I.KT THK PMII'IJ': IK IM..
There ellll exlala In Ihla country,
and aome of them tn high place,
men lo whom any eort of dncuunt
purporting to oonatltute a league of
natlona would .ppel for their un
questioning aanclloVi. Thra are tha
fool friend of the reel plan for
world peace. If their argument
have proved one thing a hove an
other, II Id' that they are willing lo
attach tbelr algnalure to a blank
aheet of paper and hand It over to
Mr. Wlleon lo fill out ga ha aaw fit.
Their brain have cAd to func
tion and Ihe 'president haa, their
power of attorney to do their think
ing for them. They would have no
heellatlon in abdicating tha power
of the aenata and In clothing the
preeldent with auprome conclusive
treaty-making powere. Thla child
like confidence la fascinating, but It
I not piaetloal. There Hiever haa
been but one man worthy of un
uueallotied confidence and Ihe men
f hla day nailed him lo Ihe croaa.
. Thla la a government by the peo
ple and not by Individual. The
cltlaene of America elected Wlleon
preeldent, but they did not delegate
lo him euper-conattlutlonal powere
and they resenf Ihe aaaumptlon of
the eema by him or any other man.
However aubaervlent aenatora or
congreaamen may be tot, the egotlat
in the white houee, however great
may bo their dealre to echo a placid
''yea" to every proposition he may
place .before them, the public will
Inalat that they perform their funo-p
tlona aa membera ot a deliberative
body, a body whoae aaaent I ,nc
aary (o validate the performance
of tha chief executive. They are
tha repreaentatlvea of the people,
and ae eueh It la their duty to In
terpret the' will of their conatltuenta
rather than to eubatltute therefor a
complacdnt endorsement of what
ever emanate from the while houae
In Waahlngton or Paria. It la thelra
to acquteace 'ln the will of the peo
ple, rather than the will of the pree
ldent. Aa for thla league of nation,
which haa been largely amended at
the Inetance of popular Inalatence
In the face of the fawning aycoph
ancy of the few, the people every
where are dleoiiaalpg It and their
verdict will be trie conclusive one.
When the new draft la prevented
they will be prepared to pea Judg
ment upon It promptly, and their
representatives in the aenate wtll do
well to abide by that decision. The
people will not trust Mr. Wilson or
any other man aa a plenipotentiary
in aurh a vital metier.

this particular morning Annla Har
gan belonged -fo the moneyed claea.
Had not bar mother put a whole

aa ahe reminded Annie to be sure
apd get a bone along with tha atew
meat, and be careful of the change T
In her beat l-year.old handwriting
and with much wetting of the pencil
Annie made out a list; Stew meal
and salt pork at the butcher's. Tea,
onlna and a can of oil at the
groceV'p Not that Annie couldn't re
member ihe Hem quit well with

Tnen ahe got the baby ready.
Carefully eht teed on iia bonnet,
stufred iu aausage-llke arma Into It

Hhe tuckee the oil ran bralde the

when iiuaily ifady fur the outing,
made avi fine an appearance that
Annie had mleglvings a to her own

