THE WORKINGMAN A STOCKHOLDER.
Andrew Carnegie takes a hopeful view with respect to the future of the
laboring man. He believes that in the industrial organization of the fu
ture, the laborer and the capitalist are to join hands in the ownership and
control of great industrial enterprises. The means by which this object
is to be attained is to be found in the joint stock company. Workingmen
are to become shareholders in the enterprises in which they are employed.
Of course, there is nothing new or novel in this plan, by which a more
harmonious relation is ought to be effected between the capitalist and
laborer, but the suggestion of the feasibility of the plan by such a suc
cessful industrial organizer as Mr. Carnegie will have the effect of stimu
lating interest and prompting action in such undertakings. Mr. Carnegie
Is a close student of human nature and his experience in business organ
ization has led him to conclude that this is the most feasible method of
bringing about a more harmonious adjustment of the relations between
capital and labor.
President Roosevelt, in hie recent annual message, gave expression to
the same Idea. If the workingman has an immediate interest in the enter
prise with which he is connected, he will naturally take a greater interest
in the success of the particular enterprise, and, besides, he will not be so
apt to give heed to idle complaints and rumors which are naturally inci
dent to the conduct of any business enterprise.
It might be noted that efforts have not been made to interest employes
or others with small capital in making investments in industrial stocks in
America. Many railroads have preferred to have their stocks and bonds
held by the small investors in Europe rather than in America. To effect
this they,have offered bonds for purchase in smaller denominations in
Europe than in America. It will be a good omen for the industrial peace
of the future and for the honest conduct of great industrial, enterprises
when efforts are put forth to place industrial stocks in the hands of those
who are contributing their labor to make the particular enterprise suc
cessful. If the suggestions of Mr. Carnegie and President Roosevelt and
other students of social conditions were acted upon more frequently, much
of the talk of war between labor and capital would cease.

AWT PRO
POSED BOND ISSUE
J. J. HILL SAYS THAT IT IS RECK
LESS POLICY TO BOND GOV
ERNMENT FOR RIVERS AND
HARRORS.
Special to the World.
WASHINGTON, D. C, Dec. 30.—
Friends in Washington of a compre
hensive policy for river and harbor
improvements, and there are many
such in the halls of legislation, have
become somewhat skeptical over the
position taken by James J. Hill,
who, in an interview, was severe in
his denunciation of the bond issue
of $500,000,000 enthusiastically en
dorsed by the recent convention of
the National Rivers and Harbors
Congress.
Mr. Hill, speaking of the recom
mended bond issue, said: "It is a
reckless, foolish, and I may almost
say, a criminal policy. When we ar
rive at the subject of appropriations,
at the question of how and to what
extent money shall be provided for
the vast undertaking, we have touch
ed the vital nerve center of any large
enterprise and the danger point.
Some of the more enthusiastic advo
cates of waterways have made the
mistake of urging that the national
credit be pledged to unheard of
amounts in order that we may com
plete the whole work, at once. The
men who would borrow and spend
lavishly may mean well but the
signboard where their road diverges
is marked plainly 'disaster.' "
Against the opposition of Mr. Hill
who sees in the bond issue a "reck
less and foolish policy," stands the
strongest kind of endorsement of a
j bond issue by President Roosevelt,
| Vice President Fairbanks, President
| Elect Taft, Andrew Carnegie, Champ
Clark, and a host of representative
| men both in and out of congress.
! President Roosevelt, in his notable
I address before the second convention
|of the Conservation Congress, said:
"Our natural resources are so related
that the use of one affects the use
of all the others. This is especially
true of our waterways. We have ne
glected our waterways more than any
other natural resource and Ye must
put an end to that neglect. First, let
us prepare a comprehencive plan for
inland waterway development. Such
a plan must consider every use of the
waters, it must put the interests of
all the people in advance of any pri
vate interests whatsoever. Second,
let us proceed immediately with the
construction of the waterways for
which plans already have been ap
proved and which we are now cer
tain will fit into the outlines of the
general plan. Our previous policy of
procrastination, delay and fitful and
partial action has borne its perfect
fruit. Our waterways are deserted
and in return for our vast expendi
tures we have little or no actual
navigation to show. The people are
ready for a change.
"Let us have it and at once. If
we caa pay the cost from current
revenues let us do so. If not, let
|us issue bonds. By either method let
;us have the waterways and that
' quickly. The plan and the work can
and should proceed together. While
the work we are. stire of is being be
gun, the plan for the rest can be
prepared."
