CeraMlity of' Leprosy. '
Uana, of Eambarg. like many oth
er coaspicaoas dermatologists, Is of
the opakm that there is a possibility
of 'curing leprosy. In his report read
before the International Medical con
grass at Lisbon he states that he has
successful ia attacldag cutane-

during a period of 22 years. His suf
jferers wet. private patients, more or.
teas well do. all leading a useful
life' and wishing most emphatically to
be cured so that they - could again
take ap their . several occupations.'
This fact la importaat,- Unna thinks.
in contrast to .what Is observed In the
'patients of leper hospitals, for ex
ample. In Norway, who are very poor

roundings, shunned by their, neigh

'As to the English, however, the

Open Shop Policy
Clearly and dlstincUy,
once 'arid for
ill, I desire to reaffirm my unalter
able opposition to the open shop! Its
tendency, as all who have studied the
problem can plainly see, is to lower
wages and lengthen hours. For ftis
own. protection, the workingman must
join hands with his fellow worker and
all stand together firm and steadfast
in a common cause.
-The open shop means disunion, dis
organization arid defeat' Too much
attention cannot be paid to It aa' It is
a factor In our economical system
which must be brought out plainly to
the attention of the workingmen.
Their homes and their means of earn
ing a livelihood are at stake.
Anything which win Interfere with
the good work now being carried on by
the labor unions Is deleterious to the
best Interests of the community. 'In
the past two or three years wages of
workingmen were, much higher than
before. Their condition has been Im
proved and when you improve the con
dition of the wage earners of a com
munity you begin at the foundation:
for Improving the conditions of that
entire community. It can safely be
stated1 that labor . ia the basis of a
country's greatness and', the wage
earner Is' .the bulwark of her advance
ment and her prosperity. The-only
logical: conclusion - is that anything
which tends to benefit the wage' earner
tends to benefit all the people.' Re
member, the wage earning class is
also the distributing class. - The more
money a man on small salary has' to
spend the more he will spend. On the
other' hand, those with large fortunes
.spend- about the same each year. ' In
this 'way the union promotes a great
er distribution of coin which results
to the satisfaction. of alL '
The working man. is a medium of
circulation. With him the luxuries of
yesterday have become the necessities
of to-day. His union aids him In ob
taining these luxuries. Standing alone
'or on the open shop basis he must
auction off his skill, his brain and his
muscle to' the highest bidder. With
.his union there is a minimum set and
he will not work below it This mini
mum Is a living wage, regulated to
provide a maa with the common neces
sities. of life and some of its luxuries.
2 The open shop is its' direct antl
thesis. They are as widely separated
as .the poles. . There is one remedy
ito break down the open shop-the co-operative
store win do it These co
operative stores have' been established
extensively throughout the eaast, and
they are gradually growing .in strength
and favor. ".'
. Let the workingmen, instead of Idly
'talking, -open a rival shop, no matter
what the business of the concern, may
-be, make It more attractive, each '.take
a little 'stock in the concern, and see
what will happen to the establishment
I which locked them out
. Strikes are .always to be deplored'
and are always expensive. . The money
spent' in strike-benefits win' frequent
ly pay for the opening of a rival estab
lishment, which win put the other man
out of business quicker .than anytfitagf
else and will also provide employment
for many men. .
I have repeatedly, said, and I have
always ' consistently endeavored' to
Uye'up-to the declaration, that capital
aad labor, employer .-and- employe,
should - have, equal - consideration aad
equal- protection; that capital ' must
have safe .aad steady Investment In
order that labor may have constant
and .remuaeratlve employment; that
the Interests of both are for a con
servative and 'frieadly. recognition by
each of. the rights. of the other, and
under an circumstances and condi
tions I propose to abide-and to ef
fectuate these ideas.:."

End of Unworn
For the peat year we have
much of the opea shop policy oa
the part ef employers. The employer
In setting forth his reasoas for in
auguratiag the so-called opea shop at
tempta to convey, the idea that the
unions am eadeavbriag to control and
dictate the policy by whjch the em
ployers' ahall operate iieir x various
factories and workshops.
' The reason given by employers may
be accepted by the ordiaary thiaklag
man, but those who have givea seri
ous coaalderatioa to the conditions
under which working mea and .women
are employed fully realise that the
reasons set forth by the employers for
the inauguratloa of the open ahop are
absolutely absurd and ridiculous. The
nigger ia the woodpile la the employer
hopes by hia ao-caUed open ahop policy
to break up the organizations of labor
so. that he would be fancy free to in
augurate any condition of employment
most pleasing to himself,, regardless
of the wishes or desires of the wealth
producers of our country.
The position of the employer be
comes stiU more ridiculous when the
represeatativea 'of am association of
employers announces that the asso
ciation represented by him proposes
to inaugurate the open ahop policy,
and In future win refuse to meet the
representatives of organized labor or
treat with the employes as organized
wage workers; thus the very men
who axe attempting to inaugurate the
open ahop are denying to their em
ployes the same right they have takea
to themselves of forming an associa
tion, whether the association be called
a labor organization or an employers
The employers associations through
put North America have attempted to
induce their employes to form various,
kinds, of associations among, them
selves and they (the employers) be
come part of such associationa with, a
view to dictating wbatlinea ahan he
followed aad outlining the policy, so
that the so-called association shall be
directly under the control' of the em
ployer. All the increases, all the reductions
in the hours of labor, all the protection
given to women arid children in fac
tories, all the legislation inaugurated
in .the varoius statea and the national
government looking toward the pro
tection of wage workers, has beea
brought about either directly or ia
directly, by the. trade unions of North
America, and no matter what attempts
may be made by the employer to in
augurate his so-called open shop pol
icy, --no matter -what success he may
temporarily 'meet with in .this direc
tion, organized labor la .going to pro
ceed practically la the same lines ia
its endeavor to sectWatiU further im
