Utilities Where Expedient.
' Hon. Rudolph Kleberg of Texas
writes about trusts In The Arena for
August After discussing the causes
which create and maintain trusts he
ays: - '
Let us now consider their effect upon
civilization. First of all we have the
effects of the money trust, with Its
growing teudeucy to contract tue vol
ume of primary money and the conse
quent fall of prices of all commodities;
the burden of public and private debt
increasing as product fall In price; the
growing difficulty of the producer t
either sell at remunerative prices or
to earn money to pay Interest and
taxes and buy necessaries, let alone
paying past Indebtedness; a constantly
rising monetary standard on the one
side and a constantly falling market
on the other; the enrichment of the
money holding class and the Impover
ishment of the producing class, and
likewise the enrichment of the cred
itor class and the Impoverishment of
the debtor class; the paralysis of en
terprise and labor; the pauperiza
tion and industrial enslavement of
the masses and the undue enrich
ment of the classes; In a word, In
dustrial stagnation. 1 Second, we en
counter the effects of the transporta
tion trusts, which are chiefly of the
nature of discrimination building up
certain enterprises, municipalities,
communities, states and entire sec
tions at the expense of others; ' the
bane of the long and short haul, which
builds up enterprise at the beginning
and end of the long hnul and destroys
It at all Intermediate points, and makes
the transportation business profitable
only, by placing the high rates on the
short haul and so called local truffle.
This accounts for the success of the
great oil. coal and Iron trusts and
smaller trusts of manufacturing and
commercial enterprises. Then comes
the secret of pooling of rates among a
few great trunk lines to the detriment
of weaker lines. Last, but not least,
we find absolute dependence of the
producer upon the railways to haul
his freight at any price, no matter
whether reasonable or unreasonable.
Now we come to the manufacturing
trusts, which, on account of low prices,
press constantly upon the wages of the
laborer, make him more and more de
pendent upon bis employer, force hhu
to cut the wages of his fellow laborer
in spite of trades unions and labor fed
erations, and which constantly add to
the army of the unemployed. Thea
there are the telegraph and telephone
trusts, which coutrol the transmission
of all Intelligence, charge high rates
and Inveigh against improved anfi
cheaper Inventions and methods In the
service. There la no lack of commer
cial trusts of all descriptions, from
that which builds an armed steel cruis
er down, to a match box combine -trusts
which monopolize the whole
field of Industrial enterprise and which
produce and sell everything we use,
cat, drink and wear at such prices as
the particular enterprise will bear. It
is contended by certain people that
trusts have a tendency to cheapen and
Improve commodities. This Is an
egregious mistake. The tendency of
monopoly was never to act upon mo
tives of charity or benevolence, but
wholly on selfish principle, and if some
things are cheaper now than formerly
It Is because they cannot bo sold for
more. Neither Is ft true that the cost
of production has been materially di
minished. It Is true that some waste
Is prevented In large establishments
which necessarily takes place In
smaller ones, yet the risks of capital
have Increased and much waste occurs
In the process of concentration, in the
way of buying up old and dilapidated
plants and preventing the establish
ment of new ones. The depressing
effect upon all agricultural products Is
especially noticeable, and must con
tinue, as labor Is deprived of steady
employment and liberal wages, and as
the smaller capitalist Is crowded to the
wall by the larger one the trust Not
only are the effects of the trusts felt
Industrially, but politically as well. It
can no longer be denied that they exert
a powerful Influence upon all munici
pal, state and , national legislation, as
well as upon the machinery and ad
ministration of the laws In the courts
of the country. The popular charges
that theBe great aggregations of cap
ital sometimes warp the proceedings of
legislative assemblies and the decisions
of courts and even popular elections
have ceased to be the baseless vapor
Ingsof demagogues. It Is but too true
that often they must be Justified. They
have risen to the dignity of public dan
ger signals, which every sincere re
former will do well to heed in time.
