Extracts from W.
THIS GATHERING STORM.
Tho trailo papers aro beginning to
realize that tho consolidations and
combinations which are now absorb
ing most of tho grout industries of the
country ore hastening the day of anti
trust legislation. The Metal Worker,
whllo making a defense of the now
steel trust, yet sees the possibilities of
legislation which will muke such com
bination impossible It suggests that
the undertaking was "forced by tho
desire to protect existing Interests,
sorloiiBly threatened as they were by
possible warfare, rather than by a
doslre to unload the properties upon
the public nt Inflated prices." It thinks
It sees an advantage In tho trust In
tliut "tho concentration ot power in
tho hands of ono largo consolidation
Is expected to bring about a decided
steadying of tho markets,"
It speaks In a commonplace way of
one of the great evils of tho trust, Bay
ing; "As a competitor, so huge an
organization could develop very dan
gerous strength by waging war In ono
territory and drnwlng the sinews
therefor from uncontested markets."
Tho Metal Worker evidently under
stands the methods employed by tho
trusts-methods which some, strange
to say, seem to regard as legitimate
business. And yet the paper Quoted
cannot refrain from a prophesy of
trouble. It says;
"It will toko clover management on
the part of the consolidation to meet
and brcuk tho force ot aroused public
opinion. Imagination is sure to bo
inflamed by tho colossal undertaking
now about to bo consummated, and
there will be many who aro eager to
fan the flames."
And again:
"It Is certnln that tho new consoli
dation will lend much support to the
anti-trust agitation, and will be its
shining mark. Keen eyes will watch
every move, and unscrupulous dema
gogues and an unbridled yellow press
will distort even tho most trivial In
cident." It will be seen that even the defend
ers of monopoly are conscious thut
tho storm Is gathering. Although
they consider It "unscrupulous" and
"demagogic" for any one to condemn
a trust, yet they are nblo to measure
the force of public opinion when once
It Is aroused and they are fearful lest
tho reign of monopoly may, after all,
bo short-lived.
THE PRESIDENT AN EMPEROR.
The Snnoncr amendment to tho army
appropriation bill vests In tho presl-
dent power and authority which ccn
be exercised only by on emperor. By
voting down the amendments offered,
the republicans placed themselves (n
record ns In favor of tho exercise, of
arbitrary and Imperial power by the
chief executive. No res'-ietlons nro
placed upo.i him nnd no lime limit Id
fixed to his rulo. Ho iu s'ipvomc; he
con appoint whomsoever ha pleases;
ho con vest lcglslotlvo, Jud'clal uivl ex
ecutive power all in one prison, nnd
that person is under no obligation to
obscrvo tho constitution In dealing
with Filipino subjects. And this is
done In tho name of liberty? This Is
the policy of a party which sprang
into existence to apply the Declaration
of Independence to men entirely black!
History presents no Instance of a
transformation so sudden and com
plete. The provisions in regard to fran
chises are of little value, because tho
president must rely upon the repre
sentations of appointees In the Phil
ippines and their statements will be
ex-parte. Only tho men who want
concessions will be heard the Fili
pinos will havo no voice In the mattir.
What advantage Is there In having
tho franchises termlnnto one year af
ter a civil government Is established,
If that government Is to be colonlnl In
character and administered by foreign
ers? . ,
It that provision has any Influence
nt all, It will simply give a powerful
iri-nun nf ennePRslonnires Decuniary 111-
t-vest In postponing the establishment
of civil government, It may stimulate
campaign contributions and lead to
tho establishment of a bureau In the
United States for the dissemination of
literature prejudicial to the Filipinos.
If the republican party Is powerless
to protect the peoplo of the United
States from monopoly, how can It bo
expected to protect the helpless In
habitants ot remote Islands?
In tho campaign of 1900 tho ropubli
, ctmniiniiuiv denied that they had
any imperialistic intentions and their
donlam deceived many, out nere
proof that cannot be disputed. Tho
president is an emperor, and will re
main bo until the republican party re
verses Us policy or until the peoplo
retire that party from power.
TOWNE AND WEBSTER.

Charles A, Towne to Daniel Webster.
The Journal says: ' It is too had tnat

The republican organ plnces a poor
estimate on the intelligence ot uie
American people If it imagines it can

country has not produced an orator
superior to Mr. Towne; lie is logiciu,
scholarly and eloquent. Those who

among the republicans, win aissciu
from the Journal's estimate. If the re

to answer Mr. Towne's speech they
will appreciate his ability as well ns
the weukness of their own cause.

