OFFICIAL CITY AND C~UNI~ NEWffP&t~g WHY SHOULD WE PAY FOR IT ? The Mandan Pioneer and Grand Forks Herald very per- tinently discuss the big strike down east in the textile indus- tries, which seems to be backed by the government to the ex- tent of taking care of the needs of the strikers at the expense of the employers and general taxpaying public, as follows: The American Iron & Steel Institute, an organization of manufacturers of steel sent out as its Labor Day greeting to the nation a most pessimistic report, says the Pioneer. The institution maintains a statistical department that notes in- crease or decrease in orders, in production, in employes, in hours worked and wages paid. The total of all employes ex- cluding executives for July, 1934, was 383,673 as against 415,966 in June, The number of hours worked per week was 35.7 in June and in July 24.4, while the total payrolls for the month of July was $26,150~272, as against $40,630,314. The figures for August are expected to show continued declines. Steel has been considered a barometer of' business. We have had 18 months of Democratic administration. The first four months from March 1 to July I, 1933, before the New Deal measures were enacted showed virtually all the gain that has been made in the 18 months. So far as employment is concerned we are back where we were in July, 1933, despite the expenditure of millions to bolster up the NRA and other New Deal programs. Today the nation is witnessing the spectacle of a huge strike of 800,000 employes in the textile industry. It is pri- mar-fly a strike to reduce working hours and to retain the present weekly wage. It's one of the freak ideas of our lady cabinet member that we can idle ourselves into prosperity by working less. And ~ne of the astounding things in connec- tion with the strike is that the federal relief agency has agreed to feed and clothe the strikers. The Grand Forks Herald in commenting on this new phase of the strike says, under the heading "Another Long Bread Line :" "It is estimated that the textile strike Just ordered will effect some three million persons, these including the strik- ers themselves and their dependents. These persons, who have heretofore been maintained out of the earnings of those actually employed in the industry, will be out of funds with- in a very short time. It is the declared policy of the federal relief administration to provide relief for the destitute, no matter what the cause of the destitution, and, specifically, to provide relief to strikers who are in need. "On this basis employers of all kinds, and employes who are not out on strike, must pay taxes to provide food and raiment for those who, whether for good or bad reasons, have seen fit to quit work. In the past provision has been made for the maintenance of strikers out of what are known as strike benefit funds. These funds are derived from assess- ments levied upon the members of the union affected. But some formalities have been observed in awarding these bene- fits. In general before a strike in one of the organized trades affi|tated with the Federation of Labor becomes "legal" the facts relating to the controversy must be reviewed by some central authority, and not until this is done ~nd the strik.e ig found to be warranted can the strikers claim payments from the benefit fund, " ~n the p~sent strike this situation is reversed. In ~effect the government invited workmen to strike and promis- ed to m~tain them and their dependents ~s long as they re- main idle. Thus the employer is taxed to pay for the keep of employes who hope, by keeping up their strike to wear him out and force concessions from him. And the workmen who have not struck, but who continue in their employment while they seek through negotiation the settlement of any differ- ences which they may have with their employers, they too must pay taxes to maintain those who prefer industrial war- fare to industrial peace. All of which seems to justify the statement often made, that this is a topsy-turvey world." It is something for the sober minded, industrious citizen to ponder. Why should the ordinary citizen keep at work ? Why not all drop our tools and demand the same generous treatment from our government ? Is it any wonder that in- dustry lags with the uncertainty as to what the administra- tion will do next ? COMPULS'()RY ARBITRATION After a large number of people have been killed, a sti]~ wounded and millions in property values pro- the general textile strike, the talk of ari- resumed, but if such a settlement comes it will to those victims of man's inability to ~se of settling differences instead of insisting destruction. It is a moot question as to whether this strike was ~rought in good faith to ameliorate working conditions or to force congress to change laws relating to labor favorable to In the latter case, if true, we have a , brings up the question of whether or not we by force, as exemplified by strikes and pressure on the lawmaking body. If so, the people will be at the mercy of any organized force, which, though a sm~l minority, can bring pressure of various kinds to bear on the lawmakers, who are generally cowards in the face o f a bunch of militant voters, that the great unorganized ma- jority is powerless to combat. In the previous attempts to arbitrate or allow govern- mental mediation both sides to the controversy are to blame. it seeming to be the policy of the strikers to fight and depend on brute