The move of the government
apainst the Smelter Trust comes
nearer being a surprise than
anythingtclse thnt has happened
in trust busting circles for some
time. Of course, everyone who
knew anything about the trust
situation knew the Smelter
Trust needed investigation, but
there had been no intimation that
probably an unintentional omi8-Jtlcr0 wa, an investigation on
sion. f.xit. and that is rather rare in
the case of government sleuth
work. The Smelter Trust is the
reation of the Guggenheim fam-
ly, one of the younger brothers
t the firm having recently been
elected to succeed Senator Pat
terson, of Colorado in the United
States Senate. It is a very pow-
rful combination, all of the
brothers who are parties to the
concern being multi-millionaires.
t controls practically all of the
smelting business of the United
States and reaches down into
Mexico, where the bulk of the
mines have the choice of selling
their ore to the trust or keeping
it on the dump. It is not & par
ticularly grasping corporation as
such monopolies go. It merely
forces the railroads to give it re
bates and it crushes all smaller
concerns out of business. There
are no larger concerns for , it to
fight, and it follows mach the
methods of the Standard Oil Co.
n keeping spies on its enemies.
When the prosecution is brought
against it by the government, it
probably will be under the Sher
man Anti-Trust law, for the
Smelter Trust has violated that
law in every possible direction.
People in the East do not uder-
stand as a rule how thoroughly
the trust has its grasp on the
whole of the ore mining industry
of the west, and how thoroughly
it is hated. But the prosecution
is apt to bring out a good many
facts that will make interesting
reading. It is not likely that the
trust will be mucheaner tograp
pie wilh than the Standard Oil
Co., for it is almost as rich and
powerful It has been a long
time getting around to the point
of being investigated, and possi-
b!ytlie belated move of the gov
ernment may have had some con
nection with the fact that the
Trust in the past year took two
of the very good and much un
derpaid members of the Geologi
cal Survey out of the service of
the government and employed
them in mininir work at from
four to five times the salary that
the government has been paying
them. Worms (even the United
States) are long suffering, but
they will turn sometimes.

There has been a lot of talk in
tlio past week over the report
that the government was going
to send a large section of the
battle ship squadron from the
Atlantic to the Pacific Coast to
strengthen the naval arm there
and be ready for any agression
on the pari of the Japanese.
There is just truth enough in
this story to make it interesting.
The immediate reply of the Navy
Department was that the atory
was made out of the whole cloth.
Thii might have been good
enough for lay consumption, cx
cept for the fact that the depart
ment admitted that the battle
ships were going. IJut it ex
plained that the arrangement
for their departure had been
made years ago, and that the
government had been waiting to
make the move only till we had
enough ships to spare sotne more
for the Pacific Coast. This was
true enough in a way, but we
have not added any battleships
to the Navy in the past few
weeks, end the move would not
have been made now except for
the fact that the Japanese situa
tion has been strained enough to
warrant consideration, if nothing
more. No fleet that we could
spare for Paciliic ttervicu Just

To Drill for Water.
The big drill lias been put in
operation just north of the elec
tric light plant with the expecta
tions af striking an abundant
flow of water. The drillers are
the men who got artesian water
for the Krieger-Klumpp Ice
Plant and it is thought they will
be successful in this attempt.
The water now being used for
drinking purposes is very muddy
and unfit for use. From all ap-
jearances no effort is made to
purify it at the water works sta
tion. iiio water mains were
emptied Tuesday and it would be
safe to say the water contuined a
greater portion of mud. It is
