Bryan is hopelessly addicted to phrases that sound well but that will not bear analysis. Here is a sample of bis many late speeches against expansion! " Why should we purchase a title to the Philippines from Spain? We declared that Spain did nothaveany title to Cuba When I buy the Philippines I want to deal directly with them, and 1 want to pay more than |2.50 upiece for them." In the first place we are not purchasing a title to the Philippines from Spain. We are allowing Spain $20,000,000 for internal Improvements made by Spain, but we are freeing the Philippines from Spanish misrule as the legitimate result of war, just as we have Cuba. This allowance of $20,000,000 is a free gift, having nothing whatever to do with our rights to control the islands, and Is In no sense a compensation to Spain for them. If It were we should be thieves for the islands will sell at any time for $200,000,000. In the second place supposing we were purchasing a title to the Philippines from Spain, that would be no unusual thing. In the good old days, Mr. Bryan delights to tell about, we purchased Florida from Spain, and besides acquiring thereby several thousand Indians we got the old Spanish town of St. Augustine and a lot of good Spanish citizens. And Jefferson, to whom Mr. Bryan refers so frequently, purchased from France the territory of Louisiana, and in tho deal he got not only all the American Indians, who for aught we know were as much entitled to consideration as the natives of some of the Philippine islands, but also the big French city of New Orleans, and a lot of excellent Frenchmen. This country has bought territory many times in the past hundred years, and in each case has thereby acquired a big addition to its population, without either dealing directly with the people or paying in most cases anywhere near $2.50 apiece for them. Mr. Brynn indulges in specious claptrap, unworthy of a barn stormer in a hot campaign. But what shall be said when Grover Cleveland joins Mr. Bryan, and in his pompous way makes the following absurd suggestion: "The remedy for controlling the natives of our new possessions is obvious and simple. The misguided inhabitants of our new territory who prefer something different from the plan for their control which we E ropose, or who oppose our designs in their ehalf, should be slaughtered. Killing natives has been a feature of expansion since expansion began, and our imperialistic enthusiasm should not be checked by the prospective necessity of destroying a few thousand Filipinos." The United Slates has expanded eight times in its history, and what killing of natives has followed? How many Spaniards, Frenchmen, Mexicans, Alaskans, or Indians even, who would live peaceably with their neighbors, have been injured by the acquisition ol territory by the United States? When Mr. Bryan and Mr. Cleveland can find nothing to say better worth while than they have thus far given utterance to, it is safe for the average man to conclude that they have nothing to talk about. iberately set forth to subjugate any oreign land it would have violated the teat principle Senator Mason is to discuss. But when, as the result of a war, begun and conducted for humanity slanda that have been devastated .yranny and anarchy for centuriescome nto our control, it becomes our duty to maintain order, to establish stable rovernment, and to protect life and Property, no matter what the Islanders ,hink about it, just as much as it has been our duty to do these things among our domestic Indians or in polygamous Utah. -.--.-—.===£1--THE Vinton Eagle says, in giving the Iowa City Republican a home thrust, ihat— "It Is an admitted fact that the state university squanders more money with less results than any other institution in Iowa." We are willing the Eagle should get even with the Republican in any way t pleases, but we cannot let so reckless a statement as this go. If Bro. Murphy would like to see the figures we can show him that the Iowa state university is run at less expense per capita of its students than any state university in the west or than any other college of like rank. The state .nvestlgatlng committee found as little to criticize and as much to praise in the management of the state university as t did in that of any other state institution. . THE newspapers which are talking of Senator Funk for governor are doing so without his consent. Senator Funk ias already openly endorsed Gov. Shaw 'or a second term, and even at the close of that he will not be a candidate un ess circumstances should arise that would make a declination on his par unreasonable. Senator Funk has lot of friends in Iowa who would like see him governor, and who may be heard from later on. They do not want to have him injured by the unauthoi Ized use of his name at this time. The Consent of the Governed. Senator "Billy" Mason is to address the senate shortly on the following resolution: "Whereas, all just powers of govern ment are derived from the consent of the governed: Resolved, That the govern ment of the United States of America wil not attempt to govern the people of anj other country in the world without the con sent of themselves, or subject them by force to our dominion against their will." If the senator puts the interpretation upon the whereas clause that Wm. J Bryan did in bis Cincinnati speech, he will add still further to the distrust in which he ict now held. This is no time when the country is engaged in grave and serious duties which affect its honor at home and abroad, to hold a de bating school over phrases, upon which history has put an interpretation. " Whereas all just powers of government are derived from the consent o the governed" has not prevented the United States from enforcing civilization upon the Indians, from suppressing polygamy in Utah with an iron hand, from bringing back the seceding states into the union with armies, and it will not BOW prevent the United States from doing its duty in Cuba, Porto Rico, and. the Philippines. There is a great truth in the phrase Mr. Mason quotes, But it is a truth that must be interpreted in a great way. Construed in. a little way, the phrase is an absurdity, fpr no government was ever maintained with the literal consent of the governed, the American republic least Of all, Wpnjeni men under 21, Chinese, Jndiang, residiente of the, territories, unnaturaUzed optners from foreign l^ads, noae of them have any hand in our government in a literal way, anc yet by common consent human liberties and human rights ap set forth in the deelaralfipn kg,m m>t been Abridges]. JfocJ JiWe t «pUntry lor pu.YpKjge,8 pf ftg$rftB4l?eSMM!!t de- by to THE succession to Senator Gear's seat is being discussed very cautiously by the state papers. Every thing seems to hinge on the senator's health. If he is in full vigor the impression is that he will bo re-elected. If he collapses the impression seems to be that a hal dozen men will have commanding strength. Among them are Col. Hep 1 burn, J. F. Lacy, A. B. Cummins, Geo. D. Perkins, and J. P. Dolliver. IN THIS JJEiaHBOBHOOD. W. E. G. Sanders of Emmetsburg sails for Scotland Jan. 14. The supervisors of Sac county have voted $200 to help the county fair. Will Norton, Mrs. A. L.
