On the first Monday in September
in each year the hosts of labor cele
brate their annual holiday, dedi
cated to those who toil. While prim
arily by organized labor, the festivi
ties are participated in largely by
the general public and business is

Labor Day was first recognized by
Congress in 1894, when an act was
passed making it a holiday for the
District of Columbia and . for all
Federal establishments throughout
the United States.
Prior to that time it had been
made a legal holiday in 27 states
and one territory and it is now so
recognized in all the states except
Alabama and Wyoming, and even in
these it is celebrated quite generally.
The day is also observed in Canada.
One of the encouraging signs of
the times is the better relations be
tween capital and labor which have
been developed during the past few
years. These two great forces in
our national life are coming more
and more to realize that the interests
of both are better promoted through
cooperation than through antagon
ism. American labor is the most pro
ductive in the world, as well as the
best paid and best protected. Em
ployers and the public have learned
that prosperity for the workman con
tributes to the prosperity to all.
The high achievements of those
who perform the nation's everyday
tasks are fittingly commemorated on

of the association.
