ABERDEEN HERALD
VOL. XXI
ENFORCE ELKINS ACT
ATTORNEY GENERAL MOODY KILL
ACT VIGOROUSLY.
Instructs all United States Attorneys
to Investigate and Prosecute lin
der the Criminal Clause. I lie
Cracker on President Roosevelt's
Whip.
Attorney General Moody has is
sued to all United States district
attorneys a letter of instruction in
which he calls upon them to en-
force the anti-rebate law known us
the Elkins act. The attorney gen
eral calls attention to the fact that
the Elkins act provides punishment
by fine and also provides for the
prohibition of rebates through the
injunction process. The attorn' y
general calls upon the district at
torneys to diligently investigate,
and in every case in which sufficient
evidence may be secured, to submit
that evidence to the grand jury with
a view of securing an indictment.
He says that it is desirable that
indictments be returned both
against the shipper and tho carrier.
Pointing out that under the Ell;ins
law jthe only penalty is a fine, the
attorney general says that in all
cases where the evidence would
warrant it an indictment for con
spiracy to commit an offense
against the United States based up
on section 5440 of the revised stat
utes should be obtained. Ho cites
a decision of the supreme court in
which it was held that a conspir
acy to commit a crime itself ]
ishable by fine is punishable by
prisonment, and he says that,
the event of a conviction upon
charge of conspiracy, the dlstri
attorney should present to the co
the desirability of Inflicting the pen
alty of imprisonment "to tho end
that these unlawful practices which
have -ecelved almost universal con
demnation may be discouraged and
prevented as far as existing laws
will accomplish that result."
That is the plainest kind of talk
and just at this time it will be en
tirely agreeable to the American
people. Walter Wellman, Washing
ton correspondent for the Chicago
Record Ijlerald, says that this is
"the cracker on the whip which the
president Is wielding over the rail
roads," and that officials who may
be caught in the net now thrown
out are to be prosecuted not under
the Elkins law which provides for
line only, hut for conspiracy with
terms of imprisonment staring them
In the face If they are convicted.
It is to bo hoped that President
Roosevelt will act on such lines as
these, not merely for the purpose of
winning his point with respect to a
particular piece of legislation, but
in the effort to require influential
men to give some consideration to
public interests. Mr. Roosevelt
will find that he will not make ma
terial progress in any serious cam
paign against the special interests
by feather duster blows. Although
it may seem that the representatives
of special interests are powerful,
they can not long withstand a de
termined campaign waged by a
faithful public official who is back
ed by public sentiment. To a feath
er duster blow these representatives
■of special interests retort very
smartly and they display a thorough
contempt for law and authority.
But they were crushed in Jackson's
time, and they will be crushed in
Roosevelt's time if the patriotic
and determined methods employed
by Jackson are brought into use.
The president and his attorney
general deserve commendation for
the order referred to. It is to be
they will adhere to this pol
icy all along the line. These rich
and influential law breakers deserve
no more consideration at the hands
of the authorities than the cheapest
of criminals. Move against them
at every point, Mr. President. The
people are with you. Treat them
as they deserve to be treated —Just
as the commonest criminal Is treat
ed. And in waging your campaign
against these law-defying men re
member that
"Tender handed stroke a nettlo
And it stlngg for your pains;
Grasp it like a man or mettle
And It soft as silk remains."
SOT ON HONESTY
ESSAY PRINTED IN THE NEW YORK
WORLD IN 1899.
The New York Senator Shows That
Honesty is Easier to Write About
Than Practice. All Those Involv
ed in Present Scandals Were
Shouting Honesty in 1596.
The New York World recalls the fact
that in its issue of December 31, 1899, it
printed from the pen of Senator Chaun
ci'V M. I>epew, the following very inter
usting essay on "Honesty
" Honesty is too much talked about, as
if it were scarce in these days. The
business principles of today are better,
purer and more universally honest than
11 ley were in tlie days of my boyhood.
"I have seen many men become
wealthy through dishonest methods, and
my experience with them has taught me
this: That most men who gain wealth
dishonestly, if they live long enough, get
poor ag.iin. It is almost an invariable
rue; and it is reasonable enough, if you
► top to figure it out, for it comes abut
in this way : A man employs dishonest
met hods and yet he becomes very
wealthy. All his creditors know that
l»is career is just a little hit study as re
gards business methods, but he sails
serenely along until a crucical moment
arrives—a moment such as we had last
week—when ready money, 'cash at any
price,' was the cry of the maddened
brokers.
"Then he finds his Waterloo. The
credit which he might have obtained,
the confidence of reliable, reputable firms
which lie might have commanded, are
11 forthcoming.
I lie main temp'ation with which the
aiy business man of today is beset
temptation to misrepresent his
•i ii. l or business prospects, and thus
• aafer credit But don't do it;
il us not pay. The old, old adage,
: . <esty is the best policy,' is the safest
i, ;to for every business man to follow.
And I know what I am talking about,
too.
'"Be good and you'll be happy, but
you won't have a good time,' may sound
ver- well and elicit rounds of applause,
but it is a fallacy through and through.
It is easier, much easier, for an honest
m in to become wealthy than for his dis
honest brother, who may seem to pros
per tor a time; but. mark my words, his
is only a temporary success."
The World intimates that in the light
of recent disclosures, comment upon this
essay is at this time unnecessary. That
is all very true, and Senator Depew's
poor old heart must sutler many an ache
when he reads his interesting an 1 in
structive essay of 18!t9.
But this is not the only interesting
declamation on "honesty" that is to he
I..und in old-time newspaper files and
written hv men who, at the moment
poking as the special champion of "hon
c ty"and the particular "defenders of
national honor," have recently been ex
posed as men who preached but did not
practice.
The tiles of the New York World say,
for the year 1896, will show that every
United States senator and representative
indicted for malfeasance in office, every
insurance magnate exposed as an em
bezzler of his policyholders' money,
every national banker detected in the
act of stealing the deposits entrusted to
him, every federal official whipped from
the service in disgrace, every "frenzied
financier," shown before New York's in
surance committee to be a perjurer—
posed during the pre-idential campaign
oi 181)0 as one divinely ordained to de
fend the "national honor" and as one
whose mora) convictions were shocked
because the democratic party in that
year charged to be true the very facts
which are now being revealed to the
public gaze.

