Chicago, III., April 24 A day or two
go the American Steel and Wire com
pany, a trust which has made its ex
actions felt most cruelly by farmers
who have to make much use of Its
product for fencing, issued a peremp
tory order closing down twelve of its
mills sitlated in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio
and Pennsylvania. At the headquarters
Of the Amalgamated Association of
Iron, Steel and Tin Workers In Pitts
burg, it was estimated that the lima tn
workingmen would aggregate about
1110,000 a week. The Chicago Times
Herald a staunch republican newspa
per, gathered reports from the mill
towns themselves, which indicate that
about 6.K0 men were thrown out of
employment and a loss of JiS.WO In
w&etes each week is Incurred. Colonel
John W. Lambert, one of the directing
officials of the trust, explained the shut
iown with the characteristic insolenci
ind brutality of the typical trust mag
nate, thus: "Our company Is running
its business without any need of ex
plaining. We shut down and open our
mills when we see fit."
No well regulated mind nor any con-
iclence not completely ossified by per
iistent pursuit of money-making to
!he exclusion of all other ideals, will
for a moment accept the theory that
1 business which employs nearly 7,000
men, a business upon the continuance
it which the livelihood of probably $5,
00 people is Immediately dependent, is
the sole concern of a few Individuals
who, by methods familiar to corpora-
ion managers, have seized upon its
control. The people as a whole have
lome rights in these premises. The na-
Uon cannot honestly remain silent and
lupine while the domination of a cor
poration over the lives and happiness
)f a great body of Industrious men and
heir dependents is thus wantonly and
irutally abused. In this specific case
lifferent explanations are given for the
shut-down. It Is said that it was caus
sd by overproduction, but that la a He
'or all through the went farmers and
mechanics have been stopped from sat
sfying their wants for the products of
his monopoly because its managers
lave repeatedly increased prices until
Jiey have reached almost tUe problbl
ory point. If there is any over-supply
f its product In the market. It Is be
:ause the prices put upon it are such
hat the ordinary consumer Is driven to
til sorts of expedients to avoid pur-
hasing. It is said by others that the
ru reason for the shut down was that
he ruling spirits in the trusts, one of
hom by the way. John W. Gates, is
republican aspirant for a lnlted
states senaiorship, have certain plans
'or manipulating the Mock market
hkh the shut down will further. This
possibly true, but it only lays em
phasis upon the folly and the criminal
ly of permitting the control of a great
nd necessary Industry in the I'nlted
states to pass into the hands of a
small body of men, men who would
aot have gained control of it If they
lad not possessed the Instinct of gam
olers and who naturally utilize their
jontrol to further their gambling trans
We have said that a business of this
ort is not a private business, and that
o individual can rightly make such
statement a Colonel Lambert Is
juoted as having made, and that the
eople as a whole must not sit quietly
y and allow his position to be main
tained without a protest. But In say-
ng this It Is not necessary to go to
the other extreme and hold that be-
ause the business has attained such
ualities of monopoly It should be con-
ucted by the government according to
the socialistic idea. The reason the
000 employes of the American Steel
and Wire company are suddenly and
arbitrarily thrown out of work Is be-
ause one single governing board con
trols the employment of all of them and
controls the Industry in which all are
engaged. If the twelve mills Involved
were operating as corporations should
operate, independently, one of two
might shut down, but the others would
continue. Indeed, it Is most unlikely
that any would shut down, because the
mill so doing would be In danger of los
ing Its trade to those which remained
In continuous operation. If, therefore,
the existing anti-trust law had been
enforced against this monopolistic cor
poration, not only would the farmers
not be compelled to pay extortionate
prices for their fencing, nor the me
chanics mulcted of extortionate sum
for wire nails and metal rods, but the
workingmen now out of employment
would still be lit enjoyment of their
wages, their families would be living In
comfort and the tradesmen dependent
upon their custom would not suffer. It
Is probable that Mr. John W. Gates,
the president of the present monopoly,
might be unable to lose a hundred
thousand dollars at poker, as he was
reported to have done a few weeks ago
at one of New York's gorgeous hotels,
but the country at large could strug
gle along even though Mr. Gates' sport
tin Inclinations might he restrained.

