Not every eminent and renowned
character has become eminent and re
nowned for doing what no one else ever
did or being what no one else ever was;
though this is a distinction very com
monly credited; but it never came near
er being literally true than In the cass
of Mr. Gladstone. One of Napoleon
Bonaparte's admirers called hlw "a
man without a model and without a
shadow," but Mr. Gladstone bears die
palm in the select roll of famous soli
taires. Borne patient reckoner has com
piled a list of his "onlles," which may
or may not be exhaustive. Tie was the
only man who ever began so early s
public career which continued so late;
he was the only man who was ever
orator, statesman, theologian, author,
litterateur and linguist, and first-rate In
all; he was the only man who ever ear-
rated a great constructive measure of
legislation (the Irish Home Rule Bill
of "03) through the House of Commons
after he was eighty years old; he was
the only man holding and expressing
positive opinions for seventy years who
never made a personal enemy; and he
was the only man not holding a seat In
Parliament In honor of whom at hit
death the House of Commons ever ad
Journed. It has been truly said, "These
things are without a precedent but
there has been no precedent for Mr.
Gladstone himself." .
From his early years Mr. Gladstone
took the greatest possible care of his
beahh. He was temperate and ab
stemious; be observed all the accepted
hygienic rules, with some of his own
In addition, Including the celebrated
one of giving each mouthful of beef
steak thirty-two distinct and separate
chews; be took active physical exer
cise and he was careful not to over
work. He died at 80, and though be
suffered for months from a painful
and lingering disease that might have
been expected to pass by one of whole
some life and dean blood, bis case Is
pointed to as a triumph of scientific
methods. Prince Bismarck, on the
contrary, was not abstemious and was
regulated by no rules but those set by
his own appetite, which was not dain
ty. Unless all his biographers falsify
he ate enormously of the richest food
and drank freely of the strongest bev
erages. He Indulged In beer, but beer
was a mild tipple and did not suffice
for most occasions. When be made a
public speech he had a glass of
'schnapps," otherwise known as gin,
beside him, and ever since the news
papers have recorded his doing in de
tail schnapps and brandy .and cham
pagne have been the accompaniments
of the heavy meats and otb.-.r viands
that were served to him several times
a day. He had not been In public life
for some years, but his retirement was
not owing to mental or physical dlsa
ballty. He had some bodily disabili
ties, but had he still been chancellor
the probability Is that, until the last
few months, they would not have in
terfered with his official duties. He
died at 83, after setting all rules of
health at defiance from bis youth up.

Members of society In a new or
sparsely settled country are very near
ly on an equality. None are rich and
none are very poor. But as population
and wealth Increases, society gradually
divides into two parts. The ricln-r
class form one wing, and the poorer
the other. And ax rlvllization a dvan'-ne
the rich become richer and the poor be
come poorer. As labor produces all
the wealth, of course thU division of
society into the classes named results
from the unequal distribution of the
wealth produced. This unequal distri
bution results from the medium of ex
change. Exchanges of the products of
labor are indisputable. There could
be no growth of civilization without
But as there Is no great difference In
the amount produced of any kind, be
tween men who labor, there could
never be any very great difference In
the wealth of men, if every one re
ceived the exact equivalent for the
products of bis labor. But the middle
men, ttie men who buy from produc
ers, ami sell to consumers, increase in
wealth much faster than the ones who
produce the wealth.
A village springs up as a center
where exchanges are to be made. The
village soon becomes a big town, then
great city. Great mansions, tower-
ng churches and theaters, mammoth
stores, banks, residences, etc., spring
up on every side so tall as to shut out
the light of day, and the city lighted

Yet during all this process of build
Ing up, the city Is defaced by huts and
hovels, and the streets are full of rag

tramps, paupers and thieves, who are

The great church spires cast their

dangerous than those In heathen lands.
Those magnificent streets paved with
marble and lighted with electricity are
patroled by policemen In glittering uul
form, to protect society from thugs and
thieves. And as the present form of
elvllizatfon grows older, this division
of society between the rich and poor
becomes greater and greater. The gulf
between Dives and Iazarus becomes
wider, deeper and darker from day to
day and from year to year.
The great mass of mankind believe
this state of society Is unavoidable and
the highest possible. All the great em
pires and governments of earth have
traveled this road and come to ruin
Yet every succeeding one follows In the
wake of the preceding one and comes
at last to the same end. But the great
so-called statesmen seem to think that
governments are like animals or trees;
they have their youth, middle age, old
age, thou die.
Our form of civilization has In It the
seelsor death. It produces in every
form of government the same eondi
tions. It concentrates the wealth Into
the hands of a smalL Idle class, con
verting ibem Into heartless misan
thropes, and reduces the other wing of
society Into such depths of poverty that
all manhood Is crushed out of them
Then the government dies of Its own

