MARCH 23, 1896. Who Controls Freeland's Streets? The dispute between the borough council and tlie Lehigh Traction Com pany over the snow on South Centre street is a small affair in itself, but the principle involved is much greater than appears at first sight. In dealing with this company the council of Frooland has been lenient to a degree far beyond that which was considered necessary by man} of the taxpayers. As soon as the battle over tile right of way in Foster ' township between it and the now de- j Timet Union Passenger Railway Com pany (in which local men were Interest ed) was settled in the courts, the coun eilmen threw open our streets to the Ha/.leton capitalists and invited them to occupy the thoroughfares with but few restrictions. A lengthy ordinance was passed and j published, for which the borottgii paid the local papers, with the understanding ; that the Lehigh Traction Company would j refund that expense. Not only has the | company failed to pay for the publishing i <f the ordinance, which, by the way. i amounted to about but its directors ; refused to avail themselves of the privi leges then given them. These privileges were granted because the Traction's representatives pleaded -o hard for a right of way to enable the road to roach South lieberton and Upper Lehigh. However, it appears that the Traction people could see no benefit to Ha/.leton in extending the tracks to Upper Lehigh, and as it was never their intention to benefit Freeland. they allow ed the ordinance which gave them the right to occupy uptown streets to be come void. Their actions were then construed by Freeland people as a notice that in all future dealings with that corporation Freeland must look to its own interests first, last and all the time. The reject ing of the privileges which were begged for by the company and granted by the council was a deliberate insult to the people of this town, and was so taken by • very citizen conversant with the facts. Last winter the business men of South Lent re street complained of the incon venience to which they were put by the company hanking the snow along the sides of the,- street, thereby shutting out the merchants* teams and preventing \ chick s from passing one another. For more than two months last year that pari of Centre street which is occupied by tracks was given up to the sole use of the company, because it was dangerous for others to venture thereon. During the summer months the fast and reckless running of the trolley cars caused much apprehension among par ents in that end of town, and scarcely a day passed that did not have to its ••redit a miraculous escape or two by children. Again complaints were made, and a protest was filed with the Traction Company's officials, but the danger ap parently was not lessened. The manner in which these abuses were tolerated by the borough council and the lenient steps which were taken to correct them caused many to believe t hut a Traction pass was of more con cern to our borough lawmakers than the life and interests of the people. That, however, was a belief which the Tur in nk did not share, nevertheless cir cumstances gave some grounds for peo ple to think as they did. There were no heavy falls of snow this winter until the recent storm came. Immediately, the company adopted the plan of the previous year, and again barred out the business men and resi dents of South Centre from the use of the street in front of their properties. The street committee of council at niice secured legal advice and notice was -erved on the company to remove the snow which had been thrown from its tracks. The result was given in the new- columns of our last issue. The people of Freeland were told to "go to I, to use the language of the com pany's seeretary, hut it is not likely the injunction will be obeyed until it comes from some place higher than the office of Mr. Markie. By order of the borough officials the snow has been removed. There was some expense attached to the removal, and tiie duty of the cotiucilmeu is now to live up strictly to the contents of its notice to the company, i. e.. to compel the company to pay every cent of ex pense incurred. It is not just that the taxpayers should have saddled upon them any more bills contracted through litis corporation's negligence. Freeland can better afford to incur t Ite. enmity of the press-muzzling crowd than to placidly humble itself to any set of grasping men. So far the town has prospered without the aid of outside dictators, and the independent spirit of our people will not be broken by tlie insolence- of Traction magnates. Upon the eounrilinen lias now fallen the honor of upholding the dignity of Free laud. Do it faithfully and well, the people arc with you. LIVE QUESTIONS. A Series Articles Contributed to These Columns by Advanced Thinkers. INDUSTRIAL CONCILIATION. Whenever a strike or lockout is of sufficient importance to attract public attention, after it has continued for a few days there begins to bo talk of "ar bitration" on the part of the press and of the workiugmeu who aro engaged in the contest. If arbitration is resorted to, the ques tions in dispute are referred to one or more arbitrators, who hear both sides and decide between them. This is, of