King Replies to Partners Who
Charge Temperance Talk
Hurt Business
Admits Dad Is a Prohibi
tionist but That Didnt
Start Law Suit
The water wagon had nothing to do
w h the breaking up of the paint and
varnish manufacturing firm of Will
Iam H King 8 Co with an office at i
No 17 State street and a factory In
Brooklyn At lenst that Is what the
president Mr King fnys thereby
r contradicting Armln Klchler the vlce
president who has applied to the Su
jircmn Court for the oluntary dis
solution of the concern and says Ill
Is pretty nearly nutty on account of
Mr Kings prohibition tall
Mr Klchlrr and J Arthur Clem the
secretory seek the dissolution nnd Mr
Klchler accompanied his application with
H statement In which IIP described the I
president ns srvcul kinds of a 1urltan
not to mention an acrusntlon that he Is
K lllicctor In Anthony Comstocks vice
iilppresslon society nid a Lnlversallst
He said Mr King talked prohibition
morning noon ami night that he I
wouldnt hire a salesman unless the
j man would climb to as high a perch us
the one lie Mr King perniiuently oc
cupies on th < > water wngen and that
this attitude had lost the firm much
moneyAll Poppycock He Says
Mr King Is Inclined to be choleric over
these Interviews and Intimated that he
might say something about Mr Klcliltr
which wouldnt go through the malls
He has a son Parker D who Is treasu
rer and hj was as hot under the collar
as a treasurer of a paint factory can
Its all poppycock said Mr King
this talk of nichlers about my Pro
hibition principles hurting the business
i Jm no prudclt Isnt that 1 am against
idrinking from sentimental reasons but
from a political standpoint because I
consider It a tralllc that Is dangerous
to tho business Interests of the country
I A Unlversallst resa member of Com
Mocks society eslllli proud of It
I sir
As for malted milk ho continued
certainly I drink It as Klchler says
and It Is about all I do drink because I
urn troubled with nervous Indigestion
I know a lot of people who would be
better off If they would drink malted
milk Instead of some other things But
1 dont seo what thats got to do with
the paint business I simply regard thh
talk of Bidders as an effort to let
himself down easy
Didnt Preach But
You see Kiehler and Clem simply
taw the handwriting on the wall said
3uiing Mr King who wears glasses and
evidently nns something of a temper
lilmseir This company was organized
Teb So 1SOS with a capital stock of
JltWOOO and Elchler and Clem didnt put
a cent Into It Elcliler has drawn a big
salary The Idea of him talking that
way about my dad He knew his finish
was approaching and he took this
method to put In a last blow
Did dad ever preach prohibition to
you Capt Baker he asked turning
to one of the salesmen In the office
cv heavy set man with an English ac
cent I
centPreached Xot he answered the
1 captain He simply asked me once
f to vote the Prohibition ticket and 1
I told him I couldnt conscientiously do
It and there wis an end of It
As for binoklng dad doesnt object to
that although he doesnt smoke him
lelt continued the son Elchler Is
nlto sore because dad criticised the man
agement of the factorv which Elchler
was supposed to direct The fire risk on
paint factorl Is very hlsii and when
I nn Chrlntmas night our watchman i
man Elchler hired left the place be
cause he was on a drunk dad naturally
1 got hot and fired him

College Man Has Much to Get
Over in Making a Start i
in Railroading
ward H Ilnrrlman the railroad owner I
and financier has written lor the Vale
Dally News his views on college train I
ing as a preparation for railroading He
said In part
i The question which jou have asKei I
me Is college education an essential or
even a valuable preparation for a man
who expects to enter railroading Is a
hard one to answer and my answer Is
both Yea and No1 A college educa I
tion vvlll be a great help If the man In
going tliroupli college has kept the
foundations of high school learning
firmly fixed On the other hand If he
has neglected Ills handwriting and for
gotten his arithmetic In higher mathe
matics nothing could be worse for him
If however he still retains these
I essentli he has a gteiU advantage In
1 that he has a broader view of the world
I and a greater knowledge of how ti
The high school boy has the advan
tage In that all the first essentials of
good work In rallioadlng are at his
fingers ends For Instance take tl
making of u simple statement A statr
ment should be llko u picture something
i that can be tnkon In at a glance not n
jumble of letters and flguies that must
be traced carefully out and the meaning
extracted from the mass of superfluous
matter A high school boy will draw
tuch a statement with perfect accuracy
and clearness while a young college
graduate will draw it in such a way that
It Is a puzzling scrawl
Thus college education Is In the be
ginning n disadvantage and I have
found that In every case the high school
boy doe better work than the college
man for the tirst few rears However
as soon as the collvee man has over
come these habits and has gotten back
to first principles he will go ahead much
faster than his less educated rival His
mind Is naturally 1llIer developed and
more capable of grafplng the tine points
of the business
On the other hand the high school
bov as btlng younger Is more adapt
able and has not In mmt case the Ir I
regular Imblts of HIP College man
