Secretary Root declared that President
Roosevelt and Mr. Hearst stand as far as
the pole asunder.
"Listen," ho said, "to what President

amendment of Octolx-r II to clause I. plac
ing union funds lieyortd the reach of at
tachment, led to some lively scenes.
Members of the opposition twitted th
ministers with surrendering to the lshor j
party. Herbert H. Asquilh, chancellor of the !
exchequer, retorted tlinl the question at Is
sue was rot one of principle, hut of nietbrd.
He snld he saw nothing dlwhonorable In re

plained that It wus not in deference to
James Kelr Hardle. the hibor member, that
he had adopted his1 attitude toward the new
clause, hut rather leetuse there was an
enormous preponderance of fe-l'm In fsvor
of dulng thlnas In the simplest way.
After other members of the government
had npoken In a similar strain. Samuel Rob

HAVANA. Nov. l.-.Repnrts reewtved at
army headquarteis from the province" of
Santiago. Santa Clnra and Havana show
continuod unrest, although no Instances of
actual violence are mentioned. The coni
matvdant of the marines at Sanctl Spirttu
telegraphs that that town Is quiet, but that
the adjacent country Is unsafe owing: to
the presence of outlaws whom the rural
guard Is apparently unable to suppress.
Similar conditions prevail near 8agua La
Grande and Guantanamo, but they are with
out political significance.
T'non tho recommendation of the chief
surgeon, and for the purpose of Insuring
sanitary conditions In garrisoned towns,
the medical officer attached to each com
marnl has been ordered to act aa a member
of the municipal board of health. Governor
Magoon. acting upon the. recommendation
of the head of the Department of Agri

I HUSTON, Nov. J. In polities 1 speech
at republican rallies nt Severely end Halom
last nignt Attorney General William H.
Moody said that he was Investigating "tho
great and powerful coal and oil combina
tions," and that If he found evidence of
Illegal combination he would "proceed with
out regard to personal or political conse
quences." Mr. Moody said: ,
A few weeks ago Mi. itryau sxtri that
the trusts were the paramount Issue. I
am not quite sure that he is nol rlgnt. He
expressly congratulated President Roose
velt on the step he hsa taken on the en
forcement of antl-trunt laws.
We are In the midst of areat Industrial
activities and prosperity. Ureal evils are
arising out of this condition and President
Hoosevelt Is determined to remedy It. If a
remedy can be found.
The great industries aro no lonfrcr eon
ducted by the Individual, but by oigxnixed
capital. Organized capital In modern In
dustries la a necessity. The organlxation
of labnivand the organization of capital are
here to stay, but we have the right to ask
both that they should obey the laws of
Combinations Ueatroy Trade.
When the combination of wealth ob
tains great power, as It will. It destroys
the Individual Initiative, disturbs the nor
mal growth of commerce and sometimes
the government. I
yself have seen writ-;
ten on a sheet of paper the prica of killing
off of a competition. I have seen the cost
of driving out of business the hold Inde
pendent and the division among all the
confederates. It Is not wise that the peo
ple let any combination like this exist.
The attorney general continued:
Mr. Havemeyer, the sugar man, says
that the tariff Is the mother of trusts. It
t is not the tariff that is the mother of

the mother of trusts and of Its collateral
Mr. Moody, who we" speaking particu
larly for the re-election of Representative
Augustus P. Gardiner In the Sixth Massa
chusetts district, explained that he was
there at the expressed and earnest request
of President Roosevelt. He added:
'The president has made It manifest th.it
It la his earnest desire that the republican
nomlnesn should be elected and that the
next house of representatives should be tn
harmony with him."
After pointing out the results that would
follow the election of a democratic house
the attorney general aald:
"Can any sane man doubt, under such
circumstances, that the whole power of the
house of representatives would he exerted
to thtrart the . president In the measures
whlch he proponed and to render the rest
of hi" term of office entirely insignificant?"

Some Questions lor Colonel Bryan to Answer
William Jennings Bryan is now engaged in a campaign speaking tcur of Nebraska. While addressing the
voters at different points the taxpaylng citizens would like to have him answer a few questions that are specially
pertinent and timely:
Do you approve of the deal, which your brother-iu- law, T. S. Allen, chairman of the democratic state commit
tee, has made with the tax shirking railroads to line all, the democratic legislative candidates up against the taxa
tion of railway terminal for municipal purposes the saniv as other city property?
Are you tn favor of compelling the railroads to pay city taxes on their property within limitn of municipal
corporations, or ia favor of the continuance of the presont system by which they escape paying city ta:ces almost en
tirely? Does your declaration that no one connected directly or indirectly with privilege seeking corporation shoul l
have any place in the councils of the
resentative of the Missouri Pacific railroad and the use of partnership stationer' In sending out democratic cam
paign literature? (
Will you use your influence next winter to get the democrats in the legislature to join with the republicans
to force the railroads to pay their full share of city taxes, irrespective of any promises inuda to the railroads by your
brother-in-law. Chairman Allen? -

George L. Sholdon, republican candKlalo
for governor of Nebraska, addressed a
largo audience last night In Southslde
Turners' hall on the Issue of tho cam

to the subjects of equitable taxation and
railway nun legislation, and his arguments
on these topics were convincing, his hear
ers Rfialn and again expressing their ap
proval with cries of "that's so," "that s

tore tho democratic stock arguments to
shreds and made ridiculous their talk of
the enforcement of a maximum rate law
When he stoprwxl there were shouts of "go
on." and the enthusiasm he created did
not die with his departure from tho plat
form, for the audience was Just "s eager
to hear John L. Kennedy and also took
much Interest In the remarks of the leg
islative candidates, who talked afterwards.
"The railroads have always charged and
are charging whatever rate they like," said
Mr. Sheldon, "and the rntes In Nebraska
are higher than they ere In other states.
It costs 20 cents more to ship loo pounds of
freight from Omaha to Alliance than from

per cent higher In Nebraska than they are
