EIGHT-HOUR PUNK ROUNDLY CONDEMNED St. Paul Merchants and Manu facturers Protest Work of State Republicans I must decline to discuss the eight-hour plank in the Repub lican state platform. I shall dis cuss political issues when I take the stump this fall.—United States Senator Moses E. Clapp. The Republican party of Minnesota, through the insertion of a plank in its state platform making an eight-hour day compulsory in. private manufac tories engaged in contract work for °the government, has alienated from its Bupport a large and influential element In the business interests of the state. The manufacturers and jobbers of St. Paul do not hesitate to condemn the plank in unequivocal terms and char acterize the men who are responsible for the incorporation of the plank in the state platform as little short of demagogues. Men engaged in manu facturing and in the larger business enterprises throughout the state un doubtedly are of the same opinion, though ,they have not been given the same opportunity of expression that their fellows in St. Paul have been tendered. "With absolute unanimity St. Paul manufacturers and wholesale mer chants, seen by The Globe, pro nounce the eight-hour plank a prop osition of political economics unworthy a place in the Republican state plat form, supposedly the work of men of political sagacity and business acumen. Almost to a man the men engaged in the larger business operations in St. Paul are members of the Republican party and they have contributed to it in the past not only of their time and influence, but have given largely from their purses to bring about its success at the polls. Plank Has Aroused Many Judging from the tone of interviews obtained yesterday these men, while not foreswearing allegiance to the na tional party and its policies, will re fuse to support either by their influ ence or by campaign contributions the Republican organization in Minnesota in the campaign of 1904, and their hos tility to the state ticket is directly traced to the incorporation of the plank recommending an eight-hour day, and which says: "The Republican party of Minnesota recommends that eight hours may be considered a day's work in all works controlled by public authority."' The plank is construed by the man ufacturers and jobbers to mean a dec laration of an eight-hour day on all work in which the government has an interest, and to be the entering wedge in the movement for a universal eight hour day in the Uniied States. As one jobber so clearly points out, Minnesota is an agricultural state; the great mass of Its producers till the soil. The es tablishment of an eight-hour day for labor in manufactured articles means that the manufacturer must put an ad ditional price to the cost of his article, and that the farmer and consumer must pay this added cost. The farmer Is unable by any process of legislation to decrease his working hours, now much longer than the man employed in a factory or store, and legislation is equally ineffective in Increasing the price that his products can bring in the open market. The farmer therefore ■will have to bear the burden of the cost if the eight-hour day becomes an actuality, while the export trade of the Northwest will suffer Immeasurably in the changed conditions. Clapp Refuses to Talk Senator Moses E. Clapp refused last night to discuss the plank. The sen ator at his home was affable, but stub bornly refused to talk on the plank put in the platform adopted by a con vention over which he presided. "I must refuse to discuss the plank " he said in reply to an inquiry for his position o n the eight-hour pronounce ment of his party in this state. "No I will not be led into an argument either . for or against it. You may say that I shall discuss political issues when I take the stump this fall." The inference was that then he might have something to say pertinent to the plank which has caused such a furore in Republican circles and brought down upon its authors and sponsors the condemnation of nearly every man of influence in the party It is known to a practical certainty that Senator Clapp knew nothing of the existence of such a plank until State Sonator George R. Laybourn brushed his hirsute curtains carefully away and began to read the resolutions pre sented by the committee on resolu tions, of which he was chairman. Sen ator Clapp had been given a copy of D. & B.s 20 Off Means More Than You Imagine When we say "20 per cent off on all our summer fabrics" you can be sure we re offering something worth taking advantage of.

