THE RIOT AT THE
-TpHE RIOTING at the Crane plant may be explained by the
JL circumstance that as a rule the men in this plant are
unorganized and without properly equipped leaders. They are
not instructed in the principle of labor's movement for better
conditions. ,
Were they members of a union, under the direction of the
American Federation of Labor, they would have known that no
strike ever gained anything by violence; that one of the methods
"Used to break strike, if the employers are unscrupulous, is. to
encourage violence, even to the point of distributing private
agents among the crowd, to incite it
Surrounded as they were the. police were doubtless justified
in their attempt to disperse the crowd, but it is probable a lit
'tle more tact on their part would have avoided the disgraceful
exhibition, which following the clubbing of one of the strikers,
i under conditions that seem not very clear.
Justice, in the cases of 'Mokowski and Shurenski, seems io
nave pursued, a swift course not usually attained 'in Bridgeport.
Very much more serious offenders have been presented in
i City Court wife beaters, slayers, burglars and felons of all
classes. ' '. . , ' .'
The law h.as consumed not fifteen minutes, but weeks or
tmonths in passing upon them, and there hks- usually been no
; lack of counsel to defend them when they were tried.
Moskowski seems ,to have been unattended for four hours,
i ormorey with-;a "deep-' and dangerous gash in his head. No of
I fense'hT'conVmftTed1 could have condoned such neglect.
.Were, he an enemy wounded in battle, -did facilities per
Imit, he would receive prompter attention from the foe who cap
tured him. . ' k
The Farmer understands how difficult the position of the
? police is." It understands the irritation that must grow out of a
situation like the present. But The Farmer understands, also,
ffrom an abundant. knowledge and experience, how much better
j it will be. if Bridgeport can go on in the amicable way without
rioting, without violence, without the militia, without: armed
I guards and without the intervention of Federal authority.
A little more effort by the. leaders of the labor movement,
'a little more patience on the part of employers, a little more
j diplomacy on the part of the police, and the thing will be ac-
complished. , " : .' "
' -Tothe men who are oh strike, whether in the Crane Valve
; Company or elsewhere, The Farmer, as the. friend of progress,
and their friend, offers this advice:
; "ia"Shun jyiolence. The man who of f ers it is an enemy of the
i -woTfcers. He may not mean to be, but he is. Nothing is more
fatal to the progress of equitable collective bargaining than the
; interposition of .force. ? ' ; - :
: It is. not the success of the strike alone that is involved,
; hut the whole process, of production. A city whose workers are
; aflame, over the spilled blood and the wounded bodies of fel-
1 low workers, cannot produce its best results. Under such con
i ditloas industry falteis, production is decreased, a fever of revo-li-palsi
all. pursuits. There must be no more violence.
NEEOLESS PRECAUTIONS

tundnly fatiguing tasks as knowing something about something,

been as well-established as it is 'today. Its progress has not been
spectacular, but it has been gradual and even, so even that it
has net attracted the publicity which it deserves. Unfortunately, it is im-
; possible to tbse this statement upon statistics, for at this season no statistics
Are available, but the most conservatve estimates prove conclusively that
-there has been a jrreat and remarkahle growth in Industrial circles.
TJsOztg the 1912 figures as a basis anad granting that, they hold true for
the first six months of last year, it Is found that at that time about 18,500
men were employed in skilled labor in Hartford factories. Today, there

