The Globe-Republican Globs-Republlcan Ptg. Co., Pub. DODGE CITY, I 1 KANt, , The Tuberculosis Congress. Few things which mark the modern progress of civilization have advanced so rapidly as knowledge of the nature and curability of tuberculosis. The decision of physicians that the disease is not hereditary has lifted a burden of dread from thousands of hearts, and the success of methods of treatment in tho early stages of the disease has brought hope to thousands of others. But far more Important than this has been, and will be, the work of bringing about an understanding of the dangers of the disease and impressing the ne cessity of precautions. From Septem ber 21 to October 12 the United States will be the host of the international congress on tuberculosis, which is to meet in Washington. Mr. Roosevelt has lately accepted the presidency of the congress. The occasion will un doubtedly be the most important event that has yet occurred in the fight against the dread disease. The con vention will bring together the most noted experts of the world, and meth ods of treatment and prevention which have shown the best results will be illustrated. It will be as interesting to the layman as to the physician, for in the stamping out of consumption muci of the work will have to be done by laymen officers of state and city governments, the police, boards of health and private citizens. It Is to be hoped, says the Youth's Companion, that the congress will also do some thing to allay the groundless fear which many persons have of anyone known to be suffering from tubercu losisan attitude which frequently renders it impossible to secure the most desirable sites for treatment camps or hospitals, and often results in grave injustice, if not actual cruel ty, to the individual. If due precau tion is observed, isolation is in no way necessary. This, indeed, is the chief lesson which those most familiar with the matter are trying to Impress. Freight shipped to merchants east of the Mississippi must be plainly marked with the name and address of the consignee hereafter, according to a recent decision of the railroad compa nies. It has been the practice of manu facturers to mark the 'goods wiih a hieroglyphic, partly to save time in shipments, and partly to prevent spies from competitors learning who their customers are. This practice has made It difficult for the railroad companies to deliver the goods. One company Is said to have lost fifteen hundred thou sand dollars in the last ten' years, be cause It has had to reimburse shippers for goods lost on the road. Goods in car-load lots may go marked in cipher as heretofore, as it is not difficult to deliver a car at the point to which it Is billed. Another national park Is likely to be added to the domains of the United States at the next session of congress. The senate committee on public lands has reported in favor of taking the wild and beautiful glacier region of the continental divide in Montana a tract comprising nearly a million acres. The region contains numerous peaks from 6,000 to 10,000 feet in height, and about 60 glaciers. The large number of big game animals, such as Rocky mountain white goats, bighorn, grizzly, deer, elk and moose, suggests the value of reserving the tract as a breeding-ground for the sur rounding region. The name proposed is the Glacier National park. Corn Is getting to be one of the great products of the world, although the United States has the first call. The uses to which corn may be put are rapidly increasing In number. Mak ing glucose from the grain is the foun dation of an important industry, and a New York conern, finding the Amer ican supply petering out, is importing stock from Argentina. But there is promise of a bumper yield in our corn states next fall, and the foreign article is merely a stop-gap. The mills will run at a still livelier raje when the home supply comes to market. Mr. Flagler's retirement from Standard Oil, on account of his ad vanced years, would seem to be par donable, though he is not thereby wholly freed from carklng cares. A man who is almost an octogenarian, and who has got several hundreds of millions of dollars on his hands, has need to be anxious lest he may die disgraced. Count Tolstoi is fortunate if he as pires to have his books become best sellers. The Russian censor has just ordered three of them suppressed. How some American writers who want circulation must wish their writings could be suppressed. A woman lecturer in Boston sneers at men for wearing starched collars. She is unreasonable. Lota of collars . are only starched when thy come from the laundry, not after they art oo awhile. FARMAN IS IN NEW YORK. Scotch Aeroplane Inventor to Make a Series of Flights. New York, July 28. That the future of the aeroplane as a safe means of conveyance is practically assured was the confident declaration made by Henry Farman, the aeroplane inventor and navigator who arrived here Sun day on board the La Touraine from Europe for a series of flights in his now famous flying machine at Brighton Beach, Farman was wel comed down the bay by a reception committee of the Aero club of Ameri ca. After two weeks in this city it Is expected that ' Farman will make flights in Philadelphia, Chicago, Bos ton, Pittsburg and St. Louis. Mr. Farman spoke freely of his plans and work and when asked what he contemplated attempting next, said: "To do new things. We are all the time moving like birds. You can not explain these minuto details for they are of such an Infinite variety. We are always changing more or less. Every day brings something new and I shall try something new right along, "Among the other difficulties to be met with in aeroplane flight Is the presence of trees, houses and high structures which divert the wind from its true course." "Has the aeroplane a future so far as a practicability is concerned?" he was asked. "Yes," replied Farman, "It will have a future to a very great extent. I think the aeroplane will be safer than the automobile or other methods of conveyance. It ""W ill be so easy and so quick. My greatest pause in flight has been ten seconds, starting on an as cending wind. The birds in their flight have a special instinct which we will never havo, but we can improve our methods by using some of the methods of the bird.