Grimshaw, of Minneapolis, He had approved of the resolutions which it was proposed should be the party declaration i n Minnesota for the campaign of 1904. But it is probable that no one was more surprised than Senator Clapp when Laybourn read the plank declar ing for an eight-hour day. Obviously it -was not the province of Clapp to yield the chair —it is likely that in thut state convention there was no man who was willing to risk his political future by taking the chairmanship even for a minute —and attack the platform on the floor. The great ma jority of the delegates were just then immensely more interested in the re sult of the balloting that was. to fol low for a candidate for governor, ani so the plank went with the remainder of the platform. But Republicans have awakened, under the directing influence of The Globe, to the seriousness of the blun der committed in their name, and St. Paul business men—and Republicans— take the initiative in denouncing it in unmeasured terms. One prominent manufacturer says that he is forced to vote the Democratic state ticket for the first time in his life. Another says that the men who put the plank in the platform will reap an entirely different crop than that expected; another ex cuses them on the theory that "they know not what they do," and so down the line. Following are a few samples of opin ion gathered yesterday at random in the manufacturing and jobbing dis trict, and the list can be extended in definitely: R. A. Kirk Opposes Plank R. A. Kirk, Farwell, Ozmun, Kirk & Co., Wholesale Hardware —I am strong ly opposed to the so-called eight-hour labor plank in the Republican state platform. I work more than eight hours a day myself, and expect those who are associated with me in business to do likewise. Ido not recognize any valid reason for the employes on gov ernment contracts working a shorter time than other men engaged in simi lar work. The world has not reached a point at which eight hours' labor of the average man in ordinary labor will produce for him and his family the necessities of life, together with the added comforts which the average American citizen expects to enjoy. The result of an eight-hour law such as is proposed would be that gov ernment work, which is already based on a high scale of cost, would be con siderably increased, and the laborer in ordinary business, together with fhe farmer, who works much longer hours, and the business man, who also gives longer hours to his business, would be compelled to bear the additional bur den. This plank in the platform was un doubtedly put in for political effect, but the actual results will be very dis appointing to those who engineered it through. I do not know what position the Very large majority of Republican voters, who would be the losers if such a law were passed, will take at the polls. I am sure, however, that if a large part of them stand by the ticket they will do so under a hearty protest against such legislative folly. It will be a long day ahead when business men, farmers and the large body of employes, who are unfairly affected by such legisla tion, will consent to Its having a place on our statute books. Will Demoralize Business T. A. Schulze, Foot, Schulze & Co., Wholesale Boots and Shoes—Merchants and farmers both will not support a platform with any such plank in it.^ I believe that it was incorporated into the platform as a deliberate plan and that it means just what it says. Trans formed into law, the eight-hour plank in the Republican state platform would demoralize business, and increase the price of manufactured articles to the farmers. We are an agricultural state primarily, and the prosperity of this state in large measure depends on the prosperity and success of the farmers. There is no law or legislative enact ment which can arbitrarily decrease the farmers' working day or which can legislate an added value into his products. He will, of course, be the chief sufferer from such "legislation, but, on the other hand, It will be a hard blow to our export trade. We cannot compete in the markets of the world with a shorter work day and the present good prices paid American la bor. Speaking for myself, I can say that I am only one of a large number of St. Paul and Minneapolis jobbers and manufacturers who have no sym pathy with the peanut politics which placed that eight-hour plank in the Republican state platform, and it will cost its framers a good many votes. Plank Threatens Business Oliver Crosby, President American Hoist and Derrick Company—l do not apprehend that the Republican state convention knew just what it was doing when it passed the eight-hour plank in its platform last week. The mem bers of the convention had for two days been wrought up to a high pitch of excitement over the prospective nominee of the convention, and when the resolutions committee presented its report it was received without thought and without question. The delegates were willing to vote for anything, so long as they could reach the, to them, important matter of naming a candi date. But it is a serious thing to attempt to foist on the country a law which will force the employers of labor to give their employes an eight-hour day without any reference to the merits of the case. I think the bill now before' congress is as good as done for, but the Republicans of Minnesota have made a grievous blunder in incorporat ing such a plank in their platform. My position with respect to this proposed law is a matter of history, for last March I appeared before the commit tee of the United States senate at Washington and made an argument against the incorporation into law of the bill then pending in congress. I have long contended that a shorter working day is in progress of realiza tion. In New England the working day has been reduced from eleven and one-quarter hours per day in 1575-76 to fifty-eight hours per week nowa days, and I submit