O the democrats in Congress. In two weeks from last monday the fifty sixth Congress will begin its first session. For the first time in eight years the straight republicans will have Complete control of both houses. They will have a majority of nearly Twenty Over All the others in the Senate and one of thirteen in the House. Nevertheless the democrats occupy a position which with Good leadership can be made very Strong. This session will not close until the presidential Campaign is Well under Way. Everything that is done in Congress will have its effect upon that contest. For this reason the Republican managers will be cautious. They will not venture to Force through unpopular measures by the brute Power of numbers if they Are met with a vigilant resistance. They will not have a two thirds majority for the suspension of the rules in the House and they will Seldom be Able to furnish a quorum of their own. The democrats will be in the position they occupied in the Reed Congress in 1890 arid to set when by their compact and vigorous resistance to Republican class legislation they prepared the Way for the splendid Triumph of 1s92. The democratic members of the f fifty sixth Congress can make the most of this Opportunity or they can throw it away. They can make themselves in the eyes of the nation the representatives of sanity honesty Justice and intelligent National Progress or they can treat the issues that come up in the spirit of the insincere demagogue or the unpatriotic Crank. And As they decide and do. So shall they be judged. When the president sends in his message he will report certain things about the Philippines. He will say that the insurrection in Luzon has been practically suppressed that armed resistance to the forces of the United states is confined to scattered bands of guerillas that steady Progress is being made in the establishment of civil government and that we have incurred obligations to thousands of Friendly filipinos who have accepted our authority and co operated with us in building up a system of american institutions. Now How Are the democrats to Deal with that situation Are they to make Lentz their spokesman howl against accomplished facts and demand the withdrawal of oar victorious troops from the islands and the abandonment of our friends among the filipinos to be butchered by the men that assassinated Luna if they do that they leave the republicans a Clear course not Only for legislation but to the presidency. What the democrats should do in this matter is to act the part of an intelligent patriotic and courageous opposition. Let them compel their opponents to show a reason for every step taken or proposed. Let them calf for All the documents relating to philippine affairs from the beginning. Let them find out just where mistakes have been made and who is responsible for them. Let them see whether the War was necessary whether it has been prolonged by incompetency or whether Admiral Dewey was Correct in saying that a if Leonard Wood had been in command of the forces at Manila there would have been no War or if there had been one it would not have lasted More than six weeks. A that will Clear up the record of the past. When it comes to the future let the democrats resist everything that looks toward the establishment of imperialism. Let them demand the utmost possible Extension of a self govern ment to the filipinos not the Rule of fifty tribes by one but the Equality of Tagal Visayan and Macabee under the impartial Protection of the american Flag. Let them Call for the creation of an american territorial govern ment in the Philippines so that the people May feel that they Are not subject provincials but inhabitants of an integral part of the United states. The same principle will apply to Porto Rico and Hawaii and while they Are about it the democrats May As Well round out their work by calling for an orderly autonomous government for Alaska now suffering from thirty years of neglect. There will be Many other questions of almost equal importance to Deal with. A few simple principles will furnish a Safe guide to them All. Done to be a party of Mere obstruction. Done to oppose a thing merely because it is proposed by the other Side. Done to play politics. Done to do anything without a reason that can be intelligently stated. Be constructive. Let us apply these principles to another example. Last year the friends of the administration proposed to establish a standing army of 100,000 men. I he democrats very properly opposed that schem. I hey opposed it on All sorts of grounds. Most of them were satisfied to declaim against it in stump speeches filled with catchwords that it was thought would prove effective in the Campaign but which had no definite relation with the badness in hand. They finally succeeded in crippling the measure but they had produced no such impression on the mind of the country As was made in 1890 by the vigorous and genuinely argumentative attacks on the Mckinley i Ariff Bill. Now that same scheme for a permanent army of 100.000 men is going to be brought up again this Winter. How will the democrats meet it will they furbish up the of rant about the superiority of the citizen Soldier to the regular and about our ability to make armies Spring up from the ground when we need them or will they pin the administration advocates Down to exact statements about Why such a Force is wanted at this time Why if to is needed at this time it should be permanent How much it is going to Cost anti whether a smaller army might not do better work if its Best generals were not kept in the shade5 As they Are in the minority the work of the democrats will be mostly in the Way of criticism but it need not be confined to that by any Means. For instance there is the Nicaragua Ana. A determined Effort will be made by the corporate influences in control of the Republican party to delay the construction of the canal by an other year on the plea that the commission has not yet filed its final report or on some other equally specious pretext. Rut there Are Many republicans who will not take part in any such proceedings. A Bill is to be introduced on the first Day of the session providing for the immediate inauguration of work on the canal. Probably fifty republicans in the House May be relied upon to break away from party control and vote for this Bill. If the democratic vote should be solid in its favor it would pass without trouble. Thus a solid democracy would stand before the country As the Spon Sor for a great National work As against a divided Republican party. In this Way the democracy would gain political advantage and would deserve it. This is the Only Way in which such advantages can Ever be obtained. Do what is Best for the country and political capital will accumulate of itself. To try to get it by a playing politics is the surest Way of losing it. That is what Alger did. He thought he was a profound practical politician he kept his Eye on politician the time i sacrificed the Public interests to it and before he knew it he was the Dearest politician outside of the nineteenth Assembly District of new York. The people can see through humbugs pretty clearly. They Are prompt to distinguish Between the Man that opposes a measure to put his political opponents a in a Hole a and the one who due so because he honestly thinks it a bad measure and can give a reason for his belief. Let the democracy try ail things and hold fast by those which Are Good wherever they May come from. When they find a bad thing let them smash it and smash it hard. Let them not be seduced by offers of commis sary commissions and census clerkship to refrain from condemning abuses that Call for condemnation. And let them always keep in mind and before the Public a practical programme of their own which they May not be Able As the minority to carry into effect but which will give them a Good reason for asking the country to entrust them with York journal democratic
