A. rLAMM AXG "A DEMOCRAT" In a lengthy epistle to a local paper, headed ' 'General Major's Availability" one signing himself "A Democrat" takes a vitrolic pen in hand to severe ly lambast Secretary of State Roach and Attorney General Major because ! of their act in redistricting the State as the constitution requires them to do. and which was declared void be- I cause of Governor Hadley's refusal to -aeb Quoting portioira-ef-ihc opinion i of Judge Woodson, the writer ac- jcuses Messrs Roach and Major of j gross abuse of discretion, and unfair i ness and intimates a deliberate disre- gard of the provisions of the constitu j tion. , Wt do not propose to go into the ; merits of the case, but will point out i to "A Democrat" that the reversal I of an opinion by the Supreme Court ' does not signify that the giver of the J opinion is ignorant of the law; neither i does it signify that the law as written I has been in any manner disregarded, but simply denotes a difference of 'opinion in the interpretation of the law. However, we will suggest that in asmuch as Mr. Roach is the only candidate for nomination to the office to which he aspires and will be the party's nominee, and Mr. Major will, beyond doubt, be the party's choice for Governor, that "A Democrat" is placing himself in a very peculiar position indeed. If, as a Democrat, he vote for these p-entlemen at the election this fall, he must, undoubtedly, by so doing, vote for men whom he deems un worthy of the office, and therefore may be charged with insincerity. If, on the other hand, it be' his in tention to refuse to cast his vote for these men who will be at the head of the ticket at the election, he thereby, in desertuur his party, deprives him self of the privilege of assisting in its nominations, and therefore his views and opinions upon "advisability" should have but little weight with!

Senator Dixon, Roosevelt's cam pain manager announces that he will not take his family of five little girls to the Republican Convention. From all indications the Convention will certainly be no place for little chil dren. The plan of the Roosevelt manag ers to make a direct appeal for votes to every delegate involves the delicate task, according to the Republic, of asking favors from men they have denounced as being the willing bene ficiaries of fraud. George Pollock Dead. Geo. Washington Pollock, aged 68 years and 6 months, died at his home Tti this city Thursday evening, June 6, at 8:30 o'clock as the result of an attack of heart failure.

A Western Kentucky negro was in jail awaiting trial for stealing a calf. His wife called to see him. On her way out the jailer, whose name was Grady, halted her. "Mandy"' he inquired, "have you got a lawyer yet for Jim?" "Naw, sah," said the wife. "Ef Jim was guilty I'd git him a lawer right away; but he tells me he ain't guilty, and so, of cose, I ain't aimin' to hire none." "Mr. Grady," came a voice from the cells above, you tell dat nigger woman down thar to git a lawyer and git a dam1 good one too. Satur day Evening Post : . Claude D.

Is the beef trust bigger than the United States government? Made bold by its victory, after a nine years' delay in the courts, in the famous "trust-busting" suit started against it by former president Roose velt, this trust has boosted meat prices to thehigest figure ever known in this country, not even excepting war times. The trust gives a "short age in the live stock supply" as its reason for increasing prices. That this excuse is only a subter fuge is shown by the last report of of the government bureau of statis tics, which shows, instead of a short age in the live stock supply, there has been a steady increase. "The supply of cattle at the seven principal western markets in April was greater than in any April in the last decade," this report says. "The number of cattle shipped to these markets last month was greater than for the same month a year ago by 13 per cent., and greater than the pe riod for 1910 by 40 per cent There was a proportionate increase in the supply of hogs and sheep, also, and that the weight of these animals was up to the standard of former years is indicated by the fact that the supply of dressed meat now on hand in the packers' warehouses is greatly in ex cess of the amount held there last year." This report shows that the. beef trust has made up its mind to force the consumer to pay the cost of the nine years suit it has just won. All the big fees paid out to lawyers for keeping the trust magnates out of the penitentiary will be taken from the purses of the consumers. Nothing must interfere with the trust's divi dends! A sub-committee of the Judiciary committee of the Democratic House of Representatives has just started an investigation of the beef trust, and its report will be ah answer to the ques tion as to whether the beef barons are more powerful than the United States government.

