usual procedure where bills have been de

TAFT HELPS LABOR,— By the simple
art. of instructing the Commissioner <■'
Labor to conduct an Investigation of. the
labor conditions in th« Bethlehem 'steel
works President Taft won for a number of
laboring men, estimated at seventeen thou
sand, their Sunday rest. And it was purely
the moral effect ..f the < President* order
which achieved this important end, as has
hitherto been suggested, but as is now sus
ceptible of demonstration. On March 17 the
Cornml-sioner of I^abor began his investi
gation. On March -1 Judge K. H. Gary
sent an identic telegram to the presidents
of the subsidiary companies of the steel
corporation urging respect fur a resolution
deprecating Sunday work which had been
adopted by the Jinance committee of the
corporation in IPO7. and referring to the fact
that Mr. Corey had written them on the
subject 'within a day or two." in other
•words, just as soon as it became known that
the President had ordered the investigation
Mr. Corey instructed the presidents of the
subsidiary companies to stop Sunday work
wherever possible, and "within a day or
two" thereafter Judge Gary discovered the
resolution adopted two years before—appar
ently for some purpose other than to "be ob
j#rv^d—and immediately telegraphed his
subordinates to respect its provisions. How
much further reaching the moral effect of
the President's order for an investigation
■would have been had he not deemed it ad
visable to forbid publication of his purpose
is, of course, a matter of conjecture. That
it would have been productive of greater
rood, alarming the heads of other indus
tries which show little consideration for
their employes, is, however, reasonable as
not at fen serious study to the subject real
ire the influence of publicity on the rela
tions of large employers and their em
ployes. Some definite knowledge of the heat
with which President Schwab of the Beth
lehem company ■ protested against the pub
lication of the government's, report on the
conditions in hi. plant would throw a strik
ing iijrht on the subject. • Mr. Schwab was
unable to point out any incorrect state
ments? in the report, but that did not miti
gate his anger— possibly it aggravated it.
The Tact is that there are few laws which
can be Invoked to protect, the laboring
man. aiid in a majority of instances only
the moral influence of an enlightened pub
lic sentiment stands between him and, in
some cases the conscienceless greed of
the corporation for which he works; in
others, the thoughtless ambition of his more
immediate superiors to win credit with their
principals by means of a constantly in
creasing balance on the credit side of the
ledger. When ,i strike actually occurs the
« mployer usually enjoys the advantage of
superior intelligence in the handling of the
publicity end of the situation, and. more
over, there are usually to be found in the
tanks of every band of strikers some reck
less characters who commit deeds of vio
l-nee which not only Incur the proper cen
sure of all law-abiding people, hut which,
because they make "good copy," are her
alded to the world with Immeasurably more
circumstantiality than can be the abuses
which occasion the strike.
CAUSES OF STRIKES.— The records of
the -Hureau of Labor reveal that it is sel
dom that the public is informed as to the
rcai ejyiFe of a labor strike. The immedi
ate occasion is given wide publicity, but
the conditions which have led to that oc
casion and which' constitute the actual
cause are seldom accurately portrayed,
even if they are described at all. Take the
case of the Bethlehem strike. The immedi
ate and widely published occasion was the
discharge of three men who had made de
mands on- the company on behalf of their
fellow workmen. Tire actual cause was
overwork. For Instance, of the total num
ber of men on the January payroll 2,322
worked regularly - twelve hours a day for
seven days ■.< week, while 2,233 worked regu
larly twelve hours a day for six da ys a
week? Among- the seven-day workers there
were seventy-nine who worked thirteen
hours and ten minutes on each o/ the seven
days of the week. Of course, there are
some processes in the steel industry which
are necessarily continuous, and in these
i Sunday work is unavoidable, but by the
but their number has been greatly lessened
recently by the difficulty of securing sites
accessible to the city where camping is not
prohibited, because the water? of adjoin
ing lakes* arC controlled by water com
panies. Social workers in congested city
districts have "been hoping that some day
a great municipal camp might be secured,
so regulated and protected that people from
the tenement house districts could find a
place for rest and recuperation."

