THE ADVOCATE AND NEWS.
1837. Amrlcan standpoint, but it haa certain obvious advantages over the more nefar ious art of assassination. Boston Advertiser: Recent decisions of the United States Supreme court have tended to curtail quite largely the power which the Interstate Commerce Commis Blon has attempted to arrogate to Itself during recent years. These decisions are making It clear that the functions of the Interstate Commerce Commission Is i hlefly executive, and does not command that Judicial quality which the commis sion Itself baa attributed to its office. The Supreme court appears to regard the Federal courts as entirely competent to deal with questions of the violation of the interstate commerce act, and It is re eistlng Bteadlly the evident attempts of the Interstate Commerce Commission to perform the functions of such court. Chicago Chronicle: Down In Ken tucky, where all sorts of odd things hap pen, a Methodist preacher who held some theological views at variance with those of his congregation, was aroused at midnight and' escorted out of town by three of his flock armed with shotguns. This method of adjusting doctrinal dif ferences Is somewhat drastic, but It has its advantages. It saves the scandal and annoyance of church trials, for one thihg, and it conduces to liberality upon the part of the pastor. For he would be an Inflexible dogmatist Indeed who would attempt to enforce his views upon a congregation given to the shotgun as a controversial weapon,. The Kentucky Methodists may prove to be the pioneers in a new scheme of church unity. Detroit Journal: Few of the small holders of gold mine stock ever realize anything except the loss of their money. The mines that are any good are bought up by rich men, who can afford to put money Into developing schemes and many of these fail to strike a fairly good thing. An occasional poor man gets on the inside and we hear all about his splendid realization of a fortune. But we never hear anything about the ill lucks of the thousands who put their hard money Into mines. The recent re vival of the gold-flnding Industry ought not to be checked up against the return of prosperity. Back of it is a well understood purpose to swindle, and those who buy stock In ninety-nine out of a hundred of them will simply burn their money. Keep out of the "gold mine cinch," even though your best friends advise you to buy. Springfield Republican: Somebody writes to the New York Evening Post from New Hampshire that he had driven clear across the State without seeing a beer sign or barrel or other notice of liquor being for Bale, and "he concludes that prohibition is a hard and fast fact in that region. But a New Hampshire citizen responds that under the State law the exposure of a sign or other ad vertisement of liquor for sale consti tutes prima facie evidence of the com mission of the offense of liquor selling, and he pertinently asks whether it was to be expected that liquor sellers would thus provide openly the means of their own conviotlon. It Is stated that liquor Is sold in more than fifty places in Con cord, and yet to all appearances the city la as dry as dust. The case is inter esting as showing how anybody who keeps his eyes shut tight may be able to see that prohibition prohibits. New York Tribune: Sumatra comes into the field as a producer of petro leum, its product crowding into the mar kets of the East In competition with that of the American and Russian wells. Other Islands of the Indian archipelago also show signs of like deposits, prom ising to afford the basis of an Oriental Standard Qil Company to battle with the Occidental one and its Russian rival. But the world is wide and there is room enough for all of them. As there are limitless deposits of this precious sub stance in Siberia and China, and as it is found in varying abundance all over the world, there is little reason to appre hend that the supply will give out for a long time to come. The Sumatra fields open a new industry in that region of the globe of widest promise, surpassing the traffic in ivory, apes, and peacocks, for which it was celebrated some thou sands of years ago, or any of its more modern lines of production. M&thew Marshall, in New York Sun: What all clear-sighted observers sus pected and feared has become a cer tainty. The victory of the gold standard in 1896 has shown Itself to be indecisive not only In form but also in the number of votes by which It was achieved. Not till the last moment, indeed, did the Republican leaden consent in 1896 to admit the mention of gold In the party platform, and they explicitly avowed their willlngneM to accept ilver as a monetary standard ' Jointly with gold, provided the other commercial nations of the world would do the same. Fortu nately the Democrats came out squarely for the free coinage of 6llver at the ratio of 16 to 1, "without the aid or consent of any other nation," and thus forced the voters to choose between the Imme diate adoption of the silver standard and a future adoption of It under hypo thetical conditions. How many votes were gained for the Republican candi date in 1896 by the express promise of the party to maintain the gold standard only until and international bimetallic agreement could be obtained, and by the obligation it apparently assumed to ac cept silver as soon as the effort to reach an agreement definitely failed. It is Im possible to say, but their number must have been considerable. Now that the event In view has happened, and Eu rope, under the lead of Great Britain, has refused to make the agreement to the promotion of which the St. Louis convention pledged itself, the Repub licans must come out unequivocally, either for silver or for gold, and If, as is most probable, they come out for gold, the question whether the majority of void's will sustain them in doing so is one which will be answered, if not by the elections of 1S!)S, then by those of 1900.
