(Continued From First Page.)
ployed are. first, tlie union of all In?
dividual factories under ono manage?
ment, or In one corporation, and. sec?
ond, the crushing out of new rivals. A
monopoly when once complote not only
dictutcs terms to those who buy the
product, but It also dictates terms to
those who sell the raw material and to
those who furnish the labor. If the
trusts are permitted to continue we
shall find an industrial aristocracy
growing up in tho United States which
will prove as destructive of our Ideals
as a landed aristocracy w-ould.
PRINCIPLE OF MONOPOLY.
The principle of monopoly is incom?
patible with our Institutions. Man's
necessities compel him to become a pur?
chaser, and where there is but one sell?
er the purchaser la completely at the
mercy of the seller. Where there is com?
petition between producers, the pur?
chaser Is Bure to obtain what he wants
at a reasonable price. When competi?
tion is eliminated the price is con?
trolled not by reason but by the greed
of the ono who possesses tho monopoly.
It has been said that the power ti> tax
is a power to destroy. A monopoly pos?
sesses tho power to lax; It can levy
such assessments as it will upon the
purchaser and we can no more afford to
permit such a power to be exercised by
private individuals than we could af?
ford to authorize private Individuals to
use the machinery of taxation In order
to enrich himself at the expense of his
The government would be guilty of
gross neglect If It permitted an indi?
vidual to secure a monopoly even with?
out legislative assistance, but it Is still
moro culpable, if by legislative act It
furnishes the means by which a monop?
oly Is secured. The corporation Is the
means now employed by those who seek
to secure a monopoly. Since the corpo?
ration is a hcticlous person, created by
law, the power that creates can regu?
late, restrain or annihilate. To say
that the government Is Impotent to pre?
vent the organisation of trusts is to
say that it has called into existence a
lictlelous person, and that the dctlclous
person created has become greater than
WHEN THE TRUST HIDF.S.
One of the difficulties which has been
encountered l,n opposing trusts is that
the trust hides behind the Federal Con?
stitution when attacked by State leg?
islation, and shields Itself behind its
State charter when attacked in the
Federal courts. No remedy will be
complete that it nit co-extenslve with
?the Federal government. If the extin?
guishment of the trusts Is left to Slate
legislation, the public nt large will be
victimized as long as a single State
will furnish a robber's roost where the
spoils collected in other States can be
THE PEOPLE STARTLED.
Just now people are startled by the
principle of monopoly as it manifests
itself in the industrial trust, and weli
may they be startled. The principle,
however, is the same as that which
manifests Itself In the effort of the Na?
tional bankers that secure a monopoly
of the issue of paper money.
The greenback Is a rival of the bank
note, and iis presence !s a constant me?
nace to the banks of issue. Sonic Wh i
recognize the evils that How from a
soap trust, seem indifferent to the dan?
gers that attend the formation of a
pnpqr money trust.
Tlie principle of monopoly not only
lies at the foundation of the attempt
to destroy the greenbacks, but it Is the
controlling principle that underlies the
crusade against silver as a standard
money. Between 1850 and i860, when
the production of gold was increasing,
and the production of silver was small,
three nations demonetised gold ami
gave to .-diver a monopoly of mint priv?
ileges. Early in the 70'a the ftnanclera
became alarmed at the increase in tho
production of silver, ami conspired to
destroy silver as a standard money and
give a monopoly to gold, the production
of which, at that time, was stationary.
The standard money trust io not only
the parent trust, but i.^ in the hands
REPUBLICAN PARTY IMPOTENT.
The Republican party is impotent to
destroy the trusts. It Is controlled by
those who are interested in trusts, and
its campaign funds and sinews Of war
are supplied by the trusts. The policies
for which It now stands disregard tho
interests of the producers of wealth and
give the money a consideration which
is denied to the individual.
LINCOEN S WARNIN(1.
Abraham Lincoln, in the very begin?
ning Of his Presidential care r, warned
the country against the threatened at?
tempt to.put capital above labor In the
structure of the government. Modern
Republicanism is fulfilling the prophecy
made by Lincoln, it is putting the dol?
lar above the man.
The Democratic party Is opposed to
the principle of monopoly wherever it
manifests itself. It has declared war on

THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY
CONTINUES TO LEGISLATE ON IM?
(By Telegraph to Virginian-Pilot.)
Richmond, Va., May 25.?At the
morning session of the Presbyterian
General Assembly, the following, offered
by Dr. Kerr, of this city, was docketed
for further discussion:
"The General Assembly takes occa?
sion to expresn Its strongest condem?
nation of the lawless spirit abroad in
the land, manifesting Itself In many
ways, but notably in scenes of mob
violence and the taking of human life
in cases of supposed or proven crime,
without due process of law. Involving
the awful danger of indicting death
upon an Innocent person, while the real
criminal goes free; tending also t<>
cheapen human life, to unsettle the
social order, and to weaken or destroy
that reverence lor law and constituted
authority winch the scriptures require
all to uphold.
"We. therefore, urge all our people
and ministers, in till scriptural ways,
to do their utmost toward cultivating
and maintaining that order and rever?
ence for authority (whioh are enjoined
by the word of God."
RECORDS FROM TEXAS.
The Standing Committee on publica?
tion recommended the approval of the
publication of reports, which was done.
The Committee on the it- cords <>t the
Synod of Texas were very humorously
presented and criticised by Chairman
Cralg. The report created much laugh?
ter, but at Its close Mr. Weaver, of
Texas, moved that it should hi; recom?
mitted as contrary to the dignity of the
body. It was submitted, he said, in a
spirit of clownlshness, such us ought
not to be permitted to creep into the
report 'if a body of the dignity of the
General Assembly. The motion was vo?
ted down, being supported only by Mr.
Weaver and four other members. The
report was then adopted, after being
amended in some few particulars.
The Assembly adopted the recommen?
dations of the Committee on Overtures,
that In cases of emergency, the Modera?
tor can call a meeting of a Presbytery
without the concurrence of two minis?
ters or two elders.
OBSERVANCE OF HOLY DAYS.
The reply of the committee to the
overture from the Presbytery of Ath?
ens, that there Is no warrant for the
observance of Christmas aid Easter as
holy days, was adopted unanimously.
Tho Assembly concurred In the rec?
ommendation of the committee, that
alternates may take- the place of prin?
cipals, or vice versa, after a church
court has been constituted, and one or
other has taken part in the proceed?
DANCING AND CARD PLAYING.
The recommendation that in view of
th.' former deliverances on tho subject,
the Assembly should not Issue a pas?
toral on tho subject of dancing, card
playing and theatre going, and the
growth of ungodliness, was met with
an amendment proposed by Mr. Auld,
of Florida, lie cited cases where
"ruin and trouble" hud come as a re?
sult of dancing, and he urged the As?
sembly to issue a new address on the
subject, in answer to the overture of
Fa yet teville Pr esby tery.
After a long debate, the ponding
question was called, and Mr. Auld'a
substitute was adopted. A further
motion to amend tho amendment in

Price, so ns to Include strlotures upon

Atlanta Constitution: The Washing?
ton Post in beginning to regard the in iv
developments in tho effort of the Navy
Department to belittle Schley and make
a hero of Sampson as something tragic,
and, Indeed, they would be more than
serious if the officials who arc con?
trolled by Sampson had any means ot
obscuring well-known facts., But that
is n matter in which they tire power?
less. The facts regarding the destruc?
tion of Ccrvcra's squadron were known
a few hours after they occurred; they
were published broadcast in every
newspaper in the land, and they have
since been certified to by ail whose tes?
timony is of any value' whatever. Con?
sequently, nothing that can be done to
cover them up by those who desire to
make Sampson the hero of the occa?
sion, though be was miles away, wilt
avaij anything. What astonishes the
Post, however?and It certainly i.s as?
tonishing?is tile fact that the edit >r

Till': TRUST PUZZLE.
The twisting, squirming, cud ma
noouvcring of politicians to avoid the
odium of trusts and take advantage of
the unpopularity of the enormous com?
binations recently formed furnish a
subject for serious thought. There is
no d iubt.th.it all parlies in the next
natl mal campaign will adopt platforms
violently against trusts. The Republi?
can party will be so vindictive in Its
language against those institutions thai
no other party can exceed its violent
abuse. The question to be Solved is:
Will the people ever lind out who is
responsible for trusts? The gold stand?
ard is the father of all trusts because
gold standard contraction creates fall?
ing prices which make it necessary for
business men to combine to save them?
selves from bankruptcy. Who is re?
sponsible Iiir tin- gold standard, the
party led by McKlpley or the party led
by Bryan? Every trust organisation
in the United States will contribute Its
money and its Influence to eject th.- Ite?
publican candidate. Will that fact sat-;
I Isfy thi- pe.ip'.e tii.it the Republic an
party Is the party responsible for
trusts? Why should every trust In tit -
United States be Republican, from the
gold combination down to the manu?
facturers of matches? if the Ameri?

have no difficulty iti finding out which

The depressing effect of the sold

is such that only an extraordinary con-*

It seems as though Providence, seeing

wise money system, would have sent
a most wonderful Hoodtlde of pros?

is, it has (simply arrested the fail o_f
prices for the moment by adding
slightly to our gold currency. The
bnlk of the vast sum duo us was Uent
back to be paid on our foreign lndel/t
cdness that has been doubled under

been our financial condition if, instead^
