If Spain continues her idiotic war
and causes this country loss of life and
expenditure of largo sums of money,
the fight should be pushed until the
parliament buildings at Madrid are
laid in a&hes. They see that they can
not possibly retain Cuba, and the idea
of continuing the war is only an evi

ONE of the syndicate editors of the
Journal having absorbed some inform
ation from the sugar trust sheets which
have been opposing the annexation of
the Hawaiian group of Islands,
thinks the News is inconsistent
In advocating annexing a coaling sta
tion with a few inhabitants and oppos
ing tho annexation of the Philippine
Islands, with a population of 9,000,000
and located over 6,000 miles from our
nearest port. Hawaii is clamoring to
become a part of tho United States
its leading people being Americans.
The Philippines have been part or tho
Spanish government for over 300 years
are as unAmerican in principle as a
people could possibly bo. Tho man
who could see no difference in the sit-
uation has too many wnecis in nis
head to be able to comprehend much
of anything, and a discussion of tho
problem with such an individual would
only result in a waste of time.
Tho determination on tho part of
tho pro-blent nrid cabinet to push tho
war to as m' cly n termination as
possible ia In every way commendable
and an action tho people have been
praying for for months. Thorocan bp

for their determination to end tho

them put their determination into
action as quickly as possible at d all
people, save tho Spaniards, will ro
joico. What about the Philippine islands?
Well, the News says, drop them as
soon as- this bloody war is over. The
inhabitants are not fit for self govern
ment. We have no moral right to
hold them that money may be squeezed
from the unfortunates c aiming those
islands as a home. It will bo a sorry
day when this nation, forgetting the
fundamental principles underlying Its
existence and urged on by the lust of
conquest, shall turn this war from one
in the interests of humanity into one
of conquest. The voice of America
will bo all powerful in the future, but

at Manilla. He sails for Madrid on

Walter Wellman is showing a vast
deal of tenacity of purpose in carrying
out his plans for an arctic expedition
just at a time when everybody wants
to hear of tho war and many influen
tial journals would be pleased to se
cure his services to report it. He can
hardly be recused of undertaking the
work for advertising purposes, when
he slips off so unostentatiously at this
time of universal war preocupation
Mr. Wellman is an accomplished jour
nalist and an experienced arctic trav
eller. Something ought to como from
his sacrifice in going to the north jut
now. when most men of his nerve and
talents are moving toward the south
There is no question but what Dewey
will be rolicved at a very early date,
as t he Charleston will sail at once with
arms and ammunition, and the City of
Pekin and other transports will leave
San Francisco by Sunday, with several
thousand troops, supplied with a mil

Kev West is suffering from a water

cisterns for pure water, and the sold

Spain was once an aggressive nation.
She gloried in the warlike spirit of
her men, and her black flag of piracy
was the terror of the high seas She
waxed fat upon plunder, and her pride
was greater than tho limitations of
her unhallowed conquests. The former
is about all she has left. Her ignor
ance is deplorable and her arrogance
unjustified by any public act since she
discovered America. Rent by internal
dissensions and ripped up the back
abroad she has but one thing to look
forward to as tho- fitting finale of a
career of infamy, and that is oblivion

Major General Merritt, command
ing tho department of the east is said
to have been selected lohead the Phil
lipine expedition and to act as gov
ernor general of the islands. It is re
ported from London that 40,000 Span

go to the Phillipines with war ships,

may bo looked for.
Our fleet on the Pacific coast consists
of tho protected cruiser Charleston;
the monitors Monadnock and Monte

tross, Grant, Corwin, Rush, and Perry,
of the second class; tho Alert, an iron
cruiser, the Iroquois, Vigilant and
Active, purchased 6teamers. This is
tho only force which could roach Ma

true that their fleet is on its way to
the Philippines.

Weyler has offored tho Spanish
cortcs to lend a victorious army of
50,000 men across this country if
ordered to do so. The polico force in

to do if Weyler ever landed, but ho
values his hide at too high a figure to
think seriously of tho proposition.

Coramodoro Dewey's victory seems
to have put new life into tho govern
ment at Washington, and orders are
flying thick and fast to push matters
all along tho line.
Wednesday afternoon Wilham Rose,
of Fairmont, an old hunter, bethought
him that he would go out and get afow
ducks. Re borrowed a horse and
buggy and got about four miles. He
went to take the gun out and it was
accidentally discharged. The charge
lodged in the horse's rump. He put
the next charge in the horse'd head
and walked home. It is said the owner
of tho horso wishes to spoak with him.
Tho error in the translated cipher
dispatch from Dewey in tho figures
stating the number of Spanish killed
in the battle arose from the omission
of the word, "alone" by the translator.
Tho dispatch was that lo0 were killed
together with the captain on the Reina
Christiana alone." It was the mor
tility of one Spanish warship that
was given and not that of the entire
fleet. It seems likely that the slaugh
ter was dreadful amounting as is
claimed now to something like two
thousand, which was a number equal
to the entire force on the American
fleet. It was certainly the most re
markable battle in history, consider
ing tho small number engaged in it.
Miss Helen Gould, who recently do

Dewoy fought his marine battery at

or Saturday morning. A well known
gentleman, who is well posted In such
matters, s'tys: "While in theory a
man might figure either way around
the earth ns to time, still it is neces
sary in actual practice to have a fixed
starting point in oidcr that all may
figuro on the same basis and all maps,
charts, etc., may have their longitude
and latitude numbered to correspond
with each other.
"These two points have been arbi
trarily selected and aro the equator
tor latitude and the meridian of Green
wich for longitude. Most time calcu
lations, thereforo, begin at Greenwich,
and the almanacs which determine
the astronomical calendar days use
this as a starting point. If tho battle
of Manila was "fought at 5 o'clock a. m.

mean time at Plattsmouth was three
