"Slated In Ita very narrowest compass,

holdera to be named by the President who
will administer their functions outside the

contend that Inasmuch as the extra con
stitutional powers are to be exercised out

far as thin country Is concerned Is n,t
an Issue of this campaign and they go
on to gay that even If It were dangerous
they would still he Itound to vote for It.
because to defeat It by the election of
the Democratic candidates would be to
bring about a money panic nnd that would
be too great a price to pay for the_se

to officers of a republican govrrnment
without endangering tho Integrity of
Democratic Institutions. Thetr preserve
tlon cannot endanger prorperty. but must
contribute to its permanence and to 'ts
What Imperialism Is.
"Imperialism is not expansion and the

perhaps the most extraordinary Incident
