"We want aw klos INDUSTRIAL KINGS VS. THE PEOPLE- "We shall not allow any one to tell ng how our business shall be conducted, and we shall not consent to arbitration. Our business Is our own private affair, and. we want no interfereice from Federal, or State, or any other Govern ment." So spoke the Pullman Company to the committee of honorable citizens who appealed to It to arbitrate. Not having any heart or soul, being Incor porated only to command dividends cue of the earnings of ls employes, it cared not for the fact tbat 13,000 out of the 17.000 people who bad produced those dividends and heaped up $25,000,- 000 for Lord Pullman, are dependent on charity. These figures of pauperized Pullman! tea are the report of Chairman Pollans of the relief committee. lie has reported that "more than two thirds of the population of Pullman are in actual want, and some of them are practically starving to death. The absolute ruler of Pullman's 17,000 people says to the people of the United States: We ftbaii conduct business as we please. It Is our own private affair to decrte terms to our employes. We have the legal right to pay them less than they earn, less than living wages, and no one shall Interfere with us. If they starve we are not to be meddled with, Tbe government must be at great expense to protect us and our associated friends, the railway corpora tlons, but that is what the government is for, to "make the rich aecure and the poor content," and it must not presume to rise from doing police duty for me and suggest that I show mercy to my slaves. Seriously, the words of Wickes, Pull man's manager, speaking chiefly for Pullman, as quoted at the head of this article, set before us the great question about which the battles of the future are to rage. If it were a settled ques tion that dividends are right, as well as legal, Pullman's position, haughtily repelling , "interference from the fed eral, state, or any other government," would be well taken. Dutdivldlng tbe earnings of workers among non-work ing stockholders is NOT right. It is robbery, no matter by what sophistry defended. Tbe fOOO.OOO quarterly dividend divided by the Pullman stock holders at thebcglnlng of the strike, was earnings "kept back by fraud" and force, a dividend made possible by cut ting their wages from ,15 to 60 per cent The Pullman Company and its de pendent employes well represents the whole present system of production and distribution, a system which demands from all the workers dividends and rent, either direotly or Indirectly, out of their product. This must come in the form of money, which leaves a corres ponding percentage of goods in the market which cannot be disposed of to the rich, who accumulate rents and dividends which they receive. For example, out of every hundred dollars worth of goods placed upon the market et us suppose that all whose labor of hand and brain have entered Into the produot are paid eighty per cent for their labor, and that ten per cent of the twenty taken from the workers, In the shape of dividends, interest and rent, Is held, or loaned, or invested In the people's resources, In the means of sub sistence, which meaoa an Increase each year in the percentage which landholders and capitalists may take from tbe workers. Now observe that the producers of each hundred dollars worth of goods, on the supposition that they accumulate nothing, that taking them as a whole, old, young and mid dle-aged, they must spend as much as they receive for their labor observe that even spending all, they can not empty the market they have filled, they can buy but eighty per cent of the goods out of the market that they have been paid for putting into the market. And as tbe rich, landlords, capitalists and usurers, care not to use more than half of the remaining twenty per cent of the year's goods, ten per cent have to be carried over, and In consequence, as often aa every ton years produc tion would cetuw. Production does not entirely cease every tenth year, but about every ten years there is a period of market glut, commercial paralysis and manufacturing stagnation which last from one to five years. Now, then, If dividends, Interest aud rent are right, Pullman is right, mon opoly l right, enforced Idleness U right, the compulsory starving V death of the out-of-works U rlgiit, murder Is right. If not profit for imaopolitn and unurvts Is right, panics and iI'hI of hulta depression ar right and should I (Hit!dtrvd social blaings. Hut Uto! llWi!

WHIT BE ALLY GEE AT MEN BAY- It gives us pleasure to print below tbe language of a letter received by Professor Ilerron from a man who, as an editor, author and leader of men, ranks among the greatest and best: H.L. Wivr-ANO, D. D., Kdltur-in-Chlef. A. 0. Woodman, Musineaa MgT THE NATIONAL BAPTIST, 14U0 CheHtnut Street, Philadelphia. June 28, 1894. My Dear Sir: I have not seen a lull report of your remarks at the Univer sity of Nebraska; but from what I have seen of them and from what I know of you, I am satisfied that you spoke only the simple truth demanded by the times; and I believe that the action of the Governor in "rebuking" you was In solent to the last degree. I shall say something about this In the papers. If you happen to have at band a copy of your remarks, I should esteem it a great favor to receive it. Any one wbo reads the papers knows that our great cities and many of our states as well as the Houses of Congress are open to the severest charges, and that no state ment as to tbelr mlsgovernment is likely to be exaggerated; I have no question that you have expended more tbougnt on tne matter under consider ation in one day than the Governor has expended in the whole of his natural life up to this time. While I write only as a matter of personal respeot to you, yet I am wholly willing that you should make any use that you see fit of these few words. With sincere regards, Truly yours, H. L Wayland. THE WISDOM OF UNION Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For If they fall, the one will lift up his fellow; but woe to him that is alone when he falleth: for be batn not an other to help him up. And If one prevail against blm two shall withstand him; and a three-fold cord is not quickly broken. The Book. Slowly the simple truth Is forcing Into the minds of men. For gain the strong, atd for self preservation the weak, are being driven to join hands. Trusts, corporations, partnerships, trade unions, imperfect fraternal societies, Insurance companies all for gain or for defence are recognizing the need and In a measure are practicing the principle of collectivism or brother hood. All sue the losses and evils of competing Individualism, and the gains and greater security of co-operation. Co-operation to oppress and plunder is, of course, evil; but even such co operation, to multiply power, teaches the advantage and makes plain and augments the necessity of our uoHelfish organization Into a strong social body whose members shall naturally and harmonlotiKly serve one auother The law of co-operation la not the spirit of plunder, but the spirit of love and Justice. Sottish co-operation 1 destructive and even self-destructive, it U really a dividing spirit, orgaui.od war Instead of individual war. It can not Income universal. UoultUb to operation Is individually preservative and socially upbuilding, making possi ble the mt economic production it wealth and the widest range of ertiee.

