Growth of Socialism Attributed to
High Tariff; Free Trad Will
Probably Be Battle Cry of
Poor People.
BEBLIX, June I. (Special.) Ger
many It experiencing the difficulty ot
reconciling labor Insurance with tbe
professional and economic Interests of
doctors. The trouble bas been going
on for 10 years, but It has now come
to crisis at a result of the Imperial
Insurance law of last year, which to
extends the benefit! of tick Inturanct
that the number of Insured will rlee
from about 14.000.000 to 20.000.000.
The coalition of sick bureaus and the
Letpsig union or doctors, which It
practically a trade union, Issue man!
featot against one another; and there
are threats ot open war between the
two Interests at the beginning ot nest
Fere aad Etklra Involved.
Tbe "onfllct It one of fees, politics
and professional dignity. The original
sick Insurance law of 1891 did not reg
ulate ' the relations between the tick
bureaua and the doctors. The bureaus
were at first run in the dominant po
litical Interest, and doctors were chosen
for political or other motives. It was
a common complaint that In country
districts they were obliged to pose as
Conservatives. They were very badly
paid and arbitrarily treated.
Twenty years ago a movement was
atarted In favor of "free choice of
doctors" by the sick persons them
selves. This was attained by the bu
reaut putting to many doctora on tbelr
llstt that the patients had practlcaily
unlimited choice among the doctora In
their neighborhood. Tele pleased tbe
insured, who were able to choose medi
cal advisers In whom they had confi
dence; but It has worked Indifferently
from the administrative and financial
points of view.
While this change was taking place
the tick bureaut fell almost entirely
under the control of the Social Demo
crats. After 180. when Bismarck's ao
clallet law was allowed to drop, the
Socialists had freedom to propagandise;
and they used their two-thirds major
ity on the bureaus' executive commit
tees In order to monopolise the slok In
surance. The Socialist bureaus con
tinued, however, the old policy. They
treated the doctora badly, paid them
worse, and tried, sometimes with suc
cess, to convert them to socialism.
Phya Ideas gaffer If amlliatloa.
The doctors were subjected to various
humiliating condition. Sometimes bu
reau doctors received less than a penny
a consultation. Cases are recorded of
doctors employed In tbe clinics kept up
by the bureaut getting salaries of from
1400 to $800 a year. In return for which
they received from 9000 to 15.000 pa
tients. The new Insurance law contains sev
eral measures Intended to break the
domination ot the Socialists In the tick
bureaus. But it does not regulate the
relations between the doctors and the
bureaus. The bureaus are tree to ap
point their own doctors, leaving the In
sured a choice between at least two,
or to leave the Insured complete free
dom of choice. The non-regulation of
the matter by law has caused great dis
content, because the Interests of the
bureaus and of the doctors are flatly
The doctors, have lost much of their
private work, and have failed to get
compensation through their employment
as bureau doctors. That results from
the fact that the power la entirely on
the side of the bureaus, which take ad
vantage of the eevere competition be
tween' doctors to pay them and treat
them badly.
floclallsaa Grows Tariff.
The "Austrian j5conomle Union" has
annt out a long statement on the failure
of the high tariff, which dealt mainly
with the relatione of Austria and Hun
gary; but In two passages touches tbe
relation of Socialism to protection. The
Union declares emphatically that the
high tariff la the main cause of the
growth of Socialism, both In Austria
and Germany: and that if the rlgore of
protection are not abated Socialism will
further triumph. The statement says
"It Is high time' to break gradually
with the overstrained high protection
policy; and first ot all to meet the Inter
ests of National nourishment and also
of the stock farmers by reducing the
high duties on corn.
"Such a wise gradual reduction of
the present high protection system must
recommend Itself all the more, because
It Is the International rise In food prices
which drives the Immense masses of
the working class, and also the work
ing middle class. Into battle against the
'agrarian usurers' who. despite this nat
ural rise In prices, demand also hlgtv
protective duties; and It la this which
at every fresh Relcharat election causes
a devastating advance of the Social
Democratlo party.
Proteevfoa la Doomed.
"It Is. therefore, wiser for the far
sighted politician to give way volun
tarily on one or another point rather
than be forced finally to surrender all
along the Una. and to abandon even the
minimum of protection,' which is ..still
eesentlal In order to protect stock
against diseases from abroad.
"It cannot be Ignored that present
social conditions, which have got so
aggravated that the working classes
tclty dwellers and workmen on one side
and food-producing farmers on the oth
er), are now engaged in a war of an
nihilation, cannot be maintained In the
future. Such a condition makes It Im
possible to pursue a genuine national
policy, for a national policy must be for
all classes and for all Interests."
The statement says that "the fright
ful rise In prices has driven the workers
Into fierce conflict." and predict that If
the high-protection system It main
tained, the Social Democrats will tri
umph altogether, and will then enforce
measures which will ruin agriculture.
"If. as a result of the fearful emblt
terment of the consumer and of the In
crease of Social-Democracy the Social
Democrats are able to push their pro
gramme through, that will entail a cat
astrophe for our agriculture, and most
of all for the peasant-farmers."
Further on the statement repeats that
high protectionists' policy will "turn the
Industrial half of the Austrian peoples
Into embittered opponents, and aend
them entirely Into the camp of the antl.
capitalistic and antl-protectlonlst Social-Democrats.
Let them reflect what
a fascinating party cry the word Free
Trade' would prove for all classes who

