rot be honest among ourselves? Every
one really knows—no matter what he
says—he knows that that was a war
of conquest. We based it upon the
ground of humanity, and possibly it has
done Cuba some good, but if we continue
our present policy the condition <.f that
island is liable to be worse than it was
under Spanish rule. It is enly a question
of time when Cuba will be one of the
states of this Union, and why not admit
that we sought the possession of that
island for that purpose and treat the
case accordingly. Why not be frank and
honest among ourselves. It is an old
saying that it is never wise for a man
to attempt to deceive himself. President
McKinley was standing as a solid bul
wark against a congress that was clam
oring for war, and when the terrible
tragedy of the Maine occurred iie was
forced to surrender and the war fol
lowed. Still partisanship is so great that
we have within a few days seen the
hero who won the great battle of San
tiago publicly, violently and disgrace
fully reprimanded by the president of the
United States because his friends in the
state from which he hails are Democrats.
That is the truth, whether it pleases you,
gentlemen, or not. and on rare occasions
I dare to tell the truth.
Take a further illustration: England
was friendly to us during the Spanish-
American war because it was to her in
terests to be friendly. France was hos
tile, her old traditional foe, and It was
England's business interest to be friend
ly, and she wanted to maintain friendly
relations. She had money invested here,
and because we want to be a great "world
power" we forget all the teachings of
George Washington and sit supinely by
and see a brave republic crushed.
Why Not Aid the Boers?
While that struggling and heroic repub
lic in South Africa is making the noblest
and grandest fight for liberty ever made
by any people on the face of this earth, a
counterpart of our own struggle for lib
erty, we do not dare even to diplomatical
ly suggest any method of aiiMlration or
relief. We are too cowardly, as a na
tion, to rise up and interfere in any way.
Secretary of State Hay, whose greatest
fame lies in Ms authorship of the "Little
Breeches" poem, does not dare to write
to England a letter suggesting that there
should be some offer of arbitration to set
tle the controversy and help that strug
gling republic, and so the struggle must
go on with the ultimate result of a little
handful of thirty thousand men being
crashed out by an overwhelming force of
over 200,000, and we will shout;, "it was a
glorious victory." We forget the friend
ship of a foreign nation, France, in our
struggle for liberty, and the grand aid
rendered us by Lafayette, without which
we would not tonight be celebrating the
birthday of George Washington.
Xee.il of Independence.
There is not an intelligent man living in
the United States who does not in his
heart of 'hearts agree with the sentiments
I have uttered, and know I speak the
truth, but most of the members of the
dominant party will lie at>out their real
sentiment owing to their political slavery,
and say they don't want interference in
South Africa, and hence we let that
struggling people, who are entitled to the
support of this country, fight on unaided
until the inevitable will come.
Bear in mind, gentlemen, it is never
wrong to do right. But party slavery
says, no, we must be a "world power."

