From Sunday's Paper.
The success which has atteud
th d Ihe unceasing agitation of
the question of insurance by the
merchants and commercial or
ganizations of Meridian should
be an incentive for Columbus to
renew her efforts to have her in
BR ranee rates reduced. We pay
annually about forty thousand
dollars in the insurance pre
miums and our annual loss is
iiitinitesimally small. A few years
ago when the question f an ade
quate water system was being
discussed in Columbus, and
again when the matter of a paid
fire department was under con
sideration the strongest argu
ment advanced for both was the
reduction of insurance rates
promised. These improvements
trreatly reducing the tire risks in
the city have been installed at a
cost of many thousands of dol
lars but our rates are still high
all out of proportion to the risk
taken. This is a matter which
the Citizens' League should agi
tate. Ten or fifteen thousand
dollars saved to our people an
nually is an item worth striving
for.
Wall street is extremely angry
with the President for the activ
ity he displayed in bringing to a
halt the Northern Security deal.
The prospect of having the de
cision sustained by the Supreme
Court is extremely worrysome
to the money power for it means
an end of spoliation and robbery
under the name of consolidation
which the great manipulators
have long practiced. However,
the Supreme Court has not gone
on record and before accepting
as final this principle of law it
will be well to remember this
tribunal's record in the famous
income tax case.
The man who sold the Wood
men their little 4 axe" piu was
from Kansas, he netted over a
hundred thousand dollars on the
deal in 90 days aud now it turns
out that the pin is not an emblem
of the order and the fellow is an
impostor. Great is Kansas and
Barnum's estimate of the great
American people still holds good.
And now comes along a man
who proposes to use the limbs,
bolls and leaves of the cotton
plant in the manufacture of pa
per. As soon as the process is
developed it will be gobbled up
by the trust and we will be as
helpless as ever.
