A TRAMP AIRS HIS VIEWS.
He Had Tried Grape Picking at Fresno. His Idea of Life Across the Track and iv General. ?netfto Coast People, He Says, Are Not Sincere au the Chinese Question, tils Experience as Ono of the Unemployed. Yuma Times: He sat on the river bank watching the turbid Colorado roll endlessly by. His clothes and face were soiled with travel; he was a picture of misery and had missed bis train. It is not often that men in reduced circumstances are willing to talk of their condition and this one proved no ex ception to the rule. But after a pull or two from the the Times man's beautiful cut glass flask, a single geezer from which would loosen the tongue iv a graven image, he grew quite loquacious. "Where did I come from?" he re peated in response to the reporter's in quiry. "Well, from Fresno direct, but 1 went to that place from Durango, Colo. You see, when the silver mines begun closing down it affected labor throughout the whole state and many men lost their jobs who were not di rectly connected with silver mining. Of course, if the suspended mines had any hope of starting up soon no exodus would have occurred, but with little hope of au immediate rise in silver the most of us had to screw out. "Everybody in our locality advised us to go to Fresno, Cal., and pick grapes. We had a rather indefinite idea of Fres no or what chances there would be of getting jobs after we got there. How ever there wan little to choose from in the matter and after a tedious trip on the freight trains, a gang of we Durango boys turned up at Fresno ready for the grape picking. "You Pacific coast people are not sin cere in your attitude on the Chinese question. You people in Yuma may be, ior you have Chinese here only in lim ited number and they do not compete in the labor market; but you should see Fresno's Chinatown! 'Across the track,' they call it up there. It is the part of town set aside for the coolies, tin horn hports and ladies of tbe half world. There you can hear tbe interminable babble of tbe Chinese, noisy as a (lock of brant geese, mingled with quarrelings of the demi-monde aud occasionally witness a set-to between a French lady and her roaqucreau, in which the Fresnoan at mosphere is filled with (iiellic expletives and a hundred articles ol feminine toil etry which you wouldn't probably know tho names of, as you have an innocent look about you as though you weren't married." "But bow about tbe grape-picking job," said tbe Tunes reporter; "what had the Chinese and the French lady to do with your employment in the vine yard* ?'' "The latter had nothing to do with it at all," responded the touriet, sadly returning again the beautiful cut-glass flask, "but the Chinese pick tbe Fresno grapes. There is a great deal of bluster and talk on the coast in regard to em ploying white labor to tbe exclusion of Chinees, hut it all ends in talk; the vineyardista attend the labor meeting, make speeches in favor of white labor nnd take a wagon load of Chinese out to their ranches the same night. That ia why I cay the people of the coast are not sincere on the Chinese question. Some of tbe boys got work on the Paige oc Morton ranch west of Tulare, but thet firm was the largest employer of white grape pickers in the San Joaquin valley. While Paige & Morton gave the preference to white pickers, yet they were an exception, and aB a rule tbe vineyardista of the San Joaquin valley prefer Chinese, "Yes, I'm on the road now. Califor nia has a plethora of laboring men and I'm trying to go east. I came into Yuma along with about 40 other hobos, and fared to make the train when the boys went out. We dined at the Wo Lee restaurant en maaae and I got lost in the foot race that occurred between o&riftlvel and the restaurant people im mediately after dinner. The crowd which I was traveling with was a motley one and included several coons. The color line ie not drawn very tightly when one is on the road, for misfortune cre ates strange bedfellows." "Bat why the cause of all this?" said tiie Times man, who waa itching for an opportunity to show off his piety, "W hen the good God gave you health and the Colorano mine owner gave you work, why didn't you cave up your dough instead of blowing yourself in?" 