'ALBTTQTTEKOTTE CITIZEir. PAGE TnittSK. THE ANTI-LIQUOR COUNTRY NEEDS CONVENTION IN JULY QUIET AND REST Prohibitionists Have Learned Political Wisdom and Will Meet Later Than Usual. Washington. April t. The national Prohibition convention will bt hell it Memorial hall, Columbu.s O.. July i: It Is a late date ami aj chosen deliberately that the Prohibitionists miKbt lake advantage of any mistake!! made, by the other parties at their conventions. Thl 1st strateisy, of course, and unnther sgn that the rrohibitionlsts have cut their political eye-teeth. Anyway, they believe that they have framed up a program along praetieal line. and that they are going to cut m wide swath thl year. There will lie less preaching than in the past and more aggressive attacks on the cohorts of the rum demon. Office holders who In the past have been Bly nough to get both the wet and dry votes will be forced Into the open. A sample of the new atylo of cam paigning, was afforded by the action i the national Prohibition commit tee in Bonding-a couple of men here thin w:nter to build a fire under Con gress. Matthew E. O'Brien, chief fire builder, through his persistent de nitind for liquor legislation and that congressmen go on record, is driving l presentativc of semi-dry districts to drink and despair. They would be much obligii if he would go to Dev il's island for a change, but he seems o like Washington, and whenever an opportunity to make trouble is pre sented, he Is on the spot, smiling, icute und persistent. O'Hrien is Just a sample copy. Kn couraged by the wide spread of the whisky drouth, especially in the south, the Prohibitionists figure on getting political sense into their nom inations and methods and on getting big results. The call for the national conven tion contains the declaration that the "prohibition of tho manufacture, im portation, transportation and sale of alcoholic liquors" Is the main ques tion before the people and that there is a fair chance of the present cam aign "sounding the death knell of this destructive traffic." There will be at the convention four delegates-at-large from each state and one delegate for every 200 votes cast for Dr. Silas C. Swallow, the Prohibitionist candidate In 1904. The vote for Swallow was 258,538; eo there will be about 1500 votes In the convention. Her.ently the Prohibition leaders predicted that 1,000,000 votes would he cast for their candidates next fall. Now. they say, tho number may go to f .000,000, unlss the conventions of the old parties take action. Wall Street Outlook Is For Decided Improvement In All Lines of Business. SALVATION ARMY ISSUES!

Kvents of tho past week have been of a more en couraging character, especllaly those relating to federal and state legisla tion. Perhaps the most far reaching if these events was the decision of tho supremo court of the United States in the celebrated Minnesota and South Carolina, railroad rate eases. This decision asserts that the fixing of rates by legislation so low as to be practically confiscatory is In direct violation of the constitution, since the latter prohibits any legisla tion which takes property without Just compensation. Hereafter, there will be no successful attempts by state legislation to nullify the guarantees of the fourteenth amendment and federal courts will be enabled to en force their decrees In spite of the op position of state officers. As already said, this Is a decision of the highest Importance. It once more affirms the fact that the constitution of the Unit ed States is the supreme law of the land; It guarantees protection to property, and will put an effectual stoppage upon the confiscatory at tacks on property which have become so popular in state legislatures for political or socialistic purposes. Another favorable Incident was the temperate character of the president's message. Howsoever the various rec ommendation in that message may be considered, there will be one opinion as to the wisdom of a calm and dis passionate presentation of admlnlstrn' five views upon public questions. In this respect the president's last mes sage should be an example to other Individuals who are taking leading parts In the present political cam paign. The time for excessive denun ciation and exhortation has passed. The country has had more than enough of that sort of political agi tation; It now needs quiet and rest in order that business may recover from the panic and that, the reforms which have been so earnestly pressed may be calmly considered, and If necessary put Into effect after well considered and deliberate debate. The president Is to be strongly commended for his Judicial attitude toward both capital and labor. He insists that both shall have their rights; that both have their responsibilities; that both shall bo equal before the law, and that neither shall claim nor secure special exemption and privilege. He also no tifies labor that It cannot expect to have boycotts or blacklists legalized. Altogether tho president's message has done much toward soothing irri tated nerves and softening the asper ities of the political campaign. Inci dentally, he has materially Improved the chances of Republican success at the polls next November. j Quito recently the Sherman Anti Trust law has been a subject of ac tive discussion. Its original crudity in prohibiting all contracts in re straint of trade has long been self evident. Roth capital and labor are Interested in having the act so am ended as to permit the ordinary com binations of tho day, which are In separable from modern business methods. The Hepburn act Is an ab surd complex and effusive attempt to amend the Sherman law. Everything It attempts could be accomplished by suitable Introduction of the word unreasonable. So long as contracts are reasonable in their restraints and not against the Interest of all con cerned, they should be permitted; and in case of disputes tho courts may easily be called upon to decide be tween reasonable and unreasonable contracts. There still remains the common law, the application of which when invoked should be sufficient to protect both capital and labor from Improper encroachment or Interfer ence. The Hepburn bill should be Put This Stove in Your Kitchen It is wonderfully convenient to do kitchen work on a ttove that's ready at the 'instant wanted, and out of the way the moment you're done. Such a stove is the New Perfection Wick Blue Flame Oil Cook -Stove. By using it you avoid the continuous overpowering heat of a coal fire and cook with comfort, even in dog days. The NEWPERFEO10N Wick Blue Flame Oil Cook-Stove is so constructed that it cannot add perceptibly to the heat of a room; the flame being directed up a retaining chimney to the stove top where it is needed for cooking. You can see that a stove sending out heat in but m di rection would be preferable on a hot day to a stove radiating heat in all directions.

