COOS BAY DAILY TIMES
Varihfield ... Oregon
A communication appears in an
other column on the editorial which
appeared In tho Times last Tuesday
entitled "The (Heathen Hindu." Tho
Writer seems to think that It is nec
essary to call attention again to cert
ain arguments which arc kept in
stock to use when occasion requires
against tho influx of Asiatics to take
the place of American common labor.
No question that the writer is cor
rect In many of his expressed views
and no question that a wise policy
would, under all circumstances, pre
vent the mild and submissive Hindu
from incurring tho displeasure of or
tlolng Injury to the man who, for
some reason, has a strenuous strug
gle for existence in this land of fi
nancial jugglers and providential
plenty. The writer of the communi
cation has missed his point. The
question of humanity is ono of sym
pathy and Its answer is one of uni
versal love. It was better, a thous
and times, for the Hindu to go else
where to earn his living, although
tinuscd and unoccupied wealth lies
all around us. It is not at all likely
that Americans will ever advocate
"the reception of Hindoos as laborers
"on American soil. But how should
the American prevent It? Shall ho
ose his temper and become a mur
derer? Shall he resort to' bruto
orce? Shall ho expel the Hindu
"with threats of violence? When the
American laborer turps brute, it is
"Jiurd to see where he Is to bo hon
ored any more than any other brute.
"He should organlzo and firmly, and
With tho dignity which becomes an
American laborer Insist that the
"hlgli economic standard of American
3aboT be not reduced by the intro
duction of Hindu laborers or a Hin
But while we recognize the policy
of keeping the Hindu out of America,
"we must still claim tho right to feel
liurnan sympathy for him and his
also. Tho condition of India is not
such as to produce Joy even In tho
acnlnds of those who may not wish to
have America continue its functions
sis "an asylum for the oppressed of
all nations." A few tears shed with
toeart felt emotion over millions of
India's famine victims and over the
suffering of 250,000,000 subjects of
a British omporVir, will not lessen tho
pride felt In tho stability of strength
of tho American laborer. Sympathy
extended to men who are struggling
to get happiness somewhere In this
life, but whoso native land is an
nually drnined of its substance, to
"maintain tho splendor and warlike
spirit of tho most christian nation,
will not necessarily mean that Ameri
ca shall displace its sturdy men of
Tnusclo by opening its arms to all
t;ho wrecks of English oppression.
It is a long tlistanco from tho Ameri
can laborer's economic condition to
tho American laborer's economic sal
vation. Ho has enough to ovcrcomo
In order to reach his goal. Ho has
-a thousand temptations to brutalize
his manhood and whosoever preaches
that ho, who excels in power all
other laborers on earth becauso he
has tho ballot, shall meet and slay
the gontlo minded, well intonded
ind harmless Hindu, who has been
misled by deception to seek theso
.shores, is a preacher of unpardon
able iniquity. Tho Hindu must
"work out his own economic salvation
4n India. Ho has two hundred and
rty million follow sufferers. In
thno they will seo that their suf
fering is duo largely to tho fact that
they do not know how to cooperate.
The American laborer may also real
3zo that he too must cooperato and
that ho can accomplish moro by
Qcmrning how to uso his power Intel
SOgently than by demonstrations of
brute force or unreasoning passion.
But let it bo said, that tho writer' of
this article does not believe that tho
advocates of mob violence aro at all
numerous In tho ranks of honest
labor. Let It also bo said that tho
heart which will not sympathize with
human misfortune in any form, is
not to bo trusted in any profession
of sympathy for tho cause of labor
In India or America.
The Secretary of tho Treasury pro
poses to issue ?50,000,000 in Panama
canal bonds and $100,000,000 in
treasury certificates, with a view of
tempting the people who havo hoard
ed their gold to turn their gold into
the government for tho securities
mentioned. No doubt tho move will
be successful. It is plain and grati
fying that whatever doubt Ameri
cans may have as to tho stability of
commercial nature, they have abso
luto confidence in their government.
They believe that whatever tho na
tional government stands back of Is
good. They have the same confi
dence also In state governments and
their stability. There Is not today
ono state, north, east, south or west,
whose credit is not perfect. No state
bond issued since the war by compe
tent authority and within the powers
of that state, is discredited.
It may be expected that tho govern
ment issue of valuable securities will
overtake tho vanishing gold aad place
it at tho disposal of the government.
It may also be expected that funds
will be available to move the crops
and that when the crops aro sold,
millions will return to tho wast and
money will again be easy. But tho
indications are that the situation will
change rapidly. The New York stock
market is just now the busiest
place in America. Stocks went down
so low that the most penurious and
cautious Investor is secure in buy
ing. There is really no lack of con
fidence, only a fear that there aro
conspirators who design to play somo
trick. England knows that America
has all the necessaries of life in
abundance which Europe wants and
everybody knows that money must
come to the producing districts to
pay for such necessaries. It does not
seem possible that the dull times can
continue much longer or that tho
financial stress can endure. Tho
signs of returning prosperity aro all
