OTIC HEHF TRUST l'liOSnCTTIOX.
The public will now have an opportunity
to know Low badly Attorney General Har
mon wants to prosecute trusts. In ad
dition to the evidence furnished by Secre
tary Morton, it has been ascertained that
the beef trust controls the Atlanta, Ga ,
markets, to the exclusion of oilier dealers,
and that it employs an attorney who arbi
trates disputes, assesses fines, and black
lists customer, whenever tliey do not obey
the rules ot the trust. It Is doubtful,
however, if a sincere effort will be made
to enforce tl.eautl trust law In the case of
the beef trust as against any other of the
combines, and the reason for this doubt
Is the fact that no effort tins been made
to do co, although the law has been in
existence for more than two years.
It is a lamentable fact that while beef
has advanced In price to the public nearly
B0 per cent farmers are getting no more
lor their cattle than they did before the
trust was organized. The trust bas a
way of controlling the markets that ab
solutely prohibits competition, and if
shippers decline to sell at trust prices they
ore obliged to hold their clock at con
siderable loss until they find that the
tru-t is really the only large buyer.
Public reutlment Is against trusts, and
sooner or later an administration will be
elected that will drive them out of ex
istence. Let us hope that it will suc
ceed the present one.
I CUBA'S XEW LOAN".
While the scheme of the Cuban Insur
reUioulsts to borrow $10,000,000 on the
hope of success may seem chimerical It
-would be saferto-day than a similar loan to
Epiin. With that amount Judiciously ex
pended Cuba would gain her independence
-within six month3. It would provide war
ships to destroy Spanish commerce, supply
effluent arms and ammunition, and give
suih encouragement to the cause as would
Kreatly liarease her fighting force. It
would, in fact. Insure a Cuban republic.
As security for the loan the Cubans could
offer the collection ot her customs up to a
certain amount, or concessions for build
ins railroads, opening rivers, or making
cueh public improvements -as the rapid
jrrowtb ot free Cubi would make necessary.
But it is hardly likely that the loan can bo
made, inasmuch as -iplta!ists seldom risk
their money on the outcome of war.
rCT YOUHSULF IX HIS PLACE.
The arrest of Major Armes promises to
jiake public certain facts concerning his
military career that may possibly account
for his alleged erratic conduct. In recent
years l.c lias been charged with having
been irrational and violent tempered. If
be has been persecuted, as he claims, and
dismissed from the service on false charges,
hs is represented by reputable "men, there
maj be good reason for his Irascible temper.
Few men can see their futures ruined, their
reputations blackened, and their ambitions
Destroyed without great mental distress,
and If Major Armes js eccentric it should
be remembered that ho has experienced
trouble enough to have entirely destroyed
the minds ot some men.
In 1809 Major Armes was considered a
brilliant and efficient officer. While
stationed at Camp Supply, Indian Territory,
bis Interpretation of duty caused him to
tile charges against a brother officer for
stealing nurses Tliat officer proved to be
b protege of Secretary Belknap, and instead
ot bringing him to trial Gen. Sthofleld
convened a court martial and Major Armes
to dismissed from the service. Afterward
the offk-cr ngalust whom Major Armes had
preferred i-barscs was cashiered arid sent to
the iicnitentlary for ten years. Geo. I'alxner
is also ou record as sayin- that the two of
ficers ou whose testimony Major Armes was
dismissed were totally unworthy of toilet
and that one "was a cooTlctctl felon, a
btetiwurnuB. andatrrartVrrr" When these
facta Insne known Cturest reinstated
Ua;-r Arm-, and at that Mom bo was
eaLfmi as a brave; acd g-aOast atier

evidenco upon which to base tlio rejec

Instead of their signatures to their written
oatbj. Tln.ro was on file in the War De
partment at that time a letter from Gen.
Hancock commending Major Armes for
gallant conduct: the report of Col. Cor

