THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1899.
A GREAT SPEECH.
We publish on the first page of this is
sue of the Republican the speech made
by President McKinley at Richmond on
Tuesday of last week. The Richmond
Times said: "There hive been fewer bet?
ter speeches made in Virginia than the
one made by President McKinley at the
launching of the Shubrick." The Times
might have said with safety that there
had never been a better one made. Rich?
mond has been a fertile held for oratory
ever since Patrick Henry made his famous
liberty speech in old St. John's chinch.
We have heard muny able speakers in
that city ouiselves and read in print the
speeches of others, but we cannot recall
anything that equals the speech of Presi?
dent McKinley, taken altogether. It is
absolutely without a flaw.
It opens with a hearty and evidently
sincere expression of pleasure at meeting
with the people of Richmond to celebrate
a new era in the history of that city, which
must have been deeply gratifying to his
auditors. That was followed by a recital
o! the gratifying conditions that now pre?
vail in the country and the national, pa?
triotic spirit that dominates all sections or
th; Union. Then comes the pointed
question. "In what respect would we
ctnmze these happy conditions with the
promises they give of the future?"
The tribute to Virginia was not fulsome,
but couched in elegant and refined terms,
that bore the impress of sincerity. The
two jxreat events, at Yorktown and Appo
m ittox, the latter always treated as a liolv
sorr >w by Virginians, were spoken of in a
manner that is rarely witnessed, so far as
good taste and sound judgment are c n
Tbe pessimists and demagogues of the
land assault President McKinley as a sen?
timentalist. Iiis speech at Richmond was
full of the noble sentiments that are only
found flowing from the heart of a true pa?
triot. Such sentiments should be taught
to our children as the noblest ami best
that can be uttered by n an.
REPORT CF PHILIPPINE COMMISSION.
'lhe Philippine Commission, consist in:.>
of .1. G. Scburman,George Dewey, Charles
Deny and Dean C. Worcester, has made a
preliminary report lo the President. This
rcpor. ougl t to convince every honest
man of the justice of the conduct of the
United States to the Filipinos. It is signed
by all the members of the Commission,
and is a compact statement of the present
condition on the island and a recital of all
the exchanges or transactions between Ad?
miral Dewey and the other American
commanders and the insurgents. An em?
phatic denial is given to the oft repeated
story that Dewey had given Aguinaldo as?
surances that the Filipinos should have an
independent government, and in that way
secured tbe support and assistance of the
The report further shows that Aguinaldo
admitted that neither Admiral Dewey nor
any other American had made him any
promises. It alto shows conclusively that
the conflict between the American troops
and the insurgents was precipitated by
Aguinaldo. The Commission pionounces
it a just war, and says: "Deplorable as
war is, the one we are now engaged in was
unavoidable by us. We were attacked by
a bold, adventurous and enthusiastic army.
No alternative was left to us except igno?
minious retreat." It further says : "The
Commission is of opinion that there has
been no time since the destruction of the
Spanish squadron by Admiral Dewey when
it was possible to withdraw our forces from
the islands: either with honor to ourselves
or with safety to the inhabitants."
The commissioners very properly treat
the movement of Aguinaldo as a rebellion
and not a national movement, and they
Bay that, "The machinery of the insur?
gent 'government' served only for plunder?
ing tbe people under pretext of laying war
contributions." Tbe commission aleo de?
clares -'that the primary object of this
struggle is not, as pretended, the liberty
of the Filipino people, but tbe continuance
of his (Aguinaldo's) own arbitrary and
It is then declared in the report that :
"Should our power by any fatality be
withdrawn, the commission believe that the
government of the Philippines would
speedily lapse into anarchy which would
excuse, if it did not necessitate, the inter?
vention of other powers, and the eventual
division of the islands among them."
The report concludes with the following
Strong paragraph :
