A GOOD MOVE.
- One of- the widest things that the
longshoremen in and about New, York
ever did, was to submit their griev
ances to arbitration and thereby stop
the increasing congestion that was
being caused by ' their strike. It re
quired several days to make them
- appreciate thr effects of their inac
. tivity and what it meant to the coun
try to cause such stagnation as was
resulting from their refusal to work.
That a continuance in their action
-- 'was likely to result in government in
terference and possibly in the resort
to conscriptio-n in order to prevent
Ilia interruption of the trade through
t h?- port of New York may have had
.its influence, but as a matter of fact
there was no 'reason why the trouble
should not be submitted . to arbitra-
t lion. . There was nothing in the dis
pute which could not be settled in
such a manner and settled fairly for
, all concerned. So long as the striked
was continued there was IKtte chance
t for an adjustment in accordance with
, the facts. Yet that is the proper way
and the one which will now be fol
lowed. It is fortunate therefore that
the men have reached this conclusion
but equally so that they have done
. no at an early date both for their own
good In preventing a further loss of
wages and for the good of the nation
that commerce may- be no longer im
peded for. that reason. It may be a
vain hope but it will show magnifi
cent progress in the wdrld of labor
- whsnsthe adjustment of all such tron
. . ties can be depended upon from the
start through just such an avenue.
"S THE CENTRAL POWERS' REPLY.
' There-- is nothing tihusual or unex
pected in -the response which has been
- made by Germany and Austria to the
peace proposals-, of Pops Benedict.
They are in accord In their replies
looking for a peace which will be fa
, vorable to them and In that connec
tion such a reply as each haa sent
might just as well have . been made
' 1 'within a few day of th proposal.

Friditt Wlbft. it wag made plain
that Uir caa'b no Itttthar negotia

of any - term peace with It can

powers are seeking .through. tBe terri

to secure an advantage In a discussion
of peace regardless of -th principles

Thus the acceptance of. a programme

NEED : MQRE: VESSELS.
The Claim Is beig mMe that lnas
mneh 'as there ' is an unprecedented
cohgeetlen on- the railroads -. of the
country,' tie demands for transporta
tion being greater than the facilities
available can handle, greater attention
ougttt to be 'given to the -development
of tha inland waterways. -
There can- be little question . but
whit the waterways jMong the Atlantic
coast are ot great-value to tidewater
and other shipping ; . there can be ho
doubt but what there is a big oppor
tunity through such canals, rivers and
sounds a are mad Suitable for coast
wise trade to give valuable assistance
jo- the ' transportation problem, but it
ia -,a question, whether" millions which
are so - necessary In other directions
should devoted tosthis development
at the present time... . " ,"--
The fact of the matter Is that water'
transportation through many -, of , ths
protected- arms of the sea is .not what
i should be. It Is costing more to get
coal by barge thaq by fail at tide
water points, when if. the fleet of. coal
carrying vessels was doing all that
was ' possible m this particular the
needs of New England in thia direc
tion could hm better, served than they
are. It la thus useless to spend a lot
of money developing the waterways
until sufficient vessels for using them
can be provided. ' There la a, crying
need far' Increasing our coasting ves
sels of all kinds and when that is ac
complished 4. bigr load can be removed
from the railroads, but thopening up
of the waterways without, having any
vessels will "not do it.
; AN EYE -OPENER.
- While, there were reasons ro believe
that, the representatives of Germany
:n. ibis country were exceeaing tnei:
i tgiits and working against the neu
traiity of this country for a long time
before there- was a severance of diplo
ma tic relations, th disclosures which
have just been - mad by th state de
partment relative to such '. operation
make it evident that th government
was well in touch with what was go
ing on. "' ; . -
The dismissal , of certain attaches
and evn the handing of passports to
Count Bemstorff did not put an end
to the eltver Intrigue that was under
way. There-were there in ou. midst
who .were . equally danaercus. This
was because some of them were not
openly 1 suspected and because others
were carefully covering their tracks. If
anything was necessary, to convince!
this nation of the necessity of striking
thi element anA, Striking it hard, it
was ' provided in, the diaclosures which
have Just been mjde. , Bemstorff had
an organisation - in tfhis - country or
which he eould depend to get his work
done, to bring an inflftenoe to bear
upon xiT; congrsei and to Operate for
the benefit' of German-.. Ari when in

pppareht that he controlled those' who
were willing to work cheap.
TheraT has been i crying need for
the rooting out or all tha .spies, the
shutting to. them of all means of com
munication ith the enemy and the
Mocking of the-advantages .which they
have been enjoying, but new emphasis
is added to It by the- disclosures which

' ' " WHAT! OF WHEY.
Apropos, of the economical use, of
food, a word mojre regarding pour milk,
may be timely. Should the milk be
come' thick, let stand until Whey sep
arates from the curd. Pour into a
clean cloth and hang by the points of
it until it has drained thoroughly.
Add salt and an eighth teaspoon of
caraway seed to the curd. - Mix with
fresh cream or milk before serving
Use the 'whey for coi-nmeal, oatmeal,

most satisfactory method. Do not

will bulge in the ' middle, antJnalf the
design of the patch, that of neatness,
will be a failure. . Should the selvage

HEALTH AND BEAUTY.

of an acidy condition. . Zinc ointment

A remedy for boils, so Simple that
it it often overlooked is water as
warm as can be borne. Apply wet

To air the hair take out all the
pins and shake the hair loose. Stand
before an open window, shaking fhe
hair until it has been thoroughly air
ed. Then arrange it for the night.
Never let remain massed on the
head. This will soon take all the .life
and fine texture from it. Instead,
part it in middle of the forehead down

Abington, Sept. 21, 1917.
OTHER VIEW POINTS
It is an impressive statement which
has been made by the Yale auhorities
with regard to the part the institution
is taking in supporting th govern
ment in its prosecution of the war. Not
only have elaborate plans been made
for instruction in field artillery among
the undergraduates- but the teaching
force has responded superbly to the
government's can for assistance in va
rious fields of research work. One
looks in vain for a suggestion of he
brown study in it all. We encounter
rather the passion of the workshop.
The eounry has prepared itself for
the changes which will follow the end
ing of the war and we have no -doubt
the Yale management realize that the
university itself will never be again
what it has been In its outlook: upon
life and its obligation to the youth of

This week has thus far been pro
lific in automobile fatalities in .this
state. Because of reckless driving sev
eral persons ar dead and others are
In the hospital. These, things make
our new automobile law look as fool
ish as the old One. Weak laws weak
ly enforced are an abomination. The
Connecticut automobile law does not
give the protection that was hoped
for, but this state has never been
deeply concerned over automobile kill
ings. There is excitement only when
a criminal is about to pay the penalty
ior muraer in tne nrst degree. Then.
and only then, is there a roar of pro
test to the governor. When little, chil
dren, women and useful men and citi
zens are struck down in he streets by
the modern -juggernauts the only pro
test comes from their families and an
occasional newspaper. We submit that
