Tho Wur Department now dis
covers that it commissioned n

of Camp Thomas. If tho physi

If tho menibors of tho com
mittee will, in dealing with terri

common sense, fairness, aud a
desire to unite all classes in a
common labor for tho public
good, thoy will command the
support of thobo who live here,
and only nhk for good govern
ment. Ad vertieer.
This is just whet tho committee
lias been doing and is doing. Tho
Advertiser has placed all tho
stumbling blocks possible in tho
pathway of a new puity, but its
disposition to hedge aud ask for-gionei-8
will be considered. It is
about tiuio fjr our contemporary
Ecoiug that it is fighting a lost
cnuso to como around aud seek a
seat iu the band wagon.

Hon. Joseph Chamberlain in

tho influence of American patrio

President McKmloy was onco
called a ward politician, aud tho
"blocks of fiv" incident is now
sometimes recalled by hie oppo
nents. Had McKinley lived in
ilawaii, tho Only Ones would
havo considered him too much of
a "machine" politician to bo trust
ed, yet ho is proving ouo of tho
ablest statemen the country has
over had. Tho men who howl
about tho macliino aro always the
ones who aro angry because they
no loiig r letain tho support of
tho masses. Seth Low who head
ed tho Citizens Uniou "anti-ma
chino" movemont in gieater Now
York was, as Mayor of Brooklyn,
moro of a boss than Crokor or
l'latt. Before taking his seat as
mayor ho domandod tho resigna
tion of oviry city employee. Yet
when Low wanted to bo mayor
aud had au oye ou tho governor
ship with Pipsidontial possihili
ties, ho got a crowd of fiiouds to
gothur and shoii'ed "down with
tho maohino." Tho mauuer in
which tho sound citizttiis of Now
York saw tlnouh his scheme nnd
promptly snuffid tho gfimmeriug
candlo of his aspiration may vi II
bo marked with profit by thu local
lights who aro ynlling "iiihsheen,"
whon tho peopl gi't logollm with
a viow to carrying out popular
government m i popular govorn-
meat. The trouble with miui of
our friends is that tho people are
following tho wrong machine.
4VripiruntH foroll'ico find themselves
without support, and naturally
oiiougli try to mako tho public
think that popular opinion
amounts to nothing.
Almost -without exception the
opposition to tho roteution of tho
IMiilippiues by the I'liilcd States
comes from men who bIiow a lack
of confidence iu tho governing
capacity of their country. The
pessimist is Baying "wo can't take
caro of oursohes, why should wo
go further and soak moro trouble?"
In looking over tho history of
tho llopublic, tho mon who did
tho most to givo tho country its
present strength, wero not of tho
"can't bo dono" typo. Thoy were
strong men having confidenco in
tho pcoplo. Jefforsou took tho
initiativo and said "it must be
done." Had Lincoln proved as
woakkueed as thoso now howling
against tho horrors of expansion,
tho freedom of tho American ro
public would still be a misuomor.
Tho Amorican peoplo have thus
far in their history shown them
selves capablo of mooting the
omorgency of new probloms. "Why
should thoy slide back now beforo
tho Philippine bugaboo aud in
child liko simplicity hide from tho
responsibilities that face them?
Tho Philippines aro bound to
figuro iu tin United States foreign
policy whether tho flag is hauled
down or not. Haviug obtaiued
tho firnt right of possession by
conquest, tho Amoricans will not
allow Spain to mako any division
of tho islands without tho first
cousent of tho United States. Oue
plan of disposing of tho question
is to demand from Spaiu that all
countries shall havo greater freo
dom of trade in tho islruids and
also demand various governmental
reforms. Tho experience of past
demands regarding tho govern
ment iu Cuba ought to bo sufli
cent to warn tho United States
away from this proposition. Moro
trouble would bo found in keeping
Ho An straight, than could be oc
casi 'ii 'd by taking tho islands aud
governing them properly.
Th'-ro is also tho international
phaoe of tho present timo. Nearly
all tho Powors aro satisfied that
tlu- Philippines shall pas into
American hands. If a diviniou of
tho spoils is made, tho United
States shifts none of tho inter
national responsibility connected
with its interests in the Orient,
aud gives up a portion of the
source of revenue to defray addi
tional expense. To turn back now,
after sotting an oxample to tho
wot hi of fighting battles for tho
extension of freedom aud enlight
enment, would bo contrary to
every historical example which
the United States has set since tho
revolutionary war. It means a
shilly ehally wavering policy that
is a disgraco to tho forefathers of
tho nation, tho English speaking
raco and the age iu which wo live.
It is an announcement by the
4V.mcricun peoplo that they aro
afraid to tackle a problom from
which no other onlightened nation
of the globo would turn aside.
