a twelve inning game with tho Cubs,
probably tho greatest game ever staged
O'Toole bus boon a very erratic pitch
er this season. Ono cannot go behind
Uio facts. But ho haa weathered his
trials bravely and is still plugging
along, confident and enger to hit his
winning Btrido. Skeptics who ridiculed
tho outlay of the big sum to St. Paul
for his services havo tried to raise tho
"I told you bo," but OToolo has shown
enough to furubih n hundred argu
ments to tho contrary.
After tho fans haw had their nay

and after critics everywhere havo pock
ed nt him and harped on his hard luck
and failing offorts to win a lot of
games it la a good idea to hearken to
tho opinions expressed of OToolo by

quard, Frank Schulte, Dick Hoblltzel
and any number of lending lights havo
extolled tho merits of O'Toolo and have
declared him to bo a wonderful pitcher.

schemo to ruin Uio Republican party,
1b a dlroctor.
The nppearanco of tho womon
workers In this plant," Bald a member
of Uio commlttoo, "was very dls-
hoartenlng. Thoy wero worn and
palo nnd their oloUics, faces and
hands wero covered with oil and homp
cloth. Many of theso womon, bo called,
aro only children In ago and thoy havo
to lug huge piles of hemp, weighing
1C0 pounds each, across tho floor, the

Uio womon themsolves. In tho spin
ning room, whoro women aro employ
ed alone, to tho .exclusion of men, who
would havo to recoivo higher wages,
Uio clatter of machinory is bo fright
ful that a volco below a shriek cannot
bo heard. Tho rooms aro dark, though
for no necessary cause, and no at
tempt is mado to remove tho dust,
which is kept In constant motion by
tho line shaftings despite tho require
ments of tho law. This dust is
breathed continuously by tho womon,
many of whom complain of chronic
coughs and colds. Tho dust and dirt

many cases consists of but a few
minutes and at tho closo of tho day's
or night's labor, tho girls havo to

It is further Btatod that Uio custom
of working tho women all night Is
permanent, married womon being se

When Goorge W. Perkins was asked
by a Now York Times reporter for an

toward largo corporations, which has
mado it Impossible for managers of
large concerns to know whether they
