Bad Conditions Found by Civic
Federation Committee.
Th*> report prepared by Mrs. J. Borden
Harrlman, of the Civic Federation, and
Mrs. Marcus M. Marks, of the garment
trades, on factories and workshops in" the
garment trades throughout this city, was
made public yesterday. Copies of the re
port have been sent by Mrs. Harrimari to
the members of the women's department In
the federation in all the other cities, ac
companled by letters asking for sugges
tions. - , : .'';«';. . •
All kinds of factories and workshops i"
tho trade have been visittd, according to
the report, both where the conditions were
first class and where they were bad. lie
nides Mrs. Hairiman and Mrs. Maries, those
who took part in the investigations were
Mr«. Charles IT. Carpenter, Mrs. Eugene S. .
Benjamin. Mrs. Robert WaU.-h«ni. Mrs.
Clement Acton Grisoom, Jr., and Mrs.
Kmanut'l Einstein.
It was found, the report says, that condi
tions were exceedingly satisfactory In a
treat number of the regular factories. It
was admitted by many of the proprietors
of these concerns that it paid them to treat
their employee with consideration. Many
of them had made a study of promoting the
comfort of the women In their employment.
In sections ot Manhattan and Brooklyn and
In Brownsville, however, the- conditions,
the report says, were deplorable, and even
the city and state departments were unable
to cope with them. The report said that
these conditions were reflected In the Irpo
and deportment of the employes.
The committee, the report says, has rec
ommended to the State Department the ap
pointment of more and better paid factory
Inspectors. Some of the previous recom
mendations of the committee have been
adopted. The committee, the report says,
same to the conclusion that all fitting in
the cloak trade should be done on lay fig
ures Instead of using- the girl« for models.
The so-called "tenant factory" is strongly
condemned. On this point the report Bays:
The tenant factory is a building where
several floors are used by different manu
facturers, and these particular parts or
the building may not be ustd for living
purposes. About one half of the owners of
'factories" contract out to proprietors of
"tenant factories" the manufacture of gar
ments, the cutting of cloth only being done
in such factories. In one of these "fac
tories" were found several beds, an in
fringement of the municipal lodging house
law, and orders were given for their re
mnval. Tin beds were in an indescribable
condition, and were rented to lodgers.
To show when large factories were made
sanitary and comfortable, two factories
which were visited were described. One,
which employed fourteen hundred persons,
had airy rooms, even a filter in the cellar
for the water used lor drinking, and a
quod library.
Manual Training Beats Morris High in
Soccer Match.
Playing their first game of the season at
the Prospect Park parade grounds, yester
day, the Association football players of
Manual Training High School won an in
tejrgcholaßtic championship fixture from
Morris High School by the score of 1 to 0.
The single tally of the game occurred in
the first half, when Arthur Ehrlich, of last
year's champion team, at inside right, took
tht ball from a pass by the right wing and
sent it neatly into the Morris High net.

Beat Yonkers High School in Game
Marred by Much Wrangling.
In an uninteresting game of football,
marred by many wrangles and fights, the
Manual Training High School eleven, de
feated the Tonkera High School team at
Washington Park yesterday by a score of
12 to 0. Two fist fights occurred on the
field, and the game threatened to end in a
forfeiture to Manual Training, on a hot
dispute over the forward pass.
The home team was fast, but was op
posed by a strong one, and had to play
its best to win. Both touchdowns scored
by Manual Training were the result of
line plunges through left tackle, which was
the weak spot in the Yonkers High School
line-up. Farley played a strong game at
fullback on the Brooklyn team, and swept
all opposition before him. Yonkers was
the aggressor in the first half, but al
though coming within striking distance
failed to score. Koster, the small quar
terback of Yonkers High, attempted a field
goal from the 15-yard line, but it .was a
poor attempt, falling five yards short. Both
teams were penalized in the first half for
delaying the game.
Five minutes after the second half opened
Manual Training, by line plunges, was able
to send Farley across the line, amid wild
outbursts of applause from the school con
tingent. Hendrickson kicked the goal. W.
Cassidy was pushed across tho line five
minutes later and Hendrickson again
kicked a goal. Yonkers High never had a
chance to score in this half.
Foley and W. Cassidy played a good
game for Manual Training, while McCullom
and Webb, who covered the ends, and
Sheeley, were conspicuous by their fast
playing for the Yonkers school.

