1905 DrUL Taylor Columbia Ky My Dear Uncle Your kind letter ask ing me to define socialism to hand The word Socialism is from the latin l Socius companionship fellowship thinking feeling and acting in harmony of being agreed upon some main principle of social action A socialist community would be one where the people were living and working in harmony instead of contending with and seeking to get the better of each other It would mean peace insteadof war and conflict Universal or international socialism would mean the disbandment armies the cessation of grevious taxation to build battleships construct fortresses cast cannons make rifles swords and all the dead panoply of home A high court of arbitration would settle all cases of national dispute if any occurred which would be very doubtful as the common welfare would be seen to be the welfare of every part of the International Republic Production and distribution of the necessaries of life would be the principal employment of the People and as this would require only apportion of the time the rest would be devoted to recre ation education and the method Ieof education will be very largely and not the tiresome and exhaustive process as it is now But leaving these generalities let us discuss the specialties of socialism as the majority of pe- oplehave a very confused idea of what it really is And the ut terances of some professing socialists instead of explaining have added to the general con fusion This happens becausep these teachers have only grasped some of the incidentals instead of the essentials of the doctrine True socialism will be found in accord with humanperfect nature in its assental elements and c also with the great law of evolu tion Hence it has taken long u periods of time to work out and applyits principles in the intellect Tial conscientiousness of man Its progressive unfoldment through the vast periods of human evolution is a most interesting study but I have not the time or space to follow it out as I have a more specific phrase of the question to considder and illustrate The basis impulsion of socialism is the same as that of all an imal existance of every kind It is selfism that is the potential impulsion of the brute and the angel In its manifestation it is wise or unwise In its unwise form of action it is termed self ishness The difference between the wise and the unwise phase is this The unwise manifestation injures another in its action it is selfregardless of others rights or welfare and often with direct purpose to injure another On the other hand wise selfism is as careful of all interests as of its own it knows thattan injury to one is the concern of all because all are harmed if one is injured Wise selfism is identical with altruism because it knows that each person is a unit factor of the hu man wholeness and that wholeness is permeated with a common life the same as the several members pf the human body Therefore the integrity of one integritysequently the perfection of the whole depends uponthe perfection of its many members AS the earth has an atmosphere sohashumanity aIlas any great charigein afn os hel1 conditions i l iJ1 af tiw yf t t Iy dt h ri in one place affects more of less the entire atmosphere so a great disturbance of the human at mosphere affects the entire hu manity The population of the earth is greatly affected by the Russa Japanese war Our earth is one of the unit factors of the solar system as is each planet comet or other body embraced in the sun influence All these bodies affect each other but the sun the great center ex erts the most sensible influence upon the earth and its inhabitants as is the sun to the many plants so in a large measure is the whole humanity to the individual manWise selfism comprehending all these principles and facts and the influences springing there from is most scruptuously exact in refraining from all possible in jury to another for it sees in that other one of the vital mem bers of the humanitary whole nessSefishness is indistructible it is and must be the spring to all human actions of the most self ish and the most unselfish Hence it is one of the most foolish things to endeavor to abolish self with the mistaken idea that self and altruism are antagonistic to each other By so doing we are fight ing that which can never be overcome and are wasting our energies in a popeless conflict Socialism has discovered that wise sel sm and altruism are identical they mean the same thing and right here is where the great mistake is made as to the charactor of socialism It is charged that it appeals exclusive itIarrays classes by teaching and insisting upon class consciousness It does nothing of the kind That some socialists are selfish is not denied unsefishIIs it among those who oppose socialism born and reared amid a selfish race with institutions and laws conspiring to give the s e 1 fis h the opportuni ty to rob us at every turn would it not be strange if people were not selfish The entire trend of our educational methods civil and religiousis a contjnuous classIconsciousness so cialists is not dividing people into antagonistic factions but is simp ly a recognition of the economic classification which social selfish ness has created