Tho dotuon that bus been steadily
R nd relentlessly forcing Spain to win tin
national plunge, is preparing to close
tho compact, wherein Spain as a nation
four centuries ago chose wealth rather
than wisdom, and pride rather than
progress. Kven leaving out of consi U
oration for a moment the present con
flict in Cuba, the evidences of certain
national doom cau easily be read.
To render the thought moro ilotlnile
I will mako throo groups of weakness
any one of which will ho fatal to a na
tion in tho long run.
Colonial (Jkkkd If wo look back
at tho conquests of a fow centuries ago
when trequont tidings of now conti
nents and boundless woalth fired tho
souls of adventurous men, tho skirts of
no nation will ho found ontiroly froo
from innocont blond. But gentler
times have brought gontlor methods,
and tho valuo of having populous col
onies instead o'f ravaged mllos to rule
over is found to bo ultimately of tho
greatest advantago to tho homo coun
try. This is only another ovidenco
that tho world progresses. Hut while
the scales of inhumanity have fallen
from tho eyes of England, and other
nations that attempt to vio with her in
colonizing policies, Spain is us blind
ami cruel ns Pinrro in rem, anil Cor
to, in Mexico. With an absolute lust
for wealth tho new territories wetc
then regarded as fair prey to bo merci
lessly .stripped of everything valuable
and portable. The spirit of the men
who carved her vast empire out of a
new world has nniained unchanged
through the centuries. Whatever eol
onial positions were open have been
filled by Spanish nobility; in many
cases without regard to fitness of tho
pernio or the advantage of the colony.
Indirect gain from the development of
a colony has never been regarded with
such favor as tho direct results to bo
attained by squeezing out taxes and
farming out lucrative ofllces. In a pro
gressiva age, this is simply a mad spirit
ot solf-dostruction. Tho inevitable has
been tho loss ono by one, of tho very
jewel of hot' diadem of empore, until
uow ut of a territory onco unequalled
either in natural wealth for In extent,
there remains tho very minor posses
sions of Porto llico, Cuba and the
poptllil 1 HI el llllli. hlltllll Ids nf MmIiS
anils. I lie Mtleiit IViini.ius u-til, bj
vast irrigation works, tiitide this sandy
desert blossom like tho rose. In wine
eases they had constructed aqueducts
liuiiilieds of miles long, and even
pici ceil mountains in older that this
region might bo watered. The desert
is once moro triumphant. The con
queiors seeking and esteeming those
things only that could be gained ly tho
stvonl, neglected the real essentials of
pnispei Itj , and to this day the evil re
sults are felt. Mexico was a similar
victim. The .strange cieatures whom
Montezuma i tiled were exceedingly
progressive. Hut their works and
plans and agi ietiltural gains wete scat
tered to tho winds by the bloodthirsty
conquerors, anil to this day the spirit
lens Peon seems sunken beyond all
hope of revival. Thus everywhere, at
home, abroad, Spain lias prepaid! the
waj ' fin her own undoing
Tim: Gi(ami:i:3iikii'. For centuries
nfii the destruction of the KoiuiuiEm
pne bj lhe(ii)lhs unit Vandals, the In
man intelligence was pi ai'tically be
numbed. A pall of darkness was over
all; the nobles were almost as unlearn
e d as their serfs and the .serfs weru ut
terly hopeless. Aspirations lay like a
giant chilled by the cold. Hut since
that time stimulation of thought has
caused tlie great heart of the world to
throb with increasing power until tho
feeling of a common humauity thrills
in some degree even those Jtnost sepa
rated by birth and wealth. Hut against
the tendency of tho people to think
and act, hope and accomplish, tho
proud und stubborn spirit of tho Span
ish Grandcclsm has stood out reso
lutely. Tho rising tido of human as
piration cannot bo withstood. If a
government, oven though hoar with
ago or crusted with heroic deeds, try
to turn a deaf oar to tho cry of tho
poor for life nnd liberty, for education
and for hope, tho cry will not dio out
but its pleading tono will be turned in
to tho iiorco and fateful growl of a cor
nered beast. Thus has it boon with
Spain. Far moro organized than Ni
hilism in Russia, is Anarchism in Spain.
