Established 1831. Vol. 1.XIII., No. 282. HABRISBURG, PA., MONDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 26, 1894. WILL YOU HELP? DESERTING INSTITUTIONS Now is the Time to Hold Out the Helping Hand. Thb school children are again called upon this week for a Thanksgiving offering to the three charitable institutions in our city, the Home for the Friendless, the Children's Industrial Home and the Hospital. A small gift of potatoes or groceries from each child makes the aggregate amount sufficient to supply the wants of these institutions for these articles during a large portion of the winter. The children have for several years responded liberally at this season to this invitation and will, no doubt, do so again this year. The donations will be gathered up from the various school buildings on Wednesday afternoon and taken to the store room recently occupied by Mr. Fraley, No. 28 South Second street, where they will be divided and sent to the institutions above named. Thb foreign building and loan associations from other States which have located in Pennsylvania are about to be inquired into by the Attorney General's Department, there being two cases now before the Attorney Oeneral in which he is asked to issue his writ and cite these companies into court to show by what authority they do business in this State. It is surmised, from information in the department's possession, that these foreign associations are coming into Pennsylvania and taking away the money of Pennsylvania subscribers for the purpose of doing a banking business, which is contrary to the law. If this be true, on further investigation, they will be stopped from doing business in Pennsylvania. On Saturday, ya. Pittsburg, one of these foreign associations was closed by people who put money into it, and were given a great, large bluff when they tried to get their money back. It is a rule in almost all building associations that you get back at least what you put in, but this foreign affair doing business in Pittsburg endeavored to stave off the payment of even the face of the sum paid in on shares. It will have to face fourteen law suits before a court, and it will have a lively time explaining the qaeer methods under which it operates, and acknowledge the slickness it exhibited in securing subscribers. An inspection of its books shows that this association did not invest a cent of the vast urns it received in Pennsylvania, but Bent it away, nodody knows where, to be invested. What show have local subscribers when their money is hundreds of mites away in the hands of total strangers ? And bo, Gossip says again, invest your money at home with people that you know and with whom you come in daily contact You know where it is then. You have your eye on it yourself, so to speak, and you have your finger on it. It can't get away without your knowing it, and you know it is safe. There are many good building and loan associations at home. Gossip will not mention any one of them, for he feels quite certain that all are good, and conducted on sound business principles, satisfied with a reasonable percentage for money loaned. If any were not doing a legitimate business they would soon be discovered and go to the wall, but that is almost impossible so many are the opportunities for seeing and noting the inside workings. Invest your money at home with home companies, and it won't be sent to the four corners of the earth while you wait iu fear and trembling lest you have seen it for the last time. Thb surgeon and the physician are as necessary at a foot ball game as they are at a railroad accident. A game of foot ball is simply tho transformation of a freen field into a hospital. Hooray for roken bones and cracked ribs and dented skulls'. Everything goes. Biff! Bang! Wow! A Happy Man. Goes neck and neck with time, Nor reckons what he's missed ; Forgets the girl he Bnubbed, Remembers those he kissed. Life. CAPITOL HILL. A Pittsburg detective came to Harris - burg yesterday and was at the Executive Department bright and early this morning. He wanted a requisition for George M. Irwin, the discretionary pool manager, who has been arrested in New York. Counsel for Irwin asked for a hearing on the requisition and Governor Pattison has fixed a hearing for to - morrow afternoon at 4 o'clock. It is understood the granting of a requisition will be opposed on the ground that the offense is not extraditable. E. B. Black, the artist, went to Philadelphia to - day to superintend the packing and shipment of Rothermel's great picture of Gettysburg which will be placed in the new Utate Museum.

Wigloy "Some of these ladies' hats are poems." Scribbler "No, they are not, or people wouldn't buy them." Grocer "Did' you got the best of that customer I heard you arguing with ?"

The Academy was downed by the Mid - dletown eleven Saturday. They played a plucky up - hill game, but were outweighed. Hamilton punted well for the orange and blue, and Brinser's backing was effective. W. B. Bergner, of the Academy, was linesman. - , Saturday's scores were: Pennsylvania (scrub) 14, BridgeionO; Michigan 12, Cornell 4; Millersville Normal School 6, Franklin and Marshall 0; Brown 20, Dart - month 4; Columbia Athletic club 18, Carlisle Indians 0; Swarthmore 36, Haver - ford 0; Lehigh 11, Lafayette 8.

Brewer, wrenched ankle; Butterworth, gouged eye and twisted ankle; Murphv, injured head; Jerrems, hurt shoulder. There were also three - minute seances to doctor Adea and McCrea. This is a rather appalling list of injuries, but it is to be feared that college foot ball is hurt worse than any of the players. , r There will be a game of foot ball Thanksgiving morning on the Seventeenth street grounds between the Steelton High School and the Allison A. A. The game will be called at 10 o'clock and will be free. The Allison A.

