MILBANK, Gt fX, TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 1«.
The interest of our citizens in qu$i
tions of political'economy was attest
ed by the goodly audiences which
greeted Mr. J. O. Barrett Friday and
Saturday evenings at the court house.
On Friday evening he spoke of "Chris
tian Industrialism," and on Saturday
evening on the "Correlation of Labor
and Capital." lie made a severe ar
raignment of the present system of
commercial and social life ami thought
we could expect nothing much "better
while society was constituted as it is
now- based on individualism -but
with the advance of thought upon the
line of nationalism he exp^ed a
gradual improvement until that
state was reached when men "toymen extremely mild-mannered gentle
whom we believe incapablt^of con
would brothers be.
Tha legislature adjourns Friday,
and as usual in legislative bodies
many important bills are left to be
hurried through at the last moment
without proper consideration, while
the early part of the session was
frittered away with long speeches
and useless humbuggery. The Aus
tralian system of voting, the school
law, the new apportionment bill, and
a number of other important meas
ures, were taken up for their first,
reading at the end of the session, and
they must all be knocked in the head
or passed with hasty consideration.
The appropriation bill is in the same
fix, but it must be rushed through at
all hazards, regardless of any ill fea
tures it may contain, or leave the
state institutions without means to
keep open. It is the same old story
of lilatoriness and shakes a man's
confidence in the present mode of
The Terrible Draft.
Following is a list of those who have
been drawn to serve their country
upon the grand and petit juries when
justice sits enthroned at the court

Gold & Co., Big Stone

We have received a- private com
munication from a.friend in the conn
try intimating that the "Economic
Class'' is an anarchistic organization,
ai)d warning us to keep away from it
and preserve the IIEKALD from be
coming indoctrinated with Its social
poison. We feel deeply grateful to
to our friend for his solicitude for our
welfare, but we think he is greatly
mistaken in his judgment of the
"Economic Class" and its object, for
as near as we can learn, it has no de
sire to promote a revolution by blood
shed, and we judge this principally
from the character of the men who
compose the class, all of whoiB^v^e
cocting bloodthirsty schemes to over
turn the government and seize the
property of their neighbors. For in
stance, there is Johnny Knapp, we
can hardly stretch our imagination
sufficient to picture him with a glass
of beer in one hand and a dynamite
bomb in the other, shouting to the
class to rise up in its might and de
stroy the American republic or G.
A. Wood, leading a procession with
with a red ila^ at.Its head, and bear
ing banners inscribed "Death to Cap
italists,'* "Bread or Blood," etc.
Longed to hail that season,
By gilted minds foretold,
When men shall live by reason,
And not alone by gold
When man to man-united,
And every wrong thing righted,
The whole world shall be lighted,
A* Eden was ot old.

altogether wrong. The boys are
simply trying to work out the old
problem that has puzzled the philoso
phers for ages, and which the wise
and the good of other days have
sought in vain to solve. The economic
class may be no more successful than
those who have tried it before, but
the study of the subject, with the
universal brotherhood of man as its
inspiration, may serve to broaden
their charity and disclose to lliem the
innate selfishness of the human heart.
The boys may be pardoned if at times
they imagine they have secured the
key to unlock the gateway to univer
sal happiness, aud are within a hop
