cb Who Is tHe CKristian?
bf In answer to an article in a local sheet entitled “The Merchant and the | Union.” Like Polly Pry, they must be looking for public sentiment, but it is mistaken identity. Who comprises the majority of the public if the toil ers do not? I will inform our little weeper that the American Labor union is not the Miners’ union, as he pleases to call it, but an organization com posed of men who do not toil underground or around the min< s, mills or smelters, and a union man no matter what his occupation can not be a scab and a union man at the same time. The closing of the stores at 8 o’clock and on Sundays, means fifteen hours less toil to the clerk and will eventually mean less hours to all clerks who fall in line. I have not attended church very often but when I did I saw the smiling countenance of the complainer. He must be, if he is the author of the article, like some of our temperance lecturers who never fail to have a bottle with them in case of snake bites. He is the first church member I ever saw who did not favor Sunday closing. This little article in the paper reminds me of the mine operator who expects the miner to work for $2.50 a day and ride six miles to work and when asked to itemize living expenses he starts in with his house rent at $5O per month, his horse feed and care, $2O per month, his T-bone steaks at twenty cents a pound and everything in proportion. Our mine operator is good at figures. I will itemize it for him for the average miner : With family of three children, $10; horse feed, sg; meat bill, $10; groceries, $25; fuel. $4; drv goods, boots and shoes. $10; mine doc tor's bill, $l. Now then, the toiler must not get sick, or his family, or his horse; he cannot lay off for a day’s recreation for when he does, he goes behind, financially, and at these figures he goes behind any way. You look at the ledgers of your merchants —nothing speaks for itself more than they do. J. E. C.
