Monopolies constitute one of the
moat prevalent curses of the age. A
few grasp eitravatnnt profita which
the many have to pay. Monopolies
are not always a voidable, and it baa
twofnm hecn found necessary to
guard them, in many instance, from
hnaea h which the people are
robbed, by tbeintwventioncf the law
The Bell telephone is a monopoly that
ia used to produce all the profit it can
be made U bear, and that amount
proves to be more than the public is
disposed to bear, and now, lonuoaieiy
for the cituens, the law la unaertaa
in tn chck the expansive greed of
the owners of that monopoly. In la
diant the Supreme Court has decided
tba', the law enacted by that 8Ute re
ducing the charge of the telephone
from $5 to 13 for the use of a telephone
inttrument at'ached to an exchange,
ia constitutional. The company in
tend taking the caee up to the United
States Supreme Court. The company
contends tha', as they have a
IToitad States patent, Bute enact
ments cannot limit their charges.
But the court holds that while
the patent gives exclusive right ti use,
make and sell the artlc'e patented, it
does not give the power to make, use,
or sell in violation of Slute law. The
company also claimed that their enter
prise is a private one with which the
Legislature cannot interfere, any more
than with any other private business.
The court, however, decided that the
telephone is an important instrument
of commerce no other known device
can supply, aid ia therefore indispf n
sable to commerce. Its rektions to
ward the public make it a common
carrier of news, in the same sense that
the telegraph is a common carrier.
This imposes upon it well defined ob
ligations of a public character. The
instruments and appliances used in
connection with the telephone are,
therefore, in legal contemplation, de
leted to a public use, and property so
devoted becomes legitimate subject
of legislation and control. The court,
there f re, decided that the State Ltgls
lature has ample power to prescribe
maximum charges for telephone serv
ice. The New York Tim re
marks that as part of a com
mon carrier's business it must
enpply telephones and telephone ser
vice to those who want them in a die
trict covered by the exchange. Also,
if it supply a telephone to one man for
3 a month, as a common carrier, it
cannot refnse the same to .another
within its recogntz9d territory. A rent
of $;tti a year ia sullicient for the use' of
an instrument that cost $3 42, to jet her
with service, cost of wire and other
tliinga. In New York those who have
telephone are charged from $160 to
'.'16 a year, and a bill is before the
. I-egiblaUire ol New York placing tele
phone rants at not over $00 in New
York city, and $H1 in'other cities and
. villages. The victim) if an avaricious
monopoly will rei )ice that the law is
stepping in to secure them tome re
lease from a crying and vexatious in

Xiie people ol the toatli nave re
llecte: much upon the temperance
question, and by moderation and at
tempts to carry with them the moral
support of the communities where the
temperance organizations bnve taken
their most active measures, they have
met with a degree of succtsi and done
an amount of good that deserves pro
found admiration and gratitiHe. Even
the New York Poft, which has not
been onlina-ily numbered among the
South's admirers, says: " The sua iy
development of the temperance senti
mrnt in the South is a notewoithy
eijn of tho times. The low ut drunk
enneBH in tl:nt part of the country
have hu 1 the good sense to keep the
question out of politics, and to seek
their end by the use ol practicable
mi inures." So siicceewlul in many
lojalit'cs have been the efforts cf the

