Thn attempt of the plutocrats to
muzzle a free press and free speech Is
an old as the government. Hamilton
and the Federalists tried It and wero
so thoroughly defeated that as a party
they disappeared' Irwn the stage of
American politics, hut their teachings
tinfortunutoly did nut die with them,
and now appear again under the stress
of natlonul misfortune, taking advan
tage of popular excitement to again
rear Its IiIiIcoiib bend. Tho Nashville
News well describes this when It says,
An arbitrary government mid a freo
press can never agree' together without
an explosion. This Js a self-evident
fact, and Is the touching of history,
It Is as well known to the gentlemen
who are seeking to monopolize the In
dustries of the nation and lax till the
people for their Industrial benefit as it
was to Thomas Jefferson or any other
of the founders of the government.
Froo speech Is eHBeutlal to a freo pco
plo, and the one cannot exist without
the other, Undoubtedly tho blackest
portend of trouble In the future which
bus recently shown Itself is the dis
graceful attempt of tho organized cap
ital of the country, through Its subsi
dized newspapers, to use tho sentiment
aroused by the mittouul misfortune of
tho murder of the president, as an ex
cuso for an attack on the freedom of
the press, If this wero an Isolated case
It could bo put down to the Idiosyn
crasy of some hysterical editor, But It
Is national uiul shows unfortunately
from tho number of papers engaged lu
it, that an enormous percentage of the
dally press has been acquired by tho
same' Interest which now controls prac
tically nil the transportation lines, the
ooul oil, the ships, tho Iron, tho stool,
the coal nnd the agricultural machin
ery plants, and which Is reaching out
after a monopoly of the hardware, the
rot.ull dry goods buslines and the fed
eral Judiciary. The order has been Is
sued, uud from Maine to California tho
chorus of yelps and howls from the
pack has answered vociferously. The
burden of tho song Is tho same in ev
ery case. Tho cry Is "yellow Journal
Ism," and the (lemiind Is that tho gov
ernment be allowed to decide what
may be said and what may not he suld
In u newspaper about public affairs.
Tho civil government In tho Philip
pines which was established on Dec
laration Day to emphasize that a cer
tain amount of freedom had been in
augurated and to carry out promises
niado to these Filipinos who surren
dered, Is a farce. It now appears the
military claim full authority and have
ordered tho deportation of n civilian
who on appeal to the Supreme Colin,
that the civil end of the dual govern
ment has set up, has been ordered re
leased under a writ of habeas corpus.
General Chaffee, however, holds that
tho court has no such power und Is In
fact a figurehead to please the Filipinos
nnd fool tho American peoplo Into be
lieving that peace exists there, and has
nppeuled to the war department, who
Is, through the president, the real
power under the extraordinary Spooner
The trouble arose from the fact that
the government has been trying to
carry wntor on both shoulders, to bo
prepared to truce Its authority to
either sourco as legal exigences may
."em to require with a view to meet
ifce constitutional questions that are
before the United States Supreme
Court. If the civilian can be deported
by the military commander there can
certainly I.) no civil government In
the Philippines, and tho expensive one
that has been sot up is worthless.

The steel strikers appear to have
if.'Wiied a lesson from the result oi
tlntr late repulse by tho steel trust,
for their organ, the National Labor
Tribune, In discussing tho effect of the
strike, says: Now, us a mutter nf fact,
there is never likely to be a tlnm when
tho steel corporation can afford better
to precipitate a fight than It could the
past summer. What it fears, and what
every other trust fears, above every
thing else Is a public anti-trust agita
tion which will nffeet tho elections,
and either bring about hostile legisla
tion by the existing congress or bring
Into power n congress representing a
hostile political party. A year from
next month a now congress will be
elected, Two years from that again
there will be elections for not only a
new congress, but for a new president.
The best time for a strike, from the
company' standpoint, Is when there Is
no political campaign In progress. Tho
worst time, from Its standpoint, Is tho
time of a campaign of some Import
ance. Till.: COAL TKI'MT.
