'He knew nothing flt hd i hi kt d' p g until he felt a hand in his pocket and' heard a voice which tie recognized as Cleary's speaMng to an accomplice, i hi t h i th t f ment of the twateh and tin plate in- dustries is cited as recent proofs of the advantages of the tariff in 'build- ing up home enterpris ening prices. Mr. Payne says that \a ;taible protective tariff on a fair basis results in a stable (market, continued employment and general prosperity.\ Turning to the subject ©f trusts the writer refers to the claim made in some quarters thiat the protective tariff is responsible for these combinations. He calls attention, to the remark of the president of the sugar combina- tion that the tariff is \the mother of trusts,\ adding that Mr. Havemeyer is also reported to have said that the tariff hlad no connection with tfce su- gar trust \This incongruous state- ment,\ Mr. Payne pointedly suggests, \only proves that the matter had not been thoroughly considered hj him 'before he made the statement.\ As a matter of fact a tariff has been exact- ed on refined 1 sugar for 75 years, and if th« tariff has any connection with trusts certainly the American Sugar Refining company is the chief benefi- ciary. The greatest trust in the country is the Standard Oil company, ©ut tihere never has been a tariff on oil. England is .a hotbed of trusts, despite the fact :hat she is a free trade country. To be sure our tariff law has stimu- lated and fostered our industries. It has helped to create a manufacturing business without a parallel in the world. In a word, it bias developed a magnificent business of (manufacture, without which there could be no eom- (ination of manufacturing interests because there would ibe nothing to combine. In no other sense can it he truthfully said that a protective tariff las had anything to do with the ori- gin,of trusts. Mr. Payne well adds: \If the result of free trade should be urging him to hurry in the act of stealing the money. Corrigan, al- \ (though aroused, made no outcry nor The develop- j offere d any ir esistance. He spofee to Officer Connors about 'five o'clodk in the morning, and together they hunt- ed Tip Cle&ry. When Cleary was placed on the stand, he (Claimed to have been the bartender at the Cumberland &t that time, and to have made three fizzes for Corrigan, not being able to make the fourth because of his supply of sugar becoming exlhaoisted. He made a Martini cocktail for his customer and then another and still a third. After drinking the third cooktedl, Corrigan left the room, and Cleary closed the bar. Going directly through the of- fice he saw no one, and met a friend on the veranda. Together they went to the Witlherill, and there met two men, with whom they drank for some time. Coming back they met Cofrri- I gan, who told \Cleary that he had been j robbed.

Every trust, except the oil com- bitfation, has an active competitor. The sugar trust has to cope with the Arbuckles and the beet sugar men. The steel trust has competitors whose nattne is legion and the nutenfber is in- sreasing every day. It now looks as if our capacity to ppeMJuce steel would iouble in the next two years. And :o on with the other combinations. Would it be reasonable to kill off ;hese growing concerns by ruthlessly striking off duties? Mr. Payne reasons tfhat until the be- lievers in the doctrine of state rights— the Democrats—will consent to an aimendment of the constitution giving congress fall control of trusts it looks is though congress were powerless to do anything iby reaon of any meth od which has thus far heen suggested of coping with them. The various states are not at present showing any great lesire to curtail'these great corpora- tions; in fact in those commercial states where large manufacturing in- terests exist t/here is a disposition at >resent clearly marked to make eor- mration laws very liberal. In Texas, !qr example, which led the anti-trust srusade of a few years ago since the liscovery of petroleum the severe pro- isions of the anti-corporate laws have »een put in a state of \innocuous dea- i etude.\ The Ibest remedy in the writer's udgtnent, is to stimulate coimpetiti on. The tariff laws can do this. Every mccessful corporation is an incentive o capitalists to engage In a similar >rianeh of business. Competition has regulated trade through the centuries. X is tie most potent force in com- neree today. It is destroying trusts abroad. It is keeping the level of fair prices here. Tlhe law of supply and demand will in the end do its perfect rork,.as it always has in the past, ir. Payne concludes: \We are larching mightily forwiard in the in- lustrial race. Along our course will ippear the wrecks of some great •omibinations, for no great trusts can indure umless they maintain fair prices and meet the competition of heir rivals,\ One Cent Postage, Third Assistant Postmaster General Madden thinks that the time is ahout here for a reduction of letter postage to one cent.

'1'he jur^, after due deliberfrtaon on the evidence produced, returned a verdict of not guilty. Everest & Signor, who have in a most coounendatble manner, piloted the defense oft this case, then moved for the discharge of Alexander, who is jointly indicted for the crime. The Districts Attorney objected to (the dis- charge and to an immediate trdal as it was almpst impossible tto secure an impartial jury from the remaining jurymen. Under these conditions the case was put over the term, and will be tried at Ithe spring term. The indictment against Frank Gar- rand iwas dismissed, as the District Attorney did not think it possible to oonviict the prisoner. Those who had been tried iby the court and who had pleaded guilty to the charges preferred against them were -e n arraigned and the sentences imposed. The first was Edward Perhans, and to tte regulation questions asked him by the county clerk, replied that he was a farmer and lumberman; was 25 yeavs of age; was born in Moira, FrankMn county, and that he was a sir.gle mana'rjd his parents were living, also that he\ was temperate, and had never before :been convicted.

