the lnborer and his hire. What are the

Civilization is based upon labor?human,
animal, mechanical. What we call capital
is at bottom only accumulated labor. The
day laborer lays brick in a wall; that im
labor. He eaves up a part of his wage,
and that becomes capital. Mechanical labor,
by which most of the world's work is
now done, is human labor invested in machinery,
and working through the same.
Of course, money or capital is aecurcd
not only through saving and invention,
but in many other ways; yet human effort
back of it all. and it becomes a sort of
call loan upon the bank of labor. Was it
not Emerson who said, "He that hath .1

Before asking what the letter or spirit of
the 15ible teaches on the labor question, let
us facc the situation of to-day. Organized
labor and capital are i:i conflict. There
are strikes and rumors of strikes. Each
strike is a battle in the war.
it may dc well to observe tliat organized
labor has as vet only a traction of the total
labor army, but it ;s i fraction that is increasing.
Why this warfare? Because labor on the
one hand is dhsatisued with its share of
the rewards of industry, and because, on
the otV'?v, capital constantly seeks to reduce
the cost of production by opposing
the demands of labor.
Other factors, however, enter into tho
situation. One arises from the development
of the modern corporation. Whether
corporations have souls or not, they lack
in large measure the element of pciswnality
and the personal touch. Men who work
for a corporation are working in the main
for an unknown entity. Now, we remember
that among tin old-time Romans the
word for .sti anger was also the* word for
Further, there has been much dishonesty
in corporate dealings. Take such things as
the corrupt i urchave of public franchises
below value, the increase ii; cost o. certain
necessities of life by reason oi unjust combinations
to keep up prices. These and
other similar crimes against the coir.iv.unity
have done much to inflame not only
labor, but the gvntral public against capital.

Still other grounds of hostility might be
referred to, such as the natural, though
(sinful, envy of the rich by the poor; tin;
ostentatious luxury of the rich, the growth
of class distinctions between the poor and
the rich :. ! the inequality *?i' pecuniary

wealth beyond the dreams of avarice, but
:o their honor they did not. On the other
hand, the men who introduced such improved
and cheapened methods as the 15essemer
process of producing steel gained
money by the hundred millions. So people
are tempted to ask, "Have not rome
men been rather ?elti?h, to say the least,
in the acquisition of their wealth? And
may they not* have obtained a litt'.e tiore
than their share?"
Before we ^o further let us ask what is
to be the probable outcome of the war between
labor and capital? Is it an irrepressible

1 need hardly remind yon that l.!ie great
character dominating every pat?e ?f the
Neir Testament was n poor man, without,

On the on# hand and capital on the other
may b? imagined. It is well put by Dr.
llenry J. Van Dyke:
"Never in a costly palace did I rest on

Never in a hermit's cavern have I eaten |
idle bread.
Born within a lowly stable, where the cat- I
tie round Me stood.
Trained a carpenter in Nazareth, I have
toiled and found it good.
They who tread the path of labor follow
where My feet have trod;
They who work without complaining do