The coal trust, it now appears, can
work the double twist on the price of
coal. As the trust controls the rail
roads that carry the coul and nlso owns
tho coal mines, they can, when they
have raised the price of coal to the
top notch, give it an extra twist by
raising tho frelsht on coal, "ull the
traffic will bear," as the following in
terview in the Washington Post shows:
"While the recent combinations of rail
roads in this country have not mate
rially advanced freight rates so far as
coal Is concerned, they have resulted
In the price of coal being Increased,"
remarked Mr. John Duff, a coal Jobber
of New Bedford, Mass, "You tee." hi
continued, "All but about 15 per (mi
of the total output of coal of the Unit
ed States Is controlled by the railroads,
Prior to the consolidation the roads
owned as many mines ah they do now,
but It was Individual ownership, and
competition kept the price down, Now
there Is no competition, and as a re
sult wo pay Just about $1 a ton more
for coal, both hard and soft, (ban we
did one year ago,
"The Lehigh, the I'll! hole phi i and
Heading, the Delaware, Lackawanna
and Wostern, the Jersey Ceutrul, and
the Pennsylvania roads in the big Mor
gnn syndicate own practically all the
coal mines In this Kaslern section,
They secured them by Increasing
freight rates to the mine owners along
their lines, thereby compelling them to
sell out. Railroad rates for shipment
of coal are ubotit the snnie, but they
stay down because tho companies don't
have to put them up. 'They put the In
crease on the coal Itself, Of course we
here In the East ship most of our con I
by water, but most of the barge com
panies aro controlled by tho railroads
of the combination, Rarrs have not
advanced for water shipment, because
an Incrense would Immediately drive
many vessels now carrying other prod
ucts Into the coal business,
President Roosevelt In his Minneap
olis speech dollvered but a few weeks
before his accession to the presidency,
said: "We shull tlud It necessary In
future to shackle cunning as In the
past we have shackled force, The vast
Individual and corporate fortunes, nnd
the vnBt combinations of capital,
which have marked tho development
of our Industrial system, creato now
conditions und necessitates a change
from the old attitude of the state nnd
nation towards property."
To which the Kansas City Star re
plies: "These aro pointed and direct
sentiments Inspired by conditions to
which no thoughtful and sober-minded
man can hu blind. They are not
littered In any spirit of Intemperance
agitation or any false alarm for polit
ical pui poses. They come from an In
fluential member of the party which
capital In modern years has regarded
as its chosen champion. They do not
proceed from a poison who bus ex
cited the suspicion of the conservative
element by the radical character of his
If President Roosevelt tries to
shackle the trust and corporation,
which are ull noted for their entitling,
he will split tho Republican party Into
two camps. Ho will have the common
peoplo with him, but the Republican
politicians will bo ugalnst him, at
least tho most Important of them who
are maintained In their places by the
money of tho combines. Hut Presi
dent Roosevelt making a stump speech
and Roosevelt as President may be en
tirely different persons.
The Wall street sharks and their
side partners, the bunkers thereabouts,
should keep u tighter muz.lo 011 some
of their number or buy up some more
of the newspapers that are npt to let
the cat out of tho bug. To work their
graft on the United States treasury
they should all stick to the same tale,
or the people will be Rsklng with
more emphasis than they are now, why
tho treasury should be run In tho in
terest of tho banks and the Wall street
gamblers, The bankB of New York
made a demand on Secretary (in go for
money. Ho gave it to them out of the
United States treasury in order that
the money stringency might be re
lieved. Now comes a banker of New
York Forgan of the First National
who says In the Chicago News: "At
tho sanio time our deposits are keeping
up In a highly satisfactory way. Conn,
try banks are not withdrawing their
balances und this Is doubly gratifying
when applied to the Institutions In the
northwest where heretofore thu de
mand at this time of the your has
necessitated a heavy diminution of the
moneys deposited In thn reserve cen
ters." I'nder the circumstances w hy do
you suppose Mr. Gage was so ready to
extend aid to the New York blinkers.
The financial organs of Wall street
uro hinting that another combination
of capital will soon be announced that
will be more startling than the enor
mous Steel trust, but they do not toll
us what line of enterprise Is to be
monopolized. The consolidation of all
tho railroads Is about due, Instead of
the community of Interest plan they
are now working under. In vustuess
of capital and the number of men em
ployed that combination would bo a
fearful menace to our political Institu
tions which would make thousands of
votcis at the beck and call of one man.
The Inevitable result of the Imperial
istic tendencies of tho government Is
found in the annual report of the
heads of bureas of the army and navy,
They all demand moro officers und
more men, and tell of the great, dan
ger to the country If their demands
are not complied with. As the army
has been raised to a maximum of 100,
000 men and the naval force largely
Increased by the last congress, the
formw at all events far beyond what
Is necessary, these demands for a stlil
greater Increase Is pretty good proof
that the Democratic charge of militar
ism is rapidly being accomplished.
A report Just issued by the English
Hoard of Trade gives statistics of the
changes In rates of wages nnd tho
hours of lnbor. Tho great feature is !
tho rise In coal miners' wages, which
In the different districts rango from 36 '
to 43 per cent. No wotider tha English
nre unable to compete with American
coal, with our lower miners' wuges and
much lass value of coal lands.
