likely that those lily white hands which pen the verbal flowers
that embellish the pages o f that magazine have ever been soiled by
contact with real labor. That versatile brain o f his has never permitted
its owner to absorb anything o f the problems o f the working man from
actual contact with those problems.
These are the only conclusions that can be drawn from the ignorance
displayed in a discussion o f organized labor by The Spectator.
Never having been a laboring man, never having had to wash the
grim e from his hands, never having learned anything first hand o f the
trials of the worker, it is no wonder that the editor of The Spectator
makes himself ridiculous when he undertakes to dissertate upon the
beauties o f the open shop for labor and the closed shop for capital.
Alw ays being an employer and never an employe, his vision is so
limited that he can not see why a laborer should have any rights
beyond those capital is willing to grant.
I f all capital were like that
directing The Spectator, those rights would be mighty few.
The Spectator would drive union labor from Portland; it would
say to the world, ‘ ‘ N o union labor employed here; capital here is
supreme. W e do not want the working man; it takes capital to build
