Riro since the 15 per cent compromise
with plain duty. It seems to have
been considered that if this bank were
also given the circulation privilege
Porto Uico might appear to be recog
nized as a full territory of the United
Mates. Something has to be held
back in all matters concerning the
island for the sake of consistency in
the president's policy. It's a good deal

Probably the world never produced
a greater scoundrel than JaDt. r.ster
hazy, the man who inspired the fa
mous Dreyfus persecution. Dreyfus
was twice courtmartialed on the
charge of having written a document
betraying army secrets to a foreign
nation. Ibi3 document has been
found in the personal effects of Ester
hazy, though he swore it was never
in his possession. It was, however,
generally believed that Eitcrhazy him
self wrote it. The fact that it has
now been located in his possession
seems to brand him both a liar and
scoundrel, and worthy of a far greater
punishment than the mere formal
exile which he is now undergoing.
The bluff that was worked so effect
ively four years ago by republicans
has been introduced into the present
campaign, a little late, but with no
less spirit of desperation. It is to
the effect that numerous gigantic
deals contemplating the employment
cf vast armies ot labor will be held in
abeyance pending the result of the
election, and that if Bryan i? elected
they will be abandoned. If such trans
actions are contemplated they are
prompted by the benefits they
will prove to those interested,
and not with any consideration for
politics or the labor that is to be em
ployed. When conditions justify them
these so-called big deals will go
through, no matter who is elected, or
who cares, or who, besides those in
terested. is affected either way. If
the time is threatened in this country
when capital may say to the voters.
"either vote for the man we want for
president or you will have dull
times. "the quicker the people remove
the conditions that give to capital
such an advantage, the better.
HOIVIiKYAN MADE A CO.WElll.
If Bryan has not made any other
converts on the trip through Wast Vir
ginia, he made one at Sewell, where.
under the spell of the Nebraskan's
argumentative powers, the most intlu
ential man of the placo was turned
from an enraged republican, shaking
his hand angrily in the face of Mr.
Bryan, to the Bryanitc A-avitig his
hat after the speeding train, and all
within the space of five minutes. A
correspondent tells the story as fol
"As Bryan was speaking, an elderly
Welshman who has largo interests
in and around Sewell and who has
been a republican, rnshed up to the
platform, his face livid with anger.
and shaking his list at Bryan, he
'What about the treaty? You
helped to ratify it.'
"As Bryan started to answer, the

the man shouted:
"Bryan ordered tire conductor to
stop the train and began to explain
hi course. Again the train started
and again the man to whom Mr. Bryan
was talking gave a triumphant shout.
This time Mr. Brvan ordered that the
train be stopped and held till he said
it should be started. As he
proceeded with his explanation
of his part in the ratinca

HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF.
When the American colonies re
belled against the English crown an4
declared their independence, the
American people were believed by the
Europeans to be "savages or barbari
ans, incapable of resisting incursion
or oppression, ignorant of all the
practices of civilized nations and the
principles of government, incapable
of self-restraint, utterly incapacitated
for self-government and whollv unfit
ted for liber tv."
They pitied us for "the oppression
and barbarity of our homemade ty
rants and military despots," and hon
estly believed that their own brand of
oppression would be freedom far in ad
vance oi anything we coma accom
plish for ourselves. The striking
parallel between our own present at
titude toward the Filipinos and the
former position assumed by England
toward this country goes much farther
that' this. Indeed, a report of the

debates in the English parliament at
that time needs only the alteration of
the proper names of the participants
to have been taken verbatim from the
Congressional Uecord of last winter.
In November, 1777, the marquis of
Granby moved in the British parlia
ment an amendment to the crown ad
dress "to request his majesty to adopt
some measures for accommodating the
differences with America and recom
mending a cessation of ail hostilities
as necessary for the effectuating of so
desirable a purpose."
In the debate on this amendment
the friends of the government
took the ground "that, indepen
dent of arms, there was every
reason for hoping that the troubles ia
America would be brought to a happy
conclusion; that the great bounties
which the congress offered to soldiers
wao an irrefragible proof of the diffi
culties which they experienced in en
deavoring to recruit their forces; that
the hardship which the people act
ually suffered at present under the
despotism oi their tyrants, compared
with that mild and happy government
which tbey had withdrawn themselves
f roni'and under which they had risen
to such vt degree of power and great
ness, had already nearly brought
them to a sense of their error and
would soon make them sick of their
rebellion. That the proposed amend
ment, if carried, would only tend to
revive and keep up that wild 6pirit
of independence by which the people
had so long been hurried away from
the right use or application of their
reason; and that they could not,
therefore, but consider themselves as
enemies to their country were they
not to stamp a direct negative upon
the amendment." English Annual

