shower to combat summer heat.

McAr die's Story Is Next in Series EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to his withdrawal as a candidate the story of William P. With-erow, announced yesterday, has been canceled. The last article in the series will be published Sunday in the Feature Section of The Press. The subject: P. J. McArdle. Mr. McNair stumped the state in the Democratic nomination and that of Michael J. Ryan, who opposed Vance C. McCormick for the guber MINOR DISORDERS GREET ENDOF STRIKE Three Arrested When 'Newsies' Return to Work Three youths were arrested during the night for interfering with newsboys who jesterday resumed selling the three Pittsburgh daily newspapers, the brief "newsie strike" settled satisfactorily. Only slight disorders were reported yesterday and today, all engendered by thugs who have no connection with the legitimate newsboys. Admas Stanisauskis, 18, of 1817 St. Patrick Street, and William Ger-hold, 18, of 505 Parkwood Road, were arrested at Brownsville Avenue and Nobles Lane on disorderly con- His Hat's Mayor John S.

Another Exponent of Greater Tax Law' and Arch Foe of 'Land Monopoly natorial nomination. Both Mr. Ryan and Mr. McNair stressed "land monopoly" as their issue. That issue has been Mr. Mc Nair's life-long talking point. He held, and still holds, that the way to stabilize taxation, promote landowning and industry and prevent land speculation is a tax on the principle of the "Greater Tax Law." It is this law. which Mr. McNair was instrumental in bringing about, under which Pittsburgh now collects its taxes, levying half the rate on buildings it levies on land. Pittsburgh's present favorable financial condition and its success in selling bonds at high premiums Mr. McNair attributes to this tax method. Proposes System for County He lately was active in promoting a similar system for the County and School Board and such a bill was introduced in the Legislature, but failed to come out of committee. Mr. McNair has been talking "land monopoly" and its auxiliary issues for 20 years and expects to keep it up as long as he lives. While stumping the state in 1914. Mr. McNair was married to Helen Seip, daughter of Dr. C. P. Seip, and they went on the campaign for their honeymoon. Another well-known political figure and his bride were on 'a joint honeymoon and campaign at the same time and the two couples met and talked frequently. The other figure was Giflord Pinchot, now Governor, then running for the United States Senate. Mr. McNair was interested in the Lawrenceville bathhouse and this took him into that neighborhood. He decided that the "land monopoly" was accountable for slum conditions and the relocation of factories. So he inaugurated his long campaign, preaching the soundness of the new tax plan as a means of encouraging building. Many disciples, of both parties, now support the plan. In 1921, Mr. McNair was the Democratic nominee for Mayor. Opposing William A. Magee, the Republican candidate, he was unhesitating and forthright in his denunciation of the Republican machine. Jailed for Political Speech While he was making a campaign speech on the North Side, he wras arested and thrown in jail until he posted a bond. Mr. McNair has no fraternal or social affiliations except the Odd Fellows. He lives at 1212 North Sheridan Avenue with Mrs. McNair and their two daughters, Helen. 15, who is a student at Peabody High School, and Elizabeth, 9, who attends Fulton School. His principal diversion is making Democratic speeches. MT. LEBANON MAN SEEKING JUDGESHIP William Kane to Run for Justice of Peace William A. Kane, former superintendent of Mt.

Coyne there can be no real probe, Representative William A. Walker today resigned from the Coyne Legislative Committee, investigating cost of government in Allegheny County. "I do not know who was responsible for my appointment, but it is evident that the influence of Senator James J. Coyne, the sponsor of the resolution, will dominate the committee." Mr. Walker said. Political Views Differ "I do not subscribe to the samt political principles or activities and j belong to an entirely different school I of political thought and therefore ask to be relieved of my duties. "I believe there can be no real investigation under the circumstances, of the real conditions in Allegheny County which are making the ownership of homes a great burden to our people due to high taxation." Representative Walker yesterday filed his nominating petitions with the state election bureau as a candidate for judge of the Allegheny County Court. Mr. Walker will seek the Republican nomination. Political Weapon Charged The Coyne committee has been in existence for months. Its first attacks were upon the Board of Education, which Senator Coyne allegedly had sought to swing under his political dominance. At the first meeting Mr. Walker presented a - resolution, which was adopted in the absence of Senator Coyne, to investigate the County Delinquent Tax Collector's office. Senator Coyne twice has defeated attempts to abolish this office, now held by John Brown, Jr., his, ally. The last Legislature, adopting a counter-measure sponsored by Senator Coyne, cut the 10 per cent fees to 5 per cent. The office in four years averaged a clear "profit" to the former collector of $83,000. In one year the "take" was more than $100,000. DREESENS' BATTLE RETURNSTO COURT Awning Dealer Now Held Under New Charge William Dreesenr 51, East End awning dealer, was held for court under $1,000 bond last night on an aggravated assault and battery charge preferred by his wife. It is the third court action the Dreesens have been in since Mrs. Dreesen invaded the home of ner husband's secretary, Mrs. Helen Richards, 38, of 6388 Jackson Street, and was. she charges, beaten by Mrs. Richards and Dreesen. These three and the Dressen's eldest son, Robert, 25, were fined $5 each in Morals Court last Saturday. Mrs. Dreesen, who is 48, already has sued Mrs. Richards for $25,000 in an alienation of affections suit in Common Pleas Court.

