Many Facts and Utterances Indicate It—The People of Our Nation May Find Themselves Involved in Foreign Complications Before They Realize that the Compact has Been Se cretly Made—lt is Time for Americans to Be on Their Guard. Baltimore Sun. There is a widespread apprehension that the McKiuley administration, from the outbreak of the war with Spain through a long series of secret transactions to the present time, has been entangling itself and, so far as it can do so, entangling the United States by a "friendly understanding" with the British government on a number of subjects. The Democratic party of Ohio has given positive expression to this belief by declaring in its platform that there is " a secret and vicious alliance be tween England and the Republican administration whereby this nation may become involved in war with for eign nations." Of course the framcrs of that platform did not mean to as sert that this " secret and vicious alli ance" is of a formal character, reduced to any form of writing that can con stitutionally bind this country. That, of course, is out of the question. What they meant to charge, and what the country at large seriously fears to be true, is that the administration at Washington has gone to the full ex tent of its discretionary power in giv ing verbal assurances and entering into unwritten but none the less spe cific understandings with the admin istration at London affecting our pol icy in the far East and possibly in other parts of the world. The surface indications all point strongly to the conclusion that there is such a tacit agreement and concert of action be tween the executive branches of our government and the Queen's govern ment to which neither Congress nor the American people is a consenting party. The danger is that events may at any time flow from this secret under standing between the McKinley and Salisbury cabinets which may make it difficult, if not impossible, for this nation to avoid being drawn into the complicated web of rival European ambitions in Asia. And once we are drawn into that web it is certain that sooner or later we shall find ourselves compelled to side with one or other of the contending European nations and support the partnership wiih our men, our ships and our money. It is, therefore, no light or trifling matter for the American people. They have a clear right to ask and to have a plain answer to the question. To what extent has the McKinley admin istration departed from the historic foreign policy of our country and en tered into understandings and obliga tions with the English government involving mutual support in the far East or elsewhere? We do not forget that Secretary Hay, by way of replying to the Ohio Democratic platform, wrote to Colonel Dick and publicly declared that " no alliance exists or is in contemplation" and that" none has been suggested." But that does not cover the case. It may be quite true, as he says, that " it has uever entered into the mind of the President or of any member of the government to forsake under any in ducement the wise precept and ex ample of the fathers which forbade entangling alliances with European powers." That merely excludes the idea of an actual, formal alliance. Yet the President and his advisers may have entered into such " friendly understandings" and tacit agreements as in their practical operation and consequences may lead this nation into "entangling alliances" and in volve it in great wars to support them. Unfortunately for Secretary Hay's disclaimer, there has been a continu ous chain of occurrences for the past two years which tend to discredit it. Many British statesmen of the highest rank, including several members of Salisbury government, have delivered speeches in which they have not only advocated an alliance with this coun try but have spoken as if such an alli ance, informal yet effective, already existed. As long ago as May, 1898, Mr. Chamberlain spoke at Birming ham about the English and American flags " waving together over an Anglo- Saxon alliance," and declared that "at the present time these two great nations understood each other better than they have ever done," &c. More pointedly still, Mr. Chamberlain de clared in a speech at Leicester on No vember 30 of last year that Great Britain's actiou toward us in the Spanish war had " placed our relations in an admirable position." And he went on to say: " The uuion—the al liance, if you please—the understand "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall Where they May." ing between these two great nations is indeed a guarantee of the peace of the world." This was no mere expression of a desire for such an alliance or un derstanding, but a square assumption that it already existed. Forseeing that the term "alliance" was too posi tive (in view of the necessity for rati fication by the American Senate), Mr. Chamberlain explained his use of it as follows: " I used the word 'alliance,' but it matters little whether we hare an alliance committed to paper or an understanding which exists in the minds of the statesmen of the respect ive countries." That is exactly what the American people, with good reason, suspect has been arrived at—"an understanding which exists in the minds of the statesmen of the respective coun tries;" that is, in the minds of Presi