this delay and death of governments,

This Is for society to

The lower the state of intelligence
and morality, the more rigid must the
laws and government be; the higher
the plane of morality and Intelligence,
the less need of government The Bible
says, "The law (or government! Is made
for the lawless and disobedient, for
murderers," etc. Good men don't ned
much Law.
We will lay down a few self-evident
facts, or propositions.
1. Each and every person born Into
this world has the same rights iu It as
any other ever born Into it
2. Kaco one has the same right to
the fruit or result of bis labor as any
3. Kncb oue has the same right to
the free use of the free gifts of God,
his creator, as any other.
4. No mau or combination of men
have any right to deprive any other of
his God-given rights.
Hence no government can Justly de
prive any citizen of his natural rights.
A man may by the commission of i
crime against society forfeit his rights,
otherwise he cannot be Justly deprived
of them. The great mistake of most
writers on political economy has lcen,
In trying to construct a system Inde
pendent of the moral economy or gov
ernment of God. They assume that
there Is no connection between politics
nd religion. Most pollliciaus believe
this. While they admit that man Indi
vidually la responsible for his arts, they
do not believe that corporations, socie
ties and governments are. They as
sume that civil government, out and
out Is a mere partnership affair. That
society by agreement forms govern
ment and of course by agreement can
unmake the same. This was the doc
trine of secession.
It produced bad fruit If a state could
secede, why not a county, township or
Individual. In essence It Is anarchy.
While the people composing any socie
ty have a right to thcldc what form of
government they will have, they do
not decide whether they will dispense
with all government This they cannot
do. God has so constituted the race
i" .at government by law Is a necessity.
No government Is anarchy. Anarchy
would be destruction to the race.
Civil government being ordained for
the government of society collectively,
the moral for the Individual, hence It
follows that they must harmonize.
The moral being superior, the civil
must not conflict with It The moral Is
the law between umn and his God.
The civil between man and his fellow-
man. They are wheels within wheels.
No correct system of, political economy
can be constructed that Ignore tha
moral. It Is the greatest factor In the
problem. "If Iniquity be framed Into
law" there will be friction. Jarring and
ultimate ruin, as there would be in
machinery where cog-wheels fall to fit
into each other. Isu tells us that "the
nation or kingdom that will not obey
God shall be utterly wasted," and the
wrecks that lie all along the stream of
time prove it true. Why have the
great cities of our world perished?
Great cities are monuments of robbery.
Under a system of unjust exchanges,
the concentration of wealth is made
jMssible In' building cities that
are occupied, and- legally owned
by those who never gave to so
ciety an equivalent And as "men's
sins like their chickens come home to
roost," cities are a concentration of
vice, degradation, misery, poverty

seething mass of corruption, a bottom

One of the most widely known edu
cators, authors and historians In the
Bute, and a man who has on several
occasions held public office, has dug up
and sent to the Citizen the following
prophetic words contained In President
Abraham Lincoln's first annual mes
sage to Congress (Dec. 3, Wilt, which
make mighty interesting reading In
these days of perverted and fallacious
political economy, party bosslsm and
capitalistic tyranny:
It Is not needed nor fitting here that a
general argument should be made in favor
of populsr institutions, but there is one
point, with its connections not so hack
neyed as moat others, to which I ask a
brief attention. It is the effort to place
capital ou equal footing with, if not altove,
kbor in the structure of Oovernnient. it
is assumed that labor is available only to
cotiuection with capital; that nobody la
bors unless somebody else, owning capital,
somehow by the ue of K Induces him to

ered whether it k best that capital shall
hire laborers, and thus induce them to
work by their own consent, or buy tueni
sod drive them to it without their con
sent Having pro-eeled o far, it is nat
urally concluded that all laborers are
cither hired la borers or what we call
slaves, and, further, it is atuiutned that
whoever is once a hired laborer Is fixed in
that eondi t ion for life.
Now, there is no such relation between
capital and labor s assumed, nor i there
any sm-h thing aa a freeman being fixed
for life in the condition of a hired laborer.
Both these aaauDiptione are false, and all
Inferences from tbem are groundless.
Iilxir la prior to and independent of
capital. Capital ia only the fruit of labor
and could never have existed if labor bod
not first existed. Iilsir is the superior of
capital and deserves much the higher con
tidnration. Capital bss its r.guU, which
are as worthy of protection a any other
right, nor is it denied that there is and
probably alwaya will be a relation Im wen
labor and r&pnal producing mutual lien

that relation. No men living are

Thoughtful person, after reading
and rereading the Above, cannot help
but come to the conclusion that the
great commoner was able to get a pret
ty distinct view of the modern Hss
urmrrle. thotich It was la Its Inctpl-
eu. y in his day. The tool of produc
tion was In crude form, ihe liiechanle
was lmb-iiemlent and surrounded by
natural opisirtunltles. the unemployed
army was unknown, and the then pow
erful middle chiss was In Its zenith of
power and prosperity, and the stran
gling trust was not dreamed of.
Yet Lincoln, after analyzing the re
lation of btlsjr to capital and. bear In
mind, at a period when the capitalist
labored and the masses of workers
owned capital or received the Hon'
share of the product of their toil was
politician enough to attempt to bar
monlze what he saw were hostile ele
ments, although his strong sympathy
for the men of toil and his hatred of
oppression forced him to utter his fa
mous warning to labor about surrtu-
derlng its political power.
The Kepubliean party of Lincoln
day and the Republican party or iic-
Kinlev's d.iv are two distinct parries.
While forty years ago the party stood
for the freeing and ennobling of labor,
to-dny the party Is attempting to de
grade and enslave labor by spreading
the wrnlelous doctrine that capitalism
must be nrotected and subsidized
that it may In turn protect lalwr, thus
IkIi11v declaring that labor Is depend
ent upon the capitalist class, the falla
cy that Lincoln jilnted out.
