WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 20,1899. OFPIOIAL PAPBR OF PITY AND OOUNTV The conviction of Dreyfus is a deep I stain upon the good name of the French government. It proves, if proof were needed, that large standing armies are a menace to a republic. The forgeries, perjury and rascality resorted to by the generals of the French army to secure the con viction of an innocent man, has made the "honor" of a French soldier a hiss ing and a by-word all over Christendom, Why Not Outlaw the Trusts Many remedies were suggested by the delegates to the Chicago Trust Con' ference, but so far as we have observed 110 one proposed outlawing these unlaw ful combinations. When gamblers make a gambling contract the law will not aid in its enforcement neither will the law assist in the enforcement of any other contract founded upon a consider ation contrary to public policy. Sup' pose that trusts should be denied all le gal remedies, denied the right to collect debts, or proteot their property in the courts,would not that end their exis tence Editor Killer Nominated for Senator. Brother Miller, of the Waverly Dem ocrat, was nominated by the Butler liremer senatorial convention last Mon day. Mr. Miller is an able writer and thinker, as well as a genial gentleman. In this Week's issue of his paper he has the following write-up of himself: C. W. Miller, of this paper, was hon ored with a unanimous nomination for the position of state senator of this dis trict. He has never achieved much of a reputation for either wickedness or piety, but confesses to having been more active in politics than in church work. Though a democrat of rather a radical type, he doee not claim that all of the political virtue of the country is concen trated within his own party and is fair enough to admit that there are many gentlemen and scholars in the ranks of the opposition.:: Especially is he anxious to make this admission at this time, when a few hundred republican votes are needed to secure his election. The Democrat finds no difficulty in persua ding itself that the best interests of the 'v Thirty-ninth district quite imj. demand his success at the polls, Early in the spring, Otis repeatedly telegraphed that he had troops enough to suppress the rebellion. Then a little later he assured the people of this coun try that he had broken the insurgent forces into small predatory bands, aDd that the end of hostilities was in sight. As Interludes between the accounts of crushing victories Otis would telegraph the cheering information that it was only a small section of one small tribe in Luzon that was making all the trouble for our forces, and that he had the small section of the. small tribe nearly cor ralled. Manila Bay? And, again, if the truth has been told, why is the administration working over time to increase our army in the Philippines to 70,000 men? After all,is not truth and honesty the best pol icy for nations as well bb for individuals Hon. Thomas B. Reed, late a much worshipped leader of the republican party, is, according to some of the or gans and mouth pieces of the McKinley administration,a full fledged copperhead, the endearing name they apply to all who do not approve of the attempt that is being madetosubjugatetheFilipinos. Last Thursday, according to a Portland, Maine, dispatch" Thomas B. Reed took part in a discussion with two Portland men and plainly expressed his sentiment in regard to*the war in the Philippines One of the friends with him, who is a radical expansionist, remarked that to withdraw our troops from the Philip pines now would humiliate our nation before the world. Mr. Beed replied: You don't think those Filipinos would chase our soldiers 7,000 miles, if they should start for home, do you? W. The Portland man responded that it was not the fear of the Filipinos, but humiliation in the sight of other nations that was referred to, whereupon Mr. Heed said: 1 have always observed that with in dividuals the fear of humiliation is ex actly in proportion as they deserve it, and I believe the same principle holds good with a nation as with a person. Some people seem to be afraid that these Filipinosjwill put their tongues in their cheeks at us. They have done that al ready. They have watched our failure as others have. I don't know how long it will be before the American people get tired of spending 950,000,000 a year trying to conquer these people, but it docB not seem to me it will be very long. I can conceive that freedom is just as dear to them aB it is to us and that they will light for it juBt as long." If Great Britain crushes the liberty loving Boers of South Africa, it will be a colossal crime against civilization. The subjects of Great Britain in the Transvaal are engaged almost to a man in mining, and are treated better than miners in any other country in the world. The Transvaal is a veritable miners' paradise. The taxes imposed are very light. The Canadian tax of ten per cent. on the Klondike miners is more than sixty times greater than the Transvaal tax, while the tax in some of the British South African colonies is 147 times greater than those levied by the Boers. All In his speech before the Chicago con I ference Bryan voiced the fundamental objections to all trusts, by saying that I their effect was to enthrone the dollar I and debase the man. He Speaks at the Trust Confer ence at Chicago. DEMANDS WIPING OUT OF TRUSTS. Be Would Prevent Them from Doing Inter-Stale Business—Natural Control of Combinations and the Withdrawal of Special Favors Proposed—The Ad dress of Hou, Bourke Coekran a Mas terpiece of Oratory and Argument* Chicago, Sept. 16.