The May Forum contains an article
entitled. "Menacing Socialism in the
Western States," written by Mr. Frank
Basil Tracy, who, we are told, was born
In Iowa, graduated at the State Univer
sity in 1888 and has since been a writer
on several western papers among them
a leading dally.
Mr. Tracy has been thoroughly
frightened by the upheaval of the west
and being on the ground has had a
tolerably near view of the field. His
opinions are not at ah reassuring to the
old school politicians, but any populist
who will obtain a copy of the forum
containing the article, will buckle on
his armor anew und pursue the fleeing
foe more vigorously than ever, feeling
that the great forces of nature are
fighting for him and that success is not
Mr. Tracy is a confirmed plutocrat of
the republican persuasion, and he takes
this sepulchral view of the situation:
"He would be indeed a blind observer
and a most superficial student who liv
ing in the west, coma not see in me
rise of the populist party and in the
wide-spread prevalence, in the western
states, of the heresies of that party,
serious conditions of public thought
and popular tendencies essentially in
imical to the stability of our present
form of goversment. If thee heresies
were confined to tne populist party, tney
would cause no necessary apprehension.
but the plain, bald truth is that this
people's party Is only an aggravated
symptom, a surface manifestation of a
disease which has fastened itself firmly
upon the mental constitutions oi tne
pdople of the great west."
George the Third could scarcely have
chosen fitter language to express his
fears and those of his courtiers one hun
dred and twenty-five years ago, regard
ing the colonies that later formed the
revolutionary confederacy, and finally
blossomed into our sisterhood of states.
Jefferson Davis, Alexsnder H. Steph
ens and Robert E. Lee might have used
similar language regarding the north
and northwest In 1856.
CBut the hysterical sobs f frightened
monarchs or antiquated politicians have
failed to check the onward step of civil
ization, and the wild dreams of the
"fanatic" of yesterday are the accepted
philosophy of today. The wonderful
outpouring of the people and the un
affected enthusiasm of the crowd, both
delegates and spectators, in the Coli
seum, July 4th, at the Populist Nation
al Convention, struck terror to the
heart of. the youthful Tracy. When he
refers with alarm to the "thirty four
minutes" of incessant cheering at the
adoption of the platform, he forgets
that similar wild scenes occurred in the
Minneapolis and Chicago conventions,
with this trifling difference in Omaha,
the cheers were for principles, while in
the other cases the cheers were given
at the mention of the names of men
who were the representatives of certain
organized banditti striving for the
ascendency, with no higher motive
actuating their frenzied demonstrations
than the desire for official place and the
It is admitted that "property and per'
sons are entirely safe, that the west is
peaceful: it is to a degree happy, and
on the surface contented," but the
specter of socialism is ever disturbing
the cogitations of our economic tyro,
He refers to the "socialists" as of three
2. Not populists, but favor govern
ment ownert hip of railways and control
3. "raternallsts" in all political par
ties, and these are (horrible to relate)
"Intelligent, educated and prominent
in business, society and the church,"
and those three classes constitute in
the "deliberate judgment of the writer
a majority of the citizens of the west."
We are told that in Omaha, a typical
wskra city, are two thousand populists
and many more "socialists" and pater
nalist." that debating cluU presume to
discuss ths great underlying principle
of human liberty and decide In favor of

Uvely socialistic proposition: that
many clUes in the west own their own
water works, gas and electric light
plant, and are taking steps to acquire
control of the street railways.
The abeve is very encouraging to us,
for it conveys the intelligence that
large numbers of the people are think
ing, a sure precursor of progress. Mar
tin Luther thought deeply and endeav
ored to reform the church before he
decided to start a new one. John Knox
and Charles Wesley are other familiar
names, and these men passed through
the same experience. For long years
from Thompson and Garrison to Lincoln
and Summer the conscience of the peo
ple, in and out of the church, was
educating to recognize human liberty
above property right1. Any csllege Is
to be congratulated that Mr. Tracy has
not control of its curriculum, for then
would the study of lllcardo be substi
tuted for the works of Spencer, and
lyceums would be subjected to an es
pionage that would do credit to the
Czar of all the Russlas, in his effort to
crush out the hertsies that prevail in
those theaters of debate and investiga
tion. I suppose the debates in . the
English Parliament tbat preceded the
adoption of the Magna Charta were
considered by King John as rankest
treason, for we are informed that It was
only at the point of spear and lance
that he finally accepted the terms of
that Immortal document that assured
freedom of thought and constitutional
liberty to ths English speaking people.
The deepest thought, the most profound
research and persistent investigation
has always preceded every great ad
vance in social and political science.
It is not to be supposed that the
United States possessed itself and as
sumed the management of the postal
business of the country without a strug
gle with the express companies that
were charging twenty-five cents for the
delivery of a letter, It is altogether
possible that this great advance was
accomplished In spite of the lugubrious
groans of caviling political leaders
acting as paid attorneys of the express
companies and protesting with men
dacious, perjured' cant against the "un
constitutionality" of the proceeding.
In the midst of some incoherent rav
ings about "paternalism," grange stores
and "socialistic movement in the seven
ties," our neopbite has lucid a moment,
and thus clearly states the situation:
"The members of the second and
third classes of socialists are oot as yet
insistent or demonstrative. With them
it is more a hope am a belief than a
demand. Aud while many of these
men would demur if classed with the
populists, the difference between them
is simply in degree and not in kind.
This is the central fact which sheds a
great light on the rise of the populists,
who knew and know that joined to
them In sympathy if not In name are
thousands of their brother citizens.
And it Is this feeling which lay behind
and was the impelling force of the
Omaha convention, 'these populists
appreciate the fact tbat they are a few
steps In advance of the others, tbat
they differ only in being more logical,
and they believe that in a very short
time these others will cross the narrow
boundary lines1 and become of their
party and name. It is the thorough
and lull understanding of this condition
and these facts which furnishes to the
student his gravest apprehensions of
the fuure when the adherents of this
socialism, with which the west Is honey
combed, shall have become united, logl
cal and therefore aggressive."
It would be difficult to pen a more
complete and comprehensive view of
the situation, but if a populist had
written it, he would have been scorned
as an egotist and derided even by his
political friends for his assurance and
Tyrants always had their "gravest
apprehensions" aroused when their sub
jects began to think. 'Twas true of the
Pope when priests began to investigate.
'Twas true of Charles the First when
his retainers became thoughtful and
'logical" i In their thinking. 'Twsg
true of Louis XVI of France when he
found the thoughts of his subjects
directed by such "logical" minds as
Lafayette, Rosseau, Auguste Cornpte,
Voltaire and Thomas Paine. The
cltldal of human slavery trembled when
the thoughts of men became "united,
logical and therefore aggressive" under
the leadership of Wendell Phillips. And
the fawning flatterers that pay court at
the fact of party leaders whs prove to
be only agents of Ikrlbaum, Heldel
bach and Rothohlld, may well have
their "gravest apprehensions" aroused
since the world especially tne more
unfettered west ha begun to think
under the leadership of Kdward Bel
lamy, Hamlin Garland and Ignatius

