HE people at large cannot on present conditions enter
corporate ownership, and as individual property con
tinues to pass more and more into corporate owner
ship-more than one-quarter having already passed
THIS EXCLUSION OF THE PEOPLE WILL
ENLARGE. It need not be so. The incorporation
. of dishonesty and air castles has brought it on. Common decency
and reasonable methods in corporate organization, by bringing cor
porate ownership to a condi.ion where the people at la ige can safely
re-enter, will bring the cure.
* K ?
The American instinct for the acquirement of property asks no'
impossible guarantees, but it asks and it is entitled to have
KNOWLEDGE OF THE FACTS. Put the organization of all
corporations on a basis that is fixed, and, above all other considera
tions, simple and knowable ; compel them to start on assets reasonably
equal to their capital ; keep them subject to inspection, as banks and
trust comprnies are now organized and inspected, and uncertainty- '
not uncertainty of judgment, but uncertainty respecting the facts
upon which the judgment acts-will disappear.
? * n
In this way, and in this way alone, in my judgment, can this
increasing class of the property of the country be brought back into
the PEOPLE'S ownership. In this way, and in this way alone, will
the government be saved the scandal of putting its stamp upon enter
prises that in many cases call immediately thereafter for prosecution
as schemes to defraud.
Let the aim here be clearly kept in sight. It is above all other
.considerations to REPEOPLEIZE THE INDUSTRIES that have
gone into corporate control. This means that there must be no
tinkering or mending, but reconstruction-the ENTIRE RECON
STRUCTION of what seems to be a settled policy.
vt ? ??
IT MEANS THAT WE MUST TAKE OUR CORPORATE POLICY
FROM ITS FIVE AND FORTY MASTERS AND MAKE OF IT A NA
TIONAL PO ICY; NOT A NEW YORK POLICY, NOR A NEW JERSEY
POLICY. NOR AN ILLINOIS POLICY, BUT AN AMERICAN POLICY.
MATERIAL WEALTH IS THE
* MEASURE OF PROSPERITY
By Rev. E. TRUMBULL Lee of Philadelphia ~~~
(E have been hearing a good deal lately about the con
dition and fate of industries whose securities a few
months ago were considered GILT EDGED. Some
thing must be done to allay popular alarm and to
avoid a panic, and so we have messages from Wash
ington. The treasurer of the United States says, "The nation's
prosperity rests on a sure and steadfast foundation."
, it St If
The secretary of the treasury says, "The prosperity of the
American people is no? measured by the price of stocks and bonds,
but by the output of our farms and our factories and the profitable
employment of labor."
, K Vt 9t
These words are assuring, are strong and wise and are a good
medicine for fear. But they state practically that THE MATE
RIAL WEALTH of our country forms a sure and steadfast foun
dation for and a standard of measurement of prosperity. In so far
as this is a statement made to meet dangerous conditions in the
money market it is true, but in so far as the statement applies to
express a general popular confidence *in MATERIAL PLENTY
as furnishing substantial ground to stand upon it is lamentably false,
like the Laodicean conclusion of our text, the three accounts of

Mob Rule Our Greatest Menace
By Ex-Vice President ADLAI E. STEVENSON
WISn to utter solemn words of warning against an
evil of greater menace to public welfare than is to bc
apprehended from foreign foes-MOB RULE. In
many localities thc spirit of lawlessness has asserted
itself in its most hideous form. Mob rule has at times
usurped legal rule. Outrages have been perpetrated in the name
of summary justice. It need hardly be said that all this is in total
disregard of individual rights and UTTERLY SUBVERSIVE OF
ALL LAWFUL AUTHORITY. By the solemn adjudication of
courts and under the safeguards of law guilt is to be established and
the guilty are to be punished.
Mob spirit is in deadly antagonism to all constituted authority.
Unless it is curbed IT WILL SAP TKE FOUNDATION OF
ORGANIZED SOCIETY. The lynching of a human creature is
no less MURDER when it is the act of a mob than when it is the
act of an individual. There is no safety to society but in an aroused
public sentiment that will hold EACH PARTICIPANT amenable
to law for the consequences of crime, cither perpetrated or abetted.
Let him be accounted a public enemy who would weaken the bonds
of human society and strike down what it has cost our race the
sacrifice and toil of centuries to achieve.

