Secretary Taft Is rapidly disclosing
his ignorance on the trust question,
for to believe him ignorant is more
charitable than to believe that he does
not intend to interfere with the trusts,
although his language would justify
even this belief. He takes Mr. Bryan
to task for favoring the extermination
cf trusts, and says that to exterminate
trusts would be to exterminate Indus-
try. The secretary desires to regulate
and control trusts. But has his party
not been "regulating" and "control-
ling" for some 11 years now? And
have we not more trusts now than we
had when the regulating and control-
ling began? The trust family is a
family big enough to satisfy the presi-
dent's ideas of the size of a family,
and the birth rate is greater than the
death rate. The administration has
commenced suit against a few trusts,
but not against many, and the trusts
are still gentle enough to come up and
eat out of the hand of the administra-
tion. What has been dune in regard
to the steel trust? Did it not swallow
up the Tennessee Coal and Iron Com-
pany? And was it not given out that
the swallowing was done after the ad-
ministration had been consulted? Is
the steel trust fighting Secretary Taft?
And what about the International Har-
vester Company? Have the farmers
secured any relief yet? And what
about the paper trust? The steel trust
has something like $1,000,000,000 of
water in its stock; it can afford to con-
tribute ten millions to the Republican
campaign fund, because it can get
hack many times that out of a Repub-
lican victory, and this is only one
trust out of the many. How can the
people hope to regulate or control
trusts when the trusts, by the election
of their favorite to office, are able to
control the government?
The extermination of trusts Is not
the extermination of business. If, for
instance, a single corporation has a
monoply of the production of a neces-
sary of life, and has ten factories in
different states for the production of
this particular article, the extermina-
ticn of this trust would mean the
selling off of enough factories to re-
duce the production of this one corpo-
ration to a point where it would no
longer have a monopoly. But this
would not mean closing up of the fac-
tories. The people would still need
the article and the article would
still have to he produced. But the In-
dependent factories coming into com-
I ctition with the original corporation
—now no longer a monopoly—would
reduce the price of the article, and the
peoj ]e at large would get the benefit;
of the reduction. With a reduction in
1 rice, the pecple could buy more of
the article produced, and this would
increase the demand for labor, and
new factories would spring up or ex-
isting factories would be enlarged.
With a number of factories competing
for laborers, the laborer's chance of
employment would be better, and his
wages would be higher. Then, too,
v.i;h a number of factories competing
for raw material, the price of raw ma-
terial would increase. In other words,
the extermination of the trusts, in-
stead of destroying business, would re-
stc re business to a healthy condition
while it reduced the price of the prod-
uct, increased the price of raw ma-
terial and improved the condition of
the laboring man. Competition is the
natural condition, and the extermina-
tion cf the trust would restore compe-
tition. Monopoly is an unnatural con-
ditii t>, and the Republican party has
festered monopoly and thus built in-
dustry upon a false basis to the deeri-
ment of all of the parties concerned
except the monopolist, and he has
been demoralized by his unearned
m alth while the rest of the people
have been victimized by the practice
of monopoly.
Secretary Taft ought to study the
trust question a little more, or discuss
it less, for each speech reveals his
lack of familiarity with the subject
or his lack of sympathy with the peo-
ple at large.
revision. They will run the risk oi j
hooting and jeering. Their little game '
is too transparent. Their only serious
argument—that they could not touch
wood pulp and paper without reopen- 1
ing the whole tariff question—was
gone when it was shown that the ad-
mitted need of forest-saving furnished
a complete and convincing reason for :
treating the wood pulp and paper du-
ties as belonging to a separate and dis-
tinct category. The house minority
is on record as acquiescing in such
treatment of these duties. The anx- (
ious standpatters know that telling
quotations from presidential mes-
sages and resolutions of manufactur-
ers and clubs and other organizations
were at their disposal to justify to all
minds the singling out of the schedule
in question for revision at this time. |
They are reckoning without the com-
mon sense and the humor of their con- j

'farmers' educational?
When in doubt, go to the local.
As fast as you pull up one plant
In the garden, plant another.
fn education there Is conservatism
of power; in union there is strength.
The man who plants pigs Instead of
cotton Is the man with the long head.
Better get up some plan to keep
the school going a litle longer if pos-

