THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 189S.
WHAT WILL WE DO WITH THEM ?
There can be no denial that the Ameri?
can people are united in a determination
to drive Spain from control of all her pos?
sessions in the West Iudies. It is also
plainly their purpose to never surrender
the Philippines to Spain if we once take
them into possession. The United States
went to war reluctantly for the purpose of
freeing Cuba from Spanish oppression;
and in the effort to accomplish that end
finds it necessary to take possession of the
Philippines and also of Porto Rico. The
war has been in progress less than two
months and the American tiag floats
bravely on Cuban soil and triumphantly
at Manila bay. Without the war is speedily
concluded, by Spain suing for peace, it will
be but a short while before the United
States army and navy will attack and take
San Juan. If the plans of the Govern?
ment are carried out and we do get
control of all the colonial possessions of
Spain, the question will have to be deter?
mined "what will we do with them?"
Shall they be turned over to Spain again
that it may continue the barbarous treat?
ment of the inhabitants which has pro?
voked this dreadful war? Or shall tbey
be disposed of in such a manner as un?
friendly European monarchies may dic?
tate? Shall they be placed under the
management of the inhabitants for self
government until it shall be determined,
whether they are capable of managing
their affairs ? Or will the United States
annex them as territory acquired by right
If we succeed in whipping ?pain these
questions will immediately present them?
selves and will have to be settled. How
they shall be determined will have to re?
main unsettled until the war is concluded
and our Government is completely trium?
Certain politicians in the Demecratic
party are already beginning their efforts
to make the question a political one.
They pretend to believe that the an?
nounced purpose of our Government
never to permit Spain to rule her colonies
again, and not to submit to European dic?
tation as to what shall be done in the
premises is proof of "Inperalism" on the
part of the McKinley administration and
the Republican party. These politicians
(among, theui Mr. Bryan and Mr, Cleve?
land) are a little premature. What we
will do with the Philippines cannot now
be considered as a question for specific
settlement. When the emergency arises
the Republican party, if in power, will
bravely meet the issue and determine the
question with its utual good sense and pa?
triotism. So far as the annexation of new
territory is concerned when it is good
policy to annex it will not hesitate to do
so. This it is no* endeavoring to do in
the case of Hawaii. Some of the Demo?
crats affect to believe that it is contrary to
the traditions of our government and
wrong in principle to annex or acquire
new outlying territory. Both as a matter
of principle and policy the Democrats are
greatly divided in the matter. Some of
the most influential papers that stood by
Mr. Cleveland through all his political
trials have already announced themselves
favorable to what he calls "Imperialism;"
and some of the most powerful free coin?
age newspapers that championed the cause
of Mr. Bryan have taken their stand for
holding the Philippines by right of con?
The Republican party will be solidily
for a policy that will be right and for the
best interests of our country. When the
time comes that party will settle the vexed
question in a way that the great mass of
the people will endorse.
WHY SHOULD THEY?
The Bryanites have declared that they
will carry the Ninth Congressional District
next Fall by a large majority. On what
do they base their calculations, or from
what source do they draw their conclu?
sions? Has the Republican party been so
derelict that the heavy majority which was
given for McKinley and Walker in 1896
will be wiped out in 1898 and Bryanism
sustained by our people? Has the Repub?
lican administration been faithless to the
promises made in the national platform,
or Congress failed to do its duty? These
are queetions that should receive the care?
ful and intelligent consideration of the
voters of the Ninth District.
No honest man can deny that the Re?
publican party has promptly discharged
its pledge to reform our tariff laws,and has
performed that work in a manner which
brought a condition of prosperity to all
classes of business in our country. Nor
can it be denied that the party has ad?
hered to its pledge to prevent the enact?
ment of unwise financial legislation and to
protect the credit and integrity of the
government. It is an admitted fact by men
of all political persuasions that theadminis
tralration of our national affaire under the
direction of Mr. McKinley has been clean,
I able and patriotic. We have heard the
! most ultra Democrats state that no one
[ could do better than McKinley has done.
Then, it is an admitted fact that the |
business conditions of the country have
been greatly improved since control of the
government was restored to the Republi?
can party. Our political adversaries have
endeavored to discount these results or
conditions by chiming that they have
come from natural causes and not as a
consequence of Republican legislation.
Anyhow these conditions followed Repub?
lican success in 189G and hope and confi?
dence were immediately restored to every
business interest in the United States.
Men of enterprise went confidently to I
work, industries that had been idle for
years resumed operations and new enter?
prises have been springing up iu all sec?
tions of the Union, especially at the South,
6ince McKinley's election. The agricul?
turists of the country have never been
more hopeful, because of the splendid pri?
ces they have been receiving for their
products and the bright prospects that the
future seems to have in ?tore for them.
