The Beef Trust Defiant.
UNDETERRED by federal
prosecution, the "beef trust"
is marching: on. Steps are
being taken to buy up and
consolidate in a giant securities hold
ing company all the plants now in com
petition with the Armours, Swifts and
Kelson Morris. Thus far only the pre
liminary moves have been made, but
they point unerringly to the merger.
It Is predicted by those familiar with
packing company values and methods
that the capitalization of tho combine
will have to be not less than $150,000,000,
in order to bring In properties now on
the outside and at tho same time af
ford proper "compensation" to the or
ganizers. Technical denials of an intention to
effect a merger have been Issued by
the magnates, but these appear to have
little weight among tho wiseacres; and
the announcement last week by the
president of the G. H. Hammond com
upany that J. Ogden Armour, now the
head of the house and family of Ar
mour, had "purchased a substantial
interest" in that concern, following
closely the purchase by the Swifts of
the Anglo-American and Fowler Bros,
interests and the acquisition by the
Armours of another "substantial in
terest" in the Omaha Packing com
pany, leaves little doubt as to whither
these moves point.
Legally It Is difficult to see how such
purchases can bo enjoined. There is
talk of legal attack on the ground that
the purchases are In the direction of a
monopoly and therefore opposed to
public Interest. Possibly when the
merger shall have been completed and
application made for tho incorporation
of a securities holding company force
might be imparted to this claim; but
so long as the Inter-purchases of stock
are individual there seems no way In
which the state can intervene. A de
cidedly different stutus exists with ref
erence to tho power of congress over
interstate commerce. A packing mo
nopoly could hardly fall to demand
'concessions from tho common carriers,
thus pxposlng Itself to attack; and tho
Sherman law empowering the federal
government to seize and confiscate
goods in transit upon proof of viola
tion of the Interstate commerce law-
presents another considerable safe
guard. The sure thing about this whole
qucbtlon is that no trust is smart
enough permanently to outwit and im
pose upon the American people. The
legal talent in the trust's employ will
at some stage ho matched by outside
talent fully bb good or better; and the
arrogance of the man at the top, think
ing himself master of all ho surveys,
generally supplies tho opening neces
sary to the accomplishment of his
downfall. All this by purely natural
law, regardless of what may come of

Sun Spots and the Weather.
13 HAVE been expecting
that tho singular weather
of the past few months
without precedent, It la
said, since 1S18 would call forth re
newed activity from tho sun spot man.
jvnd hero It Is;
jIn the Monthly 'Weather Review for
Jftirll, 100.', Prof. A. "Wolfer, of Zurich,
Switzerland, publishes a tabic showing
He relutlve number of sun snots that
tjijiVQ bqen, observed ench month since
ranuary, 1718. Tho numbers In the
table have 'been plotted, and from the
serves it appears thut the so-called
tdeven-yeur period, that is,' the time
oetween successive occurrences o
maximum or minimum numbers ot
ijjots, is not a uniform Interval, but
jBjS varied, since 174!), between 0.0 years
nd 13.6 years. The duration of tho
period of increase of sun spots after a
xRnlmum, us also the durutlon of the
jsn'fvi of.depreuau.ptei; a maximum,
also shows a variation. Dr. Norman
Lockycr, of England, thought Ihe far
mer had a cycle of thirty-five years,
but Wolfer finds evidence that the
periods of both Increase and decrease
have cycles of fltty-nvo years, and that
the ratio between the two hns tho same
cycle, lie also finds that n short period
of Increase Is followed by a high maxi
mum of relative sun-spot numbers.
To those who may artlrm that this Is
not altogether clear, wo say It Is n
clear to them as to us. The sun-soot
theory nssumes that solar radiation Is