As said before we mnst expect that there will be more or less selfish feel ing injected into discussion of the question but the principles are as far from endorsing selfish ness as the north is from the southSocialism advocates wise self ism it continually appeals to the instinctive selfism of our common nature it would be folly to do otherwise It is impossible to present a motive which will in duce action that does not involve the element of self Even those acts where self is apparently forgotten for the sake of some other self as when a man plunges into the water or rushes into a burning building to save some one en dangered it is selfism in its noblest phase outworking for the common good It is the subcon scious or the real self that made the plunge So on the part of the genuine socialist it is the wise selfism which proclaims the ne cessity of class consciousness and the political union of social ists in order to secure the alienat ed rights of the people But it is objected that socialism proposes to forcibly take away the great fortunes of such men as Morgan Rockefeller and others and divide them among the masses Socialism proposes to seize the fortune of no person be it great or small and convey it to others But wise selfism does propose to V theseri i r n r li i LIk 4 vast fortunes have been acquired and to prevent the accumulation of others like them It also pro poses to recover to the people the vastvealthof which they have been dispoiled But it does not propose to do this by any forcible seizure It will persue the same legal method which all govern ments adopt for their support and perpetuation it will inforce the law of eminents domain and levy taxes upon property in such ways as will gradually but surely bring back to the people that of which they have been robbed They have been robbed according to law and they will be reinstated according to lawSocialism has no such foolish purpose as is attributed to it by ignorance and malice ofviolently seizing the property of thewealthy and dividing it among the people With present laws and business methods this would be perfectly useless formna short time the same conditions would appear hence socialism proposes such changes in legal methods as will make accumulation of great private fortunes impossible and this will surely decrease and eventually whip out those now in existence one thing it most certainly will do and that is the restoration of the land to the people This is one of the most rad ical propositions and also one of the most necessary ones for hu man progress and happiness This necessity is universally rec ognized and is indirectly affirmed by all governments The com mon law of eminent domain is a full admission and our home stead lawthe partial efforts of the British government in refer ence to the purchase of land by the Irish tenants and the claims of the Russian peasants are all so many evidences of the general conviction that the land belongs to the people and not to a few socalled landlords Socialism is an absolute neces sity to save the country from this pernicious system of injustice and legal robberry of the people Every lover of his country every careful thinker should study the principles of socialism and himself of their correctness and importance of their speedy adop tion by the people Your affectionate nephew J E Taylor Caught in Indian Territory- T D Underwood former County Attorney of Barren county was arrested at Atoka Indian Territory last Friday on a tele granifrom Sheriff Geo T Parrish notifying the town marshal there that thy grand jury of Barren county had returned an indict ment against him for a felony Underwood is now being held un til an officer from this place can reach there with requisition pa pers The grand jury late Thursday afternoon handed in two indict ments against Underwood one charging him with selling liquor without a license and accepting a bribe to omit to do his duty as an officer The grand jury also re turned an indictment against RE Coombs for receiving a bribe to omit to do his duty Judge Jones at once ordered bench warrents issued for the two men and fixed the bond in each case at 3000 Friday morning Sheriff Parrish sent telegrams to every point where the two had been heard from since they left here arid that afternoon received a tele gram from the Marshal of Atoka notifying him that he had Under wood in custody He at once aP- plied to Gov Beckham for are quisition and the papers arrived here yesterday morning Deputy Sheriff S T Button left here yes terdayaftemopn to bring Under wood back If he has np trouble yin Atoka he wjll reach Glasgow 1 tt c wikysr i l r 3 f with his prisoner Saturday Sheriff Parrish has not heard a word from any of his telegrams in regard to Coombs There are several parties in the County who have been in correspondence with him since he left Glasgow but none of them has as yet disclosed his whereabouts to the Sheriff The law under which the men were indicted was passed by the last Legislature and makes it a felony for any executive minis terial or legislative officer to ac cept a bribe to omit to do his du ty The penalty is confinement in the penitentiary for not less than one nor more than five years Glasgow Times Big

