The Standard Oil company has been
forcing up prices steadily of late. The
price of ooal oil and gasoline has been
raised from two to three cents per
gallon within a short time. Taja
means a great hardship in the aggro
gate for the millions of people who use
tbtse necessary articles. There has
been no apparent cause for this in
crease and many people have been at
a loss to understand the. latest action
of the trust until the news came a few
days ago that the Standard Oil com
DanT is behind the deal to buy up all
the principal copper mines of the
country. Rookfeller needed a few ex
tra millions to Dav for the mines and

Bates of advertising In the Daily or Weekly
One of the greatest of philosophers
said. "Becin with what lies next to
your hand. By accomplishing little by
little always working in the same
direction the greatest ends will at last
be attained." It is puerile to assail
the effort now being made to get rid of
the slot machines by asserting that the
reform ought to begin with the greater
offenders the large gambling halls
where the stakes are large and the
I plunges deep. It is better for the
nresent to concentrate the forces of
right on some demand that is likely to
be compiled with.
Lawyers are coming to the con.
elusion in common with a great many
other people that too many oaths used
in legal proceedings have led to a state
where such formal declarations are
largely disregarded. It is the opinion
of many that it would be well to abol
ieh most of these forms on the prln
oiple that a man who would not keep
bis promise would not keep his oath
The saloon keepers themselves are
to a targe degree opposed to the slot
machines. They are admittedly harm
ful to the oommunity. We can not
see that to get rid of them would work
anything but good.
Everybody will admit that the slot
machines are an extremely yicious
form of gambling device. What argu
ment can possibly be advanced for re

The administration and its organs
are always bringing up the last and
most unworthy argument of the moral
Jy weak man by saying whenever
any change in the direction of better
enforcement of the laws in proposed
that "we are as good as the rest of
them; we don't need to do any differ-
ent." It would be hard to find words
sufficiently strong to denounce this
miserable cowardly disreputable
avoiding of a plain duty on the part of
the present city administration. It is
a most yicious attitude and one that
generally applied would lead to mis
chief every time. It is the attitude of
mind that leads paupers the world
over to resign themselves to poverty
that causes the inhabitants of the
slums of the great cities to spurn every
effort that is put forth in their be
half and to sink of
their own volition deeper
and deeper into the social quagmire
With an administration whose motto
is "To hell with the laws; we are as
good as we want to be" what is the
use of trying to work auy great change
in present conditions as regards the
protection openly afforded by the city
to gamblers dance halls and prosti
tutes? With the slot machines it is
different. The administration has not
yet so far as we know announced any
particular policy with regard to them

There are a number of rumors afloat
concerning large mining deals the
truth of which is not easily -reached.
We give the following for what it is
worth Tbe Farrei nurohase of the
JbiXtension claims from G. W. Hull was
given prominence in last week's issue.
There are those who olaim that W. A.
Clark is tbe real purchaser. This in
given color from the fact that Farrei
is closely connected in business with
Clark and further that the Verde Cop
per company is preparing to pump
water to their plant from the larce
spring on the Extension group. The
report that the Equator law suit has
been settled lacks con firmatlon. The
report is to the effect that the proper
ty has been divided by compromise
Mr. Clark taking one-third of the pro
perty while the parties backing John
uuke tne remainder. Mr. Clark is
to extend his railroad to the Eauator
mine and have 500 men at work by the
nrscouune. Mr. Uuke's people will
extend the Saginaw Southern from
