Washington. Thirty thousand loco
motive onglnecrs on ilfty-two Fatorn
ratlwns gain a partial victory in their
demand' for more wages under the
award announced by tho board of ar
bitration In Its decision, however, the loard
holds that tho public, which had no
voice In the controversy and no choice
but to nbldo by tho decis'on, had moro
at stale than either engineers or rail
roads, and tho report emphasizes the
necessity of plans to safeguard tho
public against the possibility of a fu

"It would bo difficult to exaggerate
tho seriousness of such a e.i'nmPy,"
reads tho report. "It Is safe 'o say
that the large cities of tho lZnK' VOu!d
find tho supply of many articles of
food exhausted within n week. Of so
important a commodity as milk, they
would have no moro than a day's sup
ply. If a strike of the character last
ed only a single week, th suffering
would bo beyond our power of descrip
tion. Tho Interests of tho public so
far exceed those of the parties to a
controversy as to render tho former
paramount. To this paramount Inter
est both the railroad operators and
the employes should submit."
To plnco such a strike beyond tl.o
roalms of probability, the board advo
cates the creation of federal and state
wage comm'ssions. These commls
sions, the hoard suggests, should bo
vested with piratically tho same pow

over quasi rubllc corporations.

TWO MEASURES IN DEMAND
Provision for Income Tax and Direct
Election of Senators a Duty Laid
on Democratic Party.
Democratic triumph should mean
tho prompt success of two popular
measures tho Income-tnx amendment
nnd tho direct election of United
States senators by voters.
Victory for tho Income tax Is almost
won. Tho votes of only two moro
states nro 'needed for ratification. This
Is not a partlsnn political measure
Within four years It has been ndvo
cr.ted In both party platforms In Mas
sachusetts, Rhodo Island and Maine:
In Indiana, Kansas, Wisconsin nnd
Michlgnn; In Utah, Colorado and Cal

this amoudmcnt Is, therefore; yet wo
count Democrats Its safest frionds.
For tho Republicans In Massachusetts,
Utah nnd Rhode Islnnd w;nt back on
their Btnto platform pledges to boat
tho nmondmont, and In Maluo and
elsowhero thoy tried It with less suc
cess. This moasuro should bo ratified
beforo March 4. If In tho coming re
vision of tho tariff thoro should bo
somo sacrifice of revenue It should bo
no longer possible to raise In defense
of robbory tho old plea that It is tho
only way to keep tho government run
ning. Tho nmondmont providing for tho
direct election of senators is but be
ginning Its scrutiny by tho states.
Two of them only havo passed it. It
also should bo promptly ratified, that

Wool, Sonator Cotton, Senator Glass,
Senator Steel, Senator Coal, Sonator
Copper, Senntor Railroad and Senator
These two measures are of tho sort
which will prove that tho truest pro
gresslvism Is Truo Domocracy.
Enforce Anti-Trust Law.
Governor Wilson's prescription of
Imprisonment for tho bends of trusts
Is not vindictive or cruel, or oven ex
cessive. Tho anti-trust law wns en
acted twenty-two years ago; It has
been onforced ovor nnd over again.
By this tlmo all the trust magnates
must understand whnt tho settled pol
icy of tho country Is with regard to
all these industrial aggregations that
aro suppressing competition Just so
far as they aro able to. Now It Is time
they took notice of this and made
their business methods conform to tho
dellbernto and matured opinion of the
Wilson a Free Man.
Wilson will go Into tho White Houso
untrnmmoled by promises. Not only
is It understood thnt he has mado no
promises to tho politicians, but It Is
admitted genorally that ho has mado
no promises to tho Amorlcan peoplo.
