The Democratic precinct meetings
Saturday afternoon passed off quietly.
Mason County Democrats are unani
mous for Jam.es N. Kehoe, and his nom
ination by acclamation at Catlettsburg
Wednesday is already assured. The
county convention meets at 2 o'clock
this afternoon at the court house to se
lect delegates to the Catlettsburg con
vention. Hasna's defenses of the trusts is be
coming so open and bold that it is alarm
ing many leading Republicans. The
Philadelphia Ledger, a Republican paper,
no doubt voices the sentiment of many
when it says:
No matter how admiringly Mr. Hanna
may regard those monopolistic combina
tions in restraint of trade the trusts a
very groat proportion of the people have
not only no admiration for them, but
unqualifiedly condemn and denounce
them as inimical to public policy and in
contravention of sound Republican prin
ciples: as concerns dangerous to our
political and economic institutions.
Although the last national platform
condemned the trusts, and although the
next one is expected to present an even
more vigorous condemnation of them as
public enemies, the National Chairman
lias seen fit to persistently and aggres
sively defend and uphold them ; to make
himself, in fact, their most conspicuous
It is indisputable that b'enator Hanna
is not a popular political idol ; that many
Republicans distrust him, his policies
and methods, and especially do they view
with disfavor his real or supposed domi
nating influence over the administration.
If the New York Sun isn't careful, Re
publicans will "read it out of the party."
Speaking of the proposed sixteenth
amendment to the Federal Constitution,
which would confer upon Congress
"power to define, regulate, control, pro
hibit or dissolve trusts, monopolies or
combinationswhether existing in the
form of a corporation or otherwise," the
When we say plainly that this is the
most dishonest and therefore the most
discreditable piece of work achieved dur
ing the present session by the leaders of
Republican policy in the House, we are
not speaking of the merits of the pro
posed amendment. Its revolutionary
character, the sweeping change it would
eilect in the entire system of our institu
tions, the bestowal upon Congress of an
unlimited and arbitrary power over all
private business in all the States and
without regard of State lines or State
rights, need not even be discussed. There
is no more prospect ol its adoption by a
two-thirds vote of both House and Sen
ate and of its ratification by the Legisla
ture of the three-fourths of the forty-five
States than there is of the adoption of a
constitutional amendment vesting in the
Federal Government the direct manage
ment of all the myriad industries of this
The dishonesty of the performance lies
in the fact that there was no expectation
on the part of the author of this resolu
tion, or of the Republicans on the Judi
ciary Committee who favorably reported
it, or of the Republicans in the'House
who were willing to vote for it, that the
proposed sixteenth amendment will ever
amount to more than a campaign trick
of the cheapest and unworthiest descrip
tion. It is buncome politics of the same
sort as the Hon. James D. Richardson's
4 per centum resolutions. It is equally
deserving of the contempt of all citizns
who value a great party's reputation for
Rincerity of purpose, or hold that go id
faith is a matter of consequence in the
individuals intrusted with the responsi
bilities nf political leadership.

ports from various sections say that
heavy losses have occurred to farmers.

Speaking of the wheat outlook in Kan

.over the wheat belt recently, and the
prospects could not be finer. The.'mil

and there is much activity displayed by
the farmers in securing help'

of an annual average crop, but the per
centage of tho whole country is esti
mated at 83, or from 550,000,000 to 025,

supply of breadstuff and much to spare.
