PHILOSOPHY ADRIFT
Social conditions are too glaringly
out of joint to admit of tolerance or
justification and popular remedies
are succeeding to
any appreciable
extent Earnest reformers arc at
a
their wits end for new and more pot
ent devices to meet the worlds dire
need Yet among the multitude of
philosophers of all grades who have
tried to solvo these pressing prob
lems scarcely any reach the funda
mental solvent
Losing sight of tho unity of truth
society saviours aimto accomplish
aCCOmlJlsh
tho salvation of society from poverty
and its attendant misery by povery
and one siderl remedies just as some
of the converts to the primitive
church substituted the fanciful mys
ticism of their prior
thel 11101 associations for
the simple
morality of the Nazarene
An instance of special Interest and
importance may be found In a new
book on philosophy by prof Euckcn of

pressive indication of the loose con
jectural qualities ot moccrn philoso

CuotaLon
We feel with increasing distress
the wIde interval between the varied
and important work to ne done at the
circumference of life and the complete
emptiness of the
ompluess center When we
take an Inside view of life we find
that a life of mere bustling routine
preponderatec that men struggle and
strugle nne
boost and strive to outdo one another
that unlimited ambition and vanity
nnl
are characteerlstlc or Individuals that
they are always running to and Ire
and pressing forward or feverishly
exerting all their powers But
throughout It all we come upon noth
ing that gives any real value to life
and nothing spiritually elevating1
elovatng
Hence wo do not find any meaning or
value In life but in the end a single
huge show in which culture is re
duecod to a
burlesque Any ono who
thinks it all over and reflects
the difference between the enormous upon
labor that hag been expended and tho
accompanying gain to the essentials
of life must either be csentas
plete negation and despair or must
seek new
ways of
guaranteeing
a
value to life and liberating man from
the sway of the pettily human But
this will force
w1 mou to resume the
quest for inner connections
the Prof Eucken thus clearly describes
mental attitude ° c many thinkers
towards the existing Babel
life xlslng of human
and Its
grave problems

