for holding the next Republlc.fi r

Mr. Iletith wltli nil the onorgy of a

anil he Is as Insistent that Mr. Hoatli
must not be disturbed. Tills presents
nn Issue at once between tho presi

Is the real leader of thee Republican
party. Tho prosldent apparently for
gets that ho did not make up the
present national committee of the H
publican party, which wields the Iti-ll-.ience
and controls things until Its
successor is elected at the next na
lional Republican convention, but that

That will discredit Rcosevelt and at

The Panama deal is still a topic or
lolltlcnl discussion here, and tho Dem
ocrats are as dotermlned as over to
make It an Issue In the noxt cam
paign. It they do they will show up
;ne of the most stupendous outrages
over attempted by this government.
From the looks of things this will be
supplemented by niiftther attempt on
the part of this Republican administra
tion to grab San Domingo. The re
cent troubles down there have mado
things ripe for the deal that a few
men in this wintry have been trying
lor years to pull off. It Is not gener
ally known, but nevertheless it is llu
truth, that tho bonds of Ban Domingo,
the nrrrro republic to tho extent of
hundreds of thousands of dollars, aro
owned lu this country and are con
trolled by Senator Matt Quay of Pi v.
sylvanla and his copartners in tne
grafting game. If this government
takes over the island of San Domingo
thrse bond, which cost the purchas
ers about twenty -Ave cents on tho
dollar, will be worth par. Thoy, there
fore, will make some three hundred
per cent profit. The game is woith
tho candle. Look out for develop
ments In San Domingo.
Tho sugar trust Is again In full con
trol of congress, nnd is corrupting the
legislation now, as frequently In the
past. It dictates every move made bv
the Republicans In congress, Tho peo
plo do not know It, hut behind tho in
nocent proposition to tako a voto m
tho senate on tho Cuban reciprocity
bill, stalks tho sugar trust. Tho voto
on this bill will occur in tho senate,
under agreement, on December 1C. Tho
bill and treaty can not possibly tako
effect before tho "6th. day of Decem
ber, and probably not until many dayo
thereafter. Observe now tho reas-ons
why tho senate, taking Its cue from
the sugar trust, Is proceeding so leis
urely. Tho sugar trust agents aro
now In Cuba and have boon for tho
past two weeks, engaged In tho pur
