Which is the Anarchist? *
You charge the Kansas and Nebraska
farmer 13 cents to haul his grain 200
miles. You charge the grain dealer 6
cents to haul that same grain twice as
far to Chicago. I tell you gentlemen,
it is that kind of business that is making
anarchists out of the farmers west of
the Missouri river.
This is not the language of a socialist
ic agitator; it did not fall from the lips
of one seeking to stir up sedition against
the plutocracy; it was not uttered by
one of Edward Atkinson’s “silver luaa
tics, idiots or criminals. ” Those were
the words addressed by President A. B
Stickney, of the Chicago Great Western
railroad to a group of railroad officials
and attorneys who had been summoned
before the Interstate Commerce Com
mission in Chicago to tell what they
knew about alleged violations of the
Was ever severer arraignment made
by the veriest anti-monopolist of the
methods employed by the railroads to
subjugate the farmer and destroy the
profits of agriculture? When thieves
fall out, honest men get their dues, it is
said and had Mr. Stickney been permit
ted to keep right on talking, some inter
esting data might have been presented.
But the Chicago Evening Post is author'
ity for the statement that “railroad
ethics” has sealed the lips of President
fjrickney against further expression, ! and
that all the other fellows had forgotten,
when the commission assembled the next
day everything they ever knew aboutanv
rate -cutting or any other breach of the
law, which they had been so witling
but the day before to tell all about.
But enough was said to prove to the
farmer that the charges made against
the grinding exactions of the railroads
are true; that he is placed beneath the
upper and nether millstones of low pri
ces in the markets and extortionate
railroad rates to get his products there.
The most damaging assertions ever
made against the railroads have come
from men like Mr. Stickney or the for
mer president of the Union Pacific sys
tem, Charles Francis Adams, who knew
from intimate acquaintance with all the
Retails that the methods of the railroads
Pvere dishonest and calculated to impov
erish the men who produce the bread
stuffs and meats for the world, and Mr.
Stickney has himself gone so far as to
ksay that the only true solution of the
tfaidWffi ‘"problem' lies! ia government
ownership and control.
President Stickney made one mis.
statement. The farmers are not becomS
iug anarchists. They are as lawabidiug
today as they were when hundreds of
thousands of their numbers responded to
the call for troops aud went out to fight,
todie, if need be, to preserve the Union-
They cannot be driven to anarchy by
machinations of railroad officials who
calmly override all law and insist that
they are a law unto themselves. But
the farmers of the country are coming
to realize more deeply than ever that
the charges made by Mr. Stickney are
true, aud that they are trying to discov
er the best method of forever settling
the difficulties pointed out by him.
When they are sure they are right the
railroads will find it out, not bv any
anarchistic outbreak, but by such an
appeal to law, an appeal so resolutely
and so firmly made, that the Legisla
tures of the states and the Congress of
the nation, and the president in the
White House will not dare for one mo
ment to resist it. There will be a revo.
iution in railroad affairs, but it will be
brought about by the peaceful processes
of evolution and in conformity to law
and the constitution. —Chicago Far

Artificial flowers have had a remark
able run in millinery this season, but
already there is a growing tendency to

tops. Breadth appears to be a feature
in hats as well as bonnets, and trim-

large hats. The newest thing in this
line is a wide tulle veil, tied loosely
about the hats, with the ends brought

The Tea Cigarette.
The tea cigarette has already been in
troduced as an after dinner entertain

said to be very welcome, since it enables
the ladies to keep their hushan s com

tea cigarette is about three inch's long
and of the size of a lead pencil. The
