Political gossip has it that Yates

must be looked after first by all

that the Tanner influence will still be

GREAT DANGER TO WHICH TRUSTS
President Hadley, of Yale univer
sity, at lioston baturday night startled
a congregation largely made up of
the richest church society in Aew
England at the Old South church, by
declaring: "We shall have an em
peror within 25 years unless we can
create a public sentiment, which, re
gardless of legislation, will regulate
President Hadley delivered the third
in a course of lenten addresses in the
Old South church by college presi
dents, and his topic was "The De
velopment of a Public Conscience."
He said in part :
"How do things stand as regards
the need of a public conscience in
this country today? The American
standard of persenal morality is, on
the whole, high as compared with
other nations and other ages. We
have developed personal virtues
through individual conscience very
well. But our actions in politics and
in a social and basincss sense, prove
our moral standards in those direc
tions desperately low. There is an
appalling contrast between our
methods of dealing with each otber as
individuals and the low standard ob
served in dealings between different
parts of the whole organization of
society. Competition used to pre
vent a man from practicing great
extortion upon his neighbors,- even
if he wanted to, and in politics we
once had at least a rough form of rel
ative justice. But today, with our
industries organized into trusts ana
the imperialistic spirit developing in
politics, the general development of
the Drinciole of trusteeship will be
come appalling unless we cultivate a
higher standard oi morality tnan ever
before. Legislation will never pro
tect us from the evils of trusts, of
deteriorated politics. The essence of
a trust is that you must trust the
head of it to exercise his power wisely
or to abuse it, according to the kind
of conscience he possesses.
"Trusts have got to be regulated
by public sentiment, and that public
sentiment is not merely the opinion
of any particular part of the whole
people, but is a readiness to accept, in
behalf of the community, restrictions
independent of the question whether
you or 1 shall be personally narmea
by those restrictions. You say the
community will not be governed oy
this principle. We must expect
that the community will, however,
for the alternative is an emperor in
Washington within 25 years. Public
affairs can no longer "be played as a
game, but must be directed by an in

Hannah scarcely relished the sug

asked permission to go to Dr. Jdnes,
Her mistress rejoiced in the thought
that the agony was at last to be end

Trying; to Make Forty Dollars.
Here is a hard luck. story apropos of
efforts to make a little sum In Wall
street: A young man started with $100
and ran it up to $9,060, or $40 less than
an even $10,000. The desire to round
out the $10,000 goaded him on. He
said to his broker, "If I can make that
additional $40 on a quick turn I will
draw out my $10,000 and invest it in
real estate." It was a strong bull mar
ket, but things.appeared sky high, and
he picked out an active stock to sell
short, I think he landed on T. C. and
I., which had a phenomenal rise and
was due to drop anywhere from 10 to
00 points. He sold 100 shares at par.
intending to close it out at 09. But
instead of going down the blamed
thing soared to 120. At every three
points' gain he sold another 100 until
he was carrying all he could tote. In
24 hours he lost nearly every cent it
had taken Jilm three months to make.
With what little he had left he bought
T. I. on the recession to 11G, friends of
the Hanover National bank assuring
him that it was going to loO. Then
came the fireworks and the funeral.
The bottom fell out of the specialty
and young Dr. Knowall found himself
