The Shorter Working Day. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 4 May 1900
The Shorter Working Day. There are, of course, many things to be most carefully considered and adjusted before any change in the number of working hours can go into effect. Unfilled contracts, or established prices for product, are the most obvious; the longer hours of idleness for expensive plant can by no means be ignored. But with proper compensation in the manner of working, ' there is little question that the hours of working might be materially reduced without loss of wage earnings to ° the workman nor increase of cost of product to the employer. Actual practice under the piece-work system has proved this too often and too definitely to leave much room for argument on the other side. In fact, the theorem that a man's labor production is directly proportional to his hours of working, is almost as fallacious as the trade-union proposition that the amount of wage-winning work in the world is a definite quantity, and will be exhausted sooner by more diligent working. — Charles B. ...
The Unworked Iron Ores of Labrador. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 4 May 1900
The Unworked Iron Ores of Labrador. Under present conditions the ores of the interior and j Ungava Bay are useless, owing to the lack of railway or other communication. The deposits on the islands of Hudson Bay lie immediately alongsido the deep water, and so there would be no difficulty in loading on shipboard, but the long carriage through Hudson strait and the shortness of the season *of navigation (3} months) are serious considerations in connection with the profitable working of these deposits. No coal exists about Hudson Bay, or in Labrador, and the wood for charcoal, would have to be transported from the southern part of Hudson Bay. The only supply of fuel in the neighborhood is found in the great masses of driftwood on the islands and shores of the bay, and it is doubtful if this would answer the purposes of smelting. There are excellent water powers in the neighborhood, which might be used if a cheap method of electric smelting were discovered. — A. P. Low, in the Engineeri...

One of . the young men in charge of .them managed in some manner to get them out . before any damage was done, except to frighten Ila and Oda Ginocchio, and a number of young girls who were visiting them, nearly into hysterics. The horses were fresh from pasture and were unshod so even the hall carpet escaped without a scratch. The occurrence created quite a commotion for a few minutes. Mr. and Mrs. Ginocchio were not at home at the time.

He was reported to be wealthy, but lived as a miser. His relatives ransacked the house, and in the mattress of his bed found bonds and securities worth $30,000, and titles for property in Jersey City valued at $20,000. Kopple is the man who, some time ago, was nearly killed by tramps. Although they lighted candles near his bare feet for almost an hour, he refused to divulge the secret."
