or for less worthy reasons. And by offering
employment to all, at least sufficient to insure a
living no man could give excuses for his idle
ness and all such could and would be made to
earn their food and shelter. Most idle men do
not enjoy their position, neither do they want
charity. They want to help themselves but
they want the chance. That must be given

county has been sub-
TH A T IS R A P ID L Y jected to an unusual
BECOMING CRITICAL experience the like of
which it has never en
countered before, although we are told of its
commonness in the great cities. We speak of
an organized demonstration of an army of desti
tute, hungry men, strong men who claim they
cannot get employment and who demand the
necessities of existance. We have seen a band
of 100, not so very large when it is compared to
the total of several million idle men in America
at this hour. Only one band of tens of thous
ands like them,that is if all the idle men were
Why are these men out of work and with
out the means of purchasing a living? They
may have squandered their summer wages, they
may refuse some conditions of possible employ
ment they may not have the intelligence of fore
sight to provide for the future, they may be un
reasonable in their demands; yet to so condemn
them neither betters their condition nor solves
the problem of employment and unemployment
in America today.
The labor situation is not
A PROBLEM much longer to be ignored.
1 0 B E SOLVED Something must be done. If
the people as & nation do not
make provision for the successful handling of
this problem, present conditions point to a series
crisis that will be no joking matter.
It is not a problem for one
A PRACTICAL city, neither for one state;
SOLUTION but for the entire nation. So
considered a great deal can
be done to eliminate the present unsatisfactory
conditions. In the summer there is work in
the harvest fields, there is work on big con
struction enterprises and in many other lines
that the winter season does not offer. How
ever if the federal bureau of labor conducted a
gigantic government employment bereau ?>d-
justing road work and other employment so as
to furnish work to all who need it at the time
when no other work was to be found, and keep
ing in touch with all employers everywhere so
as to know the actual demand of labor, it would
be in a position to intelligently judge whether
men are idle from lack of a chance to work
“ A representative of all the people in Forest
Grove and Washington county” is the slogan
of the P ress , and in as far as it is possible to
do so it lives up to that standard. However it
is only with the realization that the P ress is
the Peoples paper, and as such you make free
use of its columns will it be able to represent
all of you. 1914 is to be a political year. Many
issues and many more candidates will be before
the people. The P ress has no intention of doing
any balancing acts on the fence of indicision;
but will remain absoutely independent favoring
what and whom it believes will be best for the
the g r e a t e s t good of the people. If its
policies do not agree with yours do not hesitate
to express your views by an article to the edi
tor. The columns of this paper are always open
to all sides of any question and all articles that
refrain from slander are always welcome.
In behalf of the citizens of Forest
M A N Y Grove the P ress wishes to thank
TH ANKS the good people of Hillsboro for
their generous attitude expressed
b v their contribution toward the caring of the
company of “ unemployed” that recently
marched through the county of which that set
tlement claims to be the governmental seat.
Modest to the degree that they refused the
least attention for that army our neighbors
“soldiered” them with all possible dispatch to
ward this city, in order that we might have the
honor and pleasure of as an extended a visit as
possible. We greatly appreciate their kind con-
siderance of our welfare by our related towns
men and wish to assure that honor is due to
Sheriff Reeves, Mayor Sanford and others who
had the situation in charge, for the sensible way
in which they handled it.