In the case of Orlando Beede> (the Xeene lumberman and former Member Assembly, who filed a petition 4h bankruptcy, objections have ueen filed 'by John B. Riley, of Piattsburgh. Mr. Riley represents James E. SMeKelvey and H. E. Shoemaiker, receivers of the American Wood Working ifeidhine Co. and it is alleged that Beede failed to specify in hie Schedule of assets the stock of goods in a store at Keene which is valued-iat $2,000. It is also sharged that (the books of Beede twere cept in such a inanneir as to prevent lis true financial condition from being suown, and that since the adjudication n batfkrupltcy the books have -been al- tered and changed so tihat there is an aiptparent indebtedness to Beede's wife amounting to |8,00O and to Waltei 3, of Keene, to an amount exeeed- ng that specified on the books prior to the adjudication. It is also alleged that Mrs. Beede has put dn a claim for 18,000, and of this amount $5,000 is for ices performed as housekeeper for the petitioner. It is contended that this is not a just or valid claim agaihsit the bankrupt estlate. Mr. Beede will have twenty days to file an answer. Discharges in bankruptcy have been gramted. to Herman M.

She sang in a concert given in Ogdenshiirg in April, 1884, and the Daily Journal called her \the star oi the evening.\ \The repeated recalls, and the good will with which the young amateur responded, could (haru- ly satiate the greed of the audience.

Wiliiam Henderson, editor of the Faithful Witness of Toronto, read the scriptures, and Rev. E. O. Thatch- er of New York |poke in a reminiscent vein, especially /of Mr. Gibbud's early days. E. H. Aadrews of the Syracuse rescue mission, which Mr. Gibbud founded and remained 10 years in charge of, spoke of his personal in- fluence. Mr. Andrews, formerly a manager of one of the largest busi- nesses in Syracuse, was won by Mr Gibbud to an interest in the mission' and for 14 years has devoted all hi time, money and influence to the mission. By the same personality George Frank, who also was present yesterday, was won from those for whom the mission was founded to be- come now its assistant superintendent and an efficient mission worker. Mr Andrews told of the memorial servic< held in the First Presbyterian churcl at Syracuse Sunday, over which th< pastor, Rev. George B. Stpaulding, pre- sided, wttien the church was packed, and 20 pastors of the city sat on the' platform and s,poke words of tender eulogy and appreciation, and when though the service had lasted oven two hours, the people refused to de- part. S. H. Hadley of the Jerry McAulei mission, New York, told of Mr. Gib- bud's career as an all-night mission- ary in an appeal to a part of the 100 000 people who turn night into day r the metropolis. C. F. Ballou also spolk of Mr. Gibbud's work in New Yorl city, and cited examples to show how well he was remembered by people in the slums. E. Y. Wooley, of Paw- tucket, R. I., spoke of the man's pow- erful work as a trainer of other Chris- tian workers and as an organized oi a system of placing native mission- aries in the field. In the four years he had been in this city, he had plac- ed 1046 such on the field in India, China and Africa, and in that time, without solicitation, he had raised $24,696.75 for this cauei, the expense of transmitting which he had paid from money received for his own pub- lications. Rev. John T. Wilds, pas- tor of the Seventh Presbyterian church in New York city, said that he had received more help from the teaching, training and fellowship of Mr. Gibbud than from any other source. William R. Moody said that Mr. Gibbud ha< been the speaker in greatest deman< [>efore the Northfield conference; the E>eople refused to let him jro.

At a Meeting of the Choir of Trinity 3hurch, held on Tuesday evening, 3ecember 17, 1901, the following re- lolutions were adopted. The Choir of Trinity Church desire pait on record this minute of re- ;nce of Jeannette ISanford Gui- bord, for many years a most valued member of our choir. As the so- prano soloist, her duties were many and her voice in constant mse. She gave freely of her vocal talent and culture, and can literally be said to have been a \sweet singer of Israel.\ Always a 'mistress of song, she sang as naturally as the lark sings; and the many times that her voice has been the solace of the mourner, the comfort of tjhe desponding and the inspiration of the worshippers is not to be told here. With a God given talent, she devoted it to his worship. Without egotism or that musical jeal- ousy which sometimes afflicts sing- ers, all that was unmusical seemed to have been . entirely eliminated from her disposition and character; and so, sincerely singing the praises of her Heavenly Father, she passed on and out of life to sing in iflie Paradise of God. Of her life as wife and mother we have no need to speak, for it was an open book wherein was written in living letters, to be clearly read iby all, her eulogy: \the true help-mate of her husband.\ She was full of energy, kindliness, sincerity; and, next to God, devoted to her husband and children whom she loved with a love rare and intense, yet discrim- inating withal. We iwill not add to the husband's sadness, or cause ad- ditional tears to flow from tthe eyes of the motherless children, so suddenly bereft of her, by multiplying tear- laden words; but we desire to add to their tender love, their sweet re- membrance of her, our own senti- ments of deep sympathy with them; and, while we feel that even these words may seem, beside their own deep reeling, \but vacant chaff well meant for grain,\ we cannot refrain from telling them how much we lov- i her, too. Altihough laid to rest on this drear December day, yet does she slumber n a tomb bedecked with flowers; NOTFfF .n<d we feel that their bloom and n \ UIIW1 \ sweetness is typical of her who so Offlc e o f tiie Ausable Horse Nail iudidenly has left us to bask in j Company.
