I A FRIENDLY REMINDER Complaints have recently come to this office about the speed of interur ban cars entering the city from the east. It is not that we think that the letter of the ordinance on speed should be strictly enforced, but it is certain that the Dayton interurbans Richmond bound do avail themselves of the steep grade from Glen Miller to the center of town in a manner which is dangerous to the safety of the pub lic. We are awp.re that schedules are difficult to keep up when traffic is heavy and that the motorraan Is un der a temptation (if not orders) to make up speed. 1 That this should be done at the risk of life and limb is an unfortunate state. This criticism of the lnterurban company is entirely friendly and we hope that something may be accomplished in this way rath er than in an attack which makes for bad feeling. . THE JOY COMPANY Now and again the serious discus sion arises in the 'silly season' (which we are now in) of what to read and wnat to do. Editorial writers wax eloquent on five feet shelves of book3 or venture theories on avoiding sun stroke. The average man will unbut ton. his collar, .kick off his shoes, and pick up a current magazine in the breeze of an electric fan. But we must confess now and then that we grow weary of the magazines and wish that they would stick to their busl ness of amusing people and- putting them in pleasant spirits rather than publishing muck-raking articles which bother the subconscious mind. There fore the public owes a debt of grati tude to "Life" and to William Allan wood or Indianapolis, for the sub joined article. As Mr. Wood is the author of a standard book on corpora tion law, we think he has done ser ious minded folk a service. It must 3ave been something of this sort which led Mr. Gilbert Chesterton to say that what people who believe in plain living and high thinking need is a little high living and plain think ing. Tor them we publish the article on the most advanced corporation we know of and it is the best public serv ice corporation yet promulgated. ARTICLE I. NAME. The name of this association shall be The Joy Company, Unlimited. ARTICLE II. OBJECT. ine object of this association, in furtherance of the rights of life, liber ty, and the pursuit of happiness and In the interest of good comradeship, is w promote me use or the easy chair, the stein, the soothing weed. and the story; by means of crackling v logs in a broad fireplace, to incite to the geniality that knits closer the group of hearty talkers and contented listeners: to induce boisterous laueh ter, merry songs, lusty choruses, and strange, brave and romantic stories; to journey in the world of imagination and, though there be snow and storm outside, to wander in green forests, to gather the blossoms of the peach and hawthorn, to hear the night birds sing, the streamlets purl, the far-off har mony of piano and voice, to gaze on tars as thick as leaves of Vallam brosa, to have fond sweethearts, and to enjoy the lunarian rights and privi leges of an Italian night in June; to tnjoy all these rights and privileges in their seasons; to use such nicknames, terms of affection, handclasps and ca resses as will promote good feeling ind show the love and regard in which companions are held; to give words of praise and encouragement to one another, to assist one another in svery way possible not. inconsistent with our mutual strength and our per jonal sense of Justice and to foster ne another's confidence in strength f manhood and one another's hope of Iving up to high ideals and attain hg high accomplishments; to preserve peasant memories the swimming ools and sand heaps of our youth, the wasting hill of winter days, the Cru toes and Alices of Wonderland that rhiled away our evenings, the games if ball and the athletic contests, the . . . ,.... riding, hunting and fishing parties, the luring dances, the lyric thrills of first love, the poets that expressed for lis the bright and happy colors of life and the beauties of crowded hours, and all those caressing or inspiring mem ones, of . larger experiences, f deeper emotions, more vivid passions and more Intellectual avocations that make life rich, colorful and epic in our ma turity; to do all these things, and to do them before the world, so as to in vite competition on the part of all mankind, that the profits of this as sociation may be cumulative and per petual. ARTICLE III. HOME OFFICE. The home office of this association shall be any place where there are a sufficient number of good fellows, two or more, to create warmth and delight by their presence. ARTICLE IV. CAPITAL STOCK. The. capital stock of this association shall be unlimited, but an amount nec essary to create an atmosphere of good cheer shall be sufficient for working capital, and shall be contrib uted by the members in such ways and proportions as they may see fit provided the total is always enough to keen the association alive and the profits shall be distributed according to each member's capacity to contri bute and enjoy. All surplus profits shall be turned over to the world at large. ARTICLE V. SEAL. The seal of this association, shall consist of the expression of faith and love, showing through a cordial smile, and shall be used whenever it i3 nec essary to validate any of the acts of this association or of any of Its members. Again we thank Mr. Wood and Life. Items Gathered in From Far and Near In the Harvest Fields. From the Baltimore American. If the floating labor units in the great cities could be diverted to the great harvest fields of the northwest there would be double benefit of elim inating surplus labor at congested points and concentrating it at points of demand. The cry is being raised in Minnesota for not less than 10,000 hands to harvest the crops of that state and its sister, North Dakota. De spite the fact that excellent induce ments in wages and , opportunity for open-air and healthful employment are offered, it is exceedingly likely that the agriculturalists will suffer loss on account of scarcity of labor. Men out of work or working for $1.50 a day can go west and get $3.50. The agent of the Great Northern railroad is the au thority for the statement of the case.

