The majority of the congressional com
mlttee on the wood pulp and newspaper
question have done Just what they were
expected to do and Jutt what tne trust
managers have been scheming to have
them do; they have reported In favor of
lining nothing. They do not mako this
recommendation out and out, for that
wouldn't do. they advise delaying until
afler the present session is over. They
merely report progress, to the effect that
no evidence of a combination has been
produced nnd that an Increase of price
Whoever has tried to buy paper knows
that there has developed just the situa
tion that a combination would develop
It Is notorious In the trade. All the Inci
dental corroborations are there In plain
sight. The price has been arbitrarily
shoved up. All hands have givrn It a
shove. Competition has disappeared. If
that Is not combination, what is It?
Through the efforts of Herman Rld-
der of the Stunts V.eltung of New York
nnd John Norrls of the New York Times
the committee was flooded with evidence,
nut this didn't convince the majority be
cause the manufacturers denied the fact
of a combination. It was plainly a nat
ural coincidence, Walt, is what the com
mitter' snv. hut sweat Is what the pub
lishers will do.
Those who have been active In the
movement for the relief of paper con
sumers say that, if they might tell the
Inside facts, they would make some
mighty Interesting reading. Hut presum
ably no such Imprudence will be indulged
In. It would not be popular with Con
gress. The trust people must be smiling
these days with the refusal tn do any
thing toward preserving the forests and
tlie consumers of nn article which would
not be harder to get If nil the manu
facturers were In close combination.
They save their fnees hy tclllne tho
country to wait, but meanwhile the pnp
cr hills keep coming In on the consumers.
Speaker Cannon Is understood to have
prevented any direct vote on this ipies

the special committee which was expect
ed to throw the thing over to the next

would not fall this time.

This bird, and not the catbird, Is the

he will become invisible and silent upon
the first attempt to approach him, re

The bitting bird steals nway and is ht
