Manager Griffith Takes Danville Boy in Hand and Teaches Him to Bat —Shows Great Improvement in His Stick Work. The improvement of Ray Morgan as a batter is one ot the greatest things connected with the performances of the Nationals of 1912. Last year the little lad from Dan ville. Va.. was a light sticker. Jim my McAleer despaired bis ever shin ing in the big league on that ac count. Rut Jimmy didn't know- how to teach the boy better form at the bat. It remained for Clark Griffith to do that. At Charlottesville Morgan was given long and careful instruction on ! hov to stand, how- to swing, how- to get away from the plate and the kind of a bat he should use. It was all new to the lad. Never before had an;- one tried to teach him. He had always hit in his own natural style, good enough in its way. too. but not good enough for the big show. \\ hen the season started Morgan was only learning how- to use all his weight against the ball, how to pick out the good ones and how to get av.a> from the plate. He was learn ing rapidly, however, and when the opportunity came for him to take his I isce in the regular line-up day after day, he was ready. Morgan should be one of the team's ieauing nitters if he continues his present work with the willow Thor oughly impregnated with the doctrine being taught the team by Griffith, he believes he can hit any pitching served up tr> him. Furthermore, he is doing it and has been doing it all along. The Baltimore boy is using the proper size of stick now He swings with all his strength and weight and Is one of the longest hitters on the I Ray Morgan. team His great speed enables him to get the most out of his long drives to the garden, and as a sliding run net only Moeller and Milan begin to compare with him. "Morgan is a natural hitter, that's all," smiles Griffith, when talking ol his young second baseman. "He is using all his ability now and should he a success all along As soon as he learns the fine points about playing the bag. he will be one of the best second basemen in the game, mark me. one of the best in the game." TO RETAIN MANAGER DAHLEN _ President Ebbets of Brooklyn Sets at Rest Rumors Concerning Leader of His Team. To set at rest various rumors in volving the management of The Brook lyns next year President Ebbets made this positive statement: Dahlen will not be supplanted. He has done excellent work with the ma terial in hand In three years he has Bill Dahlen. j ripped out the deadwood. the drinkers and the trouble makers and has built up an entirely new organization. He knows e\ery angle of the game and the Brooklyns are bound to improve. "It would be an injustice to remove Dahlen from the management just at | a time when it seems certain that he I w ill get good results. Dahlen is not to blame for the accidents and illness tnat have crippled us from time to time. He has been patient and pains taking and I intend to place increased [ confidence in his ability ” Senators Are Harmonious. The Senators, like the Red Sox. are i a harmonious bunch. They are pull ing together in great shape, and ex I perts ascribe their success to this con : dition of affairs. No evidence of Jeal ousy has cropped out yet. Butler la Hard Hitter. Art Butler, whom the Boston Na tionals turned over to St. Paul las' season for Harry Steinfeldt. is one ot the leading hitters in the American association. He also is playing a bril liant fielding game. 1 lVabqr I KAY Ode To Tabor F.y H ILEI R D.

A comprehensive investigation of the relations of capital and labor will be undertaken by the federal govern ment. The investigation is to be con ducted by a commission of nine per sons to be appointed by the president and with the advice and consent of the senate. The commision is specifically or dered to Investigate: The general condition of labor in the principal industries. Including ag riculture. and especially in those car ried on in corporate forms. The existing relations between em ployers and employees. The effect of the industrial condi tions on public welfare and the rights and powers of the community to deal therewith. The conditions of sanitation and safety of employees and the provisions for protecting their lives, limbs and health. The growth oQ associations of em ployers and wage earners and the ef fect of such associations upon the re lations between employers and em ployees. The methods tried in any state or foreign countries for maintaining mu tually satisfactory relations between employers and employees. The methods for avoiding or adjust ing labor disputes through peacefll and conciliatory mediation and negoti ations. The qfiuestion of smuggling or other Illegal entry of Asiatics into the Unit ed States or Its insular possessions The underlying causes of dissatis faction in the Industrial situation. Queues and Hair Supply. Consul General Anderson, stationed at Hongkong, has recently taken pains to correct the widespread impression that the growing tendency on the part of Chinamen to dispense with their queues will have the effect ot making false hair cheap. It appears that the queues when cut are never sold, but are always preserved for burial with the owner. Mr. Anderson says that this is an absolute rule throughout South China, as well as in all other parts of the country from which he has been able to secure information o" the subject. LAWS NEED REVISION I-abor day! Its celebration, its pa rades and Its meetings are important •-1 events in the in dustrial develop ment of our coun try and the pro gressive move ments of her peo ple. It is the spe cial occasion when wage-earners re view the history j and struggles of the past. that. ' like milestones, j mark the on ward march to ! higher conditions of life and labor. Particularly is it appropriate that in New England with all her hallowed meroqries and traditions, the movement for industrial up lift should find expression among the descendants of the men whose sacrifices and achievements contributed so much to the establish ment of political independence and religious freedom on this continent. While the problem of labor is one af fecting all sections of our country and all the countries of the world, yet we • may look to the east, to the men ol New England, for a voice that, like that of the immortal Revere, shall I warn us of our danger and point the way to safety. There are at this time many aspects