,.-When a city is regarded by its peo
ple as a sreat family whose individual
members are interested in each other's
welfare, and when they unite to secure
the greatest comfort and health and
seek to promote the public: good, an al
most ideal state is reached. Such, we
take it, is the purpose which the con
vention of the League of American
Municipalities at Syracuse, X. Y., seeks
to foster. This, too, is a leading
Thought of (he paper on "The Municipal
Ownership of Public Serviifc* indus
tries" by .Mayor Pierce, of Marshall
town, the full text of which appeared
Wednesday. It is a paper based upon
practical, common sense views. The
showing is certainly one Which should
gratiiy every citizcn of this municipal
ity. The comparison with eight other
Iowa cities is very rlattering to Jlar
shalltown, which has a fine system of
water works, for the maintenance of
which no tax is levied, a street lighting
plant with 109 arc lights of 1,200 candle
power, the expense of which is paid out
of the general fund, while other places
levy a special tax tor it. The city also
has seven and one-half miles of brick
pavement, sixteen and one-half
miles of sanitary'.. sewers, over
twenty-three miles of water mains
and a free public library. It
has a. smaller public debt than any
other city of its class in Iowa, the total
being $71,000. It has a smaller tax
levy than any of the eight cities with
•which it is compared a.nd in other re
spects it makes a superb showing.
There may be and is some question
as to how far general utilities should
be owned and controlled by the public,
but so far as Marslialltown's experience
goes, it can endorse the public owner

