ed shop. That rock is avoided by the
adoption of the "preferential unton
shop" idea, for Which Louis D. Bran
dies of Boston, counsel for Glavis in
the Pinchot-Ballinger bearing, is giv
en full credit.
What is Agreed To.
In the article of agreement the idea
is thus described:
"Each merrer of the Manufacturers'
association is to maintain a union
shop: a union shop being understood
to refer to a hop where union stand
ards as to working- conditions, hours of
labor and rates of wages prevail, and
where, when hiring- help, union men
are preferred: it being recognized that,
since there are differences of degrees
of skill, employes Bhall have the free
dom of selection a between one un
ion man and another, and shall not be
confined to any list, nor bound to fol
low any prescribed order whatever."
Other articles provide for:
Free electric power.
No work at home.
Discipline of any manufacturer prov
ed guilty of discrimination among his
Six days work a week and a cash
weekly pay day.
Aii sub-contracting within shops
Nine hours work a day five days a
week, and five hours the sixth day.
The price of peacework to be agreed
upon by a committee of employes and
their employers.
Double pay for overtime.
Endorsee Trades Unions.
Mr. Cohen concludes Ms statement
witih the following declaration, re
markable for one in his position:
"Trades unions are not only neces
sary, but must be guided and strength
ened. I shall urge my clients to use
every legitimate means to that end and
I shall urge upon them strongly that
each present employe in their shop join
the union."

Beverly, Mass.. Sept. 2. President
Taft has a long list of matters to take
up with his cabinet advisers. He will
reach Washington September 21 for a
ten days' stay and the cabinet will be
in practically continuous session Sep
tember 26, 27 and 2S. All the mem
bers of the gabinet whose families are
still out of? town will be the presi
dent's guests at a "slag" party at the
White house.
One of the principal subjects- to be
discussed will be the forthcoming ap
pointments to the United States su

again today that it was not his pur
pose to call an extraordinary session
of the senate to confirm the' appoint
ments. They will wait until the reg
ular session of congress begins.
President Taft also will take up with
his cabinet , in Washington the final
plans for putting the postal savings
banks in operation.

Omaha, Neb., Sept. 2. The people of
Omaha gave Theodore Roosevelt a day
of comparative rest today. All the col
onel did was to attend a breakfast
given by the Roosevelt reception com
mittee, a luncheon at the Field club, a
dinner at the Omaha club, an enter

boomers' club of Omaha; take an au

talk with political leaders and old
friends whom he met there.
Several other things had been plan

sent from Kansas City last night say
ing he was tired and needed a day of
Football Tactics in Use.
The Auditorium, where the princi
pal speech was delivered, was jammed,
and the crowd in the street was so
groat that Colonel Roosevelt had to
use the tactics of a football player to
get throngh the throng to his automo
bile. During the remainder of the day,
however, the people had little oppor
tunity to see him, us the parade was
called off to make it easier for him,
and his appearances in the streets
were in a rapidly moving automobile.
He went to bed earlier than usual to
night. In the morning he will attend
a breakfast at the Omaha club, and
then leave for Sioux Falls, where he is
to saeak tomorrow.
Greatest Man in the World.
Senator Burkett introduced Colonel
Roosevelt as "the man who was once
the first citizen of the nation, and is
now the greatest man in the world."
There was loud applause.
"I am particularly pleased to be in
troduced by Senator Burkett.. said Col
onel Roosevelt, "because lie was one of
the men on whom I relied while I was
president, both while he was in the
house and in the' senate. On one occa
sion he paid a tribute to me which may
have been entirely unmerited, in which
he described what the typical Ameri

