SPRINGFIELD, - - • COLORADO TOBACCO TRUST WATERS STOCK SCORES OF MILLIONS OF DOL LARS OF “GOOD WILL” CAPITALIZED. PROFITS ENORMOUS COMMISSIONER HERBERT KNOX BMITH MAKES REPORT TO PRESIDENT. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Washington.—The commissioner of corporations, Herbert Knox Smith, sets forth In a report to the President the Intricate financial side of the American Tobacco Company, familiar ly known as the tobacco trust, and which now Is in process of dissolu tion, by order of the Supreme Court of the United States, because it was a combination in restraint of trade in violation of the Sherman anti-trust law. It was the second part of a report on the tobacco industry and deal with the earnings, capitalization and invest ment of the great tobacco combina tion. The commissioner says that the vast earning power which arose from the substantial control of the tobacco industry was a inonopaly resulting from concentration. The capitaliza t!on of this monopolistic power was much greater than the actual invest ment and by clever arrangement the bulk of the earnings were centere 1 in the hands of a small group of in dividuals. The enormous profits resulting from the Inflation of the securities and the dividends paid thereon, the report con cludes, rested in their ultimate analy sis upon the monopolistic advantages obtained in the tobacco industry through concentration of control. The report shows the vast earning power that arises from substantial control of a large industry. The great tobacco combination, which center.! round the American Tobacco Compa ny, started in 1890 with $25,000,000 capitalization, operating only in cigar ettes. By 1908 it controlled about four-fifths of the whole domestic to bacco industry, except cigars, and its net capitalization exceeded $316,000,- 000. This concentration is the basis of the combination's great earning power. High rates of earnings have gone with monopolistic control of the Industry, and the less the degree of control the less the rate. In IS9O the combination's earnings were over eighteen per cent, on the actual investment. They rose in 1891 to more than twenty-one per cent. It was then operating principally, and with a practical monopoly, In cigar ettes. In 1895 came expansion Into other branches, a keen competitive struggle, and a sharp drop in earnings. But by 1900 the combination’s broad domination of the whole Industry took effective shape. Its earnings from that date cover the great bulk of the Industry. In 1901 they were thirteen per cent., In 1903 over sixteen per cent, and from 1904 to 1908 the aver age was nineteen per cent, or $31,200, 000 yearly. This was the earning power of sub stantial monopoly, the result of the concentration above stated. Samuel C. Lawrence Dead. Medford, Mass. —Samuel C.

Fire destroyed the Eisen winery, six miles east of Fresno, Calif., causing a loss of $150,000. The business section of Kamlsh, Idaho, suffered a $60,000 fire, which practically destroyed the town. The W. C. T. U. of Humboldt, Kan., indorses the working of women on zhain-gangs, whenever they de serve it. Warring Republican .factions of Kansas buried the hatchet and walked side by side to honor President Taft on his visit to that state. Fire destroyed more than half of the business section of Midvale, Idaho, causing loss estimated in excess of $20,000, about half covered by insur ance. Nearly 2,000,000 pounds of tea, val ued at $500,000, is held up in San Francisco, pending an examination to determine whether coloring substance has ben added in the process of cur ing. Sugar, which has been selling at re tail in Denver at the rate of twelve or thirteen pounds for a dollar, will now sell at ten or eleven pounds for a dollar as the result of a sharp advance announced In the wholesale price. This Is an advance of $2 per hundred within sixty days. The general impression of a land of Icebergs and bleak headlands l s given a much softer tone by the an nual report of Alaskan agricultural experiment stations, Just issued. The report is by Q. C. Georgson, special agent. Potatoes, for example, are proving a most successful crop In that far northern region, and are men tioned in the report as one of the big agricultural possibilities of the territory—a most valuable contribu tion to the food supply of the country. Representatives of the railroads were the chief witnesses before Intei state Commerce Commissioner Prouty at the wool-rate hearing in Salt testifying on long haul shipments, competition, and the desirability of wool as freight. J. A. Reeves, general freight agent of the Oregon Short Line, asserted that the present rates on wool and pelts were not unreason able and could not well stand reduc tion. The wool men had an inning after which the hearing was conclud ed. They offered corroborative testi mony to show the condition of the wool-growing industry and how It would be helped by a reduction of rail road rates. WASHINGTON. John R. Walsh, the Chicago bank er, will be paroled at Leavenworth im mediately will be given his freedom and will be permitted to return to his family.

A war engine invented by Marquis Imperial!,• while undergoing tests at Montichiari, Italy, exploded, with ter rific force. Six persons were killed and sixteen seriously injured. Among the wounded was the marquis. Fire broke out In the ammunition hold of the French battleship Llberte, near Marseilles, and a terrific explo sion followed, blowing the ship open, and 500 of the crew are reported drowned. The long period of national anxiety attendant on the Moroccan negotia tions is drawing toward a satisfactory conclusion. The French people have been slow In accepting the optimism that has prevailed in Berlin for sev eral days and now sufficient reasons appeared for the conviction that the six months uncertainty is nearing an end. Reciprocity with the United States suffered an overwhelming defeat in the Canadian election. By a political landslide the Liberal majority of for ty-three was swept away, and the Con servative party secured one of the heaviest majorities, upward of fifty, that any Canadian party has ever had. Seven cabinet ministers who had served with Premier Laurler were among the defeated candidates. The Amalgamated Society of Rail way Servants of Ireland have called a general strike on the Irish railways. Far from the companies showing any signs of yielding, they began to lock out large bodies of men employed in the locomotive and other works. The Irish export trade, by which the bulk of the people live, has practically epased. The Italian government is moving rapidly and with determination. If Turkey refuses their proposals In the Tripoli trouble, war will follow. Nothing funnier than the school boys' strike has happened In London in these days of strikes. Fired by the recent example of their olders, the youngsters, north, south, east and west of London, refused to go to school at the close of the summer holidays, and issued manifestoes and nailed them to the walls of the schools demanding no whippings, no home work, more holidays and less drill.

He tried to say something, but the words stuck In his throat, and the girl, noticing this, turned the gas even lower. Suddenly he turned to her and cried, "I’m a dub!” “No,” sho said, fondly. “You don’t appreciate yourself as well as some others do, perhaps. Tee, hee!” “Yes,” he persisted stubbornly, “I’m a dub!” “No,” she maintained. “Yes," he almost shouted, “I’m a dub!” She was a sensible girl, and so, real izing that he ought to know best, she thanked him kindly for warning hev In time and handed him his hat. It was only after the door slammed be hind him forever that she realized the awful truth. He had contracted a nasty cold, and what he had been trying to say was, “I’m In love!"
