A GREAT DEMOCRATIC EXPAN
"Tom" Benton-, a great high priest of
Democracy, the man whose "Thirty
Years in the United States Senate," is a
. political classic, was an expansionist.
The St. Louis "Globe-Democrat," in a
recent issue shows from the record of
Benton's career as a statesman that
he was a radical expansionist. He stood
and battled for the doctrine of the ex
pansion of the United States into a
world respected and controlling power.
He will be found so expressing him
self in the great work referred to. Even
while he was Minister to France he en
tertained such views. He ardently ap
proved Jefferson's sending De Villiers
to explore Siberia, with a view to the
passage of.Behring Straits and the ex
ploration of what we now know as
Oregon, and to ascertain the probable
relation the two countries might bear
to one another.
Benton dwells at length upon the fact
that Jefferson had a definite policy of
expansion and never ceased to labor for
it, and it included the possible conquest
of all the region then known as British
Columbia Benton in his speeches re
peatedly dwelt upon the necessity of
our ascendency in the Pacific. He
wrote and distributed pamphlets liber
ally, pointing out why we should ac
quire all the* northwest territory.
He urged that England must be
shut out from the eastern coasts of the
Pacific Ocean, that we might assert
ourselves upon that ocean. He contem
plated not only control of the ocean but
of the island wealth of the same, and
he included the "ancient civilization of
the east" to a degree. Benton favored
expansion by force of arms if neces
sary. He supported the Floyd resolu
tion for the occupation of Oregon, and
two or three years later himself intro
duced a resolution for the driving of
the British out of that region. Yet
at that time our right to occupy the
territory was not nearly so clear as is
our right to the Philippines.
"I do not argue the question of title
on the part of the United States," he
said, "but only state what it is founded
upon. Nor do 1 argue the question of
the advantages of retaining the Colum
bia and refusing to divide and alienate
our territory upon it. I merely state
them and leave their value to result
from the enumeration.
'.}' T ° kee P out a- foreign power.
"2. To gain a seaport, with a military
and naval station on the coast of the
I. 3 ' T ,° save the trade in that region:
"4. To open a communication for
commercial purposes between the Mis
sissippi River and the Pacific Ocean.
"5. To send the lights of science and
religion across the Pacific and into
All this sounds, remarks the St. Louis
paper, very like a present day summing
up of the advantages to the commerce
of the nation and the advancement of
our civilization, to result from our
domination of the Philippines. In one
of his speeches Mr. Benton said:
Upon the people of Asia and the Pa
cific islands the establishment of a civ
ilized power on the opposite coast of
America could not fail to produce
great and wonderful effects. Science,
liberal principles in government and
the true religion would cast their lights
across the intervening sea
Bentton did not stand alone, for Polk
was elected to the Presidency by the
Demooracy upon a distinct expansion
platform demanding "all of Oregon or
none." Benton was so positive and great
an expansionist that he favored and
battled for the absorption of the coast
region ctf Mexico, and gave the cele
brated Doniphan expedition his sup
port, in the hope that it would lead
up to that end.
Whten Colonel Kearney, after the fall
of the place, proclaimed at Santa Fe
that its citizens were no longer subjects
of Mexico, but of the United States by
reason of his occupation of the place
%nd the assertion of the power of the
United States over what we now know
as New Mexico, there was an outcry
against it, just as there is now against
our occupation of the Philippines. But
Benton, grim old statesman that he
*mm, replied "1 will be responsible for
But prior to that Benton had advo
cated governmental action looking to
the building of a Pacific railroad "»'to
develop our domestic commerce and for
the better reaching of the islands of
the Pacific and the mainland of Asia."
The report presented to the Senate,
which brought up the question, was
written by Senator Breese of Illinois.
That report, which Benton warmly
supported, almost declared for the con
qnest of all the Pacific isles.
Of the Polynesian group it says:
Commerce is to develop their re
sources*, as also to civilize their inhab
itants, as it has with the Sandwich
Islands. To us they will be important,
and by our commerce and intercourse
must they be brought to life and light.
And of the Philippines it says: "They
produce sugar, coffee, indigo, hemp,
etc., such articles as we want in ex
change for our cotton, cotton manu
factures and many other products.
