Now that I think of it the Greek candy store has just imported a lot of fancy boxes for candy that have the true green of the Sod of Old Ireland, and their candy is so good that it would gladden the heart of St. Patrick himself. MERGER DECISION Brief Reference to Some of the Re strictions. In the December number of the Yale Law Journal Daniel II. Cham berlain, formerly Governor of South Carolina, maintained that the North ern Securities decision must be fa vorable to the government because of the opinions delivered by the Su preme court in the following three cases: U. S.- vg. Freight Association, IT. S. vs. Joint 'Traffic-: 'Association, and "Addystone Pipe and Steel Com pany vs. U. S. Notwithstanding those cases, however, the division of the bench was the close one of five to four, and there "was some" ' difference of opinion among the majority. More over, speculation as to the mature of the decision varied up to the time of its announcement, and the triumph of the government will arouse a lively and sensational interest in every part of the country. This interest is explained by the notoriety and the importance of the struggle which led to the decision and by the effect which will be antici pated from the decision itself. One is tempted to apply to the judgment of the court the words which Mr. Chamberlain applied to the decision of the court of appeals with which it harmonizes: "It will be a monument and beacon marking a great victory in the long and perilous struggle of justice and right against the domina tion of individual and corporate greed and of individual and corporate wealth." For it is in the. highest sense popular, and we should say that it must be determinative against cer tain kinds of monopoly were it not i for the lingering doubt that is due to the fearful and wonderful ingenuity of our captains of industry and Na poleons of finance. But in any event it must put that ingenuity to a severe test, for its definitions are of a very restrictive nature, as will be seen by :i brief reference to some of them. First Railroads are clearly in cluded within the prohibitions of the anti-trust law, and mergers such as this one are trusts within the mean ing of the act. Second The subterfuge in the plea that the owners of railroad stock had a risrht to sell to the trust, and that the trust had a right to buy is unavailing because the court sticks to the main point that the corporations existed to restrain commerce. Third The power of Congress to control interstate commerce 1 is com plete. . Fourth All contracts, whether they are reasonable or unreasonable, which are in restraint of trade are prohibited by the law. Fifth The fact that such a cor poration as the Northern Securities Company gets its charter from a state does not absolve it from obedience to federal law. Men who now attempt what Hill and Morgan attempted may be set down as conscious lawbreakers, what ever their methods. The decision de stroys the old sophistries at the very ler.st and puts a lasting stigma upon capitalistic anarchy. rial arid it erjso E1ITED' BY i' MIHS CHARLOTTE MY KICK Social SOCAL CALENDAR.

At a meeting of the Ladies' Aid society of the Second Presbyterian church, .held yesterday afternoon in the church parlors, it wras decided that the young men and young wo men of the church, assisted by the Teak sisters, should give an enter tainment in Pythian temple March 28.

Revington, 32 north fifteenth street, yesterday afternoon. The meetings of the "Circles," un like the general society, are, primar ily, social in nature. A collection is taken, however, and a little needle Avork is accomplished, though not enough to make the - meetings more than pleasant thimble parties. Yes terday, at the close of the afternoon,1 Mrs. Revington serA-ed light, refresh ments. : The meetings of each" circle will oc cur monthly.

Hiatt, 1116 north D street. A program of four papers, dealing with the "Conquest of California," "Poineer Spanish Families in California," "Ranch and Mission Days in Alta, California," and "Spanish Landmarks in Califor nia," was given by Mrs. W. S. Hiser, Mrs. F. M. Clarke, Miss Emily Win die, and Mrs. W. N. Trueblood. It was an exceptionally interesting pro gram, both because it was a subject about which a vast amount of inter esting material may be collected, and because the handling of the various phases was comprehensive, graceful and logical. The season of the Aftermath con tains another month of regular meet ings and an evening meeting, April 19, which will close the year. Next Tuesday afternoon Mrs. Frank Land, 314 north 'twelfth street, will be the club hostess. TEN JILLION Bond Issue Recommended for Insu lar Affairs in Philippines. Washington, March 16.

Man About Yesterday looked more like carna tion day than the day set apart for it by congress. It is rumored there is considerable gambling 'going on about the city. Men avIio can ill afford it are squandering their money. The United States Ilaiwester com pany is now located on south seventh street and are conducting business in the offices recently built for them. While the structure is ' not imposing in appearance, it is comfortable and ansAvers the purpose well. ' Wouldn't it be just too grand if our citizens on coming up town some morning would find the Main street bridge raised and liolland palace cars running under it ? It seems as if it will have to be done in some Provi dential Avay. A liA-ery barn Avouldn't be any more of a nuisance on north tenth than on south tenth or on Main. Now that spring is opening up, Avhy don't some of our monied men who have the interest of the city at heart build a number of houses that Avould rent at ten and eleven dollars. It A'ould be a gueat thing for Rich mond and a blessing to men of mod erate means. Who. will be the first to make the break? In .talking Avith. several persons from Franklin township all seem in faAor of giving the $12,000 subsidy to the C, G. & R. The building of this line into Bethel would be a big thing for that part of the county. Some day Richmond Avill be a toAvn of 50,000 inhabitants. That is Ave hope it Avill be. That number of peo ple make a splendid city, and, if we Avant a city of the size named, wTe must be up and a doing. Last night's meeting of the South Side Improve ment association has the right ring to it. PALACES STONED Because Houses Were Not Decorated. (By Associated Press.) Vienna, March id. The palaces of Emperor Francis Joseph and Arch Duchess Clotillie at Budapest were stoned by a mob and the Avindows AA-ere broken because their buildings Aere not decorated in honor of the revolution of 1S4S.
