Dialogue Between Laborer and X'api
talist. Laborer When the powers that be at Wash
ington destroyed the producer's money and
'.substituted the bank note, they virtually
iota the rock of our national resources, and
Abundance of revenue burst forth.
Oapitalist Graod, statesmanship indeed!
Laborer But wait until I analyze this sen
tenet. The rock of our national resources is
the producer; is it not? Well, when a high
"wayman waylays a pioducer, smites him and
rips open his pockets, the same grand result
follows, does it not?
Capitalist Rather a forcible illustration.
Laborer Yes, but it is not a forcible case.
Capitalist Well, what are you going to do
Laborer In the first place the basis that
was adopted for a medium of exchange fn
the days of sickle, hoe and hand-loom pro
duction, and mule and camel transportation,
we are going to consign to the museum of
aincient relics, and substitute for it one found
ed on tho source of all wealth, land; and our
se$t of government will then be removed
from Wall street, and be established at Wash
ington. Capitalist You had better attend strictly to
your business, .study and practice economy,
.and let politics alone.
LaborerThat is practically what we have
been doing for the last twenty years, and if
we continue it twenty years longer we will
be obliged to emigrate to Ireland or Pussia.
liy Edward Hellanj nthe Nationalistfor Dec.
It is an indication of ripeness of the
" times for the National plan of Industry
that the predominating economic facts
4iiil tendences of the epoch so lend
themselves to its arms as to leave no
i question as to the practical policy of
the movement, in order to realize in
due time the Nationalist idea it is only
necessary to take judicious advantage of
the contemporary tendency toward the
consolidation of capital and the con
centration of business control. The
""Ship of State" is already being borne
onward by a current which it is only
needful to utilize in order to reach the
desired haven. The piogressive nation
alization and municipalization of indus
tries by substituting public control for
the publie advantage, in place f al
ready highly centralized forms of cor
. porate control for corporate advantage,
it at once the logical and inevitable
policy of Nationalism.
In looking forward, however, to the
future of the movement, and forecast
ing the work it may be able to accom
plish, it is impossible not to recognize
that More after all depends upon its spirit
than its method. Its method scarcely
may be other than the one indicated,
.and this is so obviously the natural, and
not an arbitrary method, as to give the
best of ground for confidence th at is the
right one. But an excellent method
may be defeated by a bad spirit, while
on the other hand, if the spirit be good
and true, mistakes of method may be
remedied, and will not prevent ultimate
. triumph. In ottering some suggestions
us to the spirit which should animate
the Nationalist movement I do but de
scribe what seems to me the character
istics of its present spirit and of the
men and women engaged in it.
The first of these characteristics is
The sentiment of human brotherhood
which is the animating principle of Na
tionalism is a relegion in itself, and to
ainderstand it in its f ull significance im
plies a sense of consecration on the
part of those who devote "them
selves to it. Nationalism, is indeed,
.also upon the soundest economic laws;
the principle of fraternal co-operation
is as certainly the onJy true science of
wealth-production, as it is the only
moral basis for society; but the latter is
so much more the important considera
tion that even if a brotherly relation
with our fellow men could only be at
tained by the sacrifice of wealth, not
the less" would the true Nationalist
seek it. The ultimate triumph of
JSationalism demands as its first condi
tion that it be kept upon the high mor
iil ground it now occupies, and retain as
its chief motive that pure and uncom
promising enthusiasm of humanity
which now animates it.
The second of the characteristics es
sential to the spirit of Nationalism, if
it is to succeed speedily, is a tolerant
and charitable attitude toward the criti
cal and the indifferent toward our op
ponents. on this point as there seems to be, cur
iously enough, something in the advo
cacy of reforms which tends to develop
5in intolerant and uncharitable spirit to
ward those who are not yet believers.
And yet what could be more exquisitely
.absurd in itself than that spirit, on the
part of a reformer, or more calculated
to defeat his own supposed end. Lf it
be true, as the tone of some reformers
toward the rest of the world seems to
indicate, that they are hopelessly better
than the general mass of men, what ex
pectation can they have of the success
of their reform, since it can only suc
ceed by converting these bad people'?
Until we call a man names, there is
il ways a chance that we may ccivert
Jiim, but afterwards, none at all. And
jiot only that, but we are not helping
our case with the by-standers. It would
-seem plain that only reformers who
have all the converts they need can af
ford to call their opponents names.
There is especially one form of denun
ciation which Nationalists have thus
far left to, other sorts of social reform
ers, and it is hoped we may continue to.
