MUNICIPALUNAVICC By JOHN KENDRICK BANGS Over In Boston a little while ago they put a successful undertaker In charge of the supplies department with the result that the Hub has been buying inferior grade coal at high trade prices and the honorable super intendent didnt know It until the facts Investigatingwmmlttee prised and for two reasonsfirst a man may be a first rate undertaker and know the quality of what he puts Into the ground without necessarily being an expert on what comes out of tho ground and second Boston should have known what we all knowthat- an undertaker Is not the right kind ot- a man to have charge of a civic coal plant Under the most approved mu- nIcIpal ownership ventures It is the custom to have such things attended to by milliners and delicatessen men k k Matthew Arnold ought to be a popu lar author with those municipal owner ship advocates who believe that a gas works can be successfully managed by a confectioner He wrote an essay once on sweetness

satisfaction to both mourners and to the deceased Just how this would work in this country we cannot say Philadelphia would doubtless make a first class undertaker as would also Boston but we fear New

Worlds Most Conspicuous Sover signs and a Monarch Well Loved Stockholm Dec 9Oscar II King of Sweden died at 910 oclock Sunday morning aged seventyeight years nine months and seventeen days The death of the monarch occurred in the royal apartment of the palace where surrounded by the members of his family includag the queen Sophia and the crown prince Oscar Gustave and high ministers of state the Inevit able end had been awaited while out side the palace great crowds stood with bowed heads and tearful eyes long after the announcement came of tho death of their beloved sovereign The succession to the throne oo Sweden now passes to Oscar Gustav- Adolphe Prince of Vermland the old est son of the late king At a meeting of the council of state Sunday after noon the new king took the oath allegiance under the title of otII V and adopted the motto With People for the Fatherland The princes then took the oath of allegi ance and the new monarch accepted the homage of the state officials Under King Oscar Swedens stability and progress have been uniform until the events culminating in the recent separation of Sweden and Nor way The final success of tho separa lion was a grievous blow to the aged king Both his pride and heart were wounded and his constant brooding over this unhappy event doubtless con tributed to his death Indeed the doc tors final diagnosis that his heart was affected appears to give color to the earlier reports that he was slowly dying of a broken heart Politically however neither Sweden nor Norway Is likely to be disturbed by King Os cars demise since each has now ad justed Itself to the new order of affairs and the change of monarchs may ameliorate the relations between Swe den and Norway as the new kings son who now becomes crown prince is united by marriage to the queen of Norway The new King Gustave much resembles his father in gigantic stat ure and in light Saxon blonde features The young monarch is not unused to the cares of state as ho has frequently acted as regent during the illness and absence of his father and has dill played good sense and ability He is personally much liked at Stockholm and at other capitals where he is regarded as having his fathers charac teristics of sincerity and sympathy Two Men and a Woman lola Kan Dec 9Wllllam Stewart proprietor pf a restaurant and member of a prominent family was brutally

