The career of Henry Clay Frick
By the Associated Pres?
WASHINGTON, Doc. 2 —General recommendations on legislation to combat the cost of living, labor unrest, radicalism, and a readjustment of the nation to a peace time basis were the features of President Wilson's animal message to congress delivered today.
The peace treaty, the President told congress, will be discussed in
a separate message later, as wJ1’ also

established the precedent of addressing Congress in person his message was read by clerks.
The President’s principal recommendations were:

that he was also one of the principal magnets in that industry and in rounding out his carcer he became known as one of the world's greatest collectors of master plaitings.
Mr. Frick was born December 19. 1849. at West Overton. Pa. This village was named after the maternal grandfather of Mr. Frick, Abram Oberholt. whose original family name was Oberholtzer, and who settled in Western Pennsylvania when that region was regarded as the frontier of civilization As the settlements along the Allegheny and Mononcohela grew, and Pittsburgh emerged from its swaddling clothes.
became the leading lier of Western IVnn daughter. Elizabeth. W Prs ok. a young incestrv. who at that as working as an engin«*er Overheat distillery. Ii was from this union that the future capitalist was born. The father attempted fanning, but did not make a remarkable success of it and as a result young Henry Clay Frick was practically adopt'd into the Overholt family when he w as about 12 years old. He received a good basic schooling. but there was nothing in his boyhood to indicat* rile remarkable ability which characterized his later life, except his eagerness to get into business For a time he was bookkeeper in his grandfather’s distillery and from that position he went to Morgan and Company, coke dealers, and at about 21 years of age he appeared in Pittsburgh as their agent The coke industry was in its infancy. The iron masters of Pittsburgh were just beginning to appreciate the value of coke for their furnaces. Young Frick had an opportunity to acquire a limited interest In a plant at Broadford and out of the profits of this he acquired other holdings. He later joined a company to build a railroad to penetrate into the Connellsville coke regions, and in 1871 the year the road was opened, Mr. Frick completed the corporation of Frick and Company which bought coal and coke ovf*ns in the Connelsville region. That was the basis of the Frick fortune. The undivided attention of the rising financier was given to coke until 1882.
In the midst of this period there carne the panic of '73 and the financial crash of many ambitious operators At a sheriffs sale Mr. Frick purchased additional tracts of coal; land and ovens, and a few years the I Mellons. powerful Pittsburgh bankers, became interested in the expanding enterprise of the young op-; erator.
The Carnegie, their great steel bu burgh, had taken large holdings in the Frick

Recognition and relief for veteran soldiers of the world war. particularly in the way of government farms as proposed by Soc. Lane.
Proper measures to foster the dye stuffs industry, built up during the war to keep the United States independent of foreign supply.
An elaborate program for rural development in recognition of the farmers' part in the war.
At this point the President made his most extensive reference to the peace treaty by saving that the causes for the present unrest are superficial rather than deep seated and they arise from or are connected with the failure on the part of our government to arrive speedily at a just and permanent peace, permitting a return to normal conditions: from the transfusion of radical thorpes from European centers; from heartless profiteering: and
lastly from the machinations of passionate and malevolent agitators.
The president renewed his recommendation for legislation to deal effectively with ‘‘‘those sons who by violent methods will abrogate our time tested institutions".
Several recommendations were made by the president to bring down the cost of living. Among them were extension of the food

The gas pressure is very low and coal is impossible to obtain. Fifty business mbn of the city met with Mayor Watts this morning and arranged for the opening of the yard. Mayor Watts has sent messages to surrounding towns and to large wood producers offering to buy all wood loaded on cars or hauled to the city.
Municipal prisoners are to be put in the yards to cut the wood. Busn-ness men have donated wagons and teams to haul wood to customers in the city.
Suffering at Enid.
ENID, Dec. I.—Failure of the Oklahoma Natural Gas company to supply a sufficient amount of gas to the Enid distributing company to combat the cold wave whlth broke here last Wednesday night and has continued since, caused Enid citizens to thresh out the problem of obtaining a sufficient supply is possible.
various parts of the state are determined to prosecute cases of disloyalty and intend to invoke the new "anti-syndicalism" law enacted by the last legislature to halt the spread of seditious doctrine and curb disloyal acts. The anti-syndicalism” law was drafted by State Senator Luther Harrison of Ada, and is regarded as one of the strongest statutes intended to curb disloyalty. Known as Senate Bill No. 242, the "anti-syndicalism” law, as it appears on page HO, chapter 70, session laws of 1919, defines syndicalism as follows:
"Criminal syndicalism is hereby defined to be the doctrines which advocate crime, physical violence, arson, destruction of property, sabotage, or other unlawful acts or methods as a means of accomplishing or effecting industrial or political ends, or as a means of effecting industrial or political revolution for profit."
Sabotage is defined in the following language: "Sabotage is hereby defined to be a malicious, felonious intentional or unlawful damage
