AVcnlth How Long Asks Dr William OStiilivnn Before They Have It All There Are Two Solutions of the Problem May EmIln- Dlomlshcd HOW TO DEAL WITH THE TRUSTS The seventh annual dinner of the Metal Polishers and Brass Workers Union was held Friday night at the Labor Lyceum of Brooklyn Trusts Capitalistic and Proletarian were the subject of an ad dress by Dr William J OSullivan the medicolegal expert who is counsel for the New York labor unions Dr OSulli van said in part- IIEuropean civilizations Lave developed under the competitive system The com petitive idea is aggressive and emphasizes individualism Cooperation is a Semitic idea and until recently was rejected by the Aryan race its keynote is collectiv ism The competitive idea is warlike the cooperative idea in its full development is socialism while its incomplete form gives us trusts Labor has blundered by adopting the trust methods of capital and in failing to apprehend its own inequality before the law Capital seeks unfair advantage through the black list Labor presses its demands through the boycott The blacklist I and the boycott are methods cf coerc ing and punishing through concerted action Every argument against one applies with equal force against the other Injj our courts labors great disadvantage isII that the judiciary favors the large vested interests Opulent corporations brush aside the statutes and ignore constitu tional limitations The historian of the future will shock unborn statesmen detailing how Eng land swayed by capitalists perpetrated a wholesale burglary In South AfricaI while the reputed followers of Lincoln x K kt the destructlon 9f semi savage I WAS independence and the possession of coveted territory The methods of these commercial gamblers are ever the same whether imposing semislavery in Kimberly or de stroying a labor union at Idaho Moneyed trusts have taken deep root in our community In my mind the proper method of dealing with them is to develop and extend their cooperative feature In stead of a few predatory rich men con trolling the general necessities suscepti ble of trust formation the community itself should form the trust This would give municipal State and Federal owner ship of the great monopolies- In the United States we create 105 000000 more wealth every month than we consume Based on reliable statistics 24000 persons own onehalf the nationali wealth of the United States both real and personal Our entire wealth is owned by less than 250000 persons The total wealth of the United States is estimated at 82000000000 It has taken 270 years to accumulate this vast amount of property In thirtyfive years 24000 per sons out of our 78000000 have possessed themselves of half of this wealth How long will it be before we are where Rome and Egypt were when their civilizations underwent complete disintegration The day of the labor union with itsI antique methods has reached its sun down The Federal and State administrations cruelly oppress while the courts and the military are crushing them Par liamentary and judicial proceedings on their behalf are farcical and nugatory Might and right have become synonymes and he who has the greatest might is ac corded the most right There are two solutions of the prob lem The first is peaceful and empha sizes the necessity for labor entering poll tics unaffiliated with the older political1l bodies Shaping its progress on cooperative lines for the good of the many and denying privileges to the oppressive few The alternative solution would ale low matters to drift as they are at present j let agitation on property qualifications I for the voter proceed until the toiler isI disfranchised and when serfdom becomesI unendurable attempts to cut the GordianI knot by a rude and bloody argument suchI as the French adopted in 1703 A RECORDBREAKER EUCHRE Unless all signs fail the euchre to be given by Steve Keeley on the lawn of his residence 1 lrty second and Broadway next

Interesting Articles to Bo Printed Weekly THOSE INTERESTED CALLED UPON No people can boast of more lengthy and continuous ancestry than the Irish When nations now prominent before the world for wealth and population had not yet settled down to any of the domestic arts that tend eventually to the civiliza tion and refinement of barbarous and semicivilized tribes Ireland had ad vanced to such degree of intellectual prominence that historians cite her schools monastic institutions her cathedrals and colleges her sees and provinces Of course every one that reads knows the cause of this apparent degeneracy of a people who are most responsive to the call of the intellectual and literary god dess from whose ranks come giants in every profession and whose moral and religious virtues are second to none Many of these old families have kept sacredly the records of their antecedents but too many alas filled with despair when their country was betrayed by the false promises of James II cast aside all hope not of preferment but of ordi nary recognition or justice andceased to write either in song or story the noble record of their ancestry When the destructive raids of Crom well and the English hordes that brought bloodshedannihilation of schools col leges and universities to the island that bedewed its holy soil with the tears of mothers daughters and wives when woe and famine sat

curtail ing the power restricting the privileges I denying franchise and re moving from office and banishing from the country these enemies of liberty The II Rev Dr who iis not well known is probably seeking notoriety even though he violate the precepts of his calling arc teachings of Christianity and dab ble in the mire of political demaI gogy oblivious of the established fact that II when a preacher step into politics he puts one foot inI hell If such II Rev black guards instead of studying upjj libel and billingsgate and slander ing the Catholic clergy and people were to stick to their calling study the precepts of religion and seek to teach morality truth and brotherly love according to Christianity they may not become famous but they would bring less of reproach upon religion and cause less of pre judice and disturbance of the public I Jilinjure the bJ asp whoi they do excite suspicion and hatet ol I the ignorant or thoughtless against the Catholic people Instead of 11condemning the Catholic clergy they would do well to imitate them in one thing at least attend to their business of teaching and mite istering to religion morals peace and good will among men let politics alone and seek rather the glory of Him they profess to ful low than the plaudits of the rabble But just as there was a Judas to be tray and bring suffering to Christ and His disciples so there are and will be to the end priests who fall from grace and fool preachers both manifest lies of the faith they pro fess to cause reproach and persecu tion to Christs followers In this country however MacArthur and ifs ilk do not last long as the American people soon take their measure ANOTHER MENACE The street car men of St Louis after vninly endeavoring to induce the company to