THE SPRINGFIELD NEWS
OUR DYES ARE
Women Can Get All Colors Hero
Obtained from Abroad
Before tho War
PRICE NOT DUE TO LABOR
But to Scarcity of Raw Materials
, Used In Munition Plants,
Says, I. F. Stone
This country Is now producing such
a wide variety of dyestuffs that wom
en are able to get practically all of
vthefcblor effects for their clothes that
they got before tho war, when this
pountry was dependent on Germany
tor Its dyes, according to I. F. Stone,
iT6ldent of the National Aniline ami
Chemical Company. Mr. Stone made
this statement yesterday in an ad
dress at the closing session ot .tho
Second Annual Silk Convention In
Paterson, N. J., which was attended
lrj about 300 of the largest silk man
Bfacturers in tho United States. ' He
predicted that soon this country would
fce producing all necessary dye colors,
and in as good quality as ever came
Benzol, from which most aniline
iyes are derived, is now being pro-
'dnced in this country at the rate of
30,000,000 gallons a year, as against
3,000.000 gallons before the war, Mr.
"There is a popular Impression that
.American manufactured colors are not
as good as those manufactured in
Europe, in Germany, particularly,"
3Jr. Stone said. r'This Impression I
wish definitely to correct. American
colors are made from practically the
same chemical fomulae as those of
Europe and are practically the same
product in every way. The whole sit
uation is at present very satisfactory
and every American consumer should
be able to procure practically every
thing he needs for next year.
'.i'"lt has been understood by the pub
lic that American colors are not as
fast as European colors, and it seems
to be the custom now for saleswomen
and others in the stores as well as the
garment dyers to state specifically
that they do not guarantee the colors
because they are no longer able to get
foreign colors. I wish to say that as
far as I know no manufacturer or re
tailer ever guaranteed colors before
the war, although that fact may not j
have been mentioned, and the only
reason it Is mentioned now is through
'a misunderstanding of the situation.
SVmcy colors which women usually
want in silk, such as pinks, light .
bines, light greens and heliotrope,
were never fast, and as far as
I know there never have been any
dyes which would make them fast.
The word "fast" is more or less a
snlsr.omer, as a color which is abso-J
lutely fast to everything is practically I
.Mr. Stone said that there was a ,
general misapprehension regarding
the reason for the present high prices
charged for American-made dyes, and
that it was not due to the fact that lab
or was higher here than in Europe,
as generally supposed, but that ab
normal conditions generally and the
higher price of raw materials, the raw
materials used in dye making being
practically the earno as those used in
the manufacture of munitions. The
prices of American colors would be
"Barms! after the war, he said. He '
declared that the infant dye Industries
of this country should be protected I
by tariff to prevent their annihilation !
by European competition immediate- j
.ly after the war. j
S The manufacturers at the silk con
vention, who in the past have been
said to be opposed to a high dye tar
iff on the ground that American dyej
were far Inferior to the European
products, went on record as approving
Sir. Stone's suggestion after he had
finished speaking by passing a res
olution recommending a specific duty
of 5 per cent, a pound plus 30 per
cent ad valorem on Imported dye
stuffs. JT. Kawashlma, a representative of
the Japanese embassy In Wahsington,
was sent to the convention as the
olDclal representative of the Japanese
Ambassador, He told of the import
ance ot America's silk trade to Jap
an, and said that It would help main
tain frendly relations between the
countries. In the fiscal year ended
June 30, 1916, he asserted, tho raw
elTk and silk manufacturers Imported
by this country from Japan aggregat
ed "?93,500,000. The United' StateB
Imported Jp.er cen,t of all its raw
silk from Japan last year.

A Visit to Ireland
Tho Sovcnth I) class of Springfield
have conio across tho United States
to Now York. I Jolnod them at Now
York on tho Olympic
Tho crowd consisted ot tho Seventh
B class, Mr. and Mrs. Burk and Mr.
Htchardson our geography teacher.
Wo started on our trip to Ireland
on a cold frosty morning. Tho Olym
pic, a sister to tho lllfated Titanic
being SS0 feet long.
Whllo on board tho ship wo hud
some Interesting adventures, Ono
morning Hazel Brattnln could not bo
found on deck. I ran down to her
borth and there sho lay seasick.
