McKinley Suspends a Law which he was
Sworn to Enforce.
On the 4th day of September, 1S99, a
cabinet meetiue was called to pass upon
an important subject. Large numbers of
Chinese and Japanese laborers have for
years gone annually to the Philippines.
In fact a large part of the labor of the
islands is done by them. A ship load
had come into Manila bay under con
tract with one of the corporations ex
ploiting the industries of the island.
Otis refused them admission and tele
graphed the president for orders. The
result of the cabinet meeting was the
suspension of the Chinese exclusion law
so far as the port of Manila is concerned.
Since that time and until April of this
year 17,000 Chinese and 33,000 Japanese
laborers were booked for Manila from
which point they come without hin
drance to this country. Those figures are
official and are taken from the report of
the commissioner of labor. Foreigners
wishing to come to this country report to
our consul at home" and it is from these
reports these figures are obtained. From
this number 400 Japanese women weavers
displaced that number of Americans in
one town in Massachusetts. 800 labor
ers displaced that number of Ameri
can laborers as section hands on roads
out of Portland, Oregon. One inevita
ble result of imperialism must be the
nullifying of the Geary law including
Chinese and Japanese laborers and the
forcing of American labor to a level with
t'.iese people. This Geary law expires in
1902 any way. If it remains a dead letter
it will, of course, not be reenacted. Mr.
Republican, how do you like this?
The Constitutional Amendment.
The amendment to the state constitu
tion which will be voted upon in Novem
ber providing for an increas: in the mem
bership of the supreme court should be
defeated. In June we gave reasons why
this amendment should be defeated. We
wish now briefly to refer to the same sub
ject again. The courts now have too much
power and are too far removed from tile
people. The appellate court is better for
the people than the supreme court, but
it is unnecessary. A large part of the
business of the higher courts is reversing
cases decided against corporations and
for the individual in the district court.
One case in Sumner county has been ap
pealed three times. Each time the dis
trict court gave a judgment of about
$3ooo against the Frisco railroad to an
employe for the loss of an arm. The de
cision is just; but the supreme court
sends it back for a new trial until the
man shall be worn out and accept one
fourth of the amount or less. Make it
impossible for the higher courts to spend
their time in defeating justice in this
way. Make the decisions of the district
court final in a larger number of cases.
Keep the administration of justice nearer
the people. Decrease rather than in
crease all legal business. It will be
much easier to increase than to decrease
the number of judges of the supreme
court. We give also this week an edito
rial from the Commoner upon the same
t subject. This is a matter which should
be given more attention than it has been.
Defeat the amendment Do not let the
corporations gain another advantage.
Cattle shippers and raisers, how do you
like the hundred pound rate? When the
railroads attempted to put that rate in
effect during Leedy's time, do you re
member what he and Boyle did to them?
But as soon as Stanley got in office the 100
pound rate was put back. What effort
Stanley made to stop it'
That's a mean trick the Republicans
y.iyed on French & Hitchcock in giving
0. C. Knowles the job of embalming tLe
corp-e of the McHanna Teddy terrible
club.
Press dispatches say that I. P. Camp
bell is to be on the new railroad commis
ion th- Republicans are to give us if
Stanley is elected.