'Whisky is the cause of most of thia distress," eaid the tourist, who began to show signs of excessive thirst by • Pitting cottony. "Booze gets tbe most of us down. As for myself, however, I never tasted a drop of the hellish stuff until you accomplished my seduction a few minutes ago. It was not right for you to throw a couple of geezers of to whisky into me to mako me talk. Thanks, you are too kind ; I never bad a chance to smoke a two-bit cigar before. I will always remember the handsome newspaper man with the beautiful cut glass flask. 1 take the blind tonight for Tucson." This Tear's Bay Crop. T3 The hay crop, on the whole, is large and has generally been secured in good condition, although in some important regions unfavorable conditions caused a reduction of the crop. The condition of the timothy crop is 86 6 aB compared with 93.2 In 1892. The product of clo ver and its quality compare favorably with previous crops. The Farm and Home is probably quite correct in say ing that the present hay crop was gath ered from 43,000,000 acres and exceeds 83 000,000 tons, or about 1,000,000 in crease over last year. Abroad the crop is very much reduced by drought, and a heavy export demand for bay is assured. It will be met this fall by cheap Canadian hay, but when tbat in marketed the surplus of the United States will be in active demand. Slay for export must be pressed into ■ mall baleß, well wired. The London market paid $25 to f.'lO per long ton for best mixed cover (American) during the second week of August, but freights and cbmmissioui? ate up $7 to $12 per ton. Tbe outlet for surplus hay means a continuation of the light imports of Canadian hay into the United States that have characterized the past two years. On the whole it lookß as though bay has never paid better than the new crop bids fair to do. Our hay crop ie worth $I,ooo,ooo.—[lrrigation Age.

A Bird Aroon, via Anger by Piling: Cactus Plant Around Him. Tbe "countryman bird" of New Mex ico ie the natural enemy of the rattle snake, and will follow it all day to catch it asleep and then kill it. Lute Wilcox, a well-known Denver gentle man, familiar with many phases of western life, related to me the following incident, oayn a writer in the St. Louis Gloße-Deraocrat. He. together with Harry Kelley of Las Vegas, were on a wool-buying trip near l'uerto de Luna (gate of the moon), in the PecOß valley New Mexico. "We were suddenly at tracted," said Mr. Wilcox, "by the actions of three of these countryman birds. They Eomevhat resemble au English Bnipe, bill* three or four inches long, body about tbe size of a prairie chicken, but with long legs. These birds had found a rattlesnake asleep and were preparing to kill it. It was most interesting to watch their proceed ings. The birds scratched looae a lot of prickly pear, and by the use of tbeir feet and bills built a" wall of this cactus plant around tho coil cf the sleeping snake. After they had a good layer of this prickly pear around the rattlesnake they used their bills to throw small sticks ou tbe snake and thus awoke it. The snake soon discovered that it was surrounded by this thorny stuff, and would not crawl over it. In ite anger the snake ran ita fangs into its own body nnd died of its own poison. Tbe rattle snake, when wounded or thus enraged, often kills itself. It waa one of the strangest 1 sights I ever witnessed on thw frontier to see the systematic methods of the countryman biid. Tbe cowboys in the southwest often use hair ropes, made of the manes and tails of horses, to guard against rattlesnakes. Neither ineects nor reptiles will crawl over a hair rope. The cowboys, for this reason, often stretch a hair lariat on the ground around their camp, and Bleep safely." Are rattlesnakes good to eat? Those who have tried it say that they taste as delicious as frogs' legs. They are cleanly in their habit." and kill their own prey before devouring it. While not a com mon diet, it is v fact, nevertheless, that some people have eaten rattlesnakes and pronounce them very good meat. A cowboy informed me that he bad a "pard"onthe trails who was fond of rattlesnake meat, and said it tasted like frog legs. When you wish a good, tender rattlesnake broil or fry you must, in kil ling the snake, use due precaution againet letting it bite or fang