Confident That the United States Win Keep Faith With the Cubau People No Fears of nil Upris inn Arc Felt Havana March 16 Secretary Root said when interviewed that lie had come to Cuba for two reasons In the first place he desired to see for himself the working of the various departments civil and military and to investigate so far as possible the character of the work accomplished In the second place he desired to see as many representative men as possi ble including all the business inter ests in order to feel that he was in personal touch with the requirements of the island lie went on to say that he had at all times closely followed all the re ports regarding Cuba but he had always felt assured that in respect to many matters definite knowledge called for personal contact lie now felt that the Cubans had done won lets considering the nature of the strife that had devastated the coun ry for so long a time Their con bet and amiability had greatly im pressed him ami he was satisfied rom all that he had seen that they were capable of selfgovernment It is necessary of course to pre arc for this said Mr Root hJ practical experience Nor should it c a cause for surprise if the first au icpai elections should not bring o the surface the best elements ol he country liven in the United Hales those who would naturally be upposed to take tn active interest in olitics arc found attending to other natters on election day This work f preparation is deemed necessary veil by the most radical Cubans As ooii as the proper explanations are lade to them they recognize that ime must elapse before a race uuuc uaintecl with the simplest forms ol jovernuieht will become abi to mall igc public affairs absolutely without assistance There is no doubt that the United States will keep faith with the Cuban jcoplc iiril the joint resolution oi justbxactly when it is impossible to say The municipal elections which will take place on May 1 will prove the irst lesson The object is to give inu jicipalitius home rule in the very broadest sense making each si Ifsup jorting and matting the elected of ficers answerable to their own people only for the proper expenditure of funds It is desirable as far as pos sible to decentralize all municipalities From Havana control The American officials would then only leave advis ory and supervisory duties The city of Havana would then tone into the same category with other cities The military department of the city would be abolished and this would enable the elected mu nicipal government of Havana to take the necessary steps to refund the debt to obtain a new loan and to rarry out the works of sewerage and paYing which arc necessary and which should be commenced as soon as pos ible Probably this work will commence in the early autumn Referring to the reports of possible trouble in the island Mr Hoot said These reports arc the result oE hysteria or are circulated by those who for personal ends wish to see turmoil There is a

put a stop to Mabinis in tercourse with the public The local ami foreign press consider his recent utterances calculated to incite the Filipinos to a continued revolt and prejudicial to American control Flores who has just arrived here says he comes trusting to American leniency and that he would not have dared come to Manila if Spain were yet in control lie cherishes the hopes and aspirations which actuated him when in the field and desires to watch congressional action upon the question of the Philippines The in surgents he says do not expect to vanquish the Americans but arc maintaining resistance with the idea of forcing congress to accord them the best possible terms A number of representative insur gent leaders from different parts of Luzon have recently been in confer

paralyzed and there is a general scarcity of food The funds for maintaining this guerrilla warfare arc collected from the various towns of the island whether occupied by the American or not even including Manila In the province of Albay the insurgents have ceased harassing the Americans owing it is reported to a conjtinueing and looting The natives arc tlr ing of this sort of thing and

