Mark Hanna says that he 1B in favor
of the trusts: that they are purely busi

kept separate. We wonder what Mark's
idea of the purposes of politics are. It
seems that he is a little anarchistic in
his views. The sooner he is unloaded
from the republican band-wagon the
better for party and people.—Home
