Some figures have been banded
out by the United States census
bureau that are of pertinent Interest
Just at present. They deal with the
manufacturing Industries ' of the
United States and cover the year
!), for which the thirteenth cen
sus wss tsken. The report does not
consider ststlstlce for factories hav
ing products for the census year of
less than 1500, and the word
"establishment" Is used as "meaning
one or more factories, mills or plants
owned, controlled or operated by the
person, partnership, corporation or
other owner, located In the same
town or city for which one set of
books of account la kept"
The census bureau found in 1909
168,491 establishments In operation,
an Increase of 14 per cent over the
year 1904. These establishments
were capltaliied at f 18.428,370,000,
an Increase of 45 per cent. They
used material costing $12,141,291,
000. Their total payroll, salaries
and wages was $4,365,813,000. Their
miscellaneous expenses wre $1,946,
676.000. The totsl valuef products
was $20,672,052,000. Value added
by manufacture, that is, the total of
all products, less cost of materials,
wss $8,630,761,000. On this basis,
adding the payroll and miscellaneous
expense account, we find the total
cost of doing business $6,811,289,
000. Subtracting this from the value
added by manufacturing gives a
profit or $1,219,472,000. If we at
low 6 per cent on the capital stock,
which amounts to $1,105,672,200,
we And a surplus of $118,775,800, or
It ss thsn 1 per cent of the capital in
Vested In the establishments. Some
subsidiary deductions may be of In
terest, as the fact that the 790,267
salaried officials and clerks drew an
average salary of $1,117 for the
year, while the average number of
wage earners employed during the
year was 6,616,046, and their aver
age pay wag $618.
It will be apparent from thla that
the cost of labor Is not the biggest
Item In the expense of doing busi
ness, for the total payroll was but
about one-third of the cost. In
seeking the cause of the present high
cost of living It Is better to get the
facts at the outset

Ths "World's League for a Bane
Christmas" Is a unique organisation,
but It aeems to be doing some good.
Wo have bad to fight eoncertedly for
a "safe and sane Fourth of July,"
and now, ft appears, must work to
gether for a similar Christmas. It
Is a hard time we have with our
sanity.
, But Christmas Is like other days
to some It has a "morning after."
It involves the danger of overdoing
and.overglvlng. This Is especially
true of many poor people, who may
be Inclined to use their hearts more
than their sound Judgments at such
times. 8uch often fall victim at this
season to the subtle charms held out
by the loan shark, and to protect
them from these wiles and their own
indulgence this league Is aiming.
Thousands of poor people are now
receiving circulars whtcb begin like
this:
MONET FOR CHRISTMAS Don't let
tits Christmas stocking go empty tor
lack of money. Call oa er writ us.
To all such as fall prey to these
sinister appeals eomes that bitter
"morning after." Borrowing money
at usury to give Christmas presents
makes a travesty of this glorious
fesst . People tempted thus should
stiffen their backbones and summon
the courage to say "No." There Is
enough of ordinary extravagance and
vain giving, let alone that with
such serious penalties attached.
Lead Poisoning-. -The
effect of lead poisoning con
tracted In various lines of Industry
baa become the subject of a careful
Investigation by the Department of
Commerce aad Labor. The dangers
and results from this are much more
serious aad widespread, no doubt
than generally thought of. The gov
ernment's action In going into the
subject Is a very good Indication of
Its Increasing Interest In the per
sons welfare of Its citlsens, partic
ularly those not well equipped to
give their personal safety and health
the proper attention. It Is one phase
of paternalism which surely will not
be criticised.
Twenty-three of the twenty-five
white lead factories In the United
States have come under this offlclsl
Inspection and 858 rates of leal pois
oning were found, sixteen of which
resulted In desth In sixteen months.
But not only Is the dsnger preva
lent In the white lead factorlee; It
exists also In china and earthenware
factories, in printing offices, type
foundries, smelters, coach bullling
plants, and paint and color manu
factories, of course.
