The Louisville Dispatch quotes an edi

would please the Courier better than to
see them vote for Brown, and that is to
see them vote for Taylor; it is a Repub
A COSTLY POLICY.
"It comes high," this policy of expan
sion and conquest, is the judgment of
the Philadeldhia Ledgor, Republican,
but regarding with disfavor Mr. McKin-
ley's Philippine policy. Speaking tof the
the increase of the army to 100,000, on
the heels of The Hague conference it de
clcrjs it an inevittble eequence of Mr.
McKinley's plana. It goes on :
"This policy, as it has been daily illus
trated, does not mean alone the expan
sion of territory; it means, among a
goodly number of other thing?, new and
strange, an army of 100,000 effectives, a
navy of many and formidable ships; it
means the expansion of the list of dead
and wounded, the expansion of taxation.
of war taxes at a time when any war
authorized by Congress, without which
authorization no war is justified, cannot
be said to constitutionally exist, and of
the expansion of the cost of all the
necessaries oi uie. xiiup, u win uo per
ceived, the prire of the policy of expan
sion is hich. and with each new day it is
certain to be higher. To" create and
maintain vast armies afield, to construct
and keep afloat great fighting ships, re
ouires enormous revenues, all which
must necessarily be furnished by the
people. Not only are the Spanish war
taxes still on months after peace was de
clared, but they must be expanded in
definitely in order to keep pace with the
policy of expansion. Onerous and bur
densome as they are, the revenue sup
plied by them still falls far behind the
expenditures, as for instance the treas
ury report for July shows that the Gov
ernment's income from all sources was
far less than its outlay, the cost of the
Philippine war alone for the last month
having been upward of $19,000,000.
There is something exceedingly attract
ive in playing at expansion. The game
is undoubtedly a pretty one, but, all
things considered, is the game really
worth the candle?

The Postoffice Department has adopt
ed a new form of domestic money orders,
whicbwill be introduced gradually, or
as supplies of the old form become
exhausted, at the various postofficeo
throughout the country after the 4th of
The new fjrm is somewhat smaller
than the order now in use. Its dimen
sions are abbut those of the ordinary
bank draft. It has two adjuncts the
advice, or notificaton, to be sent by the
issuing to the paying postmaster, it
being a reproduction of the order through
the use of carbonized paper (the manifold
process), and a receipt for the amount, to
be furnished by the issuing postmaster
to the remitter.
On the back of the order a separate
space has been provided for the stamps
of banks through which it may be passed
In color the order is blue, having a
light blue ground, with fine, closely inter
laced tinted lines of geometrical lathe
work, of darker shade. In the center is
an escutcheon bearing the words "Postal
Money Order" in shaded capital letters
of the same two tints of blue. Tho tint
of the order and the lathe work will serve
to prevent imitations; but, as an addi
tional safeguard against counterfeiting, i
horizontal water mark, composed of the
initials U. S. M. O., in broad capital
letters, has been wrougbt-linto the paper
on which the new forms are printed.
Through the process mentioned (the
carbon, or manifold process) the order
and the advice are produced simulta
neously; by the same operation the
essential particulars of name of payee,
date, amount and place of payment, are
written in the order. The liability to
mistake is thus greatly lessened, and a
Bavins of time effected. Discrepancies
between order and advice, which, by
entailing additional correspondence and
causing delay in payment, have hereto
fore been a source of. annoyance to the
department and postmasters, as well as
to remitters and payees, are prevented,
and absolute uniformity between the
order and advice insured. The dispatch
of advices, which hitherto have not been
made out until after issue of the orders,
will also be accelerated.
In shape and size the new order is
deemed a decided improvement over any
other form of money order hitherto
adopted by the department. Its dimen
sions being about those of the ordinary
bank draft, it may be conveniently hand
led when mixed with diflerent kinds of
commercial paper. It is believed that
the change made in this respect will be
heartily approved by banks and business
Of .McKinleyism From March 4, 1897, Up
To the Present Date.
With the advent of Mr. McKinley to
power the Republican orgies began, with
the enactment of a tariff framed in 'the
interest of the monopolies and trusts,
designed for the payment of campaign
debts, and to lay the favored sections,
classes and interests under fresh obliga
tions to the present administration as
the dispenser of wealth. This was fol
lowed by the declaration of war against
Spain under the false pretense of assist
ing theTieople of Cuba to achieve their
independence, without any ulterior
thought of territorial greed or aggression
on our own part. When the enormous
outflow of patronage and favoritism
caused by the Spanish war was checked
by the premature termination of hostili
ties with Spain, Mr. McKiuley paid
$20,000,000 for the privilege of starting
another war in another part of the
globe against an unoffending people,
whose only crime was that they, too,
like the Cubans, desired to be free. And
tho Republican Saturnalia goes on.
The public money continues to bo
wasted like water, and the blood of
Americans and Filipinos is mingled in
one stream to bo coined into dollars by
the favored few who have influence or
"pull" and can bo expected to work for
Mr. McKinley's re-election.