—Theorists, agrl sulturlsts, free traders, and protec tionists having said their say at the trust conference at Central Music hall, labor took its inning at the opening of the morning session and presented its tide of the case in a series of address es by the ablest leaders of its forces. That interest In the deliberations of the conference is growing daily was evidenced not only by the Increased attendance of the forenoon on the part of both delegates and visitors, but by the added Interest shown in the speeches and discussions. The pre ponderance of opinion in opposition to the trusts which was made evident repeatedly during the first two days of the convention, still existed—In fact, it was accentuated by the frequent and hearty applause that greeted each point scored against the combinations of capital that, according to the speak ers, bring no benefits and many hard ships to the already difficult lot of the worker. The leaders of the thought which controls the convention are evidently In favor of announcing to the world the convention's opinions through the medium of resolutions, but whether any formal action in the matter will be reported from the committee ap pointed yesterday to take charge of resolutions still remains to be seen. It is tihe general belief that unless a, re port can be drawn up that will re ceive almost unanimous support In the committee room and that can be read ily passed by the conference it would be a waste of time to consider resolu tions at all. It is said that there is a possibility of such resolutions being presented If they do not express too radically the opinion of any one fac tion. Hence the likelihood is that If they come before the convention they will be of an educational nature rath er than aiilirmations of policy. Why Not Let the Truth Be ToldP Gen. Otis, acting presumably in obe dience to instructions from Washington, has prevented the truth from being told relative to events and conditions in the Philippines. Not content with suppres- ««.. ulng the news by preventing newspaper I people are to be degraded to Indus men from-sending the facts to their pa-1 trial slaves wealth under such condl pere, he has gone further and substitu ted fiction and falsehood in lieu thereof. Governor Pingrec, In his address to the conference, said: "The trust is the forerunner, or rather the creator of industrial slavery. Increase of wealth of the country Is greatly to be considered, but If, the tions is a curse. "I favor complete and prompt an nihilation of the trust—with due re gard for property rights, of course, care more for the Independence and manliness of the American citizen than for all the gold and sliver In the world. It Is better to cherish the hap piness of the American home than to control the commerce of the globe. "The degrading process of the trust means much to the future of a repub lic founded upon democratic princi ples. A democratic republic cannot survive the disappearance of a demo cratic population." Crowds to Hear Bryan Chicago, Sept 18.—William J. Bryan was the first speaker at the forenoon 'Bession of the trust conference at Cen tral Music hall Saturday and he devot ed the greater portion of the session to an exposition of the evils resulting from the holding of monopolies in pri- If Otis has been telling the truth why has onr army of 30,000 men been cooped up within a dozen miles of Manila most of the time since last February. If Otis I vate hands, and to setting forth his has told the truth why have our forceB I "own Ideas of the methods of eradicate been unable to hold even the towns on I these evils. National control of combinations and the withdrawal of special favors were among his pro* posals. Notice that the standard bearer of the Democratic party was to address the conference drew crowd scarcely smaller than that which surged about tho doors Friday evening when Bourke Oockran and Mr. Bryan were expected to speak from the same platform. The failure of Mr. Bryan to address the conference Friday evening, as It had been previously announced he would do, was the result of a meeting between himself and Bourke Coekran in Central Music hall about 5 o'clock, at which it was decided that each re* quired more time than half the even* ing session would allow. Accordingly Mr. Coekran was given the whole evening and Mr. Bryan took first place on the morning programme. He was present, however, at the evening meet ing and made a brief explanation to the audience of the reasons for the change. Uecommended Congressional Action* Saturday Mr. Bryan took up specifi cally the so-called stock arguments of trust promoters and presented argu ments designed to refute every argu ment in behalf of industrial combina tions. He followed out the assertions against the control of the source of the supply aud the effect of the formation of trust upon employment, with spe cial reference to the commercial trav elers. Then he dealt upon the relation of the tariff to the corporations, fol lowing that with a condemnation of discrimination by railways. In order to destroy trusts and re quire them to make open accounts and eliminate watered stock he recommen ded that congressional action be taken to wipe out trusts. He was Interrup ted by an auditor who queried: "Would that be constitutional?" "I would have congress take such action immediately," replied Colonel Bryan, "and if the supreme court de clares such a law unconstitutional I would have the constitution of the United States so amended that It would give congress the necessary au thority." Power to Curb Trusts. The speaker then dwelt more at length upon the powers which should be reposed in the state and federal governments to curb trusts and pre vent the watering of stock. Mr. Bryan then produced a copy of a circular sent out by the Corporation Trust company of Philadelphia telling the benefits of the new Delaware stock incorporation law over the New Jersey law. A plan of campaign was then mapped out by the speaker to bring trusts under fed eral and state control. Reference to the income tax law was applauded, as well as a passing reference to the Philippine issue, contained in the statement that "A government derives its rights from the consent of the gov erned." The speaker concluded with a strong appeal to humane impulse, comparing the 4,God-made the tniir ihnn» l,„„i ...

