EVUIIYTHINQ Boomn to point to a prof
itable market for the farmers' crops this
year. What with the failure of the
wheat crop in Kuropo , the dependence
of that country upon the United States
for a cereal substitute , and the great
damage to wheat In this country render
ing probable a largo similar local de
mand , there will In all likelihood bo a
valuable market for corn , Ana now
word comes that the drouth and heat
have spoiled the sugar boot crop in Ku
ropo. The consumption of boot root sugar
in European countries is oomuthing
enormous and hence the likelihood of
an increased domtuul for the product
from this country. The farmers of No-
" '
b'raska are planting a largo aorcago of
corn and the outlook for u good crop is
now esteemed excellent. Considerable
.attention la also bolng paid to the sugar
Uc-ot Holds , and a larger acreage than

When the nttorttnya for the Impanelled
Htata ofllolnls mndo ft bargain with
A roh I toe I Bolmlorft to orgivnlr.o and
drill A block of live exports , who would
npprnlno the cell house high enough to
vindicate Hill Dorgan's Integrity they
evidently did not inland that the figures
of the appraisers should dUcloso the
fact that this expert testimony was
gottun up and agreed on for the occu ;
slon. Mr. BolndorlT spent ten days at
Lincoln in measuring and figuring.
Ho hold close conference with the
men ho had c ngaged for- the defendants
and crammed thorn with the figures seas
as to make the totals tally as near as
possible with the amount which Durgan
claims to have paid out for the cell
house. The only thing In the way of the
obliging city hall architect was his in
ability to fet the fifth export who would
chime in with his extraordinary compu
tation.
So the combine of four hired experts
managed to comu within $1)00 ) of each
other in appraising the house that
Dorcan built. In fact , two of the four wore
within $77 of each other , which shows
that they are extraordinary calculators.
It is pertinent at this stage , although
outside of the regular court proceedings ,
to make a few inquiries Why did Mr.
BoindorIT put In ton days at Lincoln
when at the very utmost lie could have
Inspected , measured and figured the two
and two thirds of thy cell house walls
with all the incidentals in le.ss than ton
hours ? How much of a retainer did
Mr. Heimlorff got for his extraordinary
services as contractor for expert testi
mony in defense of boodlors ? How
much of a retainer did each of the other
expert architects got besides tholr wit
ness fees to join him In this extravagant
appraisement ?
As a mutter of fact , ono of these experts -
ports declared to the editor of THE
Bun on ono day that ho wanted to testify
for the state , and the day following ho
f > ent word to the managers of impeaoh-
mnnt that ho did not want to be sub-
pujiiaed by the state because ho had been
engaged by the other side. What infer
ence could bo drawn from this fact ex
cepting that a very big retainer was
paid to those expert witnesses in order
to impose on the court by misleading
and extravagant estimates ?
"While the court can take no notice of
anything that the press may say , it is
only right and proper that this kind of
jugglery and imposture shall bo exposed
and rebuked.
I'OHTiC.lL AWAItlS AUHOAD.
THE SUNDAY BEE'S European dis
patches were peculiarly interesting for
their clear presentation of the political
situation in the leading countries of
Europe , with the conclusions of corre
spondents whoso judgment is based upon
the best sources of information. It is
plain that political affairs 'abroad are
again assuming a very serious aspect
and that the possibility of important
changes in the near future is greater
than at any other time lor several years.
Germany is the centre of attention and
the campaign in that country for the
election ot a new Reichstag is being
watched with profound interest. As it
progresses the indications increase that
thd government will sulTer defeat , and
this would seem to ba apprehended by
the emperor. There is consequently
danger that ho may lose his temper and
discretion and thereby still further in
jure his cause. His utterances since the
defeat of the army bill have not gen
erally been regarded as judicious , and
the reports regarding the course of the
campaign indicate that they are resented
by the people. The impression that in
the event of the new Roiehstag being
against him the emperor will again dis
solve that body and assert his im
perial right to declare the army bill
a law , finds warrant in the character of
the emperor , with whom it goes hard to
submit to legislative restraints. Most
earnestly believing that the security of
the empire and the assurance of conti
nental peace depend upon the additional
support for the military establishment
which ho asks , the kaiser would prob
ably find it impossible to rcalst the im
pulse to override the popular will in
case ho should bo again denied his de
mand by the representatives of the pee
ple. What the political consequences of
such a course might bo is problem
atical , but It is quito conceiva
ble that the emperor might find
it necessary to appeal to the army ,
which is intensely loyal , to sustain him.
Out of such a condition of atTulrs It is
impossible to see what might ultimately
result. It would bo a desperate exped
ient and therefore necessarily fraught
with danger.
So far as Franco is concerned there
does not appear to bo any very sound
reasons for apprehending that the September -
tombor elections will roault in any im
portant change In political conditions.
The French people have within the past
two years had their republican
ism ana their patriotism put tea
a very Bovoro strain and they have
demonstrated that they are well satis-
fled with this form of government. As
to the political disturbances in the
other countries , their Importance is dif
ficult to estimate. It Is a striking fact ,
worthy of the careful attention of the
political student , that only in Russia
and Switzerland , representing the ex
tremes of government , are the condi
tions normal.
TUB ANTl'TltUsiT
It IB to ho hoped that every btato
which has boon luvltod to participate In
the anti-trust ooavcntlon ta ha hold in
Chicago Juno 5 and 0 will ho well repre
sented hy men who are heartily in sym
pathy with the object of the convention.
The call for this osnferonco of autl-
monopollsta was made by tha governor
of Minnesota in auoordanco with a reso
lution of the legislature of that state /or
the specific purpose of discussing the
great uoal combination which has for
years boon plundering the people , hut it
is now proposed that the convention
shall take a broader BCOJIO and consider
the monopolies generally , with a view to
suggesting national ami state legisla
