A'arfi Atlantic Squadron Ordered
to Begin Blockade of Havana
Woodford Leaves Madrid.
Wamiinuton, April 'Jl War between
the United S'ates and Spain is a fact
though not formal!. declared by eon- I
gross. The stirring events of yesterday
wlio succeeded today by others of
equal importance, culminating in tho
afternoon iu orders for the tie
parlure of tho north Atlantic .squadron
for Havana.
This practically is an act of war, so
thsit war between this country and
Spain may fairly bo said to dato from
today, April '21, 18'J8.
Two minutes after the opening of
the state department this morning
came word from Minister Woodford
that i ho Spuiish government, having
anticipated utid prevented his intention
to present tho president's ultimatum,
he hail asked for his passport-.
Tho president, in a public .statement,
said the action of the Spanish govern
incut rendered it unnecessary for any
other negotiations, and stated further
that he regarded the course
Spain ,is one placing upon that coun
try the responsibility for tho breach of
friendly relations.
Mr. Woodford's telegram resulted iu
the calling of a special cabinet meeting
to arrange an outline of a plan of cam
paign, or rather to determine how to
nogiu the execution of the plan of cam
paign already prepared by tho stratcgi
b lards of tin army and navy depart
ments. The immediate result was an older
for tho North Atlantic squadron to be
gin tho blockade of Havana. How
ch further than this the cabinet
proceeded in its deliberations it is im
pnsiiin to say for tho obvious reason
th it ihe time has now come when the
interests of tue governmi ut require
that -he nioveuu uts of ships and troops
should be guarded with the greatest
I'aie from undue publicity in order to
prevent the enemy from taking advan
tage of infdi mation.
A dispatch say Spain's reply to the
United State- may take tint form of

has bet n mobilizing at the Cape Verde
islands for some days past, sailed on

The proud spirit of man vaunting It
self to be something great, is biought
to tin dti-l hv invisible creatures Unit
permeate the system and gradually
weaken the forces preparatory to tho
one great titiiveisil humbling.
Tlie uni ighteoiis nation whine guide
is passion, ami whose god is gold, whine
spirit settclli its If like a Hint against
mercy ami tenderness, has its day.
Its own wilfulness prepares the way
for its destruction. The small within
it are used to confound the mighty.
To the sea, to the man, lo the nation
goes forth tho Mat "Thus far shall thou
go and no further!"
Thunder is not the voice of Coil,
neither is clamor the voice of the peo
ple His is tln still voice inaudible
to the world that holds the planets in
their silent orbits, uuil the seasons to
their recurrence, that gives the dry
land its bounds, and to lives their
sphere. The marshaled hosts of tho
niglitlskics, and the dumb ache of the
trial-pertected soul both unite to give
tone to hi.s voice. The voice of the
nation is heard in tlie majestic quiet,
which, alter much trial from evil,
speak Iu acts that break down resist
ance, or it may even bo heard iu the
silent suffering that seems to puss un
noticed, save for the attentive ear of
the one to whom tho fall of a sparrow
is known. Hut, soouer or later, the si
lence of effoit or suffering becomes a
noise of victory theoppressiou ceases,
and tho voice of tho people mingles
with the voice of Cod.
Let us apply the thought. Haughty
Spain is loitering to national doom.
It has ever oppressed without wisdom,
and slain without reason Its IiuiiiIk
have been imbrued in tho blood of its
finest children, from the peiseculiou of
tlie .saints to the ovpollingof tlie Moors;
from the couli-cution of, Jewish pioper
ty to the gat In ring nt wretched Cu
bans in sliii ve. The dumb tongues
have been gathering volume all the-e
ages, the have ciieii out for vengeance
and they have been heard. Tho bru
tality to tlie helpless and harmless is
the lust diop in the brimming cup of
wrath. The small mid the oppressed
are the chosen instruments of punish
ment; tor it is these uou-coiiibaluuts
who Iiiim) aroused the thinking w.irld,
and a mighty neighbor. It is their
fceblo pipings; and the stern voici of
those who would die tor them that
shouts at last to proud Castilo "Thus
far ami no farther!"
The great deeds of the past in which
we profess to tiace Cod's hand and in
terference iu the atlairs of men, have
over been wrought by men's hands.
Miracles and men woik together. Di
vine inlltioueo comes through human
mediums, and thus now as we a na
tion that hath itself been brought up
through great' tribulation aio spend
ing our best, our blood, if need ho our
selves for tliosi too sunken to know
scarcely what is being wrought for
tlioni we, I say, aro where the great
uusellisli ones have stood before us

now sees clearly that there bo things
moro precious than gold, and that 0110

Tho great parable of brotherly love
shows us that the neighbor of the na

establish its neighborliiiess by being week and expenses for man with rig

tilde is the altitude of the CoodSuni ur
itan. Our jiistiiieation for interfering
with those who aio not blood of our
blood, nor llesh of our Mesh, is simply
hit. jiistiiieation "I saw need ami I
met it, I saw sufferirg and I bent to re
lieve it; I saw evil treatment and 1 un
did tlie work of the thieves." And tlie
morning aftur the relief he went on bis
way. So shall we. We have neither
part nor parcel iu Cuba when the deed
of merciful force is douu. When the
sick aro 1 cf rcslied, and comfort is giv
en, we have our duties hero at home,
ami they their privileges there at their
home, and the two homes are not one.
Thus, just because no nation on earth
can read selfishness in our majestic re
litikiugs and our tender miiiislratioiis,
no one has reason for putting restraint
upon us.
We declare that nearness entails to
sponsibilitv; for the strong one who
can defend U the one who ought to
defend the near one who is oppressed.
Wo declare that force must bo met
by force; for savage beasts have 110 re
spect foi gentle voices. A lightening
grip upon the throat, and a belaboring
cudgel were the only arguments for
blood'hounJs whose jaws drip with in
nocent blood.
We declare that tho moderation of
the stench of cruelty ami cf war bo
ncatli our very nostrils has been prom
ised again and again, only each time,
for the piomise to be broken, ami wo
therefore declare thai Spain has neith
er power to put down the insurgent
government norsetup the autonomoii
The voice of tho people has spoken
after silence too long, and hesi'.auey
even fatal; but the quiet solemnity of
its voice, the power ami the volume of
it, bespeak a national utterance from a
national heart, 1 hat pulsates with one
mighty throb iu unison with every deed
of nobility over done. Vox I'oiTi.t ,
