There has seldom been a time when
there was manifest a more lively in
terest in the United States Navy than
at the present time. The appropri
ations of the reoent oongresB for the
purpose of inoreasicg the efficiency of
the navy have been a source of grati
fication to most citizens of the nation,
and the navy department is now using
every endeavor to seoure the prompt
expenditure of the appropriation along
the lines for wbioh it was made.
. In rm interview at New York a few
days ago ex-President Cleveland said
that he did not assume to have any
direction or weight in the manage
ment of pplitioal affairs, advisory or
otherwise. He prediot?d that the
trust question wonld not be elimina
ted from the next presidential canvass
and thought. it impossible to divorce
it from thc tariff issue, A good old
fashioned insistence on tariff reform
lie considered a -necessity, for its own
sake and what it would do for the peo

An exchange very truly says: "It
is no discredit to a man to have en
emies and opposition. Many men
hesitate to take any course that will
call forth the opposition of any per
son, beoauso they do not want to have
enemies. The world is full of envious
people. Some people bato a man be
cause he is successful in business or
occupies a prominent position io a
community. Tho world has no ani
mosity toward thc quiet oitizou, who
offends no one, gets in nobody's way.
It is the livo men, the men of push
and energy, who incur!enmity. Every
mau who is fearless in the discharge
of his obligation in any station of life
Complaint is often heard against
women usurping men's places in trades
and professions, but nowadays there
are numbers of men who earn their
living by work that is supposed to be
exclusively feminine. A prominent
member of a domestic soienoe associa
tion and an aotive worker in the in
terests of women wage earners, em
ploys men houseworkers, and says
tl at she will never have a woman cook
or housemaid again. A Westrrn paper
tells of a college student wbo adds to
his income by painting dinner cards
and menus; a man who goes from
house to house washing dishes and
deaning house; a man who washes
lace curtains; and another who bakes
delioious breakfast rolls for a select
circle of fastidious people. AH these

Eolith Carolina should I ave th
berti exhibit poB.siblo at thu St. Louis
Exposition. Tho Legislature has
failed to ninko an appropriation for
this purpose, which in our judgment
was a mistake. This ia to be tho great
est Bhow, perhaps, that thc world has
ever seen, and it will pay South Caro
lina to have a prominent place ia the
picture. Gov. Ileyward and tho Co
lumbia Chamber of Commerce have
done well to undertake tho work of
arousing interest in this matter, and it
is hoped that every County in the
State will fall in line and make the
effort a big success.
OUR WASHINGTON LETTER.
Special Correspondence of Intelligencer.
Washington, D. C., March21, 1003.
Both the treaties have been ratified,
for which purpose the Hen ate was con-*
vened in extra session. There never
was much opposition to the ratification
of the Panama Cauui treaty tm the part
of the Democrats, provided they could
get certain amen (hu ont H added to it
that would give this government ab
solute control of the canal. The Demo
crats have not got all they want in tho
troaty, but it hus been modified some
what, and ns both parties nre commit
ted to a canal of Home kind and some
where, it probably will go through.
There is doubt expressed here, how
ever, that the canal ever will bo built.
There hus been no denying tho strenu
ous opposition to any canal by the
transcontinental railroads of the coun
try, and it is the freely expressed be
lief hero that those roads will find some
way io circumvent the building of the
canal. It will bo interesting to watch
the work of tho railroads now.
So far as tho Cuban reciprocity treaty
is concerned, the Democrats have won
a signal victory over the Republicana.
