A SUBLIME SPECTACLE.
Thera hae been called a convention,
to meet la Raleigh on the Wtb at Uh
month to coaaider the labor situation
ie North Carolina. The principal idea
ta to ascertain how non-producers can
be made to work. The cstcimid
Raleigh Times in an editorial has this
paragraph aacat the prepeeltloii:
We da eot expect the convention to
reealt to a beck-to-farm movement on
the part ef idlers, either vicious or In
different; bat the convention can do
something, and wa trust will, to re
lieve the workers at the excess bag
gage represented by those who refuse
to am a living. Wc are far from
convinced that the convention would
be wrong to ask the Governor to cell
'a aped alocccicw of the general as
The convention win no doubt or
composed of horny-handed eons of
toil; those who farm with their mouths
and who like self-exploitation. The
convention will tall about the short
ace of help and then proceed to reso
l&Si'dfi **!• TlaM* bop— e special
meal jt of the legislators will be cell
ed. Homy other people hope no such
monumental felly will be presented.
The farm labor ia scarce because the
farmer has refused to pay labor what
it can earn ia other channels: Parra
labor is scarce because many of the
boys hare gone to war, but the far
mer who expects to keep a atreajr,
able-bodied man on the farm at a dol
lar a day aad Us board can’t hope
tong, because able-bodied man ere
worth two aad a half aad three dollars
at work no harder than farming.
