New York Sun Attacks President Roose
veil Interest in Interstate Commerce
Commission The President Asked
To Revise His Tarifl and
Washington, 1). C, Mav 4lh.
Considerable comment has beeu
caused in political and official circles
of Y usliinglon by the publication in
the New l oik bun of an attack up
on President Roosevelt for his course
against the trusts. Beginning with
tho assertion that the President was
above all othel things a politician,
ami was bending every effort o ob
tain a nomination, the editorial pro
ceeded to say that Mr Roosevelt bad,
in his attacks upon wealth, exceeded
the wildest thieats of populism.
The attack caused tho adminis
tration licpublicnn politicians of the
capital to gasp, for they were not on
the inside of the game and they
thought it meant war on Roosevelt
and the administration from the
combined capital and Wall street in
terests and also war on the Republi
can party after the nominations next
year. They did not know that it
was a part of the play by the tariff
interests to scare Itoosevelt and stop
any further nttuck on the trusts of
the administration. Although Ins
assault so tar on the trusts nave been
popguu attacks and have not in the
least injured them, yet the trusts
want In in to let them severely alone
and do nothing that will in any way
attract attention to them whether
tin y are hurt or not. In order to do
this thev arc trying to frighten him
and his friends, bo far the attacks
of the administration on the trusts
havo been confined to tho beef trust
and to the northern securities mer
cer. To show that neither has been
nVetive of eood to the imblic it is
only necessary to remind the people
that the northern securities iner:
decision has been so inodilied that
they are slill enabled to pay divi
(lends to the stockholders, and the
beef trust, after paying some fines,
has advanced the price of meats
from $2 to $ per 100 pounds and
the public will have to pay the fines
in the end. Whether or not these
"feeble" attacks on the trusts cease,
there is no disposition on the part of
the illegal trusts to support a IJeino
erutic ticket. The Washington
Star, a Republican organ, gave that
snap away when, m sneaking of this
atta k of the New York Sun on
RoosoV-lt and the possibility of the
linancial interests jf the East pre
ferring u conservative Democrat to
another term of Roosevelt said:
The onlv trouble would be that the
elect inn of a Democratic president
might carry the election of u Demo
cratic House and some Democratic
state legislatures. The big indus
trial corporations are not ready to
risk even half a Democratic adminis
tration soon again." That tells the
lory in a nutshell. J he criminal
1 rusts are not going to have a Denio-
ralie administration it they can
i lp it. They know who are their
riends and the, will stick to the
Republican party. Ihe present ad
ministration may make lilulls at
them that brings them into unpleas
ant publicity, but it will never do
anything that will permanently in
jure their graft on the people.
Knowing this they will stand pat.
If the people desire to stand with
them ami continue to be robbed, that
is their look out. If they sincerely
desire to curb the aggressions of the
trusts they will assist in kicking out
an administration that tieats symp
toms but never the disease, aim elect
a Democratic administration.
Theie is an eager interest here m
all circles anent the proceedings be
fore the Interstate Commerce Com
mission in New York in connection
with the Coal Trust. The impor
tance of the investigation is evident
ly nppreciuted, but in some quarters
there is u lack of information as to
the origin of the investigation. A
number of papers nave suited that
the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion set itself in motion at the in
stance of United States Attorney,
(leueritl Knox. That is an extraor
dinary misapprehension of the situa
tion. The truth is that the investi
gation is being held because Attor-
v-General Anox could not tie in
duced to take action against the
Coal Trust ou perciseiy the same
evidence that is now in course of be
ing made public at the sessions of
On October 4 last, Representative
William Randolph Hearst informed
President Itoosevelt by open, letter
that he had petitioned the Attorney
General for jx-rmission to supply the
latter with documentary evidence of
the existence of the Coal Trust, in
order that he, Mr Knox, might be
enabled to proceed against it- for its
disruption under Federal law. A
few days subsequently Mr Hearst
was formerly requested by Mr Knox
to submit his proofs to United States
Attorney Burnett for the Southern
District of New York, who would
report thereon to the Department of
Mr Hearst placed General Burnett
in possession of evidence which es
tablished the tacts that, tne coal
carrying railroads are in illegal com
bination for th suppression of coin
patilion in mining, for the arbitrary
regulation of supply, and the fixing
Attorney- General Knox received
Mr Hearst's proofs, with General
Burnett's report upon the same, but
neither brought suit against the
Coal Trust nor gave Mir Hearst's
! General's friends in the Senate, tak
ing the ground that to force him to
disclose tlie case against the Coal
Trust might inteifere with his plans
for prosecuting it. And this ground
was taken without any apparent
Representative Hearst appealed to
the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion to grant him a hearing. The
Commission complied with his re
quest, and Mr Hearst, as the sole
complainant against the Coal Trust,
is, by attorney, now exposing in .Sew
York the methods and practices of
the monopoly which cursed the com
munity with the prolonged miners
strike of last summer and brought
on the fuel famine to its own profit
and the public s loss.
hen this inquiry is ended, the
people of the United States will
have been made so thoroughly famil
iar with the devices of the Coal
Trust and their unlaw fulness that
legal action should be taken for its
Mr Baer and his parceners in coul
monopoly are not engaged in a legi
timate business enterprise, but u
criminal conspiracy. Therefore the
law should deat with them for the
protection of the robbed public.
If the Coal Trust is not then
prosecuted by this administration,
we will know how empty are its
professions of hostility to tho com
bined monopolies of the country.
Who has read any comment on
the comparative sniallncss of the
Steel Trust's taxes? Its report
shows that it paid tuxes on the
amount of $o,:j)7,.ii;- in V.W2
This is less than 2 per cent of it
net earnings and less than 2 mills
on the dollar of the value of its
propertv, according to itseupital and
sworn statement of in president.
Is there any sound reason whv this
pri'tected-billion-dollar trust shout
pay in taxes 18 cents ou every $HU
when the unprotected common peo-
pl'.i pay si or s.i on every ; lot) worth
It is probable that this trust pays
less than $ 1000,000 of taxes on fts
iron and steel lands, valued ut over
;jU 00,000,000. This is less than one
null on the dollar. Ihe taxes ou
ordinary farm lands worth loou,-
000,000 are about 13,000,000.
When President Roosevelt was
about, to leave on his western trip he
was called on by a delegation of the
prominent members of his party and
was compelled to revise his tariff and
'trust busting" speeches to be de
livered on the trip, or take the con
sequence of defeat or attempt at de
feat in the next Republican national
convention, ihe revision was made
at their dictation, and. inasmuch as
he had not tunc u irirntc an ins
peeches he used some of the warm
ed-over speeches that were satisfac
tory to the tarilt barons. The speech
that he delivered at Minneapolis on
April 4 isalmost verbatim the speech
delivered by Secretary of War Root
lit Cooper Union, New lurk, last
October. If any man doubts it let
him get them and make the com
parison. This -simply shows how
the President is being dominated by
the trust interest of the country and
what a hollow mockery is all this

