L. Stark of the Fourth Nebraska district,
one of the five members of the house still
outside tne Dreasiworxa oi me iwu ir

election day makes for republican success.
"The farmers in my district." he said,
"were so busy getting In the magutflcent
crops which have blessed their labors this
year, that about 4,600 of them tailed to go
to the polls, and their absence caused my

cleaned out the pockets of tobacco, matches

What he doea with his plunder is a

Jim Is also an Inebriate at heart, though
he seldom has a chance to Indulge his
fancy. That fact came out a few weeks
ago, when one of the hands stuffed his
coat pocket full of corn soaked with whisky
and left the coat in sight of the bird. Jim
ate it with relish and in a little while
became ao overcome that he flew to a tree
and went to eleep.

around near it for a week before he finally

NEW YORK, Nov. 28. Edward F. Croker,
chief of the fire department, wss today dis
missed from the service by Commissioner
Mr. Croker was found guilty on the
charge of "failure to enforce the require
ments of law for properly aafeguardlng the
Park Avenue hotel; of the conversion of
public property to his private use; of con
duct prejudicial to good order and discipline
In persecuting and unjustly discriminating
against certain members of the uniformed
force, and of conduct unbecoming an of
ficer and a gentlemsn and prejudicial to
good order and discipline."
On the charges of "incompetency as chief
of the department in the management of

he waa acquitted.
Mr. Croker declined to make any com'
ment on the aentence, but it is known he
will fight the matter to the end. On being

the commissioner and expressing the belief
that he had acted in accordance with the
law and with the dlctatea of hia conscience.

In his statement Mayor Low says:
The charter places upon the Are com
missioner, and not upon the mayor, the
duty of conducting, all trials in the tire
department, and it is the sworn duty of
the commissioner to make his findings upon
evidence according to his onsclence. It
Ik due to the provisions of the charter
itself that the commissioner has been ob

The circumstances In this case have been
such that 1 have thought it Incumbent upon
the mayor to assure himself that the chief
has had a fair trial, and that every op
portunity was given him to make his de

satisfied, aa I am upon these points, there
eeemed to be no reason why this trial
should not take its course like any other
trial held by the commissioners. Tha dis
cipline of the department, in fact, re
quired that this matter should be disposed
of in the usual way.
Edward F. Croker is 39 years of age and
haa been connected with the department
for eighteen years. He la the nephew of
Richard Croker. In 1898 he became deputy

H. J. Conway, an ' officer of the Retail
Clerks' International Protective associa
tion, in a letter to the Chicago Tribune de
tails the grievances of the retail clerka of
that city, due to long hours of labor and
insufficient pay. The' conditions detailed
are those prevailing in Chicago, but like
conditions exist in a lesser degree in every
city and town in the west. Mr. Conway
The retail clerk today is worse oft than
the hodcarrier who recelvea 30 centa an
hour and worka day after day in a ault
of old clothes, which he can discard when
hia work la done. The clerk, on the other
hand, must meet the public clad in good
clothing, which takes a large part of his
Income. While the hod carrier works eight
hours a day the clerk tolls twelve, fourteen
aaa sometimes alxteea hours.
The condition of the retail clerks of to
day an army of wage earners composed
of men and women, both old and young are
such that it la impossible to consider them
in all localities in this article. In the city
of Chicago there are two classes the
clerks who work in tha large department
stores in State street and the onea In the
stores on the outside.
In the State street department stores the
hours of labor have been constantly
shortened until now these stores open at
1:80 in the morning and close at 5:30 or
o'clock la the afternoon and remain cboaed
on Sunday. But the rulea in these bouses
are ao strict and enforced ao severely that
they sometimes remind one of a penal In
stitution Instead of a place of employment.
One recognises that any successful place
of business must have a system and rules
and regulations governing. Its employes,
but a great many of the little' petty rules
raa b eliminated. Above all, more wagea
can v! paid the clerks in State street than
are paid at the present Urns.
Usg Hero-a la Stares. .
In the outside stores the hours are en
tirely toe long. The stores open at 7
o'clock In the morning and remain open
until I and S:S0 In the evening except
Wednesday and Friday nights, when thsy
Lii;se at ( 6'clock. Te counterbalance these
few hours of leisure, however, the clerks
must remain Saturday night until 10:30
and 11 o'clock and then be In the store on
Sunday from 7:30 in the morning until 1
o'clock in the afternoon. Think of the
feelings of the girls and young women who
are compelled to labor all these hours
In order to help fill the family larder.
They have absolutely no time to partici
pate in the innocent pleasures of life,
cannot even find time to attend to their
Christian duties. Aa an excuse for being
compelled to work on Sunday the clerks
are told "the merchants must keep open
to accommodate the public." In many
cases the stores are patronized by the
families of the clerks employed in these
stores, thus depriving their own flesh and
blood of enjoying Sunday as a day of rest.
The clerk in the grocery store Is com
pelled to open the store at 6:30 In the
morning and work almost continuously un
til 8 o'clock at night, and aometimes even
later. In addition to this he must be there
a half day on Sunday. Why should be work
so many hours? Doea It require all this
time to transact the business done on that
day? No, It is only again the selfishness
of the public In compelling them to work
so long. As solicitors make the rounds for
all the stores orders could be given them
and filled without the loss of the additional
time by the clerk. But because they are
not the grocery stores are keeping open
from early morning until late at night,
when their business could be done the same
as in the large department stores and the
clerks given shorter hours.
Perhaps there is no greater sufferer from
long hours than the drug clerk the young
man who is compelled to graduate from a
recognised college of pharmacy and atand
and examination before he can accept a
position aa clerk in a drug store. Every
day he opens the store at 7 In the morning
and closes at 11 o'clock at night. Often he
ia compelled to sleep in the store all night
ao as to be there la case of call for a pre
scription or through fear an accident may
happen that would necessitate medical at
tention. The welfare of tne public thus
prevents him from going to hia own home
Few Chaaees te Rlae.
There is an old saying that one hears
aometimes today that "the clerk of today

I do not think so. How can a clerk work

Increase in living expenses ssve a sufficient
amount of money to enable him to go into
business? How can he meet the competi
