JOSEPH DRUG CO. _ ý:., AGENTS OUR, PUBLIC FORUM William Sproule On the Employment of the Employer The employment of the employer is a phase of the labor problem not so well exploited as the emnpl'yment of the employee but is equally as important to the pros peritr of the country. The employer was never known to go on a strike nor to ask for a reduction in hours yet the trend of our legislatures has been to di:;courage his activities. Mr. Wm. Sproule, President of the South ern Pacific Company, when asked to disc(:ss employ ment from the standpoint of the employer, said in part: "It is the habit of the time to speak of unemploy ment as if it related only to those who work for a spe cific hourly or daily, weekly or monthly, wage. It is thought of chiefly as relating to those engaged in the humbler duties of life. The facts run quite to the con trary. It is the employer who is first out of employment. As a natural se quence he is followed by the employee who next finds himself out of work. Unemployment begins only when the employer himself begins to be unem-, ployed. When the employer is prosperous and his energies are profitably em ployed, employees have abundant employment and they also prosper. But why is this period of unemployment? It is because all business is bewildered and uncertain. It does not know whether it may proceed in safety. It does not know with what snares its path may be laid. This condition began with transportation and now extends to all business. The greatest trouble with this country today is that every business which has been developed by the genius of the American people has become the object of unforeseen attack from some quarter or feels the threat or danger of attack. Our laws, which formerly were precise and definite, have blanketed business with loose gen eralities called crimes which the men who drew the laws and the men who Interpret those laws cannot themselves define with any precision. Even when they endeavor to expound those laws they make them more obscure and mystifying than before. "There is nothing more distressing to an employer of labor than to turn away good men who desire to do good work: but until all wake up to the fact that unless the employer is prosperous the employee is failing in pros perity. we will have little improvement. When we have learned the lesson that in this nation we are simply a big industrial family in which we all prosper together or we do not prosper at all, we will then have promise of relief from the misunderstandings and cajolements which increase unemploy ment and destroy the comfort and the prosperity of the average man. "I urge relief from the fads, fancies and isms which have filled our streets with unemployment and put away the dinner pail of the working man empty upon the shelf in the impoverished home. I urge the restoration of confi dence in the fact that American men of business are the peert of any in the world. I urge that the American workingman cannot be prosperous unless the American men of business prosper i urge that prosperity can come to us only with the full dinner pall. Finally I urge that the public interest in transportation is that it shall be prosperous in order, that it may be a successful and energetic aid to all the business it is designed to servo" SINGER SEWING MACHINES L.
