WHO DID IT?
There is a good deal of discussion con
cerning the origin of the reforms that are
now sweeping the country and some
politicians, or their friends for them, are
claiming them as "my policies." The
truth about the matter is that these re
forms were first proposed and discussed
in the farm houses, in the lodges of the
Knights of Labor and in the labor
unions. That is as true in England as in
the United States. There John Burns
first forced them on the attention of the
British people and those who were in
power. They were riot adopted in any
nation intil the labor element got the
balance of power in Australiajjand New
Zealand, It was from Australia that we
got our secret ballot system. There are
men living in Omaha: today "who haye.
seep gangs of men go to their boss and
get tickets and then hold them above their
heads until they were deposited in the
box, so that the boss could know for a
certainty that the man voted as directed.
The regulation of railroads, and for
that matter all natural monopolies, was
advocated by the same class of people be
fore any man now prominently before
the public and claiming them as "my
policies" ever said a word on the subject.
There was an anti-monopoly party with
a ticket in the field in Nebraska thirty
years ago made up of farmers and labor
unionists. It was the arguments that
they submitted-upon which the present
anti-trust law is based.
More than that, some of the most ..ab
. ' struse . questions . in politcal economy
.questions that bad perplexed the
rightly solved and made popular by the
"learned" for a hundred years, were
same class of people. They understood
the "quantitative theory" of money, ad
vocated it in their platforms and flooded
the country with cheaply printed
pamplets, which were paid for but of
their poverty, and made it so thoroughly
understood that it would now be impossi
ble for any set of men by law to expaud
and contract the currency, for their-own
If anyone asks who made all these im
portant principles popular the correct
answer is: The common people did it.

Early to rise and early to bed was first
remarked by a bloke that's dead.
