Ai'iiT 19 making a delightful rep
utation for itself.
The affair of Saturday ni-jbt was
indeed a bluff flag raising.
The anti-imperialistic convention at
Indianapolis proves that all republi
cans are not fooled by MeKinley's
Without attempting to cast rejec
tion on tLe memory of a dead uian, it
may be Maid that the death of C. 1.
Huntington was a blow to the repub
lican party. He died before making
his usual heavy contribution to the
rep ubhcan campaign limit.
Dem'itk the dements of lawlessness
that Taylor, Towers ami other? of the
republican clique in Kentucky intro
dueed and encouraged in the Blue
Grass state, justice has not yet los
its loot-hold there. J he jurv in
the rowers complicity murder trial
Saturday did not take long to agree
upon its verdict.
Atin; (iov. Walter Warder whc
bv reason ot the absence from the
tate of both Tanner and Northcott, is
rving in the capacity of executive
is having no end of trouble with thi
lady managers of the Feoria Countv
Industrial Schools for Girls, who de
cline to honor his orders for tne re
lease of certain of the institution's
wards. "Acting governors don't
count with us," declared one of the
trustees discussing the matter. The
law governing the institution is very
defective, so much so that the boaid
of supervisors if Peoria county
under whose direct supervision
it comes appoaled to the act
ing epvernor to interfere in
the enforcement of regulations that
the board felt incompetent to handle
Now the ladv managers sav that the
acting executive has overstepped his
authority, and Warder does not seem
to be competent to judge whether he
has or not. When Gov. Alsi hulcr
gets in control in Illinois he will fix it
so that it will uot so happen, as it
has so frequently during the Janner
Nort hrott-elegant-ease-regime, that
he and the lieutenant governor will
not take their vacations at the same
time. These are hot days at Spring
field, but the people expect some
hardship to be endured bv their high
llicials. There is no occasion for the
absence of both Tanner and Northcott
from the state at this time. Other
people have to stand the heat, why
should not at least one of those
responsible for the government of the
a:Tairs oi the commonwealth. J
There is great rejoicing in the re
publican ranks because ex-Senator
Pfeffer proposes to vote for Mckinley
Now I'fetTer never voted the demo
cratic ticket and never h id a drop of
democratic blood in his veins. A re
publican at heart, he left that party
and joined the populists, first, for the
purpose of obtaining olliee, and sec
ond, for the reason that he was too
small a man to make a showing in a
p:rrty of respectable size. So soon as
the populist pirty got strong enough
to become a factor in politics he was
out of his depth, and tumbling into
the lirt hole he came to. naturally
found himself la the republican prty.
The republicans are welcoma to him
and his whiskers.
aiittee cannot deny it that Mckinley
ha9 practically surrendered to Eng
land territory that belonged to Ru9iia
from 1S25 to 13G7, and to the United
States from 1S67 until the English
concocted their absurd claim.
A modus yivendi that places thous
ands of American citizens and their
property under the British Hag with
out their consent is not a stroke of
diplomacy that will appeal overmuch
to the patriotism of the American
Do not imagine for a moment that
England will ever gi?e up the terri
tory thus obtained through our dip
lomatic idiocy. Sir Louis Henry
Davie, the Canadian minister, out
lines England's attitude ia the fol
lowing words: "Canada has not the
slightest intention of allowing her
original intention to relapse into
obscurity." Having obtained a taste
of the Alaska fowl, they now want
the whole bird.
The republican national committee
has much ability as a ground and
lofty explainer, without the use of a
net. but they will have to use some
thing more specific: thaa Senator
Scott's denial before the people will
It.is to ba hopei that after next
November we will have a president
in the White House who will cot
allow the country to shrink in such a
diplomatic wash. Between imperial
expansion and assinine contradiction
we are beset. A r liable Washington
I have the anthority of the state
department for saying that the pro
tests of American miners concerning
the boundary line now being estab
lished between Alaska and British
Columbia are not heeded, and that
the survey will continue without in
terruption." Hay isn't listening to the protests
of mere Americans.
The republican national committee
rises with great dignity to explain the
Alaka boundary land gift made by
Mr. M.-Kin'.ey to England. Its spokes
man is Senator Scott, of West Vir
ginia. Here is the explanation:
Instead of having ceded to Great
Britain territoty as large as the state
of Khidc Island, not one inch has ben
surrendered t that country. Ua the
other hand. England surrendered to
us niaeteeu-twentieths of the land
whose possession had tx-eu in dis
pute." In other words, when England puts
her rapacious baaa in our pocket and
takes tJ-. we snould be grateful for
the f 19 she consents to return, and
allow her to keep the twentieth. Here
is a new ratio with a vengeance.
The plain, ugly fact of the matter
js and the republican national com-
Gettlng Keady to Stay.
Notwithstanding all thedeelarations
to the contrary at the outset of the
invasion of China, as far a3 this coun
try is concerned, signs even now ap
pear of plans for an indefinite stay in
the celestial kincrdnui. And in due
time the excuse will be made that it
was a proposition of which we could not
in justice to the world let go. or that
the American tlag must stay wherever
it goes up, etc. We see in the admin
istration pipers of the pist two days
that the United States propose to
hold the sword over China's head,"
and will "not recall the troops until
demands are met and assurances of
peace given." And. more than this
the future policy of this government
in the orient is to be determined by
reports of officers."
Meanwhile the country continues to
rush troops to China, just as it did to
the Philippines, while from within
the wailed city comes the tidings that,
not stopping with the rescue of the
legations, tne sacred inner city is
being stormed and looted. In all this
the United States must, of course,
participate under the present admin
istration idea, or it might not get its
share of whatever is to come iu mod
ern empire building.
