Victory lins followed victory from
tlio dny Hint Gen. Shutter's nrmy land
ed in Cuba and began tho land move
ment towards Santiago, and news of
tho enpturo of that town may bo ex
pected at any time, although there is a
possibility that Gen. Sliafter, inuring
gotten all the Spaniards in that vicini
ty rounded up inside tho heavy forti
fications of tlio town, may dofnr tlio
big battle until tlio ro-onforcciucnts
which aro on the way from Newport
News andTampa shall reach him. It
is very positively stated that Gonoral
Shaftor hns no ordors from Washing
ton further thnn to capture Santiago,
tho ways and mentis being left entire
ly to his discretion, and Gen. Miles,
who expects to go to Santiago In a few
days, from Tampa, with almost as
many soldiers ns Sliafter carried with
him, says lie is not going to interfere
with Shaftcr, who ho thinks will hvo
Sautiago bofore ho gets there, but to
assuuio charge of the military oper
ations of which Snutir.Ro, after its cap
ture, will bo niado tho haao. Shatter's
victories hnvo cost mora good Ameri
can lives and blood than the whole var
previously, but that was to bo expect
ed. Miracles like Dewoy's victory nro
not expected to be duplicated. Meu
go to war to kill and to bo killed.
Tho Spanish government should
have tho various stories which its cen
sor allows to bo telegraphed from Mad
lid for bamboozling purposes better
edited. Tho stoiies that tho Cadi.
Spanish lleet Inul started for Manila to
attack Dewey, and that a now ministry
was to bo formed to ask tho United
States for peaeo, tuu nut even consist
ent, not to say anything about their
probability. For that Spanish licet to
get to Manila would tako something
like live or six weeks, ami it would
havo to pass through the Sue, canal,
where its movoments could not be con
cealed; and Justus soon as this gov
ernment was informed nf its passage
through tho canal it could scud a $wlft
fleet across the Atlautic to give the
coast cities of Spain n tnste of tho war,
with tlio certain knowledge that Spain
would havo in lighting ships to opposo
them. Tho peace talk is thought to
hnvo beon sont out with tho hope that
it might delay our military operations
in Cuba. If so, a more absurd hopo
was never indulged in.
Diplomats who know tho Spanish
character woll regard tho publication
in Madrid of the statement that tho
United States had olTorod Spain terms
of peace Spain to surrender Cuba
and Porto Rico outright, and to cede
coaling stations in tho Philippine nnd
Cnroliuo islands as an indication that
Spain was paving tho way at homo to
ask for pence on the best terms alio can
get. They s.iy that the tigid govern
ment censorship of tho press in Spain
makes it certain that tho statement
was given out by tho Spanish govern
ment. Spain will not get peaco on as
good terms as thoso, as it is cortain
that she will not be allowed to retain
the Philippine? under any conditions.

point 10 an early w 'oby the sen .te,
possibly dining the coinli g week.
When tho vole is taken the usolutlon

much to announce the annexation on
July -I th.
Although some one hundred nnd fifty
odd members of the house hnd signed
a i cqtiest asking the couimittco on
rules would report a special order for
the consideration of the currency re
form hill, which was reported to the
house recently, at the present session,
tho bill will not be acted upon. As
n result of the very lively rumpus
in tho committee on banking and cur
rency, during which some memhtrs
charged others with having been guilty
of sharp practice in submitting tho
report which accompanied the hill as
having been approved by a majority of
tho committee, the committee ordered
tho bill to bo withdrawn from tho
house calendar. The bill now stands
ns though it had never been heard of
so far ns its ofllcial status Is concerned.
Should tho war end boforo tho next
regular session of congress meets, as
everybody hopes it will, nnd most
poisons bolleve it will, this subject of
curroncy reform will bo pretty near
tlio top of the legislatlvohcap, although
until tho majority of tlio senate is
changed in sentiment it will only be a
waste of time for the house to pafs a
bill anything like this one.

In a harangue on the battleship Pel

The so-called Spanish parliament has
been suspended indotinltely. It repre

and ho will quickly follow it into re

probably be the speedy result.
