MUST BWE A WEE.
The Democratic party attacks
the policy of our government in
the Philiirraines. It charges that
th- Republicans have refused to
say when the Filipinos shall have
Eelf-goveinment, and that sucu
refusal means that they have no
intention of fronting any such
privilege to that people
We wish the Democracy would
be more specific in setting out

in ll,c ihirippines. Really it

Parker undertakes to explain his
par,5 'o platform, and his own
opinions at the same time and, as
usual, only befogs the subject.
He says he is in hearty accord
with that plank of his party
pktfcrm which favors doing for
them what we have done for the
Cubans. He has already said
that by self-government, he
mec.ns independence. He now
qualifies this independence to be
such as the Cubans enjoy. He
would give them such independ
ence now, or, if this cannot be
prudently granted at this time,
he would give them the promise
new that it shall come the mo

their territory; they cannot make j

nor even self-government, but it

ans as by Democrats. It depends .
upon the Filipinos themselves. ;
The Filipino people are not and j
never were a nation. They have j
v less of nationality than had the j
ndian tribes, whlC hthe Colonists j
found in New England. They
are not so well qualified for self
government, for independence,
as the Southern negro is. Nine
tenths of the people are grossly
ignorant, having no sort of
understanding what self-government
comprehends. They must
be taught, educated on every
line: uwivic tiiwii uijuv..-
OCxx fcv v . .
Ne are engaged in teacmngi
them. We have expended many I
thousands of dollars establish- J
ing and conducting schools for
them. We are putting forth our
best efforts to qualify these
people for self-government. As
rapidly as it can be done safely
they are permitted to participate
in their own local government.
We cannot and we dare not
leave them to themselves. The'
task set us there, is Heaven im-j
posed and the American people;
will not abandon it. Judge Par-!
ker and his nartv could do no !
more than has been done, nor do
it differently and efficiently.
The people know this and" re
gard Democratic criticism as
merely the expression of negative
and obstructive purposes devel-.
oped in that party by long prac
tice. Filipino independence . must

A STRAW MAN.
The New York World alleges
that George B. Cortelyou, chair
man of the Republican National
committee was soliciting cam
paign funds for the great trusts
and mergers under promise that
they should escape the pains
and penalties of prosecution
under the anti-trust law.
No thoughtful person can fail
to see that this is only mere
partisan "mud-slinging." Not
for one minute would President
Roosevelt permit any thing of
the sort, and no one knows this
better than Mr. Cortelyou. Such
a promise would be worthless
without the assent of the Presi
dent. The is little doubt that the
mass of men having capital in
vested in legitimate business,
desire the success of the Re
publican party and are con
tributing liberally to that party's
campaign fund; neither is there
any doubt that those trusts
which fear the courage and
earnest purpose of the President
for themselves, are contributing
to the cause of the opposition
and working for the election of
Judge Parker, They know where
their interests are safest.
It is curious, however, to see
how every little obscure Demo
cratic sheet fairly rushes to the
assault on the World's man of
straw. The unanimity and

When disease sets up in the throat
it is likely to extend into the Eus-
t ichian tubes.
Tt- same conditions that cause
swelling or inflammation,, or the
secretion of thick and heavy mucus
in the throat cause the same pffeet
in the ear tubes.
Pheryngitis, Laryngitis, Rhinitis,
Tvnsilitis, Bronchitis and all the
many diseases affecting the mem
brane of the throat may reeult in
deafness or discharging ear?.
Scarlet fevtr, Diphtheria, Ty

of the throat which often extends to
thear tubes and cau3e3 deafness.
li is necessary to use an entire
ly different treatment, one .that
will reach the seat of inflammation
in the ear tube3 themselves and
that can be done by electricity.
Head noises indicate a condition
of impaired healing or that the
hearing is going to fail.
Whenever the treatment has
gained an influerce overhead noises
it is a certain sign that restoration
of hearing will soon take place.
Nearly every case of deafness
caused by disease in the Eustach
