It will be a story of government by property, of executives and congressmen who bow 'he knee to power, who refuse appro priations for the public health be cause the poor who suffer from pre- I ventahle disease are too Inarticulate ' and unorganized to demand protec- I tion, or to punish public servants who withhold it.

COLORADO STRIKE WON, WALSH TELLS MINERS INDIANAPOLIS. —"The strike in the coal fields of Colorado was won. because you compelled John D. Rock efeller to accept the responsibility for everything that occurred in the state of Colorado," said Frank P, Walsh, in an address before the con vention of Hie United Mine Workers of America. "The strike was won again, be cause you have compelled him to pub licly acknowledge the essential scien tific facts that underlie the right of collective bargaining on the part of workers. You won the fight because you compelled him to get up a bogus j organization, but one that will teach »i the workers the first principle, at ! least, of getting together, and one ' that when you begin to get action in | the intelligent way that you have | heretofore done in other coal fields Of the United States will establish real collective bargaining under the j United Mine Workers of America in i 'he field of Colorado. It has taught lessons, my friends, far beyond the narrow field in Colorado. It received the background of the testimony of | hundreds of employers who have dealt i with their employes collectively for more than a score of years." COMPENSATION LAW UPHELD OKLAHOMA CITY— Judge Oldfield ;of the district court has upheld the ; constitutionality of the compensation law, passed ias? year. A workman j employed or.

Ya. In a double column editorial The State Journal of this city condemns most vigorously the conviction in Judge Dayton's fed eral court of a score of Fairmont pos tal employes who resigned their posi tions because of a failure to secure justice from the post office depart ment and the civil service commis sion. The editor says, in part: "It is well to bear in mind that the Fairmont post office employes were indicted and prosecuted for a con spiracy to obstruct sad retard the passage of the mails by peaceably quitting their employment, It was admitted by the government that they had used neither physical force, in timidation, threats, or moral suasion to prevent others from taking their places. They undertook to exercise no control save that guaranteed them —control of themselves and their own services. "If the government of the United States in the civil service has the right and the power to compel its • mployes to continue their services under these circumstances, and upon the contention set up in this case, whether the employes will or no, then private interests and private employ ers have the same right and the same "In such a proposition there is nei th» r law nor logic.

PRIVATE ARMIES DENOUNCED HI BRING. Minn—Editor Atkinson t of The Mesaba Ore opposes the prac > tice of corporations maintaining pri :" "The Oliver police is a force of ■ trained and uniformed men in the r pay of the Oliver Iron Mining com pany, and is in direct violation of the rights of liberty. These officers are deputy sheriffs, but their salaries are paid by the United States Steel Cor ] poration. How does that look to you c who think you are living in a FREE j country and under a form of govern j ment that insures life, liberty and the t pursuit of happiness? "Supposing now, for instance, there .'comes trouble at the mines and the • mining companies see fit to order out j | its private police force to shoot down ; those they deem need shooting down, thr-n you can understand the nature of this prostitution of the laws of the a Stat* —wherein a private corporation I is permitted to control and use the machinery of the sheriff's office to protect the mining companies in any thing they may undertake. "Our own county officers are hired by a corporation to shoot us down if ■ we should do anything displeasing to , the mining companies (it may never be as bad as that, to be sure, but the power is there just the same), and ( we are therefore at the mercy of the I mining people who can use the police power of the state for their own pri . vate purposes, be they right or wrong. "The recent disastrous results of the labor trouble at Youngstown was I caused directly by the armed guards employed at the mills, who flouted their brief 'authority' in the faces of . ! the men who were trying to gain a . detent day's wage, and murder, riot and fire followed. "We hope to see more stringent . laws enacted for the protection of the people against the greed of the min ing companies and other large em . i plovers of labor. There is need, and ■ that right soon." , LAW INCLUDES CLOAK MODELS I ALBANY, N.

Under the caption "Worthy of His Hire," the Kansas City Post says: , "If there was a question of finding money in the city treasury to pay the wages of political retainers useful in the spring election, it is probable it would he found. Hut the question of I obtaining the amount to add to the wages of the city's day laborers is an other matter. In spite of the resolu tion of the council giving a 25-cent 1 increase to the one class of city em- ' ployes who really work, the board who have dir> ct charge of these men say it can't b' done until the end of tlie fiscal year In April.

"The paynn nt of an adequate wage . to the thousand or more city em ployes of this class would stimulate f trade of merchants selling food and 3 clothing.

The above statements are made fea s tures of a report by President Vol] and Secretary-Treasurer Donnelly of i the state federation of labor to the g executive board of that organization j after a personal investigation of con ditions in East Youngstown. I These unionists say, in part: "We found that the private police employed by the Youngstown Sheet & Tube Company were the aggressors r 1 In the fighting preceding the rioting " and therefore responsible for inflam ing the minds of the people. We found there was no provision for the education of foreigners, who largely comprise the population. On the con trary, the company, through its presi dent, Mr. James Campbell, objected to night school for these people. Out ' of a population of between 9,000 and 10,000, there are only 421 voters in East Youngstown and 1,100 children in the schools.

This law, if put through, provides— the following taken from Section C of the Stevens-Ayres Bill: "A schedule setting forth the UNI FORM PRICE of sale thereof TO DEALERS AT WHOLESALE, and the UNIFORM PRICE of sale thereof TO DEALERS AT RETAIL from what ever source acquired, and the UNl form PRICE OF SALE THEREOF TO THE PUBLIC." Wouldn't that be nice? (for Iho combine). This is what It would do: The manufacturer could set his price to the WHOLESALER, the RETAIL ER, and the CONSUMER, and no one could buy for any less no matter whether he purchased 1 package or a carload. The manufacturer could print on the package "25c" or "45c" or any other figure and the law would say that YOU MUST PAY THAT PRICE FOR IT.
