WYMAN, of Athens' THE GREAT REMEDY w 4 How many times must capital and labor lock horns and greviously wound each other before learning that neither can be destroyed or spared as factors from an eternal plan? How many times must the old error be pointed out that liberty is not license, and that this government, giving its children widest latitude as citizens, yet demands their regard for the rights of others and an obedience to her laws. Granted that labor is necessary, has' rights, and receives unjust recompense. It is helpless without capital, can never enforce its demands . by violence, and must look to education and the progress of the ages for the award of justice. The father of to-day must needs suffer for the welfare of him who shall come after. Has it ever been otherwise? Granted that capital is necessary. It is powerless without labor. Essential to progress, it can neither construct nor improve, it snouid look to tne luture, in common humanity, to see smaller dividends; to decrease effort in escaping just taxes, and to closer interest in the welfare of its co-worker. It must culti vate generosity and analyze justice more minutely. Granted that present conditions are imperfect in many ways. Never since the gates of Eden closed have they been otherwise. Centuries ago there was a woman with her two mites who touched elbows with the holders of plenty', there was a Lazarus at the rich man's gates, and there was an obdurate people who suffered much by taking matters into their own hands rather than, trust to the Moses who led them. Why multiply citations? The pres ent murderous situation comes from prejudice, dissipate it from hate, choke it out from ignorance, educate it from envy, away with it from false theories, let them die the death. This is a great country, and is the shel ter of a great people engaged in a great work. But it is not too great to be measured by the golden rule. In such a balance only can labor and capital se cure their rightful recognition. STATUS OF THE STRIKE. The great strike has virtually col lapsed. The railroads are nearly all running their full complement of trains and have all the men they need - to fill the place of the striking workmen. The deposed men are desperate and turbulent, and train wrecking and damage to railroad property are of fre quent occurrence. State and govern' nient troops are still employed to pre- fcrve order in many localities and sheriffs are having their hands full to ferret out the guilty parties. Arrests are being made right and left. Debs and five of his lieutenants are in juil on a charge of contempt of court in calling out men after an injunction had been issued forbidding it. They were offered bail, but preferred to pose as martyrs and went to jail. Debs still insists that the strike is on and will remain on for six years if necessary to bring the rail roads and the Pullman company to terms. Meanwhile Mr. Pullman offers to start his works as soon as he can get men enough to run to advautage. He will pay the same wages as he was paying when the strike occurred and Will take back all his old employes, but they must make formal application the same as new men. He says that after the works are started he will investi gate the matter of wages and if in any case they are found inadequate he will raise them. It is. expected the men will return within a few days.. The final disposition of the imprisoned leaders is now the matter of chief moment. The charge is a grave one and if convicted a severe penalty is likely to be imposed. NOTE AND COMMENT. The flag is still there. . At last the Vigilant has won a race although an accident to her rival takes off part of the glory. Debs will now have a chance to think; something he evidently has not done for the past few weeks. The Daily News, Rutland's youngest newspaper venture, has given up the struggle after a precarious existence of a few mouths. - The government has already been called upon for $380,000 to pay expen ses incurred in connection with the railroad strike. A writer on the labor war makes the pertinent query that if the United States continues to be much longer "the refuge of the oppressed,'.' where will the oppressed Americans find refuge? Xtt regard., to the. rumor that; Gov, Fuller aspires to the position not r held by Senator Morrill, when that vener able gentleman retires, the Northfleld News, says: ."We don't believe it, as jtw have heard Gov. Fuller declare with in a few montns mat ne naa no mrtner desire for public life at the expiration of his present term of office." According to a Chicago paper the wife of Debs dresses richly and wears diamonds, "a good-sized stone in each ear and two sparklers of about a karat and a quarter each on her left hand." Paid for, of course, by men who are working for "starvation" wages and whose wives think themselves fortu nate to get even a print dress. Miss Ida Wells, the young colored sister who went to England to help create a public sentiment against lynch ing in the southern states, seems to be the cause of considerable commotion on both sides of the water. Reports having come that some enemy was abroad trying to discredit her state ments and injure her character, indig nation meetings are now in order to protest against these attacks and to ex press unfailing confidence in Miss Wells. The best way to settle the mat ter would be for Miss Wells to come home. Her mission can result in no possible good and all the resolutions she could secure in a life time would not avail anything. It is none of Eng land's affair anyway and her protest would be about as effective as one from Iceland against the eating of ice cream in Philadelphia. Lynching must be stopped and will be, but not because of anything England may say. If Miss Wells has the ability she is credited with she can use it to much better ad vantage at home. WAYSIDE TALK. We mention again that in the matter of unions, there is one above ail others, the Union of the States. Debsomania. fully understood, went down quickly wnen tne oia nag came in sigbt, and there was no stronger loyalty shown than bv some of the largest unions. The strike, financially considered, has been a costly experiment ana is estima ted as follows : The United States government t 1,000,000 Loss in earnings, railroads center ing in Chicago "3.000.000 Loss in earnings, other railroads. 