TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13.
The Strike Settled.
The packing house strike has been
called off, and while it is announced
that it has cost the unions several
millions, and the packers more than
it has the unions, it does not appear
who has been gainer by it.
Certainly the people who eat meat
have not gained anything. It is
up to them to pay the losses sustain
ed by the packers, and the packers
will collect it sooner or later.
It is always so with strikes affect
ing the output of any of the necessi
ties of life. If the strikers win, and
get higher wages, their employers
raise the price of the commodity
enough to cover the increase in
wages as well as the losses through
inactoft. If the employers win, it
is simply the cost of inaction which
the coristimer, must stand. But in
either case, it is the public in gen
eral thaf fobts the bills. No matter
who wins, the great majority loses.
Strikes should be only resorted to
as the very last resort; and not until
both employers and men have ex
hausted every possible means to
bring about an amicable settlement
through. -arbitration. A big strike
means - Waste, all, the way ar6und;
and we have more than once seen
how a protracted strike may mean
cruel suffering. It is a difficult mat
ter to make the public believe that
the majority of them are not pre
ventable if both employer and em
ploye afe really willing to meet on
the business like basis of arbitration.
Neither party gains anything by
a strike and it is awful hard for the
poor man, to go up against the
money power. There should always
be amicab>le 'relations between labor
and capital gnd their differences
shouldi be settled without strikes. I1
is a fact, however, that the tendency
of human nature has always beers
for thes str ong' to 'oppress the weak
and -money being the strong power
in this..land;.is,as a rule, over-bearing
Aind the poor fellow by whose labor
* these large fortunies are made has
that -spark .of independence in hin
which at times rebels at the oppres
sion. -But it is better, if possible,
to settle the trouble without strikes,
for there' is loss in the end to thc
striker. Ue has to secure the nec
essaries sof life by his labor, and in
this case he will have to pay the loss
to the trusts by 'the increase in the
price of those* things he must have.

-We believe it was Thomas Jeffer
son who- predicted the freedom of
the slaves as for back as 1821, and
at the same time he said that being
*free and enjoying the same rights
under the government the two races
could not live together. The first
part of the prophecy has been fulfill
ed. The latter will be. We believe
the final'soletion of this race problem
must be the seperation of the races.
Amalgamation is impossible. The
difference is too great. The crime
of the igth century was when with
freedom came the franchise. This
has been admitted by some of those
*who were instrumental in giving the
suffrage to a- race that had been in
slavery for generations arid who for
lack of training and education were
entirely unprepared to exircise 'it.
These "Rough Riders" and "Before
Day" clubs can only result in deteri
ment to those who are organizing
In any conflict between the two
races in the south there can be but
one result. No one knows this bet
ter than the negro, and he should
go along and attend to his duty in
the sphere which is his and he will
be given justice by his white brother.
We have very little patience with
those who see the "nigger in the
wood pile" on every occasion and
who, therefore, are trying to arouse
race prejudice. It will all work out
for the best and in the right way, and
trouble is hastened by such organiza
tions as those in Virginia and Geor
gia, and by the appeals to prejudice
of some of our small politicians.
Pulled Two Million Teeth With His
Thumb and First Finger.
There has been much weeping and
wrailing over the death of-a dentist,
but there are dentists and dentists.
and this one was a Roman favorite.
Of immense stature, gowned in the
robe of- his. order, this monk-dentist
had established himself on the island
in the Tiber, where he did his work
in the open air in the little garden at
tached to his monastery, and for
nothing. His- favorite instruments
were his thumb and first finger. "Let
me see! Is the pain here?" he would
say, and before: the victim was aware
of what was happening a tooth was
held up to his view.
"I have drawn 2,ooo,644 teeth," he
said shortly before his death, "most
ly Roman," he added. "If you do
not believe me, look under the table."
And there, to be sure, was three
large coffers full of teeth. "And that
is not all, by any means. Many of
my patients drop them into their
pockets as souvenirs."
However, his clients were not all
humble. He took great pride' in
showing the photographs of well
known people, their pictures with au
tograph signatures. Among these
were Leo XIII, and several local cel
ebrites. One day during the pontifi
cate of Pius IX, he was called to the
vatican to draw the tooth of a high
prelate. The Pope, who had never
seen him, had him called to his pres
ence, and after some conversation,
said: "Dear brother, I should like
very much to have a tooth pulled by
"Oh! Holy Father!"
"But it is impossible.".
"Oh! Why?" said the monk, disap
"Because," continued the Pontiff,
tranquilly, "I have none left to pull.'
