THE LARGER FIELO.
Young l!ulger in our village grew
to manhood and we thought him slick.
"He'll win renown before he's
through." we prophesied 'for he's a with V-se who know that his syni-
briek." He held positions here and pathles may be open upon every side
there und all employers said the and that he may seek to serve civlli-
same; he was n youth of genius rare
destined to rise to wealt'i and fame
He harvested yo great a yield of praise
hie head began to swell: "I'll have tc
seek a larger field." he said: "I see
that cry well. A man can't in a cil-
lage shine; his punk surroundings hold
him down; 'twere shame to hide such
gifts us mine beneath a bushel in this
town." So Bulger shook the village
grind. a::d to the city took his way. tneJ give their support to the third
and we old chaps who stayed behind t(rm candidate. The third term plat-
were sure that he'd put up much hay. lorlll pr0(Kse8 itB . solution of the
Tli" years rolled on; there came no
news of ictorles that IJulger won.
Must waif." we said "we'll bet our
shoes he'll make a noise before he's
done." We listened for such news in
vain and Ilulger t'other day came
back: a brakeman kicked him from
wages so they tell than he was paid
five yenrs before just when his head
began to swell. "The larger field"
uoor Bulger sight "still lures the vil-
tlage chumps elsewhere; they leave a
I land of meat and pies to live on husks
and shredded air." Walt Mason.
I Senator Owen has made thus far a
very effective campaign. He has
sicken a large part of the time in
Northern Oklahoma where he has had
large audiences who have listened
with great interest to his speeches.
The meetings addressed by Owen and
Murray in this part of the state which
under ordinary circumstances is
strongly republican have been much
more largely attended than any other
imlitical meetings held during the
campaign. Iloth Murray and Owen
have made speeches appealing strong-
ly to progressive republicans and a
greatly increased democratic vote is
confidently expected In the northern
Senator Oweu in his speech at Enid
rejoiced in the conversion of Theo-
dore Roosevelt to progressive democ-
racy. He described the incident at
Washington when as president. Col.
Roosevelt said his opinion of the
Oklahoma constitution would not look
! well in print and declared that since
then the third term candidate has em-
braced practically all of the political
principle embodied In the Oklahoma
cimstiiulion. lie said too that it is
well enough to rejoice over the re-
turn of the prodigal and while he did
not object to the killing of the fatted
calf in his honor he was not prepared
to approve the plan to make him the
head of the family. This is an apt
description of the situation but Col.
Roosevelt is running for president on
his record as well as his speeches at
Osawattomie Columbu and Chicago.
He would probably resent bitterly the
idea that he is a prodigal or that he
has been converted to any different
! view from that he maintained five
years ago. There is a question as to
whether the colonel has really been
converted or whether he always ad-
Justs his political principles accord-
ing to the emergencies of the hour.
In the November Woman's Home
Companion. Woodrow Wilson demo-
cratic candidate tor the presidency
writes an aiticle entitled "The New
Meaning of Government." Its central
idea is that those whom we send to
Washington tc govern us. ought to
"keep house" for the whole people.
The following is an extract:
I "Every dollar that the government
spends ought to be spent as carefully
as if the resources of the country
were limited. Every dollar of expen-
diture ought to mean something done
or provided for the people. Waste is
also weakness. Inefficiency brings
"It is part of the new meaning of
therefore that its re-
limited set of governing influences
but that those who exercise its au-
thority must 'keep house' for the
whole people; must use the money
raised bj taxes as if it were expended
in trust to produce the best possible
results in the ordering and stiinuhv
t'nn of our life.
"It is an Interesting circumstance
that government Is becoming iess and
let's R business to politician: thai
to ls ami energies of every k.ml are
turning towards it us pari of the gen-
eral enterprise of life. The reason we
want ir government n tie nee i rum
served only as few. Those who co
oils with masters of technical and vo-
cational education as well as with
financiers and lawyers and manufac-
turers ami merchants and those
