America* Labor Interests und the Home

velopment of Anglomania la Washington
Since March 4, 1893, on tho incom
ing of the present administration, both
the foreign and internal policy of the
country appears to have been formu
lated with a view to a consideration of
the interests of foreign countries rather
than of our own country. This has ap
peared not only in one instance, but in
many instances. Setting aside such lit
tle matters as the exclusion of China or
Japan tea from the White House kitch
cn and the exclusive uso of Ceylon tea,
because it is English, you know, wc

tariff measure formulated on English
free trade lines, without any regard or
consideration for the interests of Amer
ican labor or American industries. Hav
ing changed our system of currency to
conform with that of England, it was
only natural that the same model should
serve on which to fashion our methods
of revenue. The result, it has been
found, would have been insufficient to
supply an income equal to the expend
itures of our country. This also is Eng
We also have the suggestion made to
forestall the revenuo by an issue of
short term treasury bills. This method
of spending one's income before it is
earned is also of English origin.
The latest Anglomaniac development
that has emanated from Washington
this year has appeared in connection
with the Hawaiian muddle. It appears
that the first published report of the sec
retary of state on this
subject was shown
to and approved by the British embas
sador at Washington before it was hand
ed out for publication for the informa
tion of the American people. We thus
have a plain case of an act undertaken
by the United States government and
supposed to bo for the best interests of
tho United States and of tho American
people first submitted for tho consider
ation and approval of the representative
of a foreign country, and that country
which the report was made, while ser
vile flunkeydom was effusively display
ed to the representative of England, v/ho
had no earthly concern in the matter so
far as either the United States or the
Hawaiian Islands were concerned.
gross exhibitions
on the part of the
present Democratic administration, as
effusively and offensively displayed to
the American people. For other in
stances we need only examine careful
ly tho new tariff measure, formulated
on English free trade lines and designed
mostly to assist foreign trade at tho ex
pense of our own. The
terances of Benjamin Folsom, cousin
in-law of President Cleveland, that A\eie
made on our national birthday to the
acturers at Sheffield, are too sure
ly becoming realizations, and his con
gratulations to tho English manufac
turers were by no means out of place
fro»n his own standpoint, or that of his
or their party. There
are no words of congratulation for
American manufacturers or for Amer
ican laborers. They may condole with
one another while waiting for the co*V
gressional elections of 1804.
