"WEDNESDAY EVENING O AKT ASTP TEIBUNli SEPTEMBER .24." 1902 '9 OAKLAND Jribune Publishing Company j . FREE. TRADE THE ISSUE. Anti-imperialism appears to "be com pletely sidetracked as a campaign is sue. Forty days are yet to elapse before the election, yet nobody hears anything: about it on the stump or In the newspapers. 1 The logic of events has made the trusts and the tariff the dominant ia-,ue8 in the campaign and thrust all minor questions In the background.! .Trusts and tariff are corelated because the Democrats Insist on urging free trade as a remedy for trust evils. They do not say this, but their proposition is to take the duty off all trust made articles. Nearly, everything manufactured In this coutry is produced by a corporation, and all manufacturing corporations are trusts, according to bV Democratic lexicon. To fall-low out the Democratic program would be to expose every line of domestic industry to destructive foreign competition e j i The Republican position in regard to the trusts is admirably stated by President Roosevelt. He first discriminates between the trusts proper and the great mass of corporations organized for lawful and useful purposes, and ' then he advocates the . enactment pi laws that will enable the trusts to be brought under control. If such laws cannot be enacted as the Constitution cow stands, he advocates the adoption of a .Constitutional amendment authorizing the proposed remedial legislation. If there are any Inequalities in the tariff he proposes to regulate them by a readjustment of the' duties in such particular cases. This is a simple, directand practical method of dealing with the tariff-trust question. ; ' It is needless to say the Democrats reject everything advanced by the President. His suggestion that all corporations are not trusts is characterized as a defense of the trusts. His i proposition to amend the Constitution ; causes the old State Rights locofocos to hold up their hands in horror. Better the country suffer a thousand Ills than have the sacred principles ennmn- ' elated in the Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions of 1798 infringed a hair. ; What they want is free trade, cheap foreign goods and pauper competition. Having 4 been compelled to drop free silver and imperialism, the Democratic party reveals its atavistic tendency by harking back to its ancient heresy. STAND BY THE MERCHANTS' EXCHANGE. . The pledge of the ; Oakland Merch- yts".Exchange to raise one-fifth of the cost of driving the tunnel for the Con- ira osra roaa snouid ne. religiously i practiced in New York, and no au-kept. and the citizens of Oakland gen- j lhenticated case of it has occurred In ouvum icim iiauBe i, assistance possible in; carrying out the pledge. AVhlle the road will be a great w,. - w V ota county, an tne trade advantage V will be on the side of Oakland. That It will bring considerable business to thia city is conceded. ; For that reason f theNconstruction of the tunnel road Is . v. ; I In thpnnturA nf a nuhlir ntprnrlsif trt promote the growth and business Interests' of Oakland. ' : It is estimated that three-fifths oft the cost of the tunnel will fall on Contra Costa county. To be exact,! C14 teet of the tunnel must be run oiii the Contra Costa side to 43fi feet on' the Alameda side. To equalize this disparity of cost between the counties the Merchants' Exchange , agreed to raise the money to pay one-firih the cost of the work, leaving the remaining four-, fifths to be divided equally between the counties. The Supervisors of both counties have' authorized the necessary ex- V Ijpendlture, and it now becomes neccs- U sary for the Exchange to live up to Vits agreement. Something like $12,000 i Wllr nave to or prouurai vy me r.x ... . ' 1 1 A I T" i change,. and lesa than $4,000 of; the j tymount is flow in hand.

It was through their exertions that this long mooted project has at length been Drought to a point wnere its completion seems a certainty, and it la'4ue thent that the public lend a hand in carrying out the agreement on which the construction of the tunnel was authorized. The pledge imtist be kept, and the Merchants' Exchange should be assisted to keep it. A woman In Georgia was allowed to present at the execution of her ather's murderer. The newspaper ports say she laughed with joy as tldoomed wretch' swung writhing on therQfie.-'She was allowed to cut the corpse down and took a piece of the rope away with her as a memento of Mh horrible event.