Democratic Candidate Spends a Quiet Sunday. Chicago, July 28. William J. Bryan spent tho greater part of Sunday quietly in his rooms in the Auditorium annex, where throughout the day he received a number of visitors, chief among whom was Frank II. Hitch cock, chairman of the Republican na tional committee who called to pay his respects to the Democratic leader. The two men spent some time in a pleasant conversation which was ap parently enjoyed by them boUi. roll lies was not mentioned during their talk. Mr. Bryan announced Sunday night that on some day next week lie will announce the dates on which he in tends making addresses during the next two months. He left at 10:30 o'clock Sunday night for Omaha where he will be Monday as the guest of the Ak Sar Ben club at a banquet. He will also be initiated into the society as a member. Although William R. Hearst of New York arrived during the day and his room in the hotel was not far from that of Mr. Bryan, neither of the men paid the slightest attention to the other. They did not meet during the day and no messages were exchanged. It was announced that John R. Bur ton of New York will act as assistant secretary of the national committee throughout the campaign. Willis J. Abbott was appointed head of the press bureau which will work in con nection with the advisory bureau which is under the direction of Henry Watterson. After Friend's Body. Kansas City, July 28. The Rev. William J. Dalton, pastor of the Church of the Annunciation, and Bish op Thomas Bonacum of Lincoln, Neb., will go to Munich, Vavaria, next week to bring back the body of the Rev. William Wheeler, formerly a St. Louis priest, who died in Munich, 29 years ago. To Welcome Victorious Riflemen. New York, July 28. Experts and enthusiasts in marksmanship are planning a royal welcome to Gen. James A. Drain, president of the Na tional Rifle Association of America, and the sharpshooters who won the world's championship at the Olympic contests in London lately. German Car Reaches Paris. Paris, July 28 Tho German auto mobile in the New York-to-Paris race arrived here Sunday evening and was greeted with loud cheers by the Sun day promenaders as it swept up the crowded boulevards to the finish post, and escorted by a large number of automobiles. American Car Will Win. Paris, July 28 It is announced as practically certain that the American car in the New York-to-Paris race will be adjudged the winner owing to the non-compliance of the German competitors with certain conditions governing the race. California Flood Does Damage. Antloche, Cal., July 28. Early Sun day morning 200 feet of the San Joa quim river levee gave way and Jersey Island, comprising 4,000 acres, includ ing 300 acres of celery, was flooded. The property loss is estimated at five million dollars. Three Hundred Houses Burned. Kovno, Russia, July 28.

The feature of the entire celebration, however, was the nollllcatlon which took place during a lull In the activities of tho citizens. The occasion wus an auspicious one. AVIien Senator Warner had finished his address, Mr. Taft arose from his chair at the speaker's table and addressed the assembled members of the notification committee. lie spoke of curbing the trusts, without oppressing good corpora tions. He declared that the rates of the railroads of this country were reason ably low. Moderation was his whole theme and lie proposed to restore con fidence. But the big feature of the speech was Ills declaration for Koosevcltlan policies, which he said he would follow out to the letter, the foundations having been laid In them for rightful administration. He took a few shots at the Democratic plut fnrm, also. Mr. Taft spoke as follows: Si nntor Warner and Gentlemen of the Colllllliltee: "I am deeply sensible of the honor which the Republican mtionul conven tion h.-'s conferred on me In the nomina tion which vou formally tender. 1 accept It with full appreciation of the responsi bility it imposes.

