The American Federation of Labor has declared in fa vor of the Democratic party and urges the election of trade union men to rep resent its cause in the state and na tional legislatures. In this week's isue of its weekly news letter the Federa tion prints in parallel columns the declarations of the republican party, the Democratic party, and the Progres sive party, so far as they refer to la bor legislation. The platform of the Socialist platform is not included. Candidates and parties," says the news letter, "are to be judged by their actions in preference to their declara tions. Of the Republican party, so long a it has had entire contrdl of the legis lation and the administration it was im possible to get from it any considera tion, much less action, on any funda mental questions affecting the rights, in terests of, and the justice due to the toilers of our country, as evidenced by the deaf ear turned toward the toilers by Congress when the bill of grievances and protest was presented to the presi dent of the United States, Mr. Roosevelt and the president pro. tern, of the Hen ate, Mr. Frye, and the speaker of the House of Representatives, Air. Oinnon. The official bulletin of the federation then points out that the failure of the Republican party to give relief was the cause for the ..American Federation of Labor campaigns of 1908 and 1010, re sulting, it is stated, in the election of fifteen trade union congressmen, and the defeat of a number of congressmen an tagonistic to labor. The bulletin points with pride to the achievements of the Congress just ad journed, so far as they affect labor, par ticularly the achievements of the Demo cratic House. One page is devoted to biographies of the trade union con resemen, including Representative Ber ger, the Socialist. The bulletin publishes a leUer from Chairman Henry of the House rules committee In which he promises that early in December of the next, session of this Congress, the Dillingham immi gration bill "will he brought by rule be fore the House of Representatives in order that it may be duly considered."

He Is Mentally and Physically Help less After a Long Spell of Ill ness. London, Kept. 14. Joseph Chamber lain, former colonial secretary, is said to be dying. Doctors say that he Is sinking fast and that the end may come any day. His mind, until recently alert, is failing him to the extent that he takes no interest in anything. His wife, who was Mary Endicott of Palem, Mass., is his only comfort. Mr. Chamberlain i said to be in such condi tion that he is mentally and physically helpless from the paralysis that for year has been creeping through hisys tem, and be is unable to leave his bed London, Sept. 14. The Unionist Morn ing Post heads it report of Winstoa Churchill's speech at Lickes, a suburb of Dundee: "Back to the Heptarchy," which may be taken as the keynote of the opposition criticism. In this speech Mr. Churchill outlined a federal system of home rule for the United Kingdom which would involve the creation of ten or twelve legislatures. He said the gov ernment intended Irish home rule aa the forerunner of a genuine system of self- government for all four countries. During the course of his speech Mr. Churchill ouMined a system of federa tion for Great Britain. There would be no difficulty, Mr. Churchill said, in applying the aelf-governmnnt system to Scotland and Wales as well aa Ireland, but in the case of England there would be a very real difficulty. England is so populous that an English Parliament, jwhatever it function and limitations might be, must necessarily be almost as powerful as an imperial Parliament and a quarrel between the English and Imperial Parliament might tear the state in half. Therefore in 1 order to establish a workable federal system in the country it would he necessary to di vide the country Into several self-governing area. (Mr, Churchill instanced Lanchashire, Yorkshire, the Midland countiea and greater .London as areas which, owing to the densitv of population and local conditions, could be regarded as destined for separate legislatures. Notwithstand ing all criticisms and objections, Mr, Churchill said he was not in the least disturbed ai the prospect of seeing ten a I.. . . Li.ii... i if.' i - or iwpivs st-pnmic ii'Kiiunuvp. miuips mil charging the functions entrusted to them bv the imperial Parliament and united under the crown. He argued from the examples of the I nited Statea, Germany, Canada and Australia to show the im mense sdvantage of such a system. Suffragettea did their best to break up the meeting. After manv persons had been ejected, Mr. Churchill said that the political status Of women would not be won "bv such uncivilised antic as have just been witnessed." FIFTH OF EXCAVATION ON CANAL DUE TO SLIDES Japanese Hero Follows Ancient Custom As a Tribute to the Departed Emperor. Tokio, Sept. 14. General Count Mare suke Nogi, supreme military councillor, and his wife, Countess Nogi, committed suicide last night in accordance with the ancient Japanese custom as a trib ute to the departed emperor Mutsuhito. The general cut his throat and the countess committed hari-karii Both attended the funeral at the pal ace, then returned and drank a farewell cup of sake from cups presented the general Dy aiutsunito. When . a single gun boomed on the palace grounds signifying that the em peror's body was starting for its last resting place the pair killed themselves. The tragedy created a profound sen sation. General Nogi was a national hero winning the battle of 203 Metre Hill in the Russo-Japanese war and eventually receiving the surrender of Lieut Gen eral Stoessel at Port Arthur. THE HIGH SCHOOL AND THE COMMUNITY BANKERS END ANNUAL MEET. Billy Murray, the Pirate smt, who was formerly at the head of the Phil adelphia Nationals, considers that Tris Speaker is a better all-round ball play er than Ty Cobb. It is expected that Harry David will be with Connie Mack next year in some capacity. Davis will probably quit the Cleveland club after the close of Its sea son and may act as scout for Mack. Maranville, the youthful shortstop the Boston National have been trying out lately, has come up to the expectations of the Beantown baseball lovers. He is small of stature, but has a great store of playing ability. Bedient, the Boston Red Rox pitcher, has been making a great record this year. Bedient is now one of the most dependable pitchers on the staff. The managements of both the Boston Red Sox and the New York Giants have received hundreds of requests from va rious people for reservations for the world series. The Cub are In the rut. Several weeks ago there was a possibility of the Chicago team leading the National league race. For about three weeka the club has been dropping game after game to weak teams and unless they brace the Tittsburg contingent will have nosed its way into second place. Outfielders Lee and Callahan of the Elmira club are soon to report to the Brooklyn club at once. Both of these fielders have been tempted with big league offers. In a review of the past season of the Twin State league the Bellows Kails Times has the following summary of its failure to produce n winning aggrega tion: "The first -lap of the season wss a bitter disappointment and this was due to the action of the directors in attempting to keep within the salary limit. Other teams viewed the salary 'imit as a dead letter and strengthened their teams by jumping to the limit. Then came the special mass meeting and from that time it was a different brand if ball civen at the park. The sclec-. tinn of the manager was not of the best. hi short. Manager Keadv was another? lisappointment." Wiltse and Meyers have the best bat ing average of any Hittery In the ma jor leagues.

