It has the whole country in its grasp. In some sections it has caused great suffering and thousands of dollars" worth of damage. From Iowa City comes the news that the Vnlversity of Iowa has been closed for the remainder of the wek on account of a coal famine. Down In Texas' they are entertaining the cold wave in true Western fashion. The heaviest snow of the winter fell at Fort Worth Wednesday. North Texas is experiencing the heaviest snowfall iu many years. Chicago and St. Louis are having their troubles, too. Practically all of the trains going into St. Louis Wednesday were delayed from ouo to four hours. The samo was true of Chicago. In Milwaukee the snow was coming down at a rate that has not been experienced in that city for severai years. In the mountains of I'ensylvunia zero weather is causing great suffering. Wednesday morning hurried to work in a "7 abovo" atmosphere. The Quaker City, however, doesn't, hold the cold wave palm by any means, for. at Lincoln, Neb., the fellow citizens of Col. William Jennings Bryan saw their thermometers drop down to 14 degrees below. At Omaha the weather man 4 degrees below zero. tin-les- THAT STATUE OF R. E.

As the best cough remedy we Solar bodies above the seventh magnitude cannot bn aeen without the aid of a telescope. Extraordinary attention Is being paid to the return of this celebrated comet. It la of particular Interest to scientists because It was the first known to travel In a closed orbit Ita brilliancy, sensational slie, record of Its returns the consternation once spread through the world by the belief that It would destroy the earth-m- ake it the most famoua comet in history. In 1682. In the reign of Charles II. of England, a comet of extraordinary alze appeared, which was observed by Newton. Halley and other astronomers of the time. Halley fotlowed Its course among the stars and, comparing his observations with the records of previous comets, came to the conclusion that the comets of Hf.6, 1S31 and 1C07 were only different appearances of the same object He staked his reputation on a prediction that the comet would return In about 76 years. True to this prediction. It did appear in 1768, when Edmund Halley had been sleeping In his grave for 14 years. The reasou the name of a Saxon peasant, haa been preserved to posterity la that hla eye was the flrst to catch sight of the returning comet It wu on Christmas night, 1768. he saw the comet and cheated the professional astronomers of the honor. The flrst recorded appearance of Halley's comet was U. C. 130. when It was believed to herald the birth of Mlthtidates. In 10C It waa seen equal to the full moon In alze. In Its appearance In 1456 Its tall reached from the horizon to the zenith. The following facta connected with the appearance of tho comet In 1835 re taken from Herschel's "Outlines of Astronomy:" It developed no tall until October X and on that day the nucleus waa observed to become suddenly brighter and to throw out a Jet of light from Its Interior part.

It would certainly be fair for tho company to do tbeso thfngs If lawful fpr tho Labor Trust to do them. In such a caso, under our laws tho boycotted union could apply to our courts and tho courts would order tho company to cease boycotting and o trylns to ruin tbeso union men. thereupon tho company should mccr at tho court and In open deflanco contlnuo tho unlawful acts in a persistent, carefully laid out plan, purposely Intonded to ruin the union and force Its members into poverty What n howl would go up from tho union demanding thnt tho courts protect them and punish their oppressors.

