WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11, 1809.
The frogs croaked under King Log,
because, if he did them no harm, ho
did thorn no good,?being utterly Idle
and Inefficient. Tin y also croaked, with
more reason and more vigor, when
King Stork pursued, ravaged and de?
voured them, to his own fattening and
the prosperity of all the Stork family.
Ilut they did their loudest and most
anguished croaking when they were
ptlted with stones by a delighted mob
of savages who surrounded them: "It
is fun for you," said they. In a dignified
protest to their oppressors, "but it is
death to us!"
Some men, perhaps, are descended
from apes and monkeys, to judge from
their characteristics, others from
hyena.1; nnd jackals, but the best breed,
according to the highest teaching of
evolution, have descended from some
early batrachlan, who croaked in prim?
eval marshes: and It is this breed, as
wo Und In all history, sacred and pro?
fane, that has furnished tho croakers,
complainants, protestants ami revolters
who have championed the human race
in all ages, in all things pertaining to
Its elevation nnd advancement, have
developed manhood nnd established
freedom?freedom from Kings, devour
ers and oppressors.
It Is, therefore, much to one's credit
that he is a croaker. It establishes his
superior lineage and his alertness In
discovering wrong and danger, and in
raising the alarm. He Is not silenced
by bribes nor threats; and least of all
?would he cry, "peace, peace," when
there Is no peace, or "prosperity and
plenty," when these are not. He hi
?the antipodes and natural enemy of the
vampire, who lulls Its victims to sleep,
while It sucks their blood and life
away; and also of the sentinel that
cries, "All is well!" though he hears
the war whoops and sees the glittering
tomahawks and scalping-knives of tho
Patrick Henry was a croaker; Jeffer?
son and all the signers of the Declara?
tion of American Independence were
croakers; the I;.irons who secured
Magna Charta were croakers; Crom?
well, Hampden, Pym, Sidney, were all
croakers; and so were all the glorious
throng who, since the devil tempted
Eve and Cain slew Abel, have raised
their voices against fraud, violence
and oppression: Moses and the pro?
phets, the Gracchi; Brutus, who slew
Julius Caesar; Luther, Melancthon,
Hubs, Calvin, the Huguenots; Wlnkcl
rle, who "made way for liberty and
died; the Mlrabeaus, father and son;
Gomez, Garcia, Agulnnldo; and n ?: to
forget the Polish heroes: Kosclusko,
Pulaskl, and a host of others. Th st- and
many more were croakers; and the
world is all the better for them, all the
happier. And now William J. Bryan
leads millions of American croakers;
God bless them! Join the procession,
every true than who would save his
country, his liberties, and restore pros?
perity. Let us croak to some purp ise,
"Croakers!" Intended as an abusive
epithet, let us make it a designation of
honor! Designed as a malediction, let
us transmute it Into n benediction and
a benison! Cast at us in the scorn of
insolence let us take ll up and make
it Illustrious by Imitating the grand
examples of those who have croaked
against evil government and for good
government ever since the world began!
T^ONG LIVE THE CROAKERS 1
THE PROSPERITY OF INIQUITY.
It Is Bald that a Democrat dislikes to
hear of prosperity. Ye?: of that pros- I
perlty obtained for a few by a cruel
and wicked policy out of the adversity
of many. Every good ami true man
ought to dislike to hear and to hate all
who exult in It.
"I was envious at the foolish." saith
King David, "when I saw the prosper?
ity of the wicked. ? ? ? They ore
not In trouble as other men; neither are
they plagued, like other men. Therefore
pride eompnsseth nbout as a chain;
violence covcreth thorn ns a garment.
Their eyes stand out with fatness: they
have more than heart could wish. They
are corrupt, and speak wickedly con?
cerning oppression: they B;>eak lofti?
ly. They set their mouth against the
heavens, and their tongue walketh
through the earth. ? ? ? Behold,
these are the ungodly, who prosper In
the world; they increase In riches.
