discreet silence in regard to the trusts
and their methods of spoilatian. while
at the same time they declare it to be
their purpose to permit no change in
the tar i IT system by which the indus
trial monopolies live and move and
have their beiDg. la the meantime
the trusts, through tbeir tariff meth
ods of extortion, are daily diminish
ing the comforts and hardening the
lot of every workingman's family in
the land. The subject is very forci
bly and truthfully stated in Wana-
maker's North American. It says:
"There are indications that the man
agers of the republican campaign are
disposed to treat the question of
trusts as a non-political matter and an
issue of no importance to the people.
There is an nti-trut plank, brief.
general and somewhat indefinite, in
the platform, but in the speeches of
notification and acceptance at Canton
not a word was uttered about trusts;
the subject was carefully and signiti
cantly .avoided. This silence is made
more significant by Postmaster Gen
eral Mrmh e declaration that the trust
question is purely a business matter
and not a political issue. It is a busi
ness matter, but so is the currency
question and so is the tariff, and if
these are political issues, the trust
question is a political issue of the first
magnitude. The democracy has de
clared that its attitude towards the
trusts and the republican party will
nna it very necessary before next o
eniber to' meet that declaration with
equally unequivocal statements of
what it proposes to do to check the
vpgressians of massed capital and
bring the illegal combinations
known as trusts under reason
able control. A few politicians
may think they can divert attention
from this issue and juggle with the
platform with impunity. but they mis
take the temper of the people and the
depth of their interest in the subject.
The people are not asleep aai ihey
know very well that the abuse of cor
porate privileges is inimical to their
interests. They look to the govern
ment for relief from present condi
tions through legislation that shall
curb the rapacity of trusts and make
them instruments cf industrial devel
opment instead of trade restriction
and oppression and the party that
fails to promise that relief is likely to
bear something unpleasant when the
returns come in.
It will be wise for the campaign
managers to pull the trust question
from the sidetrack to the main line
and hook it to the train before the

Harper's Weekly presents a cartoon
showing President McKinley about to
engage in combat with the leader of a
Boxer party fresh from his work of
cirnage. Uncle Sam, bearing the
American flag, stands beside the pres
ident. The cartoon carries the legend,
"Is this imperialism?"
The question is easily answered
That is not imperialism. The punish
ment of a horde of yellow skins for
the murder of aa American minister
is not imperialism.
No democrat has ever hinted that
such a war would be carrying out a
policy of imperialism. On the con
trary, the democrats have insisted
that inflicting retribution on China
for a flagrant breach of one of the rec
ognized principles of international
comity would make the war not re
publican, but American. It would be
totally diffarent from the Philippine
war. against which the charge of im
perialism is brought with eminent

W. D. Allen, representing the pas
senger department of the C, M. & St.

the interests of the excursion the com
pany is to run from Davenport to

about the trip, which he says gives
promise of being oue of the most de

Clear Lake at 11 in the morning,
and returning will start at 6:30 that

cellent article on Clear Lake that is as
good as a story, and was written by
llev. W.K.Barclay for a Dateaport
paper. Alter referring to the tpworth
Ietgue assembly, now in session
there, the writer says: "We have no
hot nights, have bad only two hot

June 6, 1898, in Company B, of the

Spain was at its height, and was sent
at once with his regiment to the Phil
ippines. While Mr. Danielson under
his enlistment was entitled to honor

were ratified, he served from the fall
of '98 until Aug. 28 of the following
year, for which he is entitled to one
