EMBARGO ON WOOL
MEANS HARD BLOW

Manufacturers in Dilemma
Over Order Following
Live Stock Plague Seek
Way to End Plight.
The Federal 'quarantine on wool ns a
result of the epldcrlc of foot nnd mouth
disease Is affecting tho woolen Industry
of Philadelphia to such mi extent that
a meeting of tho Executive Committee
of tho Philadelphia Wool nnd Textile
Association will be held todny to take
measures to relievo tho situation.
Philadelphia, the second largest wool
manufacturing centre In tho country, Is
Isolated from lis markets through the
embargo The output of the city's woolen
mills, repicscntlng many millions of dol
lar's nnutlally, Is tied up, the railroad-)
having refused to receive shipments of
woolen goods consigned from tho city,
nnd In many cases tho Federal cmbnrgo
has prohibited shipments of wool and
wasto Into tho city.
Tho situation Is confusing to the woolen
manufacturers, who maintain that tho
cmbnrgo Is not clearly dellucd. Tho meet
ing today Alll be held In tho offices of
Charles J. Webb & Co., US Chestnut
street. Manufacturers will discuss tho
cxait meaning of the embargo and n com
mittee will be appointed to determine
which sictlons of the embargo art! unrea
sonable, in Its opinion.

"Wo do not know whero we stand,"
said A. C. BIgelow, of Swift & Co , pres
ident of the association. "The embargo
lias proved ory cmbnrrasslng to tho
city's manufacturers. Many orders have
been held up nnd It Is Impossible to tell
exactly where shipments will be paused
by tho Inspectors."
W. H. Folwell, of Folwell Brothers &
Co , said his company had received no
hhlpments from the West recently, but
that combed wool, or "tops," had been
received from New England without
"The finished products In the wool ln
dustiy cannot communicate tho foot and
mouth dlbcnse," said Mr. Folwell. "After
they are boiled, dyed and tho various
processes aro completed there Is little
likelihood of a germ living In tho prod
uct." The embargo of ten months placed by
-tlie Canadian Government on Pennsyl
vania wool will affect Philadelphia's out
put markedly If tho finished product Is
included in the quarantine. Discussing
tho Canadlnn embargo, a member of tho
Wool and Textile Association jsald that
Canada is "cutting Its own throat," ns
that Government cannot continue Its
woolen business successfully without tho
American wool supply.

"Jeff" Davis, King of Hoboes nnd presi
dent of the International Itinerant Work
ers' Union, Hoboes of America, an or
ganization which has 46 "tanks" In Amer
ica and which has administered tho hobo
oath to more than 400,OM "ginks," ad
dressed the convention of tho American
Tederatlon of Lnbor yesterday.
"Jeff" Is In every sense of the word a
"king," only he Is a democratic king. If
no one will speak to tho contrary and say
that "there ain't no such nnlmnl." The
reason why they cnll him "King of Ho
boes" Is because "Jeff" has got them all
"beat" In size of the particular portion
of mother earth over which he has "hit
the grit," "banged the stretch" and
"straddled the rattlers," which In human
language means, wnlked over the railroad
ties, traversed the roads and rodo In box
enrs. Jeff has covered the world twice
and met nearly every prominent labor
leader along tho way Ho took two tours
over Europe and Africa and mnde three
tours nround the United States, covering
a distance of more than SCO 000 miles since
he was 13 years old. He is now 2) years
"Jeff" is well known throughout the
organized labor movement in America.
Npt excluding Samuel Gompers, every
leader In the American Federation of
Labor Is proud to call himself "Jeff's
friend. That Is entirely due to the fact,
"Jeff" says, because part of the hoboes'
oath Is nevei to "scab" or serve as a
strike-breaker against organized labor.
"Jeff" assured the convention today that
the hoboes keep their oath.
HOBO AND TnAMP DIFFER.
"The only difference between a home
guard and a hobo," said Mr. Jeff. "Is that
one knows what It is to flop out under
trees and live on 'coffee an' and the other
soon finds out. Conditions today have
been Improved much to the credit of tho
hobo. For he Is an Independent gink. He

