while tlie South Hero team, with two ex
ceptions, were 20 oars old and over.

(From the Now Votk Times.)
Henry It. Rogers and the concerns of
which he was a part, anil a cry great
part, have been continuously under leg
islation and Judicial Investigation for nl
Piost 10 years, and It cannot bo said
that In any particular case the law eor
cot the better of hlni. In the broad ic
sult, however, tho law linn got tho bel
li:' of him, of his corporation, ami of his
kind, for It must be tho general convic
tion now that the astonishing inieer of
Mr. Rogers can never ho repeated In
this countiy. Mr. Rogers was ono of
that class of whom we see so many ex
amples who, witli opportunities and with
the ability to, make u great fortune,
made that fortune collossal hy not giv
ing the other fellow a fair chance, by
rtrangling competition, by creating and
ti'.loylng the conditions of monopoly.

The story of those devices and ngrec

try great Industries have possessed them

I .ed them to the end that a field by
natural free to all should become the
field of one, would have ns Its chief
set.rcrs the chronicles of the Sta'idard
f'll company. Jretly certainly v.u have
put a slop to Hint. Men with the genius
t.T business that Mr. Rogers posse.-srd
and with the opportunities Incident tn
tlie development of our resources will
cone to the fore, will fill the public eye
with their exploits, will make great foi
tuncs, as great perhaps as his best, hut
not his way, not by his method. Men
h. 'ive not been altogether regenerated:
there Is more yet to be done for their
mm nls ami their souls, ltnt they have
bven chastened ami corrected and means

change Is noted among manufacturing
Industries. Cneven nnd spotted condi

operated to full capacity while In other
lines no material advancement is noted.
Concensus of opinion prealls that with
warmer weather trade will increase, as
it has heen noticed In the few warm
days tills spring there has been a liberal
tradn In all lines of seasonable goods.
Stocks are in good shape and with labor