tion for the suppression of the trusts nnd
arousing a public sentiment that will
muko Itself felt upon congroas nnd btato
legislatures.
As this will ha the first conference of
the kind ever held , and as the subject
to bo considered Is of the very Rrcntcit
Importance to the IntcrosU ntul welfare
of the people , It In manifestly mcwt do *
Blrablo that It shall bo so strong In num
bers nnd character ai to carry
a weight and inllucnco , which the
legislative representatives of the people
plo nnd tholr servants In ex
ecutive positions will not dare to dis
regard. There is urgent need of a con
certed nnd vigorous popular movement ,
wholly outside of politics , for the over
throw ot the conspiracies against trndo
whoso combined power now represents
hundreds of millions of dollars and
which are steadily Increasing. Such a
movement scorns absolutely necessary to
stir up those who make laws nnd those
who are charged with tholr execution
to an adequate sense of tholr duty. The
people nro periodically reassured
by promises that something is
to bo done to relieve them from
the exactions of monopolies , but
an experience of this sort for throe
years has Impaired confidence In those
whose duty it-is to glvo them relief nnd
ought to have convincud thorn that
there is little to be hoped for so lomj as
the people miiko no earnest and deter
mined effort to have their wishes and
demands complied with. For three
yoara wo have had a general law which
was carefully framed and deliberately
enacted prohibiting trusts , combinations
, nd agreements in restraint of trade and
eclaring them unlawful. A federal
ourt has affirmed the constitutionality
f this act' and the highest legal
, bility in the country has do-
larod that it is sufficient to
rush out every form of monopoly to
vhich it applies , such as the coal com-
million , the sugar trust and all of the
: nero than ono hundred kindred con-
ipiracies against trade. Yet this law is
pt-actically a dead letter and the people
lave no satisfactory assurance that it is
not to bo allowed to remain so. There
ire rumored intentions of nn effort to
nforco it , but how much credence they
are entitled to the public does not know.
It has been well suggested that the
: mti-trust convention , in order to have
ho influence and usefulness it should
iiave , must bo essentially a busi
ness body , taking some practical action
'ather ' than wasting time in denuncia
tion and vain theorizing. Its object will
be defeated if those who attend attempt
, o convert It to the purpose of making
political capital. It is intended to voice
the popular demand for relief from the
exactions of monopoly and it will fail to
accomplish what is hoped for from it if
the convention is allowed to drift away
from its clearly-defined object.
TUB EASTERN VIBll OP IT.
It was noted a few days ago that there
s a strong public sentiment in the
southwest and in this section , which is
ikoly to grow , against the high rail
road rates to the World's fair. It was
remarked at that time that the demand
for reduced rates came from all quarters
and that there seemed to bo a sort of
tacit agreement among the people of all
sections of the country not to go to the
fair unless transportation charges are
reduced. Jt is undoubtedly a fact that
western road ? are not carrying so many
people to Chicago as they expected teat
at this time , and It appears . that the
same is true of the eastern roads. The
Boston Advertiser 'observes ' that it is becoming -
coming apparent that the people are
not flocking to Chicago in the way that
the American roads expected , and the
prospect that rates will bo demoralized
in conscquonco is by no means an un
likely ono. It says "thoro is absolutely
no doubt that there are very many people
ple in the east who had intended visit
ing the fair , but who have boon de
terred by the action of the traflic asso
ciation , " which was based on
the impression that the eagerness
of the public to attend the fair
would lead it to accept whatever
rates were offered. "Tho experiment has
been tried for some time , " remarks the
Advertiser , "and it is an open secret that
it has not resulted well for many linos.
The people will not go in great crowds
under the existing rates , and the smaller
lines must either secure a reduction o
rates or go without the business they
had expected. "
Our Boston contemporary regards
demoralizing rate war , repeating the
experience during the centennial exposition
position of 1870 , as inevitable if the
stronger lines insist on maintaining
present rates , and suggests tlia
the only question for railroad
men to dcoido is , shall the rates bo re
duced in a legitimate way or by a dam
aging and unnecessary rate war ? There
was much bettor reason for establishing
high rates by the eastern roads than by
the western , since there is a greater
proportion of the people of the east thai :
of the west who have the moans and
time to attend the fair , yet public com
plaint seems to be quito as general in
the former as in the latter section. The
fact is that it is not altogether a qu
lion of bolng able to atlord the oxpondl
turo which inspires popular pro
test. The fooling that the rail
roads are taking an undue advan
tage of their opportunity has a grea
deal to do with the popular opposition
to the high rates , which is by no moans
confined to people of small moans. An
illustration of this was furnished by the
local stock commission firm whoso com
munication to THE BEE on this subject
was referred to a few days ago , They
can afford to pay the rate , but they de
cline to do so because they believe it to
"bo , under the circumstances , unfair and
unreasonable , and as a matter of prin
ciple they prefer to remain away from
the fair rather than countenance
such a policy on the part of the
'railroads. That there are thousands
of others throughout this section , and
indeed in every section of the country ,
who fool this way is not to bo doubted ,
and while It Is not probable that all of
thorn will stay away from the fair unless
railroad rates are reduced many will
undoubtedly do so.
The issue that has thus boon made be
tween the public and the railroads will
eventually bo bottled , there is small
reason to doubt , in favor of the public.
Popular protest against extortion in
Chicago has had a wholesome effect and
the cost of living In that city Is bolng
brought to a reasonable basis. Rapacity
haa received a check and it will not
ngnln bo generally prnntlcodi It In in
the power of the pllbllb to compel the
railroads to bo falr d'roasoimblo and
U Is highly probabhvthnt It will event-
ii ally do so. " "
NOT much has boon cnld about the tin
Industry since the presidential campaign ,
but if the result of tiio \ \ election last

