V for preventing "outrages of the mayor and his venal council", which they loudly declare, border on "anarchy." The. ousting of Arnold is not the only thing that some strongminded, presevering citizens hold against Mayor Speer. , Some time ago, citizens of Denver, decided they'd like to try the commission form of government, and see if it wasn't a little bit better than government by Speed's Democratic machine. As the initiativeand referendum is in operation in Denver, these dissatisfied citizens circulated a petition calling on the city council to hold a special election to decide about the commission form of government.

WBmmmmmmmmmsm. it-! TRUSTS DO NOT LOWER PRICES Louis D. Brandeis completely demolished the defences of the trust system and squarely joined the issue between standpatters and insurgents by his speech in support of the LaFollette bill before the senate interstate commerce commission. He proved that the trust is wasteful rather than efficient, and that it has succeeded as a business .proposition only when it has been able to arbitrarily fix. prices by virtue of monopoly. He demonstrated that the steel trust has been beaten in the world market by the independent manufacturers of Germany and England. He showed how the, trusts have destroyed trades unionism, reduced wages, increased the working Jiours, driven Americans out and brought foreign immigrant labor into the mills, and planted seeds of misery and hate that already bear the poisoned fruit of violence. , He, exposed the injustice and futility of the tobacco trust settlement effected by the United States supreme court and said the ...

So I set about training for it. And the training carried through years of discouragement and hard, tedious work, but I kept on plugging. In the elimination races at Boston, to decide who would represent the United States in the English marathon race, I finished second to Morrissey. He beat me by only a few seconds and my spurt during thelast 500 yards of the race, caused the committee to take me to Europe.

mmmmm&mmmmmmmm THE REMARKABLE AND UNSELFISH REGARD OF J, OGDEN ARMOUR FOR THE-AMERICAN FARMER . We must stop the prosecution of the Beef Trust! There's nothing else to it ! J. Ogden Armour, the aristocratic-head of the trust, whose first name is one of life's little mysteries, has explained why. He has "granted an interview" f 'BW' " " i J. Ogden Armour. "to the press. (If you will look at the Chicago dailies, you will see that this phrase is correct. J. Ogden was not "interviewed." He "granted an interview" like the czar does.) The cause of J. Ogden's condescension was the news1 that the British- government has decided not to deal with. men indicted on a criminal charge to-wit, the Chicago packers. It was this calamity, which means a loss of trade valued at $15,000,000 a year to the packers, (that caused J. Ogden to forget his aristocratic pose for a moment, and try hard to Be human. With sorrow in his voice, and tears in his eyes, J. Ogden announces thaf the refusal of...

wmmmmmmmmmm THE SINGLE TAX WHAT IS IT? -Article No. 4. By Edmund Norton. jpne of the first questions that comes to our mind is: "Why -should we tax land values alone and let labor-lvalues and capital go untaxed? - i The first shor answef'to this question 'is: "Labor values and capital values are private creations. Private values created .by individuals belong- to the individuals who create them; while public values are: the creation of society and belong to the society that creates them. When the public values are always'more than the needs of the society that creates them, why should we let private persons collect these values and then turn about and let the public go around any old'way that is handy and take the private creations of individuals-to pay the expenses of society? The Single Tax is already collected every year in the iorpi of rents by landlordism all over the world. In most civilized countries a small portion of these rents are-taken in taxes.

Occasionally Bill thought the umpire missecTa decision, but madVknown his belief in a gentlemanly manner. Bill's favorite, in fact only expression, used to express' his'belief that the umpire erred was: "Why was i a strike?" "Why was it a ball?" "Why wasithe runner out ?-"i "Why was the runner safe?" The umpire always gave Bill his reasons for so deciding, and ended the discussion. Dineen broke in as an umpire as my partner. He had really never done any umpiring, to speak of, and, I was interested 'to see how he would act when some player took him to task. Bill started near the close of 1909, when the race was over. yAlways popular, the veterans were pulling for him to succeed, and not a protest was made by them. It was a recruit, fresh from the bushes, who gave Bill his taste of argument between player and umpire. The youngs...
