The Civil Service Keform League ox
presses surprise that Governor Roose
velt has quit talking about civfl Bervice
reform in his recent political speeches.
Ab a matter of fact, there is nothing
more in civil service reform for RooBe
velt; hence he has retired from that
sphere of reform and has taken on the
mantle of a machine politician. 1
.The only explanation for the escape
from General Otis' press censors of the

that happen to the navy. His contract
is big enough without takini on more.
Why is it that while a year ago not a

one that meant to do more than an

Behind the trusts are the jreat finan
ciers, the great money trust that bun
coed the American people into electing
President McKinley on a platform de
claring for international bimetalism and
then construed the result as a declara
tion for the gold standard. Now they
intend to fool the people by having the
republicans declare against the trusts,
as they declared for bimetalism, for pub
lication only and not as an evidence of
good, faith. .. t
It may be, as the republicans inti
mate, that the signers of ' the Declara
tion of Independence were a pack of old
fogies whose principles are cow com
pletely out of date, but. the republicans
will find out next year that the majority
of voters don't think so. .

Governor Roosevelt, in his speech at

greed for office. When did the people
