is the record of past attempts
at establishing world empires by force.
But. It is said that we will profit by
the experience of tfcose nations and
conduct affairs differently, yet one oC
the first acts of the administration,
after acquireinjc the Philippines, was
to ask for aa increase of the regular
staading army to 100,000 men. And
why this Increase? Surely our posi
tion at home Is as safe as ever, and
these 70,000 extra men must be used to
hold from, 10 to IS million unwilling
people la subjection. Loes this look
like we are profitia by the experience
of Rome's Imperial army?
7 la en. too. look at the immediate ex
pense that is thrown on the American
tax pa per . To keep an army ia the
Philippines. It is estimateu, will cost
about $100,000,000 annually . The ex
pansionist says that the expense will
be met by levying duties on commerce
with the islands, but what will the
duty on $10,000,000 Imports amounts
to? You 'cannot constitutionally levy
aa export duty, unless such duty be
made uniform through all our terri
tory. Does that look like keeping the
American free from Imperial taxes?
There is another element relative to
the army that enters into accounL
That is the increase of our pension
roIL Today we are paying $150,000,000
for pensions to men that served thirty
years ago. How enormously will this
be increased when we remember that
It is now estimated that about nine
tenths of those who survive the Philip
pine campaigns will be placed on the
pension list as a result of injuries re
ceived! In view of all these facts can
anyone doubt that there will be ex
panses connected with such a policy?
It is said that our connection with
the Philippines will stimulate more
trade, or in the trite expression, "com
merce follows the flag." How this is
figured out is a problem to many.
There has been no instance in United
States history from which statistics
can be compiled In this respect, and
so we must go to England, the greatest
expansion practitioner of today. In
ISsSfi England's total Imports amounted
to $S 60.000.000. Of this $215,000,000
came from her colonies or 25 per cent.
Thus as the American people near
the time when they must speak upon
this momentous question, may the
words of the poet ring clearly and dis-
diactly in even' ear,-
"Once to every man and nation comes
a moment to decide.
In the strife of Trutu and Falsehood,
for the good or evil side;
Some great cause, God's new Messiah,
offering each the bloom or blight.
Parts the goats upon the left side, and
the rheep upon the right.
And that choice goes by forever,
'twlxt that darkness and that light
Hat thou chosen, O, my people, on
whose party thou shalt stand.
Ere the Doora from Its worn sandals
shakes the dust against our land?
Though the cause of Evil prosper, yet,
amid the market's din
List the omnious stern whisper from
the Delptic cave within.
They enslave their children's children
who make compromise with sin."

SLAVE POWER ADVOCATE
He Resides at Nebraska City and Spends
the Residue of His Days Spitting
Spite at Bryan
Nebraska City is one of the best
cities in this best of states. But like
every other place it has its drawbacks
and discouragements. Many years ago
the representative of our slave power,
then enthroned, at Washington, dis
covered in the wiles of Michigan, a
youthful egotist of twenty-three sum
mers, who had been christened Julius
All his instincts, and impulses, yet
undeveloped and just budding into self
conceit and anogaupe, pointed him out
as a proper implement to do the bid
ding of the slave driver in Nebraska
He was appointed secretary of this then
territory. He came with the aristo
cratic and intolerant spirit that -;om-j
manded him to the dealers in human
flesh and blood, who sent him lere, to
fasten the black institution of slavery
upon these free wide plains. Greei and
vanity, in addition to conceit and ar
rogance made up his entire character
so far as it was then developed. i
He dreamed of wealth, and tha per
sonal Ownership of many men of Afri
can descent, who should in the future
be his, and whose unpaid toil should,
add to his wealth, his state, and his
ease. He resolved to be rich; and even
in his youth made the fatal compact
with the devil which has long bsen
held by tradition to be the price and
condition of gaining riches.
He wTas ambitious for personal pre
ferment and for political advancement ;
but even this was subordinate to his de
sire to shine as a .nabob of wealth.
The distinction of being acting gov
ernor of Nebraska gave him prestige
with the party which e came to use,
and he was consequently' able for many
years to-rule it with a rod of iron.
He perpetually preached honesty and
yet;was caught in the act of trying to
obtain by fraud the title to the salt
basin near Lincoln .and was compelled
by the courts to loosen ius grip. This
almost broke his heart. He was the
acknowledged boss of the democratic
party in Nebraska until 1S92.
About that time a young man at Lin
coln began to attract public attention
as a future leader among democrats.
This j-oung man was patronized and
praised by the Morton, as long as he
seemed useful and willing to help fly
the Morton kite.
Morton's democracy was of such a
cast that it allied itself with
the Ben Butler Greenback party of
1SS4, t.nd fused his democracy with
that crowd as a candidate for governor
of Nebraska. Meantime he had a se
cret stand-in with the B. & M. corpora
tion, that helped him to get in on the
ground floor of the Wall Street stock
market, both on C. B. & Q. stocks and
on District of Columbia bonds; and he
came out of the tigers den a man of
such wealth that at the end of 1892
he was ceemed worthy to hold a place
in the cabinet of the Plutocrat's Own,
Meantime the prairies of Nebraska
were aflame with populism, and the
Morton unluckily tied like an ox in
the state of Grover and the Wall Street
Gold gamblers, could not follow his
natural inclination and head the move
ment in Nebraska without losing re
spectability and caste with monar
chists at the east.
