"The) , control of tho Fifty-seventh
congress will be determined," says Con
gressman Olmstead, "by the vote of
Pennsylvania," and he Is right. This
Is not a year to take chances.
A rio&ttn Instance.
AN INTERESTING object les
son in modern finance has
recently excited comment In
the circle of speculation. If
published reports aro true, it Is likely
to excite mora before it becomes a
The Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific
Railroad company has a capital of
175,000,000 and owns 4,000 miles of track.
The directors in the Rock Island also
control a number of smaller railway
properties, mostly feeders. The aggre
gate mileage of these subsidiary prop
erties Is 3,000. These roads did not be
long to the Rock Island; they were
carried under other corporate names,
but as a matter of fuct they wera-Rock
Island properties in effect, and It Is the
general belief that most of them were
purchased with Rock Island money.
Not long ago a new "Napoleon of
finance," one Judge Moore, formerly an
obscure Chicago lawyer whose first in
troduction to public notice was his or
ganization of the Diamond Match com
pany, one of the first of the big trusts,
conceived the idea of uniting the main
Rock Island property with its fila
ments, and to this end he, with others,
organized a new company, with a Jer
sey charter, and with double the capi
talization of the old, to "buy" in the
old company. Every holder of 100
shares of old stock may exchange for
70 shares of new preferred, 100 com
mon and $10,000 in collateral trust
bonds. The new preferred has a guar
anteed dividend of 4 per cent, for the
first seven years, then 5 per cent, for
the next seven years and thereafter It
becomes a 6 per cent, stock.
To the common beholder this whole
plan looks like a scheme to double
capitalization without substantially in
creasing values. The authorities of the
state of Iowa do not hesitate to assert
that It looks to them like an attempt
at wholesale inflation, and Governor
Cummins has ordered his attorney
general to make diligent Inquiry con
cerning the possibility of interposing
legal opposition to the completion of
the so-called merger. It is possible, of
course, that tho public has heard only
one side of this case. As in the case
of tho Northern Securities company,
there may be reasons for the merger
which do not reveal themselves on the
surface. But if the facts arc as stated
In tho published versions there is good
call for Intervention by the state of
Iowa and increased argument for a
modification of our corporate laws so
as to Increase the protection which
they afford to honest Investment by
putting a halter on stock watering.

A Panacea for Populism.
6'raur"dtspatch In the New
York Times conveys the grati
fying information that the"
jj. harvest yields in Minnesota
apjl the Dakotns, In spite of the cold
spring nnd wot hummer, are exceeding
nil expectations. Heavy rains and
snow In March, followed by rain and
destructive hall and wind storms nl
m5st dally up to Aug, I, with an un
uWnlly low temperature during this
pvlod, upset ull calculations of the
fifmers. Seeding was delayed for
Wffks, and a largo area that wus In
tejided.for. wheat wus seeded to other
Riylnsr while thousands"' of acres of
laftd have lain fallow for the reason
th&t U&was Impossible to work In tho
lldlita, There has also been trouble
wfj'h grasshoppers, rust and Hesslun
Jhese conditions explain why the
harvest s pot a record breaker. But
it. Appears to be ample, nevertheless, A
conservative estimate of the wheut
yield of the three, states places It at
I7i000,000 bushels, at least 67,000,000
bushels below muxlmum, Oats, how.
ver, go. to 100,000,000 bushels, or 10,
009jWyybs)8 morgan, n tfve, boimer
year, 1838. Flax Is the big crop, and
will make up for the shortage of wheat.
