DR BARNES
ADVOCATES SOCIALISM AND AN
ARCHY
As man relaxes his faith In forco
ho has more faith In persuasion lIre
cept and example So long as wo de
pend on prohibition by coercion to re
strain men from evil wo caro less
and depend less upon our own exam
plo to lead tho feeble minded aright
Men will go Into a saloon to drink reo 1
gardless of the example he sets to the
young for he says we have a law
against minors going Into such pla
In the absence of coercion of man
made laws mutual cooperation or
voluntaryism would as surely result
as that day follows night Man Is a
social being and as Paine said Ule
mutual dependence and reciprocal In
terst man has In man would create a
great chain of connection to hold us
togetherSocialism true socialism must be
unrestrained There can be no such
thing as a social state In tho true
meaning of the term Socialism must
be voluntary State Socialism Is what
Spencer calls the coming slavery
Our government now Is stato Socialis
tic Take our army and navy our
elemosyo nary Institutions our llarls
our schools our fire and water depart
ments our streets roads bridges etc
and observo how carelessly and ex
pensively they are managed
The abolition of the State would
not abolish society As Paine sas
In his Common Sense Same writ
ers have so confounded society with
government as to leave little or no
I distinction between them whereas
they are not only different but have
different origins Society Is produced
by our wants and government by our
wickedness The one encourages In
tercourse the other creates dlstlnc
tlons Government like dress Is the
badge of lost Innocence
The love of approbation or distinc
tion prompts most of our acts Ien
do not work for bread and clothing
alone they work for distinction for
the approbation of their fellows Few
men can distinguish themsoves as
poets philosophers orators or musi
cians but since riches distinguishes
a man more than anything else t
It does not take so great a mind to
get rich more men seek riches Dut
true greatness does not consist of
riches except with Ignorant slaves
The Southern slave whose master
owned a hundred negroes felt proud
of his masters greatness and tantaliz
ed other negroes whose masters o
ed but ten just as poor white slaves
are proud of a millionaire in their
neighborhood It Is a hopeful sign
however to see Hugo mourned by
more people than was Napoleon and
Altgcld more than Pullman and
Greely more than Vanderbilt As lhe
world Is enlightened true greatness
IJs appreciated The greatest good
A t ever done In tho world was done not
11rof
N 1r distinction Did Franklin Morse Ed
I ison or Tesla experiment and bring
forth their great discoveries for
fj money Their love of money was no
1 inducement compared with their ho
Of science So with all discoveries In
V the sciences and Inventors of machin
ery Neither does government assist
In discoveries to any great extent It
s questionable whether the abolition
of patent laws would check Inventions
or discoveries in the sciences
Tho love of approbation of sup
superI
lors is greater among the lower than
the superior classes Even a pet mono
key will get jealous if its master be
stows his affections on his children
Many lower animals may bo taught
clover tricks In Imitation of man l1r
kind treatment through their love of
approbation The worst boys In our
village will dress as conventionally as
their purse will bear to appear well
to their superiors And the worRt
boys I konw will If approached lelnd
ly do mo a favor when requested aud
l refuse pay for It All men have a
good side to them which alone would
bo appealed to In a free society co
operative voluntaryism It Is hopefi
i to see the many efforts at cooper
tlon Independent of government The I
Labor Exchange a society absolut
ly independent of nil government anti
legal tender money for Instance The
i many voluntary societies benevolei
and pecuniary independent of fore
is a good sign
In a mutual society where govern
ment and Its hoards of non prod6cin
officers and soldiers are turned Into
i producers and where nearly half thl
labor now expended would be useless
two hours of labor from each wool
produce moro useful wealth each day
than Is now produced Then person
could choose their vocation and their
labor would be a recreation and man
would work many hours through love
of the vocation Then it would be con
ventional to work and no one could
bravo the odium of society by reCus1
ing to be productive of good Now
the supposed best people do not worh
and those who do are overworked till
It becomes irksome and to be shunned
as disgraceful
In a free society who would volun
teer to make whiskey and weapons of
warfare They are now made and
sold for money I have talked will
many saloon keepers and they all tell
mo that they lead a dogs life and
If there were not more money in It
than in anything else they would not
follow It
In free society who would volun
teer to build a million dollar residence
for one man to live in Would not
he and his retinue of servants bo
turned Into productive vocations
To Illustrate the waste and inefll
1To of our present competitive and
wasteful ways of work in Boston
there are on one street twenty piano
stores and each store sells a differ
ent piano having an excellence that
no other has One of tho dealers pays
GO000 a year for clerk hire and ad
I vertising Now in a mutual society
> one raanufnctury would make one
piano and ono store would distribute l
I
l
j1t1 if I
pianos having in each all tho e anei
lences of all others now on tho mur
ket
ketI got out of the post office one day
twentyfive packages of mall and
eighteen wero pure advertisements
and the other sewn were ouethlrd
advertisements Over ono half the
printing now done would be useless In
a cooperative society So with many
other things the reader can thlnl of
In a mutual society tao preacher
and the lecturer would have all tho
time they have now to prepare their
speeches after two hours recreation
In some productive vocation and they
would speak for the love of truth and
dare to tell tho truth as they cannot
do today and hold their jobs Tbey
could use plain Intelligible language
and call a spade a spade and not use
language to conceal thought as now
Men could then be honest I llCard 11
travelling man say he could not be
absolutely frank and honest and do
business Our present society breeds
crime as does government Oovern
ment sets the example of several of
the most heinous crimes It murllcrs
by wholesale In war and prlvatelj by
electrocution and strangulation It
robs me to pay for wars chaplains
and officers against my will It forges
chlldrens names to bonds to be 1mld
in their old days It suppresses the
truth about affairs to suppress the
freedom of speech and tho press
Some of the most Important truths
are debarred from publication
There can bo but one standard of
right What Is wrong for me to do
Is wrong for many to do It Is just
as wrong for me to murder a mar as
It Is for the State to do it with Its
sheriff or with its militia or for the
nation to murder In war and no more
wrong It is just as wrong for the
State to rob me by taxing me as for
me to rob an individual or a banlt
Numbers or might do not make an act
rightAs society Is now constituted
wrong In some cases is right Indus
try and economy aro abstractly right
But he who produces least and con
sumes most Is the greatest benefactor
IE he pay money for what he
consumes Ho gives poor men to
whom labor Is a boon work for wages
who would not get labor If all men
were economical and Industrious It
is a deplorable fact that such dlsas
firs as the Chicago fire and the Oal
Weston flood benefited more peOple
han it Injured by giving themworl
it wages It is lamentable that the
destruction of property the very
thing all men want benefits the
masses As society is restrained by
overnment If every one was econom
nal to the point of parsimony manu
acturlng would decline and society
would retrograde to barbarism I
But In a free society of mutualism I
the person who produced most i ll1d I
consumed least would be tho greatest
benefactor to society for what he pro
duced and saved would be for all
Then It would be to the Interest of
very ono to produce and conserve
wealth There would be no incendl

