rynr".f The Commoner, Forum of the Weekly Press. Rathdrum (Id.) Silver Blade: Confidence has been restored all right enough, but we notice that every time Secretary Gage gets a surplus dollar in the treasury he has to turn it over to the bankers to keep it restored. Greenup (Ky.) Democrat: Freedom o speech Is too dear a possession to be given up. It is the bulwark of our liberties, the safeguard of our in stitutions. Anarchy must and will be suppressed, but it will not be done by destroying one jot or one tittle of our liberties as fearless American citizens. Rochester (Ind.) Herald: During the cam paign last year the republicans attributed every Filipino uprising to Bryan speeches. One of tho very worst slaughters of tho war has just oc curred and. will the republicans now lay the blame to Roosevelt who has just become president? Elma (la.) Democrat: Grover Cleveland has written a book on "The Plight of the Democracy." The worst plight of the democracy is that such men as Grover Cl...

Lovo a Sneers at Injunctions. That injunctions do not always enjoin is suggested by a story that comes from Cleve land, Ohio. One year ago Agnes Smith applied to the courts of Cleveland for an order restraining one James W. Cobb from pajing her the attention of a lover. The injunction was issued. Last week, however, Mr. Cobb and Miss Smith were united in marriage; all of which goes to show that love not only laughs at locksmiths but sheers at writs of injunc tions. It is announced that William Dean Howells is about to bring out a new book in which he will deal with "Heroines of Dickens' Fiction." The advance notices Had no inform us that the book will Heroines. deal with the heroines of Dick ens, Hawthorne, Thackery, Read, Trollope and others. It will be inter esting to read what Howells says about the heroines of Dickens. Dickens was a master hand at portraying male characters, but was not so happy in his representation of women. While some of tlic female characters in his novels w...

Sigh, it is lost on the air, The echoes bound to a joyful sound, Hut shrink from voicing care. Rejoice, and men will seek you; Grieve, and they turn and go.

T' I r The Commoner. 10 y,i. Are the Filipinos Capable of Self-aovernment? If the intelligence of the Americans is to bo taken as the standard by which .the capacity for self-government is to bo determined, then it is very doubtful whether any other people are capable of establishing and maintaining a re publican form of government. Every country has peoples of high and low order of intelligence, and if wo are to assume that tho men of lowest order of civilization are to rule, wo might exclude from self-government every nation On earth. It is tho experience of mankind, however, that the intelli gent classes in all the countries rule. That bolng true, there are very few peoples who are not capable of self government. It was Henry Clay who said that it was impossible for him to conceive of a people who were incap able of self-government. Of the republics of Central and South America, it is safe to say that, al though they may not be as perfect in the administration of affairs as tho U...

They're fighting the battle all over again; The big guns are booming once more; And Sampson today lingers far, far 'away While Schley bears the brunt as be fore. On the old fighter's track the entire snarling pack Have followed with hue and with cry, Till now, when he faces them all, they slink back From the sight of brave Admiral Schley. When heroes were needed, he stood on the bridge And met the proud navy of Spain. He .followed it on till the battle was won And its vessels went down in the main. When heroes are honored he's slighted and spurned, While others are praised to the sky. He yet is deprived of the glory he earned, Our gallant old Admiral Schley. But though he's insulted by puppets in power, The people are slow to forget. They only await a more fortunate hour To crown him in victory yet. His fame is secure. When the scroll is unrolled His name will be written on high 'Mid those of our gallant sea-fighters of old, Ma...

Commoner 1 ne WILLIATI J. BRYAN, EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. Vol. i. No. 40. Lincoln, Nebraska, October 25, 1901. $1.00 a Year An Inquiry Answered. A-reader asks for a definiti6n of the word "Democracy" as used by Thomas Jefferson, and also a definition of tho word "Republican ism" as used by Abraham Lincoln. If tho reader -will compare tho utterances of Jeffer son with the utterances of Lincoln he will find that Lincoln used tho word "Republican" in the same sense that Jefferson used tho word "dem ocrat." In fact, the followers of Jefferson were first called Republicans, and Jefferson . speaks of Republicanism as synonymous with Democracy. For instance, in 1790, in a reply to an address, (see Jeffersonian Cyclopedia, page 754,) ho said: "The republican Is the only form of govern- VYtYt4 tTitrV lei kf ao11it of irn OTlr? flonfir war with the rights of men."

up lT',-fB," r-Kfrt i-.r '40,000 troops Is about the right number to keep there for sorao years to come' It is strange to hear one who poses as a student of government say that the Filipinos will "probably never he American citizens in the broad sense that is understood by all that the term conveys to men born in the United States of white parents." Mr. Hull assures us that "the Filipino will be a citizen in spirit, patriotism, industry and education, and will be worthy of participating to the fullest extent in all the benefits of this government." How absurd it is for a mem ber of congress, occupying the conspicuous position Mr. Hull occupies in the public eye to say such things as these. When Mr. Hull says that the Filipino will probably never be an American- citizen "in the broad sense" he means to say that if the repub lican party has its way the people of the Philip pines will be kept in a state of subjugation by the United States, and that the colonial form of government, a fo...

The testimony introduced by the judge advocate indicates that there was a deliberate effort to keep Admiral Schley uninformed as to certain important details of the search for tho enemy. The much talked-about loop has been shown by the judge advocate's own witnesses to have been essential to the success of the great battle and it is sig nificant that the judge advocate rested his case after Captain Cook, one of his witnesses, had in answer to a question concerning Schley's demeanor said: "1 always regarded him as N an enthusiastically brave and patriotic officer.", That was the verdict of tho newspaper cor respondents who witnessed the battle of San tiago Bay.

Tho time set by Kitchener's proclamation demanding surrender upon pain of banishment when captured expired on Sep tember 15. That tho proclamation failed to accomplish tho object sought is shown by the following series of editorial comments from the Manchester (Eng.)

The little toy dog is covered with dust, But sturdy arid stanch he stands; And the little toy soldier is red with rust, And his musket moulds in his hands. Time was when the little toy dog was new And the soldier was passing fair, v And that was the time when our Little B'oy Blue Kissed them and put them there. "Now don't you go till I come," he said, "And don't you malce any noise!" So toddling off to his trundle-hed, Ho dreamed of the pretty toys.

s, The Commoner. 12 I Will Cure. You of Rheumatism No pay until You know it After 2,000 experiments, I have learned how to cure Rheumatism. Not to .turn bony joints Into flesh again; that is impossible. But I can cure the disease always, at any state, and for ever. I ask for no money Simply write me a postal and I will send you an order on your nearest druggist for six bottles of Dr. Snoop's Rheumatic Cure, for every druggigt keeps it. Use it for a month, and if it does what I claim pay your druggist $5.50 for it. If it doesn't I will pay him myself. I have no samples. Any medicine that can affect Rheumatism with but a few doses must be drugged to the verge of danger. I use no such drugs. It is folly to take them. You must get the disease out of the blood. My remedy does that, even in the most difficult, obstinate cases. No matter how impossible this seems to you, I know it and I take the risk. I have cured tens of thousands of cases in this way, and my records show that 39 out of 4...
