Texas PROBLEMS FACING STRICKEN WORLD Shall Chaos or Reconstruction in Europe Follow the Great World War? RUSSIA'S TRIAL OF SOCIALISM Ultimate Good to the World Looked for From the Practical Test Now Being Made in That Country. Article XIV. By FRANK COMERFORD. The "red flag" remedy has been de manding a trial, a test. The demand has been growing. Before its advo cates can be silenced they must be shown. Out of the test of socialism in Russia is bound to come good. Whether the theory is a practical oue or not. putting it to the test will an swer a question, satisfy a demand, and tend to quiet unrest. The ftiir-minded investigator cannot deny that there was justification and reason back of the effort to try the remedy. That the world has been suf fering from poverty cannot be denied. ho.ve found few men. even among the conservative, responsible leaders 'of business and governments in Europe, ho did not admit that conditions in the world before the war were not ght that some change in the order of things was inevitable: that the dis satisfied elements in society were com ing together and that unless men were given better lives, they were deter mined to fight. The working man was deteriorating physically under the strain of brutal working conditions which exacted too many units of phys ical energy for the number of calor ies of food lie was getting. The haemo globin count, the red corpuscles, were disappearing from the blood of the working people. It was not a theory: one could see it in the faces and move ments of the people. Medical men recognized the fact. A walk through the poorer district of any industrial city in Europe furnished plenty of evidence of this alarming condition. Men, women and children were resort ing to false stimulants to keep up. Tea. coffee and alcohol were being used in increasing amounts. Always on Verge of Want. Men were stretching their arms and yawning. Squalor and filth furnished the homes. Many lived in abject pov erty, many more lived on the border line of the garbage alley. Few were able to accumulate even the smallest surplus. They could not by scraping and denial got a week ahead of the game. It had become a hand-to-mouth existence, a weekly, monthly fight to meet the grocery hills, buy stockings, shoes, and the scant amount of clothes to cover their bodies. It was bread and coffee for breakfast, bread with jam and tea for dinner, tea and cheese for supper. Sausage sometimes took turns wijjh cheese. Once a week, the Sunday repast, a great stew, a few vegetables and a bone. In the Latin countries it was the same, except that diluted cheap wine was substituted for tea. The great majority of men found themselves poorer and older at the end of the week than they were at its beginning. Over the workingman's head was suspended night and day by a thin, weak thread, the dreaded sword of poverty. Men feared that the thread might break any minute. It was the thread by which they held the thing called a "job." What did they care about the rights of private property? They didn't have any private prop erty. The socialists had willing list eners when they ranted about com munism. It promised to give these people property, to give them a com mon ownership of everything. It wasn't hard to convince them that this was better than ownership of nothing. The bolsheviks of Russia are en titled to the presumption of good faith in selecting the Marxian formula. It is only fair to them, and to the rem edy, to examine the experiment with a mind free from prejudice. In admit ting the good intentions of the bol sheviks I am nor conceding that bol shevism is practicable, workable that it has succeeded or can succeed. For the present I am trying to fairly give the whole story of the effort. It Is ns foolish to try to answer the bol shevik propaganda by calling the bol sheviks ugly names, as it would be stupid to accept bolshevism because Its advocates are sincere. Need for Calm Consideration. Russia Is the patient. If we are to Intelligently judge the treatment called bolshevism. It Is necessary to get a complete history of the patient and examine the conditions under which the experiment was tried. Any doctor who is a scientist would follow euch a procedure In handling a med ical case. If a doctor announced to the scientific world that he had a rem edy for cancer, which at the present time Is an incurable physical disease, just as poverty is a social one, the scientists would give a hearing to his theory, seek a fair test for it, keep their minds open, and judge the effi cacy of the remedy by the results it produced. Communism, as a treat ment, a cure for poverty, has never been put to the test on a scale and In circumstances which justify any posi tive judgment as to whether or not the plan is a practical one. As I have written, the Russian bolsheviks Insist that \J every one owns everything in common there can be no poverty. They base this statement