This is an absolute necessity for
there who exploit the laboring masses,
otherwise tees Japes would vote for
their Interest. To unmark these hy
pocrites Is both one of te problem
duties of the day. When this is
done and the people brought to a real
isation cf the stupendous frauds. the
perpetrators will la&e their present
power to Etal by law.
The pc-cp!e mean to be politically
honest and would be if political shy
sters would let them be. The republi
can voter believes that he Is voting
for the principles of Lincoln. The
eastern democrat believes that h is
voting for the principles of Jefferson
and Jackson. Hence plutocracy seized
the reins of both of the parties. Tet It
Is aa Indisputable fact that about all
foundation which the republican voter
has for his faith la the -party of Lin
coln" was buried with that great man.
When he was assassinated the Intent
was to also assassinate his principle
with the same dicker, with which
they put him out of their way. Sub
sequent events attest how well the
assassins did their work.
The eastern democrat has faith in
the party of Jefferson. Yet about all
f the foundation fohat faith was
destroyed by the cohabitation of that
party with the great slave oligarchy,
and was buried beyond hope of resur
rection by Cleveland.
The cream of both of these parties
Is now cominjjled In the parties of the
Independents of Dry a a and Teller and
Town. The undeceived masses of the
people have faith in these parties, but
a vast cumber of them have no faith
la the name democrat, and another
great mass of them have no faith in
republicanism, and still others have no
faith in populism. This and the rea
sons therefor Is plain to every observ
ing mind. The hope and aspiration of
ail of these classes are the same the
triumph of tve principles upon which
the republic was founded.
To believt that the republic will be
retomi to its former purity, or lr
made in fact what its founders intend
ed It fhould be. through either the re
pallicsja party or the democratic par
ty cf the east is to have faith that
would remove several mountains. Our
democratic" friends cf the west and
south will have to have much of this
kind of faith to believe that the
masses of the reform fortes will
loncer look to those la any way al

Wall street robberies. Nay. if I right

But, my good sirs,' don't ' cross the
bridge yet. Democrats and populists
as such may b3 separattd,.but patriots,
as patriots will be together. Fusion of
these that can fuse and should fuse
will be perfected a something that
has never been. Plutocracy will then
be forced to sail under Its true colors.
Wall street magnates can then ride
la Hanna'a boat or in that of the

be necessarily deceived. Of course the
parties of the great American im
mortals. Jefferson, Jackson and Lin
coln, will still be prostituted as In the
past. Robberies will still be attempted
In the name of virtue and high heaven.
Four years more of unconstitutional
war and gatling gun Christian civili
zation will arouse the latent manhood
of this nation and the pulses of for
eign nations, and the predicament in
which our country will be found will
bring a revolt against wars of con
quest and greed. The time will be
ripe for the fusion of the oppressed and
robbed of every party into one grand
and mighty party of the producing
masses. When such party is formed
and not until then will the great east
ern monled oligarchy and trust kings,
enthroned behind the bulwarks of the
old republican and democratic parties
be hurled from power. Either this

We Can Stand It
Editor Independent: Enclosed please
find my subscription for another year
to The Independent. We got beaten in
the election, but I think a great many
who voted the republican ticket will
have plenty of McKlnley soup in the
next two years enough to ' be eaten
with a quart spoon. We have the con
solation of knowing that the minority
can stand it If the majority can.
If Dietrich i3 an upright man, then
I am deceived by the looks of a man
for the first time in my life and I am
now sixty-seven years old. I think
that we shall see some wonderful
changes In politics in the next two
years. The people who have indorsed
the McKinley administration will have
enough of it and a little to spare. I am
thinking that the English lion will be
hanging his head and tail before an
other two years mark it.
If we will shut our eyes when we
cast our ballots, we will have to swal
low some strong and bitter dregs, but
we can stand it as well as the repub
licans. GOTTLIEB BALLMER.