That Is an honest Canadian iew of our infamous "tabor Tru.t" A few. days ago tho dally papers printed tho following; (tly the Associated Press.)) Washington, I). C. Nov. 10. Characterizing the nttltudo of Samuel Gompers. John Mitchell and Flunk Morrison of tho American Federation of Labor In tho contempt proceedings in the courts of tho District ot Columbia, In connection with tha Ducks' Btovo and rnngo company, as "a willful, premeditated violation of Iho law," Simon Hums, general master workman ot tho general assembly, Knights of tabor, has voiced a severe condemnation of theso throe leaden. Mr. Durns expressed his conQdcnco In courts In general and in those of tho District ot Columbia In particular. a' work-Ingme- This rcbuko by Ilurns was In his annual report to tho gonornl assembly ot his organization. He received tho hearty approval of tho delegates who heard it read nt their annual meeting in this city. "There is no trust or combination ot capital in tho world," said Mr. Durns, "that violates laws oftcner than do tho trust labor organizations, which resort to more dishonest, unfair and dishonorable methods toward their competitors than nny trust or combinations in tho country." Mr. Durns said the nctlon of "theso leaders" would be harmful for years to como whenever attempts wero mado to obtain labor legislation. "Tho tabor Digest," a reputable worklngman's paper, says, ns part of an article entitled "Tho beginning ot the end ot Gornpersltin, many organn izations becoming tired of tho policies which have been enforced by tho president ot tho A. F. of U" "That he has maintained his leadership for so long n tlmo In tho face, of his stubborn clinging to policies which tho moro thoughtful worklngmcn have seen for years must bo abandoned, has beon on account partly ot tho sentimental feeling on the part ot the organizations that ho ought pot to bo und tho unwillingness of the men who were mentioned forthopleco, to accept a nomination in opposition to blm. In addition to this, thero is no denying tbo shrewdness ot the leader ot tho A- - F. ot U, and his political sagacity, which has enabled him to koop a firm grip on tho machinery of the organization, and to havo his faithful henchmen In tbo positions where thoy could do Mm tho most good whenavur their services might be needed, "Further than this, bo txls novor f alloc), at tho last conventlpns, to have some sensation to sprlno' on the convention, at .the psychological moment, which would place hlpi Jn the light Of a t.wtyr to the causa of unionism, and rulo-or-rui- Art'ROvrD nr nrxrcuTrn. erclte a ware ot sympathetic enthusiasm for him, whlrh would carry the delegates off their feet, and result In bis "That bis long leadership, nnd this apparent Impossibility to fill his place has Rono to his head, nnd made him Imagine that ho ts much greater a mati than ho really Is, Is undoubtedly the case, and accounts for thn tactics he has adopted In dealing with questions before congress, whero ho has unnecessarily antagonized men to whom organized tabor must look for recognition of their demands, and where labor measures are often opposed on account of this very antagonism, which would otborwiso receive support "Thero Is no doubt but what organized labor In this country would be much stronger with a leader who was more in touch with conditions ns they actually exist and who would brine to the front tbo new policies which organized labor must adopt If It expects to even maintain its present standing, to say nothing of making future progress." We quote portions ot another articlo, a reprint from tbo same Labor paper: "Organized labor, through lu leaders, must recognize tho mistakes of the past If they expect to perpetuate their organizations or to develop tho movement which they head. No movement no organization, no nation can derelop beyond the Intellects which guide these organizations, and If tho leadora aro dominated by a aelfl.h motlvd the organization wilt become tinged with a spirit of selfishness, which has never appealed to mankind In any walk of llfo at any tlmo sinco history began. "It can bo said In extenuation ot certain leaders ot organized tabor thit tho precarious position which they occupy as leaders has had a tendency to causo them to loso sight of the object behind tho organization. Tho natural Instinct in man for power nnd position Is In no small moasuro responsible for tho mistakes of the leaders, not necessarily In labor unions alone, but In orery branch of society. This desire for power and leadership and personal aggrandizement causes men who have bocn earnest and slncero In tbolr efforts in the start to detcrlorato Into mere politicians whoso every act and utterance Is tinged with the desire to cater to the baser passions of the working majority In tho societies or organizations and this is undoubtedly true when applied to tho present leaders of tho Federation of tabor. Wo mention tho Federation of tabor particularly In this article, because that organization Is tho only organization of labor which has yet found Itself In direct opposition to the laws of the land. Thero are other organizations of labor whoso leader havo mado mistakes, but they bavo always kept themselves nnd their organizations within tbo bounds of the law nnd respected tho rights of every other mnn In considering tho rights of themselves and their constituency; whereas, the motto of tha Federation Is Just the reverse, and unless the loaders conform themselves nnd their organization In accord-nncwith tho laws of tho land, tho leadora nnd tha organization Itself must bo disintegrated nnd pass Into history, for In America tho common sunse of mankind is dovclopcd to a greater extent thnn In nny othor nation on tho earth, nnd tho people, who aro the court ot last resort In this country, will never nUow any system to dovotop In this country which docs not meat with the approval ot tho majority ot the citizens of tho country, "This must havo forced Itself upon the leaders of tho Federation by this tlmo. It It has not, tbo leaders must be eliminated. Tho organization which they bead has dono many meritorious things in tiuios past and tho peoplo aro always ready nnd willing to acknowledge tho bcnetlts which tholr efforts have brought to their constituency as a whole, but at tho present tlmo labor organizations In general, and the Federation ot Labor In particular, stand before the bar of public opinion, having been convicted of selfishness and a disposition to rule all the people of the country In the Interest of the few.

O Delight nnd pathos nro Inextricably mingled with the thought of NVw Year's day. It Is only a convention al point of time- .any other would do as well. Every day closes an old year nnd begins n new one, but for nil that we ennnot help feeling that tins day, winch Is agreed upon throughout Christendom for the beginning of Uio now year. Is some how nnlquc. Tho pathos comes from the review of the past, and from the sense that another notch has born cut for us on tho stick of time. The delight arises from tho anticipation ol the new and better experiences of the year to come. What Interest any rational person could bavu in having his forttino told Is a mystery. Ths zest nnd charm of life consist largely In the fact that each day Is Ilk.- a new pace In the story. If you wish to enjoy your book you do not, when It Is half read, turn to Uio closing chapter to learn bow It turns out. You do not thank anyono for telling you tho plot. It Is so with life There Is Infinite satisfaction in each day's contribution to tho record You do not want to anticipate It It would bo a curse If anyono could tell you just what tho year would btlng. It Is Just as reasonable to supposo that tho year will bo happy as sad. Who can tell? Who can control that? Are wo not In the hands of God? That Is tho reason for a happy New Year's day. - FOR SALE: A nico residence, one A Glance Backward. block from Postotflce.
