ol the militia and to call out the military
reserve force or inch part thereof at her

The calling out of the militia and
military reeerve ha occasioned wide
spread wonderment. Old atorie' of
preparation against the continental com

Expected to Be the Most Important
Document of the Kind Since the
Civil War.
Wasiiingtok, Oct. 18. President Mc
Kinley'i message to the next congress is
expected to be Ibe most important docu
ment of the kind lince the civil war.
After the president'! Western trip, there
can no loniter be any doubt aa to his in
tentions regarding the Philippines, for it
has been amply demonstrated that he
will recommend that the islands become
the permanent property of the United
States, leaving their treatment to con
gress, but asking that a policy be early
outlined, in order to quench the Filipino
hope that there will be a change in pub
lic sentiment in the United States which
will result in the domination of the anti-
expansion element.
The president hope to see marked ac
tivity in the legislative branch of the
government, ai well ai in the army, and
will early take active steps to undermine
the purposes of the anti-expaneioniets,
undermine their cause, and force them
to fall back npon silver aian issue.
The president's sudden determination
with regard to the Philippine ia very
gratifying In adminis'ratiun circles, and
has upset the common supposition that
he wonld throw all the responsibility on
Aside from this Issue, the president
will probably recommend that legisla
tion be enacted which will provide for
tome control of the trusts and combina
tions. The establishment of a colonial
department to control affairs pertaining
to the new island possessions will also
be recommended.
While President McKinley has not
been disappointed In public sentiment
as he has found it during his tour, bis
openness in advocAiing a permanent
American lovereignty over the Philip
pine! and tin hearty indorsement of the
course by the people everywhere bat
occasioned the anti-expansionists tome
concern, not because they hoped for a
different policy from him, bnt because
they acknowledge him to bean accurate
measurer of public sentiment when he
get! among the people.
