Declaring the Sherman act "even as now inter preieu ineffective remedy in the Jufd complaint of the ocdimry man against monopolies" Judre Peter tirosscup c f the United States Circuit Court of Appeals, proposed In the coininericemeiit addrtsa before the Un ivcrsny or Iowa today a new method of dealing with Hints.

Judge (jfosscup's discussion of the remedy proposed by him was pre laceii tiy a review of the .Sherman act In which he said: "As Interpreted prior to May of this year the Sherman Anti-trust acf was helieved to be a weapon In the hands of the men who happened to const! lute (he administration at Washington. to destroy such specific monopolies and combinations ;,s t,P adininl: tratiui chose (o consider hurtful to competi tion in enterprise.

Reverting to his remedy the Judge continued : "Hut to which government, the na tional or the state, shall be given the power to apply the remedy? My ans wer Is, that, in the case of the big bo called trusts, such, for instance, aa the packers or the Standard oil Com pany, the bulk of whore raw materials Is drawn from states other than the company's domicile, or the bulk of whose finished product Is sold in "states other than the company's domicile, thereby bringing their business into interstate commerce, th principle I am urging should be applied by the na tional government, through such pro cesses as will make it practically com pelling that enterprir-ea of this kind organi.e as corporations under the United States laws. Proposal Very Simple "To that extent, at least, I am for the new nationalism Hy Hie hand of a single sovereignty, and that the su preme sovereignty, ran the principle. It seems to me, be effectively applied to the big so-called trusts. Hut this does not mean that the smaller manufac turing and trading corporations in any piven field of enterpri.se should be na tionally Incorporated. 'From there orlnes no monopoly And where, among there smaller concerns, combinations i.rlse in unreasonable restraint ot trade, the Sherman Act as now inter preted would probably be fuiffirlcnt. "The national bureau of corpora tions has alreidy access to information that will show what these preeentagea a re. "I am proposing nothing really com plex.

There have been frecpient alarms recently about the health of the pope, "The Prisoner of the Vatican," as he is sometimes call ed, has never been in health since the oiiciave chose him for this high of- lice. A man of simple tastes, accus tomed to freedom and to intercourse with his family, he has chafed under the restraints of the Vatican and often X presses a longing to see once more the city of Venice, where he lived hap- I ily for many years. Those who knew him well said that lie Would not Slir - vlve the confinement to the Vatican and Its beautiful garden many years. Already his successor is being dis cuased. The most available candidate Is thought to be Cardinal Rampolla, the papal secretary. In fact, it is said that he will almost certainly succeed to the papacy. The other candidates before the last conclave are now too old. Ram pedla might have been elected at that conclave if Austria had not vetoed the choice. Pius X. himself la rpiotcd as Intimating his belief that Rampolla should succeed him. The veto was abolished by Pius X., who forbade car dinals to receive even in the form of n simple desire a demand for their of fices In presenting a veto, and this under penalty of excommunication. Rampolla will have all the strength he had in the last conclave, and it Is thought that some who opposed him before now favor him. MUCH OPIUM DESTROYED.
