An Appeal to the Filipino.
There are Asiatic races oh which
kindness is wasted. They respect the
men who treat them justly and firmly,
but in kindness they seo timidity.
Judging from recent experiences in the
island of Samar and elsewhere in the
Philippines the Filipinos have not yet
learned the full strength and resources
of the United States government, an
find in the pacific and gcherdus policy
it has been pursuing signs of a lack of
strength and of determination. H
may be that a little less gentleness
and more severity 'will be required.
Wo have been so condescending
As to purchase you from Spain,
Paying twenty million dollars;
I recall the sum, with pain;
And have slaughtered you industrious
ly From then until today;
I could weep aloud, when thinking '
Of our kindness thrown away;
For we've killed you most expensively,
"With rapid-firing guns,
Shooting sixty shells a minute, '
Using cartridges by 'tons;
And instead of humbly. thanking us,
On prayerful bended knees,
You have banged at us with cannon,
Fashioned out of trunks of trees.
We have butchered' you, and pardoned
Till seventy times seven;
We've given your bodies burial
And sent your, souls to heaven;
We'ye often taken prisoners,
And even spared their lives'; . -But.
benefits (and bayonets)
You've met with "bolo-lmives " -
And, still,, we've used-. you fatherly
And gently sliot;you down, r,
And when, we lost -a mano.u;tvo,j- ..
Humanely burnt. a town, v ,-
While our navy" hurled parabolic.
Blessings from above;
'Twas entirely unavailing
For; we couldn't win your lo've.
We have prayed to you with shrapnel,
That we might be reconciled;
But sharper than, a serpent's tooth
Hath been our devil-child;
With warmest love and lucifers
We've lit your nlppa thatches; .
And, still, you iduldn't turn to us,
'Twas but a wast of matches.
But now, in holy " anger,
And in agonizing grief,
We are getting ready rapidly
To give our so'uls relief;
For the day of ruth is over,
And of pardon and of grace,
Since our kindness is but wasted
On an Asiatic race.
-Bertrand ShadweH, in Springfield
A fact. Several 'of these primitive
wooden cannon-were on exhibition at
Buffalo; and the aspect of these pitiful
and ineffectual weapons, must have
filled every generous heart with com
passion and wonder.
The Toad Eaters' Expedition.
If Theodore Roosevelt wanted some
body to represent him personally any
where it is safe to say that he would
not send a gentleman tricked out in
knee breeches, and a braided coat,
with a toy sword at his side.
Why, then, should Theodore Roose
velt, as president, think Mr. White
law Reid in such a masquerade make
up will fitly represent the United
States at a king's qoronation?
The thing Is no more American in
one case than the other, and Theodore
Roosevelt, who used to be an Ameri
can to the backbone, knows it as well
as does any other citizen of this dem
President Roosevelt, indeed, so en
tirely understands the offensive ab
surdity of this special embassy to par
ticipate in Edward's coronation that
ho has not dared to ask congress for
an appropriation to pay its expenses.
Tho subject of a special appropria
tion for the purpose has not been
broached in either the house or sen
ate up to the present time. If tho
stato department has asked for one
the fact has been kept secret by tho
committee to which the request would
go. Requests for appropriations, aa a
rule, are made public when received
by these committees.
Nevertheless thero will bo money
available to pay for Mr. Reld's knee
breeches and the rest, and the Ameri
can taxpayer will have to supply it.
Tho urgent deficiency bill, which
passed congress early last monthcon
tained an item of $40,000 to be used
by tho state department "to enable
the president to meet unforeseen
emergencies arising in the diplomatic
and consular service, and to extend
the commercial and other Interests of
the United States." In Washington
this is known as the state department's
"secret. fund," and 'the disbursements
are not required to be made public.
The cost of sending to London the
knee breeches kowtowing coronation
expedition will undoubtedly bo drawn
from this "secret fund."
President Roosevelt will not, if he
can help it, give congress chance to
debate -so- indefensible a- use of public
money; part of which must bo-paid by
every m. hanic, laborer and farm
hand in the country. New York Journal.
Another Cabinet Vacancy Wanted.
!Mri" Root is- a corporation lawyer
by iii'bfessfori a'rlQ 'by practice. In that
field hS has for many years been high
ly successful. If he return to New
York lucrative fees' ' doubtless will
await hlm-'thefe. -As- secretary of war
he ,'MsiJoutifve(i his trse-fulness. in
view of the Intense friction he has
stirred up 'in the department, in the
army and in congress It Is to be hoped
that he may speedily retire from the
cabinet. New Orleans Times-Democrat.
ThJ (Only Practical Remedy.
There s, only one practical way to
defeat .tlja, schemes of the trusts to
manipulate Vfie market and that is to
put an' e.nd ,to the system by which
the government protects the men who
speculate at jthoexpense of the food of
the common people. Breaking down
the tariff walls is the only method
that wll be of practical utility. The
democrats should insist upon this Is
sue and at least force the republicans
to place themselves on record. Bos
