This 8trtttriifnt was mad hy
Senator Sn demoi-rat
troiu Missouri in Hpi'.'ikinu of
the attitude of his purty on
thequentioti of latif.vmtf t h
Pannnia canul treaty. He
continued: "I lflifv I would
he absolutely within the
lines of accuracy to sav, that
with poHisibly three or four
exceptions every dcmo-rntic
Senator heartily favors th
proposition to construct an
isthmian canal. Rut there is
d widespread belief, shared
hy many Senators, that, the
part taken by our govern
ment in the insurection or
revolution in "Panama was
not honorable and therefore
that the treaty itself is tinct
nred with dishonor. Wba.t
Senator Gorman is seeking
10 do, is to hay the Presi
dent and Secretary of State
turnisb the Senate; with the
facts showing the connection
of this government with the
transactions out of which the
republic or Panama has
grown. They insist upon hav
jog the facts that they may
be better enabled to deter
mine Intelligently and satis
factorily what their duty is
in the premises."
Senator Hale,', republican
from Maine, condemned the
course of the administration
although like Senator Hoar,
he will vote for the ratifica
tion of the treaty. He said:
"I do not like the situation
and am afraid it will involve
us in an expensive and profit
legs war, but I have seen no
way from the beginning, ex
cept to ratify the treaty and
make the best of it. Our gov
ernment moved rather rap
idly and with some prevision
wIipii the, insurrection broke
out."
Tberepublicansrealiaethat
it in in the power of tup dem
ocrats to prevent the ratifl
cnt'on of the' treaty, for even
when the two Senators from
Louisiana carry out the in
structions of their state leg
islature to vote for it, th re
publicans are still one vote
short. They wilfully misrepre
sent the democratic attitude
toward'the treaty in order
to discredit the party with
the peoplo. The democrats
want facts p.nd an open dis
cussion, while the republi
can Senators threaten tocon
tinne the consideration of the
treaty .in secret session; so
that the public will not hear
the criticism of the adminie
trntiou.

Advices from Colombia
show that the patriotism of
her citizens has been aroused
and that men, women and
boys are offering their servi

expedition against Panama.
Women and boys however,
are always loudest in 'their

with the ignorance of the U

to make war in which they
would get nothing but dvfent

this natural consequence of
its own act.

Oa' of th'1 funniest jf went
proceeding was held at Man
Chester a few days ago. The
cotton manufacturers held a
"mass meeting" and adop
fed a resolution strongly con
demning ' international cot
ton gambling," which they
hold responsible for all the
ills of life. The meeting also
"invited the government to
icceive a representative depu
tation with the object of urg
ing pleasures toprevent gam
tiling in cotton."
Those nice old EiglUb
grannies ttlio have' been lin
ing their pockets with mon
ney by getting American cot
ton at about the cost of pro-dii'-tion
are in great state of
mind now, because they tire
forcpd to pay what it is worth
and in their wrath suddenly
become converted to the ter
rible sin of "gambling in cot
ton." If they cm make the
world Helieve that "'gambling
in cotton," ani not a saiall
crop has put up the price,
they' may press it" down to n
lower figure. See?
Isn't it strange that the
conscience of these 'English
spinners was never aroused
against "gambling in cot
ton" -when they were paying
the farmers only five and six
cents a pound for their cotton?
