Boost for tntl-raa BUI.
The address of Governor William Larra
bee Saturday Is serving as a boost to the
anti-pass bill. The ex-governor did not
mince words In saying that the antt-pass
bill would be enacted. There is no doubt
but the aged statesman has a very strong
following in the state at this time. He was
the fore front of the granger movement
of many yerr rgo and the political battles
of today are described as nothing In com- '
parison with the times when Iarrabee
was the executive. The fact that Governor
Larrabce bos spoken against the pass sys
tem is sufficient for many people.
Work for Tsberralosla Hospital.
Of greater effect than this advocacy of
the anti-pass hill was the statements of
Governor Irrabee in favor of the tuler
ciilosis hospital. It lias been conceded that
the tuberculosis hospital bad a very small
chance at this session because of the lim
ited funds at this time available for legisla
tive r. ppropriatlons. Governor Larrabee
urged the necessity of the hospital so ear
nestlv upon the legislature that considerable
more attention will be given to the matter
than was at first expected. It Is more than
likely that at least sufficient ground will be
purchased now, leaving to future legisla
tures the business of providing buildings,
but if the ground is once purchased for the
purpose, the buildings will be erected be
yond doubt.

llra'i Letter.
Tiie long and short of the above matter
la that the packers are indicted at Chicago
for making a success of a legitimate busi
ness. The effect will be. and already la.
first, to hamper their operation and hurt
the market for both beef and cattle, and,
second, to make Indictment and statutory
crime respectable in this country with ail
the long train of evil incident to such re
spectability. The big packers may not have been al
ways wise in what they have said or did
not say. They, of course, have the ordi
nary human limitations, including selfish-
ness, especially of men who have lived
and striven Intensely fur the accomplish
ment of a single material purpose, but I
submit that it is utterly impossible to con
duct a Urge business, except as they have
done It. with regard to competitors. Large
Interests cannot afford to fight each other
and they cannot be made to do so by statu-
tory enactment. They may be destroyed.
convicted, fined. Imprisoned and humiliated
in every way that can be devised by leguv
latlve Ingenuity, and the effect would only
be as above stated, to make such things
respectable. ,
To illustrate: Suppose a law were passed
(we believe there is such a law) making
It a crime for railways to agree on a rate
of transportation from Kansas City to St.
Iouis. Does any one suppose that the
four independent lines connecting the two
cities would not have an understanding.
cept one, as on Independent property, and
the war would be ended by the foolish de
struction of the combatants rather than by
the wisdom of peace; but the war mould
be ended. The big packers sell meat, the
railroads sell transportation; that is the
only difference.
There have been more foolish, incendiary
and even revolutionary things said and
written on the beef combine lately than on
any other one subject. The packers have
been lampooned, basted, harpooned, rar-
tooned and pilloried, even by respectable
and otherwise sane people. The only ex
planation 1 can think r.f is that the busl
ness deals with the concerns of the atom
ach, a very sensitive and irritating avenue
of feeling with men In all the various
avocations of life.
The government, under pressure, lnstiiu
ted a thorough investigation. It covered
a period of two years. All the financial
and cerebral resources of the government
were drawn upon to conduct this Investi
gation. The result has been published
broadcast, and its correctness has never
been successfully disputed. The chit of
the report was published In these columns.
It Is: First, that the packers' profits are
a small percentage; second, that 'heir
total operations cover only a minority per
centage of the entire industry. The original
"big four" has been Increased to "big
six." but there are still over W0 concerns
in business, but not under Indictment. Any
one with the slightest knowledge of the
various live stock market operations can
not fall to be impressed with the large
amount of Independent buying. The busi
ness is open to the world, and is par
ticipated In by almost the whole world
when the temperature 1 right. The pack
ers only advantage is the. very large capi
tal' and experience and ingenuity required.
With these they have "in twenty years
revolutionized the Industry;, they have
educated consumption and created demand.
This is conspicuously Illustrated by what
has happened in the sheep markets In re
cent years.
The restraining of rebates and special ad
vantages are proper subjects of legisla
tion. Violation of such laws should be
summarily dealt with. But the packers are
under indictment for doing exactly what
the railway people are fined for not doing.
One principle is right and Just; the other
, the reverse. Considering the fight that has
1 b'n made on the packers from the first,
, originally by local slaughterers, next by
' railroads, next by local legislation, as city
ordinances, nert by foreign governments.
M per cent cattle marketing has increased
600 per cent. These days occasionally nearly
i ln ,n Pl-nltude of capital, ability and
lvy country at large. Given an
even chance and there will be nin e
participants In the race for any good thing,
backed up by capital and experience to
attain it. Tha function of the government
ends with giving even' citizen sn even
chance-s square deal. Live stock letter of

