HANDCUFFS FOR P *ANE SOLDIERS.

At first it was thought that they

from escaping or doing themselves
Another lot of insane soldiers is
now on the way to Washington from

colony of their comrades confined at
St. Elizabeth's, the go\ ment asy

He took thc ground that tho Phil
ippines arc rightfully and legally
ours by tho treaty of Paris, and
that thc United States should Imbi
them, affording the Filipinos every
opportunity to acquire thc art of
government and givimr them all the
powers and rights possible in the
circumstances. He dwelt particu
larly on thc great opportunities af
forded by the islands for trade be
tween Americans and the nations of
the Orient. Ho did not agree with
some of his colleagues "M the Demo
cratic side that our trade in the
Hast was a mere figment of thc im
agination. Ile quoted statistics to
prove that the experience of thc last
decade contradicted those who as
serted that our Eastern trade was
not of immense consequence.
"It is in thc Orient," he said, "that
we must look for markets. There
must bc a (.bango in our policy. We
must enter into actual competition
for ibis trade. Wo must as a nation
recognize changed conditions, and I
believe that by holding the Philip
pines our trade in the Orient will
continue to increase until all surplus
products for years to come will hud
remunerative markets in thc East."
"1 am glad," said he, "to believe
that the Southern people have de
termined to investigate ami study
this question rather than to be lcd
blindly by political anti-expansion
ists. Thc Southern farmer, by thc
increased price received for raw cot
ton last year, has become aroused.
Fealty to party and misleading in
formation, I fear, has produced
among them opposition to territorial
expansion. Tho effort has been
made in my own Stale to suppress
all information and arouse public
sentiment against expansion. The
frightful ghost of 'imperialism* has
been to frighten them, but 1
believe it impossible much longer to
thus mislead them."
Senator McLaurin said, in sketch
ing the progress of lin; South during
tho past twenty years, that thc blight
of negro suffrage and negro domina
tion had almost extinguished hope
and energy, and manly effort, but,
like a giant bound with fetters, she
aroused herself al last and again
started ilpili an era of industrial life.
"Capital has Unwed into that
section," said he. "There is confi
dence in all Southern enterprises.
Tho bitter memories of thc past are
being forgotten in the rush of tho
development of our resources. Our
people feel that they aro again a
part of this groat country, and are
left free and untrammelled to work
out their own destiny. Our South
j ern manufacturers have already
' reached out to the markets of thc
()rient and discovered their ad van -
j luges. The Southern farmer needs
such markets for his raw cotton to
j make its production remunerative.
"Hy the acquisition of thc J 'hil
j ippit)CH we hold ?he key to the East
ern situation. Wo need not rely
solely upon treaty rights to secure
thc 'open door,' but can demand
equal commercial opportunity with
other nations, and if necessary, willi
thc vantage ground wo have, assert
that demand. Will thc Knited Slates
throw awiiy tlx* golden opportunity
by giving up the Philippines? I am
in favor of holding them, and
I believe thc; Southern farmers and
manufacturers will sustain me in my
position. I believe further that tho
presence of the United States, and
of its Hag, tin* emblem of human
freedom, progress and civilization,
will carry to the millions in tho
Orient unnumbered blessings, which
in the coming years will be for their
betterment and amelioration, and
will conduce to tho perpetuity ami
glory of our freo institutions, and
the commercial supremacy of the