It Is perfectly evident that the pres
ent process of concentration. If permit
ted to continue, must eventuate In ei
ther private or state socialism, either
of which would lead to disaster. Pri
vate socialism would so restrict pro
duction as to compel the consumer to
pay the highest price for commodities,
with a constantly diminishing stock of
means on bis part and make him ab
solutely dependent on the whims and
caprices of the monopolist whose In
dustrlal slave be would thus become
la the full sense of the word. State
socialism, In Its radical sense, would
possess Itself of all means of produc
tion and distribution, and thus destroy
all private property .and the Incentive
to Individual exertion. It would tend
to degrade the worker to the same
level with the drone. Its attempt at
equality would extinguish all higher
endeavor and, after a few generations
of failure, place society at the foot of
the ladder of progress, to again begin
Its toilsome ascent by the way of tho
immutable laws of evolution. Thus
we have a silent but certain, if not
speedy, transformation of the entire
Industrial system going on, which,
while perfectly quiet In its operation,
is nevertheless revolutionizing our in
dustrial life, as well as our civic Insti
tutions. What is the remedy?
Penal repression? Noi This must
fail In the future as It has in the past
Not only have many states a penal
statute against trusts, but there Is a
federal law as well, and yet the trusts
Increase rapidly every year. Free
trade? Trusts thrive in free trade Eng
land as well as they do In America.
The true reformer must resort to
means of relief which gS to the very
core of the evil and which are remedial
rather than penal or drastic In their
nature. That government is forced to
extend its activities In many direc
tions, which, under the doctrine of
lalssez falre, were believed to be en
tirely . within the province of private
effort can no longer be denied by all
who place tho welfare pf the masses
above the enrichment of the classes,
and who would prevent the growth of
the cormorant on the one hand and the
proletariat on tho other. It must also
bo borne In mind that the trusts are
not tho only product of tho great so
cial evolution that has been progress
ing since the abolition of feudalism.
The social mind and the social con
science are the two powerful factors
that the modern age of Industrialism
has evolved and placed in opposition
to commercialism. They are forces
that must now be reckoned with in
a proper solution of the great Indus
trial problem. ,
Man has come to know society as a
great living organism, . conscious to
think and act through the social mind
and conscience for the protection and
welfare of its Individual members,
with the Interests of the Individual
and society reciprocal and Identical
and harmonious. lie has come to
know that the struggle for existence
has thus reached Its secondary stage
and, shorn of Its former brutal char
acter, has assumed the more human
and softening aspect of the conflict of
mind over matter, of Justice over bruto
force. Hut the question at last be
comes a practical one, and resolves It
self Into an Inquiry of fact rather than
of doctrine. The two great cosmic
forces which we placed at the founda
tion of the manifestations of present
Industrial conditions will contlnuo to
alternate In application as they are set
free to do so by economic forces, and
there Is no danger that - their equi
librium will be destroyed as long as
they are thus liberated.
If, under normal economic condi
tions, government should either by con
trol or ownership, do that which It can
jwrform better and cheaper for society
than can the Individual, then there is !
uo reason why It should not do so. But :
government should never Interfere
where public enterprise is not a public
necessity, and does not concern the
general welfare. Here the old rule of
"so use thine own as not to injure thy
neighbor" will always remain the cor
rect doctrine and the one best calcu
lated to develop the Individual as well
as society. But the fact Is that gov
ernment has gone too far In its re
straint of the masses and its undue
favoritism of the classes, Instead of
standing for the protection of the
masses against the onslaught of the
classes under legal enactments and pri
vate franchises and privileges. This Is
not 'only so In the case of unequal tar
iffs and taxes, but Is especially so in
that legislation of this, country and
Europe, within the past '25 years,
which affects the monetary system of
this couutry ns well as tbut of Europe.
What Is wanted above everything else
Is that government should so legislate
as 'to offer an equal opportunity to
every Individual to earn 'according to
his capacity. This the trust will not
permit him to do under present con
ditions. If. however, the economic
forces were set free which produce and
maintain bimetallism, the money trust
would cease to exist, Inasmuch as the
standard of value would cease en
hancing in value as commodities fall
in value, but would attain an approxi
mately stable value, and therefore In
sure a . rising market and, finally.
stability of prices both conditions
fatal to the existence of the trust The
Industrial trust can only thrive on a
falling market and fails to pieces by
the sharp attack of competition which
a rising market Inevitably superin
duces. This again would force money
Into legitimate enterprise and also fur
nish employment to labor and break up
the present commercial congestion. Of
course, the good effects of the Institu
tion of bimetallism should be at once
re-enforced by the thorough regulation
of all transportation state and Inter
state, by rail or water and should be
brought under immediate and active
public control. As long as the federal
government cannot fix freight and pas
senger rates, classify freights, compel
Interstate connections and public ac
counting of the transportation Hues, it
were idle to talk about equal business
opportunities or prosperity for our pro
ducing masses. Add to this municipal
control, or ownership where expedient,
of waterworks, lighting plants, street
railways, etc.. and let the general and
the state governments fix the rates
also of telegraph and telephone com
panies, as well as curb and restrict the
power and operation of .all corpora
tions and encourage Individual enter
prise, and, last but not least Impose'
an effective Income tax, and you would
have set to worn agencies which would
not only remove the causes of the
trusts, but the trusts themselves.
