The democrats, who have already
beguu in wveral states to make un is-
Ki;e o! the var, will he promptly met
by *.!.** republican congressional com
mittee with the democratic record in
congress when that body was trying
to prepare for such emergencies as
have arisen. The Washington Times,
the only democratic newspaper at the
capital, on June 2'2 published a leading
editorial, in which it said:
"Since the outbreak of the Spanish war
they (the democrats) have committed about
every error possible, giving a grudging
»upport to the various Imperative meas
ures which followed the original appropria
tion of $30,000,000 for the national defense;
they lined themselves up almost solidly
against the war-revenue bill, and capped
the climax last Wednesday by casting the
bulk of their votes in opposition to the an
nexation of Hawaii, a consummation de
votedly desired by a two-thirds majority
in both houses of congress and four-fifths
of the American people, without regard to
"The result was plain. What was in
tended to be. and what was originally, a
purely American war has Jegeiitrand in
the eyes of the country into a republican
war with all that that implies.
"The republican president stands before
the world to-day as one pursuing a pa
triotic policy In the teeth of unswerving
democratic opposition. When victory
comes to him and Spain is humbled
in the dust; when America's possessions
are enriched by the addition of Hawaii, the
Philippines, Puerto Kico, and perhaps the
Canaries. Mr. McKinlt y can rise and truth
fully say: 'This is my work—mine ar.d the
republican party's. As we saved the Inlon
in lfctil, so now do we glorify it with vic
tory. Ours the triumph, ours, the spoils,
including a majority in the new house of
representatives." And the people on the
fcth of November will say 'Amen.' "
This was true, and it was left for a
democratic organ to declare it true.
The record will bear it out, and since
democrats are in their state plat forms
trying to make the war a political is
sue, the republican committee will ac
cept the gage of battle and goto the
Congressional ilecord for facts.
It will be shown that the democrats
voted against the war revenue bill and
a<g&inst the annexation of Hawaii,
and that democrats, in the closing
hours of congress, prevented consider
ation of a number of bills which would
have enabled the army to be better
cared for. They prevented by the ob
jection of Mc.Millin, of Tennessee, and
Underwood, of Alabama, consideration
of a. bill to organize a hospital corps
for the navy. They also prevented, by
the same means, consideration of a
number of bills reported unanimously
from the committee on military af
fairs relating to the conduct of the
war and the improvement of army fa
More than this. Congressman Hull,
chairman of the committee on mili
tary affairs, in the last, hours of the
session offered a resolution that the
committee on military affairs be al
lowed to sit during theadjournment of
congress and, make sueli investigations
of all army organization a.« might be
considered necessary, and be ready to
report to the house when it reassem
bled in December. In reply to ques
tions, Mr. Hull said that the committee
would lie expected to incur no expense
for the government, and that, though
they might have to visit, the army and
the camps, the members would be ex
pected to pay their own expenses.
The democrats objected to the con
sideration of this resolution at a time
when no bill or resolution could re
ceive consideration eXcept by unani
mous consent. It was, of course, never
adopted, llad it been adopted that
committee might now be at work in
obedience to democratic and mug
wump clamor for an investigation by
congress. The republican leaders here
and the administration have had no
lesire to make the war a partisan affair
and claim the whole credit for the re
publican administration and the re
publican party. But since the demo
crats in several states have followed,
the clamor of the yellow press, rene
gade republican and democratic, and
have made the war a political issue, as
did the copperheads in 1862, the repub
lican committee will accept it as an
issue, not by defending the adminis
tration in the conduct of the war, for
that speaks for itself in the victories
and n*w possessions of the United
States, but in showing that the demo
crats in congress gave "grudging sup
port to v&rious imperative measures"
and opposed others while it defeated
a- number by refusing unanimous con
sent for consideration when that was
the only method of getting them be
fore the house.
The republicans are ready to accept
the issue that this was a republican
war and that republicans compelled
the freedom of Cuba, the cession of
Puerto Rico, and the annexation of
Hawaii and the Philippines. They arc
also ready to accept all responsibility
for the conduct of the war and the
smallest percentage of losses ever
known in a war which has humbled a
nation and won such great results.—

