in securing some of the most prominent

L W. Messer, of Chicago, is well

been marked since his assuming charge
five years ago, tbe membership having in

F. H. Bent, co.lege, secretary of the
state committee, is a pleasant clear cut
speaker, and to bis wise supervision is
due the increase both in the number and

since which time tbe entire work at

At last the successor to the late John
Givin, superintendent of the Iowa divi

and W. H. Siillwell is the appointee. and
the order transferring him from the first
division west of the Missouri river to tbe
Iowa division takes effect May 1. Mr
Still well s present headquarters are at
Horton, Kan. He is spoken of here by
those who know him as a very pleasant
and agreeable gentleman, and the ap

Eeokuk Chief, is prospering is evinced in
scores of ways. The tracks are being

new coaches are being put on all the

Would it not be a movo in the right
direction if Illinois would copy from tbe
state of Iowa and simply have one direc

I suppose Lawyer Entikin, of Moline,
will be raising ihe cry of "poverty
stricken England" until that country
owns the whole of tbe United States. Of
course there are poor people in England,
and is it any wonder when we take into
consideration that England is only about
one-third the size of California, or one
fifth tbe size of Texas and bas nearly one
half tbe population of the United Sia'es.
Is it any wonder ttere are poor people
wnere tne inhabitants are sufficiently cu
merous to step on each others heels, and
where, if one person obtains a situation
be bas, as a rule, to elbow somebody else
out What will be tbe condition of this
country when it becomes as thickly pop
ulated? But are there any poor people
in this country no 7 I have no patience
with su b men as Entrikin, who will
travel all the way to England to find poor
people wben be nab such an opportunity
to feast bis eyes upon tbe same class of
people in this country. But if tbe pov
erty that exists in England is to be at
tributed to free trade, may we infer then
tbat the poverty in this country is caused
by protection? Let me put a flea in En
trikin'B.ear, and inform him tbat the bulk
of the poverty that exists in England is
trac able to misappropriated earnings.
Is it not somewbet startling when we
read of the magnitude and gigantic pro
portions of some of tbe combinations
called trusts, the sole object of which is
to control both production and prices.
And this is clone tight in the face of an
investigating committee and an attorney
general. We read of the whisky trust
which embraces somewhere about 30dis
tellery plants, of the actual cash value o f
$4 000,000, which has been capitalized at
$34 000.000, showing $7 50 of water to
every djllar of money interested in tbe
business. To limit production this trust
has closed 79 of its distilleries and oper
ates but 11. Out of the profits of these
11 distilleries the trust pays the salaries
of officers, taxes, leases, etc.. of the 79
idle plants and a dividend upon $34 000,-
000 stock, of which eight-ninths is noth
ing but water. Then there is tbe Na
tional Cordage company, better known
to farmers as tbe "twine trust." As
nearly as can be ascertained this trust is
capital zed at $23,000,000, of - which
nearly three fourths is water, and yet It
succeeds in paving handsome dividends
upon the whole amount. Then take the
great coal combine in tbe east, though
not in the fim of a trust, will have the
effect of one. This new combination
represents a share and rond capital of
$365,000,000. which will be one of the
most powerful std autocratic monopolies
in tbe whole country. What was tbe
British tyranny of tbe stamp act, and the
tax upon tea, wnich was thrown over
board in Boston harbor, when compared
to the great robbery and taxation of the
present time? Will tbe people of this
country submit to such injustice for ever?