The riots of coal miners in and about
Springfield, 111.. thai have resulted, in
many fatalities and so much expense,
to the stata raise again the cju •-ti
compulsory arbitration', of labor dis
putes. In this case the state lias beei
compelled to keep trfiops upon the
grounds for months at a time to pre
ser\e order and'protect the community,
only to be rewarded by such outbreaks
of violence as was witnessed last. Sun
day, when the'troops were withdrawn.
It is this everlasting bother and expense
to the state that leads men to suggest
that perhaps after all the state would be
jusitied in stepping in at first and
through some such agency as an arbi
tration board adjust equitably the dif
ferences between employer and em
ployed so as to avoid the cost of a pro
tracted riot.
In France such a function lias been
exercised by the government for a great
many years. The Prud'hommes are a
class of tribunals established by law in
many of the important citifs of France
and Belgium for the speedy arid inex
pensive settlement of certain -specified
industrial disputes. They are the out
growth of the tryde guilds. These con«
sells, as the tribunals are sometimes
called, are established directly under
the authority of the min[ster of com
merce, upon the request of The chamber
of commerce, endorsed by the munici
pal council of the city where the pro
posed conseil is to be located. The offi
cers of the conseil are appointed by the
chief of state and the other members
are elected by the community, half from
the employers and half from the em
ployed. These latter members, the
prud'hommes, hold office for six years
and serve without pay.
The parties to a dispute can by com
mon consent refer the dispute to the
conseil for settlement but generally
cases are brought before it on corn
plalnt of one or the other party. Each
conseil being divided into two chambers,
called the private bureau and) the gen
eral bureau, the case first appears be
fore the former, composed of two rnem
ber# only, before which the proceedings
are quite informal. The sole duty of this
bureau is to onciliate, If possible, the
disputants and make a settlement with
out a formul trial. Falling In this, the
case is taken before the general bureau,
where on attempt is again made to set
lie the trouble by agreement and this
again.falling, the case is tried and
judgment given. The relative impor
tance of these two bureaus is seen in th«
reports of cases settled. In 1878 the
number of cases brought before the
conseils was 35,046. Of these 18,415 were
settled. In private, 9,076 in the conseils
and formal judgment rendered' In 7,555.
It is interesting to note, too, that of the
cases during that year the causes of
dispute in 21,36S were relative to wages,
4,733 to dismissals and 1,795 to matters
affecting apprentices. •. .':
The only other country in which arbi
tration and conciliation has been em
ployed to any considerable extent is
England, though the forms and meth
ods used differ materially from the,
French and Belgian. In 1824 all the va
rious acts concerning labor troubles
were consolidated and replaced by a
new one. This act was modeled after
the French law establishing the conseils
des prud'hommes, but adapted to the
different character of English industry
and institutions. Provision was made
for compulsory submission of disputes
in certain specified cases upon com
plaint of an interested party and the
awards could be enforced by law, but it
was specially provided that no author
ity was given to arbitration boards to
establish a rate of wages that was not
reeablo to both employer and em
ployed. Though this act is still in force
in England, it has rarely, if ever, been
used. Various forms of voluntary ar
bitration boards have arisen and seem
to fulfill all requirements.
Thus it is seen that in these old coun
tries, where monarchical Institutions
are still deeply rooted, this personal in
terest of the state in all labor troubles
is recognized and as a means of self
protection the government undertakes
to arbitrate labor disputes. In this
country, under a government and insti
tutions far more democratic in form,
the subject has been often discussed,
but little or nothing done. The nearest
approach to an arbitration bureau is
our interstate commerce commission,
which virtually stands as an arbiter be
tween the people- and the country's
great railway corporations.
As a general proposition the less a
government has to do with men's pri
vate affairs the better it is for both the
man and the government, but often cir
cumstances alter cases. Ten years ago
we never dreamed that we would en
gage in a foreign war to free a foreign
people, but today we have done so and
few of us are sorry for it. The Cuban
disturbance became intolerable and in
self-protection this nation was com
pelled to break over all precedent and
sacrifice all its traditions. Likewise
with the local branches of government.
If the state must suffer every time em
ployers and employed disagree men can
not be blamed for thinking that the
state ought to interfere earlier in the
trouble when the greatest harm to itself
and its citizens could be averted.
Again society is constantly changing.
Men are living today in an industrial
organization which places them every
one dependent upon another. One set
of men make our hats, another our
shoes,, .while another set of men, them
selvessub-divided into thousands of
branches, are engaged in the production
of our food. Man can no longer live nor
labor except bv the grace of his fellows.
We are living in a vast co-operative so
ciety. wherein the rewards for Individ
ual effort still remain, as they must do
in any well-organized society, but act
ual individual effort is no longer possi
hie. The men who help are therefore
•ntitled to consideration as well as
those who undertake. An industry is
established, hundreds of men take up an
abode with their families around the
seat of the enterprise. They commence
to build homes, while other avenues of
employment are similarly taken up by
other men and therefore closed to them.
The helpless position they are thus
forced to .place themselves in entitles
them to more of a consideration than
that of a
chattel upon the labor
But how far the state should go .in
thus exercising a paternal supervision
over the relations of its children is a
difficult question. It is bound to pre
serve older and protect property. If
this can be done more certainly and
with less expense to the state by an ar
bitration board few of us would object
to such an institution. Tt might not be
politically correct, its workings might
overreach the true functions of govern
ment, but it would be economically cor
rect and practically a success. It is
hard to decide whether we want arbi
tration bureaus or not. We might try
the use of voluntary boards and bring
to bear such a powerful public opinion
upon all labor disputants that the ar-
angement would be given all the vnlid
Sty of law.
One of the greatest events of the
closing- days of the present month will
be the arrival of Admiral Dewey in
New York and the magnificent welcome
he will receive. It is true that puhlic
interest in his great achievement has
somewhat abated, as the inevitable re
sult of the lapse of time, but he will
have no reason to regret the lack of
warmth in his greeting. He will ar
rive at New York from Gibralter on
Thursday, Sept. 28. The ceremonies of
his reception in that city will occupy
Friday and Saturday, Sept. 29 and 30.
The program as further outlined will be
as follows: On Sunday evening, Octo
ber 1, the special train from Washing
ton conveying the reception committee
will reach New York and the party will
spend Sunday night there. The special
train will start from New York on its
gtmthtg Tim&-%qmhlfot^
return trip on Monday, with Admiral
Pewejr and the detachment of Bailors
from the Olympia on board, so as to
arrive at the Pennsylvania depot In
Washington between 7 and 8 o'clock on
Monday evening October, 2.
As the train pulls into the Pennsyl
vania depot in Washington, the roar of
artillery will signal the arrival of the
distinguished guest, and Pennslyvanla
avenue will burst Into a blaze of light
from the capitol to the treasury depart
ment. As at present planned, the state,
war and navy buildings, the peace
monument, the Hancock statue, the
fountain at the corner of ninth street,
the reservation at the corner of Thir
teenth street, and the dome of the capi
tol will be outlined with fairy lamps.
Pennsylvania avenue itself will appear
as a long arch of parti-colored fires, red
fire being burned at 200 places along the
route, while 12,000 batteries will throw
streams of trl-colored stars in such a
way as to form arches of fire.
As Admiral Dewey emerges' from the
Pennsylvania depot at Sixth street, es
corted by the reception committee, he
will enter his carriage and take his
place at the head of the parade. The
Olympia's men, headed by the United
States marine band, will take position
immediately behind him and the proces
sion will start westward up Pennsyl
vania avenue to tlie treasury building.
Here the admiral will leave his car
riage, and take his position on the re
viewing stand, past which the proces
sion will file. Besides the military and
naval organizations of the District of
Columbia, the militia from a number of
the surrounding states will be in line,
and there will be a magnificent show
ing made by the secret societies, and
other local organizations. The illumi
nation of the avenue will last for the
the two hours that the parade is esti
mated to take in passing the reviewing
stand. General Miles will be the grand
marshal of the parade.
Next day, Tuesday, October 3, the
magnificent sword of honor voted by
ongress will be presented to Admiral
Dewey by Secretary Long of the navy
department. The presentation will take
place at the east front of the capitol,
late in the afternoon, upon a stand to
be erected extending out from the east
steps. Tills stand will purposely be
small, accomodating no more than 200
members of Admiral Dewey's party
and the invited guests. President Mc
Kinley will sit beside the hero of Ma
nila upon the stand, while the cabinet
officials and other distinguished per
sons will occupy piaces about him.
The sword of honor to be presented
to Admiral Dewey was voted by con
gress last summer, and has been made
at a cost of $10,000 by Tiffany of New
York. With the exception of the steel
blade, and the body of the scabbard,
the material used is twenty-two caret
gold. On the pommel is carved the
word "Olympia," with the sign of tl#
zodiac for December, the lucky month
which Dewey was born. Around
these is a wreath of oak leaves. Below
this is the coat of arms of the United
States, and of Dewey's native state,
Vermont, with its state motto, "Free
dom and Unity." The guard is beauti
fully wrought in the shape of an eagle
with outspread wings. On the front of
the scabbard are the initials "G. D,"
and under theni "U. S. N." On the
blade of the sword is engraved the in
scrlpition: "The Gift of the Nation to
Rear Admiral George Dewey, L". S. N„
in Memory of the Victory at Manila
Bay, May 1. 18U8."
As time passes the plea that we'should