that if a shorter working day is coming naturally, is- it not good business policy and a safec plan to let it work itself out than to have the government force the manu facturers to let a portion of their fac tories work an eight-hour period in order to hasten tTie movement, provid ing penalties where the law is not en forced? It is one thing to do an act of your own accord, but quite another thing for the government to say that you must do it, and attach penalties for any breach of the law. We have for some years—since 1895, to be exact—been making cranes for the navy department at our works in St. Paul, and we have made a great many minor things for the fortifica tions. These contracts we have ob tained in the usual way; that Is, we have bid for them in the open market and the contracts have been given us on our merits. Naturally, we do not wish to be deprived of the opportunity of continuing this work. I should esti mate that in the last ten years. 10 per cent of our work has been government work. The hours for the major num ber of our men are ten hours for five days in the week ar.d six hou«i on Sat- THE ST. PAUL GLOBE. SUNDAY. JULY 10. 1904 urday, though in our foundry depart ment the men work nine hours d day. The passage of a law such as is rec ommended by the Republican state convention would compel us, if we are to continue in the work of government contracts, to work all men engaged on government work only eight hours a day. But it is obvious that we could not have two sets of men in the same shop, one working eight hours and the others employed for the full ten hours, such as our competitors are working under. I do not wish to convey the idea that I am opposed to a shorter work ing day. In fact, I am in favor of it. I believe it is coming, and I think it should come. I think there is plenty of good machinery to produce what we need in this world without having our men work from daylight to dark. All of the manufacturers in the Twin Cities are of the same opinion. As an evidence two years ago, without any demand from a labor union, they gen erally agreed that in iron-working es tablishments, both in foundry and ma chine shops, to reduce the day's work from a ten-hour day to ten hours five days in the week and five hours on Saturdays. No reduction of wages was made on account of this change in the working day, and the men were paid the same schedule per week for the shorter as they had been paid for the longer week. Naturally, I hate to be driven out of government work, and I don't believe that any great number of our 500 em ployes want to be obliged to give up that department of our work, the Re publican eight-hour plank to the con trary notwithstanding. Republicans Made Mistake J. W. Cooper, Griggs, Cooper & Co., Wholesale Grocers—l do not believe that legislation can possibly fix the hours of labor. The results will bear unequally upon those most concerned, and as a rule the business interests of the country are willing 1 to adopt an eight-hour day where it can consist ently be done. I am sorry to see any political party advocate a measure that will meet the decided opposition of so many interests, and I believe it was a political mistake for the Republican leaders to put such a plank into their platform, especially i n view of the fact that such determined opposition de veloped to it in the national congress, where all interests were patiently heard. Will Not Vote Republican Ticket Homer P. Clark, Treasurer West Publishing Company—While I believe that the adoption of the eight-hour plank in the Republican state plat form will not be countenanced by a majority of the members of the party In this state, the adoption of a plank favoring legislation so deleterious to the business interests of the country makes it impossible for me, for tht nrst time in my life, to vote the state Republican ticket. I hope that the Democratic party will keep clear of such a platform and not force me to vote the Prohibition ticket. Farmer to Be the Sufferer Frank A. Kelly, Foley Bros. & Kelly, Wholesale Grocers—While I am averse to taking any hand in politics and usually refuse to engage in a political discussion, I am free to say that I am wholly opposed to any such plank as the eight-hour plank In the Republican state platform.. I believe that it is the entering wedge for a universal eight hour law, and under present condi tions of business it would be simply out of the question for a St. PauJ wholesale house to handle its business in a shorter working day. I think that the adoption of such a law would ut terly demoralize present conditions while ultimately the farmer would be the sufferer. UNKNOWN MAN DROWNS IN FOREST LAKE Coroner Is Notified and Search Is Be ing Made for Body An unknown man, supposed to have pome from St. Paul, was drowned In Forest lake yesterday afternon at about 3 o clock by falling from a boat In which he had been fishing. The man, who is described as mid dle-aged and apparently a Scandina vian, left the dock in a hired boat yes terday morning at 11 o'clock with fish ing tackle. He was alone and it is thought that he came from St. Paul One report stated that he had been camping in the vicinity of the lake and another was to the effect that he ar rived on a train yesterday morning. The drowning occurred within quar ter of a mile from the shore. It is said that a man on the shore saw the man in the boat fall into the water but no effort was made to save the drowning man, and it was not until an hour later that a fisherman discovered the empty boat with a black fedora hat floating alongside drifting on the lake Coroner Freleigh, of Washington county, was notified and a search for the body is being made. The water is twenty feet deep where the man went down. Inquiry at Forest Lake failed to yield a clue as to the identity of the drown«d man. The hat picked up bore no marks and had no sign indicating where it had been purchased.

