It is interesting to watch the forces:
of civilization battling for supremacy.1
The struggle now going on between the'
rubber and the iron tire promises to
be the liveliest contest of the Twen
The struggle is a silent one and
there are no war correspondents to
write vivid descriptions of the con
flict but the results are more "far
reaching to present and future gen
erations than the war of Europe.
The rubber tire has been maneuver
ing for point of attack for several
years and has captured a few unim
portant positions in traffic, but it has
now 'pitched a decisive battle with
its iron competitor by hurling a mil
lion "jitneys" at the street railways
and the battle is raging from ocean
to ocean. Upon the result of the
struggle depends the future of the
rubber tire. If it is compelled to rethe
treat, its doom is sealed, but if it wins
the battle it will revolutionize the
transportation methods of this nation.
If the rubber tire conquers the
street traffic its next struggle is with
the railroads of the country, and then
the greatest battle between economic
forces ever fought out on the face
of this earth is on, for iron is the un
disputed master in transportation, and
Is fortified behind billions of dollars,
and millions of men.
Stephenson applied the steel tire
te an iron rail in 1814, but it was 1869
before the golden spike wSs driven
at Promontory Point, which bound
the cojuntry "together with bands of
steel. It took the iron tire fifty-five
years to creep from ocean to ocean,
but the rubber tire while warm from
the creative mind of the inventive
genius sped across the continent like
an arrow shot from the bow of Ulys
ses. The roadbed was already pre
pared and therein lies the power of
the rubber tire over that of iron, for
government builds and maintains the
But iron is a stubborn metal and
it has mastered every wheel that
turns has fought battles with every
element above and beneath"the earth
and has never tasted the wormwood
of defeat, and when rubber hurls its
full force against this monarch of
the Mineral Kingdom, it may rebound
to the factory stunned beyond recov
The rubber tire first made its
pearance on the bicycle, but it proved
a frivolous servant and was dismissed
for incompetency. It has always been
too much inclined to revel in luxury
to be taken seriously as a utility ma
chine and its reputation is not one to
inspire confidence in heavy traffic
But to those who care to waft into
dreamland, it is enchanting to note
that there will be a marvelous differ-,
ence between a rubber and an iron
The rubber tire will scatter the
cities throughout the valleys for with
transportation at every man's door,
why a city? -jt'.will traverse the con
tinent with a net work of Macadam
highways as beautiful as the boule
vard huilt by Napoleon. It will par
alyze the law making bodies of this
nation for how could the legislatures
run without the railroads to operate
The recent investigation of the
United States Commission of Indus
trial Relations brought together the
extremes of society and has given the
public an opportunity to view the rep-,
resentatives of distinct classes, side
by side, and to study their views in
Capital and labor have always been
glaring at each other over gulfs of
misunderstanding and if the Federal
Industrial Commission attempts to
bridge the chasm, it will render the
public a distinct service.
The farmer has been sitting on the
fence watching capital and labor fight
for many years and incidentally furn
ishing the sinews of war and it is
quite gratifying to find them talking
with, instead of about,, each other.
When honest men smile and look into
each other's souls, it always makes
the world better and far more satis
factory to the farmer, who in the end,
bears the burden of conflict, than
resolutions, speeches or pamphlets
containing charges and counter
The love for justice makes the
whole world kin. Understanding is an
arbiter far more powerful than the
mandates of government, for there is
no authority quite so commanding as
an honest conscience there is no de
cree quite so binding as that of the
Supreme Court of Common Sense and
no sheriff can keep the peace quite so
perfect as Understanding.
We suppose .the time will never
come when capital and labor will not
be occasionally blinded by the light
ning flashes of avarice or frightened
by the thunder peals of discontent.
But Understanding is a Prince of
Peace that ever holds out the olive
branch to men who want to do right.
A man's income is always a sacred
thing for in it are the hope, ambition
and opportunity of himself, and fam
ily, but there is nothing in a Human
heart quite so divine as Justice nd
Understanding ip its handmaiden

CIRCLE OF STEEL AND FIRE

few miles of Kraguyevats. With the
arrival of supplies Putnik fell upon
the Austrian expedtion, defeating
and driving them completely out of
Serbia. At Valievo, Nish, Kraguye
vats and half a dozen other towns,
hundreds of men are still working
today putting into shape for future
use the cannon and ammunition cap
tured from the Austrians.
Putnik's military genius is all the
more astounding because it is purely
of home development. He never
went to Russia, Germany or France,
as have most of the Balkan generals
study military science. He began
his career as a major in the war
against Budgaria in 1885 and rose
gradually until the victories he won
in the present war made him a field
During the Balkan war Gen. Put
nik contracted rheumatism from
sleeping on rainy battlefields. He
was under treatment at an Austrian
bath resort when the Austrian ulti
matum was flashed to Serbia last
summer. He caught the first train
to Serbia, was stopped by the Aus
trians at the frontier, but was re
leased when it was found there was
no possible pretext for holding him.
Foreign military attaches believe the
outcome of the present war might
have been changed if the Austrians
had prevented Putnik from crossing
into his native country.
Gen.. Putnik's sufferings from
rheumatism have been added to since
the war began by severe attacks of
asthma. Despite all this and not-}
'withstanding his advanced age, he
continues at his post as chief of staff.
A set of brilliant officers surround
him in his little room and execute
his orders. His personal staff in
cludes his son-in-law, a major in the
Serbian army. During the few hours
he is off duty, he spends his time at
his daughter's home.
