U-'a convocation unusually well at
Cd for the email amount of ad
vertising that had been possiblo to
give It, Mayor Love yesterday morn
ing discussed the question of "Social
Responsibility." Mr Love is a man
widely read and Is primarily a thinker
and thus advanced several ideas that
aro as yet not generally adopted. He
discussed at considerable length the
question of responsibility for the prop
er ubo of wealth on the part of the
men who possessed It and also dis
cussed tho ethical value of wealth. Ho
spoke in part as follows:
"I am very glad to come here today
to say what I have to say for I feel
that this is the place to discuss It be
cause of the fact that the influence of
it will be carried farther than in any
other audience. At this time wo are
called upon to contend against evils
In society, but they are for the most
part hidden evils. There are- great
evils existent today in respect to like
earning of wealth. An evil exists
when a dollar comes to a man who haB
done nothing to earn that dollar. The
only right principle for labor , and
wealth Is reward for service, and earn
ings 'in any other way are illegitimate
The World's Work.
There is a certain amount of labor
required for every living person, and
the aggregate Is known as the "world's
work," Tho man of wealth who does
nothing as his Bhare of this labor Is
a parasite just as truly as tho tramp,
who does nothing for any monoy ho
may receive Bccrubo a man pays for
labor done It does not necessarily fol
low that ho pays for sorvlct becnuso
such labor may have, been spent un
necessarily and Is therpf6fo wasted,
A man may And mpnCy and spend It
so does a traran: Now. what is tho
dlfforencejjotwoen them? Yet Boclety
honorsono and condomus the other.
"Tho man of wealth has no fight
to do an act differently than other
men. Neither tho president or any
other public ofllclnl has any right to
onjoy or seek to gain what tho humbl
est laborer may not enjoy. Tho hold
ing of wealth Bhould bo treated as a
public office It should 4o considered
a public responsibility, held In trust,
and great care exercised in Its Use.
There is no harm in collecting rents
from the tenant unless undue advan
tage bo taken of it.
No Benefit to Society.
"Is it a benefit to Boclety to live ex
pensively? It is true that this may
produce a demand for labor, but it is.
really a waste both of labor and of
monpy becauso tho same labor and
capital could bo used advantageously
eslowhere in tho production of need
ful things rathor than luxury.
"When men of wealth surround
themselves with many servants thoy
must have their quota of labor dono
for them by some one else, thereby
requiring some one to do two men's
"Public office was once thought to
bo a private opportunity. Wealth no
more than public office 1b a thing of
this kind. Tho evil of wealth is that
it stimulates waste and requires use
less labor. It has, been calculated that
all tho work required for society could
be done by every man working three
hours a day. Tho foundation of sci
ence and art depends upon labor. Tho
body and mind are benefited by labor.
Man owes a duty to society. This
duty is to perform the labor that so
ciety demands of every man and not
require anyone to do it for him. Every
one should do his share of the neces
sary labor. It only Is the foundatipn
of science and art, and the correct
basis of man's relationship."
