"Transportation being a means of ex
change and a public necessity, the gov
erumeut should own and operate the
railroads in the interest of the people."
A potent argument used by railroad
attorneys and henchmen, in reply to
complaints of railroad oppression, is
that the people cannot get along with
out the railroads. That is in a measure
true. Without means of ready transpor
tation for the products of their toil the
people cannot prosper as they have the
right to. But this is one of the strongest
arguments for government ownership.
Anything which is necessary for -the wel
fare of all the people should never be
placed exclusively in the hands of a part
of the people by the government. Thia
abuse has led to most of the oppressive
monopolies which exist among mankind.
But railroad building requires such a
large outlay of money that no individual
orcompany will undertake their building
without such exclusive privilege. It is
therefore necessary, to save the people
from needless and grasping oppression,
that the railroads should be owned and
operated by the government only.
This, I believe, is now conceded by a
large majority of the people. But it is
objected that though possible in theory
it is impracticable. It is claimed that
however just and Expedient govern
ernment ownership might have been
at the first, there is now such
immense amounts of capital in
vested in the railroads that the govern
ment is unable to buy them even if the
companies were willing to sell; that the
government could not afford, anyway,
to pay the prices which . the companies
would ask, and a sale forced by tbe gov
ernment or at a price not voluntarily
agreed upon by both parties, would be
unconstitutional and therefore void, as
well as unjust.
But ihese conclusions chiefly arise from
the assumption that the railroad system
is like the common business of the people
and therefore subject to the same rules.
This assumption is not true. They are
authorized by special charters, issued on
the expressed, or implied, conditions
that the railroads should be built and
operated in the interests of the people;
and, like other conditioned privileges,
when the conditions are broken the privi
leges should be forfeited.
The objection that the government is
unable to buy the railroads on account
of the vast investment of capital therein
is based on a misconception of the facts
in the case.
The estimated cost of the railroads in
the United States is about $30,000 per
mile. The present estimated worth is
considerably less.
The bonds issued ostensibly for build
ing the roads averaire $32,146 per mile.
Aggregate about $5,500,000,000. Now
tbe very fact that the companies have
issued stock to the amount of about the
worth of the roads, that they have re
ceived grants of land and money from
the people and the government sufficient
to pay a large part of the value of the excess of the value of the roads,
and now aim, in their charges for trans
portation, to collect from the people who
patronize them a high rate of interest on
thesuraof the bonuses, stocks and bonds,
proves that they are managing the roads
for their own rapid emolument without
any regard to the interests of the people
or the principles of common business
honesty. This being the case and their
charters having been thereby justly for
feited, the only question remaining to
solve is this: How may the railroads be
transferred from the present owners to
the government without adding to the
burdenaof the people, and at the same
time without violating the constitution
of our country, or commonly accepted
principles of statutory law?
In the first place the charters should be
revoked by act of congress. Then the
roads should be condemned for sale for
the use of the people. They should then
be appraised at their actual value. The
government should buy them at
their appraised value, and as in other
similar cases the bonds should first be
paid off. As these, exceed the value of
the roads, the legal obligations of the
government would be fully discharged
and the ownership revert to the govern
ment, to which it rightfully belongs. I
know it will be objected by some that
such a course would wrong the innocent
stockholders. But we must remember
tat in ordinary business transactions
that man would be considered unfit to
transuct business if he should buy pro
perty which was already bonded for
more than it was worth, and if he pur
chased the stock before the bonds were
given he would be a party to the same
and could not claim the role of innocent
In regard to the inability of the people
to pay for the roads; the cost to the peo
ple for their use under the present system
is sufficient to fully pay for them in less
than 15 years with a reasonable rate of
interest on the purchase money, while the
payment in legal tender notes would
create no burden for the people but the
responsibility of supporting and protect
ing the government. II.

The flation Hears What It Should Heat
From Jnitioe Brown
His Remarkable Address to The Law
Graduates at Yale College in Which
He Describes Our Situation
He Talks as a Populist Would
Associate Justice Henry B. Brown, of
the United States Supreme Court, ad
dressed tbe graduating law class of Yale
College week before last, and spoke so
plainly and forcibly that good citizens
must needs be moved by what be said.
Hissupportof the Populist demands, vir.
government ownership of natural mono
polies, isa most complete answer to those
who are afraid of anything socialistic,
The one way out of our difficulties is to
gradually enlarge the sphere of govern
ment services until it shall have control
of all natural monopolies and perfectly
organized industries.
"While the signs of the material devel
opment and prosperity of the country
were never more auspicious than at the
present, it is not to be denied that the
tendmicies of the past thirty years have
produced a state of social unrest which
auirurs ill for the future tranquility. The
processes of combination have resulted
not only in putting practically the entire
manufacturing industry ot tne country
in the hands of corporations, but have
enabled the latter to put an end to com
petition among themselves by the crea
tion of trusts to monopolize the produc
tion of a particular article. Upon the
other hand, labor, taking its cue from
capital, though more, slowly, because
less intelligent and alert to its own in
terests, is gradually consolidating its
various trade unions, with the avowed
object of dictating the terms upon which
the productive and transportation in
dustry of the country shall be carried on
The reconciliation of this strife, if recon
ciliation be possible, is the great social
problem which will confront you as you
enter upon the stage of professional life.
