The following resolutions ' were
adopted by the students of the Ne
braska Wesleyan university:
Whereas, The sentence has been pro
nounced upon Leon Czolgosz; tho as
sassin of our lamented national exe
cutive, William McKinley; and
Whereas, We believe that, the re
cusal to allow the assassin's remains
a resting placo upon American soil,
'would be as powerful a rebuke to an
archy as even his execution; therefore,
Resolved, That we, the students of
tho Nebraska Wesleyan university, in
chapel assembled, hereby indorse as
most appropriate the disposal of tho
assassin's body suggested by Chancel
lor Huntington' In his memorial ad
dress for the late president, namely:
"I crave for the assassin one mark of
distinction. He has earned it and I
, would it might be awarded him. His
bones should never- be allowed to min
gle with American soil. When the
death sontence shall be pronounced
and executed as it should be with tho
swift justice becoming such an un
speakable tragedy, I would wish that
the United States government would
. take the remains of the atrocious mur-
deror a hundred miles to sea, and then,
pinioned and manacled, with his re
volver in his belt and a millstona
chained about his neck, sink the corpse
a thousand fathoms to the bottom of
the ocean, that thus tho anarchist
might be warned that he shall not have
so much as a grave in a civilized land."
That Co-Operative Scheme
The Lincoln (Neb.) Post published
the folfowing contributed article:
Some time ago it was announced
through the press of the United States
that J. P. Morgan proposed to make
the United States Steel corporation a
co-operative corporation by setting
aside a certain amount of the capital
stock of tho corporation to distribute
to employes at "inside figures."

scheme of organization of tho United
States Steel (Steal) corporation, has
come to tho conclusion that basing
actual value on thtf actual cost of tho
various plants and equipments of tho
United States Steel corporation, Its ac
tual value is approximately one hun
dred million Instead of eleven hundred
million as it is capitalized. Tho writer
has also learned through sources
which .he believes to be accurate, that
tho preferred stock is, to all Intents
and purposes, a first mortgage on the
various plants of the United States
Steel corporation. This state of af-.
fairs in a time of industrial depression
which is sure to follow the inflation of
the past, three years, would leave tho
holder of common stock with, a piece
of worthless paper whero ho .had paid
perhaps 40 .cents on the dollar for it,
"insido figures." If I were an employe
of the United States Steel (steal) cor
poration and were asked to co-operate
by investing my surplus earnings in
stock of the corporation, I should look
very carefully into tho matter before
I invested to see that my hard earned
money did not eventually co-operate
into the pockets of J. P. Morgan & Co.
The writer, one of the seventy-fivo mil
lions, one of tho common people, would
suggest a plan of co-operation for J.
P. Morgan, which he believes is in
marked contrast to the Morgan scheme
but which he' believes is founded on
principles of right, equity and justice.
Lot J. P. Morgan & Co. first squeeze
the water out of the stock of the
United States Steel (steal) corporation
and then let him address tho thousands
of intelligent American workmen in
the plants of the corporation, and say:
"Men, we have acquired plants to the
value of so much (probably about one
hundred million dollars) and we are
wiling to form a co-operative corpora-,
tion on the following basis. We will
furnish tho capital and you furnish
the brains and brawn, and we will pay
you at the regular scale of wages ac
cording to your ability. We will then
figure our capital invested at the legal
rate, G per cent per annum, and what
ever profits there are over the 6 per
cent shall bo distributed to the labor
and capital pro rata, at the end of the
year. If we find that our profits are so
large that we are unnecessarily tax
ing the consumer of dur goods, we will
reduce the price till there will be only
a legitimate and equitable profit, and
cheapen the cost to the toiling millions
who use our goods."
What do you think, kind reader,
would be the effect of such a co-operation
faithfully carried out? Would it
not send a chill like an Arctic breeze
along tho spine of tho light-fingered
gentry on Wall street who live by the
sweat of other people's brows instead
of their own? Would it not fill with
warmth and happiness, like a summer
breeze, the breasts of the toiling
masses, and would they not go forth to
their toil with light hearts, and say
to themselves and to their fellows,
"This is indeed the beginning of the
dawn of the perfect day, when tho
teaching of the Nazarene is beginning
to take effect in deeds instead of
words; when the 'Hon and lamb shall
lie down together?'"
