I 1 don t like to do tbe "1 told vou
; so act," but the recent collection of
$25,000 in tines from four representa
tives of a big beef house in Chicago,
for violation of the .hlkius liuw
against railroad rebates, puts me in
mind of the fact that in several of
my lettcis I have said that there was
law enough on the statute books at
tbe present time to raise Uaiu witn
both of tbe railroads tbat the ship
pers who have been participating in
these rebates if it were enforced
This littk Chicago incident proves
it. It is trne that the offence was
committed some time ago when the
paying of rebates was qmte the
fashion, Since the railroad rate
agitation has been on, the fashions
have changed and railroad compan
ies are not paying rebates as a rule.
Uemacocues mav still tell you tney
are but the facts are agin 'em.
Yon tiuiv have noticed that the
fellows who paid the Ones were em
ployes and not members of the firm.
The big fellows got away just us big
fish Morton slipped off the hook af
ter the President's investigators of
the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Ve
case had him safely hooked and
were ready to land bin. It strike s
me that these little lish gave up a
hopeless fight and were landed eufe
ly in the government attorney's
creel so us to call off attention from
the big fish that the government was
nominally after, but who so far it
has failed to land. I5etween you
and I, I don't think they will fish in
that hole much longer. Tedily has
managed to secure a little political
capital for his HJiand Old Tarty,"
and as other members of the Beef
Trust gave up $100,000 to help elect
him, I am bettiug that they will be
allowed to go Scott free, just ai Paul
Morton whs after ex-Attorney-ueuer-
al llinmon had him hooked. I
wouldn't be surprised if Teddy
should order his local representative
there to help out Armour, Dawes,
Swift, Morris, Cudahy and the rest
of the bunch of big rebaters, just as
be helped Paul Morton when the re
bate business was fixed on him, and
a big fine or a long term of imprison
ment stared him in the face. Teddy
is pretty good to his friends who
come to the front with contributions
as did the managers of the three
big iNew York life insurance com
mutes and the members of the Beef
Trust. These fellows who were
fined out in Chicago were not on the
list ot campaign contributors though
their principals were 1 think that
the uepublicans are using this in
cident for all it is worth to show
what a mighty good and law obey-
ng party they are.
Along last summer I wrote that
if Koosevelt was really in earnest in
his desire to have the law against re
bates enforced, he had all the law be
needed on the statute books to pun
ish the offenders. He got a little
more of it than he wanted in the
Morton case, and then decided that
it was against corporations and not
persons that he wished to act. 1
wonder if be thinks the public is
going to be satisfied when he has the
charters of tbe Atchison, Topeka &
santa fe, of tbe Armour racking
Company and of the Hutchinson
Salt Company sent to states prison
for as loug aa the parchment on
which they are written lasts. That
would seem to be .the only possible
outcome of the position he takes
that yon can t prosecute men who
make political contributions &ni
must confine yourself to non-cor
poreal bodies. They don t amount
to much more than the paper on
which their charters are written. If
he would get a hustle on and have i
few of the men who own these char
ters Gned as the law provides, I
think he would make a greater hit
with the common run of people aud
prove his sincerity. The chances
are, however, that men who might
be punished, bat who made contri
butions to the campaign fand, will
be white-washed just as Morton was,
while the Republican National Coin?
mittee will continue to hold up the
railroads and trusts for political con
tributions and blackmail
I wonder if it was because the bis
railroad corporations refused to be
held up by the Republican National
Committee for contributions to the
Roosevelt campaign fund at the last
election, that our estimable President
is so very hot after railroad rate regu
lation by a political commission.
Certain things that have happened
lately wonld suggest that there is a
good deal more than probability that
this is a fact, and that bis posing as
a friend of tbe "dear people is all
At the insurance investigations
nw in progress in New York, it has
already been brought out in swora
testimony tbat the INew York Lafe
Insurance Company paid $50,000 to
his campaign fund, and in two years
had paid similar amounts to the Re
publican Kational Committee. This
is aummeuij tne result oi merely
scraping tbe lurfaoe. It is certain
to be developed tbat the Mutual
Life and Equitable life contributed
at least as much and possibly more
to the same fnnd front the savings
of the policy holders for tho benefit
of their widows and orphaus.
Perhaps yon remember when t,.e
Equitable scandal was first nneartb-
ed an appeal was made so Mr. Rons -
vcltto step in and protect tbe policy
.up a tree as if there was u mighty
good reasoir for it and that reason
lay in the liberal contributions of
money to the campaign managers
that succeeded in electing Roosevelt.
It has not been brought out in
testimony yet, .but it is very well
known, that the Uhicujo iseet 1 nut
contributed $100,000 to that same
Koosevelt campaign fund. You
know they did not do it simply bo
cause they loved Teddy. Think
they did? How about that Ourtield
report that white-washed the whole
bunch and showed them to be tbe
greatest philanthropists that ever
existed, instead of a lot of blood
suckers who were raising tbe price
of meats to the poor and make every
body cough up for the benefit of
their own pockets. There may have
been no connection between that
$100,000 contribution and that Gar
field white-washing report, but i
Teddy did not have a hand in muk
ing the white-wash, then some of
the best informed men in the coun
try are greatly mistaken.
it was a well known fact and
widely commented on during the
campaign that the railroads had laid
down on Mr. Cortelyou. and had re
fused to contribute something like
hall a million dollars that he n ant
ed th m to cough up to help elect
Teddy. I wonder if that bad any
thing to do with Roosevelt's sudden
ly aroused antagonism against the
railroad managers, and his m-.irc to
take the control of the railroads away
from them imd put it in the hands of
a political ccin mission which he liini-
!elf appoints or controls. Was
Roosevelt's refusal to interfere in
the insurance candal due t the fact
that they helped him ou'. at election
time? lia bis suddenly t'.i'ouwd
antagonism to the present system of
railroad management been caused by
the fact (hat the railroads refused