The speech of Bourke Coekran Fri day evening was a masterpiece of ora tory and argument. Avoiding the use of the word "trust" Mr. Coekran de clared that many combinations were natural and beneficial, that they did not decrease but increase competition, and that they were to be encouraged rather than stopped. At the same time he acknowledged that combina tions which depended upon any spe cial privilege from the' government were bad and were unnatural and un healthy. He earnestly advocated the withdrawal of bounties and tariffs. He stated that trusts which depended on special privileges from government chartered corporatlons were In the same situation, referring to the Stand ard Oil company and its railway priv ileges. To prevent this aifd to prevent the abuses In legitimate combinations which he acknowledged existed, through the cupidity of the promoters of the trusts he advocated publicly. *as £oted that his adversary did not congratu late the speaker. The committee on resolutions ad journed at noon and will not report any resolutions.

The committee was recon- Panacea for All Ills* Publicity he made a penacea for all the ills the trust is author of, declar ing that if all trust accounts and deals were made public and if railway rates were public and If every owner of one share in a corporation had the right as in England to examine the corpora tion's books, the evils must disappear. He carried his audience with him as he wove his arguments, interspersing humorous illustrations, starting with generally accepted facts, and splicing and weaving In his own dogmatic as sertions one after another. His speech was plausible and pleasing to his hearers and was frequently Interrupt ed by applause and laughter. WAR CLODDS GATHER Extreme Gravity of the Trans* vaal Situation. GREAT EXCITEMENT IN PRETORIA. Young: Doers Are Asking To Be Led Into the Field Immediately—Kruger's Reply Docs Not Accept the Demands of the Drltlsh as a Whole—Preparations for Stout Resistance Proceeding Cuutlnualljr —Afrikanders Will Support Boers. Capetown, Sept. 18— Further tele grams £*om Pretoria confirm the fore* cast of the reply of the Transvaal to Great Britain, which does not accept the demands of the British govern ment as a whole. Great excitement prevails at Pretoria over the conse quences which may ensue. The young Boers are asking to be led Into the field immediately. It 1b impossible to predict what will be the situation aft er the delivery of the reply in London. The feeling here Is that it will be Im possible for the imperial government and undignified upon its part, to again enter upon an Interchange of argu ments. The Royal MunBter regiment has arrived here. SITUATION IS GRATA Rttply of the Transvaal Government Bald to lie UncumprumUliiif. London, Sept. 18.—Indications from all sources point to the extreme grav ity of the Transvaal situation. Pre toria advices emanating from a Boer source say the Transvaal's reply Is un compromising and that preparation for a staunob resistance Is proceeding con tinuously. Another Pretoria special, dated Sep tember 15, says the situation is now re garded as all but hopeless, unless Great Britain retreats from her posi tion. The dispatch adds "The govern ments of the two republics consider the Transvaal should refuse to concede anything further and lt Is believed the Boers will have the support of all the Afrikanders throughout South Africa. Of all the numerous channels through which South African news reaches London not one gives the faintest hope that the Boer reply wjll be favorable, the majority taking the view that war is extremely probable. The First battalion of the Northum berland Fuslleers, 900 strong, and de tachments of the army service corps and ordnance corps shipped on the steamer Gaul at 2 p. m. today from Southampton en route to Natal, amid great enthusiasm. The men appeared to be In splendid condition and openly anxious for fighting. The Fuslleers went direct from Aldershot, but many of the officers of that regiment and numbers of special service officers started from London, receiving at Waterloo Station an enthusiastic send off from the large crowd present. The porters cried: "All aboard for Preto ria," which was taken up by the crowd uproariously. General Sir George Stewart White, V. C., former quartermaster general, who Is going to command the troops In Natal, sails with his staff on the Tantalon Castle from Plymouth. He left London subsequent to the main body of the officers. Buying Supplies In America. Washington, Sept. 18.—The war de partment has been approached by representatives of the British govern ment who wanted to buy at once 1,000 mules for shipment to South Africa for army uses. The department, how ever, bad disposed of all Its surplus stock. The Englishmen will buy the mules in open market In the south and ship them to South Africa as fast as they can be obtained. Great Britain has also recently let several large con tracts for army wagons for South Africa to the principal wagon makers In this country. IOWA DEMOCRATIC ISSUES Will Be Iinperlall.in and the Tru.U, Ao cordliiff to White'. Keynote. Davenport, la., Sept. 10.—The Iowa gubernational campaign opened Thurs day evening with a meeting at the Davenport Grand Opera' House, ad dressed by Fred E. White, of Keokuk county, Democratic nominee. The candidute was introduced by Mayor George T. I-iaker, and was the only speaker of the evening. He addressed himself at length to the subjects of Imperialism and trusts, leaving the subject of finances almost untouched— referred to lu the most guarded man ner. The speaker declared the present Philippine cumpaign one of the black est, most dastardly, of the bloody deeds that disgrace human-kind. The conspiracy of the trusts against the common good, he declared, was only one degree less a crime than armed treason against the state. White concluded by paying attention to the record of Governor Shaw, his opponent In the present campaign. Four-fifths of the address was devoted to imperialism and trusts. These two issues being given prominence makes lt plain that the Iowa campaign on the part of the Democrats will be fought out on that line, and the coin age question suppressed.

