The fact that It is necessary to pro
vide military escorts for eoitaln rail
road trains and trolley cars In portions
cif the coal Holds, to prevent mobs from
folding them up In older to search for
non-union men whose crime consists of
exercising the light to work, would be
a good subject" for consideration by
Mayor aiaybnry's strike-cure conven
tion in Detroit, it will explain a lot of
The Strike Enigma.
IT IS, of course, sincerely to be
hoped that the efforts now being
made to bring the strike to an
end may be successful. The strike
has reached a stage where I. is pinch
ing everybody. Not alone is it spread
ing misery and havoc throughout tho
anthracite tenitory, btit'it Is menacing
the employment of thousands of work
ingmen at a distance and the comfort
if not Hie health of millions In every
direction. Without exaggeration it may
fairly be called the greatest menace
which the country has had within its
Jmrders. slnoe the days of secession and
the longer It lasts the worse It becomes.
All these facts are fully understood
by intelligent Americans, who are sin
cerely hopeful that the menace will soon
break and disappear. IJut we confess
our inability to see the usefulness of
public meetings such as tho one pro
posed by tho mayor of Detroit or of in
discriminate outcry by persons who
have no practical suggestions to offer.
The situation calls instead for calm
Judgment and self-control on the part
of the leaders of public opinion. As an
offset to tome of the hysteria now
prevalent, suppose we consider for a
moment u few fundamental truths.
The coal mines are private property.
The government can no more seize
them than it could seize the furniture
of the striking miners. As President
Roosevelt found out when lie consulted
legal authority, there is no way by
which the government can lawfully
take a hand In settling the strike. And
even if there were a way, tho govern
ment, with all its power, could not
legally force a single striker to work
against his will. Thcie Is one thing and
only one thing which tho government
can do, if It has not already done It:
and that is to protect from intimida
tion and from any and all forms of un
lawful interference or oppression the
man In the coal fields who either Is sit
work In the mines or wants to go to
work In them. We who live In the
mining region know that there has been
systomatio and wholesale Intimidation
and terrorism directed to the qutl of
scaring Into continued idleness men
who want and wlin.se conditions need
work, wages and self-support. It Is the
dlltv of the covernnient to nut : utnn
v - - "i
e-o far ns It can to such a condition of
lawlessness. Then, If the strike long
roifyilns intact, it will be time to con
sider, other measures.
Tlie action of the president In sum
moning tho coal presidents and John
! 5IItul)ell to n conference Is a courage
ousonc, likely to increase tho ureal.
.yiVcnt's understanding of the matters at
Issued but wo do not expect that it will
liavej other rcHUlt, No power resides In
the president of the I'nlted States to
compel and very little to persuade men
actlitg ub trustees for vested Interests
to accept -coniliUoiiH which they feel
would be ftrtttl to the orderly conduct
and Jiecessnry discipline of their busi
ness.? hi that respect the conference la
necessarily unequal, representing on tho
one hand full legal responsibility cover
ing ny agreements made and on the
othe iin organization newly formed In
tho untlmicltc region, without responsi
bility In the legal sense, however com
pact,) loyal and determined otherwise,
and representing very largely one man's
astuteness and. power to Impress his
Ideasjaml ambitions on those numbered
ninoijenhV following, Unless It be that
lioth 'slues have tired of the struggle and
want, some manufactured opportunity
to lay down gracefully, we cannot find
ground In the proposed meeting for
lioldljis out to our readers optimistic
assurances; though If good shall come
from'tha daring move, it will, of course,
bo welcome. Should nothing come, there
will be little encouragement for further
Intercession. In any event, tho presi
dent has shown characteristic bravery
and straightforwardness In his method
of approach to this dlflleult problem,
andhas exhibited honest solicitude for
the public welfare. v
A word now totfiose citizens who feel
that something 'radical, though they'
know flot what, should, bo dona to settle
tho strike. We tlo not recall having seen
tho suggestion In print, but it occurs
to us that there Is only one feasible
wny by which persons not Interested In
the coal business its Investors and oiu
ployera may take, from thn?o who are,
the ownership and management of the
coal mines, nnd that la by purelmse.
tt is open to tho critics of the oper
ators to form a pool and try lo buy
out the existing holdings of anthracite.
This would Bccin to bo a time when n
low selling price might bo nntnetti and
tho advantage of a change In owner
ship would bo that thoo who now feel
that the present operators ore harsh
and unfair to the mine workers on
strike could substitute nny policy of
recognition and treatment which might
Impress them as being more equitable,
and nlfo establish anthracite prices to
suit their present objections. Their at
tempt to manage ti business which
other men own Is one that few of them
would approve If It should bo turned
Tho strike spirit now prevalent among
certain school children calls for some
vigorous counter striking among par
ents, unless wc are to have a new crop
of anarchists In this country.
The Situation in Ireland.
