Tho Spanish Hag must got Boiled
down that is the universal sentiment in
congress. Theio are dilferent opinions
as to how, but there Is a gencial agree
ment that the rud must be the driving
of the Spanish Hag from Cuba. A
week ago there was some doubt as to
whether this .sentiment was held by
President MeKinley, hut his action
since eongi ess unanimously appiopii
ated $:il),000,()()0 for him to spend at his
discretion in preparing for national de
fense, have been those of u man who
expects to light, and tho delight ex
pressed over tho preparations for war,
which arc now vislb'e on every baud,
.show that the country's lighting blood
is up, which adds a little totheeei
tainty of war. Accoiding to tho gen
oral belief, it is now only a iiiestion of
how and where the lighting will begin.
Although Secretary Long has again
ollicially denied the renewed statement
that the president had been informed
of the nature of t lie report that will ho
mado by the naval court of inquiry.
There is no doubt that the president,
in common with everybody else, is
fully satislicd that tho report will ho
that tho explosion was on thn outii1u
of the Maine Of course, ho cannot
act until tho ollieial report is made,
hut ho can get ready to back up his ac
tion, and that ho is doing. Every ship
that can possibly bo inailo use of in a
war with Spain is being looked after
by naval exports, and uvery manufac
tory with a plant for making guns oi
ainiiiiition has received assurances
that tho government will, until further
notice, buy everything in that lino
tliey can make.
Tho only actual enlistment) yet be
ing mado aro of niou for tho two now
artillery regiments, authorized by con
gress, and of men for tho navy, but
the war department is getting togothor
arms, ammunition and accountromonts
for 100,000 men, so Hint thero will bo
no delay in gutting an army toguther
at short notice, as soon as tho first call
for volu tours is issued. How soon
that will bo will depend upon circum
stances. Wo aro already going abend
too fast for Spain, which is now show
ing au 'inxiuty todolay matters.
Seuor l'alo, the now Spanish minis
ter, who has just boon presented to tho
president, is either ignorant of the sit
uation or is making a gigantic diplo
matic hluir to inako us think he is.
Just think of tho nurvo of a man, now
whim tho opinion is universal that
Spain's last hold on Cuba is bound to
bo broken in tho near future by inter
vention on tho part of the United
States, either peaeably or by force, in
giving out a column newspaper inter
view in which ho enlarges upon tho
success of autonomy in Cuba, which
everybody in Washington knows to bo
a f.iiluio, ami become enthusiastic
over tlio reciprocity treaty, which ho
says ho expects to aid tho delegates of
tho autonomy cabinet in Cuba in ne
gotiating with tho United States. If
Sonor l'alo really expects to do as ho
says ho docs, the inside of his head
would make a lino study for a special
ist in brain diseases. Nobody blames
Sonor Tain any moro for talking about
impossible treaties than for being so
cock Hiiro that neither Spain nor tho
United States want war; it is tho busi
ness of a diplomat to protend to bo
lluvo what ho knows to bo untrue.
Nearly every day bringa a now i
mote or les elaborate sohemo for
soiiio sort of intervention in Culm by
his government before the public, but
President McKinloy's scheme, if hu
has one, is still unknown. I'ho latest
idea is that the United States shall do
maud of both the Spaniards and
Cubans that hostilities Mitill cease, and
that somn sot t of an arrangement be
madcwheioby the Cubans are to con
tiol Culm, ami to remain nominally
under contiol of Spain. The advo
cates of this scheme think it an all
mound good one because it would be
accepted by Spain, and beeatiso it
would obviate the necessity of this
government assuming control of Cuba.
They say that the Cubans are unfitted
for independent self government, and
that until the population becomes
much improved, the island would not
make a desirable accession to the
United States; therefore that tho logi
cal outcome is a Cuban government
under Spanish auspices. Hut all this
is put forwatd in the belief and de
pendent upon the contingency that
Spain will satisfactorily meet all the
demands made on account of the loss
of the Maine, and that wo shall not
have to light to enforce those demands
a belief that is heavily in the minority.
If the talk of an alliance between
England and the United States which
win starteit several days ago because
of a message of congratulation brought
to President MeKinley from Queen
Victoria, by the Hritish Embassndor,
was intended ns a feeler of public sen
timent, those responsible for It must
l)o convinced that no such alliance in
desired by any considerable number of
Americans. This country needs no as
sistance to whip Spain, and it it did,
England would bo the last country
from which our people would bo will
ing that it should cither be asked or re
ceived. England's assistance is an ex
pensive luxury for any country.

It is impossiblo for tho system
to withstand tho domum.H nmd
upon it just ut this soason, with
out tho asHistunco of a ootl puri
fyitig nnd strongthuniug tonic.
Tho changes which Nature decroe.-i
shall tnko placo each spring aro
ho severe that a breakdown is
almost sure to cotno. Jt is wibo
that all possible assistance bo
given during this period, as upon
this purifying process depends tho
health for tho entire summer.
Everybody just now should tnko a
thorough courso of Swift's Specilic
which thoroughly cleans'os tho
blood of all tho accumulated im
purities, tones up and strengthens
the entire system, and aids Nature
in renovating and ronowitig tho
body so as to rondor it healthy and
strong. Those who purify their
blood with S. S. S. at this season
aro well fortified against tho many
forms of diseaso so prevalent dur
ing tho dreaded heated tortn, for
it has boon demonstrated that tho
system that is thoroughly purified
in tho spring is well prepared to
resist diseaso all summer.
No othor remedy on tho market
is equal to Swift's Specific as a
spring medioiuo, becauso it is tho
only purely vegotablo blood rem
edy nnd is guaranteed absolutely
freo from potash, mercury nnd nil
othor minerals. It cleanses, puri
fies, builds up nnd strengthens,
lusiston S. S. S., for thoro is noth
ing lml f as good.
