Our Food-Stuffs Shipped Last Year VALUED AT $724,000,000 FOR PERIOD ENDING JUNE 1, THIS YEAR Movement Abroad Nearly Doubles in Value Over Year Ago—Wheat Is Highest—Meat and Dairy Prod ucts Will Reach $200,000,000. Washington.- The share of the Unit ed States in feeding the world, a task vastly increased by the European war, is disclosed in statistics of the depart ment of commerce. Foodstuffs valued at $724,000,000 were exported during the 11 months ended June 1. This was the principal factor in the nation's billion dollar foreign trade balance. Exports for the same 11 months a year ago totaled 1443,000,000. Wheat formed the biggest item in foodstuffs sent abroad. In all 249,676,000 bush els were exported, an increase of 164, --000,000 bushels. It was valued at $319, --961,000, showing an increase over the previous year of $239,138,000, Sun. 1538 Oats valued at $51,609,000 were shipped, an increase of $51,028,000. There were 56.425.000 bushels, an In crease of almost 85.000,000 bushels. Flour Exports $87,650,000 Flour showed the next largest in crease, with a value of $87,650,000, or $37,638,000 more than the previous period. Almost 5,000.000 more barrels were sent this year, the total being 15,077,000. Corn exports were valued at $34, --542,000, an increase of $28,551,000. There were 43,718,000 bushels export ed, an increase of 35,000,000. Almoßt 305,000,000 pounds of bacon were shipped, an increase of 122,000, --000 pounds. It was valued at $41, --294,000, or an increase of $17,028,000. The United States still exports far more meats than It Imports for al though there have been record-hreak- ing arrivals in the last two years, ex ports have been even larger. Returns for 10 months indicate that the value of meat and dairy products exported this year will once more attain the $200,000,000 level that marked the de cade prior to 1909. The workman was digging The wayfarer of the inquisitive turn of mind stopped for a moment to look on. "My man." said the wayfarer at length, "what are you digging for?" The workman looked up. "Money," he replied. "Money!" ejaculated the amazed wayfarer. "And when do you expect to strike it?" "Saturday," replied the workman, and resumed operations. LABOR FORWARD BAND CON CERT ATTRACTS CROWD TO CITY PARK (Continued from Page 1) the pleasure of visiting your commun ity, and I am glad to be with you. First of all let me urge that you make yourselves as comfortable as you can while I speak to you a short time about, the labor union movement. The occasion is a most pleasant one; we have enjoyed the music, and 1 feel that you will bear with me while I briefly discuss the problems that con front the workers in industry. Earlier in the history of the human race, man was independent to a degree, ln mod ern life lie is not only dependent upon his fellows, but he and his fellows are interdependent. The introduction of machinery within recent years has so greatly changed all forms of labor pro duction that we now produce more rapidly than we can consume and are at all times seeking foreign markets to dispose of our surplus production. Individually, in our modern life, we can have but little strength or pow-er, but through co-operation and collec tive bargaining we are able to obtain at least to a considerable degree a square deal in disposing of our labor. The mine workers are differently sit uated from most of the organized workers of America. We are located in communities by ourselves, apart from other industries. The rest of the labor movement is, as a rule, located in communities where many lines of business are carried on, where many industries are conducted. "To maintain our rights as sellers of labor and protect our members from unjust treatment, we negotiate wage contracts with the employers, known as the coal operators, contracts which, specify what our rights and our duties are, contracts which provide not only the rate of wages and the limit of hours, but also determine the proce dure to follow in adjusting disputes or discharge of workers. FUNCTION OF CONTRACTS "These contracts, entered into with a desire to so regulate the sale of our labor as to give us just treatment, give us also industrial peace; and not withstanding the dullness of business and small demand for the products of the coal mines during the past year, a demand so small that our men worked only half or less of the usual working time. yet. because we had an agreement guaranteeing industrial peace, there has been no effort by our employers to break down our indus trial conditions or reduce the rate of wages. "Not in every state, I am sorry to say, does this condition prevail. In Colorado, West Virginia and .Michigan the workers in the mines have been denied the right to organize, have been persecuted for belonging to labor unions, have been herded in bull pens, have been beaten and murdered, sonic of them, with their wives and chil dren —shot and even burned to death. This is not a story of Russia or Turkey but a deplorable condition in a free republic, in some of the states of Which, most unfortunately, liberty has as yet not been established. 1 have a few pamphlets telling the story of the •Ludlow Massacre'the ruthless slaugh ter of innocent women and children of striking miners, and 1 hope you will read these books and lend your aid as free citizens of free states to compel the governments of the states I have named to give justice to our brothers in those localities. "One unlearned in the labor move ment might believe that only labor organizes; yet the professional classes of society have as firm and rigid a code of conduct as ever controlled a group of laborers. The lawyers have their Par Association, the physicians their Medical Association or Society, the purchasers of labor their Employ ers' Association; why, then, should anyone deny to labor the right to or ganize? "LABOR FORWARD MOVEMENT" "I want also to urge upon you your hearty co-operation with the Labor Forward Committee. Whatever we en joy as Industrial toilers In the way of rights and privileges have been se cured to us by our unions. We could not enjoy public streets, public schools and other public rights and benefits without organization of the people of our land. We could not have peace and order, security of life and prop erty without the united co-operation of all the people. How necessary, therefore, that the wage-earners of our country, the toilers in shop, mill nnd mine, selling their labor that they DM) live and provide for their loved ones, should co-operate together in the trade union movement in order that we may have the rights of free men in the enjoyment of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." At the c lose of the concert and the addresses several hundred pamphlets descriptive of the American Federa tion of Labor and its various branches, as well as a large number of the booklets telling of the Colorado min ing troubles, were distributed to those present and eagerly sought by all. A much greater supply could have very THE LABOR JOURNAL Spirit Rousers By CHARLES PERRY TAYLOR Secy. Washington State Federation of Labor. Over a million children Are at work in factories, fields, Stores, mines and streets. They should be at school and at play. Child labor lessens their chance Of a successful life. It cheats them of childhood And reacts upon us all. Since 1904 Every state has made advance In preventing child labor Or providing Education for all. Many states need to do more. A standard child labor bill Has been drafted And in several states adopted. Most states have tried more seriously To enforce their laws. But children are still working. Ages and hours of newsboys Have been regulated in twenty states. Street work should be prohibited In every state to children under 16. Age limits must be established Eor dangerous trades. Hours of minors should be regulated In all kinds of work. All children should attend school Until 16 years old at least. Industrial and technical training Must be promoted. No child should be employed In factories under 16, More than eight hours in twenty-four, At night, Nor in mines under 16 at any time. Nine states have all thes( standards. All but two states have one or more. Congress will pass a federal child Labor bill If the people will only Let Congress know they Want it passed.

