The Employers' Association Is busily
engaged com batting the reosonuble re
quest of the laboring men for legisla

Do the members of the Employers'
Association know what they are dolus?
Have they counted the coat? Are they
willing to establish a gulf of ill-will
between themselves and their em
ployes? The natural and necessary ef
fect of the fight now bclug made by
the employers against the wage-earners
la to convert hopefulness and ambi
tion Into sullenness and discourage
ment. The employes have wives and
children usually more children per
family than the employers and these
men arc Interested in the welfare of
their families and In. the welfare of
their country. They have been asking
for an eight-hour day in order that
tney may have more time for physical
recuperation, more time for intercourse
with their families and more time to
devote to their own intellectual devel
opment and the study of the problems
of government. Is not their effort a
laudable one? Can it bn consistently
opposed by men who are able to care
for their families much better and to
spend much more time with their fami
lies. To say that some worklngmen
would spend their idle hours in a sa
loon Is no answer to the argument in
favor of shorter hours. With shorter
hours will come movements for the
improvement of the wage-earners
movements that are impossible so long
as men are driven from bed to work
and from work back to bed again.
Some tons who Inherit money from
their parents not only squander it, but
are Injured by It will the Employers'
Association for that reason attempt to
repeal the statute of Inheritance?
The laboring men waut arbitration of
the differences between themselves nnd
Hielr corporate employers. Can the
employers afford to oppose this? As
well advocate a return to the wager
of battle as a means of settling dis
putes between Individuals as to argue
that differences between great corpora
tions and their employes ran be set
tled by strikes, lockouts and boycotts.
When the employer was an individual,
bad a few employes and worked with
his meu, there were personal acquaint
ance and mutual sympathy, but now
the man at the head of the corpora
tion does not know many of his .em
ployes, does not come into contact with
them or know how they live. Often
Urge salaries are provided for anil gen
erally there are dividends to be paid
on watered stock. "Ciood times" are
worked for all they are worth and
sometimes the employe Is expected to
boar the brunt of hard times. The law
must supply through a board of arbi
tration the element of Justice which
is now wanting. Employers ask. Have
we not a right to control our own
property? Certainly, bo long us they
attempt to control nothing elte? but
when In controlling their own prop
erty they alsoeck to control the lives
and liberty of their employes, they sub
ordinate human rights to what they
call property rights, and this Is as dan
gerous to their own descendants as to
the descendants of those who worked
for them. No method has yet been de
vised for Insuring the t-mployers' child
ren against the possibility of being
among the wage-earners of the next
generation. No person or class, there
fore can afford to legislate for a year
or even for a generation or to place I's
immediate advantage above the perma
nent good of sorlety, and the employers

