The Copper Mine Situation.
I If conditions of labor and living In
tho copper mines of Michigan are a
fractional part as deplorable as rep
resented in tho resolutions acted
upon by tha American Federation of
Labor, congress should loso no .time
in acceding to the request of that
body for a thorough investigation.
According to the reports of tho fed
eration's meeting, this resolution sots
forth that, not only have "tho miners
Ignored tho demands of the men,
spurned their attempts at conciliation
and in many ways treated them with
contempt," but also "havo imported
gunmen, thugs and so-called detec
tives Into the strike zone, and theso
men have deliberately killed strikers
in cold blood, assaulted women and
beaten and terrorized children."
This is but a part of tho charges
preferred, but sufficient on which to
baso a demand for action. If the
charges are false, or even partially
true, tho mlno owners may ba ex
pected to Join in the request for an
exposition of the facts; at least they
owe as much to themselves. It Is al
most inconceivable and wholly repug
nant to tho American senBo of de
concy and Justice that such a reign
of Intolerance and terror could be
maintained In this country. But tho
American Federation of Labor Is an
honorable and rosponslblo body, and
such an arraignment as tho result ot
dollberato action on Its part cannot
reasonably bo passed over. It has
put a gravo proposition up to con
gress. A Playful People.
While we are belaboring ourselves
as a rigidly commorclal and work-a-day
puople, one of Uncle Sam's fer-
tlle-bralncd statisticians comes forth
with tho evidence to show that on wo
work arduously and long, so we play.
At least so It appears from our an
nual outlay for toys, not all of which

partment of Commerce, nearly
12,000,000,000 worth of toys woro
Imported Into tho United States in
the month of September alono, and
by tho lost, of th curront year the
total valuo of such Importations for
1013 wilt amount to 10,000,000,000.
Our own domestic manufacture of
toys Is placed at 911,000,000,000 for
tho year, bringing tho toy bill up to
tho tidy little total ot $20,000,000,
000. Then we scold ourselves for over
working and not playing enough. Of

people. When it Is stated that tho

EMEIISON. Neb.. Nov. ll.-To the Kd-J
nor ot ine uee: The great advantages
of a union among seamen are apparent
to every man that hs ever sailed the
ocean, trimmed a ship on the great lakes
or Juggled a cargo of frelaht on a river
Something like ten years ago I shipped
aboard the "Stacker Lee,"' Inendlng to
make the round trip from 8t Louis to
Memphis, which would take six days,
and pay me about JU. I found the work
ing conditions on this boat something
fierce. The steamer, of course, ran day
and night, loaded and unloaded freight
at every port and landing, and carried
but one crew ot deck hands, who did all
the work anI had no hours of sleep or
rest except between landings. The whole
crew were on duty twenty-four hours a
day; sleep two or three hours, then work
like horses another three or four hours,
and keep going at this rate a whole
Tho grub was fairly good, except .the
coffee and butter, which were rotten.
The sailors had no tables to cat from,
and. the cook dealt them rations in big
stew pans, each holding enough for four
or five men. who all ate with spoons
from the same dish, like Indians eating
succotash. There were no beds, bunks
or hammocks for the dccK hands, and
they slept the best they could lying on
the deck or on piles of freight, with their
clothes on ready to Jump when the big
whistle sounded for a landing.
There waa no unton among the men on
the Mississippi at that time, and conse
quently no protection from abuses and
no redress for thoso who suffered the In
sults of that petty tyrant called the first
mate. I deserted this boat at Memphis
and made my way to Detroit. Here I
Joined the Seamen's union, paid my little
fee and received a card that classed me
as an "ordinary seaman." I shipped out
on a vessel that made dally trips between
Detroit and Cleveland, and I say the truth
when I tell you that I never saw work-
ingmen better treated than the sailors
were on this boat. We had a messroom
nnd flunkeys to wait table; we had good
grub and plenty ot It; we had good, clean
beds, mattress, springs, sheets, towels,
etc. We had regular hours of work and
rest, and the forecastle waa so well
lighted and furnished that a sailor could
either play checkers or reed Caesar's
Commentaries either polish his mind or
his brass buttons, as he took the notion.

The Church and Why.
OAKLAND, la.. Nov. lS.-To the Editor
of Tlje Bee: There Is a great deal of
agitation In regard to why there Is a de
creaso In attendance at church services
In the present day. So much so that to
some minds It might be an aggravation
as to where to find the aggregation to
make up the congregation. To attempt
to give the real reason would perhaps
be as futile as to expect an Immediate
solution of the Mexican problem.
