HAS BEEN PROVEN A SUCCESS
Aim Is to Make All Hands Take a
Greater Interest in the Welfare
of the Company.
Adopting a French plan for amalga
mating the interests of the corporation
and its employes. B. F. Yoakum, chair
man of the executive committee of the
Frisco system, has declared that a
homestead will be provided for every
smploye of the system, from vice-president
down to the section hand. By this
method Mr. Yoakum hopes to establish
in "entente cordiale" among the em
ployes and a closer affiliation with the
corporate interests than on any other
road in America. One of the things
which it is expected to accomplish is
the elimination of strikes.
A careful survey of the situation in
France was made by Mr. Yoakum, and
he studied the plans which he found to
e working satisfactorily on several of
the roads in that country- So pleased
was he with what he saw that he de
cided to introduce the same plan in
this country, and the first experiments
are to be made" on the Texas line. The
details having been explained to the
men. it is declared that already a ma
jority of them have signified their in
tention of taking advantage of it.
How Plan la Carried Out.
The idea is to sell to every employe
a parcel or nve or it) acres or land
tributary to the railroad, supplied with
water, and at a fair valuation, to be
paid for in 10 years, deferred payments
bearing a low rate of interest. One of
the provisions in the contract is that in
case an employe who has availed him
self of this privilege dies, or is killed in
an accident while in the service of the
company, the land is to be deeded in
fee to his wife or family, without fur
ther obligation on their part. This in
sures a home for the employe's family,
upon land, which can easily be made
It is provided, further, that should
an employe discontinue his service with
the company from any cause whatever,
before the completion of his contract,
all the money paid in by him will be re
turned, together with interest at the
rate per annum that has been charged
Siirceaxf til la Franrr.
It was found that in France, where
similar plans have been in effect for a
number of years, it has resulted bene
ficially to the company as well as to its
employes. High grade men. men who
make good citizens in any community,
were attracted to the service of the
company, and it tended to establish a
permanency in their relationship to the
company which could not be shaken
easily by labor agitation. Should the
plan prove as satisfactory in this coun
try, it will probably, in the course of
time, be extended over the entire

Gloom During arsifal.
Heinrich Conried, who expects to
come to Chicago next week to give
his personal attention to the perform
ances of grand opera at the Auditor
ium, sends a preliminary appeal, be
seeching Chicago audiences to be seat
ed before the curtain lifts on the var
ious acts of "Parsifal" next Tuesday
evening and Thursday afternoon. He
intimates that it will be difficult, if not
impossible, to show people to their
seats after the conductor has taken
his place. The house will be shroud

The large company of singers and
comedians which is to present "The
Earl and the Girl" for the first time
in this country Saturday evening at
the Garrick theatre arrived in Chi
cago yesterday and conclude nine
weeks of careful rehearsing with two
or three more private performances on
the stage of the Shnbert playhouse.
The story of the new piece, which
Is by Seymour Hicks, relates the long
search for the heir to an earldom anil
his efforts to convince those who are
seeking him. and who are his enemies,
that a wandering circus performer is
the real earl. An American heiress,
a "strong woman" in a circus, a brace
of angry American parents and a
batch of English and American law
yers assist in the complications. Iris
said that the plot isn substantial thai
"The Earl and the Girl" would, with
out its musical setting, provide ar
evening of good farcical fun.

The Ben Greet players, who will be
seen at the Illinois tomorrow after

artists, every one of whom is versed
in the plays of Shakespeare most of

bers of the company have as many as
20 Shakespearean characters In their
personal repertoire. Mr. Greefs am
bition is to produce all 36 of the poet's
works. To date he has revived IS of
them, including "Hamlet. "Merchant

It is said that when an audience
leaves a theatre in a whistling mood,
it insures the success of a musical
play. That this is so, exemplified
in the success of the musical comedy,

lovers of this style of entertainment
will have an opportunity to enjoy It at

So well pleased are people generally

The question now is if Mr. Knox
will be as successful in pacifying the

The difference between Mr. Cavan

If Knox and McConochie would just
make an arrangement so that one
could be mayor nights and the other
days, then they could both draw salary
all the time and the city would save
the expense of an election every two
years, bull tne present alternating
system has its advantages. It makes
fun for the boys.
When it comes right down to the
fine point, what possible reason can
Mr. Knox offer why people should vote
for him again for the office of mayor,
regardless of all other considerations?
He has had two whirls and failed to
make good in either. Could there be
a possible circumstance that would
justify his asking for more?
The McConoehie-Knox off-again, on
again alternating system has just
about passed the ludicrous stage. The
people are beginning to take it serious
ly, and to wonder if after all it is not
of the nature of an imposition.

The convention was called at the
Industrial home immediately following
the caucus at which the aldermanic
nominees and delegate were chosen.
Dr. Wessel was selected for major on
the second ballot. The vot was: Or
Wessel. 56; Albert Ed, 13; A. H. Koh
ier. 5; C. P. Skinner, Z; .9-ar. A.bra
ham, 1G; Frank P. Hall, 13. The sur-
prisu of the convention was the weak
showing of Mr. Skinner, who is now
serving as executive of the city, and
who has been In Arizona for several
months for the benefit of his health,
r.i.. Skinner, in view of the probability
of his locating permanently in Arizona,
discouraged the efforts of his friends
at the outset to secure his nomination
for another term, but finally they In
duced him to permit the use of his
Olnon to Ilr IVoplr'w Cnntliilnf r.
This evening the people's party
convention will. It is slated, nominate
Police Magistrate Andrew Olson by ac
clamation for mayor. The democrat!
will not have a ticket, and will support
Olson. He stands a good chance of
defeating Wessel. The latter has
served before as mayor of the city.
