NEW NEWS OF YESTERDAY
How the Nation Trusted
McKinley in the Spanish War
By Holland.

consequences of the war with Spain,

and the indepedenco of Cuba.
were to write the history of McKin
iley's administration I should with era
phasis call attention to one incident
that is without precedent in the history
Chauncey M. Depew some years ago,
while he was still serving as United
States Senator from New York. I sslc
cd him what the incident was to which
he referred and he replied:
'T refer to the appropriation by Con
gress of fifty million dollars just after
the war with Spain began, an appnv
priation which committed the disposal
of the entire amount to the discretion
of the President.
"I took some pains at the time to
look up the history of appropriations
by Congress and by parliamentary bod
ies and I was unable to find a single in
stance where an appropriation of any
considerable amount had been made
with specifying the purpose for which
The people of
But if 1
this country and Great Britain have al
ways been jeaious of their exclusive j
rigiit to state for what purposes
appropriations are made, forbidding al
ways the diversion of the appropria
tions to any other purpose than that
set forth in the grant.
"But here was an appropriation of
fifty million dollars, one of the largest
ever made by Congress, with no other
designation of its purpose than that the
expenditure of the funds should be ab
solutely and exclusively at the discre
tion of the President.
thinking, this incident
furnishes one of the strongest of
proofs of the fundamental belief of
the American people in the per

fidence in McKinley, for he had taken
as many members of Congress as he
could conveniently summon to a con
ference Into hfs confidence. I don 11
think the history of the White House
can recall any
gathering than were the two or three
which took place in that building at
the request of McKinley at the time
of the Spanish War.
"What took place at those confer
has never been fully revealed
and never will he. Nor was It known
until after the war with Spain was
ended why McKinley deemed the situ
ation so grave that he felt justified in
appealing to the entire Congress and
to American citizens.
"There sat with him men of pre
eminent position alb Democrats and of
