WHAT UAI'ITAIj JUJUUIVES,
Dealing directly with tho Colorado Tuet

that It returned very llttlo on the capital
The suggestion that capital receives 00
Kr cent, and labor only 10 per cent, of

f sound, but Is a fallacy," ho said.

that for every dollar earned 33 cents was
pild out for labor and nlno and n frac

"And that hold gool In many other In

"And If you will see the problem as you

TO PREVENT FUSION
Washington and Demo
cratic Leaders Denounce It
as Political Trick.
Forceful statements In opposition to tho
plan of the Organization leaders to crlp
plo tho power of Independent voters hold
ing tho balance of power by malting
fusion tmposslblo wero mado today by
representatives of thrco distinct parties.
George Wcntworth Carr, Independent Re
publican; State Representative T. Henry
Walnut, Washington party, and Robert
5. Bright, Reorganization Democratic
leader, united In denouncing the plan to
A bill la to be Introduced In tho near
futuro to end fusion absolutely. To do
this it will bo necesnary to change the
election and primary laws, but organiza
tion leaders are said deliberately to have
planned that step to prevent fusion In
the mayoralty campaign In this city next
fait nnd also to ennblo them to keep con
trol of tho Gubernatorial situation. Un
der the tcrmB of the bill to bo Introduced
no candidate for nny odlco could hold
more than ono nomination.
Mr. Bright said.
"This Is merely nnothor attempt of the
politicians to tie the hands of the people.
Politicians nnd election lnws passed by
them now t'nwnrt tho peoplo at every
move they make for free expression of
their will. As tho people Bet on to ono
sot of election laws passed by tho poli
ticians, tho politicians sot up nnother set,
nnd as tho politicians work at the game
every day nnd the peoplo only now and
then, tho politicians havo been beating
the people out. It reminds me of a con
teat thut has been going on between tho
projectile nnd armor plate makers; pro
jectiles have increased In force as armor
plate has been Increased In resistance.
As t'ne peoplo show more and more In
terest In politics the politicians have to
resort to more ncute and rawer methods
of resisting them.
"In the last fusion campaign in Phila
delphia the Republican machine won by
only about 23,000 votes.
"This was uncomfortably close for the
politicians, hence the bills now appear
ing at Hnrrlsburg In that campntgn 80.000
citizens would not register and 43.00H
would not voto after they did register
Thoso 123,000 citizens would havo elected
the entire ticket, as Mr. Rotan had the
winning ticket nnd he only got about
112,000 votes Thus these bills show that
the politicians never know when those
123,000 citizens are going to wnko up."
Mr. Carr, who was the defented candi
date for District Attorney on the fusion
ticket In 1813, said:
"Senators McNlchol and Vare cannot be
acting In good faith when they would
prevent fusion, for they themselves have
often been candidates on the KeyBtone
and Pcnn tickets, besides running as Re
publicans. This Is not n question of pub
lic policies; It Is a selfish object they
would attain. Tho Republican party In
Pennsylvania has not shown a progres
siva tendency. It has always tried to
change the election laws for Its own ad
vantage." "This Is purely a political move. At
ocry session of the Legislature the Or
ganization rearranges the election laws
In order to overcome any advantage that
may havo been gained by tho other par
ties at the previous election The Or
ganization plajB the game with loaded
dice. That Is what this move looks liko
Mr. Walnut said:
"1 have reason to believe that this
measure will prove to be unconstitutional
The men who control the machinery of
tho Republican party are seeking to
tie up all who are In the party. At tho
last session of the Legislature Senators
McNIchol and J. K, P. Hall tried to
amend the primary law so that fusion
would be prevented. This amendment
was rejected, however, by the House, I
see In this attempt on the part of the
Organization to tie up the next mayoralty
election In their own favor In some
States It has been held that a restriction
of fusion was constitutional on the ground
that the Legislature which empowers the
printing ot ballots had the right to say
on how many ballots any one man might
"Hon ever, I think that a bill such as
this proposed might be well contested on

HUNTS JOBS FOR THE IDLE
Depftrtmeiit of Labor Opens Branches
WASHINGTON, Jnn. 27, For the first
time In history, Uncle Sam today was
operating n real national employment
bureau. In the larger cities, where Job
less men want work or menloss Jobs
want workers, the Department of Labor
this forenoon opened branches to con

