Some time , ago when all the great
dailies were announcing the formation
of a meat trust after the most ap
rroved modern fashion. The Indenen
dent told Its readers that there would
be no meat trust organized until af
ter the election. If the republicans
succeed, one will, be organized, but if
there is a general tendency to revolt
at trust extortions shown by the vote,
the Armours,' Cudahys and the other
packers will go very slow on that line.

meat for all time to come.

The populist principle of the public
ownership of railroads and telegraphs
has proven so ' successful in Europe
that all the 'governments are extend

soon take over six of the eight pri
vate railroad systems in that country,
leaving only two of the smallest and
least . important of lines in private
hands. Frank Carpenter in his letter
from Paris says: "The telegraphs are
under the government, and the charges
are less than- half those of America.

The failure of the American tobacco
trust to get a foothold in England and
its ignominous retreat i3 a comDlete
answer to the republican spell-binders
who declare that trusts flourish just as
well in free trade countries as thev do
under tariff protection.' Since its de
feat in England, the tobacco trust has
been at work extending its power in
this country where the tariff makes it
all powerful in that industry.
Evidence is leaking: out latelv to the
effect that the barbed w"ire trust is
getting the same sort of rebates on the
railroads that the Standard Oil com
pany has so long enjoyed. This barbed
wire trust is the meanest trust in the
whole land and makes a greater dif
ference in the price at which it sells
ts goods to foreigners and American
citizens than any of the other corn-
nines. When the farmer walks un to
the polls and votes for the trust party
ne is a spectacle to gods and men.

According to the United States bu

ton of anthracite coal was imported
, during the fiscal year ending June '30,
1S01. When anthracite was really on

Imported. Since the Dlngley law came
into force importations have fallen off
as follows: 1898, 5,851 tons; 1899, 601
tons; 1900, 156 tons; 1901, 1 ton. All
this time the great dailies have been
declaring that the two great trusts,
oil and anthracite were without pro

to any country.

the many because they have the votes
is a rule of peril that threatens every
institution that we love." That senti
ment ; is treason to our " form of gov
ernment "The rule of the many" is
the very foundation stone upon whilch
this government is built. Any other
sort of rule means an autocracy, or a
monarchy, of divine right. Of the de
generacy of which Dr. Hillis speaks,
he is himself the most remarkable example.'-

on account of the impossibility of
making enlistments. This blowing is
only a campaign fake.
The report of the United States com
missioner. of education just 4 issued
shows that the total of pupils in the
schools, ; elementary, secondary and
higher, both public and private, in the
United States for the year ending June
30, 19ol, was 17,299,230 an increase of
278,520 pupils over the previous year.
Of this number 15710,394 were enrolled
in schools supported by local and gen
eral taxation. An army like ' this is
the pride of any nation much more
than the army that wears uniforms
and carries guns. ' "
The republican spell-binders and edi
tors are glorifying over, the order to
reduce the army, and the same is the
greatest fake ever perpetrated during
a campaign. The truth is that every
effort has been made to get men to en
list in the army. Great, high colored
The coal strike has ended, the min

true that money talks." The proof
reader or compositor may have been'
to blame, but evidently that writer
should have said: "The $2,750,000,000
that the savings banks owe tells
the tale." If there is that much money
in the savings banks, then no one else
has any, for there is not more than
that much money in the whole coun
The Star claims to be an up-to-date
paper, but last Wednesday it pub-
ished a cartoon of the Standard Oil
trust with this inscription under it:
it protection is the mother of trusts,
why is it that the biggest monopoly we
have is hatched from a free trade
egg?" Think of that, days after all
the papers in the United States had
been pointing out that the Standard
Oil trust was about as highly protected
as anything in the whole country!
Rose water says: "Bryan certainly
must know that the senate as at pres
ent constituted will enact no law that
would curtail the privileges or con
flict with the interests of the coal
barons and giant corporations com
monly called trusts." Sad as it may
be, Bryan must also know that the
editor of the Bee has spent all the
energies of his long and active life
n aiding to constitute the senate as it
now exists. From the above paragraph
t apears that the editor of the Bee,
after these years of fierce conflicts,
ooks back only upon a wasted life.
Ordinarily . the editorials in the
Brooklyn Eagle are well written, even
though one cannot agroe with the de
ductions. But that paper's answer to
Senator Allen's recent editorial on the
democratic outlook is a lot of twaddle
that does the Eagle no credit. What
particular brand of democracy does
the Eagle represent anyway?. And in
what minute particular does this
brand differ from pure, unadulterated
republicanism as expounded by Mark
Hanna? The Independent is curious to
The freight rates on hard coal, which
3 easily handled, not perishable and
s hauled in a low grade of cars, is
twice that of wheat, corn or cotton
and higher than those on general mer
chandise. That brings this contest
within the .interstate commerce act.
Those rates are unreasonable. But
then the coal trust is bigger than the
government and we will have to en
dure the oppression until a govern
ment is instituted at Washington that
is bigger than the trusts.
The republicans of Nebraska have
been denouncing the anthracite coal
barons, but for twenty years they have
been voting for the tools of the Union
acific railroad which has been taxing
the people or tne west millions in
extra charges on coal which it mines
in direct violation of its charter just
as the anthracite coal roads do. Their
attorney named the candidate for gov
ernor ten days before the convention
and If 'our man Mickey" is elected
tue Union Pacific will continue to do
just as the Pennsylvania barons have
done. The road has a strike on now
and "has nothing to arbitrate." While
the Nebraska republicans will de
nounce Baer, he will vote for exact
ly the same thing that Baer has stood
for any pay the taxes that the Union
Pacific ought to pay, besides contri-.
buting to the exchequer of that road
two or three dollars a ton above a
fair price for all the Wyoming coal
that he uses. A republican is a
"queer critter" anyhow.