Tlie Treasury 1» Strong.
Gold is getting - to be almost a drug
in the government market. Though it
is paid out freely at the subtreasuries,
it continues to pile up in Washington
in a way that suggests to some persons
the possibility of a monetary strin
gency. There does not yet. appear,
however, to be any real (lunge r of that,
the amount of money in circulation
seeming to be ample for all purposes..
At present the gold reserve in the
treasury is within a few millions of
the highest figures ever recorded, and
it probably will surpass them in a
few weeks. When all the proceeds of
the new bonds are in.the cash balance,
even allowing for a continuance of dis
bursements, cannot be much below
.$300,000.000, and considerably over
two-thirds of that amount will be in
gold. It is clear that the treasury is
in a very strong condition, and there
is nothing in particular to threaten
its strength in the near future. —Prov-

No doubt some thanks are due to
the treasury department for the suc
cecs of the "popular loan'' idea in
connection with the new bond issue,
as disclosed by the. process of the al
lotting oft i.e securities.
To be sure, the intent of the law is
plain enough. It reads:
"That the bonds authorized by this sec
tion shall he offered at par in a popular

the secretary of the treasury, as will give

lowance for such sales it still appears
that many millions of the new bonds
will go permanently into the hands of
small investors. The treasury depart
ment has faithfully discharged its
duty to the people in their behalf.—

"In official i|Uarters much satisfac
tion is expressed over the reports from
Madrid that the lower house of parlia
ment has passed the government bill
accepting the terms of the protocol.
The upper house had already passed
this measure, so that tlie last fear
of legislative opposition to the trans
fer of Cuba, the Lad rones and Porto
Kico is over. The authorities here feel
that this carries them by a danger
point, as it has been feared for some
time that the animosities in the Span
ish cortes would lead to the defeat
of the Sagasta ministry on the ques
tion of evacuating the Spanish islands.
There is little doubt that a general
line of policy was agreed upon between
the president and bis cabinet .it their
meeting Tuesday afternoon, but there
is good reason for believing that the
assertion that the decision was defi
nitely in favor of not permitting Spain
under any conditions to retain sov
ereignty in any part of the Philip
pine islands is based on a misconcep
tion. Members of the cabinet and
members of the peace commission re
fuse to discuss the subject with news
paper men. and, therefore, whatever
is said is based more or less on in
ference or roundabout information.
It is not doubted that the commis
sion will start the negotiations at
Paris with the assertion that we have
conquered Spain in the Philippines,
and that Spanish sovereignty has al
ready been forfeited there. This will
not, however, necessarily signify that
it is the purpose of the administration
to retain possession of the entire group
of islands, or to permanently deprive
Spain of all her possessions in the
Pacific. It is not believed that the ad
ministration has gone beyond the de
termination to retain the whole of the
island of Luzon, but it is understood
to be tlie intention of the president to
establish at the outset the right of this
government to determine the fate of
the islands and to name the conditions
under which a government shall be es
The matter of relinquishing posses
sion of the rest of the islands is in
volved with so many conditions to be
considered that it may become neces
sary to deprive Spain permanently of
all her possessions in that quarter. It
is understood not to lie a matter of
policy to acquire all this territory, but
it may become a necessity.

1h Something 10 he ( artfully Avoided.
Avoiding colds is an art which
should he acquired by every individ
ual, as it usually requires only proper
precautions. Colds are often there-
of some condition of the constitu
tion. or manner of living, or a lack of
mental hygiene. In the latter case,
people frequently encourage colds by
expecting and looking for them every
time there is a change of atmospheric
influence, such as often occurs daily.
Good mental resolutions and ali-
Fenee of undue fear of colds will do
something towards avoiding them;
but mostly the art is secured through
increasing the resistance of the body.
Colds are frequently caused by
draughts of air striking sensitive por
tions of the body, usually the back of
the neck, abdomen, feet and legs, as
these portions are perhaps the most
susceptible. To avoid this tendency
the skin should be toughened, so Ihat
it will bear cold air better; this is done
by daily cold sponge bathing better
than any other way. If this habit Is
taken up during the warm weather,
and kept up during the entire year, it
will do much towards exempting indi
viduals from colds.
People who have not acquired this
resistance will have to exercise more
pains to adapt their clothing and ex
ercise to tlie condition of the climate.j
fietting heated in changeable weather
renders the individual very much more
susceptible to taking cold. Practical
adjustment of clothing, exercise, rest
and protection, during the seasons
when colds are prevalent, will often be
a temporary measure against taking
cold, while, on the other hand, con
stant worry about one's inability to
adjust these conditions may be a cause
for its development.—N. Y. Ledger.
