A Humiliating Spoctacle to Every
Lover of Science.
l'oople do not seem to rea!i:: to v.imt
an extent our universities are being run
to suit the views of the millionaires
and corporations of the country. It is
a subtle danger and it is to be regretted
that the trustees and presidents of
these institutions should think it nec
essary to curry favor with, and cater to
the views of such men as Jloekcfellcr.
Carnegie and Russell Sage, in the fear
that they may withhold pecuniary
favors or endowments to the institu
tions under their charge.
This leads them to liiscriniiw te in
their choice of professors and teachers
and those are likely to be chosen who
lack the faculty of original thinking
and full intellectual development and
highest culture.. Men subservient
enough to regulate their utterances und
smother their convictions of righteous
ness and truth to suit the views of a
niuJli millionaire are not apt to be of a
very high order, and we need the very
highest and best material in teachers
for the coming generation, if the nation
is to be saved from the consequences of
past and present mistakes in the man
agement of its aitairs. There is no need
of any starvation in a country teeming
with plenty, or of sti iking workmen or
of men out of work in a country full of
undeveloped resources such as this.
These things are not inevitable as so
many people seem to imagine. These
things can be prevented, together with
the existence of 'multi-millionaires by
right management.
To discharge a professor from a uni
versity, one acknowledged to be a man
of culture and whose talents as a tea?h
er were recognized by Ins associates in
the amversily work and by the students
and the president himself to be of a
very high order, because his views on
the subject of a railroad strike and mu
nicipal ownership of public needs diJ
not coincide with the views held bv the
president of a railroad corporation and
manager of a gas trust cornnanv. is an
outrage on the intelligence of the nine
teenth century.
Prof. Ueniis, tha teacher iu question
was not only all that we have described
but also a man of high personal charac
ter and yet he was discharged from the
Chicago university.
Prof. Uemis is not a socialist; he is
not even advanced enough tons a popu
list, but he thinks it would be wie that
our cities should gradually come to own
in the interests of the people, the street
car lines, water works and gas works
as is done in the cities of Cilasgow and
ttirmingham. For this utterance ' the
then president of the so-called gas trust
refused in 1 103 to render a linancial
favor to the university becmse I'rof.
Memis was on the faculty.''
For writing a monograph on this sub
ject in the Review of Reviews the mana
ger of the largest aggregation of pas
works said to him "If we can't convert
you we are going to down you.'
Wen l'rof. llemis asserted that "the
university ought to be in i-lom touch
I with the labor question and monopoly
j problems." President Harper replied:
j "Yes, it is valuable work, and you are a

A wealthy and leading trustee id' the
university spoke on one occasion ' of

(iov. Altgeld wnins up the result of
Clevclandiiini as follows:
"Iowa went democratic several times
but two years ago it went republican by
IllOOO. This vear when the democrat
held their state convention it was pack
ed by postmasters and the agents of the
administration, and they adopted a
platform endorsing Cleveland's policy
on the money question, und as a result
the great republican majority of two
years ago will be doubled. In Ken
tucky, the great strength of democracy,
tne administration, by proper distnbu
tion of patronage, secured an indoise
mentof Cleveland und Carlisle on the
money question and as a result thi
democrats are in the woods looking for
tho remains of their once, mighty party.
Ii Ohio, Senator jlrice and Campbell
d deated the silver plunk in tho conven
tion and adopted a gold plat form,
and the phenomenal republican maior-
ity which McKinley got two years ago
has been increased. In Pennsylvania
the democrats adopted a gold platform,
aim uie result is a republican majority
ofir0,000. In New Jersey, which is
really a democratic state, the democrats
adopted a gold platform and the repub
licans carried everything insight. In
Maryland, which has been strongly
democratic for a quarter of a century
there is not enough left to bury the
dead. In New York republican major
ities, outsiile the city, have been nearly
doubled. In Massachusetts the rennh-
hcan flood is neck deep all over the
"I have found that everywhere all the
men who toil with their hands for a liv
ing feel a most intense bitercess against
the federal administration, and as the
democratic party is held responsible for
it there was a general disposition to
kick it.
'Among the democrats everywhere
the feeling prevails that tnis adminis
tration has trampled upon every prin
ciple of democracy and has simply done
dirty work for the lepnblican party."
The question for ;ov. Altgeld to de
cide is whether he will continue to help
tio me dirty work of the republican
party by endeavoring to keep up the or
ganization of the democratic party and
thereby divide the opposition to the
Sherman-Cleveland program. If there
were no Tellers in the republican party
and no Altgelds and Rryans in the dem
ocratie party, the Sherman Cleveland
Rothschilds gang could be snowed un

IIo Talks Things Over With Himself.
John Farmer drove into tovn wita
forly bushels of oats and soil them for
81.10. With the money ho bought 1257
pounds of coal. It was an exchange of
12S0 pounds of oats for 1257 pounds of
coal. He cave little more th:in n noun,!
" ----- . ,
of oats for a pound of coal. That was
his trade. He got, nothimr for deliver-
ing the oats or coal. .He g t, .nothing
for his lime, tho wear of his team or the
or the grind of his wagon in making
the trip to town. On his way home
John fell into a conversation with him
self. He talked out loud for he va
alone. Ills soliloquy ran along (some
what after this fashion. "How is this?
A pound of oats for a pound of coal. I
raised those oats on an ucra of land
which cost me t wenty dollars. Ten per
out interest on this money, which is
the interest I pay on the money I owe. is
200. The tax on this acre of land i i
twenty cents. It took me a half day to
put in these oats and the work was
worth 81.50. The seed cost me 81. The
harvesting Including the inachine.twine,
shocking and stacking cost at leas;. $t.
The thrashing cost ?1. Adding these
items I (hid that tho load of oats which
boiurht this 1 157 pounds of cal cost me
8H.70, which is at the rate of $lo.C a
The price of anything is what it costs
to get it and bo while the nominal price
of Rock Springs coal is only S7 a ton,
its real price to the farmer is SIOCCj. In
the same way if I hud bought Miiir or
coffee or tea or dry goods my purdiasa
would have cost me a third more than
the nominal price. I ilnd that I sold
forty bushels oats for 82 30 less than
ihey cost me to rafoe them. Now in
making this estimate I am not count
ing anything for total loss of crop
last year. 1 have not reckoned anything
for misfortunes. This is on the basis of a
good crop every year and no sickness or
bad luck. 1 would not ciro so much
for all this if I was living comfortably.
If the family was properly clothed and
fed, if we had a house lit to live in. but
as a matter of fact we are not living.we
are simply existing. If we were laying
up someting, if we were paving dtibt
and if we had any outlook or hope for
the luture it would bo different, but we
are not only layng up nothing and saving
nouiing on tne debts but we are getting
behind at the rate of $2.30 for eve-v
acre of the land we live on. We paid
$20 an acre for the farm but as a matter
of fact if we had been paid 82 3 1 an
acre to live on the farm with the privil
ege of getting all out of it that there is
in it, we would then only have had a
lighting chance lor a Jiving. Then per
haps by close economy and hard wui k
we might then be able to live comfort
ably. We might t hen be able to build
a house ht to live in, we might have
what we need to eat and w ear and read,
we might educate the children, but
it is a farm is a burden, and a farmci
lite is a profitless drudgery."
Just as John Farmer reached this
point in his soliloquy ho found himself
rounding in to the place he called his
home, As hcjlighfed from tho wagon
his voice lowered into a w hisper and as
he lifted the lid of the coal box he slid
''We will talk this thing over in the
family tonight."
