Gems From His Letter of Acceptance It is our duty to avoid stealing and not to kill A war of conquest is as unwise as it is unrighteous It is not necessary to own the people in order to trade with them The highest obligation of this nation is to be true to itself The command Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel has no gatling gun attachment We cannot repudiate the principle of selfgovernment in the Philippines without weakening that principle here Can it be our duty to kill those who following the example of our forefathers love liberty well enough to fight for it The safety of the nation lies not in its armies fleets and forts but in the spirit which prizes liberty as the heritage of all men Boasting is the subterfuge of the inveterate who lacking the cour age to oppose error seeks plausi ble excuse for supporting it Better a thousand times that our flag in the Orient give way to a flag representing the idea of self government than that the flag of this republic should become the flag of an empire It was God Himself who placed in every human heart the love of liberty He never made a race of people so low in the scale of civilization or intelligence that it would welcome a foreign master Is the sunlight of full citizenship to be enjoyed by the people of the United States and the twi light semicitizenship endured by the people of Porto Rico while the thick darkness of perpetual vassalage covers the Philippines I Democracy strives for a civiliza tion in which every member of society will share according to its merits No man has a right to expect from society morn than a fair compensation for the service which he renders to society A colonial policy means that we shall send to the Philippines a few traders a few taskmasters and a few office holders and an army large enough to support the authority of a small fraction of the people while they rule the natives If this nation surrenders its be lief in the universal application of the principles set forth in the declaration of independence it will lose the prestige and influence which it has enjoyed among the nations as an exponent of popular governmentHeretofore this nation has been prompt to express its sympathy with those who were fighting for when civil liberty but now a war is in progress in South Africa which must result in the extension of the monarchal idea or in the triumph of a Republic the advances of imperialism in this country dire not say a word in behalf of the Boers The Bravery Woman Was grandly shown by Mrs John Dowling o f Butler PaIna three years

that has no waning Probaly If women knew what a rare delight it is for men to be able to re spect them more of them would try to win mens respect The average woman would lather have you to tell her you love her for the way her hair looks than to have you admire her for some noble deed About the keenest pleasure any woman can know is the wretched trick of taking a man away from her friend just to make him miserable There is no nastiness in the world that innocense dreams of but thank God there is more goodness in the world than vice can comprehend Passion forgets always love never There is a great deal of love with out marriage but there is a great deal more of marriage without love Unless a man goes around preaching a whole lot of stuff he wont practice the women put him down as a cynic In the first six month after she gets married a bride gives advice to all her batchelor friends after that she takes it from them A man can never understand how a woman can love him if he dosent love her a woman can never understand why a man shouldnt love her just be cause she doesnt love him Money makes the marriages go A little powder a little paint pcn ciled eyelash and a bold glanceheres- the downward side After a woman has damaged her own reputation ninetenths of her time is spent in trying to do the same thing for other women Youll find that a waman who is a success with a beardless youth has passed the time when she can do much with grownup men Nobody can talk long on one subject unless he knows nothing about it In love there are past and there are futures but there is mighty little pres entNot nearly as many souls are lost searching for light as light is lost in searching for souls Men and women can get along to gether very comfortably as long as they dont try to find out what each other is thinking about The reason there are so few men who will not stoop to make love to every woman they get in a corner with is that there are so few women who will not stoop to let them do it Marriage is a lottery and the prize is divorceOnly fools think they fool the rest of the world Every mother acts like no other woman but her and Eve had ever had childrenA would chose first t 0 seem younger than she is and next to be older than she seems On the stage the heroine can detect the heavy villain three miles away and she shuns him like a plague in real life she seems to think he