The fa: mere of the Ninth District cannot |
be otherwise than satisfied, yes delighted,
with the prices and conditions that now |
prevail. Yet the Bryanitee pretend to be
iieve that the farmers, the laborers, the
manufacturers and business men of this
district are so much disappointed and dis?
satisfied with existing conditions that they
will vote against the prosperity which has
come again, and for plunging once more
into a sea of troubles that threatened their
destruction under a Democratic adminis?
We assert without fear of contradiction'
that there has been no weakening in the
support of Republican principles by the
voters of the Ninth District. Free silver
ism and free trade are vastly weaker than
they were in 1S9G. The Democrats can
have but one hope for success in this dis?
trict at the approaching Congressional
election, and that is the bold and shame?
less use of the unfair election law which
was made for fraud and which the ma?
chine has ordered to be used here as
well as in other parts of the State.
Under its usual caption, "Some District
Talk," the Clinch Yalley News of last
week expresses the opinion that the Re?
publicans of this district are seriously dis?
turbed at the prospect of Judge Rhea's
nomination for Congress; and that we are
pretending to think him weat when we
know to the contrary. In the course of its
remarks the News says:
''They say he is a gold man, but if we
want to put up a gold man, or a bras9
man, or an iron man. or a man made of
aluminum, how in the name of Belzeelub
is it their funeral. We sadly fear that a
godly desire for Judge Rhea's welfare, is
not at the bottom of all this solicitude,
and we are almost assured from certain oc?
currences beretofore, that they are not
yearning after the success of the Demo?
cratic party. What is the cause of it!
We havn't the slightest objection to the
nomination of the "brass-aluminum" man
who is the candidate of the News. "In
the name of Belzeebub" be and his friends
are determined to have his funeral take
place after the November election. The
News is right, it is not our funeral that is
Seriously, Rhea's certain nomination
has been acsnowledged by and known to
the Republicans for some months, He
was nominated by the Tom Martin ma?
chine last Winter, that nomination was
confirmed at the meeting of the Demo?
cratic district committee some weeks ago
at Big Stone Gap, and next Tuesday there
will be a further ratification of the sugges?
tions of the machine by the unanimous
nomination of Rhea at Pulaski.
Trot, out your "brass-aluminum" man,I
and tTae Republicans will certainly prepare
him for his political funeral.
The conference committee's bankrupt
bill was passed by the Senate last Friday,
and will be passed by the House, of Rep?
resentatives, no doubt, without delay.
The compromise bill allows proceedings in
involuntary bankruptcy to be instituted
in Ihe following cases:
First?Where a man has disposed of his
property with intent to defraud.
Second?Where he has disposed of his I
property to one or more creditors with |
intent to give a preference to them.
Third?Where he has given a prefer?
ence through legal proceedings.
Fourth?Where a man has made a vol?
untary assignment for the benefit of his |
creditors generally; and,
Fifth?Where a man admits in writing j
that he is bankrupt.
Cleveland is opposed to what he calls ]
"Imperialism." Bryan ia opposed to what
be terms "Imperialism." If taking the
possessions of Spain and directing what
shall be done with them is what Mr,
Cleveland and Mr Bryan call' 'Imperialism "
then the country is going that way. But j
it is not Imperialism, it is Americanism.
What we tight for and take we will hold,
or say who shall hold it. The politician
who undertakes to eonrince the American
people that they ought to pursue any
other course well be buried beneath the
scorn of the voters of the country.
The Populists are rejoicing over that
feature of the revenue bill which places a
tax on bank checks. They think it will
be a' great infliction on the rich men. La
this they are mistaken, for most of the
checks drawn on banks are by men of
ordinary means engaged in business.
The Klondike excitement has been su
perseded by the war excitement. It may
be fortunnte.as there were, no doubt, very
greatly exaggerated reports about the won?
derful finds of gold that were being made
in the Klondike region.
The Spaniards are most remarkable
soldiers. They can repuise an enemy nnd
fall back constantly at the same time, with
the enemy still pursuing.
WILT. Mr. Cleveland tell the country
the best way to get rid of the Philippines?
Will Mr. Bryan suggest a way to dispose
of them ?
Thk Democratic party is essentially a
party of the past. It is always looking
back and clinging to antiquated ideas.
Philadelphia Press. ]
Ex-President Cleveland finds consider?
able difficulty in drawing an indictment
when he has no counts.
He objects, in Iub address at Lawrence
ville to "schemes of foreign conquest."
