YOU know that, business was good in 1912 and the
early part of 1913. Woodrow Wilson and a Dem
ocratic Congress came into power on March 4th, 1913.
In New York, Governor Glynn,
when thousands were working for 10 cents
an hour, sent a special message to the New
York Legislature in which he said:
"Public attention has been forcibly turned to
the fact that a large number of men are un
able to find employment. During the past
Fa.ll and Winter the problem of the unem
ployed has steadily grown more acute. For
the man who is not sincerely anxious to secure
work the public has no sympathy. For the
man who is anxious to work but cannot find
employment the State haa sympathy and a
very real concern."

The Wilson-Underwood tariff bill was passed in
October. 1913. Business immediately began to show
signs of stagnation and recession.
In Ohio, Governor Willis sent a
special message to the Legislature, in which
"I have no desire to dwell on the unhappy
industrial conditions existing in Ohio and other
States. Nevertheless the fact remains that
thousands of able bodied young honest men
and women are out of employment."
When this message appeared in the Ohio
papers it was accompanied with the comment
that the industrial conditions then prevail
ing were worse than at any time since the
Cleveland panic of 1893.
