THE eastern editors who persistently

Tin : Sunday closing question at the
"World's fair has once more risen Hko

and cannot bo fruitful of result.
THE New York Evening Post cites two
Ceases where shopkeepers In the vicinity
'of the metropolis have refused to accept
silver dollars except at discounts of 40
and 47 per cent respectively. This is ,
of course , a violation of the law , as the
silver dollar Is by statute made a legal
tender. Merchants in this part of the
country nro glad to accept any money

THK presidential succession in Moxlcc
lj already attracting attention , The
interests and industries of the United
States arc now so closely allied to thai
country that the political campaign wil
bo uioro-ulosoly observed from this sidt
the Rio Orando than hitherto. Gov
ernor Koyoa of the state of Nuova Looi
is spoken of us the one who will prob
nbly bo cho&on to succeed President Dia :
nt the close of Itis pru.iont term. lie is 1
spoken of aa u man of much the sami
mould and pro rossivo character as tin
p-osont chief executive of our neighbor
A SHOUT sfis.s'/o-v
I'fipors thftt are umlcMtood to bo close
to the ndmhilftlratlon tirjja that the ex
tra pcsilr n bo made as short as possible.
Thn ? the Phllttdolphlu Lulycr says that
"a lung , contentious session should , for
many gmnl tviHoii-t. bo avoided. " It sug
gests that the silver qtioitlon In enoh
and nil of ill various phases Inw boon
Buftlciontly discussed , that the { iroprirty
of the repeal of the Shornum law is not
n matter for debate , mid there should
bo no delay growing nut of debate.
"Tho Inexorable logic of facts , " snys
the Lttlijcr , "tho financial dis
turbances , the mercantile embar
rassments , of which the act has
been the fruitful cause from
Maine to Now Mexico , demand that con-
groH shn.ll not waste good time in talk
ing about doing that which should bo
immediately done , and which the most
vital Interests of the country demand
shall bo oxpcdltioiisly done. " The idea
is that congress should promptly elect a
speaker , and ai once pass a resolution
( riving the secretary of the -treasury
authority to discontinue purchases of
silver , or to dlrdctly repeal the com
pulsory purchasing cltufeo of tlio Sher
man act.
Doubtless this is good advice. A pro
longed contention over the silver ques
tion would unquestionably have the
effect to aggravate nnd intensify the
distrust and depression which It is so
dcsirablo and important to relieve as
BOOH us possible. But there is very little
probability that the advice will bo
heeded , even though it bo known to
represent the desire of the administra
tion. The extreme silver men have
already plainly given out that they do
not intend to surrender without a strug
gle and it is not to bo doubted that they
have it in their power to make a long
fight. Tlio prerequisite to prompt action
and a short session is such a change in
the rules of the last congress , which will
bo in force until the now congress is
organized , as will prevent filibustering.
This is recognized by members of the
majority party , who also sco that the
task is likely to bo a dilllcult one that
may take a good deal of time. The free
silver men will light any change in the
rules designed to put a check upon them
and from all appearances they will have
the advantage in the content. They will
contend that the democratic majority
cannot afford to adopt the methods
which prevailed in the last re
publican house and in this posi
tion they are very likely to have
the sympathy and support of demo
crats who are not friendly to free
silver but are on record in hostility to
the "gag-rule precedents of Speaker
Reed. " Much will depend , of course ,
upon the attitude of tlio republicans ,
who may not feel called upon to take
any part in making the rules for u dem
ocratic house , whatever they may think
of the wibdoui of providing1 a check to
filibustering and other obstructive
tactics. They may with entire pro
priety leave this question of parliamentary
tary methods to bo settled by the demo
crats and it is quite possible they will
do so. In that case the chances of a
short session will bo small.
The indications are that not much
time will bo wasted in the organization
of the house of representatives. The
re-election of Judge Crisp is practically
conceded , and ho will doubtless bo able
to announce the committees within a
day or two. Then will como the tighten
on the rules , and no one can say how
long that may last. It will not bo sur
prising if the extra session shall run on
to the date for the meeting of the
regular session in December , and oven
then the purpose for which the session
is called may not bo accomplished.
Ill a timely article in the current num
ber of The Iforth American Itcview , Albion
W.Totirgco estimates that the feeling of
apprehension against trusts , as combina
tions of capital intended to take advan
tage of the necessities of the many for
the bcnofit of the few , uro culled , is quite
as general , perhaps , in the east as in the
west. The demand for remedy and re
striction is louder , more emphatic and
more general in the west , however. He
llnds the reason for this in the more
rcliant and independent character of the
western people , who immigrated to this
country. "Thosowho tarried in thocast
wore largely servants and employes who
sought only a better service. " Such a
population as that of the west is "natur
ally more restive under conditions which
they believe are both dangerous and
remediable than one which has in
herited the idea that however harsh
they may bo , they are quite Incurable ;
that the only way to avoid being crushed
on the lower levels is to lie down and
try to worm one's way to the upper
ones. "
Mr. Tourgco , with the fairness of judg
ment and statement that should char
acterize evnry writer on economic sub
jects , recognizes that this crusade
against trusts "is not a orusado against
wealth any more than democracy is a
crusade against power. " It is merely
the "most pronounced form of the protest
against the most evidently dangerous
feature of plutocratic control. It is only
a demand for the restriction of power
exorcised by combined accumulation , as
democracy was a crusade against the
power of combined privilege. "
Another blgnllli-ant feature of Mr
Tourgoo's paper is that he recognize *
it Is not easy to dodno the
relation of this anti-trust hcntimonl
to the iiopullst party. "That onlj
, a small portion of it is represented
by that party is evident to any obso-vor
\Vhllo antagonism to trusts is one of the
tenets of Unit organization , it has iO
many others , and they nro of iOm
heterogeneous a nature , that they seen
to have driven from its support many o