When the inhabitants of these and the
other islands are freed from vassalage
and can enjoy unrestrainedly the re
ward of their own labor, we shall find j
thidr ability to produce and exchange I
their products for ours almost with
And these propositions Benton sup
ported with all his energy and skill.
He stood near to the birth hour of the
republic. The Constitution of the na
tion was still young. The people and
the statesmen of the day were. closer
to the "fathers" than we are. Many
of the old revolutionists were still liv
ing; the atmosphere was still charged
with the spirit that made us free and
a republic. Democracy did not then
quail at the thought of the nation be
coming a world Power. In fact the
Democracy stood for just such a fu
ture for the country.
But then, we had no Bxyans nor At
kinsons nor Altgelds in those days.
We had no close constructionists to
whine and simper and fear and doubt
and protest as to the meaning of the
declaration or the interpretation of the
Constitution. There was division of
sentiment of course, among the people
as to proposed lines of policy, but there
was no smirching of national honor,
nor attempt to aid an enemy, and no
thought of an exelusiveness and cramp
ed condition which would keep us for
ever an infant in national strength,
and a mere coma in the manuscript of
Queer way they have of doing thing.3
in France. Colonel Dv Paty de Clam
—the grandest and slickest rascal of
the lot against Dreyfus—conveniently
fell sick just at the time when he was
wanted in court and when the defense
most desires to examine him as a wit
ness. Thereupon the prosecution move
to have his deposition taken. That
far it was regular procedure
enough. But the court, while send
ing a Commissioner to take the
deposition forbade, under the French
rule, the counsel for the defense being
present to cross-examine the witness.
Thus from his sick bed the shrewd wit
ness protects himself at the expense of
the prisoner. In this country the tak
ing of a deposition is had in the pres
ence of representatives of both sides to
a cause, and denial to either of the
right to be present would be held to
be invasion of a sacred and human
guarantee and make the deposition val
ueless for any purpose. Thank heaven
that this is America, and that here the
humblest citizen is accorded the right
to face his accuser and examine the
witnesses who testify against him.
OUR AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTS
Carl Simon, Roumanian Consul Gen
eral in Germany has written a book
which has, says our Vice Consul Gen
eral at Frankfort, created a profound
impression in GeFmany. Simon ranks
j high as a student of economics, and as
| a strong- and cool thinker. He fears
j for German interests from American
; competition in the matter of our ex
port of agricultural products. Inci
i dentally he pays America a high com
| pliment in comparing our agricultural
methods with those of the great Euro
pean State. He says:
It would be of great economic ad
vantage to Germany if our agricultural
class could increase its cultivation of
grain and other products, su#ft as fruit,
meat, etc., in order that we might be
come independent of other nations and
save the many millions that now go
abroad. Agricultural products from
the United States competes severely
with those of native growth. The com
petition of the United States does not,
like that of other grain-exporting coun
tries, confine itself to cereals alone, but
is a dangerous rival in all fields, as the
country exports all kinds of agricultur
al machines, etc.
The competition of other countries
is, further, not as hurtful as that of
the great republic, because their
methods of production and commercial
handling of the products are primitive,
and our agriculturists can more eas
ily compete with them. The methods
of the Americans, on the other hand,
Our Vice Consul adds that the au
thor says, that as the American agri
cultural classes are able to sell their
produce in Germany at cheaper rates
than are asktd for the domestic arti
cle, the tariff on imports must be made
high enough to protect German pro
ducers. The rate, he says, can be as
certained only by thoroughly studying
the respective conditions existing in
the two countries. Mr. Simon con
It were a national disaster if Ger
many's agricultural conditions were to
conform to those now existing in Eng
land. Americans have practiced the
doctrines of the great French states
man Colbert, which made France rich
and caused her agriculture, industry,
and commerce to attain an unexam
pled stage of prosperity. This system
suits the United States, but Germany
does not occupy a like position, as
she can not raise sufficient food pro
ducts for her population. This con
dition might be ameliorated by a
thorough reform of the agricultural
system. Germany's import of food ar
ticles for the year IS'J7 amounted to
over $266,000,000. This figure is
alarming and should induce her states
men to adopt every measure calculat
ed to foster home production, so as to
change the adverse trade balances
which for the past years have exist
ed In German commerce with foreign
nations. In this respect, the Americans
ought to be looked upon as teachers
of national economy.
