Tiik difference of sentiment with
which thr railroad managers view
the force ami application of the in
terstate commerce law before arid
after the strike Is remarkable. They
pleml for its protection before, and
defy it power afterward.
Majiciii'9f.tt9 has an "arbitra
tion and conciliation conituisinn,"
run. in ling of three nu-njlxTH. When
a atrike oernrs, it Is the tlnty of the
rotnmiftftion to investigate on the
gmnnd and bj working with the
strikers and employers, attempt to
h.irmoniae their differences to con
ciliate. The commission cannot act
as a heard of arbitration nntil the
men go to work, in other words, the
law d cs not permit the commission
to arbitrate while a etriLc is in pro
gress. Ots. T. J. lltsntiw-ox Has Wen
again U'aten for the republican turn
ination for congress in the new Kiev,
enth district. Beaten once bj his
own partv this jear after having
rendered 20 years of ditinguihed
service in congress, during which
he, more than any other man, secured
the Hennepin canal appropriations,
th death of the nominee gnve him a
chance to try again to succeed him
self at lcat in his party's estimation
ami a far as its influence went. Yes
terday at Strcator, however, he was
again turned down, the republican
convention naming Henry Mayo, of
At Central-Music hall. Chicago,
tomorrow evening. Franklin Mae
Veagh will formally ojn?n his cam
paign tor the United States senator
ship. As the chosen leader of the
Illinois democracy he will announce
the issues upon which the state can
vass Is to be conducted. With Mr.
MacVcagh as their regularly accred
ited leader, the democrats have a de
cided advantage over the republicans
in the present campaign. So far as
the contest for the senatorship is
concerned, the republicans are un
able to present a united front. The
Party is divided into factions, each
Laving its own candidate.
No better reply to'the gibes and
taunt ot the protectionist agents in
congress could be made than this ut
terance of Congressman William I.
Wilson in accepting rcnominatiou
itut all this does not imply dis
satisfaction with our own party as a
whole, or distrust as to its meanings
and intentions. If the closeness of
the rote in one honse of congress
gave opportunity for a few to com
bine ugainst the people and against
all the rest of their party and ol
struct its faithful efforts to redeem
its pledges, the overwhelming mass
of the democrats in the country are
subject to no just criticism. Thev
have kept the faith. They have been
true to their principles. We may
ourselves denounce or bitterly con
demn those that failed ns in this
tight. We are not. therefore, sub
ject t condemnation by our oppon
ents. If we have done less in the
way of relieving the people's
burdens than we had hoped
and promised, they would have
done nothing at all. If we have
anywhere uncovered a trust and
found it too strong for our complete
dislodgment in the first attempt, we
have never failed to find them stur
dily and solidly arrayed for the de
fense. The weapens'with which mo
nopoly has fought ua they have
forged and tempered and supplied.
The intrenchmcnts and fortresses
behind which privilege has shielded
itself from our attack they have
bnildod for it, stone by stone, and
stronghold by stronghold.
This Is something to ' which the
Keeds and McKinleys, etc., cannot
blind the eyes ot the people. If cor
porate monopoly has been found so
strong as to resist a party armed
with the mandate of the people it is
because it ha been built up and in
trenched by the very men who now
presume to sneer at the victims of
its insolent might. It is the protec
tionist! who are to blame for the in
adequacy of the tariff bill, not the
revenue reformers. Mr. Wilson goes
to his constituency with an unequivo
cal certificate that he has done his'
duty cleanly and fearlessly.

CAPITAL AND CONFIDENCE.
An That Is Keeded For tha American Peo
ple to Start I p Again.
Everybody who has money is tired
of getting 1 per cent or no per cent for
it Every business man who has been
lying on his oars is crazy to do some
thing or engage in something he under
stands. Every enterprise which has
been dormant is feeling its way for cap
ital and confidence. Labor is every
where euger for work and employers
still more eager to open their works. It
only requires the normal machinery of
the country to move in a normal way,
for consumption to again make demands
When the history of tha late panic
comes to be written and the troubles in
cident to it, ono of its remarkable fea
tures will be the effect upon railway
traffic, upon e business of 65,000,000
people, of thoso who had to and those,
who had no noed to economize, but did
so in every possiblo way. When ouo
family uses tho old stove with the
cracked lids and pastes paper over tho
broken pane of glass aud does not renew
any of the furniture or crockery, when
they wear last year's clothes and go
from food which might bo luxuries to
food which simply supports life, the eco
nomies are demonstrated which follow
a total or partial loss of income.
Precisely that process has been going
on for two-thirds of a year among 1)0
per cent of onr population. It has made
clear the fact that tiie American people,
who are charged, and probably justly,
with being tlio most extravagant people
in the world, can live as closely as any
body when it becomes necessary. Bnt
the effect upon merchants, middlemen
and carriers in the volumoof their busi
ness and their profits is disastrous be
yond any process which has ever affect
ed the business of the country. Chaun
