Our Country, and Bow it Hag Been Built
No nation upon the face of the habitable
globe has during the short space of its ex
istence, made such rapid strides to wealth,
greatness and national importance as the
United States of America. Its nationality
embraces every variety of good and whole
some law; its educational advantages and
facilities approximate perfection ; its varied
internal improvement systems excel any
thiDg known in the history of nations ; its
mountains of inexhaustible hidden mineral
wealth : its illimitable fields of coal and
iron, and boundless forests of finest tim
bers, are beyond the powers of compre
hension in the calculation of their value
and worth. And for the development and
utilization of the foregoing business inter
ests, it is necessarily imptant for the organ
ization of corporate bodies, for tne concen
tration of capital -to prosecnte the great
work. It requires millions of wealth to
build a great nation. Extensive railroad
organizations are essential, for
without them the raw material

dreat manufacturing iron inteiests require
an accumulated capital of hundreds of
thousands of dollars, and the same is true of
all other business interests of importance.
An aggregation of capital is indispensably
necessary for the successful consumation of
all business enterprise, neiice our amest
statesmen thought it wisdom and economy
for the government to issue bonds and se
curities to solvent compauies tor me ex
prt ss d and uvowed pui po se of budditi!' 1
Hyht;ia of uitemai iinj)ix ements, wh ch
would enhance the vaue of real esUio, und
contribute to the general wealth and pros
perity of the nation, for without those great
nionied powers and organizations of wealth,
our great country would have remained par
tially in the backgrounds of ignorance and
superstition, and the commendations, eu
logies and applause so lavishly bestowed by
impartial judges would never have been
pronounced, and while no nation can ever
attain to its normal state of greatness and
perfection without the foregoing system of
organized companies, yet it is veritably
true that there are numbers of politici -ns
and newspaper editors who are making a
vigorous warfare upon railroads and other
corporate bodies, calling them niilroad
kings, bloated bondholders, monied rings
Ac, arraying the feelings of the poorer
classes against the wealthier classes of the
country. Newspaper editors and politicians
who thus excite and poison the public mind
against capitalists WT10 are the public beue
factors of the country, criminally retard
the progress of our nationid greatness, and
prejudice the minds of millious of innocent
people against their best interest. Such
training and teaching has a tendency to
generate a solid system of communism,
and engender the worst state of feelings
against the government, such as the nihilist
of Kussia entertain against their government.
To thus make a formidable international
foe against capitalists tends to destroy the
kindly fraternal feelings of the people nec
essary to conduce to the best interests and
happiness of the nation. Politicians, in
their blind zeal to gain party advantages,
assail the bondholders as if they were the
common enemy of the country. Railroad
companies are likewise maligned, and all
corporate bodies of wealth fall into the
same category, all of which brings about a
state of dissatisfaction which engenders
"strikes" and "tecret orders," which antag
onize! capital, and which throws men out
of employment and frequently into jail.
Taleut, enterprise and capital should not
be rewarded with infectives and calumny,
such is are applied to the best business

Oscar Bunkoed.
Oscar Wilde, the apostle of the
lily and the dado, has been bunkeed!
The details of the affair are few but
painful. He was picked up on Broad
way by pseudo Englishmen, who
professed themselves admirers of the
sunsflower and the stork, were apt in j
posing, and were of course old but 1
forgotten acquaintances in England.
They iugratiated themselves into
Oscar's favor, and so grew upon him
thut soon their companionship be-,
came a very symphony of delight to
him. At last they wheedled him in
to a brilliant and festive lull of
pleasure. He indulged in a
little game, purely esthetic
at first, and eventually
so wildly entrancing that he went in
deeper and deeper until ne nad losi
all his available money, and at last
drew a check upon his banker for
S 1,300, a part of the proceeds oi bis
lectures to lorn, lank maidens with
clinging gowns. He finally, in unu
esthetic language, tumbled to tne
little game, shot out of the gilded
halla hatless, and with his long nair
streaming to the winds and his long
coat-ti ils flying so horizontally that
two of his Enghsn friends declared
they could have played a game of
sevenup on them he made for his
banker to stop payment on the check.
But what excuse can be made for
Oscar, who has set himself up as an
oracle of instruction for the Ameri
can people? He found everything
wrong in this blarsted country as
soon as he arrived, and he at once
took us under his patronage, and in
private and in public lost no oppor
tunity in collecting our manifold
fa.nl t.H. H has shown the vouni?
woman how to dress, and walk, and
talk, and in the process has reduced
some of them to a condition not far
removed from lunacy. He has shown
maturer women how to decorate their
rooms with symphonies of color and
soulful arabesques of design, now
to set forth tneir tables so
that erue3ts may sup on the sight
of a lily, and fill their stomachs with
contemplation and other fodder as
unsubstantial as the east wind. He
! as taught men how to build houses,
and stores, and churches, and halls,
and how to paint them. He has cor
rected all our artistic notions and
adapted our canons to the bases of
the lily and the sunflower. He has
exposed the faults of the theatre, of
the opera, and of fashion. He has
corrected our poetry and our prose.
He has indicated the weak spots in
our form of government. He has
uhown up the Atlantic Ocean as a
fraud, Niagara as a mere plunge,ef I
KOtbciiTtairra'aijahtmg in that
harmony of outline which invests
elevations with a ravishingly esthetic
It is a little pathetic that this
apostle of the beautiful, who has set
himself up as the mentor of the
American people, and has sought to
shed the light of his theories and
cai.O' 3 upon tueir ignorance, erioulu
aims' If have been captured by the
bunko steerer, and to be seduced
from the paths where the lilies grow
and sunflowers blow, and only th
ravishingly beautiful spreads itself
out in constantlyshif ting symphonies
into the den of gilded allurements.
Of what use or yalue are all his
theoris of the good, the true, and
the beautiful if tuey caunot preserve
himtroin tuo temptations of the bun
ko man, who is neither, good, true,
nor beautiful? With all his know!
edge, Oscar hereafter should only
trust nimseif among the lorn, lank
maids with the clinging gowns, and
content himself with their admiras
tion and worship. They will not de
ceive him. Let him hug his mantle
piece and pose in rapt attitude, while
the medieva maidens hover about
him and contemplate the symphonic
sunflower. There is safety for him
with ttiem. While we sympathize
with him in the loss of his money,
we cannot but regard the chuckling
satisfaction of Teddy, the Kid, as he
relates to his companions how he
took in "the hesthetic cove, you
know, with something like a feeling
of personal revenge, as we recall the
manner in which the victim has held
Americans up as ignoramuses.