when such is the cose for people to hoard money instead of keeping it in sound banks N Provision should be made for an emergency currency The morgoncy issue should of course be made with an effective guaran y and upon conditions carefully prescribed by the government As to the railways in my judgement there should be either a national incorporation act or a law licensing railways to engage in interstate commerce upon certain conditions Until the national government assumes proper control of inter state commerce in the exercise of the authority it already possesses it will be impossible either to give or to get from the railways full justice In my judgement there should be additional legislation looking tythe proper control of the great business concerns engaged in interstate commerce this control to be exorcised for their own benefit and prpsporty no less than for the protection of investors and the general public It is profoundly immoral to put or keep on the statute books a law nominally in the interests of public morality that really puts a premium on public immorality by undertaking to forbid honest men from doing what must be done under modern business conditions The antitrust law should not be repealed but it should be mado bothmore efficient and more in harmony with actual conditions The antitrust law should not prohibit combinations that do no injustice to the public still less those the existence of which is on the whole of benefit to the public Among thd points to be aimed at in antitrust legislation should bo the prohibition of unhealthy competition such as by rendering service at an actual loss for the purpose of crushing out competition the prevention of iinflation of capital and the prohibition of a cor porations making exclusive trade with itself a condition of having any trade with itself When an individual mortgages his house to buy an automobile ho invites disaster and when disaster and when a wealthy man or men bo pose as such or are ui scrupulously or foolishly eager to become zch indulge in reckless speculationespecially if it is accompanied by dishonesty they jeopardize not only their own future but the future of their innocent fellow citizens for they expose the whole business community to panic and distressrWe have not the slightest sympathy with that socialistic idea whichwould try to put laziness tbriftlessness and inefficiency on a par with industry thrift and efficiency whichwould strive to break up not merely private property but what is far more important the home the chief prop upon which our whole civilization stands A few years ago there was a loud complaint that the law could not be invoked against wealthy offenders There is no such complaint now The two great evils in the execution of our laws today are sentimentality and technicality For the latter tho remedy must come from the hands of the legislatures the courts and the lawyers The other must depend for its cure upon the gradual growth of a sound public opinion This country is definitely committed to the protective tariff sys tem and any effort to uproot it could not but cause widespread indus trial disaster But in a country of such phenomenal growth as ours it is probably well that every dozen years or so tho tariff laws should be carefully scrutinized so as to see that no excessive or im proper benefits are conferred thereby that proper revenue is provided and that our foreign trade is encouraged I sNATURE PROVIDES FOR SICK WOMEN a more potent remedy la the root sad kerb of the field than was ever

against the mountain juries in the trials of some of these Hargis feud cases The jury in the former trial of French atBeattyville stood eight for conviction and four for acquit al This jury was a mountain jury from Wolfe county At the beginning of the present trial objections were made either by the Commonwealth the defendant to selecting a jury from every county adjacent to Lee countyAfter considering a place to select a juryJudge Dorsoy passed over all the mountain counties and went to the Bluegrass county of Madison the home of Senator McCrearyand selected a jury No better body of men ever appeared in court nor was any cleaner trial ever had French was acquitted andafter the trial the bar of Lee county took the following action At a meeting of the Beattyville bar held at the court house in Beattyville Ky on the 28th day of November 1907 at the close of the regular term of the Lee circuit court and on motion of Hon J K Roberts Hon Kobt Biddell was called to the chair and G W Cann was made secretary of the meeting Thereupon Hon J K Roberts offered the following re solution which was unanimousily adoptedThat the bar of Lee county and lawyers and attorneys practicing at said bar endorse the able and impartial manner in which the the Hon John L Dorsey of Hen derson Ky has presided as spec ial judge in the case on trial at the present term of court styled the Commonwealth

Doe 3Both houses of congress convened today to hear th e presidents message This proved of the most voluminous document- over handed down from the White House but its reading was followed closely by the members who held printed copies of the same while threading e was going on From the close attention paid to tho numerous sub divisions of the message it was evident that President Roosevelts sev oral recommendations wore bein thoughtfully considered Among tho suggestions contained f that voluminous document are the fol lowingThe founders of the constitution provided that the national government should have complete and sole control of interstate commerce Only the na tional government can in thorough going fashion exercise the needed con trol There should bo nn extension of federal activity This is not advocat ing centralization It is merely look- Ing fnota In the face There must be no halt In the healthy constructive course of action which this nation has elected to pursue The federal courts must decide ultimately what are the respective spheres of state and nation In connection with any law In my Judgment there should now be either a national Incorporation act or Ii law licensing railway companies to engage In interstate commerce upon curtain conditions There should be additional legislation looking to the proper control of the great business concerns engaged in interstate busi nOM Uxperlence has definitely shown not merely the unwiadntn but the fu tility of endeavoring to put a stop to all buelting combinations Modern industrial conditions are such that combination Is not only necessary but Inevitable The antl trust law should not be repealed lint It shoul be made both more efficient and more In harmony with actual condltlona This snould be

recent business crisis It is noteworthy that the Institutions which failed were Institutions which were not under tho supervision and control of tho national government Those which were under national
