Three Fundamentals In the Process
of Tnralm Out Ripe
Within the reach of our hands as we sit
here In this editorial den, which Is shut
away from the affairs of either workshop
or business office, all by our lonesome,
there are several well known articles we
need in our business. One of them is a
simple old cob pipe and an old terbaccer
box filled with a very mild and harmless
old terbaccer; one is a much tumbled, com
plete edition of Bill Shakespeare's works;
another is a student's Bible in fair state
of preservation. Whenever we have a par
ticularly hard nut to crack in taking care
of a bit of news or whenever In the still
ness here we get to cogitating on the mani
fold peculiar, divers and strange things in
human nature as It Is mirrored daily be
fore us In the goings, comings and doings
of people, then we reach for faithful Old
Cob, load her up and calmly fill the clr
cumanbient atmosphere with filmy dreams.
Whenever we want an apt quotation In
which not one word of the king's good
English is wasted, and which goes light to
the heart of a bit of philosophy, we open
up Shapespeare and cull a phrase. The
philosophy of Shapespeare's is of the es
sence of things everlasting, and therefore
never grows old. Whenever we want to
read a particularly fine lot of literature
or take another look at the eternal things
which the creeds and dogmas and foolish
little Imaginations or superstitions of man
do not change the foundation of the sim
ple religion we wuerently open the Book

There have never been more striking
combinations of color than are to be seen
this year In the university ties, as they
are called. They are not cheap, although
they cost less as a rule than the knit silk,
and they are never very successfully Imi

Soma of these ties have this year as
many as six colors entering Into their
patterns and In spite of the brilliancy
that such combinations produce there Is
nothing loud about them. One of these
scarfs was composed of stripes of ma

SPLIT IN CEMENT COMBINE
Eastern Dealers Fall Oat Over Di
vision of Trade nn
According to reports received in Wash
ington, D. C, by prominent cement men
and capitalists, the so-called cement com
bine, representing total capital of more
than $160,000,000 and composed of the lead
ing cement companies of the country, has
The combination, which is headed by
the Atlas Portland Cement company, with
offices at 30 Broad street. New York City,
and the Lehigh Portland Cement company
of Allentown. Pa., was organised on De
cember 27, IMS. Among companies Included
were the Alpha Portland Cement company,
the Universal Portland Cement company,
the Portland Cement company, the Whiter
hall Portland Cement company, the Edi
son Portland Cement company and the
Pennsylvania Cement company. Other and
smaller companies also were taken In.
Probably the most Interested person in
the aggregation is J. Rodgers Maxwell,
president of the Atlas company, "and fre
quently spoken of as the "cement king."
Others prominent In the affairs of the
corporation are A. DeNavarro, vice pres
ident of Atlas; Harry C. Trexler, president
of the Lehigh company and W. M. Me
Kelvy, president of the Alpha, with of
fices in Pittsburg.
The moving spirit in the combination
and who organised the various companies
under one head la B. E. Jackson, pro
moter. 43 William street. New York City.
Mr. Jackson gained prominence not long
ago by bringing together the warring steel
wire manufacturers of the country.
According to the report received here,
the disruption of the combination Is due
to a fight said to be on between the powers
controlling the Lehigh and Atlas companies
over the division of business and profits.
A man high In the affairs of a leading
local cement concern, who declined to al
low his name to be published, declared
last night that the rupture of the combi
nation was due to the desire of the Atlas
company to restrict the output of cement,
the combination was In absolute control
of the cement Industry, and was able by
reason of such control to regulate prices
to suit Itself. At the same time this gen
tleman declared the combination is able
to laugh at court proceedings, for the rea
son that it sells a patented article, and
the supreme court has decided that holders
of patents have the right to fix the price
at which their products shall be sold.
The breakup of the combine means much
to the building Interests, which for months
have been at Its mercy. One of the biggest
deals made by the combine was the sale of
4,580.000 barrels of cement to the govern
ment. The fact that this sale was made
was confirmed yesterday at the office of
the Isthmian canal commission. At the
purchasing agent's office it was learned
that the Atlas company haa the contract,
having quoted $119 in barrels and $1.60 in
sacks, with a rebate for the return of the
sacks. Under this contract, the contract
ing company does not have to deliver the
goods on the Isthmus, but only in Jersey
City. It is then up to the government to
ship it to the canal (one.
This bid was opened on June 1 last year,
and the contract awarded Just prior to the
election of Mr. Taft to the presidency.
While the bidding was on several English
companies, said to turn out a superior
product, attempted to obtain the contract,,
but found that they were prevented by the
Dlngley tariff of 8 cents on each 100 pounds
of cement in sacks and 7 cents in bulk.
Investigation made among cement men
showed that the same cement was sold the
government in lots of more than 4,000,000
barrels, can be purchased in small lots at
the same price. One dealer. It Is declared,
offered to sell the same cement in any
quantity for tl in barrels.
Prior to the establishing of the combine
the cement business of this country was

