OUR CONVICTIONS CONFIRMED.
"Vo have never seen what
there was and is in President
McKinley's course through the
Spanish war and that in the
Philippine Islands that would
certainly have been improved
upon had one of our party been
at tlie head of the government.
It is fair to presumo that no
y;reat political party w'U readily
commit suicide by putting up a
bad or incompetent man and if
by chance one of great talent but
questionably integrity be put up
he is apt to be set down. We
think Lie president entitled to
gror' " poet.
We take it, too, that when
heater, ni the polls, the next best
'.hkig ;.: Mting our own party
; ;. -power is in cheerfully ac-
.ae..;-'ng in all that we can con

ism would demand if situations

T " .i el .imhiar v. report of the

The commission shows that in
dependence was not expected by
the islanders and was never
promislied except by Aguinaldo
who proclaimed that the Ameri
cans would give them inde
pendence. The commission is satisfied by
study and observation that tho
Filipinos are not ripe for inde
pendence. Besides it is shown
that inside our lines the natives
have as nearly self-government
is they are capable of exercising
and that Gen. Otis has instituted
schools in which 6,000 children
ure being taught English.
Native policeman keep order
in Manila and business is good.
The commission is strongly of
the conviction that at no period
since the great Dewey victory
could the United States forces
have withdrawn with honor to
the muion or safety the natives.
For '..id vve withdrawn after
destroying the Spanish authority
it is believed that anarchy would
soon have reigned and the islands
would -have .been dismembered
and ruled: by the various govern
ments with less magnanity than
'ihe . report says "wo can't
from any point of view escape
the responsibilities of govern
ment which our sovereignity
entails and the commission is
strongly- persuaded that the
performance of bur national
duty will prove the greatest
blessing to the peoples of the
Philippine Islands." Again the
report says 'our control moans
to the inhabitants of the Philip
pines, internal order, a guaran
tee against foreign aggression
and against dismemberment of
their country, commercial and
industrial prosperity and as
large a share of government as
they shall prove tit to take'
As to desecration of churches,
the murdering of prisoners and
the committing of unmentionable
crimes by our soldiers, .(that it
was surprising should be
repeated with any credence) the
commission says it is glad to ex
press the belief that a wai was
never more humanely conducted.
There will be those who will
say the commission is Mr. Mc
Kinley's and allowance is to be
made. In view of the very ap
parent unfairness of much of the
criticisms we are ready to accept
the report of the commissioners
rather than the virulent critics.
The Southern Cotton Spin
ners' Association met in Char
lotte and fixed a schedule of
prices for their goods, advancing
rates to suit the advanced prices
of cotton. Are we not passing
away from the survival of the
and the out -tin oat
competition rivalry into a
broader and more hunmm 4 'live
and let live'' policy? We wonder
if trusts, combinations and or
ganizations for aggression and
restraint, by winch w
about to be absorbed,
mean the development ;
outirrowih of a svstem en"
socialism by which humanity,
while bowing to the inexorable
decree, "By the sweat of thy
face shall thou eat thy broad,"
shall yet be freed froai much of
the solicitude which too often
discourages youth, opens tho
door to disease, prematurely
frostenes the locks and multiplies
the cemetery mounds.
When the train pulled into
Charlotte Friday night with Ad
miral Schley aboard the hero was
discovered on the rear platform
looking about. He asked som 1
one what place it was. On being
told, he repeated the name
4 'Charlotte" and said: "Why,
there is quite a little crowd
here." It is quite apparent that
solid roads and historic tablets
cut no ice with a "sea lion." $

the endorsement of the most
noted physicians of the country
as to its superiority over all
others. Read what the noted
Dr. John Hey Williams, of Ashe
ville, has to say for Harris
Asheville, N. C.? April 24, 1893.
An extended clinical use of Har
ris Lithia AVater prompts me to
the statement that I regard it as
one of the best if not the best,
Lithia Water known to the pro
fession. In the condition of
Phosphatic Urine, its action is
marvellous. Its use in the Rheu
matic and County Diseases afford
me more comfort than either the
Buffalo or Londonderry Waters.
Very truly yours,
JOHN HEY WILLIAMS, M. D.
