in the future, take the scale of the
Managers' Association (which meant
a reduction both in wages and men),
or get off of the job, and the Press
men's Union being composed of men
of principle, decided that there was
nothing left for them to do but to
leave the Hearst presses and allow
his managers to install scabs of the
, same principle as those he put in the
Homestake Mines.
Hearst' has always advocated arbi
tration, and yards upon yards of edi
torials have been published in his yel
low sheets condemning those who re
fused to arbitrate their differences,
but when his attention was called to
the arbitration clause in the News
paper Web Pressmen's contract he
absolutely refused to arbitrate the
difference and called in his (the city)
police and forced the men from the
pressrooms. What has been the re
sult? The blood of honest union
men has been spilled by gunmen and
hired newspaper sluggers on the
streets, and Chicago disgraced again.
Mr. Hearst is trying to do what the
Great President Lincoln said could
not be done, viz.: "Fool all the peo
ple all of the time."
Organized labor is getting their
eyes open. The Chicago Federation
of Labor is on xecord against this
political tumbler. His recent attitude
toward labor has exposed this real
man of deception, and his former as
sumed friendliness towards working
men, vanishes, and leaves him stand
ing there a ghastly skeleton of what
was once supposed to be a patriotic
American, and a friend of labor. Ye
Gods!
the latest way to dispose
of; jhe family ashes
Denver, Sept. 3. You are familiar
with the story of the woman who
spread the ashes of her first husband
over the doorsteps so her second hus
band wouldn't fall on a slippery day.
That is a useful thing to do with
human ashes, but Myron Root, artist,
advocatesjthe artistic use of .them.
They can be used on a base of plas
tic cement to make pictures. Root
has just completed a "human ash"
picture p6rtraying a young woman
waking from the death sleep. He
advises persons having relatives
whose ashes are encumbering the
place to go in for portraits of this
kind. $
And they are so much better than
cigar ashes. Also it's a splendid way
to get rid of the family ashes.

PROBING OF TRAIN WRECK WILL
PROBABLY BE TOUGH JOB
New Haven, Conn., Sept. 3.
Though Interstate Commerce Com
missioner McChord had promised to
make investigation into the wreck on
the New Haven Railroad which,
claimed 21 Jives and injured more
than forty persons, most of the traces
of the disaster have been removed.
The partially demolished wooden
Pullman, Chisholm, has been .righted
and pushed back into the New Haven
yards. The torch was applied to the
ruins of the cars Kasota and Chan
cellor, in which most of the victims
lost their lives.
Coroner Mix is scheduled to open
the inquest into the wreck today.
The coroners in this section are ex
perienced in dealing with such de
tails. A great deal of their time has
been given to investigating New
Haven wrecks. The verdict of Cor
oner Phelan following the Stamford'
disaster exonerated everybody.
Two of the crew of the White
Mountain express have venturedthe
opinion that if the Bar Harbor train
had been made up of steel cars, few
if any, lives would have been lost. It
was the engine tearing and ripping
through the wooden cars that caused
so many deaths. . t
A wooden sleeping car costs $18,-
