I'nited States from the president of
the I Utf Four Uailwav Svstent. vvhieh
is so siiffjfestive, and tlrawn upon lines
so Jeffersonian, as to invite the se
rious attention of intelligent readers
am: to justify more than passing com
ment. Mr. fntralls is a democrat.
Horn, like so many successful Ameri
cans, a farmer's boy, he has merged
the man of affairs enousrh with the
man of hooks to evolve in one ami the
same personality both the thinker
and the actor upon the stafre of real
life. Whatever he says is weighty,
because it spring's from a min.l rich
ly endowed and highly trained, sind
fortified by varied experience.
in this last contribution to the res
ervoir of contemporary thought. Mr.
Ii)alls recoynizes the revulul ionized
elements no le.s than the momentous
problems with which we have to deal.
I'pon the very threshold of the new
century, as he clearly points out. po
litical events ami business condi
tions are crowdintr each other so fast
that we stop and wonder what is to
happen next. New developments, new
metho.ls, new conditions, new obli
gations, are upon us. lo many the
clouds in the hori.on have an anjrrv
look and they fear ft:r the future of
the nation. While optomists. like Mr.
ngalls, may not share their fear-.
they a rree that the national safety
depends upon the irtue ai.d iiitejrritv
of our citizens, and it is just as well
to look tile situation over and make
up our mind.- as to what should be
lone to meet the danyer. ir there be
my. In fact, there is nothing' better
tor an individual or a communitv than
to stop and think. We rush along- in
our mad race, heedless of the future.
l"o manv people the close of the nine
teenth century and the opening; of the
twentieth is not full of promise for
the hig'her ideals of life; it seems to
them that everything' is heinr sacri
ficed to the desire of netting" rich:
that relig'ion. con-cience. truth and
virtue are ;:t a discount, and the
world only 1 1 1 1 1 U 1 who win win
ii the race f piling- up million-. It
- certainly a time for serious
thought. Heretofore we have been a

ur share of the responsibility of the
Thus admirably and truthfully
ketching the situation. Mr. Iniralls
omes down lo particulars, and in the
following treats of the first and great
est of our outlying dangers.
"The political ascendency of one
party by as large a majority as there
publicans have had for some years is
an element of danger. The safest
c million for a republic- is to have two
paities. strong and evenly divided;
then neither side will go very far
wrong for fear of the opposition.
"The great danger as to our for
eign possessions is that, with no colo
nial pidicy we shall drift along until
in a fatal hour we will admit these
diTerent countries and islands as
territories." anil then it is easy to
make them 'states." Then where will
our republic be. when presidents are
elected by votes in Cuba. I'orto Kico.
Hawaii ami the l'hilippines? You may
say that this can never be; that I am
supposing an impossibility, but let me
assure you that the danger is already
"Hawaii has been admitted as a
territory, and if by chance some party
in power should conclude that it
needed an electoral vote, it is very
easy to admit it as a state, and then
your presidential election may be de
cided in Honolulu. Do you dream
that our republic will last under such
a condition as that?
""Our mistake will be in drifting
along without providing safeguards
against the danger I have alluded to.
We should at once provide by consti
tutional provision that no state
could' be admitted to this union unless

it was composed of continuous and
adjoining- territory. This would cut
out Cuba, Porto Kico, llaiwaii and the
Philippines. Then we should create a
system of colonial government or a
protectorate, as you please so that
we may hold our trnd-e and commerce
in the Caribbean sea,' on the Pacific
and in the Orient. For the sake of
extending our trade we cannot trifle
with the life of a republic."
Tile crisis, as Mr. lugalls shows, is
upon us. Our fleets and armies are
in the Orient; we are in possession
of new lands and countries; we stand,
as it were, sponsor for all the re
publics and nations of .N'orl h and
South America. When President
Cleveland took his stand in the Vene
zuela case anil the country supported
him we were committed to certain
duties ami responsibilities in refer
ence to all our neighbors, and we can
not gvt away from them. The Spanish
war and subsequent negotiations
placed-on us the burden of controll
ing" and developing other countries.
In connection with these imminent
and overwhelming international is
sues, lis Mr. Ingalls proceeds to show,
we are confronted with a further se
rious question, which is continually
raised and which must be considered
the struggle between capital and
labor. The organization of the most
immense trusts or corporations ever
known has brought this to the front.
Certainly there are irrave issues to be
settled by us as a people and as a
nation. Are we prepared to assume
an 1 ncse responsioilit ies ami can we
successfully manage them ami still
maintain our republic, still preserve
"a government of the people, for the
people and by the people?"
We quote the following:
"Is there danger in the future from
the great business combinations that
are now beilig inade--from the
trusts? You hear it 011 every street
corner. At every gathering men are
inquiring and discussing it. fls 1 he
struggle ' between capita! and labor
actually commenced. and is the con
flict irrepressible? My observation
in the last twenty-tivc years has been
that labor has steadily won and capi
tal lost in the struggle which al
ways exists more or less. The com
pensation of labor has constantly
risen, the cost of the necessities of
life has decreased. On Ihe other
hand, the earnings of capital have
grow 11 le-s anil less each year, and the
responsibility and trouble of keeping
it employed lias increased. J he rate
of interest in this country is only
about one-half what it was twentv
tive years ago. A citizen who retired
from business then and desired to
live on his income is today in com
paratively poor circumstnr.ccs. In
other words, if he had stood still he
has seen the interest upon his capi
tal cut in two. while his expenses
have at the best stood still.