He saw his young protege W. J.
Bryan, elected to congress by the peo
ple of the very district where he had
his home and which he knew no demo
crat had ever before been able to carry.
When young Bryan appeared at Wash
ington, this boot licker of plutocracy
was dumbfounded to find a young man
who really loved and sought to aid the
oppressed common people. Morton had
all his life had his mouth full of the
words of sympathy for the oppressed,
but in his heart had been nothing but
a selfish greed for money and personal
preferment, hidden by a verneering of
hypocrisy. When he found in Bryan a
man full of genuine sympathy for the
miseries of the down trodden, and in
desperate earnest in his efforts to
better their condition, his inmost na
ture compelled him to become at once
his mortal foe. He brought the power
of the Grover Plutocratic administra
tion to bear to crush him and succeedeu
at the next democratic state conven
tion. Railroad passes and government
patronage for one moment triumphed
over tne love the people felt for Bryan,
in whom all the poor and oppressed of
earth instinctively reel, they have a
But the flood of popular affection
could not be stayed; and Bryan swept
the feeble levees constructed by Mor
ton s corporate tools, into the sea upon
a wave of enthusiasm that was irre
sistible. At Chicago, 'that deep earnestness
and fervor, and the mighty steadfast
ness of Bryan's manhood and deep'sym
pathy for humanity, asserted itself
with all its power, and he became not
only the leader of the commons in Ne
braska, but on the continent of Amer
ica. At once he stood disclosed as tfce
giant with the loving heart who Is to
fight the battles of the oppressed. TLe
Morton, with the Instinct of a. wounded
reptile or a coyote, seeing himself
hurled from power and supplanted by
I I CATHARTIC ya
VS, VWAOt MARK WlOtSTXWfD
Bryan, began to snap and bite himself
in despair. -
In inconsolable and impotent Wrath,
he commenced to publish a weekly per
iodical in Nebraska City In which he
might without let or hindrance pour
out the unspeakable bitterness of his
soul against Bryan who has supplanted
him in the affection and confidence of
the people of Nebraska, - -- -
Hill and Gorman; Whitney and Wil
son all the democratic tools of tne
gold trust, conquered by the grandeur
of Bryan's character nd his steadfast
love for humanity and hatred of op
pression, may abandon the opposition
and come over to me nelp of tne Lord
against the -mighty; but this cold
hearted self-seeking flunkey of plutoc
racy, moved by an envious egotism and
jealousy unspeakable cannot relent.
His war against Bryan has for its
cause a personal disappointment that
has settled down as a rooted sorrow in
his neart. Nothing has so deeply and
irretrievably wounded him, since he
saw his hopes of owning a plantation
worked by black slaves vanish with
the closef the civil war. All the hate
and malice he then felt for the aboli
tionist Lincoln, and his backers, who
thwarted. his fondest hopes of becom
ing a princely slave-owner, he now
turns, with added hate growing, out of
personal disappointment and loss of
political prestige, upon Bryan.
The littlenesses, the meannesses, that
weekly besmear his paper are so con
temptible ,so rancerous, so filled with
the venom of hate, that people unac
quainted with the Morton and his his
tory might well think it the joint
product of all the inmates of an insane
asylum. He raves like a barbarian.
In order to oppose Bryan and tne hu
man race which now marches with
Bryan, the Morton has made himself
the champion and defender of every
abuse and of every combination of
greedy scoundrels in the whole world.
There is not a man between the two
oceans who has evinced the slightest
sympathy with oppressed humanity,
but has incurred the Morton hatred,
because he fears it may help Bryan.
He hates human liberty and a republi
can form of government because these
are loved by Bryan. He belittles
Thomas Jefferson because Bryan loves
his memory and is not ashamed to
stand up and contend for the rights
of man which Jefferson enunciated in
the Declaration of American Independ
ence. Nothing is to be expected from such
a wreck . Let him sulk in nis tent.
He has all the hideous wrath of ;
Achilles without either iiis skill or his
A world is being lost and won while
he idly bewails his wrongs, his wrongs!
Let us give him up to his wrath and
"Some rock's hard entrails gave thee
And raging seas beot thee in a storm."
Meantime the great soul of Bryan,
serene and untroubled, soothed by the
affectionate confidence of all normal
mankind inspires the battle march -o
win the victory for humanity. He
walks with confidence in the footsteps
left upon the shores of time by Lin
coln, Jefferson. Paine, Patrick Henry,
Cromwell, Martin Luther, Julius Cesar,
and greatest and purest, and holiest of
all in the hallowed .foot prints of Jesus
of Nazareth, who lived and labored and
suffered that oppression of men might
cease upon the earth.
