Testimony recently taken before the
Industrial Commission at Washington
revealed the fact that a leading tin plate
factory made a net prollt of 20 per cent.
last year, when the price of tin was $2,00
per box. Since then the company has
sold out to the truBt, and the price of
the same quality of tin has been ad
vanced to-84,65 per box. Great are the
trusts and great is their patron and
protector, the republican party.
Emperor William is visiting in Eng
land this week, and if the dispatches
from Germany Btate the facts, the peo
ple of that country are greatly dis
pleased over the affair. The official
newspapers are thriving to make it ap
pear that the emperor is simply making
a family visit to his grandmother, and
that the trip is wholly devoid of politi
cal significance. This explanation,
however, seems to have had little or no
effect upon the public, and the extracts
from the leading newspapers show ill
The mother of the president of France
now eighty-six years old, it is said, still
manages the farm at Marsanne on
which her son was born, and from
which he went to the neighboring town
of Montelimar, where he was a lawyer
of modest practice when elected to the
office of mayor. She is a typical peas
ant farmer, simple, frugal, and success
ful in the direction of her affairs. She
retains the garb of her youth and clasB.
the plain gown of homespun, and the
white cap with fluted edges and wide
strings. Mme. Loubet has refused to
change her mode of life.
The next two weeks will be the most
anxious period experienced by the
English people during the present
century. If the armies of the two
South African republics should defeat
the British forceB in th6 great battle
which in the near future is inevitable,
the result will be fought with disaster
to Great Britain,not alone in Africa,but
quite likely in Asia as well- And there
is not a justice loving people on the
face of the earth that would not rejoice
to see victory perch on the banners of
the sturdy home defenders of the Trans
General Joubert, the commander of
the Boer forces, was born in Philadel
phia, Pennsylvania. His father was a
Frenchman and hie mother was a Hoi

visited the United States as financial
agent for a company organized in South
Africa, and in 1893 he represented the

The marvelous growth of the circu
lation of The Des Moines Leader has
made it necessary for that great news
paper to add to its mechanical equip
ment a mammoth new GOBS straight
line printing presB, which has a capac
itj of 25,000 papers per hour. ThiB
new presB is the largest and moat
wonderful printing machine be
tween Chicago and Denver, and
will print, fold, paste and deliver,
counted in bundles, papers
any size from eight to twenty-four
pages. The fact that the finest
and largest press in the weBt has I een
installed by The Des UoineB Leader is
llattering proof of the immense popu
larity to which this paper has attained.
The addition of this press giveB The
Leader a total press capacity of 35,000
papers per hour.
Ex- Justice Willard Bartlett, of the
Appellate Divison of New York, recent
ly delivered an address before the Med
ical Association of that state in which
he spoke earnestly on the subject of
Uedical expert testimony. He pointed
out that the paid expert witness is apt
to construe his functions to be those of
an assistant counsel on the side that
employs him. He declared that when
ever this is done "the testimony is par
tisan and of doubtful value." He re
garded it as a violation of medical
ethics, which, he said, should be as
binding as a statute upon every physi
cian. The expert witness, it is true,
haB a scientific teputation to maintain,
and to that extent 1B more creditable
than an ordinary hired witness. But
the fact that he testifies for a wage
paid by one of the parties to the con
troversy certainly tends to Invalidate
his testimony in all honest minds
An Easily Understood Object Lesson
[From the Houston Post.]
Here is an object lesson' which will
not fail to interest a very considerable
number of American people:
Nails in 1898—81.50.
Nails in 1899—84.35.
Increase in wages—10 per cent.
Increase in trust prolits —180 per cent.
Increase in coat to consumer—190 per

The Government's Treasury Depart
ment Helps Wall Street.
To relieve the stringency in the money
market in New York, the secretary of
the treasury has offered to buy 925,000,
000 of government bonds. Russell Sage
is quoted as saying:
"I believe Gage's action saved the
financial world from a disastrous panic.
"No one who has been in touch with
the business enterprises the past few
months can fail to have realized the
stringency of the money market. Beady
money appeared to be extraordinarily
scarce, and those who had it held or de
manded the highest claBs securities be
fore they let go."
When all the facts connected with
Gage's bond sales and bond purchases
are made public aud the net loss to the
people footed up, they will compare un
favorably with the worst work of the
Cleveland administration, and that was

When the train neared Ohievely,
some miles south of Colenso, a Boer

loosened the rails. The attack was
then begun. The engine was reversed,
but, striking the damaged track, two
of the trucks left the rails and were
overturned. Then the object of the
