"There is nothing new under the

ceive additional exemplification all
the while. In one pt the current
magazines Ferrero is telling hd"w he

our modern plutocrats who turned
back some of their wealth accumula
tions to charitable Institutions and

rartntly at work Just sfter the cur- bearing a good deal about how the

same outcry was beard from the un-! ness" bsron were usurping the fruits
fortunate victims of the existing so
cial order snd the same nostrums
and cure-alls proposed by ambitious
politicians and popular demagogues.
Still further corroborative evidence
that there is nothing new under the
sun is found In a quotation dug out
ot a speech made by Daniel abater
in HIS, which Is passing current,
sad which. If undsted, could easily
be ascribed to our own twentieth cen
tury. This Is whst Daniel Webster
said:
There are persons who constantly
clamor. They complain of oppression,
speculation and the nernlrloua Influence
of accumulated wealth. They cry out
loudly against all banks and corporations,
and all means ay which small capitals
become united In order to produce Impor
tant and benericlal results. They carry
on- mad hostility against all established
Institutions. They would choke the foun
tain of Industry and dry all tha streams.
In a couniry of unbounded liberty they
clamor against oppression. In a country
of perfect equality they would move
heaven and earth against privilege and
monopoly. In a country where property
la mere evenly divided than anywhere
else, they rend the air shouting agrarian
doctrines. In a country where tha wages
of labor are high beyond parallel, they
would teach the laborer that be la but sn
oppressed slave.
No one will doubt but that the con
dition of the common people In 1811
as compared with their condition to
day might justify complaint, and It Is
possible that, looking backward fifty
years from now, our present condi
tions may seem Inexcusably bad. But
nslther is there any doubt that all
clacses of our people are right now
enjoying more it wealth and happi
ness, and exercising greeter measure
of liberty, than any who have gone
before them. It is 'not to be ex
pected that men and women with am
bitions for better things will ever be
satisfied with their lot or cease to
strlvs for Improvement. It Is possW
ble thst the clamorous complaint of
oppression and Ill-treatment la
needed as a spur against lethargy and
inaction. The notion, however, that
the ills we suffer are peculiarly ours
and et Ibis era. and that the agitation
against thsm is a new manifestation
of patriotism and statesmanship, Is
contradicted every time J, we read

The overwhelming vote In favor of
strike by the engineer on fifty
rsllrosds east, of Chicago can but
have "a. disconcerting effect upon the
public mind. This may still not
mean that a striks I imminent, yet
It dee not exactly signify th op
posite. 8uch a preponderating vote
may have either effect on the
employers of tending to bring them
to concessions or, on the other band,
of deciding them more firmly not to
yield.
It has been long time sine this
country has found Itlslf-in the grip
of an engineers' stride, and such a
strike as this could be nothing short
of a public calamity. - In all proba
bility It would spread, but whether
it did or not. It would tie up traffic
and paralyse buslaea sll over th
country tor th Urn being and leave
Injurious consequence. Trains can
not very well operate without en
gines and,' avoiding .all big Ulk

