IPromlic of Chairman of Demo,
cratlc Congressional Committee
?' New York Press: June's thistles of
' treason will not bear figs of loyalty In
November. The time Is too short to
grift a grape upon a thorn. The chalr?r
man of the Democrat^ congressional
committee finds It advisable to pledgo

peace with Spain. But bis party's records
apeak louder' titan liis words.
If Mr. Xerr, aa reported In a Washington
dispatch to a New York paper,
means anything when he applies the
term , "silly pretense" lo the averment
that "Spanish Interest* will be enhanced
; . by the success of the Democratic party
in Conaress." he means that a Demo
I era tic majority In Congress* would sup-1
V port the administration In Its policy

would undoubtedly "enhance Spanish I

the proposition that a house divided i

for so executive to carry out a policy J

V eminent. That Is by Ignoring the legislative
body?ruling without it, as Bis- 1
marck did from 18C to 1866. But Bismarck
baa left It of record that he would ,
have blown out his brains had his Doll- i
I cy foiled. J?ls king: dreaded the scuf*
fold both for himselfvand his minister as
the consequence of Bismarck's course.
Such a course is impossible for an
American President. He must command
a majority in Congress or remain
throughout his terra an administrative
nullity save as to the mere routine of
r government It is certain, therefore,
that a Democratic house would "enhance"
"the interests of Spain" unless
It'supported the administration1 as loy.
ally as would a Republican house.
Would It do so? Mr. Kerr says it
would, though Messrs. Bryan. Bailey
and Cleveland have all said by implication
that it would not We know not

!ring voices with its mute eloquence. At
the first moment and on the only occasion
that the McKlnley administration
needed the support of Democrats In Congress
It was withheld In practical unanimity,
seriously broken only by the
5* action of a half dozen outgoing senators
who, their political careers being closed,
could afford to break with their party
and stand by the country.
From the .day, April 2C. when the war
I revenue bill was .reported to the house
to the day, June 10, when the confecft&r;
ence report passed the senate, the JDempr'V
ocratic party In Congress gave abso'
lutely no support to the conduct of the
. war. Nay, It resisted Its maintenance
far more stubbornly than did any Span^
lards of that time In which th^ victory
of Manila waa won. It fought dally,

tie*, and should have pfljwed both

cal object of Deraooratlc contention?the
3 abandonment of the war. Wars cannot
go on without revenue, and for six
i weeks this party obstructed the govI
ernraent's sources of revenue. But the
t\* actual political object was no better; in
I its craxed partisan rancor it was posJi
sibly worse. From the moment the bill

NEW YORK, Oct. 31.?A dispatch to
the Herald from Havana says: oi
Rear Admiral Sampson did not attend ^
the services In the Independent church
as he was advertised to do. This fact hi
has given a great deal of satisfaction to tt
Americans here who feared that his w
presence might be used to give a semiofficial
endorsement to an antl-C?athollc fr
meeting:. The 'bull fight and base ball at
game advertised for Sunday were vetoed ha
by the civil governor, ihe former owing e?
to the alleged fraudulent means used In Jj1,
advertising it and the latter because the H
license to play was not obtained. These co
are the official reasons given, but the
real rea.son wasr probably to. prevent
trouble with the soldiers and the fear of
a riot.

West Virginia Bar: A school of theology
seems to have been opened by one
of the circuit courts of the state. The
Intimate relation between the law and
the Gospel has now been recognised and
the court has therefore proceeded to instruct
the jury In the theology of the

Jury seems to have accepted the court's
theology, adopted Its creed, and pronounced
the accused n heretic and a
homicide. . If the case gets to the supreme
