It's up to President Roosevelt to
trv, at least, to stop the anthracite
strike. Will he do it?
President Roosevelt is reported to
be a great fighter, but it is wonderful
how he can continue to fire at the
trusts and vet do them so little in
President Roosevelt's idea of let
ting the tariff alone while .pretend
ing to fight the monopolizing trusts

The Wisconsin supreme court has
decided that a dealer who is caught
between favored trusts and combina
tions formed to monopolize trade
and drive him from his legitimate
business can recover civil damages
against the conspirators. The decis
ion Mas made in the case of a coal
dealer who was outside of a combi
nation of operators and wholesalers
and whose business was practically
destroyed through the persistence of
the alliance. The -decision appears
to be another link in the chain which
may yet be forged to control the
The war department has promul
gated the following executive order
to General Miles - in Washington:
"You 'will proceed about Sept. 15, to
the Philippines, to 'inspect the army
there in reference to instruction,
discipline and supplies." The order
is signed - by the - president, and is
generally commented upon as being
designed - to relieve the administra
tion -of 'Miles' presence in Washing
ton during the U.'A. R. - encampment.
Some embarrassment has been caus
ed by the declared intention of the
veterans to heap distinguished hon
ors upon the lieutenant general.
General Grosvenor, one of the ad
ministration leaders, said before the
congressional convention which re
nominated him in his Ohio district,
that the republican party was to be
the sole judge of where the tariff
should be revised, and that it will be
revised when, the "proper time"
comes. That "proper time" will
never come however. Secretary
Shaw himself admits that the party
is afraid to tackle the tariff question
saj-ing that if it would pull out one
of the unjust schedules which he
admits exists, the beneficiaries of
that schedule would pull down the
whole structure on their heads. Not
until these beneficiaries cease to
hold the hand of the republican
party will the tariff be revised by that
party, and that will be, never!
The Presidential Platitude.
New York World: When President
" Roosevelt shall get well warmed up
to his circle-swinging. oratory-it is
to be hoped that he will deal less
with platitudes. Generalities, wheth
er glittering or dull, are not what
the people "expect from . sp strenuous
The president said yesterday at
Williamantic that "if when people wax
fat they kick; as they have been
prone to do since the days of Jesh
urun, tney.will speedily destroy their
own prosper-." But it is not the
people who are waxing fat that are
doing the kicking now; it is those
who are waxing lean under monopoly
prices for coal, meat and most of
the necessaries of life; with no cor
responding advance in wages and sal
The wicked who prosper are never
a pleasant sight," sagely observes the
president. But who are the wicked?
Des he refer to the coal magnates
who are doling out anthraeitent $12
per ton and doing nothing to end the
strike? Or does he mean the mem
bers of the beef combine, who have
raised food prices out of reach of the
poor? And what does he propose to
do to cure these "evils which stand
out with ugly boldness" and to pun
ish those whose wicked prosperity is
"not a pleasant sight?"
He does not say. He simply de
clares that "we may like it. or not.
just as we please," but that "the very
great increase of large ' private and
especially of large corporate for
tunes" is "an inevitable result of the
work of various causes." Well, the
people of this country are rapidly
coming to the conclusion that such
obvious and unjust aids to the in
crease of these fortunes as are con
tained in our tariff and corporation
laws must be eliminated in the in
terest of "equal rights to all, special
favors to none." When Mr. Roose
velt "gets down to business" in his
speeches will he say what he thinks
of this? His advocacy of pub
licity for the affairs of trusts is good
as far as is goes, but it does not go

and it is hinted that already jeal
ousies have arisen between some of
the genernls and the civilian repre

DeWet there are likely to be differ

to scope of authority, future handl

It is sincerely to be hoped that
these stories are without foundation

WHAT THE STRIKE IS ABOUT.
These are the differences between
miners who are on a strike:.
TUG OPERATORS COXTEXO.
First That there is no possi
ble scale that would apply to all
anthracite coal mines, as each
one. is a problem of itself, and
subject, therefore, to an indivi
dual scale of wages.
Second That all questions
must be settled between the mi
ners and their immediate super
intendent. Third That miners have no
right to refuse to work with non
union men, as the right to labor
is inalienable, and the companies
cannot be a party to any agree

