ALU THEIR DEMANDS GRANTED
First Strike In History, at Rome 310
Vears B. C Resulted In Vic
tory for Strikers.
While rummaging in ancient books
for some special information about
the Roman republic, I happened on a
passage from Livy which gives an ac
count of the first strike recorded In
history, as far as 1 know, writes C
W. Pafflow In Typographical Journal
The strike was engineered at Rome
S10 years B. C, and the account re
ferred to will be found in book 9,
chapter 30. The story runs as fol
lows: "The public pipers, or flutists, a part
of the religious establishment, called
a strike and then left Rome and went
to Tybur, a nearby town, because the
censor had forbidden them "to feast
and carouse in the temple of Jupiter,
which had clways been their preroga
tive. There was now nobody to fur
nish the music at the sacrifices and
"The people, with pious concern,
feared that the wrath of the gods
would fall upon them. The senate
sent messages to Tybur to prevail on
the musicians to. return. The strikers
held out Then the Tyburltes tried to
persuade them, but with no more suc
cess. 'The astute citizens, however, know
ing the weakness of the Roman pip
ers, hit on a plan. They feasted thera
and plied them with old wine until
they were drunk as lords. They then
bundled them Into carts and sent them
back to Rome.
"When they woke up next morning
they found themselves in the forum.
The people flocked around them and
welcomed them with delight; for no
pipers, no religion. The citiz?ns urge 1
them to go to their usual duties. The
pipers agreed to do so If their old priv
ileges of carousing In the temple and
masquerading cn the streets nine days
in the year were allowed them. Their
demands were granted, and the strik
ers returned to work."
The Philosophy of Greed.
Says that eminent financier and
humanitarian, John W. Gates:
"To be successful you must have
more brains than henrt."
That is the religion of the dollar,
the cardinal tenet in the creed of the
money lover. It represents the alpha
and omega of his operations in the
realm of things financial, and he cm
ploys It to bolster up his sordid be
lief that the end always Justifies the
It all depends upon what Is meant
by the word "success," however, we
think. If th mere matter of accu
mulating money is the ultima Thule
of. success, pcrlnps Mr. Gates is
right. Doubtless the maxim fits his
iwn peculiar case precisely and to an
exact dot. Happily that is not the gen
eral conception of success; we are
optimistic enough to believe it no less
than to hope it. A lot of successful
people in this world live in cottages,
and do not ride in automobiles and
take European trips. They are suc
cessful because they are contented
snd satisfied with the simpler thlngt
of life. They sleep well at ni::hf
they digest what they cat. They iool
the whole world in the face, for the;
owe not any man. They have mor
heart than brains, in Mr. dates' phi;
osophy, and hence are not successful.