dent McKinlev, Secretary Hay and their colleagues on this side, and in the minds of Lord Salisbury, Secretary Chamberlain and their colleagues on that side of the water. Mr. Chamber lain's words have never been repudi ated by Lord Salisbury, and while his public utterance of them was criti cised by the British press as " indis creet" and " ill-advised," their senti ment has been endorsed with remark able unanimity. As for lack of re sponse on this side, this is Presiden tial year. Republican leaders are necessarily speaking softly on this ten der subject of the "understanding" which, according to Mr. Chamberlain, "exists in the minds of the statesmen of the respective countries." More than one member of the McKinley cabinet, however, is credited by com mon report with having privately ex pressed sentiments entirely consistent with Mr. Chamberlain's famous an nouncement. One leading representative at least of the McKinley administration has publicly echoed Mr. Chamberlain's speech. We refer to Senator Cush man K. Davis, chairman of the Senate committee on Foreign Affairs—a post that has always given the utterances of its occupant an almost official character—and who, speaking at St. Paul, Minn., July 27,1898, said : "It was not till very recently that Great Britain and the United States looked each other in the face with any sign of recognition of their political rela tionship. It is well for them, for civ ilization, for national independence and for personal freedom that they have begun to do so." Continuing in this strain, Senator Davis went on to speak of the " isolation of England from the other States of Europe," and the heretofore isolation of the United States. He then pointed out their parallel interests and declared that "the United States must become an efficient element in the Asiatic situa tion, or must abstain from any partic ipation in iL" Such talk clearly means co-operative action with Great Britain in Asia, and hence antagonism to other powers there, or it has no meaning. Mr. Davis himself felt this to be the case, for he said: "It may be objected ihat all this is without precedent So it is, but all great hu man evolutions must precede prece dents in order to create them." Much plainer and more vigorous were Senator Davis's words to an in terviewer in Paris, who reported him to the London Mail on December 13, 1898, as saying: " Not only do I fa vor an understanding with Great Britain, but I favor a treaty of triple alliance, including the United States, Great Britain and Japan, for the pro tection of all their interests north of the equator. The rest of the woTld would have for us a wholesome fear synonymous with respect." In this interview, which seems never to have been questioned, the Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Af fairs committee distinctly declared for an alliance, and with a view to inspir ing " the rest of the world" with fear —an international state of affairs which would almost inevitably lead to war. The outward actions of the ad minis tration, which speak louder than words, confirm this report. In the Samoan affair, in the " open door" ne gotiations with China, in the Nicara guan treaty episode and in the treat ment of the Boer appeal for mediation, the whole course of the administra tion, so far as we know it, has been precisely what it would have been if the " understanding in the minds of the statesmen of the respective coun tries" spoken by Mr. Chamberlain had the practical effect of a formal treaty of alliance. This is, in truth, the gravest aspect of the McKinley policy of Asiatic ad venture. No one can say how far it is going to lead us into the labyrinth of old world politics nor what it tnay cost us in lives and treasure to get out of it with honor or to stay in it with credit. But everyone can see that someone in authority at Washington has already given encouragement to OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, APRIL 27, 1900. tlie British imperialists and jingoes to believe that we are arm in artn with them for a grand Anglo Saxon coat trailing promenade in the far East. The American people may well be alarmed at this outlook. Not because they are hostile to Great Britain in the East or elsewhere, nor because they are averse to friendly relations with her, as with all other nations, so long as American honor and interests are not threatened by them. But they are decidedly opposed to the abandonment of the old American policy so clearly defined in Washing ton's farewell address. They still have faith in Washington's wisdom in ad vising them to have with foreign na tions "as little political connection as possible;" to steer their course entire ly clear of the interests of Europe and not to " implicate ourselves by arti ficial ties in the ordinary vicissitudes of her politics or the ordinary combi nations and collisions of her friend ships or enmities." Hence in the coming national campaign one of the largest questions that will have to be answered will be that which Washing ton put in those memorable words, "why quit our own to stand upon for eign ground? Why, by interweaving our destiny with any part of Europe, entangle our peace and prosperity in the toils of European ambition, rival ship, interest, humor or caprice?" This is the great Asiatic riddle for the champions