Cotton Mills Shut Down-
The 1.300 operators of the Meisacku.
setu cotton milla have been notified
net to return to work until April 'ti.
The e tire plant will lie closed on ac-
count of the dull market. The Tre-
mont and Suffolk eotton mills have
laid off three-fourths of the operative*
for an indefinite time, la all six thous-
and operative* will be idle in I^iwell,
this week, and at fall Kiver. Mas*.,
about 17,000 employe* of the cotton
mill* were notified last Saturday that
there would be no work this week.
The suspension will be the moit gen-
erous of any week since the decision to
curtail production was made. About
the twenty-five corporations, owning
some forty mill*, nearly the number in
the syndicate agreement will stop.

It may be readily admitted that Mr*
Nation accomplished lotne good in the
beginning. Hhe doubtless did much to
revive interest in the enforcement of
the law. and the sseliug she aroused
may have been useful in lit- ping to se-
cure the 'paiiage of the prohibition

But the attention paid her ha* turned
her bead. She can no longer preserve
even the pretense of being a divinely
guided reformer of the John Brown
type, fhe is simply a mercenary,
shrewdish old woman who is doing the
esuse of temperance a great deal more
harm than good.