ON THtTHSDAY of last week
tho Karl of Dudley made his
entry Into Dublin as Lord
Lieutenant of Ireland. lie
passed through u city as Indlrferent to
his advent or his presence as If he
were an ordlnnry Kngllsh tourist on
his way to his hotel. Ills progress
through the streets was marked, to bo
sure, by lines of soldiers and the gas
conade of ii few ultra loyal students
from Trinity college; but these puerile
demonstrations only served to empha
size the Irony of the state entry of
the king's vice regent, his first and
maybe the last.
The new viceroy Is u young man,
very rich and In his own circle very
popular. lie bears no ill will toward
the Irish, nor do they toward him. He
would, no dot) hi, spend oceans of money
to popularize ills tenure of ofllco; but
he knows that during his brief stay
in the country his political influence
will have as little weight In conciliat
ing or alienating Irishmen to the sys
tem which he represents as the gyra
tljns of the weathercock on St. Pat
rick's cathedral. This government
blight has lasted, with some slight
modifications, In Ireland for nearly sev
en hundred years, and grows more hol
low in Its hopeless fatuity from genera
tion to geneiatlon.
The London Times seizes the occasion
to publish an unusually pessimistic ar
ticle on the relations between England
and Ireland at the present moment.
Probably three-fourths of the Irish
parliament Yepresentatlves will be In
jail before Chi Istmas, not to speak of
the arrest and incarceration of village
politicians whose popularity and con
sequence are vastly increased in the
eyes of their neighbors by a sojourn
In the county jail. These prosecutions
are brought under the Crimes Act, a
measure which Is at once so drastic
and inconsequential that ordinary
criminals are not amenable to its pro
visions. It applies only to politicians
who assert the light of liberty of
speech, or public meeting, freedom of
the press, and such constitutional pre
rogatives of citizenship as Americans
and Englishmen associate with their
fundamental conception of public lib
erty. From ordinary crime Ireland Is
exceptionally, even unprecedentedly
free. Kroin Belfast to Cork and from
(lalway to. Dublin during the last as
size there was not a single murder
case, and at most of the courts judges
were presented with white glove.
The Times suggests under these cir
cumstances that the vice regal court
should be abolished and that Ireland
should be governed similarly to Scot
land. This would mean, In the first
place, the razing of Dublin Castle,
which is the centralized bureaucracy
from which tho country is governed,
without the governed having voice or
choice In tlio arrangements. It would
mean, above all, civil control of the
police. The Irish constabulary Is now
a military force, armed, drilled, olll
cered and housed like soldiers. The
magistracy would become representa
tive, having the confidence of the peo
ple and not as now only that of Dub
lin Castle, Those changes would not
be a substitute for Home Hule, but
they would go far in reducing to sim
ple proportions a problem which tho
English people, with nil their genius
for government at home and abroad,
have failed "to muddle through some
how" in dealing with Ireland,

The Savings of Labor.
W II ION tho Republican party
came Into power In ISfil
tho number of deposl
tors In savings banks In
this country was G91.IS7. In 1001 they
had Increased to 0,58,723, In 1S01 the
deposits were $l4G,720,8Si; la 1901 they
were ?2,507,09I,DSO a gain of nearly IS
fold In 10 years.
The average to the credit of each
depositor In 1SGI was J2U.7; In 1001
It was $108,17. In Great Britain, in
1001 It is $96.57; In Switzerland, $110.12;
in France, IS2.79; In Prussia, $153,01;
In Russia, $IOO.S3; In Sweden, $07,20; in
tho Netherlands, $58.20; In Denmark,
$105.93; and In Italy, $S0.07, Thus It
Is seen that the savings In the United
States are moro than three times the
European average, and more than four
times those of Great Britain, where
free trade has prevailed for fifty years,
In addition to this, the report of
the Industrial commission says that
American workmen have n successful
operation more than 5,000 building nnd
loan associations, with nearly one and
one-half million members, and assets
of $575,000,000. Millions of theso work
'men now own their homes, In 1891 the
chief of police, ot Leeds, England, a
city of 320,000 Inhabitants, testllled be
foio tho royal labor commission that
In ull that city not one worklngman
owned the home he lived In,
The. conditions under which tho Am
erican worklngman bus been enabled
to accumulate eo largo a savings fund
have been the direct handiwork of the
Republican party. Tho only times In
that 41 years when tho Democracy had
a chance to try Us hand nt running
tho government were yenrs of stagna
tion, distress, Idleness nnd wholesale
charity. Is It surprising, therefore,
that, In tho words of Mnrlt Hannn, the
American worklngman Intends next
month to "Bland pal?"
A recent Issue ot tho London Times
In Its Houth Wales correspondence told
of fears of a disagreement between the
mints wot Iters ami operators In that dis
trict upon tho termination of tho pres
ent sliding sealo agreement, next year.
