THE REBATE IS NOT THE ONLY
The organs devoted to the cause of
the railroad combines announce that
the finding of four Bee£ Trust officials
is conclusive proof that no further
railroad or rate legislation is required
to protect the public from extortion
This is in itself pretty good evidence
that such is not the case.
Because four men have pleaded
guilty under a statute twenty years old
it does not follow that in that law
resides enough to save the ordinary
citizen from the rapacity of railroad
As a matter of fact the rebate, while
perhaps the most villanous, and cer
tainly the meanest, of railroad abuses,
is by no n»eans the only method by
which the railways and their allies
defraud the consumer and destroy the
man outside the boodle junta. We do
not have to look further than the case
of the robber Coal Trust to prove this.
The railroads which illegally hold and
operate the ccai fields agree on a rate
so high that the independent operators
can make no greater profit sending
their product to market than by sell
ing to the railroads at their own fig
ures. Indeed, the rate, approximately
two-thirds of the tidewater price, is
designed particularly to guard against
The Coal Trust is only one instance
of this sort of thing. With variations
it appears in the case of half a dozen
other conspicuous industries, and it is
in itself the very best argument for a
law empowering the Interstate Com
merce Commission to fix rates and to
enforce its decrees. The imposition of
a comparatively trifling fine in Chicago
is not going to make any real differ
ence in the beef iniquities.
Had these fines been jail sentences,
the packers, who squeeze the stock
grower with one hand and the con
sumer with the other, -might have seri
ously considered the advisability of
obeying the law. As it is they will
merely charge the fines to the people
who have to buy meat and trust to
luck and the kindness of an Attorney
General for the future.
Even conceding that the Rebate law
is capable of being made effective, it
rests with a single officer, the Attor
ney-General, to invoke it, and it cover's
only one corner of the vicious system
of railroad abuses.
LET THE PEOPLE RULE.
As long as the people have no veto
on the acts of their representatives
they cannot at all times expect to pre
vent undesirable legislation. Unfor
tunately experience shows that the
corporations and party machines have
more power with a majority of those
entrusted with legislative power than
the voters have who elected them.
Where the voters have resumed their
full sovereignty and have the power
to initiate laws and also call for a re
ferendum vote, corruption and graft
ing is no longer able to defeat the will
of the people. This idea is admirably
stated editorially in the Buffalo En
quirer of recent date, under the title,
"People should own government' and
"There is much discussion about pub
lic ownership of natural monopolies.
But there is one thing which is admit
"THAT THERE MUST BE PUBLIC
OWNERSHIP OF THE PEOPLE'S
It must not be assumed that this
exists at present. It does not. The
proof that it does not lies in the fact
that legislation is not always in the in
terests of the people as a whole. Else
there would be no beef combine, no
oil trust, no coal monopoly.

