THE RICHMOND PAIXADIUM AND SUN-TELEGRAM, MONDAY NOVEMBER 27, 1011.
PAGE THREE. GUHS OF ORATORY WILL JJOOM FORTH Democrats and Insurgents to Take Up Great Trust Question. (By Roderick Clifford.) WA8HINTON, November 27. The guns of oratory In congress, from both Democratic and insurgent sources, are to be turned during the approaching session on the administering of trusts and great combinations by judicial construction. While Wall Street is now congratu lating itself upon the action of the cir cuit court which approved the plan of dissolution of the Tobacco Trust, var ious elements in Congress adready are unllmbering their batteries to be turn ed on the very policy which brought about their decision. There are mem bers of Congress, both in the Seaate and the House, who feel that the courts are gradually taking to them selves too much Jurisdiction in the in terpretation of the anti-trust laws, and that as a consequence the courts are becoming legislative as well as judi cial bodies. Muttering Are Heard. The first mutterings were heard in Congress when the Supreme Court read the words "reasonable" and "un reasonable" into the Sherman anti trust law through the decisions in the Btandard Oil and Tobacco trust cases. There is developing sentiment in the national legislative body for arnend mends to the Sherman law that will make its meaning understood beyond question, removing every loophole through which the courts can order a different construction. On the other hand, there is a certain school of statesmen who believe that the Sher man law must remain untouched and that amendments at this time will re vive the entire controversy that has reaged about the construction of the law for the past twenty years. Senator Bristow, the Kansas insur gent, is one member of the Senate who does not approve of the present policy of the Department of Justice as It relates to great industrial corpora tions and the trusts. He declares that the policy of the attorney-general in regulating these combines by judicial decrees is utterly indefensible and wrong. Senator Bristow pointed out that as a result of this policy, which is some thing new In the government's rela tion to big business concerns that are recognized as violators of the anti trust law are enabled by a change of form, to get in under the shelter of j the law in such manner as to make the I courts sponsers for them. Senator j Bristow does not believe that the ( American people will tolerate any . such policies. If the trusts are guilty ; of violations of the law, the Kansas senator and quite a number of other legislators believe they should be made to suffer the consequences an.l , should not be permitted to come into court and agree to a decree which merely changes the form of their ex istence, without punishing for past of fenses. What Bristow Thinks. While Senator Bristow is not ready at this time to make a definite an nouncement as to the legislation he : will propose for the regulation of ; great industrial concerns and big busi ness generally, he has no hesitation in : saying that the subject is one of grav est importance to the American peo ple and that the subject of trust regu lation is still one of the paramount Issues of the country. That legisla-. tlon of a carefully considered sort is still needed is the opinion of the sena-1 tor from the Insurgent state of Kan sas, and he believes that the coming session of Congress will see the trust question pushed into the foreground, along with a reduction of the tariff. I What Senator Bristow Bays is sig nificant of more that is to follow along this line during the approaching ses sion. When the progressive Republi cans held their recent conference in Chicago, the regulation of the trusts through the courts came in for con siderable attack. That the progres sives at both ends of the capltol will not hesitate this winter to score such means of regulation Is assured. They will be afforded a lever for doing so by the final ruling of the circuit court In the tobacco trust dissolution case, the Independents claiming that the dissolution plan does not measure up to the Sherman law and that In conse quence the courts have robbed that law of much of its efficiency. The Honey Back Cure for Rheumatism No wonder Leo H. Fihe is having uch a large sale on RHEUMA when It cures Rheumatism so quickly and ho guarantees it. It's simply wonderful how quickly It gets after any kind of Rheumatism and drives agony from the joints and muscles. A. A. Bellows, East Orwell, Ohio, writes: "I hare taken three bottles of RHEUMA and am cured of Rheuma tism. I want two bottles for my cous in. who Is very badly crippled with the disease." No remedy on earth can compare with this new discovery, RHEUMA. for It acts on blood, kidneys, liver and bowels all at once and makes you feel better In a day. A bottle of RHEUMA only costs SO cents at Leo H. Fihe's or by mail, charges prepaid, by Rheuma Co., Buf falo, N. Y. Indigestion vanishes and all stom ach distress disappears. Ask Leo H. Fihe for ENGLISH MARHUE, 25 cents. Mailed by Rheuma Co, Butfa-loH.T. In "Alma, Where Of 1 11 a v jS? ft j0 b w a ar -. m m VSs AT THE GENNETT TONIGHT. attorney general also is displeased with the reorganization proposed by the trust and made futile efforts to have it rejected by the circuit court which carried out the mandate of the supreme court. j Criticism as to what is being done with regard to the great industrial combinations of the country points in evitably to the consideration of fur ther plans by congress for the regu lation of the trusts. It will be strong ly urged by some of the progressives as well as the Democrats, that in making laws governing the control of industrial concerns, the legislative branch of the government should leave a3 little as possible to the adminis trative discretion of the courts, includ ing even the highest tribunal in the land which passes upon the constitu tionality of the laws rather than the wisdom and effect of the law. Difference of Opinion. It is probable that there will be the widest difference of opinion when it comes to the particular kind of changes that are to be made. There will be those who favor wiping the Sherman law from the statute books and enacting another anti-trust law In its place, as suggested recently by Representative Martin Littleton in his Bpeech at. the banquet of Pitts burg business men. There will be others who favor merely the strength ening of the present Sherman act and there will be still others who want that law unmolested and who will pro ceed on the theory that the best policy is to "let well enough alone." These conflicting views are bound to bring about exciting debates in the Senate and House, and developments of the past few days indicate that the trust question is going to share honors with the tariff question on the eve of the presldetnial campaign. In fact, it is reported that the adminis tration would like to make an issue of the trusts, rather than the tariff, and that the president and his cabinet will lay considerable stress upon what they consider a creditable perform ance in trust-busting. The progressives, however, will in sist that their trust-busting job could have been more complete had not the courts gone to such limits in the con struction of the anti-trust law. If the courts are to be allowed such discre tionary powers, the progressives will argue, it is best to make the law so plain that there can be but one con struction put upon the Intent of con gress, that being that the law must stand and must be enforced word for word and without any such qualifica tion as a reasonable or unreasonable restraint of trade. It is anticipated that there will be a dozen bills to amend the Sherman law proposed as soon as congress meets. Plenty of dressed turkeys, ducks, geese and chickens for Thanksgiving.

