Tha Arms at March Si, "Ths Argaa heoeefarth win ba eoneaetaa la aa free aa aa ta stale Its honest eoarteaaos ta welfare.--- Street Railway Fareg. . People of Rock Island, Moline and East Moline are likely to have trouble resigning ' thimplve tn a. further Increase in street rail- - way fares. .They have paid one advance with- in the year and had supposed the matter was settled. To have the subject again brought up now Is trying to the patience, especially since there is no better assurance than there was before that this will be the end of the agita ' tion. The fact that the TrI-City Railway com pany this time proposes to make It either 8 or 9 tents some way encourages the suspicion that what It really wants is 10 cents and it - "won't be happy" till it gets that figure. When fares were made 7 cents a good many people who had been in the habit of riding be " ' gan walking. This number will increase in di rect ratio to the increase in fares. To a cer aih extent fare increases defeat their purpose, as many a traction company has discovered in . the last year or two. Double fares to meet doubled expenses works out all right In theory, but not in practice. The thing that nettles patrons on this side of the river is the fact thaj the lines here are really doing fairly well. The company's loss "Is incurred on the Davenport side, where the yity has demanded extensions that do not pay. atock Island, Moline and East Moline are asked S" to make up the deficit and if the Illinois pub lic utilities so wills they will have to do it er walk. And that isn't all. After the increase is giveil for 'the Illinois lines of the company there is no assurance that one will be allowed on, the other side of the river. In the previous instance patrons on this side paid their 7 cents for several weeks, before the advance went into effect in Iowa. If any Davenport lines are not paying it would seem to be up to Davenport patrons to make up the deficit or relieve the company of the obligation of operating them. Certainly if a fare increase is absolutely necessary those who are getting service at less than cost should be the first to meet it 1 27 et dt CxVaU Uood and workaft ad eacrtSoM eaaabt expected to be vary lenient wit people who held back and deliberately made' their andertaklng all the harder, repudiating their oath of loyalty to do ao. The Mew York assembly has taken the neural, the haman view. Yet. on the other hand, this is a govern ment of the people, whose right to express themselves upon public questions is inviolate. Supporters of the five ousted members ot the legislature say that they are opposed to force and wish to bring about the adoption of the principles for which they stand In the manner provided for in the constitution. If they can master a majority their right to run the gov ernment cannot be questioned. But how are they to get a majority if they are denied rep resentation? V', These people must be credited with sin cerity of purpose. Most of them think their System is better than that under which we live and that they , are working for the ultimate Interests of everybody. They will now feel that they are being persecuted and they may be expected to go about seeking their ends with - even greater real and less scruples. Denying them representation really strength ens their hand.

