Line Tbe annual meeting of the directors of the Eel River railroad company was held yesterday at Butler, Ind. The following 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 fore- losure will be fought to a finish. ID fact, It is given out that the Wabash will mate It its main line in the :vent of the Ohio line to Toledo be- ng sold under the Compton judgment, which now seems assured. RAILROAD NEWS. C. L.

We have a Sugar trust, a Standard Oil trnst, 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 fihe 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 up 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 he realized the ideal railroad prosperity, which conid echo the words of the greatest of the railroad magnates who said, "The public be damned!" 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 nnless they can control the government. They cannot afford to have inquisitive men placed in power because they cannot safely submit to investigation, and so a great political trust has been formed to avert this danger. For many years single trusts and corporations have placed an agent in congress and state legislatures here and there. All the great railroad states were known to have strong railroad lobbies. This invited many people of the baser sort to struggle for seats in congress and the legislatures as an occupation. But 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 country and the great railroad corporations and banking institutions appointed Marcus A. Hanna to carry the bag which they wonld fill with money for him to spend in ths 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 1dm 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 iK,J!lace. Ticket Scalping Good &» Dcmd.

What Eight Months of MoKlnley Rule 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; iTcKinley 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 from a cause which the Republicans denounced most bitterly during the campaign—namely, the cheapening of the dollar, tlie depreciation of the currency. For a time we have had a 50 cens 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 Loril- [axd, the millionaire snuffmaker who for two years has been hobnobbing frith 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 Tailor and Draper, thlsjopportnnltj to order your Winter OTercott. r.

" If it were not for the socialistic forces,'' he says, "the United States wonld command millions of money now idle in Europe." It is ftinny to hear a snnff- maker complaining about "socialistic forces," bnt 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 extant in this conntry 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 thb worthy tobacconist who spends so- much of his time in Europe. Flower DoiIIe§.
