So much is being said about the poor
noiueri of Pennsylvania who have been
u-ut on a strike for about four months
eciat we like to state a few tacts re-
yarding them. It Is not because of
poverty conditions that they are out,
lint because their prolitabie employ*
ncent led them to believe they could
co«*rce the companies into a recognition
«*f their organization and permit to
iticUte various rules of employment,
^•uch as not hiring any man who was
ttut a member of their union and other
~4£tti which give the union control of
ttie mines. If a man sr. couducts him-
afclf that the company does not longer
wttnt him, the matter must be submit-
ted to the uuion and they say whether
tiz not he will be discharged. Some of
Che company's mines were not union
seed, but men were employed who
worked solely upon their merits as
laborers. The union demanded that
these mines be placed under their con-
trol and every man discharged who
would not join the union. The com-
pany refused, which was one of the
principal causes of the strike. No
ioubt there is now some destitution
•after being so long idle. Hut inquiries
ku (iKXKKAL tariff revision.
Prewdenl Roosevelt Oppo«ed to Such
Since the declination of Speaker
Henderson to accept the nomination
of his party because he could not ap
prove its position as expressed by the
Republicans of his state, there has
been much discussion of the tariff
question as it relates to the trusts.
The position of the president was
sought for as it would effect legislation
in congress at the coming session. As
is usual with Theodore Roosevelt, the
public was not long left in the dark as
to where he stood. In oue of his
speeches, made on his western tour
he expressed in unquestioned terms his
opposition to tariff revision, believing
that through reciprocity we can se
cure all reductions necessary. He
does not believe that the tariff is In
any way responsible for the existence
Discussing the position of President
Roosevelt on the tariff question, the
Kausas City Journal says: President
Roosevelt, In his Cincinnati speech,
definitely declared that he is opposed
to tariff reduction as a remedy for
trust evils. There has been some
doubt regarding the president's posi
tion on this subject, and a definite
statement from him was awaited with
considerable interest. There was notli
iug new iu the arguments presented by
Mr. Roosevelt. lie points out that it
cannot be proved that the tarill is re
sponsible for trusts or monopolies, be
cause some of the most powerful con
solidatinne In tills country have t
tariff protection. He showed, als
that not the powerful and dangerous
institutions, but their weak and harm
less competitors, would be the lirst to
suffer from tariff changes. Probably
there is not a so-called "monopoly" in
America which has absolute control of
its Held. Even the steel trust, with a
larger capitalization than auy other
company or corporation in the world
has independent domestic competitors,
whose combined output equals that of
their great rival. It is plaiu that these
smaller companies and corporations
would be the first to suffer from for
eign competition, and that before the
gigantic trusts could be seriously af-
fected by the tariff change, they would
have become more nearly masters of
the home field than they are now, their
weaker rivals having been crushed out
of existence by foreign competition
Mr. Roosevelt does not, however, put
himself in an attitude of absolute op
position to all tariff changes. He does
not consider the present tariff law im
peccable, Jiut he vigorously objects
to an overhauling of the tariff along
free trade lines, because he believes
such action would unsettle business of
every kind, disturb the money market,
bring many manufactories to a stand-
still and produce a panic that would
spread desolation over the entire face
of the country. The president's speech
will be severely criticised by free trade
organs and orators, but Mr. Roosevelt
has never exhibited a great regard for
the wishes or opinions of free traders.
The anthracite coal fields where the
strike is on, has become a military
camp. Discouraged in not being vic-
torious and out of employment the
miners are becoming very obstinate.
Many oi the mines are being operated
by men who have taken their places
and it lias made them very restless.
Attacks on those who have gone to
work have become socommou that the
sheriffs could not protect those who
desired to labor and called on the Gov-
ernor for help. This means that the
end of the strike 1b lu sight and that
the companies will win. It is a serious
state of affairs when a man willing to
work can not do so, and must see his
— , — -- loved ones suffer for the necessaries of

The following article, which ap-

Paying for Dams - Territorial
Treasurer Rambo is preparing to pay
those who are eutitled to cash as a le-
ward lor building dams and making
artificial ponds on their farms. Every
farmer can have one or more ponds at
the public expense and the large i rea
of water held in these reservoirs will
help to temper the hot winds and esk
the dry spells of the heated season.

interested should u rite Treasurer

Some things are funny in politics.
Now that the Republicans of Oklaho-
ma have adopted free text books as an
issue the Populists claim that they
were the first to favor the measure.
Hut because the Republicans have
adopted the Populists, with their Dem
ocratic allies, are opposed to it Funny
isn't It, bow they see saw?