There may not be so many rainbow

but for work that Counts for something
for the worklngmen and women of to

formed a most valuable service*
A JAPANSES TRICK WORTH
The cheerful apprehension that it
will be impossible to dig the Panama
Canal without 'fearful loss of life
through malarial fevers, smallpox, yel
low fever and other plagues suggest
that if our own health forces feel
this way, about it it might be a wise
thing to let the sanitary part of the
contract to Japan, which has now a
real medical corps that will soon be
out of a job.
"'he little brown doctors who were
able to smash the military axiom thai
four men would die of disease to every
one killed by the enemy, might be
equally able to lay the spectre that
demands a human life for every rol of
the canal route. The old formula uf
mortality down there was a man for
every tie in the railroad, but even the
Occidental plague fighters have pro
gressed since that time.
The Japanese fought one of the
greatest wurs of modern times, with
larger armies than we employed
against the South, amid extremes of
climate, and they did it without letting
a single epidemic get headway among
their massed half million soldiers. They
kept the disease statistics almost to
the point they are in peace times, and
Instead of losing four men in five of the
total of mortality by sickness they lost
only one in six.
If it is possible to make a record like
this in a war it ought to be a very
much less serious problem to match
it in effectiveness in conducting a work
unhampered by a hostile army and un
hurried by the exigencies of a cam
POVERTY AND PLENTY.
Alfred Russell Wallace, the great
English scientist, who shares with
Darwin the discovery of the principle
of evolutions, says: "The crowning dis
grace is that with a hundred fold in
crease in our powers of wealth, produc
tion adequate to supply every rational
want of our whole population many
times over, we have only succeeded in
adding enormously to individual
wealth and luxury, while the workers
are on an average as deeply sunk in
poverty and misery as before." Capi
tal and labor are said to be partners
and should be firm friends, but when
a machine is invented to displace labor,
the capitalists. forget all about that
partnership business and turn the
workers adrift without even a word
of regret. The use of machinery has
increased production a hundredfold,
but the owners reap all the benefits
and they also, with manifest injustice,
have secured all land and what it
yields. Thus we have the contrast of
immense fortunes and the most bitter
poverty and suffering.
OVERTAKEN BY JUSTICE.
The mills of the gods are grinding
the Citizens' Alliance anarchists of
Idaho Springs. At Georgetown, in the
district court, where Decker, the union
miner, has been prosecuting his suit
for $10,000 damages for having been
thrown in jail and afterwards deported
by the Citizens' Alliance mob shortly
after the blowing up of the Sun and
Moon transformer house, the Jury have
been Instructed to bring in a verdict
for the plaintiff. A number of other
suits of similar nature will soon be
tried. The defendants' mostly mine
owners and their paid hirelings, dared,
not Introduce any evidence for fear
their whole evil course would come to
light. Idaho %ringts will have to
pay dearly for the evil reputation the
mine owners' association has fastened
upon her. Unlike Cripple Creek, she
has no complaisant prosecuting attor
ney to nolle the cases for her criminals.

A number of friends of John D.
Rockefeller in Cleveland the other day
serenaded him at his home in the good
old fashioned way, and told the great
monopolist what an exemplary citizen
he was. Now we know that the critic
Ism for this display of admiration for
King John will be severe, but will it
be wholly merited? Mr. Rockefeller
will die one of these days, and an
other will take his place who may
be more greedy than Rockefeller ever
dared to be. The condemnation at ths
man is not so necessary as the system
which permits a man to do those
things which have given Rockefeller
and his associates the power and
wealth that they enjoy.
In the face of the recent disclosures

A SHINING UNIONIST.
Can I a shining Unionist be,
A light for those who trust in me,
A light, a light in darkest night,
To guide the feet of tollers right?
O that I might
Be such a light.
Can I a beaming lighthouse be,
Whose beacons stream acro*s the sea,
And help the faint and shipwrecked
On breakers high the wild night
And from the wave
Rescue the brave?
Can I be like the strong sunbeam,
Whose warm enlivening golden gleam,
Drives winter's chilly blast away,
And brings the glorious summer day,
Can I so shine,
Like one divine?
Yes, yes, I can, I will,
I'll be a city on the hill,
Will all my walls and towers ablaze
And send my beacons out on the ways
With all my might
For truth and right.