The family alone ha preserved amor j men tbe idea of the world that ehould be, a world where love rules. In many families the .ideal unity of love, of sacrifice, is realized so far as it can be realized by the limited number of the home circle. And individual sacrifice in the home circle is sweet. But family is arrayed against family in in dustrial competition and commercial struggle, and this transmutes family love into a circle of selfishness and sin, selfishness that ts sin. We endeavor to fence off a little fold for the family, but make, after all, only wolf dens, the places where the selfish retire to snjoy the prey, and live lovingly with wife and children. God's plan, as revealed to Abraham, is to destroy all selfishness first in the family, and enlarge the family in pure ly unselfish relations till it becomes the nation, and make of the nation a uni versal kingdem, God's kingdom, into which shall be gathered all the nations of the earth. (Gen. 12; 1-3: 18; 17-20. Dan. 2: 3135, 44). The ideal nation is the enlarged unselfish family circle, a greater family, and the kingdom of God, the actualization of the divine Idea of "the fatherhood of God and tbe brother hood of man." We have the germ unit of ''the king' dom" which is to "fill the whole earth" in the single family, father, mother and children who live together unselfishly, serving one another la love. But this germ must be made to burst its shell, its selfish clrcle.or it will never be any thing but a germ. The Divine Spirit must quicken it and compel It to break its bonds and develop by communities into a national and universal family; or we can have no salvation from family separating selfishness, no de liverance from present evils, no growing kingdom of God. The individual has no right to be selfish. The family has no right to be selfish, selfish, family The nation has no right to be As members of the greater of God we are all, by God, equally provided for, the equally loved children of God, equal Inheritors of his land, mines, air and sunshine, the earth and heaven. And we are made individual, each different from all others, that each may endear himself to all others by his individual service. Some are stronger than others; there fore their burdens should be heavier. Some are wiser than others; but their wisdom should be used for all. Service must not be bought and told. The family into which children are born is intended to be the training school of love. The church, into which the selfish should be regenerated, is properly and must make itself the growing community, nation and king dom of perfectly united, industrially organized, unselfish families. The church must forbid family self-seeking, as well as all Individual selfishness. It must make its members actually mem bers one of another, members whore lntertHts in production and exchange cannot be separated or antagonized . As the human bod cannot be divided, so the social body cannot be a body with divided contending interests. Selfish ness separates and destroys; love or ganizes and saves. Love is creation's first and final law. Love is God. AEMAQEDD0N, THE NEW BONO BOOK- Our new song book, Armageddon, has been delayed by the music typo graphers, but It is now rapidly ap proaching completion. We expect to have it ready for delivery by August 10th, and call attention of the local workers everywhere to it. It will, by Its heart-touching, battle-breathing and educating and uniting truth greatly arouse the people, and there is enough of the humorous element in the songs to attract all classes. Armageddon, we must believe, will be a grest moving and enthusing power in the present campaign, and until the workers of the world win tbe final battle which shall give them perfect justice. It Is a pro duct of the times, for the people, the words being written aud soleoted by one who has both suffered and studied. It la a book for the masses to sing out of in their future mighty coutllct with the classes. See ptrtlal list of tho songs It will contain In propK ius advertisement on third page of tht ptxr.

