fair will be held in July Mr Tom Taylor is in very bad health AFRAID OF THE ISSUE The republican journals are already shying at the Philippine duestion They know that they cannot defend the principles which underlie colonial ism and therefore instead of boldly outlining a policy and defending it they resort to subterfuge and misrep resent The Kansas City Journal one of the most unscrupulous of the republican papers shows its fright by crying out that the democratic substitute is in effect an outright repudiation of the fundamental doctrine on which Mr Bryan and his party made the cam paign of 1900 It alleges that the democrats wanted immediate dependence and that his Mr Bryans plan and the plan of the party was to scuttle and run If the editor the Journal will read the Democrat platform of 1900 he will find that the platform and the partys candI- dates favored an immediate declara tion of the nations purpose First to establlse a stable government second to give independence to the Filipinos and third to protect them from outside interference The party has al ways insisted that the establishment of a stable government in the place of the one overthrown comes before independence but when it is under stood that the government is to belong- to the Filipinos and not to us it will not take long to establish it This is adwlnistraIcratic policy Whose government is it to be That is the all important question The Filipinos do not want to be subjects they want a government of their own All they requires a promise of independence and then the formation of a government will be easy matter The Journal says As a matter of the kind of selfgovernment proposed for the Filipinos by the republi can bill contains about as much independence as the democratic measure The editor of the Journal knows better if he has read both plans The republican plan is drawn upon the plan proposed for the American colonies by King George 111 while the democratic substitute is drawn upon the plan proposed by the colonists No amount of humbug or hypocrisy about our duty or our destiny can cloud the issue The republican leaders deny the right of theFilipinos to self gov ernment and the republican plan contemplates perpetual dependence and vassalage for the Filipinos The deal ocratic leaders assart the right of the Filipinos to selfgovcrnmentandtheir capaity for it and the democratic plan contemplates the immediate promise and speedy grant of independence It is a contest between self govern meut and arbitrary power between a republic and an empire The more tho question is discussed the clearer this Issue will become and it Isnotsurprls ing that the republicans already con serous Of their position are inning to dodge the principles involved and run from thn question The

opened but from all accounts the only class of fisherman who are getting any return for their efforts are the lawbreakers the fellows who resort to the shame ful practice of dynamiting the streams and thereby destroying thousands in orderto secure a few fish There is a heavy penalty provided by law for any one found guilty of dynamiting the streams for fish and there is also a liberal standing reward for any Infor mation leading to the conviction of guilty ones and yet it seems almost impossible to break up the iniquitous practice Several of the streams in this county would afford excellent sport for real fisherman being naturally adapted to the growth of good flab were it not for the fact that the fish are constantly being destroyed by dynamite seining trapping and other illegal and unsportsmanlike means of capturing It would be a blessing If one bf these lawbreakers could be convicted and punished to the fullest ex tent of the law The example might be of benefit to others Sol