WAR AND CAUSE OP LIBERTY.
Kinsas Educator Thinks Spain Should be
Left Notbln
Special D spatch to the Globe- Democrat.
Topeka, Kan., June 6. At the meeting
of the National Teachers' association to
be held at Washington next month an
address will be made by Win. Stryker,
state auperintendent of public instruc
tion for Kansas. Superintendent Stryk
ar stated today that he would devote his
address to the educational influences of
the present war, and would advocate the
acquisition by the United States of every
Spanish possession.
I am in favor, said Mr. Stryker, of car
rying the torch of liberty to the utter
most parts of the earth peaceably if we
can, but forcibly where humanity de
mands it. As much as I deplore the
blowing up of the Maine and the death
of those gallant seamen, I look upon that
dastardly act of Spanish treachery as a
blessing iH disguise. It was the shock
needed to start us on our proper course,
and, once started, our people will never
turn back. Every Spanish possession
must be ours, and civilization must be
carried not only to those islands, but to
the countries adjacent.
The above is being used quite exten
sively by Republican speakers and in
other ways over the county as an evi
dence that we have flopped on this ex
pansion question since 1S93 when this
was reported to have been uttered. That
the above did appear in the Globe-Democrat
there is no doubt. That we were
then as now as patriotic and desirous of
our government doing all in its power to
put an end to oppression and wrong in
the Spanish possessions as any Republi
can is also true. We believed then and
believe now that a grand opportunity
was offered in Cuba, in Porto Rica, and
in the Philippines for this great Republic
to extend its trade, its public school sys
tem and all of its free institutions, the
love of liberty and everything for which
our flag stands not only to those islands
but by a noble and disinterested policy
to all the world and especially to the
countries adjacent to those islands. Had
not greed for gold, which dominates
those who control the Republican party,
overcome all of the higher, nobler, bet
ter sentiments the policy which humani
ty and justice dictates would long since
given us more of trade, more of Ameri
can language and institutions, more of
substantial advantage financially, polit
ically, morally and in every desirable
way than we will now ever get. News
paper interviews are not always absolute
ly correct. We st:nd now for what we
have always stood, the broadest possible
extension of the best American ideas and
institutions. We stand for liberty,
equality and justice whether in North
Carolina or in the Philippines. Two
wrongs never made a right. We stand
for the rights of free government, of free
speech and cf liberty everywhere on
earth and demand that our government
abandon its present 16th ceutury method
of extending our influence and trade
abroad and adopt a 20th century method;
that is, adopt the golden rule "Do unto
other's as ye would that they should do
to you" instead ot the gold rule "Do
your neighbor or he will do you" which
is the policy now of the Republican par
ty both at home and abroad.
We favor expansion rather than impe
rialism; we favor moral suasion rather
than bruteiorce; we favor extension of
trade and influence but not war and
bloodshed. We honor the flag and ad
mire American bravery and manhood as
shown by our soldiers wherever they
have gone but would save them the need
less sacrifice they are now called upon to
make. We have no word of censure or
blame but rather admiration and praise
for the brave boys who have answered
their country's call and are now doing
their duty regardless of personal beliefs
by obeying the orders of their superiors.
Our criticism is upon those living in ease
and luxurv at home who have forced this
administration into this unholy and need
less war against a people struggling for
liberty and who never did them a wrong
and all that they may the better exploit
labor at home and in these would be pos
sessions; that they may further increase
their ill-gotten gains by further class
legislation. We would devote the money
now being expended in this war to the
reclaiming of that immense arid area
upon the eastern slope of the Rockies
making habitable and populous an area
larger and with infinitely greater possi
bilities than any tropical island or group
of islands.
If oar Republican friends will produce
any other quotation from us of any date
we shall be pleased to answer their de
mand that we define our position upon it.
The complete poll of the Republican
nominees for the legislature shows that
Burton is far in the lead of Baker and
will control the legislative caucus.
Republicans, do you want J. Rats Bur
ton for U. S. senator? Is not an honest
Bryan man better than a dishonest Re
publican?
Vote for Lawrence, Dinsmore and Si
mons and you vote for J. Rats Burton-
just investigate his record.

I was a sufferer from scrofula from
birth. My eyes were so affected that I was
almost blind for days at a time. My neck
began to swell so that I could not breathe
freely. Medicines failed to do me any good
until I began taking Hood'i Sarsaparilla.
Today I have excellent health." Miss Krr

"I was troubled with scrofula and came
near losing my eyesight. For four months
I could not see to d anything. After tak
ing two bottles of Hood's SarsaparDla I
could see to walk around the house and
when I had taken eight bottles I could see
as well as I ever could." Srsii A. Hah