cally disfranchises me. I will not go to a

Senator Marion Butler, of North Caro
lina, and William F. Harrity were greet
ed warmly When they appeared in the
club house. Hoke Smith, of Georgia, sent
a telegram giving illness as the cause of
his failure to attend.
Justice Truax began the speechmaking
and was followed by David B. Hill,
who was loudly applauded;.
Keeps to Old Landmarks.
Mr. Hill, among other things, said:
"I speak tonighit in favor of the main
tenance of the old landmark Democratic
party. In that path there lies safety,
"We trace our political lineage baok to
Jefferson who was the author of that im
mortal protest against British imperial
ism, known as the Declaration of Inde
pendence. Opposition to the precepts
and practices of imperialism was thus one
of the cardinal principles of our party
faith at the very inception of the govern
"We should adhere to the policy In
volved in Jeffersonian expansion, the rea
sonable and natural acquirement of terri
tory adjacent to our own. Whenever the
American flag floats it should be as an
emblem of free government and the Aegis
of constitutional liberty. Neither should
tariff wars nor custom duties obstruct
the path of Anierican trade from one
portion of this government to another
"The spectacle is at present presented
of Cuba relieved from Spanish oppression
only to be enslaved by the United States
in commercial bondage. Justice demands
that these impositions shall cease. Noth
ing but self interests stands in the way
of tariff reform for Cuba.
"The Democratic party should again
press to the front the issue of revenue re
form. The Republican principle or prac
tice of protection is based on the right
to use the powers of government for in
dividual purposes. Our Republican friends
make revenue the incident and protection
the main purpose of all tariff taxation.
"The policy of reciprocity is and always
has been a Democratic policy.
Home Rule for the State.
"We believe in a strict construction of
the federal constitution as essential for
the pufolic welfare.
"We believe in home rule for states.
"We favor an amendment to the con
stitution providing for the election of
United States senators by the people.
"Opposition to dangerous corporate
combinations of capital should continue
to be the Democratic position.
"The Monroe doctrine, first enunciated
by a Democratic president should remain
a settled policy of this republic.
"We believe in hard money—the money
of the constitution, and are utterably op
posed to irredeemable paper currency.
"If any further enunciation of Demo
cratic policy upon the financial question
is regarded as necessary in view of the
existing monetary conditions then it is
suggested that a simple declaration in
favor of the general principle of bimetal
ism furnishes a common ground upon
whiah all can stand.
"New York will be the great battle
ground o-f the campaign of 1904. Mr.
Roosevelt will be nominated for president.
It is true that with unseemly haste and
before the burial of the late president,
he publicly announced that he would not
be a candidate^ but soon thereafter he re
tracted the statement.
"Permit me to say in conclusion that
the views I have expressed- are my own,
but 1 believe that they are in accord
with the sentiment of the Democracy of
the Middle states.
Si aml by Ancient Principles.
Mayor Collins, of Boston, was the next
speaker. He said in .part:
"My subject does not call for elabora
tion, as the 'Democracy of New England
is always modest and shrinks into small
proportions when compared with the
great Democracy of the Union. My mes
sage from that part of New England that
I know best, and always love, is, how
ever, a message of cheer and hope and
"We fought the good fight in the days
that were dark, when we could not see
our 'political hand before us; we clung
to the principles of Democracy when It
meant not only exclusion from political
office, bub social and professionaT ostra
cism, and yet with light hearts we held
our conventions and went to the polls
year after year, when the day of victory
seemed as far off at least as the day
after "the day of judgment.
"You have frequently met us In national
conventions, and no doubt often won

or place, but always ardent, buoyant and
even aggressive. We fought our battles
mainly without outside" help, and always
without outside money. We paid our
own way, and In all the great contests

money, where the pressure was severest.

day stating- that Fred Brown, 'of this city,

Brown has no relatives here, but has

Defendant Company Claims That

A very novel suit has been brought by
the Northwestern Telephone Exchange
company against its rival, the Twin City
Telephone company, to determine which
has the right to use the atmosphere.
It seems that the line* of the Twin
City Telephone company are lower than
those of the Northwestern, and at cross
ings their lines run under those of the
Northwestero, and there are in the neigh
borhood of forty; of these crossings in
The point is that as business increases
with the telephone company it is neces
sary to string additional wires. The poles
are usually of sufficient height to alow
the stringing of many additional wires,
but under existing conditions the North
western Is unable to do this because they
would come in contact with the wires
of the rival company.
The claim of the Northwestern is that
the company stringing its wires first ha*
the right of way, so to speak, and
should be entitled to all the atmosphere
at that point. They also claim that the
company arriving on the scene last should
be compelled to lay their wires in con
duita or compelled to run them above
the lines of the other, as all that would
be necessary to do this would be to
place poles that are higher, and In this
manner all the trouble would be obviated.
Mr. Webster, of the Twin City com
pany, was seen in regard to this, and
he said: "While the point has never been
tested in this state, we are satisfied that
we are wholly within our rights whether
our lines are under or over, and we are
sure that the courts will sustain us. There
have been numerous decisions In other
states, and there is a recent one which
would permit us to string our wires ri^ht

company if we desired.

