THE PRESIDENT AND CUBA.
That portion of President Cleveland's
message In which he discusses the Cuban
question will meet with the views of the
great mass of thoughtful citizens who
look at the present situation in Cuba. A
great and powerful nation cannot inter
fere with the right of another govern
ment to subdue an insurrection, when
the insurgents have not even assumed
the character of an independent civil
government. The rights of nations are
governed by treaties, which constitute
the code of national law. Viewing mat
ters from this standpoint the president is
correct iu saying that there is but one
goverument in Cuba, and that is the
government of Spain. The insurgents
have no civil government in fact. Theirs
is purely military, sustained by force of
arms, ami migrating with the move
ment of their armies. While the Presi
dent concedes the rightful sympathy of
our citizens with those who are op
pressed by Spanish rule, lie is not will
ing to involve us in international war,
by involving us in international law.
He proposes the peacolul aid of the
United States in securing from Spain a
form of self government for Cuba, based
on just principles, that will enable the
dependency to regulate their own domes
tic, afllairs, and a guaranty on the part of
this nation that the Cubans shall fulfill
their part of the contract. It is hoped
that an end will soon come to the strife.

The above is what this paper has ad
vocated from the beginning of the
trouble. The innocent people on the
island have and wiir suffer untold perse
cutions, but it is one of the cases when
it will not do to interfere, unless it be to
first offer suggestions to the authorities
in Spain for a peaceful solution of the
A case was decided by the circuit court
in Cleveland last week affirming the ver
dict of the lower court, which held that
the proprietors and premises were re
sponsible for judgments obtained for
the return of money lost by gambling.
If the case is affirmed by the supreme
court it will be hard blow to property
owners who have leased their premises to
gambling sharks, but it will doubtless
be the means of causing property owners
to be more careful in the future.
According to the resolution passed by
the senate and house of representatives
there will be no more intoxicating
liquor sold in the capital building at
Washington, D. C. On several occasions
the speaker and vice-president have is
sued orders prohibiting the salo.but there
was such a strong element among the
members to have a grog shop near by
that it could not bs enforced.
Some redliot Cubau resolutions have
been offered in the senate, two providing
for recognition of independence and one,
by Mills of Texas, for forcible occupa
tion by the U. S. until the Cubans have
organized a government. It is not like
ly that any of them will be adopted.

A Weekly lludit or InHresUne News
from the Capital.
Washington, Dec 11. Although the
fix bolting senators-Teller, Pettigrew,
Dubois, Cannon, Squire and Mantle-declined
to avail themselves of the invita
tion to attend the cancus of republican
senators, four out of th five who are in
Washington Mr. Teller hasn't arrived
have declared themselves to still be re
publicans npon everything except the
silver question. Senator Dubois says he
is out of the republican party for good
and all and announces in advance that
he would vote against the Dingley bill if
it were brought to a vote and intimates
rather strongly that he would vote
against anything that originates on the
republican side of the senate. It is be
lieved that Mr. Dubois is playing to the
prejudices of the anti-repuplican mem
bers of the Idaho legislature, in order to
save himself from being retired to pri
vate lite. '
The republican house is keeping up
tho record it made at the last session as
a business body. It has already passed
the pension appropriation bill, a bill
allowing the use of privato postal cards
with one cent stamps ued on them, a
bill providing for a limited indemnity of
$10 for the loss of registered mail matter,
a bill authorizing privato letter carriers
in villages where there is no free delivery
aud a number of minor bills, including
some private pensions.
SpeakorReed and Chairman Hanna
met for the first time, in tho speaker's
private office at the capitol, this week
and a very cordial meeting it was on
both sides, according to the six or eight
prominent republicans who were pres
ent. Mr. Ilanna has mado many new
friends during his shortstayin Washing
ton and some of those who made his ac
q uaintance have a very different idea of the
kind of man he is than they had before
coming iu contact with him. Although
it is the general opinion of those who
have talked with Mr. Hanna that he will
not be a member of the cabinet, he ex
pressed such h liking for Washington
that some think that ho will be unable
to stand the temptation of a four year's
residence in the city.
W. C. T. C.
The church has long since declared
uncompromising war on the liquor
traffic, hording that this traffic is a
most deadly foe to the church, damning
more souls than any other one evil, or
than many other evils combined.
The New York Tribune in its indict
ment of the liquor traffic, declares that
"it silences the voice of religion."
Canon Farrer says: VImportant as
great questions in English politics may
be, such as the franchise and the land
laws, they are matters absolutely infin
itesimal compared with the urgency of
the necessity of controlling and limiting
with a strong hand this drink question."
Who will question that it is the busi
ness of the church to attack with all its
might an evil of this nature and of
these proportions, but where attack it?
Certainly where it is. The saloon is in
trenched today as never before in poli
tics. Is it not then the business of the
church to make it stupendous power felt
against tho liquor traffic where it is now
There are about eighty thousand
preachers of God's word in the United
States. There are from four to six mill
ions (estimated) voters who belong to the
churches in which these ministers
preach. The power of the christian pul
pit in America is a trememdous one, and
when it is firmly set in fixed array
against a concrete evil, that power be
c jmcs well-nigh irresistable. If the min
isters of America have tremendous pow
ers, they have also tremendous respon
sibilities, which tbey could not evade
even if they wished to. Despite the in
structions which havo for many years
provailed in thousands of public schools
concerning the true nature of alcoholic
liquors; despite the ringing utterances
which great church councils have made
on this subject, nevertheless the flood
Of iiarcoticizing, soul-destroying, crime
producing, murder-iuspiring liquors Is
growing deeper and deeper year by year.
Something is wrong. What i9 it? It is
not in the utterances of the churches,
they were never so forcible and uncom
promising as of late years, it Is not in
the habits of the clergy, for the whole
tendency is toward total abstinence
among them. It is not In the power
available, that is still as limitless as om
nipotence itself. Does not the trouble
lie in the application of this power?
The saloon has become a vast organized
power, controlling a quarter of a million
of saloons, receiving over one billion of
yearly revenue, swaying where desirable,
a million rotes at the lowest estimate,
this power Is brought to bear with crush
ing effect upon political leaders and can
didates. A prominent politician boasted: "I
would rather have one saloon behind me
than a dozen churches." Why Is this?
Is It not because the churches have fail
ed to pursue the saloon Into the realm of
politics? Has not the time come when
the power of the preacher, the power of
the church, should make themselves felt
in this battle? We know the objections
that are made to the preachers engaging
actively In politics, but the warfare
against a great moral evil such as the
drink curse is pre-eminent one for the
preachers to wage. It Is their fight, if
there ever was one that was theirs, It it
takes them into politics, they should not
draw Dacx on mat account.
