ta Ferret Law- Aiucudcit.
Tho Tax Forrcl law, which was re
peals! by the senate some lime ago
ami which ling been tho veritable
eaut of mtwh dtscuMiou In the homo
for the pait iw-o weeks wa finally
amendr-d .iih! adopted and has received
tho signature of tho Governor. The
amended niuosuro provides thut ,back
taTOscati be colloctr-d only from the
dale of statehood and the rate percent
paid the "ferret" was changed from
28 per cent to 15 per cent. The amend

Cyclones Resinning to Sprout.
A sure i-ign of spring was evidenced
on day last week when a cyclone pass
ed over Arkansas, leaving death and
destruction in its wake. A twister pass
ed through the little town of Hriuklcy,
Ark., killing thirty or more people, in
juring scores of others and destroying
property estimated atone million dol
lars. This seems rather early in the
season for cyclones and tornadoes to be
frisking around promiscuously, but it
has just about come to the puint when
it is "dangerous to be safe" at any time
so far as cyclones arc concerned.
--Cent Passenger Rate in Danger.
Ry a decision of the federal court at
Kansas City last- week by Judge Mc

declared contibcatory and unjust to the
railroads of thu great state of Missouri.
Thu decision will have much to do with
the 'J-cunt rate in other states for this
decision in favor of the railroads, will
have a tendency to encourage those
corporations to push their claims in
states haing a Iiko rate. It is alto
gether likely that the 3-ccnt rate will
Rig Fine Goes Clllmmcrlng.
Tho big fine of $20,000,000 which wa
assessed against the Standard Oil Com
pany by Judgu I.andis, at thu first trial
of that company, in which they were
charged with rebating, has gone glim
mering. At the second trial last week
in Chicago, Judge Anderson decided to
instruct thu jury to And the Standard
Oil Company not guilty, on account of
the government having not produced
evidence sufficient to prove the charges
6f rebating. The Standard's escape is
probably Uuo to thu fact they had plen
ty of "oil" to pour on the troubled
