Public Pmioiice Exhausted. S
Those who have expected that an ar- f
bitration of the street car strike was v
possible, and that the Intolerable sltua- t
tion, under which the business interests s
of the city have been suffering for near- v
ly a month, might be brought to an a
amicable end. had their confident hopes li
uisaiimicu uu me reiusm 01 me sinners c
to confer upon nny other basis than the s
one last named to the company, namely li
"nineteen cents and nine hours or nothing."
This information was conveyed o
to a conference of a committee from the fi
chamber of commerce, In response to ii
their invitation to the strikers to meet ti
three local directors of the road and v
confer with a view to bringing about a t
settlement. The directors were present, d
but a committee from the strikers did 1<
not appear, though two representatives
brought the ultimatum to the hall-way a
outside of the conference room. e
In the news columns of the Intelligent 1;
ccr are (he details of this end4a.vor to f
end a very bad condition of affairs, b
There Is to be no arbitration nor no re- ii
ceding by the strikers. It seems that h
there Is absolutely nothfng else that can s
be done by those who have impartially o
sought to bring matters to a conclusion. 0
The action of the strikers has made the n
last organized effort of business men n
fruitless and by refusing * arbitration n
has rejected the principle laid down e
by many labor organizations In such a t:
With this condition of affnlrs there is p
nothing else to be dons. The question r
now is. are the public patience, the public
interests, the welfare of the business
community to continue indefinitely under
the present strain, without a possl- n
bility, even, of the company and the (1
striking motormen and conductors ever
coming together? The statement that ^
no proposition for arbitration will be
considered leaves no door open. K
In the meantime the matter is In the ^
hands of the public. It cannot stand
the strain of suspenslon of the use of a r
great public convenience and necessity v
much longer. A month has brought in- n
calculable loss to trade. Groat patience
and sympathy have been shown to the s
advantage of the strikers, but it has ac- 1
complished nothing. What more is ex- n
pected, or can be expected? There is a o
time when patiengi ceases to be a vlr- *n
tue in a great community which has v
suffered as this has from large loss of *
business in a busy season of the year. c
Edward Atkinson's Sedition. n
Those who are criticising the official a
action at Washington prohibiting three pi
pamphlets prepared by Edward Atkln- r
son from the malls for the Phlllplpnes, r!
seem to construe that It interferes with
Mr. Atkinson's rights as a cltizcn, and
is an arbitrary act of censorship. Their
defense of Mr. Atkinson, like his own 1
defense, is based on the fact that the ^
pamphlets he has been mailing to the
Philippines, to be read by our troops c
and the Filipinos, are "compilations of
speeches delivered in Congress.'* This P
is a wrong statement of the case in
some particulars. ^
The government does not deny the
right of any one to circulate speeches ^
delivered in Congress, or articles con- v
tnlnorl in no\v?;i)finor?5 Tf wns th(* man- ti
nor In which those speeches wero compiled,
the comments upon thorn In the h
pamphlet, and the headlines couched In *
seditious language, that caused the nc- n
tlon to be taken. These were the fea- a
tures that caused the authorities to pro- c
hibit their circulation In the Philip- v
pines, and not the fact that the pamph- n
lot contained speeches of public men de- 1
llvored in Congress and on the rostrum.
Postmnster General Charles Kmory ^
Smith makes this point so plain that it
is a wonder that the matter is being so
The pamphlets prepared to be read by ^
our troopB In the Philippines nre re- r
garded as seditious, and calculated to t)
incite mutiny, because of their titles
and the accompanying comments. The (-.
titles arc suggestive enough. "Crlnilnal
Aggression by Whom?" is one. This j,
"compilation of speeches" Is accompan- n
led by comments designed to make our _
bravo soldiers believe they are com- t(
mlttlng a crime of aggression In giving
the government their services to aid in jt
carrying out the sacrod obligations of ^
this big nation to restore poacc and
order In territory which it Is under ob- ^
ligations to control until Its'disposition
is provided by the representatives of
the people In Congress. a
Another pamphlet's title Is "The Cost o
of a National Crime." Note how tho C
word "crime" figures In the literature s!
to bo circulated among as faithful regu- h
lar and volunteer soldiers ns ever fol- p
lowed tho Hag of the Nation. Another h
title Is "The Hell of War and Us Penal- J<
ties." Do Mr. Atkinson and his sup- 11
porters sincerely bellevo that the gov- p
eminent should permit such literature s
to be circulated among the nation's 01
troops at a critical time, when their li
rork is .about accomplished? What efsct
do they suppose it would have?
