The proposition of the Fall River
i weavers to use their eflorts to assist
friendly manufacturers against those
whose aim In businesses to pay the
smallest possible wages, is unusual, but
It Is encouraging. The weavers have
come to learn that because a man Is an
employer, he Is not necessarily an
enemy. Tue labor unions have dono
much injustice in tho past by refusing
to believe that an employer may be
kindly disposed toward his men, but
is compelled by circumstances to insist
on measures that seem hard and unjust
to theemyloyes. On tho other hand,
there has been with the employer a
