Empire by One flajorlty.
The decisions of the supreme court
in the insular cases aro bewildering;
Tlie new possessions are declared, to
be parts of the United States for some
purposes, not for others. They aro do
mestic in some senses, not In others;
The line is drawn at the tariff. The
trusts win out.
The decisions turn on the tariff is
sue, for that was the essential subject
in dispute. Justice White, a demo
crat appointed by President Cleveland,
from the sugar growing state of Louis
iana, turned, the scale. If he had
agreed with Chief Justice Fuller and
Justice Pcckham, both democrats, and.
with Justices Harlan and Brewer, both
republicans, the discriminating duty
levied on Porto Rican goods In the
Downes case, would have been held,
unconstitutional, because the goods
came from a part of the United States,
and duties throughout the United
States must be uniform and equal. But
Justico White went with Justices Mc
Kenna, Shiras and the other republi
cans who drew a line that would pro
tect the trusts and safeguard the
sacred McKinley-DIngley tariff, even
to the crossing of a "t" and the dotting
of an. "I," to use the classical language
of the great and good Mr. Hanna in
In order to do this In order to save
the tariff after the court had declared
Porto Rico a possession and part of
this country, it was necessary to re
verse in the most direct and distinct
manner a decision of the court ren
dered by Chief Justice Marshall. That
decision had stood unquestioned down
to the present time, and it would still
stand unquestioned if Justice White
had not accepted the administration or
sugar view of the case.
Whether accidentally or not, this
great court always in great cases takes
the side of great capital. It did this
in the Dred Scott case, which, as Jus
tico Brown states, was overruled by
public sentiment and war. It took the
side of capital in the greenback case.
So it did in the income tax case, and
it is. now supporting by a majority of
one the trusts and the tariff.
The essence of these cases, aa So
licitor General Richards truthfully
states, is the tariff. Ho should have
added, through it tho trusts, and
through tho trusts, tho campaign sub
scribers. By a majority of one these
hava won. Tho Dlngley tariff at home
on the mainland is preserved even to
tho crossing of a "t" and the dotting
of an "i," and tho trusts and campaign
subscribers aro on top in their cus
tomary place. The new possessions
are told by Justice Brown that they
have some rights in common with the
mainland under tho constitution, but
not the right of equal taxation. This
the sugar trusts and other trusts could
not grant. "Tho American Empire"
is practically established. This phrase
is all that is indorsed In Chief Justice
Marshall's repudiated decision. The
administration is left to deal with
Porto Rico under the Foraker act and
the Philippines under the Spooner act,
as it pleases, and tho trusts are happy
and fully protected. Birmingham Age-Herald.

Dr. Girdner, the author of an extra
ordinary book, with tho extraordinary
name, "Newyorkitis," has had a re
markable career. Before his gradua
tion as a surgeon from tho university
of the city of New York his list of
honors and. prizes constituted an unus
ual record and the record stands to
day. To perfect himself for his pro
fessional career he spent several years
in the principal medical institutions of
Europe. Upon his return to New York
he was offered i partnership by Dr.
Frank Hamilton, the first surgeon of
his day in this country and, with him,
participated in the consultations held
at the bedside of President Garfield.
It was his knowledge of this case
which prompted the invention of tho
Girdner Telephone Bullet Finder,
which was given to the world by him.

Garfield was shot, his life could havo
