. Come, Let Ug Reason -Together.
John Mitchell's appeal to labor
and capital, "Come now and let us
reason together," .is the last word in
the program of peace between em
ployer and employe. When both
sides sit 8wn to a quietr: reasoning
out of their issues, their problems
are solved. Xottiing can withstand
the light of reason. Nothing has
withstood it in all the world's his
tory. War, 'we say, has made prog
ress possible. War never did any
thing of the kind, without the com
plement of reason.
Israel was appealed to by Isaiah
for some of the very things for which
the prophet of reform is today ap
pealing to labor and capital "Learn
to do well; seek Judgment, relieve
the oppressed, Judge the fatherless,
plead for the widow."-Industrial er
rors of today, like Israel's sins of
old, will dissolve into right and Jus
tice under the burning light of
clear, dispassionate reason. Why
do more men not see that as clearly
as John Mitchell sees It and cease
holding good causes for petty pur
poses? ' Wood as Cuban Peacemaker.
While some doubt the expediency
of sending a peacemaker to Cuba, It
seems to be generally admitted that
if such a plan is pursued, Major Gen
eral Leonard A. Wood would be the
most available man- for the Important
office. He has been suggested by
the New York Herald and the sugges
tion - endorsed by members of con
' General Wood's Iongf ' service as
military commander and later gover
nor, in Cuba gave him an insight Into
Cuban character and problems and a
following among- the people which
no other American seems to possess,
Therefore if wisdom arid expediency
prompt, such . a . course, . undoubtedly
General Wood would be the man best
fitted to arouse Cubans to the im
portance of preserving their inde
pendence. Senator Bacon of Georgia, how
ever, conceding this to General
Wood, believes the' best1 course to
take Is not to send a mediator to the
isla&d at all, but send troops suffi
cient to restore and maintain peace.
His idea Is that if it becomes fully
understood in Cuba that appeal to
military force n. the United States
can effectually be ' made, this will
serve invariably to suppress rebellion
and effect order. There ought to be
a time, however,' to which we might
look with spme degree of complac
ency, when Cuba could get along
without this Damoclean sword held
over the heads of its recalcitrants.
Congressional Humor. .
."Paths of glory lead but to the
grave'? invariably for the' men Who
achieve, distinction' a hutadrlsti 'in
congress.. The highway to fame is
strewn with many political remains
to lend melancholy testimony to that
tact. Only the most hazardous would
care for the "listening senates to
command" that way. v. We are quite
certain Senator Clark of Wyoming
would not.' Yet the senator runs a
flak when he exclaims, upon the floor
of the senate that "For the informa
tion and for the benefit of the gen
eral public" he would like to have
the constitution of the United. States
printed in the Congressional Record.
Of course the Congressional Rec
ord printed it.' It would print most
anything which a member In
good standing would ask. to have
printed. But there is such a hope
less gulf fixed between the cloistered
Congressional Record and the gen
eral public that If this were the only
means of ever getting the constitu
tion before the people we would have
to despair of the undertaking.' Sen
ator Clark's serious character is all
that saves him from the doom of the
congressional humorist's classifica

SCHOOL DAYS IN EAELY OMAHA
VIII. Commencement Twenty-Five Years Ago,
BY VICTOR ROSEWATER,
Member of the Class of 1887 and Now Editor of The Bee
The commencement of 1&?7 was. It goes Elemental Genii." There were recitations
without saying, a great gala event There bV Vena w"' nd Ne,lle Bauserman,
were thirty of us to receive our diplo
mas, so many that for the first time It
became necessary to relect spokesmen
for the class for places on the program
instead of giving everyone a part. Three
boys managed to get through the com
petition with class records and com
mencement ipratlons that would pass
muster, the girls supplying the rest of
the entertainment. It Is interesting to
not the after careers of "the rising gen
eration reflected In the subjects. Wallace
Broatch. who later went to Yale, and then
to West Point, and Into the army talked

come a practicing physician, delved deep

RACE WARS IN
- Fitful Contests of Black
The black race and the white race meet
oftener than they mingle. Negroid ele
ments of population develop, but they
usually are socially semi-outcasts In
lands dominated by the Anglo-Saxon or
people of Teutonic stock. In Latin coun
tries there has been leBS race preju
dice than among Anglo-Saxons. Latin
people are commonly supposed to be
more tolerant, or at any event less ex
acting than Americans or Britons In the
matter of racial purity of blood. This
conception of the Latin attitude receives
a rude shock In Cuba, where we find the
people of the Island dividing on the color

