And the Ixrd said, I have
surely seen the aftlictiou of my
people whicn are In Egypt. and
have heard their cry by reasou
of their taskmasters; for 1
know their sorrows;
And 1 am come down to de
liver them out of the hand of
the Egyptians, and to bring
them up out of that land unto
a good land and large, unto n
land flowing with milk and
honey.—Exodus iii: 7-8.
CINCINNATI, 0.. Pec. 10.—’The
Promised Land is a short Way from
Nipe Mile, 0.. which is close to Ame
lia, in Clermount county.
The inhabitants thereof came from
Russia to America. They found work
In sweatshops and homes In Clnclu*
natl tenements. Their children sick*
ened. Their playground wfls in the
dark rooms, on the crowded sidewalks
and on the fire escape landings. Eggs
were 50 cents a dozen and kosher
beef 18 cents a pound.
“No,” said they one to another,
“this cannot* b* rtw> Promised Land.
In Russia, at least, we had fleshpots,
and the air was free."
And they turned their faces to the
east, and Joseph Khoodln, a tailor,
was sent forth as a messenger to
search out the land, even as the wan
dering Israelites sent, forth to spy out
tha laud of Canaan 340** years ago.
and to report upon whether the land
was fat or lean, and whether there
Was wood therein.
And Khoodln, who is of the tribe or
Levi, searched througn Clermont
county, and he brought back word
that surely it must be the Promised
Land, for It floweth with milk and
honey.
And thither they Journeyed from
their sweatshops and their tenements.

JOHN Z. WHITE PRAISES
COMMISSION PLAN
“In the commission idea, the head
of a department is responsible for his
acts, and there Is no chance for him to
shift the reponslbility to another,"
said John Z. White, speaking before
the civic club of St. Paula cathedral,
Monday night.
“Such a government !g less dumber
some and gives opportunity to get
something done. Suppose a ship in
a storm at sea were under the con
trol of one of our city councils, with
Us whole string of committees, do you
suppose that it would ever get Into
port?'*
Mr. White believes that the initia
tive, referendum and recall are neces
sary checks upon the commissioner to
make them responsible to the people.
“The necessity for these wa* appar
ent," he asserted, “when the Houston,
lex., commission became tyrannical,
and so they have been introduced by
the cities which have since taken up
this form of government, in Des
Moines, la.; Spokane, Wash.; Grand
Junction, Col., and leaven worth,
Kan."
Mentioning the Leavenworth case in
conversation Mondav. Mr. White re
marked. “That was one of the worst
governed cities of Kansas, now It is
one of the beat; not any great change
of human nature, you understand, or
a visitation of the angels, but merely
the introduction of a system that
makes good government possible."

Freight Traffic In Tied Fp
and Pu&senger Service
Crippled
LONDON, Dec. 10.—All of the rail
way men in Sunderland, York ami
Leeds today walked out, in sympathy
with the 3,000 strikers on the North
eastern railway, swelling the total of
those out to more thaa 10,000.
The labor trouble has practically
tied up freight traffic, and seriously
hampered passenger ti importation on
the roads afTected. and business of ah
kinds is at a standstill.
The collerieg and iron foundries of
the territory Involved in the strike to
day, were preparing to* close down in
definitely, unless the disagreement
was settled.
The strike is ostensibly for per
sonal liberty. Engineer Knox, of the
Northeastern, was reduced lu rank, be
cause he was drunk. His fellows in
sisted he had a right to get drunk, so
long us he attended to his work. The
railway officials refused to reinstate
Knox, and the men struck.
Home Secretary McKenna, today re
ceived an appeal from the reduced
englneman, Knox, iu which he de
clared that the charge that he was
drunk, was not supported by evidence.
