agreed wltb Dismarck to put tbs weights

and simplify ths coinage aad issuance of

tborlss tbs German imperial government
to coin and issus ail tbe money or tns

Hupposing those German ambassadors

to forego tbelr prerogative of coining

STAND UP FOR THE FLAG
Ws bear aod read much thess days
about It being ths duty of svery Ameri
can citlon to "stand up for tbs flag."
As a rule tbat sentiment Is all right, as
generally understood, But if it means
tbatlt Is tbs duty of every citizen to en-
dorse and uphold tbe wicked acta of
those wbo happen to bavs control of the
flag at any . particular time, then tbe
sentiment contains tbe death knell of
our republic. In viewing tbe object les
sons that bave been given within the
lost three years tbe graveet apprehen
sions of as early diseolution of our form
of government are justified. Within the
time above mentioned we bave bad aa
objsct lessoa showing the depth of the
root of party Idolatry bas attained is

Suppose that in 1000 the republican
parts-leaders in tbeir national couven
tlon should declare tbat tbe president of
ths United Rtates bas ths full power of

or all of sucb power as hs may see Hi,
and that MoKlnley should then at ones
proclaim bis dictatorship, and being the
oommander in chief ol our army and
navy, us tbsm and tbs flag to support
himself in ths nswlv assumed Dosltlon.
Now, In ths light ol ths object lessons of
tns last tnree years, wbat would repub
lican idolaters say and do? Tbey would
not bavs tbs Declaration of Indepen
dence and our constitution to trample
under tbelr feet, for tbs leaders bavs al

I am awars this, In a sense, seems

wben in tbeir proper places. There is
an old law still in binding force tbat
prohibits svery person from saying
"stand on for ths flag, right or wrong."
It reads, "thou shall have no otbsr

we tbat oatan gets so rasny tbristians,
