Last year we increased our

We consider profit margin on

While we do that, Goodyear

St. Paul, Minn., F%t. 4 Mike Gib
bons, Tommy Walsh and Eddie Mc
Goorty held a get together conference
at the Saint Paul yesterday afternoon
for the purpose of endeavoring to
reach terms for a match between the
Phantom and his Oshkosh rival. Both
boxers are eager for another meeting
and the question of terms was the only
question remaining to be settled when
they met.
May Meet for Irish Title.
If he can sign the two star middle
weights Collins is In favor of bringing
them together Feb. 22, but he may
sidetrack this date in favor of March
17. when Mike and Eddie could more
fittingly battle for the Irish as well
as middleweight laurels, both boxers
being dependents of sturdy products
of the ould sod.
McGoorty saw Mike hand out that
artistic trimming to Clabby at Mil
waukee. but still thinks he has an edge
on the Phantom. Eddie says his hit
ting ability more than offset Mike's
skill in their New York meeting and
he is of opinion that it will again.
Mike, on the other hand. Is keen to
have the fans of his own city present
when he fares forth to even up the
score with McGoorty.
Several otheT promoters are after
the bout, and some of them have of
fered glittering terms, but Collins went
into the conference hopeful of landing
the plum.
Another get together conference may
take place in St. Paul or Chicago next
week between Mike Gibbons and
Packey McFarland, who professes to
be eager to tangle with the Phantom
at 145 pounds, at 3 o'clock.
It is known that Gibbons is willing
to take a whirl at Packey. He says
that nobody Is barred as long as the
promoters could offer the money.
Jimmy Johnson of the Madison
Square Gardens Athletic club of New
York has spent a lot of money in rail
road /ares and in telegraph tolls try
ing to clinch this match, for it is one
that he believes would draw the big
Rest crowd that ever saw a ring en
counter in Now York.
Suggests Conference.
He telegraphed Packey at CWeago
yesterday, suggesting a joint confer
ence in either St. Paul or Chicago.
Mike Gibbons says it is purely a
matter of terms with him. He will,
he says, make 145 pounds at 3 o'clock
for McFarland.

Editorial in New York Times: The
lowest earninigs in any quarter of the
existence of the Steel corporation and
the passing of its common dividend
have moral and political significance
surpassing the considerable financial
importance which generally takes first
place in the consideration of the inci
dent. The idea that bigness of nomi
nal cApital gives bigness of power is
shown to be no truer in the case of
industrials than it is of railways, as
had already been demonstrated in a
list of collapses too long to be cata
logued. The billion dollar corporation
and the huge railway combinations ac
quired no power to oppress anybody
or extort anything. At no time have
the Steel trust's prices for its goods
reached the height attained before its
organization. Never were wages so
high as it has paid. Never has the
tone of the trade been better than
under the rule of the enlightened man
In like manner the overcapitaliza
tion of railways has given no power
to underpay labor or to raise rates
charged to shippers. Railways and in
dustrials alike have failed to earn their
dividends, which are seen to depend
upon service Tendered alone. It Is in
terpreted as a siRn of their failure. It
is rather a failure of the campaign
against them, based upon wrong ideas

of their e\il powers and o£ the merits
of dissolving them. It is now clear
that the promise of benefits to follow
the correction of evils attributed to
them cannot be Tedeemed. Wages will
not be raised. Prices will not be re
duced, either by industrials or by rail
ways, unless wages are reduced. If
the regulation of industrials by volun

as the ever-downward regulation of
railway rates by commission has just
failed, under the irresistible control of
public opinion, the result will be both
lower wages and scarcity prices for

It is true? that the demonstration is
not complete. It stopped just short of
the capstone in the case of the rail
ways. It may still be stopped short
of completion in the case of the in
dustrials. As in the case of the Tail
ways, the decision lies with the peo
ple. They have been taught, and they
allowed themselves to believe that
those who did not know would and
could produce by law better conditions
than the captains of industry had pro
duced. We are at the beginning of
the em which was to suspass in its
blessings the decade which had \een a
carnival of financial wickedness.
There was depression and distress, but
it would be a" mistake to exaggerate
them. The work of the organizers has
not been undone altogether. The
country has only stumbled. It is not
prostrate. It is preposterous to sug
gest that enterprise is dead and can
not be revived. The only question is
"whether it can be revived better by
going ahead or by reaction.
In short the era of the wise and pru
dent Is at hand, after the delirium
of the dTeamers of wealth and givers
of blessings with other people's taxes.
These ought to be self-evident Iruths.
The painful demonstration ought to
have been unnecessary. But the folly
of the financiers who held that we
were in a new era when the old truths
did not count had to be succeeded by
the folly of those who fancied that
there was no reason for the want
which they would remedy by votes
and laws. At the time of its great­
