reaches the period of strife between the
two Protestant republics. The naviga
tion act of 1661 was passed, the one
durable monument of republican legis
lation. By this famous measure goods
were to be admitted into England only
in English ships, or else In ships of
the country to which the goods De
longed. Whatever else came of It, the
navigation act made a breach In the
Dutch monopoly of the world's carry
ing trade.. An unfriendly Holland
teemed as direct a peril aa the enmity
of France or Spain, and before long It
was perceived how easily a combina
tion between Holland and Denmark, by
closing the gates of the Baltic, might
exclude England from free access to
tar, cordage, and the other prime
requisites for building and rigging her
ships. The blow at the Dutch trade
monopoly was a fresh Irritant to Dutch
pride, already embittered by the Eng

these people are American citizens

I will give $50 for each and every Abraham Lincoln principle that

viding the person accepting this offer will give me 20 for each and
every Abraham Lincoln principle that is being advocated by William
J. Bryan and his supporters. Now, my republican friends, this is a
two and a half to one proposition. If the McKinley administration is
supporting half as many true republican doctrines as Bryan and his
supporters are advocating, here is a chance for you to make some
money. Investigate this, and if you cannot make the cash balance
show up in your favor, you will gain a store of knowledge which will
be a guide for you in the coming election as to how a genuine republi
can should vote who wishes his country to remoin a republic, and who
would rather follow true republican doctrine than to follow the empty
party name. You will find that William J. Bryan comes nearer to be
ing a second Lincoln than any man who has lived since Lincoln's time.
You will see that the same arguments that were used by King George
to hold the revolutionary fathers in bondage are now being used by
the McKinley administration to hold tne people of our island posses
