The Broken Labor Truce
And Causes Leading to It

By Ed L. Keen.
(t'nitod Press Btuff Correspondent.)
London, Oct. 9 (liy mail.) To sup-
noit hin chnrire' that capital hus ex
ploited lnlior during this war the Brit
ish worklngninn cites the employers'
own boohs Knowing, he snys excessive
profits from war business,., lie cites
for oxnmples; . , .
Spiders, flour millers of Cardiff, last
year declared a profit of 1 ,8:15,000, an
increase of $1, 135,000 over the uverngo
. of the last 3 years. The i'owoll Diif
Trvn Colliery company, profit $2,110,
Olio, increase (650,000; Ebb Vale' Coul
&, Iron company, profit $710,000, in
crease $325,000; Lanchet Brothers,
profit $780,000, increase $280,000. -
Practically nothing was dono by the
Bovornment to control the gradually
uonring retail prices of foodstuffs. Em
ployers refused to Increase wages suf
1'ieently to meet tho new conditions. In
Novoniber, 1914, the Journal of Com
merce said:
"The opportunities now open to
British shipping nro obvious, Herman
ships swept off the sea, wo have no
Horious competitors in tho carrying
trade of the world." Just after this

It was the business as usual policy
thnt aroused tho worklugincn. They bo-
gnn demonstrations. At first thcro
was no suggestion of striking. But
demonstrations and resolutions brought
no results. itKAL wages steadily de
clined. Except In munitions trades
ithore overtime was paid, NOMINAL
wages wore stationary. To date, to
offset the 40 per cent increase in liv
ing cost, wages in orgn nixed trades
trades have increased only 10 por cent;
and in unorganised trades hardly at all.
Of nearly ten million workers not
inoro than three million have received
increases. Only the threat of con
certed industrial action induced em
ployers to concede this much mainly
in war bonuses, labor says.
Moreover, tho war was being con
ducted in Bilonco, Tiuu government
wouldn't tell what was happening.
Theio was no incentive for the work
ingmnu to show interest in tho war's
progress; thero was every incentive for
III in to show increased interest in his
own welfare.
8c the industrial truco, declnred at
the beginning, was broken. Despite
this thero have been only thirty strikes
since August, 1014 involving more than
250 workers each. The biggest of these
were the Clyde and South Wales coal
strikes, in both of which, ulthough the
truco was violated, there was no viola
tion of contracts. Notice was given
by tho unions of their demand for a
now agreement to replace the one about
to expire. Thore would have been no
strike if tho men had followed the ad
vice of their leaders, who endeavored
to keep the truce. The men wore angry.
They insisted that on patriotism there
should bo one rule for employer and
employed. If it was patriotic for em
ployers to pilo up enormous war prof
its it was not unpatriotic for employes
to demand a portion of them for the
men suffering financially because of
tho war. The men won a partial vic
tory, largely, t'noy say, because the
government finally realized the justice
of their. contentions. Both strikes wore
the result of revolt against exploita
tion. In neither cose nor in any of
the minor strikes did the workors ask
for a larger increase) than the rise in
the cost of living warranted. In prac
tically every casd tho advances have
been inadequate to meet tho now con
ditions of life, the men say.
Labor feels that tho attitude of the
British press has widened this gujf be
tween emplovers and employes. The
strikers have been cnllod traitors. Thero
has been practically no condemnation
of the employers. Tho press has charg
ed that (lerninn gold made this indus
trial unrest, but no proof of this has
been shown.
Much has been said of the enmity of
tho men in tho trenches toward the
strikers. Here is one stoy on the
other side:
It was the night before the mon of
tho Olnmorgau colliery wore to vote on
the strike, Jnek niigiios, chairman,
had been advised by Tom Richards, la
bor member of Parliament from that
district, to go slow. "Think it woll
over," said Richards. "Remember

Thursday and Friday of this week, and
Christmas vacation will begin with the
closing of the Schools Thursday even

the opening of 'the schools, Monday

taken by the school directors at a reg

As the threo junior high schools each
have libraries and require special at

assistant librarian for the term of 7
months at a salary of $20 a month.
Permission was given Mr. LaMoiuo

to attend the session of the Tdarion

The request of the Parent Teacher's
association of the Lincoln school to
erect play sheds at tho school, was re
ferred to the committee on buildings
and grounds. This committee will
meet with those interested in the Lin

plav sheds desired.
As the boys in the manual training
class are ambitious to make something
of real value, permission was given
them to erect a garage and dispose of
it to the highest bidder, the money so
roce.ivod, to be turned into this depart
ment of the schools.
Regarding the proposed bridge across
Thirtoenth street, near the Washington
junior high school, the board was or
the opinion that it would be more con
venient to build it from Twelfth street,
as tho Thirteenth street location was
rather out of tho way. The building
of this bridge was proposed by the
building committee of the city council,
as a means to keep the pupils from
crossing on the railroad bridce when
going to the athletics-grounds. The
matter was referred to the building
and grounds committeo to act with the
committee trom the council.
A petition from the boys of the
Radio club for permission to erect two
toot stations on the roof of the

