In tho opinion ot ttie Court oE inon Pleas ot Va.y^lt6 coi.nty, Jurist Morrow expressed tho attitude- of Hi? court wlion euggeatingr th.tt "the law should he flexible enough to be applicable t6 changJiiK conditions." Tho private owners oC-yautomobiles ov the owners* or trucks used in the transportation of goods are liable for ages that may result X i u i ot their drivers. Hqutty AvouM appear to demand that agencies ot the State should, under like circumstances, bo etjuallv liable, or sorrm provision should be made whereby awards could be made to injurxl persoiis. Judge' Morrow holds, h iwever, that it is not the province of tho loiver courts to so interpret the law, but "it is rather for our -higher courts than for us to depart from the beatn path." Until there Is greater irberaltty in rulings by the higher courts respect- Ins agencies of the. C6mmouwealth, or there ib nvb'diflcuHot of 1ho law, recovery In cases ot dura \gos resutlng from tho negligence of men ag-encie-s or thoir employes, \vltl be a right denied to plaintiffs la ueh actions. There may be injustice in this but it is one of the inequities of tho law.

Compromise Tariff Different From Bill Of Senate Is Likely Controversy Hinges .on Flexible 3.VoYls!on Which l*re- ident Wishes Retained. }:y DAV1O I.AWRCNCK \VAS31INaTON, Feb. C.-- An oarn- t effo -t is goin^ to be mode in ln- to reorgani/o tho i»rc-«nt Tar- jtf Commission. A compromisse between )he viewH of Prcsldant Iloo\er as embodied iu tho Urifl bill pasa«d by the House and the prcrlsloa* of t n entirely different chttra-'jUr writ- inn I n t o the Senate bill, i» When the measure was last dehitled in llu« Senate tho issue, was, sharp I y dsawti between the VresidS'nt and his opponents Congreaa will not consent to a delegation of all tariff malting powers to the Kxocutlve while Mr. Hoover is just as determined tha* tho old idoa of a board lo recommend change a to Congress Aoca not lead to constructive action Ropi-08*ntatlve Davenport of New York, one of tho ableat memboVa lu tb^ HOUBC, ha,* introduced a bill in- tendcc 1 to set up machinery for tentative action by the President, at the same t i m e permitting Congress to disapprove tentatho changes in d u t - ies If not in accord with Oongi-oa- blonal policy. Till-! is In the nature ot a compromise, as Mr. Davenport contends, it leaves the control of tariff rates In the- hands of Congress and yet provides a disinterested board to make detailed studies and recommendations which in turn can be checked by the President and by Congreus There is no doubt that the Tariff Commission idea is in itself favored by all parties, but the question ical- ly is where the ultimate power shall be lodged, Nolthe-r the executive nor Congreas seems wUliiig to lot tho commission Itself have the final say. Mr. Hoover's request for flexible provisions wore intended to permit the Chief Kxccutivo to act when Congreaa was not in session, and also to cle- vlop the method whereby particular schedules could be taken up without reopeuing the whola tariff law. The, big item iu tho controversy is political influence, "Where will It be oxejted? At present tho pressure is applied against mcrobors of Congress generally.] If the Chief Executive had the power to modify the tariff he would have lo withstand all the political pressure that would be con- cent rated on his office, Under Represent Ettive Davenport's pltm the Executive could accept' the reeoinmenda: tions of tho Tariff Commission but Congress could interpose an objection . *The advantage of tho scheme lies In the fact that it would .require a majority acl o! 'Congress to disapprove the tentative action taken by tho President, In other words., minority groups would not have as much chance to get aproval ot their particular claims unless their cause happened to command ( h a support of a substantial number lu both 'Houses. This would moan that the President and tlio Tariff Commission in mont liiBtiintea would control the slluatloi! though hero again on vital questions OOUJCWHH would probably, by joint resolution or otherwise,, indicate its vit-ws to Uis Uhie-f Executive, The Davenport compromise would on tho t i t h a r hand take earn of many minor ruangcs In tlie tariff, somo ot IhHti ot an .idmlulslratlvp nollarr n nro prompted by changes in Failure of Lincoln's S)n to Pass College Examination Ga?e Father Start for Presidency Tbo faliuro ot Abrfth kin Lit coin's son, Robert Twfcl Uncoln. to ^ s « hla l'nSver«tty cntr.mc* ex rainfl- In the «u.'auQ«r of US9 ^ as au i m p o r t a n t factor In w i n n i n g f t - Mn- c-ltt tl»c eaulern mppor thnt p it him on !h«i path to th» \VhU- House for U wais chieOy bC'cnue* it offered tn op- p o r t u n i t y to visit tho y u n l b th t Mti- rolu egrwd to come- easi arj) m he the uidr«s that woo fur f Iro tho nprwj- sary ««!port of N'v T "oifc a r t New Bnglnntl.

