T(i ponuhir idea of tho severity of tho

lead one to Rupposi that all brunches of
business were severely fliujrnntecl and that

examination of pome of the principal com
mercial and industrial facts nvailalde
teaches tlie error of popular opinion in this

1HM was but little more than tho number of

and they show conclusively that while there

cat ioK t hut t he volume of business has been

to any such extent as ind ented by the crip

been badly or ppled temporarily, but on tho
whole t he to u me ot tnisiness of the country
during the depressed period hue been fairly
lbKcussiriL-- the cauR'fl of Induslrlnl depres
sion. Mr. Wright says: One of the chief
causes which produce depressed periods is
a fall in prices. Itmattois not what onuses
tho fall. The first Fiitluence of a fall in pr oes
in an apprehension of los where low prices
may bo regarded hs one of tho chief and one
of the lending causes, if not the loadinir
(Minse.of indusirial depress;ons. the inliuencr,
of the cause is sure to reaor upon itself and
brinjr aluwit an activity through example,
theetfect-of which ia felt in various direc
tions. Machinery, Mr. Wright says, usintr the
word in it 1 anient and most uompi-eliensive
nense, has been most potent in brinpin tiic
niechunically proilui,:nK nations ot ihe
xvorld tt their present industrial posftton,
'1 ho rapid development and adoption of ma
chinery in all of the activities beloiiRinu to
production and trunsnortut ion have brought
what is citminoiilv called over production,
ao that machinery and over-procluction are
two causes so rlnsolv allied that it is quite
difficult to dtsouf.s the one without taking
the ot her side into cons derttt ion. Tiat
lalior savititf machinery, so-;aied, but whudi
more properly should lie called Inhor-niak'ittf
or bibot-asH stimf machinery, displaces labor
temporarily, cannot tMiectvst'uily be denied.
AM men of sound mmds admit the perma
nent (rood fleets of machinery ; but the per
manent tro") effects of it do not prevent the
temporary displacement ol labor, which dis
placement, bo far as the ialair displaced is
concerned, assists in crippling tho co
Htiminir power of a com iu unity. A few
ill list rations relative to the dis)lacennnt
of labor by the in troduot ioi of machinery,
erhaps of no value in themselves but of
listoric value in preserving the rrowtb tf
industrial systems and tho changes which
come with them, are jriven together with a
fiass of facts relating to the tempirary dis
placemefii of lalmr and to cond tions of in

ever-recurring periods of depression. Theso
eonsiderntions are shown to be valid ihi ough
the information collected by tho bureau in
all the countries involved.

orpnrat ion for, however vn In able such
giants may be to the public Interest develop
ing great lines of railway. the result Isthat
the hinds constitute a hasis to ti greater or
less extent fur speculative purposes.
la gitimate voluntary Im mig nil ion mnv be
too rtipid to enable a country developing lis
Industrie to assimilate labor from t he out
side, but w hen im mi v rat inu becomes a uh
ject of inducement under contract for tho
purpose oi displacing a h gher grit do of labor

of law should bo called in to prevent thfl
cont nuance of the vrotnr. AH the trsdstiins
of the country lnrni-h ariruments against
the regulation of voluntary Imm'gi at ion.
Yet voluntary Immigration may do tho In
dustrie of t he country harm: tind tho fact
that ihe industrial world has arrived at what
may bo culled a crisis period through tho
rupid extens on of machinery and the con
sequent over-development of the word
makes. Mr Wright thinks, the doctrine Unit
the I'niied MhIcr fillers an asylum to the
world somewhat dflmrerous.
I.hws to stop speculation. !f spe'dficallv ap

Industrial arb trut'on is advocated, but to

Industrial co partnership is recommended.
Ttut littie has been done in this direction in
the Foiled Slates, but wherever the princi
ple has been tried there has been three
grand resuhs: Labor has received a more
liberal share tVn1 its skill, capital has been
better remunerated and the moral tone of
the whole cotiim unit y in vol ved raised.
The ortraniation of capital, the commis
sioner says, f rightens the labor forces, and
in return tlie rapid organ v it tion of labor
frightens eiipttal, and yt these two krnd of
oigani.ations are suggest eil as remedies for
bid list rial depressions. There, emi not bo
much to four ' tho complete organ zat ion of
t tie employers on one ham! and the employes
on the other: in fact, there is great hope of
such com piet-e organization, for when or
ganization is eompleie on each s do, each
force must treat w ith the other through In
to 1 1 gent TcprO'entat ives. and such treat
ment would result in 4o-nu- awav with pas
sion, with excitement, and all that oiune-t of
Ihe endeavor of a great hod vol men to treat
with ihe proprietors individually.
Profit shtir ng and ortrRirzatlon of r11 the
forces of industry would a d in securing a
more .iust dirision of The profits of produc
tion, and one of the first advantages to be
g;t ned would be a reduction in the hours of
labor, considered by tniinv as rtie onlv solu
tion for labor troubles and thegreat panacea
for industrial depressions. Fnder complete
organization of labor and capital the hours
of labor could beadlusted on a basis lar
more satisfactory than by law. ,
There 'fi "the commissioner says, no contest'
between labor and capital, nor between thnj
l.iborer and capitalist as such, but there Is ai
contest bet ween Ihe 1 aS i or to t h e pro Mrs
of capital and wages of labor, or in simple;
term-, as to the profits each shail ren-eive for
his respective Investment, and this contest.'
will continue so long as the purely wage
system lasts. It is absurd to say that the in
terests of capital and lalnrr are identical
They are, In. wever, reciprocal, and the i ti
le 11 gent e vpreh ension ol 1 h is reciprocal'
element can only bo brought out into the
fullest play by tho most complete organi
zation so lliirt each party shall feel that he
is an integral parr of the whole working
establishment i u h is sumifittrv the commissioner says J'-- rt
the clients of the .resont industrial depres
sion are wearing away and all the indp-a-t.ons
are that prosperity is slouiv. gradually,
but safely returning and that the extent of
the depression has not been so great as the
popular mind has conceived It
In conclusion the cominiss owr suggests
ifi the way of reined al legislat on, that wttn
a bealthv public opinion behind it the law
making jiower rati prevent, to a great de
frree, tho unholv spcorlaton in food prod
ucts. It can indulge in a conservative care
in extending railiniad building and n facjj
tat ng tho organization ot manufacturing
corporal ons. It can restrict the grants
of the public domain. Jt cm enact
uniform bankruptcy laws, extending the
pro isions of hueta laws so that the poor
man indebted but a few hundred dollars
shall be able to readjust hid financial affairs;
as readdv as the larger debtor. It can
abridge the provisions of laws relating to
the collection of dehis. to the end that tho
credit system shall not be abused It cart see
to it that the tanlf shall be regulatod on the
basis of Justice and science, and not on a
haphazard basis which atlects only individ
ual int-iestH and olientimes ntlicts general
harm It can sec that a stable currency be
Kuaranl-e-d, that tho workman mnv know
the purchasing power ol his stipulated earn
ings. I! can consider what reasonable and
h u mane tvgulat .ons may be adopted relat i o
t iintn Kralion. and see to 11 that labor is
not lowered cither In standard or through
