No General Strike. -By ARTHUR BRISBANE? (Copyrlaht. Kit.) The Philadelphia Public Ledger, not merely owned by'he able Mr. Curtis, discovers that there exists is the United State? *"? new progressivism.' Mr. Curtis see? it in lows, Nebraska, aad a mile high in Wisconsin, where La Follette's victory makes conservatism shake its hoary head. Just aa this countrv thought, hi official quarters, that it was settling down to a lon? reign of capitalistic conservatism, up comes th? "new progressivism." ????> ^ You cannot escape your fate, Sf a German- proverb has it. And yea never ' can tell what will happen. Eugene Timofeef was ferociously radical while the ctar lived. He fought c>.ar lsm and spent ten years at hard labor under the crar's rule. Then came the end of czars, with Lenin and Trotsky, aad Timofeef threw hia hat high in the air. Now he is dead. Bolshevik successors to the czar con demned him to death with eleven ef his friemds. He wssn't quite radical enough, or radical in the rijrht way. He didn't like his prison, ani killed himself, "put ting Ms head into a ventilator ?nd rauaing suffocation," ae? cording to nie report. Dleaatiefaction is a great SDwep?greatest in the world, ut not many of the dissatis fied know what would happen, or how it would seem if they .rot what they ask for. The railroad engineers' union, well managed, conservative, in telligent, buys for two-and-a half million? a six-story build ing in Cleveland, to have a na tional bank, owned by the loco motive brotherhood. To own a bank is good, Por a union to ?how that it knows how to in vest two-and-a-half millions, ?nd has the money, is another good thing. One thing people of all kinds and colors rei in the United States, and is TWO-AND-A-HALF LION DOLLARS. The famous philanthropist, Nathan Straus, said to this writer, when both were young: "Brisbane, I know you haven't got any money, but for heaven'? sake dont .tell anybody. You have no idea how much it hurte Four standing. *v> '?' ,?? Dr. ?. C. Murphy, of many learned societies, says mam mals of the sea need protec tion. That will interest Wil liam Jennings Bryan, for sea mammal?, unless Darwin was mistaken, lived at first in the sea, later went up on land, got legs, learned how to have chil dren born alive, and how to nurse them. Then, giving up the struggle on land, they wandered back to the ocean, where they lost their legs and became water animals once more. Every whale, when you dig under the blubber, show? a little pair of rudimentary leg and hip bones in its skeleton. Mr. Bryan ought to look at them. Sea mammals dying out are the manatee, or sea cow?you read about her in boys' adven ture stories?the Mais, and the whales. All are vanishing rap idly. However, all animal life on the earth, except man, ruler, will disappear eventually, in eluding, let us hope, microbes and all germa Sea mammals, led by the manatee, might as well go first. ?MammmnSBSSe The American Federation of Labor wisely declines to call a general strike to express sym ?sthy with the shopmen. To it everybody on the head to ?how that you are sorry for somebody wouldn't be wise. Occasionally mourners scratch and cut themselves and howl. That's savage, but if they must do it, they must. But for all workers of the United Sutes to strike all the people of the United SUtes to show that they don't like an injunction would be silly. No need of that in a country where men can vote. Bonnet, head of the French School of Fine Arts, is dead, aged ninety. That means some thing in France, where art is taken seriously. Bonnet paint ed admirable portraits of Thiers and Victor Hugo, among others. He was working to the end, like the great Titian, who was hard at work at ninety-eight end died of the plague at ninety-nine. Titian painted admirably the submis sion of Emperor Frederick Bar barossa to the Pope. And he painted portraits of his wife in pictures of purgatory, heaven, and hell, to be sure that he would meet her later. That will interest ladies. In Iowa the Rev. W. E. Robb, a clergyman end also a sheriff, trill personally hang Eugene Weeks, a condemned murderer. That is news, because up to now no clergyman has ever played the pert of hangman. In the war ?the Rev.

Railroad strikers lost their first tilt in the injunction bat tle this morning when Asso ciate Justice Bailey of tbe District Supreme Court denied a motion for a temporary re straining order against put ting Into effect in this juris diction the provisions of the order issued to Attorney Oen eral Daugherty in Chicago last week. At. the same time the court ordered District Attorney Pey ton Gordon and Unitd States Marshal Edgar C. Snyder to make no move in enforcing the decree of Federal Judge Wilkerson "in excess of its provisions as originally pro mulgated." Chicago Action Awaited. Justice Bailey made it clear that this move was "without prejudice to renewal" on Mon day, when the restrictions upon the two officiais would expire. Arguments on the question of a permanent injunction against Gordon and Snyder will be heard, in all probability, within a week after the completion of proceedings at Chicago, where the question of making perma nent the Daugherty injunction will be brought up on Monday. Union Urge? Early Action. Stated in plain terms, this morn ing's decision means that the courts are not prepared to nullify the order Issued by Judge Wilkerson before the legal representatives of Oovern ment and labor have thrashed out the rights or wrongs of that ukase before the bench thai made the first move ln the war of restraining order?. Justice Bailey Immediately upon the opening of proceedings, ex pressed the opinion that as a practi cal move It would be better to con tinue the hearing Monday. Attorney James 8. Easby-8mlth, appearing for the petitioners?James P. Noonan, president, and Charles P. Ford, s?Bcretary of the Interna tional Brotherhood of Electrical Workers?argued that there waa no assurance the Chicago order would be so modified as to remove feat'irea objectionable to labor, and pressed his request for a temporary enjoin ment. This morning's proceedings made clcerer that the counter injunction mov*tby Noonan at Tord, represent ing % ^.strikers here, was merely an enterh k w*?dge to open the whale question of the Government's right to employ the Injunction against or ganised labor on strike. Want Precedent Established. Attorney Oeneral Daugherty mide clear a few days after obtaining the Chicago decree that,the stricture on strikers' meetings would not apply except In case? where plans were laid "to interfere with Interstate com merce." .Therefore, the local shopmen have baten In no danger of molestation by Marshal Snyder. It Is merely desired to set a precedent a? to the right of strike machinery to function, aa re gard? picketing, and disbursing of benefits after a walk-out.

