whole it is the most disastrous and
humiliating administration *which the
country has ever experienced and»tbe
republicans will need something. more

tead them through it* 'bogs andjpitfalls.
sSBtik The country is loth to take the an
uouncement of Admiral Dewey's candi
Mg dacy for the presidency in a ^serious
manner. Republicans 'and democrats a
like characterize it as a mistake and,one

to tile honor in which he is already^held
by the people. His personal deolara
tion that he is a demoerat will avail-but
little under present conditions and will
only serve to give the republican' press
an opportunity to unsay all the lauda
tory things which they have up to the
present time been saying about the gal

:\. Following his usual custom McKinley
avoids letting the status of Porto. Rico
_' come to a test in the courts.,ijf|The New
,, York Herald imported a contract labor
er from Porto Rico for the sole purpose
of determinating whether or not he was
a citizen of the United States. The Im
,(j migration Commissioners of New York
refused him admission and detained him
in custody. Steps were immediately
taken to secure his release under a writ
of habeas corpus when the Administra
tion backed down. Sec.Gage telegraphed
to New York to release the man insian
ter, rather than let the com ts decide, as
they inevitably would, that the man
was a citizen entitled to the writ of ha
beas corpus and was merely on his way
from one part of the United States to
another. ,„n
And there's just where the shoe pinch
es, Bio. Dunn. The present Porto Rican
monstrosity is an object lesson as to
,T what'congress may be expected to do to
,i the trusts. It is not impossible that
good may come out of Nazareth, but is
highly improbable under present condi
I-, Unless the democrats wish to suffer
Qi^ }h" proverbial penalty of intermeddling
Congress can atone for any mistake it
h&s made in connection with the, Porto
Rican tariff bill by the enactment of
*,ome practical and intelligent measure
looking to the suppression nnd regula
tion of the obnoxious trusts. There are
thousands of people in the country who
neither know nor care much about the
question of Porto Rican free trade, but
there is cot an individual but who is in
terested in the trusts, and who wants to
see them placed unuer such control that
they can nether regulate the supply or
price of necessary ommodoties. That
which is done with the trusts may com
pensate for that which hai not been
done for 'Porto Rico.—Princeton Union.

he would be still more strongly of that

was completely spoiled when Tawney
