The remainder of his unexpected leg acy went to refurnish the place in elaborate style. Ho was proud of the mirrors which were fastened to the walls, of the heavy oaken chairs and tables, but, proudest of all, of the new floor of polished hardwood. Two old Germans, who had been regular customers of the place for years, continued their visits when the furnishing was completed. They in sisted on expectorating on the now floor, ignoring the cuspidors. Hans went to them and expostu lated: "Mine frolnd, vill you please spit in der coospidor, not on der floor?"

(President Roosevelt flust Act The president -was fully justified in calling a conference of the mine owners and strikers at the White house. The situation was serious and the executive well and forcibly presented the people's side in his statement, which was as follows: "I wish to call your attention to the fact that there are three parties affected by the situation in the anthracite trade the opera tors, the miners and the general public I speak, for neitner the operators nor the min ers, but for the general public. The questions at issue which led to the situation affect im mediately the parties concerned the operators and the miners but the situation itself "vital ly affects the public.

The Commoner. Oct. 10, ioa 3 THE GOOD TRUSTS AND THE BAD TRUSTS tor- Mr. Roosevelt and other republican leaders have repeatedly said that thoro are good trusts and bad trusts, but none of them have over undertaken to point out the "good trusts." The Minneapolis Journal, a republican paper, in an editorial printed in its issue of September 29, had something to say on the "good and bad trusts" subject and explained, "Little corporations aro good and bad, and so are big ones." After reading this editorial, John Dunham wrote to the Journal, asking: "Will you kindly give me the names o half- a dozen good trusts and half a dozen bad ones through the columns of your paper?" This question has been submitted to many re publican newspapers throughout the country," but they have invariably dodged it The Minneapolis Journal, however, met the question in a straight forward way. It reproduced Mr. Dunham's letter and referred to him as being "evidently a gentle man who prefers concrete instances t...

Perhaps the most interesting report of this conference was made by Walter Wellman, corre spondent for the Chicago Record-Herald. Mr. Wellman says that Governor Cummins "faced the seven or eight congressmen and threw his remarks straight at them." The governor said: . .
