President M Kinley will in bis

not hereafter be termed a party issue,

ple will doubtless prepare themselves
Altiiol;ii termed purely a family
affair, the visit of a resoectfal grand
son to his aged and most distinguished
relative, the presence in England at
this time of Emperor William is said
in Europe to have its political signili-
cance, and there is much more feeling
over the circumstance in Berlin tbau
there is in London.
The St. Paul Globe calls attention
to the fact that the lesson of the
American tin trust shows clearly the
absolute interdependence of the two
huge industrial evils, the trusts and
the protective tariff, and adds that if
we are ever to bring the trusts under
public control we must begin serious
operations by uprooting the entire
protectionist system, which is at once
their origin and bulwark.
The milk trust in the cast must be
a cheerful thing to the farmer. It
has advanced its prices to the con
sumers in eastern cities four times in
the last month. The latest raise will
increase its income about f 1,500 a
dav. There is no record of its having
raised the prices to the individual
farmer, from whom it buvs milk
But then neither the farmer nor the
consumer belong to a trust. Why
should they expect to share in this
kind of prosperity.
Thi Boston Herald says: "We
learn from Kansas that the little city
of Beattie, which last spring elected a
municipal government of women, is
eniovinir unusual prosperity. Streets
are kept clean, sidewalks repaired,
laws enforced and municipal affairs
administered with an economy un
known before. One of the council
women gives it as her testimony that
politics is the best cure for rheuma
tism, blie suffered terribly irom tnis

There is something peculiarly
sad in the fact that in so short u
space of time itjcould be possible in
the course of human events for any
condition to have occurred as to

that humanity is tickle, that man at

In the short space of three years since

Bisiior Galiok (Episcopal), of Ten
nessee, tells the following story at his
own expense: One day when tramp
ing through rural Tennessee he came
up to a typical cracker, whittling in
front of bis cabin, and introduced
himself. After a few moments' silence
the cracker shifted his tobacco quid
to a corner of bis mouth, glanced out
of a corner of his eye, and then said,
with deliberation: "Wall, stranger;

we don't know much about them fel

he prayed. He was a big. powerful
fellow, like yourself, parson, six feet
tall and nigh as big 'round. He had
lungs that made the mounting shake
when he hollered. I listened to his
sermon, or what be called a sermon,
and then hern him pray. He got
sorter hysterical like, I reckon, and in
his prayer he kept yellin', 'O God,

us power.' I sed to Sue, 'I reckon

Knights of Labor anil TruHts.
The recent sessions of the general
assembly of the Knights of Libor held
in Boston would seem to indicate the
attitude of labor unions in opposition
to trusts, and the following extract
from the report submitted at that
meeting by General Master Workman
John N. Parsons clinches this argu
ment: "During the coming year the coun
try will be again excited over the
issues that will arise in the contest
that will be wagei for the control of
the affairs of this country for the suc
ceeding four years. Perhaps the most
important of these will be the trusts,
for who has not observed the progress
they are making, and who will con
tend that they carry any charm for
the wage worker? The concentration
of wealth as employed in the indus
tries of our country has made many
strikes during the last few years.
which have resulted to the working-
men's detriment wherever such com
binations have been effected. How to
meet it is a question that should be
given your carelul consideration.
