THE BELDING BANNER
HV C'OWIUN Jt LATHAM. THURSDAY, SEPT. 21, 1899. Tbo question of the hour Is, how to restrain or limit tno operations of the so-called trusts without blocking the wheels of progress, destroying the in dustries of the country, checking or fatally Injuring the visible prosperity on every hand, reducing the customs receipts, driving capital from invest ment to inactivity and paralyzing trade nnd commerce. Better the trusts as they are than to take such drastic measures as would plunge the country again into the stagnation that prevail ed a few years ago and from which wo are now emerging. The? widest states manship is required to adjust trade re lations, and the subject should be he- vond and higher than the reach of partizanship or the grasp of the dema gogue. A notable meeting is now being held in Chicago to consider the mo mentous nuestlou f trusts, and it is honed some method will be evolved that may lead to a peaceable- scttlt merit of the subject and not convulse the country by plunging It into the throes of an industrial revolution. Moderation and toleration is better than arbitrary methods. Coldwater Courier and Republican. Senator Carter says the future of the Philippines will be determined by the common sense for which Americans nre famous. To put the matter in his own words: "This is a practical age. We are going to deal with this ques tion on the basis of dollar s and cents. If the American people believe that lie- Philippines are going to help us, II. .-y U1 never let. the Inlands go. If, on ot her hand, they lind that the Puilippincs mean a constant drain and small rHiirn, you will lind the verdiel of the people to be against permanent retention. I believe that the posses sion of toe, islands moans a great slim ulus to trade, especially for the Pa cific eoMnt. Half the population of the glohe lives in tno circle of two thous and 11. iii s iiio'.td Luzon. I believe that te itie yoing to develop this great field uuder exceptional advant ages. Neither religion nor sentiment will have much Influence In determin ing the verdict. The great question will be, will it pay ? If we can show the country that it will, as I think we can, the American Hag will never come down in the Philippines. Speaking of the coming campaign, Senator Hanna said: ''I think the in dustrial conditions and the Philippine war will prove factors in the coming campaign. The Philippine war will bo made an issue by the Democratic party, but we have nothinir to fear. 1 would as soon have so called anti-expansion made an issue as to have tin silver question, for all that silver is an old man of the sea. 1 am not afraid of the outcome. I have reasoned out that the sound judgment of the people is that they don't want a change. They will not, I believe by their own act change the conditions of the country. The United States has entered on an era of prosperity. The promises of tlx Republican party have been kept. Commercial conditions are sound and this prosperity is based on confidence. I am confident of a Republican victory. I am of the belief that there will be wome difticulty in making trusts a po litical issue. The Republican party 1-j just-as much opposed to amassing wealth in a manner to injure the pub lie as is the Democratic par ty." Senator Burrows, speaking of (Jen. Alger's withdrawal from the senator ial race, said: "The declination of (Jen. Alger to enter into an active campaign for the senatorship will leave a clean field for Senator McMillan and assures his re-elect. on without opposi tion. It will also harmonize and sol id i fy the republican party in Michigan and Insure majorities next year for the state and national ticket. General Alger retires to private life full of hon ors and with the respect and confidence of his fellow citizens. It is absurd to think of Gov. Pingrec being a candi date for senator against McMillan." The Republican sentiment in this state, as manifested in various ways, has been so pronounced in favor of Mr. McMillan's retention of his seat that at present there seems no possibility of any man defeating him before the next legislature. So much of a conclusion is Mr. McMillan's election that a con siderable portion of the Pingrec "push" are seeking to enroll- themselves among his friends. Allegan (Jazette.
