Tb very hot cant a that ba been
going among republican oongreeemen
for Toot Reed' place a Cear of tb
bona waa thrown Into confusion Inst
week when It waa announced by eonie of
ttoed'a friend that some of thee partiee
would better atop and ruQ'xit that Reed
bad gone to Europe for a three month's
vacation and bad not banded in hie res
ignation a a member of tb bona.
Mark llanna hurried totb Whit House
end a consultation was held with Napol
ton McKlnloy. Tb Washington goslps
are now saying that Heed doe not In
tend to resign and that b let th word
go out to throw his opponent into con
fusion. Tber will be no happy time for
Mack and Mark If Heed etaya in the
bous and heads the republican recalcit
rant who ar fighting tb administra
tion imperialist policy. Tber area
whole lot of those fellow and tbey are
for the most part, the old wheel borses,
The administration has been calling
the Filipinos "rebels." Last week an
occaesloo arose wbon It bad to decide
whether they were or not. Home twenty
of theee "rebels" came to Baa Francisco
and under instructions from Washing
ton they were prohibited from landing
because tbey were "aliens" and came
tindor the contract labor law. Now II
the Filipinos are "aliena" and are not
aubject nor citlsen of the United
ytatea, it' is very clear that thoy are no t
"rebels" and cannot be. What sort of
busluees Is McKlnley In when be sends
an army 7,000 mile to establish a gov
ornmeut ov er "aliens"? There Is another
thing about those Filipinos. We bought
and paid for them at til. a bead. Now
if we can't bring them Into the United
8tute, wbnt was the use of buying
The dUpatck from the Philippines
aay that there Is n disagreement between
MuKiuhiy's vUltiag statesmen known at
the Filipino oommiiMlon and Otis. The
truth about this whole matter might as
well be told. The reform leaders have
tinea told In the strictest confidence
many things that tbey have notln
eriittd to, make ublk, Tbey come
from officer of 'the army an4 navy
whoa positions would b endangered il
it were knuan that they bad talked.
The way It is, eeurtuiarliat are thnmt
sued la or tao raw. Ilsrehiuus
writer who will never divulge lhaourre
t bis iMtormatlua, hot even if he has to
peed the rt of hi days la jell fur not
doing .
A soon aa Merrllt landed la the
I'killppln there wasaeiak lta
kirn and Owy, Merrill' erdre and
temperement w r In direct opposition
to lb M of tkiaey ia regard to the
way that Afuiealda ad th I ilipino
abontd b treated, The vacillating
MekiaWy eoald not master up r
ta take tk '! l 4tKr and finally
mtnlndoed that the b-t way Mot II
waa to ead Merrlt In INsrla, al.rrtl bad
no bna la Fart, a ad waa not a
taemhef f tb rtwUiaa l make the
treaty ol jwore wlthCpala. Tber waa
nothing for him to do there. It was
only a little achem to get Merrltt out of
tb I'biiipplns. Tb scheme worked
and Merrltt took atrlparound the world
at th xpns of the people and then
retired into "InoxfHou deseutude" at
New York where be ba remained rer
since doing nothing but engaging In lit
tle plot against Mile.
After that Otis took bold. It was not
long until b and Dewey wer at word'i
point. Dewey knew that th trouble
could be settled and tb Filipino mad
our fast friends instead of our eternal
enemies, but Otis wa for war and un
conditional aurrender, Tb altuatlon
grw to be tb earn a it wa between
Merrltt and Dewey. Hut tbl time
Dewey concluded that bl advice and
council bad no influence on McKlnley
and Mark lianna, so be thought tb
best thing to do this tim waa for him
to come bom.
Now it seems that another feud las
broken out. This tim it is between the
members of tb McKlnley' commission
er and Otis. Tb only explanation
that seems at all plausible Is that Otis
receive different orders orders that
(onfllct with tb proclamation issued by
tb commission. Who will com out
ahead? It will b0tl torn bactb
backing of ' Mark llanna. Tb next
thing that w will bear I that tb com
mission has started forborne,
Tber i nothing certain to be learned
from th censored dispatcbee given out
by th Washington author! tie. Tb
lost news given out officially wa gn.
rally beaded by tb telegraph editor
"Filipino pUased with wbat tb gorsrn
meut offered them," but special dis
patches aent to tb New York lierald
aay that tb envo;s from Aguinaldo re
jected every proposition mad to Unjm,
saying: "Tb ruit of tb present plan
would be that tb American would be
at tb bead of every department of gov
ernment,and tb Filipino's tenure of office
would depend upon tbe will of tb Amer
ican. That mean that tbl I an Amer
ican colony. Yon bar adopted tk im
perial policy. Wby talk over matters
any further." '
Tbe war in tb Philippine, including
tb $30,000,000 paid to Spain, ba cost
us 08,7OO,OOO. For tb next six
months atleaat, it will coat ua $10,000,.
000 a month. Tb volunteer are to be
returned and paid off and regulars are
to be sent to take their places. A big
deficit is being piled up and another
bond lesue is already In sight.
One of tb most intelligent Cubans In
speaking of the situation said that the
people of Cuba are getting sus
picious because tbe preiiideut bad
made no specific statements In regard to
tbe future policy of the Uulted State.
Tbe Cubans are not tbe only suspicions
one. There are several million people
in this country who have suspicions
aleo, and very grave suspicions at that,
In regard to wbat Mark llanna Intends
to do with Cuba, Tbe Immense amount
of matter sent out throngh hi literary
bureau during tbe lost weok advocating
the annexation of Cuba would have a
tendency to make the moit unsuepect
ing sudplclous,

