HOW
IT LOOKS
The holdcr of a matured Endowruent Policy in the Equitablo Society
Bentla the following graphio illustration of his feelings: "Twenty
years ajjo whcn I wbb induced by a porsistent agent to take out my
Endowment IVlicy, the premium looked very large and appcared to
me liko this:
$49.79
While tho Endowment, looked at through thejwrong end of the
telefcope of twenty years, appeuroJ like this:
Sl ,000.00
Now, my policy haa tnatured, and coming just when'I neod monny,
t ntiii ol my policy lookslike this:
$1,568.02
While, looking back at the annual premiuras I have paid, aud retiliz
lii g that they are arnouiita that would have"beei) savod m no other

The heariugln tho case of State agalnat
Winfred Boaworth was bogun in city

and F. P. Carleton nppeared for the Stato
and F. L. Lalrd for tho reapondent.
lt appears tuat wltliln tlie past year and
a half Mr. Crosa' store at Gouldsvllle has
been entorod several tlmes and pettv bur-

dor which Boaworth was arrested the date

which ls allowed by theatatuteof Umita
tlons and Introduced ovldence in counec
tion with the burglary which was perpo-
trateu on tne store on tne nignt ot Tilav 4.
1888. Thla movo on tho part of the State
dlaconcorted the plans ofdefenco which had
been made by tne reapondenl's couuael as
ho had preparod to furnish an allbl for hia
cllent on the llrst named date.
Only two witneasea for the Stata were
examlued, Mr. Crosa, the proprietor of the
storo, and Eugeno Robbiua, hla clork.
Thelr testimony, which was corroboratlve
in all essentlal poiuts, waa ln suustance as
follows: Boaworth waa employed as a
stonecutter in Gonldaville and was a regu
lar customer at the store, where ho had a
runnlng account, aettling the stme aa he
recolved hla pay from tlme to tlme. He
waa on intlmateterms with both wltneaaea,
Bpending conBlderablo of hls sparo time
about tbo store and on occaeions when
short of money would borrow amall
auiounts of Mr. Gross or Mr. Robblns. Pre
vioua to the robbery ln May, 1898, Boa
worth had boon ovt of work and had told
the wltness on soveral occaslons that ho
waa strapped. 'On the night of May 4,
1898, ho was the last except tbo proprietor
to leave the store.
The nezt mornlng It was found that the
store had beon outorod by nieans ot a rear
wlndow. The bottom of the money drawer
hadbeen cut through and opened and about
four dollars in pennlos, flve and ton cont
piecea besldeB nearly a full box of Black
atone clgara. Among the colna takon wero
Bome mutllated onea, which were kept
apartfrom the otliers, aomo of wblch were
very famillar in thelr marklnga to the wlt
neaaea. Later Boaworth made a cajh pur
chaae at the atore for which ho paid in cotn
of tbo doscrlptloa taken, so far as denoml
natlon was concernod and each witness re

