Let us give this thought a strong and
timely turn. Nationally wo need it;
for by unfortunate chance many men
unprepared by study, unripo in judg
ment, ignorant of history nnd its teach
ings blutcnt boasters nre, during
these days of national testing, writing
headlines and editorials for soino of
tho most read American newspapers.
They arc causing at homo and abroad
a most unfortunate estimate of our na
tional worth, and thoy not only threat
en to but actually do make us look
ridiculous in the eyes of tho world.
Nor this only, but they sin ngainst us
and against the generations yet to
come, by giving us n false opinion of
Our nation is too great and has too
much reserve possibility of fnturo
greatness to be worthily led in its opin
ions by wi iters of noisy headlines that
twist the capturo of a freighter into n
notablo achievement, or who magnify
n skirmish into a naval engagement, or
who describe everything, good or bad,
in terms that nro never less than su
perlative. Tho day that Dowoy's vic
tory at Manila beenmo known, one of
theso blind leaders in New York, with
readers that numbered nearly n mil
lion, fairly frothed nt tho mouth ns ho
penned his editorial. A most moderato
lino was that "Strange- Asiatic fishes
aro now nibbling at tho moustaches of
tho haughty Dons," and "Wo own tho
western hemisphere, see!" This surely
is not tho American spirit, j-ot it gets
remarked upon as such. If in any
faint measure I can interpret tho real
American fueling, it was voiced in Ad
miral Dewey's own message, when
after mentioning his own victory in
most ordiuai'Vi terms ho closed by
saying ho was taking good care of two
hundred or more wounded Spaniards.
Oro scribbler for a paper that boasts
(I suppose becausn no nuws from Mars
mid the distant stars can bo gained to
disprove thu assertion) a circulation
"thu greatest in thu uniTerso" called
the Manila exploit "tho greatest naval
engagement in tho historj of tho
world." Such a writer is in tho con
dition ofjan illilorato man who knows
nothing except what has happened
during his own life time. From Semi
ramis to tho timu of our late war, tliero
have been a dozen naval engagements
that have alVectod tho map of tho world
more than this one will. Allowing
that it Is tho ill si decided battlo be
tween modern warships though Chili,
Peru, ltriy,il, .lapni and China have
given us i n it cli knowledge In that di
rection yet .tho Spaniards woru at our
mercy from tho outset. They were
caught napping to begin with, unequal

warfare would be brave Admiral Dew
ey himself. Boasting N excluded but
tho thing to be thauUfiil for is that his
courageous entry into the harbor was
jiisliliable, because thu Spaniards were
nut even tililu to cxplodo their sub
marine mines at tho proper moment of
cll'eetiveness. Had they .succeeded ill
damaging him these very same jour
nals of ill-balanced, ill-bred, brainless
boy men would have held ghost dances
ovei the grave of his reputation.
Before we accpt tho boasting stand
aid as one to rally around, h I us bear
in iiiiikI that wo are in combat with a
seventh rate power, whose liuanees are
In leirible condition, mid whose un
readiness is extraordinary. If our
gage of battle had been thrown down
in February of this year to some other
European power, whose .ships and men
weie absolutely ready to liuht. wo
should h ivo had to undoiibtely mourn
many terrible disasters before we were
able to rally for clTcctivo defence and
ultimate triumph iuuoboaiing man
ner, but only because our resources
aro so vast that with a war dragged
out to any length wo should undoubt
edly win at this end of the conflict at
tho last. Wo have done wonders in
mustering and cquipiug 100,000 men
and in instituting ell'eetivc coast pro
tections in about a month, butitis well
that thoy were not needed within n
week after the war began.
Then again, let us ask oursolvos what
this war is about. By every congress
ional declaration, wo must suppose it
to bo a deed of mercy towards a sutler
ing and down-trodden people other
wise would wo not have- chosen a lamed
and limping ndversary. Who ever
heard of righteous mercifulness blow
ing blasts of self-glorification? Boast
ing! There is no room for boasting!
With the dignity nnd thoroughness of
true greatness wo aro striving to do a
good deed. Theso violent Interpreters
of our doings who would make us to
stink in the nostrils of self-respecting
nations, aro, liko Kings' fools at a stato

The administration is highly pleased
willi lucent war news, and even more
so with tlie outlook. Admiral Samp
son only awaits the army win h ought
to be on the ground by now, to make a
combined laud and sea attack upon
Santiago an I to eaptuiu or destroy tho
Spanish licet now known to bo within
that harbor. It is impossible to say
how long this will take, owing to lack
of deliui'.o knowleilgr a to how strong
a defence the Imidfortilicatious will bo
ablo to put up, mid tiie amount of as
sistance the insurgents will civo our
laud forces. Although General Shafter
who is in command of the army seal to
assault Santiago, will welcome any as
sistance sent by the insurgents, his
plans are in no way di pendent upon
their assistance. Thu assault will be
strictly business from the start, a- tho
orders of General Shafter me to take
thu town of Santiago, and those of Ad
miral Sampson to tako or destroy
the Spanish licet.
Tho present program is to follow up
thu capture of Santiago with thu cap
turo of Porto Kioo, tho ilout going from
Santiago to San .Juan and troops follow
ing at oncu from Florida. The opinion
is strongly prevalent in administration
and diplomatic circles that if Santiago
and Porto Hlco can bo captured with
out ntiy delay, tho war will practically
bo over, ami that it will bo unnecessary
to send an army to Cuba for tho pur
pose of capturing Havana. Tho ground
for this opinion is tho belief that if
theso blows can bt struck in quick suc
cession Spain will roalizo that she has
been sulliclontly whipped and will ask
for poace, eousentiug to accept the loss
of tho Philippines, Porto Uico nnd
Cuba. But this opinion is not lessen

time Santiago and Porto Rico nro dis

In the course of a somowhat spiritod
roply to an intimation of Senator Allen
that tho money spent by the Bimetallic
commission during its visit to Europe
was wasted, Senator Wolcott, who was
tho head of that commission, used the
following language which shows that
ho still has hopes. "Tho experiment
which Is now being tried in India, in
thu opinion not only of tho bimotallists
of the world, but also of nino-tontlis of
tho gold men of London, where tho
situation lias been carefully studied,
will result in absolute mid entiro fail
ure, It will be impossiblo to impose
tho gold standard upon tho people of
India, In the face of this conceded
fact, I say ho is an enemy mid not a
friend of bimetallism who stands up in
this presence and talks about interna
tional bimetallism being a delusion ami
a snare. And yot it appears that he
has no argument to present, except
that embodied in thu statement un
true, unpleasant and undignified Hint
tho bimetallic commission took a larco
sum of money and squmiduied it,"
Mr. Wolcott stated that tho entire ex
pense of thu commission had not boon
$10,000. Senator Alien disclaimed any
intention to rolled upon anybody, but
reiterated his statement that tho ap
propriation to send a commission to
Europe had been made when it was
known that its mission would bo a fail-
