TEDDY CHAMPIONS LABOR'S CAUSE Some Contractors Have Been Work ing Their Men Twelve Hours and More. Associated Press to The Bvealac Tlaies. Washington, July 19.—Action of the greatest importance to labor circles is contemplated in a direction given by the president to officers in charge of public works, at the instance of Sec retary Taft. This is to employ the government's own officers to direct and punish violations of the law of 1902, providing except that in case of emergency work upon government buildings, ships and other properties shall be limited to eight hours each day for each workman. An effort was made by the forces of organized labor during the last ses sion of congress to secure legislation to this end, but so effective was the opposition of the great contracting firms that adjournment was had with out any action upon the pending bill. Heretofore it has been the practice of executive officers when complaint was made by labor unions that the eight hour law was being violated by contractors building ships, construct ing public buildings, engaged in river and harbor works and other public enterprises to reply that it was not their business that the law was bind ing upon the contractors and that if the labor unions felt aggrieved and knew of violations of the law, they should proceed against the offenders. The unions asserted it was almost im possible to secure necessary evidence. Under the president's direction every government officer in charge of or in specting a public work is to be direct ed to promptly report to the depart ment of justice any violations by con tractors of the eight hour lav and prosecution by and at the expense of the government is to follow. The.effect of the order upon the cost, of government work is expected to be very great. Government contractors have worked their men ten and twelve and even more hours a day if they cannot do this they say they must increase by 20 or 25 per cent the amount of their bids,, so congress must either increase by like percentage the appropriations for public works or must correspondingly reduce the amount of work authorized Executive officers are having diffi culty in the application of the presi dent's order to report violations of the eight-hour law by government con tractors. The attorney general may be called on for many opinions before the question is settled. MINOTERS LIKE BEER. Whole Carload of Boose Stolen There In a Single Night Special to The Bvealac Times. Minot, July 20.—Burglars are steal ing beer and whiskey in Minot by the carloads. A gang of bandits broke into a Minot cold storage Tuesday night and carted away eight barrels and ten cases of beer. The men drove to the cold storage with a team, backed up against the door, pounded the entrance in with a sledge hammer, loaded their wagon and hurried away. How the burglars could drive up to the storage and load a wagon with out someone seeing them Is a mystery and one that is puzzling the police. A city official recently said "I doubt very much if there is any object in trying to find the burglars, for as far as I can learn it was not a crime to steal the beer. The sale, distribution and storage of beer In North Dakota, I understand, is illegal, and if that is the case the property can be confiscated at any time. "It might be a good Idea, however, to find out who Is carting away the beer. Whoever would steal it in sucn large quantities probably has a blind pig which he operates In Minot oh a large scale.

The soundness of a judge's legal judgment and the wisdom of a particular law may well be called in question, but an honesti decision should not expose the judge himself to criticism." In the beginning Mr. Jerome said that there are men, guided by a high sense of duty, who will do and con tinue to do their duty as they see it, regardless of the majority opinion which we call public opinion but with effort and depression.

THEY BEGAN WORK DURING CIVIL WAR Women Clerks Insist Upon Having Their Own Way and Are Hard to Manage. (By E. C. Snyder.) Washington, D. C., July 20.—The day of the woman in the government service bids fair to pass. The women clerks themselves do not realize the fact as yet, but the men do and are already predicting the arrival of the time when they will be absolutely alone In the government departments. In three of the executive depart ments of the government here, women are being gotten rid of. In the depart ment of commerce and labor there are no women clerks. In several of the bureaus of this department, which are located outside of the main build ing, some women clerks are employed, but in the main office there are no females. Women are slowly disappearing from the postoffice department, and the number in the war department is steadily decreasing. The day when there are no women in any branch of the department of commerce and labor and the poBtofflce department is measureably near. George Bruce Cortelyou, the first secretary of commerce and labor, and now the postmaster general, is said to be responsible for the inauguration of the movement to get rid of the women clerks. When he was at the head of the department of commerce and labor he began selecting men for all places to be filled, as far as pos sible, and while he could not discharge women solely because they were women, he found it quite possible to reduce the number by appointing none to places. When he left the depart ment he had got the number greatly reduced, and Secretary Metcalf has t'ollfewed 'n the footsteps of his prede cessor, so that the women in the de partment are comparatively few. Mr. Cortelyou carried the same principles to the postoffice department, and the number of women In that department, and the number of women In the post office department is said to be decreas ing right along, and has been ever since the regime of the present post master general began. The reason given for the preference of male clerks is that they are more tractable and less troublesome gen erally than are the women. A chief of a division in one of the departments agrees that in many instances the women do better work and more work than the men. "But she is harder to control," he said. "She has her own way of doing things and she won't take orders as readily as men will do. One woman in a room, particularly if she be an elderly one, will make a dozen clerks uncomfortable. I have yet to find one of them who wants the window up it a majority of the clerks want it that way, and if a majority want the win dows closed, she elects to have them up. Of course, the window stays as she wants it, but the men are in a bad humor all day." Women began working in the de partments here during the war be tween the states. The number in creased yearly for many years, and It was believed their work was satis factory. In fact, there is no serious ocmplaint against the work or the manner in which it Is done. But unless a mighty good sign fails women will eventually disappear from the departments altogether. RETURN TO WORK. Associated Press to The Bvealaw Times.

St. Petersburg, July 20.—Extreme nervousness and excitement prevades all classes owing to the fear that the action of the lower house of parlia ment in adopting at 2 o'clock this morning an address to the people may be the signal for a coup de etate against parliament. It is rumored that the step has been decided upon and tits Strana prints the report that an im perial ukase ordering the dissolution of parliament has already been signed. The feeling of general alarm Is In creased by the fact that all night long the guard regiments have been march ing into the city from the guards' camp at Krasnoye-Selo. Moreover it is known that the colonels of the Seminovsky regiment of the guard and of the Hussars, of the guard and colonels of the Ismallovsky, Pavlovsky, Preobrajansky and Yaegerski guard regiments and the colonel of the horse artillery of the guard were summoned to headquarters of the commander of the St. Petersburg garrison, where they received instructions regarding the disposition of troops in case ot certain eventualities.

It is hardly surprising to read that after this the matter was dropped by unani mous consent.