J. Bryan's Paper.
CUBA SHOULD BE FREE,
The action ot the administration In
Insisting that tho Cuban constitution

If tho Cuban representatives refuse to
concedo what the administration de

no right to demand that Culm ahull

HULL ON THE ARMY.
In a recent number of the Saturday
Evening Post Congress Hull of Iowa
undertakes to Justify the now army
measure. Ho began by Baying that the
fight for tho reorganization of the reg
ular army had lasted four yeors and
speaks of "putting the United States
In line with the rest of the world In
the matter of organization of tho mili
tary and of tho government." That Is
a statement which no republican leader
would have made during tho last cam
paign. Tho reader of the nrtlclo Is
disappointed to find no mention mado
ot tho number ot sons Congressman
Hull has among tho commissioned olll
eers of the army. It Is also to be re
gretted that the gentleman from Iowa
did not take tlmo to enumerate among
tho reasons for tho large army tho ne
cessity of protecting the syndicates
which ore being organized to exploit
the Philippine Islands. Being the
president of the Philippine Lumber
and development company Mr. Hull Is
In position to give valuable Informa
tion on this point. A prospectus of
the company, Issued last summer, set
forth the fact that his company had al
ready secured valuable timber conces
sions and explained thnt the lub.ir
problem was easily solved because of
tho abundance of Chinese lubor.
CHRISTIANS IN CHINA.
Tho pnpers aro discussing tho duty
of tho Christian powers In China, and
all sorts of opinions aro being ex
pressed as to what punishments ought
to be permitted nnd what not allu.vcd.
It ought not to be difficult to forntu
Iato a rule. Whatever tho Christian
nations do ought to be dono according
to the customs prevailing at home.
What China does ought to be dono ac
cording to her customs. It la not tho
buslnesB of outsiders to forco their
civilization upon China, but they ought
to set nn example for tho "nstructlon
and enlightenment of tho Chinese.
There Is a suspicion that bouio ot tho
allies, In trying to do like the Chinese,
have done worse,
Senator Allen took occasion to ex
press his own opinion, and, It might
be added, the opinion of the country
also, on Sampson's letter to Secretary
Long. Tho admiral seems to think
that some men are born to "lead men
among the crew," while others are
born to lend tho german at social gath
erings. But tho people at large aro
not yet ready to soy mat a man ot
merit can be excluded from any branch
of the public service because In Jils
youth ho lucked "certnln natural ad
vuntages." nr nil tim mean trleks nlaved UDon a
confiding people, the ono played by th
British government on uie Kinu Am
erican friends who subscribed for the
British war loan Is tho worst. No
sooner does Great Britain get the Am
erican dollars for British bonds than
Great Britain turns around nnd exacts
an Income tax from tho holders ond
takes it out of tho interest.
Admiral Sampson has vindicated the
i,i,,mnt nf those who onDOsed his
promotion over Schley by protesting
ogulnat the promotion ot ensigns on
tho ground that they nre not sufficient
ly uroll ncnnnlnted with "social
graces." Whot the navy needs Is fewer
nion like 8ampson and more commis
sioned men of good, hard American
horse sense.
Senator Jones gave the republicans
on nnnni-tnnlty to redeem their prom
Ises on the trust question, but they
would not even consider the measure
passed lust summer by a republican
house of representatives. And still
some republicans will Insist that their
party is opposed to trusts.
"Tl, !!nltn:1 SllltR will not Set little

through tho cure of a literary lady wh
was a friend ot mine, and who from
mental overwork was on tho verire of
Insanity. After tho failure cf her phy
sician to help her, her husband was
advised to hove her try Dodd's Kidney
Pills, which sho did with gratifying re
sults. She used fivo boxes before she'y
was completely cured, but at the end
of two months' treatment, she was her
own happy, brilliant self once more.
'Feeling languid and worn out my
self, I thought they would perhaps be a
holp to mo, and I am very glad to say
that two boxes made a new woman
of me. I feel ten years younger, am In
the very best of health, and appreciate
thnt It wus entirely through the ubs of
Dodd's Kidney Pills. I give them high
est Indorsement.''
Thoeo coses are becoming very com
mon In CattnraugiiB County, and many
ladles have had experiences similar to
those of Mrs, Deacon and hor friend,
What Dodd's Kidney Pills have done
for these suffering women, they will
do for anyone who gives thorn a fair
trial.
They are 60c, a box, six boxes for
2.50. Buy them from your locil
druggist If you can. If he cannot sup
ply you, send to the Dodd's Medicine