Texas for good sound energetic and in dustrious workers to come into the Southern States and there is not a disposition to keep out the oppressed from other coun tries Coming at a time when there is something in the nature of a movement to remove restrc tions from Oriental emigrants this call for help may be constru ed as a willingness to accept Chinamen for laborers There are many negroes in Texas and other states but the inference is at least insinuated that they do not meet the demands of la borers The high idealist though they should not be asked to abeat their zeal for universal knowledge will- izenship have to admit that cit and education do not necessarily hand in hand with de shuble an de hoe If Tex can get good sound energetic and industrious Chinese labor ers who are willing to put their hands where they are needed and who will stay out of the cities the exclusionists should be willing to let down the bars a little but we apprehend that the Lone Star State is well

throughout the country could have been received at that time The glorious fourth was great in its begining but wreck less in these latter years It is not believed by prominent Democrats nor influential Repub licans in the city of Louisvilie that Mr J T ONeal can defeat Mr Barth for Mayor The above- statement is gathered from gentlemen who are on the ground A prominent Republican said to the News I am an ardent sup port of Republican principles but I will vote for Mr Barth and I know hundreds of others who will do likewise I have nothing to say against Mr ONeal but I know Mr Barth to be a clean man in private and public business af fairs and I will support him He will be elected mark my prediction The gentleman who made the above statement has been in business in Louisville for

sympathy for that race of people but the United States dont need any more than she now has If Booker wants to run with them it would cost him but a small amount to buy a tick stset from New York to China A move is on in China to boy cot American goods in retaliation to the American exclusion act The celestials are petitioning President Roosevelt protesting against this act arid pointing out its hardships on Chinese mer chants and students The fact is that if there is a nation that has a just right for boycoting the products of another it is China but imigration from China is detrimental to America and rather than have the Chinamen we pre fer the loss of their trade It is safe to say that the boycot will not change their condition or po sition toward this country Judge A M Cochran of the United States Court forth Eastern District of Kentucky last week handed down a decision holding that the Caleb powers case was transferred theUnited States Court by his petition for removal He ordered the writ of habeas corpus to issue to transfer the custody of the prisoners person to the Federal authorities The attorneys for the State will take an appeal to the United States Supreme Court An order was issued that pending the ap peal the prisoner should be kept in jail in Newport Judge Coch rans order will be obeyed and Powers will be transferred he has directed The decision did not come as a surprise to the peo ple here The Taylor County Enquirer takes issue with the News and thinks it is proper and right to bemean one candidate for United States Senate in order to give the other the caucus nomination The part of the News who is now writing has known the editor of the Enquirer twentyfive years and in all that time never doubted his Democracy but often the best of party men say impru dent words thereby damaging the cause they espouse The En quirer does not know which can didate the News favors for United States Senator It may be for same man whose claims he itlhasaspirant Again every thing quoted in a newspaper as having been said by a candidate is not at all times true Senator Black burn commenced fighting the battles of Democracy when the Enquirer man and the writer were in their frocks and even if he has said some imprudent things is it right to decry him now in the evening of his life He is honorable and does not de serve to be abused at this time The News likes the editor of the Inquirer but would advise him to put on the breaks A mob of nearly 100 masked men Went to the jail at Russell ville on the night of July 4th for the purpose of stringing up four men who had criminally assault ed Mary Gladder a German girl but fortunately or unfortunately as it may be considered only one was taken the others escaping were landed in the Bowling Green jail for safe keeping We have never endorsed mob violence in its general application for that of its self is the worst form of lawlessness and in fact murder but there is a crime that in our judgment a mob

to Mr A B Gowdy of Campbellsville immediately taking up her residence in that city where she died on Friday the 30th tilt A years after she became a resident of Campbellsville she and her husband

the afflicted Her husband has been in feeble health for desireIand the lonely and sorrowing companion left Since the beginning of the married lives of this couple they have lived happily and comfortably in their cozy home in Campbellsville until a short time ago when they broke up housekeeping for the purpose of visiting relatives in California and had all arrangements made when Mrs Gowdy was taken ill They had no lived as one happy and childrenI The writer reached few hours after the interment and was told by several different persons that no better woman ever died nor one who will be

