Reports give gratifying evidence
of Republican confidence and act?
The American people are in no
need of quack nostrums, and are too
busy to listen to their vanden.
The fixing of prices by an inter?
state trade commission would ba
both despotic and socialistic.
The farmers of the Northweat are
convinced thnt the third term can?
didate is no longer in the running.
Great combinations of capital and
the cross roads grocery alike flhall
obey the law.
The only way to keep up wagefl
is to keep the tariff protective. __

for eight years, to murder "Big Jack"
Z?lig, th* gang leader who suppbe- tlie
assassins for Herman Rofent^al's mur?
This is the question that has incited
Distnct Attorney Whitman to put forth
his best efforts in inveatigating th?
shooting of Zelig, which took place
thirty-seven hours before the time set
for starting Lieutenant Becker's trial,
at which tho slain qangman was to
have been a vital witness for the peo?
Scarcely any one who has keenly
looked into the case believes that Z?lig
was slain by Davidson on hifl own rn
itiative; opinion inclin?s to the view
rather that Davidson merely acted a?
an agent of parties interested in put
ting Zelig out of the way, just e? Her?
man Rosenthal was dispatched by as?
sassins alleged to have been hired by
interested parties a few hours befor*
th* Tenderloin gambler was to h_ve
revflaled the secr?ts of "tha System" to
Di6trict Attorney Whitmen.
Davidson, who has related several
stories since his arrest, each one con
tradictinjj the others, will probably tell
the truth with the electric chair ?tar
ing Ivm in th? face, before he has been
in the Tombs many hours longer.
This is the hope of the District At?
torney, and what Davidson may tell
when he has had time to understand
his position more clearly may result in
revelations showing an alliance be?
tween the criminal element and some
of the powers that be in this city that
will make the Neapohtan Camorra look
like a Dc**cas .ociety in comparison.
There are many striking coincidences
in the murders of Rosenthal and Zelig.
The gang leader was done to death by
a trafficker in "white -laves," who
could have been arrested by the police
at any momert. Rosenthal was mur
dered by men who were known crim
inals, and who, the suspicion exists,
could have been .mpriscned at pleasure
by the police. And both murdered men
were killed a few hours before they
were to have told what . they knew
about "the System."
Little progress was made l.y tlie a.i
thorltles yesterday |n searchlng for :i
inotive for the murder of "Big Jack"
Zellg. The confessed murderer of the
gangman Insisted that he shot Zelig on
Saturday night on a Second avenue

This, too. was the oplnion of "Big

"Whit.-y" Lewis, "CJyp" the Hlood,

tlie.-e four gangstera, who gave a
lengthy lntervlew to a group of news
paper men. And lt was gjag the opln?

who are stlll out of Jall. Hut none

"'*->-1>" and "I.efty" promlsed that "lt