The High School ran away with the Steelton Juniors on the Sixth street grounds Saturday. They scored 24 points in the first half, and eased up a bit in the second, merely keeping the Juniors from scoring. Hubley took Fritchey's place at quarter, and outside of a few bad fumbles put up a good game. Bowman made a thirty - five yard run for Steelton in the last half, being prevented from scoring by Walters' tackle. Fickinger played brilliantly behind the blue and gray line.

HON. JOHN (J. WOOLEY'S ADDRESSES Rev. Mr. DeYoe's Sermon Before the Daughters of Liberty. Hon. John G. Wooley, of Chicago, the famous temperance orator, delivered three speeches in Harrisburg yesterday. In the morning at Grace Methodist church he spoke an hour on the duty of the Christian church on the temperance question and his eloquence charmed the great audience. Mr. Edwards sang a solo and the choir a special anthem. Fully fifteen hundred men gathered in the Opera House yesterday afternoon to hear Mr. Wooley speak, and a more powerful speech along this particular line was never delivered in Harrisburg. Mr. Wooley is a born omtor and his command of language is simply wonderful. He is rightly named the - modern John B.Gough. He spoke from the words found in the 119th Psalm, 9th verse. "Where withal shall a young man cleanse his way ? By taking heed thersto according to Thy Word." The thing that made the deepest impression on that great body of men as they listened spell - bound to the utterances of the speaker, was his own experience with King Alcohol, and his mighty deliverance seven years ago, from its damnable effects by the grace of God, and how, ever since, he had given his life to the great work of temperance. His speech was almost en tirely free from politics ; he seemed to Btake his all upon the Word of God, and the power of Christ to save the drunkard. At the Market Square Presbyterian church last evening another great audience heard the eloquent Prohibitionist. His theme was "The Power of the Church." He talked almost an hour. Not the least pleasing feature of the service was the special singing of the choir and the Mendelssohn Quartette consisting of Messrs. Fleming, Gross, Underwood and Bigelow. Daughters of Liberty at Church. Upwards of one hundred members of the Daughters of Liberty, an auxiliary organization of the Jr. O. U. A. M., formed a portion of the large congregation which listened to a strong sermon by Rev. Luther DeYoe last evening from the text in Exodus 15:20. Woman's first place, said Mr. DeYoe, is in the home and church. Greater good can come out of the right kind of instruction in the home and church than it is possible to accomplish by years of political haranguing and button - holing, Miriam was held up as an example of the power of woman to work good or evil. While they do not possess brighter intellects, as a rule, women distance men very often in the race for prizes for excellence in studies at many of our leading colleges, because they apply themselves with diligence to their studies instead of dividing their - time with base ball, foot ball, rowing, etc. While the reverend speaker looked for a revolution in our affairs through women's suffrage, he reaffirmed his belief that the Women's Christian Temperance Union was making a big mistake in mixing women's suffrage and prohibition. One thing a', a time was enough. Let us have women's suffrage and prohibition will come soon enough. Rev. Mr. DeYoe held up Colorado as an example of the good work accomplished by women's suf frage, and said that the assuming of graver and weightier responsibilities by the gentler sex would do more than anything else in putting a stop to idle gossiping so common and so harmful at the present day. He also thought that women, by securing this last great privilege and standing on an equality with men, physically, intellectually, and socially, could not expect many of the civili ties and courtesies now extended them by the sterner sex in their commingling witn tue wona women should embrace Christianity, which has done so much for their betterment. George Martz sang a solo, "Nearer, My God, to Thee." Miss Greenwood's Bible Readings. Miss Elizabeth W. Greenwood gave a Bible reading at the Market Square Presbyterian church yesterday afternoon. At Grace M, K church, this evening. Miss Greenwood will give a Bible reading. Her subject will bu "The Atmosphere of Home." Those who have heard Miss Greenwood have been both delighted and edified. Her talents are of the highest order. One need to sea and hear her to realize her magnetism and power in carrying her audiences. BASE BALL BITS. Fred. Cook, a former capable third baseman of the Harrisburg team, has signed to play short stop for the Findlay (O, ) team next season. His home is at Paulding, Ohio. "Gil."