What Roosevelt Has Done. "The man who formulated the c-xpres- ' slon of the popular conscience and who led the movement for practical reform was Theodore Roosevelt. He laid down the doctrine that the rich violators of Un law should be amenable to restrain and punish ns the offender without wealth, and without Influence, and lie proceeded by recommending legislation and direct ing executive action to mako t hut prin ciple good In actual performance. He secured the passage of the so-called rate bill, designed more effectively to restrain excessive and fix reasonable rates, and to punish secret rebates and discrimina tion which have been general In the prac tice of the railroads, and which had done much to enable unlawful trusts to drive out of business their competitors. It se cured much closer obsi rvation of rail way transactions and brought within tin-' operation of the same statute express companies, sleeping car companies, fast freight and refrigerator lines, terminal railroads and pipe lines, and forbade in future the combination of the transpor tation and shipping business under one control, in order to avoid undue discrim ination. "1'rosfdont Roosevelt directed suits to he brought and prosecutions to be instituted I tinder the anti-trust lir.v. to enforce its ! provisions against the most powerful of the industrial corporations. He pressed to passage the pure food law. and the '. meat inspection law. in the Interest of the health of the put, lie, clean iuisin-ss methods and great lil'lmate In nefu to the trades themselves, lie recommended the passage of a law, wh'eli the Republican convention has since s.iieelfieallv ap proved, restricting the future Issue of stocks and bonds by Interstate rail ways, to sin h as may be authorized by federal authority. Function of Next Administration. "The chief function of the next ad ministration In my judgment In dislinot from and a progressive development which has been perform! d by President Roosevelt. "The chief function of the next admin istration is to complete and perfect the Bl.-ieblnerv bv which them- standards may be maintained by which the law breakers rnav be promptly restrained and pun ished, but which shall operate Willi suf ficient accuracy and dispatch to interfere Willi legitimate business as little as pos sible. Such machinery Is not now ade quate, t'nder the tin-sent rate bill, mid tinder all its amendments, the bunion of le." Interstate commerce commission- In supervising and regulating the operation of the railroads of tbi:i country hun grown so heavy that It. is ultorly impns fsib'e for that tribunal to hear and dis pose, in any reasonable time, of the many complaint)-,,' (lurries and Issues that are brought before it for decision. It ought to he relieved of Its Jurisdiction as nn executive, directing body, and its func tions should be limited to the quasi-judicial Investigation of complaints by in dividuals, and by a department of the government charged with the executive business of supervising the operation of railways. Constructive Work Detailed. "The field covered by the industrial combinations and by the railroads Is so very extensive that the Interests of the public and the Interests of the businesses concerned cannot be properly subserved except by reorganization of bureaus In the department 01 rommcrcH aim laoor, of agriculture, and the department of jus tice, and a change In the Jurisdiction of the Interstate commerce commission. It does not assist matters to prescribe new duties for the interstate commerce com mission which it Is practically Impossible for it to perform, or to denounce new of fenses with drastic punishment, unless subordinate an auxiliary legislation shall be passed, making possible the quick enforcement in the great variety of cases which are constantly arising, of the principles laid down by Mr. Roose velt, and with respect to which only typi cal Instances of prosecution with the ? resent machinery are possible. Such eglslatlon should and would greatly promote legitimate business by enabling those anxious to obey the federal stat utes to know Just what are the bonds f tMr Intvful action. The practical con- structlve and difficult work, therefore, of ' those Who follow Mr. Boosevelt, Is to de vise the ways and means by which the high level of business Integrity and obe dience to law which he has established may be maintained, and departures from It restrained without undue Interference with legitimate business. Railway Traffic Agreements. "It is agreeable to note In this regard that the Republican platform expressly and the Democratic platform Impliedly approve an amendment to the Interstate commerce law, by which Interstate rail roads may make useful traffic agree ments, if approved by the commissions. Tills has .been strongly recommended by President Roosevelt, and will make for the benefit of the business. "Some of the suggestions of the Demo cratic platform relate really to this subordinate and ancillary machinery to which I have referred. Take for In stance, the so-called physical valuation of railways. It is clear that the sum of all rates or receipts of a railway, less proper expenses, should