HOAR ON THE PHILIPPINES. Aged Statesman Sees En<l of Re publican Party. QUOTES JEFFERSON & LINCOLN Tlie Senator from Nnuacliuitlla Op poses the Umpire-We Have Ni» I're reilent for Criminal Aggression. Speaking to Senator Beveridge's resolu tion to letain the Philippine Islands, Senator Hoar said in part: Tlie American people so far as I know, were all agreed that their victory brought with it the responsibility of protecting the liberated |>eopluß from the cupidity of any other power uutil they could e lab lish their own independence in freedom and in honor. 1 stand here today to plead with you not to abandon the principles that have brought these tilings to pass. I implore you to Veep to the policy that has mads; the country great. I have nothing new to say. But 1 ask you to keep in the oltl channels and to keep off tlie old rocks laid down in the old charts, and to follow the old sailing orders that all old captains of other days have obeyed, to take your lieariugs, as of old, from the nortii star, and not trom the meteoric light of em pire. Especially if 1 could, would I per suade the great republican party to come back again to its old faith, to its old re ligion, before it is too late. "For so a taper, when its crown of flame is newly blown off, retains a nature so symbolical to light, that it will with greediness re enkindle and snatch a ray from the neighbor tiie." 1, for one, believed, rind still believe, that the pathway to pros|«nty and glory for the country was Also the pathway to success and glory for the republican party. I thought the two things inseparable. If. when we made the treaty of |>eace, we had adhered to the purpose we declared when we declared war; If we had dealt with the Philippine Islands as we prom ised to deal, have dealt, arid expect to deal with Cuba, the country would have es cu|<ed the loss of (>,OOJ brave soldiers, other thousands of wrecked and shattered lives, the sickness of many more, the expenditure of hundreds of millious, and, what is far worm than all, the trampling under foot of its cherished idejtls. _ 'Ihere i'tfihe East, sitting docile at our feet, re ceiving from us civilization, laws, man ners, and giviug in turn everything the gratitude of a free people could give—love, obedience, trade. The Philippine youth would throng our universities; our Con stitution, our Declaration, the lives of Washington and Lincoln, the sayings of Jefferson and Franklin their schools. I do not underrate the importance of this issue. It is greater than parties, greater than administrations, greater than the happiness or prosperity of a single generation. I believe not only that perseverance in this policy will bo the abandonment of the principles upon which our govern ment was founded, that it will change our republic into an empire, that our methods of legislation, of diplomacy, of adminis tration must hereafter be those which belong to empires, and not those which tielong to republics; but I believe persist ence iu this attempt will result in the defeat and overthrow of the republican party. That defeat may not come this year, or next year. 1 pray God it may never come. I well remember when the old whig |»arty in the flush of delirium and anticipated triumph, gave up the great doctrines which it had so often uvowed ami undertook to abandon the great territory between the Mississippi and the Pacific to its fate. It held its convention at Philadelphia. It selected as its candidate a great military chieftain. Ainid the tempest and delirium a quiet delegate from my own state arose and declared to the convention that the whig liarty was dead. It seemed that a more audacious, a more foolish, a more as- I founding utterance never fell u|ion human i ears. And what was the result? The ; party carried the country and elected its I president. But within lean than four vears thereafter Daniel Webster, as he lay dving at Marshfield, said: "The whig piirtvasa |H>litical organization is gone; and it is well." liCt no such fate attend the republican paitv. In my judguient.if not now, it will retrace its steps in time. The constitutional question is: Has ' congress the power, under cur constitu- I lion, to hold in subjection unwilling vas i sal state*? .... The nueiition of international law is: ! I Can anv nation rightfully convey to an '! otlur sovereignty over an unw illinu |«eoj»I« \ who have thrown oil' itH <lominion, as | scrted their iudeiMMideiice, established a , government of their own. over whom it \ has at Hie time no practical control, from ; whose territory it has been disseized, and which it is beyond it* power to deliver? The question of justice and righteous ness is: Have we the right to crush and j1 hold under our feet an unwilling and ~ subject people whom we had treated as , i allies, whose independence we are bound I. in good faith to re*|<oet, who had estab .; lished their own tree government and ' : who had