What the managers desire is that
the question at issue should be con

of whom should be thoroughly versed
in the intricacies xf the problems, and
all of whom, excepting those repre
senting especially cither the cmplovers
or the emploved, shall take into due
consideration the rights and needs of
the public. This was good enough for
the locomotive engineers, who prqb-
ablv are regarded more highly by the
public than an other class of mechan
ical workers in the country. And
since the engineers have- accepted their
findings without a question, it ought to
be good enough also for the firemen

On the 12th of June, according!, he

he could neither be safely ignored nor
forced to tight, and the prudent Howe,
abandoning the march, withdrew once

But he did not abandon his project

Jul had come, therefore, and Burgoyne

eighteen thousand men aboard the fleet

Washington was sorely puzzled. He
had taken It for granted that Howe
would go north, and he had gone south:
Howe's tn a manner abandoning Bur
gojne Is so unaccountable." he said,
"that I cannot help casting my ces con
tinually behind me," and he followed
very cautlousl, ready upon the mo
ment to turn back, lest the movement
should prove a feint.
But there w as no mistake. Howe enter

thence b reports of obstructions lrt the
river, went all the long four hundred
miles about the capes of Chesapeake,
and put his army ashore at Elkton for Its
advance upen Philadelphia.

to check Cornwallis on his flank, was

like a blight, upon all the business of

Paterson Is located In New Jersey,
three turns and four comers by auto

of 123,000 people, and a number of whom
contrary to the general Idea, are satis

Paterson waa founded in 1791 at the
suggestion of Alexander Hamilton, for
the purpose of being a great cotton
manufacturing center. Later on It was
promoted to silk and now produces

It themselves. They refrain with re
markable firmness from doing so. After

The Stokowskl-Tsaye concert at the

terest since the musical and social Uaders
realize that the combination Is rather
a unique one. In that not only Is Vsae

tras of the country, the Philadelphia
Orchestra, but It will be heard with the
new leader of the Philadelphia Orches
tra, who has made a greater reputation
this year than ever before aa an Inter
preter of the highest rank.
The Philadelphia Orchestra Is now In
Its thirteenth ear. and Is supported by
Phlladelphlana in the most liberal man
rr, so that the personnel of the orches
tra Is unexcelled. Tsae. with the gen
lun that he has. will interpret one of the
oldest concertos for violin and orchestra
ever written The composer was Vlottl,
who wrote this famous composition when
he was In his teens, and It first came to
ii-m m 1TST. With equally artistic In
- -
sight Ysaye contrasts tnis very old num
her with the most sensuous of modern
violin concertos, that of Salnt-Saens. In
B minor. These are some of the features
of the programme that make this coming
concert so attractive.
