Clearfield Progress (Newspaper) - June 10, 1914, Clearfield, Pennsylvania i THE CLEARFIELD Volume VIII Clearfield, Pennsylvania, Wednesday, June PINCHOT SCORES PENROSE AGENT Washington Candidate Speaks Plainly to Congressman CROWD HISSES SLEEK BENNY .Pinchot Alto Advices That Vote for Martin Brumbaugh Is a Vote for Teacher Afraid to Declare Where He Stands on li.iuee. After a triumphant trip through Union county yesterday, Gilford Pin- theProjrressive candidate for the United States senate on the Wash- ington party ticket, addressed a -rowing meeting in the court house at Lewisburg Monday night, and took opportunity to deliver a personal -message to Ben Focht, the stand-pat Penrose lieutenant. Focht, who was defeated for con- gress two years ago, is running again for a vindication, and slipped into the Pinchot meeting for the apparent pur pose of learning which way the wind blowing. He got his bearings in a most unexpected manner. Focht Roundly Hissed. "I see former Congressman Focht behind those men in the ex- claimed Mr. Pinchot during his ad- dress. "I want to serve notice on him and all the standpatters like him now that when the bik rats likeMr.Penrose go all the little rats will go, too." Focht jumped to his feet, but was hisses that he buried from the court greeted with such an outburst of "house in confusion. "The voters of this state have much to lose and nothing to gain by voting for Senator Penrose? Mr .Pin- chot continued. "Ask yourselves what Senator Penrose has done for you, We all know what he has done for the Standard Oil company. Remember Brumbaugh. "And when you vote against Sena- tor Penrose you don't want to forget his candidate for governor. Doctor Brumbaugh is one of those over- cunning men like the'trust me'candi- who were defeated two years ago when they refused to come out in the open and tell the voters what they stood for. Before he was nominat- ed Doctor Brumbaugh also refused to tell what he stood for, but don't for- get that a vote for Doctor Brumbaugh is a vote for the Penrose machine." More than 800 persons attended the meeting which crowded the court- house and over which Burgess Ralph Koser, elected on the Washington par ty ticket last fall, presided. The Buck- Bell students' band serenaded Mr. Pin chot and escorted him frorr the hotel to the hall. The other speaker of the evening was C. L. Johnson, Washing- ton party candidate for congress from the Seventeenth district against' Ben Focht. RECORD WHEAT CROP Nine Hundred Milion Bushels is the Prospective Yield.

The HuertVi government has learned through the American delegates that the Wilsou administration will be content to have set up in Mexico a stable government to succeed Hueita rule. To Halt Cargo of Arms. Washington, June 10 The United States government definitely decided to irevent the steamship Antilla from andiug arms and ammunition at Tarn pico for the Constitutionalists. Early in the day Uear Admiral Majo. at Tampico, received orders from the navy department to be on the lookout lor the Antilla and to prevent by force ,f necessarj the lauding of her cargo Dictator and Cabinet May Continue Peace Negotiations From Vera Crua. Wants to Be Under Protecting Hand of American Troops When He Ab- Reply Ready. Vera Cruz, June Huerta, his minister of war, Gentnal Blanquet and the remnants of his cabinet are considering the advisability of coming to Vera Cruz to complete mediation lie gotiatkm.s. Information from a source as to make it authentic is that the plan now under consideration is for Blunquet first to come here, in company with the Brazilian minister, for a conference with Geneial Funston regarding the nature of Huertn's reception and whether he would be welcomed within the American lines. It was known that the Brazilian min- ister in the City of Mexico either has been or will be requested by the dicta- tor to sound Washington regarding his entrance of the American lines. From a Mexican who has been in touch with the highest officials in the City of Mexi dall and others and in this respect the evidence approaches the border very closely. Wont Feature of The wont feature of both cases is the general condition prevail- ing at Grampian, according to the tes- timony. There is evidence that drank en men obstruct the street; that Ala- orderly conduct and vulgar offend the women of the town and passers by on the street; that drunk- en persons are seen comng out of the hotels, and that the use of UqafT ta- 'LET maintained with evident hy somebody, of the law. The that this en- tirely due to liquor obtained by per- sons who cannot buy at the and that for this they are not respon- sible. This excuse is becominC worn threadbare. Any reasonable effort OB the part of licensees in any town to prevent liquor from reaching the pro- hibited class would practically- stop such sales. Whenever it is not shown that such an effort is being actively and honestly made, licensees must ex- pect to be held responsible for condi- tions. No matter what may be the need of Grampian for license that necessity cannot override the interest of public order, and unless the condition com- plained of absolutely stops in Gram- pian and the annoyance of the quiet public ended, this town will go with- out license.