The fifty fifth convention of the International Typographical Union convened today in the Coliseum, St. Joseph's big con vention hall. Addresses of welcome were made by Mayor Clayton. Presi dent Burnham, of the local typograph ical union and others, and a response by President Lynch, of the Internat ional Typographical Union, after which the convention began consider ation of a large volume of business, ultimately adjourning until Tuesday morning to hear the report of the cre dentials committee on contested seats. The reports of President Lynch and Secretary-Treasurer Hays show great progress made by the union during the last year. Is 57 Years Old. The International Typographical Union is fifty-seven years old, and with the present gathering has held fifty-five conventions during its life time. In 1896 and 189S biennial con ventions were held. The International Typographical Union claims to be the oldest national or international organ ization of skilled labor in the world. Its sessions here this week are at tended by three hundred delegates and eight hundred visitors. Matters of importance that are to come before the convention are pro positions for the establishment of an insurance feature, and certain changes proposed in the pension policy that was made effective by the union one year ago. The relations between the union and the American Newspaper Publishers' Association will also be up for consideration. Has Many Features. The International Typographical Union has many features that are unique with labor organizations, and which stamp this union as one of the most progressive in the labor field. The pension policy, for instance, is distinctive with the International Ty pographical Union. Under the pension law, members who have reached the age of 60 years and are unable to se cure sustaining employment at the trade are paid $4 per week. The pay ment of pensions has heretofore been considered the function of the govern ment, but in this instance the union evidently believes that its veterans should be taken care of independent of state or nation. The pavment of pensions began with the first of last August and up to May 31. when the union's fiscal year closed. $67,580 had been paid pensioners, while the ad ministration of the fund had cost only $2,000. Conducts a Home. The union also conducts a home at Colorado Springs, and contributed dur ing its fiscal year to this institution $86,518.31. The actual expense of con ducting the Union Printers Home was $72,598.94, and there was a balance in the home fund of $32,337.63. The re ceipts and expenditures of the home from its inception to May 31, 1909, were $867,801.20 and $835,463.66. The home property at Colorado Springs is valued at $1,000,000. The union pays a burial benefit of $75. During the fiscal year there were ..

The expenditures of the Internat ional Typographical Union during its fiscal year were $161,544.45. From the year 1891 to 1909 the union received $6,1S8.045.75, and ex pended $5,950,898.90, this sum includ ing the expense of conducting the Union Printers Home. The union has a membership of 47,174. The union also conducts a technical school at Chicago for the benefit of its members and apprentices who de sire to perfect themselves in their trade. The sessions of the convention will continue throughout the week. TARIFF FIGHT Oil CLEAR TO f CUMMINS ASSERTS (Continued Prom Page One.) IIIISH said. "Of course the last contest In the house over the rules, which in volved the speakership in a way, was a part of the general line of action of the republicans who believe as has been indicated here." "It is hardly necessary for me to reiterate my personal position," the Iowa senator said. "That was covered fully and at length in a speech made during the closing hours of the taritf debate. My vote tells that story. I do not believe the tariff bill maintains the pledges made by the republican platform formulated in Chicago." "Is the tariff law such a one as can be Indorsed by an Iowa republican state convention?" he was asked. Wants Pledge Fulfilled. "That is hardly a question for me to answer at this time," he replied. "I have every confidence in President Taft I believe he has an administra tive policy thoroughly progressive. The tariff law is a republican law and superior to any one that could be iramea Dy tne democrats, in my judgment President Taft will demand that it be administered fairly and equi tably. With his cooperation and ex pert tariff commission ran be seeored which will furnish absolute and a challeneable figures unon the actual cost of production of commodities the United States and In foreign tries. Upon these figures the tariff schedules can be revised systematic ally where revision Is necessary, al ways maintaining the protection prin ciple." "What Immediate steps will be taken by the progressives'?" States the Issue Flatly. "We shall present the issue flatly to every republican " convention between the present and the national conven tion of 1912. where it is possible for the issue to be presented. That issue Is: Shall the men now in control of party destinies be permitted further to disregard plain party declarations?"- Senator Cummins was emphatic In declaring that President Taft had ex hausted every resource at bis com mand in attempting to obtain honest tariff revision, such as had been of fered in the Chicago platform, and that no blame justly attaches to th president because of the failure of congress to enact a law different from the Payne law. The senator will depart for Des Moines this morning. It Is his first trip to Iowa since be was elected to the senate for the long term last Jan- I uary. As to Iowa politics, be said: "Never has there been a greater spir it of harmony within the republican party of Iowa than at present. The party Is thoroughly united. There will be no factional attempt to defeat men because they are progressives or be cause they are standpatters. Iowa Is in a state of absolute political peace." Senator Cummins, dined with Senat or Borah of Idaho. During the even ing in his apartments he was visited by several western congressmen on their journey home. actual lesSlP VVUU" Lou I declare, since I came back I'm quite another woman.
