“ P op'-ed Out.
E d ito r :
Three years «go a blacksmith of Gales
Creek very carefully studied the problem
of keeping up with the hard times. He
lulked with friends aud finally u meet-
idg was called and it was decided to or*
ganize a labor exchange. Members
were enrolled aud five directors elected
with the promoter as president. It was
decided to go ahead and stnrt up a tan
nery and every other industrial enter
prise possible in order to do business
without paying tribute to the capitalist.
Labor Exchange checks were printed
which were to be used as a medium of
exchange. A tanner was hired and
everything went well for three months
when the man asked for his wages uud
theu there was trouble, but the man got
his wages theu all the same. The pro
moters found that the tannery would
not pay and as the work must be done
the president uud another director went
at it aloue for a time, but it did not seem
to suit their taste, so they sold out to
the secretary aud another member. And
after two years of fruititi! effort the en
tire business proved a bad failure.
After a time a cabinet maker, a man
of good principles, who was dissatisfied
with the outer world came along and
seeing the situation the tanunery was in
recommended a tanner who lived in
Southern Oregon. He was invited to
come and help on the increasing busi
ness. He was told that a cabinet shop,
wagon shop, blacksmith shop, machine
shop, harness and shoe shop would be
added to the business in a short order.
The letter concluded with these words:
" I f you are not doing well there you can
not do worse here so if you have any
sense come here." The tanner tried by
writing to satisfy himself that he would
be provided with a living and make a
little more, so he gave up his business,
sold every thing as best he could and
lull of faith and hope in the varnished
future he arrived at the tannery. First
of all he was asked to sign a certificate
not to demand cash for his labor but to
accept the product of equal value.
A little house was provided, some pro
vision brought in and he was advised
to make his future living out of the tan?
nery. The tannery itself was a surprise,
no tools, no material, no funds, but a
few loads of bark and every thing upside'
down. He went to work and soon
finished some leather. The customers
came but instead of paying for the work
presented accounts or checks that were
due. Thus it went on for eight months
and only a few dollars in money came
in. The tanner found himself caught in
a trap of adventurous enterprise. The
checks he received would not buy
bread and butter, and the officers de
clared themselves helpless. The tanner
was forced to sell all his small bclogings
even to his wife’s gold pen. His four
children were suffering for food and he
had nothing to live on. Now they have
moved to Forest Grove and moved into
Mr. Armstrong’s house and are willing
to do any kind of work that will bring
them an honest living. The man will dress
skins and furs and do any kind of such
work. The wife will wash and inend
clothing for men and women. She can
also teach macramè work.
The man worked at the tannery 193
days, and as there was no written agree
ment and the promises were not kept he
now demands $2.00 for each days work
and the suffering and abuse the family
has been subjected to. Now Mr.
Editor, my case is written out and I aak
as a favor that you publish it and also
the fact that we are in need and want to
work so as to earn a living.
