Notary Public. Cltj- of St. Louis. Uo. My
term explrea April 2i. 1SJ1.
this is ni:pi:i:siHNG.
It i pleasant to read in the cable
news from Manila that General Kobbe,
in command of the louiiuued expedition
to Southern I.uzou and other islands of
liie Philippine group, most freely and
generously makes aeknoivleilgiueut of
the excellent sen ice of the navy in that
This oll:er, who seems to be of the
old-fashioned lighting type thai does
things elteetively and with as little red
tape as possible, lakes espetial pains
to signally praise certain naial ollieers
serving under his direction. He seems
free Irom that petty jealous that lus s.
otten been iiiunifeMeil by Genei-al Otis
at the cost ol the mil y. It evidently is
i!s eoniiciion that duly compels him to
reeugnize laithful service to ihe flag by
w homsoevor remiered.
It will unquestionably delight the
inericaii people to contemplate an otli-o-i
animated by Ihis spiiii. Tliey have
had htlle paiiemi' with the ignoble ef
lorls ol Otis and his army censors to
minimize the work of the navy in the
Philippines. Thev prefer lo see m active
service a broader esprit de corps than
this, a fraternal nride which shall lake
in ever man lighting under our flag mi
land or sea. and that shall deny to
no man the credit due lor Hue service to
hi: p.kgins wi:i,l.
General hold Koberts's opening move
ment in the campaign under his per
sonal direction has been of a nature lo
justify Kuglish coulnlenee in his ability
to change the llritjsh record in South
Afru-a fiom an unbroken series of blun
ders and reverses lo one of achievement
more satisfactory to his Gov erumeiit and
' i ruler his strategical planning. Gen
eral Preiidr.s cavali.v diiisjon lias suc
cessful! ciossed the Kiet Uiver and
cleared the way for an advance of Kob
eiis's artillery and iiilantiy which has
resulted in the tumiug of the Heer lines
at Magersfonlein. the cutting off of their
line of communication to i.loemfuntein,
and the definite occupation of orange
Tree State territory by the English
Army. It is not strange that this
achievement should be hailed with joy
bj the British public.
There Is a renewed belief in Roberts's
ability to raise the siege of Kimltorley.
and possibly of I.ad smith, to defeat
Cronjo's army at Magersionielu in any
thing but a frontal attack, and lo lead
his troops in a march of invasion with
the free Stale capital as its objective
point. It must certainly be acknowl
edged that Roberts has started out well
to accomplish this work. It remains to
be eeu. however, whether the sturdy
lioers have at last met their match in
an Englishman who cannot be led into
traps or fooled by "hunters, ttrata
gems," and who has himself certain
strategical surprises with -which to in
terest his antagonists.
PUERTO RICO'S BURDEN.
Jt Is a sad commentary ou American
Justice that tlie lobby of two interests
In the I'niled States should be able to
hectire the .sacrifice of a plain provision
in the Constitution, as was the case
when the House Ways and .Means Com
mittee recommended the placing of a
tariff on trade between tlie United
States and Puerto Rico.
The tariff of 2o per cent of the Pdng
lev tariff was placed on imports from
riierto Rico at the instance of the sugar
and tobacco interests of the United
Stales, in order to prevent the sugar
and tobacco of Puerto Rico from com
.iptins on equal terms with those of the
United States. Tlie plain provision of
the Constitution. "All duties, imposts

It would constitute only a Just and
propel ly appreciative recognition of the
exceptionally eipeit service now n
qulrej of the Government railway post
al clerks if the bill providing lor au in-i-i
ease of salaries of these einpIoes
were passed at the present session of
the National Congress.
As a result of the .-listing classifica
tion of salailes in this department of
the governmental service, lirstvlass
railway mail expeits now receive less
compensation than did the old mail
route agent of former da.vs when the
exactions of the scrvb e were far less
arduous. The slaud.nd ot intelligent'
and professional training 's infinitely
higher than in times past, Ihe responsi
bility greater, the rules governing the
woik tar more strict. Common equity
would s.-em to demand a moie com
mensurate return for service of in
1 1 eased value to the community.
'I he life of a railway mail clerk is
one in which constant attention to and
readiness for duty is demanded, and in
which there is a never-ceasing danger
present while on duty. The hours are
long and iricgular. tin deprivation, con
sequent upon servii e of this nature are
many. The mental and physical strain
of the life is far beyond the average in
governmental or other service. It may
not fairly be denied that the salalies of
thee employes should al least reach the
average paid for first class lerical abil
ity and faithfulness.
It is a satisfactory guarantee of the
merits of the bill now awaiting Con
gressional action that its passage Is fa
vored b many leading Representatives,
among the number of its .supporters
being Speaker lleudetson himself.
The Ameiicaii people, while op
posed to c;traiagau'e in govern
mental affairM. have never faion-d
a parsimony causing injustice to deserv
ing public servants. The lailwa.i mail
clerk bill should be passed b Congress
In justice to this deserving class.
niscRi:irrs a nation.
In shutting oU' Puerto Rico's trade the
1 lined Slates Government would stand
l foie the world a self convicted hpo
ciite. Humanity, a disinterested desire
to improve the toildition of Cuba, to
lic it and the other Caiibbeau islands
from the oppression of Spanish rule
were ussigni-d by the United States as
their motive for making war on Spain.
Now at the very first chance the ITni
ti d Mates Government sets about es
tablishing laws Identical in principle and
eifect with tho-- which it shed Spanish
and American blood to abolish. It in
flicts au injury ou the island of Puerto
Rico; promises a law which discrimi
nates to the detriment of the island and
to tlie advantage of tellish private in
terests In tlie States.
Tins nation, with its history and its
traditions, cannot afford to so stand be
fore the world. It could better afford to
suffer material damage itself than to
inflict such injur ou the Islands It set
out lo free. Free trade with Puerto Rico
would not injuie the United States,
however. It might diminish the inor
dinate profits of a few tobacco and
Migur manufacturers, but the people of
the United States would be lienctitisi.
The tobacco and sugar manufnctHiersof
the United States would still have the
advantage of proximity to tlie market
and cheapness of transportation. That
is their fair natural adiantage. They
should asic for no more.
Tho very origin of this nation, all the
treasured sentiments of its statesmen,
forbid it to hold in vassalage a people
it takes under it.s protection. It threw
off the yoke of England on the Issue of
unjust taiaion. Its sympathy went out
to Ireland when that country asked the
right of untraiiitnIed tradi and fretted
under Kimland's tefiisal.
Now this nation piopies- to inllict on
Puerto Uieo the iujur.i which Knirl.u.d
iulltcted on the Industries of Ireland.
It projioses to stand in ihe plaee of the
Americans will n ver consent to re
main in that wroiif; position. They may
oivupy that positiun temporarily and
under protest, imt will icdei'iii national
traditions and i-hanuier at the llrst op
I tort unity of oiing.