Mayor of New York
HESE are days in which everybody tends TOWARD
THE CITY. It is easy enough to understand this
tendency, for in the cities are a greater volume
and variety of employment ai.d an equally greater
volume and variety of entertainment. The trend of
life in cities, however, has produced some results
the effects of which are only BEGINNING TO BE REALIZED.
It used to be thought that the city had done enough for the child life
of its population when it provided ample school accommodations.
It has come to be realized, however, in all the larger cities of the
country-certainly it is, in my own city-that the crowding together
of many people in the city as the city grows changes the environment
of children MOST UNFORTUNATELY. They are ape to suffer
for air in their homes, and they are likely ti be deprived of oppor
tunities for play. It has come to be believed with us, therefore,
that the city has no higher duty to its own people or to the nation
than to afford natural opportunities for its children for PLAY as
well as for WORK and for study. f
I THINK THERE IS NO INFLUENCE IN OUR DAY MORE EN
COURAGING THAN THE MARKED EFFORT THAT IS BEING MADE
IN THE VARIOUS CITIES OF THE COUNTRY TO LOOK AFTER
THIS SIDE OF ITS LIFE.
* * *
There ia one thing to be said of every city-that just because it
draws into itself the best that is in the country round about it and
often from far afield it is UNDER SPECIAL OBLIGATION to
give back in some form of service that which it has so abundantly
received. I congratulate the people of Chicago upon the splendid
energy with which they have built upon the site of the old fort not
one city, but two-one rising, like a phenix, from the ashes of the
other-in so short a time a's a century. I wish that our cities may
take into themselves the elements of power that come from the
country, as the coal receives the rays of the sun and gives the power
back again in warmtli and light ; that it may bc thc object of every
city not simply to become great in size, but GREATLY TO SERVE
ENGLAND IS AT AMERICA'S MERCY
By Slr GEORGE BARKLEY, Member British Parliament
S things are at present England is AT AMERICA'S* j
MERCY commercially. She has no means of defend
ing herself. Now, we may all say we do not like war,
.Jbjlt.if-a.inan shnnt.*-^* n?tonally WISH v/-?5H^;f|
BACK. England is at present the dumping ground
for cheap goods of all kinds from the United States and from Ger
many and France. America sends to us everything she does not
want, but she has built up a wall in the way of protectiftn which pro
hibits us from sending our goods in return. OUR ONLY HOPE
IS TO ADOPT SIMILAR TACTICS-not that I believe in a
protective tariff, but I think it'would set the people of the United ?
States to thinking, and they would in time open their doors to us, so
that we could find a market for our manufactures. I should like to
see. the whole world adopt free trade.

THE PRESENT INDUSTRIAL DEPRESSION
By CHARLES M. SCHWAB
|N the industrial situation I am an optimist. WALL
STREET DOES NOT REFLECT THE INDUS
TRIAL SITUATION. I do not feel comp?tent
to pass on the causes for the Wall street depression.
I am in the steel business. But I do know that they
cannot and will not directly affect the industry of the country. It
is true that there is a temporary diminution of the
great volume of business that we have been doing,
but that does not mean stagnation.
LABOR'S EXORBITANT DEMANDS HAVE DONE
MORE THAN A N'Y OTHER ONE THING TO BRING
ABOUT THIS SETBACK. THIS IS ESPECIALLY
TRUE OF THE BUILDING TRADE. OF COURSE,
TOO, CAPITAL IS NOT SO FREE AS IT WAS.
I believe that the country may safely look for a steady increase
in the volume of the steel business, and I look upon the steel busi
ness as the basis of the industry of the country and as the surest
indication of general conditions.
We cannot always expect to have thc unprecedented demand
that we had a short time ago. That was an ABNORMAL busi
ness condition. There may be a slight falling off now and then,
but the increase will none the less be steady.
In 1870 the steel products of this country were 1,000,000 tons.
This year they were 15,000,000 tons. That doesn't look like going
backward. And the volume will continue to increase. These little
disturbances, in my opinion, arc NOT ALARMING. They will
come at times from one cause or another. But I predict that we
will have PLENTY OF BUSINESS in this country for a long
time to come.

