Tl Is anything but strange that 200.000
-!tics of Senator Bevoridges siH.ec hes
:i the Philippine question have been
burned by onltr of the Republican raai
aign inanagrrs, who preferred to thus
dispose of them rather than Rend theui
out as ICepublican campaign literature.
Mr. lievcridgti'a aioazing and bumiibt
ting "nugget of gold" line of argument
i. r the holding of the Philippine that
ui- should ignore all considerntion of
uslit and trron and retain the Islands
k,iy for the luouey there was in such
retention was in many respects the
moht ignoble icaaoning that has ever
lH--u.ueanI in tho United States Senate
So sordid was It, Indeed, that from the
very lirst it sickened and disgusted the
American people. There ba.ro been
lower mora striking esaicples of instant
and popular condemnation than has
been viaited on the head of the buck-hter-souled
Senator from Indiana. From
the very day of the delivery of Ids
nuKsut of gold" speech la the Senate
Mr. Bcveridge baa been an impotent
factor in American public life.
It is easy to believe the btory that
the managers of the Republican national
campaign aro exerting every effort poe-
siblo to bring out a full Republican vote
In Indiana, even going to the length of
demanding support at the polls from
fcucb of the Government's civil service
employes as happen to have a residence
and voting right in that Slate.
Indiana is not by any mean? as certain
for Uia Republican national ticket as the
campaign managers for Mr. McKinley
ivordd desire. It has been ttecullariy a'
doubtful State slnco the very day of
the passago of the infamous Porto Uican
Many Indiana Republicans, among
them ex-President Harrison, taw plain
ly tho sin and -bame of this wrong
placed upon a helpless people, and pro
tested vigorously against it. Tho dis
affection in Republican ranks in Indiana
is a disaffection based on principle, not
on factional quarreling, and it has
grown witb the fuller realization of the
ominous meaning of the Porto Rican
It is for this reason, therefore, that
undue pressure is being brought to bear
to compel government employes, even in
civil service classes to vote the Re
publican ticket in Indiana.
ANYTHING BUT "ROT."
'Americans do not agree with Senator
Hanna that "This no-called trust issue
is the veriest rot"; that "In tho strict
meaning of the laws of this country
thcre aro no trusts."
Every American who has observed the
upward trend of prices of certain prod
ucts at a time when no natural law
warranted tuch an increase, and who
lias noticed that these products Invari
ably were manufactured by trusts,
knows that the trust Issue is substan
tial. No Increase in wages or in the pur
chasing power of money has accom
panied the Increased prices.
Farmers know that it requires CO per
cent more wheat to buy a stove and a)
bushels more corn to buy a wagon than
It required in ISStk Theso increases are
due to the activity of trusts.
Cotton planters know that It taiies 40
per cent more cotton to buy a ltoutid
of sugar than it took in 15tMJ.
Erery observing housewito knows
iliat foodstuffs and household supplies
manufactured by trusts have increased
in price since 1SQ0. Sugar, matches,
illuminating oil, cookiug and table oils,
beers and tablo liquors; . fresh, salted,
pickled and canned mcatn; fresh and
canned fish and oysters; crackers and
staple bakers' wares have risen in price.
In some Instances the increase in price
has been veiled b change la the name
of the ware, but tho grade and cot-t of
manufacture have remained unchanged
despite the raise In price.
These are tangible facta that confront
the people. They are facts which bc-e-oiue
knoti n through that best and most
delicate of agencies the pocketbook.
Ordinary people do not agree with' Man
ila that the trust itsue is "tho veriest
IN THE TKl'ST'S NAME.
It is not probable that the A merit an
people are ohlhious to the rieii.uiii
fact that lnercnse of trust inflneueo in
this country mean.-, not only the utter
subjection of individuals to the exar
tions of tho monopolies but tho placing
of the Government UseIC under absolute
The passage of the Porto IMean larilf
bill at the dictation of tho Sugar and
Totafvo trusts, and especially under
direct pre.ure brought t . bear by the
former, contained all the necosary
proof of this certainty of absolute tru.t
control of the Government if the af
fairs of government are to b( adminis
tered by Mr. MeKiuley and id follow
ing. The story of the retorsai of the
President's portion on the Porto Uican
tariff bill, and of the President's own
compuKiou of a similar reversal in the
eases of certain Republicans in the Na
tional Congress all done under indexi
ble oiders from trust sources I one of
the most shameful stories in American
When, after having declared In bH
message of lJeeember, POO, that it was
our duty to extend free trade to Porto
Rico, the President took an exactly op
posite iwsitiou and used his luduem e to
comiH'l certain Republican Congressmen
to c-ase tin ir opu;tion to the l'tirto
Ricao taiiff hill as tliese Cougresmn
themselves announced on the floor in ex
plaining their change of base it be
came apparent that there was some
power at Washington bigger than tho
President, bigger than the National Con
