CARRIED AWAY BY THE DREAM
In his speech at Concord, Massachu?
setts, Hon. George ErlSble Hoar admit?
ted the truth of the Democratic charge
that the men In control of Republican
policies ore Imperialists. Senator Hoar
"There are undoubtedly many per?
sons in the Republican party who have
been carried away by the dream of em?
pire. They mean. I have no doubt, lo
hold on to the Philippine Islands for?
ever. Rut they 4o not constitute the
strength of the party. I believe Agul
nnldo and Mablni entitled to self-gov?
ernment, l have little respcel for the
declaration of love of liberty of the
men who stand with one heel on the
forehead <>f Hooker Washington, of
Alabama, and the other on the fore?
head of Roi\ert Small of South Caro?
lina; and wave the American Hag over
Agulhaldo and Mablni. You are not
helping the cause of uhtl-linperialism
by going into partnership with Bryan
Now. who are these "many persons
III the Republican party who have be. n
carried sway by the dream of empire?"
Senator Hoar tells r.s who they nro;
they are those ''who mean to hold on t>>
Ihe Philippine Islands forever." Is not
Mr. McKinley one of these? He wants
to know who is going lo pull down the
flag. Is not Mr. Roosevelt, also, one
of them'.' Il<> says so every time he
makes a speech. It Is. in fact, a matter
of common knowledge that with the ex?
ception Of Senators Hoar and Welling?
ton every Republican of national prom?
inence, who Is in ofilec at this time, is
standing squarely with the President
In his policy of "criminal aggression."
It is the shallowest of demagogy,
therefore, for Senator Hoar lo nay thai
"they do hot constitute the strength of
the parly." They do not constitute, t<.
ho sure, the voting strength of the
party, but they do constitute the group
of men with whom rests the final wind
in shaping Republican policies. No?
body knows that better than Mr. Hoar,
for he went up against them at the
last session of Congress, and had to re?
ihe baffled and defeated. With the
whole .strength of the Democratic con?
tingent In Congress to back him up.
Senator Hoar could not .summon to his
support enough members of his own
party to turn a wheel against these
men who "mean to keep the Philip?
pines." He says "they do not consti?
tute the strength of the party." but
be had to go down on his marrow?
bones to them and recant his uttcrnm es
In the Senate, for all thai, or be retired
by the legislature of hlfl own Slate.
The Democrats do not contend that
the rank and lile of the Republican
party are in favor of Imperialism.
They do contend that the group of men
who control the party councils are out?
right Imperialists. Such is their rec?
ord, and they are standing by it. Tho
Republican platform no where roflccts
the sentiments of Senator Hoar. That
distinguished statesman has added lo
the Inconsistency of his position the
greater sin of insincerity. He de?
clares his belief that "Aguinaldo and
Mablni are entitled to self-govern?
ment." Ho knows thnt so long as the
present Administration is "perpetu?
ated" they will never get self-govern
. mcnt. -
Senator Hoar was conscious of the
weakness of his position, and lugged In
the balderdush about the "heel on the
forehead of Booker "Washington" to di?
vert attention. Senator Hoar ought to
be too wise a man to suppose that he
can cover his own short-comings by
charging sins to the account of others.
He was particularly unfortunate, too,
In holding up Hooker Washington as
the victim of anybody's heel. That able
educator and benefactor of his race
has every right that Senator Hoar has
and does not need the championship of
the latter to maintain them, if be lias
wrongs he can speak for himself, and
to quite as good purpose as Senator
WHAT ARE THE AMIGOS DOING
Next to the venerable and bcwhlsker
cd report that the insurrection has been
put down for good and all. tho most
persistent of Philippine fairy stories is
that which represents nine-tenths of
the people of the islands as looking
with warm favor on tho American re?
gime, while they view Agulnaldo and
his followers with mingled dread and
detestation. Like the sea serpent yarn,
the young musical prodigy and tho
story of buried treasure plowed up in
fabulous sums by the simple-minded
rustic, this vision of the amigo revel?
ling in American rule bobs up in peren?
nial youth, defiant alike of facts and the
most rudimentary common sense. The
canard may have been originally
avowedly such, or It mny have had Its
birth in that prolific imagination of
General Otis, wherein so many strange
and fantastic things took shape and be?
ing. Wherever in the gray muddle of
alleged American rule in the Philip?
pines It bad its origin, it lias gone
forth in this broad land of ours, and
drops In mellifluous sentences from the
tongue of every Republican spieler that
reward or the hope of reward has set
l;? saving national honor and keeping
the Mag at the top of the pole. Grant?
