But it is i. it nee« -sary to consult labor

situation. Boston coinunm tells the
story better. 1 n cent iy spent a Sunday
there. It was a characteristic Boston
crowd, well mannered, quiet, earnest and
deeply troubled if not bewildered. That

It linens of the Fair.
To visit the fair with profit or com-
fort you must leave your sense of duty
behind. Whoever goes there with intent
to thoroughly "do it" is laying up foi
himself anguish of mind and the com-
plete annihilation of his muscular and
nervous force. It is far too big for any
question of conscience to be allowed ti)
enter in.
Its bigness is beyond description. No
words or pictures can tell the story ot
its size. Experience alone can teach it.
You must go there day after day, to re-
turn at night with tired eyes and aching
limbs, and with the bitter and ever ill-
creasing knowledge that as an exhibi-
tion you can never grasp it. Where oth-
er exhibitions lnive been satisfied with a
display of 1U0 cubic, feet of any special |
article, Chicago must have at least an
acre. Of whatever the world has see i
before this time, it now sees larger sp<
imens and more of them. This meai. i
for the visitor more steps, more fatigue,
more confusion, more time and mora

A IlurKlur Alarm.
The other night people living near King
street were awakened by cries of "Help,'
"Thieves," "Burglars," etc., in a female
voice. The bold men hurried 011 their
clothes and rushed out iuto the night.
There'on a tin roof stood the figure of a
woman clad in a light wrapper, and in
tremulous tones she declared that there
were burglars down stairs. As she would
not venture down to unlock the door,
the men secured a ladder, and arming
themselves with clubs went up 011 tlm
roof and in through the window ar.d
down the stairs. But the burglars did
not show up or even the slightest trace
of any.
Down in the cellar, however, they
found a lighted lamp which the lady had
left there herself in the early evening
and forgotten about. A grown daugh-
economic system, but each having a dif- tcr, who was the only other occupant of
ferent solution. There were at the time, t|ie house, bad looked out of her window
I would say, 5,000 people on the com- jn the night, and, discovering a stream of

were drawn there to hear the baud music
furnished at the expense of the city.
One speaker was wading through tho
nice calculations of the single tax the-
ory and telling some 800 hearers that
America must soon choose between
ground rents or chaos.
At some distance, near the public gar-
dens, were heard the passionate appeals
of a long whiskered, orthodox revivalist.
On the brow of the hill an eloquent
woman was addressing a fine group of
socialists. She described in really thrill-
ing manner the effect of selfish competi-
tion upon the laboring women and girls
of Boston. Near by a scholarly looking
individual led his audience, which was
by no means small or impatient, up to
his belief in the approaching second ad-
vent of Christ. Near the band stand a
young minister, who had recently left
the pulpit apparently because lie could
not square his religion with the ethics
of cruel competition in business, was
talking to many interested hearers about
nationalism and advocating the practical
schemes of Edward Bellamy—govern-
ment ownership of the railroads, tele-
graphs. telephones, express companies
and the securing to the producer by law
an equal and just share in the things
Thei% was another group of revival-
ists and a seventh group of men, whom
I took to be proletarian socialists, ear-
nestly discussing economics in a conver-
sational tohe among themselves. Nor
did the scattering people about the com
mon escape the importunings of reform-
ers. Literature of all kinds, except |
such as get into the plutocratic news-
papers. was distributed upon every !
hand. In fact, poverty and political
economy had possession of Boston com- '
mon, and it has been so all summer.
To any one, who knows Massachusetts,
Sundays 011 the common, as any one
may see by going i 0, are more signif- .
icant even than a dozen strikes or a j
bread riot, and neither a band of music
furnished at public expense to calm the
multitude nor salaried revivalists can
dull the impression one gains of the sol-
emn discontent that is beginning to
sweep over Boston.

Eugene V. Debs of the American Rail-
way union hits tho nail on the head
when he says that the attempt of some .
of tho railroads to take advantage of the
"hard times" to reduce Wages is not so
much for the saving for a few months,
as pretended, but with the knowledge
that it would take several years' effort
on the part of the men to have the stand-
ard restored.
"When any company has passed a div-
idend," says Mr. Delis, "and caused the
rich stockholders t > feel the pinch, then
it will be time to pinch the employees.
If the company had pursued a policy of
voluntarily raising wages when they
Were raised in thu past, the men would
be far more willing1 to heed the request
for a reduction without questioning the
assertion that it had become absolutely
One Employer.
Dr. Warner, a large corset mnnufac-
furer of Bridgeport, Conn., lias done an
unusual thing. His business became so
slack that he felt compelled to reduce
the working time in his factory to three
days a week and to lay off many of the
women and girls in his employ. But
recognizing a moral obligation which is
so generally ignored, ho refused to throw
upon the helpless workers the whole bur-
den of bad business. He lias provided
freo board for all the girls who are
thrown out of work by the curtailment
of operations in his factory and an-
nounces his purpose to continue this
benefaction while tho stagnation lasts.
He is thus sharing with his employees in
a time of distress the profits he has made
in better times.
What THE TIMES is:
A high-class newspaper for the city
reader and for the country home: for
the merchant, the professional man,
the financier, the politician, the teach-
er. the farmer and the mechanic—for
every American who would be prompt-
ly and truthfully told what the people
of this world are doing; for women and
for young folks, Interested in house-
hold affairs, in new books and old, in
art, science, religion, and education,
in the rivalries of amateur sports, in
society, and in all the lighter goings-
on and wholesome gossip of the day.
It is a full clean, and complete news-
paper, conducted with intelligence for
intelligent people.
What THE TIMES believes in:
Federal taxation imposed in the in-
terest of the government and of the
whole people, not for the restriction of
trade and the benefit of the few: an
honest dollar that the band «>f toil may
receive without loss and pay over with-
out shame; a liberal expenditure for
j elisions to vt terans who need and de-
'crve tliein, and to no other: : the l> nt-
oeratie Part.\ as a better instrumental-
ity of popular government than tlu