Evidence has just come to light showing why the price of coffee has increased The remarkable feature of the situation is that, for once, the increase : is not due to increased wages, which I is the stock excuse the multi-millionaire owners of the industrial trusts i hand out every time they make up their minds to increase their divi ! dends at the expense of the consumer. I Coffee has increased in price, al- j though production has doubled, be cause the market supply has been I artificially restricted! A Cost-of-Living Secret? In cold storage at Detroit, Michi gan, are 15000 quarts of fresh ber ries. They are held out of the mar ket to keep the price high. Thus capital uses refrigeration, invented to benefit man, for the purpose of ex ploiting man. The Real Plunderers. Mr. Roosevelt has repeatedly de nounced "boss rule" during his cam paign. He has held up to scorn the Penroses, Lbrimers and the Coxes and other bosses not for Roosevelt as typifying the evils of present day politics. Everyone admits that such men as these should be ousted from power. But are these men, after all, really the greatest danger to this republic? John D. Rockefeller who has hoard ed up a fortune of $900,000,000 through sharp practice and legislative favoritism is not a boss. Andrew Carnegie is not a political boss. J. Pierpoint Morgan, who is so anxious to have Roosevelt nominated, was never accused of being a political boss. George W. Perkins, who orig inated the illegal harvester trust and is financing Roosevelt's campaign ac cording to sworn statements of the Roosevelt campaign committees, is not a boss. The millionaire owners of the woolen trust and the sugar trust and the steel trust are I not The boss issue is largely a false is sue. The men who are plundering the people directly and making the common people dissatisfied with the way things are going under this form of government are chiefly the multi millionaire owners of the tariff trusts. now engaged in financing the Roose velt campaign. In order to return the colonel to the White House so he THE QUALITY STORE can give instructions to his attorney general not to start suit against illegal trusts like the harvester trust until he gives the word. Rockefeller Gets Million a Week. Administration of the government by Republicans is a good thing for John D. Rockefeller. Through the collection of rebates from railroads, a practice that his competitors were not allowed to indulge in, and aided by a tariff wall which enabled him to build up a monopoly without fear of competition from abroad he has built up his $900,000,000,000 fortune. From the oil industry, and subsidiary indus tries, which the high tariff advocates still refer to as "infants" yet in need of a protective tariff, Mr. Rockefeller derives an income of approximately $2 a second. The Rockefeller income at the present time, as near as finan cial experts have been able to esti mate it, is $60,000,000 a year, $5,000, 000 a month, $1, 153,846 a week, $164, 735 a day, $6,863 an hour, $114 a minute, or $1.90 a second! A girl working in a store for $5 a week would have to labor 4,438 years to earn as much as the unequal, un fair and unjust laws of this nation permit Rockefellow to draw down every week. William Wood, president of the woolen trust, testified in court not long ago that he had no idea as to the number of automobiles he owned. J. P. Morgan, it was recently an- nounced, now has an art collection worth $60,000,000. Andrew Carne gie, it is well known, has 'lost all track" of his wealth. These are the plunderers of Ameri ca. In order that they and the horde of lesser millionaires who enjoy their privileges under the law may pile ud such fortunes, every reader of this article, whether a man, woman or child, must pay tribute. This tribute is paid in the form of unnecessarily mgn prices for food, clothing and shelter. Labor Organizations for Major. Representatives of twenty labor or ganizations met at the Labor Temple and organized a "Mainr for Governor" club. A resolution was adopted which praised the work of Elliott W. Major as a legislator and as attorney general. John T. FHz patrick was chosen president, O. M. Hamlin, vice-president and L. R. Hanavan, secretary. K. C. Star.