When the Smoke of Battle Olaws Awftj Sevan off the Latter Are Found Dead oa the Ground—How the Ontkreak Oeeared —HlUtle Again Patrolling the Streets of the Mining Town—More Trouble May Break Out. Oartervllel, 111., Sept. 18.—Soldier* •re again patrolling the city's streets and guarding the mine property as result of a clash between union miners •nd colored workmen Sunday, in which seven of the latter wer killed and two wounded. Quiet has appar ently been restored, but the authori ties believe an outbreak may take place at any time. The negro miners, infuriated by what they consider the murder of their comrades, threaten to leave the mine inclosure and Invade the town to deal out vengeance to the whites. The union men are also deter mined to finish their work and they vow that they wil continue the war until every black man has left the county. The List of Vletlmi While the shooting ocured at mid day In the principal street of me city, all efforts to learn the names of par ticipants have proved futile. The dead T. J.

All wer literally riddled with shots, Cummlngs received a wound In the head just under the left eye, another In the left side and a third in his right knee. He Is one of three of the men dead who were not killed outright. Floyd was the colored man who ac companied the first contingent of ne groes from the south that atempted to land at Virden, Sept. 25, 1898, and who addressed the Virden people In the public square the evening of Sept. 20. He was also with the contingent that caused the fearful battle at Vir den Oct. 12. If Is claimed he was brought from Pana to Cartervllle with the negroes who are now at work In the Brush mines. Scene and Time of the Battle. The battle occurred shortly after noon. But few people were on the streets at the time, many being at church and others at linner. Two col ored men came into the city In the morning, Intending, as they claimed, to go to the county seat to attend church services, there being no colored church In the city. In front of a meat market were several union miners whose places had been filled at the Brush colliery by the negroes. The feeling toward the negroes in the city has been intense for many weeks and only the presence of the state troops has kept the oposlng parties apart. Words passed between the miners and the colored men left for the mines, claiming as they left that they would return with help, and as their men knew how to shoot and were not afraid they would run the nnlou men out of the city. Thirteen Came In a Body* A few hours later thirteen negroes were seen coming down the highway that leads from the Brush mine to the city. They passed through the city and to the railway station, which Is •ituated In the eastern part of the town, without being molested, or without any hostile demonstration being made. The miners were stand ing in the streets and the blanched faces were more Indicative of danger than wordB. It was a time of Killed In Running Fight. The negroes ran and were pursued by the miners. The colored men started to follow the switch which leads through the edge of the etty and only one block from the business cen ter. Three fell dead, riddled with bul lets from the Winchesters of the white miners. Still the pursuit was conttn lied and when only one block from the police station another negro fell. A title farther on Sim Cummlngs fell mortally wounded. Still the pursuit was made until not 11 negro was In the streets of the city, nil who lived through the few moments of carnage being safe, it was thought, withlu the village of Greenville, which surrounds the Brush shaft. I.ater, however, two of the colored miners were found dead near the shaft. Cummlngs died after being taken to the city hall. Two others. It Is said, received wounds. WEST SIDE. Mrs. Mary Quinette, who has been ly I ing very low with typhoid fever for a couple of weeks, died Saturday evening at half-past eight o'clock, and was burled from the house Sunday after noon, the oRev. Lusk holding brief service with prayer and words of conso lation to those concerned. Mrs. Quin ette was about thirty years of age, and leaves a husband, two little boyB and a baby girl. The husband, with bis little boys, took the early train for Bome point in New York state, where he has a sister living, and the little girl was left to the care of its grand mother, I Mrs. Hines. This is a sad case of the ravages of fever, as it was not quite a week between the death of the little daughter, Daisy, and the mother, but there is an exhaustless store of comfort in the thought that they will be free from every ill that marred their comfort here on earth. I sometimes wonder how any one can look upon death as anything but dark and awful, and al though the psalmist speaks of the valley of the Bbsdow Des Moines, la..