2,300,000 Loss by destruction of railway property 2,.O0,O0O Loss to railway employes in wages 20,000,000 Loss in exports, produce and mer chandise 2,nrio,ono Loss on fruit crops o00,0i0 Loss to varied manufacturing companies T.snonno Loss to embloyes 3!i,UiO,mo Loss to merchant on quick goods 6.UO0.OU0 Total. S5,000,000 This is a great loss in times like these. However, the purposes of the American Railway Union managers and Mr. Sovereign are now well known, and it will be a long time before another am bitious organization will endeavor to whip all other kindred bodies into line for the sake of climbing to the top of the heap itself. We feel sorry for the masses of the A. R. U. men, for they were tricked into the unfortunate position in which they now find themselves. Probably not one half of them will be able to get their old or any other places, and the times are hard. For Debs and Howard we have nothing but honest contempt. They deserve all the punishment they win get ;. probably more, sovereign may well resign and get from under the righteous wrath of the Knights of Labor, who had more sense- than to obey his commands. There should be in his place an honest friend and care ful adviser of the laboring man. Notwithstanding the difficulties and dangers incident to traveling on rail roads during the troublesome week past, the Christian Endeavor convention opened on the 11th at Cleveland with 10,0U0 delegates in attendance. Ttns number was largely augmented as soon as the strike collapsed. Quite in con trast to Coxey's army and the Debs' strikers is this assemblage of God fear ing young working people from all parts of the country. They represent, at least, a million organized christian workers, but the whole world is not watching them with feverish anxiety, fearing some mandate from the leaders which will stir up strike from the At lantic to the Pacific. Nothing un American is expected from an organ ization of this character. There is no danger element in .the Christian En deavor convention and we give it . but little thought. It is entirely fitting that this great meeting of peace should so quickly follow the strike of violence. The young men and women who make up the rank and file of Christian En deavor society are earnest in the cause of righteousness and are true American citizens. Their work extends through out the length and breath of the land and their influence is an noted power for good. We must not forget in the excitement caused , by serious labor troubles and anarchy, that the church and her societies are ever advancing and adding to membership and influ ence. Here lies our Nations strength, Now, if the house of representatives will be kind enough to pass the tariff bill, as soon as they can get the thing patched up a long suffering people will be thankful. It is a foregone conclu sion that it must pass sooner or later and this being the case, let it be sooner. Business men want to get down to solid work, and they will do so when the tariff question is settled. We have lived through two great labor strikes this yeary-and it is probable there may be a respite from such troubles for a little time to come. Just a six months without labor and tariff' agitations and there will be a marked improvement in the state of business affairs. Think of the relief in knowing that Debs was in prison and.that congress had adjourned. The reports from over the water are not such as to cause us to smile. The Vigilant has been defeated once more by the Britannia and the Yale boys have lost in the Oxford games. There was creditable work done by the Amer icans who won three out of the nine events and tied their rivals for another. Not so bad a showing after all. The Englishmen have treated the Yale champions courteously and with fair ness. We hope Oxford will send her athletic team to this country another year, in which case there would be reas onable ground to expect to even up points in international sports. The Passing of Debs. As soon as we get the regular mails from Chicago we expect to learn how the Windy City likes "clover," as far as it has got. Springfield Union. It looks as if Debs' experience were going to pass into history as the biggest and most costly case of delirium tre mens on record. Boston Journal. If Debs' salary of 3000 a year is paid him for throwing other men out of employment it cannot be said that he does not earn his money. Boston Rec ord. Strike Leader Debs will live in his tory as the man who organized a boy cott against the laws of the nation and then declared that any attempt to re store the, federal authority would be an act of civil war. New York Press. What greater humiliation ever befell any state of the Union than that which came to North Dakota when her gov ernor telegraphed to the man Debs ask ing permission to bring the state militia back by rail from the state encamp ment V rii.Y.Sun. This republic is made up of men who work. With a million, with two millions, even, misled by Debs, if that were conceivable, there would still re main lo or 16 millions ot American workingmen to defend our laws, to sup port those who are charged with the enforcement of our laws, to maintain our institutions, and to stand by the old nag. jn . i . eun. Anything more despotic and irre sponsible man tne conduct or uebs, president of the American Railway Union, has rarely been witnessed in the history of labor troubles in the United States. He has taken a short cut to notoriety, but not Martin Irons himself has gone into a deeper obscur ity than that into which Debs will shortly vanish. Boston Journal. President Debs' rocket-like advent into public notoriety is inevitably to be followed by an equally sudden plunge into obscurity ; but in the brief inter val of his ascendancy he will have done, even if his pernicious influence extends no further than it has to-day, more in jury to the cause he is misrepresenting than can be made good by mouths, and perhaps years, of patient, well directed effort. Boston Herald. NEWS OF THE WEEK. The president signed the Utah state hood bill Tuesday. Prendergust, the murderer of Mayor Carter Harrison, was hanged at 11.40 o'clock on the morning of Friday the 13th. In observance of the anniversary of the taking of the Kastile President Casi-mir-Perier signed 1314 pardons and commutations.