The speech of Hon. Ebon W. Mar
tin, a Republican congressman lrom
South Dakota. In tho House on
March 4, is one of tho strongest ar
raignments of tho beef trust ever
made. He discussed the great de
cline in the prices of live boef, sinco
19iil and-1902, ami the great increase
lu the margin between prices
and the prices of fresh beef since
1001. Hero are somo of his figures:
Mean prices of good to extra, steers
in Chicago and ol good to extra frosh
beef (western sides) in Huston, and
the difference between theso prices,
by half years, for the years 1001, iyo2
and 190r
do this when they object to arbitra
tion. The laboring men are Becking relief
from government by Injunction. Why?
Because It is employed by corporations
to deprive their employes of the right
of trial by Jury. If a man Is accused
of larceny or assault he Is entitled to
trial by Jury, why should this right be
denied a laboring man when he Is ac
cused of interfering with his employ
ers business? it Is not sufficient to
say that he should not Interfere, for
the question of fact whether he Is In
terfering is Ihe very thing that the
jury should determine.
Neither Is It sufiielent to say thst
laboring men, organized or unorgau-
l.ed, make mistakes und sometimes
grleviously wrong their employers and
even each other. To err Is human, and
the laboring mnn Is human, but let
the law fix a limit to his activities and
lorbid anything that Is Inimical to pub
lic welfare. Then If a laboring man
violates Ihe law. let him be tried like
anyone else accused of crime, for cer
tainly a man who earns his bread by
the sweat of his brow is entitled to
every presumption that Is given to the
confirmed criminal.
The employers have started out on a
crusade against labor, ostensibly
against all labor, for the members of
the association are no more willing to
safeguard the interests of non-union
labor than they are to safeguard the
Interests of union men, where as the
work done by the members of labor
unions has benefited all laboring men,
those outside as well as those inside
of the labor organizations.
Some employers, smarting under
some particular grievance or supposed
grievance, have joined the Employers'
Assoclptlou without fully considering
the nature of the movement or the
consequences. Those who really sym
pathize with the masses, but who have
been mislead, will soon become awaYe
of the perils of the course upon which
the association has entered, and will
withdraw. They can not long remain
ignorant of the uncharitable spirit of
those who are at the head of the organ
The laboring men need the capitalist,
but the capitalist needs the laboring
men also. "Cuptains of Industry,"
with a genius for organization, are
needed, but a captain can not do any
thing without the air of sergeants, cor
porals and privates. There ought to be
onfidnncc and sympathy between em
ployers and employes, and this is Im
possible without a feeling of brotherly
love and an ungrudging recognition by
each of the rights of the other. Th"
employers are sowing dragon's teeth
hen they combine to crush the aspir
ations of employes who. In peace or
war, contribute so largely to the na
tion's wealth and strength. An at-so-
iation for the bringing of labor and
apltal together would prove far more
beneficent than nn association formed
to resist the Just efforts of laboring
men to advance their physical, mental
and moral welfare.
There is a disposition to lay all the
blame for that Springfield affair upon

The decision in the merger rase Im
poses a duty oil democrats as well as
upon 'the administration. The anti
trust law Is held to be sound and ef
fective, but It must be enforced before
It can bring relief to the public. The
democrats must now Insist upon the
enforcement of the law. Justice Holmes
In his dissenting opinion says that In
dictments "logically ought to follow
Ihe decision." and the democrats In
nngrrss ought to Insist that the at
torney general either prosecute or ex
plain why rich and powerful violators
of the law are given Immunity while
poor and obscure violators are prompt
ly punished. Not only should the law
be enforced against those who violated
It in the merger (ae, but It should bf
enforced against thoue who are violat
ing It In the almost Innumerable trusts.
Are not the steel trust, the coal trust,
the oil trust, the beef trust, the tobac
co truet, the sugar trust, the cracker
trust, tho whisky trust, the harvester
trust, etc. are not all of these violat
ing the Sherman anti-trust l.iw? Why
are they permitted to live and prey
upon the country? If the administra
tion nuswers that the decision docs
cot reach a single corporation, but only
a cotiuinutton ol corporations, the
democrats should tnsiat upon new legis
lation covering all private monopolies,
whether they operate as a single cor
poration or as a group of corporations.
The Kansas City platform presents a
remedy and the merger decision vindi
cates the principle lavolved in tht
Congress has power over Interstate
commerce and that power alone can
deal effectively with the trusts. As
long as a corporation confines ltselt
to the state from which it derives its
charter the people of that state can be
trusted to deal with It, but when it
crosses the stale line and Invades in
terstate commerce it comes under the
supervision of congress. Congress has
mude It a criminal offense for two or
more persons to conspire to restrain
trade. This ought to cover conspiraej
by persons in one corporation as well
as conspiracy by persons in control o;
separate corporations, if it does not
do so, It is easy to prepare a bill that
will. The Kansas City platform pro
poses a measure making it unlawful
for a stale corporation to engage lr.
Interstate commerce without first se
curing a federal license or permit, and
it proposes that the license or permit
shall be granted only after proof that
the stock of the corporation Is not
watered and that the corporation is not
trying to monopolize any branch of
business or Ihe production or sale of
any article of merchandise. Here U
a simple remedy; a remedy easily ap
plied. It does not interfere ;th any
legitimate corporation, but, on the con
trary, aids every legitimate corporation
by destroying the greedy and con
scienceless monopolies.
If the democrats expect to win the
confidence of the people they must
propose an effective remedy. It Is not
sufiielent to rail at republicans or to
ask them for a remedy. The peopie
uie looking for relief and they demand
positive, aggressive action. The trust
question can be made an Important Is
sue In the coming campaign if the dem
ocrats w ill do their duty. Let them rail
the attention of the country to the
question by refusing to consider any
thing else until satisfactory action is
taken. If the republicans are re
quired to bring In a rule for every
measure and are each time reminded
that the trusts still live, they will be
forced to decisive action or to abject
apology. Cato, after visiting Cart hog".
resolved never to make a speech wun
out declaring It as his opinion that
Carthage should be destroyed. The
democrats In the senate and house
might paraphrase Cato's famous saying
and each day demand a vote on a reso
lution declaring thai private monop
olies must be destroyed." .The Kan
sas Cltv platform points the way will
the democrats live up to that platform
or run from It?