were there s many divergent views

Intelligent and honest criticism 1 How
many touch the radical cause or causes
of the serious social wrongs that oust
be righted beforo humanity can live
a rational human life
Prof Eucken is Intensely earnest In
his desire to solve tho problems ol
the day but he too Is looking beyond
the mallerof fact In life to certain
or rather uncertain inner connec
tions for the satisfaction his anx
iety In this he IB but in line with
the trend of psychological thought
that marks much of the literature of
our time
tmo
Thinker and worker alike seem daz
ed by the mad rush for wealth on tho
one hand und tho persistent poverty
on the other That minds prone to
abstract thinking should seek relief
I for these social evils in theories more
I or less abstract based more or less
upon reason is not to wondered at
1 Much of lie philosophic thought of
I the past has been simply an exhibi
tIon of Intellectual dexterity In hand
11InS abstractions that have been of
i little or no value to human progress
j But the problems which now press for
I recognition ant solution arise out of
I the actual everyday experience ot I
mankind Our Impressions of them do
I not come from abstract mental pro
cesses however ingenious they might
possibly be but from experiences that
admil of no lcniaI
In the impressive language of the
author of Progress and Poverty
This association of poverty with
progress is the great enigma of our
time I is the central tact from
which spring industrial social and
political difficulties that perplex the
world and with which statesmanship
and philanthropy and education grap
pie in alnFrom i come the clouds
that overhang the future of the most
progressive and selfreliant nations
I is the riddle which the Sphinx of
Fate puts to our civilization and which
not to answer Is to be destroyed So
long as all the increased wealth which
modern progress brings goes but to
build up great fortunes to increase
luxury and make sharper the contrast
between the House of Have and the
House of Want progress is not real
and cannot be permanent The tower
leans from Its foundations and every
new story but hastens the final catas
trophe To educate men who must be
condemned poverty is but to make
them restive to base on a state of
most glaring inequality political In
stitutions under which men are the
oretically equal is to stand a pyramid
mid on its apex
I In these wretched conditions earn
est thinkers grow sick of all mater
ial things and look for help beyond
Some are even coming to doubt the
power of reason to understand and
solve our social difficulties One writ
er considerable note goes so tarn
to sneer at logic as something that
could bosafely dispensed with in our
inquiries after truth This is but the
reaction from the disappointment that
has come to us from material pro
gress with Its common experiences
of social confusion and disorder From
I this factlife men have turned wearily I
to the vague mysterious and un I
l known But if ever poverty Is to be
I f abolished It must be by matter of fact
mean
I Why should we look up to the clouds
of speculation and theory for that
I which lies beneath our feet Is not
I the earth the source of all material
I wealth Where else then should the
I poor go for satisfaction of their needs
J they cannot get there that which
I will relieve their poverty It Is not be
I cause the wealth Is not there Nature
Is ever waiting at the call of labor to
bless mankind with more than enough
to satisfy 1 their wants
Why then are many out of work and
why do some starve Here is the vital
question of philosophers philanthro
pists and reformers What hinders
I millions of needy men and women
I from satisfying their needs I Js a
plain
straightforward question and
I I would seem as though its true an
swer should suggest an obvious
rem
edy
edyThose
Those millions are not willingly idle
I Tho lazy nre tho exception and not
the rule J then the earth is the
source of nil wealth and men are will
ing to avail themselves of her bounty
by hoijest labor why should poverty
keep pace with our growing civiliza
lon There can be but one answer
I they arc prevented from using natur
i I nl opportunities
I Who or what prevents them I There
Is but ono answer to that question
monopoly prevents them by arbitrar
ily appropriating those opportunities
and operating them exclusively for the
I benefit of the
beneft monopolist or not
monofoJst opcr
OIIr
atlug them
adequately
atug or at all
i H Is plain then that in the land and
in the land only lies the primary so
l lutjon of all social problems Deep
ly Imbedded in this is the living root
lvlng root
I of the great Upas tree of monopoly
that overshadows and poisons our so
I cial Jle and If we would destroy this
dreadful thing we must cease clipping
off JU outer branches and strike at
the root
With few exceptions philosophers
and philanthropTsts ts have not even at
tempted to strike at this root They
root
have been looking up instead of down
i for the solution that they crush be
I neath their feet daily They liave
ever been and still are deaf to tho
call of the laudthe call to those who
are weary and heavy laden
the call
I to rest rest for the weary little cal
chi
dren
in our factories rest for tho hag
gard and hopeless victims of the sweat
shop rest for the thousands who tramp
the streets In tho vaiu search for an
opportunity to earn a bit of bread for
I yule and children rest for millions of
industrial slaves who toil hopelessly
on early and late from years end to
years end for a bare living while
the monopolist whose whie
monopolst privileges bring
prJvleges
them t this misery lives in 1uxiir r
and ease
anc
If our popular philanthropists and
benefactors could but open their ears
to this call of the land
cal we should hear
no of
more soup kitchens nor charity
organizations Even Dr chnrly
I cher would find it unnecessary IJet
teach the poor how to gnaw their
way out of poverty and all other well I
meant plans to mitigate the priva I
tions of tho
oor
lons poor would themselves
have to go abegging
But will this call tlnd many roapon
< J <
L i
Blve hearers or will It be aa with that
of tho Nazarene who had to say in
sorrow Many are called but few are
chosen Must wo continue to repeat
with he
the Impressive phrase which 10
often I not invariably supplemented
his discourse Ho that hath cars to
hear let him hear