Annie climbed on a chair, stared
Into her mother' bedroom mirror
and regarded her reflection with dis
appointment. Hhe aaw a round little
face with big. eager, round eye.
Annie thought her rye would be
nicer If they were sky blue, like
Kertha Slmonda' doll'; or aparkllng
black, like the buttony orb of Koel
Itothborg. Annie' were not definite
enough. In aome light they looked
brown; In olhera, gray. Often they
were almost, blue and much prettier
than llertha'a doll's. Hut Annie didn't
like them much. '
tier nair wan a source or wiai.i
fulneaa, too. It never looked smoutrW
like Hertha'a. Nor ' did It make a
thick, long braid like Kdith Itomer'e
that the bovs in the street nulled
naughtily tometlmea. It waa brown
and alwuyr. trying to work, into little
latiririlti diid wivm that hsr mother
encouraged Into curia bv brusNtnij
them over her finger when she had
time. Which Annie hated. Hhe wlahed
her hair was bobbed off altogether,
like eoqie of the girls In echool who
lived In nice neighborhood west of
Third avenue 1
Home Cay. If ahe could ever save
un the money, ytnnle platted t go
over to the man on Second avenad
li lh miners met before me. In pursuance of my request. The.represen
- tallvca of the miners Included aa their head and spokesman John
Mltrhell. who kept bla temper admirably and showed to much advantage,
i he repreaentatlvea of the operators, on Ihe contrary, came down In a moat
inaoienii rrain or rnina, reiuaeo 10 lai ei arimraiion r
other accommodation of any kind, and used language
that was Insulting to tha miners and offensive to me.
They-were curiously Ignorant of the popular temper;
and when they went away from the Interview they, with
mur'h pride, gave their own account of it lo the papers,
exulting In the fart that they had "turned down ' both
the miners and tha preeldent.
I refuaed to accept the rebuff, however, and continued
Ihe effort to get an agreement between the operatore
ami the mlnera. I was anxious to get thla agreement,
be rus u would prevent the neceaalty of taking the ex
tremely drastic action I meditated, and which Is herein
after deacribed.
Fortunately, thla time we were aucresaful. Yet w
were,' on the verge of failure, because of self-willed
C 'iu -Fl "uallnacy on ine part or tne operaiora, inis ooannacy
' j ajT.TtV waa utterly silly from their own aaanrtpolnl, and well-
nigh criminal from the atandpqlnl of the people at large. The mlnera pro
posed lhal I should name Ihe commission, and that If I put on a represen
tative of Ihe employing class I should ulao put on a labor union" man. The
operators positively ilecllneil to accept the suggestion. They Instated upon
my naming a eomuilaalon of only five rnen. and specified the qualifications
so a to exclude thoee whom It had'leaked out I was thinking of appointing,
Including ex-l'realdenl Cleveland. They made Ihe condition that I waa to
appoint one officer of the engineer corps of fhe army or navy, one man
xa, tl It experience of mining, one "man of prominence." "eminent aa a
sociologist," Ane federal Judge of the eastern district of I'ennaylvania. and
one mining engineer.
They positively refused to have me appoint any representative or lanor,
or to put on an extra man. I waa desirous of pulling on the extra man,
because Mitchell and the other leader of ihe m ner tyd urged me to p
nolnl aome hlah Cathollo ecclealaallc. Mosi of Ihe miner were Catholics,
end Mitchell and the leaders were very unxloua lo secure peaoeful acquies
cence by the miners In any decision rendered, and they felt that their hande
would b strengthened If aurh an aooo ntment were made I ney also, ntiue
properly Insisted that there should be one representative of labor on the
commlasilnn, a all tlun othere represented the propertied claeses. The oper
ators, however, ahcolutely refueed to acquiesce In the appointment of any
repreaentatlve of labor, and alao announced fhal they would refuae to ac
cept sixth man on the commleaion, although they spoke much leaa de
oldedly on thla point.' Tha labor men Jeft everything In my handa.
The final conference with the repreeentallves or ine operaiora iook piacr
In my rooms on Ihe evening of October 16 Hour after hour went hy while
I endeavored to make the ooeratora through their representatives aee that
the country would not tolerate their Insisting upon such conditions; but in
vain. The two repreaentatlvee of the operators were lumen Bacon ana
George W. Perkins. They were entirely reasonable. Hut the operator
themaelvee were entirely unreaaonable. They had worked themaelve Into
a fram of mind where! they were prepared lo sacrifice everything end c
civil war tn the country rather lhan back down nnd acquiesce In the ap
pointment of a repreaentatlve of labor. It looked aa tl a aeanioca were
Inevitable
Then, suddenly, after about two hour argument. It nawneo on me mai
they were not objecting to the thing, hut to the name. I found that tney
did noi mind my appointing any man, whether he waa a labor man or not.
o long aa he u not appointed aa a labor man, or ae a repreeenutive of
labor; Ihey did not object to my exerclelng ny latitude I choe In the ap
pointments ao long aa they were made under tne neuainge mey naa givrn.
I shall never forget the mixture of tellef and amusement 1 fell when I
thoroughly graaped Ihe fart that while they would heroically submit tb
anarchy rather than hav Tweedledum, yet If J would call II Tweenieaee
Ihey would accept It with rapture; II gave me fi Illuminating glimpse Into
one corner of Ihe mighty brains of these "caplalna of Industry." In order
to carry Ihe great and vital point and aecura agreement by both parllea all
that waa necessary for me to do waa to commit a technical and nominal
abaurdlly with a solemn face. This I gladly did I announced at once that
I Kcneptnd the term laid down. With thla underetandlng. I appointed the
lartior man I had all along had In view, K.- K. Clerk, the head of the Itrlth-
eThood or Hallway i;nnnuciora, caning nno an -uii.i-..i.. -teVin
which I doubt whether he had ever previously heard. He waa a rlret
class man. whom I afterward put an the Interstate jjommerce commieelon,
I added lo the arbitration commission, jon my own authority, a sixth mem
ber, In the person of Bishop Hpaldlnl a Catholic blahop of Peoria, 111 . one
of the very be.t men to be found In the entire country. The man whom
the operatore had expected me to appoint as the eoelologlat waa Carroll
Wright -who really waa an eminent oclologll. I put him on aa recorder
of the commission, and added him aa a eeventh member ak soon an the
coriimUslon got fairly alarted. In publishing the llat of the commissioner.
when 1 came to Clark e appointment. I aaaea: r a, iuciii..-i".
preeldent aa.umln that for the purpoae of uch a commlaalon. ihe term
eoclologtat means a man who has. thought -ad .anudradl deeply on awulal
question and haa practically applied h knawieoge.
The relief of the whole country waa eo great that tha audden appear
ance of the head of the Brotherhood of itallway Conductor as an eminent
eoclologtat merely furntebed material fhr puaatd comment on the part of
the press. It waa a moet admirable commieelon. It did a noteworthy work
add Its report la a) monument In the hletory of the relations of labor and
capital In thla country. The strike, by Ihe wy, brought me Into contact
with more than ohe man who was afterward a valued friend and fellow
worker. On the auggetlon of Carroll Wright I appointed as assistant re
cordcra to thn commlaalon Charlea P. Nelll. whom I trZTMA'ZT
commlaaloner. to .ucceed Wright hlmeelf. and Edward A Moeeley. Y . like
R.rre waa the center of th trlke; and the man In W-lkei-Barr who
helped me moat waa Father Curran; I grew lo know and trust and believe
In him, and throughout my term in office, and afterward, he waa not
only my stanch friend, but one of the men by whose advice and counsel l
profited moet in matter affecting the welfaraof th miner, and their
I waa greatly relieved at the reaull. for more than one reason. Of course
first and foremost, my concern was to avert a frightful calamity to the
United Hlalea. In the next place 1 waa anxtou to ve th great coal opera
tor and all of the claea ot big propertied men of which they wer niern
bnr. from th dreadful punWhment which their own folly would I have

