One Serious Afterthought,
Sixty-eight years ayo, wtaiU tbs c m
noti aud the beils were acclaimius; the
aenii-centeanial anniversary of the nv
tiou's bir(l), there died almost within
thu hour two wen who typified separata
policies and dit'furiuv: civilizations.
Oiirt of tht-se, John Aduun, atood for
the stern morality and abrewil eelf in
terest of the New England Puritans ;
the other, Thomas Jt'ffirson, repre
sented the bigltest ideals of the aristo
cratic coloiiints at Jamestown. During
their lives the.n eminaut men were
often bitter antagonists. Amid the
many public duties in which ttiuv were
niuttmlly rngayvd there oUen pene
trated the inevitable divisions in hered
ity, customs nnd idoals which clastml
at a Inter day cpon fields drenclied
with the blood of brother. To John
Adnmi we owe what is substantially
the Republican party of today; to
Thomas JeflVrson what traditionally
passes for the Deiu'icr.icy. Yet in the
hoar and atrt.se of death, oblivions te
nil that bud easagod their powers of
battle, the hearts and the soul of
these great patriots cams together in
lovine i -mbrac and took mutual Higut
into ti e presence of tlmir Maker.
Wo bear toluy at various intervals
talk of the yet unbridled chaem ba
tweeu the states, The spirit of rebel
lion still anrecoBBtrncted delifhts to
find occasion to vent it cherished bit
terness ; and perhaps, on the side of the
Blue, there are times when the heroes
of the Grav are denied their well-won
due. Ia the presence of these reminis
cences of the awful Civil war it does
one Kood to recur back to that July
day in lS-'O. when as the joy of the
younjr republic was finding vent in a
thousand noises, the magnanimity of
rivnl patriots, chastened and clarified
by the near approach of death, took the
form of simultaneous salutation voiced
in affection's aineere speech. What
ever may be said by freuzted Caves
and Rosaers, the spirit of true brother
hood is surely cementing the once sev
ered sections; and the real love of a de
serving mother country bringing into
the old fold all the once rebellious
The south has lest nothing that
time and opportnnity cannot replace.
It surrendered at Appomattox no
principle vital to it safety or neces
sary to the quiet of its conscience.
Slavery is dead and secession is dead;
but in their plaoe the south has the
greatest industrial possibilities of any
section, labor cheap and abundant
currying with its employment no cry
of sufferinir and no blush, of shame;
unrestricted social and political privi
leges upon a footing level with that
of the people of the north and west;
and a re-united destiny grand beyond
reach of exaggeration. It is for the
second generation after the war to
break away from the natnral preju
dices of their veteran sires and get
fairly into the spirit of American
liberty and bum in freedom, where one
wife, one home, one flig and one God
suffice to exhaust the lull measure of
Maybe: by the time Eugene V. Debs

Hiid gets bron,'ht round to a saving
realization of his own hardihood, hu
will conclude that the role of head
swelled agitator is more difficult and
dangerous than it looks from the out
side. Labor owes so sympathy to a
man who would kill it by his indis
The verdict of murder ia the first de
cree, brought ia at Troy early yester
day morning against "Bat" Shea, the
hired assassin of Robert Ross, is really
returned against the same political
system tbnt has developed snch men as
Mnrpliy, Croker. Grant and their vari
ous subordinates. John Swinton, an
observer certainly with exceptional
opportunities for the getting of accu
rate information, expresses the belief
that hundreds of persons are "pot out
of the wuy" each year in New York
city by agents of Tnuitniiny. whose re-
auntmmit has baeu incurred either po
litically or through threats to reveal
the Tammany methods of blackmail.
It was in this manner that "Bat" Shea
billed Robert Uoss. There is no doubt
that he did it for the promise of pay;
nd very little that that promise would

