It has become a fact too glaring to . escape notice that from year to year the salaries of men in clerical positions in which integrity should be figured as an essential qualification, in one who , tills the Maine, have experienced a steady decline. Bookkeepers, cashiers, collectors and clerks of all kinds who have access to the cash drawer or valuables of their employers, and are confronted in the performance of theli duties by what might under certain conditions constitute "temptations," are getting at least a third leis:? pay than twenty years ago. The fact that the cost of living has Increased in less than half that time in like proportion, makes the situation extremely trying to those who depend for their substance on positions coming under the above quoted classification. In looking for the cause of this con dition and in the face of the fact thai the country as a nation is more pros perous than ever before, the allied interests of capital combined in trusts, looms up in the foreground. In con sidering trusts in this connection one usually figures on corporations which directly control the salaries of men in their immediate employ. But there lb another factor, partaking, albeit, of the nature of a trust, which is overlooked in thus disposing of the subject. By this 1 meant the ninety companies which execute bonds for salaried men at the instance of and under contract with their employers and stand ready to indemnify the latter in case an em ploye embezzles or steals, or through dishonesty of any tangible character, causes loss to the firm by which he is employed. Before the surety companies held sway there wau such a thing as a premium on honesty. An honest man, moreover, took a personal interest in his own Integrity. A concern that had open a position of trust,, selected the man who was to fill it for his reputa tion for integrity as well as for his business ability, and stood ready to pay him for such Integrity. Where a bond was required it was apt to be furnished by a friend by whom the man bonded felt a personal responsi bility to do the right thing. Under a bond furnished by a surety company there Is no such thing as personal re eponslbillty. The company hiring a man loses Interest in the question of his honor. Whether knave or saint it is all one to thf employing concern, as in a case of loss through underhanded dealing on the part of its servant, it can recover from the bond company. The servant, on the other hand, feels no personal obligation "to the bonding com pany. In many cases he has nothing but bitterness in his heart for the rich corporation that is paying him a star vatiyn wage for the best that he can do. find if he is tempted to steal there is nothing but the fear of the law that stands in his way. The baneful in fluence of this discount upon honor has made itself felt in the remunera tions of the vtist m my of men and women Holding positions which are made a matter of traffic between their employers and the suiety companies.

The La Fayette Courier has the fol lowing to say regarding the pernicious fee system as applied to the prose cuting attorneys' offices throughout In diana: "The agitation for a new Jaw gov erning the pay of prosecuting attor neys is already beginning. The prop osition to put those officers on a sal ary has been befoie the legislature many times, but was always defeated by a strong lobby against it. As Ion as the law is as it is now, the prosecu tor has great inducement to use the office as a bonanza, by bringing prose cutions simply for the fees that may be in them. The system is radically wrong. In every other office in -the state, with the exception of some minor township offices, the fee system has been abolished. The agitation cannot become too strong for its abolition in the firosecutor's office. As it is now. many prosecutors bring all sorts of prosecutions for the fees they may make out of. them. They have no re gard for the enforcement of the law. This dos not apply everywhere, but the truth of the matter is that the jd1r 11 m as It is now may be for the self-aggrandizement of the prosecutor, and that is not the intention of the legis lature. A fight should begin now on this subject and not rest until the prosecutor's office Is on a salary basis, the same as other county and judicial offices." Between Trains Mrs. C. was horrified to discover that her little seven-year-old daughter was rapidly acquiring the habit of al luding very freely to the devil and at last she told her determinedly that a repetition of the obnoxious word would bring her severe punishment. The child knew that her mother was in earnest, so she set a seal on her lips. At last she seemed to have for gotten, but one day Mrs. C, who had been too ill to go to church, asked if she could tell what the minister had preached about in his sermon. "Oh, yes'm." she answered; "he preached about our Lord going up into tlie xnountaln and being tempted by by the gentleman who keeps hell." She didn't Intend to run any risks of being punished. Lippincott's. Broad Hippie Correspondence. Danderine Smithers has got a city beau. He's the cutter in an overall factory in Indianapolis and gets big money. Some say $17 a week. Lycurgus Dollarhide discovered a dead dog in his cistern yesterday and was quite spell bound. It was prob ably thrown in the cistern by some law-defying person. Luclndy Goshwiller suffered much from cramp colic night before last. Doc Reed thinks it was caused by eating too much pigs feet and ice cream at the church social