A SENSIBLE VIEW OF THE STRIKE SITUATION We reprint from the Baptist Re porter, the little paper published as the organ of the First Baptist church of. this city, the following, which, we believe, reflects the attitude of the conservative and thinking people of this community: " Let us hope and pray that the present phosphate srike that has created so much strife in our county will speedily be brought to a close for the best interest of all concerned. The pastor of this church has taken no sides in the strike. He has not made a thorough investigation with out which he could not express him self intelligently. We believe in or ganized labor. We believe the pro fessional men, merchants, farmers, fruit growers and cattlemen can con tribute to the efficiency of their bus iness by organizing for their Improve ment and protection. But we are not In sympathy with any of them when they violate the law. This is. a free country and every man is en tlcd to his rights. When any insti tution takes the law in its own hands, and this applies to labor and capital dike, as well as all these organiza tions, It forfeits its right to the fav or and support of the public. .We ex pect to preach a sermon In the hear future on "When the Strife Between Labor and Capital Will Cease." The Scripture speaks on these things and it is the preacher's business to turn the light of Scripture on all the prob lems of life. Whenever the Scr.'pture speaks, he can and should speak re gardless of who it may hurt or help.
