BRYAN AND TRUSTS.
There is such a thing as imper
ialism, for example the imperial
government ot China, bnt imper
ialism as candidate Bryan applies
it to Americanism is worse than
child's talk, for children don't
know, and Bryan has reached that
age and stage of experience and
knowledge when he should and
does know better. Again, there
are such things as trusts, bnt here,
as with imperialism Bryan is off
when he denounces the republican
party as being a party of trusts.
He does not draw the proper dis
tinction. He is not fair enough to
tell his hearers that trusts are bus
iness organizations and not politi
cal organizations. The trusts are
business rings.and the most com
plete rings that men have ever or
ganized. The business rings are
dominated in part by boards of
trade who have their head-quarters
in the cities where they sit ia pal
atial offices and control the prices
of business. Mr. Bryan has not
enough money to buy a s?at as a
member of a loard of trade in New
York city the head center of all
the trust and business rings in the
country. There is no politics in
their business matters. They have
neither politics or religion. They
are like a fish destitute of senti
ment or affection that will devour
its own stawn to accomplish its
purpose. Every 6tore in Juniata
county and every store in the
United States is run by a trust
ring, and so thoroughly organized
is the trust ring that the store
keepers cannot buy a spool of
thread or yard of calico under the
price list price that is sent there
every few days. . That isn't poli
tics. That is business ring work.
You can't buy a tomb-stone for
your mother's grave or your
child's grave or your husband's or
wife's grave, that has been exempt
from the clutch of the trust ring.
The business ring fixes the price at
the quarry and your local dealer is
as helpless as you are as to
regulation of first cot. It is even
so with coffins, and when Mr. Bry
an has gone the way of all flesh,
the business trust ring will have
received its quota for the coffin
that will be furnished to him by
the local dealer, for the local dealer
must stand and deliver the trust
ring price in the first cost, and
when a tomb-stone is placed over
his grave, it will be furnished un-
icr tne price ot the trust ring
price. That s business and not
politics. Mr. Bryan is as much
off on trusts as he is on imperial
ism. Sugar, coal oil, gas and ev
ery other article of large consump
tion is dominated in its price
by the trust rings. Some
times the price of this or that may
be higher or lower, according to
the supp and demand, but all the
same the business ring gets its divy
and that is business ani not poli
tics. When 40 different groceries in
as many different places in Philadel
phia are run by a trust ring that is
business. When a dozea doctors
have organized in Pittsburg, each
for a certain district and a drug store
for each doctor, that is trust ring
work. When a score of dentists
have organized and run the tooth
pulling and i tooth-repairing busi
ness in many towns and cities that
ia trust ring work for which the
republican party is not more re
sponsible than the man in the

Mifflintown, and received the dona
tion of a lot of ground on tbe east
side near tbe south end of 3rd street
from John Harris, and there erected j
a leg cburcb. The building wa
completed in 1812. Tbe size of the j

prosperity. The coogregation bad
acquired property, real estate and a
oomrnodious and handsome brick
parsonage on the north-west corner
of the square had been purchased.
Under Boyer'a ministry a ner brick
church was built in the year 1838.
The corner stone cf the new church

were placed in tbe cornerstone of
the church building of 1838, a copy

church built by preacher Boyer, was
a basement room for the Sabbath
School; but tbe 6chool grew large
and bad to be taken up-ataird into
tbe preaching room. The school at
this time is a live and large organiza

of the pressing requirements of tbe
coming generation and had much to
do with the urgency for a new

