HE WANTS MORE MONEY.
Dangerous demagogue and agitator thai
he ie, Mr. Bryan occasionally opens a loop?
hole through which his selfieh and insin
cere nature shines. In a recent speech h<
gave utterance to the following remarke:
"Have you not some other interest ir
this world than money ? Is there noth
ing that touches your heart except money'
Is there no sound that is Bweet to your eat
save the jingling of coin? Is there nc
color that makes your eye brighten but the
glittering yellow? It there, is anything
else in this world besides money that yot
love, in the name of that something else 1
would appeal to you not to sacrifice th(
whole world to the greed of gain. Ifyot
want to pile up money.letme tell you that ]
am not an enemy of money. I want to se<
people independent; I want to have mor<
money than I have myself; I want t<
live in a good house; I want a bettei
house than I have ever been able to liv<
in, but I want you to understand this
that no man in this world can afford t(
build his house out of his neighbor'i
I.eave merely money to your children
and they may quarrel about it when yot
are gone. It may be the means of es
tranging them and making them enemie
of each other; and even if it does not, i
may take wings in the morning and fh
away, and ten years from the day of you
death your children may be in need
Yes?and your children's children may b
more in need; and you can't tell but tha
the children of those you rob to-day wil
rob your children when you are here n
Coming from the lips of some men thes
sentiments might be considered sincere
though on their face they bear the stam
of insincerity and inconsistency. Uomin;
from Mr. Bryan they are the perfection c
political cant and claptrap. The pas
f ur yens of Mr. Bryan's life have show)
that he seemed to have no other interes
i?i the world but money. lie talks nbou
nothing else and nothing seems to tone!
h'? heart but money. There is "no ?oun<
that if so sweet to his car as the jingling o
coin.'' From the abundance of the hear
ihe.mosth'speaketh, and as Mr. Bryai
makes free silver tfie buiden of his song
we are justified in concluding that nothing
touches his heart except silver money, anc
that there is no color that makes his eyt
brighten but the glittering white metal.
A few years ago we heard Haskine Hob
son, then the leader of the Populist partv
in Virginia, make a speech. After he had
denounced rich men and the money powei
for about one hour he wound up by saying
that he wished he had a million of dollars.
So, Mr. Bryan,after preaching the dangers
that follow the love of money, confesses
that he wants to have more money him?
self, though he has in the last few years
accumulated what would be considered in
this section quite a respectable fortune, if
we are permitted to judge of its size by
the amount of taxes he pays. He wants
a better house than he has ever been able
to live in, but he does not want to build
that house with his neighbor's money.
Who are his neighbors? From the ex?
treme solicitude be seems to exercise for
all the people, the Ameiican pubiic must
be his neighbors. The fortune he has
already acquired in these three years,
without any occupation but that of a
political lecturer, mv% therefore, have
been taken from bis neighbors. Mr.
Bryan ie insincere.
Elsewhere on tb;s page we publish an
extract from the Portland Oregonian,
which gives the expressed sentiments of
Stephen A. Douglas on the subject of ex?
pansion, as held by him in 1858. At that
time Mr. Douglas was one of the greatest
leaders of the Democracy, measuriug
swords with the great Abraham Lincoln
for control of Illinois and of the Nation.
Mr. Douglas was known as the "little
Giant," and as compared with Mr. Bryan,
the present leader of the Democracy, was
truly a giant.
Tnk exports from the United States tbis
year have already pr"?sed the billion dol?
lar mark. Those who claimed that the
heavy exports of 1898 were caused by the
shortage of crops in Europe, and that
1899 would ehow a great reduction in our
export trade with foreign countries, are
now ehown to be in error. While there
has been a heavy reduction in exporta?
tion of agricultural products the gain
in other lines has been sufficient to bring
the export trade up to within a few million
dollars of what it was in 1898.
HOW CAN THEY 8E REACHED?
Heretofore the legislation, Federal and
State, against trusts has been shaped to
prevent combinations between firms or
pools to advance or maintain prices. The
special acts to prevent such combinations
have received prompt consideration by the
courts. The new kind of trusts or compa?
nies that are now being organized are of a
different character to those af^ainst which
legislation has been directed. Now, in
ste id of a number of firms being organized
into a trust, a company is formed which
b.iys up all the works it can get engaged
iu some particular industry, and runs as
one new company, owning and controllirg
all the property it has secured by pur?
chase. Here, in Southwest Virginia, we
have an illustration in the Carter Syndi?
cate, known as the Virginia Iron, Coal
and Coke Company. This company has
bought up all the furnaces and mines it
could secure and has made an effort to get
the othets. It has not tried to make any
agreement, so far as we are informed, to
regulate the price of iron, but it will cer?
tainly be in a position to regulate the iron
industry in Southwest Virginia.
Can these companies that have obtained
control of ah the industries in their sec?
tion, 01 all of a certain class throughout
the country, be reached by anti-trust legis?
lation? They may destroy competition,
but it will be by purchase and not by
pooling issues. An individual has the
right to regulate his own business as he
chooses. Will a company have theeame
right as attaches to the individual. The
individual can fix the pric 1 at which he
I sells his products, can the company which
has control of any one article of Cununercc
do the same thing? This is a Eerious
question that will have to be treated by

