IT is the duty of every good citizen to promote the objects of
the industrial peace conference, which closed" last night. /It
should be obvious that San Francisco cannot continue to exist
on a basis of industrial strife. There must come an end to that
some time, and the conference desires to bring. about that ending
before both parties to the conflict have reached the point of exhaus
tion. It seems scarcely necessary to point out that the present
process of adjustment is , wasteful and unscientific. No settlement
arrived at by this mean's is ever satisfactory, because ' it leaves
behind bad blood and angry feeling, . ready to promote and actuate
a new struggle as soon as the parties • have recovered from the
wounds of battle. No peace can be lasting that is not .based on
mutual recognition of rights. Professor, Miller of the University
of California looks the situation straight in the face when he says:
However, the dawn of a brighter era in industrial : relations seems 'not
so far distant You can no more break the unions than you can smash the
trusts. Trade unions and co-operative capital are twin sisters, companions
in the same cradle. The same necessity will perpetuate them both.' It is
folly for practical men to get- together and "talk of- killing the trusts and
trade unionism. It can't be done.. , .
It was, the object of the conference to bring us closer, to this
new era that must follow tlie recognition of industrial and
economic facts. To this complexion we must come at last, that
voluntary negotiation, arbitration and contract shall take the
place of war. . .
i hi HE piteous outcry that comes from the Fairbanks literary
x bureau is making Indiana howl and the rest of us weep. If
J_ nothing more, it is, at least, the best evidence of a pretty how
d'ye do. Thus we find the editor of the Jeffersonville Star
turning loose on the country a frenzied battery of marked copies,
denouncing a wicked writer who has used the columns of a weekly
paper to limn and lam an ungracious portrait of what he is pleased
to call' "The Real Fairbanks." What they think about this fellow
in Indiana is related in burning words by the bureau, like this:
One Gilson Gardner, a Washington correspondent » of the common
yellow variety, has been writing for Collier's Weekly" aperies of articles
professing to tell the truth ?.hout the record of the vice president. Gardner
himself never made an invc«r : -ntion of the vice president's career at Indian
apolis or elsewhere. He 1 . gathered together the hearsay gossip of
malicious enemies such as any man in public Jife is certain to make. His
articles are a combination of downright falsehood and false interpretation
of fact ' ; "' . .
All this is most distressing and even calculated to raise a
doubt whether there is any "rjeal Fairbanks." We know the Fair
banks myth.- We have heard: of a long legged statesman who
began his campaign on buttermilk and has already got as far as
cocktails. We have heard of the heroic rescue of a damsel \u25a0in dis
tress that the real or supposititious Fairbanks accomplished ;by
wading out into a lake thirty-one feet deep. These things we know
and recognize as of the mythology of politics, but the hideous
portrait of Mr. Fairbanks as the wicked corporation lawyer — what'
are we think of that, when the Jeffersonville Star says that it is
"muck"? It is enough to make the plain man believe that there
is no real Fairbanks. There are we know three or four kinds ;of
Fairbanks, all enjoying a large; circulation. Some of them 'are
black' as Old Nick and some as white as the Angel Gabnel,vbut
none of them is convincing. In fine, we are persuaded that Fair
banks "is a fabled monster out of Indiana, brother to the mermaid
and a large consumer of buttermilk and whitewash, but whether
he is a condition or a theory we* cannot pretend to say.
PROHIBITION as a national issue is as dead as mutton.
Indeed, it never Had much vitality, but, as a local ..matter it
is showing more activity than ever. In Indiana, in Texas and
even, in Kentucky the regulation or even -extinction -of .the
liquor traffic assumes many and unexpected shapes. ; \ Way down
in Georgia prohibition is winning victories; and the fire eating
editor of the Georgian, John Temple Graves, writes- in this impas
sioned strain" about it: . - .
Whatever my judgment may have ; been in , other days as to the most
effective method of lifting the liquor curse, I .have "never voted "any other
than a prohibition • ticket in my, life.' In 1889, as ; editor of the Rome Tribune
I spoke and, wrote my loyal adherence to"; the ? great: cause of prohibition.' '\u25a0
And here and now, briefly and - without \u25a0; elaboration, : let 'me ; say •\u25a0 that
with my wholes heart and my whole soul/with; lip arid* pen -and' purse r am
enlisted in the cause which carnes;the hope and' the happiness of : Georgia
. . .S. Sl _ n^ c l\u25a0- * ctUTn *£ to ; my ' desk \u25a0on Saturday; only, one day has elapsed in
which I have not voiced my advocacy; of this cause, and until: the end of the
chapter 1 1 shall be found, foot to foot and arm:toarmwith the foremostVof
those who Sght this great battle of temperance in the .state. y :
It has always been characteristic- of the prohibition cause that
the language of - its devotees' was as strong ?as their liquor was
mild. A prohibitionist prefers to: talkatl the top of; his voice.' Yet
we believe that the day of the extreme prohibitionist is gone "byj
The present recrudescence of the movement means temperance
which is quite a different; thing from/ prohibition: •; It means that
the people very generally have become convinced of the ; evils
intemperance, arid the sporadic: legislatiori : \o be seen in many of
the states is' merely a-symptomof that [sentiment desiring to impress
itself by force, on wnole; com muni ties ." But , when ! the sentiment for
temperance becomes universal ' no £ coercive legislation -will be
required. /In fact, the ; vice of coercion is \u25a0<\u25a0\u25a0 that it begins • . at .*. the
j wrong end. -Temperance^ is; a" question: of ; ami most
i successful propaganda is: that: which catcHes ;\ them^younsr; The
| Ttiel^atipn^
League of the Cross has done more for temperance than all l 'the
prohibitory legislation .that clutters the books. '\u25a0'\u25a0\u25a0\u25a0S\t \ \ \u0084 '
IT; seems/, reasonably certain that congress ?wUK ; be forced to
increase the; pay of; enlisted 'men if the;- strength- of the army is
vtpbe maintained: - r lts present force : ; is^6o,ooo; men of all ranks;
i \u25a0 which cannot be regarded as much more than a mere handful;
from a -war standpoint. In time of peace i it is;big< enough for -all
purposes, but: the ranks, are rapidly: dwindling: arid areYonly/ kept
up by strenuous and expensive recruiting. % .•
\u0084 The; other day. General Franklin* Bell said, y!There. : is some
thing wrong, with the army,'' but^ he;! did jlnot specify ; the wrong/
Secretary Taft, when asked about^it;- said ;thearmy^was"tbo snikll;
"The trouble } with the army," said the of waV "is>that
there isVnot; enough of it.": He idid^not go into vparticulars. :
It is in the coast defense artillery'that men are -mostly ;- needed;
c ; coast batteries : are ; not half; manned and it is impossible to
maintain thekrequisite \u25a0 gun crews at sthe5 the pay >of » enlisted- men. A
skilled artilleryman, capable of operating; the : big that over
look the Golden gate,- for instance, 'must be :'a skilled mechanic. He'
learns his; trade at thejexpense -of, UricleiSam, and when his term
expires^ he never re : enlists. ;He c can.do' better; in ; civil \ life!": The
government loses' the money, spent on^ his training;and must repeat
the process on raw recruits, if they ."can be had.
; The modern soldier', or sailor, must be ' a skilled at
least in -the artillery^brajnehesr and rsl3J;a;^^mh^oV/ever sl3J;a;^^mh^oV/even i ? $17/ a
