Patrick Ecun, once minister to Chili;

formed in the interest of Mr. Bryan.

To make tin meaning of imperialism
plain Wy illustration, it mav he haid that
the American colonies fought the revol

perialism. The best exposition of im
perialism extant is to 1 found in Wil
liam Jennings Bryans ootilicatiou speech
at Indianapolis. "Republics cannot have
subjebtg," he says. To tax without al
lowing representation, to govern with
out the couseut of the governed that is
imperialism. American imperialism is
to plant our flat; in an aliea land with,
out the constitution. We have done
this, through the present Republican ad
ministration, in the Philippine islands.

Is There A Money Question.
The North-western Catholic never took a deep interest in the so-called money
question. To ita untutored mind money is simply tbo yard stick of exchange; and
it has always believed and continues to believe that any metal intrinsically valu
able would serve the world as money. It never could appreciate the signillcance
t "sound money" as tlistiuguised from "rotten money;" nor why a white metal
that served mankind tor 3,000 years as a medium of exchange phould become "rot-
tea suddenly ; or why the discrediting of that white metal should become nocess
nrv to the safetT of business. It is unable to discern the existence of a money
questional this time before tbe American people. The single gold standard
now the law of the land; and all admit that the repeal of tuis law would be im
possible for at least six years; because during that jienod a "sound money ma
jority will rule the Uoittd States senate But, if again, for sake of the argument
we confess that mankind was financially blind and wanting in the sense of smell
for three thousand years in failing to discover the rottenoeHs of silver, and if we
confess lit general terms that bimetalism is an evil, still would it be diflicult to
dim-over any great cause for alarm oyer a question which is unalterably settled for
at least nix years. Better to settle once and for all time whether the mission of
this nation is the protective of life liberty and property within its own boundaries
or tle destruction of life liberty and property in the distant Islands of the Pacific
Ocean. -North Western (Sioux city) Catholic.
Roosvelts Insult To Labor.
Theodore Koosvelt now pleads for the vote of laboring men. It will le in
strucli ve to read an article published in the Review of Reviews for Septembej, 1H

The men who object to what they style government by Injunction,' are,
as Regards the essential principles of government in hearty sympathy with
their remote skin-clad ancestors who lived in caves, fought one another with
stone-headed axes, and ate the Mammoth and wooly Rhinoceros.
They are interesting as representing a geological survival but they are
dangerous whenever tlvre Is the' least chance of their making the principles of
this ages-buried pat living factors in our present life.
"Tliey are not in sympathy with men of good minds and sound civic mor
ality. 'It Is not a nire thing to wish to pay ones debts in coins worth 50 cents on

anarchy by providing that the law Miall only protect the lawless and Frown
scornfully on the law-abiding.
"There is a great deal of mushy sentiment in the world, and there are al
ways a certain number of people whose minds are weak and whose emotion
ore strong and who effervesce with sympathy toward any, man who does
wrong, and with indignation toward any man who chastises the criminal for
having done wrong. These emotionalists, moreover, are always reinforced
by tlwt larjre body i f men who themselves wish to do wrong, and who are
not sentimental at all, but, on the contrary, very practical. It is rarely that

Corrupt ring of tyrants.
There is uo Republican party in the
sens of that party's origin in existence

and j.Maine. The party is now the shad
ow of a name, while a vast combina
tion of trust and monopoly has taken its
plac4 and masquerades in the gar
mentP of the mighty lea of the
past It is ditUctr; to beleive that real
republicans who attended the birth of the
party, can indorse the usurpation of its

(Ex Senator, Ex-secretary of the Treas
urer, and Ex-Gova.-nor ot-Massachusetts,
In ray age I leave the Republican
party now that it has surrendered itself
to despotic and tyrannical motives. I
helped create the Republican party, a
party at that time of justice and princi
ple and honesty. I now believe it is a
parly of injustice and despotism and I
will help to destroy it. And how?
There is but one available means and
you know what that is. I am for Pry
an. I am for Bryan in spite of what hw
may believe concerning the currency or
finances of the country. This is a Ques
tion of life or death to the republic. In
such a crisis shall r stop to consider
whether silver should be worth more or
less than it is? If a mistake is - made in
tbe next administration, should Bryan
be elected, the people can remedy it in
four or eight years. The country would
not he destroyed. If the currency is im
paired we can reedem It. It was impair
ed during the civil war and we redeemed
it afterwards. Speech at Indianapolis,
