(Continued' From Page 1.)
gatjtiered: at Fargb to observe Labor
day! Rodsevelt's speech follows
It is.trop.of wa^workers, as of all
other cit.ijteps, that /most of the prog
rese must depend i^P9h their own ini
tiative £nd their otfn efforts. Never
theless, t$gr« are three different fac
tors in thip':progress. There is, first,
the,share which the man's own indi
vidual qualities must determine. This
is the most important of all, for noth
ing can supply the phoe of individual
capacity. Yet. the^e are two other fac
tors also of prime importance name
ly, what can be done by the wage
workers in cooperation with one an
other, and what c^n be done by gov
ernment—that is, by the instrument
through which all -the people work
collectively., Wages ^t(d other most
important conditions of employment
must refhain largely Outside of gov
ernment control must be left for ad
justment liy, •'free contract between
employers and wflge earners, subject
to legislation which will prevent con
ditions which compel man, or woman
to accept wages representing less, than
will ensure deceqt living.
to attempt to leave this merely
to individual action means the abso-*
lute destruction^ Of individualsim for
where the individual ic so weak that
he, perforce, has to accept whatever
a strongly organized body chooses to
give hini, .his individual liberty be
comes a mere sham and mockery. It
id indispensably necessary, in order to
pr^erve to the largest degree oui sys
tem of individualism, that t^tere should
be effective/and. orgaftizeid collective
Action. The wage earners must ^ct
jointly, through ,'the process of col
lectivebargainlng.ln .great industrial
enterprises. Only thus can they t»e put
upon a! plane of economic equality with
their oobporate etaployers. Only thus
is freedom of contract cmade. real
thing 'ancl' hot a mere legal fiction.
Th^re laria occasioifaL occupations
where this is not. necessary but
speaking broadly, it is necessary
throughout* the great 'world Of organ
ized industry, i' believe this, practice:of
Collectively bargaining, effective only
through shch organizations as the
trade unipns, to have, iffen one of the
most pb'tent forces iik.tbe past century
in^om^tttg th« progress of the wage
earners and in securing larger sOcisl
progress for humanity.' I- believe in
the principle of organized labor
and in the praeti.ee of collective
-bargaining, not merely as a desirable
thing for the $age earners, but as
something, which has been demon-"'
etrated. to%e essential In the long run
tojth'efr permanent progress.
T.abor Organizations Necessary.
This does n^t mean tbat unequiv
ocally indorse any or alk-practices that
labor 'Organizations may happen to
adopt, or any or ail principles, that
they may choose to enunciate. Labor
organisations have the- weaknesses
and defects common to all other forms
of human organizations, fiometimes
they act very well, and* sometimes
they act very badly and I am for
them, when iliey act well,\and I am
against them when" they act badly. I
believe that their existence is a ne
cessity 1 believe that their aims and
purposes are generally good and I
believe thai ali of them have occa
sionally miide mistakes, and that some
of them have been guilty of wrong
doing. Jtist in so far as they are
strong and effective they tempt de
signing men who seek to control them
for their own interests, and stimulate
the desires of ambitious leaders who
may be clever, crooked men, or who
may be honest but visionary and fool
ish. In other words, in treating of
labor unions, as in treating of corpor
ations. oi*' of hmanity generally, we
will do v^ell to remember Abraham
Lincoln's saying that "there is a deal
of human nature in mankind."
Labor, Should Heed Criticism.
Outside critics should appreciate
the necessity of organized labor, and
understand'and sympathize with what
is good in it. instead of condemning
it indiscriminately. On the other
hand, those within its ranks saouu.
fearlessly analyze the criticisms di
rected against it and ruthlessly elimi
nate from the practices bf its organi
zation those things which justify such
criticism and attack. This is the path
not. only of right, but of wisdom and
safety.' Public opinion in the United
States is daily becoming more alert
and more intelligent and more force
ful: and, no organization, whether
trades union or corporation, whether
industrial or non-indtistrial, can en
dure or permanently amount to a so
cial force if it does not harmonize
with a wise and enlightened public
opinion. Hitherto we Americans have
been over-occupied with materiat
things, and have, neglected to watch
the play of the social forces about us.
