SUGAR SCHEDULEJN THE SENATE.
When llie Democratic members of tlic Senate Finance Commiltce refuse
lo accept I lie free sugar scheme of their political associates of the House,
il is pretty well assured that the people have been heard from and ecn the
fanatics of ihc House are willing to concede that they hae gone loo far,
I he most radical step the Democrats of the Senate committee arc willing
lo lake is a thirty-three and one-third per cent reduction. This of course
would be damaging to the sugar industry but not so absolutely and cer
tainly niinous as the Underwood bill proposal.
We must assume thai the Democrats hae heard from the country. The
people wlto uele surprised and disappointed at the unexpected blow from
Underwood, hae waited up. They liave taken the time and trouble to in
augurate an educational campaign in the halls of Congress, also lo stir the
producers of sugar to a realization that their industry is indeed threatened
with destruction by the Democratic program.
The present situation in the Senate means that the sugar schedule will
be either deadlocked between the Senate and House, or the tariff reduction,
in eent of an agreement, will be somewhere near a point of national san
ity. There is also much to allay the fears of the gentlemen who have been
worrying ocr the possible success of the Democrats in the Fall compaign.
'I he attitude of the Democrats in the Senate shows that the Underwood free
sugar thinkers cannot carry the party with them. If the Democratic lead
ers of the country were by any means a unit on the sugar schedule no pro
posal of thirty-three and one-third pei cent reduction would eer come from
ihc Democratic members of the Finance Committee in response to the free
sugar and excise scheme thai developed from the Democratic Ways and
Means Committee of the House.

Attorney General Wickersliam in a
lerent interview with the representa
tive of the New York World, gave his
opinion of the most baneful feature
of the present corporation law. He
"Piobably no one thing lias gone
more to facilitate restraint of trade
and the growth of monopoly than the
departure from the early rulo of law
that one corporation cannot own stock
In another. Thnt departure was the
most baneful result of the lalsBer.
fnlre policy In dealing with corpora
tions to which the country abandoned
Itself during the Inst thirty years of
the nineteenth century.
"The conditions which have result
ed from the exercise of the expressly
conferred power on one corporation
to take and hold stock In another,
present the most serious obstacles to
effectively dealing with the trust prob
lem. For few If any corporations sole
ly by means of the direct acquisition
of property and the widening scope
of their own business, have acquired
such control of the particular com
merce among the States with which
they are concerned as to constitute
monopoly, or to threaten It.
"Whenever competitors have been
excluded by unfnlr means, and a very
large part of the commerce absorbed
by a particular Interest, the machin
ery by which the result has been ac
complished, will be found upon exam
