Nothing could better illustrate the wrong way to go about
remedying present economic evils than the program of the United
Mine Workers of America, as outlined by some of their representa
tives. ' ;' ' ' ,
It is said that the miners, most of whom are engaged in the
coal industry, are going to ask for a wage increase of -about 50
cents making probably $8 a day or more, and along with it a re
duction of working time to six hours a day and six days a week.
That would mean about $50 a week for 30 hours work.
Thirty hours work, if divided as usual among six days, would
mean five hours a day. .A-
It may be that the miners need a liberal wage increase to meet
the rising cost of living. It may be granted, too, that miners ought
to be well paid for the time they put in, because their work is hard,
disagreeable and dangerous. But when the demand for a big wags
increase is coupled with the demand for a big reduction in work
ing time, the absurdity of it ought to-be apparent to anyone fa
miliar with present economic conditions, , ;
We might leave out of consideration the insistent fact that the
world needs coal, as it needs all other commodities, and that any
industry which deliberately does anything to curtail production is
btiirking its duty and refusing to play" its part in the general re
. habitation Of the world. Considering the matter purely f rom the
standpoint of the miners themselves, we are likely to find the plan
operating in a vicious circle which defeats its own aims.
The .miners,' working shorter hours, naturally produce less
coal. That makes coal dearer for everybody. Obtaining higher
vvuges, they add still more to the cost of coal, ' Everybody elsp,
liaving to pay more for coal, has to charge more for his services
or output. Thus everything the miners themselves buy will soon
cost more. ' If everybody else put into effect this plan of the miners
we should simply have everybody doing less work, making less
wealth, and at the same time getting more money and prices gq
ing up an'd up and up, so that even the high pay would buy less
tlian usual, liecause there would be less to buy, since production
would be materially decreased. It would make money more and
; more worthless and in the end virtually destroying its purchasing
.value.; And the world would be ill-fed and poorly clothes because
the people had to a large degree ceased to work, just as the Rus
sians have since they adopted a similar program through revolu
tion against organized government. L'i
- There is really only one way to restore comfortable liv'ng con
ditions'. It is to increase production tof all the necessaries of life.
By Walt
The grocer overcharged two cents last evening, in his
tinhorn store; and he may raise some loud laments, but I
t-ball go there nevermore. Most any man may sting me
once, but that one instance should suffice; methinks I'd
be a first class clunce to let the same man sting me twice.
' I'll pardon any-man's mistakes, if there's no guile within
his heart; but when he makes malicious breaks, I say,
"Farewell- We twain must part! You classed me with
the easy jays, you hung the boob sign on my brow; hence
forth we go our divers ways, companions once, but stran
gers now." My trade the grocer soon will miss; I bought
large quantities of prunes; and he, his bosom filled with
bliss, raked in my hard-earned picayunes. The giant swind
; ler may arrive, and sting me sore in my own hall, sell bo
1 gus stocks in blocks of five, and I admire him for his gall.
'The polished grafter may appear, with every smooth and
modern curve, and leave me broke, or pretty near, and I
respect him forhis nerve. I smile-when highly gifted
gents get all the coin I have to spare; but when I'm stung
for seven cents I walk the: floor and tear my hair.

"My wonderful improvement since
taking Tanlac is the talk of all my
friends and: acquaintances,"' gaid W.
E. Curtis, a well known painting and
decorating contractor who lives at 812
West Grace Ave., Spokane, a few days
ago. - " - -
'' lTp to the time I commenced tak
ing Tanlac," continued Mr. Curtis,1
"1 hadn't iboen abio to do any work,
for about six months. I took to my bed
last Japuary and stayed thero Sor
three solid; months; and at one time my
tplks had given mo np to die. My kid
neys were in terrible condition, - and
nobody will ever know how I .Buffered
frum the pains in the small of my
back. That wasn't all that was wrong
with me, cither, for I had rheumatism
in my hands and feet, and : it just
deemed' that the awful aching pains I
had1 on this account would kill me. I
was down and out, all right, and I had
no idea that I would ever bo a well
man again. j
"A friend of mine, an insurance
man, "came out to see me ono day, and
he told mo how much good Tannic had
done, him, and advised me to give it a
trial. Well sir, I never saw anything
equal the way Tanlac. got after that
rheumatism, and in little or no time
the swelling was all . gone from my
hands, and feet, and now I never have
any sign of that awful trouble. The
pains in my hack are gono, too, and
my kidneys seem to ibe in porfect con
dition. I don't have to lie awake and
suffer agonies everv night now, but I
just stretch out in bed and sleep like
a boy-all night long: J have gained a
lot in weight and) strength, and in fact,
I was never in ibetter health in my
life. : Am back on the job, and never
lose any time nt all from my. work. So
you sec Tanlac ha proved to bo a real
medicine in my case, and as long as I
live I will boost it as strong as I can'"'

