>gK)DERN CAPTAIN KIDDS
A typical little game in high finance has been going on in connection
with an electric railroad between Chicago and Milwaukee.
For years the steam roads have fought the plan to haul people between
these cities by electricity at cut rates. At last, the electric line wil forced
into a receivership, followed by a reorganization committee, at the head of
which is Chicago's most powerful banker. The reorganization bought in the
property for $6,700,000, paying a rival interest a bonus of $:>OO,OOO not to
kite the bidding; and then they set forth to recapitalise so as to put forth
securities amounting to $i)(),5()6,(MK) —or four to one!
And this torrent of water, representing not a penny of real investment,
might have got by, as in so many other instances such raids on the public
have got by, had not the federal bench in Chicago had on it one vigilant,
people's judge—Kensaw Mountain Landis. lie put his foot down flat, as in
the $2.(),(KM),()()() Stanford Oil fine; but of course the inflaters are appealing.
In the same city pretty much the same crowd is trying to get $40,000,
--000 of water injected into a merger of elevated and surface lines, to become
for 40 years an excuse for surtaxing the people.
Were you to steal one ride on one of these pirated railroads and get
caught, the law is rigged so as to rush you to jail. What are we to do with
our Reynoldses and Morgans?
The house ways and means committee in its hearings of protests against
tariff reduction did a real good thing, something which we believe is rather
novel in tariff Inquiries.
It heard the wail of the president of the National Cilue association and
then asked him what his profits are. There's much confusion as to the actual
results of the tariff and there is much lying about it. But if you can ascer
tain what the profits are under the existing schedules you can come pretty
near to sizing up the monopolistic effects of the protection accorded.
Of course, Mr. (Hue, president, whined about the question being imper
tinent inquiry into his private affairs and none of the committee's business,
but prevention of the piling up of enormous private fortunes through privi
lege of plucking consumers is the whole country's business, and we are go
ing to inquire into every man's private affairs through process of the in
come tax. ,
There has been too much tenderness toward private affairs and the pri
vate affairs which are detrimental to the public good must be regulated.
Let the ways and means committee put that question about private
profits to every fellow who conies before it to object to reductions in behalf
of the consumers from whom profits are wrung.
There is another side to the child labor problem than the one in Governor
Sulzer's mind when he told the New York solons: "No commerce that de
pends upon child labor for its success has a right to exist."
Abolishing child labor leaves the necessary job only half done.
There were families at Lawrence, there were families in the damnable
jjNew York canneries which Mary Boyle O'Reilly exposed, all through our
"sweated industries there are families by thousands, which could not exist, let
alone live, on the wages which the parents receive, working however indus
triously. The child is in the mill in order that food may be in the home.
Childhood must be saved. So, also, must manhood. Jf an industry can
not be organized to pay to its grown-ups a wage sufficient to enable them to
found wholesome homes and rear children who have a fair chance, without
sacrificing dividends, then we must brace ourselves to see the dividends van
ish until a more efficient management can be found. For, as Bulser says:
"No industry has a right to rob the state of that which constitutes its
'Rah for Assemblyman Inman of
the California legislature! Remits his
mileage to the state and calls on his
fellow-members to do likewise. Whis
per! Inman's mileage is 20 cents.

BOSS OF BRITISH NAVY DOES 810 THINGS
WITH 12 YEAR OLD ENTHUSIASM
BY William O. Shepherd. I
LONDON, Jan. 17.—There are
few Englishmen whose futures
loom go big, just at present, as
He's only 38 years old. Less
than two years ago he took tne
admiralty job and today he's one
of the world's navy experts.
He's half American, for his
mother, Lady Cornwallls West,
was Jennie Jerome of New York.
When he became war corre
spondent after leaving school his
first job was the Spanish-Ameri
can war. Most of the corre
spondents went with the Ameri
can troops, but not Winston; he
did the odd thing, as usual, and
went with the Spaniards. He
got a Spanish medal tor bravery
and a lot of news that the writ
ers on the American side couldn't
While the other correspond
ents had also bad exciting times,
they came home and wenl back
to routine newspaper work, but
Winston started a lecture tour
on "My Desperate Experiences in
War." It went, too. He even
journeyed over to the United
States to tell the folks there
Then he made up his mind It
was time to go to parliament.
The matter of being too young
had spoiled the whole first twen
ty years of his life, but at last he
convinced the neighbors that lie
was old enough to be an M. F.
aud they sent him.
He was 30 years old then, he
made the dignified old fellows
afraid of him; he called one ot
them a "miserable old man,"
and altogether he pestered them
so aud made so much fun of
their belief that things ought to
be done the way they were done
a century ago that they gradu
ally let him alone.
Every time he took up a meas
ure he acted as if he thought it
was the biggest and most vftal
thing that had ever confronted
He was made home secretary;
that gave him charge of the po
lice aud the right to call out
troops when necessary.
Now he has charge of the
navy. He's making a big Job out
of it. He thinks that Germany
is bound to pitch into Kngland
some day, and he intimates It in
his speeches. He wants parlia-1
