Vice-President: ADIAI . STEVENSON, Of IMS. "A PITIFUL SITUATION." When the American army, under General Miles, landed on the island . of Porto Eico, it was received with joyful acclaim by the people, who raised the Stars and Stripes as an emblem of the freedom which had pome and -proof of, the tyranny" which had vanished. That was little more than a year and a half ago and these people who so warmly wel- - corned our soldiers then and enthu siastically raised "the American flag now hate the name of American and raise the Spanish flag which they once looked upon aa a badge .of tyranny. On the 4th of July there was no rejoicing and no American flags were visible save over the camps or the barracks where American soldiers are sta tioned or over buildings occupied ' by : American Officers or repre sentatives of this Government. A couple weeks ago they celebrated the annual festival of some Saint, a custom with them, observed all over the island. On that occasion there were no American flags visible but there were visible thousands of Spanish flags.. Commenting upon this change in the feelings of the people of that island the New York Herald editorially says: "Under the treatment to which they have been subjected bthe existing fovernment of the United States the 'uerto Bicans have learned to hate their new rulers. 'The latest article from thai HeralcT$ special correspondent bears unmis takable testimony to this disagreeable and disgraceful fact disgraceful to those who have denied the just expec tations of the people of the island and ' placed them under a yoke more irk some than Spain's. "All classes of natives welcomed the American army with open arms, accepted the Stars and Stripes with ardent enthusiasm and cheered to the echo their supposed liberators. Our army officers reported these facts, and the civilian Commissioners returned from the island with the same . story and strongest possible recommenda tions that the people be given the Ter ritorial foam of government they craved and frade with the United States President McKinley in his mes sage last December assuring Congress that it was "our plain duty" to open our ports to their products. "Dr. H. K: Carroll, who, as Special Commissioner, gave . public hearings in every part of the island and made an exhaustive investigation, reported 1 to President McKinley that many - Puerto Bicanshad long prayed for American intervention, and that un der the shield of the United States they expected the wrongs of centuries to be righted. They wsre confident that they were . to have the largest measure of liberty as citizens of the great Republic under the constitution, home rule as provided by our Territo rial system and free interchange of products with the United States. Largely attended meetings were held, and the unfortunate islanders fancied that they saw themselves entering up on a new and glorious era as citizens of the United 8tates. y ,4They were willing to be kept wait ing indefinitely in the Territorial stage, like New Mexico, for instance, but they expected to be treated by the United States as a mother treats her child. Tyrannical Spain gave the island free markets to buy and sell in, allowed manhood suffrage, sixteen full . Deputies and four Senators to the Cor tes at Madrid and twelve representa tives in the Municipal Assembly. Con trast this with the government im posed by Mr. McKinley and a Repub lican Congress at the instance of the protectionists the sugar and tobacco growers with the declaration that they are not Americans, but foreigners beyond the pale of the constitution, , and the imposition of a customs tariff upon their products. It is surprising that the Fourth of J uly this year was not observed by the natives or that at the festival observed last week the American fag was con spicuous by its absence in San Juan, while thousands of Spanish ensigns were flung to the breeze f The resent ment against Americans chronicled by the Herald's correspondent is precise- .. ly that might be expected to follow our conduct to the islanders. They find they have merely changed mas ters, and In .some respects the new masters are worse than the old. The commission appointed to revise the ob- noxious old Spanish laws has not vet left the United States to begin its du ties, and there is a touch of grim hu mor in the manner in which the native magistrates are rigorously applying these to (Americans that fall under their authority. It is a pitiful situation, and if the United States is to escape the reproba tion of mankind it must be radically modined. '. The Hermld is a non-partisan jour nal, so non-partisan that it some times hits the parties as if to show : that it takes special pride in being non-partisan; It favored McHinley's election in 1896, and as s between Bryan and McKinley, would prefer McKinley again, but it is opposed to such breaches of faith, and to such national dishonor as we have wit nessed In the treatment of the Porto Bicans and the Filipinos.' - Gen. Miles, under the impression v that he understood the purposes of the administration at Washington I and that he spoke for it, issued a a proclamation in which he assured the people of Porto Rico that their island would occupy precisely the ' same status under this Government that our Territories do, and that the neoDle would enjoy all the rigtits and privileges that citizens of the j Territories do. That proclamation wa I never revoked or in the slightest de gree modified, and it was never inti mated that General Miles had ex ceeded his authority, oi that there was anything in it that the adminis- tration did not sanction; and it went on that way until Congress Began to patch up a civil govern ment for the island to take the place of the military government. In the meantime President McKinley showed that he approved of the promises made by General Miles by making some suggestions in his message last "December in reference to our "plain duty" in the treat ment of the people of that island. It was his opinion that Porto Bico was a part of the United States, on the footing aa other" territories, and that its people were entitled to all the rights and privileges enjoyed by citizens of other territories. That is what he thought then and continued to think until the political contributors to Republican campaign funds brought their magic influence o bear upon him, changed his views- and caused him to re nounce his "plain duty" recom mendations. And then the Porto Ricans discovered that American promises didn't amount to anything, that they had been buncoed, that they had in their misguided