GOVERNOR SHAW AT ST. LOUIS. Governor Shaw foil into a nest of old Btyle democrats and populists in attend ing' the St. Louis anti-trust convention —those of the typical kind who swing bludgeons at "hydra-headed monsters" that exist most painfully in populistic Imaginations. His address was appar ently an impromptu one, inspired by the character of the talk he had listened to before rising to express his opinions and it shows him to be master of keen satire in uncovering the diverse effect of trust legislation in the states repre sented by governors in this convention. He said he felt sure he was politician enough to draft a law that would drive out all trusts, yet he admitted he was not statesman enough to draft a bill which would compel their everlasting exit providing they are determined to stay. The purpose to be accomplished Is that of making a wise discrimination in order to rout out the guilty and not harm legitimate enterpri as "to hit if it be a deer be a calf." One of his best shots was that in which he said: "The remedy suggested by implication in the two speeches in the forenoon session, that of the repeal of all tariff provisions and through the free coinage of silver, would in my opinion effectually break the back of every trust in the United States. It wouid accomplish this much in the same way that the fire in a wheat field temporarily destroys the Canada thistles, but I have learned from obser vation that these pests will spring up His address brought down upon him the wrath of the populistic element, who scored him for his "facetiousness." The resolutions adopted were a practi cal endorsement of Bryan's plan, pro posed at Chicago,- which has been se verely criticised because of its unwise restraints or. interstate traffiel. SAVING A PENNY. One of the duties which a prudent man believes in and practices more or less, as his means will permit, is that of regularly laying aside a penny for a rainy day. The prosperous era now be ing enjoyed by all enforces the lesson of saving, and the lesson is being heeded too, as the figures will show. The recently published statistics concerning the savings banks of the United States prove this. According to these figures there are 979 savings institutions in the United States with depositors number ing 5,."S5.000 and deposits amounting to the stupendous total of $2,065,000,000. The savings banks of Great Britain have deposits amounting to $780,000,000 publish a description of a magnificent palace that was soon to be erected In the capital city and suspended In the nil' by means of balloons. This piece of satire so directly pointed to the hotel scheme that it was hugely enjoyed and had a rather quieting effect on the doc tor's verbosity. The sequel came when "the mountain labored and brought forth a mouse." The "Aborn" hotel was built, but it never startled anybody by its magnificence, although it would have been considered a creditable structure if it had not been preceded by so much fustian. EDITOR PAYNE'S REJOINDER. Editor Payne, of the Nevada Repre sentative, who is one of the lieutenants in charge of the Cummins campaign, still thinks that the T.-R. is in error in its guess as to the status of the sen atorial controversy. In reply to our estimate of last Saturday the Repre sentative says: "The T.-R. republishes its list of as signed counties, giving Gear 62 votes and Cummins 50, with a dozen doubt fuls unassigned, and challenges us to show the errors. To do so would sim ply be to pit our own Information against the T.-R.'s with respect to men who would undoubtedly refuse to fur nish either of us with evidence that would satisfy the public and the T.-R. knows that such a controversy would be profitless. We believe that the T. R.'s statement of the situation is made in absolute good faith and is in most cases fair and correct, but that in quite a number of cases it is utterly at fault and that these cases are sufficiently numerous to vitiate all the inferences that would naturally be drawn, and that further, these errors are due to lack of familiarity with the status in the several legislative districts." We are glad that Brother Payne gives us credit for absolute good faith, for one endowed with ordinary sense and possessed of a reasonable amount of information, judging from that standpoint, can be expected to come about as near to a correct guess as any one. However, time will tell, and we are confident that our estimate will survive the test. We would like to see Editor Payne's honest alignment of counties, though, as the Des Moines pronunciamentos have been too pre posterous to deserve notice. A SCHOOL FOR SERVANTS. The problem of securing an adequate supply of competent servant girls is one that is a constant source of annoy ance to many a city, and