Pacific Coast Faces Serious Immigra
tion Problem With Opening of
A. Harris, who is editor of the
Portland Labor Press, represents Or
ganized I^abor, spoke at Assembly
yesterday' morning, on “Great Pro
blems that f ace the People of Ore
gon.’’ Mr. Harris is the first labor
representative to speak to the stu
dents this year. He spoke once be
fore to the students in the journalism
department on his work as an editor.
He said yesterday that the greatest
problem facing the people of Oregon
is the solving of the immigration pro
blem, which will inevitably come with
the opening of the Panama Canal. He
said that.the Slavonic peoples will
come here by the thousands and over
run an already crowded labor market,
to force their standard of living upon
our native laborers. We must find
some place to put these European peo
ples when they come. Unless this
problt m is solved, he predicts a slum
problem that will rival that of the
Oregon Needs Development.
“ The solution,” he said, “lies in the
claiming for cultivation the logged-off
land of Western Oregon, and the thou
sands of arrest of table land in Eastern
Oregon, which will not yield si living
for colonists in its present condition.
This problem must be worked out in
the next two or three years and the
man who does it will have served hu
manity as much as Abraham Lincoln
did in freeing the negroes.
“This is one of the steps in the bet
terment of living conditions for hu
, inanity as a whole, for which Organ
ized Labor is working. It is not for
mi- own special benefit, but for the
people of the whole state, that we are
working. Wo have representatives in
Italy and other countries of Southern
Europe outlining to the people there
the living standards of this country
and teaching them the value of main
taining high standards when they
come here. Our problem, really, is
prevention rather than cure, and that
will be the easiest way out of the dif
Conditions in Oregon Had.
Mr. Harris spoke briefly of the de
plot able conditions of living among
the timber vv irkers of the state, forced
upon them by the employers because
they have no organization, lie said
that was one of the problems being
considered by Organized Labor at the
lie spoke of the purposes of Organ
ized Labor, of which he is a member.
"Thor e have always been people, from
the beginning,” he said, “who have be
lieved that a man should get a fair re
turn for effort, and that is the prin
ciple for which we have labored. We
have gained an eight hour day over
nearly the whole country, and have
gained a wage that allows for reason
able comforts in each home.”