''Our control means to the inhabitants <
af the Philippines internal peace and order,
a guarantee against foreign aggression and
against the dismemberment oi this country,
commercial and industrial prosperity, and
as large a Bhare of affairs of government as
they shall prove lit to take. When peace
and prosperity shall have been established
throughout the archipelago; when educa?
tion shall have been general, then, in the
language of a leading Filipino, his people
will, under our guidance, 'become more
American than the Americans them?
We hardly think I hat any of the so-call?
ed auli-imperiali?ts after reading the re?
port of the commission, will have the
cheek to continue their assaults upon the
Administration policy, or defend the con?
duct of Aguinaldo ami the Filipino insur?
gents. If they do, they will deserve and
recive the contempt of every honest, pa?
triotic American citizen.
EXPANSION SENTIMENT INCREASING.
When the Administration first began to
outline its policy in connection with the
Philippines the Democratic leaders, with
a few exceptions, commenced a terrible
outcry against the President and the Re?
publican party. This was especially true
at the South. His policy was attacked
upon the ground of its inhumanity and
because of its antagonism to republican
institutions. Expansion and imperialism
wore associated together, and they were
declared to be unwise and dangetous.
It was evident that the Democratic
party was trying to make a new issue to
present to the peopie in 190f>; and it was
apparent that Mr. Bryan was disposed to
side-track the money question and make
an effort to win public confidence upon a
false or assumed issue.
Recently there has been a great change
taking place in the Democratic ranks on
the Philippine question. Men who were
formerly disposed, from partisan motives,
to oppose the control of the islands in
question, are beginning to see that they
did not understand the question at all,
and had been dull in their appreciation of
the situation. This change is specially
marked at the South. We lind politicians
and newspapers of our section, that a short
time ago were denouncing McKinley and
so-called imperialism, hedging. They be?
gin to realize that the commercial interests
of the South are largely dependent upon
the trade of the United States with Orient?
al countries. The "open door" policy has
assumed an importance that has attracted
the favorable notice of many who before
were blinded by partisan prejudice. These
men, who were recently inclined to dis
cant upon the outrages that were beint
committed against the Filipinos, are be
ginning to change their tune, and are now
talking of the great benefits that are to be
derived from more intimate commercia
relations with China and other Orienta
countries. The recent letter of Senatoi
McLaurin, of South Carolina, was a strong
pointer on that line. If this change o
sentiment was less selfish it would be mon
commendable. It was only after realizinj
that the financial interests of the South an
likely to be greatly advanced by an expan
sioc policy that we find the Democrats
politicians of the South shifting their po
sitioa. They are afraid the intelligent
business men of this section will be awaken
ed 10 the fact that moJern Democracy ii
incapab'e and impractical. They realizes
that the expansion sentiment at the Soutl
was alrea ?y large and constantly increas
ing. Hence, we find them struggling U
get in the lead of the procession that is
moving on in support of expansion and it:
the endorsement of the McKinley policy
A great many Democrats in Virginia
now begin to realize that the election ma?
chinery in the State is not in honest
hands. When Republ'cans began to make
such a charge it was boldly denied. Now,
since Democrats are being cheated by the
Ring, the Republican charges of fiaud are
not so rudely discredited.
The Atlanta Constitution says: "The man
who cannot perceive the hand of Provi?
dence in our accidental occupation of the
Philippines will be unable to see it in any
of the large movements which have
changed the face and character of the
world." This is the opinion of an ex?
treme Southern Democratic paper. About
one year ago in an editorial, "It May Be
Destiny," we advanced a similar opinion,
and a number of our Democratic friends
were disposed to laugh at us. They can
now laugh at the Atlanta Constitution.