sorry that your earnest work for our

Hon. James D. Richardson and the
other minority members of the commit

sist on a $70,000,000 annual reduction
of taxes instead of the $40,000,000 cut
suggested by the majority. "Economy
in the public service that labor may be
lightly burdened" was one of Jeffer
son's tenets, and it is a tenet of his fol
lowers today. "Lower taxes and more
economical expenditures!" is and should
be the battlecry of Democrats every
where. It is just as necessary to econ

principle contained In old Ben Frank

The minority report very properly
and tersely declares that "the vast rev
enues now collected and the expendi
tures now made by the government, if
not remedied, must ultimately become
a peril to our home and foreign enter
prise and business. The pruning knife
should be applied vigorously to both
taxation and expenditures."
The minority, however, might as well
have saved its breath and economized
its ink, for extravagance will continue
to be practiced all the same. There will
be no economy in federal expenditures
until Democrats once more control the
Food For Reflection.
Nevertheless the appropriation bills
for this session of congress should af
ford much food for reflection to those
palpitating patriots who In the melan

There has been a vast deal of splen
diferous talking done about our com
merce growing by leaps and bounds.
So do our appropriations. They grow
after the fashion of Jonah's gourd vine.
Economy and economists are sneered
at. The cry Is that "the people in

being intended to embrace congress.