The United Stat steel corpora-
tion's 1907 earnings were the greatest
in its history. You would look a long
while for a tariff revisionist among the
managers of that corporation.
The si eaker of the national house
has Introduced 111:-: resolution for an
independent investigation of the paper
trust and the allegations that have
been made against it by the publish-
ers. The resolution was passed yes-
terday and the speaker appointed an
investigating committee. But If any
of the standpatters Imagine that they
are fooling anyone their capacity for
self-deception is extraordinary.
Who takes the resolution seriously?
Who will take the investigation seri-
ously in view of the origin and pur-
pose? It will be regarded as an in-
vestigation for "Buncombe county
only." The new trust busters are In
no hurry. Though there Is "nothing
doing" in congress, it is not expected
that the work will be completed be-
fore adjournment. And then the na-
tional conventions will monopolize at-
tention, and no one will remember
wood pulp. After that the dog days
will furnish an excuse for a slow pace.
Out standpat friends Intend to "ex-
ploit" the resolution In tholr "dee-
strlcts," to point to it with affected
jride as a statesmanlike substitute for
The proposed plan to have a com-
mission revise the tariff is not nearly
so good as the plan of letting the
people elect a congress that will re-
vise It in the interests of the people.
Writing to the New York World, T.
K. VanDyke of Harrisburg, Pa., says:
"Here are three questions for the
World to answer;
"1. Did the World support Bryan in
1896 and 1900?
"2. Will the World support Bryan
In 1908 If he Is nominated by the over-
whelming vote of the national con-
"3. For whom does the World speak,
naming specifically 'the interests'
which control its utterances?"
Over Mr. VanDyke's letter the
World prints this headline. "Answered
with Pleasure," and below the letter
appears the following:
"1. The World did not support Mr.
Bryan in 1S96. It supported him in
1900 on the issue of the un-American
policy of Asiatic colonial governmen*.
"2. It is not easy to conceive of cir-
cumstances in which the World could
conscientiously support Mr. Bryan for
president this year.
"3. The 'interests which control' the
utterances of the World are the pub-
lic interests.—Ed. World."
But the World does not answer Mr.
Van Dyke's third question. He asked
"For whom does the World speak,
naming specifically 'the interests'
which control Its utterances." And
the only answer which this great
newspaper makes to this question is:
"The 'interests which control' the ut-
terances of the World are the public
But that by no moans answers the
question. It Is mere assertion and
leaves the reader dependent upon the
word of the editor of the World, which,
in this particular, may be of no value.
Let the World state the extent of
the financial interests held by its own-
er, Joseph Pulitzer, in railroad com-
panies and in great corporations com-
monly known as trusts.
With this information tho readers !
of the World will be in better position '
to determine the special interests for
which the New York World is carry-
ing on its campaign of misrepresenta- I
tion with respect to Democrats who
have not, the favor of the World and
its masters.
A Republican exchange says that
Senator LaFollette would be more of
a Republican if he voted less often
with the Democrats. True, but lie
wouldn't be right nearly so often.
The state labor department of New
York on April 19 issued a bulletin in
which It is stated that at tho close of
1907 one out of every three union men
in the state was idle. The trades
union policy is to not only shorten the j
working day, but to limit the number
of working days per week in order to
insure work enough for their mem-.
hers to provide against want. For in-
stance, the International Typographic-
al union has a law prohibiting a mem-
ber working more than six. consecutive j
days if there is any member of the j
union looking for work in the local
jurisdiction. Many local unions
adopted a five-day law early last win-
ter In order to distribute the work
among more men. Other unions do
the same thing, and this served in
large measure to tide many men with
families over the winter. But if one
out of every three union men in New
York state is out of employment, what
must be the proportion of jobless men
In the unorganized trades and occu-
pations? The campaign slogan of "the
full dinner pail" would elicit more
jeers than cheers if offered to the
workln ;men of New York to-day.
The New York Evening Post Insists
that organized labor demands the
legalizing of the boycott. The Post
is unable to see what organized labor
demands is merely that a member of
a union may legally do what he might
legally do if not a member of the
union. In other words, organized la- j
bor demands that the possession of a
union card shall not deprive a man of |
his rights as an individual under
law and the constitution.
Several representatives of public In-
terests at Washington no doubt wish
some of the American newspaper re-
porters would go on strlko like those
German newspaper men.

It ought to be a reasonable cause
for throwing any member out who
will raise mongrel chickens, stock or
crops. In fact, no good Union man
will have mongrels of any sort.
The time will have to come when
all men will have the same right to

kindly gave all her children. Land

world has to contend with today.

i happened when Admiral Evans was in

bluejacket was at the mast before ■
[ Cap!. Evans, charged with getting
food out of a mess chest outside of '
meal hours. This getting of food for j
night watches is a common and strong
desire on tho part of most men aboard
i"apt. Evans asked the man what he
had to say; and the man, sizing up
the delicate situation, said:
'Captain, 1 didn't take no food outer
that chest. Why, captain, there
weren't no food in that chest! 1

among your chickens, cut off the heads

This always cures the disease.
Don't fall out with your neighbor
because he has not even yet become
a member of the Union. It may be
that your local is so slow about do-

able to see the advantage to him of
coming in.
Judged by the number of Union
papers springing up all over the coun-
try, there is no dearth of literary
ambition among the brethren. How
will it be this fall when the prizes for

the farmers?

What is Pe=ru na?
fs it a Catarrh Remedy, or a Tonic,
or is it Both?
Seme people call Pcrura a great tonic. Others refer to Pernna as a c?eat
catarrh remedy.
Which of these people are right? Is it mere proper ta call Peruna a ca-
tarrh remedy than to call it a tor.ic?
Our reply is, that Peruna is both a tonic and a catarrh remedy. Indeed,
there can be no effectual catanh remedy that is not also u tonic.
In order to thoroughly relieve any case of catarrh, a remedy must not only
have a specific action on the mucous membranes affected by the catarrh, but it
must have a general tonic action on the nervous system.
Catarrh, even in persons who are otherwise strong, is a weakened condi-
tion of some mucous membrane. There must be something to strengthen ths
circulation, to give tone to the arteries, and to raise the vital forces.
Perhaps no vegetable remedy in the world has attracted so much attention
from medical writers as HYDRASTIS CANADENSIS. The wonderful efficacy
of this herb has been recognized many years, and is growing in its hold
upon the medical profession. When joined with CTJBEBS and COPAIBA a
trio of medical agents is formed in Peruna which constitutes a specific rem-
edy for catarrh that in the present state of medical progress cannot be im-
proved upon. This action, reinforced by such renowned tonics as C0LLIN-
to make this compound an ideal remedy for catarrh in all its stages and locations
in the body.
From a theoretical standpoint, therefore, Peruna is beyond criticism. The
use of Peruna, confirms this opinion. Numberless testimonials from every
quarter of the earth furnish ample evidence that this judgment is not over
enthusiastic. When practical experience confirms a well-grounded theory the
result is a truth that cannot be shaken.
