Outrageous Attempts Made By Monled Men to Influence Legislation Fow ler Currency Bill Probable Presidential Candidates. Special to the A nl morel to. Washington. Feb. S8. Since the ways that aro dark anil th trleks that ar vain as praotlcod by the trusts of tho country have been ex posoil by William Randolph Hearst, by" tho publication of the tologram sont by Rocketellor's man Archibald to Senator Matthew Stanley Quay of Pennsylvania, tho word outrage has como Into common uso In tho capital of the nation. Tho word means the amo thing when used by all, but It Is used from many standpoints. The prosldont thinks It an otitrago that nnybody should send senators pf tho United Statos a tologram to Inlluonco lORlslatlon that Is aimed at thorn. Tho senators think It an outrage' that anybody should havo discovered that a telegram had boon sont to an honorable senator, also an otitrago that any papor should havo printed It, thoroby brlngiug that honorable body Into dlsropute with tho vulgar rabblo and the hoi pollol of tho coun try. Tho real outrage, howover. Is that a numbor of so-called honorablo senators of tho United Statos should havo rocolvod tolograms dictating to them how they should voto on any subject of legislation, and that, so far, not ono man has risen In his placo. on tho floor of tho scnato and mention ed tho fact and demanded an Investi gation. To this complexion It has v como at last, that a trust magnate can, .',vlth Impunity, Insult tho greatest do- llborativo body. In Uio world or any mcmbor thoreof. When will It ond, and whoro will It end? It Is up to tho people. If thoy llko this sort of thing thoy can continue tho Republi can party In powor and thoy will got M a surfolt of It. Although tho house has agreod to consider the Fowlor currency bill at this session of congross. It will never become n law. The edict hath gone forth, from tho powers that be that the only currency bill that shall be como a law at this seesion Is the Al drlch bill, which Is In the naturo of a substitute for the Fowler bill and gives tho gold trust and tho. banks of the count! y a tighter cinch on tho people han even tho Fowler bill.

This and the Philippine currency bill will bo about all the currency legislation at 'this sosslon of congress. The demoorats, aided by a few republicans whose con sciences were not as good as new, be cause they had been nel some, com pelled the Republicans in the house to pass a bill giving the Philippine is lands the same currency as we have In this country, thus treating tHem as a part of this country and not as a colony to be exploited and looted; but when the bill reached tlw Republican senate they smashed It-and sent It lmck to the house with the same mon ey system as was originally Intended Lthey should have by the republican house committee. In other words, It is a system that will give the exploit ers and the looters the beat of It and rob the poor Filipinos. This is a riot of rapaclt.' and the Republican slogan Is: "What feel, Ulll. what t'eol." The great Grosvenor of Ohio, the mouthpiece of the McKInley admin istrations, the member of the commit tee on rules In the house, through whose hnnds go nil the legislation, passed by that body and who has boon the Republican oraclo, tho statistician and political prophot and Bcor and as Champ Clark calls him tho "stud- bug of nrlthmotlc," has como to grlof. T!'c Republican idol is shattered, and its earth star fled. The lmmaculato and white-soulod Grosvonor has fallen from his nltitudlnous perch, and ho popped like a painted bladder. Ho has been caught pulling trust magnates', logs In tho most approved and latest fashion. Grosvonor com piled a book called "Tho Book of tho Presidents" and ho entorcd.Into an arrangement with a book agent to soli them and In doing so Grosvenor wrote lottcrs of introduction for his mnn Friday to all tho big trust folks importuning thorn to pay his book and tolling thorn to malto out checks paya bio only to his ordor. Of courso ho got rotums. Ho hns boon for years serving tho trusts and why should thoy not reciprocate? A Now York nowspapor exposed tho wholo game and published a facsimile lottor from Grosvonor to one of the big trust magnates of tho country, nlso facsim ile checks, ono' from J. I'iorpont Mor gan for $1,000 nnd one from tho sec retary of the treasury, Shaw, for $100. The book really was worth about a dollar and a half, but these checks were In the nature of a present to tho sjajesman from Ohio in. recogni tion ofvhlsInvluable servlcea.to the party of trusts and combinations, one from the blggost duck In the trust puddle and one from the man win loans. money to tho 'trusts' banks wfth C.

There was some talk in the press of the IOflst before the Inst stroke, and Grosvenor rushed Into print and denied the whole thing and said he hnd nevor written a letter to any on asking them to subscribe to his book, and that he had placed the whole thing In the hands of an agent who as to pay him a royally on tho Ales. It was then thnt the newspaper came out with the facsimile letters and checks and It squelched Grosvenor nnd si lenced his batteries. He has not open ed his head since. He has nothing to say. Ho has been caught with the goods on him. The trusts' mngnatee of the country olther havo worked a film Ham game on the president of the United States, nnd no ono accuses him of being a fool, or olse ho is In lenguo with the trust magnates to fool the people nnent the recent so-called anti-trust legisla tion. , Tho inside history of the telegrams sent to the Republican senators by trust magnate peremptorily ordering thorn to stop all anti-trust legislation, shows a queer condition of affairs In the higher councils of tho Republican party. Whon tho Republican leaders fottnd that tho Democrats looked with disdain upon tho so-callod anti trust legislation that tho Ilopubllcau loadors and tho trust magnatos had concoctod, and would not say a word ganst It, they feared tho rosult of this silonco on the minds of the votors. Somothlng had to bo dono to make it appear that the trusts woro bolng curbed, and the job was put up that Rockofollor should telegraph orders to stop all anti-trust legislation, and ono of those tolograms was shown to tho prosldont. Ho mado public tho fact that those tolograms woro b'onlg sont. In fact, ho sont for tho repre sentative of tho associated press to toll him about thorn and Immediately it was announced by tho administra tion press that horo was ovldonco of tho trust-busting 'naturo of tho legis lation. As I said In a former lottor, tho trusts now aro Jubilant becauso they aro awnro of tho uttor worthlossnoss of tho legislation so far as trust curb lug is concerned. Tho peoplo will havo an opportunity to wltnoss tho working of tho anti-trust legislation enacted at this session by the repub licans bofore tho election of 1001, nnd If they llko that kind of nntl-trust legislation then thoy will voto to ro- talu the Republican party in power nnd continue to pay tribute .to the trusts.
