la One of the Chief
Washington, fept. 4. The report of
Carroll 1). Wright, commissioner of la
bor, on the anthracite coal strike was
made public yesterday. Commissioner
Wright linds that there is no confi
dence between employes and their em
ployes. This he believes is one of the
, chief causes of the diilioulties be
tween the operators and miners. lie
suggests that it would be reasonable
and just for the operators to concede
at once a nine-hour day for a period
of six. months as an experiment.
Snetests Joint Committee.
lie suggests tuat mere-snouia te
organized si joint committee on con
ciliation, composed of representatives
of the operators and of u new union
of anthracite employes exclusively, to
which all grievances should be referred
for investigation, and that its decisions
should be tinal and binding upon all
parties. He also holds that there should
be no Interference with the non-union
With reference to the weighing ques
tion, lie favors two weighmasters one
employed by the operator and the oth
er by the men. He proposes a scheme
which did not originate with him
that a, fixed percentage be deducted
for Impurities. He "says, however,
that the question is full of difficulties.

NEW STORE IS A BEAUTY
The store of (Justafson & Hayes,
the new- clothing firm, was thrown
open to the public yesterday, and the
great number of people who visited
the bright, new business plaee dur
ing the afternoon and evening evi
denced the faet that they appreciate
the enterprise shown by the firm, and
are willing to lend their patronage
to make it a winner in every respect.
The store, located at 1714 Second
avenue, has been remodeled and en
tirely refitted, light being one of the
main features sought for. The stock,
consisting of a complete Line of men's
and boys clothing and furnishing
goods, has been selected with that
care which a person can only exer
cise after long experience and a most
intimate knowledge of the demands
of the trade.
John A. Cnstafson is the senior
member of the firm, and thoroughly
understands the clothing business,
having been connected with the Lon
don Clothing company for the. last 12
yei'.rs. where he made many friends.
1. V.. Hayes, the junior member of the
firm, is well known in this county,
and is by no means inexperienced in
the clothing trade, as he has been
identified with the firm of Simon fc
Mosenfelder for the past 12 years.
