Restruinliii; Order Token Acuinst Hit Striking Machinists by a Chicago Firm Action Commented I'ioii ljr Leaders on Koth Siilesof Controversy. For the first time in Chicago since the famous Debs injunction during the great strike of the -American Railway 1'nioii a similar writ was issued Friday by a fed eral judge, preventing the strikeis from interfering with the operation of busi ness. Judge Kohl-ant. sitting in the I uitod States District Court, issued an injunc tion against the strikers who are carry ing ou the war against certain Chicago mnihine manufacturers. The writ was issued at the nsptest of W. .1. Calhoun, of the firm of P.un. Calhoun ,: Glcminu, representing the Alii Chalmers Com pany. This writ is to remain effective "ntil the court has opportunity to decide whether it .should be made permanent. Judge Kohlsaat will set a date for the hearing of arguments on this point. The injunction is directed against the Na tional Association of I inn workers, the Iron Molders of North America, the Pattern-Maker-." Asso.iatinn and the various officers and nicmbeis of those organiza tions. The motion for an injunction as pre sented by Calhoun requestel that the striking molders anil machinists be en joined from "a continuous and persistent picketing of the shops and plant of the Allis-Chahners Company, accompanied by the incidental 'slugging of nonunion em ployes and otherwise interfering with the operation of the company's plant." "This is the first time in Chicago that the federal courts have been appealed to since the his Debs strike," said V. J. Chalmers. "The reason we appealed to, Judge KohUaat is lieeause we cannot get protection in justice ,onrts. Politics seems to be iutrciiihed lichin 1 jiistic-j court cases, and the assaulting or intimi dation of strikers are not taken care of as they should be, in fact they are pni tectvd. Yesterday five mi i: were beaten at tit? Allis-Chalmers plant. Hardly a day passes that men are not knocked down and beaten up there. In view of these facts, we could see no other thing to do but to appeal to the court of high est jurisdiction in the city." "I am not surprised at the action of the employers in seeking the assistance of the courts." said Business Agent Ire land of the machinists. "They have been threatening it for a long time. but. in my estimation, the plea for an injunction is a confession of weakness on their part. The courts "have been closed to us dur ing the importation of men here because we had not enough money to pay an at torney to request an injunction restrain--ing the bringing in of men. and thus test ing the validity of the law. We'll hae to do the best we can to continue ths fight if the court rules against picketing." INVITATION SENT ALL NATIONS. President's 1'roctamution Announcing Louisiana Purchase Kxposit'on.

The Xsitioual Economist, the national Drgan of high protection, which has re cently beeu demanding the defeat of Speaker Henderson for re-election for the reason that he bus refused to agree not to reappoint Congressman Babcock of Wisconsin on the Ways aud Means Committee, contains the following from George I. Rcls, superintendent of the Illinois Steel Company: "I believe In a tariff whether we need it or not. Even if it does no good, what 'larni does It ilu'r Xo profit has been nude ou the iron and steel goods that save lieeu sold abroad. They have beeu sold at cost to get rid of a surplus and Jo win a foothold in the foreign mar ket. England had the trade all to her--elf aud she charged higher profits than we did here. Now she has been obliged (o sell below cost to keep her market. She cannot stand the pace. Wheu cus tomers abroad learn to like our goods, they will buy them at fair prices, and we can sell at a profit. We can make Iron aud steel products cheaper than they can. But I believe in a tariff Just the same. It insures us a home mar set under all conditions. If the manu facturers cannot sell their goods, the workmen suffer. Trusts give better wages and cheaper goods. No one is disappointed but the politicians, and they want votes." Mr. Reis says that American steel makers can manufacture steel goods :heaper than the foreigners. He also admits the American-made steel has been sold abroad cheaper thau at home. Yet he favors the continuance ot the prohibitory tariff on steel. Why does he favor it? Because It "insures us a home market in ail conditions." And of what good is tills to the steel manufacturer? He Is able to charge more at home than abroad because the tariff prevents the corrective of impor tation the manufacturer is able to col let from American consumers the 'JO to 80 per cent of the steel tariff plus tie cost of his goods and a fair profit. One almost loses patience when it is thus boldly asserted that such au organization as the United States Steel corporation, with its billion dollars ot inflated capital, on which dividends are regularly paid, has a right to penalize the people of this