fight. No, not all, Harvey. Teddy
wants the job of herding monopoly's
lawmakers in the Unite:! States senate.
If, says tho St. Louis Republic, tho
rariouB socialistic organizations outside
the democratic party and the-ftision pop
ulists could he combined into one party
with the support of the more than a
million union workingtnen, it would im
mediately become a formidable factor in
national politics, controlling some states
and with the balance of power in many
others, Such a party is not an impos
sibility, but even a probability, before
the campaign of 1904,
Tub wealth of workers per capita in
1S50 was $'.'39.50; the nealth of workers
per capiu In 1900 was $184; tho wealth
of non-workers per capita in 1850 was
$1,293; the wealth of non-workers per
eapita in 1900 was $8,085. The wealth
of the non-workers per capita has de
creased $55.50 in 40 years. This is why
it is so often remarked that "the rich

Onr aim in the organization of tr tints,
tifton tho chief aim, is the fleecing of in
vestors of ti.eir savings through playing
on their cupidity and templing them to
buy watered and worthless securities
With this kopt in mind, much will be
clear that must otherwise be dark. The
(leecingot investors is a,much the ob
ject of trust promoters as the fleecing of
consumers through the charging of mo
nopoly prices or the fleecing of wage
earners through the forcing down of
8o Mohkton Frkwbn, one of the high-
tut English authorities on finance and
economics, in speaking of the prevailing
famine in India, Bays: "What India
needs Is not the shipment of grain, for
this iu plentiful In other districts, . in
spite of tho drouth. What India needs
is money to buy this grain." Three mil
lion of tho wretched natives have already
died of hunger because the food they
have wrested from mother nature is in
other liaiuR They die like (lies for lack
of money to buy back what they have
produced. That is capitalism cariied to
Tiikhk was a time when the republican
party put its tniBt in the people. Since
then it has put the people In its trusts.
There was a time when ils standards
were loll y and ennobling.. Its only stun
ilar J now is the Standard Oil. There
was a time when its ideals shone forth
iike precious gems through the dust and
heat of pttrty strife. Now, its ideals are
the party machine and the party cam
paign fund. Its battle cry years ago was
"Freedom and the Union," If credit be
jiven to one of its modern leaders, its
motto for 1901 Is "Gold and Glory." It
in a far cry from the raging tocsin of I860
to the buccaneer refrain of 19W; yet it
well typifies the shameful transforma
tion. To URiVD the republican papers, one
aould almost believe that Roosevelt was
the nominee for president. McKinley is
placed in the background, while Teddy
is brought forward on all occasions. It
looks like an attempt to cover up the
rotten administration of llanna with the
ar record of Roosevelt. But it is well
not to lose sigtit of the fact that Teddy's
vote in his own state fell considerably
short of McKinley ' vote two years be
fore. We shall see what we Bhall pee.
There seems to be growing opinion
among the voters of the country that we
need ft statesman, and not a soldier, at
the toad of the nation at this time. It
will be decided in November.

James D. Richardson, chairman of the
democratic national convention, ilvis

The ordinary annual expenditures of
the government averaged in President
Harrison's term $3111,291,323.
They averaged in President Cleve
land's second term $300,418,264.
They have averaged in President Mo

The cost of running the government is

nearly a hundred and twenty-four mil
lion dollars a year f ince McKinley was
inaugurated. And this is not accounted
for by the extraordinary disbursements
of war, which are not included in these
The outlay oi war is a separate matter
and it accounts for the increase of the
public debt by two hundred million dol