WORLD OUR MARKET.
Exports This Year Pass the Billion
Good crops in all the world in the year
189S-'99 will probably make the export
figures of the United Slates for the fiecal
year about to end a few million dollars less
than those of the banner year 1898. The
(innres covering the exports during the 11
months ended with May indicate that dur?
ing this period the total exports are about
Sfl.OOO.OCO, less the those of the corres?
ponding months of the preceding year.
While the total for the 12 months will be
slightly below those of the unprecedented
year 1898, they will be much in excess of
any other year. For the 11 months of the
year 1899 the total exports are $1,130,629,
572, while in no other year, except in
lS98,did the total exports of the 11 months
reach the billion-dollar line.
The reduction in exportation is entire?
ly in agricultural products, being nearly
i-50,000,000 less than that of last year. In
189S the crops in all parts of the world,
except the United States, were unusually
light, and as a consequence the prices re?
alized for farm products exported were
much higher than the average for many
years. The average price of wheat export?
ed in the present year has been 74A cents
per bushel,against 93A cents the correspond?
ing months of last year; fionr also shows
a reduction in value per barrel, while
the average export value of cotton in the
present year has been 5.1 cents per pound,
against nearly G cents per pound last year.
In quantity, the exports of wheat in the
11 months whose figures are completed
was slightly in access of that of last year,
while Hour exceeded by more than 2,000,
000 barrels the figures of the correspond?
ing months of last year. In corn and oats
there has been a decided reduction. In
bacon there has been a reduction in quan?
tity of exports, but this is more than made
up by an increase in the exportatione of
hams and fresh pork.
One curious feature in the reduction ol
our exportations relates to live cattle, in
which the exportations of the year are 25
per cent, below those of the corresponding
months of 189S, the total being $24,484,
S23,against $32,352,833 last year. In othei
lines of provisions, however, such as salted
beef, tallow, lard, oleomargarine, poultry
and milk, there has been an increase ol
about $S,000,000 over those of last year, oi
uflicient to oflset the lots in the exporta?
tion of live cattle.