or hamper this right.
Fourth That the operators

DAILY SHORT STORY
A Sacred Trust.
A ma:i who will not respect a
brother officer In his domestic rela
tions." said Lieutenant Pickering of
the United States urtillery, "deserves
to Tk? cut."
"Pickering, when you are thrown ex
clusively into the society of your
friend's wife, look out for your honor.
A bugle call sounded, and Lieuten
ants Pickering and Frogmore arose
ud started for the parade ground.
A year later, the two men having
meanwhile served at different forts.
Frogmore came out of n railroad car
that was Just ultout to leave when he
met Pickering getting In.
"Any objection to taking care of o
"Not the least. A relation of yours?"
"Yes. Get in, put down your traps.
and I'll introduce you."
Pickering stowed away his belong
ings, then was introduced.
Nancy, this is one of my best
friends, Mr. Pickering of the artillery
corps. l'lcK, oui noy, tins is my wne.
I'm' going to Intrust her to your charge.
Don't let her got away with you."
Pickering looked astonished, while
the lady greeted hlui with n pair of
merry eyes and a smile Hanked by
dimples. ., , .,
"Why, Frog, I didu t know you were
"Secret. Old man ready to shoot mo
on sight. You're the only living being
who knows it. Seriously, old fellow.
I know you'll be good to her. Take
care of yourself. Goodby. Nan." And,
kissing the lady affectionately, he hur
ried from the car.
What passed between Pickering and
Nancy Frogmore was n secret which
Flekerlng at least kept secret. He cer
tainly did not run away with his
brother officer's wife. Nevertheless
not long after this journey he was hor
rified to receive an order to report at
port . his horror coming from the
fact that Frogmore was on duty at the
same fort. Pickering used every Influ
ence to secure a change of the order,
but failed. He was obliged to go to
Fort and meet his old friend Frog
more and, what was as embarrassing.
Frogmore's wife. He was carrying a
gripsack across the parade when whom
should he meet but Frogmore himself.
"Old man," said the latter, grasping
his hand warmly, "I'm glad to see you.
Of course you're hungry. Don't go
to the mess for dinner. Come to my
quarters. Nan is there, She II be de
lighted to see you."
"But I'm black with engine dust.
said Pickering, with n seared look.
"Never mind that. I'll give you a
place to fix up In. Come along. We
dine In ten minutes."
The two went to Frogmore's quar
ters, where, after Pickering had re
moved the outer coating of dust, they
went down to the dining room. Nancy
Frogmore ndvairced cordially, offering
Pickering her-hand, which the latter
took and, after shaking It nervously,
dropped all of a sudden. Nancy
blushed a little, but Pickering was sur
prised, after all that had occurred, that
she showed no well defined qualms of
conscience. The three sat down to
dinner, and' the Frogmores were so
hospitable, so Jolly, that Pickering
would have forgotten his intentional

head of the house had not Frogmore's
friendliness and trustfulness over
powered him with shame. However,
he was getting on pretty well when
suddenly, Frogmore blurted:
"I say, Pick, have you kept your con
science clear with brother officers'
Flekerlng looked as though he had re
ceived a bullet In his heart.
"Now, Bob" began the lady.
"Don't Bob me. I proiwse to have
the thing out right here. rick, confid

charge for a Journey. Before it was
concluded you consented to run away
. "Bob, you promised me"
"Now, I want you to understand thut
a breach of honor like this would draw
dowu on you a cut from the whole
army. Either you give me satisfaction
or I let the secret out to this garrison."

"Yes. I am," said Pickering, goaded

The servant hurried out and returned

Hon. Joseph B. Crowley, Congressman from Illinois, writes
from Robinson, 111., the following praise for the great catarrhal tonic,
Peruna. Congressman Crowley says :
"After giving Peruna a fair
your remedy to anyone suffering with coughs, colds and la grippe,
and all catarrhal complaints.
fMrs. Crowley has taken a number of bottles of Peruna on
account of nervous troubles. It has proven a strong tonic and last
ing cure. I can cheerfully recommend it." J. B. CROWLEY.
No other remedy invented by man has
ever received as much praise from men
of high station as Peruna. Over forty
members of Congress have tried it and
recommended it to suffering humanity.
They use it themselves to guard against
the effects of the intense strain of public
life; to ward off the ill effects of the
changeable . climate of Washington.
They keep It in their homes for family
use. They recommend it to their neigh
bors, and they do not hesitate in public
print to declare their appreciation and
endorsement of this greatest of modern
