The public was given to understand that it wa the ettied purpose of Uie authori ties at Washington to do this with as little delay as possible after the reor ganization ot the department. The im- preHbiun conveyed was that the presi dent and the attorney general, and-jn-deed all the members of the administra tion wera anxious to enfoioe; the law against truets and combinations just as soon as it was practical to do so. Vet, after eix months not a single step has boon taken, so far as the public knows, to interfere with the.operations of exist ing trusts or to put any check, upoe the growth of this class of monopoly. The combinations flourish to-day with as much freedom as at any time, and if the trust moncpoly is not growing now as rapidly as formerly it is because the Held is almost fully occupied or tbe con ditions favoring such combinations, are less favorably thai; formerly. S far as known, the adequacy ot tbe anti-trust law is riot quettioued. The federal courts havo affirmed its constitu tionality and tho ablest legal minds in tho country have expressed tho opinion that it is sufficient to suppress every trust and combination in restraint of trade or for controlling production and prices that exists. It is mandatory in requiring United States district Attor neys to proceed igainst tbe monopolistic organizations which inhibits. The peo ple want the law enforced. It has been practically a dead letter since it was en acted, and in the meantime numerous combinations which it was intended to prevent have been formotl and;are now doing businoss in violation of the law. The longer these are permitted to con tinue the more difficult it will be tosup- p reus them. There will never be n mora auspicious time than the present to test the anti-truit law, and the ad ainist ra tion can increase its claim to public con fidence by an early effort to make effec tive thia legislation.

They aro the pitiable remnant of bo m times, the strauded ones who put all they bad in this drought-cured country, and have been unable to get away or un willing to give up, hoping on, even when all reasonable ground for hope was gone.

The pity of it in that so many bad to lose their all and suffer untold, hardships to demon strate this fact, which ought to have been reasonably certain before. The prediction of ths: Journal at 'the timo ot the Cherpkee Strip opening is being verified very speedily. People who rushed into the new country without provisions or money .are suffering (or food.

