U. S. Steel Corporation Faces
New Problem.

Throughout the commercial world
much interest is felt in the exodus of
unskilled labor from Gary, Indiana,
which threatened to seriously embarrass
the United States Steel corporation. Be
ports show that 500 unskilled men have
left the town aud others threaten to
go because ‘ ‘ the lid ” is on tight. While
the service of the compan is not yet
crippled, the possibilities give those in
charge of the plant much concern. The
Indiana Steel company reports $75,000
worth of pay checks cashed in South
Chicago last pay day.
A mass meeting attended by 100 Gary
business men was held last night. Rev.
George Mathews, attorney for the In
diana Anti Saloon league, who was re
sponsible for the saloon ouster in Gary,
declared that he had a couferenee with
Judge E. 11. Gary, chairman of the
board of directors of the steel corpora
tion, last summer in which that official
said that the only way to dispose of i
the saloon and gambling dens was by
remonstrance. He denounced the illicit I
liquor dispensaries and said the “blind
pigs” had been responsible for vice.
A petition was introduced, to be taken
up before the board of commissioners,'
the signers of the document pledging i
themselves that if the remonstrance
against the saloons are withdrawn all I
violations of law by saloon keepers will
be prosecuted.
“It is my opinion,” said H. 8. Nor-'
ton, head of the Gary Land company, 1
“that we cannot have an absolutely
dry town and keep enough labor to op
erate the steel plant here.”
The Gary Land company is a sub
sidiary concern of the steel corpora
tion. Mr. Norton has general charge
of the big tract of land in the town
which was originally purchased by the
steel corporation, divided up into lots,
improved with residences and sold to
the townspeople
Gary became “dry” by what many of
its citizens call a “trick.” There is
in Indiana a statute known as the
Moore remonstrance law. By the pro
visions of this act if a majority of the
voters at the last previous election pe
tition the county commissioners to re
fuse saloon licenses in a township the J
vote is a mandate on the commission
era. Garv was a very small town at!
the time of “the predous election.”!
Only 105 signatures were necessarv to
make Gary and Calumet township dry, ]

Watch Comrades March and Eat Last

I Associated Frets.
New York, Aug. 20.—Au unusual and
j rather striking incident characterized
the last hours at the West Point Mili
tary academy of the seven cadets who
were dismissed from the -nstitution for
! hazing Rolando Sutton, the fourth class
man and brother of the late Lieut. Sut
ton of the marine corps, whose death
was lately the subject of investigation
at Annapolis. Having packed up their
belongings and settled their accounts
with the post officers, the six young
men appeared in the parade ground
just before evening parade. The bugh
sounded and the cadet corps marched
forth upon the field, at one side of which
stood the disgraced youths, unhappily
watching the scene. As the line broke
' into column of platoons to march in re
-1 view, the six youngsters came to a smart
! attention. When the companies were
r marching back into the streets of the
. camp, the former cadets slowly fol
•: lowed to have a last look at their tents.
-(When ranks were broken, the members
',' of the corps gathered around their dis
-11 missed comrades, shook their hands, pat
i ted them on the back and uttered words
- iof encouragement. The six youths were
11 uncertain whether they could enter the
' j mess hall at supper time, but their for
j mer companions insisted on their eat-
I ing a last supper there. It was a mix
ture of sadness and at times jocularity,
for the dismissed men were among the
most popular at the academy. They
were accompanied to the railroad sta-1
tion by dozens of sympathizing cadets
when they left for New York.

although at the moment prohibition be
came effective there were at least 2000
legal voters in the township.
Architects, real estate men, builders
and all those who have to do with the
material upbuilding' of Gary are com
plaining that the reform wave with its
attendant prohibition is hurt'ng their
business. Many contracts which were
in the making for structures of various
kinds have been called off to await de-;
* velopments. i
Preliminary steps have been taken to j
, convert Gary from a town to a eity. An t
election for that pnrnose will be held
in the fall, and it will carry as a mat
। ter of course. Then if the courts do
। not decide in the meantime in favor
| of the liberals as against the ant'-sa-j
loon forces on the “remonstrance” pe
tition, Gary will continue legally dry,
if not actually so, until April. There
i after saloons, under regulations, will
| be in operation.
Fear Its Effect on Trade With
the United States — Some
Manufacturers Hit Hard.
Special Dispatch.
Berlin, Aug. 20.—Dissatisfaction, re
' sentment and anxiety are mingled in the
judgments which the German business
world has been passing on the new
American tariff law. Thus far the de
tailed provisions of the new law are too
little known here to admit of clear con
clusions, but its most important feat
: ures have been cabled over.
Business men are trying to grapple
with the problems it presents. What
the ultimate effects of the measure as
regards trade between Germany and
' America will be and what are the next
steps to be taken by the interested gov
; ernments no one pretends to say.
Men acquainted with the situation
are pinning their hopes on the prospect
that the bill having been passed neither
President Taft, Senator Aldrich, Mr.
Payne, nor any other of the republican
leaders will care to have it kept before
the public by an uncomfortabl'' clam
orous and spectacular trade war, and
will therefore treat with Germany in a
liberal and conciliatory spirit.
The exporters of many commodities,
including certain lines of textiles,
। gloves, stockings, laces, chemicals, lith
, ..graphs, pictures and postcards, are
; deeply dissatisfied. The mercantile
I world generally shares their displeasure.
Men in the leather trade especially are
( aggrieved, as the introduction of free
। hides gives their American competitors
a two fold advantage.
What irritates German exporters,
however, far more than any mere in
crease of duties is the new provision
that valuations on articles not generally
sold in the country of export shall be
determined by American wholesale
prices. This is a feature of the law
which promises to cause the greatest

Chicago, Aug. 20.—Averill Harriman,
son of E. H. Harriman, has started to
learn the railroad business from the
ground up. Young Harriman, aged 18,
is making his start in the direction of
a railway magnate’s commanding po

When his father went to Europe in
search of health Averill had his choice

to go to Europe. He declared that bo

railroads are located as that was th*
