monthly wage of the males Is $59.03, while
that of the females averages but $40.80,
with the males working nine and one
auarter hours per day and the females
eight and one-half hours.
This survey shows that there Is an
average of two and one-quarter persons
dependent on every w&pe earner within
the t. te. so that we have 623,871 persons
dependent upon the wages of the 187,346
persons, or, in other words, 62 per cent
of the 1.192.214 neoDle of the state, which
comprises our entire population, belong to
U;u wage-earning class.
Speaking specmcaiiy, a wage earner is
one who is working for wages and is
dependent upon some other person for
employment, being subject to discharge
by their employer, in this class in our

hands and have not taken Into account
the tenant farmer, the farm owner, doc
tors, lawyers, dentists (other than those
dependent upon a wage salary), justices
of the peace, constables and all business
men and concerns, housewives and other
persons who are not earning a salary.
The farm laborers constitute the largest
group, consisting of 27,747 persons, with a
monthly wage of $28, which includes
board, room and washing, which would
bring their standard up to $46.40 per
month. Next comes the railway em
ployes with 26,867 persons, earning an
average monthly . wage of $67.69 for the
men and $46.76 for the women. Next

sons, with a monthly average wage of
tfi0.48 for the malee and $38.40 for the fe
males. The highest salaried class in the entire

T. II. Sentiment Wanes.
J. C. Robinson of Hartington. an at
torney who appeared before the supreme
court this momlrig, says that he can
see quite a change in the political con
ditions In his locality.
"The Roosevelt sentiment is not nearly
as strong as it was two months ago and
as far as I can see seems to be losing
ground. Mr. Taft is much stronger than
he was at the time of the republican
national convention and I am confident
that when election rolls around thero
will be a very strong showing for the
president Of course we . see , people
going wild over Mr. Roosevelt In some
localities, but we saw them doing the
same thing in the case of Mr. Bryan four
years ago, and yet they voted for Mr.
Taft then and I think they will do 30
this time." '
