This will relieve some of the southern states, which ran up against a serious obstacle in their effort to secure new settlers and help out the industries in that section, but the rul ing will raise & decided opposition from labor organizations. It is apparent that some other re- sjpmiiWa jpults are coming from the investiga tion of- the car shortage in addition .to the relieving of the situation. The development of this section has been so wonderful and its possibilities so great that even the commissioners are astonished, and attention will be drawn to the Northwest a.11 over the land. Commissioner Harlan is reported a* saying: *r So vast, diverse and multitudinous have been the issues raised in this investigation and so widespreading and comprehensive the information gath ered, that it Is difficult In a word to say just what impression.

Every one reading the message which he sent to congress must have even a greater respect for the chief executive than before. One of the epigrams of the message is worthy of committal by all patriotic citizens. The president says: It is of the utmost importance to all our people that we shall deal with each man on his merits as a man, and not deal with him merely as a mem ber of a given race that we shall judge each man by his conduct and not his color.
