A MOMENT OF REASON

t lie fanner is compelled to act in
his individual capacity the rail
ways always present, the sol it I

And that is why the utmost
caution must, be exercised in
formulating the state constitu
lion. Particularly must the sub-
ject of taxation receive the clos-
es! attention from not only the
delegates to the convention, but
from the people themselves.
II is a moral certainty that
under whatever taxation laws
t hat may be devised the farmer
will pay his full share.
And it must be made equally
certain that the railroads of thp
state have no loophole through
which they can escape bearing
their just portion of the taxat ion

Sometimes even a democrat may have a
sensible idea. William R. Hearst, in a
speech to a large audience at Syracuse last
Monday, said that he did not "advocate a
labor union parly nor uege class distinction,
but the abolishment of it." He further
emphatically stated that his program was not
socialism, radicalism or extremes of any
kind, but Americanism and the real Amer-
ican idea of government. There is no
doubt but thai if the fundamental idea of
American government was fully carried out
we would need no trust lighting laws, rigid
investigation of corporations or labor unions.
All men would be equal before the law,
whili: capital and labor would work hand in
hand for the advancement of tli«'ir common
interests. But this is just what the repub-
lican party has been trying to bring about.
