W. J. Brynn in his Cinciunata
speech mid, "It ko outer upon n
colonial policy wo must expect to
hear the command 'silenco' issu
ing with increasing emphasis
from tho imperialists. It' would
bo tntber lough on Willio Bryan to

Thcodoro lloosovolt in his in
augural address said, "It is only
through tho party system that froe
governments nro now successfully
carried on." This is the utterance
of ono of the leading Americans
of tho day. Hero iu Hawaii tho
official loaders through thoir organ
seek to block tho organization of
parties, nnd especial enmity is di
rected toward tho Republican par
ty, the especial champion of the
annexation cause. The situation
carries its own argument.
Tho New York Sun iu its
Christmas greeting says:
"Tho American Christmas of
1598 hns been tho merriest for
morn than fifty years. Wo freoly
confess to confidence iu tbe belief
that tbe year to open next week
will bo to tho samo extent tbe hap
pioet for tho well disposed and
worthy citizens of tho United
States, and for the Mugwump and
Populist misbelievers in our fit
ness for living and our ability to
tako care of ourselves and grow up
with iht world tho wretobedost
year they have over known."
Tho mugwumps of Hawaii's
oUiciiu circle whoso sentiments
aro voiced by tho official organ ore
already beginning to fool wretch
ed over the outlook.
Two very interesting expres
sions appear in the despatches
relating to Col. Barber's advance
ment to a brevet Brigadier Gono
ral. First that President McKin
ley and Secretary Alger aro high
ly pleased with Col. Barber's
career in Honolulu; second, that
Col. Barber did not fight in Ho
nolulu. The first statement is a
direct slap in tho faco to certain
officials hero who tried to make
out that Col. Barber was 8ort of
a second handed nonomty who
didn't know his business. It also
proves tbe Bulletin's assertion
that tbe Executivo wont after the!
wrong man when it so roundly
condemned Barber and patted his
Buperior officer on tho back. That
Col. Barber did not do any fight
ing in Honolulu is technically
true, but ho was nevertheless
forced into eomo lively "scrap
ping" with tho Executive, that
started with his desire to establish
head quarters in tho Executivo
If evpr a political parly floatod
on a sea of trouble, the Doraooratio
party in its present condition
knows bow to sympathize. That
tho money issuo is dead is admit
ted on all Bides. "V. J. Bryan is
trying to creato a cause by taking
up tho anti oxpansion cudgel, and
ho immediately gots a robuff
from Richatd Croker to tho
offpct that tho policy of ex
pansion is all right and Domo
cratio Congressmen olooted to
office on that platform aro offered
as proof. Col. "Watterson bIiowb

Gdonoral Joo Wheelor bavo brokon

whether these mon would consont
to run n gainst McKinloy, thoy
having been active agonts in car
rying out his policy. Chicago
Democrats asEort that tho only
liopo is in eliminating tho raonoy
issuo and making tho fight on op
position to trusts and tho money
power. And so it goes all down
tho Domocratio lino, chaoB from
ono cud to the other.
California has its family com
pact judging from tho remarks of
tho Sau Francisco Evoning Po9t.
Attention is called to tho list of
promises to bo good mado by tho
now officials taking oftico through
out tho United States tho first of
the year. A general political revi
val is voiced throughout tho coun
try. Tbo Post adds:
" There is ono feature of this
moral revival, however, which
loudly calls for refprm, especially
especially in this State. Whilo
solcmuly assuring the public that
they intend to do thoir duty and
at tbo same time making loud
protestations of virtues, few of the
nowly elected office-holders, here
abouts at least, forgot to givo alt
tho fat places to tboir relatives.

enough to ask tho peoplo to con

au outrno for a man who suc
ceeds in imposiug upon their gon

upon tho treasury. Nopotism
