' "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 closed chapter. 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. ;jlaybe Chaplain Rose wasn't Admiral Dewey, but ho deserved an ovation just the same. Dewey had a big fleet ojfjwarshlps back of him when ho wont Into Manila bay. Chapluln Rose passed tb'rough Duryea unarmed. A Panacea for Populism. w-w.c 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 AY: 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 Jt '. 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 for. Taking current prices as the stand ard of appraisal, this harvest promises to put Into the farmers' pockets the following sums: US.OOO.OOO bushels of wheat at nOc.JSO.OOO.COO 44,000,000 bushels of llax nt J1.25.. 63,000,000 100,000,000 bushels of oats nt 2oo... 2,',000,000 CT.OOO.OCO bushels of corn at Mo. , . 20,430,000 10,000000 bushels of barley at 30c. 3,000,000 Tbtal $192,430,000 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 for Populism. m 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 derson. As for tho Democracy, William C. Whitney compressed the truth into a sentence when he said that it has "neither an issue nor a man." Lightning. 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 ever constructed. 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 accident insurance. 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. m 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 automobile. 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. m 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 to do. 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 through sensation. 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 cent, harmless people; then,, and not till then, can society trust them to assist In maintaining I he peace In their respective neighborhoods, i Very truly yours, Isaac M.
