HONG KONG KOLUM
WHEN James ,L I J ill remarked that the United States
needed half a inilioii or so of Chinese, because the
Chinamen has solved the problem of living on 10 or 12
cents a day, he undoubtedly aired the view of big business.
The promoters ol the movement to inculcate thrill, among
the masses doubtless also consider the Chinese standard
the ideal thrift standard.
The Mauley report which the Industrial relations com
mission has ordered submitted to congress, shows how the
United States is already on the way to the Chinese stand
ard. The following are taken from it as showing the con
ditions of labor and industry in America:
Of the millions and millions of workingmen in this
country, one-third are poverty-stricken.
Thirty-seven per cent of wives and mothers of work
ingmen are forced to do hard work themselves to help
keep the wolf from the door.
Five hundred dollars per year is the income of half of
the wage-earning fathers.
Less than $15 per week is the wages of two-thirds of
the adult male workers.

jiKiui'ial conditions are responsible lor our
Labor and living conditions in this country are such
today that immigrants only come from Ttaly, Russia, Austria-Hungary
mil other "backward" nations of Europe.
The progress and prosperity of a nation are measured
by the welfare of its people. With such economic condi
tions existing, with the poor becoming paupers and the
rich billionaires, the remedy offered by our savings bank
ers is the inculcation of thrift in a nation.where only thrift
enables half the people to exist now!
It is evident (hat before trying to regulate its neigh
bors or interferring in the quarrels of Europe, the United
States should set its own house in order. Instead of big
navies and standing armies, let us have social justice.
To establish it is a task that calls for all the wisdom and
statesmanship of the nation a work in which old world
diplomacy has miserably failed, a problem the new world
must work out for itself, for government should be some
thing more than a robber in time of peace and a murderer
in time of war, something more than an instrument to
exploit the many lor the lew.
