There can be little sympathy with
the shipyard strikers who have again
quit work and tied up ship building
on the Pacific coast. These are the
same men who struck last spring for
$6, $7 and $8 per day for laborers,
helpers and mechanics, when they
were getting $4.46 for laborers, $5.40
for helpers and $6.86 for mechanics.
After losing $40,000,000 worth of
ship building contracts to Pacific I
coast yards the men returned to work,
at the old wage. They tried to start
a revolution at Seattle by calling a
sympathetic strike and stopping all
industry, but were balked in this by
the heroic action of Mayor Hanson of
Seattle and the utter lack of sympa
thy with the movement from the gen
Most of the shipyard workers are
Slackers who went into the shipyards
to avoid military service. "I hope they
get cut down to 90 cents a day and
have $7 per month taken from their
wages for hospital fees" said a re
turned soldier, who gave up a good
position to enlist at $30 per month.
Continuing he said:
"Those are the guys that went into
the shipyards to avoid military serv
ice. They have been getting too high
wages for their class. I hope they
lose the strike." That probably rep
resents the sentiment of a majority
of tlfe American soldiers, the real
Americans who enlisted in the army
for love of country while these men,
mostly foreigners, went into the
shipyards to avoid military service.
The real Americans do not sympath
ize with this class of people and this
strike will fail as the former strike
Some time ago The Star-Mirror, in
discussing government ownership and
control of business industries stated
that "the average government depart
ment head who secures his position
through political pull could not hold
a job in a grocery store, if dependent
solely upon his ability." The fact that
people bought and paid for groceries
offered for sale by the government on
August 18, and at this date, October
1, have not received the goods for
which they paid cash in advance in
addition to postage, -sems to sub
stantiate the statements made by this
paper. Every time the government
bus undertaken any kind of business
it has made a miserable failure of it.
The present administration has done
more to cure thç "government owner
ship" germ with which many of us
were aflicted, than hours of argu
ment and volumes of literature could
have accomplished in 5Û years.
D'Annundo, the Italian poet, fight
er and adventurer, who took Flume
and is trying to hold it against the
Allied powers, imagines himself a

H* is a fanatic, unbalanced mentally
but with wonderful
lines. That his revolution will fail
just as that of Bela Kun, the socialist
fanatic, who cooly ordered
iron and children to be butchered
and wept bitterly when placed under

never won a war and never will. It

Six dollars a day for eight hours
work, the abolition of the contract,
system and the release of every labor
union man in prison, whether guilty
or innocent, is the modest demands of
the employes of the Oliver Mining
Company, near Ely, Minnesota. The
men went on strike. It is to.be hoped
they remain idle until their demands
are granted in full, in which case
there will be a lot of miners starved
to death. Whenever the American
government opens its jails at the re
quest or demand of any organization,
be it labor union, church, political
party or secret order, the Amancaii
government will have ceased to exist
and we will have bolshevism in its
The suggestion that a general hos
pital be built in Moscow for the use
of the entire county is a good one.
Colfax has such a hospital end it is
ranked with the court house as among
the city's most valuable assets. With
such a hospital here and every town
in the county connected with Moscow
by a direct highway or a railroad, the
hospital would be of great benefit
to the entire county. A Moscow citi
zen who recently visited the big hos
pital at Colfax, said: "I was amazed
to find such a splendid institution
where every doctor in that county
could take his patients and have them
well cared for, and to find patients
from so wide a territory. The hos
pital is a great asset to Colfax. Mos
cow ought to have one like it."
It is now in order for some dis
gruntled congressman to ask, when
Herbert Hoover hands back that
$90,000,000, why he does not also
hand back the other $10,000,000,
though all the members bade goodby
to the whole $100,000,000 voted for
food to keep Europe from starving.
Such men as Hoover are beyond the
comprehension of congress. He has
worked five years, won the applause
of the whole world by doing a tre
mendous job well, yet he quietly re
tires to his old home and resumes
his old business. It is a joy to find
a man who can keep his head level

That is a splendid idea of President
Lindley's to meet the freshmen of the
University of Idaho every Wednesday
afternoon for a "confidential chat"
and make the young men and young
women who have entered the school
for the first time, feel at home and
realize that even the very busy presi
dent has their interest at heart and
is willing to take time from his nutn
erou other duties to advise with
them. The university is doing a
grand work . Every
head seems to be the right man in the
right place and Idaho will get some
wonderful results from the work now
being done in the big school.

Has anything been done yet toward
providing homes for students and for
families who want to come here to
send their children to school ? If we
do not begin soon next September will
find us where we were this year and
then there will be a clamor to divide
the university and take the agricul
tural college to some other part of
the state because Moscow cannot
provide homes for the students in the
growing institution. This is not a
fancied but a real donger. Le us
avoid it by beginning right now to

The average American voter would
welcome a change from the demo
cratic administration that has "balled
things up" so persistently and made
a muddle of so many undertakings,
but the republicans must unite on a
strong candidate if they hope to win.
Only dissatisfied republican votes can
elect a democratic candidate for presi
dent. The sooner the party leaders
realize this and quit quarreling
among themselves and unite on a
strong candidate and a strong and
constructive platform, the sooner will

The only issue in the great steel
workers strike, as brought out by the
testimony of John Fitzpatrick, chair
man of the steel and iron workers
committee for organization, is wheth
er the plants of the great steel trust
shall be unionized or remain "open"
to both union and non-union labor.
In other words the issue is whether
the 146 plants, mines and works of
the steel trust with two and a half bil
lion dollars capital invested, shall be
managed by the m.çn who invested
the capital or be managed by, Mr.
Fitzpatrick and the other officers of
the union who have not a cent invest
ed in any of the plants nor are they
even employed In them as laborers.
In his testimony before the senate in-,
vestigating committee Mr. Fitzpatrick
said that "neither wages nor condi
tions are an issue in this Strike, it is
the question of unionizing the shops."
And Mr. Fitzpatrick and Ms associ
ates control the union.

This statement that "all men are
born equal" with which statesmen
love to play, seems absurd to the
thinking men. Some are bom with
brains, others without. Some are
born with energy and the will to do,
others are contented to drift. Crim
inalogists tell us that "crime is hered
Itory and many men are born crimin
als." Kids of very tender years de
velop the tendencies that govern them
in life. Some are constructive, others
are destructive. Some are bom lo
be leaders and others bom to be led,
while still others are born to be
driven. Abqut the only place we
know where "all men are equal" is in
an insane asylum or a penitentiary
and the "equality" about which social
ists and bolshevists rave exists there
as it exists nowhere else. But the
equality is the equality of degrada
