of the deceptions that plutocracy has

injunction permanent, but that will

In one of Upham Adams' articles de
scribing the three citizens of Llncoln

"Flannagan? What's Flannagan
' ," "Flannagan's the head brakeman on
"No. 81," explained Jenkins, noting
'the puzzled look on Judge Sawyer's
iace. "He was in here just before you
-came. Flannagan's an ungrateful dog
if there, is. one.. He showed, me his
'pay envelope. His wages have been
increased 10 per cent Last month he
;got $60, this month he gets ?66. Ev-

switchmen, and yardmen. Now what
do you suppose Flannagan said?"
"Never could guess in the world,'
returned Colonel Monroe. "What did
"He said he oughter been raised ten
years ago," declared Postmaster Jenk
ins, dropping the red hot poker on the
zinc. "I'd raise him if he was work

he'd been a long time in Ireland be-
fore he got $60 a month, say nothing

brought the railroad to time. I'd like
to be a railroad president, and see any
union1 bring me to time! I ten you,
unions are -ruining this country. Yes,

a pretty pass when men like Flanna-

It's treason and anarchy and socialism

'Flannagan is only a rough working-

man, witnout your aencaxe aenaium
tles, and hasn't had your educational
advantages. Then again tne loss oi
two or three fingers may tend to make
him irritable and to biaa his judgment
But you haven't told all the news
about the railroad. They have in
creased something besides wages.".
"You refer- to the new freight rate
schedule; I presume, observed Judge
Sawyer. "I heard of it yesteraay.
The M. N. & W. ha3 raised rreignt
rates an average of 10 per cent, re
sponded the colonel. "What do you
think of that, Jenkins? Perhaps that
accounts for Flannagan's good luck,
which he so little appreciates."
It's no money out of my pocket,'
returned Jenkins, doggedly. I. don t
ship any stuff. Besides 10 per cent
isn't much of as increase In rates, it
will hardly be felt Don't you tninK
Judge Sawyer was deep In the study
of the blue flames through the isin
glass and made no reply.
'Let's see how Llncolnville comes
out on these higher salaries and high
er freight rates," suggested Colonel
Monroe, reaching for a block of paper
and a pencil. "This is a division point
and more than the average number of
railroad men live here. There are
hundreds of towns in the state without
... . i ITT
a railroad employe as a resident, we
have forty of them. We'll average
their former wages at $75 a month, or
$900 a year. The forty of them have
therefore been receiving $36,000 a year.
The 10 per cent increase adds $3,600
to their incomes. This is the rail
road's contribution to Llncolnville.
Thi3 money will be spent on our
stores and some of it be deposited in
Judge Sawyer's bank. Flannagan gets
$72 of it. That will pay his rent for
six months. He Is one of the winners.
Now the question is, How does the
railroad come out? How much freight
business did the M. N. and W. do in
Llncolnville last year? Do you know
the approximate figure, judge?" Judge
Sawyer consulted a "notebook and at
ter a pause said: , :; .;..-!:;..:.
"The year's freight business of the
M. N. & W. in Lincolnville was about
$160,000, Colonel Monroe."
"Very well," continued the colonel,
jotting down the figures. "That is
the amount, Jenkins, that the town of
Lincolnville paid the M. N. and W.
for bringing to us our groceries,
meats, furniture, pianos, lumber and
the thousand and one things we pur
chase from our merchants or consume
as raw material in our factories. This
year the company is going to pay
Flannagan and, his fellow workers $3,
600 increase in wages and charge the
merchants and manufacturers of Lin
colnville $16,000 extra' for freight
bills. What have youto say to that?"
"It don't make any difference to
me," asserted Postmaster Jenkins. "I
only wish I was a stockholder in the
road. It's their property and they
have a right to charge anything they
please. The same people that are al
ways kicking about raiiroads and oth
er corporations would do the same
thing if they were railroads and cor
porations. I don't own nothing my
self, except a house with a mortgage
on it, but I stand up for property
rights and vested interests. They have
made the country what it Is. What
would Lincolnville be if it wasn't for
the M. N. and W. railroad? Nothing!
vnen the colonel points out that
the merchants will add that $16,000 to
the price of their goods .and Mr.
Jenkins' share of it will be about-$50,
the postmaster suddenly changes the