"While I feel assured that the social
disquietude does not point to the des
truction of private property, it is not
improbable that it will result in the
gradual enlargement of the functions of
government and to the ultimate control
of natural monopolies. If the govern
ment may be safely intrusted with the
transmission of our letters and p apers, I
see no reason why it may not also with
our telegrams and parcels, as is almost
universally the case in England, or with
our passengers and freight, a state
ownership of railways, as in Germany,
France, Austria, Sweden and Norway. If
the state owns its highways, why may it
not also own its railways? If a munici
pality owns its streets and keeps them
paved, sewered and cleansed, why may it
not also light them, water them and
transport its citizens over them?
"Such at least is the tendency of mod
ern civilization in nearly every highly
civilized state but our own, whose great
corporate interests, by parading the bug
bears of 'paternalism' and 'socialism,'
have succeeded in securing franchises
which , properly belong to the public.
Tli9 fear, too, that these monopolies
might be used for political purposes has
hitherto proved an insuperable objection
to their exercise by the state, but the de
velopment of civil service reform has of
late been so rapid and satisfactory that
its introduction into this new field of use
fulnesswould follow asa matter of course
and would obviate the most formidable
difficulty in the way of the proposed
"Universal suffrage, which it was con
fidently supposed would inure to the
benefit of the poor man, is so skillfully
manipulated as to rivet his chains and
to secure to the rich a predominance in
politics never enjoyed under a restricted
system. Probably in no country in the
world is the influence of wealth more po
tent than in this, and in no period of our
history has it been more powerful than
now. So far as such influence is based
upon superior intelligence and is exerted
for the public good, it is doubtless legiti
mate; so far as it is used to secure to
wealth exceptional privileges, to trample
upon the rights of the publie, to stifle
free discussion, or to purchase public
opinion by a subsidy of the press, it in
vites measures of retaliation which can
scarcely fail to be disastrous."
After referring to the manner in which
corporate powers are secured and used
for dishonest purposes, Justice Brown
"Worse than this, however, is the com
bination of corporations in so-called
trusts to limit production, stifle compe
tition and monopolize the necessities of
life. The extent to which this has already
been carried is alarming -the extent to
which it may hereafter be carried is revo
lutionary. Indeed, the evils of aggregat
ed wealth are nowhere seen in more
odious forms. If no student can light
his lamp without paying tribute to one
company; if no house-keeper can buy a
pound of meat or of sugar without swell
ing the receipts of two or three all-per
vading trusts, what Is to prevent the en
tire productive industry of the country
becoming ultimately absorbed by a hun
dred gigantic corporations?" .
Kentucky Populists In State Conven
tion Demand Free Sliver Coinage
Louisville, July 5. The state conven
tion of Kentucky Populists met in its
second day's session today and adopted
a platform reaffirming the Omaha plat
form. It also demands as follows:
"A demand for free and uulimited coin
age of silver on a 16 to 1 ratio without
askinir the assistance of Great Britain.
"A demand that national banks be
abolished and the national government
issue legal tender notes for silver.
"A demand that the addition to the
natioual debt by interest bearing bonds
be stopped.
"The recent Democratic issue of bonds
which. were sold to tbe Rothschilds is de
clared an infamy.
"A demand that the parity of legal
i i 1 ; x -1 1
tenaer money ue maintaineu.
"A demand that it be unlawful for con
gress to stipulate any kind of money in
payment of debts.
"A demand for an amendment to the
United States constitution to provide for
an income tax. Itdeclaresthat they view
with alarm the recent acts of congress in
regard to the bank tax, and trusts that
the will of the people will be sustained uy
a reversal of these decisions.
"A demand that the trusts be crushed.
"Demands retrenchment in every part
of the government."
Afterlistening to the women and debat
ing the question at length, the woman's
rights planks were overwhelmingly re
jected by the convention.
So Says an Eminent Lawyer and
"There is no such thing as law," was
the surprising and comforting piece of
information given by Governor Clark of
Arkansas to the graduates of the law de
partment of the Arkansas University
last week. The governor had just pre
sented diplomas to the young men, which
the recipients might naturally suppose
were evidence that they knew some law,
as a result of several years of study.
GoyernorClark explained that there were
some rules accepted as law, but these
were so complex in principle as to render
the law a myth. Ninety per cent of ap
pealed cases could be decided either way,
lie averred, and lawyers on the bench
were frequently divided on the question
of what is the law.
Every merchant, manufacturer, work
inginan and farmer in the land ought to
read Mr. Clark's statement until he has
committed it to memory.
It is their misfortune that they believe
that there is such a thing as law. It is
only a hoodoo interpreted by judges to
suit themselves or the men that hired
them. The great monopolies haveunder

Land and Money.