country because they live ou this side of the water rather than the other. It would seem as If, granting as Mr. Reis says, that the American steelmaker can manufacture more cheaply than his foreign competi tor, that our people, living closer to the cheapest source of production, should get steel goods cheaper than those who live 3,000 miles away. What would be thought If an organization of farm ;rs. favored by law In some way, should arise, and it should become the accept ed thing to charge the people In the growing state ?1 per bushel for corn, while the same Identical corn was sold in London for 50 cents? Would It not be denounced as au unspeakable out rage, aud would not there be an imme diate demand for the repeal of the leg islation which permitted and fostered such a condition? Clay. Morrill, Blaine, even McKinley, never justified the continuance of a protective tariff when it should appear that an industry In America was able to produce more cheaply than any for eign rival. At first it was said pro tection was merely to promote Infant Industries to give them a chance to get started; then It was said that only such amount of duty was justifiable as would equalize the difference between the American and foreign wages the. American manufacturer not being able to produce as cheaply as the for eigner unless he paid lower wages; now we have admission that the In dustries are not infant and that the cost of production is less in America, and yet there is a defiant demand to continue a prohibitory tariff on the express'ground that the American con sumer shall be fleeced. It is not con tended that the additional price charged In America goes to the workingmen In the form of higher wages. It Is ad mitted that It goes to the manufac turer or else to the foreigner who is able to buy things below cosL We used to be told that the foreigner paid the tariff tax; Mr. Reis practically ad mits that, as to steel, the extra price collected In this country Is given to the foreign buyer. We pay the tariff for hiin. It Is not conceivable that this latest expression of protection rapacity will find favor with the American peo pleeven with the strictest of the old school protectionists, who talked Amer ica for the Americans. Hanna and Morcan. Senator Hanna says he is not trying to settle the steel strike. It is the Sena tor's duty to try, all the same. Much Is expected of him, and as a matter of good faith he should put his shoulder to the wheel. What If Mr. J. Pierpont Morgan does tell him to keep out that his Interference is not required? Can Mr. Hanna afford to be obedient to Mr. Morgan merely because he Is a billion aire, or something of that sort? Can the leading candidate for the Republi can nomination for President of the United States the man who has only to say the word and all other candi dates will subside afford to "lay down" to a man who has "nothing but money?" Mr. Morgan probably doesn't care if there Is a general strike. It will not interfere with his personal comfort for a minute. He is not a politician in the sense of being a candidate for otlice. He merely wants the power of wealth. To be the richest man in the United States, controlling products and trans portation and handling many millions of money and directing the material destinies of millons of men. would no doubt be a prouder position to him thau that of Chief Executive of the greatest republic of all time. If this were a mon archy It might be different, but it Is even possible that Mr. Morgan would rather be a financial aud railroad mag nate than a King or an Emperor. It would probably not be putting too flue a point on the subject to say that he has more real, practical power to-day thau either Edward VII. or William 1 1.; and It Is due to him to say also that he prob ably has more brains, speaking gener ally and specifically, thau both of these monarchy together. Mr. Morgan no doubt thinks a great strike now to be the best thing for his ultimate pix-poses. There was a time, very recently, when the differences be tween the strikers and the capitalists seemed on the point of adjustment; but when the worklngtuen's representatives nsked for a modification of the terms of settlement Mr. Morgan peremptorily declined to treat further, uud now an army of the employed have been or dered out. The great financier knew this would In all probability be the re sult. His Idea was that it would be better for him and the interests he rep resented to go into the battle Tor all It was worth, confident that capital wouk win in the end. and that the winning would be worth more than years of patched-up peace. He may have ex pected a hard and protracted struggle, but was serene in the belief that the victory for capital would be signal, and the working people finally so demoral ized, humiliated and poverty-stricken that thay would not have the heart to make another fight (luring the remain der of Mr. Morgan'c life. Of course, the