Where the many toil together, there am I
among My own:
Where the tired workman slecpeth, tlioro
am I with him alone.
I, the peace that passeth knowledge, dwell
amid the daily strife.
I, the bread of heaven, am broken in the
sacrament of life."
While there is never any bitterness in
Ihe Master's utterance regarding wealth,
His views may be readily gathered from
such parables as that of Dives and Lazarus
(Luke xvi:l'J).
Again, we have the same attitude in the
}>ut?saKe on tnc cainci and the needle's eye
(Matthew xix:23).
Not only was the Loril poor, but TIis
apostles were all poor men. who placed no
value on wealth. Paul, the greatest cf
apostolic preachers, supported himself by
manual lalio.-, and taught "They that will
be rich fall into temptation and a snare,
and into many foolish and hurtful lusts,
which drown men in destruction and perdition.
For the love of money is the root
of all evil" (1. Timothy vi:0-10). Or. the
whole, the attitude of the New Testamc.it
is one of warning against the seductions of
WTJlll ll
The cvangclic.il churches stand r.pon the
word of Scripture, and fo r.i sympathy
with labor. In fact, of some 7,000,000 of
male members in the evangelical churches
of our land, not less than 0,000,000 are
wage earners or manual laborers. .So that
the claim that the modern church lias departed
from the position occupied by the
apostolic church is not, well founded.
What, then, from the letter and spirit c?
the Bible in connection with the tcachiu i
of experience is to be suggested as a means
of curing the quarcl between labor and
rirsx, let (here be clorer personal reinlions
between the rich and the poor. Let
thfi meet together in the fellowship rf
(!od's house f.nd the Divine Fatherhood.
Oui cf mutual acquaintance will come mutual
respect, and a recognition of a common
You may remember Emerson's story of
the quarrel between the mountain and tliG
squirrel, where he says:
"The mountain and the squirrel
Had a quarrel,
And the former called the latter 'Littlo
Him lt'nlioil
'Yoi: are doubtless very bir,
But all sorts of tilings and weather
Must be taken in together
To make up a year
And a sphere
And I tiiink it no disgrace
To occupy my place.
If I'm not as laige as yo",
You are not so small as I;
And not half so spry.
I'll not deny you make
A very pretty squirrel track.
Talents differ, all is well and wisely put;
If 1 cannot carry forests on my Lack,
Neither can yon crack a nut."
i lien there should be a deeper interest
taken by capital in the financial well-being
ot' labor. Such dcviccs as proiit sharing,
old age pensions and the like will give the
workman a sense of greater security and
of partnership with capital.
Interest taken in the proper housing of
labor, although not always' appreciated, is
in the right line. So, too, the introduction
of the social secretary as an intermediary
between the corporation and the employe.
Another thing needed, not so. much in
the interests of labor or capital, but in the
interests of the innocent non-combatants,
is compulsory arbitration, applied at lea-t
where the public sailers intolerable inconveni:
ik", as in the case ot a riwlioad, telegraph
or coal strike. Compulsory arbitration
may nor a i ways be satisfactory to tho
coinLal.uits, out it is essential to tlie pjaco
and comfort of iliore not involved in the
controversy. This remedy, or military control,
as m iie recent railway strikes in
Holland and Austria, should be used to
protcct the public.
The sovereign remedy, however, must bo
not by recourse to 1-?gal means, but by the
application of the rovnl l.i? .l .m?c
fitter speaking of tin- relations between liio
licit ami the j t or, soy?: "If ve fulfill the
royal law according to the Scripture, thou
shalt love t'nv neighbor as thyself, ye <lo
well." This is the aqua rcgia, the royal
solvent. in which we may sohe all tiie hard
asperities of conflicting interests.
Ojiiy as men coine to kr.ow (Jod through

Jove tiieir fellow men, will it i>?.- jxissihle to
solve the-e c,uCkt;ons or controversy in a

What we need, after all, is nci. measures,
but men.

Trying to Discover Indian Antidote
for Poison.
Although rattlesnakes are considered
dangerous from a poisonous
standpoint, they are very insignificant
when compared with the dreaded Gila
monster of the sandy deserts of the
Mouth western United States. l'rof.
William Wetherbee, who has been
studying thesi* desert creatures, has
made a number of very interesting
and important discoveries as to their
nature and general habits. This
lizard shaped animal when full grown
measures about eighteen inc'nes in
length, and in girth is about the size
of an ordinary boy's arm. Its tail
composes one-third the length of its
body, and its skin is of a postular
nature and matley in color, giving a
I rniiiliO. .....I -
- u.iu i;iunu cutrci.
Its legs are placed on its body similar
in character to those of a lizard,
but it has none of the rapidity iii
movements of that animal. It seeks
the hottest places in the desert, and
delights in heat ranging about l"-5
dog. According to I'rof. Wetherbee,
science does not know of a single antidote
to the poison omitted from this
animal, and i! was in hope of diseovI
ering such that lie made a recent soI
journ in the deserts of Arizona and
I California. The rapid increase of
I settlers in this section of the country, j
owing to the recent strides made by j
| the reclamation projects, has made it
' necessary for the .nithnrlMeK in l.mk
to their Eafvty from this dreaded animal.
Slncc the departure of the Indians
from this part of the country these
monsters have much inc reas? d in
numbers, as tiro Indians hilled them
off formerly in large quantities. The
Mualipis, a tribe of Mexican Indians
are said to have a remedy for the bite
? of the gila monster; but t'.iis, how!
evtr, is kept secret by the tribe, and
I all the inducements so far made huvv
; be.'n without results in trying to oh:
tain even the smallest portion of this
coveted antidote. The President of
Mexico himself ev n went among the
Indians and tried to secure the secivt.
Unlike most poisons of animals,
I which are generally of an acid com
position, this exception is alkaline in
Death soon follows the bite of the
animal. During the professor's experiment.
a Mexican assistant was
caught by the thumb by one of the
animals, and the result was he died
within twenty minutes, after first falling
into a stupor. Another ease was
noted of a half-Mexican girl who had
be.n bitten. She at first wns seized
with paralysis. A little later she
cried that her head was splitting.
Gradually, however, the pain left her,
and a few minutes before expiring she
lapsed into unconsciousness. During
these developments she lived about
two hours and a half after being bitten.
