Senator Sherman, In obedience to
what Eccnied to him n. general demand,
lntiodneed a bill against trusts which
pave promise of deallnir effectively
v itli some of thu.su monopolies. It was
lefcrrcd to the Finnw-o Conunitteo of
the Senate, which reported it favorably.
Then it wnsrcfuircd to the Committee
on the Judiciary, which reported nn
amended bill, or rather n substitute for
the original bill which wholly emascu
lated It and tendered it pcifectly inef
fective. Jlr. Snerman has n poor opinion of
the worthless bill which the committee
has provided. According to the St.
Louis Globe-Democrat "Senator Sher
man does not mince words in speaking of
the fate of his Anti-Trust bill. The bill
which the Committee on the Judiciary
has just reported as a substitute for the
feherman bill will, in the opinion of tho
Senator, bo 'totally Ineffective in deal
ing with combinations and trusts. All
corporations can ride through it or over
It without fear of punishment or de
tection. It is manifest, he says, 'that
if any relief is to be had it must be done
ns the result of popular opinion or by
the action of the House, where amend
wents may be provided which wilt re
store In substance the original design
f the bill.' Ho gives up hope of see
ing any legislation originate in the Sen
nte of such a character as to cope with
the Trust evil."
The Itcpubllcau inajotily of the com
mittee which rendered the Sherman bill
inoperative Is made up of Senators 15 1
munds, Hoar, Ingalls, Wilson of Iowa,
mid Kvarts, and It Is altogether fair to
infer that this aggregation of legal
knowledge had a complete comprehen
sion of what they wcro accomplishing
when they manipulated and remodeled
Senator Slier.tmm's worlt.. It is known
4wA-STatbr 1'latt oi Connecticut char
acterized tho bill which was 'avovftVily
i cporlcd by the Finance Committee as
a "iinmbmj," mid It Is no secret that
Mr. Edmunds was opposed to it. It is,
therefore, by no means a wild or ex
travagant conjecture that Mr. Sher
man's bill was amended with sinister
designs and that It was purposely de
prived of its force.
It is true that the new bill declares
against lllegul contracts and combina
tions and all conspiracies In restraint
of trade, but every lawyer knows that
in piactlce conspiracies are the hardest
things In the world to piove, and that
contracts covering tho most nefarious
designs can bo made to look innocent
enough on tho surface. The great
trouble with tho Judicioiy Committee
subbtitutc Is that It turns n broad,
remedial statute, In which persons were
to bo punished, into an innocuous law,
which corporations can defy because
they cannot be punished criminally.
It Is manifest that if tho bill should
pass as now reported, all corporations
would ride through It or over it without
fear of punishment or prevention,
There Is, Indeed, very little hope that
legislation as at present attempted will
do much good. That tho subject has
been brought under tho light of public
discussion Is in itself, of great, benefit,
hut in all probability it will take popu
lar piessuio to bring Senators, who are
ically tiust attorneys, into accord with
public sentiment on this question.

Tho Commissioner of Pensions has
had a number of tables constructed
with a view to set forth tho facts of tho
late war, aud the figures of these tables
are not only instructive, but Intensely
Interesting. Tho ollicial lists of tho
War Department show that tho number
of deaths In battloon tho Union side,
find from wounds" and disease, was
8(14,110, ami that 23,281 of those who
had been discharged died prior to
July 1, 1803, making a total of
It Is estimated that 1,230,000 Union
veterans aio now living. Comparing
tho records of the Pension Office with
tho accepted American ltfo tables, It is
shown that more than ono third of these
survivors of tho war have, by reason of
their service, shoitened their lives by at
least a dozen years. That is, moro than
every thhd man of tho whole number
of veterans now allvo will be deprived
of twelve yeais of his ltfo through hard
khlps endured In tho campaigns In
-which ho took pait.
Now It stands to reason that, if these
figures aro correct, tho men who served
In tho civil war and whoso lives aro
abridged because of that service, aro
as deserving of pensions as those whoso
disability or dlscaso is directly traco
oblc to the casualties of war. Every
precaution should bo taken to keop tho
Government from being imposed upon
by fraudulent claims. Hut after that
Ib done there is no good reason fqr neg
lecting tho 380,000 veterans whom
General Ilaum's tables show to bo cur
tailed of life ou account of services
rendered in behalf of tho Union. It is
a correct principle that no undeserving
person should get rt pension. But tho
prlnclplo Is also correct that overy man
Tvho Butters in any way through Wq
scnlcrs should rci etvo tho reward
which n lojal people Is moro than
willing to bestow.

