m IMPERIALISM."
We have little patience with the ap
plication of the term "imperialism" to
the policy which has finally accom
plished the annexation of Hawaii, in
spite of persistent Democratic opposi
tion, and which is likely also to lead to
the occupation and permanent reten
tion of the island of Porto Rico as one
of the most legitimate and logical re
sults of the Spanish war. Considered
merely from the standpoint of territor
ial extension these little acquisitions
are of slight importance when com
pared with the vast additions to our
national domain which have been made
during the present century. And it is
worthy of note that the first and largest
of these additions, the Louisiana pur
chase, was the crowning event of the
first administration of Thomas Jeffer-
son, the idol of the Democratic party
and a strict constructionist of the con-
stitution, which he believed to be op
posed to the principle of territorial ex
tension. But fortunately he had the
easy and somewhat elastic conscience
which has always been characteristic of
the party and which enabled him to
adapt himsel to the ultra-democratic
idea that the power to "temporarily
override even the organic law in a case
of extreme necessity" is inherent in the
people.
The purchase of Louisiana was as
unpremeditated and unexpected as the
occupation of the Philippines by a joint
naval and military force of the United
States. It was not sought and it is
doubtful If it had even been dreamed of
by Jefferson whose name is most gener
ally associated with it, although the
purchase was actually made without
his knowledge, by James Monroe and
Edward Livingstone, who had been
invested with the discretionary powers
to purchase New Orleans from France
and were most unexpectedly confronted
with a proposition from Napoleon to
make an offer for the entire Louisiana
territory. This they promptly did and
the purchase was concluded before it
was possible in those days of slow trans
portation and lack of oceanic cable
communication to commuicate with
the government at Washington. Thus
for $15,000,000—scarcely more than two
weeks' cost of the present war—1,171,931
square miles were added to our nation
al domain which until then consisted
of 827,884 square miles, inhabited by
about 3,000,000 people—less than four
to a square mile and less in the aggre
gate than the city of New York alone
now boasts. Sixteen years later (1819)
the purchase of Florida from Spain
added 59,268 square miles; in 1845 the
annexation of Texas extended our juris
diction over 376,133 more square miles,
followed only three years later by the
immense Mexican cession of 545,783
square miles. Then in 1853 came the
Gadsden purchase by which for $10,
--000,000 the United States acquired 45,
--635 square mile of disputed territory
and the right of transit for troops,
mails and merchandise across the
Isthmes of Tehuantepec. Then came
the great Alaska purchase of 577,390
square miles for $7,200,000, swelling our
"imperial" domain from its compara
tively modest extent of 827,844 square
miles at the beginning of our national
existence in 1783 to 3,603,884 square
miles in 1867.
After having added 2,776.000 square
miles by annexation and extended our
domain over savage races and formerly
Alien people it would seem that there
ought not to be any alarming danger of
national dissolution arising from the
Addition of 7,000 square miles more,
Involving the absolute control of one of
the most important strategic points in
the Pacific ocean. It takes a Demo
cratic nose to soent danger in this kind
of "imperialism."
The trade between the United States
and Porto Rico is reviewed in a bulletin
issued by the secretary of agriculture,
compiled under the direction of Frank
H. Hitchcock, chief of the foreigu mar
ket section. Special efforts to secure the
most reliable and complete data were
made owing to the avowed intention of
the administration to make the bland
a permanent possession. The official
returns show that our commercial trans
actions with Porto Rico during the
fiscal year 1897, just closed, amounted
in value to $4,169,916, the least since the
civil war, except in 1896. The highest
mark was in 1873, when Imports and
exports had a combined value of $13,.
670,925. Subsequently the trade de
clined rapidly, and in less than a de
cade it has fallen off more than one
half. The average annual trade fell:
from $6,017,785 for 1888-92 to $4,856,817
in 1893-97. The reciprocity in force in
the three fiscal yean 1892-94 consider
ably augmented the trade, the average
annually in that period being
$6,159,794, against $5,867,804 for the
three preoeding years, and $3,968,572 in
the three years following. Our imports
are almost entirely agricultural. Non
agricultural commodities also form less
than 40 per cent of oar exports there-
Sugar is the most important of the im
ports, comprising nearly 75 per cent of
all imports, and, combined with molas
ses, would form over 85 per cent.
