THE OA1I fllinil'MTV,
We suppose most of our renders saw

Journal tho other day about the Zoar
community In Ohio. Ai we lead over the
storj of the Brookl n strike and jestcr

Kansas City workhouse rock pile, we
thought of the story of these Zoirites.
There has never been a strike among

Yv e ate not about to advocate social
ism, communism, or an thing of the
soit, but only to call attention to a very
significant fact In the social economy of
such people. It is ifemonstrated that it
is possible for people to get the maxi
mum of comfoit out of the minimum
of work. This fact stands out Hist In the
history of all these communities that
while they last they provide the high
est ph slcal comfort, and --oelal peace
of an ct tried conditions of civilized
life. In this countiy the Zoailteo, tho
Rappites, the Oneld i communlt, the
Mennonites, tho Shakers, tho Mormons,
and other.s Thee communities ate

but not all for the Oneida community

The geneial or economic fact under

and crime are unknown among them.
They are singularly free from the opeia
tlon of our criminal statutes, and In the
comforts of life housing, clothing,
abundant and heilthtul food, peisonal
cleanliness, sanitary condition and mor
allt, they will lead always nnd every

This fact cannot but have Its Influ
ence on the social thought of tho fut
uie, and It is almost every jear that
we lead of like eperlments In agita
tion and enibrjo. Utopia Is possible in
degree by the demonstration of these ex
pet intents we have named. The Moimon
accomplishment In Utah Is tho most con
spicuous evimplo of associated effort.
The Shaker lllages are equillv success
ful, nnd as Mormonlsm and hhakerlsm
ate radical opposltes In ethical condi
tions, tho atgument of their example Is
the stronger from the economic side. The
only obstacle to tho success of these
conditions on a larger scale Is tho want
of self-contiol In larger masses of men.
In these expel lini-nts tho bond seems
to be a common belief nnd a selected
leader and exponent of that belief. They
nre most successful during the lifetime

the same recognition of a successor that
was given tho foundir, they would be

The labor problem will never be set
tled by violence, When It comes to an
appeal to physical might theie can ho
but one outcome of a dispute, and that
Is falluie on the part of the aggressor,
Tho grievance from which the violence
grows has nothing to do with the neces
sity for thw enforcement of laws for tho
protection of life and property.
The dlstui banco in liiookljn can be no
exception to the rule. In tho considera
tion of this phusu of the btiike question
It Is unnecessar to discuss tho matter
of compensation forlabot, nor the exact-
Ing demands of capital The one object
of all efforts for tho enforcement of law
Is the restoration of the security of
the rights of the public and the safet
of the property menaced
In tho necessity for tho adoption of
armed measures to accomplish this end
the striking wage earner Is the loser In
the sjmpathy of the genera) public
A resort to violence for tho settlement
uf labor disputes, as well as all other
economic contentions, is always as un
wise as It Is unlawful. At the pres
ent t i e, when every Industrial dis
turbance can but add to tho timid state
of capital, and the unhappy condition
of labor, strikes are little less than
criminal They are not only a menace
to the general welfare, but are an actual
Interference with the first rights of mul
titudes whi nre ctruggllhg to obtain the

In the crowded centers of Indtislrj
the Individual who hns work nt nnv

the foiilng of dissatisfaction nnd unrest
that lurks everywhere Is hot only to en
danger the safety of pioprty, but the

We nto surrounded by conditions
which make It tho duty of every mem
ber of society to bear nil burdens of
common responsibility to the utmost
limit of endurance. Por violence there
Is no excuse whatever.

The Interview' with the new BccordT
of Voters 11, C. Arnold given In the
Journal yesterday morning hns the
llivor of a breero of pure prairie air.
Ho s.i.vs that to carry out his views of
nn honest election he "will need the sup
port of the pi ess nml the public." His
platfoun Is that on which the Journal
hns ntvvhVB stood and he shnll have Its
suppott In cairylng It out from first to
last and nil nlong the line. An rogues
nre ever rendy to turn over vheli they
Imc- to, the newspapers defending the
Infamous methods of the past will ho
vety vlituotis now, when they can't use
The championship of the villainies of
that olllce by certain newspapers has
been even a worse disgrace to Kansas
City than the poor wretches who sold
their manhood and oaths to the gang
Mi. Arnold Is n Democrat that till mn
can stand hv.
Kansas hns made no appeal to the out
side world for "aid" this winter, yet car
loads of ptovlslons and clothing are ar
riving eveiv few days from the East
for the lellef of "Kansas suffeiers" The
Eastern people have piobably got Kan
sas and Nebraska mixed In their minds.
Or possibly the calamity howls of the
Populists hate ci cited the Impression
abio.id that the whol" state Is on the
verge of stnivatlon. Tho East doesn't
understand that the Populist who howls
the most dismally and lugubilously is
generally a piosperous farmer who hap
pens to have political ambitions, or else
an Irresponsible blatherskite howling on
a salaiy. True, theio was a partial crop
falluie In Kansas last jear, but the
people are In good condition and feel
amply nble to iclleve nny distress that
may make Itself known. The kind East
ern contributor are under a misappre
hension. Tho Missouri legislature proposes to
make train robbing a capital olConse.
Such a law may possibly lessen the
number of robbeiles, but It Is llkelj to
have the effect of causing lobbcts to be
come more reckless In their work. If
they are to be hanged anyhow when
caught, they might ns well make sure
woik b killing engineers, conductors,
e.xpre-'s messengeis and any passengers
who may happen In tho way. The pro
posed law evidently has Its diawbacks
as well as good points
Leav enwoi th Times. As state senator,
Mr. Bakei has been moie than a credit
to his constituent As a member of
the uppei house of congress he will bo
an honoi tu the statu he represents.
Taking all things Into consideration,
not one single lault can be found with
tho Itepubllcan patty for deciding on
Mr. Baker to be senator. He Is a man of
whom we can all bo pioud and his elec
tion makes the itepubllcan party an or
ganisation uf which we can, also, all
be pioud Xo wlte-pulllng, trickery,
btlber, can be associated with his elec
tion. It not only shows that K m-as Is
ledeemed, but that something vety much
like leden.ptliin has taken place within
the tanks of the Itepubllcan pnity.
Xo one will eci have Just cuie to re
gret that Luclen Bakei, of I.eaven
v.orth, Is to be tho successor of John
Martin In tho United States senate.
Topeka Capital: Senatot Baker has not
alwavs subscribed to the full platform
of Kansas Republicanism, and when this
Is said all ts said that may be utteied
against him. He Is a Republican on
ever national Issue from conviction and
life-long association As a senator in
tho state legislature during the last ses
sion ho was a tower of strength to the
Republican minority, and In the Judg
ment of the Capital and many other
Kansas Republicans It is not the least
leason for the conlldenco felt in him by
the Republicans of the legislature that
he excited the animosity of the Populists
In n greater degtee than an other mem
ber of the last legislature As n lawjer
he Is one of the leaders of tho Kansas
bai, and has been for many jenrs ono
of the most sticessful prnctltloneis In
the state. 'While tint an oratoi, he Is a
leady, lluent, foiceful speaker who will
command respect In any forum. In per
sonal character he Is incorruptible, reso
lute and Independent, and he will go to
the senate without any strings tied to

