COMBINATION V3 COMBINATION
In hi3 testimony before the In
dustrial Commission Charles M.
Schwab, president of the billion
dollar steel combine, favored th
Commission with some of -his views'
on the labor question and labor
unions. Mr. Schwab does not be
lieve in labor unions on general
principles and in labor unions where
organizations like his great steel
combine are interested in particular.
Speaking of this he said: "If I now
were a laboring man, as I once was,
I should not want to belong to a
ganizations expand until they em
brace the numerous branches in
one stupendous whole, to be in a
position to meet the colossal com
bines which threaten to absorb or
drive out of existence the smaller
industries, which in the .aggregate
give employment to many thousands
of persons. As capital combines so
will labor combine, and when com
bined capital feels that it can de
clare itself dictator combined labor
may dispute the dictatorship.

When the labor of the country is
in a position to assert, itself and

more willingness to listen to its com

lishment. The tendency is to give
the highest possible price for proper
service and no member of a labor
organization is in a position to avail
himself of such disposition'
Occupying the position .he does
and has for some years, it is not to
be supposed that Mr. Schwab favors
labor organizations nor is it likely
that he has ever belongeo them. He
doesn't say whether he would ad
vise against organizations generally,
but the inference from his language
is that whatever they may be in a
general way they are not a good
thing in "well managed corpora
tions like the U. S. Steel Company,"
which promotes workmen for whom
it has special use and ' who show
special talents and fitness for the
service required. All corporations
do this; although they may not pay
as large salaries as the billion dol
lar steel combine does, so that to
carry out Mr. Schwab's idea there
would be no labor organizations at
all. ' . ,
There may be difference of- opin
ion about labor organizations which
have been setting them the example
by combining among themselves do
not approve of them. Some work
men may not, for they have an
idea, asMr. Schwab has, that it in
terferes with individual freedom of
action. That kind of men will not
join them. And yet if there were
no labor organizations what chance
would labor stand when it . had to
deal with organizations like the
Steel Trust? It employs thousands'
of men, it picks out its captains and
lieutenants from the ranks when
they show exceptional ability for
posts for which such ability is
needed, ,but how many are these in
proportion to the number of men
they employ? Reduced to its sub-

under separate cover, the blank pen
sion applications prepared under the
law of 1901. You will observe that
the pensioners now on the list will
have to appear either in person or, if
unable to do so, by certificate of phy-
oician, neiore your roara ror exami
nation and approval, together with
all new applicants for pensions. This
was considered very "essential to a
proper grading; of pensioners, as well
as to enable the Board to drop from
the list the names of those who do not
nw meet the requirements of the
law. I urge upon your Board the
necessity of a careful scrutiny of each
case, to the end that no unworthy man
be placed on the roll.
This Department has decided, under
the ad rice of the Attorney General,
that all widows of Confederate soldiers
now on the pension roll who were
married to said soldiers after: the 1st
of April, 1865, will have to be dropped
from the roll.
I hope you will erive full nntin
through your county papers, and in
every other way possible, to all Con
federate pensioners, and all applicants
for pensions, to appear before jour
County Board of Pensions at the earl
iest practicable moment, as th limit
for the applicants is the first Monday
iu July, in order that vour list mav
be completed in time to be forwarded
to this office by the middle of August.
I regret exceedingly not bein ahla
to get the blank applications to you
earJier; but they have been in the
nanus or the public printer for quite a
while, and we are forwarding them to
you at the earliest possible moment.

But Received Very Severe Injuries
A Locomotive and Several Cars
Were Badly Demolished.
shortly after midnight yesterday
morning a rear end collision of two
A. C. L. freight trains occurred at
Teachey's, about midway between
Rose Hill and Warsaw on the W. &
W. railroad. Asa result of the col
lisioD, Engineer Jno. A.Pemberton, of
Fayetteville, was seriously, though it
is thought, not fatally wounded, a
locomotive caboose and one or more
Fruit Growers' Express cars are par
tially demolished. . Engineer Pember
ton's injuries consist of a very severe
scalp wound affecting almost the en
tiro top of his head and bruises about
the breast, which may later prove internal.
lhe first train was in charge of
Capt. DeLeon Fillyaw and was stand
ing just below the switch opening on
the main line track at Teachey's.
The second train was in charge of
Capt Tbos. Pae and Engineer Pem
berton and dashed into the rear of the
first train with much violence, j ust
as his engine was upon the rear car of
the;first train, Capt. Pember ton saw the
inevitable result and jumped from his
cab, striking his head on the end of a
cross tie and his breast coming in
sharp contact with the ground. The
fireman rushed back into the tender
and was uninjured.
The locomotive was badly demol
ished, several of the cars were broken
into flinders and afterwards took fire.
A wrecking train was immediately
dispatched from Wilmington and the
track was soon cleared. As the wreck
occurred on the main line, just be
tween the ends of the switch at the
station, traffic was in no way delayed
and trains passed through as usual.
The railroad authorities are making
an investigation or the cause of the
collision, but the responsibility has
not been fixed.
Capt. Pemberton is still at Teachey's
and is resting comfortably. His friends
here hope for his early recovery. The
physicians thought best not to remove
him from Teachey's until he has
omewhat recovered from the shock
Mrs. Pemberton and son, Mr. Emmett
Pemberton, of Fayetteville, arrived at
Teachey's yesterday afternoon to be
with him. .
Mr. J. J. Croswell, the well known

