BERLIN WRESTLES WITH PROBLEM OF UNEMPLOYMENT.
One of the problems Herlin is trying to solve is that of insurance against unemployment, assuredly ole of the most difficult and compli cated ever presented to the ingenuity of man: one. too. which, if it could be solved, would diminish enormously the swelling volume of misery and crime, and deprive the ranks of anarchists of many of Its most desperate auxiliaries. Hut with all the will in the world, the Berlin city fathers cannot solve it, and not solely owing to want of means. A commission consisting of so me of their members reports that the chief hindrance lies in the impossibility of ascertaining whether a given case Is one suitable for insurance; that is. whether the unem ployed in fact possesses the will and capacity to work and whether in reality the labor market has work to* offer. The commission considers that an unemployment insurance scheme < only could be carried out by large unions of parishes equipped with a certain amount of compulsory power by the legislature and proposes a congress of municipal representatives from various towns to lay down the fundamental principles to be observed by ail parishes. An institution, the work registry offices, would play an important part in any practical system that might be devised. These offices are . a species of exchange or a labor market, where the unemployed attend and into which pour, chiefly by telephone, offers of employment from firms throughout the city in permanent or temporary need of workers. The officials of the exchanges ar? acquainted with the unemployed nnd their capacity, their family conditions, their place of residence, with its street car connections to the work offering firm or factory! and other details enabling them to act as valuable counselors to tiie attending workmen and work women. The offices are at present only assisted by municipal funds, but the commission suggests that they should be taken over and wholly administered by the municipal au thorities. QUIET WEEK FOR LABOR With the absence of 32 delegates to the state convention, a decided ly quiet week is promised in local labor circles. A good number of the delegates to the convention are officers of the unions represented by them. The quiet here, however, will probably not be noticed be cause of the interest in the news of the doings of the state meeting. Tomorrow at 10 o'clock the con vention proper will be in full swing. The meeting of the business agents and that of the central la bor council will not be interfered with by the absence of the dele gates. The central council will meet tomorrow night as usual, and daily meetings will be held by the business agents in the Pantages hall. CHALOUPKA GOES EAST Frank Chaloupka, the well known member of the local plumbers, steam & gas fitters' union, leaves tomorrow for an extended visit at his old home at Wausan, Wis. Mr. Chaloupka has worked at his trade here for six years, and has been a member of local No. 44 for that •length of time. He has not visited . liis friends and relatives back in Wisconsin during the last nine years, so he will make an extended trip this time, staying all winter. § •• SNOW MAKES WORK -» -While- the fall of snow has had the effect of tying up some of the work about the city, it has at the same time been the means of sup- plying temporary employment for a number of the idle men here, shov eling the fleecy white from the -streets and sidewalks. The free employment and labor unions have been receiving a number of calls for workers to clear the thorough fares. **HE At) QUARTERS FOR ALLIED I The Allied Printing Trades coun cil has not decided to take head quarters in the Wolverton block, -according to a report which recent ly gained circulation. It is stated, however, by Max Demuth, secre tary of the council, that the matter is being considered and will prob ably be decided upon at the next meeting. If the change is made, it is probable that W. D. Wheaton, the secretary of the typographical union, will be employed as secre tary of the allied trades as well. WHAT WILL THE MAYOR SAY? In asking Mayor Pratt for recom mendations regarding the demand on the part of the laborers and . teamsters of the city for a raise of wages, the city council has placed upon that official a weight of re sponsibility. Now all the men who are asking for more wages are wondering what the mayor will recommend. Naturally Mr. Pratt is 1 not willing to give out any state ment regarding the suggestions to • be laid down by him until he can do it officially. The city council will undoubtedly send him the of ficial request on Tuesday night. DELICIOUS Jersey Milk Bread | Is for sale at your grocer's— fresh every day.

THE SPOKANE PRESS, MONDAY, JANUARY 10 Great Hoaxes of History Speaking of Explorer Cook, the Cardiff Giant, Made in Chicago, Fooled a Good Many Persons. | The Cardiff giant, that petrified, prehistoric man hoax, certainly turned things upside down when it was fed to a gullible public in 1868. W. C. Newell, an old farmer of Cardiff, N. V., "found" this speci men of an historic age while dig- ' ging a well. The ligure lay like a giant at rest, with the trunk of a tree gracefully reposing upon its huge breast. News of the wonder ! ful "find" spread throughout the land. The giant made an immediate and enormous stir. Examined, dis cussed and indorsed by many men of scholarly standing, it went with the public as a true specimen of a strange historic being, and proved a big drawing card as a museum freak. PAT CALHOUN'S II SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Jan. 10.— Pat Calhoun, president of the Unit ed Railroads of San Francisco, made two mistakes. Those two mistakes are not the reason for, but explain the reason why, cf San Francisco's recent decision to build, own and operate a two-million-dollar street car line '"rom the bay on the east to the ocean on tha //est, through the heart of the business and residence district. It was this way: Pat Calhoun, last November, saw the people retire from office the men who had been trying to punish him for his part in the San Fran cisco graft scandals, and put in their places men of his own choos ing, and particularly a prosecutor who would protect him from the in convenience, expense and peril of further struggles in court. He thought the people did this because they liked him, Pat Calhoun. That was one mistake. The other one: Pat Calhoun in various tight places had seen money buy a way 1 fITY NEWC \JIN BRIEfO The Scottish Rite Masons will hold memorial services in honor of the tenth anniversary of the birth of Albert Pike, who from 1859 to 1801 was one of the most prom inent Masons in the country.

But the Cardiff giant suffered the misfortune that follows In the wake of popularity—he was imitated, and the business of faking the fake be came exceedingly profitable. P. T. Barnum bought a Cardiff giant— the real one, he claimed —and car ried it about the country for the general edification of wonder seek ers. The Cardiff giant is gone now, nobody knows where. "He" dis appeared from view when it was learned that "he" had been manu factured in Chicago from a block of gypsum sent from Ohio, and secretly buried in New York state to await "discovery" at the hands of a guileless farmer. ; . GREAT MISTAKES out. He had spent millions to de feat justice in the graft cases, hun dreds of thousands to "break" He ney at the polls, hundreds of thou sands more to beat three previous campaigns for municipal ownership of street car lines. His successes in each instance had given him un bounded faith in the power city. He became politician again. He had favored the election of Mayor P. H. McCarthy, who was on the ticket that bent Heney. .Maybe he thought that for that reason he bad his hand on the lever ot the Union Labor party. However that may be, McCarthy came out flatfooted for the bonds. Labor voted with him solidly. THIRTY-ONE THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED OF THE 42 800 SAN FRANCISCANS WHO VOTED DIS REGARDED THE ARGUMENTS, IGNORED THE THREATS, RE FUSED TO BE BULLIED, BE CAME, ACCORDING TO THE CAL HOUN DEFINITION, "POLITICAL HARLOTS AND EXTREMISTS," CAST THEIR BALLOTS AGAINST CALHOUN AND FOR THEM SELVES. That is the story of why and how- San Francisco came to decide to spend $2,000,000 to make the first real test in this country of munici pal ownership, and. operation, ol street car lines. The story of the test and its re sult is still to be written. McCarthy hopes to turn on the power of the city's own system be fore he retires from oh ice His is a greater opportunity even than was that of Eugene E. Schmitz, that other Uhion Labor mayor. P. H. McCarthy is the name. He's going to be well worth watching, is P. 11. McCarthy. in closing she appealed to the audi ence to aid in solving the problem by giving women the right to vote.