There are republican clubs, and re
publican clubs, but the three big re
publican clubs that are being used
most energetically to defeat the will
of the people in the present campaign
are coercion, corruption and coloniza
tion. Election day i3 a little over a
week distant. The voters will elect
Bryan with an overwhelming majori
ty if they are allowed to vote their
convictions and have the votes honest
Iv counted. Coercion is being used
more quietly than in '96 and less ef
fective, but with quite as much de
termination to force wage workers to
vote for McKinley. The republicans
know very well that the great indus
trial vote is for Bryan. Even the un
skilled wage worker who belongs to
no union can understand that trust
domination means slavery for him
when he finds his wages cut that the
trust may declare great dividends
He objects to paying trust prices for
the necessaries of life while his wages
are lower than in '96.. .No laborer is
so ignorant thit be cannot take home
to himself the lesson of the anthracite
miners, starved into rebellion by the
coal combine. The republican party
has made it entirely clear that it is the
friend and ally and representative of
trusts. Logically, then, it is against
the wage worker.
Organized labor sees its very exis
tence menaced by the trusts. The
iron molders of Cleveland, the build.
ng trades of Chicago, the cigarmak-
kers of New York, the street railway
employes of St. Louis, the ircn and
steel workers of Ohio and IlliuoisNthe
coal miners of Pennsylvania and a
score of other industries are waking
to the realization that the first and
foremost of their enemies are the
trusts and combines.
The systematic coercion began early
his year. The alleged amendments to
the constitution and to the Sherman
aw, fathered by the republican party,
were dictated oy me trusts ior the
sole purpose of declaring labor unions
unlawful combinations and thus pro
viding means to crush them. Neither
of these amendments was intended
to restrain trusts in the slightest de
gree. The democrats championed the
cause of organized- labor in congress
and defeated the constitutional amend
ment when the republicans refused to
exempt labor unions from its opera
tion. When the democrats forced the
amendment to the Sherman law ex
interested in the miners until afterl
empting labor unions from its opera
tion, the republicans voluntarily
buried it in the senate. Every wage
worker who belongs to a labor union
knows of this attempt of the repub
lican party to put into the hands of
the trusts the power to disband them.
When the political side of the con
spiracy failed the trusts Lagan the
plan of private coercion. There are
thousands of factories scattered
through the country today which have
over their doors a notice that no mem
ber of a local union will be employed.
Workingmen understand that the war
fare against their unions has only be
gun. It will be prosecuted with un
relentinjg ferocity if McKinley is re
elected and the trusts given a free
hand for another four years. It is not
a question of party in voting for
Bryan. It is a measure of self-protection.
Wageworkers this year ilatly refuse
to believe that Bryan's election can
endanger their chances of employ
ment. Oa the face of it, coercioa is
working very satisfactorily for the
republicans. Workmen maintain a
judicious silence about Bryan. Every
time a forced poll is taken it
strengthens.thc determination of the
men to assert their freedom and man
hood at the ballot -box, even if they do
not dare to in the workshop.
The ominous silence with which
coercive tactics aro being used on
the men is the best proof that the men
are not wasting time making protest
beforehand. They know when and
where it will be effectual.
Hanna and his lieutenants are col
onizing and distributing large sums
of monev with which to manipulate
the returns. A stolen election is just
as good for their purpose as an hon
est one. The democrats, however,
are determined to protect the victory
which is already in their hands.
Earnest, loyal Bryan men are to b
stationed at every precinct in the
country. A free ballot and an honest
count is going to be had if we have to
fight for it.
Ihere can be no nobler struccla
than to protect the right of suffrage
The trusts hope, through republican
macninery, 10 intimidate the voiers
and failing in that, to count enough
votes for themselves to offset tie
people's protest against the un-Amer
ican policy of this administration.
if everv democrat, in addition to
casting his vote, will make it a part
oi nis business on election day to see
that neither fraud nor intimidation U
permitted at his precinct, he will be
doing a great service to his country
a u a to himself.
Wageworkers hardly need advice
Iheir minds are already made up to
vote ior irectiom ior themselves in
stead cf slavery to the trusts.
ine election oi uryan means more
recognition ior labor than has ever
been known in this country. The
trusts will be compelled to t-queeze
the water out of their stocks. Labor
will not longer be compelled to pay
the dividends on water stock out of
the wealth which it produces which
should be given to it.
With a representative of labor as a
cabinet officer and taking active part
in the counsels of government, it will
not be possible for the trusts to crush
labor unions, import cheap labor ad
libitum or to starve labor as the coal
miners and sweat shop operatives are

"Stringtown on the Tike," by John
Uri Lloyd, and "Pinpi Passes"' by
Robert Browning, the latter with illus
trations -by Margaret Armstrong, are
two of the latest popular publications
sent out from the publishing bouse of
Dood. Mead & Co., New York City.
Stringtown on the Pike," although
written by a practically new writer,
was selected as the Bookman serial
for 1900. The scenes are laid in one
of the quaintest villages of northeast
Kentncky. The action begins at the
time of the war of secession, when
the hero a ragged little urchin
trudging along the dusty pike, and
rontinnes until the boy if well into
manhood. The story is marked by a
freshness, a vigor and a lire that are
not often found " in contemporary
fiction. The book is essentially dra
matic and situation follows situation
with a swiftness that keeps the reader
keyed up from the time that he first
meets Sammy Drew, in Bloody Hol
low, until the'time when in company
with Cupe and Dinan he takes leave
of Susie at the gate of the beautiful
convent in Nazareth. Ky.
"Pippa Passes" is one of the most
widely quoted and perhaps the best
known of Robert Browning's longer
poems.- Miss Armstrong, who is one
of the foremost decorative artists of
the day, has elaborated for it a re
markable series of designs, ornamen
tal head and tail pieces, and borders
of great beauty and originality. It
should prove a'very popular holiday