PETER J. DONAIIOE WITHEROW OUT, BACKS M'ARDLE (Continued from Page 1) lone, for weeks, has been the only announced candidate on the anti-Coyne side. Speculation naturally centered today on whether Mr. Mackrell will announce and what Mr. Malone will do. Mr. Malone has said repeatedly that he would not follow a course to aid the Coyne-Herron cause. Mr. McArdle has been in City Council many years. He was first elected in 1911 but was out for two terms as a result of defeats by the Republican machine. He supported Mr. Malone for Mayor four years ago and, as a candidate for a nomination for Council on the Malone ticket, was defeated by the Kline-Coyne machine. He came back in 1931, winning a Republican nomination with the support of, the Independent voters against the Kline-Coyne machine. He led the field of candidates at the Republican primary. Mr. Witherow, in terminating consideration of himself for the mayoralty, said: "Many citizens of Pittsburgh have urged me to become a candidate for Mayor. I highly appreciate and value their extraordinary expressions of confidence in my ability to undertake this task. "The apolitical destiny of Pittsburgh is in a critical condition. Un less concentrated and unified effort is regimented amongst the men and women who are alive to the seriousness of the conditions confronting us, no real accomplishment will be attained. "The welfare of the people of this city is the paramount issue. Per sonal considerations must be sub ordinated to the ultimate end. Co ordination is vital. "I, therefore, ask that my name be withdrawn from any consideration for the office of Mayor, and urge those who have been most interested in my support, and the citizens gen erally, to throw their influence and backing to the candidacy of P. J. McArdle. "His record in service to the city of Pittsburgh has demonstrated high honesty, efficiency and ability. He has unwaveringly fought the battle against the previous and present Republican machine. His principles of government represent those for which we have been striving. "I earnestly ask and urge a vigorous and militant campaign in behalf of Mr. McArdle. He is outstanding in ability to give Pittsburgh proper government, has been thoroughly tested and found secure, and is a man for whom the people of Pittsburgh should have great enthusiasm in vesting their confidence. His Face! 1 FRIDAY, JULY 21. 1933 Newsboy and Politician He Started Rise to Fortune in Small Stand 30 Years Ago Peter J. Donahoe, who rose to a commanding position in the retail grocery business from a modest start as a food stand proprietor, died sud- denly in his Stanton Heights home here yesterday. Mr. Donahoe, president and founder of the firm which bears his name, was found dead in a chair on his front porch an hour after he had returned from his main store on Fifth Avenue. Apparently in the best of health for all of his 75 years, he had died from a heart attack. His death ended a career of more than half a century in the political and business life of Pittsburgh. Before he had launched Donahoe, Inc., he had served three terms in the old Common Council, as alderman and as a police magistrate. Began in Middle Age In one respect his career differs from the fictional tale of success." For Mr. Donahoe had approached middle age an age when the majority of men have settled in their life business when he opened the tiny food stand destined to grow into a concern of more than 20 stores in Pittsburgh and the district. And this venture, his friends say, began when he had "hardly a dime," and when he was" about 45 years of age, and had decided to give up public life for a private business. Son of Irish parents in modest circumstances, Mr. Donahoe was born Feb. 16. 1858 in the old First Ward. While attending public schools he sold newspapers in downtown Pittsburgh, and helped support his family. When 15 he became an apprentice printer in the old Pittsburgh Dispatch and worked for several years with that paper. In his early manhood he entered politics and in 1886 was elected to Common Council, serving until 1890 when he was elected alderman of the First Ward. He resigned this post for a seat in Select Council and two years later s appointed police magistrate, sitting in Central Station for three years. He became the recognized Republican leader in the Tenth Ward, where he served as Ward Chairman. He had lived on Chislett Street while chairman, later moving to the home in Stanton Heights. About 30 years ago he turned to private business. While influential in ward politics, his political experience had not been profitable and it was virtually a "penny venture" when he opened a butter and egg and coffee stand in the old Pittsburgh Market. Groceries Grow , Rapidly He profited and next opened a grocery store on Butler Street in Bloomfield. Then came a second store and a third until Donahoe's, Inc., had expanded to the present large concern, climaxed in 1923 when the large store On Fifth Avenue was opened." .- " ! ' ' . The concern, in addition to this store and another large downtown market, operates 21 branches. Several years ago Mr. Donahoe .returned to politics for a short period to serve again as chairman in the Tenth Ward in the regime of Mayor Charles H. Kline. In late years he had repeated clashes with the "regular" machine. Hardly ill a day, Mr. Donahoe had personal charge of the concern almost to his very death. Stores to Close Monday At 3:30 p. m. yesterday he had a business conference with Paul Rath-ert, his advertising manager, and left shortly after for his home. Frequently he had made the rounds of all his stores and was personally known to the hundreds of his employes. All of the stores will be closed Monday when funeral services will be held at St. Raphael's Catholic Church. One son, John A. Donahoe, flew here from Chicago early today. Another, Edmond, is flying to Pittsburgh from California. Other survivors are two sons, T. Kernan and Jerome T.; two daughters, Mrs. E. E. Tebbets and Mrs. Paul McCrory, and a brother, Thomas K. Donahoe, all of Pittsburgh. Mrs. Donahoe had die five yearg ago and the eldest son, Peter, Jr, about 10 years ago.
