thousands were working for 10 cents an
hour, sent a special message to the New
York Legislature, in whichJie said:
"Public attention has been forcibly turned to
the fact that a large number of men are unable
to find employment. During the past Fall and
Winter the problem of the unemployed has
steadily grown more acute. For the man who
is not sincerely anxious to secure work the pub

ious to work, but cannot find employment, the
State has sympathy and a very real concern."
