"FIRE ALARM" FO RAKER. Proposed Amendment to Anti-Trust Laws 111 Timed. Editor of Democrat: ' When that gallant republican knight ana statesman, "iire Alarm" Fbraker, proudly pranced through Ohio many years ago, announcing his intense sat isfaction at having been- publicly snubbed by Mrs Cleveland at a Yvte House reception, it was the generally expressed opinion of all impartial peo- !"ru thpnn(r.,ni h mx fimt he -well deserved the snub His venomous, disrespectful abuse Of President Cleveland was con demned, regardless of party, by all decent people. The disgust and con tempt so generally expressed, especial ly by leaders of his own party, it was expected would soon drive him into the obscurity suited for minds of his calibre, and it did for some time. Foraker, however, was too nseful a man to certain interests to be allowed to be laid aside, and that element, in spite of the vehement protests of the best men of the republican party, forced him again to thefront, until to day he stands forth as the champion and defender of the high-minded and strenuous .Roosevelt, and incidentally puts in an occasional friendly word for the interests that had done so much for him In his own state. His proposed amendment to the Rherman anti-trust laws is one of the most Ill-timed and disconcerting moves ever made by a supposed supporter of a presidential candidate, and while there is a well grounded belief that it was not altogether a surprise to the president, the storm of indignation it has aroused throughout the country has carried consternation into the inner councils of the republican party. This disturbed feeling was plainly evident when Attorney-Gteneral Knox. In direct violation of all our political and governmental traditions, made a statement through the press disclaim ing any connection with the Foraker amendment, and in no uncertain lan guage, condemning its intentions. The eight of a member of the presi dent's cabinet boldly denouncing through the public press a measur that' is f undor consideration bv one ef the highest legislative bodies of the nation is certainly something strange, and, in fact, startling In its possibili ties. It causes to glide into ' one's memor shadowy pictures of scenes in times long past a Cromwell . dis missing a parliament; a Bonaparte condemning a council. I Imagine Roosevelt entering the senate chamber, accompanied by a "bunch" of his rough riders, and para phrasing Cromwell's words to Sh. Henry Vane, crying, "Ha, Sir Fire Alarm I Oh, Sir Fire Alarm t the Iord deliver m from Sir -Fire Alarm For aker!" and then having his men shoo out the aged senators like a flock of old hens, good for nothing but cack Hng,lock the doors and put th keys in his pocket. Of course there is not much need to lay awake nights worrying over such things happening not just yet the people are not quite educated np to that standard to-day. But who can tell what will happen a few years hence? We are certainly rapid ly advancing -along the lines of imperialism. and, while for a short time we may call our ruler the president. HIS powers are getting more and more those-of an emperor, and anyhow It's merely the difference of a name, whether he is president or emperor as long as he is the ruling power., To a student of our national his tory the careless iudifference -of the people to the continual increase of the president's authority during the last two administrations 1 in striking con trast to the Jealous watchfulness of the people of all previous administra tions. Ten years ago we had-no thought of colonies or foreign connections. To-day we have possession In va rious 'parts of the world, some are thousands of miles from our shores. We have . colonies where we have been and are iust as brutally crush ing out the liberty loving aspirations of the people as are our dear and liv ing kinsmen, the English, are doing to the Irish, and the Boers. The men who laid the foundations of our government advised us In par ticular against "entangling alliances" with foreign powers. Yet to-day we are in alliance with the nation most hated and feared by the patriots, and we find our government, to please that nation, almost openly threatening a country that has always shown a most friendly feeling toward us. Is it the people who are doing this, or la It a government too strong for them to control? Is it the1 American people that favor this country mixing Into the mesa made by England and her half baked Asiatic tool, Japan, and siding with that arch-hypocrite of nations, Eng land, against Russia, that was our steadfast friend in our hour of need, and placed us in iwich a position that in the coming .war it will be simply a question of but a few . weeks be fore this country will be entangled in the quarrel? Again I ask, is it the people? If it Is not the people, what are they, tbe people going , to do about It? GRIFFIN. TIMELY TOPICS. J. (J. Jackie & Sons' mid-winter clearing shoe sale is still on.

The vegetable boiled over and the fumes of the burning matter suffieated the sleenlne nvoman. The warehouse of the 1 American, Witch Hazel company, of New York situated near the passenger etatlon in Chester, was. burned yesterday with its contents, including about 400 bar rels of witch hazel extract. The build ing, which was of wood was 120 feet by 30, two and one-half stories high, with an ell one and one-half stories high and 100 feet long. Ten new stills had Just been added to the building, and nothing could be done toward ex tinguishing the fire. The origin of the Are Is a mystery. While the Hartford Insurance com panies were bemoaning their losses ia the Baltimore fire yesterday, the Un derwood Typewriter company was thinking of it as a stroke of luck. Among the buildin&s destroyed by the fire was the main office building. of the Baltimore & Ohid railroad. Yesterday the railroad company wired the type writer company, ordering 200 ' type writers Immediately, to take the place of those destroyed.
