The Jury at Find lay, O., reached their verdict In the Standard Oil case to a* accompaniment of hymn-sjngr- This wan partly to kfcep them selves awake and partly to promote jfood nature under the severe test of thlrty-Uvo ronKerutive hours oif de liberation. It la reported that the singing was entirely reverent and de- votional. They have s«t «. tune which Hf «,? '•M*' many voices throuahoat ttU' country will continue. Thl? trial Is only In a lower court irom which the Standard OH Co. takes .m appeal, and Intend* to carry tho case to the United States supreme ourt. This verdict Is therefore only victory In a preliminary skirmish. Thla content also limited to the *tate of Ohio, having been brought un der the Valentine law of that state. But thi«' \Vi\v imitation to one state given ,to tfcM Wolr a national signi ficance. 4 Jf%" it lias been urged by Mr. Bryan and others that the policy of the presi dent against the monopolies erred liv taking into, H&e jurisdiction of., it he United States, matters that1 belonged: to the responsibility of the several sattes. It Is argued that it would weaken the legal and moral power of the individual states to take the task of curbing the monopolies Into tlie bands of the central government. Tho facts are that the power of each state in this matter Is gt-eatly increased by the co-operation of the national gov ernment. A monopoly like Standard Oil Is a violation of commerce ^e twee,n states, and of the Inw.s of the the different states in that part of its trade which Is carried on within the limits of a particular state. The field of regulation by the national government is one, and that of the utale department another, in the con trol of this and other monopolies ji^ companies seeking to become monop olies. The work of the central gov ernment In no sense encroaches up •w the privileges or responsibilities of any state, but on the contrary aroiisoflj Jts (energies against fche oppressive combination and offers every hope of success wlthlt^ the sphere of the state's activity. Ott the other Jiand such efTorts as Ohio, for example, is making greatly to assist the endea vors of the federal government. Nei ther in Interstate commerce nOr i» commerce- within a state I hat follows the lead of the president can a com pany. however powerful, expect to continue Its lawless practices with impunity. It cannot make the Sev eral states asylums against the na tional government, nor the nation an asylum from the laws of the different states. Thus the determined course of Ohio, resulting In the Findlay ver dict, Is a matter of national import ance for the very reason that it is limited to a single state. The case of the state of Ohio against the Standard OH Co. will now drag its slow procedure from courf: to court. It would be gratifying if sentence could be immediately execut ed, of heavy fine, or of imprisonment which may be imposed under the Val entine law. But the retrials will be of great educational value to the peo ple of the whole country. The law lessness and oppression of this mo nopoly will be disclosed in new lights, t.nd Its efforts to escape from jus tice will be seen to be trickery, false hood and evasion. Better than any articles In popular magazines will be the publication of facts irreputably established In courts of law. It will be well if the Valentine law. is test ed by the supreme court of the Uni ted States. Such a review of it must be of large benefit to all the states in their measures against com panies similar to Standard OH. Meanwhile much has been accom plished by -the Findlay verdict, of benefit not only to the state In which the case Is being tried, but also in the. country generally. C. D. Cham berlain, secretary of the National Pe troleum association, expresses confix den^e that the decision at Findlay will prove a boon to the independent oil business, not only In Ohio, but all over the country. "Mr. Lamprecht of th« National Refining Co. says: "Transportation companies will see the handwriting on the wall and will be tnore than ever cautious about en tering into agreements with the Stan dard Oil Co. or any other corporation. The findlay decision will prove a mighty help toward the elimination of gross trade evils." The testimony brought out at Findlay will assist the United States government In its pro ceedings against the oil monopoly, and thus do nation and state assist one another In the great commercial fight of the century. The enterprise of Editor Smart of The Optic should be endorsed by the citizens of Mlnot, in giving him a moat hearty support, on his securing the afternoon report of the Associat ed Press for his enterprising evening daily. c-hmAmi. A French writs* attended the last lard mayrtr'* pkfade in London and was vastly impressed with the ap pearance of the coachman who drove the newly chosen executive's aarriage. "Nobody who has not seen him can Imagine him," says the writer. "He is as round as an apple, as round as a jball, or rather as round as the earth itself. He is rosy and chubby of face and his body Is as formibable para- 1 dox. And this astonishing man sits enthroned with a mondrous dignity midway between earth and sky. His lip is scornful and he heeds not the remarks of the crowd. He sees or hears nothing but his horses." ffHB FAHGO FOBTTM AOT DAILY REPUBLICAN/' WEtfTF!STAY EYflXiyrt, OCTOBER 31. 1006 Wise and Otherwise Talking About laying in the winter's supply of fuel and the way coal was handled In the days of old, before the office of city weigher was created in this city, several friends of George L. Townes, fornrerly W this city—now editor of the Pu^ullup Herald—were telling a good one on him when In the office of Morton ik On a certain day Mr. Townes in structd one of the teamsters to go to car No. so and so and load up a ton of coal.. The driver, upon arriving at the car, found it locked and re turned with an empty load to get in structions as to what lie should do. He drove by accident, upon the scale in the yards owned by the firm and be fore h(* dismounted from the seat to inform Mr. Townes of the situation as he found it, Mr. Townes walked out of the office and said to the driver: "George, you are a little heavy: throw ofT a couple of shovels full." The driver was surprised and he had to take several glances at the interior of the bed of his wagon to really see whether or not he had any coal on the wogon. He finally told Mr. Townes and the-"latter, without a smile, said: 1 "Well, there must have been ft mis take in the scalps, for I thought you Wad a load«V i S' They tell a good un on Digby Hell, who was here »ast week lh The Fdu •'ation of Mr. 'Plpp. The next evening, after a hard day's work, he desired to take a bath and. iiiling the tub with warm water, re clined full length in it. He was tired and under the soothing influence of the warmth, fell asleep. He. awoke with a start, dreaming that Sioux had wan dered from the reservation and had seized him by the hair and were about to scalp him. To his surprise, he could not lift his head. Then he es sayed to move and found that the soles of his feet were glued to the end of the tub and that Jite limbs were held to the bottom in the same manner. Even liis arms were loosened from the sides of the tub with difficulty. lie managed, after suffering a deal of pain and parting from small patches of cuticle, to extricate his feet, legs and body, but the tub clung tightly to his hair aud he had to howl for help.

Bell watched ihe dusky redskins and In order to get a laugh out of them' remarked about the beautiful Indian summer, but there was never a sign of recognition from tile Indians. Finally, all the aborigines went to sleep and snored through the rest of the show. To add to Hell's misery, the company, was late in getting into The Dalles, and the final curtain did not ring down until after midnight. Then, according to union rules, the stage bunds could not carry out the scenery, since they are allowed to work only between the hours of 7 artd 12 for a night show.

One of the principal suggestions was that of building up a marching club such sp? are In prominence throughout the east, let all the young men interest themselves in politics and build up a strong organization that will attract attention not only In this section of the country but throughout the entire country. There is enough good ma terial here to build up such an or ganization and the promoters should be encouraged In this undertaking.

The meeting was one of the largest political meetings held in that section and the talk ot' the senator was well received. The speaker urged republicans not to be misled by the democratic minority in overturning Ihe structure of the republican party In the state.