i AND THE STAGE
g By 'AMELIA BINGHAM ^<
F a minister would reach the people who need a help
ing hand he cannot see REAL LIFE pictur?d hotter
than thrc.igh a good theatrical performance. The
theatrical profession is no worse morally than any
other profession, and it has a service to perform for
humanity as well as has the church. A minister is
gojpd, and he is EXPECTED to be good. Ho,OUGHT to be good,
because he is surrounded by good influences and good people. It's
qiate a different thing to go out and meet all conditions and kinds
of people. Ah, there's the test of goodness !
THE STAGE AND THE CHURCH MUST WORK TOGETHER. THE
CHURCH MUST PREACH AND THE STAGE MUST ENTERTAIN.
EACH CAN COMBINE ENTERTAINING AND PREACHING TO A CER
I TAIN EXTENT.
The theater reaches a class of people that the church does not
rejich, and each is helpful to its following. I frequently receive
letters from persons-and ministers, too-who say they have re
ceived helpful lessons from my plays.
YOU MUST DE AW A LINE BETWEEN CLASSES OF
BELAYS, and not go to those that you would not have members of
your congregation or families attend. Still, if the minister would
not grow stale in his preaching, if he would keep new ideas before
bis people, it would be well for him to attend certain plays.
The best illustrations are always made by CONTRASTS. A
moral can be shown in a clearer light on the stage by having men
and,yyomen of different characters play together side by side, and
in art WE MUST ENDEAVOR TO BE TRUE TO. LIFE:
The minister employs contrasts in his sermon. He does not
always talk of HEAVEN, but tells of that other place so that his
hearers may better understand what is promised for the good and
for the bad.
"Shall we look to the stage for our preaching?" I recently heard
some one ask. I say emphatically, No. Ti we did OUR THEA
TERS WOULD BE EMPTY. Yet our profession is as goad as
any other and is composed of men and women with hearts and souls
like those of other human beings, and yet with all the work there
is no profession in which one's ambition to reach the top is SO
SELDOM REACHED as in this.

not only aids in the changing of his possessions and
of his conception of the world, but still more influ

This error is so evident that men could not be addicted to it
were there not a CAUSE tending to this DECEIT. This cause
is that the changing of the qualities of men commences voluntarily
and demands much from strifes and from work, while the change
in the mode of life is made easily, without internal effort, and has
the aid of a most important and serious activity.
IT IS AGAINST THIS EVIL, THE GREATEST SOURCE OF EVIL,
THAT I WOULD WARN MEN WHO DESIRE SINCERELY TO SERVE
THEIR NEIGHBORS BY THEIR LIFE.
It would be perfect if each could serve men as he pleases, but
that is impossible. There is ONLY ONE WAY OF SERVING

and the perfecting of the true Christian, who naturally always lives

AMERICAN HOME LIFE HAS CHANGED
By Mrs. FRANK LESLIE
THE aspect of home life has changed. Where are be
capped grandmothers of yesteryear? Gone. Instead
we find a frivolous, happy and youthful woman HOLD
I LNG ON TO HER YOUTH LIKE GRIM DEATH.
Where are our firesides and our roasted apples ? Turn
ed into brilliant restaurants and crab salads. And why not? One
influence has. changed the four walls of home into a grand universe.
It is the EMANCIPATION OF WOMEN. Formerly woman
was the essence of home. Now she goes out into the world and
fights shoulder to shoulder with man. When she changed her
darning basket for a typewriter home life was turned about.
The American home is better today than any oilier I know.
The French home is in the street or else a restaurant. When it
rains in Paris the people groan. They find no happiness within
their four walls. Home in England is a woman's prison. She is
subservient to her husband. She is little better than an upper
servant, only she does not draw wages.
