ST. PAUL, Aug. 12. Although yester
day' discussion ot the trust question and
the later action of the resolutions commit
tee in lamorinar the matt.r hart h..n -
garded at the end of consideration of that
prooiem Deiore ine rranamississippi com
mercial congress, such proved not to be
the esse.
When the congress wis called to order
today for the closing session, J. A. Gard
ner ot St.' Louis secured the floor and
moved th adoption of resolutions which
he nresented. Thr. aliirhti. riirr.r.A
the Wetmor resolutions iffered early !n
th session and precipitated another lively
debate. The point of dlsouaalon waa
more whether th proposition would b
looked upon aa partisan action by th
congress than on the merits ot the esse.
Little ot Importance had been left over
for thla closing session, so the attendance
was small, but th warmth ot th debate
mad up for that. A vote was finally
reached before 11 o'clock, and by a vot
of 190 to SO th resolutions were adopted
aa follows:
Whereas, The trust system has been an.i
a menace to republican Institutions, and,
Wneret, If allowed to form combinations
In restraint of trade and the elimination
of competition the wealth of the entire
country will b concentrated in the hands
of a few, and,
Whereae. The said combinations are cal
culated to. destroy the hope and ambition
or the youth of the country, it belnsr well

the young men of this nation have made

Resolved, ny this congress, that the
president of the United States be respect
fully urged to use all the power vested
In his office to the end ihat the growing
power snd the Influence of the trusts may
be destroyed and be it further
Resolved. That If In the wisdom of the
national congress the laws now on the
statute books are Insufficient to suppress
this growing evil, that other more etrln

Th balance of th aession was devoted

Porto Rico tbe Example.
Porto Rico, It Is a pleasure to ssy; may
now serve as Sn examnla nf th.
methods of administering our Insular pos
sessions. So excellent have been the effects
of our administration and l.alaiatinn n-
cernlng this island that their very excel-
una resulted in meir Being almost
forgotten by those at hnm. Th.r. i.
hardly a ripple of failure- on the stream of
our success ana so. ss is spt to be our way,
we do not think of It at all. Y. it la w.i
worth while to think of It and it Is pleasant
to learn by an experience which teaches us
what to follow Instead of what to avoid.
First and foremost In Porto Rico, we have
consistently striven to get the very best
nun iu auinuuaicr me anairs or tne Island.
It is desirsble throua-haut our 'tinhllo
Ice to secure a high standard of efficiency
and integrity, but after all, her at home,
we always have In our own hands the
remedy for any failure tu provide such
Sualltles. In a far-off island things are
lfferent. There, wrong doing Is more easy
.nu inuis wno auner irom 11 are more help
less f while there is less efficient check In
the way of that public opinion to which
puuuo men ar sensitive.
Reqalrenaeats Ar Great.
In conaeauence. th. nlmlnliintinn r,t
thee Islands Is, beyond all other kinds of
anminiairauon in our country, tha one In
which tha highest standard must be de
manded. In making appointments to tho
Insular service it Is necessary to disregard
any question' of mere party expediency and
to look at the matter solely from the
standpoint or tne nonor of our own nation
and the welfare of the Island Itself.
This haa been tha atandnnlnt aith.r.4 tn
In selecting the men who represent our
government in Porto Rico; governor, treas
urer, attorney g.neral. Judges, superintend
ent of education every one. In cone
quence. all Americana should feel a real
pride in the way In which thlr compatriots
who are responsible for the government of
the Island have administered It.
Moreover, In ahaping the government of
tne isiaiin we nave acten with sense st
well as with good faith. V' have not been
frightened or misled Into giving the people
of rhe island a form of government un
suitable for them, and while providing thst
they should govern themselves so far as
possible, we have not hesitated In thetr
own Interest to keep th power of shaping
their destiny.
Record la Caba.
In Cuba th problem was larger, more
complicated and more difficult. Iter again
w kept our promise absolutely. After
having delivered the Island from Ita op
pressors we refused to turn It loose, off
hand, with the certainty that It would alnk
Into chaos and savaa-ery. For over three
years w administered It on a plane higher
than It bad ever reached during the four
centuries sine the Spanlarda first landed
on its shores. W brought moral and
physical cleanliness Into the government;
vve stamped out yellow fever in ltaelf an
Inestimable service both to the Cuban peo
ple and to the people of our own southern
states; we established a school svstem; we
made life and property secure, ao that in
dustry could again begin to thrive; then
wiicn we naa laiu aeeo ana Droaa the
foundations unon which "civil llberiv mnA
national Independence must rest, we turned
the Island over to the hands of those whom
the people had chosen aa the founders of
the new republic.
' le Peeallarly Related.
It Is a renubllo with which our own areat
republic must ever be closely knit by the
ties of common Interette and common as
pirations. Cuba muat alwaya be peculiarly
related to us in international politic. Una
must, In International affairs, be to a de-
free a pari, of our political system; In re
urn she must have peculiar relations with
us economically. 8he must be, In a sense,
part t our economic system. We expect
her to accept a political altitude toward
ua which we think wisest both fur her and
us. in return we must be prepared to put
her In an economic position as regards our
tariff system which will give her some
measure of the prosV.:r!tr whlcH we enjoy.
We cannot. In my judgment, avoid taking
thla attitude if we are to persevere in the
course which we have outlined for our.
selves as a nation during the last four
years, and. therefore. I believe that It is
only a matter ot time, and 1 trust only a
matter of a very ahort time, before we
enter Into reciprocal trade relations with
t'sseerslsg the Canal.
The Isthmian canal represents what la
probably to be the greatest engineering
'-ine greatest iaat or tne kind t the
twentieth century. Hefure w. atari mw.n
th cuuauucUua of th tnal, owuUa v.u-,
tlons of detail and of our relations with the
people owning the soli have to be settled.
When this has been done the first question
Will come up on choosing the commission
which Is to supervise the bullillnn or the
canal. Here again we have to rteal With
an enterprise ao vast and eo fsf-reachlng
In Its effect that but one tnouaht is per
missible how to get the very best men In
the nation, the men of the highest engineer
ing and business and administrative skill,
who will consent to undertake the wora.
If possible I should like to eee these- men
represent different sections and different
political psrllea.
Hut these questions are secondary. The
primary srt must he to get men who.
though able to control grester salaries
than the nation Is able to pnv. nevertheless
possess the patriotism and the heslthy am
bition which will make them willing to put
their talents at ths government's service.
Sansralne of 'Reaalts la Orient.
Bo mich for what has been done In the
Occident. In the Orient the labor was more
difficult. It Is rare Indeed that a great
work, a work supremely worth doing, can
be done save at the cost not only of labor
and toll, but of much puazling worry dur
ing the time of - the performance. Nor
mally the nation that achieves greatness,
like the Individual who achieves -greatness,
can do eo only at the cost of anxiety and
bewilderment and - heart-wearing effort.
Timid people, people scant of faith and
hope, and good people who art not accus-
lomea o tne rougnneas oi tne ine or er
fort, ar almost sure to be disheartened
and dismayed by the work and the worry
ana overmuch cast down by the shortcom
lugs, actual or seeming, which In real lire
always accompany th first stages even of eventually turn, out to D in most
brilliant victories.
All thla In true of What has happened
during th last four years In the Philip
pine Islands. The Spanish war Itself was
an easy task, but it left us certain other
tasks which were much more difficult.
One of these tasks was that of dealing with
th Philippines. The easy thing
the thing which appealed not only to laxy
and selfish man, but to very many good
men whose" thought did not drive them
down to the root of things, was to leave Ui
Some Other Satloa'a Chanee.
Had we done this a period of wild chaos
would hav supcivened and some stronger
jHiwer would have stepped In end seln-d
the islands and hav taken up the task
which we In such a case would hav
flinched from performing.
A leas easy but Infinitely more absurd
course would have been to leave the Islands
Ourselvea and at the anm tlrri. tn aaa.rt
that we would not permit anyone else to
Interfere with them. This particular course
nouia nave combined all the possible flis
advantagea of every other course which
vls advocated. It would have placed us
In a humiliating position, because, when
the actual test came -It wnulit hnv. 'r...
quite out of the question because -some
striking deed of savagery had been com
mitted in the Islands to stand by and pre-
l.r lo-emry oi civilization into tuem,
while the more fact of our having threat
ened thus t0 guarantee the local tyrants
end wrongdoers against outside interfer
ence by ourselvea and others would have
pui a premium upon every specie of
tji.mijr buu anarcny -witnin tne islands.
Success Crowns AH..
Finally ther was the course which w
adopted not an easy course, but one
""", w:tn aanger ana difficulty, as is
genet-ally the case In this world when some
i is 10 oo accomplished as an In
cident to working ojt national destiny,