And It ?asant to reflect that there are few ces in the country where such a s S& exhibItio.il would be tolerated. Ibe J TRIBUNE William E. Dargle. President A CASE IN POINT. ) The intensity of popular feeling on the subject of the trusts has again been illustrated by the enforced withdrawal of Banker George R. Sheldon as a candidate in New York. Mr. Sheldon, who had been slated by Senator Piatt for Lieutenant Governor, is intimately associated with trust organizations. Governor .Odell, who is one of the shrewdest men In American politics, discovered that Mr. Sheldon's nomination would endanger the success of the ticket and possibly -defeat it, and he therefore compelled Sheldon's withdrawal by announcing that he would decline to run in case the latter was nominated. There was no persona! objection to Mr. Sheldon whatever, only the public feeling that Is being manifested against trusts. Coming close on the heels of the Iowa platform and the refusal of Speaker Henderson to be a candidate on it, the New York incident is instructive. The attitude of the coal barons and the insistent demand of the President that laws to regulate and control the trusts be enacted, have combined to arouse the public mind on this great subject. Governor Odell realized that to nominate a trust magnate in New York would be an apparent slap at the President's professions and place the Republican party in a false position. Even so potent a leader as Senator Piatt was forced to give way before Governor Odell's ultimatum and the approval of it manifested by the Republican masses. It Is noteworthy that the friends of Roosevelt most earnestly backed Odell in the position he took. They fully realized the inconsistency of endorsing the President and denouncing trusts, and then nominating a man intimately connected with the trusts. BLOOD ATONEMENT FABLES. ! The public should not too readily accept the theory that the murder of Mrs. Pulitzer in New York was in pursuance of a Mormon religious rite. All the known facts warrant a different conclusion The woman's jewelry was found in a pawnshop. Your religious fanatic Is not usually a vulgar thief. Secondlj, the young man suspected of the crime, while of erratic temperament, is dissipated, and has been totably lax in the observances of his faith. So much- for that; but it seems incredible that religious fanatics of any sect, especially Mormons, who are very unpop-ufar in all sections of the country, should practice the Old Testament doctrine of blood atonement in a great city like New York, where discovery Is almost certain. If the doctrine is not practiced in Utah why should it be (Utah for thirty years. There is not eyen a suspicion of it ln the mind3 of t intelligent people well informed in re- -iorarri to Ttah X'n rimiht Prirrhom gard to Utah. No doub Young did in early days use the doc ! trine of blood atonement as a convex lent cloak for terrorizing recalcitrant followers and wreaking vengeance on such as opposed his rule, but there has been an enormous amount of exaggera tion about it, and since 1869 nobody ' has heard anything about it to speak of. For centuries the Jews were harried and persecuted, on the ground that they j practiced the rite of blood atonement. j JTne history of the middle ages is one . long record of barbarities prac- ' t:ced against the helpless chil , dren of Israel on the strength ; ,,f tilig accusation. "Within re- cent years popular outbreaks against the Jews in Southeastern Europe on this account have occurred. The more bigoted and superstitious the members of one sect are the readier they arfc to believe hideous calumnies against the members of the other sects. Popular feeling has always been strong against ''the Mormons, who, whatever their faults, have not escaped the penalties of exciting the pious prejudices- of ! others. j J ON CIVIC PRIDE, i ' Perhaps no one thing has done more to hold public Improvement in Oakland back than- the narrow, illiberal spirit which chooses to consider calling attention to a public need or'a municipal j shortcoming as an assault on the town. This city has progressed wonderfully of late years, but the progress has been due almost solely to private enterprise. The municipality has done little, com - .merce, manufacturing and shipping or,H or..rr.l, h,tt that note jvJcii--v v nv Ksvth vnaii expansion serves to emphasize the needs of the municipality, and to bring out in stronger relief the lack of improved streets, adequate public buildings, school accommodations and public parks. If a man is to be denounced" as- a public, enemy for favoring the acquisition of these things and being ! asharried of the City Hall, then the j hope of improvement is small Indeed. If the present City Hall is good enough for Oakland, then Oakland is content to be a shabby town. If the streets are satisfactory, then we are easily satisfied. If parks are unnecessary, then Oakland Is abundantly provided. The citizen who feels no shame because the streets of his city are in bad condition and the public buildings de-lapidated is not likely to see the ne cessity for improvement. Those who i: discern in an expressed desire for im- j provement only disloyalty to the town can scarcely be relied on to lead in progressive movements. PERSONAL AND SOCIAL NOTES MRS.

I am Informed that for a time he signed himself and Was known by his proper name, but subsequently adopted the name of Lawrence Bartlett or Barrett His relatives here in St. Louis last heard from him about a year ago, when his addiress was given as No. 70 Ninth street, San Francisco, Calif. A number of let!rs have been addressed to that address in both names, but the letters have invariably been returned on the 1st iivst. I wrote chief George W. Wltitman of San Francisco, and am today in receipt of a letter ln which he advises me that a family by the nam of Barrett formerly lived at No. 70 Ninth street, but recently moved to your city, locating on Adeline street, number not given. "My purpose in writing you this letter is this: Mr. Korzen dorter's brother Bernard Korzendorfer died in this city some time ago, leaving a considerable estate in which Lorenz is interested to the extent of about J20.000. If we can find him. or if he is dead, his heirs will be entitled to this inheritance. I would be obliged to you, therefore, if you will give this matter such publicity as lies in your power and advise me whether Korzendorfer or Bartlett or Barrett, as he was subsequently known. Jives in Oakland, or if he has di-ei within the last year, whether or not he left a widow or children. "A reply to this inquiry at your convenience will greatly oblige, yours very truly, "ARTHUR E.
