. -To. Publish Diaries.
Some -doubt has been cast jpon the
published extracts from diaries found
on German soldiers. It is not generally
known that there exists a stipulation
la .the- German army service regula
tions (clause 73) which recommends that
soldiers shall keep diaries. The French
government Is about to publish a work
consisting of extracts from dlarica found
on German soldiers. There aro to be
iee-atmll reproductions and explana

The breads produced are being anal

Chairman of Vacation Committee Gives Idea of Un
employment Situation Young Women Do Not
Want Good Positions Away From Metropolis.
NEW YORK, Feb. 22. Like a javelin thrust there comes out
of the smoke of conflicting ideas on the subject of unemployment
and the unemployed a series of definite opinions, backed up by actual
facts, from Miss Gertrude Robinson Smith, the chairman of the vaca
tion committee of New York.
Miss Smith yesterday gave utterance to her views on the un
employment situation.
"As with everything else," she began, 'Jthere are two sides to
unemployment. Everybody has a general idea that conditions are
terrible, but there are probably fewdr than a baker's dozen in all this
big city who know just how bad they are and what are the chances
of their getting better. ,
"One swath at least has been cut
through the Jungle by war relief ac
tivities of the vacation committee.
Since October we have been maintain
ing workrooms where girls thrown out
or employment oy me war nave own
kept busy and paid what we call a
'tide-over wage. As Its name would
Imply, this pay simply is to help the
girls over this crisis until they can
get regular Jobs again.
"Out of all the other facts we dis
covered, as we opened one workroom
after another, was the dismal fact that
an amaslng number of the girls were
horribly Inefficient.
"At first we went ahead putting
stenographers In the sewing rooms, re
gardless of their chosen line of work.
They had to do something, .you see.
Naturally, the work was hot ddne with
the greatest amount of speed or dex
terity. Aim For Efficiency.
"It dawned on us one day about a
month ago, all of a sudden, when sev
eral of the vacaton committee were
lunching together that It would be doing
the greatest possible good to the great
est number of people If wo should help
the girl who was a stenographer, for
Instance, to become a better stenog
rapher. If she had learned sewing, w
thought, how much more efficient It
would be If we could teach her ho.w to
sew a stralghter seam than ahe had
ever sewed beforo In her life.
"We started a class with a member
ship of over 160 girls In the clerical de
partment, and a dressmaker's section,
held In the Manhattan Trade School,
with mora than fifty girls. Six teachers,
assigned by the board of education from
the Julia Richmond High 'School, havo
the clerical work In charge.
"Miss Florence Marshall, another
board of education teacher, has charge
of the sewing girls In the Manhattan
Trade School. Every day we send more
girls to the 3 classes.
"We have a special fund for paying
these girls while they are getting this
extra training. Besides, the technical
training they receive, the girls are given
kindly little talks by the teachers on
office etiquette, on how to dress neatly,
on how to fix their hair otherwise than
In those hideous sausages so many of
them adore, and even on how to keep
their Angers and nails looking well.
"When these girls emerge from this
training, they will be fitted for Jobs bet
ter than those they left.
"That, as I see ft. Is one side of the
unemployment situation which looks
mighty cheerful.
"But there Is the other side, too. We
now employ In our eight workrooms
where the girls mako war relief supplies
over 400 girls.
"Dally dozens and dozens of girls ap
ply for work. We haven't room enough
for all who come to us.
"What Is the point I want to make?
Simply this. That In numberless cases
It Is the girl's own fault If she has not
got a good Job. r
"Take the case of Just one manufac
turer. He tells us that ho has an order
on hand for 6,000,0(0 uniforms for one
of the warring countries. His factory
Is In New Jersey, less than two hours'
Journey from New York. He wants
girls to help out on this rush ordor.
He is willing to pay them from 112 a
week up.
"The lamentable fact now comes.
We have told our girts about this
and urged them to go having the
manufacturer's promise to find them
good, respectable homes. Do they go"?
They do not. They say quite frankly
they prefer to stay In New York and
run the risk of starvation.
Three Girls Quit.
"Three girls ventured to take our
advice and they went to another Jer
sey town, where they were comfort
ably housed, well paid and had very
fine hours. They came back to New
York at the end of the third day. And
that's the other side of the unemploy
ment question.
"Another fund that we have Is call
ed the 'meat fund.' It Is used to buy
meal tickets In our vacation restaur
ant for girls who come to us to tell us
thel: troubles and who are so hungry
and weak that they actually couldn't
tell their stories straight if they
wanted to.
"If we had resources enough wc
could make a great big dent In this
unemployment bump, let me tell you."

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 22. Mrs.

