ALTOONA, PA., NOVEMBER 22, 191 GOOD MORNING! -, Do you realize that some' ups" are for the city's good? EDITORIAL NOTES. "holl- It would be surprising if some foreigners did not come to violent ends in China during the existing unpleasantness. The single requisite for a public servant should be fitness; his occupation should be neither a barrier nor an advantage. .It seems that President Madero is presently to have the opportunity of displaying bis military skill again and at the same time testing the durability of his popularity, i . . Mrl Pennypackers remarkable volume strengthens the conviction that Pennsylvania made a truly unfortunate choice when it made him its gov ernor. Fortunately that error is past Our brethen in Texas are beginning to manifest some impatience over the presence among them of Mexican agitators who are too cowardly to carry on their mischievous work in their own country. Detectives who violate the laws of the state in order to accomplish their purpose should be brought before the bar of justice and given a salutary lesson. The only protection the citizen has is the law. There are men in this town who are giving the people mighty bad advice. They have been engaged for months in trying to organize class spirit. To the extent of their success will the town be injured. Unless the leaders of the Chinese rebellion can restrain their followers and prevent the murder of foreigners, foreign intervention will follow and the government of the child emperor will be sustained. To prevent acts of violence-will require almost superhuman strength. . Mayor Hover certainly was absent-minded when he attached his signature to that message vetoing the ordinance directing, the street car company to pave their tracks the same material used in the resurfacing operations. It is charitable to infer that he signed it without, reading it. Ttie socialist organ, presumably speaking for those who recently cast 1,636 votes for their mayoralty candidate, declares that it is for natural gas and cheaper light, but it does not favor an ordinance which is 95 per cent, favorable to the corporation seeking the franchise and 5 pep cent. lavoraoie 10 me people who own me streets of this city. Men who charge corrupt conduct inst their neighbors should be .cuted by tueir victims if the lat- re innocent. Honest men 1 not permit irresponsible lers or retailers of gossip to their reputation. Against the et whisperer there may be no edy;-with the public promoter of malicious tales it is different. Mr. Taft has done ten times as much as his predecessor did to curb unlawful trusts and compel them to obey the law. He was done far more by way of bringing violators of law to justice. Yet Mr. Taft is incapable of creating any enthusiasm among the people and his renomination will probably be the signal for republican defeat next year. The Russian government refuses to admit American citizens who were once subjects of the czar, declining to recognize the value of an American passport. Just now It is threatening Persia because the ruler of that country declines to dismiss his financial agent, an American who is trying to do his duty. It is a long way to Russia, but Uncle Sam, can travel It. Some folks are wondering why the United States government was not as zealous against violations of our neutrality laws a year ago as it is now. At that time, it is charged, the Ma dero people used tha United States as a base from which to precipitate .the revolution which exiled Porfirio Diaz, and nothing was done to re strain them. Perhaps this is mere assertion. The ice cream men manufacture a very delicious product, one that Is decidedly popular among all classes of the people. When this writer was a boy it was a summer product, exclusively, but now it has all seasons for its own. The Tribune observes with satisfaction that the manufacturers of this deliciouB product In Pennsylvania are all strong advocates f the sure food law. Deaths of a Day Mrs. Catherine Bysra. Mrs. Catharine Byers. an aged and respected resident of Forreston. Ogle county. Illinois, died at her late residence on Saturday the 18th instant at the age of 86 years, 1 month and 15 days.

Thomas W. Garrlty, of 1510 Sixth avenue, one of the best known shopmen of the east side, dropped dead at his home last evening at 5.30 o' clock. His death was totally unexpected and was a great shock to the family. The news of ' his demise seemed to spread over the whole eaBt side within a few hours, showing the high esteem in which the deceasd was held. Mr. Garrity had been at his work as a machinist In the Altoona ma chine shops on Monday and had come home ill. He' decided not to go to work yesterday morning and went to the office of Dr. D. F. Haagen, on East Seventeenth street, for medicine. Going home, he spent the day there and was in the kitchen with his wife at the time of his death. The clock struck 5.30 and Mrs. Garrity reminded her husband that it was time to take Jiis medicine. He arose from the chair In which he had been sitting, and reached to a shelf above his head to get (the pills. Wtbile he was reaching for the medicine, he became very ill. He was assisted by his wife to the pantry, adjoining, and talked to her while he was in tmere. He seemed to be suffering under a great strain while vomiting, and she told him to take care. After ne was through, she gave him a glass of water and foe had no sooner drunk it than be fell, sitting on the floor. When she saw the condition of her husband. Mrs. Garrity screamed for her daughter Maria, who was in the house, and the latter and her "brother James, who Just-entered at that time, went to their parents' assistance. Mr. Garrity was carried into the sitting room of the home, and Dr. Haagen was hastily summoned by 'phone. Mr. Garrlty lived but ten minutes after he fell, dying without having regain- ed consciousness. H1b death was de clared due tp heart disease. He had not been in good health for a year or more, but his illness occasioned no great alarm. The family has had Its own share of hard luck. Twenty years ago the .father lost his right arm while he was at work in tne snops, it Deing ground off near to the elbow. Seven years ago, a son, Charles, met his death on the Pennsylvania railroad on the east side of the Portage tunnel at Gallitzln. Thomas W.