leianas, to put down violence, to establish
j.c. .,,u uiuer, ana men to Introduce A
Juat and wise civil rule accompanied by a
measure of self government which should
ircrease as rapidly as the islands showed
themselves ready for It. Well, it was a
formidable task, but think of the tnarvel-

relatives ar threatening to go Into court
to secure the large estate left by the lat
Charles L. Fair -and his wife, wh were
killed In an ' automobile accident, ther
now arises a family disagreement with re
gard to the possession of th bodies. Two
hearses arrived at the Church ot th Made
leine at- S o'clock thla afternoon to con
vey th bodies to th railway atation on
th way tb Cherbourg, whera It 1 aatd tb
remains were to be shipped on board th
liner-St.' Paul, aalllag tor New Tork to
morrow. Shortly .after arriving at - th
church th hearses left without getting the
bodies. They mad a turn In the neigh
boring streets and cam back again, but
tha coffins were not ready. - They moved
away again and waited In a street nearby.
Tb undertaker waa greatly annoyed.
, Several persona appeared to be interven
ing In th matter ot th disposition of th
bodies. It was -stated that discord had
arisen owing to tha attempt by tha re
spective families to obtain tbe bodies, al
though neither, family, -to tha aurprlsa of
the people here, seems to cara about hav
ing prayer aald for th dead.
Representatives of both aldet ar con
ferring with Vntted Stat Consul General
Oowdy... who, It -Is understood, cabled
Washington earlier In tha day for Instruc
tions In tha matter.. . It Is impossible
definitely to ascertain th object ot thla
consultation, but It 1 reported that tha
lawyers representing one party deslr that
a post-mortem examination be held befor
th bodies leave Franoe. . Mr. Oowdy haa
received no reply to hla cablegram ad
dressed to Washington.
Mr. Ellis, manager of Hotel Rita, whera
tha Fair had apartments at the tim ot
their death, has charge of the shipping ar
rangements. . When questioned today, he
was very reticent. He said the shipment
ot the bodies had been postponed because
definite Instructions for forwarding them
had not been received from tbe family cf
Mr. Fair.' He professed to know no other
reason why they. should not be moved,' and
said they would not be shipped Until auch
orders had been received, '
