The full story of Spain's downfall from
the proudest and most powerful empire
in the world to her present estate would
form one of the moHt impressive and In
structive histories of modern times. No
historian ha written It. I'reecott in

of the Dutch Republic. Washington Ir
ving In Lie (Iranuda have each told a
chapter, but the complete account of
Spain's decline and degradation U a
theme that Mt III await the careful and
scientific pen of some Motley or Tree
cott of today. Three hundred and fifty
yearn ago the King of Hpain ruled over
Spain, Austria, Italy, Holland, Helglum,
(Jormuny, part of France, all of South
America except Brazil, a large part of
the Kaet Indies, and nearly all of North
America including this very Nebraska
which hns thin week eent one regiment
to the I'hlllipplnes to take away the
last Hpanieh possession in the Kast Indies
and another to Cuba to flnieh taking
away the last land hold by Hpain in the
woMtern world. The ruler of that spleii
did Hpanieh Ktnpire matched himself
against a monk named 'XafUn Luther.
The ruler had armlee, navies, the wealth
of the world and the land of two hem
isphsrss. Tb monk bad ft fearless
spirit, a new truth and a printing press.
Today the religions descendant of that
monk are stripping the Kingdom of, the
It took seven hundred years of con
tinuous lighting to establieh the modorn
Spanish nation. The period ends with
the marriage of Ferdinand of Aragon
and Isabella, of Caetile iirl409 and the
new period of Hpanieh glory begins with
the discovery of America in 1492. The
grandson of Ferdinand and Ieabolla
was Charles the Fifth who ruled over
the great world Ktnpire already referred
to. After him came Philip the Second
who raised the greatest fleet and army
of that age to conquer England and
make it a Hpuuieh province. The pluck
of tjuoai Klicuboth and our English tore,
fathers together with the stormy seas of
their inland home prevented 1'hilip from
doing the Job.
1'hilip the Second tried to prevent the
people of Hollund and llelgium from
thinking for themHelveeon religious sub
jecte. When the people there pereieted in
thinking for themeelves just the same
1'hilip tried to ram the orthodox way of
thinking down their' throats with Are
and steel. This made the long-suffering
Hutch rebel and dually wiu their inde-
itendouee after a forty years war. After
'hilip the Second died in 1S'J7 his son
1'hilip the Third was made King. This
king was au Imbecile or in plain 1-n-glish
a natural boru fool and bis gov

Omaha, May 19, 1898.
for Spain's downfall the expulsion ol
the Moors Is often overlooked by writ
ers in citing the reasons of thut nation's
ruin. The Moors were the sciontlets, the
literateurs and the skilled mechanics und
agriculturalists of Spain. The tealots
f erdinanu, isuueiwt. me i nuipsauu uln
ars who bad freed Spain from the pres
ence of the Infidel, robbed it of the ele-1
moot which had developed and diversifi
ed its intellectual aud industrial activi
which hod friren it a olaoe
among the great nations. Wben the
Moors wore mrcea out a gap wa mwn
la Spain's social and Industrial system
which hits remained unto this day. This
Is why there are only two classes the
rich, retrogressive and indolent, who
constitute Spain's aristocracy, direct its
politics and furnish officers for its ar-
roles, ana tne ignorauc ami miuuns
peasants who do the country's menial
unrb ihn nnit.ivntd the soil with the Im
plements of a dozen centuries ago. and
who constitute tne ratiK ana nie 01
Spain's soldiers. Except in a few cities
and industrial conters there is an absence
of that middle class comprising the arti
sans, the skilled workers in tbe various
handicrafts, tbe skilled agriculturalists
and the merchants who constitute the
element of stability, conservatism and
balance in great states. ''
; When all these defects and delinquen
cies. In Spanish character and society
bftvelboen intelligently grasped the rea
son why Spain's magnificent physical
heritage cosnted for nothing, and tbe
causes of ber swift and continuous fall
among the nations became plain. y a
bill ol I'ope Alexander VI, In 1493,
Spain was granted all tbe land In the
new world west of the Azores and the
Cape Verde Islands. Spain eventually
?ot all the rest of South America, except
Irazil, all of Central America and the
West Indies, with Mexico, Fiorina and
(by the French cession of 1708) nearly
all of tbe United Stages which Is west of
the Mississippi river. ,.,,'
The effects of the lollies and vices of
the Spanish character begau to reveal
themselves in the beighth of ber power
aud under tbe greatest of her rulers,
lteverses came to tbe great Charles often
in the closing years of bis reign, and in
despair be threw down the crown in
1550, retired to a monastery and died
two years later, ,
All of Philip's successors, except Char
les III and Alfonso XII, bad most of
these vices, with cowardice, licentious
ness and Incapability in addition, and
nearly all of tbem put unworthy per
sons in charge of affairs and kept compe
tent persons out. Philip bad great war
riors, Don Juan of Austria, Alba and
others, and had capable statesmen.
Under Philip IPs Imbecile son, tbe
third Philip, (1598-1 021), the expulsion
ol the Moriscoes and the thirty years'
war, which started during that mon
arch's lust davs antl ended in the reign
of Philip IX (lOaMUtto), further
weakened Spain. During the latter
king's rule the Netherlands were lost to
Spain forever; Portugal, which was sub
jugated in Philip IPs time (In 15M1), re
guiuiHl its inteHindeiio (1010); Naples
a nd Sicily rose in rcbelllion and Spain
lost three fleets in war and was defeat
ed suiivissiviily by Hutch ami French.
The ill luck continued during the days of
Charles 11 (10i;.V170). Spain was dis
astrously beaten again bv France ami
her armies almost annihilated. The rule