? ? ? "When I thought to know this,
It -wns too painful to me; until I went
Into the sanctuary of Ood: then under?
stood I their end. Purely thou didst set
them In slippery places; thou eastedst
them down into destruction, llow ore
they brought into desolation, as in a
moment! they are utterly consumed
with terrors. As a dream ?when one
awaketh, so, O Lord, when thou awak
cst then shalt despise their image."
And 'saith Kins" Salomon: "He that
oppresseth the r?or to increase Iiis
riches, and lie that giveth to the rich,
shall surely come to want. ? ? ?
Hob not the poor, because he Is poor;
neither oppress the afflicted In the gate:
tor the Lord will plead their cause, ami
spoil the soul of them that spoiled
him. ? ? ? He that hasteth to be
rich hath an evil eye. and considcrcth
not that poverty shall come upon him.
? ? * V.'hen the wicked rise, men hide
themselves; but when they norish. the
righteous increase. ? ? ? The right?
eous conslderotli the cause of the poor,
but the wicked regardeth not to know
it. ? * * The getting of treasures by
a> lying tongue is a vanity tossed to
and fro nf them that seek death. The
robbery of the wicked shall destroy
them; because they refuse to do judg?
ment. ? * * Whoso stdppeth Iiis
ears at the cry of the poor, he nlso
shall cry himself, but shall not bcT
And Agur, the son of Jakeh, prophe
"There is a generation ?whose teeth
nre ns swords, and their jaw-teeth as
knives, to devotir the poor from off the
earth, and the needy from among men.
The horse-leech hath two daughter.',
crying, Give, give."
Search the Scriptures, new and old,
and ye goldtes will find much more
In them than poetry, logic and skill In
debate, if you will. As mere literature,
the rankest Infidels have been aanong
tin; highest eulogists of the Bible; but
one had better not read It nt nil, if In
no stronger light than that. If ho can?
not accept and understand it as the
word and law of the Ood who made
us, obeying it to the best of his a.bili
ty. it would be far better for him had
lie never heard of it,?ns seems to be
the case with those who bear sway in
these evil days.
REPUDIATE THE BROKEN
If what we hear from the Philippines
is true, Spain has already violated the
Treaty of Peace concluded at r.iris, by
destroying forts and other property
which Were ours under the plain terms
of the treaty, and having collusive
machinations with the Philippines, In?
citing them "to revolt and giving them
aid and comfort therein. How can the
Senate ratify a treaty already broken
by the other party to it? It must be
repudiated by that body, for these and
o'ther reasons, or the people of thla
country will surely renounce it, and
demand further assurances and secu?
rities from Spain of good faith than
she ha.') yet given us. As it is, we shall
Und her hand and her emissaries in Cu?
ba, Porto Rico, Guam and the Phil?
ippines, stirring up strife against us,
and making difficulty, trouble und cost
in every possible way.
Let the Senate refuse to ratify this
Paris Treaty?this Pandora's box?and
advise the President to make another
directly with Spain, through her diplo?
matic representatives in Washington,?
the Senate outlining the terms It ad?
vises and will consent to: excluding the
Philippines and Malays, saving the
$20,000,000 and the cosis of a war with
Agulnaldo, or the .Malays, and also our
honor and principles as a nation.
General Hrooke, from all accounts,
seems inclined to rival Weyicr, It will
not be surprising if both Cubans and
Philippines are erelong appealing to
Spain to save them from American ty?
"Remove not the ancient land?
marks, which thy fathers have set,"
says .-' demon, the wisest i>f men; "and
meddle not with 'them that are given
in change; for their calamity shall rise
suddenly; and who knowoth the ruin
i of them both? Those things also be?
long to the wise."
That a great people and a groat na?
tion should be utterly at the mercy of
elcutlon-frnuds, organized and operated
by Mannas and other miscreants, is In
t ilerable; and the people will be fully
justified in resorting to ANY MEANS
I to escape the frauds and get rid of the
miscreants. Can no law be devised to
1 protect the polls nml assure the verity
i of the returns? In default of law, can
, nobody suggest a feasible plan to deal
effectively with the rascals and their
Here Is a matter that has become of
paramount Importance, as everything
depends on a free ballot, a full vote,
and an honest count: for constitutions,
laws, rights, liberties and powers are of
no avail, unless tho Ilanna blight of
Federal elections can be stayed. It is
a matter, too, in which mere talking
and discussion are futile unless they
arouse action?action equal to the oc?
