ROOSEVELT OX LABOR AND CAPITAL.
The address of President Roosevelt at the New York
State Fair on Labor Day was characterised by perfect
fairness and good sound sense. It was not only sensi
ble and true, but it was fit to the occasion, and spoken
at a time when the crying need for such sane words is
visible on all sides. Every citizen ought to read all
of it We regret that we have not space to print it
here. But we may, at least, call attention to one or
two striking paragraphs. The President said:
"We can keep our government on a sane and healthy
basis, we can make and keep our social system what
it should be, only on condition of judging each man,
not as a member of a class, but on his worth as a man.
It is an infamous thing in our American life, and
fundamentally treacherous to our institutions, to ap
ply to any man any test save that of his personal
worth, or to draw between two sets of men any dis
tinction save the distinction of conduct; the distinc
tion that marks off those who do well and wisely from
those who do ill and foolishly.
"There is no worse enemy of the wage-worker than
the man who condones mob violence in any shape or
who preaches class hatred; and Burely the slightest
acquaintance with our industrial history should teach
even the most short-sighted that the times of most
suffering for our people as a whole, the times when
business is stagnant, and capital suffers from shrink
age and get9 no return for its investments, are exactly
the times of hardship and want and grim disister
among the poor. If all the existing instrumentalities
of wealth could be abolished, the first and severest
suffering would come among those of us who are at
least well off at present. The wage-worker is well ofl
only when the rest of the country is well off; and he
can best contribute to this general well-being by show
ing Banity and a firm purpose to do justice to others.
"Ours is a government of liberty, by, through and
under the law. Lawlessness and connivance at law
breaking whether the law-breaking take the form of
a crime of greed and cunning, or a crime of violence
are destructive not only of order, but of the true liber
erdes which can come only through order If alive
to their true interests, rich and poor alike will set
their faces like flint against the spirit which seeks
personal advantage by overriding the laws, without
regard to whether this spirit shows itself in the form
of bodily violence by one set of men, or in the form of
vulpine cunning by another set of men."
All visitors before they see the President at Saga
more Hill visit first with a secret service man. who is
stationed about a hundred feet from the house. He
sits in a big elk-horn chair which was given to the
President on his recent Western trip, and looks like
almost anybody, except the person whom most of the
guests expect to see. They all look for a man with a
heavy dark moustache and a glint of steel in his eye
the very sleuth they've read about. Instead, they
usually find a trim, well-built man who steps up to
their carriage and inquires whether they have an en
gagement with the President or not. , If they have, he
takes their names, compares them with the names on
the list which has been given to him, and, if there is
no disagreement, passes them. If the visitor's haven't
an appointment, he directs them to the secretary's of
fice down town. Under no circumstances are cards
taken in to the President unless an appointment has
first been made through the executive office. In this
respect it is much harder to see Mr. Roosevelt there
than in Washington.
A recent dispatch to the Chronicle from Pittsburg,
Pa., contains some facts regarding large building en -terprises
that have been discontinued until the labor
conditions are more favorable. Comment is unneces
sary. The dispatch says: "There is likely to be a
general cessation of building operations during 1904,
which will make that year memorable. The state
ment of one of the largest contracting concerns in the
country connected with railroad construction work is
the basis for the assertion that at least $180,000,000
worth of building operations proposed for 1904 have
actually been called off. The Pennsylvania Railroad,
which dow has enough improvements under way and
-contemplated to make an expenditure of $')0,000,000
in 1904, has decided to withdraw all of these plans;
-and to do nothing more with them until there is a
more placid condition of the labor market. Informa-
COLLEC.K BOYS AS HARVEST HANDS.
Quite a deal of fun is being poked at heroic college
lads of the East, who rushed to Kjansas to enlist in
the army of wheat harvesters. Those w ho have par
ents have by this time returned to their homes through
the kindly assistance of immediate remittances. The
rest, it is said, are either walking out of Kansas, as
sisted by occasional rides upon nocturnal freight train,
or selling books to acquire funds to transport them to
the East. The Newark News rejoices to know that
these young men havo learned in a week to differen
tiate between a rowing-shell and a Kansas reajnr.
They havo discovered the difference between a foot
ball field and a wheat-field. Their outlook upon ath
letics has Wen wonderfully widened, and their grasp
of the exact relation Wtween Kansas labor and Kan
sas oratory is at last perfect. In addition to this,
their walk home will give them striking conceptions
of the real magnitude of their native land, and enable
them to plunge into their studies this fall with unac
customed zest. Most of them, toe, having now had a
little try at the methods whereby their papas accumu
lated fortunes, will be more economical in the future,
which is something to be greatly desired. Tho Gal
veston News adds: "Nobody is astonished to find that
the college athletics tired and sickened of the wheat-
field before the morning and the evening of the first
day. There was little money in it, no adventure, no
applause, no glory. Such is the monotonous and tire-
some round ot tne wage-earner on me inrm. a college
man spends for luxuries and decoration alone a week's
wages in a single day. The stringent economy of it
is entirely too much for him, anil when it conies to the
hard work in the sun, he will do almost anything else,
iucluding suicide, before he will adhere to it."
STILL THEY COME.
The fluctuations in the tide of immigration into this
country furnish a very fair index of its material con
dition. When times are good, immigrants pour in(
and judged by this standard this country is now en
joying an unprecedented era of piosperity. During
the year ending June 30th, the number of immigrants
was 857,046 a number considerably greater than
during any previous year. The immigration during
1902 was abut 200,000 less than this, and the indica
tions point to a further increase during the current
year, lne number ot immigrants nnciuaies irom
month to month, July and August being months of
small immigration. Nevertheless, a comparison with
the corresponding months of last year shows tho heavy
increase in those now coming. On the basis of each
00 arriving during the corresponding months of last
year, the figures for this year would be March,
April, 132; May, 128; June, 130; July, 133. During
the five months the actual increase was 115,383, or
more than one-half of the total increase for the fiscal
year 1902-3. In the quality of the immigrants, there
is no cause for reassurance. The hardy, industrious
races of Northern Europe are coming in decreased
proportion; the undesirable races of Southern .and
Eastern Europe are, coming in large numbers. From
Austria-Hungary, Italy, and Russia 43,:19 immi
grants came last year, an increase of 9,885 over 1902,
the greatest increase Wing from Austria-Hungary,
while there was a decrease of C30 from Italy. Argonaut.
