ST Hl* IS AM) LNIOftS. The obstinacy of the coal barons to lead their aid to solve the coal xtrike and tbu* avert an appalling public cab-.m ity deserves the condemnation of every right thinking man. A part from the essential difference* which divide the ojx-ratoi* and dtriker* there i* aiiotlier party the public to lie considered in this grave industrial situation as pointed out by President Roosevelt. It is necessary for the public to have anthracite coal to live comfortably during the winter, and when the fact is considered that 90 per cent of the an thracite deposits are embraced within the limits of the strike and that th?re is little cr no anthracite on the market, the gravity of this industrial warfare is approximated. Both miners and oper ators should haye sank their differences for tiie time being, called a truce, and the mines should have been working now to their fullest capacity. But, no, the operators would not heed the advice tendered by the president simply because one man representing a vast body of workers, John Mitchell, was a party to the conference called at the White House, It is queer that the tendency of capital, is toward concen tration, yet this same capital strikes blow after blow at each effort of labor to concentrate. The irresistible and economic tendency drawing capital into [ssils is juntas irresistible an 1 effectual in combining laisir. The coal barons m.iv win a victory over the miners, but it would lie but a brief one, because at the first realization in the minds of non union miners that their situations were burdensome there would naturally spring op a desire for a remedy and labor lias but one remedy unionism. For our own part we would wish for a relationship between capital and laisir based on merit. We believe, that Ihe principle of combination for the control of prices or for the fixing of wages, is false as viewed from a wise economic policy. A worker should be rewarded in proportion to the value of his work For instance a union fixes a minimum scale of wages: this minimum scale includes the poor as well as the good material; the scale necessarily operates to the disadvantage of employ er and employe, the employer suffers by having frequently to pay inexper ienced help the same price as competent help, and capable workman suffer often times by having t > work at the mini mum scale when he is worth more. Merit should be the only basis of com liensation, but whether such an ideal state of affairs will exist seems proble matical . WHERE WILE IT AEE LEAD TO?

If book houses shall be allo wed to secure the defeat of one candidate and the success of another through a money contribution will they not be tempted to do all their business by equally questionable methods'?

The enthusiasm that his canvass of the state has aroused, the accession of independent and dissatisfied Republican voters to the support of the Democratic ticket, every where evident, indicate that the people of Wisconsin have fully determined to return to a reign of reason and give to the state an administration devoted to the retrench ment and economy in pnblic expendi tures and put an end to the turmoil and agitation that La Follette and his de luded followers have aroused through out the sta.e since his unbridled am bition was given free rein by his election to the high office of governor of the state of Wisconsin. ABOUT THE TARIFF- Speaking about the tariff and bad times the Springfield, (Mass ) Republi can says: “There is no difference between the present tariff situation and agitation and what the country exper ienced during the congressional elections of I him). Then we heard less about the trusts, but the individual manufactur ers, taking advantage of the high duties imposed by the newly enacted McKin ley law, brought alwuit quite a general advance in prices, which fell suddenly and harshly upon the pockets of the people, and was supposed to have caused the great political overturn of that year, when a Republican majority in ihe house was turned into the small est minority that party had had since liefore the civil war, “Republican orators then, while un able to deny facts as to prices, urged the consideration that competition was still free and open in the home market and must in tine time grind down home prices to the lowest level consistent with living wages and profits; and Speaker Reed particularly pressed the argument that the high tariff, by invit ing new capital into manufacturing at home, and forcing foreign manufactur ers into sharjier competition for out side markets, gave a doube twist to the screws and greatly inter sifted competi tion all around thus making the high tariff of benefit to Ihe consumer above any other interest. “There was some force in this argu ment. though it availed not to save the day for the high tariff [leople, but what ever force belonged to it has been taken away by the rise of the trusts, which, by the way, are defended for abating the ruinous force of competition as the tariff in IHIIO was defended for intensi fying competition.

And we have precisely the same complaint now in respect of the Dingley tariff as we had then in respect of the McKinley tariff-high commodity prices and pro fits of a particular industrial class, made possible by high protective duties. The grievance is essentially the same today as a dozen years ago. “Whether the political outcome is to be the same at the November elections is another question. Whether it is de sirable, from the standpoint of bringing to pass an intelligent popular under standing of the tariff and its relation to Industry—whether it is desirable from this standpoint that the outcome should be the same, is decidedly to be question ed. The protected interests can much better afford to lose these elections than tariff reformers to gain them. We all know thut the victories won by the lat ter in IHOftand 1892 were worse than a dozen defeats for that particular cause; and what is true of those victories is true of nearly every previous gain of the kind in the past half century, and for the same reasons, which are obvious and more pertinent today than ever be fore. “Owing to the vital connection of the tariff with the public revenue, and of the latter with the money market and sjK'cnlation and business, it comes to pass that only in times of great prosper ity and speculative inflation does the tariff appear not only superfluous to a degree, but also disturbing to the money market* as well as a shelter to the pro tected interests in exacting the highest obtainable prices. Hence invariably we have an agitation for tariff reduction reaching up to the point of Incoming practically effective just as a speculative boom begins to culminate. So we have in due order, decade by decade, a tariff revision followed by a speculative col lapse which was in order in any event, but which has so often been closely associated with tariff reduction as pro foundly to impress the public mind with being a case of cause and effect. “This was the experience of 1857, when a tariff reduction to relieve an overflowing public treasury was closely followed by a panic It was so 30 yea. s ago, when a horizontal tariff reduction of about 10 per cent in 1872 (made by the friends of the tariff) was followed by the panic of 1873—though nobody seems to remember that a restoration of the tariff in 1875 had no effect whatever in restoring confidence and reviving in dustry. The little patter of revision in IHH3 was followed by a panic in IHHd, and lo years later we saw what every body now recalls. “The experience of 50 years shows the importance to tariff reform of timing it more happily than has heretofore been the case. No one of any study or ob servation, we suppose, connects the pan ics of IH7U or IMB4 with the tariff reduc tions of 1872 and 1883; and only extreme partisans of the tariff venture to relate the panics of 1857 arid 1893 to the tariff reduction of the former year and the promise of reduction of the latter year. But so many close associations of two particular developments impress a great many people, or render them easily sub ject to the plausible representations of the high tariff orator;and it is desirable, for the sake of straight popular think ing on tiie subject, that the numlier of these coincidences i>e not added to.