of the labor question that deserve and demand immediate consideration; not the least of these being the revision ol our laws so as to make them compati ble with the changes in our social and industrial life that have followed the momentous development of machinery and methods of production. Wage earners must take the initia tive in any movement calculated tc promote their own interests or to pro tect them against the evils which have grown out of the combination and con solidation of capital; they must be both courageous and patient, aggres sive yet prudent; they must build their organizations on sound founda tions and conduct them on business lines, and it is highly important to the security of the t^age-earners and the safety of society that women workers shall be organized, and thus protectee against the demoralizing influences that have always attended overwork excessive hours and under-nutrition. The exhortation of Wendell Philips cannot be too strongly emphasized: • Organize and stand together! Let the nation hear a united demand from th« laboring .voice." Protecting Children. Forty-four states have adopted an age limit for the employment of chil dren. The limit in some states is still pitifully low, but the organizations of labor that have wrested an age limit from unwilling legislatures will soon force the limit higher. Forty-two states have set maximum hours for a working week for children. Thirteen states have boiler inspec tion laws. Thirty-seven states order seats pro vided for female employes. Seventeen states make provision for protection of employes engaged on construction of buildings. Fourteen states officially inspect bakery shops. Forty-eight 6tates and the District of Columbia have laws conserving wages, making it possible to secure wages due, by "mechanics' liens,” thus making wages preferred claims. These liens In some instances are attached to the property itself, in others to chatties or to designated funds. Thirty-five states nave established bureaus of labor statistics, A Colossal Scheme. The great highway of the commerce of the future will be the Pacific ocean. Mighty capitalists throughout the world are putting their heads together to erect the most colossal system for wireless telegraphy In the world. The system contemplates the linking to gether of all points along the western coast of America from Bering sea to the Straits of Magellan, and spanning the isles of the ocean, to link with this chain the whole easterly shore of Asia, running on down to the Straits Settlements. The contemplated sys tem will cost in the aggregate millions of dollars. BLUEJAY LIVES IN WOODS’ Hawks, Owls and Other Birds Are Teased and Tormented by These Noisy Birds. The bluejay likes best to live in thick woods, but it often comes into , open fields, orchards and near dwell ings in search of food. When it dis covers you it assumes a proud and angry air of conceit and defiance. The bluejay's upper parts are pur plish-blue. The lower parts are pur plish-gray. The wings and tail are bright blue with black bars. The tail feathers are tipped with white. It has a crested head The bluejay builds its nest about twenty feet above ground. It is made of twigs and fine roots. From four to six eggs are laid. They are of a greenish drab color flecked with brown. Doubtless the bluejay helped to name itself, as its common utterance is a long drawn, "jay, jay. jay.” This cry, with the bright blue color, bas given it its name. While the jay sings no song it is able to imitate the calls of other birds, by which means it often at tracts them. It likes to tease and torment the owl and especially the lit tle sparrow hawk. This is done by imitating the cry of a wounded bird, which draws the hawk near. Then several jays will dart at the hawk squealing and frolicking about in great glee. Sometimes the play ends in a tragedy, for the hawk pounces upon one of them, to the dismay of the others. lays may be caged and tamed like crows and some writers say they can be taught to utter words. —“Bird Studies.'’ by Herman C. De Groat. Everybody in Hard Luck. Suddenly he stepped up to a gentle man. who was waiting for the tram, and. tapping him lightly on the shoul der. said: "Excuse me. but did you drop a five-pound note?” at the same time holding out in his band the ar ticle. The gentleman questioned gazed a moment at the note, assumed an anx ious look, made a hasty search of his pockets, and said: "Why. so I did. and 1 hadn’t missed it,” holding out an eager hand. The elderly hunter took the name and address of the loser and. putting tie note in his pocket, turned away. "Well." said the other, "do you want It all as a reward?” , "Oh. I did not find one,” remarked the benevolent one with another beam; “but it struck me that in a big place like London there must be a quantity of money lost, and upon in quiry I found that you are the one hundred and thirty-first man who lost a five-pound note this mornihg.”—Lon don Answers. A Word to the Wise. The proverbial advice. “Cobbler, stick to your last." had an opposite exemplification in the following anec dote. for which Zion's Advocate is re sponsible: A colored man was brought before a police judge, charged with stealing chickens. He pleaded guilty, and re ceived sentence, when the judge ask ed how it was he managed to lift those chickens right under the window of their owner's house when there was a dog in the yard. “Hit wouldn’t be of no use. judge.” said the culprit, “to try to 'spiain dis thing to you all. Ef you was to try it. like as not you would git yer hide full o’ shot, an’ git no chickens, nei ther. Ef you want to engage in any rascality. judge, yo’ bettah stick to de bench, whar yo' am familiar.” Barber Shops in China. Since the Chinese revolution a great many Chinese have had their queues cut off, and this had led to the opening of a large number of barber shops throughout the far east wher ever Chinese are located, says an ex change. Several progressive business men of Singapore, anticipating this, imported a large number of Amer ican barber chairs, and they are now unable to get supplies quickly enough. It has also been learned that the Chinese Insist on having American hair clippers, and refuse all other makes offered them. It would seem that American manu facturers of barbers’ supplies should experience a large increase in their Oriental trade.