Persons Selling Lewd Pictures May
Rev. G. L. Morrill, of the Chicago Ave

on the street- For the past month or
so street fakirs have been reaping a har

lewd pictures that were concealed in

DROWNED IN CISTERX.
Five-Year-Oid Daughter of Charles
Hanson Meets Death.
The five-year-old daughter of Charles
Hanson, residing at 2213 Twenty-first
avenue south, met death yesterday morn
ing at her home by drowning in a cis
tern. Mrs. Hanson, the mother, was
washing clothes in the kitchen, and as
the cistern pump was out of order, she
removed the trap door which covers the
cistern in order that she might get water
out with a pail.
She left the door open and forgot all
about it until she heard the child! exclaim,
"Oh, mamma," and the next instant thero
was a splash. Mrs. Hanson tried to get
the little girl out with a rope, but was
unable to do so. Her screams brought
in several neighbors and also the driver
of a passing delivery wagon. The lat
ter jumped into the cistern and handed
the lifeless form of the little girl up to
the persons above.
A physician was celled, but it was too
late. The child was dead. There was
only about two feet of water in the cis
tern at the time, and if the little girl
could have stood -on her feet it would
come only up to her shoulders.
The father of the little girl is Charles
Hanson and he is employed, in. the
Christian mill. Mr. and Mrs. Hanson
have three other children, all srown up.
The parents are prostrated with grief
FACULTY SAYS NO.
Sophomores Who Failed to Pass
Cannot Be Reinstated.
At the meeting of the general faculty
of the university in President ISarth
iop's office yesterday morning a num
ber of unfortunate sophomores recently
requested to sever their connection witn
the institution because of failure in class
work during the past sen-ester appeared
in support of petitions asking for rein
statement on various grounds.
The faculty after some deliberation
voted that the petitions should not be
granted on account of a general poverty
of good excuses. This action was a sur
prise to the victims, as it has been gen
erally conceded at the university that
the faculty does not know how to sup
press a petition, particularly when bacKeVi
by the petitioners' personal attendance
at the meeting.
A feature of the petitions was the pre
dominance of the excuse of "newspaper
work." The daily press of the institution
is said to have been well represented
LOOKING FOR STORAGE.
Canadian Wheat Jfnst Find a Place
to Be Stored.
It is more than likely that in the near
future there will 'be a large quantity of
Canadian wheat stored in Minneapolis
elevators in bond. At the present time
every elevator and storage house ii> Can
ada is filled to its utmost capacity, ana
something must be done to relieve the
congestion. Arrangements have a'.reay
been made to send a lot of wheat to Du
luth, but there is not enouigh room at
that point to take care of all that must
find an outlet.
It will be necessary to get some good
rates via the roads entering and running
out of Minneapolis in order that the wheat
can come in here to be stored. The ques
tion of room Is not bothering any of the
elevator men, as they claim that there is
room enough in the Minneapolis elevators
to store 10,000,000 or 15,000,000 bushels. Min
neapolis dealers are anxious to have this
wheat come in here, as they claim It will
increase their prestige as a wheat cen

Three hundred "Territorial Pioneers,"
men and women who settled in Minnesota
before it was admitted to the Union in
May, 1858, gathered at the banquet tward
in the Nicollet hotel main dining room
last night to do <honor to the memory
of George Washington.
This was the first banquet given, by
the pioneers to celebrate the anniversary
of the birthday of the father of his
country, but it will not be the last, for
it estEfblished a precedent.
The dining room presented a picturesque
appearance when the banquet was fairly
"on." Gray heads end white heads and
heads that cannot be described by the
color of the owners' hair were in a large
majority at the table. But because these
men and women, played so important a
part in settling, developing and mak

Of a Naw Catarrh Cura.
Physicians are slow to take up new and
untried remedies, until their value has
been established by actual experiment,
and they are naturally skeptical of the
many new preparations constantly ap
pearing and for which extravagant claims
The njcst liberal and enlightened phy
sicians are always ready, however, to
make a fair trial of any new specific and
get at its true medical value.
A new preparation for the cure of ca
tarrh has attracted much attention m
the past faw months and has met with
great favor from the medical profession
not only because it is remarkably success
ful in the cure of catarrh, but also be
cause It is not a secret parent medicine;
anyone using it knows just what he la
taking Into his system.
It is composed of blood root, which acts
on the blood and mucous membrane": ny
drastin, for same purpose, to clear the
mucus from head and throat, and red
gum of eucalyptus tree to destroy ca
tarrhal germs in the blood.
All of these antiseptic remedies are
combined In the form of a pleasant-taat
in«< tablet or lozenge, and are 3old by
druggists under name of Stuart's Ca
tarrh Tablets, and many recent tests in
chronic catarrh cases have established'
its merit beyond question.
Dr. Sebring states that he has discard
ed inhalers, sprays and washes and de
pends entirely upon Sttta"rt's Catarrh
Tablets In treating nasal catarrh. He
says: "I have had patients who had lost
the sense of smell entirely, and whose
hearing: was also impaired from nasal ca
tarrh recover completely after a few
weeks' use of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets.
I have been equally successful with the
remedy In catarrh of the throat and ca
tarrh of stomach. I can only explain It
on the principle that catarrh Is a consti
tutional disease, and that the antiseptic
properties in these tablets drives the ca
tarrhal poison completely out of the sys
Dr. Odell says, I have cured many cases
of catarrh of stomach in past four
months by the use of Stuart's Catarrh
Tablets alone, without the use of any
other remedy and without dieting. Th«
Tablets are especially useful In nasal ca,
tarrh and catarrh of the throat, clearing
the membranes and overcoming the con