Other calls besides that of the land
distract tile hiinds or men Its gen
tle pleading Is drowned in the Insane
clamor of the stock market In the
loud clangor of the trumpet and drum
of militarism in tho unreasoning tu
mult of pojltlcs in the rattle and clash
of machinery when the dazed and
tired brain lags and droops under the
long weary hours of toll
For many other reasons the truth
about the land falls upon deaf ears
Only in cars already attuned to this
simple tone may It find a ready re
sponse I was thus with the teach
ing of the Nazarene Only In the
good groundthat Is the good and
honest hearldhl the seed of truth
take root and fructify Where per
sonal gain is the supremo object this
call will have no charm for however
Just the truth may seem present con
ditions make its realization appear
remote Where a bare living Is all
that possessed or In prospect the
fear that to go further would be to
faro worso would probably stifle dis
content and the desire for better con
ditions
But there are among this classOf
toilers some honest and earnest souls
to whom the appeal or justice will al
ways be irresistibly sWeet They will
listen to the good news and then car
ry it as evangelists of liberty to oth
er honest and good hearts ready to re
ceive It and work for I
I remains but to note the extreme
simplicity or the method by which the
land now the instrument mainly
used by monopoly to rob nnd enslave
mankind may be freed from this un
natural control and made the natural
means for mans deliverance from
poverty and Its attendant evils
AU social disorder comes from tho
violation of Natures beneficent laws
To ensure social wellbeing wo must
Cease to do evil and learn to do well
This Is just as applicable to com
munities as to individuals and the
assembling of men and women into
groups or communities carries with it
obligations which cannot be neglect
ed or violated with safety to the per
sonal liberty or the social wellbeing
of the whole
Consider for a moment
The necessities of communal life
begin with its foundation and keep
pace with its growth Roads water
lighting and all other requisites of
village town or city must bo pro
vided for the comfort and safety
the inhabitants This cannot bo done
without expense and how may this
t
be met with the least Inconvenience
to all concerned This is the crucial
question on which hangs the present
and future wellbeing of these peo
ple
pieIs
Is there any provision made by Na
ture for that contingency 1 Let us
see From the very beginning of this
communal institution two striking
facts run together in parallel lines
namely increase of population and
increase of land values All intelli
gent sociologists admit this Even
sociologst
Vngrqw Carnegie monopolist as ie
Is admits this Taking It for granted
arc we not justified In claiming that
this constantly growing land value
which augments naturally from the
Increase of population Is Natures
provision for the expenses entailed by
social organization
That the returns from this increase
would be amply sufficient to cover all
reasonable expense Is demonstrated
plainly by the rapid and enormous rise
I n the land values of tho best loca
tons in any city Single taxers tyave
urnlshed phenomenal Instances of
this fact In New York and other
large cities over and over again and
It Is not necessary to repeat them
here So overwhelmingly abundant is
this provision for municipal needs
that nothing short of inexcusable ex
ravagance or wholesale robbery by a I
corrupt city government could pos
sibly render it Insufficient
With this law In force the taxing of
any of the products of labor would be
unnecessary This exemption In Itself
would be a large step towards Indus
trIal freedom The laborer would re
tain all he produced the assessment
of all land at Its true value would open
ip natural opportunities to labor by
making it unprofitable to hold land
out of use Speculation in laud would
die a natural death and tho world
would thus be delivered from Its I
greatest obstacle to material progress
Industry on all hands would be stlm
ilated as never before and under the
reign of justice spiritual advance
ment would become possible And
the fear of want being removed the
feverish desire for excessive wealth
would decline Poverty and Us evils
including charity would cORe for
there would need be none who could
not realize Agurs prayer Give me
neither poverty nor riches teed me
with food convenient for me
But none of this can be brought 1
about by futile attempts to divorce
fie material from the spiritual The
I
highest ethical ideas animate this
land movement Its inspiring princi
ple is justice Its ultimate object the
complete freedom of the human race
Viewed even from Prof Euckens
moral standpoint the spirituality in
this movement must be obvious
The prevailing tendency to push to
extremes analysis and differentiation
In the consideration of all subject ma
In the end reduce the various constit
uent Ideas to a mojilstic basis I is
difficult event at this
dl1cul stage of psy
chological thought to mark a dividing
dividing
line between the material and the
spiritual
More than half a century ago Mary
Somervllle wrote her splendid work
The Connection of the PhysicaJ Sci
ences In which she arranged aud
unified science as then known With
the skill of an inspired artist she
blended the socalled branches of sci
entific knowledge so that the old di
riding lines were lost in a wonderful
picture of nature as a stupendous unit
a coherent and Indivisible whole In
which the constituent elements acted
and reacted upon each other In the
evolution of phenomena Could this
unifying plan bo adapted to the vari
ous problems which arise out of the
relation of human beings to tho uni
verse and each other the task of the
truth seeker might ho much easier
ileasanter and more successful than
it has been under tho control and di
rection of an antiquated scholasticism
But matter what
no maloI changes may
evolve In the realm of thought tho
eternal spirit of justice as expressed
in the golden rule
rle Whatsoever
ye
would that men should do to you do
ye een so to them will continue In
Its sublime simplicity to be the only
way to human progress and happiness
This IB the spirit that animates the
movemen for free land I makes It
tho hope lof the world for only with
free access to natural opportunities
opportimiles
in land can there be free men

