The work of Congress has been performed
under conditions which, happily, are very
unusual. The members were elected when
William MoKInley won his second triumph.
Before they could assemble the President
hod been assassinated and Colonel Roose
velt succeeded to the presidency.
The work of Congress must be considered
not only In the light of the platform of the
Republican Convention, but also in the
light of subsequent events which have had
a remarkable effect upon the public mind
and which wrote the duty of Congress in
letters larger than those used by the plat
form makers In Philadelphia.
Moral Issues have often cut a greater fig
ure In the politics of the United States than
Issues of eold-blooded business. Moral Is
sues have, by the present Congress, been
practically Ignored. An examination of the
epitome of the doings of Congress, showing
the things that have been done, as well as
those that have not been done, will reveal
that Congress, on the great question of Cu
ban relief, which has stirred the country
from one" end to the other, has been recre
ant to ltsduty and has, left Cuba In a con
dition of bankruptcy which is likely to re
sult In untold evils to the administration.
There Is only one chance in a hundred
that Congress will relent at the last mo
ment and pass a bill granting tariff conces
sions to Cuba. There Is only one chance In
a thounacd that the Senate will ratify a re
ciprocity treaty with Cuba.
Thus. Ignoring everything that the late
President McKinley did to secure fair treat
ment for the struggling Republic, and
laughing to scorn the recommendaUons of
President Roosevelt, who has done every
thing In his power to carry out the wishes
of his predecessor. Congress will leave Cuba
stranded high and dry, a prey to the com
mercial temntatlons of other countries and
liable 'to drift away from us rather than to
come Into closer relations.

Events of the next twelve months will
demonstrate whether the bill which has
been passed by the Senate and will be ac
cepted by the House, providing for the Pan
ama Canal. If title can be given, and, it
not, for the Nicaragua Canal, will really
provide for a waterway across the Isthmus.
Responsibility !s left very largely In the
hands of President Roosevelt. He is to
judge whether the Panama title Is suffi
cient, and it Is bis duty to steer clear of
serious International complications on both
sides of the Atlantic which may threaten
the selection of the Panama route.
Congress has generally kept the pledges
made by the Republican National Conven
tion at Philadelphia. It has taken steps
looking to tho establishment of civil gov
ernment in the Philippines. It has re-enacted
the Chinese exclusion act. which expired
In May. It has repealed the war taxes.
But Congress has failed to redeem one of
the pledges that were very conspicuous In
the platform tIt has failed to enact any
trust legislation whatever. Laws for the
regulation of giant combinations of capital
that already seek to control Congress and
dictate to the President have not even got
out of committee in either house. That
there is need for legislation was shown
not only by the report of the Industrial
salon, but by the recommendations of
President Roosevelt, which were supported
by the most advanced thought in the coun
try. Congress has gone on the principle, "Let
and that we were In honor bound to afford
her relief, would lead Congress to make the
slightest concession In that direction. The
arguments In favor of reciprocity have all
' fallen on unheeding ears.
I Mr. McKinley was in favor of reciprocity
with all countries. In his last speech he
took the view that we must seek other and
greater markets, buying from other coun
tries the things which wo did not exclu
sively produce, and selling to these countries
our surplus.
But In the lexicon of the Fifty-seventh
Congress there Is no such word as "reciproc
ity." The party has gone back to where It
was in 1SSS. It has' made the portion of the
Dlngley bill providing for reciprocal com
mercial relations a dead letter, and It has
prepared to go before the people at the com
ing congressional elections on the platform
of "high tariff or bust."
How the Democrats are preparing to meet
them on this issue was shown at the meet
ing In New Tork Thursday night. How un
easy the Republicans are over the question
Is shown by their absolute refusal to per
mit tariff to be discussed in the Senate.
To the minds of most political observers
In Washington the campaign of 1904, of
which the campaign this fall will be mere
ly the preliminary skirmish, will be fought
on the lines of 1S92 tbe Democracy against
plutocracy, the people against the trusts,
the public interests against monopoly.
The attitude of the Senate with reference
to the reciprocity treaties negotiated by the
State Department under the Dlngley bill
Is inexplicable. These trestles were on a
line with the advanced policy of MqKInley,
who held that under them we could con
summate the commercial conquest of, the
Each treaty, standing alone, could have
been readily ratified, but It became neces
sary to negotiate several treaties and var
ious Interests at once combined. For in
stance, it would have been a perfectly
simple matter to have negotiated a re
ciprocity treaty with Argentina by which
all sorts of American goods would have
been admitted there at a lower duty than
goods of other countries In return for the
admission here of Argentine hides and wool
at similar reductions.
So, too, would It have been possible to
have ratified a treaty with France by which
American good3 would have gone Into
France at