possibility of the removal of the boats
from this country to the possession of

ranged that when the boats are com
pleted they will be sent to the Boston

Germany and Russia Were
Allies Only 43 Years Ago
Although the Germans now identify
Russia with "TJnkultur" and speak of
Russian "barbarism" and the Musco
vite "peril," the strong race antipathy
of German and Slav is of compara
tively recent origin. Bismarck held
to the last that Germany and Russia
were natural allies, and he worked
unceasingly to effect an alliance be
tween the two empires. For a time
the Iron Chancellor was successful,
and the league of the Three Emper
ors, or the "Dreikaiserbund," was the
result.
'The Dreikaiserbund had its origin
forty-three years today at the imperial
congress held in Berlin. '' Czar Alex
ander II., Francis Joseph of Austria
and William I. engaged in a friend
ly understanding, and, although Bis
marck, declared the meeting to be
an act of friendship, the effect was
an alliance between the three great
powers.
All of the remainder of Europe
viewed with considerable alarm this
powerful combination. The empire
of Germany, built on the ruins of Na
poleon's French empire, had demon
strated in the wars with Austria and
France that she possessed a military
machine terrible in i its efficiency.
Francis Joseph had felt the weight
of Prussian wrath, and desired noth
ing more than peace and the friend
ship of his former enemy.. The Rus
sian Czar was a personal friend of
Emperor William I., and had no desire
to pit the strength of his army against
the armed colossus which towered
over Europe. France, Holland, Bel
gium, Italy and the other smaller
states trembled before the power of
the young- giant of central Europe.
The Dreikaiserbund did not last
long. The first break in the friendly
relations between the Slav and .Teu
ton powers came in 1875, when; Bis
marck was planning another war by
which, he would finally and for all
time crush, the power of France. By
exacting an unprecedented indemnity
from France, the German statesman
believed that he had crippled that
country for many years to come. Un
der the republic, - however, France
soon' regained what she had lost, and
again became a power to be reckon
ed with. ,
Early in 1875 Bismarck sent a .se
cret commission to St. Petersburg to
sound, the Czar on the question of an
other Franco-German war. All that
Germany asked of Russia was that she
promise to remain neutral in the event
that Germany set about the comple
tion of the task of the destruction of
France. The Russian government
fearful that the complete crushing of
France would make Germany su
preme and destroy the balance of
power In Europe, returned an evasive
answer. .
The attitude of Russia saved
France, then just struggling upward
from the ruin into which she had been
plunged by the ambitions of Napo
leon III., and a war which must
have been disastrous for the infant
republic was happily averted.
Throughout the greater part of 1875
the German press and people con
tinued to clamor for another war
against France, for the stamping out
of republican principles in Europe. At
last the British and Russian- govern
ments joined in an appeal to the Ger
man government, and by persuasion,
Induced both, the German Emperor
and . Chancellor to publicly announce
that Germany had no intention of at
tacking France." .
, ,t This incident Drought about a per
iod of strained relations between Ger
many and Russia, but the League of
the Three Emperors remained at least
nominally in effect until 1877, when
Russia went to the aid of the Bui
garians against the Turks. The Drei
keiserbund was then definitely broken
up, and' Bismarck turned his atten
tion to effecting an alliance with
Italy. He had hoped to bring in Italy
as a lesser part of the Dreikaiserbund,
and, when Russian -withdrew from the
alliance,? the Chancellor -wooed Italy
more fervently than before; As a re
sult, the- passing of the Dreikaiser
bund marked the beginning of the
Triple Alliance, which continued In
effect until the beginning of the pres
ent war, when Italy withdrew.

Count Cadorna, Head of
Italian Army, 65 Today
General and Senator. Count Xiuigi
Giovanni Antonio Carlo Giuseppe
Cadorna, the chief of the general staff
of the Italian army and the man upon
whom Italy depends to wrest "Italia
Irredenta" from the Austrians, will
pass,, his sixty-fifth milestone today.
The leader of the armed forces of
King Victor Emmanuel was born at
Pallanza on Sept. 4, 1850. His father,
Kaffaele Cadorna, was a famous sol
dier and authority on military
science, and from his boyhood Lulgi
was trained for the profession of arms.
At the age of ten he entered a Milan
military school. . He : was a lively
youth, and ' often came into conflict
with the college authorities, with the
result that he became unduly fami
lith with the little underground cell
where naughty boys were consigned
and given leisure to repent of their
sins. In 1865' he entered the Italian
military academy at Turin, and on his
eighteenth birthday, just forty-seven
years ago today, he became a full
fledged soldier with the rank of second
lieutenant. He served in both the ar
tillery and the Infantry. "When his
father, General Raffaele Cadorna, led
the army which marched on Rome,
Lieut. Luigi accompanied him on that
memorable expedition, which resulted
in the capture of the Eternal City,
which thenceforth became the capital
Of united Italy. The elder Cadorna
thus became one of. the foremost of
Italian military heroes, and it is the
hope of Italians that the son will com
plete the great work by conquering
that part of Italy which is still un
redeemed. The future Chief of Staff
of the Italian army early attained
fame as a' military expert, and by the
time he was twenty-five he was the
author of several pamphlets on mili
tary geography. In 1883, with the
rank of major, he was attached to the
army corps commanded by the bril
liant Count Pianell. He was sent on
many expeditions to the frontiers, of
which he made a close study. It has
been said that General Cadorna knows
the location of every house and tree
In the neighborhood of the Austro-
Italian frontier, and, while this is
probably an exaggeration, his knowl
edge of that district is little less than
uncanny. Cadorna reached the rank
of major general in 1898. He became
chief of the Italian general staff last
year, and immediately set - about a
thorough reorganization of the army
which is said to have been in a condi
tion of confusion and chaos.

