Unless producers may exercise
equal right of access to land, the
first mate rial for all production,
they stand unequal before the las-;
and if one man, though legal
IJiiTilege-pwr- to another, ia de-
prired of any part of the product
of his labor, justice does not reign.
. , The economic question, then, under
any government, relates to legal
privclege to monopoly, either of
the land or its products.
the non-existence of the
exclusive enjoyment of monoiolies
by some men monopolies in the
land, in money-issuing, in common
public works each producer would
retain hi entire product excepting
bis taxes. This end secured, there
would remain no politico-economic
problem excepting that of taxation.
w Of recent years the Swiss have
had notable success in preventing
from falling into private hands
certain monopolies that in uber
centuries take from the many to
enrich a few. Continuing to act
on the principles observed, they
must in time establish not only
- equal rights in the land but the
full economic as well as political
sovereignty of the individual.
LARD AJTO CLTM ATI.
Glance at the theatre ot the labor
, of this people. Switzerland, with
about 16,000 square miles, equals
in area one-third of New York.
Of ita territory, 30 percent wU.r
beds, glaciers, and sterile moun
tainsis unproductive. Fores is 1
cover 18 percent Thus but half
the country is good for crops or
pasture. The vsrious altitudes, in
which the climate ranges from that
of Virginia to that of Labrador,
are divided by agriculturists into
, three tone.QThe lower sone, in-
- eluding all lands below a level . of
2,600 feet above the sea, touches, st
Lake Magglore, iu the Italian can
ton of Ticino, Id lowest joint, 643
feet above 'the (ea. In this sone
are cultivated wheat, barley, and
oilier grains, laige crops of - fruit,
and the vine, the latter an abun
dant source of profit. The second
sone, within which lies the larger
part of the country, includes the
lower mountain ranges. Its al
titudes are from 2,500 to 5,000 feet,
it chief growth icat forests of
beech, larch, and pine. Above this
rises the Alpine sone, upon the
steep" slopes of which are rich
pastures, the highest touching
, ,10,000 feet, though tber commonly
reach but 8,000, where vegetation
becomes sparse and snow and
glaciers" begi 0. In these mounUins
a million and a hulf cattle, horses,
sheep, and goals are fed annually.
In all. Bwitserlacd is not fertile,
bat rocky, mountainous, and much
of it the greater part of the year
r'- Whatever the individual qual
ities of the Swiss, their political
.v srcavntemajnU have had a large
influence in promoting the national
well-being. This becomes evident
' with investigation. Observe how
they have placed under public
control monopolies that in other
countries breed millionaires:---

Of railroads ttiere are nearly
2,000 miles. Their contruotion
and operation have been left to
private enterprise, but froin ilie
firl the Confederation, has asserted
a control over them that bat
stopped short only of management.
Hence there are no duplicated
lines, no discriminations iu rates
no cities at the mercy I railroad
corporations, no industries favored
by railrofid managers and none
dectrpyed. The government pre
scribes the location of a proposed
line, the time within which it niut
he built, the maximum tariffs for
freight and pa$enger, the mini
mum number of trains to be run,
and the tonditions of purchase in
cie the f late ct any time should
decide to assume pwa'oo. Pro
vision is made that when railway
s.i ruings exceed a certain ratio to
:apiUl invested, the surplus shall
be subjected to a proportionately
increased ta. Engineers of the
post oJice department superintend
the construction and repair of the
railroads, and postofTice inspectors
examine and pass upon the time
table,' tariffs, agreements, and
methods of the companies. Hence
falsification of reports is prevented,
stock watering 'and exchange
gambling are hampered, and
"wrecking," as practiced in the
United State, is unknown.
Owing to tunnels, cuts, and
bridges, the construction of the
Swiss railway system has been
costly; Mulhall's statistics give
Switzerland a higher ratio of rail
way capital to population than any
other country in Europe. Yet the
service is cheap, passenger tariffs
being considerably less than in
Franco and Great Britain, and,
about the same as iu Germany,
within a shade as low as the lowest
Differing from tiie narrow com
partment railway carriages of other
European countries the passenger
cars of Snittcrland are generally
built on the American plan, so that
the traveler is enabled to view the
scenery ahead, behind, and on
both sides. For circular tours, the
companies make a reduction of 2-5
percent on the regular fare. At
the larger stations are interpreters
who speak English. Unliko the
service in other continental coun
tries, third class cars are attached
to all trains, even the fastest. On
toe whole, despite the highest rail
road investment per head in Eu
rope, Switzerland has the best of
railway service at the lowest of
rates, the result of centralized state
control coupled with free industry
under the limitations of that con
trol. In the ripest judgment of
the nation up to the present, this
system yields better results than
any other: by a referendary vote
u'.:en in December, 1891, the peo- J
pie refused to charge it for state
ownership of railroads.
