For governor of Pennsylvania, on the
Issue of nn open Held mid fair play,
JOHN P. ELKIN, of Indiana,
subject to the will of the Republican
Timely Counsel.
lIIE Olyphant Record stiongly
advlsesjagalnst the proposed
Incursion of the Central
' Labor union Into politics on
a separate labor party basis. It says:
"One of U10 most dangerous tenden
cies In u country like ours is the effort
to divide the population Into classes.
Our government in its entire makeup
Is hostile to such nn Idea. Caste dis
tinction cunnot prevail here success
fully and it would bo a very sorry diy
tor the country if It over should.
The wage-earner today is often the
employer and capitalist of tomorrow,
and every ambitious toller should see
in every attempt to divide our popu
lation into classes a menace to his
hopes and to his liberty. Simply on
this ground alone the launching of
such a political enterprise should be
put out of mind. Better go slow
gentlemen. But every man who knows
the history of trades unionism, nnd
who honestly deslies the success of
such organizations will not be In :i
huiry to start a labor party In this
valley. This is not a new venture.
It has been tiled before, and has al
ways resulted disastrously to the
unions. Scrjnton has had enough ex
perience In this line to cause the
older and wiser heads to doubt the
wisdom of trying It again. U is not
necessary to go Into particulars. They
are really too sad a feature of our
history to be brought for waul except
upon the greatest necessity. The men
v,ho sought to do these things years
ngo have leceived the punishment for
their notions; but the greatest suffer
ing came to the organizations. Kvery
labor movement that has gone Into
politics wrecked itelf and brought loss
to the unions."
If there were a leal necessity for a
labor third party, the formation of
one would constitute u public service.
Hut recognition of just labor claims
is easily secured from the existing
parties, thus obviating the need of
another party. If it veie desired to
uisrupi me labor movement in this
region no better way could be selected
than to encourage the movement for a
labor party.
It was a foregone conclusion when
K. L. Fuller started to get control of
the Western Maryland rallioad that
he would get It. It Is a way he has.
Figures Worthy of Study.
OJIE Interesting' deductions ure
drawn by Bradstreet's from
the recent report of the com
missioner of labor dealing with
the statistics of strikes and lockouts.
First and chief Is that the strike as n
weapon ot otfense by the employe is at
best a dangerous one, costly to the em
ployer, it is true, In many instances, but
infinitely more costly, to the employe,
not only because of the fact that sta
tistics show that the employe In the
mass loses two dollars to the employ
er's one. Another conclusion Is that the
risk of friction, in other'words, the dan
ger of strikes occutrliig, seems to In-
oiease us the number of hands em
ployed In an Industry Increases. That
there may be some connection between
the character of the men employed as
legards intelligence and the tendency
to strike also is brought to mind when
it Is Iearnvd that the, coal and coke In
dustries are, basing the reasoning on
twenty yenis" experience, most liable to
strikes. The building trades, metal In
dustries and transportation employes
nro next most commonly alfeoted.
Males, of coutse, largely exceed females
in "industrial occupations, and it Is no
surprise to leant that !)0 per cent, of
all strlkeis In the past twenty yeats
liavo been mules, while only 10 pur cent,
have been females. It Is to be noted,
however, that Industries employing
largo proportions of employes suffer
from strikes to a great degree. For
instance, fully ouo-half of the strikers
in the cotton, wonfen and silk goods In
dustries have been females and 0110
tltlrjl, tq tNYo-lifths of tho clothing, car
pcH, 'paper, rope, rubber and tobacco
vworTteis weie women,
Ifls shown by the teport that
employee were thrown out or employ
niftU'Tiy tho "strikes and lockouts of
thj'past twenty years, M per cent, by
tllV'TIi?!'.. ("id the. loss In wages by
euYployes In that timo was upward of
tfdfi.'OOtf.OOd. In addition, tho stilkera, or
thope locked out, obtained nearly $20,
009,000 from other organizations, which
tva's presumably used in supporting the
strikers. Tho loss or employora by the
itrjkes and lockouts was over $112,000,
)ou;t so that tho troubles may be said
to have been twite us costly to the op.
tltlvvs us to the employers. I'epn-
Senator Bevcrldge's Speech.
UK Ol'UNTNCl note of the Re
publican iintiimnt campaign
. M of 1002 was sounded at In
dianapolis "Wednesday In a
speech of great power by Senator Uev
erldge, the gi eater part of which was
devoted to n consldeiallon of the legis
lative problems growing out of what
mo popularly called "trusts"; In re
ality, combinations of capital mid en
terprise for works piiinmlly or inci
dentally or public benellt. The senator
presented Jlguies in some detail and
with exceptional skill to prove that
whatever evils may come to pass
through abuse of power by those man
aging these large lncoiporatlons, they
are far outweighed by the public ad
vantages. To illustrate;
