Once in a while some envious
contemporary tries to discredit
The Republican's telegraphic
service. We acknowledge that
this service is not as complete
as that of the New York Herald
or the London Times, but when
a matter of importance arises
readers of The Republican are
not kept waiting for the news.
This paper has the exclusive
franchise in this region for the
Associated Press morning dis-
. patches, and the agent at Los
Angeles has instructions to keep
the wire hot when news cf great
importance is at hand. That ex
plains why The Repviblican 'was
the first paper in this region to
print the news of the sinking of
the Maine. That is why The Re
publican had an exclusive story
of Dewey's memorable victory
in Manila bay. That is why The
Republican was on the streets
hours ahead of any paper here
.- with an account of the sinking
of Ccrvcra's fleet. And yester
day morning The Republican
was the only paper in Arizona to
give a complete report of the at
tack of the Filipinos on the
. 'American forces at Manila. It
is true that the 'Los Angele3
Times that arrived yesterday i
had a rumor of a convict at Ma
nila, but it was accompanied by
a statement that no official con
firmation of the report had been

contrary notwithstanding.
The democratic legislature has e3
taolished a precedent which is
apt to plague it before the
session ends. The council cn
Saturday, through the ruling of a tem
porary chairman, decided that a ma
jority vote could accomplish what the
rules of this and all other parliament
any bodies declare can rightfully be ac
complished onlv by a two-thirds vote
The matter under discussion 'was the
concurrent resolution which originates!
in the house. providing for
sending a telegram of con
granulation to Senator-elect Clark
of Montana. The ardent free silver
men of the council desired to include
Senator Stewart of Nevada and in the
face of the council rules Mr. Hunt of
Gila county, who was temporarily in
the chair, damaged his reputation for
fairness by jamming it through. The
resolution went back 'to the house and
yesterday a substitute was offered
there by Mr. Adams of Yavapai calling
for fulsome telegrams to Clarke and
Stewart in which the belief was ex
pressed lhat their election would "be of
great assistance in correcting the
crime of '73 and returning to circula
tion gold and silver at a ratio of 16
to 1." In the house the adoption of
the resolution finally hinged upon the
question whether a two-thirds vote
vas indispensable, and the speaker
stood in" with the democratic
majority, thus permitting the
rules to go to smash. It is
bad enough to see the rules treated
in this way, but worse to think tha
if the resolution pass, and i't undoubt

fresh ridicule in Washington where
Stewart has for many years m'ade him
self the laughing stock by his efforts
to undo the crime of '73, and where.
for the next six years at least neither
Clarke nor Stewart nor any o'ther free
silverite will have a ghost of a chance
to do anything in the line of "19 to 1'
by reason of the sound money major

Friends in Pennsylvania there are a
few who shrink from the responsibil

placed upon us the resjonsibility of
civilizing and educating the people of

as a national duty which may bring
perplexities, embarrassments and ex

they were to take a vote on the general
proposition I should say that they

tion of the Philippine archipelago bv

must stay there and look after those
people until they are competent to take

Auditor Tinime Tells Something About
His Interesting Career.
"The new senator from Wisconsin
will be an honor to the state and a

foremost orators of the senate, for he
is known throughout the northwest as
an able speaker. He is a man of fino
personal appearance, polished manner.
and is highly cultivated intellectually.
"'Mr. Quarles is not a rich man, nor
a creature of corporations, and in that
respect his election to the senate was
a tribute to !his popularity, coming as
a verdict from the people in his favor.
It was not until last August that he
decided to become a candidate.
'He was raised among the people
who sent him to the senate. He taught
school as a young man at Kenosha to
obtain money to go to Ann Arbor to
college, and was at college when the
war broke out. He went to war as a
lieutenant in the Thirty-ninth Wiscon
sin, and came out a captain. He went
back to college, finished his education
and then took a law course. He then
returned to Kenosha to practice, and
was a partner of the famous Orson S.
Head. Subsequently his practice grew
so large he removed to Milwaukee.
"Mr. Quarles was elected district at
torney, mayor, assemi'ulyiman and then
state senator, and while in the senate
received a complimentary vote for
United States senator in the contest
between Matt. Carpenter and Keyes."

