? Dewey. who has just return
,^he Philippines, and who had
^?V^portunities Wh?e. there to form
ijtepinlonr?f the character and ability
SSie: Filipinos, states that, they are
^^^ryabl'o than the Cubans to govern
ll&niselves.'Bnd that W^to't
IWtTOe Cubans In all respects. Why is It
iMheh that we fought to free the Cubans
\;Ci?d arV no,? fighting to subjugate the
iV'?'PhUippln'os- ?: ? , - ?
V We began a war In April, 1898, for
theT sak^of Justice. Wo have gradually
^changed base until we have made this
? ? .?.wnr 'of justice a war of oppression.
?fMwe Went into the fray.to put an end
' to Spanish tyranny at our portals-in
; Cuba. We drove tho Spaniards from
&*&that inland, which has a history that
Is written in the blood of her heroes,
who have given up their lives in a
^ Struggle to free themselves from the
v inedlaeval'persecution that Spain had
.'goaded "them nvlth for ages. Now that
-we'have freed them of Spain, why do
we press' ourselves upon them? This In
. Itself is bad?but when it. Is considered
? that we are at this moment practicing
the very same 'tactics in the Philippines
that Spain practiced in Cuba, it makes
one almost weep at our inconsistency
and it puts us?the nation of llbertyj?
before the eyes of other nations as a
/' land of fickle foals and unprincipled
? knaves?"American Pigs," as the Span
iarda;called us.
This nation, that In 1776 declared it
Bolf to be free, that by force of arms
threw off the yoke of Great Britain,
that even now holds up before 'the
.'" world as Immortal heroes those patriots
Who, ill equipped, half clothed and fed,
fought persistently and fiercely for
freedom from oppression, that glories
in the signal success it achieved, Is now
waging an unholy war on a people who
have fought for generations against a
worse oppression than this nation ever
experienced. What right have wo to
war with these people. What have they
to do with Spanish tyranny In Cuba?
The Administration cabled to Com?
modore1 Devvey to proceed from Hong
. King to Manila hay, and capture or de?
stroy the Spanish fleet there, and then
to proceed at once to Honolulu. When
Commodore Dewey cabled to the Wash?
er :ington Administration that ho had de?
stroyed fhe Spanish fleet at Manila, the
, Administration then cabled him to take
and hold Mallna at all hazards, which
orders, with the assistance of OUIt
ALLIES, the Phlllpplnos, were success?
fully executed, and the Spaniards
driven out. One of the wisest things
that Commodore Dewey ever did was
to cut the cable connection with an Ad?
ministration which could change its
mind so quickly and radically. Without
the aid of 'the Phlllpplno land forces
Commodore Dewey would have had a
very difficult task to perform when he
attempted to drive the Spaniards from
Manila and vicinity, but when these na?
tives, who regarded us as a nation that
had come to drive the Spaniards from
their country and establish their Inde?
pendence, joined their forces with ours,
the Spanish sovereignty over the Island,
quickly ceased. Very good, indeed, but
the gentlemen who are at the helm
of state had to do more, and they went
to work and bought from Spain at $2 n
head the very same natives, who had
aided us In abolishing Spanish author?
ity and sovereignty in Luzon.
What right had any man or power to
buy from vanquished Spain a nation
that she no longer owned, by right, that
had been wrested from her by force of
arms before, the American fleet ever
made its gallant dash past the frowning
Spanish guns on Corregidor Island.
Abraham Lincoln, a man whom the
American people honored with the
greatest gift In their power, detested'\y
ranny and oppression. This man said in
one of his addresses: "Our reliance Is
in the Oove of liberty which God has
planted in us. Our defense is in the
spirit which prizes liberty as the her?
itage of ALL men. In ALL LANDS
EVERYWHERE. Those who deny free?
dom to others deserve It not for them?
selves, and under a just God cannot
long retain It."
Did Abiaham Linsoln know what
deep prophecy there was in those
words? Did he know that the nation of
which he was then President, which
.? hod ever regarded liberty as its greatest
bulwark, would In such a short time
? as half a century, he engaged In a war,
the end of which is to deprive a fellow
nation of Its God-given freedom? Most
undoubtedly NO. Nevertheless it is
true, but what is more?will his proph?
ecy prove true. We deny freedom to
others?will we retain It ourselves? Al?
ready we are feeling the effects of this
i maladministration. Trusts are formed
The worklngmen are forced to the wall.
Prices are Increased or decreased at the
will of corporations. What will follow?
Are the masses going to allow them
cv selves to be continually goaded? We?a
nation that a hundred years ago led
.. . the world In most substantial and glor-.
:;:; . J?us reforms, that regarded all men as
! ;equal, are now wielding our mighty I
, . Influence among men and nations in the|
direction of most alarming perils.
Let us be mindful less the wrath of ?.
-.-{?Jugl God overtake us. Let us organlzo
and strike the blow that will destroy1
thlssta^e of affairs. Let our weapon be
that^of tho people?the ballot. Let us
. make this present Administration of
. greed, injustice and roguery personified,
*Btep down and out. Let us start a new
regime of justice and liberty in 1900.

a Good Mod Icing,
Stomach troubles are so common and In
most cases so obstinate to euro that peo?
ple are apt to look with suspicion on any
remedy claiming to bb a radical, perma?
nent cure for dyspepsia and Indigestion.
Many such prldo themselves on their
acutoness In novor being humbugged,
espeolally In medicines.
This fear of being humbugged can bo
can-led too for, so far. In fact, that many
peoplo suffer for years with weak diges?
tion rathor than risk a little tlmo and
money In faithfully testing tho claims

universally used, as Stuart's Dyspepsia

vastly different In one important respect
from ordinary proprietary medicines for
tho reason that they aro not a secret
patent medicine, no secret Is mado of
their lngrcdionts, but analysis show them
to contain tho natural digestive ferments
puro aseptic pepsin, tho dlgcstivo acids,
Golden Seal, bismuth, hydrnstls and nux.
They aro not cathartic, "neither do thoy
act powerfully on any organ, but thoy
euro indigestion on the common sense
plan of digesting tho food eaton thor?
oughly before It has tlmo to ferment,
?our and cause the mlschior. This is the
only secret of their success,
Cathartic pills never have and never
can euro indigestion and stomach troubles
becauso they act entirely on tho bowels,
whereas tho whole trouble Is really in tho
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets taken after
meals digest the food. That Is all there
is to it. Pood not digested or half di?
gested Is poison as It creates gas,
acidity, headaches, palpitation of the
heart, loss of flesh and appetite and many
other troubles which aro often called by
