Were I to treat this subject exhaust
ively I should be compolkd t oupy
too much space. Yet I sometimes Jeel
that iUoh esbaustlve consideration of
the subject from my standpoint 1 new,
ary la order to a clearing of the way
(or the greater reforms eo urgently
needed by the iople throughout the
clrlllwd world; not that my suggestions
could have such wide Hsct, but the neod
le urgent for a wide discussion of every
phaMof the reform question from every
standpoint. My discussion will, there
fore, be rather suggestive than complete:
and I shall boil down my point as much
as possible.
I. The chief causa of Industrial distress
and the killing struggle for existence
among the millions today le the partial
monopoly of Ji be means of production
and th complete monopoly of all the
means of distribution, by the already
wealthy. ;
2. The over-mastering power of mon
opoly is due, not alone to denial of sil
ver free coin age. but to the existence of
all of the wonderful and hitherto un
known Improvements In machinery and
transportation facilities, including the
transmission of intelligence; and the con
trol of all these by the wealthy,
for the first time in the history of the
world, manual labor and muscle hare
taken a back seat and the machine bus
taken their place. This would be highly
benellcent exoept for tbe fact that:
8. Tbe already wealthy own the ma
chine and thereby secure the chief and
much largest advantage from modern
Improvements and Invention. This is
a new factor in the industrial world. It
was never so before. Improved machin
ery would be a great blessing to human
ity if this were not so; and and under a
system of equal distribution, or just
distribution, cue won a win yet euioj
great blessings from tbe use of all im
proveinenU in macbinirry and transpor
4. Ownership of the machine results In
wealth owning tbe labor of the artisan.
6. Whoever owns ths labor of the pro
ducer owns him, for all practicable pur
, poses.
0. Ths other factor in tbe problem Is
foaud in ths control of legislative and
administrative affairs by organized
wealth whereby special privileges are
Illustration of both propositions: Oo
Jon 17, IBM, L. M. Rockwood, an oil
producer ol Zeliuople, I'a., was on the
witness stand befors tbe industrial coin
misnion engagnd in the investigation of
tbe (Standard Oil company and among
other things be said, substantially: in
its war against independent oil refiners
ths Standard Oil Co. bad an arrange
ment with tbe railroad companies where
by ths general public paid 91.00 pur
barrel freight on tbe oil, while the com
pany paid only thirty five cents. This
saving to the company enabled It to
make a profit of 400 per cent and so
destroy competitor. la l years five
trunk line of railroad paid ba:k to tbe
company the sura ol 9(1,000,000 la re
bates on freight charges.
He said, further, that all railroads in
tbe country were practically in one trust
and that they. were in control of politics
contributing millions to sleet legislators
and Judges, lis made tbe charge that
a New York judge bad been elevatod to
the court of appeals by tbe corporations
through the uss of a corruption fund,
because of bis action in a certain case
between ths railroad combination and
the oil refiners.
Huuh combination were not possible
Mir fears ago. Mucn opportunities lor
controlling courts aid not exlttt in this
country Uity years ago. Wealth has
seized upon invention and Improve
ments and Is using them with a mighty
1 power to enslave labor and to pocket an
unjust snare of tue production o! lu
7. Tbe closing of the mints to silver
was ouly one of the many monopolistic
measures seised upon by n to c
tablisb its dominion tbe mors firmly.
Tbe evil of "deinonetizutiun," so called
lies in its monopolistic feature. Hy lens
ening the supply ol primary money It is
easier for wealth to control the world's
money; and tins was the purpose of It.
8. To cut off free silver coIuhk wus no
greater svil than for . governments as
. widely to confer mouey creating posers
noon banks. A quarter ol the world s
Uiouey Is pap r, a third of it would under
IreecoinaK of silver and gold, be silver.
To the intent ol this one-quarter: it is
Juat s tuUcbievoU to deli ante to the
banks the power to creeje money ns lor
ths ustion to shut out silver from lb
tniuts to that extent. It Is simply
question ol ths bask control ol the

system, wherein tbe man, not tbe dollar,

the weak cannot be crushed to death un

struggle for existence; wherein the whole
nation shall stand for a Inst distribution
to all toilers of tbe wealth created by
them; wherein tbe man, shall be lifted
above tbe machine, not made its slave,
wherein every line of business naturally
monopolistic shall be operated by tbe
whole people for the good of all.

The Independent does not endorse all
that Its correspondents sny, by any
means. Its pngs are an opon forum for
the discussion of economics and politics,
It lota every man have bis say, Dy
means of honest argument we will at
last arrive at the truth. Tbe editor of
the Independent denies the truth of No.
11, and the latbtr part of No. 13 in tbe
above article. Iu what does the wealth
of (he of the vastly rich consist? Is it
not almost wholly made of written con
tract to deliver "money" at some future
time? From what source do tbey draw
their enormous Income? Is It not
wholly from Interest upon these promises
to pay bonds, mortgage, etc. that
that income Is derived.
Who pays this interest? Tbe producer
In every case. It the crops fail for two
year and no Interest will be paid by any
one and no income will be gathered In
by tbe wealthy. How do tbe producer
pay this interest? By selling the pro
duct and buying money with tbem. Now
if it requires ouly half a much products
to buy the money to pay this interest,
will not the remainder stay in tbe bands
of tbe producer? That will not "In
crease the wealth of tbe millionaires'
but roduoo It one-half. That will In
crease tbe wealth of tbe producers and
reduce tbe wealth of the millionaires, If
prices are doubled It will only require
one-half as much of ths products ol
labor to pay tbe Interest as It does now.
riie way to double prices Is
to double tbe rolume of money
In circulation by the free coinage ol
sliver or Issue paper money.
If ths free coinage of silver would "in
crease ths wealth of tbe millionaires,"
why do tbey all object to it? An tbe
millionaire so stupid that tbey do not
know what Is for their own Interests?
Or are tbey philanthropists wbo fight
tbe free coinage of ilver (or ths benefl
of tbe poor and at their own loss?"

