Sadness in Business District
Over Passing of Mr.
HAD BEEN ILL ONLY WEEK
In Front Rank Among the Active
Men of His New Home
During his four years' residence in
their city. Bloomington people had
learned to appreciate the character
and worth of Mr. Kerns, whose death
was told of in last evening's Argus.
'Traversal sadness prevailed through
out the business district," says t;i
Bloomington Bulletin of last evening.
"wh n the news was made public thai
S. A. Kerns, of the firm of Cooper
& Kerns was no more. He passed to
the great beyond at 7:30 o'clock this
morning at his home, U)U Klder
"At the death-bed were his wife, her
mother, Mrs. Martin, one son George
and his attending nurse, Mrs. Trsher.
Ir. Leo Smith, whose wife l:s an own
cousin, remained with him during thr
entire night, but without avail.
"Last Friday Mr. Kerns was thought
to have typhoid malaria and was
forcoil to seek his bod. He had not
boon fooling well for some time, and
last weok was at the store and about
CliniiKF mh-k mll-nl.
"Tuesday morning he was improv
ing, really convalescent, and at 2
o'clock in the morning was peacefully
sleeping, lie suddenly roused from his
sloop and made an effort to turn on
his side. The effort pained him and
lie soon had a sensation as if some
vessel internally had given way. In
t use pain resulted.
"Dr. Smith did not deem that ty
phoid fever had progressed long
enough to cause ulceration of the stom
ach. From that hour until this morn
ing Mr. Kerns rapidly sank. Although
not in great pain during the last hours
there was a general depression, his
breathing became more labored and
his brtath grew shorter and shorter
until the finish.
"In September. 1 !. Simon A.
Kerns came to this city from Hock
Island to become a member of the
linn of Cooper & Kerns. He was a
shrewd, sagacious business man. and
took a front rank among nioomington
men. He was cheerful, accommodat
ing, and soon became well known.
Those who knew him. grew to love
liim. and no one was more highly re
spected than he.

"S. A. Kerns was born Jan. 25, 1S17.
in Columbia county. Ohio, on a farm
between Salem and New Lisbon. Ho
was a son of William and Buelah
Kerns, both deceased. One brother
Charles S.. of Moline. a real estate

ability won him rapid promotion and
when be resigned his position he was
"From Moline he went to Hock Isl
and where he took a position with the
Buford Flow company. This company
became insolvent after a number of
years. Mr. Kerns and wife went to
Ayr. Ontario, where hi started a plow
factory. He remained but one year
here, and returned to Hock Island
to aid in the organization of the Hook
Island Flow company. He became the
superintendent which position he held
until limn, when he resigned to come

