tbe happiness of all the rest of oar
people depends most of all npon tbe
welfare of the wag-worker a ad the
welfare of tbe farmer If we can secure
tbe welfare of these two classes we
can ba reasonably certain that tbe
community as a whole wi'l prouper.
And we must never forget tbat tbe
chief factor in securing the welfare
alike of wage-worker and ot farmer, as
of everybody else, mast be the man
i himself.
"I strongly believe in trades unions
wisely and justly bandied, in hlcb
the rightful purpose to benefit those
connected with them is not accom
panied by a desire to do injustice or
wrong to others. I believe in the duty
of capitalist and wageworker to try to
seek one another oat, to understand
each the other's point of view, and to
j endeavor to show broad and kiudly
human sympathy one with tbe other.
"I believe in tbe work ot these great
temperanoe organizations, of ali kind
red movement's like tbe Young Men's
and Young Women's Christian
Associations, in short every movement
which strives to belp a men by
t-aoblng bin to belp bimself. But
' most of all I believe in the efficaoy of
the man nimselt trying continually to
' increase Ms own self respect by the
way In which be does bis duty to
bimself and to his neighbor."
