OPEN WAR ON COPPER TRUST
Combine is Charged With Holding
Now York, Jan. 28. President
James Noroton of the Northonbtern
Metal Dealers' association made publiu
the following letter, which, on in
structions from the association, ho
has sent to Attorney Generul Hona
parte at Washington:
"Referring to our telegram to you
respecting tho combination of copper
interests In this country, I bug to lay
before you the following facts, which
we aro prepared to prove:
"That tho copper truBt has created
an artificial scarcity of copper by
storing it In large quantities at Butte,
Mont.; Hoboken, N. J.; Perth Amboy,
N. J.; I'ayonno, N. J.; Hlsueo, Ariz.;
Cannnea, Mex.; Houghton, Mich., and
other places known to our association
and refusing to sell it except in sninll
quantities. That thero is now stored
at Perth Amboy 8,000 tons of retined
copper and that all Intending pur
chasers aro told the supply has been
exhausted. That there are 1,700 tons
of copper at Hoboken. That there are
stored in similar manner at Uutto,
Mont., 9,000 tons; at Ulsboo, .1,000
tons, and 7,rno tons at Cananea and
Houghton, Mich. That the steamer
Hindustan, Captain Uallton. on Oct
29 last, sailed for South Africa with
1,000 tons of copper ballast, with no
orders for its delivery in any port ol
Suoth Africa and that the Hindustan
returned to New York on Dec. 29, still
carrying the copper as ballast..
"Wo admit that the present danger
to the trade is not so much tho high
price of copper as is the fear that the
prlre. being held at an artificial
height, may bo lowered suddenly
should the copper combination suc
ceed in selling Its stored up product
at tho present quotations"

HOLDS OLD MASTERS INDECENT,
Why It Should Excite Moro Horror
Than Any Othor Murder.
As to It moral aspects, suicide Is
imiuliV-'lly forbidden by the l.lno
law.. One of the coinniandnients of the
Decalogue declares, '"I hou slialt not
kill." To make the law as compre
hensive as possible It Is not said,
"Thou shalt not kill thy neighbor,"
which (nullifying phrase Is employed
In some of the other commandments
as, for instance, "Thou slialt not bear
false witness against they neighbor;"
"Thou -tIi not covet tii.v neighbor's
house." The prohibition to kill Is there,
fore absolute. It forbids the taking of
human life, whether by suicide or
Thero Is another commandment
which says, "Thou shalt love thy
neighbor in thyself." Now, the loe
which we owe to our neighbor forbids
us to slay him, and therefore the love
which we owe to ourselves forbids us
to compass our own death. If the Inw
allowed us to kill ourselves, while f.-r-liblditig
us to kill our neighbor, our
love for our neighbor would not be
equal, but superior, to our love for our
selves. Xav, I bold that sulfide Is n more re
volting sin than the klllln.r of imuthcr.
The clover the ties of relation-dtp be
tween the murderer end bis victim the
more atrocious Is the crime. I.i the
estimation of mankind, a parricide, or
matricide, or fratricide, or uxori- ido, is
a more slior-kiiig criminal than mi ordi
nary homicide. And as n man bun
more intimate relations to himself
than to a parent or brother or wife, Ills
deliberate self destruction .should ex
cite more horror than the murder of a
parent, brother or wife. Cardinal Gib
