Administration ollicials are taken
all aback by Judge Lochren's decision
that the constitution does not extend,
ex propno vigore, to Porto Rico and the
new possessions. The president and
attorney general expscted, or at least
feared such a decision in the future,
but they have been straining every
nerve to prevent its being handed down
until after the election. Although
they protested that the passage of the
Porto Rican bill was necessary to en
able a test case to be brought before
legislating for the Philippines, they are
now taking every step possible to pre
vent a case reaching the supreme court
before it adjourns for the summer,
which it will do in two or three weeks.
Attorney General Griggs has sought to
minimize the effect of the decision by
declaring it is only a "dictum". "Judge
Lochren's announcement," said he, "has
no weight whatever, as it does not re
late to the case under discuBBion. The
question at issue in the case was
whether a state of war existed and
whether a military tribunal had the
right to try for the crime of murder.
We did not even argue the question of
the Constitution, and dismissed it as
irrelevant and immaterial." It will be
remembered however, that the decision
of the supreme court rendered in the
Dred Scott case that the Missouri Com

a "dictum" not necessary to the case at
issue. Judge Lochren, by the way,
though appointed to office by Cleveland
is an expansionist, indorses the policy
of President McKinley and voted for
him in 1896.
Mistakes in the Porto Rican act con
tinue to crop up. The latest is that the
construed by the treasury depart
ment, puts an additional penalty on
Europeans who desire to trade with the
island via United States ports. If a
European sends goods direct to Porto
Rico from the old world, he pays the
Dingley rates if he sends them to New
York for shipment to Porto Rico he
must pay the Dingley rates and fifteen
per cent additional. That is to say, the
republican party in its wisdom has di
rectly discriminated against this coun
try as a port of call between Europe
and Porto Rico and to encourage direct
lines from Europe and Porto Rico. Of
1B all very well for the truBts
that wish to control the Porto Rican
market, for their protection is in
creased 15 per cent over the already
monumental Dingley rates. Whether
they had part in drawing the verbiage
of the bill with the idea of getting this
additional duty or whether it was an
unexpected stroke of fortune for them,
cannot be said. In either case, it is
hard on the Poto RicanB.
If action on the Nlcaraguan Canal Is

fight to the floor of the senate, hoping
thata8ufilclent number of friends of the
canal will stand to their colors to com
pel its being taken up even against the
desires of the president, Of course,
McKinley could kill the measure at any
time, if he dare to do so, but be will
undoubtedly prefer to stay in the back
ground and oppose it in such a w.y
that he can change front in a moment
if necessary. He does not propose to
be caught in any more "plain duty"
he can help it. Hence, the
conclusion seems inevitable that the