wireless telegraphy were tried In Paris
April 17 during an eclipse of the sun.
It baa been noticed by scientists that
the distances over which wireless mes
sages can be dispatched varies greatly
according to the time of day and the
direction. A message aent by rapid vi
brations, which will not carry more
than 700 miles during the day, ean be
tent over twice that distance at tun-
set, especially toward the aouth. When
slower vibrations are used It can be
transmitted farther tn tbe daytime. It
It believed that these curious facts
are due to the. activity of the so-called
ultra-violet rays of jthe sun, the theory
being that these rays are a powerful
factor In the energy of the Hertzian
waves. The eclipse, when a great part
of these rays were suddenly cut off.
proved an ideal occasion for decisive
tests, and the wireless station on the
Eiffel tower tent messages continu
ously from a little before the eclipse
until a little after it, in . several di
rections. The conclusions to be drawn
from theae experiments are awaited
with keen interest.
Tbe Crack Constabulary That Keeps
the Green Ielo Quiet.
Christian Science Monitor. .
The royal Irish constabulary lsnow
highly disciplined body of men. bear
ing an excellent character. The force
la spread over the whole face of the
country. In a web of which every thread
centers In Dublin. Being a quasi-mili
tary force they are armed with . ayo
neta, carbines, pistols and ewords, and
have to perform very varied duties.
On January 1. 1837. there were 15
county Inspectors, 210 dtstrtrt Inspectors,-
7388 sergeants and constables, and
tn 1911. 17 county Inspectors. 187 dis
trict inspectors. 22S head constables,
10.260 sergeants and conatables.
Many things have happened In Ire
land since the present constabulary
force waa established in 1838. and
great changes have taken place In Its
social and political conditions. Tbe
royal Irish constabulary has through
out these changes held the respect and
confidence of all classes la Ireland, and
It haa been consistently honored by the
approbation of the sovereign end his
responsible ministers, entirely Irre
spective of social or political caangee.
The depot of the royal irisn ronstao-
ulary Is in Phoenix Park. Dublin, where
the royal Irish constabulary cadets re
ceive their training. Put It It n6t
alone the training ground for the royal
Irish constabulary, for. In 1807. It was
arranged by the colonial office with
the Irish authorities tnat an ponce
officers of commissioned rank In the
crown colonies must undergo a period
of Instruction at the royal Irish con

the facilities for learning everything
connected with their future profession.

Its kind ever held In the state of Idaho.
Under a brilliant and warm aun the
roses tor the last two weeks came out
In splendid beauty, and the exhibition
of roses, say visitors, waa the finest
ever teen in this part of the North

ami were graciously "granted permis

K' seat' here the employes csme out In
a body, with the rebuilt that bosrdera
liait to cook their own breakfasts snd
make their own bc!s. Over 60 hotels
were affected, besides many boarding
houses, restaurants and eating houses.
There were som disorderly scones, and
d'isplte the efforts of the police, dam-
ko was Inflicted on the premises of
certain uneympnthetto employers. t
Headed by the women, msnv of
whom are said to have been "Intoxi
cated with excitement," the strikers
paraded the streets and boldly Invaded
ItotulM where non-unionists were em
ployed. Home of theao were forcibly
removed from the buildings. In one
hotel the crowd psrtlally wrecked tha
dining room, rnlded the kitchen and
pantry and consumed a quantity ot
food provided for customers. What
they could not eat they sprinkled with
pepper or strewed on the tioor. One
hotelkoeper who lied slimed the union
log was vbllKeil to discharge Ills lar
muM. to whom he was giving union
wages, because she did not belong to
the union, on the second day of the
strike several hotel cloned their doors.
All Iho non-union houses were pick
eted and were denied supplies of meat,
bread and Ice.
In Australia It Is becoming usual In
those cases to Invoke the "sympathetic
strike" as a means of bringing recal
citrant employers to their senses, and
snch pre-ieure was duly exercised at
Hroken Hill. While steps were taken
to prevent the Incursion of "blacklegs'
from Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide,
other local unionists combined to make
matters as uncomfortable s possible
for the hotel keepers. The Hread
Carters' t.'nton forbsda their members
to deliver bread to the picketed prem

week as a waiter or barman, while an

asked by the) lenders are utterly un
workable and unfair. For example, we
are told that we must engage our
hands only through the union officials.
We are quite willing to employ union
