The first and only medal ever given by the United Stages government to any commun ity in the world has taken its' place among the cherished possessions of the city c'l Verdun. It was presented bunday by Ambassador Myron T. II wrick "in the name of the con gress and the people of the United States" to the municipality of Ver dun as a mark of America's appre ciat ion of the valor of its' defenders" "It is the whole of the United States which pays this honor", the ident, and with them our people. One feels in this tribute, representing the sent'ment of more than 100,000,000 human beings, something fundamen tal, massive. Their homage comes tue raciic coast ana mq iBier- ras, from the Appalachians and the eastern seaboard, from our northern border, from our Mex'can boundary, and from the plains .and valleys be- tween. sweeping, like a trial wave, l. t . . . across the ocean to Verdun". The fame of Verdun and the glory of its defenders dates fro'm Febru- ary 21, 1916, when the German high command besran its colossal mmen- se military and moral victory which, had ii teen successful, might have meant a different ending to the war. But the detenders proved to be in vincible. In tfhe autumn of 1918, more than two years' after the gigan tic struggle began, the gallant army of Verdun stacked its arms with the Knowledge tnat imperial oermany witnessed tne crusmng oi its sup- ci'iv nuti inw ijeniiaus, wun seven army j . 4. a l i it i i cuiiis tunceuudicu aiuuim uuh, i, &u nau rauroaus au men uisuusai ; and more than 3.000 p'eces of ar-i tillery of all calibres. The French, i i. . ... ... ... , witn a river in meir rear, naa one railroad, wh'ch was under enemy fire. By sacrificing men and mater ial on a lavish scale, the Germans counted upon rapidly overcoming all obstacles, smashing the defender's lesistiance under a deluge of 17-inch shells, and taking the city within a few days. The'r failure to foresee the tena cious French resistance was proved a year after the battle began, when it was learned that the Germans had employed 82 divisions in 11 months aga'nst the city, which s"tffll remain ed in the hands of its defenders. Be ginning in August, 1916. Germany in consequence of the French-Brit'sh offense in the Somme, gradually ab- anuuiltu me caiiilJiKii i aiuuuu 'ti- dun, in w1)ich' venture bd had sacri faced the p"ck of her troops. The city was finally and definitely cleared on both , banks of the Meuse in Novem ber,, 1918. "" Building hs speech upon this mag nificent defense, Ambassador Her rick said that "Verdun and Valor are forever one and insparable "Here blazed the spirit of France", he continued. "The valor wag the valor o'f France. General Petain had spoken for France, They shall not pass . "And so this "medal, which I give to this illustrious city, hallowed by sacrifices and courage of all France, is a tribute from the whole United States had seen tHiis1 same French sacrifice and courage devoted to a selfish, unworthv cause", he added, "ths1 tribute would not be offered to day. It was because the horrors of this' fighti and jrlory of this victory meant safety and liberty for France; it 's because France fought here, not as the aggressar, but as the cham pion of peace and righteousness fhat we of the United States feel, and take joy in expressing, our unstinted admiration". Yet, he sad, no one who had reaa Verdun's epic sfory could withhold a A mi ration fr.'r the tremendous pow- Vr of the German attack, and for the dogged pertinancity and courage of the German soldier. " Rutt no medal will ever be struck bv the United States m commeration of German valor at Veraun,, ne ae clared, "because of our deep and ab ;,iin fnnvietir.'n that the German val or and sacrifice were poisoned by the nu r pose to which they were de voted". pforrinr to the comradship m arms "sealed in the blood of our Krvpst. and best". Ambassador Her- rick said that it would no't evaporate in the heart of the first casual dis agreement. t .

Over the strong protest of the three labor represen tatives on the United States railroad labor board a new wage cut of seven cent an hour on railway shop ma- chanics and nine cents on freight car men, cutting 400,0OU shopmen ap proximately $60,000,000 a year; was ordered by the board today. The new wage reduction, " it was estimated, brought an added reduc tion of $59,669,347 annually to the railroads, following on the heels of a $50,000,0-00 cut on the wages of maintenance of way and shop labor ers last week. 1 The labor members pointedly stat ed that the majority decision was made "with no consideration of hu man needs, and charges that it "fails to carry cat the functions of the board to set and reasonable wage. The tendency o fthe decision is to vindicate the propaganda of the railroads and not the public testi mony of employes", they declared. Supervisory forces of the railroad shops were not decreased. After due consideration, the decision said, it was felt that the duties and respon sibilities of such forces warranted ; maintenance of present wages. Reductions' for the mechanics av eraged a little more than eight per cent, all mechanics, boiler makers, blacksmiths, sheet metal workers, electrical workers car men (except train car men,) holders and -cr're-j makers regular and helper appren- j tices receiving a cut of seven cents an hour. Freight car men, commonly known as "car knockers," the objects of heaviest assaults by the railroads, . . wevfi rut as hie-h as nine cents hour, - . -- . TAKE STRIKE VOTE Cincinnati, June 6.

H. Cof fey, president, W P Hill, secretary and treasurer, and F. H. Coffey, W. H. Hill, L. E. Rabb, T. H. Broyhill, Frank Hoffman and G. F. Harper as a board of directors, the Union Mir ror Company completed its organi zation at a meeting held here sever al days ago. This company has as its stockholders practically every case goods manufacturer in Caldwell, Ca tawba and Burke counties. This company expects to get to work on the erectio'n of a building within the next two weeks, accord ing to F. H. Coffey. A frame build ing about 60 by 150 feet will be erected on the property known as the old Wilson Lumber Company place. It is expected to have this building completed in from two to three months, and the work of mak ing mirrors will be started as soon as possible thereafter. Mr. Coffey says that they expect to turn out about a half million dol lars worth of mirrors a year, and this will be enough to supply the de mands of all the stockholders, and the surplus will be sold to non-stockholders. This extra plant for Lenoir will give employment to a good num ber of men. However, it is not known yet just what force of men will be necessary. All the men interested in this new plant are men of ability and it goes without saying that the plant will be a success from the begin ning. Mr. Hill is from Winston-Salem, and has been traveling this terri tory for a number of years selling mirrors. He is experienced in this line of business, and the directors feel very fortunate n secUirinfr him.

Mrs Lil lian Russell Moore, whose death was annouhced early today at her horn in this cty, had been suffering for several weeks following an accident received on board ship while return ing from Europe. It was believed, however, by her physicians last! Saturday that she had passed the crisis. Her death oc curred at 2:30 a. m, today.

WHEN GOVERNMENT RUNS THE SWITCH BOARD Public ownership of a utility causes some wry faces in England, when the British telephone system, run by the post office, is contemplat ed. It happened that England receiv ed in the same week the report of an official committee which had been seeking the reason why the British telephone systm is not a success and that reports of the telephone sys tem of the United States for the pre vious year. In the United States the twentiy six large associated private compan ies and the 9,000 and more indepen dent co'ncerns made a showing of ef ficiency that is unknown in England, where both the telephone and the telegraph are heavy charges upor the' public purse. "The telephone system in Ameri ca," one British comment runs, "Is as different from what we know here under the Same name as an ar ticle in general use is different from a rare and expensive luxury. In this country very few people not actual lv engaged in business use the tele phone at all.
