lliiuor llienses, Instead of raising at
unco to the $1100 price. Illustrates fioin
how iiianv standpoints this question of
slat' supervision or I he liquor trallle
can he viewed, t'ltlzeus who for years
vv re passive under the jrCiO rating are
suddenly excicisod that this latlng, nf
ter a change In classlllentlon, Is to be
retained. Instead' of one speakeasy
now to every licensed place, they would
have three or four, with reduced rev
enue and the same thiists and ex
cesses as before.
Now If It were desired to apuioaeli
this subjci t practically, there Is a
much better suggestion to otfer than
any yet made; and that Is that power
be given to each state to Impose, on
top of the uniform fedeial revenue tax,
a state stamp tax on alt liquor pro
duced In or entering that state, the
hulk of the revenue from this method
to be apportioned nmung the munici
palities of the state In proportion to
pomilatlon. Or, If this Involves too
long a jierlod of agitation to secure Its
Incorpoiatlon Into the fundamental
law, the next best method, from a
practical standpoint, should be to name
a moderate license fee in cities, grad
ed us to population, and then to let
every applicant have a license who
applies for one, subject to speellled
conditions and lesti lotions. That done,
shut up every speakeasy and niako
the license mean exactly what It says.
Afeeof ?:!00 amino speakeasies should
be decidedly preferable to a fee ot
$1100 and speakeasies all over town. Tt
should produce more revenue and tho
social consequences should bo tho same
in either cue.

IIK.V Till: anthracltn miners last fall ob
tained an advance of 10 per cent, against
the Judgment and desire of the operators
managing the mines and under piessuie
of the now- consolidation of capital, which con
trolled all the railroads and 80 large a share of
the mines as to tender the resistance of Individual
operators Impotent, the sympathy of the public,
was strongly with the demand of the miners.
Thanks to tho Interruption of production for a
full month, to an unexpected increase In the de
mand for Iron and to a rise in tlio price of coal,
both abroad and at home, which carried Us quo
tation to a flguro unknown tot- nearly twenty
oais, the Imrcascd wages have been paid not
only without diminishing the profits of the
capital engaged In tho mines, but with an in
crease of these profits, of the total number of
persons emptoyed In mining and ot the total wage
fund distributed In the mining region.
The wisdom of the advance his, therefore, been
fully Justified. When It was continued by gen
eral consmt ot the operators for another oar
tlic fact was accepted by the publle as showing
not only that the previous advance was fair,
but tlut the conduct and direction of the; capital
engaged in coal mining had been placed upon a
level which commanded public lonlldenci-. Tlie
miners themselves showed their appreciation of
this by asking no additional inereaM In wages.
In fact, as far as wages aro concerned, the an
thracite coal miners now have more than they
ever expected to get, and their present level of
wages has been obtained at a less cost, both to
capltat and labor, than any previous advanie in
tho liitory of the mine?.
The substanec of a labor struggle lias been suc
cessfully won. Ihe actual working miner has
whit be wants. Tho operators, while the were
most reluctant to mike an advance last fill and
while the older and moro experienced of them
hive! bcea steadily piedietlng thiougli the winter
that the concessions made then and lepoated this
spung would piove inclfcctual in preventing labor
duitnlinnri- art- also satisfied. lhe- are navinur
more wages than ever before, but they are also
miking us muih money. The capitalists, whosn
"community ot Ititircst" iu lailruads and mines
has enabled them to secure both this advance
and the continuous operation of their piopcrths
with a tonnage never before cijualcd, and reach
ing nearly live-sixths of the possible product of
the plant of the anthracite region, are also per
fectly satisfied. The only peisons iu tlio difficult
problem presented by anthracite mining not whol
ly satisfied arc the labor leaders. They Invc not
reeeived "recognition" for their orginlration.
Their position, as the only men through whom
a collective bargain can be made, has not been
accepted, 'ihe bargain for an advance lues been
made and closed, It has been settled, not in a
"confeieiice," but iu that wider market plaie,
vvlitth in the newspaper and through public dis
cussion has settled that the 10 per cent, increase
was fair, that it was feasible, that It must be
made, that it ought to be continued and that it
was a just end of the controversy.
The real Issue which is now- being decided in
the anthracite mine region is whether In this
nutter methods arc of more impoitancc than re
sults', whether the shadow Is woitli a light when
tho substance has beni secured without one,
whether the "recognition" of ;i labor oigaulra

for twenty jeara In the binds of every miner
who can use a pkk In the anthracite mining le

can be piecipltated on this issue of reiognltlon.
The mingled foircs of capitalists and opeiatnrs
who lcprcsciit, conliol and dlrict the capital en

Ingincu carried an ovciwhelinlng majority ol ion
tinted miners into a strike, and that an equally
vlguious, but powerful and ovcrmasliriiig, minor
ity of lapitallsts forced the acquiescence of open
tors. Tlfeie ts a ver.v large number of operators
who for various reasons Ircl that a strike is In

Tlie anthracite region never stood alone. It
