tributed oa Saturday last by Mr. FreuU
S. Gratke, at the session of the Aa
toria Woraaa'a Club. It wa not pot
aJM to publish it yesterday owing to

"Haa th Urnst of women in the
fndustrial world deprived men of their
ymitiona? This is the question that
to been given me to discus wub yon
' "In view of the great army of unem
ployed men there may semi, at fir-t
glance, some truth in the ttatement
that women wage-earners havs driven
the men from the field. The army of
ta unemployed is one of the problem
before tbe American people today, but
Eke all great problem that aie con
fronting the nation, the root of it
canse lie in such a complication if
condition that it i impossible to lay
One's Inger on any one thing and sty
this is the trouble.'
Just a there are many cane that
lave led women into the indutiial
warld. to are there many reasons for
the eonditons which there confront "oer.
The accusation that women i the direct
a use of the poor wages of today, ami
the scarcity -of position, i made by
yery superncial observer ; and before
we dUcuta what has been the effect she
bat had upon the labor question it will
be well to take a,gtce at a fcw'iof
the condition, whkh. w? find in our in
dustrial world" Let me repeat the
words 'a few, for it is not within the
scope of a short paper tm-h as tbi. to
do more than touch lightly upon two, or
three of tbe mftBy-phases this question
presents for our", ttiadderatioii.
"The wonderful improvement in the
last - SO year in machinery ha had
wore than one effect upon the labor
question. That in so many field one
van can do tbe work that formerly
Mqnired ix, is the complaint inot

can on wan, today, accomplisb the
work of six men, but so yery rapid has
been the machine 't output of tut good

bwbmi couatry" and our great forrin
tmde, -the supply in many cae so far
outruna the demand that many a manu
facturer shuts down bis factory entire
ly, or also runs it at only balf ita ca
pacity. Thi U on of th great causes

"Then, just as tbe perfected machioea
have In the citiea used on maa butead
of six, so alo on tba farm bare lent
men been' needed; that and the grow
ing ditate of the Americaa youth for
rural life, hat caused thousand to flock
from the country to our already over
crowd -d cities and there enter into
competition for poHitions. Nine time
out of ten, tola, the country lad will
work for smaller wages than hi city
brother, and the eompetetiim is keen.
"To thee two omditkui add th
enormous vearly increase in our popu
lation through immigration (an immi
gration of hard working, frugal men and
women), and we have enough cauoes
for the scarcity of work, without laying
upon the shoulders of women the
blame of robbing men of their placet!
Poor woman! She ha bad to rear
from time immemorial the iponiil
ty of nil the evils our human institu
tion are heir to.
"lnatrad of women taking the por
tion away from men. ninety per cent
of the women who work art doing so
because of tbe neglect of tome man to
do hit nrt, or because there i no man
in her family to awuine tbe role of
bread-winner. It i not n question of
whether or not women should, in the
opinion of men, hold thi or that por
tionthe ability and right to work aod
be self-tupporting is not the preroga
tive of sex. nor would tbe trouble in
the labor world be solved If women
were forced out of their prenent posi
tion in favor of men, a ome of our
would-be reformer U)get. Kx-I'rei-dent
Cleveland, for example, declare
that all the women hould marry and
tay home. Very wie of the ex-Prenl-
dent to be mire, but as a great per cent
of the wage-earning women are mar
ried, and find that they are better able
than their hu-band to support their
families, hi. proponed remedy eem
more than abotird.
""That women in many ca;- are prov
ing the superior of men i one reason
he i preferred. Xaturaly she i not
given the po-ition becue her em
ployer i chivalront (in buiine. there
is no sentiment), nor because she will
work for less, wage as been often stat
ed. In some few case perhaps, both
the a-sertions may lie true, but the
main rea-on women find it eaicr than
men to get woik is simply became as a
rule (liey are more dependable. Where
ever men are the superiors of women
they hold the positions. There i, how
ever, no line of work that has not more
applicants than there are positions to
b filled, and the fact that this Is true
of thoe positions where only women
are the applicants, prove that she ha
the same condition Wore her as man.
That tliee very conditions are far from
ideal, that they are in many intanc,-s
even appalling, is the reason that the
attention of many of our ablest men it
being turned to tbe solving of these
"H fart strikes the observer very
forcibly in the face of the great num
ber of unemployed: that Is, that there
i not an institution in th country to
day, that is not eagerly seeking for
competent help. Trained and skilled.
labor ha never had any difficulty in
procuring and keeping good positions.
It is the untrained, mediocre class of
lalsir that is overcrowding the market.
Women is today a recognized factor in
the industrial world and hold her posi
tion therein without any regard what
ever to her sex. It therefore behoove
men, instead of lamenting that women
hare snatched from them the prized
position, , to prepare themselves more
"ame-tly for the place tbey with to

shows that there are good position
waiting. A i to often' said, there i
still room at the top for either men or
women, whichever prove mot capable.
"There are, aa 1 said before, many
other phaee of this problem, but vea
thi short survey It rnuugh to thow
that all the trouble of the labor quet
Urn and the sennit y of work for tbe
masse, cannot lie ascribed to woman's
taking her share of the world' work.'

The Aotorian Is ia receipt of a let

now en route to Southern California
on tht excursion aent out Saturday
evening from Portland under the au
spice of tbettregoaDevelopuient League
in which be says that at the Horticul

urday at the league meeting, "Columbia
county took the priie on 'Northern
Spy aad 'Jonathan" apples"-, and con
tinuing, be argue that the fa rater of
Clatsop should get in Una on th apple
question aad do a much or better than
her sitter county 1 that there are
no worm in Clatsop county to contend
with, and that some kinds of her ap
ple seem to do well aad are good keep

II also urgi-a the attention and pre-
tnce of all Clatsop farmer to. and at.
the coming institute to be held in thi
city in March next in thia behalf, a
well a other matter of local import
ance. He reports all section of the State
represented at th league, tad each and
all shouting the prosperity and general
superiority of hi particular section of
the country, over all other sections.
And while he is writing, he drops an
other vital hint for th progressiva
people of this city and county, when he
says, thst a well known man from th
East, at present in Portland, bad told
him that 80.000 ton of pig-iron were
to be demanded during the year, a
well at 600,000 tons of structural Iron
would be needed, and he did not doubt
if the btaek aod deposits were prop
erly exploited, any amount of Eastern
capital could be induced to invest in
tba local plants for ita production."
Tbesa ara thing worth thinking
about and attending to, and the man
who suggested them will take a definite
hand in the work just a soon as ha re
