THE WEALTH MAKERn
WILL FIGHT FOR FOOD
Several Women and Two Little Girl
Are Injured la the Battle tor
Provision to guttata Life
New Yokk, Nov. 21. There wa a scene
toilay at the hotneof the relief committee
of striking cloak makers that will not
oou be forgotten by those who witness
d it. This place is a small store with a
narrow door at 112 Ludlow street. Here
tofore the committee has beeu giving out
nothing but rye bread and stale bologna
sausages, but yesterday it was announc
ed that every Wednesday and Saturday
hereafter the committee would give out
groceries to those holding relief tickets
nd who have families who are really in
a destitute coudition.
The place is under charge of George W.
Jones, a cutter by trade, who thoroughly
ouderatands these people and knowsj
consequently, how to deal with them.
Long before the doors opened today an
excited multitude of men, women and
children, most of them bearing boxes and
basket, blocked the east aide of Ludlow
street for more than a block about 112.
The near-by grocers whose entrances
were choked by the crowd looked daggers
at the poor wretches standing almost
shoeless in the mud with the rain pouring
down upon their unprotected heads ana
shoulders. It was a pitiable sight.
When the door finally opened at 9 o'
clock there was a rush that completely
upset all of Mr. Jones' plans and he was
perfectly helpless iu trying to restrain
the seething, steamiug mass of hysterical
humanity, who made a concerted rush
for the interior of the place. Those who
arrived first, however, fared badly, for
they were torced up against the rude
counter placed across the store by pres
sure of the mob behind, until their breath
was all but crushed out of them.
There were loud screams of pain, when,
luckily for the injured ones, the counter
;gave way with a crash and at least fifty
people were precipitated to the floor and
there mingled with bread, potatoes, her
ring and sugar, lu the wild scramble
which immediately took place to secure
the coveted food the animal in the hu
man being came to the surface. Each
struggler for food seemed for a moment
to forget its presence on thefloorandhad
only in mind the fearful possibility that
his or her nearest neighbor would secure
it first, and almost by common instinct
each of the hulf-starved wretches turned
.fiercely upon the other and ageneral riot
Then Mr. Jones and his lieutenants
charged on the invading army and after
some hard uage succeeded in driving
them back and restoring order. Several
women and two little g.rls were more or
less injured, but none seriously. The
other women and children made the air
ring with their cries of fright. When the
distribution began everyone holding a
.yellow ticket was supplied with two
quarts of potatoes, one pound of loaf
.sugar, one quarter pound of coffee, four
tlierrings in brine, and one or two loaves.
A meeting of the strikers was held this
evening at Walhalla hall, at which Mr.
Barondess presided. There was no
change in the situation, aud the com
mittee reported everything quiet
The Christian Life
To begin a Christian life id to quit liv
ing for self and to begin living forotbers.
It is to take up the cross, which is th
measure of sacrifice and suffering re
quired in entering fully into the Christian
life. To follow Christ is nothing less than
to bear this cross daily. The cross is the
emblem of the suffering aud sacrifice in
volved in the redemption of the world
The sufferings and sacrifice of Chris
while on earth were not all that is re
quired iu the salvation of the world
Every man who becomes a Christian be
comes a member of the body of Christ
"If one member of this body suffers th
whole body suffers with it" Christ be
ing the head -of this body, of course suffer
with every member, feels every pain and
tantes every sorrow which is experienced
by every member of the body.
Paul in a letter to his fellow Christians
at Colosae, said: "I rejoice in my suffer
ings for you, and till up that which it
behind of the afflictions of Christ in mj
flesh for his body's sake, which is the
church." This body, the church, em
braces all the saved, and fills up to its
fullness the "cup of suffering" which is
necessary to complete the work of atone
ment and redeem the world. Paul felt
that to save the world, so much suffering
and sacrifice was necessary, and hi.
seemed to be filled with an ambition to
drink more of the cup and make more o.'
the sacrifice than any other member oi
the body. . Christ is always omnipresent
in this body, every member is crucified
with him, every member is filled with his
spirit and has his mind, every, member
has fellow-ship with bin suffering and wirb
the afflictions that afflict every othei
member of the body.
'The members of this body are harmoni
ous. There is no competition between
them; they co-operate and serve each
other completely, just as the hands and
feet and different members of the natural
body serve each other. They bear one
another's burdens and so fulfill the will
of the head of the body which is Christ.
Such a church is thelightandonly Savior
of the world. There is no room for con
troversy. The only question is how to
realize such a visible church. Is it possi
ble under our system of competition?
Is there any room and chance under
present industrial conditions to set up
such a church and cive liberty to mani
fest itself. Cedar Rapids Republican.

Ttin lnr!e Lies
Editor Wealth Maueiw:
When Simon Peter denied being even
acquainted with Jesu, ufter being his
student for years, listening to his just
and gentle teaching. Christ did not send
swift death to him. It was only a look
that sent poor Peter out to weep bitterly
until the resurrection morn, when he
sent the tender-of-heart women to tell
"my disciples and Peter that I am
arisen." 0 what a sweet pardon to be
again considered a disciple of the mas
ter, and he did outrun the rest, never
agaiu would he consider personal safety
more than the truth.
When Ananias and Sapphira his wife
sold their worldly possessions and fear
ing that the method of Christ's disciples
"having all things common" might prove
a failure, kept back a part aud de
nied the fact and instant death followed
each denial, why was there no compas

this lie of purely self interest ugainst the

is heaven iu life now, and not in some

over heads and hearts ready to obey for

The Proposed Currency Scheme
The weakness of the president's plan is
not that it would not greatly increase
the volume of ths circulating medium of
the country, for it would. It is radically
wroug because it delivers over to a single
privileged class, the bankers, the enor
mous profit ou this addition to the circu
lating medium, and, furthermore, be
cause it leaves the currency still upon the
insufficient single-gold basis. In the ulti
mate under the president's plan all this
vast addition to the nation's currency
would be redeemable in gold, and bankers
would still have it in their power to de
mand a bigger gold reserve und to set in
motion "that endless chain constantly
depletiug the treasury gold and never
neiir a final rest" which the president de
plores in his message. Chicago Times.
