'J' [Extract from remarks of Hon. J.
'y B. Foraker, of Ohio, in Daily Con'e"
gressional Record, Feb. 4, 1904.]
During the years that have, passed
since the McKinley administration
commenced untt^ now our foreign
commerce has so grown, and grown
in our favor, that the annual balance
= of trade will average more than $500,000,000.
every dollar of which the Nations
with which we trade have been
compelled to pay to us, and to pay to
us in gold worth 100 cents all around
the world. There have been no 50-cent
Bryan dollars in those transactions.
As a result of it. Mr. President, we
have to-day in the Treasury of this
country more gold belonging to the
United States than was ever held by
any government in the history of the
world.
f- Not only has foreign trade grown in
that manner and to that extent and
with that success, but the prosperity
which it indicates is general; it Is
A universal; it is distributed through^
out the whole country; it is common
| to all sections, and to no section
M more than to the Southern States.
,? A few days ago there was made In
' another place where men legislate a
y, very brilliant speech, in the course of
J which the speaker quoted from newspapers,
the leading newspapers from
almost every State throughout the
whole,South, in order to show what
the conditions were, according to
those papers?almost ev ry one of
llieni ft Democratic paper?on rue ist
day of January last.
Mr. Patterson. If prosperity is ns
great as it lias been, if if has not di
minished and is not diminishing, how
= does the Senator irom Ohio account
for the material cut in the wages of
'* twenty-five or thirty thousand workj
men and workwomen engaged In the
5. New England textile fabric mills, a
>r reported cut in wages in all the sfeel
'y industries, and that there is now assembled
at Indianapolis a National
convention of bituminous coal miners
_ threatening a National strike because
they have been notified that after a

^ are receiving will he materially lessened?

T' HIGH WAGES.
"Wages Paid In the United States
= Compared With Those Paid In
x Great Britain."
? [Extract from remarks of Hon. I. F.
Fischer, of New York, in House of
Representatives, March 23, 1S97, and
printed in Appendix to bound Congressional
Record, Vol. 30, page 21.]
I desire to read here a table collated
by Mr. Nathaniel McKay, under date
of August, 1S9C, showing wages paid
in the United States compared with
those paid in Great Britain.
Mr. McKay is a gentleman who had
devoted much time and energy to the
investigation of this character, and
from my knowledge of the man. 1
have no hesitancy in declaring my belief
in the absolute truthfulness of the
statement:
In the United States a blacksmith
receives 101 per cent, more than in
_ England.
in the United States a bricklayer receives
125 per cent, more than in
England.
In the United States a carpenter receives
1C5 per cent, more than in England.
Tn the TTnifGrl Stairs a ealker rG
ceives 12fi per cent, more than in England.
In the United States a conductor
(express) receives 3-19 per cent, more
. than in England. ?
' In the United States a car driver
receives 2S per cent, more than in
England.
In the United States an engineer (locomotive)
receives 191 per cent, more
than in England.
In the United States a fireman receives
1S8 per cent, more than in Eng.
land.
n In the United States a machinist re^
ceives 13S per cent, more than in Enge
land.
,r In the United States a plasterer ret
ceives 111 per cent, more than in
g England.
a In the United States a plumber re^
ceives 143 per cent, more than in Eng'
land.
In the United States a telegraph oprfiroivp';

OF TRADE
is no trouble in answering the Senator.
I am not going to answer him
in detail as to all the cases he puis,
because it is sufficient to answer him
as to one. iuid either that or sotue
similar answer wii] be found as to
each of the others. He puts the case
of the cotton manufacturers. it is
the price of cotton. Mr. president,
which has gone so high?whether on
account, of legitimate demand or
whether' on account of manipulation
of stock brokers and dealers it does
not matter?has gone so high as to
cripple that industry, to stop a number
of factories, and to turn, in consequence.
a number of men into Idleness.
For other causes, having nothing to
do with the general policies of the
country, but originating in and having
their effect in spite of those policies.
the steel industry has been
temporarily affected, and the mining
of coal has been temporarily affected,
perhaps. I am not able to answer as
to detailed facts all the suggestions
made by the Senator, hut we know
that it is no unusual thing to see the
representatives of labor vantl the representatives
of capital meeting
in National convention for the purpose
of considering questions of
wages and other questions of a similar
character
We do know, however. Mr. Prosidem,
this to be a fact, that when thi
Republican party is in power and the
people of this country are satisfied
with the industrial legislation, there V;
is never any strike, except for difference
as to wages or hours or other
ffirms. Labor strikes when it knows
if it quits work to-day it can go back and
find work to-morrow; capital
strikes and goes out of business when
you institute policies in which the
people have no confidence That Is r
the difference between strikes under
Democratic and striates tinder Repub- | -51
Iican policies
You are liable to have strikes under
any administration, although
from different causes. How was ii
under Cleveland? Nobody struck then
because he was getting less wages
than, lie wanted. The trouble was .to ?
get any wages at a!!.Tito only striking
anybody did was to strike out for
a job. the first one he could bear tell .. ... of.
and pursue if and get it, if J hif
could, anywhere and at "any. -'"oh:
price." on any kind of terms
I time. To us, -country is above party
or candidate it we have to leave our v }
conscience behind to do so. This year
every Republican can congratulate
himself on a ticket of tlie highest
crude of men as standard bearers;
both State and National. The platforms
are able, clean ami dear cat,
and the recent: party record hi both
State and Nation is one to appeal to
the pride of every true Republican; tn :&
the White House we haveca man who
does things and who who dees them
up in good shape without delay too.
We have not a word to say against the
candidates our opponents as men.
They are honorable men of blameless
character. But they are the nominees ;;
of a party whose principles if put in
charge of the administration this fail
could not do the country one whit of
good, and could only do it harm. The
Republicans have a commendable record
in both State and Nation. The
party has in President Roosovelt an
almost Ideal leader. In Wm. M. O.
Dawson, West Virginia Republicans
have a stalwart champion of the people
whose past record for the party
and the State endears him to every
true Republican. The Republicans
must win this fail.?Ritchie Standard,
