A LIVING WAGE. Arbitrators
should not consider a wage that
means merely a bare existence. Men
are not horses. They need more than
enough to provide a place to sleep,
clothing to cover their nakedness
and food enough to kee pthem strong
enough to work. Men need to marry
and raise children. And the best way
to determine a fair wage is to con
sider what wage is necessary to make
the best citizens. Everybody in Chi
cago is interested in healthy, clear
eyer, clear-brained, alert, intelligent
motormen and conductors men who
have plenty to eat, plenty of sleep in
a good home, comfortable clothing,
music, pictures, magazines and news
papers and good books in the home,
and enough besides to make them
and their families happy.
If this county is ever plunged into
war the workingmen or their sons
will have to do the fighting. The fu

ters' case employers were given dam
ages because of a boycott by the hat
ters' nuion. Wonder how the courts
would look at it if employes locked
out by the employers, who started a
sympathetic lockout which is intend
ed to boycott innocent workers in
order to coerce striking carpenters,
were to sue for damages?
We read with great glee of that
Missouri farmer who lured a New
York Rube down into the Ozarks and
unloaded a gold brick on him. Now
if he can avoid speculating'in Wall st.
we will believe the Missourian wise.
We do not blame Gen. Huerta so
much; but what ought to be done
with New York speculators who
pledged him financial aid in his at-
Ltempt to arrange for the murder of a
few thousand more wretched Mexi
cans? We observe that in christening
Lady Decies' baby they omitted both
Jay and Gould from the ten or 12
names they handed it showing that
the Englishman's respect for his
wife's family extends to the bank ac
count. We read that one may hypnotize a
cobra by pressing its neck with the
fingers. One may also hypnotize a
rattlesnake by biting its head off.
If Mexico keeps at it they will have
