Judg Peter 8. Qroaacup of Chicago addreeaed an audience of 2,000 people at the Grand opera house thl evening- on "The Control of Corporatlone." The add reus wan given under the auspices "f the Commercial club and the faculty of Wittenberg college, of which Judge Groarcup la a graduate. He mild In purt : . . I have n friend up the atate who, the morning of every election day, votea his partv ticket and votea It with a much publicity aa the laws permit. -hut in the evening Witlts for -the return, -tile-hert full ol the wlHh that the' other party has won. There are many mert In public life today who have Just that kind ft fealty to the president and hia policies. My respect for him la not -of that kind. No other In dividual career In recent year haa ao con spicuously broken Into a public atmosphere That had been stagnant, clearing it up a an electrical atorm cleara up a sultry sum mer aky. In the character of a great moral force, I look upon Mr. Roosevelt aa one of the great figure of the times In which we live. To no other individual haa been given ao great an opportunity to lay anew tha foundations on which our coun try's future peace and prosperity must rent; to the extent that he la effectively ulng tha. opportunity getting results out of the popular awnkenlng I follow him aa my lender. But, like pvcry great man In the crisis of a great cBreer, the president standi now at a point where it will bo speedily determined whether foundations that go deen enough to sustain the new great Industrial life on which America ha entered are to tie Hid by him. leaving It to his successors to carry un the aupcr structure, or wlnther he la to go off the stage the Brent fvnml but an evangel i.nly, of the future th it awaits us. , Where lliumrr l.lea. The danger that threaten him la the old, old danger thut lurks In every attempt to tlo too many things at once and at the same time. The American people do but one thing at a time. And the one great thing that la upon this generation of Arner. 'leans to settle to so settle that it will stay act'led la the ways and means through which the property and the prosperity of the country. Indisputably great, and grow ing greater every day, shall be put on their the property f work Is aocom plished, or fairly on Its way toward ac. comnllshment. the obligation of this gen eration of Americans will have been dis charged. But that great Work will never bo put on Its way to accomplishment by anything less than, an earnest. orgunlaert popular movement, that denying to Itself everything elae, concentrates .Itself upon a corporation reform, that like the great German corporation reform of thirty years ago, will go to the bottom of the wrong. No more so-called federal license plan will fulfill that end; the reform to bring back the people of the country into the ownership and control of the property of the country must not rest upon n corpora. t!on policy as It exlata today, changed In no particular except that the corporations are to be subjected to a little additional scrutiny nt Washington. The mere prosecution of corporations thnt are disobeying the law, as the law exists today, will not fulfill that end; wtmethlng more must te done witn tne corporation than t put It on the docket of the crim inal courts. All the power the nation needs the nation now has. What is wanted la not more power; what Is wanted Is a clearer vision that at the bottom of the people's unrest Ilea thla fact: That under conditions, as they exist today,- the people at larga arc practically denied admission Into the great prosperity Inheritance; that all around them the genius and Industry of thla generation Is building a fact that fermenta and will continue to ferment and will cause the whole body politic to ferment until it Is removed.

Dec. il.-R, Q. Dun & Co s. Weekly Review of Trade tomorrow will aay: Weather conditions accelerate distribution of seasonable merchandise at reiall. but I Increased traffic difficulties, freight block- ! dea and ahortage of motive power not only retard business, but threaten serious results at some western points, nouoajr trade has equalled sanguine expectation, yet this large volume haa not Inlet fered With the brisk demand for at ft pie articles, which deplete stocks to auch an extent that wholesale trade experiences unusual activ ity for the season. The only noteworthy decrease In comparison with activities a year ago appears In building permits.. Most Industrial work Is .maintained at the maxi mum, mills and lactone naving bo ninny contracts for next yer'e delivery that In ventories receive little attention. Scarcely any change Is recorded In prices of Iron, the market, having developed a Utile seasonable quietness, although fur nace constantly receive new orders, and in some eastern markets the week has brought out contract for delivery in the closing months of IM. In the rails the mills report about two thirds of next year s total output already sold. Steadiness in quotations and tha avoidance of any Inflation are now the factors that will contribute moat largely to continued activity. In the primary market for textile goods the event of greiteat interest la the strengtn of cotton and the practical Impossibility of securing prompt dellverle from manu facturers. W hile the demands have dimin ished somewhat in comparison with the preesure that haa been noticed for soma weeks, there 1 still a steady inquiry, and selling age,nts are utterly unable to arrange shipments as requested. There Is little disposition to dispute quotations as the goods can be aecured. although much busi ness has been transacted and the question Is raised as to how much speculative buying has occurred. There Is no export trade, aside from regular movement to South America and the Island markets, although Inquiries from China are reported on special lines. The opening of the woolen goods aeason ha been aufflclently Irregular to make It difficult to determine the trend of demand. Much business has been done in staple dress goods for delivery next full at last year's prices. Staple farm products have fluctuated within narrow limits, no development of Importance being reported. W heat had the support of unfavorable crop new from Russia, but light grinding by domestic mills prevented any material Improvement and there was no speculative activity. -.labilities of commercial failures thus far reported for December smounted to tfi,7l.fcJ7, of which S3,4:t4.K were lu manu facturing. 12.118.244 m trading and S1;jO,7&3 In other commercial lines.

NOT AS OLD AS IT LOOKED Cranium of an Ancient Nebraakan Fxrltea In veattgatlon and Some Obaervatlona. The discovery of a human skull on a hill side above Florence, Neb., a few months ego, and the claim set up by the discoverers that it was a relic of an ancient race, ex cited considerable interest in anthropolog ical circles and furnished a text for a paper by Henry Fairfield Osborn In the January number of the Century Magaxine. Mr. Os born dlacuaaea and compares various type of ancient man, paleolithic, neanderthal and neolithic, and concludes that the Nebraska specimen has a large stock of centuries to Its credit. "The comparisons which we are able to make," saya the writer, "now prove that this cranium is of a more recent type by far than that of the neanderthal man. It may prove to be of more recent type even than that typified by the early neolithic man of Europe. Even If not of great an tiquity it Is certainly of very primitive type, and tends to Increase rather than di minish the probability of the early advent of man In America." OMAHA.

Possibly the only Christmas story appearing in any magazine at Christmas time is the characteristic Myra Kelly story, "A Perjured Santa Claus." This question of whether or not there is a real Santa Claus gets a new angle in the story of the little boy who tried to have Santa Claus brought before the police magistrate for perjury. One of the contributions which will be vitally interesting will be the care ful account of "The Jewish Invasion," by Burton JHendrick, in which is de scribed the advent of the Jew in our country and the methods by which he obtains such eminence in commerce, literature, art or whatever he sets his hand to do. Other stories, papers and many g;ood picture make the January McClnre'a a epoch-marker. AU uawa-etattda, 1Q caata. $1.00 a year S. S.
