Published Every Thursday Kntered at secoii-l-cljm mattnr N. si. un THK CIMAK Standing Henry Clay once said, "we must either all stand to gether or hang together;" and undoubtedly he meant to say; the American people, and especially the laboring cfaai must stand together in a body of unison if it wants its pri vileges, freedom and due compensation for its laborthe only working capital it possesses. Our forefathers won because they were right. President Lincoln lead the forc es in the Civil war against the slave holders because he was right. And centering down to present day times and topics; the strikers in the coal districts of Colorado and other states, the 10,000 employees of the Westinghouse Klectrical Works and the 70.000 railway engineers threat ening to strike, are waging a finance, because in their estimation they are right, abso lutely and unreservedly so. The laboring class standing together as it does by means r.f strong organizations it employs the muscles and part of the brains to turn out the products from the mill, mine and factory. The capi talist assumes the same heir because of his investment and possible and very often instant loss. These are the two powerful pirates that have it to do with the industrial welfare of the country this moment. Congressional investigations have been going but were not successful. The substance of the situation then is that, the whole thing is an absurd mockery. Congress, high fi nance and the labor organizations have failed to restore satisfactory conditions for all concerned. It then lies with the president to cope with the situation and devise ways and means whereby the conditions will be improved and forever after avoid strikes and unsatisfactory labor strug gles. Organizations and high finance have a right to stand together, but their standing together should not be devoid of the respect for humanity such as the constitution of the U. S. provides for thotfe who are governed by the stars and stripes. Unless these labor uprisings cease,, the government must assume the dictatorship and lend an eye and ear in the shape of stringent legislation and the enforcement thereof to the industrial conditions, with the point in view of equality to all and special privilege to none. Split the Always when a citv raises the cry, "Eliminate the middleman," the argument is that this "parasite" is mak ing the consumer pay too much for foodstuffs, that so many dollars a year can be saved to each person or familv when the man between is squeezed out. Always the farmer is sympathetically mentioned as the fellow who comes out the little end of the horn; but never do you find a sugges tion that he share in the benefits of direct dealing. Recently the Municipal Markets Commission of Chi cago reported that the city was paying $51,393,304 a year too much for its food, because of the waste between pro ducer and consumer. The commission estimates that the total food bill is $321,109,146, of which the producer re ceives only $170,240,317 just a bit more than half, mark you and the railroads $22,480,570. The wholesaler and jobber get $32,120,815; the retailer takes $96,362,444 as his share. The investigators say the middlemen's profits can be cut to $12,848,326 and the retailers' to $64,241,629 by the establishment of a "comprehensive system of whole sale terminal markets under the control of the city, design ed to render efficient and satisfactory service to the con suming public. This partial elimination of the middleman, we are told would effect a per capita saving of $21.47 a year, or a sav ing ot 98.76 for the average family. Pity the poor consumer! Kliminrte the pernicious middleman! Yes, but pity the poor producer too! linear ly a hundred dollars a family can be saved by this kind of direct dealing, let it lie split fifty-fifty. The producer needs to get more for his goods just as much a the con sumer needs to save more on his food bills. It's no easier to make ends meettm the farm than it is in town. Coun try Gentleman.

The skeleton of a nyamy at least two hundred thousand years old, Just unearthed near Los Anecies Is ex pected to send long-established theo ries of anthropological science crash ing tnto the ash heap with other ex ploded beliefs, and probably prove that the Garden of Eden was in Lower Cali fornia. Scientists who have examined the find of Frank 8. DaaaetL head of the California museum's research de partment at Exposition park in Los Angeles, see In the bones a cold fnrt that shatters the heretofore generally accepted "uncontrovertible" dogmas ot scientists who have tinkered with the earth's crust In an attempt to solve the riddle of the universe. Professor Daggett has been direct ing a force of workmen In the La Brea asphalt beds In their labor of digging for extinct animal specimens. The dwarfs skeleton, which Is only three feet two Inches long, was discovered In an admirable state of perfection within one hundred yards of the fash ionable W'llshire boulevard. That a race existed of which mod ern man knows nothing and which roamed the American continents ages before the earliest date assigned to the most ancient remains dug up by scientists, Is the belief of Professor Daggett and his associates after a close study or the pygmy bones and a comparison of them wlth'other famous collections. "I am confident," said Professor Dag gett, "that long before man appeared in the countries of the old world a diminutive race thronged tho section now occupied by Los Angeles and its environs. There, I believe, was the home of the human race, the Garden of Eden, I might say. "The moment we uncovered the skeleton I was beside myseir with joy, because in those bones' 1 saw proof of ray theory that the American conti nent was peopled prior to the time of Adam and the creation. as referred to In the Bible. The bones will also shatter the theory that the first people to Inhabit this continent came from Asia." Professor Daggett is jealously guard ing his remarkable find, believing him self a steward acting In the Interests of the whole world of science, so Im portant does he, regard his discovery.