SHOE MAKING INDUSTRY
IS SUFFERING HEAVILY
Year a Dull One With Work Irregular and Wages No
Greater to Help Keep Pace With Advancing Cost
of Living-Tariff On Raw Material at Fault.
Lynn. Mass.. Oct. 27. In canvassing
the great manufacturing establish
ments in and around this neighbor
hood, it is easy to find strong evidence
of the necessity now so pressing
throughout the Fnitcd States, for a re
adjustment of economic conditions.
Lynn is one of the greatest shoe manu
facturing towns in the world. Haver
hill probably turns out more low-priced
boots and shoes than any other city in
the United States. Peabody and Sa
lem are great leather centers. Law
rence is one of the chief woolen cities
in the world. In none of these places
is business flourishing as it ought to
do. In all of them workingmen com
plain of their low wages and the steadi
ly increasing cost of living.
In Lynn one finds unanimous argu
ment among leaders and observers in
the statement that the shoe business
of the whole United States is now
working at not more than two-thirds
of its normal capacity. Many of the
great establishments here, such as
those of Messrs. Welch & Landragan
and A. E. Little, typify the situation.
The great factory of Seymour & John
son, which is able normally to turn
out about It.ooo pairs of shoes a day,
has not been running at its capacity
since last June. Its present output is
not more than 1.500 pairs a day.
The XVurm f Labor Very I.eiv.
Ten years ago the laborers of Lynn
were among the best paid in the
United States. But there has been a
steady decline throughout that period.
Immediately after President McKin
ley's first election in 1S9. there was a
cut in the lasters wages. Since that
time the wages of nearly all employes
cf the shoe concerns here have been re
duced abount 10 per cent. One reason
for this is that the standard of the pro
duct turned out here has been steadily
improving. Formerly the Lynn shoe
was principally a very cheap article. It
would bring about a dollar a pair at
wholesale. At the present time the
average Lynn shoe brings about $1.50.
The workers have been forced to do
better work, but they are being paid
the same price per pair that they were
when shoes were selling at $1. The
consequence is that their individual)
output is much smaller, and as they
are paid by the piece, their wages arc
It is estimated that fully 40 new con
cerns have opened shoe factories in
Lynn within the past two years. Yet
this has had no effect whatever in
increasing wages. Nor has the laboring
population increased in size. This is
taken as ample proof of the s'a'einont
that all of the old factories have had
to reduce their output. The fact lhat
the cost of labor is so low her-;, and
that the manufacturers have so far
resisted all efforts to have it raised,
has made of it a very popular town
for new plants. But the working peo
ple have not reaped any advantage
Lciilher IluninrttN Slow.
Not only Is the shoe business at a !
low ebb. but the great leather con
cerns of the J. B. Ronton company and
Charles K. Harwood. of Peabody each
of whom employes several hundreds
working people, are also ;.;.ssiiit
through a very dull season. From the
first of June to the first of August, the
output of both of these establishments
was very largely reduced.
Republicans here are attempting to
palliate and remove the impression
left by this period of slack orders and
reduced employment by pointing to the
increases in accounts in the local sav
ings banks within the last few years.
They say that this means that the
condition of the working people is im
proving. In regard to this, it is inter
esting to learn from K. F. Robinson,
the head of the Boot and Shoe Work
ers' union in Lynn, of the existence
of what he called a typical case, which
"I saw a man just coming out of a
savings bank the other day." Mr. Rob
inson said to your correspondent, "and
he told me that had Ifiuo on deposit in
the bank. He told me a few moments
later that he had a $1. mortgage on
his house. He said that he would rath
er pay the heavy interest on his mort
gage and accept the small inter
est on his savings bank account
than to run the risk of being thrown
out of work and having his mortgage
foreclosed on him through the lack of
ready cash for living expenses. There
is many such a case right here in
"nnlitloan In Other Center.
But the state of affairs is even worse
in Haverhill. Salem and Peabody. Par
ticularly in Haverhill, one finds that
there is almost universal complaint
over the reduced earning power of the
laboring people. The tariff tax on
hides, which the manufacturers must
pay. the tribute which is levied on
behalf of the coal trust, and similar
exactions which are forced upon them
for materials and supplies, has reduced
their profit to a very low figure, and
the wages of the laboring people are
The labor leaders in Haverhill feel
that the condition of the working peo
ple there is probably worse than it is
anywhere else in the United States,
except possibly at Fall River. Fro:c
employers of the Chfck and Russ fac
tories come particularly distressful
stories of misfortune. I

