II is doubtful If even that "Phila
delphia lawyer." whose proverbial
ability "for unraveling tangled prob
lems has become h. classic, could pro
duce a logical and harmonious ca-.te
from the arguments tiiat are being
offered by railroad managers in op
posing the enforcement of legislation
enacted by the different states looking
to tne regulation of railway passenger
and freight rates. The unbiased lay
man Is forced to conclude either that
the railway managers have gof their
wires crossed or that railway rales,
like General Hancock's tariff, it a local
Issue. When the Nebraska legislature
was considering the 2-cent faro bill
the railway representatives made the
most of opposition to it on the ground
that much of the state is sparsely set
tled and the proposed rate would not
be compensatory. The argument was
used with home effectiveness and, It
Is understood", is now held In abeyance
until a trial of the new rates has been
made. If the rate does not prove
compensatory the case will be taken
Into thrt tonrta for the purpose of test
ing tho validity of the 2-ceut rate law.
The argument used by the railroads
In Nebraska has been reversed In
Pennsylvania, where the Reading com
pany has Just announced an Increase
In passenger rates on the ground that
the business offered under the reduced
rate Is causing too heavy a tax on the
company's transportation facilities,
and that some action la necessary to
effect a better adjustment between the
company's revenues and the disburse
ments for train accommodations. The
order Increasing the price of tickets to
commuters affects a good many thou
sand people in the Philadelphia sec
tion, who work in the city and live in
suburbs. In his formal announce
ment President Baer of the Reading
admits that the low rates, which were
put Into effect to meet the competition
of the trolley lines, have helped Im
mensely to build up suburban commu
nities and this upbuilding has added
enormously to the railroad revenues,
but that this liberal policy must now
be reversed, apparently on the theory
that even a railroad may have too
much of a good thing. Baer's state
ment Is strong testimony In support
of the claim of the reduced fare advo
cates that reduction In rates always
begets more traffic and adds profit to
railroad operation.
Another complication Is added to
the situation by a report from Chicago
to the effect that thousands of railroad
men In the west are to be thrown out
of work In a few weeks because of the
inability of railway managers to se
cure funda for the prosecution of
needed extensions and Improvements.
This Is charged,' by the railway man
agers, to the result of "hostile legis
lation" by the' states, which has
"frightened investors away from rail
way securities." This has produced
an anomalous state of affairs. At a
time when ! the 'country Is prospering
as never before,- when tb only .obsta
cle to further advancement Is the lack
of adequate ' railway facilities, when
the railway managers are anxious to
carry out comprehensive plans for the
Improvement of the transportation
systems, the money markets are ap
parently closed against them. ' The
country has the business to offer at
rates which are admitted to be profit
able and enough business Is In sight
to keep the railroads busy for several
years. Reports of April earnings show
liberal increases In every Important
railroad In the country, and all condi
tions ase apparently ripe for a con
tinuation of prosperous business in the
transportation line for years to come.
This would be sufficient showing to
command unlimited capital for invest
ment In any business and the failure
of Investors to respond to such induce
ment offered In railway securities
mast be traced to the railway man
ager and not to the public, which
stands ready with Its contribution of
patronage sufficient to Insure profit
able return on railway investments.-
The hostile sentiment, or the sus
picion, which causes the withholding
of money from investment In railway
securities Is due solely to the expos
ures that have been made of the man
ner In which railway Investments have
been manipulated In the past, to the
enrichment of the manipulators and
at the expenteof the stockholders and
patrons. Mr. Harrlman, Mr. Fish and
other prominent railway magnates
have admitted the err.or of past poli
cies In railway management and have
promised reforms. When the reforms
ae Inaugurated, tlnild capital will
cheerfully sok Investment in railway
securities and save railway managers
the necessity of making new and con
flicting explanations as they are now
doing to meet conditions In different
localities. .
Announcement coine from Washing
ton that the Department ot Ju:ilce is
preparing to make a. general move
ment against the Standard Oil com
pany, under the provisions of the now
railway , rate law which makes pipe
lines common carriers. The Standard
has already had more than Its share
of litigation, both in slate, and federal
courts, In the warfare that has been
waged In the last few years looking
to the extermination of the trust pest.
Texas has been at battle with the Oil
trust for several years. Kansas has
protected all the markets of the state
from the exactions of the Standard
Oil company. Ohio and Pennsylvania
courta have made Important decisions
against the trust. Missouri' ouster
proceedings have been sustained in the
preliminary proceedings. The com
pany ha beeu found KuUty in the fed
eral court in Chicago ou 1.4 00 counts
and in.ulo aui'.rt to tlnt that may

