WEDNESDAY MQBNING, APRIL 1,1903,
The crowds of Berlin people
who recently visited the ceme-
teries to decorate the graves of
those killed in the rioting1 of 1848
were met by a policeman at the
gate, who, "with a pair of shears,
clipped from wreathe ribbons on
which objectionable inscriptions
had been put.
The Cuban reciprocity treaty,
which was "ratified" by the
United States senate at an extra
session called to enable the Re-
publican party's pledges to be
carried out, is standing on the
brink of oblivion. In the first
place, the convention can not
become effective until it hss been
approved by the American con
gress, and this body will not
meet until next December ynless
called ia extra session by the
president. A majority of the
foreign relations committee of
the Cuban senate made a report
on Friday in favor of approving
all the amendments adopted by
the United States senate. It-
contains a provision, however,
requiring the adoption of the
treaty by the United States con-
gress before December 1. Secre-
tary Hay has sent a waroing to
the Cuban government that the
sligheet amendment of the treaty
certainly would defeat it, since
any amendments must be sub-
mitted to the American senate,
and before this body shall meet
again the date fixed for the final
exchange of ratifications, March
31, will have passed.
People who know a thing or
two pricked up their ears when
that renowned "corporationist,"
the Hon. Stephen B. Elkins,
senator from West Virginia, in-
troduced a bill in the United
States senate to prohibit railroads
from giving rebates to shippers.
It was announced that this bill
was a part of the administration's
"anti-trust" program. What
was the business coming to when
old Steve Elkins was put down
for one of the numbers on an
anti-trust program? But after
the Elkins bill was passed it
proved to be a measure to make
the railroads charge the full rates
for all freight aiyi passengers
with nothing thrown in for good
measure. Now it develops that
the Elkins act was drafted by A.
J. Cassatt, president of the Penn-
sylvania Railroad; Paul Mor-
ton, second vice president of the
Santa Fe, and^E. D. Kenna, first
vice president and general coun-
sel of the same road. It is true
that rebates should be prohibited,
because#they in effect penalize
the email shipper for the benefit
of the big one, "but the Elkins bill
THE HARD AND HEART,
Collier's Weekly last week had
a splendid editorial on two char-
acters that are now before the
American people seeking a name
and place other than finan-
cial wizards, The two dealt with
were Carnegie and Rockefeller.
It is claimed that Rookef°ller
held that the world needed sym-
pathy more than financial help,
while Carnegie acted on the line
that it needed cold dollars rather
than sympathy. While both men
were making every effort to build
for them a name as philanthro-
pists and benefactors, both of
them were conspicuous failures.
While they had done much in
their line, both were viewed in-
differently by the public, if not
despised. Carnegie was cold and
cilculated in his gifts. While
they were princely not the lea'st
sentiment was stirred by them
and the gifts lacked the demon-
stration of a kindly heart
Rockefeller was generous in his
sympathy, but withheld the hand
that should be hblpful and sym-
pathetic at the same time. As a
consequence both men were des-
pized by the great masses that
saw through the shame. The
article truly presented the failure
of these two men as public bene-
factors and illustrated the
thought of a pure and higher life
which must not only be helpful
and sympathetic but generous.
The heart must be in the work
backed by the hand. In all life's
work to be successful and secure
the praise of men the hand and
heart must work together, and
that sympathy without material
help was a sham, and princely
giving without the warm heart
throbs or evidences of loving
kindness and generosity was
worse than failure and left the
world unsatisfied both as to giver
and recipient. — Gonzales En-

nothing about the matter, and as
he ought to know, his statement
should kill the rumor.