ing the present session. The other bills are
much alike, but Mr. Kennedy's bill makes
the establishment and operation of postal
savings banks ln any particular state de
pend upon the action of the legislature of
that state. In other words, the states may
have the system or not. Just as they please.
This Idea Is entirely new. No saving, bank
bill heretofore Introduced has had that fea
ture. It Is Intended to minimise opposition
to the measure. The establishment of pos
tsl savings banks Is opposed by such states
as New-York. Massachusetts and other New
England states having strong, stable sav
ings banks. Speaking generally, the west
wants postal savings banks, while tho east
does not. It Is hoped that the eastern states
may withdraw their opposition to the Ken
nedy bill, because It will not affect them
without their consent. Then, again, the
provision referred to may allay some op
position from the southern states, which
insist upon state rights.
Another objection usually made to postal
savings banks Is that the financial condi
tion, of the country would be disturbed by
their establishment. This bill contemplates
their gradual establishment as the states
declare for them, s i that deposits would not
accumulate more rapldiy than provision
could be made for their use.
Another feature ol the bill is that the sur
plus funds not Invested shall be distributed
equitably among the states from which the
deposits come. This would obviate an ob
jection heretofore made in the west that
the system would centralize the surplus
funds ln the east.
The measure, which Is entitled "A bill
to provide for the gradual establishment
of a postal savings bank system in t'.ie
I'nlted States and to regulate the same,"
leads as follow.:
Be it enacted bv the senate ami honao
of representatives of the fnited States of
America assembled. That a system of
postal savings banks shall be established
in the I'nlted States under th d'-e"!!o:i
and supervision of the postmaster general

No person shall seek to avoid the pro
visions of this section by depositing his
money In the name of some otner person
to obtain a higher rate of interest, ln
any and ail such cases the postmaster gen
eral may refuse to pay any interest on
any deposit made by one person in the
name of another. The postmaster general
or any postmaster or otner person receiv
ing deposits may at aiy time require any
depositor to make a written statement, de
claring on oath or affirmation that any and
all moneys deposited in hi. name belong

And a True Story of How the Vegetable Compound
Had Its Birth and How the "Panic of '73" Caused
it to be Offered for Public Sale in Drug Stores.
Th!s remarka V woman, whose
tnaidrn name was Esbrs. was born in
Lynn. Mtu., February Vth, 1819, com
ing' from a pood old Quaker family.
For some years she taught school, and
became known as a woman of an alert
and inrestig-atin? mind, an earnest
seeker after knowledge, and above
all, possessed of a wonderfully sympa
thetic nature.
In 1S43 she married Isaac Plnkham.
a builder and real estate operator, and
their early married life was marked by
prosperity and happiness. They had
four children, three sous and m
In those prood old fashioned days It
was common for mothers to make
their own home medicines from roots
and herbs, nature's own remedies
calling in a physician only in specially
nrp-ent cases. By tradition and ex
perience many of them pained a won
derful knowledge of the curative prop
erties of the various roots and herbs.
Mrs. Pinkham took a great interest
in the studT of roots and herbs, their
characteristics and power over disease
She maintained that jnst ss nature so
bountifully provides in the harvest
fields Dd orchards vegetable foods of
all kinds; so, if we but take the pains
to find them, in the roots and herbs
of the field there are remedies ex
pressly designed to cure the various
ills and weaknesses ol the body, and
It was her pleasure to search these out.
and prepare simple and effective medi
cincs for her own family and friends.
Chief of these was a rare combina
tion of the choicest medicinal roots
and herbs found best adapted for the
cure of the ills and weaknesses pecu
liar to the female sex, and LydiaE. Pink-
ham's friends and neighbors learned
that her compound relieved and cured
and it became quite popular among
All this bo far was done freely, with
out money and without price, as i
labor of love.
But in 1873 the financial crisis struck
Lynn. Its 'ength and severity were too
much for the large real estate interests
of the Pinkham family, aa this class
of ' business suffered most from
fearful depression, so when theCenten
Dial year dawned it found their prop
erty swept awav. Some other source
of income had to be found.
At th s point Lydia E. Pinkham'

argued that the medicine which was
so good for their woman friends and
neighbors was equally good for th
women of the whole world.
The Pickhams had no money, and
little credit. Their first laboratory
was the kitchen, where roots and
herbs were steeped on the stove,
gradually filling- a gross of bottles.
Then came the question of selling
it, for always before they bad given
it away freely. They hired ft job
printer to run off some pamphlets
setting forth the merits of the medi
cine, now called Lydia E. Pink nam's
Vegetable Compound, and these were
distributed by the Pinkham son. In
lie ton, Jsew iork, ana Brooklyn.
The wonderful curative properties of
the medicine were, to m great extent,
self advertising, for whoever used i
recommended it to others, and the de
mand gradually Increased.
ln 1877, bT combined efforts the fam

now the mother of a large family, took
