TWO SLID TO DEATH. TERRORIZED WHOLE CITY Five Maniacs Killed One and Injured Nine Others at Elvas, Portugal ATTACK EVERYBODY WITH BARS OF IRON The Lunatics Were Released from Burning Insane Asylum Says Some Conscienceless Man Put Whole Country in Flames. Could Woodrow Wilson says he would like to take a census of busness men as to whether they think the organization of business in this country is satisfactory or not. ; He believes that "if they could vote secretly they would vote over whelmingly that it wus meant to shut out beginners, to prevent new entries in the. race, to prevent the building up of competitive enterprise that would inter fere with the great monopolies which the great trusts have built up." ' Above everything else he says, the country' needs "a body of law, which will look after the men who are on the make ratber than the men who are al 'ready made, .Because the men who are 'already made are not going to live in definitely, and they are not always kind 'enough to leave sons as able and honest 'as they arc." These sentences are from "The Xew I Freedom a call for the aiuancipation of 1 the geenrous energies of a people," the ! first of a series of articles which the I president-elect has written for the ! World's Work, diagnosing American ills land setting forth his political creed and (purposes. He says that our government i has been for the past few years .wder i the control "of beads of great allied cor porations with special interests." As a i result "there have grown up vicious sys tems and schemes of governmental fav oritism (the most obvious being the ex travagant tariff), far reaching in effect upon the whole fabric of life, touching to his injury every inhabitant of the land, laying unfair and impossible handicaps upon competitors, imposing taxes in every direction, stifling everywhere the J free spirit of American enterprise." I He feels that this has come abort naturally and '"that it is no use de nouncing anybody or anything except human nature." Some conscienceless man with eloquent tongue could put this whole country into flame, Gov. Wilson says. Don't you know," he asks, 'that this country from one end to the .it'ier believes that something is wrong Whnt an opportunity it would be, for some man without conscience to spring up ard say, 'This is the way. Follow- met' and lead in paths of destruction." Society, Gov. Wilson thinks, is ready for radical reconstruction, "which only frank and honest counsels and the forces of generous cooperation can 'hold bii-k from becoming a revolution." He'?ays that revolution will come peacefully, "as it came when we put aide the crude government of the Confederation s'nl created the great Federal I'nion." Soni? radical changes must be made in law and practice, calmly and soberly. "The whole stupendous progr.un.' Gov. Wilson writes, "must be publicly planned and canvassed. Kod temper,' the wisdom that eouir-s of sober counsel, the energy of thoughtful anil unselfish men. the habit of cooperation and com promise which lias Wen bred in us by long years of free government in whi;h reason rather than passion has 'icen made to prevail by the sheer virtue of candid and universal debate, will enable t'S to win through to still another great age without violence." The pre-ident-elot finds that our ec-i-nomie condition have changed absolute ly in twenty years and the old formulas do n't fit. Laws regarding the relatione of employers ami employed, for instance, "are in many respects w holly antiquated nd iniMMisible." To (iov. Wilson the corporation grind ers are riot themselves heart les. "but ve are all caught in a great economic system which is heartless." Jf a workman, say the governor by way of illustration, is hurt by machin ery whirh bis superintendent directed him to use lie cannot get damages le ru the courts have held that the sup erintendent is a fellow employee. iiv, Wil-Min aJda: "When I hear jndgea reason upon the analogy of the relationship that used to exist between workmen and their em ployers a generation ?o I wonder if thev have mt op-neJ their eyes to the modern world. You know we have a rifcht to expect that judges will l-jve their evi open, een through the law bich they administer basa't awakene!."' Boys Were Drowned at Ashland, Mass., Yesterday.
