THE INDUSTRIAL WAR
Washington, Aug. 1 9. Interesting
testimony as to efficiency and wages
was contributed during the tariff de
bate by Senator Thomas of Colorado.
The lead schedule was under consid
eration. There was the usual argu
ment about protecting the wages of
the poor workingman and a com
parison made between mine wages
of the poor workingman and a comr
parison made between mine wages
in Mexico and the United States.
Sejiator Thomas said:
"My experience teaches me that a
20-cent laborer will always bring
forth a 20-cent product, and that a
half-starved and ill-fed laborer will
prove in the end far more expensive
than a well-fed and well-paid lab
orer." The senator also nroducRd fisnirPR
which showed that the cost of mining
a ton of lead ore in India, where 20
cents a day is paid in wages, amounts
to just twice the cost of minlner a ton
in the United States, where the wages
are $3.50 a day. This is due to the
fact that the American miner pro
duces just twelve times as much ore
as the East Indian.
