With the exception of the Senate
feeling in this city is almost universally
against the Hay-Pauncefote canal sur
render. The IIouso of Representatives
is at least five to one against it and tlie
public is practically unanimous in its
opposition. The attitude of the Senate
is most peculiar and hard to under- I
stand. Senator Morgan of Alabama,
whose whole life has been devotid
to a constant warfare in favor o''
building the canal under American
gunB, now saysthatfortifications will be
of no use and favors the treaty. Ilis
is the most striking change of face
though there are other senators whose
new position iB scarcely less surprising.
A recent poll of the Senate showed a
two-thirdB vote for the treaty, but the
universal opposition of the-newspapers
of the country, democratic and repub
lican alike, is having it? effect and it is
quite probable thatenough may change
their mind to defea treaty. The news

cally admitted there that Lord
One lucky thing has developed here
within the past week and that is that
the ship subsidy bill, which proposed
to pay over fortunes to the wealthy
Atlantic liners, will be postponed until
next session that is until aftir thoelec
tion. The popular opposition has been
BO strong even to the substitute offered
by Mr. Grosvenor that some forty Re
publicans have declined to follow their
paity in supporting it, and it has been
therefore practically decided to let it go
over. It was somewhat difficult to ar
range for this as the ship line owners
refused at first to contribute to the Re
publican campaign fund this fall unless
they were given the money In the bill,
but it is probable that they will yield
to the inevitable and contribute, realiz
ing that a Republican victory this fall
will so intrench that party that its
members will risk the anger of their
constituencies. At present they are un
willing to go home and inform these
that they voted for a bill carrying 89,
000,000 in subsidies, largely to old and
worn out vessels.
The advocates of the bill refuse to
accept an amendment providing that
no ship shall receive subsidy unless it
carries one-half of its tonnage in
frolght, as this would furnish little
plunder to Mark Hanna's friends
although It would at least give to the
Blow freight carriers a share in tlie
plunder and might poBsibly have re
duced freight rates.
General Stone, U. S. V., who haB done

hen our army landed there," heBays,
"the firBt thing General Miles did was to
issue a proclamation declaring that we
came to offer them the blessingB of our
government." General Stone thinks th
it would now be bad faith to impose
duties. Said he "Can we afford to
break our solemn promise to theBe
people at the outset of our ruleV Shall
we give them three-quarters or Bome
other fraction of what is due them, and
that, not as a right, but as a concession
which the next Congress may revoke?
If the conscience of the nation could
consent to Buch an iniquity, it might
still be wise to consider that we may
have, any day. to defend that splendid
possession against a foreign foe, that it
is now the grand outpost and guard
over our coaft and commerce anb canal

occasion comes, if our dealings with

honesty, we might raise fifty thousand
fighting Porto Ricans to defend the

The large and increasing circulation
of The Iowa Homestead in this county
is a matter for congratulation to the
publishers and to good farming, for, of
all the papers of its class in the coun
try, it is easily the best and most help
ful. Its Special Farmers' Institute
editions, issued with the regular edition
the first week in each month, have been
for years the admiration of all practi
cal farmers. Written wholly by farm
ers, they are full of uctual experience,
and smell of the soil. We have been
fortunate enough this season to secure
terms for The Homestead and its Spec
ial Farmers' Institute Editions,together
with The Poultry Farmer and The
Farmers' Mutual Insurance Journal,
lour of the most valuable farm publi
cations in the country, that enable us to
oiler the four in connection witli our
own paper for S1.90 for the entire live,
one year. This is emphatically a good
thing, and no farmer in this county
should fail to take advantage of this
offer. For a large lino of thoroughly
practical farm reading nothing lias ever
been offered lel'ore that equals it,. A
county paper, a farm paper, a poultry
paper, a farm insurance paper and the
Special Farmers' Institute, all for $1.90.
Come in and order them.