This is the denunciation of the wealthy
in the supposed interests of the poor.
Nothing could be more unjust and sense
. less. The rich could not, however dis
posed, abolish or greatly lessen the pov
erty so long as tne present industrial
system remains. It is the system that
is to be attacked and not individuals
whose condition, whether of riches or
of poverty, merely illlustrates its results.
Of course, there are many rich men
who have become so by vicious methods
and these merit personal condemnation,
but there are probably more to whose en
terprise and leadership the community
owes much of the little wealth and com
fort it has. It is a very barbarous and
wasteful sort of leadership, to be sure,
and one for which we hope to substi
tute a mode of organizing industry infi
nitely more humane and efficient. But
meanwhile let us not fall into the mis
take of those who rant against capital
ists in general, as if, pending the intro
duction of a better system, they we're
not, no doubt selfishly, but yet in fact
performing a necessary function to
keep the present system going.
It is the distinguishing quality of
Nationalism and one on which its near
success largely depends that it places
the whole subject of industrial and so
cial reform upon a broad National basis,
viewing it not from the position or with
the prejudices of any one group of men,
but from the ground of a common citi
zenship, humanity and morality. Na
tionalism is not a class movement; it is
a citizens' movement. It represents
peculiarly neither men nor women,
North nor South, black nor white, poor
nor rich, educated nor ignorant, -employers
nor employed, but all equally;
holding that all of us alike,whatever our
label may be, are victims in body, mind
or soul, in one way or another, of the
present barbarious industrial and social
arrangements, and that we are equally
interestedjf not for cur physical,yet for
our moral advantage; if not for our
selves, then for our children, in break
ing the meshes which entangle us and
struggling upward to a higher, nobler,
happier plane of existence.
The third of the characteristics essen
tial to the spirit of Nationalism is pa
triotism. There are social reformers who be
lieve, the less one's devotion to his own
country and countrymen, the better he
will love other countries and humanity
at large, as if a man were usually found
to be a better neighbor in proportion
as he neglects his own family. This is
a Debet which .Nationalists utterly re
pudiate. The very word Nationalism
is an appeal to love of country. Patri
otism, though so often misdirected, is
the grandest and most potent form un
der which the enthusiasm ot humanity
has yet shown itself capable of moving
great masses, and in its spirit contained
the promise and -potency of the world
embracing love in which it will some
day merge. Social reforms must follow
National lines and will succed as they
are able to adapt themselves to National
conditions and sentiments and identify
themselves with National traditions
and aspriations. We, as Americans do
not, I am sure, love mankind any the
less for the aspiration we cherish that,
in the presence of the world-wide move
ment for a better social order, America
may maintain and justify that leader
ship of the nations which she assumed
a century ago.
The fourth characteristic of the Na
tionalist which it must retain as a con
dition of success is its present spirit
of conservatism as to methods, combin
ed with uncompromising fidelity to
Evolution, not revolution, orderly
and progressive development, not preci
pitate and hazardous experiment, is our
true policy. The intoxication of a
mighty hope shoull not tempt us to
forget that,, the success of the great re
form to which we have set our hands
depends not so much upon winning the
applause of our fellow-enthusiasts, wel
come as this may be, as upon gaining
and keeping the confidence of the law
abiding masses of the American people.
To this end we have need to be careful
that no party or policy of disorder or
riot finds any countenance from us.
It is my. own belief that on account of
its peculiar adaptation to the present
economic and social states and tenden
cies Nationalism is destined to move
rapidly, but is for this very reason that
prudence and conservatism are called
for on the part of those ldmtihed with
it. Our mistakes alone can hinder our
cause. Edward Bellamy.
Educate and Agitate.
The Farmers' Alliance and Knights
of Labor have joined hands and will
push on the reform movement together.
If they mean what they say somebody
had better stand from under. The
great trouble with the working classes
is that they won't vote as they talk. If
they ever get enough sand in their
craws to vote for their interests, the
days of such men as Allison and Coal
Oil Payne are numbered. However,
let the good work go on. Push for
ward the the organizations. Educate
Corn for Fuel.
The Rawlins county farmer refuses to
sell his corn because he can get only
eight cents a bushel for it. Ha tmrns it
in preference because coal is worth
thirty cents a bushel. He also lives in
a sod house because lumber is worth
$33 a thousand. A little over a year
ago the Rawlins county farmer whooped
up a big majority for high protective
tariff, which puts a tax on coal and
lumber, and lets corn take care of it
self. Result: Coal 30 cents, lumber $35,
corn 8 ceuts.