White this grain wltl not nil mature, It
Is estimated that the yield will be 100
per cent, greater than a year ago. The
early rains, which prevented wheat
planting, mado It necessary to plant a
late crop, nnd farmers turned their
attention to flax, Again, hundreds of
thousands of acres of new land were
brought under cultivation by tho vast
number of farmers that settled In the
Dakotns last year, nnd this was plant
ed to flax ns the only crop that will
yield a profit on sod. The estimate
allows n totul yield of 41,000,000 bush
els, which In value wilt almost equul
tho wheat crop. In the neighborhood
of 70,000,000 bushels of corn are looked
Taking current prices as the stand
ard of appraisal, this harvest promises
to put Into the farmers' pockets the

Says tho dispatch in the Times: "It
Is quite likely that this entire product
will bring to the farmer 10 per cent,
more money Hum the prices at which
these estimates are made. The quo
tations uro below the market price for
any of the grains during the past year,
and there appears to be no good rea
son why they should during the next
year reach so low a figure. In addition
to the above products of tho farm oth
er grains, hay, potatoes, vegetables,
live stock, and fruit must be tak
en Into consideration, as well as
the dairying Interests, the aggre
gate of which, It is declared, can
safely be set down at $100,000,000, bring
ing the grand total that will be real
ized this year by the farmers of these
three states up to about $300,000,000."
This will prove an effective panacea
There was never a moment when tho
country had greater reason to approve of
the Republican party than It has now,
and I do not entertain a doubt that In
the coming elections the people will voice
their approval at the polls. Speaker Hen

Whitney compressed the truth into a
sentence when he said that it has
"neither an issue nor a man."
THE FEAR of lightning as a
menace to life, although
quite general, has, If we may
believe a recently Issued bul
letin of the United States weather bu
reau, very little warrant. Lightning is
a menace to property, but the conclu
sion of the weather experts, based on
carefully complied statistics, Is that it
is a good deal safer to sit under a tree
in a severe draught during the wildest
thunderstorm than to travel twenty
five miles on the best railway train
The bulletin covers an observation
period of eleven years, during which
time every reported case of death or
physical Injury by lightning was in
vestigated. The average turned out to
be only 2.53 deaths annually per unit
area of 10,000 square miles, an area
more than twenty-three times that of
Lackawanna county. Take, for in
stance, the year 1900. Seven hundred
and thirteen people were killed or re
ceived fatal Injuries during the year.
Of this number 219 persons were killed
In the open, 158 In houses, 57 under
trees and 56 In barns. The circum
stances attending the death of the re
maining 151 are not known, Nino hun
dred and seventy-three persons were
more or less injured by lightning stroke
during the year. Of this number 327
persons received their Injuries while In
houses, 243 in the open, C7 in barns and
29 under trees. The circumstances at
tending the injury of the remaining 317
cases are not known. Compare this
with a record of railway accidents for
the same year, or with the number of
violent deaths which resulted naturally
enough from the pursuit of a thousand
and one occupations to which men and
women dally go, unthinking and happy,
and you will see why lightning is a
comparatively negligible quantity In
Although there Is more danger in a
train than under a tree during an elec
trical storm, It by no means follows
that the tree Is the best place of shel
ter. On the contrary, most of the
deaths are In groups ot persons huddled
together at the foot of a tree, around
the base of a haystack or near some,
other upright object. The bulletin thus
explains why: "Up to a certain point
the air is able to resist the stress in It
due to tho electrification of the cloud
mass. Whenever the stress passes a
certain limit, which may be culled the
breaking point, the air gives way; liter
ally it is cracked from cloud to earth
like a piece of glass us the bolt de
scends. While human foresight is able
to say approximately when a flash will
occur, It cannot say where tho nir will
give way first. The zone of danger is
In general co-equal with the area of the
storm cloud. Almost any upright ob
ject In this area is a better conductor
than the air In which It stands,"
The saying that no one can tell where
lightning will strike next, while true
literally, Is true only in minute detail.
