Amrlcan standpoint, but it haa certain
obvious advantages over the more nefar
ious art of assassination.
Boston Advertiser: Recent decisions
of the United States Supreme court have
tended to curtail quite largely the power
which the Interstate Commerce Commis
Blon has attempted to arrogate to Itself
during recent years. These decisions are
making It clear that the functions of the
Interstate Commerce Commission Is
i hlefly executive, and does not command
that Judicial quality which the commis
sion Itself baa attributed to its office.
The Supreme court appears to regard the
Federal courts as entirely competent to
deal with questions of the violation of
the interstate commerce act, and It is re
eistlng Bteadlly the evident attempts of
the Interstate Commerce Commission to
perform the functions of such court.
Chicago Chronicle: Down In Ken
tucky, where all sorts of odd things hap
pen, a Methodist preacher who held
some theological views at variance with
those of his congregation, was aroused
at midnight and' escorted out of town by
three of his flock armed with shotguns.
This method of adjusting doctrinal dif
ferences Is somewhat drastic, but It has
its advantages. It saves the scandal and
annoyance of church trials, for one
thihg, and it conduces to liberality upon
the part of the pastor. For he would be
an Inflexible dogmatist Indeed who
would attempt to enforce his views upon
a congregation given to the shotgun as
a controversial weapon,. The Kentucky
Methodists may prove to be the pioneers
in a new scheme of church unity.
Detroit Journal: Few of the small
holders of gold mine stock ever realize
anything except the loss of their money.
The mines that are any good are bought
up by rich men, who can afford to put
money Into developing schemes and
many of these fail to strike a fairly good
thing. An occasional poor man gets on
the inside and we hear all about his
splendid realization of a fortune. But
we never hear anything about the ill
lucks of the thousands who put their
hard money Into mines. The recent re
vival of the gold-flnding Industry ought
not to be checked up against the return
of prosperity. Back of it is a well
understood purpose to swindle, and those
who buy stock In ninety-nine out of a
hundred of them will simply burn their
money. Keep out of the "gold mine
cinch," even though your best friends
advise you to buy.
Springfield Republican: Somebody
writes to the New York Evening Post
from New Hampshire that he had driven
clear across the State without seeing a
beer sign or barrel or other notice of
liquor being for Bale, and "he concludes
that prohibition is a hard and fast fact
in that region. But a New Hampshire
citizen responds that under the State
law the exposure of a sign or other ad
vertisement of liquor for sale consti
tutes prima facie evidence of the com
mission of the offense of liquor selling,
and he pertinently asks whether it was
to be expected that liquor sellers would
thus provide openly the means of their
own conviotlon. It Is stated that liquor
Is sold in more than fifty places in Con
cord, and yet to all appearances the
city la as dry as dust. The case is inter
esting as showing how anybody who
keeps his eyes shut tight may be able to
see that prohibition prohibits.
New York Tribune: Sumatra comes
into the field as a producer of petro
leum, its product crowding into the mar
kets of the East In competition with that
of the American and Russian wells.
Other Islands of the Indian archipelago
also show signs of like deposits, prom
ising to afford the basis of an Oriental
Standard Qil Company to battle with
the Occidental one and its Russian rival.
But the world is wide and there is room
enough for all of them. As there are
limitless deposits of this precious sub
stance in Siberia and China, and as it
is found in varying abundance all over
the world, there is little reason to appre
hend that the supply will give out for
a long time to come. The Sumatra fields
open a new industry in that region of
the globe of widest promise, surpassing
the traffic in ivory, apes, and peacocks,
for which it was celebrated some thou
sands of years ago, or any of its more
modern lines of production.
M&thew Marshall, in New York Sun:
What all clear-sighted observers sus
pected and feared has become a cer
tainty. The victory of the gold standard
in 1896 has shown Itself to be indecisive
not only In form but also in the number
of votes by which It was achieved. Not
till the last moment, indeed, did the
Republican leaden consent in 1896 to
admit the mention of gold In the party
platform, and they explicitly avowed
their willlngneM to accept ilver as a
monetary standard ' Jointly with gold,
provided the other commercial nations
of the world would do the same. Fortu
nately the Democrats came out squarely
for the free coinage of 6llver at the ratio
of 16 to 1, "without the aid or consent
of any other nation," and thus forced
the voters to choose between the Imme
diate adoption of the silver standard and
a future adoption of It under hypo
thetical conditions. How many votes
were gained for the Republican candi
date in 1896 by the express promise of
the party to maintain the gold standard
only until and international bimetallic
agreement could be obtained, and by the
obligation it apparently assumed to ac
cept silver as soon as the effort to reach
an agreement definitely failed. It is Im
possible to say, but their number must
have been considerable. Now that the
event In view has happened, and Eu
rope, under the lead of Great Britain,
has refused to make the agreement to
the promotion of which the St. Louis
convention pledged itself, the Repub
licans must come out unequivocally,
either for silver or for gold, and If, as is
most probable, they come out for gold,
the question whether the majority of
void's will sustain them in doing so is
one which will be answered, if not by
the elections of 1S!)S, then by those of
