THE COMMERCIAL WOLF CRY.
Vt'henever the federal government.
In the course of its nigh and splendid
offices in behalf of the people, find It
necessary to abridge the insolent ag
gressiveness of some powerful per.
son, firm or corporation, the wolf-cry
of "paternalism" Is set ringing from
one end of the domain to the other,
and some adept commercial thief
surges to the front with a specious
plea in behalf of the combines and
trusts and attempts to make it certain
in the popular mind taat the country
could not exist if it were not for the
presence and methods of the alleged
beneflcient business aggregations. We
are tired of the dogma and Its heralds.
We know the real value of superb and
orderly classifications of business
rules and their application to the im
mense tasks of filling the markets
and fixing the course of transporta
tion, and all the vital expedients of
perfect conduct of commercial affairs
and are not deprecating anything of
the sort. It Is the mask of duplicity
and dishonor these people wear in
discussing these great questions; their
lying and chicanery. In the present
ment they make, that we resist and
deplore; the falseness, and adroit
pleading, that mystifies an dmlsdl
rects the popular conception of the
Issues. And we take comfort In the
conclusion that at last the people are
becoming well enough posted to waive
the beguiling stuff aside and bold

Every man knows that the tenden
cy of commercial life is toward the
closest and minutest line of concen
tration in all things, and that the

world, bat not along the route of
spoliation, frauJ and robbery prac

wrought upon the common people.
The cry of "paternalism" will mean
much more than some of them real
ize at this day, if the law does not in
tervene to stop the debauchery of the
markets, and save the people from the
withering effect of the present course
of incalculable plundering.
THE GENTLEMAN THIEF.
The"plnk domino" burglar just cap
tured In Portland turns out to be a
college graduate, a refined and ele
gant dllletante thief, who stole, not
an abnormal taste for extraordinary
for the sake of plunder, but to gratify
excitement, and for a bizarre repu
tation that few men possess outside

A Cigar Wrapper Often
Covers a Multitude of Sins
You know quite well that there are many cigars sold
for five cents that are very poor quality. They are sold
on appearance. A fine appearing wrapper, a handsome
gold band or a prettv box-lid may cover a multitude of
sins, but it i3 the fitter, the inside of a cigar, that deter
mines its smoking quality.
Modern manufacture "exemplified in the American .
Cigar Company's products has grown way above this un
fortunate method of doing business and assures a cigar
that is honest all through.
The "Triangle A'T merit mark on a box of cigars
means that every sprig of leaf in every cigar in the box
was graded especially oy experts for that one brand, two
years oef ore it was made ; that during this time the leaf
has mellowed in great, clean warehouses in a perfect tem
perature till all its finest qualities are brought to a point
These are some of the reasons why "Triangle A"
cigars smoke with the fine mellow flavor that you thought
was only to be found in expensive brands ; why every
"Triangle A" cigar has an even flavor and aroma from
(end to end; why every cigar of each "Triangle A" brand
' smokes just the same.
"Triangle A" cigars cost you no more than the
"mixed" cigars-though they are worth twice as much.
Look for the "A" (Triangle A) when you buy cigars.
" Triangle A " brands offer the widest obtainable range of choice,
and absolutely dependable quality in whatever brand suits your taste.
You'll never find a better brand to make the test with than
