THE A NO LO-AM J v K TC A N  ���     - ENTENTE. -  The despatch.of AdmirafSchley's  squadron to South African waters  at- the present juncture is an event  of the most profound significance  and importance. There cannot be  two interpretations of its- meaning.  It is" a quid pro quo for Great Britain's friendly actions to the'States  during the Spanish "war," and shows  verv  clearlv   that whilst there mav  - w  be no formal treaty of offence and  defence between the two countries,  there is at least'.a well-defined understanding between their respective Cabinets a.s to the action to be  taken by either in case of certain  eventualities coming to pass, as witness the present situation. It  means "No intervention, hands  o.ff, or you will have to reckon with  us also," and must be a staggerer  to certain European Powers,' notably  France and-Russia., Great Britain's  difficulty i.s their opportunity/They  would think   twice* l>efore   tackling  *. O  her, even hampered-as "she. is,- but  with cousin Jonathan in the game  they will probably conclude that  discretion is the better part of valor  and maintain a discreet, but safe,  silence.  In the interest of the poor animals we would call the attention of  the authorities to quite a ' number  of apparently ownerless horses  which are straying around the town  and vicinity. For the most part  they are mere bags of- bones, .trying vainly to eke out an existence  on elemosynary scraps of excelsior  and shavings. . The presence of  these poor animals is a continual  source of. pain to any one with a  germ of humanity in his bosom.  Owners of horses who cannot properly feed and .take care of them  should be compelled to put them to  a swift and merciful death. The  man who would let his poor faithful horse shift for himself through the courts and the ��� legislatures are  our rigorous winter 0.1 the bare naturallv returning to the old rem-  chaiice of his survival m the spring j edies     That competition is the  life  I of trade, and that unlawful combinations threaten to bring about indust-  j rial stagnation, are principles not to  price, and not to serve each 'other's  dissatisfied customers. The pros-  secutiug attorney of the county  brought suit to forfeit the charters  of both companies, and was defeated  in the lower court on points'of law,  but the Supreme Court now sustains  his contentions. The salient points  the decision were as follows:   ���  "It is an old and familiar maxim  that competition is the life of trade,  and" whatever act daslroys competition or even relaxes it on the" part  of those whe sustain relations to the  public is regarded by the law as  injurious to, the public. '  "The exclusion of competition,  under the agreement, redounded  solely to the benefit of appellee and  the other company, and the enforcement of the compact would be  nothing less than detrimental to the  public."  "Where the facts disclose that a  corporation has failed in the discharge of its corporate duties by  uniting with others in carrying out  an agreement tlie performance of  which is detrimental or injurious to  the public, it thereby may be said  to offend against the-law of its creation, and consequently to forfeit its  right to longer "to exercise' its  franchises." ;���  i     'V/hat'rendered this   desisiou  the  more noteworthy was the fact  that  it was   not   based   upon   a   recent  statute, but upon   old   common-law  principles.    That  these    principles  were averse to combinations  would  not a few years ago have been questioned by any student of legal history.  The old decisions   were   uniformly  against agreement "in  restraint   of  trade,''   and  the  old statutes were  constantly    fixing    the    prices    of  necessities, in order to avoid   monopoly     extortions.    The      statutes  fixing prices have  sometimes   been  derided, but careful historians   find  that they represented  the  common  sense of all thinking people  in -the  period  when   business   competitors  were so few that flagrant  extortion  had to be guarded  against.    When  the number of business  enterprises  increased     so     that     competition  became the rule in nearly  all  communities, these decisions  and statutes began to seem obsolete; but in  the present period of great combinations to re-establish monopoly, both  apparent difficulty of framing a law  which would    hit   a    "department  store" and miss a   "general  store"  was met by two provisions, one'lim-  iting the statute to St. Louis,   Kansas City, and   St. Joseph, and   the  other making  it  applicable  within  .those cities only to  stores' employing more than fifteen persons.   -The  statute divides merchandise into   88  classes, and imposes on stores handling more than one  class a  license  tax of from $320 to $500 for each additional  class of goods they handle.

Almost  on  the heels of "the signing of this   act  in   Missouri  comes   the  report    of  Consul-General Mason,   at..Berlin',  showing   that  a  large   number   of  measures   aimed     at    department  stores.have  been   proposed  in   the  federal  and   provincial   legislatures  of Germany  since    1896,   while-in"  France a league   of   40,000   retail  dealers has been formed to  oppose  HER TICKET CANCELLED.
