From the standpoint of the govern

council to continue the strike, many of
.the strikers broke away, Including
; about one-third of the employes of the

of the leaders all now depends on tho
situation at Moscow.
A telephone message just received by
the Associated Press from Moscow says
that the fighting in the streets con

NEW ELECTORAL LAW
Suffrage. Made Almost Universal in
Dy Associated Press.
ST. PETERSBURG, Dec. 26, 2:40
p. m.— The new electoral law was ga
zetted today, and was accompanied by
a statement explaining that. In view
of the fact that even some of the
western countries do not possess uni
versal suffrage, the cabinet could not
assume the responsibility of decreeing
it. The ultimate decision must be
made by the national assembly Itself.
The -election list will be published
forthwith, the date of the elections
will then be announced and as soon as
the government receives notification
that half the members are elected the
national assembly will be convoked.
The extension of the suffrage pro*
claimed today applies especially to the
cities, where It Is made almost uni
versal. Besides the workmen In the
factories and mills, who are especially
provided for, the suffrage will include
every owner of real estate paying
taxes, persons conducting enterprises,
like shopkeepers, paying licenses; per
sons paying n lodging tax or occupy
ing separate lodgings, and persons In
the government service, including rail
All limit of rent paid by lodging
holders as .a voting qualification Is re
moved. The Indict system of two de
grees of voters In both the cities and
country is retained.
A new feature of the law is that the
workmen, Instead of being allowed a
specified number of class representa
tives, have to take their chances in
the electoral colleges with the other
classes. Moreover, instead of the cities
having separate representatives, the
electoral colleges wlllbe composed by
provinces. Tho workmen will choose
an elector for every 10,000 men. The
result is shown in the case of the
province of St. Petersburg, where the
electoral college will contain fourteen
peasant electors, eighteen landlords,
fifteen city landlords and twenty-four

THE CORNCOB PIPE STATE
Missouri Lays Claim to Having Larg.
est Manufactory of These Goods
In the World
Svcclal to Tho Herald.
ST. LOUIS, Mo., Dec. 26.— Nearly
$3,000,000 worth of Missouri corncob
pipes were smoked last year. At an
average price of ten pipes for a dollar,
three million Missouri pipes have shed
their sweetness on the air.
The statistician fails to follow this
distribution to tell where they went
and who have smoked and are now
smoking them, but one violates no con
fidence in saying that Champ Clark
has been the largest single consumer.
If records were available it might be
easy to prove that he has constituted
the home market which, with a well
adjusted tariff levied Bgalnst the Ger
man meerschaum, the Turkish narghile,
the English briar root and other foreign
foes, .has built up from an infant in
dustry to a giant enterprise the corn
cob pipe manufacture of Missouri.
Champ Clark has furnished the home
market. The tariff has done the rest.
The greatest corncob pipe factory in
the world is in the district of Champ
Clark, and it Elopes to the Missouri on
Its western bank. Local pride, as well
as national patriotism, has kept the
corncob pipe in his mouth most of the
time. When ho removes It it is only
to cry out against some other tariff
than that which stands between the
corncob pipe of Missouri and an alien
Invader. The corncob pipe tariff is a
sacred thing to Champ Clark.
Senator Cockrell bore for years the
undeserved reputation of smoking only
a corncob pipe, but the Initiated, who
had watched the effects of such smoke
upon Champ Clark knew, when the
senator never had a pipe dream, that
he had been misrepresented or had
misrepresented himself. No man can
smoke the Missouri corncob pipe as
long and as sedulously as has Champ
Clark and not have pipe dreams.
Champ Clark has released so much
more than ever found freedom through
the lips of Senator Cockrell that his
pre-eminence us the Missourlan whose
corncob pipe smoke his clouded the
land is not to be disputed.

"Wo cannot secure a conviction in

alone," said Mr. Wright. "We must
show that the Bmnple Is lacking Ju the

to show that water was put in the

Why the Friends of Agricultural

Bhould He Taught In the Public

participated In by 13. W. Hildard, pro
fessor of agriculture, Uerkeley; T. O
Crawford, county superintendent of
schools, Oakland, and L. D. Harvey of
Mr. True said in part:
"The movement for tho Introduction
in agriculture into secondary and
primary schools Is passing rapidly from
the stage of agitation to that of action
and realization. The agitation of this
subject In thla country begnn in the
days when Washington, a great furmer
as well as a great general and states
man, was the foremost man In the new
republic. Tt hn« ehheii and flowed many
times Bince then without leaving any
lasting impress on our educational sys
tem until within the last decade It has
gathered such volume and assumed
such substantial form that the per
manent accomplishment of its object
"When we inquire why this is so the
reasons are many, but they may be
grouped under two or three main heads.
In general the claims of agriculture to
a place In our public school system are
based both on the economic, social and
educational needs of agriculture and
agricultural people as related to our
present civilization, and on the peda
gogic requirements of a school system
which shall be adapted to the masses
of people In a democratic and Indus
trial state, and to the symmetrical cul
ture of the mind and body of tho hu
man child. In a word, intelligent' farm
ers and learned pedagogues approach
ing the subject from their respective
standpoints now meet on a common
platform, and, each party using the
arguments appropriate to his calling,
agree that agriculture Is a fit and use
ful subject to be taught In public
schools. Hence the friends of agricul
tural progress in this country have
good reason to believe that ere long
agriculture will be generally taught In
our schools and form a permanent part
of the public school curriculum.
"The unintelligent farmer In every
age and land hus sunk to the level of
a stolid and unprogresslve peasantry,
and in this way, in spite of the efforts
of great statesmen and philanthropists,
the general level of prosperity among
farmers has been kept very low.
"But In addition to the economic
needs of agriculture there are the social
needs of agricultural people. In obedi
ence to the general influences of our
developing civilization and the peculiar
tendencies of farming under irrigation
our western farmers are inevitably
being drawn into closer social ties and
the currents of their lives are inter
mingling with those of the communi
ties in which they live In ways which
as yet they are loth to recognize and
the general results of which they are
as a rule too Innocent or too ignorant
"Meanwhile, the other forces of so
ciety are more and more banding them
selves together to control the ballot
box, legislation, social Institutions and
the general conduct of affairs. Unless
the farmers can be educated that as a
mass they will have the co-operative
spirit, have some real and vital under
standing of community of interest, and
know how to mingle to their own ad
vantage with men of other vocations,
their lives will forever run in a narrow
and monotonous channel and the con
trol of even their own affairs will
largely pass Into the hands of other
