The old story illustrating avarice

out ami had become unproductive,
there a as buried some where on it a
great treasure and if tbey would
persistently dig they would be richly
rewarded. The ions digged and

side down, although they found no
buried treasure, yet their harvests
were bountiful and their reward
richer than they knew.

permitted hell holes to flourish under

In the memorabilia of Socrates tha
interesting of the choice of lieicules
is given. It is here repeated in sub
stance for the benefit of yonug men:
When Hercules approached the
period of young manhood when the
young begin to give intimations
whether they will enter life by the
path of virtue or by that of vice, he
went into a solitary place and sat
dewn perplexr .. s to whioh of these
two paths he wonld puisue. Two
maidens appeared before him, one in
gaudy attire and with froward man
ner said: "Ilercules, if you will fol
low the path that I point 1 year you
shall taste of every species of pleas
ure, and lead a life free from every
sort of trouble. Yonr whole- time
will be occupied in considering what
meat or drink will please, you and
what, will most delight yon. Her
cules asked her name, and she re
plied: My friends call me Happi

to my disparagement the name of
The other maiden, more reserved

President of the United Stales, the
Hon T Uoosevelr, is gettiug himself
uisiiKeu uy ine mica aim mm pariy
nailers thut have always hitherto
stood for anything that the Repub
lican administration ever did. It all
conies up over the rather remarkable
correspondence recently made public
between President Roosevelt, Secre
tary Morton of tl.e Navy, Attorney
General Moody and the special
counsel designated to investigate the
charges of rebate paying against the
A T & S Y R R, with Piesident
Roosevelt's direct refusal to allow the
prosecution of Ml Morton for bis
tiarticipaliou in mai ruoaie payiug,
wars out what I have said iu this
correspondence, touching on the
siucerilv of the President regarding
railroad rate legislation. It proves
to my mind conclusively that the
whole Miiug is a farce, and that the
President's strenuous announcements
that he proposed to put freight lates
under government control, and make
that an issue of his fall cauipuigu,
was either a mere blind to stave off
tariff revisiuu or else a shrewd piece
of work to create an issue with which
u further the interests of Secretary
T.ift a Presidential candidate, uud
1 1 iit:ce.ful, to be itHed in building
itii mi nnpregnanle Republican ma
chine. The remarkable bill of health,
which hp gives in .r M-irtun in his
letter of Jinn Id, h.is stunned rail
load miu Nothing else, Kvery
railroad man knows that if rebut s
were allowed, as between the A T &
S I'' R U iiiid the Color ido Fuel and
Iron Co, Mr Morton as traffic man
ager ot Ule r-'a-l ulnar, or necessity,
have hcen cognizant. It could not
be otherwise The red tape of rail
road offices is scarcely less than that
of Government bureaus. If rebates
were given to the fuel and iron
company, ur anybody else, the phepks
and vouchers therefor must, nerfurou,
have passed through Mr Morton s
hands. It is simply inconceivable
that such things should obtain iu the
management or a' i ail road without
thu knowledge, of the man who is at
the head of the traific depaitment,
as Secretary Morton was. Either
the statement maue oy mm to me
President, and ou which rreaideut
Roosevelt's whitewashing letter was
based is untrue, or Secretary Morton
was not a irood railroad man, and
that never has been asserted at any
time in the many years be has beeu
connected with the railroads. As
a matter of fact his reputation among
railroad men as. a rebate payer was
paramount to any other. That these
rebates have been paid by officers of
the traffic department under Mr
Morton without bis kuowleilge and
consent, and contrary to bis direction,
is simply impossible.
Such a thing could not happen in
any railroad office in this country aud
every railroad man is satisfied' of it.
Anutn.-r tiling wqicu mis remarka
ble correspondence develops is the
fact that thu position of thu railroad
companies, that existing laws are
surticient to punisn any infraction oi
them, is correct, is made evident to
any one who is willing to sec that
fact. Messrs Judson and Harmou
have proved this so conclusively as to
call for executive interference in
order to protect an old and warm
personal friend, xne special coun
sel found a way under the so called
Elkin's law and the provisions of the
Sherman Act to punish not only the
railroads bnt the otticers ot those
railroads. And when the way is
found, the President of the United
States stent in and says it shU sot
be used effectively because it happens
to hit one of his friends. The crux
of the whole matter, therefore; seems
to be that the country has law enougn
to punish any offender among ran
road men who mav make rebates
and discriminations in favor of indi
viduals or localities, but that law is
not, aud has not been enforced to its
extent, as the railroads claim. This
stranee correspondence wonld teem
to indicate further that rresid.nt
Roosevelt, at least, does not want it
uch being the case, it is impossi
ble to believe in the sincerity of
President Kooscvelt s expressed ue-
sire to "punish the railroad com
panios, as He is pleased to (rm ih
tor violation of the law. Jt would
seem apparent instead that what he
really wants is a power of absolute
control over the companies through
rate regulation so that they may be
used to advance his political interest
or those of his successor in the Pres
idential chair. It also agrees .with
my contention iu previous letters that
tms wnoie railway rate reguiat-iou
agitation is only a device of the pro
tected industries to stave off and
smother for a time at least, all pro-1
positions for inoh tariff revision as
are now urgently demanded for the
relief of the people and to supply
the deficit now existing in the gov
ernment treasury, and that President
Roosevelt is a party to tat scheme.

tions do not mean this then Tare

To County Pension Board,.
State Auditor B F Dixon is issu
ing letters lo the members of the
county pension boards asking that
tbey do not approve applications tor
pensions except in very extraordinary
circumstances in cases couiiug under
the paragraph of Section 1 of the
peusion law allowing the boards to
ut ou the lists sue li soldiers and
idows as are unable to earn a living
from property valued at $500 or
more tor taxation and who may ap-
iear to the boards from special cir
cumstances worthy to be placed o
he pension roll. Major Dixou calls
attention to the fact that money appor
turned to such as these would only
take it from old soldiers who need it
the worst possibly.. And this could
not done exivpt in p,pes that are ex
tremely urgent. The county boards
meet in all the counties of the state
ou the first Monday in July, which
falls this year on July del.
The letter to the county boards
1 enclose you herewith copies of
the pension law together with the
list of pensioners in your couuty.
The present law was amended by the
last legislature as follows:
Sec, 1. rrovided, that
the county board cf pensions may
place npou the pension roll, in the
classes to which be or she wonld
otherwise belong, any Confederate
soldier, sailor or widow disqnalfied by
the provisions of this section, who
may appear to be nnable to earn a
living from property valued as mnch
as five hundred dollars or more for
taxation, and who may appear to the
board for seCial circumstances to
he placed upon the pension roll.
Of course this matter is left
ptitirelv with the countv pension
board, mid it is earnestly desired
that the board will be extremely care
ful iu making thorough examination
of each applicant who has property
of over $500 iu value, -because every
one of this class that is placed upon
the pension roll will take money from
those who pofsiblTaeed.it worse, and
unless the cases are extremely urgent,
1 thirk it wonld be wise for the
ixwntv pension board not to approve
tins CMas or pensioners.