on their faith that communism will Increase production. They claim that competition shackles production. They say that the com* petitive system takes from the Indi vidual the inducement to work—thht communism would give him an incent ive to work that it would be a stimu lant that under it men would work better and produce more. They add that the present system Is bound to provoke an increasing number of strikes and that strikes stop produc tion, cause waste, Increase poverty. There Is no doubt about the fact that there could be no poverty in the so cialistic state ifcommuuism succeeded in stimulating men to work harder, thus greatly Increasing production, be cause there would be more to eat, more to wear, more to use, and as the dis tribution would be controlled by the state, all of the people would receive an equal share of the great abundance, all would have enough. For the sake of fairness to them, I am conceding that the distribution program would be honestly and justly carried out, but a better distribution, a more equal and just division would mean nothing if the first, the fundamental promise of bolshevism—greater production—is not fulfilled. Any plan which decreases production causes a shortage of the things necessary to life. If the bol sheviks are wrong in their belief that commuuism will Increase production, then bolshevism would make poverty general, universal, and instead of bol shevism curing the cancer on the body of civilization, It would make the en tire body of civilization a cancer. If the claims of bolshevism are well founded, sound in common sense, cap able of fulfillment, communism would be the greatest blessing ever conferred upon humanity. On the other hand, if the bolsheviks are wrong, and com munism took from them the induce ment to work, then notwithstanding the good intentions of the bolsheviks, their communism would be the great est scourge the world has known. This Is the simple issue in the case. If bol shevism is the good thing its advo cates say it is, it will bring the mil lennium, and every human being should be in favor of it: but if it is not practical, and will not work out, then it is a danger, the red flag is its proper signal, and the world should avoid the danger signal as an engineer charged with the safety of human life would avoid running by a red light on the track ahead. Examine Before Condemning. Going back to the case of our friend, the doctor who honestly and sincerely believes he has a cure for cancer, let us consider what the scientific world would demand before offering a judg ment as to the value of his proposed cure. First, they would free their minds of all prejudice. They would be reasonable and patient as they would be thorough in examining the proposed remedy from every possible ancle. They would analyze the formu la, examine It in the light of experi ence. Why shouldn't we follow the same sensible plan in considering bol shevism? Won't we get farther if we do? Hasn't such a course an advant age over quarreling about it? Why should some of us accept it without knowing what It Is? Why should others condemn it without under standing? And why should both these groups get excited and irritated, call each other names, learn to hate, and add to the worlds unrest? I propose to follow the method of the scientist as nearly as I can in ex amining the patient, Russia, the world cancer, poverty, and the remedy— bolshevism. 1. A complete family history, so that we may know and understand the constitution of the patient. 2. The physical and mental condi tion of the patient at the time treat ment was begun. 3. The formula—the remedy. 4. The theory of the cure. 5. The methods used in applying the remedy. fi. The history sheets showing the effect of the treatment upon the pa tient. 7. The condition of the patient after more than two years of bolshevism. (Copyright, 1920, Western Newspaper Union) Monarchs Tire of Switzerland. Former Emperor Charles of Austria and Empress Zita are tired of remain ing in Switzerland, according to a tel egram from Prague, and have applied to the Czocho-Slovak government for permission to reside in Prague. The request was refused for political rea sons. One reason given for the request is that owing to the low rate of exchange In Switzerland the former royal cou ple are receiving only one-tenth of their Income from Vienna. Empress Zita is reported to have been forced to sell more of her jewels. An American newspaper Is under stood to have offered the former em peror $500,000 for his reminiscences, but although financially embarrassed, he refused. Child Victims of the War. In Jugo-Slavia there are 500,000 fa therless children of whom 150,000 are absolutely destitute. Among them tu berculosis, eye and skin diseases are rife. Of these children, up to July, fewer than 2,000 had been provided for, largely because of the tremendous difficulties attending the work in an utterly disorganized community. The government at Belgrade and the great American and English relief organ izations are now working In thorough harmony in their efforts to carry these children safely through the winter. They can only succeed if there Is no slacking of effort on the part of the American and British publics. THE HOPE PIONEER STRIKERS FIRM IN TKEJRDEMtND New York Firemen and Engine men Will Not Return Until Demands Are Met. STRIKE NEARIN6 END Passenger Strike Is Becoming Normal In All Major Railroad Terminals, and Strike Leaders Are Returning to Work. New York.