CAUSE FOR ALARM TO OLA88
BLOWERS BECAUSE OF NEW
INVENTION.
PITTSBURG, July 17.?"Get busy I
and discover a plan to meet the win- dow
glass making.'machine on Its onward
course or get out-of the business,"
Is in a nutshell the word that .
Is being passed down the line to the
window glass workers, by their offl- '
! *$. " $v:That
there Is cause for alarm' Is
shown by the fact that during the last
lire, 132 machines, each one of which 1
displaces 10 hand workmen, produced '
1,000,000 50-foot boxes, or almost onehnlf
nt tho antira winrinw fflaas oat
put of the country.
Every machine in nee in this coun- '
try la operated by the American Window
Glass Company. The company
employs no member of the militant union
of window glass workers, the f
Amalgamated Association, with headquarters
in Cleveland, Ohio. All the '
men in this union are employed by the
independent or hand-operating manu
faeturers...
Conflict In both production and
prices, therefore, has been the ruie for I
some time between the machine and |
handoperatlng producers. Up until
the last two fires the Independent manufacturers
have - had the best of the
battle, due to the tact that while the
machine would produce the smaller
sizes satisfactorily; it wMjAJttjjjfcrtij: b
weak [i ill nil Hi lis i iafl.11 'i i n.. 1 ni[l n douBut
all is different now. lAfter many
experiments, the machine has been
perfected and all sizes are produced s
in good quality. The result was, last v
year, that the machine-made product b
was the dominating factor in the mar- e
ket. The workers were, therefore, t
hit both coming and going. Displaced f
by the machine their glass, made in I
independent factories, was thrown a
aside for the product of the Iron man.
Hence the ukase from their leaders, t

CUMBERLAND. Md? July 17.?Emll a
Klemen, aged 85 years, arrived at &
Rockwood, forty miles northwest of h
Cumberland, on a trip afoot from Bal- y
timore. The old gentleman presented t!
a very striking appearance with long
locks of chestnut hair hanging over ?
his shoulders, a.weather-beaten^ but s
strong face and a very happy dlsposl- ti
tlon. He walked from Baltimore to h
Rockwood, 228 miles In 12 days, follow- h
ing the Baltimore and Ohio tracks the
entire distance. He was headed for
Cpnnellsvllle where he expects to
make his home with a daughter. Some
months ago his son-in-law was thrown
out of employment at Cincinnati as the C
result of a striae ana ne since secured .
work at Connellsvllle. Mr. Klemen
walked at the rate ot 19 miles a day.

CLEVELAND. July 17.? Hundreds ?
of lives were Imperiled yesterday, when p
Floyd E. Webber, engineer on a fast v
westbound Lake Shore passenger e
train, was stricken unconscious by j
heat at his throttle, and the train spea
almost into Cleveland without a guldIng
hand. As the engine rooked Into I
the Cleveland yard over the switch J
points the motion threw the engine
driver from his seat to the floor of
the cab.
Then the fireman learned what had
happened. He jumped to the engl- ^
neer's seat, leaving his companion
helpless on the footboards, while he
brought the speed of the train down
within the yard limits.
Webber's condition was found to be
critical.

WANTSJN LEAGUE
AT CONFERENCE LAST NIQHT
MATE its WERE VERY SATISFACTORILY
ARRANGED.
PABKBRSBTJRG, July 17.?After a
conference of sereral hours last night
wlfh^ President C. B. Power, of the
Yeat Penn hue ball league and Tom
Haymond, manager of the Fairmont
team; Manager Herman Krull, of the
Parkerabnrg Professionals, said he
could not announce that the deal to
get Parkerabnrg Into the league had
been closed, but he would say that
the plans are likely to be consummated
within, a week.
President Power thinks Parkersburg
should be a winner, and soya he would
rather hare It In the league than a
aozen lowns iikb somerset, m., wmon
Is,to be dropped. He and Haymond
arrived from Fairmont early last evening
and departed after midnight They
were met at the Chancellor by Mauager
Krull, Captain. Poland and several
others. President Power waa
very enthusiastic over the proposltloa
The president said he would be
greatly pleased, to have Parkersburg
join the league, and that he wou.d
give this city a franchise free of
charge. The other cities In the league
have jjaid considerable for their franchise,
but this Is the Becond season of
this summer fft; the West Penn and:
the teams are willing to let Parkersburg
try It without cost The only
drawback now is to find a suitable
th'e'proper party, however, and expects
a definite anBwer to-night.
At a meeting of the members of th<
local ball team the members agreed
to go Into the league on a percentage
basis. If the team makes any money
they will get an equal share. If It loses
they are out the same as the manager
nd others to be connected -with the
team.
, It the team joins the league it will
play as many games away from home
as at home and will play here every |
Sunday. Sundy ball it not permitted
In Pennsylvania, but It goes in this
State, and as & result President Power
will fix the schedule so that Parkersburg
will play at home every Sunday.
Visiting teams are assured or $40, or
they can take 40 per cent, of the gate
receipts. They pay their own expenses
at all times. To make any money it
Is absolutely necessary that a team
get good support at home, and It is
thought the Parkersburg team would
likely have the biggest crowds in the
league. On Sunday the crowds should
Dot be less than a couple of thousand,
snd it so the local team could afford
to play to some small crowds away
Erom home.
Only two games have been played
by each team in the league, and 1L
Parkersburg can get started in a week
it will be able to fill the schedule which
s for almost 56 games and will Insure
local base ball until late in September.