Never before in the history of our
wars has the army been refused fresh
beef delivered on foot. Under Sher
man, Grant, andi Sheridan cattle were
delivered at the front and were driven
along with the army, to be slaughtered
frcm day to day, at the points where
fresh beef was needed for food.
. The embalmed beef for our army in
this Spanish war, and said to be an ex
periment, was never heard of before in
any war or any country.
The ordinary beef sold for home con
sumption is not always so treated, ex
cept when the packing house finds a
large supply on hand that can be kept.
. But the beef sent to our soldiers
was loaded and saturated with chemi
cals various acids which made them
sick, filled the men's systems with poi
son, unfitting them for lighting or
campaign work. Those who were in
camp relieved of the hardships and ex
posures of marching under the tropical
sun suffered even more than the men
in the field.
Half a million pounds of this beef
came in on ship to (Porto Rico. The
soldiers were fifty miles awav in th

The London Daily News Intimates
that, in all .probability, England wiil
abrogate the Clayton-Buiwer treaty if
the United States desires to build tha
Nicaragua canal. We have no doubt
that this reflects English sentiment.
Fifty years ago, when the treaty was
signed, conditions were materially dif
ferent and the relat.ons between the
two countries rested upon feelings very
different from those now prevailing.
Then the relations were amicable, but
there was no love between the two
great Anglo-Saxon nations. Each
feared to give the other any advantage
no matter how small, and each feared
that a conflict would come sooner or
later. Now, however, both are well
aware of the fact that an Anglo-Saxon
alliance in sentiment is an accom
plished fact, and of wonderful power
as a peace factor, as other nations
have no desire to meet .the team in a
trial of strength.
Under these circumstances, what
benefits one benefits the other, and
England will, without doubt, be per
fectly willing to allow the United
States to 'build, own, control, and op
erate the canal if it passes through
Nicaragua. This, of course, she could
not do with the treaty in force, which
provides that neither England nor
America should exercise control over
it when built. It 'would appsar that if
nothing stands in the way but the ab
rogation cf the treaty, the canal is all
but an accomplished fact. Cincinnati
Cuban General Diaz does not wish to
hire any of his soldiers to the Ameri
can department governor, insisting
that the United States "should not in
terpose a labor scheme as a substitute
for the just demands of the Cuban sol

fectly plain.- Having done for the Cu
bans what they were unable to do for
themselves, the next thing we should
do is to pay them for it. Louisville
Tne senate by a majority of three
has ratified the treaty of Paris and to
ail intents ana purposes it is now
effective. It is a pity that ratification
should have been so long deferred.
Had the treaty been acted up;n within
a short time after its presentation to
the senate the situation in tli3 Philip
pines undoubtedly would be much
more reassuring. The insurgsnts have
been afforded time to procure arms
and to perfect their organization and
on the eve of ratification they struck
a blow which can result in nothing
less than their subjugation. It was
the policy of the administration to
demonstrate that the cession of the
archipelago to the United States would
be helpful to all the inhabitants. The
attack of the Filipinos upon the Amer
ican troops unquestionably saved the
treaty. Now the government will te
obliged to apply the iron hand, and th;
harder the better for all concerned if
we understand the situation correctly.
If General Otis can manage to get hold
of Aguinaldo you will ses the insur
gent movement go to pieces in short
We cannot wonder that the presi
dent has attempted to postpone the
Philippine settlement until the le
gal question can be examined and the
position in the islands investigated.
The commission appointed is a strong
one, and its services in the islands are
likely to be prolonged. But at the
same time we trust the senate will not
shrink from its r?spcnsibilitie3. We
do not ourselves feel much sympathy
with the Filipinos, who have shown
no signs as yet of capacity for self
government. But were the treaty not
ratmed they 'would t2 cast loose, to be
absorbed after a period of civil war
by some continental power, under
