months and that ths day will be celebrated
with enthusiasm. There have been fewer
labor controversies than usual, only four
serious strikes baring been recorded dur

arise between capital and labor have been
settled by arbitration.
The general situation throughout the
country Is good from a labor standpoint.
Wages, according to reports In th hands
of the federal bureau of labor, were never
so high In this country as now, nor were
there ever so many men at work. Hours
have shortened rather than lengthened, and
the remuneration, according to government
experts, hss generally kept pace with the
Increased cost of living.
