Theodore P. Shonts, president of

the New York Railways
| company, reiterated his determina
tion not to meet representatives or j
the striking carmen.
"If I did so, the loyal men in the I
Inter bo rough brotherhood would have J
| good cause to strike," he said. "Be-J
sides, there is no reason for negotia- j
tions. There is no strike. We are'
carrying more people in the subway,
on the elevated and in the Stein way
! tubes than ever before. Yesterday
we carried 2,208,257 passengers' or
387,639 more than on the same day
last year. The service on surface car
lines is 70.5 per cent, normal."
Delegates to the Central Federated j
union, representing 125,000 workers J
in allied trades, tonight voted unanimously
to ratify thet strike called for
next Wednesday by union labor leaders.
This action follov.-ed a similar
steD fc.iJcen several dayse ago by the
! representatives of 2(K),000 members of
the United Hebrew Trades.
The vote was taken after the delegates
had heard a report from the
conference of labor leaders which authorized
the call, and speeches in favor
of a general suspension of work.
| Among the trades represented ( at
I the meeting were bakers, milk wagon
drivers and several branches of the
garment industry. It was announced
* , ,MrNT. |
that the cutters m uie wumcu & umvi-,
ing trade have authorized their offi-j
cers to call them out. This will
mean, it is said, that 60,000 dressmakers
and women's tailors will be
unable to work because of the lack of i
cutters. Many women from the garment
industries were present and took
part in the speeches and in the vote.
Ernest Bohm, secretary of the Cen*
tral Federated union, one 01 uie
speakers, criticised the action of the
policr the attitude of Mayor Mitchel
and the public service commission.
"We must taice up uiie ciiUgels "with

or State, but a great national

MARVELS OF SCIENCE.
In Wondering at the New Ones Don't
Forget the Railroad.
The most recent mysteries oT science
are the ones that receive lost
attention. The air is full of talk nowadays
about the thrilling wonders of
wireless telegraph and aviation and
subterranean transportation and submarine
navigation. And very rightly.
ror tnese are marveis. out ior uiui
matter so are some of the things
which we have gradually grown so
used to that we never see them at all.
There is the railroad. Plenty of
romantic mystery is to be found La
the railroad yard of a great terminal.
It is. first of all. a network of steel ;
pathways which seems unthreadable.
Trains come and go by devious ways;
semaphore arms rise or fall in that
one rectangular gesture of theirs. The
providence that shapes the ends of all
this takes the form of men tugging at
some very prosaic looking levers in
O nt^VJul WfTV4W?
To get still another effect look at
the yard by night, when great llmiteds
come surging through the dark, when
the only guides aro pieces of multicolored
switch and signal lamps. The
cars of night freights being made up
trundle about and the yard never
sleeps. In its way It Is as full of life
as the Jungle. Every locomotive is a
dragon harnessed to man's service.
Thp marvels of science are all about
as, and the ones we have grown used
to are just as remarkable as those of
today and tomorrow.?Collier's.

WEATHER TO ORDER. ||
It May Possibly Be Brought About by
Aid of Eleetrieitv.
Is It possible to make weather to order?
In the opinion of Sir Oliver
Lodge, it is by no means beyond the jg?
powers of man. He advances tbe suggestion
tbat exploration of tbe upper
regions would result in discoveries
which would enable man to control the
wear ue r.
The latter, he contends. Is merely a
matter of electrical conditions, and thp
ingredients necessary for fine weather
are an upper atmosphere charged with
positive electricity and a negative *4
charge upon the earth's surface. Much.
he says, could be done by placing a
copper Tod round the earth parallel to
the equator and discharging millions
of amperes funitsi from this rod. Sir
Oliver points out that we have spent ^
millions on building railways, and why fl
not invest capital in controlling the
weather by this means? m
Meantime, while we are thinking
about the copper rod. much might b<
done by electricians. Sir Oliver Lodgt wk
suggests that the. should ascend a V
high mountain, erect a powerful gen
erating station and discharge all the V
positive electricity they can produce
Into flip air Rv this mpans much nt
the abnormal weather from which we
suffer at times might be avoided and V
nature be induced to provide us with
more regular seasons.?Rocky Mountain
Why Not Say "Woman?"
Whenever one has occasion to mention
the most remarkable sex of the
human species one is confronted by
the pertinacious fact that there is no
general term to describe the subject ef J
one's dissertations except the unlovely 1
and almost meaningless term "female."
That term is altogether too 1
general. It includes cows, hens and all
other beings of that gender. Some
word is needed that will express the J
female of the human species and nothing
else. She who orders the universe 1
and makes planets and suns and stars
' worth while ought to have a name of A
her own and one worthy of her. We %
call upon the nations of the world to
devote themselves for a time to this
really important task.?Chicago News. I