of the imperial policy in the Philippines and elsewhere to answer. Why exchange our absolute independence as a nation for an inter national partnership with Great Britain or any other foreign country? Jerry Simpson's New Catechism. Who was tlie author of the Declara tion of Independence? Answer—Thomas Jefferson. Who destroyed that declaration? William McKinley. Who overcame the money power and destroyed the United States bank? Andrew Jackson. Who turned the United States Treasury over to the national banks and gave one of them the use of f 10,- 000,000 without interest? William McKinley. Who destroyed slavery in the United States? . Abraham Lincoln. Who re-established it by protecting it in our i«land domain? William McKinley. Who promulgated the Monroe doc trine? James Monroe. Who destroyed the Monroe doctrine? William McKinley. Who declared that the United States should have no entangling for eign alliances? George Washington. Who is trying to mix up the poli tics of the old world by a war for greed, gold and glory. William McKiuley. Who discovered the Philippine Is lands? A. Jeremiah Beveridge. Who discovered Aguinaldo? Admiral Dewey. Who discovered the sultan of Sulu? William McKinley. Who Discovered McKinley? Mark Hanna. Who discovered Mark Hanna? The devil. What is the difference betwenu King George's war against the Ameri can colonies and Queen Victoria's war against the Dutch in South Africa? There isn't any. What is the difference between Queen Victoria's war in South Africa and McKinley's war in the Philip pines? No difference. A single acre of Washington timber, recently measured by the Division of Forestry, contained 218,690 feet B. M. of red fir, 11,000 feet of hemlock, and 6,000 feet of cedar; making a total stand of 236,690 feet. The smallest fir on the acre was three feet in diameter, and the largest eight feet. The height of the forest approximated 300 feet. The hemlock was scaled down to 20 inches in diameter, and had it been scaled to 12 or 14 iuches, as customary in the East, the stand would have been several thousand feet greater, this acre was measured near Wilkeson, Wash., about 20 miles from Tacoma. The average stand per acre for 131 acres measured by the same party, near Buckley, in the same county, was 74,402 feet of red fir, 30,105 feet of hemlock, 5,000 feet of cedar, 2,175 feet of spruce, and 593 feet of white fir, a total stand of 112,276 feet. In these measurements no trees less than two feet in diameter were scaled. No allowance, however, was made in the above calculation for cull. The 131 acres were taken in various parts of a township and represent with fair accuracy the stand throughout the Washington Timber. township. The significance of these figures is apparent when it is remem bered that 10,000 feet per acre is con sidered a heavy stand in all lumber regions east of the Mississippi. TAYLOR'S FIGHT AGAINST LAW. The highest Kentucky court has af firmed the legality of Gov. Beckham's election to the governorship of Kcn tucky, and has declared Taylor a usurper. The decision was unnni i mous, two Republican members of the jcourt voting favorably to it. Since the very beginning of this unhappy controversy, Taylor has constantly as serted his desire for a peaceful solu tion of it. He has suggested compro mises which, as fast as acceded to by the Democrats, he has repudiated. He has appointed representatives to at tend conferences and then dishonor ably refused to abide by theagteement of his own supporters. More than once he has said that if the Kentucky court decided against him, lie would not take the case higher. Now he an nounces that it shall go to the Su premo Court of the United States, he in the meantime holding the office which he has usurped. The Taylor lawyers have thirty days to complete their appeal to the Federal court, and there is little doubt but they will avail themselves of all the time. There will then be a further delay in the hearing, and in the decision by the court, so that it is probably safe to es timate that the dilatory methods adopted by this political pirate will keep him in an office to which he was not elected for from sixty to ninety days jet to come. Indeed there is grave reason to suspect that his true purpose, and that of the Republican party, which is backing him, is to so prolong this controversy as to give the Republicans who have control of the federal machinery an excuse for throw ing out the vote of Kentucky in the next Presidents! election. The Re publicans of the Slate, by their servile acquiesce in all of Taylor's lawless acts, and by their announced determi nation to send him as a delegate to Philadelphia, and to renominate him next fall, have assumed responsibility for his course. President MqKinley, though lacking courage to openly de clare his position, has in moro than oue way manifested a purpose to be guided by partisanship only. While all this is going on in political circles, the officers of the law are drawing closer and closer the net which brings Taylor and the assassin of Gov. Goebel into close proximity. The Democrats of the State of Kentucky deserve the very highest credit for their self-re straint and patience during these try ing times. Cost of Living at Ms nils. Lots of people think that in the tropics all you have to do when you waut breakfast