But now we are awakening from that
indifference and every form\of or
ganization representing an important
economic, political or social force
must undergo ,a closer scrutiny tnan
ever before. viL.-/
The Strike" Question.
I think that the next quarter of a
century will be Important politically
in many ways: and in none more so
tban in the labor »movement. Not only
are the benefits of labor organizations
more clearly understood than ever be
fore, but any shortcoming or vice dis
played.in connection therewith is also
more Clearly understood and more
quickly resented. The public is grow
ing mojre and more to understand
that, in a contest between employer
and employe—a corporation and a
trades union—not only the interests
of the contestants, but the interests "pf
the third party—the public—must be
considered./ Anything like levity in
provoking a strike, on the one hand or
on the other, is certain more and
more to be resentod by the public.
Strikes are sometimes necessary and
proper sometimes they represent the
only way in which, after all other
.methods have been exhausted,, it is
possible for the laboring man to* stand
for his rights but it must be clearly
understood that a strike is a matter
of last resort, and of course, violence,
lawlessness and mob rule must be
promptly and sternly dealth with, no
matter what £he cause may be that
Public Sympathy and Strikes.
Our social organization is too com
plex for us to fall quickly J0 condemn
those who, with levity or In a spirit of
wanton brutality, bring about Mr
reaching and disastrous interference
with its normal processes. The public
sympathizes cordially with any move
ment for a good standard of living and
for pioderate hours of employment. (I
personally, for instance, cordially be
lieve in an eight-hour day, and in one
day in seven for complete rest.)
Where men and women are worked
under harsh and intolerable conditons,
and can secure no relief without a
strike, or, indeed, where the strike is
clearly undertaken for things which
are vitally necessary—and then only
as a last resort—the public sympathy
will favor the wage workers but it
will not favor them unless such condi
tions as these are fulfilled. Therefore
it is becoming more than ever import
ant. that the labor movement should
combine steady, far-seeing leadership
with discipline and control in its ranks.
Dishonest leadership is a curse any
where in American life, and nowhere is
it a greater curse than inlp.bor move
ment. If there is one lesion which I
would rather teach to my fellow Amer
icans than any other, it is to hound
down the dishonest man—no matter
what his condition—and to brush aside
with impatient contempt the creature
who only denounces dishonesty when it
is found in some special social stratum.
There are dishonest capitalists, dis
honest la.bor leaders, dishonest law
yers,, and dishonest business 'men
dishonest men of great wealth and dis
honest .poor men: and the man _whp is
a genuine reformer will decline to
single out any one type for exclusive
denunciation, but will fearlessly attack
the dishonest man as such, whenever
and wherever he is to be found.
AH that can.properly be done should
be done by all of us to help upward
the standard of living and, to. improve
the ability of the average man to reach
that standard. There are still in the
United States great masses of skilled
and unorganized labor, whose condi
tions of work and living are harsh
Protection for Workman.
It is not merely the duty of the
wage earner, but it is also the duty of
the general public, to see that he has
safe and healthy conditions undei1
which to carry on, his work. No worker
shpuld. be compelled, as a condition of
earning his dally bread, to risk his life
and limb, or be deprived of his health,
or have to workvunder dangerous and
bad surroundings. Society owes the
worker this because It owes as much
to itself. He should not be compelled
to make .this* a matter of contract he
oqght not to«be left to-fight alone for
decent1conditions? In this respect His
protection in the plfa.ee where he .works
should be guaranteed by the law of the
land. In other words, he should be pro
tected .during his working hours
against greed and carelessness on the
part of unscrupulous and thoughtless
employers, just as outside of those
working hours both ne,-and his em
ployer are' protected in their lives and
property against the*, murderer and
^Thls opens a vitally important field
of legislation to the national govern
ment and tol the state alike..
In what Is called ''employer's liabil
ity" -legislation' other ind'ustntalcoun
tries have accepted the principle that
the industry must near the monetary
burden of its human sacrifices, and
that th"e employe who is injured shall
have a fixed and definite sum. The
United States still proceeds on an out
worn and. curiously improper principle,
in accordance with which it has too
often been held by the courts that the
frightful burden of the accident shall be
borne in its entirety by the very per
son least able to bear it. Fortunately,
in a number of states—in Wisconsin
and in New York, for instance—these
defects in our industrial life are either
being: remedied or else are being made
a subject of intelligent study with a
vitew to their remedy. In New York a
bill embodying moderate compensa
tion for accidents 'has already been
passed. Other states. will undoubtedly
follow in the same path.