Bartholomew Shea, who murderea" Robert Ross in the election day quarrel at Troy, N. Y., has been sentenced to be electrocuted at Dannemora during the week commencing August 21. Josiah Quincy and Victor Belanger have given up the unicycle after exper iments of several years. A man iu the west is trying the same scheme with, about the same promise of success. The sentence of M rs. Hallidav. to be electrocuted, has been commuted by Governor Flower to life imprisonment, she having been found insane by a com mission appointed by the governor. The work of laying the new Ansrlo- American cable, which is the largest ever made, has been commenced. This is me eignth cable laid bv the Anglo- American company, the first having oeen iaia in isos. Labor Leader Phelan, representing Debs, has been found guilty of con tempt in interfering with the operation of the Southern railroad, now in the nands ot a receiver, aud sentenced to six months in jail. The Spanish cortes having closed without voting a treaty of commerce with Germany, the German govern ment has notified Spain that commer cial relations between the two countries must be regarded as severed. The senate passed the bill to admit Utah as a state without debate and without division, but there was an im portant amendment.

It will take 10 weeks to take the wheel to pieces and the material will be taken in five trains of 30 cars each to New York city. The expense will be $150, 000."" --. ;' -,,.. ' . On July 12, Judge Barrett granted a certificate of reasonable doubt, in the case of Erastus Wiman and he was re leased. Bail was fixed at $30,000 and was furnished by Charles B. Rouss, the eccentric millionaire merchant of New York city. Minister Taylor at Madrid sends word that the Spanish government has paid over the indemnity of $17,500 for the destruction of the property of the American missionaries who were ex pelled from Ponape, Caroline Islands about four years ago. The colored men have some advan tages in the every day tussle for exist ence. By a vote of 1 12 to 100 the Amer ican Railway Union refused to admit them to membership of that organiza- -tion, and now they are taking the places of union switchmen in many localities. W. R. Laidlaw, who receny won a suit against Russell Sage, the million aire, for injuries received from a bomb shell against which Mr. Sage used him as a shield, is about to bring another suit for slander, on the ground that Mr. Sage has, since the verdict, been speak- 5 ing of him as a blackmailer. The Yale-Oxford athletic contest took place in England Monday. Yale won the broad jump, throwing the hammer and putting the shot, tied the high jump, and lost the 100-yards run, the 120-yard hurdles, the mile run, the 440-yards run and the half-mile run. Oxford having five events out of nine won the match. A horrible accident occurred at No. 8 Stocktqn mine, Hazleton, Penn., Tues day. Two hundred sticks of dynamite exploded among a crowd of men who were preparing to go to their day's work. All of these unfortunates were shattered and torn to fragments. The exact number killed is not yet positive ly known, but it is placed at between 8 and 11. The new cruiser Minneapolis made her trial trip Saturday over the govern ment course, from off Cape Ann, Mass., to off Cape Porpoise, Me., and covered the round distance of 89.94 miles in 3 hours and 49 minutes, and at the rate of 23.07 knots an hour. She broke all records and earned for the Cramp ship building company a premium of $414, 600 for excess above the specified speed of 21 knots an hour. In the last of the Clyde regattas was sailed over the quadrangular course of the Royal Northern Yacht club, the Vigilant was worsted. There was only 1 minute 40 seconds between victor and vanquished. An addition of three min utes for time allowance makes Britan nia win by 4 minutes 40 seconds. News papers reports agree in declaring that the race was without a fluke, was the most decisive of the series and that the Vigilont was beaten fairly aud squarely. A dispatch has been received from the arctic voyager, Walter Wellman, dated at Dane's Island on the north west coast of Spitzbergen, Mav 10, in which he says: "We arrived in six days from Promsoe, thus making a rec ord, as the passage of the 18th parallel was never reached previously so early in the year. We met little ice. All are well." The party sailed on May 10 for the Seven Islands and had not re turned July 6. Professor Oyen was left to guard the provisions at Dane's Island with only a dog for company.