"Capital has-been able to exist and
increase only when it has 1 ecu active
ly employed, and if it has been active
it has had to employ labor in order to
exist. Our law of equal distribution
of estates and the prevention of en
tails scatters wealth. About the only
large estate in this country today
that I recall, which will not be sepa
rated and divided among heir.- is
Carnegie's, and it looks as though he
might divide that up himself. It is
rarely tjmt large estates last long in
a republic. Children left with large
wealth soon dissipate it. The saving
that it is only three generations from
the millionaire to the clerk in shirt
sleeves is generally true, and it is well
for society and for the nation that it
"lias the danger to labor increased
by the organization of the vast com
binations of today? The trust is no
new danger. It is an aggregation of
capital under a new name. It may
be a greater one. but it is only a
large corporation the outgrowth of
business ami competition. How to
control it is a question.
"I'ublicity and taxation, all agree, is
one way of controlling and keeping
the trusts within the limits. Let the
full light of day be turned on all their
actions, all their statements ami all
their accounts, and provide cither by
a franchise or license tax that they
shall pay their fair share of the bur
dens of the people. Our case is some
what different from that of Kngland
or other countries, and therefore
precedents do not always apply. In
Knglaml. for instance, they have prac
tically free fraih'. and there is noth
ing which the trust wants from par
liament. Here we have a tariff, and
to a certain extent it is used as a pro
tection for the corporations, and the
great da ne'er to our institutions is
that these great aggregations of
wealth may endeavor to control legis
lation and to do things that smaller
bodies could not attempt."
These are pregnant words. Thev
touch the marrow- of the question
treated. Here is another passage
which is. full of wise suggestion.
Again we quote:
"After all this danger must be met,
as all dangers in the republic must
le, and must lie. overcome by the vir
tue of the people. We nrust. so far as
possiblcprotect our small landholders
In their hands is the future of the re
public. If yon will read the history
of the empires and republics that have
perishedl you will find, that their fail
ure dates from the time when the
lands drifted into large holdings and
were cultivated by tenants or slaves.
So far. therefore, as it can be done by
legislation our small property holders
should be encouraged and they should
be protecteil; their burden should be
made a light as possible and capital
should be made to pay its fair share
of the burdens, of the state. Large
ownerships of land should be dis
couraged and prevented.
"Our system of taxation is the cru
dest on the civilized earth, with pos
sibly the exception of Turkey and
some of the Oriental countries. The
laws of every state are different, and
by means of this, large aggregations
of capital avoid paying their share of
the cost of government. We are just
learning that a franchise tax is the
easiest collected of any. ami probably
one of the fairest ways of raising
revenue. Of course, those who man
age corporations will object, as every
body does, to paying taxes but never
theless it is right and proper. Those
that have the protection of the state
should bear their share oT the bur
dens. "I have always believed in an in
come tax. and have thought that
the decision of our supreme court
igainst Ihe constitutionality of
such a tax was one of ihe most
unfortunate occurrences of the
Ige. We should .have a tax on
all incomes, large or small, exempting
a moderate amount or property from
execution and levy. Thiv count rv is
so rich that with a fair system of
tavatii n and economy in expendi
ture, the tax rate will be so low that
it will not be oppressive, and ihus
we will encourage and protect our
small property holder-."
Here is Mr. Ingalls" conclusion:
"The doctrine of state rights is not
a popular one. out I sincerely believe
that we must come back to it if we
would preserve our government. Our
fathers were wise in their day. an!
they provided a sy.-t.-in of cheek- in
order to preserve the liberties of I he
people, and they al-o reserved to Un
people all rights not expressly grant
ed. The conflict to determine wheth
er this country should be all slave or
ail free nearly dest roved these
checks. It made the doctrine of
state rights unpopular, and for a
quarter of a century c have been
drifting toward a strong gov ern men t
at Washington. Our people rush
from state legi-lat lire- to congress,
from state courts to I'nited State
courts. I'nder one pretext or auoi ti
er Ihe right of the slate is broken
down, and the cry is alwavs for a
strong government, forgetting lliat
the more you condense and crowd in
to Washington the more danger of
corruption anil wrong. Change thi.
an.l vou keep as much at home a
you can. so urn can watch what is
done. I lien, indeed, shall we trans
mit to our children this fair heritage
that we received from our fathers.
"It i- 1 lie last hope of man. and if
it tails here there is 110 more chance
for free government for centuries.
The seeds of liberty that were -own
on the shores of the stormy North
sea ami transmitted here by our father-,
planted by them, nourished and
cemented by their blood and handed
down to us must not lie lost. If we do
our duty as citizens they will be
preserved to ourselves and our chil
dren for this L'uth and succeeding
Kare. indeed, do we find a great
railway magnate, closely connected
as he inu-t be with the great capi
talists, seeing so clearly and talking
so frankiy. I'.ut Mr. Ingalls is first
of all a good citieu and a good
American, a thinker as well a- an
actor. And he is a good democrat,
