A GROWING MENACE.
We have been introducing to the
country the same relations that ex
ist in Europe between capital and
labor, and here as there we see with
indifference the gulf widen between
the-Tery rich and the Ten poor.
While a greedy few roll in untold
wealth ana millionaires multiply, the
mass of laborers sink day by day to
that low level of class servitude that
makes life a misery in a mere strug
gle for a wretched existence.
Some night your full-stomached
millionaire will be awakened by
gaunt-eyed labor and bidden to come
out and render up not only his ill'
gotten possessions but life itself.
And then the helpless creature will
realize that he aided to import only a
pirtof the European system. The
art of accumulating unearned capital.
and the subtile powers of bringing
about a class of the few who produce
nothing while enjoying all, and an
other class of the many who produce
all and epjoy nothing, is a duplicate
of the pnnce-and-pauper existence of
Europe. But it is without the vast
standing armies, tho millions of cruel
bayonets, the closed ranks and disci
plined and drilled hirelings under
arms, that hold the autocracy up and
the toiling millions down.
Cincinnati has awakened to this
fact and had a panic. Cinoinnati
wanted the twenty-three assassins
hanged. For weeks tho press and
pulpit had bestirred themselves on
this subjeot, with a leaning to mob
violence. But when the mob got up,
after such instigations, and went to
plundering gun-stores, the thought
flashed like an electric light through
the conservative mind: "Suppose
these rioters go to cricking other
places our homes? Great God what
can we do? We have not oven a po
lice!'' And so they made the wires
tremble with hysterical telegrams for
troops; not to hang murderers cher
ished thought of the day before but
to shoot down the very men they had
stirred into active violence. The con
dition of Cinoinnati in this respect is
the same as that of any other great
commercial center in the United
The other day, a gang of long
haired and wild-eyed communists of
New York determined to hold v mass
meeting of probably two hundred in
one of the parks. Immediately a
panic occurred- the police were sum
moned, the military notified to be in
readiness. New York was threaten
ed. And now the leading journals
assert that but for this preparation
the two hundred communists would
have taken and plundered New York.
These full-stomached millionaires
need not worry themselves about the
communists. The danger threatening
them is far more formidable. It Is
not from beer-drinking dreamers but
from .the great mass of labor, wnen
the poverty at the door enters the
hovel and drives the starving inmates
out 'as famished wolves are driven
into towns at the end of a hard winter.
So far the laborers of the town have
been held to their hard tasks by the
conservative power of the agricultur
ists that heavy, dull, almost dead
weieht of solitary-wrought mass of
ignorance and egotism. But th fatted
monopolists have been cutting their
foundation from under tneir feet.
For twenty-five years, holding control
of the general government, they have
been legislating against foreign trade
so as to buildup monopolies at home.
This with agriculture the underlying
foundation of not only our commer
cial prosperity but our very existence!
Ten cents above the cost of raising a
bushel of wheat means well-being;
ten oents below means distress and
this is guaged at Liverpool when our
wheat is sold.
Of course this sort of legislation
has been unpleasant to Europe, as it
hltTbeen unprofitable to us, and for
u', and 'for years search has been
made for the produce on the sale of
which we have prospered. England
has been to this end developing her
wheat fields in India, Australia and
Egypt. The first returns of wheat
oome, in quantity and quality to feed
all Europe, immediately on the heels
of a prohibition of pork from America
to France, Italy and Germany. They
are seeking to protect their pork as
we protect our pig iron, and wheat
drops to eighty-six cents a bushel, and
all other produce in proportion.
If this sort of thing is persisted in
theagriculturist, who is slow of study,
will discover that he is threatened
with, starvation, and must come down
to the goat skin coat and $18 a year
peculiar to.the Baltic
Then, when the grass is growing on
curtreets, the railroad ties rotting
wider our -unused railroads, and tho
farmers are forced to raise only what
they eat, and wear only what they
manufacture at home, dropping in
a'i respects to the level of the like
class in -Europe, the monopolist (the
cause of all this .decay) may as well
comeout and "be hanged like a gen
tleman. Do not understand me as advoca
ting vio loe. I only undertakte to
give you the facts as I see them. As
a scientist takes a live pest from the
EeSdbf a beggar and, crowding down
his disgust, pins the vermin under the
microscope and puts the thing to
record-for the sake of science, so I

forxexample, and dissect for a like
purpose; for one is as siokening as

Col. James A.Boggs, deputy United
States collector in New York city,
who has held the office for many
Tears, says: "If you know any young
man who wants an omce, tell nun
rather to buy a shovel and go to work
on a dirt heat. I always tell such
men the. story of Salmon P. Chase

The bustling, hurrying man, as a
matter of fact, is a poor worker. Too
much of his steam power is expended
in kicking up dust. Tho habit of
hurrying and of feeling in a hurry is
fatal to good work and diminishes
the amount of work a good man can
do. The friction is too great. So
little of practical value is. accom
plished that he cannot go home at
night with a sweet consciousness of a
duty done, of a day's work com
pleted. The men who accomplish
most never seem in a hurry, no mat
ter how much they have to do. They
are not troubled for lack of time, for
they make tho most of the minutes
by working-in a cool, methodical man
ner, finishing each job properly and
not expending their nervous force in
bustle. They never complain of over
work, but are more likely to hunt up
new work in order to give their facul
ties more varied employment and to
exercise some which are not suffi
ciently used. Herald of Health.

At Big Springs, Texas, the earl of
Aylesford has been slopping so long
tuat it seems like home to him, and
the inhabitants have ceased to foel
any awe of him. He has just bought
a well-stocked ranch, paying for it
875,000, his avowed intention being
to provide for his younger brother.
The entailed estate is 818,000,000 of
which by virtue of his birth ho is the
heir, yields him an income from
which ho is enabled to mako these :
Texas investments. His latest trans
action at the Springs was the pur
chase of a hotel.
