YE ADMIRAL'S BOOM.
Nothing that has thus tar oc
curred in the preliminary cam
paign canvass, stirred things up
more radically or more univer
sally than did the announcement
made last week that the hero of
Manilla had suddenly discovered
"it was his duty to seek a Presi
dential nomination." There was
considerable conjecture at first as
to which of the two great parties
the doughty Admiral wa
ious to lead, or whether he'plan
ned to construct a little personal
party of his own for campaigning
purposes; but the Admiral on
Friday last set these conjectures
at rest by announcing that he
was a Democrat, "or at least,"
to quote his own woids, "I came
near voting for Cleveland once."
This announcement from the
man who only a few short
months ago claimed he knew
nothing of politics, and under no
circumstances could be induced
to accept a political nomination,
gave rise to a well-grounded
suspicion that Admiral George
Dewey was being used as a tool
by some political manipulators,
who were perhaps, not exactly
satisfied with the direction in
which public sentiment was
plainly drifting. So palpable
did this aspect of the affair seem,
that it took less than forty-eight
hours for the leading editorial
opinion of the country, without
regard to party lines, to give ex- of
pression to it in no uncertain w
language. The clearly expressed 1
desire of the Admiral to be con- i'
sidered by the National Demo -1
dential possibility, would indi -1
cate that the object was to injure, t *
it possible, the chances of Mr. j
Bryan, the chosen leader of the j
who form the Democratic ! t -
a Presi -1
In au interview on Saturday j
last the Admiral used the hack
neyed statement, "I ant in the
hands of my friends," but if pub
lic opinion already expressed, be
be taken as a criterion, he
is certainly mistaken in the
character of the individuals who
induced him to air his Presi
dential aspiiations, especially
this particular time. They are
no friends of his. as they have I
already robbed him of much of
the respect and honor so freely
accorded him by the American |
people. They are his enemies,
and we repeat, would simply use
him as a tool to serve their own
ends. It is difficult to ascertain
whether they are professedly Re
publican or Democratic. They
might, with equal reasonable
ness, be either. Were they Re
publicans the attempt to foist the
Admiral upon the Democratic
National Convention would, of
course, be with the intent to
create a division in the senti
ment which is so wonderfully
crystallizing the Democratic
Under such conditions, this
might be considered politics.
Were these "friends,
ever, "professedly" Democrats,
the conditions would be entirely
different. The intent would be
just as plain, and would be, in a
measure, the same. But coming
from such a source it would be
and is the cowardly effort of
certain individuals, who fear to
openly attempt to stem the Dem
ocratic tidal wave, to thus un
derhandedly, if possible, weaken
Under such conditions the af
fair would not be politics, but
But no matter from what
source the incentive which led
Admiral George Dewey to take
this ill advised step came, the
effect has been the same as far,
at least, as the Democratic party
is concerned. It has but made
1 stronger the determination of the
\ P^fty to llOllllliate clS their baillief
j bearer William Tennings Bryan.
! ^ ° ^
it has done more than this—it
has forced from men who were
considered at least lukewarm in
his support and in the support of
the avowed principles of the
party, pledges of fealty that
might not have been drawn from
them at this stage of the cam
paign in any other way.
The hero of Manilla has suf
fered in prestige from the epi
sode. For this he can but thank
his professed friends. The Dem
ocratic party has not in the least
suffered from it, nor has that

the intent of the party more
clearly and emphatically defined.

elected a woman mayor of the

women of the city that gambling,
which was rampant, should be
suppressed, and the streets of the
city should be improved and
cleaned as they had never been
before. The newly-elected
oress surrounded herself with ap
pointees of her own sex, but
somehow the promised reforms
failed to materalize, and last

What Imperialism Really Means.
Now that the policy of the McKinley
administration with regard to our newly
acquired possessions has been definitely
fixed by its attitude on the Porto Rican
tariff bill, the country can see how radi
cal a departure it'is from the principles
which have hitherto governed all our
acquisitions of territory,
leaders admit that Porto Rico is to be
dealt with not on exceptional grounds
intended to be applied to that island
only, but as a deliberate precedent to be
applied later to the Philippines,
frankly avowed purpose of the Republi
can party is to commit the United States
to the new and absolutely revolutionary
policy of acquiring new territory, vast in
area and population, to which the flag is
to be carried without the Constitution.
We are henceforward to buy with our
money and conquer with our armies and
navies any number of islands in Asiatic
or Other waters, peopled, as Mr.
says, by "half-dressed vagabonds,"
or, in the language of Speaker Hender
son, by "millions of savages."
bought and conquered peoples we are to
hold not as fellow-citizens, with rights of
representation in our government, but
vassals, subjects of our power, but not
sharers in our liberties,
vassal millions we are to impose such
laws and levy such taxes as we see fit
and compel them to obey and pay them
by the same rule of the strongest under
which India is ruled by Great Britain,
Algeria by Prance and the Khanates of
Central Asia by Russia.