VESSELS GO TO SAiiTO do:.;i;:go Cabinet Decides to Have a Naval Force There as a Protection. TWO CRUISERS TO EE SEHT Nethlojr on the Surface to Indicate Amy Srias Trouble, but Foroiracrs Afraid. , ' v Washington, November 21. ' The cabinet today decided that the situation in Santo Domingo was such, as the result of the assassination sot President Caceres. as to make it expedient for the United States to have a naval force there sufficient to meet any demands for the protection of foreign lives and property and to in sure the maintenance or order and the observance of law. No American warship was within hundreds of miles of Santo Domingo, 'but as soon ae the decision of the cabinet was communicated to Admiral Wainwrlght, chief - of operations, he sent orders by wireless to tlie commander in chief of the Atlantic fleet, directing him to dispatch the tw'o -big armored cruisers Washington and North Carolina to Hampton Roads. No one at the navy department knew the exact location of the Atlantic fleet, which was conducting a search problem somewhere off the Maryland and Virginia coasts. But precisely eleven minutes from the moment he had (sent his order, Admiral Walnwright had before him an answer from the fleet commander stating that the two big ships were on their way to the Roads, where they arrived within a few hours. (Mr. RusseTl. the American minister to Santo Domingo, who yesterday was ordered to -proceed to Guant-'ji-amo and there embark upon the gunboat "Wheeling for San Domingo, was directed by the state department to take passage on the cruiser Washington. He left Washington tonight for the Roads and will sail tomorrow on the Washington, which will be accompanied by the cruiser North Carolina. He should arrive in Santo Domingo within four days. There is nothing on the surface indicating danger of serious trouble in Santo Domingo but the decision to send this ipoweirful naval force to the island was inspired hy a desire to relieve any other nation from appre- nension as to the safety of its citizens or their -property. Incidentally. the Dominicans will be given to un derstand that the Washington gov ernment feels that ffce obligation it nae assumed under treaty to successfully administer the finances of the republic warrants it in reouirlne a strict Observance of the terms of the! Dominican constitution in the matter of the election of the president to succeed Caceres. TO RAISE SEALS IN PENNSY. Man Well Known Here Will Try Innovation at Bloomsburg. Letters received by East Siders within the last few days show that W. H. Hile, president of the Bloomsburg ostrich farm, is-going to undertake something new. He and his fellow workers have succeeded in proving that the ostrich is able to thrive outside of tropical climates, as a flock of them has shown remarkable increase in Bloomsburg, and now he is going to attempt to prove that seals can be raised In other than frigid crimes. Mr. Hile has visited Altoona a number of times and in well known here. He will leave on March 1. 1912. for Alaska, where he will get 200 seals and bring them to Pennsylvania He has secured permission from the United States government to proceed wnu me unaenaKing and Is confi dent mat it will be a success. No fear Is felt for the condition of the seals in the winter, but how they win succeed In Pennsylvania's hot summers will be a matter of scientific interest. Mr. Hile is familiar witn Alaska conditions, havinit work ed ror tne united states government mere. On his return frojn Alaska he will go to- South Africa for more ostriches. ' STEEL IN FACE SEVEN YEARS. Ross Runyeon Had Particle Removed from Cheek Yesterday. Ross Runyeon, aged 27. of 507 Wil- low avenue, yesterday had a slight operation performed at the Altoona hospital for the removal from his left cheek of a piece of steel that had been imbedded in his face for seven years. He sustained the injury when he was 20 years old. while he was working In the local shoos. The cheek was sore at the time but it was not thought that any of the steel was in it. At length the wound heal- ed up and the face assumed its normal condition. Recently the steel decided that it had remained hidden from the world long enough and the cheek started to fester around the particle. When Mr. Kunyeon went to the hosnitai yesterday the cheek was lanced and the steel was removed. He went to his Lome after the operation.