Debt Limit Decision Will Alter
City Bookkeeping.
Jeremiah Mahoney. head of the law and
adjustment division in the Controller's office,
commenting yesterday on the debt limit
decision by the Court of Appeals, said:
"It will bo several days before a complete
statement of the city's debt can bq pre
pared. Forty-two distinct questions were
certified to tliat court for determination,
Hi"l the ruling of our highest court makes
neeeseary many changes in the system in
vogue in determining the borrowing capac
ity of the city.
"Upon a careful analysis of the figures of
the city as of June 3<\ 1908, presented to
the court, it would se*-m that the margin
of indebtedness of that date was about
$45. 000,000.
"The changes that will now havr to be
made In the city's method of calculating
the debt will include a deduction from the
total debt of all revenue bonds outstanding,
excepting those outstanding Bye years or
more after the taxes against which they
wt re levied become due. Special revenue
bonds must now be deducted ; also an in
stalment placed in the budget each year to
provide for interest, and the amortization
or the city's debt ; also all cash in the sink
ing fund and cash in those funds against
which contracts are not registered; also
bonds payable in any year, provision for
which must be made in the budget, and the
cash holdings of the sinking fund.
"As these amounts were never deducted
from the total debt, the bookkeeping meth
ods in the Department of Finance will now
be arranged so that these items can be as
certained upon very short notice. Until
that Is done we cannot tell the city's exaot
borrowing capacity, although it is safe to
pay tiiat at the present time it exceeds

ator Burton, "has been taken up with the
study of inland waterways and consulting
with experts. I think we will be able to
comply with the law, which says that the
preliminary report must be in before Jan
uary 1, li»10. The preliminary report will
make a comparison between the water
ways of Kurope and the United States,
touching upon irrigation, clarification and
navigation. I am convinced that there will
lxi a great field for the commission, and
it is destined to cover the whole subject
of transportation in the United States."

Passes 14 Cents for First Time
Since 100/,.
For tho flr-t time sines the Bully comer,
In February, 1304. the price of cotton on
the local exchange yesterday not only
reached but passed the H-cent mark bo
long predicted by the bulls. The May op
tion sold up to 14.00 cents and the March
option up to 14.03 cents on excited covering
by shorts. The other options were also
strong, the whole lint showing a net ad
vance of about 25 points, or (1 25 a bale.
The high figures of the day were reached
shortly before the noon hour and were
maintained to the close, notwithstanding
enormous reUlzing pales. The rise was at
tributed to reports from the South that the
crop would be at least 3,000,000 bales short
ami further bullish advices from the spin-
ning centres. It was rumored also that
one of the largest of the local shorts had
finished covering Friday afternoon and
was now taking the long side for an ad
vance to 14'; cents.
The market opened firm at an advance
of from 4 to 16 points under a volume of
new buying, and continued to advance
steadily during the first hour. Toward 11
o'clock the market turned sensationally
strong and prices jumped up rapidly, until
the May and March options had both
passed the 14-cent level. Prices then
eased off a trifle on profit taking by old
longs, but rallied again on further heavy
buying from spot interests and active cov
ering by the shorts, the latter,' In addition
to the bullish advices from the Southern
epot markets and from the spinning centres
before referred to, also having in view the
publication of the report of the Census Bu
reau on Monday, which will show the
quantity of cotton ginned from the growth
this season prior to October 18.
The local bull pool is headed by James
A. Patten, who first became active In the
cotton market here a few weeks ago. Mr.
Patten expressed the belief recently that
the price of cotton would ultimately go to
20 cents, basing his prediction on the small
ness of the crop, coupled with an Increased

"France is ready to fight, but I do not

Pea 'Jackets "May Replace
[From Th« Tribune Bureau ]
OH*,™ & Washington, October 21
The army overcoat may be abandoned, at
least so far as the Infantry arm Is con
cerned, and its place in military apparel
taken by the pea jacket. A suggestion of
this sort has been made to the War De
partment, and is understood to find favor
with the Infantry equipment board In ses
sion at Rock Island. 111. That board has
taken up the question of uniform, along
with tho problem of the burden of the foot
soldier, and for this reason the general
order prepared some weeks ago containing
amendments to the uniform regulations
has been held up in the office of the Chief
of Staff until the Infantry board can pre
sent Its conclusions.
There Is a difference of opinion concern
ing the adoption of the pea jacket in place
of the overcoat. Some officers believe that
the overcoat is necessary in furnishing pro
tection to the legs of the wearer, despite
the Impediment of a long coat In walk-
Ing. Those who favor the pea jacket point
out that such a garment Is usually worn
by preference In Alaska and other sections
where the Intense cold requires extra pro
tection in the way of clothing. There Is
also a disposition to resist all radical
changes in uniform, such as this abandon
ment of the overcoat might be considered.
The advocates of the pea jacket are anx
ious that it shall be adopted as an aid to
freedom of movement, while furnishing all
the bodily comfort and protection against
climate characteristic of the present long
army ordnance officers are much wrought up
over the loss of work at the army arsenal
at Watervllet. N. Y. That plant has for
a long time had a large part of the work
of building guns for vessels of the navy.
It has been of great assistance to the arse
nal In keeping employed, a force of expert
workmen who are not easily replaced once
discharged and who aye moat valuable in
the fabrication of seacoast rifles, which
is the principal function of the Watervliet
arsenal, otherwise known as the army
gun factory. It will become necessary
in a short time to suspend a number of
the employes. While this is partly due
to the approach toward completion of the
guns intended for the seacoast defences
of the United States, it Is also and mainly
attributable to the change of policy on
the part of the naval ordnance bureau in
the building of guns for the navy. Guns
for the navy which the gun factory at
the Washington Navy Yard has not the
capacity to turn out have been placed
under contract* with the Mldva'.o and
Bethlehem Steel companies, and the naval
patronage has been withdrawn from
Watervllet, probably to encourage private
manufacturers to be ready to manufacture
war materials in time of need.
The Watervltet arsenal has manufactured
for the navy a number of rifles of 12-lnch
and smaller calibres. In view of the ex
tensive pruning of the War Department
estimates to be submitted to Congress, in
cluding those for the manufacture of
ordnance material, work at the Springfield
armory in the manufacture of amall arms
is destined to fall off gradually until there
is a reduction of about 40 per cent in the
dally output.
No one In authority In Washington makes
any attempt to explain why the change has
been made In favor of contract built guns
as against the guns produced at the Water
vllet arsenal. It is asserted that as good
time could be made and certainly less cost
ly work could be done at the army gun
factory than will be represented in tht>
work done under contract. The officials of
the Navy Department do not regard the
situation as one which requires explana
tion. It Is made known that the contracts
awarded for the manufacture of guns are
justified by public interest. One phase of
the situation, naval officers say, is that
which takes into account the decidability
of encouraging private plants to do this
sort of work for the government.

