Old
Rumor of Resignation Revived at
Marine Co. .Meeting.
London,' Dec. 21. A rumor gained
currency after a meeting of the Inter
national Mercantile Marine company
hero yesterday that J. Bruco Ismay, one
of the ex-oflicio directors, had resigned
from Iiis position as president. It was
said that Harold Sanderson, also a di
rector, had stepped into his place.-
Mr. Ismny would make neither affir

Jewelry, Watches, Clocks
If it is Jewelry, Watches, Clocks or Silverware you are
thinking of giving, it will pay you to see me before buying.
To induce you to trade early, as I have no clerk to help
wait upon the late buyers, I have several dozen Ladies' Hand
some Brooches, one of -which I shall give to each customer
making a cash purchase of three dollars or over. This offer
is good only as long as the present stock lasts, or until Jan. 1.
I have added a very nice lot of new goods in all the lines
that I carry, for the Christmas trade.
Small expenses and no wages for help enable me to make
very attractive prices. Come in and let me prove it.
AIKEN
313 North Main Street! Successor to Lang Jewelry & Optical Co.
London. Dec. 21. Much hard language
was indulged in and venomous feeling
aroused in the House of Commons yes
terdav afternoon over the retirement
of Vice-Admiral Sir Francis C. Bndgo
man-Bridireman from the position of
first sea lord of the British admiralty.
Admiral Lord Charles Beresford, who
s a member or tne Mouse, ana Winston
Spencer Churchill, first lord of the ad
miralty, reviled eaen otner to tne ut
most limit allowed in the British Par
liament.
"Backstair methods," "bribes and
1 threats,' ' "gross insinuations" and
"skulking" wero some of the phrases cx
changed,
Briefly, Lord Charles Beresford
charged Mr. Churchill with pursuing
policy of bribes and threats. If, he
said, the sea lords disagree with Mr.
Churchill's autocratic assumption of the
executive as well as the administrative
authority, they were dismissed in inso
lent letters.
The reply given by Winston Church
ill was crip and stinging.
- Lord Charles Beresford, he said, had
made a number of insinuations of a
very gross character. He continued:
"He has skulked In the background,
waiting for an opportunity to make
charges Unsupported by facts. He has
levelled scurrilous attacks of espionage,
favoritism, blackmail and inefficiency
ngainst me, but I have never taken him
too seriously.
"He does not mean to be as offen
sive as he really is. I am sorry he
was not made admiral of the fleet, as
I know how sore he was about it, but
since I have been at the admiralty I
have discovered that it would be very
difficult to get a board of naval men to
approve such an appointment.

And Sides of Neck. Suffered Pain
and Loss of Sleep, Started with
Pimples. Face Disfigured. Cuti
cura Soap and Ointment Cured.
418 East 73d St., Now York, N. Y.
"Cutlcura Boap and Ointment cured me of
blackheads and bolls from which I suffered
pain and lot of sloop for
nor than a year. The
trouble first started with
pimples which I thought
would go away, but later
I bad my face and the side
of my neck full of black
beads and bolls which dis
figured my face. I was
ashamed to go out of the
house. I tried everything recommended,
but without doing me any good until I
started to use Cutloura Boap and Ointment.
They relieved tne of the pain and gar me
a peaceful night. After using Cutlcura Boap
and Ointment for two weeks I was cured.'!

months his faoa was completely cured."

truth,
Here, in this, the richest land in all
the world, humanity is decaying in a
social abyss; here wealth accumulates
while men decay. Almost daily can we
see in the press where vast fortunes are
being squandered by the idle rich, while
those who do the world's work are con
demned to a life of misery, poverty and
despair. Our press is a chronicle of
crime, a standing . indictment against
capitalist society.
Men, as a rule, are born to crime.
Their environments foster the evil traits
that reduce men to dishonesty. Riches
have the same evil influence upon men
that poverty breeds; the only difference
is that they wor kin different direc
tions. Harry Thaw was a victim to his
environments. So is the man who robs
and murders in order to get the stuff
that rules the world. Honest toil does
not receive its proper reward and that
is why men resort to dishonest methods,
And there are employers who would like
to reward honest toil far better than
they do, but the keenness of business
rivalry, the competition that is sup
posed to be the life of trade, will not
permit it. It is no wonder that men will
resort to crime when they are kept on
the ragged edge of, life and read the
following:
"Miss Mary Astor Paul, daughter of
James a. i'aul, jr., or the JJrexel firm
made her debut recently at a ball that
for grandeur, cost and novelty eclipsed
the famous ball of four seasons, with
which Mr. Paul introduced his oldpr
daughter. The flowers alone cost $33,000
for the occasion. The feature was
new rose, a cross between the American
Peauty and the Sofrano, that took nine
years to develop, displayed here for the
nrst tune,
"At 11 o'clock, 500 lartre, brilliant but

"The destruction of the vessel cannot
be a matter of indifference to any pas
senger. There can be no wreck for one
that is not a wreck for all."
The truck drivers of Montpelier have
affiliated with the Vermont state branch
of the American Federation of Labor.
There is an appeal being made to
Christmas shoppers that should not be.
made in vain to trade unionists, and
that Is to do their buying early, in order
that men and women clerks may not be
forced to work unreasonably long hours.
The positions held by these workers aie
trying, even under favorable conditions,
as they have to satisfy the wants, real
and fancied, of hundreds of purchasers
each day, and to add to their burden
by the needless imposition of waiting
until the last minute to make your
purchase is unfair and unjust so shop
eariy,
Wo note with interest that even the
non-nuion manufacturers are finally
waking up to the facts that they cannot
successfully compete with the output of
prisons, for at the recent convention of
the National Association of Garment
Manufacturers in Milwaukee, a augges
tion was made that a committee be
appointed to select a label to indicate
that produits are made by free labor.
If the non-union manufacturer, with the
power that he has to enforce any kind
of working conditions upon his employes,
who enjoy "ir .ustrial freedom con
tract" cannot compete with the prison
contractor, wnat chance has an employ
er who pay, living wages and whose em
ployes work but eight hours a day, to
meet this unfair and unhealthy compe
tition 7 lie lias a chance, to be sure.
if the worker insist upon having the
union label attached to every article he
purchases, but otherwise he and his em
ployer are at the mercy of the non
union manufacturer, as well as the pris
on contractor, so get busy and k
boosting for union-labled goods.