' Rock Island and the quad-cities are glad to welcome Secretary Baker on his mission to Rock Island arsenal. This is the third visit of a secretary of war, but it is the first time that official business has been the sole purpose. Ex-President Taft was here on the eve of his nomination and Mr. Baker com bined politics with business on his previous call. - The fact that the secretary of war has come direct from Washington to inspect the arsenal shows the importance that the institu tion has attained in the eyes of the war de partment The quad-cities will join in the hope that such changes as are contemplated and which may grow out of Mr. Baker's visit will not tend to impair the position of the arsenal as the leading manufacturing plant maintained for military purposes. ttaria An Iadependtat Analysis ef tailexCnr- Srzui Avenia as neuecwaj u aw lie Press of the Ceaatry J by iWILUAM BRADY no. mf.T lmJf- rart Hra larm Case of the New York ; : . Assemblymen. Technically the New York assembly is right , in unseating the five members accused of dis- layalty.? v Actually at this distance it looks as if a serious mistake, has been made. . It is exceedingly hard to do Justice in such a case. That the accused men were fully committed to the principles of the Socialist party and that the party was hostile to the war effort of this government has been shown to the satisfaction of everybody. Loyal citi- A BASIS FOR INDUSTRIAL PEACE. President Wilson's first effort for harmony between capital and labor broke up In a row, the representatives of employers and employes being unable to agree, and the representatives of the "public" being in the minority. The second conference,' composed solely of the "public," has just formulated ita program for the prevention of industrial disturbance. ,r The Youngstown 1 Vindicator (Dem.) calls the report a "masterly study of industrial con ditions in the United States," and the Bir mingham News (Dem.) believes it "deserves the most careful consideration by Americans of all industrial and political complexions." A feature that makes it especially appealing is that, while it does not require "compulsory arbitration." it does require "compulsory pub licity." As the Portland Oregonia (Ind. Rep.) says:- "The only element of compulsion about it is the nrovision for a board of inquiry and for a report to the public when an adjustment t conference disagrees or when a aispute is noi referred to it Public opinion is then to render the final verdict The public has a right to dominate, for it ultimately pays the loss by strikes." ' j "Publicity, of course, is the last thing some men want," comments the Sioux City Tribune (Ind.) and therefore the proposal "will be fought by some labor leaders and by . some employers," while the Norfolk Virginia-Pilot (Ind. Dem.) adds that "public opinion is a power before which industrial forces must bow; those who have justice on their side have nothing to fear from its judgment.' "But justice and practicability do not al ways go hand in hand," interposes the Pitts burgh Sun (Dem.), and the New York Evening Post (Ind.) also remarks that "if industry wants peace, the way of peace has been pointed out If it wants war, no set of machinery will prevent war." "It does not bring the millen nium," observes the Toledo News-Bee (Ind.) "and it will not solve the problems of indus trial unrest but the plan of industrial adjust ment which it proposes' is infinitely better than no plan at all." "Unrest today," says the report itself, "is characterized more than ever before by pur poses and desires that go beyond the mere de mand for higher wages and shorter hours," and while these aspirations are "psychological and intangible" they are "not for that reason any less significant" The report declares that workers desire "to exert a larger and more organic influence upon the processes of indus trial life," and it accordingly makes provision for a share in the management through shop councils. Commenting on this, the New York World (Dem.) says: "For the first time in this nation a confer ence representing the widest public endeavor finds with impressive unanimiity in favor of employes as managers, in part, of the indus tries in which they work. This cannot but stimulate interest; it might aid efficiency; it should allay unrest." The Pittsburgh Dispatch (Ind.) says on the same point: "The old personal contact between the employer- and employe is vanishing and in its place the conference proposes employes' rep resentation which should , begin within the plant itself, and supply mutual understanding and cooperation in the joint management of their common interests . . . The suggestion, it will be admitted, will be criticised by em ployers who still adhere to the theory that labor is a commodity, but this view is disap pearing." Samuel Gompers, also, opposes this ar rangement, seeing in it a blow at the influence of the existing labor organizations, and point ing out that industry should "be viewed in a national light and the workers united into organizations covering whole industries." Otherwise, he points out "shop may be played against shop." The Snrinefield ReDublinan It is kind of Governor Lynn J.

Mrs. Crawford nicked uo her sew ing and threw it down again in dis gust Her wrath was not unjusti fied. She surveyed her surround ings with profound indignation. The furniture seemed a kind of symbol of the dreary monotony of life. It expressed so elearly the re lentless decay of youth and hope. The rocker in which she sat, with all the defects of antiquity save its charm, was a summary ot her mar ried life. It had been intended tor mere temporary use; it had been their pleasant conviction that in a year or two they would replace it with something better something that one could live with always. But Alfred's affluence had proved always just over the ridge of at tainment She then went over again the bills in her desk. Once a month for 20 years she had struggled over these bills, buoyed np with a placid faith that "next month" there would be something left over. But that next month never came.