Gaynor Takes a Hand and Writes to

Senator IJayne. ho introduced «»t Albany

ising in«» issue of $2.5<»,000 in fifty-year

of the measure to set the required majority
in the Senate and asking that it lv« brought
up a^ain, according to a. statement issued
yesterday by the Palisade Interstate Park
Commission. . ■■
The bill will come up for reconsideration
to-night. Mm it is expected that of the
fourteen Republicans and one Democrat
who voted against it a sufficient number
will change their vot^s and bring about the
passage of the bill.

A NON-UNION STRIKE.— One of tti<3
curious features of the Bethlehem strike
mi that it was a non-union affair. None
of the employes was a. member of a union
or -labor organization, a fact which, per
haps. rendered them less able intelligently
to present the cause of their grievances to
their employers. But Commissioner. Xeill
found another cause of the strike in the
system of bonuses paid by the company for
,fast work. The bonuses obviously stimulat
ed "speeding: up" On the part of workmen
anxious to make the highest possible wage,
but such speeding up made the Sunday, or
seventh day, rest even more, important, an
otherwise the baneful effect on the hey
and temper of the men was most serious.
Nor was the compensation of. the men who
put in these long hours anywhere near the
standard which Americans Hk:> to believ
obtains in the protected industries of this
country. A large number of laborers work
ing: twelve hours a day. iMMg days in the
week received only 12 '/a cents an hour.
More than 28 per cent received less than 11
cent an hour, and more than 61 per cent
w,e r p paid less than IS cents an hour. Orig
inally the men' made no demand for in
creased pay. although it is hardly likely
that the wage scale contributed to their
contentment or minimized their dissatisfac
tion with their Ion? hours. Later on, dur
ing the strike, the men demanded time-and
a-half pay for overtime. . work and double
pay for Sunday work, although they de
clare that this demand was made not to
gain increased remuneration, but to put a
check on overtime and Sunday work.
leaders in Congress assert that had the
facts regarding labor conditions in the
Bethlehem work? been brought to the at
tention of Congress when the tariff bill was
under consideration it would have been
much more difficult to secure the amount
of protection afforded the steel industry by
the Payne law. The chief, contention of
those who came before the committees of
Congress and urged a continuance of the
high duties on steel -and steel products was
that they were compelled to pay higher
wages than their foreign competitors.' In
view of the showing at the Bethlehem
works, however, there is BOtai skepticism
regarding that contention. If Congress
grants the appropriation President Taft has
asked for the use of the Tariff Board one
of the subjects which will be carefully in
vestigated will be the cost of steel produc
tion abroad, Including the wages paid and
the relative producing capacity of the
American and the foreign- workman. An
drew Carnegie, it will be recalled, declared
that the day had passed when the steel in
dustry required any protection whatever,
and his declaration aroused no small degree
of suspicion regarding the necessity of the
measure of protection now afforded that in
dustry. With evidence resulting from the
recent investigation of labor commissions
tending to show that the Steel. Corporation
doesn't make any attempt to share with its
workmen the increased profits insured to it
by tl>e tariff there is increasing opposition
to the present duties, and it is quite pos
sible that one of the first concrete efforts
to lower the tariff will be directed at the
steel schedule.
MAKE JUDGES WORK.— judicial ex
perience of President Taft has resulted in
the enactment of a law in the Philippines
which constitutes so serious a joke on the
judiciary of the islands that few of them
can be found who can perceive the humor
of the situation. At the instance of Mr.
Taft there has been adopted a statute
which requires that judges about to take
their annual vacations must certify that
all cases which have been before them for
ninety days or more have been disposed, of
before they can draw their pay. -This stat
ute has occasioned some vigorous protests"
from the learned jurists on the Philippine
bench who, under the influence of a tropi
cal sun and a general indisposition to hus
tle, have found the time for their leave at
hand and the "dockets still far from clear.
Such a protest recently arrived at the Bu
reau of Insular Affairs and v.;l- brought to
the attention of the President by General
Edwards, chief of that bureau, but if Gen
eral Edwards flashed under the Pacific the
comment of the Executive it is a safe as
sumption that the island jurist will not
protest again. G. G. If.
I Red Underclothes Not a Success
in Philippines. :':,'.:'.
i Washington. May 22.— Fantastic theories
; regarding the use of colored underclothing
\ to repel th* heat in the tropics have been
dispelled by a report made by the army
toard for the .study of tropical diseases In
the Philippine?. . About eighteen month?
ago five thousand suits of orang<- red un
derclothes and a corresponding: number of
orange red hatbands were Pent to the- Phil
ippine*. These were distributed fo that
1 one-half of a company should be clad in
i the new garments and tll<? other in , the
ordinary whit* underclothes..
Th«» army surgeons kept close: watch on
th» men. but they failed to find that th*
i colored underclothes brought any relief
from the tropical heat, although British
army officers in India had reported that
such clothing was much more comfort
able In hot weather than white.
The medical board finds that the colored
underclothing, which, by th« way, was un
popular, added materially to the burden of
heat on The system. I' was admitted that
i the. orange red i? a protection against the
chemical rays of the fun, but the same re
. suit is obtained by the khaki and the, tan
colored campaign hat of the American sol-

