The trouble was extremely funny. A
large, smooth-haired, pale complexioned
dog had seen and had undertaken to in
vestlgate, a lean, dirty, white cat, pecu
liar looking by reason of its ears and tail
being black. "This strange, not to say
curious, way of wearing the only two
colors you have got, puss," began the
dog . But that was the last word. All
the rest was a succession of loud, de
spairing howls as though something had
been run over by a street-car. The cat
had gone for that wretched dog, had
clawed it heartily on the spot and then
chased it keenly across the street to the
corner of the alley, into which the dog
fled the cat gazed after it with swelled
tail, arched back and muttered curses.

The new time card which goes into ef

division of the C, B. & Q. tomorrow,
contemplates some quite important
changes. According to it, train No. 4
will in the future leave Rock Island at
7:50 p. m. instead of 8:20 for St. Louis
and run via Rio, Galesburg and Bush
nell, thus omitting all the stations on the
Rock Island and St. Louis division
between Rio and Buahnell including
Monmouth and cutting, off several miles
and also making direct connections
with the main line trains on the Burling

St. Louis at night, will run the same way,
arriving at 7:15 a. m. instead of 6:20, as
heretofore. Trains 1 and 2 will run by
way of Monmouth as usual and their ar
riving and departing time bas not been
changed. Other changes, however, are
that No. 18 will leave for St. Paul at 7:30
p. m. instead of 7:45, and No. 10, local

LEGISLATIVE REPORT ON TRUSTS.
Xw York Statesman Take Different Views
or the Subject.
Albany, N. Y., May 10. The senate com
mittee on general laws, which was instruct
ed on March 29, 188S, to investigate the sub
ject of trusts and similar combinations, has
reported the result of its inquiry. The ma
jority of the committee, comprising the Re
publican members, Arnold, CoggeghalL
O'Connor and Walker, take the ground that
trusts and similar combinations are only new
forms of the ever-present struggle for su
premacy in the iudustrial world ; that they
are not necessarily monopolies; that they
should not be interfered with by special leg
islation; that the common law an 1 existing
statutes on the subject of monopoly are suf
ficient for their treatment when tliey develop
monopolistic qualities; that at all events the
decision of Ju Ige Barrett in the sugar trust
case would seem to indicate tins, and that
legislation, even if deemed advisable, should
be deferred until the court of apeu!s has
passed upon Judge Barrett's decision.
Inclined to Think Otherwise.
The minority report, signed by Linson,
Laugbein,and Ives, the Iemcratic memlwrs.
concurs iu the opinion that at the preseut
time the common law, if Jude Barrett's de
cision be maintained, is as favorable to tbe
people as any legislation tliat could lie ob
tained at the present time. But the minority
cannot subscribe to the doctrine that these
organizations are harmless, nor that it is safe
to trust entirely to the corrective action of
time and the law of supply ami demand to
eradicate the abuses incident to such colossal
combinations of money and power. The pro
tection of the people at present may lie as
sured by the incorruptibility of the bench
and the executive branch of the government;
but if, in the future, these organizations shall
be as successful in subsidizing administrative
and judicial oflioers as they have Iwen initent
in preventing legislation against their selfish
and dangerous methods, the people will be
forced to adopt some other remedy thau the

In short time the railroad track, which is

men. As the heat increased they sought the
ditches beside the track, and face downward
attempted to survive the wild sweep of the
approaching fire. Everything at Brace's
crossing was wiped out except one small

Mince Matter at All.
N iw York, May 10. The first man to take
the witness chair before the senafe commerce
committee yesterday was President Roberts
of the Pennsylvania railway. His remarks
in brief were to the effect that since the
Uni:ed States bad begun to regulate the rail
ways by "special legislation" the Canadian
rail vays bad the advantage. He didn't know
that they were using the same, but they could
whenever they desired.
Ha couldn't see why we prohibited foreign
vest els engaging in our coasting trade while
Canadian railways were permitted to do
business in this country, and therefore be
liev sd in applying the same law to foreign
rail ays as to those owned at home. If this
did not suit said foreign roads they oould
quit business and tbe American lines would
not worry over that Ha thought that the
pro- losition was a perfectly fair one that
Canadian railways doing t business in this
con ttry should do it under tbe same laws as
the home lines.

Washington City, May 10. Tho sugges

partment might be materially increased by
utilizing the backs of postage stamps for ad
vertising purposes naturally creates a good
deal of talk. That it would be a valuable
advertising snap for the successful bidder
goes without question.
Points for and Against It.
Postmaster General Wanamaker (who is
believed to favor the scheme with some qual
ifications) is reported as saying: ''Every one
of the million that daily lick a stamp would
of necessity have to read the advertisement;
and yet the proposal has its drawbacks, so
far, at least, as tbe patrons of tbe institution
are concerned. It would not be entirely
agreeable, to be eternally reminded that you

ured, when stamping one's correspondence
at the close of the business day. to

every time he mailed a letter; while, should
the contract fall to one of the many newspa

presence of a postage stamp with its 'affida
vit editor' allegation would be a constant
source of irritation in the offices of its con-
ten lporaries. And so the inconveniences of
the system might be extended ad libitum."

Washington City, May 10. About forty

gentlemen filed past the president and shook
his hand. Jearly every one had something to

After three brenk-a ways they got off to a

and Spokane second. C'assiits was first out
of the chute, followed by Oiilboim.l, Spokane,
leading the bunch, third. VS'hen straight in

all together, close U. Barnes was unable to
properly hold the gelding as they went around

down threw him out of his stride twice.
Straightened in the back stretch, Knott was
again going smoothly in tun lc.nl by more1

the effort was too much for the former and
Hindoocraft was second ut the half, two

came in close to the rails. Knott had a lead

Spokane Goes to the Head.
Half-way down the stretch Spokruie bad
drawn abreast of Knott. Here the latter
swerved from the spur a bit, and Barnes ap
plied the v. hip correctively. Spokane was in
front by a half length at the distance stand,
and Knott, a length the best of Once Again,
was getting the lash anil responding so well
that Spokane's load was rapidly diminishing.
Then Kiley got to work with all he had, and
in a terrible finish Sokane and Proctor
Knott went under tho silken cord together,
on opposide sides of the track, a length and a
half ahead of Once Again, and the mob who
watched for the winner were unable to tell
who had won, and fell to argtiitig about it.
Won by a Short Head.
After a few minute's delay the decision
was announced, and the fastest race ever
run at the distance in the world, considering
the condition of the track, was won by Spo
kane by a short head. Once Again third,
Hindoocraft fourth, Sortsnian fifth, others

Barnes rode the lelicved-to-lic-itivincible
Proctor Knott well, but besides making his
weight with nearly twenty pounds of lead
he bail not sufficient muscular strength to
keep his mount in hand projierly. Knott
was finishing stronger than Spokane, but
Barnes had lcen working on him for the last
