OMAHA. May 10. To the Editor of The
Bee: Blare presenting myifll as a candidate
for the republican nomination for consress I
am advised that some who bare followed re
cent political diacuselon do not approve of
Buy views regarding the roune to be pursued
to the Philippine Islands, yet my opinions
were well known when the republicans of
this district sent me as a delegate to the
national convention two years ago to assist
In framing; the national republican plat
form. I antagonized the Spanish treaty at
the time Mr. Bryan was advising Its rati
fication. It Is gratifying to me to note that
BO less an authority than Judge Taft, presi
dent of the Philippine commission, has re
cently declared the acquisition of the Phil
ippine Islands to have been a mistake.
In the last presidential campaign. In the
far of democratic charges and the asser
tion of some republicans, I denied that the
republican party would break faith with
Cuba. Cuban Independence la now assured.
X denied that It was the republican policy
to permanently maintain an arbltray, mili
tary form of government in the Philippines.
Today three members of the Philippine
commission, a majority ef the Judges of the
supreme court, nearly all of the governors
ef the provinces, and I believe all of the
chief magistrates of the municipalities are
Filipinos. This Is a growth In the right di
rection. I denied that eur motlvea In the
cast were to obtain a division of the spoils
when China should be divided. The crisis
In China came. We were there. But to

will record that we were there to preserve

I recognize the embarrassment of having
' well known and often expressed views upon
t these questions, whilst my moot formidable
competitor for the nomination, although he
' lias visited the Philippine islands and has
been called upon officially to Investigate and
form opinions upon all these questions has
sever, to my knowledge, given utterance to
any statements which permit us to know
his views upon any mooted question. He
la therefore antagonised by no one on ac
count of hla convictlona. I am not disposed
to underrate the strength or ability of an
oppostng candidate or apeak slightingly of
bis political system that for ten years has
Worked ao well. Yet I cannot Imitate him,
and at the risk of defeat desire all men to
know my position.
t want no privileges In government that
Are not the equal privileges of all its cltl
Bens. I look upon equality before the law
Of capitalist and laborer, of white man,
black man and brown man, aa a necessary
condition precedent to the proper solution
f all social and economic questions. Spe
cial privileges possessed by favored classes
or by men of a particular color will sooner

ment, and will be attended by the evils that
Always follow Injustice,
Ead of tho Philippine Matter.
The acceptance of the Philippine Islands
M a territory with a view to ultimate In
corporation aa a state. In line with the past
precedents of tbla country, seems to me to
be open to all the objections that have
heretofore cauaed the adoption of Immigra
tion restriction laws. The racial charac
teristics of the Filipinos are such that
without radical changes which could not be
treught about within a century they would
fee unsatisfactory cttlxens to pass upon the
rest social and economic problema that

To admit them, therefore. Into full privi

ta a title always associated witn the name of the author of that eohtsaa ia the Ladies' Home Journal, Bben B.
Rexford, the Shioctoa, Wis., poet and etory writer. One always thinks of a nature love like Mr. aVexford as the
possessor of bounding health and saperabandant vitality, ao it sounds odd to hear that he was a confirmed
dyspeptic not so very long ago. Ths story ef his trouble and its cure is best told ia Mr. Raxford'a owa words.

are referred to by Mr. Rexford as natural conditio na. This ia undoubtedly the correct view. The normal man is a
healthy man. Health depends on the digestion. If the digestion is good ths health is good. If ths digestion is
poor ths general health always suffers.
DIOESTION IS NATURAL; INDIGESTION UNNATURAL
But so many of na have strayed away from natural conditions that few people are really healthy. Hasty eating.
Irregular hours, mild dissipation, a docen other stomach destroying customs of ths dsy have made dyspepsia and
indigestion the characteristic complaints of the generation. If us sufferers knsw how easily such troubles can
be cured there probably wouldn't be ao many of them.