OUR RALEIGH LETTER.
An Adverse Criticism of The
Clansman. Raleigh Will En
tertain at Fair. The Strenu
ous Life of the Governor.
Gorman News Bureau,
Raleigh, N. C, October 9, 1905
Tom Dixon's stage production, Th
Uiuiis nail, which was presented lie-
in two performances before audiences
limited only by the capacity of the
theater within the last week, has
provoked a great deal of discussion
pro and con, and has fallen heir to
more criticism, both favorable aud
unfavorably than any play that has
over been put upon t he theatrical
boards in Kiileigh
All this of course serves to more
fully advertise tho production and
increase the size of its audiences and
therefore swell its financial income,
The primary object of a playwright
and the theatrical managers is to
produce and present a play that will
earn money for its creators and
managers, and judged from this
standpoint alone 1 lie Ulansmau has
so far proved au unquestioned suc
cess and all the indications point its
continued financial success in the
South at least. How it will be re
ceived in other parts of the country
is yet problematical. Jiut it ni.ty
be suggested here that if "unci
lonis (Jabin companies could come
Nmth and make money (and they
have been doing fo for twenty years
and more) the "Clansman" ought to
be able to draw houses in the Jorth
and West. At any rate it seems to
be clear that Mr. Dixon is certain to
reap a fortune from the play, realiz-
ng a net prolit which will probably
be larger than that secured fiom the
publication and sales of the two
novels upon which it is based.
lint, aside from tbe pecuniary in
tcrests of those interested in placing
it upon the stage, this writei fail
to see the lit cessity of featuring such
a production as the '-Clansman" in
this dav and generation, notwith
standing the fact that Mr. Dixon
has stated that he regards the play
as his greatest work. As the reader
knows, the play deals with political
events and social conditions in the
South during the dark days of the
"reconstruction" period, in the latter
sixties, and it features the secret or-
.,,ni-,at;,m L-. K.k-l,,v-
llan which tbe native white people
resorted to in order to protect their
homes and families from the incen
diarism aud ravages and rapine of
the worst element of negroes who
were largely instigated and led on
by worse white men, who had or
ganized ihem into a secret order
known as tho Lniou League.
ihe best purpose which hc plav
serves is that it shows that theKlan
was not the criminal organization
which it has been described to be
and generally believed to be by the
people from other sections of the
country; tha; its existence was born
of a high and holy purpose, although
it is an historical fact that later on
some unworthy men secured mem
bership in the ixlan and debauched
it and used it to unworthy and at
times cruel ends.
As to the rendition of the play
and the personnel of the actors car
ried by the company which appear
ed here, it is faulty in several re
spects. In the Jrst place, the strong
est actor and the best stage presence,
the tinest physical specimen ot man
hood in the cast, is given tbe charac
ter of Sila Lynch the lieut-governor
of South Carolina to portray, who i
depicted as an insolent ambitious
mulatto who thorougly hates the
Southern white people, who becomes
governor pro tern, aud arrest) and
humiliates lien Cameron, the Clans
man's leader, and whose ambition
and attempt to court and uvtrry a
white woman (the leautiful daugh
ter of the Yankee Stoneman who
had preached social equality to the
negroes, and Ben Cameron's aflianced
bride) is flouted in the face of the
audience in a too realistic manner,
while the defeat of the negro's plans
by Stoneman and Cameron and the
Klan, through the timely warning
of a girl member of the Klan, is
hurriedly depicted in a much less
effective manner. The audience
leayes the theatre with a bad taste
in the mouth, distressed-or disgust
ed with the impression tbat the ne
gro lieut-gov. was made the strong
est character, which they all know
to be historically aud actually un
true and impossible. .

tor a large number of visitors to the
State Fair in private families of
residents of Raleigh, many of them
with the best people in the citv.
The citizens have responded to th
appeal made to them through the
purely patriotic Sjiint and the price
vnien visitors will be charged, in
stead of being exorbitant (as is the
case usually in such cases) will be
only nominal. In this way it is ex
pected tnat about 5,000 will be cared
for in private homes as many days
in the week as necessary. I know
that this will be grateful news to
the ladies of the State, so many of
whom wish to remain at the Fair
longer than one day. Of course the
hotels and regular boarding houses
and several temporary hotels that
are being fitted up will be able to
care for several thousand others at
night. Nevertheless, the ladies
who can do so had best make ar-

Governor Glenn spoke at Warren-
ton last Saturday to the biggest
turnout of farmers that ever assem
bled there on a like occasion. He
received a regular olden-tim" "Zeb
Vance welcome" and in his speech
he dwelt upon the necessity of or
ganization ameng the farmers ia or
der to secure the best prices for the
products ot the farms.
The slump in the price of raw
ootton during the past week is be
lieved to be only temporary and the
officers of the State and National
Colten Growers Association are urg
ing the co (ten growers not to inai
ketany cotton at the present piioe
which is below ten cents, if all tbe
farmers, or even the majority of
them will give heed to this advice
it is believed that the price of cotton
will very soon again rise to figures
above ten cents. The greatest dis
advantage that the southern farmers
have to contend with id the past has
been lack of organization and conse-
itient lack of concert of action.
Now that they seem to be in a fair
way to secure an effective organiza
tion through the Cotton Growers
Association they should all go into
the organization, for in no other
way can they adequately protect
themselves from the speculative
sharks who have for forty vears
reaped the bulk of the profit made
on each years cotton crop.
