Vhllo tlio pooplc generally have just
begun to realize the evil of concen-
trated capital there were not wanting
wise meti over a qunrtor of a century
ago who saw the dangerous trend of
affalrB and spoke warning words.
Among those seers was Karl Marx
who in 180? wrote concerning concon
tratcd capital as follows :
'Along with the constantly dimin-
ishing number of tho magnate of aap-
ltal who usurp and monopolize nil tho
advantages of this process of transfor-
mation grows tho mass of misery 6p-
prosslon slavery degradation exploi-
tation; but with this too grow the
revolt of tho woricing class a class al-
ways increasing in numbers and dis-
ciplined united and organized by the
vary mechanism of the process of capl-
'The monopoly of capital becomes
a fetter upon tho mode of production
which ljas sprung up and flourished
along vith and under it. Centraliza-
tion' of tho means of productiun and
socialization of labor at last reach a
point where they bocome incompatible
with their capitalistic integument.
This integraent is burst asunder. The
knell of capitalist private proper y
sounds. The expropriators arc expro-
This' is an oracular utterance but
out of it can be gathered the facts that
Karl Marx saw the end from tho be-
ginning. He flaw that tho larger cap
Hal fats would absorb tho smaller that
nvoalth would Continue to be segjrro-
gat6d and that financial oppression of
tho people would cause revolt and re-
volt would destroy the trusts.
This thought was more clearly ex-
pressed 'by Edward Bellamy In 1887 In
his famous book " Looking Back-
ward" which Ib supposed for tho sake
of tho narrative to ba written by a
man living In A D. 3000. This suppo-
?ltjqu3 dwe ler in tho dawning year of
ho twenty-first century says :
' Early In the last century the evjlu-
tlou was' completed by the final c n-
solldatTon of the entire capital of th
nation The industry and ootnruero
oftjjp country ceasing to ba conduct-
ed by a set pf irrespjnsiole corpora-
tions and syndicates of private persons
at their. caprice and fur their profit
wdro ontrustod to a single syndicate
rcpre&unting the people to bo o in-
ducted in the common interest for the
common profit. Tho epoch of trusts
had ended in the groat trust. In a
word the people of the United States
concluded to assume tho conduct of
their own business just as 100 years
before they had assumed the conduct
of Vhclr cfwh government."
Both the writers quoted were con-
sidered dreamers in ihotr day but the
tYjpnd of events seoms to Indicate that
Jli'ey Were in reality prophets."

Probably no Englishman of modern
time has had such a strange caroor as
thrtt of Hugh Cecil Lovrther earl of
Lonadnlo who recently announced his
intention of taking care of the wives
and faralllos of all the men in the re-
serve corpB in Westmoreland and Cum-
berland counties while their husbands
are In active service. Twelve years
ago tho noble earl was chiefly noted
for his attentions to various burlesque
actresses among them Violet Cameron
being prominent. At that time ho vis-
ited Now York hut was ostracised by
society becAUso of his escapades. At
that time also the duke's financial
affairs woro in a bad way chiefly it
should be stated because of the reck-
less extravagance of his brother
known as the "Bed Earl" whom he
succeeded tti 18S2. Shortly after his
visit to this country the earl turnod
over n now loaf to such effect that at
present ho is regarded as a model hus-
band. Ills estates have been mnnagud
with Btich skill that ho Is now ono of
the richest men in England. He has
distinguished himself as an arctic ex-
plorer and he Is probably the most

CHURCH OF ONE TREE.
One of tho most extraordinary ie-
liglous structure In the country stands
at Santa Clara Cal. This Is the liouso
of worship hsod by some of the Bnptlst
hrethron of tbat place. Evory stick of
timber used in tho structure was cut
from ono sJnglo oak troo. Fifty years
ago this oak sheltered tho first Baptist
congregation ever assembled together
In that region; and on account of the
historic astsciations attaching to It It
was decided by the descendants of tho
same original Baptists to use it in
building the structure which now
stands on this site. Tho tree was out
off twenty feet from the ground and
the big stump which wan partially hoi-
low was left as the foundation for the
steeple of the new church. Tho rest
of the trunk and the immonse branches
were cut up into tlmher and usod in
the construction of the church. "Whon
the building stood completed meas-
uring thirty felt wide by seventy feet
deep Uio remained of lumber more
than 1400 feet.

lo Allotments Growing
Acute Willi Indians
The sltua't'on in tho Indian Tcrrl
tory Is aoute. The Indians aro unab.c
to scoure posEosslon of their allot-
ments owing to the resistance of the
whites who now occupy tho lands.
During the past few days hundreds of
tho Indians have visited tho hondquar-
torB cf the Dawes commiss'on at Mus-
kogee to protost against the bad faith
of tho United States government ns
they assert in failing to put them in
possession of their allotments ns it
.was promised should be done in the
agreements which they made with tho
Dawes commission. Some of them
have pleaded tenrfully for their rights
while others ha?e threatened.
Mr. Needlet of the Dawes commis-
sion writing to Washington friends
concerning the conditions existing in
tho territory says they are outrageous.
Unless they are changed for tho better
he says that bloodshed is not improb-
able. All tho facts bearing upon the
situation have been laid before Secre-
tary Hitchcock and some acion by
the department to relievo the tension
may be expected within a few days.
It has been given out that tho Cher-
okee warrants were to bo paid fint
but as there F.U11 hangs some doubt
ovor the legitimacy of some of these
Cherokee warrants tho payment of
them has been deferred. CD
Thrre are a lot of Creek warrants in
the hands of Governor Porter and
awaiting his aignaturo which will be
afllxcd porhaos tomorrow as his arriv-
al is looked fcr trday. Tho warrants
held by the school teachers will have
lo be approved by supervisor Ballard
of the Creek school p. They will bo
notified of the approval of the war-
rants. There is n good deal of Yankee
breezlnesB in your Australian. Indeed
ho Is more like the Inhabitant of the
Middle West of these United States
than he Is llko.the other members ot
the British fnmlly to which he be-
longs. This breezlness extends to
musical criticism. A recent number of
tho Sydney Bulletin contained the fol-
lowing: "In Brahms' concerted music
the Instruments seom to be constant-
ly arguing with oach other as In Bee-
thoven. The argumont starts in the
aljogro movomont; hoads are broken
and thq combatants Jump onieaph' oth-
er In tho allogrtto; and In "the final

pital arguing all tho way."