LABOR OFFICIAL DISCUSSES CHILD LABOR PROBLEM (Continued from Page .1 > agine a brutal taskmaster hoisting the infant in a basket to a ceiling in an overheated, poorly ventilated tene ment living and workroom, small in size, the child permitted to sleep for ten minutes and then lowered again to the worktable, water thrown into its face to revive it so it may resume labor, or, that failing, the child whip ped to compel it to return to its task. These instances are not overdrawn, nor are they rare. Thousands of cases equally degrading and destructive of life exist in our industries. What is everybody's business Is nobody's busi ness, and so long as it is not your baby or mine, so long as your boy or my girl are free from these atrocities, we care not for the wrongs inflicted upon others' children. Yet, before the throne of God, I verily believe you and I must ultimately answer for our indifference. Man's inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn, but man's brutalities toward childhood dwarf all the fiendishness of either ancient or modern war. REGULATING CHILD LABOR "Child labor lessens the chance of successful life, weakens their bodies and stunts their minds; fails to train them for citizenship; makes them in efficient: cheats them of childhood and reacts upon all. A national law should be established prohibiting chil dren being employed in factories un der 14, or under 16 more than eight hours a day, or under 16 at. night, or in mines under 16 at any lime. Every state but two has one or more of these standards. Nine states have them all. Ages and hours of newsboys have been regulated by law in twenty states. Street work should be prohibited in every state to children under 16. Spe cial age limits must be established for dangerous trades. Hours of min ors must be regulated in all kinds of work. The morally hazardous night messenger service is closed to boys under 21 in nine states. This should be done throughout the country. All children should attend school until If, years old and until definite educa tional standards have been met. In dustrial and technical training must be promoted. One city in Germany, that country of marvelous efficiency in both peace and war, has more trade schools than all America A United States senator has said: 'Congress will pass a federal child labor law if the people will insist upon it.' I beg of you. in the name of oppressed mil lions of children in industry, to write to members of Congress and urge them to pass such a law. Do this as your part, as you would rush to the defense of your own offspring. WHAT UNIONS ACCOMPLISH "The general activities of labor unions arc those of collective bargain ing, the struggle to sell labor, skilled .md unskilled, for a living standard to reduce the hours of toil to decent limits, and to preserve and obtain a ■quare deal between man and man, between employer and employe Our own stat- is known as the most ad vanced and progressive in the union of states in its labor legislation. W. have an eight-hour law for women that protects the girls in Industry from eXCeslve hours, based upon the sound theory that the vitality of worn- ' anhood shall not be overtaxed and that the maternal functions shall be unim paired In employment. We have a. workmen's compensation law provid ing for the taxation of industry so 1 that the soldier of peace shall receive material compensation or pension for the injuries received in industry. The primary purpose is to reduce acci dents, for we know the wife and chil dren of the laborer do not want him broken on the wheel of industry, but rather desire to watch for him at the garden gate at eventide, as he returns sound and whole to his loved ones, his empty dinner-bucket swinging from his arm, with kisses for his wife and youngsters, and an appetite for sup per that will tux the capacity of the kitchen. Ask the families of the la borers what they most desire. The] will reply: 'Dad wants good wages, short hours and steady work, and we want our dad.' "Judge not, 1 beg of you. the labor union by the error of an Individual who may stray from the path of rec titude. You do not expect mankind to judge the religion of Jesus by the perfidy of Judas Iscariot; no man judges the nobility of purpose of the founders of our republic by the traitor ous conduct of Benedict Arnold: no labor union preaches or teaches vio lence or disorder, union men are not anarchists; fairness toward one an other is the religion of unionism, and these men try to follow the last and greatest commandment of Christ: to I love one another. Let not malice or slander mislead you in your concep tion of union labor.
