IN AN OBSER VA TION
TT is a pleasure to record acts of
wisdom and human consideration
which tend to promote accord between
labor and capital. The welfare of
employes is more and more becoming
the concern of employers.
Much of the conflict between capital
and labor was due to false theories of
political economy. A generation ago
the wiseacres of political economy
maintained that labor was simply a
commodity and to be dealt with as
such. If anyone had suggested in those
days that the theory was fit only for
slaves and slave-drivers he would have
been regarded as an erratic humani
tarian. But the doctrine was so ig
noble that it could not long survive in
America. And now the crowning tri
umph of a truer ideal has been the in
corporation in the Labor Covenant of
the peace treaty of an article which rec
ognizes that primarily the worker
must be dealt with from the stand
point of his humanity.
These thoughts are suggested by
the action of the Sweet Candy Com
pany of Salt Lake, which follows the
Oregon Short Line and many eastern
companies in providing life insurance
for employes. A policy of $260,000 has
been taken out to cover all employes.
Cirls and boys are insured for $500
each and the men for $1,000 and $1,
$500, according to length of service. The
insurance for the men automatically
increases $100 a year, so that, for ex
ample, one insured for $1,500 would
be insured for $2,000 at the end of
About 300 are employed by, the
Sweet Candy company. Of this num
ber at least 10 per cent according to
accepted life insurance data would
be uninsurable, but the blanket plan
gives insurance to even this 10 per
cent, no examination being necessary.
The Sweet Candy company is now
engaged in the study of a pension sys
tem for employes, and expect to put it
into effect Boon.
Hp HE open season for churchgoing
- jays has begun at Sandersville,
Georgia. We read that Pastor Wray
created a mild sensation when he quit
his pulpit, obtained a shotgun and
killed a jay that had been flying
around the auditorium singing while
the morning services were in progress.
The pastor announced, just before the
congregation 'sang a hymn, that he
wojula Sillthe bird if it sang again.
When the bird began td warble once
more the pastor went to his home with
what must have been vengeful deter
mination in his heart, got his shotgun,
returned to the church and fired once,
slaying the joyful jay.
Have you ever heard a bird sing in
church? Have you ever seen a little
feathered mesengor fly in4 from the
great outdoors, seeming to bring in
with it the refreshing odors of God's
fields and wood? Have you seen it
flutter and stumble about, striking its
wings against pillar or post, and then,
regaining its equilibrium, circle about
the church twittering blithely or
chanting radiantly as if it were deliv
ering a message on the goodness of
the Creator? Its song seemed to bo
a symphony of faith, hope and charity.
It came not from dismal swamps or
miasmatic jungles, but out of the sun
light and the savor of the spring,
breathing of light, its wings reflect
ing the glory of paradise.
That was a vision which Pastor
Wray did not behold. All that he saw
was a pestiferous jay sent by the evil
spirit to defy him. All that he heard
was a spiteful chattering that tore his
sanctiloquent sermon to tatters. The
surge in his breast was not of love,
nor even of admiration. It was the
surge of hate seeking vengeance. Nor
was his envenomed spirit appeased
when he journeyed to his house for
the shotgun. That damnable jay drove
him to insensate fury. He forgot that
the Master was often represented as
a dove and that the mightiest of
choirs is the Creator's myriad-voiced
choir of singing birds.
The pastoi returned to the church
and while the amazed and, of course
indignant congregation looked on, he
"shot up" the tranquil Sabbath morn
and succeeded in killing a bird.
A jay is commonly reported to have
little sense, but the jay that entered
the Georgia church and vied with the
congregation in hymning to the Most
High compares favorably with Pastor
Wray, the gunman.
HpHERB is something so un-Ameri-
can about strike picketing that
the average man revolts at it. For
years organized laborers have used it
as a weapon of industrial warfare. In
good causes and in bad, and yet from
the viewpoint of decency, honor and