MAY MERGE SMALL RAILWAY SYSTEMS Eastern Capitalists Are Said to Contemplate Consolidation of Many Lines The purchase of the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton railroad by the syndicate of Eastern capitalists own ing the Pere Marquette is said to be but one of the first steps toward form ing a large and compact system from a number of small railroads which have been operated independently, with varying results financially. According to reports current yester day the following roads are to be em braced in the new system: Pere Mar quette, Cincinnati, Hamilton & Day ton, Cincinnati, Chicago & Louisville, Wisconsin Central. Minneapolis & St. Louis, lowa Central, Chicago, Peoria & St. Louis. The only official statement so far is that the Pere Marquette, Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton and the Cincinna ti, Chicago & Louisville roads are now controlled by one syndicate. The report that the "Wisconsin Cen tral is to be bought by the same inter ests may be due to the fact that the voting trust which controlled the Wis consin Central trust several years ter minated July 1,-making the sale of the road possible. The Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton road, by the acquirement of the In dianapouS, Decatur & Western., now Teaches Springfield, 111. The purchase of the Chicago, Peoria & St. Louis would extend the system to St. Louis and form a connection at Peoria with the lowa Central. That road and the Minneapolis & St. Louis have been controlled for several years by Edwin Hawley. CINCINNATI, Ohio, July 9.—A re funding mortgage was today filed In the county recorder's ofßce by the Cin cinnati, Hamilton & Dayton to secure the United States Mortgage and Trust company the payment of $25,000,000 of 4 per cent gold bonds due July, 1954. This Is in pursuance of the agreement whereby the new Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton system was formed. NORTH-WESTERN TO RUN FAST WESTERN TRAINS New Chicago-Denver Service Will Be Inaugurated Today CHICAGO, July 9.—A new train service which will become effective Sunday via the Chicago & North- Western and the Union Pacific rail roads between Chicago and Denver reduces materially the time schedules between Chicago, the Central states, the Atlantic seaboard and the Rocky mountain region. " The .new . regular daily trains are the fastest ever inau gurated between Denver and Chicago. Schedules are so arranged that from points in the Central states the trip to Denver requires only one night en route. Only two nights are necessary from the Eastern seaboard to the Rockies. The new service is over the double-track line of the Chicago & North-Western to Omaha, then via the Union Pacific. The change is ex pected to have much effect on the rap idly growing tourist movement. - ; 'iMrs. Winstow's Soothing i Syrop}'Q£? : Has boon usod for over FIFTY YEARS by MI Ut : LIONS of 5s MOTHERS B for | thalr-*• CHILDREN WHILE TEETHING, with PERFECT SUCCESS.

CHOPS UNINJURED BY PRECIPITATION Northwestern Vegetation Con tinues to Progress Favorably —Hay Cutting Begins Although there has been rain every day during the past week in the South ern part of Minnesota, crops in the northern and western sections of the state and in North Dakota have not suffered to any great extent from ex cessive moisture. The Northern Pacific's weekly crop report, issued yesterday, shows that vegetation throughout the Northwest has progressed favorably, although warmer weather would now be bene ficial. In general wheat is heading out and gives promise of a big yield. Bar ley is beginning to ripen, and oats and rye are looking well. Hay cutting has already been com menced and the crop is heavy. The rain in some sections interfered with the cutting of hay during the latter part of the week, but the loss will be small. Corn and potatoes are somewhat back ward. The Heport in Detail The Northern Pacific's, report in de tail is as follows: St. Paul & Duluth Division—Heavy rains have fallen during the week, re tarding the growth of corn and potatoes.

Little Falls & Dakota Branch—Splendid weather for all grain has prevailed since the last report. Wheat and oats average fifteen inches in height and -are heading out. Rye and barley look well and will be ready to cut in about ten days. Hay cutting will be general this week. Minnesota Division, Staples to Moor head—All reports are favorable and crops are making good progress. Wheat and oats are heading out in fine shape. Corn is a little backward and needs warm weather. Haying has commenced and will be a large crop. There is plenty of moisture in the ground. Fergus Falls & Black Hills Branch- Bright, warm weather during the week has greatly reduced the damage by the heavy rain the week previous. Wheat and oats average sixteen inches. Corn has improved with the warmer weather and Look Over the Globe's Want Columns Today And You'll Probably Find What You Want Look Them Over TODAY—EVERY DAY They're interesting Reading stands from six to eight inches high. Hay ing is well under way. Red River Branch—As far north as Crookston all crops are in "fine condition. North of Crookston the cool weather and heavy rams have retarded the growth. Pembina reports four and one-half inches of rain during the week. Haying has commenced and promises a heavy yield Warm, dry weather would be very bene ficial. Dakota Division. East of Valley City- Crops have improved materially since the last report, owing to the warmer weather Early sown wheat is about ready to head and late sown is making good progress. Flax and corn are rather backward Crops Look Good West of Valley City—All crops in good condition. Wheat stands sixteen inches nigh and is heading out. Oats and barley are also commencing to head.