He names none, and for a very good rea?
son?there are none to name. Who has
any "schemes of foreign conquest?" In
not another war in history has a nation
solemnly declared that it would not ac?
quire its lenemy's most profitable posses?
sion, as has the United States with Cuba.
The situation is simple. It is discredi?
table either to Mr. Cleveland's perspicac?
ity or to his candor that he either does
not see it or does not accept it in his
speech. The United States is at war.
The cause of the war has had Mr. Cleve?
land's approval. It is the outgrowth of
his policy, a policy he inherited from bis
predecessors and which his successor has
carried to its logical and legitimate con?
\ This war has to be waged, as any other
has to be, by attacking the possessions of
the enemy and securing the military and
naval bases needed to do this. There is
no other way to make war. Limited war
entails a limited liability of victory. In
making war, as an act of war and because
there is no other way to make war, the
United States has seized Manila and will
seize the Philippines, and has bombarded
San Juan and will seize Porto Kico. It
is about to annex Hawaii as a necessary
naval base. This is no more a "scheme of
conquest" than Montgomery's attack on
Quebec, the landing in the Bahamas,
Eaton's march in North Africa and his
seizure of a post there, our second inva?
sion of Canada, the landing at Vera Cruz,
or our seizure of the Pacific ports of
These were all acts of war. They were
not acts of conquest. When the war was
over we decided then what we would do
with the result. We shall now. He is a
rash man, lacking in prudence, not to say
patriotic prescience, who anticipates this
decision in time or war and thereby di?
vides national councils and raises partisan
issues over the conduct of war in which no
step has been taken not demanded b.y
military and naval .experts. Would Mr.
Cleveland, if he were directing war as
President, disregard military and naval
When the war is over the United States
will be forced to decide as to its next step.
The Hawaiian Islands every military and
naval expert deems necessary, and it
would to-day be the gravest moral wrong
to ntutral rights and a most dangerous
precedent if we did not annex them, or
used them, becauee we are strong, in de?
fiance of international law. The country
has had an object lesson which has con?
vinced the country, the President and a
majority of both houses that we are not
safe without them.
As to the two Spanish possessions, 'the
Philippines and Porto Kico, the decision
comes later. It will raise moral consider?
ations we must face and decide. War
will have made the United States respon?
sible for these islands. Mr. Cleveland ap?
parently thinks that nations are under no
moral considerations. He breathes no
word of the grave moral responsibility of
the nation for the future of the popula?
tions of these islands. They are weak,
defenseless, and, in the Philippines, as a
whole, incapable of self-government.
Porto Kico is in doubt on this point. A
moral responsibility may not appeal to
Mr. Cleveland, but the nation over which
he has twice presided never has avoided
moral responsibilities, except in the dark
period in which the party which elected
Mr. Cleveland misled it. The nation will
not now, and it will neither be deceived
nor deterred as to its moral duty to those
made its wards without desire by vague
declamation about "schemes of foreign
conquest," particularly when they are ad?
dressed to a nation which has annexed
more square miles, not all contiguous, in
ninety-five years, from 1803 to 1898, than
any civilized government?except Eng?
land and Russia.

Praise for Hawaiian Democrats.
Memphis "Commercial Appeal" (Dem.)]
The Democratic caucus did not, it is
true, declare against the annexation of
Hawaii or make a party question of it,
but that was because it was afraid to trust
itself. It declared that a question chang?
ing the policy of this Government from its
foundation did not rise to the dignity of
a party question, and yet went on record
as opposing it while it left its members
free to do as they chose in the premises.
The Democrats who did not close their
eyes to what is going on around them and
who had the intelligence to trample anti?
quated ideas under foot and vote m the
interest of their country deserve all praise.

The President's New Flag.
The new official flag of the President of
the United States is printed, for the first
time correctly, on tha cover of the July
Ladies' Home Journal. The flag was re?
cently adopted as the President's emblem,
and henceforth will be employed to pro?
claim his official presence. When he is at
the White House the fing will be displayed
there, and wherever he may go as Presi?
dent of the United States it will be in evi?
dence. Its publication in accurate color
detail will be a matter of much interest,
inasmuch as it will acquaint the public
with the President's emblem.
One day this week an old lady in Rich

found one bearing the cabalistic letters,
"G. S. H." The lind created much ex?

Sinners Help." Another said it meant,
"God Sends Help." Still another, "God
Saves Heathens." Another that it meant
"God Sends Harmony." Finally one old
lady, noted for her religious devotion, who
had been saying little sprang to bur feet
and vehemently declared the letters stood
for "Give Spain Hell," and all agreed that
her interpretation was correct. So does