Nomly every old printer in Now
York knows Frank Trayner. Away
back in tho fifties he was employed on
the Tribune, and was a prime favorlto
of titillate Horace Greeley. Whon tho
war broko out Tiayncr enlisted In n
Xew York rogiinent. He made n most
exeullent soldier, and at Chancellors

ablo to do much in the way of woik.
However, a layofgood fortune has
fallen upon the battered veteran at
last. Trayner hns been receiving for a
long time a pension of tho modest, not to
say meagre, dimensions of $10 n month.
Among his frlcndsheis fortunate in be

Theio was an obstacle In tho way,
however, which might have puzzled a
less diplomatic statesman than he. That
obstacle was n ccitain member on his
tide of the House whom Mr. Flower
knew would oppose tho bill on general
principles. So Mr. Flower enlisted
Amos Cuinmltigs, himself a veteran of
tho war, In the good cause. Tho journalist-statesman
executed a skillful
llank movement and adroitly drew the
objecting member into tho cloak-room,
and theio held him by his glittering eye
and a funny story.
Tho coat tails of the would-be ob
jector had hardly disappeared within
the recesses of tho cloak-room before
Mr. Flower was on his feet calling tho
bill up, and bofoio Mr. Cummlngs had

There are few, if any citizens in tho
country who will justify the processes
to which both of tho great political
parties of tho country havo had re
course, nccouling to their opportunity,
to so icdistrlct their Stales that their
opponents may find it difllcult to got
elected. Tho latest Instances in this
line are Maiyland aud Ohio. Of tho
Hist little need bo said, because it would
take a great deal of gerrymandering to
make much change In Maryland.
Hut the Ohio ease is diffeient. and it
hns been managed with such evident
intention to handicap Itepubllcans that
even if the movement weic otherwise
justifiable it would bo regicttable on
account of Its palpable Injustice to Mr.
McKinley and the other Ohio leaders.
Neveilheless the Ohio redlstiicting is
as much an accomplished fact as though
it had been done ten years ago.
It is this clicumstanco which leads to
the characterization of the McComas
bill na niMtiaty and vetyoattf
matter of history and of const
law this bill should fail. It is p
in its aim and paitisan in Its method.
In legaid to the clcctious to the Fifty
second Congress, it nttempts without
due authorization to regulate the action
of particular States.
The McComas bill is an attempt at a
palpable usurpation, on tho part of
Corgress, of tho power of tho State.
On its face it looks like a deliberate
plan to prevent majority rule and to
pack the electoral college at the next
Presidential election. Tho principle
of an antl-geirymanderinglaw is cor
rect enough. But tho only way in
which such a law can be adopted with
out suspicion of partisan ends is to
make it general and prospective, and to
render it applicable to cases which aro
years ahead. A general law of that
kind, looking to the future and not to
the past, and drawn up with great care
and knowledge, might be productive of
much good and do away with some

Tin: ANTi-PiioimiiTioN Republicans
of Kansas are sending In huge petitions
to tho Governor asking him to call an
extra session of the Legislature to sub
mit the question of prohibition to a vote
this fall. These petitions arosluned by
nearly a hundred thousand Republican
voters. What has aroused them is the
fact that Kansas received last year but
2,000 immigrants, while Nqbraska re
ceived 102,000 and Texas 127,000. Bo
sides Kansas lost 53,000 population in
the same period.

Tiir, chief (jiMEcnoN to tho admis

has not enough people nB yet to becomo
a State. In lb93 tho population was
estimated by the Territorial Bcorotary
nt C5,C0O, and it Is believed that 100,000
Is not now an unfair statement. Tosay
that this population Is not large enough
to cnlillo tho Territory to Statohood Is
to display Ignorance in regard to tho
precedents in the caso. Missouri was
ndmltted on a population of 00,000;
Indiana, 00.000; Ohio, -15,000, tmd
Mississippi, 153,000. If theio is nothing
