LOS ANGELES HERALD j SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 39, 1905.
DECAY OF AMERICAN SKILLED LABOR
The great cotton and woolen mills of New England
are running short-handed because it is Impossible to get
the complement of operators. In some of the mllli it is
possible to run only one-half the time. In the great
central city of the cotton manufacturing Industry, Pall
River, the population has decreased 6000 within the
Not only in these mills, but In all the Industries of
New England there now prevails what is called "a
skilled labor famine." No such condition has been
known in the labor history of that part of the United
The cause of this anomalous situation Is a leading sub
ject of discussion in eastern newspapers. The New York
Commercial, a recognized authority In such matters,
attributes the skilled labor shortage, in great measure,
to "the policy of labor unions, which systematically and
persistently cut down the number of apprentices In
practically all the trades." This policy, the Commer
clal declares, "may serve to keep the present genera
tion of artisans well paid and prosperous, but it threat
ens to fill the unions with unskilled labor in the future
and thus work a serious injury to their own cause."
It is an unquestionable fact that the whole aspect
of the cotton manufacturing Industry in the New Eng
land states has changed within a few. years. Formerly
the operatives were nearly all Americans, although
there was a liberal sprinkling of French Canadians
who were attracted by wage rates considerably higher
than those obtained at home. •
Now, however, the operatives in these mills are
composed largely of European immigrants — Italians,
Poles, Russians, Portuguese, Greeks, Finns, etc. —
classes of people accustomed to working for very low
wages in their native countries. In short, the American
element "is abandoning the industrial field in the New
England ' Btates— surrendering to the lowest class of
the foreign element.
As argued by close observers of labor conditions in
the east, the cause which has produced this situation in
New England will inevitably lead to like results in
other parts of the United States. That is to say, the
deficiency in the volume of skilled labor, resulting from
rigid labor union rules concerning apprentices, will lead
to a gradual running out of American skilled labor and
the substitution of immigrant labor from Europe.
In regard to apprentice restriction the Washington
Post says: "Some of the best minds in the cause of
labor have called attention to the danger of such a
course; they have pointed to the decadence of indus
try in Great Britain, which is attributable largely to
this policy on the part of the unions."
The fact Is palpable to all observers of conditions
relative to skilled labor in the United States that, In
pursuing the course noted, ,the unions are metaphori
cally sitting on a limb and sawing It off on the tree side.
A bullfight is scheduled for next Sunday at Tia
Juana, Just below the Mexican line, of which a San
Diego paper says: "M. Rodriguez, 'the King of Valor,'
will hypnotize the fiercest bull of the fight; he agrees
to place the big animal under his control." But the bull
may determine to hypnotize M. Rodriguez.
FOR SWEET CHARITY
The "rarity of Christian charity" is a much less
fitting reminder in the light of such an offering as The
Herald reported yesterday. The munificent gift of
$ 225,000 by a nameless donor for the benefit of indigent
old people is worthy of more than passing attention.
The zealous efforts of .the Little Sisters of the Poor,
strugglng with meager means, to aid the old and help
less, led to the making of that splendid contribution.
There is no more commendable field of charity than
the one in which are found men and women who are
nearing the end of life's Journey without the comforts
that make life worth living. .
The example set by that giver who in Christian
spirit conceals his or her Identity should appeal strongly
to the many persons in Los Angeles who are blessed
with abundant wealth. With all Its great heart and its
readiness to abate suffering and help the needy, Los
Angeles is not up to the average eastern cities in the
extent of its charitable provision. There are many in
stitutions in the city which are devoted to such work,
but some of them, as recent investigation shows, are
absorbents rather than dispensers of charity.
The giver of the large sum to aid the noble work
of the Little Sisters of the Poor has made an invest
ment that will yield better returns in the satisfaction
of having done an eminently good deed than is yielded
by all the dividends of the Standard Oil company.
A New York dispatch states that J. P. Morgan is
coming home from Europe with 127 new suits of
clothes. Probably the suits are mementos — made from
the fleeces of lambs skinned by the champion lamb
skinner of Wall street.
CONFIDENCE IN LIFE INSURANCE
One gratifying outcome of the Equitable Life Assur
ance company's affairs is a sense of relief to millions
of people. The solidity of that great fiduciary concern
is beyond question now. All the extravagance and
grafting disclosed by the investigation made a total of
loss that seems trivial by the side of the enormous sur
plus. The complete reorganization which is being ef
fected, in connection with the safeguards provided for
the future, will cause a restoration of public confidence
In the old institution.
Still more important, as a result of the Equitable
upheaval, is the effect thereof upon the whole life insur
ance business. The strenuous experience of the Equit
atb has afforded a practical lesson of great value to
all persons interested in life insurance. Probably every
life company in the United States has been subjected to
such scrutiny as It never underwent before as a conse
quence of the disclosures in the New York concern.
And the lesson will lead to greater care in the future,
all along the life insurance line, in respect to the safe
guarding of the sacred trust committed to such insti
The fact that such an enormous surplus could be
piled up by the Equitable company in spite of the lavish
wuste of funds that the research revealed, shows the
possibility of lowering the rates exacted by the big
companies. The new president of the Equitable claims
to have reduced the society's expenses already at the
rate of ¥500,000 a year. That saving belongs to the
policy holders and they should have the benefit' of it in
a discount on policy payments.