gress; bo big. indeed, that at its bidding
the iTesidcnt and a Republican Con
gress came servile at its feet, received
its orders and obeyed them with all
haste and completeness of detail. This
nas a startling and ominous diseoveiy.
Nor was it long before tho people
knew this supreme power in the persc-n
of Henry Oxnard, representative of the
Sogar Trust, a man who In a few days
achieved the distinction of having
forced the President of the United
States to repudiate his own policy an
nounced in an official nicvage to Con
gress and to whip into line such Re
publican Congressmen as &till saw tit
to oppose the unconstitutional tariff tax
on Porto Rican products. Mr. Oxiianl
was swift and remorseless in the exer
cise of his tremendous power whet he
read President McK In ley's message ad
vocating that free trade to which Porto
Rico was entitled, and realized that the
National Congress was preparing to
give free trade to Porto Rico. He made
haste to assert his power over the Presi
dent; he hurried before the House Com
mittees on Ways and Means and on In
sular Affairs with his declaration of
what ho desired should be done; In the
name of the Sugar Trust ho issued his
orders and those orders were obeyed.
The Porto lUcan tariff bill was passed.
IMs is a sample of governmental dom
ination by the trusts if the MeKiuley
administration remains In office. Do
the American people want such domina
tion? Do they realize what it means if
the trusts are to control tho Govern
ment, as well as the markets, of this
country? If to tbey will, vote in Novem
ber against a trust-ridden ad ministra
tion as the most serious menace now
visible in American life.
JUSTICE TOR PORTO RICO.
In the legal fight now being begun by
a distinguished Porto Rican to estab
lish his right to register and vote In
this country as an American citizen the
national honor and good faitb of this
Government Ls vitally Involved.
When General Mile3 invaded Porto
Rico at tho bead of an American army
ho Issued a proclr-matlon pledging to tho
Porto Rictus, iu the name of the Ameri
can Goveriimmt, all tf.e rights and
privileges of American citizenship a.s tho
sure result of their island coming under
American control. Accepting this as
surance, the natives wcicotm-d General
Miles and the American army with the
greatest ft lendliuesb. They were so
pleased and proud, Indeed, that they
straightway began calling themselves
"Americanos," and celebrated in tliclr
churches the American overthrow of the
cruel power of Spain.
It is held by eminent American coun
sel, notably by the. attorney of the very
Hoard of Election Suiiervlsors In Balti
more which is n-fuslng to allow the
Porto Rieau, I octor 1'raacfseo del Valb
to rtisUr as a voter, that with tne
Treaty of Paris, ceding Porto Rieo to
the United Slates, the act of annexation
operated as a naturalization of the na
tive Porto Rlcans. To a fairmiuded
American, not seeking to evade the jnst
responsibilities Incurred by us In an
nexing Porto Rico, this seemis irmiil Taw
Its acceptance menus, of course, that
every Porto Rican is now a full-fledged
While it is true that this acceptance
would make invalid tho infamous Porto
Rican tariff bill passed at the dictation
of the Sugar and Tobacco trusts. Inas
much as wo cannot constitutionally
place such a lax uiton one element of
American dtizenehip with other ele
ments free of iu burden, this lact must
not prevail to necessitate another and
greater wrong against a helpless peo
ple. Tho Porto Ricaus welcomed the
promise of American citizenship with
touching gratltudo aud joy. Shall we
now break that promise even more
definitely than was done by the pas
stigo of the tariff bill thus making of
the Porto Ricaus a people without a
country, without a liag, without tational
protection, without citizenship, without
a voice in government; without any
thing, iu fact, but the privilege of pay
ing tribute to tiic American trusts'.'
MISSOURI GAINS ONE.
Missouri can congratu!a?o herself on
the probability that she will gain a
Congressman as a result uf the appor
tionment following the census of 1'JvX).
This apportionment Is the real object
of tho decennial census taken in the
United States. The Constitution of tho
United States provides that "Represent
atives and direct taxes shall be appoi
ti'jncd uriong the several Stales which
may be included within tills Union ac
cording to their respective numbers. Tha
actual enumeration shall be made with-
in threo j ears after He first meeting
of Congress ami within every subse
quent term of -en years in such a man
lier as they shall by law direct."
Missouri's gain is likely to lie exceed
ed by only titee States -Now York.
Pennsylvania and Illinois each of
which may gain tuo Congressmen.
The nuiulier of electoral voles also de
pends on the- represcntalloH in Con
gress The States w ith large elect rai
representation a quire marked Impor
tance during pre-uienti.il campaign.
The reapportionment will probably be
enacted at the siiort session ot the pivs
ent Congress, i ud to the Slate l."gi-l.
ture chosen at the :ipproach!ug cli turn
may fall the duly of deciding how the
lle'V (impress nau is to be chosen -whether
at Iaro or by a rvadJuMiut nt