the other night. Wiley Featherstone of Clermont is neie visiting his Aunt Barbara Sr.if ;les. Aunt Barbary is quite rich and is a widow and we guess Wiley is figur ing on being mentioned in the old lady's will Sam Peasley has named one of his twins Teddy Roosevelt and has writ to the president notifying him of the fact. Sam evidently expects Teddy to give him an office. Sam is a little weak in his upper story. Old Bill Holllster's wife is quite feeble with galloping consumption, and he'h hired a hired girl to help him tend his stock and do the chores, which takes off much of the work done by the old lady. Bill is noted for his kind heartedness. Luke Slusher pulled a gun on Bill Gudgeon's egg-sucking dog last night and Bill's going to take the law on him for carrying concealed weapons. The dog is a cussed nuisance and has suck ed enough eggs around here to keep a family a year. Indianapolis Independ ent. IIOI IIKE COCKKAJV AXD SOCIALISM. Editor Lake County Times: I see you make room in your excel lent paper for the opinions of .all sorts and conditions of men, even the writ er. This is as it should be, and shows conclusively that The Lake County Times is not a one man or a one idea publication, but is broad and liberal in its policy and honestly consistent in its desire to give "a square deal" to all. You are inclined, it seems, to give us a chance to register our little personal grievances so long as we don't get of fensively personal in the registering. On last Monday evening you gave space to an outburst from Bourke Cockran the great Bourke, the mem ber of Congress from New York. Bourke's mad clear through; one can see that with half an eye. He feels all upset because a fellow named Hearst has practically stolen the Demo cratic nomination for governor of the great state of New York upset Bourke's time-honored and God-given prerogative and made a mess generally of matt rs political in the ranks of the great unwashed. And though Brer. Cockran trains in the other political camp, he is none the less shocked at Hearst's neive and assurance in adopt ing his methods. The only kick I have coming on Bourke's splenetic squeal is that he isn't at all honest about it. or why does he mix up the name of the man who has been so unfortunate as to in cur his ro.val congressional displeasure with the humble followers of Eugene V. Debs? Hearst has about as much in common with Socialism as Bourke has with honest politics or sane finance. The writer has no more admiration for the owner of those typographical nightmares and tawdry pictorial publi cations known as 'Hearst's papers," than has the ex -bowery congressman. I simply object to Mr. Cockran lam basting the Socialists over the pub lisher's shoulders and at the same time seeking to convey the impression that the two are in "cahoots." Socialists have no more love for Hearst than for Cockrane, and hardly as much respect. To prove my position in this direc tion let me quote from the recognized organ of the Socialist party a paper t ione tao i n CM F W Y CM F W YPM FWYPPP having a quarter of a million paid sub scribers and more than a million read ers: "Hearst himself is without foree or effect. His nature is wholly nugatory. He is a nondescript in appearance and a nonentity In character. Without in tellectuality or initatlve, but possessed of much inherited wealth, he is merely a successful broker of other men's bra ins. "This man Hearst Is a political liber tine who long has sought to flirt with Socialism. Through his brainy hired man. Arthur Brisbane, many have been the luring love notes he has indited to the indifferent object of his wiles. But both goo-goo eyes and billet doux have proved unavailing. Socialism is a dame that known full well what is the wage of political sinning, and cannot be led from the road of rectitude. "It is needless to say that Hearst will not receive the vote of any real So cialist. And it is to be hoped that he will not be favored with the ballot of any true sympathizer with the tenets of Socialism." I will, however, give the New York congressman credit for the first para graph of his article. The Socialist con tentions as there outlined is an exact and concise statement of the Socialist's real position and argument, and wheth er we like it or not, and whether Bourke Cockran and his followers agree with it er not, it comes pretty near be- ing a fair analysjs of present condi tions. That paragraph will bear re printing and re-reading, and is really the only portion of friend Cockran's outcry worthy that honor. Here It is. I Read it. Read it over again carefully it won't hurt you: The strongest appeal of the Socialist to public opinion is an assertion that unless the government assumes owner ship of the corporations the corpora tions will acquire ownership of the government. Both political parties, he charges, are controlled by corporate in terests so completely that while the leaders pose as opponents in politics they are in fact partners in business. And what appear to be their conflicts over matters of public interest are but devices by which they combine to de spoil the people for their private in terests. Hully gee! Bourke has certainly been studying Socialism to some pur pose. MARDEN. HIGII SCHOOL XOTES. Miss Elsa Mahsapohl, '06, visited school last Friday. Only five weeks until abstracts are due. Better get busy. Hollis Hunter has evidently decided to quit football. He got a haircut this morning. The Sophomores will give a party at Highlands next Friday night. This is a secret.