course, a judicial process, except that the submission of the question on both sides is purely voluntary, as neither can force the other into court, and the obli gation to abide by the decision is moral only; there is nothing legally binding in it. Usually strikes and lockouts are set tled in a less formal way by the iutor vention of persons inspired either by private or public interest, who act as go bet weens and run from one side to the other, gaining a little concession here and there, smoothing away one difficulty after another, and finally ar ranging matters with as little loss of dignity as possible to the contending parties. But between civilized bodies of men whoso services are vitally important to each other, who make their living by the help of each other, it is a disgrace that there should bo these constantly re curring contentions. They arise only from the selfishness and tyranny of men, unrestrained by nobler qualities, and selfishness aud tyr anny arc equally hateful and mischie vous whether exhibited by employers or employed. Unfortunately, whichever side has had the power has usually ex ercised it in so arrogant a manner aud with such unrelenting harshness as to goad the othor side to resistance, result ing often in a state of open warfare which has continued cither until one side or the other is quite conquered, when the old series of acts is begun again to end in the same way or until both sides are exhausted. i The fact needs to ho emphasized that the same qualities have been exhibited by both sides, that human nature, when undiscipliuod, is very much the same thing "in masters and in men," and that neither side has a light to cast stones, but both should cry "moa culpa, mea culpa!" At times it is the labor or gan izations which are dictatorial, while the employers cringe and relinquish all their rights to maintain peace, but more frequently the employers are arbitrary and tyrannical, asserting loudly that they "intend to manage their own busi ness as they choose and will not be in | terforod with by their workmen." I IN SOLVING A I'ROULE.U USE ALLTIIE FACTORS Hero is the weak point—there will never be justice between employers and employees, and consequently there will never be a lasting peace, until the pub lic and the employers recognize the claim of the employees to a voice in the settlement of questions relating to the I conditions of labor. These questions are I of vital importance to the employees, j and do, in fact, more nearly concern them than they do the employers, for in 1 the case of the latter it is only their business success or their living which is j involved, while with the employees all j interests are at stako. It can scarcely be i expected that American citizens who havo been born and bred with the in stincts of freemen will submit tamely to a s3'ston which places their welfare entirely in tho hands of others. : Tho above suggestion will be new to ! many, and may seem to bo unreason ; able, but the more it is considered tho more just it will show itself to be, aud it will finally bo acknowledged to bo , true. As Mr. William H. Say ward, sec retary of tho National Association of : Builders (an association of employers), says in a lecture on tho "Relation of i Employer and Workman :" j "Tho labor question has two compo nent parts, tho employing or profit labor and the performing or wago labor, and ; it; is folly to attempt to deal with tho j question at all unless both parties are ! united in tho consideration. Neither ! party to the joint interest can handle tho question alone." lION. C. 1. ADAMS ON ARBITRATION. 1 The next question is the practical one, I "How can employees be taken into the councils of their employers?" and the answer made by Mr. Charles Francis | Adams, for many years stuto railroad commissioner in Massachusetts and for 1 many years also president of tho Union j Pacilic railroad, in an urticlo entitled j "The Prevention of Railroad Strikes," is one which must cause a responsive thrill in every American breast: "It will bo impossible to establish 1 perfectly good faith and tho highest I morale in the service of the companies (railroad) until the problem of giving this voice to employees and giving it | effectively is solved. It can be solved in ; but one way, that is, by representation. To solve it may mean industrial peace. "It is impossible to dispose of these difficult matters in town meetings. Nevertheless, tho town meeting must bo nt the base of any successful plan of i disposing of them. The end in view is ! to bring the employer—who in this case ! is tho company, represented by its pres ident and board of directors—and the ' employees into direct and immediate : contact through a representative system. When thus brought into direct and im mediate contact, tho parties must arrive at results through the usual methods; that is, by discussion and rational agree ment. i "It follows the linos of action with | which the peoplo of this country are ; most familiar. Tho path is that in ! which for centuries they havo been ac j customed to tread. It lias led them out lof many difficulties. Why not out of this difficulty?" THE REPRESENTATIVE SYSTEM BEST. Mr. Adams' solution is, so far ns American railroads are