McKinley's Great Victory.
The Illinois battle has been fought
and McKinley has won. This probably
means that the presidential nomination
will go at St. Louis to the Ohio candi
date, If. not by acclamation, then not
later than the second ballot. The peo
ple of every section appear to be for
him, with an enthusiasm which not
even the politicians, with all their ef
fective political mechanism and com
mand over the arts of manipulation,
can suppress or Ignore.
It will hardly be claimed by the sup
porters of Major McKinley that the
amazing popularity of his candidacy
rests on personal grounds. As a man
he Is amiable, courteous, and unques
tionably honest. No syllable, of scandal
has ever been whispered against cither
his private or his ofllclal life. He has
emerged from a score of years' activity
In politics under circumstances which
leave no doubt as to his entire Integrity
and conscientiousness. In his dally In
tercourse with people he attaches men
to him, and so far as we know he Is al
most wholly without personal enemies.
Yet It Is not alone the personal quality
of the man which can account for the
remarkable present demand for his
To attempt to explain that demand
In all Its bearings would be to exceed
present limits; but the chief reason
very obviously is that McKinley's can
didacy has filled the public imagination
with the notion that the surest way to
undo, in 1S9C, the mistake of 1S92, will
be to honor the man whose prosperity
creating handiwork was then rejected
and reviled. The man is identified with
the Idea; the popularity of the one is
the vindication of the other. As has
been appropriately remarked, the peo
ple recognize that in William McKinley
they have a candidate for president
whose very name is an all-sufficient
Persons close to the speaker Intimate
that Mr. Reed would, at a pinch, be
quite satisfied with the vice presidency.
Let us hope the pinch will come.
Senator Davis of Minnesota delivered
before the Amerlcus club of Pittsburg
m Monday night a powerful speech
upon the subject, "Progressive Repub
licanism." Every word of It went
straight to the mark of political com
mon sense, but there were one or two
paragraphs which we deem worthy of
special notice. For his central theme
be chose the Idea of protection, not
alone the levying of revenue duties oa
Imports so as to discriminate in favor
of the home manufacturer, but conslst-
ent, progressive, all-round protection
for American as against foreign inter
ests. Said he:
"I would protect the shipping inter
ests of the United States on the high
seas until the constellated glories of
that flag should blaze once more in
skies from which they faded long ago.
We have protected our coastwise mar
ine until Its tonnage Is the greatest In
the world. Is it not worthy of atten
tion that the tonnage fn ship construc
tion on the great lakes, under protec
tion to our coasting trade, is nearly
equal each year to that on the whole
length ' of our 12,000 miles of ocean
coast? The freight money of our coast
ing marine Is paid to American owners,
masters and seamen. Why not protect
those who go down to the great deep
In ships and flee, as with the wings of
the morning, to the uttermost parts of
the sea? Why not pay to the citizens
of the United States the scores of mil
lions of dollars in gold which are now
annually drained from us Into the cof
fers of foreign shipowners and under
writers? . . ,'
"I would protect agriculture to the
Utmost limit. I. do not believe In send
ing half way around the world to Aus
tralia for the fleece of a sheep, the ex
pense of Its production having been
paid to Australian farmers and labor
ers,, to be transported In an English
fessel to 'an English factory, woven
!hee by English laborers, and thence

"Nor can I be convinced that we need
)uy anything made of English, Belgian
. iwtdlsh Iron. Z would save Minna-
sola Iron smelted by Pennsylvania coal;
American wages paid to American men
to build American homes; so that
every engine, every battleship, every
structural beam, every tool, every nail,
every length of the rails which have
clamped together all the communities
In this land with bands of unbreakable
steel, shall be of American production
by the efforts of that capital and labor
which haw raised the iron giant of
civilization from his trance In the mine,
which have forged his refulgent and
puissant armor, which have breathed
into his colossal limbs a nation's
strength and power, until he stands,
'clad in complete steel,' the regnant
guardian of our country, the champion
of Its prosperity."
Upon the currency question Senator
Pavls took the position that under pres
ent conditions the only safe plan for
this country Is to maintain the gold
standard, and predicted that the Re
publican rarty would pUce Its nominee
"mon an unequivocal declaration for
sound, honest money, which shall be of
equal and invariable purchasing and
liquidating power throughout the
There was a time when the currency
question did not vex us. when discussions

when the people of tho I'niled dtates

a portion of the sttrpliis revenue pro
duced by protection by Republican legis

years. During that period the excess of
exports of merchandise over imports was

foromost manufacturing nation in the
world. Twice in our history the
national treasury has become the count

lays of the administration of James
Huchanan, and, next, almost continuous

(Jrover Cleveland. The national bunded

government hits been compelled to
take the guaranty of Hothsrhlld that the
gold in its treasury shall not for a stated
period be drawn below a certain sum.
These bonds run for thirty years. The in
terest upon them will nearly equal the
principal. Five hundred millions of dol
lars must he paid by the American people

