What is Bolshevism?
(F. S. In Providence Journal) Thomas Carlyle cried years ago, half in wrath, naif in despair, "Oh, if men only would think!" iNo man in his time pondered more upon the idiosyncrasies of his fellow-men than did this Scotch philosopher, and no man has described human society in the chaos of fermentation as he has It was puite evident to him, as men rule do not give thought to matters beyond their dally tasks, for if they did false philosophies would be laughed into the oblivion of ridicule soon after birth. done. I* is to many of us, that as a Bolshevism is a nebulous, myster thing to most people. It is a ious chameleon in appearance, now seem ing to be an integration of human Slavic elements assuming form, radiat ing energy, and discovering a voice at another time a pitiable . cry to man kind for brotherhood and human sym pathy ; and again it appears like a hive of bees swarming unintelligently as to their destiny, but compelled to read just themselves within their environ ment. pears to be nothing more scum fermentation of a nation. At still other moments it ap than the brought to the surface by the the ideal of the Bolshevism is ignorant dreamer of dreams, of im practicable folk and of all those who would reap where they have not sown. It is vividly Illustrated In that parable in the New Testament which tells of certain householder who, requiring to work in his vineyards, went a men into the market place to hire them, first in the early morning, then at the third hour of the day, again at the and. finally sixth and ninth hours, As will be re at the eleventh hour, membered by all who have delighted in the naivette of this sympathetic story, when evening came the pay each man a penny for his master gave day's work, without regard to number of hours he had worked, and each of us has shared the righteous indignation of the men of the early morning who cried out, saying,"These last have wrought tout one hour, and thou hast made them equal to us which have borne the burden and heat the of the day." make his own Every man can application of this parable. To the man who thinks, however, the follow ing question arises inevitably, viz.: Is a social condition possible wherein hour shall the man of the eleventh rank equally with the man of the ear ly morning, or is it conceivable that society could attain to such a beatific condition that the loafer should share on the same basis with the toiler and shiftless with the the ignorant and educated and ambitious? Yet Bolshevism demands this, de mands It 'With the disingenuous insist of childhood, and either raves ence when its foolish proposals are rejected r strikes out savagely with Its animal strength to acquire toy brute force what It cannot gain by idealistic sophistry.

In sentiment it is appeal that Lazarus shall be fed at the rich man's table, but in practice It is a brutal savagery which, like a wild beast, kills and tortures to vent its bestiality. boiled Even the new oil flo which would an Now that Bolshevism has lit up the sky with its lurid flames, men will see more clearly, and, it is hoped, give to a little serious themselves thought. They should know first that "isms" of this kind of the men of the eleventh hour are merely indigestive however, which up a complaint, gas, demands the services of an intelligent physician, not a quack. They should also realize that the visible regulator of not only material but human des tiny in this world is our good old friend Mother Nature, that she had been on the job many, many millions of years before men appeared on this planet, that she is most decidedly not fickle in her purposes, but continues constantly and with utmost patience to work along well-defined lines, and that the broad highway of natural development is individualism demand ing expression in every living thing, and constant to itself in every chem law of the ical or substance. The survival of the fittest is in many ways a harsh law, but It Is a law of nature, conceived to be her fundamental law toy the first man who reasoned. The law of natural selection is unsentimental. Nature the Individual animal exceedingly wastes no tears on the species of plant or hich she discards for unfitness, and has been absurd as to apol or T\ yet no one oglze for her severity. Mankind has existed long enough to appreciate that But many nature's laws are wise. imaginative intelligence men of an differentiate man from nature, put him In a place apart, and maintain that all of nature's laws do not apply to him; that he has by reason of his mental development become a social being, and not an individualist, as are the that international trees and rivers; brotherhood and not the individual development should 'be the Mecca of his social aspirations. They fancy, or. they dignify 1t In the terms of their philosophy, "consciously believe" that a social state is possible In which the of the early morning and the as men eleventh hour men shall share alike, when the strong shall bear lovingly the burdens of the weak, and when the bursting with lnltatlve shall sit man \ in the public park with his brother the loafer and glorify Karl Marx. Justice and truth are as pitiless | as they are honest. Individualism is | a national law, cold and stern. Bol shevism appeals to men because of [ their weakness, their purely human inconsistencies. It is seized upon by some as an instrument to create idelusive melodies. It expresses desire to place men in high offices who will make every so often a general jail a Kitchenlstie "Is | delivery of wealth, i blood-letting of those men of the early ■morning who are so hated because of their intelligence and love of labor. It is so good to feast on the fruits of vineyard. It is so the other man's delightful and so sweetly sentimental to be able, by the power of office, to say to the men of the early morning; It not lawful for me to do what 1 will with mine own?"

"The war has interfered seriously with routine instructional work. Prac tically all of the upper classmen were gone by the fall semiester of 1917 but in spite of this the school of mines registered the largest freshman class for many years, so that the total en rollment in mining for 1917 was larger than ti had been since 1911. the formation of the S.

Altoegther the pros pect for growth in number of mining students is satisfactory, although as yet the number Is far below that com mensurate with the needs and im portance of the mining industry In the state. The mining short course last winter had an excellent session, the number toeing larger than for many years and the quality of students being excep tionally good. Comparable in some respects with the short-course work is a somewhat popularized correspond course in the generalities of the ence mining industry which it is hoped we may soon be able to offer.

Over one hundred been enrolled In this course, and the school of mines Is glad to have been of national service in initiating this at the university.

"After plans had been made for other work It was decided late in the spring of the current year to make the major effort of the geological survey, for which an appropriation of $4000 had been provided, an examination of the war-'mineral resources of the state. Professor Livingston, assisted in some small measure by the writer, spent a strenuous summer and covered prac tically all known deposits of tungsten, molybdenum, manganese, mercury, an timony and lesser war minerals In the state. Thfe detailed results of this work will shortly be available in the form of a bulletin which should be af considerable value in directing at tention to certain resources of the state hitherto neglected. "In addition between two and three thousand mineral specimens have been determined, and several hundred as says and analyses of rocks and min erals made. "In general and in conclusion, Mr. president, I would like to say that it is the desire of the school of mines first of all to turn out a, sufficient supply of young men soundly and thor oughly trained in the technique and art of the various phases of the min ing industry, who shall be at the same time good citizens and constructive forces in the isolated communities where they are most likely to be called upon to serve; and secondly, to make its equipment, in personnel and ma terial, available for the advancement and assistance of the mineral industry of the state which bids fair to be one of the commanding resources of Idaho for many years to come."
