the United States circuit court In the

must be settled on a permanent basis.
Philadelphia Record: Wall street com

not depend upon Illegality, In spite of the
timid gentlemen who are telegraphing tha
president to please stop enforcing the laws

Chicago Tribune: The decision of the
circuit court of appeals, which It Is gen
erally believed will not be reversed by the
supreme court, is no revolutionary, de
structive decision. It enunciates no novel,
startling principles. It injures no legiti
mate Interest. It affects In no way the
prosperity of the country. It Is a menace
only to those who wish to engage In the Il
legitimate industry of reckless promotion
and mad expansion. They are the persons
who should chiefly take the decision to
heart. It notifies them that there are legal
restrictions they must respect.

WHAT THE) TRAFFIC WILL BEAR.
Policy of the' Telephone Compear Re.
fleeted lav Ita Report.
New York limes.
The annual report of the American Tele
phone and Telegraph company contains
some figures which will be read with Inter
est. This is the parent company of the
Bell system. In 1902 It bad a gross revenue
of flS,277,457 and gross expenses, Including
Interests and taxee, ot $5,442,185. Th.
amount added during the year to construc
tion and real estate by all the constituent
companies was $37,336,600. On the 1st of
January; 1903, It bad In use 2,443,750 miles
ot wire, representing an increase during
twelve months ot 714,731 miles. Of Its wire
system 1,S28,85 miles were under ground
at the beginning or the present year. The
number of exchange connectlona made dally
In 1902 waa estimated at 9,821,151, which
would give the number for the year at ap
proximately 8,000,000,000. For purposes of
extension of plant the capital was Increased
during the year from (150,000,000 to $250,-000,000.
It would be difficult to Imagine a business
statement making a more satisfactory
showing than thla. It Indicates an enor
moua and rapid growth of the telephone
business, of which the fortunate proprie
tors are taking full advantage by charging
"what the trafflo will bear." The inde
pendent telephone Interests claim a growth
nearly aa rapid and quite aa permanent as
that of the American. They are making
their competition felt on a legitimate basis
of fair chargea predicated oa the cost of
service. The demand for the telephone Is
growing so rapidly that there appeara to be
room enough for all systems, ana tne fore
cast of business growth for the present
year Is satisfactory to all In Interest
Through competition charges are being
slowly, very slowly, adjusted o the costs
of the service. That there Is .till a con
siderable margin for reduction may b.
Judged trom a comparison ot earnings and
expenses of tha American company. Th.
automatlo system, which has successfully
met the test in small exchanges, and la
now to b. applied on a much larger seal.,
promises economies in operating expenses
which It Is to b. hoped will b. shared with
th. subscribers. Th. telephone service Is
the one business In which we ar. con
fronted with th. anomaly that, according
to th. authorities, it can b. don. more
cheaply on a small than oa a large scale,

H ATI HE'S WAYS.
Just off the hard and dusty highway
Are bubbling brooks and shaded byways.
The park, all fresh and verdure-clad.
Give, welcome to the gay or sad.
Here life In fairest forme Is springing.
Where waters flow and birds are singing;
In art and nature Joined appear
Good wlldness and good culture here.
In wooded dells the vines are creeping.
To catch the pleasant sunlight peeping,
And winding paths lead through the wood
To bowered seat, in quietude.
Beneath broad trees the lawns wait gleam
For laughing child or lover's dreaming.
The spongy turf In glosey green
A couch beside the cool ravin.
For sick ones there's no bottle-cursing
In Mother Nature's matchless nursing;
Broad lap and rounded bottom warm.
With all the charms of comely form.
Her vital currents freelv flowing-.
There's health and happiness In knowing.
The child or beauty ana or grace
Lies In her arms and reads tier face.
No poison tempts to baneful drinking.
No muddy mixture drugs his thinking;
For him refreshing waters flow
From vein, that reach the mountain snow.
On htm la rich maternal blessing.
With hearty kiss and soft caressing;
For nappy mnoti, or strain or griec,
Are flute or bird, ana signing tear.
There's svmDa4hv. the heart relieving.
There's nurture true and no deceiving;
There's tickling sport of tempered air.
That steals away th. sting of car..
There's sleep amid the dancing shadows,
In air that trades with fields and meadows.
And gathers by exchange most fair
A freight of floral perfumes there.
There's confidence, and no concealing.
And never end. th. kind reveallna.
That yield, to yearning soul and sense
A large, uncounted recompense.
