SOME SHARP COMMENT.
R«i>reHC‘ntat!vcM Speak Tlielr Minds a* to
the President’s Letter.
Washington, August 80.—Members
of the House are not so reticent as the
senators in regard to Mr. Cleveland’s
letter to Representative Catching. Rep
resentative Sperry, of Connecticut,
said: “I was in hopes the president
would spare his party the infliction of
another letter. The tariff bill is dis
tinctly a party measure, and according
to the president's letter to Mr. Wilson
it is a measure permeated with periidy
Representative Johnson, (Ohio) —“The
president's letter is conspicuously
silent on the most important question
—sugar. The effect of his failure to
sign the bill and writing a letter will
be to intensify and continue the fight
against protection —not republican pro
tection, as he puts it, but democratic
Representative Warner, (N. Y.) —
“The president’s letter will meet with
unqualified approval from all true
friends of revenue reform, especially on
the party policy there outlined, and the
prog'ram of aggressive action, first
against trusts and then in favor of free
raw materials, and in favor of every
other democratic principle to reach the
fulfillment of which the ranks of
tariff combination must first be j

Mob in the Infected Districts Protesting !
Against removal of the Diseased.
Milwaukee, Wis., August 30.—South j
side polish and low german districts j
are now in the possession of a howl
ing mob. City Health Commissioner j
Kempster has dropped all effort to
control the situation there and the state |
board of health will declare a quaran- j
tine on the infected district, to be strict-1
ly enforced by stretching a cordon of
state troops around it. This is a plan
that has heretofore been discussed and
tacitly agreed on as an emergency re
sort. The south side mob are driving
the guards away from houses quaran
tined by the health department and
defy the authorities to take any more
patience to the isolation hospital which
they say is so badly managed that near
ly half the patients taken there die
within a week.
Fifteen new cases are reported today,
all from the riotous district and the
reckless exposure of hundreds of per
sons to the disease during the riots of
yesterday and today will adds'scores
more to the sick list within a week.

Witnesses for the American Railway Union
Before the Labor Commission.
Chicago, August 80.—Today witness
es for the American railway union will
appear before the national labor com
mission in rebuttal and the sitting of
the commission may come to an end at
once. Chairman Wright says the com
mission has not yet discussed the evi
dence with a view to forming an idea of
what its recommendation will be.
The report will be made directly to the
president and will probably be made up
before the commissioners leave Chicago,
The principal business of the commis
sion yesterday was the examination of
twenty-three witnesses, most of whom
testified that at the meeting at Blue
Island at which the Rock Island men
decided to strike, Vice President How

profane language. The gist of the'tes
timony was that only about one-half
of the men who voted to strike were
railroad men. Besides this, many of
the railroad men present were opposed