tb glorious pop state of Nebraska
leads tb whole onion, not only in tb
fighting but in tb proportion of sol

tb suffering Cubans, in tb car of it

Tb form of government that th di
patches ay is proposed by tb eommi
slon aad submitted to tb Filipino is
an exact copy of tb English govsrn-
ment in India. Tb governor appointed
by tb crown, tb council appointed in
the eatne way, on wblcu tnere may ue a
native or not just a tb Interest of tb
conquerer may dictate, jut wnow
thing Is oglib, you know, from top to
bottom. Tber i not a thing in it that
resemble th re government estab-
llshwd by our constitution.
Tbs absoiut usetessn of tb bigb
salaried major generals, of which tber
sema to ba an over production In tb
United Stats, is demonstrated by tb
course that Merrltt ha pursued, He
has done no fighting and no servle of
any kind sine tb war began. Jit ba
bad a trip around th world at tb ex
pense of tb taxpayer and for tit rest
of tb tim fa ba occupied bl luxurious
quarter at New York and engaged la
little plot agalnat bl commanding gen
eral Mile, who bo don everything for
tb army and tb soldiers of tk army
that McKlnley and Mark Manna would
permit blm to do. If tb truth i told,
Mark llanna I tb commander In chief
of tb American army and navy, and the
whole fore is need to further tb plan
of tbl beast of greed.
Tbe dispatches from Cuba contain so
many different torl tbat the American
citizen, upon whom devolve tb final
disposition of tbe question tber Invol
ved, hardly knows enough to make an
Intellignnt decision. Tb first sti-p
toward despotism is closing th avenues
of Information to the pee pie and that
stsp ba already been taken. From all
that we can learn a large part of tb
Cuban army ba refused to accept tbolr
share of the $9,000,000 which Mark
llanna offured them provided that they
turned their arm over to tbe United
Htatea, The pretended compromise that
was made with Qua. Gomez was only a
(julbble, and no concession to Cuban
views at ail. The final place of deposit,
though the guns were to be first turned
over to tbe mayors, is in Havana and
Hnntlago, both occupied by our troops.

Jefferson Ian Democrat, 1000,
Who will be nominated, McKlnley or
Iteed? My guess would b McKlnley
and for these reasons:
There will be at tbat convention four
classe of delegate and In about equal
number. One-fourtn for tbe president
at all odds and under any circumstances.
One-fourth for Iteed, or anyone to beat
McKlnley, equally determined. One
fourth wbo will strive to be on the win

can for self and friends, Oue-fourtu

Father Well of tb Democrat has gone

following from bis pen:
9 ''Trust control 'almost every thing,
but hitherto tney bav neglected tbe
churches. A church trust I badly
needed. Many of tb churches are doing
business at a toe on account of too
much competition and too many killed
laborer. Tb llttl retail organisation
must be wded oat, tbe cheap preacher
must be told to Undone wZjobs, , hr-
fourth of tb church building fcan then
be sold and th money used to enlarge
th Influence of tb trust. Under this
arrangement all tb church In Central
City could be merged Into one. A good
cathedral could b built with an auditor
lam large enough to bold 9,000 sinners
and a ball docen saint. A mighty pip
organ run by labor aviiig machinery
could be procured, A great pulpit ora
tor could be imported and for fear there
mlgbt be dlssesslon in tb congregation
be would be expected to preach every
thing except oolitic and religion,
Wouldn't tnl be a great Improvement,

discharged minister and tbslr farallUw
but no wors tor tbem tnan lor tn
thousands of good men wbo bav been
laid off on account of tb formation of

thing and w presume tbey are, other
wise thoss lo authority would do aom
tblng to atop their formation then by
all mean let u bav aohurcb trust.
Th saint are entitled to tb ood
thing of this life as well a tb ainnors.'.'
The genuine straight up and down re
publican of today, In order tob abso
lutely at tbe front of hie party ba to
repudiate all th doctrines, principle
and dogma held by repbbllcan in the
Fremont-Lincoln campaigns they bave
even to kick over tb Declaration of In

big republican -imperialistic meeting in
Chicago a week ago lost Sunday, aad

greater falsehood palmed off by the
Devil on a credulous world ' tnan the

American people for pver a century and

IM ths party either restore to It the
