, effrontery to claim the support of tho
" sliver men after thus deserting them
l, and adhering to a candidate who ex-
, p pressly stipulated for gold cr the con-
rl ventlon might go to thi devil.. And
j It did.
A' The agent of the Department of Jus-
j'1 tlce was In Utah a few months ago,
I looking Into the records of naturallza-
tion. Some irregularities were found,
I r but as far as the public knows, no ab-
!' aoluto frauds. were discovered, it is
'J different, however, In New York City,
Hj' a where a joint Investigation by the Fod-
Rj '( evsl authorities and the State Superln-
Hi j I tendtr.t of. Eiecvlcns has been made,
'J The latter official jr.alce? tnc public
j' Btatement that they found JG0O.0O0 had
been made within the last year by tho
sale of fraudulent naturalization pa-
H pers: that on these papers a hundred
thousand naturalizations have been ef
fected illicitly and illegally, and that
thirty thousand of. these arc in Now
York City alone. No wonder tho Dem
ocrats are high in their claims of what
tier can do lu N.tiw York thi3 year, for
that the bulk ot thfs fraudulent nat
uralization is in the Interest of the
Democratic party is affirmed with the
greatest confidence, and can well bo believed.
HOLDING A PEOPLE I.N SUBJECTION.
Though there is so little practical dlf
.fererice between the manner In which
the Republican administration is pro
ceeding In the Philippines and the way
Judge Parker says he would' proceed,
that it Js a negligible quantity, some ad
herents of the Democratic candidate
think they see a difference. The Re
publicans, they" say, do not see in the
holdjng of the Filipinos In virtually a
colonial position till they are able to
govern themselves, anything contrary to
or subversive of our American institu
tions or ideals. On the contrary, they
say, "Judge Parker, reaffirming what
dir. iticnarn umey nau said m a spcecn
at Boston, points out that the assertion
of a right to hold an alien, people In sub
jection, no matter how enlightened, hu
mane, and indulgent our rule may be,
is- totally Irreconcilable with the Decla
ration of Independence."
But our Democratic frlendo appear to
lose sight of the extent to which that
argument would carry them. If it Is
true that holding an alien people in sub
jection would be a fatal Inroad on the
Declaration of Independence, certainly
the holding of an alien race in subjection
would be as bad. And If It Is destructive
of American Ideals to hold a people in
subjection outside of the limits of our
boundaries. It Is much more so to hold a
people In subjection within our boun
daries. Tf there Is ar. Irrepressible conflict be
tween the Declaration of Independence
and the treatment we are according to
the Filipinos, how much fiercer that con
flict must rage between the Decleratlon
of Independence and our treatment of
the negroes In the South! Indeed, the
conflict In- the latter cose lo not confined
to-a battle with the Declaration of Inde
pendence, but it is also a battle royal
with the Constitution Itseif. And the
suggestion in the Republican National
platform that the assault upon the
Declaration of Independence and plain
violation of the Constitution that Is
manifest In the political treatment of
the negro by the Southern whites should
not be allowed to perpetuate, the abus;
of which the whites are now reaping the
benefit, of getting the political advan
tage for themselves of which they de
prive tho negro, is met with an outcry
that the Republican party contemplates
an Injustice to the South. That Is, the
Southern whites are reaping advantage
from their own wrong, demand
that this usurpation of theirs must con
tinue, and rail at any one who objects
to It. At the same time, they demand
that the Declaration of Independence
and the Constitution must be strictly
followed in the Philippines, though they
Ignore and contemn both at home.
Such glaring Impudence as this makes
the Democratic claim a wretched tra
vesty on common sense and common
justice. Every Southern State will vote
that the Filipinos must be given a def
erence and protection which they would
fight any man for proposing in behalf of
the negro who resides in the Southern
States of this Republic. Where Is the
decency of such a diverse attitude on
this question? How does it come that
the Southern white is so much exercised
I about the rights of the Filipinos, and so
callous to the rights of the negro? And
what claim has the Democratic party on
the consideration of the American public
viit:n i). mnes Huusianuutiy ine tooutnorn
position on this question?
But two or three years ago the coun
try was deafened with the outcries of
the Democrats and the anti-Imperialists
over reports that came of cruelties and
indignities Inflicted upon the Filipinos
by the American troops. But what would
have been said If there had come an au
thentic report of the Americans burning
a Filipino at tho stake? Especially what
would have been the Indignation just
and right, too If It had appeared that
the Americans had taken from the offi
cers of the law. Filipinos who had been
duly tried, convicted, and were awaiting
the execution upon them of the' sentence
of the court, as was done by whites to
negroes In Georgia the other day? In
shirt, what is the reason, that the Dem
ocrats and the Southerners, who form
the backbone o the Democratic party,
are so punctilious about the Filipino
and so ruthless toward tho negro?
The later reports from the wheat
fields of the old Northwest fully Dear
out The Tribune's opinion when the
wheat-rust scare was on, that the dam
age was grossly overestimated. In a
recent conversation Messrs. J. M. Han
naford, vice-president of the North
ern Pacific, nndF, I. Whitney, gen
eral passenger agent of the Great
Northern, agree that the crop damage
reports have been grossly exaggerated.
They declare from personal observa
tion that the grain tonnage of the two
roads will be ns large if not larger than
last year In the Dakotas and Minne
sota, and that in Montana, Idaho and
Washington the tonnage will be in
creased GO per cent. Doubtless the
next 'scare will be on corn, the report
to be that it is badly damaged by early
frost; but that report should be dis
counted by the fact that it is suro to
come whether there is any damaging
frost or not.
When insisting with plaintive tenacity
on the view that "protection is robbery,"
the Democrats dodge the proof. Thus,
while the worklngmcn of this country
were thrown Into idleness during the
Cleveland Administration, and in con
Fequcnce of the threats and menace by
tho Democratic party to our homo pro
ducts, the worklngmcn of the United
States drew out scores of millions of
dollars of their savings from the rav
ings banks of the country, in order to
live. Since the abolition of Democratic
abortive dealing with tho tariff, and
after the restoration of Republican pro
tection, the workingmen of the United
States have Increased their deposits in
the savings banks by a billion and a
quarter of dollars and have invested an
other billion dollars In life insurance.
When asked where the benefits of Dem
ocracy come in for the worklngman
and how it Is that "protection robbery"
shows such brilliant triumphs for the
workingmen, the Democrats shut up

WHAT'S IN A NAM"?
From he New York Herald.
The word chauffeur, meaning stoker,
was satirically applied by the French
to the driver of an automobile.
In Jefferson Market Police court yes
terday Magistrate Brcen expressed the
view that the supercilious attitude of
chauffeurs toward pedestrians and or
dinary drivers Is due to the "high
sounding" name of their calling.
"It seems to me," said the Magistrate,
"that it would be a good thing to
change the aristocratic name of chauf
feur to something plainer, like motor
man or driver. Then the superiority
will not be so apparent."
"Is your country place finished yet?"
"Oh, yes. Why. 1 havo already begun
alterations on it." Detroit Free Press.
