CiiAiu.E St MSEKHaid: The words
that governments derive their just
power from the .onsen t of the gov

givingenygy. Not simply national
independence was here proclaimed,
but also the primal rights of all man

in making good his claim to the gov

in the country. He was ;5D years old
a few days before the November elec

the Kentucky constitution.
The Standard Oil trust is in a
healthy condition so far as dividend

the rate in lH'.t'.l. The l'JOO dividend

A novel development in the jour
nalism of the I'nited States is the
suppression of news in the in
terest of a political party. There
have leen a good many examples of
this, but the last week afforded a sali
ent illustration. Many of tbe repor
ters that reported the speech of Sena
tor Beveridge made hardly an allusion
to the fact that Senator Hoar, of Mas
sachusetts, replied to it, and yet the
Congressional Record, shows that Mr.
Hoar spoke about 40 minutes in reply,
and adduced a mass of evidence
against Mr. Beveridge's contention
that certainly is entitled to the most
candid consideration. Perhaps what
ever tbe senior senator from Massa
chusetts says is so utterly contempti
ble that it is amply sullicient for pur
poses of public information to report
tbe fact that he .-poke, without allud
ing to anything that he said, but
the time is not far back when
it was assumed that whatever he said
deserved the attention of his country
men. Another example of the same
thing is the scant reference in manv
papers to the correspondence Secre
tary (iagc submitted to congress las
week. You read them in vain to dis
cover that in it there was anv sue!
document as the Hepburn letter. It
is to ! expected that journals com
mitteii to a political partv win sup
port that party through thick and
thin. Jiut it has not heretofore been
supposed to be creditable to a great
journal to suppress material facts and
refuse to give tbe news for fear of Us

Constitutional History of the United

In the light of current events it

When the republican party meets
the speeches of Abraham Lincoln in
the next campaign, it will tind that the
gulf between Liucclnism and Hanna

the former cannot be followers of the
latter. Here is the impassable gulf
dug by Abraham Lincoln, at Lcwiston,
