f ; LABOR'S ANNtfAIf HOLIDAY."
OpHIS-lS THE DAY when- the sons of toil, the
- I many manual worker in' a multitude of voca
. " ' , tions and avenues of labor take their annual
i formal holiday, eniov themselves variously in a ' few
Ibtitt hours of vacation and consider to tome extent and
,., ' from various ' points of .view their condition and .pros
"i oeets. actual and relative, as laborers, as ware-earners.
j At times and 'places Laborday has been- tfne of
Tstrife and passion 'and violence, but in most, places in
;.. .. - Uhisosuntry it is now, as here, merely a peaceful, pleas-
ant holiday, aevotea. tn part xo a conswermon oi i
. . to recreation and innocent amusements common tc all
''Miolidays. Labor in this country may not get quite its
1 4 share of products and. profits; some percentage that
' rightfully belongs to it is in many instances jvithheld
"i'l ' l'or diverted, as in the. case "of protected trusts that are
- piling up millions; but all things considered labor in
!r'-r"':thi.lnd;i' tolerably . well off far better off ' than in
.i I " any country in the world. -. - f ' i ' . . . :'
' ;;: While; it is well for workingmen to recognize and
appreciate this fact, ; and to rejoice that they, are as
- .'.'well off as they are, it is their privilege also, iknot
'their duty, 'to strive in all lawful, reasonable ways to
t - - fDetter theiit condition, to. demand for , themselves their
: '. ! fair and proper share, to uphold and maintain the dig
'.'J . "nity of their position and,vocation in Hie world -for it
Zi i entitled to as much Tespcct a an jr ?oth er. rT" .
The workingtnaV should be, as he usually is, a fam-
' ily man: . He should strive to obtain, and should under
fiirly favorable circumstances be able to obtain, a home
'",'' of his own. He should be an intelligent, reading man
. . ; and should have sufficient leisure to fee so. He should
- be able to , send this .children to school,, dressing and
':r.'feedingthem'com'f6rtably..:.'And if provident dtfring his
v years of toil he should be able to lay up something to
l.vkeep himself, and perhaps some dependent upon him yet,
r from want in his old age. To do all this he needs higher
.'wages than are paid in any other country. -1 The rfaith
ful, efficient workingman ought to be able to 'earn enough
. to do all this, and in these "good times'1 he should have
v his full share." J No sort 6f worker deserves it better. .
The intelligent workingman ought to take a lively,
vv conscientious interest In " politics, and be ready at all
, times to throw his vote' and influence on the side of
" honesty, competence and cleanliness in public office, for
the grafters and.roguet who get into office injure him
- ' ttjore than they do tlie capitalist or the land owner.
In brief, the 'average workingman should be, as he in
; fact usually is, a good, all around citizen, standing up
- for his rights and watchful of his interests, yet quiet,
' reasonable and observant pf the laws. -,.
L Wi think that-tlic Milt hetureen rinttal 'and 1hnr i
" gradually subsiding; that there will in future be more
.reason, more toleration, more liberality on both sides than
.in the past This may.be too optimistic a. view, but
. surely,' as the world becomes moire enlightened it should
" become clearer to both sides that such ' contests jire
- .wholly harmful and in many instances fairly barbarous.
."We hope the time is rapidly approaching when capital
, - will not dare, even if it had the power, to oppress labor,
'and when labor will hold no unreasonable grudge against
. capital 'activelyaemployed. : - r
Outside',itherealni p(.. thics--and 'yet. closely,. Ijnked
. therewith, too the greatest thing in the land is industry,
that operates by two mighty arms, laborrand capital, and
ieither pf these without the other can" accomplish much.
Capital without labor is helpless, an inert, almost-des-
picable thing; but labor unemployed by capital, whilp
- not so helpless, is a weakling, crawling tojts goal at a
lanairs pace.1 ' j

ORTLAND was a long time getting a fireboat, but
' it has been more than once demonstrated that
it was a very irood investment. . It does not pre
vent fires from .being purposely or accidentally started
alongthe waterfront, nor can it prevent auch fires from
destroying much property before they can te subdued,
but it can and on several .occasions has helped' very
much -to save endangered property and to check and
extinguish the' destroying flames. This was the case in
the fires of last Saturday when, although much.vatuable
property was destroyed, much, was saved by the efficient
service of the fireboat.".'""".' 'A ," i ' : 7 .
Considering. the, length of our waterfront, the rapid
growth of the city, the fact that the river muSt.be lined
almost " continuously : for several mites with dock!,
wharves, warehouses and mills, constantly increasing in
number, might it not be well to build another fireboat,
so that one could be kept stationed toward one end of
the harbor and the; other near the other end, both-4.
respond in case of a central or any extensive fire? The
one fireboat has done good work; two would be a double
protection of waterfront property, and the time is not
distant, if it has not already arrived, when another
fireboat would be a. good investment.

I HE MAYOR and hia executive board look' a very

, upon grounds of public policy to eliminate the
warrant shark frori the conspicuous place he has so long
occupied jn the city's affairs.) Warrant-shaving-has long
constituted one of the very worst grafts in the city. ; The
warrant-shaver, through the representation of his power
ful influence at headquarters, which in the past" he has
been able to. show," has forced many classes of the city
employes, including not a few who were not in need of
funds, to go to him to discount their pay warrants at
the rate of 10per cent a month. When it wasfteces
sary the warrant-shaver could, show that he had a Tull
strong enough to make itself effective! felt Many of
the employes have drawn their pay month by month

that have become glaringly apparent.

The efficacy of th cure 1 all the
more astonishing on account of its sim

means th lesions of th lungs continue.
This is not the ease whare th new