It had evidently been decided on tho
Populist side not to attempt to break up
any more Joint sessions which are provided
for by the constitution of the United
States law, for Senator Householder's
motion to adopt the house resolution pro
viding for a Joint session to elect a sena
tor was ctrrled without a dissenting voice.
The senate adopted the house resolution
providing that the two car loads of goods
contributed to the needs of settlers In
Western Kansas and now In the hands of
tho governor he turned over to the
board of railroad commissioners for dis
tribution. A house resolution favorable to the elec
tion of United States senators by a direct
vote of the people was also adopted.
The committee on education reported fa
vorably upon a bill providing for i dliect
state nnd county tax for the support of
the public schools
Senator Scott submitted the protest
from the Republican si,o in the mattei
of the senate's refusal to spread the pro
cetdlngs of the state printer Joint session
upon the records, and Senator Dennlson
moved that the protest be denied a plnco
In the state Journnl. This motion was
continued by consent for discussion.
Senator benn called up his Joint reso
lution which Is as follows-
"Bo It resolved, That, wheieas the pre
llctlons and assertions of the believers of
the single gold standard have proved a de
lusion and a snare; that since then condi
tions have grown worse, there being more
Idle men, lower wages and lower nrlces for
all products than ever, that the situation in
our country is now serious, there being nt
this time S.000 armed men stnndlng onno.ed
to 20 000 people, prompt and efficient action
ought to bo taken to bring relief; there

senators In Washington be earnestly le
quested to use every effort In their power
to prevent the Issuance of any more Interest-bearing
bonds, and for the restora

cupied as a money metal before It was sur
reptitiously demonetized by tho European
money power, and, further, that a copy of
these resolutions be placed In the hands of
each eenator ana representative In con
Senator Brown Introduced the following
as a substitute for the foregoing:
"Resolved. That we are opposed to the
Issuance of bonds In times of peace, and are
In favor of such legislation ns will pro
cure the largest circulation of gol 1 and
sliver which can be maintained at a parity
one with the other."
In support of his eubstltute Senator
Brown said that while there wero some
things In Senator Senn's resolution that
ho might ote for, he could not swallow
the whole doje
Senator Thacher said that he was not
willing to place himself on record ns vot
ing that congress was surreptitiously pass
ing any legislation.
Senator Dennlson said that all records
agreed that tho demonetization of silver
was accomplished surreptitiously.
Senator Danner replied that he had re
cently read the Congressional Recotd on
this demonetization question. So far from
having been accomplished without the full
knowledge nnd understanding of congress,
It had been under discussion In three con
gresses, and this talk of surreptltlousness
was simply balderdash, and as bad, or
worse, than that other rot about the Eu
ropean money power.
Senator Parker said that this resolution
was more in the nature of a Populist stump
speech than of a Berlous nttempt to get
congress to do something on the money
question The bill demonetizing silver
which the gentleman said was surreptl
tlously passed had been printed and amend
ed thirteen different times, discussed for
days, passed upon hy committees, and fin
ally debated thoroughly upon the fioor of
Senator Senn Insisted that the Congres
sional Record did not know what It was
talking about, and that congress really was
Ignorant of what It was voting upon
Senator Shearer spoke to the "European
money power" and quoted Ernest Sed as
saying that he had tilled his pockets with
Bittlsh gold and come to the United States
and Influenced congress to demonetize sil
ver Senator Danner replied that the records
showed that Earnest Sed was not In the
United States at the time silver was de
monetized or under consideration.
Senator Forney said that James G.
Blaine's book was his authority for the
statement that Mr, Seyd was here at that
Senator Parker demanded to know on
what page of his work James G, Blaine
had made such an assertion,, and Senator
Porney promised to lok It up and report to

party vote, and tho original resolution