" Tr; T ' p Ktflr.t whiph -p.
Mrs. Dr. John P. Sterrett wwen ap- (
peered in last week's issue of the Sen- .
tin el. and REPr blicax. There is a
bealthy awakening on the part of men
and women who have "done things" to ,
belone not to themselves, but to tneir,"
fellowmen. Thisscense of moral re-
ponsibility cannot fail to be a valuable
aid in "chftracter-bulldlnK." aliKe io
those who are forging a Career ana to
those who are to come after them.
Until very recently men and women
have been content to neglect prepara
tion of reliable material for their biog
raphies, trusting to some gifted analyst
and historian of the future to "set them
right" before the world. But why
should a man who jealously guards his
character throughout life be so careless
of his after-death reputation ? Reliza
tion of this inconsistency, and appre
hension of appearing in a false light,
together with the conviction that every
man who has achieved distiction owes
something to posteritv, are working a
great reform in this respect. As a con
sequence, it is becoming quite tbe thing
for relatives of a man lately deceased
to print and circulate privately amongst
his friends a ''Memorial," which is us
ually a biography, and frequently an
autobiography, of the person whose
deeds and traits it is 'ought to cherish.
A step in advance of this is the inno
vation of having such record of a man
handsomely printed and bound while
the subject is yet living. As a library
table adornment it is novel and incom
parable, and there is manifest no more
personal vanity in placing sucb a souve
nir convenient to the hand of tbe wait
ing guest than there is in hanging a
painted portrait against the wall. '
Wh v should good words ne'er be said
Of a man till he is dead ?
It is iu this spirit that I venture to
re-introduce to the people of Juniata
county a man who was well known
throughout Tuscarora Valley forty years
ago ; whose ancestry was illustrious,
and whose pedigree is traceable back to
a King of England ; whose individual
career has been notable, and whose life
from boyhood has been that of an en
ergetis, useful, consistent Christian.
James G. Anderson, now a resident
of Wilkmsburg, a superb of Pittsburgh,
was born in Eafct Waterford, September
1M, 1832. Tbe kitchen of the house in
which he was born is now used as-a
station building by the Tuscarora Val-,
ley Railroad Company at East Water-1
ford. His father, Enoch L. Anderson,
lived in that vallage for many years.
His grandfather and his great-grandfather
also bore the name Enoch L.
Anderson, and his genealogical tree
reaches back to Andreas Anderson, who
married a daughter of King James I, of
England. Mr. Anderson has a large
number of autograph letters and much
documentary evidence bearing on this
point, and if he ever revisits Juniata
county he should be induced to deliver
a lecture based on tbe authenticated
historical information at bis command.
Mr. Andereon is an hereditary ' mem
ber of the Society of the Cincinnati,
probably the most exclusive order in
the United States, The Society now
is comparatively large, but of all its
living members there are but 80 in
Peiinsj lvania who were admitted under
the principles of its inception, that of
heritage, and of these Mr. Anderson is
one. 1 his distinguished privilege was
derived from his grandfather. Col.
Enoch L Anderson, of the Revolution
ary army, who was born May 1, 1754,
and died at the age of 76. With him
in the army were three brothers, of
whom one, Joseph Anderson, afterward
became the first Treasurer of the United
States. In all, Colonel Anderson took
part in 13 battles, including those of the
Brandy wine, Wilmiugton.jLong Isla'd,
Staten Island, White Plains, German-
town, and a battle on the Delaware in
which be was iu command. I have seen
a number of these letters, which arc care
fully preserved by Mr. Anderson. The
handwriting is scrupulously neat and
legible, the construction and language
are scholarly, and with charming mod
esty Colonel Anderson tells of his soldier
life from the age of 19 until the close of
the war, when be found himself a
Although James G. Anderson, tbe
subject of this sketch, bad an eventful
career through the oil country in the
early days, he is best known to and
remembered by thousands as a working
Christian. For 34 years be has been an
Elder in the Presbyterian church. For
nine years be was thus honored by the
congregation or the Second Presbyterian
church, corner of Penn Avenue and
Seventh street, Pittsburgh. Last April
be removed to Wilkinsburg, where he
connected himself with the First Pres
byterian church. On the eve of his de
parture his old Pittsburgh friends and
co-workers assembled at his house, and
presented valuable gifts to himself and
every member of bis family. Duriug
bis connection with tbe Second cburcb
Mr. Anderson was the chief reliance ef
Pastors Frank DeWitt Talmage (a son
of the famous Rev. Dr. T. DeWitt Tal-
mege) and S. Edward Young. In
Evangelical work be has probably been
tbe most active Presbyterian in Pitts
burgh throughout the past ten years,
and in all his oil-country experience he
was similarly a tireless worker. He
bears a striking personal resemblance to
the late Dwigbt L. Moody, and has
much of that famous man's simplicity,
earnestness, force of effectiveness.
Mr. Anderson's loyalty to Juniata
people and thi ngs is remarkable. I was
first drawn to him by tbe manner In
which he spoke of my revered grand
father, the Rev. Matthew Allison, and
of tbe Rev. Dr. Thompson. His affec
tion for the memories of these Btalwart
Christians of the old school amounts
almost to adoration. One of the stories
which he told me is worth reproducing :
"I am rather proud," said Mr. Ander
son, of having organized the first Pres
byterian Sabbath School at East Water-
ford, about 1W9 or 1850 Tne Metno
diets already had such an organisation,
of our own. We first met in tbe school