is to go out and shake a banana tree, or knock ofl a cocoanut. Living isn't quite that cheap, how ever, in the Philippines, as is shown by the following list of prices which an army officer at Manila, writing to a friend in Washington City, says are the prevailing m.irket rate there uow. Irish potatoes are 13 a bushel; on ions, $lO a bushel; cabbage brings 20 cents a head; tomatoes are 10 cents a dozen and radishes 10 cents a bunch; canned peas are 40 cents a quart; fresh cucumbers 15 and 20 cents apiece; sirloin is 70 cents a pound; pork chops 35 cents and " round" beef steak, 70, 50 and 40 cents, ac cording to the cut; eggs are 48 cents a dozen; mutton chops cost 40 cents a pound. Even the things that one wouldexpect to be cheap there are high. Oranges are 50 cents a dozen; rice 12 cents a pound; common fish, such as perch and silver fish, 25 cents a pound; a fat duck brings 90 cents; a dressed fowl from 60 cents to 90 cents; Japanese chestnuts are 29 cents a quart; navy beans, $5 a bushel —about double the price in this country; coffee is fair at 25 cents a pound; sweet potatoes ate $3 a bushel. Just a Marc's Nest. A correspondent of a Chicago news paper finds peculiar significance in the fact that the call for the Demo cratic National Convention does not mention the financial issue at any point. This is the merest mare's nest. The call reads: "All Democratic conservative reform citizens of the United States, irrespective cf past po litical associations and differences who can unite with us in an effort for pure, economical and constitutional govern ment, and who favor the republic and oppose the empire, are cordially in vited to join us in sending delegates to the convention." The only change from the historic form of the call is to be found in the insertion of the word " reform" after conservative, and the phrase " who favor the republic and oppose the empire." It is never cus tomary to outline issues in the call for the convention. SEASONABLE HINTS REGARDINGTHE CARE AND CUL TURE OF FLOWERS. Superintendent Roberts, of Point Defiance Park, in an Informal Talk to Students, Explains Practical Side of Art of Successful Gardening —Training Trees, Flowers, Fruits and Vege tables. Tacoma News. Taking a fine rose bu.-h in his hand Superintendent Roberts of Point Defi ance park, told the children and visit ors of the Willard school a few facts about rose pruning and culture that will assist everyone to cultivate beau tiful roses. He talked also of the in fluence of trees aod flower gardens and fruits and vegetables and their helpfulness in the home and for the children. The Jacqueminot rose, he said, and all the hybrids, or perpetuals, need free pruning and flower more freely under that treatment. Tea roses do not like it. Never plant roses without a good foundation. There should be two feet of manure, lime, brickbats and old mortar; theu surface soil on top, and the roses, with proper care, will flourish for twenty-five years- Manure should not be applied on the surface. If it is, the plant sends up its rootlets to get the nourishment, and when tlie gardener comes he digs about the plant and cuts off these tiny roots; and the owner asks in dis may : " What is the matter with my rose bush?" Never round the beds up. Keep them level, perhaps two inches lower than the surface. Do not water too frequently, but when you do, give them a good drink. If roses are given such a foundation as suggested, a thorough soaking every Saturday night ought to suffice. Mr. Roberts was surprised to see the frequent waterings which some people give their roses in Tacoma. They give them no rest, he said. Ashes arc good for roses and should be sprinkled on the ground freely. He spoke of the importance of beau tifying surroundings for the home, and said: "We are living in a coun try where we can grow more varieties than are grown in any other part of the United States. When home is made beautiful it creates a love for it in the child. Boj's make better men and girls make better women. Every child should have a garden spot of bis own." Mr. Roberts spoke of tlie import ance of planting trees, both for plea sure and profit—shade trees and fruit trees. He said: " Don't plant too close. A tree must have room to grow and spread. It must have good soil, water and training.'* He gave a few practical suggestions on the cultivation of strawberries, gooseberries and currants. Speaking of propagating from cut tiugs, he said a clip should never be placed in the ground upright, but at an angle; otherwise it " can't pull." The children looked intently as Mr. Roberts snipped off a cutting with his pruning shears and showed them " how to do it." "Always press the ground over leeds with the foot," he said, " never with the rake or hoe." Passing on to speak of vegetables, he said: " Lettuce you can have, every day of the year oa Puget Sound green lettuce, summer lettuce and winter lettuce. Cucumbers can be grown in a barrel and put in any odd corner. Be careful to eliminate waste paper and dilapidated tin cans." (In cidentally he mentioned that it re quires two men to gather up the tin cans and rubbish after a picnic in Point Defiance park.) Mr. Roberts threw out some useful hints on pansies and poppies. The former need a rich soil, the latter re quire only that the seed shall be scat