A resolution has been introduced in the senate of congress, directing the department of justice to start at once, a rigid investigation, to locate, if possible, a criminal conspiracy in the manipulation of prices on gasoline.  Now, hold on a minute! Don't cheer action of the senate prematurally, for these spot-light acts necessarily have to be staged about once so often, for the edification of the gallery, (the people.) You well remember, if you can remember anything at-all, that the great Stanard Oil Company throttled competition/ by. fixing prices, for one state, or a group of states, 25tf per gallon; another group 15^ per gallon; and another group at 5f per���gallon; while in many large cities you could get five gallon cans filled free. .Then after .many long and weary years congress passed- anlanti-trust law, which was patched up and worked over quite considerable, and then at just about the time the people had given up hope of relief, the Department of Justice almost convicted the great Standard Oil Co.,. of being a great blood sucking*ocr-topus and criminally inclined^and, ordered the old Standard disolved. You know what has been happening ever since,  especially with reference to the prices of gasoline and Standard Oil' stocks.  - A beatiful line of ladies shirt waists in' the newest 1 You art) The Lyric.

In this issue appears the an-aouncement of the candidacy of Mr. Glen Alcorn, for the office of County Judge.