COL. DESCLAUX
Perhaps the most direct disgrace
which has befallen any officer in the
present war is that which involved the
degradation and imprisonment of Col.
Francis Desclaux, whose name in
France has become a synonym for the
lowest iniquity. During the early part
of the war Col. Desclaux was paymas
ter general of the French army, and
was highly honored in military circles
as a man who with a most brilliant
future. Cupidity and the wiles of a
siren brought about his downfall, and
last March he was sentenced by a
military court-martial to seven years'
solitary confinement after being con
victed on the charge of stealing mili
tary stores. A short time ago he was
taken from his lonely cell to be pub
licly degraded, and, when this terrible
ceremony -tras Over, was led back to
the cell which is to be his home for
several years to come. Col. Desclaux
was a favorite among his comrades
prior to the scandal which involved
him in destruction. He was chief
secretary to Joseph Caillaux when the
latter was Minister of Finance, and
had held other important posts before
becoming paymaster general. It was
charged that he had stolen large quan
tities of j military supplies, which he
had sent to the house of his sweet
heart and confederate, Mme. Beschoff
David, a fashionable dressmaker of
Paris whose establishment was found
to have been secretly financed by Ger
mans. The trial was a cause celebre
because of the military prominence
and political connections of the ac
cused officer and the fame of the
dressmaker. Both were found guilty,
and the woman was sentenced to two
years in prison. More than a ton of
food supplies intended for the soldiers
were found in the house of the dress
maker. A domestic employed by the
dressmaker, having spied upon her
mistress, reported the matter to the
police.'
LOAFING IN COLLEGE
Dr. T. M. Ealliet, dean of the peda
gogy school of New York University,
told the' National Education Associa
tion a few days ago that present day
college terms are "four years of loaf
ing." This agrees with an article by
a college undergraduate recently print
ed in The Outlook, which says col
lege courses are so easy that students
slip through with little work.
Yet many students, apparently per
fectly truthful, say they have to work
hard to pass tests and- keep out of
conditions. The parent looking for a
good college for his boy or girls feels
puzzled to know which point of view
is correct. .
The bright student may get the
substance of a lesson in en minutes
over which tne duller fellow would
work an hour. By dodging studies
like mathematics and the classic lan
guages, , which call for steady grind,
many long hours are saved.
With ten minutes hurried reading
of a subject like literature, civil gov
ernment, political economy, the stu
dent with ready wit and facile speech
might make a far better showing than
the low tongued grind.
The frequent cases like these indi
cate the fallacy of too many electives.
The educator with scholastic tastes
may think each student is selecting
the course that accords best with his
own needs and gifts. But probably
the majority of students pick the easy
courses.
- A college should not be satisfied
with its work unless careful thought
is given to each -'individual - student.
If he Is slipping along on easy courses
the authorities need to hand out some
real Intellectual wood-pile for him to
saw and split. Few parents send
their boys to school to spend 'their
time with their feet on the piazza rail
of fraternity houses, or eating and
sleeping on the ball ground.
HTJNIADES
The first European general to suc
cessfully oppose the progress of the
Turks in Europe -swas John Corvinus
Huniades, the great Hungarian soldier,
who died at Zemlin on this death, Sept.
4th, in 1456. Huniades was reputed
to be the illegitimate son of Sigis-
mond, emperor of Germany. The
Ottomans, having establish themselves
in Constantinople, set out to conquer
all Europe, and for a time the fierce
Asiatic warriors seemed bent on rea
lizing the ambition of Mohammed II.
"to feed his horse with oats oh the
altar of St, Peter's in Rome." Moham
med H. conquered a large part of the
Balkans and then undertook the sub
jugation of Hungary and Austria- In
1442 Huniades won his first great vic
tories over the Turks, and forced them
to declare a truce. This was broken
by King Ladislas of Hungary, at the
instigation of the Pope, and the King
was defeated and killed. Huniades
then became regent, and in 1456,
shortly before his death, he defeated
and hurled back the Moslems from
the walls of Belgrade, raising the
siege and saving western Europe from
the threatened Moslem peril.

Parade of Chalmers
Cars Makes Gasoline
Row Sit Up and Look
Broadway, the, blase,, the sophisti
cated, is not in the habit of paying at
tention to anything ordinary in the
shape of parades or processions,, but
yesterday the extraordinary happened.
Down New York's gasoline row yes
terday, and over its other prominent
avenues, there wended its way a
stream of automobiles that made New
Yorkers gasp with admiration. The
procession consisted of 125 brand-new,
handsome, snappy Chalmers Six-40
Cars. No wonder New York looked!
$170,000 of automobiles in a few blocks.
The movie men, with their usual en
terprise, were on the Job, too.
These machine I were part of a ship
ment of 226 Chalmers Six-40's. It took
76 freight cars, in two trains, to bring
this shipment from Detroit to New
York. Tt was the largest single ship
ment of high-grade motor oars that
ever came into New York.
The drivers of these cars were Chal
mers dealers and owners, who couldn't
wait for the ordinary freight delivery,
from many, cities near New York.
Among those present "with bells on"
was Ralph W. Barnes, the local Chal
mers dealer.
After tha drive around the city, the
entire string of cars crossed the
Queensborough bridge and ran dawn

Mr. Barnes in talking with his fellow
Chalmers dealers learned that nearly
every one is ahead of his previous sales
record. In spite of the fact, that the
factory is working overtime, orders are
ahead' of production. In this connec
tion, it is interesting to note, that the
Chalmers folks have sold as many cars
since July as they sold in six months
of last year. This speaks volumes for
the outlook in general, r
The garage of Harry H. Ford, Strat
ford avenue near Pembroke street, was
looted of a quantity of Goodrich tires
and inner tubes to the value of $50 last
night. Entrance was gained by forc
ing a rear window.
