A Good Plan.
In a recent speech Mr. W. J.
Bryan offers the best plan that s
has thus far been presented for I
the solution of the trust problem, u
and his proposition is receiving I
the endorsement of prominent I
republicans as well as Democrats. a
Mr. Bryan shows that it will i
not be wise to depend entirely on 1
State legislation. If one State 1
enacts anti-trust' legislation, and a
the trust allowed to operate in
other States, a grinding corper
tion that controls the enti'e c
output of a certain article of ne- a
cessity can inflict great damage I
to the interests of any State that t
openly declares its antagonism. t
Mr. Bryan suggests that the a
evil can be corrected by federal r
license. Every trust will be de- t
nied a license to do business in I
the United States. Any corpo
ration that does business in a le- E
gitimate way can obtain a license.
Each State, however, will retain
its right to protect itself from
any corporation, notwithstanding
the federal license.
This plan in our opinion would
destroy the trust evil. It cannot
be declared unconstitutional, for
a similar policy has been pursued
by this government in the Inter
nal Revenue Department for
many years without either im
periling either States' or Fede- 4
A strong anti-trust wave is
sweeping over this country, and
the opponents of trusts would do
well to contrast Mr. Bryan's man
ly, statesmanlike speech with the
babyish utterances of Mr. McKin
ley, who, while acknowledging
the trust evil, is too weak and
too incompetent to break away
from the domineering influences
that surround him, and offer any
t suggestion that could aid the
American people in the task they
have before them.

on dignity or riding a
qualification of Voters.
It is not surprising that people S
should be unable to grasp the
meaning of the new registration
law; it is so cumbersome and li
complex that it requires a knowl- a
edge of law to understand it; t
even good lawyers disagree as to its c
proper meaning. The worst fea- t
ture of the law is the clauses t
as to the qualification of voters 11
and how to qualify themselves.
Of course a careful reading of
the law will dispel some of the
uncertainties as to its meaning.
The poll tax section is generally t
misunderstood, but it is construed
to apply only to the fall elections, e
or the Presidential election ;
there is not much dispute about t
this feature; the poll tax section U
does not apply to voters in the a
election to be held in April. t
Under Section Five all who
listed before September, 1, 1898,
will be entitled to register now, t
and for all elections hereafter. '
This class of voters need not
possess the educatioual or prep- t
erty qualification in order to vote ; g
they constitute a privileged class t
and can vote simply because they N
were fortunate enough to have I
possessed a father and grand
The educational qualification is I
not hard to possess, but if you t
were unfortunate in your youth t
in not having the benefit of
schools, you will not be permitted
to register and vote in the event
that you had not the industry and
frugality to accumulate property
assessed at $300. This is a very
good law, as some good and
worthy citizens pay taxes and con
tribute to the schools and good
of society who are unable to read.
In January and February the
above named classes will have an
opportunity to register. They
should de so, and do it early.
The election in April is a very
important matter and no voter
should neglect to vote.

From our Regular Correspondent.
Washington, Feb. 26, 1900.
The Democrats of the House
have a light to claim the
amendment of the Porto Rican
tariff bill, which the Republi
cans were compelled to make at
the eleventh hour in order to get
the Republican votes needed to
pass the bill, as a party triumph.
The firm and united attitude of the
Democrats was what enabled the
Republican objectors to force the
amondment of the bill.
As predicted, the gold standard
bill reported from the Conference
Committee is a little bit worse than
either the House or Senate bill.
It contains every objectionable fea
ture that was in both, and has
made most of them nore objection
able. As the Republicans have
the votes, the Conference bill will
probably be rushed through this
week. It has already been agreed
that the Senate shall vote upon it
Quay is in sight of success, A
test vote made it sure that he will
get the seat when the final vote is
taken. A number of Democrats
will vote to seat him as a matter of
Senator Butler, Chairman of the
Populist National Committee, ex
presses the opinion that the at
tempt to create friction between
the Democrats and Populists will
fail. Speaking of the nomination
of Col. Bryan, Senator Butler said:
"Bryan will be the choice of three
elements, the Democrats, the Pop
ulists and the Silver Republicans.
The two latter will meet on the
same (lay, if present arrangements
are carried out, and will in all o
probability unite upon the same M
candidate for Vice-President?."
Representative Richardson, the k
Democratic leader in the House, s
has by a new resolution, added the
steel frust to the sugar trust, the
tin trust, and the oil trust, the
products of which previous resolu
tions authorize the Interstate Com
merce Commission to prohibit the a
transportation of Interstate Trans- d
portatiou lines whenever they have
knowledge that the prices asked p
for the goods produce profit in ex- g
cess of 4 per cent on the actual cap- t.
ital invested in the trust which C
controls them. 1i
Mr. McKinley has tendered
places on the new Philippine Com
mission to two gold Democrats
Gen. Luke E. Wright, of Tenn.,
and Mr. Henry C. Ide, of Vdrmont.
Inasmuch as both of these gentle
a men are supposed to endorse the r
financial as well as the foreign pol
t icy of the Republican administra
tion, it is farcical for McKinley to
expect the Democratic party to
recognize them as its representa
tives on the Commission. It is
equally falrcical to label the new
Commission non-partisan, when
everybody knows it to be thorough
e ly imperialistic.
Although the Wisconsin Demo- I
crats made a strong and almost a
- winning light for Milwaukee, none
- of them have shown the slightest
n disgruntlement over the choice of
. Kansas City for the National Con
s vention by the Democratic -Nation
al Committee. Like all other good M
Democrats, they believe in majority
rule, and accepted the vote of the
Committee as ending the contro- M
versy. It is the same with those Mi
Democrats who advocated holding
the convention ahead of that of the M
Republicans. Upon second thought Ml
every Democrat recognizes how
fitting it is that the party
stands for the true America con- -
struction of the Declaration f In
dependence and of the Const ution,
should. hold its- National / onven
tion on Independence Day. w
Indianapolis has been uam as .
the place and Sept. 5 as the ime tr
for holding the National Conven- ra
tion of the Association of Demo- m
cratic Clubs, by the Execjtive ta
- Committee of the Association.
Senator Vest thus sized up the n
- epublican policy in a short
speech: "The proposition that the
h U. S. can hold territory as a colo- -
sial possession and its people as
t vassals, is the most preposterous
n and dangerous that has ever been i
d advanced in the course of my pub- i
o lic life.

Adella, my dear little frie 'd,
I promised these few lines, sweet;
To the COURIER to-day I will send
Yonu pretty brown eyes they'll greet.
You told me you loved me
Those words echo in my heart,
And your friend I'll always be,
Even your troubles I'll take a part.
A few weeks since we have met
Only a abort while before we part:
It seems impossible, and yet
They say you soon must start.
They have dear missed you so much
The Donaldsonville home you've bright o
Thus by your hand-a simple touch-
Many heavy hearts you've lightened. F
When you leave, I will think of you '1
As of a little precious sunbeam
Across my pathway, God threw
To make life a sweet golden dream.
Your dark eyes are so bright
W'- n excitement holds them last- I
Within them beam a radiant light
As upon your friends they are c ist. t
This long puleasant stay in Opelousas- a
Your joyous laughter all hearts does in
It would be impossible, almost useless
To try to count the friends you've made.
A kind thought, a sweet gentle word
Upon the 1aeart care often falls. f
In after years theceho is heard; t
Thus many happy hours memory recalls.
"O! if he calls me," our little song.
When all your girl friends met
What a gay, glad joyous throng
The rememberance lingers yet.
Before the parting words are spoken
Before we separate for many years,
Vowing our friendship will be unbroken,
Causing us to check the rising tears.