The oxrlieinont which · tnvept tho country following ho John Brown episodes however, prompted the Young Jieu'a KftpubUranu Union of New York to prevail upon tho Ilev. Mr. Beefthor to permit Lincoln to speak on tho political «ltua(lon under tho aus r jiicos of that body, and the address^ was transferred to tho Cooper Union auditorium, to Now Yorfe. "When first invttwl in the previous autumn to appear in tho Plymouth church lecture course, Lincoln had not fully realised tho political (significance ot his eaHtorn journey," eays T)T. Shaw, "tile acceptance had "uce-n chiefly influenced by the fact that his youug Bo'n_, Robert Todd Lincoln, was attending" a Now England school, Phillips K?eelor Academy, pi sparing under much difficulty to pasa examinations for tho freshman close at Harvard, Llnaoln thought of tho lectum as an opportunity to come- east atd vlelt hia son, who had failed in tho entrance examinations iu the previous aammer and had been eent to the academy for an additional year of preparation, finally entering tho college in the fall of I860." Lincoln's address aroused Now York and -won for him the support of uuch InflaenUaJ editors ae Iloiace Greoley, William Culion Bryant aud others. "After spending Sunday with Robort, he made speeches at Hartford, New Ilaven, Bridgeport, and eleowhere in Rhode Island and Connecticut," relates Dr. Shaw. "It WGH roaeburing to eastern Republicans lo hear a leader whose calmness and poised judgment contrasted w-ell with tho t-end-onciee to hysteria that were prevalent on account of recent occurrences. . The re- uctione of the eastern trip were- favorable in Illinois and Lincoln returned to find himself steadily displacing Soward as the favorite candidate of his own state lor tae presidential nomination." · Abe Martin Tlipr' l l m i 1 see a plcl ire of a bla B u i i i f f h i n t T B l n n t f i n ' ' y «. fallen Miliiocoro-i I w a n d e r If IK could h l l » r.ihbjt, Tlicr /(perns to ttt i?ianfy o' n i o n p y fcr ovrr'ttliii,- but Makes 53 Inventories ^ Then Goes On Strike STEVBNSVILLE, Mont., IPel), 6-After 54 years, the worm turned aud With tli© turning, J.

Try tlwsm, Wages in 5~and~10-Cent Stores Are On a Low Standard Tho weak, linic in chain stores oC the 5-and-10-ceJit variety te failure to pay many of their girl employee wages sufficient to procure the necese Hies of life. This fact is clearly brought out 3n a recently published report on limited price chain dopartmeji stores by Miss Mary Elizabeth. Pidj;eon of the Woman's Bureau, United States Department of Later. Twalv-e dollars a week can ..carcely be called a living wage In this, day ot high costs, but $13 was! found to 'bo the median,--or middle point -of the earnings for a week in tho last quarter of 1028 of elightly over 6,000 girls in 179 liiplted-^rice stores scattered throughout IS titatea and flie additional cities. Only seven par cent of tho girls earned as murfh as $18, white 70 pet- cent earned lees than $15, an«i 2G per cent less than $10. Fixed s-elling prices irrespective of locality are a well-known policy of the chain gyetorn, "b'ut it le i/pparenl from, the "Women's Bureau figures that wage standards differ from state to state. California, for examp 1 e, t h e j median was $10, the minimum wage permitted by law tor experienced workers in the state. Michigan with a $15 median aud Kentucky v 11 h a $14 median ranked jie-xt. The EiedUn of $8.SO for Maryland was tho 1 xwest for any state, but a J9 median tvau reported for eix--Alabama, Georgia, Kanaas, Misaiseippi, South Carolina, and TeAneesee. The other itates included, in the survey, with their medians, aro as follows: Arkansas, Oklahoma m)d Florida, ?30; Dele ware and Rhode island, $11; Ohio, $12 and Mlb- aouri and New Joraoy, $13, In the nve additional citfos median earnings wore 512 In Boston, $13 in Imlianapolie, $14 in Now-Yorfc City and Milwaukee, and ?1S In Chici go. The- low wage figures »hwn in the report to bo typical Of th') induetry «eom ouf of harmony with puch sound economic pollcictt as overheid Bavinga due to centralixed purchasing and (jtiantily buying, rapid sal«i turnover, small profits on articles eoJd in big volume, buying and «?!li'ig on the each bafete, abolishing delivery cost and advertising expense--features ol these etoiea also stressed in the bulletin. * Th phenomenal increase in sales-one chain reporting a, 350 per cent Incieaee from 1012 to 1927, IB noi paralleled by any striking advance in , wag*es in the peat few year«, accord- '-, ing to the report. In a few states live data'secured give valid bases for comparisons o! earnings in 1928 with earplugs in 1921 and 1D25, Mies Pidgeon points out .Some reduction is shown in 1938 in the proportions of women receiving Iho lowebt rates, but no positive Indication ie given of a general increase In the groupa having rates or earnings ^ in the highest ranges. Limited-prico etores suffer by com- pariBon with mont otuer industries in the matter of was© standards, the liul- letin shows, tho claim being eupporUxl "by btatitttica available ior 15 states. Attention is called to tho fact thai while the limited-price department store has to eontond with inexperienced and shifting 1 labor and that some 'ahains endeavor to mitigate in a. email degree the low wage by somo form of bonus or vacation eystem, nevertheless tho standards of payment arc very low indeed in comparison with those in many other industries in whatever btate or year studied. That the different 'G-atid-10-eent chains are not all plated and engraved with tho fcame wage standards is another fart brought out by the acid test of the analyses made in tho study. Ot five chains compare*!, wago rates in one tended to bo consistently lower aud those In another consistently higher than was tho case with, the remaining tlireo chains. This Jlen Dop«s Triple Duty.
