The foundation prhici-!in the developmenj of polilionl dom- ples of religious demoncracy can be trnoed back to the teachings of the Greek philosophers and the Hebrew projUliots.

The causes which impelled him to formulaic his doolaration of indepondenco may bo ocracy and here again thoy have rawed to build uj) one big union. Hero again democracy makes for variety.

This democratic religion repu diated 4.I10 old priesthood, hut ero long there aroso a now priostlinod, moro autocratic than tho old. The high priest on the Tiber cjalms au thority ovor men's destiny hero and in tho Ihercafter; ho makes and un makes kings and emperors at. will; ho divides tho healhen world bc twoen two of bis kings! After cenlurios of'slumboring, re ligious democracy awakens; Luther and Wycliffe and Huss and scores of others contribute somothng to "lliis awakening.

For some reason cause, ought In teach llio human Wo should not bo surprised to find "internationals" in tho develop ment of industrial democracy and wo will not bo surprised if they, too fail lo build up "one big union. Here again democracy makes for va riety. We. are not surprised to havo "oil trusts" and "packor trusts" and "steel trusts" and "chambers of com merce,' and "The American Fedora- lion of Labor," and "The American Farm Bureau Federation," and hero again, within these groups, where there is the most domocracy thoro is also the most variety. The development of democracy along all Hirco lines depends upon llio holding in check of tho common human tendency lo lord it over our fellow mon and the overcoming of mo human tendency lo give unques Honed obedienco to our "superiors. Priests and kings and captains of industry aro equally human in this respect. Religious obedience and no litical obedionce and industrial obe dienco aro about equally persistent.

"Render unto Ca'oear the things that are Caesar s." But after the Middle Ages when now aspirations for religions democracy worn awakoned, new aspirations for political democracy were also born. Englishmen wrested their Magna Charla from an unwilling king and Amorica wrote hor Declaration of Independence. That was only the beginning of Amorican political aem- . ocracy. At first lAmericnn democra cy was for "a new while-skinned Amoricans 01 llio male persuasion, who could nioasuro up to various other qualifications. Theso few did not evenXruit themselves to vote di - rootly for presidents and senators and judge. Later on, property and othor required qualifications wero TflJTlOVOd. Tho Civil War oxlended the blessings of political domocraey to men wtiose complexions had been tanned by long exposure to tho Af rican, sun. And only a year ago the blessings of political democracy were placed within the reach of the other half of the American people. Polit ical domocracy has not yet pene lfale1 to every nook and corner of our social structure, yet all will agree-'that political democracy is ifclrly well established here in Amer ica. THe third democracy is industrial damqaracy. When despotism, under the guise "of a priesthood, was kicked out,uf the back door 11 got hack in a tho front door in The form of a stately kthg I When despot Kin, in I he form of a king was kicked out at Hie' bark ijoor, it sneaked buck into Hie par lor as a worthy Captain of Industry! : W have trampled under foot 1 1 "divine rujlbt' of the prion! hood, . and the dKiw righto" of the kings; -it 1 now remains for us to tramplo under foot the "divine righw of the Almighty Dollar Human nature is much the same at all times and in all. places. There are mauy parallelisms between these three line of aapiiaUoo after lib erty and democracy. Understanding the past should tbelp us use the pres ent and prepare for the future. There have been "inUrnalionala" race something of value. Becauso it has taken Iwenty-fivo bloody cen lurios to bring about, religious dem ocracy and five bloody centuries In bring about political democracy, it, does not follow that it should fako many bloody centuries to establish industrial democracy. Wo will not oxpect a political vic tory of a beautiful party platform lo bring aboul immediate industrial democracy any moro than tho Dec laration of Indepondenco brought about woman's suffrage iir the I8II1 century No man is wise enough lo sit in his study ami write up a system of industrial democracy that will work in all its details. industrial dem ocracy, like the other democracies, must, bo "worked out." Working out industrial democracy will dovolon wonderful variety perhaps later .on some kind of democratic unity will grow out of democratic varialy, just as a creed for all Chrislendom or a League of Nations for all the world may somo day bo a reality. No one typo of industrial democracy will nt proseni nt all industries. We have communistic schools anil highways, government, owned postoffice sys tern, government regulated railroads, co-operative marketing associations, ro-oporntive farms and factories. capitalistic unions. labor "unions, and agricultural '"unionx," all seek ing industrial democracy in some form for some classes. To my mind tho greatest oppor tunity to advance the cause of in dustrial democracy is open lo tho American Farm Bureau. C. E. ANDERSON.
