sage, "reels with tho Congress of tho
But why the "future government?"
inquires the New York World. Why not
the present government? By what au
thority, continues tho World, does Mr.
McKinley say "when peace Bhall ho re
stored it will bo the duty of Congress to
construct a plan of government," &c?
By what warrant of law does Mr. Mc
Kinley say "as Jonir as the insurrection

You will search in vain in tho Consti
tution and in tho laws of tho Republic
for any such grant or implication of a
grant of these powers to the President,
who is defined by the Constitution itself
to bo merely an executive officer.
But this is not all. After thus forbid
i ding the Congress to exercise its lawful
duties at present, ho goes on to tell it
what it must not do in tho future.
While the only declaration of the Con
gress on tho subject, tho McEnery reso
lution, left open tho whole question of
the ultimate disposition of the islands)
Mr. McKinley now says:
The islands lio under tho shelter of our
flag. Thoy cannot be abandoned. This
proposition (to retain only a protectorate
over the islands) will not be found, I am
sure, worthy of your serious consid
eration. Why "I am sure ?" By what authority
does Mr. McKinley repeal the McEnery
resolution? By what warrantsjdoea he
forbid tho Congress to make any arrange
ments it may see fit for that "future gov
But this is not all. Ho goes on to tell
how ho has already begun to establish
civil government, to describo how in cer
tain places what he calla "the work of re
construction" has been begun and ia now
being carried forward.
Who authorized Mr, McKinley "to un
dertake the establishment of govern
ment? By what warrant does ho pro
ceed with this "work of reconstruction,"
which the Constitution and tho laws of
tho Republic give to the Congress alone?
But this ia not all. He adds :
I am considering tho advisability of
the return of the commission, or such
members thereof as can be secured, to
facilitate this work (of inaugurating gov
ernments) throughout the islands.
What commission? Why, his own
personal agents, appointed by him and
paid out of the State Department con
tingent fund, agents with whom the Con
gress has nothing whatever to do. And
wjiat is he purposing to decree through
these agents? Why
Building up from the bottom, first es-
tablishing municipal governmet ti, then
provincial governments, a central govern
ment at last to follow.
Mr. McKinley has repealed the Mc
Enery resolution. He has annexed tho
islands permanently. He is planning
and establishing governments. Ho an
nounces that he purposes to continue
that work until it is completed. All
these things he has done without war
rant or law, in defhnca of law. And be
tells the Congress that thoy are done

of tho rights and the duties given it by
In view of these facts, what is Mr. Mc
Kinley in this Republic, and what ia that
Congress of which t'te Constitution says
"All legislative powers shall be vested in

It is impossible for any thinking man,
concludes the World, not to realize how
well Mr. McKinley fits the description
given by Gibbon in chapter 1 of his "De
cline and Fall of tho Roman Empire ;"
The masters of the Roman world (tho
Emperors) humbly professed themselves
the accountable ministers of the Senate,

Old Stock About Exhausted and
New Crop Should Sell
Nov Factories Insure Lively Competition
With the Trust-Sales at Louis
ville for the Year.
Tho final sales of the leaf tobacco trade
for 1893 wore hold on "tho breaks" Fri
day. A total of 4,320 hogsheads were
oQered during the week, and tho aggre
gate for tho year reached 152.8G3. This,
while hardly up to tho sales of average
years, is greatly in excess of 1898.
In that year, due to the light crop grown
in 1897, tho oileringa were only 103,602,
while they were 169,173 in 1897 and 165,
749 in 1890. From the oflorings, how
ever, must bo deducted the rejections of
Bales, which this year were 28,989 hogs
heads, leaving actual sales at 123,874.
These- 123,874 hogsheads sold were
composed of 91,439 hogsheads of Burley
and 32,435 of dark. Onco more Louis
ville is the easy and undisputed leader in
both dark and burley markets. Sales of
dark tobacco exceedi those of Clarksville
and tho Virginia markets almost as much
as tho burley sales hero exceed those of
Receipts showed a sharp falling off as
compared with 1897, but a large increase
over 1898. The 1899 receipts since Janu
ary 1 to date have been 113,549, against
07,583 last year and 121.45S in 1897. Tho
proportion of now crop sales was much
larger than usual, showing how destitute
of old stock tho country has been. The
offerings of new woro 130,951 hogsheads,
against 78,709 in 189S and 143.400 in
All in all, conditions in tho trade havo
fcliown wonderful improvement. In the
first place thero has been a decided ad
vance in prices. The sales cf new bur
ley tobacco this season have been 51.50
to $2 on tho hundred higher than the
same grades sold a year ago. The qual
ity ia decidedly superior, so far as tho
bulk of the burley cron is concerned.
but prices are intrinsically much higher,
tobacco following sympathetically tho
rise in all other commodities.
Tho dark crop is decidedly inferior to
that grown in 1898, but prices are about
In another respect there has been
enormous improvement. Competition
has been increased by the starting up of
a number of independent plants whose
buyers havo juat come upon the market,
and who must take many thousand hogs
heads. At this time last year tho to
bacco trust had matters all ita own way.
All the leading factories had been united
in one gigantic combination, and the
number of opposing factories was not
only few, but it was also felt that it was
doubtful that they could keep tho field
against their tremendous lival. How
over, popular sympathy was the indend
ents from the start, and they flourished
to an extent never dreamed of before.
Tho rqsult was that their purchases havo
increased 50 to 100 per cent, in some in
stances during the year, and also sev
eral new plants have been started up, or
are soon to start. The largest is the new
Wotmoro factory, with capital of $1,250,
000, which haB been incorporated in St.
Louis by Mr. Wetmore, former President
of Liggett & Myers, and some of his asso
ciates in that company. The Manufac
turers' Company, of this city, $250,000
capital, is next in importance, and after
them come Rice & Vaughn and H. N.
Martin & Co., both substantial plants,
with experienced and wealthy manufac
turers at their heads. The supplies of
leai requireu Dy tneso lactones are so
large as to insure competition on every
pound that is offered for sale.
The burley crop is probably only 85
per cent, of an average, and the old
Btocka have been completely cleaned up.
Warehousemen, consequently, think the
situation exceedingly strong, and expect
a considerable advance in prices. So far,
the best tobacco seen in years has come
on tho breaks, and it has Bold for the
highest price, as high as $17.50 being
paid for new leaf. Ciop averages of $10
and $12 have been quite common, but
good to fino leaf is relatively much lower
than trash and lug3. Tho rage among
manufacturers to furnish a cheap "chew"
has greatly advanced the low grades. -In
one respect the dark lnnf mnrtpf la
in n more advantaceous eituntinn thnn
last year. The Spanish regie contractor
has returned to this market, and as Spain
has heretofore taken from $800,000 to $1 -000,000
yearly of tho lowest grades of
dark tobacco, tho importance of this cus
tomer can bo appreciated. Sales of dark
on this market are increasing, and more
will be pold in 1900 than ever. Tho crop
is not above 80 per cent, of an average.

This square ia composed of sixteen dif

that added vertically, horizontally, or
diagonally, the sum in each case is 1899:

It haa been claimed that a magic square
composed of an even number of numbers,
as sixteen, like the above, could not be

four different numbers may be taken
from the above equare, forming fifty-two
