"Hiring and firing," all large cniploy crs of labor now recognize, forms the greatest leakage in modern business. Jn many establishments the men who do the employing have come to be known- as "the fortune-tellers." ft is the one place in which everything is haphazard. Air. Magnus W.

Their normal increase in em ployes, therefore, was C,,(i!t7.

THE LABOR ADVOCATE State Constabularies Come In Very Handy as Strike Breakers Conduct of Force in Pennsylvania Shows It to Be Wholly Controlled By the Steel Trust and Obeys Orders to the Limit of Tyranny, Declares Official. 7 is Is the Scheme Advocated For Ohio By Col. William Cooper Procter. Strong evidence in official documents, abundant in quantity and easily avail able, proves that many of the county courts and some of the more venal and subservient county and municipal offi cials in Pennsylvania back up the State constabulary in its shameful lawlessness and reckless disregard of the rights and lives of the people, especially the work ing people. This is particularly true in the portions of the Stale which are wholly or largely under the domination of the Steel Trust, the coal barons and other big corporate interests. Yet even in those sections there is a deep-seated, widespread and intense op position to this mounted police force because of its almost total devotion to the serv...

Efforts were made here today to secure pardons for Miss Fannie Sellins and three miners who arc serving terms in West "Virginia jails for contempt of Court in connection with the coal strike at Colliers, W. Va., two years ago. Appeal was taken from the sentence of Judge A. G. Dajton and the cases went to the United States Supreme Court, where the lower Court was sus tained. President Wilson then inter vened through a reprieve and the pris oners were released. It was then found this would not serve to cancel the sen tences and Miss Sellins and the miners were returned to jail. It was stated here that Stuart W. Walker, United States District Attorney, and leaders of theAmcrican Federation of Labor were behind the movement for a pardon.

Sclicr cschcwsky, of the Federal jtublic health service, together with otlier liealtli au thorities, disagreed with mechanical ex perts before the fourth annual Indus trial and Efficiency Conference, that "four per cent of the industrial mishaps to workers could he remedied by better equipment, but the other accidents were due to the men." A workman toils in a poorly lighted room; his eyes become fatigued; there is an accident. Is that the fault of the man? asked these medical men. Shop ventilation is poor; the work man is poisoned with foul air and be comes stttpified; there is an accident the fault of ventilation. Sickness, said the doctors, was in most cases an industrial accident, gen erally due to poor working conditions. There are IIO.HIIO.OW) workers in the country. Each one of them averaged nine days of preventable sickness a year, or 210,000,01)0 days wasted. Foremen who took no thought of...

Oruanizctl labor in Oliio probably will declare for mally against an embargo on foodstuffs when the executive board of the State Federation of Labor meets here this month. That an embargo might later spread to proportions which would cripple American industries and injure work ingmen's interests is the feeling of cer tain labor leaders.
