The full text of the decree of autonomy
baa at laat been publiabed In thla ooun
try. '' That which we bad before eurmlaed

questionable faot; it givea eoormoua

pleaaee the Governor-General to dlaaolve

particular reatrlctlona of the decree,' it
may be aald gooerally that there are ao
many obatocloa to free leglalatiou on
the part of the propoeod Cubaa Parlia
ment that one can well understand 811
gasta'a frauk atatomcnt that the first
concern haa been "to affirm and
strengthen the bond of sovereignty,"
and to aee to It that "the central au
thority la lu no wiao leaaened or weak

on free government contained In the Jlo
cree Iteult, it is to be noted that the do
creu la still to receive the approval of
the Bpaulah'Cortea, and that it Unot
absolutely certain that thla oppiovul
will be given. i Moreovur, there is no
guarautee whatever that the decree,
evon if ratified, may not be withdrawn
at any time In the future at the will of
the Ministry and the Cortes, All those

TUH DIBMKMIIKKMKNT OP CHINA
Comparatively little attention has
been given to the recent troublea In the
Orient by the press ofjthla country, ex
cept aa 0 matter of news. Tha commer
cial effect of audi a violation of tb laws
of nation as la proposijd by tho great
powers In the case of China, baa scarcely
been mentioned. Hwiutor Teller of Col
orado, a man of wblo expcrlonca and
well versed In International law says in
un Interview Just published that tb op
orations now going on In the Orient
threatens our commercial Interest and
eventually the very txlatcuce of our nn
tiou. liusays!
"If thla dismemberment la penult led
our treaties with China will fall and wa
ahull have to deal nnnw with tlio pow
er who take possession of th ('hliiose
territory. Russia will get th biggest
slice and If she la not particularly a
competitor of oure now, alio will then be
come one.
"After tha dismemberment ba 00
ourrod we cunnot say to the govern
merit that have taken possession of
China that we have certain treaty rights,
They will reply that there is no China
and therefor no treaties, Hut that la
not tho worst of It. If thla dismember
ment occurs, th people of what la now
China will become the producer for the
whole world. A competitor In produc
tion ami tradewill b introduced against
which we or no other people can success
fully contend, The economic conditions
ol the whole world will bo changed,
"The people of China have a greater
power of production than any other like
number ol people in ine worn;, ah mcy
need la to ba aroused to th effort and
to have their effort properly directed,
Inspired by enterprise and energy of
Germany and Russia, tbey would pro
duce ao cheaply tliat uier wouio ue no
competition with them, Tho commerce
and wealth of other nations would
shrivel up, Russia with her dominion
extended over tho greater part of China,
would practically overrun theenrth,
"It Is against the Interest of nations,
perhaps even threatening to our tilvillxn
lion, to have China dlsmembored. It
would be hs destructive to Great Hrltiiln
as It would be to us, When Ids said
that the United Btales cannot Interfere,
it ahould bo understood what a failure
to Interfere will Involve, Tho dismem
berment of Chlm. moans the cutting off
of our commerce In the Orient and the
introduction of a competitor who will
deprive ns of tho commerce of the rest of
tho world and even supply our own peo
ple,
"We cannot permit thia without sink
lug to tho position of a third or fourth
rate nation, helnless.deirraded and with
out influence among tha nations of the
earth. We would have to submit to the
domination of an absolutism among the
nations; our own Institutions would
take on a decline and the civilization
represented by this government and the
KimlisU government would cease pro
griss. We would suffer mora than anv
other people. We have more involved
and would be more diroetly injured.
"His folly, then-fore, to Bay that we
ahould have nothing to any. It la our
duty to prevent thla dismemberment ol
t.'hlna, oa It 18 mat Ol tirons nrnum.
We should ioln with Great Rritain
In a notice to Russia and Germany that
the dismemberment of China will not be
permitted. 4)ven without Ureut Hrltain
we should give auch notice. Almost our
very exlatfnee aa a nation Is Involved.
W ahould have nothing more than a
more exlatonoa ahould we permit It."
It la plaluly the object of tha govern
miuta that are taking poaaeaaion of
China to levy tribute from the Chlneae
people. At preaent the Chinese govern
ment baa no bonded debt. Aa aoon as
It become a part of tha Kuropeao na
tioua It will be neovaaary for the Chlneae
to pay thair ahare, and probably mora
than their ahare, of tha lutareat, dabte,
and currant expenaee of the Kuropaan

We have no sympathy with the people

one person in three thousand, that 1 the
proportion of prisoners, can throw all
the other out of work, tho many can
not no much, Indiana haa taken the
work away from her prlaonera and they
are now begging for work of some kind.
The men who set themselves to work are
not the oneu fighting tho system. Ills
the fellows who want to do the work for
wages for some other fellow who must
furnish the brain und capital. There Is
no possible way that prlsuneracuu affect
the wages of one laboring person in a

and dairy, on railroad and slope, in tho
mines, in the olllcea and iu the profes
sions, all these classes are relieved more
or less from taxation by making the
prisoner work at something. We would
rather make the prisoner work und earn
their own living, rather than be com
pelled to earn our own living and their
too, Prisoners can and ahould bo made

of a young man. The devil agreed to
furnish uli the money the young man
could spend, and if he did not speud It
aa fast aa it oame bia soul waa to be
tbe forfeit. For aeveral yeara tbe young
man manigod to keep ahead of the
game by the aid of wine, women and
fast horses, but finally the fiend sent
him a tremendous aum, which seemed
utterly impossible to get rid of, when
the young muu, aa a lust resort, started
a newspaper. At tbe eud of tbreo
months the devil began to growl, at
tho end of nine month be waa sad, and
at tho end of a year he owuod up dead
broke. Tbe paper went up, but a soul
waa saved. Custer County Chief,
