Ithe traditions of our free American
republics to find language properly to
characterize this radical Intrusion. It
Is an assault on the citadel of law and
order. It Is an attempt to destroy the
independence of the Judiciary, without
which true liberty the liberty which
I Is regulated by law, enforced with rea
(son and deliberation, cannot exist, and
to substantiate the opinion and the
.passions of the mob. It draga down
the Goddess and sets the hydraheaded
Demos on the throne of justice, and
enables the Ignorant suffragan to os
tracise a Judicial Astrldew, because
She is tired of hearing his judgments
i called Just. It Is more than probable
jthat this proposed legislation is one
tof the symptoms of the political, bo
'cial and economic unrest that pervades
Ithe whole nation. The burring ueqs
'tion that now agitates the rafnd of the
i American people is how to control the
) corporations; how to break up those
i great aggregations which seem to be
(almost as powerful as the government
tatself, and how to prevent their forma
ftion in the future.
. Both Seek These Ends,
i These ends are sought both by radi
jcals and conservatives. The radicals
'of course propose to destroy things
i generally, regardless of consequences.
The conservatives read the signs of
: the times, realize the danger of the
growing excitement among the mass
es of the people, and are seeking an
exit from the situation that will con
serve political liberty and industrial
The stock corporation is now an ab
iaolutely essential piece of machinery

affairs of modern times would not have

would not have been accomplished.
In spite of all the enormous corpo
rate development that has taken place
in this country and in England in the
last half century, and in spite of the
reckless throwing down by the states
of this Union of all the barriers an
ciently maintained against. the indis
criminate organization of business cor
porations there has always been among
the masses of the people a strong bias
against corporations, manifentlng it
self in the verdicts of juries, and some
times In the opinion of the courts. This
bias has now passed over '-to politics,
and the favorite ground c attack by
the demagogue cn anybody is public

corporate Interest, or that he is a cor
The people themselves are respon
sible for the conditions of which they
now complain; if there are Franken

