Outside the pulpits of the world, the era of universal peace seems a long ways off. If Tom Keed congratulated Mr. McKinley, the letter or telegram containing it was suppressed. Republican speakers will be careful not to say anything about "Teddy" being a man oi' his word. Since "Jiilly" Mason got back into the McKinley coop he has been devoting himself ex clusively to a.thinking part. The republican bosses are already finding out the "buck ing" qualities of "Teddy," and the campaign hasn't got fairly started. Our Caesar doth begin to take to imperial ways of living. The newly-fitted McKinley residence,at Canton, has a gold trimmed bath tub. The steady growth of Bryan sentiment may be judged when a paper like the Philadelphia Ledger says the election of Bryan is not an impossibility. Boss Hanna and Mr. Mc Kinley are excusable for laugh ing over the controversy of the little fish about the authorship of this or that plank of the re publican platform. "Teddy" will doubtless pro vide himself with a good sub stantial backbone, not made of chocolate eclair, for the use of his running mate on trying occasions. When .peace is concluded in 'China, it is to be hoped that it will contain a clause providing foi* the repeal of the "no check-ee, no washee" require ment. There are plenty of proofs that the Philippine war is really over. For instance, a fresh batch of troops were sent to General McArthur on the transport Thomas last Sunday. Hon. David B. Hill of N. Y., possesses attributes which would make him a very strong candidate for vice preisdent in the localities where strength will be needed. That investigation of Cuban finances,by a senate committee, isn't breaking any records for speed. The republicans do not wish it to be completed until after the election. The British commanders complained bitterly of the plague of women at Capetown 'Pretty soon the allied forces .are likely to complain more or less earnestly of the plague of -missionaries in China. Cable dispatches tell us that a German-American has at tempted to rob Oora Paul's capitol of some of its hard earned gold. They don't say whether he was a plain thief or a British patriot. Mr. McKinley's removal of the Capital of the U. S. to Can ton, Ohio, may be inconvenient for others, but will doubtless be a good thing for Canton, where Mr. McKinley has prop erty and business interests. TimeB believes the« gang of conscienceless money chancers back of the Mckinley administration, vh6 would plunder "our new possessions" in the tnanipulation of latter's public franchises and offices, in the guise of Godliness and patriotism and this is one of the reasons why we believe the American people ought to vote, to, in due time, give Cuban and the Philippine peoples their freedom. The Republican platform's handling of the Philippine question and the ship-subsidy job shows that the bosses of that boss-ridden party are afraid to show their hands up on either. If the Sultan of Turkey doesn't pay those missionary claims before the campaign is over, the administration will be likely to make a naval dem onstration against Turkey as a method of vote-getting. Senator Hoar says it would take an earthquake to induce McKinley to call an extra session just before the election. Hoar may be old and wander ing, but he can recognize a fact when he sees one, all the same. If "the man who built the Oregon" and other government contractors, are to have booms for vice president, what's the matter with the man who built the President—Mark Hanna,so please you, gentlemen! Step up, Mark! Don'i be bashful. Congressman Amos Cum mings of New York, said the other day: "I am going to Kansas City to see Bryan nom inated, and I am going to see him elected just as sure as I live to see election day." Amos, old boy, you have a level head. If the southern states are to be disfranchised because their voting strength does not come up to the quota for their pre sent congressmen, why should small states like Nevada,Rhode Island,and others be permitted to retain altogether dispropor tionate representation both in the House and the Senate? Think of this! It is a thousand pities from a newspaper point of view, that the Boer war, the Chinese imbroglio, the St. Louis strike and the Philadelphia conven tion should all coincide in point of time. Had things been arranged a little more judici ously, they might have been made to furnish news for the entire summer. A North Carolina negro preacher has seen a great light. He declared that the negro was not fit to vote and that the best thing to do was to take the ballot from him. This was at Asheville, and it required the police to protect the preacher from the violence of a negro mob. He isn't the first man to get into danger by telling the truth. How the first republican platform, that of 1856, contrasts with its manifesto in 1900. The one denounced "those twin relics of barbarism—slavery and polygamy." The other commends the acquisition of the Philippines and the treaty with the Sultan of Sulu which guarantees the continuance of both "relics," and pays the salary of the harem keeper of the Sultan. We note considerable talk in some quarters about America being the only power that can save China, etc. This is prob ably intended to prepare the public mind for action on the part of the administration. It may be just as well to remark at this stage of the game that the safety of Chiua isn't worth enough to the American people to justify a war with any great power. 1UIBS The president seems to have gone to war with China, as he did with the Philippines,solely! by his own sweet will, without asking the consent of congress. in whose hands- alone the war making power is lodged by the constitution. The question of' the right and justice of the war is not material. The pre-1 sident has no legal power to declare it and should call con gress in session at once to con sider the matter. But he will not do it. Why should the United States take sides with England against Russia in the Orient? Russia was our friend when England was our enemy. Rus sia was the first country to accept Secretary's Hay's open door proposition and guarantee our citizens equal rights with her own. Why should we fly to the rescue of England, en gaged as she is in the same old work she attempted over here a century and a quarter ago, and protect her Asiatic in terests for her? The critical point in the next election is New York, which is absolutely necessary to both parties. But Roosevelt as nominee for governor would stand a better chance of carry ing that state, than as nominee for vice paesident, with a gov ernor selected by Piatt and sworn not to enforce the franchise taxation law. This is the real milk in the cocoar nut. Piatt wants the franchise tax law killed, and has to get Roosevelt out of the way to do it. There is a very good reason why the vice president is now a-days seldom nominated to succeed the president. It is because, since the war, there has been but one vice president whom the democrats could nominate, while the republi cans have always chosen men of no importance—mere money bags for the most part—to take the lower post. None of them measured up to the office. A really good man can still show that the vice presidency is not strictly ornamental. Arctic Funmakersr There is at least one new thing under the sun which shines upon the sea of circus tents, and that is Captain Woodward's really famous and only school of trained Ataska Sea Lions and Seals, which this season form one of the ex clusive and unique features among the thousand and one attractions of the Consolidated Great Adam Forepaugh and Sells Brothers' menageries, circuses and Hippodromes, to pitch their canvases in Wab peton, on Tuesday, July 13th. When the exceedingly wild and timid nature of these strange Arctic amphibiai is considered, coupled with the fact that tfeey are provided with flippers oaly to supply the place of haads and feet, their performances are absolutely marvelons and trench closely upon the in credible. That soch necessarily clumsy creatures on land have been successfully clumsy crea tures on land have been suc cessfully taught to drill, pitch, catch, play upon different musical instru merits, sing: and imitate many other human acts and arts almost surpasses- be lief, but that th$y do so i» at attested by the- press of New York, in which, city they con tinuously drew big and d'ejijght ed crowds.
