    National 8-Hour Day and Industrial Peace
Some men see further into the
future than other men enn pen
etrate. Some men have convic
tions and stand for them. There
are men who nut selfish inter
worker and the lumbering and
shipbuilding: industries of the
Pacific Coast especially should
not be asked to compete unfair-

spruce. Moreover, his opinion
is that within twelve months
the production will be more a
man in 8 hours than it has been
in 10 hours. He goes still fur
ests and money grabbing before the cheap labor in the Southern ther, expressing thn belief that
all else, including principle and mills and factories which now labor in logging camps and mills
community prosperity. A high work 10 and 12 hours a day." will be contented working shor-
tvno of cit zen is the man ol
vision, the man who sees a pub
lic need and prepares to meet it,
the man who would lead in the
direction of social justice, true
prosperity and industrial peace.
Take the case of the 8-hour
day. Wealthy men, generally,
oppose the shortening of the
work day. The reason is not re
mote. In Portland a bitter fight
has been made against the pro
posed change from the 10-hour
day to the 0-hour day and thn 8
hour day. Yet there are men,
and not Labor Union enthusiasts
either, who have firmly stood
for the reform and who now
stand for a national H-hour day.
Take Uie case of S. H. Huston,
lawyer and legislator. He has
stood for the short work day; he
now stands for it. Here is what
ho says:
"The recognition of the jus
tice of the principle of the ba
ilie 8-hour day in the mines,
millB and factories of the Unit
ed States allows little argument.
The short workday has already
been voluntarily established
among millions of workingmcn.
National legislation is roipiired
to compel its uniform adoption
an (I observancit The wnge
Yes. Huston is a candidate for
the United States Senate. Hut
here is the testimony of a man
who Is not a candidnte for office.
He shows the wisdom of Hus
ton's position, the strength of
his position. Colonel Bricc P.
Distiue, head of the spruce pro
duction bureau of the War De
partment, forced the 8-hour day
in the lumber industry, and he
says it will bring industrial
peace. He says:
"I believe that under the ba
sic 8 hour day, more spruce will
be produced per man in Oregon
and Washington during the next
12 months than during the last
12 months without the basic 8
hour day. I believe the 8 hour
day will be accepted by the
workmen and that labor condi
tions will be more settled."
Because of the habit of wage
earners in the enmiiH and mills
of the Pacific Northwest shift
ing frequently from one place
of employment to another, labor
has become per cent less elll
eient than normally, according
to Colonel Disque, but he believes
that with an 8-hour workday
the highest efficiency of the
men will be attained and shown
in tin production of fir and
tor hours and with the greater
efficiency attained one workman
here will accomplish more than
two colored wage earners in
the South, and therefore in
practice the new order of
things in this region will work
out to the distinct advantage
of the local lumber industry.
Speaking of conditions in
the South, Colonel Disquc says:
"1 spent eight years in the
South and I would rather have
the work of one contented, in
dustrious Northwest lumberjack
than two negroes."
And, a final word by Colonel
Disque, indicating real indus
trial pence on the 8 hour day ba
sis: "I am satisfied that the
lumber industry from this day
on will beone which the govern
ment can depend upon for the
maximum and uninterrupted pro
duction throughout the period
of the war."
It does not require the wisdom
of a philosopher to discover
where the interests of the work
ers lie in the senatorial contest.
If Organized Labor's slogan of
standing hy his friends is fol
lowed S. 15. Huston will get the
vote his atlidude justifies.

new business for many
stomachs, but the same may be
the better for it. So long as
we can keen away from the diet

made, but there are no doubt;
many who would enjoy seeing
tho Kaiser forced to subsist on
Neb's forage, at least a friend
has so expressed himself.
Sergeant Patrick Cochran,
stationed at Camp Fremont, has
been spending a short furlough