R. Yes, we were forced into the wer
with the Filipinos. Dewey went down
to Manila Bay and suuk tbe Spanish
fleet without anv orders and as Dewey
is a democrat you see wbo is responsible
lor this war.
P. Didn't McKinley order Dewey to go
and hunt tbe Hpanisb fleet and sink it,
and now you say he did it without or
ders. Didn't tbe president tell Dewey to
stick to bis post until he sent blm rein
forcements? It. Oh, you are inconsistent on thl
point and would like to throw all tin
blame of this war on tbe administration
when you know we wore forced Into war
with the negroes. We didn't want to
fight but we had to or be branded es
cowards. '
P. Ho yoa were forced into war with
the Filipinos. 1 don't see who forced the
administration into war with them.
There Is no act of congress that we know
of that declared war against the negroue
In tbe Philippines.
II. Oh, you don't talk with consisten
cy. You would like to pat all tbe blanm
of this war upon the republican part.v
now when tbe war was forced on us. and
we as a party can't help it and we
wouldn't il we could.
IV That Is just what we expeted you
would do, try to throw tbe blame of tin
war on the democrats. They didn't
tell Dewey to hold his position. You
administration fellows have an elephant
on your" bands and you don't know bow

ft. You pop are always finding fau
with what the republicans- do, Y
blow about the big trusts like if we cou'
help it, when you know we are opposei

P. You say you are opposed to trust
If that is so why don't yoa stop then

any product "of the farm. Tbe grain
goes to tbe elevator; tbe llvs stock to
tbe local buyer, etc., but wbot to do
with the wool Is indued a puzzling Ques
tion. Most persons who have wool to
sell know that there are in all large
cities persons or firms who will take ami
are anxious to secure wool under anv
conditions; firms wbo agree voluntarily
to pay all sorts of prices and who agree
to sort, grode, store and sell wool for
almost no commission.
Many peisons, however, know from
sad experience, that most of these so
called wool commission firms earn
ineir places 01 business around undei
their bats; they have no established
place of business, no facilities for band,

A Possibility of the Superseding
of General Otis.
As PfMldeat's Beeeat Ooaferenee WUh
the VoraM Commander at Msnlto
IUeaU4 Mo VloUtlon of Military
Frseaaeat I lovolved.
VVAJHIHOT05, July 10. The Presi
dent is said to be considering the ad
visability of sending Major General
Merrltt to the Philippines to succeed
General Otis in command there. The
strong light thrown upon the conduct
of tbe campaign by the statement of
the correspondents, it is thought, es
tablishes that General Otis has
not comprehended the real situation
in the Philippines and that the Pres
ident should send another ofllcer
to conduct tbe campaign when the
rainy season terminates. When Gen
eral Otis was sent to the Philippines
It was subordinate to General Mer
rltt, one of the three major general
of tbe regular army, and a most ac
complished soldier and skillful gen
eral. Public exigencies required Mer
rltt to leave Manila to attend the ses
sions of the Paris peace conference,
and thus General Otis was put in
command. '
In addition to Merrltt are Major
General Miles and Major General
Brooke. These three officers outrank
Otis and there would be no violation
of military precedent or usage if one
of the ssnlor officers should be sent to
relieve General Otis.
It will be recalled that General Mer
rltt was invited here a few days ago
and that he had a conference with the
President There are intimations
that one of the objects of this confer
ence wa to consider the proposition
to send Merrltt back to tbe Philip
pines to command the reinforced
army. '

Pabis, July 19. Tbe Matin pub
lishes a statement from Count Ferdi
nand Walsin Esterbazy, in which he
says that be wrote tbe bordereau by
order of Colonel Sandberr, and that
it was sent to tbe house of Colonel
Schwartzkoppen, then military at
tache at the German embassy In Paris,
whence it was returned to the war of
fice, v Colonel Schwartzkoppen, bolng
at the time in Berlin, never saw the
bordereau, which was forged In order
to supply material proof of the guilt
of Dreyfus.
The statement contains tbe asssrtlon
that secret agents in Berlin, whose
testimony It was impossible to use,
bad demonstrated that leakages bad
occurred in tbe war office, and the
fact that trsason existed was nndenla
able and everything indicated Dreyfus
as the traitor.
All the war ministers, the statement
further says, know tbe facts and
thought tbe forgery of tbe bordereau
necessary, ine enaence implicating
Dreyfus were the words ol Colonel
Schwartzkoppen' mouth. General
Mercler, General DeUolsdeffre and
General God so knew that the borde
reau was forged and that Dreyfus was
Illegally but justly convicted.

President Krueyer reviewed the

the proposals of Sir Alfred Miller of
Cape Colony and the British high
commission of South Africa were too
wide, but that alterations from nine

recommended the alteration, which