Tho cutters at tho Capltal Granlto Corn
pany's Bhod havo boon orilered to qult
work, and Motiday thoy went out. Tliua
aomo twenty skillod wurkmon, ablo to oarn
good wages. are dobarrod from working at
thelr trade In this shed, orlu fact any other,
for uo meuiber of tho Manufacturors' As
soolatlon, of which T. W. Eagau, tho mau.
agor of tho Capltal Granlte Company la a
meuiber, wlll hlro theso men who aro or.
derod out,
Tho trouble aroso over ono man, who,
somo tlmo last Juno, hlrod to Mr. Eagan as
a flratclass cutter. After he had been at
work a few days, Mr. Eagau becatuo con
vinced that he was not an avorage cutter.
Uo said as niuch to tho man and lntlmated
to hlm that he sliould havo to dlschargo
hlm, as he could not affurd to pay hlm even
tho mlnlmum Union achedule prico of
twonty-nlne cents per hour. The man beg
god the prlvllogo of working, atattng that
he had not worked at hla trade for the paat
ten montha, at tho aatne tlmo dlsplaylng
tho palms of hls handa which woro badly
bllstored. He offered to work for twenty
flve cents per hour it Mr. Eagan wonld give
hlm work. Mr. Egan consented and tlme
rolled on, the man accoptlng hia pay at the
rato named and appeared contonted. But
about tbo latter part of July, tho man notl
11 od Mr. Eagan that ho should demand
twonty-nlne cents por hour at the next pay
day. Whon offered his check on tho basin
of twontyflve cents per hour he refused to
tako It and Mr. Eagan decllned to pay hlm
more. Tho man took hls trouble to the of
llcor a of tho Union and tho matter was re
ferred to the grlevanco committoo, which is
made up of an equal number from the
Union aud the Manufacturera' Aaaoclation.
The committee waited on Mr. Eagau who
lnformed the members that ho was willlng
to ablde by thelr arbitratlon in the matter,
thla being the uaual courae in auch dlffer
encos. But the Union half ot tho committoo was
unablo to come to an agreement wlth the
Aaaoclation half and flnally lnformed Mr.
Eagan that he muat grant the dlasenting
cnttor's request, or hls force ot cutters
would be ordered out. Mr. Eagan said he
was willlng to ablde by a decialon of the
committeo aa a wholo but would not sub
mlt to the dlctation of a dlvided commlttoe,
and as a resnlt his men are out and hts
buslneaa crippled. UIs only remedy ap
pearB to be to submit or to get the Assocla
tlon to declare a general lockout untll his
mon are aent back to work: and lt ls said
that this lattor courae is being ndvocated
among the inanufactarers.
The men ordered out ure loud ln thelr de
nunciatlons of the men on tho Union com
mittee who brought this thiug to pass.
They say the man over wLoui all this
trouble ls being made la not a nrat ciasa
workman, never joinod tbe Union untll af
ter he had started this trouble and that Mr.
Eagan has acted honorably wlth this man
and all others ln hls employ. They say
they attended the meetlng of the local
branch of the Union last Saturday night
and triod to oxplaln the sltnatlon to the
members preaent but wero not permitted to
bo heard.
They declare the Union is being run by a
rlng which abuae lts power to fnrther its
aplto and aolllah ends while they, the lay
members, are powerleaa toola, and should
this boycott last they will havo to abovel ln
order to support thelr famillea.
wnen askeu wny tuey uidn't ooit in tuiB
Inatance agalnat the order ot the Union,
the men stated that for varioua reasons this
would be ot no avall.
The altuatlon la one to bo regretted by
both partlea involved and it ls hoped that
an amlcablo eettlement may be arrlvod at
at an early date.
The grievance committee comprlsed of
Chairman Williain Alezander, A. E. Bruce
and JainoS Brown of Barro from the Manu
facturer's Asaociation and Chairman P. F.
Glynn, M. J. Doyle and W. II. McCormlck
of the local branch of tbe Stonecutters'
Union met on Tuesday at tho otllce of the
Capltal Granlto Company tor the purposo
of arhttratlng tho difllculty between the
company and David Moylo, the workman,
on whose account the cutters ln that shed
were ordered out Monday afternoon.
T. W. Eagan throw open tho company's
books for tho inapectlon of the committee
aud from them lt waa ahown that Mr.
Eagan had allowed tho man four houra'
time moro than he had clalmed to havo
worked. Mr. Eagan alao called tho attou
tion of tho Uniou's committee to the record
In hls books wbere this man and another
had porformed the same plecu of work, he
paying Moyle at the rato of twontyflve
cents por hour and the latter twenty-nlno
aud one half cents per hour, and that the
latter performed hls work at a cost of soine
two dollars less than the cheeper pald mau,
Tho committee when usked lt the higher
pald man was not the cheapor man to bire
argued that this tnan had done too mnch
work for his money. Tho commlttees ar
gued Moyle's caBo pro and cou uutll after
1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon before a Unal
agreement waa reached which was as fol
lows: "Tho deciaion of the committee in tho
caso of T. W. Eagan v. David Moylo Is that
he be pald nccordlng to the blll of prlces on
what work is covered by the hill of prlces
which amounts to twenty-eight centa per
hour for the tlme he worked aa shown by
Mr. Eagan's books which 1b 180 houra.
Slgned,
Wllllatn Alezander, ) Chairman
of
P. F. Glynn, Commlttoea."
Mr. "Eagau then drew a check for the
amount in favor of tho committoo from the
Union to whom Moyle had givon an order
on Mr. Eagan for his pay and thus the un
nleasantness was settled, althongh the
Union half ot the oommlttee made larce
oon:esaions from;the rato perjhuur flrst de-
uianueu uy mem.
At the beginnlng of the coaimittee's le
Uberations this mornlng, it was agreed by
both sldes that the cutters who were out
ahoQld be ordered back to work this noon
pending the result of the arbitratlon. When
the affair was flnally adjusted, tho men
waro ut worK as uanai.
