EATABLE MEAT NOW.
The new meat law is now In effect
and this fact means a great deal more
than any but tie packers and handlers
of meat suspect The fact that only
such meat products as are duly tagged
'inspected and passed" can be carried
as interstate freight by the railroads
of the country and the further , fact
that this form of tag can be obtained
only by those establishments which
have obeyed the clean up order and
haTe otherwise prepared themselves to
pass gor?rnit(!)t inspe-Hci. sfc U.af

possible. About one-eighth of the
packers who were notified to re
form their plants have not done so,
and they will have to dispose of their
products in the States where they are
located. It ia now the duty of tin
various States to discover who are the
forty or so packers and if they are
merely behind in - their renovation or
if they propose to defy the require
ments of decency and the law. The
significant and memorable thing about
the meat-packing reform is the more
than remarkable promptitude which
has marked it. The whole matter,
from first agitation up to yesterday,
when the law went into effect, has oc
cupied but a few months. The law is a
monument to the efficiency and celer
ity with which American public opin
ion moves toward legal enactment,
when ably and earnestly directed.
! MOTHER'S INLUENCE.
The mayor of Akron, Ohio, is asking
the mothers to join him in a crusade
against the "mashers" who are said to
be particularly troublesome on the
streets of that city, and his proposition
is a novel one. He does not want the
mothers to go out and give the mash
ers a drubbing, but he urges that they
can help materially by keeping a more
strict restraining hand on their girls.
Mashers find encouragement in their
occupation by the willingness of too
many girls to engage in flirtations on
the streets, and the mayor suggests
that the mothers administer a spank
ing to their daughters who persist in
going uwwniown at night seeking ad
venture. Many mothers, it is reported,
have consented to comply with his re
quest. The expediency op probable effective
ness of such a method of correction
may well be doubted. Girls who are
old enough to flirt are beyond the
spanking period, and with the average
girl corporal punishment is more likely
to work harm than good. It is unfor
tunate for the mothers and the daugh
ters when proper maternal influence is
not strong enough to control without a
suggestion of physical punishment.
There is unquestionably truth in the
assertion of the mayor of Akron that
girls are themselves responsible for a
large amount of "mashing" that is done
not only there, but in every city. Very
seldom will a girl conducting herself
modestly be annoyed oi insulted on the
streets. Spokesman Review.
There are many things to disprove
the notion that a life of sordid repres
sion of humane feelings can go on to
an unperturbed end. Suicide, from one
cause or another immediately, may be
an instance of the ultimate revolt of
emotion denied their normal exercise.
The lmines in which Al Adams
amassed the wealth that failed to make
old age tolerable to him was one no
body could possibly follow if he had
the ordinary sentiment of pity for the
poor. Ft hira the vice of gambling,
whk-h makes poverty frightful and
hopeless, was something . not to be
checked, but to be encouraged for his
own profit It was reported' he said his
business was as legitimate as that of
toe grocer or the butcher. Only greed
triumphant over every helpful instinct
could lead him to express that view.
His occupation was such that his in
come w. in direct proportion to the
prevalence of misery, vice and crime
among the poor, "W hla perverted
feelings claimed the right to control
his action at last, it was in a wild
or maudlin moment, which resulted in
stretching out hie self -mutilated body,
dead. Forfeiture of his own life was
the logical outcome of abnormal con
tempt for the Uvea of others, and of
career inspired only x by avarice
DOES, OR PREACHES.
If the present New York
campaign shall teach nothing
ele, it certainly should impress
upon the wide awake citizen
and voter the world wide
things and the man who merely finds
fault because things are not done. It
is the ever-brilliant Bernard Shaw,
who sums up this difference in his pithy,
"He who can, does: he who cannot,
preaches." It matters not whether one
preaches from the pulpit, in his daily
utterances, or in a string of papers.
The point to determine is, does a man
who asks for your faith in bis power
to achieve do so on the strength of
mere words, mere rhetorical flourishes,
the blare of type and the blatancy of
sounding phrases, or does he point to
a record of achievement as a public
servant! Have his words been essen
tial to or started any movement for
reform or human weal, for better pol
itics or institutions? What has he
done to. make life bettep worth living
for others as well as himself t Ex.

