Tho company ia today national in tho broad cat sonao of theword. Though flrat incorporatcd in 18-18, an nmended chartor waa tnkon out in 1849, and the Compauy'a nctive buainosa ca reor began in 1850.

Tho Company now occupiea evory important northorn and weatorn State, and aomo of tho aouthern.

The Scuttlo Policy. Proaidont McKinlcy, in hi8 accop- tance apeech, declared that "the Phil- ippinea aro oura and American author ity mual be aupremo throughout the archipolago. There will be amneaty, broad and liberal, but no abatomont of our right, no abandonment of our duty. There will be no scuttle policy. The Preaidont'a characterization of the "paramount iaaue" tho Domocrata raiae by reaolution ia felicitoua and forceful. That iaaue ia "the scuttlo policy." It haa over boen tho policy; of tho Democratic party in a deaporato criaiB of ita affaira. When the acoptor waa doparting from tho party, aftorf the elcction of Lincoln in 18G0, ita policy was to acuttle tho Uniou. Whon tho war for the preaorvation of tho govern mont waa entering upon ita flnal atage, in 1864, it again npplied thia acuttlo policy, declarod tho war n failuro, do- mandod tho withdrawal of the Union armioa from tho south and the nogo- tiation of peace with tho robela. In later timea tbo party aucceoded in lts purpoao to acuttlo the induatrioa of tho country. The acuttlo policy waa tri- umphant for four yeara and proapority . wont to tho bottom. Tho aamo policy with reforenco to tho results of tho Spaniah war ia now proclaimed by the piratical crew that controlled the Kan saa City convention aa tho paramount issuo of tho pending canvaBB for the control of the government for the next four year. Mr. McKlnloy declarca, what ia the paramount American aontimont aa it waa in 1860, again in 1864, and in tho later yeara of flnancial and oconomic conflict that "thcro must be no scuttlo policy" now ln roapect of the Philip plnea. We muat fulflll there "tho obli gatlona impoaed by tho triumpha of our arma, by tho treaty of poaco, by inter national law, by thia natiou'a aonao of honor, and moro than all by the righta, intoreata and conditiona of tho Philip pine peoplo themaelvea." Tho Demo cratic party may bo ablo to poatpono, aa it did betwoen 1861 and 1864, aa it haa done in later yoara, tho realization of patriotic hopea hopca and hlgh pur poaea, but order will bo roatorod ln tho new poaaoeBiona, and tho blcasinga of order and good govemmont aecured for thoir inhabitanta, under tho Ilepuhli can adminiatration. "Tho acuttlo pol icy" may bo propoaod, but ovon tho tomporary paramountcy vouchaafod to it in tho aecond elcction of Clevoland will not thia yoar bo grantod. Ita Folly Aunijzcd, Thero ia nothing Popullatic about tho Rrattleboro Iieformer. Ita Democracy may not bo of tho wholeaomo, broad gunced, patriotic kind exomplifled by tho Timea of New York, tho Eagle of Brooklyn, and other Btorling papera of tho roal Democracy of n formor gonor ation, but its frankncaa, conslatoncy uud odltorinl honoaty aro iu atriking con traat with tho lack of thoao qualltioa in somo other papera whoao reproaonta tivea, howovor, flguro na chlof cooka and bottlo waahora ln tho party mnnngc mont in Vermont. Tho Iieformer analyzeB tho work of tho Kouaaa city convontlon, and cm plmticnlly adminiatora ita condcmua tiou. It aaye: "A Btudy ol tho work of tho Kansas City convontlon only brluga Into ahurpor rellof tho uttor folty ot lta nctlon ln adoptlng tho 10 to 1 plank.

Tho Reformer Bhowa, what has al rcady boen diacloaed, that tho ailvor re aolution waa forccd upon tho committoo by tho action of tcrritorioa which havo no clcctoral votoa to givo, or by Statea, like Vermont, whlch aro hopoloaaly llopublican. Tho Statea voting for tho roaolutlon caBt only 148 electoral votca, and of thoao only 05 can by any poaal bility bo Democratic. Tho Stntoa vo ting ogalnat tho 10 to 1 roaolution havo 207 olcctoral votoa, and of thoao 13, bo- foro 1896, woro doubtful. In tho Jie- former's judgmout "tho vorioat tyro in politica" ought to havo known that the roBBon why Bryan inaiated upon tho tho reBolution to hold ailvor Ilepubli cana and populiata in nllianco "ia now but n ahodow." To tho contemporary "tho nomino- tion of Bryan aocma to bo moro coldly rccoivcd than waa expectod, and tho drift of opinion juat now ia that hia clection ia hopelesB." It citea tho cir- cumatanco of the dofoction of old timo Domocrata aud nowapapera in tho East and Woat and notoa tho eiguiflcant fact Ihat tho Chnrlotte (N. C.) Observer openly bolta tho nominaliona, and in Kentucky tho majority of tho anti- Goobol papora aro lining up in oppoai tion. Concludiug ita roviow of tho po- litical olementB the work of the convon tlon haa hopoleaely alienated tho Iie former aoya: "In a goneral way tho effoct of tho Kansaa City convontion'a work, aa waa cloarly to bavo boen aoon, ia to drivo away recruita for tbo aoko of retaining Populiata who wero loat any wny."