As 1 said in a former letter, it was the
intention of the Democrats to talk the
treaty to death unless they could get
all they contended for, and when the
Republicans saw them line up as ono
man under the able leadership of the
Hon. Arthur Rue Gorman, they capit
ulated and came down like Scott's
coon. It is the first timo in years that
the Democrats in the Senate haye pre
sented an unbroken front to the Re
publicans. When they have done so
in the past they invariably havo won a
victory. The trouble has been that in
the recent past they have had no
leadership in the Senato worthy the
name. They have it now, and the re
sults are apparent to the most casual
observer. Tfie Dem?crata said to the
Republicans that they must add an
amendment to the Cuban reciprocity
treaty that would give tho House of
Representatives the right to also pass
upon it beforo it became operative, be
cause it was legislation that affected
thc revenues cf thc government, and
that all such legislation must havo the
concurrent aauctien of tho House of
Representatives, or elso it would not
bo constitutional legislation. It would
bo practically eliminating the House
ns one of the legislative branches of
the government and legislation by tho
Senate exclusively. It will be remem
bered that the House at tho first ses
sion of the 07th Congress passed a law
giving Cuba this reduction in the rates
of the Dingley law that is asked for,
but it also tacked on to it a clause that
eliminated the differential on refined
sugar, which would eave tho consumers
of this country millions of dollars an
nually that now go into the pockets of
the sugar trust. For that very reason
the Senate refused to consider the
measure and let it die. It now comes
to the front with the treaty, giving the
anmo reduction in the Dingley rates,
butitdoeanot remove the differential
on refined sugar which gives the con
sumer in this country a chance, and
clearly is an attempt to play into the
hands of the sugar trust. The Repub
licans have been forced to agree
to the amendment to allow the
House to pass on the treaty when it
meets nest winter. If they had net
agreed to it they would not havo got
away from here all summer, or else
would have been forced to abandon
the treaty altogether. The net result
of this Democratic victory will be that
the House next winter will either add
the amendment again, eliminating the
differential on refined sugar,- or if it
Basses the House as sent to it by the
enate. then the Democrats in the Sen
ate will open up the tariff debate in
Its entirety and consume tho whole
session in speeches that will be made
in open session, and will go to the
country ns Democratic campaign docu
ments. In either event the trusts will
get it in the neck and the people will
be benefited. Score one for the Demo
A number of the leaders of the
Democratic party who still are in
Washington are to-day discussing the
letter of Mr. William Randolph Hearst
to the Iroquois Club of Chicago, and
wbioh appeared to-day in the daily
papers. It is a letter expressing his re
Set and hia inability to be present at
eir annual banquet to do reverence
bo the memory of Andrew Jackson,
md in it he breathes forth the very
spirit and essence of true Democracy.
Lt is a message of optimism and hopo
to the true Democrats of the whole
country/ and* in every way is such an
ible paper that it has caught the atten
tion of the lead?' rs of the party here,
.vho mention it in the most complimen
tary way. There are a few persona
EV ho, not knowing Mr. Hearst, actually
think that because ho has money he
loos no work himself, and that the
mieles signed by himself, are written
)v some of the bright mon in his em
ploy. There never was a grouter mis
take made by them. The writer knows
Mr. Hearst personally, and knows that
io is an abler man than any man in hia
?mploy, and does more actual work
han nny of them.
It would seem as though tho trusts,
.athor than the government of the
. fm ted States, were Bhapicg our policy
n the Philippine Islands. Despite all
the appeals made by tho President and
^averno" Taft, Congress did nothing
towards .elioving tho economic dis
tress prevailing in those island*. It
)assod neither currency nor tariff logis
ation of the kind asked for by the
commercial classes of the islands. It
isa preferred to obey the wishes of the
tobacco and sugar trusts rather than
comply with those of the suffering mil
ions of people. This Republican Con
rrcas has been guilty of gross negli
gence of duty by not passing legisla
tion in the interest of the people of
those islands. They are compelled to <
rely on our good will and charity, and
lave the right to demand help of some
dud from us. By thus refusing to do
my thing for tho Filipinos this Repub
lican Congress has pat a premium on
lisorder and insurrection, and it would
int be at all surprising if the Ameri
can army in the Philippines finds itself,
t>efOre long, basier than it Ima been
[or some tune. The policy of imperial
em is bx inging its own reward.
lt is behoved here, by the peoplo who
in?ht 'o know, that the recent visit to
this capital by J. Pierpont Morgan and
lis call on the President means aa
?tera session of the 58th Congress, and
that it will be called sometime early
n the mouth- of September, lt is be
lieved that Mr. Mo/gan said to tho
President that hu and tho money "kim;
ot Wall KI veut could not atave oft'a
pauic longer than September unless
there -vas legislation that would re
lievo them. It other words, they want
thu Aldrich hill nussod, KO that the
money 'BOW in tue treasury can bo
plated in the banks on Wall street and
relieve tho pressure on them. Thus is
this administration not only run by
the Wall street gang, but it approves a
policy that takes the money out of the
?collie's pocket and places it in the
auks of the country, sc that they can
loan it back to the poople and make a
pro?t out of them.
The remedy is in tl io hands of tho
people. Charles A. Edwards.
