Lieutenant Hohson's discovery at

huing for a divorce from the former
champion hcavy-Tt eight pugilist of tho

It is one oT tho recurring humors of

that they will carry Missouri for their

attract the attention of the country at
And, although these same Missouri
Republicans manage to keep straight
faces while manufacturing this hulla
baloo about Republican victory in Mis

that they themselves are oblivious to the

ing a great bluff game for revenue, and

War, acting In behalf cf the President,
for a report on conditions now existing

Philippine Commission testifj to their
gratitude for appointment to o.'liee at

This is faithful pence on the pait of
the Taft Commission, and will duubtliss
bo so regarded and remembered by Mr.
McKInley. The Commission's grateful
conviction that tho Pihpinos count upon
Democratic success at tho polls as their
sole hope for the success of their own
causo is ciprc-i..sed at a time when it
cm be used to the best advantage by
Republican organs and fttiuip speakers.
That the members of the Commission
know It will be so used is apparent 111
the tone of the report Itself. The docu
ment has all the earmarks of a cam
The President and his Imperial follow
ing are pl.ijlug both Cuba and the
Philippines in partisan politics for all
they are worth. Still faihug to grant
to the Cubans tint national independ
ence which we pioimsed to them In our
declaration of war against Spain, Mr.
McKInley has so arranged his inako-bi-Iieve
programmo of fululluicut of this
pledge as to reap the fullest political
advantage possible. The Cuban Con
stitutional Convention, a supposed ad
auce toward Cuban independence, is
to meet on November f, just one day
prior to tho American national elec
tions. As preeenling "proofs'' that our
pledge to Cub 1 will be kept, this Is ex
pected to have a tremendous effect on
tho American people, while in reality
committing the administration to noth
ing definite. And now, being "tipped
off" bj a cablegram ficun Washington,
the Taft Commission comes to the front
with its promise of immediate peace in
the Philippines If Mr. McKmley is re
elected. If America's lirst Imperial President
is ro-elecled. whether or not the people
of the Philippines consent, they will b
governed as a colonial dependency of an
Kmpire-Republic. If Mr. McKInlej is
re elected President, and if it is possible
to carpetbag presume and esercNe of
power on the Island, the people of Cuba
will be tricked out of their independ
ence. Roth the Philippines and Cuba
will then feel the heavy hand of an
alien and greedy master as Porto Rico
has already felt that hand They will
be the prey of the trusts, taxed for trust
aggrandizement, surrendered body and
Foul to trust rapacity. It is for this
purpose that the trusts have bound Mr.
McKInley to the policy of Imperialism.
Thin Is tho teaching of recent events
a teaching too plain to be misunder
stood. It rests with the American peo
ple to say If so great shame and dis
honor shall come upon their country and
IT HE ONLY WOLLD.
Republican Bidell and Populist Ovir
street, rival candidates for the Legis
lature from Comanche County, Kansas,
hare set a good example by binding
themselves in a ?.Vi0 bet not to spend
one cent toward tntlurneing a vote In
the November elections.
It would be a glorious th.ng for this
country If one Mark Hanna of Ohio
could be Induced to honestly follow the
example, thus set by theso Kansas men.

for Mr. McKInley, whom he and his em
ployers, tk American trusts, desire

Think of what a fair expression of tho
popular American will would be secured
if Mark Hanna lef rained from using
this slush fund of $30,000,000 for tho
pujpose of preventing such expression.
Tho people, making up tiieir minds free
from unduo or unworthy influences,
would go to tho polls, each and every
ono of them, and vote th"lr American
principles. AVeak or pitiably needy men,
shielded from the temptation of money,
would icmaln masters of themselves
nnd of their ballots. It la an ideal pie
turo to contemplate, this of a general
election In which the use of blush funds
cuts no figure.
Tho shamo of it is. however, that Han
na will not follow tho Kansas example.
He is in public life on a money baIs
solely. He was placed there by the
trusts to look after their money Inter
ests in politics. He bus milHocs at his
command to bo used In so influencing
elections In this country that the amass

