New York correspondence to the Den

an old party standpoint. When a Par
isian anarchist sent an infernal ma
chine to the head of the French Roths
childs a couple of weeks ago the finan
cial universe trembled the next day,
when the cable flashed the news to ail
quarters of the globe. How intimately
the nations of Europe are entwined
with the fortunes of the Rothschilds U
a question. That the connection is very

at the history of Europe. One nation

In all the European wars of the past
century the Rothschilds were a most
potent factor. They practically held in
their hands the power to give defeat or
victory to either side, by withdrawing
their support from the one side or the
other. War in the past has always
meant untold millions to them. Car
nage coins gold for them.
What the wealth of this family is
can onjy be roughly estimated. It may
be $1,000,000,000 and it may be $3,000,-
000,000; it is somewhere between these
figures, for a.'l the gold in the world
only amounts to about $3,800,000,000.
There are eleven barons, each of them
among tho richest men hi Europe, and

that they can be used as a unit if need
AH this wealth sprang from the
genius of a son of a poor dealer in
furniture and cheap bric-a-brac at
Frankfort. This genius was named
Mayer Auselum, and over his pawn
shop hung a red shield instead of the
usual three balls. In German the red
shield is called 'Rothschild," and thus
Kothschi'd came to be known as the
name of Mayer Anselum, who was the
founder of a fortune which has no
equal in contemporaneous history. In
a small way this man started a bank
ing business. '.It was a little concern,
and for the first . few years
he had a .hard .' struggle to
keep it from going to the wall.
From the first he mapped out certain
rules which he absolutely adhered to,
and which are just as potent in the
management of the numerous banks to
day as they were then: and . for that
matter they will probably be in force
a dozen generations from now, if this
combine of gali owners and usurers
is not destroyed in the meantime.
One of them is: "A man will not tell
what he 'has not heard." Another is:
"Gold never repeats what it sees."
Absolute secrecy in all dealings is the
rule of the house. Let a clerk in any
of the banks be discovered In talking
about the most trivial thing connected
with the affairs of the business, and he
Is at once discharged. . As far as possi

the same family generation after gen
eration. The great grandson of a presv
rnt clerk may be keeping the same ac

forefather is working over today. In

The Rothschilds employ a skillful
professor of finance to instruct their
growing sons. Finance with them is
everything. A few Americans have
'studied under this genius. Henry F.
(iillig, the founder of the American Ex
change in London, was one cf these,
but he did not follow his teachings
strictly, for afrer build'.ng up a great
fortune in London without having a
cent of original capital, he failed
seven years ago for $ti.oon,ii00, leaving
hundreds of touring Americans
stranded in all parts of the g'obe.

crossed the channel at the risk of his
life, and was on the stock exchange
next morning. At that time England
only knew of the first part of the bat
tle, when it seemed that Napoleon was
again destined to eonquer. Rothschild's
gloomy air and the adroit rumors put
in circulation argued the worst for
Engiand. The prices -of securities fell
at a terrific rate. At the proper time
Rothschild put his agents at work buy
ing everything in sight. Later came
the news of Wellington's victory.
Rothschild is said to have cleared $C,-
000. 000 by this shady trick.
Biimarck has been forced to bow to
the moneyed power of this family. In
1S0C the Prussian government demand
ed an indemnity of $25,000,000 from tha
city of Frankfort. The Rothschilds
sent word to Bismarck that If any at
tempt was made to enforce the levy,
they would break every bank in Ber

Baron Alphonse de Rothschild, to
whom the infernal machine was re
cently sent, is the head of the Paris
bank. He has, like all the Jew usur
ers, strong ideas on the labor question,
and has made many enemies in conse
quence. Three years ago he expressed
these views on the labor problem:
"I do not believe in the so-called
labor movement. I am confidant that
the workingnien are satisfied with their
condition and have neither cause nor
desire to complain. They are, I am
convinced, indifferent to progress. To
be sure, some agitators make plenty of
noise, but that amounts to nothing:
they do not influence the honest and
"In considering the so-called labor
movement it is necessary, however, to
distinguish sharply good from bad
workmen. Only the idle good-for-nothings
desire the eight-hour day. Seri
ous men, fathers of families, work as
long as they think necessary for their
own and their children's needs. There
is much loose talking nowadays about
the danger of so much capital in the
hands of a few men. This is all rub
bish. Some men are richer; others are
poorer. It is the money which circu
lates which fructifies.
"Frighten and threaten capital and it
vanishes (because we can make it van
ish, see!) Capital is like water. Grasp
it violently and it slips through your
fingers; treat it gently, cllg a canal
(bonds) in which to lead k and it runs
wherever you will. Capital Is a coun
try's fortune. It repiesents the energy,
intelligence, thrift and labor of the
people. Capital is labor. Apart from
unhappy exceptions, which seem to be
unavoidable, each shares in the peo
ple's capita! according to his intelli
gence, energy and work accomplished
(and interest absorbs it all if you know
how to work the scheme and the
Rothschilds do). If a workman be dis
contented with his share he may strike
(and get shot down by the military, as
they did at Homestead and Pullman).
"It is unjust to compare a man with
capita! , and intelligence, organizing
faculties, invention and knowledge with
any gross,. brutal workman, who applies
to his work only the intelligent work
of his hands."
These views were not pleasant to the
excitable mahses of Paris. Perhaps the
infernal machine was an echo of them.