Such remedies, might not prove en
tirely adequate to establish Industrial
freedom, but they would at least prove
a long step In the right direction, and
would naturally tend to a correct solu
tion , of the great Industrial problem
which, with the false Idea of Imperial
ism, threatens to engulf this nation In
endless confusion, If not permanent
disaster. ..
HONEST MONEY.
WHY A STUDY OF "THE MONEY QUES
TION" IS VITALLY IMPORTANT. ;
The British Barons Hare Conquered
Is With the Purse After FaillnK
With the Sword Good Paper Mon
ey Better Than Any Kind of Coin.
During our war of the rebellion there
were three kinds of war money which
stood the shock of arms to the end.
None of them were coin. Coin left
the field within the first six months.
The revolutionary government of the
south issued the best paper possible
for such a government. It was pre
cisely as good as the Issuing poW"er
no better, no . worse. It was a brave
money far better than cowardly coin.
It staid with the armies, and fought
with them 10 the bitter end, and went
down with them on the field of battle.
That paper money of the south was
rudely executed .and . edslly counter
felted. This, ol course, made It prac
tically Impossible to limit the volume
In circulation; and an unlimited money
is worthless money. Money is valuable
in proportion to limitation. If It Is pos
sible, the counterfeiters will Inflate the
money to the point of worthlessness, as
in the case of our continental currency
and the French asslgnats.
In the north there were two Borts of
paper money. The first $60,000,000
was receivable In the revenues of the
government the same as coin and legal
tender for private debts., That money
was preferred to coin during the war
and as long as It circulated. Another
class of paper money Issued during the
war, known as greenbacks, was not re
ceivable for duties on Imports nor for
interest on the public debt It was
like any other useful machine with a
number of Important bolts left out It
went below par as compared with coin
or as compared with paper without
these legal disabilities. v It sometimes
went below 50 cents on the dollar, be
cause of its legal disabilities and from
no other cause. Yet such as it was,
all the Shyloeks and the armies of the
south were beaten by It at one and the
same time. All agree that the green
back saved the life of the nation. With
gold only, (he armies would have been
paralyzed, and anarchy would have
prevailed. It would have been a con
test of swords, after the manner of
savages, with little union or adhesion
on cither side. Money Is the Instrument
of association. Without money there
Is no cohesion, and disintegration must
ensue. A perfect money will remain at
its post In limes of danger. Intrinsic
money will not do this.
Thus far 1 have discussed the power
of the purse when supporting the
sword. But these two war powers
may and do act separately. Among
savages the sword power acts without
the purse. In other cases the purse Is
Been to act alone, with tremendous ef
fect far exceeding In results the con
quests of the sword. Let me illustrate:
Suppose Great Britain should send an
Ironclad to the coast of New Jersey
and capture a bit of sandy beach on
which to erect fortifications and over
which to float the British flag. How
our American blood (would boiL That
bit of worthless sand would be re
claimed If It cost the life of every able
bodied man In America. But on the
other hand, British landlords have sent
that other war power, the purse, Into
the very heart of this nation and have
captured many thousands of acres of
the best lands on the continent with
out boiling our American blood to anyi
alarming extent Why would Great
Britain capture this country with the
Bword? The answer is plain. That she
might levy tribute on our people. Why
do British landlords capture our lands
with the purse? The answer is equally
plain. That they may levy tribute on
our people. v
Let us examine a few facts as they
exist today, black and portentlous, In
this land of boasted freedom. One
William Scully, a British landlord, has
sent his purse to America, and has ac
tually capturned some 00,000 acres of
the richest land In the state of Illinois,
and It Is said that the Americans citi
zens living on those acres are com
pelled to pay $00,000 per annum to
that British landlord for the privilege
of cultivating the American soli on
which, they and their children were
born. That Is a greater tribute than
King George expected to exact by the
sword In the days of 177G. That same
landlord, William Scully of London,
has captured several thousand acres in
Marshall county, Kan., and other
thousands of acres In other parts of
that state. All this done by that war
power known ns "the purse." It Ih
done that Mr. Scully may levy trilni'e
on our grandchildren, and that his
grandchildren may levy tribute on our
grandchildren, and so on down to the
latest generation. What more could
Mr. Scully do with the sword. If he
had all the. armies of Europe at his
back? In some parts of Colorado the
people of that state are paying tribute
to European landholders for every
blade of grass cropped by their cows
and other animals which are necessary
for the support of their families.
