NEW HAVEN MORNING JOURNAL AND COURIER, THURSDAY MAT. 3 1906 ENDORSES LABOR ONIONS1 BIRD S, COLLR STRONGLY FA TORS THEM. CalU Them the Great Factor In Modern , Profrrens Aeainxt the 6pen Shop Campaign John Mitchell a Greater Organizer Than J. P. Morgan So cialism Not the Scarecrow It Wa Next Step U Municipal OvrnerHhip. The address of the Hon. Bird S. Coler of New York delivered In Lampson hall last evening under the auspices o the Tale City Government club was an in teresting address on some present eco nomic problems. Mr. Coler was intro duced by W. S. Moorhead, 1906, presi dent of the club. He said in substance: The path of man through history has been, up-grade. Civilization has been slowly but steadily advancing. The " way of our destiny is becoming dimly outlined. We have gone far, though doubUesswwe have yet far to go. The up-itrend is from the bottom of society. Some time ago the very word socialism would be enough to frighten a large part of our American people. Sometime ago workmen were warned against introducing politics into their associations. It is a strange fact that the very people who have done most to maintain the present system in the popular mind were the first to teach the ' pulbllc that competition ia not always better than oo-operation. If it had not been for the selfishness of capitalists there would not to-day be the demand for municipal ownership and control as there is. They have made their religion, the religion of 'Eaer, that God in his wisdom has in . trusted his property to them. This is the old, old principle of the divine right of kings in a new form. They are, of course, brainy men and strong men, but they are absolutely unscrupulous. They are intrenched In both political parties. They can get eminent lawyers to plead for them, eminent engineers to plan for them and eminent reformers to smooth out their difficulties fofthem. They still flaunt the flag of socialism before us, but that scarecrow has out lived its usefulness.' People. do not care ' what ypu call it, they are not afraid of it. , Public control of , public utilities is , the next step. After the recent expos ures In business we cannot believe that public control will increase corruption. . J. Pierpont Morgan has been called the greatest organizer in ' history. (Neither he nor Baer, Belmont, Rocke- feller, nor any of those great capitalists are, In my opinion, equal as organizers to the great labor leader, John Mitch ell. . The law.of supply and demand should not be applied to human beings. Jjabor unions founded on brother hood have done an enormous amount of (good in this country. Where they are Btrongest the standard of living is high est. They have been called law break ers, but tihey have shown more respect for law than the corporations. I am against the open shop and for Iho labor unions, as the true progress ive factor In our life to-day. . , EXPERIMENTS IN DIETING. (Continued from First Page.) proteid were worked out by means of a mechanical diet indicator, devised for this purpose by Professor Fisher. It was found that during the ten (weeks of the experiment the men had decreased their food ten per Cent., had decreased the proteid fifteen per cent., end had decreased ithe consumption of meat and . other flesh foods by forty per cent. All this had taken place in stinctively and without intention on ithe part of the experimenters. In order to test the working power of the men trials of endurance were made at Tale gymnasium with the co operation of Dr. Anderson and Dr. Cal lahan, with such tests as holding out the arms as long as possible, lifting dumb bells of a given weight as many times as possible, "deep knee bending," "leg raising," etc., etc. The same tests were reported at .the end of the experi ment, and it was then found that each of the nine men had improved any where from fifteen to more than 100 per cent., despite .the ..fact that during the experiment there was no practice nor any special physical exercise. The average physical endurance was over fifty per cent. Strength tests were also given but the improvement in endurance was far greater than in strength. For instance, ths men could not lift much more at the end of the experiment than before, but they could repeat a lift within their weight a great many more times. Mental tests were also given In the form of problems in addition, and it was also found that most of the men had increased in men tal quickness. A full account of the experiment will be published soon in one of the peri odicals, In which all the figures will be given. As every precaution was giv en to prevent any disturbing factor to which the improved condition of the men might be ascribed, it is believed Xhat the experiment has demonstrated that it is possible for any person In two and one-half months' time, toy sim ple mastication of the food and follow ing the appetite to improve one's en durance by one-half, and without any sacrifice or denial, but rather with in creased enjoyment of the pleasures of the table. The experiments will be continued in definitely to show that persistence in this practice will bring about even more surprising results for the ordinary person.