DOUGLAS AS AN EXPANS10NEST.
The Great Democrat Suggested the an
cxation of "the Islands of the Ocean."
From the Portland Oregonian.]
11 Here is what Stephen A. Douglas saic
11 on the subject of expansion at Freeport
III., August 27, 1S58 :
"It is idle to tell me or you that wt
have territory enough. Our fathers sup?
posed that we had enough when our terri?
tory extended to the Mississipi river, bu!
a few years' growth and expansion satisfied
them that we needed more, and I^ouisiana
territory, from the west branch of the Mis
sisspi to the British possessions, was ac?
quired. Then we acquired Oregon, then
California and New Mexico. We have
enough now for the present, but this is a
young and growing nation. It swarms a?
often as a bive of bees, and as new swarms
are timed out each year, there must be
hives in which they can gather and make
their honey. In less than fifteen years,
if the same progress that has distinguished
this country for the last fifteen years con?
tinues, every foot of vacant land between
this and the Pacific ocean, owned by the
United States, will be occupied. Will you
not continue to increase at the end of fif?
teen years as well as now?
"I tell you increase and multiply, and
expand is the law of this nation's existence.
You cannot limit this great republic by
mere imaginary lines, saying 'thus far
shalt thou go and no father. 'Any one of
you gentlemen would be foolish to say to a
son 12 years old that he is big enough, and
must not grow any larger, and in order to
prevent his growth put a hoop around
him to keep him to his present size.
What wou'd be the result? Either the
hoop must bt,rst and be rent asunder, or
the child must d;e. So it would be with
this great nation.
With our natural increrse, growing
with a rapidity unknown in any other
part of the globe, with the tide of emigra?
tion that is fleeing from dnpotism in the
Old World to seek refuge in our own, there
is a constant torrent pouring into th'9
country that requires more land, more
territory upon which to settle, and just as
fa9t as our interesh and destiny require
additional territory in the North, in the
South, or on the islands of .the ocean, I
am for it."

There are plenty of men that can rid<

Captain Coghlan, of the Raleigh, in an
interview given at Terre Haute, Ind., very
eensibly refused to discuss the ''Hoch der
Kais?r" incident but was quite outspoken
in regard to what is called hyphenated
Americanism. As the Captain obseryed.
"If a man is an American citizen, he is
an American citizen pure and simple. I
have no patience with this hyphenated citi?
zenship. There is nothing that Europe
would rather see today than the existence
of factional lines in our citizenship."
And in this the Captain is quite right.
Nothing could be worse for the United
States than to have within its borders
large bodies of citizens unable to make up
their opinion on home affairs until they
heard from Berlin, Vienna, Paris, London,
Rome or any other political, national or
racial center of Europe. If as some think,
we shall get into all sorts of trouble by be?
coming involved in Europeau politics by
renson of the policy of expansion, how
much more disastrous for the future of the
United States as a united nation if Euro?
pean jealou?irs and bickerings are main?
tained and perpetuated in the United
States by those who view American citizen?
ship as merely a condition that puts them
in a position to advance the interests of the
fatherland at the expense of their adopted
country. Hyphenated Americanism is a
pretty poor substitute for the real thing.