The remarkable Improvement
wrought In such places In England
la strong encouragement to our gov
ernment For Instance, only sev
enteen rssee of this sort have been
discovered among British printers
la tsn years, as a result of the vig
ilant work done by the Inspectors of
the government The Department
of Commerce and Labor, through
Commissioner Nelll, baa promul
gated aa elementary campaign of
education along this line and In Its
circulars such precautions as these
Sre foundj First, carefully Instruct
the employee in the dangers it the
'poisoning; cleanliness of the work
shop and the worker, ample washing
j appliances, hot and cold water;
: dustproof machinery where possible.
respirators where dust abounds, no
eating of lunch In the workshop ex
cept where the most scrupulous care
can be taken.
Our government Is getting started
at this splendid work a little late,
but It Is starting with a will. It
has found that cases of tuberculosis
have come from lead poisoning and
it proposes to give this phase of the
situation especial attention. It
probably will geek some remedies In
legislation, of which there Is ss yet
lack, but above all, it will Insist on
Its campaign of education among
workers to school them In the haz
ard and the possible means of avoid
ing the same 'n their occupation.
Unreit and Prog-reis.
A great deal has been said re
cently concerning the unrest which
marks the life of nations. Uneasi
ness Is manifest In all directions.
Apparently satisfactory conditions
sre being broken up. The social
strata are being upheaved and the
whole face of affairs Is being altered
so rapidly at times that the changes
are almost kaleidoscopic. So gen
eral Is the disturbance and so wide
spread tg effects that It la needless
to particularise. No matter which
way one turns, the game spectacle of
changing social, political and eco
nornto conditions are confronted.
This situation may frighten timid
souls or displease those who sre tem
porarily prosperous, but the unrest
Is the best possible indication that
progress In all directions Is being
made. Content Implies stagnation,
and atsgnatlon presages death. The
history of civilization Is a continual
succession of these waves of social
unrest Every step forward taken
by man In his npward progress has
come from the pushing necessity of
escaping from the disturbances that
surround his daily existence. It is
born from the ambition of the Indi
vidual to do more and be more than
those around him. It Is the desire
to accomplish, to create, to achieve
the divine leaven working in man's
nature. Its stimulus Is Imperative.
It Is opposed at all times to settled
conditions. When the unrest shall
have passed It will be because the
goal has been reached because
there Is nothing more for man to do.
and the night-time of all life Is at
hand. But so long as man In his
Imperfect condition Is set against an
unequal struggle with the forces of
nature, while the spark of divinity
sbtnes within him, will be be goaded
with the unrest that leads him to dis
turb and break up bis environment
for the purpose of gain It g something
better, something more worthy, for
himself and the race. 1
8oclal unrest may have a disquiet
ing Influence on those who believe
they have an advantage In things as
they are, but they must concede to
the rest of mankind the right to
change. Social unrest Is simply a
forerunner of social progress.
Lo, the Poor Indian.
Not so very long ago we were ac
customed to hear earnest speakers
refer In terms of pathetic eloquence
to the Indian as a vanishing race.
We were told that contact with the
white man had bad a baneful Influ
ence on the noble character of the
untutored savage and that be was
being swept away by the devastating
vices be had acquired through his
communication with the pale face.
Our popular lore was full of pleasant
little anecdotes which denoted' the
loftlnees of the redskin's character,
sn l the baseness of the white man,
who practiced toward him only cruel
deception and ruthless, wanton
spoliation.
. And now comes the census man,
with an array of Incontrovertible
figures, and shows us that more In
dians are living In the country today
than ten years ago. and that In
twenty years the Indian population
has actually Increased by a little
more than 7 per cent. Alongside of
this ts the Information (mm the In
dian bureau that the Sioux on the
great Pine Ridge and Rosebud reser
vation In South Dakota have become
self-sustaining; that Instead of rais
ing scalps, the ssvages who followed
Red Cloud. Spotted Tall. Iron Shirt.
American Horse, Gall and Roman
Nose, and the other great savages of
the tribe who danced the ghost dance
for Sitting Bull, and who have deco
rated many pares of lurid romance,
are now tillers of the soli and keep
era of flocks and herds. They have
graded railroads and built school
bouses snd done other things of
service to humanity and themselves
In ways so decorous and seemly that
they may be said to be fairly Bt for
all the duties the United 8tatea gov
ernment Imposes upon its cltixens.
Twenty-one yesrs ago the last
serious disturbance among the Sioux
was In progress. The ghost dance
was the Inspiration; the complaint
concerning rations was the pretext
Several thousand troops of the
United States forces and two. regi
ments of Nebraska's cltlxen soldiery
confronted the Sioux nation in arms,
and the massacre at Wounded Knee
was the culmination of a disturbance
that la now Impossible. The progress
made by these Indians in twenty
years almost passes understanding.
