Wanted in Galesburg, Too. Mae
Elizabeth Peterson, the 17-year-old girl
who was recently arrested here for
obtaining money by use of a confi
dence game, it turns out was not as
innocent as she appeared to be here.
Sheriff F. H. Hooker of Galesburg,
Knox county, telephoned to the police
department here and told of a girl that
passed worthless checks in Galesburg
on the 19th and 23rd of this montl.
A description of the girl who did the
work! there and her methods were
compared, and it developed that' Miss
Peterson, who was arrested here, is
wanted in ' Galesburg for the' same
kind of work, and instead of the girl
being a wayward and innocent child,
she is a bold crook. It is not known
what the Knox county authorities may
want to do with the girl, but they may
want to prosecute her after the Rock
Island county officials are through with
her. The girl is at present in the
county jail waiting until the grand
jury meets, and then she will have her
trial. She came to Moline on the ev
ening of Dec. 23 and immediately be
gan to get the worthless checks cash
ed. She first called on Dr. C. Arnold
Peterson, and while in his office stole
six blank checks. Five of these she
filled out with fictitious names and
succeeded in passing four of them be
fore being caught up.

BIG CONTEMPT CASE.
Labor Leaders Regard
The sentence of imprisonment for
contempt iu disregarding the injunc
tion of the court ih the boycott of the
Buck's Stove and Range company irtf
posed by Judge Daniel II. E. Wright
of the supreme" court of. the District of
Columbia ou Samuel Gompers. the
president of the American Federation j
of Labcr; on Ffauk Morrison, secreta-'
ry of that body, and on John Mitchell, j
former head of the Miners' federation,
has brought out a number of opinions
by labor lenders. 'Here are a few:
, "The sentencing of Gompers, Mitch
ell and Morrison to terms of imprison
ment iu the Buck's Injunction case
will, in my opinion, be of benefit rath
er than harmful to the trades union
movetnent in America," says Joseph
E. Buchanan, a well known labor lead
er and writer on, labor questions.
"It will draw together aud solidify
the elements which have been antago-
nistic. These autagonisms have grown
out of disagreements upon questions of
policy, particularly with relation to
trade and Intertrade matters. These
disagreements have defeated the com
plete solidarity of the trades unions.
But attacks upon the men iu high offi
cial positions by forces cut
side of the movement invariably
erate the recollection of grievances on;
the inside, and all divisions of the
army of organized labor rally to the
support o those attacked.
"A recent illustration of this truth I
was furnished at the Norfolk conveu-
tion of the American Federation o?
Labor in November, 1007. Until that
convention Mr. Gompers had never :
been elected president without opposi
tion, and the Socialist element was
sometimes bitter in its fight upon him.
Because of the attacks made upon Mr. 1
Gompers by the National Association
of Manufacturers the Socialists took
the lead In a unity movement which ;
resulted In his unanimous re-election
at Norfolk. I could cite many In
stances similar to this one, all of
which convince me that the. trades un
ion movement will not suffer because
of the verdict of the supreme court." i
Charles II. Moyer of Denver, presi
dent of the Western Federation of
Miners, in speaking of the punishment
of Gompers and others said:
"The decision of the supreme court
of the District of Columbia against
Gompers,-Mitchell and Morrison fur
ther bears out what I have for a long
time preached that it. is no use for
the working class to legislate without
having the courts first reformed."
flenry Abrahams, secretary of the
Boston Central Labor union, said: "It
seems as though the judges have gone
mad. Slowly and insidiously our peo
ple have been deprived of their liber
ties. This sentence Is a blow at the
freedom of the press."
W. D. Ryan of Indianapolis, national
secretary-treasurer of the United Mine
Workers, of which John Mitchell was
president when the alleged boycott res
olution was acted on at the miners
convention a year ago, sent the follow
ing telegram to President Roosevelt:
"As an official representative of the
United Mine Workers of America I em
phatically protest against the court de
cision sending Gompers, Mitchell and
Morrison to jail. I know of no law
that has been violated by Gompers or
; In question, and I am positive that
jutcneu is absolutely innocent.
George W. Terklns of Chicago, pres
ident of the Cigarmkers' Irternation-
al union, Mr. Gompers' own organlza-
"I hold that the decision was unjust
and uncalled for and not in keeping
with the ethics of even handed justice.
The judge appeared to be spiteful and
bitter in Imposing the sentence. I
hold that Mr. Gompers and his com
panions committed no crime in the
sense In which that term Is applied
and used. Mr. Gompers believed he
had a constitutional inherent right as
a citizen to do the things which ' he
openly and in broad daylight had done."

