SYSTEMS, AND MEN.
We get tir' d of hearing pe >pln
sr ■ that we can't make ; n hi>n
e^t living under ih • ''present
competivo system," ami charg-
ing up all the ravages of whis
key, graft and war to th * system
under which we live. No doubt
the present system could b im
proved upon—it is n >t perfect-
but iti improvement will never
come through the agitation of
of disgruntled propagandists
who have failed in th ;ir struggle
for tilthy lucre and are chirgin^
their failure to the "system " A
change of systems will not make
a chango of men. It is well to
hope always for something bet
ter; but it is silly to assume that
the milleniutn hangs in suspense
upon the ascension of some par
ticular clique or cult. The ab-
sorption of individual capital in
a collective capital will not usher
iu the millenium. The mere act
of change will not eleminate dis
honesty: the rascal in Harmon
county would be a scalawag in
Utopia. Government will be ao
solutely honest when men are
absolutely honest. In the mean
time let us work and pray.

partisan papers began their
