Tho Now York millionaires, not con tent with racing nt death speed in au tomobiles, arc now engnged In making air ship fights over tho metropolis. Not all tho fools aro poor popple. Secretary Shaw Is a resourceful man nnd ho hns,,dovlscd nil klndB of plans to prevent a panic, but the worst fen turo of It nil Is that It has ngaln brought forth a suggestion of tho popu list wnrohoiiso plan. Had tho members of congress dono at tho last sosslon what thoy nro now promising to do at tho noxt tho chance of re-election might bo brighter for aoino of thorn nnd tho prlco of coal might be a shade lower. A gontlomnn by tho nntno of Swal low married a young lndy by the name of Worm tho other day. It happened In Kansas. The Milwaukee Sentinel han startod tho pnragrnphooutlon of this couple by saying: "Mr. Swallow must have been an early bird." Next. Wlillo Sonntor Fornkor was dofond lng tho trusts nt Akron, Ohio, Snturdny night, all tho prisoners In tho county Jail escaped and took to tho woods. By this time thoy have probnbly In corporated under tho laws of Now Jersey, and are snfo from Interfer ence. It would tnko nowspapora to oxpress tho thoughts of peoplo regarding sldo walks. Wlillo thoy aro In favor of them thoro Booms to oxlst a force necessary to tholr construction, nnd hytheway this Is tho absolute nocos sary construction which must bo plnccd thoro. "Sidewalks, or no go" Is tho U 8.. motto. President ltoosovolt uttored a vory posltlvo and tnio stutoment when ho said to theconl operators and minors Friday. Tho rvll possibilities (of a coal famine) nro bo fnrlroachlng, so appalling, Ant It seems to mo that you would" not only bo Justi fied In Blukiut hut should bo required to sink for Tho tlmd being any tenacity as to your respective claims In the mntter nt Issue between you." THE COAL 8ITUATI0N. Sunday's Dallas News says: While President ltoosovolt must be credited with the host Intentions In his offorts to end the coal strlko, and wlillo the falluro to end the critical and alarming Bltuntlon I goner ully regrotted, ho and others -ho con sldorod tho ovldonco presented must recognize tho fact that tho tro-iblo Is traccablo at last to tho weakness nnd failure of tho political powors th.-t bo. If President Mitchell nnd his llouten- nuts aro right In tholr contention that the strlkorB aro tho victims of an in entlnto coal trust, thon why has not tho law against such monopoly beon enforced? If on the other hand the United Mine Workors' Association Is a combination to control the labor market, nnd ns such falls cloaily with In tho definition of a trust, why has tho law not been nppled by those charged with the osecution of the snmo? President Itoosevolt haB opn' cd up a quostlon that comes dlretly home to him. The law has not bun enforced. If It had been applied wit! a firm hand at the proper time tho pub lic would not havo been called upon to shiver nnd pay tho penalty. Tho demand for "higher wages and for hotter environments" presented by President Mitchell is n demand that appeals to popular sympathy and probably a demand that the coal ba rons should bo willing to grant, even If some of the Increase should como out of tholr own pockets and not all of It out of the pocket of the consum er, ns usual; but tho domand present' cd by tho strlkorB for nn Increase of wages Is not bo sorlous ns a domand presented by ropreeontatlves of the other side. If it In truo as charged, that a rolgn of terror exists In the anthracite ro- glon Iod by tho men whom Prosldont Mitchell represents; If free men who nre ready to work In the mines are In Umldatod, beaten and murdered, or their families terrorized In their nb sence; If the authorities are resisted and the laws defied, then the very first thing to be done Is to put down the outlawry and anarchy at whatever rost. While an Increase of wages for the strikers U something for which wo might all feel disposed to stand, a ilo mnnd for moro wagos is not to. bo classified with a demand for civil or dor. Truly, "the government Is n con-. temptlblo falluro If It cannot protect the lives of tho peoplo by only compro mising with tho violators of law and tho Instlgntors of vlolonco and crime." i'resiuont Itoosevolt Is nlmost within sight of the nlleged battle ground. If outlawry 1b rampant there ho must know about It. ltogardless of tho special Interest of this sldo of that sldo, pence nnd ordor should bo ro stored nnd maintained. After that Is dono, If this Is renlly n land of law and order nnd not nioroly a land of politics nnd nnnrchy, tho Fodoral authorities ns well as tho Btato authorities should proceed to apply unsparingly tho acts of congress nnd tho stnto lawB against all tho combinations In restraint of trndo. If this course were courage ously pursued neither President Mitch ell nor President Bnor would have within tholr powor tho shivering mil Ions who must pay tho penalties and do tho suffering besides.
