One of Uie witnesses before the Committee ou Ways and Means, .Mr. A. O. Crozler. of Wilmington. Del., in disputing the dictum that the tariff is the mother of trusts, made an argument which seems to one to be worthy of a wider circulation that it is likoly to get if It is published nowhere except in the "Hearings." He said: "The real mother of trusts is Wall street. Few would have been formed but for its machinations and exigencies. Clever promoters, who since the sucecss of their schemes are called great financiers and hankers, ob^ talned options on different plants In a given industry. Then they formed a huge corporation with almost an endless amount of stock, but relatively no money. They caused the board of dummy directors, consisting of their office boys and irresponsible clerks, to "buy" such options, paying therefor the entire capital stock of the company. All this was valueless unless they could find some way to sell U for real money. First, they tried, and usually succeeded, to pay for the plants under option by issuing to the original owners a comparatively small portion of the stock of the new company. This was genius, of its kind: the promoters thereby acquiring control and management and a good portion of the titlo to a lot of going concerns. .\H this for nothing, by simply promising the owners that Wall street, with its canny powers and machlnerj- for public deception, would hypnotize the public Into believing that the plants were worth several times more than the original owners ever dreamed of. 80 the people would take their savings from the banks and buy the stocks of the new trust to an extent that would enable the original owners and the promoters to unload at fictitious prices and make a clean -up. The scheme worked, thanks to the wizzard ways of Wall street. The stock exchange was the wholesale agency and the screen that hid the perpetrators from the despoiled people. This was the way the overnisht raultiml'Uon- alres were made. This was the way trusts were born. The tariff had nothing to do with It. If It is true, as reported, that Mr. Carnegie was wllliiic to siO' for onf' hundred millions what he nftirwnrdF sold to the trust for al >oiit IJofi.Ofm.- 000. he can not ho blamed To- ilrivlnc a good bargain with, tin- promoi-r.'' even If the neonle muR< now vay for If.

""loss th" plan to abolish thn tariff can h<- mado to (Ifstroy thfir weaker compi't Itors for them. One of the nrinie ohieots of the promoters of tho <rusl .5 is said to have lippr. ti,p furnishing of several h 'llionr of FPcu '-illes that eotlld he listed at"" "flrtlficlally maninulated dai 'y bv thp Insiders as ehii).= on Wall streef .s ' cj-eat eamlne table, where bv means that would not be nsed by the, most hardened of professional gamblers the people of the'entire country are en tlced and dailv fleeced out of thrir earnlnes and their iiropertios. Tht legislature refused to act. so dovern- or Huehes ha .s annoinled a p-lvate committee to Invpsticate Wall street. Their work will be more thorough and successful if the entire wroneed country win nromptly rise up and deman'' the abolition of maririn gambling and nsuri. as rates on call loans, the former exceeding in volume the value of al' farm and manufactured products the latter, with rates that often go np to 200 ner cent, being the great mafset with which the money of the entire country Is enticed away from leettlmate business and Into gambling uses."' I We are likely to think well of thr Judgment of a ^an who expresses oui sentiments, and as I long ago expressed exactly thej same vlewf as to the inioulty of margin gambling, the speech cf Mr.j Crozler seems to me to be mighty good sense. C. F. S Thn Farmeni of Htat» Yi'onU Lift Hli Solar) to Fire ThouMind DoUani. Topeka, Kas., De6. 29. —^There seems to be a 1 general uprising among the fannera of Kansas In favor of the legislature lifting the salary of Secretary F. D. Coburn of the board ot agriculture to f5,000 a year. He now receives only $2,500, which they declare is not enough for the work he does. CoLuin, as advertising man for Kan- .ofls, receives less pay than the advertising man of most any big mercantile house or newspaper. He has been offered $?,000 a year by Arthur Capper to edit the f;apper farm papers. He also several standing offers of employment at double his present salary, but he has turned them all down. He loves to work for Kansas. Therefore the farmers, whom he represents chiefly, are demanding that his pay be lifted to somewhere near a respectable an^ount. As the farmers have more to say now in state affairs than they used to it Is likely that their demand will receive careful con.sldera- tiou by the legislature this winter. Bfgr (hitxfde Otters. .Not only are newspapers and private concerns making him tempting offers but other states' have sounded him, with a view of securing his services. But he is too loyal to Kansas to even think of going to some other state to do a similar work. He prefers to stay here. And he will stay no matter if his salary Is never raised. Hut it will be ruised. The Kansas farmers never start <iui to reward a faithful servant liul what they succeed. >\Tteu they gel in full motion woe be unto the iwlltlclan who tries to head them off. That class of statesmen now in the saddle were put there by the farmers and they will be mighty B'.OW to turn down any rea.son- ible request of the farmers. Some of Secretary Coburn's friends suggested that the legislature grant him a year's vacation on full pay. They say he deserves a rest. Hut the rotilile is Coburn won't rest. Won't Take Yacatlon. The state board of agriculture a couple of years ago voted him a three months' vacation, which he has never taken. If he won't take a three months' rest, how much less are the chances of him taking a whole year's rest. The fact is. Coburn would rather work for Kansas than take an extended vacation." said a prominent farmer, who will be in the upper branch ot the legislature this winter. He doesn't care for a year's vacation. He wouldn't take it if it were granted. He will continue to snatch a few days' vacation each,year when his work isn't pressing, but that's all. The thing to do is to lift his salary and let him continne to work. He earns ten times his present salary as the state's advertising man. and I am sure that no one would object to his salary l>elng doubled." PILES ri'HED nr « TO 14 DATS.