the expense of the pcoplo shall be made

not to use one cent toward influencing

AN OMINOUS REPORT.
There Is a very serious Indictment of
American civilization in the oiiicial re
port of the corps of medical men of the
State of Pennsylvania who have Just
completed an investigation of the living
condition of the coal miners 111 the
AVyoming A'aliey district.
, These physicians, appointed as a com
mittee to represent the Medical Society
of theiV State then In annual conv cation
in AVilkesbarre, v isited the homes of the
miners and made a careful and paius
taking inquiry. It is to bo assumed
that their work has been entirely un
prejudiced, nnd their standing as physi
cians testiiles to their qualifications for
The Investigating corps finds the liv
ing conditions of the miners in the
AVyoming A'aliey district "utterly inade
quate for tho securing of a normally
healthy existence, both In food bupply
and hygienic home arrangements."
AVhen the medical men constituting tho
corps of Inquiry returned to AVilkes
barre, It is stated, they wore grave and
studious faces. "As far as we have
been able to ascertain," their official re
port concludes, "by conversation with
the families in question, their deplor
able condition Is due to the fact that
they cannot obtain living wages."
This ghastly truth should not be pos
sible in American life of to-day. Tills
is the richest and most, prosperous
country In the world. The corporations
employing these men on starvation
wages are multimillionaire corporations.
Their many millions have been made
from the labor of the men w hose living
conditions me now reported as being
"utterly inadequate for the securing of
a normally healthy existence." It is not
that the miners are idlers and vagrants.
They work hard, and are glad to be
allowed to work hard. Rut they are not
paid the worth of their work. The slg
nihcance of the report of the Pennsyl
vania medical men is ominous.
EMPIRE MADE MANIFEST.
In its government of the Indian Ter
ritory the McKmley udministration,
through various otlleials evidently im
bued with the imperial .s-plrit now pos
nessiug the President himself, is fur
nishing an Illustration of the workings
of Empire which should not be over
looked by the American people.
It has already been shown, nnd es
pecially in tLe case of rcxler.il Judge
1 bonus, how the imperiilisis at AVash
ington are seeking to destroy the inde
pendence of the judiciary by threaten
ing witli removal fiom oflue such as
dare to render decisions contrary to the
Vitus held by administration oflicials.
The Imperialists do not hesitate to ad
vocate the theory that in this section of
the United States the power of the Gov
ernment's agents and of the military is
buiiremt' above that of tho Constitution
and of judicial rulings based on the
Constitution. Federal Judges who ven
ture to hold a different opinion fall
promptly under the ban of the adminis
tration and are anything but secure In
their positions on the bench.
Among the more recent Instances of
tills manifestation of the imperial spirit
In American Government is the case of
ono F. M. Smith of A'inita. 1. T.. who,
removed from tho Territory under the
provisions of section "Jli'J of tho Re
v ised Statutes of the United Stat s, for
lefusing to pay tne tribal export tax: on
hay shipped to the States, has found the
imperial power of a United States In
dian Inspector equal to the task of sus
pending the laws of the land and au
thorizing him to retiun without incur
ring the penalties prescribed for such
offenses. Theie is no question of the
offense, as there Is also no question of
tho Inspector's violation of the law,
villi the sanction of the Secretary of
the Interior, in permitting Iiim to cscap-i
tho i-onsc'quences. The "authority of
the department" has been exercise-d as
being more potent than the law, and
superior to the law when department
otheinls may so decree.
That this Is high handed and danger
ous Imperialism to a degree m.iy not
for a moment be denied. The Smith
cao Is a logical sequence to the perse
cution of Judge Thomas. It is based
on the Washington idea thai the Con
stitution and the law are inferior to the
will of tho administration in the Indian
Territory. It is an instance of the arro
gance of centralized government which
would not require much e-neouragement
to be extended to the States. It cer
tainly demands the attention of the
American people as an ominous sign of
