PAGE EIGHT T f1iy Ctoeamof Tartar : It Is Probable That Plainfield Authorities May Insist on Custody of the Lad To Try Loftus. Several Interesting points and con tentions have arisen as a result of the arrest of Frank Townsend and Char les Loftus for the theft of approxi mately $108 and valuable papers from the safe of the Commons Dairy com pany, South Fifth street, Sunday night. Townsend Is out on parole from the boy's reformatory at Plainfield and this morning was sentenced by Judge Fox to the Jeffersonvllle reformatory for grand larceny for a term of one to fourteen years. A charge of burg lary was not placed against Town- send because Judre Fox and prosecut ing attorney, Charles Ladd believe the burglary sentence too severe. Whether Townsend belongs to the authorities at the Plainfield Reform school or to the Jeffersonvllle reform atory authorities, in a question which has many complications. . Town Bend was sentenced by Judge Fox of the juvenile court in 1907 to the reform school at Plainfield to serve an in definite term for larceny and general Incorrigibility. The commitment pa pers read that Townsend was a ward of that institution until he became of age. However, after serving a little more than a year at the school, ho was paroled on good behavior and re turned to this city. Violates His Parole. His parole was violated by bis act of grand larceny Sunday night and he could have been returned to the re form school without a trial. The lo cal authorities decided, however, to arraign him and this morning when brought before Judge Fox, he entered a plea of guilty, also waiving right for a trial by jury or to have his caae presented by a counsel. He said it was no use. He was then asked, as to his age and he replied nineteen years. Judge Fox could do nothing else but send him to the Jefferson vllle reformatory for grand larceny. He could not ht.ve been sent back to the Plainfield reform school' by Judge Fox, in the opinion of the court, because Townsend was above the age limit. After a person is found guilty of a felony and is over eighteen years of age, he can not be sent to the reform school, although if one is sent to this institution before he is eigh teen, he may be kept in confinement there until he is of age. Judge Fox has instructed that Townsend be held for several days. The local authorities have also decid ed not to notify the Plainfield author ities and ask them to come after Townsend. It is understood that the Plainfield authorities were notified by Townsend's relatives of his violation of his parole and it is probable that the Plainfield authorities will demand his custody. Will Walt a Week. Unless the Plainfield authorities do send after Townsend in the next week or so. Sheriff Meredith said today, he in all probability would take Town send to the Jeffersonvllle reforma tory. Charles Loftus, who was implicated with Townsend in the theft of the money and who received, a portion of the amount stolen, Is confined at the county jail. It has not been decided A WARNING Since its introduction into the United States, the sales of Parisian Sage have been phenomenal. This success has led to many Imitations similar in name Look out for them, they are not the genuine. See that the girl with the Auburn hair is on every package. You s can always get the genuine at I HL Fine's. Parisian Sage is the quickest acting and most efficient hair tonic In the world. - ' It Is made to conform to Dr. Sanger bond's (of Paris) proven theory that dandruff, falling hair, baldness and scalp itch are caused by germs. Parisian Sage kills these dandruff germs and removes all trace of dan druff In two weeks; it stops falling hair and itching scalp and prevents baldness. '.,vv. And remember that baldness is caus ed by dandruff germs, those little hard working, persistent devils that day and night do nothing bat dig into the roots of the hair and destroy its vitality. Parisian Sage is a daintily perfumed hair dressing; not sticky nor greasy, and any woman who desires luxuriant and bewitching hair can get It in two weeks by using It. Beware of Imitations, look for the girl With the Anburn hair on every tackage. Parisian Sage is now sold by leadtas ncs!su all over America and Is gosraateed by L. H.

Loftus and Townsend both declared yesterday that Lof tus's share of the stolen goods was 50 cents, but yester day, it is alleged he was overheard to tell his mother, Mrs. Michael Lof tus, that he had thrown his share In a sewer. This story is . not credited by the authorities, who believe that he has hidden it somewhere. He will be "sweated" in an effort to be made to tell the hiding place of the money. A search warrant for the purpose of searching his parents' home may be issued. - The home of Frank Townsend will also be searched, according to the authorities. . . , KOLP SCHOOL OF DANCING.

