Vice-President Teddy Roose
velt, who has been out of the
public eye for some weeks, has
been heard from again. He is
out in Colorado chasing Coyotes.
While the Vice-President is chas
ing smaller game he has his eye
on larger gaate?the Presidency?
and is no doubt busy laying his
plans for 1904.
The great steel strike now on
bids fair to become t.ne greatest
in onr country's history of great
strikes. This strike is not brought
abont because men receive not
enough wages, net because they
have been treated harshly, but
because a great corporation
would not consent to unionize
mills that were run by non-union
labor. This strike will, if carried
on, cause thousand* to suffer,
cause the loss to la borers of mil
lions of dollars in wages that are
rightfully t heirs and may cause
much bloodshed and loss of life.
These sti-ikes are getting to be
so numerous that they are be
coming to be a most threatening
menace to our social, nioi-al and
industiial welfare. There is gx-eat
need for some legislation that
would remedy the strike evils by
getting at the foundation and
destroy the germs that produce
such an unhealthy and poison
ous plant. Were the power of
the trusts curtailed strikes would
no doubt be less numerous, but
still strikes will continue as long
as labor unions pay " walking
delegates" to "agitate."