greatest tare, frequent records being- mad 15
of blood pressure, of loss of weight and of

System Hauls 300,000,000 Pas.
sengers and Only One Is Killed.
Figures given out yesterday by the Penn
sylvania Railroad show that in 190S and
1009 Its various lines -carried a total of
299.762.65S 'passengers on its 24.000 miles
of track, and that only one passenger was
killed as a result of a, train wreck.
In 1909 the number of passengers carried
by the Pennsylvania system was 155.0t57,
115. This was an increase of 11.55. per
cent over 1903. The number of passengers
carried one mile on the Pennsylvania sys
tem in 190S and 190$ was 7,170,568,517, so
that for each mile travelled over the system
-the chance of being killed was one in more
than seven billion.. 70 ----
One passenger was killed as a result of
a train wreck in 1909, while none was
kijled in IPOS. In the two years 370 pas
sengers were injured in train wrecks. There
were two fewer passenger accidents and
fifteen fewer freight accidents in 190!) than
in 1908. ■"' ;'- ■?:
The passenger trains on tho Pennsylvania
system in the last two years have travelled
118,407,318 miles. The freight trains oper
ated by the system in the two years hauled
about 125.000.000 miles. V
Passenger traffic on the Long Island
Railroad is exceedingly heavy, owing to its
large commuter, traffic out of New York
City. This road carried 50.709,597 passen
gers in 190S and 1909, and no passenger or
employe was killed in a train wreck.
New Haven Takes First Step to
Offset Fight Against Raise.
The Xew York. New Haven &• Hartford
Railroad Company has served its ansv.er
upon the attorneys for the Mount Vernon
commuters, whose protest against increased
rates of fare is pending before the Public
Service Commission at Albany.
"From the admissions contained in .he
answer,' said Hugh M. Hewson yesterday
one of the attorneys for the commuters,
"it appears that at least one distinct gain
has been made. We have advised the com
muters that the sliding scale contracts con
stituted a yearly contract with the rallrond
company, and that if the commuter per
formed his part of the contract the rail
road company had no right to cancel the
contract- before the expiration of the year
for which the contract was made. On the
railroad's own admission any commuter
may now take out the first month of the
sliding scale arrangement, and the railroad
will hay ■ te carry out Its contract for the
jear at the present rates. The railroad
company expressly concedes this In the an
swer just received.
"The answer sets up nothing new to us:
it raises an issue upon the construction of
the section under which we are proceeding,
hut we have already carefully considered
those particular points, and are now pre
pared to proceed just as soon as the com
mission will set a date for a hearing. This,
we expect, will he net for early this week,
and the entire matter brought to a focus."

A Remarkable New Novel
b v the Author of
Ready at Last
in Book Form
THE WILD OLIVE has the same
remarkable qualities which made
the author's previous novel, The
inner Shrine, the most widely read and
talked-bf book of the year. As a serial
in Harpers Magazine, THE WILL
OLIVE has called forth an unusual
number of letters written in terms of
almost extravagant , praise . and , de
lighted interest. The book, which is*
now ready, contains many diverting
incidents of the story not permitted
within the .exigencies of serial space.
The title is quoted from St. Paul —
"And thou; being a Avild olive-tree"
— an allusion to the heroine's origin,
which places her. a growth of nature
apart | from the cultivated trees of
the orchard— society. THE WILD
OLIVE is a story in a new setting, a
story that seizes the reader from the first chapter— a story of great
vigor and charm. The scene opens in the Adirondack wilderness, with
a fugitive from justice, young and a gentleman, running through the
woods at night. Looking through a cottage window, he recognizes the
judge who condemned him— innocent. A girl's, form-outside beckons
him to follow. The story rushes on. carrying, the .youth into rehabili
tated manhood and the* girt to the height of emotional sacrifice and
triumph. :•'■ "■- *

