Ironwood Times, The (Newspaper) - October 22, 1926, Ironwood, Michigan THE IRONWOOD VOLUME XXXVIII GOGEBIC OCTOBER NUMBER 35 NOAHS OPEN SHOP Tjj Noah heard the flood was due He started out and built his ark To sail the swift expanding The home of porpoise and of The ancient union men stood by With hands on and They We cannot help this guy Unless his job is While Noah plied the saw and plane With Ham and Shem and Japhets He offered lots of jobs in vain To union men of every The walking delegates appeared And tried to organize his But Noah simply persevered Until his jolly ark ivas i The rain came up rose the And Noah asked them on his But all the union men replied board your darned nonunion ship then the wellknown flood arose And Noah came through safe and While even as you would suppose Those ancient union men were Saturday Plowing Right On Through QUEEN MARIE VISITS US QUEEN Marie of Roumania arrived in Kew York the first of the accom panied by her many trunks of Parisian cos tumes and prepared to do the country in proper And sassiety in all the larger cities which she is scheduled to visit is all agog over the coming of this representative of real We note that the governors of several of the states have appointed so ciety dames as the official greeters and wel comers of the Roumanian and we have an idea that this was in many ways a more difficult task than the making of ap pointments to really important we presume that the country will live safely through the visit from the queen and we hope that the hard which and probably result among our royalty may pass away in due course of In the as we read of the magni ficence of the costumes of the visiting and the lavish expenditures incident to her we cannot forget that many of her subjects are the most poverty strick en people of the civilized being de prived of even nthe barest necessities in thi way of food and We presume that we are not as apprecia tive as we should be of all this royalty busi but we cannot help feeling that we would have a greater appreciation for Queen Marie if she spent less on herself and more for the relief of her suffering business street in the Lowell street never will be of any material impor as a business hence the exten sion of Suffolk street is the logical plan for the betterment of the It is true that we cant have the Suffolk street extension the coming and possi bly not within the next two or three if we are fair minded in the we will all go after this Suffolk street and secure it at as early a date as is B I EXTENDING SUFFOLK STREET T is somewhat surprising that the pro posed extension of Suffolk street south across the Norrie cave order to make a direct connection with theNorrie location and Route should meet with opposition from any of the business men of the Suffolk street still continues to as it has been for the past thirty the prin cipal business street of on it be ing located by far the majority of the busi ness houses of the including the three The extension of this street would give people traveling over Route in Wis a direct route into and undoubtedly be of much material ad vantage to this of the not a small part of COMSTOCK STUBS HIS TOE ZTWEEN the democratic nominee for and the republican a new issue has been issue of political It has been raised by who says of his political opponent before a Kalama zoo audience The when they voted for Mr Green as against Governor regis tered a protest against oneman government and if they are brought around to see that before they will not vote again for It is evident that he lacked sin cerity in the manner of handling that and it has been proved since the primary by the way he has hedged on the Greens original pronouncement on this question when announcing his candi dacy for the republican nomination was giv en at Ionia in this language An administrative board elected by the people with its members assigned to the dif ferent departments of state such as treas with the governor as presiding officer hold ing a veto power that would require a two thirds vote of the board to could be made to serve the people efficiently and The harsh truth is that there is an over iroduction of willing beauties and Cvery prosperous every successful ad finds there are cultivat unscrupulous young women alert for him at every The voice of does no cry in the for one of the first to answer him is Edgar DeWitt Jones of Detroit who replies in Detroit Motor News that there are fewer beautiful women than we have a right to Our researches into this and The average cost to the state was 92 cents a bird or During three years under the state trap per plan there were taken 320 198 wild 525 weasels and at an average net cost of a bird or This would be a convincing showing were it not for two considerations 1 the that the average cost under the trapper plan was so much greater largely because of the tremendously greater kill under the bounty plan of hawks and weasels and 2 the con proved in specific that largp numbers of the most deadly predacious ani namely foxes and wild on which bounties were were not killed in the but were shipped in for the pur pose of collecting It may be convenient for the opponents oi the trapper plan to at this that one of the impelling reasons for its in troduction was the knowledge that the boun ty plan has been and to consid erable extent by but the fact And it is a fact that can not be In estimating the situation the Conserva tion Congress took cognizance of it to the extent in declaring for the bounty it declared that in its reintroduc tion every precaution should be taken to pre vent but it gave no serious discus sion to the question of how the statistics had before it of results under the bountj plan were invalidated by Many well informed and sincere men be lieve that the game situation would be im proved by restoration of the bounty and there will be a strong movement to bring it But if this is done it should be done only after a careful examination of al the facts bearing on the merits of the ques and an analytical examination of the statistics to determine with regard to the truth OUR DEVELOPMENT BUREAU the situation in a South Dakota speech in which he said If we could secure the lowered transpor tation charges promised and thereby restore an additional G to 12 cents per bushel on we would add a very im portant percentage of the farmers It is generally agreed that the price of our farm products is determined at those points on our seaboard or abroad where the competitive streams of exports come togeth Thus the price at the farm is the price made at this junction less the cost of transportation and handling to this mar Ocean freight charges have remained about the same as before the war because che