It la now pqsslble to tell In advance
where a thunderstorm will develop, A
young Jesuit priest of Cleveland, O,,
Father Odenbuch. 'has Invented a deli
cate machine, culled the ccrnunograph,
which will detect the npproaeh ot an
electrical storm when it is a long dis
tance away, He has Issued warnings
three hours In advance of the arrival of
the storm, which Is umply sufficient to
enable any timid person to hunt a cel
lar or a cave,
The decision of Judge Goff declining
to vacate the injunction grunted by
Judge Jackson against tho yest Vir
ginia striking mine workers and the
organizers of the United Mine Workers
of America will be a dlsapoplntment In
laboAclrcies; but It was to have been
expected. Judge Goff did not consider
facts Ar evidence; ho considered sim
ply theiquestlon whether he had juris
diction pver contempt proceedings In
another paurt. Jn the celebrated Debs
case, the! United States Supreme court,
through Justice ' Brewer, held that a
contempt proceeding could not be taken
from the Jurisdiction of Ihe court In
which It originated; mat it was not a
matter for review. Whether congress
has power to say otherwise, or to pro
vide for the federal Judiciary a dif
ferent basts for enforcing Its authority,
remains to be established. The Su
premo court Is jealous ot the preroga
tives of the Judicial bench, which Is co
ordinate with the legislative branch;
nnd not until congress modifies "gov
ernment by Injunction" and the Su
preme court decides whether or not
congress has Juilsdlctlon In the prem
ises will this Issue be finally settled.
Experience seems to prove that It Is
almost Impossible for oven a supposed
law-abiding citizen of good Judgment
to refrain from, becoming a reckless
lunatic when occupying a seat In an
It looks as though the residents of
the Philippine Islands and the Catholic
Federation societies would never bo
able to agree upon the friar ques
tion. The proposed Cuban bond Issue Is
simply a recognition of necessity,
Bricks cannot bo made without straw.
For a man with tho avowed ambition
to remain a private citizen, Mr. Bryan
continues to make considerable fuss.
The Irvine case appears as difficult
to settle as a Central American revo
lution. Admiral Dewey's double U missing a
lot of fun through excessive modesty.
One Man's UieuJs
o! Labor Problem
Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: Much has been said, wise and oth
erwise, as to unionism in our leading
newspapers; the greater part In support
of which has come from the pens ot
some biased minds who are thlnklnc of
the power possible to be generated by the
control of such organizations.
First Much more of malerlul progress
could be made for the alleviation of tho
laboring classes of this free nation If Us
members be taught that all citizens who
go and come peaceably can not be Inter
fered with In a desire to labor, whether
they may support a "button" or "tag. '
Second That a laborer Is employed for
his personal usefulness and not because
his employer has been given the cue by
the committee of his "local" thnt he Is
ono of the members In good standing,
therefore must not be dispensed with.
There aro a great number of old and
reliable organizations in perfect working
order to which any respectable laborer
will be heartily welcomed, furnishing all
sick, death and other "benefits" which
might bo made a side Issue of "unlon
lhm;" tho members of thest stand by one
another as brothers; all of these bene
fits may be had for a much less fee than
Is generally called for to support
"unions;" these orders are minus the
"agitator" and the expense necessary to
make a mogul of him; their regulations
do not conflict with tho constitution of
tho United States, so they are not to be
depended on to ostracise from opportun
ity to labor all only their members; most
of them recognizo the "brotherhood of
mankind" and a member would not In
jure nny manbut for pure self-protection.
The main trouble seems to be that labor
ers of one class are entirely Ignorant of
many of the hardships suffered by the
other (do not bo misled by thinking it Is
the poor class who have all the wisdom. )
As a rule, our "great men" of today In
yeai-s gone by suffered more from pov
erty than any of our laboring classes, and
have won such wealth as they possess
through longer houis and harder toll
than nny are subject to at present. We
have the pleasure to count as personal
friends men of much wealth: men who
have accumulated that wealth through
honest hard toll; men who at the prime
of life were at as hard loll as the mem
ber of any "strike" and who in thoso
days found it lucky If they could pro
cure enough "corn bread" to stop tho
hunger of themselves and family. It was
by tho influence of no "union" that they
gtew wealthy, neither was It "luck;" It
was because they proved themselves
trusty where their employer placed them;
they did the worlc where others shirked;
they laid by some of their small earn
ings, where otheis expended more than
they earned. If they became ill or out
of employment, thus contracting debt,
this they paid while they went without
many of tho necessaries of life. "These
are they who came up out of great tribu
lation." It Is such men who know what
is true worth in a laborer and are com
petent to "arbitrate" troubles, or to give
a man advice us to what he should do
for his best interest. They were not men
who paid $10 to became a member of
some "labor union," or set aside $1 or
one day's pay each month for the sup
port of some "labor organization" with
its "sympathetic" agitator to lead them
out of the only employment by which
they procured their dally bread, which
would tempt them to commit murder
when they saw some brother man taking
up tho 'work they had wilfully refused
This great nation Is full ot labor. All
of tho rich men put In moro hours and
at more fntigulng wotk than most of
their employes. It Is because they have
bo Just a knowledge of n day's work nnd
know how much work Is shirked that the
laborer Is unable to get what he has been
led to believe Is Justice from a majority
of the employers. Again and again wo
repeat that so far as so-called "labor
unions " nnd tho employer are concerned,
"there Is nothing to nibltrate," Let each
man go as a man and receive his deserts.