to the building committee. While the

Housewives Advised
On Care of Plants
Washington, D. C, Nov. 23Adviee
to housewives on the bathing, feeding
and care of potted plants has just been
issued by Uncle Sam and his plant . in
dustry experts.
Rubber plants need a sun bath every
day. Their feet should be kept damp,
but not wot. The leaves should bo
washed twico a week in good sonpsuds
and rinsed in clear wntr. When inn
pot gets too full of roots, re-pot the
puuii. r.verv runner plant should nave
a prepared food square meal twico a
month! Give It a dose of dilutod am
monia occasionally, too.
With regard to tho housewifo's pot
ted plants generally, Uncle Sam says
she should chase the wooly white mealy
bugs and the little red aiita away from
them with a tooth pick. She may
drown the red spider with a squirt guii.
If the bugs and spiders shatter your
preparedness program, von are advised
to cut tho plants off within an inch of
their livos and throw them away. They
will grow again.
The ercon fly, which is not so green
as it looks, won't bother your plants
if you keep them well bathed and

How Will Carranza Finance
His Desolated Republic Now?
(United Press correspondent.)
Washington, D. C, Nov. 23. Will
Uncle Sam become Mexico's financial
angel f This question is the absorbing
problem involved iu establishing the
Carranza government.
That financial help must be given by
the United States to Mexico is admit
ted by officials. The form such aid
should take is the principal hitch. High
state department officials intimate that
the government cannot appear as a
principal in securing, credit for Car
ranza. Its moral support, however, is
The modus operandi probably will be
as follows: After Carranza 's agents
iu New York have made guarded over
tures to financiers for a loan, quiet
inquiries will be made of the state de
partment if such a loan has the approv
al of tho government. Inquiry will be
made as to whether the U. 8. would
buck, up the loan in case Carranza 's
government should fall and collection
from a new administration be made
necessary. If agents of financiers re
ceive such assurances, the loan will be
made, with bonds of the new Mexican
government as security.
That Carranza must secure his loan
in this country is regarded as certain.
Europe's money marts are not open to
him. It is possible he might place part
of a bond Issue with Argentine bank
ers. The bulk of the transaction must,
however, be handled by New York fin
anciers. Re-establishing Mexico's financial
system presents many difficulties to
Carranza. Hundreds of counterfeit is
sues of money are afloat. Villa has is
sued millions of currency now value
less. In Mexico City alone there are a
score of repudiated issues. Huerta's
currency is worthless.
Carranza, who has announced that he
will establish a gold standard for Mcx
ica, with a new currency system similnr
to the federal reserve act of this coun
try, but he probably will not be ablo
to do it until a new Mexican congress
is legally elected.
Regarding the immense debt burden
faced by Carranzn, payment will be ef
fected, according to information hero,
through clnim commissions. Carranza
will assent to mixed claims commissions
to deal separately with each country
presenting claims. Assurance by Cnr
ranza thnt he would honor foreign
claims was one of the conditions upon
which he was recognized as chief execu
tive. These claims total about $300,
000,000. The Mexican unmixed clnimB commis
sion will, it is reported, bo composed
of representatives of the interested na
tions, but the U. S. will not officially
participate iu collection of claims of
other nations.
The claims Carranza assumes run
back five years from the ousting of
President Diaz. No claims for proper
ty destroyed and confiscated during
that and successive revolutions have
ever been paid. This involves lengthy
and complicated negotiations before
payment of the claims, to establish na
tional responsibility for property losses
in tho many major and minor revolts.
Solicitor Cone Johnson of the state
department, has aetivo charge of the
Americaa clnims. Many of these have
been on file for years, awaiting re
establisliment of a stablo government
from which pnyment could be demand
ed. Railroad, mining, oil and ranch
ing interests are the principal Ameri
can claimants. Americans aro stock
and bond holders of the Mexican na
tion and other railroads and telegrnph
companies which have suffered the
brunt of revolutions.
Only a small part of the American
claims, whioh now aggregate about
$150,000,000, have been filed with the
state department. Others aro boing re
ceived daily.
(Beauty Notes)
Merely applying an inexpensive
paste to a hairy surface, say beauty
specialists, will dissolve the hairs. This
paste is mado by mixing a little water
with some powdorcd delatono; after
about 2 minutes it is rubbed off and
the skin washed. This Bimple method
not only removes every trace of hair,
but leaves the skin free from blemish.
To insure success with this treatment,
be careful to get real delntone.