it is growing more pronounced in these days of woman's "emancipation," when the es—to so aim members of the gentler sex are invad uid miss if it ing many avenues of employment hitli- erto monopolized by men. It may be that girls are responsible for turning a cold shoulder to the housekeeping de partment, but aren't mothers more to blame for it, if "blame" is the word that may be properly used, than daughters, who, in the formative period, are creatures of parental am bition? They are in fact "molded" to suit mothers' views. Nearly all moth ers are ambitious (and worthily) that their girls shall receive an education and anxious that they shall select tli again as soon as the conditions are fa- best and most approved avenues of life, vorable to the growth of another crop of wheat." and hence they do not train them for domestic service as they might. But this "long felt want" is being met. A school for servants has been op eration in Syracuse, N. Y., from which good results are constantly being achieved. Competent instructors art engaged and scholarships are issued. Writing of it in Ainslee's Magazine for October, Helen C. Candee says: "The school opened with three classes of sixteen each and many on the waiting list, and the pupils were from all 1 classes, the scholarship girls, many of whom were clerks in shops, young ladies of society, one or two Uberal minded housekeepers and many am bitious women who were working at domestic service and who regard- the .$10 course as a good business invest ment. This mixture of classes would make trouble if a wise head and a kind hand did not do the guiding. As it is in Syracuse, proficiency in the class counts and not social standing, and the two great divisions of housekeepers and house helpers smooth over a word that has unjustly become a t"rm of ignominy. So long as the servility of those of France have $6",2,000,000 those domestic labor is pronounced it is im of Russia have $198,000,000 and those of possible to secure operatives who have Italy have .$89,000,000. In othr-r words, intelligence to succeed at anything. As the savings of the United States are the school grew a waitress class was or greater by $:!6S,000,000 than those organized, and one for dietetic cookery, Great Britain, France, Russia and which brought in a group of nurses Italy combined. The common people and these things will continue. Each are really the money power, as indi- [year there is a rigid examination, when cated by these totals in our country, questions are asked which few house and the flattering comparison with keepers could answer, and those who other nations gives some faint idea of the wealth of our nation. And it would be greater still if the practice of saving were more universal. A BIT OF DES MOINES HISTORY. The press dispatches announce that Dr. E. S. Aborn, formerly of Des Moines, dropped: dead in his offi co in San Francisco recently. His career in our state capital attracted- some atten tion early in the '70's, and although we are cautioned to "say nothing but good of the dead," the truthful chronicler of history can not always be thus re strained. He appeared in Des Moines from the east as a physician at the time above named and cut quite a figure by his grandiose style and bombastic man ner. He was fine looking and made a "swell' appearance on the street with a cane. Among his projects was that of building a grand hotel, one which would surpass all others in size and equipment. He filled the capitolian pa pers with "write ups" of his project. Now the capitollans themselves had great ambitions in that early day, but many of them became disgusted with the constant iteration of this scheme, that seemed to be largely on paper. It *4 .one of the wits to prepare and are worthy receive diplomas." The aim appears to be to remove from the housekeeper the title and ser vility of servant to place a premium on excellence to found schools where girls may learn how to perform the duties of a household, from cleaning a pan to cooking and serving the most difficult and delicate dish properly, thereby fitting them to earn a comfort able livelihood or to conduct a home of their own with intelligence. IOWA PRESS COMMENT. "A Davenport merchant is rejoicing in the fact that he took orders enough yesterday to run his establishment a whole month. He is looking for more help. This is by no means an excep tional case," says the Democrat. Quoting the statement of John Hay, secretary of state, that "there is no alli ance with England nor any power under heaven," the Oskaloosa Herald ob serves: "This flatly contradicts every democratic state platform and knocks the foundation from under what a few leaders must want to make an issue. It particularly hits Iowa and Ohio demo crats." 