With the restoration of public confidence 'n the
Equitable concern, and Incidentally the increased con
fidence in other companies, a fresh impetus is likely
to be given to life insurance, Companies that satisfy
the public demand for absolute 'safety, affording assur
ance of competent and honest management, will find
their business increasing in larger volume than before
the quake that shook the Equitable.

RECEPTION HELD FOR SUF-
LIBRARY AFFAIR DISCUSSED
Rev. Anna H. Shaw Makes a Strong
Plea for Woman's Rights, and
Objects to the Term
Brilliantly gowned women thronged
the Woman's club house yesterday
afternoon to do honor to Miss Susan B.
Anthony, Rev. Anna Shaw and others
of the party leading suffrage workers,
now in Los Angeles.
Before the close of the affair all for
mality had been dropped and If a mem
ber of the library board had chanced to
drop In he would have declared It was
an Indignation meeting, with ' Miss
Jones as the motive. Of the women
who met there many have been most
active In the fight against the library
board, and two honored guests who at
tended the meeting ln'the council cham
ber Thursday evening were ready to
add their voices In what they term an
Injustice to all women.
Dr. Shaw objects to being called one
of the fair sex, and when she stated
her objection yesterday afternoon it
was evident by the applause that the
leading club women of Los Angeles are
of one mind with her. . ■ ■ . • ■
■ "The time has come," said she, "when
we women have a right to resent being
spoken of as members of the fair sex,
because of the color of our cheeks. . It
is time we should be known as the fair
sex because we ■ are fair and refuse to
countenance unfair things.
Scores Library Board
"I attended ; the so-called- Investiga
tion at the library Thursday evening
and the moment I entered the room I
could not help feeling the dividing line
between Justice and Injustice.' It was
in the air.
"If any woman could have been In
that room and not felt the humiliation
of having -to sit there helpless without
a vote I should be ashamed to have
that woman's seared conscience and
blighted intelligence. ■■*.:•■
"All I can say of the library case Is
that a case which cannot, be aired is a
bad case. \ .. -.'
"As I entered the room I- heard one
woman say, -' There is Susan B. An
thony.' ,' >>,•-■■••>.
" 'What right has she got to be [ here?'
demanded another, and then ■. I knew
that a case which could not bear the
silent presence of Miss Anthony, who
stands for Justice to women, must be a
bad one. • • ' ' "'■
"Susan B. Anthony declared that all
over the country women are displaced
by men who are not as competent as
they, Just because the women have no
right to defend themselves.
"You have your 'he' and 'him' and
'his' everywhere but where is your
"You women can be taxed, fined and
hanged all under the pronoun 'he,' but
the only time 'he' does not include 'she'
is at the ballot box."
During the reception hours yesterday
afternoon the guests of honor were
seated on the platform in the maWi
auditorium of the club h<suse and were
greeted. by nearly 2000 club women.'
"Women from every state," said Miss
Anthony, and she spoke truth.
Remembers Many Faces
"Why I met you in Denver and
walked home one evening after the big
meeting," said one. Another had spoken
with her In New York, and she had
visited at the home . of still ' another.
"Don't you remember?" was on every
lip— and she usually did, this woman
whom 86 years have failed to make old.
The auditorium and the reception
rooms were a mass of tropical plants,
flowers and ferns and these massed on
the platform presented a beautiful

ing ordinance passed by the council a
week ago, provision is made for city
Inspection of all house gas fittings. The
work of inspection has hitherto been
borne by the lighting companies, but
as the city has signified its intention to
take the work in charge the Los An
geles Gas and Electrlo company, which
has practically a monopoly of the local
field, will discharge its two Inspectors
The city has made no definite ar
rangements for - inspection. The gas
company will not connect any house
with Its mains until such has been done.
Are hundreds of homes, which are now
being piped, to be cut off temporarily
from illumination by the action of the
city council and the gas company? The
developments of yesterday show that
such will be the case. •
Plumbing Inspector A. A. . Bennett
said yesterday that he could not pos
sibly get the new department . into
working order before September. ' He
was surprised to learn that the gas
company would do away with its in
spection next Monday.
Delay Is Certain
No meeting of the council can take
place for ten days. Even should that
body order Immediate action at that
time, a delay of several days will en
sue before even the emergency ap
pointees can be started to work.
Inspector Bennett said yesterday: "I
do not know what we shall do. I have
no men,' no books on which to make the
records, nothing. Furthermore I do not
know at this. time what I shall require.
The department may need two or three
men. We have no means of knowing
how large a task It Is. We can figure
somewhat on the plumbing business,
but for ' this gas Inspection, there may
be thirty Jobs or three hundred Jobs
each week for all we know. It will be
Impossible for me to do anything until
the council gets to work a week from
next Monday and after that it will
take some time."
The cost of Inspection for the average
house will be $2.50, paid by the owners
under the new ordinance which relieves
.the gas companies of any responsibil
ity. The charges are such as to merely
