Member of the Associated Press "OPEN SHOP" FOR SHINGLE MILLS ABERDEEN MILL MEN MEET TO REVOLUTIONIZE MANUFAC TURE OF SHINGLES SO AS TO PERMIT OF NON-UNION LABOR Aberdeen, Sept. 24. —As a result of the shingle weavers' strike now in progress on Grays harbor and having for its object the complete revolutionizing of the shingle indus try not only in Chehalis county but throughout the entire Pacific coast i and entailing the expenditure of more than $100,000 by Chehalis county manufacturers alone, a move ment has been started by shingle manufacturers here which, it is de- I dared, will have a far reaching effect ! and will result in placing all mills I not only here but along the coast on !an "open shop" basis. The project lin effect provides for the substitution of upright machines for all hand, | single, double and ten-block ma chines in every shingle mill in the I county. } It is declared that all owners i whose mills are not now equipped ! with the uprights have agreed to ' make the change at once and that orders have been placed within the past two days for more than 70 ma chines. The installation of uprights will do away, it is said, with knot sawyers, who. the shingle manufac turers declare, have been one of the principal causes of dissatisfaction among the men. The plan which the manufacturers have adopted, accord ing to the statement made today by a prominent member of their organ ization, is this: "Install upright ma chines in all the mills," place two packing frames for each machine, run the mills at about half their ca pacity and employ unskilled labor ro pack the shingles at a daily rate wage in place of the piece rate as now prevails. By this method the shingle men declare that they will be able to operate their mills and be free from outside interference * A Modem Bowling Alley. W. H.

WOULD CUI OUT MOB LAW SECRETARY DICKENSON ASKS THE SOUTH TO PROTECT THE NEGRO AND LET THE COURTS PUNISH. Nashville. Term.. Sept. 24. —Speak- ing today at the Tennessee state fair, Secretary of War J. M. Dickenson paid a high tribute to the executive ability of President Taft and then went into the race problem. Mr. Dickenson said in part: "It is idle to talk of a settlement of the negro question in the sense that all agitation and controversy will cease. The courts, and not mobs, should punish lawbreakers. Negroes should be protected in their property rights, settled with justly and gov erned by the constituted authorities. The cankering virus of mob rule, no matter against what evils directed, destroys all wholesome life in the body politic and makes it a polluted wreck, swayed by passion and in capable of the ordinary administra tion of law. "There can be no wholesale control of the negro question of a perma nent character that does not appeal to the sense of justice of the people of all the states. "It is unfortunate for the south that some of her people irritate the minds of and repel those who are In clined our way and are leaders of public thought, by sanctioning law less brutality. Some of the most en lightened among the negro race coun sel their people to abstain from poli tics and to apply themselves to the offices of good citizenship. They in dicate a willingness to withdraw from political affiliation, but ask jus-j tice. protection and orderly adminis tration of the law. "Men of character and patriotism throughout the south could not serve their people better than by making a peaceful sentiment so overwhelming that the lawless will find that they are regarded as the greatest of ene mies to the welfare of the south."

Dal lam has tendered his resignation as confidential secretary to Gov. M. E. Hay to take effect as soon as a suit able man can be found to fill his place. Mr. Dallam was formerly private secretary to Governor Mead, succeeding Ashmun Brown the last year of Mead's term of office. When Hay. as lieutenant governor, took the office of governor, before Cosgrove's death, Howard Cosgrove was appoint ed secretary. Young Cosgrove, how ever, resigned after his father's death and Mr. Dallam was appointed to fill the vacancy. It is an open secret that Governor Hay and Mr. Dallam have never been as close to each other as were the former governor and his secretary. Mr. Dallam has been extremely useful to the governor through his wide po litical acquaintance and unfailing tact and courtesy. Consequently his place will be a hard one to fill. There are numerous applicants for the po sition but Hay has not been able to find a man who has knowledge of political aaffirs and also has a per sonal appearance as well as the gift of guiding through intricate places as had Mr. Dallam. Although Dallam's resignation was tendered some time ago Hay finds it difficult to induce a really desirable man to accept the position of private secretary. Mr. Dallam, although quite a young man. states that he has seen enough of politics to convince him that it is not a career which he wishes to follow and he announces his intention to go into business for himself, probably in Seattle, when he is relieved of his duty as private secretary.