Shall We Abolish the Court of Appeals?
At the November election the question
will be submitted, of amending our con
stitution, increasing the number of
judges of the supreme court from three,
as it is now, to seven. If this amend
ment is adopted, then the court of ap
peals, which expires by limitation in
January next, w ill be abolished, and in
lieu of the present supreme court and
the court of appeals, we will have a su
preme court of seven judges.
The proposed amendment to the con
stitution provides that if the amendment
is adopted, the governor shall, as soon as
practicable, after the second Monday in
January next appoint four judges who
shall hold their office until the second
Monday in January 1903. That at the
election of 1902 five judges shall be
elected; one of whom shall hold his
office for two years, one for four years
and three for six years.
According to this amendment, the
election of 1902 will determine the polit
ical complexion of the supreme court for
tlie succeeding four years. If this elec
tion in the odd year results the same as
every odd year election since 1S90, the
amendment will result in ti'rnin the
court permanently to the Republicans
It would take at least six years before
sufficient changes could t;tke place to
change the political complexion ot the
court.
At the election of 1S9S Justice Alien, a
Populist, was defeated and Justice Smith,
a Republican, was elected if his stead.
This gave the court a Republican major
ity. Since that time the effort of the
legislature to regulate tke charges for
shipping stock and the court of visitation
law, have both been overthrown
Freights have advanced from fifteen to
twentv per cent, and the people are left
without means of redress. The people
who believe that the railway corporations
of the state should be controlled and
made amenable to law are at present
powerless and will continue to be if the
Republicans carry the legislature and
continue in control ot tlie supreme court
This amendment to the constitution is
not in the line of the reform advocated
by the Feople's Party, but is directly the
opposite. We nave constantly urged,
that equitable laws governing corpora
tions enacted by the legislature, could
only be maintained and put in force bv
our having control of the courts. This
amendment removes the court further
away from the people, and abolishes
what they procured by the establishment
of the court of appeals. The court of ap
peals come nearer to the people and is
in line wun me uieas. couienaea tor by
the People's Party. The term of office
is shorter and the judges are elected from
different division of the state and are
more nearly in touch with the people.
Whether the intention of the framers
of the proposed amendment to the con
stitution was to put the supreme court
under the control of the corporations of
the state or not, we uo. not know, but we
do know that no better method
could have been devised to accomplish
it. It would be much more in accord
with what the People's Party have been
advocating, to amend dur constitution.
by taking from the supreme court the
power it has arrogated to itself in over
riding the will of the legislature, and
confine its jurisdiction to what was orig
iaally intended both in the federal and
state constitutions, viz.; that the lunsdic
tion of the court extended only
to the interpretation of laws as
enacted by congress and by state legisla
tures, instead ot setting them aside.
Jefferson said, "The assumption of
power by the courts would ultimately
lead to despotism." If the almost un
limited extent to which government by
injunction is being carried and the as
sumption by the courts of guardianship
of congress and legislatures has not al
ready established a despotism it certainly
is tending that way.
There are no laws either federal or
state in operation which have met the
disapproval of the judges of the supreme
court of the United States or our state
supreme court. If the court wishes to
overturn the law, it can always find rea
sons for so doing, even if they are as so
phistical and lacking in merit as those
given for overturning the court of visita
tion. It behooves every citizen of this state,
no matter to what party he belongs, who
believes in government by the people
and for the people and that we ought to
have equitable regulations for the con
trol of corporations, to vote down this
proposed amendment Let us at least
preserve what we have, if w; are unable
to make further advance. The voting
down of this amendment to the constitu
tion means the permanent continuation
ot the court of appeals, it the court of
appeals is continued and the law amend
ed taking away the discretionary cower
of the supreme court to review the de
cisions of the court of appeals, bur svs-
tem will be one of the best yet devised.

Coming to the county in H70 with less
than $100.00 in money but with good
health and pluck and taking up the
claim upon which he Las ever since
lived he has been foremost in all
efforts to develop and build up the in

few months he was engaged as maoag

exposition in 1398, a position which he
filled with exceptional credit, he his
attended personally to his farm. No
man in the county knows tlie needs
and interests of the county better
He is an able speaker, is exceptionally
earnest and industrious and will rep
resent Sumner county and not any
foreign corporation. This nomination
came to him unsought as have all oth

ever held. Elect A. C Lambe and
Sumner county will have a represent

the principle that the will of the peo
