MINE WORKERS HEAD.
Ai president of the largest labor
rganimition in the world the United
Aline Workers with 400,000 members
John P. White has given the News
paper Katerprise Association a state
ment pointinif out that the rights of
the working man are at stake in this
rampaign and will be endangered bv
the election of Hughes.
Mr. White tells -why wage earners
houtil look with grnvc fears on the
fitceos of the republican candidate..
Jt ia a significant mid remarkable
tatement that should be read by everv
man interested in the welfare of
working men ami women.
Said Mr. White:
"tVr every working man and wo

sentiment ngainst the deinands of their
trainmen for nn eight-hour day.
''These millions did not come from

or the railroad owners," says Senntor
hn Follette. ''They eaino foin the

"This eight-hour law has been culled

strike. 1 believe they did right."
Senator Cummins riddles the prepos
terous claims of both Mr. Hughes arid
his campaign malingers and declares
the child labor law as enacted by con
gress anil signed by President Wilson
is certain to "effectuate, the humane
purposes toward which the friends of
child labor legislation hnvo for a long
time been striving.'.' . ,
Senator Cummins' statement is not
only n complete nnswer to these at
tacks, but is a timely mid stem re
buke to those responsible for giving
them publicity. Ilia views are set
forth in a letter to Owen H. Lovejoy,
general aeeretary of the national child
labor committee, written September 2:1.
"If Republicans are making any
such ehnrge ngainst the law in order
to discredit the administration," Sena

who are foolish enough to give cur

to dispute the cry that America is in

Saturday afternoon of the I'hilodosian
girls in their hulls at the university.
The niujestie. splendor of the ancient
temples, the strange decipherings of
the Delphian oracles, the lutes and
strains of Apollo, the golden harvest
fields of Ceres, the spinning of the
fates, all were reproduced to make a
(Irecian holiday. The beautiful simplic
ity and clussie iniprossiveness of the
I'hilodosiun 's gowns added a touch to
the occasion which reminded ninny
who attended of the fair Helens and
Dianas of whom the bnrds have sung
in the immortal Hinds and tMysseys.
Receiving the guests were Miss Vio
let Maclean, president of the Philo
dosiau society, Mrs. tiustav Ebsen, Mrs.
William E. Kirk, Mrs. Carl tlregg Do
ney, Mrs. R, L, Mathews and Miss
Fannie McKeuuou. Simple programs
enrryiug out the Crecinn idea were
then distributed bv Miss Louise lienseu
who divided the guests into groups to
visit the respective temples. The Tem
ple of Diana contained many speci
mens of sculpture nnd was ruled by
Miss Irina Hotsford. Following was the
tirade of Delphi with Miss Jessie llol
comb presiding and rending the pnlms
of all who tarried near that mysterious
temple. The spindle, distaff and spin
ning wheel next invited the loiterers
to learn how long the threads of life
would be spun. Here the three graces
were represented by the Misses Kuth
Creen, I.ncile Jnskoski and Maude
Maclean. Tempting the guests with the
delicious ambrosia, the immortal brow
of the gods, was the Temple of Itacchus
under the sceptre of Miss Fannie Me
Kennon. Last came the Cerean Temple
where inviting tidbits were served by
Saix charming nymphs directed by Mias
Barbara Steiner. At vnrinua times

by Victor Murdock, and official organ

The editorial, a lengthy article,
charges Hughes has shown by his
fight on the Adamson law and other

should be defeated, and urges the re

TWO VEWS. OF QUEEf-l RrtlLKORD .WfSECK AT
A train from llousiitonic urriving at
Bridgeport, Conn., struck a team of hor
tes drawing a heavy truck while cross
ing a giade in the city of Bridgeport.
While the driver was hurrying his hors
es across the tracks one "of tho whela
of tho truck became wedged in a switch.
The train struck the wagon, and when
the wagon was torn from where it had
been struck it released the switch,
which caused the train to lake a siding.
It was impossible for the engineer to
slop the train, which was going at a
high rate of speed, and the engiuc jump
ed the track, (curing itself loose from
the care, and rolled down the embank
ment about twenty feet, where it strt k
mother wagon mid killed two horses
drawing the same. The driver of thin
truck was uninjured. The driver of the
first truck wus killed, instantly. Many
passengers on the train were reported
injured, and ambulance culls were sound
ed all over the city of Bridgeport. Had
the triiin gone twenty-iive feet farther
on it would huve leaped off the end of
a viaduct, causing great loss of life.
The pictures show two views of tho
vrccked engine after it had struck ami
demolished the second wagon. The en

themselves by jumping before their en