Many politicians of our times are
In the habit of laying It down as a self
evident proposition that no people
ought to be free till they are fit to
IIse their freedom The maxim Is
orthy of the fool old woman in the
song
0 mother may I go out to swim
0 yes my darling daughter
Just hang your clothes on a hlcltory
limb
nut dont go near the water
If wo are to wait for liberty ti
e become wise and good In slavery
they may Indeed wait forever I
Results are not always commensur
ate with appliances especially of ap
lances of force Wo take a sheet of
copper or tin that Is cockled as we
fell stroke
sar and expect with one
with a hammer on an anvil to smootl t
It out but we see numerous other
rlnkles In unexpected places arise
Tho Prohibitionists think that with
general law against tbe
Gne great
anufacture and sale of intoxicant
we would have a heaven on cart
Dut with all the laws ever made Uley
have only produced other evils unfor
Roen in unexpected places Perjury
stealth litigation and liquor party has
heen the result If the energy and
money expended in getting prohll
tory laws had been expended in edu
cating and persuading people against
the use of intoxicants and govern
ment had kept its hands off from It
thero would be less poverty froi I
IIfJuor than there is now
Spencer lays down a great truth
which Is verified by any observatio
In substanc
In my mind He says
that no evil was ever put down b
force that some other evil or evils
did not arise In unforeseen places to
take Its place I do not believe as
much good as harm over resulte
from coercive force As Franklin said
There never was a good war nor a
had peace All government is war In
Its last analysis
Love and truth are the only Invln
clhlo and eternal principles and pow
erR In the social world
The Idea that free society can be
Inougurated by force is as fallacious
a the Idea that It can be sustained by
force Force cannot preserve free

WHY I AM AN ATHEIST
When it was declared that The
fool has said in his heart there Is
no God the truth was only half told
fo this should have been added And
the fool has also said In his heart
there is a God This latter clause of
tho sentence would have rounded up
the truth of this matter
As a matter of fact It is equally
foollRh for men to dogmatize either
way Tho Theist can no more prove that
there Is a God than tho Atheist can
e that there is none It is all
simply a matter of opinion and noth
Ing more Plausible and implausible
arguments are about equal on both
sides And the fact that neither side

Correspondence and Inquiries are given our prompt attention I
can prove their position nor disprovi I
the position of their opponents seems
sufficient reason that the contest
should cease and that these extrem
Ists should meet on the great middle
ground Agnosticism Is that middle ground
Really It is the only logical posltlor
we can take Upon this ground the
theist and Atheist can compromise
their differences without doing any
real Injury to either It Is not half sc
foolish to say we dont know as It IE
to pretend we know or imagine we
know when wo do not know
The man that says there Is no God
may bo a fool but he is no bigger fool
than the man that says there Is one
I am an Atheist only In tho sense
that I do not believe In the Christian
God the Mohammedan God or any
other God of whom I have ever heard
or read Thoy are all manmade Gods
and therefore have no existence save
In tho minds of their creators and
worshipers Concerning the CMStenco of the real
God that Is to say tho unknown
God I am an Agnostic The evi
dence necessary to provo or disprove
such an existence lies too far beyond
our reach to even think of such a
thing If such a being exists science
ins not yet revealed him nor has
It disproved his existence The great

than an Ignoramus
Of course he knows a great deal
more about Uio phenomena of nature
than the Ignoramus and ho can talk
very learnedly and fluently about her
laws and forces but as all this neith
er proves nor usproves the exist
i ence of a God of what value Is it in
the way of evidence to either theist

or atheist
I But as I view this question It is
of little Importance except In so far
os it relates to the Bible God Of
course all Intelligent Llberarls are
Atheists In the sense that they do not
believe In the existence of any such
God as the Bible reveals
