News of the YYeeK
.The attempt to arrest thirty-two
miners in West Virginia for a viola
tion of the blanket injunction issued
by Judge Keller last August, resulted
in a battle between the federal marsh
als and a sheriff's posse in whicn
three men were killed, three mortally
wounded and a large number slightly
wounded. Seventy-three arrests were
made, ten by the marshals and the re
mainder by the sheriff. A somewhat
extended account was given in the
dailies concerning the battle, but af-
. ter that they shut up like clams. What
has happened since nobody knows.
' Perhaps the dailies have come to the
conclusion that the Keller blanket, in
junction was such an outrageous vio
lation of the natural rights of man as
well as of the constitution, that the
best thing to do was to say nothing.

Senator Beveridge undertook to tack
another British idea on to this govern

The defeat in the house of Senator
Patterson's bill to appoint a commia

United States Consul McWade, lo
cated at Canton, China, reports that

It is said that the new legislation
against rebates and discriminations
applies to the granting of passes and
that the road3 will hereafter l. grant

great drain on the roads and several
times "gentlemen's agreements" have
been made to abolish It which were
never observed longer than about 24
hours. The law will give an excuse to
the roads to cut off a good deal of it,
but as far as the abolishment of all
passes are concerned, that will be got
around by the time the next republi
can campaign begins.

The republicans were lifeely in a
tight box when ; they' unseated a duly
elected- democrat just before the close
of the session. As there was no politi
cal necessity, the republicans already
having a good working majority, the
only conclusion that can be reached is
that the man whom they seated was
in a position to ruin the party if he
was not seated. Perhaps he had in
formation alid could give evidence that
would have made it very unpleasant
for some of the leaders. The fight that
the democrats have since kept up is

George B. Cortelyou, secretary of
commerce, has large ideas of the im
portance of the new department He
wants over $600,000 for expenses and a
$7,000,000 building for an office. The
new head of the new department ap
preciates the importance of the office
for which he has been selected and
appreciates -the opportunities it af
fords, for usefulness.
A $7,000,000 BUILDING
would be none too good for the depart
ment of commerce. . It should be an
architectural gem and should be dis
tinctly appropriate to the idea of com
merce. Old Corinth was a commer
cial center. The noble Corinthian
architecture of the ancient Greeks was
developed out of the enlightened self
ishness known as commerce. We want
in this new building the American
ideal original, significant and ornate.
THE BANKERS RESERVE LIFE
will watch the development of this
department with great interest, for
under its roof will one day be housed
a bureau of life insurance. By that
time the young Nebraska company
will be one of the greatest western
life companies. - Already taking rank
among the best, its report J;o the audi
tor for 1903 shows a phenomenal
growth, and a promise for the future
which makes alien competitors green
with envy. ." '