Tho nation is honeycombed with law
less sontimonts. Tho men in power
are under tho hopeless necessity of
guarding against tho homo population
as if it were an invading army. No
other government in Europe, not oven
Russia, is in so serious n condition.
Spain stands revealed before tho world
as not having controlled tho growth of
hope and thought, hut as having with
stood It. Tho incvitablo'.dis.uter draws
nearer each day, and is not delayed by
the fact that Spanish statesmen wel
come foreign complications as'oiTorlng
a favorablo diversion of tho direction
in which tho combativo spirit seeks to

WM SCOTT CAPTURED.
About tho beginnlug of tho 10th con
tury Spain, possessed of a lellgious
fury adroitly mingled with greed, ox-
polled tho Jews and Moors and conlls
eated their property. It thus inflicted
as severe a national injury to itsolf as
Franco did later when it drove out tho
Huguenots for it stripped Itself of its
best farmers andineelianics. In 1009,
I believe, It gavo agriculture a further
fatal blow by expelling .the Christian
ized Moors. As a consequence the
very basis of national prosperity is re
markably undivuloped In Spain. The
crudest implements are still in use,
and tho regions that tho Moors had
rendered productive, fell back to wil
duine.ss. Similar .short-sightedness
characterized her abroad. When Pi
zarro lauded In Peru, tho strip of land
fifty mid moro milts wide, stretching
from tho ocean front to the foot-hills of
tho Andes, supported a prosperous
Much moro might bo written, but
why multiply woids? Spain is being
hurried to her doom by tho blinding
forces within her. Her brutality in
peace and in war mako hor unworthy
of kinship with tho sisterhood of pro
gressiva peoples, Sho is a survival of
bloody times that havo from many na
tions long ago passed away. It will
indeed bo a strong historic parallel, if
the Anglo-Saxon race that first curbed
hor career in the western world, should
also be the one to finally expel her.

Burglar Who Broke Jail With Jack Rid
dle Captured Again.
Clyd Daily alias.Wm. Scott who with
Jack Kiddle escaped from the jail here
on the morning of August l.'itli last is
again here safely behind I ho bars and
SlierilV Wells knowing from past events
the nature of the man with i hum he
has to deal will take precautions tn see
that hi' docs mil esoape again. After
his escape a description of himself am!
pal was sent out by ,1. W. Huuclie,
tlienshorill, toolllcers of this and other
slates and, has also been in the N'ebras
ka Police .Journal and it is probably
these efforts which led to his capture.
The following from the Lincoln Eve
ning Call of last Monday tells of tho
arrest but tJio strange part of it Is that
a man upon whoso head thero was a re
ward and whoso description the jail
authorities must have read of again and
again should lay In jail for about a
mouth without being recognized.
"Iho polico made a clover capture
yesterday when Clyd Dajloy, alias Wil
Ham Scott, was arrested. Tho ariest
was brought about in a rather peculiar
way. About a month ngo Scott was
nabbedjas a suspicious character. Tho
hank of Rising had been robbed and
Scott and a counlo of other follows
were approhonded hero under tho im
pression that they might know some
thing of the robbery. They could not
bo connected with tho crimo, however,
and wore sent up for vagrancy nud on
Scott was just reloased from his term
lu tho couuty jail yesterday wheu ho
was recognized as being wanted in
Webster county, and so ho was again
arrested aud landed In the city jail.
After his identification to this extent
ho was also remttmborcd ns ono of tho
men with whom Jack Nash had a warm
experience about a year ngo when lie
was city detective. Nash nnd Olllcer
Kinney wore down under the viaduct
searching for suspicious characters,
when they ran upon Scott and a pal.
Tho lattor raced up tho Burlington
yards with Kinnoy in pursuit, whllo
Nash look after Scott, who sprinted in
an opposite direction. Nash and his
man exchanged several shots and Scott
finally crawled between somo moving
box cars and made his escape.
Nothing was heard from Scott until he
was captured hero, und tho polico did
not recognizo him until yesterday. It
is said th"t Marshal Wray of Havolock
was tho officer who identified Scott nt
tho county jail. As far ns tho local of
ficers know, nothing has beon found in
tho way of u traeo cf Scott's pal."
Sheriff Wells was notilicd of tho nr-
rest and went to Lincoln Monday, ro
turning.with Scott Tuesday evening.
