The Threatened Meat, Famine
Awakens Criticism of Trusts
The terrible conditions brought
.bout by the trusts, who control the
necessities of life io this country are
becomlngso intolerable that even
some of the great dsllies, that do not
wear the collar of subserviency 'o
the interests of the "system" are be
ginning to voice their disapproval.
An illustrative instance of this fact
is contained in the following, article
from the Portland Telegram, of the
2d Inst; which cays:
'Tacoma and .St at He, terhacs the
entire Sound couutry, may be visited
by a fresh meat famine. There is a
strike of a single class of employes
on a single line of railroad, from
Chicago to the Coast, and the indus
trial waifare is scarcely twenty-four
hours old when announcement is
made that these Ccst cities are short
of meat and may suffer famine be
oause of the interruption of busioes"
on the one line of communication."
"There are a great many apostles of
progress who preach to us about the
advantages of monoply; who are al
ways willing to show us bow much
better the trusts serve the eople
than they would be served if busi
Watering Stocks a
To Fool People
One of the favorite methods of the
oaptaius of iudustry for exploiting
the people is by the means of
"watered stock. The animus for the
increase in tbe capitalization is to
enable corporations of whatsoever
degree to gtt away with a greater
amount of "swag", for those fortu
nate enough to be in tbe deal
A recent illustration of this truth
is bal in the increase of the capital
atocV of tbe Wells-Fargo Express
Company from 18,000.000 to 821,000
000 which is merely a convenient
neanB of absorbing the accumulated
surplus profits of about 816,000,000.
A special dividend of $310 a share
has been declaied to the stock bold
era. out of which subscription for
new stjck may be pBid.
Such an enormous surplus of pro
fits means execeesive earnings
through over charges for service
rendered the public, says tbe Sacra
meuto Bee. This is because tbe pos
tal rates on parcels in this country
are so high that tbey enable the express
companies to sucssfully compete
with tbe Post Office and yet charge

Iu discussing the upward trend in
the coat of the ueeeesrieB of life,
tfradstreets, always coneer?atiYe and
on the whole favorable to the trusts,
estimates that cost of living has in
reaaed 50 per eeut in 13 years. But.
have yon noticed that wages have not
increased that much! Have yoa din
covered that the average business
man, under exUtiug circumstances,
ii unable to meet tbe demaud of la
bor for such increase? Who then, Is it

this Nation is now knowu to produce?

What is the trouble?
The cause beyond the pale of ouu
troversy is due solely to tbe rnpid
increase in the ooet of living, and
tbe excessive growth of large fortunes
In tbe hands of a few which comes
entirely from claas legislation!
Who is responUble for such condi
tlon? Is it not blind subserviency to
party, "Tbe madness of many to ben
eflt the few?" Under such circum
stances is party fealty worth its
ooat to the ioidvidual, and especially
to the tired email business man, and