be limited to a fair profit upon the reasonable value of Its property, and that If the sum exceeds this measure, It ought to be reduced. The dlttlcuity In enforcing the principle Is In ascertaining what is the reasonable value of the company's property, and in fixing what Is a fair profit. It is clear that the physical value of a railroad and Its plant is an clement to be given weight In de termining its full value; but as Presi dent Roosevelt In his Indianapolis speech and the supreme court have point ed out, the value of the railroad as a go ing concern. Including its good will, due to efficiency of service, and many other circumstances, may be much greater than the value of lis tangible property and it Is tlie former that measures the investment on which a fair profit must be allowed. Then. too. t lie ques tion what Is a fair profit Is one Involving not only the rale of Interest usually earned on hnrninily safe Invest ments,' but also a sufiieieiit allowance to make up for the risk of loss both of cap ital and interest in the original outlay. Those considerations will have justilicd I lie company in imposing charges high enoueh to secure a fair income on the cub rprise as a whole. What Roosevelt Said. "As V..: Roosevelt has paid in speak ing of tills very subject: " 'The i ffect of such valuation and su pervision of securities cannot be retro active. Kxisting securities should be tested by laws in existence at the time of tip-It- Issue. This nation would no more injure seeiiritiiM which have be come an important part of the national wealth than iL would consider a propo sition to repudiate the national debt.' I lie question of rales and treat ment of railways is one that has two sides. The shippers are certainly en titled to reasonable rates: but less is an iniustice to tho carriers. Good business for the railroads is essential to general prosperity. Injustice to them is not alone injustice to stock holders and capitalists, whose further investments may lie necessary for the good of the whole country, but It di rectly affects and reduces the wages of railroad employes. "r'or what has been said, the proper conclusion would seem to be that In attempting to determine that whether the entire schedule of rates of a rail way is excessive, the physical valua tion of the road is a relevant and im portant but not necessarily a control ling factor. Physical valuation proper ly used will not generally impair se curities. Rates Are Low, He Says. "In some cases, doubtless. It will be found that overcapitalization is made an excuse for excessive rates, and then they should be reduced, but the con sensus of opinion seeins to be that the railroad rates generally In this coun try are reasonably low. This is why doubtless the complaints filed with the Interstate commerce commission,, agauist excessive rates are so few as compared with those against unlawful discrimination in rates between shippers and between places, (tf course In the de termination of the qmslion whether dis crimination Is unlawful or not, the phys ical valuation of the whole road is of lit tle weight. "I have discussed with some degree of detail merely to point out that the valuation by the intirsti.te commerce commission of tho tangible property ot a railroad is proper and may from time to time be necessary In settling certain of the Issues which may come before them and that no evil or in iustice can come from valuation In such cases, if It be understood that the result is to be used for a just pur pose, and tho right to a fair profit un d( r all circumstances of the Invest ment Is recognized. The interstate com merce commission has now the power to ascertain the value of the physical railroad property If necessary In de termining the reasonableness of rates. National Control of Corporations. "Another suggestion In respect to subordinate and ancillary machinery neeess.arv to carry out Republican poli cies is that of the incorporation under national law or tho licensing by na tional license or enforced registry of companies engaged In Interstate traoe. The fact Is that nearly all corporations doing a commercial business are en gaged In interstate commerce, and if they all were required to take out a federal license or a federal charter, the burden upon the interstate busi ness of the country would become In tolerable. "It Is necessary, therefore, to de vise Home means for classifying and insuring federal supervision of such corporations as have the power and temptation to effect restraints of In terstate trade and monopolies. Such corporations constitute n very small percentage of all engaged in Inter state business. Roosevelt's Proposed Classification. "With such clasiflcatlon In view, Mr. Roosevelt recommended an amendment In the anti-trust law, known as -the Hepburn bill, which provided for vol untary clasiflcatlon. and created a strong motive therefore by grunting Immunity from prosecutions for rea sonable restrictions of Inter-state trade to all corporations which would register arid submit themselves to the mihlieitv regulation of the depart ment of commerce and labor. "Tho Democratic platform suggests a requirement