Fortunately, there Is little prospect of anything being done In Congress on this sub ject during the present session. The labor situation Is still unset tled; many hands are out of employ ment and the outlook in this respect is anything but satisfactory. With the approach of spring, rt is possible that some sort .of compromise may De et fected as work could often be more easily started if moderato concessions were obtained in wages. The wages problem Is still the most difficult question In many lines of Industry. It Is one perhap that is best left to set tle Itself free as possible of political and government Interference. Hoth capital and labor best understand their Individual interest, and should be quite able to reach an adjustment of thslr differences without outside interference. Any other method of settlement is a reflection upon the intelligence of one party or the oth er; besides we are getting father too much paternalism in government nowadays. The stock market has now had a very substantial rise, and the Induce ments to take profits by those who bought at punic prices have been Ir resistible. It is quite evident that the advance cannot be carried much fur ther unless a fresh buvlng element Is discovered. The leading operators have all tho stocks they want; and. since Niey were the chief buyers ut the lower stock level, It Is reasonable to infer that they are now diminish ing their holdings. Under the influ ence of easy money and the tendency to recover from panic conditions, the market may possibly bp carried to a higher level, but It is quite certain that the greater the advance the more free will profit-taking become. The general situation shows Indication of improvement. One encouraging feat ure was the reopening of a big finan cial Institution which was obliged to suspend during the panic. Trade In the west Is picking up slightly; rail road earnings are not showing 'such extreme losses as was the case in Jan uary and February, and the curtail ment enforced In many industries is preventing any great surplus of mer chandise. Money market conditions are satisfactory and the surplus re serve last week stood at $37,(100.000. The government Is now withdrawing Its deposit from the banks quite free ly, but this should not cause any dis turbance. The easier tendency In money lg worldwide; which Is fortu nate, as otherwise we might have to face large gold exports during the coming spring. April settlements will be looked forward to with some con cern, but less so this year than prevl ously. A good many maturities, how ever, will have to be taken care 'of at that time; yet under Improved mon etary conditions all business concerns showing a clean bill of health will have little difficulty in securing need ed accommodations. The conservative action of the banks during the last three months has had much to do with strengthening the situation, and it is gratifying to note that business fail ures, heavy as they have been, are le.ss than at one time feared. The readjustment process is la.-omplete, consequently some Industries are much more depressed than others. Nevertheless, it is reasonable to hope that the extreme depression following tho panic will disappear sooner than expected. We are promised an early spring and as there has been an abundance of moisture during th past month, conditions are favorable for a good planting season. Our agri cultural classes felt the panic but slightly, und in all probability they will have another profitable season because of the relative scarcity of ag ricultural products. Of the things which grow from Mother Earth, there Is scarcely an important surplus to be found anywhere. Operations In the stock market should be conducted with much con servatism. The conditions to which we have referred, It is true, are gen erally favorable, but they have fre quently been fully discounted. We advise caution on the buying side, after the recent considerable advance, and the taking of some profits grad ually hereafter. Any unfavorable de velopments would probably be fol lowed by free realizations and snarp declines. Icuh Wan On Ills Heels. Jesse P. Morris, of Skippers, Va., had a close call in the spring of 1906. He says: "An attack of pneu monia left me so weak and with such a fearful cough that my friends de clared consumption had me, and death was on my heels. Then I was persuaded to try Dr. King's New Dis covery. It helped me Immediately and after taking two and a half bot tles I was a well man again, I found out that New Discovery is the best remedy for coughs and lung disease in all the world."
