4). O.i give lb fallowing the cornet
political situation: '
For the fis time since the opening ol
tha Epanlsh war. the republicans la Jthe
administration and to congress admit
that their iiuet are broken and that they
are confronted with root end defeat.
Tlit complacency which eharacteriaad
all their expresses daring the war and
immediately following It bee given way
to contusion, and caauld admieeioa that
they can no longer foreaee sucoe to the
coming electim. Many of lite Iradsre o'
that party have stated la private during
the lest week that they will loe the
House undoubtedly and tbatall the inrfi-
eattons point to tbe defeat )i their can
didate for the presidency.
Nor lb, Sooth, E.st or Wt, their cor
reepoodeote make but ooe report to tbe
republican p 1 ticiau in Vahlugton
popular dissatisfaction and resentment
over tbe Philippine eituation. tbe con
tinuation f the war taxes and the re.
public a treatment of Puerto Rico.
In regard to tbe last is.ue, the repub
lican leadens admit tbat no matter what
action thev my tak no, there is do
escape 'out Beaeral condemnation.
Toeir predioi.-ot ie explained in tbe
second letitr of Speaker Henderson, if
they paei the Puerto Ricaa tariff bill,
the republican! stand condemned by
their own President tor violation of
their plain duty. If they establish free
trade with Puerto Rico, they are com
mitted to the constitutional principle as
serted by tbe democrats, tbat the consti
tution applies to fie newly acquired ter
ritory, and thy must give free trade to
tbe hordes of Asia takeu into ths
United States r-y tnsir piiiey of holding
all the Philippic.

A Cleveland clergyman Is confronted
with a serious difficulty in tbe way of
theological interpretation. In bis thank-tutu-si
over a donation Iroin John D.
Rockefeller fur piousnre-, he declared,
'Some reopl cbarge Jobn D. Rockfeller
with stealing the money that he gives
t ) the church Kven it he did ateal
he lanljit on the altar and thus eatiefled
I'." The Sttndard Oil prince repudiated
this Idea and compelled the retirement
uf the grateful clergyman. It is evident
that Standard Oil dors not wish to have
its product elevat-d to the sanctity
holy shrines, at least not yet.

At this moment the iseue that chiefly

expression in the bitter Opposition to