1 The Ottumwa' Courier thinks "There have been so many replies and counter replies In this Transvaal business that the public Is losing track of the same. The Boer war Is in danger of being classed with the kissing1 bug and other fakes of the season." The Iowa City Republican declares that "There are more than two million dollars in the banks of this city because taxes have been increased nearly 50 per cent in fifteen years. This year the tax levy has been increased over 6 mills in the city and about $3,600 in the entire county." In discussing the features of the trust conference the Fort Dodge Messenger reaches the conclusion that "The great corporations formed to promote trade can not be wiped out without disaster to all and they can not be regulated wisely in a partisan spirit. It is an eco nomic question that will need calmness and unprejdiced study to solve." The Keokuk Gate City observes that "Bryanism merely means that a work ingman shall be so envious of his em ployer that he shall throw his employer and himself out of a job." The Clinton Herald declares "The fact that the money in circulation in the United States has increased nearly $•150,000,000 since Mr. Bryan's nomina tion is likely to prove quite embarras sing to the democratic orators whose leaders are everywhere insisting upon making free silver the leading issue in the campaign of 1S99 and 1900." The Carroll Herald believes "The peo ple of Iowa are not ashamed of the fact that their governor was a prominent participant in the M. E. conference at Denison last week and was chosen a delegate to the general conference. For nearly a score of years Leslie M. Shaw has been an active worker in Methodist conferences." •W-l-I j. •I-M-H-I-K H-I TOPICS OF THE TIMES fci-H-M-M I H-1 l-l"l"M"! 1I|4 The shipments of iron from Ala bama and Tennessee for the past eight months show the most extraordinary demand ever known to southern pro duction. Perry Belmont, a prominent democrat of New York, now in Europe, cables his brother August denying the report that he had condemned McKinley's policy as to the Pliilipines and endorsed Bryan. In discussing the trust conference the Louisville Courier-Journal is of the opinion that "the trust evil can not be successfully combated without the as sent, and not only the assent, but the hearty co-operation of a majority of the people. But it is necessary to dis cover an efficient way to control trusts before submitting it to the people for, while quack remedies sometimes obtain much favor for brief periods, it is im possible to fool all the people all the time." Out of 2,lS6,SOOtOOO letters that passed through the British postoffice last year, there were as many as S.SOO.OOO which the officials managed not to deliver. In those opened at the dead letter office property of the value of $3,600,000 was found. The St. Paul Pioneer commenced its publication in 1849, and in the latter part of October, 1S99, the St. Paul Pio neer Press will fittingly commemorate the completion of fifty years of news paper existence by issuing a mammoth number, containing not less than fifty two pages, including a magnificent cover illustrated with four colors. The Pioneer Press is one of the best and most reliable of western newspapers. *. The fact that Brother Murphy finds a good field for temperance work in Des Moines is suggestive of the idea that they ought to straighten up there and set a good example for the state. England and the Boer republic are in just such a fighting altitude that a "Maine" explosion would precipitate a conflict. Let us hope there are no Spaniards in the ring. With a newspaper- as with an indi vidual it is often pleasant to know that we are missed. The Roland Record, in complaining about some irregularity of the mails which caused the T.-R. to fall to reach it, writes: "Send along the T.-R., as wc can not run a paper in lowu without the T.-R." "There is a possibility that President Diaz may visit Chicago, but no certain ty that he will," said Senator Juan Mo rada, of Monterey, in Washington the other day. "The president must ask permission of congress In order to leave the country, but if he asks leave it will only be a formality, for our congress will do whatever Gen. Diaz would like. His slightest wish is law in Mexico. 