THE WEALTH MAKERS.

Govrnmnt Ownership of Railroads
BY GKOHGE BAILEY.
Our revolutionary father in 1776 de
clared to the world that all men are en
do wed with certain inalienable rights.
Then they proceeded to establish upon
this continent a government founded up
on that principle, a democratic form of
government. Webster defines democracy
as government by the people. "A form
of government in which the supreme
power is in the hands of the people and
directly exercised by them.".
Now it seems to me if there is any one
principle which this great American peo
ple should guard with more care than all
others it is this foundation principle of
government by the people; the whole
superstructure of our government rests
upon that one idea and it ought to be
our highest ambition as a people to not
adopt any policy which will conflict with
this great central thought.
The first question to be considered in
deciding whether the government should
own and control the railroads or not is
this: Would not the policy of govern
ment ownership and control of the rail
roads be more in harmony with the prin
ciples of a democratic form of govern
ment than the policy which we have
adopted of fanning out this great gov
ernment function into the hands of pri
vate corporations? I propose to affirm
the question. Democracy A form of
government in which the supreme power
is vested in the people Is not the above
standard the correct one by which to
measure a pure democracy? If it is a
correct standard would not any policy
tending to expand the powers of the peo
ple be a true policy to adopt? If so,
would not any policy that would be of a
nature to restrict the powers of the peo
ple be undemocratic?
The question of government ownership
of these grea industries is rapidly get
ting beyond the stage of experiment into
the realm of successful certainty.
All civilized nations are demonstrating
their ability to successfully manage great
industries upon sound business principles.
England, Germany, Russia, Hungary,
Austria, Switzerland, Australia and al
most every civilized nation on earth, are
rapidly taking advanced ground upon
this very important question and many
of them are owning and controlling their
railroads. It is estimated that outside
of Canada and the United States fully
95 per cent of the civilized governments
own and control their telegraph and
telephone lines. But it is not necessary
for me to introduce to your notice exam
ples from foreign nations to prove the
feasibility and practicability of govern
ment ownership, for our people have
pursued two policies upon this question
and have developed both plans sufficiently
for my purpose; one policy has been in
harmony with the principles of the Re
public, while the other has been antagoj
nistic to said principles.
TIip old policy of surrendering up gov
ernment functions into the hands of
greedy corporations for the pnrpose of
robbing and plundering the people is
growing more and more into disfavor
with the masses as they contrast the
workings of the two systems. I find by
consulting Chambers Encyclopedia that
in England corporations are of two
kinds, either aggregate or sole. A corpo
ration aggregate is a society of persons
authorized by law tos act as one, a cor
poration sole consists of one person and
his successor who are by law invested
with the same capacities as a corpora
tion aggregate. The Sovereign is a cor
poration sole. The king being a corpo
ration sole we find that our forefathers
in their struggle for independence were
fighting to prevent a corporation from
saddling burdens upon them without
their consent. This corporation sole
(viz., the king) would in the olden times
mobilize an army of Pinkertons and drive
the common people from their lands and
homes, then parcel out said lands to
their favorites; and the land in England,
Ireland, Scotland, and Wales is possessed
by descendants of the king's favorites;
and the common people have sunk into
the lowest depths of ignorance, poverty
and degradation. It remains to be seen
whether this fair land (a land in which
the light of civil and religious liberty
shines upon us more brightly than it
ever shone upon any land before) will
trnffer this relic of the old feudalistic
times to get such a foothold as to oblite-
rate this glorious ngnt nanaea aown to
us as an eternal inheritance by those old
'.heroes ot Lexington and Bunker Hill.
We arc told that history repeats itself,
4 with a difference; let us hope that
. . 'ifference in our case will not be in
, wing this glorious light of civil and
i .fgious liberty to contract under this
' id policy of corporate feudalism until it
rfets to so fine a point that the eye of a
prophet cannot descern it. Rather, let
it expand under the blessings of a pure
democracy until ' the mountains of the
Lnnsu nf nnr I.nrd will be bathed in this
glorious light,and all nations and people
shall te allowed to Dasn in un glorious
offulgence.
rYimnrntinna in these latter davs. in
stead of gaining their ends by force of
arms, resort to otner meinoas equaiiy
as successful, for instance: instead of
mobilizingjarge armies of men they mo
bilize large armies of dollars; then they
take a very large division of said army
of dollars aud hie themselves away to
tha hnllu of legislation, and bv niacins
said division where it will do the most
good, they generally are so successful
in their maneuvers that our legislators
surrender to them certain privileges
which will generally enaoie mem io rou