faith repudiated one master to take an other, and that is why they don't raise the American flg any more and why they hate the Americans whom they welcomed with so, much joy. It is, as the Herald says, "a pitiable situation," and the pity of it is, we ourselves made it. The case of Porto Rico is not as shameful and dishonorable as the case of the Philppines where there was also breach of faith, for we have not yet begun to shoot and butcher the Porto Ricans, as we have been and are shooting and butchering the Fipinos, because they refuse to be buncoed. AFRAID THEY WILL LOSE CON GRESS. ' -While the Bepublican leaders pro fess a confidence (which they do not feel) n the election of their Presi dential ticket, they have grave ap prehensions that the Democrats will capture the next House of Repre sentatives, which would make the re-election of McKinley, outside of the control of patronage, a barren victory for them. In a i recent interview, Chairman Babcock, of the Republican Congres sional Committee, freely confessed that, he feared the loss of the House, which, in his opinion, could be held only-by hard and persistent effort. A good many of the leading Repub licans agree with him, among them being the New York Sun (not easily frightened), which in noting this in terview says: - "The Chairman of the Bepublican Congressional' Committee, the Hon. Joseph W. Babcock, of Wisconsin, underestimates neither the importance nor the difficulty of securing an ade- fuate Bepublican majority in the next ouse of Representatives. "That is the proper attitude for a campaign executive who has ahead of him such a job as now engages Mr. Babcock's interest and energies. "The margin of control in the pres ent Congress is none too large for com fort. The capture of the Fifty-seventh House by the party of Bryan and Acrui- naldo would be a national misfortune only second to the defeat of McKinley ana Jt&ooseveii. "The Democrats possess a great ad vantage in the positive assurance in advance of a solid block of 120 Repre sentatives from the Southern States. To secure a majority in the next House they will have to elect only fifty-nine additional members, and to acquire these fifty-nine members it is not necessary to carry a single North ern state for the Jf residential ticket. New York, for example, might go for McKinley by a large majority and yet send seventeen or more Democrats to to the House. And so on throughout the North. - "In the absence of the third Presiden tial ticket, it is likely that those ene mies of the Administration who style themselves anti-imperialists will con centrate their efforts upon the close congress aistricts throughout the country. That is to say, they will throw their rotes and whatever influ ence they can exert in a close district in favor of Democratic candidates without regard to the financial ques tion. They will pretend that the first duty is to save the republic from Im perialism, militarism and destruction.' "With or without this factor, there is a hard fight ahead in every close district in the country. Republicans who do not want the Bepublican Ad ministration to be blocked, hampered or embarrassed in 1902 and 1903 by a hostile majority in the House of Rep resentatives, and business men who do not desire to see the tide of Bryanism rise in any branch of the Government, had better not take . too much for granted. "Mr. Babcock is right Republicans should be up and doing in every Con gress not hopelessly Democratic." . Mr. C. B. Hatch, of Mt. Olive', arrived in the city last night to make arrangements for running several more excursions to Wilmington and the seashore this season from points in the interior.

The white people of North Caro lina are to be congratulated on the glorious victory won by them yes terday, victory jfhich means much for North Carolina now and here after. . . . The adoption of the constitu tional amendment solves, as far as the ballot box can solve it, the race problem and puts an end to the friction and incessant conflicts that marked every one of our political campaigns. This of itself is such an achievement that every true white man and woman in the State should rejoice over it, as should also every negro who has sense enough to appreciate the benefit it will be to him. The election of the Democratic State ticket takes the State Govern ment out of the hands of incompe tent time-servers and puts it in the hands of true men whom the' people of this State, whether they agree with them politically or not, can and do respect. And, last but not least, it means consigning to merited and perpetual oblivion the wretched gang of con spirators who to promote their own petty ambitions and feather their own nests, have done all they could to drag North Carolina down, and make it a political hell, in every election when their ambition or pockets might be affected. Few people think it worth while, or take any satisfaction in kicking a dead dog, but there is a feeling of relief and a sense of joy in realizing that North Carolina will no longer be an inviting field for the opera tions and the plottings of such un scrupulous conspirators and degener ates as Marion Butler, Hoi ton & Co., and their, henchmen, who resorted to such infamous methods to defeat the will of the people and make black supremacy perpetual. Retribution, long on.the way, has come at last and Ve may all thank God for this happy riddance of intolerable pests THE RES SHIRT. J ndging from the remarks o' some of our Northern contemporaries on the red shirt, they have some very erroneous notions about it. They seem to regard it as the representa tive of mob law and violence, when as a matter of fact it is the reverse. No one can point to a single in stance in this State where the peace was broken or a disturbance created by a red shirt man. v There have been some instances where speakers who had made themselves odious, or where imported speakers who came among our people to stir up strife and trouble by appealing to ignor ant negroes, have been given to understand that their presence was not desired, and they generally took the hint and retired from that lo cality. The red shirt has been really a peace preserver, and is worn by as good and law-abiding men as live in thisor any other State. It is no more emblematic of lawlessness and violence than were the white dresses worn by lovely women who thus at tired took part in the parades and white supremacy meetings, the suc cess of which meant so much to them. The red shirt is all right. FORECAST OP THE RESULT. Thursday's Election Will Qive 42,600 for the Amendment Measure.
