3 r - June 6, I902 pinos, like the Americans,, prefer to bo men oven In poverty, rather than subjects In luxury. They prefer self-respect even at the cost of great Butter ing rather than be serfs under a millennial gov ernment provided by a master." "A self-imposed burden' says this Filipino, "however heavy, may bo borne with cheerful ness; it does not crush the soul. But when one la compelled to bear oven a feather weight the free spirit implanted by God in man begins to rebel. This was true of the American patrlbts of 1776.. The tax on tea did not seriously touch any one's pocket, but it touched everyone's pride." How very similar this is to some of tho things said by our own forefathers! Indeed, if one did not know that a Filipino were writing these things, one might suspect that they came from the pen of Benjamin Franklin. It will be remembered that when Franklin was asked who was to be the judge as to the propriety of a tax, he said: "Those who feel can best judge." Read what t...

Juno 6, iooa We are Informed by several esteemed republi can exchanges that divers republican senators will answer Mr. Hoar's speech. It is too bad that our language may so easily be bungled. Of course our esteemed republican exchanges mean that several republican senators will reply to Mr. Hoar's speech. They cannot answer it. The Sioux City Journal charges that in Jan uary, 1899, Senator Carmaek was responsible for the editorial policy of the Nashville Amorican and that the American declared that "Aguinaldo must and will yield to the United States." The Journal is as much mistaken in that statement as it is in its political policies. Senator Carmaek was not responsible for the editorial policy of tho Nashville American in 1899. Senator Carmaek sovored his connection with the Nashville Ameri can in 1892, six years before the Spanish-American war. A republican organ is always making mis takes when it depends upon its memory, and it does not dare investigate for the purpose of as cer...

Tho Wilson bill, with which tho republicans havo found so much fault, made adoquato provi sion for tho rovonues of tho government, but tho supremo court, by a majority of one, reversed tho unanimous decision of a provlous court and held tho Income tax law unconstitutional, thus talcing away a considerable part of tho rovonues which tho Wilson bill provided for. It was this that crippled tho Wilson bill; but for it that bill would havo yielded ample rovenuo for all tho needs of tho government. Only a part of tho monoy secured by Cleve land's salo of bonds was used to meet a deficit in tho rovonues.

But once Mr. Bryan had set foot upon Cuban soil, called at the palace to pay his respects to Military Governor Wood and made a visit to President elect Palma at the residence of Gen eral Gomez on Consulado street, this Bplrit of hesitancy changed.
