Philadelphia is going to try women
street car conductors.
Labor is interested in a report eman
ating from London to the effect that
the Cuban conference consisting of
European shipping lines trading with
Cuba will increase freight rates after
April 1. If such rates are put into
effect there will in all probability be
a demand for an increase in pay from
the employes of the lines benefitting
from same.
—o—
Next Wednesday the soft coal min
ers' representatives and operators
will hold a conference in Chicago. It
has been said that in case the an
thracite miners strike the bituminous
operatives will stick to their jobs, for
a double strike would be too severe
a strain upon the resources of the
union treasury. The men, however,
working in both the hard and soft coal
fields say that they are determined
to have their demands met. The op
erators, it is believed, will grant an
in rease in pay quicker than they
will grant recognition of the closed
shop.
—o—
During the first few days of the
miners' strike in Great Britain the rail
roads lost $000,000 a day, and the cut
ting off of trains to reduce expenses
added only perplexity to the situation.
Newcastle is suffering from a coal
famine and "carrying coals to New
castle," will become a fact, that is if
coal can be obtained anywhere. The
government has asked the gas and
electricity companies everywhere to
report on the extent of their stocks of
coal. The post office has ordered the
most rigid economy in all departments
in the use of fuel.
—o—
That more than 1,000 Japanese wo
men, posing as "picture brides," have
been admitted to the United States
through the port of San Francisco
within the past year, and that those
same "picture brides" are now taking
the places of white women in laun
dries, restaurants an dhomes, is the
claim of leaders of organized labor in
California. The Asiatic Exclusion
League has asked Commissioner of
Immigration S. W. Backus to see that
agents of the government in San Fran
cisco rigidly enforce the law prohibit
ing the entrance into the United States
of diseased Asiatics.
—o—
The Great Northern Railway will
operate small farms for 500 farmers
along both sides of the Red River Val
ley in Minnesota and North Dakota,
and in sections of eastern Montana
this year, taking charge of 10 acres in
each case, furnishing free seed and
guaranteeing a return of $8 an acre.
Prof. N. F. Crane, a graduate of the
Michigan Agricultural College, will
have general charge of the work. He
and his assistants will put in the crops
most suitable and give practical dem
onstrations of the latest and most ef
fective methods of farming. The pur
pose is to show the farmers how they
can increase the production and pro
fits of the soil.
LOOT BANK
Mexican General Takes 20,000 Ptsos
From Juarez Bank.
El Paso, Texas, March 9.—General
Rojares has looted the Juarez branch
of the National Bank of Mexico of
20,000 pesos which remained in its
vaults. This was admitted today by
E.j Fernandez Alonzo, manager of the
branch bank. The outer door of the
vault was wrenched off with crowbars
and the inner door dynamited. Rojares
declares that the money belongs to the
government and that he is its proper
custodian. This is denied by Alozo,
who is of Spanish subject. Most of
the funds of the bank were removed
at the time the garrison mutinied.

stowed away in the White House port
folio than he has received on any re
cent trip, President Taft passed thru
