I Denver Jan. 5,000 people gathered at tin coliseum to hear the address of colonel William j. Bryan i on expansion. Paid the speaker f a the Iti tells us that i a the King wanted Tho Vineyard of Nabob and was sorely Jiri Evod because the owner thereof 1 d to part with the inheritance of mrs.

And what was the result when the King went Forth to take Possession. Elijah that Brave old Prophet of the Early Days met him and pronounced inst him the Bonito a in the place d the blood of Nail thy blood even tence of the where the dogs Iti. Both shall dogs la f i a neither his own exalted position nor the lowly station of his victim could save him f re in the a % a a j of outraged Justice. His Ca was tried in a court where neither vat a Bor rank nor Power can is the track Pressor. A wars of Conquest have their origin in covetousness and the history of the human race has been written in characters of blood because rulers have looked with longing eyes upon the lands of others. Covetousness is prone to seek the Aid of false pretence to carry out its plan but what it can not secure by persuasion it takes by the sword. A senator tellers amendment to the intervention resolutions saved the cubans from the covetousness of those who Are so anxious to secure Possession of the Island that they Are willing to deny the truth of the declaration of our own Congress that a the people of Cuba Are and of right ought to be a or. Bryan then proceeded to apply the Story of Naboth to the philippine question and argued hat a War of Conquest would be wrong in principle As Well As expensive and As harmful to the people of the United states As to the filipinos. He spoke at considerable length and concluded As follows a imperialism might expand the nations territory but it would contract the nations purpose. It is not a step Forward toward a broader destiny it is a step backward toward the narrow views of Kings and emperors. A Cdr. Taylor has aptly expressed it in his a Creed of the Flag a when he asks a shall we turn to the old world again with the penitent prodigals cry a i answer never. This Republic is not a wayward son it has not spent its substance in riotous living it is not ready to retrace its Steps and with shamed face and trembling voice solicit an Humble place among the servants of Royalty. It has not sinned against heaven and god Grant that the crowned Heads of Europe May never have occasion to kill the fatted calf to commemorate its return from Reliance upon the will of the people to dependence upon the authority which flows from regal birth or Superior Force. A we cannot afford to enter upon a colonial policy. The theory upon which a government is built is a matter of vital importance. The National idea has a controlling influence upon the thought and character of the people. Our National idea is self government and unless we Are ready to abandon that idea forever we cannot ignore it in dealing with the filipinos. A that idea is entwined with our traditions it permeated our history it is a part of our literature. That idea has Given eloquence to the orator and inspiration to the poet. Take from our National hymns the three words free Freedom and Liberty and they would be As meaningless As would be our Flag if robbed of its red White and Blue. A other nations May dream of wars of Conquest and of Distant dependencies governed by exterior Force not so with the United states. The fruits of imperialism be they bitter or Sweet must be left to the subjects of Mon firt is. Tills is the one tree on which the citizens of a Republic May not partake.

Three important amendments were adopted one creates a judge advocate s corps another abolishes prize Money and a third provides for the retirement on three quarters of enlisted and Petty officers in the Navy after 30 years service.
