'Alger has demonstrat el an absolute incapacity to handle the great affairs of state. Whatever he may be in business and society, he is a pronounced failure as a pub lic official. He entered the cabinet of the late President McKinley un der the most favorable auspices, and was given opportunity to enroll his name with the greatest of America's many competent department ex ecutives.. Subjected to this test, he failed so totally and ignominiously that the unanimous protest of an indignant people forced him to re sign and commit the management of our army to competent hands. All the scandals of the army in the Spanish war embalmed beef, faul ty transportation, fever camps, com missions bestowed by a rule of political and social favoritism. Shafter, and all the other multitud inous and odorous national repro aches of that war are piled up against the record of Russell A. Alger as secretary of war. The peo ple know him for what he is an incompetent in dealing with great affairs of national administration, and. therefore, unfit to sit with to send him to Washington after the people have driven him in dis grace from the capital would be for the state to offer an insult to the nation.
