wlth* the ligbtfol dletlnctlon between lntortor
ing with thi- domoMio affairs of a Btate an.l
ilie exc ution of tho laws of tho Unlted Statos.
lt wns adrolt In Mr. Hryan, but amazingly Im
pudent, to quote Abraham Llncoln as an op
ponent of tho enforoomont of Unlted Statos
laws withln stnto Umlta, as if erery st.-p taken
l-y Mr. Llncoln in roppreaawn <>f tho rebelllon
had not been md bj aecenelonleta aml thoir
aympatblaeri wlth exactly tho anme plea whtcjt
Mr. Hryan now. sots op. Whercrer Unlted
Btatea laws gre rkriated it is tne eworn duty
of iho PreaJdent to enforce them, though ererj
man in a Stnto from the Covornor down par
ticipat.'s inlho vlolatioii. That hl not Interfer
in_r wlth tbe tloinostio affalra <>f :i Btate. which
tho BepnMlcan piatform of 1880 cecanred, aml
Mr. Hryan ls pitifully Ignoranl of blatory aml
of law if ho cloos not kix.w it.
Not more oonnd is Mr. Bryan'a attempt to
make publlc condemnatlon of the Tanej ded
sion ragardlng bnman alarery an excuae for
the Chlcago propoaal to reconatrud tho Bu
promo Court in ordei to r?-innli:it?? Natlonal an.l
prlrate obllgatlona and debaae tbe enrrency.
The BepnbUcana <>f 188U rtghtly denonnced "per
vorslons of judl.-ial power," becauae n? quea?
tlon boforo tho (.'ourl at tho tlme gave it ov.-n a
decent excuae for tho oweeplng declalon whi.-h
lt rendercd in iho Intereat of a pro-nlarery
polltleal party. Mr. LlncolnJ rtghtly held that
such a poi'vorsion of power conld ln no way
obllgate tba rotera of tbe eountry in the exer
oiso of thelr polltleal rlghta. Nelther doea any
body now dalm that those rotera are in the
loast reatrnlned from weklng to elect Congreoo
mon who wlll emloavor to devloe a mode of
laxing Incomea whi.h th. conrts will regard
as not nnconatltntlonal Hut tha propoggJ to
reconatrnct <>r pack tho Courl hy act of Con
gr.-ss, so thal it shall ivvorso its .l.-.-isiuii, is a
vory ilifforoiif matter. If Mr. Hryan doea not
know that, be is amazingly unlit to bold any
hlgh offlce, an.l if ho doos. ho is as iiiis.-nipii
looa in trylng to doooivo iho people as any
demagogne in tho eountry.
When Mr. Hryan crltlcloea tho iale of Unlted
Statos bonda through a ayndicate of bankera,
be timls many who agree thal the metbou was
erroneoua, although the objed <?f tbe oale was
honornble. Hut thls .-ampulgn dcea not tum

or Prealdenl Clereland erred In Judgment
when they eoncelved that ii waa neceaaary t..
omploy tho aid Of tbe syndicato ln order to

or not has nothlng to do with tbe queatlon

No one wlll call them to account. Uussia il pro

But why is Buaabwtbua naklng beraelf an ae

Por various icisons. one. beranae Ruaalana

do tbe Jews. Tbe Armenlans are to them aUeni
iu race and creed and national spirit, and in all
tboae respi-ets are offclislve to them. Anotlier,
I.ause tbe Armenlans are In Kussia's way. She
wants thelr eountry for her own. but she dOCfl
not want them in it. 'I'lic.v wmilil be liicoiivenieiit

It will be so much better t,> have them all kllled

Why Englapd does nol acl is casy to perceive.
n is n,,i becauae she feara Uussia. or any other
Power or Powera In Europe, nor yet beeanee slu

slu* feara an nprlalng ln her own indian Emplre,
compared wlth whlch the Bepoy Mutloy would

So ilie world may as well aceept Ihe sltiiatlon