It will bo observed that the gentle
man from Minnesota follows Major Mc
Kinley In the argument that the cur
rency problem will begin to adjust Itself
the moment there is such an arrange
ment of the American tariff aa will
throw the balance of trade In our favor.
Thus he holds that the paramount duty
of the Republican party is to restore
reciprocity and protection, and wait
until the benefits of that restoration, as
thoy shall diffuse among the people, will
render It safe for congress to undertake
to make conservative modifications of
the present di fective currency system.
While this line of counsel will probably
displease tho extremists of all kinds, It
probably voices the sentiment of a large
majority of the Republican masses, and
Is therefore likely to prevail.
Mr. Ilanity's convention may pre
tend to want a tariff for revenue only;
It will not be forgotten that Mr. Ilar
rity's party has given tho country a
tariff for deficit only.
Dallying With Cuba.
It is a significant fact that no per
son who has lived or traveled In Cuba
takes stock In the hypothesis that the
rebellion on that isiund can be termi
nated by the granting by Spain to the
Cubans who are now In arms of certain
rather high-sounding but practically
meaningless political concessions. Ev
ery evidence before the American peo
ple from competent witnesses tends to
prove that Cuba can place no reliance
upon Spanish promises, and that there
fore the Insurgents will continue the
present war either until they succeed
In wresting Cuba wholly from Spanish
control or until they are themselves
This being true, how absurd becomes
the reported overture of President
Cleveland to Spain politely suggesting
that the two pur ties to the Cuban war
submit 'their grievances to him for
peaceful adjudication. The resolution
recently adopted by congress called, It
Is true, for the proffering by the Ameri
can executive to Spain of his peaceful
ofllces in behalf of Cuba, but it said, In
plain if In unwritten words, that the
failure of a peaceful overture would be
the signal for such a recognition by this
government of the struggling patriots
of Cuba as would soon bring their bat
tle for freedom to a successful close.
Conventionality In diplomatic Inter
course requires between governments a
certain delicate indirectness of lan
guage, but In the present case the tem
per of this republic, underneath the Bof t
phrases of Its diplomacy, la for prompt
and effective assistance of the Cuban
It Is possible that Mr. Cleveland
wishes by a show of obedience to the
letter of the Cuban concurrent resolu
tion to evade obedience to Its palpable
spirit. In that case, the only thing
which the country can do Is to await
with such patience as it can summon,
the advent next March of a president
not superior in his conceits to the plain
mandates of his countrymen. But If
the present executive bo really solici
tous to do his full duty, let him desist
from his rainbow-chasing In the Im
possible direction of arbitration, and
proclaim at once the official recognition
of the fighting Cubans as belligerents.
In relation to the American, Ham
mond, who went down to the Transvaal,
Intrigued agalnBt the government, got
caught and Is now sentenced to death
for treason, Senator Hill and a few
other publlo men are disposed to be
come excited, but the majority of the
people of this country, wo observe, are
keeping quite calm. They reason it out
that If Hammond .'doesn't have sense
enough to behave himself In a foreign
country his American citizenship af
fords no Bttfllclent excuse why he should
not suffer the consequences.