THE SOUTH AND EXPANSION.
A Leading Southern Newspaper Admits
Tbat Its Section Will Benefit From
Savannah "News," (Dem.)]
Some of the thoughts thrown out at the
cotton convention at Atlanta are calcu
: lated to create the impression that th(
South lias a big interest in tbe Philippines

evident tbat the lime is rapidly approach

? purpose of all of them is to control tin
; trade of that great empire. England alont

others propose to monopolize the trade o

If this country is to share in the trad(
of China it must be in a position to do so

I try most deeply interested in the trade o
the far East on account of the products o:
1 her cotton mills. It would seem to be th(
" interest of the South, therefore, that thii
) country should pursue a pobcy respecting
j the Philippines that would not only insun
t to it the trade of these islands, but alst
give it a strong hold on the trade of China
In this connection the need of the Nica
ragua Canal was spoken of at I he Atlanti
j convention. Assuming that we are right
in the view that the South is going tc
manufacture her cotton Into cotton fabric
and send the products of her mills to for
' I eign markets?especially the markets ol
the far East?then the Nicaragua Canal is
of vastly more importance to her than to
the North. Southern newspapers have
sometimes doubted the statesmanship of
Senator Morgan, of Alabama, but the
developments are showing that he has
about the longest head of all of the South?
ern meu in Congress. He lias been, and
still is, a strong advocate of the immediate
construction of the Nicaragua Canal and of
the policy of holding on to the Philippine
Islands?at least, of retaining such a grip
on the islands as will give their trade to us
and enable us to get our fair share of the
trade of China.
THE DUBLIN FUSILEERS.
A History of the Regiment Which Lost
Heavily at Dundee.
The Dublin fusileere, who charged on
the right Hank and lost four killed and
forty-one wounded in the late fight at Dun?
dee, have, under variouB names, a record
dating far back in tbe last century. Its
first battalion, late the One Hundred and
Second, was long known aa the Madras J
European regiment?the oldest regiment
of whites in India. Give, the conqueror
of India, served in it as an ensign. It
afterward fought under him at Arcot and
Plassy, and during a century of fighting
the jungles weie strewn with its saeletons.
In the war of the Indian mutiny it was
satirically known as the "sweet lambs"
and had part in the capture of Cawnpore
and relief of Lucknow. It was brought to
England for the first time in 18G8. The
fusileers' Second battalion, late the One
Hundred and Third regiment, known as
the "old toughs," was originally formed in
1661 to garrison Bombay, the dowry of
Catherine of Braganza, queen-elect of King
Charles II. As the Bombay European
regiment it fought under Clive. In this
country it also had active part in Indian
warfare and contributed to the defeat of
the shiks at the battle of Goozerat, in
1849. In 1870, its two hundred and ninth
year of service, it was brought to England.
In 1882, in accordance with new military
arrangements, the Madras and Bombay
regiments, or One Hundred and Second
and One Hundred and Third, the "sweet
lambs" and "old toughs," became respec
t ively the First and Second battalions of
the Royal Dublin fusileers. There was no ;
Bpecial reason why such a distinctively
Irish name should be given them save that
England wished to retain or propogate the
false impression that her soldiers of Irish
birth are numerous as ever, or that she
desired to facilitate the enlistment of
Irishmen for service in distent India, wise?
ly judging that the further bellicose Celts
were from their native land the better for
her own interests.
Dublin fusileers pick up sundry recruits
in the Irish metropolis, albeit it ia a city
patriotic even to Anglapbobism, but the
names of its ollicers who were shot at Ta
lana hill do not arford an index to the
Irish character of the corps; Captain Wei
don, killed, and Captains Lowndes and
Dibley, Lieutenants Perrean and Genge,
wounded, are certainly not representative
of any well-known Irish, or even Anglo
Irish, families. The Irish landlords, pinch?
ed by the abolition of rack-rents and indig?
nant at what they consider their unjust
and ungrateful treatment by the English
government, are ceasing to supply ma?
terial for English army officers. The dash?
ing Charley O'Malleys and Harry Lorre
quers will soon become a practically ex?
In like manner of Dublin fusileers two
other old Indian regiments, the One Hun?
dred and First and the One Hundred and
Fourth Infantry,' respectively the Royal
Bengal fusileers and the Bengal fusileers,
were brought from abroad some thirty
years ago and made the First and Second
battalions of another nominally Irish regi?
ment, called the Muster fusileerB. The
first of th( e, Clive's old regiment, organ?
ized by him in 1756, were nicknamed the
"dirty shirts" on account of their unfinished
toilets?a la the Irish brigade at Cremona
?during a conflict, a century later, at
Delhi. The Eecond, organized in 1837,
also fought in the Indian mutiny and had
part, a dozen years ago, in the English
land grab in Bunnah. The Munster
fusileers are reported as forming part of
the English forces in South Africa, but as
yet they have not been beard of in any

