Marlborough-BIenhctm, today cheerlngly
Adopted a new business creed promul
gated by W. D. Taylor, of Clovetand,
president of the latter association.
"What we need to do now to take the
fullest possible advantage of n condition
without precedent In world affairs Is to
educnto American people to buy goods
boarlng the 'made In America' label.
When wo have done that we need have
no fears for the future.
"South American trade Is Important and
we need It, but not half so much ns wo
need the trade of our own country for
American enterprises. Neil In relative
Importance U the trade of our Canadian
cousins. After that should come the
trade of Central America, for Canada

OpUmlBm pervaded the convention of
seven hardwaro manufacturers and job
bers. They laughed at every hint of
pessimism, opened their metlng by sing
ing "God Bless Our Native Land" with a
swing and stood with bowed heads whllo
the Rev. John R. Dales. of Bethlehem
Presbyterian Church. Philadelphia, pray
ed for spiritual guidance for the Presi
dent and his Cabinet "In these days of
stress and perpleltv," for the peaceful
adjustment of International problems, the
building up of Industrial prosperity, nnd
the sheathing' of the sword abroad to the
end that the fearful waste of life there
may bo speedily ended."
Mr. Taylor, speaking of the effect of the
European conflict upon American trade,
eald. It had. by suspending Imports, erect
ed a wall vastly more effective than the
most radical of protective tariffs.
"It should develop new enterprises and
, new sense of patriotism: for from this
tlmo forward "Made In America' poods
should always receive the " eference," he
said. "If this sentiment pr- vails existing
enterprises will bo running ICO per cent.
Instead of 40 or JO per cent.: giving em
ployment to our own people and the
millions who will come here from abroad
when the war Is ended there
"This distinctly Is not a time for busi
ness pessimism. We must avail ourselves
of every opportunity, at home first, then
In Canada, next in Central America, and
then In South America. Europe cannot
use our raw materials, but will take all
the finished products we can send."
He said the country owed a debt of
gratitude to President Wilson for keeping
the country out of war with Mexico.
Secretary T. James Fernley, Philadel
phia, said the views of business men laid
before President Wilson had been ac
cepted In revising the anti-trust and trade
commission bills, which promise to ba
beneficial to legitimate business.

The "other side of the story" about the
"Steel Trust" was taken up today by
John G. Johnson. It was a final plea that
tho United States Steel Corporation
should not be dissolved,
racing the four Judges In the United
States Circuit Court of Appeals, In the
Post Ofllco Building, tho dean of Penn
sylvania's corporation lawyers began his
argument in a low tone which ho steadily
raised. Several times tho veteran lawyer

More than ICO personB who were un
able to get seats stood In tho rear of
the courtroom. Among them were many
lawyers, who had come to hear tho do
fenso plea. On ono sldo of the court