I^d by Emma Goldman and Alexander
Berkman. fifteen hundred anarchists, so
cialists and laborers denounced the —
tion of Francesco Ferrer at a meeting in
Carnegie flail last night. The demonstra
tion, which was aimed against the Church,
and the State, began In Madison Square
shortly after 5 o'clock, and ended with th»
waving of red flags In Carnegie Hall, after
several speakers had bitterly denounced the
Spanish government for having allowed th»
execution of Ferrer, who was enthusiasti
cally cheered as the "martyr of tha present
With several hundred Italians. Hebrew*
and Russians in line, the parade of anar
chists and socialists left Madison Square «a
a drizzling rain. There was no cry of
d* lance until the head of the procession
reached St. Patrick's Cathedral. Then the
crowds began to shout their denunciation.-*
of the Church and State. "Sown Wtta

rulers!" "Down with the State!** echoed tb*
cries of the marchers as they passed tha
Red flags, draped with black, were un
furled as the shouting became more gea
eral. and for a time it appeared that a
demonstration would ensue, but the police
who accompanied the paraders drew their
night sticks and soon hushed the leaders.
They kept quiet until the Fifth It— s
Presbyterian Church was reached. Then
another effort was mad* to denounce tha
clergy, but again the police restored order.
In Carnegie Mall there were loss than
"two hundred persons when the marchers
entered. The stage was filled with socialist*
and anarchists, who had been invited *•

man, Leonard Abbot and Mm*. Epexla.
were among the leaders who awaited the
procession. As the marchers filed in tha
multitude cheered the dead Ferrer and de
nounced all those connected with govern
When the meeting was called to order by
Mr. Abbott, the throng again raised a cry
of "Down with the Church,' but the pres
ence of Inspector Walsh and a hundred po
licemen prevented any further demonstra
;lon. It was some time before the chair
man could be heard, as he denounced tha
"wanton killing of Professor Ferrer, whea*
death had aroused the whole world against
the Jesuits, the Pope and the State." He
added that every country resented tha atro
cious murder of the "Spanish Tolstoy."
The Church, the State and the militia got
it again when the chairman introduced
lime. Spezia, who had prepared a poem In
Italian on Professor Ferrer. Her referenced
to the deeds of the dead revolutionist were
received with cheers, and at the end of her
address the entire audience Joined in de
mands for the fall of King Alfonso and the
government of Spain.
Alexander Berknian referred to Ferrer
as a great criminal who dared to think and
express his thoughts against the constituted
authorities of oppression. He added that
alt those present were equally guilty and
worthy of death with Ferrer. Then Berk
man said Ferrer was murdered because ho
was considered dangerous to the State and
the Catholic Church. He characterized th«
King of Spain as a royal murderer, who was
to-day cowering before his conscience In
fear of death.

Spain the foulest biots on the earth. Berk

claimed Ferrer the greatest of anarchists,
who had lighted the spark of humanity
which would set the world afire against the
Church, and governments.
She added that tha shots aimed at Ferrer
had been aimed at the hearts of all hu
manity, and that it would be years before
the sound of the volley which killed Fer
rer would die from the hearing of the peo
ple of this country.
At the close of tho meeting the red ban
ners were unfurled as the crowds sang
*\L.'lnternationale" and the "Marseillaise."
As they became demonstrative Inspector
Walsh ordered a dozen policemen on tha
stage, and the singers were driven to the
street as quickly as possible.
Miss Goldman declared that the meeting
was the most successful she had attended

and there was no police interference which