itself. When Bkinned tbe meat looks white and tender. A common, and probably the safest way of capturing a rattlesnake alive, is to press a forked stick over tbe head and hold it to the ground until a string can be tied around it or it is placed in a box. The skin of a rattle snake often has quite a brilliant color, and I have often seen them worn as hat bands on the western sombrero. SAN FELIPE BEACH. The Pleasure Senkor'e Paradlae on the Oulf Coast. Godfrey Sykes and the Huesey broth ers returned yesterday from an extended trip to San Felipe, says the Yuma Times. Mr. Sykes went there for rheu matic troubles and was greatly bene fited by hot sulphur baths taken in springs in that locality. He is loud in praise of San Felipe as a health resort; it having a beautiful sand beach, excel lent fishing and hunting, clams, oysters and turtle, a fine climate, the beat of yachting, fresh water on the beach, and tbe hot sulphur baths referred to. Mr. Sykes and party consider San Fe lipe tbe best health resort they have ever visited, apd;they have traveled ex tensively. Enclosed by a bay, San Fe lipe furnishes ft retreat from the rough water on the outside and the mountains shield it from the harsh winds of the northwest;. Altogether, Sin Felipe iB V ulna's future teajj}ile resort. On the trip hack tbe party had oppor tunitiee of displaying their seamanship in a stiff gulo which brought them from San Felipe to the mouth of the river in seven hours, which waa getting through the water at the rate of about 10 miles an hour. As tbey passed Montague the island was only two feet out of water and the tide Btill rising. A.t Lerdo, on the way up, the party encountered the late rise of Salt river. This was a sight for the blind, for the reason that if it could not be seen it could be emelled. The Salt river, ac every one knows, runs a saturated solu tion of soil, and the last rise was al most aa thick as pancake batter. Tbia decoction was a bit too rich for the large Colorado fish, called in irony, "salmon," the result of which was that they died by tons; tne bars and banks being lined with their dead bodies. The Sykes crowd had an intimation that something was wrong long before they reached the dead fish belt. The wind blowing down the river brought with it perfumes suggestive of Egypt after the plagues. The atmosphere smelled like an euioalmer'e shop with a glue fac tory next door. The party could use river water only by digging shallow wells on the sand bars. On the trip down the party arrived at the mouth of the Hardy at the time when the full moon bore was due. It wae their intention to enter the lower mouth of the Hardy and tie up to the bluff bank. With this in view the party passed the upper mouth and found on their arrival below that tbe mouth was covered with a sand bar. As tbe bore was then rounding the bend below there was nothing le.lt to do but ride it out. Tbey struck the wave in the middle of the river and estimated its height at six feet. A serieß of smaller waves followed, but the paaty pulled through without damage except tbe shipping of consider able water. The Hussey brothers will re main in Yuma for some time, and Mr. Sykes will return to Flagstaff to look after some horses which are reported to have been stolen during bis absence. Pruning as a Stimulant. Claremont News: There is always a balance moie or less perfect between the root system and the top growth of a tree. The more vigorous and luxuriant the roots, the larger the growth of trunk and branches. Now, by removing a por tion of the branches as in pruning we disturb the balance, and the effect is that the tree makes special effort to restore the balance by making extra growth. Or, rather, the real explana tion is tbat the plant food sent up by the roots is directed into fewer channels, and thereby concentrated to the advan tage of the branches left on the tree. But the effort to utilize the superabun dant supply of food has, besides, a stim ulating effect on the vitality of the whole tree leading to the more vigorous per formance of all its functions. This may not be scientifically provable, but we believe it to be tbe fact. Farmers and liorsnmen—Hall's Cream Salve for horses will keep the dies off a sore, heal barbed wire cuts, cures old sores.

