el hy a feMe hind unler Napoleo i,
an unexjHH'ted movvuient of that
great genius discon -erted them so
'.hat an immediate retreat walgun
hy th'ir vast forces. Tout night an
unsigned note, in a female hand,
coining lrom lari", was delivered
into the hands of the comnintnling
general. It read: "You can do ev
erything and you attempt nothing."
That note changed the face of the
world. A Council was held, the ar

You complain of the evil the trusts
lntVict up.m you. You complain
that the earning of the producer,
a ud the profits of the small dealer,
and the opportunity of advancement
f the many aie all contl cated for
the creation of a few multi-uullioii-alres.
The people should told:
'Why do you complain? The rem-
dy is in your own hand. You can
do everything and you attempt
nothing." The people are all hw
erlul when they really will it. At
one exercise of their will they can
lake charge of ltd government from
eonstahle, to President. If mem
ler of State legislatures and Con
gress are unfaithful, the people
hould mai k their course and el ct
others. If statutes passed in the
puhlic interest are held unconstiiu
tioul hy judges, then the same
ple who made the Constitution can
amend it if really necessary, or if
the fault i in the Judge remove

would not be understood ad opposing
fny ouggeMioi.s made by others at
this minting who are more familiar
with the subject than I and who have
studied it more profoundly, bu. I
venture to suggewt souje o-hers t at
may well le enacted hy any legisla
ture which 1 really and genuinely
h-stile to tbe-i cancer upon the
oody iolitie. First, consider tiie
nature of the oeratiou of these ille
gal corsjratIons. They combine
vast ma-sea ol capital, then when
ever tuey llnd an honest dealer or a
competing manufactuier making a
reasonable protlt on the sam gooJs,
tliey put an agent, or open a store
no ninaliy In the name of another,
alongside of him and undersell him.
Wnen they have biokeu him up or
forced him to sell out to the trust,
Immediately the pr.ee of the manu
factured article Is put up to the con
sumer and the price of the raw pro
duct is put down to the producer.
The monopoly having no longer anv
couin titor, the producer is forced to
take an unjustly low price and the
c 'iisu mer to pay an unreasonably
high one and the opportunity of
countless thousiiid of men who
would have leen dealers and manu
faclureis supK)ning their families,
i destroyed. Thse dealers ami
manufacturers would by their cam
ietition have guaranteed just price
to the creator of the raw material,
and reasonable prices to the con
sunn r. Mut the trust destroy all
das' alike and put the protit into
their own eotlcr.
The additional legislation which
has occurred to me are: 1st. The
tru-t U'ing illegal, they should le
treated as all other outlaw and for
hidden the use of the courts to col
lect debts due to them. When they
sell goods on credii, the defense that
the creditor i a trust may be pleaded
and if proven should bar any recov
ery. Enormous a are their illegal
accumulation-, even the trusts must
lo some business on credit. Such an
act its this has lieen justed in Mis
souri, Arkansas and Texa, and jhis
sibly in other States. This statute
in a modified and milder form was
introduced in the last General As
sembly by Mr. Steven and passed
the lower House, but the agents of
the trust were able to persuade the
Senate that it was a dangerous
measure a it was, but to the trusts
only. That the tmsts should have
so earnestly opimsed it I conclusive
answer to those who i-ay the law
would have done do good. The
trusts may be trusted to know their
own interests. When the "Stevens"
bill is introduced in the coming
legislature, if public opinion is ex
pressed unmistakably in its favor it
will not suffer a s. cond defeat.
2. There is needed a rigid en
forcement of the Craig law, which
forbid any corporation chartered In
another State io do business in Ihi
state until it ha been re chartered
in tli is State, and similar acts have
la-en sustained by the United States
Supreme Court. By its enforcement
every corporation doing busine-s in
this State will be subject to State
control and regulation, and if any of
them are proven to le trust or oth
erwise doing an illegal business, they
can be wound up and forced to cease
their operations in this State.
8. Another just measure Is one
l-ecently pur in force in Germany by
which a graded tax is laid upon the
earnings of corporations, the percent,
of taxation being increased in pro
portion to gross earnings. Thi dis
courages very laige aggregations of
capital and ten t to give small man
ufacturers and small dealer an op
IKirtunity in the struggle for exist
ence. It is a just application of the
maxim of "the greatest good to the
greatest number," which must be
the basis of all just government. It
is lieiter far that we have a very
large number of prosperous, well-to-do
citizens with moderate incomes,
than a few multi-millionaires, high
rolling in Loudon and New York,
while the masses of our people are
struggling for a bare living. A sim
ilar application of the German prin
ciple is the graded inheritance tax
and graded income tax in England
by which the great fortunes are
heavily taxed, raising about one
third of the annual revenues of the
British Empire, while the small es
tate are only nominally taxed and
those under a certain Bum are en
4. And there is still a fourth
measure of relief. The trusts oper
ate by underselling the small dealer,
and after he is forced out, they re
duce the price to the producer ot the
raw material and raise the price to
the consumer. This can be met by
a statute empowering the Superior
Courts in such cases to issue writs of
injunction against the corporation
thus reducing prices from again
raising them, and making an attempt
to raise them a forfeiture of the
charter, provided a jury shall find
that the redaction was made for the
purpose of de-troy log competition.;

cannot do bu-inn here witliout ;

tru-t and the lib rallty of trust
magnates, and In the debauching ot
elections and the manipulation of
legislatures and Congresses through
ioohyi.st and oiher well known and
reprenen-lhle methods. They are
thus a cancer on the body politic.
These and other evlla are known
to every one.' They are like the sun,
but only in that none can fail to see
them. No one denies the existence
of these evils or apologizes for them
save those whose who are employed
by the trusts or who are in some way
favored or controlled by them. Pul
lic sentiment and the public intere-t
are agdnst them. But the tru-ts
survive and pros-r. The people of
the State can put an end to them.
Will they do it? Shall it be said of
our Hple as of the allied armies of

you attempt nothing."

How She Gave Him Her Pocket
Book. Kansas City Journal.
It happened out on a suburban
boulevard last Saturday night and
the heroine is an athletic girl out
of a high school only a year. The
girl wait returning to her home a
little later t an is customary for
young women to be on the streets,
and hen she was within a block,
of her house a man sprang out from
b hind a tree and demanded her
pocketbook. Upon the gin's hesi
tation to give up her money the
man stepped nearer and growl, d:
"Hand me your pocketbook, and
be quick about it and don't make
any fuss "
Now the pock, tb ok that the girl
carr ed was the kind that has a
strap which slips over the owner's
hand and wh n it is worn it lies
over 'he back of tbe fingers.
Wh-n the man made a second
, demand for the pocketbook the girl
stepp d ch sh to him and nanded"'
it to him, but not in the manner
expected. She just landed one on
he Jaw with the hind that, carrd
thu pocketbook The leather spr. ad
out over the little flit, and, as there
was considerable silver in it, the
blow was vicious. The robber went
down in a heap.
He wa- on h's feet in a second
and came back at the g rl with a
look of tho greatest surprise on his
'Hand mH that pocketbook," he
"AM right," answered the girl,
striking him again on the side of
the jaw Thi tune tbe man did
not get up so quickly, but lay a
moment groaniug on tbe ground.
This was the advantage the girl
was looking for, aod she took to
her heels and was soon within her
own home. And here follows anoth
er part of thi9 true tale. When sh
flew through the doors of her home
and was met by her mother and
sisters this strange girl didn't faint,

a load ringing, wholesome laugh,
and made light of her adventure,
thus further shattering the tradi