here this morning violently insane having brutally murdered his wife and attempted his own life He will be taken at once to the asylum at Lakeland Last Friday afternoon while Mrs Steenberger was milking her cows in the barn her husband crept up behind her with a piece of wood taken from a fence dealt her a fearful blow over the head As she fell he struck her again and again and leaving her for deadwent into the house and with razor slashed his throat cutting the windpipe twice He then lay down to die and was bleeding to death when found by another member of the house hold He could not talk and it was a halfhour before Mrs Steenbergers body was found in the barn with one of her cows standing patiently by as if waiting to be milked- Steenberger and his wife had been on the best of terms and the tragedy is attributed only to a recurrence of acute mania with which the man had before been afflicted Previously however it had taken only a suicidal turn Mrs Steenterger was fiftyone years old and the mother of eight children She was a hard working woman and their home was not marred by troubles of any kind It is believed her husband will recover from his wounds but his mind is

July 1st by appointment of Governor Beckham to succeed Judge J S Cooper recently appointed by President Roosevelt Collector of the Eighth Kentucky Internal Revenue district No citizen of Pulaski county is better known throughout the State than Ben V Smith especially the Democratic circles At home he has the respect and confidence of men of both parties His position as Judge of the county for the brief term of six months is a delicate one requiring discretion and a knowledge of the duties of the office which he possesses in an eminent de lgree Judge Smith may hold views upon National

Somerset Journal Another Warning Not long ago we gave to our readers the usual warning against investing their money in ventures far from home where according to the pretentious ad vertisements the pastures are greenf rI than those near at hand The oil business has its legitimate side and to those who understand the industry it is profitable It also has its illegitimate side witn many snares attached to it to catch the unwary In our judgment to be specific there is being advertised an enterprise under the name of Uncle Sam at Cheeryville Kansas that is good thing to let severely alone al least one prominent citizen in Pulaski county who made an investment in this pretentious scheme thinks so anybody promises a profit of WhEnI cent to investors in a business of j he knows absolutely nothing and offers stock at 8 cents a share which he prom ises shall be worth 25 cents a share be fore the business proposed is begun one may safely say that the proposition is absurd and made to deceive that the man making it is following the same old game of fishing for suckers and fleecing lambs In our judgment the Uncle Sam Refinery Company of Cherryville Kansas is trotting in that class

report of the Chicago Federal grand jury report are not so for tun te as to enjoy the personal friendship of Mr Roosevelt or the members of the jury are so unfortunate as to be unable to agree with him in his remarkable conclusion that a corporation can violate the laws without the knowledge or consent of the men who constitute the corporation but whatever the reason the important fact remains that the report as submited goes di rectly to the root of the evil and fixes the blame on those responsible for the wrong In declaring J Ogden and Charles Armour Louis F Swift Edward Cudahy Edward Morris their associates and their confi dential employes guilty of viola tion of the Sherman and Elkins laws the grand jury has indicted only those men who could have made such violation effective or long continued The counts on which the indictments are return ed are six in number and include practically every count on which complaint was made by the rais er the shipper and the consumer embracing the prevention of competition in buying and selling an equal division of territory for trust purpose a prorata distribu tion of the spoils and the farm ing out of the manufacture and sales of byproducts The jurys investigation has been exhaustive and seemingly unprejudiced Apparently the character of the testimony submitted left no ques tion in the minds of the jurors of the guilt of the accused in spite of the efforts put forth by a de fense composed of the most pow erful elements in this country The way is now open for the Administration to push the trial of the accused to a speedy and legitimate conclusion in which the law the evidence and the widereaching effect of the offen influenItial stand in the matter of the Sante Fe case has weakened the confidence imposed in his good faith in the matter of trust prosecution instancelwill be grave con cern for it is one touching the everyday life of the people more closely than any other action in behalf of existing laws in which
