CARDINAL GIBBONS AGAINST TRUSTS
Cardinal James Qlbbons believes the public has a night to exercise intel
ligent control over corporations which serve it with necessities, in a recent
public utterance the distinguished churchman denounced monopolists as heart
less and said they exhibit a grasping avarice which has dried up every senti
ment of sympathy and created a sordid selfishness which is deaf to cries of
justice and fair treatment.
SEEING THE CAPITAL
STATUARY HALL A SIGHT NOT TO
Place Where the States Set Up Sta
tues of Their Dead Statesmen
As a Warning to the
Btatuary hall in the eapltol Is the
place where the states set up statuos
of dead statesmen
as a warning to
. the living. Any
ever had any as
pirations to ho
great usually Is
cured after ono
look at the stat
ues there. No
matter how loudly
the call of fame sounds In his ears ho
If apt to think twice before he takes
a step that will put him on a pedestal
In a pair of baggy trousers and a coat
that hikes up In the collar.
)n an ngo when statesmen wore a
different stylo of clothing tlipn Is now
the fashion, a statue, when turned out
by a skilled union statue builder fre
quently was not only a work of art,
but looked something like the person
It was intended lo represent. Jn the
days of togas and such like flowing
raiment, when statesmen went bare
legged and two-button vests and swal
low-tailed coats were unknown, sta
tues wero all right ; and it was worth
a statesman's while to conduct him
self In such a manor as to win one
after he became cold in death.
With nil duo respect for the late
trainers of the constitution, they were
not, as a rule, built on physical lines
adapted to being gracefully reproduced
in cold marble, particularly when the
sculpturing Is done by Infant prodigy
homo talent. We have the greatest ad
miration for the live pronged intellect
possessed by the lato Mr. Sam Adams I
fcef Massachusetts. He spoke some of
.the best pieces ever heard In Boston
?l a time when every patriot was work
ing overtime thinking up sassy things
to say about the king of England. It
is to Mr. Adams that American his

tory I? chiefly Indebted for tha notion
lll?t_Qsorge_. 1H._ was a, d?ej>,_wily,
clever tyrant?when us fi matter or
fact ho was a harmless olil gentloman
subject to fits, and passed most of his
time tied up to the bedpost, counting
the buttons on his vest. IJut, to get
back to tho point, Mr. Adams while
endowed with an Intellect that would
give an ordinary man a headache was
not exactly an Apollo in form. Pon
dering over state questions had given
him something closely akin to a dou
bio chin, and even tho tongue of Hat
te? y would hesitate to ascribe to him
an. 'hing that could be described na a
wa.r.t line. Had Mr. Adams been a
Roman proconsul the sculptor would
havo represented him In a bathrobo,
with a battle ax In bis hand, and such
llttlo physical defects as have been
pointed out would not be noticed. Hut
attirod as a substantial citizen of Bos
ton, at a time when tailors were still
proceeding on the theory that the mas
culine form was a thing of beauty and
adorned in knee pants, a spiked tal,nd
coat and a frilled shirt, the Massachu
setts patriot does not look to the aver
ago spectator like a man capable of
teetering the throne of England.
Some Improvement in tho general
offect of statuary hall might be pro
duced if the sculptors did better team
work. A convention of statuary hail
.sculptors which would adopt rules and
regulations and some sort of uniform
specifications undoubtedly would make
for good. Tho Hrst thing such cooper
at ion should strive for should be a
standardization of statues as to size.
As it is. no two are executed on tho
same scale, and as a result what might
l)e Called Iho sky line of statuary hall
Is very bad. ? vriitlc, consideration
aside, tho conclusions Invited by com
parisons arc most unjust to the states
men represented. Some are giants in
size and some are dwarfs. Uniformity
of style in the matter of clothes also
would work Improvement, it is not
too harsh a criticism to say that the
average tit of clothing in statuary hall
is very poor, and a good consulting
tailor would not be a bad addition to
tho staff of sculptors.
Still, as has been pointed out. statu
ary hall has Its uses. Aspiring con
gressmen who paws through ? every
day derlvd therefrom a wholesome
chastening effect such as could bo con

Is a.Macey Book Cabinet
To set one of the new Macey Book Cabinets in your liome is
to set before yom children an example of such good taste that
throughout all the days of their lives they will (eel its refining
influence. ?ffjjfff?jtf .?'-??????<^p?&?> j.?6*tf(f
' Macey Book Cabinets are the first sectionnl bookcases ever
built after the designs of the old masters. These old masters,
Sheraton, Chippendale, Robert Adam and I-ra Junipero, were
s? great in Furniture na Shakespeare in Literature, as Mozart in
Music, as Michael Angelo in Painting. ^WMMV1 """^A,
The new Macey Book Cabinets are the only sectional book
cases that can be added to, both upward and sideways, and still
not look like sectional bookcases, but like heirlooms of furniture.
Can be taken from or rearranged without destroying their beauty
and style, ^/yv^^^..,'^ .
So artful is the cabinet work that dealers frequently have to
take them apart to convince customers that they are sectional. (
? Macey old master designs harmonize with any furniture you
now have, and are made in such variety of popular prices, sizes,
woods and finishes, that they fit any requirement of space orpurse.
I Macey Sectional Book Cabinets are built under the direction
of Mr. O. H. I.. Wernickc, the father of sectional bookcases and
President of 1 lie Macey Company. Mr. Wernicke's name is
still used in the corporate title of a competing firm, with which
be has long since had no connection.
f If you wish to give your home and your children the most in
spiring influence you ever gave them, you will go to a furniture
store and see these new Macey Book Cabinets before you forget it.
