substance the form of the substance
has been changed, no substance de
stroyed. Substance always abides.
The universe may be divided into
two parts, the ego and the non ego.
The ego is subject to the non ego in
part, but also in. part to the ego.
What is without governs us in part,
that which is within governs us part
ly. Our mind and body have parts
in determining our actions. Where
is the proof that we are governed by
any one part?
Some prehistoric man had a dream
or vision, tyrants and despots saw
they could use the idea to continue
their exploitation and have pushed
the idea for all it is worth. The
theory that has observation and rea
son on its side is democratic. All
parts are interrelated, mutually de
pendent, some may be superior to
others, but none are superior to all
the others or greater than the whole.
Substance is eternal but everchang
ing form. D. F. Sweetland.
THE RIGHT TO OWN-The arti
cles appearing in The Day Book by
N. D. Cochran are both interesting
and instructive, especially the one
entitled, "Lawson Gives a Tip on
Sam Insull's Game."
All the facts stated are but the ef
fects of a cause. The power which
Lawson holds and which he sells at
so much per inch, the cunning, de
ceit, avarice and greed developed by
Sam Insull and his class and the Ju
dasism of Fisher in the betrayal of
the people are the natural outcome
or the harvest the people must reap
from the seed they have sown
(through their ballot) in the recogni
tion of, and the perpetuation of, a
form of organized human society
which allows a private individual to
own a public or natural opportunity.
This is the tap root of all evil and we
must lay the ax to the root of the
tree if we wish to destroy its fruit.
And who am I that I should have the
right to delegate to my representa
tive the right to sell my children's
birthright to the things which they
must use to live? These evils can
only be overcome by the substitution
of public ownership of the thing pub
licly used for that of private owner
ship of the things publicly used and
democratic management instead of
When the laws of the land (which
are nothing more thantheintelligence
of a majority of its people) plainly
read that no private person shall i
own or operate a public or natural
opportunity for private gain, then
your alderman or any other public
servant has nothing to sell, so you
see he cannot graft if he would. But
this would be socialism.
Now, if it is not irreligious for a
Democrat, Republican or Progres
sive to believe it is right and just for
the people to publicly own the post
office, the schools, parks, fire de
partment, Panama canal, etc, how
can we call Socialists irreligious
when they simply wish to extend the
ownership of other publicly used
things to the things already owned?

TAXI RATES. Will some reader
please answer this question for me?
What is the legal taxicab rate from
the L C. depot to the Morrison hotel?
I have paid four different rates, as
'American Taxi, 40 cts.; Parmalee,
75 cts.; Atlas, 60 cts.; Independent
owner, 80 cts.
All these taxicabs are equipped
with taximeters except Parmelee.
Why is there not one standard rate?
IN THE SCHOOLS. Religion
should not be taught in the public fi
schools, as I do not believe any child
can learn two studies at the same
time. If we are to have religion and 7
education in the public schools, why ;
do we need any churches? Keep .
religion and education in their
places. L N. ,