Statement by New York Republican
State Committeeman.
New - York.- Sept. 2. Before leav
ing for his summer home at Nantucket
tonight. AViiiiam .Barnes, Jr., republi
can state committeeman. issued a
statement in which he declared that
"hysteria has run riot throughout this
country." and that the contention to
be decide'-at the coming republican
state convention at Saratoga is
"whether the republican party will
fight the disease or succumb in the
interest of politicians, seeking office
or temporary acclaim."
The character of the recent address
es of Theodore Roosevelt, in the west,
31 r. Barnes says, "has startled all
thoughtful men and impressed them
with the frightful danger which lies
in his political ascendancy." As a
member of tiie state committee. Mr.
Barnes says he proposed the name of
Vice President Sherman for temporary
chairman of the state convention with
out consultation with President Taft
or Colonel Roosevelt. When he had
talked with the colonel after the meet
ing and had learned what his attitude
toward "public matters" was at that
time. -Mr. Barnes says he told him that
he never could have voted for him.
Timothy L. Woodruff. the state
chairman, who w;is at state headquar
ters when M' Barnes gave out his
statement, said he subscribed to all
the Albany leader had said.
Mr. Barnes said earlier in the day
that he did not think Vice President
Sherman would withdraw as a candi
date for the chairmanship. adding
that it would be foolish of him if he
FairPeld. Conn.. Sept. 2. When Mr.
Barnes' statement was communicated
to "Lloyd '. Griscom. chairman of the
New York county committee, at his
place here tonight, he dictated the fol
lowing reply:
"Mr. Barnes is striving by words to
make the imblic forget that he and his
closest political associates have re
cently been caught in an ugly and de
ceitful attempt to obtain control of
the coming republican state conven

state will have a welcome opportunity
at the convention to reprove such
"The trial of direct primaries in the
state of New York, under a new sys
tem carefully elaborated by Governor
Hughes meets with the approval of
such wise leaders as President Taft,
Mr. Roosevelt and Senator Root. It is
difficult to see why the republican par
ty should refuse to the voters an op
portunity of closer and greater partic
ipation in party government.
"I doubt if any word of Mr. Barnes
will make this clear."
Government Satisfied They Are No
Longer Needed in Nicaragua.
Washington. S?pt. 2. Recognizing
that order is being restored in Nicara
gua, the United States government has
ordered .the withdrawal of the Ameri
can marines from Bluefields. They
will be taken to th; isthmian canal
zone, their regular station.
- The presence of American marines
on Nicaraguan soil led to one of the
most serious complications between
the -Madriz and Estrada forces on tha

"In my own case,'' Colonel Roose--velt
continued, "all I can say is that I
have endeavored to live up to that de-.
scription, and that I was able to ac
complish what I did accomplish" In
Washington only because of the wav
in which I was backed up by men like
Senator Burkett, and as we havet a

Must Fortify Panama Canal.
Then Colonel Roosevelt proceeded
with his set speech, in which he spoke
of the Panama canal and the navy.
He said that the trip of the American
fleet around the world increased great
ly the prestige of this country, : and
that the work which is 'being done on
the canal is one of the stupendous per
formances of all the ages. He took
sharp issue with the plan which mt
placed before congress at the last Bee
son of neutralizing the canal zone, and
in strongest terms declared that this
country should fortify the canal. -
Three Men in American History.
After Colonel Roosevelt had finish-'
ed there were cries for Senator Dolli
ver, who spoke briefly in praise of Mr.
"There have been three men in
American history," said Senator Dol
liver, "who have stated the central .
doctrine of our institutions so that all
could be. understood. Thomas Jeffer
son gave us the doctrine of equal
rights and special pvrivileges for none.
Abraham Lincoln re-stated this doe
trine. It is a good prvidence that in
our time that doctrine has been stated?
again, the doctrine of a square deal.
"In the next ten years the young men.
of the United States will see to it that
the doctrine of a square deal Is true,
and keut true for all time."

a hand in what he termed the "con
spiracy" against him. Friends of Dr.
Holmes, while admitting the latter's
close association and friendship with
Messrs. Pinchot. Garfield and Newell,
declared nevertheless that he had tak
en no . active part in the campaign
against Mr. Ballinger.

the place was almost unanimous. . Tt
came from the mine operators and the
miners' organizations alike.
