1 THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 1912 WILL PURCHASE MILK FOR BABIES Robert M. MeWade. Bismarck Tribune Washington Bureau. WASHINGTON, June 6—A touch ing aftermath of the recent Dolly Mad ison breakfast is the decision of the big-hearted women, who after having exerted themselves to promote harmony within the Democratic household, have agreed to raise a fund by dollar and up contributions from their individual membership for the purchase pf milk and other necessaries for the ,wee ba bies iirthe camps on "the edgeJrof the districts covered by the disastrous Mississippi floods. At first, the women had it in mind to make a gift to Mrs. Robert C. Wickliffe, -wife of Congress man Wickliffe, of Louisiana, who was the originator of the breakfast idea, Cream Cake Makes Yon Hungry to Look at It By Mr*.

Her proposition was promptly accepted by her colleagues, who, with Mrs. Champ Clark leading with a donation of $50 and a similar one from Mrs. Wickliffe, at once opened a national subscription list. Next fall, the question of a per manent organization of the Dolly Mad ison association is to be taken up, and the ladies say it will be an undoubted success, financially and otherwise. HIGH COAL PRICES NAY OPEN OTHER FIELDS NEW YORK Restaurant Is now open for the public Robert M. MeWade. Bismarck Tribune Washington Bureau. WASHINGTON, June 6—In view of the sudden tilt upwards that the coal barons are giving the prices of coal, it is timely to note the fact that ad ditional coal fields of vast extent are being brought to the notice of the, people through Director George Otis Smith, of the Geological Survey. Ap parently sympathizing with the sky ward prices of beef, mutton, etc., the rates of coal are being pushed at Wash ington and elsewhere, to an uncom fortably high figure, ranging anywhere from 15 to 50 cents a ton, the retail dealers placing the blame on the oper ators, and the latter having the gall to blame it on the recent fractional raise in the wages of the coal miners. The new coal fields are in Arizona, which, says Director Smith, although it has produced no coal on a commer cial scale, "contains promising fields, which may be profitably exploited when transportation is afforded, and when population and manufactures have reached a point which will provide a market for the output. The more im portant of these fields are Black Mesa coal fields, in the Hopi and Navaja Indian reservations, and the Deer Creek field. "The coal land in the Black Mesa fields covers 5,920 square miles, con taining 14,082.000,000 short tons, of which 8,000,000,000 tons are recover able the rest being under very heavy cover. The Deer Creek field includes an area of thirty squre miles in the middle of the copper-producing region of Arizona, and. estimating that 24 in ches of coal extends through the thirty square miles, the coal beds contain about 60,000,000 short tons. "In these fields there are two grades of coal—one a hard, black coal, well adapted for transportation and for commercial uses, and also possessing some coking quality the other, a soft, badly crushed coal, which could not be marketed except locally. It is be lieved, however, that as this lower grade of coal is high in volatile matter it could be used for the manufacture of gas, to be piped to the places of con sumption, or used in the development of electrical power."

