THE FARMER: JANUARY 2, 1909.
THE PEOPLE OF PITTSBURG :J:.; The f irst Publication of a Two Years Study of Industrial, ;Ciyic i and Social Conditions in Pittsburg Begun Today V I i ibirie' Startling . Facts About America's Greatest . industrial Center. (Exclusive Service Charities and The Commons Press Bureau.) . At place where two rivers meet to form the greatest feeder of the Miss issippi, on a narrow point of land shut In hy twisting hills and further cut off from the world by high mountains which blocked her growth and separ ated her from the early influences Which molded, this country, has been built up-by her own devices the busi est arid most virile workshop in the ; world .arid the most characteristically American Community. Starting with EngllshV followed toy Scotch-Irish, and after tfiese layer upon layer of aliens, each further than the last in race and speech and ideals from the descendants of the New England settlers, there has been thrown together a mass of im migrants, each of whom found himself at home In that he had labor to sell In a town which demanded only labor. The one test, whether he were English r German of Czech, whether he came from city or farm or mine, whether he were Catholic or Lutheran, voter or aerf, was, can he work? He could wnric He hurried to it. to find his place before the next wave of brawny Europeans crowded on his heels. But working only, he has created a great half-done community, a lop sided ; city, this capital of a district which has known the tensest labor bat tle of a. generation, which has produc ed the two wealthiest men of our limes, which is given over to a Scotch observance, law for the shop-keeper, And a seven-day working week for the steel mill hand, and which is the fast ness of a ipolitical machine part and larcel of thafat Harrisburg and Phil adelphia. The greatest producing cen ter of, our. age, Pittsburg has lacked pure water to drink, .has lacked even enough houses to shelter her work- 6FS i Butt In the very tangle of these con i Elicting : conditions lies a city which ' sleets a reform mayor, which builds wonderful .libraries and trade schools and shows signs of a civic conscious- ness that, should it get a grip upon the . enthusiasm and efficiency which have been shown in dominating the - steel markets of the world, would : make Pittsburg the pacemaker of mu nicipal achievement. Under "the name of the Pittsburg Survey, Charities Publication Commit tee has carried on a series of investi gations of some of the main elements entering 'into the conditions of Hhe wage-earning population in the Pitts burg district, an investigation in 'which more than twenty trained work ers have participated. - Today, appears the first publication af the findings of these Survey workers " who have investigated the Pittsburg District. It discloses many of the Immigrant working force of the steel towns living In filthy and overcrowded 'buildings. Pittsburg has been a town where half a thousand people died every year from typhoid fever, and yet ; the movement to clear the water sup ply was blocked at every turn; Half - a, thousand workmen are killed every year in the course of industry, and yet. the, public has not taken the trou ble to sift the accidents through to see wh'ch of ithem could be prevented. : Nobody knows how many men are in jured in the course of a year. Nobody knows how many men and women are Fairfield County News. Very Tame Deer. ; It is reported that some New Fair Held farmers have small herds of deer an their farms .which have become so tame, that they have even been ab'e to get near enough to put their hands on them " : He Found Out. rj A New Canaan man. pulled up at a Stamford garage, the other night, and said there was something wrong with his car. It ws suggested that a tire might be punctured, and the man was sure that wasn't the trouble. Upon investigation, it was found that a tire and rim - had been lost, and the car v had been running on three tires and a wheel.. . , ' " Inn For Autoists The establishment of an inn, large ly for the use of automobillsts, is the bject of a Darien company now in 'r-ourse of formation . The plans call , for an expenditure of about $80,000 for site, buildings, furniture and equip ment, i According to report the pro ir.otters have secured an option on property situated on the Post Road, on " the east side of Noroton Bridge, occu rred by what is now known as the Cuick Inn. ... . it Was Fortunate. . The striking down of Miss Mary F. Hackley, of Roway ton, with typhoid fever, in November seemed like a hard blow to Dr. and Mrs. Charles E. Hack ley, for the family was about to pass the winter in Sicily, in the immediate ;"' loqatlon . of the recent earthquake. Litchfield County News. . . Two Cases Settled. ' T-vto of the three cases assigned for trinl before Judge Wheeler in the su perior court at Winsted, Wednesday were settled out of court and the third was continued by agreement of coun sel. The last named case is that of Edward Manchester and the Gilbert Home vs. the borough of Winsted, an action for a permanent Injunction to restrain the borough from cutting dawn large tree which stands in the nrdde of the sidewalk in front of the Man i tester property. Former Tree War den Gallagher was prevented from cut ting it down by a temporary injunc liou. The tree was badly burned dur i ig'xthe fire which destroyed the Odd Fellows' and Manchester buildings sev sral , months ago and it is not known whether it will live or not. Thomas F. Hannafin and Howard B. Deming set tled thelf case satisfactorily and the case of the Dunston Lithograph'ng Company vs. Noble Bennett of the New Milford Canning Company, an action to recover a bill for lithographing, was sett'fd by counsel agreeing that the plaintiff receive $1,082.28. and costs. ; Unwelcome Christmas Present. Amelia and Adam Lankowskl were, married in Poland twenty-seven years ago. Ten years ago he came to th"s country with his daughter and locat ed in Torrington. About a year ago she was married to Frank Jankowski. At. the same time her father went to live in the home of Mrs. William Urban in Harwinton. and it is said, appeared to have forgot that he had a wife in the old country. The daughter com municated her suspicions to her moth er who arrived in Torrington on Christ mas Day and presented herself at the Urban home. Her husband, she al leges, threw her out of the houee and she has retained a lawyer to bring action against him. Found Dead in Bed. v Eml! Louis Laidle, of Torrington, aged 49, was found dead in bed Wed nesday morning at his home. Medicai Examiner Hanchette stated that death was due to heart disease. - ' Woman's College Club. The fourth annual luncheon