enunciate the principles upon which It
made its fight in 18UG and 19C0, the ar

those campaigns. If this argument

...to the party's position on the tariff

'iucMIon of imperialism.
Tho democratic party has repeatedly
met defeat on the tariff question; and
yet the democratic leaders did not
think it advisable to abandon the posi

THE GUKSHAM LAW.
Tho Oresharu luw, as it is called, was
not a legislative enactment, but mere
ly the statement of a principle by au
Englishman by the name of Gresham
when le was at the head of the treas
ury department. It was to the effect
that tl s cheaper coin would drive out
the expensive coin, for the' reason that
the mi re expensive coin would be ex
ported or melted for use In the arts,
while the cheaper coin would be cir
culated among the people. This had
reference to clipped coins, or coins
that hud been worn out by use. To
apply It to bimetallism the ratio must
be taken Into consideration, it tne
legal ratio In this country was less
than the legal ratio in Europe, the
under-valued coin would either remain
her at a premium or would be ex
ported, but as most of the coined sii
ver of the world circulates at a ratio
more favorable to silver than ours, bl-
metalliaU contend that silver would
not drive gold out.
LA DOR BILLS POSTPONED.

postponed consideration of the bill
to abolish government injunction and

The republican party Is completely

the republican leaders. How long will

A NARROW ESCAPE.
A correspondent for the New York
Tribune called upon Judge llaktr April
24 and sought to obtain snnio state
ment from this presidential candidato
concerning his views upon public
questions. Tho Tribune correspondent
reports Judge Parker as saying:
"I can't for the life of me under
stand why all these newspapers keep
sending their representatives after me
continually when they know I will
have nothing to say to any of them
upon any of these public questions.
Personally, I want to treat them all
courteoiiKly and In a friendly way, but
they want something more than 1 can
give. A reporter of a well known New
York paper camped on my place re
cently, and most every day for a time,
and, of course, got nothing. But I was
badly caught by a well known woman
reporter tho other day. She was wait
Ing for me without my knowledge, and
I walked right in tho hall where she
was. I was a bit afraid of her too,
knowing her methods, fearing what
she might say. But, of course, she got
nothing of. importance and I find no
reason to complain of her report."

RtAL rr'.ENIN3 OF DEMOCRATIC
The Schedules That Now Shelter fx-
toitionate Trusts Must De Rivised
No Honest Business Will Suffer
Republican Opposition to Change.
The Republican ucwipapcrs and
congressman have boon busy all tr.e
winter trying to make the voters be
lieve that If the Homocrats are suc
cessful they will at once Inaugurate
free trade by repealing- the Pinley
bill. In tho first place even if tho
Democrats fleet their candidate for
president and a majority of tho House
of Representatives, tho Senate would
still be Republican even If tho Demo
crats carrlod the legislatures of all the
doubtful states that elect senators
who will take their soots on March
4, 1903. The Republican majority of
the Senate will probably oppose any
tariff reform, but will surely vote
down any radical proposition, so that
bugbear is disposed of.
In tho next place the Democrats,
when in power, however much they
would like to remit taxation, must
raise enough revenue to carry on the
government and more than half the
receipts must come from duties on Im
ports. When the Supremo court de
cided that an Income tax, as levied
by the Democrats in 1S94, wns uncon
stltutional, that derision shut out all
possibility of reducing tho tariff be
low what would raise enough revonuo
for tho government, honestly admlnls
terod. There are only two other moth
ods of taxation, the Internal revenue
and direct taxes, according to the
population of each state. The latter
tax would bo unfair, beeauso unequal.
and could not therefore be considered
'lo increase tho internal revenue
taxes Is unpopular and to Impose new
taxes such as those collected during
the Spanish war, would meet as much
opposition from the Republican sen
ate as tariff reform would, for their
friends tho banks and other corpora
tlons, would pay their share and that
would bo heresy to the Republican
leaders. It remains, therefore, to nr
range the tariff taxes so that they will
burden the taxpayers as littlo as pos
slble and yet produce enough revenue,
There are several schedules that
would doubtless receive heroic treat
ment If the Democrats had full power.
Tho high protection the trusts now
enjoy, and that gives these corpora
tions a monopoly of the American
market would bo repealed or greatly
modified. Those articles which nre
Bold by the corporations cheaper
abroad than here, would be the first
to bo cut down, so that the fear of
competition would force the trusts to
reduce prices. .The steel trust is tho
most conspicuous of the trusts that Is
sheltered by the tariff and tho duty
on nails, barbed wire, steel rails, and
perhaps some other products would
be greatly reduced nnd even In ex
tremo cases placed upon tho freo list.
Cultivators, plows, axos, table knives
horseshoe nails, sewing machines, har
ness snaps, meat chopers, borax, gun
powder, raisin seeders, rakes, sad
Irons, saws, shovels, sugar and numer
ous other products are sold for ox
port from 10 to 100 per cent cheaper
than tho price paid by our own people.
Such inequalities it will bo the duty
of the Democrats when intrusted with
power to reform.
It has been suggested by one of the
most clear-headed Democrats in tho
country that to prevent the disturb'
ance to business that might result
from general tariff reform that sepa
rate bills bo passed reducing the duty
on products that nn exorbitant profit
is charged for. That program would
not disturb any business but that of
the particular trust affected, nor re-
quire other taxes to be imposed to
provide for a deficiency 4n tho rove
nue, for there is no revonuo from
such articles, there being compara
lively nono Imported. It must bo
remembered that the Republican lead
era, have, by allowing tho trusts to
dictate tho tariff schedules, built up
by an enormous monoMily In many
products and It will require care, time
and caution for full reform nnd to
release the people from the tariff tax