GOOD TEMPLARS LODGE
An Interesting Paper to Be Read at a
Future Meeting of the Local
Lodge
The Good Templars Lodge is not
only found in this little town where
it is so much needed but it extends
over tho whole world and our larg
est membership and lodges are found
over the ocean On the British Isles
there are 2632 lodges and IUi77
members anc
In Europe there are 1016 lodges
and 217099 members In the U S
of America there arc 1221 lodges and
41297 members There are also lodges
In Australia New Zealand Africa I
Ceylon Turks Islands and others I
mSt might mention but time will not per
mStWe
We have a record now of 8924 sub
ordinate lodges with a membership ot
419749 The juvenile reports 3487
temples 586 with a membership of 23D
Some of our brightest and wittiest
members are those across the water
Ope of our members who attended the
convention held at Washington re
marked on the enthusiasm these for I
eign members manifested and during
the convention formed themselves in
groups and held temperance meetings
on the street corners to crowds oC
people who would never hear any
thing about the Good Templars Lodge
in any other way Never perhaps dur
ing the whole history of the Temper
ance movement has the outlook
throughout the world been so bright
and satisfactory as it is today And
as W < have a lodge In Ogdon let us
not forget that we have something to
do and that our help and yours Is
needed in bringing about temperance
reforms I
rhree years ago on the eighth toy
of May this lodge was organized in
the Baptist church Twentyone sign
ed the constitution Rev Frank Shaw
was chosen Chief Templar and held
the chair until October 31 1906 when
0 A Smurthwaite was elected chief
templar and who is holding that pO I
sition at the present time Many
changes having taken place since the
lodge was at first organized During
the warm summer months our mem
bership has decreased but each year
we manage to pick up a gain oven If
it is a little hard on tho few faithful
ones At present we have about six
ty good members and others whom we
arc hoping to Ifilng back for there
are many who are Good Tenplars at I
heart and we feel sure they cannot
stay away long During the last two I
months a contesthas been on for the
purpose of gaining new members and
I
to help strengthen and uplift thoso
who have bei faithful two captains
were chosen Miss Rhoda Prothoro and
Miss LydIa McKinnon About lwenty
new members have been taken in be
sides several old ones brought back
At each weekr meeting a short pro
gram has been relfdered for the good
of the order whlc4 has been very in
teresting as well as Instructive Two
entertainments have been held and
the members and their friends enjoy
ed them very much Arrangements
vill soon begin for a banquet to n
had some time in June when our Na
tional Grand Chief Templar Senator
Cottrell of the State of Washington
intends to honor ns with a visit
Friend all of you who have the tem
L r r r r
perauce work at heart Is there a
need of tho Good Templars Lodge In
Ogden NOl and think for just a mo
ment Do you know what this order
is doing I you know can you an
swer otherwise than yes a great
need For the finished work of
strong drink Is an open pago The
milliner and dressmaker with pride
hang up their finished work Pro
gress in other lines of business dis
plays Its goods and advertise them to
draw custom and all it represents
I for value received But who ever
saw 1 rumseller ever hang up In his
windows his finished work or ever
placard the same with for value re
ceived But the day of toleration when
drinking and selling strong drink was
not considered so bad is past pro
gress has revealed the business of
drunkard making In its true light and
all men everywhere know In this day
Its very fibre and the business if not
protected under a detestable license
system would be an outlaw and die an
early death Then a Good Templars
Order Is needed not only to rescue
the fallen but to train those who
have the opportunity of righting this
wrong at the ballot box in the right
direction Then there are many chil
dren growing up in our midst who
need to have the awfulness of the
drink curse instilled in their minds
that they may always fight this evil
and stand for temperance all their
lives How many young men right
here and roundabout us have been
drugged out of respectability out ot
purity and out of character and into
darkness by this Infernal stuff called
strong drink Do you not see the
I
work to be dope In spite of all the
reformation we are yet terribly curs
ed The cries of the suffering reach
unto heaven The crime of the na
tion calls forth the wrath of an of
fended God Tho wail of despair rises
from the pit of torment as every five
minutes a new victrim of the scourge
goes down Into the drunkards hell
While good men are asleep touching
this great question the onemy keeps
sowing tho tares The rumbling or
Gods chariot wheels are hoard in the
distance The Iniquity of the saloon
traffic Is full Armies of children with
banners legions of women with pray
ers and labors and an ever Increas
ing body of men with Prohibition bal
lots In their hands unite In the mighty
watchword Tho saloon must go
What Is worth doing at all is worth
doing well and what Is worth doing
well is worth doing at once so that
you may have an early start to do
something better The temperance
cause needs the influence heVp and
support of the Christian people In
fact the Christian people should go
ahead in the fight The great God
yearns to save this world and He will
do it just as Eon as His church will
lend its cooperation If the murder
ous business Is ever to bo outlawe
and pulverized the Christian vote
must elect the men who will enact
the laws and see that they are en
forced Good men will not always be
blinded to these things as they seem
to be now The time Is coming when
our better class of people will awake
out of this moral sleep and then the
curse will go It is time now to
awake The night Is far spent and
the day Is at hand Let UR there
for cast off the work of darkness Wo
Invite you to share in our labors that
you may afterward share in our victories