ing that nil this beauteous fable is fash?
ioned from the solid substance of unim?
peachable fact, where are all these
umtgos? How does it chance that
every time a Filipino Is scratched, a
live and kicking "rebel" Is found? How
dp? s it come to pass that these same
nmlgos willingly give of their sub?
stance, in the heart of Manila, under
tho nose of MacArthur and muzzles of
American guns, to the cause of the
dreaded and hated Agulnaldo? By
what devices has this handful of hos
illes been able to maintain Itself against
f.O.OOd American soldiers, and In the
midst of Hie nine-tenths of friendly na?
tives, ami after nearly two years of
war to cut up whole companies of
Americans? Why do not these nmigos
lake a hand in restoring peace und or?
der in their own country If they long
for peace and order as subjects of the
American republic? What manner of
man Is Agulnaldo, what bis followers,
that they should thus be able to with?
stand the American army and such an
overwhelming majority of their own
countrymen? What proof has been ad?
duced to show that a large part of the
Filipinos are friendly to the Americans?
Surely it Is strange that one-tenth
should be so extraordinarily pertina?
cious and active in their hostility, while
nine-tenths should be consumed with
an ardent friendship and yet with?
hold that common service of renegades
in evry war?the furnishing of infor?
mation of the enemy's movements. Vet.
day after day. the Americans go on be?
ing trapped and if, at any time or
place, they have been so much as warn?
ed by these swarming amlgos the fact
has not been set down In the dispatches
which have been SO carefully fashioned
to Include every fact favorable to con?
tinued aggression. The assertion, in
fuel, that any largo percentage of the
Filipinos wish to sen tho Americans
triumph seems not to have any better
foundation than Otis' dispatches or
Hannas dictum that there are no
THE PIPE DREAM OF LEVY.
Hon. Jefferson M. Levy is a diverting
soul. How, as a member of the Fifty
sixth Congress from the Thirteenth dis?
trict ? New York, he made Rome howl,
is now a part of the imperishable his?
tory of his country as embalmed in
the Congressional Record. Was it fact,
or did we dream It, that lion. Jeffer?
son M. Levy gave si dinner in Wash?
ington <'iiy. at which his Vice-Prcsl
dcnlial boom was to bo distended and
to which sundry notables, high In party
count its, were invited, bul found them?
selves loo busy to attend? Is it not
true, also, that the nipping frost of
party ingratitude left this fairest flower
of stub smanshlp to wither oh the stem
at the last nominating convention In
Mr. Levy's district. Such, we believe,
was (lie case; but. however that may
be, Hon. Jefferson M. Levy has shown
that he is not amenable to the soft
pedal, and that the squelch slides
harmless from bis panoplied person.
He has h, en spending the summer at
the home of Thomas Jefferson, which
lie owns, and while In this State learn?
ed thai Virginia would probably give
its electoral vote to the Republican
ticket this y. ar. A marvelous, a most
marvelous, change has come over tho
Old Dominion, he says. From all parts
of the State "prominent Democrats"
trooped to Hon. Jefferson M. Levy lo
assure him that they would vote for
McKinley, "There is much dissatis?
faction over the Constitutional Con?
vention." All of this, a Republican
contemporary opines, "will alarm many
Democrats." if "many Democrats"
were Interest od as lo the sanity of Hon.
Jefferson M. Levy, it would Indeed
alarm them. Bui they are not. There?
fore we do not'look lo sec their peace
of mind disturbed <>r their slumbers
"The revenues for Cuba are steadily
Increasing," says the Baltimore Ameri?
can. Certainly; that "highly educated
bustler," Mr. C. F. W. Ncely, Is in Jail.
CANARDS AND CONSEQUENCES.
Tho esteemed Baltimore American
drags to the fore quite tho largest spec?
imen of the class of canard which rep?
resents tho terror of tho business com?
munity at tho thought of Mr. Bryan's
election that has seen the light in this
campaign. Here it is in all of its gaud
"The financial institution of which
Mr. Davidson is the head has success?
fully negotiated a transaction Involving
Ing the investment of $11,000,000. All the
details have been satisfactorily dispos?
ed of, the money Is ready and the llrst
call bos boon authorized. There Is but
one contingency which may prevent the
consummation of the deal. In the pre?
liminary papers it has boon expressly
stipulated thnt In the event of the elec?
tion of William J .Bryan the agreement
shall be void and the deal will be called
off. If, however, McKinley Is elected
tho deal is to go through as quickly as
As the American refrains from giving
the name of the financial institution
that enjoys tho prestige of association
with Mr. Davidson, and carefully
avoids any hint of the nature of tho
transaction, we take the liberty of
doubting that Mr. Davidson or his in?
stitution are engaged In $11.000,000 deals
contingent on the election of the one or
the other candidate for the Presidency.