the University of Pennsylvania.
Richard V. Ltndabury, of Newark, N.
J.; C. Severance, of St. Paul, Minn.:
David A. Reed, of Pittsburgh, and tho
other prominent lawyers In tho defense
of the "Steel Trust" sat In a row with
their eyes fixed on the white-haired at
torney. JOHNSON'S WIT STIRS LAUGHTER.
Tho spectators listened attentively.
Once they laughed. Mr. Johnson was
responsible for the laugh.
Resting his two elbows on tha high
table In the centre of the countroom.
Mr. Johnson, with a smile, began to
answer special Assistant Attorney General
Colton, who stated that more steel would
be sold In America If the prices were
"The steel market Is well supplied with
steel at the present time," said the at
torney. "That Is one of the reasons why
steel Isn't being bought as much as be
fore." Raising his elbows and looking at tho
Government prosecutors, Mr. Johnson con
tinued: "I suppose If steel could be crushed Into
jelly nnd then decorated with a delicious
cream sauce the demand for steel would
be greater. Just now everybody Is sup
plied with all sorts of steel products."
Opening his argument, Mr. Johnson
paid a tribute to the other corporation
lawcrs. Scanning the faces of the coun
try's highest priced corporation lawyers,
Mr. Johnson said:
"My colleagues havo so thoroughly
discussed the whole case that I am left
In tho embarrnsslng position of having
nothing left to say."
ANALYZES THE CHARGES.
Mr. Johnson, however, said a great deal.
A complete denial of the Government's
charges was made by the "Trust's" chief
attorney. Every charge on which Jacob
Dickinson, former Secretary of War.
argued was carefully analyzed. Different
chnrges were discussed at length. Many
times the lawyer turned around and
dramatically denounced tho charges with
the word "ridiculous."
"Our adversary has seen fit to attack
Judge Gary for a transaction which oc
curred 12 yearB ago" (formation of "Steel
A tribute was paid to Judge Gary by
the lawyer for Integrity and especially
for helping to prevent a panic which was
facing the country In 1507 at the time tho
Tennessee Coal and Iron Company waa
taken over by the "Steel Trust."
"COUNTRY FACES CRISIS."
"At that particular time this country
was facing a crisis." said the lawyer,
"and a panic seemed Impossible to avert.
A lighted match would have resulted In
a frightful conflagration at that particu
lar time. The transfer of that company
by such men as Judge Gary and others
was what prevented a panic and frightful
suffering " . .
Mr. Johnson stated that tho Steel Cor

quest'on of Government Investigators be

Associate Superintendent 1
Wheeler Advocates Plan
of Junior and Senior;
bourses lor Keasons of.'
Comnlp.to rnvtntnn nf U j.
tho public schools to effect an annu.l
saving of 1100.000 Is being planned by
Georgo Wheeler, assoclato superintend
Tho plans Involve tho establishment, of
Junior" and "senior" high schools and
tho reduction of tho elementary cour
from eight to six years. Boys and rirll
would attend tho lower grades for tit
years after which they would bo promot.
ed lo tho "Junior" high school. The.
would Bpend three years In tho latter
and three years In tho "senior" school
Pupils now spend 12 years in the pubiia
schools boforo completing the course, and
tho samo tlmo would bo required under
the now plan, hut tho subjects would be
taught In different grades.
Instruction in tho foreign language,
would begin nt the ngo of 12, whereat
tho nverago child now starts the study of
French and Get man at the average age.
Mr. Wheeler nnd Superintendent Brum
baugh urged tho board to revise tho court
last spring, but the plan was not ap.
proved because tho term was then almost
ended. In nil probability a single school
will bo erected where the plan will be.
applied experimentally, nnd If It provet
successful the change will becomo a gen
Tho system which Mr. Wheeler advo
cates Is now In operation In Boston,
Kansas City, Knn.: Springfield, 111.; Ro.
Chester nnd other cities.
Mr. Wheeler believes with tho new
grading congestion In the high schooli
will bo removed. Ho called attention to
the overcrowding nt tho West Philadel
phia High School, which was built less
than two years ugo nt tho cost of $1,250,.
PROBLEM OF THE BOARD.
"It Is logical to bolleve," ho said, "that
the board will face the samo problem
In the future In Germantown, Kensing
ton, South Philadelphia nnd Frankford.
Although largo high schools aro to' be
erected In thoso sections, thero Is a
strong possibility that they, too, xylll
prove Inadequate. Tho annual report of
President Edmunds of the Board of Edu
cation shows that the high school pop
ulation In this city has increased about
100 per cent. In the last ten years.
"Tho cost per pupil for building and
furniture In the elementary schools is
?270 nnd in the high schools, $370. Under
the new system the cost would be reduced
to such an extent that a difference of
$12 a year per pupil would be found In
the Interest which tho board must pay on
loans llonted to supply these facilities."
A reduction In the cost of high school
equipment would be another factor. In
the economy, he said. Since tho "Junior"
nnd "senior" high schools could bo hout
ed In separate buildings expensive equip
ment would not bo Installed In building!
where all tho pupils can not make use of
tho costly npparatus.
