ASTORIA, OREGON: SUNDAY .. OCTOKEK 7, 1SSS Pertinent Truths. There is in present session a senate committee on labor and ed ucation before whom lias appeared many individuals to testify con cerning those all important topics. A clergyman named Ileber New ton has thus far made what many people think are the most sensible remarks. Ho.- goes on to show that according .to the census of 1SS0 the average income of wage makers in this country was only S400. This is a-pittance not suf ficient to support a family. La bor is itself partly responsible. It is frequently inefficient, as every body finds who tries to employ those out of work. The laborer is not enough interested in his work. He is too apt to be thriftless and ignorant of that "economy which gets a dollars worth of value for every dollar. Too much money is wasted in drink. There is- a reckless increase of child ren. Strikes, justifiable when nec essary, are conducted at an enor mous loss and friction. Arbitra tion should be organized and re sorted to. Trades unions are jus tifiable and indispensable, but in their methods are often blind and stupid. Co-operations, if earnest ly developed, would be an efficient help. But if labor would better itself it must recognize its difficul ties and faults. The first step up ward is to face the facts. On the other hand, labor is not wholly responsible for its faults. Tenement houses and poor food account for much of the lack of energy. Since the disappearance of the apprentice system there has been a lack of training. Our common school system is develop ing the purely intellectual and bookish qualities of the mind at the expense of the powers of ob sevation and the discipline of oth er menial and physical forces. Ther.c should be less elaborate, more practical and usefnl studies. Superintendents and bosses, he said, come too much between em ployer and employed. Employers do not sufficiently identify the in terests of the employed with their own interests. "The house for each and all for the house," was an inscription "carved by a French firm over their factory door. In twenty-one years prices have increased over the incre:ise of wages. For this the tariff is partly responsible. So is il.e ir responsible taxation of great cor porations. Gambling in bread stuffs increases their price. Pat ents tax the people heavily, but inventors seldom reap the benefit. In Europe the impatience oi the luboriug men are tempting them to violence. There is the same tendency here. He would try to avert it by reclaiming all forfeited land grants, organizing colonies for the relief of crowded cities, reserve all mineral sources to be opened as public property, the proceeds to form a national edu cational fund, and the government ought to find a better way of rais ing money than by tariff. The palace, he thought, does more harm than the tenement house. "Laboring men feel that there is a wrong somewhere when Mr. Vanderbilt can build a palace, while they can only look at it, and go back to a home where Mr. Vanderbilt would not stable his horses. From this feelin comes revolution, and efforts to right wrongs may run into anarchy. Big men are alway the first to be struck in revolution. On the other hand, work'ingmen do not envy wealthy people who make a good use of their money. Peter Cooper might have built a palace and the people would not have lost regard for him. "There are more than enough churches m cities. They are not filled. In the churches enthusiasm for social reform has declined, and "ivorkingmen have naturally lost their interest in the church. The laborer feels, he don't know now or why. that thechurch has lost its interest in him, and he has been right. Poor people are kept away from church on account of the meanness of their clothing, and a quiet movement among church ro ing people has spruug up to wear the plainest of clothes to church." ItOKN.