NO fr Furniture and Supplies Manuscript Covers Legal Forms L FORCES OF U. S. IN Better Trained and Equipped Than Ever Before. BUT STILL FAR FROM PERFECT In Case of War With Mexico It Will Require Some "Brushing Up" te Fit State Troops to Take Field With Regulars. By EDWARD B. CLARK. Washington. When the cloud came Into the sky suggestive of war wiUi Mexico, the first thought of the mili tary authorities coucernrd itself naturally with the preparedness of the regular army. The second thought was directed to the preparedness of the National Guard, but In a way the second thought wus graver thi.n the Hist, for in a war which assumes great proportions volunteer organizations must make up the major pari of the armies in the field. The National Guard forces of the states of the Union are better trained better organized and better equipped today than they ever were before, but they are still far from a state of per feet readiness for war. Prom the day of the birth of the first rumor of prob On the Parade Ground, able trouble with Mexico, the Ameri can volunteer t been mailt festina: Itself.

Gen. Al er. and a il for con f on the erv y In the vision of military affairs has striven to bring the regulars and the National Guard closer together In spirit and in efficiency of service. Of course, It Is recognized that It Is Impossible to turn a civilian Into a regular over night, and that it is also Impossible to do It In years under the conditions of training which naturally must attend the regime of the guard. The guards men drill only once a week. They go Into ejimp only once a year, and at the best they can get but the first lea sons of the regular service life. As It Is. however, by means of the help which the federal government has giv en and through the Increased Interest among the guardsmen, the state sol diers are today fitter probably than ever before to enter active service. In round numbers, there are 120,000 Nations! Guardsmen In the United States. 9.O110 officers and 111.000 en listed men. On the wall of the main office of the division of military affairs Washington la a huge map of the rtiite,! states. This map is "carded." sate by state, each card showing the strength of each arm of the service In ever' state ef the Union. Elsewhere In the office are the reports which show efficiency. Regular army officers pass Judgment upon the military stand ing, all things considered, of the differ ent organizations of the guard. Kv erything pertaining to the efficiency of the state troops Is known to the war department authorities In Wash ington, and It is on the basis 01 'uls knowledge unquestionably that first selection for service will be made. The regular army and the National Guard together are divided Into 16 military divisions. The regulars form the first four divisions and the guards men tbe other 12 divisions. In a sense, so far as the National Guard Is concerned, this division formation Is tentative. If the guardsmen are sent to the front unquestionably they will go In divisions, but the advance cre ation of these divisions has been diffi cult, owing to the limited control of the federal government in the prem ises, the varying conditions obtaining In the different states, "the fact that in the general case several states com pose a single divisional district," and the fact, as the current report of the chief of the military division says, that no regular army officers have been available for working on the problem. The division formation, how ever, unquestionably will be the forma tion of the National Guard for tactical purposes In case they are ordered into the Held. As has been said, the regular army forns the first four divisions. Tbe Fifth division, geographically speak ing, Includes the New England stateB. The other divisions In order and the states whose troops will go to form their units are: Sixth, New York; Seventh, Pennsylvania; Eighth, Vir ginia. West Virginia. Maryland, Dela ware. New Jersey; Ninth, Florida, North Carolina. South Carolina; Tenth, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennes see. Kentucky; Eleventh, Michigan and Ohio; Twelfth. Indiana and Illinois; Thirteenth. North lakota. South Da kota, Mlnnesdta, Iowa and Wisconsin; Fourteenth. Kansas, Colorado, Wyo nilng and Nebraska; Fifteenth, Louisi ana, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma. New Mexico and Arizona: Sixteenth. Utah. Nevada. California, Oregon, Washing ton. Idaho and Montana. Under a law recently passed by con gress and approved by the president, it will be easier to take the National Guardsmen of the different states Into volunteer service than ever before. If three fourths of the members of a state regiment express their willing ness to enlist the organization at once can be sworn Into tbe volunteer serv Ice. and the deficiency of enlisted mon. If any. can be made up by volunteers from outside of the organization. It will be seen from the table given of the twelve militia divisions that the brigades and regiments forming one division will be drawn from neighbor ing states, thul In a great measure keeping up not only the traditions of state pride, but of that pride which In a good seuse can be called sectional. This sort of feeling is recognized as 1., per, and as a stimulant to ilgh endeavor.
