Returns as disclosed by the New
York Labor Bulletin from all labor
organizations In that state, numbering
nearly 2,500, show, for a total of 409,-
600 male members who had "name"
work during the months of July, Au
gust and September, 1910, average
earnings per member for the quarter
of $213. or $71 per month. This Is
not a bad average wage, and yet it is
$20 for the quarter below the sversge
for the same three months in 1909.
But, according to the report, the lower
average wage for the quarter was due
not to a lower rate of wage, for the
per dlena pay for that period in 1910
averaged $3.30, as compared with
$3.33 in 1909, but to a continued
period of Idleness of many workmen
laid oft or engaged In strikes. When
this Is tsken into consideration, to
gether with the close comparison of
wages for the two years, it 'is seen
that the rate of pay did, indeed, keep
Without going into the merits of
any labor dispute affecting this New
York situation, these figures furnish
another strong argument for some
solution of labor troubles better than
the strike. Working men earning
their livelihood by dally, or weekly or
monthly wages, should not haver to
resort to enforced idleness as a means
of carrying on a controversy with
their employers, nor should the em
ployers have to close down their busi
ness, paralyzing industry for the time
being, in order to adjust a private
dispute with their employes.
The strke Is not a success; It Is not
modern; it Is not American, yet it is
operative. Apparently in this coun
try, at least, no systematic steps are
being taken to do away with it. It
Involves tremendous economic waste.

The death at Lincoln General T.

Omaha. General Kelsey got bis mil

Thomas Wentworth Hlgglnson be
longed to two distinguished New
England coteries, that in literature,
which included Longfellow, W'hlttler,
Holmes and Lowell, and that in aboli
tion, which Included Garrison, Wen
dell Phillips, Edward Everett . Hale
and Mrs. Julia Ward Howe. . His
death at the ripe age of 87, removes
the last of these groups of great
patriots and1 men of letters. He sur
vived his era, though, like all of his
illustrious compeers, left an imprint
on the pages of his country's history.
which time will not efface.
Colonel Hlgglnson was a versatile
man and his eareer was varied. Grad
uated from Harvard at the early age
of 17, he taught for a time at the
Divinity sijl there and then, In
1847, entered the ministry of the Con
gregational church. His anti-slavery
views, however, did not coincide with
what his parishioners felt their pastor
should entertain, so he resigned his
charge and made an unsuccessful at
tempt to get to congress and, in 185S,
demltted the ministry. He soon be
came one of the foremost sntl
slavery agitators, touring the country
ss far west as Kansas in the interest
of human liberty. When the war
came on he enlisted and .rose to the
rank of colonel. After the war he de
voted himself to litersture and edu
cation, becoming the author of a his
tory of his country and other valuable
works, both in prose and poetry.
Improved Tariff Methods.
The Sixty-first congress, we believe,
did not hit the center of popular ap
proval when It refused to co-operate
with the president in making his
tariff commission plsn permanent snd
giving It the leeway that he asked for
it. The people, unless the ordinary
means of Interpreting their will have
misled ns, are tired of the old method
of tariff tinkering and demand a
better one. They are tired of having
the tariff made a foot ball of politi
cians to be kicked from one local goal
to another, also of steam-roller
tariffs. Congressman Knowland of
California is correct when he says in
a speech in congress:
I mistake the temper of the American
people If the day Is not rapidly approaching
when they wlU insistently demand that
more enlightened and scientific method be
adopted in dealing with this great queetlen
and a public sentiment national In cope.

"Too Darned Much Economy."
Congressman Rucker, the sage of
Keytesville, Mo., is a "plains, blunt
man," with a plain, blunt way of
putting things. He Is getting to be
somewhat of a thorn in the fleah to
his democratic brethren, whose party
plans he has unmasked more than
once this session. Colonel Rucker is
no stickler for style, neither in speech
nor in action. He has .a rather pic
turesque way of saying things and be
lieves that the language was made to
serve man, not to be served by man.
He says the democrats are attempting
'too darned much economy." 8o do
good many other people, but Con
gressman Rucker has put the thought
in vary apt form In his speech on the
floor of tbe house, where it ought to
have an influence and it probably will
Of the question of fact involved in
the Mlssourlan's statement, there can
be little doubt. Economy Is an ex
cellent thing, even for congress to
practice, but there is a wide difference
between economy and parsimony or
economy and party politics. No doubt
many democratic brethren believe Just
as does Mr. Rucker, that "too darned
much economy" is being attempted by
the party in its desperate anxiety to
make a record which it may parade
before the people next year, but evi
dently few have the courage of Rucker
to get up "in meetis' " and speak out
what they think.

It Is barely five years since the wireless
telegraph passed oijt of the experimental
stsge and was universally recognized as a
practical means of long distance commu
nication. By July 1 every ocean-going
steamahlp company leaving an American
port that carries fitty persons, Including
pasNengers and crew, by law must be
quipped with a wireless telegraph outfit
capable of aendlng messages 100 miles.
Nothing more Important has been done
In msny years to Increase the safety of
travel at sea than the general Installation
of wireless. Under the new system not
only will every steamship be provided with
better means of self-protection, but it will
be a means of protection for other ships.
The quickness with which relief arrived
from different quarters at the time of tha
collision that resulted in the sinking of the
Republic demonstrated once for all tfw
hereafter the. ocean is- to be dotted with
life-saving stations. .
Other uses of the wireless at sea are to
be regarded as a convenience for passen
gers and owners that could be dispensed
with without great loss. The compulsory
adoption of it ty all passenger-carrying
steamships has now become almost as
much of a safeguard agslnst disaster as a
proper equipment of life-boats.

The Indictment of City Chamberlain Hyde
In New York on the charge of accepting
bribes, and on other charges, taken In con
nection with the recent exposures of cor
rupt legislators In different parts of the
country and the long tale of debauchery In
politics, tends to convey the Impression
that dishonesty has never been so rampant
In America as It Is at present. Everywhere
there Is the same story of vote-selling and
vote-buying, of the utilization of public of

that men are seeking to change our form of
government, some thinking that democracy
ItseU has proved a failure and others being
convinced that yie trouble lies In too little
control of their! own affairs by the people
The truth is that there is less corruption
in politics today. In all parts of the world,
than in any other period of history. The
difference Is that today, we know what IS

THE MAN WHO KICKS.
Charles II. Meiers In Tuck.

Is better than a mixture, half-and-half.
Of smiles and frowns, .used alternately

And that the world will lovn you lf yo
But I have often notlred that the man
who's always kind.
And smiles no matter how hard he s been
(Sets what the kickers fcouldn t take, end

The man who kicks eome gets the best
of it. . .
I've seen It In mv' dally walks through
life, and while I know
That frowns ruing favors sometimes whert
Would fall. 1 try to smile a lit lis every.
w here I ro, . .
And often miss the. best things by a mils,
I ve seen it in the hotels as 1 waited for
While klckera came and almost bad a fit
That made all hands-step lively, and it's

Will be Imposed upon and often sold,
For merchants like to sell their goods shd
always turn the trick
Of paaslng out what a damaged or Is old.
To one who does not raise a .howl snd,
kick for something new."
Although th'thln?B they aVll to him

I like ths smiling method beat, but still
I know 'tis true;
The man who kioks some gets the best
