The Distinguished Prelate Discusses Labor and Capital, The following are some of the noble and patriotic, utterances of Bishop Ire land, In his recent address to the loco motive engineers, at St. Paul: When asked where I stand whether with capital or with labor I answer quickly: I stand with Justice and right eousness, and consequently, I stand with capital for the sake of labor, and with labor for the sake of capital. Tha great thinker of the age, Leo XIII, who loves to be called the pon tiff of the worklngmen, writes: "The sad mistake that is made is to possess oneself of the idea that class is hos tile to class; that rich and poor are in tended by nature to live at war with one another. So Irrational and so false Is this view that the exact contrary Is the truth. One requires the other- capital cannot do without labor, nor labor without capital. Mutuul agree ments result in pleasantness and good order; perpetual conflict " necessarily produces confusion and outrage. The Interests of capital and labor are In tertwlned and Interdependent the one draws Its power of life from the other, the one perishes with the other. A most considerable guardianship of the Inter ests and energies of the one Bhould be the earnest occupation of the other. - The Interests and lights of labor. Of ten have I pleaded for them and loving ly do I plead for thein no. I hate that view of labor which makes it a mechan ical force, like unto the rotation of a railroad or a turbine, purchasable at mere market value. I see at all times the living generator of labor the man, my own brother, and the child of the supreme God, and in availing myself of human labor, I must keep well In mind the dignity and rights of the man. I must have before my eyes the man, and the circle of the life into which man has a ' divine right to expand himself the family; and 1 demand for the laliurer and his family, so far as through Just and rational measures we can reach thereto, the means of decent livelihood, the opportunities to develop Intellect, to care for bodily health and moral and religious growth, to receive a due proportion of the Joys of human existence,1 In recompense of the Ills which, whatever may be done, will not fall to press upon them, nor is it solely for their own sokes that I desire and seek their prosperity and the prosper ity of the tolling millions. , The fruit- fulness and the blessedness of capital the grandeur and strength of the na tion, are linked with labor, and rise and fall with social conditions. In telllgence, bodily vigor, contentment of the heart in the worklngman add a hundred fold to the productiveness of capital, which at the same time is put to Its highest use and serves beBt Its divine purpose when it Is so em ployed as to lift fellowment upward in the scale of mental and social life. It has veen my pride, aa an American citizen, that In no other country Is the worklngman srt well situated in the en joyment of social advancement for him self and his children as in our own United States. Nowhere else is labor bo respected and so remunerative; nc where else are the possibilities In any approaching measure bo large that the laborer of today may be the employer of tomorrow, and In those social condi tions of the masses do I perceive more than In aught else the true grandeur and the true strength of the republic of America. Let me now enter my brief plea for capital. At once you will unite with me In extending over it the shield which covers property, whether this the ex tensive Investment of the rich, or the circumscribed possessions of the poor. Property Ib the very foundation stone of the social fabric; It Is the Incentive and reward of Industry and energy. The Indian tribes have slight regard for property; what Is owned by one may be used and controlled by all; the Indian tribes remain bands of savage Idlers. He who menaces property Is an anar chist, and the anarchist Is the oNadly fic of order, or right, of society. He Is the wild beast solely lont on destruc tion, from which security and civiliza tion never run drift. Labor Is In almolute need of the co operation cf napital. To what purpose is your museulur strength unless cap ital Is iiIkIi to reward It? Without cap ital, be there millions of willing work lngmen, factory doors remain closed, Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report ABSOLUTELY PUIS fields are untllled, .mines hold their treasures in concealment, no hlp plough the seas, no railroads span con tinents. Without capital labor is a la tent, unproductive energy. Why, today, are there among us legions of un employed? Because capital hies away from us. It Is an easy matter in club room and on public square to discuss capital and its obligations and to mark out the channels through which it should flow In order to reach our own hands. As .a- matter of fact, capital emerges into public light or hides Itself In vaults, at its own good pleasure. We must woo It with winning words and acts. It is timid of its life. Make It in secure; It will shun you, and leave you to beat the air with your idle arms. The laws of the financial world are as In flexible as those of the four seasons of the year; the state or the country In which through mob-riots or oppressive legislative statutes, property is endan gered" or made unproductive, will be surely abandoned to their own setrlle resources. The outcry against capital is occasionally ludicrous If it were not dis tressing In Its possible consequences. "We will not," said an acquaintance of mine lately, "toll to pay interest to foreigners holding bonds and stocks of American Industries and railroads." Very well; but, these foreigners will not send over their money to build up your factories, and construct your railroads, In which case you will pay to them in deed no Interest, but neither will you earn bread for yourselves. What la needed often, In all our controversies, Is common sense, in presence of which a hundred wild theories melt away and a hundred complications find quick so lution. America has been for capital and for labor the paradise of nations. Our pros perity has been unparallrled. Our nat ural resources aro rich and varied. Our civil institutions encourage Industry and self-reliance. Let us put to profit our advantages, and be always what Providence has Intended us the first and best of countries. This we shall do by a supreme loyalty on the part of all,. citizen? to rights and duties. It would require but a short Journey along the road of Injustice and violence to make vain all our hopes and reduce our coun try to be a by-word among nations, I anneal to rnnltnl. T anrwnl An luh,.r T appeal to American patriotism, .. " Be It the honor of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers to lead In this- - peaceful warfare In defense of rights and duties.