A FIG UPON THE THISTLE
To look for truth In the words of an
Insurance official is to look for figs
on a thistle and yet a fig has actual
ly blossomed on those arid stalks
The statement made by John K Gore
President of the Actuaries Associa
tion of America that human life would
soon span 150 years is no vulgar hope
fathered by tho wish for long pre
miums but a deep scientific possibil
ity
The recent researches of Metchnl
koff into the causesand prevention of
old age the rapid growth of prevent
ive medicine the speedily swelling
volume of hygienic knowledge all
point to the gradual lengthening of
human life perhaps beyond the 150
year limit conjectured by Gore
And yet there are obstacles
In 1CG5 the Dutch painter Vader
Cats gave to the world his Allegory
of Life An apple tree perilously over
hangs a flaming pit Precariously
clinging thereto and menaced by tho
firedarting drago of the abyss while
all around him on the bank hiss ven
omous snakes hangs man straining
to pluck the fruit of life Glaring
hungrily at him crouches a giant wolf
between whose paws lies the scraped
clean skull of a previous victim And
to put the supreme touch to the haz
ards of tho Illstarred human two rats
are busily knawing away the trunk
which alone supports him above tho
raring tames which threaten and
the dragon which reaches for him

Two hundred and fifty years have
passed away since Vader Cats thus
conceived the state of man but the

