The billion dollar steel trust will serve a use ful purpose if it awakens the- people to a realiza tion to the menace of private monopoly. The existence of such a combination of capital, abso lutely controlling several lines of business, doling out daily bread to tens of thousands of working men and dominating a large part of the business world, is in itself indefensible and insufferable. The Kansas City platform points out a remedy ' the only effective remedy proposed. Congress has power to rrulate interstate commerce; it has power to prescribe the terms upon which a corpo ration organized in any state can do business outside of the state. Let Congress oompel all corporations to take out a federal license before engaging in interstate commerce or, if that is too harsh, let it require that...

In explaining his vote for the army bill, Con gressman Clayton, of New York, (it is necessary to give his state as there is a Congressman Clayton of Alabama, who is a very different kind of a democrat) said, "I voted on the army bill, on the currency question and a number of other questions with the party in power; I 'have done so because of ray convictions that by so doing the best inter ests of my constituents and of the country would be served." This is the defense that any republican might make and it raises the question, why does he call himself a democrat if he agrees with the republi cans in convictions? In regard to the appointment he said: "I had not made, up my mind to ask for...

As a matter of fact, nearly every southern democrat in both House and Senate voted for free and unlimited coinage from 1870 to 1893 not only voted for free and unlimited coinage but voted for the ratio of sixteen to one, without waiting for the aid or consent of any other nation. A few of the southern democrats were won over by Mr. Cleveland botween 1893 and 1890, but nearly all of these were immediately retired to private life. Both Good. A New Definition. Some of our contemporaries are discussing the relative merits of an inheritance tax and a tax on franchises. Why not have both? One does not interfere with the other and both are meritorious.

if f-ipMWJCTJW','5 Wool Growers Complaining:. It is a painful surprise to learn that tho wool growers aro complaining. Thoy have supported tho ropublican party with so much enthusiasm, and have been cared for so tenderly that tho news of thoir dissatisfaction is in the nature of a shock. Tho Drover' s Journal says: Tho Wool situation is by no moans satisfactory to tho Shcopnen of tho West. Much of last year's clip is still stored in tho warehouses, and there is little prospect of selling1 it at tho prices which obtained early last year. Manufacturers aro going into the shoddy business because thoy say that tho demand from tho laboring classes is for something cheap, and they cannot afford to pay tho present market price of wool and sell the cloth cheap enough to make a gar ment that would como within tho reach of tho ordi nary workman, Tho advance in tho prico of woolen goods has shut off much of this demand, and tailors arp iinding their business shrinking perceptibly.

In view of the recent discovories in that state, an extract iay bo instructive: So much liafa been printed of late years about fcrtesian water and its manner of occurrence that I suppose ovory one understands that it does not exist in underground rivers and lakes as wo find it on the urfaco, but in bods of sand occupying the minute paces between the sand grains.

It i earnestly to be hoped, however, that the secretary of the navy will not find it necessary to take advantage of the authority which I understand is to he granted him to appoint a certain number of warrant ofllcers to the grade of ensigns. While it is true that these men are selected from a large class of men of very unusual ability, which distinguishes them as perhaps the professional equals of their oHlcors as far as their technical education stands, it is also true that they are recruited from a class of men who have not had the social advantages which are requisite for a commissioned ofllcer.

f HVw(i'rwr'-F T'T-rn ?nT7 5r?T5?rE! 4 is not only an American principle; it is world wide, and the legality of a revolution depends upon its success. Prior to the Spanish-American war, the people of Cuba and the people of the Philippines had taken up arms in defense of their liberty. Had our war with Great Britain been a failure, our own declaration of independence would have had no legal standing. But our rebellion against King George became a "revolution" because we wore successful; and it is generally agreed that our national era dates from our decla ration of independence and not from the treaty which Great Britain made with us in declaring peace, and in conveying to our forefathers the territory for which they had fought. So, long before the beginning of the Spanish American war, the people of the Philippines and the people of Cuba had, by their own acts, laid the ground work for the record title to their native land. All that was necessary to make their declarations of indepe...

In that lcttor Sonor Lopez says: Wc plead for peace, but tho pica is in the interests of thoso who suffer and die hy sword and starvation; not because of fear. We can fight long, even if we have to suffer much, for wc are fighting for hearth and home, and in a righteous cause. We are ready for peace; we hold out the olive branch. But on that branch is written, with the blood of brave men, the word "liberty." For that we are willing to suffer; for that wo arc prepared to die.

bV & Free Speech in Universities. The report made by the educators who inves tigated the action of Mrs. Stanford in demand ing the resignation of Prof. Ross fully sustains the criticism which hap been directed against her and the university authorities. After reading the verdict of theso distinguished and disinterested in structors, no one will doubt that the views enter tained by Prof. Hobs on tho silver question, Chi nese immigration and municipal ownership led to his dismissal. . It was a plain and unvarnished at tempt to deny free speech to an able, honest and courageous teacher, and it will require many jears to remove tho stain from Stanford University. This incident, together with similar incidents in recont years, will tend to lesson tho influence of those private institutions of learning which are being supported by largo individual donations unless such institutions are left" entirely free to teach economic truths.

The record of the Fifty-sixth congress is com pleted, and it is not an enviable one. For ex travagance it has never been equaled, and no pre vious congress has ever shown anything like the contempt for American principles and traditions. . The republican party in 1896 promised interna tional bimetalism and this Congress redeemed the promise by retiring the greenbacks and giving the country as large a dose of the gold standard as it thought the patient was able to bear. It has fastened a large army upon the, United States an army larger than the President would have been willing to defend during the late cam paign. It has violated the solemn promise made to Cuba and demanded a supervision of Cuban affairs which amount to a denial of independence.
