The bill introduced by Chairman
Pingley imposing certain taxes to raise
a war revenue and authorizing the sale
of bonds if money is needed to meet
sudden exigencies is not to be allowed
to become a law without opposition.
The f:ee silverites in congress, and es
pecially those in the senate, are devis
ing schemes of obstruction which they
believe will be effective. Senator Tel
ler declares that he does not believe
the house bill can pass with the bond
proposition included.
The bill is to be held up in order that
speeches may be made denouncing the
supreme court for having set aside the
income tax law of 1894, and that an at
tempt may be made to engraft on the
bill an amendment for the reenact
tnent of that unconstitutional tax as a
"war measure." Hut the position which
the free silverites propose to assume
regarding the bond issue is even more
condemnable. Senator Jones, of Ar
kansas, the chairman of the democratic
national committee, declares:
"I see no occasion for a bond Issue, be
lieve there is no necessity for it, and think
it will not be considered for a moment. If
the necessities of the case require it the
government might issue the necessary
quantity of greenbacks, which, by becom
ing a part of the circulation, would relieve
the present distressing conditions existing
throughout the country by increasing the
volume of money. In addition to that, for
one, 1 am willing to provide fur an Increase
in the volume of money by opening the
mints of the country to the unlimited coin
age of silver."
The intention evidently is, now that
war has begun, to open up a lire in the
rear and to harass aud hamper the ad
ministration instead of rallying patri
otically to its support like loyal Amer
icans. Jones and the other senators
who may pursue his copperhead policy
have voted for war. They have voted
to authorize the president to call out
men and to incur every conceivable ex
pense connected with the prosecution
of a war. Having done that, they pro
pose to leave him in the lurch by refus
ing to provide the money with which
the president is to foot all the bills they
have authorized him to incur.
They have done more than ",utithor
ize." They have ordered him to use the
land aud naval forces to drive the
Spaniards out of Cuba. They refuse
now to provide him with sound money
with which to pay soldiers and seamen
and buy the supplies which are needed
for them. They say to the president'
"Open the mints to silver, debase the
currency, fill the country with 40-cent
dollars, and then perhaps we will au
thorize you to borrow some of those
dollars to pay bills which were con
tracted on the basis of gold standard
Thesedemagoguesand latter-day cop
perheads who call themselves patriots
are enemies of their country. They
vote war and then make it almost im
possible to carry on war. They take
u'way with one hand what they give
with the other. They are insincere and
treacherous. They are not thinking of
a Cuban campaign and of American vic
tories, but of « rotten money campaign
in 1900.
The perfidious nature of their prop
osition is apparent. Instead of selling
bonds they desire more greenbacks is
sued, without further legislation to
make their redemption in jrold certain.
They wish to spend all the money in
the treasury, the gold reserve included,
so that the currency may be slumped to
the silver standard. They wish to de
stroy the credit of the government and
weaken its power to carry on war.
The fiite of these free silver obstruc
tionists will be the same as that which
befell the copperheads of the rebellion
period. They will be overwhelmed at
the polls by popular indignation. They
will be driven out of the house and the
senate. The party to which they belong
will be held responsible for their treach

CfNow that the public begins to see
the details of President McKinley's
course in the Spanish-Cuban matter,
the action of those who have been
making attacks upon him and his ad
visers because of what they assumed
was an unwarranted delay is reacting
in his favor. It is now clearly seen
that every minute of time occupied
since the destruction of tiie Maine has
bt;n judiciously and wisely utilized in
preparing for war. It lias been the con
stant cry of men in congress—and out
of it—for years that the country was
entirely unprepared for war, and it is
not surprising that when the president
and his cabinet found the necessity for
entering upon a war they recognized
the importance of preparing the coun
try for it as far as possible. The re
sult is seen in the conditions which
now exist, especially if they are con
trasted with those of CO days ago.—Cin

