Hypocrites? 1893.

It is evident that the American troops are to remain ashore and as Mr. Stevens virtually has taken possession of the country, we should consider the U. S. forces a sufficient guarantee for the preservation of law and order, and the Government could save the additional expense of keeping up an unnecessary armed force and dismiss the volunteers. It is amusing to remember the speeches by the reform members in the Legislature against the appropriation for the Queen’s Guard; where they stated that it was perfectly absurd to have any guards at the palace gates as that building was as secure (or more so) as any private residence. Now we see the same gentlemen consider it necessary to tax the treasury with the expense of having half a dozen armed men guarding the building, which one or two ordinary policemen heretofore were declared more than sufficient to look after.