been used to compel the trust to ob- mously adopted a resolution memor
I serve fair relations with dealers and . iaiiznK congress to remove the tariff
consumers in tne cirrerent stAtes. nut
the new proceedings promises to be
more general In scope and is designed
to finally end the monopoly of the
concern and stop Jts disregard and
violations of the law,.
Officials of tho Department of Jus-
tlce have long felt that the Standard s pistols, Winchesters. broadswords,
monopoly of the pipe line Industry j bowle knives or bare fists. There's al
was Its most vulnerable point of at- ways something doing in Colorado
tack, but action has been deferred be
cause of the question ot the sufficiency
of the Sherman anti-trust law to meet
the requirements of the contemplated
I roaecution. The railway rate bill's
provision defining the pipe line as a
common carrier mnkes the Way clear
for the proposed action. The report
of Herbert Knox Smith, commissioner
of corporations, shows that -while the
Standard produces but one-sixth of
the crude petroleum of the nation, its
ownership or control of 98 per cent
of the pipe lines In the oil fields gives
It an absolute monopoly of the trans
portation of petroleum, equivalent, to
actual ownership of practically every
oil well fn the country. The blow at
the Standard's pipe line control prom
ises to be the final and most effective
method of breaking the power of this
ruthless monopoly.
A peculiar, and in some ways re
markable, condition of affairs Is pre
sented by the attitude ot the Kansas
Railway commission. That body after
solemn' deliberation has determined
that if the Nebraska statute is upheld
It will make an order establishing the
2-cent passenger fare In Kansas. The
astounding feature of this is that Kan
sas has hesitated at all, waiting to see
the probable effect of reform legisla
tion In another state before adopting
In the past Kansas has been In the
van, or a little bit ahead of the van,
In the matter of experimental legisla
tion. Nebraska has suffered much In
reputation by reason of some efforts
made to Institute needed changes In
practice In the state, but has never as
sumed such radical attitude as ha
characterized Kansas. It must, there
fore, appeal to the casual observer as
in some degree humorous that Kansas
should now bex willing and content to
follow Nebraska's lead along the path
which appears so safe.
One of two things must be true:
Either Kansas has determined to fol
low the advice of William Allen White,
and "raise less hell and more corn,"
or the hold of the Santa Fe on the
official machinery of the Sunflower
state Is still sufficiently firm to be po

bunco ordinance tor dollar gas. .The
contract existing between the gas com
pany of the city of Omaha is slowly
being recognized by the democrats as
ot some force and effect. Dollar gas
under proper conditions Is a consum"
mation devoutly to be wished, but dol
lar gas at the expense of a repudiated
contract Is not likely to be obtained,
nor would It be creditable to the city
In any degree If It were.
The hollowness of the democratic
promise and the sham of its perfor
mance Is rapidly becoming apparent
to all men. The responsibility of plat
form pledges Is being borne home to
them, and the difficulty In the way of
redemption Is now. very plain.

It seems strange, a most mysterious.
Inexplicable decree of Trovldence that or
dained the death by the assassin's hand
of three such men as Lincoln, Garfield and
McKlnley, each bo unoffending, so filled
with the love of human kind, bo gracious
and generous.
Of the three, McKlnley waa least ag
gressive. Lincoln lived In deadly times,
and Garfleld'a very Intellectuality raised up
both enemies and enmities. Qurfleld, lova
ble as he was, had a rough side to him.
and Lincoln, big of heart and of brain,
was outwardly, even as a gnarled oak.
McKlnley lived a .primitive Christian man.
He emulated St. Paul In the desire to bo
all things to all men. It gave him pleasure
to give pleasure; It caused him pain to In
flict pain. No man ever grew a fast as he
in the executive office, both in mental
stature and in breadth.

Immense responsibilities dlescended upon
him. War, which he had religiously op
posed, and for which the country was Ill
prepared, was suddenly thrust upon him.

the care .of a nurse for a child none other

this in those who person Vly knew and
loved them which gave to Inc awful final
ity at Buffalo an added and Inexpressible
poignancy of grief.
The people of the south especially will
ever hold the memory of William McKlnley
deep in the heart of their hearts. He It
was to whom It waa given to complete the
aublime Intention of Lincoln with respect
to the disunited sections of the union. He
was quick to see the meaning and the op
portunity of the Spanish war. The last,
eternal treaty of peace between the north
and the south waa written by tha pen
that signed the commission as generals

man and patriot perform an act greater In

William McKlnley when he restored thbso

which sails from San Francisco for tho
Philippines on June 6. It was recently dis
covered that all the accommodations on the
transport had been assigned and that there
was little or no room fur the families of
some eleven army surgeons who Were un
expectedly ordered to duty as a relief of
medical ufllcers In the Philippines. Tho
situation was relieved by transferring to

