MONDAY, JULY 7, 1902.
Pennsylvania democrats have en
tered upon the. campaign in that
state, standing upon a platform
made up of state issues. In short,
they have but one issue in that state,
Matt Quay and his notorious gang
"Of political freebooters, who feed up
on the people of Pennsylvania, fear
ing nothing, doing nothing because
overwhelmingly entrenched in power
by republican votes. If the demo
crats, assisted by a large number of
independents, can inspire the confi
dence of the people in - their good
intentions they may be successful at
the polls; otherwise Matt Quay will
continue to boss Pennsylvania's po
litical hen roost.
The fact of the matter is, the dem
ocrats need to prove to the voters
that they are in earnest, really sin
cere in their effort to oust the ras
cals out of office. The voters have
tired of the senseless attempt in past
years to prove a difference between
tweedledee and tweedledum, to make
a half-dozen appear more than six,
and, as the result, have tired of ap
peals and grown dull to duty.
But a good time is coming for dem
ocrats who respect their promises,
who believe in democracy and have
an abiding faith in equal rights and
free institutions. If for once the
democrats can prove they are in
earnest and have capacity for ac
complishing something for the peo
ple and good government, even just
a little more than republicans ac
complish, they may have ground for
hope to serve the people and, in serv
ing them, build up and uphold a
grander and Btronger republic.
Do something! the people will be
quick to appreciate performance.
There is a great opportunity for
earnest, honest endeavor in Penn
sylvania., No political rascal can con
tend against the force of' conviction
and the spirit born of sincerity, back
of a desire to treat a public office as
a public trust!
servers, whom the people are slow to
call to account and who feed and
thrive upon the people, as always
does the hnavo at -the expense of the
fool. When the voter is more Intelli
gent in the use of his vote, and less
devoted to his party as a blind fol
lower of it, the government of his
state and the general condition of so
ciety will be elevating and not on
the down grade.
The gist of the matter is, the voter
fails miserably to realize his re
sponsibilities and his state suffers in
HOW TO KILL MONOPOLY.
WHERE THE FAULT LIES.
One convict with a Winchester rifle
and a determination to do and to die
game seems to bo more than enough
for an army of sheriffs, deputies, po
licemen and marshals.
Those persons responsible for pro
viding Tracy and Merrill with fire
arms, with which they escaped from
the Oregon penitentiary at Salem,
are greater criminals In the light of
what has happened since, than the
two cut-throats and murderers them
selves. The lax methods In vogue at the
penitentiary at Salem, and the polit
ical system which bred them, were
aids to all the murder the brace of
rascals have committed.
And there are none more responsl-.
ble for the whole ''dreadful mess,"
than the voters of Oregon, who vote
a party Into office year after year re
gardless of the character of Its per
formances. Were the voters more exacting and
less addicted to partisan action at
the polls, changing servants as fre
quently as tho party proved derelict
to duty, thero would bo better gov
ernment and less burden of govern
ment, with a corresponding interest

, Tracy and Merrill's crimes can be
traced to the doors of Indolent and
HacoaacieHtlous politicians and time
The Springfield Republican, com
menting on the strike of tho hard
coal miners and calling attrition to
the wide disturbance it is creating
in trie industrial world, says:
"Meantime tho party of the largest
interest in the affair remains uncon
sulted. The people at large and
their concerns have not come into
consideration. Neither side as yet
has even condescended to make a
statement of grievances, or argument
of justification, Unit it is to be said
for the miners that have been offered
to refer the cause to an impartial ar
bitration, which the operators re
fuse to do. And yet the latter are in
possession of a limited store of na
ture which is essential to the gen
eral industry of the country in warm
seasons and to tho life of the people
in cold. Persons holding a monopoly
like that are in no position to say
they are' entitled to do as they please
and neither party to the controversy,
for that matter, can say it is none of
the public's business.
