And then Senator llano proceed

that grand old man, Senator Hoar,
of Massachusetts, spoken about a
month ago in presence of twenty to
thirty prominent business men of
Boston, in response to a request that
he give bis views on the political
questions of the campaign. Senator
Hoar said :

party upon this Philippine question,
but that is only one of the many im
portant questions, and as long as rr. y
party stands upon the foundation,
the principles of which were the be
ginning and baptism of its life, I
shall stand by my party. But I pro
pose to tear ihe mask from the face
of that hypocrite, William J. Brpan.
I call him a hypocrite because, like
ruy fiiends, Senator Lodge and Sen
ator Ilannn, I know the motive
which inspired the action on his
part to ratify the treaty. You told
me then, but I could hardly believe
it was true, and I now see that it
was true, and that he is acting the
part of a consummate hypocrite in
day as his fellow-copperheads had
EXCEPTIONAL TREATMEA T
I'ORTO RICA MS.
"The generous- treatment of the
Porto Ricans accords with the most
liberal thought of our own country
and encourages the best aspirations
of the people of the island," says the
president in his letter of acceptance.
And that sums up the I'orto Rican
question in one sentence. For the
United States has never treated any
territory it ever owned with the
liberality and generosity it has shown
to Porto Rico. Let us mention one
particular in proof of this allegation :
During the year 1899 there was col
lected and paid into the United
Slates treasury from the teriitories of
Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma
and Alaska the sum of 2, 154,004.
Of this sum there was returned to
these territories, for the wages of
federal officials and for other federal
expenditures, the sum of 11 C,3.'0,
leaving a net balance of profit to the
trcas'.uy of 11,787,654.18. The profit
from Alaska, alone, amounted to

The diminutive sheet opens its little
eampaisn with the appalling an
nouncement that "Portland and
vicinity will go for Bryan and all
that remains is lo count Bryan's
majority." The Lantarn's gall is
evidently in a vigorous condition.

BRYAN ON LINCOLN.
The Globe-Democrat, like Iff,
Bell in the Oregonian, has been
studying Bryan's quotations from
Lincoln with results that are not
strictly complimentary to either
Bryan or his running mate. The
G lobe Pe BJMttret says:
port taxes and internal revenue,
nearly a million dollars more than
we paid back in the form of federal
expenditure. Thus out of every
collected in the four territories less
than 1 goes back to be expended
in these territories. In other words,
over 80 per cent of the money col
lected by the (Jilted Stales, is
expended for the general purposes of

quoted by Bryan, Lincoln said that
