The rapid formation of trusts
threaten serious injury to the news-
paper craft. It is estimated by
conservative men that during the
past six months the trusts have
caused a decrease of from $0,000,
000 to $13,000,000 yearly in the
amount spent by general advertis-
ing. The Baking l'owder Trust,
the Beer Trust, the Tabacco Trust,
the Cigarette Trust, the Knit Goods
Trust, the Photo-Paper Trust, the
Camera Trust, the Rubber Trust,

The monetary bill, more firmly
fastening the gold stand upon the
American people, has passed both
houses of congress and is now ready
for the President's signature and
will, of course, receive it.
The bill is, without doubt, the
most dangerous one that has over
been presented to the American
congress. One of its many objec-
tionable features is that section pro-
viding for the retirement of the
greenback and issuing in lieu of
them interesting bearing gold bonds
upon which to realize gold to fill
the vacuum created by the with-
drawal of the greenbacks. The
bill also reduces the taxation upon
national banks, at the same time ex-
tending their privileges as bmks of
This question should concern
cvoiy American citizen. The
greenbacks draw no interest, they
have passed through the channels
of trade since 18(52 and have rend
ered a satisfactory service to the
commercial world. It is true there
have been muttering* of discontent
by reason cf them but not as much
as the echo of those mutterings now
remain in the ears of the American
people. The issue was settled-
Now why eonie forward with a bill
retiring them and issuing instead
interest bearing bonds? «
To the credit of the democrats in
congress, they opposed the bill,
with the exception, however, of
nine Eastern democrats who are
identified with Wall street inter
csts. The cffects of this bill will
be realized by the American people
and the republican party will be
held accountable for it.

TRAVELING MEN AND TRUSTS.
The traveling men of this coun-
try, realizing the great injury re-
sulting to them by reason of the
trusts, have formed a Commercial
Travelers Anti Trust League.
Hotel men are joing them and
couraging them in their efforts to
protect themselves. Head the fol
Extract from the New York Herald. July 12. 1899.
"It is estimated that there are
350,000 commercial travelers, who
are paid on an average ti) a day for
traveling expenses, and a day
salary, that is $10 each per day or
$900,000,000 per annum. Besides
saving this enormous expense, there
are thousands of country papers
which live 011 the advertisement of
industrial products. Of course
this army of drummers and country
papers will attack the so-called
trusts, but they can never overturn
them." Pikrrk Loiui.laki).
