WALL STREET ALARMED.
Eyen Wall street is taking alarm
at the so called "industrial" secur
ities, the polite word for the stocks
Of the trusts. On this matter Henry
Clews soys :
4lIn most cases, they are greatly
overcapitalized ; properties are taken
in at exaggerated valuations ; factor
ies are absorbed with the expesta
tion that they will be kept idle ; "good
will" is capitalized at fictional figures ;
and profits are promised which are
incompatible with the maintenance
of prices for products low enough to
either protect the combine irom com
petition or to staye off public dissatis-
faction and legislative or legal inter
vention. It is a serious question for
Wall street as to how far it is con
sistent with the safety of its large in
terests and with its reputation as a
great financial market to become in
strumental in the distribution of
thousands of millions of securities
-resting upon such a basis as these
industrials" for the most part
possess. It would seem inevitable
that these corporations must, at no
very distant diy, become a burning
. question in politics; and, in that
event, what would be the situation of
investment interests if Wall street
were found flooded with these
Mr. Clews is entirely rigbt. These
trusts must, at no distant day, be
come a burning question in politics,
and when that day shall come the
American people must do battle with
a cunning giant.
Consider the possibilities of one of
these gigantic trust6, that of the
American Steel and Wire Company,
organized last week with a capital of
90,000,000. This single combina
tion could afford to spend annually
an enormous sum to secure for itself
"friendly" consideration by the
United States senate. There are
forty-five states and ninety senators.
On an average fifteen senators aie
elected annually. Legislation so mild
as to reduce the profits of this trust
toy I per cent only on its capital stock
would mean to it $900,000. Rather
than endure vigorous legislation, this
single trust could well afford to throw
$900,000 anuually into these fifteen
senatorial elections a corruption
fund of $60,000 for use before every
legislature electing a senator! -
When one reflects on the corrupt
ing possibilities of one trust, the
mind is staggered by the thought of
the evil which may be wrought by
the scores of trusts now in existence
in this country. Spokesman Review.
General Shafter, on his way . West
to take charge of the department of
California, is undergoing an ordeal
similar to the one Lieutenant Hobson
underwent while crossing the con
tinent. The women only encountered
greater difficulty in their enthusiastic
osculatory exercises, because of Uie
general's enormous circumference.
Seriouslj-, though, there should be an
end to this immodest display of ad
miration for heroes of the war. It is
not a befitting act on the part of a
self-respecting American woman to
publicly kiss an utter stranger be
cause he better served his country in
times of danger than did his brother.
There are other and more delicate
ways for American women to display
their profound admiration for men
having . performed valorous deeds
than by hugging and kissing them.
This practice is nauseous and subject
to the severest criticism from a
standpoint of decency. Telegram.
Horrible agony is caused by Piles,
burns and skin diseases. These are
immediately relieved and quickly cored
by De Witt's Witch Hazel Salve. Be