HIGH WAS COMMISSIONER Mayor Eby Sends His Nominations to Select Council. Mayor Eby could not be found by a Telegraph man this afternoon, but it is learned upon excellent authority that he will send to Select Council this afternoon the nominations of John McConkey, t present deputy revenue collector, to be Commissioner of Highways, and Howard O. Holatein, at present a patrolman and president of the Citizen fire company, to be Chief Eagineer of the fire department. Highway Commissioner Zarker and Chief Engineer Kohler are both Democrats, but they are not satisfactory to the Mayor, who has been throwing out vague hints for some time of an intention to supplaDt them with other Democrats. There was a report last week that Mayor Eby had made up his mind to appoint Jacob F. Schlayer, a Fifth ward Republican, Highway Commissioner, but one cannot always believe what he hears. The terms of the present Highway Commissioner and chief engineer expire January 1st. Nominations Confirmed. Select Council met at 4 o'clock and the Mayor's nominations were received and confirmed as follows : John McConkey, to be Highway Commissioner; Howard O. Holstein, chief engineer; Fred. W. Huston, Mt. Vernon hook and ladder company, assistant chief engineer. Al. T. Black, lieutenant of police, was confirmed as collector of unpaid city taxes for 1894. His bondsmen are George R. Fleming and T. G. Calder. Mr. Shaf er announced that Mr. Black would resign as lieutenant of police to accept the City Treasurer's appointment.

Regarding the assessment of one hundred per cent, on the stock of the Middle - town National Bank the Middletown Journal says: "To say that it is creating consternation among the stockholders but mildly describes their feelings. There is some talk of resisting the payment of this assessment until a statement of the bank s affairs is submitted to them, and a meet ing of the stockholders has been called for luesday, November 27th, at 8 o clock in the evening, to consider the matter. At present the stockholders are as much in the dark as the depositors, and what ef fects next Tuesday's meeting will have is a matter for conjecture. A statement of some kind is due them, and it should not be long delayed." Greatest In the World. It is seldom that any one man can claim tue distinction or having It universally conceded that in the whole world there is not, nor ever has been, his equal.

Down at Reading the market commis sioner has given notice that after January 1st he will enforce the law of 1791, providing a penalty of $10 for every sale of bread except, by weight. The talk of cheap weight and cheap flour has caused the crusade for cheap bread and all over the country the fight is on. The act of April, lvai, provides as iui - lows: "All loaf bread made for sale within this Commonwealth shall be sold by the pound avordupois, and every baker or other person offering the same for sale shall keep at his or her house, or at such other place at which he or she shall at any time offer or expose for sale any such bread, sufficient scales and weights, lawfully regulated, for the purpose of weighing the same; and if any baker or other person shall sell or offer for sale any loaf bread in any other" manner the contract respecting the same shall be void, and the person so onenaing against mis act snaii on conviction forfeit and pay the Bum of ten dollars for every such offense, one - half to use of the informer and the other half to the use of this Commonwealth. And it shall be the special duty of the clerk of the market in any place where such officer is appointed to discover and prosecute all persons offending "against this act." MUST NOT BE OVERHEATED. More Care Must Be Given. Steam - Heated J - rains. There has been one great difficulty in the steam heating of trains, and that is the maintenance of an even temperature throughout the entire journey. The cars are overheated in many instances, special instructions have been issued to engine - conductors and car inspectors along the Middle and Philadelphia divisions with regard to the regulation of the steam heat on Atlantic and St. Louis expresses. Enginemen must Bee to it that there is always enough live steam on hand to raise the pressure to not less than ten degrees on the train - pipe gauge. This amount is necessary to comfortably heat a train of eight coaches in ordinarily cold weather. In exception ally frigid weather tne steam pressure must go over ten degrees. The pressure must be turned on immediately upon notification from the conductor and must remain on until within ten minutes of the time that the engine is to be detached. The vacuum pump must be kept running until "the train stops, uonductors win see to it that tne regulating vaives in the forward part of the train are well throttled down, bo as to trap as nearly as possible. He must confer with the Pullman conductor as to whether the latter's cars are being heated all right and the regulation valves all properly set. At the end of a run he must miorm tne in spect ois of any failures in the heating system on his train. The inspectors at Broad street station and Pittsburg will set the three - way and four - way cocks and see that the regulation valves in the forward cars are closed within a one - half turn. At Harrisburg and Altoona, unless otherwise ordered, it will not be necessary for them to enter the cars to set any valves, but during freezing weather the steam hose at these points should be uncoupled on both Bides of the train between the two rear cars.and the pipes drained before coupling up again. This to prevent the pipes from being frozen. Death of Cyrus Weeks. The death of Cyrus Weeks, a foreman of painters at the Harrisburg shops and a veteran Pennsylvania employe, occurred at his home.

This is the week for Passenger Con ductor Reed, Brakemen Sensemen and Smith, Engineer Wright and Fireman Rcitzell. of tho Cumberland Valley, to lay off.

As the bridal party came out of the cathedral the sun broke through the clouds and shone for the first time during the day The weather had grown much colder, but the sunshine completely removed the dull ness which had pervaded everything out ot doors since daybreak. The corres pondent of tho United Press and the correspondent of three London newspapers were the only representatives of the prees who were favored with a view of the procession inside the palace prior to the march to the cathedral.
