A Sunday school teacher in
Carthage, 111., bus a class of little
girls, and it is her custom to tell
them each Sunday of some litll in
cident that has happened in the
week and request the children to
quote a verse of Scripture to illus
trate the story. In this way she
hopes to impress the usefulness of
bihieal knowledge upon the little
ones. One Sunday she told her
class of a cruel boy who would
catch cats and cut their tails off.
"Now, can any little girl tell me of
an appropriate verse?" she asked.
There was a pause for a few mom
ents when one little girl arose and
in a solemn voice said: "Whatso
ever tlod has joined together, let no
man put asunder."

What will the U. S. Industrial
Commission say about trusts, in

complications have served to nrinu
this (luestitin to the front. The in
dustrial commission gavo exliaus-
live htarings on the. trusts, and
their relation to labor and business
and the report should bo of more
valve than such things usually are.
If it should be unanimous, it tin-
luestionably would lie. Hut if there
bo two reports signed respectively
by the majority and minority
members of the commission, they
would have no tnoru value nor
carry any more weight than the
usual partisan reports put out by
a congressional committee. Repre
sentative Livingston of Georgia, u
member of the commission, said in
course of an interveiw: "There is
one subject the industrial commis
sion proposes to handle without
gloves and that is the trust ques
tion, ami how it eflects both capi
tal and labor. The trust question
is the most important problem we
have to consider, and it will bo
disposed of first. In voiw of the
present conflict between capital
labor, the consideration of this im
portant subject will call together 0
full attendance of the members of
the commission. No uuo can' now
suggest what the recommendations
of the commission to congress will
be, but I trust and believe it will
be independent of Hlitieal bias and
free from partisanship. It is not a
political question, for both republi
cans and democrats are directly or
indirectly associated with the var
ious trusts. As things are going
now, It will ret ui re prompt methods
by the government and extremely
delicate handling of the subject to
prevent . a revolutionary contest be
tween capital and labor. This state
of affairs cannot go on much longer
without serious consequences.
Some meinliers of the Knights (if
Labor and of the American Anti
Trust League, in Washington, have
started a movement to aid the steel

Monnett, of Ohio, who claims that

The interior department has re
ceived a resolution adopted by tho
legislature of II waii, asking con
cress to impose a duty upon all
coffee imported from olhercountries
and in this way protect this in
dustry in Hawaii and other parts
of the U. 8." 1 ho resolution will,
of course, bo sent to congress in due
time, but it is doubtful, very doubt
ful, whether the industry of coffee
growing "in Hawaii and other parts
of the U. S." will be considered of
sullicicnt importance to justify put
ting a duty on coffee. It is possible
that coffo growing may bocomo a
great industry in Hawaii and other
island possessions of tho U. S., but
it is little more than an experiment
at this timo, and, in voiw of tho of
ficial reports against the uuo of
Hawaiian coffee in the army and
naw rations, because of its lack of
strength, it can hardly yet claim to
be a successful ono.

Mr. L. D. Hastings, of San Fran
cisco who iB largely interested in ori
ental trade, especially grain and
food stuffs, who is now in Washing
ton, thus emphatically expressed
his opinion of the Treaty of Paris:
"Our commissioners- who framed
tho treaty of Paris, which marked
tho end of tho war with Spain,
made a grievous mistake in agree
ing to the 'open door' policy for the
Philippines. The Philippine is
lands are American territory and
will always remain such, and I can
see no iustification for tying our
hands with a treaty agreement that
we will retain no trade privileges
there that other nations cannot en
joy. It would be as sensible to
agree that the other states in the
union shall enjoy no advantages in
the markets of Now York Btate that
are denied to England and qther
foreign nations," Mr. Hastings ex

Hy a decision of the comptroller
of tho treasury, I'JO.OOQ appropri
ated hv tho agricultural hill for the
current fiscal year for penological
investigation, is placed at tho dis
posal of tho secretary of agricul
ture to bo spent in encouraging the
export of American fruit either in
guaranteeing a minimum return to
tho shippers or in paying all or
part of the freight charges. While
not so-called, it will in reality lie