V -OR- Jacksoa and Keturah Culberson By Rey. Cyrus Jeffries Entered According to the Act of Con-grss, in the Tear 1873, -in the office oi the Librarian of Congress at Washing ton. Father and Kenton made . their appearance early in the morning, and again demanded the gold box. But I told him it was useless for them to make such a demand as I, could never inform them where It was. Fenton ' then told me that if I did not tell them where it was at once, he had the au- thorlty from father to take me away to the wilderness, apd surrender me a captive to the Indians, where I would never be heard of any more. I told them that I could not help ltl would never reveal to any person but my brother, where I had concealed the gold box. Father then ordered me to begin my Journey for the Indian country. I told him I was too weak and hungry and that my hands pained me too much to travel. They unbound my hands', but Ihey said I ould have nothing to eat Until I informed them where I had concealed the box. To this I made no reply, but submitted to my fate. They forced me along four or five miles, when being overcome with hunger and fatigue, I gave out. As there was a house near by, (hey hired a dearborn and two horses, and a boy to drive. Putting me in the dearborn, they drove all day and late at night, when the horses gave out. They then hired three horses and forced me to ride one of them. I was now suffering from hunger and begged only for a morself of bread, but. they said I should have nothing iftil 1 would let them know where I had concealed the box. Riding until I could sit no longer, I fell from the horse and was severely hurt. ". Help, ing me up, they tried to get me on horseback again, but I could go no further. As it was now getting daylight they kindled a fire, and as I began -to warm, my neck and shoulders pained me much. Waiting for an hour or two, they Bnt back the horses, and told me that I must now walk to the ; Indian country, and again ordered me to reveal to them where I had placed the gold box. I told them that I would never reveal ta them or any other person, save my brother, where I had concealed the box. Father replied that, starvation and Indian captivity would force me to terms, and that I might, just as well Inform them now where to get the box as to wait and endure the cruel Infliction that would drive me to confession at last. I told them they might force me to starvation, and punish me with a savage death, but they could' never, know from me where I had secreted the gold box. They then forced nie away as you beheld when you came up. . . At the close of my sister's narrative Mr. Hulings turned to my stepfather and Fenton and said: "Do you not, as human beings, feel ashamed of yourselves' for having acted such an inhuman and brutal part toward this helpless being?" 1 ( "We feel that it is. none of your business, and as she is my daughter and under age, I have the, right to do as" I please," replied my step-father. "You have no right to even treat the hound that grows and snarls about your door as you has treated your stepdaughter for the last two days,' said Mr. Huling. "It was her diobedience that caused her to be treated so," said Fenton. "No disobedience on earth demands such punishment as you have seen proper to inflict upon your victim, besides we'wtsh to know In what she has disobej'ed," said Mr. Huling. "That is our business and not yours." said Fenton, sneeringly. . " We propose making it our business in short meter," said Mr. Huling. as he seized Fenton and calling Kerr to his assistance, they threw him down, and taking from his pocket the same handkerchief with which he had bound Clara, they tied his hands behind his back as tightly as he had bound hers. Seeing thein ' binding Fenton my step-father began to rave and swear, and ordered them to let Fenton alone. But as soon as they had securely tied him, Mr. Huling seized my stepfather, and threw him down as though he were but a child. Then telling Kerr to take Mr. Warren's handkerchief from his neck they quickly bound his hands behind him as they had done Fentons. Both my step-father and Fenton cursed and. abused Mr. Huling, and swore they would be the death of him when they got liberty. "I will see to that, .said Mr. Hul-. Ing, who was trimming up a long hickory rod, "and I will give you a taste of your own administration," said he, as he brought , the heavy hickory down on the back and shoulders of my step-father. This caused Mr. Warren to cry for mercy. Then' turning to FViton he said: And you. you infernal scoundrel, you think I don't know who you aFe. By the blazes of Vesuvius I will make, the vagabond John Weston know the price of threatening my life as ,wen as capturing women for Indians," and he gave the would-be Fenton twenty-five horrible lashes', that made him writhe, and yell and beg for mer-ty in the most .piteous manner. He then ordered my step-father and Weston both to leave once and forever, or they would find themselves In the hands of the law for abduction, with intent to kill. Without a word of re-ply the two men left with their hands firmly bound behind them'. Having given Clara a little food from the stock we" had brought with us from Mr. GroBe's, she felt much strengthened. I then asked her if . she had the gold box safe and sbe replied: I "Yes, James, I have It safe but It has nearly cost me my life to keep it." ' - ' " - "Where did you keep it." Did they not they search your person for it? "Yes, they stripped me and searched every article of my clothes with-. out finding it." , "Have you it in your clothing?" "No, I have not.' . ' To Ba Continued. Uniform Rank Move Forwarded.