The Hritieh gave Havana back to Spain
at the end of the war in 1703. In tbe
treaty of the name year, in which France
liave up ull her territory in North
America. France gave Canada and her
territory between the Alhghenies and
tho Mississippi to England and ceiled all
her domain west of the MiesiHslppi to
Spain, la Spain's other war against
England and in alliance with France
(1770-S3), Spain and France endeav
ored to take Gibraltar from Kngluud,
which England had wrested from Spuin
in 1704, but the allies were defeated,
This conflict took place in the closing
years of the war iu which tbe American
colonies secured their Independence from
England. Excepting us It thus indirect
ly aided the Americans during the clos
ing part of their war for freedom, Spain
was neutral through that struggle, 'al
though Hpaln's ully, France, assisted
the Americans from the beginning of
1778 to tho end of tho war for indiqtend
ence at Cornwullis' capture on October
17, 17W1, Hpain, even under tha com
pari lively enlightened Charles 111, forsuw
a peril to Hpauish rule in the new world
through the rise of a great free nation to
tbe east of the Mississippi and hence
Charles resisted Louis A VPs persua
sions in 1777 78 to assist the colonies In
In their war ugainst (Irout Hrituiu. Not
that Charles hated England less, but the
Americans more.
In 1800 Spuin ceded book to France
tbs torrltory of Louisiana, which she ob
tained from France in 1703. and France,
through Uonaparte, sold Louisiana to
the United States in 1803, to the lasting
anger and grief of Spain, which had es
peciul reasons for keeping the Uultod
States from incrnusing Its power.
In 1808 Napoleon Hoiinparte's brother
Joseph was put on the Spanish throne
and held it until fate turned agulust the
great Corslcan in 1814. Then Ferdinand
was restored and through tuony vicissi
tudes of fortune was titular king uiilil
1833. It was during Joseph Hono