These officers were raised to their respective stumps by Joseph Far rar, great Junior sagamore of the Unit ed States, Immediately after the quenching of the council fires. MAIN FORCE OF FRENCH LABOR MOVEMENT SPENT (Continued from First Page.) movement.Another group, singing the "Internationale," encountered a platoon Of police, when some of the strikers drew their revolvers and fired ineffect ual shots. Several carpenters were ar rested for, seeking to interfere with other carpenters who were working in a factory. In the suburs and other factory cen ters there were isolated conflicts be tween strikers and no'n-strikers. At Belleville gendarmes and a platoon of cavalry dispersed strikers who were at tempting to interfere with workers. A band of strikers attempted to enter a cartridge factory at Bruyeres de Sevres for the purpose of inducing workmen to quit, but they were driven off by the police. One sentry at a suburban rail way crossing was fired on by some un known person. The foregoing Indicates an extended and continuous movement without a central or general organization, how ever. Several trades this afternoon met In the laibor exchange and decided to con tinue the strike. The jewelers' reunion heard several orators bitterly assail the action of the police on Tuesday.- A letter received froni the manufacturing Jewelers stated that the demand for an eight hour day virtually amounted to a demand for an increase of 25 per cent, in wages. Thereupon the meeting re solved "that the working jewelers numbering 6,000, decide to continue the strike to the bitter end until complete satisfaction is given to their protest against police brutality, and that the meeting condemns the arrest of unof fending comrade?." Another resolution welcomed the sympathetic action of Lieutenant Tls serand de Lange and appealed to offi cers and soldiers to testify their friend ship for the workingmen. JU PGM I NT AGAINST RIDE Decision In Action of Mary S. Yonng Confirmed. . Albany, May 2 The appellate divi sion of the supreme court, for the third department, to-day handed down a de cision affirming the Interlocutory Judg ment ordered by the special . term against James H. Hyde, in 'the action brought by Mary S. Young, against the Equitable Life Assurance society and the persons who have been directors thereof during the last three years. Mrs. Young, a resident . of Saratoga Springs, brings the action as a policy holder in the Equitalble society, and as the owner of one share of stock, to re cover for all the sums wasted during the three years prior to 1905, it being alleged that such waste occurred either by the affirmative acts of the directors or by their negligence, and Judgment is asked that they be compelled to ac count for the sums thus wasted and restore them to the treasury of the so ciety. Various defendants, Including Hyde, demurred to the complaint, as Insuffi cient, claiming that causes of action were Improperly united; that section 56 of the insurance law (since repealed) prevented the action, except by the at torney general, and on various other grounds. Justice H. T. Kellogg of Plattsburg overruled the demurrer of Hyde, which was taken as a test, and held the complaint good. The decision just handed down, affirms the action of Justice H. T. Kellogg In all re spects. The directors will now be com pelled to join issue on the facts, br al low Judgment to pass against them by lefault. CA LIFOItSIA SENATORS DISSENT. Washington, May 2. That the Cali fornia senators do not consider that there should at present be art effort to secure government aid in the 'general reconstruction of the city of San Fran cihco was made evident in the senate to-day.. This question came up on Mr. Newland's resolution directing the fi nance committee of the senate and the ways and means committee of the house to consider the faasa'bllity of the government's guaranteeing bonds to aid in the rehabilitation of the stricken city. The Nevada senator discussed the resolution at some length, contend ing for the regularity of his suggestion and enlarging upon the desirability of making the city a more attractive cen ter of population than it had ever been. Mr. Flint, and Mr. Perkins deprecated the introduction of the resolution as unwise at this time and both Indicated their opinion that the California dele gation should have been consulted be fore the presentation of the measure. The resolution was referred to the com mittee on finance. Mr. Daniel concluded his speech on the rate bill. The army appropriation bill was read at length, but Its consideration was not concluded. An amendment appropriat ing $1,500,000 for a supply depot at Fort Mason, San Francisco, was ac cepted, as was also a provision author izing a submarine cable to Panama at a cost of ?900,000- Kansas Republicans Nominate. Topeka, Kan., May 2. The Kansas state republican convention to-day nominated a ticket in part as follows: Governor, Edward W. Hock, Marion; lieutenant governor, William J. Fitz gerald, Dodge City; secretary of state, Charles E. Denton, Attica; state audot or. James M. Nation, Erie; state treas urer, Mark Tully, Independence; at torney general, Fred S. Jackson, Greenwood. GRAND AVENUE STORE ENTERED Young Man From New York Sent in in With Goods Taken. Patrick J. Maroney, a young man claiming to be from New York, was ar rested on Grand avenue near State street by Officer Mc Kiernan last night. He was charged with .drunkenness, and that will probably ba changjd to bur glary. A Jewish clothing store at -999 Grand avenue was broke! 