ning of the partial disability, not to ex
ceed $p0.07 per month.

SCORNED BY WORKERS
Detroit. Judge Van Zile trudged up
the long stairs to the county jail and
offered freedom to five striking pattern
makers, who have been jailed by him
for violating an injunction, if they
would promise to discontinue picketing.
When Judge Van Zile sentenced these
workers he thundered on the sacrcdncss
of property and personal liberty which
cost this nation billions of dollars to
But this wise and fearless expounder
of justice, who told his victims he is a
candidate for re-election, is shown in an
other light as he offered freedom on his
terms. "I thought you'd like to get in
the Labor Day parade tomorrow," he
The pattern makers said thev would
give him a reply later, and when their
visitor had retired they jointly signed
the following letter and forwarded it to
Judge Van Zilc's residence by special
"Relative to your conference with us
this afternoon, we submit the following
answer to your proposition to release us
from jail after being confined here for
14 days, to-wit:
"Under np consideration will we sur
render our constitutional rights to sat
isfy any employer of labor.
"We hold that no one man has the
right to deny us the privilege of passing
any shop whether on strike or not, or to
prevent us from talking to any man with
the object in view of joining our organ
ization to better his condition in life."
Detroit. Judge Connolly has ordered
the release of five strikine; pattern mak
ers on bonds of $500 each until the su
preme court passes on the decision of
Judge Van Zile, who fined and sen
tenced these unionists to jail for violat
ing an injunction not to picket or visit
the homes of strikebreakers.
Judge Connolly's order was contested

1)ANGKHS IX MATTRESS MAKING.
Albany, N. Y. The state commission,
acting under authority of a law passed
by the last legislature, is attempting to
enforce sanitary conditions in the mat
tress industry. In a recent speech to
manufacturers of bedding, Dr. Roos,
medical inspector of the department of
labor, said :
"Early in my work I noted the large
percentage, of- disease among' the men
employed in mattress .factories and pre
sented the facts to the bureau of indus
trial hjgicne which ordered a survey
made and my department visited all
the larger plants in New York city, 97
in all, and the conditions we found were
simply appalling. In most of the plants
dust lay thick on the floors, machines,
walls and even on the ceilings the very
atmosphere was permeated with it and
fully 20 per cent, on an average, of
the workmen were suffering from tuber
culosis while others had various forms
of skin and eruptiv'e diseases. Some of
the factories were in cellars, others in
converted tenement houses, former
stables, etc.. and few had any adequate
system of ventilation or proper toilet
"In many factories there were piles
of second-hand mattresses laying around
which the manufacturers said were to be
remade for private parties, etc., and in
one place we found about 73 mattresses
that had come from a Bowery lodging
house and you can imagine the dirt,
hltli, vermin and disease they carried.
There can be no doubt that these mat
tresses were to be made up not for pri
vate parties, but as part of new goods."