hands Imperial governments do likewise A republic fosters the diffusion of both wealth and power among the many and is the organized foe Gif monopoly An em pire distributes the honors advantages and perquisites of official tion among the few who stand nearI the throne Trusts seek to install offieiallpositionadvancement against all except their known apologists To all intents and purposes an empire is a governmental trust and a kindred financial system and all empires have suchis the most eilicient instrument in its equipment of tyranny The philosophy of republics is expressed in the maxim Equal rights to all special privileges to none If our republic is to live it must have a money system not copied from empires but equal to the broad and generous character of its fundamental laws Trusts concen trate into a few hands not alone the profits of industry and trade but sinews of war and political power fall into their keeping sequent to heart less commercial conquest It is the natural connection of consequent to antecedent Having excluded the many from profitable employment they find it an easy task to advance and wrench political power from the excluded classes In their origin and throughout their development trusts great and small are essentially imperialistic Their fruit however alluring and tempting ripens only in the deadly shade of despotism They are simply intoler able in a country whose settled policy is that of freedom A republic whose industries are dominated by trusts is already stricken with a fatal malady a deadly paralysisand can only be rescued by united and heroic action Where the leading industries are dom inated by trusts the government maybe republican in form but it will be found to be monarchial in spirit and in administration The trust in its last analysis and best definition is simply organized criminal aggression in and the golden rule those divine restraints which should qualify and temper all human trans actions are excluded from its busi ness code Its law is force It holds no parley with its victims It looks to a large military establishment and not to the affection and support of the people for safety It demands that the plundered classes shall be held in subjection The trust is full brother to militarism Time twain are of one blood and both are black with the guilt of gain Each in its sphere destroys human life and lays desolate human habitations The skull and crossbones or crouching panther should be blazoned as a trademark across the door of the council cham ber where trust magnates and bene ficiaries meet to plot the plunder of m ntdnd The East India company was the first great chartered monopoly known among English speaking people It was organized solely for the criminal exploitations of the defenseless in habitants of India It has spawned its voracious progeny over all chris- tendom Edmund Burke says the company was a state disguised as a merchant It gradually absorbed and exercised all attributes of sover eignty belonging to the British em pire Although a mere corporation yet by act of parliament it was clothed with authority to levy war and conclude peace Our trusts exercise similar power They use the government as their policeman From the days of the East India company to the birth of its last lineal descendant in New Jersey in this year of Our Lord the growth of the whole trust family has been one unbroken evolution in crime it is simply a highly developed spe cies of amphibious piracy made per fect by methodical selection and stimulated to a development which enables it to act with like efficiency upon sea or land Piracy was regarded as le gitimate industry for centuries just as trust and trust depredations are now regarded in the opinion of many The pirate and the romoter of trusts are related in blood and blood will tell Their mission is the same plunder The bloody rover of the taa cleared from no port He represented no state or sovereign His sword and cutlass constituted his commission Finally all nations rose and drove these freebooters from the seas They were forced to do so or sur render the common highway of na tions to tthroats and the dominion of the black flag But the trust pirate of today carries letters of marque is sued by states which are members of the federal union and in some in stances by the federal government itself Wherever they exist they are always managed by the conservative classes of society who constantly dote on law and order They de light to have people accept without murmur the station to which provi dence has assigned them It was ever so with their prototypes Noth ing so delighted the pirate as to seethe merchantman he was pursuing haul down its flag and come under one management without struggle It was not battle but booty they cherished orderly surrender and deplored organizedresistance above all things They had regular organizations among themselves each lotilla its prescribed territory or sea limits which were not to be en civached upon by other pirates only a limited number of vessels were per mitted to engage in the business and dividends were declared and booty distributed at the termination of each cruise Kings courtiers and crown counselors often connived at these bloody ventures Highly pious people frequently furnished the means to equip piratical craft and shared in the division of spoils But while they furnished the money to equip they always left the ugly svork to profes sional cutthroats Like many trust magnates of today they kept their conscience at home as unimpaired capital for use in benevolent and edu cational enterprises But let us examine briefly the out line of the great central money trusts which is just now in process of final development in congress It is at this time tugging at its tether anxious to spring upon its victims It would be doing violence to philology to call it an octopus as it has more than eight tentacles or legs Myriapod would be a better classification The myria pod is described in zoology as a many jointed nocturnal carnivorous and very active animal with powerful bit ing jaws and a pair of feet for each segment of the body The similitude seems perfect The four controlling powers of gov ernment under our constitution are 1 The power to declare to war 2 The power to lay and collect taxes 3 The power to regulate commerce among the states and with foreign nations 4 The power to coin issue money and regulate the value thereof and of foreign coins Can we not see that the power which controls the money output of a nation has in its hands the con trolling attribute of sovereignty and holds the whole body of the people and all lines of business at its mercy There is no more pitiable spectacle in this world than a highly organized state of society rising in torment for want of an independent system of finance Once you allow the banks to assume and exercise this sovereign function of determining the money supply you have assisted them to drive from the field their only possible competitorthe government handsIFor we all know there can be no war without the purse no adequate collection of taxes without a nimble cir culation of money no commerce worthy the name without an adequate circulating medium to facilitate it In the case of ordinary commercial trusts combinations strangle and crush competition But the money trust cannot reach its end in this way The government with all its plenary power over the whole question stands squarely across its pathway How to get Tid of this supreme and omnipo tent rival in the money industry is the great question which the associated banks now have in hand In fact with this class of men it has been this uppermost question in this nation for more than 100 years since Thomas Jefferson crossed swords with Alex ander Hamilton upon this very ques tion in the cabinet councils of Presi dent Washington The contest has al- ways been the banks against the mint the corporations against the people from that day to this The bank won the first round 111 leaped into the field nearly 12 months ahead of the mint But it lost caste under Presidents Tefferson Madison and Jackson and there has been a pro tracted struggle ever sinc If they can as now proposed strike down all theIready within their control and will there remain held simply as a re demption fund and largely in the shape of gold bars ready for export to Europe then they will have a clear field with all rivalry eliminated This will create a vast artificial vacuum a law made vacuum which the trusts will be authorized to fill with its own productits watered dollars when it suits their imperial purpose The money trust is a law made trust and it is the foster parent and lifegiver to the whole brood of vampires that are now sucking the good red blood of legitimate tradeGen J B Weaver in National Watchman Mt Vernon Signal FRIDAY MAR 23 1900 Published every Friday sEDGAR S ALBRIGHT V 0 S

that Col JacK Chinn fired the shot that killed Gov Gcebel We do not believe there is one affidavit of the like much less fifteen No sane man will believe for one moment that Col Jack Chinn killed his devoted friend Agaiu Col Chinn was to Goebels left and a little behind and the ball that struck Goebel hit him between the right nipple and the right armpit The place where the ball comes out is always the larger as was shown in the ex it on his back The lint from his clothes was carried in on front side showing the ball must leave entered in front The hole in the back war lower than the one in front and Col Chinn was a taller man than Goeble A still greater and more conclusive proof that he was shot in front is shown by the fact thai the bullet passed through oue of Gov Goebels ribs and the edges of the hole through the bone were bent inward which proves beyond all doubt that Gov Goebel was shot from the front and not from the back Seven phy sicians will testify to this fact Pay no
