their lives to duty.

weakness or displacement is often
brought on and they suffer in silence,
drifting- along from bad to worse,
knowing well that they ought to
have help to overcome the pains and
aches which daily make life a burden.

Marriage License Law Pails.

age license law failed in the House
Wednesday after a heated debate
lasting about an hour. The bill was
favored by members from counties
having large cotton mill populations,
where there is much marrying, and
by Representatives of counties bord
ering on North Carolina and Georgia,
especially North Carolina. Thc bill
was killed by a vote of 59 to 47, be
ing opposed on the ground that it
was a step toward a divorce law, and
would complicate proving marriages
in civil cases. *
Thc House without a dissenting
voice passed a very important bill
by Mr. Nash, forbidding the employ
ment of minors without the consent
of parents or guardians, but allow

The 2-cent fare law was enacted by

both Houses by a practically unani
mous vote. The railroads fought the
bill vigorously and after it became a
law the Pennsylvania Railroad insti
tuted suit in the Common Pleas Court,
jf Philadelphia, restraining the Coun
ty of Philadelphia from enforcing the
law. The railroad contended that the
law was unconstitutional in that it
was unreasonable and confiscatory,
and thu court in a decision sustained
the company's contention. The Coun
ty of Philadelphia then took the case
to the State Supreme Court.

action in several counties of the

From the (Railway Wi
Mr. Herbert Knox Smith, whose zeal In the
eause of economic reform has been in no wise
abated by the paDlc which he and his kind
aid so much to bring on, is out with an an-*
Bwer to President Moffett, of the Standard
Oil Company of Indiana. Tho publication o?
this answer, it is officially given out, was de
layed several weeks, "for business reasons,"
because lt was not deemed advisable to
?urther excite the public mind, which was
profoundly disturbed by the crisis. Now that
tho storm clouds have rolled by, however, pfetf
Commissioner rushes again into the fray.
Our readers remember that the chief
points in the defence of the Standard Oil
Company, as presented by President Moffett,
were, (1) that the rate of six cents on oil
from Whiling to East Et, Louis has been is
sued to the Standard Oil Company as the
lawful rate by employes of the Alton, (2)
that the ?S-cent rato on file with the Inter
state Commerce Commission was a class and
not a commodity rate, never being intended
tc apply to oil, (3) that oil was shipped In
large quantities between Whiting and East
S.t. Louis over the Chicago and Eastern
Illinois at six and one-fourtL cents per hun
dred pounds, which has been filed with the
Interstate Commerce Commission as the law
ful rate, and (4) that the 18-cent ra J on oil
was eutirely out of proportion to lawful rates
on other commodities between these points
of a similar character, and o! greater value,
such, for example, as linseed oil, the lawful
rate on which wa3 elgh't ce??s. President
Moffett also stated that thousands of tons of
freight had been sent by other shippers be
tween these points under substantially the
same conditions as governed the shipments
of the Standard Oil Company.
This defence of the Standard Oil Company
wa3 widely quoted and has undoubtedly ex
erted a powerful influence upon the public
mind. Naturally the Administration, which
has staked the success of its campaign
against the "trusts" upon the result ot its at
tack upon this company, endeavors to offset
this influence, and hence the new deliverance
of Commissioner Smith.
We need hardly to point out that his re
buttal argument is extremely weak, although
as strong, no doubt, as the circumstances
would warrant.' Ho answers the points made
by President Moffett substantially as follows:
(1) The Standard Oil Company had a traffic
department, and should have known that the
six-cent rate had not been filed, (2) no an
swer, (3) the Chicago and Eastern Illinois
rate was a secret rate because it read, not
from Whiting, but from Dolton, which is
described as "a village of about 1,500 popu
lation just outside of Chicago. Its only
claim to note ls that it has been for many
years the point of origin for thia and similar
secret rates." The Commissioner admits ia
describing this rate that there was a no?.e
attached stating that the rate could also be
used from Whiting.
The press has quite generally hailed this
statement of the Commissioner of Corpora
tions as a conclusive refutation of what is
evidently recognized as the strongest rebuttal
argument advanced by the Staudard.
In fact, lt is as weak and inconclusive a3
the remainder of his argument. The lines of
the Chicago and Eastern Illinois do not run

sacks cf your fertilizer, ai it was cheap and said to be good. I put it un

cost mc ?.15 a ton more, and in tho same proportion per acre. I don

shippers in the terri
tory had been guilty. Considering tho fact
that these shippers included the packers and
elevator men of Chicago, the action of the
grand jury in calilos; upon President Moffett
to furnish evidence of their wrong-doing may
be interpreted as a demand for an elabora
tion of the obvious; but the fact that a rata*
book containing these freight rates for otho?
shippers was offered in evidence during the
trial and ruled out by Judge Landis, was
kept out of sight. President Moffett would
not, of course, accept the invitation of the
grand jury although be might have been
pardoned if he had referred them to various
official investigations by the Interstate Com

We come back, therefore, to thc conclusion
6f the v/tale matter, which is that the Stand
ard Oil Company of Indiana Was fined an
amount equal to ?ev?? Or eight times the
value of- its entire property, because ita trafilo
department c*Id not verify the statement of
the Alton,rate clerk, that the six-cent com
modity rate on oil had beep properly flied
with the Interstate Commerce Commission.
There is no evidence, and none was Intro
duced at th? trial, that any shipper of pfl
from Chicago territory had been'Interfered
with by the eigkteeh-cent rate nor that the
failure of the Alton to file its six-cent rat?
had resulted in any discrimination against
. any independent shipper,-wo must take this
on the word of tho Commissioner of Cor
porations and of Judge Landis. Neither is it
denied even by Mr. Smith that the. "inde
pendent" shipper of oil, whom he pictures as
being driven out of business by this discrim
ination of the Alton, could have shipped all
the oil he desired to ship from Whiting via
Holton over the lines of the Chicago and;
Eastern Illinois to East St. Louis. In short;
President Moffett's defence is still good, and
we predict will be declared so by the higher
Tho Standard Oil Company has been
charged with all manner of crimes and mis
demeanors. Beginning with the famous Rice
of Marietta, passing down to that apostle ot
popular liberties, Henry Demarest Lloyd,
with his Wealth Against the Commonwealth,
descending by easy stages to Miss" Tarbell's
offensive personalities, we finally reach the
nether depths of unfair and baseless mis
representation in the report of the Commis
sioner of Corporations. The Standard has
been charged with every form of commercial
piracy and with most of the crimes on the
corporation calendar. After long years dt .
strenuous attack, under tho leadership of the
President of the United Statea, tbe corpora
tion is at last dragged to the bar of justice to
answer for its misdoings. The whole strength
of the Government is directed against lt, and
at last, we are told, the Standard Oil Com
pany is to pay the penalty of its crimes, and
lt is finally convicted of having failed to
verify the statement of a rate clerk and is/
forthwith fined a prodigious sum, measured
by the car. Under the old criminal law, the