The Better Way.
ENATOR O. H. PLATT, the
author of tho famous appen
dix to the constitution of Cuba
under which American super
vision Is ass'ured in the Interest of sta
bility, good order and faithful per
formance of treaty obligations, dis
cusses with much earnestness in the
August number of the North American
Review the nature and strength of
"Cuba's Claim Upon the United
In the very act of delivering Cuba
from the oppressive rule of Spain,
Senator Piatt insists, we became re
sponsible for the establishment, and
the maintenance as well, of good gov
ernment there. Since the termination
of the war, there has never been any
question that the economic relations be
tween Cuba and the United States are
as Important as their political relations;
and when the United States required of
Cuba that her constitution should con
tain guaranteces which should fovcrer
connect her Intimately with us. It wa3
universally understood that the United
States would in leturn provide such re
ciprocal commercial advantages as
would enable Cuba to be self-reliant
and self-supporting. The failure of
congress to make this understanding
good has left tho United States In a
deplorable position before the world.
Senator Piatt argues that there Is no
foundation for the fear that conces
sions to Cuban sugar would interfere
with the protection of our own sugar
producers, since no such effect follows
the introduction into the American
market of Hawaiian and Porto Rlcan
sugar. But the United States has never
been a faith-breaker, and wo shall not
assume that role at this lato date. Says
"Friends of Cuba In the United
States have appealed from the mistaken
sentiment ot a few of Us legislators to
the American people. That the appeal
will not be in vain there are many
hopeful signs. There is such a thing as
public conscience In this country, nnd
when once aroused it is all-powerful.
The Republican conventions of those
states from which objections to this
legislation were most strongly urged,
have shown, by tcsolutions adopted by
them, that even in those states the
heart of the people Is right. Wherever
our true-hearted and courageous presi
dent speaks for justice to Cuba and the
performance of national obligations,
the people lespond as to no other sen
timent which he utters. It will only
need a reassembling of congress to de
monstrate that our policy with regard
to Cuba Is not to be finally obstructed
by groundless fear or senseless preju
dice; that our plighted faith Is to bo
observed; that tho United States Is still
to be the generous friend, tho strong
protector and unselfish guardian of the
Cuban people; that the republic of
Cuba is to bo permanently maintained;
that tho pledge of the United States Is
not to bo violated, cither in letter or In
spirit; that no movement for the an
nexation ot Cuba Is to be started or
supported here; but that, as time goes
on, Cuba, free and Independent, guided
and aided by us In the realization of
her dream of liberty, will continue and
remain an object lesson to all nations
of tho high purpose und noble action ot
tho United States."
Contrast with this enlightened nnd
generous view of the relations which
should prevail between this country
and Its foster-child the following pic
ture of tho condition of affairs develop
ing In tho island since thu failure of
our congress to keep faith with tho
Cuban people plunged them Into des
pondency, suspicion and want. It Is
drawn by Major George M, Barbour,
for four years and until recently sani
tary commissioner of Santiago:
"Tho country Is really in a bad way,
Tho times aro hard, terribly hard, and
I see no reason to think they will Im
prove. ' The cities of Santiago and
Havuna, which our people mada clean
and wholesome, aro again falling back
Into tho old unsanitary conditions that
prevailed under Spanish rule, The peo
ple are once more throwing slops Into
tho streets and eve long pic foul smells
that were banished by the Americana
will pollifte the atmosphere of tho
towns. It Is pitiable to think that tho
splendid educational system that we
Inaugurated for them will not be kept
up, but that cause I fear Is doomed
along with other public necessities,
With a threatened deficit of several
millions, there will be no way of main
taining tho schools, and the old era of
Ignorance will return." .
Annexation, of course, will come. It
Is Inevitable eviu'ally. But tow much
better shouPU come through spon
taneous renueat of the Cuban people,
after generous satisfaction of their as
piration for separate nationhood than
to have It come through stem cconomlo
compulsion, like an International re
ceivership. A dispatch frorri Worcester, Mass., In
tho New York Herald tells of a dis
covery which, If truly reported, Is of
very considerable Industrial Import
ance. It asserts that William H. Whit
ney of Clark university has found a
solder which Is effective between pieces
of aluminum. Heretofore tho lack of
this has been the one drawback to a
more general utilization of this light,
strong and useful motul. The Whitney
solder, It Is said, can bo applied with
an iron, and Is so effective that pieces
of wire attached together by It will
break before the solder Itself will yield.
General Uragg sticks to his point that
ho bad a perfect right to write to his
wife any opinion ho pleased concern
ing tho Cubans. That cannot bo gain
said. But It Is equally true that tho
Cubans have n perfect right to object
to tho presence In an olllclal capacity
among them of an American who bus
no better sense of official propriety
than to make grossly offensive phrases
about them. Bragg may have told the
truth bluntly, but If ho wants to tell all
ho knows In tho roughest manner pos
sible he should get out or be put out of
Uncle Sam's consular service.
General Jacob H. Smith went
through forty years of hardship In tho
military service of his country, only to
be cast roughly aside on account of one
slip of tho tongue. Had he been in
stead a successful promoter, he might
have boodled a thousand councils and
gotten by stealth and trickery mil
lions of dollars and he would today be
cock of the walk. Human Justice is
sometimes oddly fashioned.
Bandit Tracy feels that it will be nec
essary for him to rob a bank and hold
up a train In order that a proper pace
may be kept up. The meagre news
paper accounts of his, transactions at
present are certainly somewhat dis
couraging for one of his enterprise.
Beginning Aug. 1, tho central govern
ment In Cuba abandoned street clean
ing and sanitation in cities, relegating
these tasks to tho various municipal
governments. Let us hope that the
latter will prove equal to them.
The striking grave diggers of Chi
cago have timed their tie-up with re
markable sagacity. There beems no
better time for a cemetery strike than
at a period when the high price of coal
will make cremation expensive.
The theory that war time means high
wages finds no confirmation in Eng
land. In that country last year, ac
cording to an official report, the aver
age aggregate wage disbursement fell
$400,000 a week.
With usual enterprise Mr. Bailey, of
circus fame, states that the recent ilood

Editor ot Tho Tribune
Sir: In an editorial on Saturday last
you glvo us tho Interesting news that Mr.
Carnegio has presented tho Acton library,
which ho recently purchased, to John
Morley. Toward tho close of tho urtlclo
you hay: "Although he succeeded James
Anthony Froudo as historical lectin or nt
Oxford, etc." Lord Acton did not huccccd
Froudo, but was professor of modem his
tory at Cambridge, thus being Miceobsor
to Sir John Scelcy, and Charles Kingslcy.
The Regnh piofchsorshlp of modern hls
toty at Oxford has been held by Stubbs,
Freeman, Froude, and ut present by Mr.
F. Yoik Powell. You alt.0 speak of
Lord Acton as the pupil ot Raukc;
tho teachers who wcio believed to
have been mobt Influential with
him were Cardinal Wiseman and Dol
llugcr. Is Moiibeh a proofreader's or
typesetter's blip for Mommson? That
Lord Acton was tho "silent partner of
Gardiner In his historical researches" be
longs, I fear, in the category of things
"important If true."
