Rockefeller, Jr. explained lo a congressional com- I mittee, investigating the Colorado' labor war, Uiat an important officer I of a great corporation couldn't bo expected to know anything about the working und living conditions of the workmen employed-that he must necessarily depend for such matters on thc word of subordinates, and must allow them wide discretion in. handling their labor problems. The last few days John D., Jr. has been making a personal investigation of the labor situation on the property of the Colorado Fuel und Iron Co Ho has talked and eaten with the Mbor ers, swung a pick in the coal mines, inspected the miners' houseB and sought to obtain a complete, detailed understanding of thc human clement Involved In the corporation's work. From all accounts the young bil lionaire hus been getting on famous ly with tho workmen, and he will probably continue to get on with them. For he has found that the men aro Immun beings very much like himself; and the same astonishing fact ha? dawned on tho miners. Out of their meeting face to fuco, as friendly co-workers rather than ene mies, will come better treatment and better fortuno for both the capital and labor involved in that industry. This desirable consummation comes because young John D. Jr., has re versed hlB opinion. It would come about In a great many other indus tries if tho big capitalists would fol low his oxample. What ls needed in tho relations of capital and labor more than anything cse IR the per sonal relation between the men with tho money and the men with the muscle. The economic problem ls at bottom a human problem. Thero must be personal contact to Insure the mu tual 'good will without which signed wage BCC1?B and protocolo are fu tile. Tho fewer "middlemen" there aro between capitalist and workman, the better. JITNEY SUBMARINES. Henry Ford's Idea for a gas-englno submarine ia particularly Interesting. If such engines can really be used for under-water craft, providing pro pelling power aa efficiently as they do on tho surface, and not .betraying the craft by a trail of escaping gas, their value will bo enormous. They would probably never supersedo the Improv ed batteries recently perfected by Edison. Tho submariue at present is handi capped by the fact that lt must carry two sets of machine*)*-an oil-burn ing engine for use on the surfaco and. a set of batteries for motive power! under water. The former can't bo used whon submerged, and the latter exhausts its power too quickly in sur faco cruising. If a single gasoline eu gine can be substituted for this double power equipment, lt will mean a vast Improvement in lightness, speed, ease of control and cruising range. That is ar. engineering problem which Mr. Ford as a gas-engine ex pert should be able to handle, If any body can. The application he sug gests for his Idea ls appealing In tts picturesqueness. Ho proposes to use these under water gasoline motors for "Jitney sub marines." They will be craft so small that one or two men can operate them. Their cost will not be more than a good touring car or motor boat. Each will hold one torpedo possibly as "a pill on the end of a pole"-and several such crsft might be carried on a torpedo boat or other war vessel and launched anywhere to attack an adjacent enemy. A hostile battleship would bo assailed by a dosen of them at once. Tho losses would count little In Uvea or property value. By sheer numbers and the confusing nature ot their attack, a hundred or more of them might con ceivably destroy an enUro fleet. And that put*-, up to, the naval ex ports another puzsling question. Tho present trend ot submarine construc tion is toward gr*at ebie and cruising i rsnge. Is that all wrong, from a de fensiv:, point ot view? Is the "Jitney submarine" to carry tho day against the "submarine cruiser?" "It ls Jobs that women need." says Dean Johnson of Now York Univer sity. ''If they could all land oometntng to do that would Interest them and rhy them enough so that they could live decently, I think we would very soon hear little about this terrible un rest which seems to be causing so much trouble these diys." It's doubtless true. In spite of all the sentimont that has bent wasted on women who are "forced to. leave their homes and go out Into the world