When ci'minal court cpened in Kit

In the U. S. District Qourt in Kansas
City, last Friday, the four big meat
packing companies of that town and the
Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad
Company were sentenced to pay a fine
of $13,000 each for violation of the
Federal law against taking and giving
rebates. At the same time a New York
broker and his clerk were sentenced to
pay considerable fines and to brief im
prisonmeot for securing rebates. The
cases will be appealed to the higher
courts, but Judge Mcpherson did his
part toward making the law as it stands
respected. The officers of the defend
ant corporations should, also, have been
sentenced to imprisonment.- This de
fect. in the law should be cured by the
present Congress before it adjourns.
Fines, however large, will not prevent
great corporations from breaking the
law if they can greatly profit by ao do
ing, but imprisonment of their officials
would act as a general deterrent.

The twenty-ninth annual
of the Bntler County Sabbatl. School
Association met in Harmony and
Zelienople Tuesday morning. Early in
the morning the delegates commenced
arriving and by the time the convention
was called to order almost a hundred of
them were in the Grace Reformed
church of Harmony, where the first two
sessions were held. Every delegation
was met by the wide-awake reception
committee who wore white caps and
badges, and were escorted to the place
of meeting. Nothing was left undone
to make all feel welcome and soon,
whatever natural feelings of backward
ness there remained in the hearts of any
delegates were banished.
