the big battle. Senator Reed will ob
ject sternuously to cross-examination
of Mulhall.
If the N. A. M. is allowed its way
the committee will continue in ses
sion for months, and by the very
sensational nature of its work will
delay the real business of Congress
the passage of the tariff and cur
rency bills.
Mulhall testified in regard to the
Danbury hatters' strike of 1906,
which he says he ended by buying
labor leaders.

A WARNING TO THE GENTLE SEX
REGARDING THE SPLIT SKIRT
Girls, the split skirt is dangerous.
It may not be hard on the eyes of
men, and may facilitate walking, but
it is a mighty poor protection when
a bulldog attacks you.
Mike Romain owns, or did own,- a
bulldog. It is a perfectly moral ani
mal, but it couldn't stand the sight
of Anna McMannagan's split skirt.
Miss McMannagan visited the Ro
main home wearing one of the new
fangled garments. Romain's bulldog
grabbed her by what the skirt failed
to conceal and closed his jaws. As a
result Anna is painfully hurt, and the
dog is in the pound, awaiting death.
Judge Sullivan administered the sen
tence, in spit of an eloquent "plea by
Romain.
"It was one of those new skirts
that did it," wailed the owner of
the dog. "Anna McMannagan comes
to our house wearing one with a ven
tilator in the side. My dog ain't used
to anything like that, so he makes a
snap at Anna's well, he snapped
where there ought to haVe been some
dress goods. But there wasn't any
material "
- "Whaddye 'mean, there wasn't any
material?' interrupted the judge aft
er looking at Anna.
"There wasn't any dress material,
your honor," explained Romain. "So
the dog just naturally bit her. Ordi
narily he's gentle, just like a calf,
judge."
"Sure, I get that Tike a calf stuff,"
said the judge. "The dog will have to
be shot."
But Miss McMannagan isn't going
to wear her split skirt when there are
dogs around.

UNDERWOOD SAYS HE'S THE
ONE WHO'S RUNNING ERIE
New York, July 23. The state
ment of President Underwood of the
Erie Railroad that his road will ac
cept the award of the federal medi
ators under the Newlands act clari
fies the Eastern railroad situation.
The string attached to the Erie's
admission of defeat is that no ad
vance granted by the award shall be
come effective until January, 1915.
But this string has been lightly
hopped over by the union men, who
say that is something for the Erie to
settle with its own employes.
The only remaining difficulty to
mediation is the request of the rail
way managers that their eight de
mands on their employes be arbi
trated along with the demands of
the men for a 20 per cent raise in pay.
It is believed the railways will with
draw this demand.
Milwaukee. Frederick D. Under
wood, president of the Erie Railroad,
said today that he was running that
road and that neither Geo. W. Per
kins, J. P. Morgan & Co. nor anyone
else had a finger in it
This is Underwood's answer to the
statement of W. G. Lee, president of
the Brotherhood of Railway Train
men that Perkins brought Under
wood into the Erie in 1910, and that
the only way to deal with the Erie
now is through Morgan & Co. or the
banks.

"Norah," said the mistress, "are
these French sardines that -you have