the land, spreading terror and threat

elves have created them by their

Greed for Revenue.
During the last ten years there
seems to have been a competition be
tween the states as to which of them
would be able to invent and adopt the
most unrestricted corporation laws.
The spur to this competition has been
a greed for Vevenue, and the encour
agement lay in the success of the
state of New JerBey, which was the
pioneer in this legislation. Out of her
bosom have come the great trusts, the
holding companies and the gigantio
monopolies, all with their water-log
ged capital stocks. But there are now
f eight other states prepared to com-
pete with her in the launching of simi
lar piratical craft upon the sea of com1
' Whether these enormous corpora-
tions are formed by original incorpora
' tlon, or by consolidations or merger,
! or by the holding of the capital stocks
of other corporations, the economic
, result is the same. Each of these
! forms spells practical monopoly. The
result reached rather than the method
of reaching the result is what concerns
'the public, and no amount of technl-
cal reasoning will convince the peo-
ypl that a monopoly produced by one
i of these methods is any different from
a monopoly produced by any other of
Uhem. Hence all these large corpora
jtlona are popularly regarded as public
enemies, and there Is a general be
Harry Kemp, the young poet, whom
Upton Sinclair, the famous author and
social colonizer, names in his suit for
divorce which he says he is soon to
institute against his wife. Mr. Sin
clair objected to the attention the
young poet paid to Mrs. Sinclair while
he was on a visit to the author's sum
mer home at Arden, Delaware. Ac
cording to Mr. Sinclair, his wife then
went to New York to go on the "stage
p.nd be independent" and Kemp soon
followed, also with a stage career in
view. In a statement which he gave
out in New York, Mr. Sinclair de
clares that he has received a letter
from his wife which so clearly indi
cates her affection for the young po
et that he has nd hope for a reconcil
iation and further says that he be
lieves it contains sufficient grounds
for a divorce under the laws of New
lief that if the republic does not slay
them, they will slay the republic.
Suggests a Remedy.
The economic advantages, if any,
that flow from these vast aggregations
of capital, are drowned in the firm
belief that they exercise too much po
litical power, that they exercise such
power selfishly and unscrupulously,
that they bar the door to private enter
prises, blight local industries, cramp
the industrial freedom of individuals,
destroy equality of opportunity and
extinguish all hope and hence all am
bition for industrial independence and
Is there a remedy for all these
evils? Manifestly, there is, and it lies
in the source from which the evils
have Bprung, that is, in modifying the
corporation laws of the various states.
Concerted action among the states will
end all, the trouble. If every state in
the Union will purge its corporation
laws of all objectionable features, then
the breeding places of industrial monr
stroslties are destroyed. If every
state under whose laws these mon
trositics have been brought into being
will exercise its reserved power over
corporations and compel them either to
conform to the new regime or to dis
solve and liquidate, then the existing
crop will be destroyed without hope of
OVER mil DEED
Plight of Charles Price in
Eaton Jail, Pitiful Vic
tim Buried Today.
EATON, O., Aug. 29. A retrospec
tion of events leading up to the mo
ment he committed a crime that has
branded him a murderer has brought
Charles Price into a full realization of
the seriousness of the charge with
which he is now confronted. He has
weakened and his plight is truly piti
ful. Confined within the dismal walls
of the county jail the seemingly long
hours to him are spent in a continu
ous worry and repentance. He has ad
mitted to Sheriff William S. Boner his
repentance. He directly attributes his
crime to drink.
Price was taken from the jail Mon
day morning and arraigned before Po
lice Magistrate Joseph A. Kennel, who
designated Wednesday as the day up
on which he would be given a prelimi
nary hearing on the charge of murder
in the first degree. He was remand
ed to the county Jail. It is probable,
however, that he will waive the right
for an examination and plead not guil
ty, and go to jail to await the action
of the grand jury, summoned to report
Monday, September 11. ,
. Funeral of Avery.
The body of Frank Avery, killed by
a blow from an ax handle wielded by
Price in a fit of drunken frenzy, was
taken from the home of Al. H. Boom
ershine Monday and taken to his home
in the Mutton ville neighborhood, where
funeral services were held Tuesday af
ternoon, conducted by the Rev. Clarke
Li. Gowdy, pastor of the Camden
Methodist church. His body was in
terred in Fairmount cemetery at Cam
den. The services were attended ' by
hundreds of Avery's friends and many
relatives, whose presence was prompt
ed by a desire to pay a last sad tri
bute and not for the sake of curiosity.
He was universally liked and his death
is mourned more than any occurring in
the Muttonville neighborhood in re
Upon order of the court Sheriff Wil
liam S. Boner went to Avery's home
Monday and made an examination for
valuables and to take charge of his
chattels. A search through the house
brought to light an insurance policy
Avery had carried on . his life. The
policy was in the amount of $200, but
had become invalidated by reason of
non-payment of the premium. The
only money found was taken from the
clothing ATery wore, aad totaled $53.-
01- ' ; V .
The predicament into which Price
has lodged himself has caused almost
unbearable anguish on the part of his
young wife and mother, both of whom
are grief -striken. Neither have visit
ed him since his arrest. His wife is
at the home of her mother, Mrs. Alice
Harshman, East Spring street, while
his mother has remained at the coun