Leave the Morton to snarl and snap
and spit and hiss his venom! it is his
nature. Pity him! Let his soon-forgotten
tomb be built by the sea shore,
by the side of the misanthropic TImon
of Athens; and let the ocean sing that
requim, which the human race will re
fuse him. A. BRI ANARCHIST.

A verdict for $22,500 was rendered by
a judge In a negligence suit in New
York the other day. Howard William
son, a boy 11 years old, lost his leg
by being run over by one of the Nassau
Railroad company's cars. This Is one
of the largest verdicts ever returned
by a jury in such a case. The accident
was one such as might have occurred j
a dozen times. The boy was standing j
on the curb and the car, with fender
down, was turning the corner. He was
caught and thrown under the wheels.

Ah, nurse!" the doctor began, then
hesitated. Nurse. Bella was very young
snd had been in training .only a few
weeks, but the hospital force ran short
this morning, and there were readiness
and pluck in the look that met his doubt
ful glance at her. "There's a rather dif
ficult case assigned to No. 20. Do you
4,Oh, Pll try." She was much bored
by the beginner's end of her business. A
difficult case promised change, at least.
I11 try hard," with enthusiasm. -
"Very well. There's brain trouble.
Keep him amused. If you get afraid,
She went to No. 20 jubilant, yet ia
trepidation too. "Brain trouble. Poor
fellow!" She went in with a little shad
ow of sympathy already quieting her
vivacious face. The patient was looking
from a window. He turned and took a
quick step or two toward her, whereupon
Nurse Bella backed and got white.
"I beg pardon," said the patient, stop
ping in considerable surprise. "I thought
you might perhaps bring me a message."
"No, no; not exactly." She did not
want to be too positive if he had set his
heart on it. She gathered her courage
together. He did not appear in the least
dangerous, but stood looking at her with
courteous inquiry quite as any sane man
"I called in to see Dr. James, who is
an old friend of mine," he said when she
continued silent, "but if he doesn't hur
ry," glancing at his watch, "I shall not
"Poor thing T murmured Nurse Bella
under her breath. "He doesn't know that
he is a prisoner. And to him gently,
with beautiful compassion in her eyes,
she said, "I came to to amuse you."
"Why, that's awfully good of you."
looking much as if she had succeeded ia
her purpose, "but it may get you in
trouble, don't you think, with the head
nurse or the doctor?"
"The doctor knows."
"Oh, does he? Well," looking rather
puzzled, "let me give you a chair."
She took the chair, but eyed him anx
iously. She was hoping he was not one
of the cunning type, said to be so danger
ous, and she was sorry for him with all
her heart, so young and so handsome,
and she sighed.
"A place like this," he said, "is so as
sociated with groans and mustard plas
ters that I should be getting a pain some
where by now if you hadn't come."
"OL. you will soon have no pain at all!
The doctors are so good, and they have
given you such pretty rooms. It is not
all the patients who have a cozy parlor
looking out on the park. We will all
try, and I am sure," with sweet earnest
ness, "that you will soon be well."
The patient stared an instant, then
broke into a low laugh, a very pleasant
laugh and becoming.
"I see." he said, "you take me for a
"There," thought Nurse Bella, "how
silly that was of me! Of course he
doesn't know, poor, dear thing, that any
thing is wrong with him." And to him
she said hurriedly, with a smile that en
treated forgiveness: T did not mean
that. Why, you look as if you had nev
er," brightly, "never been ilj."
"That's right," with a genial nod. "I
never have. Good thing for the nurses,
"Why?" looking startled.
"I might growl, you know. Pain's an
awful thing. Why, I've seen a man go
wild over a racking headache go wild."
"How terrible! Would you like, would
it help, if I were to rub it?"
"It's very good of you," coloring some,
"but I wasn't speaking of my head. You
see, trine is as right as a trivet."
"Yours doesn't ache?"
"Not a bit."
"I'm so glad!"
Here the door opened, and the patient
started eagerly toward it, but Nurse Bel
la was too quick for him. There was a
glimpse of a man with a tray of tiny
glasses. Then, in a second. Nurse Bella
held one, and the door was shut.
"By Jove!" said the patient softly and
stood looking at her. She was a bit
nervous and breathless. She came to
ward him with great earnestness.
"Will you drink this, please?"
"See here." and a storm threatened in
the patient's eye. "I've explained to you
that there's nothing the matter with me."
"You must," firmly, bat with white
lips, "or I must ring for help."
"Ring r eagerly. "Where's the bell?"
But she was standing in front of the
bell, and after hesitating an instant he
again made for the door. There was no
time for ceremony. Nurse Bella spilled
the whole contents of the little glass over
his vest in her rush to intercept him, and
very dangerous indeed the patient looked
until he caught her eye. Through all
her terror Nurse Bella felt a thrill of pro
fessional pride at sight of this swift
"I beg your pardon," he said very gen
tly. "I wouldn't have frightened you so
for anything. See; I'll stand here," back
ing meekly toward the wall, "perfectly
still while you ring and"
But there was a hurried step outside,