If, however, the story be well founded
then the Institution in question would
do well to provide Itself with a finan?
cier and get rid of at least one dema?
That tho yarn is fishy docs not, how?
ever, affect in tho least tho plain pur?
pose of its publication. It is In fact
nothing but a thinly disguised attempt
to bulldoze public opinion by represent?
ing that if Mr. Bryan is elected the
"financial institutions" of the country
will proceed to produce a panic to the
injury of the country's business. That
they would not do anything of tho sort
goof without saying, but Ibis species of
bluff has reached a point where the
American people may very well call it.
if they wish to preserve their politics
from the absolute domination of com?
mercialism and themselves from a coer?
cion of choice that will be destructive
alike of independence and self-respect.
It is quite the fashion to accuse Mr.
Bryan of attempting to array one class
of ottr people against another, and yet
Republican newspapers teem with ac?
counts like this from the American. If
they be true, they prove that the Re?
publican party has already arrayed one
class against another, and In any case
their publication does more than any
other one thing lo create in the minds
of the masses resentment against the
class of which Mr. Davidson Is pa?
raded as a nicmbtfr. That this should
he so is natural and is creditable to the
masses of our people. The man who
could be inlluenccd to vote for Mr. Mc?
Kinley?or fot; uny other candidate?by
tactics of this sort, would be unlit lor
THE HOODLUMS AND THE
Both Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Bryan
have suffered on tholr tours o* the
country from hoodlurr.fsm. It Is Just
as reprehensible In the one case as in
the other. The good citizen, regardless
of party, will visit with equal condem?
nation those who blow horns to inter?
rupt Mr. Bryan and steam whistle's to
interrupt Mr. Roosevelt. It is a mani?
festation of vulgar intolerance Impos?
sible to anybody save a rowdy. Such
has been Mr. Bryan's attitude toward
this species of annoyance throughout.
Ho has not sought to make political
capital out of it. lie has not Insulted
the Intelligence of the country by seek?
ing to bohL the Republican party re?
sponsible for every fool who follows bis
bent by Interrupting n public speech,
lie bus not nought to enlist popular
sympathy or admiration by having
glow ing accounts of his Intrepldfy In
the midst of Hying bricks telegraphed
to party organs. In short, he has borne
himself throughout a campaign that
has not lacked ordeals trying to the
temper with that good humor, toler?
ance and fairness that is characteristic
of the Amerlt an gentleman. Of Mr.
Roosevelt's bearing under similar cir?
cumstances it is not necessary to
speak. It is ruIHi iently well known to
the newspaper reading public. His
comments on the Victor Incident, his
sulking at Hi. Louts, where the sensible
and conservative German voters de?
clined to holier for the cowboy candi?
date, are sufficiently well known. His
performance at Kllzabcthtown, Ken?
tucky, however, was so remarkable
that It justifies n little examination.;
At that place he was made the victim j
of a steam whist:.- and rapidly driven
coal wagons. Lifting his voice to the
top notch he shouted;
"I call your attention to the attitude
of Mr, Bryan's friends on the subject
of law ami order, it Is natural that the
men who have tried to deprive Ken?
tucky of a free ballot should bo op?
posed to free speech, it Is not extra?
ordinary thai 1!).- men who have stolen
the governorship and who seek to steal
it again, should noi .late hear the truth
of history, but should seek to gag an
American citizen, even before he had
uttered one w?rd of his opinion In a

Teddy Roosevelt loses his temper and
his head In replying to Mr. Bryan's
question as to why ho does not, as
Governor of New York, use his author?
ity to destroy the Ice Trust Instead of
talking about Tammany's connection
with It. In his capacity of candidate for
VIce-Presidont. He says hyproclsy
couid not be carried further than Tam?
many leaders have carried It. That Is
"warm stuff," doubtless, but as answer
to Mr. Bryan's question Is leaves a
great deal lo be desired.
Capt. R. P. Leary, ex-Governor of
Guam, had hardly landed In New York
before he denounced Hoar and Atkin?
son as traitors. This way of being six
months behind the times Is a risky
business for a commentator on Ameri?
can politics. Senator Hoar is now one
of the most vocal of the pure patriots.
