, . i ' .-f i The Commoner. 3 Vol. a, No. 5o. It is better and easier to stop -the trust when it attempts to leave the state of its origin than after it has been strengthened by widespread depreda tions. Under the power to regulate interstate commerce congress has authority to enact all leg islation necessary for the protection of indepen dent industries. The private monopoly has always been an outlaw and the supreme court is not like ly to interfere in behalf of a greedy corporation which is endeavoring to destroy competition and victimize the public. The license or permit system is more effective ,.- than a system which requires the hunting up and punishing of corporations which violate a general law. Just as it is easier to require a liquor dealer to take out a license in advance than it would be to collect a tax from him at the end of the year, so it is easier to compel a corporation to show in advance that there is no water in its stock and that it is not trying to monopolize a...

This writer says that when Mr. Beards-, ley took office, in 1828, there were about 6,700 postoillces in the country. Now there are 76,594. The postal department expenditures in 1830 were $1,932,708. In 1901 they were $115,039,607. Mr. Beardsloy's share of the growth in the servico lay in a gradual increase of salary from $19.53, his first year's pay, up to almost $200, his last year's due.

King James, who was then on the throne, heard of the affair and par doned the man, whereupon Sully protested against this act of clemency, declaring that as the French man having been convicted and sentenced to death by a tribunal of his own countrymen the English Uing had no right or competence to inter fere in the matter.

A multitude of cares encompassed me, Stood at my elbow, hung about my knee; Hedged me away from all the world outside, Thronged In my path, if to escape I tried. And thus, from mingling with my hind debarred, Often I mourned and felt my lot was hard; Slipped from the clinging" fingers, sighed for rest, , Hushed the shrill tongues and deemed the silence best. One day God took my cares unto him self; I need no longer toil, for love or pelf. Free am I now, to roam to far-off lands, Or sit in silence, with my empty hands. Alone I go; as lonely I return; And none remains to feel for me con cern. No noisy shouts, no clamorous tongues in glee To break the silence all is hushed to me. No clinging fingers clutching at my dress; No tumbled curls upon my bosom press. But now dear Lord! if I could ope the door And know my cares would meet me as of yore, I'd give ah, with what gladness, I would give A...