CIGARETTES BY BILLIONS.
The Enormous Number Exported From
This Conntry to Asia.
Seattle "I'ost-Intclliftenrpr." ]
An investigation based on lite, arrival
in Tacoma this ? eck of three car loads of
cigarettes for transshipment to Shanghai
and Tokyo on one of the North American
Steamship Company's liners bring? to
light the enormous traffic in this line of
luxuries that i.s being carried on between
the United States and nations of the
Orient. When the actual figures in car
loads of the shipments from the Pacific
C >ast this year arc reduced to pounds, and
then to the number of cigarettes in the
totii!, figures are reached that are amazing
and almost incalculable.
These three car loads weighed a total of
98,127 pounds, deducting the weight of
cases, packages, etc., amounting to 2,453
175 packages, such as are sold in Seattle
f >r 5 and 10 cents each. As each of these
contains ten cigarettes, this.one shipment
includes a total of 24,631,750 cigarettes.
But this single shipment of three cars is
in reality a small portion of the traffic in
this commodity; As nearly complete a*
the figures could be gotten yesterday, it
appears that since? the beginning of the
year no less than 198 car loads have been
received on the coast, which have been
transferred to steamships and taken to the
Orient, principally to China and Japan,
although the people of the Philippine Is?
lands consume a considerable quantity.
The average weight of the contents in eig
areltee of these IDS cars was 32,480
pounds, excluding the weight of the cases
and packages, making a total of 5,531,010
pounds of cigarettes. On the basis of 25(1
cigarettes lo the pound, which is as nearly
the correct average weight, as can be esti?
mated, this gives a total of 1,382,700,00(1
cigarettes. And, strange as it may seem,
these figures are somewhat below the
average, as the stocks that were rushed
into Japan just before the higher tarifl
law went into effect January 1 have not
been consumed. It is considered that the
average consumption in Oriental coun?
tries of American cigarettes amounts tc
approximately 600 car loads, 19,488,O0C
pounds, or 4,S72,000.0;>0 in number.
Mr. Stevens, a prominent exporter ol
Portland, who was in the city yesterday,
w?? doing a little figuring on Oriental bus?
iness, when he came across some of the
foregoing computations, and then he went
on to say : "The prospects of this Pacific
Coast country to realize an enormous com?
merce out of the Orient are simply incom?
prehensible. We are given to thinking
big and talking big of the trans-Pacilit
outlook, bu? little wo do rca'ly know ol
the extent this commerce is bound to as
sume. We half the time forget that in
direct line with the coast live half the peo?
ple of the worl J, and that they must dn
their trading through the Western State;
of the Union.
"There is a great awakening among
those semi-civi'ized folk, and it is increa?
sing so rapidly that I am not exaggerating
the prospects when I prophesy that within
ten years the exports of the Pacific coast
will be more than equal to (hose of the en?
tire Atlantic. Those coming customers ol
ours are a slow people to realize the bless?

THE PACIFIC COAST.
It Is for Expansion, and Does Not care
Who Knows It.
Washington "Star" [Ind.]
The despatch from San Francisco,
signed by Senator Perkins and ex-Senator
White, tendering to the Government on
the part of Southern California "a w ell or?
ganized and thoroughly disciplined reei
tnent of infantry' for service in the Philip?
pines, makes exceedingly agreeable read?
ing. These gentlemen, it is evident, are
personally in sympathy with the spirit of
the offering, and thereby lianas a tale.
No two Senators more earnestly opposed
expansion as that question related to the
Philippines than Me t.?. Perkins and
White. The one a Republican and the
other a Democrat, they yet stood together
?i against the appearenee of the United
Stat.s a3 a power in that quarter of the
globe. Mr. White, for that matter, had
opposed every step that had led up to the
problem. But, all the time, the people of
Ca'ifornia were in favor of American con?
trol of the archipelago.
When the time approached for the Se?
nate to vote on the treaty with Spain the
California Legislature instructed the two
Senators from the State to support the
treaty. Mr. Perkins accepted the in?
structions and obeyed them. Mr. White,
who wrs matked for retirement from office
at the c.lo~e of the Seuate's session, disre?
garded them and held to his individual
opinion. The vote on the treaty was close,
and Mr. Pe-kins' support was highly im?
portant in the premises.
But that chapter is closed. Messrs.
Perkins and White?the one still in office
and the other now in private life?look at
the matter at this time in the light of the
great'y altered circumstances. The Philip?
pine Islands ave American territory.
American authority there must be asserted
and maintained. It is no longer a ques?
tion of extending American boundaries
but of holding the pv tigeof the country.
And they, in a way, highly creditable to
them ??? following their former position,
range themselves with tnose who are en?
deavoring to make complete the American
control of the Philippines.

The American Sugar Refining Company,
the Sugar Truet, makes its money on the
difference between the cost of raw sugar
and the price of refined sugar. Every ad?

Under the Wilson tariff the yearly aver?
age net price of the standard grade of raw
sugar (96 degrees centrifugal), the price of
granulated or refined sugar and the differ?
ence betwreen them per pound in cents was

1897 .3.557 4.503 0.946

this gap steadily widened, and every in?