CLEVELAND AXD CUBA.
Wellman, In the Times-Herald.
Washington, April 26. There Is a strong
feeling here that President Cleveland is
trifling with the Cuban question, and that
his current attempt to mediate and to
bring about reforms in the Island are pre
destined to failure. History is now repeat
ing Itself. The efforts made by president
Uralit and Secretary of State Hamilton
Kish to induce Spain to settle the former
Cuban Insurrection by granting reforms
to the colony were treated by the Spanish
statesmen In uuthurity precisely as tha
present premier at .Madrid is treating tho
well-meant but ineffective ettorts of Pres
ident lieveland and Secretary Olney lu
the same direction, lu other wolds,
Spain is insincere, diplomatic, slippery.
The Spanish government Is exceedingly
polite to the United States. There Is noth
ing else In the world which the Castillan
diplomats are so fond of as graceful com
pliment, sweet words und friendly expres
sions. It Is their favorite way of throwing
dust In the eyes of their neighbors. J have
Information to the effect that Secretary
Olney has no hope of home rule heiHK of
fered Cuba, He does not believe the Span
lards will go that fur. He is also suspi
cious thut the reforms which Spain ex
presses a willingness to offer the colony
will ultimately prove delusive. In other
words, the stntesmen at .Madrid, noted the
world over for their insincerity und in
direction, are merely playing with tho
Whaf is the trouble with Mr. Cleveland?
Why does he not respond In an effective
way to the plain demands of American
public sentiment concerning Cuba? I
think 1 can give at kait a measurably
satisfactory solution of the mystery. Mr.
Cleveland's predominant trait as a public
man is combatlveness. If there was not
some one or something to quarrel with
he would llnd it Impossible to be happy.
Of lute his fad has been antagonism to
congress. The president Is disgusted with
congress, so are all his cabinet ottlcers,
every one of whom tukes his cue from
the chief. I am told hat Mr. Cleveland
spends half his time cursing "the Idiots
on the hill," meaning the senators and
representatives who hold forth In tho
big national statehouse on an eminence
a mile and a half from the executive man
sion. Nothing that congress does pleases
Last fall Mr. Cleveland had determined
to take a hand In the Cuban affair this
spring. He was going to give Bpuln the
winter as a day of grace, he was going to
hold her to the promise made by the Span
ish minister here to suppress the Insurrec
tion In three months. The president looked
forward to Cuban intervention of some
sort as one of the great cards of his ad
ministration, anil he did not fall to cal
culate how much effect it would have
upon public opinion In the elections of '!).
His great fear was that congress would
meddle In the matter. Last fall when the
representatives of the Cuban Republic
came to Washington they were warned by
well-informed friends not to make an ef
fort to secure action by congress. "It Is
the president you must look to for any of
feetive action." they were told," and If
congress meddles with the question the
president will be offended. He will turn
against you out of pique."
Mr. Hitt never said a thing more bright
or true when he said the resolution passed
by both houses of congress by a voto al
most unanimous would be "a mandate
upon anyone but a king." Cut Mr. Cleve
land Is more than a king. He Is drover
Clevland.' Instead of listening to con
gress, Instead of being moved by Us
voice, he resents the Interference of that
body. He thinks congress should attend
strictly to Its constitutional business, and
let foreign affairs alone. Every speech
made In congress for Cuba helped to turn
Cleveland to the side of Spain. Every fuet
adduced as a reason why this government
should take some effective action to stop
the war and bring about Independence
drove Cleveland farther and farther from
his purpose. It is perfectly sate to say
thnt If congress had tnken the initiative in
the Venezuelan matter and demunded ap
plication of the Monroe doctrine, Mr.
Cleveland would have found an excuse tor
Ignoring the request. It is also quite safe
to say that If congress had let Cuba alone
the. president and his able secretary t,f
state would by this time have formulated
the mediation and reform communique
recently transmitted through Scnor de
Change In the view, In the attitude of
mind, In tho sources of Information sought
and given credence to, wns noticeable In
the administration Just as soon as congress
look up the Cuban matter. Before con
gress "meddled." as Mr. Cleveland puts it,
there was a alneero desire on the part tr
the administration to get at tho truth of
the situation In Cuba. There was a fee
ing that the reblllon had gone so far It
could not be suppressed without virtual
destruction of the Island. There was a
feeling thut even If the present rebellion
were crushed another would soon break
out. and that permnnent peace and order
in Cuba were Impossible. Hut after tho
"meddling" of congress, members of the
administration, taking their cue from the
president hlmnelf.'ndopted more und morn
the Spanish view. Where Senor Duptiy tie
Lome hail ut. llrst found his wny dlfllcult
and his trained cyo perceived great dan
ger. It suddenly became easy. All that
he had to suy was readily believed. It Is
a lamentable fact, but a fact nevertheless,
that at the present time the administra
tion view of tho Cuban rebellion Is that
the Insurrection Is sure to fall; that It is
not supported by the Cubans or wealth
and Influence; that It is participated in
chiefly by Irresponsible negroes rnd ad-'
venturers; that If by any chance the re
bellion should succeed Cuba would be
worse off than under Spanish rule, because
negro domination would follow a military
government. President Cleveland has
come to the conclusion that wlU Inde
pendence Cuba would be a second 8an Do-
Thus the oresldenl of the Vnlted State
baa taken a stand contrary to that of av
great mtlorily or the people ami or con
gress. The president may be rlghf, but
the friends of t'uba complain ol1 the meth
od by which he baa reached his conclu
sion. S:nce congress "meddled" he has
listened to but one side of the argument.
Ills recent ertort to Induce Spain to accept
mediation or to extend reforms In- Cuba
was proiosed only after full discussion
with the Spunlsh minister here. It as
nrKiied in a wholly friendly spirit on both
sides. There was nothing In it to which
Hpaln objected. There Is small chance
that it will amount to anything. Ho fur
as the president is concerned, his hobby
of "getting ahead of congress' appears to
have led him into an attitude which the
people are not likely to Indorse. At the
same time it is only Just to Mr. Cleveland
to say thut he believes the Venezuela af
fair with Ureal Krituln should bo dis
posed of before we seek any new inter
national troubles,. and that his recent prof
fer of Kood olllces may be only lae fore
runner of more decisive and effective ac
tion later on. Hut there is disappoint
ment In Washington lircause the presi
dent moves so slowly and ginueiiv, and
there is Irritation because he sets himself
up as more than the people, more than
congress, and more than a king.
