"Already we have become accustomed to despotic sway exercised by the President of the United States over millions of human beings in Cuba, Porto Rico and Manila and other portions of the Philippine Islands. It does not even jar upon our sensibilities to know that a President of this republic is exercising powers not only greater than those exercised by the Prime Minister of England, but as great as those of the Czar of Russia. According to his own judgment, he makes and unmakes tariff laws, navigation laws and municipal laws for these millions of human beings. He even establishes a censorship so that his good people in America shall not be disturbed by unpleasant information. These despotic powers are necessarily incident to military rule. They must and should come to an end at the earliest practicable moment. We cannot afford for our own sakes to become too much habituated to this kind of government, even when it is a government in distant parts and over subject races or races under our protection, lest we lose somewhat of the 'eternal vigilance' which is the price of our own liberties.Wм. B. HORNBLOWER, New York.
