The Country Gentleman is one of the numerous so-called agricultural papers which the moneyed interests took under their wing and held up by bank advertisements and in other ways so well known. It now says: "Even though millions of acres could be made to produce bountiful crops by irrigation, there is no necessity for them at this time. In fact, to open them up to cultivation would be a na tional calamity, and our farmers should strenuously oppose every at tempt." There is plutocracy for you. To make happy homes for millions of hard working people would be a na tional calamity! It would relieve the congestion of the great cities and have a tendency to raise the price of labor. That, the capitalists don't want. It would tend to feed the starving of Eu rope and make the wretches who toil there more independent, so it must not be done. It is said that the duties of the fam ily doctor in New York has been re duced to the point that all he has to do is to come in when there is sick ness and tell the pater famllias what specialist to send for. And the ser vices of specialists are so costly that It bankrupts the ordinary family to employ one of them. day of cross examniation of John Mitchell by the eminent railroad at torneys before the strike commission. Although Mitchell showed signs of fatigue, not once did the railroad at torneys succeed in weakening his tes timony. Finally Wayne MacVeagh said in a petulant tone, "You make the best witness for yourself that I ever confronted." Anyone knowing the least about the science of evidence knows why John Mitchell had firmly kept to the truth in all his testimony. Tuesday made the fourth successive The Reading railroad has answered the complaint filed by Editor Hearst with the interstate commerce commis sion, denying that it is in any way violating the law. The Reading railroad has Issued a circular announcing that on November 1 the wages of its employes "will be equalized with those paid by railroad companies in this vicinity" probably a 10 per cent increase for doing 50 per cent more work. President Gompers in his address be fore the American federation of labor scored President Eliot of Harvard for calling a strike-breaker a hero, Gomp ers believing that a strike-breaker is "an economic outcast" Eleven aldermen in Denver have been cited for contempt and arrested at the instance of District Judge Mul lins for voting for an ordinance grant ing a franchise to the Denver city tramway company after they had been served with an injunction forbidding the passage of the ordinance as drawn. Poor Teddy. After days of trying he failed to get even a shot at a bear during his recent hunt at Smedes, Miss. A. M. Lesser, a special agent of the government land department, was in Omaha a day or two ago and declared that Col. Mosby's sensational stories about fraudulent homestead entries in Nebraska are simply "hot air." Citizens of South Omaha are agitat ing the question of a charter revision thi3 winter. Congressman Stark of the Fourth Nebraska district has gone to Wash ington to attend a conference on the militia bill which is now pending. He takes his defeat philosophically. Beyond a doubt the tendency of an indirect tax, especially a tariff on im ports, levied with a view to "protec tion." is to create consolidation and combination. But The Independent cannot agree that this is the only fac tor In building up trusts, or, In fact, the most potent. Given, two manufac turing concerns both protected by the same tariff why should one kill off the other? Why should one absorb the other? Suppose originally one has twice the capital of the other will mere mass of capital do the work? The Independent does not believe so. In this it is supported by such econ omists and sociologists as Professor Ely. What, then, does give one the power to ruin and absorb the other? Chiefly an advantage in facilities for distributing its products. In othei words, railroad freight discrimina tions. The "Single O" at Monte Carlo does not prevent an occasional plunger from winning but it gives the "house" a percentage of advantage which in the long run ruins everybody else. The "lily whites" of the south got a body blow when the president re moved from office Julian H. Bingham, collector of Internal revenue for the district of Alabama, for expelling fully qualified and registered negroes from the state convention of the republican party of Alabama. There are a few hundred colored men in Alabama who, notwithstanding the provisions of the new const. ution which was designed to exclude most of the negro vote, are entitled to the franchise. It was men such as these that the southern re publicans drove out of the convention and arbitrarily erased their names from the list of delegates. This action shows that these southern republicans are true sons of the old gang of carpet baggers who went down there just af ter the war and proceeded to add sev eral degrees to General Sherman's definition of war.
