is in consonance witn good morals,
with justice, and with good politics.
In fact, the obligation

strange that an organ which has,

WASHINGTON LETTER. 8
(Prom our reqularOorrespo~nsdet1.) T
WAsHINGTON, .MA. 2, 1900. &
The Republican leaders of the
House are still shaking from the
fright given them by their 1
narrow escape from a humti:ating *
defeat on the Porto Rico tariff hill.
The figurative sack cloth and ashbes
of Ash Wednelsday came very near
to being real for them on that day.
They amended the hill by reducing
the tariff from 25 to 15 per cent,
which Representative Berry aptlyj
said merely changed the ce ime from
grand to petty larceny, and by limit- 54
ing its operation to two years, which T
was an acknowledgement that the p
whole principle of the bill was a
wrong one, and then they could not
get the votes needed to pass it with.
out resorting to every 'known form
of political bltdl dozmg and cajolery.
Had the republcans of the House
voted their real sentiments, the hill
would have been defeated by mo e
than a two third' vote insteal of A
eing ipasse by a vote of 172 to 161
The Co~atitutihbl unestion inv. Iv.
ed in this bil will not down. . it will
be heard when the bill is taken up
in the Senate, and it will be heard
all during the coming P'esidenti&l
campaign. and like other great que.
tions, will never ne settled until it
is settled right,
Alirich .xp!:ined the gold stani.
ard hi!l agreeI upon by the Confer,
ence Cmmittee, to the Senate, but
he did not attempt the impossihle B
tass of definhung the measure, which I
ought to ,e offil.lally entitled "A bi:l
to put minney in the pockets of tne
rich at the expense of the poot."
Within 24 bours of the time that si
the House was passing the bill to rob i Is
poor Porto Ricans by imposing a ft
duty upon the products they have
to sell the Senate was taking the firsti
step towards making Hawaii a State,
by passing the bill providing a teri
r torial government for Hawaii. If
I there is any logical rteaon for m:ik
e ing this unjust distinction between
I prosperous Hawaii and half-starved
a Porto Rico, it hrs been carefully
concealed from the public.
The House Military Committee has
t endorsed two pet schemes of the
administration to provide promotion
for favorites-that to give the Adju
- tant General of the army the rank,
1pay and a:lowance of Major-general
which will be in the nature of a
i reward to Gen. Corbiu for his sub
, serviency to Alger, and his under
hand attacks upon Gen- Miles, his I
I superior officer; and that authorizing
t the Preidilent to select a retired brig
adier general for promotion to major
general, which is intended to give Gen.
'hafter the difference between the
pay and emoluments of a brigadier J
general and a major general, retired,
as a reward for the Cuban campaign, .
the greater part of which he spent (
lying in a hammock. "Funny" old
Representative Bailey, of Texas,
made the closing spaech on the dem- -t
ociatic side against the Porto Rico 1
tariff bill, and it was a powerful plea i
for the maintenance of the Constitu
tion as its framers intend it to he
maintained. His last words, which 1
were received with uproarious ap
plause by the democrats and the t
occupants of the galleries, were: .
"When emotional " statesmen were
asking who would haul down the
flag, I dared to say that I would take
it down from any place where the 1
Constitution could not follow it. Do D
you desire to pre- ent the anomaly of a
government restrained by the Consti •
tution in one quarter of the globe, 1
and possessed of a despotic power inu
the rest of the world ? How long is
the Constitution to shield us and our 1
children if its protection is withheld -
from the humblest inhabitant? Let
me borrow the words of Lincoln: j
'This republic cannot endure onehalf
free and ont'half slave.'. We must
all be cttizens, or in time we must all
be subjects. I did not want to as.
similate these alien and inf.trior races,
and 1 pray God to deliver us from
the task. But if you would take .
them, they must share our destiny k
The bill providing for the ship
subidly job [.as been favorably re.
ported to the Senate. The report "
which was made on th* bill will e -
widely circulat.'d by the republican
for the puipse of trying to create a
public sentiment for the $200,000,000
job, but it is very doubtful whether
they will try to push the bill through
until after the Presidential election,
as word has been passed around -
amang the republicans in Congress to
keep the total of appropriations
made at this s+,ssion of Congress
down as much as poseible, with the
understanding that the money can
safely be made to fly at the next
session, which will not be held un
til after the Presidential election.
Of course, the disagreeable weath
er in Washingtoe had nothing to do
with the departure for Cuba, via
Florida, of Secretary Root. He is
going to make au "official inspection"
of Cuban ports, using a government
transport after he reaches Tampa.
What part his wife, son and daugh
tr, who accompanied I'm, are to take
in the "official inspection" is a ques.
tion which he may be able to answer.
To some persons this trip looks like a
wanter junket for his family at public