Rotherham Faction Will Urge
Hudson County Prosecutor.
Representative Fowler Expected
to Clarify Situation in
Morris and Union.
; -I
[From th* Regular Correspondent of Th *
' Tribune. 1 •
Trenton, K. J., May 22.— Another nam
was added to the list of candidate's for r> i"
Republican nomination for Governor next
fall when the leaders of the Rotlierham
faction of Hudson County, at a conference
a few days ago, decided to present to the
convention the name of Prosecutor Pierre
P. Garvt-n as the candidate of their follow
ers for the nomination. Thus far. however,
Mr-. Garven has declined to become ■ can
didate. He says he is well satisfied with
his present place, and is not a bit anxious
to change. But the Rotherham follower's,
among whom are many friends of the
Prosecutor, are insistent that lie enter the
contest, and are going to present his name
whether he agrees or not.
There has been little change in the po
litical situation in Hudson. The same three.
factions exist, and each one is now boldly
proclaiming: that it will control a majority
of the 173 delegates which Hudson will
have In the convention. It is going to mean
a warm fight at the primaries, and will re
sult in Hudson's allotment o£ delegates b- -
ing split into three parts, a condition which,
it is pointed out, will make its influence —
and it has more Republicans than any
other county in the state — to that of
a second class county.
Efforts for Unity in Hudson.
With these 173 delegates voting as a unit
Hudson could cut a big figure In the con
vention, and some of the solid members of
the party have <- suggested an agreement
whereby the entire delegation would sup
port some Republican from their own coun
ty. It is possible that the Rotherham and
Dickinson factions could get together, and

Expect Light From Fowler.
If the promised st.tt^nrnt of Representa
tive Charles N t Fowler is anything like its
forecast, it will go a long way toward clari
fying the political situation in Morris and
Union counties, at least so tar as the Con
gressional nomination is concerned. ••uncle
Dan" Voorhe.es, the Republican leader of
Morris, hag been the chief supporter of Mr.
Fowler In the Congress district, and bo
close lias been their friendship that when
a fortnight ago the State Treasurer an
nounced that he would no longer support
Mr. Fowler for renominatfon, there were
many doubting Thomases, who smiled and
said that "Uncle Dan" had made the same
assertion many times Deroi>-, to f«'l
in line for Representative Fowler just before
convention time
But if the reports of Mr. Fowler's coming
letter are true, Mr. Voorhee- is to be the
subject of .1 verbal lashing Vihich will not
put him in. the host of humor.' and inci
dentally leave no do"ulrt as to what his.
course will be with the delogates he wlli"
control in the coming Congressional con
vention. It will mean tha: "Uncle Dan"
and Mr. Fowler have real!;.- come to a part
ing of the ways, and that a Morris County
man will be nominate;! as the hitter's suc
cessor, unless the present . Representative
puts forth herculean efforts to capture a
majority of the delegate?, and this will
mean the building up of a separate machine
in Union and Morris counties.
It in needless to say that any attack by
Mr. Fowler on the State Treasurer will ..<?
hailed with joy by the political followers
of the Kean machine in Union, not because
they want to see him attacked, but because
it will mean that he has 'finally broken
away from Mr. Fowler, something of which
they were in doubt, even afier the State
Treasurer's recent statement.

Pittsburg. May 22. — Declaring that the
jury system Is "rotten" and that he would
never serve on another jury If he could fret
out of it. the Rev. Frank H. Lewis?, pastor
of the First Methodist Episcopal Churc'n.
who served last week on t'". jury which
convicted Dr. F. C Blessing, president of
the Common Council, of bribery, in an in
terview to-night, said: i
"After my experience in the Blessing
case I firmly believe that juries should be
abolished altogether. The whole idea i""
wrong. It might be better la revert to the
old-fashioned way of having a. man tried
by seven judges. The way juries >>re han
dled is net fair to the defendant. To lock a
jury up until it reaches a verdict is coer

decision merely to finish the job."

said he had. Intended to preach on the topi-
"Be sure your sins will find you out.** but
Judge Ford had refused to allow him to
send his bulletin to his cohgresratioh from