tered on the ground. "Always keep a box full of seeds. This was the way in which Winthrop, the first Governor of Massachusetts, established the school garden. In Ta cuma one has been started at the Sherman school, and we must have one for the Willard school. You have plants in Point Defiance Park to day that are the offspring of plants grown in 1650." Mr. Roberts urged the children to love nature. ".You will be healthy and live long if you do," he promised. "Care must be given to the plants and tlowcrs. Keep at the children all the time. Don't force them; encour age them. Always pull the weeds; don't let anything grow wild. "To have a lawn you must have no dandelions. Don't use much manure on the surface, always have slaked lime; it kills the worms. Tobacco chips in water, with a little saltpeter, makes a cheap and effective spray for the aphis and lice. Spray it on the trees underneath; never on top. To kill the black aphis on cherries, add a little sulphur. "We must study the book of na ture," said Mr. Roberts, in closing his interesting talk; " it is our birthright." TOWN LOTS FOR POKER CHIPS. How Mr*. Dewey May Inherit a Fortune from Her First Husband's Sporting Habits. Deeds for town lots were used as poker chips in the "boom" days of Wichita, Kan. It was then that Gen. Hazen, the first husband of Admiral Dewey's present wite, won fifty or more lots, fully a third of the town as it then existed. Mrs. Dewey now wants to sell the lots, but is having trouble to prove title. Harvey Fleming, now editor of the Kansas City Journal, and Charles A. Edwards, correspondent of the Hous ton Post, were in Wichita in the early 'Bos and knew about the town-lot game. Mr. Fleming said: " Gen. Hazen was in Wichita taking observations. The town was filled with real estate agents, boomers and speculators. Gen. Hazen was a 'lucky' poker player and was regarded as a dangerous opponent at the week ly sittings. " The game in which the town lots were won was a wonder. It was five handed, the players being Gen. Ha zen, Dave Payne, ' (Oklahoma' Harry Hill, Capt. Crouch and Dave Ban croft. Payne, Hill and Crouch were all interested in the opening for settle ment of Oklahoma. " Cash was played for when the game began, as (Jen. Ha/en was averse to putting up real money against the fictitious values of town lots. After Gen. Hazcn had secured most of the cash in sight the other players, to continue the game, reached an agree* ment of an upset price on all town lots. This was satisfactory to Gen. Hazen. "The game went on. First one man would own an entire section of the city, and then another would hold title. "A' stack of blues' would often rep resent an entire sub-division. Gen. Hazen was a great hand at 'bluffing.' A i ickpot came around, with only Gen. Hazen, • Oklahoma' Harry Hill and Dave Bancroft playing. Bancroft opened. Hazen drew three cards, Hill one, and Bancroft 'stood pat.' " Bancroft bet a few city lots and Hill dropped out. Gen. Hazen raised the bet and Bancroft, believing he was bluffing, tilted it again. Gen. Hazen saw the raise and went him a few lots better. After another raise Bancroft called and Gen. Hazen laid down four kings or queens, I don't re member which. Bancroft had a jack full. In this way Gen. Hazen became the owner of the fifty town lots. " Nearly every one who participated in this game is dead. Gapt. Crouch was shot in Oklahoma shortly after the territory was opened;' Oklahoma' Harry Hill was kicked in the head by a mule in Texas and died; Oen. Ha zen is dead. I don't know how Payne died, and do not know that Dave Ban croft is in the land of the living. " When the bottom dropped out of the Wichita boom the values of prop erty rapidly decressed. Property is now going up, and if Mrs. Dewey can prove title she has a fortune there." Ex-Prtsidcnt Harrison and Others on Tariff. Ex-President Harrison's opinion, expressed March 4,1900, when asked about the Porto Rico tariff bill: " I regard the bill as a most serious departure from the right principles." Opinion of the late Guy V. Henry, first Governor-General of Porto Rico, expressed May 18,1899: " The great crying need now is an open market for the two great pro ducts of the island—sugar and tobacco. Now that the Spanish market is closed, the people look to the United Btates." Opinion of Gen. Lew Wallace, ex pressed at Indianapolis March 9: " When the President recommended free trade with Porto Rico, that was William McKinley speaking from his heart. When he urged Congressmen to eat their utterances and vote for a duty on the industries of the island going and coming, that was Mark Hanna, the great Ohio suspect." OASTOniA. Basra the Yw Haw MwikNwM Counting Them All In. Boston Transcript Georgie's mother insisted upon his repeating the prayer of childhood. He startad sleepily, requiring prompt ing at the beginning of every line. Drowsiness had nearly won the mas tery by the time that he had obedient ly got as far as " my soul to take." " God bless" prompted his moth er. Georgie had a long list of relatives. There was a flutter of his sleep-laden lids as he lumped them all together: "God bless the whole shooting match!" And he was asleep at last. WHOLE NUMBER 2,091. ACCIDENT AND HEALTH INBURANCE. The Fidelity Mutual Aid Association WILL PAY YOU If dlssbled by an accident •3D a* SIOO m ui on lb.