to earn their living." lt's likely that most of those same women are far JOBS FOB WOMEN. nioro co?t mi iud doing something "out' in thc world" than they would be at home, engaged in petty or useless cares or folding their hands in old fashioned idleness. idleness palls, on a live woman no less than a live man. And the Idle ness of unemployed women becomes more and more intolerable, as one by one thc domestic tasks that once be longed tp the feminine members of the household have been taken from her by the new social organization. Her wool ls spun, lier cloth is woven, her gu mien ts come i oady-made for her and her children. Her fruits and Jellies arc canned in factories. Her bread is baked just as well and as chouply as she can bake it. Her but ter and milk arc delivered at her door. Efficient and inexpensive laun dries relieve her of ba^K-breaking toll. Vacuum cleaners -lighten her work Everything tends to give her more leisure than her grandmother had. And with the energy released by this new leisure, lt would bc remark able indeed If che were not "restless" -particularly when almost any wo man of brains feels that she could make more than enough money in congenial employment to employ un ambitious servants for her routine housework. Men and women arc by no means so different as people have imagined -certainly not so different as men have imagined. Man's greatest need and blessing has always been a Job; and it's perfectly natural that wo men now should experience the same need. CHEMICAL PBOGUE? Uncle 8am is making real progress in chemical lines. The famine in dye stuffs which has so greatly inconven ienced American industries since tho war began ls already finding relief. Tho First National Exposition of Chemical Industries at the Grand Central Palace In Now York shows that about fifty important colors aro now being produced in quantities that will soon mako the United Stetes in dependent of Germany. In another year, or two years at most, lt ls ex pected that the making of, aniline dyes will have become one of the grcato.it American industries, not only supplying our own needs but making headway in foreign marketa At present everything tends to en courage the development of the busi ness. - Prices are abnormally high. The govcrnmont ls lendnig Its aid in every way possible, and government chemists have contributed valuable discoveries. Thomas A. Edison has perfected a new process for getting benzol, the basic aniline material, from the waste of gas of coke factor ies, which has heretofore represented a loss of $100,000,000 a year. Dr. Rittman of thc federal bureau of mines has worked out a process for obtaining benzol from petroleum. Private chemists are making steady progross in adapting old formulas or discovering new ones. The govern- r ment has established at the New York custom house a bureau for tho promo tion of dyestuff industry. New com panies are going into tho business, and old ones sre extending their plants. It is virtually certain that the next congress will enact legislation to protect the new industry from im proper foreign competition when peace comes. The potash industry, too, for which, after dyestuff, there is the greatest need in America, ls ratting on its feet. A new procesr .s said to have been discovered for extracting potash direct from feldspar, so simple and commercially practicable that we shall ?soon havo the potash we need for fer tiliser.

The Grand Master is a resident of Green ville, while the Deputy Grand Master cen?es from Laurens.

The window is dec orated with black and white, "blazer" striped paper in a most effective way. The only articles on display in the window are a few black bata and white kid gloves.

I con say this for them, they are two of the beBt weavers I have ever Been. Their names arc ?Taylor and Brown and they have been reared right there in the mill village but are determined to get an educa tion and are well on their way. One of these boys has in his mind to Do como a doctor but I believe he ought to become a mechanical engineer for he has a turn that way. If he would do this ho would make a ,-ood one. jit seems to me that tho fellow who gets the practical side of anything be fore he gets the theory, is always bet ter than the man that gets it vice versa.