[The H«rm.-> ind»r this heading- prlnti com munication*, hut dies not assume respond bllily for the sentiments expressed ] The Prohelm uf the Unemployed. Km tors Herald : Tbe fact that we have among us any who are willing to work and cannot obtain it, indicates an absence of correct industrial conditions. We have been working in away to bring about that which we complain 01. It is not an accident. The helpless ness of millions of idle workers is the direct result of antecedent causes. As cause precedes effect, and like pro duces like, it follows that aB present conditions are bad, tbe causes contribut ing to that result must be correspond ingly bad. No intelligent answer can be made to the question of what to do, until we trace far back into our present Bocial and economical structure and examine its laws from an ethical and equitable standpoint. But of one thing we may be sure at the outset and save ourselves much time and pains. This question can not be settled by any tem porary measures to bridge these un willing mendicants over a rough place, for the unemployed have soma to stay, or to stay as long as no fundamental change is made, providing for the Bur plus labor that iB a natural product of our present industrial system. The great problem must be solved, not laughed down, or sneered at. It cannot be dispelled by free music; it cannot be sung or swayed away; it will not die if we intend to ignore it. A critical analysis of the nature of our working contract will reveal a fun damental error from which most of the Bocial perplexities radiate. It lies bid den in tbat contract, unobserved for ages, but it is tbe poisonous thorn that rankles in tbe side. Let us keenly scrutinize the terms of the contract. A man, working for an employer, makes a pair of shoes for $1. The cost of the material is. aay $1, and the employer sells them for $1. Then the worker, in order to obtain a pair of shoes for him self, mußt make four pairs to get money enough to buy one pair. Now, as all workers are working un der this system, it is obvious that tbey cannot buy back their own products, and all the goods thus made cannot be sold. This, of course, tends to cause manufacturers to limit production, for they can sell only to those who are yet able to buy. And by this restriction they need a less number of workers. .Those thrown out of work will be less able to purchase than tbey were when they received some kind of wages. The large number of people who do uot re ceive wages directly, as lawyers, physi cians, artists, actors, hotel keepers, etc., do continue to purchase tbe diminish ing products of labor, bnt their own power to buy is ou tbe wane, be cause their business is affected by a decline in the demand for their services by the workers, workers who must dis pense with everything not absolutely essential to a bars existence, and who cannot therefore patronize the profes sional classes. Tbis instruction acts and re-acts throughout all branches of industry, a loss of trade in one being fol lowed by a loss in all others, and both business and professional life becomes stagnant. The present industrial sys tem is now arraigned for tbis basic fault. Tbe industrial contract is inequitable. It is manifestly unjust that tbe large majority of the world's population dhould be deprived of any portion of the products of their labor, be tbat part great or small. That which a man by his own life force creates, is his and not anotherß. If, under the contract, he creates something and does not receive it, or receives something without giving of bis own individual effort or equiva lent, the industrial equilibrium ia awrack and tbe law of cause and effect brings discord in tbe industrial realms. That discord is made objective by the presence of the enormously rich and the awfully poor, the unemployed wbo have nothing and no prospect. We have now traced back to the first, cause of the social evil. Can we logically hope to solve the problem without removing the prime factor? Will free soup or fresh air excursions change tbe unjust character of tbe in dustrial contract? But although we have seen the source from which these undesirable results flow, there are yet other minor causes undiscovered that demand our attention. The paramount incentive to production under tbis pres ent system ia profit to tbe employer. The greater difference between the labot cost of an article and its selling price, tbe more profit there ia to him. Hence be ia directly interested in every possi ble lowering of wages. Tbie ie done mainly in two ways. First, by the competition between actual workers and surplus workers that tends to bring wages down to a bare living, and second, by tbe use of machinery that displaces human labor, only because it adds more to profit. It asks no wages and will not strike, and is, in short, a better and cheaper servant than the human one. The machines are in possession of the employers because if, as has been shown, tbe work ers are unable to buy tbe necessities of life, they will, of course, not be able tc buy the machines, and they will evei contribute to the success of the employ er and to the ill-fortune of the workers. As improvement follows improvement, laborers are gradually but surely becom ing a superfluity, and the army of the unemployed grows mors destitute and helpless. By the working of our pres ent