Oct 15. The stock market was a dull, sluggish affair today, with the tendency inclined to weakness. For a Monday morning it was the dullest we have had for months. Liquidation in Union Pacific was again in evidence. and the selling emanated from the i quarters that have been so enthusi jattically bullish of late. No doubt this I interest is making an effort to bring about a reaction to procure some more cheap stock. As a ten per cent, stock it looks exceedingly attractive to the Investment public. In the other standard rails, Reading and St. Paul, were the most active, but early trading Re&,&4&$ was weak, o- i HIE A the fluctuations did not exceed one and one-half point in either issue. In the lost a point from the opening; later it regained part of the loss. St. Paul closed a fraction lower than Saturday's final sale. In the industrial list Copper was the leader. For some unknown reason there seemed to be plenty of stock for sale, notwithstanding the excellent earnings and the possibilities of in creased dividends. The market closed steady, and on the whole slightly lower than Saturday. NEW YORK STOCK MARKET Description Atchison . . Atch. pfd.. Am Sugar , Am. Car... Amal. Con.. Am. Smel.. Am. I. Sees.

Early cables were quoted one quarter higher and reports from Argen tine were bullish on their growing crop, but these factors were lost sight of by the bear operators. Conditions in the northwest were favorable for the movement of the new crop. Sell ing from that quarter was on rather a liberal scale, mostly against cash pur chases. Sales to the seaboard were 22,000. The market closed weak with very little rallying power noticeable. CORN Dull and uninteresting, ab solutely devoid of feature. Fluctua tions only one-quarter of a cent for the most active future. Shorts were in cline to cover their contracts in corn and this gave the market a semblance of strength but beyond this fact, the trade was extremely narrow. The market closed steady to firm. OATS The tone in this cereal has ben weak all day although the selling pressure was not on a large scale. Com mission houses were the best sellers, the buying was by one of the larger elevator concerns who have been prom inent on the bull side of the market for the past month. Cash situation un changed from Saturday. The market closed steady. HEARD OX THE BOURSE. New York. Oct. 15. The present sit uation in Copper is unparalleled, the producers having sold ahead not only for the remainder of this year but also far into next year so that at present there is comparatively little copper left available for delivery during the next four months. The cause for this posi tion is simplo. A great consumptive demand and a comparatively small in increase in production, conditions to which we called attention many months ago. The forcing upward of the price has been due to the eagerness -of con sumers to cover the requirements, an eagerness which continues unabated. Baltimore & Ohio is one of the stable 6 per cent stocks that is making a good deal of money and will sell high er; its makes a great deal more money than Louisville and Nashville and will surely go on a 7 per cent dividend basis even if Mr. Cassatt wants to wait un til next year. The stockholders have been very patient, but the immense earnings will now bear some fruit in increased dividends. Copper people have a meeting this week to act on dividend and trade con ditions bear out increase in dividend. They are more favorable than H. IL Rogers ever dreamed of in his most sanguine moments. They have been keeping the stock down since the ad vance in Anaconda to accumulate more stock before boosting it on the divi dend announcement. Frick is still buying Southern Pacific en every recession and St. Paul is best bought of all. Harrlman cannot get enough of it for his use and has to go into the open market for it. Steel is being bought by Hill and Morgan from 49 down; the preferred is the cheapest. Profit taking and the Herald's sup posed interview with President Roose velt in which he stated that he was afraid Hearst wculd be elected and the fact that the Republican party is short of money, put the stock market down. It is reported that Kuhn. Loeb & Co. crowd have been selling I'nion Pacific above 190 to keep the market in shape so as not to let it run away. They are buyers of the stock from 188 so the market will not be demoralized; it is expected that they will milk the mar ket on this stock until after the elec tion and use politics to put- it up or down within five or six point range. No doubt if Hearst is elected it will be by a very close vote, and the supposi tion is that crops will still be planted and reaped, the railroads will continue to run and collect money for their ser vices. One big broker says there will be no more important bull manipula tion until after the election although he is a big bull on all stocks. HAMMOND MARKETS.
