The fifth of an extraordinary series
of weddings has just been celebrated
in Paradise Valley, near Orovllle, Cal.
The first was that of Johr Weer, a
Cornish widower with four good look

wedded Mrs. Malaria, a French widow
with four sons. The boys and girls
have now been all mated and the five
couples live under the same roof.

President John Henry Barrows of
Oberlin College, announces that John
D. Rockefeller has offered Oberlin
$200,000 on condition that the college
raise 1300,000 during the present year.
As $150,000 of this is already pledged,
there seems to be no doubt that the
college wil claim the gift before Janu

presidency of Dr. Barrows, the endow
ment has been increased by 700,000,
not counting the $500,000 expected
from the sources just mentioned.

"'Russia has decided that it wants the
American bicycle, having tired of the
more clumsy English and German ar
ticle. Such are the comforting reports
received by the managers of the Amer
ican Bicycle company, which does
much of the exporting of American
machines. Russia finds more popular
use for the machine at a moderate
price than it has found heretofore, and
the many American-made machines
that travelers about Europe have seen
have convinced them of the superiority
of our machines over those of Euro
pean make. So there la an unusual de
mand this year, a fact which pleases
the American maker who finds the de
mand here falling off as compared with
that which existed when all America
was bicycle mad.
"Threatened men live long," some
times when, for instance, they chance
to be criminals whose counsel are anx
ious to make a record. Almost ten
years ago a man In the state of Wash
lngton was convicted of murder in the
first degree and sentenced to be
hanged. That sentence has been thrice
reaSnsed, but the man has not bees
hanged yet The state supreme court
and the United States Supreme court
have had the case before them, in the
form of exceptions and objections, dur
ing these ten years, and the con
demned man's attorney declares that
he has still "many cards to play."
Such attempts to "cheat the gallows"
have the evil effect of arousing against
a convict a sentiment which is not
easily to be distinguished from vln
dlctiveness. Few persons know that the United
States government derives an Income

As the decision of the supreme court
in the Porto Rican cases has decided
that congress alone is the governing
power in our new territorial posses
sions, it is incumbent on "the people to
impress their senators and representa
tives before the next session with the
kind of government the people of these
territories are to have, and if the con
stitution is to be extended to them the
same as in Alaska and other posses
sions. Shall they have the right to ad
minister their own local government,
the right of trial by Jury, and tax
themselves for school and other pur
poses as seems best to them? Speaking
of the decision the New York World
says. Here are four facts which ought
not to be overlooked:
First Five of the nine Justices were
opposed to the oriental expansion de
lusionWhite, Fuller, Peckham, Har
lan and Brewer. If White had not
disagreed 'Ith the others as to the
constitutional method of avoiding the
expansion that contracts, the vote of
the court would have to be reversed.
Second Eight of the nine Justices
dismissed the pet theory of the colo
nialists the "extra constitutional"
powers of the government whereunder
the colonists would have been the po
litical slaves of our officials, instead of,
as now, legally entitled to some of our
constitutional rights.
Third The court put the responsi
bility squarely upon congress, so that
congress will have to answer directly
to the people for whatever la done in
the colonies. There can be no play
ing of shuttlecock between the presi
dent, congress and the supreme court.
Fourth While the supreme court
has held that the constitution does not
forbid colonial expansion, It has not
held that the constitution enjoins colo
nial expansion.
From the great question all factors
are now eliminated, except the politi
cal. The fundamental questions. Does
it pay? Is it sensible? Is it Just? Is
it worthy of the beliefs and the aspira
tions of the people of the republic
can and must now be answered.
And if the people cannot answer
these questions sensibly and Justly,
how long would a constitutional bir
have been effective to restrain them
from self-destruction? If the princi
ples of the republic have departed from
the people, if the only force or even if
the chief force of those high principles
had was in a supposed constitutional
restraint from Injustice and folly, then
Indeed it Is excusable to tremble for
the republic.
TION. It will not be long before congress
will meet again, and Hanna will again
be introducing his one hundred and
eighty million dollar ship subsidy
scheme. The only chance to defeat it
Is to urge your senators and represen
tatives to vote against it and call on
your neighbors to do likewise and
mark every congressman for slaughter
that does not openly oppose it when
caucus and convention times comes
There has never before been at
tempted a more barefaced scheme to
loot the United States treasury than Is
proposed In the bill fathered by Sena
tor Hanna and recommended by Presi
dent McKlnley? The republican party
has in the past often forced subsidy
steals through congress and in nearly
every case great scandals were brought
to light of the corruption used in
passing them. This bill will lead to a
much greater corruption, as the mod
ern trust surpasses the old time com
mercial company, and will smirch the
characters of nil who favor it.
The advocates of subsidies for ocean
shipping still harp on the old subject
of reviving American commerce, says
the Chicago Chronicle. They describe
the Infrequent appearance of the Am
erican flag in foreign ports and say
that It must be restored to its former
popularity on the high seas. American
shipping has been driven from the
ocean because the tariff has raised the
cost of every article used In the con
struction of American vessels. .Having
made the cost of vessel construction so
high as to drive our commerce from
the ocean, the subsidylsts now want
the taxpayers to make up the differ
ence In cost between building ships in
Englsnd snd building them In the
United States. Tbey tax the people to
the extent of robbery for the purpose
of making shipbuilding costly and then
would tax the people to pay the ship
builders for the extra cost of building
ships. That Is subsidy snd tariff