Ing trial byjury In contempt cases.'
This decision will surely emphasize the '
need of such a law and In that respect
will serve a useful purpose."
Walter MacArthur of San Francisco,
editor of the Coast Seaman's Journal,
said: . -
"I regard that sentence as an epoch

of labor, but of civilization. No sym-'
pathy need be expressed for those im-'

While in America
New Year's day is generally observed :
as a holiday and as an occasion for
paying ceremonial social calls, in
France, even now, New Year's pres-'
ents have not entirely disappeared. j
New Year's day is not observed on
January 1 in every country, although 1
most nations, nowadays use the Gre-1
gorian calendar, and consequently be-
gin their new year on that day. In '
Russia the Julian calendar Is still in!
Use, and as a quarter of a day in each J
year is lost by that system, there Is ,
now an accumulated loss of 13 days, j
January 1 in Russia, then, corresponds
to January 14 of our calendar. The
Mohammedan New Year, the Jewish
New Year and the Chinese New Year,
owing to the peculiar systems of keep

dar. ASTO THE CALENDARS.
The Jewish year is solar-lunar, and
may consist of as few as 353 days and
as many as 385. New Year's day usu
ally falls in September. The Moham
medan years usually consist of 354
days, being purely lunar, and the leap
years, which occur In certain twelve
months of a cycle of 30 lunar years,
contain 353 days. The first day of
Muharrem New Year's day may in
course of time make a whole revolu
tion of the seasons. An instance of this
may be given. The first of Muharrem,
1906, fell on February 25, while the
Mohammedan New Year last year be
gan on March 7. Inasmuch as it is
purely lunar, the Mohammedan year
is almost unique in the calendars of
the world. While the Chinese year con-
forms to the eastern idea, being found
ed upon lunar months, a month is add
ed to every 30, to make time conform
with the solar year. Consequently,
the Chinese New Year may begin any
time between January 21 and febri
REVOLVING NEW YEAR.
The ancient Egyptians had a year
more or less conforming to the Julian
style, inasmuch as it contained 3C5
days. In course of centuries this made
New Year's make a complete revolu
tion of the seasons. This fact, only
recently properly appreciated by Prof.
Petrie, the Egyptologist, led to many
misconceptions and retarded the solu
tion of mysterious feasts and rites
which now are "perfectly well under
stood by archaeologists.
Anciently, in Rome, the new year
began in March, in the neighborhood
of the vernal equinox, which would
I seem to be a reasonable, if not logical
time to begin the annual, cycle. March
25 was, until the latter part of the
sixteenth century, the day when the
new year began in most Christian
countries. Numa is said to have made
' the Roman year begin on January 1,
the day held by pagan Rome sacred
In honor of Janus, who was thus sup
' posed to turn at once back upon the
old year and forward into the new, and

CUSTOM OF GIFTS.
Almost everywhere the custom of
, i-: . a . . .
know that the observance has the
sanction of remote antiquity. In the
eighth century B.. C. Tatius, king of
the Sabines, according to traditions.
began the custom among the Romans.
At first the gifts were merely emblem-
New Year's Greetings
' atic and of little price, being branches
cut from the wood consecrated to
Strenia, ' the goddess of strength.
These were presented to the king as
an omen of good fortune. The gifts
became more pretentious as time went
.on, and in later centuries some of the
t Roman emperors demanded New Year's
presents of groat value from the
. "magnates" of those days. As the
Roman rulers were gentlemen who
were not to be trifled with, the pres
( ents usually appeared on time after
i notice to the wealthy was, given. .
i It was in Rome, too, that the habit
! of masquerading at New Year's ap-
stn, observed in Italy now ls confined
,, --Mm,; at ho Vntnhanv
and at the carnival time.
FESTIVITIES OF THE DAY.
In some countries, notably in Great
Britain and in some cities in Canada
and the United States, the new year is
welcomed in by festivities on the eve
of the day. In Scotland, for instance,
it is customary to celebrate New
Year's eve with some festivity, which
is nrolonged until uast midnight. At
the stroke of 12 every cne present
wishes each other a "Happy New
Year." The custom is also common
in many parts of Germany, where the
salutation 13 "Prosit Neu Jehr."
Similar to this custom are the re-
ligious "watch meetings" held in some
of the churches in this country on
New Year's eve. In England on New
Year's eve, in some houses, a curious
custom, or superstition, is observed.
At the stroke of 12, which ushers in
the new year, the party, already wait
ing on the stairs, begin to ascend the
stairway backward, taking a step at
each stroke. Every step successfully
mounted means a happy month, every
stumble a reverse. Of course, it is
one of those playful superstitions
which are not taken seriously.
