The Sun writer says: "There seems to bo reason to believe that the blowing up of build ings throughout the city was the work of tho Bulgarian revolutionary committee, its purpose being to provoke the soldiery to savage measures of retaliation. The statement Is constantly re peated from the best sources that most of tho disorders in Macedonia can be traced to tho sinister ingenuity of the revolutionists. They seem to be acting on the theory that relief from tho rule of the Turk can be had only by creating such a situation that Russia and Austria will be ...

MAY 22, 1903. 3 THE LESSON OF 1894 The Commoner has pointed out the neces sity for faithful adherence to the principles of the democratic party. It has insisted that a victory which would betray the people, as they were "be trayed by the victory of 1892, would be more dis astrous to the party than defeat, because without accomplishing anything foi the country it would leave the party weaker for future contests. It has shown that a party must desire something more important than the distribution of patron ago to be entitled to public confidence. The last time patronage was dispensed among democrats it corrupted and led out of the party a large proportion of thoso who received the patronage the party can well pray to be spared from another distribution of that kind. But the reorganizes are constantly asserting th .t to win is the im portant thing to be considered, and that they, the reorganizers, hold the key to succ...
