"I have no idea," he said, "of the grounds
given for the decision. I have felt all

Borne of the Industrial conditions that
threaten to become unusually oppressive
to girls was the subject of an address by
Mrs. Florence Kelley of the Consumers'
league before the council of presidents
at the Atlantic City meeting recently and
she offered the following resolutions, which
were adopted by the council:
Whereas. The development of machinery
during the past five years has enabled girls
employed In the needle trades and the tex
tile trades to double the amount of their
Whereas, This Increasing speed Involves
corresponding Increase of strain upon the
eyes and the nerves of these young work
ers, and . .
Whereas, The young workers under the
age of 18 are Increasing more rapidly than
any other part of the working class, and
their health and welfare constitutes an
ever-Increasing element of the health and
welfare of the nation, and
Whereas, Two states. Ohio and Colorado,
have shown by successful effort that pro
tection for these young workers can be
afforded (Ohio by prohibiting for them all
work after 7 p. m. and Colorado by rc
restrlcting their hours of work to eight
In one day and forty-eight In one week).
Therefore, Resolved that the council of
the General Federation of Women's Clubs
recommend to the state federations and
the clubs that they strive In their re
spective states for the legal protection of
these young workers under IK years of age.
First. By statutory promoiuon oi wum

Second. By restricting their employment

Mrs. Kelley's resolutions have already
been adopted by the Consumers' leaguo and
will be presented to the coming convention
of the American Suffrage association at
Purtland, and to the National Council of
Women and Congress of Mothers and other
women's organizations for adoption.
Tho coming year's work for the Industrial
committees In the clubs was outlined by
the chairman of the General Federation of
Woman's Clubs Industrial committee, as
While every encouragement should be
given special means of relief, such as was
provided in Mrs. Kelley's resolution, the
clubs are requested to study the wholo In
dustrial situation of women, not from the
outside, as they have been doing, but from
the Inside, with working women as their
teachers. Every Btate and district federa
tion meetlnir should have an Industrial pro
gram, and some of the speakers on the pro
grams should be chosen from the ranks of
the workers. Research work should be un
dertaken In every community. The especial
research work recommended Is along tho
lines laid down by the Intermunlclpal com
mittee on household research. The object
of this committee Is to Investigate existing
conditions of household work, to secure fair
conditions for both employer and employed,
and place domestic service on a business
basis. The ultimate object of the clubs
should be to secure In each state a model
employment office law. such as the New
York Association for Household Research
was able to secure for this state. The clubs
were also asked to co-operate In the effort
to obtain an Investigation by the United
States Department of Labor Into Industrial
conditions of women and children. The

where such a committee, exists write a let

There is not the least doubt In the world
that the petition would be granted.

their neglect of duty. He said:

could be no shirking of duty and miscon

kept a strict surveillance over the men.
Continuing, Director Potter said that he
had received information that policemen

Switch Open and Locked.
Conductor Alexander Hammond of the
Limited told his experience:
"1 rushed back to tiie switch immediately
after the wreck. It was open and locked
open. 1 tried It and found that It worked
all right. The switch light was out. Not a
wheel had rolled over the switch since No.

went through forty-five minutes before."

The following official report of the wreck
was telegraphed today by Vice President
W. C. Brown of the New York Central
lines to President W. H. Newman at New
Train No. 10, eastbound, passed Mentor
at 8.35 p in., at which time the switches
were all set for the main line. No. Jo fol
lowed No. 10 fifty minutes behind it and no
trains passed Mentor in either direction be
tween the time No. 10 passed there and the
arrival of No. 26.
The operator was on the platform, with
two men named James Collins and W. M.
Ieuders, both of whom live In Mentor,
when No. 10 passed, after which the opera
tor went Into the office and remained until
about the time No. 26 was due, when he
ngaln went out on the platform and saw
No. 2i coming two or three miles away.
The operator says that be looked at the
awltrhllghts and they were white and the
switches were properly set for the main
track. He then returned to the office.
If this Is correct, between that time and
the time No. 26 headed In on the sidetrack
someone threw the switch for the sidetrack
and locked It In that position.

Mall Was Valuable.
CHICAGO, Juno 22. A highly Important
class of mall was carried by tho wrecked
Twentieth Century Limited. Numerous In
quiries were received at the postofftce hero
today to discover whether any of the mall
had been saved. The train carried nothing
but first-class matter usuuljy of an urgent
character and tho postofflee department
made special provision dally to catch tho
train In order to reach the larger cities east
of here In the quickest posslhi time. Im
portant letters and documents could be
mailed up to within fifteen minutes of train
time, when the last pouch was shot through
a pneumatic tube Into the Lake Shore sta
tion at La Salle and Van Uuren streets nnd
then loaded Into the baggage and mall end
of the buffet car. It was this car which
seems to have suffered destruction not only
direct but by flames. Anxiety was mani
fested In many inquiries which came over
the telephone to the postofflee today from
people who hnd entrusted Important mat
ter to the "flyer." Tho train usually car
ries from fifteen to twenty pouches of this
class of matter.

not believe last night's accident was due to
the speed of the train, but It was his Judg
ment that the twenty-hour schedule should
be restored at once.

Local railroad men discredit the Idea thnt
the wreck of the Twentieth Century Lim
ited will have any disparaging effect upon
the fast-time trains, the eighteen-hour run
from Chicago to New York, pointing out
that the wreck was In no way due to the
fast time of the train, but the direful neg
ligence or criminal action of someone other
than any of the trainmen. It Is pointed out
that the switch was locked open and that
this Is not an ordinary accident. There aro

Decide to Go to Court to Heslat
sessment Levied by County
Judge Ben S. Baker appeared before the
County Board of Equalization and per
fected the necessary steps to take an Imme
diate appeal to the district court from the
action of the board in levying an assess
ment on the commercial colleges of Omaha.
The claim will be urged to the court that
they are exempt under the constitution and
laws of the state.
Attorney Baldrlge appeared before tho
board to protest against the assessment of
the Sutherland Roofing company and tho
Sutherland Bros company. The return of
the latter was for 131,125 and this was
raised by Assessor Reed to $50,000. In the
rase of tho first mentioned company the
return of 110.600 was raised by Mr. Reed to
$.10,000. Mr. Baldrlge said the city assess
ment Is $15,000 on the roofing branch and
$15,0(0 on the other. He. also expressed the
view that manufacturing concerns which
employ many men and distribute money to
mechanics should be given more lenient
treatment by tho board than real estate.
The protest did not strike board members
as being well taken, but nc action was
