As we must account for every Idle word, so
we must account for every idle silence.
In his Hartford speech Governor Mc-
Kinley says: "The Republican party in
vites the fullest discussion of its princi
ples and shirks no responsibility. Our
foreign policy, for the most part, during
the last two years, has fallen short of tbe
lofty standard of a century ago, and of
more recent times as well."
It were better for the Republican party
that the foreign policy of the past two
yejrs and of "other recent tunes as
well" should not be mentioned by a Re
publican leader. The present administra
tion has had to devote a large portion of
its attention for two years to undoing the
mischief accomplished or attempted by
Republican predecessors. The mischief
accomplished or attempted was directly
due to a kind of foreign policy directly at
variance with that of a century ago.
The government of the United States
entered into a compact with two mon
archies for usurpation and rule In the
kingdom of Samoa. This was a flagrant
violation of the American tradition of no
entangling alliances with European pow
ers. Grover Cleveland and Secretary
Gresham have had to seel: ways and
means of extricating tlie United States
from this political miscegenation.

Chicago limes-Herald.
The foregoing is quite apropos at this
day when the editor aud orators of the
Republican party are devoting so much
space and wind to reminiscences of a vig
orous foreign policy that existed only in
their imaginations. To the people who
traveled in Mexico, Central or South
America during the quarter of a century of
Republican administrations, or observed
the course of events in those parte
throughout the period referred to, the
news of "this vigorous foreign policy" will
come like a revelation.
it is notorious that during the era of
Republican control ol the state depart
ment, excepting Secretary Seward's ad
ministration, this country had no foreign
jiolicy worthy the name.
Kroni the Kio Grande to Cape Horr,
where our fluy should have been treated
with the utmost respect and American
citizenship should have commanded ua-
qualified deference, the Stars and Stripes
were received with derision or contempt,
and in times of riot, turbulence or insur
rection, the citizens of the great North
American republic have time and again
found it the part of wisdom to seek im
munity for their lives and property by
claiming the protection of Great Britain,
even if in doing so they had to deny their
relation to Uncle Sam. Outrages upon
the people of this Union traveling abroad,
were of continual occurrence, while the
instances of redress or reparation stood
out boidly because of their scarcity. When
Mr. Bayard became secretary of state in
Mr. Cleveland's Hrst term, besides the en
tanglements adverted to by the Times-
Ilerald, and a lor.g list of claims for rep
aration and indemnity which had lain in
statu quo for several Republican admin
istrations, he found at least three Ameri
can citizens who had suffered the misery
and indignity of confinement in foreign
prisons as suspects, and without having
enjoyed the benefits of trial, for almost
the entire time caverod by the Garfield-
Arthur administration. The most not
aole of these cases of unwarranted impris
on men t was that of McSwceny, the Irish-
American jailed by the British hecause of
the suspicion of being implicated in a
conspiracy on behalf of Irish national-
I . _
| McSwceny was in the custody of the
| English government during the adminis
! tration of that idol of American tail
twisters. James G. Blame, and it was not
until Thomas F. Bayard assumed the
duties of the state department that the
unjustly conrinel citizen was released.
The other cases referred t3 were in the
West Indies, Huyti and San Pomingo,
beins the countries infringing upon the
treaty rights of American citizenship. In
both instances after a proper investiga
tion Secretary Bayard demanded and
obtained the release of the men. In thus
vindicating the dignity of the United
States and conserving tiie legal interests
of these previously neglected Americans,
Mr.Bayard did not trail any coats around
] the world with invitations to tread upon
the tails of the garments, but with tbe
firmness, dignity and quiet wisdom that
should always characterize an American
secretary of state, he lirst ascertained the
status of the cases, and after satisfy ing
himself that injustice'had been perpetrat
ed he accomplished the results desired. |
If nap-doodle oratory and spread-eagle
editorialisni were all tbat might be re
quisite for a foreign policy, that of the
Republican party would thrill the world;
but if, indeed, it is a fact that a success
ful foreign policy rests upon the vindica
tion of American honor, the protection of
American citizens abroad, and the ae
] complishnient of purposes, then the least
tbe Republicans say about the subject
the less they will have to apologize for or
explain away.