The contract prices for army animals
have Increased materially this year, as
compared with the previous contracts.
Cavalry horses have Increased In cost from
$142 to $176. and artillery horses show alout
the same percentage of Increase, costing
$220. Mules cost about the same as last
year, when the prices were regarded as
exceptionally high about $190. Added to
this condition Is the Increase In the cost
of forage, with every prospect, according
to the reports of the western climate and
the prophecies of the farmers, that this
year's supply will be limited and expen
sive. This situation has its Inevitable ef
fect upon the available appropriations for
army animals and their sustenance, and
those In charge of that feature are ex
pressing some doubt whether the funds at
the disposal of the army quartermasters
for this purpose will meet all the demands
upon It.
The quartermaster general of the army
has sent nut Instructions for estimates
from tha various departments in order to
determine the total cost of furnlshlnfr of
ficers' quarters with heavy furniture, as
authorised by the latest army appropria
tion act. All but three of the departments
have Bubmltted the estimates, and It. la too
early to form any Idea of the amount of
money which will be required to carry
out this acceptable provision. It Is known,
of course, that It will be Impossible to
equip all the quarters with the entire outfit
of heavf furniture contemplated for ulti
mate, installation, but aa aoon aa It is de
termined Just how much money can be
spared for expenditure .in . tills direction
during the next fiscal year the quarter
master general will purchase that por
tion of the complete outfit for all the quar
ters. It has been decided that It Is better
to equip the quarters by degrees year by
year and have an equality In the flttlng
out, rather than fully equip some of the
quarters and have a partial Installation or
no equipment at all at other places. Under
the arrangement, It la likely that some of
the minor posts will be omitted from this
year's provision. '
Instructions have been sent to the army
paymasters in their disbursements to en
listed men of the retired list of the army
ao that the latter on the payment on June
1 may receive the additional allowance of
$8.25 authorized under the law of March
3. To these enlisted men will now be paid.
In addition to the amount for April and
May, the $6.04 or the fractional payment
which was made for the twenty-nlno days
In March after the enactment of the law
and which amount waa deducted from tire
payment of May 1, pending the decision of
the comptroller that the .law applied to
those who were retired prior to the date
of the act. In this connection, It Is of in
terest to know that the War department
will make no change In computing length
of aervlce towards retirement bo far as
double time Is concerned. The decision
of the acting Judge advocate general of
the army In this respect has already been
noted In these columns. Of course, under
the terms of the law, service In the army,
navy and marine corps may hereafter be
counted In reckoning the period for retire
ment. The nine candidates from the enlisted
force of the army who passed the examina
tion for appointment as second lieutenant
of artillery will probably receive their com
missions early In July, but not until there
have been commissioned the lieutenants of
infantry and cavalry who are being ex
amined with a View to transfer ' to the
grade of first lieutenant of artillery. Even
this delay In the appointment of the army
candidates will give them an advuntniee
over tholr associates who took tho exami
nation at the same time at Fort Leaven
worth and who were some weeks ago ap
pointed second lieutenants of Infantry and
cavalry. Aa soon as the qualified can
didates have been appointed second lieu
tenants of artillery they will be eligible
to promotion to the next higher grade, one
of them g'olng Into the field artillery. It
has not yet been decided whether they will
be sent to the artillery school at fort Mon
roe, but It Is expected that all of them are
employing the time since their examina
tion at Fort Leavenworth In preparing for
examination for promotion, which will he
held shortly after their appointment to the
grade of second lieutenant.

Out yonder In the moonlight, wherein God's
' acre lies.
Go angels walking to and fro, singing
their lullabys.
Their radiant wings are folded and thelr
eyes are bended low.
Ab they sing among tho beds whereon tha
flowers delight to grow
"Bleep. O sleen!
The Shepherd loveth his sheep.
Fast speedeth the night away;
Soon Cometh the glorious day;
Sleep, weary ones, while ye may-
Bleep. O sleep:
The flowers within God's acre see that falj
and wondrous slKht,
And hear the angels singing to the sleepers
through the night,
And lo! throughout the hours of day those
gentle flowers prolong
The music of the angels In that tender
slumber song
"Sleep. O slepp!
The Shepherd loveth his sheep;
He that guardeth his flock the best
Hath folded them to his loving breast
So sleep ye now and take your rest
Sleep, O sleep!"
From angels and from flower the yeara
have lenrned that soothing song.
And with its heavenly music speed the days
and nights along.
So through all time, when flight the Shep
herd's vigils glorify,
God's acre slumbereth in the grace of that
sweet lullaby
"Sleep, O sleep!
The Shepherd loveth his sheep.
Fast speedeth the night away;
Soon cometh the glorloua day;
Sleep, weary one, while ve may
Sleep, O sleep!"