concerned, pure- Ily theoretic. Tbere is in other iudua- trial fields proof that the principles ho advocates aro correct. Experience has demonstrated that the representative systom is as useful in business as in gov ernment. For the last 20 or <3O years in many largo industries in England all questions of conditions of work have been sottled, without strike or lockout, by "joint boards," "boards of concilia tion" or "arbitration boards," on which the associations of employers and em ployees have both been represented by delegates duly chosen and empowered to legislate for their constituents, and on these boards the employers and employ ees have always had an equal represen tation. In our country also and in Bel gium such boards aro known and have met with equal success, but the practice of justice with us has been neither so long nor so widely extended as in Eng land, and, strangely enough, employers here, instead of instinctively recogniz ing that this is the only solution of the difficulties of the "labor question," as sume a tone of arbitrary ownership and proclaim their right to issue ordors which must bo obeyed. From business men one might have expected more "practical"conduct, since it is very evident that those who adopt this position do not succeed in avoiding labor conflicts and disturbances which cause them great loss and trouble, while the employers who recoguizo the justice of their employees' claim to a joint con trol in questions of common interest do escapo them. In the cases where "joint boards" aro formed the preliminary step usually is the mutual recognition that both bides aro übout equal in strength, that each can injure the other seriously, but that neither can conquer the other. The proof of this necessarily comes from the experience of a long series of alternat ing strikes and lockouts—the employees making unreasonable demands when trade is good, the employers doing the same when trade is bad, a system "niu tually predatory." Finally it occurs to a few men on one side or the other that the whole tiling is unworthy of intelli gent men who make their living by the help of each other. This sounds simple enough, and to a disinterested observer seems the only reasonablo method of settling questions which aro of the greatest importance to both employers and employed, which cannot be settled except by mutual con sent, either forced or voluntary, and which must bo settled if business is to continue. And yet the obstinacy and arrogance of men make this reasonable arrange ment a very difficult one to accomplish. FAIUNT.S:; ON BOTH SIDES. The two sides must bo about equal in strength, or, in ether words, both must be "well organized"—thero must be a | strong association of employers and a strong trades union or other labor organ ization, both of which shall represent the majority of the employers and work men in the trade. This is necessary be cause the "joint committee" or "wages board" must bo composed of representa tives who are authorized to bind their constituents; otherwise their agreements would bo empty words. Besides this, however, both the ropre sent at iv es and the organizations they represent must in the main bo honest i men, intelligent men, or the plan will ; fail. JOSEPHINE KIIAW LOWELL. New York, March, 189(3. THE LOCAL PAPER. In newspaper woik as well as elso where "distance lends enchantment, to the view." Many peoplo imagine that the paper published fur away is for that very reason Letter than the homo paper. But this is often not the case. Every one should ho deeply interested in the home paper—support it heartily. | The newspaper is the greatest means ; for spreading knowledgo in existence. It is the one means, the only one, that | reaches all the peoplo with knowledge, and hence is at onco school, professor and textbook combined. The newspaper, moro and more, is catering to the tastes of all classes. Its editorial policy may ho for one party or denomination, but in its pages will be found a vast variety of opinions on all kinds of subjects. The secret of the suc cess of the gioat dailies is this—that ikey have opened their columns to all kinds of ideas. I am sure that this is the mot hod and purpose of all local pa pers who know the trend of things uud appreciate the situation. I The editor who would admit nothing into his pages hut that which agreed ' with his own views would certainly be , out of place and not succeed. I As the forum where opinions and I theories meet and clash, lose and win, I the local paper is a great institution, ; and is destined to have a still greater future. Along tko two or three lines hinted above—viz, (1) greater variety, (2) more literary finish, (53) greater accuracy in statement, whether in argument, de : scriptions or reports—the newspapor of the fnturo will develop, and editors ev erywhere are planning and working in : those directions. Now, the reader is not I always aware of the great difficulties ! and large expenditures necessary for such improvements. Hence his (or her) warm co-operation is of great value. Too many peoplo, for example, do not appreciate the fact that a notice, an ! nouueement, report or article written for the local paper should be well writ | Leu. Wo dash off a paragraph of news j and hand it to the editor with not much care as to its accuracy or its graceful ; uess of diction. In writing the most ' commonplace of announcements we ! should bo as careful as in preparing an | essay that is to be perused by a critic. 