The opposition to the direct legislation constitutional amendment
is at last beginning to creep out from under cover and from now until
election day we may expect to hear large whines from the lackies of
Special Interest. Big Business is far from reconciled to the encroach
- if the people upon their preserves and the long silence that has
prevailed upon the initiative, referendum and recall measures does
iui meat) that it meant to let the game go by default. The latest
reason advanced why the amendment should be defeated is a gem of
bright, scintillating humor. Certain standpat friends of the state uni
. ersity -the same class of people is always fearful of mob attack upon
some American institution aloncr about election time—fear that if the
people of the state had the initiative, the eastsiders. being jealous of
our westside institution, would use it to harrass and perhaps seriously
cripple our noble school of learning. "For," they say. "it is easy to
cook up a plausible tale which enough thoughtless voters would BWal
low to uo out an igo gunning for the institution."' So all true friends
of the state university are urged to rally to the defense and shove this
governmental nostrum back down the throats of the fanatics who
gave it birth. This plea actually appeared in the columns of the
Seattle P.-l. last Sunday morning. Can you beat it?
For the second time we call the attention of the American Fed
eration of Labor to the fact that members of the Keid faction of the|
Electrical Workers are joining the I. W. W. in large numbers. Is
A. F. ol L. going t<i allow tliis bunch of fighting unionists to be
manently lost to the legitimate American labor movement through
i c< ntiauation of its dilatory tactics and if not, how is it to be stopped?
ihe Reid men most certainly have a grievance and they have been
kicked around from pillar to post year after year by A. F. of L.
conventions and executive board meetings until patience has ceased
to be a virtue. The A. F. of L. should have settled this controversy
ng ago, by strenuous means if necessary, but it should have been
settled. Even tbe expulsion of both factions from the A. F. of L.
til fchey had themselves come to an agreement would have been a
re ['I '-li ! aide course to pursue than to protect one faction within
th" A. F. nf L. and kick the door shut in the face of the other. We
"ti the Pacific coast know the electrical workers to be the best body
'■i fighting men for union principle the sun ever shone upon, tested in
.i ! aid fought industrial battle. It is with the keenest regret
that we see them moving over to the I. W. W. as no possible good
ome to them through such an alliance. But we might as well
i its. They are going over, many of them, because they feel the
I of affiliation of some kind and have despaired of ever gaining
recognition from the A. F. of L. The A. F. of L. claims to be power
less i" 'i" aught else but offer its good services as a mediator, yet re
tains th" McNulty wing. "Why not drop them both? The A. F. of L.
has taken other dual organizations by the scruff of the pants and
shook sense into them, but in this case it seems it is absolutely power
less to pre> nt an organization that was once the flower of the Ameri
can labor movement from going straight to the devil.
Senator Wesley L. Jones has solved the high-cost-of-living prob
lem. Jf batter gets too high, quit eating butter: if meat gets too high,
quit eating meat. The senator takes a place with ''God Knows" Taft
■i- a clever little solver of our economic ills.
Walk up Hewitt avenue most any evening of the week and you
v i'l ueel a hundred or more young gentlemen whose sole occupation
ims to be to preserve the proper hang of a cigarette in the left
corner >f the mouth, with one eye peeled meanwhile for a likely look
!'dollars to doughnuts not one of them will ever cut any
congealed atmosphere on this planet if the foolkiller should pass them
by for three score years. Cigarette fiends and rotation pool sharks
are not the material out of which future greats are made.
When shingles drop in price because of a glutted market, the
shingle owner shuts down his plant. When the market cleans up its
surplus shingles rise to a new price level, the manufacturer starts up
fall capacity and makes back the money lost by reason of the close-
Tl at|s the law of supply and demand. When the mill closes
down ih'- shingle weaver cats up what little he has laid aside and
•ally runs in debt a little. When the mill starts up again he goes
back to work at the same old rate of pay he received before the shut
down. That isn't the law of supply and demand, that's h—l!
Ifi added to their powers of persuasion they had the gift of
clairvoyance and could read what is going on in the heads of the
voters, the candidates these days could dream on in deep content.
Certain gentlemen thoroughout the state are talking enthusi
of wh it will happen when the Panama 'anal is opened. One
nerj declares that it will be the greatest factory for the develop
rm nf of our land resources imaginable. He sees large visions of what
will happen and his forecast is something like this: The state will
ey now lying idle in bank to clear for cultivation our vast
- d off [and. Then she will take the immigrant from
D E trope gently by the hand and lead him to a ten or twenty
acre tract, informing him that if he will work hard and diligently it
be his very own after awhile, providing of course he meets his
expeditioi sly. Thus shall the land wax fat and prosperity
be i rs forevermore. It's a pretty picture and we hate to spoil it
hut we can't help asking why the dickens somebody didn't think of
applying tliis scheme to the land-hugry thousands of city dwellers who
have been for years ekeing out a precarious existence. We don't have
to .j., to Europe to find settlors for our land if inducements of the
kind indicated are held out. Three out of every five men in our
eitii - a-.d towns are land hungry and have been kept off the land
thro gh prohibitive prices and the knowledge of the privations and
hardships that had to be endured while preparing the land fo cultiva
tion. A pohey such as indicated on the part of the state put into
i Ffect any time within the last dozen years would have surprised the
World with its results. With truly remarkable foresight the men who
do big things ; ,e going to turn loos.- this boon upon the thousands of
immigrants who arrive via the Panama canal, with thirty dollars each
in their pockets.
