lic Total Abstlncnco union Is doing
' a very Important work nnd tho prosL
i dent Is o bo commended for lending
I tho Infltienco of hls.'BTcat'ofllco to-the
w movement.
Strong drink is tho fruitful cnuso
of an Immense amount of misery, nnd
total abstinence, whilo not tho only
remedy, is tho surest preventive. Tho
' president has ndded to tho sum of hu-
man happiness? by his visit to Wilkoa
' barro.
On that occasion " Mr. ItoosOvdlt
spoko ns follows!
.' I nm particularly glad to spenk to
this nudienco of miners nnd their
wives and children, nnd especially to
speak undor tho auspices of this great
tempernnco society.
In our country tho Tinpplncss of all
tho rest of tho pcoplo depends most of
all upon tho wolfaro of tho wage
workor nnd tho wclfnro of tho f tumor.
If wo can sccuro tho wclfnro of these
two classes wo can bo reasonably cer
tain that tho community as a whole
will prospor. -And wo must novor for
got that tho chief factor in securing
tho wulfnro allko of wage-worker and
of farmer, ns of everybody else, must
bo tho man himself.
Tho only effective way to Mp Any
body is to help him help "himself.
Thcro nro oxccptlonnl times when nny
ono of us needs outsido help, nnd then
it should bo given freely; but normal
, ly each ono of us must dopond upon
his own exertions for his own success.

tiling can bo done by our action taken
' In our collectlvo rapacity through tho
stato and tho nation.
Something more can be dono by com
' btnatlort and organisation among our
JJboIvoh in our prlvato rnpncitles as clt
wizens, so long ns tills combination or
organisation Is managed with wisdom

self-respect, whatever tends to help
him overcome tho temptation with
which nil of us nro surrounded, is tho
" benefit not only to him but to tho
wholo community.
No ono society can do mora to help
tho wngo-workor than such n tcmporf
nnco society ns that which I nm now
Addressing. It Is of Incalculable con
soquonco to tho man liimself that ho
ehould bo sober nnd temperate, nnd it
Is of oven nioro consequence to his
wlfo nnd his children) for it is a hard
'and cruel fact that In this lifo of oars
tho sins of tho man aro often visited
most heavily upon thoso whoso wol
faro should ho his ono special enre.
For tho drunkard, for tho man who
loses his job because ho cannot con
trol or will not control his deslro for
liquor nnd for vIcIouh pleasures, wo
'havo a fooling of nnger and contempt
mixed with our pltyj but for his un
fortunnto wifo and little ones wo fee

tendcrest kin).

it
each pt us needs to keep steadily bo
foro liis eyes tho fact that hto is
wholly unfit to tako part In tho work
of governing others unless ho can first
govern himself.
Ho must stand up manfully for his
own rights; lid nrust respect tho rights
of others; ho must oboy tho law and
ho must try to Hvo up to thoso rules
of righteousness which aro abovo nnd
bohlnd all laws.
This applies just as much to the
man of great wealth na to tho man of
mnnll means; to tho capitalist n to
tho wago-workcr. And as ono prnctl
cal point, let mo urge thnt in tho ovent
of 'any difficulty, especially if it is
what is known as n labor trouble, both
sides show themselves willing to mcot,
willing to commit, and anxious each to
treat tho other reasonably and fairly;
each to look at tho other' sido of tho
easo nnd to do tho other justice If
only this courso could bo gonernlly fol
lowed tho chanco of industrial disas
ter would bo minimized.
Now, my frionds, I want to read
you nn extract from a letter I hnvo
just received from a Catholic priest,
whom I know well, nnd whom I know
to bo ns stanch a frlond of tho labor
ing mnn ad thcro Is to bo found in this
country. Now nnd then not loo of
ten it is a good thing for all of us
to hear what is not pcrhiipi altogether
palatable, provided only that tho per
son who tells ttio truth is our genuino
frlond, knows whnt no is talking about
(oven though ho may not sco all sides
of tho caso), ami tells us whnt ho has
to say, not with a desire to hurt our
with tho transparent
' purpose to do us good.
Willi this foroword, hero is a part
of tho leiter:
"I would humbly recommend that
you lend your chtlro weight to tho
uirnm which tho Cotliollc Total Abstl
nonco union of America represents,
nnd especially no in relation to tho
working clnsses of this country, for
whom it is doing so much good. You
know thnt tho temperanco movement
Is a potent auxiliary to tho institu
tinns of our country In buildlni; up a
Iwttcr manhood, nnd a triior Ohrlstl
ntilty among our citlwns. It played
a vory important part in tho two coal
strikes of 1000 nnd IMS, respectively,
by keeping tho men sobor, nnd thus rc
movlng tho danger of riotous nnd un
becoming conduct. Thero is ono dis
couriiging featuro connected with tho
upwnrd tendency of tho wngo scalo
among tho workmen of this country.
Tho higher tho wages, tho moro monoy
thoy spend in ealoons. Tho shorter
tho hours, tho moro thoy nro inclined
to absent themselves from homo. An
apparent disregard for family ties is
growing nmong tho poorer classes
which will ovcntually lead to a disre
gard for tho blowings our country af
fords them, Hcnco, with nn Increnso
of wuges a corresponding movoment
for bettor manhood, nobler cllUonshlp
and truer Christianity should bo set
on foot1. Tho dignity of labor should
bo maintained, which can bo dono only
through tho lovo that a man should
hnvo for his work, and through tho lt
tvlllgenco which bo puts luto it. A
steady hand and sober mind nro neces
sary for this. ITcnco, tho necessity of
tho temperance ennso, nnd Of tho ef
forts which organised nbstnlnors nro
putting into tho movomeut."
Now, in what is hero writton this
priest doos not mean thnt tho tonden
ey is to grow worse; but he means
that with shorter hours and increased
ivngea thero Is a tendency to go
wrong which must 'bo offset by move
ments, such as this great temperance
tnovtmont, and similar efforts for 'so
cial and civic betterment, or clso tho
increaso in leisure and money will
prove a curso instead of a blessing, I
strive never to tell nnyono what I do
not thoroughly bcllovo, nnd I shall
