JiiiIkb Martin A. Kiuipp of the com
merce ' court talked interestingly be
fore the National Civic Federation of
the working of that section of the
Kidman ait providing for federal
meiliation in disputes between Inter
state carriers and their employes
threatening the public welfare. lie
declares that the law has been in
voked In numerous instances during
' the past six years and that in no case
has u strike followed the intervention
of mediators, lie therefore regards
the law as at least a promising inno
vation, and believes that the principle
will more and more lie extended into
business pursuits hitherto conducted
us private enterprises.
Contrasting the method of media
tion under the Erdman act with ad
judication in courts Of law, Judge
Knapp llnds tile latter method unsat
isfactory, of this he said:
A lawsuit does not look forward; it
usually looks backward. It concerns
somi'tiiiiig that has already happened,
some transaction or occurrence in dis
pute which the courts are called upon
lo xetlle. That is what emirls- of jus
lice are provided for, ami they an'
entirely suited to that purpose.
lint a. labor controversy does not
ordinarily rrlale to what has hap
pened: . it relates, rather, to what is
golim to happen. It looks lo the fu
ture, to the wages to be paid, to the
, hours iC labor to lie, required, to the
conditions of service which shall
thereafter obtain. Therefore, what
this plan of mediation contemplates is
that official assistance which will aid
tile parties themselves to compose
their difficulties and reach an amic
able understanding. Kor this reason
it hits been the conception of those
who have acted in this capacity that
their duty is not to determine what
sett lenient they think ought lo be
made but to find out what settlement
can be mnde.
The tendency is toward government
intervention in labor disputes and it
nun indeed be that this principle will
in a few year. be widely applied. The
interest of the public in every laboi
dispute is coming to be more nener
h!Iv recouni.ed. It is now to a greater
extent in some European countries
than in the I'nited States.

section, the way the street is now
blocked up, there would probably be
unnecessary loss on account of delay

According to the Republicans, their
opponents, overcome by affection for
the sugar trust, have mysteriously
chosen to help It bankrupt the con
sumer by letting down the tariff burs.
The promise of cheaper sugar, they
say, is deceptive. The price of the
staple will not he lessened. Vet the
beet sugar growers, who nre credited
with keeping the price down last year,
will somehow be forced out f busi
ness, and presumably because of lower
prices Pathetic reference is made
to the farmers engaged in this altru
The effectiveness of this warning is
somewhat lessened by an understand

from investigations of recent years,

pructlcally owns the beet sugar Indus

free lumber and Canadian reciprocity.
If we remember aright. Senator Over
man and six of the seven then denio-
ratic representatives from the state
lso voted against free lumber ai.d
that only Governor Kitc hin s brother

ator Simmons. With the exception ol
Representative Thomas, who was not
candidate, all of the House members
ho voted against free lumber ns Sen
ator Simmons did have been re-noml
nated and re-elected. They and the
three members who voted against
Canadian reciprocity us did Senator
Simmons are all candidates for re-
nomination this year.-
If Senator Simmons Is not a demo-
rut because of his vote against free
lumber, neither are Senator Overman

Dniderine is to the hair what fresh showers
of uin and sunshine are to vegetation. It
goes right to the roots, invigorates and
strengthens them. Its exhilarating, stimula
ting and life-producing properties cause the
hair to grow abundantly long, strong and
beautiful. It at once imparts a sparkling
brilliancy and velvety softness to the hair,
and a few weeks' use will cause new hair to
sprout all over the scalp. Use it every dav
for a short time, after which two or three
times a week will be sufficient to complete
whatever growth you desire.
Immediately after applying a little Dan
derine all dandiulf will disappear, all itching
of the scalp will cease and there will be no
more loose or falling hair.
If vou wish to double the beauty of your
hair in ten minutes surely trv this moisten
a cloth with a little Jjanucrine and draw it
carefully through your hair, taking one small
strand at a time, this will cleanse the hair of
dust, dirt or any excessive oil In a few
