The bill also provides a pro hibition against any female under 18 h'ears of age from being employed or permitted to work before 7 o'clock in IUC WICIIIUIg Uf HIUT V UtlUCK. in tiiu afternoon. Another provision states that where h woman is employed in the same day or week by more than one employer, the total of time of employment must not exceed that allowed in a. single estab lishment. Employers are required to (make diligent inquiry as to the other empYyment of their female employes, and are presumed to have knowledge of other work in the absence of evidence ,to the contrary. This bill is a revision Sf the one which Senator LaFollette uosented to Congress a couple of years ago.

It was provided that the commission should be composed of nine persons to bo appointed by the president of the 1'nited States, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, not less than three of whom should be employers of labor, and not less than three of whom should be. representatives of organized labor.

London, Dee. 30. The abrupt adjourn ent of the peace conference in St. lines' palace here shortly after noon aturday when the representatives of .he Balkan powers departed in high dudgeon over what they consider the outrageous counter proposals which were submitted by the Ottoman delegates, a already outlined in me miii, lias given rise to grave doubts as to the ability of the contending parties to make any advance toward a settlement when the conference is resumed on Monday afternoon. By that time the Turkish representatives will have heard from Constantinople, but it is not believed that their instructions will authorize any Immediate cliange in me position they have taken. At best a holdup in the negoiations seems ineviatable while the European situation is becoming hour ly more dangerous, owing to Austria's impatience. The discussion of Macedonian reforms at this time proved particularly odious to the Greek representatives, and that delegation was the first to leave the picture gallery in St. James' palace, where the sessions are being held. Their leader. Premier Venir.elos, characterized the situation as most deplorable. "What is the use," he asked, "of our staying here?" an J in that query seemed to voice the doubt felt by most of his col leagues. Other comments heard after adjourn ment Indicated the extreme resentment which the Turkish plenipotentiaries have aroused by the bold terms of their pro posals. "l-or whom then have we fought?" demanded with excited ges tures Dr. S. Daneff, the Bulgarian dele gate. "What is the return from our victories?" was asked by another. And from Lazur Miyuskovitch, the Monte germ, came the threat: I am going to pack and return and resume my place at the tront! Mojan AovaKevitcn, whom the Servians call their Bismarck, remarked with bitterness: "The Turks have not yet learned that honesty is the best policy." Kechad tasha presided at Satur day's meeting, which opened at 11 o'clock, and threw the delegate in to immediate confusion when he began at once to read the counter proposals submitted by the Turks. Intense dis satisfaction was expressed by the repre sentatives of the allies by gestures and by exclamations in their several native tongues over the very first article ot the Turks' demands that the province of Adrianople was to remain under the W 1 l&mm i m in Wmm 1 ml 'mm j j Copyrlfbt IlMt Sctffhtr & Mart if . if ' a Good-Bye to 1912 , You've been a pretty good year when all has been summed In bidding good-bye to the old year, hadn't you better at the same time say good-bye to your old overcoat and start the new year with a new overcoat made for us by HART SCHAFFNER & MARX Snappy weather soon!

When the Dillingham immigration bill was passej in the Senate, it carried the literacy test and was then referred to the House. There was also before the Honse com mittee the Burnett immigration bill, which subsequently was lavorably re- forted out.

In the general discussion of the Otto man proposals which followed all the chief delegates of the allies spoke. They pointed out that the basis of the counter proposals were entirely different from that chosen by the allies in framing their peace terms. The basis of the Turkish proposals did not recognize, the facts of the sit uation, argued the delegates of the al lies. One of them, speaking to the Turkish members, said: "You must re member that the allied troops are still at the Tchataldja lines. Unless you are willing to negotiate on the basis of the dismemberment of European Tur key any discussion will be futile." The Turks did not take into consid eration, thev argued, the territorial claims of the allies. This was particu larly the ease in regard to Macedonia, where reforms seemed to be the ob ject in view of the Balkan war. The speakers in behalf of the Balkan confederation indicated that the pro posals were entirely unacceptable and could not form the basis of discussion. The Turkish delegation was asked to submit new counter proposals which would take into consideration the basis of the terms of the allies. Flames Destroy Machine Shop of Mead-Morrison Mfg. Co.

O'Day complains that he was greatly handicapped by the lack of a pitching staff. O'Day opines that he deserves credit for landing the Redland bunch in fourth place with only a group of second-rate twirlcrs. He says that Tinker will prosper if the grandstand fans of Porktown leave him alone, but if he doesn't get off with a sensational start as thev did last season, mercy will be a negligible quantity for Tinker. diaries Murphy, owner of the Cubs. when he scanned James Archer's letter, in which the (nib catcher demanded a salary of $10,000 for the season of 101,3 or quit the game, jocularly announces that he may sign Archer up lor flo.ooo, but not for a single season. Corroboration of the report that Fred Clarke will resume an active part in th National league next year has not been made by the Pirate manager at pres ent. There seems to be but little rea son that Clarke should not have some baseball left in him. Last season Clarke was doomed by critics before the sea- t son started, but his form indicated that he is yet to be considered amongst the topnotehers. ' Springfield, III., racing fiends are now struggling to bring one of the meets of the grand circuit to their town next year.

The Pirates were willing to pay Mor decai Brown the eamo salary as when he was with the Cubs, according to a recent announcement by Barney Drey fuss. The hitch between Tinker and Brown i said to be because the Beds manager is not offering enough salary. Joseph Martina, the new recruit re ceived by the Red Sox club from Beau mont of the Texas league, has signed for next season. This youngster is dif ference from other pitchers entering the big leagues. He is not busher who intimates that he will lead the league in pitching, but says that he -is going to be better than a finish-up pitcher. The malaria has left Hickory Jackson and the sensational young outfielder is hopeful of placing Boston well to the front with his ability. Jackson was not in d avmir lorm nart ot last season. owing to the attack of malaria. Johnny Evers, the new Cub manager, is scouting for a good left-handed pitch er. He has three recruits, who are port aiders, Pierce, Madden and Rummers, but he desires a seasoned southpaw to bol ster up his aggregation. Pierce was with the Giants last spring. He had great speed and curves, but his control is wretched, taking three catchers abreast to handle his delivery. YHans Wagner, the Pirate shortstop, is claimed to wallop the ball harder than any other man in the big leagues to-day, and time after time the question if such and such a player can hit the ball as hard as Wacner is expounded. The question is a difficult one to answer, but it is certain that his drives can be compared with those of no other man. Schwab Gives 200 Watches. South Bethlehem, Pa., Dee. 30. Charles M.