rence. a few miles away, to find stiW
further evidences of the fact that the
industrial situation of Massachusetts
iS Tint OTllnvinfT a ruirlrwl nf A t.
prosperity." or one that would warrant
the country in "standing pat." For
example, the Pembleton company of
I-awrence shut down for two months
June 4 last, throwing many hundreds
out of employment.
Last March the Arlington mills,
which employ several thousand people,
made a horizontal cut in wages of from
5 to 10 per cent. It is true that repub
licans are claiming that the owners of
these mills gave a voluntary advance
of lo per cent in wages some months
prior to the reduction. But the mill
workers claim that after making the
advance, the management cut down
the working time, thus removing part
of the advance, and then wiped out
nearly all the remainder of it by speed
ing the machir.es.
Careful inquiry shows that the wool
combiners are now obliged to to do
double the amount of work that they
did in 1S01. and yet the mill owners
demand that it shall be done at the
same figure, about $7.50 per week. In
1X91 the wool combers turned out 11,
370 pounds of wool per man. In 1901
the product per man is 21.000 pounds.
There is a protective tariff of more
than 35 per cent on these goods, the
effect of which is to make- it impos
sible for English manufacturers to
compete with American, even if the
Englishmen could get their labor for
Turin on Wool Not n Knil Ilenetit.
It is thus to be observed that the
enormous tariff which is paid on wool
and woolens, and which has made it
possible for a large number of previ
ously cheap mills to bind themselves
into a woolen trust, does not produce
the permanent benefits which are
claimed for it. Woolen manufacturers
are already practically agreed that if
the tariff were taken off raw wool, the
manufacturer would be very much bet
ter off. The fact that there is a tariff
on raw wool today absolutely prohibits
the woolen manufacturers of Ameri
ca from selling their product outside
of the boundaries of the United States.
Their market is thus greatly curtailed,
and the effect has been most seriously
felt by all woolen mills for the past
In all of the cities where these sta
tionary or reduced wages are being
paid, and have been paid for many
years past, the cost of living has been
constantly increasing. Rents here in
Lynn are higher than they have ever
been before. Poorly paid as the aver
age workingman or woman is, it is
found to be almost impossible to keep
up with the steady advance in the
cost of the necessities of life.
E. F. Robinson, the labor leader to
whom a large number of the com
plaints of the people is made, stated to
your correspondent that he felt satis
fied that the cost of living here had
increased by fully 2t per cent during
the last three or four years. And the
feature of this situation, which is most
discouraging to those who must live in
it, is that the limit to the increasing
cost of living seems far from being
reached, while there are no indica
tions whatever of an appreciable in
crease in wages.

Man Must Exist on the Barest
RULING IN SCHAFFNER CASE
Former Commander of Naval Miiitia
$1,200 in Arrears to Fotcner
The Illinois supreme court late yes
terday afternoon filed 113 opinions
i.Mrin? date of Oct. 24. Left in tne
hands of the judges were only 15 old
cases yet "Imdecided.
At the present term a large nunmer
of new cases, many of them very ini-
no riant, were taken. In the i nanu-
ed down there was a large proportion
of personal injury suits ana pr -
cases of state wide importance.
Whnt fonntllnlex Alimony.
The court decided that a man under
decree of court to pay alimony to a
divorced wife must exist on me uaresu
necessities of life, if it becomes nec
essary, in order to make his full pay
mrnt tn her. This decision was in the
case of Lie. former commander of the
naval militia of Illinois, B. M. bnan
ner. of Chicago. His divorced wife,
Tennie. had him brought into court on
contempt proceedings because he had
failed to keep up his payments of $S0
per month and was behind ji.-wu.
Shaffner pleaded that he coma noi
pay the sum and made affidavits set
ting forth his poverty ana nis im-mvi
law practice. The lower court.- how
ever, sentenced him to jail. The ap
pellate court affirmed it and now the
supreme court says his answers and
statements of financial condition are
not clear and full. The court says:
"l!e who seeks to establish the fact
that his failure to pay as the result of
a lack of funds, must show with rea
sonable certainty the amount of money
he has received. He must then show
that that money has been disbursed in
paying obligations and expenses which,
under the law. he should pay before
he makes any payments under the de
cree of alimony." The court decides
that whatever he has left after meet
ing his barest living expenses must
be applied to the alimony.
When Kmploye Heeonien l.hiMr.
The court in reversing and remand
ing the judgment for $10,000 which
Charles La Ponte secured In Chicago
from the Gunning system for injuries
received while working for that com
pany, decides the point at which an
employe assumes risk and becomes re
sponsible for injuries received in work
ing in unsafe places. If he continues
to work in a place to which his mas
ter's attention has been called and
which the master has promised to re
pair, a period of time beyond that nec
essary for the making of the repairs
he then assumes all risk. La Ponte
called the master's attention to an un
safe place, which the court says could
have been repaired in three hours,
and which the master promised to re
pair. Yet he worked there for sev
eral days and finally was injured. The
risk and blame the court places on
La Ponte. and the effect of the decis
ion will be to make it extremely liffl
cult for him ever to obtain another
judgment in this case.
