rwm UBiRIARr AiFPBOPMATION.
At the city council meeting tonight
the question of aipproprlatlng out of
the funds of the city the monthly sura
of fifty dollars, or any other sum for
the support of the Dubllo library Is
likely to tie the leading topic of dis
cussion and consideration. While we
would have ft distinctly understood
that it is now, as It ever uniformly
has been the policy of the Astorlan to
heartily favor and encourage every In
atltutlon and public movement tending
to the culture and better enlighten
merit of the masses of our citizens, we
yet feel It our duty to respectfully and
earnestly remonstrate against a piece
of extravagance so manifestly and fla
grantly unjust end Improper, constder-
, lng the condition of the times and the
depleted state of the city's treasury.
Perhaps never in the history of the
city has the burden and strain of the
obligation to pay publlo taxes been
felt as tt lhas this year, and It Is en
tirely within the truth to say that
many citizens who never knew the
heavy hand of poverty before In their
lives, have been obliged to deny them
elves and families many of the com
forts, and some of the necessaries of
life In order to avoid the pains and
penalties of defaulted taxes. For the
olty council to take any part of this
blood money and apply it In the name
of public spirit cr benevolence to the
maintenance of the luxury of a free
library would be the height of folly,
and a downright wrong and Injustice,
Wthat matter 4f our library, like many
"if the present administration," says
Senator Manderson, of (Nebraska, in
Interview, "had only realized that
It would have been a good thllng to
follow the Americanism of President
I.'arrluon, lit would not ,be In its present
condition. The time Was gone Iby when
W3 can keep out of Uhe conflict among
ft, 3 groat powers for (the commerce of
the world. In modern times .the fight
for commercial supremacy Is the lm
pending conflict. "We used to fight
with the mailed hand of war, but now
we fight with the gloved hand of com
merce, and undoubtedly commercial
supremacy is only to be obtained by a
nation having coaling stations and sup
ply depots thlat are needed by modlern
uhlj. J think that an American must
feel a little sense of shlajme and be dis
tressed as he looks about him and
sjos how European powers are In pos-
f esslon and ownership of wh'alt may be
termed our outposts. We neither own
nor do we control any of the inlands
of the sea. England has the Bermudas,
which He on our threshold, and every
European power, no matter how small,
owns WJamus in the Caribbean 6ea
from Cuba on (the north, to the lower
Antllfiee, and yet these 1b lands are the
sentry ports of the Gulf of Mexico, the
commerce of which, especially to Cen
tral and South Amerloa, should be
ours. In the East, the result of the
Ohlna- Japan war, will be & change of
national conditions that will open in
the Orient new markets, and yet we
do not own an island between our Paci
fic Coast and Asia. Had Harrison been
re-elected, Hawaii Island would today,
I believe, have 'been a part of the
United States, and In the annexation
of the Sandwich Islands what has been
the purpose and aim of American
statesmen for nearly half a century
would have been accomplished."
That Is What thniiRririria
of people, speaking out 'of
ineir own experience, say to
mar mends in regard to
the most marvelous external
remedy known for all sorts
of pains and aches in the
back, limbs, chest or side.
