Chanjinfr the Sherman Law.
Tlio late sr-nator (irorRe ('. Veet
of Mipfouri sokf with prophetic
wlptlom vtheu In debate on the bill
which Is now the Sherman anti-trust
Intv, in the senate in lSStn, he said:

The law Is apparently still In the
crurible. .Many plans for revision,
amendment or complete repeal are
pendftijt. Atnl yet It Is not snfe to
do nwBy with it or to amend It too
freely until wo havo reasonable as
surance of the superior effectiveness
of another. The president seems to be
on the fafent ground In opposing
change unless it be toward a federal
Incorporation law that will enable in
terstate Institutions to operate under
Itlg business complains that it can
not tell under the present law when
It Is doing wrong and In the next
breath it protests agalm;l failure to
discriminate, In criticism of vested in
terests, between tho good and the
bad, those that observe legr.l re
quirements nnd those that Ignore
them. In the light of sueh Inconsist
ency It is no wonder President. Taft
rays he has no sympathy v.ith tho
plea that the law's ;iniblgulty pre
vents a corporation from knowing
when It Is doing rlsht or wrong.
The proposed amendments to the
.Sherman net. made public by Con
gressman Henry of Texas reveal the
purpose of tho democrats to play to
the galleries in the com(ng session of
congress. They are evidently pre
pared to magnify their criminal
clause plan nnd their plan for ex
empting labor organization from
the classification of trusts, although
there is nothing new In either pro
posal. The present Sherman low con
tains u criminal clause, as everybody
knows, providing a fine of not to ex
ceed $5,000 or Imprisonment not ex
ceeding one year, or both. The dem
ocratic bill would double the fine and
Inereaeo the Imprisonment to from
two to ten years. This and other
provisions are strikingly similar to n
substitute amendment to the original
Sherman bill Introduced by another
Texan. Senator Reagan, and after
much fierce debating, adopted by the
senate In 1890. But when Senator
Hoar's bill was substituted In toto
for the Sherman bill this provision
gave way to the. ono now in tho law.
One thing upon which there is no
loom for a difference of opinion la
that tho country demands a law that
will insure fair dealing and prevent
restraint of trade. The president
voices this sentiment when he Bays
that if trusts continue in business it
must be within tho lines of the law.-
Governor Mann and the Beattle Case
In refusing to interpose executive
clemency of any kind between young
Ueattle, the wife murderer, and tho
electric chair, Governor Mann or Vir
ginia takes tho position that after
the accused had had full advantage
of his constitutional right to a fair
ai-d Impartial trial by Jury and the
cane has gone to the appellato courts
without changing the verdict, It Is
not his province to stand lu the way
of tho law'a execution. The gov
ernor said, responding to an appeal
for his Interference:
I followed tills caae durinir th 'rii
snd as Ha horrlblo facta were developed
regretted that a crime so cruel anil ma
lleloun uliould have occurred within the
confines ef this state. In tlx decision of
every quentlon which was preatnted to
the able and Impartial Judge who presided
at the trial he was careful to give tho
iwneiit or every reanoimble doubt to the
prisoner, 'flint ha did not err in
In the refusal of the aupreme court of
spirals to gru.nl a writ of error.
Impressing his belief In the wanton
guilt of the condemned man, the gov
To grunt a rtaplta, In so plain a esse
would lie to aet a precedent, would be to
tcuipoiuo with the luw and to enrourase
appeals to the aupreme court with the
aolo pmpose of ashling time. I believe
the iM-at way to prevent audi rrtmea ua
this la to punish them adequately, cer
tainly and NpeedJly. Therefore Hut Judg
ment of the circuit court of Chesterfield
will be tarrlrd Into effect without Inter
ference from me.
This may not comport with that
maudlin hereey which preaches that
"nil punishment Is wrong and should
bu abolished." but It accords with the
tenets of common sense and, If more
generally practiced by those In au
thority, would, wo believe,, have a
vital Influence toward deterring
crime. Crime is tragic because of
Us consequences, but the tragedy Is
magnified where tho law 1b com
promised. Governor Mann rightly
emphasizes that he as the agent of
the law owes inoro to society as a
whole than he does to one degenerate
member of society.
Unearned Public Salaries.
Stuto Auditor liurtou refuses to
pass the claims presented for salary
by the state bank examiners ap
pointed by Governor Shallenberger,
who were kept out of their Jobs by
the litigation over, the deposit guar
anty law, on tho ground that they
performed no service, and are enti
tled to no pay. The auditor Is un
questionably right from the stand
point of equity, but we are not so
sure that he la right on the point of
law. Omaha has been mulcted sev
eral times for salaries of policemen
and firemen, Vho did no work, be
cause their shrewd lawyers found
technical defects In the methods em
ployed for discharging' or laying
them off. The fs t that a man has
not earned the money does not deter
a court from giving It to hlin when
It comes out. of the public treasury.
Difficulty of Unscrambling E?r.
The more one follows the legal
process of disintegrating the Stand
ard Oil company, the more he must
appreciate the Scotch answer of Mr.
Morgan. "Can you unscramble eggs."
In the plans for distributing the
stock of tho thirty-four subsidiary
companies of the Standard Oil, the
Atlantic Refining company, for in
stance, a holder 'of ono share of the
Standard Oil company of New Jersey,
receives n proportionate interest In
the capitalization of the Atlantic Re
fining company In this caae of
49S96-!833o3d8 of one share.
This Is but a sample of the olmoBt
countless details entering Into this
unscrambling process. Tho1 very
same tedious test is exemplified In
the reorganization plans of the to
bacco trust. Men may speak glibly
of trust dissolution, as if It were but
n matter of oral direction on the part
of an executive or n court, but before
these; two dissolutions are complete
the country will appreciate tho her
culean task It has set the govern
ment. Of course, the complexity of
the undertaking should constitute no
argument against Its desirability. On
the other hand, It might well be
urged as a powerful argument In
favor of It. The fact is plain that
we endured the old system too long
and thus gnve it time to entrench
itself, sending out Its sprouts and
limbs of power and Influence In
every direction, so that when the
work of uprooting and hewing down

