DoinsInGoiham The Educational VcationAn Unclerical Prelate Made Her Homesick A Bid For Fame jt ja 9 From Our New York Correspondent ECENTLY I asked an acquaintance a middle aged man who holds a very re sponsible position in a downtown financial institution how he had planned to spend his va cationIts going to be educational this year he replied Ive come to the con clusion that its about time for me to learn something about this big old town But you are a native I suggested Thats my only possible excuse for being so everlastingly ignorant he declared with feeling No native New Yorker knows anything outside of his beaten track As boy and man I traveled the same route for fortytwo years Ask me about something that doesnt lie within that route and I cant give you an intelligent answer I can get from my home on Morning side heights to the lower Broadway skyscraper where I put in the day without danger of becoming an estray only dont ask me to vary the route I have a certain familiarity with the theater district as it looks by artificial light Its possible that I might find the Metropolitan Museum of Art Ive never tried it Ive read and Heard of Chinatown the University of New York and the Russian cathedral but Ive never seen them Im dimly con 4 scious that the city is full of things worth seeing but dont ask me to a make a list of them But youve been abroad several times I reminded him Thats just it thats where the absurdity comes in he insisted I know my London and my Paris a good deal better than I do my New York No sir I dont know a thing about little old New York and I never saw a native who did Its the people who come from Oklahoma and similar re gions that actually know something about the city They spend a week in the rubberneck wagons and boats v and when it is over fpj they are betterpost ed on New York than any native J 4t who ever opened his eyes on Manhat tan Island This frank avowal reminded me of my experience in locating the big in stitution of learning on University heights Failing in my earjy endeav ors to find it I resolved to ignore theI guidebook and to keep on inquiring un til I met some one who could tell meI how to get td the Hall of Fame which Is the premier feature of the univer sity After a period of eight months during which I had propounded the query to more than fifty persons in all walks of life without definite result I made the discovery myself by accident Dr David H Greer who has been bishop coadjutor of the Episcopal dio cese of New York for the past five years and will now become the regular diocesan in succession to the late Dr Potter is probably the most unclerical looking minister in America The last time I saw him he had been officiat r ing at a confirmation service in a lash lonable uptown church An ultra smart coupe driven by a man in Mul berry livery awaited him at the vestry iV entrance First to appear was a sleek negro manservant bearing a trim suit case in which were the prelates vestments This he deposited care fully in the coupe and then the bishop coadjutor issued from the vestry door was assisted into the coupe by the obsequiouscolori ed man and whisked down the avenue The twen tieth century up to date ecclesiastic was attired in churchgoing apparel of the most proper cut and finish Prince Albert coat gray trousers a fancy 1T waistcoat high hat andwould you

De partment Mr Mitchell Will Have Fine Opportunity for the Exercise of the Talerts He Has So Often Turned to Good Account New York Aug 5John Mitchell former president of the United Mine- Workers of America today began toI devote his entire time to the interests of the trade agreement department of the National Civic Federation- As a member of the executive coun cil of the federation Mr Mitchell has been chairman of the trade agreement committee but far more aggressive work than hitherto has been possible became desirable In making the offer to Mr Mitchell to assume charge of this work Seth Low president of the federation wrote to Mr Mitchell It is our belief that through this department you will find an opportunity still to use in the in terest of industrial peace and advance ment the great experience and influ ence you have gained in your long ser vice in the United Mine Workers of America It goes without saying that in this industrial age industrial questions in cludng the relations of employer and employes are among the most vital and pressing questions of the day You will be able no doubt to command the cooperation in the work of your department not only of the rep resentatives of organized labor but of that great body of employers of labor who recognize and sympathize with the aspirations and aims of labor and from thjs organizedj vantage we think you may render enduring service to the country in a field not second in influence to any otheK Under date of July 17 Mr Mitchell accepted Mr Lows offer replying I desire to thank you for the oppor tunity thus opened to me to develop so far as lies in my power a relation ship between employers and working men which will conduce to their mutual interest and protecting the public welfare by the promotion of industrial peaceThe trade agreement is not a spec ulative untried theory On the contrary it is the recognized and established method through which wages and conditions of employment are reg ulated between workmen and employ ers in many of the most important in dustries of the interdependence of la bor and capital it gives to the working men an interest in the successful con duct of business and guarantees to employers and employes alike long periods of industrial peace an assurance that cannot be given through any other agency The maintenance and extension of this system of regulating conditions of employment and industry should meet with the approbation of all forces in society solicitous for industrial peace on a basis equitable to the working men and to their employers Campaign