There is an old story which illustrates
the position of the honest Democrat who
is trying to support the Democratic party
of today :
A Lancaster County Dutchman once
came to a Philadelphia portrait painter
with a request that he paint a picture of
his father. Very well, said the artist, have
the old gentleman come in when next in
town and I will give him a sitting. The
Dutchman replied : "He gant do dot; he
isdait." "Oh, well, then, you have a
photograph of him ?"
"Mo. I don't got no fottograf of him
"Well, how do you expect me to paint
the portrait of your father when I cannot
' see him, and have nothing to give me an
' idea of his appearance?"
"Veil," be replied, "I dinked maybe ol
1 dolt you aboud him you gan baint him
"All right," said the artist, "describe
"Veil, my fadder was not so dall und
not so short, he vas not fat und not sc
^ din," and so the honest fellow proceeded
to describe his lather as he recalled him.
The artist undertook to paint the picture
' and in due course it is completed, and tin
^ Lanraster County man comes in to view
the results of the artist's efforts. As the
c.uivus is disclosed, he gazes long and
reverently upon the picture of his departed
parent. Then he feelingly remarked:
t "Yah, dot is mine fadder ! Mine faddei
vat I loafed so much?but ach Himmel!
. Fadder, how you haf changed."
f The political portrait of the Democratic
party today bears the same striking re?
semblance to the old organization which
we were once proud to follow.

The November Meteors.
Those who hope to see the heavens lit
up by a liery rain of shooting stars within
a fortnight are likely to be disappointed,
for on the nights?or, rather, the wee
9111a' hours of the morning?when the
chance of experiencing a repetition of the
great shower of 1833 is the greatest, the
moon is full. November 13, 14, 15 and
ft! are the critical dates, and the moon is
full on the 17th. However, if the spleudor
of the star shower of 1899 is in any way a
repetition of the marvelous sight witnessed
in 1833 those who stay up after midnight
may be rewarded for their pains, despite
The shower of stars looked for is called
the Leonid shower, since the meteors
seem to radiate from the constellation
Leo. The remnants of a greater cometic
mass, the small fragments that are burned
up when entering the earth's atmosphere,
are strewn along an enormous stretch of
orbit, but the main mass is bunched to?
gether within a certain area which the
earth encounters every thirty-three years.
A9 this loose aggregation is not by any
means limited in space, the earth encount?
ers the vanguard a year before and the
rearguard a year after the main mass is
met with. Europe saw a fine shower con?
sequently in 1799, America in 1833 and
Europe again had the honor in 186G. This
year it is our turn to face the heavens at
the propitious moment, a number having
been seen last year, but with no such fre?
quency as to suggest a shower. As it does
not require a very large fragment to pio
duce the effect of a shooting star, and as
there are millions and millions of frag?
ments in the cometic train or trail, the
chance for a shower is not unfavorable.
Periodicity of the meteor swarms early
attracteg the notice of scientific men, bat
it was at Yale that the similarity of the
swarms of 1799 and 1833 gave rise to the '
belief that the showers were caused by the |
earth meeting a mass of meteors that
moved in and along a common orbit, with?
in a period of about thirty-three years.
The next shower, predicted by Professor
Newton, of New Haven, confirmed this
view, and the behavior of the swarm led
to the belief that it w;m the remains of a
comet, the behavior of liiela's comet about
this time doing much to strengthen tiie
cometary theory. 'This comet within a
period of six years wap seen to divide in
two in 1840 and in 1852 its disintegration
was so much further advanced that since
that time it has not been seen.
Curiously enough Ihelu was reported as
being visible to the naked eye at Santiago,
Chile, on Sunday, but this, as might have
been expected, has turned out to bean
errror. The probabilities are that Biela
has become a mere trail of meteoric dust
such as that we are to encounter in two
weekp, all that is left of a thirty-three-year
comet. Whatever of mystery as to origin
and cause is inherent in the problem the
trained methods of today should soon re?
solve, since to the eye bus been added the
iuerrant record of the camara, and what
escapes the observer himself is caught by
the watchful plate.
