Washington, Nov. 15.—The indus
trial commission today heard the testi
mony of I<. P. McCormack, labor com
missioner of the state of Indiana, and
ot Professor John G. Brooks, of Cam
bridge, Mass., president of the Na
tional Consumers’ League.
Mr. McCormack’s testimony was de
voted largely to the subject of arbitra
tion. He said that mode of settling
labor disputes was rapidly gaining
favor in his state. In some trades ar
bitration, he said, had almost sup
planted strikes, and in many branches
of industry contracts between employ
ers and .employes prescribed that in
lease of difficulty arbitration shall be
»resorted *o without cessation of work.
The result is constantly inreeasing good
feeling between employerand employe,
lie urged the necessity and wisdom of
enforced arbitration in extreme cases
where the interests of the public are
"concerned and where a long strike will
bring disaster to the people at large.
This method, he thought, would often
Rvert bloodshed, and he considered the
method more economical, as well as
more humane, than calling on the mili
tary. Mr. McCormack said that most
of the labor troubles were with unor
ganized lalior or new organizations,
the older organizations being the most
conservative. Mr. McCormack said
that while the labor organizations
jnight not be friendly to enforced arbi
tration, the interests of the public at
flarge always should be consulted rather
(than the wishes of the few directly en
gaged in a strike.
Professor Brooks’ testimony was de
voted to the question of work in the
sweatshops, in the investigation of
which he has been engaged for many
years. He said the Massachusetts law
works fairly well, but that in New
York and New Jersey the conditions
were almost deplorable.
states it was impossible to secure ade
quate inspection, because of the fact
that work is done in private apart
ments. The wages were the lowest
possible, and often were pieced out
with charity, making the competition
with high paid labor very tense. Peo
ple thus employed work from 14 to 16
hours per day, to the injury of their
own health and the damage of the com
“In New York,” said Professor
'Jlrooks, “politios get into the subject,
tendering it impossible to make inspec
tion. Unless there is some influence
brought to hear strong enough to allow
us to get at the private homes of these
people, the tragedy will go on indefi
nitely,” he said. He advocated the
substitution of factories, and argued
that the result need not, with the ubb
of proper machinery, be an increase of
the prices ot the goods manufactured.
The change also would result in higher
wages and an improvement of the gar
ments. He dwelt on the danger of
spreading disease through the shops,
saying it is always immin nt. Prices
were getting to be so low, Mr. Brooks
said, that Americans very seldom en
gage in the work. Most of the sweat
shop work is done by immigrants from

‘‘The native and mixed population

“The spiritual condition of those
natives is no better than their physical,

gold regions and along the river, where
their work may be seen.
“The Nome district is the moat pop

the summer about 18,000 people landed
at Nome, about 2,500 of those coming
from Dawson. About 12,000 have re
turned to their homes in the states,
leaving about 9,000 people in the region
contiguous to Nome.
It is probable
that the population of the town of
Nome during the winter will be be
tween 4,000 and 5,000.”

CHINESE DISCOVERED AMERICA.
Evidence Contained in Ancient Record*
Unearthed in Pekin.
Monterey, Mex., Nov. 17.—The re
port that American officers have un
earthed ancient records in I’ekin show
ing that the Chinese discovered Ameri
ca 1,500 years ago, and erected temples
in Mexico, has aroused the greatest in
terest among the scientific men of Mon
terey and throughout this country.
The Chinese temples alluded to are in
the state of Sonora, on the Pacific
coast. The ruin of one of the temples
was discovered near the town of Ures,
in that state, about two years ago.
One of the large ston6 tablvlJ found in
the ruins was coveied with carved
Chinese characters, which were partly
deciphered by a learned Chinaman who
visited the ruins at the request of the
Mexican government. This Chinaman
made the assertion at the time that the
ruins were those of a temple which had
been erected many centuries ago by
Chinese, but his statement was not re
ceived with credence.
It has been long claimed that the In
dians of the state of Sonora are the de
scendents ot the early Chinese settlers.
They possess many traditions and
characteristics of the Chinese. If the
report of the finding of these records
in Pekin is verified an expedition will
go from here to explore further the
ancient temples of Sonora.
