Where Does the Fault Lie?
According to the handbook recently issued by the Richmond Com
mercial Club the city of Richmond has the most satisfactory labor condi
tions of any place in the state. The report is not explicit and does not
set forth whether this condition is satisfactory to the employer or to the
employe so that we must assume that it means that the condition is
In conversations with employers of labor the -absence of strikes and
the absence of representation of organized labor are generally spoken of
as being healthy and satisfactory conditions.
Further statements in the Commercial Club survey of Richmond give
the impression that wealth is widely diffused and equally distributed.
This comes about from the statements that the city of Richmond is
the wealthiest per capita and also that more men own their own homes
here than elsewhere. ,
This suggests that the working men of Richmond are thrifty, sober,
industrious and part of the social fabric not aliens and not transients.
One would therefore expect to find a well paid working force in Rich
mond which had found it easy to save enough to buy homes and to lay
much aside in the savings departments of banks and loan associations.
From the same source the average wage in Richmond seems to be
less than $14 a week. These are the figures turned in to Secretary Jordan.
If these are mistakes the fault lies with those turning in statistics.
For the last three years there has been a great Increase in the ma
terial prosperity of Richmond manufacturers and merchants.
In the last three years The Palladium has heard many complaints
from average citizens about the difficulty of making both ends meet.
Where does the fault lie?
Does it lie with the manufacturer?
Does it He with the merchant?
Does it lie with conditions over which they have no control?
Does It lie with the Individual?
Is there such a thing as the high cost of living?
How far is the scale of living advanced necessarily? "
How many things that were luxuries ten years ago have become luxu
Have the luxuries of ten years ago become necessities today?
If so, what are they?
Have the luxuries of the employing class increased at a higher ratio
than those of the employes?
Is this a local situation?
Is it a state situation.
Is it a national situation?
In what percentages?
Before the year is over this city of Richmond ought to look this thing
squarely in the face and determine what the real state of things is and
what can be done to change it.
The Palldium brings up this question because it believes that it is
the most important one facing every individual in Richmond even as it
is before the whole country.
We believe that it Is from a combination of the things which are
suggested in the above questions.
But to what extent we do not know precisely.
There are no accurate figures at hand.
It seems very certain to us that if the everyday working man finds
difficulty with the purchasing power of his dollar we shall have two things
in Richmond which no one wants to see here.
1. Labor trouble.
2. Mercantile depression.
In other words there will be a fight for the dollar in order to buy the
necessaries of life. There will not be so much bought from local merchants.
These are not healthy conditions. These troubles are being found ev
erywhere and are only just manifesting themselves in Richmond.
Undoubtedly there will be a few men who will say that this paper is
"hurting business." We think that it is self evident that we wish only
true prosperity. .
, This thing came up because The Palladium discovered that living
conditions are at the present time higher in Richmond than in other places.
If this does not hurt the town and breed trouble the experience of
every other town is of no value.