consider their de mands have gone on strike and street car traffic is suspended Public sympathy is all but unani mously with the strikers Business a men and the city government are striving to bring about an adjust ment of the trouble the Mayor urging a conference and arbitration To this the strikers replied they had offered this to the company but had been ignored the company an swered there was nothing to arbi trate all they wanted was police protection to enable them to run their cars and demanding that the Mayor furnish such protection There has already been violen- cecand disorder in which the strikers have not participated The comp uy as usual with such arbitrary lptfliissuu enO ones interest but their own is involved and are attempting to carry put their pur pose regardless of the rights prop prey peace or convenience of the entire community and expect to be tacked tip by the city and State governments at the public expetukfij 0- v I The indications are they will be disappointed The people of St Louis seem to realize they have rights to be respected and property and interests to be protected as well as the street railway company andI while it may quarrel with its em i ployes it must do so with its own resources at its expense and inconvenience alone Even if the Mayor and Governor were disposed to furnish the protection asked byI the street railway company it iis doubtful if the people of St Louis would tolerate such a course whirl would only result in disturbance aud bloodshed Of course property will be protected and peace preserved but the railway company should not be given such indorse ment and cooperation by the authorities as amounts to upholding their arrogance and disregard of the public They are but part of the whole not its master their inter ests are not more than others and their duty as great and binding No one whatever his plea or inter ests has the right to disturb the peace trench upon the rights menace the property interests or lives of the public much less be entitled to police protection at public ex pense to enable him to do so Ii the Mayor and Governor do their duty the St Louis Street Railway Company will be halted in their arrogant course and public opinion will do the restforce them to set tle on some sort of terms DEWEYS BAD BREAK Admiral Dewey stated that he lltiota poh i riJia stdlesmant d 1 tf i 1 j ifp tonly a tsailof had no desire to enter politics and declined to be come a candidate for President Subsequently he changed his mind it required no special qualification education or training to be Presi dent since his only duty was to enforce the lawand he launched his boom for President on any ticket any or no platform The shoemaker should stick to his last is more than a mere adage it contains sound logic and fits Dewey exactly Had he followed it not changed his mind remained only a sailor he might have avoided dem onstrating the truth of his assertion that he was not a politician nor a statesman and inviting denunciation and ridicule by attempting to pose as such as a candidate for President His every utterance on State matters and political questions has shown his ignorance and lack of appreciation of their gravity but it remained for the St Louis banquet to afford the climax of his astounding lack of knowledge of the diplomatic and international history of the United States Government and indicates what a good thing for England he would make in the Presidential office In his response at the St Louis banquet he said We the United States can whip any nation on arth except England and she is our best friend Holy smokeI what yer bin readin would exclaim any school boy not at the foot of his history class And this from at candidate for President asking tore placed in authority to represent the people in dealing with other n- at ions That Dewey knows nothing of the diplomatic history of this government is apparent and that ngland would be likely to wield rim as President as she desired to briug about closer relations of the Inglo Saxon race is also evident ut heiis clearly susceptible to flattery of English prpftMtooc of de rated ffriendship and too confiding to sttftpect or cernthe motive Mid 1 urpoM of ouch afectlotuttedeclarae- endj prow the due of Englands c Y compulsory recognition of the indi 1 pendence of the United States she has ignored and sought to harass 1 circumscribe and encroach upon tbe 1 national rights of the United States by every art of deception and trick ery It required the war of 1812 to compel her to recognize AmeriI can rights on the high seas and respect the immunity of the Ameri can citizen Ever since at all times under all circumstances and on al1 iissues arising as the result of our development and growth England has sought to grab some territory acquire some privilege occupy sour position arrogate some right claim some advantage over the Unite States even though in violation of treaty ard international equity iiif not the law and policy of this Government On the Northern frontier in the Bering sea and even now iin Alaska she has used Canada as a catspaw in such procedure claiming jurisdiction police power taxing American enterprise industry and commerce not only within her own territory but even questioning the surveyed lines of demarkation and assuming to act within t America territoryShe the latest aud most persistent violator of the Monroedoctrine and foiled in this now seeks to pre vent the United States from building the Nicaragua canal or at least having her privileges preferred over other nations in the matter if it iis built And thus it is and has beet continuously England has alway intruded interfered obstructed and sought to despoil us of some thing always professing friendship but seeking gain and profit Nc other nation has done sotIf they have had claims or rights involved at any time they have presented them formally and settled them in the usual diplomatic way openly and honorably And all nations except England have been uniformly and unceasingly the friends of the United States England alone has been and iis still our uncompromising persistent and wily enemy and England hone is the only nation that has ever provoked war with us and the ginlytiattonwe ve ever tvhipped endthat twice Of course we do not count Spain which did not de clare but sought to avoid war with is and whose defeat was a foregone conclusion before a gun was ired and Spain has ever been a sincere and honorable friend of the Juited States But Dewey does not seem to have read that history or to have heard much ot it What a sorry spectacle he would make as a candidate for President I A target for the pun ster a butt of ridicule for even the mall boyI For iin politics Dewey vould be simply a candidate and his glory as the hero of Manila vould not overshadow his shortcomings in qualifications nor effect his utterances on matters he does not understand Dewey should dropout of politics as suddenly as he ntered His place is the one he low occupiesAdmiral of the navy in which he has brought glory toI the nation and honor to himself Admiral Dewey should
