log of the soldlort of the Jloiicnn war In

Thk cry of "Communiiml" hai become
a weapon with which certain ncwspapcri
and monopolliti strike at ovory reforma
tory movement. "Whea It wai suggested
that the Statoihould regulato tho charges
of railroad companies, the monopolists do
Bounced the suggestion as of Communlit
origin. When it wai proclaimed that
lawyers ihould not bo put upon tho bench
who bad declarod tho people havo no
right the railroad companies wore bound
to respect, the monopolitta denouncod tho
proclamation ai tho outgiving of Commu
nists. To euloglza liberty hai bocomo
Communlim. To aiiert that demagogues
ihould not be permitted to lead tho gov
ernment into corruption is Communism.
To apeak of tho rights of the peuplo la
Communlim. Tho unwillingness of tho
workmen of Chicago to starve- li Commun
lim. Their demand for broad is Commun
lim. Their dissatisfaction with a monotary
syitem that itarvei thorn whilo It permit)
peculator and monopolitta to accumulate)
millions of dollars in a few daya, iado
nounced as of the essence of Communism1
for which the bayonet, sword and can
non are auggeited as tho romody.
It li to bo hoped this cry will
deter no one from attempting to
tranglo all abuses of tho rights of tho
peoplo et tho ballot box that It will not
enable the monopoly lords to perraanontly
fallen themaolvea upon tho p'i' Mr, that
reservoir from wlflch tboy ha-, i obliilnl
wealth and power that they havo no right
to enjoy.
A WORD FOR ROUTON.
Tho Jonesboro 'Advortitor,' And not a
few of the citlzcnt of Union county, dis
satisfied because of the non.complotioti of
the Cairo &St. Louli railroad, nro now
indulging in tho luxury of abusing Mr.
Routon, one of tho directors of tho com
pany. In their opinion If their abor
tions are to bo bolioved Mr. lluutoni
responsible for the delay that has occurred
jn the construction of tho road is respon
sible for the Chicago flro, one of tho (tum
bling blocks of the enterprise; is to blame
for tho French war, another of tho stum
bllsf blocks, and wat tho immediate cane
or tho prevailing financial distress, tho
great stumbling block still lying In the
way of the company. Tho 'Advertiser'
is anxious to know when Mr. Houtuu pro.
pose to finish the road, and Mr. Tom, Is
sura the people will not onduro tho tut
pense of lack of kuowUdge on this sub
ject any longer. Mr. Dick has no doubt
that, if Mr. Routon had not ben made a
director, Jay Cooko & Co., would not havo
failed, and the littlo road would have
been completed long ago. Mr. Harry Is
willing to 'swear that tho appointment of
Mr. Routon to a position on tho board of
directors, was tho cause, although a tuhto
quent occurrence, of tho Into
total ocllpso of tho tun.
How all thit li silly abuso. Senslblo
persons, who are also honest persons,
would not indulgo In it. How can Mr.
Routon be held responsible for the cauui
the effect of which is delay In tho com
pletion of the road ? Ho was not a di
rector when the contract was inado with
Messrs. Pyon & Co., who, when the
contract was made, wero Ufot.it bore 1)0
llevad to bo and were perfectly solvent
business mon, who had- had luro expe
rience In the building of railroads. Too
tisne for the completion of the road did
not expire until last September, when
it was still unfinished. Was Mr. Uouton
the cause of that failure 7 Was it ex
pected of him, the contractors having
failed to carry out the contract on their
part, that he would himself, with hit little
pick and ehovel, take oil his coat and roll
up bis sleeve eud complete tbo road in
the twinkling of an eyo, at Ills own proper
expense?
"We know that Mr. Uouton has dune all
be could do a a director to bavu tho C. &
Bt. L. road completod. Ho hai used the
column of hi paper to urge on the work,
he ha attended meetings of the directory
t bis own expanse, for the purj.oso of re
moving obstacle out of It way, and be haa
aot tired In laboring to ecure the road
to his town and county. As a citizen of
Jonesboro be baa a great Intorest in the
surprise. It lucoeii will make bis bus
iness Utter and bis property more valua
tie; its failure will do him no good in
nay way. Condemnation when condem
nation U merited we applaud, but the
crusaoa of tbo grumblers against men
saoruaeeply Interested than they In tho
saeows of the O. A St L. road, is not Just
la any sense! as foollnh and dliagreea
bloat taa grumbling of tbo bouse wife of
currtat aneodoUs a wailing ly.
The caiUron llourbous nro permitting
t. ioiiIki in fall from their oyea. Even
the eld whool-horsc, Hon. Dick Richard-
ton, balki In tho lraco, and thus noigui
his diiplcasuro:
Thcro will bo no proceeding of any
avail had against Judgo Durell, of Lou
isiana, this Oongrosfcjio matter how fla
grant Ms crimes may bavo boon. JSN
drldgo, of Wisconsin, gooi ni ono of tho
conunltloo to Louisiana to loolc up the
testimony against Duroll. It U undor
tlood tho piirt ha li to play, Is to be u
Domocret, and commit that party lu Con