'into and a variety of goods taken, which were sint Into headquarters with Maroney. He discalmed their theft, it will proba bly be held for It. CALLED TO DUMP FIRE. A still alarm aftout 11:45 last evening called Company 10 to the dump near the new factory" of the National Fold ing Box and Paper company at James and Lombard streets. Some rubb:s!i from the factory was on fire. There was no damage. DOWNFALL OF RUSSIA'S FOREMOST STATESMAN (ConUnuedfrom&irstPage.) has been the retiring premier's Unle lentlng enemy. At that time the former minister of the interior made a report to the em peror to the effect that the stories of famine and suffering, which were said to exist in certain provinces, were un true. Witte, who was then minister of finance, thereupon produced documents to prove that the conditions In the in terior were as they had been, represent ed to be. When the emperor confront ed M. Goremykln with this he is said to have fallen on his knees before his majesty, to have wept and to have begged for forgiveness. Later M. Gor emykln took part in the VonPlehve ca bal, which drove Witte from the minis try of finance In 1903..' M. Goremykln is considered to 03 a mediocre man of insignificant appear ance as well as capacity. Ho weirs side whiskers and looks like an Eng lish butler. While for some time past he has ibeen called a liberal, it was only in contrast with such men as Von Plehve and M. Sipiagulne, the late in terior minister. He began his catcer in the ministry of Justice, becoming as sistant minister, from which post ho was called In 1895 as a protego of the dowager empress, to become minister of the interior. The student troubles, the forerunners of the recent revolution, were Just then beginning and M. Gor emykln lacked the energy necessary to end them. He was supplanted in 1899 by ML Sipiagiune. Last year wnen In terior Minister Durnovo legislated out of existence the rural commission of which Witte was president, and which had been Investigating the agrarian question several years, M. Goremykln was appointed head of the agricultural commission which supplanted it. When he became premier, Witte retaliated on M. Goremykln by dissolving the ag ricultural commission. The hew pre mier comes from a noble, but not prom inent family of Novrogod province, where his estates are situated. They are especially noted for their dairy products, which are sent to St. Peters burg. In fact M. Goremykln practic ally supplies the capital with milk. What other cafolneet changes are In volved In Count Wltte's retirement have not yet developed. It Is stated positively that M. Goremykln and In terior Minister Durnovo had a falling out recently, and that the latter's con Inuance, in he cabinet is impossible. Count Witte, unquestionably the big gest man In public life here, goes out unwept and unsung, and amid the re joicings of the ractlonists,- who' hate the liberals, and who distrust him. Yet even to-day it is predicted that when the next great crisis comes the emperor will be forced to Summon Wit te from his retirement. OLYMPIC PRIZES GIVEN. (Continued from First Page.) dinner of 400 covers In honor of the for eign delcgatas, the athletes' committee, the judges, the winners, etc. The ta bles were magnificently decorated. King George In a speech expressed the pleasure he felt to see around hint representatives of nearly every nation cultivating gymnastics and athletics. He felt It a great honor, li said, that thoy had hastened to Athens to strive for the palm of victory, and he wished them to declare In his name to all the governments, districts, and associations they represented how happy the whole royal family and the Greek people were at having had them among them In these nevor-to-be-forgotten days, Hop ing a renewal of the pleasure four years hence, he drank the health of all the brave athletes. ' The Olympic games committee pub lished this afternoon, prior to the pres entation of the prizes, a full list of the winners. The Americans took elev en firsts, six seconds and five thirds. There were twenty-nine events, not counting the swimming, in many of which the Americans did not compete. The list of American first follows. It does not include the winning by C. M.

MINERS OUTSPOKEN IN FAVORING STRIKE (Continued from First Page) apolte, and with, the suggestion ihut a strike might be called in the anthracite fields, demanded a large wage increase from the bituminous operators. , The statement concludes: Failing with the -bituminous operators, Mr. Mitchell now made a further effort to obtain his wants from the anthracite operators. His last demand was for a limited wage increase. This Is pre cisely the question which the operators proposed to arbitrate. But a fear that a fair arbitration might not repay the men the union dues which they were so urgently impressed to pay, in order to get more, apparently prevents arbi tration. . "The situation now before the people is a most serious one. Every claim of the miners was duly considered by the coal commission appointed by Presi dent Roosevelt. The position of the operators In 1906 is precisely in accord with the letter and the spirit of the commission's findings. The commission was universally recognized as able and impartial. President Roosevelt, in ap pointing its members, specifically, in structed them to endeavor to establish the relations between the employers and the wage workers in the anthracite fields on a just and permanent bns!s. The operators accept the commission's decision as having permanent effect, except as In so far as subFeiuent ever.ti have possibly modified actual condi tions. These possibilities the operators agreed to submit to the same impartial tribunal." :..' WILL NOV BE TOLERATED. Pennsylvania's fiovernor Issues Proc lamation Iti'KnnHiiR l.nhOr Violence Harrisburg, Pa., May 2- Governor Pennypacker to-day issued a proclama tion In reference to the Industrial dis turbances In Pennsylvania in which he calls upon all citizens to assist in the maintenance of the lawand declares that violence will not be tolerated. The governor In his proclamation calls upon "all citizens by their con duct, example and utterances whether printed or verbal, to assist In the main tenance of the' law," Continuing the proclamation says: "Times of commo tion furnish the test of the capacity of the people for self government. Every man is entitled to, laibor and get. for his labor the highest' compensation he can lawfully secure. There hi no law to compel him to labor unless he so chooses and he may cease to labor, whenever he considers it to be to his Interest so to cease. The laboring man out of whose efforts wealth arises has the sympathy of all disinterested people in his lawful struggle to secure a larger proportion of the. ...profit which results from his labor. What he earns belongs to him and it he Invests his earnings the law protects his property just as the rights of property of all men must be protected. He has no right to Inter, fere with another man who may want to labor. Violence has no place among us and will not.be tolerated. Let all men. In quiet and soberness keep the peace and attend. to their affairs with the knowledge that it Is the purpose of the commonwealth to see that the prin ciples herein outlined are enforced."