Tho ready writers, who are so Indus?
triously citing facts and figures to
prove how the wicked and the oppres
sers of men flourish like a green bay
tree, in tho midst of the adversity ot
the people-, do not appear at all aware
how signally this prosperity and their
obsequious devotion to it verity all the
sacred books of our religion.
Don't we all know that our Revolu
tlonary fathers, neither before nor af?
ter thc>ir war for liberty and Independ?
ence, would havo stood for a single
day from England, France, or any
other nation the treatment we have ac?
corded the Phllippinos and Cubans??
treatment as contemptuous a"s It is ty?
If the goldites would only learn to
give unto Caesar (government) the
things that are Caesar's ('their fair
proportion of taxes), there might be
some hope of their rendering unto God
?the things that are God's; but, as we
see, they obtain exemption from taxa?
tion as far as possible, and then evade
i't by every device.
Suppose there is a Patrick Henry In
Cuba? Or in the Philippines? Shall
we hang him, or shoot him, for appeal?
ing to our own Revolutionary princi?
ples and examples? Shall we forbid
free speech, and suppress a free press,
to stiilo the cry of "Give me liberty, or
givo nie death" ?
"Oh, what a tangled web we weave,
When first we practice to deceive!"
Regard the people; remember tho
poor: theso aro the chief injunctions
of true religion, of oil honest business,
and of all wise statesmanship, espe?
cially In a government of the people,
by the people, for the people; and woe
unto all who forget them, ignore them,
or scorn them.
Wb hear chleily ol Quay ami nanna;
but "there are others," and we sup?
pose that Delaware has exhausted her
supply of Bayards and Saulsburys, as
she sends little Wellingtons nnd big
I Aldingtons to tho Senate, and will cap
the anti-climax, in all probability, by
rending Gas Addlcks up- To bo called
"a Senator" will be a fighting Insult
It is a great mistake to suppose that
nil men do not see the truth and com?
prehend reason because they differ with
you. They probably know all about the
matter, and comprehend It better than
you; at least, some do: nnd Its falsehood
and Vlleness attaches them all the
more to it, particularly If they see their
"make" In it. So, an exposure of the
salacious character of a publication Is
seized by nuthor and publisher as a re?
commendation to attract lovers of liter?
ary filth nnd crime.
When Mr. Schurz, or any other man,
is complimented for forcible logic, it
seems somewhat mean to Illustrate it
by quoting his quotations of what other
men have said. If thc^e quotations
contain logic, then It is theirs, not Iiis
who quotes them; and If they ore not
argumentative, they are mere opinion,
which Is n? variable as the wind, nnd
about ns valuable in ratiocination or
argument. For Instance, the opinion of
the N. T. Trlbunte, some years ago,
was strongly adverse to the acquisition
of more territory and inferior races;
now it Is precisely the other way.
The Vnnderbllts want a United States
Senator in Congress to represent thr-m,
and promote their Interests: It Is said
that they could easily buy ready-made
Senators, in Job-lots: they, however, are
above ready-made articles, and prefer
to make their own "things," or have
them made to order. Accordingly, they
have directed the Legislature of New
York to fill a seat among the Quays
and Hannas with their own buffoon
and sharper, Chauncey Dcpew, whose
after-dinner.jokes nnd deals have made
him at once tho clown and rounder of
his sphere and circle.
Depew was hard to take seriously,
at first, and lie was regarded only as
a j''ke; but the Vandcrbilts are no
jokers, if their own Depew Is; and so
it Is that the upper lions,, of our Con?
gress Is to have a Vanderbilt Senator,
representing none of the people, but
many, many millions of dollars. De?
pew, heretofore, like rorlck, was "wont
to set the table on a roar;" but now it
will bo ids "Th' applause of list'ning
Senates to command" because millions
of money speak through him!