If left to themselves the contest be
tween Japan and China would not be a
complicated affair, but a mere matter of
going on with the war, or agreeing upon
terms that will put an end to it. As
there is interference on the part of some
of the European nations, the situation
may be regarded as an imbroglio. It
seems to be certain that Russia, France
and Germany have united in a protest
against sonic of the features of the treaty
already agreed to by the representatives
of the two powers. If repeated reports
are true, they take the side of Chin i, and
it is supposed that Great Britain will
support Japan.
The terni3 exacted of China by Japan
are not unusual, nor as exorbitant as
are often demanded by victors in war
certainly not as unconscionable as those
exacted of France by Germany at the
conclusion of the Franco-Prussian war.
To acquire territory and an indemnity in
money is in accjrd with a principle that
has been recognized time out of mind. So
far as we have information there is noth
ing concerning trade which would give
Japan any advantage over the most
favored nation. There appears to be noth
ing in the treaty which directly affects
any nation except the parties ana Corea,
Which becomes independent of China.
Great Britain, France and Russia have
possessions in Asia, and it is natural that
they should bs watciiful of what trans
pires on tbat continent, and to sic that
none of their rights aro jeopardized.
Germany has no interests beyond those
common to all commercial nations.
Tliis interference on the part of Eu
ropean governments is but a phase of the
long continued conflict between Great
BHtaln and Russia for control in Asia.
China lies between the possessions of the
two, and Japan being sea-girt is not con
tiguous to either. Russia for a long time
has had ambition to become a great
maritime power. Her frontage on the
Baltic is 1 iniite 1 and affords insufficient
opportunity for realization of her aspira
tions. For half a century Russia has de
sired to get an outlet through the Bos
phorus, aud thence through the Mediter
ranean sea to the Atlantic ocean and has
waged repeated wars for that purpose,
but has been thwarted chiefly by Great
Britain. Despairing of securing anything
of great value in Europe she nas turned
her attention to Asia, and by the con
struction of a railroad from European
Russia through Siberia has gained a foot
hold at tide water on the i'acific ocean.
Whether that country has other than
commercial objects in view is not wholly
conjectural,for she has advanced in other
directions than toward the sea, and at
some points ber schemes of territorial ex
tension have been checked by the Britis i.
Russia has been constantly reaching out
towards India in her acquisitions, lead
ing to the belief that she regards Gieat
Britain's most vulnerable point to b» in
Asia. In consequence of the assistance
rendered to Turkey by Groat Britian
when at war with Russia it is presumed
that the latter nation is disposed to get
revenge by imperiling British possessions
in Asia, and if such be tho case support
of China in the present instance is in
pursuance of that policy. A friendly act
to China will tend to make hnr tolenint
of Rusian schemes and cause her to be
come a friend in case Great Britain and
Russia should come to blows in Asia.
The combination in Europe in favor of
China is formidable and peculiar. It is
not surprising that France and Russia
should unite, for the entente Cordials has
for some time existed between thorn; but
that Germany, having no special instercst
in the question, should join in, is some
what surprising. For France and Ger
many to be antagonistic is historical, and
the relations between them for the last
quarter of a century have been more than
ordinarily strained. Russia and Germany
have not been on tlie best of terms. It
is a triumvirate that may have an omi
nous meaning for Europa. Germany
formed a combination with Austria and
Italy to be able to me?t the coalition be
tween France and Russia. If the report,
be true that Italy will sido with Great
Britain on the present Asiatic question.
:t may be presumed that the Dreibund
was dissolved on the entrance of Germany
into the new combination. Whether op
position to the Chinese-Jap an treaty will
go beyond talk and protest, remains to be
seen. The tone of Russia seems to be
quite decided. No doubt Li Hung Chang
feels that he consented to the terms em
braced in the treaty under duress of war.
Japan will hardly cons nt to terms dic
tated by a power not in interest, as noth
ing in the treaty requires discrimination
by China against any country in the matter
of commerce, that plucky nation will prob
ably resent inlerfernce. Should Russia,
backed by France and Germany, demand
modifications not in accordance with her
ideas, and should China refuse ratifica
tion of a treaty not in accord with Rus
sia's demands, the war will undoubtedly
be resumed, and then the great question
will be whether Russia and her backers
will render aid to China in a substantial
way. Should that step be taken, Great
Britain would have no alternative but to
support Japan with force.