The public highways of a nation are
said to be tho property of the people,
Their ownership Is deemed so Impor
tant that wars are often waged for
their possession. The United States
originally paid millions of dollars for
the possession of that highway known
as the Mississippi river. At a later
date the country spent hundreds of
millions of treasure, and poured out
blood like water In order to retain
that great public highway of travel
and commerce. .
I mention these facts to show the
high estimate that is usually attached
to the great public highways of the
country. Yet strange as It may seem,
we have In this country 180.000 miles
of the most valuable and Indispensable
highways known to man, which are
bought and sold as commodities of
commerce. The railroads of this coun
try are bonded and stocked to an ag
gregate of about 1 12,000,000.000. The j
owner of that capitalization are called
the owners of the yids. Tbey have
entire conf roads and of the
travel an7 flc of this great, country.
The longest purse takes the pile (or
controlling Interest in" It) and becomes
master of the situation, "levying trib
ute at will on all dur vast Industries."
There Is ample evidence to prove that
at this momen a controlling amount
of the capitalization of our American
railroads is held In the city of Lon
don, and that the freights and fares
paid by Americans are fixed by a
British directory. Such a statement Is
humiliating, but It Is, nevertheless,
true. ; .'
I have now shown the nature and
power of moneys, both' for good and
evlL The question next arises, How
can we enjoy the good without suffer
ing the evil? I, reply, We must na
tionalize the money. We must, as
much as possible, keep it In the hands
of the people and under their control
We must not permit its issue by in
dividuals nor by corporations. The is
suing of money by the government is
a prerogative of sovereignty. The
money must be maintained in ample,
even and unfluctuating volume. To do
this It must be free from a single com
modity basis. It must . rest on the
broad basis of government revenues
and on all commodities. Its even dis
tribution In society must be favored in
every practical way. v This may be
done" by the arrangement of taxation,
so that the burdens will fall heaviest
on those best able to pay, not on the
poor nor on the products and creations
of industry, but on the large Incomes,
the large legacies and the large landed
estates of the rich. ' ;
All this can be done and through the
finances, and it is much. But we must
go further. We must free the lands of
the country from capture by the purse
of the monopolists.. The homes of our
people and the heritages of our chil
dren must not be exposed to the depre
dations anc spoliations of the money
power of the world. Land must not be
treated as a common article of traffic in
the world's commerce. We must move
in the direction of that happy day
when the poorest man will have and
hold his small home free from the in
vasions of the sheriff and the tax
collector and when "occupation and
use" will be recognized as necessary
Ingredients In title to land. We must
move in the direction of that Just and
safe era of public repose when neither
the lands of the country' nor the
public highways nor any other ne
cessity of society will be exposed to
the conquests of either the sword or
the purse. Both are fatally dangerous,
the latter especially so, because of Its
secrecy, power and merciless cruelty.
It Is like the beast In the Apocalypse-
It has the horns of a lamb, but the
speech of a venom and Bavagery of
the serpent. Thlst, then, is "the money
question." It Is the blood or the bane,
the life or the death, of civilization.
There Is a power In money -also
which no human agency can resist,
merely through changes In its quan
tity. Thqre is no engagement na
tional or individual, which is unaf
fected by it. The enterprises of com
merce, the profits of trade, the con
cerns of life, the wages of labor, the
transactions of the highest and lowest
amounts, tho payment of debts and
taxes, are all affected by the quantity
of money in circulation. There re
sides In money the most enormous
power known to man. It Is the tide
in human affairs upon which all things
must rise or fall. It Is as Irresistible
as the wings and wheels of commerce
on the high seas and the broad con
tinents, more powerful than the
thunder blasts of armadas that throb
upon the ocean or the tread of con
tinental armies, and this mighty force
Is self acting In all the large and small
transactions of men.