first step in order to curb the power

certa'u that this act would kill the

probably largely responsible, for the
growth and power of Ibis trust. The
Interstate Commerce Commission
should have full power to rcgulato

by the bill recently Introduced in

yet only one suit has been brought

over, the trust Is now, even while
the suit is pending and while tho
trust is enjoined, making greater

Some of Congressman Martin's
comments upon theso and other fig
ures quoted In his tneeeh are as fol
lows: "They show that o,i tho first day
of August, 19o:i, the price of "good to
extra" beef steers was $5.17 per hun
dred, tho price of "good to extra"
dressed beef $8.37 a hundred, a dif
ference of $3.20. Now, if you loik
back In these tables to a data when
these concerns were selling the same
quality of beef at the same price, you
will find that on tho Hist day of Feb
ruary, 1002 eighteen months pre
vious they were selling this same
grade of dressed bsef to tho whole
sale trade at $8.37, the same as on
the first day of august, 1903. At that
time they were paying $G.50 for the
same grade cf steers. They were
getting them for $5.17 In August,
1903, making an Increased rrofit of
$1.32 per hundred, or $13.25 per steer
over the profits In February, 1902.
"293,001 beef steors were sold In
the Chicago market In the month of
August last, and if this samo ration
continued during the month it means
a difference In profit for that month
upon those steers of $3,882,203, or
$119,317 per day Increased proM for
tho month of August, 1903, over Feb
ruary, 1902, when they were selling
at precisely the samo price. Now,
you see the magnitude of this busi
ness In Chicago alone. You see at a
glance that this beef combine could
afford to pay a dally fine of $5,000
each per day, or. $:15,000 for seven
concerns, and then have left at the
close of ench day 3 business over
$100,000 Increased profit by reason of
manipulating the prices of that mar
ket. If they wero manipulating It.
Comparing the average price cf
steers and fresh beef for the first
months of 1901 with the last six
months of 1303, it will be seen from
the table that there was an average
increased profit for the latter period
over the former of C4 cents per bun
dred, or $6.45 per steer on "good to
extra" grade. There wero sold In
Chicago tho last six months of 1903
1,810,584 steers. Upon this basis the
Increased profits on these steers over
the prices prevailing the first six
mouths of 1901 would be abont $12
000,000, or $2,000,000 per month nnd
$7C.000 per day.
"Tho beef trust prosecution was
begun In May, 1902. Conditions had
become Intolerable at that lime. An
yet a comparison or the avernge
prices for the first six months of 190
with the last six months of 1903, will
show thnt the latter period was ever
worse from the standpoint of the beef
produced. The average margin of
profit to Ihe packing companies was
31 cents per hundred greater for tho
six months, making $5,889,8iS O
1,840,584 steers. This would repre
sent $081,111 per nionih. or $37 512
per day, greater profits on the busl
