Interesting explanation of the
iccent sit Ike of operatives In
the National Cash Iteglstcr company's
model factory at Dayton, U. As our
leaders know, this establishment has
I celt looked upon Hie wiuliL over as
embodying in Its iiichitcctllio a nil lib
eral iiiiiimrt incut the most adviineetl
Ideas In the tiealinent ol labor. The
emplo.ves In it lecclved good wages.
The union tale for polisheis hi Day
ton was SJ"ifi. The cniploycs of Hip
lasli leglsler toncern received J1,."o n
tlay. FoiiikIi yiupti, liofnie the union
ctablislietl a ?l.."u late per tlay, earned
Iroiu y to "7 a tlay. Other labor was
paid lu piopoitlou.
Mut aside fitiui wages, which won
generous, the employes of the cash
leglsler coiKcin wcie tieated most
munlliceiuly. They wcie on trlcndly
tt rms with tlieir cmploers. They eu
loycd piUileges and comforts enjoyed
by no othoi t oiisidprablp body of om
ploves in the woild. Tlioy wcie lar
nislied with .suitable clolhlng in whitii
to work. They weic given a good mid
day lunch at the expense of their em
ployeis. They had libiailes, rest
moms, pianos, let tines all given
them bj their employeis. 'i'hey were
eiicouiagetl to make their homes Ivmu
tllul. Sunday s( bonis wcie oigan
izetl anion!; them. They had any
nuniber ot liteiaiv and sileulillu .so
cieties, line kindcrgai tens ami many
other thing?, all of ilicti seemed to
tlielu thioiigli Ihe pilot is ot the men
lor whom they winked.
.Votvv Ithstandlng tliis, because four
mouldtrs weie tllshaigetl on Jlay 1
for iueomplcncy, I, "00 winking people
went on Ml Ike and ipiii. lined out of
woik lor np.iily si weeks, losing
ne.iily a million dollais In wagps. Thp
men dlsthaigcd weic pioles.sion.il agi
tators who .slighted tlieir woik in older
lo foment tioitble. One of theli
giiovanie.s which they woikeil up
among the factoiy hands -was that the
washing of the eompan.v'.s towels,
which weie furnished Hep to Hie em
ployes, was given to poor women in
1 lie neighhoihootl ami not l.i union
Iaundiies. Another was that the door
springs used on the factory tloois to
pi event janing wcie of non-union
inanufactine. They had to be ip
nioved. Various other petty gi lev -duces
weie ti limped up I mm time lo
time until Hie management of tho
factoiy was conn tinted with the piob
lein of whether It was going to ictain
tontiol of its own vvoiks or ield it to
committees of the unions. When this
Issue was diaun over the discharge of
the lour objectionable moulders, the
operatives slrtiek and t loscd Hip
plant down, but we understand that
they have since letuined to woik on
the company's conditions.
The fate of the bill to pi event tho
if., of hm.iclc and other acids In tho
puservation ot meats, shows that
legislative sentiment upon embalmed

Money Article, Headed
"Trie Financial Situation
published each Monday, has for 15
years been looked for with tho great
est inteiest in banks and counting
rooms and among all financial men,
and has been tespected as perhaps
the most intelligent review of the

this article, Monday, June 3, tho
Sun in the course of a leview of the
business and condition of the South
western Bail way systems says: "An

inson for good is the oil discoveries.
People here have not paid as much
attention to this matter as they
should. The general tendency has
been to scout it as a craze. But
there is no longer any doubt that it
lepresents a permanent and almost
incalculable increase of wealth to the
Southwestern territory, and hence,
inevitably, to the Atchinson, South
ern Pacific and other railroads in that
section. These railroads will gain
much by the additional business
generally growing out of the new de
velopment, but their chief product
will be in the astonishing saving
rendeied possible to them in the cost
of fuel. A ton of coal in oil does not
cost over 1, whereas the coal used
by the Southern Pacific and Atchin
son raihoads last year cost between
$3 and ij4 a ton. As the expendi
ture for this purpose is nearly 25
per cent of the total cost of trans
portation on the roads, the import
ance of the now found economy is
apparent. It means millions of dol
lars to these railroad properties."
This article fairly lepresents the
trend of thought toward tho oil in
dustry among capitalists generally.
The magnitude of the industry and
its importance as a source of wealth
is perhaps not yet appreciated by the
geneial puonc, out tne leacieis in
finance recognize fully that oil and
its numerous by-products is to cut a
great and constantly growing fig
ue in our domestic and export trade,
the extent of which is already colos
sal. To make money in oil it is only
necessary to discriminate carefully
and invest in stock of companies
that aie under practical and respon
sible management and have large
holdings of oil lands secured at low
prices. THE PACIFIC COAST AND
TEXAS Oil. COMPANY is such a
corpoiation and this stock offers the
best opportunity to investors of any
