According to Congressman Henry nt Texas, ranking member "t tbe Honse tlndieiar) Committee, trnal legislation "ill be given consider able ittention at the approaching session of Congress, Hesaystbal one thing tlmt will i- pnshed in earnest is tbe amending of tbe Sherman anti-trust law with a view to eliminating the Supreme Court's "rule ut reason" interpretation of the law. It is tin' opinion ol man) leading publicists and lawyers that tbe court transcended its authority in practioally writing the word "unreasonable" into that elause of the law prohibiting the restraint of trade, thus virtually weakening tbe criminal elause it not to all in tent anil purpose annulling- it. New Mexico, one ol the new States, whs relied upon by the Re publicans, and not without reason, DRt at its first election as h !ate last week the Democrats elected their Ooveroor by majority of 2,000 and the entire State ticket, betides two Congressmen , The Republicans will have a majority of about ten on joint ballot in the Legislature, owing to the Republi can gerrymandering of the Repre sentative districts. This will give then the two United states Sena tors lrom that state. The Su preme Court will consist of two Democrats and one progressive Ke pnblican. It locks as i( New Mi x ico may give its electoral vote to the Democrats in 1912, as well as Arizona, which was admitted with New Mexico.

Two years und a half of his administration as President bad passed, und it Ins record wore one that met the approval of the conn try, how quickly the people, espe cially those of Ins own State, would have responded, But his home city.

Not only Cincinnati, but Lo-1 lumbua, Cleveland, aud tbe other important cities of the state went Democratic . Nor was the revul sion against Mr. Taft's adminis tration aud policy in the cities alone the same feeling existed in the country districts as tbe result of the election of delegates to a i (institutional Convention show. One hundred and nineteen of these were elected, aud of the numlier 70 were Democrats, giving them a clear working majority of 19 over Keputjlicans, Independents and So cialist, in a body that has to deal with the organic law of tbe State. Among the Independents and So cialists arc a number of progres sives, so that the basic law of "a State which this body will offer toiK"v"n" o political campaign the people for ratification promises to he a decidedly progressive docu ment. President Taft and his staudpHt bucking nre rebuked by Mr. Taft's own State.

Such a primary is uoi going in be held not ihis year anyway and so Mr. Heney had another conclusion lo offer ami it was this: "President 1 aft will be renomi nated by a parly convention and beaten by the i pie at the polls." li it should he urged that Presi dent l aft had been doing some trav eling himself, ami doubtless has learned of some things, it should be remembered that President Taft isn't ing about the things In- learned, and Mr Heney is. Besides, Mr Heney was not traveling as President of the United Btates, and fancies he got a little closer to tin people than the President, "i do not base my conclusions on what i learned In the progressive States of the West," Mr. Heney said. "I have been making speech es in New York and Pennsylvania as well. 1 have been to the small towns and in tin country districts, and everywhere I found tbe name sentiment.

Democracy or an Oligarchy of QoldP Former Senator Aldrlch is still mi the job. He's on it more than ever. The job Is different ; that 's all. Delivering both ends of Congress and both parties to the money trust is no small task, hut that's what Aldrlch seems to be trying to do. The "Aldrich hank plan" is a scheme to "reform" ojjr hanking and currency laws, and thereby cre ate a government-authorised trust for the exclusive control of the na tion's credits. Huch control Is at present nearly an accomplished fact. The Morgan group is practically without compe tition In the financial world to-day. i here in no man, Ducinoss or cor poration big enough to defy "IT." The example of Helnseand Morse, the spectacle of the absorption of I LVHUMNV mil lion, ine MiaKlllg down of the Knickerbocker Trust are warnings sufficient to oonvlnm ine mis man who is sane. Standard OH Is now in the Mor gan partnei ship. Kallmads, insur ance companies and industrial con cerns, the heart and arteries of tin commercial body of the lulled States, are in the grip of the 'un crowned king." The hanks of tht country look to it as the governing influence. Hut why not give all this a legal form .' V by 1101 charter this mo nopoly? Why not turn all the gov srnment's fiscal operations over ti the gigantic trust so chartered' Why not transfer the money-Issuing function from tlie treasury depart ment'.' Why not make this money trust the recipient of all government deposits without Interest? Why not concentrate In the bands of a few financiers who now control the Mor gan concerns all the power in tlie 'business and financial world? Why I not give the power to make prosper ity or to break prosperity into these hands? That power would then he the i iniiu oe nimie iiKiiiiisi 11 iveiorm would mean "hard times.'' Tlx credit trust would give the order to curtail. Money would be scarce. Loans would he difficult; banks would get their orders to hold their cash reserves. The country would be helpless. The creutlon of this money trust; the chartering by Congress of this monster fiscal holding company, Is the task to which former Senator Aldrich has dedicated his rime and strength. He calls it "currency reform."

To he sure this pleasing effect of combining poetrj with music was tried as long ago as tOSSJ by Pureed. But Puree!) s i found out that be was ahead of his time and quit, in the first half of the eighteenth century, however, peoppi wearied of just plain drama and tragedy, so when Biekerstafl ami Beggars nod Debdin, between 17-s and 1780, produced Snusical dramas, tin- populace rallied. It was something new and It pleased them. Since then the opera has en joyed a steady growth It gave a new impulse to vocalisation j it prompted emotional singing: it started the tremulo, and gjve a new field for expression ill music never before thought ot. Sunny ami emo tional Italy has set the pace in op era, and so distant is her lead thai the rest of the otvlllsed world is now wondering whether or not an opera rendered in any tongue but the Italian can be as effecllvi aud musical.