what the Press says:
"Persons spending some weeks
abroad must purchase articles of ordi
nary wear. They are permitted under
the law to expend $100 on personal ef
fects. If tbey take oath to the faet
that they have not made purchases
subject to duty that oath ought to bs
sufficient. Every one of them is
obliged to sign a paper while the ves
sel is coming up the harbor. What Is
the sense, then, in making these pas
sengers open their trunks for some ruf
fian and under the present regula
tions the average inspector feels It In
cumbent upon himself to act like a ruf
fianto paw over and scatter the con
tents upon the dirty flooring? The
regulations under which the New York
custom house is run are something'
Now these ruffians are Republicans
selected by Boss Piatt and approved by
the officers whom President McKlnley
has appointed. Yet It does seem a
shame that when the Postmaster Gen
eral returns from a trip abroad, after
having hobnobbed with the crowned
heads and nobility of England and Eu
rope, with probably a dozen pairs of
kid gloves, some suits of genuine
Scotch tweed all wool and a yard
wide, unlike the Philadelphia Imita
tionand perhaps a piece of silk vel
vet that may hereafter adorn the wife
of the secretary, to have a "ruffian"
paw over all- this finery, even after he
has declared nothing subject to duty
and worst of all, scatter these beauti
ful Importations on the dirty floor Is a
sin and a shame. But what can the
secretary do about It, the law la no
respecter of persons, no matter how
high and august they may b?, and the
penalty for smuggling covers all
The only redress that appears avail
able is to repeal the law and return to
the good old American custom of
tariff for revenue only, and as even
then baggage would be examined, to
replace the "ruffians" with some hon
est Populists who have clean hands
and not such beasts with paws, as
Secretary Smith describes so graphi
The monopoly in the iron and steel
industry is now as complete as in the
coal ldustry and in the oil industry,
says the Modern Culture Magazine. It
is noteworthy that these three great
monopolies are all of mineral produc
tions upon the use and enjoyment of
which the industrial life of the nation
depends. Tbey are controlled by a
small group of allied capitalists, some
of whom bold shares in all of them.
They employ the cheapest, as well as
some of the better paid, grades of la
bor in extra hazardous occupations,
and the relations between employer
and employed in the past have been
extremely unsatisfactory. The con
trast between the lot of the ill-paid
miner taking his life in bis hands to
toll and grub in the dark, ill-ventilated
tunnels In the bowels of the earth for
the bare pittance that will keep soul
and body together and his family from
the poorhouse, and that of the presi
dent of the corporation which employ
him, whose every clock-tick counts a
miner's dally wage added to his sal
ary, is the most startling of all the In
equalities of fortune the world has yet
seen. "
It will hardly be contended that the
fathers of the republic contemplated
such a superstructure when they laid
the foundations of American liberty on
the common law with its exaggerated
regard for the "sacred rights" of prop
erty. It is to the common law that
we owe the definition of land titles
which makes them include the miner
als beneath the soil and the sunlight
and atmosphere above it. Yet it is an
absurdity of reasoning which makes
the ownership of each square foot of
surface extend from the center of the
earth to the limits of space, and it is
within the power of congress and the
state legislatures to correct this ab
surdity whenever It Is made clear to
the public conscience that a monstrous
injustice Is worked by it. The power
of the aiwl trust, ths coal trust. Us
oil trust, and of every other great
monopoly is "based In the last instance
upon some monoply of unused land."
The ability to control the available
supply of some commodity and to with
hold from use the surplus product, Is
the essential feature of every trust. If
the state would exercise its undoubted
right and power to tax oil and mineral
lands for their full rental value so
long as s monopoly existed in any
mineral product it would at once be
come unprofitable for any corporation
or Individual to bold such lands idle.
They must be worked to their full ca
capacity or they would revert to the
state for taxes. In either case the
"corner," or destructive monopoly,
would cease. The average royalty
paid to owners of bituminous coal
lands Is ten cents per ton of coal
mined. The average royalty paid to
owners of Iron lands Is thirty cents
per ton of ore mined. A tax of like
amount levied on the full productive
capacity of mineral lands owned, teas
ed, or opersted by trusts would put s
handicap on the efforts of great cor
porations to gain absolute control of
the earth and all Its productions; and
soma portion of the revenues so se
cured might be wisely employed is al
leviating the toil and wretchedness of
the lives of miners.

