Which conserves civilization best, competition or co-opera-
tion? Which favors Christianity and which favors Satan? Can
Christianity be established truly under competition? Does
not competition corrupt the heart, bias the mind, warp the
judgement of even courts and stain the judicial ermine with
dishonor, barter legislatures and enslave humanity and
dwarf the doctrines of the Nazerine teacher who condemned
the gambling speculator in His father's house of prayer? Is
it true that competion coined the dollar and demoralized man
hood and enslaved women and children i;nd minimized the love
of the human heart, weakened the bonds of matrimony and
made of woman the toy or slave of fancy? Are not the million-
aire, the tramp, the slave and the harlot, the hovel and the
palace, heartless promoters and souless corporations the off-
springs of competition? Competition means the lif<? of the
few and-the death of the many- Co-operation means the life
of the many and the prosperity of all. Co-operation is the
friend of Christianity and the development of a higher life and
a grander civilization. The farmers nnion is a co-operative
body, the hope of the great producers of meat and bread, the
hope of the world, founded on justice, equity and the golden rule.

T«> Oust Standard Oil.
St. Louis, Mo., March 28. —-If Missouri succeeds in ousting
the Standard Oil Company similar action may be begun in at
least twenty-five other states. The following telegrams have
been received here from Attorney Generals of neighboring
states, showing their attitude in the matter:
L. M. Sturdevant, Wisconsin—I believe that the Standard
Oil Company is doing business in this State in violation of
the law. I am contemplating the bringing of an action a-
Robert L. Rogers, Arkansas—The Standard Oil Company
is doing business in this State. I expect to institute action
W. H. Stead, Illinois—Legal action has been begun by me,
but whether proceedings will be instituted in thie State simi-
lar to those of Missouri I cannot now state.
Charles L. cates, Jr., Tennessee—A case is now pending in
the Supreme court of this State on appeal of the Standard
Oil company and its agent involving the validity of convic-
tion for the violation of the State anti-trust act and judge-
ment imposing a fine of <(5,000.
It is the belief of some Missouri officials that unless the oil
trust drops business methods it is alleged to employ it will
eventually be driven from a majority ot the States.
Oeneral News Notes.
The United States is the most
progressive nation on earth and
is using 35 million tons of iron
per annum, and scientists tell
us that our iron mines will be
exausted in 50 years and our
lumber supply in less time. Then
It is said that the president
has been told by those who con-
trol the financial interest of Now
York that he could take his
choice; either a moderate bill or
a national panic.
Don't toot your horn in the
ear of decency in the stilly hour
of the night. Use it on the quiet.

Entomb,d Miners Subsisted on Hay.
| Lens, France, March,30.—Fourteen of the 1200 who were
entombed in the mines at Courieres twenty days ago were
tauen from the mine alive and well today. They had lived on
hay found in one of the underground stables and the morsels
of food which they took into the minis with them nearly
three weeks ago. ytll attempts to rescue the entombed men
had been abandoned more than two weeks ago.
Christ says: "Give him that asketh competition, says join a
Christ say.-: 'From him that would borrow turn not away'."
Competition says: "Three per cent per month."
Luke says: ' When thou makest a dinner call not thy friends,
kinsmen nor rich neighbors to feast with you that they may
invite you again in recompense, but, instead, invite the
poor, the maimed, the blind and thou shall be blessed because
they have not wherewith to recompense thee." Competition
don't notice the poor, they invite the rich as Speaker Cannon
did recently in Washington with the nabobs and rich magnates.
President Roosevelt said recently, while trying to tickle the
south, that it was the cotton crop that brought $400,000 of
foreign gold into the country last year. Now, says the New-
York Post, to be correct, the amount brought in last year
was $53,637,802 The amount that went out was §1)2,59-1*,-
o2+ and we were $38,905,16.4 to the bad, and the President
only missed it in his statement $438,956,162.
President John Mitchell has ordered out the miners of tin-
coal regions of Pennsylvania, pending a conference of the mi
ners and operators. At the word of John Mitchel more la
boring men will stand in line than for any other man in the
world, and the women stand with the men and more deter-
mined, if possible, than the men.
It will soon he time for candidates to call in and say, send
me your paper for three months—a i \venty-fiv< cent candi-
date. A candidate that don't want th" Patriot for one vear
don't want it at all. J. B. A. Robertson is the 'ly one of
the last crop ot campaigners that has ^tuci; to the Patriot
John Davis will again be before th<
ney and if nominated will be elected,
