seem to do well where there Is dy-
Thc Modern Woodmen Kates.
The tMiro In the battlo that haa
beon raj1ng1n tho Modern Woodmen
of America over the matter of rates
wilt be welcome to both sales of the
controversy Tho head officers of
this great organization fell Justified
In their efforts nl establishing a new
schedule of rates. Tho membership
was uncertain as to the wisdom of
thfc course, and a very largo nunibor
coon, found thomselves arrayed In
active opposition to the policy of the
officers. The agitation, which has
gone on for .a year, at one time was
of such temper and proportions as
threatened the disruption-of the or
panlrntlon. At least 200,000, or al
most one-fifth of tho total member
ship, dropped out bccaiibc of. the now
rates, feeling a great. Injustice waa
to he perpetrated In lliolr enforce
ment, w.hllo many more worn actively
engaged in tho "Insurgent" move
ment within tho order to prevent tho
fnrreaso going Into offect.
Tills serious rondltlon has now
boon mot by iictlon of several courts,
notably that of Illinois Ifsulng rc
tUraihlnK orders to hold up the rates
until ahother meeting of the head
camp, at which tho subject will havo
further consideration. Tho solution,
while not final, is In tho nature of a
victory for .tho insurgonts, and Is In
hooping with tho democratic spirit
of the organization. It would have
liecu a misfortune to have had so
groat an Institution as tho Modern
Woodmen of America go to pieces,
and iho truce provided by the courts
will doubtless be well used by both
sides In 'reaching a settlement that
will bo, permanent.
The Railroad Merger Decision.
The supreme court's decision dis
solving the Union Pacific-Southern
Pacific merger cniphufllr.es tho effi
cacy of tho Shcrmn ahtl-triiHl law,
and apparently gives hew Hcopo and
power to. Its application. Tho ruling
rests directly upon the conclusion
"tW the combination of" theso rail
roads was In restraint of competition
ns defined In this law. That ought
to scttlo nny question ns to tho vi
tality or potency of the Sherman
in June, iKii, when the merger
was uphold by tho circuit court, Tho
nee maintained that tho original de
sign in the building of theso rondo
was for a fdnglo transcontinental lino
from Omaha to the Pnclflc coaBt
Under a unified ownership and opor
atlou, forming essentially one con
tlnuous lino of track. This pr'lnclplo
ovldently Is rccoghlzod In .Ujo final
decision, as It was In that of tho
lower court, nnd It nhould bo safo
guarded and maintained by what
over plan of segregation tho court
Tho decision oxpllcltly permits tho
pttrohaae by the Union Pacific of that
link of tho. Southern Pacific for
merly tho Central Pncjflc, from
Ogden to Ban Kranclsco, which goes
to comploto tha Ovorland's transcon
tinental route. It also allows mora
ownership In the San Pedro line. Tho
line that must bo separately con
tinued, as a competitor with tho
Union Pacific is tho Southern Paclflo
from New Orleans wost.
It Is notable that though holding
tho combination In restraint of com
petition, tho court did not deny tho
dofenso'a contention that neither had
rats ocen rn,sod nor scrvlco lowered.
i mo company snowed, on the enn-
trary, that slnco tho merger It had
exponded Hundreds of millions ot
dollars on Improvements, vastly rais
ing tho standard of Its servlco, nnd
this contention atandB without dis
proof. Warning Wilson Against Bryan.
Hearst continues to-attack" and op
pose Dryan and warn Wilson not to
lie up with him as the chief, factotum
of his administration, Hearst's ani
mosity Is deepened because of Hryan's
defeat of Chump Clark at naltmore,
slnco Clark was Hearst's own prlvato

Hearst's papers ro declaring that
Uryan ditched democracy In 1900 and
1908, and would have dono so In
1912 had ho beon able to force his
fourth nomination. They denounce
Bryan's loyalty nnd warn Wilson
"not to comfort himself with tho de
lusion that tho placing of Bryan In
his cabinet would lav'thn Incamnln
selfishness ot tho Nebraskan under
such obligations as to disarm his
candidacy for 1916."
Then Mr. Hearst's various Journals
proceed to pour their big guns Into
Dryan by declaring:
He owed long years of loyal and help

"COAL! COAL! COAL!"

The only thought, a man can think in
these distressing days
In one that teems with anthracite, and
falls his hopes to raise!
His dreams aro all bituminous, or llg-
nlto In. their form
And none of them Is of the sort that
helps to keep him warm. .
The only s'onr that he can sing to sodthe
his troubled soul
Is stratified In metcr-and It's "Coal!
Coal! Coal! Coat! ,
And I wish my cellar was filled!

And my back fence Is almost gone.

Folks used, to talk of this and that, ot
politics and ' wheat.
They used to talk of sewers and of fixing
. up tho streets;
They used to preach repentance and ad-

But now a fellow blgckslldes In the hbpe
that he'll get warm!
We hear a lot of singing ones, whose
mellow accents roll,
But all the tune that we can hear Is
Coal! Coall Coal! -
Coal! Coal! Coal! 1