try home of her mother, Mrs. Elizabeth
Price, 9 miles north of Eaton on the
Price is the possessor of many
friends, and the outcome of the case
against him is watched with consider
able anxiety. His neighbors were
shocked to hear of the crime, as
Charles has always been an energetic
and thrifty farmer, and not at all giv
en to quarrelsome traits.
Coroner James L. Quinn held an ex
amination Monday afternoon at the
city hall and questioned a number of
witnesses and several who in a di
rect way knew something of the af
fair. His finding has not yet been
filed, but it will probably hold that
Avery came to his death by a blow in
flicted by an ax handle in Price's
hands. It is thought the coroner's ver
dict, whatever it may be, will have a
considerable bearing in the decision of
the case in the courts.
But Coroner Finds that Fred
Planned His Death.
Blackmailer Wants $10,000
Promised a Bomb.
(National News Association)
LOS ANGELES. Cal., Aug. 29. On
the eve of the trial of John J. and
James McNamara, who are charged
with blowing up the Los Angeles
Times building, Col. Harrison Grey
Otis, owner of the newspaper, has re
ceived threats of another bomb.
According to the publisher an uni
dentified person telephoned that un
less he left $10,000 at an appointed
place he either would be shot or his
home destroyed by dynamite. The po
lice placed a guard about the house.
Brides Who Perch In Trees.
Among the Lolos of western China it
Is customary for the bride on the wed
ding morning to perch herself on the
highest branch of a large tree while
the elder female members of her fam
ily cluster on the lower limbs armed
with sticks. When all are duly statiou
ed the bridegroom clambers up the
tree, assailed on all sides by blows,
pushes and pinches from the dowagers,
and it is not until he has broken
through their fence and captured the
bride that he is allowed to carry her
Relatives of the late Frederick Hase
meier disagree with Coroner R. J.
Pierce that the decedent committed
suicide by drowning in Glen Miller
lake early last Thursday morning, but
are inclined to the belief that his
death was entirely accidental and that
he would have been revived had his
body been removed from the water as
soon as it was discovered. Coroner
Pierce filed his report with county
clerk, George Matthews Tuesday and
in it declares that death was due to
deliberate and willful suicide.
Viewing all the circumstances in the
case the relatives affirm their opinion
that he went to the edge of the lake to
wash his hands and being in poor
health, became dizzy and fell in. As
he was revived by the cold water, he
floundered around and his fee be
came imbedded in the mud which held
him fast until he could fight no long
er to free himself, and also they con
tended the mud held him in the up
right' and partly submerged position
in which he was found by W. E. Ross,
the eight-year-old son of Dr. Paul
Went to Park Daily.
The relatives say -that Mr. Hase
meier was accustomed to go to the
Glen very early almost every morning.
His visits there were nothing unusual.
They believe that had he deliberately
planned to commit suicide he would
have addressed a note to someone,
but nothing of such a character has
since been found. On the morning
of his death, it had been raining and
they believe that he had taken off his
coat and folded it on the bank waere
it was found and went to the edge of
the lake to wash his hands and that In
stooping over he became dizzy.
It has not been announced whether
there will be an attempt to have the
verdict set aside, and the case reopen
ed. Relatives allege that If the body
had been removed by the fishermen
as soon as their attention, was called
to its discovery, and attempts at re
suscitation made, these would have
been successful. Relatives hold Hase
meier was not dead but merely uncon
scious when first discovered and that
he drowned in the interim between
the time of discovery and the time
the coroner reached the lake.
In reference to the finding of his hat
and coat, both dry, and laying on the
bank, the coroner says: "The hat and
coat were found on the lake bank as
if taken off deliberately and purpose
ly before said Hasemeier deliberately
and willfully entered the water for the
purpose of taking his own life."
George T. Brady, a railroader, living
at 2021 North C street, who was fish
ing at the south end of the lake said
he had been at the lake a half to three
quarters of an hour before his atten
tion was called to the finding of the'
body. He said he had neither seen
Hasemeier nor heard anything to draw
his attention to the northern part of
the pond. The coroner declares also
there was nothing to indicate death,
had been due to violence.

at Colbert, fifteen miles from here.

Hamilton, was reported early today to

CHILDREN'S ILLS IM SULIHER
The hardest period of a child's life is during the heated term. It is then that
the little men and women become so subject to stomach and bowel troubles.
With one it manifests itself in the form of obstinate constipation, with another

pp cai nufri lie as dangerous as the other. Constipation makes
CWBIIB de'dciVi the Cn'' 'ose aPPet'te and sleep, makes it
SYRUP PEPSIN languid and sickly-looking. Diarrhea weakens
it and destroys appetite and energy. Piles, pimples, eruptions, itch, worms, etc.,
follow in the train until many a mother feels that her child is indeed very ill.
But these are all troubles that can be easily cured. The child needs a few doses
of a remedy like Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, the grand laxative and tonic.
Parents can make no possible mistake by giving it Syrup Pepsin, as the chances
are always in favor of the child needing a laxative. It is sold in two sizes, 50
cents and $1.00, and any druggist can supply you. It cannot be mentioned too
strongly that parents should look closely after the welfare of the children during
the hot months. If you would like to try it before buying send your address for
