We arc not in the habit of boasting

footing mid a safer basis in every
way than ever before. Our friends

beginning with the mayor ot our
city, the members otour legislature,
the judges of our sta'c courts, the
governor of tir Mute, the members
of congress, the judges of our su
preme court and the president of the
United States as a brotheihood of
thieves. Who knows but the in
fernal se rpent of an annrchist that
shot down Pi evident McKinlty had
been educated and nerved to his
hellish work by some such damna
ble school master as this. Who
knows but that the poor cowardly
ingrate learned to believe from such
teachers that liberty is but license,
and that any officer or authority
that stands in the whv of that li
cense should be removed by the
murderers bullet or the assassins
Nf Note IVnm tltn 'Hiitftl.
Since capital and labor can.iot
possibly get along without each
other, it is too bad they cannot get
along with each other.
An unknown man ought never be
allowed to appronch the governor
of .my state, much less the Presi
dent of the United States.
Anarchists should be treated as j
serpents in human shape, as they
are, and have their heads mashed
whenever they show them.
The problem of human liberty is
yet to be worked out. Our nation
has made rapid progress in the
work and it may be we are going
too fast. The security of our liber
tics depends upon the intelligence
and the morrlity of our people. The
price we have to pay for them is
eternal vigilence. While we are
making strenuous efforts to make
them secure, are we not paying to
little attention to the mass of be
sotted ignorance and viper like
moralitv that is beinf- dumped
upon our land from year to year by
the ship load from the slums and
ces:pto!s of southern Europe. In
the earlier days of the republic
when our immigration came from
the Hritish islands and the old
fatherland beyond the sea, there
was not so much reason for vigi
lence. These were of a kindred
blood and from a liberty loving and
law abiding citizenship. But now
a large portion of our immigration
comes from among the degenerate
i sons ci a nooie race more sunken in
I morals than their father's slaves
Twa interesting visitot a have ap
peared in Washington within the
past few da) a. They were Gov.
(ien. Wood, of Cuba, and Gen.
Arthur MacAtthur, formerly coin
mandt r-in-thief of the American
military forces in the Philippines
The combined testimony of these
generals indicates that the Ameri
can people through their National
administration, are solving t ho
problems growing out of the con
flict with Spain. Wherever the
sun of civilization shines, America
is famed for surmounting difficul
ties, and the world is not to be dis
appointed in its belief that the
colonial question, with its several
phases, will not be abandoned in
despair liy the United States.
Gen. Wood announced that sev
eral months would elapse before
the Cubans were given full rein, It
is the intention of the Americau
authorities in the island to wait
until tint natives have chosen a
president and other important of-
I ficiais befote withdrawing That
announcement was received at the
capital with satisfaction, The
folly of abandoning the Cubans to
their own devices before they have
passed through, the critical period
of selecting their first executive is
obvious. Whim partisans of op
posite creeds may endeayor to
make political capital out of con
tinued American occupation, there!
ciive an invitation to a Ja . ksonian
picnic nt Omaha, promises to elim
inate both of them from the possi
bility lift, unless it love-feast takes
the place of the battle ax. In no
other quarter ha a man of formi
dable size loomed up, thouc.li not
a few names of favuiitu aotia have
been mentioned by ambitious ad
vocates in some ot the states. Of
course, there is a long tunc ahead
for the Democrats to agree upo.i a
man. No one fears that a search
warrant will be found necessary,
but the existing lack of a leader is
a favoiite topic.
tt seems Strang? that a speech
delivered at a state fair should
thunder through Europe and briog

serves to illustrate bow clocly
American affairs are being follow
ed by foreign nations. During an
address delivered in Minnesota,
Vict -Pres. Roosevelt described
the part the United States should
play among the powers. Cable
grams received bete show that Mr.
Roosovclt's remarks were wired to
the German newspapers and that
they revived the temporarily dor
mant jealously cf America. The
Kaiser's press asserts, not without
a display of temper, that our no

territory in the western hemisphere
