This is the program which has
been agreed upon in conference be
tween the republican leaders and the
president. It has sense on its side
The designation republican which
the congressional committee carries
means exactly what it says. It was
the republican party which carried
the country for congress and presi
dent in 1908. The party has taken
the country at its word. Thus far we
have had a republican policy. A few
men masquerading under the repub
lican name have impeded the party.
They have joined with the democrats
in attempts to defeat the program of
the party which elected them.
Through the aid of these men the
democrats are counting on winning
some seats in the house in the elec
tion thls year. The republican con
gressional committee cannot reason
ably be expected to aid in this con
None but republicans will be put
on guard in this exigency. The is
sues which are before the country are
large and the people by their votes
in 1906 said that they wanted these
ssue to be settled along republican
It Svas a republican anjf npt
a mugwump convention'which riom
inated Taft. Republicans and not in.
surgents elected him. The men who
bear the republican label have a ma
jority of forty-seven in the house of
representatives,. In a chamber of
391 members this margin is not very
broad. It is broad enough, however,
if every member who appealed for
republican support during the cam
paign of 1908 carries out the pledge
which he made in accepting the re
publican candidacy. On a narrower
margin than this the republican
party has often made a great record.
The republican leaders are attempt
ing to give the American people the
sort of government which they asked
at the polls a year and a third ago.
If the element who entered congress
under false pretenses prevent the
republicans from meeting the peo
ple's expectations the people will
know just wbere to lay the blame. If
the ten or fifteen representatives and
senators who were elected as repub
licans, but who vote as democrats,
expect aid from the republican con
gressional committee this year they
are unreasonable. This is not what
the republican committee is here for.
Regardless of the mask which he
carried at his election the man who
votes democratic must.be classed as
a democrat. Only two parties are
recognized in our political scheme to
day These are the democratic and
the republican. Our politics takes
no account of hybrids. The man who
opposes republican measures is prac
tically a democrat. In the campaign
of 1910 no democrat need apply for
aid from the republican congression
al committee.

For County Judge.
I am a candidate for the republican nom
ination as county judge at the primary elec
tion. I respectfully solicit the support of
republican voters.
St. Louis Globe Democrat: In the
campaign of 1910 the republican con
gressional committee will give out
republican literature, and not insur
gent, literature. The committee will
not oppose insurgents in the primar
ies and will not work against them
at the polls if they receive the nom.
illation. But before and after the
primaries, in giving out campaign
documents, the committee will con
fine itself strictly to documents
v/hich bear the stamp of republican
regularity. If the insurgents want
literature of their own complexion
they will have to supply it them
The advent of the spring season
at the first of March is something
unusual in this region. March is us
ually a cold and blustering month,
and while there is not any long con
tinued cold weather, there is little of
spring flavor in the month. This
year, however, the first of the month
saw mild and pleasant weather, with
a succession of days when the ther
mometer was above freezing, and
the snow disappeared as rapidly as
we might expect ordinarily in April
weather. The river, yielding to the
rush of water from the melting
snows farther west and the volume
of water from the tributaries of the
Missouri, has broken at an earlier_|_petitive,
daie than for a great many years
The soil is getting warm- and the
frost is disappearing froni-'ftfe" upper
surface so that farm work will be
possible in a few days, it the present
weather continues. Trees are bud
ill a good many, instances, and
rjy and vines show the ef
fects of the warm, spring-like weath
er. There are those who gloomily
predict that this is but a temporary
warm period, to be compensated for
by colder weather, later on, and this
may be so, but it may be true on the
other hand that we are. to have an
exceptionally* early and long contin
ued spring season. This is the bet
ter view to take of the season, and
it is as easy to take as the ,other.
Sam Clark started to carry out his
threats to expose the iniquity of
Minot'a business and other leaders
last Saturday—but the spring weath

it in his heart to say anything mean

Washington, Mar. 14.—The final
fight for the dissolution of the
"Standard Oil" began this afternoon
before the supreme court of
United States, when John G. Mil

hours in its defense. He will con
clude tomorrow.
The remainder of the day will be
devoted to the second step in the'
great contest, the reply of Frank
Kellogg, on the part of the govern
The hearing of the sutt against the
Standard Oil attracted to the court
room lawyers and spectators from aft"
sections of the country. Members of
both houses of congress forsook
their respective, chambers to hear
what was to be said in the review
of the decree of the circuit court for
the eastern district of Missouri, dis
solving the Standard Oil Co. of New
Jersey as a conspiracy in restraint of
trade and as a monopoly in violation
of the Sherman anti-trust act.
Milbnrn's Address.
The greater part of Mr. Milburn's
address to the court consisted of a
review of the growth of the Standard
Oil, with the object of laying the,
foundation for the claim that the
corporations entering into the reor
ganization of the Standard Oil Co. of
New. Jersey in 1899 were non-com
because for many years they
had been under a so-called common

the business of the Standard Oil Co.
and explained how It had grown, ac-
cording to his .conception. He said
large factors in thig growth were the
building of pipe lines "Which any
body bad a right to «mild"-as if be
desired-ijt, the. building of refineries
and the extending of the marketing
facilities throughout this country and
the entire.
Foreign Competition.
"We compete abroad with great
corporations" he said, "That are
protected by their governments and
compelled to combine so that they
may be powerful. We have been
able to meet them because of our

tered upon a discussion of the Sher

that there mere, method of organiza
tion as a conspiracy to monopolize
and had not considered the alleged
monopolistic conduct, he felt an em
barrassment about discussing wheth
er they violated the law.
"You discuss them in your brief,
do you not?" queried one of the jus
"Oh, yes," was the response.
After a discussion of the general
meaning of monopoly he reverted to
the alleged monopolistic conduct of
the Standard Oil.
Not in Restraint of Trade.
Milburn said he did not believe
that the corporation was in restraint
of trade, in view of the "Common
ownership." It had never restrained
the liberties or capital of any one
who had entered into it nor any one
who was its competitor, he asserted.
Instead of being a monopoly, it was
urged by Mr. Milburn, that the
amount of business it was doing was
Justice Harlan asked Mr. Milburn
if he would call an organization of
men to buy all the coal lands in
Pennsylvania a conspiracy in re
the straint of trade and a monopoly.
"The question you put is one diffi
cult of solution" responded the coun
sel. He explained to the court that
he was really getting "Out of his line
of business" in. discussing monopo

Justice White.
"Well, the Sherman law is very In
teresting" observed Mr. Millburn.
"Napoleon complained that the laws
did not lend themselves to the imagi
nation but he had never read the
Sherman anti-trust act."
Finally Mr.' Milburn took up the
charges of monopolistic conduct as
alleged to have been shown by trans
portation discrimination. He declar
ed the idea that the railroads
throughout the country would dis
criminate in favor^of a business that
afforded only..hilf of. one per cent
of the total traffic, was preposter
ious. He said the government cries
of tremendous discriminations in
favor of the Standard Oil refining
points and against the independent
refining points.

said, that it had to be more virtuous
than most corporations.

the court he would conclude his re
