J The President, Congress and tlie people have Indorsed the system and the Supreme Court lias decided it to lie con- b Stltutionnl. i Tlie Democratic party nni!t continue its flcht against imperialism and earnestly endeavor to piecnt flic evils i which mut come from this abandonment of the principles on which our Government is founded. ;.

BAILEY OF TEXAS. reads It with a distinct Impression that the learned Justice who wrote the opinion did not believe in his own course of reasoning. It would have been more direct and manly, and would have commanded more respect for the court, to have flatly overruled the case of Loughborough vb, Blake than to have attempted a distinction between it and the case at bar. Which Is too flimsy to mislead any lawj er who is entitled to his license. GRAVER DANGERS AHEAD. The friends of the administration are congratulating themselves much too early, If they think the decision rcliees them from the embarrassment of con stitutional restiiction iu dealing with our new possessions. They will And the r Question of taxation one of the least among the perplexities of a colonial policy: and they can only carry out their plans aside other and graver constitutional provisions. FACE TO FACE WITH IMPERIALISM. The court Is apt to And that the next case will not furnish it with a subter fuge like the words "The United States" to which they can limit constitutional guarantees. They will be compelled booncr or later to meet the proposition as to whether'Congresscan enact laws for these Insular possessions which are con trary to the express inhibitions of the Constitution. If the court should decide that Congress cannot do this, the entire scheme of colonial government will fail from a lack of efficient force. On the other hand. If the court shall decide that. In dealing with these islands, Congress is not bound by direct and positive re strictions of its powers, that we have reached an end of 4he time-honored doc trine that this Government Is one of limited and enumerated powers, we are faee to face with the proposition, that the power of the American Congress over unrepresented islands is as absolute and untrammeled as the power of the Brit ish Parliament aver the colonics of Great Britain. The decision standing by itself will become the source of endless mtochier and confusion. , But its barm will not end there. Following so closely upon the decision in.the-lncome tax case it will inevitably convince the people that the Bapreme Court of the United States holds the laws of Congress), coactltaUoBal or j MnnntltTitlnnil. according as it deemajthem wise or anwiae. with that fellow, yon look like a W. BAILEY. REPUBLIC SPECIAL. Washington, May 28. I do not think that the decision of the United States Supreme Court In the Porto Rico cases removes the Issue from the domain of party contention. The decision is certainly bad enough, but It is not so bad as the administra tion papers arc claiming. It does not, as I have won it claimed, establish the doc trine that the power of Congress, In dealing with these new possessions, Is Independent of all constitutional limita tions. Indeed, the decision expressly negatives that contention and reaches its remarkable conclusion that the Forakcr law is constitutional by holding that these new possessions are not a part of the United States within the rule of uni formity prescribed by the Constitution for the levy of Imposts, duties and ex cises. RECORD FOR' WEAKNESS. Of all the weak arguments that ever emanated from a great court, the at tempt to save the Foraker act from the rule laid down by Chief Justice Mar shall in the celebrated case of Lough borough vs. Blake, the opinion rendered by Mr. Justice Brown must take the lirst place. It is so Inconclusive and so strained as to leave every lawyer who for governing these islands by setting bunch of waste paper." MISSOURI MEN MEET AT NEW YORK DINNER.

Son ot that State who ai non residents of the Metrop olis and live within walking distance ot each other greeted friends whom they have not met since the) left their nathe roll. It was a representative Katlierln? of men In all walks of life, and they sreetnd i-nth other with a cordiality which bespoke well for the society which was launched. The ballroom of the Wnllorf-Atorlt was brilliantly Illuminated and decorated In honor of the eent. Gnu Thomas, Tfinxtninolnr. Mr. Augustus Thomas acted as toTstmns ter of the ceremonies He explained the purpose of the assemblage and declared that If Ohio, North Carolina and othr States had any license to hac a society In New York, there wa3 no re-ison wh Mis souri should not hae one. Missouri, he said, was the birthplace of the glnrickey, and that of Itself was sufllclent reaon why they should have a society. He dnelt upon the virtues of the Missouri mule, without which no war could be successfully carried on, and said that while other States could boast ot their camasback ducks and other things, Missouri could brag of her mules.

To Burton Thompson, Secretary, Missouri Society, New York: I cannot express how deeply I regret my Inability to attend the Mis souri dinner, to be given in New York this evening'. It Missourians will show the bad taste to leave the state of their na tivity or their adoption, and settle else where, I know ot no better selection for a home than the Metropolis of the coun try, which furnishes such great' oppor tunities for the employment of their en ergies and'the exercise ot their talents.

Missourians at home are pleased to learn, nlthough J oil have left the borders of the grand old State, that you still cher ish a filial affection for Its scenes and Its people, and propose to keep alive and manifest that feeling by the formation of a Missouri Society In New York. I ap- predate fully the compliment you pay me in Inviting me to be your guest at jour first dinner, and vou need no assurance to convince vou that nothing short of Im perative duty at home prevents me from being with jou. Imperative Datlea at Home. The movement Inaugurated several years ago for the celebration of the centennial of the Louisiana Purchase, and which, after months of discussion, assumed the shnpo of an International Exposition, Is Just now taking definite form. As I am Its President, my absence from home would cause a delay In the work of organ ization, which the short time at our dis posal will not permit. The Executive Committee, whose duty It will be to select a site, will be named this evening. As I am 'ts ex-olflrlo chairman, I have ar ranged that we shall begin to-morrow to Inspect the sites We shall then Imme diately call to our assistance the first talent of the country. In order that we may make an Expo'ltlon. of which not only Missourians, but all Americans will be proud. We have secured a fund of tIGOCO.OOO. to which the State of Missouri has added Jl.000.000 for the State exhibit. The Amer ican Institute of Architects, the American Association' of Sculptors, the American Association of Landscape Architects, the American Association of Mural Painters, and the Architectural League of America all have terdered their services to nld us In making our Exposition a glorious suc cess. Plans of Great Moment. We shall spare neither money nor time to prepare a fitting celebrntlon of the grandest acquisition of territory recorded In history, and to properly commemorate an occurrence In the life of the American Republic which has made possible the glorious career of our country, and with out which neither the wealth, nor the grandeur, nor the liberty, which we value so high!, would have been possible. This Is a great undertaking upon which we have entered, and the nearer we ap proach Its consummation the grander Its proportions become and the worthier Its objects appear. The patriotic men and women who have devoted their time and thought to the enterprise are moved by no elflsh motives, and expect no reward other than the consciousness of duty per formed for the advancement of the entire country and for the promotion of the wel fare of humanity. evr York Mlaaonrlana Can Help, Your Missourians, located In the com mercial metropolis of the Western hem isphere, and In what will soon become. If It Is not now, the financial center of the world, can render great assistance In the work we have In hand. We expect the Empire State, as well as the New Eng land States, and every State and Territory In the Union, and every publication there of to be represented at the Louisiana Pur chase Exposition, which will be not onlv an epitome of the unparalleled develop ment of the Loufslana Territory for 100 ears past, but a portrait of the civiliza tion of all the ages and of the progress of the world. Our First Vice President, Mr. C. H. Spencer, will be with you this evening, and I bespeak for him as a representative citizen of Missouri, an honored official of Caatlaae, Facet Two, Colaaaa rive.

The,uggestIon of the Tower Grove Park site hap not boen taken teriouslv by the World's Talr authorities, because of the value of the Improvements that would have to be annihilated to locate the Fair there, and because of the unwillingness to use Uglily finished pub'.ic resorts like Tower Grove Park and Shaw's Garden far the Fair site.
