DEATH ON THE RAIL.
LTJRINO THE last three months
of 1 08, according to the re
port of ' the interstate com
merce commission, 474 per
sons were killed and . 4,940 injured
: In railroad train accidents. -'Other
. casualties attendant upon or in con'
nectlon with railroad service swelled
the total for the Quarter year to
1,450 killed and 10,514 injured. The
' number of actual passengers . killed
was 184, making the total of such
fatalities for the year SSI. The as
tonishing statement is made that
during this one quarter-year there
were 2,226 collisions and 1,739 de
railments, though many of these ac
cident must hare been slight and
inconsequential.- The loss to the
railroad companies from1 these accl
dents.- in Injury to roadbed and
eauioment. was J however, - over,
$8,000,000. ; t . v ..
The causes of some of the more
serious accidents were: An engineer
"appears to have taken chances" at
time when the'slgn&ls were partly
covered ty snowj tin .operator wrote
"ninety-five" for "slxty-flte"; id an
other instance the blame appeared
to rest between two operators, one
of whom had been in the service' 18
days and the other eight months;
again, the engineer "misread the
time .by his watch" another operator-
omitted the 1 word "second"
from his order; he bad been in the
fore the price could be affected or
the trust hurt. But what the trust
probably fearl is any beginning of
reduction in duties, lest when the
process is onee begun it . would go
so far as1 to interfere after awhile
with its business of robbing . the
American people y authority of law
It is proper td tnalhtain I stiff
duty on sugar; for rerenuejiurpoiel
The people do not object to paying
a large amount of tax in this way,
But they, do object to having k large
share of the tax they pay diverted
from the government's coffers into
the pockets of the sugar trust. And
they furthermore Object to the out
fageods injustice with which the con
Quered Filipinos are treated.' V"

SUGAR AND THE PHILIPPINES
TiHB POWER of the trusts in con

Influence ; against them, is
' sharply Illustrated by the re
fusal of congress during several ses
sions to free Philippine products
. from duty, although this is not only
"plain mrr af The" - lit President
McKinley said, but has been urged
by President Roosevelt and Secretary
,Taft. The ? sugar j'truBt I haa been
stronger than the president and sec
retary and than all appeals and ar
guments for Justice to the Filipinos.
This tariff on' sugar and other Phil
ippine products, the St, Paul Press,
a staunch Republican paper, calls a
"most r disgraceful blot," : and this
opinion is that of the country gener
ally, and yet the Republican major
ity 1n congress stubbornly obeys ttfe
sugar trust rather than the demands
of justice and the people. -
There IS really no occasion tor the
sugar' producers of this country to
be alarmed at all at the prospect of
free Philippine sugar.' ; After years
( f ample protection this country pro
duces only about one fifth of the
t ugar It consumes; and the increase