A LAD OF MYSTERY.
"That Awful Boy Jones," Who Tor.
mantad Quaan Victoria.
For a little while about the middle
5f the nineteenth century "that awful
boy Jones" was the torment of Queen
Victoria's life, and bis short career in
public contains a mystery which
would try the mettle of Sherlock
He was a barber's apprentice who in
some unexplained way discovered a
passage into Buckingham palace, with
which be alctie was acquainted. When
he was first found trespassing he was
gently admonished and sent borne.
Soon after be was encountered again
In the paluce. He would not tell how
he obtained access. Again he was sent
home, and again he reappeared.
Once he calmly admitted that be bad
been lodging iu the palace for a fort
night. He had laid snug during the
day, sleeping la the royal apartments,
and at nigbt had wandered from room
to room, helping himself to the food
left over from royal repasts. He had
seen the queen repeatedly and indeed
had never been far from her. ,
The matter was considered so seri
ous that the boy was summoned be
fore a special meeting of the privy
council. He refused to give any ac
count of his secret Soon after he dis
appeared, and It is supposed that he
was removed under state protection.
A BYRON STATUE.
Made For Westminster Abbey, but
Dean Lincoln Refused It.
Many years ago some admirers of
Lord Byron raised a subscription for a
monument to the poet to be placed In
Westminster abbey. Chantrey was re
quested to execute it, but on account
of the smallness of the sum subscribed
he declined, and Tborwaldsen was
then applied to and cheerfully under
took the work.
In about 1S33 the finished statue ar
rived at the customs house In London,
but to the astonishment of the sub
scribers the dean of Westminster, Dr.
Ireland, declined to give permission to
have it set up in the abbey, and owing
to this difficulty, which proved insur
mountable, for Dr. Ireland's successor
was of the same opinion. It remained
for upward of twelve years In the cus
toms house, when (1846) it was re
moved to the library of Trinity col
The poet Is represented In the statue
of the size of life, seated on a ruin,
with his left foot resting on the frag
ment of a column. In his right hand
he holds a style up to his mouth, in his
left a book. Inscribed "Childe Harold."
He is dressed in a frock coat and
cloak. Beside him on the left is a
skull, above which is the Athenian
owl. The likeness is, of course, post
humous. Thorwaldsen was born Nov.
19, 1770, and died on March 24. 1S44.
The article appearing in the Palladi
um of Sunday, August 27, giving the
opinion of C. B. Hunt as to the cause
of the present high cost of living is a
revelation and creates a distinction
that few of us realized as existing.
Mr. Hunt proposes a remedy for the
present high cost of living by pointing
out the cause, which is, that the high
cost of living would never exist were
it not for the capacity of high living
on the part of the poorer classes.
In other words the ordinary wage
earner should be satisfied with an in
ferior article of food to build up the
physical tissues which are torn down
by the arduous nature of his labor.
They have no rights or claims upon
the market for first class provisions.
May I ask you, Mr. Hunt to enlarge
a little further upon your theory by
giving us a dietary classification that
will tonform to your idea as to what
is a fit menu for the poor man's ta
ble? To what stage of purification should
bacon reach to be considered as a sec
ond class commodity and fit for con
sumption by the "poor people?"
To what degree of incubation should
eggs be advanced to be considered un
fit food for the parties of the first
class thereby placing them in the
category of fitness for the "common
What strength to the square inch
should be accepted as a standard with
which to mark the line of distinction
on butter, separating that which is fit
for the rich and unfit for the poor or
unfit for the rich and fit for the poor?
How close to the edge of the table
should cheese be permitted to walk to
determine its unfitness for the table
of the rich? When declared unfit and
is consequently relegated to the table
of the poorer classes, what propor
tion of embalming fluid would you re
commend as necessary to preserve its
form and arrest its progress of decom-
Will you kindly tell us how to deter
mine first from second class meat, as
prices do not indicate the beef that
was killed because of its failure to
stand the tuberculosis test?
How long may pigs' feet be exposed
after being taken from cold storage,
before being placed in line as fitted for
the "common people?"
How are "soup bones" classified?
Is there enough to go round? Are
prices affected by the large demand?
Is the present price of 2c per potato
due to the demand for first class po
tatoes? To think of it. Here we have -been
foolishly led to believe that high
prices was due to monopolistic mani
pulations when the very causes have
been ourselves, that is, if you can get
any one to believe it.
Mr. Hunt seemingly wants to go
the philosopher one better, who says:
"The tragedy of modern civilization is
the sacrifice of human life to the ne
cessity ' of obtaining the physical
means of living." Mr. Hunt would
have us believe that "the tragedy of
modern civilization is the sacrifices the
rich are compelled to make to satisfy
tbe lust for "eats" by the "poor" or
To think again Mr. Hunt is my sug
gestion, and before you make any fur
ther statements for publication just
think of what you would do to a dog
that bites your hand while proffering
to him a home. I do not wish to be
understood as insinuating that the dog
has more intelligence than a human
being but he seldom bites those who
feed him. No further comment is ne
cessary. John C. Genn,
Life is a fight.
If sometimes the battle goes against
you, do not whine. Are you made of
fiber or of pulp? If of pulp, you will
slump down into Innocuous desuetude;
if of fiber, you. will grit your teeth and
Do not go dowu at the first hard
Stand up like a man and take your
punishment without bawling If ad
versity draws a little blood on you or
blacks your eye, that is no reason why
you should throw up the onge.
Grin and bear it
A swelled lip or the loss of a tooth
does not constitute a knockout. If the
wound hurts, smile. And stand and
fight as long as your legs will hold
Play the man.
The world, the flesh and the devil
are trying your mettle. Be game. De
velop your muscles and. make or
break, fight the fight
You cannot always win out.
And sometimes you will get a
solar plerus bloV or a left hauder on
the point of your chin. But
Do not take the count.
While there is an ounce of fight in
you do not lie sprawling, but get up
and go at it again.
General George Washington was
often defeated, but he was never
whipped. Joe Wheeler was as good a
fighter in the Cuban war as in '63,
when he was thirty-five years younger.
Stand up and take your mauling.
When hit don't squeal. Smile and
get under the foe's guard. And force
the fighting! Fate itself gets tired of
always facing a determined man.
When they called on John Taul Jones
to surrender his ship was in splinters,
but he howled back through his trum
pet that he had not yet begun to fight.
If your sword is broken, then fight
with broken sword. If yon fight with
a gun, shoot or give up the gun. And
if you run out of ammunition use the
gunstock as a club.
Vim and vigor and victory all begin
with the name letter.

Illustrates the proverb "Necessity is
the mother of invention." A Basque
regiment was bard pressed by the

knives into the barrels of their mus

ALBERT FRANCOIS LEBRUN.
Albert Francois Lebrun, who holds
the post of colonial minister in the
new French cabinet, was born in Mer-cy-le-Haut,
August 29, 1871. He receiv
ed his preparatory education in the
lyceum at Nancy and later attended
the Polytechnical College and the Na
tional School of Mines. For several
years after finishing his education he
held a professorship in one of the
leading technical schools of France.
About eight years ago he first be
came active in political affairs in his
home district and subsequently was
elected to the Chamber of Deputies.
As a member of the chamber he soon
attracted attention by his readiness
in debate and his wide and thorough
knowledge of practical affairs. His
appointment to the important position
of colonial minister at an age when
most men are -still fighting for recog
nition occasioned little surprise in
French political circles.