Is it Americanism and patriotism in
his leading spirit of the Boston antimperlallst
society and those who applaud
him to deliberately conspire to
ncite to mutiny the soldiers of the
ountry, the defenders of the honor of
he flag pledged in an international
reaty? Is it not sedition to circulate
mong the troops literature denned to
iduce them to disobey orders, and thus
njure the discipline of the army? Is
,ot the circulation of these pamphlets ,
. ith the startling titles, and comments
enouncing the government of the ,
Inlted States, likely to Incite the troops
o embarrass and resist the government ,
hey are serving?
If these are not the purposes of the
amphle:s what are they being sent to
he Philippines for? What Is the pur- |
080 of Mr. Atkinson anij his officers of
lie misnamed "anti-lmperiallst soclty,"
If It Is not to sow dissensions In
he ranks of the army at Manila? Could
ny other effect be possible, and what
ther reason could the circulators of
his "compiled" and "edited" liternture,
Ith the mlscievous titles and construcIve
comments, have?
In criticising the authorities In stopIng
these malls to Manila the main
olnts and the possible effects should
lit be overlooked In discussing the
lerlts of the case.
A National Law Needed.
The Importance of national laws resulting
business that Is national In its
haracter is exemplified by the ruling
f the Missouri court of appeals upholdng
a state law which virtually denies
o combinations or trusts the right to
ollect debts that are due them In that
tate. A recent decision by the United
tates attorney general was to the efect
that the national anti-trust law
/as Inefficient owing to the fact that
he control of combines was within
tate jurisdictions. As the states have
arlous sorts of laws on this subject,
rtrl !hov nrn nnvlWno- Kilt hn.mnnU.io
rc their workings, a manufacturing
ombination doing business in many
tates cannot avert a confusion which
iterferes with trade.
In the Missouri case a just debt was
utlawed by a state statute which had !
jrits main and proper purpose rendcrig
illegal a combination in restraint of 1
rade. In other states similar laws preail;
in one or two trusts cannot do '
lUslness; in others, the laws are of
oubtful construction, and there is end?ss
confusion. I
Congress was years passing a natlon1
bankrupt law, which was badly need- ]
d owing to the Incongruity of the state
iws which made It unsafe and con- i
using for firms doing large Inter-state
uslness, and led to many complications
n cases of bankruptcy. A national
lankrupt law was an absolute necesity.
The same necessity arises, In view
f the decision of Attorney General
irlggs, with reference to the need of a i
atlonal regulation of business which Is 1
atlonal in Its character,and confined to
10 particular state or states. When \
ach stat.: has its own laws affecting
Ills sort of business and they vary from
ach other, and widely differ in their j
urposes and effects, It seems that some
emedy can be provided by Congress. '
Have Boruii Early ,
Yesterday the Intelligencer contained 1
n editorial concerning a Parkersburg
ispatch in tho Resistor about an al?ged
conference of some Republican j
jaders in this city to arrange a slate
ar next year's campaign. The Intelllencer
ridiculed the absurd story. Mr. 1
l. B. "White was alleged to be one of
he alleged conferees here, as "the repesentative
of Mr. Klklns." The story
,*as of whole cloth. The following pargraph
from the Parkersburg State
ourr.al, Mr. White's paper, gives the <
ource of the story and confirms the
ntelllgencer's estimate of It: ]
Tho Sentinel has a cock-and-bull story
bout an alleged conference of sonic three t
r four Republicans In Wheeling recently.
!o far as Mr. A. D. White Is concerned, ho
.uthorizes us to sny that there Is not a <
i*ord of truth In the story. It Is an ab- ,
urdlty, concocted out of the Invagination

Cubans Want to Work. '
In an article In the current Issue of
he North American Review, General r
Vood, military governor of the nrov- .
ico of Santiago de Cuba, says that the
onditlon of the people of Cuba to-day
5 one of extreme poverty, and in many
rovlnces there Is suffering for want of
ood. "The people," says General
\roods, "contrary to the statements of
hose who are fond of chargng the Cuans
wth bolnp lazy and unwilling to
;ork, are not only willing but anxious
a Work."
This'confirms reports from other unlased
writers. Cuba has been dcvasated
by long years of rebellion, and
ow that peace has come, and freedom
ssured, the dire effccts are to bo overomc.
Within a brief time the land, so
ronderfully rich, will be regenerated

Wc desire to call your attention to tho
many devices used by the Wheeling Rail- j
way Co. to divert public sympathy from
tho employes now on strike for living 1
wages. All communications with signa- '
lures, such as "Citizen," "Sufferer," ;
"Commercial Traveler" and other ambiguous
appellations, are but samples of ;<
the work of their emissaries end satel- J
lites. Do not pay any attention to them.
