Can the Trusts be Controlled.
No question has pressed so rapidly
to the front as the problem of trusts,
as the huge combinations of immense
capital are commonly called. Their
rapid increase and unmeasured pow
er such as to arrest public attention
and call for serious consideration in
the minds of every good citizen.
When it is known that more of these
combinations have been effected dtr
ing the past two years than in all past
history, and that they include anthra
cite coal, bagging, brass goods, cop
per, coffee. glass. iron. steel, glucose,
kerosine, whisky, powder and ammu
nition, staves, starch, sugar, snuff,
tobac-o, tinware, tinplate, white lead,
and woodenware, the pre-ent fear
that these trusts are a mena:c to
society and the perpetuity of a re
publican form of government, is
founded upon .something more than
The power of a trust to tax the
people by charging unresonable prices
is a feature of the trust question that
has received but little attention tho'
it constitutes the real danger in the
consolidation of our manufacturing
in:lustries. It is this .power .to tax
the people for the benefit of the trust
which constitutes a'inena,.e to s:oiety.
The recent efforts of the States to
control the trusts have only suereed
el iu demonstrating that the States
are powerless to cope with the ques
tion. Texas may prohibit a New
York corporation from doing business
within the State of Texas, but is
powerless to prevent a citizen of 'c-i
as from gi.in to New York to ib: :.!l
he wants of the prolucts of the trist
for distribution in Texas; no: can the
State prevent the trusts from sen ling
traveling salesmen through its terri
tory tosell their products udder the

federal constitution, nor can any;

from collecting for goods sold, be

The Sherman anti-trust law, has
been decided by the United States
Supreme Court in the famous sugar
trust case, as powerless to regulate
manufacturing industries; that power
having reserved to the States. So it
is that until an amendment to the
Federal constitution is secured, the
trusts are safely shielded by that in
Congress however has already the
p-wer thra' an in lir.-t channel, to
bring the.trusts to law. While it has
no express- jurisdiction to regulate
corporations it has unlimited power;
to tax their earnings, their securities
issued and their dividends. Such a'
law, collecting a probitive tax on
excessive issues of securities and ex
cessive dividends and profits would
draw the fangs of trusts and make
them harmless. It would protect the
public against extension in the price
of commodities, without attemptizt
the impossible task of regulating
prices by law, because it would take
away all motive on the part of direc
tors to accumulate profits which could
not be distributed.

Says an item from i.larafn: Tie
Georgia farmers have started a move
ment to force the price of coatn up
to eight cents a pound. They pr 1pose
to store their cotton in warehouses
and hold it until the mills raise the
price. Arrangements .wi.l be made
for the producers to borrow on their
cotton until it is finally sold. Mass
meetings have been held in Troup,
Spalding, Butts an: other counties,
and the plan has been enthusiastical
ly adopted. The movement is at
tra'ting wide attention, and it is pro
posed to extend it throughout other
states. The movers have also de
nounced the cotton future gamblers.
Flax as a Crop.
In regard to the item of a recent
issue regarding the planting of flax,
a farmer who has planted it for sev

plant comes nicely three feet high and
beals in abundance, producing from
500 to 600 pounds per acre,' making
an income of from $30 to 50 per
acre. It is an easy crop to handle,
as it, requires very litde work and ef
