"If the People Rule Why Don't
They Get What They Want?"
vt; Ci"'w'7Tyw.BN n in -i
John Wineland, El Paso, Texas.
There aro Beveral reasons, all traced
back to corporation money directly
or Indirectly. As an Illustration the
owners of a largo corporation, as
sisted by tho higher officials, get to
gether and decide on what they
want and who they want to repre
sent them. It is then silently passed
down through potty officials of that
corporation until It reaches the em
ploy or voter. It is then passed
to tho trustees first who, through a
little personal adulation or favorB,
spread it like chaff from a sep
arator. Tt falls upon the just and
unjust alike, some being stronger
than others, shake it off; but others,
through fear of Jeopardizing their
position, remain silent and allow
that portion that has fallen upon
them to remain and follow along
rather than take any chanco of los
ing their position and depriving the
dear ones depending upon them for

that naturally follow in tho wako of
a lost position. Others aro not post
ed in tho matter and tho story pre
sented looks plausible and they drop
In lino and there arc still others
who gather up what has been shak
en and fallen from tho rest, in order
that they might receive an extra sup
ply of adulation and favors from tho
powers that bo. In tho meantime
proper influence has been brought
to bear upon tho owners of certain
newspapers and occasionally it be
comes necessary to acquire them
outright in order that tho voters that
are not ported may plainly seo by
reading thoso periodicals and edito
rials in those papers that they are
supporting the right man. Tho elec
tion is held, their man is elected by
a large majority and the people
think they really rule but they have
been deluded and deceived; he Is
then passed up from one corpora
tion to another until he reaches the
United States senate. An extraor
dinary session of congress Is called
for tho exprese purpose of an un
equivocal reduction of tho tariff
downward and other necessary legis
lation for the benefit of the masses,
and tho voters aro surprised and
even dumfounded when they learn
that their beloved representative is
always lined up on tho side of the
classes; if his constituents had a life
line around his neck in tho form of
a recall it no doubt would havo some
effect. Thoso are my reasons why
we are compelled to enjoy that un
pquivpcal reduction In the Payne-Aldrlch-Taft
tariff and other un
qu.lyocal legislation that has been

Your Opportunity to Secure a
Library of Political Information
Frank R. Starr, Dehesa, Cal. I
am a little late petting In my answer
to Senator Gore's question, so A. B.
Choato of Minneapolis, Minn., hrs
forestalled me, in tho only direct and
sensible, answer and it won't hurt
to repeat the gist of It: "Tt is said
of President Taft that he is an ami
able, good man, surrounded by men
who know just what they want. The
people, because they don't know just
what they want, are contending
among themselves about what they
ought to have and thus give public
officials an excuse for giving them
Wes Mayfield, Santa Rosa, Cal.
The people never have ruled. They
never will rule until we havo tho
initiative and referendum Any one
official or otherwise, opposing the in
itiative and referendum is opposed
to the people being in control of the
government. In my opinion, any
one who endorses Mr. Roosevelt, is
opposed to a government by, for and
of the people. What person of ordi
nary intelligence has said during the
past thirty or forty years at least,
that the people did rule?
T. S. Kirby, Chicago, 111. The
true answer to Senator Owen's ques
tion will be found In an article by
William Marion Rudy of the St.
Louis Mirror and published in The
Commoner of September 17, 1909.
That article, if republished at this
time, would be very Interesting to
Commoner readers, especially as it
gives a remedy "The Pamphlet"
which may bo available amongst the
many unions. More power to The
Commoner; it is doing great work
for the people.
It is figured out that a successful
nhvRip.ian must have a clientelle of
150 families, or about 750 persons.'
