tor in Manila would not allow tt to bft

Otis' ordor. The Western Union com
pany Informed the sender of the me
age of it fate in the following word:
y "Your raossoge reached Manila all right
but it cannot be delivered at it I beld
by the government censor."
A great deal of Indignation bae boen
expressed by those people and even they
have begun to enquire whether thla la
anylonger a free government. Lot them
top and think a moment. Suppos
ucb a nwssnge a that bad boon ont to

would not every one of those pet eon
donouno It a treason? Can It be any
thing different now? If we are to carry
on thl war, such thing a that of
; course cannot be permitted. ' The only
reasonable course to pureue I to decide
first whether thl war I to be Indefinite

John T. McCutchoon I the most re
liable correspondent in the Philippine.
He baa been there from the first and bia
report have al way been accurate and
made without prejudice. In a cable
gram dated Manila, April '16,' he aayi:
"Gen, Lawton made a tatement today,
the publication of which be authorized,
lie laid that in hi opinion it would be
necessary for the United State to vend
100,000 troop to the Philippine (aland
if the native continued hostile, lie aaid
that it wa essential to garrison all the
cities captured or that are to be cap
" tared in the futjure operation if the lu
aurroctiorwasto be put down. Gen.
Lawtou'e opinion I given a great deal
of weight among the officer' here,
They aay hi wide experience with guer-
. rill warfare make him a moat capable

The remarkable thing 'about thla ea

The latest new from Manila Indicate
that a change of policy toward the
Filipinos ha been Inaugerated. The
dlpatcbe ay that a body of native
bav met and propose negotiation with
Agulnaldo, No aucb meeting could have
been beld without the pormlsnlon of Goti,
Otis for martial law I in force in Manila
and no body of native would have dared
to get together without hi authority.
It i probable that tb thing was don
by tbe direct order of Gen. Otis. Tbi
Is a complete change of front, for tbe
administration would not heretofore
permit any recognition at all of tb In
surgents. Perbap McKlnloy Is coming
to bis one at lat.
A dispatch from Dewey state! that tbe
Filipino captured on Llou tenant and
fourteen noncommissioned officer and
seamen belonging to tbe Yorktown.
They were making an attempt to reacue
eighty BpaniHb soldier, three officer
and two priests, who were surrounded
by 400 insurgent. One of the seamun
waa from Lincoln. Ilia name Is Cbarloa

Miles a liar. It now turna out that
Miles waa not a liar, but a brave soldier
seaklng to protect tha health and lives
of tbe army, and that tha war depart
meat waa so Indifferent to ths fata of the
soldiers; that it etippreMad tha report of

that matter. It eeema to tbe Indepen
dent that tbe time haa come to release
the men who know tbe truth about that
affair from the pledge of secreay. Every
one oan see that after tbe platform had
been printed in all tbe papors with those
words added to it, that any attempt
during the campaign to rectify tbe
matter would have been disastrous.
The cose is very difforentnow. The artl
cle in tbe Journal and Democrat is a
Tbe original draft of the Chicago plat
form did not contain the redemption
clause. That clause waa Inserted to
please an influential member of tbe com
mittee after tbe platform was submitted.
Tbe following Is tbe pnrngrapb relating
to tbi subject, showing how It stood as
originally written, and after tbe addi
tion of the objectionable clause:
Congress alone ban the power to boln
and issue money, and President Jackson
declared that this power could not be
delegated to corporations or Individ
uals. We, therefore, denounce tbe issu
ance of notes intended to circulate aa
money by national banks a in deroga
tion of the constitution, and we demand
that ail paper which is made a le?al ten
der for public and private debts, or
which I receivable for due to the United
State, shall be issued by the govern
ment of tb United State (and shall be
redeemable In coin.) !
Tbe words eucloaed In parenthesis are
tbe one that 'were inserted. The ab
surdity of such a declaration is appar
ent when it iejremembered that all money
issued by the government is sovereign
and stand on precisely tb same basis,
regardless of tbe material of which it I
composed. A preceding clause expressed
this principal in the following language:
We are opposed to th policy an(j prafl-!
ties of surrendering to the holders of tb
obligation of tbe United States the op
tion reserved by law to tbe government
of redeeming such obligations In either
silver coin or gold coin.
That Is to say, no public creditor shall
have tbe right, by private contract, cus
tom, or In any other way, to destroy
the value of any kind of money or obli
gation authorized and issued by the gov
ernment. 1 ; ,
Th force and effect of redeeming one
kind of money with another kind even
admitting that such an absurdity could
come within the domain of common
sense was not clearly undertsood
by all the people at the time of
adoption of the Cliloago platform. If tt
had bn, th redemption clause would
have been rcjiictcd by a unanimous" vote
of the convention. This, redemption
trick Is an old scheme of the goldbug
party, invented and banded down to
tbem by their master, tbe Ilotbsubild.
It intention I, and always has been, to
make gold the money of final redemp
tion, and tfana constitute gold tbe only
actual money In the world. For, money
that ha to be "redeemed" in some other
kind of money la not money at all, but
a credit token.
Wethorefore repeat bat wo have
heretofore declared, that 110 Ufib Shy
lock trick, no such solecism, no such
Idiotic noiiHense, will ever again appear
in a democratic platform. If the re
demption eluuse bad not been interjected
into the Chicago platform we would
have elected Mr. liryan In 180ft, in spite
of Mark Hanua's corrupting millions
and wholesale coercion by the banks and
dependent commercial and manufactur .

NOT THEIR FAULT -
Every true American feela a thrill pf
prldo when contemplating tbe patriot
ism Bod valor of tbe American soldier
am sailor. The defenders of our flag
have demonstrated that on every bat
tlefield they are heroes, on every sea tbe
bravest of tha brave.
That they are now made to bring
shame on their country la no fault of
theirs. The war they enlisted to fight Is
over, ana na oeen lor monms. ins
work they undertook waa performed in
a inanuer that won for tbem imperish
able renown. Tbe purpose of their en
listment being acbioved, tbey should
have been returned to their homes and
friends. Denever Republican.