Column 4.) Typographical Union Commends Mr. Hearst For Labor Attitude Whole Business Prosperity of the Country Largely Rests on High Wages, Says Editor in His Acknowledgment. Through the publisher of tha Chicago American, Chicago Typographical Union, No. 16, forwarded to William Randolph Hearst these resolutions, beautifully engrossed and illuminated and bound in morocco and ?ilk: In APPRECIATION o? the advocacy of a higher standard of living for the families of the WORKINGMEN OP AMERICA re vealed in the publiihed utterances of WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST, the fol lowing resolutions were unanimously adopt ed by CHICAGO TYPOGRAPHICAL UNION, No. 16, at a regular meeting held May 28th, 1932: WHEREAS, the trade unionists' ideai is the full i-p plication of the principles and mechanism of democracy in the industries and in the relationship between the em ployer and employe; and WHEREAS, trade unionist? believe that childhood should be dedicated to growth, play, and education, youth to character building, and manhood to the development of the higher qualities of citizenship; and WHEREA8, the wage earners' standard of living, which rests so largely upon the wages received and upon the hours of labor, establishes the physical, mental, and moral foundations of the masses upon which the structure of our American insti tutions must rest; and WHEREAS, out of the wilderness of ideas concerning readjustment and reconstruction comes the voice of WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST courageously championing these principles in the following eloquent enuncia tion: LABOR in the printing trades is very much higher than it was before the war, and I personally sincerely hope that these high wages will be maintained, so that with increasing costs of living a higher standard of life can be maintained by the working man and his family. The highest object and best achievement of our American civilisation is a high standard of living for the people generally; and obviously there is nothing which so much conduces to that as a high standard of wages." THEREPORE RE IT RESOLVED, That CHICAGO TYPOGRAPHICAL UNION No. 16, in regular meeting assembled, hereby commends WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST for his wisdom, courage, and fore sight in his leadership of the masses toward the "ideal of an American standard of living;" and be it further RESOLVED, That a copy of this me morial be spread upon the minutes of this meeting, a copy fittingly engrossed and presented to WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST, and a copy published in the Typographical Journal Newspaper scale committee: WILEY ?

September 3, 1993. Mr. Herman Black, Publish?:, Chicago American: Will you please express to Chicago Typo graphical Union, No. 16, my vary deep appreciation of the set of resolutions which they have presented to me? I agree in a great many matters with the aims and objects of the labor unions. In the matter of maintaining a Ugh stand ard of wage?, and consequently a high standard of living, I am not considering merely the objects of the labor unions, nor indeed alone the welfare of the working This in itself is important enough, to be sure, but there is a still more important thing, and that is the general welfare of the whole community; and that general welfare depends more largely than people seem to realise upon the prosperity of the dominant element in the community? namely, the wage earners. High wages mean a high purchasing power by the largest element of the mass of our population, and a high purchasing power means not only comfort for those who possess this power, but it means pros perity for the merchants with whom those wage earners deal. It means orders for the factories from which the merchants buy, and it means de mand for the raw materials furnished by the farms and the mines. In other words, high wages, with the consequent high standard of living, with the consequent high purchasing power, is not merely a social ideal, but an economic ad vantage on which the whole business pros perity of the country largely rests. It is my endeavor to make this fact as clear as possible to my fellow-citizens gen erally, so that all will come to realise that the matter of high wages is not merely a largess to labor, but a general benefit to the whole community?an economic buttress to the nation.

Hop? of saving the life of Mrs. Harding, wife of the President, who is un dergoing the ravages of hydro-nepr.ro?.?, f -fini? lent disease of the kid neys leading to fatal uraemic poisoning, was gradually fading early this afternoon.

AU forenoon there was a gradual rise in Mrs. Harding's temperature. This was eon ceded to be a grave indication that the threatened uraemic poisoning was near at hand, the rise in temperature being one of the symptoms marking the approach of the dread de velopment. There is now no secret that wastes which should otherwise have been eliminated, but are now blocked by the diseased kidneys, have found their way into her blood system and have caused a toxic condition.