.4 TRUST'S COLD BLUFF.
The San Francisco Call explains how
the tobacco trust succeeded in bringing
the Los Angolee tobacco doalers to time.
The method of dictation is not limited
to the tobacco trust, but is applied with
varied degrees of boldness by all trusts
This Is the Ca l's account of the transac
" 'I'll give you just 15 minutes to stop
the sale of all outside tobacco and ban
die only the goods of the American To
bacco Company, said Herman Heyne
man, of this city, as he faced the tobacco
dealers of Los Angeles at a meeting in
that City a few days ago.
"Coolly pulling out his watch, Heyne
man noted the time, and, laying his
timepiece on tho table, proceeded to ex
plain his position more fully.
'"We want you to handle our goods,
and I haven't the time to argue the
question with you. If you do not agree
At once to do eo, all that I have to say is
that I have a carload of goods here and
35 men to sell them. If you do not agreo
within 15 minutes to handle our goods
exclusively, I'll set those men to work
and cut prices 50 per cent.'
"And the bluff worked. The dealers
came to time before the 15 minutes ex
pired and entered into an agreement to
handle exclusively the goods of the
American Tobacco Company, which Mr.
THE COST OF WAIi.
On March 11 last the World stated in
its news columns that tho war with
Spain and the Filipinos by the end of
this month would cost this country the
great sum of $424,814,500.
We now have the ollkial figures fur
nished by Senator Allison and Mr. Can-
nou in behalf of the aenata and house
apt ropriations committees. It turns
out that ihe World nndei estimated the
tiuth. The cost of these wars at the eud
of the fi"cal year, June 30, will be $482,
The World estimated that tho cost of
the Filipino war for 1901 would lie $125,
0iH),003. This also was an underesti
mate. The coBt of the war in 1901, it is
sa:d by the committed on appropriations,
will b $131,247,15"), and this is given as
a ''permanent annual appropriation."
By Ihe end of the fiscal year 1901 the
country will have expended in freeing
Cuba from Spain, in taking Porto Rico
and in seizing the Philippines, the Bum
of $(113,809,238. In addition we must
count as part of the cost the violation of
our plighted word, the denial of the
Declaration of Independence and the
constitution, our departure from repub-
ican traditions, our disappearance as a
peace power, our assumption of the role
of injustice and despotism, the lives and
health of American soldiers and the
shame of the Cuban postal scandals.

WHO HAS THE WEALTH.
One per cent of the population of this
country own more than half of the
wealth of Ihe nation.
Three families in New York city have
in their possession wealth enough to
build a line of cottages costing a ihou
eand ilollars each long enough to reach
around the world.
In 1896 the New York Tribune pub
lished a list of 4097 millionaires with
over ten billions of weallh. Today they
own not loss than twelve billions, or one
sixth of the total wealth oi the nation.
We produce in a year no less than
twenty to twenty-five billion dollars'
worth of wealth. One-fifth of this goes
to the wealth producers, two-fifths to
capital and two-filths to trie idle capital
ists. In 1899 the Carnegie Steel Company,
with a capital paid in of twenty mil
lions, made a net profit of twenty-one
millions, or over a hundred per cent.
The profit for this year is estimated to
be forty millions, Tho present value of
the company is over two hundred mil
lions. The capital stock of the Standard Oil
Company is a little over ninety-seven
millions. A short time ago th6 regular
quarterly dividend was paid, and also a
special cash dividend of seventeen mil
lions. Tho tock of thi& great trust is
quoted at (583 per share, or at a valua
tion of more than five hundred and
Seventy families in this country have
an average wealth of forty million dol
lars, Six men in New York city ubsolulely
control sixty thousa id miles of railroad.
Fifty families in this nation absolutely
control the entire commerce of the na
tion. Two men, Miller and Lux, of Califor
u.a, own fourteen million acres ot land
on the Pacific coast.
The Astor family owns six hundied
million dollars' worth of real estate in
New York city.
The plutocratic class, numbering, ac
cording to Thomas G. Shearman, 192,000
families, has an average wealth of $233,.
000 and a total wealth of $43,367,000,000
One hundred thousand people own
nearly all the land in Great Britain and
three fourths of all the wealth of the
V ABIES OF THE KA1L-1I.
A young man was going to Chicago to
get married, and he rode in the sleeping
car so that he would be nice and fresh
for the ceremony next day. But he was
unable to sleep, end when the young
woman saw his red eyes and what a gen
eral wreck he was, she thought he had
accumulated a jag and refused to marry
him, whereat he got his picture in the
paper for being dead.
Moral Always go to Chicago via the
North-Western Line and you will sleep
like a brick and be as fresh as a daisy
when you arrive.
