OFFICIAL PAPER OF SANTA FE COUNTY.
The New Mexican is the oldest new spaper in New Mexico. It Is sent to
every postoffice in the Territory, and has a large and growing circulation
among the Intelligent and progressiv people of the Southwest.
CONSTANCY OF EMPLOYMENT.
The question of the unemployed is
perhaps the most pressing problem in
every country. Not so much those un-l
employed from choice, but of those
who can not find work though willing
to work; those who are kept from
work by illness, or by other causes
not in their control. Even in small
towns like Santa Fe, the large percent
age of unemployed people is a men-;
ace to prosperity and to civic ideals, j
The census bureau is furnishing sta
tistics on which to base systematic
effort to solve the problem.
A preliminary statement of the num
ber of wage earners employed each
month in the manufacturing industries
of the country at the time of the thir
teenth United States census was is
sued today by Director Durand of the
bureau of the census, Department of
Commerce and Labor. It Includes a
summary of the figures for several In
dustries showing the greatest varia
tion in the number employed.
The census inquiry called for the
number of wage earners employed on
the 15th of each month or other lepre
sentative day of the month. From
these figures the average number em
ployed for the year .was calculated by
dividing the sum ot the number? re
ported each month by twelve. This
average represents the number that
would be required to perform the work
done if all were constantly employed
during the. year. The figures, howev
er, shpw that for some industries
there is a large difference in the num
ber employed during certain seasons
of the year,
"The average number of wage earn
ers employed in all Industries during
1909 was 6,615,046; the largest num
ber 7,006,853, was employed In No
vember; and the smallest number,
6,210,063, In January, equal to 8.6
per cent of the maximum. There was
a fairly constant increase each month
from January to November, and the
totals indicate that for the entire
country there was great regularity in
the number employed during the year.
However, in some branches, especial
ly the seasonal industries, there was a
The largest number ot wage earners
was reported for the manufacture of
lumber and timber products. This in
dustry includes the logging camps,
saw, shingle, and planing mills, the
manufacture of lath, cooperage stock,
sash, doors, blinds, interior finish, and
other mill work; also the wooden packing-box
factories. There were em
ployed on the average during the
year, in all these industries taken to
gether 695,019 wage earners.- The
largest number 739,160, was reported
for November, and the smallest, 649,
239, for January, equal to 87.8 per
cent of the maximum. The timber
camps show a variation from 222,564
In December to 170,587 In July, equal
to 76.6 per cent of the maximum. The
active season in the woods' covers
different months in the various sec
tions of the country, and if the op
erations of the timber camps in each
geographic division are considered
separately, there is a much wider
variation in the number employed. In
the sawmills the greatest number,
372,000, was employed in October, and
the smallest, 308,000, in January,
equal to 82.8 per cent of the maximum.
The next largest number was em
ployed in foundries and machine shops
for which there was an average of
531,011 wage earners reported. The
greatest number, 597,234, was employ
ed in December and the smallest num
ber, 482,080, in January, equal to 80.7
per cent of the maximum.
Cotton factories rank third, the
average number of wage earners be
ing 378,880. The greatest number,
383,529, was reported for December
and the smallest, 374,433, for January,
equal to 97.6 per cent of the maximum.
Employment was thus more regular
than in any of the other large indusL
Repair shops of steam railroads
form the fourth in order, the- average
number of wage earners being 282,174.
The geatest number, 301,538, was em
ployed in December and the smallest,

of the maximum. s .

CIVILIZE THE NATIONS,
Through the courtesy of the pub
lishers, the New Mexican is in re
ceipt of a beautifully printed and ar
tistically illustrated brochure by Mrs.
Elmer Black; a vice president of the
Third National Peace Congress. The
essay is entitled "Civilize the Na
tions," and makes a plea for arbitra
tion and world peace, which is partic
ularly timely since next Sabbath wul
be celebrated "Unity Sunday,"
throughout the United States. The
author discusses her subject from a
viewpoint distinctly broad and origi
nal and thus contributes to the over
whelming public sentiment that will
before long make war impossible, des
pite the declarations of Roosevelt's
that the arbitrament of war alone can
decide differences that spring up
among nations, although long ago,
civilization put down the sentiment
that questions of honor or any other
dispute among individuals, must be
decided in the courts and not with
sword or pistol.

For the woolen and worsted industry
employment was somewhat less regu
lar than in the cotton mills; there was
an average of 168,722 wage earners,
the largest number, 173,943, was re
ported for November and the smallest,
15S.318, for January, equal to 91 per
cent of the maximum. In the manu-
facture of boots and shoes there was
an average of 198,297; the largest
number, 207,452, was reported for De
cember and the smallest, 190,382, for
May, equal to 91.8 per cent of the
maximum. The number reported for
the minimum month was 75.8 per cent
of the number employed in the maxi
mum month in the iron and . steel

industry; 91.8 per cent in the men's
clothing, and 80.6 per cent; in the

to take the lead in the great move
ment for peace and the cessations of
war, none to which the other powers
more naturally look for such leader
ship than the United States. Her po
siton, her traditions, her freedom
from entanglements and her very
compositon of states living in har
mony together, make her the one
great nation qualified and recognized
for the mission.
"The movement is centuries old;
but the culmination point was reach
ed a year ago when the president of
the United States promulgated a
series of treaties with Great Britain
and France, which forever settle the
question of international arbitration
and compel these nations, in the event
of contentions, to take their controv
ersies before a joint high commission
and adjucate them, just as two con
tending citizens of a civilized country
must adjust their difficulties in . a
court of law.
"There is danger, grave danger, that
the very heart of these treaties is to
be cut out; that the very purpose
they are designed to serve will be vi
tiated by those in whose power their
sanction lies." : ,
The author traces the growth of the
peace idea from remotest times to the
present and concludes with an appeal
and a plea for compulsory arbitration.
A BEAUTIFUL ADDRESS
At the dedication of the Masonic
temple at Roswell, District Attorney
L. O. Fullen delivered an address,
which after appropriate words of in
troduction, he declared was not his
own, but that of Judge A. A. Freeman,
ana had been given to the world
1 years before but was worthy of being
I repeated. The New Mexican has re
I ceived a copy of this address all the
way from Victoria, British Columbia,
the present home of Judge Freeman,
I and the New Mexican agrees with Mr.
Fullen that the address really was
worth while. Lofty thoughts are
clothed in language pure and poetic.
One cannot but help admiring the
mind that conceived such ideas and
the soul that poured out its faith
in humanity in such measures.
From it can be culled many quota
tions, many a gem that might serve
as a beacon light in periods of ? tresa
and doubt. One may be a Mason or
not a Mason; one may believe in Ma
sonry or one may oppose its- doc
trines or its practices, but no onei
can find in that address any trace of
any thought that is not worthy of the