Judge Taft, from the same plat
form, accentuated the high ground
taken by President Roosevelt in ap
proving a bond issue if current rev
enues are not sufficient to justify
continued improvements of the na
tion's waterways.
"I have no compunctions on the
subject of issuing bonds if the debt
to be contracted ought to be met
by bonds," said the next president
of the United States. "I think that
\ men sometimes overdo the business
of meeting what ought to be distrib
! uted expenses out of current income.
I I think there is good reason for issu
ing bonds for these improvements
: that are to be permanent and not to
spend current income for them.
| Sometimes it takes as much courage
; and involves as much real public
: interest to issue bonds for a purpose
for which bonds ought to he used as
It is to pay as we go. In other
words, it is a mere question of eco
nomic policy, and the mere fear of
; criticism, because an administration
has issued bonds, should not prevent
us from doing justice to ourselves
and posterity."
Vice President Fairbanks, in his
| welcoming address before the Na
tional Rivers and Harbors Congress
•on behalf of the government, saw
jno "reckless nor foolish policy*' in
j a bond issue for improving the
j rivers, harbors and canals of the
j United States, inasmuch as a great

part of the benefit to be derived from
these improvements was for futuie
iterations. He believed that the
importance and'magnitude of the
work of improving the waterways
<veie so exceptional that the country
would be justified in anticipating fu
ture income by a reasonable bond
issue.
NEVER TASTED WE
NATCHEE APPLES
EDITOR OF WHITE'S CLASS AD
VERTISING MALIGNS FRUIT
COUNTRIES OF THE WEST.
"There is every reason to believe
that the writer of the article never
tasted a Washington apple," said L.
G. Monroe, secretary of the Washing
ton Horticultural Association, in the
rooms of the Spokane Chamber of
Commerce, of which he is also secre
tary, after reading the appended
clipping from the current issue of
White's Class Advertising, published
in Chicago:
"Out in Washington two towns are
quarreling for the privilege of using
exclusively the title 'The Home of the
Big Red Apple.' The Yakima Com
mercial Club had started to adver
tise its locality under the name,
when Wenatchee jumped up and
cried, 'I saw it first.' Both sections
are known far and wide for their
big red apples, and it would seem to
us not a question for dispute, but
for settlement in favor of the one
with the most money to spend In ad
vertising.
"This is the country, all tourists
will remember, where the townspeo
ple, whenever a through train stops,
bring apples about the 3ize of pump
kins down to the station to sell to
travelers. They are wonderful ap
ples, in point of size and appearance,
but when you bite into one of them,
you never bite again. They are
made to sell; not to eat."
"I need only point to the fact that
the two districts mentioned carried
off the chief prizes at the National
Apple Show in Spokane, December 7
Ito 12," Mr. Monroe added, "to com-
I pletely refute the charge that our
apples are grown to sell and not to
eat. If further proof were required
I could refer to the English buyers
for European trade, who have se
cured almost 100,000 boxes of Wash
ington apples this season for the
London market, and I add that the
exhibit sent to London recently by
growers in the Wenatchee and Col
umbia valleys in charge of William
Edmund, of Orondo, Wash., brought
the highest price ever paid for ap
ples shown in Covent Garden, after
being sampled. Fruit journals from
London just to hand quote the top
price at 21 shillings, or $5.04 a box
paid for Washington apples, declar
ing also they were the best fruit ever
seen in London.
"We know also that apples grow.,
in the Yakima district are unexcelled
for color, size and flavor. Buyers for
j the largest commission houses in this
country and Europe say this and the
■ fact that they are buying liberally of
i the fruit in the valley proves they are
backing their iudgment for cho'ce
! products.
' When James J. Hill, chairman of
the board of the Great Northern Ra"-
way company, and others pay tlO a
box for Washington apples to send
to their friends in this country and
abroad and President Roosevelt finds
them good enough to include la the
j Christmas dinner at the White House,
it must be apparent they have other
merit than size and color.
"I do not know where the writer
in White's Class Advertising obtained
i his information regarding the quality
of our apples, but it would appear to
me, in the absence of other evidence,
! that he has yet to eat of our luscloua
{fruit. If he had, the editorial never
j would have been written; as he has
I not, there is a pleasant treat in store
for him."
