Nlmw at th Tran-.MIourl (ygrM lu i Uiuilwr, I sua, Tho upiiolnttnunt of ex-Governor tilinw of Iowa iih secretary of tho treasury gives liuportunco to tho views which lie has expressed on tho money question, He was onu of the speakers on thu gold side when tho money question was discussed at tho truiis-Mlssourl congress, Sept. LI, 14 and 13, 1KHH. In tho course of his tpcech on that occasion ha inndu tho statement that neither gold nor silver wus mentioned lu the constitution. The Hcptembcr number of tho Nu tloual Blmetulllst, edited by ex-Con-grcHimiuii Hai ti no and published at Washington, contained ft ciuihIIu criti cism of Mr. 8 haw's speech, The fol lowing extract is taken from page 31'3: "Perhaps the Ilk-litest, most flippant and theroforo tho most disappointing speech on tho gold side wus that of tiovcrnor Shaw of Iowa. There was literally nothing In It, and It showed tho unwisdom of putting men forward as advocates merely because they hup- pen to hold high olllclul positions, lie denied that it was necessary for tho gold men to provo anything. Tho gold standard was an established fart, ho Hiild, unci heuco It was for Its oppo nents to do tho proving. Governor Shaw manifested his knowledge of tho constitution by declaring that it did not mention cither gold or silver, for which he was sharply called down hy Mr. Townu and Mr. L, 11. Wcllcr, and n section of thu constitution was read to him." Mr. Shaw's error Illustrates tho shal lowness of many of those who advo cate the money question from the financier's side. Mr. Shaw Is a money lender uml It Is foo often assumed that u man who handles money must ncccs surlly understand tho principles that govern the money question. It Is a falso assumption, A muu may kuow whose namo Is good on a nolo, ho may know how to keep books, and may even understand how largo a reserve should bo kept on hand, and yet be Ignorant of tho sciencu of money. It Is often tho cuse that tho small flnun- clor leans on the largest ono ho knows, who In turn, leans on some larger ono, and so on ad Infinitum, Kowlcdgo of tho money question comes from tin un derstanding of the principles Involved, not from tho possession of tho wealth or from tho counting of dollars. It Is to ho hoped that Governor Shaw hair inudo a careful examination of the con stitution hIiico his Omaha speech. Tim Triiwt Imnui'. Down with tho trust.! is no longer tho simple demand of tho Populists and ills-contended. Tho trust Issue will not down.

There has boon no consequent Im provement In the efficiency of govern ment. The lurger pay has apparently brought on a larger rottenness, Pervvnlon of (iovrrninont. The government has become a gov ernment of the trusts, for the trusts and by the trusts. Loot has taken the place of liberty. Tho chief end of the administration appears to ho no longer the peoplo's weal, hut their wealth. A latter day Caesar sits In Washington's Brat, and, not daring to piny the role of bold and open usurper, enacts the petty tyrant, rebukes and reprimands high officers and is as testy In temper hs Termagant.

Unquestionably President Roosevelt was Justified In hesitating about ac cepting the Carnegie gift of $10,000,- Ouo of nteel trust bonds for tho univer sity extension scheme on the ground that It would placo the government In the position of being a party to an unlawful combine. But why doesn't tho president Instruct his attorney general to inquire into the steel trust's methods as an evldenco of good faith? If the trust Is so wicked that the gov ernment cannot countenance It as an associate why not, in the Interest of tho people, nuiko It live up to the laws?

President McKlnley did his best to keep faith with the people. But the trusts have become more powerful than their creators. They refuse to keep tho promise of the Dlugleys and McKlnleys and Insist upon their pound of flesh. Danger of Filipino Immigration. The Republican newspapers are as suring us thnt according to tho recent decision of the supreme courts, the Philippines are as much a part of the United States as Missouri or New York and that the citizens of that country nre at liberty to come hore at pleasure.