The Store with a Conscience" G. A. R. Veter Hold Anim In Nati Washington, September 25. Thousands of veterans of the Union j army are here on t'.io eve of the for- ' ty-ninth annual encampment of tho Grand Army of the Republic. Fifty years after Gie last shot was fired survivors of Gie union host which marc" .ed in review from the capitol to Gie White House, are to retrace their steps next Wednesday. . In the court of honor where Presi dent Johnson stood Septem uer 29, 1865, President Wilson will stand to greet the remnant of the victorious armies of Grant and Sherman. Elab orate plans have been made to assuro si>e success of Gie encampment and the city is in holiday array. Pennsyl vania avenue through which Ute mili tary pageant will pass is wailed with the national colors, and Gags fluitoi* from windows and housetops. By tomorrow lt is expected 20,000 veterans, many of them survivors of the 160,000 who participated in V.:e grand review of 1865, will have reach ed Ute city. Preparations for enter taining 100,000 visitors have been made. On the opening day of the encampment various Informal recep tions will be held and much of the time given over to registration under a system whereby veterans can easily find old comrades. President Wilson will attend tho first formal reception in a ?luge au ditorium adapted for the purpose in the old Census building near the capi tol which also will contain headquar ters of the various departments and army court of the grand army and allied organizations during the en campment. The following day the military review will be held. General Nelson A. Milos, who will act as marshall of tho review, taking Ute placo of General Sherman occu pied in 1865, and David J. Palmer, commander-in-chief of the?G. A. FX already have arrived. Arnon gothers who' are here or expected bj tomor mor are the following noted veterans: General James H. Wilson, of Wil mington, Del., and General Granville M. Dodge, of Council Binffs, Iowa, Ute oily two living corps commanders of the Union army; division comman ders General Adelbert Ames, of Mis sissippi, Gen. D. Mc M. Gregg, ot Pennjc.yhUnlai; General Lewis A. Grant, Minn., Gen. J. Warren Keif cr. of Ohio and Brig. Gen. John T. Wilder, of Knoxville, Tenn. Nearly aU che veterans who marched with Sherman and Grant who are enrolled for the lin* of march Wednocday have passed seventy' years of age and it ls probable that another commem oration of th? event never will be held. The line of march tor the parade will ho from Peace Monument at the east entrance of C ie Capitol grounds, np Pennsylvania avenue and through a court of honor erected in front of the White House. With Ute other distinguished officers of the United States, Justices of the supreme court and members of congress. Besides tbs veterans hi line there will be eons ot veterans, various cltisens military organizations, troops of ft* regular army, marino corps and sailors from tb? fleet. Tho parede. it Ls estimated^ will re quire about three boara in passing. General Mlle?, aa honorary grand marshall of the parade, will have army and navy officers aa his aides. Col. Holser, chief ot staff to tho om msadeMn-cShief of the G. A. R.. will be the active marshall. Aa special Tu ard to Commander-in-chief Palm er will be the U. S. Grant Post of Brooklyn, N. Y. Veterans will march in their respective grand ar my departments, the lien being head ed by tho department of Illinois which waa the first to be organized after the war. On T-Jursday and Friday business Misti tigs ot Ute encamprovnt, Mth sessions ot allied organizations will al Reunion ional Capital tie held. After thu el cet lou of grand officers Friday the veterans will pro cee dto Arlington National cemetery where President Wilson will lay the cornerstone of a new national am .pi theatre. Another feature will be a public reception in the Capitol Thurs day evening under tho auspices of the Women's Relief corps. Tala or ganization, co-operating with the wo men of the O. A. H. will plant two trees, one on each-side of the boule vard leading to the Lincoln Memorial in Potomac park. The first spadeful ot earth in planting the first tree will be turned by Commander-in-Chief David J. Palmer, wbllo Mrs. Sarah E. Fulton, president of tf.ie Women's Relief corps, will have that honor in planting tho second tree. One of the events for tomorrow will be the wig-wagging of a message of greeting and good will to visiting vet erans from President Wilson.- The I message will be signalled by men familiar with the old Myer code which was sent from station to station about Washington by survivors of the sig nal corps of" fifty years ago. Signalling features of u:e encamp ment will continue throughout tho week under charge of Lieut. George Carr Round, president of the United States Veterans Signal Corps asso ciation. The main station of the vet eran sbrnal corps will -be on the heights of Georgetown in tho ex treme western section 'of Washington and upon the spot where the govern ment had its Signal Instruction cunps during tho war. Mt. Tabor Methodist church which stands there will bo the headquarters. From that point welcomes will be wig-wagged and messages.of peace and'good will to the world are to be sat. Other stations are established at Fort Stevens, Fort De I/assy; tho National Soldiers Home, Fort Richardson and the Dome of the Capitol. Secretary Garrison and Secretary Daniela have co-operated with the committees to entertain the veterans. Regular troops from Fort Myer are to give daily drill exhibitions on the Washington Monument grounds *.\? idle submarines, torpedo boats and other small naval craft unknown to civil war times are to be on exhibi tion in Washington harbor in the Po tomac. Mingling in the throngs of wearers of the Blue who. have reached here are wearers of the Confederate Gray w< ;o wore especially invlfrl to attend the encampment. The invitations were extended as a result of the union of thc Blue and tho Gray at Gettys burg two years ago. NEW JERSEY JUSTICE Aged Woman Apple Picker Punished Despite Pretests. (From The Wall Street Journal.). More than 60 residents ot Linden attended court proceedings inls, morn ing to protest against the fining of Mrs, Susana Hudak, who ls psst CO years old, for taking seven apples from under tho trees of a neighbor's orchard.

