New York, Jan. 11.—Bradstreet's to
day says:
Financial affairs show further and
marked improvements, and money Is
more plentiful and easier to obtain,
but the gain In trade and industry pro
per is still largely one of sentiment,
because business is quiet the country
over, railway earnings and bank clear
ings are below a year ago, collections
are slow, tho better than a month ago,
and Industry is, as a whole, on short
time, with the larger centers reporting
a great number of unemployed.
In trade lines, the general report Is
one of backward business. Mild
weather is still a bar to the widest ac
tivities in seasonable goods north and
west Some lines report after holiday
collections are better than those of De
cember, and In some cases better than
anticipated, but they in few cases are
better than slow to fair. Some events
of the week in the dry goods lines are

There is to be a mass meeting in the
Congregational church tomorrow even

the projected hospital, and the ways
and means of providing for them. It
is expected that there will be univer

The registers of election are busy
for the three days of the last half of
this week .in preparing the lists of vot
ers for the coming election which
shall determine whether Grinnell wants
the Waterloo, Pella & Southwestern
railroad. /By the number who come in
to be sure that their names are prop

which most of them express opinions,
there seems likely to be a large vote
and a definite settlement of the ques
tion at the polls on January 18.

The report of I. S. Bailey, secretary

both good weather and good manage

the stockholders, as such conditions
have not existed for some years be

New York, Jan. 11.—Labor's right to
strike was recognized by Secretary
of War Taft in his initial "campaign
speech" in New York, delivered in the
People's Institute. The announced
topic of his address was "Labor and
Capital, Their Common Interests,
Tileir Necessary Controversies, Their
Lawful Acts, and the Legal Remedies
for Their Abuses."
He added, however, that "a resort to
violence, or other form of lawlessness,
011 liphalf of a labor union, properly
merits and receives the sharpest con
demnation from the public, and Is like
ly to lose the cause of labor its sup
port in the particular controversy."
Audience Asks Questions.
At the conclusion of Ids address the
audience had its turn. Chairman
Smith announced that Secretary Taft
would read the questions as they were
handed up, whereupon the secretary
said he did not "know the rules of the'
game," but understood that only those
questions pertaining to the topic of the
evening were to be answered.
The questions came thick and fast,

What is a man
There was an audible pause. The
secretary looked to the far corners of
iong nnes
workmen gathered there.
"God knows," he replied. "They have
my deepest sympathy if they cannot
get work. It is an awful case when a
man is willing to work and Is put in
this position."
There was a loud shout when the
secretary commenced to laugh while