ADVANCING LABOR LEGISLATION
The Federal Eight-Hour Day and Other Laws.
Springfield (Mass.) Republican.
The United States senate's passage of
the house bill extending the eight-hour
principle to air contracts involving labor
on government work calls attention to
the progress made in shortening the
working day in this country. Eight hours
have constituted a legal maximum of
labor In much of the public service of
the United States government for some
time, but only recently has there been a
marked, advance ln forcing private con-
tractors doing government Jobs to adopt
the same limitation. Steps In this dlreo-
tion were taken when the naval appro- and national, as it is presented ln a re
prlatlon act of last year was amended so cent bulletin of the federal bureau of
as to provide for the eight-hour day in
the construction of certain vessels and
bulls. And the postal appropriation act
provided that letter carriers should not
work more than forty-eight hours In six
working days of the week, except the
first five and the last fifteen days of
each year. The enactment of the bill
Just passed by the senate would seem to
mark the final victory of the labor or-
ganlzatlons in securing the adoption of
the eight-hour principle in all work for
the federal government.
At the same time. In the public ser-
vices or public works of the respective
states the elsht-hour 'principle has mado
progress. During the year 1911, New Jer-
sey enacted a law requiring that all em-
nlovM af the lata or men mnlavnd on
or In behalf of the State for any of Its
municlDalltiea or by contractors or ub-
contractors shaU not work more than
eight hours unless In emergency. In which
extra nv is to be allowed for overtime.
The Wisconsin statute was amended by
requiring that contractors must stipulate
the eight-hour day for workmen em
ployed thereunder" and . restricting "ex
traordinary emergency" to the protection
fit property or life from the public
enemy, fire, flood or storm. The Con
necticut statute now prescribes eight
hour? as the limit tor engineers, firemen
and mechanics employed In state institu
tions. In this state, the law now makes
the eight-hour day optional with munici
palities, but at the aame time It directs
the observance of the limitation upon
bourn by contractors and others doing
work for the state or for any municipal-
Ity that has aeopted the eight-hour prln-
cipie. These i are merely examples oi
new legislation on the eight-hour ques-
tion during the year 1911. affecting' only
state or municipal work. ,
The states are also regulating more
and more the hours of labor ln Private
employments on an eight-hour basts. The
San Francinco charter, as ratified by the
California; legislature, now limits the
street' railway employes to eight hours a
day, the work to be done'. In ten con
secutive hours. .The eight-hour day Is
prescribed for miners ln Colorado and
Nevada and in Pennsylvania the hoisting
engineers ln anthracite mine are now re
stricted to eight hours a day. In Mon
tana the eight-hour limitation has been

Even In Jamaica's history there have
been tragic chapters, as all will admit
who can'' recall the race war of forty
years ago w'hen the blacks were so ruth
lessly suppressed by a minority driven
desperate. The "Jamaica massacres"
were a scridal that had no little Influence
on British politics.
' The French have had less trouble with
the colored people In their West India
possessions than other nations have en
countered, for the reason that their tol

The Cuban whites have this advantage

too, seemed to live happily enough with
their colored neighbors under the old
regime, but with the establishment of
Cuban Independence, which opened new
possibilities of political action to the
colored race, trouble began, and has
continued until now it has developed
into full-fledged revolt. We may ulti
mately have (o govern Cuba. We have
been compelled In the last ' decade to
intervene by force at least once, and we
are now stopping short, only In the for-
mal diplomatic sense of another lnter-
vention. If we should be so unfortunate
as to be compelled to occupy Cuba per-

extended to railroad and other tunnels
as well as to mines. All these recent
advances toward the eight-hour basis in
both public and private employments
have taken place in widely separated
parts of the country and they reveal the
pressure that seems to be slowly but
surely establishing the eight-hour prJn-
eiple as the Standard for general use ln
occupations wherein this limitation Is
either desirable or enforceable.
No one, Indeed, can survey the new
labor legislation of the year 1SU, state
labor, without being Impressed by the
bulk of it and also by the progress thus
made toward satisfying labor's demands
for better working condition.
The most notable features of labor
legislation in the United States ln 1911,
acqordlng to the federal labor bureau,
were the movements for employers' lla-
bility and workmen's compensation laws,
for uniform regulation of the employ-
ment of women and children and fyr
more rigid factory and mine Inspection
Occupational diseases also received much
attention, six states taking steps to
secure authoritative reports on the

APRIL, MAY, JUNE.
April came with cloud and shine.
With shower and fitful gust;
She seised the broom that March had 16
And raised an awful dust:
She wept and walled as she Is wont
Most every year to do,
Then beamed and smiled on every one
And disappeared from view.
Then in her stead came lovely May, ,
At fiit she smiled serene.
She coaxed the blossoms from the trees
And decked the earth with green;
Then suddenly she haughty grew, ,
And cold as cold could be;
She chilled the marrow in one's veins,
The sap ln every tree; -
She scowled and stormed until the flowed
Were frightened almost stiff,
She flirted with Jack Frost a heap, .
But now pray what's the diff;
For lovely June has come at last
With her hot suns to burn us
(And I sit shivering as I write, .
While father pokes the furnace.)
Yet June has many Joys ln store,
And we would gladly greet her;
No other month in all the year
Is lovlier or sweeter;
For she brings showers of rice and shoe
On men and maidens mating,
And "rah rah" yells of college .boys, ,. .
And sweet girls graduating. . ,
And here we welcome lovely June
With thrifts of glad elation.
And crown her queen of all the months)
Because she brings-vacation.