the United States coming in on the 4th of March 1901 will be Democratic or controlled by the united opposition to the Republicans is a strong probability ao cording to the calculations and claims of the Democratic leaders at congress- Ional campaign committee headquar ters in this city Secretary James Kerr than whom there is no shrewder nor more careful political reckoner in the country is positive In the assertion that if Bryan Is elected both houses of Congress will DemocraticChairman and Secretary Kerr are in close communication with every congressional district in the country from which they are receiv- Ing daily advices They are familiar with the political situation in every State and their most conservative cal culations give the Democrats or the opposition to the Republicans more than enough additional Senatorships as a result of the forthcoming November elections to capture the United States Senate A change of nine Senators will make the Senate a tie With the election of a Democratic VicePresident this change of nine Senators will be suffi cient to control The Republicans at present have a majority of eighteen but there will be thirtythree newly and reelected Sen ators to take their seats next 4th of March barring contest of title Of this number the Democrats count with almost an absolute certainty on a gain of seven with a doubtful column of six from which the probability is strong they will add the necessary two or three Senatorships to obtain the majority in the Senate The States to return newly elected Senators some of whom have already been chosen arc Alabama Arkansas Colorado Rhode Island Georgia Idaho Illinois Iowa Kansas Kentucky Louisiana Massachusetts Michigan Minnesota Mississippi Montana two Nebraska two Newhampshire North Carolina Oregon Pennsylvania South Carolina South Dakota Tennessee Texas Utah Vermont West VIrgin- Ia Virginia Wyoming and Delaware The States from which the Democrats are assured gains to the Senate are Colorado Idaho Montana two Nebraska Utah and Delaware The doubtful States from which sufficient Democratic gains are expected to be added to the above are Illinois Kansas Minnesota West Virginia Wyoming and Pennsylvania- In this class it is felt that Pennsyl vania should be included because in that State the Republican factions are even further apart than last year when they defeated Quay The

vain woman is to be feared for she will sacrifice all for her pride Trust not a vain womanfor she isfirst in her own eye A haughty woman stumbles for she can not see what may be in her way Trust not the woman that thinketh more of herself than another mercy will not dwell in her heart The Godshonor her who thinketh long before opening her lips Pearls come from the mouth- A woman that is not loved is like a kite from which the string has been taken she drives with every wind and comes to naught but a long fall A woman and a child are alike each needs a strong uplifting hand A woman that respects herself is more beautiful than a single s tar more beautiful than many stars at nightWoman is the ease for that whic pains the father she is balm for hi troublesA who mistakes her place can never return to where she was the path has been covered up from her eyes A woman desirous of being seen by men is not trustworthy fear the glance from her eye Give heed to her to whom children have come she walks in the sacred ways and lacks not love When first a woman loves she fears she fears not that to which she hasbe come accustomed A mother not spoken well of by her children is an enemy to the State she should nbt live within the kingdoms wall A woman without children has not yet the most precious of her jewels Give heed to the voice of an old woman sorrow has given her wisdom Speak not

which andd militarism were asked to sign and also to record their prefrence for President and these Issues alone The result is surprising Thousands upon thousands of coupons have been returned in a majority of which the signers have declared that although they voted for McKinley in 1890 they will vote this year for Bryan because of their annd militarism The great mass of the Germans in Greater New York cherish the same prejudice if prejudice it can be called against these policies of the present administration In the Fatherland they groaned under a military yoke they were forced into a

tf Trusts and Expansion If a Republican tolls you that it is a good thiug to Imvf a larp standing army you tell him tit until this campaign th IliiiMi cans have always pointed totlu advantage of not having a large standing army remind him that when a Republican President went into office we had an army of 25 000 soldiers and that the sam President asked for a standing ar my of 100000 soldies in Decem ber 1898 four times the size of the standing army when he was in augurated and then remind him of the fact that if we are to have imperialism we will never have a smaller standing army than we have now The same spirit that leads us to take possession of the Philip pine Islands and govern them without consent and tax them without representation will lead us to sieze any other lands weaker than we are If a Republican tells you that imperialism is the same as the expansion that Jefferson sought you tell him that Jefferson wanted to expand the limits of the republic and to build up the territory into States and that he wanted the in habitants to be citizens and to share in the guarantees of the Constitution while the Republican party has already enacted a law in regard to Porto Rico that rests upon the theory that outside of the fortyfive States the President and Congress have power as unlimited as any despot ever exercised in the history of the world ApplauseIf Republican attempts to justify the Porto Rican policy you tell him that when we form the people of Porto Rico they ha representatives in the Spanish Legislature and that we now re fuse to give them representation in our Legislature When wo found the Porto Ricans they had free trade with their mother country but now we refuse to gigt them free trade with the Unite States although they must sve tr