More dangerous, perhaps, at this time
than any Spanish fleet or tint ilia are the
senators and representatives in con
press who propose to hold up, if they
can, all war measures of finance or tax
a'ion that are not shaped according tc
tiieir various political and fiiiancia'
The man to give the signal for this at
tack from within the,lines was Senator
Allen, of Nebraska. The signal ap
penred in a resolution which Mr. Aller
introduced in the senate:
"That in the opinion of the senate no cir
cumstances can arise in the relations of the
I'nlteil States of America and the kingdom
of Spain that will warrant an increase of
the interest-bonded Indebtedness of this
government, or that wi'.l In any mannei
interfere in the reform of the linanclal af
fairs of the United States on lines laic?
down in the national people's party plat
form of July, lfcOC."
It is not from the extreme populists
cf the Allen stripe that embarrassment
to the administration and the national
interests is chiefly to be apprehended.
Of course there is no danger that con
gress will undertake to prosecute the
war exclusively upon the lines laid
down in the populist platform of 1S!)G.
But the disposition to use the present
opportunity to enforce or promote
crank ideas or pet notions or factional
or partisan theories is already manifest
in bills introduced since Allen led the
way with his impudent resolution; in
come tax bills, inheritance tax bills, sil
ver standard and silver bond proposi
tions, greenback measures, and so on
in great variety. They are all present
ed as war measures, and they are all
intended to complicate the war ques
tion with the issues that entered into
the last presidential canvass, and were
then determined for four years, at least
by the result of the election.
Let it be understood in advance that
any attempt in any quarter to embar
rass the administration and imperil the
nation's cause for the sake of this or
that financial theory is a crime against
patriotism sure to be visited heavily
with public indignation. The only is
sue now is with Spain.—N. Y. Sun.
The "Kndli'M Chain" HUM CeiiNed to
Revolve anil the Notion
IN Secure.
The United States treasury holds
$.181,000,000 net in gold, and new sup
plies have been coming l»y every steam
er from Europe. Our gold reserve is
now larger than at any other period
during the last nine years. The Amer
ican Economist contrasts this condition
of the treasury with that which wan ob
servable iu 1895, the year of the Vene
zuelan crisis. Then the net gold in
the treasury was $G3,2ti£,269, and we
were exporting gold to Europe in pay
ment of an adverse balance of trade at
the rate of $1,000,000 a day. Then Mr.
Cleveland's "endless chain" was in full
operation, n -3 its buckets constantly
were carrying gold abroad or deposit
ing it in American secret hoards.
There was confidence neither in the
tariff nor in the currency, nor 'R any
feature of the financial policy of the
government. The national pulse was
panicky, agriculture was depressed,
and manufacturing enterprises showed
hardly semblance of life. All classes
were dispirited and many a fanri.'.r felt
the pangs of hunger.
Now the "endless chain" has ceased
to revolve, confidence in the financial
policy of the government is unbounfl
e 1, and, but for the event of war, which
necessarily must diminish imports,
there would be a steadily increasing
surplus from tariff revenue. Tfte crisis
of war has found the nation i'.s a condi
tion of financial readiness whvrh is un
paralleled in history. Had War con
fronted us while we were uf der such
financial and industrial conditions as
prevailed during the Cleveland admin
istration the prospect would have been

Proposal to Tax Cor
Washington, May 13.—With the ex
ception of a few administrative fea
tures the war revenue bill is ready for
report to the senate. This report
probably will be made to-day, though
consideration of the measure will not
be begun before Monday. With the as
sistance of Senator Jones (Nev.) the
democrats had control of the finance
committee and adopted their amend
ments, which include a corporation
tax of M of 1 per cent., a provision for
the coinage of the seigniorage and the
issuance of 8150,000,000 of greenbacks.
The bond provision is eliminated.
It required little more than an hour
for the committee to dispose of the
democratic amendments. It was soon
made evident that Senator Jones (Nev.)
would vote with the democrats on all
their amendments and as his vote
turned the scale against the repub
licans, they did not enter into a stub
born struggle to prevent this consum
mation. The vote to strike out the
bond feature stood 0 to 5.
The amendments for the issuance of
greenbacks, the coinage of the silver
seigniorage and the taxation of cor
porations were all incorporated by the
same vote. The democrats changed
their rate on corporations at the last
moment, reducing it from y., to )i of 1
per cent. They made this reduction
because of the uncertainty as to the
amount of revenue the amendment
would produce. It was the generally
expressed opinion that the sum would
even at this low percentage be very
large, but there was no opportunity for
even approximating the figures. This
provision is a very comprehensive one.
It covers all corporations with a few
exceptions, imposing a tax of M.of 1
per cent, upon the gross receipts . Th
exceptions are charitable, educational
and religious institutions and strictly
mutual benefit associations, the exemp
tion to mutual concerns being made so
as to include only those which loan
money to their own members. Uuild
ing and loan associations were exempt
ed from the operations of the bill, but
the house provision dealing with this
matter was changed and the language
of the exemption in the Wilson-Gorman
act practically substituted for it.
There was some discussion of the
beer tax during the day, but it was de
cided to leave the matter as it passed
the bouse with an increase of the re
bate from sto 7}'t per cent. The pro
visions in regaril to the taxation of
bankers and brokers, bills of lading,
inheritances, "futures,"' proprietary
medicinal articles, etc., were left as
previously fixed. The house provision
for a tax on mineral water was strick
en out entirely.
There was some discussion in com
mittee of the amount of revenue the
bill would produce. The estimate of
the democrat members placed the
amount at $150,000,000 from the revenue
portion. The coinage of the seignior
age would increase the amount to the
extent of S-t-,000,000 and the green
backs would make the total $842,000,-
000. or 8-12.000,000 in excess of Secretary
'■age's estimate of the requirements of
extra revenue to meet the first year's
expenses of the war. The bill hardly
will be recognizable by its authors
when reported, as it has been so gen
erally amended.
A Spanish Torpedo Bout Destroyer is Re
ported to Hitve Been Torn Asunder by
un Kxplosion of tier Boilers.
London, May 12. —A dispatch from
Gibraltar says a British steamer which
arrived there Wednesday reports offi
cially that on Tuesday evening she
passed a Spanish torpedo boat de
stroyer which was guarding Algeciras
bay and straits. Shortly after the
steamer passed her all the lights of
the destroyer were suddenly extin
guished, a terrific explosion followed
and the destroyer disappeared. The
disaster, the dispatch adds, was ap
parently caused by - the explosion of
the boilers of the torpedo boat de
stroyer. It is feared tbat all aboard of
her perished.
The Spanish torpedo boat destroyer
reported blown up near Gibraltar
probably is the Destructor. It is
classed as a torpedo gunboat. It was
of steel, built in 1887, and was 192 feet
(i inches long and was estimated to
have a speed of about 33' knots. Its
armament consisted of one :5.5-inch
gun, four (5-pounders and four Maxim
guns. She bad three torpedo tubes
