Tho war ne.vs is rapidly approaching
tho liRlitiiif ..otic. It is now kxmvn
that General Shuf tor's army has ar
rived at ha point of debarkation and
that nearly all of tho men havu been
landed in Cuba, and are netting ready
to open thu lighting campaign on laud,
and it is believed that the tirst expe
dition to thu Philippines lias arrived at
Manila according to thu program It is
duo there today. Unless the Spaniards
put up a much stouter resistance than
is expected, (Jen. Shatter is likely to he
in possession of Santiago before the
clos i of tho present week. It is prob
able that if our troops havo arrived at
Manila, they will, with tho assistance
of Dewey's Moot, go ahead and tuUo
that city without waiting for tho ar
rival of the rest of the troops, (icn.
Merritt will leave San Francisco at
onoo with the third and last expedition
tor tho present. It is understood in
Washington that as soou as our troops
are in possession of Manila, President
McKinloy will issue a proclamation an
nouncing the military occupation of
Philippine islands and declariug them
to bo under tho control of the United
States. Members of the cabiuut tuke
no stock in the European reports con
necting Germany with a scheme to ob
tain possession of the Philippines, eith
er through purchase or by force, and
it is nu open secret that the Germans
would have to tight if they tried to in
terfere in any way over there, further
than may be permitted by Admiral
Dewey for tho protection of the inter
ests of Gorman citizens.
The report that a Spanish licet had
sailed from Cadiz for Cuba is Heated
lightly by tho mluiihWtrntim , because
it is not thought that Spain would bo
apt to do anything that would ploa-o
us mi much a would the
ending of its la.st licet where wo could
get a whack at it.

hoi'i," each day thai the senate H, in
itler to stave oil a vote until adjourn
incut, ami they cannot M-ciire adjourn
ment without tin- consent of the house,
even if they could thu out a siilllcient
number of senators to get an adjourn
ment motion through tin senate. It is
therefore regai dod as .ccttain it? any
thing not yet accomplished can be
that the senate will adopt the annex
ation icsolution before congress ad
journs. Tho adjournment of congress
will depend cutitely upon how soon
the senate acts-, the house is ready to
adjourn at any time after that.
Secretary (Jage has changed his opin
ion about the willingness of thou1 who
have $,100 or less to invest to absorb the
untire $200,000,000 in bonds to be issued
under authority of the war revenue
act. It is now practically certain that
tho big bidders, some of whom olVercd
a premium of one per cent, will not
got any of the bonds, as the act under
which they are issued gives the small
investors the first chance to buy all they
want at per, and it seems certain that
they will want them all.
Secretary Alger characterized as "an
infamous lie" thu report that a clash
between himself and General Miles
had resulted in taking command of the
army away fiom Miles. (Sen. Miles is
in Washington, holding conferences
with president McKinloy andSecietary
Alger concerning the Porto Hico expe
dition, which he will command in per
son, and which will be started as soon
as the government gets the ships nec
essary to transport the army.
Tho cabinet lias been discussing the
possible need of more troop-i, and
knowing ones are pi edieting another
call for volunteers in a few days. The
idea of this additional is to get men
enlisted ami in camp so as to have
them in proper condition should it be
found necessary to postpone the gen
eral invasion of Cuba until fall some
assert that the invasion has already
been definitely postponed until that

Representative Underwood of Ala
bama, in wliosedistrict Hobson's home
is situated, lias introduced a resolution
extending the thanks of congress to
ilobson and his crew, and authorizing
llobson's transfer to the line and pro
motion to lieutenant commander.
Late advices from Admiral Sampson
give detail of the wondciful courage of
Lieut. Blue, who, on foot and without
companion or guide, succeeded in en
circling the bay of Santiago within the
Spanish line, and counting the en
emy's vessels in the hay, with the re
sult of establishing the fact that all of
Admiral Ccrvcra's ships are bottled tip
there by Sampau.i'.s aquadrou.
The London Spectator warns the
"cencert" of powers in Europe that if
they really want to make America a
first cla-s. lighting power all they will
have to do is to keep on talking of ir-
torforctice with her in the Philippines
or in i lie matter of terms of peace
with Spain. That will put Uncle Sam
on his mettle quicker than anything
else and lie will soon havo an army anil
navy competent to deal with a "con
cert" or any other old thing.
The Madrid Impircial.ono of Spain's
leading newspapers says: "It is a fact
well known to all Kuropcau statesmen
that only by means of armed force sta
tioned in thu late confederate .status,
has the Washington government been
able to preserve the semblancu of peace.
Even now the new gcueiation of the
confederacy is but waiting the word to
revolt. When war is declared, General
Lee, who has been consul general at
Havana, and who was kicked out of
Cuba by General Blanco, will raise the
standard of revolt in tho old southern
confederacy. This Leo is tho same Leo
who was gcncral-iu-chiof in tho civil
war in 1801 acd 1805, and whose sur
render to General Lincoln in the last
named year broke the revolution. His
acts at Havana were for tho purpose of
plunging the government into war
with the kingdom of Spain, at which
time ho and his followers would riso
against President McKiuley."

by the house, and to secure a favorable
report on the bill from thu committee
The labor men called attention to the
failure of tlto corporations to say a
word against the bill, which merely
makes tho present eight hour law op
erative, when it was before tho house;
also to thu fact that tho bill would not
interfere with or hamper poveinmcut
war contracts, because it expressly ex
empts from its operation military aud
naval work in times of war. In an
swer to the argument that with their
men only working eight hours a day
forty-eight hours a week American
shipbuilders could not compote with
Europeans, it was shown that the men

more ships are built than in any otic
country, only wirk lifty hours a week.
