President Wilson, Criticised for Sign
ing Measure, Proves He Doesn’t
Intend It Shall Hamper De
partment of Justice.
Washington. President Wilson,
through the department of justice, it
is said is going to try to show that
there was foundation for the promise
made when he signed the sundry civil
bill that cases against labor unions ac
cused of violating the Sherman law
would be prosecuted even in the face
of the exempting clause which was
contained in that measure.
There was much criticism of the
president’s action in signing the bill
which contained the clause. It was
called class legislation and it also was
said that in spirit it was unconstitu
tional. The letter of the law was
made so that it would stand the test
of constitutionality.
There are of course all kinds of
varying views on the subject of the
wisdom and the right of congress to
attempt to exempt labor unions and
associations of farmers engaged in co
operative work from the action of the
Sherman law. President Taft vetoed
as one of the last acts of his admin
istration a sundry civil bill which con
tained the same exemption clause that
appears in the present sundry civil
bill which President Wilson signed
and Is now a law. The measure as
passed contained this paragraph:
“For the enforcement of the anti
trust laws, $300,000; provided, how
ever, that no part of this money shall
be spent in.the prosecution of any or
ganization or individual for entering
into any combination or agreement
having in view the increasing of
wages, shortening of hours, or better
ing the conditions of labor or for any
act done in furtherance thereof not in
itself unlawful; provided, further,
that no part of this appropriation shall
be expended for the prosecution of
producers of farm products and asso
ciations of farmers who co-operate and
organize in an effort to and for the
purpose of obtaining and maintaining
a fair and reasonable price for their
Prosecution of John P. White.
Recently Attorney General Mcßey
nolds undertook the prosecution of
John P. White, president of the Unit
ed Mine Workers’ Union of America,
on the charge of conspiring to restrain
trade and commerce. Labor col
leagues of Mr. White were included
in the prosecution, with the United
States government as the prosecutor.
The funds which were used by attor
ney general of the White case were
not taken from the money provided
for the enforcement of the anti-trust
President Taft was praised for ve
toing the appropriation bill which con
tained the identical clause. After
President Wilson who had expressed
on many occasions disapproval of
class legislation so called signed the
bill, the country was surprised, or at
any rate manifestations of surprise
were in evidence in most of the pa
pers of the country, and were not con
fined to journals advocating the
cause of the Democratic party and
standing staunchly in support of the
general acts of the administration.
When he signed the bill, President
Wilson said: “I can assure the coun
try that this item will neither limit nor
in any way embarrass the actions of
the department of justice. Other ap
propriations supply the department
with abundant funds to enforce the
law. The law will be interpreted in
the determination of what the depart
ment shall do by independent, and, I
hope, impartial judgments as to the
true and just meaning of substantive
statutes of the United States.”
Plan for Alaska Railway.
Almost unquestionably congress is
to order the construction by the
government of a railroad in Alaska.
Uncle Sam will own the railroad
after It is built and it may be that
he will operate it In his address
to congress when it met in reg
ular session President Wilson recom
mended that the territorial road should
be built and “administered” by the
government. “Administered” is taken
generally here as in this case being a
synonym for “operated.”
It is likely that a railroad 400 miles
long will be authorized by the ex
pected legislation, and that the law
authorizing the road’s construction
will be so framed as to leave the ques
tion of private or government opera
tion to the discretion of the president
of the United States. j>
The chances are that this first ven
ture of Uncle Sam into the railroad
ownership field will be made under the
guidance of a law framed largely by
How Carefully European Countries
G<-rrd Their Borders Is Shown
by This Incident.
A frontier incident occurred re
cently when a lieutenant of the aero
plane fleet at Posen, Germany, was
taking part in scouting practice early
In the morning. A slight fog arose
and a few minutes later the rattle of
musketry and a hole in the wing of
his machine showed that he had been
espied by the Russian sentinels. The
lieutenant thought it advisable to
descend, and had a very friendly re
ception from the Russian captain,
who regretted that he was unable to
settle the affair himself, and must
take the aviator and his machine to
headquarters 20 miles away. There
being no railways, the lieutenant fore
saw a long delay, and proposed as a
shorter and pleasanter method that
the Russian captain should accom
pany him thither on his machine; if
not forbidden by the regulations. The
regulations apparently did not provide
for such a case, and the Russian cap

