COMMITTEE IS TO MEET FINANCE BOARD WILL. CONSIDER THE MATTER AT 8E38ION TO BE HELD THIS WEEK DEUKER IN STATEMENT. Members of the finance committee, as well as the other members of coun cil, are in favor of the f 3,000 appro prlation from the city for Reid Mem orial hospital. This appropriation will so doubt be placed in the budget of estimated expenses of the city for 1910, at the meeting of the finance committee Thursday or Friday even ing;, when the report of city controller Webster Parry on appropriations is considered. At the meeting: of council last Mon day, Mr. Parry made his report on the budget andt did not Include any appro priation for the hospital, which is ac cording to the democratic adminis tration's policy. Councilman Deuker presented a resolution asking for an appropriation of $3,000 for the main tenance of the hospital, but both the resolution and the budget were turned over to the finance committee for con sideration. Mr. Deuker, one of the members of the finance committee stated today that he believed the committee would recommend the ap propriation. Whatever Is done with the budget toy the finance committee at its meet ing will come before council next Mon day evening for ratification. - Mr. Deu ker stated today that besides includ ing the appropriation for the hospital, the budget would be altered but slight ly. There are always a few minor changes made by the finance commit tee, but which are of little importance. 44 m A BAD WAY Many a Richmond Reader Will Feel - Grateful for This Infor mation. When your back gives out; Becomes lame, weak or aching; When urinary troubles set in, Your kidneys 'are "in a bad way." Doan's Kidney Pills will cure you. Here is local evidence to prove it: Enoch Cromer, "09 N. Fourteenth Street, Richmond, Ind., says: "I have had no need of Doan's Kidney Pills since they cured me of kidney trouble In 1906. : In . July that year I gave a statement for publication endorsing this remedy and at the present time, I do not wish to withdraw anything I then said. Railroading is very hard on the kidneys and my case was no exception to the rule, as I suffered from kidney complaint for some time. The passages of the kidney secretions were irregular and painful and I often 1 dizzy and weak. Being advised to I y Doan's Kidney Pills, I procured a box at A. O. Luken A Co.'s drug store and their use brought prompt relief. In a short time I was entirely free from the trouble and since then when ever I have heard anyone complaining of backache or disordered kidneys, I have advised him to give Doan's Kid ney Pills a trial." , For sale by all dealers.

Several other candidates are likely to f get into this race, however, and Darby may not enter. Just who will take his place on the Btate committee is a question, as no one has been suggest ed as yet. Haas Not Candidate. Web Woodfill, of Greensburg, is to be the new member of the state com mittee from the sixth district to suc ceed E. M. Haas, of Richmond, if pres ent indications wotk out into a real ity. There is no other candidate, and it is said that Haas will not run again for the place. Woodfill is a rich man and is in the political game because he likes it. He has served two terms as a member of the house of represen tatives and has a wide acquaintance. It is said that it is generally taken as a settled fact that he will be elect ed district chairman. There will be a change, too, In the seventh district, which consist of Marion county. Oliver Ensley, the present member of the committee from the seventh, will not again be a can didate. There will be other changes, also, but there is not much talk about them thus far. It is pointed out that there will be no necessity for Senator Beveridge to seek to control the election of mem bers of the state committee. This is based on the ground that he will not have any opposition as a candidate before the next legislature, and that therefore any .committee that can car ry the state next yea,r for the ticket wiH also carry the state for Beveridge. Therefore, it is pointed out, Beveridge could keep hands entirely off the re organization of the committee without taking any chances, but this would be contrary to all political precedent. So it. may be assumed that he' will have something to say about the reorgan ization. LAST SESSION OF YEARLY MEETING WAS HELD TODAY (Continued From Page One.) - re-appointed William C. Biggs and Na than Gilbert as members of the board of trustees. S. B. Harvey was appoint ed to fill a vacancy on the visiting committee.