The rays of heat and light are quite Independent of each other in their abil ity to penetrate different substances. For illustration, glass allows the sun's heat to pass through as readily as it does the rays of light, and that without heating the glass too. If the glass be coated with lampblack, however, the rays of light are arrested, but the heat passes through as before, not a single degree's difference in the latter phe nomenon being noticeable. Then, again, both heat and light pass through wa ter, provided it is clear. One of the oddities in this connection is this: Al though the heat and light pass through water in its normal state, the addition of a little powdered alum, which readi ly dissolves without leaving the least mnrkiness. will arrest the rays of heat to such an extent as to almost Immedi ately raise the temperature of the wa ter to a perceptible degree, yet the light continues to pass through as before. ; Ice, like . glass, also transmits both heat and light. Dr. Sutherland In "Ob servations Upon the Icebergs of Baf fin's Bay" says: "Several pieces of granite were found deeply imbedded In Ice without any communications with outside air. These were all sur rounded with what might be termed an atmosphere of water." t; TJe ex planation of such an oddity Is this: The heat passing through the ice bad been absorbed by the stones until their tem perature had been raised to a degree sufficient to melt the ice around them EARLHAM ORATORIO SOCIETY. The Earlham Oratorio society has been reorganized by Professor E. P. Trueblood with Professor Cleveland K. Chase as director. The society will be composed of about sixty-five persona and will begin at once to prac tice for a cantata to be given soon. At this time they ; will present the Messiah by Handel. No doubt this af fair will prove to be one of the most delightful treats of the winter's music schedule. DRAGS ONJPROGRESS Fair Weather Unionists Retard Labor's Advance. MENDICANTS OF INDUSTRY. Workers Who Are Willing to Accept Benefits From Trades Organizations Without Aiding In Their Support. Loyal to No Principle. In a recent strike by women, the pur pose being to secure an increase of wages from SS to $10 per week, several of the youug women involved were conversing upon the subject In a street car. says a writer in Shoe Workers' Journal. The main idea of this group was bow best to secure the raise in wages and at the same time avoid paying dues to the union. To secure a raise In wages through a union and then refuse to support the union that secured the raise is not new. but this is the first time the writer ever knew of a plan being con cocted to avoid all obligations to the union which was to secure the raise even before the raise bad been secured It did not seem to occur to these young women that the two dollar weekly increase was worth having or that, inasmuch as it required a union to obtaiu it, it mlgbt also require a un ion to protect or retain It. Nor is tbis idea peculiar only to these young women. Working people have always been too prone to avail themselves of the strength of labor unions temporarily for the purpose of redressing the more pressing grievances of the immediate present and. having accomplished this much, then abandon . the union until menaced by some new oppression. In the meantime it often suits their fancy to speak disparagingly of the union as being "weak" or "no good." when, as a matter of fact. If the union is weak it is simply and solely because those who are under obligations to it and who are morally bound to support it have refused to give it any support. A beggar, is one who solicits alms while offering nothing in return and is sometimes styled a mendicant. A wage earner who tries through onion to get advanced wages and who avoids giving anything to the union In re turn may properly be termed an In dustrial mendicant. These Industrial mendicants are very largely responsible for the fluctuations to the membership of trades unions. They flock in temporarily when there la a melon to be cut In the shape of a raise In wages, and as soon as the raise is secured they flock oat again. - If all the wage earners who ever joined the unions remained true mem bers labor would be nearly completely organised or perhaps wholly. The precentage organized would be so very large that to be a nonunionlst would be unfashionable and perhaps uncomfortable, and all remaining out side the anion would join. - The industrial mendicants are quite npjneron in. the ah . trade- They Mme. Mary Garden. have niaue au uiieiiviau.V niuril .. being iu and out of all unions uiuu; times, but loyni to none. They bare retarded organization to : remarkable degree, for the reason th.i whenever business conditions make for extension of the union membershli the first work to be done is to gatbci in the industrial mendicants once more and in doing this much valuable tlux is consumed. If the trades unions were able to holt their gains lu membership from seasoi to season, so that the gains made ii the new sensou would be net gains progress would be much faster and op portunities to improve wages and cou ditlons would be vastly more numerous Those members who are conscien tlous in the discharge of their oblign tions to the union, both as regards pay ment of dues Nnd the rendering of per sonal support nnd service to the unior cause. should realize the enormous damage the movement suffers from the Industrial mendicaut. The greatest service any and ail good and active members of trades unions can render Is to arouse these thought less, indifferent or dishonest members to a true sense of their union duty and thus by ridding the union of tbe indus trial mendicaut multiply the chances of trades union success. Look over your membership roils, see bow many are inactive and try to de vise some way of getting them back in line. Home For Pressmen. The special committee of tbe Inter national Printing Pressmen's union has decided to buy at Hale Springs, near Rogersville, Tenn.. a site for homes for tubercular and superannuated members. Tbe site la 3.500 feet above tbe sea level in tbe Allegheny moun tains. LABOR NOTES.