lioV offense consisted of being a Rv
pi'.blicae, who hud i Republican's ear
'.iftit iibi.ori'fnce of the electoral crimes
mid i,o I ice intimidation that bad for
year weighted Troy down under the
masmpnlons domination of Edward
Itirphy. He had volunteered as one
t f tiitite who purposed seeing if an clej.
tion cor.!. I not for once be held honestly
)u hit native citv ;and vho intended, if
it could not, to fi.iJ ont jnst why not,
Apprised of his audacity, the machine
het itself to work to get bim out of the
way; and no easier plan offering, the
job was entrusted to "Bat" Shea, a
professional bruiser, thug and tough.
It was deemed in bis school of politic!
ii very trivial thing to pop a man over
with convenient pistol; and no doubt
Shea was the most surprised person in
Troy when he learned that Rosa' death
had caused any oomment or commo
tion. Bnt as with Boss Tweed's insolent
query," What are you going to do about
it?", Shea had for once reckoned with
out bis host. In recent years a senti
ment bad been slowly growing that
publio office ia a publio trust aud that
elections are the concern of respeotable
citizens as well as of partisan banditti.
This growth had been gradual aud, for
the most part, quiet. Wits still ridi
culed it. Puraurap'i writers yet poked
satire at it. Nevertheless when the
bullet of a paid assassin smote Robert
Ross to death at Troy, the movement,
already lusty, fairly flaw into
magnitude, aud in sheer obedience
to un inexorable sentiment the
Murphy machine in Troy, after
ineffectual quips and feints, had
to desist from its efforts to shield its
appreheuded minion, aud was forced
to endure the slow torture of seoing
bim legally enmeshed in damning evi
dence while the erstwhile autocrats of
the Democratic party iu Albany aud
Troy were powerleae to save.
The end, however, is uot yet. Only
the tool has been doomed totho death
chair. The chieftain in crime is still
at large, fat, arrogant and impenitent.
Shall Shea hang while he csoaptfs? If
there is justice left among uj, history's
uuswer will be "No!"
Mtt. SiNi.EKt.v's business relations
with the typographical union should
noteoucern the politicians. The Re
publican party in this state should be
above drawing private business all tirs
iuto polities. In any effort to play the
demagouuo P-mocracy -has it handi
capped from the start.
The Way It Works.
It is always in order to sift current
events down to their first principles,
Henry Wattersou does this to perfec
tion with reference to the Debs strike
wheuhesars: "Ltbor has its rights.
So has capital. Neither can prosper
except under the reigu of reason and
law. Capital can destroy labor, and
labor can destroy capital, just as two
irreconcilable personal enemies, bout
upon a war of extermination, cau de
stroy one another. But suuli wars of
extermination are never justifiable.
The first law of life is to liva and to let
live. He who resorts to violence to
carry his purposs generally fulls, but,
even if be snaoeeJe, he can only main
tain big sncceis by violence. Aud so
with orgauizid bodies, whether of ctp
Itul or labor; though, in long-drawn
contests, ctpital has a minifest anl
manifold advantage over hbjr. Indi
vidually, the laboring una has much
(be worst of it iu his coutest with the
organized dollar. All history has
"Ia a country likiours. where there
is no primogeniture, or law of entail
under a government like oars, where
all thing are open to all men it is im
possible to find a reasonable motive Im
pelling any citizen, possessing equal
rights with every other citizm, to ad-vis-t
a policy, or pursue a course, that
can achieve only one of two results,
either ignomintou? failure as to its ot-j-.ctive
point, or a political revolution
minous to every aspiration and inter
est of the lowly and the poor. The agi
tations and passions which lead up to
thfl world's tragedies never advance
the fortunes of honest labor or raise
the wretched. A few crafty dema
gogues flourish for a time, then suc
cumb to the storm thny have invoked.
The poor invariably get the butt end
of it. When it comes to blows they
make food for powder, and over their
dead bodies the military dictator
mounts to command. Anarchy may
last for a while. But it always pre
cedes arbitrary power. In the long
run order is indispensable and inevita
ble, and when the civil process fails,
then martial law. It always has been
so, and it always will be so.
"We are not writing sophisms to
mislead the men now on strike. They
are doing the cause of labor vast In
jury. Their leaders are in reality
labor's worst enemies. But they are
also striking at the government They
are underminiug the one sy-tim of gov
ernment in all the world that gives them
an equal chance with al l other men,
Today a laborer, tomorrows capitalist.
Today follower, tomorrow n leader.
We have had twenty-three presidents
of the United States. No one of them
began life a very rich man, and most of
them were very poor men. Under what
other systems could Abraham Lincoln,
the porrrail spUtter.or AndrewJohnson,
the poor tailor, have risen to the head
of the stale? This strike is delivering
blows, it may be deadly blows, upon
the foundation of that system. No one
of thorn will he a penny richer by what
is going forward-the greater number
of them very much poorer whiNt tho
cause their instigators and masters
pretend to represent is boing strangled
to death. This is the sober truth and
the end wiM prove it abundantly. To
that end we appeal from the passions
of the boor."
It will not be Buid by any honost and
thoughtful in in that this is not true.
Even those who profit by strikes lose
by thorn in the end. Th vuguboad,
Martin Irons, was once supreme like
Eugene V. DjIis, Mr. Debs will do
well to profit by Irons' example.
Throughout tue history of labor diffi
culties those settlements bused on
physical force havi ever been eertsiti
to break the moment there chids n re
laxation of the abnormal tension. The
pathway to industrial progress is not
through chaos, riot and bloodshed.
Capital on the defensive is bonnd to
be merciless. Labor, on the aggresive,
is bound to be snictdal.

The Converted Hill.
There is no dbb trying to conceal, tb
fact that since his entrance iuto tl e
senate David B, Hill bus developed
rapidly and favorably. He has stuck
to principle In a manner wholly unpre
dicted by any act of his previous ca
reer; the thing which be has thought it
his duty to say and do be baa said and
done, whether It bss pleased bis fellow
partisans or rffeuded them. He has
iquured himself ou the broad platform
of political r quality toward all classes
and all sections aud his worJ ot protest
baa been uuflincnlngly backed when
necessary by bis unsupported vote.
Il may be that, keenly discerning the
popular preference for men of will and
backbone, be has chosen to enact this
role for aelf-beneSt rather than from
any loftier motive. We should not
wish to accept this opinion of Senator
Ilill without strong proof of iU accu
racy and fairness. A politician of long
demonstrated adroitness, bis career
heretofore has given excuse for many
iqually uncomplimentary conclusions.
But whatevor tho actuating influences
that impels bim to his present course,
it is n course that clearly reveals qual
ities entitling him to admiration, aud
one that, if exhibited At an earlier pe
riod in his life, would have placed bim
fornnojt among the great political
loaders of bis ago.
At the present juncture, however.
Senator Hill must see the utter Insuffi
ciency of the future open to him in the
modern Democracy. That party will
hare none of him. Ho has hit its pet
treasure blow after blow direotly in
tho faoe. He 1ms kicked away the se
ductive overtures of ita most opuleut
trust. He has flayed with flaming ridi
cule the shallow pretentions of its great
high priest, and bo has, above all else,
had the ineffubU hardihood to tell the
blunt truth. After that, the only pos
sible cry tuolern Democracy has intelli
gence enough to mak Is the bitter de
mand, "Crucify him!-' David B. Hill
Is uot the man to bs crusiflod. Despite
his faults, he is too bravo, too chivalrous
and too a hi". He should fast aud re
