The watering of stock is not only indefensible, but it -contradicts the arguments made by inter ested parties in defence of trusts. The favorite contention of promoters is that consolidation makes production more economical, and, therefore, tends to lower prices. But nearly every corporation tbat attempts a monopoly proceeds to capitalize tho expected savings, thus giving to the stock holders the advantage promised to the consumers. If a corporation plans to control any product, and estimates a saving of one million by the dis charge of travelling salesmen, it figures that that amount will pay fivo per cent interest on twenty million dollars, and it immediately increases the stock to that extent. A prospectus issued by the International Steam Pump company shows that the properties bought were estimated at less than twelve million ...

Swfja n"PHjWW''WW ine " . Commoner, Coal Produc- An interesting showing con tioii of the corning our coal production is United States. made ' by the New York World. In 1899, the United States -wrested from Great Britain the lead in the coal production of the world. In 1900, this country more than doubled its lead in this production. Pennsylvania furnishes a large proportion of the coal, but it dctes not, how ever, liave a monopoly on the coal mining in dustry. The World says: . 'The new returns from Washington show that twenty-six states and two territories contribute to the coal output of the country. Of the 267,542, 444 tons mined in 1900 Pennsylvania contributed 136,724,006, of which 67,107,660 tons were anthra cite. The state's net gain of 2,150,000 tons was due entirely to an increase in the yield of soft coal, the coal trust having effected a decrease in the other kind. Next in line is Illinois, with an output of 25, 153,929 tons. Then come West Virgmia, with 21, 980,430 tons,...

The Commoner. Vol. i. Nol 25. Lincoln, Nebraska, July 12, 1901. $1.00 a Year 1 - Unsafe Banking The failure of the 7 th National Bank of New York city calls attention to the fact that many banks are doing business upon an unsafe basis. ' This particular bank made a report to the clearing house on June 21st showing that . its capital was only $376,340 while its deposits were over $5,700,000; its loans over $4,400,000. A shrinkage of ten per cent in the value of its . loans would have more than wiped out its cap- . ital. According to the report referred to the net profits were $234,000 but even this sura , added to tho capital would not give a sufficient margin to make the business safe. Some ratio should be fixed between the bank's capital and its deposits for while it may be very profitable to divide among a few stock- . holders the profits secured upon large deposits it invites collapse. A banker would not loan to a merchant whose liabilities equalled 90 percent ot his assets. Why ...

Terr I? Eternal Vigilance. There are some people who appear iudif fcrent to the encroachments upon liberty, if the encroachments appear at tho time to ho small. There are some who fail to see in the Porto Bican tariff duty, in the government of Porto Rico by executive power, and in the de nial to the Filipinos of the right of self-government, any evil serious enough to warrant consideration. Daniel "Webster, in a speech delivered in the senate May 7, 1884, had something to say on this subject. This is what Webster said: "Every encroachment, great or small, is im portant enough to awaken the. attention of those who are entrusted with the preservation of a constitutional government. We are not to wait till great public mischiefs come, till the government is overthrown, or liberty itself put into extreme jeopardy. We should not be worthy sons of our fathers were we so to re gard great questions affecting the general free dom. Those fathers accomplished the revo lution on a strict quest...

The Commoner. I I :; Municipal Ownership. Municipal ownership sentiment is making, headway. As a stepping stone to the single tax system it' nay ho one of the most potent factors in our national development, and it becomes of greateT importance as the population of the coun try gathers in jan increasing proportion in cities an -I towns. Three-cent fares may ho a step to municipal ownership, and municipal ownership, by putting an end to municipal monopolies, will bring nearer the era of the single tax system, with its remedy for all the evils of monopolies and special priv ileges. , Municipal monopolies consist of rights and special privileges in the public' streets and high ways which, in the nature of the case, cannot bo possessed by all the people and can only be en joyed by a few. A constant struggle goes on to ob tain such privileges, with the result of checking and retarding for a long time necessary public im provements.
