The republican papers are making much of the speech recently delivered by Senator Mc Laurin, of South Carolina, at Charlotte in that state. And well they may, for it marks the begin ning of a movement in the south which will have an influence upon the politics of the nation. It is not likely that Mr. McLaurin will be the leader of the movement because he is handicapped by the fact that lie is using his official position to misrepresent the views and interests of his constituents, bub some leader will arise to give direction and force to the aristocratic and plutocratic element for whioh Mr. McLaurin speaks. There is such an ele ment in every community and now that the race question no longer unifies the white people pf the southern states, it will do ubtless mani fest itself. Then, too, the corporations are in creasing in nuniber and magnitude...

The total amount of money lost at the card table, the wheel of fortune and other games which are declared to be illegal is insignificant in comparison with the amount lost in specula tion on the boards of trade and stock exchanges. Then, too, in small gambling the parties to the games and their immediate families are usually the only ones pecuniarily affected, while specu lation upon the market injures the producers, consume...

Its theory is that the savage instincts of the young are excited by the uso of such toys. The boy who sets up a gaily painted soldier and then bowls him over with a marble is thereby training himself some day to march away to the sound of fife and drum. Ho may even be awakening those gory instincts which will make of him a Hannibal or a Napoleon to drench whole continents in blood. The paper doll is harmless, tho toy fire engine only a nuisance, but death and destruction lurk in the tin soldier. It must be abolished. This is, on its face, a momentous and at the same time a practical re- form. It betokens Gallic finesse. The Czar attempted to eradicate war by calling a Peace Congress at The Hague.

Enough of the opinion is given to show the facts as they were brought out at the trial, the conduct of respondents and the reasoning upon which the decision was based. It was fortunate for the tax-payers of Chi cago that the case was tried before a brave and honest judge, one who could not be awed or in fluenced by the great corporations which were shirking their duty, and throwing upon others the burdens which they themselves ought to . .bear.