The rapidity with which the cities in
this country are endorsing government
exercise of government functions by
adopting the same policy in regard to
their electric light' plants, gas works.
stieet railways, water works, etc., con
stitute one of the strongest arguments
that could be adduced in favor of gov
ern men t ownership and control of the
railroads. The municipalities all over
this broad land are moving in this mat
ter in a way that can lead to but one
conclusion, and that is that this great
policy is feasible, practical and one well
worthy to be adopted by the nation.
The postal service as managed by the
government at cost to the people is also
another bright and shining light which
is leading our people on to greater
achievements in the same line. Compare
the above policy of postal service to the
people at cost, and the telegraph system
run bv corporate extortion. The West
ern Union has realized $100,000,000 of
net profits in twenty-five years by its
high charges. These figures are incon
trovertible statements made to the com
mittee of the last Congress before whom
that company was represented by its
president.
One objection to the government own
ership and control of the railroads is
that corporations do not pay tneir em
ployes as big wages as the government
does, consequently corporate control of
the transit systems is cheaper than gov
ernment control of said systems would be.
The above policy of the present control
of rrilroads may allow its managers to
declare larger dividends on watered
stock, but that the present system is
cheaper to the people than government
control at cost to the people would be, I
am not prepared to admit.
I believe if the government owned the
railroads the eight-hour system of labor
would be adopted as far as possible. If
an employe was disabled while on duty
he would receive a pension. If he should
get killed his family would receive a pen
sion. And if this nation should adopt
public ownership of railroads the public
would be better served at half the cost
than they are under the present manage
ment. We would have none of those
great strikes, costing the country hun
dreds of millions of dollars, simply be
cause the public transit system would be
managed upon a basis ot justice to ail
parties concerned.

Monopoly and toe Pulpit.
The picturesque and somewhat hyster
ical declaration of a St. Louis clergyman
that "the University of Chicago has been
founded in blood and must and will tall,"
has naturally awakened some discussion
in the religious denomination which con
trols that institution and to which its
assailant belongs. The meaning of the
St. Louisan was clearly that the Stand
ard Oil moneys upon which the great
university is founded were gathered by
methods of injustice and even spoliation,
and carry with them a curse like that
which the fable attaches to Judas' ten
pieces of silver. The latter part of Dr.
Boyd's theory is scarcely to be taken
seriously. Men thrive and grow fat upon
very dirty money. The odium attaching
to evil ways of making a fortune seldom
descends to him who inherits that for
tune does not often, indeed, cling very
pertinaciously to the one who originally
garnered the ill-gotten wealth. "The
jingling of the guinea helps the hurt
honor feels," and the highest places in
society in the state, and even in the
church, are open to him who has success.
fully acted npon rare Ben Jouson's ad
vice:
Oet money; still (ret money, boy,
No matter by what means.
Society will not exact heavier penance
of an institution which has profited by
money acquired in dubious ways than it
exacts of the individual who rolled up
that wealth, ihe sins of the Standard
Oil trust will not be visited upon the Chi
cago university, even though the noble
gray quadrangles of that college stand
iorever as a monument to the triumph
of wealth over the commonwealth.
It is entertaining, however, to note the
line of defense taken up by the clergymen
who hastened to repel the assault upon
the almoner of the Standard Oil funds.
Says Dr. Lawrence, vice president of the
board of trustees of the university:
"John u. Rockefeller has not wrung
money from the people. He may have
crushed smaller competitors by business
methods which all pursue, but if it were
not for the Standard Oil company you
and I would not have such cheap oil to
burn nights. If the money that he has
given to the Chicago university is un
clean what is to be said of the thousand
institutions founded or supported by
men of wealth? Mr. Rockefeller is one of
the quietest men in the world.
His family does not go into society, but
if there is a hospital to be visited you
will find Mrs. Rockefeller or one of the
family there."
We may pass over Dr. Lawrence's eu
logy of his patron's private virtures. To
the serious charges urged against the
chief officer of the Standard Oil company
it is no defense to plead that he gives
lavishly to charity, is a regular attend
ant at church, and is kindly and loving
to his family. That he is "one of the
quietest men in the world" is without
pertinence. So also was that chief
justice of England whom Macau lay des
cribed as "rich, quiet and infamous."
Sharp issue, however, must beia;en with
Dr. Lawrence's declaration, "He may
have crushed smaller competitors by
methods which all pursue." Emphati
cally all do not pursue the methods of
the Standard Oil company. If all did,
the state ot this nation would be that
popularly called anarchy. Bribery of
legislatures and courts would be the rule
rather than the exception. Business
rivalries would be prosecuted with the
aid of thugs and incendiaries. Railroads
would habitually be employed to build
up private monopolies. A score of huge
corporations would control all lines of
business and the small dealer would be
forced to surrender his independence and
become an agent for monopoly. It is a
queer commentary on the position of
ethics in a church that a leading divine
can say with entirecomplaceney that the
methods of Standard Oil are the ordin
ary business methods of the day.
But the most curious error in the
clergyman's defense of the monopolist is
hisstatement that but "forthe Standard
Oil company you and I would not have
such cheap oil to burn nights." Doubt
less he has never investigated the subject
about which he speaks so positively
Had he done so he would have discover
ed that the great reduction in the cost
of kerosene oil was made before the
Standard Oil company secured its mono
poly of refining it. Under the sway of
this monopoly reductions in price have
been practically checked, improved pro
cesses for increasing production and
cheapening the cost of refining have been
suppressed. Monopoly has not only
crushed its rivals but has taken its toll
from the public. It is for that monopoly
exists, and not all the eloquence of sub
sidized clergymen can convince the people
that the greatest monopoly in the coun
try is other than a menace to public
safety or that its methods have been
other thun immoral and despicable.

