Wright Confutes Baer.
Chicago Record-Herald: Now that
Labor Commissioner Wright's report
is published no valid reason appears
why it should not have been publish
ed before, but it conies out fortun
ately just in time to confute or weak
en the statements made by President
Baer to Senators Quay and Penrose.
Baer assumes that the contentions
of the operators as regards wages,
conditions of employment, etc., are
incontrovertible" sound, and that the
questions involved do not admit of
arbitration. Wright going into some
of the particulars of the dispute,
says that it would be reasonable and
just for the operators to concede a
nine-hour day at once, that where
mining is paid for by the ton pro
vision should be made at once for the
appointment of two weighing inspec
tors, one representing the miners, the
other operators. He suggests that an
independent union should be formed
by the anthracite workers, but also
that it should be affiliated with other
great labor organizations'and that a
permanent board of conciliation
bhould be established by this body
and the operators. In opposition to
Baer, who affects a great concern for
' "" ' " "'
individuals, he advocates the making
of collective bargains relative to
wages, time and other conditions.
. The report being that of a disinter
ested person who has gone through a
great mass of testimony indicates
that Baer's assumptions are tinteiv
able, that the miners have real griev
ances, that arbitration would have
been the sensible wav of considering
the differences between miners am;
operators. Baer says "you cannot ar
bitrate a question of wages when an
increase will destroy the business and
a decrease will be unacceptable to
the workingmen." He also says you
cannot arbitrate concerning the man
agement of a business and the pro
tection of property. In this way he
slurs over the general list of griev
ances without proving his point. Thi
question of wages is the only one
that he meets specifically, but he is
far from showing that an increase
really would destroy business, and
when he speaks of the workingman's
objection to a decrease it should be
remembered that the workingmeii
were willing to submit all questions
Finally, as Commissioner Wright
declares, it was not intermeddling ag'
itators from the outside who precipi
tated the strike, but the miners
themselves. And while the men have
beeji animated by a natural desire to
bet'er their condition it is by no
means certain that the strike is un
acceptable to Mr. Baer and his asso
ciates, who assert that thev can mar
ket only 00 per cent of the capacity
of their mines. k ;
Assessing of State Employes.
A few weeks ago Dr. Corbus told of
the "voluntary contributions" for po
litical purposes of the employes of
the Kankakee hospital. Last week
Dr. Whitman told of the "voluntary
contributions" made to him bv th
employes of the Elgin institution. Dr.
Corbus said he sent his collections ii
an unnamed member of the state cen
tral committee. Dr. Whitman was
more specific. He said he sent his to
A. I.. French, who is not a member of
the committee, but is a railroad and
warehouse commissioner. If Mr.
French will say how much money h
received from Dr. Whitman ami the
superintendents of other state insti
tutions, when he received it, and what
he did with it. he will confer a favor
upon the public, says the Chicago
Tribune. Or. rather, he will dis
charge a duty to the public, for the
fact ought not tn be forgotten that
the money Dr. Whitman sent Mr.
French is public money anil the peo
ple should know what has become
What is the political use to which
that money, alleged to be contributed
for political purposes, has been put?
There have been no elections in this
state of any importance for nearly
two years, or since Mr. McKinley was
elected to the presidency. What has
been the occasion for the extortion
of large sums of ' money from the
employes of the state?' For what
purposes have the assessments, eu
phemistically called "voluntary con
tributions," been expended? How has
the money been spent for the benefit
of the party, if thus spent? The
state central committee has not been
active. Its duties have lieen dis
charged by commission, without au
thority from the whole committee or
the executive committee, so far as
appears. The functions of the chair
man and secretary have been usurp
ed. Money has been collected and
used in a manner not known to any
responsible person inside or outside
The inference is irresistible that it
has been used at the primaries to
elect certain men delegates to the
state convention and to prevent the
election of certain other men as del
egates. It has been used to bring
about particular legislative nomina
tions and to prevent other, nomina
tions. In brief, it has been used for
factional purposes, not for party pur
poses. To what extent can the levying of
contributions upon men who are en:
ployes of the state, and who repre
sent all the people of the state and
not merely the republican party or a
faction of that party, be justified.
even if the money be expended in a
manner looked on in party councils
as legitimate? It is well known that
.considerable sums are ra'ised during
a presidential campaign and are prop
erly expended. They are used to hir.i
halls, pay for expenses of speakers,
music, printing, etc. vBtit how can
money be properly levied on employes
of the state before nominations have
been made and expended at primaries,
in caucuses, and conventions, and in
influencing the nomination of candi
dates for state offices or for the leg
islature? These are questions some of 'which
the organization managers will have
difficulty, in answering. In propor
tion to their difficulty will be the
censure that is likely to be visited
upon them by the people at the ap

"Winthrop came down to the Iilakos

ever he came where I was he found
me buried in a book. At last he grew