, The profit, so-called, which is strictly
the result of effort, physical or mental, is
obviously subject to world-wide competi
tion, and must therefore conform to the
general living standard prevailing in the
trade or profession concerned. It is
wrong, therefore, and misleading, to
speak of such increase as profit, for an
equivalent must have been rendered, ap
proximately at least, in each case. But
a consideration of rent and interest
brings us face to face with an entirely dif.
ierent problem.
These two leading factors of the indus
trial situation (land and money), one the
seat of all production, the other the chief
instrument of exchange, not being the
product of, or producible by individuals,
it follows that any increase derived from
the mere possession, or loaning of them,
is pure gain, and the loaner being still in
full possession of all his natural ability
to produce, or distribute, retaining still
his full power to compete, is clearly occu
pying a position of advantage. On tbe
other hand it is obvious that the bor
rower is reversely, in exact proportion,
at a disadvantage.
So long as the mere possession of an
article enables the possessor to acquire a
clear gain, a gain not subject to redistri
bution in any degree through living or
other expenses, so long must wealth con
tinue to accumulate, with almost mathe
matical precision, in the hands of a con
stantly diminishing number.
I may be over sanguine, but I believe
the general recognition of these facts will
far transcend, in human benefit, the dis
coveries and uses of steam and electric
ity. Given perfect freedom to produce and
distribute, on equitable terms, with the
advantage of modern invention in ad
dition, who can predict the result, and
its significance, physically or spiritu
ally? '

Editor Wealth Makers:
In regard to my paper, I cannot pay
for my subscription until I harvest a
crop. I have had two failures of crops,
one following another. If you care to
send the paper until then, all right. A
dollar is as scarce as hens' teeth up here.
I wish to tell you a thing or twoabout
our party up lere. When our tickets
came out on election day all our converts
from the Republican party which we had
labored for the last two or three years,
bolted, saying: "I am not going to vote
a Democrat ticket." So we got left when
we might have been solid Independent.
There are a great many Republicans here
that acknowledge the Republican party
is not what it ought to be, but will not
come over to the independents for the
reason of the ballots being marked fus
ion. It this cannot be stopped any other
way, why can't the Independents have
their caucuses and conventions after the
Democrats, so they can't endorse the
candidates of our party? Why can't the
Independent party send a committee on
the day the ballots are printed and see
that our party is not imposed on?
Yours truly,

America's Uncrowned King;.
The uncrowned king of America has re.
turned from his trip across the sea. Par
nell used to be called an "uncrowned
king," but he held his place on sufferance
ot popular approval, and so was no true
king. President Cleveland is at times re.
furred to by his enemies as a "czar," but
the duration of his powers is fixed, and
he is no true king. The real uncrowned
king of America is one who is not de
pendent upon popular approval, ,s the
duration of whose powers is not fixed,
who is obliged to account. to no one for
bis movements, and who dictates not
only to politicians but to railroad mag
nates, bankers, and trusts, and who by a
nod of his head and a turn of his wrist
decrees the rise or fall of values, the ebb
or flow of prosperity. There is but one
such man, and his name is J. Pierpont
Morgan. To him the president appealed
when this nation of seventy-five millions
was floundering on tbe verge of bank
ruptcy. He heard the appeal, set hisown
price on his services, and extended the
costly protection of his kingly arm. He
went to England, and lot those who had
been selling out American securities be
gan to buy. He spake and the gold
ceased to leave thecountry. He returned
and when he set foot upon the western
hemisphere the planet tipped. The stock
exchange almost ceased to do business
until he was heard from in a public state
ment. Tbe railroad presidents hastened
to him in a body, prostrated themselves
and cried, "Help us or we perish." Trust
magnates came and cried unto him, "Un
less you reorganize us, we are lost"
Nothing like this man's apparent power
has been seen since the republic was born.
It is hardly an exaggeration to say that
the nation's prosperity depends as much
upon what J. Pierpont Morgan says and
does as upon the condition of the crops
or the decrees of congress. The fact may
not be discreditable to him. On the con
trary, it is due to undoubted financial
genius, which has been exerted for the
most part, not as Jay Gould's was ex
erted, in wrecking great enterprises, but
in sustaining and developing them. He
was not responsible that the government
got into a bog and had to call for help..
He was not responsible that the railroads
were unable to adjust their differences
and had to appeal to him. Scanning his
conspicuous record for the last fewyears,
we do not see what there is to reproach
him for. But, all the same, there is no
more alarming symptom of industrial,
economical, and financial disease than
the tremendous powers that have become
vested in this man. What system is this
that concentrates in tbe hands of a single
individual the power of life and death al
most upon a nation's industries? We
have done away with crowned monarchs,
and, politically, we have a republic.
What, in all soberness, we ask, is this
fact to avail us if we retain an industrial
system that gives to us in place of a
political monarch or a political oligarchy
a financial monarch or a financial olig
archy of more unbounded sway over the
destinies of the people thanemperorsand
kings ever expect to wield ? It is time to
do some thinking I Voice.
