.Xhc bones were found by Joseph
Schmalzle on his farm. They
aroused his curiosity and he took
them to the ortlce of Dr. G. T. Rod
ham, at Hawley. who identified them
as the bones of a child. As no other
child has ever been lost in that
portion of Pike county. Dr. Rodham
is convinced that the disappearance
of young Glass has been partially
He will take further steps to con

Son of the Late Solomon
Alexander Starts Action
Against Codicil
York. Pa., Sept. 30. —A contest
involving the Validity of a codicil
to the will of the late Solomon A.
Alexander, for many years a master
mechanic of the Pennsylvania Rail-;
road Company in this city, was be
gun before Judge Ross yesterday.
The disputed codicil purports to be
queath $3,000 to Mrs. Jennie K.
Jacoby, his housekeeper, for "faith
ful services for many years." and
further provides that if any of the
children contest the bequest to Mrs. I
Jacoby, such child should be disin
herited. O. A. Alexander, a son and |
one of the seven children of the
decedant, is contesting the Jacoby)
bequest on the ground that the •
father did not sign the alleged codi
cil and "never knew of the exist- j
ence of the paper or of the execu-1
tion of it." The entire estate!
amounts to 35.620.82. which, ac-:
cording to the provisions of the will;
and a first codicil, goes to the seven:
children of the decedant in equal:
shares after such minor bequests to •
others. If the second codicil, now)
disputed, is valid, the fund for the)
children will be reduced by $3,000.)
The case comes before Judge Ross.
on an appeal from the decision of;
Register Edward Bupp admitting)
the disputed codicil to probate. The i
codicil in dispute does not bear the |
names of any subscribing witnesses I
and is said to have been written on J
Alexander's own typewriter. It was;
found among Alexander's private j
papers in a box in his room, en
closed in .an envelope, addressed to !
George S. Schmidt, his counsel, ana)
executor of the will.

Radicalism Causing
Unions to Lose Favor,
Declaration of Redfield
Washington. Sept. 30. —Because
ot "radical action and leadership"
organized labor is losing public
confidence. Secretary Redfield said
"The radical action shown In
the Boston police strike and the
radical leadership appearing in
the steel strike." said Mr. Red
field, "seem to me to threaten the
loss of public confidence in the
constructive and conservative na
, ture of organised labor and to
cause the labor movement a serj
ous injury.

bor I deeftlv regret what I fear
will be injury to its progress

the rostrum, that, when the war was
over, we were going to realize a real
democracy, based upon the honesty,
the integrity and the responsibilities
of the whole people.
"Where oiy ancestors of the
eighteenth century grasped at the
shadow which was political democ
racy, we of the twentieth century
would realize the full measure of
our sacrifices and would achieve, for
ourselves, for our children and our
children's children, the real sub
stance of things sought for, which
is industrial democracy. Every
subtle influence that would touch
the hearts of men, that would quick
en the pulse and inflame the sense,
was appealed to in the name of the
new democracy that was to be after
the war was over.
"The late Theodore Roosevelt, in
one of his last articles, written for
the Metropolitan Magazine, said:
'We ought to insist—wherever nec
essary, to guarantee by government
action—that an equitable share of
the increased -work done by the
workingman should go to that man
himself.' And President Wilson, in
his message to Congress on May 20,
1919, advocated 'a genuine democ
ratization of industry, based upon
the full recognition of the rights of
those who work, in whatever rank,
to participate in some organic way
in every decision which directly af
fects their welfare of the part they
play in industry.'
"Now. we say we have paid the
price. We raised an army of over
four millions of men. we spent up
ward of thirty billions of dollars and
we sacrificed over one hundred
thousand lives to make the world
safe for democracy. As a result ot
these sacrifices, the world has now
been made safe for democracy, but
making the world safe for democ
racy does not insure detmocracy.
We are convinced now that the
American people can only secure
that measure of democracy that
they can take and that they will
assume responsibility for, hence our
What They Demand
"We now demand of the powers
that be that full measure of democ
racy and justice which our service
to society entitles us to. We don't
want any longer to be left at the

autocrats who are more arrogant,
more brutal and more tryannous in
their methods than were the gov
ernors general appointed by King
George 111, against whom our his
toric ancestors revolted in 1776.
"We want to know now, in the
light of recent development, just
what our rights are. This is the
point. We want our economic rights
defined as our political rights have
been defined and we want the em
ployers' rights defined, also. We
want an industrial court established,
where, after our rights have been
defined, if these rights are in

Steel Strike Settling Down
to One of Endurance
Pittsburgh, Sept. 30.—T0 all np-'
pearances the steel workers' strike i
has virtually settled down to one;
of endurance. Yesterday's efforts .
by each side to make a breach in j
the ranks of the other having failed
to cause a serious break, the steel
companies now are prepared, ac- !
cording to some of the officials, to j
begin a wearing down process to end |
the .strike.
Strike leaders to-day expressed
confidence that the ranks of the
strikers would not only remain solid,
but will be increased as the cam
paign of the army of organizers in
the Pittsburgh district continues.
Ail the steel companies that made
public reports of operations to-day
claimed men are steadily returning
to work. They assert they are com
ing back in small numbers and are
being placed on jobs without any
confusion. Tonnage, it was also
claimed, is steadily mounting.
An early telegram from the
cast, it was said, at union head
quarters, claimed that tlie Beth
lehem plant or the Bethlehem
Steel Company was 85 per cent
down and that tlie Steelton
works of tlu* sante concern
near Harrisburg were crippled.
The telegram also stated that
reports indicated the response
! to the strike call was not as
general at the company's small
er plants.

Union Representatives
Claim 80 Per Cent. Are
Out at Bethlehem
Bethlehem, Pa., Sept. 30. The'
second day of the strike at the
Bethlehem Steel Company's plants
brought conflicting statements from
the two sides to the controversy,
union representatives claiming that
eighty per cent, of the men were out
and officials of the company declar
ing that the situation was satisfac
tory, and that all their plants were
operating virtually at full capacity.
Lender Arrested
Union leaders after a meeting in
Allentown last night said their re
ports showed that three rolling mills,
the mechanical repair department
and brass foundry were completely
shut down and that with a few ex
ceptions all other departments were
seriously crippled. These leaders
declared that many of the workers
who reported for duty yesterday did
so merely to get their tools and that
they would join the strikers' ranks
to-day. •
No disorder has occurred in con
nection with the strike. One arrest,
that of the secretary of a local
union, has been made. He was taken
1 into custody for trying to persuade
employes not to go to work.
According to the statement of a
high official of the Bethlehem Steel
Company here, the company's plants
I at Sparrows Point, Steelton and Leb

The Bethlehem plant is in full oper

| Farmer Must Pay
Tax on Cider He Sells
Sunbury, Pa., Sept. 30.—Farmers
who attend the local curbstone
market, which is one of the largest
j in the State, learned something to
day, and that is that they must pay
a government tax of ten per cent,
on all the cider they sell. It is an
internal revenue tax, and a severe
penalty attaches to failure to pay
up, according to deputy revenue col
lector W. Fred Jacobs. No matter
in what stage of alcoholic content
the "stone" fence might be, this
tax must be paid, if any Is sold.
Cider for home use is not taxable.
It was said.