An Outraareous Steal.
Hon. William P. Frye, senator from
Maine and president of the senate. Is
one of the ablest of the Republican
chieftains. His parts are solid rather
than showy. He does not figure In the
public press so much as some others,
but he is universally regarded as a man
of rare good sense. That he is a pa
triot no one will seriously question.
Nevertheless It remains for him to for
mulate a most serious indictment of
the Republican party and its policies.
It was in his speech in favor of the
Payne-Hanna or Hanna-Payne ship
suj)8ldy bill. I really do not know which
of those eminent Republicans attained
wLat Milton denominates "the bad em
inence" of fathering that outrageous
measure. That really is not a question
with which the general public is con
cerned. No matter who concocted it, it
I is here and Is quite likely to become a
i law. I invite . everybody not only to
read Senator Frye's indictment, but to
ponder it thoroughly. It is found in his
exordium, which is as follows:
Yt. President Our present condition aa a great
maritime nation ia humiliating; beyond expreaaton.
With thousands of miles of aeaooaat equipped with
fine harbors, boundless forests, iron and coal
enough to supply the world, skilled mechanics,
enterprising ahipbuilders, the largest exportationa
of an country in the world, imports amounting
lat year to $840,000,000 and abundant capital we
have permitted other countries our commercial
rivals, our inferiors in most of these regards to
seize upon the pathways of the oceans and hold
them to our practical exclusion. Lest year we
carried under our ftag to and from Europe only
per cent of our exports and Imports; to and
from the world a fraction over 9 per cent. We
paid foreign nations, principally Great Britain
and Germany, $500,000 a day in gold for trans
porting our foreign commerce. "
I fail to see how any one can be blind to the
dangers of our position in this regard. Our short
and decisive war with Spain compelled us to hunt
the seas over for transpcrta and colliers; to pur
chase or charter 0 ships from foreign nations.
Suppose the wsr had lasted a year or had been
with a more powerful nation and neutrality had
bern enforced, as it should be, we would have
been in most serious straits. As it was, our pro
ducers paid heavy penalties in increased freight
rates. Great Britain in her war with the Boers
hai transporta enough; but even then rates were
seriously advanced in the east. Suppose there
should be s European war r s conflict between
Great Britain and Germany, what would become
of our enormoua export trade? Who would be
ur carriers 7 Who would pay the war insurance
premiums en our cargoes even if carriers could be
found? We should suffer almost as seriously as
either of the combatants. Out farmers, manufac
turers and wage . earners would pay almost as
touch as a coat of the war sa they. i-
From s purely commercial point of view in
peaceful beura could anything be less helpful to
us than the employment of agencies whose inter
ests were entirely antagonistic to osrsf Bow
would they help us to find markets for our prod
ucts? Could we expect them to be ambitious to
extend our foreign trade? ,
Resw.lt of Republic Rule.
Now, be It remembered that for only
two years since 1857 have the Demo
crats even theoretically had posses
sion of all of the three lawmaking
branches of the government at one
time the house, the senate and the
presidency. Even then, from March 4,
1893, to March 4, 1895, there were
enough so called Democratic senators
acting with the Republicans to nullify
all attempts to enact any genuine Dem
ocratic laws. So that it Is not unfair to
charge that all the evils complained of
and so tersely stated by Senator Frye
are the direct result of Republican
legislation. To show more clearly how
great are their sins of omission and
commission in this regard it is only
necessary to state that in the spring of
18C1 we had the second largest mer
chant marine. Our ships floated on ev
ery sea, and our flag fluttered on
mastheads In every harbor of the
world. Consequently the Republicans
cannot escape condemnation at the bar
of history for bringing us to the woeful
plight over which Senator Frye utters
After delivering the foregoing exor
dium Senator Frye says, "I have been
trying for many years to find a remedy
for this unfortunate condition."
Tet the remedy ia as plain as the sun
shining in his meridian glory, and It
will be found In removing the tariff
from every article that enters Into the
making of a ship. We have shipbuild
ers and sailors equal to any on the
whole face of the world and If given a
fair chance would soon not only restore
but increase the glory of our merchant
' Take Oft the Tariff.
Take off the tariff which has driven
our flag from the high seas and aban
doned that rich empire to our competi
tors in commerce, and at ence from a
thousand lips will Issue the command:
Build me straight, O worthy master,
Stanch and strong, s goodly vessel
That ehall laugh at all disaster
And with wave and whirlwind wrestle I
Take off the tariff on shipbuilding
materials, which has made us feebler
on the water than Turkey or Morocco,
and in scores of shipyards this splen
did scene will be witnessed every year:
When the master,
With a gesture of command, . j
Waved his hand, .
And at the word
Loud and sudden there was heard
All around them and below
The sound of hammers, blow on blow.
Knocking away the shores and spurs.
And seel She stirs; -
She starts; she moves; she seems to feel
The thrill of, life along her keel,'
And, spurning with her foot the ground.
With one exulting. Joyoua bound,
She leaps into the ocean's arms!
And, lo, froth the assembled crowd
There rose a shout prolonged and loud.
That to the ocean seemed to say:
"Take her, O bridegroom, old and gray!
Take her to thy protecting arms,
With all her youth and all her charms!"
How beautiful she is! How fair
She lies within those arms that press
Her form wfth many a soft caress
Of tenderness and watchful care!
Sail forth into the sea, O ship!
Through wind and wave right onward steer!
The moistened eye, the trembling lip.
Are not the signs of doubt or fear.
Sail forth into the sen of life,
O gentle, loving, trusting wife.
And safe from all adversity
Upon the bosom of that sea
Thy comings and thy goings bel
For gentleness and love and trust
Prevail o'er angry wave and gust,
And in the wreck of noble lives
Something immortal still survives!
Most assuredly there is not much
comfort for the American people in the
following dispatch from San Francis
co: "It will be IS to 20 years before the Philippines
are on the same footing aa the United States."
This statement is made by Captain C E. Polk
of Company I, Forty-third infantry, who arrived
in thia city today on the United States ahip
Xinuck. Be is invalided home on account of
wounds. Speaking of war in the Philippines, he
"I wish that the people of the United States
could understand conditions that exist in the
Philippine Islands. It will take 15 or Z0 yeara
before those people are on the same peaee basis as
we are here in the United States. The conditions
at present are such that the United States govern
ment cannot say to any one city or town in any
of the islands, 'Come here; I will protect you!'
because of lack of troops.
"It will take 75,000 men to establish peace as it
should be, and aa long as the United States hesi
tates about sending this number there wiU be the
same kind of warfare that ia now being conducted.
"The truth of the matter ia the Filipinos have
come to think Americans 'softer' than anything
they have ever had to do with before. Of thou
sands of prisoners that have been taken during the
war there are but few who are not at the present
time on the line fighting.
"The volunteer regiments want to come home,
and unless they are allowed this privilege none of
them will re-enlist. So far aa Senator Hale's bill
is concerned, extending the time of the enlistment
of volunteer regiments to three years, I can aay
that there is not an officer in the volunteer army
in the Philippines that will be governed by it.
They win all resign even if it is done ss s matter
In perusing the foregoing the reader
should remember that the words were
not uttered by a candidate or spell
binder in the heat of a campaign for
the purpose of winning votes for him
self or his party, but by a brave soldier!
who proved his devotion to his flag and!
country by sacrificing his health inj
service in the Philippines. CertainlyH
his words present a dismal prospect for
the American .people. Twenty years of
wartnean the shedding of much pre
cious American blood, the wanton sac
rifice of many valuable American lives
and the expenditure of many hard
earned American dollars.