—Railroad firemen and enginemen on strike in the metro politan district voted at a meeting in Hoboken, N. J., not to return to work "irrespective of whatever action "has been or may be taken by railway employes elsewhere until certain con ditions have been met." It was announced that the men had no other grievances than pay and that they would not return to work until they received a guaranteed wage in crease. It was said that .1,000 strikers attended the meeting. A statement issued by the executive committee declared that the men do not care whether the guarantee comes from the railroad wage board or the railroad managers but insisted that the men be guaranteed a wage in crease sufficient to meet the increased cost of living. Traffic Becoming Normal. Chicago.—Samuel W. Heberiing, president of the Switchmen's Union of North America, announced Saturday night that information received by him from all purts of the county indicated the insurgent strike of yardmen had ended. "Passenger traffic Is becoming nor mal In all major railroad terminals," he said. "Even the leaders of the strike' are returning to work. I anticipate very little further trouble." With the machinery of the railroad labor board in Washington set in motion to adjust various wage contro versies, there came reports from the principal railroad centers of vastly improved conditions, with here and there a show of lingering stubbornness by the strikers to continue an appar ently hopeless struggle. RUSSIANS DEMAND APOLOGY Refuse to Conduct Any Negotiations Until Protest Is Answered. Vladivostok.—The provisional gov ernment here refuses to conduct any negotiations with the Japanese until the protest Issued on April 6 demand ing an apology from the Japanese is answered. This situation developed when the Japanese asked the pro visional government to order the Rus sian railway men to return to work on the railways. The newspapers of Vladivostok printed bitter attacks on the allies because of their failure to protest against the Japanese actions in Siberia. Americans arriving here from Niko lask report that events there on April 14 were virtually the same as in Vladivostok, the Russians being dis armed. Many fled to the hills. The Japanese report that 38 of their na tionals were killed and 80 wounded, while the Russians suffered 200 cas ualties. The Japanese have blown up the great bridge over the, Amur river at Knabaravsk, being forced to take the utmost measures for defense against partisan troops approaching from tKe west. The Japanese in Ivnabflrovsk are in a difficult position. PHYSICIAN KILLED IN CHURCH Dr. James W. Markoe Assassinated While Attending Services. New York.—Firing a revolver to ward the altar as he stood amid the congregation of St. George's church, just after the collection had been taken, Thomas W. Shelley, self-con fessed bolshevist, sent a bullet crash ing through the brain of Dr. James W. Markoe, personal physician of J., P. Morgan and a vestryman of the church. Dr. Markoe fell dead in the aisle. Brandishing the pistol. Shelley ran to the nearest door and waving his weapon at the people, warned them to keep away. Dr. George F. Brewer, who had been passing collection boxes with his fel low vestrymen, disregarded the warn ing and advanced upon the maniac and was shot in the leg. He, too, fell in the aisle, but almost immediately recovered his feet and notwithstanding his wound, hurried toward Shelley and seized, the assas sin, delivering him to detectives who had been attracted by the gunfire and screams of hysterical women wor shipers. Congressman Wears Overalls. Washington. Representative Up shaw. Democrat, Georgia, appeared in the house Saturday wearing overalls. His suit caused a sensation, but in reply to questions of members he said there was "nothing unusual about it, that it was simply a move to strike at the high cost of clothing. Represen tative TJpshaw said he had been prom ised the cooperation of Representa tives Ferris and Carter, Democrats, of Oklahoma, in organizing an overall club. TWO NANS By MILDRED WHITE. (Copyright, 1!20, Western Newspaper Union.) I sat in the attic beside the long closed trunk which held Aunt Nan's girlish finery. I could not remember Aunt Nan. She had gone away when I was a child, and later she died. But It seemed that the memory of tills de parted aunt, with her name bestowed, was to be my