THE EVENING MISSOURIAN
Mar.vHaas Company Wants
Workers and Building, Re
ports 1. A. Barth.
TAKE LABOR CENSUS
Twenty Women Will Can
vass and Bids Will Be
Sent Within Week.
The guaranty of 'a sufficient supply
of labor, especially of woman labor,
and the right kind of a building is
what the Marx-Haas Clothing Com
pany requires from a town before lo
cating a new factory in it, according
to I. A. Barth He and V. D. Novell,
Jr have just returned from St
Louis, where, in the interests of Co
lombia, thej had a conference with
the compan'b representative.
The Commercial Club decided at
its meeting at 10 o'clock this morn
ing to hae a ceusus of the labor now
available in Columbia taken nest
Monday and Tuesday and have all
the necessary information and the bid
for the factory in the hands of the
compan's representative within a
Want Plant ear St. Louis.
"Labor is scarce in the big cities.
The Marx-Haas company has about a
million pairs of pants made each year
outside of the city now and is still
25,000 pairs a week short of complet
ing orders Their proposition is to
establish a plant in a town near St.
Louis," said Mr. Now ell in his report
to the Commercial Club this morning.
"Can we and will we guarantee the
labor, is their first question. They
want about 15 men and 150 women,
the latter number to be increased to
400 in three months. Their next re
quirement is a building with 15,000 to
1S.000 square feet of floor area, and
12-foot ceilings on one or two floors.
They will consider freight rates third.
This will be a -question of the dis
tance to St. Louis and the time that
can be made, as they desire to make
daily shipments to the distributing
station in St. Louis.
"The workers are paid by the piece,
wages running from $S to $20 a week,
the average being $10. Within a
month the company expects to have
the plant in operation, so we have not
over two weeks to get our bid in."
Columbia and lliinnili.il Preferences.
"About sixteen other towns in Mis
souri and Illinois have submitted
bids," said Mr. Barth. "But I think
Columbia and Hannibal have the
preference. The company does not
want a bonus, according to their rep
resentative: they want labor. If we
can offer them sufficient labor and a
building perhaps with free rent for
a period of three to five years, I think
we can get it. They want it under
stood that they are not coming here
to outbid the Hamilton-Brown shoe
factor for labor."
About twenty competent women will
take a census Monday and Tuesday
of the women workers now available.
They will explain the nature of the
work in the factory, and those wom
en wanting to apply for work will be
asked to sign cards which will then
be sent to the company in St. Louis.
According to Mr Barth, the work will
be clean, in light, airy rooms, with no
basement work. A subscription wa3
made among the members of the Com
mercial Club to get money to pay the

PETROGRAD, Nov. 9. Confirmation
was obtained tonight that tho former
ministers of the provisional govern
ment, who were arrested by the
revolutionary committee, have been in
carcerated in the fortress of St. Peter
and St. Paul. Confirmation was giv
en out by the commission in command
of the fortress, who received the As
sociated Press correspondent. "The
cabinet members," he said, "were all
arrested at the Winter Palace, which
was surrendered early this morning.
They were taken to the fortress, where
they were placed in solitary confine
ment, but courteously treated."
Chief of Staff, Bagratuni, and many
of his subordinates were arrested.
Kerensky Cannot Be Found.
The commander said he did not
know the whereabouts of Premier
Kerensky, who had "run away."
It is impossible at this hour to as
certain what the casualities were in
the Winter Palace battle, although
they are reported to have been few.
The fighting proceeded with the
revolutionary forces alternately in
possession of the huge piles of wood
stored in the Plaza, a part of the
city's winter fuel supply. The glare
of an arc light illuminated the posi
tion of the forces in the Plaza, while
the rest of the city was in almost
total darkness, thus increasing the
visibility of the flashes from the guns
of the cruiser in the harbor, which
gave warning, of the deadly bursting

The palace, which already has been

At a meeting o fthe Congress of
Soldiers' and Workmen's Delegates

Kerensky, at Atchina, twenty-three

the front to Petrograd. After a con