Twenty-one years sgo they were but
little advaoced beyond the conditions
of the etone age. In which they were
found by the discoverers of America.
They, had substituted steel for stone
Implements; they were using rifles
Instead of bows and arrows, but their
tribal habits and customs were the
same. Efforts at civilization had
failed, and one eminent man, who
had great experience through close
contact with them, gave it as his
conclusion that the American Indian
could no more be domesticated than
could the grizzly bear or the eagle.
Yet a firm, progressive policy by the
government broadly conceived and
generously carried out, hag changed
all these conditions, and the rJloux
Indian now stands by right on his
own feet
What has been done on the Pine
Ridge and Rosebud reservation will
be done elsewhere. The Indian Is
not a vanishing race, but a race that
I? Increasing. Its horizon has been
broadened through the beneficent In
fluence of the white man's civiliza
tion. The Indian has surely been
lifted from a state of savagery to en
lightenment and will live to "iaugh
as we do now" at "Lo, the poor
Indian."

The Kansas City Star recently
quoted Dr. Arthur Smith, a Congre
gational missionary of thirty years'
experience In China, as saying that
the people and officials of the United
States needed to learn the lesson of
being respectful to foreigners who
come to their shores. He complains
that we are grossly disrespectful In
the nlcknamea.jRre apply to them,
such as "Chinks," "Japs," "Bo
hunks," "Dagos," and the like.
Well, perhapg there Is something
In that; perhaps we might be less
jocular with these newcomers. But
has Dr. Smith ever noticed how well
these aliens get on in spite of this
"disrespectful" treatment? Has he
ever observed bow little the teasing
seems to affect their ability to ac
quire our language and our money,
to get hold of paying businesses and
build commodious homes and be
come prominent citizens of their com
munities? Evidently, after all, It
makes little difference to them what
they are called on landtng, just so
they get an equal chance with the
natives. Not much to ask? Possibly
not, but more than they would get
In any other country, their own not
excepted.
Oh, there is not so much to com
plain of in our treatment of these
newcomers A " lot of them never
know what they are being called until
they can understand our language,
anyway, and by then they are
such , good, prosperous .'. Americans
they don't care. They laugh and
pass the Joke on to some of the newer
newcomers. Bo long as people may
come from any part of the globe
and get the same kind of a chance
to live in America aa the native-1
born American gets, they are not
going to worry much over what they
are dubbed at the docks where they
land. It is very difficult, In the light
of what foreign-America Is and
stands for, to agree with Dr. Smith
In the plaint that what Americans
most: need to learn la how to treat
foreigners.
Fih School "Frets."
Rabbi Wise, one of the leading
thinkers In this country, has come
out in unequivocal condemnation of
the Oreek letter fraternity In the
high school. "H Is the foe of learn
ing," he says. "When we ( become
alive to the menace of them and
sensible to our own power, the high
school Greek letter fraternities will
speedily pass. They are unfraternal,
but they are Greek In the magnifying
of the arts of pleasure."
Of course, it Is a travesty on frater
r.allsm to call these societies by that
name, especially as they are con
ducted In high schools, and we have
the word of such men as President
Bchurman of Cornell that their Influ
ence and effect In colleges and uni
versities Is equally subversive of any
thing altruistic in Its tendencies. In
their spirit and their active operation
these "frats" breed class factionalism
and prejudice, fostering the very ele
ments most Inimical to the principles
of our democratic system of public
education. No child's mind In Its
formative stage Is equal In resisting
force to the baleful predellctlons of
thla thing.
But Its condemnation need not rest
upon any but the most practical basis.
Rsbbl Wise simply says the frater
nity ts the "foe to learning." Thst
ts enough. Thst puts It out of all
consideration as a part of high school
life. And Rabbi Wise Is taking no
arbitrary stand on this proposition.
He Is supported by the most advanced
thinkers among our educators today.
It ts sn exceedingly good thing to
have the weight of such men's wis
dom and Influence thrown publicly
on the aide of education and against
those things that hurt and hinder It.
But these educators should hsve the
co-operation of parents to make their
efforts thoroughly effective.
