BUSINESS MEN DISCUSS TRAINMEN'S TROUBLE
BUSINESS MAN'S POINT OF VIEW.
"I want to say that the railroad men
are mistaken, as to the business men
being entirely on the side of the em
ployers and the corporations. . 7, don't
think that is the way the average
business man takes up a proposition.
He realizes fully that thare are two
sides to such a question, and that the
employer, whether an individual, firm
or corporation is possibly in the wrong.
I know that I speak the sentiment of
a majority of business men, and I wish
that our friends among the so-called
laboring men, for we are all laborers,
would understand it. I am myself a
• laborer just as much as any 1 man in
this room, and he may be doing his
duty just as I am. Now this question
of labor without any doubt, has two
sides. The business man is concernsdin
it so far as his pecuniary interests are
involved, because his business will be
interfered with by the stoppage of
traffic. Every business man in the
Twin Cities, clear to the Atlantic coast,
will be effected by it. We suffer to
gether.— A. Kirk in a speech before
th \nference committee.