It told of a meeting .of 10,000 miners nt
Porth and ot addresses to them by
"Aiabon," Vice-President Brace of tho
South Wales Federation, Generul Sec
retary Harvey of tho Derbyshire miners
and Sir Alfred Thomas, M. P., tho tenor
of which was that while no one wanted
trouble tho wishes of tho minors must
bo respected or there was no tolling
whnt might happen, This was written
before Americans had begun to order
Welsh coal In quantity. Whether this
state of things will modify tho feeling
in favor of a strike In cortuln contin
gencies remains to bo seen, But tho
Tillies article shows that American coal
Interests ore not having any monopoly
The saying that what Is one man's
meat Is another man's poison Is Illus
trated In. tho following extract from
yesterday's New York Tribune; "In
spite of the fact that the bituminous
Is an Industry entirely Independent of
the. anthracite, tho price of soft coal In
this city has risen to an extraordinary
figure. It Is selling at $D a ton whole
sale, with tho promise of a dally In
crease.. On the East Side dealers are
doling It out at the rate of 25 to 35
cents a pailful. Somebody Is reaping a
harvest, notwithstanding that more
soft coal Is being mined today than
ever before." There Is food for t.hought
In this quotation. But Is tho anthracite
as independent of the bituminous as
tho New York paper thinks?
The reason given by the People's
parly for throwing up tho sponge In
this slate, namely, that It has no cam
paign fund, Is convincing. Fundless
campaigns don't go fur In Pennsyl
vania. Evans and Williams will make com
petent mine Inspectors. They will be
inspectors who will inspect.
It is a safe guess that Ben Odeli will
make Bird Color think he Is a mud
fl Uef?ran Miner
' Suggests a Plan
THE following suggestion for a re
organization of the mining busi
ness comes from a man who has
labored In and about the mines for
nearly forty years and who thinks ho
understands thoroughly what Is needed
to tranqulllze the labor situation:
Mr. Editor: Necessity Is the mother of
all inventions, and the present strike has
made It neces-ary to devise a new plan
to work the coal mines hereabouts. And
If the new plants a practical one, as
many believe It Is, then It would be the
best and easiest to end the present strike
by adopting it and doing away with
miners' contract work nnd have them to
work on the same system as all others In
side the mines on dally wages. It has
been said that one miner could, by con
fining himself only lo preparing tho pow
der, tamping the holes and firing tho
same, attend to ten chambers, tho labor
ers doing all other work, such as clean
ing and loading the coal and working out
the coal after each blast, If need be,
which Is often the case. But It seems
that ten chambers Is rather a high num
ber for one miner to attend to. Yet It
may be done with some good miners, and
with exceptionally gnud places In different
veins of coal. In other places, one miner
would not be able lo attend to more than
live chambers ilnd In tight or hard
places, two or three chambers would be
all ho could attend to. Also, It would call
for tho best and most practical miners
where the coal is tight and bard, be
causo moro holes would bo drilled and
fired; and especially It calls for the best
judgment in tho use of powder In each
blast. 1 know of some peoplo called
miner', who judge the amount of powder
by the depth of tho hole drilled four foot
of hole, eighteen Inches of powder; ilvo
and one-half foot ot hole, two feet of
powder but a practical miner never docs
so. IIu ulwas judges tho amount of
powder by the amount of coal to be
thrown out, and he always knows how
tho, grain of the coal inns, for It often
needs more powder In the four-foot hole
thai. It docs In the live and one-half-foot
hole. A good minor should always have
good wages, the samo as all other num
ber onu tradesmen; and I am of tho opin
ion If the new plan Is practicable, and
put in operation, it would be tho best, in
tho long run, for all concerned.
H U true that somo miners would not
like it, especially those that have the bad
habit of hurrying out of tho mines early
every day. Tliey would not bo able to do
co will tho new plan. Hut, In place of
tho miners getting only one-half or three
quarters time, as heretofore, they would
get tho same tlmo as all other company
hands. Furthermore, It would do away
with the following matters, that may
cause strikes again:
First There is a strong deslro and ten
dency among the miners' laborers to de
mand half of the earnings of tho miners.
Second-There Is great demand and cry
for tho weighing of tho coal theso days,
which must be heard sooner or later with
the promt niodo of working,
Third Tho docking of coal has always
been a bono of contention with the
miners slnoo I remember, back In the
Fourth The minora' certificate. The
miners in tho past were condemning the
certificate law, saying It was detrimental
to miners, and tho operators, I believe,
know that tho certlllcale law Is detrimen
tal to them In this strike, or fight, as we
muy call It, Hut with tho new plan of
woiklug In tho mines, thero would bo no
chance for tho light between tho nilueis
and laborers for half tho proceeds of tho
earnings; also, there would bo no talk of
tho weighing of tho coal, because all
would bo working for dally wages; and
there would bo no need of to much ado
on cither side about tho certificate,
Therefore, being that those threatening
dangers of strikes uro cast abide, It would
bo better for both sales to get tho now
plan a operation; tlio soon the better It
will be, and end this strike. Strikes are
klliers, Labor Is tho sinews, marrow,
blood nnd life of our country, Stop labor
and all suffer. Strikes have killed every
union lh.it I was over In, What will come
of tUo union of today, tlmo will tell.
How much money have tho worklngmeu
lest? How much Jmvo tho operators lost?
How much has ull business In generul
loot If you have tho figures, add them
tigether and the sum will be enormous.
What has caused all (hla sacrifice? The
strike. How many families hud mado ar
rangements for a homo for themselves,
by paying so much each mouth, and have
failed to do so? What is tho cuuso? The
