WASHanoTow, MIAL 2, 1900.
Uneasiness reigns in the McKinley
camp for various reasons and espe.
cially be ansoe of a rumor that Ben.
Harrison, who haq been jumping all
over the republican wobbling on the
Porto Rico tariff question, is going to
b3 boomed as an anti McKinley and
anti.English republican candidate for
the Presidential nomination. The
story. as it comes to Washiqgton, is
that Harrison is sure of the indiana
vote in the convention to start with;
that he is reasonably sure of the
Minnesota vote and has more than a I
fighting chance to get the Michigan I
vote, if Mr. McKinley continues his
present pro English attitude towardsn
the war in South Atrica, and ha
supporters in many other states It
is too soon to ss) bow much there is
in this alleged Harrison boom. but he
isn't the sort of man to say or do
anythig without an object, and it is
difficult to see wqat other object he
can have to thumping the McKinley
policy, as be has been doing recently,
than to try to get the Presidential
nomination for himselt
When Mr. MasKinley signs the
gold standard bill which will make
the rich nuher and the poor poorer.
which was parsed in the Senate and

of the country during his campaign
for election to the Presidency.

talker, although always radical in his
ideas, but he couldn't do himself jns.

govern the Philppines as he pleases,

A bill making William McKinley

give one man autocratic power over
the lives and fortunes of millions of
poor devils who were bought and
sold without their consent. If Coo

of this country will sorely regret
Senator Kle, of 8. Dakota, who
attends the republican caucus and
votes with that party on all questions

the vote was taken on the report of the
conference committee on the gold

Soonte several weeks ago.
