W HAT SHAIiIi THE HARVEST BEP
BY JAMES H BAHRT
We are just at the beginning of
what may provo to bo a total change
of nalional policy Will it be for
bolter or worse That depends
la our war with Spain a war for free
dotn or a war for conquest
If for freedom it must bo carried
on in a broad and magnanimous
spirit as it has beon by our nrmy
and navy But there aro many pafe
at home especially in editorial sanc
tums who arevory bitter against
the peoplo of Spain innocent of any
wrong intent and against the sol
diers and pallors of Spain forced
into tho service forstarvation wages
and starving at homo
My littlo daughter agod thirteen
when she saw tho glaring headlines
in tho daily papers announcing
Deweys victory and gloating oyer
tho deaths nf six hundred Spaniards
ashed with tearful jyos Papa aro
you glad that thosei Spaniards were
killed No Edith I am not I
thought not she rejoined for lots
of Spaniardsmay have children just
like us and aB sho kiSsed me ten
derly she added they will miss
their papas just as much as we
would miss you
Thero spoke the ono touch of na
ture Congress has virtually affirm
ed this to be a war for freedom and
not for conquest and Amoricaus so
desire it to bo For that they havo
freely offered their money and their
lives For that hundreds of their
corpses lie unburied to day on tho
hills around Santiago For that
our naval heroes from stokers to
admirals aro willing to sacrifice
everything
Cubunn for years under almost
unparalleled difficulty with
passed heroism havo fought for in
dopoudence not to nxchango ono
master for another a Spanish don
for au American syndicate Wo
haro no moro right to rulo over
Cuba or the Philippines thau has
Spain And right here let us ask
the question Would not tho Cubans
suffer as much under tho Mark
ITanna typo of trusts and monopo
lies controlling their courts legisla
tures and municipalities as they
have suffered under the rulo of
Spain Could evon tho roconcen
trados bo much worse off under
Spanish rulo thau are the miuers of
Pennsylvania Tennessee or Illiuois
or tho palace car builders of Pull
man Thousands of children in this
free country whoso fathers aro de
nied the right to work even now
clamor for bread and thousands of
mothers turn their faces to hide
their tears as they hear their littlo
ones ploading for what they oaunot
give Who that has visited tho gar-
rolo dingy story or the damp cellars
iu tho slums where live the very
poor could have failed to realizo
tueir terrible misery ana with a
sigh asked God to pity them
It is evidently the purpose of tho
administration and tho combines
back of it to take Cuba and tho
Philippines aud hold thorn not as
free countries uudor American pro
tection but as a moans by whioh to
opou n widor field for American
syndicates laud grabbers and poli
ticians as in the caso of tho Hawai
ian Islauds Au Amorioan protoo
toratu for Cuba and tho Philippines
is certainly necessary for a period
long enough to enable thoir pooplos
to ostablish such governments as
they desiro and aro capable of
organizing But that is a radically
differeut proposition from spending
hundreds of millions of our pooples
money and thousands of thoir livos
td make a few more plutocrats and
owners of principalities Our peo
ple do not want that policy Wo
are ossontially peaceful slow to
anger even when wo know that wo
havo beeu wronged yet bo strenu
ously bolieviug in peace that we will
evtmhftMor it The Spanish peo
ENT
ple aro warlike and its government
has takon advantage of that feature
to become in its colonial relatious
conscienceless groody cruel a
worlds bandit To crush Spain
now may bo a deadly blow to vested
wrongs and an indirect but emphatic
affirmation of tho inheront and equal
rights of all pooplos to tho soil and
that whioh they produce indepen
dent of deeds charters grants laws
or constitutions
In viows of what always follows
tho lust of conquest tho greed for
tho dominion of the earth I would
woro I to staud alono oppose tho
acquisition of territory on the
European plan oven should I bo
accused of treason and hanged as a
traitor
If this war is not for freedom
what is it all about After it is over
will come our greatost difficulties
our entangling alliances our vex
ed questions Tho liberty of tho
Cubans is important but the liber
ties of our own people aro more so
Iu this land teeming with plenty
with natural resources amplo for a
billion of poople there are millions
of tramps thousand of them in this
Stato alone which could support
fifty millions but does not support
much over ono million These
tramps are criminals by law because
denied the right to oarn an honest
living unless upon conditions with
which it is impossible for thorn to
comply
Millions of hands want acres
And millions of acres want bauds
Roturuiug from this digression to
tho war How would the American
Revolutionists have fought if tho
French government had said to
them Yes wo will help you to
get free of Groat Britain but of
course we shall havo to sue after
wards that your government is sub
ordinate to ours we will appoint
your governor and your principal
officials w will apply our revenue
and tax systems in your country
Yet this soems to bo tho program of
the administration as to Cuba and
the Philippines approved by many
Republican and some Democratic
politicians and papers and of course
by tho trusts and monopolies Will
the peoplo tolerate it Those aro
the elements of the question
What shall tho harvest be
Now let us look back a littlo to
enable us to look forward I was
opposed to this war because it was
unnecessary Had Presidents Cleve
land and McKinley but done thoir
duty by recognizing the Cubans as
belligerents instead of prosecuting
and punishing such Americans as
desired to aid them in furnishing
arms provisions otc tho Maiuo
would not havo beon blown up aud
thero would havo been no war be
cause the Cubans could have then
fought out thoir own salvation But
owners of Spanish bonds were in
fluential enough to stifle tho voice
of our people and control both ad
ministrations iu succession hoping
that tho Cubans would bo subdued
so that the bonds would rise Cuban
heroism and American sontiment
howevor proved too much for these
powers of darkness in high places
These they could not understand
boing thomsolvos destitute of pa
triotism eonscionco and humanity
Thoreforo thoy trimmod their sails
accordingly and failing to roalizo
on Spanish bonds thoy uow plan to
ensure Cuban bondage by grabbing
Cuban soil aud running Cuban pol
itics to their own ourichmeul
When the war is ovor and oven
during its progress for forewarned