Hero Jeff was asked to explain tho
subtle distinction between a "tramp" and
a "hobo." Jeff replied:
"A tramp Is a mutt who believes tho
world owes him a living Instead of nn
opportunity nnd beats It around at tho
expense of society. Ho soon stumbles on
the rond of life and becomes what Is
known ns a bum. A hobo's philosophy Is
that tho world owes him nn opportunity
Instead of a living. A hobo Is more
philosophic Ho beliovos In society. A
trnmp does not consider himself a part
of society, despises society and would do
nnv thing ngalrtst"bociety.
"Many folks refer to tho hobo ns a
bum, especially wel-known writers. That
Is why the hoboes orgnnlze In order to
foice recognition of their real position In
society. A bum Is a poor bloko w lint's
on the ash dump of society. Ho couldn't
work If ho wanted to. He Is either a
victim of drink, dope, disease or has been
a trnmp or a criminal in his young days.

"There is no hope for the bum. There
are In the United States of America about
B00.000 bums. Thcro aro 700,000 tramps. Of
hoboB there are 2,000,000. They are casual,
migratory, off-and-on workers. This Is
why thcro was a split In the hobos' or
ganization four years ago at New Orleans.
The millionaire hobo, J. Eads How, was

prefer to choose their company. During

Friday afternoon which was the basis of
tho critical reviews, wni not nt Us best.
As If to corroborate thn judgment she
sang last night nt the Academy of Music
In a recital of her own Sho sang In such
a manner, with such easy and beautiful
perfection, that tho memory of her previ
ous singing faded forever. In some 25
songs sho never once faltered, never once
descended from tho pure nnd high level
of complete artistic expression It wni a
It is to bo hoped that Mme Gluck will
never return to opera On the concert
tngc evcr vlrtre of her voice appears,
without the meretricious trappings of
strained colnrntuia, or of bahlle drama
which opera mlpfit demand of her. Even
her loner tones nip not drnmntlc, sho Is
purely emotlonnl In her expression For

pearance, n cortnlu graceful dignity of
expressive gesture, nnd a heaven-sent
voice And It Is onlj to bo hopntl thnt she
will come again nnd again to Philadelphia
this winter, nnd npct spiing, nnd as loug

The pndowment which Mme. Gluck hns

In tho whole course of the evening her
phrasing was never nt fault, her cadences
were flexible, cnsllv sustained, her
"blessed legato," which great singers nc
qulro nt tho nge of -10 or SO, had a loveli
ness which moved her hearers to tho
perilous brink of tears. Schumann's "Dor
Nussbaum" wns perfectly sung and tho
accompaniment, as tluoughout the eve
ning, wns sensitive done The songs
In tho third part of tho program wore
perhaps tho richest In emotion They
wore Russian nnd Bohemian folk songs,
sung with nn instinct for the folic, which
becomes moro and more rare ns singers
develop In nrt and leave tho people be
hind. The folk songs of Little Russia,
composed by Efrcm Zlmballst, the sing
er's husband, wns a double triumph. The
melodious first song, followed by a char
acteristic dnncc motif, showed Mr. Zlm
'onllst ns a composer In even a happier
light than his own orfcilngs of like ma
terial last week. The Ilnal group of
songs was by American composers nnd
Included Homer's "Way Down South"
and Cadmnn's "From the Land of the
Sky-Bluo Water." Repeated calls for
encores were graciously granted, but
when Mme Gluok sang tho "Chant

too line to ask for more.
MR. BISPHAM'S RECITAL.
David Blspham's genial personality, his
cheerful interest In a wide variety of
subjects nnd his excellent dramatic senso
were tho chief features of tho recital
which ho gave Inst night at AVitherspoon
Hall. Mr. Blspham no longer depends
upon his voice, but when his voice Is
demanded he can use it with force nnd
vigor and precision. Thnt ho proved last
night In his rendition of the "Song of
tho Stonebreakcr," to which Richard
Strauss has written tho music. Nothing
moro dramatic, more bitter and Intense
Is known In modern song, nnd Mr. Bls
pham gave It nil Its qualities. On tho
other hand, his singing of Mozart's "Non
plu nndral" arln from the "Marriage of
Figaro" wns not so well done, because
tho merrlncss and truculcnco of the song
demanded a very powerful voice, which
Mr Blspham could not give to It.