1 am glad to be able to say that Mexico was never in as prosperous a condition as it is at present. Nearly evtfry indus try is on a paying basis, and the Ameri can contingent in the cities and in the mines is making plenty of money. The fact that our silver dollar Is not at par with your American dollar is not so much a matter of regret, seeing that our dollar buys as much of home prod ucts as ever, and that by virtue of the discount on Mexican money the people have learned to manufacture for them selves articles that used to be entirely brought in from foreign countries." The demand for fractional coins is looked upon by the silver people as a victory for them. They are willing to catch at any straw. It Is the Missouri apple and- not the youngster that is troubled with worms. According to R. T. Wighell, a prominent Nodaway county fruit grower who lives near Arkoe, the northwest Missouri ap ple crop this year is poor. "The crop is small," he said, "and a very small per cent of it is good. I do not believe that one In fifty apples is sound. The ex treme wet weather of last spring made insects unusually numerous and they got into the blossoms, where the fruit grew over them, }hus embedding1 them In their hearta. The result 1# that there 1s much waste In .all of them, and that they will rot quickly.' do out into your orchard and pick up one apple after another, cutting them open as you do so, and you will And that there is hard ly one that hasn't a worm in it. The apples look as welt on the outside to the ordinary observer as usual, but the ex perienced grower finds little difficulty in picking out the bad and good ones." V-i A" Russian electrician, Paul Steins, has invented an electrical device for which he claims extraordinary things. He declares that by its aid the blind even those who were born blind—may be made to'see and that the deaf may be made to hear without difficulty. He is now In London for the purpose of bringing his Invention under the closer observation of scientists. It is said that ex-Senator Ingalls has lost money by every bank failure in Atchison, Kas. Still he did not join the calamltyites. The weather man says of the corn crop of Nebraska that It is now beyond all danger of frosts. This makes assur ance doubly sure. Once the corn crop of Nebraska has safely weathered the hot winds of July and the frosts of Sep tember there Is no room for doubt of an immense yield. Corn is king in Nebras ka and cattle on a thousand hills are enriching the producers. The Nevadla Representative states that its "present tally of the senatorial situation gives: Gear, sure 83, proba ble 9: Cummins, sure 53, probable 5 doubtful, 10 Gear in democratic coun ties, 9: Cummins in democratic coun ties, 10 sure democrats, 21. Stated dif ferently, the figures may be grouped thus: Gear sure, probable and doubt ful, 52 Cummins sure and probable, 58 democrats, probably 40." These figures are not definite enough to be assuring. No estimate can be of value unless fig ures are grouped with districts. Gen. R. A. Alger has been announced as one of those who will welcome the Kansas troops returning from Manila. This week's Issue of the New Sharon Star contains a card announcing the re tirement of H. J. Vail from the editor ship to assume the position of managing editor of the Ottumwa Daily Press. Mr. Vail has been identified with the Star for thirty-six years and has an excel lent standing In the editorial fraternity. Mr. R. A. Nicholson, the present pro prietor of the Star, will keep it up to the standard. COMMON SENSE ABOUT MONOPO LIES. fNew York Tribune.] Not only Mr. Bryan, but the great Chicago anti-trust conference, appears to have been handled without gloves by Mr. Bourke Cockran in his second speech, in reply to Mr. Bryan, Saturday afternoon. The day before he lacked the element of combat and did himself less than justice, though his speech contained much that might well be studied. But after Mr. Bryan had in dulged in an appeal of his usual order, Mr. Cockran began with a return to practical sense, which must have been shocking to the western orator and his friends. Only a few sentences need be repeated to show the scope and the sin gular incisiveness of this reply: "Now who Is hurt, and where? Where has this octopus got possession of somebody? On whom is it acting? Where is its lair? I am free to confess that when you call an aggregation of capital a combination, a hydra-headed monster, an octopus, It doesn't cast any light upon it that illumines my path way. I can understand how the use of tlu-se phrases can have some effect, as nothing frightens people so much as incomprehensible noises. "If you point out to me. as Mr. Bryan did this morning, the fact that we have not seen the evils of this monopoly yet, why, then I say you are simply creating a fanciful picture your excessive affec tion for your fellows has conjured up a grave evil that exists only in your own brain. Like Don Quixote of old, your are constituting yourself a knight errant of poliiticcal economy— not against the windmill, but c-nlisting the windmill on your side. Applause and laughter)." The pitiful lack of evidence that any body is being injured by the monsters of iniquity at which so much lurid rhetoric is levelled appears to the speaker the fatal weakness