1 Again, there are hundreds of good ' thoughts cherished in every community that never get into print. If these sin cere and capable people would write out thoit dourest opinions, putting them in , crisp, cloar, terse and smooth sentences, editors would be glad to publish them. | Those are only a few of the many I ways that we, dear reador, can help the editor, and wo owo it to the cause of | human progress to do so. ANTHONY MURDOCK. MATTERS —of the— MOMENT. Subjects in XVhieh the Citizens of Preeland and Surroundings Are Interested at the Present Time. The Citizens' lloso Company has at length realized the noeessity of a more adequate tire alarm system in the bor ough, and at its last meeting sent out a committee to devise a method and re port it to council at Us next monthly meeting. This is a matter which has rested with the hose company for some time, and it is some satisfaction to know that is finally receiving a little consid eration. The increased height of the buildings in the neighborhood of the pre? o it bell, and the ever-changing wind current, tends to lessen its effect con siderably, and confine Its sound almost to within a few blocks of its location. The manner of ringing the bell also ad mits of a great variety of tone, and at every succeeding lire in town there arc numbers of people who do not hoar the alarm at ail. This is one of the worst features of the present system. In a town where protection from lire depends upon volunteer effort, and when the ma jority of citizens are nearly always at work in outside places, it is necessary that we should have an alarm capable, at least, of reaching every ear within the borough limits, in order to command all the assistance available. X X X The closing days of spring and the short period of rest before the com mencement of spring activities, again brings an influx of the younger genera tion from school. An observation of the students from the various institutions •>f learning is interesting—interesting to those who have gone through a high er curriculum, interesting because of the comparative distinctiveness of student life and interesting as a means of study ing the effects of the methods practiced in the different schools. But far more interesting is the subject, when the con ditions which have superinduced tiie the contributions of the coal regions to the normal schools are considered. The normal schools of the state are Invari ibly chosen by the parents of tills region, who aro desirous of educating their sons and daughters, and the aim of tiie latter to become educators themselves seems to be their uppermost ambition. The aim is a worthy one, but unfortunately the vocation is often mistaken and re sults in dismal failure. However, the ; sincerity of the. parents, who have learn ed through sad experience what the ad vantages of a school education would mean, and who arc compelled to make many sacrifices to carry out their object, is deserving of the highest praise. t t t When the condition of the coal region at the present time is taken into ac count, and the common transition of in dustrial life, that of the son being the same as the father, following the same line of work, Is considered as a natural sequence, the effect on the mind is ap palling. The future of coal mining of fers nothing desirable to the young man. The remuneratlveness it once possessed has departed, and the inces sant drudgery of the? work Is becoming more repulsive. The European element has driven the English-speaking people out of the mines in large numbers, but a great many yet remain, and It Is a self-evident fact that the familiar inter course of this class witli the Huns, the Holes and the Slavs, has been detrimen tal to them rather than elevating to the new comers. The effect of this driving out of the hotter classes from coal min ing is what is sending the younger gen eration to school, and they are tin; most earnest students at school today. Those young men whom misfortunes in the mines have denied the advantages of a school education, constitute a homo studying class which can scarcely be rivalled outside of the coal region, whose ambition is the ultimate abandon ment of the work which has rendered them nothing. t t t The Mining and Mechanical Institute of Freeland lias been the means of satis fying the desire of this latter class of young men about the mines, and while the spirit of education has not yet dif fused itself among them to tlio extent hoped for by the projectors of the insti tute, it lias, nevertheless, manifested it self sufficiently to show that with a little more substantial encouragement it may soon become general. The branches of study at the institute, other than mining —which, however, possesses many devo tees In its higher workings—are the ones most pursued by the young men, and the earnest application of the stu dents emphasizes the conclusion stated above, namely, that it is not the desire of the average young men in the coal region today to continue the work of his fathers.
