'SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XI. NO. 51 Uncle Sam's Business Oligarchy Ninety-two principal banking- houses, banks, life insurance companies, trust com panies, railroad and industrial, and miscel- laneous corporations in the United States, representing by their capitalization more than one-fifth of the total wealth of the coun try, are managed by 1,469 directors and part ners. There are so many directors in one company who are also directors in other com panies that as a matter of fact these ninety two corporations and firms are controlled by about 1,000 men. More than a quarter of the directorships of these ninety-two corporations—or, to be more definite, 410 directorships—are held by 72 men. None of them is a director in less than two of the companies; some of them are directors in ten or fifteen. These remarkable facts go to show the ex tent to which concentration of financial pow er has been brought about through the sim ple method of exchange of directorships. Of the 1,000 men cont...

In section 13, article 12, of the State Con stitution, it is provided thus: "All rail road, canal and other transportation com panies are declared to be common carriers and subject to legislative control." In section 18, same article, it is provided thus: "The legislature shall pass laws es tablishing reasonable maximum rates of charges for the transportation of passengers and freight." It will be seen by an examination of the constitution mentioned, that the legislature has absolute control and the right to regu late the charges for the transportation of passengers and freight; that the next legis lature of this state can enact laws fixing the rate of transportation upon street car lines within cities of the first class, or upon street...

Plans are being matured by the owners of the Syracuse Smelting Company to install improvements and additional machinery to cost $20,000 principally to utilize scrap tin. The management states that enough scrap tin can be secured from the canneries and tin factories to keep the plant busy. When completed the factory will employ between seventy-five and a hundred men, which will materially strengthen Seattle's bucket brigade. The leading materials to be made include lead and tin pipe, shot, traps and sinker phosphor tin, wire and triangle solder, sash weights, etc. The sash weights can be made with the sediments left after the scrap tin is used up. There is said to be a demand for the above named articles in this city. ITEMS OF INTEREST. A French artist has just completed the larg...

The national government of ficials have refused to enter the Yakima valley to reclaim arid lands unless the state with its pri vate concerns withdraws complete ly from the field, which the state refused to do. At Pekin, Illinois, true bills of indictment have been returned against two of the high officials of the Standard Oil Co., and the gov ernor has issued requisition pa pers for the accused.

SEATTLE REPUBLICAN VOL. XI. NO. 52 POLITICAL POT=PIE W. H. Clark has been turned down good and hard for the deputy internal revenue collectorship at this place and Thomas Payne is to remain in the position indefi- nitely. "Clarky" was turned down despite the fact that he had the promise from Sen ator Piles himself, so goes the story, that another job would be found for Payne and he, Clark, would be given the job the Ist day of May. The above promise, Clarky declares, was made to him in the presence of all of the war horses of the "South district" and in the presence of D. B. Crocker, internal reve nue collector of this district, who assented to the change. The first of May has come and gone and still Clarky is doing chores on his farm over on Vashon island, and when seen one day this week in consultation with the "big four" from the south end he was in no mood to discuss the situation, but hur riedly remarked: "There would come a reckoning of affairs some sweet day, by and by." # * ...

m "W* *ai WW mW* *Ww B\ /■ 1 1\ SENATOR RUSSELL Politicians all over the state sorely re gretted the unexpected death of State Sena tor Samuel Scott Russell at his home last Friday night. Few men won public favor as rapidly as did he when once he got in the arena. The senator's illness was brief, hence the great shock to the entire state. His remains were laid to rest in Seattle last Thursday, which were followed to their last resting place by many secret societies, of which he was a member, as well as by sena tors and representatives, who served in the late legislature with him. EDITORIAL THOUGHTS. The Seattle Republican last week made the suggestion that ex-Governor John 11. MoGraw of Seattle, and Hon. Samuel Cos grove of Pomeroy would be an excellent choice for the governor to make for railroad commissioners. While the governor has not intimated whom he will appoint on this com-^ mission except Mr. Fairchild, we believe the suggestion of The Republican is a good one. —Big Bend Em...

RACE-CHURCH PROPOSED. Consolidation of Various Sects Would Make for Race-Unity. To the Editor of the New York Age: The Age's reproduction of the Rich mond Planet's" comment upon ttiff prejudice of the white Northern Pres byterian Church, and the Planet's- sug-' gestion of the' probable organization of an independent Afro-American Pres byterian Church, echoes a. sentiment not alien to some Negro Presbyters. But it would be very unwise to or ganize a separate colored Presbyter ian church, because the colored man's dogged belief in religion on one hand and the white man's prejudice to him on the other are to him an upper and nether mill-stone. If the. Negro race, like the Jews, Mohammedans or Shin toists, had a religion that would" unify the race sentiment, that would create and keep alive a race'consciousness; and that would be of some service in helping to organize the race into one ; grand phalanx, then of such would j)e the Negro's Kingdom of God.