The following sample notices given
Armageddon show how it is appreciated:
ARMAGEDDON, or the final battle batwesa
the wealth-makers and the wealth-takers.
This is a splendid collection of stirring
and patriotic songs with music, it con
tains 140 pages aud over 60 songs set to
music besides a dozen not set. A number
of these same songs have been Bold by us
at 20 cents each. These songs are George
Howard Gibson's best. Price, post paid
35 cents, or $3.60 a dozen. American
Nonconformist.
Armageddon is the name of a new song
book published by "The Wealth Makers
Publishing Company," of Lincoln, Neb.,
at 35 cents a copy. Armageddon is by
far the best book of its kind it has ever
been our pleasure to examine. The book
contains 70 songs, 57 of which are set to
music, and every one is a gem. There is
no chaff in the whole book. The songs
are strong and ably written, while the
music is of the very best. Ueorge How
ard Gibson, editor of The Wealth. Mak
ers, is the author. His name is never
attached to any second class literary
production,. There is ever an elevated
tone to bis writings. His newspaper is
one of the very best reform papers in
existence and Armageddon is, we think,
decidedly the best book of songs any
Alliance or labor organization can possi
bly find. The Sledge Hammer, Meadville
Pa.
Now is the time to make good use of
Armageddon. It ought to be in every
Populist's home. If our songs areevery
where sung, made popular, our cause
will speedily succeed. Let singing clubs
be formed to master the music of this
book. None finer or more effective has
ever been written. "God Save the Peo
ple" is a mightily stirring piece in both
music and words. "Our Line of Defense"
is another thrilling song Bet to the finest
patriotic air of Germany, "Die Wacht
Am Rhein." But we have not space to
tell of the merits of each one of the 70
songs which the book contains. Humo
rous, pathetic, thrilling, awakening, en
thusing, calling forth all that is manly
and noble, all love of right and justice,
and marshalling the hosts to battle, it
should be sent for and made use of by all
earnest men and women now. Get
ready this winter to sing these industrial
gospel songs everywhere.

nf the
FERTILE SAH LUIS VALLEY, COLORADO.
THBE BAN LUIS VALLEY, COLORADO, is a stretch of level plain about
as large as the State of Connecticut, lying between surrounding ranges
of lofty mountains and watered by the Rio Grande River and a score or
mora of small tributary streams. It was the bottom of a great sea, whose do
posits have made a fertile soil on an average more than tea feet deep. The
mountains are covered with great deposits of snow, which melt and furnish
the irrigating canals with water for the farmers' crops. '
The Climate is Unrivaled.
Almost perpetual sunshine, and the elevation of about 7,000 feet dispels all
malaria, nor are such pests aa chinch bugs, weevil, etc., found then. Flowing
artesian wells are secured at a depth, on an average, of about 100 feet, and at
a cost of about f 25.00 each. Such is the flow that they are being utilised for
irrigating the yards, garden and vegetable crops. The pressure is sufficient to
carry the water, which is pure, all through the farmers' dwellings.
Irrigation.
Already several thousand miles of large and small irrigating canals have been
built and several hundred thousand acres of lands made available for farming
operations. Irrigation is an insurance against failure of crops, because suc
cess is a question only of the proper application of water to them. The loss of
a single corn or wheat crop in Nebraska, for instance, would more than equal
the cost ot irrigating canals to cover the entire state, so important is the cer
tainty of a full crop return to any agricultural state. The San Luis Valley
will grow
Spring wheat oats, barley, peas, hops, beans,
potatoes, vegetables and all kinds of small fruits
and many of the hardier varieties of apples,
pears and all kinds of cherries.
In the yield of all these products it has nkveb been surfameb by amy oran

acres of such lands located in the very heart of the San Luis Valley, all within
six miles of the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, convenient markets and
shipping stations, for sale at 15.00 per acre. MoBt of these lands are fenced