Hunting A Husband
I have been hunting for a place to
board. It all seems so hopeless. Small
dingy rooms, at fifteen dollars a week.
I can't pay that. My nest-egg has
dwindled so, that I must live carefully
as it is. So I turned away from the
only nice-looking boarding houses. i
Fifth avenue with its hurrying foui
o'clock crowds, I hardly saw. Only the
uniforms and the straight, tanned men
in them, I always looked at.
Much a splendid, well-groomed uniform
was. coming toward mo. I liked the line
of white showing above the- collar. I
liked the shining leather logging. And
yesr I -liked the nice boy 's face titular
the visored cap. 8uch a clear light in
the "blue eyes. Ho must be seeing vis
ions! " - t
Next minute those clear, shining eyes
were glancing at me. Looking at mo-i
mid then, "My little traveling compan
ion, he suid. Ho wns saluting me! '
Of course, it was my rrico boy! I had
met him on tho train traveling to Har
riet's. ;
Ho turned and walked with mo up the
aveirie. I found I was standing straight
er. I felt proud at the sidelong glances
cast nt me. He is such a- nico boy. Wc
mado the usual polite inquiries about
each other. Wo were .well, thank yon.
Yes, our parents were well. s
I said, " You look so happy." r
And he. "I am! I am loing to be mar
ried." ; He said it all with such pride.
"You arc 1 To whom?" I asked. ;
"To the loveliest little girl in tht
world AnneJones!"
"Anne Jones, you don't mean "
Yes, jt was the same one. I had so
much to say the words stumbled over
each other. . '
"But I don't know your name I "the
nice boy said. Of course, he didn 'i.
"Sara Lunc." ,
"Sara La'c;',' The boy spoke with
surprise. "Then you 'he the girl -who
started Anne. You took her to the see
retarial school. And it is yon slie speaks
of, as encouragine her. You were her
splendid example!"
"If I could onlv sav with little
gasp iu my voice.
Now the boy was telling me about it
all. . I did not see ajiything but hU vivid
fare and shining eyes. ,
"1 had always known Anno. When
I left to go 'out there' she was just the
gayest, prettiost girl that I knew. But
when 1 came back p month and a half
ago, all that -was changed. Anno was
working away at hep secretarial school.
She wanted to do something to help
along in tho war work. Something worth
while. - She was a more 'serious Anne.
And she said it was all duo to a girl
she had mct-a Sara Lane who had
been her inspiration!" The boy ended.
"I'm going back again. She's com
ing with me this time." Again he was
seeing visions. "Tou should come, too.
They eould use you out thero! "
We said good-by. The boy had reach
ed her corner. I turned one to look
after that tall figure, swinging along
wth firm step to her.
A warm glow of happiness was sweep
ing over mo. 80 I had encouraged Anne
Jones. I had made her worth while.
And I was her inspiration. That seem
ed almost impossible. But oh; how hap
py it mado me. That I counted. I had
been of some use in these last months.
Sometime, I too, may see vUioug as
bright as my nice boy's. 1

tomatieally to China at the peace con
ference," Williams said.-
"I called attention to the fact that
under the treaty of 1858 the United
States was bound to use its good' of
fices in such a case to help China and
suggested that a clause be drawn up
providing for the return of -the -territory
to China. -
"I was told to draw it up and to
confer with Dr. James Brown Scott of
the American delegation.' I did both.
Dr. -Scott suggested that the territory
and rights Germany- hod iu Shantung
bo hold in trust for China by the five
great powers.
"On . April 22- President Wilson ask
ed inc to consult widh the far eastern
experts of other powers.
'The president fold me that Great
Britain and France were bound to sup
port Japan by socre treaties.; . that
Lloyd George had said he . was bound
only to support the transfer of Ger
many's rights! and no mOre.
"I suggested as a eomproiniso a pro
vision that the German rights be trans
ferred to Japan, bocauso Japan .had
possession of rhein on condition that
Japan return everything to China with
in a year.
"The president said he hadn't con
sidered the question " from that angle
and asked mo to write my proposal.
"Two days later the British and
French far eastern experts and I join
ed in a memorandum which went to
President Wilson, Lloyd-Georgo .and
Clemenceau, stating: that in our opin
ion it would 'be less injurious to China
to order the transfer of tho territory
to Japan than to have the 1915 treaty
carried out. I told the other experts
that I-intended to write an independ
ent memorandum, declaring that neith
er of these things had been done, and
the British expert said ho Would do
tho same thing.
"1 . therefore, sent a memorandum
to President Wilson pointing out that
ho treaty of 1915 was extorted from
China !bv Japan through force. I ask
ed President Wilson if ho did not think
tho 1915 treaty was contrary to the
fourteen points, and lie replied that
unfortunately he did not believe the
fourteen points covered it. I pointed
out that the fourteen points had been
broadened in the president's Mount
Vernon speech and T believed this did
cover the matter. I said that in my

elaborated had - been accepted aa the