"It is very much the public's busi
ness, and if the public had been as
deeply alive to the possibilities such
as are at present being realized, it
would now be in a position to enforce
a judgment respecting its superior
concern in the case. As It Is, the
country and its government will
stand by helplessly while the storm
of industrial war sweeps devastating
ly through it. But the disturbance
will compel thought among the peo
ple, and at the end two questions
will come to be asked more frequent
ly than they are now: (1) Why
should labor and capital be permit
ted to engage in destructive wars of.
this kind when there are ways to.
prevent them, as through cumpulsory
arbitration voluntary arbitration
having again conspicuously proved
its futility? ad (2) why Bhould exclu
sive private monopoly of natural re
sources so essential to tho life and
industry of the people as coal he suf
fered to exist?
A proper answer to tho second
question would .1i3o r.3 of the fiist.
There would be no war between "cap
ital and labor" If there were no exclu
sive private monopolies of natural re
sources. And It may bo add'id with
absolute coalldenr? that If all lai.d
were taxed to Its full value without
reference to improvements thero
would be and could bo no such thing
as an exclusive monopoly of natural
Compulsory arbitration Is a dan
gerous remedy. It Is essentially un
democratic and It Invade? tho right
of private contract In a way that ren
ders it highly offensive to men who
really believe in freedom. Evea
If there were no other remedy than
that of compulsory arbitration for
these wars wo should still prefer the,
disease to the proposed euro. Tho
disease is less likely to bo fatal to
liberty than tho remedy of state In
terference with private bus'ue33.
But compulsory arbitration is not
the only remedy. It Is not even the
best or tho least objectionable rem
edy. It has so many offensive feat
ures that to enumerate them would
be to go over tho whole category of
evils which result from Irresponsible
power and from paternalism. For
comnulsory arbitration Is tho very
culmination of paternalism and It
could be suggested only by men who
have been subjected to socialistic In
fluences and modes of thought. But
a resort to this-dangerous expedient
Is wholly .unnecessary. It Is oujy re
quired that it shall be made unprofi
table for men to hold valuable na
tural opportunities out of use and
tho problem solves itself. ,For if
workmen could employ themselves
minn unused natural resources when
'dissatisfied with the terms and con
ditions offered by tho employer, now
could there possibly arise a war bo
tweon tho capitalist and laborer?
How could tho former possibly cc
erco or-intimidate the latter? You
rnnnnt browbeat and tyrannize the
workman who controls his own Job
his own meanB of livelihood, it is
tho man who hns been cut oft from
his base of supplies that the terrors
of so-called "capitalism" pursue.
And so if wo would stop these
wars aud protect the rights of non-
combatants wo must free opportunity
by making it unprofitable to forstall
it. We can do this simply and easily,
without violence and with no touch
of Injustice. We can do It oven with
out any change of forms or tho crea
tion of any now machinery. Indeed
we may do it while yet simplyfylng
the machinery already In existence.
It is necessary only that we should
stop taxing labor and the products of
labor and tax the unimproved value
of land alone. If wo did this no one
would think of holding a foot of land
anywhere except for use. Coal com
panies would not dream under such
a system of forstalllng the coal which
generations yet unborn will require.
Nor would "capitalists" ever think
of grabbing for town sites and for
fertile farm lands ami for tracts of
timber. They would hold, no more
land than they required for actual
operations in production; and thus
millions unon millions of acres of
land now closed against labor would
be open to it on terms that would In
vite industry and offer rewards to en
Can you conciove that under such
free conditions there could be pre
sented spectacles such as those now
being witnessed in the hard coal re
gion? There 150,000 men are engaged
in a passive rebellion against the
power of monopoly. Monopoly itself
sits calmly behind its entrenchment
of legal privilege and bides the re
sult. It has nothing to lose. In the
end It expects to gain much. It ex
pects for one thing to gain higher
prices for Its product now in the
market. There is artificial scarcity
which Justifies an advance in price
For another thing it expects labor,
under the lash of hunger, to become
violent, to cease to bo passive, and
to become turbulent. Then will come
the state with armed troops to pro
tect monopoly In its privilege and to
drive labor into subjection. In tho
last analysis the hard coal barons
will win, no matter what may bo the
apparent result of the pending con
There is but one sure way of reach
ing them. And that is the simple
way. Make them pay full value of
their special privileges into the pub
lie treasury in lieu of all other taxes.
When you do this you will have end
ed wars like the one now on. Johns