"our common superiors may have in
store," ai.d in the Congressional Itecord
at the Library are the statements of Gens.
Talmer, Crittenden and Penrose and Con
gressmen Wells, Casson and Heilly, nil of
whom praise Major Armes as a bravo
and capable officer. But in Gen. Bclio
field's opinion their evidence was not as
weighty as that of threo ignorant negroes.
These in brief are the outlines ot the
method by which Gen. Schoricld is al
leged to have persecuted Major Armes,
and which led to the delivery ot the letter
and the arbitrary arrest.
Let the public answer how mauy men
could have successfully withstood such
a mental strain as has been put upon
Major Arracs, and if he has not,good
reason to consider himself pcrrccitfed.
His offense was the mere writltg a
letter stating his grievances.
D12DICATIOX OF AIcMAHOX ITALL.
The dedication of the McMahon Hall of
Philosophy at the Catholic UiuA crslty to
morrow will be an event of unusual in
terest, both because of the Incidents con
nected with the donation of It and the
exalted clerical iersonages taking part in
the exercises. Apart -from its immediate
concern to Catholics, not only here, but
everywhere in the United StHtes, it must
enlist the interest of all iieoplc who favor
the enlargement of educational facilities
of a higher order.
Scientific research honestly pursued, no
matter by whom or under whoso aus
pices, is sure to benefit mankind, and
whoever contributes of his means tovrd
the accomplishment of such a purpose
proves himself a philanthropist of the lilgh
est rank. The fouudcr of McMahon Hall
belongs to this class. He was favored by
Fortuneiu iheaeeumulationof large wealth
and is devotlnir it to the noblest object
the enlightenment of his fellow-men.
Father McMahon, himself a-prlcst and a
resident at the uuixcrslty, has seen his
donation grow to completion, and his
generous endowment will bear rich fruit
long after he will have passed away, and
unborn generations will reap the benefit.
The presence of Cardinal Gibbous and
Mgr. Salolll, both of tUiom arc to deliver
addresses, will give the occasion tpecial
1HSTIIICT Al'IMIOIMUATIOXS. -
It is announced that for the next ten days
the District Commissioners will be busy with
tlio estimates to be submitted to Congressat
its next session, Etcry citizen of tlio Dis
trict has a personal interestln thisannouncc
ment, fbr there are few not affected by one
or another of the appropriations.
Attention has be-en called by The TImeo, as
occasion served, to a number of matters
concerning the District which ought to be
urged upon Congress. In ncarlyallof these
cither a new appropriation, or the Increase
of one already made, was invoUcd. So
doubt the Commksioncrs are fully advised
as to the need3 of the different departments
ot the District government. So they haie
been before, yet almost invariably after
Congress had adjourned the cry has been
heard tint tills or the other thing could nrt
be done because of the lack of funds.
The revenues of the District are more than
sufficient to jsupply all the wants ot Its
people. At tlio close of eery fiscal year
a large surplus is covered Into the United
States Treasury. This is done, however,
greatly to the detriment of important in
terests which, if this surplus, orocn part
of it, were applied to them, could bo ad
vanced with much profit to the people.
It Is but necessary to point to the one Itemof
schools to prove the correctness of this
assertion, and as with the schools so It is
witha great many of the oilier branches of
the District go eminent.
The Commissioners should prayerfully
consider these facts which are well known
to them and put the estimates high enough
so that any paring process indulged In by
Congress will yet leave enough for all
CAPS AXD GOWXS.
It is announced that the Talc- seniors of
the academic department have decided
to wear eaps and gowns every Sunday
during the year. For several years classes
lunc worn tuch regalia on state occasions,
but now, for the first time, a class con
cludes to honor every Lord's day in this
Preceding this decision only by a few
days was that of the Justices ot the supreme
court of Pennsylvania, who took similar
action, after long, solemn, and repeated
consultations, and decided to wear when
on the bench the flowing sahlc gowns
ot the British law courts, and which are
worn by Justices of the Surreme Court of
the United States.
One may well ask where this fad for
antique toggery ot British courts and col
leges will lead. When the Yale boys con
clude to wcarthelrgowns every 8uuday in
the j ear it may be accepted as a precursor
of gowns every day of the jear, and their
example and that of the Pennsylvania
Judges will lead to similar action by other
colleges and courts, and general adop
tion of the cap and gown will be a signal
for a rehabilitation of the wig and powder
It is doubtful if real Americans, who
feel that genuine democratic thrill of
heart and soul in favor of equality and
fine simplicity which every American
should feel, will take kindly to this in
novation. The gowns are an imitation
of foreign customs, which originated at
a time when those who trod upon tiiencckB
ot the common people sought to distin
guish themselves from the mob by im
pressive costumes. Ranks- and classes
were known by their dress.
As the spirit of democracy spread, dif
ferences In costumes became less marked,
and perpetuation ot class and official
costumes in civil life more and more offen
sive. Rapid intellectual growth toward
the more perfect democracy which marks
thee last-of Ihe-ccntury das will not be
disposed to look with .favor upon any at
tempt to revie generally these emblems of
monarchical rule and baronial slavery.
If the Tale students will only add bells
to the caps of their new Sunday costumes
they will be as well dressed as were the
professional fools of the Middle Ages.
It costs S3.000.000 a month to maintain
the Spanish army, which added to the
loss of Cuba, will make Don Hidalgo
squeeze bis pockctbook.
No one will object to liquid fuel for
Ironclads If there is hard cash enough in
the locker to pay the exiense.
While the Klowaa are holding a ghost
dance Tammany Is getting ready to se
cure greater freedom for spirits.