No sensible inan supposes that tho

To criminally prosecute even one of

any Interference from the present ad

no Intention of 'running amuck"

Reciprocity Is Defeated By the Repub
Reciprocity has been defeated by
those who were supposed to bo Its
friends and principally by President
RoohovcU. Before he became presi
dent he was an earnest advocate of
reciprocity, as before ho becanio
prominent in public life he was an
ardent tariff reformer, but both reci
procity and tariff reform have been
discarded by him for political pro
ferment. The ambitious politician
must ever be subservient o tho ma
jority faction of his party, or risk be
ing defeated. Unlike the statesman
who stands boldly for what is for the
best Interest of all, If his own politi
cal fortunes sutler for the time. When
the Protective Tariff League demand
ed that President Roosevelt "stand
pat" and threatened reprisals If he did
otherwise, he soon reversed his stump
speeches of 1U03, In which ho hnd
much to say about tariff revision and
has, "let well enough alone" ever
since. Not a word has President
Roosevelt uttered to encourage Gov

The question is will the thousands
of business men who petitioned for
reciprocity submit to being denied It
by tho Republican leaders nnd vote
to bind the monopoly yoke moro firm
ly about their necks? How would
the 'stand patters" faro if tho busi
ness men should rebel ond vote
against iho trust and monopoly
party? In the Massachusetts Repub
lican stato convention, Just held, there
were nbout 10 per cent of the dele
gates who followed Mr. Foss In favor
of reciprocity. If ten per cent of the
Republican voters of the state should
resolve to vote against the Republi
cans it would more than reverse the
majority at the last election. In Iowa
the samo proportion would allow the
Democrats to prevail. These aro two
of the strongest Republican states and
a much less percentage of change
would wipe out the Republican major
ity In every state but Vermont.
There are vast possibilities In this
reciprocity movement, the more f.O as
it touches the tender spot the pocket
of those who demand It and party
ll!:cs are much more lax than In for
Taxing the Filipinos.
Tho poverty of t,'io Filipinos has
been constantly kept before us by
Governor, now Secretary Tats, and In
and out of season ho has been plead
Ing with Congress for a reduction ol
the tariff and for permission to Issue
bonis so that large public Improve
ments might stimulate trade. Now
from St. Louis comes the Information
that the expenditure of f 1.000.000 will
be probably made for the Philippine
exhibit at the St. lxuis exposition
What, ns originally planned, wns to
cost $2,0,000 already had approached
tho million mark nnd thnt It will re
quire S'lOO.ooo to curry on the Philip
pine exhibit, including all salaries and
at the close of the fair transport tho
nntlves back to the Islands.
With thousands of Filipinos on the
verge of starving It would seem to bo
a crime to expend the money wrung
from them by taxation to make an ex
hibit so much beyond their means.
The War Department nnd the Philip
pine Commission appear to bo the of
ficials who have authorized this un
called for expenditure nnd nn Investi
gation would doubtless excise scan
dal of magnitude. Tho henrtlessaess
of such an enormous wasto of money
Is apparent when nt the same time
bonds or certificates of Indebtedness

ippine government from bankruptcy,
which will have to be repaid by In
creased taxation. That tho Filipinos
will gain anything by the grout expen
diture Is so doubtful that It c.tanot be
believed that the exhibit has been
undertaken for their benefit. There
must be nn exploiting syndicate or
