by demonetizing silver and thu in le

The United Htatea by that mean wa

The financial dependence upon England

Tbe hand of tbe United State being

Jl proceeded in tbe last 30 year with
marvelous rapidity to enslave tbo hu

abject slavery tban ever existed or ever

ingabfrbed under public oontrol for
public purpose, wherever the collective
organization of tbo commonwealth is
being employed la place of individual
effort, wherever in tbe public interest
the free use of private laud or capital la
being further restrained, there i one
more step toward the complete realia
tiou of the ideal being taken.
"And these principle properly ap
plied demand, among other thing, the
national ownership of the railroad. Ho
all powerful have thoy become that tbe
question of their oontrol in the future
is one vital to the people' interest.
"The railroad bring us in the United
State to a turning point in civilization,
at which there must be a new assertion
of tbe people's power or a fatal losa of
liberty. With us public control without
publio ownership is an impossibility.
Ownership must precede control, aud
ore long, too, or those who own tbe
railroads will own the government.
We have over 230,000 mile of railroad,
controlling $400,000,000 of property
and $900,000,000 gross revenue, and
having power and influence over leg
islature and over business interest
truly gigantic.
"The railroad companies work with
other monopolies. The 'Big Four,' a
Chicago combination of Armour and
three other firm, control tbe whole meat
Sid cattle trade of the country, dictating
e freight rate on land and sea, con
trolling markets, freezing out small
holders and middlomen and providing
an unhealthy and abnormal condition
in the grain as well as cattle and dress
ed meat trade. Buch a condition of
things could not have existed in other
countries where publio oontrol i tbe
"The interstate ootnmoroo commis
sion has dono something to better these
conditions, but its success has only boon
partial. It ha been embarrassed by too
littlo power, and power difllcult to use. "
Tbe advantages of government own
ership, Air, i'umpelly held, are many.
"It would," ho said, "give the death
blow to the greatest lobby that ever
existed. There would be no more strikes,
no more cut downs. It would give em
ployment to 1,600,000 men iu addition
to the 760,000 now employed. It would
treat all alike, as In our postofllces. It
would save the lives of muny now sao
rlfloud every year for tbe want of a more
humane system of supervision. It would
take tbe roads out of polities, with their
corrupting aud debauching methods. It
would transport freight at one fourth
the present charges. As the express
busiues would also go into the hand
of the natiim with tbe railroad It
would save $3,000,OUO or mure yearly

Carpet weavers say they have never
had so fnuch work bi-fore in one eaaon
as they hav this spring. Muny houno
koeper who Intended to buy ingrain
carpet to put down after the spring
boufto cleaning, found they would coat
more than they could afford to pay for
them, so they have made useful and
handsome floor ooverlng out of what
would otherwise been put In the rag bag
or left to I'Oinlwr tbe attlo or closet.

pot one can have In the dining room or
