successful contest to break the will of Samuel J Tilden Another instance in point came to light last week when the generous purpose of the late Chief Justice Paxson of Pennsylvania was balked by a flaw in the will which he himself had drawn He devised 1500000 to a charity for the benefit of boys The intent was plain but the will was invalidated and the money went to the testators relatives as soon as it appeared that the document had not been witnessed as required by the Pennsylvania law If a jurist of such standing could not make his own will proof against contest the average layman who

Ownershipjj The editor of Humanity is aI brainy man Although he gets oil on some things even in his criticism of those things which we approve he shows that be is a man of brains that his ideas are original and that he fears not to express his opinion even though the whole world may be against him Writing on Govern Meat Ownership in the April Issue he says To be alone for an opinion isI not to be a fool This magazine long I since pointed out that railroad agita I ties was la reality the whetting of the pubHc appetite for government 1 ownership candy I personally have 1 gone even further and announced I that most of the bowl against the railroads was being engineered byII those who control the various tranlI portatitn systems of this country In the columns of the few really inde pendent papers we now see the same theory offered as an explanation of the peculiar nativity In railroad securitiesLet nation own the trusts but be very careful that In the trans fer the trusts do not in reality buy the nation and that Is what It means if the government at this time pur chases the railroads Every lOOnI who owns any railroad stocks orI bonds very naturally stands ready to exchange them or government securities The evolution of the railroad has ceased We have not seen a new invention that might at all benefit the railroads for at least ten years It is certain that the limit of speed at which trains can be safely run has been reached and from thei number of wrecks It may be assum ed by some has been passed It is a fact that the railroads are not able to successfully handle the freight of this country today and some of the most prominent railroad men have publicly asserted that they will never be able to put the rail roads in such condition that our enormous traffic can be satisfactorily and expeditiously transported Would it be advisable for the government to take over and attempt to put them upon a respectable operating basis The expenditure that would be necessary precludes the possibility of their ever being operated by the government at a profit but then governmentally owned utilities should not beconsid ered in the light of profit payin InstitutionsA Is operated for the benefit of the people and not for the exploitation of its citizens yet either directly or indirectly under govern ment control or not the people will have to pay the cost of transportation With our rapidly growin- internal commerce the box car is too small a unit No one knows thisI better than the present railroad l magnates and therefore they ver naturally arc putting forth eve effort to get rid of property that 1isI rapidly becoming less and lessI valuable before the pecple come to see the matter as those do w- hr o r r t i l Y happen to be at this time in posses sion of the inside Information IfWe could by purchase acquire the railroads it would not be a solu lion of our present transportation difficulties Fifteen or twenty men today virtually own every mile of steel rails In operation in the United States TOIl years more and one man will supplant this small coterie and it would take all of such a period of time for us to arrange the purchase This one man would under such circumstance absolutely bold in his possession the credit of this government We as a people would have purchased something of little value Lut the price paid would be equivalent to bondage for our selves and our children forever The solution of the question is not in government ownership nor in state ownership and we have gone far enough in government control but it lies in the building of an enor motes system of deep waterways upon which can move vessels with suftcient capacity to satisfy the needs of our rapidly growing com merce The railroads would remain as coders and therefore can just as well be left in the hands of their present owners wbo are better able to reap the whirlwind which they themselves sowed when they inflated the values of their holdings to make

takes a very sensible view of matters when it comments upon certain matters concerning the welfare of a com munity It Is best in all instances to work in harmony and no matter whet the Q circumstances all parties concerned are benefited more in thus doing and no one is benefited by continu Otis quarreling The Courier says Taking part of an editorial squib in The Courier as a text the East Prairie Eagle preaches a sermon about Charlestons decadent trade It is perhaps natural for the Eagle men to boost their own town and think or say there is no other like it under the shining sun We say this Is natural It gets its bread and meat from the people down there and is not to be blamed for a little blarney and occasional blasts of hot air But we do object to any invidi ous comparisons between Charleston I and East Prairie There is nothing gained by such comparisons If there is any advantage in natural resources in railroad service in large and well selected stocks of of merchandise it is oa the side of Charleston There is but one ad vantage that is with East Prairie and that is that most of the merchants there advertise Our merchants could do the same and doubtless will but they have three newspapers asking for patronage where East Prairie has one and so advertising is sometimes diminished sometimes cut out entirely to avoid discrimination We do not believe this iis good business and we believe- th merchants lose more than the papers do by such policy but they are the doctorpBut East Prairie has many natural advantages and is not to be blame for making the most of them The Eagle Is an East Prairie institution and is not to be blamed for boosting lie own town We hope it will but it is not necessary to knock Charles ton in order to do it nor do we thin it good judgment or good business to do so jTherefor ton capital invested in East Prairie and if it were withdrawn the loss might be seriously felt Our interdests are common and one city need not be jealous of the other and j should not There Is room for both We do not Intend to knock EatI1 I Prairie and would suggest that ther Eagle direct its attention to boost Ing I The State Development Conven tioa sad the

children aged from six i months to seven years perished in t the flames j The home was located near the Tennessee line about 50 yards from the electric light plant s- It is thought that the fire originat ed from the explosion of a lamp in the house Mrs Haddad was there with her seven children her husband being out in the city at the time It required the combined effort of five strong men to carry the wo man from the house She was craz ed from grief and excitement She had succeeded in rescuing three of the children from the hot flames and they also were badly burned It was impossible to rescue the four smaller children and the mother had to stand by and see their forms disappear by the furious heat Mr Haddad when he arrived on the scene was frantic and a force of men had to hold and tie him to prevent him from running into the burning building after his children It was a most horrible and pathet ic scene and pot a parallel of the heartrending affair is known in this part of the country He bad saved up a neat sum By peddling merchandise and it is said had 1000 in the bouse when it was burned Excursion On J S Wednesday May 8th there will be run a moonlight excursion on the