The "? anthracite etrlke of 111 left an Indelible lmpr...lon upon the
people of the Cnlled Htate. It showed clearly to all wise
men that the labor problem In thla country had entered upon a new phaae.
Industry had grown, (ireat financial corporation, doing a nation-wide
and even a world-wide bu.lne... had taken the pl.c of the amall.i con
cerns of atl earlier time. Th old familiar, Intimate relation, between em
ployer andemploy. were p.ealng. A ! tlona be,or , ,h. bn. had
known vry man In hie ahop; he called hia men Hill Tom. Dick , . Job n . he
Inquired after their wlv and b.bl... he .w.pped Jokai . and i .torle. and
perhapa a bit of tobacco with them. In the sml esUbll.hm.nt there had
been a friendly human rlllon.hlp between employer and employ.
There waa no aurh relation between the great railway magnate-, who
controlled tha anthracite Induetry, and the 150,-300 men who worked In
their mines, or the half million women and children who were dependent
upon these miner, for Iheir dally bread. Very few of the. mine worker,
had ever seen, for Inst .nc. th preeldent of the Reading railroad. Had
they seen him many of them could not have spoken to him. for ten of
thousands of the mine worker were recent immigrant who did not under
eland the language which he epoke and who spoke a language Which he
could not understand. ,
Again a few generations ago an American workman could have eaved
money, gone weat and taken up a homeete.d. Now the fra. land were
gone In earlier day a man who beran with pick and shovel might have
come to own a mine That outlet too was now closed, aa regards the Im
mune, majority, and few. If any of the 1.0.00. mine "I"
aspire lo enter the small circle of men who held In their grasp the great
anthracite industry. The majority of the men who earned wage. In Ihe
coal industry. If they wlahed to progreae at all. were compelled o progres
not by ces-lng to he wage-earnera. but by Improving the condition, under
which all the wttgeearner In all the Industrie of the country -lived and
worked aa well, of courae. as Improving their own Individual efficiency.
