cave a theater party to the

This is in up-to-date paper
and we want its patrons, sub
scribers and readers to think
and feel that we want every
scrap of news that is fresh and
of interest to them. But on the
other hand, well knowing that
they do not want clippings that
are ten days old to read, nor
matter that has been published,
we say please do not request us
to do it. for that class of mat
ter will kill any paper, and be
lieving that our interest is your
interest, knowing that your in
terests are our interest we feel
safe in declining and believe
that yon will not ask us to
break the rule.
Through a mistake but never
theless an unintentional over
sight we neirlected to ask Clao-
per and Stoutsville to join in
the Rabbit Hunt, but now do so
cheerfully. Come, join in. and

j holding a grudge against us you
will bring just that "many more
rabbits in to make us feel boll)
good and bad at the same time.
Harper's Weekly presents
figures to show that the expan
sion policy we are embarking
upon will cost us over $200, 000,
OOii additional expense each
year, and that the returns there
from will make a sorry show
ing on the other side of the
ledger. If this be true it is dif
ficult to see where the profit to
our people comes in. We doubt
if our people are willing to pay
this price for an opportunity to
civilize a lot of half savages.
When the Senate convenes next
month and the question coimvs
up for discussion, the real facts
and truth in regard to these is
lands will probably be made
known. It is to be hoped that
this question may receive full
and fair discussion in order that
the people may have sufficient
data to form an Intelligent judg
ment. It ought not to be made
a question of party politics but
decided upon the facts and what
is best for all the poeple of this
country and no other. The
Anglo-Saxon disposition to ac
quire lands may lead us into
dangerous experiments and
some allowance should he made
for this inherent disposition.
If the parties are to follow
their tradition, the Democratic
party would be for expansion
and the Republican opposed:
but the out-look is that the
Democratic party will refuse to
go beyond the Western hemis
phere. Let our Senators rise
above party and be statesmen,
at least on this issue. Let them
cast their visions over the held
of the present and as far info
the future as their prophetic
eye can scan, and settle this
question right. This country
has never undertaked anything
in which it did not succeed and
if we take charge of all the ac
quired territory we will govern
it, but it may be an expensive