whose interests have usually been at
the center of policy. Though he can-
not himself keep the life of the nation
as a whole in his mind lie can at least
make sure that be is taking counsel
zatiou and humanity not a pnrty or
any selfish program."
LABOR SHOULD BE WARNED.
While the third term party is mak-
illK Hli Btr()ll( appeal to labor and try-
j V(ttl. i
! are rea
ateh the half-baked socialist
re are some facts those who
f interested in the welfare of
ild carefully consider before
trust problem the establishment of
private monopoly under feleral con-
trol or regulation. This is the sug-
geBtion of Judge Geary the head of
the steel trust. It is a plan that finds
favor with the trust magnates gen-
erally. While there is inucJi in the platform
about social and industrial justice
there is not a line proposing to guar-
antee Vj labor the right to organize.
This is significant in view of the fact
that the third term campaign is fin-
anced principally by stockholders of
the steel trust he steel trust is an
Inveterate enemy of organized labor.
As long ago as l!)01 a partner of
George W. Perkins in the firm of J. P.
Morgan & Company offered a resolu-
tion which was adopted by the execu-
tive committee of the United States
Steel Corporation declaring: "That
we are unalterably opposed to any ex-
tension of union labor an dadvise sub-
sidiary companies to take firm posi
tion when these questions come up
and say that they are not going to
recognize it that is any extension of
union in mills where they do not now
There is practically no union in the
steel mills today. Where efforts to
extend the union have resulted in
strikes skilled American labor has
been supplanted by cheap foreign la-
bor. The United States Commissioner
of i.iiuoi- (a a report on the conditions
in the steel industry reports that dur-
ing May. 1910 ."i0000 persons worked
seven days per week twelve hours a
day or eighty-four hours a week with
the hardships of the twelve-hour seven-day
week increased by the fact
that every two weeks when employees
on the day shift are Iransferred to the
night shift and vice versa employees
remain on duty without relief eighteen
to twenty-four hours
The associated charities at Pitts-
burg estimates $786.00 a year as the
minimum requirement for a man with
n wife and three children. If the av-
erage steel trust employee worked
twelve hours a day for ;'(!." days in the
year he would have just $L"0 short of
this minimum amount. The actuftl
average earning is s:s4b.un a year
Which is less than the earning in any
other trade investigated by the Fed-
eral Commissioner of Labor. The
average income of male heads of
families among iron and steel workers
is only $409.00. In no other trade In-
vestigated is it so law with the single
exception of the wool industry.
If Mr. I'erki'is who is chairman of
the finance committee of the steel
trust and the harvester trust and a
arge stockholder in both if Mr. Hanna
of Cleveland. Mr. Massey of New York
and Mi. Flinn of Pittsburg all of
them largely interested in United
Stales steel are really so much con-
cerned for the great cause of social
and industrial justice they do not need
to wait for the uncertainty of a po-
litical campaign. It is not necessary
for them to have a political party to
control the government to compel
themselves to do justice to their em-
ployees. They have the power to put
an sod to night work by women and
children in the tw-ine mills of the har-
vester trust and to stop the grinding
oppression of a twelve-hour seven-day
week for a starvation wage in the iron
and steel industry. Perkins Hanna
Flinn and Munsey are not contributing
their hundreds of thousands to relieve
their oppressed employees when there
is a much simpler and more direct way
for them to accomplish social and In-
dustrial justice. They are financing
the third term parly for quite a dif-
ferent purpose. They are financing
ft because it stands for legalized pri-
vate monopoly and because they want
a party they can rely upon to serve
their interests which will at the same
time temper the opposition to their
crimes with false pretenses to the
j victims of their Injustice.

MISS ADDAMS VINDICATES OKLA-

entirely to a discussion of the phases

thing in this program has been adopt-

Roosevelt opOOSed through his secre-
tary of war and of which he said his
opinion would not look well la print

measures of human development Okla-
homa has already taken an advanced
position. Notwithstanding this work
