Query By what authorization

brings to mind the exports wlin
wore buying ships previous to the
opening of the war. Thoy had
been hard at work nll.day and
figured up that they had expended
cevoial millions of government
money. Thon they wanted some
thing to oat aud discovered that
thoy didn't have even a five cent
pieco for cigarettes. Uncle 6am
has plouty of funds but it isn't
always easy to get at thorn.
Attorney Gardner at the annual
meeting of thtyNew York State
Bar Association called attention
to the fact that the sovereignty of
tho United Slates exists iu the
people. This is tho notable feat
ure of American conditions which
the oppoueuts of expansion catd
aside. Their whole theory is
based on tho idea that tho consti
tution of tho United States is a
hard and fast document which
shall ho interpreted to suit tho
pleasure of tho minority whoso
Buporiority of conceit places them
above their follows.
Notwithstanding tho educational
campaign of Jbo auti-expausio.i-istn,
ihu "hard timo" stories told
by the returning soldiery and the
criticism of tho conditions in tho
Philippines, tho peoplo of tho
United Slates would today regard
tho withdrawal of tho Amer
ican flag from that group
in much tho same light
bh they held Glovolnnd'ri action in
Hawaii. It is true thn people aro
iu a quandary as to how the place
shall be handled, just what sort of
machinery should bo put in, but it
is only a Very small minority that
domauds that tho governmental
maohinery shall not bo American.
Advocates of American withdrawal
are advocates of ultra solfislmesa.
Tho United States is morally bound
to refnso to follow a policy which
will increase tho complications of
Grout liritaiu with othor European
nations in tho problems of the Fur
Tho problem which tho Americ
an peoplo and tho Republican par
ty have to solve is "How shall wo
handle thou?" not "What shall
wo do with thorn ? " And growiug
out of this is the problom present
ed to tho administration whether
the iusurgouts Bball bo vigorously
spanked or quietly nursed into
lino. Tho latter courso is preferable
and will bo followed if possible
From the rocontManila dispatches
it is very apparent that the soldi-
ory of tho United States were
uover called upon to exercise more
self control. Tho nUitudo of tho
insurgents is obstreporous and
nasty and it is not surprising that
the mon of the army are-anxious
to teach them a lesson in Ameri
can power. Tho United States
has suffered by tho enthusiasm of
its consuls, and tho brunt of their
mistakes falls upon tbo army.
The future can not bo forecast,
except that the United States wilt
"stay" in tho Philippines; whether
by force of arms or force of argu
ment depouds largoly upou the
common sense of the Filipino.

An associate wagered with a

awhile and then auswored: "Well

nothing to be wished'for and said
that the mild, friendly people of

the prer-ont condition of tho na

bibed too much of foreign ideas
