great eril In our Industrial system of
legislation is not repugnant to the or

Student of the problem bav long
maintained that tbe practice under
which society was compelled to bear
tbe burden of industrial accidents
was wrong. This fact was long ago
recognized abroad, and of late years
tbe United State bas presented the
sorry spectacle of being the only
really great nation In which loss in
this respect fell directly upon society,
In all of tha great industrial coun
tries ot Europe losses due to indus
trial mishaps are borne by tbe Indus
try. The principle I too well founded
to admit of dispute. Effort to
cure It recognition In the United
State bav met with opposition from
Interested sources. A law passed by
congress prescribing the liability of
common carrier and other employ
er engaged in other state business
was attacked in the courts and de
feated. A new act from which tbe
fatal defect was removed was also
attacked In court, and It la on tbe
validity of this later act tha court
ha now passed. It efficiency and
constitutionality I now established,
with the added advantage that "atate
courts may enforce that act where
local law are appropriate."
Tha movement for the enactment
by tbe United State oi' law Intended
to compensate worf men for loss due
to Industrial accident will receive
great Impetus from thl decision.

Hi address was the subject ot
extensive discussion upon that occa
sion by prominent men and wss pub
lished la full and treated at length
editorially In the New York Elec
trical Review, under date et Decem
ber IS. 1801. Tha title ot Mr. Roee
water's address was "Foetal Tele
graph In Europe," where bo bad
recently been studying this very
subject He believed then, as post
muter General Hitchcock cites now,
that If the leading European coun
tries could make suck suoooeee ot
the principle ot government owned
telegraph, the United 8tates should
be able to do so. Mr. Hitchcock be
lieves that the vast machinery of tha
Post office department should be
completely employed and be ba done
his part to bring abcut that end.
This machinery Is amply able to take
care of the telegraph as well ai
If 1,000 corporations, public serv
ice and others, with minimum cap
italization of $1,000,000 each, ac
tually combined their effort and re
sources to produce tbe maximum of
efficiency, what tremendous results,
socially as well as Industrially,
might be achieved. Such a plan I
projected, with James G. Cannon of
New Tork a a prime mover. Thl
gives a high ton to the personnel
of the movement at once. Tha plan
contemplates permanent existence,
not merely a temporary spasm ot re
form. It means, ot course, scientific
management, which involve cutting
off the waste, mutual peace and pros
perity of employer and employed and
fair treatment of the public.
Says Mr. Cannon: "We want re
sults, not only satisfactory to own
ers, but remit satisfactory a Well
to the working people, who, after all,
are the element upon which success
depends." Thl all aeem utterly

The principle of original treat or
ganization waa that It mad for
economy and eQciency, but the
corollary was found in the tremen
dous attendant power tor throttling
competition and creating monopoly
and It Is no longer denied that undue
exercise of this power cheated the
other resource. - Louis D. Brandei
find plenty of agreement to hi
proposition that monopolistic trusts
have failed of either economic or so
cial efficiency, and consequently men
like James G. Cannon, who appre
ciate the inevitable disaster of a con
stantly widening breach between
capital and labor, realize the im
portance of Just such movement
as this. It cannot reach practical
results too soon. Its substantial per
fection will help to solve moat ot tbe
acuta public problems of the day.
Where Lyncher Arc Unsafe.
Newark, county seat of Licking
county. Ohio. Is one place likely to
have few lynching. In July. 1110. a
bitter saloon fight culminated In the
lynching ot an Antl-8aloon league
crusader, who. It developed, shot bod
killed a saloon keeper in self-defense.
Tbe lynching occurred on one
of tha main streets ot tha town and
was so public that participants made
little or no effort at dlsguialng their
identity with it
In some places In tha country the
law would either hsvs winked at or
closed Its eyes entirely to this out
raging of It, but not so In Newark.
Justice set to work soon after the
lynchers hsd completed their job, and
Justice finished its task the other
day with the net reault ot thirty con
victions. One men was found guilty
of murder In tbe second degree snd
sent to tha state penitentiary for life.
Thirteen were ' convicted of man
slaughter, seven for rioting and nine
tor plain assault and battery and all
given tha limit of tha law provided
In each case
Those persons who have been dila
ting upon tha breakdown of law and
Christianity In Coatesvllle, Pa., and
other places where lynching ba gone
nnwhlpped of Justice, might find
her tha subject for rhapsodies upon
tha majesty and might ot tbe law and
religious Influence. The law Is no
weaker and no stronger In any com
munity than the public sentiment of
that community. The people who
wink at tha crime ot lynching gen
erally condone other form ot crime
and the people who are prompt to
punish lynchers Would be quick to
uphold tb law agslnst any other
form of violation. Yet It doe seem
to require a peculiar type ot moral
and elvle courage to make suck a
complete and Impartial cleanup of
lyncher as Newark ha made. It not
only lift Itself to a pinnacle ot loftier
respect, bnt rears aloft an example
tor every community In the country
to observe and keep before it. It Is
sn example that utterly disproves
that silly plea of the apologist for
law violation that lynching cannot be
effectually punished. ,