his home in Dubuque Iowa Tuesday afternoon the immediate cause of death being heartfail ure The end came as a result of a serious sinking spell due to a pros tatic enlargement complicated with kidney disease and during a period of unconsciousness which lasted since Saturday afternoon Two weeks ago the senator left his home in the city to escape the heat He went to the home of Mrs Fannie Stout a friend of the family living on WILLIAM B ALLISON the Asbury road a few miles from town For a few days his condition seemed to improve but he later began to grow worse Medical advisers urg ed that an operation be performed to relieve the prostatic enlargement which was bringing his condition to a crisis Saturday morning the senator was brought back home Soon afterward he relapsed into a condition of semi unconsciousness Except for brief pe nods of partial recovery he remained in this condition News of the serious illness of the aged senator was kept from the public as much as possible and his death came as a surprise to inIhis critical condition Life Devoted to the Public ilSenator Allison was born at Perry 2 1829 the son of John ad Mary Allison His boyhood days he spsnt on the farm which was his birthplace Reaching young manhood he secured his education in Allegheny college in Pennsylvania and the West ern Reserve college of Ohio in both of which schools he distinguished him theIIHe

5The terribly destructive forest fires which have swept through the Crows Nest district of the Elk river valley in Brit ish Columbia since last Saturday devastating a vast stretch of territory destroying many lives and millions of dollars of property wiping out entire towns and rendering thousands of per- Sons homeless are still raging but are now sweeping a wild and sparsely set tled country and it is believed the worst is over It is impossible at this time to arrive at a summary of the situation as re gards loss of life and property with even approximate correctness So widespread has been the destruction and so scattered are the people who lived in the burned area of more than fifty miles in length rid three miles in width that any estimate of the num ber who met death in the flames is nothing more than guesswork Stories of missing settlers are coming from Fernie Cranbrook Michel Hosmer and other places but many of these have turned up at some point far from their original habitation and it is not believed the death list will exceed fifty namesThe property loss has been very great but this too is difficult to estimate correctly A conservative valua tion would probably place the amount at 6000000 or 7000000 Several thousand persons have been rendered homeless principally residents of Fer nie which according to all accounts is almost completely wiped out scarcely more than a score of buildings be ing left where once a prosperous town of 5000 inhabitants stood There has been suffering among the homeless owing to lack of food and shelter but this has been alleviated or partly relieed by the prompt action of the people of every city in British Col umbia as well as many of thosp on border states in sending both money and supplies This aid has been most

Great Railroad War New York Aug 5After a contin uous battle of five years to control the first transcontinental railroad George J Gould has been forced to admit de feat and has surrendered to E H Harriman his oldtime enemy and on Harrimans own peace terms This latest deal taken in connection with the Rockefeller extension of the St Paul road to the coast makes the Rockefeller interests practically the dictators of the Rocky mountain and Pacific Coast business In the office of Kuhn Loeb Co at Pine and Williams streets Gould ex ecuted the papers which it is announced will provide him with funds to meet the 8000000 Wheeling Lake Erie notes maturing tomorrow and will materially change his standing in the railroad world Whether it will mean the complete effacement of Gould as a railroad mag nate is problematical that it will re move him from the galaxy of first magnitude is not questioned This development is of farreaching significance in that it means the vir tual abandonment of Goulds attempt to form a competitive transcontinental line consisting of Western Pacific Denver Rio Grande Missouri Pa cific Wabash Wheeling Lake Erie WabashPittsburg Terminal and the Western Maryland system- It probably means according at least to the interpretation placed on it in financial circles that Harriman is WheelingIMr Gould will be able to maintain the independence of