China is a neighbor to Russia, and her
friendship and stre lgth are of vital im
portance in an Asiatic conflict with Great
Britain. To allow Japan to become the
leading Asiatic power would weaken Rus
sian influence on the continent, and add
to that of her rival a/id enemy. This
Asiatic imbroglio may involve Europe.
The triumvirate that has been'formed
would seem to be a preparation for possi
b'C result. Happily the United States has
no political interest in the contest. We
have trade with both countries, and in
Japan it is second in volume only to that
of Great Britain, and it is about the same
with China. There is talk that in case
the situation becomes serious, Great Brit
ain will endeavor to induce our govern
ment to join her in support of Japan. It
is our policy not to interfere in cas'S be
yond the American continent, and it had
better be adhered to.
A correspondent of The Herald refer
ring to a paster used by the single tax
ers, containing the follow.ng extract from
an alleged supreme court decision: "The
reserved right of the people to the rental
value of the land must be conceded as the
condition of every deed," asserts that
this is in conflict with the late income
tax decision of the supreme court. He
claims that the court has decided that
the tax on rents is a direct tax and,
therefore, unconstitutional. This erron
eous construction of the supreme court's
verdict regarding direct taxation seems to
be 'quite Irrelevant. The court did
not decide a direct tax unconstitu
tional; it did aver though that the
method of imposing a direct tax,
as provided by the income tax,
law would be unconstitutional. Congress
can levy a direct tax, but it must be ap
portioned among the states in proportion
to the population of each. The accuracy
of the quotation alluded to we cannot
speak for, but the constitutional power of
congress to levy direct taxes will be ap
parent to anyone carefully reading the
third paragraph of section 2, article I
of tbe federal constitution. This mistaken
interpretation of the supreme court's de
cision regarding direct taxation walks
hand in hand with that other blunder so
many people nurse, that the decisions of
courts should consider the merits of the
law being tested. These hall ucinations

under General Banning and seived until

Several Days
But Manages to Do It 60 Quietly That She
Almost Succeeds in Escaping Without
Having Been Recognized
One of the penalties attendant upon
greatness is the fact that the enterprising
American newspapar is bound to add a
grain of notoriety to one's fame. There
fore, Leoause Miss Beatrice Harraden qui.
etly and unostentatiously ate dinner wiih,
three lady friends last evening in one ol
the down-town cafes, the readeis of the
Herald mu;t nejds ba made acquainted
with that fact today and a few further
points regarding the brainy little woman's
personality. Miss Harraden is petite,
with a tendency to stoop forward when
she w. Iks that is evidently the result of
ill-hea.th, but wbich makes her look the
smaller at the ;ame time. She is slight of
tttture, has vcy dark hair and brown,
eyes that glisten and gleam through her
glasses when she talks and also her wholo
face becomes animatoa.
She came to Southern California last
fall, broken in health and very much in.
need of an entire change and rest. All of
this she has had in the home of hes
friend Mrs. Kendall who lives seventeen
miles out of San Diego and who came north
with Miss Harraden that she might sea
the Fiesta and. le bataille d»s tleures at
Santa Barbara. For several days the au
thor of Ships That Pass in tne Night,
The Oreen Dragon and other clever sto
ries has been the guest of Misses Kelso
and Hnsse in their jolly, comfortable
quarters on South Hill street. Mrs. Ken
dall has also been here, and the quartette
w r ere enjoying a very charming dinner
en famille at at the hostelry above stated
when the scribe intruded, as scribes, will.
The little, writer speahs with a strong
Knglish accent, and expressed herself as
very, very charmed with this section of
the country,of course, and told how much
she wantJU tj stay here now and meet
some of the friend's Miss Kelso wants he»
to meet, nnd others whom she brought
letters: but even r.fter all these months
she is not yet strong enough to bear too
much without rest. She flits southward
today again, therefore, to remain until
she has overcome the effects of the lata
festivities, and the wonian'scongress eoni
venes in May, at San Francisco. She wjll
attend that, and upon ber return from
tbcie she will spend a week in I.os Ange
les before she starts for New York. Then
it is she hopes to extend her acquain
tance among the people here, and stadtl
the storms of formal interviews if must
be. Meanwhile she s riled very grac
iously in the informal chat of last night
and alluded with much naivette and
charm to the interesting day just spent
in Chinatown, where the party had ex
perienced the unholy joy of buying and
burning punks and other delectable Chi
nese curios.
