According to the metropolitan press
the national bankers are opposed to

mands if the great dailies can be relied
on for tha truth.
The newspapers that have always

A PROSPECT OF WAR-
As Indicated by the dally Press,
Last Sunday morning prob
ably one of the greatest naval
battles ever fought in the
history of the world, took
place between Commodore
Duey commanding the U. S
fleet of the Asiatic and the
Spanish squadron in the har
bor of Manilla, Phillipine
islands resulting in the com
plete distruction of the Span
ish squadron with Blight
damage to our fleet.
Something like 400 men
were killed on the Spanish
side no official account of
how many were lost to the
American forces baa not yet
Later commodore Duey and
his force are now in full pos
session of the Phillipine is

States will hold until such

been assassinated last Tues

Porto Rico will in all
probability fall into our hands

expected to be fought there

From our Special Correspon
dent at Lincoln.
Our last war on its financial side was
sustained with greenbacks. The oppon
ents of Lincoln called the greenbacks
"rag-babies, Lincoln rags, and bloody
backs." Wall street and the whole
gang of northern disloyalists never
ceased to denounce Lincoln's money. In
those days the Kepubiican party was a
unit for the greenbacks. The boys in
blue defended them, liebold what a
change there is now I The republican
party has taken up the old disloyal cry
and has beguu to denounce the money
of Linncorn. Secretary Gage has been
down to visit the magnates of Wall
street and the house of Seligman promi
nent la the days of '61 is now closeted
with, the secretary of the treasure,
planning to issue bonds. The republican
party today under the leadership of
Gage, is but a reproduction of the old
disloyalist party led by Valandingham.
Out of the patriotic inopulse of the peo
pie who refuse to see -women and chil
dren starved to death in Cuba, they cal
culate to coin bonds s that our boys
when they return from the trip to give
freedom to the oppressed shall find ad
ded burdens to bear not only for tbem
selves but for their children and their
children's children. Like the old Tory
whom Patrick Henry spoke of, whe went
up and down the line of the American
batterios crying, 'Beef, beef, I want to
pay for my beef," the disloyal financiers
of today go along the line, under the lead
of Gage and Seligman, crying, "bonds
bonds, bonds, we want bonds," and the
sycophantic republican press replies.
"Yes yeu shall have bonds 1500,000,009
Today the reform forces in congress
represent exactly the same principles
and are inspired by the same patriotic
impulse that the old republican party
was when the north demanded the free
dom of the negro slaves. Their policies
aro the same, their schemes of taxation
the same, the money they demand is the
The bill reported to the bouse by the
Republican members of the ways and
means committee has one chief factor
the rest of the bill is planned to aid and
sustain them in getting that one factor
enacted into law and that is to authorize
the issue of 1500,000,000 of bonds.
The minority report of tha reform
forces in the same committee asks that
the old Lincoln policy may be smployed
in cod acting this war, namely a tax on
incomes over $2000 and the coinage of
the silver bulloin lying idle in tha treas
The position of the two parties is ill
ustrated by a story contained in a letter
of Abraham Lincoln to tha Boston com
mittee when he was Invited to help
them celebrate Jefferson's birthday
In speaking of the two parties at that
time be said that it reminde l him' of
fight be once saw. Both men bad heavy
overcoats on. At the end of tha fight
each man bad somehow fought hirnself
into the other's overcoat. That tha
republican party of 1890 represented
the Jefferson ian democracy, while the
pro-slavery democracy of that day had
got themselves around to tha position
formerly ocoupied by the federalist.
Today again w see tha same thing.
The Reform forces are now occupying
the plaoe and defending the same princi
plea which Abraham Lincoln, Chase,
Seward and hosts of others defended
in the dark days of '81 while the republi
can leaders at Washington have adopted
the policies and methods of the Valand
lnghams of that day.
Let a cry go up from this land that
while our young man go out to free
Cuba, we pledge our sacred honor that
that upon their return they shall not find
themselves or their children boadod for
generation to coma,