Aiding this department wero the De
portments of Agriculture and the Post

antee to satisfy all comers. He will
make careful selection and discard the
wrecks of humanity. Ho does propose,
however, to give real aid to the deserv

quent reports show, tho Government ex
pects to be of vast sorvlce to both em
ployer and employe.
Later the bureau will be used to aid In
the back-to-tho-land movement, and In
assisting police departments In making
a census of the idle.
TEN SHARKS CHARGE BOAT

sharks charged a small boat In which
John D. Crlmmlns and two Negroes were

a shark and his helpers were trying to
kill tho big fish with gaffs. It was about
10 feet long.
The gaffs drew blood, of course, and
tho other sharks, which had been seen
following at about 30 yards distance,
rushed at the boat.
The Negroos grabbed their rifles nnd
at short range pumped No. 32 shells Into

In the two minutes the scrimmage laBted.

Not So Difficult for Those
Participants In the contest of the Even
ing Ledger and Public Ledoeh working
to get Into the list of 60 men and women
who will bo Bent on the free trip to tho
Panama-Pacific and San Diego Exposi
tions are finding that it often pays to
return to prospective subscribers who do
not nlvo their subscriptions wncn first
They are also finding It much easier
to get a subscription from a man or
woman who' Is not hurried nnd who has
time to listen while the contestant points
out the unusually good features of the
two newspapers. Accordingly, many of
tho contestants, when they Islt a homo
and find tho householder busy, make an
appointment for some other time.
This plan, t'ney report. Is working ad
mirably. It Is onto" necessary to uso a
little tact -and even the most difficult
pcrspns to canvass may become sub
scribers. Some contestants have found
persons who were not Interested In the
reward of a freo trip to the coast to be
paid to the winning contestants, but who
were willing to listen to the rccitnl of
reasons why the Evenino LEDOEn and
Public Lfdcieii should be In any home
where It Js desired to keep posted on tho

It Is a good Idea not to bear too strong
ly on the contest question with this type
of subscribers Of course, most persons
are Interested in such an unusual proposi
tion, but fiiat really Is no concern of the
subscribers, and unless you think they
wilt bo Interested It Is often unnecessary
to say anything about the freo trip to the

amount of money and nmwered Kelsler's
description was seen flvo days ago at
Miller's loan orflce on North Market
Tho loan offlco Is located In the midst
of the foreign quarter, nnd It Is believed
the miming secretary, who Is accused of
having robbed the poor of South Phila
delphia, thoso who worked In tho sweat
shops, has sought refuge among friends
In Wilmington. At the present time the
local police have not manifested any In
terest In the case, duo to the fact that
their aid has not been requested by the
Herman Miller, one of the owners of
tha loan office, snld nbout five days ago
n middle-aged man of medium height and
build entered the olllco and asked to ba
directed to n lodging house for tho night
In the Jewish section of the city. He
dlsplnyed large sums ot money and said
he had come from Philadelphia. When
asked his name, said Miller, the man hesi
tated a moment nnd nnswered Jncob
Had he substituted a "K" for tho "M"
It would have been Kelsler.
Miller said he sent the mnn to a board
ing house on 2d street. The followlntr
day tho landlady nppcared at tho loan of
flco nnd snld the man did not caro to re
main. That Is the last seen of him In Wil
mington It Is said the man ware two
coats, the outer ono being rather shabby,
but nn undercoat is said to have looked
new. Ho had several daa' growth of
Chief of Police George Dlack said that
unless ho la asked to make a search of
this city by tho Philadelphia police he
will not take a hand In tho capturo of
Kelsler. Ho said there were numerous
places In this city where a man might
easily hide and escape capture.
In the foreign quarter of the city all
knowledge of the case was denied. It Is
possible, however, that Kelsler might
easily hide there while his friends In
Philadelphia are effecting a compromise
among his many creditors. This, It is
believed, la being attempted. It Is hardly
thought probable that Kelsler, even
though well supplied with money, would
expose himself to capture by registering
at a larpo hotel, even under an assumed
name, which would be the first source
of Investigation should the Wilmington
police decide to take a hand.
