any other circuit, will admit to all ses
6ions of the six days and at each of
the sessions there will be a doubla
program, a lecture and an entertain
ment. A number of our townsmen
are assisting this enterprise In assum
Ins the obligation of the guarantee
and it is hoped all citizens will unite
In making it a success. We are as
sured of an unusually strong and well
balanced program. Here are some
of the attractions booked to appear:
Hon. Fred S. Jackson, former attor
ne. general and congressman of Kan
sas; Harold Morton Kramer, author
of several books, a soldier and reform
er; Dr. Cole and a band of Pueblo In
dians; Harry Cland and his orchestra;
Mrs. Nannie Curtis, the "Texas Cy
clone;" Denton C. Crowl of Sam Jones
fame; Nell Bunnell, singer of the songs
we know and love. These are a few

Pie company and the Borden Condens-:
ed Milk company, will be compelled to
shut women and girls out of their fac- j
tory and substitute men," declared At-,
torney F. V. Pringle to the Denvir
committee of the legislature appointed
to hear testimony on the probable ef
fect of such a law.
Girls don't want an eight-hour law.
I never heard a wage earner ask for
shorter hours," testified Jacob Strauss
of J. M. & M. Strauss, clothiers.
AI-L FIGHT HORT HOIHS.
"I demand that my women employ
es be given the personal liberty to reg
ulate their own hours of labor. They
should not be subject to the whims
and opinions of agitators and reform
ers on what concerns them alone,"
stated T. C. Withers, resident manager
of the Mount Vernon Knitting company.
Among the hundreds of employers
present, many of whom had been num
bered among the toilers themselves,
not one raised a voice for the child of
the factory or the store working 10
hours a day.
"No wonder Mr. Strauss never
heard a wage earner ask for shorter
hours," exclaimed Mrs. Raymond Rob
ins after the hearing. "They need ev
ery cent they can earn in the clothing
industry to keep themselves alive. A
woman who cannot earn enough prop
erly to feed herself, to say nothing of
clothing herself, will work 24 hours
a day to earn more money if necessary'-
She cannot afford to think of
her future health or of possible chil
dren. The state must think of those
things for her."
charge: loss of moxky.
F. W. Weims, head of a large laun
dry business in Quincy, 111., proposed
that the committee investigate the
idle hours of employed women and
leave them alone during their hours
of labor. "If the legislature would
pass laws to regulate what women do
with their idle time, rather than their
hours of employment, it would do a
great deal more to elevate moral stan
dards and make women fit for mother
hood.", he declared.
"Since the 10-hour law went into ef
fect we have lost from $50 to $75 a
week," be testified. We have 125 girls
in our laundry. The eight-hour law
would cut out over a day a week for
each worker of the entire force."
J. C. Roth, president of the Hotel
Association of Illinois, and connected
with the Congress and Great North
ern hotels, says that women work 10
hours a day for seven days a week in
"The girl in the hotel does not work
half as hard as the maid or second
girl in the private family," he stated.
"Why not regulate their hours? They
often work from 6 in the morning to
8 or later at night."
The next meeting of the committee
will be at Springfield next Tuesday.

ROOSEVELT WILL VISIT
SHIRAS WHILE AT TRIAL
Marquette, Mich., May 24. Every
thing is iu readiness lor the trial of
the libel suit brought by Theodore
Roosevelt against George A. Newett,
editor of the Iron Ore, a weekly paper
of Unpeniing. The trial begins Mon
day and Mr. Roosevelt, who is expect
ed here then, will be the guest of Paul
Shiras, famous aa a photographer of
wild animals in their native haunts.
Mr. Newett will urge as his defense
that he was criticising a public man
then running for office.
For the publication of an editorial
statement Mr. Roosevelt asks $ 10,000
damages. The case is set for hearing
before Judge Richard C. Flanulgan.
William P. Belden, thief counsel for
George A. Newett, defendant i'l the
Roosevelt libel suit, returned today
from Chicago, where he was engaged
yesterday assisting in taking deposi
tions to be used in the trial Monday.
"I doubt if the case will require two
weeks," said Belden. "The depositions
are much alike and the testimony
should be brief."
When the suit is disposed of, New
ett "will return to Chicago for an op
eration for stomach trouble. He has
already been under treatment there.
