TRYING TO EMBARRASS THE ADMINISTRATION [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 February 1900
TRYING TO EMBARRASS THE ADMINISTRATION President McKinley should use his discretion about giving the information asked for by the Allen resolution as to the recognition by this government, and why recognition was refused, as on motion of Senator Spooner, the resolution was amended so as to request the President, "if not incompatible with the public interests," to furnish the information. This resolution has no other object than to embarrass the administration. It is a part of the game, which has been so unsuccessfully played. by the authors of the numerous resolutions, asking for all sorts of information concerning the Philippines, and deserve no answer. The sudden spasm of sympathy for the Boers is in reality a Democratic attempt to change the present friendly relations between the United ' States and England, for no better reason than for. the making of political capital among the Irish voters. At least two Republican Senators seem to have been trapped in this game, as Senators Ha...
FORESTRY IN CALIFORNIA. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 February 1900
FORESTRY IN CALIFORNIA. A great many persons in California have talked about forestry for years, but nothing has come of it. The State cannot be depended upon to keep up appropriations steadily, and, though the University of California has maintained at its own expense the two interesting forestry stations at Chico and Santa Monica, it seems evident that we are on the eve of much additional forestry work in this State. The Division of Forestry at Washington, under the able leadership of Gifford Pinchot, supervised by Secretary Wilson, is making a record for efficient, non-partisan, scientific work all over the United States. We have heard good Democrats say that the Department of Agriculture, and especially the Forestry Division, was worth perpetuating for a lifetime. Mr. Pinchot has visited California, Oregon and Washington, and has had a large number of young men, mostly Californians, from the State University and Stanford, at work -in our forests, measuring trees, studying soils,...

ON THE WRONG SIDE. [Newspaper Article] — Amador Ledger — 2 February 1900
ON THE WRONG SIDE. Mr. Bryan's vision has at last reached far enough from the grand center — self — to enable him to dimly realize that his party has got on the wrong side of the expansion question. This fact was fully demonstrated a few days ago. On that occasion he advised the Democratic Senators and Representatives to be very particular in their language = when discussing the question publicly. Later, in an authorized interview, he said: "I am not opposed to all expansion; each proposed annexation must be settled upon its own merits." ••':■•• : ,S" ". It is the old, old Democratic story. In every presidential campaign for years that party has favored, or pretended to favor, any old thing that promised, to catch voters, and has not hesitated to favor a thing in one locality and oppose it in another. _ Before the campaign gets fairly started, • Democratic speakers and editors are likely to be declaring that they have never opposed expansion at all ; that it is only the bugaboo they...