fact that it thee engineer struck

In fact, no other kind of a strike

Co-operative Banking for Farmers.
David Lubln. .the California capi
talist,' who ia America's delegate to
the International Institute of Agri
culture at Rome, believe strongly In
the European co-operative banking
system for farmers In this country
aa well as abroad. He came from
Rome to apeak to the Southern Com
mercial congress st Nsahvtll on th
plan, setting it forth In very at
tractive form. !
In Mr. Labia's judgment the
farmer's principal grievance is tbst
outsiders control the marketing of
his products because he is unable to
borrow money sufficient to finance
him and enable him to hold his
products himself. Instead of letting
them go for what he can get for
j them snd turning over to "big bnsl -
j nets" the advantage of holding them
and thus cornering msrkeU or flx-
j tng price. " And th reason, h points
out, that the farmer is unable to get
the money Is that he lacks the proper
rating at the banks. Xow, under the I
"Raiffeison system," as he describes ;
it, in vogue for man years abroad.!
farmers for miles sround combine;
their resources, pool their Interests
and get a financial status and rating
on which they may borrow the J
money they need at reasonable rates j
of Interest. ;
How well the system might work!
In the United States is debatable, j
but this principle of It really does;
em commendable. We have beenj
I of tha farmer s labor. Whether
such a system would tend to release
the farmer from their grasp a trial
of It would soon demonstrate. Yet.
ss a whole, the lot and opportunity
of .the Americas fsrmer are far
ahead of those of thq European.
Misrepresenting- Japan.
A learned Japanese recently In a
public speech here In Omaha aald
that no man la his country is con
sidered well educated today who
does not know, American literature.
He himself bad spent some eight or
ten years in American Institutions
of learning. Msny other Japanese
sre pursuing their education in this
country as the superstructure to the
foundation laid In their own lan
guage and tbelr own land.' The fact
Is, Japanese are bent upon'education.
Lindsay Russell, president ot the
Japan society, said in an address at
the Japan society dinner to Ambas
sador Cblnda that Japan success
waa due to education, and recalled
sn Imperial oath laid down aa far
back as 1868 "Knowledge shall be
sought throughout the world."
Surely a nation so courageously
resisting the. tradition of a dark
past la entitled to sympathy and sup
port from nation like our own,
which atands with the beacon light
of learning and liberty held np to
th world. But a Mr. Russell says.
we are not Invariably giving this
sympathy and support to our sturdy
little neighbor. We are often prone
to misrepresent what she Is doing
and striving for. American lecturers
paint pictures of Japan and Jap
anese life and moral so glaring aa
to vok public denunciation by Jap
anese residing In the United State.
Undoubtedly traveloguers pandering
to the commercial side of their call
ing do frequently misrepresent the
facts about Japan, which la a very
bad thing to do. The great majority
of Americans cannot go to Japan and
learn for themselves th exact condi
tions, so tbey have to rely upon
book and traveler for their Infor
mation. Th utmost regard far-tee
exact truth ahould be the. ruling
passion In all . that la spokan or
written about this, as well a other
foreign countries.
A people bound by the rule thst
"knowledge shall bs sought through
out tbe world" is not likely to be
lost In dissolute living, and there are
so many tangible nroofa tending to
refute thle charge preferred against
Japan aa to lay on those making
the charge the burden of proof. For
the purpose or helping Jspsa to
higher moral or Intellectual stand
ard, It doe not quit appear that
th best way to do that Is to dwell
upon It shortcoming.
Social Senric for the Church.
The task the esrly church set itself
wag the saving of the Individual. Tbe
task the modern church faces Is the
salvation of th community. Rev
llglon today become a matter of so
cial service. The advanced apostle
of th varlou creeds and culta recog-'
nlxe that
The church face the task ot form
ing a fruitful articulation between
the promise of the gospel and th
need of th world. It la not an un
fair test to demand. A goepel tbst
ran sav men from aia ahould have
In It th power to rellev them from
oppression, from social oppression;
the power to help the widowed
mother striving or a livelihood for
herself and calldren; the power to
aid the little child, trying to cope
with the ad vera! tie ot want; tb
power to Btrengtheo. the arm of the
tether and husband wrestling with
heavy odds.
To' tske this power sad apply it te
the social Ills of a dlsessed and dying
world Is the great task ot tb church
todsy. To interpret the message ot
Christ to the world in twentieth cen

the tenement may feel the response
in, not only quickened hopes, but
tsngibl realities that show them In
better living conditions thst there is,
even for them la their present needs,
a responsive possibility in this goe
pel. The church cannot scold an er
ring world into righteousness and It
cannot wish a suffering humanity
Into ease and comfort It must
reach out through this gospel It is
preaching and help to make people
righteous and comfortable, and this
is social service. Th community is
