ilH,l OOODWIN'S WEEKLY. I

! (ft rj The worst feature of the great strike in the
1 m m East is the dissatisfaction it will create in the
j I: V ranks of labor and the impression it will create
I jj 1 iffl in the minds of the strikers that there are easier
I t W ways to obtain a living than by working for it.
I I j H Demagogues will add to this unrest for purposes
l j of their own. The labor world seems to be swift-
M i ly approaching the condition of 1892 when, with
1 M ? a sullen, senseless perverseness they elected Mr.
1 Cleveland and by the same votes cast for him
I Vm j voted themselves out of work for four years. They
I S jffi forget that the days of miracles are past, that it
ft (I is impossible to obtain something for nothing;
m If forget that the royal road to independence is
M j through intelligent labor; that Carnegie, Hanna,
St Schwab and all the men whom they call magnates,
j jm 'j never won anything by strikes, but by their
S ,J brains and hands, through the royal avenues of
jt r intelligent labor,
j ", This is the only road and it is a pity that there
(' ' is a mighty class of men throughout this great Re-
$' public who are trying to evade that inviolable

A NEW MINING BILL.
The Action of the Exchange.
The proposition to have a bill passed by the
next Legislature, which will compel all mining
companies to issue a statement periodically stat
ing the financial and physical condition of their
properties, should pass without a struggle, and
everyone interested in the mining industry of the
State should bring all possible influflence to bear
to make it a law. If such a bill had been passed
years ago, many an investor in some of "the rotten
ones" that have been regularly listed and dealt in
would bo better off.
A property that cannot stand publicity should
not be worth much to the investorand it would be
a difficult matter to bubble a property if people
knew what it was.
Another thing of interest to investors is the
action of the governing board of the Salt Lake
exchange declaring that all companies not listing
before November 1st will have to find some other
place to trade in their respective stocks. That is,
they can no longer be traded in on the open board.
The rule itself is right. The exchange is one of
the city's institutions which must be supported,
and which is not supported by the dues of its
members. The payment of the listing fee by newly-incorporated
companies should be a small mat
ter, and the exchange is there for them as well as
the daily trader. Companies owe it to their stock
holders to be listed on the exchange, but few com
panies answer the demands of shareholders, and it
is a question whether their influence would have
any effect on companies. At the same time, such
a rule cutting off trading on a man's stock, and
giving him no market, might work a hardship.
"We will see what the unlisted companies do,
and then discuss the subject further.
The ways of fortune fret the soul
Of him who has his bread to win;
For some were born to own the coal,
And some were born to put it in.

Doin's Politically, I
The political campaign in the East is in
larger sense merely a preliminary scrap in an I
ticipation of and preparation for the battle 0
The President has received many State en-1
dorsements this year, but still we have an im
pression that he will not be nominated in the
next Republican National convention, for his
chiefest support is in the States that cast few
electoral votes. We still have a thought that
Mark Hanna will either be nominated or will rec
ommend the man who will be nominated, for the
immense power of the man is no longer doubted
It is not impossible that the candidate will be
Spooner of Wisconsin, nominated with Hanna's
endorsement, for now-a-days public sentiment
Republican sentiment is crystalizing in his favor
It is thought now that on the Democratic Bide
the contest will be between Bryan and Hill, if
Hill takes the prize, then Bryan will be a Popu
list candidate, and he will succeed unless Charlie
Towne gets the p.um.. Charlie is rich now and
is a bigger man intellectually than is Mr. Brian
and he is not without ambition.
In Montana a campaign is going on which,
judging by the tone of the Montana press, is not
ten degrees removed from savagery. The Re
veille, Heinze's organ, is fierce beyond all de
scription, charging crimes enough on the opposi
tion to fill a dozen penitentiaries, while the de
nunciations of Heinze by the opposition is appall
ing. There are no limitations on the expenditure
of money, and it is impossible to avoid the con
elusion that the State will be debauched political
ly by the campaign as no State of the Republic
ever was before.
Judging by present signs, Idaho will go Re
publican for State officers and the Legislature
will be Democratic. The last mixed Democratic
Populist and Incendiary Legislature of Idaho ger
rymanded the State in a way which the manipula
tors believed would make It permanently Demo
cratic. It will probably save to the combine the
Legislative majority, but the Republicans are
sanguine that they can save the State officers.
In Nevada when the whole field is looked over,
the signs point to the election of Mr. Cleveland
for Governor, for the men who have been dls
tinctively silver men and who were formerly Re
publicans, will hardly vote for Mr. Sparks except
through personal friendship, and on that score as
many old Democrats will vote for Mr. Cleveland
as there will be Republicans who will vote for
Mr. Sparks. The personal following of both
men is very great and justly so, but with the silver
men and Republicans united, the victory should
be with the Republicans, for the general policy of
the Republican party has brought inestimable
benefits to Nevada.
Should the campaign be finally reduced to a
money basis, the Democrats have much the longer
purse. Mr. Sparks has plenty of money: he is
a game sport through and through, and does not
for a moment admit the possibility of his defeat.
while Mr. Newlands will have the Sharon estate
behind him and he has coveted the United States
Senatorship so long that this year he will mate
the fight of his life to win The closing days of
the campaign in Nevada this year will be very
