WHOM WILL YE SERVE. GOD OR

the Spirit of True Christianity So Per

Harmony with the Ten loimunntlmrnts.
All Interest I Isury.
This war now ra-jinp between cap
ital and labor is an "irrepressible con
flict " Here is the philosophy of the
question: Labor works for waes;
capital works for per cent. In the
production of wealth the world recog
nizes the law or just.ee that the "la
borer is worthy of his hire;' that his
wayes on one end of the scales must
balance the product on the other end.
Hut when we einer the domain of
commerce or exchange this law of
justice and ripjlit, this law of (Jod,
that "in the sweat of thy face shalt
thou eat bread," is ignored and disre
garded. All commerce is based on
per cent. Labor in the pro lu tion of
all wealth bovs to (Jod arid Iiis law;
but capital in earning on commerce
bows to the dollar, and recognizes no
law but the law of per cent.
Don't you see at a flaute, reader,
that these two methods of doin'
business an diamctri ally opposed to
each other? The law that labor rcc
.j;nizes is the law of thejjreat Father
above; the law that capital works by
is mammon worship. "Ye cannot
serve God and in itiuiion."
The nivrchants marks the seilin.4
price of hU goods so as to make a

of his labor now; the dollar is god u
far as do rig basin s is concerned,
and per cent. th,' law that governs
th case. m what grounds is he
exempt from (i:id"s irst law, "in the
sweat of thy fac?." etc? On the
ground that money cau grow and
produce other money by drawing
interest. The railroads levy charges
for freights and tares high enough
to cover all exp .rise , and make the
desired per cent, dividend. The
railroa 1 magnates, if they work at
all, it is not for wag s, but per cent.
The capitalist who runs a foundry
or factory rocecJs on ti.e snne line.
Wages are cut down to the starvation
points that capital can draw it
per tent The law governing com
merce all over tne civilized wo.ld is
mammon worship. Money is the god
of commerce. AVe may sneer at it,
or deny it, but the fact rema ns.
Now, the question up for cttle
ment is, which shall iu e the world,
God or mammon? An 1 it will not
down.
The men who think they can make
the world wag on under the old re gn
of mammon worship, a? our blind so
called stat- sri.cn do, are a ladly mis
taken set of demagogues. Mammon
worship is slawry. The world groans
and writhes tinier it. It is contrary
to the true impa'ses of the human
heart. Let :om.' great calamity be

town Hood or the great tins of the
Northwest, an J the i pulses of
man's better nattre rise al ove the
law of p.T cnt , and money and sui
plies aie p tried out without stint.
True socialism asseits itself in such
emergencies. Ti e wor d is one great
family. "An injury to one is thy
concern of all." The ma-ses beir-n
to Yaich on" and understand this
question. What a laborer produces
or earns by labor l.-eion- t him. To
take it ficrn Irin without giving him
an equivalent is to rob him. This is
exactly what p r cent, docs Jt tlc
vates money above man. No system
of reform can a nount to very much

A bad system ii the hands of good

have the sa 1 c effect a it would in

as many paupers to make a million

thing could be done, but it can t) as
to make or e out of ;:n atheist. There
is more true Chris ianity in the labor

James Houston m the Topeka Ad
vocate sava :
Believing there are others thinking
ulong tho same lines as myself, I come
now offering a few crtute thoughts,
expressed perhaps iu cruder phraseol
ogy, hoping to draw from abler pens
than mine a better expositiou of the
views herein advanced.
I have always been a Republican,
and am now, to the extent of indors
ing, as an eiitirity, the principles of
the party, but havo come to believe
tnat the party is not progressive
enough for the limes neither is the
Democratic party.
Lack of suilicient progression in
these parties have caused thousands
upon thousands of these restless, dis
contented voters and tho number is
constantly tmd rapidly being aug
mented. This .state ot unrest arises
from a deep-seated and well-founded
conviction that turo is ".something"
about our Government either in its
administration or fundamental princi
ples radically wrong.
What is I ha: something? Is it tobe
found in any outs or more of what we
are pleased to term the great political
issues of the day V Had our revenue,
currency ami other laws, which are
brought forth periodically, first one
and then another, as "issues," been at
all as nearly perfect as it were possible
for human ingenuity to devise, this
feeling of discontentment would not
have been stayid beyond the present
time, because the true cause of this
feeling does not lie directly or indi
rect Iv in iinv one or more of these Kmics
which are raided for the purpose of fo
menting party strife and creating sec
tional hatred to such a degree and to
the end that the minds of the masses
may be kept from iiucstions the solv
ing of which would drive abject pov
erty from the land and at the same
time dispossess the classes of their un
just powers and ill-gotten gains.
Men, through passion and preju
dice, are often blind to their own in
terests. Leaders of 1 olitical parties
are well aware of and relv on this fact
hence "issues."
Is is not about time the masses
realized this and stopped to think for
themselves, and to discover that tho
great and real evil of to-day and yester
day is to be found iu our land laws?
Ignoring 1 taper titles and recognizing
only those of occupancy and actual use,
real poverty would be a thing of the
past. Are paper titles of divine origin?
l)id the Creator place mankind upon
tho earth, some with paper titles and
others without? No. l'npr titles
were born of greed and brute force and
continue to he Porn of the same parents,
even unto this day.
Every man has a natural and inalien
able right to a portion of mother earth
on which to dwell and make a living.
Laws interfering with this right should
be set aside, and by force if necessary.
The contrary cannot b maintained
if we concede, as we must, the princi
ple tha every man has the right of
self-preservation.
Without paper ti les ther would le
no tributes in the way of rents to
society leeches. Earnit.gs and piotiis
would go back into business or eis go
toward bail iing homes and providing
comforts of life.
What keeps the merchaut, tho farm
er, the mechanic and the laborer poor?
Do they have mere than a scanty liv
ing left after paying their rents?
The amount paid in rents is appall
ing, and is extorted from the actual
producers of wealth who should be
and are edti led in natural justice to
all they produce. How long would it
bo before the masses would have homes
of their own could they use their mon
ey in buying material for mm me instead
of paying rent? There can bo only
one conclusion.