Among the rights reserved to the
people by all constitutions is not only
self-defence of life, liberty nnd prop?
erty ngninst criminal aggression, but
such necessary offensive measures to
preserve nil natural, legal and con?
stitutional rights and privileges that
aro not adequately protected by civil
provision nnd authority. This is an
inherent and necessary right, without
which no just government itself can
exist. But these extreme and extra?
ordinary rights and powers do not be?
long to tlio individual, or tho minority,
only to the whole body of the people,
or the majority that speaks nnd acts
for 'it. When public opinion becomes
, the public will, and proceeds to acts,
these are In conformity to the supreme
law, or the fundamental law upon
which even constitutions rest.
Think of Hanna. or his man McKin?
ley, ruling 10.000.000. or 12.000.000 of
human beings. 8.000 miles away, by
force! But that Is nothing to the fact
that Hanna is ruling 76,000,000 of Ameri?
cans by fraud! Think of It! If Hnnna
has begun by destroying the Cuban and !
the Philippine Republics, Is he to be |
trusted with the American Republic?
The decrees of McKinley and Alger to |
the Cubans nnd Philliplnos are enough
to make Washington, Jefferson, Patrick
Henry and .all the rest of the fathers
of American liberty and Independence
turn in their graves, if not to rise from
the dead to protest against them. Do
the people of the United States (sons
of these fathers) realize that these Im?
perial decretals are Issued In their name
and under cover of their Power and
authority? Ho they not see how this
imperial rule may be brought home to
themselves, in retribution, or by natural
evolution? We do not discuss the mon?
strous details of these despotic edicts,
for to do that were to seem to admit
that we had some right to issue some '
commands to our military overseers nS f
to how these people should be arbi?
trarily governed without their consent.
The monstrosity is in this assumption
of rule, without the slightest deference
to any of the people, or their own local
government, or leaders. It is sheer
brute force against all right and free?
dom. If it is answered by brue force,

Pncle Sam's trouble with Agulnaldo
are but a sample <>f what we may ex?
pect as a continuous performance in
the event of American retention of the
Philippines. The Filipino leader be?
lieves his people are on the "glorious
toad to Independence," and has so ex?
horted them. His protests against ;i
American military governor is vehi
ment and is having the effect of ar eas?
ing his followers. If it were not this
it would be something else, and so it
would ever be. Even now the peopl
of this country tire straining the!
nerves for information about the doings
at Hollo. An engagement with tin
dusky lighters Is expected at any time
and all is tension in the business world,
though as yet there have been no se?
rious results in this connection. But
the unsettled condition and the possi?
bility of another war Is sure to have
an injurious < ffect, and so long as we
Insist upon holding the Philippines
acamst the wish of Ote natives we may
expect just such a state of affairs as
ANGRY AT MR. CROICER.
(The Chicago Record.)
Washington, l>. C., .Ian. 8.?The "hay?
seed" element of the Democratic party
in Congress and the "aunties." as the
opponents of the President's expansion
policy arc called, are quite Indignant
at the pronunclamento from Mr. Cro
ker yesterday morning, in which ho
took strong grounds In favor of ex?
pansion, the Increase of the army and
navy against free silvi r. They nev<
did like Tammany, and. as Senator
Jones says, the Democratic party has
not yet got down so low that it has to
take its instructions from Mr. Croker.
They Interpret his outbreak as Intend?
ed to counteract the growing promi?
nence and popularity of Mr. Bryan.
Senator Jones speaks with emphasis
when he says: ".Mr. Croker's vision on
such questions does not extend beyond
the limits of Now York city. Those
gentlemen who are pronouncing eulo?
gies on the death of free silver may be
disappointed when the next National
Democratic convention meets. I hap
pen to he in a position to know that
free silver as a Democratic Issue is nc'
dead, neither is it sleeping, and I am
confident there will be a reafllrmation
nf so much of the Chicago platform as
declares for the free and unllmll
coinage of silver. There may be Blight
modification as to the ratio, but the
Democratic party is overwhelmingly
loyal to the free-silver cause. The
question of expansion will hardly cut
any figure In the next. National cam?
paign, for, in my opinion, a fixed line
of policy will have boon established in
that directi.-.n before tho next Presi?
dential cnmnalgn opens."