however, is or uavia . aiov imams,
who you tell me is now with the Tus-
carora fnospaate company at fort
Royal, and his brother. Then there
was young David Barton and a son o
RobertBarton ; three Drolesbaugh boys;
James Deen ; James Louden, a brother
of ex-Sheriff Samuel B. Louden, and
John Smith that's ten, I think. Rev.
Andrew Jordan was the venerated
pastor of the East Waterford Pres
byterian church when I first became a
member of it"
Mr Anderson left Juniata county in
1860, going to Greenville, Mercer county,
where he engaged in farming. It was
at this place that he was first elected an
Elder. In 1848 the oil excitement at
tracted him to Petrolum Centre, where
he went to work in the field for his j
b rot ber, ueorge 14. Anderson, men a
large operator, soou becoming his Su-
perintendent. In 1876 Mr. Anderson
removed to Parker's Landing.
During his experience as Superinten
dent and operator be drilled through
the Oil Creek, Parker's Landing, Rlch
burg (N. Y.), Bradford, Cherry Grove
and Thorn Creek fields, and was re
garded as one of the most expert pros
pectors and developers in thcoil regions.
He did not operate on such an exten
sive scale as his brother, George K.,
who drilled between 200 and 300 wells,
but he was as indefatigable a worker in
the field as he was in the Lord' Vine-
yard throughout his entire oil-country
James G. Anderson was one of ten
children born to Enoch L. Anderson,
wnose wire was itebecca Morthland, of.
York county. Of his three brothers,
William died early ; Thomas became a
banker in Franklin, Pa., and George
K., was the great oil operator who, it
will be remembered, gave 11,000 toward
building the I-st Waterford Presby.J
terian church. Of his six sisters all are '

-J ' ting8 of ance in

his heart he is yet a gallant admirer of i
that famous bell, Miss Jennie Hamlin,
now Mrs. William Banks. As illus
trative of what a small world this really
is, the followingcombination of circum
stances may be interesting. I was
standing at the door of Mr. Anderson's
shoe store lu Wilklnsburg the other
evening, preparing to say good night.
He was just telling of how be had once
driven "beautiful Jennie Ilamllu" out
to the country, and narrowly escaped a
reprimand from the Court for being
tardy as a juryman when Edgar N.
Doty stopped hi passing to shake hands
with me. Edgar is Cashier of the
Wilkinsburg bank, which is only half j
a block distant from Mr. Anderson's
place of business, yet the two had never
"Mr. Doty knows 'beautiful Jennie
Hamlin' whom you were just speaking
of," said I.
"I ought to," said Edgar. 'for she
was my cousin before marriage, and
became doubly so by "marriage, both
tbe Hamlins and Bankses being my
"Is that so?" exclaimed Mr. Ander
son, delightedly. "Why, I knew your
father, and admired bim greatly. Well,
as I was saying, I drove out to the
Spieses one day with beautiful "
"Hold on !" interrupted Edgar. "If
you'r going to talk about the Spieses
my friend waiting yonder knows them
and will be glad to listen to what yon
have to Bay." ,
In calling his friend, who stood a few
feet away, Edgar introduced him as
Mr. Rohrer, and added : "His mother '
was a Spiese Sarah, wasn't it !" And
then the happy old gentleman told the
romantic story all over again, winding
up with : "Tbe beat people I ever met
kcame from Juniata county."
Mr. Anderson married a young wo
man of the same surname as himself
Miss Eliza E. Anderson, of Baltimore.
William L. Anderson, the only son, is
a fine specimen of young manhood,
who is his father's main reliance in his
business establishment, and seenas te
have imbibed much of the old gentle
man's characted, earnestness and ener
gy. The youngest daughter, Lily, is
married and the mother of five chthtiew,
so the strain of blood starting frees King
James I is in no danger of running out.
The two little daughters, Misses Belle
and Mattie live at home with their
parents at No. 1015 Ross Avenue, Wilk
