New York, Dec. 30. The World

kucvru as trusts. A represenintiye
of the Dominion government basj
arrired in this 0117 to confer with
representatives of several of the
largwt companies having their
main office in Ner Yorki
Proposed anti-trust legislation
nd the rapid spread of the tnti-
trust.spirit is mainly responsible!
tor ima iiioveijjeni wiwaru u-niiaua.
The idea is probably the broadest
and thi boldest ever conceived by
the corporation interests. It is r tat
ed they have long since deypaned
of obtaining favorable treatment
through the enactment of Federal
laws for the reason it wonld be
necessary to amend the Constitu
tion of the United Slates before
this could be done.
If they go to Canada-, hotvever,
and organize themselves under
British laws, they will enjoy what
is practically national existence
under the color of British charters
Individuals who are citiieus of the
United States would become by
ftr.ch incorporation at least partial
Bnbjects of the British crown.
They personally would not be
British subjects, but their corpora
tions would enjoy the privileges
of British subjects.
frhe tnist people declare that
they are now harrassed and subject
ed to petty annoyances in various
States. They assert that by obtain
ing national charters from the
Canadian" government they would
free themselves from State inter
ference and could be sued in this
.country only through the United
MILES' HARD LINES;
General's Relations With the War
Washington, D. C, Dec. 30.
Gn. Miles has practically severed
all bnt the most perfuufctory rela
tions between himself and the Sec
retary of War.
It is a notorious fact at the War
Department that Gen. Miles is re-
ceiving -no more recognition at the
hands of Secretary Root than he

that the lieuteuauts appointed from
civil life did not show capacity

Miles recommended that the grad
uating class of West Point be giv
en commissions at ouce in order to
fill about seventy vacancies which,
how exist in the rank of second
This would have givsn the army
a lot of experienced and trained
young officers. Secretary Root,
however, turned down Gen. Miles'
scheme and announced that the
vacancies wourd be filled by ap
pointments from civil Ufa.

14 Well, I don't as a rule, but this
was peculiar. Seriously, I did
save that young man from going
to the dogs through drink. It
happened in this way. He is fi
tiptop fellow, and lias no end of
ability, but four or five years ago
he began to let red liquor get the
best of him, lie had a fine position
at the timp, and I don't think he
exactij neglected his workj but i$
got to De a common thing to su
mm standing around barrooms
in the evening, about two-third:
full and talking foolish. A few
of his close frieuds took thi liberty
of giving him a quit ehint, ananas
usual in such cases, he got highly
indignant and denied point blank
that he had ever been in the least
under the influence. All the same,
he kept increasing the pase until
it became pretty easy to predict
where he was going, to laud, and
it was ihat stage of the game I did
my reformation &2t. I was sitting
in a restauraut one evening wheD
he came in with some fellow and
took the next table, without seing
me. He was just drunk enough to
be talkative about his private
affairs, and on the impulse of the
moment I pnlled out ray steno
grapher's notebook aud- took a
full shorthand report of every
word he said. It was the usual
maudlin rot of your good fellow
half-seasover, shading off in spots
to boozy pathosj where both
gentlemen wept in their beer,
and including numerous highly!
candid details of the sneaker's
daily life. Next morning I copied
the whose thing neatly on the
typewriter and sent it around to
his office; In less than ten mizfates
he catne tearing in, wiih bis eyes
fairly hanging out of fchsir sockets.
'Greafc heavens! Charley !' he
gasped, 'what ia this, anyhow V
It's a stenographic report of yoiu
monologue at a'lasi evening.'
I replied, and gave him i
brief explanation. 'Did I reaIIypresngJij;
iaiir like that?' he asiceel raintly. 'I
assure you it is an aosohtteer-ja

day to this he hasn't taken adrinfc. !
