WOMEN'S WAGES HERE. rii?' plan of the Chicago employer? to raise tin- wages of their low paid women workers shows what may be expo-ted from tii?' minimum wage in vestigntion here, a bill providing for which has just been signed by Gov? ernor Bolster. The employers of Chi? cggo now kn?iu the conditions ander wliirii their girl employes lire. They ih. feel the force of publk opinion. They Ikwisli t?i nli\iat.' slate iiitiiMi t0 itu pfprove The condition uf th?' wi.ini'ii r workers. There Is do reason why. if facts ere disclosed here like thfste brought out in Chicago, employers here will nol be as quick as those in the Western city to nviiunize their responsibilities. The lnv,?-Ti<r:it?<?ti which this state lias ju<t ?gjtiered will put New York employers in possession of the facts, and it will put the pui'iii- in possession of the finds. The ?ity will kn?i\v bow moch of the temptation t<> which working jrirls are egposed h doe to inad?quat? wages. Those who pretend that it is an in? sult to the womsohood of the female workers to suggest that some of them fall through econosok pressure ar.? Using this pn-tci.as a rioak for their rea! motive In oppoaing sn inquiry. Their real motive is t?? prevent the truth from ??'?mine out at all hazards. Their real eoneern is the defence of low wgges. So far ns tin- iiiflm'in?' i if ?rages of vice enters int<? tins ?-omine inquiry, the pagrpaae of the state is t<> tind oot whether "i not BOffle working r_'irls aro starve?l intri e\ll coOTSes, and it Ig gOlllg lO find this out in spite of the hypocrisy shoot prineipies ?>f tnorallty and the i-haracter ?if working Women ihnt Is being Indulged in by oovort defenders of the existing system of underpayment. The Wagner commission has shown sanity anil ability. It will condtlCl this new inquiry well. HARNESSING THE RIVERS.

He was g statesman ahead of the tiroes. Probably be "..uld have remained ahead ol' tbem for many more sessions of Congress had not the Booth In the Ohir? Valley suddenly brought out with drnmati?' vividness the need of some large measure of co-operation between the federal government and the gtgtca for the control as well as the utiliza? tion of waterways subjeet to ravaging floods. When Mr. Newlands introduces his waterway commission scheme in the new Congress he will be listened to gg a man who foresaw dangers to Which mc-nt of bis gggocsstsg retnalned blind.