Factions in Dublin Clash on
Question of Converting
Noted Castle.
DUBLIN, Feb. 22.-A small political
and social clique In Dublin is trying to
prevent the state apartments of Dublin
Castle from being converted into a
temporary Red Cross hospital, astutely
organized as a counterblast to the na
tional movement for the retention of
Lord Aberdeen as lord lieutenant until
the home rule act has come into force.
Dublin being a comparatively poor
city, with a large alum population,
there Is a constant demand on the hos
pital accommodation. Despite this,
practically every hospital In the city
agreed to set apart ono or two special
wards for the treatment of wounded
soldiers. These wards, with the con
valescent homes available In and near
the city, will accommodate BOO men.
Although these wards have not yet
been fully occupied, stories were circu
lated that Dublin was shirking Its
duty, so in order to remove any
grounds for the charge the city of Dub
lin branch of the British Red Cross so
ciety, acting fan the suggestion of cer
tain leading Dublin physicians, decided
to erect a wooden hospital In Phoenix
Park for 600 soldiers. Tho Countess of
Aberdeen is president of this branch.
The unionist women, who are work
ing .In the Dublin county branch, de
clined to co-operate with the countees
-in this work. They said the expense
would be too great, and suggested that
several vacant buildings In the city
could be converted into temporary hos
pitals with little outlay. A later charge
was that the rooms of the castle (good
enough for a royal residence In 1911)
are insanitary.
Eminent physicians, surgeons, and
sanitary experts pronounced the apart
ments suitable for a hospital, and the
scheme was put before a representative
meeting of Dublin citizens, who under
took to equip 360 beds at 150 each, and
provide the cost of staff and maintain
ance. A number of unionists were nomi
nated on tho committee of manage
ment, but practically all declined to act
and since then every effort has been
made to wreck tho project, although
tho scheme has the approval and finan
cial support of the King and Queen and
Queen Alexandra.

Conferees to Meet Again To
day, But Adjustment It Not
Conferees on the District bill will meet
again today and endeavor to thresh .out
the differences between the Senate and
House over the bill.
The conferees held a session Saturday.
Senator Smith of Maryland hopes to be
able to make a report In a short time.
However, the differences between the
Senato and House over the half-and-half
question are nowhere near adjust
ment. A disagreement on this question
probably will bo reported, and then an
attempt Is likely to be made to Instruct
the conferees to provide for an Investi
gation of the flsca relations of the Dis
trict and the General Government and
a report to Congress next regular ses
sion. The conferees have agreed to an Im
portant amendment to make the Dis
trict Board of Education anawerablo to
the Commissioners. The amendment
takes from tho District Supreme Court
the power of appointing the members
of the school board and places the
power with the Commissioners.
It is believed the Change will be ac
cepted by the House and Senate. Strong
sentiment developed for It In the House
when the bill was under consideration.
The late Congressman Payne spoke for
It. It was not expected the conferees
would take action, however, as the
amendment is in the nature of new

"Chicago's record Is almost as bad
as Japan's," said County Clerk Sweltz

however, that Chicago is the 'dumping

winging a pair of wooden stools, which
he snatched up after breaking the
straps of a restraining sheet, ran wild
through the observation ward of the
workhouse In BlackwcH's Island, beat
ing down and Injuring half a dozen men,
one of them fatally, was told after
James Oteason, seventy jeers old, died
In the Island hospital.
Qleason was struck on the head aa he
lay In bed by George B. Cuffe, who tore
screaming and cursing through the
place, swinging the stools and knocking
down everybody who approached.
Although Cuffe swept his way through
the ward Friday night about :30
o'clock,' no details of it were allowed to
get out of the Institution until Qleason
died. Then a coroner had to be noti
fied, and an investigation was begun im
mediately. Friday night Cuffe, In the course of
his wanderings about the ward, come
upon Qleason sitting dejectedly on the
edge of his bed. Cuffe sat down be
side the old man and began talking to
"I wish I was dead," Qleason was
heard to say. . ,'
"You wish you were dead?" repeated
Cuffe. "Why don't you die?"
Fearing that Cuffe would become vio
lent, one of the patients called Dr. S. Q.
Conger, house physician, who put a re
straining jacket on Cuffe, and strapped
him to his bed.
At 9:30 o'clock the Inmates had re
tired, and Cuffe lay silent. Qleason was
asleep. A moment later the orderly,
Samuel J. Flynn, left the ward to
make his rounds.
When Flynn left the room Cuffe
began squirming about In his restrain
ing sheet, straining to break his
bonds. .Suddenly the straps snapped,
and Cuffe leaped to his feet. He
snatched two wooden stools that stood
by the foot of his bed, and, swinging
them aloft, one In each hand, started
for the bed where Qleason lay asleep.
The ward was In an uproar. The
patients sprang from their beds, and
tried to stop Cuffe, but the maniac
tote through them with superhuman
strength, sweeping them down with
the stools.
Qleason slept through the noise and
excitement, and the first Intimation he
had of his fate was when Cuffe, with
half a dozen men hanging to his body
And trying to pull him down, swung
on i of his chairs against the old
mar.'s head. Gleason sank back with
a moan and Cuffe then turned on the
Inmates and guards trying to restrain
him. He Injured several before he
was finally overpowered.