If ho Is a good man ho is personally
aware of It. Should ono employer not see
fit to do him fair, thero Is always some
one looking for good men. lie will find
his tights. If he personully doubts him
self, let him commence today to bo tho
best man In his class and It will burpilse
him how soon that class will be recog
nized. Men of late have lost too much time In
trying to drnw pay for nothing and oc
cupied too llttlo tlma In training to do
moro nna better work each uay. Let tne
latter effort becomo the rule and see how
coon capital and labor will becomo united
on paying terms to each,
For tho labor ngltutar to bo continually
blattlng In public his great "i egrets" for
tho lawless nets ot tho class he acknowl
edges to bo the Jcador of, while at tho
samo time ho tries to brand with shame
those people who tiivevfound It necessary
to stnnd together for the protection of
mankind In their common rights, la too
thin n guuzo to hide the actual wicked
ness of his heart. Such men care but
little for tho actual suffering of human
ity, If the sophistry which they promul
gate may hold tcgethor a following that,
as willing dupes, keeps pouring gold Into
a leservolr for the support of his unholy
cause. In tho main It Is all for "vain
glory;" to make slaves of their follow
men. They can only hope to control fa
natics or the untutored, and theso
What men of Bound mind can be willing
to become tho slaves of thnso who hae,
first, promised to relieve them of burdens
which, though seeming grievous,' pro
cured them their dally bread; and. better,
If they saw fit to husband it, then at a
certain point they tell these tools "you
must give up this employment to win"
and to ethers "you must put up out of
your pittance sums of money" to assist
In a "humane" cans?? Had there been
any foundation to their tcasonlng, would
they be willing to sucrlflco the only in
come their followers had at any ort?
"Many mlckles make a muckle." if nny
class of labor has by perseverance at
"unfair" conditions boon able to put nslde
any small sum for the general good
through organization, had they wise,
faithful, sympathetic leaders, would they
not Invest that sum so It would tend to
ward tho ownership of mich Industry, thus
bringing their followers Into Increased
Interest In their labors? Such lenders
would refuse to rccelvo higher compen
sation for tlioAr services than tho wages
realized by their followers. This would
be n practical sympathy.
Take tho nverngo laborer that Is "out
on strike" todny. Should nil employers
concedo nil points nt once, would their
conditions bo so Improved that during the
remainder of their lives they could re
imburse themselves for tho wages lost
during their willful Idleness? If tho la
borer has put In nn existence, though Idle,
could ho not have lived decidedly bettor
with tho old conditions? When the strike
Is declared "won" nnd labor Is resumed,
does tho laborer fcol so secure In his po
sition as before trouble began?
Labor n Kiln torn renllzo that thoro will
be men who sco these conditions nnd will
be ready to labor. They know tho only
way to prevent them Is by tho Intimida
tions practiced by the lawless class. Yet
they make no provision for holding this
class of their fraternity In check, nnd
mnko great complaint at any effort that
Is put forth to bring them to Justice
while they condono threats on the life
of any who dare to speak their mind
against the existence of such conditions.
When "union" peoplo stop branding as
"blacklegs" duly appointed ofllccrs of tho
peaco nnd come fnrwnrd and offer their
evidence In convicting thoso who hnvo
shown themselves to be more barbarous
than humane In their treatment of Inno
