Senatou Carter, of Montana,
walked down the isle of the senate
arm in arm with Mr. Clark, member
elect from that state, when tbe latter
appeared to take the oath of oilier.
Then he tiled a protest against Mr.
Clark's title to the seat on the ground
that his election was procured by
improper methods. They Sena
tor Carter and Senator Clark went out
and took lunch together. All ct

Congressmen and the Trunin.
If it is true, as rumored, that tbe
republican senate industrial commis
sion, of which Senator Kyle is chair
man, will report that trusts are not
detrimental to the people's interests,
there is not a man in the United States
who is so ignorant as not to know
that declaration is a lie. No one of or
dinary intelligence believes anything
of the kind or believes that the com
mission believes it. Nor is it because
the constituents of congressmen are
favorable to trusts. They are not.
The grea"; majority of people ara op
posed to trusts and would gladly see
Any man, says the Indianapolis
bentiuel, not directly or Indirectly in
the pay of a trust, would le a simple

They hurt him personally and they
hurt the country. Hundreds ot men
would refus3 to vote for a legislator
who was favorable to trusts if it were
not for party pressure. The congress
man who favors trusts does so know
ing that his constituents do not favor
them, and if tbev reelect him it will
be in spite of his action, and not in
consequence of it. The people are not
in favor of trusts.
McKinley Trust I'alaver.
What a ridiculous farce it is for
President McKinley to recommend to
congress the passage cf stringent laws
for the restriction of trusts.
Mr. McKinley knows that both b
and the members of congress const!
luting the majority of that body are
tbe lenelieianes tI trust combinations
to Hanna's boodle campaign fund
Mr. McKnlev knows that the partv
in rower does not dare to interfere
with the gigantic jobbery in which the
trusts are reveling
Mr. McKinley knows that more
trusts were organized under his ad
ministration than under all other ad
ministrations combined. More than
tbis, Mr. McKinlev knows that there
is a compact rivitei with bolts of steel
between the trusts and his political
manager. Marcus A. llano. Iy wbicb
these great combines are to leap tbe
reward of their munificent contribui

these amendments having been
framed by a committee of congress
and composed wholly of republicans,
they may be accepted as a declaration
of that party that it will go. before the
country next year lairly and squarely
for tbe gold standard, for the elimina
tion of silver and the retirement of
the greenbacks. It is well known i
that Senator Chandler and other lead
ers, and even Mr. McKinley himself,
believe it would be the worst kind of
politics to force these issues upon the
party next year, but Wall street is
impatient to have tbe necessary legis
lation to tighten its grip on the cir
culating money medium of the coun
try, and Wall street must be obeyed.

Judge Scott of Omaha Summons Batch of
Omaha, Neb.. Iee. 10. Jude Scott
is finishing up bis term on the district
bench.-" with a brilliant display of lesal
pyrotechnics and contempt cases. The
lirst thing in the nioruiU!; he cited
l'rauk Harris of the Chicago Wreck
ing company, which is tearing down
the exposition buildings, for contempt
for dismantling a building in the face
of an injunction. With this for it
starter he took up the Dodd halens
corpus case. Judge M. It. Hopewell,
who preceded Seott on the equity
liench. was first cited and a deputy
sheriff sent after him. The charge
against Hopewell is that he advised
bis client, who has one of the children
in controversy in his keeping, to pay
no attention to Scott's order to pro
duce it in court. The other parties
wanted are persons who are alleged to
e concealing the children and keep
ing them out of the reach of the sher
iff. In all there are nine "persons in
volved in the proceedings, but ouly
the two preachers already lined have
been brought into court.

Yes, August Flower still has the
largest sale of any medicine in the
civilized world. Your mothers and
grandmothers never thought of using
anything else for indigestion or bil
iousness. Doctors were scarce, and
they seldom 'heard of appendicitis,
nervous prostration or heart failure,
etc. They used August Flow
er to clean out the system and stop
fermentation of undigested food, reg
ulate the action of the liver, stimulate
the nervous and organic action of the
system, andtbat is all they took when
feeling dull and bad with headaches
and other aches. You only need a
few doses of Green's August Flower,
in liquid form, to make you satisfied
there is nothing serious tbe matter
with you. Sample bottles free at T. II.
Many have lost confidence and hope

guaranteed remedy for the discour