strength and destruction of property rather than back their brains against those of the employers, a foolish thing in the face of the strong tendency of the federal gov- ernment to favor the worker. Millions of dollars in losses to employers and workers, miliions that are eventually passed on the innocent consumer, L hardship to families of the strikers, could be avoid- were amicably discussed between the par- and final decision to and by a special ' commission, in otherwords, compulsory arbitration. the destructive kind at a time when all hands their feet once more shake confidence of and are a deterrent to any new flow es and tend to stagnate, rather and raise a bar to reemployment and prosperity. reports the federal relief set-up is m every state, the politicians, as has in the past, claiming the relief as a personal theirs the original thought of this life saver in other words that there would have been no And many ill-informed people give the credit, that is entirely Sam's money. Linked in Royal Romance , ,, , , , , Romance and international politics have been linked together with word that Archduke Otto. pretender to the Hapsburg throne, and Prince Maria, youngest daughter of the Italian monarch, shown above, are engaged to be married. Report of the engagement was circulated after the royal family visited Otto's mother, the former Empress Zita, at the latter's villa at Viareggio, i , CUT OUT POLITICAL CINCHING OF RAILROADS Wth the federal courts this year and last sustaining the claim of the railroads that they were overassessed last year and the year before, the present state board of equalization, instead of trying to buck such decisions and putting the state to further expense in defending an outlawed levy, has reduc- ed the railroad valuation around 20 percent to bring the valuations more nearly in consonance with the views of the courts, it being foolish to attempt to further make political capital out of such matters. Last year, as required by law in odd numbered years, the board considered reductions on farm and city real estate and made them to a very material de- gree, so much so that it cut a good deal of ice in the relations of railroads and these properties as making too wide a bulge in taxation that the courts felt should be remedied. We hold no brief for the railroads or other corporations but we cannot bring ourselves to the belief that the rights of corporations should not be equal to those of private citizens, for corporations are but the creation of people of small means seeking avenues of investment for their savings, and unfair deals incorporate taxation ultimately hit these small inves- tors, ana no~ some ogre as the politicians would have us be- lieve. ER-uN-NER OF " ' FOR THE MUZZLE -'~ When we joined the NRA, or that section of it that per- tains to the printing industry, we did not know that we had given the federal government the right to dictate about ev- ery little thing in our print shop, nor that we would have to pay assessments regularly to employ somebody at Chicago or Washington to keep tab on us and tell us frequently where to get off at, lest we be considered a violator of the code and subject to arrest and fines. We tried to shake loose from these fetters, but found it of little use, for our second condition would be worse than the first, so we antied up as demanded and will try get along with the extra expense and supervision as best we may with- out compensating service or returns. We're in the NRA, but not at all a lover of the layout. While we are as yet free to SAY what we please, we can't DO what we please and the time is not far away when the muzzle now in storage will be dangled before every news- paper that exercises the right of a free press. L TAXPAYERS PAY FOR IT The district court's decision that Acting Governor 01son has a right to fire the state tax commissioner from office is proper. No job holder should try to inflict his personality on the head of the government against the latter's wishes, for no administration can succeed with discordant and opposing elements in its cabinet. Besides that, Tax Commissioner Weeks ought to know--probably does known~that anyone accepting a political appointment from one party leader is subject to dismissal with a change of administration. It would be a good thing if civil service rules prevailed in our state government, but in their absence a job holder ought to be able to step .out with good grace when the power that ap- pointed him does. The several recent fights to retain office are largely political and ought to get little consideration, for every one of them cost,money that adds to the taxpayers' burden without any benefit to their welfare, i~or there are no offices at Bismarck which cannot as well be filled by an out as by an in. "Indian summer" will soon be with us. Summers usual- ly are blessed with showers if not heavy rains, but this parti- cular summer in the fall seems to have altogether forgotten what rain looks like. The Langer and Democratic forces have announced the opening of their state campaigns. Both sides have declared for a clean fight, which is splendid, but entirely unlike any- thing North Dakota folks have known in campaign policies. We are beginning to believe that the biggest school- houses don't always turn out the biggest men. , .................... - -- = the season was held at the home of SENTINEL BUTTE children Omar, Luellle and~ta left Monday morni~ for eas~-n points.