Nothing ran so clearly illustrate
ths part played by the government
In propagating the seeds of socialism as
the free silver lunacy in the west. No
stranger can comprehend its extent.
Every populist, nine-tenths of the demo
crats and one-half of the republicans
are devoted to this heresy. The only
difference between the fire silver popu
lists and tne hoatst free silver men of
the other parties, is that the latter are
deficient In logic, for they are really
and finally believers in fiat money."
Webster defines "logic" as "the sci
ence of classification, judgment, reason
ing and systematic arrangement." Ac
cordingly when thinkers upon the sub
ject became "logical" In their thoughts
and scientific in the arrangement of
their Ideas, they at ones become popu
late, having graduated from the fresh
man class heretofore occupied, for it is
only the thinker that refuses to aceept
the dogmas of Ikelheimer, Heidelbach
and Atkinson, and enters the fresh
man class on economic studies.
But what is to check this landslide
that threatens to overwhelm the west
and whose "logical" result will be the
engrafting of "socialistic" thought up
on the coming generations in all sec
tions of the country? Here is the
remedy in Mr. Tracy's own language.
"Dut and more systematic education
by the public schools and by the news
papers must be Inaugurated. The cardi
nal defect In our public schools lies In
the fact that they do not teach directly
the evils of such heresies, nor ao tney
give any basis upon which the , pupil
may build logical and wise views of
government aud economics. There
ought to be teachers in every school
who should be obliged to instill into
their pupils right principles of govern
ment and life. Such tuitions is of
more inherent value than all the other
studies in the curriculum. We need
more honest and penny-despising pub
lic journals, newspapers with broad
vision and Intelligent, independent
views. W need a revival of the mov
ing editorials which shall convince men
rid thorn of their heresies ana elevate
public thought. We need careful and
udlclous laws. The nice distinction
between government supervision and
government control must be made. The
government ana state legislatures must
strike down the powers of trusts, mo
nopolies and "combine" by wlssand
ust limitations. The I'acino roads
must be made to loose their grip on the
stolen millions, and render an account
ing to the government. The munici
palities should break the merciless
grasp which telephone, gas, electric
llirht and other monopolies contrive to
secure on city councils, and compel a
reduction in tne exorbitant rates Dy
which the owners grow to quick opu-
ence, and by which a grlevlous burden
Is laid upon the public The greed of
these municipal and state corporations
Is the direct and immediate antecedent
of this socialistic agitation and much of
this agitation would be temporarily
allaved if this local cause were removed.
The people wouia inon reel in a spirit
to listen to the dictates of reason and
Much of the above taken in the ab
stract, or unconnected with the rest of
the article would receive the ready
assent of most fair-minded people, but
taken in its connection, what does It
mean? It means that the schools should
have their courses of study supervised
in the interests of those opposed to
government ownership of railways and

tic trend to the thought of the youth,

as a guide they might unit into sucn
heresies" as municipal ownersnip oi
natural monopolies. Tt . revision of
text books has already proceeded so far
that in the reading books, among the
few selections chosen from the bible, Is
found the parable of ten talents where
in occur the words, "Thou oughtest
therefore to have put my money to the
exchangers and then at my coming
should have received mine own with
usury." And now to complete this
prostitution of Holy Writ to the base,
mercenarv Dur noses of the horde whom
Christ soourged from the Temple with
a whip of cords, the christian churches,
muzzled by this same Moloch that sent
Ernest Seyd te America witn a nail

congress to demonetize silver, tne
christian churches, through their re
presentatives, lately presented the bible

well knowing when they did It tbat no
such word as our word 'interest" exist
ed at that time and that the tubstltu

Now, when the school books are again
revised to suit the "revised bible" the
youth of Dth christian and freethinker
will oe taugni amoug tneir earnest
lessons, "Thou oughtest therefore to
have Dutmv mnef to the exchangers
and then at my coral sir 1 should have

is a minimum of corruption and a maxi

are familiar Instances of men whose
clarion voice rang out for the people as
against the corporate powers, but a
change came over them and instead of
the trumpet tones of freedom, their
voices became as soft as the cooing of

them as the price of retaining an offi