A Hit! ittaage, Wa'k it, that they, b banking class alone, should take such an inter est In improving Nebraska roads? Soon after Mr. Turner wrote us he called on ns, and we asked him what there was in it for these men (bankers) and himself (he was devoting his valuable time), but he posed as a public spirited citizen and we could get noth ing out of him. But now notice the colored gentle men in tbe wood pile. The bankers are not supporting the Coxey Good lloads Society not at all. They are equally or more anxious to have good roads, but they are constitutionally in favor of interest on bonds. In the June number of Good Roads Clinton Lloyd, a Washington lawyer, lets out the plan for raising the money. Here it is: Now, having first secured the neces sary data, as before suggested, let the State issue its bonds for whatever amount Is necessary to put the roads la thorough repair, and distribute tiie amount to the several counties pro rata on tie number of miles of road, or the annual expenditure. Say, by way of illustration, tbat the State of Pennfyl vanla borrows a num equal to $1,000,000 for each of the counties, making a total -f $07,000 000, and distributes tl as indi cated. Tbls would give Lycoming county $1,000 or $2,000 a mile for overy mile of road; a turn probably sufficient to put tbe roads In good condition for a period of forty or fifty years with tbe aid of trie tramp element, which could be utilized in keeping tfc-m in repair, as ought to have been doue )o-g ago ins ead of feeding tbem at thu public expense in comfortable jails. I he Dm ds should be made to run forty or fifty years, aud each of tbe counties should be as-tossed a sum BuIIleleut v pay toe Interest on the amount of money It te ceived. snd for a slnkleg fund to liqui date the principal at maturity. And juat here, and here alow, could the national government aid tue enter prise In a constitutional way by tlie paHsage by Congress of an act authoriz ing ihe comptroller of the currency to accept the State road bonds ai teeurl y for currency to be furnished to banks organized within the particular State. Sucb supplemental y assistance wouid have several manifest advantage?, tne mortt prominent of which would be ttie solution of ttie imminent question of the security for a national bank cur rency when the present national bonds shall be no longer available; tbe infla tion of the currency for wblch there is such a noisy clamor, but upon a perfect ly safe basis; the furnishing of a ready market for the bonds at the lowest rate of Interest; and the Inducement it would afford to ttie several states to adopt the scheme; not only to secure good roads, but also to secure needed banking facilities. Do you catch on, hayseeds of Ne braska? Bo you swallow? Or do you reach for your guns.-1 Mandersoa Is a fine man to represent you in the Senate, isn't he? Wants to get Nebraska tax payers under, $1)0,000,000 ;flfty, year bonds and compel us to go to the banker bondholders to get money to do ail future business as well as to pay them those bonds with? Great financiering scheme, eh? Some three weeks ago the National Watchman, printed at Washington, de clared in an editorial that Weaver, Allen, Kem and McKeighan had entered Into a fusion conspiracy with the Dem ocrats, and quoted from tbe Farmers Tribune language concerning Bryan which lent color to the charge so far as Weaver was concerned. We did not print it. We could not believe it. And we are glad to see in Tuesday's Demo cratic daily at Omaha a general denial on the part of our Nebraska congress men, and senator. Possibly the denial and the counter charges of blackmail against Dunning, contained in their ad dress to the Populists of Nebraska would, in all the details, have reached more of the Populists of the state if they had sent it simultaneously to the Populist papers as well as to the dally Democratic sheet at Omaha. But we are glad to publish second hand the news of an indignant denial of the fusion conspiracy charge. The Dun ning editorial had, as we have learned from letters received from local party leaders, raised a fear and not a little excitement In the minds of many of our people. The great major ity t f the Populist of this stato reason afttr this fashion: If there Is no dif ference between Populist and Demo crat why do nt tlie Democrats come into our party? If there W a difference which keep them out, the same differ ence must keep u In, and fusion It im- po4ble. Hkhky Gromuk, the great Wader of the single tax movement, ha sup ported Clevelaud and the Deiuoeravlo party for ten year, thinking that with a IK-iiuKrallo victory the tariff would be removed and that to ral.o revenue It would bo in-ci-i.ary to adopt hi method tt taxation, iuu u.cthiKl hleh would aburb rout and cut oft land upoculatlon. lldt tieorgo ha found outlohU r row and wrath that the nnvratto pitrty w n,i ino,., th with an overwhelming ma.oilty la Cong re and Cleveland In tt.o White House, " rYe have the tariff vt."

The millionaires made their money by robbery and debauchery, by the pur- cnase oi judges and legislatures, and now they wanted to preserve them bv the bayonet and the arm of the Federal troop, and for that purpose the rights of states were being encroached on by tbe f ederal authorities. The State Journal editors and dud- lishers furnish the most perfect ex ample of total depravity that can be found west of Chicago, at least. If it bad been true that Senator Allen had been overcome by the power of a slumbering habit, men possessing any manhood, any heart, would have sadlv. sympathetically and kindly regarded his feelings and refrained from publish ing his shame. But to outdo the meanest, lowest and moit vicious of men, the Journal editor publishes a lie 'egardlng Allen, the blackest, most satanlc invention, and gloats over his alleged fall, tbat they may make poli tical capital out of it aud make the lie to injure travel faster and farther than the truth can follow it. Lies persisted in are its stock in trade, but this last Is its worst. We think there are lies thatT men should bang for. Tbb holders of the stock of the Chem ical National bank of New York city ask $4,800 for each $100 share of the stock. The last recorded sales were on bldsof $4,3r0 per share. Corporations usually cover this enormous profit by watering the stock from time to time to keep it down to something like par value, iiut the profit in banking is chiefly obtained from deposits entrust edto banks. The Chemical National t. has deposits of over $30,000,000, money belonging to other people, which it pays only a yery low rate of interest on and loans at the highest rates it can get. Interest retards money circulation, gathers it into the banks and makes falling prices, which bring on panics and periods of business depression.