Much satisfaction it must be to the
membership of Troop B of this city,
one of the finest organizations of the
National Guard of California, to learn
that they went to San Francisco ana
took part in the reception of the re
turning California volunteers, only to
be represented in the chief illustrated
journal of that city, in a good half-tone
picture as a troop of the United States
cavalry. For mixing things, getting
things wrong end to, and giving credit
erroneously, commend us to the San
Francisco press generally.
Mr. Bryan says that he wants a cit
izenship In America that will stand for
as much and more than citizenship in
any other nation in the world. Weli,
who does not? But is it to be attained
by arraying the American people
against each other? Is it to be es
tablished by a close and fearful policy
of exelusiveness and fear to take our
place among the nations of the world
to which destiny and every force of
progress, civilization and betterment is
THE RECORD-UNION, SACRAMENTO, SATURDAY. > SEPTEMBER 9, 1899.
The following reports on the growth
of hops in the English plantations for
the week ending Wednesday, August
23, 1899, are furnished by the "Kentish
' Observer" of Canterbury, Kent, and
| presented with the compliments of M.
H. Durst of 47 Effra road, Brixton, S.
W.; London, resident agent in England
for the Durst Bear River hops of Yuba
County, California. These reports are
furnished gratuitously, and in the hope
that they will be of service in keeping
the growers advised of the crop pros
The dry weather is keeping the hops
from developing so well as it was
hoped they wouid, and fears are ex
pressed that the later varieties may
suffer considerably unless we soon get
rain. The coolness of the nights, too,
is against them to some extent. Some
gardens in this locality look like grow
ing fully twenty-one cwt. to the acre
if conditions remain favorable, but
mold is spreading a little more rapidly
now than it has done before and may
cause considerable trouble before the
picking commences. Close observers
notice, too, that the lower branches of
the hops are not so fruitful as they
are often seen and prophecy some
amount of disappointment when the
crop comes down from its failure to
reach present estimates. It is generally
felt, however, that the crop will be
quite large enough for the market.
(Brenchley, Paddock Wood and Capel.)
The picking of the "Earlies" will
commence at the end of the present
week, the continued drought and heat
having ripened them off very rapidly.
There will be a heavy yield of all de
scriptions in this district, and the qual
ity promises to be exceptionally good.
At Brenchley and Capel there are mar
velous growths of the new hop "Tol
hurst," named after the originator,* Mr.
Tolhurst, on whose farms the yield is
estimated at from thirty to thirty-five
cwt. per acre. This description of hop,
it is said, rarely grows less than thirty
cwt. per acre.
(Bridge and Neighborhood.)
Hop-growers say they want rain, but
hops continue to improve. Brandings
are now a very pretty sight, and Gold
ings promise to be so a week hence.
Rapid development has marked the
past week in all the Canterbury
grounds, the splendid weather having
brought out the hops in beautiful style.
Rain would doubtless be beneficial to
them, but it is not absolutely essential.
The prospect continues good for an av
erage crop of fine quality. There will
be several growths of a ton per acre,
and the average of the whole district
will probably be about eleven cwt. per
(Chartham and Chilham.)
Hops, both Bramlings and Goldings, I
consider are coming out nicely. Pick
ing will commence in about a fort
night. The general opinion is that the
hops want rain.
The hops are still going on satisfac
torily. With one exception there is
mold in some gardens. One grower talk 3
of beginning to pick on Thursday, but
it will not be general till the first week
This forcing weather is bringing the
hops out very fast, and picking will
have to be begun sooner than was
anticipated unless we get rain, which
no doubt would do a lot of good.
The heavy fogs and scorching sun
have caused red mold to make its ap
pearance. The Bramlings are chiefly
affected, which variety is most uneven,
some out in full hop, and others just
in the burr stage. Hop-picking, if all
goes well, will not commence until the
first week in September. My outside
estimate (up to the present) of the crop,
is that it will not greatly exceed last
year's, certainly not one cwt. per acre
Rain is much wanted; without it the
crops will not grow out to their full
size. The soil is very dry and hard.