Ratio For Representatives.
There is likely to be considerableof a
fight over the bill to fix a ratio for a
representative and to apportion to the
representatives among the states under
the new census. The present ratio is
173,000 and a few hundred. Mr. Chair
man Hopkins of Illinois suggests rais
ing the ratio to 209,000, which would
leave the membership of the house at
about what It is. now, 857 representa
tives. Truth to tell, there Isn't room
for many more unless the rofgwttton of
Hon. Thomas B. Reed to remove the
desks is acted on. Evidently Mr. Hop
kins has' decided In his own mind by
the help of skillful statisticians that
the ratio of 209,000 is the one which
will give the Republicans the greatest
advantage in the fractions of the ratio,
for a major fraction gives a represent
ative as well as an entire ratio, but
while he is figuring he should remem
ber that the ratio of 209,000 will work
to lessen the present representation In
certain rock ribbed Republican states,
such as Maine and Ohio. Perhaps the
Republicans of those states will make
one grand kick, .as no state likes to feel
that it is falling to the rear. Maine
started In with seven representatives
In 1821. She now has four, and the
Hopkins plan will reduce her to three.
It will be interesting to see Hon.
Charles E. Uttlefleld tackle Hopkins In
a fight for his political life. Nous ver
Senator From Minnesota.
Governor Elect Alexander Monroe
Dockery of Missouri has been visiting
and resting In Washington, the scene
of his labors for 16 years. He seems
cheerful even if the country did go Re
publican, but his troubles are in the fu
ture, for Bryan's defeat will cause a
dozen good men and true to solicit of
fice from Dockery where one would
have solicited favors at his hands had
Bryan been elected.
Governor Llnd of Minnesota did him
self and his state proud by appointing
that brilliant and courageous young
statesman, Charles A. Towne, to the
senate, vice Hon. Cushman K. Davis,
deceased. Towne made as much repu
tation in a single term In the house as
an other man ever did, not even ex
cepting Bryan himself, who leaped Into
national fame during his first session.
Towne's manly, patriotic and self ab
negating course In declining the vice
presidential nomination in order to
help the good cause by harmonizing the
fusion forces endeared him to the
hearts of Democrats everywhere, who
hail the new senator with delight The
pity is that he Is in for only a few

The probabilities are strongly la fa
vor of the proposition that at last the
senatorial ambitions of Hon. "Gas"
Addlcks of Delaware will be gratified.
The legislature stands about one-third
Democrats, one-third Republicans and
one-third Addlcks Republicans. There
are two senators to elect one for four
years, the other for six. So it would
appear to a mere looker on In Vienna
that the Hon. "Gas" is master of the
situation and has made his calling and
election sure to a curule chair. The
regular Republicans will have to com
bine either with him or with the Demo
crats. For years they have been de
nouncing the Hon. "Gas" as the foulest
corruptionist unhung, as the personifi
cation of all villainy, and so forth and
so on, but the chances are that they
will eat their own words and swallow
This complexion has Delaware come
at last Delaware, the home of the
Bayards, Saulsburys, Claytons and Mc
Lanes! There will be no question about
the right of the Hon. "Gas" to his seat
for according to Hon. Anthony Higgins
he will hold It by right of purchase.
Twice before he has been strong
enough to defeat any election, though
not strong enough to elect himself.
Terhaps Hon. William Eaton Chandler
of New Hampshire, chairman of the
committee on privileges and elections,
who made such a great show of virtue
in the case of Senator William A. Clark
of Montana, will be too busy frying his
own fish to pester his head about the
corruption of the Hon. "Gas," for "Gas"

General Charles nenry. Grosvenor of
Ohio, the sage of Athens, has long en

major prophet now on earth, and it
was confirmed to him by the fulfill

Into the world from London last sum
mer to the effect that Utah would go

fun at the venerable prophet and the
Democrats laughed loud and long, but
he laughs best who laughs last So the
general Is happy.
General Eagan has been completely
whitewashed or, as he expresses it,
"vindicated" by the action of the presi
dent in first restoring him to duty as
quartermaster general and then retir
ing him. Such things are not well cal
culated to promote good order and dis
cipline In the army. Either Eagan was
gnilty and should have been punished
or he was innocent and should have
been acquitted. There should have