continued warning against frivolity and light-mindedness. I had been brought up by Aunt Mi nerva In loneliness and severity. It was' mother's cross, and hers, that I should resemble Aunt Nan to a marked degree bringing back con stantly recollection of sorrow and hu miliation. It seemed that Aunt Nan had brought this suffering Into Aunt Minerva's life apd to many others by her charm of attraction, thoughtless ness and—so her sister said—by utter heartlessness. But ever in my dis ciplined childish mind was a sneaking admiration for this same witch of an aunt, who with her small brown face had triumphed In love. And as she could not keep all the love bestowed, I reasoned, what could she do but cast it back again? I used to study the painting of my mother and her two sisters and ponder over it. "You see," Nan's twinkly eyes seemed to say, "I'm more sinned against than sinning. It is my elder sisters who enjoy the advantages if I happened to win love here and there, can I help that?" The pathetic curve of Nan's lips begged the question. Startled, I turned to the glass to see another small face with the same twinkly eyes, the same lips drooping in the mirror grieved with iife as it was. The "resemblance was remarkable as I had heard mother and Aunt Minerva so often re mark and becni*se of that resem blance, 1 lived until the age of twen ty-flve the secluded life of a cloister. Aunt Nan's unforgivable sin was the winning of a heart—which had been duly given and signed to Minerva. Aunt Minerva's fiance had not hap pened to meet the elusive Nan until after lie was publicly betrothed to Aunt Minerva. But as soon as he did know the queer little creature it was all off with Minerva and he told her so honestly. He could care for no one else thereafter, he said, but the little girl who had bewitched liim and though Aunt Nan would have nothing to do with the man after that, he lingered only long enough to learn of her affair with David, then he went away forever. David Burnie was the only son of the old Scotch doctor whom everybody loved and David was studying medicine in the city that he might soon fill his father's place. David had played with Nan when she was a schoolgirl. He'd loved her throughout high school days and though Nan laughed and treated him in her charming Impersonal manner, still David's hope was to win her for his wife when lie should be through with his college, and take her to his father's home to dispense happiness there as Its mistress. Nan allowed him to think that perhaps this hope might come. Then as David was about to graduate Nan wrote him from Cali fornia, where she had gone to visit, that if he'd throw over the doctor business altogether and go out there where there was a wonderful opening for him in her uncle's business con cern, she might marry him there. David threw over his career without a regretful thought and went to her and the old doctor, who was getting too old to carry on his practice longer, closed his office, door in silence and closed liis heart to David. And when David reached California, Nan was married. She "had not meant to be," she told David tearfully, but this man who loved her had felt so terribly when he learned of David's coming. And tills was' the Nan who had been held up to me In warning. David never came back. No one knew what became of him. There were stacks of David Burnle's letters In the trunk which Nan left so long ago here in her home. I loved to read them on long idle afternoons and I pictured David to myself a man of noble sympathies, the hero of every book I read. There was a picture of David, too. and I liked the fine seriousness of his face. And on this particular afternoon I drew from the trunk a muslin dress covered with lavender roses and fanci fully I tied its violet ribbons about my waist, then standing before the mirror I parted my brown hair as Aunt Nan's was parted in the picture and I smiled again at the replica of myself. Perhaps some of Nan's mis chievous daring may have been evoked from her dress for I started with unwonted gayety down the stairs to flash myself upon Aunt. Minerva's gaze. She was not on the veranda, as I had expected, but a man stood there, a man who had been ringing the bell without response. He was a stranger, man of distinguished appearance. Then ail at once I recognized his face. "David," I cried impulsively. "Da vid Burnie!" for it was he—the same fine face, so fteriously kind. There were patient wrinkles now about his mouth and eyes, his temples were touched with gray, but this was my hero still, the man whose character I had read in the lines of his letters. And David stood there as one be^ witched. Indeed I think he was. "Nan," he murmured, unbelievingly, "Nan—come back again." And I knew that it was to'be mine to make up to him for that he had lost—that I was to keep the faith. Suffered lor Years Miserable From Kidney Trouble Dora's Made Mr. Harnett Strong and WeU.