association, the Cement Users' association
and the North American Cement company

sioner J. B. Wright is president of this
company. Washington Post.
federal soldiers wore similar badges. Gen
eral Johnston and General Beauregard met
at Fairfax Courthouse In the latter part
of August or early In September and de
termined to have a battle flag for every
regiment or detached command.
"General Johnston's flag was in the
shape of an ellipse a red flag with blue
St. Andrew's cross and stars on the cross
(white) to represent the different southern
states. (No white border of any kind was
attached to the cross). General Beaure
gard's was a rectangular, red, with blue
Bt. Andrew's cross and white stars, sim
ilar to General Johnston's.
After we had dlscused fully the two
styles, taking Into consideration the cost
of material and the care of making the
same, it was decided the elliptical flag
would be harder to make; that it would
take more cloth and it could not be seen
plainly at a distance; that the rectangular
flug, drawn by and suggested by Genera!
Beauregard, should be adopted. General
Johnston yielded at once. '
"No one- was present but us three. No
one knew about this flag but us three until
an order was Issued adopting the Beaure
gard flag, as it was called, and directing
me, as chief quartermaster, to have the
flag made as soon as it could be done. I
immediately issued an address to the good
ladies of the south to give me their red
and blue silk dresses and' to send thorn to

assisted by two elegant young ladles, the
Misses CaVey from Baltimore, and Mm.
Hennlngsen of Savannah and Mrs. Hop
kins of Alabama.
The Misses Carey made battleflags for
General Beauregard and General Van
Dorn, and, I think, for General J. K.
Johnson. They made General Beauregard's
out of their own silk dresses. This flag la
now in Memorial hall, New Orleans, with
a statement of that fact from General
Beauregard. General Van Dorn's flag was
made of heavier material, but very pretty.
"The statement going around that this
flag was first designed by federal prison
ers is false.

FAMOUS CONFEDERATE FLAGS
A Texas Commander Tells How They
Were Designed and What Be
came of Them.
The preparatldna now being made
throughout the south for the reunion of
veterans makes of unusual Interest at the
present time a statement made a number
of years ago by General W. U Cabell of
Dallas, In regard to how and where the
battle flags of the confederacy were de
signed. General Cabell Is commander of the
Transmissutsippl department of the United
Confederate Veterans. He declares the fol
lowing to be a true history of the flag:
"When the confederate army, com
manded by General Beauregard, and the
federal armv confronted each other at
Manassas, It was seen that the confederate j
flag and the Stars and btrlpes looked at a .
distance so much alike that It was hard to
distinguish one from another. General ,
Beauregard, after the battle of July IS, !
at Blackburn Ford, ordered that a small I
red badge should be worn on the left shoul
der by our troops and as I was chief quar
termaster, ordered me to purchase a large
quantity of red flannel and to distribute
It to each regiment.