agent, was on one of the freight (rains,
but escaped without injury.

Strawberry Express Shipments
Yesterday there went forward by
express from points along the W. &
W. railroad 2.300 crates of strawber
ries and from points along the A. &
Y. railroad about 600 crates On the
day before the W. & W. shipments
amounted to 2,100 crates and the A.
& Y. shipments to about 430 crates. Of
course the quantity by Fruit Growers'
Express was very much in excess of
the numbers above. Prices are now
said to be on the decline by reason of
heavy shipments going forward from
the Norfolk belt simultaneously with
those from Wilmington and vicinity.
At a called meeting of the Board of
Aldermen held last night, the city of
Wilmington appropriated $500 for the
relief of tbe suffering people of Jack
sonville, Fla., the same to be transmit
ted at once by Mayor Waddeli through
the proper channels.
All members were present when the
meeting was called to order and Mayor
Waddeli stated that the chief purpose
of the session was to make a contribu
tion for the alleviation of suffering in
the stricken city of Jacksonville, and
that he had seen members of the
Board of Audit and Finance and had
been assured that any reasonable ap
propriation would be cheerfully con
curred in! He, therefore, asked that
a motion be made carrying with iC an
appropriation for the purposes set
forth, and this was done by Alderman
Bailey, who named the amount as
$500, and after second by Alderman
West, it was unanimously adopted.
The Mayor called the attention of
the Board to the need of a clerk of the
police court, who is qualified as a
magistrate, so that in bis absence war
rants can be regularly issued, etc.
Alderman VoGlahn moved that
Sergeant Ward, who is in the day ser
vice in the hall, be required to attend
to those duties. The motion was
seconded by Alderman West.
Alderman Mann placed in nomina
tion Mr. F. T. Skipper, formerly lieu
tenant of police, and Alderman West
placed in nomination Mr. B. W. Dun
ham. There was much discussion as to
where the appropriation for the pav
of an extra officer would come from
and as to whether or not one of the ser
geants would ba dismissed. Several ex-

ABOUT BONDS AND JURORS.
Editor Wilmington Star :
I have two subjects that I wish to
Irnannnf' Pi'8t. ha we vote for the
$50,000 county bonds to make .rood
roads for the county f My opinion as
a tax payer is, if the work is well done
so as to be as near permanent as any
thing can possibly be made, and eco
nomically done, then it is a good thing
to vote for the bonds. Now, have we
a good Board of Commissioners that
we can depend on to do work well,
judiciously, and economically ? I
think we have.
Now, the next subject is, I notice the
County Commissioners have to revise
the jury list. I think that every well
qualified man who has been exempt
for being a firemau or for some other
cause, should call on the County Com
missioners and ask that their names
should be put back in the box, and
most especially all business men should
do that, because in eommAwdi ....

WASHiNGTONMay 15 The naval
board appointed to devise a scheme of
practical usefulness for the torpedo

to-day left for Pensacola, Eia., where
they will consider theestablishmerit
of a series of torpedo headquarters
along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts.
Although the plan is still in embryo
it is now practically decided to begin
with the establishment of three main
divisions one along the North At

London, Conn.; another at a conve
nient point on the South Atlnniin
probably at Port Royal, S. C, and a
third on the Gulf of Mexico, probably

iT-ncu mese cniei points are
located the purpose is to gradually
add other stations contiguous to the
main points until there is a line of
torpedo boat stations extending along
the Atlantic and Gulf coast. In time
u- Pace these points would serve
chiefly as yards and depots where the
small craft could be drawn out of the
water a part of the time, and in time
of war they would be a part .of the
strategic defence of the country, giv
ing the entire coast protection against
attack from unexpected quarters.