facture tin plato 'iw recently Incor
porated at Niles , O. , nnd several other
projects In this branch of in
dustry are reported. The facts re
garding production by established
plants are also encouraging , so that it is
evident that "this Industry did not ro-
colvo so great a shook from the result
of the last i national campaign as was
apprehended. Arrangements have been
completed for an exhibit of American
tin plato at the World's ' fair , and as this
will represent business and not politics

Chicago Herald : The Insolence and sav
agery of religious fanatics have made more
converts to infidelity than have nil the
toachers-of Infidelity. They have turned the
gospel of peace into u message of war. In
denouncing the best , the purest , and most
humane people of this ago for falling to ac
cept the specialties of their creeds and to
halt as the best light the gloom of their fast
days , they have done more than all the atlio-
"stiu teachers from Voltaire to Ingersoll have
lone to promote thu cause of atheism. It Is
lima that they should call a halt. They
should reverse their methods. They should
try a now departure and endeavor to pro
mote the object of the gospel by gospel touch-
'ngs and by gospel plans of action.
Indianapolis Journal : The Hartford Con-
rant takes the New York Sun to task for
asserting that "tho Westminster confession
Is accepted by the great majority of Protest
ants , " and for styling the coming general
assembly of the Northern Presbyterians at
Washington the "great council ot Protest
antism. " The Lutherans , the Episcopalians ,
the Methodists and the Congrcgatiomilists
do not accept the confession. The Baptists ,
while largely Culvlnlsts , do not take their
creed from the Westminster confession.
The Methodists numbered 4,533,662 bv the
last census and the Baptists y.VJ4,0'.it : , while
the Presbyterians were l,2T8hS3 ; , all told , so
that in no sense can the boJy which will
consider the Briggs case or the questions

That every successful , meritor

This is a grave injustice , for
the genuine pure article will
often be judged by the imita-
tion. No preparations require
for their manufacture more
care and skill , more costly
and purer materials , than
Flavoring Extracts.
. In this instance cheap mater *
ials mean inferior flavors.
Dr. Price's Delicious Flavor

way to public confidence by
the pure and costly materials