Some peoplo think it is a greater volume of currency that Is needed. But there was. plenty of employment at good wages. Why thia remarkable change since tbe presidential election last fall? Let every man do u little thinking for himself. Is it not true that the Democratic party served notice 00 oil concerned that the industrial policy of the party in powers thirty years is to be reversed? That was tbe era of America's greatest progress. All this is to be changed. -Hereafter tbe maker of goods in America must pre pare himself to make them at such a cost as to be able to put them on the market here as cheap as Birmingham, Leeds and Sheffield. The American manufacturer is paying attention to the change in things and times. He is getting ready to meet this new and formidable-, and cheap competition or about to quit altogether because he cannot manufacture goods at the ex pense formerly and sell;them as cheaply as the new competitor. The mills close, the working men ara.unemployed. They seek other employment; they enter tbe general labor market and compete xith all labor. Competition brings down prices. Wages fall. But this is not all. Working moo out, of employment, or on reduced wages, are forced to econo mize. They don't buy as much cloth iog, furniture, household goods and other merchandise and products. Con sumption falls off. That diminishes trado. Lees goods are manufactured; less farm products consumed. All this tends to the stagnation of business. Now, who is benefitted by this Democratic policy of restriction? What are the ad vantages of this free trade era over tbe Republican era ot business activity? Thev sav a man will get bis clothes cheaper after a while, but what good does that do if he has no employment. no money to buy clotaas with? Besides, clothing and all tbe necessaries of life have been growing cheaper year by year under tbe protective system, until a man can buy a good suit cf clothes for eicht or ten dollars. There Is noth iaa in our hietorv to encourage tbe be lief that a free trade policy wdl bring better times. So far e have -only tbi Democratic promise that it will do so. The nearer tbe people approach tbe tree trade era, tbe less tbey like the symp tons. All -Ktioble Eudiujr. It is too early at this time to discuss the nature of tne compromise which has been adopted, or is about to be adopted in the interest ot a disrupted political party. Whatever its nature may prove to be, or whether Mr. Clevelaud will make good his insistence on the fulfill ment of the purpose of bis extra session by adjourning congress, the correctness uf the proposition is beyond question, as stated in these columns recently, that tbe administration will be compelled at once either to Csb or cut bait. Mr. Cleveland must adjourn congress or else he must submit to a compromvso with the silver adherents ot his harty. It has been evident from the outset that the isdue has been between Grover Cleveland and the body ot bis party. Thus far the party has proven to be the greater. It is a free silver party, which for the plain purpose of capturing the federal offices nominated him for the presidency in tbe face of bis repeated declarations ot unfaltering hostility to the coinage of tbe white metal. It is a party of revenue tariff which made him president, notwithstanding bia refusal to commit himself to tbe doctrine which he himrelf had forced upon the party, but in tbe.wist'.om of which a former de feat bad seriously shaken his faith. It is the party which bears on its banners the legend, "To the Victors Belong the Spoils," and it chose him, an avowed civil service reformer, to act as grand distributor. It has itsolf to blame if, in all respects, except witb reference to the Jacksonisn declaration, he has spat up on its preferences and scorned its prin-cinlea. If a compromise should be effected, what a spectacle will be presented to the country! What a universal swal lowing of avowed nrinci Dies will be in augurated along the lines of tbe party! .Whatan exulted position in the domain ot consistent statesmanship will be oc cupied by the administration leaders in the bouse like Wilson and Cockran! On the other side we have heard the cry. "Free Silver lor Nothing." What will the silver patriots now do to cover up their shame when at the command of the executive they vole in tavor ot tne issuance of $100,000,000 or so of gold bonds. There may be a compromise st this time, but it will be a compromise which will once mora make.. plain the utter absence of a single ground en which Democrats in national politico are in general ageement. except alone in regard to divesting the black man of the south .of all the guarantees of the rights of life, liberty, property, .and tbe Iran chise which his American citizenship is supposed to have conferred on him, The country is now prepnrea ror- any thing. It has bod an exhaustive expe rience as to tne directions in wnicn Democratic national coutrol runs. Aoth- ine which may now. be done can result otherwise than in an improvement, .of existing conditions. m tbeir rutht to vote as they please will have been removed. The Democrats assert that these laws are an interfer ence, with the legal rights ot the citizen. that thev restrain the voter from cast ing a ballot to suit hirusell and mat tbey tend to vitiate me dbiioi oox as bo expression of the people's choice. These j assertions ara false. The very opposite, is true. As far as they go they act as 11 protection against fraud or violence, a protection that is needed it the purity of our Bystem of government is to be maintained. As tbe Hartford Couraot says: "Their enactment makes crimes against tbe elective franchise .mora difficult and more dangerous. There repeal will make such crimes easier and safer." There is not known a single instance where those election laws have bad the effect charged by the Democrats. There is not a case on record showing that an honest voter by these laws has been .de prived of his privileges. But there are numerous cases on record snowisg tout fraudulent voting bas prevailed. The Democratic oartv wants those laws re pealed in order that it may with greater impunity trample on popular ngaus anu convert the ballot-box into a machine for carrying out its political purposes instead ot for registering tbe will of the people. This is tbe only motive behind th effort for reneal. It is not their solicitation for tbe integrity ot popular government. They simply want a chance to destroy popular government and nut in its place the despotic rule of their own party. They have no use for people, except to defraud and put aown tLaee whose aunrjort thov cannot win by hnnorable means. This is the socrel ot their opposition to the federal election laws and their desire to have them re- But the election laws aro not repealed vt. definite theentror ilf nire of theCleve- land administration to push the repeal. And may be there is a love ot an honest ballot in tbe senate strong enough to thwart tbe plan of repeal. Epworth League topic for Sunday, let. 251, 18SO-.

There have been an appalling number of railroad disasters in tbe past lew months, and probably a greater number uf people have been killed and crippled than ever before in.tbe.eame lecgtb .of time. J some cases the disasters bave been caused by gross carelessness, on the nart of the employes. It is a singular fact that all these serious aecidenta have happened east of tbe 'Mississippi river, Jiot one. on a line wettofthat river. Traffic on western lines has been bear? for some months, double passenger service having been provided on many, occasions, and yet so careful has been the management that we have hod scarcely a single mishap to to record. Thia speaks well for, western railroad . management. St. Joseph Herald.