with the democratic party. The Tele

to this course today does not place

the firing will have entirely ceased.

have its hands full defending its posi

without worrying about the party fealty
of such papers as the Chicago Chroni

In common with other preachers this
scribe has been taking a religious vaca
tion. In this column, very* little has
been said on religious subjects during
the heated term. But now, brethren,
the approaching cooler days and even
ings will make such matters more to our
taste and interest. The texts for this
article will be from the newspapers, the
subject, "Special Providences." Before
the writer la the following from the
Cincinnati Enquirer:
"Stlllwell Palmer, of Dover township,
a prosperous farmer, 7G years old. In
May, 1897, lost his speech and had not
spoken since till yesterday. He was re
ligious and thought the Lord directed
him to go to the house of an ex-preach
er named Her. He hitched up his horse,
took a slate and started. Her and his
family struck up a gospel song. Then
followed a season of prayer. Six prayed
that Palmer's speech be restored, and
when the prayers ended Palmer began
praying aloud himself. Palmer is a
Methodist and Iler a Baptist."
Xow the general reader disbelieves
such miraculous cures—puts It down as
a newspaper lie. But let this writer
secretary of the navy, and commodore I |)]lu'e himself on record as one who be
lieves that Palmer "lost his speech in
of the earlist yacht club, was 500 years
old when he achieved the first triplets
on record, Sliem, Ham and Japheth.
And these were o'.d enough to be mar
ried before he built his big yacht, that
won the cup. named the Ark. He was
600 years old at the flood, yet he had
done a feat several degrees more ardu
ous than any ever imposed on an U. S.
1S97," and that it was restored by pray
er in 1899. The writer is neither a Bap
tist nor a Methodist.

wet and the train was waiting, left the
rear carriages and trooped into the rail
way hotel a few yards off. While they
were drinking the smash took place.
The carriages which sixty of the beer
thirst crowd had quitted: were reduced
to matchwood."
Again does this scribe believe that
'drink" saved the lives of many per
sons. Flat-footed is the statement: men
saved their lives because they had' a
"beer thirst," and visited a saloon. Now
for a shocker. The footsteps of these
men were guided by the same power
that restored Palmer's' speech.
Several years ago a steamboat excur

big crowd went aboard one steamboat,
and a passing excitement caused the

eighteen persons were drowned. The
religious papers of the day mentioned
this as a direct act on the part of the
Almighty to punish such Sabbath dese
cration. The writer believes this, too,