The more decision of the Supreme
Court is analyzed by the ablest law
yers, tbe lees it seems that ths future
U settled. One says: "Justice White
one of the majority Judges, In one
case in delivering bis opinion did so
by saying "the court would decide that
a tax on goods going from Porto Rico
to the United States was legal; be took
great pains not to allude to traffic go
ing both ways. Perhaps this was due
to the limitation of "today" in bis as
sertion, but, in any event, the deter
ring of an opinion on that point is
"If it should decide that the 15 per
cent duty was valid on goods coming
this way, but invalid on goods going
the other, it would be very embarras
sing for Congress to legislate for the
colonies. Free trade one way and pro
tection the other would not accord
with the spirit of fair play of the
American people. Four of the Justices
are ranged against the tariff, even on
colonial Imports, but the only one of
the remaining five needs to scruple on
exports to turn an administration vic
tory Into a practical defeat."
And regarding the Philippines some
of the ablest lawyers in Washington
say without hesitation that Congress
cannot invest tbe President with auth
ority to make revenue laws and that
the Supreme Court is bound to declare
all collections of duties under present
conditions without authority. This
leads to the opinion that when another
case comes before tbe court or if a re
hearing Is granted on one of tne cases
already decided the court may reverse
Its decision and the edict will go forth
that the constitution does follow the
flag and this result is the more likely,
for Justice White said in effect at
least, many able lawyers who listened
intently to his words as tbey were ut
tered, so interpret them that his sole
reason for sustaining the act was be
cause Its revenue provisions expire by
limitation in a few months. This" frank
statement raises the question in tbe
minds of lawyers "Will Justice White
vote to sustain a similar act if Con
gress shonld decide hereafter to con
tinue the Porto Rico tariff?
The answer to this by many of the
distinguished persons who were pres
ent at the proceedings is negative.
Senator Mason, who sat throughout
the reading of the opinion, said to
night that he felt quite sure Justice
White had made it clear that hU only
reason for sustaining the Foraker tar
iff was because it does not run Indef
Since the discovery of the Cuban
postal frauds for which Rathbone and
Neely have not yet been brought to
trial and the corruption in the Phil
ippines, it is necessary that the civil
service should be filled by men whose
antecedents assure a faithful and hon
est performance of their duties. This
Is especially necessary in the appoint
ments for the positions In the new ter
ritories or colonies, but the adminis
tration does not take this view of the
case. It has used no diligence In ascer
taining if those recommended have
these requirements, but merely if par
tlzan purposes were to be favored and
its most obnoxious benchmen reward
ed. So great has this evil become and
so notorious have been most of the
appointments, that even those news
papers, that otherwise have supported
the policy of ths president, are now
strongly rebuking bim.
We think that President McKlnley,
says tbe New York Times, ought to put
a stop to this sort of thing. There Is
no doubt of his power to do it There
is no doubt that he is In a perfectly
safe position to do It He would not
endanger the success of his party, and
he has no personal ambitions to srve.
The backward drift of bis party from
the standard of merit In appointments
that was set his predecessor Is dis
creditable to blm and dangerous to the
best Interests of the party. It tends
directly to the guidance of tbe party
action by the least worthy and the
most ignorant, and that In the long
run must be disastrous. Especially it
tends to bring Into positions of activity
and control In the party men of cor
rupt purposes and men who can be
bought In the near future the Re
publican party will have need of all
Its virtues and firmness to resist tbe
venal forces seeking to use It The
president should see that bis Indul
gence to the spoilsmen Is weakening It
There Is no doubt that there Is a
screw loose somewhere In ths figures
given out by tbe Treasury Department
on what is known as "tbe balance of
