TRYING TO SQUARE HIMSELF.
Senator Wellington has written a
letter to a friend in Washington in
which he tries to wriggle out of t he very
unpleasant situation in which he finds
himself through his intemperate ut
terances over the assassination of
President McKinley. The senator has
been expelled from several organiza
tions in Maryland, of which he w-as a
member, and has also been the sub
ject of very severe newspaper criti
cism, and he has discovered his mis
take. In this letter he says he gave
no interview to the newspapers ex
pressing' indifference to the shooting
of President McKinley but refused
again and again to say anything for
publication "for the reason that
McKinley had done me such injury
that I could never forgive and 1 felt
that it would be better to say nothing
at this time." He adds: '-As to the
crime of Czolgosz, I hardly think it
necessary to say that I, like yourself,
abhor an assassin, and I am as much
appalled at the crime which struck
down the president as any of his
warmest friends. I do not think that
anyone who knows me would for a
moment believe that I would look ,
with indifference upon an act of this
kind, when it strikes at the govern ,
ment itself and affects every citizen
therein. Our list of murdered presi j
dents has been far too great, and
some drastic law should be passed to
prevent another national tragedy like
that enacted at Buffalo."
If the senator had made such a
statement as that at the time he was
asked for an expression of opinion,
instead of saying; "it was a matter of
supreme indifference to him,", he
would have saved himself from much
criticism, as well as from the present
very unpleasant situation he finds
himself in. He would not now feel
called upon to write any letters of ex
A new agitation has been started
on the question of statehood. Many
of the eastern papers speak more fav
orably of the admission of Arizona
than they have done in the past. It
is also stated that President Roose
velt is in favor of admission. So far
as sentiment is concerned argument people, even of his political oppon
is all in favor of admission and the euts. to such a great degree as he did.
only argument that can be adduced
against it is the financial condition
existing. With one or two exceptions
the several counties of the territory
are on the verge of bankruptcy and
are only kept from being precipitated
into that condition by a high rate of
taxation which almost amounts to
confiscation. There seems to be no
hope for improving this condition of
affairs, as each succeeding legislature
only seems to plunge it still deeper
in debt, and appropriates money for
all manner of useless and unnecessary
At present the governor, secretary
judges and legislators are paid by the
general government. The salaries of
governor and legislators are inade
quate to the services required, and
the territorial legislature has no
power to furnish relief. One of the
first things which would come up
before a state legislature would be a
bill increasing these salaries, while
judging from the history of territorial
legislatures, a regular flood of meas
ures would be introduced for public
That a state goternment is pre

Our contemporary has commenced
advising President Roosevelt as to
what he should and what he should
not do. Of course the suggestions
and advice is not disinterested en

"Following the recent statement by
Dollar Mark Hanna. that he would
never agaiu be interviewed, comes
the newspaper report that Hanna has
expressed great and profound confi
dence in Roosevelt. This Hauuite
confidence is a recent growth. Roose
velt will do well not to cultivate that
growth too much, for as it increases,
the confidence of the people in Roose
velt may decrease. Unhorse Hanna.
Mr. President, and throw overboard
his satrap in Arizona."
Of course nothing would suit the
democratic party better than to see
an open rupture between Mark Hanna
and President Roosevelt for the ad
vantage that would result from it to
the democratic partv. Mark Hanna is
, the brainiest political organizer and
j manager that this country has ever
; had in auv partv. Twice has he mar
shaled the republican hosts of the
country, in solid phalanx, sending to
earth their political opponents with
majorities never before experienced
or even dreamed of in this country.
No wonder the democratic party
would like to see him unhorsed by
President Roosevelt so that he would
; not further take an active part in the

too good a patriot though to sulk in
his tent, and President Roosevelt is
too smart a man not to appreciate the
value of the advice and counsel of
Mr. Hauna, so that our democratic
brethren need not hope for the reali
zation of their desires.
The amusing feature of the above
quotation is in the sentence which
says: "Roosevelt will do well not to
cultivate that growth (the confidence
of Hanna) too much, for as it increases
the confidence of the people' in Roose
velt mav decrease."
The editor of the above paper evi-
dently has a very short memory not
to remember that Mark Hanna was
the late President McKinley 's closest
and most intimate friend and ad
viser and that no man who ever occu
pied the presidential chair, won the
confidence and esteem of the whole
Were a man to offer President Roose
velt advice in the interest of his own
success, popularity and in winning
the confidence of the people, and to
do so from the history of the past, it
would be directly opposite to that of
fered by the Courier. President
Roosevelt, however, needs no advice
from anyone, and particularly from
, democratic sources.
Again in the closing sentence of
this friendly (!) advice the Courier
discloses its real motives, in its desire
to have Governor Murphy removed
to whom it applies the epithet of
"Hanna's satrap in Arizona."

But that did not go, considering that
the very men who drew up the con
stitution initiated our protective sys
tem. Ihen for vears our ears were
dinned with denunciations of the
"robber" tariff, and the free-traders
J well nigh wept over the oppression of
70.000.000 of customers in the United
States, who were mulcted iu great
sums bv the "robber" tariff. But the
70.000,000 of consumers went on pro
ducing commodities for each other to
consume, they, worked steadily away
at the employment with high wages
which was always to l had under
protection, they enjoyed all the com
forts of life which were made possible .
by their high
money in the
wages, they laid up
bank and altogether
presented a most prosperous and con
tented aspect. They utterly refused
to believe that they were being
robbed and defrauded. So then came
another free-trade change, and now
we are being told that protection was
all very well in its place, that un-
doubtedly at the beginning, when the
country was young and our industries
infants, it did very well, but that now
it has outlived its usefulness. This
argument has now worn a little thin
and it is about time for another free
trade lightning change. What it will
be next time no one can foretell, but
it is safe to say that it will avail as
little as those which have gone be
fore. The American people have
tried both protection and free-trade.
and that being the case, free-trade
might just as well give up the strug
gle. A very little of it goes a very
long way, and we had enough to last
for a long time when Cleveland and
Wilson held the reins.
DESTINY OF CUBA.
The editor of Anglo-American pub-
! lished iu the City of Mexico is oue of
j the most out spoken newspaper men
vent to his feelings as follows:
"Au American paper asks whether
or not the Cubans cau govern them

propensities come to the front. Wheu

not one American out of one thousand
