Our wealth increasing at the same
rale for ten years would pile up a
per capita that even a pop editor
would be astonished at. But there
is but one way to make a populist
leader happy and that is to give him
an office, in his own estimation he is
a little above the common held and
should be a ruler. It matters not
how successful an administration is,
if it is not pop it is wrong. According
to their speakers no policy is right

of piety. He gives the following
reason for not summoning bis crew
to a r< ligious service of prayer and
praise at the conclusion of Hie san
gunary engagement which destroyed
the Spanish fleet:
“I found my ship surrounded by
boats carrying dead and wounded
prisoners and others of the crew of
the ‘Vizcaya’ to the number of 250.
To leave these men to suffer for
want of food and clothing while I
called my men aft to offer prayer
was not ray idea of either Christian
ity or religion. I preferred to
clothe the naked, feed the hungry,
ami succor the sick, and I am sfnmg

put a black mark against me on
account of it.”
