CAN JUDGES LEARN?
How far old-fogy judges arc responsive to progressive public opinion
when it hits them like a pile-driver may soon be known if you will keep your
eye on the court of appeals of New York.
It was this court, you remember, which decided that New Yorkers
couldn't have a workingmens compensation law compulsory in extra dan
gerous industries, because it would take property from employer! unconsti
tutionally. Also that if they broke up sweatshops it would interfere with
the sacred right of a hunger-driven worker to commit slow suicide by con
Recently New York passed a 54-hour law. The Candy Trust, seeing the
canners working weak women and little children 16, 18, even 20 hours a day,
as told by Mary Boyle O'iieilly, couldn't bear to be discriminated against,
and so "sicked" its lawyers on for a fight, the first round of which has just
been decided. !
Justice Blackmar, in Brooklyn, has ruled that a law limiting the hours
of contract labor "does not abridge civil liberty," but "is in the interest of
the welfare of society." A just and sensible nil ing. But up it goes on ap
peal to the same judges who made those outrageous earlier decisions. Have
they learned anything since If It will be interesting to know.
Look at what our tariff investigators have run up against as to alumi
num! The only aluminum manufactory in the United States owns the
Canadian Aluminum Co. and has a perfect "gentlemen's agreement" with
all the foreign aluminum manufacturers. Moreover, the U. S. concern has
contracts with power companies binding them not to furnish power to any
other aluminum-making concern.
Standard Oil, the Harvester and some other trusts are, in degree, simi
larly fixed up. What do such world monopolies care about Uncle Sam's tariff
But is there no way in which to combat such accursed monopoly, such
complete strangulation of competitionfYes sir, there is.
Make Uncle Sam a competitor in the business.
"Let Uncle Sam do it!"
THAT ANTI-SPOILS VOTE
It would be glorious to know the full moaning in that vote of the demo
cratic house to sustain Taft in his exemption of some 35,000 postoffice em
ployes from the "political job" classification.
Does it mean the death-blow to the spoils system, delivered by the domi
nant and long-time hungry democracy? It has that api^earanee, and, if its
looks don't belie it, it is a tremendous step forward in progress. The ad
yantage would be great to every progressive measure, could we take from
consideration "the spoils." Many more people would think and vote on
essential issues and genuine patriotism would be a higher characteristic of
all political organizations.
The folks of Long Beach, Calif., have taken a crack at solution of "the
liquor problem" which is worthy a place in municipal household recipes as
a curiosity, if for no other merit.
They've decided that they shall be permitted to drink or give away
drinks in their own homes, but common carriers must not deliver the drinks
at the homes. See temperance reform in this solution 1? Well, there is such,
in degree. The home-acquired jag is Hie rarest of jags and there's much
popular prejudice against being seen on the street carrying a jug or rolling a

GIRL CALLS STRIKES
"TO REGENERATE RACE"
JOSEPHIN E CASEY.
NEW YORK, Jan. 24. —There
are now nearly 200,000 girls who
make garments for women on
strike in New York. Every day
thousnnds more are leaving therr
tables and their needles and com

As they stand there, chatter

she lias "left her piace," and in
newly-acquired English, she will
"MEESE CASEY—SHE TELL

This is the really remarkable
thing of this whole spectacular
strike in New York. So remark

wanting to know just who Jose

lies and how she uses it.

question, and many of them have
gone away half converted—near

in aiding their own employes
who are striking against them:
With Josephine Casey, you see,
a strike is not just a strike. It
is more—a vast deal more. It Is
a fight for the progress of the
world —for the attainment of one
more round on the cloud-tipped
ladder of evolution, of life. And
that, no doubt, is the secret or
her power—she is fighting for
the human race and not merely
for a little incidental increase for
the workers of a certain craft.
"A strike, rightly viewed,"
says Josephine Casey, "Is