the, surgeon general o'. the army to ac
cumulate annually an additional stock
for an entire division of troops and at thi
rate there wilt be a satisfactory accumu

not been determined what hall be the
ultimate quantity, but the present plan
of the military authorities contemplate

The quartermaster general nf the army
was able at the end of the fiscal year, on
June 80, to make a quite unpreeendented
showing in the saving of expense on the
appropriations for the fiscal year of 1911.
as compared with the results of the pre
ceding year. The raving in the ease of
general supplies amounted to 1217.000; in
that of fuel and' mineral oil. ItOO.ncO; In
that of inclndental expenses. $119,000, and
In arany transportation. 85.000, or a total
c-f V,l.oro. Had It not been for the
maneuvers, which constituted an extra
ordinary draft on the army transporta
tion fund, the saving In Hint appropria
tion would have reached IHOO.OuO. When It
Is considered that the appropriations for
the fiscal year of 1911 wero more than a
million less, in the quartermasters de
partment, than for the preceding fiscal
year. Jhe total Bavlng for l'JU was In the
neighborhood of 2.0nO.OOO.
The quartermaster general of the army
Is preparing two Important circulars re
garding the method of property account,
inr? in the quartermaster's department.
One of tlnse circulars will contain th3 in
struction and regulations for maintain
ing thu stocks of quartermaster "supplies
at various posts and t-.tations of the army.
The ether specifies the maximum and
minimum quantities ,f such supplies t.i
be maintained at all posts. This Is in the
line of the policy of decentralising duties
of the quartermaster's department. Thesj
Instructions are the result of the careful
study of the present svstetn of account

for the quartermaster general to ascer

quantities of all classes of supplies on

Coat of Philippine Oecapatlon.
It has been estimated by the War de
partment that the cost of the military oc
cupation of the Philippine island since
December 8. H9S (the slging of tho treaty
of Purls) has been $lin,4sti 403. This was
one of the questions asked by the chair
man of the house committee on War de
partment expenditures when Major Gen
eral Iionard Wood, chief of stuff of the
army, was before that committee. It was
explained by General Wood that It was
exceedingly difficult to furnish such a
statement, as the methods of accounting
In the War department wero not bused
on a division of this kind, and that some
general assumption would have to be
made as to what portion of the annual
cost of the support of the army should
be charged agulnst the Philippine Islands.
It Is manifestly Impossible for anyone
to say at what strength the regular army
would have been maintained during the
last ten or twelve years If the I'nlted
States had not possessed the Philippine
Islands. After further conference with
the chairman of the committee It was de
cided that the department should submit
the statement with such limitations and
sueh conditions as General Wood thought
best, these limitations and conditions be
ing set forth. In accordance with this
understhndlng the quartermaster general,
the chief engineer, the chief of ordinance
and the chief signal officer of the army,
under whose bureaus the principal mili
tary expenditures In the Phl'lpplne islands
are made, were directed to furnish a
statement showing the cost of the mili
tary occupation of the 1'lilllpplnn Islands
order the assumption that It the army
had not been In the Philippine Islands an
equal number of troops (exclusive of
Plilllpniue scouts I would have been main
tained In tlio t lilted States. Based upon
tho figures furnished by tliet-e bureau
chiefs, It appears that under this assump
tion, the cost of tho military occupation
In the Philippine islands hus been the