trade." The political economists bsre
for some time claimed that the figures
are unreliable as we have evidently
received pay for only a part of their
enormous balance on paper In our
favor. Prodded by public opin
ion Secretary Gage has prom
ised to Investigate ths matter,
but his experts evidently bsve
been unable to furnish ths Informa
tion, unless a very lame statement
given out by the bureau of statistics
Is claimed as sa explanation.
Ths elalm of ths Democrats that ths
figs res given were misleading and had
probably been padded for polltcal of
fset to show ths enormous prosperity
attalaad under ths protective tariff and
ths beneficent rats of the trusts, to bo
la froTtf). Ths raattsr has canes so
muck attention that ths financiers
have been making Investigation oa
their owa account for ths Chicago
Chronicls says:
Certain New York bankers are quot
ed as saying that the enormous bal
ance apparently due the United States
on account of foreign trade is a myth.
One of them points out that since
abort the 1st of April large amounts
of sixty and ninety day bills of ex
change have been drawn by American
banking houses. These are not drawn
against balances abroad, but are essen
tially loan bills. If balances existed
abroad there would be demand bills.
He expresses the opinion that V" rich
Americans residing abroad spend a very
large amount In the aggregate which
th j draw from the United States antf
a large part of the balance appar
ently due us Is absorbed In this way.
At the time when tbe drawing of these
long bills began the merchandise bal
ance in our favor for the preceding
nine months was over $540,000,000. Add
to this a net export of $21,000,000 In
sliver and deduct a net import of less
than $20,000,000 In gold and we still
have $535,000,000 apparently due us
on nine months trade, or at the rate of
$715,000,000 for entire fiscal year. This
Is an enormous sum to be consumed in
peyment of freights to foreign ship
owners. In expenditures of Americans
touring and. residing abroad and In
payment for securities sent home. Dur
ing the last three fiscal years and tbe
first three-quarters of this year tbe
apparent balance due us on account of
merchandise, gold and silver, was $2,
144,000,000, round figures. The mer
chandise balance was $2,230,000,000, In
settlement of which the net Import of
gold and silver was only $86,000,000.
If all the apparent balance remaining
is a myth our treasury statistics are
very far from exhibiting the true state
of our foreign trade.
The low price of wool and tbe light
demand for woolen goods of American
manufacture under tbe almost prohibi
tive duties of tbe Dinglcy tariff shows
tbe utter absurdity of ultra protection.
It kills the goose that lays the golden
eggs by too high and pampered feeding.
The farmers were led to believe that
their small flocks would be so remu
nerative when the Dlngley tariff was
enacted and that the exactions that tbe
tariff demanded on the other necessi
ties of life would be more than com
pensated for and they would grow rich.
They have now found out their mis
take and the wool growers and the
woolen manufacturers are about ready
to return to -the tariff for revenue, un
der which they were more prosperous
than they are today.
If it was not for the mutton sheep,
the raising of which has done away
with the dislike for mutton which was
distasteful to many American palates,
the decrease of our flocks would be
greater than It has been. The further
reason for tbe decline in the prica of
wool and the demand for woolen goods
is told by the Courier-Journal, which
The present high duty on raw wool
Is producing the effect which has often
been pointed out by free traders. The
high duties on imported woolens ex
cludes them as elements of competition
except by the payment of greatly ad
vanced prices. But there Is no way to
force people to buy woolens If tbey are
unwilling to pay the price. Higher
prices, other things being equal, mean
reduced consumption. In the ease of
woolens, the manufacturers are com
pelled to meet tbe demand for goods at
a moderate price, and they can only do
so by a (Jeterioratiou cf the products.
Hence the Increased rise of cotton and
shoddy in the manufacture of so-called
When once men have been enslaved

The masters have been kinder since

President McKlnley has not taken