of the Woman's College Club of Litchfield County was held at WinsLed, Wednes . beset with trade diseases. Nobody knows how much the community is paying for these wastes. The esti mates of the Survey go to show that the numbers and costs are stupendous. A myriad of one family dwellings turned into congested tenements, men and women working over-time in un sanitary shops, an entire lack of ade quate factory inspection by the State these are some of the findings of the Survey. They are in contrast to the standards set by certain of the more progressive employers of the district. The town is not unprepared to make use of these facts as part of a new and aggressive movement for civic re form which is taking head throughout the district. The city last year open ed a five, and a half million dollar filtration plant, which has cleared the water; a typhoid fever commission is studying other sources of disease; a tenement house census has been made carried out by the Bureau of Health; and a Civic Improvement Commission has just been appointed, broader in scope than any yet known In an Amer ican city. The director of the Suivey, Paul U. Kellogg, says that "It must be borne in mind that much that is said of Pittsburg is true of practically all our industrial centers ; our severest criti cism of any one comes not from a comparison with its fellows, but from a comparison of haphazard develop ment of its social institutions with the splendid organic development of its in dustrial enterprises. And more. In the methods and scope of progressive business organizations we have some of the most suggestive clues' as to ways of, municipal progress." His argument is "that if the civic responsibilities of democracy in an in- dustrial district are to be met, the community should do what a nrst-raie i industrial concern would do, figure out the ground it can cover effectively and gear its social machinery to so cover it. By social machinery I mean hos pitals and schools and courts and city departments, and all hat wide range of activities that have a direct bearing on the living conditions of a people. Second, to hold these agencies as close ly accountable as are enterprises in the business world; and to bring them to the ultimate touchstone of their ef fect on the welfare of the average citi zen. Unless a wage earning popula tion. Is so insured against disease, its vigor and effectiveness so conserved, the community is not meeting its re sponsibilities toward the industries which must depend upon these work ers for out-put and profit. In turn, the public should see to it that - the industries do not cripple or exploit the working force which constitutes the great asset of the community. And further, if such a program is to be carried out in an American and demo cratic way, the workers themselves must have greater lee-way and leis ure in which to bear teir share of the burdens and responsibilities of Ameri can democracy." Among those who have taken part in the work of the Survey, have been Professor John R. Commons, of the University of Wisconsin; Robert A. Woods, Headworker, South End House, Boston; Florence Kelley, Secretary National Consumers' League; Law rence Velller. former First Deputy Tenement House Commissioner, New York; and Frank E. Wing, Secretary of the Chicago Tuberculosis Institute. day afternoon, a large number being present. The following officers were elected for the coming year: President, Mrs. Edward P. Jones, Vassar; vice president. Mrs. John M. Wadhams. Mt. Holyoke: secretary. Miss Edith Alvord. Vassar; treasurer. Mrs. John B. Lyon, Vassar. Although the Woman's Col lege Club has been in existence but five years, it already has a membership of eighty, and every town in the county is represented. . Dyspepsia is America's curse. Bur dock Blood Bitters conquers dyepepsia every time. It drives out impurities, tones the stemach, restores perfect digestion, normal weight, and good health. 2 4 6 THE AUTOMOULE WORLD New York city has more automo biles run at the public expense than any other two cities in the world. The Police Commissioners of Bur lington, Vt., are investigating differ ent gasoline police patrol automobiles. The Indianapolis Board of Public Health ' and Charities has asked for bids for an automobile ambulance to cost not more than $2,500. Avoid overloading your car. Tires will not stand up under a greater strain than they are designed to carry. Never try experiments with the lu brication of a disc clutch; keep to the brand of oil recommend'ed by the mak ers. As a result of the recent rise in stocks and bonds. Wall Street brokers are reported to be again investing heavily in motor cars. A company has been formed at Grand Rapids. Mich., with $40,000 cap italization, to produce and market a self-starting device. The Touring ,Club of France is or ganizing an automobile sleigh contest, which will be open to all, and will take place at Monestier-de-Clermont (Isere), January 24th. ' There are various preparations used to preserve bright brass surfaces in winter, such as radiators, lamps, lev ers, etc., but the cheapest is common slab oil. Do not round curves at too great a speed. It is playing with fate to at tempt to round corners on two tires besides it is bad for the tires them selves. After operating 40 horse-drawn ve hicles for 16 years, a Chicago livery man has announced his intention of disposing of horses In favor of taxi cabs. t It is estimated that the eight auto mobile factories of Detroit will turn out 50,000 cars during 1908, which, at an average value of $2,000 per car, will amount,; to $100,000,000. Two steam cars are to be used by Chief Horton, of the Baltimore Fire Department, and his. deputy, for re sponding to alarms. Richmond, Va has ordered a motor patrol wagon. A Chicago motorist finds that there is a very marked tendency on the part of village blacksmiths to take up the ! business of making repairs to automo biles. "Garage and horseshoeing is a sign he encountered. Theatrical companies have now taken to the automobile to economize on transportation bills. Trunks, scenery and stasre hands travel by rail, but the "stars" travel from city to city "en motor." Confident that he will be able to solve the problems of the economical use of gasoline for railroad motive power, E. H." Harriman will shortly ! spend a small fortune in experiments at Omaha, Neb. It is. estimated by Savannah Auto mobile Club officials that, the profits on the recent Qand Prize race will amount to $150,000. when all the re turns have been made. The funds will be used for advertising the city. - : : 1 Undertakers and Embalmer. No. t68 State St., Bridgeport. Ct. AH cmIIs. day or nleht an swered from office. Geo. B.