standards of living of the rest of the unlike our own have not increased over prewar Railway rate increases have forced the Midwest farmers to pay from 6 to 12 cents more per bushel in freights in order to get their products to Therefore the foreign farmers reach the world market at a lower cost in proportion than can our Mid west For prewar a South Da kota wheat cost to reach Liverpool by the cheapest while a ton of Argen tine wheat reached the same point for Today the increased freight charges on this ton have moved the Argentine only further from while they have moved the South Dakota farmer further I believe we can contribute greatly to remedy this situation by improvement of our The railroads are now showing an effi ciency which is very gratifying and no one wants to interfere with this efficiency by cutting down their rates below the cost of The development of the waterways will help the farmers without injuring the Business in uhe United States is increasing so fast that the railroads will have difficulty in keeping I they have been very lead to the inclusion that both Wells and Dr Jones should sheath their If over production of lovely women sears Wells soul as it apparently let him pack his grip and flee into the rural solitudes where willing beauties and heroines how many of them have tripped through Wells own pages seldom penetrate to challenge the supremacy of dour dairy maids and farm No one need suffer from the presence of beauty in this for the ave nues of escape are too Every road does not lead to Atlantic As to Jones it may be that we are too easily that our eye kindles without due We must resort to Detroits feminine population numbers approximately half a Assuming that only one per cent of the ladies may be termed a dis niggardly there are of those exceeding fair within the city Granting that two out ot every 100 women deserve more than a casual we find ranks of the beautiful As a matter of a great mistake was made when the extension of Suffolk across the cave to the Norrie location was aban doned several years and the Townsite Mining company was allowed to take over the ground used in this extension for stock pile At this time an extension of Lowell street was built across the this at that it was estimated that a crossing at Lowell street could be built cheaper than could one at Suffolk and the city was desirous of econom izing as much as possible on public improve The Lowell street howev has since proved to have been a as the people of the Norrie location are obliged to go a long way around in order to use this and people do not like to go the longest way around these days to get to a given While Suffolk street as we one of the most important if not the most impor T is said that the people of Dickinson coun or some of do not wish to contin ue their financial aid to the Upper Peninsula claiming the bureau does no work in that The bureau does a general work in adver tising the upper peninsula as a I does not select any particular county in district to give special bu boosts for them and quite impartially according to our The adver tising of the entire upper peninsula has been very liberally according to the meant at the bureaus and Cloverland embraces the entire upper Each county that believes in its natural advantag es ought help carry on in this big work of as each ought to have a com mon interest in making this region better The tourist trade has grown to be a very important one with and the visitor to any county will naturally tell about all oth er The big work has been to get the attention of outsiders in coming here and every visitor secured is an important factor in making our entire peninsula better As we it is the duty of every county to help on in this big advertising and none should take a selfish view of We know that the officers of the bureau are trying hard to aid all por tions of giving their time free with And in addition to helping the farmers he inland waterways will help the manufac turing cities and towns which lie along and near these And the growth of Jie towns will naturally help the The development of the inland waterways and the cooperation of the railways in the would mean more prosperity for ev And the system would unquestion ably help the and help him in a per manent way without raising his as sessing him for benefits or attempting to up set the laws of supply and As recently as Saturday of last week Green said at Cassopolis I would not abolish the administrative but I would give it the power to over ride the governors veto by a twothirds

without stating precisely the same and he has referred to it Comstock is inexcusably in swelled to If we figure on a five per cent basis which is about the legion of beauty marches Even in a city of a such a throng cannot pass to the further dis we of Wells and the satisfac tion of ly and without charge to this So let us give them credit rather than and remember that no one portion of this penin

MANY BEAUTIFUL WOMEN AFTER a careful scrutiny of contempor ary Wells has taken pen in hand and explained to startled read ers of the Cosmopolitan that there are too many beautiful Says Wells IN DEBATE AGAIN ITH changes in the game conservation department impending it is to be ex pected that there will be renewed discussion of the comparative merits of the bounty and the state trapper plans of keeping down the predacious At the meeting of the Michigan Conserva tion Congress at Saginaw figures were pre sented that on their face indicated that the bounty plan was much more effective than the one now in They show that in the last three years un der the bounty plan bounties were paid on 765 wild 904 weasels and hawks and owls help the which is equivalent to help ing and hustle for the big Iron ONE WAY TO HELP LL sorts of schemes have been devised for helping the some of them practical and others Amony the practical plans is the one which calls for the development of our inland It is easy to see that if the farmers of the especially west of the Mississip pi had water transportation to the seaboard they would get cheaper freight rates and consequently more money for the Secretary Hoover recently summed up THAT CALL OF INVESTIGATION WHILE no one will object to a close and searching inquiry being made into the Ironwood mining yet all who know the men in authority for the Oliver Mining will regret that the matter was made the occasion of a fanfare by seekers after notor No one felt more keenly the weight of the accident than those in These men have constantly upon their shoulders the responsibility for the lives of their em ployes and they feel their responsibility The Oliver Iron Minnig spares no ef fort to safeguard the lives of its Accidents are economically bad
