Washington, D. C. Aug. I).
After the spectacular cfiect of
lining tho iStajulaixl Oil Trust near
ly thirty millions of dollars haa
subsided it "may be well to inves
tigate.' what advantago the public
will igain even if the trust ovent
fully1 has o Py tho full amount.
John' D. iRockcfeller is imported
to liavo said that: "Judge Landis
will bp .dead a long while heforo
this fine i Pid. In fiact many
things wljl happen heforo that."
But suppCflo the chief itrust mag
nafo is not a good prophet and in
tli cpurso of a year tho Circuit
atiy Supremo Court docido that tho
eriuruiauB line i legal and must bo
fiaid. Wh'cro will tho 'monoy come

and it is not quite probable that a
cent or two moro a gallon will bo
charged tho public, so that, tho
trusts stockholders can still lio
paid their 40 per cent dividend.
Tho- object of trust busting is to
reproduce competition which tho
ttmts have nearly eliminated. Com

Tho discussion of tho most avail
able presidential candidnto for tho
Democrats to nominate has received
a frefrh impetus! by the nrrivnl in
Washington ot Henntor liacon or,
Georgia. Ho declares bimself fa
vorable to a Southern man for
President uch as Senator Daniel.
Oillborbon, Cnrmack and Gray, and
dozens of othors who could be
named, All that is needed "de
clared Senator Bacon" is far one
o .them to stop out and declare
himself a candidato and the nomina
tion will bo his. "'Other Pomocrotio
leaden do not view- tho nomination
of a Southoni man with the optim
itsio complacency of f?ennlor Ba
con; thoy do not believe ithnt .tho
Democratic National Convention
will nominoto n roan .from a South
ern State unless ho is acceptable
to tho dolegates from tho close and
doubtful Northern States.
It Is pointed 'out" that during tho

Democratic celticism,, ot Mr. Dryati

(and In many Instances, It would seem
Intentionally) to recognize the dis
tinction between Mr. Hryan'H acad
emical views and those which ho es
timates as belonging In tho realm of
practical politics. 1'ho Rreat finan
cial Issue on which his flrnt battle waB
fought ho now udmlts Is a nettled
question In coi)8equenco of the enor
mous lncrea.su in tlio volume, of gold
und Inflation of the currency and
thorforo no longer debated, although
ho stll contends thut great ns has
been tho prosperity during that tlmo
In which ho predicted poverty and dis
tress, tho prosperity would have been
more general had tho doctrlues for
which ho contopded been favored by
popular vote. Within tho last two
months ho has stated to Mr. Uurko
Cochran that ho Initiative and, Ref
erendum wore not necessarily articles
or Democratic faith at this moment
and now In tho "Commoner" ho has
so seriously modified his, doctrines or
Government ownership an to put It In
to tho category or academical things
and make It Inoffensive, evon to rail
road owning Democrats. How. under
theso circumstances, tho Wall street
elemnt In tho Democratic party, can
continue to opposn him la not plain,
unles thoy admit that tho fearless
freedom of his character, his uttor
nnces and iIh uncontrollablllty are
the reol elmentp in their objections
to him. Mr. Bryan's retreat In tho
matter of Government ownership will
go very far to check tho criticism In
tho South, whatever effect It may

roads to obey the stuo law reducing
rates until the legal question Involved
havo boon decded by tho Supremo
Court Is tho most satisfactory out
come to the peoplo that has occurred
since railroad control has been at
