Nnvcil?Kite* ecss for Ihn Repnbljenua In l?UO Ilm Crj-, The Now York Herald's Washington correspondence of yesterday contains the following: it Is declared that Secretary Alger Is to be removed from tbo War Depart? ment?thai the President will be forced to send him back lo Michigan. it is also declared that General Miles is to be removed for two reasons: First, that when, as alleged, ho found the beef bad he did not so report to the Government; second, that be- does not work harmoniously with the adminis? tration. If reports are true, this will be the result of the investigation by the War Commission. 1: will report against the charge that "embalmed" beef was sup? plied to the soldiers, and that the can? ned and otherwise prepared meat was bod or poisonous; also that the charges that soldiers did not have proper food are untrue. With General Eagan court-martialed and as gracefully as possible relegated into obscurity, ami Alger put out of the War Department, and, better than nil, from an administration point of view. General Miles removed, the administra? tion will have a chance t i return to Its more Important work of Retting Its numerous Islands upon a business ba? sis. Millions of capital and the repre? sentatives of the chief interests of the country ate anxious to begin drumming tip trade in the now possessions of trop? ical America. DR.PBERCE'S MEDICAL FOR THE BLOOD, Li VER.LD rH^&Sn j ALGERISM AT THE LIMIT. 11 !s said the administration has stood ?Iii 11 t.n y?rV+T?i?vith?gi i .. t for? bcarnncc. ills eccentricities, Insincere personality and experimental freaks in the War Department have reached the limit. j t it Is said President McKinley Is ?s hungry for expansion as the most nr 1 dent jingo, but be believes in making haste slowly. IN- is a born diplomat. With able men around him, and as an administration syndicate they are not only in full possession of the govern ment, but largely in control of the politics nnd business of the country. So the situation may be summed up In n paragraph?"Expansion ami no hauling down Of the American flag." Progression In the newly acquired is lands ami victory for the next McKIn ley campaign is the program of the administration. Any obstacle standing in the way of this carefully prepared si home must ?:<>. Any Halo thins like the beef scan? dal Is only an Incident in the daily routine of spreading the American flag from Porto Rico to the Philippines. Success on these lines will mean the re-election of McKinley by an expan? sive majority. it means glory nnd i prosperity for every man in t^io game. Millions are at stake. The property of the country nnd the big combinations behind It will tolerate no picayune In? terference. It Is considered a national crime for any man. high or low. to hinder the harmony of the government machinery, ANNOYED BY PETTY SQUABBLES. Nev? r were the affairs ?.f state so mo-1 mentous. Hence the annoyance of the Intrusion of petty squabbles Into War Department nfTaliv. The statesmen are Indignant; the administration feds nut raged. The syndicate managers who gave their money and hearts in the last campaign to elect McKinley are as much interested in expanding the business of the country and doubling the demand for American products as the President himself. This explains why things are working in one general direction. Senators. Representatives, statesmen, ofllco hold? ers and party len?srs all over the country have received their cue nnd are beating their drums accordingly. Harmony is the watchword. If things are not right, "keep your mouth ishut for the gf>od of the country." What if there was bad beef and a general mud? dle in the transportation service? We whipped the Spaniards, new and glo? rious history was made, and the gov? ernment takes Its place high among t-hn great Powers of the ivorld. TOE HUB THE HUB. THE HUB.

Is attacked by another employe, who makes .t scene, resulting In a scan-1 dal. The heads of the house hold a ten minuus conference and discharge both employes, considering the Irregu? larities complained of .is of little im portanee beside the good name of the^ house and its vast interests on land and pea. This is the sentiment of the big syndicate men backing the administra? tion. POLITICS AND BUSINESS. In a word, it is politics. "Success Col? our party in 1900" is the cry. It meets the approval of men like Hanno, Depew, Grosvenor und gentlemen In the Cabinet not expecting to be Presi? dent themselves. In the old days "f Jefferson, Webster and Clav, constitutional law, the science of government and the tariff ' were problems of great minds. To? day, politics and business are synony? mous terms. Without one, the other falls. That Miles should have the bad taste to step In at the last hour arid mnke I a row about the beef sen! to the s >1- i illers during the greatest and niosl ' glorious conflict ever waged against despotism Is an impertinence not to be I forgiven. Incidentally, however, General Mites has strong backing among the Volun? teers of the country who are not in the administration ring which controls mil? lions in New York, Chicago, Philadel? phia and other financial centres. Ranchmen, cowboys, cattle herders, farmers and the "mnss- s" ai ? Fol;.I for General Miles, because ho attacked the beef. ? They argue thnt If he is wrong Roosevelt is wrong. Each man corro? borates the other and a majority the soldiers of the country, volunteers and regulars, who were at the front. The low death rate of the mariners on shore duty?being less than 4 per cent.?who ; live on navy rations-., is considered a point of startling significance, a.? against the large death rate by Illness in the army.

The attempt to suppress testimony and frit ts will be a fatal boomerang t.i the War Department end of the Qov eminent. Private reports from East and : West show that the crime of giving beef not fi| for food to the soldiers is of less significance to the people than the tendency to Ignore or belittle the express:, ns of the returned soldiers set ttcrcd over the country.