They should, however, carefully heed
the warnings ho gives. Boil the drink

uncooked vegetables. Physicians should
pnmiptly report all caes to the health

Flfty-forth, hai the State of Missouri failed

that tody so many Democrats refrained
from voting that most of the districts sent
Republicans to the House. Personally, they
were ver nice gentlemen, but they were
without experience in public affairs and
were out of their element. They took no
part In debate They were without Influ
ence, and for an thing they accomplished
their districts might as well havo been un
represented. Mlssourlans aisilogized for them, saying
that If it luol been suppo-iod the districts
could go Republican, other inn would havo
been nominated; in other words, tiiat these

SeH House Will He Ueiiioeriitli'.
It would bo especially untimely If a dis
triit in Missouri should full this fall to re
turn Hi Democratic Iteplesentative. There
Is every indication that the Huuse will go
JirmiH rallc. This result ls predicted by tlie
managers of tho Republican Consressional
Campaign Committee, when talking con
fidentially to their trlends. This would in
sure the older Demoe ratio members chair
manships. The Demo-tats from Missouri
have been eiclally well placed on com
mit, to and foiluwiug custom they will bo
promt ted to chairmanships of the saina
committees. Thus tlie blal would gain a
iiwrn commanding iwsition lu Congress.
It now has such a position In tho Senat
due to tha long and ablo servioo of Senators
Coekrell and t.-t. What this ls worth to
thu State was shown in the last session,
when Senators Vest and Coekrell, because
of their jwsitions on leading Senate com-mitte-es.
were ubl to EOeuro an appro
priation of JJ,(w.lyi jor tha St. Louis
World's Fair. Had Senator Coekrell not
been a member of tho Appropriations Com
mittee and Senator A est of tho Commitleo
on impositions, UiU largo appropriation
(probably would havo foiled lu tlie Senate;
and it would have been defeated in tho
llouso but for tho work done b the Mis
souri Democrats. Tho work of the latter
could not liavo been psrformed, but for tho
piomineuce of their committee places.
With a Democratic House dally proof of
this auvantago would bo had to tho great
benefit of tho State. Tho election of a Re
publican would mean that the district repre
sented by him would have-a man at the foot
of tho least important of the committees.
That is tho custom of aligning new men
In tho House.
In the Iiest. especially In Now CnglanU,
tho custom of re-electing useful members
has grown steadily. Tho result generally
la held to be of advantage to tho district
ami the State It was this sjstem which
dually gavo Maine in oue Congress the
Speakership, the Chairmanship of Ways
and Means, of Naval und I'ub.ic Affairs and
Public llulldicss and Gioumis, and which
gave Illinois eight chairmanships In tho
present House, including Appropriations
and Foreign Affairs.