The report strikes out every increase in salary which the Senate passed' and speaks of "abuses" which have grown up in "the laxity and' in completeness" of the printing laws. The more important committee amendments as reported to the House yesterday are as follows: Consolidates the positions of depu ty public printer and superintendent of work, and assigns the clerical dut ies heretofore performed by the depu ty public printer to a clerk al)ove class 4. Strikes out the increase in salaries of officials at the government print, ing office. Makes permanent provision for a medical and sanitary officer at the government printing office. Provides that the sale of all gov ernment publications, other than maps and charts, and with- certain other exceptions, shall be centralized under the superintendent of docu ments, without the 10 .per cent added. Provides that the distribution of all public documents on the regular mailing lists of the executive depart ments, independent offices and estab lishments of the government shall be centralized at the government print ing offce. Provides that either house may abolish its folding room. Provides for thf publication of the official register with the ommission of unnecessary matter. The bill amends existing law by fixing $2,250 as the maximum annual salary that may be paid by the pub lic printer without any specific ap propriation therefor. A number of assistant foremen of work divisions are now paid by the public .printer a little more than $2,000 a year and the committee thought it wise to make a limit. Pay for Skilled Classes. The bill fixes the compensation of the principal classes of skilled trades in the government printing office comprehended in the general terms of printers and bookbinders at 50 cents an hour. "These general classes," says the report, "are segregated, and a higher compensation allowed those excep tional positions, the filling of which requires more than ordinary skill or entails unusual responsibility, which distinction is in harmony with the rules of the trade. "It provides that the compensation of joh compositors, imposers, press men, gilders, marblers and bookbind er-machine operators shall be 5 cents per hour higher than the compensa tion to be paid to the other employes within the general classification. This is an increase of 5 cents per hour in the compensation of job compositors and pressmen all the other employ es within this special classification are now paid 55 cents per hour and it is further provided that the com pensation of proof readers, makers up, printer-linotype operators, print er- monotype keyboard operators, pressmen in charge, stereotypers and electroty.pers shall be 60 cents per hour. Purpose of Amendment. "The amendment proposed is in tended to do justice to a small group of em moves of the government print ing office, known as folding machine operators, by providing that they shall be included as bookbinders, at the rate of 50 cents per hour. This affects not to exceed fifteen employes, who are now paid 40 cents an hour. The classification as bookbinders of those folding-machine operators who have served at least four years in the' government printing office is mer ited by these faithful employes. "This section also authorizes the payment to per diem of per hour em ployes of 50 per cent, in addition to the regular compensation for Sunday work, which provision has been in corporated in the sundry civil appro priation act. "This section also provides for the payment of 20 per cent for night work in addition to the regular com pensation allowed per diem, and per hour employes, which is a rewriting of existing law. except that per hour and per diem employes are differen tiated from employes receiving annu al salaries, whether fixed by law or regulation. ihe committee according a hear ing to representatives of the printing pressmen's organizations, who urged that the compensation of pressmen in the government printing office be in creased from 50 to 60 cents per hour, instead of from 50 to 55 cents per hour, as provided for in the bill. Af ter a careful consideration of the matter the committee came to the conclusion that the rate provided for .*^.jw^"^-.^«^rf,.-m^ BISMARCK DAILY TRIBUNE. in the bill is a fair and equitable one." Rate for Pressmen High. The rate for pressmen as proposed by the bill is higher, the committee claims, »than that paid in any other city where pressmen are employed under similar conditions. Eleven sections of the bill are de voted to establishing a general organ ization of the government printing of fice, by the specific designation of duties: "Public printers come and go," says the report. "There having been five public printers in the last six years. each with his own ideas of organiza tion, and so long as the organization of the government printing office is to be left entirely to the discretion and subject to the whims and fancies of a public printer, the work of the office must be hampered because of changes in the duties of the officials and the consequent changes in the general procedure of the office, each change of organization a tremendous loss in efficiency, service and mon ey." The Senate bill raised the public printer's salary to $6,000 the House committee recommends that it stay at $5,500. The position of deputy public .printer is recommended abol ished, his duties to be consolidated with those of the superintendent of works. Another section of the bill consol idates under the accountant supervis ion over all accounting, compting, etc. This will eliminate one position. The bill authorizes the appointment of a foreman of binding, but not at $2,750, as passed by the Senate. The House committee believes $2,500 is enough. The same salary is recommended for the foreman of binding, a $250 reduc tion from the Senate bill. The amended bill also proposes to centralize the distribution of public documents. ENGLAND NOW FACES ARMY HORSE PROBLEM System Now in] Vogue De-s clared To Be Useless Waste of Money LONDON, June 6—The extraordin ary difficulty now being experienced in finding good horses should help to emphasize the wasteful and yet inade quate expenditure in which the gov ernment is about to indulge. Some 80,000 territorials, who will presently begin their fortnightly train ing for the year, are without a horse to their equipment. They are going to be supplied by hiring horses at the cost of $750,00, for which there will be nothing whatever to show when the training is over. Some of these horses are hired and rehired and hired again, so that the government may pay in hiring fees within the year, more than the total value of the horse. By this redicu lous arrangement the minimum of horses is trained, the men get no chance of learning the ways of a horse or the art of horsemanship ex cept during the fortnight and the troops are left without a horse at their disposal. Even in the annals of the British army there was never a more wasteful and inefficient sys tem. The fact that Italy has half denuded Ireland of horses—1,500 were sent away recently In one con signment—and that the reserve of omnibus horses has disappeared'make the system the more dangerous. Adequate Supply Needed. It has recently been demonstrated by those concerned with the master of hounds military horse breeding system, that $750,000 could be effec tively used to secure a supply of horses in each locality and finally to IB Reminds Me of My Barefoot Days!" "My Feet Never Get Sore, Tired or Chafed Now, Because I Use TIZ." "TIZ makes mo feel like a boy again. Nothing would hurt my feet In those days, even when I'd run around barefooted with Rover, over rocks and pebbles and sticks. "To be able now to have feet that never ache, never get tired, blistered, swollen or chafed, or have corns, callouses or bun Ions, is a glorious recompense for all the other aches and pains one suffers In the winter of life. TIZ makes the feet feel young, and young feet make you fed young all over. "I've tried many things for my poor old tired feet, for those bunions of 20 years, and for those corns that have added wrinkles to my face. I've tried plasters, powders and salves—and nothing has ever given the relief that TIZ has.

The board of agriculture and the war of fice have approved the gist of the system, but the other absurd method still preferred, because no one will take the trouble to subtitute a per manent for a temporary and tempor izing plan, and so the expensive mud dle remains. It is probable that many an old horse worth some $75 will earn this summer, in passing from one camp to another, a whole procession of five pound fees. At the end the horses used by territorials will be added to gether as if no item had been repeat ed, and some one will get up in par liament to demonstrate how large the supply of horses is. WOULD CURB FLAG'S USE. Association Favors Punishment for Women Who Embroider the "Stars and Stripes." CHICAGO. June 6.—The woman who spends her time in embroidering the stars and stripes of "Old Glory" on a sofa pillow in order to show her patriotism—the woman who wraps the star-spangled1 banner, the emblem of freedom, around her who makes a costume for her children from its brilliant colors, will find herself liable to a fine of from $25 to $100 for the first such offense, and for a second violation to a fine of $1,200 and im prisonment for one year—that is, if Dr. Bernard J. Cigarand and the Na tional Flag Day Association have their way. Dr. Cigrandi would permit children to carry flags in the parades, but would warn them to be careful how tt*ey carry the national emblem, for the proposed measure provides ex pressly against "displaying the flag wrong side down." The merchant who fills his ghow windows full of flags, with maybe ft picture of Washington or of Grant or Lincoln, merely to draw the fancies of the crowd—the advertiser who dares to embellish his "paper" with the red, white and blue—are both guilty of the same crlmnial offense in the eyes of Dr. Cigrand and the National Flag Day Association. These measures were advocated to increase respect for the national em blem at the sixth annual convention of the Flag) Day Association, held at Memorial Hall, public brary building, yesterday.