6A6E JUGGLES FIGURES.
One of His Own Officials Exposes
Washington, D. C (Special.) Secre
tary Gage was today convicted of jug
gling treasury figures on the war reve
nue receipts by one of his own officials.
This official corroborated the state
ments made In the press, and expressed
his amazement when the letter of the
secretary of the treasury to congress
on Apt II 2 was laid before him. In
which Mr. Gage fixes the war revenues
for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1S3,
at H5.724.510.94. '
"Those figures," said this official, "are
notoriously Inaccurate. A careful est!
nunc was maue 01 tne proposed war
taxes before the bill was introduced In
congress. We estimated the annual
revenue at about $100,000,000. We did
not miss it by ten million dollars.
"The war taxes for the fiscal year
1898, which ended June 30. 18S9. aeere-
gated $35,000,000. The books of the
treasury show it. How any other con
clusion can be reached is more than 1
The revenues derived under the war
tax alone will aggregate during the fis
cal year ending June 30 next between
ninety and one hundred million dol
lars. The figures of the denartment.
If they Include every item of taxation
Imposed by the act of June 13, lts.
will show that the secretary has either
been misinformed by his subordinates
or that congress has been denied the
accurate Information to -which It Is entitled.
In the tobacco schedule there Is
probably an annual Increase in buLlness
of 5 per cent. Everybody knows that
the tax on manufactured tobacco was
doubled by the war revenue act, and
that the increase of $16,2,000 in tax
for 1W3 means that at least $15,000,004
of that sdm was due to the war tax;
"The annual lax on beer, at tb old
rate, was about t"3.0K.00. The rate of
7i per cent under the old law wss In
creased to Vt per cent, so that the ad
ditional $30,004,000 collected on beeer
represents the war tax.
'Both these Items have apparently
been Ignored by the secretary in his let
ter, and both of them are due solely
to the war revenue act. r.'n matter
what other mistakes' may have been
made, there is no excuse for cutting ofT
$44,000,040 from these two Items alone."
The New York Journal's exjKisure of
the Jugglery created a sensation among
men who are searching for abwlut
facts upon which to base future legis
lation. It was said that If all .Secre
tary Case's communications to con
gress were as Inaccurate as this It
would be well to have. a congresslon ii
committee appointed to ascertain
whether or not the treasury department
can be depended upon to ci.rret lly
transmit to congress Information which
congress is entitled to receive.

There has been a good deal of talk
about changing the rules so as to re

two-thirds vote to nominate. The
making of rules rests with the national
committee, and It takes only a majority
vote of the convention to adopt them.
This is acknowledged to be one diffi

one-third of the delegates for thlr

ADVICE TO DEMOCRATIC CLUBS.
Bryan Advises Clubs To Celebrate
the Coming Fourth,
Washington, D. C, April 23. W. J.
Bryan, now In California, in replying
to an Invitation to attend a Jefferson
dinner In this city, has sent the fol
lowing letter to W. . McKean, secre
tary of the National Association of
Democratic Clubs, under date of April
"My Dear Plr I regret exceedingly
that engagements made bef re your In
vitation was received will prevent mv
attending the Jefferson dinner. It is
especially titling that in this centen
nial year of the party's first victor
e should commemorate the birthday of
the party's founder and patron saint.
"In 1SO0 the genius of Jefferson or
ganized the democratic party and led
a successful fight against the aristo
cratic Ideas of Hamilton. Today, when
democracy Is engaged in a life and
death struggle with plutocracy, we can
find Inspiration In the teachings of the
sage of Montlcello.
"The doctrine of equal rights to all
and special privileges to none, applied
to present problems, would restore an
equitable financial system, deprive na
tional banks of the power to Issue pa
per money, destroy private monopolies,
remove the menace of militarism am
imperialism, save the nation from en
tangling alliances, make It an example
to other nations, and Its flag an em
blem of peace. Justice, liberty and pro
'( hope that the National Associa
tion of Democratic Club will urge each
local organisation to celebrate the com.
ng Fourth of July.
"Those who assemble throughout th
country csn listen to the resdlng ot
the Declaration of Independence, heat
patriotic speeches and then learn by
wire that the nstlonsl convention of th
democratic party, meeting on that day

No mention has been made of New