I was once wry much opposed to
women speaking in public, but I was
oivo very ignorant. I have heard
some women talk in public that
made me feel like I was not capable
of saving grace at the table. I have

of male speakers that men ought to
talk no more in public. It has fal

in this connection we venture to
lelate u circumstance which happen
ed at a hotel in Marion N. C, three
or four years ago. Dr. Curry was at
this time making his annual trip
through the State visiting schools,
and arranging to establish some not
yet in existence. This was in the
month of August, and after spending
soniu hours ou the hotel porch with
this piinccof talkers, wc agreed toie
t i re, and when the it-porter had con.
ducted us upstairs we found we were
to occupy adjoining rooms. Soon
after saying ''good night." to our
companion we heard him read a chap
ter in his Bible. Those of my read-
is w ho ever listened to Dr. Uurry
read his favorite of all books, the
Bible, will pardon me from listening
to his voice, from his first word to the
end of the chapter. And this was
not t he last ol his devotions. I he
reading of the scriptures was follow
ed by an audible prayer.with no audi
ence but myself, he did not know 1
was listening, but I did listen and
heard a prayer I shall never forget.
His words were us simple us those of
a child, and yet they came with the
terror and eurnestness ot a man plead
ing for his own life. These were
some of the special objects of his pe
tition, the old soldiers who had bat
tled for their country 'a cause, the
Governor of the State, preachers, edi
tors and school teachers.

numerous occasions, in legislative

The Asheville Citizen sums it up
as follows: "The merchants that are

and dcvelopenicntof a town are its
biggest audliest ad.-ortisers. Any
one who brings trade helps not only
himself, but the entire community.
A town full of such men would grow
and prosK-r anywhere. It is the
merchant who sits aroi.nu ami waits
for some one else to induce the pco-
le to come in to trade that kills
town and incidentally fails himself.
It is thought by such Jieopie tnat
the currents of "enterprises of great

and "lose the name of action." The

The Lesson Beck's Fall Teaches.
A few year ago a man in Alle
hanv county bv the name of D. M.
teck deserted tlie Democratic party.
lie began to edit a bitter and vituper-
alivn Republican sheet. Later he
was appointed postmaster at Sparta.
In I-ebriiiiry lie was arrested tor de
falcation, removed from otlice, and
cither been tried or will be tried
in the Federal Court. When charged
with using money belonging to the
post otlice department, Beck is quot
as saving that lie used tne money
in the interest of the Republican
parly by circulating his newspaper.
That is probably strictly true. A
mail wlio publishes a newspaper ror
a party that can't read must have
some outside source of revenue. In
the absence of campaign costribu
tions Mr. Beck seems to huve used
the public money entrusted with him
to print his campaign sheet. The
revenue doodlers and other little
bosses were patting Beck on the back
while he was "whooping it up" for
the Republican ticket through his
paper. They deserted him in the
hour of his trouble trouble caused
by following the lead of bigger men
in his party.
Mr. Beck doubtless wishes now
that he had never taken the first
false step. A man who bartcis his
political principles will, if tempta
tion comes, fall into other wrong-

Self Oovernmcnt lor Ireland.
The uuestion of questions as to
the immediate future is whether, if
the laud bill passes, Mr. Wyndham
will have the courage to go- farwurd
and add a further extension of local
self-government to the other schemes
which he is incubating for the bene
fit of Ireland. That something will
have to lie done, nobody knows bet
ter than Mr. Wyndhain himself. We
have governed Ireland in the past by
the landlord garrison. The antago
nistic interests of the tw.) classes en
abled us to act on the classic maxim,
Divide et imivsra. The aim of his
hill is to terminate that division. If
it succeeds, we shall be confronted,
for the first time in the history of
Ireland, bv a united nation. 1 he
younger occupants of the old castles
and country-house in Ireland will
take their natural position as leaders
of the people, with whom their in
terests will be identical, in vain
shall we try to keep the new wine of
united and revived Nationalism in
the shrunken bottle of Castle gov
ernment. Irish autonomy, in one or
from another, is the necessary and
inevitable corollary of the last legis
w; Arnlnit. nf the Unionist gov
ernment. -From a sketch of "The
Right Hon. George Wyndham, M.
P. C'hamnion of tie Irish land bill,"