Interests Experted to Quite England for Hie United States. (Adams In Boston .sews Bureau.) The position of so-called German hunkers In England and the United States ls highly Interesting at tho present time. I hear that there is likely to.be a great exodus of Ger man banking interests and of bank ing fortunes In general from Great Britain to ti.ie United States. After the war, taxes are likely to bo heavy enough to constitute a handicap in banking transactions and the expan sion of capital Interests In London. I am told that Sir Edgar Speyer, now summering in New England, not only desires to renounce his English titile but ls likelly to become an Am erican citizen. It has been Incomprehensible on this side of the water that tfte Eng lish should try to drive big bank ing Interests associated with English finance slmplly because they sprang from Germany or had large German connections. The attacks upon the house of Speyer have not been un derstood upon U.is Bide of the wa ter. I think lt will surprise most peo ple to learn that there ls a senti ment In England that but for the fi nancial interests of Speyer nnd Cas sel, Turkey might now be on the side ot England. , This ls the story I vet from an American bankers. I give it because lt Bhows how important are financial movement tn connection with politi cal or governmental action. Bank ing power was never so big and never so important as today. It is tho ono free and mobile power in the world. Because ot the Impor tance of financial power I give this story as I heard it from the banker although I have not bad the time or the opportunity to confirm lt. "Stiortdy before the outbreak of hostilities between England and Tur key, at a time when Great Britain thought she had Turkey and Turkish interests lined up on the side ot the allies, the Imperial & Ottoman bank (n London, controlled by Slr Edgar Speyer andi Slr Ernest Cassel, is said to have called all ita loans in Turkey and Mohammedan countries in gen eral. "As a result there was a suddo-i and completely change of sentiment un the part of Turkish leaders who feared England was trying to ruin their country and its business. Prom that time Gie controlling powers in Turkey favored the cause of Ger many. "When the action of the Imp?rial & Ottoman bank came to the atten tion of tho British war office, botth Speyer and Cassel wcro caliea to task. "Each claimed Gie object of call* lng loans waa to get together in Lon don all the funds available so that the bank might purchase some or tho now British treasury notes which then were about to be issued. "As Is openly known, Speyer was forced to leave England because of th* feeding against him." Knew Hts Townsmen. A Glasgow hawker was touring the provinces, offering for sale bis marvelous euro-all mixture, and one lay, when about to uncork a bottle to-* hts audience to sample, he found to Cit? disgust that bis sorkscrew i7as missing. "Is there Any gentleman in thia trowd tresa Glasgow 7" hs asked, looking over his audience. "?es! I am,'* time a reply, in an unmistakably GIasgow aocenf.. "Then lend me yonr corkscrew," iras the quick rejoinder. Now comes the author who de sleres that "the Inferiority ot South* 5rn men in 1865" ls due to the fact hat she lost her best and had to ac cept a generation bred frorr the reaker-stock.