Indianapolis, Sept. 29. Tbe Third battalion,; Tenth infantry, will leave its Quarters at Ft. Benjamin Harrison on Friday for a two hundred-mile prac tice march in eastern Indiana. This march will be of interest for the ex periments that aro to be made with a new marching .equipment just issued by the wax department. Instead of the o!a blanket roll, fa miliar as a part of the equipment of the modern soldier, the soldiers will return to the have; fack idea and carry the marching outfit on their backs in stead of around their shoulders. The haversacks are of a new design that are intended to contain a recently in vented combination sleeping tent and poncho, each soldier carrying a tent for himself instead of half a tent as heretofore. The half-a-tent plan is held as im practical because it frequently occurs that the soldier with tbe other half of tbe tent is . on detached duty and can not match up his half with that carried by his comrade. Then both suffer hardship. The new tents are triangular in share and will afford one man comfortable sleeping quart ers. Other equipment is to be tried out on the practice march, which will continue as far east as Richmond, then swing around to Shelbyville and back to the post. To Take Riding Test. Another interesting exodus from Ft. Harrison is to begin on Friday, when several officers will begin a three days' riding test required by the war department. Three years ago Presi dent Roosevelt Issued an order that all army officers be required to ride ninety miles in tbe saddle in three consecutive days, this to be a test of their endurance and horsemanship. The riders are to be examined by the army surgeons before departing and again undergo examination after the return. Colonel Green and other offi cers of the post who have not already had tests this summer will ride out of the post with the Third battalion and go into camp with the troops at Cumberland on the first night. On the second day the officers under test will leave the troops and make their day's journey over a route that will make it possible for them to return to Ft Harrison that night. The third day's ride will be from the post via a new route. It Is expected the battalion will ar rive in Richmond Sunday or Monday and will go into camp at Glen Miller. The battalion will participate in the local fall festival. THE COWARDLY QUITTER. He Cuts a Poor Figure In the Trades Union Movement. To successfully fight the battles of labor requires courage of a high order. The wage earner without means who goes ou strike for more pay or to resist reductions In wages and does it with out flinching is brave. It is such as these who have made unionism what it is today. It sometimes requires or has requir ed high moral courage to even be iden. tilled with unionism In localities where hostile commercial Interests are In con trol and are unscrupulous enough to manipulate the police, tbe courts and the law to serve their ends regardless of the rights of citizens. Sometimes In strong union centers fee fin g among union men may run high upon a certain Issue, and to hold views opposite to the majority may be unpopular, but If a member is honest in his conviction be Is entitled to re spect, provided be Is not running coun ter to tbe law of bis union. It is the strong men with tbe cour age of their convictions who have re fused to be scared by the employers or by commercial interests or by their fellow workers who have built up tbe anion movement. Tbe quitter never won a strike nor established a right nor a union nor caused a principle to be adopted. The quitter seeks to avoid trouble even by abject surrender. He seeks to sugar coat the union pill to tickle the palate of commercial in terests regardless of tbe rights In volved. In controversial matters, when bis associates divide sharply In opposing groups, be seeks some middle or com promise ground in tbe vain hope that be can please both sides and conse quently has the respect of neither. He bss tbe brains of a jellyfish and tbe backbone of an angleworm. He is deeply susceptible to flattery, and s pat on the back by employing In terests will cause bis chest to expand wonderfully. Like s steam engine without a gov ernor, be has no control over bis own speed, and. while a glimmer of reason might tell him he had a conviction and ought to fight for It. his legs will run away with him faster than he can think. If ft fa a strike be Is liable to come in tbe back deor before the last of his associates have gone out by tbe front. In a controversy among his' associ ates he can perform tbe acrobatic stunt of sitting on a fence and hang ing over both sides at one and tbe same time. He is not of tbe staff of which mar tyrs are made. He has not a single heroic figure Ja thejjfrtorjvjf thrwiwle JworUL. , Men ofX-ouvk-iioii. irituriMnw. of rw olutlen. deirmiuaitna and tenacity, are tbe ones wbo make history. The quitter Is ef very little use any where and least of all In the trades union movement. His vacillating views and sail trim ming methods win for him tbe con tempt of bis associates.