Will Open Up Alaska.
The Alaska railroad bill already
prepared and which seems to have
: President Wilson’s approval makes de
tailed pi'ovision for the opening of the
interior of Alaska to quick communi
cation with the harbors of the Pacific
ocean, so that agriculture, timber, coal
and other resources may be developed.
I One salient feature of the measure
is the extension of the power of the
interstate commerce commission to
. Alaska, coupled with a special pro
vision that the rates for steamship
transportation to and from the terri
tory shall be regulated. The asser
tion is made that water transportation
monopoly has been one of the chief
causes for the control of Alaska’s re
' sources by one great syndicate.
Shuts Out Monopolies.
[ The contemplated legislation pro
j vides for the location of town sites.
The acquisition of land for monopoly
. holdings is prohibited and no person
( or corporation can acquire land for the
! purpose of holding it in idleness. The
proponents of the measure say that
every safeguard has been taken to pre
' vent the exploitation of Alaska for
the profit of monopolies, and that the
field will be found to be open for
l .
competitive strivings.”
Under the terms of the bill the
| president is authorized at his descre
' tion to take over the holdings of rail
roads already in operation in Alaska.
’ Any property belonging to the United
! States now in use in Panama canal
1 construction and which can be of serv
ice in Alaska will be transferred from
the canal strip to the territory, to be
used in railroad building when the en
gineers on the Canal Zone declare that
their work is finished. The financial
provisions of the bill instruct the sec
retary of the treasury to borrow $35,-
611,000 on the credit of the United
States and to issue bonds in the de
nominations of SIOO to SI,OOO. The
sum of $1,000,000 is set aside for ad
ministration purposes.
Good Roads Favored.
Before long congress expects a
report from its joint committee on
federal aid in the construction of
post roads. It is believed by the
members that legislation for a gov
ernment appropriation for highway
building throughout tne country will
be made an administration matter,
and enacted into law with the sanc
tion of both houses with very few
signs of division on party lines. The
several states, in order to secure gov
ernment aid in road building, will be
called upon to appropriate their pro
rata share of the money.
The joint committee has Jonathan
Bourne, Jr., as its chairman. Mr.
Bourne is no longer in congress, but
he still retains his committee mem
bership. He has formulated his own
plans for good roads and his example
has been followed by Senator Swan
son of Virginia and by Representative
Shackleford of Missouri.
Bourne’s Ambitious Plan.
The plan of former Senator Bourne
is ambitious. He would like to have
the government issue $1,000,000,000 in
bonds, the issue and the sale “not to
exceed such amounts as may be nec
essary from time to time to enable
the treasurer of the United States to
make payments from the United States
highway fund to the several states in
accordance with the provisions of this
It is a part of Mr. Bourne’s plan to
have the money accredited to the
states in proportion to their total land
area, their population, their assessed
valuation of taxable property, and the
total mileage of public highways. On
the basis of appropriations amounting
to $1,000,000,000, and provided that all
the requirements of the act shall be
complied with, the different states will
get large sums of money varying of
course with the size and wealth of the
commonwealths. Illinois, for instance,
would get about $40,000,000, while its
neighbor state, Missouri, would get
about $35,000,000 sums which it would
seem would build several miles of fair
ly good' roadway.
What Shackleford Proposes.
Representative Shackleford, who is
a member of the joint committee, has
allowed some of his views on the sub
ject to be known In advance of the
committee’s report. He has no such
vaulting money-spending ambitions as
those which seem to be lodged in Mr.
Bourne’s head. It is probable that his
views more nearly coincide with those
of the average member of congress. In
truth it is likely that Mr. Shackleford's
scheme, which he already has put Into
bill form, will be found to agree pret
ty closely with the provisions of the
good roads measure as it finally re
ceives the sanction of the two houses.
In ihe Shackleford bill, in accord
ance with the state's rights and con
stitutional method as they appeal to
the Democratic mind,' the money asked
is to be used in the construction and
maintenance of rural post roads. Now
rural post roads generally are the
highways of the state, but the fact
that Uncle Sam makes no use of them,
and that they connect with roads lead
ing into adjoining states, makes the
matter doubly safe from the stand
point of the strict constitutionalists,
or at any rate the Demnp.-ats seem to
think so.
tain consented. Both oWlcers set off
after a cordial luncheon party, but in
consequence of defective motor the
lieutenant was compelled to make a
premature descent. To the equal sur
prise of both officers the park in
which they landed was German soil.
Consequently the tables were turned,
and the lieutenant had to take the
captain as his prisoner, i Both were
rather amused by the misadventure,
and were especially glad that they
were able to enter Germany without
risking a volley from German rifles.
Rich Man’s Advantage.

Washington legislator. “He was dis

on© of those rare interpreters who
bring her wonders within the compre

late Lord Avebury (Sir John Lub

for simple anting which he employ
ed' in the production of such works
as “The Story of the Heavens,” “Star
land,” “In Starry Realms” and “In
the High Heavens.” These books prob
ably did more than any others of the
kind to stimulate the study of astron
omy and make it popular. The people
of this generation owe a large debt
to Sir Robert Ball. The debt was
freely acknowledged in his own coun
try, where he received substantial rec
ognition from the government, from
scientific societies, from schools and
universities. It has been less freely
but still sufficiently acknowledged in

Fred Poor of the supply department
of the postoffice has been commuting
this winter between here and a town
just north of Lawrence. One day,
wearied from a late business engage
ment the night before, he fell asleep
in the seat and was in sound slumber
when the train passed the bridge in
Sight of the falls at Lawrence. An en
thusiastic fellow-passenger, going over
the road for the first time, was so in
terested at the sight of the splashing
water that he thought it a pity the
young man should be deprived of the
opportunity to witness the scene. And
so he awakened Poor out of sound
sleep that he might behold it. Consid
ering that he had seen the falls twice
[ daily for months, it required a rare
summoning of amiability to look
pleased. But he did so.
Blamed It on Medicine.
Seasickness affects people different

in the spirit manifested by a certain
small sinner who, by reason of his
poor health, had been subjected to
various kinds of unpleasant medical
treatment. Fairchild was taken out
for an ocean sail, with direful conse
quences. He kept silence as long as
he could, but at last even his good
nature revolted. Between paroxysms
he angrily addressed his mother.
“I told you never, never again to
give me medicine without telling me
about it. I’d lots rather.know when
I’m going to be sick!”
Missed the Flood Story.
Sir William Tfeloar recently told a
story of a Servant who was once em
ployed at his Cripples’ Home at Alton,
says the Tatler. One day during lunch
time there was a heavy downfall of
rain, and Sir William said to the little
maid who was waiting at table, "Why,
Lizzie, it is almost like the Flood.”
“The Flood, Sir William?” said the
girl. “Yes, the Flood. Noah, you
know and Mount Ararat.” “I never
have no time to look at the papers,”
she replied apologetically.
Had One Hope.
A little English lad, much impressed
by his nature reading, built an ama
teur nest in a tall tree and confided
to an adult friend his hope of finding
eggs in it.
“But birds build their own nests,