Such productions as "Alma, Where Do You Live?" which Is to be seen at the Gennett tonight bids fair to mark a new era In real musical comedy. "Alma" may be described as neither Do You Live?" MM 4T burlesque nor farce nor yet musical comedy, but a combination of all three of these, the effect apparently being to make the music subservient to the play; this being a direct contra diction of the usual form of procedure. "Alma," which in its original form was a French contribution by Paul Herve, with musical numbers by Jean Bri quet, received its first presentation in this country in the German, being pro duced at Adolf Phillip's Theater in Now York, where it had an extended run in the face of adverse criticism on account of its salaciousness, threats having been even heard that it was to be suppressed by the authorities. It was during this run that a perform ance was witnessed by Joseph M. Weber who saw great possibilities for it in English, and he immediately se cured the rights and had it American ized by George V. Hobart, who elimin ated all of the suggestiveness and yet performed his work so cleverly, that when it was presented at Weber's Theatre, it ran for an entire season to large and delighted audiences. Mr. Weber is now sending it on tour and it will, no doubt, prove to be one of the most enjoyable features of the present season. The scenes of the play are laid in Paris. ! "In Politics." One of the biggest hits of the sea son is Cal Stewart in his new play "In Politics." This offering is from the pen of a well known author who has provided Mr. Stewart with a piece i that is suitable for his capabilities as a funmaker. Something new and nov el is what the theatergoers want to see, and in "In Politics" there is noth ing to offend the most fastidious; a pure, simple story of country life, in teresting and constant. The sale of K seats will open at the Murray Theater box office Tuesday morning. A large attendance is expected at this per formance. At The Murray. "The best show of the season," was the popular verdict of the people as they wended their way out of the crowded Murray Theater this after- j noon, and the criticism was well mer ited, as it is without a doubt the very best all round bill that has been here for some time. The Four Grohvinis open the show with a novelty acrobatic and contor tion act that is great. These four peo ple, the man and the three girls, per form these feats, that to the unitiated seem almost beyond reason, with the utmost skill and ease. The Musical Rosar Family, a family composed of real musicians, put on a stunt that is most unique. Playing upon different musical instruments both popular and classical music, the act made an instantaneous hit. Barnes and Edwins, in their jolly frolic, "Side by Side by the Sea Side," were a riot. Their singing and danc ing is most excellent and the comedy put over by them is new and away Slop a Gold Almost Instantly The speed with which colds or la grippe are conquered by Pinex Cold Tab lets will surprise you.

Hercod of Lausanne in a spe cial contribution to the Alliance Tem perance Almnnnc points out that the absinth liquor, which is now prohib ited in three European countries Bel gium, Holland and Switzerland owes its peculiar noxiousness to the fact that it is prepared with several es sences, among them wormwood, which have marked toxic properties. Added to the action of the alcohol a strong absinth contains 65 per cent) these essences have a most deleterious ef fect on the organisms, especially on the nervous system. Even small doses provoke a great irritability, which may ensily lead heavy drinkers to crime. Epilepsy 1 more quickly , de veloped among absinth drinkers than among the drinkers of the commoner kinds of alcoholic liquors. Dundee Advertiser. A Quaint Inscription.

The criminal court of appeals which convened today for its November term Is expected to make some final dis- position of the case of "Kid" Kelley, which has bothered the Oklahoma au- thorities for several years. Kelley, a negro, was convicted of the murder of another negro near Tishomingo eight years ago and ever since he has been waiting to find out whether he should j be hanged by the United States of the ; State. His case was pending in the Indian Territory courts when Oklaho ma was admitted to Statehood. An ef- iort was maae to get tne case into tne United States circuit court of appeals, but that court refused to take jurisdtc tion. So did the criminal court of ap-; pea.s or umanoma. uecenuy me at- torney-general decided the State had no jurisdiction and the negro was re - leased from custody. But as the case is still on the criminal court docket it will be taken up and disposed of at the present term.

Every boy end girl down on the farm In times gone by need to roast eggs, pieces of meat and potatoes in embers in the old wood cook stove or In the big open fireplace. Barns were search ed for hens' nests, and the fine, fresh eggs were wrapped in heavy paper. The paper was dampened, and several thicknesses of It protected the eggs from scorching. You know, wet pa per in a ball is bard to burn. Well, the wrapped np eggs were put on the lire coals and partially covered by them. In from five to fifteen minutes the egg was roasting hot and ready to eat with salt, pepper and butter. A pin bole was made In the big end ot the egg so as to let the steam escape to keep it from bursting the shell and the meats from running out. If you have never us a small boy roasted such eggs you have missed one of child hood's greatest joys. New York Press. CAFE 12.
