TO SEEK PEACE AND PURSUE IT.
Theodore Roosevelt said that the sur
est way to prevent war was to prepare
for war. This maxim being correct
there should be no war between great
nations for many years as every great
world power is straining every nerve
to put its military forces on a plane a
little higher than its neighbor. The tax
for naval and military expenditures im
posed by the various governments is
sorely straining the credit of each na
tion. Japan, still bowed down under
the financial pressure of her late war,
is yet steadily adding to her naval ar
mament. ("Ireat Britain and Germany
are straining the resources of their
countries to the utmost in preparation
for a war which their diplomats say
will never come, but which each nation
secretly believes is inevitable. Our own
United States, free from the broils and
cutagleinents ot' continental Europe, in
the midst of a profound peace, is pil
ing million on million into a war fund
from which warships, naval defenses,
land fortifications, shall grow.
Judeon 0. Welllver, writing in Mini
Bey's Magazine ou the subject of
"Growing Expenditures of Our Govern
ment." gives the following trenchant
figures on our military outlay:
"When the Civil War broke out. the
country had almost no fighting ships.
In 1860 the navy cost only ,*1 l.. r »14.(H)0.
In the next five years the first iron
and steel fleet in the world was con
structed, and a blockade of the Atlantic
and Gulf Coasts from Hampton Roads
to the Rio Grande was established and
made effective. Hundreds of vessels
were built, manned, sailed and fought.
That blockade was the most wonderful
thing the North accomplished during the
war. It sealed the South and starved
it into submission. It was one of the
greatest proofs of the efficiency of sea
power that the world has seen. To build
and maintain that great new fleet was
a ' tremendous costly business. In
ISM, the year when the navy cost most,
its bills footed up $122,612,000. And
yet, in 1910, on a strictly peace footing,
the navy will cost the nation $130,935,
"The army of the United States to
tals about 77,000 officers and men. In
1864, the Union, at the climax of the
tivil War. maintained about a million
men under arms, engaged in the expen
sive business of campaigning. The con
tinent resounded to their tread. That
year the army cost $00,791,842; the
navy. $85,725,994. Total cost of army
and navy for 1804. $776,517,436. Now
let that be compared to the military
expenditures for which appropriations
have been made for 1910. They are:
Military Academy 2.531.521
'A simple calculation develops the
tact that tbe military establishment
in 1910, without the suspicion of n war
. loud above the horizon, will cost 52.7
pSff 'cut as anal as it did in 1804.
Campering with 1863 -the year of Yicks
l.urg find (lett.v slung it is found that
military expenditures for 1910 will be
til.6 |>er cent of those for 1863. And go
ing back to 1862, the comparison de
velops that the military budget of 1910
is 03.5 per cent the rost of tie war in
the year of Shiloh and the peninsular
"Evidently the military establishment
ia coming pat her high, for a time of pro
tound peace. It is calculated to stagger
the pocketbook of humanity to consider
iv hut a war would cost -a real war. such
is Japan fought against Russia."
ft is evident that the "white dove
of peace" must be a very valuable bird,
nidging from tbe price we are paying
to possess it.
I list is one way. and the one which
the governments of th«\ world consider
the most effective, to preserve peace.
Rut. after all. is there a better way?
Doesn't tbe burden of all this taxation
and the added burden of actual warfare
with all its attendant horror* fall most
heavily upon tbe shoulders of thos.'
least able to bear them, the Working
I people of tbe world ?
j Nearly all war springs from a spirit
of commercial aggrandizement and the
awful price paid in human lives and hu
man suffering far outweighs tbe com
mercial advantages gained by a con
.(iieiing nation. Isn't it nlsmt time that
the working people refused to take up
aims against their brethren that some
country or people might be exploited
by mnnicd kings nnd trusts? When
the working people of the world make
Up their minds that they will no longer
kill cadi other, pulling nuts out of tbe
lire for somebody else, war will cease.
Which is the better, tbe more humane,
the moral economical way of preventing
strife between nations? To seek peace
with fourteen-inch guns, or with a
siiirit of brother!) love and kindness?
W'c have often heard the manager* of
some corporation say that "they are
going to run their busiest in their own
way." This pompous utterance sounds
fine but when some corporation is al
lowed to run its business in its own way
it makes a very sorry showing. The
switchmen concluded to allow the rail
roads to run their business in their own
way and withdrew from the companies'
employ. They left them strictly alone.
Only once have any of the strikers been
near the yards and that was when they
went to pet their pay. Surely, as far
as the striking switchmen are concerned,
the railroads have had ample oppor-

PREPARES FOR FEDERATION.
Mr. Charles Perry Taylor, secretary
of the Washington State I'Vileration
of Lalsir. visited the harbor cities Tues
day afternoon and evening In the inter
ests of the State Federation of Labor*i
annual convent inn which will be held in
Boqulam, January nth to Hth, 1010.
Mr. Tnylor made a brief visit among his
numerous friends in Aberdeen Tuesday
afternoon, nnd attended the meeting
of the Hoquiam Trades and I.nbor
Oouncil in the evening.
The work of arranging for the coming
convention was practically completed.
Mr. Taylor made a stirring address be
fore the lloquinm central body, review
ing the work of the federation for the
past three years. From 140 unions af
filiated with the Slate Federation three
years ago, the memlwrship has now ex
tended to 210 unions in good standing.
This will insure at least 200 delegates to
the state federation, which will be the
largest in the history of the movement.
Mr. Taylor has organized two central
labor councils and fourteen local unions
within the last four months. Ife paid
a glowing tribute to the women work
ers in the mining towns of the state
and delivered a splendid eulogy on Alice
Lord, of Seattle, head of the movement
to build a home for the waitresses of
that city. Mr. Taylor addressed the
convention for over ninety minutes and
was requested to continue when he
would have stopped. His sincere, earn
est work on behalf of labor is known
to the craftsmen of the harbor before
whom he has spoken the last two con
secutive labor days. Along with Presi
dent Case, Mr. Taylor has lioen a vital
force in the progress of the movement
of the state federation for the past two
years. Grays Harbor Post.
Tlie local union of carpenters is mak
ing elaliorate preparations for an ev
enings enjoyment at their ball in 1-abor
Temple next Thursday evening. The
carpenters do not celebrate very often,
but when they do they make it an occa
sion long to be rememliered. The com
mittee having the entertainment in
hand won't tell all they have up their
sleeve but they let enough drop to justi
fy us in telling the carpenters and their
invited guests that if they don't wander
down in the direction of the Tabor
Temple that night, they'll miss some
thing good. Will there be eating?
Surest thing, you know. And music,
too, and it is whispered tbat there may
be a little dancing for those that enjoy
the art. There will be some orating,
too, as the committee has strings out
for a speaker or two that can talk
unionism straight from the shoulder.
Yon carpenters bring your women folks
and enjoy yourselves.