Have Amounted to Total of 18,500,000 Cubic Yards Since the Work Began, Washington, Sept. 14. Earth slides n Culebra cut on the Panama canal have amounted to 16,500,000 cubyr yards since the excavation of the cut began. These elides represent not less than twenty per cent, of the total amount of earth and rocK mat o tar nas Deen removed rom the cut and would keep the excavating force at work at least half a year. The engineers have found no absolutely effective means to prevent the slides. A process ot terracing the banks has been found best. Excavating on the canal during August amounted to 2,443,353 cubic yards, or l0.O74 cubic yards less than excavated in July. There was one inch more of rainfall during August, which helped to cause the re duction. Concrete laying during Au gust amounted to 89,879 cubic yards, compared with 87,485 cubic yarda in July. How Can the Farmer Best Meet The Needs of the Latter. Colebrook, N. H.'s Experiment Discussed. How can the high school best meet the needs of the community! The people of Colebrook, New Hampshire, think they have solved the problem. Their experiment is interestingly described in a bulletin just issued for" free distribu tion by the United States bureau of education. Colebrook academy is located in a town of about 2,000 population in north ern New Hampshire. Starting in the nrst third of the century as a private school, it later became part of the pub lic system of education. Fpr years it has successfully done the work expect ed of a high school in the traditional branches of the New England school. Now it is trying to do something more. Without lowering its standards, with out ceasing to furnish the training neces sary for those going into the profes sions, it is endeavoring to provide an adequate education for the great mass of boys and girls who ought to remain and grow up with the country. It is seeking, in other words, to readjust it self to the need of the particular com munity in which it is. Just what this readjustment means may be seen from the following four significant additions to the school plant; the greenhouse, the dairy laboratory, the domestic art de partment, and the workshop, including a carpenter and blacksmith shop. Com plete courses are given in agriculture and domestic cir nee. Colebrook is the center of a rural district, and these are I the vital interests of a large part of the population. Colebrook academy does not propose to become a vocational school. It remains a general high school. The courses in agriculture and domestio science exist side by side with thorough courses in the traditional high school subjects, as well as the commercial branches. "Its purpose is not primarily to make goal farmers, or skilled mechanics, or pro fessional housekeepers," says Hon. H. C. Morrison, state superintendent of New Hampshire. The primary object is the education of the boy and girl to become a sincere and emcient and happy man and woman, capable of becoming an educated worker with material things, capable of getting life s happiness out of work rather than out of the leisure which comes after work, if indeed it comes at all. A further purpose is to educate the strongest youth toward the farm and the industries instead of toward the professions and business ex ly." In the work of the school it i repeatedly emphasized that the new courses are established in the belief that there ia just aa truly a cultural de velopment of the individual to be had from competent instruction in agricul ture or domestic science as from com petent instruction in Latin. The significance of the Colebrook movement lie in the fact that it demon-, strates the basis principle upon which the American high school must stWd or fall; that it shall be a direct source of it One Big Feature of advantage to you in buying these ready-made clothes, made by Hart Schaffner & Marx is that you see what you get; you see how it fits ; you kno vr how you look in it before you buy. That's one reason for buying ready-made c 1 oth es instead of made - to - measure clothes; the other reasons are all includ ed in the fact that such ready - mades as these are better clothes.

The feeling exists that secondary i rural schools have in many instances weakened the communities which sup- j ported them; that by the very efflcien-j cy ot tncir worK, tney nave tramen youn men and woman for other fields of usefulness and have thus frequently deprived the community of the services of its best citizens. It ia said that New Hampshire has been a notable sufferer from this process, ajid that readjustment is necessary if the process i to be checked and the upbuilding of the coun try districts is to bo on again. All over the country there is the same problem. It seems obvious that if the public high school is to justify itself it must con stantly put back into -the community the best of each generation as perma-, nent residents, Particularly important 5a the part to! be played by the reconstructed rural high school in the country life movement. The Colebrook academy dignifies the fundamental arts of agriculture and home-making. Given schools of this type, with a program of studies match ing the real interests of the community, any rural civilization may in truth be made as efficient and satisfying as other civilization.
