AS THE EDITOR SEES IT
The sting of the honey bee is a joy
to the sting of price boosting that is
going on all over the country. The
price of postage stamps and air, how
ever, remain at normal.
Try it for one day. Give a cheerful
word to everyone you see from the time
you awake until you go to sleep at
night. Then note the change in your
feelings.
Young man, the road to wealth and
fame does not lie through idleness and
street corners. Successful men are nev
er found there, and men who have made
names and fortunes for themselves were
not found there in their youth.
It' it was simply an increase of the
one five per cent or so all along the
line it would not be such a burden. But
it. is not. Every fellow who handles it
wants to suck a little extra blood from
the turnip, until by the time it reaches
your home or business office the origin
al increase has multiplied many fold.
How does it feel to be a goat, anyway?
If some live merchant will spend an
hour or two some evening with his store
blinds down and install a handsome and
attractive window display, something
unique and out of the ordinary, and
then advertise it in this paper, we ven
ture the prediction that at least half of
the people in jhis community will be
around to see it. And many of them
will buy just because they happen to
be there. Advertising will get the peo
ple to a store that is worth going to,
but the merchant and his own goods
must do the selling. Step up. gentle
men. What merchant in this town
wants the people to beat a path to his
store l
Whether a man is a true Progressive
or not may be judged largely by his
attitude toward labor unions. Roughly
speaking our laws have done nothing for
labor. Whatever the workmen have
earned in wages or comfort or shorter
hours has been won by agitation and
often by terrorization. The union has
given labor power to make demands.
Capital often increases wages, just as
the Steel Trust did the other day. But
these increases are generally made to
meet the union's demands, or to fore
stall the union. It is not merely organ
ized labor that has benefited by the
work of the union. Whenever the union
is able to advance wages among union
workers the non-union worker reaps the
benefit. No one with the slightest
knowledge of economic history has any
doubt but that the union, with its
power to strike, has been the one force
that has stood between labor and abso
lute slavery in the last half century.
Therefore, the test of a candidate's pro
gressivism lies in his attitude toward
the union.
A new one lias been sprung on an
overworked public by a murderer who
claims that he killed his wife in order
to keep her pure. And, wo think, danc
ing on air is the best method of keeping
him pure.
