London. March 7. Parliament isn't
gciss to pass a minimum 'wage law
without bf-Ing compp'.lfd to surmount
a vast number of obstacles. One of
the chief of them Js the opposition of
the coal owners of the nation.
With the million and more miners
on strike, with need and actual starva
tion threatening In many homes, with
the business of the country so affected
that a state of comple'e commercial
paralysis is looked for unless the
utrtke is e:idcd. and ended quickly, po
litical leaders are a unit in declaring
the minimum wae law demanded by
ihe miners ia the only thins that will
afford immediate and' certain relief.
I. A. Thcmas, a South "Wales opera
tor wbo lias taken a prominent part
In the owners' councils, brands the
proposed law an revolutionary.
"No organization of employers," he
said, "can fight effectually againsj an
act of parliament, and If the govern
ment exercises this force we shall be
compelled to submit.
"The proposal cannot fail to be re
garded as of the most far-reaching
character. If it Is to be enforced by
"Nobody can suppose for a moment
that the policy or principle will stop
there. Withia a very short period we
shall have every other industry claim
ing to be similarly treated.
"The unrest in South AY ales is due
to a persistent and advanced social
istic propaganda, and not reallv to a
legitimate and natural demand for bet
ter ware conditions. Wages in the
South Wales cor.l field are the h:ch-
est in the eld world."
Watts Morgan, t,ne of the miners
representatives in the conferences held
thus far, thus explains the situation:
"The government has asked the
miners' representatives to Justifv the
rates they pui forward as a minimum
wage. We are quite willing to do that,
but we cannot negotiate with any
view to a possible reduction of those
"We are prepared to prove the rea
sonableness of our claims. We hold
that a certain minimum is necessary
to keep the miner and his family in
comfort, and that if he rendeis sen-Ice
legal enactment, it means that the (he is entftled to an income necessary
government Is compelling the conl I to that end. We get on dangerous
owera to sgree to a breach of the
agreement solemnly entered into by
representatives of the workmen to last
till 15. To pasa an act forcing the
South Wales coal owners to set aside
this agreement goes to the root of
ground when v.e have not only to
prove that the minimum rates are rea
sonable, but that it is possible for in
dusiry to afford them ia any given
"We have already reduced the fig
ures to the lowest point and are not
Superintendent H. B. Hayden held
a general meeting of all the teachers
of the city schools at the close of the
afternoon session yesterday to make
a report on the convention which he
attended lu St. Louis last week, the
annual meeting of the national de
partment of superintendence.
Mr. Hayden Eaid in part: "The pur
pose of the department is to bring
together the professional heads of
city and county schools, the profes
sors and instructors in university and
normal schools, for the discussion of
the larger problems of school organ
ization and administration. The ad
dresses and discussions are presented
by the greatest leaders in public
school education in the United
"The attendance was probably the
largest in the history of the depart
ment, nearly 2,000 being in attend
ance. . This number included the
United States commissioner of edu
cation and eight others from Wash
ington, D. C; state, city and county
superintendents; high and normal
school principals; heads of colleges
and universities and other education
"The program was a particularly
strong and practical one and was ar
ranged by Superintendent C. E. Chad
sey of Denver, president of the de
partment. It was his idea to per
mit nothing on the program but emi
nently practical topics and to appoint
as speakers only such men as have
had personal and successful exper
ience in connection with educational
"The central thought of the pro
gram was 'Efficiency. Some of the
speakers were Superintendent Elson
of Cleveland, Ohio; Superintendent
W. Li. Stephens of Lincoln, Neb
.veyer f-.. Mioomtield, direftor of vo
ce tional bureau, Boston: Hon. P. P.
Claxton, U. S. commissioner of edu
cation; Assistant Superintendent
Knox of the St. Louis city schools;
and Superintendent C. C. Pearse of
the Milwaukee schools."

A feeling of sadness accompanies the
discovery of the first pray hairs which
unfortunately are looked upon as heralds
of advancing age. Gray hair, however
handsome it may be, makes a person
look old. We all know the advantages
of being young. Aside from the good
impression a youthful appearance makes
on others, simply knowing that you are
"looking fit" gives one courage to
undertake and accomplish things. So
why suffer the handicap of looking old
on account of gray hairs, when a simple
remedy will give your hair youthful