distinguished financier may be mistaken about this; but he would not be as rich a man as he Is, and the undisputed bead of so many en terprises that he is, If he were not a long-headed man. capable of looking into the future with approximate accu racy, and willing to take a considerable risk for a tremendous final winning. He Is for "business." He cares for politics and government only as they can be of service to the mighty enterprises In which he Is engaged. When he has use for them, especially If matters should come to the crisis of calling out troops, he will let Mr. Hanna know. Can the distinguished Ohio Senator afford to be placed In this position? He Is also a business man. but the world knows more of him as a politician and a commanding factor In the government of the United States as it is now consti tuted. He regards the rains of heaven, abundant crops, activity In manufac turing, prosperity In business and the steady and certain employment of the working masses at fair compensation as the essential Incentives to victory for the party to which he belongs. In the campaigns which he has so mas terfully conducted the avoidance ot strikes has been looked upon as a ne cessity. When the settlement of an other former great strike in the teeth of a political campaign was ascribed to Mr. Hanna be did not deny that be was Instrumental. Indeed. It was one of the best achievements of his political career. There is greater reason for Mr. Han na interfering now. because this is a greater strike. Is Mr. Hanna satisfied to quit. because Mr. Morgan tells him to? Who's running things, anyhow? Cincinnati Enquirer. Lookins to 1034. United States Senator George D. Vest, of Missouri, that sturdy and ster ling champion of Democracy, has. In an interview, declared that in 1904, thf national platform would be: First A declaration for a graduated iu'eome tax. Second Au unrelenting opposition te trusts. Third A declaration against im perialism and the colonial system. "It would be suicidal," says the Sen ator, "to thrust the silver issue forward again." These planks, as described by Sen ator Vest, are interesting not only be cause of their contents,' but because ot the order In which they are placed. The income tax he places first, and It Is tc be assumed that he regards It as first In importance. Notwithstanding ths court decision that the income tax la unconstitutional. Democrats generalij believe that it is good law and equity j able, just and right to make the men wno possess tne weaitn or tne country pay their just proportion of taxation! whether their property Is In the form of real estate or securities. No one doubts tbat'oppositlon to tht trusts and to the imperialistic program of the Republican party will be two ot the main points on which the National Democracy will attack the party of plu tocracy and commercialism in the cam paign of 1904. These evils have grown to such an enormous extent and are- so. heartily condemned by the masses oi the people of this country that the duty of the Democracy to attempt thelt eradication is too plain to be mistaken. The truth of the remark of Senatoi Vest regarding the unwisdom of again putting forward the silver issue de pends altogether upon the time of It application. The Times has more thau once remarked that if a Democratic Na tional Convention were to be held to morrow a declaration for the free coin age of silver would probably find nt place in the platform. To-day the supply of gold is sufficient to meet the demand of business and so long as this is sc there will be no real demand for tba larger coinage of silver. But it is going too far to say that tin issue ot free silver is dead forever. Fot the time may come when the gold sup ply will become contracted and acquire an abnormal jalue and then there will be a renewed demand for legislation bringing a larger proportion of sllvei into circulation. Buffalo Times. Democratic Unity KuentiaU Democrats iu every State in the Union can unite In defense of the broad principles of Democracy. Men may die and candidates may be defeated and discredited, but the principles of tha party can never die or be discredited. When Democrats show a disposition to Ignore men and stand by principles, then there are symptoms ot an awaken ing of the people which will carry all before It when questions of public pol icy are again on trial at the polls.

Confirm all the Kasson" agree ments and we shall still have gigantic combinations paying dividends on hun dreds of millions of fiction because the tariff enables them to exact oppressive jiriees from domestic consumers. Per haps It Is because the Kasson treaties do not meuace the big combines that those agreements find favor In certain Influential quarters. Washington Tost Not Dependent on Uabcock. Mr. Babcock is shrewd to forga to the front, but the demand for tariff revision and reform Is so wide spread that it would be a feature of tha times if Mr. Babcock were not alive.
