King Edward completed tlio pro gram of tho coronation festivities on August 10 by roviowing tho fleet for tho first time since his accession. Over a hundred war vessels wore assombled off tho coast of Portsmouth; and tho scouo was characterized by one writer as "a display showing tho progress of naval construction in tho Victorian era, from tho timo of tho early woodon vessels." A great deal of comment has beon occasioned by Emperor William's telegraphic offer to Prince Luitpold, rogent of Bavaria, to donate $25,000 from his private purse for buying works of art This act is treated as a constitutional question involving too right of tho emperor to intervene in local questions of tho confederate states. It Is reported from Berlin that the United States war department has bought of Herr Ehrhardt, a gunmaker of Dussoldorf, tho right to rearm the American field artillery with his new piece.

Dear Sir: Yours of August 6 Is received, asking my opin ion as to the proper course to pur sue with reference to the indorsement .of the Kansas City platform at the approaching Iowa convention. Ordinarily, I should think it would not bo quite necessary to ask me whore I stand on such a proposition. The democratic platform adopted at Kansas City is the last authoritative expression of tho principles of the democratic national party; and, as I look at it, it does not lie with good democrats anywhere to repudiate that platform, because in so doing, they re pudiate the principles of tho party. I do not believe, and I never have be lieved in Indorsing our principles in such a manner as to be...

Editor of Printer' Ink: I notice the Record says the Force people did not use the proper mediums in Philadel phia or else they would have the proper response before they kad to de pend on the street cars for it. They are right in one sense certainly. No advertiser in Philadelphia or nearby towns can afford to ignore tho Record, but if I had had the placing of the Force advertising I would have used the same tactics as they did. The Bul letin and Telegraph cover the Phila delphia field as far as women are con cerned and it's "dollars to dough nuts" that those two papers go in moro households than all the other papers combined; the business man takes the morning paper with him, but brings the evening paper home.

Jf-rWli'f I, The Commoner. , Y9 aitNo. 33. Constitutional Liberty & ";Sr:;:: 1 I t t Tho worst feature of the supremo court deci sion in tho Dowries caso Is that it strikes a blow at constitutional liberty. In attempting to de fend the position takdn by tho majority of tho court, Justice Brown used arguments which, if carried to their logical conclusion, would deny tho f necessity for a constitution anywhere. Accord ing to tho decision of tho court, congress can gov orn Porto Rico as a, colony, without constitutional limitations, so far as the taxing power is con cerned, and enough is said in the majority opinion to show that no political right is absolutely secure. Tho question naturally arises: If tho Porto RIcans do not need the protection of a written con stitution, why do the people of the United States need a written constitution? If we concede that the Porto Ricans are safe without a constitution wo must also admit that tho American people would bo safe without a constitu...