of the dem onstration. But he also puts home again the fact that, as labor represent atives had declared, wages are higher than they have ever been before, so that the country is doing wonderfully well in returns to workers. Then Mr. Cockran asks: "If you want competition, must not somebody succeed? Will you suppress the man because he excels another so far that he constitutes a monoply?.... Restricted competition always pro duces the domination of the baser, while free competition produces the domination of the best." It will be hard for any who discuss this subject intelligently to evade the force of this reasoning, that competi tion, if real and free and effective in producing the highest excellence, must tend to destroy competition. Its natural result Is "survival of the fittest." Just here the speaker had missed a point the day before in reference to the tariff. He had said: "Manifestly it is easier to make a combination between the producers in one country than in all countries, and to that extent the tariff favors trusts. There would sound sense in this statement if the number of "the producers'* were per petually the same. But if the tariff increases ten fold or one hundredfold the number of producers in this coun try, as in some cases it has done, then it is obviously foolish to reason that it makes combination between the pro ducers easier. On the contrary, by as suring new enterprises here against de structive foreign competition it builds up In every direction such home compe tition that a combination of "all the producers" of yesterday has to face new foes today, and fight for Its life to morrow. Mr. Cockran presumably held it not profitable to discuss the tariff question at length, but if he had looked the fact straight In the face, and real ized that the upbuilding and multipli cation of domestic competition is the one influence which would-be monopo lies find it harder to overcome than all others, he might have felt that the "trust" question could not be intelll gently considered if the tariff were ig nored. Mr. Cockran puts much stress on the advantage which combinations gain through favoring rates for transporta tion, but sadly err* in arguing that the business Is done for them "at a loss," and therefore In part at public expense. The secret of the whole matter Is that the transportation of small quantities, and especially of Irregular quantities, costs many times as much a ton a mile as the transportation of a great quan tity constantly and regularly. A con cern which can give a railway business enough to crowd one full train every day over the entire line of the road ought to get" lower rates, purely as a matter of business, than can be given to smaller and more Irregular traffic. All the laws that can be enacted will never wholly prevent railway compa nies from doing wholesale at lower rates than retail business, and regular at lower rateB than Irregular traffic, nor is there any morality or sense In laws which seek to deprive the roads of such intelligent use of their property. But these are trifles compared with the admirable and Instructive treat ment of the prevailing disposition to manufacture monopolies with the im agination, and then to take It for granted that they are doing great harm. In every such case It is the part of the upright and candid man to ask whether any monopoly of prices, of ma terials, or of production actually ex ists whether there is anything to pre vent fresh competitors entering the field, very often, as we see daily, with new Inventions and methods yet un tried. If there is a partial monopoly or control of markets it is Btiil not the right of anybody to declare, as Mr. Bryan does, that every such control must be harmful and ought to be as sailed, even if it is serving the public more cheaply than it has ever been served before. Where There Are No Taxes. Lond's island, on the coait of Maine, near historic Petnaqnid, in the Lincoln county town of Bristol, is one of the very few places on earth where there are no taxes. This island, otherwise known as Muscongus, was overlooked when Maine became state and was put into no town or county. The island was first settled by John Loud, a deserter from a British man-of-war, and his great-grandchildren are now prominent inhabitants. By vol untary contributions school is maintained, the parents paying $4 for each child. Tho school term averages eight months in each year, and there is an average at tendance of IS scholars. Catching bait for the fishermen of Boston, Gloucester and Portland is the most profitable busiucss of the people, but when buit is slack in rnnning they turn their attention to lobstering, mack erel fishing and catching porgies for the big oil and fertilizing factory opposite the island in Bristol.