Fruits, nuts and spices are other im
portant agricultural imports. The aver
age annual import of coffee for the last
five years was 164,769 pounds, worth
$82,671. This item has declined about
two thirds in the last decade. The
leading non-agricultural imports from
there are perfumery and oosmetiev,
chemicals, drugs and dyes, unmanu
factured wood, and salt Breadstuff's
and meat products in value form near
ly 96 per cent of our agricultural ex
ports to Porto Rico. Wheat flour, the
leading export, reached a value of
1560,610 between 1893-97.
A call has been issued for a meet
iiig of the Republican state convention
at Tacoma September 21, the conven
tion to consist of 470 delegates appor
tioned among the various counties on
the basis of two delegates at large for
each county and one delegate for each
100 votes or major fraction thereof cast
for the Republican presidential elector
receiving the highest vote at the gener
al election in 1896. San Juan county
will have six delegates, the highest
Republican vote for presidential elector
having been 411. Eight counties have
a smaller number of delegates and
three others — Garfield, Mason and
Stevens, the same numlier. Th«» basis
of representation to all joint district
conventions will be the same as to the
state convention. It is expected that
Chairman Stowers, of the Republican
committee of this county, will call a
meeting of the committee at an early
date to fix the time and place of hold
ing the convention for the election of
delegates to the state convention and
also for the nomination of a county
ticket. It is considered quite likely
that the committee will consider one
convention sufficient for both these
purposes. If held on or about the 15th
of September as much time will be
afforded for the county campaign as
candidates can well afford to devote to
it. The time intervening between the
convention and election should not be
so long as to be wearisome or unneces
sarily burdensome to candidates.
The death of Prince Bismarck, the
"Iron Chancellor" of Germany, which
occurred at his home on the 30th of
July, removes from the world's stage
the great central figure of German poli
tics for half a century and the foremost
statesman of continental Europe. To
him more than to any king or emperor
the great German empire of today owes
its extent, its unity and its power. It
may be that he leaves behind him some
man great enough to take his place if
circumstances and conditions should
again arise to call forth such remark
able talents of organization and admin
istration as he possessed, but in the
great events which have characterized
the past half century of imperial pro
gress in Europe his great talents and
iron will have enabled him to over
shadow all of his contemporaries in old
world politics except William Ewart
Gladstone, the "Grand Old Man" of
England, who leaves behind him as
great and in many respects a nobler
impress upon British life and national
character as Bismarck has left upon
that of the "fatherland." -
The Saturday Review, of London,
makes this frank admission:
"The lesson of our conflicts with
America was that the American sol
diers and sailors shoot markedly better
than our own and won astonishing?
victories. It looks as if the lesson holds
good today."

Penny Postage.
Some London papers are talking
penny postage between this country
and England. As the cost of carriage
is said to be less than between New York
and almost any point west of the Mis
souri, there ought to be no great obstacle
to such an arrangement. Penny post
age between England, Canada and
some other British colonies has already
been determined upon. When it gets
into operation it will be possible to
evade the 5-cent postage by mailing to
Carala and having the letter for
warded, thus making the postage four
cents. Two-cent postage to England
may not come for a few years, but it
will be along in the course of the de
cade. And the fact that Canadian
merchants enjoy a 2-cent rate will not
retard the change in this country.

An elderly lady living at Fordbam
Heights, a part of New York City,
and who was known to be a warm
advocate of Bipans Tabulea for any
case of liver trouble or indigestion,
said to a reporter who visited her far
lan of her case: "I had always
employed a physician and did so on
the last occasion I had for one, bit
at that time obtained no beneficial
results. I had never had any faith
in patent medicines, but having sees
Bipans Tabules recommended tot
highly in the New York Herald con
cluded to give them a trial, and
found they were just what my case
demanded. I have never employed
a physician since, and that means a
saving of $2 a call.
A dollar's worth of
Bipans Tabula
lasts me a month,
and I would not be
without them now
if it were my last
dollar." At the
time of this inter
view there wen
present two daugh
ters who specially
objected to their mother giving*
testimonial which should parade her
name in the newspapers, but to do
this the elder lady argued: ''Then
mar be other eases just like mine,
and I am sure I take great pleasure
in recommending the Tabules to any
one afflicted as I was. If the telling
about my case in the papers enables
some other person similarly affected
to be as greatly benefited as I have
been, I see no objection." The daugh
ters, knowing bow earnestly she felt
about Ib* benefit aba bad received,
decided aba was quite right
