IF FRIEDMAN'S CURE
IS TRUTH THIS IS
WHAT IT WILL DO
Tuberculosis kills 10.7 per cent of all the pc pie
who die in the United States. That is the official
figure given by the federal census of 1910.
Every three minutes in the United States some
one is dying of tuberculosis.
That's 480 American men, women and children
sent to eternity by tubercle bacilli every 24 hours.
Over 175,000 persons will go down into their
graves during 1913 — sent by tuberculosis—unless
Friedman's discovery saves them.
It is estimated that thorp are 70,000 tubercular invalids in Col
orado, New Mexico and Arizona, seeking life.
Out of every 100 barbers who die, 40 die of tuberculosis. Of
every cigar makers who die, 30 die of tuberculosis.
Over 53 per cent of the deaths among printers are due to tu
berculosis; only two other trades show a higher mortality from con
sumption—jewelers, gold and silver smiths —with 04 per cent, aiul
cabinet makers and wood carvers, with 5G per cent.
Farmers, farm laborers, bankers and brokers have the lowest
consumption death rate.
It has been estimated that it would take $50,000,000 spread
over ten years to reduce tho consumption death rate in New York
City to a quarter of what "• »ow is'
Last year over $14,000,000 was spent in the United States In
anti-tuberculosis work.
Americans maintain 400 anti-tuberculosis associations and com
mittees, 386 special tuberculosis hospitals and 26"> dispensaries.
Germany has spent, during the last nine years $25,000,000 In
treating Its consumptives.
Consumption costs the United States A BILLION
DOLLARS A YEAR in money spent fighting tuber
culosis, treating invalids, and losses in earning ca
pacity of invalids.

RESULT OF SUIT MAY

long series of small suits against
the Puget Sound Power -com
pany, involving right-of-way
purchased by the company, whs
filed today in superior court by
F. A. and Mary Sterblow of Ort
ing.
With the intention of .extend
ing their line from Puyallup to
Orting, the company in 1903
purchased from many farmers
small strips of land through
their properties, and agreed to
construct their line along this
right-of-way "within a reasonable
time."

OF THAT 8
HOUR LAW
The city council bumped up
against the eight hour ordinance
asked for by organized labor this
morning and then lialkeJ.
1. Labor has been trying for two
years to get the eight hour law
enforced on public work in Ta
coma. Contractors obeyed It
when they felt like it and ignored
it when convenient oftentimes.
The labor authorities finally ap
pealed to the council to pass an
ordinance in harmony with the
state law.
The ordinance came up for third
Reading this morning.
Nobody said anything. It was
ready for a vote.
' Mayor Seymour finally broke
the ice.
"I'd liko to talk this over wit'i
the city attorney," said the may
or.
The laboring men also asked
that the ordinance provide whore
a contractor worked overtime in
an emergency, he must pay time
and a half.
"That is hardly right, that
would not work on city jobs, es
pecially in laying concrete where
a job was not quite finished up
in the evening and the men might
have to work a short time over
time," said Woods.
Excuses began to multiply why
the council did not want to pass
that ordinance and finally the
whole thing, which had been on
the verge of passage, was re
ferred to the city attorney.
In the case of the Streblows it
is alleged the company has been
repaid the $100 which right-of-
Xvay through the Sterblow farm
cost in 1903, having as yet
failed to construct their lino,
pud asked for a return of the
property to the original owners.
This, the complaint says, has
been refused. The Sterblows now
ask that the strip through their
property be tendered back to
them.
Upon the outcome of this suit,
It is said, hinges many others of
like irature.

SLAVE VICTIM
MISS lIOHOTHV AKNOIiD.
From a photograph received by

(By I'nltod Press Leased Wire.)
NEW YORK, Dec. 4. —In the
course of a talk on "white slav
ery, at the Metropolitan temple,
James Lee Laldlaw, hanker, men
tioned Dorothy Arnold and stated
that he had known her from
childhood and that he knew now
that Arnolds realized that the
"worst" had happened to her.
He said that he had known the
Arnolds for many years and was
somewhat familiar with their ef
forts to find Miss Arnold. He
said he knew the Arnolds believ
ed that Dorothy Arnold had been
kidnaped, probably by white slav
ers, and ho went on to say that Tie
himself believed that when the
kidnapers discovered that their
victim was a member of a family
oT sufficient means to enforce a
continued search for her she was
murdered to prevent discovery.
John S. Keith, attorney for the
Arnold family, said today that the
kidnaping theory had been enter
tained by the family since a
month or six weeks after the dis
appearance of Dorothy, and that
nothing had developed to alter
their belief in that theory. Keith
said, also, the family believed that
white slavery was at the bottom
of this kidnaping.
