PREWVcNTION VS CU1RID.
Recent strikes at the Urogon Mills
in Anderson and the .ludson Mills in
Greenville we take as but forerunners
of similar but more far-reaching in
cidents of the future. The strikes at
those places assumed larger-. propor
tions than an~y of recent years in this
vicinity and thou1gh tile differences
appear for the time to be settled we
expect trouble to crop, out from time
to time again uptit some large and
concerted movement brings About a
serious situation in the entire textile
industry. Whatever the Immediate
differences have been in the past and
are likely to be in tile future, the
wage scale has been and is going to
be the main source or strife. The
mill owners have it withlin their pow
er to prevent much needless5 suffering
and loss by facing tile 18ssue squtarely
and doing what is right or refusing to
do whbat Is wronxg, before the two
forces comle'into serious conflict. Mill
ofilcials doubtless know how the
wages of thteir employees compare
witht those or empliloyees in trades of
the same1 class, if they do not, they
COuld inform themselves. If the cot
ton nill operative's wages runI~ lower
than it appears thley oughlt to, the
compact organiration of tile mil ofil
cdals wold make piossibule a concerted
effort to remedy tile situation by in
creasing wages over the entire coun
try. If the wagey are as they ought
to be, a campaign of enlightenment
among the operatives themselves
might be begun. The recent pnublish
ed report of President McKissick, of
the GIreenwood cotton null, throws
some light en the question, he having
sublmitted figures going to show that
the wages of laborers in his ill had
increased very materially during the
period of the last fifteen years. To
'ralse the wage scale in textile plants
ali over the country would entall no
loss upon the mills if concerted steps
were taklon, for the rise inl tile cost. of
mnanulfneturle w/ould automatically In
crease the selling price on the goods
theml1meves. Oni tile other hland, ef