trusted us? .; The question of public ex|iedioncy is: | Is it for our advantage to promote out J trado at the cannon's mouth and at ihe , |Kjint of the bayonet ? ' All these questions can lie put in a way of practical illustration by inquiring I whether we ought to do what we have ' done, aro doing, and mean to do in the 1 case of Cuoa; or what we have done, are doing, and nou e of you mean to do in tho case of 'he Philippine Islands? Is it right, is it just to subjugate this i 1 |>eople? To substitute our government ' I for their self-government, for the constitu- | tion they have proclaimed and established, a scheme of government such as we coald devise ten thousand miles away? Is it right to put over them officers whom we are to select and they are to obey and pay? Is it right to make tariffs for our inter ests and not theirs? Are the interests of the Manila tobacco grower to be decided ii|>on hearings given to the tobacco raisers of the Connecticut River valley? Are these mountains of iron and nug gets of gold and stores of goid and hemp bearing tit Ids and fruit-hearing gardens to be looked upon by onr legislators with covetous eyes ? Is it our wealth or their wealth these things are to increase? There aie other pregnant questions, some of which tierliaps require a little examination and a little study of the re ports oi our commanders. Had they rightfu'ly achieved their in de|«ndence when hostilities began be tween us and theiu ? Did they forfeit their independence by the circumstances of the war? On the whole, have they not shown that they are fit for self-government, tit a- Cuba, fit as Greece, fit as Spain, fit as Japan, lit as Haiti or Sail Domingo, tit as any country to the south of us, from the Kio Grande to Capo Horn, was when, with our approval, those countries won their liberties f-om Spain? Can we rightfully subjugate a people b«oause we think them unfit for self government? One of the great mistakes of many hon est |*eople is the belief that Aguinaldo has in some way imposed hinißelf upon the people of Luzon and the neighboring islands against their will; that he is an unscrupulous usurper, who forced his authority on an unwilling people. This notion is corrected a hundred times by the testimony of our officials. Aguinaldo was as much the recognized leader of his l>eople as Kossuth was the recognized leader of the Hungarians. . Aguinaldo came back to Luzon. He found 30,000 men in arms for liberty wait ing to receive him. He conquered. They' were poorly armed at first, but they got arms abroad. They banished Spain from the whole of Luzon and the Visayas.; they captured thousands upon thousands of Spanish prisoners; other thousands wore committed to them by us, until they had the whole of the civilised portion of those islands under their command and hemmed Spain into the city of Manila by aline ot intrenchments extending from water to water. But for what they did thi army of Spain could have withdrawn itqpif from the neighborhood of our fleet; an j could have held its own against our injjjtftry forces very likely to this mo tUttTit. ties on the sth of February, 1899, the forces of the people of whom Aguinaldo was the head held that entire territory as secure ly, as exclusively, as the American people held Massachusetts throughout the Rev olutionary war after the evacuation ol Boston on the sth day of March, 1776. They organized a civil government It is true Aguinaldo was declared in the be ginning dictator chief, as in three in stances in South America Bolivac was declared dictator. That happens in all revolutions. While the conflict ol arms is going on, but simultaneously with the dictatorship, Aguinaldo declared his pur pose to surrender as soon as peace and order could be restored and libeity achieved, and as fast as that happened, peaceful and orderly local government took the place of military power. Now, Mr. President, there is no historic fact more clearly established by historic testimony than the facts— First, That these people were aiming at independence from the beginning. Second, That they achieved inde pendence. Ah, Mr. President, that gentleman saye we are auointed of the Lord, as the Jews were anointed of the Lord. But the Jew ish empire is forgotten. The sands ol the desert cover the foundations of her cities. The spider spins its thread, the owl nukes its midnight perch in their palaces. But still those little words, "Thou shalt not steal; thou shatt not covet that that is thy neighbor's; what ever ye would that men shall do unto you, do ye even so again unto them," shine through the ages, blazing and un dimmed. Mr. President, you may specu late ; you may refine; you may doubt; you may deny. But the one foremost action in our history, the foremost action in all history, is the writing upon its pages those'simple and sublime opening sen tences of the Declaration of Indeiwnd ence. And the mon wiio stand by