Does Not Mourn M’Kinley

     Mexico City, Sept. 21.—El Tiempo, a clerical organ, commenting on McKinley, says in the first place it should be remembered that McKinley was the most ardent apostle of imperialism in the United States. His policy, after taking possession of the Spanish lands on this continent, was a steady incorporation of the Antilles; the coasts of the great Spanish-American republics are strewn with coaling stations which will later serve as strategic points for a central blockade by means of which those countries may lose their sacred liberty. The naval manoeuvres about Colombia, said to be for the protection of American interests, are nothing less than a means for the acquisition of the Isthmus of Panama. Can such ambitions, more or less clearly manifested, cause the Spanish-American nations to weep disconsolately at the disappearance of a statesman who pursued them? Why afflict ourselves like vulgar mourners who accompany the foreign corpse to its sequlchre [sic], with weeping and wailing for the sad occurrence to the president of the United States.