Women and Children.
Women and children should, beyond
all ciuestion. be protected and in their
cases there can be no question that
the (government should act. They
should be particular objects of'our so
licitude and they should be guarded in
an effective fashion against the de
mands of a too greedy commercialism.
On my recent trip in the neighborhood
of Scranton and Wllkes-Barre every
one I apoke to agreed as to the im-.
mense improvement that had been
wrought by the effective enforcement
of the laws prohibiting children under
the age of fourteen years from work
ing. and prohibiting women from
working more tban ten hours a day.
Personally. I think ten hours too long,
but, be this as it may, ten hours a daj*
was a great advance.
Approves Labor Planks.
Among fhe planks in the platform of
the American Federation of Labor
there are some to which I very
strongly subscribe. They are:
.1. Free schools free textbooks, and
2. A work-day of not more than
3. Release from employment one
day in seven.
4. The abolition of the sweat-shop
5. Sanitary inspection of factory,
workshop, mine and home.
6. Liability of employers for injury
to body or loss of life.
(T regard the demand in this form
as Inadequate. What, we need is An
automatically fixed compensation for
all injuries received by the employe
in the course of his duty, this being
infinitely better for the employe, and
more just to .the employer. Thje only
sufferers will be^lawyers of that unde-.
sirable class which exists chiefly by
carrying on lawsuits of this nature.)
7. The passage and enforcement of
rigid anti-child labor laws which will
cover every portion of this country.
Similar laws limiting women's labor
should be enacted.%
Suitable and plentiful playgrounds
for children in all -the cities.
Inasmuch as prevention is always
best, especial attention should be paid
to the prevention of industrial acci
dents by passing laws requiring the
of safetv devices. At

There will not be a southern buyer
of prominence in the land that I will
not notify of this big southern horse

advertised as a special, at the same
loss of life and Iamb among the indus
trial workers of the United States is
simply appalling. and every year
equals in magnitude the killed arul
wounded in a fair sized war. Most of
these casualties are preventable and
our legislative policy should shaped
accordingly. It would be a good idea
to establish in every city a museum of
safety devices from which the workers
could get drawings of them and Infor
mation as to hdw they could be ob
tained and used.
Two Liability Bills.
The matter of compensation for in
juries to employees is, perhaps more
immediately vital than any other. The
report of the commission which has
begun to look into this matter on be
half of the New York legislature is
well worth reading. The bill presented
by the Federatlpn of Labor in .Wiscon
sin on this subject seems excellent. In
all dangerous trades the employer
should be forced to share the burden of
the accident so that,the shock may be
born by the community as a whole.
This would be a measure of Justice in
itself and would do away with a fruit
ful source of antagonism between em
ployer and employed.
Our ideal should be a rate of
Con Solve Ali Problems.
Then action can be taken at once on
thtf particular subject concerned, while
the commission immediately proceeds
to investigate another. By these means
log rolling would be avoided and each
subject treated on its merits, while
there would be no such shock to gen
eral industry as is implied in the pres
ent custom of making sweeping
changes in the whole tariff at once.
'Finally it should be the duty of
some governmental department, or
bureau to investigate .the conditions in

see that the laborers really are getting

Sioux Falls Tariff Speech.
Col. Roosevelt in his tariff speech at
Sioux Falls, said:
As a means toward the attainment
of its end In view we have as yet de
vised nothing in any way as effective
as a tariff commission. There should
bte a commission of well paid experts,
men who should not represent any in
dustry, who should be masters of their
subjects, of the highest character, and
who should approach the matter with
absolute disregard of every outside
consideration. These men should take
up in'succession each subject with
which the tariff deals and investigate
the conditions of production here and
abroad: they should find out the facts,
not merely accept the statements of in
terested parties, and they should re
port to congress on each subject as
soon as that subject has been covered.
