EEL KI7EE ELECTION The Road May Become a Part of the Wabash Aaln Lloe. Wabash May Abandon Its Toledo Line to Hold the Detroit Line. The annual meeting of the directors or the Eel River railroad company was held yesterday at Butler, Ind. The fallowing officers were elected: President—P. W. Crispro, of Boston, Mass. Secretary and Treasurer—P. W. Smith of Boston, Mass. General Manager—W. V. Troutman, of Butler, Ind. The stockholders and officers were all of the one opinion, that the line was too valuable to the Wabash for that company to allow it to be sold under the foreclosure sale now pending before the Indiana supreme court to any other company, and the foreclosure will be fought to a finish. ID fact, it, is given out ttat the Wabash will make It its main line in the event of the Ohio line to Toledo being sold under the Compton judgment, which now seems assured. KA1LEOAD NEWS. C. L. Case, a freight brakeman on the Panhandle, is off duty on account of illness. The Pennsylvania lines have twice the freight equipment of the average railway system and yet are now short of all kinds of cars to till orders. In 1896 the Panhandle company furnished employment for 54 through freight crews. Now there are but 17. The reduction was due to the Increased size of the locomotives. A rumor has gained currency to the effect that, the Wabasu railroad would move it* locomotive shops.now at Springfield, 111., to Decatur,where the car department Is established. The Wabash passenger department will In a few days send out calendars for 1898 which, it Is stated, will be the most attractive of any yet issued by this road, which Is saying a good deal, as the Waoash passenger department has displayed much talent in this direction. Tbe statement was made the other day that the new mogul engines in use on the main line of the Tandalia pleased the company as well as the men called upon to operate them. This appears to have been an exaggeration, for yesterday but six of the twenty-sir engines were fit for service. The others were In the shops at Terre Haute for repairs. ' Tbe engines are also sucrrrough movers that when the men can they ride in the tank. Deer Hnnters Return.

It Is the Political Trust, and Ita Object Is to Control Politics With Money. We have a Sugar trust, a Standard Oil trust, an Iron and Steel trust, a Whisky trust, a Cordage trust and other trusts, the names of which would fill out this column, says the Cincinnati Enquirer. They are all formed upon the basis that competition, while it is good for the public, is bad for the stockholders. A scheme is said to be on foot to pool all the trunk railroads in the country into one great trust which shall own the majority of the stock in each road. Then there would be no competition between the roads because they would all be controlled by one ownership. Railroad rates could then be put np high enough to take "all that the traffic will bear," which is to say that the rates could be raised up to the point beyond which nobody would ship any freight. Then could be realized the ideal railroad prosperity, which could echo the words of the greatest of the railroad magnates who said, "The public be damned I" Then there is the Gold trust —the trust of trusts. It is from its pool that all other trusts must slake their thirst. It is the vampire that feeds upon the lesser vampire. All these organizations are in peril of their lives unless they can control the government They canuot afford to have inquisitive men placed in power because they cannot safely submit to investigation, and so a great political trust has beeu formed to avert this danger. For many years single trusts and corporations have placed an agent in congress and state legislatures here and them All the great railroad states were known to have strong railroad lobbies This invited many people of the baser sort to struggle for eeats in congress and the legislatures as an occupation. Bnt last year saw the inauguration of a stupendous movement to control the politics of the United States with money. There was no concealment about it The trusts of the coon Cry and the great railroad corporations and banking institutions appointed Marcus A. Hanna to carry the bag which they would fill with money for him to spend in the capture of the government outright. He dominated the national Republican convention by convincing its delegates that if they would name the candidate and adopt the platform dictated by him he would make money run like a river to control the election. He was allowed to have his way. Thus was organized a great political trust which blotted out the Republican party an<J usurped its.£la£e, Ticket Scalping Good i* D«*d.

NOT A PROUD RECORD. ^ What Elcht Months of McKlnley Knla Have Accomplished. - • During the campaign last year the most distinct pledges were given by, everybody connected with the Republican party that if the people would elect) McKinloy and place the Republican party in power confidence would be restored, prosperity would return, and everything would go on swimmingly, says the Atlanta Constitution. The Republicans declared that there was a lack of confidence abroad, and that as soon as Mr. McKinley was installed foreign capital would begin to flow in this direction. How has this pledge been fulfilled? During the less than eight months'of Mr. McKinley's administration more foreign capital has been withdrawn from investment in American securities than the whole of our immense wheat crop amounts to! If this is a record to be proud of, Mr. McKinley.and his party should be filled with pride,today. Most wonderful to relate, too, the only note or sign of prosperity that the country has witnessed has resulted front a cause which the Republicans denounced most bitterly during the campaign—namely, the cheapening of the dollar, the depreciation of the currency. For a time we have had a 50 cent dollar as compared with wheat and wool, and the outcome of this depreciation has been so stimulating that even the "sound money" men have been compelled to approve and applaud it. We are led to make these remarks by the gloomy views of Mr. Pierre Lorillard. the millionaire snuff maker who for two years has been hobnobbing •with the princes and potentates of Europe. Mr. Lorillard informed a press reporter before leaving England for America that European capitalists have so utterly lost confidence in the United States that they cannot be persuaded to invest a cent in the railroads and other business interests in this country and have withdrawn, all their investments The true composition of Cleveland's baking powder is plainly printed on every can.

Mr. Lorillard thinks he has discovered the secret of this lack of confidence. " If it were not for the socialistic forces,'' he says, "the United States would command millions of money now idle in Europe." It is funny to hear a snuff- maker complaining about "socialistic forces, " but that is a matter of taste. What are these "socialistic forces?" Why, simply the common people, the honest masses, the voters, the men who toil and create wealth to be enjoyed by others more fortunate. The only socialism ertant in this country today is the right of the people to choose their own rulers, the right of self government. And it is this power of the common people to govern themselves and the country that alarms Europe and frets the worthy tobacconist who spends so much of his time in Europe. Reasonable Prices.