it shall live in the eternal memory of mankind; and the mon who depart from it, how ever triumphant and successful in their little policies, shall perish and be for i gotten, or shall be remembered only to : be despised, j You can not buy the liberties of a peo ! pie from a disiiossessed tyrant, libeities they have bravely won for themselves in > anus. You can not buy sovereignty like ■ merchandise aud men like sheep. The 11 King of England kept, down to 1800, the title of l>uke of Normandy and King ol i 1 France. Could any other country or all 11 Kurope together bate bought France ol 1 King George? I won ler what would ■ i have hap|iened if, instead of acknowledg- I iug our independence, any time before I the French treaty France had bought II Kngland out and undertaken to assert I; her title to the United States. These " questions have to tie answered, net amic I the shouting and applause of a politica campaign, not in party platforms, no : alone in a single campaign or a singU ,! generation. They have got to be answerec tc history, to the instiucted conscience 1 of the civilized world when the passiom ' I and the greed and the ambitions of i B single generation there will be to then e but one answer. " The l*eclaration of Independence i not so much a declaration ol rights as i l declaration of duties. It prescribes a ruli -1 of couduct for men in the same state ti JTChere will be some good bargains next week. BE ON HAND AT I. HARRIS & SOIS, 'SS"- DispfayTRIMMED ITS, ' r TO SUIT ALL PACES MRS. S.

Like the golden rule it makes the law of individual right the law also of individual duty. Do sen ators reflect how this "imperialism," as they call it, is inaugurating a revolution not only in the law of nations, not only in the fundamental law by which the peo-; pie of the United States have governed j themselves until now, not only in the in terpretation of the constitution, but in the moral law itself ? As I hear the utter ances of some worthy gentlemen taking the name of God upon their lips, it seems to me as if they thought the balance of the universe itself had changed within this year, and that God had gone over to the side of Satan. There is one queauou «. put t» the republican majority in the senate and to the republican party in the country: Isthisdoctrinetrueorisitfalse? Are you to stand on it any longer or are you going to whistle it down the wind? Thomas Jefferson declared it, this pre cise doctrine now at stake here. John Qnincy Adams reaffirmed it again and again. Abraham Lincoln raid he was willing to be assassinated for it. Charles Sumner was almost assassinated for it in his place in the senate chamber. Mr. President, I know liow imperfectly I have stated this armament. I know ho*v feeble is a single voice amid this din and tempest, this delirium of empire. It may be that the battle for the day is lost. But I have an assured faith in the future. I have an assured faith in justice and the love of liberty of the American people. The stars in their courses fight for free dom. The Ruler of the heave is is on that side. If the battle of today go against it, I appeal to another day, not distant and sure to come. I appeal from the clapping of hands and the stamping of feet and the brawling and tho shouting to the quiet chamber where Die Fathers gathered in Philadelphia. I appeal from the spirit of trade to the spirit ol liberty. I appeal from the empire to the republic. I ap peal trom the millionaire, and the boss, and the wire-puller, and the manager to the statesmen of the elder time, in w hose eyes a guinea never glistened, who lived and died poor, and who left to his chil dren and to hii< countrymen a good name far better than riches. I appeal from the president, bloated with material prosper ity, drunk with the lust of empire, to an other and a better age. I appeal from the president to the future and to the past. A Perfect Light.... meant* more than a stood light. It mean. a light that 1* brilliant and steady, one that gives little heat, no smoke, and no odor, and that cnits but little to turn and needs but slight attention. Wouldn't you call a light like thla a perfect light? If you had such a light wouldn't you think It better than gas or electricity; wouldn't you say It had all their advantages and niue Of their faults? Well, there is such a light—lt's The Angle Lamp. And besides these points It throws the light Just where it Is wauted—downward and outward. As to the cost to burn—One Quart of Ordinary Keroaeua or Coal till l.mla sixteen Hour*, The Angle I.amp stands by itself—there's nothing quite so good. It is a perfect substitute for gas or electricity. Wheu stores, churches or houses are lighted with It they look cheerful and attractive. Of course it costs more than poor, old-fashioned lamps, but it saves its cost many times over in a year. Its chenp at any price. All styles from one burner up. Call and see them. - A, P.
