MANY BUHIN'D BRUMBAUGH.
Xmonfc tho men who promised to nld
Governor Brumbaugh to bring about
Sanitary homes were Bishop Suffragan

of tho JelTerson Medical College; Dr.

on tuberculosis, and others.
Bishop Garland said today:
"I feel certain that Governor Brum
baugh will do nil he can In Improving
the1 present hou;lng conditions in Philadel
phia. There should bo no delay In this
Important matter, and I trust that legis
lation relating to the housing conditions
Win be taken up at once. A good law
was passed by tho Legl3lnturo a jenr
ego which, If enforced, would have done
a geat deal of good. Unfortunately thin
law has not been enforced because two
or thrco self-constituted Judges of sani
tary problems In Councils refused to grant
tho necessary appropriation. Governor
urumbaugh has taken the right step by
tho Ctvll Service Xlefortn Association,
"The. Civil Service Reform Association
Is gratified although not surprised that
the Governor In his nddress lo the Legis
lature has declared In favor of a State
civil service act. Ills declaration Is
Identical with his original statements
made In the primary campaign. Wo
havo every confidence In the sincerity
of the Governor's Intention to secure

; WHY FRANCIS SHUNK
BROWN WAS PICKED
If for Expediency, They
Won't Criticise, But They
Want to Know if Similar
Choices Will Be Made.
Independent ttnpubllcans nnd reformers
who supported the candldaSy of Doctor
Brumbaugh were Inclined today to re
serve comment upon tho Governors ap
pointment of Francis Shunk Brown, of
this city, as Attorney General. While ad
mitting the were not enthusiastic over
tho appointment of a man generally
known as the personal and political coun
Fel of the Vares to this post, nevertheless
they said the were willing lo withhold
criticism for the present.
Tho one predominant nucstlon in tno
inlndi of the independents now Is
whether the naming of Mr. Brown which
Is acknowledged to be a purely political
appointment was a matter of expediency
to insure the support of the Organization
for the Brumbaugh leglslatle program,
or whether It Is to be taken as an Index
of tho administration which Pennsyl
vania Is to expect from the new Gov
ernor. Should the former prove lo bo true,
and developments demonstrate that Dr.
Brumbaugh chose Francis Shunk Brown
In order not to antagonize the Ilcpublican
Legistalutc nt tho very outset of hli
term of office, the approval of the Inde
pendents will be given. On the other
hand, some asked, "with his very first
appointment n political one, what could
bo expected later?"

N1CW YOItK, Jan. 19 .Scientific man
agement s a silent revolution aiding all
workmen, In the opinion of Ida M. Tar
bell, original muck lakei. She ao-j tea ti
lled today before the Federal Commission
on Industrial Ilclatlojia.
Several of the commissioners took ex
Lcptlou. Commissioner Garrctson heckled
Miss Tnibell somewhat severely, but she
held her own well in the face of a series
ot questions destined to show that the
plan, instead of making for Industiial
democracy and better relations between
employer and employed, leally created In
dividual despotism that threatened the
anninuation or tne entire iauor move
ment. Mlbs Tarbell admitted she realized that
In Hie past bonus systems had been used
to lncieaso production and reduce wages.
But alio insisted under the present sys
tem the American employer rapidly Is
taklrg the position that tho more wages
a man earns for himself the mora divi
dends he pioduces for his employer.
Miss Tarbell said she had been engaged
In literary work for many years and re
cently had been Investigating "relations
of golden rule to business."
"You say thero" Is a silent revolution
going on In business?" asked Chairman
Walsh. "Tell us just what jou mean."
COMMON MAN" "OBBAT THING."
"Business today is finding out that the
common man is tho great thing in this
world," she answered. "To give him full
Justice and opportunity Is now the Idea
of many employers of labor. The per
sonal equation nnd the individual man la
now the big subject confronting em
ploers. I believe there aro In tills coun
try today more emplojers than ever be
fore who rallzo that unless tho common
man Is properly cared for they themselves
cannot hope to make their affairs properly
Miss Tarbell explained at great length
tho investigation she has completed re
cently ns to scientific management
"Wherever the question of scientific
management has been worked out hon
estly nnd definitely," she said, "It has
benefited the worker, but there has
been a great deal of taking In this re
gard. It Is because of this faking that
labor has complained of scientific man
agement which had for its object only
speeding up. When scientific management
Is rightly In force, it makes for collec
tive action betwen capital and labor.
When you have this co-operation, the
business Interests of this country will
benefit greatly and so will the workers
"This Is a new day In American labor.
I have watched It In the iron and steel
Industry," she said, "I recall the strike
of 1870 In Pittsburgh. I knqw the htecl
workers and managers of Pennsylvania.
I know the crimes of the steel business.
When the steel corporation ws; Syrmed It
Inherited some of the worst and somo
of the best labor policies then in ex
istence. Take the Frick Company, It's
manager, Mr- Lynch, stood for 'safety
first.' He was the man who induced thn
steel corporation to develop that as one
of Its policies and today It is Increasing
this policy and Intelligently applying It,"
FJUCK POLICY TOWARD LABOR.
At this point Chairman Walsh asked
what the policy ot the Frlok company
was toward labor.
"Their mines wero run on the open
shop policy," Mis Tarbel continued, "but
they did their best or all of their
worker. The unspeakable coK villages
of the Pittsburgh district are now at least
sanitary and fit for human occupancy
and no longer mere parts of the ash pits.
"And the steel trade also has applied
the eight-hour day to from 11 to 28 per
cent- of It employe." fine aatd, "The
Commonwealth Steel Company of Granite
City. J1L, whose head has refuted to make
a fortune manufacturing shrapnel to kill

