Collins was commander-in-chief of
the Irish free state army, chair

His loss, combined with that of
Arthur Griffith on August 13, will
affect Ireland in a manner now im
possible to conceive.
Moaning Announces Death.
The correspondent learned of the
tragedy in a dramatic manner. He
was sitting in the Brunswick street
police station here when he was
startled by the sound of moaning
in the corridors. Then General
Beaslie, the chief censor, walking
with bowed head and unable to
still his grief, came into the room,
where he gave the news which he
had just received from general
The managing editor of the Free
man's Journal, himself on the
verge of tears, hurried across the
street on the receipt of the news
to order the rules turned for the
second time within two weeks.
He said: "It means to Ireland
what Abraham Lincoln's assassina
tion meant to America."
"For God's sake," said a hotel
porter forgetting to close the door.
Some See Curse on Country.
A taxicab driver stopped dead
still, letting his cigarette go out,
when he heard the news. Some
superstitious persons asserted that
a curse was on the country. Others
asked what would Ireland do now.
Mr. Collins, with Commandant
General Fistan Lynch, an aide and
a driver, left Dublin, on Sunday
morning in a high-powered four
seated motor car of special make,
which recently had been presented
to him by admirers. I saw him on
Sunday afternoon at Limeridt,

While the route was not announced
U is known that Mr. Collins in

cities which had been recently oc

them it was necessary to pass
through many miles of country in
which roamed small bands of ir

What Should Be Wife's Allowance

(Bv Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
NEW YORK, Aug. 22. What is
the proper amount of alimony for
the ex-wife of a man who spends
?43,000 a year on a chorus girl?
Supreme Court Justice May, in
Brooklyn, reserved decision today
on the application of Mrs. Hildure
Sterne, of Beechurst, L. I., for $200
weekly alimony and $4000 counsel
fees, to consider the problem. Mrs.
Sterne, asking divorce, seeks also
temporary alimony pending trial of
her suit, and Allan S. Locke, special
referee, recommended today that
she be given $75 a week temporary
alimony, $750 counsel fees and $500
to pay living bills incurred since
she started action against her hus
band. The young wife's charges against
Sterne, who lives in Manhattan, and
according to Mrs. Sterne, derives
$75,000 yearly from his import and
export business, include undue inti
macy with Helen R. Meyers, former
Winter Garden beauty, on whom it
is alleged he spent $43,000 in the
principal cities of Europe between

LIFT PAY OF 300,000
THREE BIG COMPANIES' AC
TIOX IS SURPRISE.
Financial District Taken Back
Because Other Revisions Are
. Generally Downward.
NEW YORK, Aug. 22. (By the
Associated Press.) Three big steel
corporations, employing normally
nearly 300,000 workers, today an
nounced a 20 per cent wage increase
for ail day laborers in their manu
facturing plants. The United States
Steel corporation took the lead, but
was quickly followed by the Midvale
Steel & Ordnance company and the
Youngstown Sheet & Tube company.
In the absence of Charles Schwab
and Eugene Grace, of the Bethlehem
Steel corporation, no other official
of that company would commit him
self. Secretary Brown said, how
ever, he did not know of any action
tvmt hod been taken on the wage
question. President Matthews of the
Crucible Steel corporation said nis
company had taken no action "as
yet." It was generally believed in
financial circles that all important
independent steel firms would an
nounce Increases within a few days.
News of the increase came as a
surprise to the financial district
probably because wage adjustments
in other industries have been gener
ally downward. It was followed by
slight recessions in the price of steel
No expU nation of the increase was
given by the steel corporations.
However, it is known that the immi
gration law has cut off the supply
of unskilled laborers which formerly
drifted to the iron and steel centers.
When the labor shortage became
acute last spring and the steel in
dustry began to show signs of re
habilitation, temporary relief was
afforded by the employment of men
thrown out of work by the coal

STEEL MEN'S PAY LIFTED

NEW YORK, Aug. 22. Four sur

strike today, any one of which, ac

and brotherhoods, may vitally in

tion of Railway Executives' when
it meets- tomorrow to consider peace

big five brotherhoods. They -were:
1. The announcement that pres
idents of three powerful eastern

especially since their respective vice
presidents have been the nucleus of
the group which, in conference of
the national arsociation, has con
sistently fought against any peace
plan which included reinstatement
of strikers with seniority rights un
impaired. Strikers Welcome Decision.
The decision of the steel corpora
tions to raise the wages of laborers
just 24 hours prior to the scheduled
meeting of the executives was
hailed by the strikers as a point in
their favor. It not only justified
their refusal to accept wage cuts
fixed by the railroad labor board,
they said, but was ample proof of an
impending Industrial boom which
would put the railroads, with their
thousands of bad order cars, more
than ever in need of their old repair
"This wage increase will put con
siderable fire into the veins of rail
road labor," declared David Wil
liams, secretary of the eastern
strike committee. "The railroad
man will find it hard to understand
why he should get $2.75 a day when
he could get $4 for the same work
in the steel mills.
"If the railroads don't settle with
the shopmen, it will be doubly diffi
cult for them to hold the unskilled
crafts in line."
Rail Headu Are Silent.
Rail heads refrainea from discus

steel company's move on rail strike
negotiations. They were, neverthe
less, quick to offer numerous rea

headed by L. F. Loree, that the
trike be allowed to continue "as a
finish fight," rather than let it be
settled by returning seniority rights
to the strikers.
In other quarters the rise for the
steel men was interpreted as an
attempt to forestall a shortage of
labor when coal mines get into full
action again and roads are called
upon to take up the additional bur
den of record crop movements. Still
others decided it might bring the
wage question back to complicate
the strike, which now has simmered
down to a battle over seniority
Similar Views Voiced.
Although Mr. Loree today dis
claimed any intention of .putting the
brakes on strike negotiations, after
declaring that "this talk of peace is

New York Convention Approves
Long Skirts; Jazzy Music
Is to Be Banned.
(By Chicago Tribune Leased Wire.)
NEW YORK, Aug. 22. The shim
my, the Chicago, the various forms
of sinuous swaying and shuffling
dances, are "out." The ban applies
to everything "Ritzy" in a terpsicho
rean form. And jazz music is passe.
This is official. The International
Dancing Masters' association and
the National Association of Dancing
Masters in convention here today
decreed these things. Both organi
zat'ons okehed long skirts down to
the ankles, but not trailing.
The old waltz, with its decorous,
dreamy sway, is coming in again, it
was decided. Tradition is about to
reverse itself and the old order will
replace the new. Elimination of the
laughing trombone, moaning saxo
phone, piping clarinet and other
weird orchestral noises from the
modern dance orchestra, will go far
to hasten the passing of many of the
more objectionable steps. In the
opinion of the dancing masters.
Up-to-date dance orchestras, it
was agreed, will in future play dance
numbers in faster time, giving dan
cefs Jess opportunity to Interpolate
hops, struts or wriggling body move
ments. Introduction of symphonic
effects in dance music in place of
the familiar razz, jazz, shriek and
clash of the recent past was urged.
A few of the dancing masters said
the dress and manners of modern
girls favored "wriggling dances."