the more conservative of these witl
whom this antagonism is deepest. Tin
strength cf this movement docs not con
rtlbt of men who are cither bcciallsta nor
revolutionists. They do not expect thi
world to ho made over in a moment , no
bullovu In any untested curo-all fo
oconomle ills. They simply believe tlm
u great and growing evil exists am
; must be lumedlcd , "
This clear exposition depicts fully thi
depth and character of the sontlmon
- that is developing against this form c
control. It is guided by the ubstruu
law of self preservation. It Is merely
the transfer to this now country of the conflict botwcon the strong and
the wonk recorded throughout the his
tory of feudalism. It Is confined to no
wlltical party , or social condition It
t the pomitar protest against the power
f unrestricted accumulation. The
writer seeks not to consider the reme
dies that might avail or the moans by
which they may be applied. "Thoro is
10 doubt that the same connection whleh
iias made the principle of the Granger
cases an Integral part of our law and
lias forced all parties to admit the right
of state and nation to regulate corporate
control of transportation will lind n way
to restrict the power of capitalistic com
bines ot every sort nnd character , and
relieve our civilization of the peril of a
feudalism based on wealth. "
A question of very great importance
to American railway Interests , which
the next congress will undoubtedly bo
called upon to consider , is that of chang
ing or modifying the regulations by
which the Canadian railroads are now
enabled to hccuro a very largo amount
of trafllc botwcon American points that
would otherwise go to tlio domestic
roads. This question has been discussed
for a number of years and apparently is
no nearer nscttlomcntthan at the bogln-
nincr. At the last regular session of the
senate the interstate commerce commit
tee was directed to make a thorough
examination of the question of the rela
tion of the United States and Canada
with regard to railroad transportation ,
with particular reference to the exist
ing laws and regulations governing the
transportation of vCanadian cars over
American territory. The convening of
congress In August will probably neces
sitate a postponement of this investiga
tion , but it is to bo hoped it can bo made
before the time for the regular session
in December. This will , of course , de
pend upon how long the special session
According to n statement recently
made by Congressman-elect Hepburn of
Iowa , who was solicitor of the treasury
under the last administration and in
that capacity gave a great deal of study
to our railroad transportation relations
with Canada and Canadian roads , the
privileges accorded to these foreign cor
porations by the government of the
United States are worth to them proba
bly $20,000,000 , annually. This trtitllc ,
Mr. Hepburn observed , naturally and
properly belongs to American roads ,
and if controlled by these roads would
enable them to give as low rates as their
competitors. Not being subject to the
long and short haul clause of the inter
state commerce act , the Canadian
roads possess many advantages over
the American lines with which
they compote. It is contended
that besides the great injury done to
our own roads by permitting this largo
trafllc to bo diverted to the foreign cor
porations the present method is most
unsafe to the revenue interests of the
government. Mr. Hepburn is of the
opinion that no legislation is necessary
to effect the desired change in the ex
isting regulations , the secretary of the
treasury having ample authority to do
so. The matter was carefully considered
ored by both Secretaries Windom and
Foster , and from the fact that they took
no action it is a fair inference that they
were not satisfied that they possessed
the power to act.
It is as well as assured.that a strong
pressure will bo brought by the Amer
ican transcontinental railroads to in
duce congress to adopt a policy which
will give them the control of all rail
road transportation across the continent ,
without interference by their Canadian
competitors , and it is no loss certain
that this will bo met by an equally vig
orous pressure to prevent any serious
interference with that competition. An
investigation similar to the one now or
dered was made by a senate commit
tee some three years ago and it
developed a practically unanimous senti
ment in Now England and the north
west against any extreme measures
looking to the suppression or the ma
terial curtailment of the competition of
Canadian roads. All the testimony
taken showed that while the people of
these sections would not oppose'any
rcasonablo regulation that would require -
quire the foreign corporations to con
form to our laws , they would strenu
ously resist legislation whoso effect
would lw to cut them oil from the ad
vantages which Canadian railway com
petition gives them. This sentiment has
not undergone any change. A Now Eng
land senator recently said in reference
to this question that a policy which
would destroy this competition could
not bo otherwise than injurious to tlio
interests of Now England and it can bo
confidently staled that the producers of
the northwest are us earnest now us
they have over been In the determina
tion not to bo deprived of the trans
portation benefits , both as to facilities
and rates , which the Canadian competi
tion secures to them. The lust udminis-
trution regarded this question as ono of
commanding importance. The position
of the present administration regarding
it is yet to bo defined.

The question wjifcjflior the public works

sion , moro than at any other , the cessa
tion of the work of public improvement
means much to the laboring men of this
city. Now when employment is difficult

when manufacturers "and traders are

tance that some outlet bo afforded the

THE Now York Chamber of Commerce
yesterday adopted resolutions urging
the immediate repeal of the Sherman
act and suggesting the appointment by
congress of a cominls.sion to inquire into
the currency system of this nnd other
countries and report at the regular
session of congress in December. It is
not apparent that the proposed com
mission is necessary or that it could
render any important service. Ex
perience with such bodies has not been
altogether profitable , and there is
nothing- that a currency commission
could ascertain that might not be as
well learned by a committee of congi ess ,
while any recommendations that such a
committee should make would have no
more weight , either with the country or
with congress , than would these of a
congressional committee. It is not likely
that the suggestion will receive any con
