(By Charles Perry Taylor,
Secretary Washington State Feder-
ation of Labor.)
It is with, considerable regret
Tiiat one notes In certain quarters
Luck of appreciation of Labor Day
Of labor papers.
Knowing how bard a struggle labor
Every day yt their lives
To carry on the good work,
It is a pity anyone should know.
The editor is the labor goat
And carries burdens beyond his
Do not slam him with "holier than
He knows better.
In the case of his critic, "two years
Ought to silence criticism many
The esteemed working class
Always wants something for nothing.
Unwilling to support
Its own papers as it should.
It expects its editor to beg his living
Prom the business world
And at the same time berate the busi-
Labor ought to supporf its papers
Without a line of advertising patron-
If it believed in its cause
Half as much as it pretends,
It would do so.
If the working class wants the labor
press to succeed,
It will boost, not knock.
When next anyone feels like roasting
The labor paper.
The roaster ought to look in the glass.
And then go out behind the barn
And kick himself in the face.

AN INDIVIDUALIST'S PROTEST.
You may determine the distance of
a star by multiplying the number of
seconds that it requires for a ray of
its light to travel to the earth.
You may know exactly what will
result when certain chemical sub-
stances are brought together.
Rut you never can tell precisely
what a man will do under circum-
stances which have been familiar to
the world since the beginning of time.
I The element of human nature will
not permit itself to be classified and
catalogued. It resents every attempt
I to force it into the laboratory for the
| purpose fo analysis. It objects very
strenuously to being placed upon tin1
operating table for the purpose of dis-
There are degrees of human nature
so fine that they cannot be measured
by the most exact micrometer that
was ever invented. To the man who
vould cram it into a mould it mani-
fests its indignation by breaking the
barrier that confines it. You cannot
deal with men as the entomologist
deals with his millions of buys. They
lefuse to be "grouped." And they
prove it by annihilating the carefully
made deductions of the sociologists.
Sometimes these superior beings |
are surprised to find that their "sub-
jects" have forced their way into the
"holy of holies"—the very social
grade to which they themselves be-
long. No longer are these "high
brows" the "high priests" with pe-
culiar privileges. Their sociological
rules cannot account for it. They re-
gard with astonishment the working-
man who seems to possess powers
equal to their own.
With impunity have they been
prodding their kid-gloved fingers into
his private affairs. Without, shame
have they been "slumming" in th«>
respectable tenement house district
in which he makes his home, subject-
ing his wife and children to the humil-
iation of the outcast in society.
No, ye students of the working
classes, ye cannot deal with us as ye
deal with the beings and the objects
of a lower social order. But "brother"
is an open sesame to every heart,
even though each heart may have a
beat all its own.
Secretary Opposes Forced Arbitration.
Joliet, 111., Oct. 14.—William B. Wil-
son. secretary of labor, declared him-
self an opponent of compulsory arbitra-
tion of disputes between capital and
labor in an address Thursday before
the Illinois Bankers' Association.
"If an employer is compelled to oper-
ate his plant," the secretary said, "even
though the award would mean the oper
ation at a loss, it would only be a ques-
tion of time until his entire capital
would be absorbed. If an employe is
on terms unsatisfactory to him, it
would be a species of compulsion con-
trary to 1 he spirit of our institutions."
Mr. Wilson also announced hims« If
as an unbeliever in the strike and lock-
out, advocating in their stead a busi-
nesslike council of interested parties.
At the convention of the Brother-
hood of Electrical Workers held in St.
Paul, last month, Frank'J. McNulty
was re-elected President and Charles
P. Ford was re-elected Secretary. Tho
entire administration was re-elected
and Springfield was again chosen as
the headquarters for the international
organization. All the old officers nave
made good and the convention was
harmonious from beginning to end.
This is the first meeting of the Elec-
trical Workers since the seceding fac-
tion came over to the recognized fac-
tion and the attendance "Vvas the larg-
est in the history of the Electrical
