They are going to need all they can get this fall» too. Gov. Stanley, believing that Parsons could control more votes than Clay Center, ordered the new asylum to be built at the former place. “ The cries of those starving people of India, will we believe, in the ears of a just God, sound the death knell of the nation that is responsible for their suffering, and the sight of their emanciat-ed and shrunken forms presage the decay that ought to come to those whose greed has brought this horror upon them. The sort of “benevolent assimilation” going on in the Philippines is well expressed in a letter received this week from Manila. Among other things the letter says: “After two years of American reign in Manila, people are harder driven to make a living than ever before.” “The curse of military despotism has about worn the people of Manila out.” That is the way the “subjects” of one of our “colonies” feels toward the government. —The Western Advocate.

The governor and his friends are cited to the Sulu agreement, the violated compact with the Filipinos, the Porto Rican tariff and the Havana post office.

BAKXB, t . t/. GALIFORNIA The last session of congress demon strated one fact very clearly, and that is that the lower house can get along somehow without a czar, and in fact with practically no one in the speaker’s chair. With great apparent relish some republican papers announce "the overthrow of the Transvaal republic. Another evidence of growing imperialistic sentiment among the followers Mark Hanna. In the apportionment of state of-licers by the State committees, the Populists were given the State Auditor and the best condidate named is H. N. Boyd, of Belleville, Republic county, up in the 5th district, and that he must be good is best shown by his having not only the endorsement of their Pop county convention but also the Democratic convention. He is an old soldier and formerly Assistant Adjutant General of this state. "Would be a good campaigner and an honor to the office. —Hays City Free Press.

LUDWIGK, M¿r. The republican who can get any satisfaction out of the returns from Oregon, is easily satisfied. Normanly Oregon is a good strong republican state, and while the state officers and both congressmen were elected by the republicans their average majorities were materially reduced, and the republicans have not had as small a majority in the legislature for twenty years. ~ George McNeice, who was clamoring so loudly for Aguinaldo’s scalp about a year ago, is now pronouncing anathemas upon this government for the kind of civilization it has taken to its island possessions. It is rather hard on the natives, but if the result opens the eyes of men who were unable to reason from cause to effect, then the Philippine crime shall not have been _ wholly in vain. Kansas’ insurance department turned into the state treasury last year the sum of *100,580.24. In making mention of this fact you can hardly expect republican newspapers to give any credit to the populist party, which at the special session of 1898 passed the law which taxed the insurance companies and made this handsome revenue possible. Before another legislature convenes in Kansas, this act of the special session will have added nearly *200,000 to the revenues of the state—and the entire expense of that special session was less than *30,000. Even if the court of visitation law was declared unconstitutional by the republican judges of the supreme court, there still remains a great deal to the credit of tne special session.—Kansas Populist.

A.O.P AT.A. lopexa ».a A republican said to us the the other day, “I never voted for a democrat or a populist in my life, but if Abraham Lincoln was a republican then McKinley is not, and he will not get my vote this year.—The Western Advocate. June 2nd the lower house of Congress passed a clean sweeping, broad guage anti-trust bill with only one solitary dissenting vote, which knocks to atoms the demo-pop thunder-mug on trusts. Oh, what will the Bryanites do now?—Ex. What will they do? Why they will laifeh at such fellows as you for your credulity and defy you to show a single instance where that law has been successfully invoked against any trust. That’s what the demo-pops will do. SAY, PAPA. The Scandia Journal man’s credulity is only equaled by his imagination. He either believes Miat the farcical attempt by congress to pass that “antitrust” amendment was done with honest intent, or he imagines all his readers are fools. No one believes it to have been an honest attempt to correct the trust evil. The fact that it was left till the very eve of adjournment, that it was opposed by rej(tfJ)licnn9 of recognized ability, that it was brought up at a time when there was barely a quorum present, and last but not least, that such an amendment has not yet been shown to be necessary, proves beyond question that the whole thing was a grand stand play and a scheme to catch votes. The people, friend Kimball, are not to be fooled by any such claptrap as that. They know who has had control of congress for the past four years. They know, too, that if only two republicans bad been opposed to that little trick it could easily have been passed over the combined vote of the populists and democrats, and they know that Mark Hanna, who is the “whole thing” in the republican party, says that trusts are all right, anyhow.

There are hardly enough strikes in the country to suit the party of disorder and discontent.—Scandia Journal. Well, Brother McKinley, who represents the party that is causing “disorder and discontent” will probably give the Journal man some more, if he is not satisfied. ‘Say, Papa, why do so many mans come to this country?” ‘ It is because of our glorious republican institutions, my son. The poor people over there are ground down by an enormous tax of *186,000,000 to sustain a useless standing army, while here w r e depend upon our citizen soldiers in times of trouble. We are the free—” “But say, papa, I was just reading in the Kansas City Journal that the war appropriation in this country last year was over *250,00Q,000.

The republicans of Kansas, through their representative Gov. Stanley, have lain down on the propositipn to control railroads by state legislation. They say it must be done by the general government and yet they are trying to make capital out of the fact that the courts have declared the populist law unconstitutional. This is about as consistant as the average republican is But it doesn’t matter much what the republicans think, for, the next legislature will be populist and it will pro- When the Court of Visitation law was declared unconstitutional, the republican press all over the state gleefully said “pops can’t make a law that will stand in the courts.” They dolefully declare that the people are at the mercy of (he railroads because of pop-made laws. Now that Judge Hook a republican-^has declared a certain part of the prohibitory law—a republican measure—unconstitutional and left the people at the mercy (?) of the Whiskey Trust not a protest is heard. On the other hand those same fellows use the fact that whiskey houses can now send * that drummers into the state to solicit orders as an argument for a return to the onen saloon policy. They do not w r rite One of the most frequently quoted extracts from the speeches of Mr. Bryan is that wherein he comments on the following letter w ritten by President Lincoln to a Mrs. Biby, of Boston under date of November 21, 1864. I have been shown in the files of the war department a statement of the adjutant General of Massachusetts, that you are the mother of five sons who died gloriously on the field of battle. I feel how w r eak and fruitless must be any words of mine wTiich should attempt to declaim to you on the grief of a loss so overwhelming; but I cannot refrain from tendering to you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice on the alter of freedom. Yours very sincerely and respectfully, Abraham Lincoln. Mr. Bryan says of this: “\ouwill search literature in vain for a more beautiful expression .of sympathy. Republicans, imperialists, I want you to «prepare a letter to be sent by the president to some sorrowing mother tqlling that you think the trade some syn-ate will get will be worth the blood her sons spent in the purchase of Try it if you dare!