The Bramlings will be the best crop
(Ickham and Wickham.)
The Bramlings are now out in full
hop and promise a good crop. The
Goldings are following suit and with
a continuance of favorable weather
likewise promise a good crop of sound
hops. Although not suffering from the
drought a good soaking rain would do
The drought is affecting some grounds
and will shorten the crop. On the cool
deep soils the prospect of heavy
growths is excellent, estimates ranging
from a ton to thirty cwt. per acre. The
average of the whole parish will be
about twelve cwt. per acre. Picking has
already commenced, but only in one or
(Littlebourne and Bekesbourne.)
The plantations in these parishes
have probably never had a finer prom
ise. The bine is covered with hops,
which are bright and sound, and are
daily gaining condition. The intensely
hot weather of the last few days has
brought them on very rapidly, and it
looks like being an early picking.
Up to this date, August 22d, the hops
have come out well and held their
own, but the strong sun and strong
northeast winds begin to tell a tale,
and where the least affected with mold
they begin to go off. The crop will I
not be so large as many think, but the
quality must be very superior to any
grown of late years.
The hot dry weather is fast bringing
the old Goldings into hop, the Bram
lings being already fully developed and
looking well. I should think the valley
will produce a crop of about nine hun
dred weight per acre of good quality.
Although the hops want a good rain,
they keep coming out slowly and prom
ise an average crop. There are no lice
or mold to speak of. but a little of both
can be found.
Bramlings are fully out and later
sorts coming out slowly, owing to the
very dry weather. Mold troublesome
at places. Crop estimated at slightly
over last year's average of the parish.
Picking will commence somewhere
about the 29th inst.
The hops in this parish have contin
ued to make favorable progress since
our last report. A little mold has made
The hops in this neighborhood are
doing well, and Bramlings are fast ma
turing, practically free from all dis
ease, well grown, and of first-rate qual
ity. It will be easy to overset the
growth this year, as the under laterals
are blind. Picking in about a fort
If the present forcing weather con
tinues picking will begin in five or six
days' time in many of the Mid-Kent
parishes. The development during the
past week has been very rapid, and
prospects all round are exceedingly
good. Rain is much wanted in some
grounds, and would be of great advant
age to the late Goldings everywhere,
but on the whole the bine is holding its
own well. Mid-Kent will grow at least
two hundredweight per acre in excess
of the ordinary average, and the qual
ity will be exceptionally fine as there is
practically no mold.
Farnham—Mold is increasing, but not
to a serious extent. The general pros
pect is for a very large crop.
Hops still looking well, have had no
rain. The growth will probably range
from ten to twelve hundredweight per
The past week has been very favora
ble for the hop grounds in East Sussex,
and there is marked improvement all
round. The cones are developing very
fast, and the early sorts are almost
ready for the picking. There is, un
fortunately, more mold than there was
last week, and a lot of' sulphuring is
being done. Rain is wanted for the
late descriptions, and unless it comes
the Colegates will be small in size. In
the best farmed grounds there will be
numerous instances among the Bram
lings of a ton to the acre, and the
quality is. likely to be very fine.
Hops continue to come on very fast
and the crop will certainly be much
better than expected as the burr came
out very thick and turned into hop very
fast. Picking will begin about the
fiist week in September.
The exceptionally hot weather has
brought on the hops very rapidly and
on the shallow soils the great heat be
gins to tell upon the plant, preventing
the free development of the burr in the
later sorts and prematurely ripening
the earlies. On the deep hop lands
and cool soils healthy progress contin
ues to be made and the hops are un
usually free from disease everywhere.
Supplies of 1808 Worcesters being
practically exhausted the trade is al
most in abeyance until the new hops
come to market. — J. H. Meredith &
Co., August 21st.

North Pole Mysteries.
The return of an Arctic explorer clears
up many mjsteries, who says that much
new land was discovered in Weddell Sea,
and open water was seen far to the south.
This shows that the great wall of ice
reported by early explorers was a myth.

constipation, nervousness, sleeplessness
and liver and kidney disorders. Do not
accept a substitute. See that a private