that corporations and Interstate trade having control of 25 per cent, of the products In which they deal shall take out a federal license. This classification would probably In clude a great many small corpora tions engaged In the manufacture of special articles or commodities whose total value is so Inconsiderable that they are not really within the per vlew or real evil of the anti-trust law. It is not now necessary, however, to discuss the relative merit of such prop ositions, but It Is enough merely to af firm the necessity for some method by which greater executive supervision can be given to the federal government over these businesses In which there Is a temptation to violations of the anti trust (aw. Construction of Anti-Trust Law. "The possible operation of the anti trust law under existing rulings of tho supreme court has given rise to sugges tion for its necessary amendment to prevent Its applications to cases which it Is believed were never In the contem plation of the framera of the statute. Take two instances: A merchant or man ufacturer engaged In a legitimate buslf ness that covers certain states, wishes to sell Ids business and his good will, and so in the terms of the sale obligates himself to the purchaser not to go Into tho same business in those states. Such a restraint of trade has always been en forced at common law. Again the em ployes of an Interstate railway combine ami enter upon a peaceable and lawful strike to secure better wages. At com mon law this was not a restraint of trade or commerce or a violation of tho rights of the company or of tho public. Neither case ougtit to be made a violation of the anti-trust law. My own impression Is that the supreme court would hold that neither of these Instances are within Its Inhibition, but If they are to be so regarded, general legislation amending the law Is necessary, Democratic Plank Discussed. "The suggestion of the Democratic, platform that trusts be ended by for bidding corporations to hold more than r,u per cent, of the plant In any line of manufacture Is made without regard to the possibility of enforcement or the real evil in trusts. A corporation con trolling 4.1 or all per cent, of the products may by well known methods frequently effect monopoly and stamp out compe tition In any part of the country as com pletely as if It controlled 60 or 70 per cent, thereof. Proper Treatment of Trusts. "Unlawful trusts should be re strained with all the elilciency of In junctive process and the persons en gaged In maintaining thorn should be punished witli all the severity of crim inal prosecution, In order that methods pursued In the operation of their busi ness shall be brought within tho law. To destroy them and to eliminate the wealth they represent from the pro ducing capital of the country would entail enormous loss, and would throw out of employment myriads of work lngmen. Such a result Is wholly un necessary to the accomplishment of the needed reform, and will Inflict upon the Innocent far greater punishment than upon the guilty. "The Democratic platform does not propose to destroy the plan of the trust physically, but It proposes to do the same thing In a different way. The business of this country Is largely de pendent upon a protective system of tariffs. The business done by many of the so-called trusts Is protected with the other businesses of the country. The Democratic platform proposes to take off the tariff in all articles com ing Into competition with those pro duced by the so-called 'trusts' and to put them on the free list. If such a course would be utterly destructive of their business as it is, indeed, it would not only destroy the trusts, but all of their smaller competitors. Effect of Democratic Policies. "To take the course suggested by the Democratic platform In these mat ters is to Invoke the entire commu nity, innocent as It is, in the punish ment of the guilty, while our policy is to slump out the specific evil. "This difference between the policies of the two great parties Is ot special importance, in view of the present con dition of business. After the years of Hie most remarkable material develop ment and prosperity, there comes finan cial Mt'inconcy. a panic, an industrial depresMon. This was brought about not only by the i normoiis expansion oi business plant.-: nod business investment.-! which could not be readily con cern d, but also by tin- waste of cap ital in extravagance i f living, in wars, and oilier catastrophes, The free convertible capital was exhausted. Ill addition to this, the confidence of the lending public In Knrope and in this country had been a fl eeted by the rev elations of Irregularity, breach of trust, over issue of stock, valuations of law and lack of rigid state or na tional supervision in management of our largest corporations. Investors "withheld what loanable capital re mained available, it became Impossible for the soundest railroads and other enterprises to borrow money enough for new construction and reconstruc tion.

"Threatened unlawful Injuries to busi ness, like these described above, can only be adequately remedied by an injunction to prevent them.