MATTER OF HISTORY. The eighty-ninth annual Indiana Yearly Meeting Sunday is now a mat ter of history. - Fully three thousand people gathered at the East Main Street Friends' Meeting House yester day afternoon and unconsciously re corded .the historic event. ; Approxi mately two-thirds of this number as sembled in the East Main Street Friends Meeting House and listened to some excellent and eloquent addresses while the other third contented them selves listening to the preaching out side the meeting house ' or moving about through the crowd. In the Meeting House, there was Timothy Nicholson, presiding in his usual competent and exacting manner. Mr. Nicholson has presided over the Indiana Yearly Meeting for five years and been a faithful attendant for forty five years. He knows the old and the young Friends the moment they enter the Meeting House, and the min isters he invites to the platform and the visiting laymen are content with a smile from the presiding officer. Two Veteran Friends. Immediately behind Mr. Nicholson sits Robert Douglas and Luke Wood ard. Both of them ministers' in the Friends Meetings, have an air of . au thority which comes to the older mem bers of a church, whose advice is read ily accepted by the laymen. Dr. Doug las has watched the Indiana Yearly Meeting for forty years and each year he sees a change in the, audience. Then Luke Woodard, a member of all the Important committees, in his re tiring manner "speaks as one having authority.", Mr. Woodard has attend' ed for sixty years and it is needless to say that he has watched with Interest the progress of the Friends Yearly Meeting. He attended the Meeting when it was held on North Tenth street and remembers distinctly the erection of the East Main Street Friends Meeting House in the year 1878. The treasurer, Charles Carpenter, "little and mighty," sits in front, and business like, handles the funds of the Yearly Meeting. Mr. Carpenter has attended the Yearly Meeting since 1854. He also remembers the erec- I tion of the East Main Street Friends' church, and can recall the amount paid for the building and lot, which he did for a Palladium representative yes terday afternoon.

Beneficent Child Labor and Compulsory Education Laws Enacted at Behaat of Organised Workers United Action the Toiler's Only Hope. ' The $100,000 headquarters building of the United Brotherhood of Carpen ters and Joiners of America recently dedicated at Indianapolis ts the first owned by either a national or interna tional anion la America. Frank Mor rison, secretary of the American Fed ration of Labor, delivered . the dedi catory address, part of which was sa follows:.-. We are here today the 22d of July. 1909 to dedicate to the cause of organized labor this beautiful build ing, erected in response to the will of more than 200.000 carpenters, members of the second largest branch of the American Federation of Labor the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America. A building in which its officers will conduct their official business, a shrine which shall stand as a monument to the power and glory of the brother hood, a temple that was erected In its entirety by members of organized la bor, each of whom worked but eight hoars per dsy, thus complying with that shibboleth of the. trades onion sdopted ss a warcry la their straggle for a snorter workday: Slant hours for work. Slant boura for aloap, I Bight hours for wnat wo wflL It might not be amiss to point with pride to s few of the achievements of this organised labor which la praised 00 the one head by those who know what It Is doing to arouse the minds of the wsgeworker to a realization of what can be accomplished by united action and on the other hand la de nounced and derided by those who fesr that each new success of the trades union may mean their undoing and for that reason, and that reason alone, are with relentless hatred en deavoring to destroy the onions and discourage their members. Let me now call your attention to some of the more tangible things that organized labor has done. Is doing and will continue to do as long as the ne cessity for organisation exists. Organized labor baa placed a child labor law on nearly every statute book of every state of this Union. Ono state and two territories have not a child labor law of some character Hawaii. Nevada and New Mexico the three states In which there are the least number of organised workers. Organised labor has compelled the enactment of compulsory education laws and placed free text books In the hands of the pupils; but. my friends, notwithstanding that fact there are to day thousands of our little children of tender years wearing their lives swsy in mines, mills snd factories. In the states where labor onions are weak there yon find that the greed and ava rice of owners of mines, mills and fac tories know no bounds. There the only hope for the salvation and protection of their youth Is that organised Isbor may soon be in s position to go to their rescue. In this city a few years sgo a man with hatred in his heart formed an or ganisation with the avowed purpose of destroying the wageworker's defense against the heartless and pitiless em ployer his union. This man sprang upon the horizon, heralded with glad acclaim by the representatives of ev ery union hating corporation. His false snd malicious denunciations of organized labor were published broad cast In the press of the country. Branches of the organization were formed In every city where a man could be found who bad the slightest antipathy toward organized labor with the expectation that they would bo able to destroy Its strength and power and prevent Its members from secur ing Improved conditions. Attempt aft er attempt was made to make good their proud boast, but the efforts of these destroyers fell by the wayside. The force of their attacks was not suf ficient to turn, let alone stem, the tide and growth of unionism among the workers. After several years of Impo tent effort on the part of this organi sation to destroy the unions we find that the unions still live, snd this union hater, this organiser of discord, this lost soul. , wbo raged over this land screaming out bis hate, is forgot ten. Why? He Is forgotten because every organized body whose solo rea son for existence Is for the purpose of destroying those organizations whoso efforts are for the uplift of humanity and which have brought happiness and contentment to countless thousands will not. must not and cannot long survive in this Christian land of ours. Unionism a Business Proposition. . Trades unionism Is something more than organlzstioa. It is education. One frequent cause for the failure of organised effort Is that there has been insufficient education. It la not enough to bo organised. Each member should know every reason why he is a mem ber of s trsdes union. Trades unionism primarily Is the collective bargaining for the conditions under which labor win be sold. It Is a purely business proposition. Business of say kind to bo successful requires study, snd no tmhjaaa requires more study than the coUocttvo bargaining for labor. - Paid For It.
