Employer and cmplayo can never arrive at a common un. demanding, and therefore the government must own the means of production. Cool, temperate discussion is the key to the labor question. Nonpartisan elections, by bringing confidence of the peo ple In the officials, s the first step toward securing faith in governmental arbitration of labor question*. The eight-hour day, minimum wages and a government non partisan commission to fix the prices of necessities to meet wsge conditions, will bring em ployer and employe together on a frendly under«tandinq, The*e nre some of the migges (ions offered by Star readers in answer to the question propounded by KYed W. Strang, of the Strana £ I'roseer. Advertising agency. Strang offers 925 for the best l«*tter. $10 for (.'to second best, and IT. for the thltd best letter dlscuKsing the question: "How ran The Star bent promote helpful relation! between employer and employe?" The following are some of the letters received: IF WORKERS SAVED. THEY'D OWN THE U. S Kditur The SUr; inclosed are a few of my views, regarding the labor question. *hlch agitates the thinking public mind. The »rlter has been a hard la boring man 60 years, but not a un ion man. There is no reason, or justice, why my shingle mill should be picketed, more than my dwell ing. or store, depriving me of their free use. Some time ago I was in a mill «here they were paying off 150 men. While waiting to see the pay teller. I noticed most of them were drawing about >50, monthly payment. One had due 1437. I asked the teller how It came, he had so much more than the rest. He said tie had not blown his in. Then he told me his wife and daughter are the mainstays of the church here: live well, dress well, and have their home paid for. I said that proves the assertion I often make that, If the employes would be as economics! hs their employers, according to their de mands. It would not bo five years till they would own and control the money of America. He said. "There will not be len out of all I pay off who will have a dollar to their names Monday." As a rule, those who do save are men of families. He says, "Do you wonder we oppose these strikes, when we know over SO per cent of It goes directly Into the cigar stands, saloons and houses of disrepute?" A READER OF THK STAR 1C YEARS. NONPARTISANSHIP THE KEY TO IT ALL Editor The Star: Mow can The Star promote helpful relations be tween employer and employe? This subject has received the at tention of very learned men, but without solution. I'nder these ilr cumstances, it hardly seems Justi fied that I should venture an opin ion. Nor do 1 write to win a "prize," for if I should bo awarded one, the editor Is authorised to give It to some worthy brother In want. The solution', or the beginning of the solution, Iks (In my opinion) In what The Star has been advocating. When candidates are elected to of fice all offices thru nonpH.rtis.in methods, then those elected and their acts will be viewed with con fidence. In a worldly way all men are not equal. The Creator never Intended they should be. It has been said that a man from his shoulders down Is worth $l.f>o per day; from his shoulders up according to his brain matter. There always have been nnd always will be men and women for the different callings, professions and vocations, and, Je spite all that may bo done, the world will wag on. Improving as It goes. Too frequently now. men posing an living exponents of the "B<iua.ro deal" vote and use th«*tr Influence In harmony with their part)'* wishes, above that which la right.

The nonpartisan way only will insure such. And when this haa taken places then tb« employer and the employe *111 have confidence In (he representa tive government. Then employer and employe will look to and ex pect the truly representative gov ernment to act as a go-between. H. S. JEKFERY, Preg. H. S. Jeffery Machinery Co.