KODOL DYGPEPQIA OURE
the ether hand, to hold them perpetually to
subjection after the fashion of crown colo
nies Is too un-American to be thinkable.
I therefore believe that our legislation re
specting them should be moulded in such
manner aa not to hold them In permanent
subjection against their will or destroy
their national aspirations, but to give them
an independent government at the earliest
practicable moment, the time and manner
being largely questions of expediency.
I do not criticise others who seek the
same ultimate goal as myself because our
methods may be dissimilar. I shall, there
fore, if elected, address my arguments as
heretofore to republicans and attempt to
secure the adoption of my views In repub
lican caucuses and republican platforms.
In holding these vlewa I consider myself
one of the most radical of republicans, in
harmony with sll the principles that first
attached me to that great party and have
since made me one of Its ardent supporters.
The last republican national platform de
clared In reference to the Filipinos "the
largest measure of self-government consist
ent with their welfare and our duties shall
be secured to them by law." It further de
Dared "It was the plain purpose of the
fifteenth amendment to the constitution to
prevent discrimination on account of race
or color In regulating the elective fran
chise." Policy of McKlnley.
President Schurman of the first Philip
pine commission, probably as well Informed
as to the desires of President McKlnley as
any living man, said President McKlnley
alwavs contemplated ultimately an Inde
pendent form of government for the Fili
pinos. No other construction can be placed
upon the words of President Roosevelt In
his last message, that we would give to
them "freedom after the manner of really
free people." The Influence la the repub
lican party of such eminent statesmen
as Tom Reed. Senator Edmonds and
the late President Harrison and John
Sherman has never been shaken, and
no republican platform ever read them
out of the party. Every republican con
gressman and senator who believed as I
did has been supported for re-election by
the republican organizations, both state
and national. Democratic charges do not
make republican policies. The true
lovers of Abraham-- Lincoln are found
in the republican party, I know of
no person who will openly confess
to a desire to exploit the labor and
resources of the Islands, and If any legis
lation permitting such result creeps in it
will be only through accident and Inatten
tion. While In control of these islands we
should consider ourselves possessed of a
sacred trust to be administered not for our
selfish gain, but In the Interests of hu
manity, believing such Interests to be best
subserved by adhering to the fundamental
prlnlcples of our institutions.
If any republican takes Issue with the
principle here announced I would be glad
to meet him on the stump before and re
publican audience. If any democrat be
lieves mine to be an Inconsistent position
I challenge him to sustain the un-American
laws adopted by the controlling wing
of the democratic party In the southern
states or the trust-breeding democratic
state of New Jersey.
Convictlona Not lie ad y Made.
I know that It is urged that a representa
tive who will get our sh'ire of the federal
patronage may well take his political con
victions ready-made from eastern leaders
of the party. I believe that the time has
come when republicans of the central west
should form independent convictions and
have the courage to espouse them earnestly
sad assume the position In the counsels of
our nation to which our average Intelligence
and growing wealth entitles us, to the end
that the central west shall become the
granary and packing heuse of the world and
the center of pure American thought. If,
with such opinions, the republicans of this
district see fit to choose me as their candi
date, I shall endeavor If elected not to dis
appoint them. By so doing they will en
courage young republicans to hope that do
Individual by mere affability can obtain a
life-long monopoly of the honors at the dis
posal of the party, aad that earnest labor
and Independent thought In Ita behalf will
sooner er later obtain fitting reward. If,
on the other hand, I am defeated, I know
ef no one who can smile and look pleasant
In defeat better than myself, or who can
with better heart continue, under llmltsd
opportunities, to advocate all that he holds
dear In our Institutions.

much a medians as a digeetant. There hare been and are other dys

CORNISH SPEAKS IN FIRST
Coaajreealonal Candidate Opens Hla
Campaign in Hla Homo
There was not a large crowd at the meet
ing of the First Ward Republican club
Friday night, there having been a misunder
standing In regard to the date. In the ab
sence of Frank Bandbauer, W. F. Koetler
N. C. Pratt waa the first speaker. After
announcing his desire for nomination at
the hands of ths party for congress, he
said that be would keep up the fight until
the party baa spoken and then his coat will
be off for the nominee. As the republican
party has originated every measure for
good on the statute books, ha waa proud
to say that he had always been In line wl(h
the party Idea. The privilege of holding
office should not be confined to any one
man. He pledged himself If elected to the
office to do all that can be done for the
state and district.
Mr. Pratt was followed by E. J. Coralsh,
who said In part:

MEDICINE MAKERS PROTEST
Manafactarera of Live Stock Food and
Remedies After Agricultural
Omaha manufacturers of stock food and
medicines are still agitated over the action
of the secretary of agriculture in publishing
criticisms of the preparations offered for
sale, and the letter written by the secretary
to Congreasmau Robinson does not assure
them that their preparations may not be the
next to receive the attention of the depart
One of the largest manufacturers of the
city wrote to Secretary Wilson on the sub
ject. He called attention of the eecretary
to the fact that In considering the coat of
ths preparations he should take Into consid
eration not the wholesale coat of the com
ponent parts, but consider what such a
preparation would cost the farmer or stock
raiser If purchased at the local drug store.
In this connection he cited the case of the
hog cholera remedy promulgated by the de
partment a few years ago. Since then It
has been used extensively by the farmers,
who have had It prepared by druggists at a
cost ranging from 10 cents to 26 cents a
pound. An Omaha manufacturer makes the
remedy and sells It to the consumer at 5
cents a pound, much less than It could be
obtained for before It waa manufactured In
Continuing his letter to the secretary, the
manufacturer says that the department Is
flying' In the face of the experience of many
reputable farmers, as it Is practically Im
possible to continue the sale of a medicine
or stock food which haa not demonstrated
ita fitness to live; that the fake remedies
are driven out of the trade by natural pro
cess, while only the worthy remedies attain
such prominence as brings upon them the
attention of the department.

"I have heard reports today that ths ma
jority of ths council has arrived at a basis
of settlement of the assessments of ths
corporations whoss assessments are yet to
be fixed. So fsr aa I am concerned this
Is not so. I find that ws ars In a much
different position than we were at the time
we bad the matter up before. The supreme
court ef the etate haa pessed upon the law,
declaring one portion inoperative. We now
know what to do, and I am going to do It
fearlessly and without prejudice to anyone.
We will follow the terms of the writ of the
court exactly. I have been, invited to con
sult upon the subject snd have refussd to
have anything to do with any conference or
consultation. I am personally standing In
dependently of sll parties Is the matter and
am only going to set after there has been
shown to the Board of Equalisation the real
value of the property and franchises of
these corporations, when I will be ready to
make ths assessed valuation upon ths same
basis ss thst of other property In tbs city.
It has been my Intention all along to do
nothing but what I understood to be fslr.
Ws had no light te disregard ths terms of
the law which permitted the corporations to
subtract from thalr sssessment the bonded
indebtedness, but now that this part of ths
law haa been declared unconstitutional I for
