The Times believes wav jir,.
too low considering the prio
the laborim: man inuM p.iy I'm

demand is unreasonable .mil i
making against the class of la
boring honest people. We oiic
knew of a boss workman who got
a salary of $," 00 a day who cairn
here from Pennsylvania. Anions
his laborers was u youth who re
ceived f)0 cents a day. When
Christmas came the laws wanted
to return home to spend the hol
idays with his family, but didn't
have the money. The youth who
received 50 cents per day leam
iii!; of this volunteered and loan
ed his "Captain" the necessary
cash to make the trip, but not
neglecting to c!-arge him good
interest. The boy got rich but
the boss didn't.
