Prophecy Beine Fulfilled.
Ia June, 1873. accordng to the
Philadelphia (North American, Ed
ward J. Ryan, chief justice of the su
preme court of Wisconsin, gave this
prophetic warning to the graduating
class of the University of Wisconsin:
"There is looming up a new and
dark power. I can not dwell upon
the signs and shocking omens of its
advent. The accumulation of indi
vidual wealth seems to be greater
? than it ever has been "since the down
fail of the Roman empire. The en
terprises of the co'.ntry are aggre
gating vast corporate combinations
of unexampled capital, boldly march
ing, not for econmic conquests only,
but for political power. We see
their colors, we hear their trumpets,
we distinguish the sound of prepara
tion in their camps.
For the first tim'j in our politics,
money is taking the field as an or
ganized power. It is unscrupulous,
arrogant and overbearing. Already
here at home, one great corporation
has trifled with the soverign power
and insulted the state. There is
grave fear that it and its great rival
have confederated to make partition
of the state and share it as spoils.
?"Wealth has it*, rights. Indus
trious wealth has its honors. This it
is rho duty of the law to assert and
protect, though wealth has great
power of self-protection and influence
beyond the limits of integrity. Biut
money as a political influence is es
sentially corrupt; It Is one of the
most dangerous to free institutions;
by far the most dangerous to the
free and just administration of the
law. It is entitle'' to fear if not to
"The question will arise, and arise
In ycur day, though perhaps not fully
in mine; Which shall rule, wealth or
man; which shall iead, money or in
tellect; who shall fill public station,
educated and patriotic freemen or the
feudal serfs of corporate capital?"
The prophecy of Judge Ryan is
being rapidiy fulfilled almost to the
letter. He certai ly knew what he
was talking about when he made it
It took the people a long time to
catch on, but we believe they have
their eyes open at last, and it begins
to look as if the thieving trusts will
be called to account.

Recall or Judges.
In an address before the Bar Asso
ciation of Minnesota, following sev
eral speeches denouncing the threat
ened destruction of the independence
cf the judiciary, Mr. James Mana
han, a Minneapolis lawyer, said:
"It is urged that the recall of 'the
judges would subject the judiciary to
the clamor of the mob. The man
who believes the people are a mob
does not believe In a republican form
of government. He should leave this
country. He -has no place here; his
spirit is treasonable. Respect the
judges, of course, the same as we
respect men in other offices who do
their duty; no more, no less. We
can not respect tlaem if they are ar
rogant ? or tyrannical or despotic.
And if they are not held responsible
they become to a greater or less de
gree arrogant, tyrannical and despot
ic. They are entitled to the respect
earned by the justice and wisdom of
their judgment, and this should be
measured not by them, but by that
soverignt'y that creates them. Let
their work be done in the light of
the power they serve. The more ,
direct and severe the light, the great
er will shine the glory of their work
What Mr. Manahan says is unan
swerable, and hi;j word3 ought to be
posted where all can read them. Re
spect the judges., of course, but "let
their work be done in the light of
the power they ..erve. The more di
rect1 and severe the light, the greater
will shine the glory of their work
well done." A-- Mr. Manahan says
the man who believes that the peo
ple are a mob does not believe in a
republican form of government like
ours. Those men who fear to let
the'people hold the judge responsible
evidently believe that the people are
Must Bo True Blue.
While some .;eople are trying to
read Mr. Bryan out of the Democratic
party, it becomes more apparent ev
ery day that the campaign of IS 12
will be a plain, unmistakable, clear
cut discussion, and decision between
two lines of national policy, involv
ing radical differences upon funda
mental points not alone of national
legislation, but of the attitude and
temperament of the federal execu
tive and federal judiciary as well.
The national conscience, not less
than national intelligence, demand
a thorough change, a reversal as well
as a revision cf the national policy
in many important particulars, says
the Denver News. The Democratic
candid'ate for president next ycfar
must be distinctively democratic. He)
must be not : 'erely non-republican, I
but he must be positively anti-repub
lican. He must stand for the things
that Taft doe" not stand for.
He must represent individually and
personally, without chance of ques
tion or doubt, all the principles and
policies of progressive democracy, as
taught by Mr. Bryan. The success of
1912, now seemingly assured, can
only lie .consumed along the lines
of progressive democracy, which is
true democracy, and with a candidate
who shall be la all essential partic
ulars the apostle and representative
of those progressive principles.
Cost Him Money.
An exchange says "it cost sa coun
try newspaper money every time it j
takes a stand on any question. Al
most any citizeu besides a newspaper
man can do it without injuring his
business. If the editor advocates im
provements the soreheads go after
him and sometimes stop their paper.
11' he opposed improvements the pro
gressive sort get on him and call him
a back number and a knocker. If
he publishes politics the opposition
gets into his hair, and if he does not
he is charged with being afraid to
stand out for his opinion. If he
condemns mail order houses, there,
are some people who ask him to at
tend to his own business, as they
have a right to trade where they
please." This is all true as this pa
per knows from experience. Some
little three for a quarter fellows
think because they take the paper
the editor should consult them be
fore expressing an opinion on any
subject. Such narrow minded peo
ple never worry us. They can take
tbe paper or not as they please, but
we go on hewing to the line and let
the chips fall where they will. ' We
have lost some dollars, but we have