CUBAN AND UNITED STATES.
The erowinir commerce of the Unit
ed States with Cuba is ahown by the
statistics for the fiscal year 1908. which
ended June 30. The increase in ship
ments to Cuba, while visible in many
articles, occurs chiefly in the manufac
ture of iron and steel, of which the
total exports to the island were $0,
879,649, against $0,164,908 in 1905. The
total American exports to Cuba aggre
gated $47,763,688 last year. This was
25 per- cent greater than 1905, 75 per
eent greater than in 1904. and about
120 per cent greater than in 1903. The
imports from the island fjU slightly
below those of 1905 due to the fall in
the price of sugar. Of the five articles
forming the bulk of American imports
from Cuba, sugar amounted in value
to $60,000,000, tobacco $13,500.00, ci
gars and cigarettes $4,000,000, iron
ore $2,000,000 and bananas, $1,000,000.

z r -t S
CZ3T HE ago of competition all around is giving place to tho ag
1 of COOPERATION AND COMBINATION. It it
, vain for men to try to prevent people from organizing.
The whole trend, sweep and current of our time ia toward
organization. It is a movement ever forward, upward and
toward a larger, better AND NOBLER LIFE. So it ia in religion,
for religion ia not a mere relation between the individual soul and ita
God. It also ia a relation of man to hw fellow man, and we are moving
not toward a church united by a common owed, but toward a church
animated by A COMMON DOMINATING PURPOSE.
In the future all these denomination whieh canw together through
their representatives at tho Mohonk peaot conference will U united
by no common sot of formulated beliefs, but by a common spirit and
a common aim. For the spirit of the twentieth century is the recog
nition of the brotherhood in religion, BROTHERHOOD IN IN
DUSTRY and brotherhood in polities.
, , The nineteenth century has been an age of energy and enterprise
surpassing in these respects all other ages, but it has had ita vices, and
some of these still are among us. The first vico of our American life
is our ambition to accumulate, to struggle each man only for himself
and his own and then to measure his place in tho world by his SUC
CESS IN ACCUMULATING. Our second vico is tho lawlessness of
elf will the putting of self will abovo tho low, which is tho will of
the community. And the third is tho false standard. I am not con
demning men, romember, bocauso they have amassed fortunes. I am
not attacking multimillionaires. It h better to bo a multimillionaire
than to wish you were one AND NOT HAVE THE ABILITY
TO GET THERE. Tho evil of tho multimiIlio:iairo is tho concen
tration of wealth with a sordid aim and a FALSE STANDARD.
The remedy for the ambition to accumulate, for tho self will and
the false standard is recognition of tho fact that society is not a mob
of individuals struggling ono with another, each caring only for him
self and his family, to see what he can got out of the common pile, but
an organism, a personality, in which every mnn is to servo every other
man, in which the common interest is to be the supremo object of every
one's endeavor. There must bo recognition of the commonalty of the
nation, the personality of the nation, and every citizen, instead 0?
Toting and working for his own interest alone, must put forth his
energy FOR THE NATIONAL WELFARE. Such, men we have
that belong to no party. You mar not agree with their policy. Yon
may criticise their party. Their temperament may not be favored
YET YOU CANNOT BUT BELIEVE THAT SUCH MEN ARE .REC
OGNIZING THAT THERE 13 SOMETHING ELSE TO BE DONE IN

NEW YORK, Oct. 6.-The report
from Milwaukee yesterday, that the
stockholders of the Chicago, Milwaukee
& St. Paul Railroad had authorized
the directors to issue $75,000,000 'new
preferred and $75,000,000 additional
common ttock caused little surprise in
Wall street, which accepts the report
as true. Chairman Roswell Miller of
the St Paul board declined to discuss
the subject. The general belief is that
the new stock will be issued to push
! the Pacific coast extension of the St.
Paul to completion. A significant fact
is the report that negotiations have
been resumed with the Pacific Coast
company for the purchase of the val
uable terminal facilities at Seattle. The
terminals are said to be worth $25,