It was learned todny that the Inde
pendent supporters of Doctor Brumbaugh
prepared to lemonstrate when they first
learned that Mr. Brown would bo the choir?'
piobable appolnteo. A conference of the
Independent lenders was held and the ob
vious favoring of so "strong" nn Organi
zation man was bitterly condemned. A
man close to Doctor Brumbaugh was
called upon to explain the Governor
It is understood that he made It plain
that Doctor Brumbaugh felt the neccsslay
of having men close to the counsels of tho
Republican Organization for this office.
He also Indicated that the new Governor
had tho fullest confidence In the Integrity
and personal honor of Mr. Blown. Upon
these giounds opposition was withdrawn.
Mr. Brown was a candidate for tho of
flco of Attorney General In 1010 after the
election of Governor Tenet. Through a
political play of McNIchoI, however, the
Vares were unable to put him In tho of
fice. The McNIchoI candidate nt that time
was former Sheriff Joseph Gllflllan, one
time personal counsel for McNIchoI.
When the fight became ery close, Mc
NIchoI adroitly offered to compromise
on John C. Bell, who also had formerly
been an attorney foi McNIchoI.
When the Vares icallzed that they had
been duped the breach between the two
factions of the Organization biondened,
and the activity of the South Philadelphia
leaders In the Maoralt election In 1911
was tn part a reflection of the contro
ersy over the failure of Governor Tenor
to appoint Mr. Brown.
BROWN WON PfGGEBY FIGHT.
Francis Shunk Brown Is best known ns
the personal and political counsel of tho
Vares. Ho is also a trustee of the Isiael
Durham estate. It was Blown who
represented the piggery owneis in South
Philadelphia when Director Cooke made
his fight to have the pWgerles lemoved.
Director Cooke openly asserted that
the piggeries were under the protection
of the Vnrcs and immediately after
wards, by a strange coincidence, Brown,
tho Varo attorney, became the attorney
for the piggery owners. The latter or
ganized Into an association to protect
their Interests nnd it wns Brown who
carried tho case to tho cuurts and who
so exercised his legal ability that the
piggeries still remain a South Phila
In the course of the trial Brown op
posed the testimony of former Director
of Public Health Ncff, who charged that
the piggeries were a menace to the public
health in the southern section of tho city.
While during late ears Brown has been
Intimately Identified with the Vares and
other Rtpubllcan Organization leaders. In
his earlier life he was a staunch Demo
crat Late In the '90s he was regarded
as ono of the leading Democrats In this
city and was repeatedly urged to run for
public office. He declined nominations for
several offices, however, among them
being that of district attorney.
Just When or why Francis Shunk Brown
transferred his political allegiance to the
Vares, one-third owners of the Organiza