About two o'clock that afternoon,
Mr. Burk called us to where ho was
standing and wo all saw a largo whalo.
Hoping its big tall In tho water and
making tho water splash.
Our ship had many bed rooms or
cabins. It has big parlors with pia
nos, easy chair and great sofas upon
which wo had lots of tun.
Our ship moves along by means of
great screws at the stern. It almost
goes as fast as a railroad train. Tho
captain said It would take us about
sis days to cross tho Atlantic.
We hear a lonp blow ot tho fog
horn which makes us all Jump when it
blowed. It blows1 quite often.
We saw a Iceberg floating down the
ocean toward the equator. It had comn
from the polar-region. Thoro was a
large polar bear on the top of tho Ice
berg . Ho was white and we girls
wished we had a muff ot his fur.
We get oft at Queenstown with all
Europe in front ot us.
Wo choose to go to look In jaunt
ing cars. Cork Is 12 miles from
Our cars are only 2 wheeled carts.
The seats are high over tho wheels.
We sit in couples to watch the fields
behind us. The driver sits at tho side
instead ot the front.
We soon get used to our cars and
then the rido is delightful.
We come to park of wide spreading
oaks and tall elms with an Ivy por
ters lodge at the entrance of the gate.
Beyond it is a great mansion or castlo
that shines out between the trees. The
driver tells us it belongs to a rich
earl or lord of England. The lord has
about 1,000 acres ot land about the
We ride in this beautiful land un
til we come to Cork .
After we leave Con; we see the
Blarney Castle. Where the Earl ot
Clancarthy lives. We climb to the top
of the tower and see pretty scenery.
This castle is very old, Oliver Crom
well destroyed one part of It,
We come to the peat beds which
we wanted to see. Peat Is like a
spongy vegetable matter that can be
called half grown coal.
Peat is the chief fuel of Ireland.
Peat makes a hot fire. It doesn't blaze
like wood. It gives a pale blue smoko.
We come to Dublin, the capital of
Ireland. Its a very pretty city but
we only stay there long enough to
catch the next train to Belfast.
We come to Belfast which is about
as large as Washington, D. C. Bel
fast has a wonderful harbor. Its the
chief manufacturing city of Ireland.
It can get coal from Scotland very
cheap because Its so near.
The linen mills 'of Belfast are es
pecially fine. The most beautiful
tablecloths and napkins are made, hero
The largest linen mills of the worlJ
are at Belfast.
The flax is grown by the farmers
and it is made into thread by people
and some are by mills. Some- of the
Irish girls work one month on a sin
gle linen handkerchief making it by
Belfast makes wonderful steel
ships. We did not get to visit the
ship building. We will proceed on our
Journey to Scotland.

flcloncy totals. Tho total appropria
tions mado by tho 1915 legislature u
mounted to C,310,S48.
Could Levy Any Amount
Institutions and departments lmvo
asked for Increases over tho amounts
allowed two years ago, amounting to
some $500,000 or moro, so that tho tax
commission is being nskod to inako
provision for possible appropriations
of about J6,S0O,O0O for state purposes.
It is tho apparent theory ot tho gov
ernor and Mr. Kay that If tho stato
levy Is made prior to tho Issuance ot
tho governor's proclamation putting
tho tax limitation amendment into ef
fect, tho umount levied against each
county will become a prior and valid
debt against tho county and duo tho
stato, collcctiblelnlaw. Should this
theory bo sustained, the state could
levy $1,000,000,000 If It so desired, and
the counties would bo compelled to
pay. Tho effect upon county finances
can be readily conceived.
Tho mandate of the governor and
Mr. Kay Is obliviously intended to lift
tho state government from tho Juris
diction ot the tax limitation amend
ment, give tho legislature a free hand
to make what appropriations it may
desire, and leave the counties of the
state to hold the sack. More than
that, Irrespective of the appropria
tions which may be made by the leg
islature, if the levy proposed hi certi
fied to the counties by the secretary
of state, the counties will bo compel
led to raise and pay the sums com
puted Into the state treasury, oven
though they may not be needed to
meet stato expenses after the legis
lature has finished its work and ad
journed. Under the plan; the stato
stands to win from the counties, no
matter which way the cards run.