This Is the-concurrent testimony of
the ablest writers. Such a subject de
serves attention., Nevertheless, to pre
vent Its study, the "communism of
capital" Is arrayed In solid phalanx.
The Shylocks well know, if the peoplo
come to understand Its Import and slm-
Dlicltv. their trade, will suffer damage.
The owners of gold will be shorn of
their powers over nations and men.
The great temple of Dlnna will bo
shaken by the ground swell of rising
humanity asserting Its rights, and her
votaries will cry out In behalf of their
vocation. They will mystify the sub
ject with every art and device of satan
and blacken the names of the people'a
teachers with all the lies and epithets
so familiar to them. Yet, in spite of
their rage aud terror, "the money
question" remains a leading factor in
the problem of civilization, and It must
br Jaken Into account by all peoples
and nations engaged In solving that
Important problem. John Davis.

Value of Records to Cow Keepers.
There can be no effective economy in
dairy management, even in the man
agement of the few milk cows of the
larmer who keeps them only for his
own dairy supplies, if the cost of keep
ing and the value of the product of
each cow are not noted Very often
only the total cost and product of the
herd are noted, and as a result of this
neglect of detail individual cows that
do not pay the expense of their keeping
are retained in the herd, taking just
so much every day from the net In
come of the owner. It would not be
much trouble to investigate the cows
individually and cut out of the herd
all that are unprofitable and a burden
upon the business. Ex.
Removing the Calf. Many dairy
men take the calf from the cow imme
diately after birth, avoiding the
trouble there will be In separating
them if It Is not done until the calf
Iihs sucked several days. Those who
postpone the separation two or three
days do so because the cow is more
quiet and contented, an important mat
ter during her, feverish condition. It
is easy to teach the calf to drink in
either case, f Whole milk should , be
givenilor eight or ten days, and after
that some skimmilk , should be sub
stituted, diminishing the proportion of
whole milk each day until it finally
ceases to form any part of the ration.
The skimmilk must always be perfect
ly sweet and lukewarm, and only so
much given at each feeding as the calf
wfll entirely clean up. It will do quite
as well on this diet as If allowed to
suck. Ex. . ' . '
- ... Lice. ,
From Formers' Review: Any one
glancing over poultry literature,
whether in books or in papers, is apt
to think that "lice" Is a staple product
with poultry-raisers, or else it is the
old stand-by when items are scarce;
but the ones who have made a suc
cess with poultry know the bane
of poultry is lice, that lice is the rock
on which so many ventures in poultry
come to grief. The two kinds that
cause the most trouble are the large
gray body or head lice, and the little
red mites; the former live on the hen
or chick all the time, the mites sleep
In the houses and on the roosts in the
day time, and at night swarm over the
victims; the former kill the most little
chicks, but I think the latter are worse
on grown chicks. (
One must get rid of the large ones
by applying remedies directly on the
chicks, and hi the dust bath. Fresh
Insect powder, cedar tea, grease, are
all sure death to them; but grease
must be used sparingly on young
chicks. A drop of coal oil to the
spoonful of grease Is good to use. Coal
oil, cedar oil or tea, or fresh insect
powder may be sprinkM in the dust
ing place, with good results; or In dry
times flour of sulphur is beneficial.
There are many good powders to use,
all have proved effective with us, if
you can get fresh. For the mites,
cleanliness is the prime necessity.
Clean out all droppings, kerosene (coal
oil) the roosts so that every crevice Is
reached with the oil. Whitewash the
walls with good lime wash,and to
each three gallons add a half-pint of
carbolic acid or a pint of coal oil. This
Is more effective if made thin and put
on with a spray pump, but with care
one can put It on .with a broom or
brush. Do not be particular about
dropping lime on the floor; the more
the better for the hens, the worse for
(he lice.
If your house can. be closed tight
(which it should be), place a kettle or
pot of live coals In the house, throw
on sulphur or brimstone, run out and
close the house tight. Let burn until
4 or 6 o'clock," watching It enough to
see that It Is doing good work; then
open up all doors and windows, re
move the kettle, and if any mites or
lice remain after this siege (if well
done) they are tough customers. Re
peat this renovating every two weeks
until cold weather.
Pasteurized milk or cream ! that
