'his rich or powerful brother. This
goes to show how laws are explain
ed according to a man's standing in
society and the financial world. Mo
ney is the boss of those who should
dispense justice equally. But, after
all, what is the use? As long as the
layman does not ues his ballot for his
own benefit he has no right to kick.

A CURE. Some Forum writers
have deplored that a certain group of
self-centered individuals are using
up too much Forum space to adver
tise themselves. It is hard to prevent
this if The Forum is to be kept free
and open to all. But I think there is
a way to cure such over-important,
self-displaying individuals as Allen
Steven, Christ of Halsted St. and Sir
fessor Wheelbarrow. If no one took
any notice of them or mentioned
them in The Forum they would per
haps soon tire of continuously ad
vertising their microscopic personali
ties. Theodor Johnson.
ADVICE TO ARBITRATE GETS NO
APPLAUSE FROM R. R. MEN
"Arbitrate with the railroads" was
the keynote of a speech before Chi
cago railroad employes by Henry D.
Estabrook, a New York att'y in Or
chestra hall last night The meeting
was held under the auspices of the
Railway Men's Advance Republican
However, no mention was made of
the rotten deal the employes got at
an arbitration meeting held last year.
The speech bristled with platitudes.
It asked the men if the railroads could'
afford to meet their demands. It said
their cause was lost now if they de
cided to strike without arbitration.
It asked if the railroad finances are on
the mend and then warned the men
to watch out or the roads would use
the strike to encompass their great
desire government ownership of
their property at its total capitaliza
tion. After warning the men against gov
ernment ownership, Estabrook told
how some government postal em
ployes were fined enormous amounts
for striking in Pennsylvania. He said
wages would be fixed by law and if
the men struck in violation of the law
their leaders would be jailed. "A
strike would almost compel govern
ment ownership," he said.
The applause wasn't at all gener
ous. Many sat still with sullen faces.
What they had heard sounded like
heresy. They were in doubt where to
place the blahie.
