If the republicans think they can do
nothing by legislation or by enforce
iment of present lawB to curb the power
of the trusts very well. Then let them
turn over the government to a party
which doeB have some hope of accom
plishing something by such means.
Something has got to be done, that is
sure. The laissez-faire policy will never
do for euch a problem as this.—Buffalo
At the age of 20 Queen Victoria was
married to Prince Albert, and at 42 was
left a widow. N'oW, at the age of 80,
she has devoted what she regards as
her last ollicial visit to the capital of
her empire to the taBk of dedicating to
the prince consort's memory the final
and crowning building of that South
Kensington museum which he founded
and which, as she decreeB, 1B henceforth
to be known as the Victoria and Albert
museum, iler career, thus outlined,
presents an example of wifely constancy
and devotion which would be admired
in any walk of life, and which has been
by no means common among royal
folks. It is her supreme di tinction
that she has never let the wife, the
mother and the woman be lost in the
mere queen.—M arion Register

"The trusts must go" is the keystone
of an organization which though com

in every state and territory. It is
known as tho American Anti-Trust

the league held a meeting in WaBhing

full set of national ollicerB, thus sets
'i forth its object: "The purpose of the

arouse the only power on earth that is
stronger than the power of money in

The name "black bandit" was face

that perhaps the man was a myth and
that there was a bug that did the busi

Press Censorship at Manila.
Our army commanded by Otis and
the Filipino army have been circling
around Munila for tho past live months,
like two men chasing each other around
a tree, and every day (ieneral Otis has
been telegraphing to Washington glow
ing accounts of victories won.
Most people have been fairly well
satislied for some time past that these
ollicial dispatches were official fabrica
tions, or largely so, and that the news
paper correspondents were being pre
vented from telling the truth. This
general belief is now an established
fact. The following statement, signed
by all the
Manila, was sent by messenger to a
liritish port and from there telegraph

"The undersigned, being all stall
correspondents of American news
papers stationed in Manila, unite in
the following statement: We believe
that owing to ollicial dispatches from
Manila made public in Washington the
people of the United StaleB have not
received a correct impression of the
situation in the Philippines, but that
these dispatches have presented an
ultra-optimistic view that is not Bhared
by the general officers in the field.
"We believe the dispatches incorrect
ly represent the existing conditions
among the Philippines in respect to
dissension and demoralization result
ing from the American campaign and
to the brigand character of their army.
"We believe the dispatches err in the
declaration that 'The situation is well
in hand' and in the assumption that the
insurrection can be speedily ended
without a greatly increased force.
"We think tho tenacity of the Fili
pino purpose has been underestimated,
and that the statements are unfounded
that volunteers are willing to engage in
"The censorship has compelled us to
participate in this misrepresentation by
exercising or altering uncontroverted
statements of facts on the plea, as

alarm the people at home,' or 'have the
people of the United States by the ears.'

Cleveland, O., July 24.—The scenes of
wild disorder and violence witnessed
in this city throughout Sunday and
Sunday night in conpection with the
street car strike were succeeded by
marked quietness. Cars are running
on at least a dozen different lines of
the Big Consildated system. They,
however, carry but few passengers.
Omnibus lines are in operation over
many of the Big Consolidated lines,
and these are well patronized. The
city authorities were in conference at
the city hall nearly all night, and, as
a result, a call has been sent out for
The riots and mob violence will be

press any uprising. If 800 troops are
not sufficient to this end the governor

The climax to the atrocities of Sun
day was reached at 10:40 o'clock, when
a Euclid avenue car, cast-bound, was
blown up by nitro-glycerine, fatally
Injuring four passengers, seriously in
juring five, besides bruising and
wounding nine others. The explosion,
which was heard three miles away,
occurred on Euclid avenue, near Dor
chester avenue, a place which is poor
ly lighted by street lamps. Few of the
cars at that hour were carrying any
passengers, but this one had fifteen
on board. Just previous to its arrival
at the Pennsylvania railroad crossing
a covered carriage was seen to drive
out on Euclid avenue and stop. The
occupants got out and laid something
on the tracks, two blocks from the
crossing. They then drove away, and
the car proceeded east. It was going
at a high rate of speed when It reached
the point where the nitro-glycerine.
was. There was a tremendous explo
sion and the car was scattered and the
passengers thrown in all directions.
Fatally and SerloiiKly Injured.
The injured are: Mrs. Harris, elder

The force of the explosion shook all
the buildings In the neighborhood. A
great crowd surrounded the car, per
sons coming from all parts of the city.
A general call for ambulances waa
sent out by the police department, and
three police patrol wagons went on a
gallop to the place.
Nohmly Kiicaped Injury.
The wounded laid groaning and
screaming on the pavement in all sorts
of attitudes. Tender hands raised
them from the ground, made them as
comfortable as possible, and took them
to their homes or to hospitals. To
all the explosion came unexpectedly,
and the first they knew of It was when
they found themselves flying through
the nil' amid fragments of the shat
tered car. Every person on the car
was Injured. The least Injured were
cut and bruised. Among the passen
gers was Morris Morrow, a reporter
for a local paper, who, although suf
fering from painful buises and cuts,
busied himself iu getting the facts for
his paper, and then went to his office
and wrote it up. The police have a
good description of the carriage and
occupants to whom is accredited the
placing of the explosive. The police
ordered all people indoors at 11
o'clock, and the enforcement of this
order brought quiet to the street soon
