From n Mugwump Standpoint.
The present con ferenco was novcr intended
to bo anything but a meeting of general

nobody knows It better than the critics who

Bismarciclan statecraft in the entertainment

No Military Here.
SI. Hud atole.
Some of those South American delegates
that are swinging around this way are re
ported to express great surprise that th oy
nowhere see any military force. They are
learning that the American citizen doesn't
require a loaded musket on every corner to
make him behave. Ono of them is credited
with the statement that in his country about
every ton th man wears a uniform.

Tlio commerce to the states to the south of

General Henderson's ' suggestion that ono
of our war ships bo loaded with the products
of the nation and sent to South America for
advertising purposes is a tlmoly and practi

much Is to bo calncd by trading with us In
preference to European countries.

The chief aim of tuls extraordinary move *

A Way Will Ho Found.
The representatives of the countries to the

it can profitably bo done. Our people have
the sumo aim. There are differences of

Kansas Cltii Times.
The talk of promoting the trade between
the United States and the South and Control
American states by subsidizing a line of
steamships is little less than Idiotic. Build
up the trade and there will bo no trouble in
getting ships to curry it. But you might
as well talk about crowing wheat In the
great Sahara by building a railroad through
It as to propose to build up a trade with
bouth America by paying ships to bring
her products to the United States when the
United States taxes them to keep them out.

The pcoploof the Central and South Amer
ican states have never received anything
from Europe except armies and attempts at
conquest and oppression. From tbo United
States they have obtained their spirit of lib

of the Pun-American delegates over this

Under better auspices the congress of the
three Americas might do much to promote
more intimate and mutually prolltablo trndo
relations among the nations of thu western
continent. To do this , however , its member
ship should coiiMlst of people who believe'in
commerce as mutually bcncllclal to belli the
parties interested and not merely to the
sollor. Unfortunately , our country h.is 'no
representative of that character. The ten

That was a very pretty sentiment proposed
by Delegate 1'ierra at the banquet given in
honor of the international congress iu Cleve
land , 'To a Hag that ! KU no lyre , no eagle ,
no boast of prov , but wlttx Blurs that en
lighten the horizon and illuminate the world ,
and which we hope soon to see waving in all
the Spanish-American ports. " The senti
ment was greeted by "tremendousapplause , "
and will bo approved by all who live under
the stars and stripes. It wilt not lesson the
apprehensions entertained , on account of the
congress , in Euiopean countries whoso Hags
monopolize the Spanish-American ports.

It is the duty of the United States , no less
than Its clear interest , to use the great power
of its maturity to aid , as far as It honorably
can. other struggling nations of the now
world when they are unjustly assailed , If a
frank recognition of a nation's plain duty IB
an entangling alliance , then thu nation wants
alliances of that sort without delay. A policy
of isolation and total Indifference lo the
ulTalra of other nations has served its part ,
If it over had an honorable part , In the coun
try's ' development. Now , at least , the inter
ests of the United States In every material
and moral sense are to bo promoted by closer
relations of amity and mutual helpfulncbu
with other nations on this continent.