THE LIVING ISSUES ATLANTA, AUG. 80, 1894
We Shall See.
On every hand we are now told that
labor will appeal to the polls. Will it?
That has been what we have beea urg
ing it to do for years. The number of
union workingmen in the city of Chi
cago is claimed to be 100,000 to 150,000,
and this does not begin to be the total
number of wage workers in the city.
What have these people been doing all
the time that they have permitted the
political machines to do as they con
tinental please? With this vote they
could have dictated the policy of the
machine or made an independent politi
cal movement a success. Mr. Peffer
says that the people are not represented
in congress. Well, whose fault is that?
There is no sense in grumbling while
there is a disposition to do nothing. It
is very certain that the men who com
pose our congress never could have got
there but for the vote of the people.
They have voted and kept on voting
with both eyes shut and both ears
stopped. They have voted for the pro
fessional tools of monopoly, knowing
them to be such. They have rewarded
the most barefaced official treachery
I and dishonesty at the polls, and now
torn ronnl and enrse their own work.
We shall look forward to November with
j keen interest. We desire to see if all
j this robust determination to appeal to
the ballot will fructify. For 20 years
we have been urging and begging the
i people to become in fact what they are
in theory—the government. The result
!is an open book, and it is pretty neai ly
filled with b’ank pages. Next to noth
ing has been accompUshe 1. (V ill street
i still holds us by the throat. Eastern
and European Shylocks are the power
behind the throne. Our congressmen
take their instructions from the London
Times and legislate for the benefit of
Europe. Is there to be a change after
the November election? We must
wait to see.—Farmer’s Voice.
THE TRUTH OF IT.
Some Light on the Nora Scotia Coal Syndi
A little of the truth about the Nova
Scotia coal syndicate has at last come
to the surface, but it is a small part of
the truth. The whole story yet re
mains to be told, but, it never will be
told by a senate investigating com
mittee which has ro power to compel
witnesses to answer questions, and
without doubt Bill Chandler brought
it up in the senate for the express pur
pose of having it examined by a body
that had no way of getting at the
truth, that a nice whitewashing report
might be made, similar to the report on
the sugar scandal.
It is currently reported and gener
ally believed that the Nova Scotia coal
syndicate was organized in the office
of Mr. Cleveland in New York city a
little over two years ago, and at the
organization Mr. Whitney and Dan
Earnont were present. About $18,000,-
000 of stock and bonds have been is
sued, and the only investment of real
cash was four or five thousand dollars
spent in negotiations in Canada to se
cure the lease.
The company did secure a lease of
the Nova Scotia coal beds for a term
of ninety-nine years, for which it was
to pay a royalty of 12 % cents a ton on
all the coal mined, and there is no re
quirement in the lease that any coal at
all shall be taken out. The syndicate
can leave that coal there for ninety
nine years, never touch it, and there
will be no penalty to pay. Inexausti
ble quantities of it lie right on sea
shore and it can be put into our
seaport towns at a cost so low that
not a mine of bituminous coal can
be worked in either Maryland or Penn
sylvania, if the tariff on coal is taken
off and freights remain the same as
now on the railroads. The grand
scheme is just this: Put coal on the
free list and Mr. Cleveland and his
friends can sell their $18,000,000 of
bonds and stock, which did not cost
them a mill on the dollar, at par, and
put the money in their pocaets.
If a president and his cabinet lias
ever been caught in a more infamous
job than this, history has failed to re
cord the fact. The evidence to prove
these facts was being collected when
Chandler prematurely introduced the
matter in the senate. The motion to
investigate the matter was first de
clared lost, then reconsidered and
finally went to the foot of the calendar.
If an investigation is ordered, the re
sult will be a whitewash after the
manner of the secret sugar inves
tigation, unless Mr. Gorman, ' of
his own free will, furnishes the evi
dence to establish the charges. Gorman
knows all about it, and it depends upon
’ whether it is to Gorman’s interest or
not whether the truth shall be told.
This sham tariff fight is nothing more
or less than a game of bbodle. If there
is free coal, Mr. Cleveland and his
friends will make millions. If there is
a tariff on coal, the coal roads and coal
barons will continue to make their
millions. The question of the Ameri
can workmen does not enter into it at
all, and yet these senate and White
house boodlers talk for hours trying to
make the American people believe that
they are toiling, sweating and working
i through these hot summer months for
the sole benefit of the American work

All Act of Campbell County.
The People's party of Campbell county
met in the courthouse at Fairbnrn, Aug
25th, inst., and was called to order by
the Chairman. W. H. Phillips.
A move was carried to elect W. H.
Phillips chairman for the day, and S. B.
A move was carried to adopt the plan
for putting out a man to make the race
for Representative of Cambell county,
to the next general assembly, that was
formulated by the executive committee.
Next thing was to prepare onr tickets
and vote for our choice, and the result
was that the Honorable William H.
McLarin was elected on the first ballot.
The meeting was very harmonious, not
a discord was seen or heard. Bro. Me-
Larin then came to the front and ac
cepted the trurt imposed upon him by
his people, and gave us a short but ap
propriate address. Bro. McLarin is one
of Georgia's best, patriotic men. and we
think the boys should be very proud to
vote for a g>od, upright, straight for
ward, Christian gentleman. We trust
that the boys will elect him in this race.
We Hre proud to state that we had the
Hon. R ibert E. Todd, our candidate for
congress of the sth district with us to
address us upon the political issues of
the day. Tais noble gentleman
gave us some good, sound doctrine.
His speech lid not consist of anecdotes,
mud thre wing and tom foolery, but
pla'n, simple, solid political facts. He
said nothing that was unbecoming or
degrading to any Christian gentleman.
His speech was very much enj eyed by
The meeting then adjourned, subject
to the call of the chairman.

The First Law of N;itur<*.
If there is one argument in the whole
range of economic philosophy that is
more conclusive and convincing than
another it is that man has a right to
preserve his life, and where there is
denied the right of access to land he is
thereby denied the means to preserve
bis existence, i’rivate property in land
debars man from access to natural op
portunities, i. e.. from the right of pro
ducing the means to live, for is it not
manifest that that system which places
all the natural opportunities in the
hands of the few must necessarily pre
clude the many? It is clear that the
institutions of private property in land,
by enabling the few to exclude the
many from the land, thereby excludes
the many from the natural opportuni
ties absolutely necessary for the. sus
tenance of life, and therefore private
property in land cannot be sanctioned
by the divine law.—Colorado Catholic.