Wants to Encourage Them.
Washington, Jan. 4. At the reopening of
the eeseion on Monday next Senator Frye
will introduce a bill authorizing and direct
ing the postmaster-general as soon as
practicable to forward all ocean malls by
American steamships and to make con
tracts with them'for not less than five nor
more than ten years. It Is required that
the ships with which contracts are made
for trans-Atlantic service shall have a
capacity of 5,000 tons and a speed of not
less than eighteen knots an hour, ana that
those for the trans-Pacific and South
American trade a tonnage of not less than
twenty-live hundred tons and a speed of
not less than fourteen knots, that they
shall be paid not more than $10 and not
less than 85 per mile for the distance
traveled on their voyage outward. An
other condition is that the vessels, like
those of the naval reserve of England and
France, shall fee constructed upon models
approved by the eecretary of the navy and
be suitable for the use of the government
as cruletrs or transports in time of war.
The secretary of the navy is also author
ized to detail efficers from the naval list of
tne United Ssates for the command of
tnese vessels whenever it shall be desired
by the owners thereof and to grt.nt such
officers leave of absence for a term of
yearn on half or one-third, pay without af
reeling their standing in the service or im
pairing their prospects for promotion.
Fur the purpose of educating seamen each
of these shall carry three or four petty offi
cers or cadets, young men like those in the
royal mail service of England, who shall be
apprenticed for a certain term of years and
be given such duties to perform as shall
give them the opportunity to learn from
prajtical experience the science of sea
manship. Tne latter condition is thought
it be very important. The race of seamen
in the Unitad States is almost extinct. Our
young men can make so much better
wages on land and live so much more com
fortably that they will no longer consent to
go to eea as the skippers of New England
did twenty-five and thirty years ago. The
forecastles of our ships are now filled with
foreigners who are willing to work for
such low wages and put up with such bad
food that American boys will not nerve
with them. There are plenty o youag
fellows who would be glad to go to sea as
petty officers and learn how to navigate
vessels lf they could have the chance, and
10 afford them an opportunity and to edu
cate a new generation of practical sea
men, cms provision vill be inserted in the
Oil'. Tne provision permitting the detail
of naval officers to command the nhjps is
alao an important one. Competent ffi
oers tre very C4rc and have to be im
ported from Europe. At tae pane tiu e,

Am Immigration Evil ''
Washington, Jan. 6. A great deal of
interest is, being taken in the subject of
immigration by 1 gieiators from every eec
tion of the country. The committee ap
pointed by the last congress to make an
investigation of the subject reports that
the present laws were loosely constructed
and loosely enforced; that proper legisla
tion is comparatively necessary for the
good of tho government and the people at
large. At present a head tax of 50 cents
fir each immigrant who arrives in the
United States is levied. This collection is
made for th3 purpose of caring for the im
proper persons arriving in the United
States who must return to their homes.
The payment of this pittance seems to act
as a license for steamship owners and im
migrant agents, whereby they may send
every possible character to be found into
this country. It is proposed to abolish tbis
head tax and to plaoe the repponsibiilty of
classifying emigrants upon steamship com
panies. The steamship corporations will
be required to exercise a stipulated ecru
tiny in accepting emigrants to this coun
try, and wen their greed for revenue
grows in such a way that their judgment
and conscience are warped they will from
their own coffers have to stand the ex
it ense of returning ths emigrants to their
homes and the making f such reparation
as may be deemed necessary. The head
tax now levied is simply a license lor every
conceivable wrong in passing upon emi
grants to the United States.

Pktebbobo, Ont., Jan. 5. A terrible tale
of brutality was brought to light at the in
quest yesterday on the body of Mrs. Eliza
Holbrook, wife of Ja r es E. Holbnok, jus
tice of the peace and a wealthy farmer of
this county. Mrs. Holbrook, who is sev
enty years old and teeble, left her home.
about two miles from Haverlock, Decem
ber 24, to go to a neighbor's house, and on
Tnursday was found in the swamp about
three miles from home. The evidence
eiven at the inquest showed that Holbrook
kept his wife badly clothed and ill fed.
locking up the provisions from her, and
that he beat her shamefully. The verdict
censured Holbrook and when the body of
bis wife was turned over to him he refused
to burv ic, but finally consented to do so
when he learned tnat otherwise it would
ba turned over to a medical college. The
feeling asraint Holbrook is inrense and the
people are clamoring for his prosecution.
