Ind'.-.irfpolis. lnd Oct. S. President
!avid M. Parry of the National Assocla
loul Manufacturers will go to Chicago
n Tuesday to arrange for the meeting at
v. hich a federation of employers will be
rganlzed. and he Is expecting 0W or S'.O
icpresentatlves of employers' associations
to be present and take part In the meeting.
No concealment Is made of the fact that
the proposed federation of employers Is to
be organized to combat what are believed
be the evils of unionism, and the new
movement is expected to take something
iiko tne rorm oi organization wnicn ob
tains in the American Federation of La
bor. Mr. Parry said to-day that an outline of
the constitution of the new organization
has been drafted, and that it will be one
of the llrst things to go Into the hands of
a committee at soon as the meeting gets
down to business.
The constitution will proWile for the ad
mission of nil the employers' associations
of the country, and as there are now sev
eral hundred of these, it will start out with
a membership which will give It large
measure of success at once. One of the
associations which will be represented at
the meeting Is the Denver association,
which has H.009 members, and another is
at Kansas City, which has 7.C0) members.
There arc several such associations In
Inoiara and other Northwestern States,
and many have been formed In the East
and have membership in the federation.
"Tho purpose of the federation." said
Mr. Parry to-day, "Is to put the employ
ers of labor throughout the country in a
position where they can protect them
selves against the exactions of organized
labor bv being a mutual help to each
other in times of labor difficulties. The
federation will be made up of intelligent,
industrious, law-abiding manufacturers

business which they have made a success.
The federation will be organized along

DECENCY OP 11KAKT.
To an audience men as this I do not have
to say anything a to setting the caue of
decency with heart and with oul I want to
dwell however, upon the fact that we have
the rlcbt to claim from you not merely that
you shall hae hiart In your work, not merely
that you shall put your souls Into It. but that
yoa shall tle the best that your minds have
KOt to It also. In the eternal and unending
warfare for righteousness and against etll, the
friends of what Is good need to rcmrmber that
tn addlticn to being decent they must he em
dent; that rood intentions, hljrh purposes, can
not be effective and a substitute for power to
make thote purposes, these Intentions, felt In
action. We must have the purpose and the In
tention. If our powers are not guided aright It Is bt
tr that we should not have them at all. but
In addition to being guided aright we must hate
the power also: we must culminate the pouer
also. In the second quotation remember that
we are told net merely to be harmless as does.
but also to be wise as serpents
One of those characteristic humorists whom
this country has develops! and who veiled under
jocular tbrases mucn o-ep wisjom one or ine
ran remarked that it wis much easier to be a
harmless dove than a wise serpent. No, we
are not to oe excusea ii veoo not snow com
qualities It Is not vry much praise to gUe a
man to say he Is harmless
We hate a right to ask that In addition to the
fact that he does no harm to any one he shall
possess the wisdom and the strength to do good
to his neighbor; that together with innocence,
together with purity of xnotHe. shall be Joined
the wisdom and strength to make that purity
effective, that motive translated Into substan
URGES CHEERFULNESS. -
Finally. In the quotation from the Collect. w
asL that we may be mode ready both tn body
and In soul, that wc may cheerfully accomplish
these things that we are commanded to do;
ready both In body and In soul; that we shall
Dt ourselves physically and mntallr. At our

and moreover, do It cheerfully. Small is our

In the seventh hymn, which we sang. In the

has ever debited, the best Institutions that th
ablest statesmen In the world ever have reduced
to practice by law or by custom, shall be of no
avail If they are not vlitned by the spirit which
make a state great, by making K honest, lust

I do not ark you as practical belleters In

Thtre are plenty of questions about which hon

But there are certain great principles, such
those which Cromwell would have called
fnndamrntals. concerning which no man has a
rltht to hate but one opinion. Such a ques
tion Is honesty If jou have not honesty in
the aveiage private citizen or public sen ant.
then all else goes for nothing The abler a
man Is. the more dexterous, the shrewder, tho
bolder, why. the more risngerous he is If he
has not the root of right Urlng and right
thlrkinc In hiir and that in private life and
even more In public life.
Exactly as In time of war. although you need
ed In each fighting man far more than courage,
yet all else counts for nt thing If there Is not
that courapc upon which to base Jt.
We need that the average public servant shall
haie far more than honesty, yet all other
qualities go for nothing cr for worse than
nethlng unless honesty underlies them not
only the honesty that kretis Its skirts tech
nically clear, but the honesty that la such ac
cording to the spirit a well as the letter of the
law. the honesty that Is aggressive, the honesty
that not merely deplores corruption it Is easy
enough to do!ore corrur-tlon but that wars
sgclnst It and tranmUs it under foot. I ask
for thst type of honesty.
I ask tor militant honesty, for the honesty
of the kind that makes those who have It dis
contented with thetns-Ives as long s they have
failed to do everything that In them lies to
stamp out dishenesty wherever It can be found,
in hiih places or In low.
And let us not Caller ourselves, we who lire
in countries where the people role, that it is
possible ultimately fcr the people to cast upon
any but themselves the responsibilities for th
shape the Goternmeat and the social end po
litical life of the day assume,
I ask then that our people feel quickened
within them the burning Indignation against
wrong in etery ahape which shall tat effect in
condemnation, especially condemnation of that
wrong, whether found In private cr In public
life at the moment. 1 am asking only for con
demnation of wrong In Its crudest form, jsst
as I made the comparison awhile ago when X
ask that a soldier shall have courage, ask that
we have a right to demand of every man who
wears the uniform.
It Is not to much a credit to him to have

it; so when 1 ask for honesty. I ask for socas-

Monterey, Cal.. Oct. 25. While tempo

of a Salinas machinist, killed three of her
own children yesterday In Pacific Grove,
at the dictation, she said later, of a "su

eldest daughter, Louisa. 12 years old. She

son. Harold, aged C, and. securing an ax.
struck him a blow on the head. Later in
the evening she killed her 7-raonths-old
baby Maria by strangling.
The killing of her children was related
by Mrs. Iverson to Sheriff Nesbltt to-day.
She added that during the night she had
walked about the houe. lying down for a
short time on the floor.
THINKS THEY ARE ALIVE.
She said that she realized now that she
had done wrong, but was doing rltht at
the time she committed the deed. She per
sisted, however, In stating that the chll
aren were not dead.
The boy who escaped went to his home
In Salinas and reported to his father that
the eldest girl was 111 and had been lying
on the bed, but said nothing of his moth
er's attack on him.
The father telephoned to a Pacific Grove
physician, asking him to call at th house
and see the child. The doctor did so and
was met at the door by Mr. Iverson. who
said there was no one sick In the bouse
and that some mistake had been made.
Early this morning Mr. Iverson himself
drove to Pacine Grove. He knocked at
the front door, of the cottage where his
wife and family had been living, and was
told to go around to the back door. He
did so. and, entering the house, was about
to kiss his wife, when she said;
"Don't touch me. Don't put your hands
on me. Go and look at your children."
With that he opened the door of an ad
joining room, where lay the bodies of
the three children, the boy on one bed and
tho two girls on another.

will relinquish the management of Re

the choice of the Republican State Con
