Now it appears that Spain is hav
ing trouble with a meat trust. It
was found necessary in Madrid to
issue a royal order directing that re-
forms be instituted in the slaughter
bouses. Such abuses as monopolies
and aombinations formed with the
purpose of extorting illegal profits
have for some time been apparent
in all of the larger cities of the pen
insula. In 4uequence of the hard
times, civil strife and the beef trust
the average price of beef t-day in
Spain is 33 cents a pound. It re
mains to be seen whether a royal
order will have more effect on a
Spanish trust than federal and state
law have thus far had on American
. Now that Alfonso XIII., at the
beginning of his seventeenth year.
has sworn to maintain the constitu
tion of Spain, he is entitled to ex
ercise the full prerogatives of
Spanish sovereign, thus termina
ting the regency of his mother.
which has continued since r6S5
King Alfonso is not the first ruler
of Spain to be intrusted with the
reins of government at ss aly an
age iving rerainand lv. was
proclaimed of age at fourteen
years old, while King Alfonso VIII,
attained bis majority at the age of
eleven. King James II. was de
clared of age when only seven and
ruled without a regent; at any rate,
it was pretended that he ruled.
As the question raised in the
beef trust litigation is an inter
state contention, it is practically
settled in advance that the decis
ion of the Missouri supreme court
will not be the final settlement of
the case. Under such circumstan
ces it is impossible to forecast the
action of the Missouri court, be
cause any decision it makes will
be based on law and not on poll
tics, and when the court follows
the line of law and not she line of
politics, it is sot so easy to tell
where it will come out, for the
reason that courts which use both
law and politics usually know
more politics than law. Mo. State

The people of Rich Hill remem
ber that only a few years ago one
of our large coal companies surren
dered their incorporation In Mis
souri and went directly to Tope k a
and reincorporated under the laws
of Kansas, for the reported reason
that the laws of Kansas were more
favoiable to their interests than the
laws of the state of Missouri.
At the time of the great south
west railroad strike among the rail
road employees, it was found by the
laborers that the laws of Kansas
were far more favorable to them
than the laws of the state of Mis
souri. The only way to put Missouri
alongside the most enterprising and
progressive states of the union is to
put in power a party that believes,
and acts upon the belief, that serv
ing the best interests of the state is
serving ti.8 best jnterests of the par
ty, and putting out of povyrr the
party that believes, and acts cn the
belief, that to pass laws to secure
the party in power, right or w rong,
is serving the best interests of the
state. The result of such action 011
the part of the people will be the
triumph of tne Republican party in
this state and the overwhelming de
feat ot the Democratic party. This
will put tne legislation of the state
alsng in line with the legislation of
the national government and help
the miner, the farmer, the mechanic
and the merchant, so that the pay
ment of their taxes will become a
source of profit rather than a burden.

to that section. Manitoba and