ABERDEEN, WASHINGTON, MONDAY, JANUARY 1. 1906.
A POWERFUL LOBBY
AT WORK AT THE NATIONAL CAP
ITAL THIS WINTER.
Laboring to Thwart the President's
Plans for Railway Regulation. To
Obstruct the Construction of the
Panama Canal, and the Admission
of New States.
This winter, the focus of American
activity atul attention in public sffairs
will be at Washington. At a moment
when reform movements in the states
and large cities were never more success
ful, it happens that the situation at
Wafchington has seldom been more seri
ous. It tnay be said with some caution,
hut with probable truth, that at no time
for twenty years past have lobby inter
ests been so powerful and at the same
•ime so insidious at Washington as in
the prrsent legislative season. The great
corporations propoee to thwart the I'resi*
dent's plans for the more effective regu
lation of railways. For various reasons,
they propose to obstruct the govern
ment's policy in the matter of the Pana
ma Canal. They are bent upon prevent
ing the passage of the Statehood bill
that would unite New Mexico and Ari
zona and admit them as a single com*
monwealth. It is well for the people of
the country to know that such influences
aie at work, and to do all they can to see
that their own representatives are not
captured by the lobbyists. The situa
tion is an unusual one in many resects,
and a very difficult one to deal with.
Tliiib President Roosevelt recommends
the immediate admission of Oklahoma
and Indian Territory ax one state, and of
Arizona and New .Mexico as another.
This question hag been tally and thor
oughly considered from every standpoint
of statesmanship and public policy, and
the President's recommendation ought to
be adopted. The oppositim comes from
great corporations, principally mining
companies in Arizona, supported by rail
road corporations. These Arizona min
ing companies own property worth hun
ereds of millions of dollars upon which
they pay practically no taxes at all.
They seem to be able to control Arizona
for their cwn ends. But if Arizona were
united with New Mexico they would be
in danger of losint; control, and might be
subjected to something like reasonable
taxation. They can array immense in
fluences in round,, bout and unsuspected
ways, and they can afford to spend a
fabulous sum of monev to defeat the
pending Statehood bill. It is to be feared
there lmve been attempts to influence
members of congress in this Arizona
situaion by the gift of mining stocks
and like improper methods. If the joint
Statehood bill is defeated now, the lob
byists will go on with their work, hoping
to seize a favorable moment in the future
for admitting Arizona and New Mexico
as two states. The safer and better way
is to close the business now by passing
the joint Statehood bill.—From "The
Progress of the World," in the American
Monthly Review of Reviews for January.

Editor Dean Sells Washingtonian to
O. ft. Moore, Pounder of Paper.
Last week J. D. Dean sold the Ho
quiam Washingtonian, of which he had
been editor and proprietor for the past
eleven yea»s, to O. M. Moore, of Seattle,
and proprietor of the White River Jour

included the White River Journal and a
residence in Seattle, to which city Mr.
Dean lias removed his family.
Mr. Dean leaves Grays Harbor after
having lived seventeen years in Hoquiam
with the kindest wishes of a host of
friends. While this psper did not at all
times agree witli the Washingtonian,
it has always had respect for its editor,
and now wishes him all kinds of success
in his new field.
O. M. Moore, who assumed charge
of that paper this morning is no stranger
to (irays Harbor, having founded the
Weekly Washingtonian in 1889. and sold
it to Mr. Dean in 1894. Although resid
ing in Seattle f.»r the p-ist eleven years,
Mr. Moore has always kept in touch with
Grays Harber, in the full knowledge
that its proper development was only a
question of time. Mr. Moore is a well
equipped newspaper man, and with the
knowledge of this region gained during
his former resilience here, is in position
to accomplish much good for Hoqtiiam
and the Grays Harbor country. The
Hkbalu wishes him unmeasurei success.
Dangers of a Child and How to Avoid
Them.
More fatalities have their origin in or
result from a cold than from any other
caube. Ihis fact alone should make peo

treated in the beginning. For many
yeßrs Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has
been recognised as the most prompt and
effectual medicine in u-e for this disease.

cough, relieves the Inngs, opens the se
cretions and aids nature in restoring the