industrial contract, tbe employers, as a class, cannot fail to accumulate wealth, and must inevitably become richer and richer. So, having posses sion of the wealth already created, the; can dictate terms upon which more wealth may be made, and tbe worken who must live some way, have no alter native, and are thus forced to accept whatever is offered. It will now be eeerj tbat the contract has nothing of free dom in it to far as the workers are con cerned. The immense advantage that wealth gives over poverty in a'lowing leisure for education and the sharpening of tbe business wit, is used by the em ploying classes in making laws govern ing wealth production. Herein is the secret of protective tar iffs, corporation and banking laws anc* all class legislation. Laws made by th: rich will, in their very nature, be for tbe benefit of the rich. And this enormous power further accelerates their accumu lation!. Since their interests are oppo site, laws thus passed will be detriment al to tbe workers, and their conditio! will become more and more unfavorable A discovery in mechanics, new methodt of manufacture, advanced modes o transportation, etc., will always increase the vast hordes of the unemployed. Thii indicates that the problem under consid eration iB far more serious and preaeiut than is generally realized. Now that the maze has been partially cleared away foi a square look at the situation, let ua ase the question: "What shall we do with the unem plcyed?" and answer: "Employ them.' Organised twisty to fMpoaaible foi the error in the industrial contract, and are, by the laws of justice, compelled to correct that error. "Bnt his the state the right to assist the individual?" It does co now by schools, libraries, parks, courts and police, all of which were once in private hands. If the etate has a right to do any thing at all, that light must be to do what ia most necessary. The state now makes it easy for an individual to geta drink of water, is water more essential to life than bread? Tbe state furnishes books and papers to the individual. Are they | more necessary than clothing and shelter? Now, we have Bbown that the private employer bas discarded human labor for the machine, never again to be resumed as long as profit is the object of production, and it the individual will not employ the idle tbe state must or they will remain permanently idle. In deed, the idle are of the state and have a right to employ themselves! The life of tbe individual is protected by the state from any enemy invading from without. Ie there not as much reasou for a protection from a more subtle and dangerous enemy within? The two propositions are logically tho same. Aud since the Btate haß that right it has the obligation, and should assist the unemployed in creating ior tbemeelves that which they need the most. What is that—park?, roadß and street cleaning? No; they are suffering lor bread, meat and clothing. But some may say it would bankrupt the govern ment to support all the unemployed Incorrect. They are able and willing to cieate by their own labor, thus support ing themselves at no expense to the state beyend a working capital, which could soon be reimbursed. A policy of public almsgiving would be open to that objec tion, as it would not only add to the al ready enotmnua burden of taxation, but would in no wise stop the breed,ng o* tbe unemployed. We are now seeking for a solution and not a palliation. It may be urged that such employ ment would compete with private pro ducers and cause fresh trouble. This is ! also incorrect. Tbe unemployed cannot purchase end must not be considered ac an available market. If they were al lowed to produce what they consumed tbey would not affect private enterprise, either favorably or unfavorably, and in putting the unemployed to work in this way society would correct (he basic er ror of tbe wage system iv giving to the producer the full product of hia labor, minus operating expenses. The law of eternal justice demands this and society must grant it if she would retain her in tegrity. This new field of emp oyment would present an attraction in comparable to the present wage system, end aB rapidly aa room could be made for new workers, the ranks of wage labor would be depleted, and public employ ment would grow proportionately. Producing for themselves, they would : then, for tbe first time, be able to buy j back tbeir own products and over-pro doction would be an impossibility. By i the use of machinery their labor would be madu more productive, and they could then reduce hours without lessen ing their income or without creating another class of surplus laborers. If tbe state were to do this the individual worker would have a choice. If be did not like the terms offered him by a pri vate employer he could enter public production. If private employment suited him best be would remain there. Gardening, coal mining, lumber, recla mation and cultivation of arid lands, the manufacture of the common needs of borne life, the building and operat- | ing of railroads and telegraphs would be j first in order. Payments to be made iv legal tender currency issued againet labor performed. Other lines of indus try would be introduced as fast as a due regard to a thorough system would permit, and the problem of the unem ployed would be solved. W. C. B. Ranholph, 426 Crescent aye.
