(" The Commoner. WILLIAil J. BRYAN, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. 1 N & IW Wiuwp "W vm0tmiumvi rr suwii i Vol. 3. No. ii. Lincoln, Nebraska, April 3, 1903. Whole No. 115. Missouri Bits the Trusts. The Missouri supreme courf has found five great beef packing companies Luiity of maintain ing an unlawful combination to control the price of beef in that state, and has levied a fine of five thousand dollars on each. of the companies. The 'opinion of the court was unanimous, and the companies affected are the Armour, Cudahy, Ham mond, Swift, and Schwarzchild and Sulzburger companies. . A fine of five thousand dollars in such a case is, of course, insignificant when compared with .the profits made by the companies, and this calls attention to the fact that in large violations of the law the punishments are not in proportion to the magnitude of the offence. It may be said that from a moral standpoint the crime is as great when one steals a small amount as when he steals a large amount, and yet...

He pointed out that it was to the interest of the people to have the govern ment indebtedness paid off rather than the money loaned to the banks at a low rate of interest, while the government itself was paying a higher rate of interest Instead of allowing republicans to collect large sums and then insist upon loaning the money out to get it back into circulation, he demanded that they either reduce the taxes and leave the money in the pockets of the people, or if they collected too much, apply the surplus on the reduction of the public debt. He very forcibly pointed out the interest the national banks have in preventing the reduction of the debt, because the bonds are the basis of the bank-note issue. The second objection to the Aldrich bill is that the loaning of the. money gives to the bank e...

Although this action on the part of President Castro was not en tirely unexpected in some quarters, much comment was caused in ofllclal circles by his resignation. It was later reported, however, that by a unani mous vote the congress had asked Castro to reconsider his resignation and remain in the presidency, although the revolutionists in Venezuela de clare that they will cease operations against the government if Castro stays out of office. The coal strike commission rendered its decision in the case on March 21. In brief, this decision contains the declaration that the miners should have an increase of wages of 10 per cent; the work day for some classes of miners is shortened; wages shall be paid by a sliding scale; a stricter enforcement of tho child labor law is advised; the settleme...

The Commoner does not indorse any one Kansas City platform democrat as against any other, but presents the claims of each as those claims are made by friends. This much is said so that no importance may be attadhed to the order in which the names are' suggested. A political admirer of William J.