THE UNSKILLED AND UNEM
PLOYED
The classic ground for craft Union
ism Is Great Britain True enough the
more fertile sociolOgic soil of the Unit
ed States has enabled the plant of
British craft Unionism to grow hero
into rankest luxuriousness To that
extent it is best studied In America
At the same time lie place of its
Into
birth offers exceptional insight
a type It isto Great Britain that
one must go In order to become clear F
ly aware of that Achilles heel that
fatally weak spot of craft Unionism
which consists in its unavoidable dis
location of the working class by plac I
ing the Labor Movement upon false
foundation through keeping of Increas
Ing numbers of workers outside of the
pale of Unionism Not the least start
ling feature of the new budget pro
posed by Mr LlojdGcorc is the light
one of its provisions throws upon
this very subject
The craft Unions of Great Britain
have been clamoring for Slate Insur
ance against unemployment Mr
LloydGeorge states that the governments
ments scheme while Including Trade
Unionists would Extend its advan
tages to the larger circle of unskilled I
laborers Which means
First that the Trades or craft
Unions do not embrace the unskilled
workers
Secondly that the Trades or craft
unions do not look for the protection
of the unskilled workers
Summed up into one conclusion jt
means that craft Unionism is a carica
ture of middle classlsm It is n would
be jobTrst affair It ignores and ex
cludes the bulk and ever growing
bulk of the proletariat In short it
Is no part of the labor movement
proper

that even before the time of Hippo

the dental forceps of antiquity must
have been made of Iron or steel al

has hitherto been overlooked in which
It Is mentioned a n familiar fact that
dental forceps wore made of Iron In

WENT DELIBERATELY TO DEATH

Circumstances of Case All Point to
Suicide of Elephant
An Agra India correspondent
sends a remarkable story concerning
what Is declared to be the deliberate
suicide of an elephant
The great annual mela or fair at
Batesar In the northwest provinces Is
held on the bank of the Jumna which
Is there crossed by a bridge of bat
At the side of tho river opposite the
fair there is a slope down which the
elephants bringing visitors to tho
bridge slide into the river and swim
across A young elephant making tho
trip for tho first time trumpeted an
grily when his trappings were stripped
from him preparatory t his swim
but seeing other elephants crossing
the stream ahead of him he plunged
In and followed
When he reached the opposite
bank however he swerved
swered around
and swam back again Tho mahout
sought to force him around again
but without result and when within a
yard or two of the bank the elephant
after trumpeting again plunged down
into tho river Just In the nick of
time the mahout was rescued by
means of a long bamboo but the ele
phant was drowned to all appearance
by his own deliberate act
BREAKING BAD NEWS GENTLY
Matter of Relative Values As Under
stood In Holstein
In the province of Holstein says a
traveler who spends a good deal of his
time abroad where of course noth
ing Is more important than the breed
ing of superior cattle the country peo
ple arc not only very thrifty but ex
ceedingly fond of their cows as may
be gathered from a characteristic story
current there
I appears that one farmer was
walking sadly down the road one day
when the village pastor met him
114Why so downcast friend asked
the pastor
I have a sad errand pastor re
plied the farmer Farmer Ilenriks
cow is dead In my posture and I am
on my way to tell him
1 A hard task Indeed
J
I You may well say so pastor but
I shall break It t him gently
I And how will you do that
I Oh I shall tell him first that it is
his father who is dead and then hav
ing opened the way for sadder news
Btlll I shall toll him that It IB not his
father Weekly but the cowl Harpers
To Save the Birds
The statisticians who foot up tho
loss to the country resulting from tho
killing of insectdestroying birds and
from our further neglect t Intelli
gently protect and foster those winged
scavengers of the air put the gross
sum at 800000000 per year We do
not know upon what facts or what
basis of computation this enormous
total is reached but if it is onetenth
part true it is a startling showing Tho
proposition of the federal government
to set aside bird reservations and
resorvatons aul
breeding grounds where our feathered
friends might be protected In life lib
erty and the pursuit of happiness
seems to rest upon sound economical
grounds It Is a measure of safety for
ourselves as well as for the birds
