DOESN'T LIKE ALGER.
From the Baltimore American, Rep.
Russell A. '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
Rio Grand Railroad.