were' continued when Ferdinand got
buck to power, and by 18'J5, when
Peru's freedom was made secure, Spain
bad lost all ber once imperial domain in
tbe New World except Cuba, Porto Itlco
and a few othtr Islands. Ferdinand's
daughter, Isabella II (1883-08), wbo
was defective mentally and morally as
Ferdinand or Ferdinand's father, sent
Spuin to a still lower depth in weakness
and degradation, but that country
made a short rally In the reign of Isa
bella's son Alfonso XII (1875-85), He
tween tbe beginning of this century and
the end of the third and latest Carlist
war in 1870, Spain had thirty-nine re
volts, rebellions or revolutions, usually
incited by the mental and moral degra
dation of ber monarcbs.
(From the Chlcugo Evening Post,)
It wns 2 by the town clock which
drowsed above the public square,
Around the court house was arranged
a mob of wugons, gigs, buggies and
vehicles of various kinds. Hie soft
spring wind fanned the dust of the
little Illinois town, un tne -common
a group of boys were playing "mum-blciM-g.
The dingy walls of the court
bouse loomed up among the toll, bare
trees, which had us yet put forth no
npprccluble evidences 01 ttie season.
The scdiool house, a building of con
siderable pretensions, with a spacious
yard for the play ground for its schol
ars, stxMxl on the corner of an adjoin
ing street of the public square and
from the open windows fame some
times the sound of childish voices.
In the. court house a case of great lo
cal celebrity was being tried, and the
furmers from the country around were
there in full force to listen to it The
streets were more than usually quiet,
the interest of the town loafers licing
foctiKsed In. the law suit and their lack
luster faees thereby transferred to the
court house benches. At the stores
little business was apparent, two old
Indies pricing calico und a lank rustle
buying a plug of chewing tobacco
comprising' the quota of purchasers.

All nt once the bell on the ilourlnff
mill moved, rocked and began Ut ring.
It, was one of the usual slirnuls of Are
In the slceov little town, and immedi
ately the public square exhibited signs
of excitement. Horses lifted their
drooping ears and watched with mild
furiosi tv the various evidences of a
country town conflagration. Tho Are
company with commendable alacrity
(nine ilusli nir bv. and the small boys
left, their inline and rushed after the
engine with wild whoops of joy. Dogs
burked nnd everylKsly on the. streets
anxiously asked where the fire was.
Then the bell in the lluptlst church
steeple rung out so strongly and sud
denly that everybody paused and
looked at his neighbor qiiestlonlngly.'
Then the bell In the Methodist church
iinswcdeil sonorously, und finally all
the bells in that ouiet hamlet ranir a

The Are engine hurried lswk to tho
engine bouse nnd put up their horses
and ran the hose cart Into it place.
"Doe" Strode shut up shop and rushed
down street toward the drug store.
The judge adjourned court and the
entire audience, witnesses, litigants
nnd spectators jioured exclknlly into
the streets. The gray haired judge
mounted the steps of the eourt nouse
and began U harrangua the crowd.
Ami from the ground and from the
country roads came the volunteers. It
seemed as if the sound of the bells had
otMMied the gntes ut patriotism and
that a million men went inarching
past. The volunteers gathered fast
under the trees where the old judges
fiery words were echoing and there
were tears on many checks as the boys
lined up to listen to the eloquence or a
man whose services on many a bloody
field entitled him to respect In that
hour. ,
"Doc" Strode was everywhere. He
had the comnanlea form in military
precision and stand at attention, In
the midst of the oration that came
from he court house steps there came
a sound of music. Away down the
slret, faintly at first, but growing
clearer and clearer, came the shriil
squeal of fife and challenging roll of
drums. Then the blare of tho brass
Instrument added to the volume and
the strains of "The Star Spangled Han
tier" rolled gludly along the streets,
and a hundred flags blossomed from
windows nnd roofs. On and on the
band came, while cheers followed and
almost drowned the music. Men with
empty sleeves stood side by side with
men whose first baptism of war was
yet to be. Women mingled with the
crowds, and the words of the venerable-judge
rose higher and higher and
nior vehemently as the enthusiasm
waxed greater.
It seemed ns If the entire country
side nod been sleeping on IU arms,
for from, every road that led into town
etimo the volunteers hurylng to Join
their comrades. Headed by the band
the boys marched up nnd down tne
public square to the cheers of men
ami women ami the waving of flags,
The 'firemen marched with them, the
citizens after the fire company and
evca the women and children, enthus
iastic Ut the cull to arms, followed the
rest. All stores nail Keen closed ana
flags were flying from every corner.
On the liberty iiole, where every 4th
of July the "big" flag flew, a greater
spread of stars and stripes than ever
before seen was- slowly being pulled
upward, t he cull lor troops had been
made and the question asked of the
iK-opie, and gludly hail the call been
answered, and ' answer of the peo
ple was Yes.
And more than all else, deeper than
the clang of iron bells aud keener
than the sound of piercing fife or re
sounding drum, wns the voice of eter
nal Americanism speaking from the
past; "1 sin ttbe spirit of your