policy pttvwueu. many anient ti
turtles nofophirt baa ever been able
to overturn. The women hev great ,
influence in the South, as, God bless
them, they ought ti have everywhere,
and mothers and sisters and wivee
lifted up persuading voices and plead
ing eyes, and their eu'oeet advocacy
secured the cause they made sacred
from ribald contumely, they gave it
dignity and Influence. As far as this
gratifying progress made its way prac
tical miasures were set on foot The
moral influence gained, local option
followed, which ia widsly adopted. Its
success has been in proportion as it
baa bad the moral convictions of the
ne'ghborhooda where it was put in
epe ration. Where the general senti
ment regarded drinking as disgraceful,
and more disgraceful still when in
dulged in unlawfully and secretly, aa
horse and chicken-stealing are
indulged ia, local option bai
dons wonders not only where
thus prudently established, . bnt
by the effect of example upon
surrounding neighborhoods. Where
tba requisite amount of moral impres
sion bad not been made local 0 tion
failed, aud it was looked upon aa a
good joke to obtiin freely at unll
censed booses what the temperance
people bad denied by law before the
community was prepared to carry out
the change. High license, in Georgia
and Carolina especially, have con
tributed ti subdue a mania not yet
abolished, and to lead the people to
prize temperance by seeing drunken
ness diminished, a ad thus appearing
more hateful and disgusting when it
was exhibited. This has been
the secret of tsmperance suc
cess in the South to pre
pare the ground, secure goodwill
and arouse interest. The ground ready,
the seed waa town, local option or
high license were introduced just aa
communities could be got to accept
and welcome them. Where one step
ia made sure before another ia taken
access is permanent, for every ad
vance trade prepares f r another ad
vance. To precipitate matters leads to
disappointment. To depend not upon
the gcoi sense and moral convictions
of the people but upon force, driving
unwilling persons by the power of le
gal paina and penalties, make ship
wreck. "Make baste slowly," ia espe
cially a sound maxim in thia caw.
Harshness, driving or dictition, where
such a question aa temperance is con
cerned, will only awake hatred and
stimulate opposition. Such baa been
the policy by which temperance hai
won Its successes in the South : let our
people beware bow they depart from it.
The Panama canal project is becom
ing short of f undo, and ai one effort
toward raising them its great mana
ger, De esseps, is now on a visit to
the scene cf operations, and on his re
turn he will make a report as to the
condition and prospect of the work, a
report which will be an appeal for
more money. Lute ititemenia by vis
itors to the spot have been very dis
couraging, aa the amount of work done
is email and only of earth, the more
costly rock work not having begun,
nor the formidable labor to prevent
destruction from the Chagrea river yet
even planned out while the outlay
has been vast. The inference these
observers draw is that there will be
an ultimate abindonmert of the work,
or the co it of the work will be so im
mense that to make its receipts meet
the cost and running expense will be
impossible. Predictions upon such
point! have little authority. It was
again anc1 again proved and demon
strated by engineers and others, dur
ing the time of constructing the Sues
canal, that under no sum by aid of
which that work could be
completed, could it possibly pay
the interest upon the bare
cost. Kxpurience proves it to
be one of the beat paying works of the
day. Were the Chagres river out of
thn way, the Panama matter would as
sume an altogether different com'
plexion, although the work would be
a most formidable one even then.
FiOm the first it was known that with
that)river and its vast and violent floods
lay the main diflhulty. Yet, although
to quiet fears about that part of the
enterprise ia all-important to the rais
ing of money, the public is (till in ig
norance of any plan being decided
upon by which the formidable diffi
culty can be overcome. The confi
dence of M. de Lesseps ia unbounded,
and he his proved himself so able to
conquer difficulties that it ia hard to
pronounce the word "impossible"
where be is concerned, and the hardiest
critics of the work at Panama hesitate
to do co. Should De Lesseps'a investi
gation, now he is on the spot, be
thorough aud honest, his report will
once more rally his friends and ad
mirers around him, and operations
will go on with renewed spirit, and if
succeef-fu1, where will be the man of

The First Sign
Of falling health, whether in the form of
Kiglit Sweats and Nervousness, or in a
aense of General Weariness and Loss of
Apatite, should suggest the use of Ayer'a
Earsaparilla. This preparation ts most
effective for giving tone and strength
to the enfeebled system, promoting the
digestion and assimilation of food, restor
ing the nervous forces to their normal
condition, aud for purifying, enriching,
and vitalizing the blood.
Failing Health.
Ten years lajro my health begin to fall.
I was troubled with a distressing Cough,
Kigbt Sweats, Weakness, and Nervous
ness. I tried various remedies prescribed
by different physicians, but became so
weak that I could not (re up stairs with
out stopping to rest. My friends recom
mended me to try Aver's Sarsaparllla.
which I did, and I am now as healthy and
strong as ever. Mrs. . L. Williams,
Alexandria, Minu.
I have used Aver's Sarsaparllla, In my
family, for Scrofula, and know, if it s
taken faithfully, that it will thoroughly
eradicate this terrible disease. I have also
prescribed it as a tonic, as well as an alter
ative, and must say that I honestly believe
It to be the bet blood medicine ever
compounded. W. F. Fowler, I). D. S.,
fil. v., ureenTllle, t enn.
Dyspepsia Cured.
It would be linposilbb for mo to de
scribe what I sullcred from Indigestion
and Headache up to tin time I beirun
taking Aver's Sarsaparilh. I was under
the. care of various phyniciaiis and tried
a great many kinds of medicines, but
never ohtained moro tlnin temporary re
lief. After taking Aver's Sarsaparilla for
a (iliort time, my licadaJio disappeared,
and mv stomnch performed its duties more
pcrfec'tlv. To-day my health is com
pletely restored. Mary Hurley, Spring
field, Mass.
I have boen greatly brnefitcd by the
prompt mo of Aver s 8araparill. It
tones and invigorates the system, regulates
the action of the digestive ind assimilativo
organs, and vitalizes the blood. It h.
without doubt, the most reliable blood
purifier yet discovered. II. V. Johnson,
