Hockefeller'i Latest Plan.
Moro than ordinary Interest attaches to the
plan announced by John D. Rockefeller, Jr., for
tha amelioration of labor conditions In the coal
camps of Colorado. This plan partakes of the
nature of a joint agreement between the
Colorado Fuel and Iron company and tha men
employed In and about ita workings. In this re
gard giving full recognition to the doctrine of
collective bargaining. In tbe arrangement for
tarrying out Ita provisions In detail, it compre
hends tha chlefest function of a trades union,
bnt without the stability of a continuing and
But it la not thla evasion of tbe trades union
that will receive most consideration or most
study of Mr. Rockefeller's plan. He has gone
far beyond the contract for "hours, wages and
conditions," usually comprehended (y a wage
agreement, and has made elaborate arrange
ments for the care and oversight of the rom
pany'a employes In their private and communal
life. His philanthropic solicitude is manifest In
a desire to improve scientifically the life of the
men on his payroll, regardless of their earning
capacity. I'nder tbe following provision of the
Joint agreement now awaiting ratification:
The president's executive annlston; shall alao ex
ert' In- a general -urxr lnl n over the anltury, im-d Cit
edurat onsl, rol' ,lnu, aocl I ,and other llko need of
the different induatrlal cmmunltte, with a vie of
seeing that such needs are aultaliy are adeq atel
provide .1 to , and the aeveral activities pertaining
thereto hsrmonloiialy conducted.
As the company la to bear all the expense of
carrying out the agreement In any of Ha several
phases, the part of tha employee being merely
to voice general complaints or desires, the pos
sibility for the establishment of better conditions
under this plan Is Its most prominent feature.
Tor this reason its operation will be awaited and
observed by all aa an exceptional experiment In
Speeding' Up for Good Koadi.
Those most vitally Interested la good roads
leading In and out of Omaha and every one la
Interested in greater or less degree are in
augurating a new movement for road improve
ment which wa will be glad to belp along. Tba
only questions Involved that may be subject to
debate are, On bow large a scale shall the pro
gram of road Improvement be laid out? And by
what methods and machinery shall tha work be
It muat ba remembered that we have had
good roada propaganda before, and that Douglas
county onca voted $1BO,000 in bonda to pay for
permanent roadwaya wltb tha unfortunate ex
perience that tba taxpayers are doubtful
whether they got their money's worth. Wa bave
also been spending year after year cloae to $200,
000 annually on tba construction and mainte
nance ol roada and bridges in this county, and
wa ought to bave aomething to show for It mora
than we have. It must be remembered too that
It la foolish, as well aa useless, to build perma
nent roadways unless wa are ready to maintain
them constantly in good condition.
Properly laid out and kept up, a system of
permanent roada radiating from Omaha can
taslly ba a profitable investment. The move
ment, however, to make headway, will have to
proceed along distinctly practical lines.
Tba War ia Fiction.
It would seem that wltb tha rising tide of
war fiction we have entered the second stage of
tha influence of tbe war on literature.
Tha flrat eruption of European war booka
resembled tbe outpouring of heavy artillery it
aurfeited ua with ponderoua and serious discus
sions of tba causes of tba war, wltb dissertations
on tha art of war-making, inquiries Into tba
ethics and psychology of war, and personal nar
ratives of the experiences of marooned Amer
ican tourists or of special correspondents hover
ing around the edges of tha war sona. But now
wa bava tba beginning of a different type of
war literature fiction with a war background
of ruin and carnage and stories built about tha
military hero. Tbe war fiction, having first
found its way into tba magazines, ia becoming
pretentioua enough now to take on book form.
The theme, to be sure, Is still too serious to per
mit of light treatment, and tha humor must ba
carefully guarded. But tba tbreada of love and
danger, of courage and patboa are as readily
woven on tha framework of tba present Euro
pean conflict aa heretofore around our cam
paigns In the Philippines, and before that
around our civil war episodes.
Tha writer of fiction never had material of
more absorbing human Intereat to work on than
is presented by tbe great war, and it will ba
surprising If several great mastarplacea for all
the ages are not soon molded from the outpour
ing of the battles' fiery melting pot.
Film Truit Decision.
In upholding tbe Sherman anti-trust law in
tbe case against tha so-called film trust, tha
federal court at Philadelphia restated tbe princi
ple on which the law turns. Monopoly in any
thing of public use, not under public control,
leada to abuses that cannot be tolerated. Tha
court goea a little further in tbia case, holding
that tha possession of patents covering the arti
cle In use is not sufficient cause for erecting and
maintaining an oppressive operative agency. ,
What the final effect of this decision will be
on tba moving picture Industry cannot now be
even conjectured. Tbe case will go to the su
preme court of the United States tor review, and
in tha intervening time the ownera of the aeveral
organisations Invohed will have opportunity to
reconstruct tbelr operating plans. The Indus
try la of peculiar Interest, for it touches the
public much closer than any of tha other great
industrial or commercial organisations brought
to book by tbe trust law. Its wonderful growth
within a very abort time ia a proof of tba popu
larity of Ita product.
Monopolistic control baa worked hardship
on exhibitors, not so much through the regula
tion of exhibits aa the establishment of onerous
conditions under which tha little fellow might
carry on hie business. These are tbe onea who are
most vitally concerned in the ultimata settle
ment. Tbe public will sUll have its "movies,"
and tba big operators will continue to reap their
proflta, but tba owner of a "neighborhood
theater" may yet escape sous portion of the
tribute hitherto exacted by the trust, and bo per
mitted to retain a larger number of tha nickels
that coma Into bis coffer.

Solomon Orundy and Benlamin Blue
Meet every day at the shop;
Bmile on each other; say, "How do
Are the best of good fellows. Pure pop!
A bond of communion that fate loves to
TTnite them and comfort It send.
Two old particular! Two old parties'
Two old particular friends!
Solomon Grundy a democrat Is;
Ben a republican true.
Sol is for temperance: strictly for bis;
Ben loves a bottle or two.
Sol Is a pessimist. Ben loves to fix
With a laugh all o' life's ragged ends.
Two old particular! Two old parties!
Two old particular friends!
What Is the bond's that's uniting two men
So wholly dissimilar? Hope!
Both are rheumatic; swap symptoms; and
Talk of remedies; revel In done!
Whatever Fate deals they'll be there with
Conversation that confidence lends.
Two old particular! Two old parties!
Two old particular friends!