BUBBLE BURSTED .tfrx. E. .\. Jackson's Drrani of Lore and Afflnen«(> Undeljr Sbat- fprwl. .Manufactured in Effort to Stamp Oot Tul>ercolo$Is. Washington. Dec. 29.—Inspired by the sale of the Red Cross Christmas and New Year's stamps this year, ^he officials of the American .N'ational Red Cross in Washington already are plan ning to make (his Innovation a permanent American Institution. It Is estimated that 25 000.000 stamps were shipped from the three printing establishments at New York, Philadelphia and Baltimore, to various sections of the country during December. Owing to the fact that not. all of these shipped will be sold. It Is difficult for the national oftlcia 's to estimate accurately how much will be gained by this method for the work of fighting tuberculosis. It is believed that next year the sales, which were made in thirty- seven atatea this year, will be extend' ed to every state and territory and will be largely Increased.' During the coming summer artists throughout the country will be asked to submit designs for the stamp to be sold next year. Already offers have been made by men of means to provide prizes to stimulate competition among the artists. The plan now favored is to adopt a new stamp for eacb year and posslb'y to have (he name of the state overprinted upon It. Congress may be approached wttb the idea of procuring more eneouragement in tbe sale of tbe little stamp. Though the denouement In the romance which has unfortunately Interwoven itself Into the life of Mrs. E. N. Jackson, a widow of this city, came with tlw developments of yesterday, tbe final chapter of the story is yet to be enacted,—If the police can find one John Madson, who played the rol'e of a German millionaire. Readers of the local newspapers are familiar with the story of the courtship of Madson with Mrs. Madson. How he came to tola some time igo, became a boarder in the Jackson home, established himself in the good graces of Mrs. Jackson, told of the great wealth which he possessed and finally proiwsed marriage. Later Mad aon was suddenly "called" to Germany to settle up some business affairs in Germany. He did this stunt In exactly fourteen days from the day he ^secured $l!)00 from the widow and hurried to New York, promising to return within two weeko. Mrs. Jackson then received a letter from Madson, in route from New York, asking her to come to Kansas City. She Itiiniiedl- ite'.y sold her home In this city, her household goods and other effects and hastened to the eiiy to meet .Madson. The Kansas City Journal tells the 4tory thtis; llehititl the Issuance of a warrant from the prrjKecuior'ii offloe yesterday for the arrest of Jtihn Madson. alias C.

Not long ago, he told her, lie had purchased in Kentucky a horse costing $4,000. adding that he was ihort $1,050 on the purchase price. .Mrs. Jackson disi>osed of her property and advanced the amount Madson mentioned. Soon afterwards Madson informed her that he had to go to Germany to, settle up the estate of his father, who/ he said, had died wealthy. He was back in fourteen days. After that Mrs. Jackson and her two children came to Ivansas City, she having fumed all her property Into ^ish in the meantime. Madson met her and proposed a trip to his California ranch as soon as they were married on Christmas eve. At his re- luest she gave him $380 to purchase Ickets to California for the four of hem.
