President American Woolen Company
(Published by Arrangement With the Chi
cago Tribune.)
It ought not to be necessary to en
ter at this time any defense of the
large corporation In modern business.
We are living In an era not of small
but of great things.
The great business corporation Is half
a cause and half a result of the won
derful expansion of trade and Industry
which the twentieth century la wit
nessing. The great corporation has
helped mightily to bring this expan
sion about, and, on the other hand, this
expansion has made the great corpora
tion necessary and Inevitable.
In all this I am speaking of the great
business corporation, and not of that
other thing sometimes confounded with
it the huge, powerful monopoly "in
restraint of trade." There is no such
monopoly, now, nor Is there likely to
be. In the textile Industries of the
United States. Of the 1000 American
woolen and worsted mills, the American
Woolen Company owns and controls
thirty-four. Large mills some of these
are, but sufficing altogether to glva
the company,' so far as can ba esti
mated, no more than one-ninth of the
woolen and worsted business of the
United States, leaving eight-ninths to
Its 900-odd competitors.
Corporation; Has Rlghtfnl 'place.
The great corporation has ceased to
be an object of surprise; It ought grad
ually to cease to be an object of sus
picion. It has come to stay; there Is
a place for It in the world, but its
existence does not Imply that there Is
not going to continue to m a place for
other and smaller corporations. There
are In nearly all Industries and partic
ularly In the textile Industries, a great
many specialised forms of production
which lend themselves most readily
to relatively small but highly expert
and efficient organizations. In many
an Industry the great corporation has
served to stir the Industry as a whole
to renewed zeal, alertness and ambi
tion. It has been a potent tonic and a
wholesome stimulant.
Great corporations we are most cer
tainly always to have with us, and the
problem of how to deal with them
Justly and effectually promises to be
for some years to come one of the
most formidable problems of practical
government. More and more clearly

150,000 Heard Preacher and
$6 798 Is Received.
SEATTLE. Wash., Nov. 5. (Special.)
Gypsy Smith, picturesque) evangelist,
practically completed his conquest of
Seattle tonight, when he addressed
6000 persons in Mammoth Rink. The
meeting tonight epitomized tho two
weeks" work of the revivalist In this
city. He swayed his audience as he
pleased and at the close more than 400
had signed cards declaring their Inten
tion to enlist under tho Christian ban
ner and had given their hands to the
Gypsy in token of their decision.
In the two weeks the soul-stirring
Gypsy has made more than 4000 con
versions. His total attendance has ex
ceeded 150.000. The total receipts
wero J6798. It had been planned to
raise here 7000, half of It to be used
for the local expenses and half to go
to the London committee under whose
auspices Gypsy Smith Is traveling.
With one more meeting tomorrow. It Is
expected to secure this amount,
Gypsy Smith himself receives direct
ly no part of the $7000. He gets from
the London committee a flat yearly
salary of $3000 and expenses.
Clergymen declare the Gypsy's cam
paign has been of great service to their
Eastern Thanksgiving -Tables to Be

Because the artificial coloring of
oranges Is no longer permitted, by or

giving will be without oranges as far

Prominent orange shippers estimate
that this season's crop will be from two
to four weeks late because of the or
der. Heretofore, by use of the color
ing device, the first of the crop uu
ally have been In New' York and In

PASADENA. Nov. 5. In a flying; ma
chine that held together only through
the good will of Providence, Calbralth
P. Rodgers, the transcontinental avia
tor, glimpsed the Pexlfic Ocean today
as he soared over the gray top of
Mount Wilson, and settled down In
Tournament Park, amidst -a clamorous
multitude, waiting to welcome him at
what was virtually the finish of his
flight from Sheepshead Bay, N. Y.
Rodgers landed at 4:10 o'clock this aft
ernoon. He expects to fly out over the Pa
cific tomorrow. If the motor tha has
lifted and pushed him and his aero
plane through the air for a distance of
more than ,4000 miles, continues to do
its duty and thus make the epoch
marking feat, of aviation really an
ocean to ocean flight.
Astronomer. Get. First Glimpse..
Rodgers appeared on the sky line
shortly after 3 o'clock, a few moments'
after he had risen from . Pomona, 20
miles away. He was sighted first by
telescopes levelled at him from ths
solar observatory on Mojnt Wilson, and
word flashed down the mountain by
telephone caused a swarming of 20,000
people to Tournament Park.
The aviator, flying at a height of
5000 feet, hovered over the city for a
few minutes, then warping the planes
that previously had been as motion
less as the spreading pinions of a soav
lng eagle, he sailed in a wide spiral
and volplaned down to the greens
sward in the middle of Tournament
Crowd Roust la Greeting;.
Rodgers literally was mobbed. He
was borne hither and thither by the
surging crowd. Eager hands clutched
and scratched him. but his leather
clothing was strong enough to resist
attack, although afterwards the avia
tor declared his ribs would surely man
ifest tomorrow black and blue marks
of an over-enthusiastic greeting.
Rodgers started on the last dash of
his flight from Banning, a little town
out in the desert, where his arrival
had interrupted the only diversion of
the year the funeral dance of the Mo
Jave Indians. The aviator saw a
squaw, 101 years old, who had danced
ail night and day, fall In a swoon.
Then he took the air at noon.
His mechanicians had worked on his
motor almost without a halt since he
had landed in the desert town yes
terday and they- expressed the hopa
that it would hold out until the avia
tor reached Pasadena. The engine
started with a snort and clatter that
presaged good behavior and Rodgers
ascended gracefully In the face of a 20
mlle wind until be bad reached an alti
tude of 400 feet. Then he set his course
directly west and sparked his motor
up to a 0-mile gait.
Wife and Mother Follow On.
Rodgers' wife and mother, who have
been following him on a special train
all the way from New York, left Ban
ning Immediately afterward, and the
aviator flew away on a course laid
straight for San Gogornlo pass, a nar
row defile through which the Southern
Pacific Railroad tracks curl their way
to Colton.
The flyer arrived over Colton at 1:37
P. M. By this time he had increased
his altitude to 1000 feet and he kept
this height until he neared Pomona, 21
miles from Pasadena. He remained at
Pomona until after 3 o'clock, renewing
his supply of gasoline and refilling the
tank of the leaky radiator, which near
ly caused him a disaster yesterday.
After coming through the wind
swept defile of San Gogornlo, Rodgers
left behind him the stand, storm region
of the desert and passed Into the
orange belt, where the orchards
stretched continually along the sides
of the mountains and foothills from
Colton to Pasadena,
Aeroplane Soara Above Clouds.
After leaving Pomona, Rodgers kept
his biplane pointing upward until he
had ciimbed over the fleecy sheets of
vapor floating over the tops of ths
highest peaks of' the Sierra Madre,
Mountains. As he sped on to the finish
at Tournament Park he was on a level
