The American people are not of the
kind who will for many centuries, neither
for very many years, submit to an injus
tice or a species of petty tyranny, that
they can rid themselves of readily. They
have been compelled in several very im
portant matters in their history to allow
'the tares to grow with the wheat" until
the time of harvest, but the saving of the
grain and the destruction of the tares
has been a very effectual matter when
they did get around to it. The one
notable example of this, known and read
of the whole world, was the abolition of
slavery. Another was the opposition
instituted against polygamy. Another,
which will doubtless in time prove as
effectual, will be the handling of the
trusts. Our laws are usually all right
The main trouble comes in when com
panies' and corporations combine against
the public interest in selfish defiance of
the rights of others. When the Ameri
can people become thoroughly convinced
of something wrong at the root, they
have been sometimes a little more lenient
than the real situation demands, and
have allowed things to continue that
they would have been justified in utterly
abolishing. It looks as though the time
had now fully come for the good people
of this country to enforce existing laws
against the trusts, and get after them so
close and so hard that the evils of them
will be done away with. The laws are
right. Enforce them. The crowd of
men who go into your fields and steal
your cattle; to your pens and load up
and haul away your hogs; to your
chicken-coops and pilfer your fowls are
just the same kind of fellows exactly who
conspire againBt public interests. The
decision of the U. S. supreme court last
week in the Addyson Pipe case shows
that the anti-trust law of 1890 reaches
further than had generally been thought
It is with that as with nearly every other
great evil in this country if present
laws were enforced the evils would soon
be remedied. These is no doubt about
THE POWER AND THE ABILITY OF THE
A shooting affair which almost re
sulted in a murder, occurred on Charles
Breeder's farm six miles northeast of
Wisner last Saturday afternoon. Otto
Wieland, who is a renter on the Dress
ier farm, got into an altercation with the
latter over some question pertaining to
the premises, which so enraged Brassier
that he discharged a revolver at Wie
land, striking him in the thigh. As
soon as the shot was fired. Wieland
snatched the weapon and proceeded to
pound Breasler's head. After a short
struggle, both became unconscious,
when one of the family immediately
went to Wisner and telephoned for
Sheriff Phillips, who went there the
same evening to arrest Bressler, placing
him in the county jail where he was
subsequently released at 81,200 bond.
His preliminary hearing will take place
the 27th of December. Wieland is still
in bed and seems to be in a bad condi
tion, although complete recovery is prob
able. West Point Democrat
Certainly, the country is in a pros
perous condition, if prosperity is to be
measured by the fact that the farms of
the country have produced well; by the
fact that mechanics in shops and fac
tories are busy; by the fact that the
mines in the bowels of the earth are more
than usually full of active life these
times; by the fact that the railroad and
steamship lines are having an extraordi
nary run of business, all of which seems
likely to be continued for the future.

The rule of the law. is that private
property cannot be taken for public use
without compensation. The streets and
alleys of a city, the public highway are
for the travel of the public, but they do
not thus acquire any right of travel over
adjacent land. We have occasionally
seen on the sidewalks of the city people
who acted as though the sidewalks were
their property, to do with them pretty
much what they would, when all their
right was simply that of passing along
and over them.
