The Conservative. 11 lie questions , policies , principles or ex pediencies. But in 1900 our peerless one declares "imperialism" the "paramount" is 3ne. And paramount as thus used by the rein carnation of all the saints and states men who over died , means superior , pre eminent , chief , principal. The paradox of a paramount superior to a tanta mount which is the equal of all was produced at an oral incubation at Indianapolis and came out feathered in eight thousand words. A Missonri pop.

( The spelling is thoroughly populistio ) : "Charley Towue withdraws so graceful from the Sioux City Falls Populist nom ination for Vice Presidency and pays such an elegant tribute to Bryan and Stevenson , that it brings a tear of joy to the patriots cheak. "The young man , the bulwark of the republic is now face to face with the question of empire or republic , which ? Which will he make his bride , the colon ial or empire regeine , of Hanna and Me- Kinley with its perpetual war taxes , a stamp or duty on every item you use or consume ? Or will he chose the republic of our fathers , the Declaration of Inde pendence and constitution wherein equal rights and humane laws govern , will he vote for the great tribute of the common people "W. J. Bryan , whose armor is the declaration in one hand , the constitution in the other , his voice paraotin. Peace on earth good will toward men. " Mr. J. Sterling Morton's paper , THE CONSEKVATIYE , touches a raw spot in W. J. Bryan's record by republishing the speech made by Senator Money of Mississippi against the treaty with Spain while Mr. Bryan was himself urging its ratification. It would seem as though Senator Money was addressing himself particularly to Mr. Bryan when he said : "We are told that we want peace ; that we want to get the volunteers home. We all do. Everybody wants peace. I want the volunteers brought home * * * Does any man say we are going to have peace by ratifying this treaty ? Yes ; we will have peace with Spain , but we will begin war with the Filipinos * * * If we ratify the treaty with no declaration in it that we disclaim any right to enslave these people ple , or to hold them in subjection , or use language which does not mean giving them their liberty , we have al ready embarked in a war that will nol release the volunteers , but which will call for fresh volunteers , and thousands of the best American youth will lay their bones upon the plains and in the jungle of Luzon and in other parts ol the Philippines. " Referring to the Bacon resolution which Mr. Bryan wished to have adopted simultaneously with the rati fication of the treaty , Senator Money said that there were several such reso- utions before the senate , but that they amounted to nothing because they were mere declarations of opinion. Congress might pass them today and repeal them tomorrow. They did not fix the status of the Filipinos. They did not disband the army. They did not put a stop to Bloodshed. The only place to accom plish these things was in the treaty it self. He ( Mr. Money ) could not vote for a treaty without stipulations in suring peace engrafted in the instru ment itself. With such stipulations he Delieved that it would receive every vote on his side of the chamber. New York Post. NKW FACTORY AT LINCOLN , gratulated.

The international complications in China are arousing a great interest in historical literature. One can hardly read intelligently the daily papers without some genera ! knowledge of history. One needs to have a bid's eye view of all the nations of the world. It is impossible to thoroughly understand United States history without some knowledge of the history of other countries. The "Library of Universal History' now being sold by the history depart ment of the Chicago Record , is the most complete universal history published and the beauty of it is , it is so very readable It is divided into essays. Several essays pertaining to each country , but each essay a unit , complete in itself. Each one is beautifully illustrated. In fac there are some twelve hundred illustra tions , many taken from the greates galleries of Europe and America. The art features alone cost over $15,000 to produce. They alone , the art features , are really worth all of the small price which the Record is asking for the twelve largo volumes. These superb illustrations tell the story of the world bringing to the mind through the me dium of the eye all the chief events of history. They give a tone to the life and home of any one. Its two hundred maps constitute a valuable atlas. It is said to bo ono of the best mapped works in the world. Its chronological charts acquaint us with all the different rulers of every country in the world. Its indexes sys tematize the contents of the entire work and render any particular fact easily accessible , make of it a great encyclo paedia of historical fact , as well as a work to be read. It has done a great good by making history readable , not dry reading. It is really a most fascinating story of the world's progress. It is a pinnacle from which one gets a most magnificent bird's eye view .of the world and can witness with rapt attention the march of hu man progress vastly different , this , from mere chronological narration , and the authorship is the very best. Clare , the historian , is the editor in chief , but it is not a one-man work. Special sub jects have been treated by special writers. Roosevelt gives a special arti cle on recent history , our late trouble with Spain. Lee tells us of Cuba's struggle with Spain. Benjamin Ido Wheeler's article on the Eastern ques tion is of great historical interest and value. Moses Coit Tyler's article on the educational value of the study of history is a most inspiring thing. The Record's price is within the reach of all , for the total price for the twelve large volumes is not only low but for those who do not care to pay cash , an iasy payment plan has been arranged whereby Record subscribers may have the use of the work and have over one year's time in which to pay for it. Full particulars , together with sample pages pf the work , can be secured by address ing the Chicago Record , History Dept. , 215 Wabash ave. , Chicago , 111.
