out by saying that the amount required for the purchase of the land owned by the Friars would be between 3000000 and 7000000 and that he lid not care to be more exact in the amount because it would

spoilsmens or the civil service re formers side of the fence We believe that Senators Tillman and McLaurin hot exactly what they deserved when they were censured by the Senate but we do not believe that the Senate can con stitutionally suspend a Senator- It is not surprising that the Fil ipinos should not be satisfied with the 25 per cent tariff concession on their products sent to this country given by the bill that has just pass ed Congress They should either be given free trade with us or nothing The Boer envoys are again in this country They will find the people sympathetic as they have
