A VICIOUS llKl'Oiir.
The Special Committee of the Hou.se
on ltoad Contracts and Public Works,
has made a report to the House in
which they charge the Superintendent
of Public Works with (1) negligence,
(2) wrongfully withholding moneys
due for labor done, (3) bad construc
tion of roads, favoritism in distri
bution or awards, incompetence in pre
liminary surveys, illegal seizure of
private property, (4) withholding
money from applications to legitimate
objects, (5) private banking with pub
lic moneys, (0) wronging contractors,
(7) prejudice and favortism, (8)
presenting an unsatisfactory and un
reliable report, (9) ignorance of the
class of work done by sub-contractors.
This report is signed by A. B.
Loebenstein, J. D. Paris, W. F. Pogue,
and Li. L. McCandless.
Representative Isenberg refused to
sign it because, he stated, the Superin
tendent had not had a fair hearing,
as we will show. It is a fact beyond
dispute that the Committee has been,
for some days, taking testimony, and
on one occasion, recently, called the
Superintendent before it and examined
At no time during this elaborate
examination, did the Committee
furnish the Superintendent with a
copy of the testimony against him,
or with a copy of any charges
against him. nor, did it even inti-
Imate to ,him that it would make
any charges against him.
'We do not discuss the merits of
these charges. The Superintendent is
not now on trial before the public,
but the Committee is on trial for
deliberately convicting a man, without
giving him a hearing. The Commit
tee has acted as prosecutor, judge, and
jury, and made its judgment without
charge, information or hearing. It has
made an effort to ruin a man's charac
ter, without permitting self defense.
What the true Anglo-Saxon, and
every righteous man insists on is fair
play and not foul play, that a man
shall not be convicted, as the Super
intendent has been in this report,
without definite charges and an open
hearing. The President of the Re
public is entitled to it. So is the small
boy who steals a banana. "Fair play"
is the ring of the Anglo-Saxon cur
rent coin in the exchanges between
man and man. It repudiates the
"shinplasters" of underhandedness,
treachery, and conviction without trial.
On the facts as Ave have stated them,
and which are true, the Committee,
excluding Representative Isenberg,
has cut the ham strings of its own
moral sense of right, if it ever had any,
and it wobbles and reels in the Legis
lative hall like a mutilated bullock.
It seems to display only the ignorance
of naked savages, and the vindictive
hatred of justice shown by the Span
iards. The sooner these members are
run out of the country, through
Dewey's lines into the Spanish lines
of the Philippines, the sooner they
will get nearer to their natural and
congenial home. They deny to the
Superintendent that, which if denied
to each of them, would make them
whine like whipped dogs.
For an outrage like this, there can
be no measured language. The Anglo
Saxon never measures words, when
he sees flagrant, deliberate, premedi
tated injustice, and want of fair play.
It offends his moral sense with the
smell of a thousand pole cats.
The monarchy did better than this.
For the monarchy had some excuse in
the racial ignorance of the natives of
the Anglo-Saxon way of doing things.
It is natural enough that Loebenstein
should father these charges. The man
who deliberately indicted the Presi
dent and his advisers with treason,
and failed to prove it, is naturally the
man to father them. -The father of
lies, in the course of nature becomes
the father of liars," and breeds these
uncanny brats. When Representative
Paris loses sight of the Kona donkeys,
he is like a mariner who loses sight of
the North Star, and of course goes
wrong. Representative McCandless
will never find "truth which lies at
the bottom of the well," without sink
ing his artesian well borer deeper than
he has yet done. As for Representa
tive Pogue he treats the Superinten
dent as if he were a Maui steer to be.
simply lassoed and butchered.
Herbert W. Uowen. late American
Consul at Barcelona, states that
several times before he left that place
mobs numbering as many as 5000 per
sons threatened to destroy the Con
sulate. The police however protected
him. He noticed that among the men
forming one mob, there were very
many persons in uress suits, lie says
also: "I want to say that this country
(the United States) hardly realizes how
during the last few weeks in practical
ways, as well as in expressions of
sympathy. But I think we shall soon
understand that she is our truest and