Tower of the Oltli rlioliler.
The movement for public control and
ownership of natural monopolies seems
to be gathering force everywhere.
Whether representatives of radical or
conservative thought be in power they
seem to be forced, almost as of neces
sity, Into a further and further exten
sion of the power of government over
matters heretofore left largely to the
management of Individuals. This tend
ency receives a fresh Illustration in
proposals Just made by the new Con
servative government in England,
through its colonial secretary, Mr.
With the advent of the Conservative
party to power in England one might
naturally look for a sharp reaction
from the alleged socialistic tendencies
of the long Libera! reign. We might
iexpect immediate cessation of efforts
!to ap;ily the principles of the factory
lacts, a quiet slumbering of the eight
hour movement, and, above all. no fur
;ther demands for the application of
;tbe principles of public ownership to
the transportation, lighting, and kin
jdred monopolies. But lo! here comes
Chamberlain, colonial secretary of an
ialleged reactionary government, in a
speech which is described as the "one
jspeech of the week", that will be remem
bered," .. asking the imperial govern
ment of England to go into the busi
ness of -ailroad building in tropical
Africa, for the development of English
icolonial interests located there. "If
railways are needed in tropical Africa
they should be built under colonial or
imperial administration rather than be
handed over to private . speculators,"
the secretary is reported as saying. He
lurther declared that many of the'Brit
Ish colonies are in the condition of un
developed estates, which could be de
veloped only "by a judicious Invest
ment of imperial money."
' This demand of the Conservative En
glish secretary contains the very meat
and kernel of the demand for public
ownership of natural monopolies in
this country. An extension of the pow
er of the whole people through gov
ernment. whe necessary to bring
about results demanded by the public
good. I'nder such a demand may be in
cluded the -movement in the United
States for government railroads, a post
al telegraph, and municip.il ownership
of gas. water and .electric-light works
and street railroads.
On another page Mr.' Edward .Rose
water, of the Omalui P.ee, who has
made a careful study of ihe results of
public ownership of natural monopolies
in England and other European coun
tries, answers what seems to us to be
one cf the main popn'ar objections to
the rripM!y growin?; movement for pub
lic oiieihIp of national monopolies
-the possible danger of increasing
power of th" oTi'p-lio'ding r'nss. Mr.
Uosew.irer is arguing for a postal tele

be the last thing to be considered In
deciding his fitness for tho position of
engineer on the public railroad or

Thus, might we not conclude that the

What Has Become of Our National
"Thew can be no donor, about it that
if the United States were to adopt a
silver basis tomorrow British trado
would be ruined before the year is out.
Every American industry would be pro
tected, not only at home but in every
other market. Of course the states
would surl'er to a certain extent .hrough
having to pny their obligations abroaj
in gold, but the loss in exchange under
this head would bo a mere drop in the
bucket, compared with the profits to be
reaped from the markets of South
America and Asia, to say nothing of
Europe. The marvel is that the United
States has not long ago seized the op
portunity; but for the necessity in the
way of commercial success and pros
perity, undoubtedly it would have been
done long ago."
The above is from the London Finan
cial News, one of the highest financial
authorities in the world.
Does It not seem strange remark
ably strange-r-that in the light of these
frequent admissions on the part of Britr
ish journals and statesmen as to tha
advantages that accrue to Great Britain
by reason of our financial policy, saying
nothing of the object lessons constant
ly presented to i:s here at home, that
we will go on year after year on lines
of policy that -are so injurious to our
own interests and of such great ad
vantage to our English neighbors?.
Why will not the American people
arise? Have we become-a nation of
chumps? Has statesmanship in this
couatry gone, to seed? Are patriotism
and national pride dying out? Have
we none of the spirit that animated our
forefathers? What has become of our
English statesmanship and the vor
acious greed of her, financiers has. after
a third of a century of intrigue and
cunning designs, succeeded, throngh
the most damnable , conspiracy ever
sprung upon a free people, in reducing

through intrifips with : our modern

given at Bridgeport, Conn.