It was not his fault that lack of initiative was part of his disposi tion, that the rut in which he la bored at the store was the fruit of his quiet sobriety. Nevertheless, she could not quell an unruly sense of resentment If only Alfred would be different oc casionally, v. She shook her head helplessly. There was no use. The glowing fabric of hope had faded, as doubt less it must for everyone. . , Her mind flashed back over the years to the perfumed summer eve nings when she waited at the gate in the twilight eagerly awaiting Al fred in his neat dark suit and prodigiously high collar, swinging his stick smartly. It was unusual ly dark when he arrived with no regrets for that They had not been married then, of course. She thought of her wedding. She had made her bridal gown herself. Their honeymoon had been spent at a little summer resort only a few miles from her' home by trolley. She smiled to think of those few days and how quickly they had slip ped away. Reluctantly, her thoughts came back to the bleak present Alfred would be coming in presently. Then he would say: "Hello, dear." make some formal inquiry as to her oc cupation during the day and some times about the. children. After supper he would submerge himself in the rocker and go to sleep. Some. times ne would kiss, her or permit himself to be kissed. Thus the days had ended for more years than she could remember. Just at thfk, stage ot thinking she heard voices on the porch outside herself, was there with her young man. Her eye clouded wistfully. Evelyn was adorable and so young! A tear rolled aaltilr down har cheek as she glimpsed the box of candy in her daughters band. Onceilt" upon a time Alfred had brought sweets to her, too not so lone aeo. But now it became extravagant, not to say foolish. It was not practical, he had explained, when she craved for sweets. But. then. . he never did understand. More than once she had struggled to make Alfred comprehend whv she craved a caress.' Always she had exasperated him, brought him as near wrath as it was-possible to bring him. He had said in so many words quite bluntly that such blandishments were for young sters still idealizing life and love. Why could she not take something for granted?, . That was the trouble Alfred took everything for "granted." Life had become a habit, his life the most commonplace factor in it It Drought a lump in her throat Then Alfred suddenly underwent a kind of deification in her mind. For all his weakness he was far above any outer man sne Knew. Hearing him coming un the front steps, she went to greet him with a strange new feeling of gladness. She fancied that he seemed a trifle nervous, that he was holding back something from her. "Supper is ready," she said, for want of something else to say. "Let the children eat if he re plied briefly, "we are going out to night" "OutT she repeated, amazed. "Yep," he smiled mysteriously. "Hurry np, dear; get dressed,' She turned and faced him. "Alfred Crawford! Whatever are you np to?" she demanded. He looked comically sheepish and aid: - "Why er I thought we'd have a little dinner in town and then go to the theatre. Remember how we used to go, dear?" t, "Ot course I remember l? she cried. .

Meave. the diminutive of Meadhbh, became popular in Ire land and, in honor of its first pos sessor, was bestowed on the queen jber. of the fairies. Irish settlers brought her fame to England, where she was made immortal by Shakespeare and Ben Jonson. "Queen Mab" is still a character of great beauty and adorns the fairy tales of Britain. Mabel means "beloved," a signifl cance probably given by the Irish who are naively fond of fairy stories. In France she is called Mabelle. The name is too Keltic to appeal to the Latin countries, so she has no equivalents in Spain and Italy.

The welcoming shouts of ha' slaves and the baying of his dogs at Mt Vernon, no doubt, were more pleasing to Washington, on his re tirement from the presidency, than any public applause. For the sec ond time he had come home with an empty wallet from an 8-year ab sence in the service of his country, when he died Washington was worth $530,000, above the value ot Mt Vernon and apart from Mrs Washington's estate. But he was always land poor. When called to the presidency he was behind in his taxes; even with his doctor's bill, and had to borrow the money to pay his way to the inauguration. As president his steward and 14 servants at the capitol cost him $600 dollars a month for their food and wages, and he gave away more money than his latter-day succes sors. Besides providing that his usual charities at Mt Vernon should be continued, liberal char ities in the presidency were a se rious drain on bis official pay. Without a child of his own, Washington always had a large family to support He adopted or brought up nine children belong ing to his and Mrs. Washington's relatives and 41 relatives received bequests at his death.
