THE MONETT WUEKLY TIMES. FRIDAY, AUGUST 29, 1S19. "
WILSON POSTPONES WAGE SETTLEMENT .President Asserts No Settlement is Possible Until Normal Economic Conditions Are Restored Through United States. Washington, Aug. 25. Postpone ment of the settlement of wage de mands until normal economic con ditions are restored was announced to day by President Wilson as the policy which the administration will pursue in dealing with such questions, par ticularly those affecting railroad workers. The president announced also that it was neither wise nor feasable at this time, when the most important ques tion before the country is a return to a normal price level to attempt to increase freight rates to provide funds for higher wages. "We ought to postpone questions of this sort until we have the opportunity for certain calculations as to the re lations between wages and the cost of living," the president declared in a statement to the public explaining his decision, as to wages. "It is the duty of every citizen to insist upon a truce in such contests until intelligent settlement can be made and made by peace and effective common counsel. I appeal to my fellow citizens of every employment to co-operate in insisting upon and maintaining such a truce." Mr. Wilson's statement was issued in connection with4 the decision of him self and Director General Hines on de mands by railroad shopmen for the 25 per cent advance in wages, but the general policy pronounced covers also the wage demands of other hundreds f thousands of railroad workers which are pending before the director general or about to be presented. It is to be expected that other unions trying to obtain more pay will be ask led, as the shopmen, to play their part with other citizens in reducing the cost .of living by foregoing a temporary advantage which would add to trans portation costs. Committee Told of Decision. The decision of the president and the director general was announced to a committee of 100, representing the shopmen. In reply to their demands for a 25 per cent increase, the shop men were asked to accept an adjust ment of their pay to the basis of ten "hours; W efghCTffturS' -work,-which, ithey contended' Ws given other em ployes and denied them when the Adamson law became effective. This means an advance' of the basic pay from 68 cents to 72 cents an houf, -whereas, an increase of 17 cents, to 5 cents an hour, was demanded. Acting President Jewell of the rail way "employes' department of the American Federation of Labor and his advisers said they would communicate the decision to the union locals for acceptance or rejection. A strike vote .completed yesterday, but not yet tabul ated, was on the question whether the men should quit work to enforce con sideration of thier demands by the railroad administration instead of by congressional commission as first sug gested. As this plan was abandoned the vote, whatever its result, is non effective and the shopmen now have an entirely new question before them. Mr. and Mi's. Earl Lauderdala spent Sunday at Roaring River.

Carens in his newspaper, The Osage Chief, at Fairfax, Okla. "If a man die shali he live again? This is the eternal question. I sat at the bedside the other night and kept lonely vigil as a weak little body racked with pain, battled against in surmountable odds. Not a second cf that long lonely night but was filled with agony for the sufferer; with grave forebodings for me. And, jutit as the moon had begun to silver the tops of the trees down on the river the little soul boat slipped its moor ings, and went sailing out across the bar. "It was as quiet and peaceful as though she had fallen asleep pillowed on my bosom. Rest, complete and perfect. Disease and suffering had done their worst, and that worst was to free her soul that it might fly bactc from whence it came, and to wring the hearts of all who had gathered beside the pitifully silent bedside. "In that hour, although my ei.r was not attuned to catch the rustling of the angels wings, the smile on the silent face proved to me they had come and I knew that there never had been, has not now, and never would be, but one answer to the eternal question. "Yes, a noble and good woman, whose 21 year of married life had been tempestuous and filled with sor row as well as joy, has closed her eyes upon the turmoils of life and fal len asleep forever. Sleep! that rest ful sleep, for which she longed but could not get in life. No more shall the stirring scenes of life awaken her, no more will Jhat humanely hu man heart throb in answer to ill" story of human sorrow; resting in that mysterious sleep which has closed the eyes of the just and unjust for aeons of mouldy centuries, that mysterious sleep from which none has ever awakened, and which will sooner or later come to one and all. Nor joy or sorrow will rouse her from that last repose nor awaken an answering pulse in her sleeping heart. "Sleep on, thou good and noble woman, sleep, , gently sleep that dreamless sleep which seals your eye lids and kisses the furrows from your brow; sleep for all eternity; resting in that sweet repose which brought the balm to the breaking heart of Christ the Savior, that sweet repose which fills the breathing of your own noble heart that heart whose every throb in life was" bediamoned with some kind deed done, whose every quivering pulse was one of joy for some friend's success, or one of ans wearing sorrow for a friend'sTravail and woe; Thou who amidst racking pains did sing the songs of zion and talked about a home in heaven, sleep on, while guardian angels sit beside your tomb and whisper of that morn the morn when all the myriad children of men shall gather in an eternity of space and joy and love on the mythical evergreen shore; sleep on through ages yet to come; sleep through the passing scenes of cen turies yet unconceivedj sleep, nor let the paeans of earthly victory and the wails of earthly woe mar nor break the calmness of thy last repose; sleep on, forever sleep, resting with that peaceful smile which succeeded the spasm pains of passing quickness to stilling death that smile which camo as angel voices whispered in thy dying ear, "Nearer My God to Thee, Nearer to Thee."