Kansas City Journal:
A half million trees a year for west
ern Kansas farmers sizes up thd work
of the Dodge City, Kan., forestry sta
tion. It hasn't been so many yeais
since a tree was a curiosity on the semi
arid plains of the west. Now little
clumps of timber can be seen on every
hand. They render a valuable service,
too. They furnish wind breaks for
stock in the winter, shade in the sum
mer, check hot winds and bring mois
"There has been a wonderful change
in climatic conditions of western Kan
sas," said Representative Chalk Bees
on. "I can remember when the bliz
zards from the north in the winter
would kill cattle by the thousands and
the hot winds from the south wouid
burn up crops and pastures in the sum
mer. We got caught coming and going.
Now we are not bothered with either.
The trees break the blizzards in winter
and the hot winds in summer. The
saving to the farmers in cattle alone
runs Into the thousands of dollars.
And as for crops, we haven't known of
a failure since the trees got big enough
to do business."
The salvation of the western country
depends more upon trees than on irri
gation. Only a small part of the coun
try can be irrigated at all—the river
valleys. The government Is spending
$250,000 making irrigation experiments
around Garden City. If they prove
successful the farmers in the long run
will have to foot the bill. If they fail
the government will be the loser. But
irrigation affects only a small area. It
Is the handling of the upland at a
profit that will count. And It seems
that trees offer the only solution of
what has seemed a difficult problem.
The government has set aside 60,000
acres of "land in Finney county for a
tree reserve. Experiment will be made
to find out what species of timber is
best adapted for this country. The arid
districts of Europe, Asia and Africa will
be searcehd by experts for trees that
thrive without much water. As soon as
the government has its reserve well
started it will supply trees to western
farmers at small cost and encourage
them in every way to start groves.
The state now supplies 500,000 trees
annually to the farmers. These are
produced at the station and shipped out
in the spring. The farmers simply have
to pay for their delivery. No charge
is made for the trees by the state.
From the Chicago Evening Post:
A Missouri judge has indorsed the
decree of the Cook county Judiciary
permitting a wife to go through her
husband's pockets while he is sweetly
dreaming the happy hour3 away. This
opinion has been defended also by
Home of the ablest members of the
Chicago Woman's club, and up to the
present time no married man has been
found with spunk enough to contest
it! What the wife will do If she finds
a hole in the pocket Instead of money
depends measurably on the nature of
the woman. There Is no telling to
what extremities the man will be push
ed If the Judiciary continues to favor
the women, but the time may come
when we shall be obliged to pay our
street car faro in check#.
THE LABOR WORLD,
Robert Hunter Shows the Daily
Plight of the Poor in Rich
On* day I visited the family of a
man who had been prostrated by heat
while at work with a street paving
gang. They were a family of seven,
living in a two-room apartment of a
rear tenement. The day was in Aug
ust and the sun beat down uninter
mittently and without mercy. The
husband had been brought home a
few hours before. The wife, in a dis
tracted but skillful way, found path
ways among the clamoring children.
The air was steamy with a half-fin
ished washing, and remnants of the
last meal were still upon the table.
A crying baby and the sick husband
occupied the only bed. I had known
before of five people sleeping in one
bed but I learned here that the father
and oldest child usually slept on the
floor. As I watched the woman on
that day I understood a little of what
it meant to live In such contracted
quarters. To cook and wash for sev
en, t6 nurse a crying baby broken out
with heat, and to'care for a delirious
husband, to arrange a possible sleep
ing place for seven—to do all these
things in two rooms which open upon
an alley tremulous with odors and
swarming with files from the garbage
and manure boxes, was something to
tax the patience and strength of a
In this instance the man had brok
down and sickness is most serious
when it attacks the bread-winner of
a working-class family. The sickness
of wife or child is far less terrifying.
However painful the disease or dis
tressing the consequences, the family's
peace of mind Is not shattered by
fear and dread of want. The man is
not kept from his work, and his earn
ings, made more necessary by the
sickness, may still supply tire family's
needs. The diseases which kill or un
dermine the health of the adults, es
pecially the man, are the ones which
strike terror to the heart of working
class families. Those which almost
invariably cause death—such as can
cer, pthlsis, BrlghVs disease, diabetes
—as well as those which permanently
incapacitate a workman—such as apo
plexy, paralysis, etc.—the many acci
dents in industry which cripple the
body, and the diseases arising from
certain dangerous trades, which perm
anently undermine the health, are the
forms of sickness which generally
mean for wage-earning families pov-,
erty and often pauperism. Such dis
eases afBect the welfare of the whole
family. They stop all earnings unless
the wife is able, or one of the children
old enough, to become a wage earner.
Sickness asumes a .new and more ter
rible meaning when one realizes that
the mass of wage-earning families are
pathetically dependent upon some one
person's health.. ^Anyone familiar with
the poor knows with what grim deter
mination half-sicW workmen labor un
der this heavy responsibility. Ah Ital
ian workman once' dying of consump
tion once said to a friend of mine,
who was urging him as a last hope to
quit work and go to a sanitarium.
